Is this some self-hating thing? I mean I see "Jewish studies" at a goy religious college (Or maybe Secular so-called religious college.) and the Federation. We know those things are usually self-hating.

From the other post of this user, I can tell that this Israeli so-called professor is indeed a self-hating Jew.

I suspect this user is a troll...

I say this because the users name 'yahtruth' sounds like the name of a xtian missionary. We know they use the name 'yah' as the name of Hashem, and they believe they have the 'truth'.

By attacking the Torah and the Oral tradition, they are trying to prove that Judaism is not the word of Hashem.

I will be the 1st to say this troll should be banned.

There is nothing to argue about here. We know that people are called 'professor' without having any real understanding of the topic they are professing. I read a little about what was written and I thought this is only the opinion of an opinionated, and biased, fool.

We have heard these ridiculous claims before, and they have been repudiated. Amalek tries to cast doubt in the mind of the Heaven fearing Jew, and this user sounds like a clear Amalekian type of individual.

 
You shall make yourself the Festival of Sukkoth for seven days, when you gather in [the produce] from your threshing floor and your vat.And you shall rejoice in your Festival-you, and your son, and your daughter, and your manservant, and your maidservant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are within your cities

The Hebros also use the name Y-h. Don't the Rastafarians say Jah? They're basically a cult of the Hebros who believe the Emperor of Ethiopia was an incarnation of Yeshu. It reminds me of how he Nation of Islam believes Elijah Mohammad was an incarnation of Allah.

There is an anti religious secular web site that uses the word emet, Hebrew for Truth as part of the name of their web site in order to try to gain credibility.
My hunch is that fans of  the heretic Elior, are connected to an anti-religious, secular group and not missionaries for X-tianity or a cult.

""Yahtruth" - the names tells me all I need to know about the nature of that person. Jews don't use such names for fear of violating the third commandment among other concerns.
