We all know the story of the Trojan Horse, when the Greeks offered a hollowed-out giant statue of a horse to the Trojans as a “gift” during their war.
As the story goes, the Trojans, whose city was under siege by the Greeks, accepted the horse as a sign that the Greeks were weakening, when in fact, the hollowed-out horse was filled with Greek soldiers, whose mission it was to open the city’s gates while the city of Troy slept.
The rest is history.
BEWARE OF OBAMA BEARING GIFTS:
Let’s fast-forward to the present, where the Americans are offering Israel some of the most prized military equipment on the planet, the likes of which include the Boeing V-22 Osprey War Plane, which takes off and lands like a helicopter, but flies like a regular two prop-engine plane, which is not available at any price to any other country other than Israel.
But . . . as great as the Osprey is, it is NOT a war-changer let alone a war winner.
Last week, along with the Greek, Italian and Israeli air forces, America participated in a major aerial war game over the skies of Israel.
And now, it has all of a sudden been announced that America will participate in what is being billed as an extremely significant ON-THE-GROUND WAR GAME in Israel, with a combined force of American and Israeli soldiers.
This all sounds great, but, if the USA is so hell-bent to back-up Israel, why is the White House (Obama) BLOCKING the sale of BUNKER-BUSTING Bombs to Israel, that would make a real difference in Israel’s NEED to take out Iran’s nuclear program?
I think this it is an absolutely great strategy on behalf of Obama . . . to show the entire world, but mostly the Israeli population, the American Evangelical and Jewish populations that America is absolutely ON-SIDE with Israel.
BUT . . . NOT ONLY DON’T I BELIEVE THIS DECEIT, I fully suspect that it is being done to keep Israel and Israeli supporters believing that America has Israel’s back, when in fact, these gestures are nothing more that a hollowed-out statue of a Greek Horse being deposited in Tel Aviv, away from the Knesset in Jerusalem where belief comes at a much harder price.
THE DAY OF THE MACCABEES – CHANUKAH – The Festival Of Lights:
This week, is the annual anniversary dating back some TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED YEARS, when the Maccabees won-back Jerusalem and the TEMPLE from Antiochus, the successor of Alexander the GREAT.
ANTIOCHUS FORCED THE JEWS TO WORSHIP IDOLS:
As the story goes, once the TEMPLE was cleansed of the Greek Idols, the Jewish Priests began the Re-Consecration of the Temple with the burning of sacred olive oil, but only one day’s worth of oil was available.
Not to be perturbed, the celebrating Jews lit the oil nonetheless, and to their total astonishment, the oil burned for EIGHT Days, which is what the Festival of Lights (Chanukah) represents.
JEWS . . . by religious DECREE, are not permitted to celebrate military victories, so, instead of celebrating the liberation of Jerusalem and the re-consecration of the Second Temple by war, we celebrate the outcome.
BUT I’M NOT THAT KIND OF JEW . . . I like to celebrate the warriors and heroes.
And just as an aside . . . the Montreal Motorcycle Group that I am a member of is called the MACCABEES.
THE GREAT OBAMA DECEPTION:
So . . . once again, let’s fast-forward more than two thousand two hundred years to today, where it seems as though Israel will need a miracle to survive the next few months, as Obama and his underlings scheme to convince the world that Israel’s safety is their primary concern by offering the Jewish State “tokens”, while Obama does all that he can to help the Iranians proceed with their project of death and destruction.
MIRACLES ARE MADE TO HAPPEN:
I don’t believe in miracles, unless the miracles are caused by men and women who have been given the GIFT of intelligence, competence and courage to overcome all odds, which I do believe is the miracle possessed by the TINY and nearly PERFECT Jewish State of Israel, standing alone in a world of darkness and cultural hatred.
I believe that in many of us, the MACCABEES are still alive, and are prepared, even at a great disadvantage and cost to do what must be done . . . or Israel will fall.
Make no mistake about it . . . Obama is today’s Antiochus. And Obama’s promise to watch Israel’s back is the Trojan Horse.
The questions we must be asking are these . . .
WHO AMONGST THE ISRAELIS WILL LEAD THE 21ST CENTURY MACCABEES? And if there is no one to lead, WILL THE LIGHTS OF CHANUKAH BURN BRIGHTLY IN 2014?
AND IN 2014 . . . will there be reasons for Jews everywhere to be giving thanks?
