Society Before Organized Religion

What was life like before the spread of organized religion? In ancient times, when people were still followers of their old ancestral gods, people were TOUGH. Life as often said back then was brute, nasty, and short. Rape, torture, and the killing of women and children were widely practiced by heathens engaged in conflict with enemies. Slavery was widespread. Cannibalism and human sacrifice were practiced in many societies. Conflicts against neighbors and against people who looked different from you were the norm. This is not something that you were taught in history class. With the exception of remote communities that had little contact with the outside world, societies throughout the world largely practiced violence and revenge killings. Below are a review of some heathen societies.

The Alaskan Eskimos and the Athapaskans


Early-contact-period Eskimos are typically portrayed in Western literature as having been happy, peaceful, honest, smiling people who were friendly toward strangers. Alaskan Eskimos, however, described their ancestors to me as having been quarrelsome and warlike, and they supported that general view with numerous accounts of specific raids and battles.1Ernest Burch, Jr.

When people think of Eskimos they think of a gentle group of innocent people minding their own business. Ernest Burch, Jr, a noted researcher and anthropologist of the subarctic region differed. He had studied the indigenous peoples of Alaska over a 50 year span and concluded that like many indigenous people, the Alaska natives engaged in large amounts of conflicts and had strong animosities toward neighbors. Burch contributed a chapter in North American Indigenous Warfare and Ritual Violence, authored by Richard Chacon and Ruben Mendoza, describing conflicts between the native Eskimos and the Athapaskan people.

Historically, the Alaskan Eskimos lived on or near the western coast of Alaska. They comprised primarily of the Inuit and the Central Yup’ik peoples. The Athapaskans bordered the Inuit and the Yup’ik people to the east. They comprised of the Gwichin, Koyukon, Tanaina, Deg Hit’an, and Holikachuk people.

The Eskimos and the Athapaskans had engaged in high amounts of violence up until the 1830s. At that time they gradually became civilized and pacified upon European contact. Most of the reported conflicts of the Alaska indigenous people were Eskimo on Eskimo violence, though some were between the Eskimo and the Athapaskan people. Like many indigenous people, the Alaskan natives were highly tribal and defensive. Historically, the main reasons for violence among heathen people has simply been revenge. The Alaska natives were no different.

When the Alaskan indigenous people engaged in conflict, the goal was to kill as many of their opponents as possible. Women and children were not excluded. Because the Alaskan natives had resided in the same region for over 2000 years, they had plenty of grudges to draw upon whenever a source of tension sparked. In this remote part of the world, the population density was low. Leadership and specialization among the groups were weakly developed. Every able boy and man was expected to fight and defend when the situation arose. Customarily, raids and attacks resulted in the winning side making an attempt to kill all opposing combatants, save one. This sole survivor would be instructed to go back home and tell their people what had happened, as a warning to not mess with them again.2

Indigenous raid and battle sites. From North American Indigenous Warfare and Ritual Violence

The surprise attacks was one of the three main types of attacks utilized among the Alaskan indigenous people. The others were open battles and terrorist acts. Of the surprise attack, the most common tactic was the nighttime raid, when the residents were asleep. These were among the most frightening of all attacks. They were usually undertaken by one to two dozen men during the fall, when the nights were longer but the snow-pack relatively light. Burch describes the situation:

The general procedure of the nighttime raid was for the members of the attacking force to sneak into a settlement when its residents were asleep in their houses or enjoying some kind of festivity in the kashim (community hall). The objective was to catch everyone inside the buildings and block the doors. Torches and flammable material were then dropped into the buildings through the skylights. After the fire and smoke had had sufficient time to build up, the door was unblocked, and the people inside the building had the alternatives of staying inside and suffocating or burning to death, or trying to escape and being clubbed or speared to death.

If surprise was complete, and if everyone in the target settlement was trapped inside a blockaded building, a nighttime raid could be devastatingly effective. Everyone in the target settlement would be killed. In the Y-K Delta, where the men and older boys slept in the kashim raiders sometimes contented themselves with investing it and restricting their killing to the men inside. They might rape a few women and steal a few things, then leave. Alternatively, they might kill everyone and they frequently set many of the buildings on fire.3

Burch describes one surprise attack when a party of upper Kobuk River Koyukon encountered the upper Noatak River settlement of Makpik. The active male inhabitants of Makpik were off on a hunting expedition some distance away. This gave the chance for the Koyukon to make a surprise attack on the village.

The raiders waited until the hunters had gone, then made a daylight raid on the settlement, killing all of the elderly men and children in the camp and all of the women except two, whom they took as captives.

If a raid was a failure, the defenders attempted to annihilate the entire attacking force—save one. That one was given some food and any necessary first aid and was sent home with instructions to tell his countrymen what had happened and to warn them never to attack the victors again.

Though the focus was on the Alaskan Eskimos, this could more or less be applied to Eskimos in general, as they also resided in Canada, eastern Siberia, and Greenland. The Copper Eskimo (Inuit) lived in the Kitikmeot region of present day Northwest Territory of Canada. Their name was given by the English settlers because they relied on copper gathered along the Coppermine River. Lawrence Keeley in War Before Civilization: The Myth of the Peaceful Savage, disclosed that:

The Copper Eskimo, experienced a high level of feuding and homicide before the Royal Canadian Mounted Police suppressed it. Moreover, in one Copper Eskimo camp of fifteen families first contacted early in this century, every adult male had been involved in a homicide. Other Eskimo of the high arctic who were organized into small bands also fit this pattern. Based on figures from different sources, the murder rate for the Netsilik Eskimo, even after the Mounties had suppressed interband feuding, exceeds that of the United States by four times and that of modern European states by some fifteen to forty times. 4

Louis Bird, a Cree Indian elder, describes an incident that occurred on the Hudson Bay settlement, Cape Henrietta Maria in present-day Ontario, involving the Inuit:

(This) was a long time before the European came into the scene. And there was no guns and other European trade goods. And this raid from the Inuit warriors attacked the group of Omushkegok people, mostly women and children and the elders, while the men were hunting … the Inuit descended from their hiding place and attacked the camp, killing all the elders and the children and women. And also being so excited by killing, they begun to act very strangely and very savagely which led them to cut the breast of the women who were … nursing the children. 5

Though there may have been some exaggeration in the narration of the above account, provided that it came from a rival of the Inuit, this similar story was confirmed by Nicholas Jeremie, a settler who worked at a trading post on Hudson Bay early in the eighteenth century.

James Knight, a Hudson Bay Company trader, discloses:

“Them Natives to the Norward [of Churchill, Manitoba] are more Savage and brutelike than these [Chipewyan] and will drink blood and eat raw flesh and fish and loves it as well as some does Strong Drink”. Confirmation that the Inuit were not to be trusted came in 1719 when Knight, who left Churchill in two ships on a voyage of discovery to the north, never returned. The remains of the ships were discovered in 1722 by Captain John Scroggs, who reported that “every Man was killed by the Eskemoes”. 7

Though I’ve discussed violence committed by the Eskimos, when it came to relations with the Cree Indians in the Hudson Bay region of Canada, the Eskimos were more often than not the victims. The Crees, though usually at peace among their own people, took out revenge and frustration against non-Cree groups. The Crees believed that every calamity and misfortune experienced by their people was somehow caused by an outside group. Should one of their members suffer from an illness or should they have had a bad hunting season, the Crees avenged their losses by attacking a rival group as they believed they were a sign of misfortune. The Eskimos were their favorite target. Andrew Graham, who lived in the Hudson Bay region from 1749 to 1791 remarked:

There is such enmity between the Indians and Esquimaux, that the former have massacred all of the latter within their power. There is a grand ceremony in which every warrior eats a bit of an Esquimaux, about the size of a nutmeg, and raw. 8

The Iroquois

History books usually depict Indians as gentle people who valued nature and human beings and only became violent upon European contact. However, archaeological records and documentation by European settlers has consistently indicated otherwise. Dean Snow, who authored Iroquois-Huron Warfare in Chacon’s book, makes this point bluntly:

There, as elsewhere in North America, no evidence exists to suggest that American Indians lived in peaceful harmony before European colonization. 9

The Iroquois Indians, who resided in present-day southern Ontario and upstate New York, had a reputation for violence ever since their first encounter with European settlers. In fact “Iroquois” means “killer people” in late 16th century Basque etymology.9 During the 16th century, five Iroquoian tribes, the Mohawks, the Oneidas, the Onondagas, the Cayugas, and the Senecas, consolidated their powers and established a confederacy referred as to the League of the Iroquois. The League went to war with virtually all of their neighbors. They eliminated the Hurons, the Petuns, the Neutrals, and the Eries from the region by the mid-17th century.

Like the Cree people described above, the Iroquois also believed that mishap and misfortune in their lives were somehow caused by a distant enemy group. A family member dying prematurely or even an elderly parent dying of cancer, had to be avenged with death. In the eyes of an Iroquois someone was to be held responsible. This cycle of death and revenge ensured that violence among these groups of people went on in perpetuity. It was said that among the Iroquois, war was the norm and peace the exception. The Iroquois, like many Indian tribes, did incorporate captive enemies into their own society given that they pass a torture test. However, as Keeley indicates below, sometimes captives were never given a second chance:

A few cultures occasionally took men captive only to sacrifice them to their gods or torture them to death later. Among the Iroquoian tribes of the Northeast, captured warriors were often subject to preliminary torture during the return journey of a war party. When the party arrived at the home village, the prisoners were beaten by running the gauntlet into the village. At a council, the warrior prisoners who survived these initial torments were distributed to families who had recently lost men in warfare. After these prisoners were ritually adopted and given the name of the family’s dead member, they were usually tortured to death over several days. The victim was expected to display great fortitude during these torments—taunting his torturers and expressing contempt for their efforts. When the prisoner was dead, some parts of his body were eaten (usually including his heart) by his murderers. 11

Speaking of cannibalism, documentations exists that the Iroquois ate some their enemies. Thomas Abler corresponded a refutation of W. Aren’s The Man-Eating Myth, titled, Iroquois Cannibalism: Fact Not Fiction. His documentations drew upon Dutch, French, and English accounts.

The Jesuits have graphically described the butchering of bodies in preparation for eating. Skinning human remains for “a detestable repast” is noted. Another priest saw two “drunkards” skin a thigh, after which one left the house and “reentered the cabin with the liver in his hand”. 12

Another captive’s account described that, “In the presence of the christian woman, they crushed all his fingers with their teeth; They cut off half of one hand, and they bit off his ears, which they at once swallowed, quite raw”. 13

René de Bréhant de Galinée, a French missionary to the Native Americans in the 17th century reported that his men were: “barbarous enough to wish to see the torture . . . from beginning to end” in a Seneca village. The end involved butchering the captive and feasting on him. “Several presented portions of his flesh to the French, telling them there was no better eating in the world”. 14

These barbaric practices largely disappeared during the 18th century after the Iroquois became Christianized.

The Indigenous People of the Northwest Coast

The indigenous people of the Northwest coast were a group of Indian tribes that stretched from Puget Sound in Washington state, across coastal British Columbia, and to Yakatat Bay, Alaska. The southern part of the region was primarily comprised of sedentary tribes with permanent villages. The Salish tribe represented such people. The northern part of the region were mainly hunter-gatherers and were represented by groups such as the Tlingit and the Haida people. The Northwestern groups practiced human sacrifice, slavery, and revenge killings.

As mainly nomadic people, the northern groups oftentimes raided the more settled groups for resources. Among things raided were food, clothing, women, and slaves. The south, however, with it’s more complex and organized societies were primarily concerned with preserving what they had and built. They were mainly concerned with defense. As you can imagine, conflicts were frequent between the raiding nomadic people and the settled people.

The use of slave labor has always been an important part of indigenous Northwestern life. However, it’s use escalated upon contact with the European settlers after the 1830s. Slaves were traded to the settlers (and to other tribes) in exchange for food, clothing, and firearms. The groups that held the most slaves were considered the most warlike. The northern groups tended to own more slaves than the southern groups. However the Kwakiutl, which was situated between the northern and southern regions owned the highest median number slaves by 1850.11 The settlers took the slaves, not to use as labor, but to prevent the Indians from killing them off.

The Northwest Coast groups believed in a form of spirituality that cherished revenge killing of enemies through warfare. Festivities such as the Winter Ceremonial was an important event for the Kwakiutl people that celebrated the spirit of war and death.

The Winter Ceremonial contained the important Kwakiutl military themes such as killing enemies, destroying property, ritual antagonism between rivals from different secret societies, burning houses, and the taking of trophy heads and scalp’s.

The historical record indicates that predatory raiding circa 1830-50 likely contributed to an elaboration of the Winter Ceremonial characterized by the killing of slaves, aggressive property distribution, and ritual cannibalism, particularly after 1835 when an elite Kwakiutl war party attacked the Heiltsuk (Bella Coola) and acquired the rights to perform the Aamatsa, or cannibal dance. 12

By the 1860s, slave holding and warfare was on a sharp decline as the people became more civilized.

The Winter Ceremonial of 1859-60 may have been the last one to use human sacrifice in the form of trophy heads and slaves. After the mortality wrought by smallpox in 1862, the Winter Ceremonial changed. Sacrificing slaves was replaced with coppers, which were made from the copper sheathing of European ships and first observed in use by the Kwakiutl in 1866. The Winter Ceremonial was the only ritually appropriate occasion to break or destroy a copper, an act that mimicked the destruction of a human body. 13

TheCrow Creek Massacre

The Crow Creek massacre in present day South Dakota took place in the 14th century. At this site, archaeologists have counted nearly 500 remains. The Caddo and the Siouan-speaking people had occupied the site. It was thought that all people at this site were killed during the attack.

There, perhaps at dawn on a winter day in the early AD 1300s, raiders virtually decimated the population of a large fortified village. The mutilated bodies of nearly five hundred villagers were recovered in our excavations, with more bodies known to exist in the makeshift grave and in the site’s burned houses. This truly was a massacre rather than a battle; most villagers appear to have been clubbed to death while fleeing. There is not an embedded arrow point in any of the bodies. Men, women, and children were indiscriminately killed. Their noses, hands, and feet were sometimes cut off, teeth smashed, and heads and limbs cut from the body. The victims, from babies to elders, were universally scalped and mutilated. The scale of the deaths suggests that most of the inhabitants were killed. 14

From the archaeological records, it is postulated that the victimized group were weak and suffered from poor health and diet, perhaps as a result of losing important members of their society to previous conflicts. They were an easy target.

The Achuars

The Achuars were a tribe that resided in the northern Amazon rain-forests of Peru and Ecuador in South America. They were one of the last groups of people on earth unaffected by the outside world. The Achuars were highly territorial and were extremely suspicious of outsiders. In The Society of Nature (1994), French anthropologist, Philippe Descola, devoted an extensive study of the Achuar people and their environment. He disclosed that:

Achuar society lives in a perpetual state of war, and it is no doubt significant that their vocabulary has no term for peace; daily life swings between times of out-and-out warfare and periods of latent hostility. This endemic feuding has important demographic consequences, since something on the order of one out of every two male deaths can be attributed to war, as compared to one in five for women. 15

The arrival of Christian missionaries from America attempted to transform Achuar society. Though missionary activity in the region had been present since the 1940s, it wasn’t until twenty years later that missionaries made real inroads. Though the Achuars have become more accepting of outsiders due to Christianity’s pacifying effects, violent outbreaks between Achuars and outsiders still occur. There have been a number of violent encounters between them and the oil developers since the mid-1960s. The aggressiveness of the Achuars have made it difficult for them to drill on their land.

