SAMPLE TECHNIQUES OF TALMUD FALSIFICATION


The lists of falsified "quotes" from the Talmud that appear
on the websites neo-Nazis and other types of anti-Semites employ
several methods of falsification. Here are some examples:
(Quotes are enclosed on square brackets--my comments are in parentheses)

A. COMPLETELY FABRICATED QUOTE FROM REAL SOURCE

["A Jew is permitted to rape, cheat and perjure himself; but he must take care that he is not found out, so that Israel may not suffer." - Schulchan Aruch, Jore Dia.]

From: http://www.posse-comitatus.org/jewper.html


B. COMPLETELY FABRICATED QUOTE FROM IMAGINARY SOURCE

[4. Libbre David 37: "To communicate anything to a Goy about our
religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews,
for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly."]

From: http://www.scripturesforamerica.org/html2/jm0015.htm

C. OUT-OF-CONTEXT QUOTE

[In Babha Bathra (54 b) it says:
"All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first person
to come along and take them can claim them for his own."]

From: http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/talmud2.htm

(The Talmud is discussing a technical difficulty with taking posession
of land that was paid-for, as the omitted *next sentence* makes clear.)

D. WORDING ALTERED TO CHANGE MEANING

[17. "A Jew may do to a non-Jewess what he can do. He may treat her as he
treats a piece of meat." Hadarine, 20, B; Schulchan 9ruch,
Choszen Hamiszpat 348.]

From: http://www.whitestruggle.net/Talmudic_Quotations.html

(Notice the grabled names of the Talmud tractates. I guess it
is hard to copy something with a sheet over your head. Anyway,
Nedarim 20b really says "a man may do whatever he pleases with
his wife," i.e. he does not only have to use the missionary position.
So the whole bit about a "non-Jewess" is a fabrication. The sentence
about a "piece of meat" is a dishonest paraphrase masquerading as a
quotation. The Gemara goes on to give a parable that implies that just
as a butcher shop prepares meat in different ways, a man may use various
positions, etc. The idea is not to *treat someone* "like a piece of meat."
By the way, elsewhere the Rabbis place restrictions on what a man may do.
Sorry.)


E. OUT-OF-CONTEXT QUOTE WITH ALTERED WORDING

[BABA MECIA (114,6) - "The Jews are human beings, but the nations
of the world are not human beings, but beasts."]

From: http://www.radioislam.org/judaism/satank3.htm


(Here is an accurate translation:

R. Shimon b. Yochai said: Graves of non-Jews do not transmit
ritual impurity, as it is written, "And you, my flock, the flock
of my pasturs, you are Adam" (Ezekiel 34:31)--only you
are called "Adam."

Here is some explanation:

We learn the law of ritual impurity from another verse
that uses the word "Adam." "Only you are called 'Adam'"
means that the term "Adam"--"man"--in particular applies to
Jews. Other words, such as "Ha'adam"--"the man"--also
apply to non-Jews. So the Gemara is saying that the word
"Adam" without the definite article only refers to Jews.
Now you know the truth. This passage in the Talmud says
nothing at all about who is a human being. And besides that,
the supposed quote contains a completely fabricated sentence:
"They are beasts.")

F. MENDACIOUS PARAPHRASE

[Only Jews are human. [Gentiles] are animals. (Baba Mezia 114a-114b.)]

From: http://www.davidduke.com/index.php?p=136

(Variation of previous example. Note to Amigocabal: "Mendacious" means "lying")

G. NON-PROBLEMATIC LAW OR STATEMENT PASSED OFF AS SOMETHING NEGATIVE

[Shabbath 41a. The law regulating the rule for how to urinate in a holy way is given.]

From: http://www.hoffman-info.com/talmudtruth.html

H. ACCURATE QUOTE ACCOMPANIED BY FALSE STATEMENT AS TO WHAT IT MEANS

[3. MURDERERS
In Abhodah Zarah (22a) it says: "A Jew must not associate himself
with gentiles because they are given to the shedding of blood."]

From: http://www.talmudunmasked.com/chapter8.htm


(This is actually not quite an accurate quote because it forbids being
secluded, not merely associating, and the word "akum" is more
properly translated here as "idol worshipper." The example is included
here because it is part of a section of "The Talmud Unmasked"
entitled "What the Talmud Teaches About Christians." The statement
is *not* teaching that Christians in particular are suspected
of bloodshed. The various laws governing the interactions of Jews
with idol worshippers date from times when the Jews did indeed
live among people who were prone to bloodshed.)
