Two of Israel’s state-funded rabbis at a pre-military religious academy in a West Bank Jewish settlement have been recorded telling their Jewish students that non-Jews are genetically inferior and are best being the slaves of Jews, according to reports in the Israeli media.
The rabbi’s lectures—given to Jews preparing to enter the Israeli military—were first broadcast on Israel’s Channel 13 TV station, but were translated into English by the Times of Israel.
The David pre-army IDF preparatory yeshiva was opened 25 years in the illegal settlement of Eli. Many of its graduates hold high ranks in the Israeli Defence Forces, and former Israeli President Shimon Peres called it a “pride of the country.”
In the film released by Channel 13, Rabbi Eliezer Kashtiel, the head of the Bnei David academy, can be heard calling for the enslavement of the “stupid and violent” non-Jews due to their genetic inferiority.
“The gentiles will want to be our slaves. Being a slave to a Jew is the best. They’re glad to be slaves, they want to be slaves,” he told a class in one of the video clips. “Instead of just walking the streets and being stupid and violent and harming each other, once they’re slaves, their lives can begin to take shape.”
“All around us, we are surrounded by peoples with genetic problems. Ask a simple Arab ‘where do you want to be?’ He wants to be under the occupation. Why? Because they have genetic problems, they don’t know how to run a country, they don’t know how to do anything. Look at them.”
In the lecture, Kashtiel goes on to embrace racism:
“Yes, we’re racists. We believe in racism… There are races in the world and peoples have genetic traits, and that requires us to try to help them,” he said. “The Jews are a more successful race.”
In another clip from the Bnei David Yeshiva published by Channel 13, Rabbi Giora Redler can be saying that Hitler was right and that his only problem was that he was on the “wrong side.”
“Let’s just start with whether Hitler was right or not,” Rabbi Redler told the told students. “He was the most correct person there ever was, and was correct in every word he said… he was just on the wrong side.”
“The real Holocaust was not when they murdered the Jews, that’s not it. All these excuses — that it was ideological or systematic — are nonsense,” he said. “Humanism, and the secular culture of ‘We believe in man,’ that’s the Holocaust.”
After the footage was aired on Monday, Kashtiel and Redler, in a statement to Channel 13, acknowledged making the remarks but claimed the comments were taken out of context.
Kashtiel said he was “pained” that his “lesson on human rights” was misinterpreted, telling the network he meant the precise opposite, and was calling for “social responsibility and caring for the weak.” He said his references to slavery and racism were a “modernist-socialist interpretation” of those concepts.
In his lesson, Redler said he was simply trying to “explain Hitler’s morbid logic,” and accused the media of a “cynical smear” against him days before Holocaust Remembrance Day.
According to the Times of Israel, rabbis teaching at the Eli academy, which it described as “a darling of the national religious camp for funneling of thousands of religious officers into senior combat positions in the IDF,” have a “history of making controversial and illiberal remarks.”
In 2016, the co-founder of the Bnei David academy, Yigal Levinstein, was recorded in class calling homosexuals “sick and perverted.
In another lecture that year, Levinstein claimed that drafting women to the IDF was making them “crazy” and stripped them of their Jewishness.
Bnei David’s other co-founder, Rabbi Eli Sadan, preaches against educating women, claiming that independent thinking “neuters their most important capability… to build the home.”
Last year, footage surfaced of another Bnei David teacher, Rabbi Yosef Kelner, lecturing students on women being “weak-minded” and possessing a reduced capacity for spirituality.
- Needless to say, the Jewish-lobby controlled media in the West has ignored these outbursts, all as part of their ongoing plan to always cover up instances of Jewish racism.
If any teacher at a Christian college anywhere in the world had made similar remarks about Jews—or any race—the media would have given it great publicity as evidence of “white racism” and be campaigning for their dismissal or worse.
However, as is obvious to all informed observers, the controlled media has one set of standards for Jews, and another for non-Jews—just like Rabbi Kashtiel indicated.
