ARE ADL/B'NAI B'RITH MASONIC, NOT JEWISH?
By Rev. Ted Pike

B’nai B’rith International, and its “civil liberties” enforcement
arm, ADL, is a worldwide Jewish organization operated entirely by
Jews in more than 50 nations. They are the architects of anti-hate
laws, ending free speech -- especially for Christians who criticize
homosexuality. B'nai B'rith is self-described as the “body
and soul of the Jewish world” and "a synonym for organized
Yet as I speak on conservative talk radio, I am increasingly told: “ADL/B’nai
B’rith are not Jewish, but Masonic. They have nothing to do
with the Jewish people!”
Let’s consider the facts.
To understand today's evil Jewish
leadership, we must first understand such leadership as it existed
more than 2,000 years ago.
In 597 BC, Chaldean king Nebuchadnezzar
led the captive inhabitants of Judah to distant Babylon. Surprisingly,
the Jews flourished in that occult and commercial capitol of the
ancient world. Bereft of their cherished temple with its priests
and religious education, a class of lay teachers called scribes or “sopherim” emerged.
Greatly influenced by Babylonian lore and occultry, these Jewish
leaders developed an interpretation of the Torah that was not based
on literal readings. Instead they used occult techniques like numerology
and juxtaposition of Hebrew letters to invent bizarre new interpretations
that were unrelated to the text.
When Christ encountered these “scribes
and Pharisees” of
Palestine, he excoriated them, “Ye have made the commandment
of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Matt. 15:6)
The Jewish Cabala
Even before Christ, the Pharisees who migrated from Babylon were
developing a secret “hidden knowledge” called Cabala. "[At]
the time of Jesus Christ, there existed an assemblage of documents
and speculations that were carefully concealed from the multitude
. . . this kind bore the name of Cabbala,” ii says Hebrew-Christian
historian Alfred Edersheim.
Cabala has nothing to do with the theistic
God of the Torah, an intelligent and moral Being. In contrast, the
scribes of Babylon were influenced by the pantheistic systems of
the Far East, such as Hinduism and Buddhism. They accepted the idea
that God is not separate from the universe, but is the universe.
They taught that His ultimate essence, the “En Sof,” is
beyond all rational thought or morality. Instead, God is the purest
light -- a light which filters down until it reaches Israel; she
is God’s holy shekinah glory on earth,
His manifest presence in the earthly levels of His being. Below Israel
are the “kliphoth” -- Gentiles, inhabiting the level
Cabala teaches that Gentiles should be ruled and even destroyed
by Israel. The Zohar (light, splendor) is the primary book of Pharisaic,
Cabalistic teaching. Of Gentiles, it says, “... 'living soul' iii
refers to Israel who are living souls from above and 'cattle' and
'creeping thing' and 'beast of the earth,' to the other peoples who
are not 'living soul' ...” “Take the life of the kliphoth
and kill them, and you will please God the same as one who offers
incense to Him.” iv

Cabala Preaches Revolution
Pantheistic Cabala taught revolution as well as racism. The Pharisees
believed that Israel is as fundamental to God and this world’s
existence as a proton to an atom. She should dominate the Gentile
hordes. The Pharisees lamented that Rome and later, Christianity
exercised lordship over the Jews -- an unthinkable blasphemy!
proper order,” Cabala teaches that through
every possible means, Jews should subvert and destroy existing Gentile
institutions and society.
The Zohar: “Rabbi Jehuda said to
him (Rabbi Chezkia): ‘He
is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of
Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them
and fight against them.’ Rabbi Chezkia asked, ‘How must
we fight against them?’ Rabbi Jehuda said, ‘By wise counsel
thou shalt war against them.’ (Prov. 24:6) ‘By what kind
of war?’ ‘The kind of war that every man must war against
his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau -- by deceit and trickery
wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing until
proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say
we should free ourselves from them and rule over them.’” v
The Zohar says that when Israel eventually regains control, the universe
will return to pantheistic equilibrium.
During the Crusades, the
crusading Knights-Templars occupied the Holy Land and absorbed much
Jewish Cabalist lore. They learned from secret societies, such as
the Islamic Assassins, how to subvert government and intimidate the
masses. Corrupted, the Templars returned home to create Europe’s
first highly organized secret society. Being master architects and
builders, Templars invaded many Masonic craft guilds of Europe and
infused them with Cabalist symbols and subversive intentions.
Fascination with Cabala
Throughout the Middle Ages, Jewish Cabalists
sought preeminence over Gentiles through commerce, money-lending,
and as practitioners of the black magic they brought from Babylon.
But it was through creation of secret societies that their Cabalist
influence has been most enduring and revolutionary. In her landmark
book Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, historian Nesta Webster
(who was publicly praised by Sir Winston Churchill) exhaustively
documents Jewish Cabalist influence within those secret societies
which spawned the revolutions of the last several centuries.
is the briefest overview of her research, along with mine.
Jews were a powerful presence in medieval Europe. Later, in the early
16th century, Palestinian mystic Isaac Luria expanded the mystical
and magical practice of Cabala. Interest in Cabala intensified among
Jews throughout Spain, Italy, Germany, and the Middle East.
east, Cabala fueled political and religious subversion that still
shakes the world.
In Khazaria, a nation of southern Russia, the “khagan” (king)
made Judaism the national religion in 740 AD. By the mid-13th century,
most of this nation of two million Jewish proselytes had migrated
to adjacent Poland. There, they forgot they were ever Gentiles
and became as passionate about Cabala and black arts as authentic
Jews. Fantastically rich Cabalist leaders, called “Ba’al-Shems,” claimed
to be “temporary messiahs” and commanded vast followings.
