Al Gore:

Happy Education Day, Rabbi Schneerson!

The United States Congress and the six most recent presidents (Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton) have been proclaiming an "Education Day USA" each spring.  Having read a few of these proclamations, however, I wonder if a better name for the day would not be "Happy Birthday Rabbi Schneerson Day."  Here, to take one of many similar examples, is the Proclamation of President Ronald Reagan in 1985:

Public Papers of the Presidents

April 4, 1985

CITE: 1985 Pub. Papers
LENGTH: 365 words
HEADLINE: Education Day, U.S.A., 1985
HIGHLIGHT: Proclamation 5317.
BODY: By the President of the United States of America

A proclamation

In order to achieve its highest goals, education must be more than just a training in facts and figures, or even in basic skills, as important as they are.  It must also include instruction in the deepest ethical values of our civilization.

Very few Americans have done more to promote these ethical values as the basis of civilization than Rabbi Mendel Schneerson, the leader of the worldwide Lubavitch movement.  The word "Lubavitch" comes from the name of a Russian city and means city of love.  That is very appropriate because, of all the ethical values which inform our civilization, none is more important than love of wisdom, love of our fellowman, and love of our Creator.

These are the values which Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson exemplifies.  And they are the values, with their roots in the Seven Noahide Laws, which have guided the Lubavitch movement throughout its history.  They are the essence of education at its best, and we should be certain that we pass on this precious heritage to all young Americans.

In recognition of Rabbi Schneerson's contributions and in honor of his 83rd birthday, which falls this year on April 2, the Congress, by House Joint Resolution 186, has designated April 2, 1985, as "Education Day, U.S.A." and authorized and requested the President to issue an appropriate proclamation in observance of this event.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, April 2, 1985, as Education Day, U.S.A., and I call upon the people of the United States, and in particular our teachers and other educational leaders, to observe that day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this fourth day of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and ninth.

Ronald Reagan

Those not inhibited by false modesty are able to paint Rabbi Schneerson in less muted tones:

In our generation, the spiritual leader of the Jewish people and therefore of the whole world is Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (known as the "Lubavitcher Rebbe"), in New York.  He is a righteous prophet who has never sinned, nor even been tempted, in his entire life; indeed, he has brought hundreds of thousands of Jews and gentiles back to the Law.  Moreover, he is a direct descendant of King David.

Returning to reality, we may say that Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson was born in the Southern-Ukrainian town of Nikolayiv on 14-Apr-1902 (though different accounts give different dates, 28-March and 18-April being two leading contenders, on top of President Reagan's 02-April "this year" above; and of course most reports have him being born in the Russian town of Nikolaev).  After spending time in Germany and France, Rabbi Schneerson emigrated to the United States in 1941.  Having married the daughter of the previous Lubavitcher Rabbi (head of the Habad, or Chabad, Hasidic sect known as the Lubavitchers), Rabbi Schneerson in his turn assumed that post.  Rabbi Schneerson suffered a stroke in 1992, died in 1994, and was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal shortly thereafter by unanimous consent of both houses for his "outstanding and lasting contributions toward improvements in world education, morality, and acts of charity."

What Israel Shahak Tells Us
About Rabbi Schneerson

However, evaluations of Rabbi Schneerson's contribution are not always as overwhelmingly positive as we have seen above, as is exemplified in the writings of Israel Shahak:

My final, more general example is, if possible, even more shocking than the others.  It concerns the attitude of the Hassidic movement toward non-Jews.  Hassidism a continuation (and debasement!) of Jewish mysticism is still a living movement, with hundreds of thousands of active adherents who are fanatically devoted to their "holy rabbis," some of whom have acquired a very considerable political influence in Israel, among the leaders of most parties and even more so in the higher echelons of the army.

What, then, are the views of this movement concerning non-Jews?  As an example, let us take the famous Hatanya, fundamental book of the Habbad movement, one of the most important branches of Hassidism.  According to this book, all non-Jews are totally satanic creatures "in whom there is absolutely nothing good."  Even a non-Jewish embryo is qualitatively different from a Jewish one.  The very existence of a non-Jew is "inessential," whereas all of creation was created solely for the sake of the Jews.

