Jesus was “a refugee child who fled death gangs,” according to Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley.

O’Malley can forget about the Orthodox Jewish vote. His crass comment that managed to implicate Biblical Jews as “death gangs” also once again re-event Jesus into a politically correct figure.

The Palestinian Authority reinvented Jesus as a the first “Palestinian” in recent years,  but PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas this year settled  for simply calling him “a symbol for all Palestinians.”

It is not clear what the symbol means to the Palestinian Authority, but the Abbas regime does not look like it has any chance of being resurrected.

A recent poll by the respected  Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research revealed that only 45 percent of respondents support “the two-state” proposal and 65 percent believe that it is no longer practical.

As for Abbas, he is in the cellar among the respondents. If elections were held today, six years after Palestinian Authority Arabs were supposed to vote for a chairman, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh would handily defeat Abbas by a 10-point margin.

O’Malley’s Christmas Eve comment on Jesus as a refugee was a barb to Republican front-runner Donald Trump, who wants to deport hundreds of illegal immigrants.

Trump is not the only one. The Department of Homeland Security reportedly is planning to deport hundreds of immigrants from Central America who fled violence.

Nevertheless, O’Malley tweeted:

A Christmas Refugee Roundup sounds like something [Trump] would concoct. Remember: Jesus was a refugee child who fled death gangs.

  2. You need to rethink all of this, and look at it from a global perspective. Take yourself out of the equation, and try to think as Hashem thinks; try to look at the Master Plan of the Author Of All History.

    Judaism has been the one single most civilizing influence upon the entire Western world. Western legal systems are all built upon that foundation, whether any Western secularist wants to admit it or not. The Ten Commandments are the essential core litmus test for our list of crimes that are deserving punishment.

    And tort, versus stoning? Our entire legal system in the West, is based upon shelling money out, and providing for the best criminal justice system and legalists that money can buy.

    Our Western form of government, has the outer body of Rome, and Greece; but it contains the mind and soul of Israel.

    All of this, all of the positive attributes of Western legal systems, have their roots in the Tanakh. And without Judaism’s presence within this world, this simply would not be.

    It must be acknowledged, that all of this, was accomplished through the heart, mind, and soul of Judaism, albeit, masking as Christianity. For without Christianity having taken over the Roman Empire, our legal system, our form of government, would be based entirely upon Paganism.

    And that, my friends, is essentially cynicism, and a free-for-all, of the moneyed, landed rich versus the landless and oppressed poor, with absolutely no checks at all upon their affront and arrogance.

    Looked at from an historical perspective, where would Judaism be today, if not for Christianity? The Crusades – How many of you would still be practicing Jews today, if Islam had taken over the entire known world, during the Middle Ages? Many, some, few, none?

    And do you think that Islam would have changed upon its own, or just faded from the scene?

    You all know of the oppressive boot of Islam. Without the West looking over their shoulders, and essentially driving their entire economies, how would they have treated Israel, ever since the Crusades, until today?

    If the Western nations did not have large voting blocks of Christians, how much annual foreign aid, would Israel receive today?

    I tell you the truth; it all would be going to the Muslim nations, and likely in the form or arms, more than money; you would not have received one red cent.

    Take a good look, at what foreign aid does for your economy. Would there be any money for studying Torah all day, and not feeding your own through the physical labor of your own hands, if that aid dried up today?

    For your government would be quick to switch all of that money to defense against the Muslim nations around you.

    Without the Balfour Declaration, and its support by the West; where would Israel be today?

    You would still be, for the most part, the Diaspora.

    There was always a Christian nation that the Jew could find refuge in. Not every Jew; not every Christian nation; but communities of Jews, who made a life there.

    Sure, there were Pogroms, in various nations, at various times. And the West’s response of willing and appeasing blindness to the known German plan for genocide, leading into the Second World War, is entirely reprehensible. That is duly acknowledged.

