|This year's Seder sponsored by Maxwell House, Kosher taxed to the last drop|
In 1977, Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin visited Egypt's National Museum in Cairo and stated "We built the pyramids."
Begin loved the myths and talked them up.
"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."
The slavery, Moses, plagues, passover and exodus tall tales have scarred the minds of the masses for a long time now. It continues at the White House to this very day.
“After enjoying Seders with family and friends in Chicago and on the campaign trail, I’m proud to have brought this tradition into the White House,” Obama said Wednesday during a speech in Jerusalem. “I did so because I wanted my daughters to experience the Haggadah and the story at the center of Passover that makes this time of year so powerful.”There is the idea that Barry's mother was jewish so that could explain passing the myths down to the kids. Or maybe he's just following orders.
There also used to be this idea of separation of synagogue and state but that doesn't seem to apply anymore.
The passover tale is a strange one. The blood thirsty Hebrew god kills all the first born Egyptians so his chosen ones can be free to kill others. It goes downhill from there. A classic example of man creating a psychotic god in his own image. I think I'll pass it over.
"Let my people go." No Passover Seder would be complete without clips from Charlton Heston and Louie Armstrong and Bob Marley.
