Epic Gay Purim Battle… Tranny Jew and Gay Samaritan fight on Grindr

For those of you who read our analysis of the Jewish hate holiday of Purim (see here), you have to take a look at this gem, sent to us by one of our readers. It seems that a gay Jewish Tranny named “Queen Esther” got into a fight with a gay Samaritan on a gay dating app called Grindr. The fight started over the Prurim holiday but quickly deviated into other unusual antics. It would seem from the conversation that Samaritans are a sect that broke off from Judaism some time ago.  As you will recall from our Purim write up, the Samaritans had pleaded with the Persians not to allow the Jews to return to Israel for fear that they would begin persecuting the Samaritans. Well it seems like the feud is still alive.  The duo fight over their racial and religious superiority in a very amusing style.  A must read!

Purim

Jewish Purim Celebrates Treason & Murder

The Jewish “holiday” of Purim will be celebrated on March 23rd this year (2016). The event is famous for its Mardi Gras like atmosphere. Drunkenness and lewdness are common themes and are actually encouraged, many Jews (particularly Sephardic Jews) engage in symbolic human cannibalism.  However behind this seemingly benign Jewish carnival there is a deep and sinister message, it is a celebration of desired treason, ingratitude, bloodlust and a want for mass murder on the part of the Jews. The Purim celebration reveals a deep-seated hatred for the non-Jews who dared to be benevolent to the Jews.

Purim

The Holiday of Purim celebrates the events of the Torah book of Esther, one of the most often quoted and celebrated stories of the Jewish Religion  among Jews.  Though Jews often try to paint this tale as simply one of “Jewish survival” against “persecution”,  they tend to become disgruntled when the events laid out in this story are analyzed from the non-Jewish perspective.  When viewed through non-Jewish eyes, we find that the heroine from the story, Esther, was nothing more than a deceptive crypto-Jew who was pimped to the king by her duplicitous and power hungry cousin Mordechai.  Later, the treacherous cousin duo needlessly slaughter 75,000 Persians, the very people who had liberated the Jews from captivity in Babylon and had provided them with funds for several generations to rebuild their temple in Jerusalem.  Today’s Jews remember this tragedy at their yearly feast of Purim where they cook pastries to resemble the flesh of a human ear and then eat them, the Jewish holybook of the Talmud also prescribed extreme drunkenness and lawlessness for the occasion.

Symbolic Human Cannibalism

Many wonderful foods are associated with Purim. Filled foods such as Hamantashen are typical, as they represent the intrigue associated with Queen Esther and Uncle Mordechai’s uncovering of Haman’s wicked plot. Sweet foods convey our wishes for a sweet future. Sephardic Jews eat cookies that are fried or baked in the shape of Haman’s ear, which was purported to be twisted and triangular in shape.” - Cooking: Hamantashen: The First Thousand Ears, Reform Judaism Magazine, Tina D. Wasserman

The Talmud Prescribes Drukenness & Lawlessness

The jovial character of the feast was forcibly illustrated in the saying of the Talmud (Meg. 7b) that one should drink on Purim until he can no longer distinguish “Cursed be Haman” from “Blessed be Mordecai,“… It is, therefore, not surprising that all kinds of merry-making, often verging on frivolity, have been indulged in on Purim, so that among the masses it has become almost a general rule that “on Purim everything is allowed” (comp. Steinschneider, l.c. p. 186), even transgressions of a Biblical law, such as the appearance of men in women’s attire and vice versa, which is strictly prohibited in Deut. xxii. 5. This went so far that if through exuberance of spirits a man inflicted damage on the property of another on Purim he was not compelled to repair it (Oraḥ Ḥayyim, l.c., and the references there given). – Purim, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia

 

Historical Realities & Religious Fiction

It is important to note the background of this story since it shows the ungrateful and untrustable nature of the Jewish Religion and its followers.  Perhaps the most relevant fact about the Purim celebration is that it is based upon half historical fact and half fiction.  The historical truth is that the Persian armies under Cyrus the Great did indeed free the Jews from their captivity in Babylon and provided the funds for them to build their temple in Jerusalem.  The Jewish narrative of the events which took place after, meaning the rise of the crypto-Jewish queen Esther in Persia and her subsequent mass murder of 75,000 innocent Persians is regarded as religious fiction. (See “Esther, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia“). The Book of Esther was written some time after the Persian liberation, coinciding with a time when the Jewish people were socially and militarily impotent.  The story of Esther is more about what the Jews wish they could have done to the Persians and less about what they were actually able to accomplish.  Still the intention behind the holiday is important, namely the desire on the part of the Jews to rule and annihilate those who had saved them, particularly with modern day Israel’s growing military and economic presence in the world and their declining relations with United States and Europe (who like Persia, liberated them from captivity and provided them funds to build Israel).

Historical Background
The Ungrateful Jews

The Persian king Cyrus the Great had liberated the Jews from their captivity in Babylon in 539 BCE, he let them return to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple, gave them back the possessions the Babylonians had taken from them, and provided them with additional gold and silver for their rebuilding effort.  It was Persian blood that had been shed to free the Jews, and as their reward the Jews wanted to shed even more blood with their own hands.  Take a moment to think about how America liberated the Jews from the concentration camps in Europe and helped them regain Israel… think about all the American blood being spilled today in the Middle East to defend our “allies”, the Talmudic Zionists.


The Babylonian Captivity (596 BCE)

More than 100 years before the events that take place in the book of Esther, the Jews of Israel were taken captive by Babylon.  All of the gold from the Jewish Temple was plundered and most of the men and women were carried off as slaves.  It will be the Persians who will liberate the Jews from their captivity and return their possession (much like the Americans did during the Holocaust), and for this the Jews will want to stab the Persians in the back, literally!

10 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up to Jerusalem, and the city was besieged. 11 Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to the city while his servants were besieging it, 12 and Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers; and the king of Babylon captured him in the eighth year of his reign. 13 He carried out from there all the treasures of Yahweh’s house, and the treasures of the king’s house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold, which Solomon king of Israel had made in Yahweh’s temple, as Yahweh had said. 14 He carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valor, even ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths. No one remained, except the poorest people of the land. 15 He carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon, with the king’s mother, the king’s wives, his officers, and the chief men of the land. He carried them into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 All the men of might, even seven thousand, and the craftsmen and the smiths one thousand, all of them strong and fit for war, even them the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon.” - 2 Kings 24: 10-16, World English Bible 


Cyrus the Great liberates the Jews and returns them to Israel 

In 539 BCE, Cyrus the Great of the Persian Empires conquers Babylon and allows the Jews to return to Israel, just as the Americans had done during WWII.

The first permanent change was brought about by the Persian king Cyrus. As the Deutero-Isaiah already desired and predicted after the first inroad of Cyrus into the Babylonian kingdom (545), a conquest of the city of Babylon took place (539 B.C.) after the decisive defeat of the army at Sippara.” – CAPTIVITY, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia 

Cyrus, however, permitted the Jews to return to their own land. There was no reason to detain them longer in Babylon; and if they returned to their homes, they would be in a position to defend the border-land against Egypt and the desert.” – CYRUS, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia


The Persians financially support the Jews 

Not only does Cyrus liberate the Jews, but he generously returns to them all of the gold the Babylonians had stolen from them and even offers them money from his own house and loans so that they can rebuild their temple, again, just like what with the Americans did after WWII.

“13 But in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, Cyrus the king made a decree to build this house of God. 14 The gold and silver vessels also of God’s house, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought into the temple of Babylon, those Cyrus the king took out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered to one whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor; 15 and he said to him, ‘Take these vessels, go, put them in the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let God’s house be built in its place.’ ” – Ezra 5: 13-15

3 In the first year of Cyrus the king, Cyrus the king made a decree: Concerning God’s house at Jerusalem, let the house be built, the place where they offer sacrifices, and let its foundations be strongly laid; its height sixty cubits,[a] and its width sixty cubits; 4 with three courses of great stones, and a course of new timber: and let the expenses be given out of the king’s house. – Ezra 6: 3-4

“They also gave money to the masons, and to the carpenters. They also gave food, drink, and oil to the people of Sidon and Tyre, to bring cedar trees from Lebanon to the sea, to Joppa, according to the grant that they had from Cyrus King of Persia.” –Ezra 3:7 


The Persians support Israel against the Samaritans

It was the Jews who has been exported from the land of Israel (originally called Canaan which the Jews had stolen from the indigenous Canaanites generations earlier), but it seems that the Babylonians had left behind the Samaritans, an offshoot religion of Judaism.  From the Jewish Encyclopedia we can see that the Jews did indeed persecute the Samaritans just as they had persecuted the original Canaanites, destroying their religious shrines.

The next reference to the people of Samaria, regarded as the remnant of Israel, is when Josiah suppressed the high places among them (ib. xxiii. 15, 19 et seq.) and collected money to repair the house of the Lord, from “Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel” (II Chron. xxxiv. 9).” - SAMARITANS, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia 

We learn from Ezra 4: 1-24 that with the return of the Jews to Israel and the building of their temple it would seem that the persecution of the Samaritans resumed because they start a letter writing campaign to the Persians asking them to stop the funding of the temple.  This campaign begins with Cyrus the Great, and the Samaritans continue to campaign to stop the building of the Jewish temple for many generations.  The Samaritans try to warn the Persians that if they continue to fund the Jews that they will eventually turn on the Persians and it will fair badly for them, these warnings from the Samaritans to the Persians were indeed prophetic.  From the passage we can see that despite the Samaritans pleas and warning, the Persians continue to support the Jews in their rebuilding efforts all the way up until the time of king Artaxerxes.

