The True Jew

Essential Background:

If you can not get your head around the FACT that the Church, The Jewish Remnant, The Tribulation Saints, and the Old Testament Saints are ISRAEL, then you need to really study the KING JAMES BIBLE for yourself and not listen to REPROBATES like Andy Woods and the literally thousands of other false teachers. Start here Homework Assignment: Read Genesis Chapter 17 carefully and then read and compare Romans Chapter 4 and Galatians Chapter 4. Focus specifically on Genesis 17:7 and Romans 4:16. The land of Israel in future prophecy is for the TRUE ISRAEL and National Israel today is only the Prestage gathering to bring "UNREPENTENT - STIFF NECKED ISRAEL" into the Time of Jacob's Trouble - Daniel's 70th Week - The Tribulation. After the true Jewish Remnant comes out (only 1/3 ZECHARIAH 13:9) , they will join the Church, The Tribulation Saints, and the Old Testament Saints at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb Revelation 19 and REIGN WITH JESUS CHRIST in the Millennial Kingdom. The current state of National Israel are only the caretakers of this land acting as tenant caretakers - husbandmen (READ MATTHEW 21 Husbandmen Parable) tending land before the true ISRAEL inhabits our land.

Just because a so called Jew claims the inheritance by DNA through their mother, this does NOT mean anything, but what counts is IF a jew or gentile is CIRCUMSIZED IN their heart. Romans 2:29
“But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”

Comment from one of my YouTube Subscribers:

Brother sadly this is not what people think but is in fact a Zionist trap being set up ever so slowly. This type of thing, which is starting to be reported more and more, is done with the goal of fueling the Messianic Judaism movement who have another Jesus, whom they call Yeshua, and then because the Christians are so eager to see Jewish people saved, and have become so leavened with false doctrine, they allow "messianics" to teach them online or in churches, who then change their concept of Jesus to be Judaized and also change the name of Jesus to Yeshua. They then bring in the leaven, but the Christians are so mesmerized, they fail to notice. This is in my opinion and according to my research all being orchestrated by Chabad Lubbavitch which is the viper's den of the last days tasked to bring their Moshiach. They planned all this carefully and a part of it is changing the true Christ into "Rabbi Yeshua" . As you yourself say in another video, they do not become Christians. Their aim is not to receive our Jesus, they will just use Kabbalistic sophistry for a while to acknowledge our Christian heritage, and then proceed to disinherit us by placing churches fully back under the Law of Moses through their endless Judaizing. What their secret Kabbalistix text tell the top sages is that they are to "swallow up" Christianity, like Moses' staff swallowed the magicians of Egypt's staff (they see Christianity as being like Egypt, evil). This means they will use "magic" to deceive the Christians to become part of them. That "magic" is the bewitchment Paul warned about in Galatians 3, the process of Judaizing. I cannot tell you how horrific it is, I pray our LORD will help you understand this evil plot.

Romans 10:1

“Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.”

King James Version (KJV)

Quote from Preface Dr. Shlomo Sand PhD Anthropologist, Historian Israeli 

This book was originally written in Hebrew, my mother tongue is actually Yiddish. But Hebrew has remained the language of my imagination, probably of my dreams and certainly of my writing. I chose to publish the book in Israel, because initially my intended readers were Israelis, but those who see themselves as Jews and those who are defined as Arabs. My reason was simple enough. I live in Tel Aviv, where I teach history.

To understand the development you have to take a clear eyed look at Israel and forego any bias for or against. I live in a rather strange society at the closing chapter of the book shows to the annoyance of many book reviewers. Israel cannot be described as a democratic state, while it sees itself as the state of the Jewish people, rather than as a body representing all the citizens within its recognized boundaries, not including the occupied territories

The spirit of Israel's laws indicate that at the start of the 21st century, the state's objective is to serve Jews rather than Israelis, and to provide the best conditions for the supposed descendants of this ethnos rather than for all the citizens who live in it and speak its language. In fact, anyone born to a Jewish mother may have the best of both worlds, being free to live in London or New York confident that the State of Israel is theirs, even if they do not wish to live under its sovereignty. Get anyone who did not emerge from Jewish loins and who lives in Java or Nazareth will feel that the state in which they were born will never be theirs

*Note:  Sadly Dr. Sand is an Agnostic or Atheist, believing the Bible is nothing more than myth.  I use his work to show the hypocrisy of Zionist National Israel as "God's People" when in reality they, the G capital of the world etc. are NOT God's chosen since we know who God's chosen are - being ISRAEL.  See studies in notes below. 

