Subject: FW: Netanyahu Gives Obama a Purim Scroll
FOR ALL>>>This bit of info which Netanyahu promotes as being a Jewish celebration is something that the Jews have conjured up after the Masoretes completed their New Hebrew language Bible, the Massoretic Text…The Old Test ament in a modern Hebrew language that these Talmudic Masoretes re-created as if their version was the true Hebrew language Old Testament…Not! Hebrew as a language had died out back in 400 or so, B.C. and Greek was the common language. What was re-created by the Masoretes was the Masoretic Text as they edited and scrubbed the ancient Scrolls and text which they could find available between 450 A.D. and 913 A.D. when they finally gave the Catholic Pope a copy ---which then became the common Old Testament in use today…BUT…there is an older and far more accurate Old Testament still extant but, the Talmudic Jews do not want it promoted or even discussed…and neither do the Fundamentalists and Evangelicals…the so called, “Christian Zionists” This is the Septuagint or the LXX…Now Why do the Jews and others berate it? Because it is far more accurate as a translation since it was translated from the “OLD” or ancient Hebrew of the existing scrolls and tests still yet available in 285 B.C. when it was compiled…Translated Into the then common Greek language…koine Greek, still in used today….
The Talmudic Masoretes had this LXX available to use, and did so, but in their cleverness and intent to scrub from it the instances wherein the Jews are condemned for what they have done over the centuiries, the Masoretes omitted much of the Septuagint, changed verses, added vowels to the new Hebrew..(Old Hebrew did not use vowels) and in effect gave the Pope an edited copy of the original Old Testament.. Which is in use today….
As to the Megila and this so called Persian plot noted as being the Jewish ceremony of Purim, note that the Book of Esther, from which this “tale” of the Jews and Esther is taken, the same book in the Septuagint is much longer, makes reference to God in at least 6 instances, and in effect, is far different than what the current Old Testament’s now in use today present..The Masoretes recreated this book to accommodate their secular views and promoted it as an example of their success in overcoming an internal problem…only they killed thousands…It is hardly a book suited to a Christian Outlook on what the Christian Bible would promote…

PM hands Obama a Megila: Persian plot against Jews
“Then too, they wanted to wipe us out,” Netanyahu tells the US president after giving him a gift of the Scroll of Esther.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu handed US President Barack Obama a gift on Monday that spoke volumes about Israel’s tensions with Iran – an ancient Hebrew tome about a Persian plot to annihilate Jews, otherwise known as the Scroll of Esther.
The Scroll, or the Megila, tells a tale of palace intrigue featuring a Jewish beauty, Queen Esther, who charms a Persian king into foiling an evil adviser’s genocidal plans for her people some 2,500 years ago.
“Then too, they wanted to wipe us out,” Netanyahu told Obama, according to an Israeli official.
Jews around the world will gather in synagogues on Wednesday to read the Megila, on the eve of the Jewish holiday of Purim, a celebration of salvation and of turning the tables on one’s foes.
“And the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and with slaughter and destruction, and did what they would unto them that hated them,” one of the verses says.
Netanyahu, who has called Iran’s nuclear program a threat to the Jewish state’s existence, made a point of telling reporters after his White House meeting with the president that he had given the Megila to Obama.
The Israeli leader, in a frosty meeting with Obama last May, lectured the president on Jewish history and criticized his approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Netanyahu has also invoked the lessons of the Nazi Holocaust, in which six million Jews were killed, in citing the dangers he says a nuclear-armed Iran – the modern-day Persia – would pose.
Obama appealed to Netanyahu at their White House meeting to give economic sanctions time to work, amid concern that Israel, widely believed to be the Middle East’s only nuclear power, could strike Iranian atomic sites.
Iran says it is enriching uranium for peaceful purposes.