3 But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the heads of fathers’ households of Israel, said to them, “You have nothing to do with us in building a house to our God; but we ourselves together will build to Yahweh, the God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia has commanded us.” 4 Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, 5 and hired counselors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia. 6 In the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote they an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem. 7 In the days of Artaxerxes wrote Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel, and the rest of his companions, to Artaxerxes king of Persia; and the writing of the letter was written in Syrian, and delivered in the Syrian language. 8 Rehum the chancellor and Shimshai the scribe wrote a letter against Jerusalem to Artaxerxes the king in this sort: 9 then Rehum the chancellor, and Shimshai the scribe, and the rest of their companions, the Dinaites, and the Apharsathchites, the Tarpelites, the Apharsites, the Archevites, the Babylonians, the Shushanchites, the Dehaites, the Elamites, 10 and the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Osnappar brought over, and set in the city of Samaria, and in the rest of the country beyond the River, and so forth, wrote. 11 This is the copy of the letter that they sent to Artaxerxes the12 Be it known to the king, that the Jews who came up from you have come to us to Jerusalem; they are building the rebellious and the bad city, and have finished the walls, and repaired the foundations. 13 Be it known now to the king that if this city is built, and the walls finished, they will not pay tribute, custom, or toll, and in the end it will be hurtful to the kings. 14 Now because we eat the salt of the palace, and it is not appropriate for us to see the king’s dishonor, therefore have we sent and informed the king; 15 that search may be made in the book of the records of your fathers: so you shall find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful to kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time; for which cause was this city laid waste. 16 We inform the king that, if this city be built, and the walls finished, by this means you shall have no portion beyond the River. 17 Then the king sent an answer to Rehum the chancellor, and to Shimshai the scribe, and to the rest of their companions who dwell in Samaria, and in the rest of the country beyond the River: Peace, and so forth. 18 The letter which you sent to us has been plainly read before me. 19 I decreed, and search has been made, and it is found that this city of old time has made insurrection against kings, and that rebellion and sedition have been made therein. 20 There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, who have ruled over all the country beyond the River; and tribute, custom, and toll, was paid to them. 21 Make a decree now to cause these men to cease, and that this city not be built, until a decree shall be made by me. 22 Take heed that you not be slack herein: why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings? 23 Then when the copy of king Artaxerxes’ letter was read before Rehum, and Shimshai the scribe, and their companions, they went in haste to Jerusalem to the Jews, and made them to cease by force and power. 24 Then ceased the work of God’s house which is at Jerusalem; and it ceased until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia. - Ezra 4: 1-24

 

Persia was supporting the Jews during the time of Esther 

It is important to note that Persia does not turn on the Jews until after the reign of king Ahasuerus (aka Xerxes).  Ahasuerus is the king of Persia during the supposed events of Purim in the book of Esther, and under his rule the Persians are still supporting Israel.  See the entries from the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia on the king Ahasuerus below, and reference the scripture from Ezra 4: 1-24 from above which shows the Persians were supporting the Jews during the period of the book of Esther despite the complaints and warning from the Samaritans.  And so with this background knowledge in place, the story of Esther and Purim begins.

AHASUERUS: “Persian king, identical with Xerxes (486-465 B.C.)The Book of Esther deals only with one period of his reign. It tells us that he ruled over one hundred and twenty-seven provinces—”from India, even unto Ethiopia” (Esth. i. 1)” - AHASUERUS, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia

XERXES: Son of Darius, King of Persia (485-465 B.C.). His name, which is Khshayarsha in Persian, Ikhshiyarshu (with variants) in Babylonian, and Ξέρξης in Greek, frequently occurs, in the Old Testament. It is often written with ו instead of י, as in the Masoretic text, where it is spelled  (Aḥashwerôsh) instead of  (Ayḥashyarsh), with the prothetic vowel indispensable in Semitic before initial double consonants. Xerxes is mentioned in the Book of Ezra (iv. 6) in connection with a complaint lodged against the Jews by the Samaritans (comp. Meyer, “Entstehung des Judenthums,” pp. 16 et seq.). He is the “king” of the Esther romance, and in the Book of Daniel (ix. 1) he is mentioned as the father of Darius, “of the seed of the Medes.” - XERXES, 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia

 

 The Story of Esther

Esther-Lindsey-McCormack (2)

Esther Book One
World English Bible

A Great Feast

Though the Jews were free to return to Jerusalem, many decided to remain in Persia.  The story opens and Ahasuerus (who is supporting the restoration of Israel) is the king of Persia.  In the third year of his reign, the king holds a large feast and all of the nobility attend.  His wife, the queen Vashti prepares a separate feast for the women.

Now in the days of Ahasuerus (this is Ahasuerus who reigned from India even to Ethiopia, over one hundred twenty-seven provinces), 2 in those days, when the King Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace, 3 in the third year of his reign, he made a feast for all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him. 4 He displayed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honor of his excellent majesty many days, even one hundred eighty days. 5 When these days were fulfilled, the king made a seven day feast for all the people who were present in Shushan the palace, both great and small, in the court of the garden of the king’s palace. 6 There were hangings of white, green, and blue material, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and marble pillars. The couches were of gold and silver, on a pavement of red, white, yellow, and black marble. 7 They gave them drinks in golden vessels of various kinds, including royal wine in abundance, according to the bounty of the king. 8 In accordance with the law, the drinking was not compulsory; for so the king had instructed all the officials of his house, that they should do according to every man’s pleasure. 9 Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to King Ahasuerus.


The Strong Queen Vashti Dismissed

After seven days of feasting, intoxicated with wine, king Ahasuerus calls for Vashti to come before the men so that her beauty can be shown off to the guests.  Queen Vashti refuses to allow her self to be paraded about in such a manner.  The obviously flawed king Ahasuerus listens to the advice of is ignoble eunuchs who tell him to dispose of Vashti and find himself a new Queen who will be more suitable.  As usual, disdain for noble strength coupled with weak and corrupt leadership will open the door for the Jews.

10 On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcass, the seven eunuchs who served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king, 11 to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the royal crown, to show the people and the princes her beauty; for she was beautiful. 12 But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment by the eunuchs. Therefore the king was very angry, and his anger burned in him. 13 Then the king said to the wise men, who knew the times, (for it was the king’s custom to consult those who knew law and judgment; 14 and the next to him were Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven princes of Persia and Media, who saw the king’s face, and sat first in the kingdom), 15 “What shall we do to the queen Vashti according to law, because she has not done the bidding of the King Ahasuerus by the eunuchs?” 16 Memucan answered before the king and the princes, “Vashti the queen has not done wrong to just the king, but also to all the princes, and to all the people who are in all the provinces of the King Ahasuerus. 17 For this deed of the queen will become known to all women, causing them to show contempt for their husbands, when it is reported, ‘King Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she didn’t come.’ 18 Today, the princesses of Persia and Media who have heard of the queen’s deed will tell all the king’s princes. This will cause much contempt and wrath19 “If it please the king, let a royal commandment go from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, so that it cannot be altered, that Vashti may never again come before King Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate to another who is better than she. 20 When the king’s decree which he shall make is published throughout all his kingdom (for it is great), all the wives will give their husbands honor, both great and small.” 21 This advice pleased the king and the princes, and the king did according to the word of Memucan: 22 for he sent letters into all the king’s provinces, into every province according to its writing, and to every people in their language, that every man should rule his own house, speaking in the language of his own people.


Esther Book 2

World English Bible

Mordechai Pimps Esther To The King

Employed within king Ahasuerus’ court is a Jew named Mordechai.  Obviously the Jews who have been liberated by the Persians, are being funded by them, and who have high ranking positions in the king’s court cannot complain of much prejudice against them in the Persian kingdom.  Mordechai has an orphaned cousin named Esther whom he has raised as his own daughter. It should be noted here that according to Judaism, Jews are not to marry non-Jews (Deuteronomy 7: 3-4). Even so, Mordechai has no qualms about breaking Jewish law by ushering his cousin Esther into the harem of pagan king Ahasuerus.  Most important of all, Mordechai instructs Esther not to reveal that she is related to Mordechai, or that she is secretly a Jew.  Eventually, the crypto-Jew Esther wins the kings favor and becomes the new Queen of Persia.

1 After these things, when the wrath of King Ahasuerus was pacified, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her. 2 Then the king’s servants who served him said, “Let beautiful young virgins be sought for the king. 3 Let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the beautiful young virgins to the citadel of Susa, to the women’s house, to the custody of Hegai the king’s eunuch, keeper of the women. Let cosmetics be given them; 4 and let the maiden who pleases the king be queen instead of Vashti.”The thing pleased the king, and he did so.

There was a certain Jew in the citadel of Susa, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite, 6 who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captives who had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away. 7 He brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter; for she had neither father nor mother. The maiden was fair and beautiful; and when her father and mother were dead, Mordecai took her for his own daughter. 8 So, when the king’s commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together to the citadel of Susa, to the custody of Hegai, Esther was taken into the king’s house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women. 9 The maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness from him. He quickly gave her cosmetics and her portions of food, and the seven choice maidens who were to be given her out of the king’s house. He moved her and her maidens to the best place in the women’s house. 10 Esther had not made known her people nor her relatives, because Mordecai had instructed her that she should not make it known. 11 Mordecai walked every day in front of the court of the women’s house, to find out how Esther was doing, and what would become of her.

12 Each young woman’s turn came to go in to King Ahasuerus after her purification for twelve months (for so were the days of their purification accomplished, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet fragrances and with preparations for beautifying women). 13 The young woman then came to the king like this: whatever she desired was given her to go with her out of the women’s house to the king’s house. 14 In the evening she went, and on the next day she returned into the second women’s house, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king’s eunuch, who kept the concubines. She came in to the king no more, unless the king delighted in her, and she was called by name. 15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, came to go in to the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s eunuch, the keeper of the women, advised. Esther obtained favor in the sight of all those who looked at her. 16 So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus into his royal house in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. 17 The king loved Esther more than all the women, and she obtained favor and kindness in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown on her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. 18 Then the king made a great feast for all his princes and his servants, even Esther’s feast; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces, and gave gifts according to the king’s bounty. 19 When the virgins were gathered together the second time, Mordecai was sitting in the king’s gate. 20 Esther had not yet made known her relatives nor her people, as Mordecai had commanded her; for Esther obeyed Mordecai, like she did when she was brought up by him.


