Old Testament stories? Not much of humanism

Note: A re-edit of 2009 post

The Old Testament was written in the last century before Christ in Hellenistic Alexandria (Egypt)  by a group of Jews who needed to have a history of their own.

Judaism, Islam, Medieval Catholic of Rome, and the USA affiliates religious sects based on the Old Testament are essentially “theo-centrist”: They believe that God is the real King in this world and that the rights of human come in second.

Mankind has to pay the price for all calamities to satisfying a mythical God who is tailor-made to the interest of the religious hierarchies.

The Roman and Greek (Hellenistic) cultures regarded the Jewish religion at the antipodes of humanism, the negation of philo-thropia.

Actually, cultures that adored idols barely persecuted other religions on the ground that corresponding idols (for fertility, agriculture, war…) were available anywhere they ventured overseas. The functions of the idols were the same anywhere they traveled.

The further apartheid Israel slips into theocracy  the stronger Islam fundamentalists acquire relevance in Islamic World.

The two religions are the same in nature of God-center and it is the corresponding “unique God” fighting for the unique position. T

he people take backstage in that mythical fight.  The people are suffering mindless terrorism and counter-terrorism on both sides, humiliation, apartheid behaviors, and blood is shed in the name of the powerful unique God.

Judaism and Islam are alienating their devoted members; it is as if the religious leaning individual has either to think “I am not what I am”, and then for convenience sake, he finds a verse “demonstrating” “I am what I am Not“.  Their God does not want that an individual believes “I am what I am”.

The God of papal Rome split the world in the 16th century in two:

The world East of Rome belonged to colonial Portugal and the western part to colonial Spain.

The God of the fleeing tribes from Egypt under command of Moses allocated fertile lands to them in Canaan (This is a fictitious story that never took place).  By the by, the map planned by Jehovah extended to Samaria and Syria.

Created Israel by a single vote majority in the UN in 1948, gave the Jews lands of Palestinians.

The Palestinian cause of returning  to their lands, establishing a recognized independent State by the UN, and the return of Palestinian refugees in camps in Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria requires a powerful impartial mediator (go-between) that can enforce and supervise the execution of the treaties.  So far, this mediator is not available since the successive US governments refused to consider the Palestinians as an entity.

The USA is playing the role of “embedded journalist” in tank convoys with the marching Israeli army.

The USA can but refuses to take on that dangerous initiative.  The US institutions made sure that a Bible rest on bed tables in each hotel room for night reading.  

After the 1967 preemptive war and Israel conquering more lands that it could shew on, the successive US Administrations held the entire US citizens hostages to the new conservative religious ideology;.

The US citizen has now to believe that the purpose of the US is to convert the Jews into so sort of Christianism in order to quicken the arrival of the second Messiah.

The mythical “pilgrims” story who landed by mistake on Cape Code and were fed for two years by the Indians took on another dimension.

The US wants its citizens to believe that the pilgrims were fleeing England religious persecutions on the ground that they held the Old Testament as a divine Book and its laws to be followed exactly by the letter.

Thus, the US wants to spread this myth that it would be committing parricide if it exerted undue pressures on Israel.

Actually, half the Congress members do not even read the laws that APAC submit to them to vote on; it is not even a matter of catering to their Zionist financial contributors.

Germany, France, and Italy are still playing the role of “afflicted penitents” even after 70 years of the “yellow patch” discriminating against the Jews.

France, not only refuses to react on the countless humiliations suffered by its diplomats and French citizens in Israel, but insists on heaping extraordinary favors in expression of the primacy of its Jewish minority:  The president of “The Republic”, the Prime Minister, the ministers and most of the deputies of the Parliament have to assist to Jewish religious ceremony.

France was the prime State to have supported unconditionally Israel since its creation, and the aid increased during de Gaulle: the socialist government delivered the nuclear power plant and De Gaulle the most sophisticated fighter jets Mirages.

Germany is still building nuclear submarines, free of charge for Israel.  Berlusconi of Italy wishes he can be a Prime Minister in Israel to exercise his fascist ideology with total impunity.

Germany, France, and Italy have the job to frequently re-financing the infrastructures that Israel destroys in the West Bank and Gaza.

England, Spain, Finland, Denmark, Norway would not turn the left cheek to the humiliations of Israel or hide the atrocities committed by Israel against human rights and dignity.  That is why, Israel dare not humiliate the citizens and diplomats of those States.

So far, Israel felt free, untouched, and immune to baffle all UN charters, conventions, and treaties.

When George Mitchell (US mediator in the Palestinian cause) submitted the report of the Commission of Investigation in 2001 then, Ariel Sharon defied the World community stating: “Nobody has the right to bring Israel before any international court of justice.

