Machiavelli writes, in his Discourses: “If one wishes a religion or a republic to live long, one must bring it back frequently to its beginning.”
America strays from its beginning
For in their beginnings, comments Leo Strauss, religions and republics must have had some virtue or strength, else they would not have gained their initial reputation and would not have grown. “Machiavelli proves his thesis regarding republics, by the example of Rome’s regaining new life and new virtue after her defeat by the Gauls.” Rome then renewed its old orders, especially those of religion, through the neglect of which she had suffered disaster and declined.
Therein we see why the United States is declining. The Americans have forsaken the religion that inspired the beginning of their Republic. I am alluding to the theology and ethics embodied in the American Declaration of Independence. The Declaration, which was included in eight of the original thirteen states of the Federal Union, expresses the underlying political philosophy of the American Constitution. Abraham Lincoln called the Declaration “our ancient faith.” Nevertheless, Barack Obama, upon becoming President, boasted that he would provide a new Declaration of Independence, hence a new beginning.
Evident here is the monumental arrogance of America’s first black president, an arrogance rooted in abysmal ignorance. This arrogance of ignorance has long been evident among Israel’s political and judicial elites. These secular elites stumble in the darkness of a state whose own so-called Declaration of Independence – its first sentence – deliberately ignores, nay, tacitly denies, the Covenant of Mount Sinai by asserting that the Jews became a people, not in Sinai, but in the land of Canaan!
Age of Reason leads to unreason
Blinded by the skepticism misleadingly called the “Enlightenment” or the “Age of Reason,” these secular elites have been pursuing the irrational policy of “territory for peace” with Arabs who never experienced the Enlightenment, and whose religion exalts jihad – war!
The Age of Reason has thus led in Israel – and not only in Israel – to an Age of Unreason, not to say Stupidity. Israel’s Illuminati believe they can make Israel’s backward, barbaric, and jihadic enemies modern, civilized, and peaceful by making them prosperous! What a travesty of Reason!
Let me remind you of the illustrious Jewish philosopher Hermann Cohen, who called Judaism the “religion of reason.” Cohen traced the religion of reason to Moses, mankind’s greatest law-giver. Alas, Moses has been supplanted in Israel by Judge Aharon Barak, the former president of Israel’s Supreme Court, who laid down the dictum “everything is justiciable,” including, therefore, the laws of Moses.
Barak and his anti-Jewish minions – let us not mince words – Barak and his ultra-secular Illuminati want to make Israel another dismal multicultural “state of its citizens,” a state lacking any distinctive national identity, which can only mean they want to nullify Israel as a Jewish state just as leftists in Sweden nullified Sweden as a Swedish state! One does not need former Iranian despot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel off the map!
Erasing the beginning of Israel
One way of erasing Israel as a Jewish state is by erasing the historical or collective memory of the Jewish people. This lobotomy can be done by establishing an Arab state in Judea and Samaria – the names of two places sanctified by the Prophets of Israel.
This is why the Camp David Accords refer to Judea and Samaria as the “West Bank.” Those two words of the Camp David Accords signify the colossal shortsightedness of the otherwise astute Menachem Begin! Two words in a document – not “American pressure” – inaugurated a mental revolution among the people of Israel.
Those two words in a document propelled this people on a road that may deprive them of their heartland and national identity. Even though that road is already soaked with Jewish blood, we still have spiritually vacuous and intellectually shallow prime ministers unwittingly serving as the spearhead of Islamic imperialism! Nothing is further from the minds of these prime ministers than to restore the virtue and strength of Israel’s beginning.
Then let us therefore put our minds to work and promote the creation of a government based on principles derived from the Torah, a government whose elected and appointed ministers love and honor the Jewish people and who want to renew the virtue and strength of their ancient heritage. Such a government that would empower the Jewish people and base its policies on their abiding convictions. I mean, above all, a government that wants to vivify the world-historical aspirations of the Jewish People, the one and only God-bearing nation.☼
