Please Note: On this page I may show the four letter blessed *“Memorial Name” of the Almighty in Ivrit -  - Y-H-V-H, which we usually pronounce as “Adonai” or “HaShem. At all times treat the most blessed Name with sanctity and when we even see the Name, we should say “blessed be His Sanctified Name.”


*This is My Name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.” Shemot - Exodus 3:15.


On this site I will mostly use a version based on the “Jewish Publication Society” Tanakh (JPS)

A Brief Introduction:

On this page I will cover something that is nothing short of tragic, for it is about something that happened on October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther marched up to the Castle church in Wittenberg and nailed his 95 Thesis to the door, thus commencing the Reformation. However, it is what this man became and ended up writing that would have an everlasting effect on B’Nei Yisroel, the Children of Israel, for believe me, he was one of the most evil men in history and in many ways we will never forget the consequences’ of what he did, not just in his book, but by having his followers act in the most evil of ways towards the Jewish population in those days!

You may ask; “what was the name of his book?”

“Of the Jews and their lies”

Von den Juden und ihren lügen


By Martin Luther (1483 - 1546)


Written by him in 1543

Part One:

The Evil of Martin Luther as found in his book …

In 1543, Martin Luther vented his hatred for the Jewish people when he circulated his book entitled “Von den Juden und ihren Lügen” wherein he heaped monstrous accusations against our People.

In his book, he expressed his opinion and he called us, “venomous and virulent”, “thieves and brigands” and “disgusting vermin” and he strongly encouraged the christian princes to take the following action;

Their Synagogues should be set on fire and whatever does not burn up should be covered or spread over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or stone of it”.

He urged that “Jewish homes” be “broken down and destroyed” and that the …

Jews should then be placed under one roof, or in a stable like Gypsies, in order that they may realise that they are not masters in our land”.

Luther Continued …

These poisonous worms should be driven out of the country for all time like mad dogs”.

Many of the Protestant rulers of the times relied on Luther’s political advice, and through his maniacal tirades against the Children of Israel resulted in the expulsion of all Jews from Saxony in 1543.

Please Note: At the conclusion of this page there is a link to Page Two containing a copy of this evil book in full.

This wicked man wrote something that had immediate action, and thus our people were severely hunted and badly hurt and our Synagogues destroyed by fires, and much worse. But, this evil spewed out by him, would have a long lasting effect as we are about to find out.

Part Two:

Then 377 years after Luther had published his evil book, it was being read by a certain person, who simply loved its contents, so much so that in 1920, this young lecturer gave a powerful and impassioned address entitled; “Why we are against the Jews.” The name of this young speaker was none other than Adolph Hitler. He declared;

“It is the German duty to arouse, whip up and incite the instinctive repugnance of the Jews to even a higher pitch.”

The political party that Hitler would control attracted masses of like-minded evil Germans. The Nazis set themselves the task to cleanse Germany and to restore the supremacy of the Aryan race and rescue the German, Teutonic peoples from the “cancerous species of Jews and any other non-Aryan subcultures”.

Hatred was the main feature of Hitler’s programme, hatred of the Jews, hatred of Slavs, Gypsies, and all the so-called inferior people. Even the mentally ill and physically handicapped were loathed and were doomed for extermination. Millions cheered Hitler as he promised to make Germany great again. They also cheered when Hitler quoted Luther’s book “Of the Jews and their Lies” during his radio addresses and promised to drive “the disgusting vermin, the Jews, out of existence for all time like mad dogs”. He wasted no time in carrying out his evil programme of hatred, just as Luther proclaimed and did back in 1543.

Inconsistency and violence characterised Luther’s utterances in most fields, but perhaps in none with more disastrous consequences than in his statements regarding our people. Due to his vituperative anti-Jewish polemics, the Lutheran Church, unlike that which owed its foundation to John Calvin, retained all the superstitious abhorrence of the Children of Israel, which they inherited from the medieval Roman Catholic Church, who, like many christian denominations, continues to proclaim that (we) “the Jews killed Christ,” thus we were completely responsible for it. This evil christian lie was again highlighted in the disgusting Mel Gibson’s movie, “The Passion of Christ.”

The tragedy is there are those in the world, who even claim themselves to be christians, that continue the evil, applauding Luther and Hitler and right now around the world there are ultra right wing Nazi organisations in your city and they continue to loath us and love their greatest hero - Hitler.

But let me tell you that there is a powerful warning to them all who come against B’Nei Yisroel, and it is found in the smallest Book of the Tanakh Ovadyah - Obadiah Chapter that has just one powerful chapter! In it there is a statement that says …

“For the day of  is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, so it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head” verse 15 (JPS version of the Tanakh).

Alternatively, we could also read it like this … “What you sow you will reap.

But in conclusion, I must say the following, I do know for a fact that there are certainly good and genuine Christians who fully believe and follow their Bible who fully acknowledge the Children of Israel according to the Tanakh (OT) and the State of Israel, and they reject anti-Semitism in all of its evil forms! I have personally met many of these wonderful people when in Europe many times during the 1980 and 1990’s, and countless of these wonderful folk have hidden and rescued many of our people in their homes during WW2 and led them to safety, alternatively they were sadly caught and they were cruelly murdered for being such good and faithful people, I know that Elohim will richly bless them! And we should never forget these good people!

Please remember our motto seen on the logo at the top of this page: “The More Torah, the More Life”, for  Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, is the one who gave us Life!
