Government Says Deaths Necessary

In the wake of carrying out death sentences on all boys under the age of 2 in Bethlehem and surrounding districts, the government stands by its claim that the actions were necessary for the stability and welfare of the country at large.   The official report is that there was a insurgence brewing.  In order to avoid embroiling the region in war, they sought to round-up the ring leader, no matter what his age.  It is thought that he was killed in the attack.  A government spokesperson remarked that further action is not anticipated.  Many observers, stunned at the brutality and carnage, are quick to question the king’s intentions.  The proportion of parents in mourning is overwhelming the communities.  Reference is being made to a prophecy of Jeremiah’s which predicts just such a massacre in this locale.

    “I’m here with Elias, a temple guard here on the mount. Elias, what is your opinion of the strange events reported in Bethlehem?”

    “It’s the water. They are being poisoned by their water! Of course the government had to step in and deal with all those children – they were probably damaged from exposure, there’s no telling what disasters may have been caused by their maturation. I learned a little about the water, it’s a hobby of mine, just a little research, really. There must be some sort of seepage underground from the Dead Sea, or possibly their sewers are improperly designed. See here, if you look at these water tables I’ve drawn up and follow the watershed flow lines, there is definitely signs of leaching …”

    • It would be so interesting to know what the real propaganda and rumors were. Even when people have the facts quite available, they often like the “other versions” of the happenings better; that which which tickles the ear or advances the agenda…

    Not a whole lot different from today’s gov’t mandates….. trying to make things “better for the people.”
