So it’s Xmas, that holiday time of the year when my people (Children of Israel) fleece the Christian world as a revenge for blaming us for the crucifixion of Yeshua Ben Yosef. How do we do this. Well, we own Hollywood which puts out those wonderful holiday fils and most of the big department stores that you other folks shop in during your crazed, Xmas buying spree.
So let’s call it even, okay?
Of course I never even had a ticket to the big event. He was being crucified up on Golgotha and nearest I could get was a nose bleed seat up on the wall of Jerusalem. In fact my seat was up by the fish gate so I really had to crane my neck to see any of it (and I couldn’t see much).
It might be hard for most Christians to really understand the simple fact that Yeshua (Jesus just in case you still haven’t picked up on this) was Jewish. He probably was a rabbi so running around with graven images and idols was not his thing. If he could come back today (I haven’t seen him alive since that Friday in twenty something A.D.) he would be somewhat shocked and insulted. But the word was that he was a genuinely nice guy except when you screwed around with really sacred hold stuff then he could be a real bear. Remember, this was the guy who picked up a whip and began “swinging it” around when he saw the money changers doing business in the temple precinct. I guess he didn’t need any pocket change.
So the the Church eventually exonerated us. After all the proof was there all the time. We don’t do crucifixions. We stone people to death or at least we used to. Now stone age tribes in the Middle East use stoning. I used to get stoned back in the day but rocks weren’t involved. Just weed.
Anyway, while the church was diddling little boys for sexual release, they finally took time out to realized that the Jews didn’t put a hit out on Yeshua. He put the hit out on himself. He called it in. He believed that he had to die so he could purge the sins of the world (Wow, that worked really well, didn’t it?) and then he had to come back again. Can’t do that unless you die a martyr’s death. He could have taken poison or ran a sword or dagger under his ribs but that is suicide. Okay for the Romans, who actually killed Yeshua..they loved crucifixions (refer to Spartacus) but not for Jews. You see it was against their beliefs and Yeshua Ben Yosef was a believing man.
Anyway, the church let us off the hook so to speak but Mel Gibson, an important Christian in his own right, didn’t seem to get the word.
HIS BOSS (the Pontiff) SAID THE JEWS DIDN’T DO IT!
But he decided not to hear it and besides, antisemitism is fun.
In the end, as long as there are people like Gibson we have to continue getting even and frankly Hollywood and department stores are one of our best ways. You make money that you then give to us for things you don’t really need. What could be any better. That way you feel better and don;t have to deal with such historic facts like Yeshua being Jewish and that once the office of pontiff (pope) was held by one Gaius Julius Cesar.
