Misinterpretation of the Torah by Zionists

The Torah is a holy book God revealed to Prophet Musa. God says in the Qur’an: "We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light..." (Al-Maidah:44). The Qur’an also says that the Torah was later distorted by incorporating human words. That is why what we have today is the “Distorted Torah.”

However, a close examination reveals the existence of many of the religious truths contained in this once-revealed Book, such as faith in God, submission to Him, being grateful to Him, fear of God, love of God, justice, compassion, mercy, opposing cruelty and injustice, all of which prevail throughout the Torah and the other books of the Old Testament.

Apart from this, the wars that occurred in history and the resulting carnage are related in the Torah. If people want to find a basis – although by distorting the facts – for the cruelty, massacres, and murders, they can well take these sections as references. Zionism resorts to this very method to legitimize its terrorism, which is actually a fascist terrorism. And, it has become quite succesful. For instance, it has used the sections related to war and massacre to legitimize its massacres of innocent Palestinians. This is a deliberately distorted interpretation, however. Zionism uses religion to legitimize its fascist and racist ideology.

The Zionists also base their claims on their own interpretations of verses that deal with the “chosenness” that God had once granted the Jews. Several Qur’anic verses deal with this subject:

O Tribe of Israel, remember the blessing I conferred upon you and that I preferred you over all other beings. (Al-Baqarah:47)

We gave the Book and Judgment and Prophethood to the tribe of Israel, provided them with good things, and favored them over all other people. (al-Jaathiyah:16)

The Qur’an explains how at one time God blessed the Jews, and how at another time He made them dominant over other nations. But these verses do not implicate “chosenness” in the sense that radical Jews understand. They point to the fact that many prophets came from this line, and that Jews ruled a large area at that time. The verses explain that, by virtue of their position of authority, they “were favored over all other people.” When they rejected every prophet, this characteristic also came to an end.

The Qur’an states that chosenness is for prophets and the believers whom God guided to truth. The verses relate that the prophets were chosen, impelled to the right path, and were blessed. Following are some of the verses that deal with this topic:

Who would deliberately renounce the religion of Ibrahim except someone who reveals himself to be a fool? We chose him in this world, and in the hereafter he will be one of the righteous. (al-Baqarah:130)

And some of their forebears, descendants and brothers; We chose them and guided them to a straight path. That is God's guidance, and He guides by it those of His servants whom He wills. If they had associated others with Him, nothing they did would have been of any use. They are the ones to whom We gave the Book, Judgment, and Prophethood. If these people reject it, We have already entrusted it to a people who did not. (Al-An’am:87-89)

Those are some of the Prophets whom God has blessed, from the descendants of Adam and from those We carried with Nuh, and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Isra’il, and from those We guided and chose. When the Signs of the All-Merciful were recited to them, they fell on their faces, weeping, prostrating. (Maryam:58)

But radical Jews, relying on distorted explanations, saw “chosenness” as a racial characteristic and therefore came to consider every Jew superior by birth and that the Children of Israel are forever considered superior to all other peoples.

The second great perversion in this viewpoint is presenting this alleged superiority as “an order to practice brutality on other nations.” To this end, Zionists justify their behavior by some of the age-old hatreds that can be found in some aspects of Talmudic Judaism.

According to this view, it is ordinary for Jews to deceive non-Jews, to plunder their property and real estate, and, when necessary, even to kill them, women and children included. [Source : For Talmud's anti-gentile remarks, see Israel Shahak, Jewish History, Jewish Religion:, The Weight of Three Thousand Years (AMEU: 1994) ]

In reality, all of these are crimes that violate true religion, for God commands us to preserve justice, honesty, and the rights of the oppressed, and to live in peace and love.
Moreover, such anti-gentile remarks contradict the Torah itself, such as those verse that condemn violence and cruelty.

However, Zionism's racist ideology ignores such verses in order to create a belief system based upon resentment and rage. Rather than falling under the influence of Zionist ideology, those Jews who genuinely believe in God will realize that their religion tells them to abide by those other verses that praise peace, love, mercy, and ethical behavior, such as:

You shall do no injustice in judgment: you shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor. You shall not go about as talebearer among your people;nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord. You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. (Old Testament, Leviticus, 19:15-17)

He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? (Old Testament, Micah, 6:8)

You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor's house... (Old Testament, Exodus, 20:13-17)

According to the Qur’an as well, war is essentially a means of defense. Even if war has been declared on a community, the lives of innocents and the rule of law must be protected. An order to murder women, children, and the elderly cannot be sanctioned by any religion, but only by fabrications masquerading as religion. In the Qur’an, God not only condemns this type of animosity, but declares that all people are equal in His eyes and that superiority is based not on race, line, or any other earthly quality, but on righteousness – love for and nearness to God.

O mankind, We created you from a male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you might come to know each other. The noblest among you in God's sight is the one of you who best performs his duty. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Qur'an, 49:13)

Apart from its false religious mask, the real reason for Zionism's barbarism and ruthlessness is its connection to nineteenth-century Europe's colonial mentality. Colonialism is not merely a political or economic system; it is simultaneously an ideology.

Zionism, which believes that the industrialized nations of the West have the right to colonize and occupy the backward nations of this region, sees this as a natural result of an international “natural selection” process.

In other words, Zionism is a product of Social Darwinism. Within the framework of this ideology, England colonized India, South Africa, and Egypt, and France colonized Indochina, North Africa, and Guyana. Inspired by these examples, Zionists decided to colonize Palestine for the Jews.

Zionist colonialism turned out to be far worse than its British or French counterparts, for at least they allowed their colonies to live (after they submitted) and even contributed to their colonies' education, fair administration, and infrastructure. But the Zionists do not recognize the right of the Palestinians to live; they practice ethnic cleansing, and contribute nothing to those people under its domination. You might even say they have not laid even one brick for the Palestinians.

Narrated by Al-Bara' (bin 'Azib): “…….He said addressing them, "By Allah, I testify that I have prayed with Allah's Apostle facing Mecca (Ka'ba).' Hearing that, those people changed their direction towards the Ka'ba immediately. Jews and the people of the scriptures used to be pleased to see the Prophet facing Jerusalem in prayers but when he changed his direction towards the Ka'ba, during the prayers, they disapproved of it.Al-Bara' added, "Before we changed our direction towards the Ka'ba (Mecca) in prayers, some Muslims had died or had been killed and we did not know what to say about them (regarding their prayers.) Allah then revealed: And Allah would never make your faith (prayers) to be lost (i.e. the prayers of those Muslims were valid). (2:143)” - Saheeh Bukhari.
