Predicting the Next French Revolution

marieantoinetteexecute-a8b7aa02f3a17f0904724853bbfc83dc2b9c738a-s6-c30Some people see events and they don’t have any meaning for them because they don’t know enough to understand the meaning and the way things are connected, so they don’t know what is going to happen next.  There are two facts that I used to generate this prediction.  

FACT #1

The French Government resigned.

Montebourg at the weekend said deficit-reduction measures carried out since the 2008 financial crisis were crippling the euro zone’s economies and urged governments to change course or lose their voters to populist and extremist parties. 

Finance Minister Michel Sapin acknowledged this month that weak growth would mean France missing its deficit-reduction target for this year but stressed the government would continue cutting the deficit “at an appropriate pace”.  http://www.cnbc.com/id/101943485#.

FACT #2

15% of France supports ISIS.

Up to 15 percent of French people said they have a positive attitude toward the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The share of ISIS supporters is largest among France’s younger generation, a new poll says.  http://rt.com/news/181076-isis-islam-militans-france/

Rabbi Ba’al Shivah, the Hindu Hebrew connection.

wall-hanging-hamsa-eye-chai-red-blue--white-small-1

Today I am going to discuss some of the similarities between the Hebrews and the Hindus with my atheist friends and explain some of my ideas on the mind and psychology for them.  Above we see the Hamsa, which was originally used by the Jains in India.  Even the word Hamsa comes from the Indian word ahimsa, which means:

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:[1]avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘to not injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings including animals according to many Indian religions.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa

We see that the Hamsa is actually a stylized penis, masquerading as a hand, hands by their very nature are not equilateral, the Shiva lingam represents Shiva’s penis. 

The lingam (also, linga, ling, Shiva linga, Shiv ling, Sanskrit लिङ्गं, liṅgaṃ, meaning “mark”, “sign”, or “inference”[1][2]) is a representation of the Hindu deity Shiva used for worship in temples.[3] In traditional Indian society, the linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potential of the God.[4][4][5][6][7]

The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy.[8] The union of lingam and yoni represents the “indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates”.[9]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_Linga

Shiva being the God of Death is also at the same time the God of life.  

OmNamahShivaya_3887

Even if you look at the similarities between the so called “horned alphabet” and sanskrit you see similarities.  Hebrew was a revolutionary language for a secretive people, it was simplified and modified from sanskrit making it easier to use, it was the language of revolt, Kabbalists have always been very secretive in their communication of revolutionary ideas.  

Origins of the word[edit]

The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian Cabala, Hermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.[citation needed]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word

Have you ever considered the meaning of Moses finding the Hebrew god on Mount Sinai?  

According to some biblical scholars[who?], Horeb is thought to mean “glowing/heat”, which seems to be a reference to the sun, whileSinai may have derived from the name of Sin, the Sumerian deity of the moon,[3][4] and thus Sinai and Horeb would be the mountains of the moon and sun, respectively.

Interesting that Shiva himself is a moon god, is it not?  I frankly think that the burning bush was marijuana, the Aghori shaivists smoke massive amounts of marijuana, and then meditate in grave yards.  

ash

Because the Jews were aware of psychology, when they were a warring tribe if you killed in battle you had to sit Shiva and meditate for 7 days before you were clean (kosher) and allowed back into the city.  My nom de plume means, Lord of Meditation, because in my slaying of the ego I have killed more than anybody else.  

The Hebrew word “shiva” means “seven”, and the official shiva period is seven days. The day of the funeral is counted as the first day of shiva, even though the practice does not begin until after the mourner(s) arrive at the designated location following the funeral.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Length_of_shiva

Shiva was a wandering philosopher, India was famous as being a source of wandering philosophers that went walkabout and took their traditions far and wide.  When he went to a strange land he would sleep in the grave yard because he was surrounded by an entourage of disembodied spirits to which he ministered, this is not bizarre in the Kabbalist tradition, many rabbis are known to have angelic and even demonic familiars with which they can be seen conversing. 

Below we see the Origins of the muslim epithet, “shayateen”. 

Had you been a cartographer and geographer working for the British East India company in the 17th and 18th centuries, you would have found all over India thousands of Hebrew-like place names with similar meanings in both languages as well. The map excerpt on this page shows a small section of ancient Seuna-Desa (Zion Land) in what is now Maharashtra (to right). At the bottom right of the excerpt is the city of Paithan, on the banks of the river Godivari. The Indo-Hebrews named the part of the river passing through Paithan’s territory Paithan (Pison, Phison), according to their traditions. In the upper left-hand corner is the city of Satana. According to the legends of the Yadavas (Indo-Hebrews), Satana would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorah envious. The Seunas and the Satanas decided to resolve their moral and religious differences on the battlefield. The forces of “Satan” lost, but their defeat didn’t dishearten them. Eventually, we came to think of “Satan” as a being who lost the battle but not the war. The bible tells us that such a peace treaty hasn’t yet been signed between these two ancient enemies.

