The Demonic Dynamics of Anti-Semitism: The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 27

Making an offer the King can't refuse; a fortune to allow genocide of the Jews. Shockingly, the “pay for slay,” is declined: “keep your silver, and do as you please” he counters! Clearly the monarch is also a vicious anti-Semites, yet their prevailing attitudes seems so disparate. An enigmatic metaphor is presented: two landowners with mirror-image issues – one landowner struggles with a superfluous mound, while the other an annoying ditch, they meet and a final solution emerges. Richly elucidated, a Torah-true perspective on this pernicious hate emerges. (Tractate Megillah 13b-14a)
