Battle of Jerusalem- 1917 And Now 2017?

Battle of Jerusalem – 1917
And Now 2017?

The Mossad Agent called the Controller of The Golem was reading an Israeli newspaper that said U.S. President Donald Trump might recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternally undivided capital this week.

The Controller of The Golem was an astute enough geopolitical analyst (unlike Mr. Trump) to realize that such a formal unilateral announcement on the part of the U.S. (which had not been arrived at in formal Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations) would probably cause massive unrest in the Arab and Islamic world.

And might even lead to an all out war in the Middle East between Israel and the Muslim world.

Nathan (the Controller’s real name) reflected on the fact that it was 100 years ago this late autumn and early winter that the Battle of Jerusalem was fought.

The Battle of Jerusalem fought between November 17th 1917 to December 30th 1917 was a battle fought in the Middle Eastern theatre of the First World War.

The opposing forces involved in the Battle was the British Empire against the Ottoman and German Empires.

Forces of the United Kingdom, Australia, India and New Zealand were fighting Turkish and German troops.

The commander of British forces was General Edmund Allenby.

The battle was fought on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea north of Jaffa into the Judean Hills in and around Jerusalem.

Jerusalem had been conquered by the Ottoman Empire in 1517 and now exactly 400 years later its rule was about to end.

The British Commander General Allenby had been assigned by his superiors in London to take the city but he had been assigned an impossible task.

He had been ordered to take the city without a shot being fired.

How on Earth, Allenby asked his superiors, was that to be done?

“Pray,” was the directive the British wartime cabinet sent back.

The answer did not seem very helpful to Allenby.

Nevertheless Allenby followed the advice and prayed.

And it happened shortly afterwards that Allenby was given a copy of Bible scholar Dr. H. Aldersmith’s 1898 book The Fulness of The Nations.

The book was an analysis of the Old Testament prophecies regarding Israel.

In his analysis of Isaiah Chapter 31, Dr. Aldersmith believed that the United Kingdom would have a part to play in the restoration of Jerusalem to the Jews and this would be accomplished through some type of flying machine.

Dr. Aldersmith based his belief on Isaiah 31 verses 4 and 5.

Verse 4 reads “For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight for Mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.”

Verse 5 reads, “As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.”

Dr. Aldersmith had interpreted the lion as being Britain and the young lion as the colonies of the Empire.

The symbol for Britain of course had long been a lion.

And as this postcard from World War 1 illustrates, Britain thought of itself as a lion and its colonies as young lion cubs:

Dr. Aldersmith had interpreted Isaiah 31 v. 5 as referring to some type of flying machine.

Adding 400 to the year 1517 as 400 was an important Biblical number (The Israelites had been enslaved in Egypt for 400 years), Dr. Aldersmith believed that Britain would capture Jerusalem from the Ottoman Turks through the use of a flying machine in the year 1917.

All of this Dr. Aldersmith had written about in his 1898 book.

Of course 5 years after the publication of Aldersmith’s book, the Wright Brothers invented the airplane.

And 14 years after that, airplanes were in use in 1917 but not commonly and most people (particularly those in the Middle East) had never seen one.

Aldersmith’s interpretation of Isaiah 31 was Gen. Allenby’s inspiration.

He would fly planes over Jerusalem and drop notes over the city saying in Arabic, “Surrender the city! Allenby.”

Unbeknownst to Allenby, there was an Arab saying that said, “The Turks will not leave Jerusalem until the river Nile flows in Palestine and the Prophet expels them from the city.”

British troops had been stationed in Egypt prior to 1917 and Lt. Gen. Sir Archibald Murray had built a pipeline to supply fresh Nile water to British troops.

By 1917 the water had arrived along with the troops in Palestine.

The saying spread among the Arabs that year that the River Nile was now flowing in Palestine.

Secondly, Allenby’s airdropped note, when written in Arabic, looked like it said, “Surrender the city! Al Nabi.”

Al Nabi means The Prophet in Arabic.

It looked like the Prophet was calling on them to surrender Jerusalem in notes from the sky.

The Turks immediately started leaving the city when mysterious flying objects started sending messages from Al Nabi.

From the evening of December 8th 1917 and all through the night, Turkish troops were leaving Jerusalem.

By early the following morning of December 9th 1917, all had gone and the Mayor of Jerusalem with a small party came under a white flag to surrender the keys of the city.

The formal surrender was accepted by General O’ Shea on behalf of Gen. Allenby.

Gen. Allenby himself took the official ceremonial surrender two days later on December 11th 1917.

Interestingly enough the evening of December 8th to the day of December 9th 1917 fell on the 24th of the Hebrew month of Kislev on the Jewish calendar that year.

The 24th of Kislev also known as Hanukkah was the day the Maccabees overthrew the Syrian Greeks and turfed out their idols from the Temple of Jerusalem in 167 BC.

Things seemed to have come full circle that year of 1917 the Controller of The Golem reflected.

