ARE ADL/B'NAI B'RITH MASONIC, NOT JEWISH?
By Rev. Ted Pike
B’nai B’rith International, and its “civil liberties” enforcement arm, ADL, is a worldwide Jewish organization operated entirely by Jews in more than 50 nations. They are the architects of anti-hate laws, ending free speech -- especially for Christians who criticize homosexuality. B'nai B'rith is self-described as the “body and soul of the Jewish world” and "a synonym for organized Jewry." i
Yet as I speak on conservative talk radio, I am increasingly told: “ADL/B’nai B’rith are not Jewish, but Masonic. They have nothing to do with the Jewish people!”
Let’s consider the facts.
To understand today's evil Jewish leadership, we must first understand such leadership as it existed more than 2,000 years ago.
In 597 BC, Chaldean king Nebuchadnezzar led the captive inhabitants of Judah to distant Babylon. Surprisingly, the Jews flourished in that occult and commercial capitol of the ancient world. Bereft of their cherished temple with its priests and religious education, a class of lay teachers called scribes or “sopherim” emerged. Greatly influenced by Babylonian lore and occultry, these Jewish leaders developed an interpretation of the Torah that was not based on literal readings. Instead they used occult techniques like numerology and juxtaposition of Hebrew letters to invent bizarre new interpretations that were unrelated to the text.
When Christ encountered these “scribes and Pharisees” of Palestine, he excoriated them, “Ye have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Matt. 15:6)
The Jewish Cabala
Even before Christ, the Pharisees who migrated from Babylon were developing a secret “hidden knowledge” called Cabala. "[At] the time of Jesus Christ, there existed an assemblage of documents and speculations that were carefully concealed from the multitude ... this kind bore the name of Cabbala,” ii says Hebrew-Christian historian Alfred Edersheim.
Cabala has nothing to do with the theistic God of the Torah, an intelligent and moral Being. In contrast, the scribes of Babylon were influenced by the pantheistic systems of the Far East, such as Hinduism and Buddhism. They accepted the idea that God is not separate from the universe, but is the universe. They taught that His ultimate essence, the “En Sof,” is beyond all rational thought or morality. Instead, God is the purest light -- a light which filters down until it reaches Israel; she is God’s holy shekinah glory on earth, His manifest presence in the earthly levels of His being. Below Israel are the “kliphoth” -- Gentiles, inhabiting the level of demons.
Cabala teaches that Gentiles should be ruled and even destroyed by Israel. The Zohar (light, splendor) is the primary book of Pharisaic, Cabalistic teaching. Of Gentiles, it says, “... 'living soul' iii refers to Israel who are living souls from above and 'cattle' and 'creeping thing' and 'beast of the earth,' to the other peoples who are not 'living soul' ...” “Take the life of the kliphoth and kill them, and you will please God the same as one who offers incense to Him.” iv

Dilemma, p. 111)
Cabala Preaches Revolution
Pantheistic Cabala taught revolution as well as racism. The Pharisees believed that Israel is as fundamental to God and this world’s existence as a proton to an atom. She should dominate the Gentile hordes. The Pharisees lamented that Rome and later, Christianity exercised lordship over the Jews -- an unthinkable blasphemy!
To “restore proper order,” Cabala teaches that through every possible means, Jews should subvert and destroy existing Gentile institutions and society.
The Zohar: “Rabbi Jehuda said to him (Rabbi Chezkia): ‘He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them.’ Rabbi Chezkia asked, ‘How must we fight against them?’ Rabbi Jehuda said, ‘By wise counsel thou shalt war against them.’ (Prov. 24:6) ‘By what kind of war?’ ‘The kind of war that every man must war against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau -- by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we should free ourselves from them and rule over them.’” v The Zohar says that when Israel eventually regains control, the universe will return to pantheistic equilibrium.
During the Crusades, the crusading Knights-Templars occupied the Holy Land and absorbed much Jewish Cabalist lore. They learned from secret societies, such as the Islamic Assassins, how to subvert government and intimidate the masses. Corrupted, the Templars returned home to create Europe’s first highly organized secret society. Being master architects and builders, Templars invaded many Masonic craft guilds of Europe and infused them with Cabalist symbols and subversive intentions.
Fascination with Cabala
Throughout the Middle Ages, Jewish Cabalists sought preeminence over Gentiles through commerce, money-lending, and as practitioners of the black magic they brought from Babylon. But it was through creation of secret societies that their Cabalist influence has been most enduring and revolutionary. In her landmark book Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, historian Nesta Webster (who was publicly praised by Sir Winston Churchill) exhaustively documents Jewish Cabalist influence within those secret societies which spawned the revolutions of the last several centuries.
Here is the briefest overview of her research, along with mine.
Cabalist Jews were a powerful presence in medieval Europe. Later, in the early 16th century, Palestinian mystic Isaac Luria expanded the mystical and magical practice of Cabala. Interest in Cabala intensified among Jews throughout Spain, Italy, Germany, and the Middle East.
Further east, Cabala fueled political and religious subversion that still shakes the world.
In Khazaria, a nation of southern Russia, the “khagan” (king) made Judaism the national religion in 740 AD. By the mid-13th century, most of this nation of two million Jewish proselytes had migrated to adjacent Poland. There, they forgot they were ever Gentiles and became as passionate about Cabala and black arts as authentic Jews. Fantastically rich Cabalist leaders, called “Ba’al-Shems,” claimed to be “temporary messiahs” and commanded vast followings.
