“For Such a Time as This” (Esther 4:14) | Behold Israel

“For Such a Time as This” (Esther 4:14)

Amir’s short commentary on Netanyahu’s speech before congress this week.


According to the Jewish calendar, we are now in the month of Adar. It is the time of the year when we, the Jewish people, are commanded to be happy. according to the book of Esther, this is the month when we mark our deliverance from the hand of the anti Semitic Persian Haman.

Why is it then that I have a sense of Deja-Vu?

Again it’s the existence of the Jews versus the enemy from Persia that wants our annihilation.
Again, it’s doing things by way of bypassing protocol in order to save the moment.

Again, it’s one person’s stand for the truth versus many who believe the lie.

Again, it’s people who know nothing about the scheme behind the scenes, thus aren’t able to react in a proper, just and humane way.

Benjamin Netanyahu is not my cup of tea. In many ways, he is not my role model.
Yet, Maybe he is holding his office now, just like queen Esther did, “for such a time as this”. ( Esther 4:14).
Just as Winston Churchill wrote to his best friend Lord Moyne at the eve of the second World War -the choice is between shame and war. the world powers are about to choose shame to avoid war yet war will come at their doorstep in much more adverse terms than before.

Go Mr. Prime Minister and speak out the truth!
