Michael Lear: Part Six: The True America/The True Israel
By Michael Moriarty
"Sexual drives seem to be, for myself at any rate, the fundamental elixir in all of human energy."
That quote of mine came out of my defense for the number of nudes I place on my Facebook page.
If I could create a "run" on nude paintings, increase their sale price?! I would do it.
Reproductions of a nude in every living room!
God's greatest visual vitamin!!
What might all that have to do with this week's edition of Michael Lear? Nakedness… and honesty.
The leaders of two of the world's greatest nations, Russia and America – both leaders similarly Marxist.
Barack Hussein Obama and Vladimir Putin.
Both as transparent to the West as a Russian novel in the original or Chinese hologram.
All wrapped in the mystery of deliberately shameless "flexibility".
And both Obama and Putin now are notoriously "flexible"!
I recently read a most enlightening comment:
His true intention
In short, President Obama is stripping America of all of its defenses, leaving the once, most powerful nation in the world naked.
God never wore clothes.
Well, the Judeo-Christian God never did.
He never had to wear clothes.
Who would want heavy robes in a blistering Middle East anyway?!
The very home of The Bible?
Jehovah's "Chosen People", the Jews, facing epochs of anti-Semitism for its entire, four thousand year history?!
Actually stripped naked unto death during the Holocaust!
The ever "flexible" Adolf Hitler plotting the entire extermination of the Jewish nation!
And what happens?
Those four millenniums of Jewish History eventually culminate in The Six Day War.
Israel vs. Abdul Nasser's "great Arab Nation, strong, secular, socialist!"
The one great obstacle to Nasser's dream: Israel.
The Six Day War, forty-seven years later, is still going on.
The birth of modern Israel, May 14, 1948!
Renaissance Israel is now 66 years old.
Still the mere size of and seeming strength-less-ness of Donatello's David when compared to the entire Middle East?!
Israel survives the hatred pored on it by an ocean of Arab neighbors.
Israel is, as most of the world must know by now, not merely 66 years old.
4,000 tears, like Israel's 4,000 years, have been shed daily since that nation's Abraham took upon himself the entire destiny of his people.
With that name in mind, I feel certain that, because of the Civil War and the end of slavery in America, Abraham Lincoln is the Biblical creator of The True America.
I expect the greatness of the United States has really only begun.
In that sense, America is not 66 years old, but roughly 166 years old since the death of Lincoln, the end of slavery and the true beginning of that nation's original dream: "All men are created equal."
In that sense, both Israel and America have been reborn.
Both face threats now, from within and without, that threaten their very existence.
May they never abandon one another!
