The Conscience.—It may seem a strange assertion that the conscience of man needs purifying from defilement, for, regard it in what light we may, it is the most sacred and Divine thing in humanity, and the source of all that is sacred and noble in man’s nature. On it are founded the sanctities of home, the fellowships of brotherhood, and the. But surely the Bible is a religious book and as surely conscience is the spirit that hovers over the depths of Jewish law and lore. It is difficult to define conscience. There is a mystique about conscience, a spiritual dimension that carries with it a sense of inner compulsion, something I have to do or say not out of submission to an outer.

“The book represents an important contribution to the recent scholarship on Nostra Aetate and the development of Catholic teaching on Judaism. Tobias’ book also gives an inside account of the pre-history and history of Nostra Aetate thanks to his interviews with Gregory Baum and Thomas Stransky.” (Massimo Faggioli, Studies in Christian-Jewish Relations, Vol. 13 (1), ). But Torah is a book of sacred ends. Whatever our partisan politics, the underlying spiritual question remains, whether we succumb to the wisdom of the Social Darwinists and turn our children back to the dark laws of the jungle or retain our hard-earned fidelity to the Jewish covenant of conscience.

  The book of Joshua, with its alleged annihilation of the seven nations, became no more than a historical test, not a prescription for contemporary policy. Since in Judaism, divine revelation is subordinate to human interpretation, the history of Jewish exegesis records the evolution of Judaism's moral conscience.   Dr. Medoff, the director of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, is a historian and author of more than 20 books about Jewish history, Zionism and the Holocaust.

-Paperback. AU $ I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or against them. But since I learned that these miserable and accursed people do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have published this little book, so that I might be found among those who opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews who warned the Christians to be on their guard against them.

Commentators, focusing on the role of the Jewish Councils who helped the Nazis, have often ignored the radically defective aspects of Arendt’s book: her repetitive portrayal of Eichmann as a comic character and as a man without a conscience, and her flawed concept of the banality of evil.

Jews were likened to rats and other vermin: “They carry disease,” warned the narration. Such films, which depicted the Jews as a plague to be eradicated, hinted darkly at the real-life horrors.

The book is less about Nazi concepts of conscience as it is about the subversion of the German conscience. The results of this process are both subtle and disturbing. One day in a Nazi Youth member saw the Gestapo removing Jewish friend and the rest of the village's Jews and thought to himself, not how unfortunate that this was happening.

Christians used the Bible to justify Crusades, book burnings, Inquisitions and, like the Jews, exterminating any who spread false doctrines. An estimated six million witches (a number contested, but even one is too many) accused of trafficking in demons were burned alive to obey the Bible’s urging to “offer up a pleasing smell to the Lord.”.
