DECLARED IRAQ WAR ON JEWISH FEAST OF PURIM - WAS THIS A
Why Did Pres. Bush Declare War On Eve Of
Jewish Purim Holiday?
Pres. Bush went on national TV on Monday,
March 14, at 8pm, to give Saddam Hussein, "48 hours to get out of town!"
(This is an old Wild West cowboy term Bush favors.)
In reality, it
was a declaration of war on Iraq. It is very interesting that March 14 was
the "Eve of Purim". At that hour Jews throughout the nation met in their
Synagogues to celebrate the defeat of Haman in Biblical times. Haman ruled
over Persia, (Iraq-Iran of today). Saddam Hussein has been called by the
Jews as "the Haman of today."
The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports
that shouts of joy went up in the Synagogues throughout the nation as word
of Bush's war speech reached them.
James Besser in the article here
clearly states that; "The Haman that we see today is in the form of
Iraq Was The Enemy Of Israel - Not America
Military experts have stated pubicly that Saddam Hussein and Iraq were
in no way, shape or form, any kind of threat to America. However, Saddam
has long been considered by the Jews as their enemy. When Bush made his
speech of March 14, he stated that the defeat of Saddam would reduce the
threat of terror to Israel.
Here lies the answer as to
why we went to war against Iraq. Saddam Hussein gave over $35
million to the parents, wives and children of Palestinians who have died
fighting to liberate their country from the brutal Jewish
Was it just a mere coincidence that George Bush
declared war on Purim??? We say NO - because there are 364 other days of
the year he could easily have chosen. Even the hour of his declaration
coincided with the Jews' Eve of Purim celebrations in the
Bush remembers the close vote in Florida in which the Jews
voted 90 % for Gore/Lieberman. He wants the Jewish bloc vote in 2004 and
believes that the war will gain their favor!.
The Jews consider the Book of Esther as the most important in the Old
Testament. It depicts the Jews conniving to bring about the downfall of
Haman. He is hanged along with his seven sons and 70,000

Photos of Jewish Purim celebrations are difficult
to find. This 1988 photo shows Rabbi Ivan Mauer hanging in effigy, Yasser
Arafat and the late Syrian Pres. Assad. Can you imagine any Christian
ceremony hanging people?

(NOTE: 1988 article - Saddam Hussein was named "Haman".)
Purim Party: The director of United Nations affairs for B'nai B'rith,
Harris Schoenberg, is naming Saddam Hussein the 15th annual Haman of
the Year. Mr. Schoenberg said Saddam beat out such figures as
Timothy McVeigh, Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, Algerian terrorists and Muhi
al-Din Sharif, "the new mad bomber of Hamas." (Saddam also got the
distinction in 1990).
Purim Explained - From "Jewish
The Ten Sons Of Haman
QUESTION: 1) Why the ten sons
of Haman hung with their father on the same gallows?
2) The listing
of the ten names of the sons of Haman has three Hebrew letters. What does
A Reader ANSWER: The Yalkut Me'Am Loez (pg. 183) states: Haman's
ten sons led the Hamanite attack and were therefore among the first to be
killed. While the other dead were allowed to remain at the site where
they were killed, Haman's sons were removed so they could be hung
up as an example (to those who murder and who oppose the
Esther appealed to the king, "I request that Haman's sons
be hanged upon the same gallows on which Haman was hanged. You
yourself left his body hanging, and now it would be fitting to hang his
sons next to him" (Megillat Setarim).

Why The Book Of Esther Is Favored
Testament "Book of Esther" is the favorite of the Jews. Esther turns King
Ahasueros against Haman who is arrested. Haman is said to be an enemy of
the Jews and is therefore hanged along with his 10 sons. Also, 70,000 of
Haman's followers are rounded up and killed. The Jews calibrate this mass
slaughter each year during their feast of Purim.
Orthodox Jews choose an "enemy" and declare him to be a Haman. During
Purim, Jewish children make "Haman cookies" and gleefully break off the
arms, legs and then gobble them down. The adults will make effigies of a
present-day "Haman" and hang him during the festival.