Mordechai Wins The King’s Favor

Later, Mordechai overhears a plot by two of the king’s eunuchs to assassinate the king.  Again corrupt officials are always a boon for the Jews, the vector for their entrance into power in Gentile society. Mordechai tells now queen Esther who informs the king and the two eunuchs are hung.  Mordechai’s good deeds are recorded in the official record books for latter retrieval.

21 In those days, while Mordecai was sitting in the king’s gate, two of the king’s eunuchs, Bigthan and Teresh, who were doorkeepers, were angry, and sought to lay hands on the King Ahasuerus.22 This thing became known to Mordecai, who informed Esther the queen; and Esther informed the king in Mordecai’s name. 23 When this matter was investigated, and it was found to be so, they were both hanged on a tree; and it was written in the book of the chronicles in the king’s presence.


Esther 3

World English Bible

Mordechai The Hypocrite 

Soon afterward, king Ahasuerus elevates a certain Persian named Haman to a powerful position and there is a ceremony whereby all the subjects of the king’s court are to bow to Haman.  Mordechai refuses to bow to Haman and when questioned as to why he states that it is because he is a Jew.  Mordechai had no issue with breaking Jewish law when he whored his cousin Esther to the pagan king and then instructed her to keep her relation to Mordechai and her Judaism a secret, yet all of a sudden he is unable to bow to Haman due to his religion, even though Jews bow to each other all the time:

Genesis 23:7 Abraham bows to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.
Genesis 33:3-7 Jacob and Leah bow to Esau
Genesis 42:6 Joseph’s brethren bow to Joseph
1 Samuel 24:8 David bows to King Saul
1 Samuel 20:41 David bows to Jonathan
1 Samuel 25:23 Abigail bows to King David
1 Samuel 25:41 Abigail bows to King David
2 Samuel 14:33 Absalom bows to King David
2 Samuel 24:20 Araunah bows to King David
1 King 1:23 The Prophet Nathan bows to King David
1 King 1:53 Adonijah bows to Solomon
Ruth 2:10 Ruth bows to Boaz

1 After these things King Ahasuerus promoted Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes who were with him. 2All the king’s servants who were in the king’s gate bowed down, and paid homage to Haman; for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai didn’t bow down or pay him homage. 3 Then the king’s servants, who were in the king’s gate, said to Mordecai, “Why do you disobey the king’s commandment?” 4 Now it came to pass, when they spoke daily to him, and he didn’t listen to them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai’s reason would stand; for he had told them that he was a Jew.


Haman Plots To Kill The Jews 

Upon hearing Mordechai’s hypocrisy, Haman becomes overly angry and vows to kill the Jews of the empire.  He approaches king Ahasuerus and complains of the Jews and their separate laws and customs and is able to convince the king to send out proclamations to all his provinces to have the Jews of Persia killed on the thirteenth day of the month of Adar.

5 When Haman saw that Mordecai didn’t bow down, nor pay him homage, Haman was full of wrath. 6 But he scorned the thought of laying hands on Mordecai alone, for they had made known to him Mordecai’s peopleTherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even Mordecai’s people. 7 In the first month, which is the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of King Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, and chose the twelfth month, which is the month Adar. 8 Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom, and their laws are different than other people’s. They don’t keep the king’s laws. Therefore it is not for the king’s profit to allow them to remain. 9 If it pleases the king, let it be written that they be destroyed; and I will pay ten thousand talents[a] of silver into the hands of those who are in charge of the king’s business, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.” 10 The king took his ring from his hand, and gave it to Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews’ enemy. 11 The king said to Haman, “The silver is given to you, the people also, to do with them as it seems good to you.” 12 Then the king’s scribes were called in on the first month, on the thirteenth day of the month; and all that Haman commanded was written to the king’s satraps, and to the governors who were over every province, and to the princes of every people, to every province according to its writing, and to every people in their language. It was written in the name of King Ahasuerus, and it was sealed with the king’s ring. 13 Letters were sent by couriers into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to plunder their possessions. 14 A copy of the letter, that the decree should be given out in every province, was published to all the peoples, that they should be ready against that day. 15 The couriers went out in haste by the king’s commandment, and the decree was given out in the citadel of Susa. The king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city of Shushan was perplexed.

Esther Plans To Save The Jews 

Mordechai hears of this plot to kill all the Jews of Persia and becomes distraught, he tears his clothes, covers himself with ash and begins wailing before the king’s gate.  Esther (who is still hiding her relationship to Mordechai and her Judaism) sends her servants to find out what is wrong.  Mordechai explains the situation and provides the documents proving the Jews are to be killed on the thirteenth day of Adar.  Upon hearing this, Esther plans to use her influence as queen to have king Ahasuerus reverse the decree.

1 Now when Mordecai found out all that was done, Mordecai tore his clothes, and put on sackcloth with ashes, and went out into the middle of the city, and wailed loudly and a bitterly. 2 He came even before the king’s gate, for no one is allowed inside the king’s gate clothed with sackcloth. 3 In every province, wherever the king’s commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes. 4 Esther’s maidens and her eunuchs came and told her this, and the queen was exceedingly grieved. She sent clothing to Mordecai, to replace his sackcloth; but he didn’t receive it. 5 Then Esther called for Hathach, one of the king’s eunuchs, whom he had appointed to attend her, and commanded him to go to Mordecai, to find out what this was, and why it was. 6 So Hathach went out to Mordecai, to city square which was before the king’s gate. 7 Mordecai told him of all that had happened to him, and the exact sum of the money that Haman had promised to pay to the king’s treasuries for the destruction of the Jews. 8 He also gave him the copy of the writing of the decree that was given out in Shushan to destroy them, to show it to Esther, and to declare it to her, and to urge her to go in to the king, to make supplication to him, and to make request before him, for her people.

9 Hathach came and told Esther the words of Mordecai. 10 Then Esther spoke to Hathach, and gave him a message to Mordecai: 11 “All the king’s servants, and the people of the king’s provinces, know, that whoever, whether man or woman, comes to the king into the inner court without being called, there is one law for him, that he be put to death, except those to whom the king might hold out the golden scepter, that he may live. I have not been called to come in to the king these thirty days.”

12 They told to Mordecai Esther’s words. 13 Then Mordecai asked them return answer to Esther, “Don’t think to yourself that you will escape in the king’s house any more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent now, then relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows if you haven’t come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

15 Then Esther asked them to answer Mordecai, 16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day. I and my maidens will also fast the same way. Then I will go in to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.” 17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

Esther Requests Two Banquets 

Esther goes before King Ahasuerus who offers her anything she would like. Esther requests a banquet and for the king and Haman to attend. At this banquet Esther requests that the king and Haman attend another banquet the next evening which she will prepare. Esther has still not revealed her relationship to Mordechai or the fact that she is a Jew.

Now on the third day, Esther put on her royal clothing, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, next to the king’s house. The king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, next to the entrance of the house. 2 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther came near, and touched the top of the scepter. 3 Then the king asked her, “What would you like, queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given you even to the half of the kingdom.”

Esther said, “If it seems good to the king, let the king and Haman come today to the banquet that I have prepared for him.” 5 Then the king said, “Bring Haman quickly, so that it may be done as Esther has said.” So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared. 6 The king said to Esther at the banquet of wine, “What is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your request? Even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.”7 Then Esther answered and said, “My petition and my request is this. 8 If I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I will prepare for them, and I will do tomorrow as the king has said.”


Haman Plans To Have Mordecai Hung

Meanwhile, in between the first and second banquet, Haman has a gallow prepared for Mordechai where he plans to have him hung.

Then Haman went out that day joyful and glad of heart, but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king’s gate, that he didn’t stand up nor move for him, he was filled with wrath against Mordecai. 10 Nevertheless Haman restrained himself, and went home. There, he sent and called for his friends and Zeresh his wife. 11 Haman recounted to them the glory of his riches, the multitude of his children, all the things in which the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king. 12 Haman also said, “Yes, Esther the queen let no man come in with the king to the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and tomorrow I am also invited by her together with the king. 13 Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate.”14 Then Zeresh his wife and all his friends said to him, “Let a gallows be made fifty cubits[a] high, and in the morning speak to the king about hanging Mordecai on it. Then go in merrily with the king to the banquet.” This pleased Haman, so he had the gallows made.

World English Bible

The King Saves Mordechai 

That evening, King Ahasuerus is unable to sleep and has his servant read to him from the official record books.  The king is reminded that Mordechai had once saved his life by reporting a plot to have him murdered by two of his own eunuchs.  The king calls Haman to his chambers and before Haman the king declares that Mordecai will not be hung but will be given a place of honor and returned to his post.  Haman himself is instructed to deliver this message to Mordechai which he does.  Mordechai is saved!  Now all that’s left is for Esther to save the rest of the Jews of the empire.

On that night, the king couldn’t sleep. He commanded the book of records of the chronicles to be brought, and they were read to the king. 2 It was found written that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs, who were doorkeepers, who had tried to lay hands on the King Ahasuerus. 3 The king said, “What honor and dignity has been given to Mordecai for this?

Then the king’s servants who attended him said, “Nothing has been done for him.”

4 The king said, “Who is in the court?” Now Haman had come into the outer court of the king’s house, to speak to the king about hanging Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.

5 The king’s servants said to him, “Behold,[a] Haman stands in the court.”

The king said, “Let him come in.” 6 So Haman came in. The king said to him, “What shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?”

Now Haman said in his heart, “Who would the king delight to honor more than myself?” 7 Haman said to the king, “For the man whom the king delights to honor, 8 let royal clothing be brought which the king uses to wear, and the horse that the king rides on, and on the head of which a crown royal is set. 9 Let the clothing and the horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man whom the king delights to honor with them, and have him ride on horseback through the city square, and proclaim before him, ‘Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!’”

10 Then the king said to Haman, “Hurry and take the clothing and the horse, as you have said, and do this for Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king’s gate. Let nothing fail of all that you have spoken.”

11 Then Haman took the clothing and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and had him ride through the city square, and proclaimed before him, “Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!”