Disclaimer:  I am not a believer in the false doctrine of Replacement Theology and I am not an Antisemite but rather am opposed to the false doctrine of Evangelical Christian Zionism. 

I strongly believe the Promise God gave to Abraham is a binding Eternal Covenant and the REAL ISRAEL - The NEW JERUSALEM (1,500 cubic miles centered in current Jerusalem will be a reality to ISRAEL in the Millennial Kingdom. 

Genesis 12, 15, 17, Exodus 23. King James Bible.

In a nutshell, all the current state of Israel the small strip of land - not a fraction of what God promised to Abraham and his descendants actually belongs to ISRAEL. NOT The APOSTATE ZIONIST State of Israel. The real Israel is NOT the Israel as the Evangelical Zionists, false teachers were taught to believe by their Zionist handlers and influencers like Joel Rosenberg, Joel Richardson, Amir Tsarfati, Jacob Prasch, Michael Brown, Mike Evans, and many other Zionist and Messianic Jews continually pour leaven into doctrine.  

See study notes below:

During these last moments of this age - specifically in view of the expanding crisis of the Israeli - Palestinian War - we are faced with forcing ourselves to examine Judah known as JEW and Jerusalem, this cup of trembling. 

Zechariah 12:2

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.”

King James Version (KJV)

The True Jew - of Judah - Hebrew - Israel are those IN JESUS CHRIST - The Saints.  SAVED PEOPLE.  

See extensive studies in NOTES below.

These comprise every saved person of every RACE of any NATIONALITY, IN THIS WORLD from Adam to the last person born of human.  Taking into account the final Millennial period in which humans in unglorified bodies inhabit the earth for 1,000 years following the Tribulation. Reference: Isaiah Chapter 65 and Revelation 20. 

At the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, The Church, Bride of Christ, along with the Tribulation Saints, The Jewish Remnant, and the Old Testament Saints will be united with Christ and return with him in Revelation 19 to rule and reign with him 1,000 years and on to the eternal state.

Revelation 2:9

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

King James Version (KJV)

Revelation 3:9

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

King James Version (KJV)

See Notes below explaining Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 

Take time in your Bible study to thoroughly understand John Chapter 8, specifically verses 39 through 59 King James Bible.

Understanding the meaning of the word JEW:  

Oxford English Dictionary page 1507 Corresponds to HEBREW (see Book of Hebrews and understanding what the word Hebrew truly means:  PILGRIM, SOJOUNER, on the other side of the River). JUDAH (Note: author's note: Jesus Christ is of the Tribe of Judah, the Lion of Judah). The Patriarch name of Judah. The tribe descended from Judah. A person of the Hebrew race. A Hebrew of the Kingdom of Judah as opposed to those of the 10 tribes of Israel LATER *** Note my notes from an excerpt from Shlomo Sand's: "The invention of the Jewish people."  ANY Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation before the exile almost always connected to their religion.

Isaiah 45:14

“Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.”

King James Version (KJV)

Revelation 2:9  Those who say they are JEWS but are NOT regarding the Chruch at Smyrna - Smyrna the 2nd Century Church - The Church Ages - The 2nd age, Smyrna

The Smyrna church age was from AD 170 when bishops took over the churches to AD 312 when Emperor Constantine stopped persecuting the church.

Smyrna comes from the word myrrh, which means bitterness and death.

This was a very uncertain and unstable age with many assassinations, as about 80 men declared themselves to be Roman emperor in some part of the empire or in Rome during this interval of 142 years.

In the 23 years from AD 247 to AD 270 thirty men proclaimed themselves as emperors. In the year AD 238 seven self-proclaimed emperors were killed. This totally unstable situation regarding the succession of emperors paralyzed the Roman Empire’s defense system, which also undermined the economy. The costly civil wars as ambitious men fought to kill the existing emperors and replace them, drained soldiers away from the frontiers leaving them open to invasion by ferocious German barbarians, and the increasingly powerful Persians.

