Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross

Regular readers of this blog know that in the darkness of the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, WordPress unilaterally and without just cause took down Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) — the digital equivalence of burning not one book, but an entire library of tens of thousands of blog-posts in nearly nine years of unpaid labor, many of which were the product of original research and investigative journalism that paid “professional” journalists no longer do.

After an interim of 8 days, we restored FOTM with another host server. But all of our pre-takedown posts must be restored, one by one.

Every day, I restore a batch of our pre-takedown posts, but without many of the pics and images, which are lost forever. I found some of the posts in published form, but with a different URL — which is why the links for so many posts are broken. Many other pre-takedown posts are in draft format, each of which must be re-published — which is why email subscribers to FOTM get notifications when the old posts are re-published.

Thus far, I’ve been able to find every old post, either published (with a different URL) or in draft, except two:

  1. Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross,” July 30, 2017.
  2. Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty — June 8, 1967,” June 10, 2017.

If you click on the above two embedded links, you’ll get the “Not Found” message. I’ll leave you to hypothesize why, of all the hundreds of posts I’ve been able to restore thus far, the above two are the only ones that are disappeared, without a trace.

Fortunately, DC Clothesline re-publishes some of our posts, so I was able to find and republish the Israeli TV post. Here it is!

Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross

Originally published on July 30, 2017.

John 15:23

“Whoever hates me also hates my Father.”

Toffee and the Gorilla is an Israeli TV show with a bikini-clad young woman named Dawn Rosenzweig as Toffee, and Shuki the monkey-muppet as Gorilla.

This is the description of the show on the Toffee and the Gorilla Facebook page:

It’s a parody of some of the shows on Israeli state Educational TV, especially in the ’60s and ’70s (some of the sketches are even in black and white, for added effect). The messages are unashamedly racist (against Arabs, Mizrahim, Christians, etc.), chauvinist and violent, holding up a mirror to Israeli society as it were (albeit from a safe distance – placing such attitudes somewhere in the past). The show’s creator describes its political orientation as ‘socialist-pacifist’.

Note: Mizrahim are Mizrahi Jews, also called Oriental or Sephardic Jews. Unlike Ashkenazi Jews — who make up 90% of Jews in the world and are descended from European Jews who, in turn, descended from Turkic Khazars in the Caucasus who had converted to Judaism in the 8th century — Mizrahi/Sephardic Jews descended from local Jewish communities of the Middle East from biblical times into the modern era. In other words, unlike the Ashkenazi fake Jews, Mizrahi Jews may actually be biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews.

In an episode, which was uploaded to Toffee and the Gorilla‘s Facebook page on March 24, 2016, but to YouTube on April 23, 2012, Rosenzweig/Toffee mocks Jesus Christ’s crucifixion by nailing Gorilla to a cross. Note that the Hebrew-to-English translation appears to have been provided by the TV show.

Here are the video’s English subtitles:

Toffee: “Shalom. You’ve made it to the history program of Toffee and the Gorilla. I came to talk about the highlights of the history of the Jewish people, from times past until today. Today, we will learn about the crucifixion of Yeshu [Jesus]. Have you heard about Yeshu?”

Gorilla, nodding his head: “I’ve heard he’s an honorable person.”

Toffee: “No, Yeshu was an enemy of the Jewish people. He attempted to convert us all into Christians. Although there are good Christians, to the Jew this is a terrible danger, a threat to the peace of the Jewish people.”

Gorilla: “I want to assimilate.”

Toffee: “Do you even know what it is to be assimilated? It means to get fucked up with a goyah: this is something neither I or you, obviously, want.”

Gorilla: “I want my children to eat Toblerone [chocolate] and become goyim. I am bored here, Toffee! I want to live in Switzerland with a goyah and eat Toblerone all day long!”

Toffee: “Okay, darling. If you love Yeshu so much, you will have to play Yeshu.”

Toffee says, facing the camera: “I am Judas Iscariot.”

Gorilla: “I want for all to become Christians and eat pork and Toblerone and have fun! Do you, the viewers at home, want to?”

Toffee: “Because of this, I will crucify you! How dare you preach to the innocent Jews?”

Toffee then nails Gorilla’s left hand to a cross.

Gorilla screams: “My God, why have you forsaken me?”

