“Letters go out to all provincial governors that all Jews are to be killed in one day, “even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month”.
The later scribes who composed the book of Esther apparently wished to vary the theme of the powerful Judahite at the court of the foreign king, and conceived the character of Esther the secret Jewess, the favourite concubine of the Persian king who was raised to be his consort.
At Esther’s intercession the king cancels the order and has Haman and his ten sons hanged on gallows which Haman had built for Mordecai the Jew (Esther’s cousin and guardian).
The king also gives Mordecai carte blanche, whereon Mordecai instructs the governors of the “hundred twenty and seven provinces” from India unto Ethiopia to have the Jews in every city “gather themselves together and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay and to cause to perish all the power of the people . . . both little ones and women . . .”
This countermanding decree being published, “the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day” and (a detail of interest) “many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them”.
Then, on the appointed day, the Jews “smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them, slaying of their foes “seventy and five thousand”. Mordecai then ordered that the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month Adar should in future be kept as “days of feasting and joy”, and so it has been, ever since.
Apparently Haman, Mordecai and Esther were all imaginary. No “king Ahasuerus” historically exists…No historical basis for the story can be discovered and it has all the marks of chauvinist propaganda…
Today people cannot “become Jews” (or very rarely), but a familiar picture of our time is conveyed in the words, “many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them”; in our generation they become “Zionist sympathizers” from the same motive.
How faithful a portrait of the 20th Century politician in Washington or London is given in the passage, “and all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them”. If neither king Ahasuerus nor “Mordecai sitting in the king’s gate” truly lived in 550 BC, nevertheless Mordecai in our century is real and powerful and two generations of public men have administered their offices from fear of him more than from care of their peoples’ interest.”
So Stallin, whose real name literally means “Jew’s son”, becomes the Haman of our Hollywood production and gets to kill 37 million Christians in fulfillment of the Talmud’s demand for gentile sacrifice.
While Hitler, the son of a Rothschild, hands over Western Europe to Jewish Communism, the Rothschilds remain ensconced in the Britain Empire which Hitler declared he wanted to preserve
