Well, it's Purim time again, when Jews celebrate the day their ancestors supposedly killed 75,000 Persians in a preemptive strike because the Persians supposedly planned to kill the Jews. (DIU: The Esther Killings.)
The story is found in the Book of Esther, which Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, recently gave to President Obama as a Purim gift. Since ancient Persia is modern Iran, the message behind the gift is clear enough: let's do it again.
I hope that President Obama takes the time to read the Book of Esther, if he hasn't already. It's a silly, disgusting story that every Jew (and Christian) should be ashamed of, rather than celebrate -- or, worse yet, imitate.
There is no hope for peace in the world as long its leaders are inspired by the Bible and the Quran.
