Jerusalem, A Biography by Simon Montefiore, Knopf; Amazon.com
by Tom Valentine
This exhaustive history of the most religious, Godless city on earth would best be titled: “History of oxymoronism.”
One who calls himself a Christian Soldier, Crusader or Zionist wipes everything “Christian” out of his title with the second word, hence an “oxymoron.”
Every bastion of both Christianity and Islam has gone mad in this ancient City of God. The followers of the prophets of peace have behaved like craven maniacs while whoring, warring and torturing over trivia in Jerusalem’s ruins.
This biography of the city, well-researched and well written, albeit with an obvious bias that actually illustrates the foundation for all the madness—manipulative leavening from Pharisees.
It’s a fascinating way to learn history, but only if the reader is reasonably well-grounded in actual history, religious history, geopolitical chicanery (inelegantly called “conspiracy theory”). Then, perhaps the reader of this informative book will come away with far greater appreciation and understandings of human behavior and historic manipulations than ever before.
Both peoples, of the book, always open greetings and prayer meetings with calls for “peace be with you,” yet politically and socially there is no peace—no sanity. The important teachings of Christ and Mohammed are ignored.
Catholics, both Eastern and Roman have piously killed each other for an upper hand at “pilgrim” tourist trade in Jerusalem—Greeks have forever fought Armenians over division of the Virgins tomb; Franciscan monks and Eastern Orthodox have killed one another in vicious battles in the “Holy Sepulcher during Easter Sunday celebrations [especially when the dates of this key remembrance happened to coincide on a Sunday. Is it any wonder that politics and policy in America, New Jerusalem according to early colonizing settlers. is so insane?.
They are all nuts! Every religion features the phrase “peace be with you.” But it rings hollow as hypocrisy abounds and the saved, born again’s spit in their Savior’s eye, calling for murder and mayhem in His name. I just learned, from this book, that the oxymoron term Christian Zionist is not a new insanity, but is an ancient stupidity.
Jerusalem is the center of the “siren’s song”, calling to all narciscisstic; delusional, egomaniacal nutcases the world over. It’s so bad the world of official shrinkology has named the phenomenon “Jerusalem syndrome.” It has been featured in “The British Journal of Psychiatry in 2000.” Which defined the sickness as:
“A psychotic decompensation related to religious excitement induced by proximity to the holy places of Jerusalem.”
And there is, like diabetes, a type 2 of the syndrome: ”Those who come with magical ideas of Jerusalem’s healing powers; (such as the Russian writer Gogol.)”
For the anti-religionists, who may wish to gloat over this “scientific” information, I point out that the same underlayment of Pharisee leaven generated the questionable techniques of “psychobabble” thanks to Sigmund Freud a Talmudist of the first order.
Montefiore who is closely related to the great City of London scion Moses Montifiore, and therefore claims much insider information regarding modern Israel, does not elaborate on the Talmudists in this ponderously documented tomb, nor does he give any credence to the “Khazar conversions, ”which are so much a part of Bolshevism, the Russian revolution and the money-controlling new world order.
Instead we learn that Russian orthodox were even more fundamentally oxymoronic than Americans and we may be surprised to learn about the strong role played by Kaiser Wilhelm in getting Theodore Herzl’s Zionism started in Ottoman Jerusalem.
(The chapter heading: The Kaiser and Herzl; Last Crusader and First Zionist.)
Enjoy this book with a jaundiced eye—it has snake oil to sell—but absorb the color, archeology, architecture and foibles of the wild personalities that helped bring our world to the end times horseshit.
Herzl, the pusher of modern Zionism is quoted on one of the chapter-heading frontispieces: “Oh Jerusalem: the one man who has been present all this while, the lovable dreamer of Galilee, has done nothing but increase the hate.”
That quote is said to be taken from Herzl’s Diary, and it is stunning to come from a man who was steeped in Talmudic hatred for Jesus. Herzl, for all the damage his movement has caused, was a sincere and thoughtful man whose ideas would create an apartheid state, which he would have loathed.

Below, another video tells apartheid story needing to be told. Is this Jerusalem Syndrome?
I just heard that war mongering Republican oxymorons booed the Golden Rule—What a country!