The Huaoranis

The Huaoranis, also known as the Waorani people, were once regarded as among the most violent people on earth. As Ecuador’s “last savages”, colonization of them has been difficult. The Huaorani tribes still exist today, more or less continuing their traditional ways of life, albeit being reduced in number as their population faces pressure from land developers and big oil. They are a group of hunter-gatherers who have traditionally never relied on agricultural. As highly tribal people, the Huaoranis have a strong in-group, out-group barrier. Life centers around the “longhouse” where up to 25 Huaorani family members live and congregate. Huaoranis believe their ancestors created the earth and all life forms on it.

“Huaorani” literally means ‘true human beings’ as opposed to “cohuori” which refer to all other people. Cohuoris are viewed as half-humans, half-animals that prey upon Huaoranis to suck their blood and eat them. In other words cohuoris are seen as cannibals. Cohuoris can refer to a rival tribe, a raiding army, or colonizing settlers. Huaoranis live in their own little world and always believe themselves to be victims in their struggle with the cohuoris. Huaoranis never see themselves as predators, even when they instigated the conflicts. However, unlike other tribal people, the Huaoranis did not take the victim’s possession after they killed them. They did not scalp their heads or take body parts as trophies. Nor did the Huaoranis take women or children as captives. They did not want any association with the cohuoris or their possessions.

What really separated the Huaoranis from other tribal people was the way they dealt with death. A kin that dies prematurely, whether it be by natural disaster, disease, or through accidents, caused men to experience a state called pï ï or “homicidal furor.” This is a condition of extreme emotion that makes the subject go on uncontrollable killing sprees and avenge against perceived enemies. The Huaoranis viewed premature deaths as an insult. While many heathen groups, such as the Iroquois and Crees, mentioned above, would avenge premature natural deaths by raiding remote tribes, the Huaoranis often targeted their very own people. Not even death at the hands of a cohuori would produce pï ï. In the the eyes of a Huaorani, being killed by a non-Huaorani was little different than being killed by an animal. After all they didn’t distinguish between the two. This type of death was seen as natural, while actual natural deaths, such as caused by disease and natural disasters, were considered unnatural. Laura Rival, an anthropologist who has studied the Huaorani over a multi-year period, discloses in Trekking Through History: The Huaorani of Amazonian Ecuador:

I witnessed men becoming piï on several occasions. Each time, the first manifestation of rage was directed against the man’s young children. His wife or wives and other co-residents had to contain him, stop him from seizing his spears and killing in his own house. Once I heard a man, infuriated by the death of his son who had drowned in the Curaray River, sing: “I want to kill, as a result you die. My becoming angry drives me to want to kill, resulting in your dying.”

After the first fit of rage, men usually channel their piï energy by planning a killing raid. Their rage and determination to kill, which they sustain through chanting, spreads contagiously to other men in the longhouse. They need to remain in a state of rage throughout, from the fashioning and decorating of spears to the finding of and spying on victims. Victims are ambushed and killed when they are most vulnerable or least suspicious. 16

Huaoranis engaged in pï ï took their long spears and thrusted them into their victims abdomen while pushing and pulling through the organs to cause large amount of bleeding. This type of death is normally slow and painful. Though the victim usually dies before help arrives, in some cases they are discovered alive by their relatives. In this case, the loved ones hastily sets up a grave to bury the victim alive, in order to minimize suffering. In addition should the victim have children, they take the youngest child and bury him or her alive with him. This was done to make sure that the victim does not become lonely in his afterlife.

American evangelical missionary activities beginning in the 1950s helped pacify the Huaorani people to some extent. The Christian fundamentalists ardently pushed for monogamy, praying, and sexual modesty, while discouraging feasts and dancing.17 The missionaries faced some difficulty when five of their members were speared to death in January 1956. Not discouraged, the missionaries have kept pushing on. While evangelists believed themselves to be on a moral mission “sent by God” to tame and civilize one of the last “savages” on this planet, anthropologists on the other hand saw their activities as destroying one of the last unique indigenous cultures that remain.

Papua New Guinea

New Guinea man uses enemy skull as pillow in 1962

New Guinea is a large island located in Oceania in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The territory is divided into two – Western New Guinea and Papua New Guinea. New Guinea is host to hundreds of different tribes and languages. One particular area, the eastern highlands region of Papua New Guinea was long known for endemic tribal violence, more so than the western highlands region. The highland Papuans were strongly ethnocentric people. In the eastern highlands, violence was not only directed to other men, but also towards women and children. Headhunting and cannibalism was rife. This practice, however, had largely ceased by the late 20th century. D.K. Feil, in The Evolution of Highland Papua New Guinea Societies, discloses:

The archetypal cases for Lewis Langness (anthropologist who had studied indigenous New Guinean culture extensively) of ‘unrestricted warfare’ are the Gahuku-Gama and Bena Bena of the eastern highlands. For the former, ‘In warfare the aim is the complete destruction of an enemy and his means of livelihood, and each single tribe is opposed to other tribes which are regarded as traditional enemies and consequently as being permanently “at war” with one another’ Similarly in Bena Bena, ‘the stated aims of warfare were the complete and total destruction of the enemy if possible. This included every man, woman and child, whether old, infirm, or pregnant. Although it is true that most raids resulted in only one, or few deaths, cases were known in which entire groups were destroyed’. 18

Lawrence Keeley on Papua Guinea warfare:

When a Mae Enga warrior was seriously wounded by an arrow or a javelin, his adversaries would charge forward to chop him literally to pieces with their axes. 19


The Tupi people were one of Brazil’s largest group of indigenous people. Formerly from the Amazon rain forests, the Tupis occupied nearly the entire length of Brazil’s coast. Brazil’s other major group was the Guarani, who lived inland. The practice of cannibalism had been documented by Portuguese settlers during the 16th century:

According to primary source accounts by primarily European writers, the Tupi were divided into several tribes which would constantly engage in war with each other. In these wars the Tupi would normally try to capture their enemies to later kill them in cannibalistic rituals. The warriors captured from other Tupi tribes were eaten as it was believed by them that this would lead to their strength being absorbed and digested; thus, in fear of absorbing weakness, they chose only to sacrifice warriors perceived to be strong and brave. For the Tupi warriors, even when prisoners, it was a great honor to die valiantly during battle or to display courage during the festivities leading to the sacrifice. The Tupi have also been documented to eat the remains of dead relatives as a form of honoring them. 20

Lawrence Keeley on the treatment of Tupi captives:

(Harsh) treatment was inflicted on captives by various Tupi groups in South America; in some tribes, the tortured prisoner was dispatched by children using arrows or axes, and the boys’ hands were then dipped in the victim’s blood to symbolize their duty to become warriors. 21

The Catholic missionaries during the 16th century worked hard to pacify the Tupis. They banned cannibalism. Many Portuguese men who settled in Tupi territory married Tupi women, since the colonists brought few Portuguese women. The settlers also made extensive use of Tupis as slave labor and many of them died from being overworked. However it was disease from the Europeans that did the most damage as it wiped out nearly the entire Tupi population.

The Maoris of New Zealand

The Maoris were the indigenous people of New Zealand. They arrived from eastern Polynesia during the 14th century. During their time in New Zealand, the Maoris hunted the moa and other indigenous flightless bird to extinction as they exploited the land.22 There were roughly 40 Maori tribes in New Zealand during the late 18th century and their population numbered 100 to 300 hundred thousand. They were the sole people of New Zealand until European contact. Though the individual Maori tribes were similar to each other, they warred very frequently with one another. Like many heathen people, the Maoris’ primarily used violence instead of diplomacy to settle disputes. Their use of violence was mainly driven by revenge, as documented by Andrew Vayda in War in Ecological Perspective:

Maoris were strongly motivated to pursue policies of retaliation rather than non-retaliation. Suffering injuries meant to them a spiritual as well as a physical weakening and, accordingly, required the injured to strive to heal themselves by deeds that would restore their repute, their courage, their feeling of strength and wholeness. This way of thinking about injuries and about the necessity for avenging them is said to have been among the first lessons taught to Maori children. By the time the children were grown, they regarded revenge a vital point of honor and one of the most important duties of man-something to be pursued in spite of danger, difficulty, and every fatigue and privation. The ideas about revenge were what Gregory Bateson would call “hard-programmed”: they were deeply ingrained and were accepted, without critical inspection, as a basis for other ideas and action. 23

A Maori group would revenge not only against other Maori groups that practiced violence against them but even against groups that merely taunted and insulted them. Maoris also expressed hatred against their foes by eating them. A New Zealand missionary once heard a Maori warrior taunt the preserved head of a slain enemy:

You wanted to run away, did you? but my meri [war club] overtook you: and after you were cooked, you made food for my mouth. And where is your father? he is cooked:—and where is your brother? he is eaten:— and where is your wife? there she sits, a wife for me:—and where are your children? there they are, with loads on their backs, carrying food, as my slaves. 24

Samuel Marsden, a leading missionary member in New Zealand, during the early 19th century, echoes a similar situation:

“If any chief falls into the hands of a tribe which he has oppressed and injured by the chance of war, they are sure to roast and eat him; and after devouring his flesh, they will preserve his bones in the family as a memento of his fate, and convert them into fish-hooks, whistles, and ornaments. The custom of eating their enemies is universal. The origin of it is now too remote to be traced. The natives generally speak of it with horror and disgust, yet they expect that this will be their own fate in the end, as it has been with their forefathers and friends. I represented to them how much their national character suffered in the opinion of all civilised nations from this horrid custom. Many regretted that it should be the practice of their country, and said that when they knew better they would leave it off. If the head of a tribe is killed and eaten, the survivors consider it the greatest disgrace that can befal them; and in their turn they seize the first opportunity to retaliate.” 25

In 1642, Abel Tasman, a strongly suspected Jew, who worked for the Dutch East India Company, was the first European to set foot on New Zealand. However, European settlers (known as Pakehas) didn’t start settling in number until the latter half of the 18th century. The introduction of firearms into Maori culture completely changed the way Maori conflicts were conducted. The settlers courted Nga Puhi’s (a Maori tribe) leader, Hongi Hika, as he was eager to do favors for them in exchange for muskets. Hongi worked with the Pakehas and helped missionaries establish a foothold, even though he himself never converted to Christianity. Hongi was brought to England and then to Australia to learn Western customs. Back home he helped protect settlers and missionaries from Maori violence. Hongi worked with the missionaries in developing a written language for the Maoris, which would help spread Christianity by making them literate in the bible. He donated thousands of acres of land to churches. Despite the services he provided, Hongi admitted that Christianity was a “religion fit for slaves.”

With the newly acquired muskets from the settlers, the first thing on Hongi’s mind was avenging against his enemies. What appeared to be a pleasing and mild mannered man when visiting England, became a vengeful monster upon his return home. He and his 2000 men with 1000 muskets planned on a murder spree across the entire island. He avenged for the death of his father and sister. Hongi and his men avenged for previous humiliating defeats against the Ngati Paoa, Ngati Maru, and Waikato by killing thousands of men, women, and children. The heads of the killed chiefs were hung on poles while some of their victims were eaten. The clubs and spears of the rivals were no match for Hongi’s firearms. Just their racket was enough to scare them into submission. But in time, his enemies too acquired them. And soon just about every Maori tribe were equipped with muskets. Firearms however were like alcohol and cigarettes. They were addictive and had a costly toll on the people at the end. Not just in terms of lives lost but on the resources that had to be given up for them. They reduced the people to servitude26 as the Maoris traded away their goods to the settlers for arms. The Maoris sacrificed enormously to acquire just a single weapon as Pakeha, F.E. Maning, who lived with the Maoris, put it: that for one or two muskets the people had to give a ton of flax, “scraped by hand with a shell, bit by bit, morsel by morsel, half-quarter of an ounce at a time.” Maning continues:

Now as the natives, when undisturbed and labouring regularly at their cultivations, were never far removed from necessity or scarcity of food, we may easily imagine the distress and hardship caused by this enormous imposition of extra labour. They were obliged to neglect their crops in a very serious degree, and for many months in the year were in a half-starving condition, working hard all the time in the flax swamps. 27

Missionaries were stunned by the Maori violence. However it was not just violence but disease, brought by the Europeans, that killed Maoris. It was estimated that between one-quarter and one-half of the Maori population was lost during the early 19th century. Up to that time, missionary activities had been largely unsuccessful in converting the stubborn Maoris. The Annual Report of the Wesleyan-Methodist Missionary Society stated that in 1830, seven years after their mission began, ‘the perverse levity and awful depravity of these savages appear to be unequalled in the history of man’.28 But by the 1830s, the Maoris started to question whether fighting for revenge was really worth the sacrifice of lives. When the missionaries started to learn and speak Te Reo, the Maori language, conversion came much easier. By the 1840s the Maoris started converting to Christianity in numbers and became more civilized. However, by the 1860s, a different type of conflict developed. Instead of Maori against Maori, it was Maori against settlers. They had started to pour in large numbers and the Maoris found their territories shrinking. The settlers had won out at the end. Looking back at history, there are some that applaud the missionaries for civilizing the once barbarian people, but there are others that criticize them for destroying ancient indigenous cultures.

Ironically, some Maoris started to take the religious teachings that was intended to pacify them, spin them around, and use it as a weapon against the Pakehas. Several Maori fringe movements, based on the bible, sprung out in response to what they saw as hostile Pakeha takeover. The most well known was the Pai Mārire movement, led by the prophet Te Ua Haumēne. The movement started to flourish on the North Island from 1863 to 1874.29 Pai Mārire took themes from the bible and incorporated Maori elements in it. The Maoris saw themselves as the “second chosen people” and believed that Jehovah would fight for the Maoris and drive the Pakehas to the sea. The settlers saw Pai Mārire as an extremist movement and worked hard to suppress the religion and persecute the followers.

The Naga People of Northeast India

The Nagas were a group of oriental tribes that originated in the hills of the northeastern section of India near the Nepal border. In this section of India was the Assam, Manipur, and Arunachal Pradesh regions. It was said that before Western contact, the Naga people of Assam, “have as many wars as there are hairs on a Naga’s head.”30 Perhaps an exaggeration but it nonetheless illustrates the high amount of feuding the tribes had against one another.

William Smith in, The Ao Naga Tribe of Assam, explains that the most serious Naga casualties were not the result of actual battles, but from the surprise attack and ambushes that caught the victims off guard: The worst feature of this warfare was that helpless women and children were slain without any compunction; and the man who slew a child was held in the same esteem as one who had smitten his Goliath of Gath. 31

Headhunting was a widespread practice among many Naga groups. Collecting the heads of enemies, especially of chiefs, and displaying them demonstrated honor and bravery. A man who was ready to marry must bring home heads to earn respect from women. Headhunting was also seen as a spiritual undertaking and pleasing to their god, Lizaba. Headhunting raids were not limited to attacks on men. Smith quoting Sir J. Johnstone:

“To kill a baby in arms, or a woman, was accounted a greater feat than killing a man, as it implied having penetrated to the innermost recesses of an enemy’s country, whereas a man might be killed anywhere by a successful ambush.” 32 33

The Ao Nagas worshiped many gods but it was thought that there were no images of them. Like many heathens, they were intensely superstitious. Nago life changed literally overnight when missionaries arrived from Britain and the United States during the late 19th century. When the first missionary, Mr. Clark, introduced firearms to the Nagas by felling an elephant with one shot, they were awestruck. The Nagas valued the gun more than anything else that the colonizers brought and like the Maoris mentioned above, would trade anything to get them. Under Christian colonization, both headhunting and slavery stopped. Farmers no longer had to go out in the field armed while worrying that their wives and children could be massacred at any moment. Promiscuity and vulgar conversations among the Nagas started becoming taboo while prayer and abstinence became more of the norm. At the big annual sacrifices, cattle were customarily killed in a cruel manner of being hacked to pieces while it bled to death. This was gradually phased out. Though the Nagas became more civilized, their old traditions and culture largely disappeared. 34

The Formosan People of Taiwan

The Formosan people are Taiwan’s indigenous people. Research suggests that they have been in Taiwan for approximately 6500 years. Formosans number approximately 800,000 or 3 percent of the country’s population. There are 26 recognized languages of the Formosans. They are considered Autronesian people and are related to the Polynesians.

