A Preview: A Tale of Two Regions: (Eretz Yisrael and California)

Updates Below:

This was going to be a post about a tale of two cities Yerushalayim and San Francisco, but I decided to make it a bit more regional at least at first because the Santa Ana winds (a dry East wind) which will be discussed in the post really blow over Southern California and not so much over Northern California.  Santa Ana is a Spanish slur word for Satanic or Devil Wind, and it for the most part blows in the Fall.  Let that stew in your head.  And Eretz Yisrael's version of the East Wind is called the Chamsin which means "50 Days", and that Wind blows between Pesach and Shavuot here.  For now we will leave that point to discuss the intro. to a more monumental post about the Gateway to the 50th level of purity vs. the Gateway through the 49th level of impurity.  In both ways, the World stands, as of now after Shavu'ot 5775, at both Gateways.  We are now in the 49th Summer since and including the 6 Day War and the Real large scale beginning of the Ba'al Teshuvah movement which began just before Shavuot in the 1967 (5727) right after the 6 Day War.  We are also entering the 49th year since and including the Summer of Sexual Promiscuity (Zimah in Hebrew) which swept America and the Western World from its starting point in San Francisco, California, also in 1967.

This post about San Francisco vs. Yerushalayim, a Tale of Two Cities will take awhile.  I am starting on it today.  Please be patient with me.  It is a monumental post I believe, to talk about the four "elements" in nature from the perspective of Qedushah vs. Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah.  Just some advance hints:  The Four elements (earth, water, wind, and fire) really are not elements at all.  They are the four physical states of matter (solids, liquids, gases, and plasma), and there are only two places on the Globe which geographically reflect the direction from which these "elements" or physical states of matter spiritually come.  We learn from the Torah that the Menorah (fire) is in the South (of the Mishkan) while the Shulchan lechem hapanim (earth since bread is brought forth from the earth) is in the North.  The Torah (water) is in the Holy of Holies which is in the West, and the incense (air) is placed on a golden altar in the East.  From the Torah's perspective these four elements come from the Yud Key Vav Key, the Holiest of Holy Names of G-d.  In the Torah the Yud is connected to the aravot (willow branches) amongst the four species which controls the sources of water in the world.  The first Hey is connected to the lulav (date palm) amongst the four species which controls the sources of fire in the world including representing the wisdom of a Talmud Chacham such as Yonatan ben Uziel who used to burn birds with fire if they flew over his head while learning Torah.  The Vav is connected to the Hadassim (myrtle) branches which have a fragrance but no taste.  They therefore control the sources of Air in the world.  And the Final Hey is connected to the Etrog (the fruit which tastes like the bark of the same etrog tree) which controls the sources of dirt or earth in the world because the etrog tree is the only tree that grew in the way that G-d commanded the dirt of the world which was to grow trees whose fruit tasted like its bark (See Bereishit 1 dealing with the 2nd Statement for the 3rd day of Creation when G-d commanded the earth to bear forth fruit-bearing trees bearing fruit.)

When G-d created the world, he also made a mirror world for the Kochot HaTumah (Powers of Impurity).  If He had not done so, there would be no free will.  So the mirror world of Evil has to parallel the World of Qedushah.  What is intriguing is to delve into is that there are only two places on the entire planet where the Geography matches the directions of the compass from which the Four States of Matter (Elements) manifest themselves in the World.
So where in the world is there....1. a fiery desert attached to the deserts of the world in the South?

2. arable agricultural land in the North? ...
3. A Great Sea or Ocean to the West ?.... and
4. a Dry wind that blows in the springtime or the Fall from the East???

We thank G-d that here in Eretz Yisrael the Eye of HaShem rests on the Land of Israel all year round, for if His Eye did not, the four forces for Evil in the world would surely inundate us here in Eretz HaQodesh.  But alas there is one place on the planet where the Eye of HaShem does not rest all year round, and it is a place filled with taivah (lust) of the heart, taivah (lust) of the eyes,  Seichel (intellectual thought) not attached to qedushah, and the essence of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil itself which expresses itself in gaivah (arrogance), in short, all four forces for evil in the world.  Take a guess where that place is?  Think of the State and not just one of its cities.

Update #1:  We have a dispute on this post that the name Santa Ana which describes the hot, east winds in the Fall which blow through Southern California may or may not etymologically be derived from "Satanic" winds as described in the post and in my first comment on this post, or the name may be derived from Saint Anne, the mother OF the mother OF the Xtian mangod.  In Spanish her name would be Santa Ana.  In Hebrew her name would simply be Channah, lehavdil.  I stick by my research that the name was originally derived from an older Native American word for Satanic or Devilish.  The Spanish then translated the older Indian name into "the Satanic Winds" before The Roman Church changed it to Santa Ana.  Yet, there are a lot of Catholics in Southern California, and they in my estimation cleaned up the pagan origin of the name of that East wind.  This is a constant in Roman Catholic history.  They take a pagan holiday or concept, adopt it, put lipstick, rouge, and eyeliner on the pig, and pronounce it kosher.   They even have a story that St. Anne immaculately conceived St. Mary who immaculately conceived Yoshke.  So one human woman conceives a demigoddess who conceives a god.  I am sorry.  I am not cleaning up the Catholic Church's messes anymore especially after what I heard confidentially went on at King David's tomb on the Greek Pentecost this past Sunday from a reliable source.  Hint:  There were no Greeks at the tomb on Sunday, their supposed Pentecost.  They, the Greeks, were forced by the Catholics to have a little shindig for Shacharit on Monday.   The Catholics had their own ghastly ceremony at the tomb on Sunday.  I can't say anymore about this until details are verified.  So on this blog the name Santa Ana Winds has a pagan origin, and they the Catholics cleaned up the name and made it into the mother OF the mother OF their god......Nice....no, not so nice.   

more in progress, probably to be an even longer post

Did you grow up in Los Angeles? I did. Please get the story straight. "Santa Ana" winds are named as such for the inland city of Santa Ana which they hail from, east of LA. Santa Ana is Spanish for "Saint Anne" (Santa Monica is Spanish for...). That is all. There's nothing demonic about the name or the wind, which is indeed hot and dry. It can also occur any time the wind reverses from the normal coast to inland direction, just like here in Israel. It just happens that such winds in the winter bring mild warmth instead of oppressively high heat.

