"I agree it's sad but as Plato used to say : Most problems have their origin in a wrong worldview or to use a more current phrase in "wishful thinking"."

I can't argue with you on that my dear Janus, but you must be aware that Plato didn't tell you whose worldview is wrong, or who is the victim of "wishful thinking". You also must be aware that the Jewish People, in what you call" their naive belief that their religious utopia would win a war against the reality" in fact WON MORE THAN A SINGLE WAR AGAINST REALITY.

Regarding your lengthy and creative interpretation of the Scriptures, I'm sorry; I don't believe that debating it would lead us anywhere.
