I agree, the Stones’ Sympathy for the Devil is possibly an antisemitic song.

I agree, The Rolling Stones’ Sympathy for the Devil is likely an antisemitic song.


While at first the song seems just a celebration of the devil, when reviewing the examples, most of the events mentioned in history, include some Jewish involvement. These are events about which some people say “the Jews were behind it”. Of course, this might not be true for all examples, but of all the examples chosen “some people say”. While it is well-hidden and indirect, the song seems antisemitic.


Sympathy for the Devil – The Rolling Stones

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste
And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Jesus Christ was killed by crucifiction, which is his moment of “doubt and pain”. The Last Supper of Jesus (on White Thursday, in the evening) was a Pesach meal (during Pesach Jews celebrate the exodus from Egypt of the Jewish people). According to the Bible, Jesus died after the Sanhedrin, the Jewish Council, had convinced Roman leader Pontius Pilates how Jesus needed to be stopped. The Sunday before, on the 8th of the month Nissan, Jesus had visited Jeruzalem and decided to fight the traders and bankers out of the temple. This made him rather unpopular with the Jewish Council. He was crucified on a Friday, five days later, one day after his Last Supper.

There is some discussion about the “exact date” the crucifiction would have taken place according to the Bible. Five days after the 8th of Nissan, is the 13th of the 7th month. Others value the meal of the Last Supper itselfs a more reliable interpretation, which would be be the Lamb sacrifies on the 14th of Nissan (14/7). The day of the 13th in the evening, is already the 14th of Nissan according to the Jewish calendre. Three days after his crucifiction, Jesus would have risen from his tomb (the 17th of the 7th month).

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain 

The process of the Russian revolution started in a way on Bloody Sunday (Red Sunday) on January 22 in 1905 (January 9 in the contemporary method of dating). The Imperial Guard slaughtered unarmed protesters who wanted to offer tzar Nicholas II their petition, marching to his Winter Palace to do so. The massacre changed a lot in Russia, leading to the event of the forced resignation of tzar Nicholass II from power on March 15 1917 (years later). Nicholas and his family were executed by the Bolshevikson 17 July 1918. As the Bolsheviks were inspired by the German philosopher Karl Marx (who was Jewish), some Russians still blame the communist era on “the Jewish” (and Leon Trotsky was also Jewish). Without extensive research I can not determine what powers formed the Russian revolution and communism, but I do know some Eastern Europeans blame the events (right or wrong) on “the Jews”. Anyway, again the date 17/7.

I rode a tank
Held a general’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank 

The Blitzkrieg refers to World War II, which to many, is a reason to believe the song can not be antisemitic. But realize, Hitler was partly Jewish and Hitler faked his suicide, to live a quiet life in South-America after retirement. In a previous article, I discussed the possibility of World War II being set-up by Freemasons. Many of the symbols applied in World War II were masonic.
Then again, The Rolling Stones themselves, their name is, well: The Stones…

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo) 
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
(Woo woo, woo woo) 

I am uncertain of the meaning of this couplet. Crusaders fought in Jeruzalem between 1096 and 1272, which is longer than 10 decades. The objective was to protect holy places in and around Palestina against the Islam. As Muhammed lived around 570 -632 and most of the Royal families in Europe ended around WW1-WW2, it is possible that this part of the song refers to the crusaders. If so, the text suggests both Jesus and Muhammed were made from Judaïsm (not just started with the Old Testament).

I shouted out,
Who killed the Kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me
(Who who, who who)

Previously I have written about the assasination of John F. Kennedy. When this song was written by the Stones, during the recording of it, Robert Kennedy was also killed. As a result, the text changed to “the Kennedys” in plural. In my opinion, on November 22 1963, the first (deadly) shot at John F. Kennedy was fired by Jacky Kennedy, with a small gun against his head. Some say Jacky’s mother was also Jewish (born as Janet Levy), but I found no proof of that. Still, “When after all, It was you and me” sung by Mick Jagger, should perhaps be red “it was Jew and me (Stones).
The President’s Commission to investigate the murder of John F. Kennedy, the Warren Commission, was established on 29 November 1963, which is Black Friday, the day after Thanks Giving. Notice how the explanations found for the lyrics cover White Thursday, Red Sunday and Black Friday. Of course, this is again indirect and might never have been intended by the Stones.

Let me please introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
(Woo woo, who who)  

This couplet is most troublesome. The most likely interpretation I read, was about the Thuggees in India. This secret society cult that murdered and robbed millions of travellers in India, was stopped during British colonialism in India. The Thugs travelled in groups across India for 600 years. Although the Thugs socalled traced their origin to seven Muslim tribes, Hindus appear to have been associated with them at an early period. So far, I have found no source saying that the Thugs actually originated from Jewish origin. But given the rumours behind the other historic events, I also see no reason to exclude the option.
In any case, the Thuggees operated as a secret society, undermining the Indian society.