Shimshon: If what you say is true, then why does Wikipedia agree with my definition or translation of the word(s), Santa Ana?? Scroll down to the paragraph about etymology of the name Santa Ana.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Ana_winds

The most well-accepted explanation for the name Santa Ana winds is that it is derived from the Santa Ana Canyon in Orange County, one of the many locations the winds blow intensely.[1][4] However this may very well be a misnomer. Newspaper references to the name Santa Ana winds date as far back as 1886. By 1893, controversy had broken out over whether this name was a corruption of the Spanish term Satana or Satanás. However, newspaper mention of the term "Satanás" in reference to the winds did not begin appearing until more than 60 years later. A possible explanation is that the Spanish language merges two identical vowels in elision. Thus the Spanish pronunciation of the phrase "Santa Ana" is the same as "Satana".
Los Angeles A to Z (by Leonard & Dale Pitt) credits the Santa Ana Canyon in Orange County as the origin of the name Santa Ana winds.[23]
Another attempt at explanation of the name claims that it derives from a Native American term for "devil wind" that was altered by the Spanish into the form "Satanás" (meaning Satan), and then later corrupted into "Santa Ana." However, an authority on Native American language claims this term "Santana" never existed in that tongue.[4]
A third explanation places the origin of the term Santa Ana winds with an Associated Press correspondent stationed in Santa Ana in 1902, who documented the name "Santa Ana winds," or possibly, mistook the term "Satana" for "Santa Ana."[24]
Dr. George Fischbeck was a widely viewed newscaster in Southern California in the 1970s and 1980s who helped to familiarize Californians with the winds, which he called the "Satana winds". He regularly explained that they were not confined to Orange County (where Santa Ana is located), but occurred throughout Southern California. He delighted in the symbolism of the devil's breath playing havoc with Southern California and the fact the winds are "hot" .

Yasher koach thus far and I can't wait to read and delve into your upcoming post. P.S. if one also looks at the geological websites one will see that the earth is quaking, shaking and brimming... There have been in the past two weeks and onward major earthquake activity and volcanic activity around the whole globe.
Major quakes in Japan and in Alaska as well as the North Pole. The Pacific Ocean. Arizona, California and Utah. Illinois and The English Channel, too. Volcanic activity has been seen that they say have not erupted since 100- 1000 years ago all over the globe.
Isn't there something, Dov, (I don't remember the source) about Hashem shaking the earth at the End of Days- an awakening?
Please quote source, Dov.

"The most well-accepted explanation for the name Santa Ana winds is that it is derived from the Santa Ana Canyon in Orange County, one of the many locations the winds blow intensely."

Exactly. If you want to point to less-well accepted theories, by all means. But at least accept my point as true. It is the most commonly-accepted explanation, and the only one I ever commonly heard or used growing up, Fischbeck (who I remember) notwithstanding. The Santa Ana Freeway does not technically start or end in Santa Ana either. It's just a name, even if not technically accurate. We called them Santa Ana winds because they came from the east, and Santa Ana is in the vicinity of their origin or path. Santa Ana is also a very working class area. So, it's even a form of pejorative. Nothing good comes from there, not even the weather. As someone who grew up in Beverly Hills, I have heard similar epithets uttered. Maybe there is some earlier diabolical origin, but at some point it was lost to most of us and had no connection at all to the usage I encountered growing up there in the 70s or 80s.

Actually, Dov, I think that what you are saying does not reflect reality at all. True, Hashem's Eye rests on Eretz Yisrael from the beginning of the year till the end. Still, man has free will, and it is a well known axiom that" Eretz Yisrael Bli Torah hee keguf bli neshama": Eretz Yisrael without Torah is as a body without a neshama. And then there is the concept of Tum'at Haaretz; and the fact that the Seven Nations had to be obliterated, because they were the most Tameh of all in this Land that has similar configuration to California. Very interesting observation there, BTW.

And the fact that Tel-Aviv strives to be the capital of Tum'ah of the world. That Tum'ah finds such a fertile ground in Israel. That the most undressed girls that visited King David' Tomb yesterday were A) Jewish American girls, and B) Israeli women. There is a very strong spirit of Tum'ah in Eretz Yisrael, it is very easy to succumb to it, the Leftist Israeli society is permeated by it; proof is that Sodom, and Gomorrah, which had to be destroyed by Hashem, were right here, in the Holy Land.

The bottom line is, I think, that because of the extreme sensitivity of this Land to tum'ah, Hashem had to give us the Torah, which is to be applied first and foremost in Eretz Yisrael. Because without Her we FALL here. But with Her, and with our eyes turned to Hashem, we can scale the greatest heights of Kedushah.

