Metabunk 6/27 (?)

Ironically there are factions/tribes within his nation that have a supremacist and globalist mentality, at least to the same extent as the Twelvers or factions in Iran do.  So what's the big difference between Israel having nuclear weapons and a "Sampson Option" and so forth and the Iranians/Persians?  Other than Zionism and the fact that the Bible includes a story of a deception* in which a lot of Persians were killed and so forth.  Or other than the fact that people in Israel know how to treat women better and so forth?  What's the real, relevant difference?

It seems to me that the difference is a form of geopolitics that itself traces back to an American/militaristic/fascist ideology of pure power and control, "full spectrum dominance" over the entire world.  And that's the extent of it.

*Netanyahu may say that 911 was great for Israel and Israelis may celebrate what happened on 911 but it actually seems unlikely to me that they could pull off everything that went on under the baleful eyes of the Statue of Liberty/Lucifer/Apollo that fateful day.  What if 911 caused America to turn on them?  Then it wouldn't be worth celebrating, would it?  Of course, I look at the symbolism of things and most people don't.  So I'm probably the only one imagining that Jewish people should probably watch out for "scapegoating" by the real ruling class, along with the rest of us.  Because once a more global tribe forms and they decide that someone needs to be scapegoated.  Well.

If prominent Jews would stop saying that 911 was basically the best thing that happened to them and/or celebrating it in some way, that might be helpful.  Seriously.  Shrug.  People never learn.
In the Bible, the scapegoat was a goat that was designated (Hebrew לַעֲזָאזֵֽל ) la-aza'zeyl to be outcast in the desert as part of the ceremonies of the Day of Atonement, that began during the Exodus with the original Tabernacle and continued through the times of the temples in Jerusalem.
In psychology and sociology, the practice of selecting someone as a scapegoat has led to the concept of scapegoating.  .... 
"And Aaron shall cast lots over the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other lot for Azazel."1
Footnote [1] 16:8 The meaning of Azazel is uncertain. ESV
Alternatively, broadly contemporary with the Septuagint, the pseudepigrapical Book of Enoch may preserve Azazel as the name of a fallen angel[5] and from the Targums onwards the term azazel was also seen by some rabbinical commentators as the name of a Hebrew demon, fallen angel, or pagan deity.  --Wikipedia
 When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.  Bible
It's all always symbolic, except when it isn't.
