The Scorpion and the Frog

History is full of wisdom if one just opens his eyes. Wisdom comes from experience. It comes from common sense. It comes from an understanding of human nature. An old parable is useful. This one came from ancient wisdom. It shows that creatures (including humans) have great difficulty moving beyond their basic nature. The closer we move toward enlightenment, the more we are able to alter our nature for the better. But history shows that one must be first WILLING to advance before it can be accomplished. If they do not, they remain barbarians.

The Scorpion and the Frog
  A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the 
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The 
frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion 
says, "Because if I do, I will die too."
  The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of 
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp "Why?" 
                               Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

Some cultures choose NOT to become enlightened. Then, those that have sought enlightenment and peace must call upon another basic of human nature: self-preservation. If they do not, then the barbarians will simply wipe them away. This is the situation in which Jews find themselves today. We are enlightened; we seek peace. But we are about to be wiped away. Will YOU preserve yourself? Will YOU preserve Israel?

About BlazeOfTruth

I am a Jewish immigrant from the former Soviet Union, a US Army veteran, and most importantly, a mom. While I never had much interest in politics I cannot, in good conscience, sit back and watch what is happening to our country. I love this America that was only a dream in my youth. It must remain the "Shining City on a Hill." Importantly, the current administration is mistreating our ally, Israel. Therefore, I have started this blog to show all the facts proving that the current administration is no friend to Israel and no friend to freedom!
