Who was more insane ? The Zaddikim Zealots - for mesa riding (long way to haul supplies);
or the Roman's - for building the ramp (same for them)?

"The Communists of the early Revolution, who, like their Capitalist counterparts had their roots in pragmatic materialism, were also noted for initiating a sustained and vigorous assault upon religion and spirituality.

Anatolii Lunacharskii, Commissar for Enlightenment, had founded a movement known as 'God-building'.

This new concept "sought to replace traditional religion with human solidarity, with mankind itself as the object of worship." - Troy Southgate

Zaddikite War on Human Nature
morphs into a War on Nature

931 BC   King Solomon dies and the United Monarchy splits into two parts - the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah.

722   Hezekiah, according to the Mishnah, was the son of Ahaz, the 13th King of Judah.

Hezekiah enacts sweeping religious reform after witnessing the destruction of the northern kingdom of Israel by Assyrians led by Sargon.

These include a strict mandate for the sole worship of Yahweh and a prohibition on venerating other deities within Solomon's Temple.

Hezekiah purifies and repairs Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, purges it of idols, reforms the priesthood and centralizes the worship of Yahweh.

"The key phenomenon - which cannot be explained solely against the background of economic prosperity - was the sudden growth of the population of Jerusalem in particular, and of Judah in general." - Archaeologist Israel Finkelstein

Archaeologist Amihai Mazar explains, "Jerusalem was a virtual city-state where the majority of the state's population was concentrated."

The reign of Hezekiah saw a notable increase in the power of the Judean state as there was a large influx of Israelites fleeing from the Assyrian destruction of the northern state of Israel.

715 BC King Hezekiah of Judah, backed by Nubian Empire, revolted against King Sennacherib of Assyria.

Sennacherib sacked many Hebrew villages, but failed in his attempt to take Jerusalem.

There is no description of how the siege ended, but the annals record a list of booty sent from Jerusalem to Nineveh.

Hezekiah remained on his throne as a vassal ruler.

Hezekiah's capitualtion informed the later suicide at Massada by his last remaining psychopathic Zaddikim followers.

597 BC King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon captures Jersalem and installs Zedekiah.

Zedekiah revolts against Babylon, and entered into an alliance with Pharaoh Hophra, the king of Egypt.

589 BC King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylonia lays siege to Jerusalem.

587 BC Jerusalem falls and Solomon's Temple is destroyed.

Talented craftsmen and the educated are taken into captivity to Babylon.

Legend claims Jerusalem is razed to the ground.

516 BC The Second Temple is constructed by Jewish exile groups returning to Jerusalem from Babylon under the Achaemenid Zerubbabel.

"The period of the Second Temple was the most creative epoch in all Jewish history.

The five centuries from the end of the Babylonian Exile to the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in the year 70 of the present era saw the development of almost every basic institution and the founding of the entire literary tradition upon which Jewish life ran for the next two thousand years.

The Synagogue, the world’s first religious institution:

the first regular system of adult education, based on the public reading and interpretation of the Law;

the first of the translations of the Bible that made the Hebrew Scriptures a religious classic for the world;

the Sadducees, the source of Jewish sectarianism;

the Essenes who inspired Christianity;

and the Pharisees, the creators of post-Biblical Judaism;

and development of the Oral Law which expanded into the Talmudic culture that fills the Jewish mind up to the present day.

In the Second Temple period, the Great Sanhedrin met in the Hall of Hewn Stones in the Temple in Jerusalem.

The court convened every day except festivals and Shabbat.

Hasmonean Resurrection

167 to 160 BC The Maccabean Revolt is led by Simon Maccabeus against the Seleucid Empire and the Hellenistic influence on Hebrew life.

The revolt was in response to Antiochus IV, decree to 'rent in pieces' and burn Hebrew 'books of the law' found in Jerusalem in 168 BC.

Simon Maccabeus was the leader of a Hebrew rebel army, the Maccabees, that took control of Judah, which at the time had been a province of the Seleucid Empire.

The Maccabees found the Hasmonean dynasty.

The Hasmonean dynasty asserts their version of the Hebrew religion, largely through forced conversion with the help of a high priest sect, the Sadducees, to expand the boundaries of Judah by religious conquest in the vain attempt to reduce the influence of the Therapeutae and Essenes.

Jerusalem Dig Uncovers Ancient Greek Citadel

When the Romans replaced the Seleucids as the great power in the region, they granted the Hasmonean king, Hyrcanus II, limited authority under the Roman governor of Damascus.

The Hasmoneans are hostile to the Romans, and the following years they witnessed frequent insurrections.

