(Melchizedek Communique, MC112808) Is Barack Obama a golem? The question must be asked.
In an introduction to Gustav Meyrink's novel, The Golem, Robert Irwin describes a golem as "hyle or matter which had not been shaped in form. More curiously Hassidic mystics in twelfth-thirteenth century Germany are known to have practised an obscure ritual which aimed to use the Cabalistic power of the Hebrew alphabet and manipulate the material form of the universe to create a 'golem'."
Meyrink himself has the character Zwakh the Puppeteer shrugging his shoulders and saying, "The origin of the story is supposed to go back to the sixteenth century. A rabbi, following instructions in a lost book of the Cabbala, is said to have created an artificial man, the so-called Golem, as a servant to help him ring the synagogue bells and do other menial tasks."
Then later, Zwakh the Puppeteer theorizes, "Just as on sultry days the static electricity builds up to unbearable tension until it discharges itself in lightning, could it not be that the steady build-up of those never-changing thoughts that poison the air in the Ghetto lead to a sudden, spasmodic discharge?" And then would appear, "a phantom that in expression, gait and behavior, in every last detail, would reveal the symbol of the soul of the masses, if only we were able to interpret the secret language of forms?"
The secret language of forms. "I began to warm and chill, To objects and their fields, A ragged cup, a twisted mop, The face of Jesus in my soup..." ("The Mercy Seat", lyrics by Johnny Cash).
There is much dispute over the origin of Barack Obama. Philip J. Berg, a prominent Pennsylvania Democrat, claims that Obama is not a natural-born citizen and, therefore, is not eligible to be president of the United States. However a WorldNetDaily investigation has found that at least part of Berg's lawsuit relies on discredited claims. ("Democrat sues Sen. Obama over 'fraudulent candidacy'", by Drew Zahn. WorldNetDaily, August 23, 2008). And why would a Democrat be doing this to a fellow member of his party? Is Hillary Clinton the puppeteer behind Philip J. Berg?
Israel Insider wonders if Barack Obama's father might secretly be Malcolm X. A mysterious source concludes, "Obama is a German sleeper agent." As to Malcolm X being the biological father of Obama, "the hereditary claim cannot be discounted. If he was indeed the illegitimate offspring of Malcolm – the closest that one can get to 'royalty' in the messianic broth of black radical Islamic and Communistic politics – that would explain the otherwise inexplicable," speculates Israel Insider. ("Is Obama the secret son of Malcolm X?", by Reuven Koret.)
Now add to the mix that Barack Obama may be a golem, brought to life by a Kabbalist. Who is this Obama? What do we really know about him?
