The Golem


What [is Israel] to do? I have other dreams as well— apocalyptic ones. I think: Israel has been building nuclear weapons for thirty years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow—it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? With an H-bomb?
What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter? Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens?
For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away . . . have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?

We [Israelis] possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force. Our armed forces are not the 30th strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capacity to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.

The Golem, page 11:

Top illustration: A 19th century illustration of Rabbi Loew of Prague conjuring up the legendary Golem of Jewish lore. A real-life Golem exists in Israel today: its arsenal of nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Bottom illustration: A scene from one of the famous three-part series of films by German expressionist filmmaker Paul Wegener, telling the story of “The Golem.” Here Rabbi Loew (right) and a henchman cling to the monster the rabbi created. The tale of The Golem—memorialized in print, on the stage and in film over the centuries— is (perhaps unwittingly) a warning to our world of the dangers of religious fanaticism. The modern-day nuclear Golem in Israel stands at the center of world unrest today. and must be smashed.
