Now here was a guy considered by ancient scribes to be a madman. Is it fair to call someone a madman if he kills his family and many others whom he considered threats to his rule? That's kind of a no brainer. Unless he was simply a murder hobbyist of course. Not a good Jew. In fact, according to the then-powers-that-be, he wasn't even a Jew at all, not even close. He was, to call a spade a spade, an Edomite douchebag wannabe Hebe. So why are the Israelis so hot and bothered to cite his burial spot as some sort of shrine? It's gruesome, it's queer, it's shallow, it's facile and convenient, it is so ur-Israeli. If these lunatic, creepy Zionists could reflect for only a moment on their cruel and grasping ways and on the great harm, suffering and injustice they have caused the Palestinians, they'd probably melt like the evil Nazi archaeologist in Indiana Jones. What Israel does to the Palestinians is unholy. Unholy and illegal. Of all the peoples in the world, you'd think the Jews would have developed a Buddha-like compassion for the suffering of others. Ooops. Fail.
