James Woolsey gave a speech in a similar vein. Instead of emphasizing more abstract theological ideas, he spoke through a political/legal prism, illustrating reverence to law (Torah) as taking precedence over the whims of a human tyrannical leader. Thus, Jews have been seen by tyrants as the first obstacle when seeking to legitimize their rule. He draws parallels between the stability offered to societies by rule of law and the symbolic threat to it illustrated when Jews, as adherents to a theology based principally in the idea of the power of laws, are targetted.
