Another Israeli Barbarian - MK Michael Ben-Ari

An interesting little story.  Whilst a lunatic American pastor insists on burning the Quoran, his counterpart in Israel – far-right religious party MK Michael Ben Ari, demonstrates the hatred of the religious Jews and Talmud for Christians.

Here we have one particular Neanderthal demonstrating the subtlety of his arguments.  It makes it even more absurd, on the surface, that US Christians support Israel in such numbers.  But actually it doesn’t, because the theology and practice of US Baptism is above all political – US power is god given and it is irrelevant whether Israelis like Christians.  What matters is that Israel is a willing guard dog of US interests in the Middle East.

US fundamentalist Christianity is intensely political – it provides the ‘god cover’ for US imperialism.  God is always on their side, and damn the consequences.  Whether it is abortion, the death penalty or health care – US Christianity is a religion that worships the rich and promises ‘apple pie’ only in the next world.

Just imagine the cries of 'anti-Semitism' is the Torah were subject to similar treatment.

MK Michael Ben-Ari rips up New Testament, throws it in trash

According to the Israeli website NRG,  MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) tore the New Testament to pieces and then threw it in the trash after the Bible was sent to all 120 members of Knesset by a man named Victor Kalish, who according to NRG specializes in publishing Christian religious texts.

In the article, Ben Ari is quoted as saying, “This abhorrent book promoted the murders of millions of Jews during the Inquisition and the autos da fé… this is an ugly missionary provocation by the Church, there’s no doubt that the book and its senders belong in the trash of history.”


  1. I guess he reckons a sequel is never as good as the original.

  2. I think it was Shlomo Ben-Ami (sp?) who once said that if a fraction of what is being said about Muslims worldwide was said about Jews, all hell would break loose. But when an Israeli MK nutter rips up a Christian holy book, it makes the front pages of one anti-Zionist blog!

    I could be wrong on this but wasn’t this idiot seen laughing with another Jewish MK in front of a Palestinian house after its inhabitants had been kicked out?