And by the way there is a very strong Jewish community in L.A. I was there this Pessach and I can tell you that the most spiritual synagogue I know in the world, besides our Holy Places, of course, is right there, in L.A. I was there for Lag Baomer: beautiful! For Pessach, for Succoth: beautiful! When Jews connect to Torah they can rise up very high there too. I only wish we had a shul like the Happy Minyan of Pico here in Israel!

But of course, NO comparison to Eretz Hakodesh, Yerushalayim, Har Habayit, Kever David, Mearat Hamachpelah, etc. Lehavdil. As a matter of fact on Shevii shel Pessach, at seudat Mashiach, I gave them a few words, and told them just that: that L.A. is a TRAP, that it feels like Eretz Yisrael but it's not! That they have to come here. If only those people were to transplant their amazing ruach right here, what an amazing shul we would have....!

With Kever David in the news recently, it may be interesting to note that that site hosted a Franciscan monastery, which was called "San Francisco".

Rav Berger's newsletter mentioned that this was noted by both R' Meshulam of Volterra and R' Ovadia MiBartenura.

Isaiah 24:18-20

18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the terror shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the trap; for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth do shake; 19 The earth is broken, broken down, the earth is crumbled in pieces, the earth trembleth and tottereth; 20 The earth reeleth to and fro like a drunken man, and swayeth to and fro as a lodge; and the transgression thereof is heavy upon it, and it shall fall, and not rise again.

Shimshon: I will add an update later in the main post reflecting the other opinion which you espouse.....after I check out thoroughly who Saint Anne was. Apparently she was Yoshke's grandmother, for Mary the so called betulah was her daughter. But, from what I can see, there are two reasonable, competing opinions on what the Santa Ana winds are, and since the debate has been going on for about 100 years, we are not going to resolve the entire issue here and now.

DS: I actually heartily agree with you. Eretz Yisrael is what you make it. Without Torah, life can be as degenerate here as life is in San Francisco. There really is one major difference though, and this is it: It is the Messianic potential in years 49 and 50. In California, the streets will be taken over by zombies (the walking reprobates) and witches. Here they, the Erev Rav, will all be dead when we reach level 50 because Eretz Yisrael has upon it the Eyes of HaShem.

Quite honestly I didn't read anything in Dov's post that isn't a reflection of reality, but just not on our every day level. As I read, his words were definitions of spiritual reality. I'm sure Dov plans to explain how this gets funneled into what we are seeing occurring around us (as he explained about the 49th/50th levels). The Torah says that where there is great Kedusha there is also great Tuma. New York is a perfect example of this axiom. Boro Park, Monsey, Monroe, Wmsbrg, are all areas of very frum Jews (leave politics out for the moment).

The Zohar (Chssidus which is based on the esoteric), I believe, says that some of the holiest neshomas at the shattering of the keilim fell the farthest (into tuma). The Kaballah describes in much greater depth and detail much of the written/oral Torah. We need someone versed in Kaballah (which we have here in Yerushalayim near the shuk) to elucidate. About Tel Aviv, there sits a deposit of Tuma. Since Israel has been/is an umbilical cord from America, 'NY' is replicated here.

But Hashem will break the attachment, as we see America dwindling more and more; that means Israel will rise above and be able to survive and prosper with Mashiach leading us. Its part of the process.

Here is an extreme example, but sometimes an extreme example helps us to see things more clearly when the circumstances are not as extreme. And by the way, this is a true story. About four or five years ago in late June, my wife went to her sister's wedding out in Los Angeles, California. Actually, the wedding was in Santa Monica near the place where Tom Lehrer used to spend Chanukah in Santa Monica wearing sandals, lighting candles by the Sea. The wedding was actually on a green space in someone's beautiful backyard in Santa Monica on a Sunday, I believe. So the gathering for the wedding was on Erev Shabbat at an Orthodox Shul in Santa Monica or actually right next door to Santa Monica. Everyone went to this shul for Shabbat (Friday night and Shabbat day), and the davening was wonderful. The acoustics inside the shul were excellent so that you could hear the entire Torah reading without straining your ears. And the Shul was ornate and beautiful on the inside. The space seemed to be a very holy place.

After shul on Shabbat morning, the Gabai threw open the front doors.....What a sight! Right outside the doors to the shul is Venice Beach and the Pacific Ocean. Walking in front of the shul are half-naked men and women showing off more skin than clothing coverage....right there, right in front of the Shul!! Apparently Venice Beach boardwalk is very close to Santa Monica because that is where Lisa thought she was. It was a Zoo to behold. Hawkers selling shells, skulls and crossbones, jewelry of all sorts. And yes, the shapely, half nude if not 3/4 nude men and women walking on or near the Boardwalk. My wife was with my daughter and she could not walk fast enough back to the hotel. People smooching on park benches. For a Shabbat morning walk it was difficult to digest. Imagine how many Sukkot would go by, people carrying their Four Species to the Shul. I am sure the davening was par excellance'. Beautiful Full Hallel, Circuits around the Bimah with the Four Species (mentioned in the article above), Torah reading, Haftarah reading about the Mt. of Olives splitting in Two, Musaph, Ketoret, Aleinu, and OUT THE DOOR AGAIN INTO THE ZOO! Yes, this Shul has a minyan on every Shabbat and Tomtov, and I am 100% sure it is Qadosh. I am sure that there is a regular crowd there that has been going there to daven for decades. And carrying those Four Species home...Well, at least they fit in well at the zoo. I mean between the Skulls and Crossbones, lava lamps, hadassim, psychedelic Jewelry, lulavim, sea shells and starfish necklaces, etrogim, everyone fit in with each other in the melting pot of religious and semi-religious trinkets just fine......well maybe not. The one thing that would have definitely changed while doing Tikkun Olam on Venice Beach is that while 30 years ago, the couple smooching on the bench was likely a boy and a girl, the couple smooching on the bench today would be a man smooching with who knows whom or even what. In short, it has deteriorated drastically, but slowly enough over 30 years so that we are like that proverbial frog that does not know that it is getting fried or cooked by ever increasing heat.