The Roman empire had a leadership crisis which reflected the growing leadership crisis of the church.  Each of the early churches that were established by the apostles had to be run by a group of elders, according to the permanent pattern and principles of the New Testament that needed no modifications or additions to meet the changing circumstances of the ages. The Scriptures were for their unchanging guidance, as Jesus made Himself the centre of each church.

That is why Jesus is seen in the midst of the candlesticks.

THE FAKE JEWS of the Church of Smyrna WERE the JUDIZERS. Those Paul and the Apostles contended so strongly against. 

Revelation 3:9 Those who say they are JEWS but are NOT regarding the Church at Philadelphia - Philadelphia the Church of Today - The Body of Christ, The Bride of Christ. The True Church - The Saints.

THE FAKE JEWS of the Church of Philadelphia ARE the JUDIZERS. These are National Israel and the Zionists The Atheists, Agnostic, Jesus - Christian hating "who knows what race they are from Khazarian, to Arab, to Russian, To ??? Paul and the Apostles contended so strongly against.  Time to read and study the book of Galatians  GRACE. The Church. OH FOOLISH GALATIANS WHO HATH BEWITHCED YOU? 3:1 KJB.

Galatians 3:28

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

King James Version (KJV)

 Galatians 2:11 and Titus 1:11-13 KJB

11 in the bible equals DIVISION - DISORDER - JUDGMENT

Galatians 2:11

“But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.”

King James Version (KJV)

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

1 Corinthians 2:2

“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

What Christians aren't taught about Zionism:

by reallygraceful

*Note Simply Grace mocks God's covenant with Abraham which I strongly rebuke.  Otherwise her precise notes on Zionism is not AntiSemitism is very good. 

What about the Orthodox Jews and their persecution by the Zionists?  Are they the TRUE JEWS?

No, however, some of them perhaps will be the  1/3 of those who escape the AC slaughter of the MID TRIB.   

Read Notes:  Romans 9, Zechariah 13:9 Hosea 10:1,  

Note, we know that some of the National Israelis may also be some of those of the 1/3 .  Obviously we do not know. But what we do know is that on a global scale, A REMNANT OF  Jewish believers who practice Judaism and love the God of Abraham will come to know Jesus Christ during the 2 WITNESSES and the 144,000 Jewish Virgin male evangelism during the Time of Jacob's trouble.

1 Corinthians 2:15

King James Version

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. You have marked (I'm sure you understand the meaning in accordance with Romans 16:17 KJV - Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

This Jew profoundly would be considered a "true Jew" obviously standing opposed to Zionism. 
HOWEVER, He is in a state of blindness and having denied the true MESSIAH.   He in this current state is indicted by Revelation 3:9 KJB. 

Please study my Blog links on Judaism VS Zionism and how the true AntiSemites are the Zionists.

I would think many of the Orthodox Jews may indeed find their Messiah as the chosen Jewish Remnant and when they see whom they have pierced they will wail because of him.  But how many of them is the question we can not answer. On the other hand it may be said that they are so hard core in their belief that they will gladly take the mark and follow the FALSE - ANOTHER MESSIAH - THE FALSE MESSIAH THE ANTICHRIST.


Revelation 1:7

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”

King James Version (KJV)

The Little Flock Comes to the Church

The invention of the Jewish people by Shlomo Sand introduction, page three. Quote:

Bernardo Bernardo was born in Barcelona, Catalonia in 1924. years later he would be called Dov. Barnardos mother, like Shulek's mother was a religious woman her entire life, although she attended a church, rather than a synagogue. His father, however, had early on a banded any intensive preoccupation with the soul and like many other metal workers, and rebellious Barcelona, became an anarchist. At the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, anarcho-syndicalist cooperatives supported the young leftist Republic and for a while actually ruled Barcelona. But the right wing Francoist forces soon reached the city and young Bernado fought alongside his father and the final retreat from its streets. Barnardos conscription into Franco's military a few years after the end of the Civil War, did not soften his feelings about the new regime as an armed soldier in 1944. He deserted to the Pyrenees where he helped other opponents of the regime crossed the border. Meanwhile, he waited eagerly for the American forces to arrive and bring down the cruel ally of Mussolini and Hitler. to his dismay, the Democratic liberators did not even try. Bernardo had no choice but to cross the border himself and become a stateless person. He worked as a miner in France then stowed away on a ship in hope of reaching Mexico, but he was caught in New York and sent back to Europe in shackles. Thus in 1948, he too, was in Marseille, working in one of the shipyards. One evening in May, he met a group of enthusiastic young men in the dockside cafe. The young metalworker, still dreaming of the human beauty of Barcelona's revolutionary cooperatives, became convinced that the kibbutz on the new state in the new state of Israel was their natural successor. Without the slightest connection to Judaism or Zionism. He boarded an immigrant ship, arrived in Haifa, and was prominently sent to the battlefront in the valley of Latran. Many of his companions fell during combat, but he survived and immediately joined a kibbutz just as he had dreamed of doing that spring day in Marseille. He then met the woman of his life, along with several other couples, they were married by a rabbi and a speedy ritual. In those days the rabbi's were still happy to provide the service and asked no superfluous questions. The Ministry of the Interior, soon discovered that a serious error had been made. Bernardo now known as Dov was not a Jew. Although the marriage was not annuled,  Dov was summoned to a formal meeting to clarify his true identity and the government office to which he was directed set an official wearing a large black skullcap at the time, the religious Zionist party, Mizrahi, which ran the Ministry of the Interior was cautious and hesitant. It was not yet insistent about national territories or the political call, identity exclusion, or the politics of identity exclusion. The exchange between the two men went more or less as follows. You are not a Jew, sir, said the official. I never said I was replied Dov. We shall have to change your registration. The official said casually, no problem Dov agreed. Go right ahead. What is your nationality? Israeli? Dov suggested? There is no such thing stated the official. Why? Because there is no Israeli national identity the ministry official said with a sigh. Where were you born in Barcelona? Then we'll have to write nationality Spanish.  But I'm not Spanish. I'm a Catalan and I refuse to be categorized as Spanish. That's what my father and I fought about in the 1930s. The official scratched his head. He knew no history, but he did respect people. So we'll put nationality Catalan. Very good, said Duv. Thus, Israel became the first country in the world to officially recognize the Catalan nationality. Now, sir, what is your religion? I'm a secular atheist. I can't write atheists the State of Israel does not recognize such a category. What is your mother's religion? The last time I saw her, she was still a Catholic. Then I shall write Christian. The official said relieved but Dov normally a calm man was growing impatient. I won't carry an identity card that says I'm a Christian. It's not only opposed to my principles, it offends the memory of my father who was an anarchist and set fire to churches in the Civil War. The official scratched his head some more weighed the options and found a solution. Dov left the ministry office with a blue identity card that declared both his nationality and his religion to be Catalan over the years. Dove took pains not to let his national or and or religious identity adversely affect his daughters. He knew that Israeli school teachers often referred to us as Jews, despite the fact that some of their pupils are pupils parents might not be among that group. Since Dov was anti religious and his wife was opposed to his being circumcised him being circumcised, conversion to Judaism was not on the cards. At some point he searched for some imaginary link to the  forced converts of Spain. But when his daughters grew up and assured him that his being a non Jew did not trouble them, he abandon the search. Fortunately for him, the graveyards of kibbutzism did not bury Gentiles outside the fence or in Christian cemeteries as other Israeli communities do. Dove therefore is buried in the same plot of land as the other members of the kibbutz. His identity card, however, has disappeared. Though he could hardly have taken it with him on his final journey. In due time, the two immigrants should look and Bernardo shared Israeli granddaughters. Their father was a friend of two men whose stories begin here. 

The second story of two native friends.