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
(Who who)
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
(Who who, who who)
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
‘Cause I’m in need of some restraint
(Who who, who who) 

This last part of the ouroborossong is on the one hand straight forward: good and bad are eachothers opposing sides, of the same medaillon. The examples mentioned, are less straightforward. The profession of the police is not a traditional profession for Jewish people. However, there are many Freemasons in the police force. “All the sinners are saints” is simply a satanic point of view.
Heads is tails might refer to both sides of a coin (money), but could also refer to the freemason serpent, a snake that bites its own tail. downloadOuroboros, representing the unending cycle of nature between destruction, and new creation, life and death. The snake is an important symbol in higher degrees of Freemasonry.

So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
(Woo woo)
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, mm yeah
(Who who)
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, mm mean it, get down
(Woo woo, woo woo)
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
(Woo woo)
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger  

So it is up for debate. Is this Stones song: about the Freemasons; about secret societies in general; or about the Jewish people? I do not believe the song is about a celebration of “the bad out there” in general, like indulging in drugs or sex or laziness or fighting. All examples mentioned are organized events with political consequences, most of them political murders. There is nothing spontaneous about it.

32613-4_lgThe song Sympathy for the Devil was recorded in June 1968 and released on 6 December 1968 on the album Beggars Banquet [BB]. The cover of Beggars Banquet is a toilet, likely from a bar or other public place. We notice a five pointed star, mentions of friendship and love, a peace sign, two crosses of which one with a round top (Ankh sign which is an Egyptian symbol for eternal life),  …

    Je hebt vandaag via deze post mijn interesse naar je vastgeroeste niveau omtrent je zogenaamde honger naar de compleet realiteit voorlopig weer eens zwaar doen afnemen Maud. Ik weet dat de vertekende perceptie waarmee gestudeerden zoals jij binnen deze status-quo onherstelbaar academisch blijken te zijn afgericht, bij jullie zo goed als altijd een ingekapselde gevoel van ‘hoogbegaafdheid’ bijna zelfgenoegzaam doet vooruit proclameren. Ik zou je echter ook het volgende willen meegeven waarbij je absoluut hebt te accepteren, dat zij pas tot de wijste worden bevonden, die tijdens het toenemen van hun inzicht er steeds meer overtuigd van raken over veel minder intellect te hebben beschikt dan waarmee tijdens de periodieke achterlijkheid zo dikkenekkerig arrogant werd opgeschept..;

    “We may never know the truth about Jesus Christ, but it’s possible that Jesus was a Jew who came to similar conclusions as my mother. Jesus may have found it difficult to believe that an all-powerful God would be as vengeful and violent as the Jewish religion makes him appear to be. Take a look at the Old Testament, or the Torah, or the Talmud. The Jewish God behaves like a spoiled brat who loves to torture and slaughter people. Why would anybody be attracted to such a violent and psychotic God? Jesus may have come to the conclusion that God is actually wonderful and loving. And once Jesus started promoting this philosophy, some of the other Jews decided to abandon Judaism and switch to that particular philosophy. The rabbis may have worried that Jesus was going to cause a significant percentage of Jews to abandon Judaism, and so they arranged to have him killed. Unfortunately for the rabbis, when they killed Jesus, all they did was kill his body, they didn’t kill his philosophy. His philosophy had already been transferred into other people’s minds, and so it continued to pass from one person to another. The philosophy changed slightly as it was passed around, and eventually it developed into the Catholic Church. Many people of other religions were attracted to it, and so they abandoned their particular religion and switched to Catholics. Life provides us with tremendous opportunities. We have different philosophies to choose from, different nations to live in, different activities to select from, and lots of different people to associate with. When we’re very young we do whatever our parents tell us to do, but as teenagers we start to experiment with drugs, or sex, or alcohol, or sports, or some other activities. We all discover that we enjoy certain activities and people more than others, and eventually we settle into a lifestyle that we like the best. This concept seems obvious, but a lot of people don’t seem to fully understand it. An example are the people who considered rock ‘n roll music to be the devil’s music. Rock ‘n roll music started becoming very popular in the 1960s. A lot of adults notice that the audience at concerts for Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones tended to be young and unbelievably obnoxious, at least compared to the audience of other types of music. The audience at rock concerts would scream uncontrollably, and many of them had problems alcohol or other drugs. Many of the women in the audience would behave like female animals who would line up to let the dominant male have sex with them.” READ ON

    Wat een hoop flauwekul……………..illuminati stront…………alles met 1 doel.
    Mensen weghouden van een lief hebbende God en het liefst ook nog God wegzetten als een of ander boeman.
    Dat kan alleen maar het werk van lucifer zijn, precies zoals de bijbel de misleider noemt.
    John Lennon was ook zo’n een illuminati luciferiaan devilworshipper net als de stones.
