Stories about the Holy Land, from an Ex-Jew who noticed the wisdom of Jesus and converted to Christian. Surely anyone can see the moral superiority of the New Testament (over the old). It was an improvement. Islam was a further refinement. If you are still reading, perhaps you are ready for Shamir: "...the Wall is the utmost manifestation of the Jewish spirit ... is eruv, a symbolic Wall to separate them fro non-Jews ... built by the sweat of impoverished Palestinian workers, guarded by Russians, paid for by Americans to jail their brothers ... the Holy Land has become a high security prison for all its dwellers, Jews and non-Jews alike ... The Jewish state is enactment of the paranoid Jewish fear and loathing of strangers, while the Cabal policies of Pentagon are another manifestation of the same fear and loathing on global scale."
Shamir is a fantastic writer, and he cuts to the real meat of the matter. Don't be afraid of being called a racist for being a goy who dares to read about internal Jewish policies (openly debated and reported in Israel). I don't believe in the concept of "race" in the least bit - however, when there is a Jewish State for Jews Only and all others may be deported at the whim of a Jew...I think they have earned the right to be criticized, and yes - even be talked about as Jews.
"Jewish Spirit" - as coined by Shamir - is a spirit that can descend on any of us. Any time an American decides that the Iraqi dead are not worth counting... Racism in any form, really. But we all can escape from this spirit with Paul's message: We are ALL brothers. Shamir calls the Master-Slave Society as "Jewish" only because it is a large part of the Torah and other writings of the Rabbis. We are all guilty of it on some level.

Israel Shamir Our Lady of Sorrow - The Collected Essays from the Holy Land
While the deconstructionists, in their final gasping moments still attempt to discuss away the actual object of their contemplation, any serious literary criticism still retains the basic elements of form and content,. The equivalent is outside-inside, or personal appearance and character. Remember The Rocky Horror Show's >>...don't judge a book by its co-o-ver...<<? I recall that one of Oxford University's colleges has as a motto: Manners maketh man. To that we could add: Clothes maketh man. The successful person-art work should ideally balance the two categories where neither form nor content predominates. For example, excessive physical beauty often comes with a mental deficiency - as most of us know from experience!
Shamir's book is undoubtedly the product of the quick print, limited run publication era, something that Revisionist publisher Germar Rudolf knows only too well. Thanks to the computer age and the Internet it is now possible to get any book printed without going through mainstream publishing houses. While postage rates rise it is now possible to print locally worldwide, often at reduced rates. Publishing has been democratized and the free flow of information is - still - a reality. Official lies and cover-ups are difficult to sustain in a chaotic electronic world - but information overload has created the conscious >Hollywood< effect, e.g. 911, where blatant controlled demolitions are sold to the world as a >terrorist< event when in fact such are self-inflicted wounds that aim to sustain and justify a specific political power base.Read more ›
