Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr

It is necessary for you to have at least a "nodding acquaintance" with the Babylonian Talmud, which is the heart blood of modern Judaism, in order for you to understand the influence it exerts on Freemasonry.

Modern Judaism, according to Jewish sources, is modern Pharisaism. Rabbi Louis Finkeistein, head of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, in the foreword to his first edition of THE PHARISEES, THE SOCIOLOGICAL BACKGROUND OF THEIR FAITH, says on p.21:

"... Judaism ... Pharisaism ... Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism; Medieval Rabbinism became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout all the changes in name; the spirit of the ancient Pharisees survives unaltered."

Rabbi Michael Rondkinson, in his book THE HISTORY OF THE TALMUD, writes:

"The source from which Jesus of Nazareth drew His teachings, which enabled Him to revolutionize the world ... is the Talmud ... the written form of that which, in the times of Jesus, was called the 'Traditions of the Elders."'

The falsity of this statement can easily be seen, when one does some research into this religious book of the Jews and then looks at the statements made by Jesus Christ in regard to them in both Matt. 15:9 and Mark 7:7, 13. In this latter Scripture, speaking directly to the Pharisees, He said:

"You make the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered; and many such things do ye."

The TALMUD is so filthy and absurd, that it is blasphemy to say that Jesus drew the teachings of Christianity from this religious cesspool.

The second major source of Judaism is the Cabala, sometimes spelled Kabbala. This is the mystic, corrupt, occult teachings that apostate Judeans brought home with them when they returned from seventy years of Babylonian captivity. The TALMUD was begun about 500 B.C. and was finally completed, in its written form, about 500 A.D. at the great Jewish center in Alexanderia, Egypt. It contains the arguments of leading Jewish Rabbis as they argue over points in the Jewish religion. Today, the vast majority of religious Jews look to the TALMUD as their guide in religious and civil matters and it has rightly been called by them, the "heart blood of modern Judaism." In the minds of most Jews, it has replaced the ancient TORAH. Even in the time of Jesus, the Pharisees bragged about how they followed the teachings of Moses and were repudiated by Christ when He told them: "Had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me." (John 5:46). In another place (Matt. 23:2) -

"The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses' seat (in other words they had usurped the authority of Moses); All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not do after their works; for they say, and do not."

In other plainer words, they were "hypocrites" and this is what He called them to their face (See Matt. 23:15) -"Woe, unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass (go over) sea and land to make one proselyte (convert), and when he is made, you make him two-fold more a child of hell than yourself."

Pretty plain talk, isn't it?

The Jewish apologist, Bernard Lazare refers to the TALMUD as "the creator of the Jewish nation, and the mould of the Jewish soul" (L 'ANTISEMITISME, p.293).

The TALMUD is impregnated with hatred for Jesus Christ and the Christian church, although some of the more virulent passages have been removed from the English translations and are unknown to many liberal and non-religious Jews. They are still taught in the Jewish seminaries.

The Cabala was originally used to indicate that portion of the Mosaic law which was handed down by tradition. Since about the Thirteenth Century, however, it has come to refer to the esoteric (understood only by the upper elite) and occult doctrines of Judaism, which were learned in Babylon and are woven into the tapestry of Freemasonry. The most authoritative work on the Jewish Cabala can be found in the ZOHAR or SEPHERLA-ZOHAR, WHICH IS PART OF THE 63 VOLUME TALMUD.

These books contain the mystical, occult teachings of modern Judaism and Freemasonry and are often tied in closely with mystic occult teachings from the Far East. This system of occultism is sometimes called "hermeticism, "named after the god Hermes, who was the Greek god of wisdom, corresponding to the Roman god Mercury. (We see his symbol in many areas of modern life, such as the telegraph service.)

This belief takes in "Theosophism," which means the "physical appearance of God to man." Christian Science, Neo-Platonism, Judaism and Jewish heathen Cabalism. It is actually part of the revival of the Gnostic heresies which played such havoc in the First century Christian church and which provided the Christian world of Constantine, with an acceptable substitute for Christianity. Their adherents are still attempting to do this in Freemasonry.

The major connection between Judaism and Freemasonry can be seen in the Cabala, where there is a very close association between the secret teachings and doctrines of Judaism and Freemasonry.

One school of thought is that Freemasonry was brought into existence by the Jews, for the destruction of Christianity. This view, of course, is accepted by acknowledged anti-Jewish writers. However, it does not come into accord with established facts, since the Jews were excluded from many of the early English and French Lodges of the 18th Century.

The second school of thought is that Jewish Cabalistic tradition is one of the principle means through which Eastern occultism has been transmitted to the Christian world. This can be seen most clearly in the NEW AGE MOVEMENT, which has swept like wildfire through the Christian world in recent months. When men begin to lean on their own understanding, rather than the Word of God, and seek to "do their own thing," instead of obeying His law, they are easy prey for philosophies such as the NEW AGE.

Most of the leaders in Illuminism and Communism were initiated into the secrets by Jewish cabalists, as were early Masonic leaders such as Albert Pike. They drew their inspiration from secret Jewish writings. This can be clearly seen by an honest perusal of Pike's MORALS AND DOGMA. (It can also be seen by reading Nesta Webster's SECRET SOCIETIES AND SUBVERSIVE MOVEMENTS, Chapters 7, 8 and 9.