The Formosans were made up of many different groups and within each groups were several subgroups. Formosan groups and subgroups would frequently conflict with one another. They practiced headhunting extensively. When young boys reached the age of maturity, he was to celebrate this by going on his first headhunting journey.34 The young warrior was usually accompanied by several boys who were around his age and were also going on their first expeditions. This group was led by experienced male headhunters. Securing the head of an enemy was seen as appeasing the gods and cultivating the soul. A great feast was prepared when a warrior returned with one or more heads.

At the time of feasting and dancing in celebration of a victory, head of the victim is placed on “the skull-shelf ” of the village — being often the last addition to a pile of others — and food and millet-wine are placed in front of it, food being sometimes inserted into its mouth. The chief (often a woman), or high-priestess, of the village offers to the last-decapitated head an invitation to the following effect warrior, you are welcome to our village and to our feast! Eat and drink, and ask your brothers to come and join you, and to eat and drink with us also.” This invocation is supposed to have a magical effect in bringing about other victories, and thus adding more heads to the skull-shelf. 35

This practice went into decline when Taiwan was being colonized by a host of foreigners. From the 17th to the 20th centuries, the Formosans were under the influence of the Dutch, the Spaniards, the Chinese, and the Japanese. During the 17th century, Christian missionaries, under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company, arrived in Taiwan. They worked hard in civilizing the Formosans in attempt to end their barbaric practices of headhunting and enemy raids. The priests intermarried with the locals, which irritated the Formosans. This civilizing process made it much easier to extract resources from the Formosans and make them players in global trade. The Dutch were particularly attracted to the prospects of finding gold.

One of the controversial things the missionaries had done to the Siyayans (a Formosan tribe) was persecuting their Inibs. Inibs were women that communicated with the divine world through ceremonies and shamanistic rituals. They were highly respected in their communities. Women in Formosan society in general were held with high esteem.36 However in the missionaries’ eyes, the Inibs were the most prominent symbol of paganism in Siyayan society and were a great obstacle in conversion of the masses. Because of this, the missionaries excommunicated the Inibs by banishing them from their communities and forcing them to live in isolation.

Mass conversion of the Sirayan took place between 1636 to 1639 among villagers in the south-western plains under Dutch compulsion. It was reported that the inhabitants of the Tavocan village burned their idols under the presence of minister Robertus Janius. The same thing happened in Soulang and Mattauw under Governor Johan Van der Burch and a pair of ministers. So impressed by the success of the conversions, Van der Burch written,

“It is impossible for me to refrain from praising the docility and tractability of these folk; they are so easily governed.” 37

The Dutch were not the only foreigners pushing their religion on the Formosans. During the Zheng and Qing eras, oppressive Hans brought Taoism and Buddhism in. But despite the work of missionaries, some Formosan groups held stubbornly to their ancestral beliefs. Headhunting was still being practiced by the Taiyal, the Paiwan, and the Bunan tribes at the turn of the 20th century. By 1930, this practice disappeared altogether under Japanese occupation.

The Spartans

Sparta was an ancient city-state in Greece that were at their height in power between the 6th and 4th centuries BC. Though a small group, they were among the most fearsome fighters on earth. In the Greco-Persian Wars, Sparta was the leading force in the consolidated Greek military. The Spartans defeated Athens in the Battle of Aegospotami during the Peloponnesian War in 405 BC.

The Spartans regarded fleeing the battlefield and letting their fellow comrades down as the ultimate disgrace. Famous Spartan poet, Tyrtaeos (7th century BC), invoked them to action by these words:

“…of high regard in time of war
[who] can endure the sight of blood and death,
and stand close to the enemy, and fight.
This is the highest worth (arête), the finest human prize (ariston)
And fairest (kalon) for a bold young man to win.” 38

And those who die in battle will be glorified:

Neither does his noble fame [kleos] or his name ever perish, but even though he is beneath the earth he becomes immortal [athanatos]— whoever distinguishes himself in bravery by standing stead-fast and fighting for the sake of his land and children, and is destroyed by furious Ares. 39

A fable by Plutarch, a Greek philosopher and historian, describes the toughness of the Spartan people. Spartan warriors trained for battle from an early age. At infancy, males who were deformed or deemed weak were left to die at Mount Taygetus. Spartan warriors were referred to as Spartiates and they were considered the most respected men and of the highest caste in Spartan society. The training of Spartiates was so brutal that public flogging of young trainees to install discipline was used to ingrain toughness in the warriors. Some died as a result. Young trainees were provided with scant food and clothing, which forced them to kill animals or steal food to survive.

Throughout their adult lives, the Spartiates continued to be subject to a training regime so strict that, as Plutarch says, “… they were the only men in the world with whom war brought a respite in the training for war.” Bravery was the ultimate virtue for the Spartans: Spartan mothers would give their sons the shield with the words “[Return] With it or [carried] on it!” 40

This fable below describes a youngster of seven years, the age that military training begun, that chose to die in agonizing pain than to be disgraced and dishonored for failing to live up to his duty as a warrior. This young trainee stole a fox for food, as was customary for warriors to do to survive, and rather than being caught stealing, which would have been a disgrace, chose to suffer and die instead:

When the owners of the fox came looking for it, the boys coerced one of their group to hide the fox under his tunic. But trapped inside his cloak, the panicked fox quickly turned savage, and began digging away at the boy’s flesh in a desperate attempt to free itself. The boy, however, didn’t flinch.

Not wanting to give the game away when he was challenged by his commanding officer and the fox’s owners over the animal’s disappearance, the boy remained silent and steadfast, until the entire affair had calmed down and the fox’s owners departed to continue their search. Only then did he finally drop to the ground, the bloodied fox falling from his tunic and escaping into the undergrowth.

Realizing that their fellow recruit was now dying, the boys asked him—why not just tell the truth? Surely it would have been better to let the fox go and face the punishment, rather than let it maul him to death?

“Not so,” replied the boy, according to Plutarch’s account. “Because it is better to die without yielding to the pain, rather than through being detected because of weakness of spirit and gain a life to be lived in disgrace.” 41

The Celts

When many think of the Celtic people, the Irish are the first people that come to mind. Some also may have in mind the Welsh and the Scots. However the original Celts occupied a large portion of continental Europe, stretching from France to the Balkans, the Iberian peninsula, and Anatolia. There were hundreds of different Celtic tribes during ancient times.

Many people picture the Celts as gentle and free-spirited people. However that was not so in ancient times. Though endemic warfare occurred regularly in many ancient societies, the Celts were particularly barbaric. Among the most controversial features, were their practices of human-sacrifice and headhunting.

Ancient Romans and Greeks recorded the Celts’ habits of embalming in cedar oil the heads of the most distinguished enemies, allies and relatives; and the mounting of the heads on walls for decoration and in porticos or pillars in their entry for display. The Greco-Roman writers also describe the Celts hanging severed heads from the necks of their horses while riding in order to intimidate onlookers and enemies alike. 42

Hanging, impaling, dismembering, drowning, slaughtering by sword or spear, and burning (holocaust) were the most common methods of sacrifice. It was said that the Celts were the worst offenders of human sacrifice, next to the Semites. The Romans, who fought against the Celts, considered them as the most barbaric people they have ever encountered. They described them as having a “cult of the severed head.”

The Celts sacrificed humans (and animals) to appease the gods or to reverse misfortune among their people. Often times during war, when facing defeat, their own weak and feeble warriors were sacrificed. Sometimes men in combat would commit suicide in hopes of bringing victory to the survivors. Children were at times sacrificed and buried in crop fields to bring in a good harvest. Sacrificed humans were even buried underneath the foundation of a new building as it was being built.

Celts were known to eat their enemies. Historian J.A. MacCulloch on Celtic cannibalism:

(Ancient Greek historian) Diodorus says the Irish ate their enemies, and Pausanias describes the eating the flesh and drinking the blood of children among the Galatian Celts. Drinking out of a skull the blood of slain (sacrificial) enemies is mentioned by Ammianus and Livy, and Solinus describes the Irish custom of bathing the face in the blood of the slain and drinking it. In some of these cases the intention may simply have been to obtain the dead enemy’s strength, but where a sacrificial victim was concerned, the intention probably went further than this. 43

Head-hunting were described in classical writings as having sacrificial purposes:

The heads of enemies were hung at the saddle-bow or fixed on spears, as the conquerors returned home with songs of victory. This gruesome picture often recurs in the texts. Thus, after the death of Cúchulainn, Conall Cernach returned to Emer with the heads of his slayers strung on a withy. He placed each on a stake and told Emer the name of the owner. A Celtic oppidum or a king’s palace must have been as gruesome as a Dayak or Solomon Island village. Everywhere were stakes crowned with heads, and the walls of houses were adorned with them. 44

The Greek writer, Strabo, described that some of the Irish even ate their parents. This was an example of what was considered “honorific cannibalism.” Keep in mind that accounts written by the Greeks and Romans may have been exaggerated, considering that they were enemies to the Celts. The Greeks and Romans themselves practiced grotesque brutality. Nevertheless, accounts by Irish writers confirm that human sacrifice did exist among the Celts in ancient times. For instance, Dindsenchas, an Irish text, describes these Celtic barbaric practices:

“the firstlings of every issue and the chief scions of every clan” were offered to Cromm Cruaich—a sacrifice of the first-born,—and that at one festival the prostrations of the worshippers were so violent that three-fourths of them perished. 45

Apparently the Romans ended those practices in Gaul by the 1st century AD.

The Romans

Arguably, the Romans (along with the Greeks), were the most sophisticated and civilized among the heathens. However, their methods of punishment against criminality were quite barbaric. The execution of criminals and subversives was a public spectacle in ancient Rome. There was no better example of this than at the Colosseum. At the time it was known as the Flavian Amphitheater. For many centuries the Colosseum hosted events which featured gruesome executions of criminals and misfits in front of the public. These events were used as a public deterrent against crimes. Roman citizens who committed criminal acts were normally spared the most gruesome deaths and were usually decapitated, unless they committed serious crimes. However non-citizens and slaves were open to any number of cruel methods of execution. Some were tied naked to a pole while being eaten alive by wild animals or were forced to run around the arena being chased by a wild animal such as a tiger or a lion. Others were burned alive. In some cases the subject was to put on a decorative outfit soaked in flammable liquid. The ignition of the clothes were then ignited which made the subject dance until he died. But probably the most inhumane death was the crucifixion. Here the subject died though suffocation. This slow death lasted hours.

The most well known execution events were the gladiatorial fights. The first gladiator events were held in the 3rd century BC. Contrary to popular belief, gladiators were not sporting heroes but prisoners and criminals. These two fighters would duke it out in trying to kill one another. The winner would then face another gladiator to combat with. This cycle would continue until the last combatant. These gruesome games came under pressure from the new Christian religion beginning in the 4th century.

The Vikings

The Vikings (8th to late 11th century) were a group of people that originated from Scandinavia. They were seafarers that had a profound influence over much of northern Europe and covered a wide geographical area. They had settlements that stretched from western Russia to Newfoundland, Canada. The Vikings had a reputation as fearsome warriors. Death in battle was preferable to dying of illness and old age.

In the book Heimskringla, History of the Kings of Norway, Egil Ullserk, a warrior under King Harald of Denmark and Norway during the 10th century, wrote on the Vikings on the eve of a great battle:

“That have I feared for some time, whilst we had this long peace, that I might die of old age on the straw inside my house; but I would rather die in battle, following my chieftain. Maybe that this will now be the case.” 46

The Jomsvikings

The Jomsvikings were a legendary subgroup of the Vikings that may have resided in the northwestern part of present-day Poland in a village known as Jomsburg during the 10th and 11th centuries. The saga of the Jomsvikings was written during the early 13th century in Iceland. The Jomsvikings were dedicated to the worship of the Old Norse gods. They were an extremely tough group of fighting men who saw it as an act of cowardice to flee or surrender in battle. Jomsvikings did not go down easily in defeat. Only against vastly superior adversaries, did they walk away and only in orderly retreat. The Saga of the Jomsvikings illustrates this toughness. A group of Jomsvikings faced defeat against a rivalry led by Porkell Leira. Just before being executed, Porkell asked a Jomsviking, “How do you feel about dying?”

He answers: “I would be forgetting the laws of the Jómsvikings if I thought ill of it or complained about death or spoke words of fear. Everyone has to die once.” 47

Another Jomsviking’s response before being executed,

“I think it good to die,” says he, “with a good reputation; but yours is a life of shame, for you will live with shame and disgrace for the rest of your life.” 48

And another,

“Tell the truth, fellow,” says Porkell; “how good do you think it to die?”

“I think it good to die, like all our fellows who are losing their lives here. But I would like you to do me the favor that I should not be led to the blow like a beast, rather I wish to face it, and I want you to walk towards me from in front and strike into my face, and watch carefully to see whether I flinch at all, for we Jómsvikings have often discussed whether a man will react at all if a blow strikes him in the face.” 49

It was said that the man did not flinch at all when being hacked, except when death came upon him.


Societies before organized religion were tough and fierce. People back then were not “turning the other cheek” nor practicing Ahimsa. Neither were they retreating a foot when the enemy advanced an inch (as in Taoism). Under paganism, the gods strengthened their people, not weakened them. The pagan gods symbolized power, bravery, courage, and honor. Not humbleness, turning the other cheek, or being a lowly pacifist. Heathens preferred to fight to their deaths instead of surrendering to their enemies and risk dishonor and humiliation. This was an incredible contrast to the teachings of Christianity, Buddhism, and other organized religions. Prayers among the heathens prior to war were summoned to bring victory and to destroy foes. Ferdinand Barmadu in, Why Europeans Must Reject Christianity, explains that mercy was regarded as a sign of weakness in pagan societies:

Pity was condemned as a vice; mercy was despised as a character flaw. Mercy was viewed as the antithesis of justice because no one deserved help that had not been earned. The rational man was typically expected to be callous towards the sufferings of the less fortunate. His philosophical training in the academies had shown him that mercy was an irrational and impulsive behavior whose proper antidote was self-restraint and stoic calm in the face of adversity. In the Roman world, clementia was reserved exclusively for the vanquished in battle or the guilty defendant at trial. Weaklings and the economically disadvantaged were beneath contempt. 50

Mainstream “research” has promoted the view that primitive people before organized religion and Western civilization were peaceful until contact. However real archaeological and anthropological research has shown that to be false.

Few heathen societies were what we consider pacifist.

In one sample of fifty societies, only five were found to have engaged “infrequently or never” in any type of offensive or defensive warfare (Otterbein, K. 1989: The Evolution of War: A Cross-Cultural Study).

In another larger cross-cultural study of politics and conflict, twelve of a sample of ninety societies (13 percent) were found to engage in warfare “rarely or never” (Ross, M. 1983. Political Decision Making and Conflict: Additional Cross-Cultural Codes and Scales.” Ethnology 22)

In a study of western North American Indian tribes and bands, only 13 percent of the 157 groups surveyed were recorded as “never or rarely” raiding or having been raided (Jorgensen, J. 1980: Western Indians). 51

According to Lawrence Keeley, the few societies that seldom engaged in warfare was not because of compassionate or “moral” reasons. It was almost always due to a) being located in remote and isolated parts of the world, often the consequence of being driven out by more powerful tribes, b) being under the vassal of a centralized state, or c) simply fleeing in battles. The ones that fled battles were more likely to be nomadic and had little to lose in terms of possessions. That was unlike the settled societies which had far more to lose in terms of land and possessions and were more likely to fight head on. “Pacifist” societies were nearly always defeated tribes that couldn’t fight back or where fighting back wasn’t feasible. Even within the “pacifist societies”, homicide was common. Keeley notes groups such as the Eskimos and the Yaghan of Tierra del Fuego engaged in a high amount of inter-tribal violence.

