Robertson: Jews Too Busy ‘Polishing Diamonds’

By: JTA

Televangelist Pat Robertson said Jews are too busy “polishing diamonds” to do weekend chores.

Conservative activist Rabbi Daniel Lapin appeared on the “700 Club” Monday with Robertson to discuss what makes Jews successful.

“What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially? You almost never find Jews tinkering with their cars on the weekends or mowing their lawns. That’s what Daniel Lapin says and there’s a very good reason for that, and it lies within the business secrets of the Bible,” Robertson said in introducing the rabbi.

Lapin was on the show to promote his book “Thou Shall Prosper,” which, according to his website, discusses “why Jews throughout the ages flourish economically,” and “how you can benefit from this Jewish wisdom.”

“When you correctly said in Jewish neighborhoods you do not find Jews lying under their cars on Sunday afternoons, no, I pay one of the best mechanics around to take care of my BMW, I’d be crazy to take my time doing it myself,” Lapin said during the interview. Robertson followed Lapin’s explanation with the crack that Jews were polishing diamonds instead of fixing their cars.

  3. And Robertson rakes it in from the poor fools that actually listen to and believe that hogwash he preaches. I wonder who services his car or cuts his grass in front of his mansion which he really “earned”?

  11. He belongs to a pagan religion and gets PAID to misinterpret our bible. Hmm…talk about polishing diamonds. Dude is a polished big old turd.

  12. Like what, Rich? How many Jews do you think have diamonds to polish? Do you believe that crap also?

  13. He did not mean that statement badly! I watch 700 club and their is no other Christian show that promotes Christians are to help the Jews the way they do! Every week they have several segments on Jewish news and inventions . He meant God is really blessing the Jews! Which I might add he is!

  15. You ppl are haters! It is sad it really is , probably more then half aren’t Jews ! I know who is and isn’t by their statements! Sad such hateful remarks, I would ask my self do I worship God or the devil.

  17. Lorraine Taylor, I’m not one to be easily offended and all, but I don’t see how this could have possibly been meant as something good. The myth that Jews are loaded with money and control money and don’t do hard work and just take advantage of others to get rich is so old and we’re sick of hearing it. I am Jewish and I clean my own home and take care of my family myself and cook our meals and do my own laundry and work and them find time to volunteer to help others. Enough is enough! I certainly don’t polish any diamonds.

  19. Wish I had some diamonds to polish… ;)

  20. Tracy Ramsey says:

    Yeah, except somewhere along the line someone forgot to send me my secret Jewish decoder ring. So instead of polishing diamonds, silly me, I’ve been working hard and paying my taxes. So if any of the Elders of Zion happen to read this, could you slip one in the mail for me? Then maybe I can get in on some of those cool conspiracies and super Jew powers we’re supposed to have, at least according to the Arab press and folks like Mel Gibson.

    Tacky. Tacky. Tacky. Jews were not allowed to do many other professional jobs in years past. Handling money was considered “too dirty” for many people, so the “dirty Jews” were allowed to. Thus, they developed the skills to manage money. It backfired on us squeaky-clean gentiles, didn’t it? Shame on him! And Robert, he misinterprets the Gentile Bible, too.

    My interpretation of the story: “Rich televangelists who live inside glass TV-screens should not toss about (gem)stones.”

  27. Share already some diamonds with him, he is soooooo pour! :)

  28. Ira Abramson says:

    We all are not wealthy. Some of us Jews are poor, but there is one thing, we take care of our own and others.

  29. Why are Jewish family are successful they are Gods chosen people so stop putting them down and Bless then God will Bless you

  30. Larraine, we, the Jews are real haters! Crusades, inquisition, pogroms, concentration camps – we did that all to pour good-natured Christians and others. Go now and ask yourself what it is that you worship! :)

  31. Larraine!!! WE DO NOT NEED YOUR “help” and “love”.

  32. Robertson is Christian Zionism’s best supporter of Israel.

  33. How sad that they continue to let him talk on t.v. He seriously has an issue with dimentia setting in. Everything he worked for and stood for is going to fall if they do not take him off the air!

  34. Lorraine!!! I am from Kiev, Ukraine which means: I am an old expert on anti-Semitism! He did mean badly! He did mean to humiliate and diminish us! But he did not achieved his goal – that is why we are not “hating” – we are just joking and laughing! But I agree with you: Hashem the Almighty does bless the Jews. One of our blessing: our enemies are fools.:)

  35. They consider us Goyim. My Grandmother was Jewish. My Grandfather was not. I am a believer in Yahshua…no labels..tags. after 40 years in wilderness…and other hardships..they still dont get it. Chosen only…as the vehicle to bring forth the Messiah..Yashua

  36. Victoria Livshutz…point in case.

  37. Joann Eddy says:

    MAY GOD BLESS US ALL AMEN

  38. I wanted to put some more comments, but I need to go home, to feed my two precious diamonds. After all they need some polishing too, expecialy my 14 year old. :)

  39. Pat robertson has reaped millions as a televangelist. I bet he spends some of his weekends primping and preening.

  40. I will tell you what makes the Jewish people prosper, they are God’s chosen people, and that is all it takes.

  41. Who’s we ? You Victoria Livshutz! I didn’t offer any help! Don’t worry you don’t have my love!

  42. I guess polishing diamonds is a lot better than bowing down to Mecca and planing your next jihad! Use you time wisely!

  43. That’s awful and he a man of God

  44. Allen Miller says:

    Hey Robertson, FU!

  45. It’s time for Pat to throw in the towel. This comment should do it. To bad he didn’t do it before the insulting comment. Jews are blessed by God for a reason.

  46. Also Victoria Livshutz my Dad is Jewish , so I have as much right to be on here and say what ever I want too! So ”The We ” speak for you’re self !

  47. Tany Berman says:

    The guy is old and demented……