Many of the Jewish cabalists were MARRANOS a name given to them in Spain, where they supposedly converted to Catholicism in order to avoid the persecution of the Inquisition. During the day, they were Catholics, sometimes even priests and Cardinals, but at night they would revert back to Judaism and in their secret enclaves, they followed the occult practices of ancient Babylon, even including human sacrifices. When war between England and Spain became a reality, many of these Marannos threw off their protective cloak of Christianity and openly reverted to Judaism and were welcomed by the English.

To see how these secret Jews operate, it is only necessary to look at the controversial book The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion. (Many who have read this far, will state: "But those have been proven to be counterfeit." This was disapproved in a Swiss court of law. But be that as it may, I would use the same argument used by Henry Ford, Sr., in 1926, when he said concerning the PROTOCOLS words to the effect that whether they are counterfeit or not, didn't really matter, because it was an established fact that world Jewry was using them as a "blueprint" and were following them to the letter.)

I do not have time here to go into a discussion of this much maligned document, except to say that it follows very closely a much simpler blueprint of a similar document which printed in 1889, by James de Rothschild and was a copy of a document which was sent out to European Jews in 1289, by Rabbi Chemor, head Rabbi of France.

Chemor wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin of France: "The advice of the Grand Satraps (world governors of the Jews) and Rabbis is as follows:

1.- Make your sons merchants, that little by little they may despoil Christians of their possessions.
2.- Make of your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christian lives.
3.- Make of your sons, canons and clerics (clergies), that they may destroy Christianity from within. (There is hardly a Christian Seminary in America, which is not infiltrated by Jewish professors on their faculty).
4.- Arrange for your sons to become advocates and lawyers, and see that they mix themselves up with the affairs of the State, in order that by putting Christians under your yoke, you may dominate the world and be avenged on them

- SIGNED: V. S. S. V. F. F. Prince of the Jews.

It is not difficult to see how international Judaism, especially Zionism, has followed this Protocol and how they have been helped into positions of world power by FREEMASONRY.

There is no question, among those who have studied the Illuminati and their plan for world conquest, that their leadership was composed almost entirely of Jewish Masons. Mirabeau, a French Jew, in his MEMOIRS DE MIRABEAU, vol.III, p.60, stated that the program of the Illuminati which involved him, came about because of his intimate involvement in the inner circle of Freemasonry. He was a member of the Lodge of St. Theodore, to which Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, belonged.

There is much evidence available that the program for revolution which was carried out in France, was formulated in the Lodges of German Freemasons, who formed the nucleus of the Illuminati in 1776.

(Although Weishaupt used Freemasonry as a step towards more power, he hated it and was its enemy.)

Arthur Pruess, an American author, in his book A STUDY IN FREEMASONRY, shows the close connection between Masonry and the Jewish Cabal. He sums up his arguments from the celebrated Masonic leader, Albert Pike:

"All true dogmatic (stating an opinion without proof) religions come from the Kabbala and lead back to it; all that is scientific and great in the religious dream Of all the illuminated such as Bachme, Swedenborg, St. Martin, and others similar, is borrowed from the Kabbalah. All the Masonic associations owe their secrets and symbols to it."1

In 1901, a German Mason by the name of Findel wrote:

"It is less a question of a struggle for the interests of humanity, than a struggle for the interests and domination of Judaism. In this struggle, Judaism reveals itself as the dominant power to which Freemasonry must submit. Indeed, we should not be astonished by this, for in a hidden and carefully disguised manner, Judaism is already the dominate power in many lodges in Europe.

"So far as Germany is concerned, it must not be forgotten that it (Judaism) is the master of the financial and commercial markets, master of the press, both political and Masonic, and that millions of Germans are financially its (Judaism's) debtors."2

It might be of interest to note that at this time, International Judaism was preparing the takeover of the world by the destruction of two great Christian nations in Europe. They knew that both Russia and Germany stood in their path of world aggression, so as early as 1900, the Jewish Cabal had a war chest of some $2-billion, laid aside specifically for the destruction of Christian Germany. This was long before a little Austrian "paperhanger" by the name of Adolf Hitler came on the scene.

The International Jewish Cabal, planned in its long range scheme of things, the ultimate destruction of Canada and the United States, in order to control the Western Hemisphere. Those of us who have been a student of the Jewish question, have seen this assault in operation in this country for over fifty years. (For those who would like more information on this phase of the conspiracy, I would suggest you write for my book THE GREAT CONSPIRACY).

The Cabala and the Talmud

Nahmanides, Solomon ibn Adret, Joseph Caro, Moses Isserles, and Elijah b. Solomon of Wilna were not only supporters of the Cabala, but even contributed largely to its development. As these men were the actual representatives of true Talmudic Judaism, there must have been somethingiblythe Cabala that attracted them. It can not have been its and the metaphysics; for Talmudic Judaism was not greatly interested in such speculations. It must be, then, that the psychology of the Cabala, in which a very high position is assigned to man, appealed to tile Jewish mind. - from: The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. III, "CABALA" pg. 478 (1903).
