Biblical Unmentionables

Everyone knows that Moses received the 10 commandments containing “Thou shall not kill?” But few know that he had no kill problems with the people who went against him or criticized him or questioned his decisions or even said things he didn’t want to hear. Thousands of Israelites never lived to cross the Jordan River because they had first crossed Moses. When some of his men mingled with a few of the Midianite ladies, Moses sent in his armies to wipe out the Midianites. Make war, not love! could have been his motto. After killing all the men the troops came back with the bounty of their victory along with the women and children. How did Moses greet his victorious troops? He was angry. “Why have you allowed the women and children to live?” he yelled and commanded that they all be killed. Almost all. Young, virgin women could be spared and used as “wives.”

These aspects of Moses are rarely mentioned. I’ve just quoted from Num 31. Moses never crosses the Jordan, but before he dies he tells Joshua to kill everyone on the other side, wipe them out “so that not even their name survives.” Joshua follows his master’s orders. After listing kingdom after kingdom that was destroyed Joshua 10:40 summarizes: “So Joshua subdued the whole region … He left no survivors. He totally destroyed all who breathed, just as the Lord, the God of Israel, had commanded.”

An unwritten rule labels these passages unmentionable. Concentrate on Joshua at Jericho and anything about Moses from the time he was a basket case to his receiving stone tablets from a burning bush will do. Skip the other stuff!
Were the Bible a CIA document the Solomon section would be heavily black-pen sanitized. Mentioning his 300 wives and 600 concubines doesn’t sit well with family values. And how wise was that? Not to mention how this wise guy taxed the people into poverty and caused the kingdom to split in two.
Even though Moses, Joshua, Solomon and the kingdom of Israel itself live only in a book and cannot be found with historical evidence, it forms the basis of giving a majority of Palestine to the fanatical Zionists.
I guess we have to wait for a new book where the people “fit” the battle of Palestine and Zionists come tumbling down – on the way to conquering the ungodly powers who back them.


“Most people who support Israel can’t tell the differences
between fiction and reality
or the difference between religion and politics.
The people in charge can,
all too well.
But they can’t tell the difference between money and life.”
Dartwill Aquila