It is really the decision of those who live there who have to decide if this is where G-d wants them to be as the world around them spirals into the abyss below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah. Just remember, at the end of it all, it is from Tzion that the Torah will go forth, and the word of HaShem from Yerushalayim. The Tikkun Olam is more effectively done from here.

I realize this was an extreme example, but we should realize that in the dispersion of our exile perhaps the last place that HaShem wants us to be at the Very End of Olam HaZeh (unless we are doing kiruv) is in California. These thoughts are personal, and surely there will be those that will disagree.

I researched the name ''Santa Ana'' and came up with a link verifying Dov's ''devil wind'' - According to Gettemy, alternate terms soon appeared, including "santana", claimed to be derived from an Indian term for "devil wind" that the Spanish first altered into "Satanas" (Satan) and which was then subsequently corrupted into "Santa Ana" [http://web.atmos.ucla.edu/~fovell/LATimes_SantaAna.html].

If you want to go with the other view, which to me doesn't sit well: ''The name's meaning is Saint Ana. According to certain Christian traditions, the mother of the Virgin Mary was Ana.''

I believe Dov is correct.

Ladies and Gentleman, it's not about (just) making Aliya to come live in Israel, it's about conquering Eretz Yisroel.

This begins with conquering Eretz Yisroel within each and every one of us (The Baal Shem Tov teaches that "Eretz" also means "Ratzon" or "Will", and "Israel" means also "Yashar-Kel" - "straight to G-d"). When a person's will and desires are for other then G-d, then he is in Chutz Laaretz (and is actually giving away land from Eretz Yisroel R"L). when a person conquers his or her will and desire and makes them "straight to G-d", then he conquered Eretz Yisroel.

And the key to Eretz Yisroel is Yericho - the "smell", "vehericho be-yiras Hashem", as it says about Moshiach, that "Murach v'din" - "he smells and determines". Oh, no time to elaborate more. Moshiach Now!

I decided not to post a link to a pagan chart with the exact same four elements and directions of the compass. These charts are easy to find on the Internet under search words "Four Elements Directions". All the Wiccan charts show the same info but from the point of view of the Sitra Achra. Same elements...same directions but for the purpose of the Sitra Achra which is to have power or to obtain power like a god.

There is no need to research this further, because one does not want to become "enticed" as Chavah was enticed to this forbidden fruit of having powers like G-d Himself. The only reason for seeing their chart is to see proof that the Side of Darkness is a carbon copy of the Side of Qedushah with totally wrong kavanot So I will not be linking to their charts.

I just updated the post to take into account the alternative view that the name Santa Ana is derived from the Spanish name for St. Anne, the mother of the demigoddess Mary, who may have also been immaculately conceived..huh, but who was the mother of the mangod Yoshke. You can read the update in the post. In Short, Shimshon, most likely the name has a pagan origin from an older Indian world for Devilish or Satanic. The Spanish originally changed the name of the Wind to The Satanic Wind (Satanas in Spanish), and the name of the canyon it howls through therefore would have been bestowed with the same name. Then the Roman Church likely DID clean it up, in their view, by renaming it after the mother of the mother of their god. That is how the Catholic Church cleans up messes. They have Xmas, the birthday of their god, during a pagan Winter Solstice festival originally established for Nimrod's birthday. Nothing is beneath them when, in their view, they think that nothing is above them.

Dov, I agree with you and I don't thing it is extreme.. I lived in California in Orange Country and the 15 years I lived there most of the time I was sick I could not hold food down and was throwing up. I did not had a bad live there but I was never really happy there. When I came to Israel the first time I knew I came home and guess what, I did not throw up.. I made Aliyha with my husband and kids about 5 years later after returning to California. I went to California 2 years ago for a wedding and I still feel the same about this place. California is lacking a soul. Reading about the winds is very interesting and looking forward to more. I also want to mention since I was a child I could feel was is negative till today, and that place is negative is many ways. Dov, one question and you mentioned about Chamsin here is Israel we also call it sha-rav does it also have a meaning? Talking about me feeling negative energy since I was a child when I was seeing monks I was getting very frighten.. What you writing about Catholics it makes sense with their fake religion..

The hot easterly wind is properly and historically called: SANTANA, not Santa Ana! Sailors have a phrase, "Beware the devil wind Santana." Refer to Two Years Before The Mast, published in 1840, by Richard Henry Dana Jr., He was here. Dana Point is named after him.

When he was anchored of San Pedro, Mister Dana even refers to a "Santana Rig" where an anchor is connected to a buoy, and the ship then ties up to the buoy. Then, when they see "The devil wind Santana" indicated by dust blowing in from the east, they can cut the line between the buoy and heat out to the safety of the sea. Later, when the wind subsides, they can return and retrieve their valuable anchor, chain and line.

Dr. George Fischbeck was one of the first and most popular weathermen around Southern California in the 1970s. He used "Santana Winds" widely and this indeed was based on the vientos de Satanas, or devil's breath. This devilish wind blows off the desert (the home of the devil in Southern California lore) towards the ocean.

