Are these the same jews who view religion with God and the Devil without women at their sides and wondering why they fight eternally?

No Jews "wonders" why he fights, ya ignoramus. They fight for the restoration of the Temple.
And this fight is not looking be going to take forever. It's sort of sped up for them since they took control of their old land.

Inconvenience of inconveniences is that the muslims have built their own temple right on the foundation of the destroyed Jewish temple. I don't think they ever figured the Jews would make it back.

The fight isn't eternal, but the lols are infinite. And Palestine crocodile tears can will replenish the Jordan River.


I think he meant "why God and the Devil fight", not "why the jews [sic] fight".

I recently saw multiple documentaries come by on my YouTube feed that argue that the Temple was not where that mosque is now, but a small yet significant distance from there.

I see. But isn't Satan gods wife? ("adversary")

I recently saw multiple documentaries come by on my YouTube feed that argue that the Temple was not where that mosque is now, but a small yet significant distance from there.

Well, it could certainly be reasonable to let the Mosque intact, occupying a small but significant space on the Temple Mount, of which the Western Wall is one side. The rest of the mounts floor could host a Jewish temple and a Christian church, like an Abrahamic "Akropolis" of sorts.

For regimes to let this happen without getting all upset about it would make a powerful point on behalf of Islam, that it is indeed a religion of peace. Also of learning: many muslim at this stage seem to be unaware that Jerusalem was a Jewish city long before Islam even existed.

In our age there is nothing higher than the friendship of a philosopher. This is akin to what in more primitive days of the west was the vision of God face to face.

So I mean the friendship between philosophers.

The "vision of god face to face" represents the awakening to the Principe of self-valuing. As I call it. It represents the illumination that tears away all cowardice before truth. (Yes, one can compare this cowardice to cowardice before woman, but not equate it)

A friendship between philosophers requires two such brave perspectives. What can come about from such a friendship, I mean come about in terms of power, is limitless. But of course it can be quite modest as well. In any case it can not be banal or mundane - whatever comes from it is "godly", i.e. pure and sovereign.

Amen.
"The dissolution of the self means a complete identity with the Infinite and therefore with nothing partial. No event can trouble the individual who has perceived this Reality, for there can be no anxiety or fear of death if there is no one there to die, so to speak. The identification with any partial, component thing has been transcended and therefore any occurrence to these things does not disturb the Hermit. It represents equanimity of the mind raised to the highest possible degree." (https://iao131.com/tag/crossing-the-abyss/)

Fuck them college girls like Stafford loans

You need to not give a shit a little more
Tomorrow's not here and yesterday's gone
It's half past fuck it with the caps lock on