And now what might this year 2017 bring? he wondered.

He felt an urge to talk to his friend Miranda.

Conflict With The Sire of Abaddon

October 7, 2017 at 7:50 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, International Intrigue, Mystery/horror, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , )

Conflict With The Sire of Abaddon

The Mossad agent they called The Controller of The Golem was swimming in the Mediterranean Sea waters off the coast of Tel Aviv.

Swimming alongside him was his new found friend Miranda the Mermaid.

The Controller in his right hand held what looked to be a harpoon.

But it was a special type of harpoon.

A harpoon invented by his friend the noted British scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher (Dr. Rocher had brought the Controller of The Golem back from the dead after his glass of Scotch whisky had been poisoned with polonium-210 administered by the ancient Babylonian vampiress Lilith).

The harpoon fired a Nikola Tesla Particle Death Beam- the only force capable of destroying a sea kraken.

And Miranda had recently found out that the mermaid goddess Atargatis had raised the eastern Mediterranean Sea kraken Sire of Abaddon to destroy Israel.

And now Sire of Abaddon was swimming underwater heading straight for Israel 🇮🇱.

Nathan (The Controller’s real first name) fired the harpoon.

But sadly the Tesla Particle Death Beam missed.

An angry tentacle shot out from the kraken Sire of Abaddon and proceeded to strangle Nathan.

Using all her strength, Miranda the mermaid managed to free Nathan from the kraken Sire of Abaddon’s tentacled grasp and drag him back to shore.

There Miranda had to hold back a thousand tears as she administered CPR to her beloved Nathan.

Mermaid Miranda’s Revelation Part 2

May 20, 2017 at 3:42 pm (Folklore, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, Mythology, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

“The reason,” Miranda the mermaid looked at Nathan the Controller of the Golem, “that the mermaid goddess Atargatis wants to destroy Israel is because of her daughter Semiramis. Semiramis has formed an alliance with the ancient Babylonian vampiress Lilith who, of course, has always wanted to destroy Israel and the Jews because she claims that the Babylonian Talmud maligned and libeled her good name.”

“Yes, Lilith once poisoned my Scotch whisky with polonium-210 while I was sitting in a London pub,” Nathan recalled, “it was Set Enterprises’ resident mad scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher who saved my life with an antidote to polonium-210 that he invented.”

“I heard about that, Nathan,” Miranda looked at him sympathetically.

“But what caused Semiramis to form an alliance with Lilith?” Nathan asked.

“Her first husband Nimrod returned to Earth a few years ago aboard a UFO with a bunch of ET grays,” Miranda explained, “and the ship crashed near Tuktoyaktuk, Canada north of the Arctic Circle. Nimrod’s body was recovered and taken to a secret lab near Washington DC. Lilith stole Nimrod’s body and brought him back to life. Only the magic kiss Lilith used to bring Nimrod back to life went awry and the princely ruler of ancient Babel was turned into a little green frog. He now hangs out between the breasts of Lilith in her low-cut evening dresses.”

“Sounds like Nimrod has become every teen-aged boy’s fantasy come true,” Nathan thought aloud to himself.

“Is it every human teen boy’s fantasy to be like Kermit the Frog?” Miranda looked quizzically at Nathan.

“Um… no,” Nathan shook his head. “so I take it that Semiramis has formed an alliance with Lilith since Nimrod has become (ahem!) so close to Lilith.”

“That is correct,” Miranda nodded.

“And Atargatis in turn has naturally joined in alliance with her daughter Semiramis who’s aligned with Lilith,” Nathan was beginning to see the light.

The morning sun peered through the aquarium lab’s windows.

Meanwhile in Saudi Arabia, U.S. President Donald Trump had arrived with First Lady Melania Trump.
Donald and Melania Trump
Donald: I didn’t see any mermaids down in the desert sands of Saudi Arabia.

Melania: That’s probably because they’re swimming in the ocean.

Over in London, vampire hunter and MI-6 operative Dracul Van Helsing had received a phone call from Peter Whitstable the Fox Mulder of Interpol.

“Dracul,” Whitstable began, “I’ve been doing some research on the famous 17th Century Jesuit scholar Father Athanasius Kircher. He apparently had in his possession some ancient Greek mechanism that was the equivalent of our analogue computers.It also served as an orrery to predict astronomical positions and eclipses. But according to the diary entry of Father Kircher’s I’ve come across, the mechanism could also be used to locate mermaids. Sadly the mechanism disappeared on the night of Father Kircher’s death.”

“You know what, Peter,” Dracul leafed through the pages of his ancestor Captain Dante Van Helsing’s journal, “I have an idea where that mechanism is now.”

“Where?” Whitstable asked.

“It’s now called the Antikythera Mechanism and it’s to be found in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.” Van Helsing answered.

Mermaid Miranda’s Revelation

May 19, 2017 at 4:21 pm (Folklore, Geopolitics and International Relations, History, International Intrigue, Mythology, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The mermaid who called herself Miranda had once again awakened in the salt water tank in the Israeli government aquatics laboratory in Tel Aviv.

