JERICHO AS A METAPHOR, FOR EUROPEAN PLUNDER AND RAPE OF COLONIES.
Don’t blame European Christians for the criminal savagery inflicted on the colonized peoples of Africa, Asia, and Oceania. Blame the Christian Bible.
The Christian Bible served as the template, for the European conquest and plunder of Africa, Asia, and Oceania.
“And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword.”
The Europeans used guns, cannons, and divisions between the colonized peoples – prostitute in Jericho – to pacify the colonies.
After the destruction of Jericho, everything of value especially precious metals were carted away by the invading Hebrews, under the guise of offerings to God.
When discussing Slavery, The Bible makes a conscious distinction between Hebrew and non-Hebrew Slaves. The same distinction was used by the Europeans to justify enslavement of non-Europeans in the most brutal fashion, a slavery that persists today in the form of racism and hatism and the documented discrimination, exclusion, and segregation of Europeans by Europeans.
The lighter colored non-Europeans of Asia, also use their lighter skin color to practice a European-type racism and hatism directed at Blacks. In India, lighter skinned Indians shun darker Indians.
The depiction of Jesus Christ as White, may be another justification for White-on-Black Slavery and Oppression.
Remember, Jesus never explicitly condemned Slavery in any of his famous sermons.
“Non-Hebrews, on the other hand, could (according to Leviticus 25:44) be subjected to slavery in exactly the way that it is usually understood. The slaves could be bought, sold and inherited when their owner died. This, by any standard, is race- or ethnicity-based, and Leviticus 25:44-46 explicitly allows slaves to be bought from foreign nations or foreigners living in Israel. It does say that simply kidnapping Hebrews to enslave them is a crime punishable by death (Deuteronomy 24:7), but no such prohibition exists regarding foreigners. War captives could be made slaves, assuming they had refused to make peace (this applied to women and children — men were simply killed), along with the seizure of all their property”
The killing of Black Slaves was practiced in the most nocuous manner by Islamic Arabs. Black Slaves were killed after use. Again, Islam is an offshoot of Judaism but without a restraining New Testament.
The Europeans inherited Christianity from Hebrews and also inherited the practice of slavery from the Hebrews.
Colonized peoples of Africa, Asia, and Oceania were spared the fate of Jericho because of the enormous distances between the colonized and colonizing nations.
Natives were needed to transport the loot to Europe and America. Slaves were also needed to turn the loot into wealth in Europe and America.
As the world changes, human behavior and prejudices rarely change but are disguised and assume other forms.