Toffee: “You are a Nazi, Yeshu. You are a Nazi!”

Toffee hammers the nail into Gorilla’s hand.

Gorilla screams, while writhing: “Toffee! No, Toffee! I am scared! I walked on the water, I transformed crickets into cake! No, I am not Yeshu! This is a mistake! I am Moses, our teacher. Do not thrust with nails. Toffee, no!”

Toffee: “It’s only one nail, you coward.”

Gorilla screams: “Nooooo! Oh Toffee! Oh God, no! Aaahhhh! Aaaahhh! Ay ah! No, no, no!” — as Toffee strikes Gorilla’s body with the hammer.

Gorilla makes one last scream, then lowers his head, makes two death throes, and “dies”.

Tim King, editor of Salem-News.comwrote on April 23, 2011:

So, a slutty Israeli TV show features a chick in a skimpy bikini mocking Jesus Christ by showing him as a stupid looking monkey hanging on a cross. Then using the ‘f’ word, she proceeds to tell Jewish viewers that Christians, we ‘goyam’, are ‘dangerous’ toward Jews. From there, it gets much worse.

We aren’t making this up; this is Israeli television being widely viewed today. The show is called, ‘The History Program of Toffee the Gorilla’. Anyone who advocates for this should not write a comment, instead they should consider ripping their heart out and sticking it in a jar; (it would have equal purpose and someday doctors could study it and perhaps determine what the hell is wrong with you)….

Welcome to Israel, where American tax dollars support this kind of scummy broadcast.

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.

Sunday Devotional: Prophet Zechariah foretold the coming of Jesus Christ

Zechariah 9:9-10

Thus says the LORD:
Rejoice heartily, O daughter Zion,
shout for joy, O daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king shall come to you;
a just savior is he,
meek, and riding on an ass,
on a colt, the foal of an ass.
He shall banish the chariot from Ephraim,
and the horse from Jerusalem;
the warrior’s bow shall be banished,
and he shall proclaim peace to the nations.
His dominion shall be from sea to sea,
and from the River to the ends of the earth.

“a just savior is he, meek, and riding on an ass, on a colt, the foal of an ass.”
That sentence, proclaimed by the prophet Zechariah, is only one of many foretellings of the coming of Jesus Christ in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament.
Below are some more foretellings:

Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Numbers 24:17

there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Micah 5:2

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Jeremiah 23:5

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Zechariah 9:9

behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Zechariah 11:12

So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

Psalm 22:1, 16, 18

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

they pierced my hands and my feet.

They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Psalm 16:10

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

All of which raises the question of why most Jews, then and now, refuse to believe that Jesus is Messiah.
Among the reasons why they don’t, according to the article “Why Don’t Jews Believe In Jesus?,” are:

  • The Jewish Messiah must be descended on his father’s side from King David, but Jesus was not because Christians say he was the product of a virgin birth and therefore had no father. (Hmm, does that mean Jesus is not Jewish?)
  • Jews don’t believe in miracles: “Even if the individual claiming personal revelation performs miracles [as Jesus did], there is still no verification that he is a genuine prophet. Miracles do not prove anything. All they show—assuming they are genuine—is that he has certain powers. It has nothing to do with his claim of prophecy. Judaism, unique among all of the world’s major religions, does not rely on ‘claims of miracles’ as the basis for its religion. In fact, the Bible says that God sometimes grants the power of ‘miracles’ to charlatans….”

Now you see why the Talmud, the collection of the sayings and writings of rabbis regarded as superior even to the Torah, calls Jesus a “bastard,” “fool” and “charlatan,” His mother Mary a “whore,” and Christians “idolators” and less than human. (See Rev. I. B. Pranaitis, The Talmud Unmasked: The Secret Rabbinical Teachings Concerning Christians; first published in St. Petersburg in 1892.; and “Truth About the Talmud“.)
In his 1991 essay in First Things, “When Jews Are Christians,” David Novak, a Jew, explains that there are three types of Jewish converts to Christianity:

