"Under the tolerant rule of the Mohammedans, the
Jews began slavery and began to prosper. They, who had been poor and bedraggled
peddlers for centuries, now became wealthy and powerful traders. They traveled
everywhere, from England to India, from Bohemia to Egypt. Their commonest
merchandise in those days was slaves. On every highroad and on every great
river and sea, these Jewish traders were to be found with their gangs of
shackled prisoners in convoy." - Rabbi Lewis Browne
"Slavery is likely to be abolished by
the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. Slavery is but the owning of labor
and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led by
England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be
done by controlling the money. The great debt out of the war will be used as a
means to control the volume of money.
To accomplish this, bonds must be used as a
banking basis. We are now awaiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to
make his recommendation to Congress. It will
not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any
length of time, as we cannot control that." - banker's hazard circular

held in apartments, bars and makeshift brothels;
there they service, by their own count, as
many as 15 clients a day. Often they sleep in shifts, four to a bed. The
best that most hope for is to be deported after the police finally catch up
with their captors. In Israel in 1998 there was not even a specific law against
the sale of human beings.

hoped her beauty would rescue her from the poverty and hopelessness of
village life. After answering a vague
ad in a small Ukrainian newspaper, Irina slipped off a tour boat at Haifa,
hoping to make a bundle dancing naked on the tops of tables. (In 1998 the
average salary in Ukraine was about $30 a month with 30 applicants for every
job in most Ukrainian cities.) To the self-deluded 21 year old Irina Israel offered
a new world, and for a week or two everything seemed possible. Then, one
morning, she was driven to a brothel,
where her boss burned her passport before her eyes.
"I own you." Irina
recalled his saying.
"You are my property and you will work until you
earn your way out. Don't try to leave. You have no papers and you don't speak
Hebrew. You will be arrested and deported. Then we will get you and bring you
"I don't think the man who ruined my life will even be fined."
Irina said softly, slow tears
filling her enormous green eyes.
"You can call me a fool for coming
here. That's my crime. I am stupid. A stupid girl from a little
village. But can people really buy and
sell women and get away with it? Sometimes I sit here and ask myself if that
really happened to me, if it can really happen at all."
alone, the number of women who leave is staggering. As many as 400,000 women
under 30 have left in the 1990's. Israel is a fairly typical destination.
Prostitution is not illegal here,
although brothels are, and with 250,000 foreign male workers - most of whom are
single or here without their wives - the demand is great.
officials estimate that there are 25,000 paid
sexual transactions every day. Brothels are ubiquitous. None of the women
seem to realize the risks they run until it is too late. Once they cross the
border their passports will be confiscated, their freedom curtailed and what
little money they have taken from them at once.

stupid. There is less law enforcement since the Soviet Union fell apart and

"This is a
sophisticated, global operation. It's evil, and it's successful because the
money is so good. These men pay $500 to $1,000 for a Ukrainian or Russian
woman. They will buy these women and make a fortune out of them. Take a small
place with 10 girls. Each has 15 to 20
clients a day. Multiply that by say 200 shekels. So say 30,000 shekels a
day comes in to each place. Each girl works 25 days a month, minimum. So we are
talking about 750,000 shekels a month, or about $215,000. A man often owns five
of these places. That's a million dollars. No taxes, no real overhead.
It's a factory with slave labor. And
we've got them all over Israel." - Yitzhak Tyler
"The Tropicana, in Tel
Aviv's bustling business district, is one of the busiest brothels. Always
filled with half-naked Russian women, the club is open around the clock. There
is a schedule on the wall next to the receptionist - with each woman's hours
listed in a different color, and the days and shifts rotating, as at a
restaurant or a bar. Next to the schedule a sign reads, "We don't accept
checks." There are 12 cubicles at the
Tropicana where 20 women work in shifts, 8 during the daytime, 12 at night.
Business is always booming. Israeli soldiers, with rifles on their shoulders,
frequent the place, as do business executives, foreign workers and tourists.
The women who work there, like nearly all prostitutes in Israel today, are Russian.

