What Is George Reading?


George W. Bush reads the Bible daily. His followers in the White House have regular BS (Bible Study) sessions. But what exactly are George and his followers reading when they crack open their holy Bibles? And how could what they read in their holy book influence the lives of the rest of us who are directly affected by their decisions and superstitions?

Recent polls indicate the primary concern of Americans is the so-called 'War on Terror.' When George and his faith-based buddies read what they consider to be the word of God, they are influenced by what they read. Their actions in world affairs, a key part of which is the war on terror, are accordingly influenced by the scribblings of the ancient Jews who are the actual authors of the Bible, even though George is convinced God wrote it. Since the ancient Jews wrote the Bible to promote themselves and their people over everyone else on the planet, the Bible's influence on the simple-minded George and the Bushies can only result in the advancement of Israel at a great cost to America and the rest of the world.

After giving themselves the coveted title of 'God's chosen people' by writing that God said they and their people are 'above all people that are upon the face of the earth' (Deuteronomy 7:6), the Jewish Bible writers built their book of lies that is now know as Holy Scripture and dear to the hearts of George and the rest of the politicians who are slaves to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

After believing by faith, for there is no other way a reasonable person could believe Deuteronomy 7:6, that the Jews are God's chosen people, George must have wondered how he and America should interact with these special people. Reading on in his holy scripture, he would stumble upon Deuteronomy 7:16 which reads, 'And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them.' George would also be impressed by Deuteronomy 7:2, which is similar to Deuteronomy 7:16 (which proves the consistency of the word of God) when the God of the Bible tells the Jews how to deal with their neighbors, to 'smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shall make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them.' George can now see Sharon is right in his cold-hearted dealings with Israel's neighbors today, the Palestinians. When Israel slaughters Palestinians today, they are only obeying God's sacred word!

Seeing that God's chosen people are Biblically correct in their brutal treatment of their neighbors, George knows he's right to annually send Israel billions of dollars worth of deadly military weaponry (all at US tax payers' expense) to help them fulfill God's word and commands. In fact, George probably feels a sense of Biblical bliss by using America, and the lives of now over 1,000 young Americans, to secure and expand the Jewish state. Reading in Isaiah 60:10, George takes comfort knowing he is following the word of God by attacking and destroying Israel's neighbors like Iraq. He will soon to be able to show his love for God and the self-proclaimed chosen people of God by waging war on Iran and Syria. In Isaiah, he learns that God said through the Jewish prophet to the Jewish people, 'And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee.' 'Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.'

In his own ignorant and superstitious way, George believes by putting Israel before America, he's actually helping America. You have to be a true believer to see and accept it, but Isaiah 60:12 plainly states, 'For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.' Not wanting America to be destroyed, in George's simple little mind, we must be servants of Israel or our destruction is certain. The Jewish writers of the Bible were masters at psychological warfare!

Strongly believing what he reads in the Bible, George also knows the anti-Jewish/anti-God forces are going to wage one last bloody battle against God's self-proclaimed chosen people and against the Christians. The battle of Armageddon will result in the triumph of the Bible believers over the forces of evil. This is predicted in the Bible's book of Revelations, or the Apocalypse.

Since Revelations is in the Bible, George 'reasons' it must be true. The superstition-based mind George possesses, and that AIPAC is so grateful for, doesn't see Revelations for what it is. Thomas Jefferson, George is not. Jefferson wrote, regarding Revelations, 'I consider it as merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy, nor capable of explanation than the incoherence of our own nightly dreams.' (Thomas Jefferson In His Own Words, page 360)

The gravity of the Biblically influenced bad decisions Washington policy makers are making is costing America and the world dearly. The 9/11 attacks are, predominately, in response to decades of America's deadly favoritism it has shown, and continues to show, to Israel. As pointed out in the important eye-opening book Imperial Hubris, 'The question is whether US interests require Americans to be Israel's protectors and endure the endless blood-and-treasure costs of that role. Status quo US policy toward Israel will result in unending war with Islam.'

If Americans can shake the superstition of the Bible, they will see we are morally wrong to arm Israel with the latest high-tech weaponry, and we're stupid to wonder how these actions on our part would create enemies of the people those weapons are used against.
