The thing with Divine Revelation is that it is hard to notice. But sensitive people of all stripes can and do notice what is going on. Those with heartened hearts do not see what is happening even if its in front of their noses. But those who understand the ways of the Gods can sense it even thousands of miles away.
The Minister of the Interior (!) of Israel had this to say about the American election. (H/T Vladimir)
Shas chairman and Interior Minister Arye Deri said Thursday that Donald Trump’s election could herald the coming of the Messiah due to the blow he expects the next president will strike against the “non-Orthodox Jewish hold on the US government.”
“There is no doubt that one can give thanks to God that all those who have damned the [Jewish] covenant and would wipe out Judaism, thinking they could take control over the Land of Israel here and lead reforms in order to cause destruction received their blow,” Deri said during an address to the local religious council of Ashdod.
“Their influence and the great threat they posed to us because they held [control over] the US government… They understand that this power has disappeared and we can continue, God willing, to strengthen traditional religion and Judaism, transmitted down to us from generation to generation.”
Trump’s election, he added, presages the coming of the Messianic Age.
“If such a miracle can happen, we have already reached the days of the Messiah. Therefore, we are really in the era of the birth pangs of the Messiah when everything has been flipped to the good of the Jewish people.”
Now of course, when you have a hammer everything looks like a nail. To an Orthodox Jew, every hint of Divine Intervention looks like the coming of the Messiah. Different religions saw the Flood or the birth of Jesus in different ways; it’s natural that each have their own interpretation. But only one is True. And of course, we all know that what happened on Tuesday was not the Jewish Messiah. It was the prophecy of Kek.
And the works of Kek were done through the phallic avatar we call Anthony Weiner. Who incidentally is Jewish, so perhaps Mr. Deri has a point. But anyway.
These are minor details. I’m happy for Israel’s Minister. Let us all rejoice. Praise Kek.
