In the Han Dynasty, historians were appointed by royal edict to write the history of Imperial China. They alone were the arbiters of what would be recorded.

At the end of each reign the box would be opened and the documents published, perhaps to benefit the next emperor. But for these documents, Imperial China, to a large extend, has no history.

Amrita smiled. 'Yes, I'm aware of that,' she said. 'Scheduled Class or Harijan, 'Beloved of God,' I grew up with the conventions. But they are mere euphemisms, as I'm sure you are well aware, Mr. Chatterjee. She was 'Scheduled Class' because she was born out of caste and will die there.

'Yes.' "

Hasidic Jews Israel 1979 Ing, Dean. Soft Targets. New York: Tor (1996; c. 1979); pg. 56. "He lingered at his table, reflecting on the irony of an orthodox Jewish sect so conservative t could find common cause with Third World radicals. 'Neturay Karta', his sabra mother had said, meant 'guardians of the city'. In the orthodox quarters of some Israeli cities lay houses and attitudes musty with a hundred generations of tradition. Old Testament Hebrew scriptures insisted that ha-messiach, the Messiah, would come one day--but at a time when He was most needed; a time when there was no Israel.

The strict fundamentalist Neturay Karta sect argued that, since the scriptures were scrupulously exact, the Messiah would not come so long as Israel existed. Therefore, they reasoned, they must abet the Coming of ha-messiach by destroying the State of Israel. " [More, not in DB.]

"If young kibbutz women strayed into Neturay Karta haunts in short sleeves or worse, shorts, they risked being stoned by fundamentalists who would rather have a dark carcass putrefying in the street than have it removed by a girl in such scandalous garb. Everett had heard of retaliatory raids by kibbutzim to break a few heads in the old quarter. Until now it had seemed a joke to Everett, albeit a bad one. But Chaim Mardor was no joke; he had shot down a passerby as if eradicating vermin. To Mardor it had to be a sort of holy war; an Arab's jehad. And there could be no greater glory for some than to die in a jehad. "

When I was in Jerusalem, during the debates for disbanding the Mossad, we used to bait the Hasid kids with quotes. We went at them like Baptists--quoting form the New Testament. We'd say things that sounded like the commentaries, and the Hasids would get confused. They felt like they should know these quotes, but of course they didn't.'

Barshak smiled. 'So what happened?'

'When their rabbi found out, he gathered together a bunch of rocks. Next time we came by, the Hasid kids picked up the stones and chased us off the block. It got a broken rib out of that one, but the uproar sent a howl throughout the city. When the cityis Jerusalem, that means something. The debates were stalled. The Mossad stayed in operation... For a little while, anyway.' "

"Among the crowd were thirteen heavily bearded men wearing the dark hats and coats over fringed shawls of the Hasidic Jewish community. These were retiring, taciturn men, a mystery and often apparently invisible to most of the denizens of the city. the men stopped their walking and astute murmurings when they came to the crowd watching the vampire announced the arrival of Wainwright McAfee. They stood there for the entire display... through the packing up and leaving... Nearly the entire crowd, who now blocked most of 72nd Street, stayed for a minute or two after McAfee disappeared... As the throng showed signs of leaving, however, the witnesses to the street madness were further confused. The thirteen Hasids strode, shoulders hunched and heads down, into a line in front of the gallery. Simultaneously, they threw off their coats, hats, pants, shawls and false beards, and there in the March chill, arm in bare arm, stood a leggy row of twelve chorus girls in feathers... "

He glanced at me to gauge my reaction.

'The Malachim?' The Hasidic terrorists went by the code name Malachim?' The Hasidic terrorists went by the code name Malachim Nikamah, the Angels of Vengeance.

He nodded. I raised my eyebrows, but held my tongue. It made sense. The Malachim were renowned hackers and the LINK was what they terrorized. They shared Michael's distaste for Letourneau's bid for messiah, and disbelief in the divinity of the LINK-angels.

'Things didn't work out with them,' he said.

'And you think they will with me?'

Michael nodded.

"I don't know about this,' I started. 'People with past terrorist connections representing hidden interests don't exactly inspire trust, you know...'

"According to Robbie, Skolnick had been bagged for several years by his court reporter, a Hasidic Jew by the name of Pincus Lebovic. Blue-eyed and foxy-looking behind the dense brown growth of his beard and pais, Pincus in his dark, outdated suits presided over the courtroom in a style bordering on tyrannical. He was cold-blooded and peremptory. It was even said that, on occasion, Pincus would halt proceedings, purportedly to change the paper in his stenographic machine, but actually to take the judge back to chambers to give him directions or, even, a scolding. The recognized brains of the team, Pincus handled all arrangements with the lawyers who 'talked' to the judge. " [More.]

Hasidic Jews world 2076 Morehouse, Lyda. Archangel Protocol. New York: Penguin Putnam (2001); pg. 76. "No group has claimed responsibility for the Paris attack, but Christendom spokesperson Shelia McEvers believes this to be the work of the LINK-terrorist group known as Malachim Nikamah [Hasidic Jews]... 'The method is very similar,' she said. 'Cruelty like this could only come from a non-Christian group like the Malachim shel Nikamah. Who else would do this kind of crazy, destructive thing?'

Jake knew enough earth history to draw a quick comparison. He knew what hate groups like the Nazis had done to Jews and others during the 1940s, what white supremacists [led largely by Southern Baptist preachers] had done to his own black ancestors in the southern United States and in Africa during past centuries--and these were just two examples of the long, puzzling saga of man's inhumanity to man.

'Excuse me?' Everett asked. 'Repeat?'

As if in answer, Harrowhouse yanked on the cord he held and a slip-knot released the bolt of cloth. It unrolled to reveal the big, cheerfully colored international logo spelling out in big block letters: FRIENDS OF HUMANITY. A matching blue border decorated the edge like patriotic bunting.

Friend of Humanity: the small but visibly growing anti-mutant hate group whose political power had grown to an astonishing degree in a short time. The head of the organization, Graydon Creed, was a legitimate Presidential candidate. They had the ears of senators and governors, CEOs and professors. At their best, they asserted that homo superior were a threat to the world's future. At worst, they were the harbingers of a worldwide holocaust and race war.

And here these normal-seeming people--LaWanda and Amanda, for pity's sake--involved themselves because they thought this was a fun time and a neat way to make new friends.

'So let us say together,' Harrowhouse smiled, closing his eyes as if floating blissfully on a cloud, 'Earth for humanity!'

'Earth for humanity!' they all repeated... "

"Most people still trusted Wonder Woman, he [the newscaster] reported, rattling off numbers, a poll, a graph, demographics. It seemed that the greatest concentrations of hatred were not at all where Helena might have expected, had she thought in terms of conventional cliches. There was a strong anti-Wonder Woman sentiment in the Deep South, which did not surprise Helena, but the figures were even higher in the Pacific Northwest, and for reasons she could not understand, lowest through the middle of the Bible Belt.

This thing is hitting people in places they didn't realize they had. It's bringing out a kind of insanity that has nothing to do with race or education, with politics or even religion. It starts as a religious argument--Rebecca Chandler started with that--but it turns into something else. Some kind of primitive thing, jealousy, fear. Xenophobia. "
