Additions to Esther: Intolerance

  1. "The Lord ... commanded that there should be two lots, one of the people of God, and the other of all the nations."
    God likes Jews more than everyone else. 10:10

  2. "The Lord remembered his people."
    (By having them murder thousands of people.) 10:10

  3. "The nation of the just ... cried to God ... and they devoured the glorious."
    "The nation of the just" is, of course, the Jews. They cry to God and God helps them kill everyone else. 11:9-11

  4. "What God would do?"
    (He would help the Jews kill non-Jews.) 11:12

  5. Esther calls upon God and God softens the king's heart (so that he'd murder thousands of non-Jews). 15:3-11

  6. The king decrees that Haman and his family shall hang; that everyone in the kingdom who wanted to kill the Jews shall be killed; that whoever refuses to kill the people that wanted to kill Jews will be killed by sword and fire; and that everyone will celebrate the killing of the wannabe Jew killers forever. 16:10-18