The oldest newspaper mentions (early 20th century) have it "Santa Ana winds". One can find "Sant' Ana" and "Sant'Ana" winds in a few books. Merriam Websters 3rd Unabridged and Random House Dictionary favor contraction as the origin of the Santana spelling. Evidence about the pattern of Spanish language contractions or elisions lies in the name of a certain Spanish settlement a short distance south of Los Angeles: San Diego The name Spanish name Diego is apparently derived from Santiago < Santa Iago < Sanctus Jacobus (Saint James). The devil etymology seems quite spurious, a folk etymology, something we humans invent to liven up the unvarnished, but uncertain truth.

Where did the "santana" story start? According to Times staff writer Bob Gettemy (May 7, 1967), it may have originated in or near Santa Ana itself. In 1902, he reported, a "Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce committee was formed to discourage the use of the term 'Santa Anas'" after the name was applied to "a particularly vicious windstorm" by a news wire service. "The committee took the position that the name of its city should not be synonymous with a wind and asked newspapers to cease and desist," he wrote, but "at the time there apparently were no other names extant except, perhaps, for some unprintable ones."

According to Gettemy, alternate terms soon appeared, including "santana", claimed to be derived from an Indian term for "devil wind" that the Spanish first altered into "Satanas" (Satan) and which was then subsequently corrupted into "Santa Ana". However, Gettemy notes, "a recognized authority on Indian language says no such word as Santana ever existed."

Neshama,

Debkafile: “Followers of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant were spotted for the first time in the Gaza Strip this week, debkafile’s military sources report. Their arrival on Israel’s border was confirmed as a division-strength IDF force launched its large-scale “Turning Point 2015” exercise for repelling Islamist cross-border incursions. The Islamist group which has established a substantial anti-Hamas presence in the Gaza Strip is Ansar al Dawa al-Islamia, renamed “Supporters of the Islamic State of Jerusalem.”

Israeli, Egyptian and Hamas’ military sources are all concerned to make light of this development. When asked, they say that the group’s nature and scope have not yet been evaluated. Western and Middle East governments took the same tack two years ago, when ISIS first embarked on its calamitous course in Syria.”

Comment: Sort of catchy isn’t it – Supporters of the Islamic State of Jerusalem?

Zechariah 12:3 points to Jerusalem as a cup of drunkenness. Arabs lust for it, the Vatican covets it, the US doesn’t know what to do with it and the final war of this age will be over it.

But only the Jewish people will ultimately have it. Amos 9:15.

Yerushalayim is the city of David not Esau and not Yishmael.

What caused me to laugh? the incredible amount of ink that was invested on one word...or two..santa ana... especially in light of the important, deep, spiritual message that is being given here, the fact that people became so obsessed with refuting or defending the origin of the word, as given by the author brought me some much needed comic relief. I hope you will have the next installment online soon.

Dov,
It's interesting to note that Eretz Yisrael and California are not only spiritual opposites, but also physical.
On the latitude of Jerusalem, the place on land which is the closest you can get to the point on the globe which is diametrically opposite us, is in California (a bit south of Los Angeles). This leads to an important observation about where they get their spiritual powers from.

Beur Haradal to Pirkei DeRabbi Eliezer brings a quote from the Ramchal to explain Chachmei Yisrael’s astronomical model (Psachim 94b), where at sunset the sun moves above the dome of the sky, orbits in the opposite direction, and at sunrise comes back out in the east - which is notably refuted by reality as we can see it.
According to the Ramchal, the reality we can see is only the external manifestation of the true, internal reality, which is what Chazal are describing. The visible sun gets its essence from the real sun. In true reality the earth is a static ball with Jerusalem at the top, the sun comes out from over the dome in the east at sunrise as visible from E”Y, at noon is directly above E”Y, and at sunset goes back over the dome in the west at sunset. At night in E”Y, when the real sun is hidden above the dome, the physical sun that is visible in the areas of the globe that are below the horizon of E”Y is deriving its essence from a completely different internality, not the holy reality of E”Y.

California on the average shares only 2 hours of daylight with us – most of the time they are under the sun of “the other side”!

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 2:12-21 HaShem Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled), For all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty, and all the oaks of Bashan, For all the towering mountains and all the high hills, For every lofty tower and every fortified wall, For every trading ship and every stately vessel. The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; HaShem alone will be exalted in that day, And the idols will totally disappear. Men will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from dread of HaShem and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. In that day men will throw away to the rodents and bats their idols of silver and idols of gold, which they made to worship. They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from dread of HaShem and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.

On the issue of the actual name for the Santana winds being Santana, not to be confused with Carlos, I am asking the resident expert on the Spanish language, my sister, to explain it to me since the argument about whether the winds are named after St. Anne or Satan (Sanatanas or Satanas) has been going on in LA for over 120 years. Two things for sure that I can find out with 100% accuracy:

1. Until the 1960s the winds were called the Santana winds. Southern Californians born in the 1950s all agree that the common name for these winds were the Santana winds not the Santa Ana winds. LA was a lot smaller in the 1950s. Any east wind over what was then LA would NOT have traveled through Santa Ana Canyon to arrive in LA. Since the canyon is much further south in Orange Co. (near Anaheim, I believe), the winds through the canyon would have arrived in LA from the south as a South Wind (not the east as an east wind) which is NOT the case with the Santana winds. They don't come in from the South. Plus St. Anne's day on the Roman Catholic calendar of the saints is in on July 25th or 26th which is at a time of the year that these winds do NOT blow. Also, LA is full of newcomers since the 1960s, chock full of transients. They all think that the the name has always been Santa Ana for the winds, but they have no idea what the older residents really know about this, that the winds were called Santana before 1960.