Later in that same article it says this:

Holger Kersten wrote in Jesus Lived in India,

“The relation between ancient Israel and Kashmiri can most clearly be demonstrated linguistically. Kashmirian is different from all the other Indian languages, the origins of which are Sanskrit. The development of the language of Kashmir has been greatly influenced by the Hebrew. Abdul Ahad Azad writes, ‘The language of Kashmir derives from Hebrew.’ According to tradition, in ancient times Jewish peoples settled here, whose language changed into the Kashmirian of today. There are many Hebrew words that are quite obviously connected with the language of Kashmir.” (pp. 68-69.)

24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”  Matthew 12: 24

The pharisees who were practicing the old Abrahamic law code essentially accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan.  Are you starting to see the connection here?  Instead of denying it, Jesus mentions the Temple of Solomon, and makes a reference to a house being divided against itself.  Solomon built gods temple by enslaving spirits and forcing them to do his bidding.  Then he turns it around on the Pharisees and asks them by what power they themselves cast out demons.  

It has recently occurred to me that their is a huge similarity between the phonology of the words Shayateen and Chaitanya.  

The Sanskrit word, Chaitanya, means ‘consciousness’ or ‘universal soul’ or ‘spirit’ or ‘intelligence’ or ‘sensation’.[1][2] It is the pure Consciousness or the cosmic intelligence, the consciousness that knows itself and also knows others.[3] It also means energy or enthusiasm.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaitanya_(consciousness)

If you remember the Muslims hate the color saffron, which is the color of the robes of the Sarasvati order monks. Notice too the familiar phonology of the word Charlatan and what Mohammed said about Shaytan, he is the whisperer.  Remember that Mary Magdalene moved to France after Jesus alleged death.  Remember too that Proto-indo-european is more or less a fact.  I, being a phonologist, track the movements of ideas across countries and through time.   

The word comes from Frenchcharlatan, a seller of medicines who might advertise his presence with music and an outdoor stage show. The best known of the Parisian charlatans was Tabarin, who set up a stage in the Place Dauphine, Paris in 1618, and whose commedia dell’arte inspired skits and whose farces inspired Molière. The word can also be traced toSpanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox. Ultimately, etymologists trace “charlatan” from either theItalianciarlare, to prattle; or from Cerretano, a resident of Cerreto, a village in Umbria, known for its quacks.[1]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlatan

Imagine if you will the Pharisees bursting in and yelling, “Shayateen!  Charlatan!  Chaitanya!”.  Remember that they reject thought, they reject consciousness, they avoid thinking as much as possible.  They fear intelligence.  

I am familiar with the word Chaitanya because my Shaktipat Initiatore, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda has a root word in her name.  Her name means, Energy = chit, moves= vilas= velocity, bliss= ananda, Sarasvati order monks adopt the suffix “ananda”.  The word Chit, energy, comes from Chaitanya, consciousness.  The words Chi, ki, come from this root as well as the words Chan and Zen.  

Now it is no secret that I think Abraham and Brahma are the same being historically, I am not the first person to think this, many others have come to the same conclusion.  If you observe closely you will find many similarities between the marriages of Brahman families and Chassidic jews, what is of interest is that the Aghori, the lingayats, and the Kashmir Shaivists rejected more or less the authority of the Brahman priest class, who are very much like the muslims adhering to the old Abrahamic law code.  The lingayats, were poets and mystics, they wore a shiva lingam around their neck and they had a personal relationship with god, and no mediator separating them from god.  They had their own nickname for Shiva, and they visualized him in a form that was sacred to themselves.  It was very much a personal relationship with god.

According to Heinrich Zimmer, whose work was edited and published posthumously by Joseph Campbell, there is only on Temple for Brahma, and the vast majority of demons worshiped Brahma.  This is of further interest when you consider that the Indian demons look so much like Muslims.

The Secret Society War Rabbi Baal Shivah part 1.

Skull-Bones

 

It has taken me a while to write this piece because of seeing the masks of all of the secret societies slip.  Being bombarded on a daily basis with propaganda from “news stations”  it is difficult to know what to believe.  Let me demonstrate a little Jewish exegesis for you. 

genesis 30: 

29Jacob said to him, “You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock has fared under my care. 30The little you had before I came has increased greatly, and the Lord has blessed you wherever I have been. But now, when may I do something for my own household?”

31“What shall I give you?” he asked.