  1. Fake converts: “Secret Jews” who converted to Christianity not out of a genuine belief, but for self-interested opportunistic reasons — to escape persecution (as during the Inquisition), or for social and/or economic gain.
  2. Genuine converts: Jews who sincerely believe Christianity is the true faith, and no longer think of themselves as Jews.
  3. Jewish Christians, aka Messianic Jews: Novak identifies this group as a new kind of Jewish converts to Christianity — Jewish converts to Christianity who claim still to be Jews and still to be practicing Judaism, insisting that they are practicing the true Judaism. Perversely, the State of Israel rejects these Jewish Christians or Messianic Jews as Jews. In 1989, Israel’s Supreme Court ruled against two Jewish Christians, Jerry and Shirley Beresford, who petitioned for Israeli citizenship as Jews under the Law of Return, which guarantees immediate Israeli citizenship to every Jew. The Court rejected their petition on the grounds that the Law of Return specifically precludes any Jew who has affiliated with another, non-Jewish, religious community, never mind the fact that the Law of Return is applied to Jewish atheists although atheism, arguably, is a form of religion.

Novak takes a different position than the Israeli Supreme Court. Claiming to speak for “normative Judaism,” Novak maintains Jewish Christians are still Jews because:

“Jewish status is defined by the divine election of Israel and his descendants. One does not become a Jew by one’s own volition. Even in the case of converts to Judaism . . . A gentile’s choice to become a Jew is a necessary but not sufficient condition of conversion . . . the convert’s choice is not sufficient to make him or her a Jew: it only makes one a candidate for conversion. The actual conversion itself is the act of an authoritative Jewish Tribunal who . . . Like God . . . is under no compulsion to elect, which is to say convert, anyone. Since Jews are elected by God, there is absolutely nothing any Jew can do to remove himself or herself from the Covenant.”

All of that only works if the Jews of today are actually biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews with whom God had made His covenant. The problem is there is compelling DNA evidence that Ashkenazi Jews, who comprise 90% of the world’s (and U.S.) Jews, are descendants of the Khazars, an amalgam of Turkic clans that settled the Caucasus in the early centuries CE and converted to Judaism in the 8th century. See:

Revelation 2:9

“I know the blasphemy of them
which say they are Jews, and are not,
but are the synagogue of Satan.”


May the love and peace of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Jews told not to vote for Bernie Sanders

In a recent op/ed, New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser reveals the tribal mentality of Jewish Americans.
In “If you’re Jewish, don’t vote for Bernie Sanders,” Peyser calls on fellow Jews not to vote for Sanders — not because of his socialist ideology or policies, but because he’s not tribal enough, i.e., Sanders is not loyal to the “Chosen People” and to Israel.
Can you imagine if Americans of other races and ethnicities, especially “whites,” were to be similarly tribal? There would be no end to the outraged cries of “Racism!”. But Jews are the ultimate “sacred cows,” about whom no critical word — even true ones — can ever be uttered. Why is that?
Below is Peyser’s op/ed in its entirety.
Andrea Peyser vs. Bernie Sanders