2. The first literary reference to these winds is the Santana Winds from R. H. Dana's book (dealing with his two year personal voyage to California) from 1840 which was 9 years before the Calif. Gold Rush of 1849, Two Years Before the Mast, in which he is quoted in the book as saying, "Beware of the Devil Wind Santana." I doubt he was referring to St. Anne when he wrote that. I doubt it very much. Anyway no more discussion of the issue unless you can solve this debate.

Oh speaking of this debate, read and enjoy the discussion in Wiki: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Talk:Santana_wind

Considering that there are hardened positions on this issue for the last 120 years, there is no need to continue to discuss this issue here unless incontrovertible evidence can be offered proving or disproving which position is correct. Unless that can be presented (by all means present it if you have it), perhaps we should close down the discussion of this, and simply refer you to the discussion on WikiTalk above which has been going on in newspapers and the Internet for the last 120 years!! If they can't prove or disprove one or the other in 120 years, we won't be able to prove or disprove it here on the blog.

Thanks Rav Dov.
I went to LA, was struck by how similar to Tel Aviv it looked, and how many Israelis lived there.
Take your time on the post, please don't stress it.
When I think of LA, I think of the Movie Industry, and the Crips/Bloods gangs, wonder what part they have to play in this?
Also the very name of California, it's discovery by the West in 1542 and 1579, and the name of Los Angeles, plus the fairly well-known book written about it, "City of Quartz?"
Also pertinent that it has a drought now?

Dov and Neshama, I think it's the quote from Yeshayahu. There are earthquakes happening on the volcanic zones right on some of the steps/plateaus in the oceans all over. A major increase in activity is being seen daily. Many rare sights are pluming smoke from volcanoes as well as earthquakes - 7.8 and 8.1 in place that have not seen this activity in decades as well as hundreds of years. No coincidence for me, yet I was wondering if this is an element of the shaking at the End of Days? What do you think, Dov?

Something Else Coming In September: A UN Resolution Establishing A Palestinian State

There has been a lot of talk about things that are going to happen in September, but something that has been almost totally overlooked is the fact that the UN Security Council is likely to be voting on a UN resolution which will establish a Palestinian state at that time.

Right now, France is working on a proposed resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to the Palestinians, would declare that a divided Jerusalem is the capital of both Israel and a Palestinian state, and would set the 1967 borders as the baseline for future negotiations which would establish the final borders between the two nations. It is being reported that France will submit this resolution for a vote after the 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on the 15th of September...

Leah, I found an interesting old post Shaking the Tree on Jewish End of Days, that includes a side note about earthquakes and the ingathering vis a vis shaking the tree. It was an incident then but today is a rampant occurrence. It's amazing how most of the continents are full of dormant (?) volcanos. This may be how these continents were originally formed out of the earth. As one can see new islands being formed by volcanos under the sea.

An interesting video at Tomer Devorah goes into depth about the disintegration of our natural elements, seas, sea life, bees, and air quality in the world. Amazing to listen to the speakers dedication. I cannot attach a link here or I'll lose my post. However, I recommend all to view that video. I can post the link in a separate message.

EM: It occurred to me today that there might be some new viewers of the blog who have not reviewed "Gilui's" chart: Here is a link to his chart and his blog or Essay on Yovel

Notice from the chart that 5727 was both a potential Yovel year and the first year of the 48th Yovel cycle since Ezra HaSofer. The year 5776 will be another potential Yovel year and the beginning or first year of the 49th Yovel cycle or Malkhut that is in Malkhut Yovel cycle since Ezra HaSofer. Since the end of that Yovel cycle (the 49th cycle) will have to be a true Yovel (a sanctified 50th year which is NOT the beginning of the next cycle which itself would be the 50th cycle), a Sanhedrin at the same madreigah as the Sanhedrin of Ezra HaSofer will have to start the count of 49 years or 7 Shmittah cycles sometime in the year 5776. That would almost require both or either Eliyahu HaNavi and/ or Mashiach to establish that Sanhedrin in 5776 since a Yovel cycle MUST be counted from the first year of that cycle so that the 50th year can be sanctified and separated from the next cycle, the 50th cycle. Keep in mind that that 50th year, in the year 5776 + 50 which is 5826, would have to be the 50th year or Yovel year of the 49th Yovel cycle since Ezra. Since Rav Chaim Vital stresses the fact that Mashiach ben David is found at the Gateway to the 50th, that Gateway is between NOW and next Shavuot (or Yom Yerushalayim which is one week before that).

Hope you got this!

First of all the US is behind ISIS's creation, a bloodthirsty monster that has killed countless innocents: it is only fair that those behind its creation should be bitten as well.

Second, Kerry is actively supporting the enemies of Israel and Hashem. It serves him right that he got wounded this past Sunday, May 31, just as the battle for King David's tomb was reaching a fever pitch, and because of Israel' enemies ( do I need to elaborate???) Jewish rights were not respected there. Malchut Yisrael was assaulted, in return Malchut Edom is being assaulted. The battle for Mashiach has truly begun in Shamayim!

John Kerry Bible Commands America To Proctect Muslims From Global Warming
.
Kerry begins this speech by stating that someone named ‘Shriek’ had drafted a strategy for American and Muslim relations. Who this Shriek is exactly is unknown, but apparently his words ‘religion matters’ is ‘a mantra in the State Dept’.

