Michael Hoffman's "Judaism Discovered From Its Own Texts" by Henry Makow, (Jan. 22, 2009)

"Judaism Discovered," Michael Hoffman's monumental new work on Judaism is subtitled, "A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit."

But, what does Hoffman really think of Judaism?

Michael HoffmanWe are in crisis. It's time we listened to plainspoken pariahs like Michael Hoffman. Anti-Semitism is on the rise and Hoffman's book explains why this is not irrational "hate." It's more important for Jews than anyone to learn that they are associated with a "religion" they don't really understand.

Two polls, one on August 9, 2007 and one on January 3, 2009, indicated a sharp growth of anti-Semitism in America. The August poll, conducted for the CIA-controlled RAND Corporation of Santa Monica showed 35% of the American public polled displayed moderate to strong anti-Semitic feelings while a similar poll in January of 2009 showed that percentage had jumped to 62%! This corresponds to the progress of the financial crisis. No doubt, Israel's genocidal attack on Gaza has contributed more. Look at one of the slick new anti-Jewish websites sprouting on the Internet like dandelions.

Many people serve as witting and unwitting agents of the central bankers' plan for world tyranny (the New World Order.) Collaboration is a criterion for "success" today. Increasingly, the NWO is called the"Jew World Order" because of the out-sized role Jews play. Most Jews are just trying to please their mother ("be successful dear") but it's time they learned they are part of a sinister force, and they may end up holding the bag.

Is the NWO driven primarily by the bankers' megalomania or by their adherence to a Jewish corporate agenda? Since many of the bankers are Cabalist Jews, the answer is probably both. The Jewish bankers have expanded their power base by co-opting the decadent gentile elite through intermarriage and Freemasonry (which is based on Jewish Cabalism.) This entity is a Satanic secret society called "The Illuminati Order."

Illuminati bankers are behind the recent financial collapse which is designed to facilitate political change. "Economic crises have been produced by us for the goyim by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation." -- (Protocols of Zion, 20) As Pastor Lindsey Williams said recently, long term, "these people are out to own and control everything...they are out to break us."


Hoffman's book is required reading for understanding the Satanic mindset driving both the Illuminati and New World Order.

Normally, a 1100-page book would be daunting. But not in this case."Judaism Discovered" is an encyclopedia in one volume consisting of more than 140 readable articles. The 10 x 7 inch format, large type and generous spacing make the book approachable. Consider it an opulent banquet. I haven't read it all yet.

Hoffman is a Talmudic adepts' worst nightmare. The goyim aren't supposed to learn this stuff. Ordinary Jews aren't supposed to know either. Hoffman has research assistants, some of whom are Jews, who read Hebrew, Yiddish, Aramaic and German. He is a brilliant scholar and an eloquent, courageous writer. He is clearly not motivated by "hate" but rather by a desire to disabuse both Jews and non-Jews. He sees them as victims of an ongoing scam.

A sample of article titles suggests the provocative theme and range:

The Superiority of the Jews
The Inferiority of the Gentiles
Sexual Intercourse with Little Girls is Permissible
Immanuel Kant
The X-Rated Talmud
Sex Magic
Ritual Murder
Hasidic Paganism
Modern Protestant View of Judaism
From Kaballah to Aggadah: A Sexual Progression
No "Judeo-Christian" Tradition
The Rabbinic World in the Pre-Modern Age
The Talmud in the Toilet
The Attire of the Pharisaic Male
Who are the Jews Today?
Rabbi Judah Loew and Queen Elizabeth's Dr. John Dee
US Gov't. Lays the Groundwork for Talmudic Courts


Judaism is a secret Satanic cult posing as a religion. Hoffman's main point is that Judaism represents the repudiation by the Pharisees of both the Old Testament and the Mosaic Code. Judaism is not Monotheistic but Luciferian. Its goal is the replacement of God with the secret Jewish leadership. Both the Talmud and the Cabala are dedicated to the proposition that only Jews are human. "The raison d'etre of the Talmud and Orthodox Judaism is the essential spiritual and racial superiority of the Judaic over the non-Judaic," Hoffman writes. This template has been transferred to the Illuminati elite.

I don't know why this information would offend Jews, most of whom consider themselves "secular humanists." Their Jewishness is cultural. They have contempt and even hatred for Orthodox Jews who return the compliment. However, a larger question is, to what extent is the pagan materialist secular culture dominant today a form of Judaism? Especially, when you consider the widespread acceptance of Cabala-based New Age beliefs (i.e. human divinity, pantheism, goddess & sex worship and the vogue of many other occult practices.)

There is so much in Hoffman's book I can only provide a taste. An essay on Moses Hess (1812-1875) suggests modern history and culture have been contrived by Cabalists to overthrow Christian civilization and enslave society. Hoffman shows how Hess' ideology was at the nexus of Communism, Nazism and Zionism and nurtured all three. In other words, Cabalists control mankind by controlling the Hegelian thesis and antithesis. With Communism, the Cabalist bankers attempted to take our country, property, family, race, religion and liberty (still the goals of the NWO.) The reaction to Communism was Nazism, and the reaction to Nazism was Zionism. All three Frankensteins were built in the same occult laboratory using common parts.

