Rosh Chodesh Aleph
Nowhere is this attitude more pronounced than in the concept of American Exceptionalism.
This is nothing less than political replacement theology which arose out of theological replacement theology, which itself is very far from dead and buried. Christian America has usurped Israel's role in the world and is misleading all those who follow - either by choice or by force.
Like the pig with its outward kosher sign, but lacking the inward one, America is a nation which dresses up in a robe of righteousness, while inside, it is empty and that is no doubt why so many people feel the need to fill that vacuum with food. And that is why Eisav/Edom is likened to "straw" by the prophet Ovadiah - animal food, something to be trampled underfoot, a thing of no lasting substance which vanishes into smoke at the hint of a match.
America is not what it pretends to be. It is not what it imagines itself to be. And it is certainly not what American Jews think it is. America excels in pride. That will be her ultimate downfall.
For these reasons and more, America is doomed. And if a Jew calls himself an American and does not view himself as a foreigner living in a foreign land, he is doomed along with it.
But, in the end, it will be because Israel relied on America rather than on HKB"H that really sealed its fate.