Kerry continues stating that ‘our faiths’ referring to Christianity and Islam are ‘inextricably linked’.

Kerry’s words are bizarre, to say the least. It’s basically a half-baked attempt to forge an affinity for Islam, and stating that the U.S. is now acquiescing to the Muslim Brotherhood, who has successfully infiltrated the United States to a great degree.

Stating that we have an obligation to protect Muslims from global warming seems like something out of the Twilight Zone series, only he’s not writing for T.V. He expects you to jump on the Muslim train…

Who cannot see the following?

1. the world challenging Klal Yisrael for "ownership" of King David's tomb at Malkhut that is in Malkhut at our 49th level of purity (and after the 49th Shavuot since the 6 Day War) and

2. The first triple crown winner in 37 years named American Pharoah with the O interchanged with the A at Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah in America. congratulations to the Torah observant Jew, Achmed Zayat, who owns the horse. And may be blessed to give much tzedakah from his prize money and advertising rights for his horse. A little note in his family history reveals that his father was Anwar Sadat's family physician...while the Rambam was Saladin's personal physician 850 years ago! Good things happen when leaders of Egypt choose Jews to be their doctors! Saladin rid the Holy Land of the Crusaders, and Sadat made a piece treaty with Israel which actually has lasted on paper for 36 years even though he himself was assassinated by the Muslim Bros. for signing such a treaty.

Back to Pharoah: The O interchanged with an A is really just a phonetic mistake, Pharaoh is spelled Pey Reish Ayin Hey. So the A represents the Ayin in the name Pharaoh while the O represents the Cholom dot which follows the Ayin. So in the end the Cholom was placed before the Ayin in the "mistaken" name Pharo'ah. Think Paru'ah which means Wild Man or Woman which can also be used to describe Yishma'el who is called Pereh Adam, a Wild of a Man. This seems to fit Obama's personality more than JUST the name Pharaoh. Obama is the King of KAOS without Maxwell Smart fighting him. He IS the Man of Wild after all.

One other thing. I am from SoCal actually and just came back from a trip visiting family (so good to be back in Jlem, Baruch Hashem!).
The Santa Anas are actually an interesting blend of air and fire elements, since they generally bring fire in their wake - after a hot summer, things start to cool off, and then the Santa Anas bring back super hot winds to the area. Everything is already dry and there are lots of wildfires, made more difficult to contain by the dry brush and high winds. Everyone knows those months, even more than the summer itself, to be "fire season."
The other thing about SoCal is the gashmius there is incredible. I have said for years that it is the Teiva of Beauty city (Vegas is teivat niuf, sexual lust and NYC is teivat mamon, for money). Really each city has aspects of the other bc they all go together, but one is dominant.
Like Dov's discussion of Shabbos in Santa Monica, when I spent Shabbos in Hancock Park, the most ultra-orthodox neighborhood in LA, I would be going the opposite direction Motzei Shabbos heading back to South Central (Univ. Southern California) of people in fancy cars, blasting music, wearing almost nothing. It was extremely jarring to say the least. Not to mention the billboards.
Anyway being there, I feel like the illusion of beauty is so strong, but if you just looked twice you could almost see the mirage fading, and really everything is very spiritually disgusting. I recall a discussion years ago at friends I was Bat Bayit (meaning I lived there for a few weeks), where the oldest daughter was begging her father to buy her diamond earrings like everyone else had, and this at the best Bet Yaakov high school in the city. I also discovered some major kashrut issues there on this trip, to say the least. Everything looks tip top but look past the surface and it isn't necessarily so.
Interestingly, on both of the last trips there were minor earthquakes, as if Hashem was reminding me to get the heck out of there!

So here's one that's been on my mind for some time. The SCOTUS will make their "human" ruling on toevah/mishgav zochar "marriages" at the end of June. With the liberal views that are on that court as well as the liberal take over of the US it would seem that they will most likely pass this mess.
So, Dov, in my mind I think that if they pass this nightmare it would, for lack of a better expression, drop us down quite a few notches into the toilet. It would push us into a new realm of tumah/shaar. Do you think it would push the US to fall faster or it would just be another element of tumah on an already sinking path?

In our model of the Menorah in the South representing the Wisdom or Binah of the Torah scholar, it has to be understood that Reishit Chochmah Yirat HaShem, The Beginning of Wisdom is the Fear of HaShem. It is the one cure for Gaivah of the Sitra Achra. In this model the Fire of negative side is the Bonfire of the Vanities. Now that would be New York City. I think that Gaivah is the number one problem in New York. They even called a famous baseball player, their Pride...even though that player may have been an all around decent fellow which he was. (I heard that from Rav Moshe Aharon Stern zt"l whose father was Lou Gehrig's accountant.) In a sense though, it is really Water which controls the raging fire. This would explain why Sheivet Reuven, who is compared to water, leads the Tribes who face South of the Mishkan. The Tribes and the directions that they face are a tikkun for defeating those four evil forces in the world.

Leah: I wouldn't say "with the liberal views" on the court. Instead I would say "with the liberal Jews" on the court. Sadly, this is what will bring America down below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah when Ruth Buzzy Ginsburgh and Elana "please don't call her" Kagan literally lead America into uncharted territory where no nation has survived before, the 50th level of impurity. Making homosexual marriages the Law of the Land will be the final nail in the coffin. It is in the Gemorrah in Chullin (Sandy I and II) that this would be the case. Curiously it is at the end of June when there is also a deadline for completing negotiations with Persia...... Maybe this is the message that it took a Jew to create the conditions for American Pharo'ah to succeed in his mission.

