Despite the truly horrifying nature of the theme covered in Mel Gibson's 2006 blockbuster film Apocalypto: namely the manner by which innocent, defenseless people are hunted down, captured and later used as human sacrifices in appeasing the Mayan god Kukulkan.
Nevertheless what made the film's bloody theme and presentation sufferable was the (mistaken) notion that it was a thing of the past and not of the present…
The problem with this assessment of course is that it's as disconnected from reality as the notion that the earth is flat or that babies arrive from heaven via some delivery service known as Stork Express.
Despite not being recognized as such per se,
nevertheless human sacrifice is alive and well, kicking and screaming in
fact - no pun intended - moreso now than at any other time in human history.
Now - as then - it involves primitive peoples - barely-humanoid in many respects - who've worked out a business arrangement with some bad-tempered deity whereby ripping to pieces innocent people results in rivers of good fortune flowing in their direction, again, no pun intended…
In short time, as the affair becomes
ritualistic, ceremonialized and then institutionalized, it gains 'official'
status when priests, prophets and princes participate, at which point the
gory business of Murder, Inc becomes as much a national pastime as feeding
people to lions was to ancient Rome.
Rather, it was an open, public event, the
beating heart of the metropolis in fact, complete with gawkers, watchers,
onlookers and 'true believers' who cheered madly as hearts were cut out and
heads chopped off.
Instead of barely-clad, bone-in-nose, unwashed
warriors running barefoot through the jungle chasing some terrified 2-legged
creature scheduled to be the main course at a dinner honoring the Mayan god Kukulkan, we have technicians dressed in the respectable clothing of
military uniforms, sitting behind computer screens, lattes in one hand while
in the other is a joystick attached to a drone that is flown into 3rd-world
locales where women and children endure not just having their hearts cut
out, but their entire bodies ripped to shreds via high-yield explosive
More personal than just business, when it comes to the trappings, teachings and traditions of Judaism, blood is as intrinsic to its identity as bread and wine are within some Christian ceremonies.
It is, after all, that 'old time religion' that
functions as the beating heart of the Jewish state and which sustains and
maintains who it is, what it is, what it does, and how it lives.
Human sacrifice, i.e. murdering innocent human
beings in order to appease the demands of some 'higher' power, is a theme
introduced within literally the first chapters of the very first book of the
Jewish Torah - the book of Genesis to be exact - where a penniless nomad
named Abraham - the 'Founding Father' of the Jewish state as the world has
been told time and again - has got it in his head to slit the throat of his
own son Isaac and burn his young son's body on a pile of stones in pleasing
and appeasing the
Jewish god Yahweh.
Whether it is for atonement of sins, giving thanks or whatever the mood of the occasion happens to be at that moment, the slaughter of living creatures becomes THE method of connecting with and 'getting right' with 'the god of Israel' (a term publically used many times by Jewish terrorists ranging from Menachem Begin to Netanyahu) as explained numerous times in the books of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Numbers and others found in the Torah.
Specifically, as the ritual dictates, by laying hands on the head of the animal to be killed, the sins of the people of Israel are transferred onto the animal, and upon its brutal slaughter, the sins are wiped away and Yahweh is appeased, to wit:
Paired almost simultaneously with the ritualistic practice of animal slaughter as the centerpiece of Judaic worship come the various decrees from Yahweh's mouth to Israel's ear that he - the angry, jealous, vengeful god who has chosen this small, seemingly insignificant tribe of ne'er do wells to someday run the world - is no longer satiated with only the slaughter of defenseless animals.
Now, having developed a more 'sophisticated' sacrificial appetite, he demands that defenseless men, women and children must suffer the same fate as well, specifically as laid out within several passages of the Jewish Torah to wit:
And there begins a wedding made in hell, where
ritualistic, religiously-driven animal slaughter is paired with war,
genocide, invasion and conquest.
As Israel sinks deeper and deeper into her Judaism and her 'Jewishness', and the more powerful that the Jewish community becomes, therefore the more 'comfortable' certain political and religious leaders become in voicing ideas that before had to be kept hidden from the Gentile world for the sake of 'operational security'.
Of the various statements made in recent history, few compare in revealing this mindset than that made by Israel's former Chief Sephardic Rabbi Ovadiah Yusef who stated to wit:
The reaction on the part of the more 'cautious' elements within organized Jewish circles, from the ADL to World Jewish Congress et al was predictable in its utter duplicity, and unfortunately, swallowed whole hog by the Gentile community.
One by one, powerful Jewish groups and those who lead them lined up to denounce the Rabbi's statement despite knowing full well that it reflected the essence of Judaism and that it forms the foundation of Zionist thinking not only in Israel, but around the world.
Sadly, the Gentiles, not yet comprehending the inherently
deceptive nature of Judaic linguistics and theatrics, believed it, much to
their own detriment.
Whereas the various statements attributed to individuals such as Ovadia
Yusef and others can be compared to the distant howling of wolves announcing
their impending arrival, it is the ensuing slaughter and carnage that best
reveals the nature of the beast within.
Operation 'Defensive Edge' - like all its previous massacres - Jenin, Cast Lead, etc, etc, etc, is the modern day equivalent of the very same ritual sacrifice institutionalized within the pages of the Torah and the same human sacrifice depicted within Apocalypto and for the same reasons - Israel, a nation whose foundation is rooted in religious strains that demand the blood of innocent, defenseless animals who cannot escape, the exact situation as pertains to the people of Gaza today.
It is their blood, the Palestinians of Gaza and
elsewhere - warm, wet, sticky - that acts as the glue holding together the
nation of mentally ill, religious, racist nutcases known as Israel.
And, as in Apocalypto, when the citizens of the Mayan superstate roared with approval as the beating heart of the victim was cut out and the head chopped off, so too do we hear the roar of Jewry worldwide as the innocent victims of Gaza are ceremonially murdered on the high altar of Judaic human sacrifice-
Israeli citizens gather at the border
with food, drinks and other celebratory supplies, snapping pics of the
carnage in celebrating Gentile slaughter and in worshipping the Judaic
version of the
Mayan god Kukulkan.
Let all hope and pray that the rest of the Gentile world - and particularly those with the military resources to do it - recognize that indeed this is what is in store for mankind if the beast depicted within both the storyline of Apocalypto (below video) and within the pages of the final book of the christian New Testament - The Apocalypse - is not destroyed, for if not, as Jesus Christ himself predicted, 'no flesh would survive':
