Pagan Atrocities and Scapegoats

To begin, our prayers go out for the victims of the vicious attacks and murders in Mumbai, particularly for the friends and family of Chabad-Lubavitch emissary Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka who were murdered by Muslim terrorists.

This makes sense of this, for starters.

But if you really want to understand the Scimitar and the darkening world around us, you will need to read these on what René Girard calls the "primitive sacred" and I simply call paganism (structurally speaking): Part I Part II Part III.

Jews are the Chosen People and the elder brothers of Christians. They have ever been and continue to be the prime scapegoats in our satanic cosmos (and Christians are becoming more so, by extension). May the Lord bless and keep us in his glory - Chabad.
