Why Do They Look Jewish

A long article, with pictures and charts, in the Jewish Encyclopedia, under "Types, Anthropological," seeks to answer the question as to why there is a recognizable "Jewish look" as to so many self-styled "Jews." Subjects such as percentages of blonde and brunette types, their origins, skull formations, are discussed.

Then, to quote: "What is popularly known as 'the Jewish type' is not a correlation of definite anthropological measures or characteristics, but consists principally in a peculiar expression of face, which is immediately and unmistakably recognized as 'Jewish' in a large number of cases . It has also been remarked that persons who do not have the Jewish expression in their youth acquire it more and more as they grow from middle to old age." Illustrations of how Negroes, as well as Gentile adults and children, recognize this Jewish look, are related. That the "look" is not racial is illustrated by "the Little Russians, who apparently resemble their Gentile neighbors in every facial characteristic, but are differentiated from them by some subtle nuance which distinguishes them as Semites . It is seemingly some social quality which stamps their features as distinctly Jewish."

The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has issued a series of leaflets for Fireside Discussion Groups. Number 7 is entitled: "Three Questions Jews Must Answer."

The question "Are Jews a Race?"is answered, briefly, with the conclusion that Jews are part of a "general admixture" of races.

"Are Jews a Nation?' is answered with the idea that Jews form parts of all nations; that some of them have the Zionist ideal of a Palestinian nation but "Jews have a consciousness of world unity." To quote: Jews are "definitely a type, and consciously a unity, we are an historic people — a world community."

The question "Are Jews a Religion?" is answered by the assertion that "There are hundreds of thousands of Jews who are unbelievers. Yet they still consider themselves Jews." The incident of Jews converted to Christianity asking to help build a Jewish Palestine is related. "It is true that there are hundreds of thousands of atheist Jews, but they need not fear to be represented by Judaism. Of this they may be sure: that Judaism will not misrepresent them."

This is a good place to stop and agree on that point. As noted more fully elsewhere, aside from the "whited sepulchre" which constitutes the showmanship and trimmings of so-called "Judaism," its basic doctrine is that God is the "En Sof," a nature essence which has no attributes and can neither know nor be known. That is atheism and the basis of all pagan pantheism. Communism merely calls the same concept "dialectical materialism."

The article ends: "In a race-mad world, we will not be one more race. In a world destroyed by nationalism, we will not add one more nationalistic fury. But in a world in which religion is trying to re-establish brotherhood, we ... [are] the creators and bearers of one of the eternal faiths of the human race."

But Pharisaism is not an "eternal" faith of the "human" race and, in truth, teaches as a basic law that only Pharisees are "men" or humans (Exhibit 268). That "the synagogue of Satan," as Christ called Pharisaism ( Revelation 2:9, 3:9) is "eternal," is denied by the whole Bible.

The B'nai B'rith pamphlet previously quoted also states:

We want a world in which nationalism shall definitely diminish. And. Jews feel they belong to one world unity. When the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492, the Jewry of northern Africa received them. When the Jews were expelled from Germany during the crusades, the nascent Jewry of Poland received them. When they were expelled from Poland in 1648, the reconstituted German community received them in turn: and when Eastern Europe sent its Jewish exiles across the world, American Jewry helped them find a home, they have always welcomed their own exiles We are the children of a great and noble tradition. We were united by that tradition. Whenever a scholar in Northern Africa wrote a new commentary on the Talmud, it was read on the shores of the North Sea by another scholar, and whenever a rabbi along the Rhine became known in the field of Talmudic jurisprudence, his fame spread to Spain and even to Mesopotamia. They were united by one spiritual culture It is not race, so-called, but it is spiritual culture which has made us one.

[page 58] Indeed, it is this "oneness" of World Jewry for anti-Christianity, anti-Gentilism, pornography, immorality and plain anti-humanity which brings about a "Jewish look."

As a man "thinketh in his heart so is he." (Proverbs 23:7)

We know that the gangster or the woman of the streets will acquire a "look," not evident in the cradle. A glance at the photos of leading Jews in a Jewish Who's Who reveals a striking, often fierce, "Talmudic look."

Isaiah the prophet in denouncing the Judah tribe for their abominations said:

The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves! ( Isaiah 3:9)

Whatever the "Jewish look" may be caused by, it is not a result of race or genealogy. The propaganda with which we are currently deluged, to the effect that the Jews who have taken the Holy Land by force, displacing Arabs who had lived there for many centuries, are merely "descendants" of the prophets, "returning to their homeland," is the purest fiction and wholly false.
