Bibi’s Speech and Queen Esther’s Example

It is noteworthy that Netanyahu’s speech is scheduled for March 3, two days in advance of the Purim holiday, and the eve of the Fast of Esther, observed by religious Jews around the world. The fast commemorates a similar fast held by the Jews of the Persian empire to assist Queen Esther, a Jewess, before she approached the king’s to request that he reverse a decree condemning the Jews of Persia to death. Anyone who approached the king uninvited risked an immediate death sentence.


Esther herself prevaricated, telling her cousin Mordechai: “All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that any man or woman who goes to the king and enters the inner courtyard without being summoned, his is but one verdict: execution; except for the person to whom the king extends his golden scepter [only] he shall live. And I have not been summoned to come to the king for thirty days now.” (Esther 4:11)