Mohammed one put both or Mohammed one both protagonists of the story are named Mohammed was born in Jaffa in 1945. In the 1950s, there were some Arab neighbors. There were still some Arab neighborhoods whose inhabitants had not fled to Gaza during the fighting and were permitted to go on living in their native city. This Mohamed grew up in the impoverished alleys of the city, which were almost entirely settled by Jewish immigrants. Unlike the population in the Sheeran plane, and the Galilee, the Palestinians of Jaffa had been left depleted and orphaned to few of the city original inhabitants remained to carry forward in independent culture. And the immigrant society refused to become involved or integrated with them. One outlet from the small, narrow, ghetto of Arab Jaffa was the Israeli Communist Party. Young Muhammad joined its youth movement in which he met Israelis his own age. The movement also enabled him to learn Hebrew well and to travel in and become familiar with a Rhett's Israel which was still quite small. Moreover, the movement took him beyond the scanty education he had received at Arab school. And like Schulich, Poland, he studied Engels and Lenin and tried to read communist writers from around the world, his friends, his friend, youth guides liked him and he was always willing to help his comrades Muhammad befriended in Israeli boy a year younger than he was. They shared an outlook and Mohammed helped his friend cope with the intense challenging street life of Jaffa. His physical strength made the younger lad feel safe while the ladders sharp tongue sometimes served Mohammed well. They grew very close. They told each other their deepest secrets the friend learned that Mohammed dreamed of being called Moshe and being accepted as one of the boys. Some evenings as they wandered about the streets. Mohammed introduced himself as Moshe and succeeded in convincing the peddlers and shopkeepers of his Jewishness, but he could not maintain the other identity for long and always reverted to Muhammad, nor did His pride allow him to turn his back on his family. One advantage Mohammed enjoyed as an Arab was exemption from the military service his friend, however, received a conscription notice, which threatened to separate them. One weekend in 1964. They set on Jaffa's beautiful beach and speculated about the future, fantasizing freely, they resolved that as soon as Mahatma, as soon as Muhammad's friend completed his military service, they would travel the world and perhaps if they were lucky, would not have to come back to Israel. To submit this fateful resolution they carefully cut their palms and pressed them together and like a pair of silly little boys swore to make a great journey together. Mohamed waited for the younger man to complete his national service. It lasted for more than two and a half years, but the friend came back changed in love emotionally shackled. Confused, though he remained, and though he remembered their pact, he became hesitant. Tel Aviv vibrancy attracted him, it's abundant temptations were too great to resist Maha Mudra waited patiently we finally had to admit that his friend was very attached to the excitement of Israel lightness, and would not be able to break away from it. So Mohammed gave up, saved his money and left and he crossed Europe slowly, putting Israel further and farther and farther behind him until he reached Stockholm. Despite Sweden's unfamiliar cold and blinding white snow, he tried hard to adapt. He began working for an elevator company and became an expert installer. But during the long northern winters, he still dreamed of Java. When he wanted to marry, he returned to the place that had once been his homeland. But history had decided when he was three would not be there and would not be his. He found a suitable woman took her back to Sweden and raised a family with her there. Somehow the Palestinian from Java became a Scandinavian, and his children grew up speaking Swedish. They taught their mother their native tongue long ago, Mohammed STOP WISHING his name was Moshe the other Mohammed was born in 1941 in a small village, now long extinct near ocher. In 1948, he became a refugee when his family fled the fighting to Lebanon, and his birthplace was erased. A thriving Jewish village rose on his ruins one moonless night, a year later, after the war, Mohammed and his family quickly crossed back across the border and made their way to the house of relatives in the village of Giardia in Galilee. In this way, Muhammad came to be included among those for those many years were classified as present absentees, refugees, who remained in their country of birth, but had lost their land and possessions. The second Mohammed was a dreamy, gifted child who used to amuse who used to amaze his teachers and friends with his eloquence and imagination. Like the first Muhammad, he joined the Communist Party and soon became famous within its ranks as a journalist and as a poet. He moved to Haifa, which was then the biggest mixed Jewish Arab city in Israel. When he met the young Israeli men and women, and