In the Throes Of John Lennonís Hit Song
Jewish Press ^ | 8/23/'18 | Moshe Feiglin

Posted on 08/23/2018 8:02:43 AM PDT by Zionist Conspirator

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people sharing all the world You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

How did we go so quickly from southern Israel being burnt to Palestinian flags in Tel Aviv? From the red alerts in the south to the rainbow of the LGBT surrogacy protests in central Israel?

They are all connected. The key word for understanding all of this madness is “identity.” We are experiencing a war against all identity and all essence. It is a world war, but here in Israel it is the most extreme.

We are in a real war in which hundreds of civilians and soldiers have already been killed. One side is well-organized and well-funded. The other side is confused and doesn’t even understand why it is being attacked.

We left Gaza as part of the Oslo Accords, which, according to its architect (Ron Pundak) were designed to erase Israel’s Jewish identity. It was the tip of the iceberg of a broader war – a war against any type of national identity. Shimon Peres wrote about it explicitly in his book, The New Middle East (p. 73 in the Hebrew edition).

This explains how we have sacrificed 2,000 victims on the altar of “peace” and have reached a mentality in which it is no longer “us” vs. “them.” Instead, there are “those in uniform” and “those who are not in uniform” – from both sides. The uniformed people’s job is to die for those not in uniform – no matter what side the civilians are on (as per Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan).

Hundreds of soldiers have already been killed for the enemy. The last one to date is the Givati officer who was killed by a sniper’s bullet. Why? Because for them, any identity at all is a battleground. That explains the all-out battle against the Jewish State Law, which recognizes that Israel has a national identity.

But the war is not only against national identity. There really is no equality problem in Israel. If anybody here is discriminated against, it is the normative Jews. If you want to be accepted to med school in Israel or to receive land to build a home, you would be well-advised to convert to Islam. And if you want your voice to be heard, you would be well-advised to be a homosexual or a radical feminist. If you are just a regular Israeli, you are the last in the pecking order for attention and benefits.

So the next time you hear about a protest in Tel Aviv, or a march in Jerusalem to demand equality, please remember that it is really not about equality, at all. It is a war against identity – all identity.

A war against national identity (“Palestinians”). A war against family identity (radical feminism). A war against gender identity (LGBT). A war against human identity (eating meat is murder).

This is how the IDF has turned into an army bereft of identity, which has no enemy and thus can never defeat him, a la John Lennon’s song, “Imagine.” It is an army that is incapable of dealing with kites, that leaves southern Israel to burn, its citizens in bomb shelters, sacrifices the lives of its soldiers for this “enlightened” paganism and apologizes for accidentally killing two enemy snipers (not that it even has an enemy).

Yes, it is hard to wrap your head around the enormity of this monster. So just remember one thing: It is not about equality. Not about equality for the “Palestinians.” Not about equality for the “Arabs.” Not about equality for the Druze. Not about equality for women. Not about equality for the homosexuals. Even if some of the claims they make are justified, it is not about equality at all. It is a war against one thing: A war against identity.

This is the first article I've posted here in a long time. I think it's a good one.

I call this sick song, “The Communist Anthem”. I once described it to my SIL, who loves the song and its message, a “horror”.

I hope you weren't so lazy you didn't even bother to read the article and missed the fact that the author is writing against what that awful song stands for.

I think even John before he died disavowed himself from it.

Not Yoko, however.

Oh why couldn’t have Chapman have had one more bullet for Yoko?

John Lennon was actually a horrible person. Violent tendencies, heroin addict(he never quit), communist, homo, pro-abortion...he was rotten.

Did you read the article? It’s not about the song. It’s about the nihilism the song stands for.

And why do you think I said this?:

“Thanks for the reminder of how disgusting that song is”.

I don’t need you to tell me that, thank you.

As I am well aware. Evidently you didn't bother to read the article either.

I didn't give the article its unfortunate title. It's not about a song; it's about multicultural leftism, which the song represents.

And Yoko Ono remains a very nasty creature.

Can’t say I agree with the lyrics or Lennon but I like the melody. Always have.

I get that. But to use an awful song written by idiots who also wrote "Back in the USSR". Most people today don't even know who the Beatles were. I would have used a song that's a little more recent, if I was looking for an example.

No problem.

I saw it for it was when it came out.

Oh come on, “Back in the USSR” was a fun novelty song and a parody of the Beach Boys’ ‘California Girls’.

Obviously, Lennon “Imagined Lower Taxes” because he left England because of taxes.