The Controller of the Golem (a Mossad agent who went by that code name) came down to see her.

“Nice to see you awake, Miranda,” the Controller brought her roses wondering if a mermaid would like them.

She did.

She smelled them and smiled.

“Thank you, Nathan,” she said once again calling him by his first name known to few outside Mossad or the Israeli Prime Minister’s office.

“You’re welcome,” Nathan smiled at her.

Then she turned serious, “I landed on the beach at Tel Aviv to warn you and your people.”

“Warn us about what?” Nathan asked.

“The goddess Atargatis ancestress of all mermaids wants to destroy your nation,” Miranda looked grim.

Nathan knew his classical Near Eastern mythology.

Atargatis was a northern Syria goddess.

She was called Derketo by the Greeks and Dea Syriae by the Romans.

The goddess Atargatis fell in love with a mortal (a shepherd) and had a child by him- Semiramis.

One cruel day, Atargatis unintentionally killed her love and the father of her child.

Ashamed, she flung herself into a lake near Ashkelon and was turned into the form of a fish but the waters could not conceal her divine beauty.Thereafter she took the form of a mermaid- human above the waist, fish below.

Atargatis’ daughter Semiramis became a legendary Assyrian queen and was said to have been married to the biblical Nimrod (founder of Babel) and later Ninus (founder of the city of Nineveh).

A 19th Century Free Church of Scotland minister Alexander Hislop had several wet dreams about Semiramis inspiring him to label the Roman Catholic Church the Whore of Babylon and to write a book about the subject called The Two Babylons.

Nathan’s thoughts of his Ph.D Program in Classical Mythology at Cambridge University returned to the present.

“Why,” Nathan asked Miranda, “does the mermaid goddess Atargatis want to destroy Israel?”.

. . .

U.S. President Donald Trump was flying en route to Saudi Arabia when he was handed an NSA report that certain mermaids were plotting to destroy Israel.

Trump was angry when he read the report.

“How,” Trump blew both his top and his toupee, “am I supposed to tweet about this? Especially after I just called former FBI director James Comey a real nut job? And especially in lieu of the fact that polls indicate that some Americans think I’m off my rocker myself?”.

. . .

Dracul Van Helsing was reading the journal of one of his 17th Century ancestors Captain Dante Van Helsing.

The journal had been found floating in a wooden chest on the Aegian Sea after his ancestor’s ship The Virgil went down on his final voyage.

The last entry said that Dante had been turned on by the sight of sirens singing on a rock.

When he neared the rock, a mermaid who called herself Thessalonike of Macedon appeared.

Dracul knew that according to history, Thessalonike of Macedon was the half-sister of Alexander the Great.

According to legend, Alexander had found the Fountain of Immortality and had filled a flask of water from it.

He washed his sister’s hair with the flask.

When Alexander died, his grief-stricken sister threw herself into the sea.

Instead of drowning, she became an immortal mermaid.

When she encountered sailors, she always asked them the same question, “Is Alexander the king alive?”.

The correct answer in her opinion would be, “He lives and reigns and conquers the world.”

If given this answer, she would allow the crew and their ship to sail safely away in calm seas.

Any other answer would send her into a rage and she’d cause the waves to send the ship and every sailor on board to the bottom.

The journal entry ended with Dante saying that Thessalonike had just appeared.

Obviously Dante’s answer of Thessalonike’s question was not to her liking.

The Mermaid and The Mossad Agent

May 14, 2017 at 3:50 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, International Intrigue, Vampire novel) (, , , )

The Mossad agent they called the Controller of the Golem received a phone call in his Jerusalem office.

A mermaid had been found stranded on the beaches of Tel Aviv.

The mermaid was now recuperating in an Israeli government aquatics laboratory.

The Controller and those in the know in the Israeli government knew there were such things as mermaids.

In fact, U.S. President George W. Bush had ordered a secret special commando raid on the city of Mosul early on in the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq in order to grab a rare copy of the Babylonian Talmud from a Mosul museum.

This particular copy of the Babylonian Talmud was the only one in existence where the existence of mermaids was specifically mentioned and acknowledged.

So the Controller wasn’t surprised by the mermaid’s existence.

He did know that landing on a public beach was a rare thing for a mermaid to do.

The Controller went down to the aquatics laboratory to see the mermaid.

“Hello,” the Controller spoke to the mermaid sleeping in the salt water tank.

“Nathan,” the mermaid opened her eyes and looked at him.

The Controller was startled.

For not many knew the Mossad agent’s actual first name outside a select few.

“Yes, I’m Nathan,” the Controller of the Golem acknowledged, “and what is your name?”.

“Miranda,” answered the mermaid and she promptly fell asleep again.

“Miranda,” the Mossad agent repeated the name to himself as he looked at the sleeping mermaid, “O brave new world that has such people in it!”.