girls in large numbers were noticed suddenly to disappear, without anyone
knowing what had become of them. It was the action tried in 1892, at
Lemberg, capital of Austrian Polonia, which finally enlightened us.
Twenty-eight Yiddish were
accused of abduction and traffic in young
girls. They had promised them the most brilliant conditions to persuade
them to go abroad. Immediately, once they had crossed the frontier, they were
treated as slaves and every attempt at
escape was roughly frustrated. On arrival in Turkey they were sold to
the houses of prostitution for an average
price of 1,000 Marks each." - Francois Trocase, Jewish
(1) The attitudes towards
prostitutes is similar to the attitude towards prostitutes now. It was seen as
a disgusting and immoral profession and there was no
sympathy for the woman. In line with the
fact that the Torah was written by men, the
prostitutes create evil. As a punishment Jeremiah 13:26-27 says; "Therefore
will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear. I have
seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and
thine abominations on the hills in the fields" These women will be forcibly put
in front of the public naked in order to embarrass and humiliate them.
Levititus 21:9 is a bit more extreme; 'And the daughter of any priest, if she
profanes herself by whoring, profanes her father; she shall be burned with
(2) Yet despite this, one of the heroes of the
Torah, Samson visited a prostitute. Judges
16:1, 'One day Samson went to Gaza, where he saw a prostitute. He went in to
spend the night with her.'
(3) Judah (Jacobs son) also slept with a
prostitute. Later found out she was his daughter-in-law and furthermore she
became pregnant. So he ordered her to be burnt alive. (Genesis 38:16, 40)

slavery in ancient Israel/Judah
"Tell us the precise time when slaveholding ceased
to be permitted, and became sinful?" - Rabbi Dr. M.J. Raphall"Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around
you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary
residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and
they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited
property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your
fellow Israelites ruthlessly." Leviticus 25:43-46
Slavery is not
forbidden. Slavery is legal and a modern imperialist might say it is freedom to
own slaves. Non-semite slaves from other nations may be treated as animals but
Hebrews must be properly treated as human.
"If you buy a Hebrew servant,
he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free,
without paying anything. If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he
has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him.If his master gives him a wife
and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to
her master, and only the man shall go free." Exodus 21:2-4
slaves in ancient Israel were automatically emancipated after 6 years of
slavery, but only if they were male Hebrews. Male Hebrews wives and children
still belonged to the slavemaster and female Hebrews were only emaciapated if
mistreated. Thieves were sold into slavery.
"If a man sells his
daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as male servants do."- Exodus
"If she does not please the master who has selected her for
himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to aliens,
because he has broken faith with her. If he selects her for his son, he must
grant her the rights of a daughter. If he marries another woman, he must not
deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights. If he does not
provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of
money." Exodus 21:8-11
If a person bought a female slave from her father and
she displeased him, he had no right to sell her to a foreign owner. If the
owner required her to marry his son, then the owner was required to treat her
like a daughter-in-law. If the owner marries his slave and later marries
another woman, he was required to treat his slave as he previously had. If he
violates any of these requirements, then she must be emancipated. She would
leave without any money or means of supporting herself; she would be free, but
"Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. But she
had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, "The Lord has kept me
from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; it may be that I shall obtain
children by her. And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai."
Hagar had no
choice but to become impregnated by her
master as she was Abraham's property.
"The seventh day is a Sabbath to
the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son
or daughter, nor your male or female slave, nor your animals, nor any alien
that is within thy gates." Exodus 20:10
Observant Hebrews gave their slaves
one day off a week.
"Anyone who steals must certainly make restitution,
but if they have nothing, they must be sold to pay for their theft." - Exodus
beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies
as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the
slave recovers after a day or
two, since the slave is their
property." Exodus 21:20-21

them as long as they can survive after two days is allowed.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