This book is circulated in countless editions, and its ideas are further propagated in the numerous "discourses" of the rabbi, M. M. Schneurssohn, who leads this powerful world-wide organisation from his New York headquarters.  In Israel these ideas are widely disseminated among the public at large, in the schools and in the army.  (According to the testimony of Shulamit Aloni, Member of the Knesset, this Habbad propaganda was particularly stepped up before Israel's invasion of Lebanon in March 1978, in order to induce military doctors and nurses to withhold medical help from "Gentile wounded."  This Nazi-like advice did not refer specifically to Arabs or Palestinians, but simply to "Gentiles," goyim.)  A former Israeli President, Shazar, was an ardent adherent of Habbad, and many top Israeli and American politicians headed by Prime Minister Begin publicly courted and supported it.  This, in spite of the considerable unpopularity of the Lubavitcher rabbi in Israel he is widely criticised because he refuses to come to the Holy Land even for a visit and keeps himself in New York for obscure messianic reasons, while in New York his anti-Black attitude is notorious.

The fact that, despite these pragmatic difficulties, Habbad can be publicly supported by so many top political figures owes much to the thoroughly disingenuous and misleading treatment by almost all scholars who have written about the Hassidic movement and its Habbad branch.  This applies particularly to all who have written or are writing about it in English.  They suppress the glaring evidence of the old Hassidic texts as well as the latter-day political implications that follow from them, which stare in the face of even a casual reader of the Israeli Hebrew press, in whose pages the Lubavitcher rabbi and other Hassidic leaders constantly publish the most rabid bloodthirsty statements and exhortations against all Arabs.

A chief deceiver in this case, and a good example of the power of deception, was Martin Buber.  His numerous works eulogising the whole Hassidic movement (including Habbad) never so much as hint at the real doctrines of Hassidism concerning non-Jews.  The crime of deception is all the greater in view of the fact that Buber's eulogies of Hassidism were first published in German during the period of the rise of German nationalism and the accession of Nazism to power.  But while ostensibly opposing Nazism, Buber glorified a movement holding and actually teaching doctrines about non-Jews not unlike the Nazi doctrines about Jews.  One could of course argue that the Hassidic Jews of seventy or fifty years ago were the victims, and a "white lie" favouring a victim is excusable.  But the consequences of deception are incalculable.  Buber's works were translated into Hebrew, were made a powerful element of the Hebrew education in Israel, have greatly increased the power of the blood-thirsty Hassidic leaders, and have thus been an important factor in the rise of Israeli chauvinism and hate of all non-Jews.  If we think of the many human beings who died of their wounds because Israeli army nurses, incited by Hassidic propaganda, refused to tend them, then a heavy onus for their blood lies on the head of Martin Buber.
Israel Shahak, Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years, Pluto Press, London and Boulder Colorado, 1994, pp. 26-28.

In Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky's book Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel (Pluto Press, 1999, pp. 58-62), Rabbi Schneerson is cited as teaching that:
  • Jews and non-Jews are of an entirely different species.
  • A non-Jew should be punished by death if he kills an embryo, even if the embryo is non-Jewish, while the Jew should not be, even if the embryo is Jewish.
  • Two kinds of souls exist all non-Jewish souls originate from one of three satanic spheres, whereas Jewish souls originate from holiness.
  • The universe was created for the sake of Jews, and the role of all non-Jews is to serve Jews.
Also cited by Shahak and Mezvinsky was that Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh, a leading member of the Habad Hasids, proposed that if a Jew needs a liver, it is permissible to take the life of an innocent non-Jew to obtain that liver.  "Jewish life has an infinite value," he explains.  Among those who have been inspired by Rabbis Schneerson and Ginsburgh has been Dr. Baruch Goldstein who slaughtered 29 Palestinian men and boys while they knelt in prayer in the Ibrahimi Mosque at Hebron's Machpela Cave, on Purim 1994, Purim being the Jewish celebration of vengeance against non-Jews:

The Goldstein massacre [...] was inadequately covered in the English press.  That Israeli Jewish society was divided in its attitude towards the massacre was evident in the Hebrew but not in the English press and literature.  Before the massacre, Goldstein's refusal as a doctor on religious grounds to treat non-Jewish patients, including soldiers serving with him in the army, was, although mentioned briefly, treated lightly in the English coverage.  Goldstein clearly derived his views from fundamentalist interpretations of sacred Hebrew texts.  [...]  Having immigrated to Israel as an adult, Goldstein, prior to his arrival in Israel, had been influenced by the "Lubovitcher Rebbe" and his influential disciple, Rabbi Ginsburgh.
Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky, Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel, Pluto Press, London and Sterling Virginia, 1999, pp. 159-160.

