Ana HaShem Hoshi’ah Na
It is the year 500 CE. Uther Pendragon is not long in the grave, and the state of Celtic Britain could not be worse: under attack from the outside, with no leader worthy of the name in the inside. Uther’s knights are squabbling among themselves, struggling for pieces of the pie.

(IsraelNN.com) Outgoing Labor Chairman Peretz is set to join forces with Ami Ayalon when the latter faces off against Ehud Barak in the party’s primaries next week.
Britain is reaping the fruit of Vortigern’s misguided plan, of inviting Anglo-Saxons as mercenaries serving him; his was short-term thinking, not considering the possibility that the latter might use it as an opportunity to stay. Now the Anglo-Saxons are claiming the land as their own, aided by knights as venal as was Vortigern.
As of Saturday night, Ayalon stands to be bolstered by the support of third-place finisher and incumbent party leader Amir Peretz. Peretz is scheduled to make a speech calling on his supporters to vote for Ayalon.
Merlin looks at those selfish knights, sighing, thinking: they would sell their own mothers to the Saxons if it meant great wealth to them. The daily incursions of the Saxons upon British towns mean nothing to them as long as they are safely tucked in their castles.
Peretz, who has announced that he will step down from the job of Defense Minister, met with Ayalon on Saturday night to discuss the details of their agreement. In return for his support, Peretz will receive this series of demands: He will receive an economic ministerial post to be carved out for him in future coalition negotiations with Kadima; his ministerial allies—Yuli Tamir and Raleb Mejadle—will remain in their positions; and the party’s Central Committee will decide in the near future if and when to quit the Olmert government.
“He who pulls the sword out of this stone is the true-born King of Britain”, says the inscription. All the knights set out to the task, craving the throne with their greedy hearts. “Surely I am fit for this role, am I not?”, each thinks. Surely a knight like myself, and not any other, let alone a commoner, and far be it an illegitimate child.
What is taken generously is given back generously: Arthurian Legend took from the Biblical history and prophecy of King David, and now it has given back by being a reflecting mirror of the current situation in the land of source.
In a world of clueless, self-interested, naïve, dhimmi “leaders”, fervently awaited is the unlikely person who will lift the sword from the stone. Come, Mashiach Ben David, and lead us to victory against the past foolishly invited, now brazenly attacking, invader! Speedily in our days, amen!
