LaRouche's antisemitism | Zionism >

Although LaRouche has recently developped an apparent defense of Judaism (eg: "Yiddish renaissance", Jewish authors like Moses Mendelssohn or Maimonid), this is only an intellectual trick, consistent with a life-long rejection of Judaism.
LaRouche does NOT consider Judaism as a "true" religion. In his mind, this "religion" was never the predecessor of Christianity or Islam: "Juda-ism" was the religion of the "Judas", those who betrayed and rejected Christ, it is the religion of the traitors (eg "Trojan Horses", "Fifth Column" like Henry Kissinger, etc.). For him, the only "positive" aspects in Judaism came from "external" influences like the good "Egyptian Priests of Amon" (Moses), "Ancient Greece" (Philo of Alexandria) or Germany (eg the "leibnitzian" Moses Mendelssohn or the "Yiddish renaissance"). Judaism in itself, thinks LaRouche, is an evil cult.


This is what he wrote in 1973:

"Judaism is not a true religion, but only a half-religion, a curious appendage and sub–species Charlemagne keep his herd of protected Jews as “slaves of the treasury.” Judaism is the religion of a caste of subjects of Christianity, entirely molded by ingenious rabbis to fit into the ideological and secular life of Christianity. In short, a selfsustaining Judaism never existed and never could exist. As for Jewish culture otherwise, it is merely the residue left to the Jewish home after everything saleable has been marketed to the Goyim." (1)


"We cite the case of that influential hoax known as the Jewish religion... [...] This hoax (Old testament, note) was first introduced into European languages about 230 BC, on the recommendation of the same Aristotelian Peripatetics who contrived the exotic cults of Ptolemaic Egypt, and on orders from the Ptolemies." (2)


"Christ had freed man from such barbarisms as the Old Testament." (2)
"Christianity is not an outgrowth of "Old Testament" doctrine, but an overthrow of that doctrine. The essence of Christianity on this point is that "God's only Son" intervened to free man from the evil of the "Old Dispensation" - i.e., the Old Testament. The order outlined by the Old Testament is for Christianity the order of evil from which Christ saved mankind." (3)

From 1977-78 onwards, during his collaboration with the neo-nazi and revisionist Carto's Liberty Lobby , his rants against Judaism went further: Judaism was not just a "half-religion", it became an EVIL religion, rooted in the culture of Babylon; the "Whore of Babylon" which LaRouche considers as the "Mother of Satan"...

He associates Judaism with SATAN(-ISM):

The cartoon (right)shows a photograph of a Jew captioned "Satan." Streicher regularly used the old religious argument that the Jews were in league with the Devil.
Julius Streicher's Der Stόrmer - February 1943

He writes:

"It began in Moses' time, with the worship of Satan represented as the Golden Calf. The adoption of the satanic cults of the Canaanites ("Phoenicians") led to the destruction of Israel." (4)
"The modern Jewish religion originated not with the Kingdom of Solomon or earlier, but centuries later, as a synthetic cult created by the order of the Babylonians and other non-Jews. [...] The function of the Babylonian creation of the Jewish religious cult was to transform the people of Israel into an advance-post Babylonian puppet-state for Babylon's war against Tyre. " (2)

Note: the description here of Israel as a "Babylonian puppet-state" is revealing. Today's Babylon in his mind is Great-Britain. Therefore he would call today's Israel a "British puppet-state" (or "zombie-nation")...

Note: These LaRouche's pamphlets "Children of Satan" are unmistakably antisemitic: John the author of the book of Revelations presented Jesus calling certain Pharisees "children of the devil", i.e. children of Satan (John 8:44). It has been a source of "Christian" antisemitism (equating all the "Jews" to "Children of Satan" or even to satanism).

Martin Luther wrote in this notorious antisemitic document "On the Jews and Their Lies" (1543):

"I have read and heard many stories about the Jews which agree with this judgment of Christ, namely, how they have poisoned wells, made assassinations, kidnapped children, as related before. I have heard that one Jew sent another Jew, and this by means of a Christian, a pot of blood, together with a of wine, in which when drunk empty, a dead Jew was found. There are many other similar stories. For their kidnapping of children they have often been burned at the stake or banished (as we already heard). I am well aware that they deny all of this. However, it all coincides with the judgment of Christ which declares that they are venomous, bitter, vindictive, tricky serpents, assassins, and children of the devil, who sting and work harm stealthily wherever they cannot do it openly. For this reason, I would like to see them where there are no Christians. The Turks and other heathen do not tolerate what we Christians endure from these venomous serpents and young devils . . . next to the devil, a Christian has no more bitter and galling foe than a Jew. There is no other to whom we accord as many benefactions and from whom we suffer as much as we do from these base children of the devil, this brood of vipers."

(See picture on the left) This is why LaRouche associates here the "Jewish Star" of David (hexagon) with a "pentacle" (pentagon!), i.e. with 'black magic' and 'Satanism.'" '' Source: Courtesy from D King

At the same time, one of his colleagues wrote an article trying to "prove" Judaism is but a "Babylonian hoax" (5).

In other words, for LaRouche Judaism is not the worship of one single God, Creator of the Universe, it is not the first monotheist religion, in his mind it is the cult of "evil Goddesses" like Isis, Ishtar, Astarte a.k.a. the "Whore of Babylon"! (dismissing the very fact that all these "evil deities" were attacked and rejected in the Old Testament itself in the first place!)

This is why he cautiously wrote (and without any further proof) :

"The cult of Isis within Judaism does not usually take the form of direct worship of Isis as such, but represents a resurrection of an older form of the same belief." (3)

Later, in the '80s, he started to use Apostle St. Paul's attacks on the Jewish religion, and in particular his condemnation of... circumcision"!!! Why so? Because (still in LaRouche's mind), these "evil goddesses" of Isis, Ishtar or the "Whore of Babylon" seem associated with "male castration" which LaRouche associates symbolically to circumcision! (More at LaRouche: Sex & Politics)

Here is what he wrote:

"The Christian Apostles, confronted with the same general problem, rid Christianity of the worst implications of the Old Testament by emphasizing the "Dispensation of Christ," and warning against the dangers of the circoncision." (2)
"... Why did Nahum Goldmann's strategy fail? What is wrong in the conception of the strategic function of the World Jewish Congress? To put the point more precisely. What is lacking?
St Paul would have placed his index-finger on the problem immediately. He already has: it's the problem of the "circumcision," that terrible, self-defeating clannishness which has been the virtue and almost fatal error of Jewry over the millennia." {6}

Note: LaRouche's obsession with "Jewish cicumcision" is revealing of his anti-semitism. A recent study indicates that 30% to 40% of all males worldwide are circumcised! So, why this obsession with the "Jewish cicumcision"...? Source: Worldwide Male Circumcision Rates

Both LaRouche's concern with "Jewish cicumcision" (aka "symbolic castration") and Judaism's infection from a so-called "Feminine Principle" (aka Isis, Ishtar, "Whore of Babylon"...) explain why LaRouche's obsession with... Jewish women and Jewish mothers in particular.

Now let's see what LaRouche thinks of "Zionism"...
