With God On Our Side by Bob Dylan

Yes I admit I was and still am a 'Bob Dylan fan'.And I love the song-poem as well.However I believe Bob waxes a bit over simplistcy at times in this one.Particularly in knee jerkingly blaming 'the Germans' for or of
 murdering, ' six million,In the ovens they fried,'as he states it.After all European Christians killed for more of each other of the centuries than they klled any 'Jews' and Bob might have come out of his cultureacentric white 'Jewish' up bringing to have taking a little step back at looked at a little more distance and from a few more angles.I'm only glad he didn't say were,' murdered six million Semites',then I really would have barfed.
After all Jews in Europe were never 'Semites' in the first place,they were for the most just white Europeans with a different religion and in fact from a little distance they didn't even have a different religion because the 'Christians' were as much into the same old Testament patriarchs and low lifes of the Torah that the 'Jews' were into,only from a different take or angle in regards to inteerpretation of their shared mythology.
Obviously in retrospect no white Europeans were `semites' but the Euro Christians have never scene a ral Caucasian Semite in their life so what or how were they to know that thses 'Jews' were not really Semites and  had no historic origens or relation to the Middle East or Palestine or 'Israel' in the first place and they certainly weren't from any direct 'seed of Abraham' to say the least nor were any of their ancestors have anything to do with nor were they anywhere near or in the vicinity of Jerusalem when and if the Christian 'Savior',Jesus Christ' was crucified - if indeed that event ever occured in the first place !
It has pretty much been documented by the  former Hungarian Zionist Arthur Koestler who wrote,' The Thirteenth Tribe',about non Semitic Judeaism in Europe,that Jews in Europe generally looked like and had more genetically  in common with other European Christians in whose countries and regions they resided than they did among each other.This would literally mean a German Jew or Polish Jew or Hungarian Jew was in fact very well assimilated into the genetic mix of the region he or she inhabited either due to rape or extra marital dallying whether approved by the the Church or Rabbis or not.For now I'll leave at that and enjoy listening to  yet another recital of Bob Dylan's,'With God on our Side'.

With God On Our Side

Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

Oh the Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I's made to memorize
With guns in their hands
And God on their side.

The First World War, boys
It closed out its fate
The reason for fighting
I never got straight
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.

Whwn the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

I've learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life
If another war starts
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.
