Left vs. Right: Which wing fights Jewish Nationalism?

“Zionist Union leader Avi Gabbay faced criticism from MKs in his party Tuesday for telling party activists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev on Monday that “the Left forgot what it means to be Jewish.” Does this quote indicates a shift from the left to the right? Is it a main difference between left thinking and right thinking in Israel? Could this quote also show that the difference is Universal,  not just Jewish but that the difference is psychological in all personalities? Avi Gabbay is a leftist leader. He is the head of the Zionist Union, the leftist opposition in the Israeli Knesset. He had an insight that his leftist friends cannot accept: Leftist thinking is collectivist, global and anti nationalistic whether it is Jewish nationalism (Bait Yehudi), Israeli nationalism (Menachem Begin) or British nationalism (Brexit!). True, the Jewish left in Israel forgot what it means to be Jewish! My statement is not an indictment of the left. it is to teach my readers, as I have promised you, about the differences between the left and the right in business and relationships so you can select better partners to fit you. The left is Maxist, Carl Marx wrote at the end of his book Das Capital, “The goal is the withering of the State.” The only reason the leftist party in Israel calls itself the Zionist Union is to get more votes during elections. The left cannot be true Zionist unless it has the insight of Gabbay and accept that they don’t know how to be Jewish! If they do that they would be finished as a political party!  Zionism is Jewish nationalism and Gabbay got it. What rift it will cause to Mapai, the labor party of the first prime minister of Israel David Ben Gurion is yet to be seen. I predict that Israel itself is moving to the right in order to find its Jewish roots! Good or bad, I leave it out to you to decide. If you are leftist you probably say Bad (except Gabbay) and if you are rightist you probably say Good! Enjoy!

History of the Jewish people: The transition period (Segment 4).

In the library of the university of Virginia Beach in Virginia there is a text of readings about the Sea People. These remarkable people who mastered the Bronze age are also mentioned in the Bible as the original Philistines! They built Tarshish and the Greek Acropolis before they brought the first pyramid to Egypt around 7000 BC. According to Edgar Cayce, the Sea People migrated east to the  Mediterranean area, especially Egypt and Canaan, from western regions in the islands of the Azores, Morocco, Atlas mountains, Spain and Greece during and after a giant flood that local legends described occurring 9000 years ago! They brough the bronze age to Canaan. Here it gets really interesting. Edgar Cayce describes a civil war within the sea people nation just before migrating east, probably triggered by flood stress, but more likely over religion.  You see, he says, half the people were monotheistic (the first worshipers of Elohim, not just sun worshipers like the Hyksos were). These insightful Sea People he calls “followers of the law-of-one,”  and opposing them were atheistic Sea People he calls the Bliel people (“without God” in Hebrew). Edgar Cayce did not know Hebrew. The Bliel people won the war and the believers in the one God escaped some to Greece in the west but mostly to Mesopotamia in the east, and from there to Egypt (first Dynasty), and then to Canaan. In the Torah they are considered the good Philistines, spared by Joshua during the conquest of Canaan. In Canaan they settled on the edge of the Sinai peninsula by the sea and built two cities – Gaza and Ashdod. In the Bible the sea people became known as the Philistines, the indigenous people of Canaan (Palestine is a Roman term derived from the word Philistine in the Bible) who were friends of Abraham who migrated from Ur in Mesopotamia to Canaan and bought land in Hebron near Gaza in 1800 (The time the Hyksos got to Egypt). The Bible say he became a close friend with his neighbor Abimelech, King of the Philistines. Later, the Philistines became corrupted by idol worship of the defeated tribes of Canaan, but when Abraham got there they were still monotheistic. About 500 years later, right after Moses time, in Genesis, God told Joshua to destroy all the idol worshiping tribes of Canaan, but spare the Philistines!  These incredible sea people who settled by the sea had a language that was not Hebrew but many ancient Philistine words were of Hebrew origin (or vice-versa, no way to know), such as Seren, a local leader (Seren is the rank of a captain in the Israeli army today), Baal (husband in Hebrew today), Dagon (small fish), Caphtor (Button in Hebrew), mishkeh (mashkeh is a drink in Hebrew, you see, the Philistines liked to have orgies and drink alcoholic beverages) Later in history, when the two Canaanite nations became enemies, Samson went to Gaza to have a drinking orgies with Delila their queen (read the Biblical story of tamut nafshi im plishtim). By that time the two Canaan nations became bitter enemies and fought a lot (aggravated today by being Muslim, although monotheistic!), the Philistines captured the Ark of the Covenant (Samuel 4:1-10) but David defeated the Philistines’ strongman Goliath. But in earlier times when Joshua entered Canaan, re-conquered Hebron (Abraham’s city) and Lachish near Gaza, the Philistines were their friends, that is why of all the Canaanite tribes ordered to be destroyed by Joshua the Israelite commander, the Bibles says the Philistines were spared! Both Peoples were monotheistic believing in one God at the time of Joshua, until the early Philistines were corrupted by the defeated heathen tribes of Canaan. The next segment will take you deeper into monotheism, how did Abraham really got it!

Not a view point but the truth!

Searching for consensus on anything in Judaism is impossible. We need consensus how to achieve peace and prosperity for Israel and Judaism after 60 years of turmoil. Peace will not stay a dream another 60 years. Love must replace ambivalence, knowledge of Israel and Judaism must replace ignorance, working views must become more homogenized, more positive and more action oriented.  Herzl statement “Eem Tirzu ein zo agada” must be again empowered by all Jews for it  not to remain a prolonged dream. It is sad but true that Rabbis, Jewish and Israeli leaders underestimate the lack of knowledge and understanding of our great country, inspired Bible and painful Jewish history. You all know who said the “Eem tirzu…” but do you know who said “Eem lo ani lee, me lee?” and “Eem lo achshav, ematai?” Few do!  Please join me in welcoming the truth into our hearts.
