“God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says “Man, you must be puttin’ me on” God says, “No.” Abe say, What?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but the next time you see me comin’ you better run.”
Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ done?”
God says. “Out on Highway 61.”
Ahmadinejad is not shy about wanting to destroy every Jew on the planet. It seems his GOD is still having problems sharing the planet with the other GODs.
In a speech published on his website Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the ultimate goal of world forces must be theannihilation of Israel. Speaking to ambassadors from Islamic countries ahead of ‘Qods Day’ (‘Jerusalem Day’), an annual Iranian anti-Zionist event established in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini and which falls this year on August 17, Ahmadinejad said that a “horrible Zionist current” had been managing world affairs for “about 400 years.”
Nobody Thinks: Only 400?
Jews and the Muslims came out of the same desert, and on the slat of the Bell Curve, they should be more alike. The Jews were slaves first and their “god” was a jealous god, and he let them know it.
Both tribes were cut from the same father..Abraham. But the sons of Abraham—Ishmael and Isaac, were not cut from the same mother. Can we blame the mothers? Ishmael was a bully, and Abraham sent him and his mother Hagar away for picking on his younger brother. Later on God told Abraham to kill Isaac…to show his love for him. By all accounts, Isaac was the nicer kid.
The old testament God was not very lovable.
After the long exodus, it goes, God gave the Jews the ‘promised’ land. and he ordered them to go into Jericho and slaughter all the women and children, and ordered the Jews to not leave anyone alive.
Call me crazy, but that sounds just like something Ahmahdinjad would say.
Joshua took the battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down, and burnt it so badly that archeologists being paid big bucks STILL can’t find it.
So, why did these two genetically attached tribes of the ancient dessert have such different succeed rates?
Nobody Thinks: It was the Ten Commandments. Okay, it was a lot more than the Ten Commandments. Somewhere there’s a genetic scholar that believes it was in the genes. Ishmael was a bully…he spawned a whole line of bullies. Isaac was ALWAYS getting picked on. The Jews have had a history of just that.
All this time has gone by, and they are STILL waiting for Armageddon. God said the Jews were the chosen ones. Allah said the Islamists are the chosen ones.
Can I get a vowel here?
So…who’s going to win out in the end?
There’s an old Bible Story not much told about Joshua, and the Battle of Rephidim. While the Jews had been walking in the desert, they were having trouble finding water and food, but there was something else that scared them even more than dying on the desert floor: The Amalekites..the desert raiders.
Moses told Joshua to go and fight them. And Moses said he would stand on a high hill and raise his arms and pray to God, and as long as Joshua saw Moses arms raised, he would win the battle.
The battle began and the Jews held the line, Moses was holding up his arms to the sky, and then some of the men got excited, broke the line, and went after the swords of the Amalekites, then Moses arms fell down. The Amalekites came back, and Joshua, much like George Washington years later, ran after them, and rallied them back to fight.
The Jews won the battle.
And here’s the kicker, that makes me give a big chuckle.
When Joshua looked up at the hill, old Moses, who by then was over a hundred, had Aaron holding up one arm, and Hur the other.
I’m really not sure how to take that, but it’s funny.
Metaphorically speaking, you could say the Jews of 2012 have allies in war to hold up the hand of Moses: England and America. (Well, we hope. Not so sure with Obama)
Ahmadiemjad might have to wait another 400 years if he decides to attack the tribe of Joshua.
Highway 61 is yet to be finished.
