"beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles" - Hitler Effect


Hitler Effect

Hitler didn't look like a Northern European.

He looked like an Italian or a Portuguese.  Rather, he looked like a Judaist.  But when he delivered a speech, he looked like a real fighter against Judaists.  No one doubted that he knew every evil of Judaists as he resembled them.  As Hitler resembled Judaists, he must be able to understand evil of Judaists more than anybody, people thought.

On the other hand, Hitler thought that he had not been successful in society as he looked like Judaists.  Hitler thought if he had looked like a typical Northern European, he should have been accepted and thought of highly by Austrians and Germans.  Poor and young Hitler thought that the reason why he had been apparently rejected by the main stream society in the German speaking society due to his resemblance to Judaists must be that He had a holy mission to eradicate Judaists from Austria and Germany.

Hitler thought that a Higher Spirit made him look like a Jewish person to make him hate Judaists.  He though that he had to accept this terrible fate.

But, at the same time, Hitler was afraid that some Germans might come to think that he resembled Jewish people too much; but why?   In order to remove such suspicion, he thought that he had to be the cruelest man against Judaists.    

Taking this strategy, Hitler succeeded.  Ordinary German people thought secretly that Hitler looked like a Judaist but such Germans were not so rare; Hitler was one of Christian Germans who looked like Jewish people; Hitler's ancestors must have come from the south of the Alps to Austria; and such guys were a kind of funny and not threatening to Germans with Norther European traits.  Hitler was accepted as a kind of jokes.  He could be even loved by smiling Northern Europeans.

In some extreme cases, Hitler's followers must have thought that they had to save their leader Hitler by annihilating his likes, namely Judaists, since their resemblance to Hitler must have made the great leader suffer so much.

So, it is said that six million Judaists were killed by Hitler and his subordinates and admirers.  Hitler must have been thinking that you, Judaists, were wrong because you looked like me so much.

Finally what is the lesson?  

Hitler found that his resemblance to Judaists had made him fail in the German speaking society.  Hitler thought that he would be annihilated unless he annihilated Judaists.  So, he ventured into leading annihilation of Judaists for his survival and success.  But at any time, some Germans might point at Hitler, saying, "He looks like a Judaist!"  Hitler had to literally annihilate Jewish people till all the Judaists who looked like him were gone.  Then, he would be able to sleep in peace at night, he must have thought.

This kind of fear rising from one's personal sense of a crisis related to his physical traits is very strong in any society and at any time of history.  Accordingly, reference to one's physical characteristics should be avoided as much as possible in religion and other non-nonsense fields.

Therefore Judaists have not been excellent painters and sculptors like ancient Greeks or Romans.  Christians have never handed down physical traits of Christ Jesus and other key early followers of Him.  Islam forbade even imaging how Muhammad looked.

If there is somebody who looks like Moses, Christ Jesus or Muhammad, such a man might become another Hitler if he gets convinced of his resemblance to one of them.  It can be named the Hitler Effect.    

But too many sculptured figures and paintings of Holy Mary are seen in Europe.

Mat 4:14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Mat 4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
Mat 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
