Deranged rabbi says kids born blind viewed porn in a previous life

Deranged rabbi says kids born blind viewed porn in a previous life March 12, 2019

SOME mothers do have ’em – and in case of Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi, above, one wishes that he’d never been born at all because of his outrageously offensive views.

Yet this week, despite deep revulsion expressed by many Jews about his coming to Britain, he is scheduled to give three lectures at synagogues in London on March 15 and 16.

Mizrachi has been slammed by the UK’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and others for his views.

In 2016 hundreds signed a petition (closed after 846 put their names to it) calling for Mizrachi to be banned from the UK because he was  regarded as a “hate preacher”. Earlier, in 2014, he toured the UK lecturing schoolchildren and has since been seeking a return.

The petition detailed some of this clown’s “cultish, divisive and contemptible” views that include the following:

• That children with Downs Syndrome and autism are being punished for their sins in a previous life for gossiping.

• That children who are born with blindness are being punished for watching pornography in previous lives.

• That women contract breast and cervix cancers as a result of sexual licentiousness

• That men contract prostate and brain cancers as a result of sexual licentiousness and what he calls “dirty thoughts”.

• That crime has increased in America as the result of the emancipation of African-Americans.

• That people cease to be religious because they are influenced by gay university professors.

In 2016, Mirvis said:

We do not expect that any of our Rabbis or communities would wish to host a speaker  … with views which cause widespread offence and upset.

Mizrachi , who claims to have “cured” hundred of their homosexual tendencies, labels his critics “worse than Hitler”.

In a YouTube video, he labels gay people as “sick” and “disgusting” and “criminal” – and urges them to get back in the closet:

Make sure that this closet goes in a bigger closet so if you wanna come out you’ll still be in.

They include Novominsker Rebbe, President of Agudath Israel of America, who said Mizrachi’s claims were :

Demonstrably false, profoundly offensive and extremely hurtful.

He is due to give three lectures in the UK, including one called “Defeating the Modern Day Amelek (enemies of Israel)” and another called “True Submission to Hashem’s Will.”

UPDATE: The Times (paywall) reports that Mizrachi , 50, faces being banned from entering Britain today over his rhetoric against disabled people, Holocaust victims and homosexuals.

As he was  prepared for a speaking tour last night, Home Office officials were studying his record. Sara Khan, the anti-extremism tsar, warned that his “appalling statements” would have a divisive impact on society.

The Charity Commission said that it would ask trustees of a synagogue to explain its decision to host the rabbi, who is known for disparaging comments against secular Jews, Christianity and supporters of Palestinians.

UPDATE II: He has been denied entry to the UK. Jewish News reports today that a Home Office spokesperson said:

When the purpose of someone’s visit to this country is to spread hatred, we can and will stop them entering Britain. This Government upholds free speech but we will not let it be used to excuse detestable views that directly contravene our values. We take the threat from extremism seriously and we will challenge it wherever we see it.

David Toube, Director of Policy at the anti-extremist Quilliam Foundation, said:

Mizrachi was prevented from boarding his plane to the UK. I applaud the Home Office’s decision and am proud the mainstream Jewish community has been united in its opposition to this man.

    What did he do in a past life to be sent back as a hate filled moron?

  • CoastalMaineBird

    I got it.
    It’s a contest, right ?
    There’s gotta be a contest.

    It’s called “Quien es mas stupido”, or “Hold mah beer and watch this”, or something?

    Who’s holding this contest, and what is the prize?

    More importantly, WHEN IS IT OVER ? ? ?

  • phatkhat

    I didn’t know Jews believed in reincarnation.

  • Barry Duke
  • Yet another fucking asshole to be added to the collection. As if we had not enough with the Christian and Muslim versions.

  • Jim Jones

    Sometimes I just want to drive a full manure spreader past such assholes – and dump shit all over them.

  • barriejohn

    My first reaction was: “What did people with no intelligence do in a previous existence?”

  • barriejohn

    “And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind?” (John 9:2 RV)

    The answer is quite enlightened for the times, and another of those statements that Jesus, if he existed (First Century Zealot), almost certainly wouldn’t have come out with.

  • Illithid

    That children who are born with blindness are being punished for watching pornography in previous lives.

    99% of us are not blind. Fail.

    That men contract prostate and brain cancers as a result of sexual licentiousness and what he calls “dirty thoughts”.

    I’d have been dead decades ago.

  • Brian Davis

    That was my first reaction also. But then I searched for “judaism and reincarnation”. It turns out that it’s a thing for some Jewish sects.

  • phatkhat

    I read Barry Duke’s link and it was quite interesting. AND complicated. Religions come up with some really weird stuff.

  • phatkhat

    Maybe they feel left out. (No, that was not “anti-semitic. Just anti-religion.)

  • plusaf

    He could be the Poster Boy to promote Atheism….
    What a shithead!

  • Atrus

    I came down to the comments to ask about this exact thing. I didn’t know that some jews believed in reincarnation before this.

  • Broga

    Interesting!. Could he now provide his evidence for that ridiculous and cruel statement.

  • Broga

    What about, “honi soit qui mal y pense.”

  • Raymond Metcalfe

    What a stupid waste of a skin a complete oxygen thief. I would like to get this moron and others like bird shit and banana man along with a few of the more loony Muslim “scholars” and lock them in a room together and see what arguments they have it could make a fortune on some reality tv channel

  • TheBookOfDavid

    And not even self consistent within its own framework of beliefs, judging by the author’s example in the final page.

  • TheBookOfDavid

    And what about those of us born with hairy palms? I wonder what past life sin we committed.

  • TheBookOfDavid

    Mizrachi , who claims to have “cured” hundred of their homosexual tendencies, labels his critics “worse than Hitler”.

    He went on to say, “Also, Hitler was just a misunderstood and overenthusiastic idealist, who should be commended for carrying out Hashem’s judgement on homosexuals and errant Jews for past life sins.”

    Edit: to close tag

  • Aard

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but is reincarnation a part of any branch of Judaism? If this is not the case, how can any condition of life be in reparation for something done in a nonexistant previous life?

    And if Mizrachi’s delusions are valid, what excuse does he have for being born into this life without a brain?

  • towercam

    And it was too tough for you to reveal the biblical answer?? Sheesh!

  • Judgeforyourself37

    It is not mandatory that someone be batsh%t crazy to become a cleric, but it certainly does help them along their path.

  • barriejohn

    And it was too tough for you to look it up?

    “Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.” (Next verse)

    I thought everyone knew that!

  • barriejohn

    That’s exactly what some Jews believe. Religion truly fucks up people’s minds.

  • BlueJew

    That’s a great idea. I would actually pay money to watch that shit.

  • Jack Korn

    This filthy swine needs to be run out of every city and town,

  • tsuterri

    He is not a RABBI he was never ordained – Please do better research when writing ANY articles. – you should make a retraction.

  • TheOccasionalAtheist

    Your No True Jew™ argument is hilarious.
    Please do better.

  • Daniel Kalban

    He is a disgrace to the Jewish people

  • Daniel Kalban

    If he wasn’t ordained as a Rabbi; he doesn’t have the right to call himself one.

  • TheOccasionalAtheist

    What credentials do you have to determine this? Are you the king of the Jews or something?

  • Dominic Pasquarosa

    I’d like to hear what this idiot would say about himself from a reincarnation point. He talks like he’s perfect, the messiah is suppose to be!!!!!! AAAAAAAlleluia brother!

  • Robert Conner

    OK, so what did six million Jews do in a previous life to get themselves murdered in concentration camps? And were the Nazis therefore instruments of God?
