A note on the Ten Commandments from THE TORAH :
Too often, it is forgotten – or not fully understood – that that their prohibitions apply only with reference to the Chosen People. Theft, murder, and other prohibited acts are permitted (actually encouraged ) by God if the victim is a non-Jew. The same deity who gives the Commandments to Moses also incites his army to rape, plunder and commit genocide against non-Jews.
”They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD’s people. …Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.” Numbers 31:7-18
”As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labour. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.” Deuteronomy 20:10-14
And the LORD’s mood and behaviour hardly improve in the remainder of the Old Testament…
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.” (I Samuel 15:2-3)
“Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.” (Isaiah 13:15-16)

With ”the LORD” as role-model and mentor, is it any wonder that Judaism’s ”Holy Scriptures” are a psychopath’s charter – and Israel’s Licence to Kill ?
It is commonly asserted that All Religions teach Morality and Peace.
Unfortunately, Not so…..
’THE TALMUD (תוֹרָה Hebrew) is Judaism’s second ”holy” book (actually a collection of books). Its authority may even take precedence over the Old Testament in Judaism. (Evidence of this may be found in the Talmud itself, (Erubin 21b) : “My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah”)…..
Sanhedrin 57a ”What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep, A Jew need not pay a gentile the wages owed him for work.”.
Yebamoth 98a. ”All gentile children are animals”
Boda Sarah 37a. “A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated.”
Abodah Zarah 36b. ”Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (נִדָּה =filth) from birth”
Schulchan Aruch, Jore Dia. “A Jew is permitted to rape, cheat and perjure himself; but he must take care that he is not found out, so that Israel may not suffer.”
Baba Kamma 37b. ”The gentiles are outside the protection of the Law, and God has exposed their money to lsrael ”
Sepher Ikkarim III c 25: “It is permitted to take the body and life of a gentile.”

THE TORAH and THE TALMUD : Corrosive supremacist delusion, and psychopathy exonerated …(though Baba Kamma 37b does provide a more accurate analysis of the current global financial situation than most economics textbooks !)
