POLITICAL AND RACIAL HATRED -  מאַלעכ-אַמאָוועס 

The Jewish name for the angel of death is  Malekh-amo-ves  (malakh ha-mavet)  from the old testament.  The angel sent by God to bring about death is known as malakh ha-mavet in Hebrew. There are no references in the Bible to a specific angel of death but the concept is found frequently in Rabbinic literature and in Jewish folklore. 

In the latter, for instance, the practice of pouring out all the water in pots and so forth when a death occurs is said to be based on the belief of that the Angel of Death dips his sword in the water and poisons it.  Maimonides demythologizes the concept, understanding it as the life-denying, evil force that lurks in the human psyche. 

Maimonides quotes with much approval the Talmudic saying that Satan, the evil inclination, and the Angel of Death are one and the same. In Yiddish slang a man with destructive tendencies or one who is always running down others is called an Angel of Death.  

And with the horrific images and stories of the killings in Orlando, Charlottesville, Las Vegas, the fallen Angel is doing his thing. With those atrocities fresh in our minds, it is  time we solved our problems not prayed over them.  They are solvable if we get rid of the obstacles, namely our politicians.

This is more than just the second amendment, magazines, semi-autos, and bump-stocks this is more than radicalism, of a government mindset corrupted by the NRA, bought sold and paid for.  

People in positions of leadership, add the leader of our great nation, a woefully sick man mentally, President TRUMPS involvement in something he never should have opened his mouth about, the insane right winger Steve Bannon and FOX Faux news, and paranoia spewers who are so far right, they are not allowed in left-turn lanes. They are the sellers of hatred and with a demented man in charge,  sales are doing well, business is picking up unfortunately.  The death angel is very happy.


Our politicians are apparently powerless because bribes power the weak Congress and money really runs the game.  They call it  the party line, we call it NRA bribes.  ( Many others through lobbyists)   Our do-nothing elected officials  are meaningless, they don’t, nor do they challenge the events with solutions... they tell us they will pray and we should pray.   

You see prayer costs nothing, a few flowers is inexpensive and a sign of respect but changes nothing. In economics prayer is still cheaper than flowers.  It’s the common folk, friends and human beings with a heart that bring the flowers, the teddy bears, stuffed animals, homemade crafts,  and notes of love.

Orlando,  Paris, Nice, Turkey and Belgium, and the people did what people do when it comes to tragedy.  Prayer, for the dead, prayer for the wounded survivors and prayer for healing of those living, we pray looking for the good side, hoping the angel will come down or astride a white horse and make things better.  It won’t happen.  

Prayer is a tool to make people feel better for themselves.   Prayer by officials is a way of doing nothing but looking good in the moment.  Prayer, in reality it changes nothing.  Politicians love it, it’s the excuse they use when they are looking for an exit stage left.  What are the solutions...?

Does it mean don’t pray or think good thoughts?  No, prayer and good thoughts are for our salvation but rarely change things.  We have to make things better.  The real answer is taking action, doing something.  This kind of hatred won’t  stop because of prayer.  Being a volunteer, responder, working with authorities to make better neighborhoods, getting rid of snitch mentality, sharing love not hate, those things work and to be a giver when there is nothing one thinks physically will help. 

The real question is the catalyst, what really brings this on.  It is HATE,   and it exists all throughout the world.  We love but we also hate. Greed, jealousy, avarice, all contribute.   The coin has two sides.   It became front page, a hatred of Muslims, currently and nicely enhanced by a really sick bigoted individual who ran, cheated and won the highest office in the land on the GOP ticket, the Presidency, and it is embarrassing for this country to allow that bigot the press time to promote that hatred.  

In his year as President, have you seen as much corruption , cheating, lying, mist-truths and sheer falsehoods than any other President or leader in the history of the world with the exception of Hitler and Stalin?

Ask yourself, if you are one of the haters?  Are your actions and words creating violence.  If it bothers you the way others lead their lives by custom or fear, what have you done about it.   If it’s their customs and not harmful, learn about them.  If they live in fear, find a way to help.

Day after day I am affronted with statements or branding of people, their beliefs, and their physical or spiritual makeup, simply put, Its nothing but PREJUDICE  and HATRED being used to cement some really stupid brain cells provided by today’s TV twenty-four seven media repeating the lies, corruption, cheating and scamming, basically or categorically, of the spinning in todays politics.  

And I learned something, from ethnicies from all over the world.  Many are cautious about those who professes too strong a link to GOD, and should be watched.  Don’t think so, read my articles on the FAKIRS, those TV guys with GOD’s personal cellphone number and receive messages everyday from God.  i had suggested they take lie-detector tests but the companies were afraid to test them for fear of the machines bursting into flames. 

Think of it, sounds like Donald Trumps propaganda Twitter account.  If some manmade GODs offer redemption and those followers wear it out loud and proudly on their sleeve, watch out.   Godliness to me is judged by acts of the heart not words, words are cheap.
