Jewish-supporting Christians should be aware that the Jewish word for Jesus, “Yeshu,” is a Talmudic acronym for “Yimach Shmo V’Zichro” — “May his name and memory be obliterated.”
This shocking confession was contained in a report in the Jewish Press by regular columnist Yori Yanover, in an attempt to blame Arabs for the latest anti-Christian arson and vandalism at the Trappist Monastery in Latrun, in Ayalon Valley.
This attack saw the monastery door set on fire and graffiti left on the walls saying that “Jesus was a monkey” and the names of recently-evacuated Jewish extremist illegal settlements in the West Bank, “Maoz Esther” and “Ramat Migron.”
According to a report in the Israeli Ynet News, the “police have been preparing for “price tag” actions by extreme right-wing activists, which are usually directed at Palestinians, following the evacuation of the West Bank outpost of Migron in recent days.
“The targeting of a Christian symbol has the potential of making waves in the Western world, which is widely covering the situation in Jerusalem and its surroundings.
“This isn’t the first time a Christian site has been the target of such an operation. In February, vandals daubed ‘Death to Christianity’ on a Jerusalem church and slashed the tires of three vehicles parked nearby.”
However, the article in the Jewish Press, titled “Monastery Door Set on Fire and Jesus Called ‘Monkey’ – But Are You Sure Jewish Kids Did It?” by Yanover claims that the attacks are actually carried out by Arabs.
As part of his obviously flawed argument—because there is no history at all of Arab attacks upon Christians and Christian churches in Israel or Palestine, and plenty of evidence for Jewish attacks—Yanover says that the spelling of the word “Jesus” on the Trappist Monastery was Arabic, not Hebrew, even though it was written in Hebrew.
“They spelled it ‘Yeshua’ which is the Arab-Christian way of spelling that man’s name,” Yanover wrote.
“We call him Yeshu, which is a Talmudic acronym for ‘Yimach Shmo V’Zichro’ — May his name and memory be obliterated.”