his poetry attracted a growing public, his bald poem, identity card written in 1964. Excited an entire generation of you young Arabs, both to an official of the Israel Israeli Ministry of the Interior record. I am an Arab and my identity card number is 50,000. I have eight children, and the ninth is coming after the summer. Will you be angry? Israel compelled its indigenous non Jewish citizens to carry an identity card, in which their nationality was listed either as Israeli nor Palestinian. They were forced to carry an identity card in which their nationality was listed neither as Israeli nor Palestinian, but as Arab. Paradoxically, it thus became one of the very few countries in the world that recognize not only Catalan but Arab nationalities. Early on the poet foresaw that a growing number of non Jewish residents in Israel would begin to worry the authorities and politicians, Mohammed was soon labeled seditious in the 1960s. Israel still feared poets more than the Shaheeds the marchers. He was repeatedly detained. Since sentenced to house arrest, and in quiet periods forbidden to leave Haifa without a police permit. He suffered the persecution and restrictions with a stoical rather than a poetical, sangfroid and took comfort in the friends who made the pilgrimage to his flat in heifers Wadi naissance neighborhood. Among his distant associates, was a Young Communist from Jaffa. This comrade knew no Arabic, but Mohammed has poems and Hebrew translation fired his imagination. And tempted him to try his hand at writing. Once discharged from the army, he would traveled to Haifa from time to time to visit the poet. Their talk not only strengthen his faith in his struggle but was also useful deterrent against writing pure real verse. At the end of 1967, the young man again visited Haifa, while taking part in the conquest of East Jerusalem. He had to show and he had to shoot at the enemy and intermediate terrified intermediate, terrified inhabitants. Israelis were intoxicated with victory. Arabs were sick with humiliation. Muhammad's young friend felt bad and smelled bad with the stink of war. He longed to abandon everything and leave the country but he also wanted to find out but he also wanted a final meeting with the poet he admired during the fighting in the holy city. Muhammad was manacled and taken to prison. through the streets of Haifa. The soldier saw him after his release, they passed a sleepless drunken night immersed in the fumes of alcohol beside windows made them by cigarette smoke. The poet tried to persuade his young admirer to remain in resist, rather than flee to alien cities and abandon their common homeland. The soldier poured out his despair, his revulsion with the general air of Trumpfunnelism is alienated from the soil in which he shed innocent blood at the end of the night, he vomited his guts out at midday the poet woke with a translation of a poem he had written at first light, a soldier's dreaming of white lilies, understanding as he told me that home is drinking his mother's coffee and coming back safely at evening, I asked him and the land and he said I don't know it. In 1968, a Palestinian poem about an Israeli soldier capable of feeling remorse for his violence and having lost his head in battle. And feeling guilty about taking part in the conquest of the land of others who was perceived by the Arab world as betrayal. Surely such Israeli soldiers did not exist. The Haifa poet was roundly chastised, even accused of cultural collaboration with the Zionist enemy, but this did not last. His prestige continued to grow and soon became a symbol of the proud resistance of the Palestinians in Israel. Eventually, the soldier left the country but the poet had left before him. He could no longer bear being suffocated by the police subjected to continual persecution and harassment. The Israeli authorities quickly abrogated his questionable citizenship. They never forgot that the cheeky poet was the was first Arab in Israel to issue his own identity card with when he wasn't supposed to have an identity at all. The poet traveling from the Twin capitol to another, his fame growing all the while. Finally during the referral Oslo initiative thought he was allowed to return and settle in Ramallah went on the West Bank, but he was forbidden to enter Israel. Only when a fellow writer died did the security authorities relent and allow Mohammed to set his eyes on the scenes of his childhood? If only for a few hours, and he did not carry explosives He was subsequently permitted to enter a few more times. The soldier meanwhile, spent many years in Paris strolling its beautiful streets and studying. Finally, he weakened despite the alienation he was overcome by a longing for the city in which he had grown up so he returned to the painful place of his identity where his identity was forged. his homeland, claiming to be the state of the Jewish people, received him willingly and for the rebellious poet, who had been born on its soil and the old friend who had dreamed of being mosaic. The state was too narrow to include them. 

