Blaming the Romans
and Pontius Pilate for Killing Jesus
By Michael Hoffman
Former Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly promotes the manifestly ridiculous Romans-are-to-blame-for the-Crucifixion imposture in his book, The Last Days of Jesus.
He's not alone. On Holy Thursday (April 17) 2014, Andrew P. Napolitano, better known as “Judge Napolitano,” a widely admired figure among “Conservatives," at the website of the usury advocate Lew Rockwell (LewRockwell.com), wrote a column in which he stated:
“On the first Good Friday, the Romans executed Jesus because they were persuaded that by claiming to be the Son of God, He might foment a revolution against them...they feared a revolution that would disrupt their worldly power, and so they condemned Him to death by crucifixion.”
Pharisaic Jews are not mentioned anywhere in Napolitano’s column.
To assert that the Romans bear the lion’s share of responsibility is a contrived argument that serves to appease rabbinic and Zionist power on earth.
The fact that Christ praised a Roman officer above everyone in Israel (Matthew 8:5-13), and that the Roman administrator Pilate urgently sought to save Christ’s life, calling him a just man, and being threatened by a mob of Jews as a result, is washed down the memory hole.
Moreover, the disinformation that renders the Romans the main malefactors is undercut by none other than the Babylonian Talmud itself, in Sanhedrin 43a, where it is stated that the Romans were favorable toward Jesus and did not want to execute him:
“Rather it must be that the case against Jesus was different, because he had close connections with the non-Jewish authorities, and those authorities were interested in his acquittal.”
The Steinsaltz Talmud, volume 17, p. 159 (Random House, 1998)
What is there to debate? We have God’s Word in 1 Thessalonians 2:14-15:
“...the Jews who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men.”
We have this unambiguous statement. This Scripture passage was made by the Apostle Paul without qualifications of any kind.
We can find no qualifications or shades of ambiguity in Matthew 27:25:
“Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.” This a text about which the author of The Last Days of Jesus has nothing to say.
Tough-guy O’Reilly told United Press International (UPI) on April 10, 2014: “...kids in public schools should learn about Christianity if they are American children. If they don’t like it, that’s too bad,’ he says.”
Wow, what a mensch. One question: which Christ is O’Reilly presenting in his history, the Christ of the Gospel or the Christ of the synagogue?
The most authoritative rabbi in the western Judaic world is Moses Maimonides, “the Rambam.” He is venerated in the elite media and academia, though few of his gentile enthusiasts have bothered to discover what he actually taught.
Maimonides was an unabashed Christ-hater. We realize we are not to use those words; that they are politically incorrect and “offensive.”
We have no fear of uttering truth however, and in the case of Rabbi Maimonides, this is the truth. In his magnum opus, the Mishneh Torah, he wrote, “The Christians are idol worshippers” (Avodah Zara 9:4). Idol worshippers are subject to execution under the Noahide Laws promoted by every American President from Ronald Reagan forward, under the rubric of “Education Day USA."
Maimonides also stated that Jesus was killed “by the court,” referring to the rabbinic court. Nowhere does Rabbi Maimonides, the supreme halachic authority for western Judaics, blame the Romans, as Bill O’Reilly and Judge Napolitano do:
"Yeshu the Christian, who imagined himself the messiah and was killed by the court...” (Mishneh Torah: Laws of the King 11:4).
There are literally hundreds of “conservative” leaders like O’Reilly and Napolitano who minimize the role of Orthodox Pharisaic Judaism in the killing of the Son of God, putting the onus on the Romans and Pilate, so as to curry favor with those who rule the United States government and the corporate media.
With the misdirection perpetrated by "conservative friends" like these, Jesus Christ doesn’t need any enemies.