This writeup was not to absolve modern nation-states. No doubt that modern states have committed acts of atrocities and themselves practiced brutality from time to time. We have seen that with the War on Terror, WWII, and many other wars. However, societies before organized religion almost always practiced brutality. Keeley discloses:

One author (Rhodes) has very liberally estimated that more than 100 million people have died from all war-related causes (including famine and disease) on our planet during this (20th) century. These deaths could be regarded as the price modern humanity has paid for being divided into nation-states. Yet this appalling figure is twenty times smaller than the losses that might have resulted if the world’s population were still organized into bands, tribes, and chiefdoms. A typical tribal society lost about about .5 percent of its population in combat each year (Figure 6.1 below). Applying this casualty rate to the earth’s twentieth-century populations predicts more than 2 billion war deaths since 1900.52

Figure 6.1 53

Figure 6.2 54

Though Western Europe has been Christianized since before the 1300s, they still hung on to their pagan ways for a while. This behavior has largely died out over time.

My writeup may have given the impression that my focus was on the barbarism and savagery among the heathens. However, my intention was to illustrate how much things have changed since those times. The heathens did have a deep sense of spiritually that bound their people together. They had a powerful connection with nature and was dependent on it for their survival. Though heathens had to constantly worry about the next conflict, they did not have to deal with today’s issues of pollution, environmental degradation, paying bills and making ends meet, finding employment, funding retirement, paying soaring healthcare costs, dealing with out of control teens, putting up with crooked politicians, etc. Most heathens were fiercely independent and provided everything they needed. There was no dependence on government and the corporations for their necessities. Many tribes were also highly egalitarian and wealth disparity did not exist. Every member made sure every member was looked over and cared for. They had a deeply ingrained sense of honesty and authenticity that has for the most part been lost.

People’s attitude towards violence back then differed little from the attitudes of people today. Heathens generally regarded war as repulsive and shameful. In just about every society in the world warriors were regarded as polluted if they had killed someone, even if it was justified. They would have to undergo spiritual cleansing to remove this contamination. In the Mae Enga society of New Guinea, the most effective warriors were those at the bottom end of society, the poor and those with nothing to lose. Women especially detested war. War meant a possible loss of spouse, loss of property, and rape by the victors. Even if victorious, war still entailed a large loss of life and property. In the words of one Kapauku Papuan man:

War is bad and nobody likes it. Sweet potatoes disappear, pigs disappear, fields deteriorate, and many relatives and friends get killed. But one cannot help it.55

Lawrence Keeley:

Even the fierce head-hunting Jivaro of South America regarded their incessant warfare as a curse. Additional evidence of the universal preference for peace is the ease and even gratitude with which some of the most warlike of tribal peoples accepted colonial pacification or, in The new conditions wrought by European contact, pacified themselves. For example, Auyana men in New Guinea declared that life was much better after pacification because now one could go out to urinate in the morning without fear of ambush and one could eat a meal without anxiety about raids. Whether one takes any of these protestations at face value or cynically, they are remarkably like the attitudes and platitudes expressed by civilized people, both military and civilian.56

D.K. Feil:

Robbins (1982), writing of the Auyana, neighbours of the Tai­rora, also stresses the persistent threat of annihilation. He relates the elaborate precautions Auyana took to avoid death and ensure pro­tection, and how many Auyana favoured the Australian adminis­tration ban on warfare because a man ‘could now eat without looking over his shoulder and could leave his house in the morning to urinate without fear of being shot’. 57

My final word is that society is much more civil and pacifist today due in large part to organized religion. It is not the only factor but it is a very important one indeed. The next chapter will take a closer look at the doctrines of Christianity and how it relates to this world order.

Jesus Was a Communist

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent frustrate.” Isaiah 29:14

Jesus was a communist. Christianity is not the least bit conservative as many believe but is highly left-wing and harmful to the human race. This religion has all the characteristics of liberalism that you can think of. There has been no event(s) in history that has been as destructive as the spread of Christianity since it’s early days as a cult sect in Mediterranean Europe. This dispersion throughout Europe and beyond was the Christian Revolution and it had profoundly changed civilization like never before.

Christianity was a wildly Utopian belief system, spread by Jews, that promised the moon with minimum effort. It found it’s most widespread appeal towards the lowest end of society and required the subjects to remain dumb and ignorant. It celebrated being weak. It discouraged the use of logic and questioning. Christianity destroyed man’s link to their past. It destroyed man’s identity and their place in history. This religion destroyed the vibrant Roman Empire and ushered humanity in a coma that lasted more than a thousand years, otherwise known as the Dark Ages.

The fact that Christianity is a universal religion, not unlike Islam and Buddhism, is itself fraud. Universal religions do not protect their adherents from outside harm but allows them to be easily exploited by others. Universal religions can be infiltrated with ease because anyone can become a Christian, including adversaries, by merely claiming to be one. In Christianity there is absolutely no concept of class or race whatsoever. Everybody is considered equal under Christ. The only class that exists in Christianity are those who believe (in Christ) and those who do not.

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Galatians 3:26-29

Many well-known figures since the beginnings of Christianity have made similar statements. Martin Luther King, a Civil Rights activist and a communist, made the famous “I Had A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963. The last lines of that speech:

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, Black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: Free at last. Free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last.


Though Christianity throughout it’s history has been destructive, no revolution in history has caused as much destruction of human knowledge, culture, and history than the initial spread of Christianity within the Roman Empire during the 4th and 5th centuries.

Only after the destruction of Jerusalem (in 70 AD) by the Romans did the new creed come into prominence. Then a patriotic Jew named Paul or Saul conceived the idea of humbling the Roman power by destroying the morale of its soldiery with the doctrines of love and non-resistance preached by the little sect of Jewish Christians. He became the Apostle to the Gentiles, he who hitherto had been one of the most active persecutors of the band. And so well did Paul do his work that within four centuries the great empire which had subjugated Palestine along with half of the world, was a heap of ruins. And the law which went forth from Zion became the official religion of Rome.

– Marcus Eli Ravage, Century Magazine, 1928

When Theodosius declared Nicene Christianity the official state religion in 380, Europe started their long road towards stagnation and ruin. Christianity brought an end to classical antiquity and ushered in the Dark Ages, where Europe languished for nearly 1000 years. Entire libraries that housed irreplaceable collections of literature, mythologies, arts, sciences, engineering, and philosophy were wiped out forever. These were works created by the pagans. Italian Renaissance scholar Pietro Bembo believed that less than one percent of all Greek literature survived the Christian onslaught. Intellectuals were tortured and killed en mass. During the Dark Ages, the Church punished anyone who challenged the doctrines of Christianity with torture and death. Scientific and technological knowledge declined. The practice of medicine virtually disappeared overnight, being replaced with belief and prayer in curing the sick. Stupidity and ignorance triumphed over reason and knowledge during the Christian-led Dark Ages. Ferdinand Barmadu on Why Europeans Must Reject Christianity:

The widespread Christian vandalism of late antiquity was the largest campaign in world history to destroy an entire civilization’s artistic and architectural heritage. This campaign to erase the great monuments of antiquity from memory was significantly more destructive than the barbarian invasions of the 5th century. The Christians of the late empire were the ISIS or the Taliban of their day, although this may be an understatement as Christians were many times more destructive. Without this added ingredient of ritualized violence, Christianity would never have become the dominant religion of the ancient world . . .

Careful examination of the historical record reveals that the Christian church bears sole responsibility for the destruction and suppression of over 99% of Greek and Latin literature. Christianity’s eradication of the accumulated wisdom of the ages is one of the greatest crimes ever committed against the West. No act of censorship has been more destructive in world history than the one carried out by this institution. Without the life-giving knowledge of the ancient world, maintaining an advanced pre-industrial civilization became virtually impossible. Christian censorship and suppression of secular knowledge is the main reason behind Europe’s descent into the Dark Ages after the collapse of imperial rule in the West.

The following passage in 1 Corinthians, which is a New Testament verse, took a verse out of Isaiah in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). The bible’s author, who as you should know are Jewish, did not miss a beat in eagerly doing this.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”[Isaiah 29:14]

Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

1 Corinthians 1:18-20

If you were presented the above verse, without knowing where it came from, you would think it was written by Lenin, Trotsky, or Mao Zedong.

Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”

2 Corinthians 8:13

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

Matthew 19:29-30

Many more passages that describe communism in the New Testament can be seen here.

Destruction of the old order

The attitude of Jews towards their non-Jewish counterparts can be observed in the biblical scriptures. Jews have always seen man (Gentiles), as bad and evil and in need of reform. Their idea of reform has been to destroy the cultures, the traditions, and the gods of the Gentiles. These passages below are from both the Hebrew bible (OT) and the Goyim bible (NT).

These are the decrees and laws you must be careful to follow in the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you to possess—as long as you live in the land. Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains, on the hills and under every spreading tree, where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods. Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places.

Deuteronomy 12:1

“As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man (Jesus) will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Matthew 13:40-43

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death (i.e. hell).”

Revelations 21:8

The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (#14) repeats the same message:

When we come into our kingdom it will be undesirable for us that there should exist any other religion than ours of the One God with whom our destiny is bound up by our position as the Chosen People and through whom our same destiny is united with the destinies of the world. We must therefore sweep away all other forms of belief.

Both Judaism and Christianity are in agreement that the gods of the Gentiles need to be completely eradicated. The gods of the Gentiles connected them to their past. It defined their identity and character. Once the gods of the Gentiles were wiped out, they could be more easily controlled by their adversaries.


Jews have always seen themselves as saviors to lead mankind out of their “errors” and into some sort of utopia. A utopia where no longer do class and race exist and where people from every walk of life are holding hands with one another. Jews have spent the last 2000 or more years taming the barbarism and tribalism of the Gentiles, while themselves maintaining their own.

Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore.”

Isaiah 2:4

Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: “God will be King over all the world ― on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One”

Zechariah 14:9

“ ‘I have made you (Jews) a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ” [from Isaiah 49:6] He (God) will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Revelations 21:-5

Appealing to the lowest common denominator

Christianity is a simplistic child-like belief system that appeals to the masses and relies on the ignorance of it’s adherents. It discourages questioning and real debate. It discourages the use of logic and reason. Christianity has one simple message that is all you simply need to do is believe and you will be rewarded with eternal heaven. There is no work that is required. You only need faith.

Pew research poll released in 2010 shows that 41 percent of Americans believed that Jesus Christ was returning by 2050. Results vary by geography, with people in the South the most likely to believe in the Second Coming of Christ and those in the Northeast the least likely. Results become more stark when education levels are taken into account. Sixty percent of those who had a high school diploma or less believed that Jesus was returning by 2050 versus just 20 percent of college graduates. The Christian Revolution wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the mass participation of the hoards of lowly, downtrodden plebeians with nothing to lose. Same with the Communist Revolution. In fact no revolution is possible without this element in society.

Scholars have long noted the great appeal Christianity has always had for the lowest dregs of humanity. Few intellectuals were ever attracted to the religion; those who converted became anti-intellectual extremists who turned their back on Western culture and civilization. The 2nd-century Latin theologian Tertullian, one of the most bigoted Christian anti-intellectuals to have ever lived, famously asked: “What indeed has Athens got to do with Jerusalem? What concord is there between the Academy and the Church?… We want no curious disputation after possessing Christ Jesus, no inquisition after enjoying the gospel! With our faith, we desire no further belief.” Contemporary pagan philosophers frequently observed that the earliest converts were drawn from the ranks of stupid, ignorant people. Celsus, an early pagan critic of the new religion, wrote that it was Christian policy to turn away the wise and the educated; only boys, fools and slaves were considered as potential converts.

Ferdinand Barmadu

The New Testament is replete with admiration for the poor, the lowly, and the unsuccessful:

And he (Jesus) said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:3-4

We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored! To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.

1 Corinthians 4:10-13

He (priests) is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.

Hebrews 5:2

A Jewish Conspiracy

The fact that communism is a Jewish creation is not a surprise to many. The author of the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, was a Jew. The early Soviet leaders, Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, were both Jews. Of the 545 members the first Bolshevik administration in 1919, 447 of them were Jews.

You know who else was a Jew? Jesus Christ. Jesus was not only a Jew but was also a Rabbi, the King of the Jews, and the son of the Jewish god, Yahweh. Supposedly Jesus is Yahweh himself as it says many times in the Gospel of John, though no logical explanation exists as to how it is possible that he is both God and the son of God at the same time. Whether the historical Jesus even existed is not of debate here. The point is that the character Jesus, was a Jewish invention. The Christian scriptures (i.e. the New Testament) was written by Jews. Paul the Apostle (Saul of Tarsus) alone is credited for 13 of the 27 of the books of the NT. Paul was a Pharisee, which was a radically fundamentalist Jewish sect. He was said to have a large hook-nose as well. The authorship of the rest of the NT has been subject to debate, but it can be reasonably inferred that they were Jews.

The Twelve Disciples to Jesus Christ:

1. Simon (Peter) – Jewish fisherman

2. Andrew – Jew and brother of Simon

3. James – Son of Zebedee. According to Wikipedia, Zebedee is probably a transliteration of the Hebrew name Zəḇaḏyâ according to Spiros Zodhiates (The Complete Wordstudy Dictionary), or the truncated version Zabdî (זַבְדִּי), says BDB Theological Dictionary, and so means “Yahweh (or the Lord) has bestowed.”

4. John – brother of James and was the disciple that Jesus loved

5. Philip – ?

6. Bartholomew (Nathaniel) – was considered a true Israelite by Jesus

7. Thomas – Was an international merchant who traveled the Silk Road. Thomas was said to have preached the Gospel along the Malabar coast of India in the company of the Jewish merchant Abbanes/Habban. Thomas’ Hebrew name: תוֹמא הקדוש or תוֹמָא שליחא

8. Matthew, the publican – Jew. The Gospel of Matthew, the first book of the New Testament, was attributed to him, though the real authorship is unknown.

9. James, son of Aphaeus – Hebrew name: יעקב בן חלפי

10. Thaddaeus – probably identical to Thaddeus of Edessa, who was a Jew

11. Simon the Canaanite – a Zealot, Judaism’s most fundamentalist sect

12. Judas Iscariot – Betrayed Jesus to the Sadducees and was then replaced. The name “Judas” (Ὶούδας) is a Greek rendering of the Hebrew name Judah (יהודה, Yehûdâh, Hebrew for “God is thanked”), which was an extremely common name for Jewish men during the first century AD.

Finally we have Paul (Saul) who was considered the apostle of all apostles. Up until the time that Paul went to Damascus after the death of Jesus, in order to be a Christian, it was necessary to be an observant circumcised Jew. In Acts 21:39 Paul answered, “I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no ordinary city. Please let me speak to the people.”

Though it can be inferred that Jews were responsible for spreading the word of Christ, this passage in Acts was blatant in that:

Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue.

Acts 18:24-26


Jesus was a communist and Christianity is communism. Igal Halfin in From Darkness to Light: Class, Consciousness, and Salvation in Revolutionary Russia written, “The Marxist communist ethos that aims for unity reflects the Christian universalist teaching that humankind is one and that there is only one god who does not discriminate among people.”