Next, the two non Jewish students named Gisele after her grandmother, she was born and brought up in Paris. She was lively, impetuous, she was a lively, impetuous girl, whose first response was always no, yet despite the stubborn no or perhaps because of it. She was an excellent student, though barely tolerated by her teachers. Her parents indulged her in every way, even when she suddenly decided to study the holy tongue. They had hoped that she would be a scientist, but she made up her mind to live in Israel. She studied philosophy at the soul burn it sore bone and learned Yiddish and Hebrew at the same time, Yiddish she chose because it was a language spoken by her grandmother, whom she never knew. And Hebrew because she wanted it to be the language of her future children.

Her father had been imprisoned in the camps owing mainly to the help of German fellow prisoners. He was saved and thus was fortunate enough to return to Paris after the war. His mother Gisa, who had taken who was taken with him in the summer of 1942, was sent directly from Darcy to Auschwitz. She did not survive. He joined the French Socialist Party and they're met his future wife they had two daughters, one of whom was named Gisel. By the time she was in the secondary school Gisele had, was already a wild anarchist, associating with the remnants of the legendary groups of May 68. When she turned 17, she abruptly announced she was a Zionist. At the time, there was not many books in French about the fate of the French Jews during the Nazi occupation. And Giselle had to be content with general writings about the period which she had read avidly. She knew that many of those who survived the death camps had gone to Israel, but that her grandmother Gisela had perished. Gisele sought out Jewish women who resembled her and prepared to undertake ALIYAH and in the winter of 1976, she took an intensive Hebrew course given by the Jewish Agency in the heart of Paris. Her teacher was an irritable, sensitive Israeli, she annoyed him with her questions and did not hesitate to correct him on tricky verb declinations. Although her critical remarks displeased him, she intrigued him and he did not strike back. She was the best student in the class and he could not help but respect her before the end of the year, however, she saw us suddenly stopped attending the course. The Hebrew teacher wondered if he had unwittingly offended her during one of the disputes, disputes in class A few weeks later, as the course was coming to an end she suddenly turned up hardier than ever but with a touch of melancholy in her eyes, she informed him that she had decided to stop studying Hebrew. She so had been to the Jewish Agency to arrange her travel to Israel. There was it was there she was told that she could not study at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and could not receive the usual immigrant benefits, but that she would be considered Jewish, but that she would not be considered Jewish unless she converted. Gisele who always insisted she was a Jew and was proud of her typically Jewish surname had known that her mother despite her wholehearted identification with her husband, was a Gentile. She also knew that the Jewish religion the child's religious identity, is derived from the mother's, but she had considered this only a minor bureaucratic detail. Being young and impatient, and also convinced that the history of her father's family provided sufficient grounds for herself identification. She had expected these matters to be easily resolved, and permanently in French she had asked the Jewish agency official if he was a believer, no he replied. Then she asked him how a non religious person who regarded himself as a Jew, could advise another non religious person who regarded herself as a Jew to convert in order to join the Jewish people and their country. The representative of the Jewish people replied dryly that this only was the law. And that this was the law adding that in Israel her father would not have been able to marry her mother is only religious marriage where marriage only a religious marriage was allowed. Suddenly, Giselle understood that she was so to speak a national bastard, though she thought herself as a Jew, and since becoming a Zionist, was also seen by others. As a Jew. She was, she was not enough of a Jew to satisfy the State of Israel. She saw refuse to consider conversion. She would not bear clerics of any persuasion and having heard about the embarrassment of hypocrisy involved in the conversion to Orthodox Judaism, she recoiled in disgusts. There were still traces of radical anarchism in her personality and she promptly eliminated Israel from her list of desirable destinations. She decided not to migrate to the state of the Jewish people and give up learning Hebrew. Having conducted her final talk with her Israeli teacher in French, she ended it by saying and strongly accented Hebrew. Thanks for everything so long and perhaps goodbye. The teacher thought he could discern a yiddish in notation in her voice she had after all learn Yiddish. He never heard from her again. years later, he came across her name in a respected Paris newspaper. She'd written an article about Israelis about Israel's conduct in the occupied territories. beneath her name, it was noted that she was a psycho analyst. No doubt many Jew. No doubt, many French Jews immediately classified her as a self hating Jew. While the anti Semites probably thought hers was a typically Jewish profession. 