Tellingly, the Nazis did the rabbis' work by killing "unauthorized" opponents of Judaism like Edith Stein, Irene Nemirovsky and Maximilian Kolbe. (Hoffman, p. 650)

A true Christian, Hoffman says the way to stop the Hegelian dialectic is to stop fighting. In a timely reference to Zionist colonizers and Palestinian resisters, he writes that both groups of violent combatants"are mutually draining their enemy and themselves of blood, treasure and most damaging of all, their humanity, since this killing entails the dehumanization of the opposing force and the brutalization of one's own...No authentic Christian engages in this pagan, uroboros, victim-into-executioner cycle. Peace pays the greatest dividends. All you live by the sword die by the sword. (Mathew 26:52)." (86)


Our financial woes will expose the moral and political bankruptcy of Western Society. We will pay the price for our complacence, for allowing the Illuminati to seduce us and subvert all our institutions.

While Christian civilization was dedicated to the revelation of the Creator by obeying natural and spiritual (moral) laws governing human life, the New World Order replaces God's Will with the Illuminati bankers'. What is presented to us as "progressive" (e.g. sexual"liberation," the breakdown of gender identity, marriage and family) refers to progress toward Luciferian tyranny.

Michael Hoffman writes: "The core of Judaism, like the core of Gnosticism and Egyptian Hermeticism, is magic, the manipulation of the universe, contra God's creation; i.e. against nature. Gershom Scholem, Professor of Kabbalah at Hebrew University wrote that Kaballah embraced a great deal of "black magic, ...a wide realm of demonology and various forms of sorcery that were designed to disrupt the natural order of things..." (Hoffman, p.779.)

(I elaborate on this opposition to God and nature expressed by Jewish and now "modern" culture in my book "Illuminati.")

Babylonian and Egyptian paganism is the progenitor of Judaism, Hoffman writes. "The rabbis hold Egypt in awe as a magical powerhouse. Pharonic Egypt is the model, root and source for Talmudic and Kabalistic priestcraft." (780) This may explain the pyramid on the US dollar and in the logos of so many corporations.

Hoffman seems mindful of the Illuminati when he writes on his website that , "the evil should NOT be assigned to a particular people denominated as "Jewish," but rather to the spirituality and ideology of Pharisaic/rabbinic origin which can, and does, afflict any people who adhere to its tenets, be they Khazars or Sephardim, WASPs such as George W. Bush, or Germans such as the current Pope of Rome."

Modern history and culture reflect a Cabalistic (Satanic) spell cast on the human race. It is dedicated to the fulfillment of prophecy, the eventual enslavement of mankind by the "Jews" who in practice will be the crazed Illuminati Order. But Jews who have no clue about this demented plan will take the blame. That's why it is essential for Jews and non-Jews alike to understand the true nature of Judaism and oppose the NWO. In a spirit of Christian mercy and love, Michael Hoffman has performed an invaluable service to mankind.

Why Amazon banned Hoffman's book on Judaism
The Seventeen Words

Here below we are publishing for the first time, portions of our Aug. 3, 2008 letter to David Zapolsky, Vice-President and Associate General Counsel of, who banned our book, Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit.

According to, the book was banned for sale by Amazon on the basis of a complaint by Rabbi Shaul Praver. This is Amazon's allegation. We have proceeded based on the assumption that this allegation is substantive.

The following seventeen words attributed to Rabbi Praver appear on the back cover of Judaism Discovered:

"Shalom L'chovod Reb Michael: There is no question in my mind that you are a Talmid Chacham."

End quote. (A "Talmid Chacham" is a scholar respected for his learning, specifically, his knowledge of the Talmud).

Dear Mr. Zapolsky

...Rabbi Praver did indeed make the statement that this writer is a Talmid Chacham in an e-mail of June 5, 2004. His e-mail of June 5, 2004 was not marked private or confidential; nor did it in any other way convey or connote an understanding that it was private or confidential e-mail. It is therefore in the public domain.

As evidence, I have the original source of the transmission of his June 5, 2004 e-mail across the Internet, from Rabbi Praver's account to my own e-mail account, and I provided that evidence to's employee, Mr. Adrian Garver, on July 30, 2008.

Furthermore, in an e-mail to this writer of June 12, 2004, Rabbi Praver repeated his assessment that I was a "Talmid chacham."

You affirmed in your Aug. 3 e-mail the decision by's Adrian Garver, that because I quoted Praver's statement, will not sell the book which contains the statement.

You further state: "...In this case, as is obvious from the correspondence of both Mr. Garver and of Rabbi Praver, our decision to suspend sales has nothing to do with the content of your book. Rather, it stems entirely from the fact that an individual whom you claim endorsed your book alleges that the endorsement misstates or portrays his views in a false light."

