Jürgen Todenhöfers record über den IS-Terror

Im Sommer 2014 führte Jürgen Todenhöfer mehrere Monate lang Gespräche mit deutschen Islamisten (via Skype), die sich dem IS-Staat angeschlossen haben. Die Erkenntnisse, die er in diesen Gesprächen gewann, sind mehr als erschreckend und enthüllen die mörderischen Absichten des sogenannten Kalifats, das einen weltweiten Gottesstaat errichten will und dabei auch vor Massenmorden nicht zurückschreckt, selbst unter Muslimen. Nach der Erweiterung Ihres Staates im Nahen Osten, bei der sie die Nachbarstaaten unterwerfen wollen, haben sie Europa und den Westen im Visier.

Example text

In the Septuagint the three cola seem to appear in a different order: the two cola, which exhibit parallelism, appear first in sequence and the shorter one with the peculiar suffix is in the third position. The divine epithets also reveal differences: ἅγιος clearly corresponds to ‫קדושׁ‬, but how about δίκαιος for ‫ צור‬and the additional ἅγιος in the short colon? As for the rendering of ‫צור‬, there seems to have been a silent agreement among the Septuagint translators not to translate it literally when it is used as a divine epithet, which can be observed very clearly in the Psalms.

Jokiranta (JSJSup 126; Leiden, 2008), 353–366. 11 I have dealt with the dtr origin of this verse in “Hannah’s Psalm: Text, Composition, and Redaction,” in Houses Full of All Good Things: Essays in Memory of Timo Veijola, ed. J. Pakkala and M. Nissinen (Publications of the Finnish Exegetical Society 95; Helsinki/Göttingen, 2008), 354–376. 12 There is a similarly disturbing 2nd masc. sg. suffix at the end of the first verse. 28 anneli aejmelaeus added to the first colon – and not an independent statement – with a mistaken suffix.

If we must always begin by asking whether a variant is or is not the result of a corruption of the Hebrew or the Greek, the approach will then consist in identifying, in the witnesses at our disposal, the different stages of the literary growth of the biblical text – or different “editions” of the text – after its canonisation and situate them chronologically. Moreover, the method will no longer be eclectic. It will even be necessary to avoid mixing the different editions, but rather treat them as unities of sense which must be compared in extenso (see Barthélemy 2000).
