Samson Option Redux

Samson Option Redux

CJB already pointed out the similarity between  Samson and the Philistines in Gaza and although there is no connection either ethnically or historically there can be no doubt that religious fanatics are trying to craft a narrative. There is no doubt that Samson acts as a representative (type) of the nation. So CJB has some good points but he tends to conflate and twist things which is why I offer the article below as a corrective:

The Samson Option

Since that video appeared another video has been made by Steven Ben Nun who is a Jewish Christian and he also draws parallels between the nation and Samson and then extrapolates to the Great Harlot of Revelation 17.  While I am not entirely in agreement with him, he has many interesting and pertinent things to say.

His highlight of the contact been Netanyahu and Hamas is very interesting and Steven shows this quote from a Haaretz article:

"Both the Egyptians and the Qataris are angry with Hamas, and they were going to cut all ties with them. All of a sudden Netanyahu shows up as a Hamas advocate, pressuring Egypt and the Qataris to continue"with the financial support,said Lieberman, adding that Netanyahu's policy is tantamount to "surrender to terrorism".

Here is a screenshot I made from the video (Haaretz is behind a paywall):
























This definitely looks planned to me. Playing to the religious audience and the fanatics.  And then there is the fact that Zvi Sukkot (whose name means tabernacles or booths) is a member of Parliament. Sukkot (Tabernacles) is a Torah-commanded holiday celebrated for seven days, it started on the evening of Fri, 29 Sept 2023 – Fri, 6 Oct 2023, the day before the Hamas invasion. The party goers and ravers who were slaughtered were liberal non-religious Jews having fun on the holy day of Simchat Torah. Simchat Torah or “Torah celebration”, is a Jewish holiday that celebrates and marks the conclusion of the annual cycle of public Torah readings, and the beginning of a new cycle. Simchat Torah is a component of the Biblical Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret (“Eighth Day of Assembly”), which follows immediately after the festival of Sukkot in the month of Tishrei (occurring in September or October on the Gregorian calendar).

No religious Jew is going to cry over the death of liberal Jews partying on Simchat Torah, especially as those same liberal Jews were protesting against the reformation of the Judiciary and turning Israel into a dystopian theocracy.  The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

Iranian response


Iran will “not allow disturbance in shipping in this sensitive area” Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi was quoted as saying in state media, while leading a delegation to Paris, Reuters reports. However, it’s unclear at this point how far Iran is willing to go in this escalating game of chicken with the US and UK – both of which have warships and other military assets in the gulf region.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari, stated at a U.N. session on Tuesday that the occupied Golan Heights is an integral part of Syria and its liberation is a high priority.

Liberating occupied Golan Heights from Israel high priority: Jaafari

Israel attacks Iranian stronghold in Syria – report
Last month the Syrian army said it had shot down a number of Israeli missiles targeting the location

It is a good thing no other rogue nations have nuclear weapons


We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets
and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps
even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air
force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: 'Israel must be like
a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.' I consider it all hopeless
at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from
coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however,
are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather
the second or third. We have the capability to take the
world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen
before Israel goes under.
