Measure for Measure

The latest in drone technology is the Assad. It seems to be able to drone on forever without interruption and is guaranteed to bore victims into a slow death.

Listening to the Spock-eared tyrant addressing his oxymoronic 'Syrian Parliament' I can't miss the irony of this man blaming all the slaughter and insurrection on terrorism.  The same terrorism that he himself sponsored, funded and fomented as a willing and active partner with Iran and Libya in the Axis of Evil.

Scripture is replete with vengeance meted out by G-d on the basis of 'middah keneged middah' - or measure for measure. One early example was the Egyptian Pharaoh. He started out drowning Jewish newborns, and ended up being drowned with his entire army in the Red Sea.  

In the same way it seems that those who waged terror on the Jewish people have found themselves in the crosshairs of their own evil creation. 

Just marvel at the way our enemies are being removed one-by-one, without the House of Israel having to fire a single shot.  Saddam, Gadaffi, Mubarak, Bin Laden and now Assad. Sunnis and Shia keep blowing each other up on a daily basis. The Hamas of Gaza continue to fight Palestinians of Ramallah and throw their people off the roofs of high buildings.  Even Chavez is dying - slowly. 

All without any help from us.

As the good book also says: "Hashem will fight for you - you need only remain still" (Exodus 14:14).

I can't wait to see what happens to Ahmadinejad, for whom something really special must be in the heavenly works.

PS: I apologise for any offence to atheists leftists and nihilists and I of course respect their right to ascribe all of this to the big bang, evolution, intelligent design or the fascinating premise that the Arab spring was really caused by anthropological global warming.

PPS:  I would not normally bother to listen to an Assad speech - let alone watch anything else on BBC News - were it not for the fact that it is so hot here in Jerusalem, there's not much else to do indoors. Meanwhile London celebrates the Royal Jubilee in the traditional British way - 9 degrees and nonstop rain ... and it's June! Happy Jubilee Day.