    It is the exact same thing today, with radical Islam…

    But there was always a nation somewhere in the world, even during the Holocaust, where the Jew was more-or-less free to practice Judaism.

    Even today; what is the extent of the Diaspora?

    And without all of that ballet of many acts, between the Jew and the Christian, all Jews would have ended up like us – Moving far away from any link with the past, far into the hills, far into a pagan tribe, far from Rome and Jerusalem, so that you could even live. The soul and attitude would remain essentially Jewish, for generations; but the external trappings, even the 613 Mitzvot, would be, for the most part, lost via personal expediency, intermarriage, and time.

    You would have adopted the ways of the tribes around you, simply so that your children could live…

    Or else, you would have been exterminated, by death of forced conversion, one country at a time.

    As for us, I was told by my grandparents that our particular family’s surname was once spelled HPPH. But we became Scots, sheltered within their courts, in exchange for our valuable skills…

    It was the safest course, for us to survive, as a family.

    You need to look at the Plan, from Hashem’s point of view. Judaism, via the veil of Christianity, made it possible for the practicing Jew to survive, and to return, and to now fiscally survive as a nation, in an entirely hostile political and theological part of the world.

    Hashem spares who He Wills, in the Way in which He Wills, for His Own Purpose. Dare we even question that?

    Were not His men hidden from the Light for a short while, deep within cisterns, the dens of beasts, and flaming furnaces? You see that as a part of the Plan, do you not?

    Well that, is a symbolic prefigurement for future action, on a much grander scale…

    If you do not think that this is all a part of Hashem’s plan, then imagine a world where there was never the essentially Judaic civilizing influence of Christianity upon the Roman and then Western world, and only Islam had ever raised its ugly head within this physical world…

    So, do not consider the Christian to be a mortal enemy. The zeal of the evangelicals is simply misguided. Even most Christians, recognize this. But you only ever hear from, and of, the evangelicals.

    The true Jew, is completely unassailable by their words.

    Save your ire for the Muslims, who want to place your necks; all of our necks, really; physically and spiritually under their swords, their boots, and their chains.

    Hashem always wants you to look at the positives. You are to be aware of the negatives, of course, or there would be no need for the Prophets; but do not dwell upon negatives. Look at the Gift, the Plan, the Inheritance, the World To Come, all of history, in a positive light.

    And know that the Architect Of All History is always watching what each and every one of us says, and thinks, and does, Jew and goy alike.

    Shabbat Shalom.

  3. O'Malley tries to make history fit his fantacies in accord with a "liberal" politically correct pro Palestinian versian of Jesus. He never rebukes the Palesytinian claim that Jesus was a Palestinian, but adds that he was a Palestinian running from death gangs. THE TRUTH #1 Jesus was born a Jewish Male child to a Essene (VERY RELIGOUS) Jewish family in a Essene Jewish community. #2 He was an Essene itinerate preacher ,walking the hills of Judah ,preaching Judaism and Jewish-spiritual living to the uneducated masses. He was one amoung many. John the Baptist was another evangelist Essene noted in the gospels. #3 Historical research shows that the people loved these preachers and flocked to listen to them. There were no death gangs.
    O'Malley has shown himself to be dishonest,a man who distorts reality for his own olitical ends. He shows no regard for truth and is only out for his own narcistic goals. Do you want to vote for him???

  4. Hold on everyone. O'Malley is referring to this, from Wikipedia:

    The flight into Egypt is a biblical event described in the Gospel of Matthew (Matthew 2:13-23), in which Joseph fled to Egypt with his wife Mary and infant son Jesus after a visit by Magi because they learn that King Herod intends to kill the infants of that area. The episode is frequently shown in art, as the final episode of the Nativity of Jesus in art, and was a common component in cycles of the Life of the Virgin as well as the Life of Christ.
    Of course, for Jews, O' Malley is obviously pandering to the new American zeitgeist in vain hope of getting elected. No Democrat running is a friend of the Jewish people. But before we call HIM ignorant it behooves US to know what the allusion refers to.
