I don’t get it

French President Nicholas Sarkozy’s son Jean — “the smooth-talking 21-year-old law student” — is engaged to be marrried to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the “heiress of a Jewish family that controls Darty, one of France’s largest consumer electronics chain”.

“Controversial columnist’s aside about Sarkozy’s son and a Jewish heiress reignites old embers”

…The young man, Siné wrote without a shred of evidence, was planning to convert to Judaism before marrying Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of a huge electronics chain. ‘He’ll go a long way in life, this lad!’ Siné commented.


For [Philippe Val, the editor of Charlie Hebdo] there was no doubt. Siné’s statements, he said last week, ‘could be interpreted as making a link between conversion to Judaism and social success’ and that they spread the old stereotype associating Jews and money.

    The magazine’s editor asked the veteran cartoonist, Siné to retract. He replied: “I would rather cut off my balls.”

    Of course!

    *slaps forehead*

    Then (the Archangel) Michael said to me, “The appointed time for the End of Days will occur during the reign of a ‘king’, ahem, who will be named HRMLT. There are some that say that TRMLO will be his name.” Rav Simai says HKShRT will be his name. Rav Elazar says Ahashverosh (Xerxes or Artaxerxes) will be his name. Rav Yehudah ben Betira says Koresh (Coresh or Co. Rice) will be his name. Rav Shimon bar Yochai says HaKhShaRO will be his name. The Halakhah (legal ruling) in this case follows Rav Shimon who said HaKhShaRO will be his name.

    First and foremost Eliyahu, the second greatest prophet of all time receives a message directly from Michael, the Heavenly Prince of Yisrael, and Second Century Rabbanim and Kabbalists argue with him! Don’t get me wrong! These are great Rabbanim, but no Tanna from the Second Century can argue with Eliyahu HaNavi! What is going on here! Secondly, Xerxes and Koresh are foreign Persian potentates, and by easy inference so is HaKhShaRO. Why would they usurp the reign of Armilus (TRMLO) the Wicked?

    There can be only one explanation. Rav Shimon Bar Yochai and his kabbalistic comrades davened. They knew that this TRMLO would be worse than an abomination. If allowed to reign until Mashiach ben David revealed himself, he would easily be the worst elected Prime Minister of any country in all of human history. He has to be stopped. Replace him with a foreign potentate, a Ahashverosh or even better a Koresh, or even better HaKhShaRO. A benevolent foreign potentate would be far better than nine final months of TRMLO. The first letter in the name is a Hey. It can mean “the”. The other four Hebrew letters can easily be unscrambled. By the way the final O is an Aleph. Taking the Khaf and putting it between the Resh and the Aleph gives us SaRKO, the well known nickname of Nicolas Sarkozy. Can he be that benevolent foreign potentate for whom the Rashbi prayed? Time will tell.

    Sometimes I think I give the greengrocers entirely the wrong idea with the comments I post here.
