The Mystery of the Jews

“Why post such a controversial video?” you may ask

My simplest answer would be, “Because it is controversial.”

The Rothschild family is not the only family of Jews on this planet. I am fed up with the endless harping about the “Rockefellers, Rothschilds, English Royals and Illuminati.” Too many people are using this stuff as a reason to hate and distrust all people of Jewish heritage.

I am of Boston Irish heritage. If people were to look at the life of James (Whitey) Bulger, and decide that all the Irish were sociopathic serial killers, I would protest. The same would be so if I were, as a descendant of Ireland, to say that all Britts were murdering tyrants like Oliver Cromwell.

Back to “…because it it controversial.”

If simply posting a video detailing some of the positive contributions of the Jews causes you to become angry, you need to ask why. Is it the exciting new “facts” about the Jews that you picked up online? The problem about online “facts” is that they need to be verified. No scholar is allowed to cite Wikipedia in a serious thesis for the obvious reason that ANYONE can edit the story. Same with the “Rothschild” conspiracy stuff. Have you ever looked at the number of mutations there are on that virus? Most of these theories are absolutely Rococo with detail.

I am trying to balance things by reminding people of the praiseworthy side of Jewish history. So yes, we have the Rothschilds on the dark end of the spectrum. But on the bright end we have Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus, not to mention Albert Einstein, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin.

marktwain“…If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.

The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

– Mark Twain

leotolstoy“What is the Jew?…What kind of unique creature is this whom all the rulers of all the nations of the world have disgraced and crushed and expelled and destroyed; persecuted, burned and drowned, and who, despite their anger and their fury, continues to live and to flourish. What is this Jew whom they have never succeeded in enticing with all the enticements in the world, whose oppressors and persecutors only suggested that he deny (and disown) his religion and cast aside the faithfulness of his ancestors?! The Jew – is the symbol of eternity. … He is the one who for so long had guarded the prophetic message and transmitted it to all mankind. A people such as this can never disappear. The Jew is eternal. He is the embodiment of eternity.”

– Leo Tolstoy

“Are you the king of the Jews?”

– Pontius Pilate
