CRIME, FRAUD SOAR AMONG HASIDIC JEWS, PART 1-3
By Rev. Ted Pike

Earlier this month "slumlord" Hasidic Jewish rabbi Menachem Stark was kidnapped and murdered in New York City. The New York Post asked: "Who didn't want him dead?" This created a firestorm of protest from the Hasidic, Ultra-Orthodox community which esteemed him for his large donations to Jewish charities. It has also focused attention on crime and corruption in New York's large Hasidic community.
What are the origins of Hasidic Judaism? What does it teach? Do Hasidim’s religious beliefs incline them to disproportionate involvement in fraud and crime? These are questions I will consider in this three-part overview of the growing presence and power of Hasidic Judaism, particularly in New York City and bordering northeastern states.
For Orthodox Jews the greatest sources of religious authority are not the law and prophets of the Old Testament but the oral traditions of the Pharisees, contained in the vast and rambling Babylonian Talmud and its mystical/revolutionary companion, the Zohar, or "Kabbalah."
In the 8th century A.D., the central Eurasian nation of Khazaria converted to Judaism. At the height of its powers the Khazars ruled 30 nations in Eurasia, revealing even at that time strong genetic talents for organization, commerce, and leadership. By the 13th century, most of its roughly million Jewish proselytes had been driven west by invaders, primarily to Poland. (See Are "Jews" Really Khazars?) There, in the Middle Ages, such Ashkenazi "Jews" were fascinated with the mystical Kabbalah, an obsession that exceeded their devotion to the legalistic Talmud. They were flattered by the Zohar's teaching that Jews are semi-divine, qualitatively superior to the lowly "goyim," Gentiles. The Zohar told them Gentiles were animals, the spawn of demons in the form of men, saying, "They are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve." (Zohar I 28 b) This confirms the Talmud in Kethuboth 6 b: "You are thus called men but the goyim are not called men." Zohar says: "'Living soul' refers to Israel, who have living souls from above, and 'cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth' to the other people who are not 'living soul.'" (Zohar I 47 a) The Zohar commanded that Jews displace Gentiles in power and rule over them. "When God reveals Himself they will be wiped off the earth...Redemption will not be complete until Amalek [Gentiles] will be exterminated. . ." (Zohar I 25 b) When that is accomplished, "man [Israel] shall be unique in the world and ruler over all." (Zohar I 47 a)
As a result of dehumanization and even demonization of Gentiles by the highest scriptural authority for Hasidic Jews, they were free to prey upon Gentiles. The Talmud concurred: "It is permitted to deceive a goy." (Baba Kama 113b) Inflamed by Kabbalah's intoxicating message, powerful upwellings of kabbalistic aspiration for world control erupted in Poland and throughout Europe as early as the 17th century. In 1648 Shabbathai Zebi, a Turkish Jew, proclaimed himself the Messiah who would lead the Jews to dominate the nations. He failed, yet the Jewish Kabbalists only went underground, creating secret societies such as Freemasonry and Illuminism to undermine governments and corrupt the world. Eventually, such ferment stimulated communism and Jewish financial and media control. (See Jewish Activists Created Communism and Jews Confirm Big Media is Jewish)
As far as I understand, the Khazars are of the same ancestry of Esau whom the Lord hated. (The Curse of Canaan)
Probably also the offspring of serpents of whom the Lord told them that they were of "their father the devil."
Rev. 3:9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars--I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.
