Amazing behind the scenes look at the crazies running Israel

I just found this video on YouTube. Check it out:

Now, the guy speaking is Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson aka "the Rebbe", one of the most influential rabbis among the Hassidim/Haredim Orthodox Jews i.e, the folks who are getting more and more power and influence in Israel. So strong is the cult of this "rebbe" that many of his followers actually consider him to be God. To get a sense of the worldview of this "rebbe" it is important to check out his own words. Like these:

Q: What is the primary mission for our generation to accomplish?

A: The main avodah of this generation is to go out to the final war of the golus, to conquer and to purify all the gentile countries.

The word "avodah" means "serving God" while "golus" refers to the exile of the Jews. So translated into plain English, here is what the "rebbe" says:

The main way to serve God is to go out to the final war of the Jewish exile, to conquer and to purify all the gentile countries

Charming, no?

As an aside, I would note that the US Congress bestowed (posthumously) the Congressional Gold Medal on this crackpot. The bill was passed by unanimous consent of both houses! Even better, Jimmy Carter made the "rebbe's" birthday the official "Educationa and Sharing" Day (no wonder US schools produce semi-literate morons by the millions...).

Anyway, notice the key moment in the video: Shneerson clearly says that the (presumably) secular rulers of Israel made him the promise never to negotiate about land. So this entire "Land for Peace" was clearly a canard from day 1 (the interview was made at the time Shamir was Prime Minister).

Bottom line: Israel is a self-declared racist state run by messianic crazies.

Not exactly big news, but one more confirmation of the fact.
