Hillary Clinton, Boko Haram, & ISIS.

bring-back-our-girls-michelle-obama

Hillary called the Boko Haram kidnapping “abominable – it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria.” And earlier, she Tweeted: “Access to education is a basic right & an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls. We must stand up to terrorism. #BringBackOurGirls.” May 9, 2014,

So why didn’t we categorize Boko Haram as a Terrorist organization?  Because that would mean cutting off money to states that protect and harbor Terrorists and because Gilbert Chagoury contributed Millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Exactly how many Millions of dollars is not known specifically but thanks to WikiLeaks we know that it is up to and including $5,000,000.  Now Boko Haram flies the Black Flag of ISIS.  Isn’t it curious that the Terrorist organization that the Obama/Clinton Regime created by making a power vacuum and running guns out of Benghazi and into Syria to fight their proxy war with Assad has now also been joined by Boko Haram in order to make a super-Caliphate?

It’s almost as though Nigeria is using Boko Haram as a KKK like Military in order to oppress Christianity in Africa so that Africans can be Terrorized into agreeing with a singular authority.  Also Boko Haram means (Western Knowledge is Forbidden) and Islam doesn’t believe that women should be educated.

What do Muslim Schools Teach?

There is only one subject of study in Islam, and that is Sharia Law.  “Taliban” literally means “the Students” and Boko Haram means “Western knowledge forbidden”.  Muslims insist that they are the children of Adam, they insist they are a Judeo-Christian Religion, but they have the conceit that they are better than everybody else because they are untainted by original sin.

 

Islam is not a Religion it is an Invasive War Cult.

untitled

In this article I intend to prove to the reader that Islam should not be allowed to categorize itself as a religion in the Western World.  Eventually, we will be circulating a petition from Change.org where people can vote that hope.  The evidence that I lay down in this article will be based on recent events, recurring patterns throughout history, philosophical, and rhetorical tautologies and icons within the “Religion” itself.  

TELEOLOGICAL ERROR

When a person sees to people arguing for fighting back and forth, they assume the correctness of their own perspective, from that perspective both parties are acting irrationally and part of the problem, one assumes that both parties are equally responsible for the conflict, this decision making process precludes the origin of the conflict, and ignores the perspective of the person who knows how the conflict started and who is setting things right.  To cause an arbitrary ceasefire in the conflict rewards the malicious party that attacked first and since we know psychopaths can’t reform and they will strike again the person acting as a moral authority and bringing a false peace is now also a potential target of the initial attacker, also having caused a disparate impact in favor of the attacker and rewarding their strategic behavior by making it worthwhile for them.

DEVOLVING RELIGION

The bible is a mythological allegory, a mythological history based on true events but encoded so that other people reading it wouldn’t know how to decipher it correctly and understand it, and in not being able to do that they couldn’t get offended by it and punish the possessors of it.  I am not making this up, one of my pen names is Rabbi Ba’al Shiva, under that alias I deconstruct bible  myths with PaRDeS, Jewish exegesis.  The bible was written by the Jews, not by the Christians, and as such they are more of an authority on the meaning of the scripture, and they do not interpret the scripture literally.

The first scriptures in the bible were written by Persian Jews, trying to break away from the evil religions they saw in Persia, the sacrificing of babies to Moloch as a sacrament and as a post natal form of abortion.  The story of Abraham and Isaac was an allegory showing that the Jewish god no longer approved of human sacrifice, this was a revolution in religion and their would be more to come.  At this time the Jewish people were trying to break away as an identity from the Persian mentality.  This would be a long, concerted, coordinated effort as we will see.

The Practices of war in the bible were necessary not because the Jewish god invented them but because the forces they were fighting used them.  When you are fighting a force of people that is arrogant, superior, and ruthless, and uses technique at its disposal to completely destroy its enemy you have to use tactics that can compete and succeed, still in Jewish law we see as much compassion being used as it is possible to use under the circumstances.  Raping women and taking wives were part of the spoils of war back in those days.  To quote Richard Dawkins:  “I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism…”

If you examine closely the story of Moses, what you see is a people once again trying to separate their identity from that of the Persian mentality.  Remember the Persian’s were constantly trying to expand their vast empire.  By this time they had expanded their authority yet again into the realm in which the Jews had attained some amount of success Egypt.

p28

The story of the Exodus from Egypt corresponds, interestingly enough, with the creation of the Chassidim and the kosher diet.  The metaphorical wandering for 40 years in the wilderness was a metaphor for purging themselves from the Mizraim, the people that were more interested in the “nations” than in the Jewish identity, to preserve their identity as separate from this once more expanding empire.

