“Kosher Jesus.”


Rabbi’s ‘Kosher Jesus’ book is denounced as heresy

For an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, Shmuley Boteach has a deeply unorthodox streak.

The bestselling author and TV host has written books on “Kosher Sex,” “Dating Secrets of the 10 Commandments” and his relationship with the late pop star Michael Jackson.

But nothing he has done in a career as one of America’s best-known rabbis has caused quite the stir of his latest book. Even before its publication this month, Boteach came under withering attack in his own Orthodox community, with critics accusing him of exploiting controversy to boost sales and some going so far as to accuse him of heresy.

The title of Boteach’s book? “Kosher Jesus.”

The book focuses on the Christian savior’s Jewishness, portraying him as a hero who stood up to Roman rule of Palestine and paid with his life. In keeping with Jewish theology, it does not accept his resurrection or his divinity. And it emphasizes Boteach’s belief that the New Testament intentionally deflected blame for the crucifixion from the ruling Romans and redirected it — unfairly, Boteach believes — on the shoulders of the Jews.

Given all that, one might expect Christians to take exception. But Boteach’s Jewish critics were way ahead of the curve.

“Boteach’s latest book is apikorsus and must be treated as such,” Rabbi Yitzchok Wolf of Chicago said on an Orthodox news site Jan. 10, using a Hebrew word that roughly translates as heresy. Wolf said he had “utter contempt” for the book — or, at least, for the title.

That, as it turns out, was the only part he had read.

“I am not the consumer that seeks to consume such writings,” he said.

Rabbi Jacob Immanuel Schochet, a prominent Canadian cleric, wrote that the book “poses a tremendous risk to the Jewish community” and proclaimed that it was “forbidden for anyone to buy or read this book, or give its author a platform in any way, shape or form to discuss this topic.”

Both Wolf and Schochet, along with most of the other early critics, are affiliated with Chabad, a large organization of Hasidic Jews known for their strict religious observance. Boteach has a long and tempestuous relationship with the organization.

“I expected ... to be criticized by some Christian clerics,” but not by Jews, Boteach said one night recently, discussing the book before a friendly crowd at a Beverly Hills synagogue.

Boteach is not the first Jew to write about Jesus. His book is based on the work of the late Hyam Maccoby, a Jewish scholar in Britain. Numerous Christian writers have also explored Jesus’ Jewish roots. Still, it is perilous turf for a Jewish writer, especially an Orthodox rabbi.

Boteach says the book is designed to win over both Jews and Christians to a message that he believes has been lost to the mists of history and misunderstanding: Rather than being a divisive figure, Jesus can be a bridge between the faiths.

“We in the Jewish community have a choice,” he said in an interview. “We can either, as has happened for 2,000 years, allow the Christian community to teach us about the Christian Christ, or we can take the initiative and the responsibility of teaching the Christian community about the Jewish Jesus.... He was a Jew, after all.”

Christians, he said, can benefit from a new understanding of Jesus’ humanity. “Embracing Jesus’ Jewishness begins to elucidate his story, his life, his passionate beliefs,” he writes in the book.

That’s fine, said Darrell Bock, a professor of New Testament studies at the Dallas Theological Seminary and a leading authority on the life of Jesus. But, he said, Boteach is wrong in some of his details and not likely to convince Christians, who will be turned off by the presumption that Jesus was fully human.

“The book is a mixed bag,” Bock said. “There are some points that he’s making about the Jewish roots of Jesus … that are certainly the case. But there are other points he is making about Jesus’ mission and the way the Jewish leadership handled him that are probably not an accurate reflection of what took place.”

Jewish critics say they are worried that Christians will use Boteach’s book to try to convert Jews. They also say he is deliberately exploiting controversy.

Boteach insists that is not the case, although he has hardly been shy about it. Then again, shyness is not really a term that applies to a man who claims to be “America’s rabbi.” (That title could change — his name has come up as a potential successor to the chief rabbi of England.)

Boteach was incensed when an Orthodox website refused to publish his response to Wolf’s criticism, saying that it wasn’t appropriate for Jewish children.

“We are the People of the Book,” he said. “We aren’t the people who ban books.”

Boteach said that Booker needed to reverse his long-held position on the Iran nuclear deal. “You’ve got to repudiate your support for the Iran deal, completely,” he said. “If you don’t repudiate your support for the Iran deal, and you don’t change your position on Israel,

I think it will undermine you in this run for the presidency in a very serious way.

Afghan man wanted to murder porn-star daughter: Cops

Mohammed Patman,left, and Darya Khan Safi were arrested on charges of wanting to perform an honour killing on Patmans porn star daughter.
She turned her back on her Muslim faith and embraced life as a porn star.
Now, intelligence officials in Britain say they have arrested two Afghan men who are accused of plotting to kidnap and murder one of their daughters.
Mohammed Patman, 54, and Darya Khan Safi, 49, are accused of tracking Patman’s 25-year-old daughter.
The duo allegedly planned to kill her in Austria or Slovakia, where she now lives with her husband and performs in sexxx-rated movies, the Sunday Express reports.
They were arrested in London and Coventry on Sunday.
“The pair were wanted by the Slovakian authorities for conspiring to murder the 25-year-old woman, who was living in Austria and working in Slovakia at a company she ran with her husband,” a National Crime Agency spokesman said.
“Armed Operations Unit officers undertook surveillance on the two men as they prepared to make multiple trips to both Austria and Slovakia where, investigators believe, they carried out their own surveillance on the victim.”
The spokesman added: “They were seen blacking out the windows and swapping the tires for winter tires on a vehicle they subsequently used to drive to both countries.”
Telephone and Internet records allowed detectives to connect the dots.

