Following yesterday's post, "The Trail of Tears", many people have been asking all kinds of questions about Tsa La Gi: Where did he get his deep empathy for the Jews? Is there a connection between the Cherokees of Georgia and the Jews? Does Tsa La Gi, with his uncanny insight, see a bigger picture of what's in store for the Jewish people? What's the wierd connection between Tsa La Gi and Lazer, an American Cherokee and an Israeli Jew?
Tsa La Gi received his deep empathy for the Jewish People from his great uncle, who served as an infantry soldier with the US 45th Division in WWII. The 45th Division had an ancient Indian symbol of the Thunderbird as its crest, suitably so, since it was composed heavily of American Indian soldiers who lived in Oklahoma and other parts of the Southwest. They fought the toughest and bloodiest battles of the war with dignity and valor. Tsa La Gi's great uncle survived virtually all theaters of Europe, and was one of the first soldiers of the 45th Division to witness the scope of atrocities of the Holocaust when the 45th spearheaded the liberation of Dachau in April of 1945, freeing 32,000 prisoners, barely alive.
Tsa La Gi's great uncle made a personal resolution at the time to pass what he had seen on to future generations, and he did this by telling his grandchildren and grand-nephews what he had witnessed. He also made them vow never to participate in something as evil and murderous as what he had witnessed, even when it was made to appear good by the government. Tsa La Gi wrote me that the lesson took root, because he has never forgotten it to this day.
The front gate of Dachau Concentration camp - could this happen again?
Tsa La Gi writes, "When governments turn against their people and become dangerous, like some seem to have done today, it is up to regular everyday people to stand up and make a difference. Germany didnt become murderous overnight. They did it in steps, and they did it under the pretext of ensuring security for their citizens. Germany is only one country, however. Today, the scope of the newest movement seems to be global, and it is unsettling to say the least. I feel this movement is rapidly approaching the capability to be genocidal, and it worries me for the safety of Israel."
"College taught me," he continues, "that all genocidal movements of the last hundred or so years have practiced anti-semitism as a core rallying point. The rise in ant-semitism among this movement is a foreboding sign, and it seems to be a rallying point. These are textbook signs of Totalitarianism approaching. It seems that the time to choose sides is rapidly approaching, and I have chosen the right side. Of that I have no doubt. I will cast my fate with your people, Rabbi; I dont think I am alone in my decision, either."
Tsa La Gi is a man of honor and integrity. He has been tested many a time under fire. I asked myself, why do I feel such a kinship, such a bond of brotherhood with this extraordinary individual? Is it only because of our similar past histories? I think it's more than that. Tsa La Gi is a breath of fresh air that's scented with truth. Truth is G-dliness, that draws my soul like a magnet. More than anything, he seems to be my brother. Could that be?
Is there a connection between the Cherokees and the Jews? What's this have to do with Disengagement, the future of Israel, and Moshiach? G-d willing, you'll find out in tomorrow's Lazer Beams. Don't miss part 3 of "The Trail of Tears".
