NON-WISDOM FROM THE TALMUD … LIKE THE DONKEY, NON-JEWS WERE CREATED TO SERVE JEWS

“Non-Jews were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world-only to serve the People of Israel.”


Major rabbi  says non-Jews are donkeys,  created to serve Jews


A major Jewish religious figure in Israel has likened non-Jews to donkeys and beasts of burden,  saying  the main  reason for their very existence is to serve Jews.

Rabbi Ovadia  Yosef,  spiritual mentor of the religious  fundamentalist  party, Shas,  which represents Middle Eastern Jews, reportedly said during  a Sabbath homily earlier  this week that “the sole  purpose of non-Jews is to  serve Jews.”

Yosef is considered a major religious  leader in  Israel who enjoys the allegiance of hundreds of thousands of followers.

Shas is a  chief coalition partner in  the current Israeli government, Yosef, also a former Chief Rabbi of Israel,  was quoted by the right-wing newspaper, the Jerusalem  Post, as saying  that the basic function of a goy, a derogatory word for a gentile, was to serve Jews.

“Non-Jews were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world-only to serve the People of Israel,” Yosef said in his weekly Saturday night sermon which was devoted to laws regarding actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on the Sabbath.

Yosef also reportedly said that the lives of non-Jews in Israel are preserved by God  in order to prevent losses to Jews.

Yosef,  widely considered a prominent  Torah sage and authority on the interpretation of  Talmud, a basic Jewish scripture, held a comparison  between animals of burden and non-Jews.

“In Israel,  death has no dominion  over them…With gentiles, it  will be like any person-They need to die, but God will  give them  longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s  donkey would die, they’d lose their money.
“This is his servant…That’s why he  gets a long life,  to work  well for this Jew.”

Yosef further  elucidated his  ideas about the servitude of gentiles to Jews, asking “why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will  plow, they will reap; and  we will sit like an effendi and eat.”
“That is why gentiles were created.”

The concept of gentiles being infra-human beings or  quasi-animals is well-established in Orthodox Judaism.

Faced with the negative effect  of certain  Biblical and Talmudic teachings on inter-religious relations,  some Christian leaders in Europe have called on the Jewish religious establishment to reform the traditional  Halacha perceptions of  non-Jews.

However, while the Reform and Conservative sects of Judaism, have related  positively to such calls, most Orthodox Jews have totally rejected the calls, arguing  that the Bible is God’s word which can’t be altered under any circumstances.

The Bible says that non-Jews  living under  Jewish rule must serve as “water carriers and wood hewers” for the master  race.

In Joshua (9:27),  we read ” That day, Joshua made the Gibeonites woodcutters and water carriers for the community and for the altar of the Lord at the Place the Lord would choose. And that is what they are to this days.”

Elsewhere in the Bible, Israelites are strongly urged to treat “strangers living in your midst” humanely “because you yourselves were strangers in Egypt.”
