Never underestimate the power of stories-Je’
Masada is mountain-top fortress where a group of Jewish extremists fled in 73 AD, after rebelling against Rome and committing ‘terrorist’ acts against Rome and moderate Jews. When they saw that they could not win, they committed mass suicide. While the historian Josephus’ account may be a legend, it shows the mindset of the rebels.
“full of an unconquerable ardor of mind, and moved with a demoniacal fury…thinking that this eagerness would be a demonstration of their courage and good conduct…so great was the zeal they were in to slay their wives and children, and themselves also!”
It shows the mindset of the present Zionist leadership as well. Another story that guides the Zionists is the story of Samson, who when captured by his enemies and blinded, pulled down the whole building where they were assembled, a suicide temple- crasher- but as the Hebrew Bible cheerfully notes, “So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.” (Judges 16:30)
“Most European capitals are targets for our [Israel’s] air force….We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.” — Martin Van Creveld, professor military history at Hebrew University
Another story Zionists live by is that of King David. “A former Likud activist who has become a critic of Netanyahu explains, “Bibi is a messianist. He believes with all his soul and every last molecule of his being that he — I don’t quite know how to express it — is King David.”
And so Israel, led by King Bibi, follows with unconquerable ardor of mind, and moved with a demoniacal fury…to kill Palestinians before the eyes of a watching world, over 2,000 victims in this attack, which is just the most recent in a series of similar attacks.
So we have the story of Masada, the story of Samson and the story of King David, “a man after God’s own heart.” But WHY was David a man after God’s own heart? Not because he was a tribal warlord, raiding and betraying his neighbors; not because he had sex with the wife of his loyal soldier Uriah and then had him killed.
Let’s get real-David was a Middle Eastern terrorist who happened to be Hebrew. But David did do one magnificent thing, something the Zionists show no sign of ever doing. No, not killing Goliath, any cocky teenager might do that. The magnificent thing David did was that he repented, i.e. admitted he was wrong and turned around and went the other way. (2 Samuel 12)
After killing Uriah and marrying Bathsheba (whom David had knocked up,) a prophet came to him. The prophet told him a story of a very rich man with vast flocks and herds who had taken a pet lamb from a poor man, the poor man’s only possession. David was outraged. That rich man must be punished. Who is that man?
“YOU are that man,” said the prophet. “Uriah only had Bathsheba, the wife he loved, while you have several wives, concubines and can have any woman you want.”
David did not spout talking points, like Zionists do when criticized. He did not accuse the prophet of anti-Davidism. He did not hire message-carriers to go around the kingdom convincing everyone what a good guy he was. No, he did a magnificent thing!
He said, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Period. Full stop.
And that is why he was a man after God’s own heart. Bibi, Likud and the Zionists seem incapable of that sort of magnificent truth-telling and humility and that is why they must fall.
I only hope they don’t do a Samson and a Masada on the way down.
