Title: Muslims all "evil" says racist Jewish cult. Media blackout


Government funds Racist cult that claims all Christians and Muslims are

 The Criminal Code of Canada [subsection 281.2(2)] identifies those
guilty of the "Willful Promotion of Hatred" as follows:

 "every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private
conversation, willfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group
is guilty of an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for two
years, etc." 

In 1998, the government of Quebec promised nearly one million dollars to
the fanatical messianic cult known as "Chabad-Lubavitch."  Yet this cult
has brazenly published, disseminated, taught and promoted the hatred of
a great many "identifiable groups" (Christians, Muslims, and all other
non-Jews) by casting them as subhuman and demonic.

In the quotations below, taken from their own literature and in their
own officially sanctioned English translation,  the members of
"Chabad-Lubavitch" openly declare that Christians and Muslims are all
"evil." Why?  Because they are supposedly created and sustained by the
Satanic forces of the universe (called "kelipot" or shells in their

My name is Michael Samuel.  I am a former professor in the Judaic
studies department of Concordia University, Montreal, and I have a
question for you:

 What would you do if a racist cult tried to build its headquarters in
your neighborhood?  What if the cult targeted specifically young people,
teaching them that all Christians and Muslims are:-

1.  evil, Satanic creatures from birth (making all Gentile babies
"little demons");
2.  no better than worms;
3.  not really living beings at all, but already "dead;"
4.  all to be forcibly converted or subjugated by the "Messiah," whose
arrival it is their sacred duty to hasten.

 These are just some of the racist teachings of the fanatical messianic
cult named "Chabad-Lubavitch."  This cult, masquerading as "authentic
Judaism," has been promised nearly one million dollars in funding by the
government of Premier Lucien Bouchard of Quebec in order to build its
new religious complex in Cote St. Luc, Montreal.

Why should you care?  Because Chabad-Lubavitch is not just our problem,
it may be yours as well.  It is an extremely powerful, worldwide
organization.  Its power has until now intimidated the media, who are
afraid to expose the evidence of racism produced here to the public,
lest they be accused of anti-semitism.  We desperately need your help in
breaking this media blackout.

Chabad-Lubavitch preys on young people in search of religious identity
and meaning.  It is aggressively missionizing and spreading its
religious bigotry around the globe, especially on university campuses.
Chances are, there is a Chabad-Lubavitch presence in your city already.

Here are three typically racist passages taken from the basic textbook
of Chabad-Lubavitch called "Likute Amarim" or "Tanya."  It is one of
the primary texts used in their indoctrination or "outreach" programs.
Please note that I am using their own, officially sanctioned English
translation (published by their "Kehot Publication Society" New York --
London, 1973).

 In the very first chapter of this work, we read:

 "The souls of the nations of the world (i.e. all Christians, Muslims,
Buddhists, etc.), however, emanate from the other, unclean `kelipot'
(evil forces) which contain no good whatever"  (page 5).

 Further on, we read:

 "However, the `kelipot' (evil forces) are subdivided into two grades,
one lower than the other.  The lower grade consists of the three
`kelipot' which are altogether unclean and evil, containing no good
whatever. ... From them flow and derive the souls of all the nations of
the world (i.e. all Christians, Muslims, etc.), and the existence of
their bodies, and also the souls of all living creatures that are
unclean and unfit for consumption" (chapter 6, page 25).

 Thus, Chabad-Lubavitch lumps non-Jews together with pigs, snakes and
worms, and all other "creatures that are unclean and unfit for

The third passage leaves absolutely no doubt as to their racist and
religious bigotry:

 "To elucidate still further, it is necessary to clarify the meaning of
the verse, `The candle of God is the soul of (neshamah) of man.'  What
it means is that the souls of Jews, who are called "man," are, by way of
illustration, like the flame of the candle, whose nature it is always to
scintillate upwards... Now this is a general principle in the whole
realm of holiness...  This stands in direct contrast to the so-called
`kelipah' (evil forces) and `sitra achara' (the other, evil side),
wherefrom are derived the souls of the Gentiles...  Therefore they (the
Gentiles) are called `dead'..."  (chapter 19, page 77 and 79).

 This text makes it clear that for Chabad-Lubavitch, only Jews are
considered human ("called man").  They teach that non-Jews are sub-human
creatures who barely even qualify as living beings (they are called
