|The UN and President Obama, have timed their Islamic Jew Hating attack on Israeli legitimacy to coincide with Hanukkah just as all organized Islamic attacks are timed, to overturn victories of "the enemy". For good measure they backhand Christianity for Christmas too.|
"Antiochus VII, ruler of the Hellenistic Seleucid Empire, demanded that Simon, who led the Maccabees in their struggle for religious freedom, return to him the "illegally occupied" cities of Jaffa, Gezer and the coastal towns, which had previously been controlled by the Syrian-Greeks. Simon defiantly responded (Maccabees 1 Chapter 15): "We have not taken strange lands, nor are we ruling over foreign territory. We have returned to our ancestral inheritance, from which we had been unjustly expelled by our enemies. And now that we have been blessed with the opportunity, we will hold onto our ancestral land."
Hannukah Menorah candle lighting celebrates the victory of the light of spirituality over the darkness of the world. After the sacking and despoiling of the Israelite Temple, the one days amount of oil left untouched, by a miracle and as a symbol, burned for Eight days.
The darkness of the world in those days were the Syrian-Greeks. Today it is the Islamic regimes and the ideology of German Karl Marx, whose family converted from Judaism. Marx believed that anyone engaging in Capitalism should be considered Jewish, hence the need for Socialism and Communism.
Until Pope John Paul II, the first Polish Pope and Vatican II, which officially dispelled the lie, a Jew was hated and scorned and considered an abject lesson to Christians of a people that abandoned God and are eternally damned to be punished in this life and the next. This is still the reason behind the un-reason of hating Capitalism as inherently evil.
Anti-Semitism is based on the Jealousy of both the Roman Catholic (Not Christian) Church and the Islamic religion. They could only gain legitimacy by demeaning the Israelite Religion (even though both are based on it). Otherwise people were converting to Judaism for Spiritual meaning. To get converts to join the Church or the Muslim Uma, they had to create first the Dirty Religion of the Israelites and then the "Dirty Jew" who engaged in loans with interest which the Church forbade.
Islam is Schizophrenic in both it's hatred for the Israeli people, according to the Hadith and tolerance and grudging respect for Jews as People of the book according to the Koran. That is because Islam is based on the schizophrenia of the contradicting stories about Mohammed contained in the Hadith not the Koran. The Koran, the actual words of Mohammed, is the opnluy source quoted to fool the world into thinking Islam is a religion of Peace. The Judaism, embedded in Islam is the Religion of peace. The Hadith, which controls Islam, is a book of unending war on the world. In fact, in Arabic, the non-Muslim world is called Harb which means war and conflict.
Islam will never change because instead of resolving the conflicting stories of the Hadith, they instead banned Logic and questioning. Submit and obey. Keep your yap shut and your scimitar sharp.