Wikipedia on “Christian communism”:

Christian communism is a theological and political theory based upon the view that the teachings of Jesus Christ compel Christians to support religious communism as the ideal social system. Although there is no universal agreement on the exact dates when communistic ideas and practices in Christianity began, many Christian communists state that evidence from the Bible suggests that the first Christians, including the apostles, established their own small communist society in the years following Jesus’ death and resurrection. Many advocates of Christian communism state that it was taught by Jesus and practiced by the apostles themselves, an argument that some historians agree with.

Both the mighty Roman Empire and Russian Empire were toppled by revolutions led by Jews. One was caused by the Christian Revolution and the other was by the Communist Revolution. Those revolutions found their biggest appeal among the have-nots and those with nothing to lose. They promised the moon to their adherents, while destroying the vibrant culture and history of the empire they were settling in. Both revolutions had a profound impact on society and both were very destructive. While communism has been roundly rejected, Christianity has continued to enslave it’s adherents with full force to this day.

Hitler and the Nazis Were Zionists

I had been confused about Hitler for a long time. When I woke up to the Jewish Question some time ago, I was on the sidelines with regards to Hitler. I had never really researched or read up on him, other than what I’ve been told in history class in grade school. There were many sites out there like Renegade Tribune and other Jew-wise and white nationalist sites that were big fans of Hitler. I had known for some time that the Holocaust story was made up and that Germany was not as evil as they were made out to be. However the Hitler being the good guy was full of contradictions. If he was the saint and the savior of the German people and the Aryan race, why did this man nearly totally destroy Poland and it’s beautiful cities? Same with Rotterdam. And what a coincidence it was that Israel was created just three years after WWII ended. There have been persistent questions about the background of Hitler and top ranking Nazi leaders. Perhaps those stories of Hitler being funded by the Rothschild weren’t so far off after all.

See this excellent piece on Hitler’s Jewish connections.

See this list of Jewish Nazis.

My sources for the following primarily come from Wikipedia and the book Hitler – Founder of Israel, by Hennecke Kardel.

Recently added note: I am going to be quoting some stuff from the Jewish Bible (i.e. Old Testament). This is where Zionism originates and Hitler was a Zionist. To understand Zionism and what his motivations were, you must understand what is in the scriptures. There is no way around it. If you are an adherent to an Abrahamic religion and get offended, I don’t know what to say other than a suggestion that you reevaluate your beliefs. Being against Jewish world hegemony and supporting Christian-Zionism, which all forms of Christianity essentially is, is contradictory.

The Jewish Hitler?

Adolf Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria, which is on the German border. His father, Alois, was the illegitimate child of Maria Schicklgruber. There is speculation on who Alois’ father was. At the Nuremberg Trials, Hitler’s legal advisor, Hans Frank, said that Alois’ father was Leopold Frankenberger, a Jew. If that is true, Hitler would be at least one-quarter Jewish. According to Hennecke Kardel, Frankenberger paid child support for Alois for fourteen years.

Hitler’s youth was mired in controversy. He had an affair with his half-niece, Geli Raubal, and got her pregnant. Shortly afterwards, she committed suicide (or possibly murdered). Hitler had romantic relationships with at least three other women that ended in suicide or a suicide attempt. According to Wikipedia, a 1943 report by Walter C. Langer for the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) describes Hitler as having repressed homosexual tendencies and opined that he was an impotent coprophile. Psychologist Henry Murray wrote a separate psychoanalytical report for the OSS in 1943 that drew similar conclusions. It appeared that Hitler had quite a bit of tendencies towards devious sexual behaviors. This wouldn’t be surprising for a Jewish person.

Hitler and family also had a cozy history with Jews. Hitler was personally instructed in the art of rhetoric and propaganda from a Jew, Erick Jan Hanussen. Maria Schicklgruber, Hitler’s paternal grandmother, was employed at a Rothschild estate. Angela Hitler, Adolph’s older half-sister, managed the Academia Judaica, a boarding house for Jews. Finally, Hitler married Eva Braun during the last weeks of their lives. DNA studies show that Braun was at least part Jewish. According to Hennecke Kardel, after Hitler annexed Austria to Germany, one of the first moves he made was to make all the villages and cemeteries of his ancestors disappear and turn them into military training grounds. Before 1933, much was written on Hitler’s Jewish connections. After Hitler took power, that subject became taboo.

Rise to Power

Adolf Hitler’s biggest skill was in propaganda and crowd manipulation. After all he mastered the art of propaganda from the Jew, Erick Jan Hanussen. After Hitler’s failed attempt at being an artist, he became interested in politics. Hitler was fiercly right-wing and was against the ideas of liberalism, communism, and democratic-socialism. In 1919, German Workers’ Party (DAP) chairman Anton Drexler, a Jew, was impressed with Hitler’s oratory skill and gave him a copy of My Political Awakening, which contained nationalistic, anti-Marxist, anti-capitalist, and anti-Semitic material. Hitler started attracting a lot of attention with his speeches to nationalists and anti-Marxist organizations. He was awarded the leader of the DAP, which became the Nazi Party in 1921.

In 1918 when Germany lost WWI, the Germans were asked to foot the entire bill for the war (debt was not paid off until 2010) through the Versailles Treaty. That war attempted to destroy the sovereignty of Germany and other central European nations and transform their governments into democratic-republics. The outcome of the war was that Germany experienced serious hyperinflation and an economic crisis. In addition, the communists had won out in Eastern Europe and there was fear that the contagion could spread west. Germans demanded change.

In 1923, in an attempted coup to oust the leaders of the Bavarian Republic, called the Beer Hall Putsch, Hitler was arrested. While Hitler was incarcerated, the half-Jew Alfred Rosenberg, became interim leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler served barely one year of his original five year sentence. While in prison, he written most of his first volume of Mein Kampf. His deputy, Rudolph Hess, a Jew, and his chauffeur, Emil Maurice, a part-Jew, helped edit the book. When Hitler was released from prison, economic conditions improved in Germany and the Nazis became less attractive. Hitler also was banned form public speaking because of his extremism. Not discouraged, he appointed the Jews Joseph Goebbels, Gregor Strasser, and Otto Strasser to expand the Nazi Party in northern Germany. When the Great Depression hit in 1929, Hitler exploited that opportunity and the Nazi Party’s popularity rose. He became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, when German president Paul von Hindenburg appointed Hitler to that position – reluctantly.

Four weeks after Hitler became chancellor, the Reichstag, home of the German parliament, was set on fire. Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch Jew communist, was convicted of setting the fire. The Nazis used this incident to arouse suspicion of communists, which damaged their standings in the upcoming election. With the communist’s loss of popularity, the Nazis and their allies, the German National People’s Party, were able to secure the majority of votes in the Reichstag. The Nazis also used the incident to curtail many civil liberties, such as the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press, not unlike the curtailment of liberties following 9/11. The Nazis wanted to block any criticisms of their party. Historians debate whether Van der Lubbe was the real instigator or whether the fire was a false flag set by the Nazis themselves.

The grave of Mariunus van der Lubbe. Memorial at the Südfriedhof in Leipzig – the stones placed are a Jewish grave symbol called matzevot, to show respect.

The Reichstag Fire and political maneuvers such as the Enabling Act of 1933 allowed the Nazis to gain more power and influence within the government. They worked hard to destroy the opposition. Many communists and the social democrats were harassed and arrested. Trade unions were dissolved. Finally in 1934, during the “Night of the Long Knives”, prominent members of the Sturmabteilung (SA), which was the original paramilitary wing of the Nazi and the protector of the Nazis, were killed off. They were thought of as being less than loyal to Hitler when he became chancellor. The orchestrators of the purge were Hermann Goring, Joseph Goebbels, Rudolf Hess, Heinrich Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich, and Hitler himself. All of these men, perhaps except Goring, had Jewish roots. When Hindenburg passed away in 1934, Hitler became Fuhrer. The transformation of Germany from a democratic-republic to a dictatorship was complete.

The Communist Jews are the Problem

“Hitler is a strong man and Germany needs him. By Jews, Hitler means the Galician Jews, who pollute Germany since the war began. Jews of pure German origin he acknowledges and treats as equals. These Eastern Jews influence the Social Democratic Party and the Communist Party. He will get rid of them for sure. Not because they are Jews, but because they are Communists and Social Democrats.”

– Paul Warburg

Hitler’s rise to power was financed by powerful industrialists and bankers. Banks such as Mendelsohn & Co., Kuhn Loeb & Co., Warburg, JP Morgan, Bankhaus J.H. Stein, and Samuel & Samuel helped finance Hitler. Those firms were largely founded by German-Jews. Large sums of money were also given to Hitler by industrialist Oehler and by sugar manufacturer Frankenthal. Prescott Bush, a strongly suspected Jew, helped fund Hitler. Henry Ford, another suspected Jew and a 33rd degree Freemason, helped Hitler’s rise to power as well. The reason why Jews (and suspected Jews) financed Hitler, was their fear of eastern Jewish communism taking over Europe and nationalizing their businesses. These wealthy industrialists would see their wealth evaporate if that happened. Western Jews have always been suspicious of the radicalism of Eastern Jewry. Though in his rhetoric and speeches Hitler generalized about Jews, he was really referring to the eastern Jews. Jewish Nazi leader Hans Frank once remarked,

I don’t want to think about differentiation, which the propagandist Goebbels makes between Western Capitalistic Jews and the Eastern Bolshevist Jews even though, of course, all of us make such a differentiation. Propaganda has to be simple, otherwise people will not understand us. (Kardel, Hitler – Founder of Israel, p95)

The Nazis were not about cleansing the Reich of all Jews – far from it. Wealthy and influential Jewish businessmen, particularly the bankers, and those who supported Hitler’s ideology were protected. Ernst Roehm, who was co-founder of the SA, had this to say,

“All German Jews are to remain in Germany as citizens, provided they shall have a permission to hold posts of university professors, public prosecutors, judges, bankers etc. Careers of Jewish First World War participants are not limited, but the Eastern Jews, who migrated to Germany after the War, will be deported.”

Though Roehm was an early admirer of Hitler, he was seen as a potential rival and was later executed during the “Night of the Long Knives.”

According to the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, even half-Jews could be approved to be a citizen of the Reich as long as they didn’t practice the Jewish faith (at least not openly) or have a Jewish spouse.

While Nazi leaders espoused the virtues of national socialism and criticized capitalism, they quietly took in money from the capitalists:

When someone requested Mr. Goebbels to explain what the Socialism means, he responded tangibly, but with a Levantic philosophy: “The National Socialism is not yet fully defined, but in the stage of creation. It is still modified and for this reason it can not be totally embraced. The National Socialism has simplified the German thinking.”

Corresponding to this were the conjectures of foes within the socialist camp: “In the beginning the inflexible Adolf Hitler was acting decently. Today, he is only a creature of the big industry. Does anybody really think that the iron and coal magnates would give away their mighty pecunia to the Union whose goal is to expropriate them and later on to honor Teutonic God by hanging them on the nearest street lamp?” (Kardel, 79)

Walther Funk, a Jew, was an economist born into a merchant family. He was a Nazi official who served as Reich Minister for Economic Affairs (1938–1945) and was president of Reichsbank from 1939 to 1945. According to Kardel, by eliminating remnants of the caste system he allowed people to act selectively and in full authority as the Darwin’s theory proclaims: “The fittest succeed”. Socialization of companies or department stores, as the Party’s Program provided, was not pursued.

The Zionist Conspiracy

“It is essential that the sufferings of Jews … become worse … this will assist in realization of our plans … I have an excellent idea … I shall induce anti-semites to liquidate Jewish wealth … The anti-semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-semites shall be our best friends.”

– Theodor Herzl, 1897

Nazis leaders, including Hitler, were hardcore Zionists. They had one thing in mind and that was to create a homeland for the Jewish people. While Winston Churchill, though part-Jew himself, was hesitant on the Israeli project, Hitler was going all in. In August 1933, Hitler and the German Zionists entered into the Haavara Agreement, which encouraged emigration by allowing Jews to transfer property and funds from Germany to Palestine. This agreement helped make possible the migration of 60,000 German Jews to Palestine in 1933–1939.

“My dear (Hans) Frank” said Hitler, “The possibility of being a quarter-Jew is not my ‘dark spot’ which makes me furious. I want everything to be clear. So I order you, as my Attorney General of the German Reich, to solve this question legally. Do not forget one thing – the will of the Jews to migrate to Palestine is of the highest priority in the wealth of our power. So let them leave our country, and you take care of the legality.” (Kardel, 95)

Adolf Eichmann upon returning home from Haifa on October 2, 1937: “People of Jewish national circles are very excited about the radical German politics toward the Jews, because this has increased Jewish population in Palestine many-fold. In a short time they will become the majority among the Arabs.”‘ (Kardel, 99)

The English, as well as the Third Reich Government, in the official declarations promised that the land in Palestine will belong to the Jews as their National Homeland. While the British Mandate rulers broke said promise with patrol boats, destroyers and airplanes, Hitler’s helpers and helpers’ helpers did everything possible by confiscation, fire and murder in order to satisfy the agreements made with Zionists. (Kardel, 109)

The pro-Aryan and anti-Jewish paper Das Schwarze Korps,which was the official paper of the SS, was Zionist to the core. They written, “The time is near when the Palestine will be taken again by its sons, who through the past one thousand years were lost all over the World. Let our good wishes accompany them.”

Hitler, knowing much about Zionism (International Judaism) got excited (about Hjalmar Schacht’s proposal of financing Jewish emigration out of Germany and into Palestine) and the credulous Schacht went to London to bargain with the Bank of Samuel & Samuel. Lord Bearsted, previously known as Marcus Samuel, asked for a few more days to rethink all of this because first he has to negotiate with Chaim Weizman, the President of the Zionist’s World Congress. “Meshuge” (“Crazy” – he thought in Hebrew) – replied the Zionist Leader, while listening to the plan. “Who, I have to ask, will go to Palestine? I would rather see the destruction of the German Jews than the ruin of the State of Israel because of them.” (Kardel, 113)

The Nazi leaders were followers of Judaism and were radical scripture followers. That much is clear from their behavior.

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, the people of Jerusalem have said of your fellow exiles and all the other Israelites, ‘They are far away from the LORD ; this land was given to us as our possession.’

“Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says:

Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.’

“Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again.’

Ezekiel 11:14-17

Hitler believed he was the Jewish Messiah. The Jewish Nazis believed in racial separatism and keeping the nations pure. They promoted hatred of the Jews. They prohibited marriage between a Jew and a German. This racial separatism and mutual hatred had the intended effect of strengthening Jewish ethnocentrism and solidarity. This also encouraged Jews to emigrate out the Reich and disperse their seed elsewhere. What other event in history was this similar to? The Spanish Inquisitions of the 15th century of course. The Inquisitions was headed by the Jew, Tomas Torquemada. The result of the Inquisitions was that Jews would be dispersed to other parts of Europe, the Levant, and the Americas and infect their poison there.

For you (Jews) will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.

Isaiah 54:3


Even if you don’t believe that Hitler was a Jew and that there is no Jewish-Nazi conspiracy, it would be impossible to overlook the many important members of the Nazi Party who were clearly Jewish. It was not that there were merely random low-level Jews among Hitler’s men. It was that Jews made up some of the most prominent members among the Nazis.

Reinhard Heydrich (1904-42) – Was one of the most powerful member of the Nazi Party and had almost unlimited powers within the Reich. Heydrich was director of the Gestapo. He was the founding head of the Sicherheitsdienst (Security Service, SD), an intelligence organization charged with seeking out and neutralizing resistance to the Nazi Party via arrests, deportations, and murders. Heydrich was director of the Reich Security Main Office (which oversaw the Gestapo, Kripo, and SD). He helped organize Kristallnacht, a series of attacks against Jewish businesses and synagogues. Heydrich was considered the principal architect of the “Holocaust.” He chaired the January 1942 Wannsee Conference which formalized plans for the “Final Solution to the Jewish question.” His outline of the Final Solution was:

(a.) to prepare for an increasing emigration of Jews

(b.) to guide the stream of moving emigrants

(c.) in certain cases to accelerate the emigration process. He called this “the goal of cleaning the German living space of Jews in legal ways.” On that day Heydrich did not talk about the extermination of Jews.