It is a virus: You scratch one spot and it spreads; (Jan. 29, 2010)

It is a virus; a sort of mushroom that spreads over your skin and inflicts crazy itching.

You start scratching one spot and you end up lapidating your entire body.  It has affected me for over a month.

I finally saw a physician, not a skin specialist, in the town dispensary and she told me that she witnesses many such cases lately.

The virus is in the air and that is how you are contaminated; many victims experienced lousy moments for many weeks.

The physician prescribed a single pill (costing $8) with effects that last for a week. Got to take another pill for a second week; that should take care of the mushroom.

The physician said that without the pill the itching takes 6 weeks to subside.

In my case and with the pill I should be okay within days: I was healed the next day.

I decided for the second pill to make sure that the mushroom is dead once and for all.  I am not sure: three weeks later and I am itching; not necessarily of mushroom; but what do I know?

Itching is not the main topic of this article: it just gave me a perfect analogy.  The virus is Israel.

If you say Israel is an apartheid State because it subjugates the Palestinian people to a different law of the land than the one applied on the Jew,s then Israel is upset.

If you say Israel is a theocratic State because it extends citizenship to any Jew who sets foot in Israel then Israel is angry.

Why, all of the over 600 religious laws that govern daily life, as applied by the Pharisee during Jesus time, are still valid and harshly controlled.

The secular Jews agree that Israel is back to the Dark Age, but how to convince the US neo-conservative “Christians” that this is so?

If you say that Israel is comfortable with ghetto-like environment because it cordonned off all its frontiers by walls (frontiers that are not yet delimited in its Constitution) then Israel is appalled

If you say Israel is a Sparta State because it believes in military resolution for any contention with any neighboring State then Israel is incensed. Why?

Israel is worse than Sparta: after 3 years of forced military service the citizen has to submit to a month per year in “the reserves” service.

If you say Israel has been committing crimes against humanity since before its inception in 1948, and Gaza is the latest in evidence, then Israel rejects Goldstone’s report in all its sections.

If you say Israel has a peculiar kind of “democracy” that was called “apartheid democracy” in South Africa where laws are selectively and not equitably applied on all citizens; or if you say that the kind of democracy applied in Israel is barely a developed version of City-States democracies of Antiquity such as applied in Athens, Tyr, or Sidon then Israel feels obfuscated.

I you say Israel refuses to grow up and abide by its responsibility as a member of the United Nations and respect UN decisions then Israel is furious: Israel constantly expects the US to cover up illegal activities with the veto power.

If you say the Arab States want peace for returning all the conquered lands in 1967 as proclaimed in 2002 Arab Summit in Beirut then Israel feels resentful and laughs it off.

If you say that Israel is a racist State because the UN declared “Zionism a form of racism” then Israel is up in arms to drop this statement.  Can you believe it?

Israel is investing money to demonstrate that Indians living in the region of Malihabad, (near Lucknow in the Uttar Pradesh), and known as Pathans Afridis are Jews from the tribe of Ephraim that lived in northern Galilee during Jesus time.

The Indian Shahnaz Ali was hired by Israel Institute of Technology to test the DNA of this “tribe” and hopefully extrapolate the results to include the Pashtoun tribes on the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Is that a form of racism? Since when any religion was based on race?

I did a rough estimate: I figured out that the Phoenicians are over one billion, give or take one standard deviation, and are spread over the five continents!

If you say that Israel is “the vastest psychiatric ward in the world with no treating personnel” then Israel is ready to lambaste the Israeli author as a schizophrenic, leftist, and probably “anti-Semitic” mole.

If you say that Israel is indeed a very, very peace loving State then Israel is infuriated because you are mocking it.  It is a virus.

No matter what you say is non receivable.

Best attitude is to censure your opinions and refrain from mentioning Israel, Jews, Judaism, Hebrew, or the Diaspora.

One term is admissible: Jews were gazed by Nazism and the number better be exact: 6 millions no less and not one over that scientifically reached number.

Repeat: Jews were gazed and not shot, poisoned, killed, trampled, or exterminated in any other form of “final solutions”.

Repeat: Exactly 6 millions or the holocaust literature would have to be republished; any number over 6 millions and Germany would be infuriated and Merkel would have to cancel the seventh nuclear submarines, built for free for the State of Israel, at Germans’ tax payer expenses; and for what use are these nuclear submarines put in service?  Maybe to support NATO policies?

It is a virus: mushroom or no mushroom you feel itching like crazy and Barack Obama and George Mitchell first of all.

