Unless you can read Aramaic, and have been formally taught in Talmud, you arent qualified to pass judgement on it. Its a very hefty work; so much so
that there are rabbis who specialize in Talmudic Logic, and are called 'talmudists'.
Talmud in essence is the codification of the Biblical Oral tradition of the Hebrew, written around 100 CE.. It consists of the 6 tractates of Mishna,
the Babylonian Talmud, and the Jerusalem Talmud. Together they make up about 60 volumes.
So theres a boatload of prerequisites needed to understand Talmud. First, an understanding of Hebrew and Aramaic, a competent teacher, and a great
deal of time.
Also, it should be mentioned that antisemitism isnt a new thing. There are more than enough people who devote themselves to slandering and
misrepresenting Judaism by mistranslating, or manipulating context, subtext, of Talmudic material.
This website explains their tactics.
I didn't know that your new leader was of questionable motives when it comes to his own people. I always figured that as far as Israeli's go, the
government was among the most hardcore nationalist in the west to survive surrounded as it is.
The government is hardcore nationalistic? Maybe in 1948 before Ben gurion. The Labor is NOTORIOUSLY anti-nationalistic, pro "peace", which just means
the handing over of more Jewish land to Arab militants (see what happened to Gush Katiff after Sharon expelled its 5000 inhabitants). The labor party
is anti-Judaism. Literally every labor government is involved in de-judaizing Israel and this has been manifested by many gestures; but mainly its
moral relativistic doctrine and western liberal values. Its constant perseuction of religious Jews and preventing them from worshipping at their holy
sites; in hebron, sheckem, temple mount..
Likud, Kadima, Shas are also very corrupt. The entire Israeli establishment is controlled by Western - through the US state department and European
diplomats - interests. This is why Shimon Peres has served in such an influential position in whatever government hes been apart of. Foreign
minister, 3 times as prime minister, president..... This man is despised in Israel, yet he always maanges to secure a prominent role in
