POSTERIORI, it must be stated for the record: Is there anyone with a semblance of knowledge in world history, let alone Biblical history, who hasn’t come across the following basic fact at hand: Jerusalem sprang from a Cannanite City to an Israelite City, and it is 3,000 years old! Besides, how many peoples can lay similar claim and title to their capitals? Zero. Zip. Zilch. Mind you, archaeologically-speaking, it couldn’t be clearer about Jerusalem’s centrality to the Jewish people. Understood?
SIMILARLY, for the record: Yours truly is hardly known for suffering fools lightly – that’s an understatement! So much so, being called a “hard-ass” has been known to happen….occasionally….whatever. Ipso facto, there is little more enraging than having to “school” those who should know better. Still yet, for manifold reasons (chiefly, political, ideological, and, yes, outright hatred of the Jewish people) they refuse to accept historical reality. Infuriating. Maddening.