The other student whose name was Larissa was born in 1984 in a small town of Siberia. Soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. Her parents migrated to Israel, where they were set up to a so called development of the upper Galilee. There, Larissa was brought up amid a balance of immigrant and Israeli children and appeared to integrate well, but began to speak Hebrew, like a Sabra and was content with herself in her daily life in in Israel. Sometimes she was so upset when a Russian when called a Russian and tease her because her golden hair, but that was how local youngsters treated newly arrived children and the year 2000 At the age of 16, she went to the Ministry of the Interior to obtain her first identity card. She was received cordially by a woman clerk and given an application form to complete. When it came to the question of nationality, she asked naively, if she could write Jewish, the clerk looked through the information she already entered and explain, apologetically that she could not she would be in the same category as her mother and thus bear the taunting title Russian. Later she would say at the moment, she felt the same pain as when she began to menstruate something that occurs in nature and can never be gotten got rid of. Larissa was not the only girl in town who bought this mark of Cain. At school, they even formed a sorority of non Jewish girls. They shielded each other and tried to smudge the nationality information on their identity cards to make it illegible. But it didn't work and they had to continue to carry the incriminating document at 17 they all hasten to get their driver's license, as that did not detail nationality and could substitute for an identity card. Then came the schools Roots trip to the death camps in Poland. A problem arose to obtain a passport Larissa had to bring her identity card to school. Fear that the entire class will discover her secret as well as her parents. Limited means made her forego the trip. So she did not get to see Auschwitz, which was gradually been replaced with Masada is a site fomenting a formative memory in modern Jewish identity. She was however conscripted into the national military service, and although she tried to use her Russian nationality to avoid the draft, even writing a long letter to the recruiting office, about it, her request was turned down. Military service actually did Laura some good fumbling for the Bible. During the swearing in ceremony, she trembled and even shed tears for a moment she forgot the little crush she had received from her maternal grandmother upon leaving Russia as a little girl, once in uniform, she felt she belonged and was convinced that from now on she would be taken for an Israeli in every way. She turned her back on the detested faltering Russian culture of her parents, choosing to date only Sabras and avoid Russian men. Nothing pleased her more than to be told she did not look Russian despite the suspicious color of her hair. She even considered converting to Judaism and deed she went so far as to seek out the military rabbi, but then desisted at the last moment. Though her mother was not devout, Larissa did not want to abandon her to an isolated identity. After her military service, Larissa moved to Tel Aviv fitting into the lively carefree city was easy. She had now a new feeling that the nationality details on her identity card was insignificant, and that her persistent sense of inferiority was merely a subjective invention. Yet sometimes at night when she was in the love of someone, a worrying, nagged at her. What Jewish mother would want non Jewish grandchildren from a Gentile daughter in law, a six. She began to study history at the University she felt wonderful there and like to spend time in her student cafeteria, in the student cafeteria. In her third year she signed up for a course called nations and nationalism in the modern age, having heard that the lecture was not too strict, and that the work was not too difficult. Later, she realized that something else too, had attracted her curiosity. During the first class the teacher asked if any students in the room were registered as something other than Jewish by the Ministry of the Interior. Not a hand was raised. She feared that the lecturer would stare at her, but he only looked slightly disappointed and said nothing about the course appealed to her though the lessons were something boring and sometimes boring. And the professor tended to repeat himself, she began to understand the unique nature of Israeli identity politics, unwrapping situations she had experienced while growing up, she saw them in a new light. She understood that in her mind, it was not in her lineage. She was in fact one of the last Jews in the State of Israel. Later in the semester obliged to choose a subject for a term paper. She quickly approached the professor, do you remember the question you asked in the first class? What do you mean? You ask if any student present was not classified as Jewish? I should have raised my hand but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Then she added with a smile, you might say. I once again failed to come out of the closet. Well, then he said, write a term paper about what made you pretend maybe it will spur me to start writing a book about a confused nation, pretending to be a wandering people race. Her paper received a high mark. It was the final push that broke the barrier of anxiety and mental struggle. By now you may have guessed that Larissa's history teacher in Tel Aviv was also Gisele's Hebrew teacher and rainy Paris. In his youth, he was a friend of Muhammad the elevator installer as well as Muhammad who became the Palestinians national poet. He was the son in law Bernardo de Barcelona Antichrist in the son of Schulich, the Lod Communist, he was also the author of the present troublesome book, written among other reasons, so that he can try to understand the general historical logic that might underlie these personal stories of identity.
