“The Lord your God has chosen you (Jews) as his own possession, above all the people of the earth” - Deut 7:6

This verse clearly sums up the obvious fact that the Biblical god, Yahweh is essentially a Jewish deity. By repeatedly stating that Jews are his people, Yahweh implies that the rest of us gentiles aren't his people. Consequently the Biblical Jewish god not only instigated Jewish seizure and occupation of non-Jewish land in Canaan, he also instructed the Jews to exterminate all non-Jews in therein:

“In the cities of the nations the lord your God gives you as inheritance, do not leave anything that breathes. Completely destroy the Hittites, Canaanites, Perizites, Hivites and Jebusites as your lord commands” - Deut 20: 16-17

“So the lord our God also gave into our hands Og King of Bashan…we took all his (sixty) cities. We completely destroyed them, every man, woman and child” - Deut 3-6.

“Then they (Israelites) utterly destroyed all in the city (Jericho) both men and women, young and old” - Josh 6:21 .

By their own account in the Old testament, the Jews were probably the first people in recorded history to perpetrate genocide - the same offence Hitler was accused of in the Jewish holocaust of WWII.

The gentile Canaanite holocaust by Jews cannot be right any more than the Jewish holocaust by Nazis. Christians and orthodox Jews justify these biblical atrocities on the grounds that the gentile Canaanites were unrighteous.

Unlike the Jews who were Yahweh's “chosen people”, the Canaanite gentiles were not guided by the 'God of Israel'. So how could they have been 'righteous' by the standards of the Jewish god? Interestingly, the Bible informs us that even the favoured Jews were frequently unrighteous and unfaithful to their god, yet he never ordered non-Jews to exterminate them.

Like Canaanites, we gentile Africans aren't Yahweh's people. So the Jewish deity had no qualms using us as expendable fodder in his power trip show-off to impress his people:

'The Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh for I have hardened his heart that I may show these signs (10 plagues) among them, and that you may tell your sons and grandsons how I have made sport of the Egyptians…that you may know I am Lord' – Exodus 10:1-2.

One is not entirely surprised at Yahweh's callous sadism that he hardened Pharaoh's heart not to let Israelites go, only for the wickedly insane Jewish god to unjustly punish our ancient Egyptian cousins with plagues, just so the vain insecure quasi-deity can massage his narcissist ego and gloat “that you may know I am lord”.

This same malevolent Judeo-Christian deity massacred 70,000 innocent Jews because David conducted a census (2 Sam 24:15, 1 Chron 21:14), which according to the version in 2nd Samuel was prompted by Yahweh himself:

'The anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he incited David against them saying “go number Israel & Judah”' – 2 Sam 24:1

Even the Bible acknowledges Yahweh's irrational cruelty as it informs us that “the lord repented of the evil” (2 Sam 24:16, 1 Chron 21:15).

In Leviticus 25-44, the supposedly impartial universal Christian god endorsed Jewish enslavement of non-Jews, but the same Bible would have us believe our ancient Egyptian cousins perpetrated an abominable crime in enslaving Jews.

Contrary to the Biblical account, slavery (a common practice in the ancient world) in ancient Egypt was non-racial. Egyptians, Jews and other minorities were slaves and slave masters alike.

Instead of drawing inspiration from our ancient Egyptian cousins who proudly called their country, Kemet (land of Blacks) and were among the pioneers of human civilization, we Africans have been brainwashed to despise them by bogus alien dogmas (Christianity & Islam).

The Jewish bias of this biblical God is also evident in the New testament. Mathew 15:22-28 tells the story of a Canaanite (gentile) woman who approached Jesus for help. He ignored her but when she persisted Jesus responded:

“I am sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 15:24) and as such he continued – “it is not right to take the children's (Jews') bread and cast it to their dogs (gentiles)”.

Math 15:26. Mark 7:25-29 recounts the same story but the woman was Greek not Canaanite. Which version is correct?

When Jesus sent out his disciples on evangelism, he specifically instructed them not to preach to non-Jews:

“Do not go among the gentiles or Samaritans, go rather to the lost sheep of Israel” - Matt 10:5-6.

In Luke 14:16-24, Jesus narrated the parable of a rich man who invited several of his rich friends (Jews) to a wedding banquet. When they failed to show up giving various excuses, the rich man invited the street beggars and cripples (non-Jews) so that the prepared food & drinks would not be wasted.

Obviously if the rich man's friends (Jews) had honoured his invitation, the beggars and cripples (we gentiles) would not have been invited. Had the Jews accepted Jesus, Christianity would not have reached we second class creations of their bigoted racist deity.

This point is reiterated even in the oft quoted verse which Christians use to proclaim the universality of their false dogma:

“He came unto his own (Jews) and his own people rejected him, but all who receive him and believe in his name…blah blah blah” - John 1:11-12.

In essence spiritual salvation for we gentiles was an afterthought by Yahweh to spite Jews who rejected Jesus:

“Salvation has come to the gentiles to make Israel jealous” – Romans 11:11.

Evidently the racist Jesus had no regard for we non-Jews - he called us dogs (Matt 15:26), likened us to beggars and cripples (Luke 14:21), and forbade his disciples to preach to us (Matt 10:5-6).

The Gospel of Luke further informs us that Jesus came to establish a Jewish kingdom like king David:

“The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David” - Luke 1:32

Of course David ruled a Jewish kingdom, not a global one for all humanity. Furthermore, the Old Testament prophecies purportedly about Jesus assert that the expected messiah was for the benefit of Israel not the entire world:

“Behold, the days are coming” says the Lord, “when I will raise a righteous branch from the house of David. He shall reign as king...In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will dwell securely…” – Jeremiah 23:3-6

In his abortive insurrection to establish the prophesied Jewish Kingdom, the biblical Jesus was arrested and charged with treason for attempting to seize power as “King of the Jews”:

And Pilate asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus replied "Yes, It is as you say" - Mark 15:2, Luke 23:3, Matt 27:11

It is irrelevant whether he was referring to a heavenly or an earthly kingdom; Jesus' claim of sovereignty was over Jews, not the entire humanity.

In the fictitious after-life paradise Christians call heaven, Jews are given preference, 144,000 of them - 12000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel (Rev 7:4-8).

The remaining gentiles had to pathetically grovel for attention and suck up to Yahweh by wailing “salvation belongs to God” (Rev 7:10). Even then, the elders of heaven didn't recognize them, as the elders enquired:

“Who are these people (gentiles) clothed in white and where are they from?” (Rev 7:13).

Although there might be occasional references to mankind in the bible, the overwhelming preponderance of biblical evidence affirm that Christianity was intended for Jews.