According to the Sunday Express, the woman moved to Slovakia in 2017 after meeting her husband. She later converted to Judaism.
The couple ran an erotic photography and adult film business. She has starred in a number of the raunchy romps.
Patman and Safi are in custody in London. The two had been granted asylum in the U.K. for assisting the British military during fighting in Afghanistan.
Another woman with Middle Eastern heritage was also targeted for her career in porn.
Beirut-born Mia Khalifa was threatened with death after she wore a hijab during a porn scene. She has since left the business.

'TRICKED WITH EMPLOYMENT': Nigerian police free 19 women and girls from Lagos 'baby factories'

LAGOS — Police in Nigeria’s biggest city, Lagos, have freed 19 women and girls who had mostly been abducted and impregnated by captors planning to sell their babies.
The girls and women, aged from 15 to 28, had been brought from all over Nigeria with promises of work, Lagos police said on Monday. Four babies were also found.
“Baby factories,” as such premises are widely known, are most common in parts of eastern Nigeria.
“The young women were mostly abducted by the suspects for the purpose of getting them pregnant and selling the babies to potential buyers.
The girls were tricked with employment as domestic staff in Lagos,” said Lagos police spokesman Bala Elkana.
“Boys are sold for $1,630 and girls for $980.”
The girls and women were brought to Lagos from the southern and eastern states of Rivers, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Abia and Imo.
Elkana said the raid had taken place on Sept. 19 but had been kept secret to enable the police to apprehend suspects.
Two women aged 40 and 54 were arrested in connection with the case and police were still looking for a third.
One of the freed women, who did not want to be named, said she had been impregnated by her boyfriend and told by her aunt that there was a job for her in Lagos.
She said a woman to whom she was introduced had induced her labour when she was seven months pregnant.
“After being in labour for three days, that was when police raided the place and took all of them.

The baby came out weak and finally died,” she told Reuters.
Elkana said the state criminal investigation department would take over the case and was working with other agencies to resettle the women and girls and their babies.
Last week, around 400 boys and men, some as young as five and many in chains and scarred from beatings, were rescued from a building in the northern city of Kaduna that purported to be an Islamic school.

Bangladesh sentences 16 to death for killing teen in harassment case

DHAKA — The principal of a religious school in Bangladesh was among 16 people sentenced to death on Thursday for the murder of a teenage girl who refused to withdraw a complaint of sexual harassment against him, the public prosecutor said.
The killers poured kerosene over Nusrat Jahan, 18, and set her on fire on the roof of her madrasa in April in the southeastern district of Feni. Police said in their charge-sheet the murder was carried out on the orders of the principal.
“The judgment proves that no one is above the law,” public prosecutor Hafez Ahmed told reporters after the court verdict.
He said the defense lawyers had tried unsuccessfully to establish that Jahan had committed suicide.
Defense lawyer Giasuddin Nannu said his clients will challenge the verdict in the High Court.

Jahan’s death sparked public outrage and mass demonstrations calling for her killers to be punished. She had faced pressure to withdraw a complaint to police in March accusing the school principal of attempted rape, her family said.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had met her family and vowed to bring the killers to justice.
“I can’t forget her for a moment. I still feel the pain that she went through,” mother Shirin Akhtar said as she burst into tears at her home following the verdict.
Jahan’s brother, Mahmudul Hasan Noman, demanded that the death sentences be carried out swiftly and sought protection for his family against reprisals.
“We live in fear. We were threatened even today in the courtroom,” Noman said.
Bangladesh has seen a dramatic rise in the number of rape cases in recent months, with 217 women and children raped in September, the highest in any single month since 2010, according to a report published by Bangladesh Mahila Parishad, a women’s right group.
Many more cases go unreported because women fear being stigmatized. Rights activists attribute the increasing number of rapes to a lack of awareness, a culture of impunity, moral decadence, and people of influence protecting suspected rapists for political reasons.

More than 200,000 children married in US over the last 15 years

Girls as young as 10 were among the minors who wedded under legal loopholes


More than 200,000 children were married in the US over the past 15 years, new figures have revealed.
Three 10-year-old girls and an 11-year-old boy were among the youngest to wed, under legal loopholes which allow minors to marry in certain circumstances.
The minimum age for marriage across most of the US is 18, but every state has exemptions – such as parental consent or pregnancy – which allow younger children to tie the knot.
In May, the high-profile Republican governor for New Jersey declined to sign into law a measure that would have made his state the first to ban child marriage without exception. Chris Christie claimed it would conflict with religious customs.

At least 207,468 minors married in the US between 2000 and 2015, according to data compiled by Unchained At Last, a group campaigning to abolish child marriage, and investigative documentary series Frontline.
The true figure is likely to be much higher because 10 states provided no or incomplete statistics.
Fraidy Reiss, the founder of Unchained at Last, said she was "literally shaking" when she first obtained data for New Jersey, where her group is based.
Nearly 3,500 children married in the state between 1995 and 2012.
“That number was so much higher than I had thought it would be,” she told Frontline. “Then, the fact that the children were as young as 13 and the fact that it was mostly girls married to adult men.”

Christians in Israel face rise in hate crimes

Al Jazeera English

Christians in Israel face an escalation of attacks by religious extremists. Churches have been vandalised and the top official of the Catholic Church in the town where Jesus is believed to have lived has been threatened.

Some Church officials blame Israeli schools and politicians for supporting discrimination against the religious minority group. Al Jazeera's Nick Schifrin reports from Nazareth.

Overall, we rate Al Jazeera Left-Center biased, based on story selection that slightly favors the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to failed fact checks that were not corrected and misleading extreme editorial bias that favors Qatar.
