Stun Grenades, Spitting Rabbis, and Zio-Amigos on Christmas Eve

Above we see Israeli soldiers firing stun grenades and pushing and shoving Palestinians dressed as Santa Clause. This comes coincidentally the same day as Guatemala has announced it will follow the US lead in moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Guatemala is one of the eight states which recently sided with the US in a UN General Assembly vote opposing the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales seems to have a deep affection in his heart for the Jewish state. Morales, who assumed the presidency of the Central American country in January of 2016 and who was awarded an “honorary doctorate” from Hebrew University later that same year,  made the announcement of the embassy move in a Facebook post on Christmas Eve:

“Dear people of Guatemala, today I spoke with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. We discussed the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel. One of the most important topics was the return of the embassy of Guatemala to Jerusalem. So I inform you that I have instructed the chancellor to initiate the respective coordination so that it may be.
God bless you.

Morales made a state visit to Israel in November of 2016 (presumably he didn’t go dressed as Santa Clause), at which time Knesset President Yuli Edelstein hailed the ties between Israel and Guatemala as being “deep and historic.” The JTA at the time panegyrized, “Since entering office in January, President Morales has led the struggle against government corruption in his country.” However, Wikipedia offers a slightly different take on Morales’ stand vis-à-vis corruption:

In January 2017, Morales’ older brother and close adviser Samuel “Sammy” Morales, as well as one of Morales’ sons, José Manuel Morales, were arrested on corruption and money laundering charges.

Wikipedia also describes the Guatamalan president as an “evangelical Christian.” I guess that’s why he signed off his Facebook post with the words “God bless you.”

But perhaps Morales would do well to watch the following video and pay special attention to the story told by Brother Nathanel of the rabbi who spat on a hospital floor upon hearing the name “Jesus” mentioned:

During his visit to Israel last year, Morales got a chance to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, and it seems the two became close amigos.

“Latin America has always been friendly to Israel, but I think we’re at a position where these relationships can be far, far, far advanced,” Netanyahu is reported to have told him.

I wonder who Morales holds in higher esteem, God or Netanyahu?

  1. here is a very interesting quote that explains anatomy of evil. Also the Israeli evil.
    —-
    “..‘Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice….
    …The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with a person, but with slogans, catchwords and the like that have taken possession of him
    . He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being.
    Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be CAPABLE OF ANY EVIL and at the same time INCAPABLE OF SEEING THAT it is evil.
    This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human being..”

  2. and the real power of tap root beliefs, wrought in early childhood by what is best termed hypnosis, i.e. the near absolute of the authority figures in a child’s life telling them what is true and what is false. only the minority ever escape such mental swaddling.

  3. MORALES BORROWED HIS TIE FROM JOSEPH MUSCAT.
    THE PARTICULAR COLOUR OF WHICH IS INDICATIVE THAT THE HANDSHAKE IS A WELL OILED AFFAIR.