A last attempt to restore the former glory of the Hasmonean dynasty was made by Mattathias Antigonus, whose defeat and death brought Hasmonean rule to an end, and Judah became a province of the Roman Empire.

37 BC Herod, a son-in-law of Hyrcanus II, is appointed King of Judah by the Romans.

Granted unlimited autonomy in the country's internal affairs, he became one of the most powerful monarchs in the eastern part of the Roman Empire.

A great admirer of Greco-Roman culture, Herod became "Great" when he launched a massive infrastructure construction program, which included the cities of Caesarea and Sebaste, the port at Caesarea Maritima, and the fortresses at Herodium and Masada.

Who Was King Herod? Israel: The Land and its People

Herod's most ambitious project was the expansion of the Second Temple in Jerusalem making it into one of the most magnificent buildings of its time.

Herod's rebuilding of the Second Temple in Jerusalem was done so that he would "have a capital city worthy of his prestige and grandeur."

4 BC Near death Herod has a change of mind about the succession.

According to the final version of his will, Antipas' elder brother Archelaus was now to become King of Judah, Idumea and Samaria, while Antipas would rule Galilee and Perea with the lesser title of tetrarch.

After Herod's death Judah came under direct Roman administration.

6 AD Archelaus is deemed incompetent by Augustus and replaced with a prefect.

Antipas goes on to govern Galilee and Perea for forty-two years.

These territories are separated by the region of the Decapolis, with Galilee to the north and Perea to the south.

Threats to political stability are ongoing when Antipas takes office.

While Antipas is making his case to Augustus in Rome, dissidents led by Judas son of Hezekiah (Ezekias, in the Septuagint) attacks the palace of Sepphoris in Galilee, seizing weapons with which they terrorize locals.

In a counterattack ordered by Quinctilius Varus, Roman governor of Syria, Sepphoris was destroyed by fire and its inhabitants sold off as slaves.

Herod Antipater or Antipas built Tiberias, modeled on a Greek city, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee with baths, a stadium, a royal palace and a sanctuary for prayer.

Antipas also rebuilt and fortified Sepphoris, while adding a wall to Betharamphtha in Perea.

An ancient route linking Sepphoris to Legio, and further south to Samaria-Sebastia, was paved by the Romans at this time.

At the time of Jesus of Nazareth, Sepphoris was a large settlement.

Reza Aslan describes the period of time of Jesus's growing into maturity:

"Rich, cosmopolitan, deeply influenced by Greek culture, and surrounded by a panoply of races and religions, the Hebrews of Sepphoris were the product of the Herodian social revolution - the nouveaux riche who rose to prominence after Herod's massacre of the heirs of the Hasmonean dynasty and their priestly aristocracy.

Jesus, while living in Nazareth, worked as a craftsman at Sepphoris, where, during his youth 'the largest restoration project' of his time took place."

63 BC During the Roman occupation of Jerusalem the Pharisees of the Temple (Kohanim), became increasingly corrupt and were seen by the Hebrew people as collaborators with the Romans, whose mismanagement led to riots, revolts and general resentment at widespread austerity.

An inner circle of the Sadducees, the surviving high priests of the Hasmonean dynasty, continued to develop the Mystery of the Zaddikim while fueling the resentment of the Zealots, who become their shock troops.

66 AD Growing anger against increased Roman suppression of Hebrew life resulting in sporadic violence escalates into a full-scale revolt.

The Roman governor, Gessius Florus, respondes by plundering the Temple, claiming the money is for the Emperor.

The next day he launches a raid on the city, arresting numerous senior Hebrew merchants.

This prompts a wider, large-scale rebellion and the Roman military garrison of Judaea is quickly overrun by the Zealots, while the pro-Roman king Agrippa II, together with Roman officials, flee Jerusalem.

Confrontation between the Sadducee Jerusalemites and the mainly Zealot factions of the Northern Revolt under the command of Yohanan ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba, erupts into bloody violence.

When the Idumeans enter Jerusalem fighting on the side of the Zealots they kill the former High Priest, Ananus ben Ananus - the man who ordered the execution by stoning of James the brother of Jesus.

Simon Bar Giora, commanding 15,000 troops, is then invited into Jerusalem by the remaining Sadducee leaders to stand against the Zealots, and quickly takes control over much of the city.

69 Bitter infighting continues between the factions of Simon Bar Giora and Yohanan ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba.

Judaea Capta: The First Roman-Jewish War

70 Superior Roman forces led by Titus besiege Jerusalem.

The first two walls of Jerusalem are breached within three weeks, but a stubborn rebel standoff prevents the Roman Army from breaking the third and thickest wall.

