Conspiracy against king and country?

Israeli police sent on wild-goose chase

#2. To: TooConservative (#1)

You should consider your deportation as an Exodus.

I know the Bible better than that and recognize these are the blessed United States of Manasseh (the golden medina) – not some Gentile desert – which is why so many Jews long to live here and others refuse to end their self-imposed exile to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland of Israel.

In a role reversal (a Jew being told to leave the northern Kingdom of Israel to return to the southern Kingdom of Judah, rather than a Joe like me being deported from Judah), a more appropriate analogy would be Amos who was accused of being involved in a conspiracy against the king and country and basically told to go back to where he came from, they didn’t want to hear it anymore:

Amos 5:10
10 They hate the one who rebukes in the gate,
And they abhor the one who speaks uprightly.

Amos 7
10 Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel,
saying, “Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel.
The land is not able to bear all his words.
11 For thus Amos has said:
‘ Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
And Israel shall surely be led away captive
From their own land.’”
12 Then Amaziah said to Amos:
“ Go, you seer!
Flee to the land of Judah.
There eat bread,
And there prophesy.
13 But never again prophesy at Bethel,
For it is the king’s sanctuary,
And it is the royal residence.”
14 Then Amos answered, and said to Amaziah:
“ I was no prophet,
Nor was I a son of a prophet,
But I was a sheepbreeder
And a tender of sycamore fruit.
15 Then the LORD took me as I followed the flock,
And the LORD said to me,
‘ Go, prophesy to My people Israel.’
16 Now therefore, hear the word of the LORD:
You say, ‘Do not prophesy against Israel,
And do not spout against the house of Isaac.’
17 “Therefore thus says the LORD:
‘ Your wife shall be a harlot in the city;
Your sons and daughters shall fall by the sword;
Your land shall be divided by survey line;
You shall die in a defiled land;
And Israel shall surely be led away captive
From his own land.’”
