Written by a Catholic priest and Professor of the Hebrew Language at the Imperial Ecclesiastical Academy of the Roman Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, this startling book contains a full list of the slurs, vilifications, insults, and abuse contained in the Talmud which are directed specifically against Christians.
First published in 1882 under the title Christianus in Talmude Iudaeorum, this book caused a stir in Russia and beyond, and every effort was made to suppress it and smear its author. A marked man, he was targeted by the Jewish Bolshviks and executed in St. Petersburg—his only crime having been this book.
A reading of The Talmud Unmasked quickly reveals the reason for this: the quotes from the Talmud reveal a shocking and deep-seated hatred of Christians, using terms and ideas which the reader will find deeply shocking.
Non-Jews are described as Amme Haarets—People of the earth, idiots; Christians are “worse than Turks,” Jews must not associate with Christians because they are “given to the shedding of blood” (i.e. the original “blood libel”); Non-Jews cannot be trusted with the care of animals out of fear they will have sex with them “for they love the sheep of the Israelites more than their own women”; non-Jews are unclean because they “eat abominable things and animals that crawl on their belly” and “because they were not present at Mount Sinai”; that when Jews come together to say the Kaddisch prayer, no dung of Akum (Gentiles) must be present”; Jewish women must “wash herself again if she sees any unclean thing, such as a dog, an ass, or People of the Earth; an Akum (Gentile), a camel,1 a pig, a horse, and a leper”; that Gentiles differ only in form from beasts, and are “children of the ancient serpent [the devil] which seduced Eve”;—and many, many more.
It has never been denied that the quotes exist, but merely that Pranaitis had extracted them “out of context.” The reader can decide on the veracity or otherwise of this counter claim by reading the entire book.
The Talmud Unmasked offers an insight into the nature of Jewish Supremacism and the hatred of non-Jews which lies at its heart: but possibly the most disturbing part is the fact that all Jewish learned elders are aware of these quotes from the Talmud—but never speak out against them, and continue to claim that their religion is a “light unto the world.”
