Not always so, especially when it comes to the philosophy of ancient Persian writers. These brilliant poets and authors reflected much in their writing on the human mind, its frailty and irrational behavior.
In world politics those living on the people’s bill in high places would do well to remember what is considered wise, and what is considered foolish behavior.
To illustrate my point, below is some ancient Persian (Iranian) wisdom from the book, A Mirror for Princes by Kai Kaus. The current occupant of the Spite house formerly known as The White House, (for those of us who remember the times when race baiting was not in vogue) would do well to remember some of this wisdom for the sake of Western ideals, and sound American politics.
Above all, it should be remembered for the day of inevitable reckoning to come, perhaps in a very near future, when Neville Chamberlain’s policy practiced by Barack O and “humble highboy” Kerry will show the inedible fruits of their treacherous minds to the citizens of the Western world.
The first two paragraphs above are very clear “current occupant” lies ad continuum, and I know that I do not have to explain to you the myriad of topics on which he lies. The very last paragraph appears to me to be the most valuable one. It refers to history the way I see it.
Could it be that the Persian writer Kai Kaus quoted above, had heard or read of the Biblical story of David and Goliath? Did Kaus give the following advice to his son the Prince: DO NOT MESS WITH KING DAVID?
Apparently, Barack speaks Arabic and perhaps a bit of Farsi as well, he studied at a madras, is thought of as a “scholar” even though no one has seen his grades, and is a Nobel Peace “Pie” winner (in love all is allowed).
Time will tell if this” Prince of Wonderland”, living in the People’s House understands a bit of ancient philosophy and wisdom. He does have an Iranian born “peacock” named Valerie living close by who could translate the more delicate passages for him.
Ironically, it was the great Persian King Cyrus, fourteen Centuries before the writer Kai Kaus wrote his book, who had liberated the Jews from captivity in Babylonia, and allowed them to go back to their ancestral lands. King Cyrus provided them also with the funds to rebuild King Salomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.
On this once in a life time historic day, the Jews are celebrating Hanukkah, their Feast of Light, and most Americans are celebrating “Thanksgiving” on the same day.
A bit of preaching I believe is in order here: Perhaps Barack Obama should give more thanks to the uniqueness and greatness of America that has allowed him to become all that he can be, (which does not depend on political parties, but on character). A true unifier would not have policies executed by which American Veterans are chased away from their Monuments!
If he chooses not to be a unifier, but remains just another ordinary low brow (which I believe he is), then would he have the honor (which I doubt he has), to resign from the highest post in the land, instead of being impeached.
For all those mighty men and those elected to the people’s representatives’ posts you can only say the following:
There is truth to the ancient story of David and Goliath, ask the Syrians, Iraqis and Egyptians when in doubt.
For another historical coincidence, think about the following point: Very recently, the oldest American Puritan Book of Psalms was sold by a Boston Church at auction for the record sum of $ 14 million dollars.
Here are the words of the first Psalm as a reminder that you can sell “the word” but not the eternal meaning!
Blessed is the one, who does not walk in step with the wicked, or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. Not so the wicked!They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Jews, religious or secular, who are so very eager to espouse the “Democratic Party cause” of Barack’s Party, those self professed Christians and atheists who believe in nothing else but their “eternal self“, who do not speak out against treason and treachery, remind yourselves of those words.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah to all!
