Julius Rosenberg & the Talmudic Law of the Moser

Unsolicited article submitted to the Op Ed Editor of the New York Times, 19 September 2008, not published

The earth shaking confession of 91 year old Morton Sobell that he and Julius Rosenberg were indeed spies and not victims of a politically motivated prosecution of idealistic Communist sympathizers affords Americans a golden opportunity to diagnose and treat a chronic national ill, the Talmudic Law of the Moser. Moser is Hebrew for informer, and this law prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew directly or indirectly. This was the dynamic steering captured members of their spy ring.

Rosenberg himself gives us a very good example. Two weeks before his and his wife’s 19 June 1953 execution, US Attorney General Herbert Brownell sent Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons David Bennett to persuade Rosenberg to cooperate with the government in its investigation of the spy ring. Acceptance of such offer would have been good grounds for clemency, but Rosenberg rejected this.

In his 5 June letter to his lawyer Emanuel H. Bloch about his meeting with Bennett, “Julie” wrote: “In so many words he said only if I become an informer, do and say things that satisfy the officials in Washington, then they will let us live.” By “they” he meant the “goyim” in Washington. And being an “informer” (moser) is anathema to a Talmud Jew. Rosenberg preferred death to being an informer, which would have subjected him and his family to shunning by the Jewish community, despoliation and even non-judicial execution.

The Talmudic Law of the Moser is like the Mafioso Code of Omertà. It is the foundation for a conspiracy of silence. As such, this law is diametrically opposed to the adversarial process of our legal system. It frustrates a true discovery process. It violates the concept of equality under the law and establishes a subtle, two tiered system for Jews and non-Jews. And the Law of the Moser prevents or inhibits frank exchange of information within our intelligence and law enforcement communities.

Above all else, this law can determine which news is “fit to print”! The test for truth has become, is it good for Israel?

Everybody knows American history is terminally under revisionist deconstruction. The JFK assassination, the USS Liberty incident and 9/11 confront us with significant prevarications, distortions and omissions in the official reports. To what extent does the Talmudic Law of the Moser explain this phenomenon? How does it work to keep us jamming the square peg of Zionism into the round hole of Palestine? How does this law conduce to manipulating the minds of Americans with propaganda? Before we set boundaries over there, we must first draw the line over here as to what is acceptable and what is not. We ignore the Talmudic Law of the Moser and its pernicious effects at our national peril.
