I had the opportunity to be in the promised land of Israel and visit almost all the towns ( Jerusalem , Haifa, Ashdod, Akko etc ) having worked for Jewish charterers from Tel Aviv for quite some time.
They were indeed the quintessential Shylocks and Fagins, greedy and selfish to the core -- i shudder while even thinking about them-- about the meanness of human nature.
I had many young psuedo Jewish East European friends , who came to this land of milk and honey more out of survival instincts and eking out a decent living , than out of religious faith.
For example , if would ask , say, a Jew from Russia " If Israel were to play a soccer match with Russia , whom will you cheer for ?"
Pat would come the reply " Russia of course, I don't care for Israel --when i make enough money i will go back to Russia!".
From such frank guys i learnt a lot about Jews and their mangy propaganda machine.
ONE SUCH STORY WAS ABOUT BAR KOKHBA.
Bar Kokhba's foolish and selfish antics forced a mass exodus of Jews out of Judea in 136AD.
Ten thousand of them came to my beautiful and amazing, home state of Kerala in India.
They lived there unmolested by the locals, till after 1900 years the call of Israel ( read as monetary incentives ) formed in 1948 after the 2nd world war , forced these wretched souls to go back to Israel.
Kerala is the ONLY place in the world , over 2000 years where Jews were never persecuted or even held in contempt, despite their inheret clannishness and greed. .
Sometimes i wonder--why ALL the people ALL over the world ALL the time --was against the Jews-- Considering what Israel is doing to the Palestinians nowadays , you can guess the answer yourself.
These exodus refugees just followed the path of Thomas ( Jesus's disciple ), who came here by ship after the crucification of christ and died here too. After all since the ancient days of Egyptian Pharaohs and Jewish heroes Kings David/ Solomon --the Malabar cinnamon was more expensive than gold. In fact King Solomon's royal seal is etched in the script of my native mother tongue MALAYALAM.
In 7000 BC Emperor Vikramaditya , the Indian Aryan ruled from Jerusalem to Cambodia. The Jewish symbol of star of David is a Dravidian symbol, as is etched on our ancient temples. I am a Dravidian myself.
here we go--
Simon Bar Kokhba was reputed to be the last descendant of the David/ Solomon bloodline.
He had this DELUSION OF GRANDEUR that he is the prophesied messiah and NOT Jesus Christ or John the Baptist . He went around with the rallying FORESKIN cause to achieve this end .
He tried to take on the might of the Roman emperor Hadrian Caesar Traianus Hadrianus Augustus,( Marcus Aeurelius of Gladiator hollywood movie fame was his son in law , he groomed him ) whose bust I have seen in the Naples Museum. Hadrian build the Pantien of Rome and the 117 km long great wall in Scotland.
The bone of contention was Circumcision, which Hadrain banned—as physical mutilation of a god given body part. It was NOT to provoke the Jews at all. The style of circumcision practised by Palestinian Jews prior to bar Kokhba removed only the 'tip' of the foreskin, not all of it. Bar Kokhba wanted the entire thing out.
Hardrian ( a homosexual ) did NOT like the bizarre practise of the rabbi using his wine rinsed mouth to suck out the blood from the circumcised penis of babies, in a so called sterilisation procedure.
Considering the paedophilia in churches nowadays , i guess he was not too far away from the mark.
Hadrian loathed Bar Kokhba who was not a holy man like Christ or John the Baptist. He felt Bar Kokhba was on a selfish personal agenda of taking a place for himself in history .
He did NOT want this circumcision political/ religious hush hush identity . If you must have such an identity it should be open , and honourable -- not on your hidden family jewels, unlike the military uniform.
It was about creating a separate hidden identity for Jews --away from Christians. For the true Christians had rejected Bar Kokhba wholesale.
Bar Kokhba was a extremely cruel man who initiated his 5,50000 soldiers by taking away one small finger. The other choice was to uproot a Cedar tree, which was ENVIRONMENTAL RAPE in those days.
Finally Hadrian declared " enough is enough" and massacred all Bar Kokhba's fanatic army , cornered him and beat him to death.
His entire army was massacred and left to rot in the sun , making the stench terrible. A lot of survivors were hiding in deep holes under the ground , with their food, water and gold. He smoked all of them out , with this stench-- as a military tactic.
And for 17 years he did NOT allow the Jews to bury their dead. Jerusalem the capital made by King David was banned for all Jews. Judea was renamed as Palestine.
Hadrain , a noble Caesar never celebrated his victory and held no victory parade in Rome as was usual after a hard fought war.
When Bar Kokhba was born i guess they threw away the wrong end.
Here is a 7000 year old Vedic chant-- Grace and peace!