Skimming through the writings of Rabbi Schneerson that have been made available on the Internet readily confirms that he perceives a radical superiority of Jews over non-Jews, a confirmation that is surprising in view of the expectation that his Internet writings would have been sanitized.  Rabbi Schneerson below is commenting on the strategy of getting non-Jews to submit to the Seven Noahide Laws that we saw President Reagan commending above:

The Seven Laws must be explained in a way that the nations can relate to and, because non-Jews do not possess genuine free will, they will be willing to change more quickly and easily than a Jew.

What About Those Seven Noahide Laws?

Frequently commended in Presidential proclamations of Education Day are the Seven Noahide (in some of the quoted material below, spelled "Noachide") Laws, as instanced in President Reagan's proclamation above.  That the average American has never heard of these laws is not surprising they originate in the Babylonian Talmud, and make no appearance in the old or new testaments of the Bible.

A question that arises upon hearing of these Noahide laws is why given that he feels compelled to interject religious injunctions on Education Day the American President does not prefer to urge Americans to follow the Ten Commandments, which are a later and more comprehensive version of the earlier Seven Noahide Laws, and which Ten Commandments bring the advantage of being widely known and broadly accessible?

The explanation of this puzzle is startling.  In fact, it could not be more startling.  The explanation is that the Habad Hasids have a goal, and the puzzling things that we see happening are the signs of their progress toward that goal.  The goal of the Habad Hasids, as announced by themselves, and as I will demonstrate below through direct quotations, and as can be verified by anyone who has access to the Internet, is as follows and I advise you to hold on to your seat before reading on.

The Habad Hasids have a plan to conquer the world and to set up rabbinical rule in every country.  They recognize that by themselves they do not have the manpower to execute this plan, and so are in the process of conscripting a vast army of non-Jews to help them.  The members of this non-Jewish army of helpers are called the Noahides, or the Children of Noah.  They consist mainly of disaffected and apostate Christians searching for religious guidance in an age of disintegrating Christianity.  The Noahide Laws are the laws that the Habad Hasids ask these helpers to obey.  Foremost among these Seven Noahide Laws is the renunciation of Christianity, and indeed of any religion other than Orthodox Judaism.  The educational activities of the Lubavitchers which are annually commemorated by American Presidents consist mainly in luring non-Jews into playing the role of Noahide helpers, which requires as an initial step their renunciation of Christianity.

Below follows the Noahide program in greater detail, and from the mouths of the Habad Hasids themselves:

The Seven Noahide Laws are in reality seven topic headings

One might expect that the Seven Noahide laws would go something like, "Honor thy father and thy mother, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal," and so on.  However, I have been unable to locate any such listing.  All I can find is listings of topic headings of Talmudic subjects, as for example:

Noachide Laws, seven laws, given to Noah, considered by rabbis as incumbent on all men without exception: prohibition of idolatry, blasphemy, bloodshed, sexual sin, theft, eating limb torn from animal while living, and instruction to establish legal system.
Geoffrey Wigoder (Ed.), Encyclopedic Dictionary of Judaica, Leon Amiel, New York and Paris, also Keter Publishing House, Jerusalem, 1974, p. 455.

Every society in existence places limits on sexual activity, and in this sense provides its own definition of "sexual sin," so that merely being told that the Noahide Laws forbid sexual sin tells us nothing.  Undoubtedly there are extensive Talmudic definitions of sexual sin that are being referred to, which is why I consider the two words "sexual sin" to be a topic heading and not a law.  The same goes for "instruction to establish a legal system" these six words are not a law that any Noahide initiate will find himself able to obey; rather, they make reference to hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of Talmudic writing as to the nature of the legal system that should be established.  Similar observations can be made on all items in Wigoder's list of seven above.

