Israel vision: Destruction or deconstruction?
Exponents of the so-called Israel vision believe the white European race to be the offspring of the 'lost ten tribes of Israel'. In their monographs the Bible is treated as a prophecy of the present day, having made an exact forecast of the present role of this white race in the final stages of God's cosmic war against Satan. Studying these publications from the viewpoint of modem hermeneutics, allowing extensive space for the deconstructive role of the reader in the reading process, this article shows how every known fallacy in Biblical exegesis is found in one form or another in this literature. The conclusion is drawm that such arbitrary deconstruction is found with these authors, that it seems justified to describe the reading process found here as one in which destruction rather than deconstruction of the Biblical text takes place.