Wikipedia on Richard Bruno Heydrich, the father of Reinhard: (The) Heydrichs weren’t noted as being particularity antisemitic, and the family enjoyed cordial relations with their Jewish neighbors. Many Jewish children attended the Halle Conservatory, Bruno rented out the basement of the school to a local Jewish salesman, and his eldest son Reinhard was friends with the son of the local cantor, Abraham Lichtenstein.

Bryan Mark Rigg, a Jew, written this: When Heydrich was a child in Halle, neighborhood children made fun of him, calling him “Isi” (Izzy), short for Isidor, a name with a Jewish connotation. This nickname upset Heydrich. When he served in the navy, many of his comrades believed he was Jewish. Some called him the “blond Moses.” Others who lived in Halle have claimed that everybody believed that his father, the musician Bruno Heydrich, was a Jew. Half-Jew Alice Schaper nee Rohr, who took piano lessons from Bruno, claimed, “We all knew he was Jewish. …He looked just like a typical Jew.”

Heydrich, a telegraphist and a sexual pervert, served in the Navy but after having insulted a girl who was impregnated by him, was discharged under allegation of “disgracing the soldier’s honor”. Reinhard Heydrich was convinced that some almighty force eliminated his predominantly Jewish traits. According to the name specialist Mr. Kessler, many Jews with the name Goldman had changed it to their favorite “Reinhard” (meaning “Pure to the Full Extent”) (Kardel, 89)

Heydrich was assassinated in Czechoslovakia in 1942 by an opposition group. As punishment, Hitler destroyed the town of Lezaky and murdered all it’s male inhabitants. Lezaky is where Hitler thought the group responsible for aiding the killing came from.

A very Jewish looking face.

Adolf Eichmann (1906-62) – Was a prominent member of the Nazi Party and considered one of the major organizers of the “Holocaust.” In actuality, Eichmann was one of the main reasons why the state of Israel was a success. As a Jew, he helped carry out Jewish biblical prophecies of the creation of Israel by the sacrifices of Jews and Gentiles.

According to Wikipedia, before the war, Eichmann traveled to British Mandatory Palestine with his superior Herbert Hagen in 1937 to assess the possibility of Germany’s Jews voluntarily emigrating to that country, disembarking with forged press credentials at Haifa.

In 1938, Eichmann was posted to Vienna to help organize Jewish emigration from Austria, which had just been integrated into the Reich through the Anschluss. Jewish community organizations were placed under supervision of the SD and tasked with encouraging and facilitating Jewish emigration. Funding came from money seized from other Jewish people and organizations, as well as donations from overseas, which were placed under SD control. Eichmann was promoted to SS-Obersturmführer (first lieutenant) in July 1938, and appointed to the Central Agency for Jewish Emigration in Vienna, created in August in a room in the former Palais Albert Rothschild at Prinz-Eugen-Straße 20–22. By the time he left Vienna in May 1939, nearly 100,000 Jews had left Austria legally, and many more had been smuggled out to Palestine and elsewhere.

Then Eichmann, the specialist in foreign matters, moved into the building of the “Israelites Cultural Council” in Prague. There he set up a Center with 32 Departments, which was called “Central Council for the Solution of the Jewish Problem in Boehmen and Maehren”. And here too he employed mainly Jews. Their task was to send abroad 300 Jews daily. (Kardel, 102)

After the war, Eichmann went into hiding but after a number of years, he was finally captured by Israeli intelligence in 1960. He was brought to Israel to stand trial for his crimes against the Jewish people. In defense, his lawyer (Robert) Servatius in the Jerusalem Court demanded a medal for Eichmann’s deeds for his efforts of resettling the Jews in Palestine. Eichmann however did not deny the “Holocaust” nor his participation in it. Eichmann was executed in Ramia, Israel in 1962.

Julius Streicher (1885-1946) – Was a prominent member of the Nazi Party who was the founder of Der Sturmer, a highly antisemitic newspaper which became the main propaganda outlet for the Nazi Party. During the war, Streicher’s articles demanded the annihilation and extermination of the Jewish race. Der Sturmer was very successful and Streicher became rich from it. Though he complained about Jewish sexual perversion in Der Sturmer, he himself had high amounts of lust for sex and engaged in perverted behaviors which would get him in trouble within his party. Streicher was part Jewish and he helped facilitate Jewish immigration into Palestine.

For the sake of this move to the “Holy Land”, Mr. Streicher with his “Stuermer” paper did his best. He insulted, as much as possible, all the Western Democracies which were willing to take the Jews in and in this way hinder emigration to Palestine. (Kardel, 102)

Streicher was convicted at Nuremberg of crimes against humanity and was sentenced to death. According to Wikipedia, at the moment of his execution on October 16, 1946, Streicher’s was the most melodramatic of the hangings carried out that night. At the bottom of the scaffold he cried out “Heil Hitler!”. When he mounted the platform, he delivered his last sneering reference to Jewish scripture, snapping “Purimfest!” Purim is a festival that celebrates the slaughter of Gentiles. Streicher was cremated in the name of Abraham Goldberg.

Heinrich Himmler (1900-45) – Was the longest serving leader of the SS. As the Reichsführer, he selected Heydrich as deputy. Himmler controlled the Waffen-SS, it’s military branch. Hitler briefly appointed him as military commander and later Commander of the Replacement Army and General Plenipotentiary for the administration of the entire Third Reich, late in the war. In early 1945, Himmler, realizing that the war was lost, attempted to open peace talks with the Allies. Hitler, upset with this, ordered for his arrest. Himmler tried to flee but was caught by British forces. While under custody, Himmler committed suicide. Himmler was considered one of the architects of the “Holocaust.”

At the time when Heydrich, as an apprentice to the post of Chief of the Security Services discovered that Hitler’s and Himmler’s grandparents were Jewish, and as yet did not destroy or change his own Identification Documents, nor remove cemetery tombstones, especially of his grandmother Sarah, the two Superiors, Hitler and Himmler, advised him what to do, and agreed to keep him at the post as planned. They also ordered Heydrich to change Himmler’s Jewish-Italian grandmother into an Aryan by forging her I.D. (Kardel, 90)

Himmler’s daughter, Gudrun, married Wulf Dieter Burwitz.

Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) – Was chief propagandist of the Nazi Party and the Reich Minister of Propaganda from 1933 to 1945. Goebbels had excellent speaking and persuasion skills. He was one of Hitler’s most trusted comrade. Goebbels founded the Nazi paper Der Angriff. Though it was virulently anti-Jewish, it contained numerous pro-Zionist articles. When Jews were being deported out of Germany in 1941, Goebbels ordered that all Jews wear the yellow bade. Hitler and Goebbels also worked together to weaken the influence of the Catholic Church and harass Catholic leaders who were critical of the regime. Goebbels wanted to limit the influence of the Protestant churches as well.

Goebbels was born to Spanish-Dutch Jews. He was so Jewish that he would often be called “Rabbi” in school. According to Wikipedia, in 1932, Goebbels commissioned the publication of a pamphlet of his family tree to refute the rumors that his maternal grandmother was of Jewish ancestry. Goebbels was a womanizer, a common behavior among Jewish men. He was also frail and physically weak. While enrolled at the University of Heidelberg, Goebbels was hoping to write his doctoral thesis under the supervision of Friedrich Gundolf, a Jew. Because Gundolf was no longer teaching, he wrote his thesis under Max Freherr von Waldberg instead, also a Jew. The year after he earned his PhD in 1921, he had a love affair with Else Janke, a half-Jew.

At the end of the war, Goebbels poisoned his six kids with cyanide and he and his wife committed suicide.

Rudolf Hess (1894-1987) – Was born to an English-Jewish mother. Hess was a leading member of the Nazi party and was Deputy Führer from 1933 to 1941. He was born into a family of wealthy merchants. Hess studied geopolitics under Karl Haushofer, a Western Jew and a follower of Lebensraum (the expansion of the German borders into Eastern territory). Hess helped edit Mein Kampf, which was written by Hitler. According to Wikipedia, Hitler decreed on the outbreak of war on 1 September 1939 that Hermann Göring was his official successor, and named Hess as next in line. In addition to appearing on Hitler’s behalf at speaking engagements and rallies, Hess signed into law much of the government’s legislation, including the Nuremberg Laws of 1935.

Hess was fairly protective of Jewish business interests:

The Fuehrer’s Representative, Hess, in a circular to all Party members, prohibited extravagances of any kind against Jewish Department Stores in Karstadt, in Tietz and so forth. The same order was applied to Jewish banks like Deutsche, Dresdner or Commerz Bank. (Kardel, 86)

Hess was put on trial in Nuremberg in 1946 and given a life sentence, instead of death.

Admiral Wilhelm Canaris (1887-1945) – Was a Greek-Jewish admiral and chief of the German military-intelligence wing, Abwehr. According to Wikipedia, Canaris first suggested the use of the Star of David to identify Jews in 1935 to 1936, which set them apart from German citizens within the Reich, heralded their isolation, presaged their compulsory resettlement and ultimately led to their physical annihilation.

Canaris eventually turned his back on the Nazi regime and started to actively resist them. For that he was executed in a concentration camp.

Kurt Gerstein (1905-45) – Was an SS officer put on trial for his role in the extermination of Jews through “gassings.” He produced the infamous Gerstein Report, a very unreliable and contradictory report that was so implausible that it was not even permitted to be used at the Nuremberg trial. This report claimed that up to 25 million people were gassed. Gerstein distributed these false reports to Western Allies.

(In) a letter, priest Buchholz on Gerstein: “He reported to me about this all openly and frankly. He counted names and locations of the death camps. He talked about the ‘daily efficiency’ of various incinerators and gas chambers…, about the daily profits from gold teeth, fillings etc., and told me that the number of victims came up to ten million, which was not known to us and was so terrible, that it was absolutely unbelievable.” (Kardel, 150)

Clearly Gerstein’s report was used to garner sympathy for the Jews and to encourage countries to open their borders to “poor suffering Jews.” In 1936, as a member of the Nazi Party, he was reprimanded for distributing 8500 anti-Nazi material. In 1938, Gerstein was arrested a second time for conduct detrimental to the Nazi regime. After being released he had a “change of heart” with regards to the Nazis and sought reinstatement. There was no clear motivation as to why he would rejoin, other than to spy on it. It was said that Gerstein supplied the gas to exterminate the Jews, but clearly that cannot be believed as there was no proof that gas was used to exterminate victims. Gerstein committed suicide in 1945. He was a Jew and Gerstein is a Jewish surname.

Gottfried Feder (1883-1941) – As the leading Nazi Party theorist on economic questions, (Feder) didn’t have any scruples about taking money from the Jews. This educated and traveling extensively man, made multitude of contacts with businesses, banks, and industries and for the NSDAP disposal mediated funds from the Jewish banks. (Kardel, 57)

Hans Friedrich Karl Günther (1891-1968) – Was a German writer and a eugenist who joined the Nazi party in 1932 as the only leading racial theorist before the Nazis came to power a year later.

“Based on observation it is apparent that the dispersion of Jews among non- Jewish people causes endless commotion which in effect escalates to hatred. Understanding of this phenomenon should be undertaken courageously by the Zionism itself. The Zionism should see it clearly that only the removal of Jews from the cohabitation with non-Jews will create dignified relations. Establishment of an up-standing and appropriately secured Homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine seems to be politically possible.” – Hans Gunther, 1923

Hans Frank (1900-46) – Was Hitler’s Attorney at Law and the son of a Jewish lawyer. Frank served as head of the General Government in Nazi-occupied Poland and was known for his reign of terror. He oversaw four “extermination” camps. During the fall of 1933, Frank announced that the “The Jewish question can only be solved by establishing a Jewish State” at the Nuremberg Reich’s Party Day in 1933. Frank was sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials in 1946 for his crimes against humanity.

Leopold von Mildenstein (1902-68) – Was a Jewish SS officer who spent six months in Palestine. From August 1934 to June 1936, von Mildenstein worked in the headquarters of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD), the security service of the SS, in Section II/112, in charge of the Jewish Desk, with the title of Judenreferent (Jewish Affairs Officer). This title meant that he was responsible for reporting on “Jewish Affairs” under the overall command of Reinhard Heydrich.

During those years, von Mildenstein favoured a policy of encouraging Germany’s Jewish population to emigrate to Palestine, and in pursuit of this policy he developed positive contacts with Zionist organisations. SS officials were even instructed to encourage the activities of the Zionists within the Jewish community, who were to be favoured over the assimilationists, said to be the real danger to Nazism. – Wikipedia

Odilo Globocnik (1904-45) – According to Wikipedia, (Globocnik) was an official of the Nazi Party and later a high-ranking leader of the SS. Globocnik had a leading role in Operation Reinhard, the organized murder of around one and a half million Jews, of mostly Polish origin, during the Holocaust in the Majdanek, Treblinka, Sobibor and Belzec extermination camps. Historian Michael Allen described him as “the vilest individual in the vilest organization ever known.” Globocnik was a Jew.

Friedrich-Wilhelm Krüger (1894-1945) – According to Wikipedia, Krüger was a high-ranking member of the SA and the SS. Between 1939 and 1943 he was the Higher SS and Police Leader in the General Government, giving him command of all police and security forces in German-occupied Poland. In this capacity, he organized and supervised numerous crimes against humanity and had major responsibility for the German genocide of the Polish nation: the extermination of six million Poles (three million of them Polish Jews).

Krüger may not have been Jewish but was married to a half-Jew.

Franz Pfeffer von Salomon (1888-1968) – Was first Supreme Leader of the Sturmabteilung (SA). Expelled from the Nazi Party in 1941.

Erhard Milch (1892-1972) – Was a field marshal who oversaw the development of the German air force (Luftwaffe) as part of the re-armament of Nazi Germany following World War I. He was convicted of war crimes at Nuremberg but only served a few years in prison. Milch was the son of Anton Milch, a Jewish pharmacist.


Ignatius Timothy Trebitsch-Lincoln (1879-1943) – Was a Hungarian-born adventurer and convicted con artist. Lincoln, of Jewish descent, spent parts of his life as a Protestant missionary, Anglican priest, British Member of Parliament for Darlington, German right-wing politician and spy, Nazi collaborator, and Buddhist abbot in China.

“Now tell me, please, Mr.Trebitsch,” Hitler asked, “what do you think about Palestine as a solution to the whole caboodle?”

“Two beers,” Trebitsch-Lincoln exclaimed and mused.

After a moment and another sip he beamed with his beautiful Vienna charm loudly and gaily: “I’ve got it – THE NATIONAL SOCIALISTS AND NATIONAL ZIONISTS UNITE!!! Your wish has God’s ear.”

Kurt Eisner (1867-1919) – As a Jewish communist, Eisner organized the Socialist Revolution that overthrew the Wittelsbach monarchy in Bavaria in November 1918, which led to his being described as “the symbol of the Bavarian revolution.” He was assassinated a year later by Anton Graf von Arco, who himself was a Jew. Von Arco was a far-right activist.

Alfred Rosenberg (1893-1946) – Rosenberg was half-Jewish and born in Estonia. According to Wikipedia, Rosenberg was a Nazi theorist and official who was later convicted at the Nuremberg trials and executed in 1946. Rosenberg was one of the principal ideologues of the Nazi Party and editor of the Nazi paper Völkischer Beobachter. In 1941, Peter Viereck wrote: “In molding Germany’s ‘psychology of frightfulness’ Rosenberg wields an influence as powerful as that of the much publicized Goebbels and the much feared Himmler and his secret police.”

