I have always been perplexed about the nature of Judaism itself, and about its true origins. I have long come to the conclusion that we are dealing with a group of people who's entire past is nothing more than a myth and a massive fraud.
For this article, I want to present the following very interesting article that comes from the website: "The Way Of The Rabbi", at www.jesusneverexisted.com. It is entitled: "The Myth Of The Jewish 'Race'", and it gives some very startling revelations about the truth about the history of those who call themselves "Jews", and presents clear evidence that these people have no past and are nothing more than frauds. I have that article right here for everyone to see for themselves, and I do have my own comments and thoughts to follow:
"Thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite."– Ezekiel, 16.17.
The Jews claim themselves to be a race – but are they?
The earliest reference yet found to this singular people is on a statue from the Syrian city of Alalakh, dated to about 1550 BC. The inscription refers to hapiru warriors in the land of Kin’anu – a presence confirmed by clay tablets from Akhenaten’s capital of Amarna, referring to marauders in the hill country of Palestine. The famous stele of Pharaoh Merneptah dated to 1207 BC records 'Israel is laid waste, his seed is not’. 'Israel' here is a reference to a people, not a territory.
But we have a story, a tale of tribal fidelity – with frequent, and instructive, lapses – to a protector god Yahweh, who had chosen this ‘people’ as his very own. For them, he has a divine purpose. In particular, their migration into Canaan is given an heroic re-interpretation. No longer do we have piecemeal migration over centuries but a single glorious conquest by a cohesive people. The ‘idolatrous’ city dwellers (of ‘Jericho’, etc.) get their comeuppance and the whole land is promised to the Jews in perpetuity. They have, it would seem, arrived as a single group from Egypt, released from slavery by divine intervention.
The extraordinary thing about this ‘history’ - complete with verbatim dialogue between man and god - is that it was not written until more than a thousand years after the supposed events.
"The first millennium of Jewish history as presented in the Bible has no empirical foundation whatsoever."
– Cantor, The Sacred Chain, p 51.
The impressive race history, tracing the Jews (the people of Judah), back through Hebrews in Canaan and Israelites in Egypt, to a noble ancestor called Abraham (father, it seems, of all the races, including Greeks and Arabs!), and the whole melodramatic story of the Exodus, was concocted at a much later date, after the tribal leadership of these Judaean tribesmen had been taken into exile and had learned the rudiments of civilization from their Babylonian captors. This was not at the dawn of time but in the seventh century BC, when Greece was already a civilization and Carthage had a maritime empire.
"Lachish Letters" – only first hand 'evidence' for the entire corpus of the Old Testament
A Few Bits of Crockery
"They have entered the land to lay waste ... strong is he who has come down. He lays waste."
The Lachish Letters (British Museum) – a collection of 21 pottery shards or 'ostraca'.
The letters are from outposts of Lachish to the city's military commander (a man named Ya'osh) and represent field reports monitoring the situation as the armies of Nebuchadnezzar closed in.
Some writers find confirmation of the biblical 'Jeremiah' in these scraps (Letter XVI to be precise) though the reference could equally well have been to a 'Urijah'.

NTS Notes: As I have explained in previous articles, we are dealing with a people that base their entire history on nothing more than lies and falsehoods. The facts are that there never was an "Exodus", or a "Passover" or even any "Solomon's Temple". All those lies from their fraudulent Torah are nothing more than inventions by their scribes sometime in the 7th-8th centuries BC.
Today, we have these people going around and still calling themselves the "Chosen People" of their false god "Yahweh", when in fact, they have no real history at all. Modern archaeology in the region of Palestine and Egypt has found no physical evidence of any of their biblical claims. The fact is that there is none and there never was.
I therefore again question how these so called "Chosen Ones" can continue to claim their rights to the land of Palestine through their fraudulent Bible/Torah writings, and continue stealing the land from the people that have the real rights to the region, the Palestinians themselves? Modern research now shows that they have no "biblical" rights to that land at all!
More to come
