THIS IS NOT A PURIM SHPIEL . . .

THI IS NOT A  PU IM 
HPIEL


"The deep state is rotten and disloyal. And it’s launching a coup to put its own Labor man in power” and other Purim Chelm Goodies:

"If you think CNN’s Trumpmania is bad, the Israeli police and media have spent the better part of a decade trying to invent ridiculous Netanyahu scandals. How ridiculous?

"Labor’s deep state still runs much of Israel the way it did when Ben-Gurion was still alive. It doesn’t just have the media and academia, the non-profits and the elites, the way most national ‘lefts’ do. It also controls the old machinery of government that it spent generations running and robbing.

"Ben-Gurion’s tenancy may be a factoid to most, but it’s a sore insult to Labor. And its deep state is working overtime to force Netanyahu out of office using fake scandals, fake news and fake police.

"Israel has a first-world military and a third-world police. . .Its police force is Middle Eastern. At its best, it’s useless and at its worst, it’s deeply corrupt and abusive. The same holds true for the entire justice system which remains a fossilized remnant of its socialist past that deserves to be classed with those of Russia or Uzbekistan.

"In the United States, the inciting incident of the Flynn investigation appears to have been his advocacy on behalf of FBI Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz who had accused former boss Andrew McCabe and others of sexual discrimination. Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich used the campaign against the Prime Minister to accuse a female police officer who had complained about sexual harassment . . . .

"The leftist deep state isn’t interested in dealing with the real threat. It undermined Netanyahu’s efforts to take out Iran’s nuclear program.

"The deep state is rotten and disloyal. And it’s launching a coup to put its own Labor man in power."

In Keeping With The Times

Talmud Bavli Megillah 15a-15b [R. Papa said]: 
They also called him, The slave who is purchased for a loaf of bread.

Here is a Rabbinic story based on this line from the Talmud:

Once the king [Ahashverosh] issued money and dispatched it to the heads of armies in order to help the armies [leftist deef state] conquer the provinces [PM]. Haman took half of this money and spent it on himself, and when he needed it for the soldiers he did not have enough left. He approached Mordecai [Mashiach] because Haman knew that Mordechai had money. In fact, the money was in Mordechai's hand just as the king had issued it to him. Haman said to Mordecai: Lend me from this money which is in your hand.  Mordechai said to him: I will not lend it to you unless you sell yourself to me as a slave. Haman accepted this upon himself and they both agreed to the loan. Mordechai wrote in the contract, "Haman, the slave of Mordechai, sold himself for a loaf of bread". From this point onwards, Mordechai considered Haman to be his slave and even his property. Later, when Haman got promoted by the king and asked Mordecahai to bow down to him, Mordecahi refused because he still considered Haman to be his slave.
