In Jewish tradition the Golem is a robot created by the Jews to serve the chosen people and their tribal interests.
The best known story of the Golem is of Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel, called the Maharal of Prague (1513-1609). It is said that the Maharalcreated a Golem out of clay to protect the Jews from blood libel and to help Jews comply with requirements for physical labour.
The Golem has made it to Israel. By now, the Palestinians are accustomed to being watched constantly by a score of Israeli flying Golem or ‘kosher drones.’
Yesterday we learned that the World Zionist Organization (WZO) has invested in a new cyber Golem designed to spy on all of us. Sniper, the new Golem will scan the net using a new algorithm, looking for anti-Jewish content.
The new Golem will search for certain keywords in different languages. A crew of WZO members will monitor the results, and react immediately. Once an offender is detected, the WZO will either contact authorities in the offending party's country or, alternatively, send a flying Golem to track the suspected Jew hater.
The Sniper Golem "will create deterrence," say the entrepreneurs behind it, "it won't be so easy to publish a status calling for the murder of Jews."
In my years of activity as a writer and researcher I have never come across a single ‘status’ calling for the ‘murder of Jews.’ This appears to be a severe manifestation of collective Jewish pre Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PRE TSD) hovering on the verge of psychosis.
The new Golem is set for launch on Sunday, during a WZO conference aimed at combating anti-Semitism in the modern era, which will be attended by Israel's Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and Knesset Speaker MK Yuli Edelstein. In short, if you planned to publish a ‘murderous status’, hurry up, only three days left.