Following a brutal seven-month siege, during which Zealot infighting results in burning of the entire food supplies of the city, the Romans finally succeed in breaching the defenses of the weakened Hebrew forces.

The Second Temple is destroyed and Jerusalem is razed to the ground.


The Sicarii, a splinter group of Zealots, act as assassins, saboteurs and commanders of the Zealot shock troops for the Sadducees.

The leader of the Sicarii, Menahem, is murdered by rival factions during an altercation; but promises to return in physical form to his people before the end of the 2nd fall of mankind right before his passing from this life.

Saul of Tarsus is born of wealthy Hebrew parents engaged in trade in the first decade of the common era at Tarsus in Cilicia.

Tarsus - a junction point of land and sea routes connecting the Cilician plain (today called Çukurova), central Anatolia and the Mediterranean sea - has long been an important stop for traders and a focal point of many civilizations for the past 6000 years, much like Yemen.

There is no indication in Saul's writings that he received rabbinical training.

Hellenistic literature, the Book of Wisdom (Sirach) and other Apocrypha were the sources for his eschatological and theological system.

Saul of Tarsus chose the Jesus the Tannaim as the model to provide the fulfillment of the promise of return by the leader of the Sicarii, Menahem, as his model for Chrestus.

The spiritual leader of the Zaddikim, Menahem modeled on the scripture of Melchizedek, is the one who raises Christ.

The Hebrew word Zaddikim, defined as "the most perfect righteous Ones" (ZAD-dee-KEEM: etymology, Hebrew word Tzaddik = "righteous"), were a splinter cult of ultra-radical Hellenized Hebrews whose beliefs and practices are recorded in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The last remnants of the Sicarii and the Zaddikim were defeated at the last Hasmonean dynasty outpost at Masada in 73 AD.

The inner circle of the Hasmonean dynasty high priests were Zaddikim.

A manuscript with six chapters of Sirach was found at Masada.

Survivors of the cult of the Zaddikim following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD fled to Masada, the fortress hide away built by Herod on a mountain plateau near the Dead Sea.

Masada is 35 miles from Jerusalem.

The Superman Syndrome

73 AD As the Romans engineer and build a ramp to invade the plateau the Zaddikim of the Dead Sea become suicidal.

The Zaddikim, children of the Sadducee high priesthood, make their last stand at Masada.

"Since we long ago resolved never to be servants to the Romans, nor to any other than to God Himself, Who alone is the true and just Lord of Mankind, the time is now come that obliges us to make that resolution true in practice.

We were the very first that revolted, and we are the last that fight against them; and I cannot but esteem it as a favor that God has granted us, that it is still in our power to die bravely, and in a state of freedom." - Elazar ben Yair, leader of the Zaddikim

After this oration, the last remnants of the Hasmonean dynasty, the Zaddikim men, kill their wives, their children, and then each other.

For over 1750 hundred years the tale of Masada is a forgotten episode.

358 ADThe Last Great Sanhedrin, an assembly of seventy-one rabbis appointed to sit as tribunal in the ancient Land of Israel, is held.

The Nasi, functioned as head, while the Av Beit Din was second to the Nasi along with sixty-nine general members.

The last universally binding decision of the Great Sanhedrin was to abandon the Hebrew Calendar.

1926 Isaac Lamdan pens "Masada," a poetic history of the anguished Jewish fight against a world full of enemies.

According to Professor David Roskies, Lamdan's poem, "more than any other text, inspired the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto."

"The Diasporia of Exile was needed in order to construct a long-range memory in which an exiled nation race was posited as the direct continuation of 'people of the Bible' that preceded it." - Professor Shlomo Sand

1953 Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Moshe Dayan, initiates the practice of holding the swearing-in ceremony of Israeli Armoured Corps soldiers who had completed their Tironut (IDF basic training), on top of Masada.

The ceremony ended with the declaration: "Masada shall not fall again."

The soldiers climb the Snake Path at night and are sworn in with torches lite.

2007 A new museum opens at Masada in which archeological findings are displayed in a theatrical setting.

The Zaddikite impulse lives on in the refounding of the Hasmonean dynasty as the state of Israel with a new title for their reminiscent ideology, Zionism.

The psychopathic beliefs of the Zaddikim infect humanity globally with a suicidal mania demanding unattainable perfection disguised as political-religious beliefs and perverted into a War on Nature.

"Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we observe - whether we are Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists - we follow the Talmud. It is our common law." - Herman Wouk

Conscription exists in Israel for all Israeli citizens over the age of 18 who are Jewish, Druze, or Circassian.

Palestinians are not conscripted.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
