One Shiksa/Goyim sticks her foot in it! Then decides it was, is and will be the right place for her foot!

When I was in grade 4 at the age of 9, the Six day War broke out in 1967. I had no idea of what was going on, or any historical background. I went to school believing that my greatest problem was that I had not finished my homework.

In the town where I grew up, we had a large and thriving Jewish community, many had fled Eastern Europe in the late 1930’s to make their home in a country at the bottom of Africa and escape the Nazi mentality that later caused havoc across that continent. They were welcomed with open arms and contributed much to the country in the areas of medicine, music, ballet, theatre and the legal profession. South Africa under an Apartheid system also supported the state of Israel and their policies towards the Palestinians.

However, in grade 4 I had no clue about any of this, made my peanut butter sandwiches, caught the bus and went to school.

The first thing I was confronted with was my Jewish friends who asked:

“Whose side are you on? Israel or Egypt.”

To my 9 year old mind, it was a case of eenie, meenie, minee mo! Mo landed on Egypt. To which there was a total uproar and the word went out:

“She supports Egypt! She supports Egypt!”

Clearly I was branded a traitor and a degenerate.

Many years later, in 1994, when the ban was lifted on South African passport holders from visiting Egypt, the first thing I did was go to that country. By then I had learnt a lot about Egyptian history and that the Sinai had always been part of Egypt. I was shown towns and areas that the Egyptians had won back from the Israeli invasion of their country in ’67 with the Camp David Accords of 1978 and the complete withdrawal of Israel from the Sinai in 1982.

But back to 1967. One Jewish school friend decided to take me under her wing. I will call her Phil. I often went to play at her house. Her mother was a very well known actress, her father a doctor. I learnt that certain cutlery did not go with other cutlery, that meat and milk thing they have, and what a Menorah was. I was also invited to the Passover meal.

I saw the empty seat and asked who that was for. I was told it was for the Messiah when he finally arrived. I did not have the heart to tell them that they had missed the boat by some 2,000 years. Instead I politely I ate the soup with a big fat dumping in the middle. I am sure the Messiah would also have found this Yiddish dish a new experience!

One day Phil decided to take my “Jewish”education one step further. After school ended in the middle of the week, she took me to the Jewish equivalent of Sunday School. Whilst we were playing in the garden waiting for the class to begin, quite suddenly, to my shock and horror, all the so called Jewish friends I thought I had, started chanting: “Shiksa! Goyim!” They proceeded to chase me and then… wait for it, pick up stones and stone me. That was the day I learnt about white on white racism. And it did not even have anything to do with the colour of your skin. Apartheid apparently runs deeper than flesh. Which stunned me. At age 9, I found out that there were even more degrees of prejudice than I could ever imagine. When I asked what Goyim meant, I was told it meant you were not Jewish. I later found out Goy are also regarded in the same light as cattle, like the animals we breed for consumption. Were they going to eat me too? Scary stuff that!

I later went and looked up in the index of the Bible and could not find any reference to Goyim. That was years before I found out about another book, the Talmud, where it says that Jesus will boil in feces for all eternity and it is ok to sexually abuse little children, so long as they are Goyim. I am sure Moses and Joshua would have a fit if they read that!

To give Phil credit, she stood by me and got stoned too. .. until the Rabbi came along, put a stop to it and we went into class. That day I learnt about the Mezuzah that is nailed to the door frame of every Jewish home and kissed before entering. I was told by the Rabbi that it is a short version of the Ten Commandments. However, I later discovered it contains extracts from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 where it says:

to give thee–great and goodly cities, which thou didst not build, and houses full of all good things, which thou didst not fill, and cisterns hewn out, which thou didst not hew, vineyards and olive-trees, which thou didst not plant, and thou shalt eat and be satisfied–

Which is exactly what happened during the Six Day War invasions by Israel in 1967, which included not only the Sinai but the West Bank, East Jerusalem (from Jordan) and the Golan Heights (from Syria.)

“... great and goodly cities, which thou didst not build, and houses full of all good things, which thou didst not fill, and cisterns hewn out, which thou didst not hew, vineyards and olive-trees, which thou didst not plant” sounds like theft to me.

Now I don’t know about you, but that is a contradiction of the Ten Commandments where you should not steal or covert your neighbours possessions. Were the same people who wrote this the same people who wrote the Ten Commandments or were they the people who wrote the Talmud?

The Mezuzah also includes Deuteronomy 11:13-21:

“… then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourselves. Every place whereon the sole of your foot shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness, and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates (Iraq), even unto the hinder sea shall be your border.”

Deuteronomy was pasted together from various sources after the Assyrian invasion of Samaria ( Northern Kingdom of Israel) in the 8th century B.C. and took it’s final current version in the 6th Century B.C after the return of the tribe of Judah from Babylon to Jerusalem, no doubt now including a Babylonian mindset of extreme fascist nationalism also seen in the Book of Esther.

The Mezusah is quoted once in the New Testament, but…. with an added commandment:

Mark 12: 29-31:

“Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” “

The Six Day War breaks the “… love your neighbour as yourself”commandment. Maybe Jesus read a different Mezuzah to the one read in Babylon? Maybe he did not follow the Babylonian Judaic creed? If so, no wonder the Talmud states that he should boil in feces for all eternity. And stoning a school friend in the garden of the Synagogue for no reason whatsoever is against the Ten Commandments!

I never went back to “Jewish”Sunday school after that. I had been lied to, thou shalt not bare false witness, and my life had been threatened, thou shalt not kill. They might have taught me about the Mezuzah, not the truth about it anyways, but they also taught me that the people who I thought were my Jewish friends, given half a chance ,would stone me to death at the slightest pretext.

Except for one.

Phil later joined the African National Congress and became part of the anti Apartheid movement in South Africa. She was arrested by BOSS, the equivalent of the CIA, tortured and thrown in jail under the legalised Detention Without Trial, the equivalent of the now signed into legislation by Obama of the NDAA in the USA. I have no idea what later happened to Phil or even if she is still alive. I know that if she was, she would be risking her life right alongside people like Rachel Corrie, opposing the Zionist Apartheid State and the Israeli illegal occupation of Palestinian land. She would also oppose Bibi right now and support a two state solution with independence, a Palestinian State and the return of East Jerusalem to Jordan and the Golan Heights to Syria.

I think that when the Six Day war broke out she was one of the few who opposed Israel’s invasion of Egypt. My totally innocent choice of Egypt over Israel obviously made her decide to be my friend and a good Jewish friend at that, one who was prepared to be stoned to death alongside me in the face of pure prejudice , brainwashing and ignorance. I will forever love Phil for that, where ever she is right now.

Clearly Phil and Jesus would have got along just fine! That “love your neighbour as yourself” being as important as “the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