If you’re Jewish, don’t vote for Bernie Sanders

Andrea Peyser • New York Post • April 10, 2016

Bernie Sanders is not quite Jewish. He’s Jew-ish — a non-practicing, anti-Israel, kinda, sorta Hebrew.
Raised in a veritable shtetl in Brooklyn, the Bernmeister had a bar mitzvah, worked as a volunteer on an Israeli kibbutz — a collective farm modeled on communist principles — for several months while in his 20s, and counts a number of his European ancestors as victims of the Holocaust.
But the geriatric Vermont senator, who craves toppling Her Hillaryness from her presidential perch as he might crave a bagel with a schmear, is hardly down with the Chosen People.
Before running for the Democratic presidential nomination, before making a nebbishy star turn on “Saturday Night Live,” Bernie was something of a ham. He rapped on a folk-rock album while serving as mayor of Burlington, Vt., in 1987. Then he donned a yarmulke to play a stereotypically obnoxious rabbi named “Manny Shevitz” (oy) in a low-budget 1999 romantic comedy, “My X-Girlfriend’s Wedding Reception,” while serving in the House.
In the flick, Bernie/Manny rants disjointedly before wedding guests in a thick outer-borough accent, slamming the Dodgers for leaving Brooklyn and bemoaning the big money paid to baseball-playing free agents. Was he signaling that, if elected president, the self-described “democratic socialist” might one day try to redistribute athletes’ wealth?
“Now let’s just thank God you have your arms, you have your legs,” he bellowed. “Let’s eat!”
Offensive? Quite. Anti-Semitic? For sure. (He later had a cameo in another film!)
Bernie Sanders, 74, has forged a far-left political brand, siding with Jew-haters and Israel foes, which is redundant. I urge Jews and their supporters voting in New York’s Democratic presidential primary on April 19 to reject Bernie. He’s not good for the Jews, or anyone else. The rotten actor is certainly not good for the City of New York, home to more Jews than Jerusalem is.
Bernie is strangely quiet about his recent history-making achievement. Winning the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Feb. 9, Sanders became not only the first Jew ever to win a presidential primary or caucus, but the first non-Christian to do so.
This might help explain why he doesn’t talk about it. Sanders was the only presidential candidate, Democrat or Republican, to skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s Policy Conference in Washington, DC, last month. Campaigning in Utah, Sanders instead delivered a speech to the pro-Israel lobbying group from afar that was highly critical of the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians.
He uttered the tired refrain that Israel’s military needs to end its “disproportionate” responses to Palestinian terror.
What’s “disproportionate” about Israel’s self-preserving responses to rocket fire on civilians’ heads, Bernie?
He was the first US senator to join House Democrats boycotting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress. He rejected Netanyahu’s dire warning that the nuclear deal entered into by the governments of Iran, the United States and other world powers threatens the very existence of the Jewish state.
Campaigning in Dearborn, Mich., last month, a city whose population contains the nation’s highest proportion of Arab-American Muslims, Sanders stuck it to his own people.
“Hopefully, we can have a level playing field, the United States treating everyone in that region equally,” he said about US involvement in the Middle East. A playing field in which bloody attacks on Israel don’t draw a “disproportionate” response? Sanders scored an upset victory in the Michigan primary, beating Dem front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Bernie’s antipathy toward the Jewish state contrasts sharply with the pro-Israel views expressed by his presidential foes on both sides of the aisle.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, converted to Judaism before marrying a Jew, and has given birth to three Jewish children, delighting the tykes’ grandfather. But Trump seemed to foreshadow Bernie’s “disproportionate” schtick, saying on MSNBC in February about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, “Let me be sort of a neutral guy.” He has since backed away from the loaded statement.
Clinton, seeking support from Jewish elected officials and big-money donors, lately has crowed about her long-standing support for Israel.
This might make a voter forget her close ties to President Obama, whose relationship with Israel’s government is decidedly frosty.
Appearing last week in a town hall meeting on NBC’s “Today” show, Bernie was asked to defend his Jewish cred.
“Corned beef or pastrami?” Matt Lauer asked, passing along a viewer’s tweet. (Would he ask Ted Cruz, “Rice and beans or platanos?”?) “Pastrami, all the way,” Bernie shot back.
I’ll take a goyische president over this loser any day.

The United States is home to the largest or second largest (after Israel) Jewish community in the world. In 2012, Jews comprised 1.7% to 2.6% of the total U.S. population, estimated at between 5.5 and 8 million, depending on the definition of the term. (Source)
The overwhelming majority — 90% — of both the American Jewish population and the over 13 million Jews worldwide are Ashkenazis — Jews in and from Europe, and their descendants.
DNA studies have found that Ashkenazis are not biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews, but rather of the Khazars, an amalgam of Turkic clans that settled the Caucasus in the early centuries CE and converted to Judaism in the 8th century.

Please see a compelling study on this by Eran Elhaik, “The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses,” the Oxford journal on Genome Biology and Evolution, vol. 5: issue 1, pp. 61-74 (published online Dec. 2012).

In other words, since Ashkenazis are not biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews and since many Ashkenazis are not religious, it’s a misnomer for them to call themselves Jews and God’s “chosen people” still — as if Jesus, by His sacrifice, had not made a New Covenant that “makes the first one obsolete” (Hebrews 8:13). Why U.S. evangelical Christians unconditionally and uncritically support Jews and Israel is a mystery.
There’s a fascinating passage in Revelation 3:9:

I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars–I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

One can’t help but wonder that, since He is God and therefore knows all things past, present, and future, by “those who claim to be Jews though they are not,” our Lord Jesus the Christ was sending us a warning through time about 90% of so-called Jews today.