Around the middle of the 18th century, renowned Polish Cabalists
including Jacob Frank and Jacob Falk moved westward to Germany,
France, and England; they astonished high society with their
wealth and feats of magic. They were joined by other Jewish Cabalist
wonder-workers: from Portugal, the Comte Saint-Germain and a Sicilian
magician and Masonic organizer, Cagliostro. There is much evidence
that these and other Jewish Cabalists worked in concert, uniting
Templar-inspired Masonic societies in Poland, Germany, France, Italy,
and England, infusing them with Cabalist lore, symbolism, and missions
to overthrow existing order.
In the decades before the French Revolution, Bavarian professor
Adam Weishaupt created an incredibly complex, powerful and dangerous
secret society, the Illuminati. Luminism advocated the overthrow
of all existing thrones and religions. It was as devoid of cabalist
elements as Masonry was full of them.
We know a great deal about
Luminism because, in 1785, a Bavarian courier of Weishaupt was struck
dead by a lightning bolt. Police discovered from documents he carried
that Illuminati already dominated Bavarian society, especially German
universities. Luminist professors created the "higher criticism" of
the Bible so popular among theological liberals today.
Though a Gentile,
Weishaupt didn't conceive his revolutionary order alone. Eminent
Cabalist and occult historian Bernard Lazarre says, “There
were Jews, Cabalistic Jews, around Weishaupt.” vi Certainly,
Moses Mendelssohn was a devoted admirer and encourager of Weishaupt;
Mendelssohn was a Jewish Cabalist and founder of modern “secular” Reform
Judaism (out of which have sprung ADL/B’nai B’rith).
shows that though the Bavarian Illuminati was subsequently outlawed,
Weishaupt worked closely with European Freemasonry for decades. Where
his influence ends, no one knows.
We do know one thing: Masonic activity
mushroomed during the 17th and 18th centuries. It even captivated
some of America’s founding
fathers. Cabalistic Luminism actively enlisted illustrious Gentiles.
They were encouraged to invent their own lore, Masonic rites and
degrees. Yet these useful idiots even today remain ignorant of the
hidden hand manipulating their energies and idealism.
also proliferated during the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, especially
in government and international affairs, being a Mason of one sort
or another is often vital to rapid success. A selected Yale student
like John Kerry or George W. Bush knows that initiation into Skull
and Bones means rapid preferment, even enablement to the presidency.
The modern world is now indoctrinated and tied together by Masonic
institutions. These include the United Nations, the Council on Foreign
Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderburgers, the World
Zionist Congress, ADL/B’nai B’rith, and the government
The widespread influence of Masonry leads some to falsely
conclude that it is the force behind movements like liberalism, Communism,
and globalism. Because ADL/B’nai B’rith is led by Masons,
and because many premiers of Israel have been Masons, it's easy to
argue that Masons rule Zionism and “secular Judaism.” Yet
Masonry has always been only the most superficial manifestation of
dark and hidden Judaic ambitions, rooted in Cabala.
Is Cabala relevant to Jews today?
Impeccable Jewish sources say Cabala still holds tremendous appeal
for Jews. The preface to the Soncino edition to the Zohar says, “The
Zohar appeals to many Jews in a way that makes them regard it as
the most sacred of sacred books! For it mirrors Judaism as an intensely
vital religion of the spirit. More overpoweringly than any other
book or code or even than the Bible, does it give to the Jew the
conviction of an inner, unseen spiritual universe -- an eternal moral
order (p.12). During the present century, there has been a distinct
revival of interest ... in Kabbalah and eminent Jewish scholars
have attempted to show that devotees of the mystic side of Jewish
life and religion were not, as is popularly supposed, half-crazy
visionaries living in a universe peopled by the figments of their
own degenerate brains, but men of intellect, scholarship and sound
sense who aimed at bringing back to Jewish organized communal life,
a breath of that mystic sentiment and emotion which are the aromatic
life essence of religion, and which are indispensable to Judaism
if it is to continue to play its predestined part of bringing mankind ‘under
the wings of the shakinah’ (p.25).” vii
Do Jews or Masons Rule B’nai B’rith?
If ADL/B’nai B’rith were primarily Gentile, a case might
be made that Gentile Masons had thrown off Jewish influence. Yet
ADL/B’nai B’rith are entirely Jewish, largely consisting
of Jews from liberal Reform Judaism. Despite its reputation as secular,
Reform Judaism still venerates both the Cabala and Talmud.
to assert that Gentile Masons, originally manipulated toward Jewish
ends, now control B’nai B’rith! The truth
is that with recent exposure of ADL/B'nai B'rith as architects of
hate laws, these Jewish organizations are squirming to get out of
the spotlight. They'd be happy to shift blame to Masonry. It is not
surprising, then, that such disinformation has made its way onto
the airwaves and internet.
What Can We Do?
In response, lovers of truth and freedom should more than ever identify
ADL/B'nai B'rith as Jewish.
World Judaism is in a bind. With the
B'nai B'rith albatross around its neck, the Jewish religion and people
are increasingly viewed with disfavor. This gives lovers of freedom
an important advantage. The more B'nai B'rith is publicly identified
as Jewish, the more likely it is that worldwide Jewry will pressure
it to back off its anti-Christian, pro-hate law agenda. Already,
exposing ADL as a persecutor of Christians and architects of hate
laws has massively helped defeat ADL's federal hate bill this fall.
B’nai B’rith is the prime mover toward global governance
and creator of the 55-nation hate crimes gestapo in Europe (the Organization
for Security and Cooperation in Europe). OSCE works toward B’nai
B’rith’s ultimate goal: international power to extradite
and indict “hate criminals” at will.
If we keep ADL/B’nai
B’rith in the hot seat of criticism
from their own people, rapid advancement of their globalist, hate
crimes agenda may cost them more than they want to risk. What will
be the result of such a standoff?
It’s called freedom.
