The God issue: coming soon



Obama interferes in Israeli elections. Does he also use taxpayer money to pay for it?

The resolution of the God issue, which involves the sanctification of God’s Name, should be the paramount purpose of the State of Israel. That and that alone is the only logical purpose of a nation-state whose name is Yisrael, a nation whose way of life is guided the teachings and laws of the Torah, which is not a theocracy, a regime ruled by a priestly class, but a Republic in which the sovereign power resides in the people under God.

Of course, this idea clashes with normless Democracy, which was despised by philosophers until the Enlightenment – say Hobbes and Locke, Hume and Rousseau – who were philosophical skeptics and atheists. Their bête noir was the “Old Testament,” on which Christianity and the power of the Church stood or fell. The philosophers won the battle. Thanks to those philosophers, the scientific revolution initiated by Galileo and Newton, and culminating in the nineteenth century, engendered the secularism that has since dominated every level of education in the democratic world, which today finds itself in utter disarray.

Theodor Herzl divorces God from Israel

Theodor Herzl divorced God from his Jewish State. The consequences of that mistake play out today.

It was in nineteenth-century Europe that secular Zionism was born and articulated in Theodor Herzl’s The Jewish State. This politically inspiring but intellectually shallow book became the bible of modern Israel.

The most significant aspect of the book is its tacit adoption of the antinomianism of Christianity: “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” This intellectually modest book reduced the profound multi-disciplinary wisdom and laws of the Torah – which has no equal in the Gentile world – to a religion. Jews were offered a secular ideology that separated the Torah from an enormous body of knowledge, including biology, sociology, statecraft, and public policy. Herzl had aped the famous Italian nationalist Garibaldi (1861-1882).

Unfortunately, Herzl had no Madison or Hamilton to enlighten him about statecraft. He had no professional knowledge of how to design political institutions that can reconcile permanence and change (which happens to be the genius of the American Constitution, and which even today, can be discerned in the slogans of some conservative American politicians).

All honor to Herzl, for his great courage and dedication. But the antinomianism of his little book is at war with the sanctification of God’s Name, and so it will remain as long as Israel is ruled by secularists. The “demotion” of God by Israeli prime ministers is ironic, since it conceptually justifies the refusal of the Palestinian Authority to recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jews!

A secular Israel against devout Muslims

However, that refusal is providential. God is using Muslims to cast contempt on Israel’s Government, its paucity of Jewish ideas and integrity, so obvious in the drivel of Israeli prime ministers. Their lack of intellectual integrity is most evident in their psychobabble about “peace” with Jew-hating Muslims. These Muslims are steeped in paganism. Their sexuality extends to necrophilia; and their use of children as human shields as sacrifices to Allah, is reminiscent of the Canaanite sacrifices of children to Baal.

Israeli prime ministers are not stupid. However, their sincere desire for peace has become irrational, a fixation. It has convoluted their minds and emasculated them. By rubbing elbows with Muslims in the “peace process” they’ve been infected by the Muslim’s genius for indirection.

Look around the bloody Middle East. You have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to be unaware that peace between Jews and the disciples of Mohammad is impossible. Only those given to arrant utopianism, or megalomania, believe that they can talk with Muslims and reverse of Islam’s 1400-year history of politicide and genocide.

It’s pertinent to point out that Islam’s deity, Allah, sanctifies the deceit and dissembling. Muslims call this taqiyya. This theologically sanctified mendacity of Islam stands in striking contrast to the way of life sanctified by the God of Israel, one of whose Names is Truth.

Precisely because Israeli prime ministers have not sanctified the God of Truth, Israel is constantly being degraded by the liars of Islam. Enough to mention the “Palestinian people,” whose very name is a lie, since it’s nothing more than a consortium of diverse terrorist groups hailing from various parts of the Middle East and North Africa.

Their cockamamie leader, Mahmoud Abbas, is of course a disciple of Muhammad. Muhammad’s name gives the Palestinian Authority a specious authenticity, to the extent that various Israeli and America decision makers parade the PA as a “peace partner.”

In view of so many years of this gibberish about Abbas and his terrorist- addicted Palestinian Authority, is it any wonder that U.S. President Barack Obama – himself a cockamamie Muslim – utters gibberish about his recent nuclear agreement with Iran as the only way to avoid war, as if Iran’s Mullocracy had never said “Death to America” and Death to Israel”?

God will not be mocked

Viewed in the light of these maledictions, and taking into account the emergence of a nuclear Iran in the oil-rich Middle East on the one hand, and the latter’s economic and strategic significance vis-à-vis Russia on the other, I dare say that the present eclipse of God will make the two world wars of the twentieth century appear as brawls by comparison.

Given Khomeini’s 1979 revolution in Iran on the one hand, and Iran’s accessibility to nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction on the other, any serious understanding of what the Khomeini revolution signifies would prompt astute observers of Khomeini’s disciples in Iran as clear and dangerous threat to Western Civilization. The magnitude of this threat arises from the God issue, the only serious issue of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The God issue was not clearly manifested in the First World War. It was only dimly manifested in Second World War, despite the Nazi genocide against the Jews, the God-bearing people of Israel, the true God-bearers of monotheism.

The resolution of the God issue is not far away.◙☼

“Antinomianism.” There’s a word I have to add to my personal lexicon. It condenses a large, complex concept into one short word.

It means against or flat-out replacing the law.
