Passover prayer: A Palestine without Palestinian

On April 14, Israeli finance minister, Yair Lapid, posted his Passover prayer on his Facebook page, asking his G-d to help Zionist regime get rid of Native Muslims and Christians from the Holy Land.

After complaining that Arabs don’t want Jews to live in peace in Palestine which G-d promised to Abraham (he was not Jewish) – and the whole world turned against the “Jewish homeland” with antisemitism on rise among many European nations – Lapid asked his “vengeful G-d” to help Jews get rid of Arabs from Palestine.

I know You cannot remove this burden. But couldn’t You just role it to the side a bit? This (Palestinian) boulder is a heavy burden on our hearts. They say no one can stop a terrorist. But You can – and we need You in so many situations like that, where we have no other solution,” wrote Lapid as reported by Arutz Sheva newspaper on April 14, 2014.

Only if Lapid had read the history of the creation of state of Israel from some objective source – he would know that no one was able to stop Jewish terrorists from establishing a homeland in Palestine. For example, Charles A. Laffiteau PhD in ‘Jewish Terrorism and the Creation of the State of Israel’ wrote: “Terrorism was used by the adherents of the Jewish religion many centuries before it was ever used by Christians, Muslims and other types of religious extremists. Jewish terrorist groups, such as, Irgun and the Stern group, and the Jewish Zionist terrorism played a major role in the creation of the state of Israel as well as in the expanding Israel’s borders since 1948.

We are told that on the festival of Passover Jews thank G-d for the liberation of Hebrew tribes from Egypt under the leadership of prophet Moses, where they lived in slavery for centuries. However, all three major Jewish festivals (Passover, Purim and Yom Kippur) are meant to celebrate the mass-killing of non-Jewish people. For example, during Ahmadinejad’s presidency, Jewish groups held prayers on Purim in the US and Israel calling for the destruction of Iranian people. On February 26, 2007, the Jerusalem Post reported that Jewish extremists organized a mass prayer attended by 10,000 Jewish children to pray for the death of former President of Iran, Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It was on Purim 1994, when US-born Rabbi Baruch Goldstein, entered Ibrahimi Mosque with a machine gun. He shot and killed 30 and wounded 150 Palestinian Muslims while they knelt in prayer.

Several historians have claimed the Bible’s story of Jewish exodus from Egypt 3000 year ago, a myth.

Rabbi David Wolpe has questioned the biblical story of Exodus (reported by L.A. Times, 2001): “The truth is that virtually every modern archaeologist who has investigated the storyof the Exodus, with very few exceptions, agrees that the way Bible describes the Exodus is not the way it happened, if it happened at all.” Rabbi Richard Hirsh wrote in introduction to Haggadah “A Night of Questions” – “Is the story true? No, not if we mean an accurate account of events that happened more or less the way they are told. We do not tell the story of Exodus because it is historically accurate; we tell the story because it is our story and we need to recover and uncover the eternal ideas that this story conveys.” Both Rabbi Waxman and Rabbi Stern agrees with Rabbi Richard Hirsh’s point of view.