12 Mordecai came back to the king’s gate, but Haman hurried to his house, mourning and having his head covered. 13 Haman recounted to Zeresh his wife and all his friends everything that had happened to him. Then his wise men and Zeresh his wife said to him, “If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, is of Jewish descent, you will not prevail against him, but you will surely fall before him.” 14 While they were yet talking with him, the king’s eunuchs came, and hurried to bring Haman to the banquet that Esther had prepared.

Haman Is Killed 

The next evening, the king and Haman attend Esther’s banquet as promised.  At the banquet Esther reveals she is a Jew and begs the king to spare her people from the slaughter that Haman has devised.  That very night Haman is hung from the very gallows he had prepared for Mordechai.  The enemy of the Jews, the man who singularly tried to orchestrate their demise has been killed and the rest of the Jews are about to be saved as well, but the Esther and Mordechai will take this opportunity to kill 75,000 innocent Persians.

So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen. 2 The king said again to Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, “What is your petition, queen Esther? It shall be granted you. What is your request? Even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.”

3 Then Esther the queen answered, “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request. 4For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for male and female slaves, I would have held my peace, although the adversary could not have compensated for the king’s loss.”

Then King Ahasuerus said to Esther the queen, “Who is he, and where is he who dared presume in his heart to do so?”

Esther said, “An adversary and an enemy, even this wicked Haman!”

Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. 7 The king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden. Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king. 8 Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen on the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he even assault the queen in front of me in the house?” As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face.

Then Harbonah, one of the eunuchs who were with the king said, “Behold, the gallows fifty cubits[a] high, which Haman has made for Mordecai, who spoke good for the king, is standing at Haman’s house.”

The king said, “Hang him on it!”

10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.

Jewish Treachery

What happens next is an act of vile Jew treachery.  King Ahasuerus gives Mordechai full reign to reverse the orders to kill the Jews.  With the power to do as he pleases, Mordechai does not just cancel the orders to have the Jews of the empire killed, but sends out orders that the Jews of every district in Persia are to be armed so that they can “take revenge on their enemies”. Mordechai flaunts his new power by walking around in royal robes wearing a crown, meanwhile many of the Persians of the empire fearing for their lives confess to be Jews in order to escape the coming slaughter.

On that day, King Ahasuerus gave the house of Haman, the Jews’ enemy, to Esther the queenMordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was to her. 2The king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai.Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman. 3 Esther spoke yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and begged him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews. 4 Then the king held out to Esther the golden scepter. So Esther arose, and stood before the king. 5 She said, “If it pleases the king, and if I have found favor in his sight, and the thing seem right to the king, and I am pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews who are in all the king’s provinces. 6 For how can I endure to see the evil that would come to my people? How can I endure to see the destruction of my relatives?”

7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, “See, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged on the gallows, because he laid his hand on the Jews. 8 Write also to the Jews, as it pleases you, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring; for the writing which is written in the king’s name, and sealed with the king’s ring, may not be reversed by any man.”

9 Then the king’s scribes were called at that time, in the third month Sivan, on the twenty-third day of the month; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded to the Jews, and to the satraps, and the governors and princes of the provinces which are from India to Ethiopia, one hundred twenty-seven provinces, to every province according to its writing, and to every people in their language, and to the Jews in their writing, and in their language. 10 He wrote in the name of King Ahasuerus, and sealed it with the king’s ring, and sent letters by courier on horseback, riding on royal horses that were bred from swift steeds. 11 In those letters, the king granted the Jews who were in every city to gather themselves together, and to defend their life, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, their little ones and women, and to plunder their possessions, 12 on one day in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar. 13 A copy of the letter, that the decree should be given out in every province, was published to all the peoples, that the Jews should be ready for that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. 14 So the couriers who rode on royal horses went out, hastened and pressed on by the king’s commandment. The decree was given out in the citadel of Susa.

15 Mordecai went out of the presence of the king in royal clothing of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a robe of fine linen and purple; and the city of Susa shouted and was glad. 16 The Jews had light, gladness, joy, and honor. 17 In every province, and in every city, wherever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had gladness, joy, a feast, and a good day. Many from among the peoples of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews was fallen on them.

75,000 Innocent Persians Murdered & The Feast Of Purim 

On the thirteenth day of Adar, the armed Jews slaughter 75,000 Persian people who are considered to be their “enemies” and those who “hate” the Jews, including the 10 sons of Haman.  Don’t forget, it was these Persian people who had liberated the Jews from Babylon, restored them to Israel, financially supported them for generations, allowed them to live among them in Persia, and gave them positions of great power in the court of the king… and for this they are massacred.  Afterwords, Esther and Mordechai create a feast and set up a holiday for the Jews to remember the story of the slaying of 75,000 people of the Persian empire, this festival today is known as Purim.

1 Now in the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the month, when the king’s commandment and his decree came near to be put in execution, on the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to conquer them, (but it was turned out the opposite happened, that the Jews conquered those who hated them), 2 the Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the King Ahasuerus, to lay hands on those who wanted to harm them. No one could withstand them, because the fear of them had fallen on all the people. 3 All the princes of the provinces, the satraps, the governors, and those who did the king’s business helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai had fallen on them. 4 For Mordecai was great in the king’s house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces; for the man Mordecai grew greater and greater. 5 The Jews struck all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and with slaughter and destruction, and did what they wanted to those who hated them. 6 In the citadel of Susa, the Jews killed and destroyed five hundred men. 7 They killed Parshandatha, Dalphon, Aspatha, 8 Poratha, Adalia, Aridatha, 9 Parmashta, Arisai, Aridai, and Vaizatha, 10 the ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Jew’s enemy, but they didn’t lay their hand on the plunder. 11 On that day, the number of those who were slain in the citadel of Susa was brought before the king. 12 The king said to Esther the queen, “The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in the citadel of Susa, including the ten sons of Haman; what then have they done in the rest of the king’s provinces! Now what is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your further request? It shall be done.”

13 Then Esther said, “If it pleases the king, let it be granted to the Jews who are in Shushan to do tomorrow also according to today’s decree, and let Haman’s ten sons be hanged on the gallows.”

14 The king commanded this to be done. A decree was given out in Shushan; and they hanged Haman’s ten sons. 15 The Jews who were in Shushan gathered themselves together on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and killed three hundred men in Shushan; but they didn’t lay their hand on the plunder. 16 The other Jews who were in the king’s provinces gathered themselves together, defended their lives, had rest from their enemies, and killed seventy-five thousand of those who hated them; but they didn’t lay their hand on the plunder. 17 This was done on the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of that month they rested and made it a day of feasting and gladness. 18 But the Jews who were in Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth and on the fourteenth days of the month; and on the fifteenth day of that month, they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

19 Therefore the Jews of the villages, who live in the unwalled towns, make the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, a good day, and a day of sending presents of food to one another. 20 Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters to all the Jews who were in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, both near and far, 21 to enjoin them that they should keep the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month Adar yearly, 22 as the days in which the Jews had rest from their enemies, and the month which was turned to them from sorrow to gladness, and from mourning into a good day; that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, and of sending presents of food to one another, and gifts to the needy. 23 The Jews accepted the custom that they had begun, as Mordecai had written to them; 24 because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast “Pur”, that is the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them; 25 but when this became known to the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he had devised against the Jews, should return on his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows. 26 Therefore they called these days “Purim”,[a] from the word “Pur.” Therefore because of all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and that which had come to them, 27 the Jews established, and imposed on themselves, and on their descendants, and on all those who joined themselves to them, so that it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to what was written, and according to its appointed time, every year; 28 and that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor their memory perish from their offspring,[b]

29 Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority to confirm this second letter of Purim. 30 He sent letters to all the Jews, to the hundred twenty-seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth31 to confirm these days of Purim in their appointed times, as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had decreed, and as they had imposed upon themselves and their descendants, in the matter of the fastings and their cry. 32 The commandment of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.

The Jews Rule Persia 

After the slaughter, Mordechai the Jew becomes the most powerful man in all of Persia next to the king.  This is the ending of the story of Esther and the Jewish holiday of Purim. The Persian people who had liberated the Jews from captivity in Babylon and had furnished them with gold and silver to rebuild their temple, were slaughtered by a social climbing hypocritical pimp and his deceptive crypto-Jew pawn, all because of the actions of one man, Haman, who had already been dealt with.  Though Esther and Mordechai cannot be blamed for dealing with Haman, their actions afterward show the truly opportunistic, ungrateful and murderous character of the Jewish Religions and its people. America take heed!

1 King Ahasuerus laid a tribute on the land, and on the islands of the sea. 2 All the acts of his power and of his might, and the full account of the greatness of Mordecai, to which the king advanced him, aren’t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia? 3 For Mordecai the Jew was next to King Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted by the multitude of his brothers, seeking the good of his people, and speaking peace to all his descendants.

Why Hindus Should NOT Say “Merry Christmas”

It has become common, even among more staunch circles, to hear Hindus wishing each other a “Merry Christmas”.  It is easy to see why Hindus might be misled into this practice since Christmas as of late has become extremely commercialized and people often forget its underlying religious message.  However, this practice is more dangerous than some assume.  It give credence to the person behind the holiday, Jesus Christ himself. But who was Jesus, and is he someone Hindus should inadvertently be praising?

First, Hindus may want to take a look at the name of this holiday.  The word “Christmas” is a truncation of “Christ’s Mass”, meaning it is a time to focus on and commemorate Jesus Christ.  The holiday is indeed a time for Christians to venerate the founding prophet of their religion, their foretold messiah who would fulfill the covenant of the god of the bible to bring the entire earth to the “one true religion” as laid out in the Christian holybook.  Certainly, Jesus is claimed to be the “King of Kings”, the one ruler and sovereign in this world to whom all other peoples should and eventually will bend.  While not all Hindus may be interested in opposing this idea, you might also want to take a moment to think about whether or not you want to support it.

But who was Jesus anyway, what was he the messiah of?  Jesus (if he existed) practiced the religion of the Old Testament of the bible then prevalent in Israel.  He was not a Hindu nor did he promote the Vedas.  Jesus was a proponent of biblical morality, biblical prophecy and biblical tradition.  While one may hold their own opinion on these, it is certain to say that these are not the same as Vedic or Hindu morals and teachings, and often times they are in direct opposition to our beliefs.  Indeed, the bible holds a great deal of animosity toward members of other faiths, and so did Jesus. (See “Commands To Kill Gentiels”)

Before we we get to Jesus’ opinion about members of other religions, we might want to take a look at where he was coming from.  Jesus’ biblical religion had replaced the old and indigenous Canaanite and Phoenician religions some centuries earlier, the bible says this was done by force.  The Canaanites’ sin was that they did not worship the one true god of the bible.  While many try to claim that the Canaanites were depraved and practiced child sacrifice, it is only fair to point out that the bible also commanded child sacrifice; children who did no worship the one true god were ritually stoned to death or slain per divine biblical law. (See “Child Sacrifice”)

Once the religion of the bible was established over the Canaanite peoples, their temples were destroyed, their religion forbidden and the native people were forced into indentured labor and various forms of slavery, including sex slavery (See “Slavery”).  These harsh conditions were again not created by superfluous ideology but were the central tenets of the Old Testament of the bible.  Some argue that the bible’s description of events are not historical, but still they are of course an “ethical” narrative which teach people how to behave and think, regardless of their reality.

Now fast forward to Jesus’ time. The Old Testament prophesied of a coming messiah (or perhaps messiahs) who would lead the entire earth to the recognition of this one true religion and that eventually every other “false” religion would subside under his reign.  Jesus claimed to be this messiah, the very one to fulfill the Old Testament’s promise.  Verily, Jesus himself stated: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” – Mathew 5:17

But the Old Testament had called for the death, enslavement and severe mistreatment of the pagan peoples of the region along with the abolition of their religion.  Many people believe that Jesus spoke kindly of all peoples, but Jesus did not care for pagans at all.  While one might think that he would have made reconcile for this past hatred and atrocities, Jesus was very clear that “pagans” were to be treated as if they were foreign usurpers (Roman tax collectors) and he despaired of them as being superficial, materialistic and babbling.

What Did Jesus Christ Say About Pagans?

 Pagans Are Materialistic 

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:31-33 NIV)

Pagans Babble
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, Who is unseen. Then your Father, Who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” (Matthew 6:6-8 NIV)

Pagans Are Like (Roman) Tax Collectors
“If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15-17 NIV)

Some Things Are Too Low, Even For Pagans
“He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?” (Matthew 5:45-47 NIV)

So when you say “Merry Christmas” you are definitely endorsing the messiahship of a man who cared little to repent for the hatred and death his religion had caused.  Some may object to this, they may think that to them Christmas is more about fun.  But let me ask every Hindu this, even if Islam eventually became much less of a threat and resembled something closer to modern Christianity, how comfortable would you feel in saying “Happy Birthday Prophet Mohammad”?  Even if Islam were not an imminent threat, you would certainly think twice before endorsing the founder of the Muslim religion.  It is a fact that the Muslim world has experienced extended periods of enlightenment and secularism, however the religious trappings of the religion such as holidays always kept the embers of hate and destruction alive, ready to flare back up when the opportunity arose.  The same applies to Christianity.

However, Hindus may also want to use this occasion to spread a new message than can counter the messiah of the bible.  Refusing to say “Merry Christmas” gives us a good opportunity to explain who we are and why we don’t celebrate, allowing others to learn more about our religion and who we are.  Or, an alternative to this would be to point out that Christmas is actually built upon ancient Pagan holidays which were misappropriated by Christians.  Either way, these are better alternatives to openly celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Exodus VIII – More Plagues For Egypt

Just as the god of Israel has planned, the Pharaoh of Egypt does not give into the demands of the sorcerer Moses who wants to lead the band of treasonous Israelis to the borders of Egypt.  And so, as if the Israelis were not vermin enough, the god instructs his slave Moses to plague the people of Egypt with frogs, lice and flies.  The bumbling and useless priests of Egypt eventually prove ineffective against these attacks and soon the Pharaoh thinks of giving into the demands of the Israelites.  But rather than coming to a decision, the Pharaoh goes back and forth, first agreeing to allow the Israelites to go, and then breaking his promises.  This long drawn out pathetic drama is just the scene Israel needs to make its final move.  Soon the infants of Egypt will be dead in revenge killings, the Israelites will look like poor victims, and they will be handed their sympathy gold form the Egyptian people.  The oppressors will become the oppressed and the Egyptians will be swindled yet again by Israel, a nation they helped in a time of need, a nation who will never stop stabbing them in the back.

The Second Plague: Frogs

The next plague that the god of Israel unleashes upon poor Egypt through his magician Moses is a plague of frogs. They come up out of the Nile River and enter the homes of the Egyptians, infesting their sleeping quarters and kitchens.  These pests are like Israel itself, in everything and everywhere, spreading filth and decay. Notice that the Israelite’s always bring pestilence.  Remember when Abraham and Sarah came to this land hundreds of years earlier they brought a plague upon the people and were thrown out.  Wherever Israel goes, pestilence and disease follows. Again, the Egyptian priests are able to make the same magic, and so the stupid Pharaoh will have yet another excuse to do nothing, or make more blunders which will eventually put his people deeper under the spell of Israel.

8 Yahweh spoke to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, “This is what Yahweh says, ‘Let my people go, that they may serve me. 2 If you refuse to let them go, behold, I will plague all your borders with frogs: 3 and the river shall swarm with frogs, which shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedroom, and on your bed, and into the house of your servants, and on your people, and into your ovens, and into your kneading troughs: 4 and the frogs shall come up both on you, and on your people, and on all your servants.’” 5 Yahweh said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Stretch out your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.’” 6 Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. 7 The magicians did the same thing with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

Ignoble Pharaoh does not keep his word

After this second plague of frogs the Pharoah is ready to show what a vacillating and weak ruler he really is.  Rather than taking a stand against Israel and completely destroying this plague, he first gives into Israel’s demands to go out into the wilderness on the borders of Egypt.  The Egyptian Pharaoh’s who enslaved Israel after they had destroyed Egyptian society through their banking and collectivization scams long feared that Israel would eventually side with Egypt’s enemies and then flee back to the land of Canaan, a land that did not even belong to them.  To even think of allowing all of these unscrupulous, traitorous and proven enemies of the state to go out to the borders of the nation in mass would be suicidal; the Pharaoh’s acquiescence to this plan shows his total lack of will and his horribly poor judgement.  But just when this typical gentile buffoon of a leader could not make himself look any lower or do any worse by his people in the face of the threat of Israel, he then takes back his promise of allowing Israel to travel out into the desert and so becomes not only incompetent but also an oath breaker.  But don’t forget, the god of Israel knew that this would be the outcome of his schemes, he is fattening this cow for the slaughter, and a mighty fine slaughter it will be, a massive child sacrifice which the god of Israel will savor for eternity (or so he thinks).

8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Entreat Yahweh, that he take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to Yahweh.” 9 Moses said to Pharaoh, “I give you the honor of setting the time that I should pray for you, and for your servants, and for your people, that the frogs be destroyed from you and your houses, and remain in the river only.”10 He said, “Tomorrow.” He said, “Be it according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like Yahweh our God. 11 The frogs shall depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people. They shall remain in the river only.” 12 Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses cried to Yahweh concerning the frogs which he had brought on Pharaoh. 13 Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courts, and out of the fields. 14 They gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank. 15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart, and didn’t listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.

The Third Plague: Lice

So with the Pharaoh breaking his oaths and failing to exterminate Israel, the god sends out his sorcerers to bring a plague of lice upon the nation of Egypt.  But this time the Egyptian magicians cannot copy the tricks and so Egypt begins to look like the toothless old dog that it is.  Again and again, over and over, in ever nation and in every place the Israelites are aided by the impotence, arrogance, stupidity and corruption of the gentile leaders.  Egypt’s priesthood were in on the Israelites’ banking conspiracy, they kept their land while their own people became landless serfs, now they will pay the price for their treason.

16 Yahweh said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.’” 17 They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were lice on man, and on animal; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 18 The magicians tried with their enchantments to produce lice, but they couldn’t. There were lice on man, and on animal. 19 Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is God’s finger:” and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he didn’t listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken.

The Forth Plague: Flies

The forth plague is very important since it is the first plague that will effect only the Egyptian people and not the people of Israel.  From the passage we can see that even though the Israelites are now slaves, they still remain in the best of the land of Egypt, the land of Goshen.  The Israelites had swindled this land away from the Egyptians generations earlier and it has since become their concentration camp.  The land of Goshen will be spared from all the remaining plagues in Egypt.  Of course the people who deserve to suffer here, the people of Israel, will not only be spared but will soon run off with much of the remaining gold of the empire.

20 Yahweh said to Moses, “Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; behold, he comes out to the water; and tell him, ‘This is what Yahweh says, “Let my people go, that they may serve me. 21 Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you, and on your servants, and on your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are. 22 I will set apart in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I am Yahweh on the earth. 23 I will put a division between my people and your people: by tomorrow shall this sign be.”’” 24 Yahweh did so; and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses: and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies.

The Pharaoh does not keep his word

And so under duress the weak and cowardly Pharaoh once again promises to allow the Israelites to go to the borders of Egypt to sacrifice to their psycopathic god.  Moses lifts the curse of flies upon the Egyptians, but the ignoble and useless Pharaoh does not keep his word.  Soon the Israelites will have all the ammunition they need.  It has been generations since the Israelites destroyed and captured Egypt, most of the Egyptian people probably don’t even remember the tragedy that brought down their great civilization and put everything in the hands of their Israeli oppressors.  Now the Israelites are poor abused slaves who simply want to be free and are being misled at every turn.  It won’t be long now when the Egyptian people will begin to sympathize with their tormentors and give them the rest of what little wealth they still have, all this as the streets run with the blood of their ritually sacrificed infants and children.

25 Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, “Go, sacrifice to your God in the land!” 26 Moses said, “It isn’t appropriate to do so; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to Yahweh our God. Behold, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and won’t they stone us? 27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh our God, as he shall command us.” 28 Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the wilderness, only you shall not go very far away. Pray for me.” 29 Moses said, “Behold, I go out from you, and I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, tomorrow; only don’t let Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yahweh.” 30 Moses went out from Pharaoh, and prayed to Yahweh. 31 Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people. There remained not one. 32 Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he didn’t let the people go.

Exodus VII – The First Plague

The god of Israel continues to gleefully brood over his plan to bring death and carnage to Egypt.  He is going to send his disillusioned priest Moses before the Pharaoh and have him perform his magic tricks.  However, the god of Israel already knows the Pharaoh will not be impressed and will not allow the treasonous Israelites to exit the city in mass. Knowing full well how things will plat out, the god of Israel eventually has Moses send the first plague upon Egypt, turning the Nile River into blood.

Exodus 7

World English Bible (WEB)

Harden their hearts

The god of Israel gloats to pessimistic Moses about his wicked plans.  He is eagerly waiting for the moment when he can harden the heart of the Egyptian pharaoh.  With the stupid Pharaoh’s brutality, the god of Israel will have an excuse to lay his hand on Egypt and send them all sorts of horrific signs of his awesome power.  It’s all a game to the god of Israel, human collateral is nothing but stage prop to this demonic sprit.

7 Yahweh said to Moses, “Behold, I have made you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. 2 You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. 3 I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 4 But Pharaoh will not listen to you, and I will lay my hand on Egypt, and bring out my armies, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5 The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh, when I stretch out my hand on Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.”

The Sorcerer’s game begins

And so Moses and Aaron who are now both in their 80s are back before a Pharoah who is not interested in hearing their Israeli lies, representing a people who want nothing to do with them, and Moses does not even want to be there.  But Moses does his duty and pulls out the snake trick the god of Israel had given him back in the desert of Sinai.  He throws his staff on the ground and it becomes a snake.  But it turns out the Egyptian Pharaoh’s enchanters can do the same things, and so the Pharaoh is not so impressed with the two Israelites.  As the god of Israel knows and wants, Pharaoh’s heart turns hard in the face of these two pathetic hostage stooges of Israel.

6 Moses and Aaron did so. As Yahweh commanded them, so they did. 7 Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh. 8 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Perform a miracle!’ then you shall tell Aaron, ‘Take your rod, and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it become a serpent.’” 10 Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, as Yahweh had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers. They also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same thing with their enchantments. 12 For they each cast down their rods, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. 13 Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he didn’t listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken.

The First Plague: Blood

And so because the Pharaoh was not falling for the stunts of Moses and Aaron, two men who wanted to lead a nation of bandits to the borders of Egypt, the god of Israel now has just cause to bring his first plague upon Egypt.  He has Moses strike the Nile River with his staff and turns it into blood.  The river water cannot be drank by the Egyptian people for seven days.  But the Pharaoh’s men can do the same, and so the Pharaoh is not impressed and sticks with his stupid plan of holding the Israelites in eternal brutal captivity.  Only a few generations ago, the land of Egypt had been a prosperous nation of land owners.  But they opened their doors to Israel and they have paid the price.  The rivers of Egypt now run with blood, a foreshadowing for all the nations that will encounter Israel, even until now.

14 Yahweh said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn. He refuses to let the people go. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning. Behold, he goes out to the water; and you shall stand by the river’s bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand. 16 You shall tell him, ‘Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, “Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness:” and behold, until now you haven’t listened. 17 Yahweh says, “In this you shall know that I am Yahweh. Behold, I will strike with the rod that is in my hand on the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood. 18 The fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall become foul; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink water from the river.”’” 19 Yahweh said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Take your rod, and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their streams, and over their pools, and over all their ponds of water, that they may become blood; and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.’”20 Moses and Aaron did so, as Yahweh commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 21 The fish that were in the river died; and the river became foul, and the Egyptians couldn’t drink water from the river; and the blood was throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 The magicians of Egypt did the same thing with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he didn’t listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken. 23 Pharaoh turned and went into his house, and he didn’t even take this to heart. 24 All the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink; for they couldn’t drink the river water. 25 Seven days were fulfilled, after Yahweh had struck the river.

Exodus II – IV: Moses Returns To Egypt

Moses returns to Egypt after being conscripted by the god of Israel to be his messenger and prophet, the one who will lead Israel back to the land of Canaan, the land they will steal in savage conquest from the inhabiting Canaanites. Giving Moses a bag of Magic tricks and promises of a land running with milk and honey for the Israelites, the god of Israel sends Moses before the Pharaoh to demand the liberation of the Israelite slaves.  But as soon as Moses arrives back in Egypt everything gets worse for Israel, and Moses really begins to hate his new position.  But the god of Israel has a method to his madness.  Through suffering he is ripening both Israel and Egypt, and even the world for greater bloodshed, the coming wars will baptize the nation of Israel with the blood of innocents.

 

Exodus 5

World English Bible (WEB)

Pharaoh plays into their hands

The pair of Israeli sorcerers appear before Pharaoh.  So haughty are they that they think the Pharaoh will let Israel go on the command of their god, so that Israel may go out into the wilderness to “worship”.  Israel has already proven how manipulative and dangerous they are.  Almost all of Egypt’s problems can be blamed on the Israelites who took control of the central banking system of the nation and crashed the economy, all after the Egyptians had saved them from famine and starvation.  Israel as a whole cannot be trusted and the Pharaohs rightly fears that Israel will team up with Egypt’s enemies and come back to destroy them (not an unlikely scenario).  However, the Pharaohs are themselves corrupt and stupid and cannot find a better way of dealing with the problem of Israel.  Assimilation, assassination, isolation… any of these would be better alternatives to the Pharaoh’s response to this civilizational plight.  Angered with the antics of the two Israeli magicians, the Pharaoh increase the burdens of the now enslaved Israelites, heaping more injustices and inhumane conditions upon them.  This stupid cruelty is eroding all of the guilt of Israel and making Egypt into the sadist, all so cleverly designed.

Afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said to Pharaoh, “This is what Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, ‘Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.’” 2 Pharaoh said, “Who is Yahweh, that I should listen to his voice to let Israel go? I don’t know Yahweh, and moreover I will not let Israel go.” 3 They said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh, our God, lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword.” 4 The king of Egypt said to them, “Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens!” 5 Pharaoh said, “Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make them rest from their burdens.” 6 The same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying, 7 “You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick, as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. 8 The number of the bricks, which they made before, you require from them. You shall not diminish anything of it, for they are idle; therefore they cry, saying, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ 9 Let heavier work be laid on the men, that they may labor therein; and don’t let them pay any attention to lying words.”

Egyptian cruelty will reap sympathy

As ordered, the Pharaoh’s men go out into the fields and begin harassing the Israelites, telling them they must now perform other chores and keep up the same quote of bricks they have been producing.  When the Israelites are unable to keep up with these demands the Israeli officers are beaten.  Remember, these are descendants of the twelves sons of Jacob (the Twelve Tribes of Israel) who settled in and swindled Egypt a few generations earlier.  Unfortunately these Israelites are paying for the misdeeds of their ancestors.  But the Israelites spread death and destruction and misery in Egypt and kept it this way for generations, being unabashed parasites upon their host culture.  Surely they could have integrated and become part of Egypt if they wanted to, instead they harvested it dry.  Oh, but this story is not real you say?  So what!  This is a moral narrative; seeing that it is a code for living rather than history makes it ever more disturbing.

10 The taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, “This is what Pharaoh says: ‘I will not give you straw. 11 Go yourselves, get straw where you can find it, for nothing of your work shall be diminished.’” 12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw. 13 The taskmasters were urgent saying, “Fulfill your work quota daily, as when there was straw!” 14 The officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, “Why haven’t you fulfilled your quota both yesterday and today, in making brick as before?”15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, “Why do you deal this way with your servants? 16 No straw is given to your servants, and they tell us, ‘Make brick!’ and behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.”17 But he said, “You are idle! You are idle! Therefore you say, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to Yahweh.’ 18 Go therefore now, and work, for no straw shall be given to you, yet you shall deliver the same number of bricks!”

Moses full of regret

Moses sees what is happening to the Israelites and laments his positions as the so-called emissary of the god of Israel.  He sees the suffering of his people and questions the goodness of this deity who has brought nothing but bloodshed to his “chosen people”.  Moses accuses the gods of doing nothing to rescue these people.  It is so sad to see Moses struggle with is fate, he is beginning to see what a hellish nightmare this journey is going to be for him, he has become prescient as to the fate of himself and many of his fellow Israelis.  Moses and thousands of others in these camps will never be rescued by the god of Israel, but will be used as religious fodder and then dumped in the desert like waste.

19 The officers of the children of Israel saw that they were in trouble, when it was said, “You shall not diminish anything from your daily quota of bricks!”20 They met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came out from Pharaoh: 21 and they said to them, “May Yahweh look at you, and judge, because you have made us a stench to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to kill us.”22 Moses returned to Yahweh, and said, “Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Why is it that you have sent me? 23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people; and you have not rescued your people at all.”

 

Exodus 6

World English Bible (WEB)

Israel are his people

But the god of Israel overpowers Moses with his grandiose promises and consorts with him on his sick plans.  All this suffering is delightful to the god of Israel, you see he wants to be able to teach Egypt a lesson for seeing through the tricks of his people.  The colder and harder the hearts of the stupid Pharaohs become, the more justified the god will be in painfully destroying the innocent people of Egypt.  All the beatings and blood of the Israelites is like a narcotic rush to the god, who is delightfully counting all the sins being racked up against his people.  Israel are his chosen people, and he is going to give them the land of the Canaanites, because they are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Civilization after civilization will fall, no matter how good or noble or innocent, the deserts will flow with rivers of innocent blood to establish Israel. One manufactured conflict after another, all started by Israel, all ending with Israel as victim.

6 Yahweh said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh, for by a strong hand he shall let them go, and by a strong hand he shall drive them out of his land.”2 God spoke to Moses, and said to him, “I am Yahweh; 3 and I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty; but by my name Yahweh I was not known to them. 4 I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their travels, in which they lived as aliens. 5 Moreover I have heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered my covenant. 6 Therefore tell the children of Israel, ‘I am Yahweh, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm, and with great judgments: 7 and I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God; and you shall know that I am Yahweh your God, who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for a heritage: I am Yahweh.’”

Moses and Israel distraught

For obvious reasons, the Israelites are no longer interested in listening to Moses, no matter how many magic tricks the god of Israel has given him or what land he is promising them.  Now that Moses and the god of Israel have arrived, they are being whipped and worked to death.  They no longer want Moses’ to help them and Moses feels the same way.  Moses wants to quit this job.  But the god of Israel forces Moses to go before the Pharaoh again and demand the freedom of Israel.  The god of Israel has no interest in being loved or adored, only being obeyed, even unwillingly.  The sadistic god does not care who wants to follow him or not, he is going to capture and use these people to establish is cult nation in Canaan.  Moses and all of Israel are soon going to be his dominion of slaves.

9 Moses spoke so to the children of Israel, but they didn’t listen to Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage. 10 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 11 “Go in, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.” 12 Moses spoke before Yahweh, saying, “Behold, the children of Israel haven’t listened to me. How then shall Pharaoh listen to me, who am of uncircumcised lips?” 13 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and gave them a command to the children of Israel, and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

Genealogy of Moses

We quickly here learn Moses’ genealogy, which is important.  Moses like all of the Israelites of this time is of course a descendant of Abraham, and Abraham’s son Isaac, and Isaac’s son Jacob (a.k.a Israel).  Out of Israel’s twelve sons, Moses is a descendant of Levi and thus he is a “Levite”.  Levi had a son named Kohath who had a son named Amram who married his father’s sister Jochebed and gave birth to both Aaron and Moses. It is important that Moses and Aaron are Levites, because the Levites are soon to become the highest of the chosen people, a special caste of Israel with greater honors and privileges.  This however will be established through the clan’s willingness to sacrifice their own family members in blood.

Picture1

14 These are the heads of their fathers’ houses. The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi; these are the families of Reuben. 15 The sons of Simeon: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman; these are the families of Simeon. 16 These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari; and the years of the life of Levi were one hundred thirty-seven years. 17 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, according to their families. 18 The sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred thirty-three years. 19 The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations. 20 Amram took Jochebed his father’s sister to himself as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty-seven years. 21 The sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. 22 The sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri. 23 Aaron took Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, as his wife; and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 24 The sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. 25 Eleazar Aaron’s son took one of the daughters of Putiel as his wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers’ houses of the Levites according to their families. 26 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom Yahweh said, “Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.” 27 These are those who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt. These are that Moses and Aaron.

Moses is still reluctant

Still, Moses pleads with the god not to go before the Pharaoh, once again using his poor speaking skills as an excuse to get out of doing the job.  But the god of Israel is going to force Moses to go before the Pharaoh again, and things are going to keep getting worse until the god of Israel has exactly what he wants, a sea of demoralized Israelites and Egyptians who have lost their humanity and will fall right into his traps.  Things are about to get ugly.

28 On the day when Yahweh spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “I am Yahweh. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak to you.”30 Moses said before Yahweh, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh listen to me?”

Armageddon Invented: The Christian agenda in Israel/Palestine

Let me start off here by stating categorically that I do not support Palestine.  Why?  Because I don’t support any Islamic regime on earth.  Not supporting Israel is not the same as supporting Palestine, it is possible to support neither.  But the question naturally arises, if you are against Islam why wouldn’t you support Israel?  Even though I of course support social, civil, legal and military action against Islamic aggression, I cannot support choosing one group of Muslims randomly and slate them for expulsion and execution to fulfill biblical prophecy, especially when I know exactly where this biblical crusade is taking us. Contrary to popular belief, today’s Muslims who live in Palestine never expelled the Jews from the region, this is not a war of revenge, it’s a war for Armageddon and Christians are behind it.

WHY PALESTINE?

The idea that this land belongs to Jews is absurd. The history of this region reveals that no monotheistic faith can lay claim to it, but let’s start from the present. Before WWI the land now known as Israel/Palestine was called Palestine and was owned by the Ottoman Empire.  It was the Ottomans who populated the region with its current Muslims. These Muslims did not steal this land from the Jews, they took it from the Christians, who took it from the Pagans, who took it from the Jews who took it from the Pagans. More on that history later.

At the end of WWI Britain took much of what had once belonged to the Ottomans, including Palestine.  In 1917, Britain signed the Balfour Declaration, officially handing the land of Palestine over to Jewish Zionists.  But why the Jews?  The Jew had not owned that region for almost 2,000 years and they had taken it from the Pagans anyway.  The land had also been claimed by both Christians and Muslims at different times, and in 1917 the vast majority of the area was populated by Muslims.  What special claims did Jews have over this land?  The Bible.

According to the Bible, the Jews had taken this land from the Pagan Canaanites and they were commanded to expel by force any other group that inhabited it.  Both Christians and Jews were very upset that Muslims happened to be on this land, it was ruining their biblical prophecies.  For no other reason than because they were on biblical land, the Palestinian Muslims were randomly selected for invasion and expulsion by Jews with the support of Christians.  Jews began re-entering the region in 1917, many of these Jews took the bible’s command to cleanse the region of all other religions very seriously and began rounding up and killing the Palestinian people.  This of course ignited religious and ethnic conflict in the region.

After WWII, the region was flooded with Jewish refugees from Europe.  Both Zionists and their Christians allies decided that it was best to excelerate their bible based expulsion of Palestinian Muslims to make room for Jews and the creation of Israel.  The establishment of Israel in 1947 immediately plunged the region into a religious and ethnic war which has effected every nation on earth since. But why are so many nations, particularly the west, supporting this random invasion of one ethnic group of Muslims?  After all, these Muslims didn’t do anything more or less wrong than any other Muslims, in fact the Muslims of Palestine were particularly poor and uneducated, it wasn’t like it was a strategic hit. The answer is once again the bible.

Christian Zionists support the invasion of Palestine for two reason.  The first is that having Jews in the region rather than Muslims legitimizes the bible and thus the Christian religion.  But the Christians also have a much more sinister motive. The Christians are using their secret enemies the Jews to start a war of prophecy which they believe will hasten the 2nd coming of Christ. To understand what is going on here and how grave and serious a threat this really is, we must take a look at ancient history and the birth of both Judaism and Christianity.

According to secular scholarship, the Jews usurped and took the land of the original Canaanites/Phonecians of the region after the 2nd Millennium and established the monotheistic theocracy of Israel. After the establishment of their biblical kingdom in 1000 BC, Jews developed the draconian religion of the Old Testament along with their messianic prophecies, envisioning a king who would one day lead the earth to recognizing the one true religion of Israel. The Jews quickly fell into civil war as many tribes rebelled against the new religion.  Within a few generations the Jews were so divided and weakened by internal wars that they first lost much of their territory to Assyria and then in 607 BC Jerusalem was sacked by Babylon and the remaining Jews were taken captive.

THE PHARISEES AND THE TALMUD 

It was during their Babylonian captivity that the Jews began putting the bible into writing, but they also invented many new “oral traditions” which would later be written down the Babylonian Talmud.  Unlike the story of the bible which described the Jews at their height of power, the oral traditions which were to become the Babylonian Talmud were formulated during times when the Jews were the subjects of Babylon and so they needed to be very careful about what they said and how they did things.  The Talmud is not as direct and straightforward as the Old Testament, but it is indeed more dangerous.  It was during this time that the Jews better formulated the plan on how to make the world recognize the one true religion of Israel, and we will talk about that plan momentarily.

In 539 BC, Persia under Cyrus the great defeated Babylon and took all of its territories.  The Jews were permitted to return to the land they had taken from the Phoenicians and Canaanites, but they were still under Persian rule.  When the Jews returned to Israel they divided into two groups.  The first group was the Sadducees, the Sadducees didn’t like the new oral traditions that would soon become the Babylonian Talmud and recognized only the Old Testament.  The second group was the Pharisees, the Pharisees were the Jews who accepted the new oral traditions as supreme.  Fights broke out between the two groups about who were the real Jews, but in the end the Pharisees and their oral traditions dominated Jewish society. Meanwhile, the land of Israel passed from Persia to Greece and finally was annexed by Rome in 63BC.

JEWS AND CHRISTIANS MORTAL ENEMIES 

It was during the time of the Roman period that supposedly a man named Jesus appeared on the scene and claimed to be the messiah who would lead the world to the one true religion of Israel.  Jesus sided with the Sadducees and despised the oral traditions soon to be encoded into the Talmud by the Pharisees.  The New Testament is full of rebukes by both Jesus and his apostles of the Pharisees and their new customs and laws.  According to the New Testament the Pharisees eventually conspired to have Jesus executed by the Romans. However, even in death Jesus became extremely popular among the Jews of the region and his cult spread. At the time, the Jews had not yet written their new holy book the Babylonian Talmud, and so later the Pharisees were sure to add many passages about Jesus and his followers. According to the Talmud Jesus was a cruel and sadistic sex sorcerer who lead his followers into prostitution.  Christians are spoken of in very cruel and disparaging ways in the Talmud.  Most importantly, Christians are identified as “idolaters” and heretics in the Talmud, given the specific label “minuth”. Of course, the Christians and the Pharisee Jews became intense enemies. The Christians insisted that the Talmudic Pharisees were fake Jews and that the Christians followed the original bible and Jesus was the Jewish messiah.  These accusations of the Pharisees being “fake Jews” are very important to why Christians support the colonization of Palestine today.

In 70AD, the Romans became fed up with the Jews and their religion and completely destroyed Jerusalem, killing much of the Jewish population.  The region was named Palestine after the original Pagan Philistines who inhabited the area and Palestine remained the name of the region until the birth of modern day Israel. The remaining Jews were only allowed to practice their religion if they payed a special tax. In 135CE the Pagan Roman Emperor Hadrian rebuilt Jerusalem as a Pagan city and expelled all Jews from the region. Please notice here that it was Pagan Romans who expelled the Jews from the land they had stole from the Canaanites, not Muslims.  Islam would not be invented for another 600 years. Meanwhile, the Roman Empire converted to Christianity and 335 CE the Christian Emperor Constantine turned Jerusalem into a pilgrimage site for Christians.  Under Christian Roman rule, Jews were still banned from the city as Jews and Christians had developed poor relations. After the birth of Islam the region was fought over my Christians and Muslims for centuries, going back and forth between the two religions until it finally ended up in the hands of the Muslim Ottoman Empire.

SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN 

So why are Christians now supporting the re-colonization of Israel?  It took some time for Christians to complete their New Testament of the bible. The last book of the Christian scriptures is a book called Revelations. The book of Revelations describes a great deception where the earth is brought to believe in a false messiah who brings about a one world government and begins to persecute the remaining faithful Christians. This false messiah then plunges the earth into a horrific war which kills off most of the population.  After this horrific war Jesus returns to rule the earth and heavens and creates a Christian utopia.  The book of Revelations 3:9 makes a very eerie reference to the “fake Jews” role in creating this war:

“I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars–I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.”

Many Christians today believe that the Talmudic Zionist Jews who are reconquering Israel are indeed this “synagogue of Satan” or fake Talmudic Jew.  But what are the Jews of Israel doing that would create a false messiah or a one world government that could possibly fulfill the Christian biblical prophecies? The answer comes from the Babylonian Talmud.  According to the Talmud, all humans are the descendants of Noah, a Jewish patriarch who supposedly survived a worldwide flood thousands of years ago.  The Talmud states in the books of Sanhedrin 56a-57b that the god of Israel gave Noah seven commands which apply to all mankind; these seven commandments are 1) do not practice idolatry 2) do not blaspheme the god of Israel 3) do not practice sexual immorality 4) do no eat flesh cut from living animals 5) do no steal 6) do not murder and 7) establish courts of justice to ensure these laws are being followed by all of humanity.  Anyone who transgresses these laws is to be decapitated. But are the Zionists really trying to impose Noahide Law on the earth today?

NOAHIDE LAW

In 1991 President George W. Bush signed Public Law 102-14.  The law asserts that the Seven Noahide Laws are the basis of American civilizations, that it is the responsibility of the Nation to transmit these values to future generations, and that at some future date and time the president of the United States with other heads of state will sign an international scroll pledging to return the world to Noahide Law by use of charity and education. The law also commemorates the birth of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, in celebration of his dedication to returning the world to the Seven Noahide Laws.

In 1999 the Supreme Court of the Unites States accepted a “Talmudic Execution” brief. The Lewin legal team submitted an amicus curiae brief to the American Supreme Court arguing that the Talmud can be used as an ethical guideline for execution methods in the United States and also argued that Talmudic modes of execution (including decapitation) are more humane than current secular methods. The brief was reviewed and authorized by former Deputy President of the Supreme Court of Israel, the Honorable Menachem Elon.

On Nov 9th, 2002 in Washington DC, the International Institute for Judaic Law launched in the US Supreme Court. Jewish legal experts created a new institute to educate jurists and others about Jewish law and to promote its application to contemporary legal disputes and other modern-day issues. The launched was held at a kosher dinner at the Supreme Court and was attended by 200 people, including three Supreme Court Justices – Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer, and Antonin Scalia. US President George W. Bush sent greetings and applauded the institute for promoting an “understanding of Judaism’s rich tradition of legal thought.” Alyza Lewin and her father Nathan Lewin helped establish the institute, the same legal team that submitted the Talmudic Execution brief before the Supreme Court two years earlier. Rabbi Dr. Norson Gurary, who teaches at the State University of New York at Buffalo, thought up the idea of the institute about nine months previously. “By demonstrating the philosophy of Jewish law and its moral values, we can bring a little beacon of light in this world,” Gurary said. “I think this is what we need now, in this day and age.”

On Sept 28th, 2005 in the USA and Israel, the Sanhedrin which is the highest legal authority in Judaism established the Noahide High Council. According to reports from the Israeli National News: “The purpose of the council, which was the brainchild of Rabbi Avraham Toledano, is to assist the B’nei Noach in their struggle to observe the word of G-d. “The goal is to unify, serve and organize all kosher B’nei Noach communities of the world under a single body that can operate under the direct authority and supervision of the Sanhedrin,” the decision to establish the body reads. “To form a vessel through which the Torah, from Zion (via the Sanhedrin) can effectively serve non-Jewish communities around the world.“A third goal of the creation of the High Council and the Sanhedrin’s efforts in regard to the Noahide community, is to “transform the Noahide movement from a religious phenomenon – a curiosity many have not heard of – into a powerful international movement that can successfully compete with, and with G-d’s help bring about the fall of, any religious movement but the pure authentic faith that was given to humanity through Noach, the father of us all,” said emissary Bar-Ron.”

On January 10th, 2006 in Israel, the Noahide “High Council” appeared before the Sanhedrin to pledge their loyalty to Noahide Law and recognize the authority of the hereditary priesthood of the Sanhedrin. The Noahides agreed to spread the Noahide Religion worldwide and to never doubt or criticize the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin conveyed that this mission is dangerous because their will soon be conflicts with Christians and Muslims over Noahidism. The Sanhedrin plans to use modern communication technology to spread Noahidism to the globe rapidly.

WHY CHRISTIAN ZIONISM?

So why are known Christian leaders in American like George W. H. Bush, his son George W. Bush and Supreme course justice Antonin Scalia supporting Noahide Law?  Why are they allowing the Zionist Jews of Israel to spread the Noahide religion?  To fulfill their biblical prophecies.  Noahide Law fills the four requirements for Christian Armageddon as detailed in the book of Revelation. First, Noahide Law is an international law and it is centralized in Israel, thus it would create a single one world government as predicted by Christians.  Second, Noahide Law will eventually persecute Christians since according to the Talmud Christians are heretics and idolaters, and so they will either have to convert to Noahidism or be decapitated. Third, the man who spearheaded the Noahide movement, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, is considered by a minority of Jews to be the messiah, and so Christians hope that perhaps he could be the false messiah they have been waiting for… if not him than they can wait for another false messiah to rise in Israel.  Finally and most importantly, the Christians rightfully believe that the Israel/Palestine war could cause a massive worldwide catastrophe that would kill off the majority of the world’s population and signal the return of their Christ.

This is the sad and scary reality of what is going on is Israel/Palestine.  As stated at the beginning of this article, the purpose here is not to support the Palestinians or Islam.  However, there are better ways of going about dealing with the threat of Islam than randomly selecting a group of poor and rather uneducated Muslims for expulsion and execution because they just so happened to be living on biblical lands, especially when the reason for doing so is to fulfill biblical prophecies. Islam is a dangerous religion, but so is Judeo-Christianity.  We don’t need to feed one beast to kill the other.

Israel-Palestine[1]

16 Things You Didn’t Know About The History Of Israel/Palestine

1. The land of Israel/Palestine was originally called Canaan

2. The land originally belonged to Pagans, not Jews, Muslims or Christians

3. The land was named “Israel” after the Jews conquered the land after the 2nd millennium BC, driving out the Canaanite polytheists and establishing biblical rule.  ”Israel” was a name given to a Jewish patriarchs who was also known as Jabob.  According to Jewish legend Jacob was one of the craftiest and most successful Jewish thieves of the bible. 


4. Immediately after they established their monotheist theocracy in 1000 BC, the Jews fell into a series of civil wars as many of the people attempted to return to Paganism.  The Jews also gained many enemies in the region as their religion mandated territorial expansionism in the name of their god.  


5. The monotheistic biblical kingdom of Israel was eventually invaded and usurped by Pagan Assyria followed by Pagan Babylon.  When Persia conquered Babylon in 536 BC, they allowed the monotheist Jews to resettle in the biblical land of Israel.  After the Persians, the land once known as Canaan was taken by the Pagan Greeks and then finally by the Pagan Romans in 63BC.


6. It was during this time of Roman rule that a supposed Jewish messiah named Jesus started the religious movement that would eventually be called Christianity. 


7. Jews who believed that Jesus was indeed the prophesied Jewish Messiah began preaching the new faith in Asia and Europe. 

8. Meanwhile, 70 years after the birth of Christianity, Pagan Rome completely destroyed the Jewish city of Jerusalem and sent most of the Jews out into the diaspora.  The land was returned to Pagan rule and Israel was renamed “Palestine” for the pagan Philistine tribe which once inhabited the land. 

 

9. The Jewish cult of Christianity eventually conquered Europe though a mix of conversions and the sword.  In 335 AD the Christian Emperor of Rome  named Constantine rebuilt Jerusalem not as a Jewish city but as a Christian center of worship and it was renamed Aelia Capitolina.  The Christians had developed bad relations with their mother religion of Judaism, and so Jews were banned from the district even during Christian Roman rule.


10. Later, the district of Palestine was handed over to the Christian Byzantine Empire.


11. In the early 600s, Jewish and Christian theology had found its way to the Arabian peninsula where it mixed with Arabian Paganism and under the influence of a man named Mohammad and became known as Islam. 

 

12. In 637 AD, Christian Jerusalem was invaded my Islamic conquerors, and the land of Canaan fell to a series of Islamic Caliphates. 


13. In 1099, Christians retook Jerusalem during the Crusades and established “The Kingdom of Jerusalem”, killing most the the Muslim and remaining Jewish population.

14. The Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem lasted until 1187 when it was retaken by Egyptian Muslims under Saladin. 

15. From the 1200s to the 1500s the region was reconquered by Christians and passed between several Christian kingdoms, until the land finally fell to the Islamic Ottoman Empire in 1517.  The Ottomans populated the area now known as Israel with its current Muslim population. 


16. In WWI Christian Britain won the area known as Palestine from the Islamic Ottomans, and under the Balfour Declaration the Christian British deeded the land to the Jews because they believed it was their biblical right to own it. 

 

 

And that is what started the modern Israel/Palestine conflict