Alternative depictions of the Seven Noahide Laws (as at www.noahide.com/7laws.htm) similarly lead to the conclusion that we are being supplied with no more than topic headings, and any elaborative statements that may be made under each topic heading are vague, and hint at more concrete original Talmudic writings which are not being disclosed.

Seven occasionally proliferates into 30, or even 66

As might be expected when dealing with broad topic headings, these can be subdivided so that sometimes the number of Noahide Laws is considered to be not merely seven, but 30, or even 66, as can be seen on the Noahide web site at www.noahide.com/lawslist.htm.

Scanning these more extensive lists, the typical American must be seized with unease, and occasionally with outright trepidation.  (Square-bracketed material below was in the original.)

  • Some of the Noahide laws are mysterious: "Against practicing Ov."  "Against practicing Yiddoni."  "Against causing our children to pass [through the fire] in the worship of Molech."

  • Some proscribe thought crimes: "Against entertaining the thought that there exists a deity except Hashem."  "Against desiring."

  • Some seem to define the powers of the rabbis, rather than laws that are to be followed by the people, and these rabbinical powers violate the separation of church and state, and which if implemented would turn America into a theocracy: "To appoint judges and officers in each and every community."

  • Some prescribe procedures that are alien to American culture, as execution by beheading, or the necessity of animal sacrifice: "That the court is to administer the death penalty by the sword [i.e., decapitation]."  "To offer ritual sacrifices."

  • Some would have such rare application that they seem inappropriate to include in a short list of the most important laws: "Against eating a limb severed from a living animal, beast, or fowl."

  • Some are out of whack with deeply-entrenched Western practices: "Formal marriages via bride price & marriage gifts."

  • Some would turn back the clock in the evolution of farm animals and pets: "Not to crossbreed animals."

  • Some offer excessive detail concerning topics of trivial importance, such as how many grapes a migrant picker should be allowed to eat:
    "A laborer shall be allowed to eat of the fruits among which he works [under certain conditions]."
    "Against a laborer eating of such fruit [when certain conditions are not met]."
    "Against a laborer taking of such fruit home."

  • Some would prove difficult to enforce in contemporary America: "Against engaging in erotic conduct that may lead to a prohibited union.  [That is, petting by persons whose marriage would be illicit.]"

In other words, adoption of the Noahide Laws must lead to pretty much what one would expect from the exercise of taking the religious laws of an ancient people and attempting to apply them to a modern society wholesale irrelevance and absolute impracticability.

The Noahide Laws may have to be imposed by force

The only way such laws could be imposed on the American people is by force, perhaps the sort of brute force that one sees Israelis applying today to Palestinians, a prospect that the Lubavitcher Rabbi has already anticipated, with the softening afterthoughts being added, as below, to public versions of his anticipation so as to avoid causing alarm:

Aren't we busy enough working with Jews? Can we really afford to divert time and money to the campaign to transform the gentiles?
[T]he Rambam uses the expression, "lakuf ("to forcefully influence") all inhabitants of the world to accept the Noachide commands."  Although obviously one must do this in a pleasant, gentle, and peaceful way, it still must be done with persistence.  If you have already tried several times, try again nevertheless.  We frequently see that although people are sometimes spoken to five times, they do not change until they hear it a sixth time!
Purim, 5747, Sichos in English, vol. 35, p. 4.
www.noahide.com/rebbe.htm (underlining and square-bracketed material is in the original; the answer having nothing to do with the question is not atypical of Lubavitcher writing)

Idolatry is the greatest sin

One thing that is abundantly clear about the Noahide Laws is their emphasis on the prohibition of idolatry an emphasis which is evident in the idolatry law being placed in first position, and in the idolatry law being related to the blasphemy law which is accorded second position.  It is on the question of idolatry that the Noahide Laws are most revealing.

What is the idolatry that the Noahide helpers must avoid?  The answer is that idolatry is primarily Christianity, but also every religion other than Judaism.

Encouraging the abandonment of Christianity: "...according to the known Jewish legal ruling that Christians are idol worshippers."
Likutei Sichos 37:198, from a letter of the Rebbe dated 26 Iyra, 5726, cited in Kol Boi HaOlam, p. 389.

A Universal Prayer

"Children of Noah"

Rules of Effective Prayer
for People of All National
and Ethnic Backgrounds,
Based on the Word of G-d
as Preserved in
the Jewish Tradition

by Boruch Ellison


Unless otherwise impossible, the prayer should be given indoors, facing a wall with no mirrors, pictures, or other potentially idolatrous images; it goes without saying that one should never pray towards a statue of any kind (some seemingly innocent statues and figurines are considered idolatrous by Torah, and one must learn the rules to avoid accidentally owning idols or their equivalents).  Christian crosses, of course, are absolutely out of the question.

Noachides may not observe any religious holidays outside the rabbinical traditions of Torah most especially including such Christian holidays as X-mas, Easter, Halloween, All Saint's Day, Good Friday, Ash Wednesday, and probably even the "new year" (January 1st).  Alien religious holidays are forbidden even under the minimum of the Noachide code; these are violations of the commandment against idolatry.

Instead, Noachides should commemorate at least the following holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Sukkos, the 19th of Kislev (the chasidic "new year"), Chanukah, Purim, Shavuos and each person's birthday on the Hebrew calendar.  However, Noachide participation in these holidays is different in various ways from the manner of Jewish observance.

Jesus Christ is regarded as a false prophet whose execution was justified under Talmudic law for reasons like the following:

1) He and his disciples practiced sorcery and black magic, led Jews astray into idolatry, and were sponsored by foreign, gentile powers for the purpose of subverting Jewish worship (Sanhedrin 43a).

2) He was sexually immoral, worshipped statues of stone (a brick is mentioned), was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent (Sanhedrin 107b; Sotah 47a).

3) He learned witchcraft in Egypt and, to perform miracles, used procedures that involved cutting his flesh which is also explicitly banned in the Bible (Shabbos 104b).

It follows that when President Reagan in his 1985 proclamation above refers to "the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-five," he is according to the very Noahide Laws that he has just recommended to the nation uttering a sacrilege and revealing himself as an idolater.  He pays respect to the Jesus Christ whom were he alive today the Lubavitchers would execute, had they the power.

The Noahide Laws are formulated for the non-Jewish Noahide helpers to follow

We are given our first glimpse at the end of the second-last block quote above that the Judaism practiced by the Noahide helpers is not the same as the Judaism practiced by Jews, and here follows a more explicit statement to the same effect:

The Law contains two parallel (but separate) paths for the world: 613 commandments for the Jews, and 66 commandments (contained in the 7 Noachide Laws) for gentiles.  Once a Noachide is committed to keeping the 66 mitzvos, he may (and really should) take on the responsibility for additional mitzvos, with certain clear exceptions: Non-Jews may not observe Shabbos (or holidays) in the manner of Jews (by avoiding the 39 categories of work), nor may non-Jews put on tefillin or tzitzis, put up a mezuzah, or be called up for a public Torah reading in a synagogue.  There are other restrictions as well, including certain limitations on Torah study (depending partly on individual circumstances).

The conclusion that the evidence examined so far points to, perhaps, is that the Seven Noahide Laws are the laws that Hasidic rabbis direct non-Jews to obey, and that these Seven Noahide Laws are in reality a collection of topic headings.  Anyone committing himself to follow such laws, then, is in effect putting his signature to a contract that he has not read; or, perhaps a more accurate analogy, putting his signature to the bottom of a blank sheet of paper, the top of which will be filled in by Hasidic rabbis at a later time.  The Noahide helper can expect that the laws which he will be asked to follow will be largely Judaic, but in the end only quasi-Judaic.  Although the Noahide helpers are expected to completely renounce Christianity, they are at the same time expected to incompletely embrace Judaism.  They are expected to be satisfied with the status of almost-Jews.  They are expected to take service in a pro-Jewish auxiliary commanded by Jews, manned by almost-Jews, expected to participate in some Jewish rituals, but expected to live separately from Jews and not intermarry with them.  In consequence, what such Noahide helpers might reasonably expect is that they will be accorded a status that is subordinate to Jews, will not share in the full rights and privileges of Jews, may be commanded to do things that Jews themselves are not commanded to do, and perhaps most importantly may find themselves being used to serve Jews while being represented to the public as non-Jews.

The plan for world conquest

The background of the Habad Hasidic plan having been outlined above, we are now ready for the gist the world conquest part.

It will help in understanding the following excerpt to be reminded that: Moshiach is the Messiah; Amalek is a hidden nation that for thirty-three continuous centuries has conspired to rid the world of Jewish influence and of Jews, and that is so thoroughly evil that it is beyond redemption and must be destroyed; and a legal code which conforms to halacha is one that conforms to Talmudic writing on legal matters.  The appearance of "be" below which I have written in red where we would expect "the" was in the original.

The Final War for Jerusalem

Why Permanent Israeli Victory
Is Now Within Reach

Judaism has always been a conquering religion, not for the purpose of converting gentiles to become Jews, but rather with the mission of returning the world to the universal covenant between G-d and Noah.  For halachic reasons too numerous and detailed to list here, gentiles today who follow Christianity, Islam, or other religions are not, for the most part, "righteous gentiles" who inherit the World to Come.  That status belongs only to those gentiles who carefully observe the Seven Laws of Noah, including following the halachic authority of the oral Torah and the rabbis.

(For those who find the concept confusing, we hasten to point out that this is not part of a conversion to Judaism, nor even a step in the process.  The Children of Noah have their own, independent role to play in assisting the Jewish people and refining the world.  Those individuals who wish to convert may do so, but there is no such requirement.  In the Messianic era, these righteous gentiles will worship in the Jerusalem Temple and celebrate certain Torah holidays, but will maintain a separate court system and not intermarry with Jews.  Today, such Noachides also assist in bringing non-observant Jews back to Torah, among other functions.)

During the time of the first Temple, the dream of eventually refining and transforming the gentiles was reflected in the presence of ten menorahs in the Temple sanctuary for a total of seventy lights representing the elevation of the seventy gentile nations.  But when the Temple was destroyed, the Jews had to influence the gentiles in a more quiet, gradual manner.  Although causing the gentiles to observe the Seven Noachide Laws is itself one of the 613 mitzvos of the Torah, the exile at times sank to such depths of harshness and oppression that Jews simply could not fulfill this mitzvah for fear of death.  In such times, Judaism was forced to adapt itself to mere survival; conquest was simply out of the question.

That situation has completely reversed itself today.  The very fact that Amalek can stir up such chaos in the world is proof that gentile society no longer presents true opposition to Jewish teachings.  One now sees anti-Semitism only where Amalek is provoking trouble, which is precisely where gentiles are the most desperate for guidance.  As Christianity spirals downward into strife and theological confusion, it becomes a vacuum unable to defend itself against either the lies of Amalek or the truth of Torah.  Amalek can exploit the worldwide collapse of Christianity only by default that is, only when the Jewish people do not seize the unprecedented opportunity.

And as the Lubavitcher Rebbe has explained, by transforming the gentiles we can quickly create a vast army of supporters who will help us reveal Moshiach and bring all Jews back to the Torah.  Specifically, the Rebbe has emphasized that the "peace process" in Israel will be defeated only through our influence on the gentiles especially through the campaign to teach the Noachide Laws (see Sichos in English, vol. 16, [19 Kislev 5743]).

Our most pressing task, to put it simply, is to launch an international Noachide revolution without delay.  The process has already begun, with dozens of tiny Noachide communities having appeared throughout the United States, generally composed of former Christians who have abandoned that religion.  The task of organizing be revolution can be divided into two broad stages:

1) We must first create a new Noachide society as an international network of communities and organizations functioning inside, but separately from, the surrounding society (based on halachic requirements and directives, Noachide institutions function quite differently from their Christian and secular counterparts).

This starts with an aggressive outreach program, by Jews and Noachides alike, to teach gentiles about their responsibilities according to Torah.

Simultaneously, we must organize functioning programs and institutions that are prepared to absorb these vast numbers of ex-Christians and immediately involve them in efforts to bring Moshiach.  The Noachide communities require schools for their children, modeled after the Jewish yeshiva programs; Torah study groups geared for their specific needs; coordinated celebrations of appropriate Torah holidays; family services for marriage, support for the elderly, and burial; courts of justice, led by rabbinically trained righteous judges, which will function similarly to Jewish batei dinim; and tzedaka programs to assist the needy, to build new Noachide schools, and to support Jewish settlements in Israel and synagogues throughout the diaspora.

2) In the second stage, the growing Noachide movement will seize political power using only peaceful, lawful means in the capitals of the Western nations.  This, of course, will not take place until the Noachide society has grown to some threshold size.  We do not know how large this needs to be nor which nations will join the revolution first, although the United States, as a fairly religious, conservative nation, certainly tops the list of prospects.

Upon seizing the reins of government, the new Noachide leaders will move quickly to implement a full agenda of reform.  All economic and technological aid to the Communist Bloc, including the PLO, will be terminated immediately.  Full support will be given to Israeli forces to reinvade PLO-controlled areas, with military assistance offered where necessary.  Jewish courts (the batei dinim of the rabbis) will be granted full legal sovereignty over Jewish citizens within each country, who will no longer be subject to the authority of gentile courts.  The pre-existing Noachide judges and courts will replace the existing court system of each country, and the legal code will be drastically rewritten to conform to halacha; in the United States, the emphasis will be on restoring the authority of the Constitution and abolishing all unconstitutional government programs and agencies.  The national debt will be foreclosed, probably by paying off creditors with government land holdings, thus averting economic disaster.  And law and order will be fully restored through the establishment of internal security measures, again in accordance with Torah law.

Almost as soon as aid to the Communist Bloc stops, the international Communist revolution will plunge headlong into crisis.  The captive peoples, seeing their liberation at hand, will genuinely rise up to throw their brutal dictators out of power, and the armies of Gog and Magog ranging from the Soviet Communists to the PLO will self-destruct before the eyes of the entire world.

Naturally, Amalek's agents will scream hysterically to intimidate Jews from carrying out the above campaign, hoping to delay this victory.  They have no power, however, to prevent our successful action; they can only try to create doubts and hesitation.

As the world plunges headlong toward the imminent revelation of Moshiach while the last walls of the exile disintegrate, the number of confused gentiles ready to change is rising exponentially.  If the Jewish people immediately begin preparing adequate structures for the Noachide movement, this tide will be channeled directly into a glorious revelation of Truth.  But if we allow ourselves to be caught unprepared, this same overwhelming force for social change can, G-d forbid, be diverted to empower Amalek's final assault on holiness.  It is not a matter of whether gentile society will explode in the face of the growing crisis; this event is an inevitable, and fast-approaching, reality.  We do not want to miss this incredible opportunity to provide light in the final moments of darkness.

The world has reached its ultimate point of decision, and the power to succeed belongs entirely to the Jewish people.  We can wait until Moshiach comes on his own, following a world war, or we can bring him through our own actions, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe has stated is our mission.  The choice is ours.

There is not a minute to waste. Jews everywhere, unite!

What goes on in Rabbi Schneerson's Schools?

Rabbi Schneerson's idea of education is to chain children to the Lubavitcher movement by making them unfit for life in the modern world:

Noachides, generally speaking, should not limit the number of children they have.  Moreover, a proper Torah education for their children is absolutely essential.  Ultimately, such a Torah-learning program will be similar to the programs for Jewish children, but with many important differences.  Right now, a supplemental daily home-schooling Torah program is being developed and used to teach Noachide children.  All parents must rapidly get involved, teaching their children at least one hour per day (after school, for example) according to this program.  As the number of participating families grows, it will soon be possible to organize full-time Noachide chedarim (day schools for grade-school children) in many communities.  This approach to education, based on the three-thousand-year-old Jewish yeshiva system, drastically minimizes secular studies (math, science, history, English, social studies, computers & other technical studies) in favor of total immersion in Torah, the Word of G-d.  This includes written Torah, oral Torah, halacha (religious law), Hebrew language, etc.; this philosophy of education is fundamentally opposite the one used in public and private schools and in standard home-schooling programs.

From the above acknowledgement, one might wonder whether there is anyone in the United States less suited to be honored on Education Day than Rabbi Schneerson.  One may go on to ask how it comes to pass that the single person who does more to pervert education in the United States than perhaps anyone else is chosen by successive American Presidents to be honored year after year on Education Day?  To "drastically minimize" the study of mathematics, science, history, English, social studies, computers and other technical subjects has the effect of making a student of small use to his fellow man (which is to say unemployable), of removing him from participation in the intellectual life of the nation, and of crippling his capacity to resist manipulation by charlatans, mountebanks, impostors, demagogues, and quacks.

To not a few Americans, the intellectual starvation to which Lubavitchers subject children might seem more like child abuse than education, and might appear to call more for intervention on the part of child-welfare agencies, or even prosecutors, than for Presidential commendation.

Where do you stand on this issue?

One yearns to dismiss the Lubavitchers as a fringe group of fanatics lacking the power to do harm.  However, such a dismissal would not do justice to their accomplishments.  The Lubavitchers have somehow managed to get a series of presidents to pay homage to them.  They somehow get their Lubavitcher Rebbe a Congressional Gold Medal.  They somehow get Jewish scholars to write sympathetic accounts of them.  They somehow get Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel to say of Rabbi Schneerson, "We are your disciples, we are your followers," rebbe.chabadonline.com/life/tributes/5.html).  They somehow are influential in Israel, where they succeed in inciting Israeli barbarism.  They are participants in the kosher industry which parasitizes the Canadian and American economies.  They are shielded from truthful reporting by Jewish influence over the media and the news services.  For such reasons as these, they cannot be dismissed as an impotent fringe group.

Rabbi Schneerson gives the appearance of having never forgotten the exhilerating Jewish Conquest of the Slavs popularly known as the Russian Revolution which transpired during his teen years, and appears to have dedicated his life to plotting a similar Jewish conquest of the United States and indeed of the whole world in which he expected to play a pre-eminent one might say messianic role.  (The Noahide web site leaves little doubt that Rabbi Schneerson's ambition aimed precisely that high: "In our day, the Messiah has finally arrived.  For the first time in history, there is a growing consensus of rabbis willing to name the Messiah, and they are agreeing that he is the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson," www.noahide.com/yeshu.htm)  The annual Education Day tributes paid by successive presidents to Rabbi Schneerson may have done the harm of encouraging him to an inflated estimate of his powers, and to the delusion that the Jewish conquest he had witnessed in his youth in his place of birth verged on being repeated under his leadership, in his old age, in the land of his final domicile.

My question to you is in the event that you become President will you continue the tradition of using Education Day as an opportunity to pay tribute to Rabbi Schneerson and to his Lubavitchers and to the Seven Noahide Laws (with their beheadings and animal sacrifices and prohibition of Christianity and separate courts for Jews) that they hope to impose upon the United States?  I put this question to you rather than to George Bush because it is you who have chosen an Orthodox Jew as a running mate, and so that it is your future administration that Americans can justifiably fear as intending to not only continue but to strengthen the support of the Lubavitchers.

In arriving at your answer, it might be well to keep in mind that by honoring the Lubavitchers, you do not gain their loyalty or affection.  They remain wrathful, vengeful, conspiratorial, and paranoid.  They have a long enemies list, and you can be sure that the members of your future administration will be on it, just as the members of your past administration have been:

In recent years, we have been bombarded with public exposures of dozens of top Soviet spies operating in the highest levels of our government, including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the military, and even the President's cabinet.  Many of these spies have continued working for the "former" Soviet Union until their exposure in the 1990s.  For every such spy exposed, it is estimated that tens of thousands remain concealed and active.

President Clinton himself was trained by foreign Communist Parties during the 1960s, and his wife is a long-time supporter of such pro-PLO Communist organizations as the National Lawyers Guild; this would explain why Clinton appointed associates of the Institute for Policy Studies, a front organization of the Soviet KGB in America, to the most sensitive positions in government including Anthony Lake as National Security Advisor and Warren Christopher as Secretary of State.  Holding such positions in the American, Israeli, and Western European governments, Communists are well-placed to sow public confusion and send our nations plunging into disaster at least until a few of us wake up and take appropriate action.

Despite annual proclamations of admiration for the Lubavitchers, in the event of their seizure of power, the President and his family might enjoy a safety no greater than that enjoyed by Czar Nicholas II and his family following the seizure of power by Lubavitcher coreligionists in the Slavic lands during Rabbi Schneerson's youth.
