Sorry about this. I'm not a Talmudic scholar in any sense; Can anyone qualify if what presented here is accurate and as bad as it sounds?

    What do you mean by "Hebrew edition only"? – andrewmh20 Nov 16 '15 at 8:22

    At least the quote about returning lost objects is a legal point, not a moral point per se. I have heard it explained that there are certain law that are in place because we must treat everyone as humans. There are certain ones, such as returning lost objects, that are not morally required because of treating people as humans but because we have a higher level obligation to our family. Jews are our family but Christians aren't. So it isn't that we exclude Christians from returning lost objects, rather there is just not reason to add them in the first place. – andrewmh20 Nov 16 '15 at 8:32

    The oldest trick in the missionary book is to quote out of context. Let's take your first quote which in the original says אתם קרויין אדם ואין עובדי כוכבים קרויין אדם - you (the Jews) are called Adam (human? person?) and the idol worshippers are not called Adam and not “The ‘goyim’ are not humans. They are beasts.” - The context is a Pasuk (Yechezkel 34:31 - וְאַתֵּן צֹאנִי צֹאן מַרְעִיתִי אָדָם אַתֶּם - You are my sheep whom I graze, you are Adam) to prove that the graves of non-Jews do not cause Tumah-impurity the way Jewish graves do. – Danny Schoemann Nov 16 '15 at 10:03

    I'm familiar with many of the quotes, and most of them are clearly out-of-context. Since you mention that you're a Talmudic scholar (it says so clearly in your question) you should be able to handle this. (Now don't go telling me that you're not; why would context matter? You've clearly written Talmudic scholar in your introduction.) – Danny Schoemann Nov 16 '15 at 10:08

    One possible issue with this question that I think is keeping it from getting an answer is that it's hard to address all the cases above together, as they each have an individual explanation. – andrewmh20 Nov 16 '15 at 13:01
