No doubt, if Jesus was living in Israel nowadays, those who call Gideon “a self-hating Jew” would also call Jesus a self-hating Jew. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Jesus said to his contemporaries: “Why don’t you understand my language?” although they were talking the same one. What is that language Jesus was speaking? How can a same language give two ways of speaking? The answer is in our brain: Most people speak the reptilian brain’s language which is a selfish, materialist and racist language using lies and cunning and words like “self-hating …”, “patriotism”, “right of blood”,… words of propaganda to justify there unfair behaviour. A few people speak the conscience’s language which only looks for truth and justice for all, according to God’s Law, independent of the blood, but only willing to stay in “haor”, the light and staying away from “hakhoshech”, the darkness. How could one know whether he/she is in the light or in the darkness? Like the dung helps the vegetable to grow, the light shines more in the deep darkness. The light is the consequence of the darkness. Can we see the stars during the day? The darker the night is, the brighter the stars shine. Gideon is a shining star in the darkness of the night. So, to know what “haor” (the light) really means, we first must understand what “hakhoshech” (the darkness) means and, therefore, we must dig for the roots. החשיך = to obscure, to darken ; החשה = to say nothing, not to mention, to keep secret ; החיש = to accelerate ; שך = thorn, to surround with a thorn-bush. According to the roots, “hakhoshech” (the darkness) means “to obscure” and “to obscure” is “to say nothing/not to mention/to keep secret accelerates the thorn-bush”. And the thorn-bush intends to damp the light. The thorn-bush is the pollution, the secrets, the lies that keep the world apart from real Peace. Knowing what “hakhoshech” is, and knowing that it is opposed to “haor”, we can understand that “the light” is when the secrets are revealed. That’s the only way to know what we are walking in and where we go to.
