The book The Cross of Bethlehem: The Memoirs of a Refugee’ – is story of a Israeli military officer, Roy Tov, who converted to Christianity while caught in the crosshairs between a country that demands total obedience, even if that means firing on rock-throwing women and children, and following his conscience. In reality, it’s a story of a person who learned the evilness of Zionism first hand while living in Jewish kibbutz built on land stolen from native Palestinian.
In November 2010, Christopher Bollyn, an American investigating journalist and author interviewed Roy Tov.
“Americans are generally quite naïve about Israel and how the Zionist state really functions. The general ignorance about Israel is primarily due to the fact that most people are woefully misinformed about the Middle East having grown up consuming news and entertainment products provided by Hollywood and the Zionist-controlled media. This has resulted in a very significant part of the American population suffering from an extremely distorted point-of-view. Prior to 9/11 this may not have been a matter of great concern, but with the U.S. involved in at least two long-term wars in the Middle East, Americans can no longer afford to be blissfully ignorant about the Zionist state of Israel and its criminal network that are the root of the conflict in the region, Roy told Christopher Bollyn.
Roy Tov’s grandparents were German Jews who in early 20th century migrated to Poland and later to Argentina and finally settled in a kabbutz in Israel. Roy had a career at Israel’s highest scientific institution and served in top-secret military units. had a career at Israel’s highest scientific institution and having served in top-secret military units. During his career, he was invited by Dow Chemical to their European headquarters and asked to transfer classified American missile technology developed by Dow to Israel. Until then Roy’s peers did not know that he had converted to Christianity. When he refused to return to Israel, he became Mossad’s marked man. Roy currently lives in Bolivia.
Roy wrote in ‘The Cross of Bethlehem’: “Along with foreign doctrines brought from Babylon, the Pharisees adopted the old Hindu symbol for spiritual strength as their own. To ingratiate it in the eyes of the people they called it the Star of David, or in direct translation from Hebrew, “David’s Shield.” To justify their foreign beliefs, they claimed they were given orally to Moses in Sinai, a false claim which is not mentioned in the Bible. Without understanding this oral tradition, they asserted, you could not interpret the Bible correctly. Thus the Pharisees stole the Bible from the people. Jesus tried to explain that the correct interpretation is the one arising from faith and love, not the monstrous apparatus based on personal convenience created by the rabbis. He said people were equal many years before the false socialist doctrines made a joke of that idea”.
According to Roy – “The Israeli occupation of Palestine is the core problem in the Middle East and the Pharisaic state of Israel is the cause of that unresolved Gordian knot in the Holy Land. In these lines and pages you put your finger directly on the crux of the problem: Evil men, who claim to be the authority of Mosaic Law, have stolen the Bible from the Jewish people and control them by keeping them in a rabbinical “Auschwitz of the mind”.
In epilogue Roy had concluded in the book: “Maybe the criminal society that hunts me will cease to exist. Perhaps it will transform itself into a decent civilization. Either way, it will not continue to exist under its current laws. The record of history bears witness that criminal regimes do not remain in power forever.”
