The Consequences of Zionist Mentality and Psychology… Racism (1) Featured

By Sheikh Dr Yusuf Al-Qaradawi November 01, 2023 3073



The problem with Israel is that it is a product of Zionism, affected by fundamental ailments or defects inherent to it. These symptoms are an integral part of its existence serving as a barrier and obstacle between us and them.

Recognizing our occupier and enemy, who threatens our land and existence, is a religious and national duty. Thus, it is crucial that we understand these dangerous consequences arising from the Zionist mentality and psychology. These consequences are rooted in the dangerous teachings of the Talmud and fueled by the most precarious aspirations of Zionism.

  • Racism:

The first defect is racism, which is an inherent problem in the structure of Jewish religious thought, created by the books of the Torah and its supplements. It’s nurtured and developed by the teachings of the Talmud, which Jews sanctify more than the Torah. Jews believe that they are the people to whom Judaism belongs, and Torah is these people’s book, even Allah the Almighty, is these people’s Lord, referring to the people of "Israel."

We find that the Quran clearly and definitely declares: " Allah is the Lord of mankind," "the Lord of all things," and "the Lord of the worlds." It does not say, " He is the Lord of the Arabs" or "the Lord of the Muslims." In contrast, the Torah affirms concerning God: "He is the Lord of Israel"!

Indeed, the Torah, from beginning to end, focuses solely on the people of Israel, their history, and their aspirations. It doesn’t mention at all the hereafter, paradise, or hell, just emphasizing the dominion and the glory of "Israel."

The Torah describes the people of Israel as the "chosen people." We used to say this about them when they carried the message of monotheism, fought against polytheism, and followed the teachings of the prophets. However, this changed when they deviated in their beliefs and behaviors, opposing the prophets and messengers.

The Quran criticized their actions saying: “But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.” (Al-Baqara: 87) This why, John the Baptist and Jesus, peace be upon them, told them: "O offspring of those who killed the prophets!"

And that is why the Quran, which declared that Allah favored the Children of Israel over the worlds of their time, also said: "Those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel were cursed by the tongue of David and of Jesus, the son of Mary. {78} That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed. They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did. How wretched was that which they were doing!" (Al-Ma'idah: 79) and " They will be humiliated wherever they are encountered, except through a rope from Allah, and a rope from people; and they have incurred wrath from Allah, and they were stricken with misery. That is because they rejected Allah’s revelations and killed the prophets unjustly. That is because they rebelled and committed aggression." (Aal-E-Imran: 112).

Some people have been led to believe that naming "Israel" the "chosen people" is similar to naming the Islamic nation "the best nation brought out for the people," which is a clear misconception. The Islamic nation is not a racist nation; it’s a nation of a message, goals, and principles for anyone who believes in and adheres to them. Thus, anyone who believes in these messages, regardless of their ethnicity, color, or homeland, is part of this nation.

The Jews have portrayed themselves to the world as a persecuted and homeless race, wielding the accusation of anti-Semitism, and exploiting it in a vicious manner.

The truth is that most Jews today are neither Semitic nor descendants of Israel, which have been confirmed by many fair Western researchers. A significant portion of Jews can be traced back to the Khazar Kingdom, which originated in Eastern Europe when some Tatar tribes converted to Judaism. After its fall, some of them spread to the Crimea region, and Poland became their main settlement. Around the year 1650, it was estimated that their population in Poland was around half a million, where they enjoyed a great deal of self-government. This was until 1658 when the Ukrainian Khmelnytsky armies massacred them and destroyed their community.

The Jews have always complained to the world and its influential powers about anti-Semitism, yet now they oppose the "true Semitism" represented by the Arab Palestinian people, who were expelled from their homes and displaced unjustly.

The Jews, who once complained about the racist Nazism, embody today a new, fanatical form of Nazism, one that only sees itself and does not acknowledge the rights of others, especially when they oppose its principles.