Ernst Franz Sedgwick Hanfstaengl (1887-1975) Was a German-born businessman who was educated at Harvard. Hanfstaengl took over the management of his father’s publishing business in New York City after graduation. He was a close friend of Hitler and joined the Nazis in 1931 before defecting. Hanfstaengl then joined the FDR administration in the US. Hanfstaengl was half-Jewish and his own research revealed that FDR and Hitler were Jewish as well.

Jörg Lanz von Liebenfels (1874-1954) – Was a Catholic monk and a white nationalist and racialist who, along with Guido von List, invented Ariosophy in 1915. Ariosophy means “wisdom of the Aryans.” It was considered an occult and esoteric ideology and may have inspired Nazism. Liebenfels supported castration and sterilization of the inferior races. Hitler and Liebenfels had met on occasion before Hitler’s rise to power. Liebenfels also was the founder of Ostara magazine which published anti-Jewish and Volkisch (German ethno-nationalist movement) theories. This publication may have served as inspiration for Hitler’s anti-Semitism.

Liebenfels was a Jew and was a Zionist. He promoted Hitler’s aim of the founding of the Jewish state of Israel. Liebenfels had a fallout with Hitler, when Hitler refused to acknowledge him and his works. Liebenfels then accused him of stealing and corrupting his ideas. He said Hitler was of “inferior racial stock.”

“We counterrevolutionaries confess to the Jews full rights to their own State in Palestine.” – Lanz von Liebenfels

Kurt Baron von Schröder (1889-1966) – Was a wealthy Jewish banker and financier.

Schröder had organized the banking firm of J. Henry Schröder in London and J. Henry Schröder Banking Corporation in New York… in order to act as conduit for I.T.T. money funnelled to Heinrich Himmler’s SS organization in 1944, while World War II was in progress and the United States was at war with Germany. – Antony Sutton

Philipp Lenard (1862-1947) – Was son of a Jewish merchant of Pressburg, David Lenard. In 1936, he was honored by Hitler with the National Award for Arts and Sciences, and also with the NSDAP’s Golden Sign of Honor.

Theodor Lewald (1860-1947) – A Jew and a member of the Third Reich. Supervised the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.


There were at least a couple of notable false flag attacks to start German’s entry into WWII.

Herschel Greenspan, a Jew, killed a member of the Nazi Party, Ernst von Rath in November 1938. This was used as a pretext for Kristalknact. Greenspan was not even pursued by the Nazis. Kristalknact got (some) of the Germans aroused and caused some destruction of Jewish property. Taking advantage of this situation, the Nazis formulated plans to deport the Jews as in the best interest of both sides. Many sympathizers outside the Reich wanted the Jews to go to places like Switzerland, the US, Cuba, etc. However, the Zionists were insistent that they go to Palestine instead.

On August 31, 1939, the Nazis staged an attack on a German radio station located near the Polish border in Gleiwitz (was in German territory but today inside Poland). The Nazis were German SS officers dressed up in Polish uniform. Hitler gave an address condemning the attacks and announcing his plans to retaliate against Poland. This marked the beginning of WWII.


Any real researcher of the “holocaust” knows that the official number of Jewish victims was far less than the six million number that is heard repeatedly. This number apparently has significance in Judaism and comes up over and over again in history, before and during Hitler’s war.

The actual number of Jews murdered was far less than six million and probably was no more than three or four hundred thousand.

In 1952, in an U.S.’ newspaper, a Jewish statistician estimated 350,000 victims. Thus far this estimate rose to six million. “If we Jews declare that it was six million, then this would be a shameful lie” said the statistician. (“Deutsche Hochschullehrer-Zeitung” (“German High School Teacher’s Newspaper”), Tuebingen, Nr. 3/ 4, 1959)

Among many revisionist materials out there, Thomas Dalton’s Debating the Holocaust absolutely destroys the official Holocaust story by using science, logic, and common sense. There are many other researchers out there such as Arthur Butz, Jurgen Graf, Carlo Mattogno, and Germar Rudolf who do the same. The fact is, it was impossible to gas millions of victims to death, cremate them, and then erase every single bit of evidence, with the type of equipment and personnel they had. Then you had the story of gas vans with diesel exhaust being used to kill tens of thousands, which is completely absurd and inefficient.

Winston Churchill’s 4448 page, six volume set called “The Second World War”, published during 1948 to 1953, never mentioned anything about a Holocaust, a Jewish genocide, or any gas chambers. The same with Dwight Eisenhower’s 559 page book, Crusade in Europe, published in 1948. Both men had Jewish ancestry.

The fact is, the number of Jewish deaths pale in comparison to the number of non-Jewish deaths during WWII. Some historians estimate the number of WWII deaths upwards of 60 million. Yet you seldom hear of the other tens of millions of victims, many of whom died horribly. The Nazis made sure to minimize Jewish deaths and suffering. After all, they wouldn’t want their own people to suffer. Yes the Nazis wreaked havoc on many Jews by displacing them and uprooting their lives and livelihoods. Many Jews died during forced displacements of disease and malnutrition. And many Jews suffered from allied bombings as well.

It was only after the war that the Zionists exaggerated the events, which took place during the years 1942 and 1943, to create sympathy for the Jews. With this, they forced England to honor the Balfour Declaration. Thus the discriminatory actions pursued by Hitler, Heydrich, Eichmann, and Gerstein paid off with long term reparations as the basis for establishment of the State of Israel. Those who performed the acts of “extermination” had no doubt that regardless of the war outcome, the “two thousand year wanderers” of this Globe will regain their “Holy Land.”

The “Jewish Expressions” newspaper printed in Germany, dated January 15, 1960, had no doubts either as it wrote: “The large emigration waves are caused only by the forcible departure from the domicile country.” It appears from all the Hitler’s destructive dealings with the Jews, ever since his Vienna days, that he differentiated Eastern Jews – as said Rathenau: “The Asiatic Hordes”, or simply Heydrich: “The Mob” – from the small minority of the Western Jews whom he recognized, because they supported him in seizing the power with millions of dollars. (Kardel 152)

It is clear that the Holocaust myth has been used to gain sympathy for the Jews and exaggerate Jewish suffering, not just after the war but even during the war, as some members of the Nazi Party, such as Kurt Gerstein, did.


Do not be afraid, Jacob (represents the Jews) my servant, for I am with you,” declares the LORD. “Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you.”

– Jeremiah 46:28

The Jewish professor Hannah Arendt in her book “Eichmann in Jerusalem”, printed in 1964, wrote that the Jewish leaders’ participation in the extermination of then-own kind, without any doubt is the darkest chapter in the Jewish history.

That in Amsterdam as in Warsaw, that in Berlin as in Bucharest etc., the Nazis could rely on Jewish functionaries who prepared lists of persons and then-wealth; who collected from them money to cover costs of deportation and extermination; who kept an eye on victims’ apartments; who created their own police to capture other Jews so to bring them to the deportation trains and then assist them to their bitter end, as well as that in the death camps extermination acts were performed by the Jews, all of that was confirmed by the witnesses at the Jerusalem Trial. And these facts, as above, were very well known. The witnesses also confirmed, that the Jewish “Special Squads” worked in gas chambers and crematoriums; that they pulled gold teeth from the dead; cut their hair off; dug graves for the victims and later opened them in order to remove traces of the mass murder; that Jewish technicians built the gas chambers in the “Autonomous” Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia, although none were there but only a Jewish hangman.

Hitler, thanks to his association with the Vienna Jews and his teacher Lanz von Liebenfels, knew about the extreme hatred of the cast-off Jews towards their kinsmen. Just like he made use of this hatred in the straggle for power by employing the Jews in his decisive “body and stomach” gazettes: “People’s Observer” and the “Stormman” (“Stuermer”), so during the War he made use of it for destruction of the Jews. (Kardel 149)

On May 14, 1948, the President of the United States, Harry Truman, acknowledged Israel as a new State. David Gruen from Poland, better known as David Ben Gurion (“A wounded male dove”), as Israel’s first president exclaimed: “A Jew, who does not live in Israel, lives in a sin!”

Hitler at last has finished the “WORK OF THE LORD” by founding the State for the Jews, who were dogged by the ill fortune for over two millennia.

– Hennecke Kardel



Hitler’s war resulted in:

  • state of Israel created
  • outpouring of sympathy for the Jews
  • Zionists get what they’ve wanted
  • destruction of Germany and it’s best warriors and brightest intellectuals
  • endless reparations from Germany and other European countries to Israel
  • bankers and industrialists profit big
  • death of tens of millions of non-Jews
  • massive destruction of the history, architecture, and culture of the non-Jews
  • Gentile racial awareness and racial solidarity becomes taboo
  • world that is much more sympathetic towards eradicating racism by all means

During the war, Hitler made blunder after blunder, especially in his failed attempt to conquer the Soviet Union and destroy communism. When the US entered the war in 1941, Hitler knew that the war was lost but ordered his men to keep fighting even when they had no chance. At that point he was delusional, but felt he was fulfilling “the work of the Lord.” The work he was fulfilling was the continued destruction of the Goyim. During his rise to power, Hitler fooled the masses by pretending to be the savior. He took existing conservative German values and transferred those values to the state. He was the most devious controlled opposition that man has ever seen. Far from being a hero to the Aryan race, Hitler was a psychopath who harmed both Jews and non-Jews. Hitler said one thing but did another. Yes, he spoke truth about Jewish bankers and Jewish infiltrators. That’s how you get people to listen and support you. In the end Hitler protected Jewish power while destroying everything else.

We are seeing similar patterns today. The white nationalist movement are being led by neocon Jews such as Richard Spencer, Jason Kessler, Matt Heimbach, Mike Enoch, and many others. The “Jew-wise” sites are led by Jews such as Jeff Rense, Nathaniel Kapner, and Michael Hoffman. David Duke and Kevin MacDonald are strongly suspected to be Jews. Folks today continue listening to fake nationalists and “truthers”. One thing we know from history is that no one learns from history.

Hitler did not rise to power from a grassroots campaign. He was carefully selected because of his rhetoric skills and his full belief in Zionism. Who selected him? Those with money. And who has the money? I think you know. You are controlled by the ones you take money from. No exceptions.

The Story of Acts and What’s Wrong With It

The Acts of the Apostles is considered among the most important books of the Christian Bible (New Testament). Acts comes right after the four synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The gospels narrates the birth, ministry, death, and ascension of Jesus Christ. In the story of Acts, twelve apostles are appointed to spread the message of Jesus. The premise of Acts, as well as the central message of Christianity, is that through Jesus you can expect eternal heavenly paradise as long as you repent for your sins and believe that Jesus is savior. What distinguishes Acts from the other books of the New Testament is the emphasis that the Jews are no different than anybody else. But because they rejected Jesus Christ they remain as Jews.

In fact the entire premise of the Book of Acts is that under the guidance of Paul the Apostle (a Jewish convert to Christianity), the Jews were urged to accept Christ. The apostles were appointed as missionaries to convey the message of Christ after he was killed and supposedly risen to heaven. According to the Bible, the world is ugly and full of evil. Man is evil just for being alive. It was Christ, a man who “died for our sins”, that came to the rescue. He instructed the apostles, from heaven, to spread his message – repent of sins and be saved. Paul (Saul) was at the beginning a persecutor of Christians until Jesus turned his way in a vision from heaven. So moved by his vision he spread the message of Christ. First to his people, the Jews in Judea. They rejected the message and treated Saul as a traitor and as a danger to their people. Paul thus fled and conveyed his message outside of Judea to Gentiles and the Jews in the diaspora. He performed miracles to “prove” that he was sent by Jesus. The Gentiles converted but the Jews remained largely unconvinced.

The 12 Apostles of Jesus are Simon (Peter), Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew (Nathaniel), Thomas, Matthew, James, Thaddaeus, Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot (replaced by Matthias). Finally we have Paul (Saul) who was the apostle of all apostles.

The Story of Acts

Apostle Peter (Simon) addresses the Jews in Jerusalem. He tells them that they killed Christ and the only way they can be saved is to ask Christ for forgiveness:

Acts 2:22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.

2:36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you (Jews) crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” 37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other  apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

The apostles impress the Jews by performing miracles:

5:12 The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. 13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people.

14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number.

The apostles were persecuted by the Jewish authorities for stirring up trouble:

5:17 Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy. 18 They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out.

After disciple Stephen was killed by an angry mob with the approval of Saul (Paul), Saul began persecuting followers of Christ:

8:1 On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. 2 Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. 3 But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison.

Jesus appears to Saul, after Saul was persecuting Christians, and blinded him as punishment:

9:1 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. 3 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

5 “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. 6 “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

7 The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. 8 Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. 9 For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Saul begged for forgiveness, got his sight restored, and became a changed man. He was essentially appointed to get all Gentiles to worship Yahweh, the god of the Jews. Christianity was to be the light at the end of the tunnel, as a way to “rescue” Gentiles from their barbaric ways and their “filthy” pagan beliefs. Saul (Paul at this point) was appointed by Christ to spearhead the message (to both Jews and Gentiles):

9:15 But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man (Saul) is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.

Gentiles and Jews are supposed to be treated by God equally. Jews however were critical of sharing their god with the Gentiles, as they saw the Gentiles as unequal:

11:1 The apostles and the believers throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God. 2 So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers (Jews) criticized him 3 and said, “You went into the house of uncircumcised men (Gentiles) and ate with them.”

Peter the Apostle explains to the Jews why Gentiles were blessed by God as well:

11:15 “As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. 16 Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ 17 So if God gave them (Gentiles) the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?”

11:18 When they (Jews) heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”

Jews and Gentiles given the message of Christ:

11:19 Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that broke out when Stephen was killed traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, spreading the word only among Jews. 20 Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 The Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.

Other Jews remained skeptical of the Gentiles and believe they have to be like Jews in order to be saved:

15:1 Certain people came down from Judea to Antioch and were teaching the believers: “Unless you are circumcised, according to the custom taught by Moses, you cannot be saved.”

Peter answers that God does not discriminate (this is actually a total contradiction from the Old Testament):

15:7 “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. 8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. 9 He did not discriminate between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith.

10 Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of Gentiles a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors have been able to bear? 11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.”

God blesses the Gentiles as long as they abandon their customs and their pagan beliefs:

15:19 “It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. 20 Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.

Some Jews in the diaspora believed and spread the message of Jesus:

17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. 12 As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men (Gentiles).

But unlike Gentiles, most Jews were skeptics of Christ. Paul thus is fed up when preaching to a synagogue in Corinth:

18:5 When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Messiah. 6 But when they opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent of it. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.”

Paul claims that the Jewish Messiah is Jesus:

18:28 For he (Paul) vigorously refuted his Jewish opponents in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Messiah.

… and God and Jesus are universal.

20:21 I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

Paul plans to go to Jerusalem but knows he will not be received well by them:

20:22 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.

Paul considers his life to be worth nothing. This is an attitude propagated all throughout the Christian Bible. That your real life is worthless, so why even bother when you can enjoy paradise in your afterlife.

20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

After Paul preaches in Jerusalem, the Jews had enough and want him punished. Paul faces a hearing at the Sanhedrin. Paul admits he is a Pharisee, which is among the most radical Jewish sect:

23:6 Then Paul, knowing that some of them were Sadducees and the others Pharisees, called out in the Sanhedrin, “My brothers, I am a Pharisee, descended from Pharisees. I stand on trial because of the hope of the resurrection of the dead.

Paul was considered a troublemaker among Jew:

24:5 “We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world.

Paul faces a hearing in court as to why he was stirring trouble among the Jews. He tells the story on how he converted:

26:11 Many a time I went from one synagogue to another to have them punished (followers of Christ), and I tried to force them to blaspheme. I was so obsessed with persecuting them that I even hunted them down in foreign cities.