For when is Barak Obama to settle on a clear perspective? (September 23, 2009)

 

            So far the Obama Administration is sending the strong signal that it is drifting with no mooring programs or plans for the mid-term perspective. The Democratic Party has won the election but it has been continuing and executing the neo-conservative Republican Party programs and plans decided upon before the election. 

            The main promise of health care reform is at a standoff and blocked. The only default decision was to scrap the installation of ballistic missiles along the borders with Russia for lack of funding. A few restrictive laws on banking were added with a clause not to be enforced for at least two years for lack of manpower and adequate budget. Everything else is going as if nothing happened since the financial crash; as if no new election was done. The decision to close Guantanamo prison was taken in the previous administration; so was the exit plan for the retreat of the troops from Iraq.

            The short-term deal with China is that everything is to resume as before for three years until both nations clean houses. Military activities have been resuming in Afghanistan and Pakistan with increased numbers of troops for a lost cause on the field. George Mitchell has been dispatched to the Near East to arrange the creation of a Palestinian State; so far, it seems that Mitchell peregrinations are meant to last two years because the Obama Administration is still trying to untangle the purposes of the Greater Middle East Plan that did not exist in the first place: there was no plan; period. Iraq is as bad as in the worst years and its President Maliki wants also to anger Syria and stop normal diplomatic arrangements.

            After 9/11, 2001, the “prestige” of the USA was attacked. The Bush Junior Administration of neo-conservative was not prepared for this kind of cataclysm; it was taking a long vacation from urgent world environmental degradation decisions. The American people demanded swift responses commensurate to the US baffled image of the only remaining superpower. The government had no ready alternatives but to dig up war plans in their last phases of simulations; it selected the war plans targeting the Middle East simply because Bush hastily blamed Islam for the attack. The public was ready to accept any enemy target; if Islam is the terrorist culprit then lets annihilate Al Qaeda promptly and not worry about collateral casualties.

            Invading poor and tribal Afghanistan had nothing of a Hollywood action movie; the public wanted a war with a tad bit of complexity and difficulty that correspond to the “power” of the USA. Invading Iraq was perfect in feasibility, natural resources, and a hated dictator that can arrange the desires of the American public. Pre-emptive war it was; the hell with the United Nations resolutions. Did we hear that most of Europe is against this transgression?  Then Europe is an old fart.

            As so many institutions and private intellectuals analyzed the goal of this pre-emptive war so did I.  To my amazement I figured out that there was no plan at all. The Bush Administration went to war and then waited for the analyses to converge. From the many titles they adored “The Greater Middle East Plan”. They just relied on this catchy title and filed the void with general abstract notions of democracy, liberty, free trade, and war against the satanic terrorists.  Ariel Sharon wanted his own wars against terrorism then no problems; Sharon and his successors got all the green lights they wanted and promptly; they built the Wall of Shame; they destroyed entire Palestinian refugee camps; they erased Gaza from the map; they jailed 12,000 civilian Palestinians with no legal cases or due procedures, and they invaded Lebanon in July 2006.  Israel asked for a cease fire after the third day but Bush wanted this war to resume for another 30 days. Lady Condo landed in Lebanon and farted “The Greater Middle East is now in a pregnancy period; the Lebanese have to suffer for the greater world benefit”.

            After many years of wars and conflicts in the Middle East the White House thought that he got down a coherent plan of why this war was pre-empted.  Everything was micromanaged for “coherence” sake and not for rational purposes. Many lucky activities that had god potentials were sacrificed for “coherence” image of a plan that never existed in the first place.

            The devastating hurricane lasted 7 years with a new term extended to the president who initiated it and had no idea why he did it and what to do next. The American public woke up at a strange scene of chaos and disintegration. The military lost moral and was committing suicide at an accelerate rate, the economy was not productive, the financial crash demolished the remnant ideology of liberal capitalism, employment rates were skyrocketing, and wars were still going on strong in many fields of operations. The Republican Party had nothing to offer in its campaign but empty patriotic slogans that made every citizen puke.

            There was a white ghost in the White House; it was replaced by a colored one. While canvassing the world with rhetoric that pleases everyone Obama is still in the stage of comprehending the problems he inherited. Meanwhile, the world community is groveling in the delusion that the US can participate in the resolution of world problems. The best for Europe, China, and Russia is to start leading the world and let the US rest and keep away from world problems or any kinds of interventions.  The US of both parties can no longer suffer to handle even its own mess. The enlightenment has fled the USA and its decision process needs to navigate the endless labyrinth of bureaucratic caves and tunnels.

            We have got no time to put our good eggs for hatching with a foolish headless hen.