I have never claimed that Rabbi Praver "endorsed" my book and you will not find any such claim anywhere in Judaism Discovered. The word "endorsement" is a term you have concocted. In fact, we published the statement that he made without comment of any kind.

I quoted Rabbi Praver accurately. That is a fact. Your opinion that the quotation "portrays his views in a false light" is hearsay, and what is more, it is partisan, in favor of the notion that Rabbi Praver's personal feelings should have greater weight than a book's right of freedom of press at Hence, sales of my book at have been obstructed.

Your claim that "intellectual property rights" are at issue here is a red herring. Praver did not copyright his correspondence. As noted, e-mail that does not bear a notice or other delcaration that it is private or confidential is public domain, and therefore we had the freedom of press right to make it public in the book Judaism Discovered.

You have suggested that you are are an objective judge of this case and that you support freedom of the press for controversial books, such as my work, which is critical of the religion of Judaism. Yet your decision, as well as the actions of in this case, contradict your rhetoric.

I have hundreds of quotations from rabbonim living and dead in the text of Judaism Discovered, extending from the era of the Ta'nnaim through contemporary responsa and the issur v'heter of contemporary poskim. With regard to my use of quotations from contemporaries, not all of it has been published before. Some of it is being published for the first time and is premised upon or derived from lecture notes, conversations recorded or reported, and yes, correspondence.

If each one of the rebbes among the living whom I quote is granted what has granted to Rabbi Praver, the option of exercising a veto power over my book based on their personal allegations regarding the truth, falsity, "good faith" or "bad light" of my citation of their statements, then a book as highly contested as mine will have no chance of ever being sold by

If this is actually Amazon's criteria for book-banning, then any person who feels they were misquoted or slighted by a book sold by can, by contacting, have sales of the offending book halted. In that case, thousands of the books Amazon sells can and in fact will be halted as soon as the many Christian clergymen and Muslim imams who believe they were misquoted or slighted by an author in a book sold by Amazon, contact Amazon to convey their grievances.

In fact, I do not believe that any such preposterous policy obtains at What I believe is that you have accorded special privileges to Mr. Praver that permit him to interdict a book of comparative religion that had previously been offered for sale by your company.

You dismiss my concerns as "nonsense." It seems to me that you are the one spouting nonsense by granting to Rabbi Praver the power to embargo Judaism Discovered because it contains the observation he made stating that I was a Talmid Chacham, and consequently, the publication of his statement supposedly portrays him in a "false light."

Does it really need to be pointed out that Rabbi Praver should not have the world's largest bookseller acting as his personal advocate...? If Rabbi Praver feels that the statement which he made, and for which he should be enough of a mensch to take responsibility for, is false or libelous, he should make his case before our courts here in Idaho, where the book was published.

Instead, he has sufficient clout that he can use to stop the sale of a highly controversial book which is deeply offensive to the religious sensibilities of Talmudists, based on his private ipse dixit.

I am sorry that you regard the legitimate concerns of an assailed author as "frankly offensive." I can assure you that there are tens of thousands of lovers of freedom of inquiry who will share this author's outrage over the fate of Judaism Discovered at Amazon.

It will also be patent le-chol mi she-yesh lo moach be-kodkodo, and to many informed readers as well, that the level of knowledge exhibited in the pages of Judaism Discovered is indeed indicative of an author who is a Talmid Chacham. Rabbi Praver in his 2004 correspondence only stated the obvious. Having made that statement of fact is, I think, to his credit. He should not be ashamed of it. He was far-sighted and astute enough to initiate a dialogue with this writer regarding my views of the Torah SheBeal Peh based on his stated perception of my level of knowledge.

I do not believe that someone of Rabbi Praver's stature would have initiated a lengthy correspondence with an am ha'aretz who couldn't make kiddush even if the text was in front of him....It was because he recognized that I was learned that he troubled to engage this writer in a dialogue to attempt to align my views in accordance with his own particular theology. I do not see how this portrays him in a bad light. He does besmirch himself however, when he attempts to use to evade the consequences of his statement. What is more egregious is that has made itself a party to his evasion by going so far as to ban a book so that a rabbi's wounded feelings can be assuaged.

I am putting you on notice, Mr. Zapolosky, that by your affirmation of Mr. Garver's ban on the sale of my book, it is you who is harming the reputation of Your ban on the sale of Judaism Discovered is a betrayal of Amazon's previous, well-deserved reputation as a bastion of freedom of inquiry and speech and I doubt very much that when the reading public learns that has issued to an author what amounts to a hazmana from a Beit din, that they will sit still for it.

On behalf of all marginalized, proscribed writers and apikorsim, I intend to publicize your contemptuous dismissal of my legitimate concerns, as well as's unjust and disgraceful ban on Judaism Discovered.

Michael Hoffman

End quote from the letter to Amazon executive David Zapolsky

At least one question remains: is Amazon's rationale for banning Judaism Discovered (seventeen offending words that supposedly make a rabbi look bad), actually just a pretext for keeping the highly revealing contents of the book away from the public, thereby preventing it from garnering a high sales ranking at Amazon, which could in turn lead to national publicity?
