Parent Article: Report Back On Anti Zionist Action in Newton
Hidden with code "Policy Violation"
Re: Report Back On Anti Zionist Action in Newton
19 Aug 2005
From the Book “The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception”, Michael Baigent, Richard Lee

Another anomaly that emerges in fresh light (From true interpretation of the Dead Sea Scrolls) concerns the fortress of Masada, and the character and mentality of its tenacious defenders. When the holy land rose in revolt (Against the romans) in AD66, Masada was one of the first strongholds to be seized -- by Menahem, the son or grandson of Judas of Galilee, founder of the “Zealots” (to which many members of Rabbi Yeshua ben Miriams earliest followers belonged). Perched high on a sheer sided mountain overlooking the southwestern shore of the dead sea, some thirty miles below Qumran, the place became the zealots/rebels most important bastion against the romans, the supreme symbol and embodiment of resistance. Long after this resistance had collapsed elsewhere, Masada continued to hold out. Jerusalem, for example, was occupied and razed within two years of the insurrections outbreak -- in AD68. Masada remained impregnable though, until ad 74. From within its walls some 960 defenders withstood repeated assaults and a full scale siege by a Roman army estimated to have numbered fifteen thousand.
Despite the tenacity of this resistance, Masadas position by the Spring of AD74, had become hopeless. Cut off from reinforcement, entirely circled by Roman troops, the garrison no longer had any prospect of withstanding a general assault.....The garrison, under the command of Eleazar ben Jair, came to their own decision. The men Killed their wives and children. Ten men were chosen to kill their comrades. Having done so they proceeded to draw lots, choosing one to dispatch the remaining nine. After this was done he set fire to the buildings in the fortress and killed himself. Altogether 960 men women and children perished in this “Mass Suicide”. When the Romans finally burst through the gate the following morning, they found only corpses amid the ruins.” The date in AD74 when the romans finally burst through the walls of the zealot stronghold was April 15th.

I'M THE SLIME by Frank Zappa

I am gross and perverted I'm obsessed and deranged
I have existed for years But very little has changed
I am the tool of the Government And industry too
For I am destined to rule And regulate you
I may be vile and pernicious But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out From your TV set
You will obey me while I lead you And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you Don't go for help . . . no one will
heed you
Your mind is totally controlled It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told Until the rights to you are sold
That's right, folks . . . Don't touch that dial
Well, I am the slime from your video Oozin' along on your livin' room floor
I am the slime from your video Can't stop the slime, people lookit me go