It wasn’t bad enough that the Jewish people kept on being conquered by the Persians every time they were conquered by the Persians they were dragged back to Persian and “re-educated” or brainwashed back into the Persian mentality.  After the collapse of the Temple of Solomon, once again the Jews were dragged back to Persia and re-indoctrinated once again.

JESUS EVOLVES JUDAISM

Matthew 10:15 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans…. 

Samaritans say that their worship is the true religion of the ancient Israelites prior to theBabylonian Exile, preserved by those who remained in the Land of Israel, as opposed to Judaism, which they say is a related but altered and amended religion, brought back by those returning from the Babylonian exile.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans

ENTER MOHAMMED THE VIOLENT, ILLITERATE, CHILD RAPIST

In Salman Rushdie’s book, the Satanic verses, he frames Mohammed as a religious zealot who considers himself as carrying on the Guru lineage of Jesus Christ, but as he goes from aghora to aghora debating with the philosophers in the market places he is routinely humiliated and falsified, as he should be.  What Mohammed did is he undid all of the evolution that religion had succeeded in, taking it back to the worst of times, before Jesus, before Moses, and before even Abraham.

Due to the rhetorical tautologies in the Unholy Quran it predisposes itself to the most violent and stupid interpretation.

According to AFP, the ISIS leader told worshippers at the mosque: “I am the wali (leader) who presides over you, though I am not the best of you, so if you see that I am right, assist me.

“If you see that I am wrong, advise me and put me on the right track, and obey me as long as I obey God in you.”

Muslims are the fastest growing population of the stupidest and most violent people on earth.  Their very life style is based on spreading Islam all over the face of the earth and eradicating any person that will not submit to Allah under threat of violence.  They have re-instituted a priest class which has not been seen for thousands of years.  Which is to say, Saudi Arabia, translates fewer books into Arabic than anybody else IN THE WORLD including Greece which translates more books than they do and being in control of much fewere people.  Not only that the majority of Muslims are illiterate which means their priest class tells them what to think, what to feel, and what to do.  In their religion they are allowed to rape women and then stone those women for being prostitutes and women of ill repute especially if those women are foreign.  Although, they have at times raped young Muslim women and them told them they can be stoned to death or martyr themselves by blowing up infidels and thereby have their honor restored.  Some stupid western women say, “but not all Muslims are bad, I have had sex with a Muslim man.”  Well guess what, there is no law in Islam about how many sharmouta (whores) a man can sleep with, but, just see what happens when a Western non-Muslim man has sex with a woman of Muslim descent.

RHETORICAL TAUTOLOGIES IN ISLAM

Islam is a religion that is spread by violence, anybody who will not convert is an infidel and that is punishable by death.

Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…

but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.  But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” 

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.

Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

ISLAM THE WAR CULT

Sharia law is essentially martial law applied to a civilian population, that is why they don’t distinguish between military or civilian targets.  Sharia is also the purest form of Islam.   Islam is in a constant state of Jihad holy war intent on spreading Islam, all Muslims are combatants.  Muslims are taught to always be spreading and furthering Islam’s message by any and all means.  Taqu

iyya is the act of spreading or protecting Islam by lying or concealing the truth.  There is another term, which I can’t remember, that essentially means retreat, but what it actually means is resting to gain strength for more jihad later.  Also, Islam has no problem with genocide and torture.

Since, Islam is against Western society and America it is only fair that Islam not be granted equality to other religions in the west.  Islam is not tolerant of other cultures or religions, they persecute every religion that is not Muslim, Hindus, B’hai, Yazidis, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, all of them, they are even in a state of perpetual civil war with themselves.

Ever since the violent revolution inside Islam orchestrated by Ibn Tumart in which they killed off all of the intelligent people and the artists, Islam has never been the same.  You can read the article I wrote here.  (https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2014/06/08/islam-will-not-change/)  What is happening now is the re-Conquest of the Muslim world by the stupidest and most violent Muslims.  Muslims are contemptuous of other peoples art, which is forbidden in their world because images of humans or animals or anything but artistically rendered letters is an act of idolatry.  That is why they blew up the Buddhas that were carved out of the mountains.

Taller_Buddha_of_Bamiyan_before_and_after_destruction

Well, I can’t make my position any clearer than that.  Treating another group of people as they treat you is not prejudice, it is justice, turnabout is fair play.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_ad_bellum#Just_cause.2F_Right_intention)

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

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

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.  
Image
 
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.
