Taken from here: Babylonian Talmud Megilah 9a
Scrolls of the Scripture may be written in any language, and our Rabbis permitted them to be written in Greek’ They permitted! This would imply that the First Tanna forbade it! What I must say therefore is, ‘Our Rabbis permitted them to be written only in Greek’. And it goes on to state, ‘R. Judah said: When our teachers permitted Greek, they permitted it only for a scroll of the Torah’. This was on account of the incident related in connection with King Ptolemy, as it has been taught: ‘It is related of King Ptolemy that he brought together seventy-two elders and placed them in seventy-two [separate] rooms, without telling them why he had brought them together, and he went in to each one of them and said to him, Translate for me the Torah of Moses your master. God then prompted each one of them and they all conceived the same idea and wrote for him……
It was customary, in Talmudic times, for those suffering from jaundice to drink donkey urine as a cure.
The sages asked: is one permitted to drink donkey urine, said to cure jaundice? Why should one ask specifically about donkey urine? It is clear to us that the urine of camels and of horses is permitted for drinking since their urine is clear and is, in essence, the water which they drank. Water went in, and water came out.

“The modern Jew is the product of the Talmud…”
– “Babylonian Talmud”, published by the Boston Talmud Society, p. XII
The Jews refer to the remainder of Earths inhabitants, the non-Jewish peoples, as “Gentiles”, “Goyim”.
Let’s see what the Jewish Talmud teaches the Jews concerning the non-Jewish majority, i.e. those who are not part of Jahve’s “Chosen People”:
“The Jews are called human beings, but the non-Jews are not humans. They are beasts.” (more…)
Taken from here. Here are some quotes from the Talmud:
As long as a person is unsuccessful in his purpose in this world, the Holy One, blessed be He, uproots him and replants him over and over again. (Zohar I 186b)
All souls are subject to reincarnation; and people do not know the ways of the Holy One, blessed be He! They do not know that they are brought before the tribunal both before they enter into this world and after they leave it; they are ignorant of the many reincarnations and secret works which they have to undergo, and of the number of naked souls, and how many naked spirits roam about in the other world without being able to enter within the veil of the King’s Palace. Men do not know how the souls revolve like a stone that is thrown from a sling. But the time is at hand when these mysteries will be disclosed. (Zohar II 99b)
A friend of mine named “Abdullah” wrote a thought-provoking article which I would like to share:
Another article from ‘Abdullah’:
I find it truly amazing at times how people do not know their own religions beliefs yet feel fit to criticize the religious beliefs of others. Many times a person will attack a religion such as Islam for a trivial matter yet do not know that their religion may teach the same thing! The Bible is quite clear to Jews and Christians that a equal standard should be applied to all things, and that if one says that a certain practise make a religion false that same standard should be applied to their religion as well. Let us start off by looking at what the Bible says about the standards we use in the following verse:
I was on a Mainstream Jewish site, called “Judaism 101 and I was surprised to see what they had under the section “What does the Talmud say about Jesus?”:
” Rambam and many other prominent Jewish scholars believed that the stories of Jesus are based on Yeshu ben Pandeira, also known as Yeshu ha-Notzri (”Jesus the Branch,” a reference to Isaiah 11:1, a passage about the messiah).”
The position of the Talmud in the Judaeic tradition:
“The Talmud is probably the most important Jewish book, even more important than the Bible, even though the Bible is older and holier. The Jewish way of doing things (halakhah) is based on the Talmud much more than on the Bible. Many of the ideas and stories of Jewish life come to us from the Talmud.”
(KOLEL: The Adult Centre for Liberal Jewish Learning)
“The Talmud was created by the Jewish people and the Talmud has, in turn, molded them as a nation.”
“… Talmud constitute the backbone of diverse Jewish knowledge..”
(Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz)
A hypertext version of the Jews’ College (London) translation of the Babylonian Talmud: Tractates Sanhedrin, Berakoth, Shabbath, Yebamoth, Kethuboth, Nedarim, Nazir, Sotah, Gittin, Baba Kamma, Baba Mezi’a, Baba Bathra, Abodah Zarah, Horayoth, Niddah, and Tohoroth. The Jews’ College translation was published through Soncino Press between 1935 and 1948. It was the first complete English translation, produced by the most authoritative Judaic scholars in the world. It is the gold standard of English Talmuds, but chances are you won’t find it in your local public library! The link is here: TALMUD LINK