“Don’t give me anything,” Jacob replied. “But if you will do this one thing for me, I will go on tending your flocks and watching over them: 32Let me go through all your flocks today and remove from them every speckled or spotted sheep, every dark-colored lamb and every spotted or speckled goat. They will be my wages. 33And my honesty will testify for me in the future, whenever you check on the wages you have paid me. Any goat in my possession that is not speckled or spotted, or any lamb that is not dark-colored, will be considered stolen.”

37Jacob, however, took fresh-cut branches from poplar, almond and plane trees and made white stripes on them by peeling the bark and exposing the white inner wood of the branches. 38Then he placed the peeled branches in all the watering troughs, so that they would be directly in front of the flocks when they came to drink. When the flocks were in heat and came to drink, 39they mated in front of the branches. And they bore young that were streaked or speckled or spotted. 40Jacob set apart the young of the flock by themselves, but made the rest face the streaked and dark-colored animals that belonged to Laban. Thus he made separate flocks for himself and did not put them with Laban’s animals. 41Whenever the stronger females were in heat, Jacob would place the branches in the troughs in front of the animals so they would mate near the branches,42but if the animals were weak, he would not place them there. So the weak animals went to Laban and the strong ones to Jacob. 43In this way the man grew exceedingly prosperous and came to own large flocks, and female and male servants, and camels and donkeys.

What does this actually mean?  It is a reference to the impact of controlling what the eye sees.  Those who control what you see control what you think, and in controlling what you think they control what you do and they also control your options, and you essentially a possession, part of a thought herd, unbeknownst to yourself. 

Rupert-Murdoch

“Mr Murdoch is entitled to his own view… he owns 70% of thenewspapers in this country.” – Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd,

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2013/aug/08/rupert-murdoch-own-70-newspapers

By all accounts, the unexpected break for Murdoch in the Russian ad market came in 2002 after the assassination of Vladimir Kanevsky, then the billboard king of Moscow.

High Occult Science for Fidem Turbare

Silence

Part of the responsibility that I have taken on myself is to explain to leaders of the Atheist communities, who are capable of understanding, the deeper occult philosophy and meaning behind some of the religions, that these religions were indeed created by Deists and not Theists, (with the exception of Islam which was created by a violent, illiterate, child rapist, and by illiterate I mean he couldn’t read) I wanted to explain to Fidem some of the experiences she herself is going through as explained by kabbalah and Aleister Crowley’s poetry being that he was conversant in multiple different systems, as I am, to see if she gleans anything useful from it. 

Below is the tree of life, it is a Qabbalist metaphor and a memory peg system.  The theory of everything was created a long time ago by men that I refer to as the super-genii.  They didn’t have computers back in the day so they had to remember things by uploading these memory peg systems.  The curious thing about these systems is after a period of time forcing yourself to use them the system seems to start organizing information for you.  We do have cellular memory and their is a portion of ourselves that recognizes and remembers this system and reactivates.  The ancient super-genii weren’t a little smarter than we are today, they were a lot smarter, as we will see.

Tree_of_Life_2009_large

If one were to take the philosophy of astrology (prior to the discoveries 7 original planet system) and over lap it with the tree of life, and overlay that with the major tarot arcanum, you would have the fully fleshed out theory of everything. The reason that I say the theory of everything is that everything only makes sense or can make sense to the human brain.  It is the human brain that makes sense of everything, the human brain is an important component in the universe.

Qabalah has been called “the western meditation tradition” and indeed it links us back to the traditions of India being the western version of the chakra system.  Qabalah is jewish mysticism based on the Zohar, in a manner of speaking “Zohar” means light.  What is fascinating is that most jews are forbidden to study Qabbalah and even the ones that are doing it aren’t doing it correctly anymore because of an innate fear instilled in them by Jewish religious leaders.  They confuse being Jewish with being able to do Qabbalah correctly, but most of them are told to focus on the path workings, which means they never get around to meditating on the sephiroth.  This is done to give them a sense that they are studying Qabalah without ever getting anything from it.  Part of this problem comes from the fact that every time there has been a Qabbalist renaissance, their has been a revolution.  The last qabbalist renaissance was in Spain about 300 years ago, right before the Jews got kicked out of Spain.

zohan

Qabbalah, in essence, is a reinterpretation of the scripture, the Jewish religion predisposes itself to this kind of plasticity because the Pentateuch, the first  5 books of the bible, the extended version of god’s name has been devowelated, thereby predisposing itself to controversy and different interpretations, this creates a pattern something like the Sanatana Dharma inside the Jewish faith, since nobody can ultimately prove their absolute correctness or the absolute incorrectness of anybody else and since you can’t change a single letter of the pentateuch on threat of death, their is a type of equality cemented between Jews with different interpretations of the Scripture.  When times are bad on returns to the scripture and reinterprets it to remain faithful to the ancestors and still to maintain an identity in a time of turbulent change and in this manner retaining the wisdom of the Fathers.

