Someone got the brilliant
idea that if they could capture the hearts and minds of the
evangelicals and other religious groups that they could rise
to power in America. A corollary to this view is that if
they could capture the hearts and minds of the Jewish
political elite, it probably would be the tipping point.
That probably was the tipping point.
Bush’s interest in Jews is
First, by supporting Israel,
he and his minions are guaranteed to get a lot of Jewish votes
and a lot of Jewish money for himself and other politicians
who support his agenda.
Second, by befriending
Israel, Bush has a regional power base from which to control
Mid East oil in his quest for world domination.
Third, with Jewish support,
Bush is given a pass on whatever policies he pursues
regardless of the consequences or the morality.
I use the word Bush here not
only to mean Bush the individual, but to identify the
consciousness of his group.
Bush’s tactics are not
subtle. He has the consciousness of a brutal dictator.
He will lie, cheat, steal, murder, torture… whatever it
takes… to accomplish his ends. I don’t have to prove
this. I am only describing strategies Bush has used
consistently in accumulating power and in pursuing his wars.
Bush has the same
consciousness that Hitler had and ironically, a great many
Jews have aligned themselves with him. By aligning with
Bush, these Jews have acquired the power they needed to
‘defend’ Israel. The problem is that the power that
was acquired was a political payoff. It was a payoff
that said, “I will give you the power you are asking for as
long as you do not get in my way as I pursue my own goals.”
It is what you might call an unholy alliance. Such
unholy alliances are the
essence of Bush’s grand strategy and can be seen in everything he does.
That is why I say that a lot
of Jews have agreed to give up Judaism in exchange for power.
When you stop living your ideals--which is to say, the values
your religion teaches--you are no longer practicing your
religion, no matter what you call yourself.
Many Jews are sacrificing
their moral authority and their dignity to acquire this
undeserved power. Not only do they look the other way as
Bush goes about making war on innocent people in his quest for
world dominance, but they are content to look the other way
even if, in order to achieve that world dominance, he is
willing to destroy America and its democracy along the way.
Bush has given Jews what they
think they want. His methods are brutal and some Jews
have torn a page from Bush’s book and adopted his brutal
consciousness as their own.
In the end, Bush and his
minions will fall and be swept away by history like all the
other despots who have tried to accumulate power that does not
belong to them. And in this case, many Jews are among
his minions and they too will be swept away, and maybe Israel
with them. Of course it is not only Jews who have gone
for the ride.
God loves people. In
his love for people he is the ultimate teacher. And we
will all learn what we need to know. And what we need to
know is how to love, how to live in freedom, how to live in
peace, how to forgive, and how to be a human being in the
image of God. How long will that take? A better
question is, how long will it take you?