Around the middle of the 18th century, renowned Polish Cabalists including Jacob Frank and Jacob Falk moved westward to Germany, France, and England; they astonished high society with their wealth and feats of magic. They were joined by other Jewish Cabalist wonder-workers: from Portugal, the Comte Saint-Germain and a Sicilian magician and Masonic organizer, Cagliostro. There is much evidence that these and other Jewish Cabalists worked in concert, uniting Templar-inspired Masonic societies in Poland, Germany, France, Italy, and England, infusing them with Cabalist lore, symbolism, and missions to overthrow existing order.
In the decades before the French Revolution, Bavarian professor Adam Weishaupt created an incredibly complex, powerful and dangerous secret society, the Illuminati. Luminism advocated the overthrow of all existing thrones and religions. It was as devoid of cabalist elements as Masonry was full of them.
We know a great deal about Luminism because, in 1785, a Bavarian courier of Weishaupt was struck dead by a lightning bolt. Police discovered from documents he carried that Illuminati already dominated Bavarian society, especially German universities. Luminist professors created the "higher criticism" of the Bible so popular among theological liberals today.
Though a Gentile, Weishaupt didn't conceive his revolutionary order alone. Eminent Cabalist and occult historian Bernard Lazarre says, “There were Jews, Cabalistic Jews, around Weishaupt.” vi Certainly, Moses Mendelssohn was a devoted admirer and encourager of Weishaupt; Mendelssohn was a Jewish Cabalist and founder of modern “secular” Reform Judaism (out of which have sprung ADL/B’nai B’rith).
History shows that though the Bavarian Illuminati was subsequently outlawed, Weishaupt worked closely with European Freemasonry for decades. Where his influence ends, no one knows.
We do know one thing: Masonic activity mushroomed during the 17th and 18th centuries. It even captivated some of America’s founding fathers. Cabalistic Luminism actively enlisted illustrious Gentiles. They were encouraged to invent their own lore, Masonic rites and degrees. Yet these useful idiots even today remain ignorant of the hidden hand manipulating their energies and idealism.
Masonic organizations also proliferated during the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, especially in government and international affairs, being a Mason of one sort or another is often vital to rapid success. A selected Yale student like John Kerry or George W. Bush knows that initiation into Skull and Bones means rapid preferment, even enablement to the presidency.
The modern world is now indoctrinated and tied together by Masonic institutions. These include the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderburgers, the World Zionist Congress, ADL/B’nai B’rith, and the government of Israel.
The widespread influence of Masonry leads some to falsely conclude that it is the force behind movements like liberalism, Communism, and globalism. Because ADL/B’nai B’rith is led by Masons, and because many premiers of Israel have been Masons, it's easy to argue that Masons rule Zionism and “secular Judaism.” Yet Masonry has always been only the most superficial manifestation of dark and hidden Judaic ambitions, rooted in Cabala.
Is Cabala relevant to Jews today?
Impeccable Jewish sources say Cabala still holds tremendous appeal for Jews. The preface to the Soncino edition to the Zohar says, “The Zohar appeals to many Jews in a way that makes them regard it as the most sacred of sacred books! For it mirrors Judaism as an intensely vital religion of the spirit. More overpoweringly than any other book or code or even than the Bible, does it give to the Jew the conviction of an inner, unseen spiritual universe -- an eternal moral order (p.12). During the present century, there has been a distinct revival of interest ... in Kabbalah and eminent Jewish scholars have attempted to show that devotees of the mystic side of Jewish life and religion were not, as is popularly supposed, half-crazy visionaries living in a universe peopled by the figments of their own degenerate brains, but men of intellect, scholarship and sound sense who aimed at bringing back to Jewish organized communal life, a breath of that mystic sentiment and emotion which are the aromatic life essence of religion, and which are indispensable to Judaism if it is to continue to play its predestined part of bringing mankind ‘under the wings of the shakinah’ (p.25).” vii
Do Jews or Masons Rule B’nai B’rith?
If ADL/B’nai B’rith were primarily Gentile, a case might be made that Gentile Masons had thrown off Jewish influence. Yet ADL/B’nai B’rith are entirely Jewish, largely consisting of Jews from liberal Reform Judaism. Despite its reputation as secular, Reform Judaism still venerates both the Cabala and Talmud.
It's preposterous to assert that Gentile Masons, originally manipulated toward Jewish ends, now control B’nai B’rith! The truth is that with recent exposure of ADL/B'nai B'rith as architects of hate laws, these Jewish organizations are squirming to get out of the spotlight. They'd be happy to shift blame to Masonry. It is not surprising, then, that such disinformation has made its way onto the airwaves and internet.
What Can We Do?
In response, lovers of truth and freedom should more than ever identify ADL/B'nai B'rith as Jewish.
World Judaism is in a bind. With the B'nai B'rith albatross around its neck, the Jewish religion and people are increasingly viewed with disfavor. This gives lovers of freedom an important advantage. The more B'nai B'rith is publicly identified as Jewish, the more likely it is that worldwide Jewry will pressure it to back off its anti-Christian, pro-hate law agenda. Already, exposing ADL as a persecutor of Christians and architects of hate laws has massively helped defeat ADL's federal hate bill this fall.
B’nai B’rith is the prime mover toward global governance and creator of the 55-nation hate crimes gestapo in Europe (the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). OSCE works toward B’nai B’rith’s ultimate goal: international power to extradite and indict “hate criminals” at will.
If we keep ADL/B’nai B’rith in the hot seat of criticism from their own people, rapid advancement of their globalist, hate crimes agenda may cost them more than they want to risk. What will be the result of such a standoff?
It’s called freedom.