Origins of the word[edit]

The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian CabalaHermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word

A political cult is a cult with a primary interest in political action and ideology.[86][87] Groups that some writers have termed as “political cults,” mostly advocating far-left or far-right agendas, have received some attention from journalists and scholars. In their 2000 book On the Edge: Political Cults Right and Left, Dennis Tourish and Tim Wohlforth discuss about a dozen organizations in the United States and Great Britain that they characterize as cults.[88]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult#Political_cults

NOW HERE IS THE PART THAT APPLIES TO YOU FIDEM

Technically, Fidem, you are highly spiritually and morally evolved, I realized this as soon as I met you, I know that you have French Jewish DNA.  Mary Magdalene went to France after Jesus death, with a girl named Black Sara or Kali Sara, you Fidem are a Kali monad, specifically this one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga)  There was a Qabbalist renaissance in France too, the Cathars, they claimed that the Roman Catholic Church was too motivated by money, and the RCC sacked the castle.

You Fidem are in the top 1% of society as far as morality and higher philosophy go.  Most people can’t get as high as you are in 1,000 life times.  You will prove this to yourself over time.  People have their ceilings, I would direct you to the linguistic barrier in philosophy if you want to go as high as you can.

NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS WEIRD

All of the sephiroth below the supernal triad are in da’ath, the sephiroth that doesn’t exist, because the Jews were the cult of 10, they were obsessed with the number 10, they are the source of the decimal system.  10 commandments, tithing, 10 plagues, etc.

daath1

tithe (/ˈtð/; from Old Englishteogoþa “tenth”) is a one-tenth part of something, paid as a contribution to a religious organization or compulsory tax to government.[1] Today, tithes are normally voluntary and paid in cashcheques, orstocks, whereas historically tithes were required and paid in kind, such as agricultural products. Several European countries operate a formal process linked to the tax system allowing some churches to assess tithes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tithe

Oh, wait, I forgot something, I have to go back.  All of the patriarchs of the bible are associated with systems of magick, which is why they were written into the bible in the form of a mythological allegory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abramelin_the_Mage

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enochian_magic

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6th_and_7th_Books_of_Moses

The 6th and 7th books of Moses form the basis of modern voodoo.  When you are fighting an enemy that has all of the resources with no resources you use voodoo.  The 10 plagues were a form of Voodoo.  The last plague was an evocation of Azrael, the Archangel of death.

Back to you.  As I was saying before the 7 sephiroth below Da’ath are in Da’ath.  Da’ath is considered the abyss, the attempt of the wizard/guru is to cross the abyss.  The Dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns is the ultimate power in the abyss, the physical world, any light you bring into the world marginalizes it’s authority and wounds it’s ego.  That corresponds to the 7 chakras, Jesus removed 7 demons from Mary Magdalene, he brought her to spiritual perfection.  She was his main student.  He succeeded in bringing the true religion to the west but not through the RCC instead rather through Freemasonry, the Western Guru Tradition, of which he was a member as was Shams, Rumi’s inspiration.

id, ego, superego

The Dragon is ego consciousness, it can control everybody in ego consciousness.  When you cross the abyss you are in super ego and no longer under the influence of the ego consciousness.  Not being able to get to you or at you the dragon attacks those close to you turning them on you.  Anybody in ego consciousness is a potential danger.

Fiona

What you are experiencing right now is called the curse of the Magus.  Da’ath corresponds to the visuddha chakra or the voice.  Pay close attention to Scriptures 19 and 20…

Liber B
vel Magi
sub Figura I

00. One is the Magus; twain His forces; four His weapons. These are the Seven Spirits of Unrighteousness; seven vultures of evil. Thus is the art and craft of the Magus but glamour. How shall He destroy Himself?

0. Yet the Magus hath power upon the Mother both directly and through Love. And the Magus is Love, and bindeth together That and This in his conjuration.

1. In the beginning doth the Magus speak Truth, and send forth Illusion and Falsehood to enslave the soul. Yet therein is the Mystery of Redemption.

2. By His Wisdom made He the Worlds; the Word that is God is none other than He.

3. How then shall He end His speech with Silence? For He is Speech.

4. He is the first and the last. How shall He cease to number Himself?

5. By a Magus is this writing made known through the mind of a Magister. The one uttereth clearly, and the other understandeth; yet the Word is falsehood, and the Understanding darkness. And this saying is Of All Truth.

6. Nevertheless it is written; for there be times of darkness, and this as a lamp therein.

7. With the Wand createth He.

8. With the Cup preserveth He.

9. With the Dagger destroyeth He.

10. With the Coin redeemeth He.

11. His weapons fulfil the wheel; and on What Axle that turneth is not known unto Him.

12. From all these actions must He cease before the curse of His Grade is uplifted from Him. Before He attain to That which existeth without Form.

13. And if at this time He be manifested upon earth as a Man, and therefore is this present writing, let this be His method, that the curse of His grade, and the burden of His attainment, be uplifted from Him.

14. Let Him beware of abstinence from action. For the curse of His grade is that He must speak Truth, that the Falsehood thereof may enslave the souls of men. Let him then utter that without Fear, that the Law may be fulfilled. And according to His Original Nature will that law be shapen, so that one may declare gentleness and quietness, being an Hindu; and another fierceness and servility, being a Jew; and yet another ardour and manliness, being an Arab. Yet this matter toucheth the mystery of Incarnation, and is not here to be declared.

15. Now the grade of a Magister teacheth the Mystery of Sorrow, and the grade of a Magus the Mystery of Change, and the grade of Ipsissimus the Mystery of Selflessness, which is called also the Mystery of Pan.

16. Let the Magus then contemplate each in turn, raising it to the ultimate power of Infinity. Wherein Sorrow is Joy, and Change is Stability, and Selflessness is Self. For the interplay of the parts hath no action upon the whole. And this contemplation shall be performed not by simple meditation— how much less then by reason? but by the method which shall have been given unto Him in His Initiation to the Grade.

17. Following which method, it shall be easy for Him to combine that trinity from its elements, and further to combine Sat-Chit-Ananda, and Light, Love, Life, three by three into nine that are one, in which meditation success shall be That which was first adumbrated to Him in the grade of Practicus (which reflecteth Mercury into the lowest world) in Liber XXVII, “Here is Nothing under its three Forms.”

18. And this is the Opening of the Grade of Ipsissimus, and by the Buddhists it is called the trance Nerodha-Samapatti.

19. And woe, woe, woe, yea woe, and again woe, woe, woe unto seven times be His that preacheth not His law to men!

20. And woe also be unto Him that refuseth the curse of the grade of a Magus, and the burden of the Attainment thereof.

21. And in the word CHAOS let the Book be sealed; yea, let the Book be sealed.

You are beyond the abyss, don’t cling to anything in the abyss for your own sake.  Speak your truth.  I know that you have had some interesting experiences, one might refer to them as spiritual or supernatural.  There is such a thing as magick, but very few people can actually use it.  First you have to become the philosopher king, removing all of the cognitive biases and logical fallacies.  Once you have done this things will start to happen.  They are already happening for you.

Siddhis[note 1] are spiritual, magicalparanormal, or supernatural powers acquired through sadhana (spiritual practices), such asmeditation and yoga.[1] People who have attained this state are formally known as siddhas.[2]

Etymology[edit]

Siddhi is a Sanskrit noun which can be translated as “perfection”, “accomplishment”, “attainment”, or “success”.[3] In Tamil the word Siddhar/Chitthar refers to someone who has attained the Siddhic powers & knowledge. Chith is pure consciousness/knowledge in Sanskrit also.

Rabbi Ba’al Shiva connects the dots from the Battle of Thermopylae to Gideon.

Is the bible true?  Yes, but not literally.  From my perspective it is a mythological allegory for real historical events.  Not only did the people writing the bible not take it literally, they weren’t the same people.  Some of the Books of the Bible have Persian words, Israel was continually being reconquered by Persia and then re educated and then escaping yet again.  The Bible tells a story of a struggle to once and for all be free of the corrupt relationship with this tyrannical eastern force.  Often times these people had to tell their stories in a concealed metaphorical way so that other parties would not be directly offended, but at the same time the truth of the matter could be ferreted out with study and meditation.

Pardes (Jewish exegesis)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

  • Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “plain” (“simple”) or the direct meaning.[1]
  • Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
  • Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
  • Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘bone’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.

We know that the Jews Hellenized and absorbed the Greek Culture and philosophy.

Hellenistic Judaism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hellenistic Judaism was a form of Judaism in the ancient world that combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Greek culture. Until the fall of the Roman Empire and the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria (Egypt) and Antioch (Northern Syria—now Turkey), the two main Greek urban settlements of the Middle East and North Africa area, both founded at the end of the 4th century BCE in the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great. Hellenistic Judaism also existed in Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period, where there was conflict between Hellenizers and traditionalists (sometimes called Judaizers).

The major literary product of the contact of Second Temple Judaism and Hellenistic culture is the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible from Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic to Koiné Greek, specifically, Jewish Koiné Greek.

The decline of Hellenistic Judaism started in the 2nd century CE, and its causes are still not fully understood. It may be that it was eventually marginalized by, partially absorbed into or became progressively the Koiné-speaking core of “Early Christianity” centered around Antioch and its “universalist” tradition — see most notably Paul of Tarsus and Judaismand the Abrogation of Old Covenant laws.

I am going to tell you an interesting little story, and point out some similarities that you might not have noticed before.

Battle of Thermopylae

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Thermopylae (/θərˈmɒpɨl/ thər-mop-i-leeGreekΜάχη τῶν ΘερμοπυλῶνMachē tōn Thermopylōn) was fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and thePersian Empire of Xerxes I over the course of three days, during the second Persian invasion of Greece. It took place simultaneously with the naval battle at Artemisium, in August or September 480 BC, at the narrow coastal pass of Thermopylae (‘The Hot Gates’). The Persian invasion was a delayed response to the defeat of the first Persian invasion of Greece, which had been ended by the Athenian victory at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC. Xerxes had amassed a huge army and navy, and set out to conquer all of Greece. The Athenian generalThemistocles had proposed that the allied Greeks block the advance of the Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae, and simultaneously block the Persian navy at the Straits of Artemisium.

The Battle of Thermopylae was a real event.  it is taught in Millitary History.

Military history is a humanities discipline within the scope of general historical recording of armed conflict in the history of humanity, and its impact on the societies, their cultures, economies and changing intra and international relationships.

Professional historians normally focus on military affairs that had a major impact on the societies involved as well as the aftermath of conflicts, while amateur historians and hobbyists often take a larger interest in the details of battles, equipment and uniforms in use.

The essential subjects of military history study are the causes of war, the social and cultural foundations, military doctrine on each side, the logistics, leadership, technology, strategy, and tactics used, and how these changed over time. On the other hand, Just War Theory explores the moral dimensions of warfare, and to better limit the destructive reality caused by war, seeks to establish a doctrine of military ethics.

Now it appears that the book of Judges was written before the battle of Thermopylae, if sources can be trusted.  So the Question arises was the book of Judges the inspiration for the battle of Thermopylae?

Judges 7:

The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’ Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home and hurry away from Mount Gilead.’” Then 22,000 of the people returned, and 10,000 remained.

And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Every one who laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself. Likewise, every one who kneels down to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.”So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the 300 men. And the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.


 

Midian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midian (Hebrewמִדְיָן‎), Madyan (Arabicمدين‎), or Madiam (GreekΜαδιάμ, Μαδιανίτης for a Midianite) is a geographical place and a people mentioned in the Bible and in the Qur’anWilliam G. Dever suggests it was located in the “northwest Arabian Peninsula, on the east shore of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea (the “Hejaz”). “[1]

Hadad the Edomite is specifically stated in 1 Kg 11:17-18 to have passed through Midian and Paran while fleeing from Edomto Egypt. Even so, some scholars have claimed Midian was not a geographical area but a league of tribes.[2]

The Midianites were the descendants of Midian, who was a son of Abraham through his wife Keturah: “. . . again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.”

What is the significance of the Number 300?  Well, stick with me for a moment and I will try to explain it to you.

Shin (letter)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shin (also spelled Šin (šīn) or Sheen) literally means “teeth”, “press”, and “sharp”; It is the twenty-first letter in manySemitic abjadsincluding Phoenician 𐤔Aramaic/Hebrew ש, and Arabic ش‎ (in abjadi order, 13th in modern order). Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant[ʃ] or [s].

Image

Significance[edit]

In gematria, Shin represents the number 300.

According to Judges 12:6, the tribe of Ephraim could not differentiate between Shin and Samekh; when the Gileadites were at war with the Ephraimites, they would ask suspected Ephraimites to say the word shibolet; an Ephraimite would say sibolet and thus be exposed. From this episode we get the English word Shibboleth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth

shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəlɛθ/[1] or /ˈʃɪbələθ/[2]) is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups. Within the mindset of the ingroup, a connotation or value judgment of correct/incorrect or superior/inferior can be ascribed to the two variants.

Origin[edit]

The term originates from the Hebrew word shibbólet (שִׁבֹּלֶת), which literally means the part of a plant containing grains, such as an ear of corn or a stalk of grain[3]or, in different contexts, “stream, torrent”.[4][5] The modern usage derives from an account in the Hebrew Bible, in which pronunciation of this word was used to distinguish Ephraimites, whose dialect lacked a /ʃ/ phoneme (as in shoe), from Gileadites whose dialect did include such a phoneme.

Recorded in the Book of Judges, chapter 12, after the inhabitants of Gilead inflicted a military defeat upon the tribe of Ephraim (around 1370–1070 BC), the surviving Ephraimites tried to cross the Jordan River back into their home territory and the Gileadites secured the river’s fords to stop them. In order to identify and kill these refugees, the Gileadites put each refugee to a simple test:

Gilead then cut Ephraim off from the fords of the Jordan, and whenever Ephraimite fugitives said, ‘Let me cross,’ the men of Gilead would ask, ‘Are you an Ephraimite?’ If he said, ‘No,’ they then said, ‘Very well, say “Shibboleth” (שבלת).’ If anyone said, “Sibboleth” (סבלת), because he could not pronounce it, then they would seize him and kill him by the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell on this occasion.

Judges 12:5–6, NJB

In Judaism[edit]

Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.[2]

 

The Shema Yisrael prayer also commands the Israelites to write God’s commandments on their hearts (Deut. 6:6); the shape of the letter Shin mimics the structure of the human heart: the lower, larger left ventricle (which supplies the full body) and the smaller right ventricle (which supplies the lungs) are positioned like the lines of the letter Shin.

I can’t find a good source on this but Shin also represents fire and spirit.

Islam will not change.

The following is a commentary on exerts from the Biography of Moses Maimonides by Abraham Joshua Heschel

“The Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, and Byzantines who took possession of the land never succeeded in getting the long established inhabitants, the crude Berber people, to mature sufficiently to share in their culture.  Only the militant missionaries of the Koran could accomplish this.  But even though the Berbers adopted a faith in Allah and in his prophet Mohammed, along with Arab mores and manners, they were never fully integrated into Arab cultural circles, nor did they ever fully merge into the vast Arabic world.”

Image

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abeed (Arabicعبد‎, plural Abeed عبيد or El Abeed العبيد) is a derogatory term in Arabic meaning “slave” and is usually applied as an insult to Black people to invokestereotypes. The name has been explained as an allusion to the submission that Muslims owe to Allah. Meyer dismisses this as “efforts by propagandists [to] explain the term away [that are] at the least, disingenuous”.[1]
 
Notice, that what is being said is that the people don’t recognize Sapiential Authority, the authority of reason, which is why others failed to incorporate them.  The reason that Islam succeeded is because of a willingness to apply physical force, which they respect, which is Coercive Authority.  And at the same time the people that converted them continued to look down on them as inferiors which apparently didn’t bother the Berbers enough to rebel against Muslim authority.

I am going to paraphrase the book a little now to speed things along:
 
Ibn Tumart, a religious fanatic from Morrocco, declares a jihad against the ruling class for being too liberal with the application of Islam blaming the rulers for the imperfections in the understandings of the people who were anthropomorphizing Allah by imagining him as human.  He believed that anybody that conceived of Allah as human deserved expulsion from Islam.  He blamed the rulers for secularization, for the public sale of wine and pigs in the streets where Mohammedans lived, (the same pigs that were recently killed off because of swine flu and come to find out they were eating the garbage that Muslims were too holy to pick up).  He accused the most righteous in Islam of being heretics, he even accused Christians of being polytheists because of the Trinity.  He would empty every bottle of wine and smash EVERY MUSICAL INSTRUMENT that he saw in the streets (because that is what a good Muslim he was).  
He really resonated with the Berbers who felt that “commitment to the cause of Allah was better than any consideration of human life and property.” “the command of the Mahdi is the commandment of Allah.”  They eventually took over Morrocco calling themselves ‘the Confessors of the Unity of Allah”.  They ruthlessly slaughtered anybody that resisted the “true Islamic Religion”. 
Jews were forced to embrace Islam or migrate or accept martyrdom.  Many succumbed to fear and pretended to be Muslims.”

Usage in Herodotus’ histories[edit]  wikipedia

In Book 4, Herodotus mentions for the first time the term earth and water in the answer of king Idanthyrsos of the Scythians to king Darius. In Book 5, it is reported that Darius sent heralds demanding earth and water from king Amyntas I of Macedon. In the 6th book, Darius sent heralds throughout Hellas bidding them demandearth and water for the king. In Book 7, he recounts that when the Persians sent envoys to the Spartans demanding the traditional symbol of surrender, an offering of soil and water, the Spartans threw them into a deep well, suggesting that upon their arrival at the bottom, they could “Dig it out for yourselves.”[1]

Interpretation[edit]

The demand for earth and water symbolized that those surrendering to Persians gave up all their rights over their land and every product of the land. Giving earth and water they recognized the Persian authority over everything; even their lives belonged to the king of Persians. Then negotiations would take place to specify the obligations and the benefits of the liegemen.

The phrase earth and water, even in modern Greek, symbolizes unconditional subordination to a conqueror.

BACK TO MY PARAPHRASING:

At first it was acceptable for Jews to be Pseudo-Muslims because in these countries privacy is highly respected, you can do whatever you want in your home, (with your 6 year old “wife”). But Jews were not allowed to pray in the streets or to even gather without attracting suspicion.  Apostacy is punishable by death in the Muslim community.  


COMMENTARY

Years ago, when Myspace had Groups and a philosophy forum, I wrote my fundamentalist drift theory which showed an emergent property in evangelizing and proselytizing ones beliefs.  I first observed this pattern in the Jehovah’s Witness religion in which I was raised, the bigger the religion got the more dumbed down it got.  As you include people of different ethnicities and cultures you also include their prejudices, sensitivities, and issues.  When you make them all equals and you keep lowering the bar you make desirable virtues, equal to superstitious vices.  What happens is that you have to remove everything that offends anybody.  You end up with a sterile environment in which nothing meaningful can be communicated.  I refer to this as the meritocracy of butthurt.  It creates a disparate impact in favor of the stupidest most easily offended, most violent people.  It is a false forced equality.  Wisdom and Ignorance are not equal are they?  

The thing is that in order to sell your message to boost your number in order to increase and expand your authority you need to make stupid people feel that your belief system has something to do with them, that they have some influence or control over it, that they have a voice.  In a rational relationship between a rational and irrational person, the irrational person benefits more than the rational person, and they for better or worse lead by virtue of being stupider, sensitive to their own issues and judgements, and feelings of correctness.  You have to be able to exert an influence on this element to ameliorate themselves and aspire to something that is indeed better than they are, just as children have to grow up and make themselves suitable for the world and society and not the reverse.  

I witnessed this pattern repeat, on Facebook, and then with the Dawkinites, the followers of Richard Dawkins, and then I noticed again as the same pattern repeated in the United States itself.  The positive freedom, Freedom of Speech slowly turned into Freedom from speech.  Female communication rituals were being forced on society.  

Here is the other thing, Israelites were a nomadic people for a long time, they got persecuted by almost every civilization.  The reason they started loaning money, even though usury is forbidden by Kosher law, is because they weren’t allowed to own land anywhere so that they could put down roots, so in order for them to have some manner of appreciating interest.  Israel needs to stay right where it is or else a greater evil and problem will ensue with history repeating yet again, worse than before.  Muslims need to deal with it.  Not only does Islam want and intend to spread itself all over the earth, since time immemorial they have wanted to completely eradicate the Jews.  Israel is not the cause of the problem.  The intolerance and violent stupidity of Islam is the problem.  There, I said it, I feel better.

The belief in Ayin Hara is not a superstition but is well founded on references from the earliest Jewish texts. Sarah “gives” Hagar an Ayin Hara, causing her to miscarry her first pregnancy. Yaakov warns his sons not to be seen together so as not to incur Ayin Hara. Another example is King Saul’s jealousy of the future King David who is credited with greater military prowess and “gives” him an Ayin Hara.

The Talmud quotes Rabbi Yochanan as saying “I am a descendant of Yosef over whom Ayin Harahad no control.” The Talmud also says that fish represent a form of life that is free of the influence of Ayin Hara. According to one opinion of the Talmud, a first-born daughter prevents Ayin Harafrom affecting the family.

Othello

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on. That cuckold lives in bliss,
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger:
But O, what damnèd minutes tells he o’er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves!

Envy[edit]

Main article: Envy

Like greed and lust, Envy (Latin, invidia) is characterized by an insatiable desire. Envy is similar to jealousy in that they both feel discontent towards someone’s traits, status, abilities, or rewards. The difference is the envious also desire the entity and covet it.

Envy can be directly related to the Ten Commandments, specifically, “Neither shall you desire… anything that belongs to your neighbour.”

PLATO: THE PHAEDO

“For just consider, if you transgress and err in this sort of way, what good will you do, either to yourself or to your friends? That your friends will be driven into exile and deprived of citizenship, or will lose their property, is tolerably certain; and you yourself, if you fly to one of the neighboring cities, as, for example, Thebes or Megara, both of which are well-governed cities, will come to them as an enemy, Socrates, and their government will be against you, and all patriotic citizens will cast an evil eye upon you as a subverter of the laws, and you will confirm in the minds of the judges the justice of their own condemnation of you. For he who is a corrupter of the laws is more than likely to be corrupter of the young and foolish portion of mankind. Will you then flee from well-ordered cities and virtuous men? and is existence worth having on these terms? Or will you go to them without shame, and talk to them, Socrates? And what will you say to them? What you say here about virtue and justice and institutions and laws being the best things among men?