12 “On one of these journeys I was going to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests. 13 About noon, King Agrippa, as I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions. 14 We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic (Hebrew), ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’

15 “Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ “ ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied. 16‘Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. 17 I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them 18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

For following Christ (and corrupting Judaism), the Jews wanted Paul killed. Paul was sent to Rome on trial as a prisoner. Paul eventually arrives in Rome after a tumultuous journey on ship. He preaches at Rome under supervision:

28:18 They (Romans) examined me (Paul) and wanted to release me, because I was not guilty of any crime deserving death. 19 The Jews objected, so I was compelled to make an appeal to Caesar. I certainly did not intend to bring any charge against my own people. 20 For this reason I have asked to see you and talk with you. It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.”

Paul spoke of the ignorance of the Jews and their refusal in accepting Christ:

28:25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet:

26 “ ‘Go to this people and say, “You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”

27 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ [Isaiah 6:9-10]

28 “Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!”

[29 After he said this, the Jews left, arguing vigorously among themselves.]

NKJV version of 29 that NIV omits:

29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed and had a great dispute among themselves.

The Duped Goyim

The story of Acts is a lie not unlike the rest of the books of the New Testament. It was written by Jews to dupe the goyim. It is a work of incredible deception and trickery. It relies on the ignorance of their adherents to believe. The Apostles were all Jews and they were the ones we are told who conveyed the message of their God to the Gentiles. No Jew would ever take Christianity seriously. The God of the New Testament (Christian Bible) is a total contradiction of the God of the Old Testament (Jewish Bible). In the OT, God chooses only the Jews as his chosen people. This God is hateful and murderous and discriminates against all other non-Jewish groups of people. In the NT, this same God is loving and caring. He treats both the Jews and Gentiles equally. The duped Goyim who believes in Christianity, comes away thinking that the Jews are the same as the Gentiles and the only difference between them and us is that the Jews did not accept Christ. That’s it.

While the Gentiles have respect for the Jewish god, the other way around is not true. In the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is considered a traitor to God and his chosen Jewish people. Christianity simply cannot be taken seriously by Jews and will never be. Judaism is extremely strict on the worship of only one god and that is Yahweh. All other gods are false and the worship of Gentile gods is one of the worst sins in Judaism. Judaism is very strict on the worship of anything that has a human form. Yahweh has no human form and there are no images of him. Jesus was not only in a human form but at the same time he was both God and the son of God. The Trinity (God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit) refers to three gods in one.

What Christianity has done was destroy the ancient pagan religions of the Gentiles. The pagan beliefs connected the Gentiles with their past and their identity. Once that was destroyed, it was easier for the Jews to pacify, to enslave, and to control them.

Liberal and Conservative Countries

All the countries below I have visited except North Korea.


United States – The US is a highly liberal country though it is quite segregated. The segregation has more to do with income and social-economic status than mistrust among the races (though there is some of that). The whites have a much higher income and net worth than the blacks and Hispanics. The wealth disparity is among the highest in the developed world. The US is a melting pot of different races and different ideologies. It is highly atomized and divided along political and religious lines. America has much tolerance of devious behaviors though not as high as many Western European countries. Criminals in finance and Wall Street often do not get punished. In fact they are rewarded. Crony capitalism is tolerated to a very high degree. There is a strong religious ‘right’ element in the US, unlike that of any other Western country. Americans are probably more disconnected from reality than most other people on this planet. They have a poor perception of the outside world. Americans are extremely dependent on the government, the corporations, the banks, and the media. Americans have a poor sense of trust of one another and establishing deep friendships is difficult.

The Netherlands – The Netherlands is extremely liberal. They are among the least patriotic country in the world. Prostitution is legal as well as gay-marriages. The country has high tolerances for deviant and rebellious behaviors. Graffiti is everywhere in the country and the youths are heavily engaged in it. The vast majority of the Dutch rarely attend religious services. The Dutch are fairly social people and the sense of trust among fellow their Dutchmen is high. Knowledge of English is widespread and is among the best of countries where English is not the official language. The Dutch are very open minded people.

Thailand is fairly liberal for a developing country. The countryside is conservative but the cities are liberal. The official religion is Buddhism which is a highly liberal religion. The sex industry, which began in the 1970s during the Vietnam war, is huge. The country welcomes foreigners and ex-pats. Because of their liberal attitudes towards sex, Thailand attracts many devious male tourists, especially from Europe. Deviant behavior is tolerated from visitors because of the income they bring in.

Singapore is a highly developed Asian city-state. It is religiously diverse having almost equal representations of Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, and atheists. Singapore has a significant white minority, who are part of the large white collar workforce. Singapore imposes harsh punishment for crimes which earns it points for conservatism. Crime rates therefore are very low. Singapore is ranked high on economic liberties (ranking first on Heritage rankings) though discourages private ownership of automobiles through high taxes.

Cuba – The country is a multi-ethnic country made up of indigenous, whites, blacks, and mixed black/whites (Mulatto’s). Discrimination is almost non-existent and race-mixing is the norm. Purely white people are a small minority. The country is highly secular and few Cubans attend religious service on a regular basis. The state owns all private property and income is fixed regardless of occupation. There is absolutely no wealth disparity. Everybody is equally poor. From that standpoint, they are highly liberal. If there are conservative values it is that the Cubans act as one large family. It seems like everybody knows everybody. The sense of trust among Cubans is extremely high. Polarization is non-existent as there is nothing like politics or religion to split them apart. Superficiality is non-existent. Cubans know how to network like no others. They will pick each other up and look after each other. They pretty much have to do this in order to survive. Unlike many Latin American countries, crime rates in Cuba is very low. The punishment for crime is severe.


North Korea – I would classify North Korea as a mainly conservative country, though it is difficult to know what exactly is going on there. Korea was split after the War and the northern half (North Korea) was taken over by communist forces. The country is impoverished due to having almost no trading partners, thanks to the policies of the West. North Korea is almost entirely homogeneous and they have no plans to open their borders to outsiders. This alone would score points for conservatism. They have also closed their country to the outside world and made it very difficult for one to visit, let alone do business. Internet connectivity is limited to handful of people. Because of all this, there is little chance that the country can be corrupted by those on the outside looking in. They cannot be corrupted by capitalism, social media, the internet, and pornography. That is additional points for conservatism. North Korea has a nuclear weapons program, which acts as a deterrent against the powerful liberal regimes that want to annihilate or rearrange it’s politics.

Syria – Syria is a semi-conservative society. It is mainly Arab in population with a significant southeastern European minority. The sense of trust among Syrians is high, at least before the war. Despite the distorted media coverage of Syria, there is (or was) little polarization in the country even among the Muslims and Christians. Nationalism is high. Syria, like many Arab countries, is anti-Capitalist. Consumerism, usury, and speculative activities are highly frowned upon. Pornography and gambling is illegal. Those are highly conservative stances. On the other hand, Christianity and Islam, while solidifying the people, are liberal religions whose principles do not protect the adherents from infiltrators and deviant outside groups.

Israel – Israel is a semi-conservative society. Israel established itself as a safe haven for Jews around the world.

Israel has been a “democracy” since it’s establishment in 1948. Though a democracy, discrimination against non-Jews, especially against the Arabs, is rampant and heavily encouraged. The Israeli government continues to encroach on Palestinian territory by building settlements. The eventual plan is perhaps the eventual takeover of all of Palestine. The Israeli government makes it difficult for non-Jews to acquire citizenship. These are all conservative stances. Israel is one of the world’s most segregated society. Israel is religiously diverse, though rarely will different religious groups intermingle. Segregation is extreme. Though there are no laws in Israel against interracial marriages, few engage in those practices to begin with. Mistrust among the different groups are extreme, though Jew have more mistrust of the Arabs than the other way around. Jews are proud to be Jews and are encouraged to be proud of their race. Far-right groups such as the Lehava are tolerated, though not without criticisms. The Israeli media propagates tremendous amounts of paranoia and fear of Gentiles, particularly against the Arabs.

A 2008 poll by the Center Against Racism found that 75% of Israeli Jews would not live in a building with Arabs; over 60% would not invite Arabs to their homes; 40% believed that Arabs should be stripped of the right to vote; over 50% agreed that the State should encourage emigration of Arab citizens to other countries; 59% considered Arab culture primitive. Asked “What do you feel when you hear people speaking Arabic?” 31% said hate and 50% said fear. Only 19% reported positive or neutral feelings…

A Pew Research poll released in March 2016 showed that close to half of all Israeli Jews are in favor of “transferring or expelling” Israel’s Arab population. 48% of Israeli Jews strongly agree or agree with the idea, and 46% strongly disagree or disagree. The in-person polling was conducted in a relatively “calm” from late 2014 through early 2015…

In Palestine in Israeli School Books: Ideology and Propaganda in Education, Nurit Peled-Elhanan, a professor of language and education at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, describes the depiction of Arabs in Israeli schoolbooks as racist. She states that their only representation is as ‘refugees, primitive farmers and terrorists’, claiming that in “hundreds and hundreds” of books, not one photograph depicted an Arab as a “normal person”. – Wikipedia

In regards to Israel’s fervent religious right element, there are fears among the secular Jews that Israel will eventually become a theocracy. The orthodox and ultra-orthodox in their society has gained traction over the past decades. Secular Jews fear that because of the high birthrates of Haredic Jewish women (7 children on average), their power and influence will grow to the point where they will rule the country. The divide between the secular and the ultra-orthodox is high. The ultra-orthodox are staunchly conservative and there have been reports of harassment and violence not only against the Arabs but also against secular Jews. Seculars (Hiloni) favor separation of religion and state while the Haredi do not. Israel has been tilting more and more to the right in recent decades. Many orthodox Jews would like to see liberalism in Israel disappear altogether. Military service is a requirement for all except the Haredi and Arabs.

The only forms of gambling allowed in Israel are sports betting through the Israeli Sports Betting Board and the National Lottery. All other gambling is prohibited including casinos and slot machines.



Eilat was the final leg of my Israeli/Palestinian trip. It is a mainly Jewish city. In total spent four weeks in Israel and four weeks in Palestine. Eilat is the southernmost city in Israel and borders both Jordan and Egypt. I spent one night at a hostel before taking a taxi to the Egyptian border.




Leaving Israel and entering Egypt

I took a taxi from the border to Dahab, which is a chill red sea resort village. It was known as a vibrant backpacking community before the Arab Spring scared tourists away. It was actually my second time there. The last time being in the spring of 2011.

My taxi driver:



After Tiberius, I did a combination of hitchhiking and taxi back to Nazareth. Hitchhiking for some reason wasn’t as easy this time around, so I had to end up using taxis for the most part. I got back late, though the distance from those two points wasn’t very far. I spent a night back at the same hostel before doing a day trip to Haifa by bus.

Haifa is the most important city for those of the Baha’i faith, also an Abrahamic religion. Spent a few hours there.


The Jesus Trail

The Jesus Trail is a 65 km path from Nazareth to Tiberias. It was supposedly where Jesus walked during his ministry. This trail was not something I had planned to do until basically the last minute. I tend to do things on the go. My plans continuously changes. Me and a couple of German women from the hostel set off one morning. We left much of the stuff behind at the hostel and took just what we needed for a few days of adventure. We didn’t stick together and a hour into the trip we separated (but ended up at the same hostel in Galilee a couple days later). I cheated by hitchhiking about a third of it. The trail didn’t have many visitors. It passed through both Arab and Jewish enclaves. It was early November 2013 and warm and sunny.

Note: I do not use a diary and rarely write anything down. That’s how I travel. I go by memory and photos to refresh my memory.


Before I discuss the trail, here are some scenes of Nazareth:

Shop merchant near our hostel.

Church of the Annunciation. Reputed to be the site of the house of the Virgin Mary.

Awesome hostel where I stayed in Nazareth.

Arab-Christian women served as a tour guide of Nazareth from our hostel. Jewish women on the right. This part of town, which is entirely Arab, it is very rare for a Jewish person to visit. Jews have the pervasive fear of Arabs, with much of the fearmongering originating from the Israeli media, which of course is Jewish controlled. Nazareth is the only city in Israel of over 50,000 in population, where Arabs are the majority.


Day 1

We set off from Nazareth one late morning from our hostel. It is a large city and tricky to navigate out of. About 3 hours into the hike, I came across the town of Cana (Kafr Kanna). It is mainly an Arab-Muslim town with a large Christian minority. The famous Catholic church of Cana:

A group of Africans who made a pilgrimage to Cana and other holy sites in Israel:

Gift shop

About an hour later, I stumbled upon what looked like a small bed and breakfast in the same town. It was only early afternoon but the next cheap lodging may have been another several hours away on foot. An Arab man came out and greeted me. He seemed friendly enough so I decided to stay for the night. After I paid up, he stopped being friendly. I rarely saw him again. That’s the way it is I guess.

Day 2

I set out from Cana. Once out, I headed towards Kibbutz Lavi. The map above was the actual one I used for the hike. I didn’t purchase the map, but took a photo of it from a guide book at the bed and breakfast that morning. I hiked for a couple of hours. I came onto a major highway (77) and I decided to hitchhike to make up time as it was going to be a 30 km day. I couple of young friendly Israeli-Jews picked me up in no time. Now I don’t remember whether I hiked from the main road to a McDonald’s or I hiked from the McDonald’s to the next major area.

This McDonald’s was on the intersection of 77 and 65. Notice the pistol on women’s belt:

Right next to the McDonald’s was an Israeli military museum. It was a small museum and I believed I was the only visitor. I don’t even remember seeing any employees. It was free and you just right walk in.

As you can imagine there were tons of pro-Israeli propaganda.

Gaza War diorama.

Yom Kipper War

Second Lebanon War – 2006

Continuing on the hike …

Nabi Shu’ayb, probably the holiest place for those of the Druze faith, an Abrahamic religion.

A small Jewish agriculture community I passed through.

In the early evening I came across this little cabin, owned by a proud Israeli-Jewish lady. She was really genuine and friendly. I believe this was in the Arbel area. I did much hiking that day and was drained.

I spent the evening flipping through the TV channels. Israel carries a lot of American programs. The programs are with Hebrew subtitles and are not dubbed. There was no WiFi on premise and I did not have a smartphone. The owner did allow me to use her computer though.

Day 3

After a kosher breakfast, I continued on the hike. About 3 hours later, I came across the ruins of the ancient Arbel synagogue.

Some ancient cave dwellings.

From there I hiked to the main road about an hour or two away.

I walked a bit along the road before I hitchhiked to Capernaum, which probably saved me several hours of walking. The town is an important ancient Christian holy site.

That concluded the three day hike. I stayed in the Galilean town of Tiberius for a couple of nights at a hostel. I met the two German ladies from Nazareth there. We rented bikes the next day to see a kibbutz (next section) and the Jordan River site.

Jordan River baptism site:


I visited this kibbutz by the Sea of Galilee. This kibbutz is considered the mother of all kibbutz. It is the oldest socialist Zionist farming commune in Israel. I spent about an hour there.

Below are some bizarre things from that kibbutz.

An Israeli-Jewish family on tour.


Scenes of Bethlehem and vicinity. Bethlehem is located in the West Bank, Palestine and close to Jerusalem. It is right on the Israel border. Bethlehem is reputed to have been the birthplace of Jesus. It has the largest Christian population of any West Bank city. Arab Christians were 85 percent of the population in 1947. In modern times, the percentage has fallen below twenty. While the Christians and Muslims generally get along pretty well in Bethlehem, most Christians have emigrated because of the lack of economic opportunities and instability. The Christians are more likely than the Muslims to be middle class and better educated.


Manger Square

Jesus was said to be born here:
