The old dream of a Messiah who would bring justice and freedom to all men, was perverted into an ache for a ruthless conqueror, a war lord, who would wade in the blood of every heathen who refused to bring sacrifices to Jerusalem three times a year! The Jews alone were considered blessed; the goyim, the Gentiles, were all accursed.
The customs of the Jews are base and abominable and owe their persistence to their depravity. Jews are extremely loyal to one another, always ready to show compassion, but towards every other people they feel only hate and enmity. As a race (the Jews are not a race, because they have mingled with the other races to the point that they are only a people, not a race), they are prone to lust; among themselves nothing is unlawful.
Roman Historian Tacitus
Judaism was a racial cult which had as its purpose its own aggrandizement.
To read the Bible suffices to show that few people were more corrupt, few practiced more duplicity in their relations with neighbors, and that, lastly, few had less respect for the property of others. . . . "Submissive obedience to the Word of God, or death," says Moses to the Hebrews; who, in their turn, say to the neighboring peoples, "Deliver up your wealth, your virgin daughters, and your houses, or you shall be destroyed with fire and sword." . . . There are people who see in these massacres, respecting neither child nor women, except the virgins, a manifestation of God's power. We prefer to see a manifestation of the spirit of evil, ruling with undivided sway over these barbarous and undisciplined hordes, who, from their quitting Egypt, could but mark their passage with rapine, pillage and slaughter.
The Chosen People were to bind themselves together by bonds of mutual solidarity, but all others they might deceive and exploit at will. . . . After the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, the Jew continued no less conscious of his magnificent destiny, which caused the fervent author of Fourth Esdras [a Jewish apocryphon] to exclaim: "as for the rest of the nations which are sprung from Adam, you have said that they are nothing and are like spittle. . . . And now, Lord, behold, these nations . . . rule over us and devour us. But we, your people, whom you called your first-born, only-begotten, chosen, and beloved, are delivered into their hands. If it was for our sakes that the world was created, why do we not possess it as our inheritance?"
