X. X. Is Jesus the Messiah Awaited by Zionists.


In continuing my writing about the religious-political factors behind the Zionist claim to Palestine, focus in this article will be directed towards the Jews doctrine on Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Most importantly when we realize that most Christian support to the Zionists is based on the idea that they are the seed of Abraham (pbuh) who will inherit the Holy Promised Land and establish the Kingdom of God on Earth in which Jesus (The Messiah) will reign.

Do Jews have the same Messiah as the Christians?

Before answering this question, I will cite the following statements from Rev. T.W. Pike’s book Israel Our Duty… Our Dilemma to realize the extent to which Zionists (Rabbinic Jews) have been manipulating the Christian mind;

“… Modern or Rabbinic Judaism is the least understood of the great world religions. At the same time, there is no culture or religion that need to be understood, especially in light of events in the Middle East. … Christians today are unbelievably ignorant of the history, beliefs and literature of the Jews … In fact most Christians know next to nothing concerning Jewish history during the 1800 years after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD … It was during this period when the Jewish people returned again en masse to Babylon, that the bulk of modern Jewish attitudes and literature emerged.” (p.1)

There are some facts in which both the Muslims and the Christians believe; among them, is the Jews’ rejection of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and attempt to crucify him (The Christians believe that he was crucified); but Allah elevated him.

That they said (in boast), “we killed Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah”; but they killed him not, nor crucified him. Only a likeness of that was shown to them [The Qura’n 4:157].

{وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَـكِن شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ}

Transliteration: Wa Qawlihim 'Innā Qatalnā Al-Masīĥa `Īsá Abna Maryama Rasūla Allāhi Wa Mā Qatalūhu Wa Mā Şalabūhu Wa Lakin Shubbiha Lahum

Jesus (pbuh), according to the New Testament, said addressing the Jews who rejected him as a prophet:

“Ye reject the commandments of God…” (Mark 7:9).

Have the Jews changed their position towards Jesus Christ (pbuh)? Until today, the Jews hold the belief that Jesus (pbuh) was not a legitimate son; neither do they believe that he is a mighty prophet of God. I invite the respected readers to look at these statements written in the Talmud (the Jewish Book of Guidance) about Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and his righteous mother who are highly regarded by Allah:

"R. Papa observed: This is what men say, She [referring to Mary] who descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with a carpenter5. [1066] Did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that [referring to Jesus] were slain by them? 6 Rab said: They subjected him to four deaths, stoning, burning, decapitation and strangulation.7" [The Babylonian Talmud, The Soncino Press, London, p.725 (106a-106b)]

This quote from the Talmud carries a boasting arrogant tone that leaves no room for rethinking who plotted the crucifixion of Christ (keep in mind that this is the Christian and the Jewish belief; not that of Muslims). According to (Acts 5:28), the Jewish leaders have the greatest fear of Christians “ …to bring this man’s blood upon us”. In his last words before (the claimed) crucifixion, Christ made it clear to his followers that they should not expect any more mercy from the Jews than that which he received. “ If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” (John: 15:20) As indicated in John 15:21, Jesus (pbuh) gave the reason why the Jews did not accept him as a prophet and a Messiah “But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not Him that sent me…” The reason is that they do not recognize God (Allah).

Let’s look at what (the Jewish Encyclopedia) says about Jesus (peace be upon him):

“It is the tendency of all these sources (Talmud and other Jewish literature) to belittle the person of Jesus by ascribing to him illegitimate birth, magic, and a shameful death … All of the Toledo editions contain a story of a dispute which Jesus carried on with the scribes, who on the ground of that dispute declared him to be a bastard.” (P.170)

A timely posed ideological question related to the basic principle on which Israel is representing itself to the Christian Western world can be stated as; is Jesus the Messiah waited for by the Jews?

According to the teachings of the New Testament, Christians believe that the Jews have rejected Jesus (peace be upon him) when he declared himself as the Messiah; and they still do. The Jews went further to execute all means to persecute him and his followers after him. They were the ones named by Jesus according to the New Testaments as; “synagogue of Satan which say they are Jews and are not but do lie” (revelation 3:9) [in T.W. Pike, 1988, p 11].

Do the current Jews still have their ancestors’ belief about Jesus?

By looking at the statement above (taken from the Talmud), we realize the unfair and blasphemous image the Jews have about Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). They put him in an extremely law status as a person of illegitimate birth, a liar and a magician, not to mention recognizing him as a mighty prophet of God and a Messiah.

Prophets before Jesus (peace be upon him) had realized this rebellious nature of the Jews. Prophet David (peace be upon him) repudiated and renounced such people by saying: “Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see and bow down their backs always.” (Romans 11:10).

Then, why do the majority of Christians donate tremendous support to a cursed and rebellious nation according to their Bible, one that does not even believe in the same Messiah as Christians? And yet, they expect them to establish the kingdom of Jesus before his advent! Isn’t that in contradiction with the words of Jesus according to the Bible?
