Do please excuse me for writing again. But I can’t help it.
Your beautiful article helps me. You mention ironies of history. And there is a book about a modern Jewish lie call The Hoax of the Twentieth Century. As I read over and again the first part of your article—concerning the mythos at the bottom of Western civilization—I think of a perhaps even greater hoax, and not a Jewish one, this time, but one whose fathers were perhaps even more contemptible than full-fledged Jews: the hotch-potch fraction of degenerate mankind that formed the first believers in the type of Christianity preached after the death of Jesus, by Saul-Paul, in the seaports of the Greek world: Thessaloniki, Corinth, Ephesus, etc. There were a mixture of decadent Greeks, Jews that had rejected their own race and tradition with all the “taboos” of the Mosaic Law, and cross-breeds of these with every variety of Mediterranean scum. I prefer a racially genuine Jew to that!
And it is to be noticed that the core of Jewry never accepted the stuff Paul-Saul preached: the stuff was beneath the true sons of Abraham—good enough for the “Goyim”—and useful merely inasmuch as it could, in the long run, help to keep the Goyim in perpetual spiritual slavery.
Did you ever hear of that erudite Frenchman Robert Ambelain?
If not, try to acquire, at any cost and by any means, his books on the origins of Christianity, publisher Robert Laffont, 6 place Saint-Sulpice, 75006 Paris. Those I possess are in New Delhi, with my friend (our friend Mlle. H—). I have re-ordered them here in France but up till now only got one: Les lourds secrets du Golgotha [The Weighty Secrets of Golgotha]. The two others, written in the seventies, are: Jésus, ou le mortel secret des Templiers [Jesus, or The Fatal Secret of the Templars] and La vie secrete de Saint Paul [The Secret Life of Saint Paul], and. There is a fourth one in the same series (“Les Enigmes de l’Univers” [The Mysteries of the Universe]) whose title I do not know, but which must be as passionately interesting as the three just mentioned.
Ambelain is—as far as I can tell—no Jew whatsoever but neither is he any of us—anything but. He is—like my long-deceased Aunt Nora, my mother’s elder sister, an admirer of the Jews, but not for the same reason as she. In her eyes they were “God’s own people” destined to rule the world from Jerusalem after the second coming of Jesus and the Last Judgment. This was to her “Bible truth” and I, as a child, was to read to her a chapter of the old and a chapter of the New Testament, and not make any comments of my own—not “discuss with my Maker.” The result was that she made me hate this precious “God’s own people” and their “Jealous God” along with them. Ambelain just likes the monotheistic idea and is moved by the Jewish struggle against Rome. While I am on the Roman side decidedly, he goes and dedicates one of his books “To the dead of Masada”—the last spot of Jewish resistance (in 73 AD), i.e., three years after the fall of Jerusalem (and there are more risings even after that, the last under Emperor Hadrian (132 AD which ended in 135).
But that has naught to do with Ambelain’s scholarship and informative genuineness.
To him Jesus (Yeshuah) is the eldest son of Judah of Gamala, son of Ezekias, and like he, a leader of Jewish resistance against Rome, no spiritual leader of mankind at all. Nazareth did not exist until the 8th century AD. And Joseph is a convenient myth, to push into oblivion Jesus’ real father, at a time when Paul’s type of Christianity had conquered the Roman State. The Gospels accepted today were all written in the 4th and 5th centuries AD.
Paul, says Ambelaim—and he proves it—though a perfect Semite, was no Jew, but a member of the large Herodian stock—a grandson of Herod “the Great” and one who acquired his “Roman Citizenship” through that pro-Roman Idumean family. He made up his (successful) brand of Christianity out of bits and pieces from various older mystery creeds of the near East (and Ambelain proves that also!).
According to Ambelain, Jesus and Juda of Gamala (or Galilee) and [Jesus’] grandfather are all genuine descendants of David, the 11th century BC king of the Jews, claiming against Rome freedom for Palestine and restoration to power of the dynasty of David. The Crucifixion, just one among many executions of “résistants”—political opponents to their rule, and the “Resurrection”—the appearing before Jesus’s followers of . . . his twin brother (Thomas, in Hebrew taoma, plural taomim, means “twin”).
And there are many more things explained in those scholarly books by one well-versed in Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, and History of the Near East and of Rome and Greece.
It took 400 years to make the decadent mixed people of the Empire to pin their faith in a genuine Jewish “maquisard” [guerilla], interested only in his own people, and take him to be “the Lamb of God sacrificing himself for the sins of mankind.” The Jews themselves were much too cunning to believe the story. So were the genuine Greeks (see how the Athenians laughed at Saul-Paul, Chapter 17, Acts of the Apostles). So were the proud and beautiful people of North Europe. They were forced into it and kept throughout history the uncomfortable feeling of inner contradiction—to this day. Read Gustav Frenssen’s Der Glaube der Nordmark.
I am glad the hard core of our faith—the most thoughtful among us—have always been untouched by the hoax, personally already living in the coming Hitler order.
What an uplifting feeling!
With warmest regards,