Re Nir ben Artzi


'' I am in awe of what is happening in the world and the accuracy of what Rav Nir Ben Artzi, shlita, has been saying for years. Anyone who disagrees is blind, and is using it as an excuse to not follow Hashem’s messages as given through this great Rav.

The weather and natural phenomenon for instance is not just severe, but has been record setting as never seen before. The Rav told us that this would happen weeks ago and he has been totally accurate even about world events.

He said in this message: Within two to three weeks, these countries will have the worst natural disasters and conflict with other countries.

..
The Rav as well as the FC individuals have said things that they could not have known at all. It does give us confidence that their messages are coming from a Higher Source.
..

The Absolute TruthMay 31, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Rav Nir Ben Artzi, shlita, is a Mekubal, a mystic (Mekubal is one who knows Kabbalah, the mystical side of reality -- Google it to get a much deeper insight). The significance of Rav Ben Artzi is that he has been telling us what is coming up in the world with such accuracy that one can not question his predictions.

Examples that are more than guesses include him telling us in 2001 about the disengagement that will happen in Gaza in 2006. He told us in 2001 that the next president of the US would be a black man (which occurred in 2008). He told us about two weeks before it happened that Morsi, the president of Egypt, would be deposed. He told us about the upheaval coming in Syria, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon and other countries before it happened. He told us about activities in Gaza before it was known to the world. He has been very accurate about weather, natural disasters, plane, train and ship disasters. He told us about the financial problems that were coming before the fact. Recently, he told us that Netanyahu would remain as the PM of Israel even though all the polls were telling us that he was falling behind and probably would be out.

Since I have been watching him for years, I could write quite a long list of predictions that came true. He also is keeping us current on the worsening of conditions in many countries, including the US.

If you are a Hebrew speaker, go to his website and read more about him:
http://tairneri.co.il/

One thing to know is that his weekly messages are transcribed from a Hebrew lecture that he gives generally Motzei Shabbos (Saturday night). He does this impromptu without notes which means that there are many items that are off the top of his head, and not as organized as the written message that I present every week. This makes it even more mystical that he can tell us so much information as if he were getting it from a heavenly source. Why do I say that? Because we are given a test of prophecy in the Torah (Deuteronomy 18:15 - 22) that the Rav satisfies very accurately.

Whether one thinks he is a prophet or not is not important. The fact that I am in touch with people around the world who have been helped by him for years, including some of my readers who went to see him and he was able to tell them things about themselves that he could not have known. I have been greatly impressed with the Rav's wisdom and insight into the world including how he tells us what King Moshiach is doing and that he was already crowned in heaven and will be on Earth soon.

Speaking about water controlling the raging fire, water is the one thing they say there will be a war about, in this area. Jordan and the PLO are all in need of more water. We don't have too many natural sources here, the Jordan River and it's source which I believe is in Syria? And the Kinneret, which HaShem fills every winter with our rains, but that is for us. Just recently Israel doubled the water supply to Gaza. Gaza has no source of water.

RE: Nir Ben Artzi...

I translated many, many of his early messages into English and created a blog for them. In the beginning, he was spot-on quite a few things, but over time, this did not bear out. Yes, you could say that any negative prediction he made could have been cancelled through teshuva, etc.

But, about the same time, I came across the FC messages and discovered that there is actually quite a bit of discrepancy between the two. The autistic people slam the government and the army based on the anti-Torah agendas of those at the top while Nir Ben Artzi praises them. They condemn the Erev Rav and warn Jews about them. Nir Ben Artzi has never spoken of the Erev Rav to my knowledge.

They've also spoken a great deal about WW3 and have said there will be nuclear explosions. Nir Ben Artzi denies this. So, for me, it came down to whom to believe, the autistic people or Nir Ben Artzi. The FC messages back up every prediction with sources from the Tanakh and Talmud. Nir Ben Artzi doesn't. So, I stopped reading his stuff. I don't consider it reliable or in any way compatible with the FC messages.

Blogger Neshama said...

After reading Rav Ben Artzi each week, even though he speaks of negative things occurring in the world, it is with a warmth that inspires. I am not left with a dread feeling. He says things in an explanation way, that we should improve, with a sense that teshuva is needed, and that HaShem loves his chosen children.

After the autistics, there is no inspiration, only the dark side of things to come.

Even after hearing Rabbi Mizrachi, with his strong truthful messages, I am left inspired, informed and in awe sometimes.

To each his own path to the Torah, truth, teshuva, and inspiration.

Turkey breaking down? (By the way, fortold by Rabbi Nir ben Artzi)

ISTANBUL--Turkey's central bank Monday moved to support a slumping lira after the country's ruling party lost its majority in national elections on Sunday after 13 years in power.

In a statement on its Web site, the central bank said it cut its one-week foreign-currency deposit rates for dollars to 3.5% from 4% and euro deposit rates to 1.5% from 2% as of June 9, citing recent global and local developments.

Turkish assets sank on Monday, with the lira slumping to a new record low of 2.8096 against the dollar. Turkey's main BIST-100 index opened 8.15% lower as the election results increased political uncertainty, suggesting the coalition or minority government for the first time in more than a decade.

FYI, FC is Facilitated Communication. And yes, Neshama, autistics are limited by their lack of ability to speak with emotions, empathy, and warmth while conveying messages and thoughts. Nir ben Artzi makes up for that in spades. That would likely be the most noticeable difference between the two, based on the limitation of what autism as a psychological condition is.

American Pharaoh, a race horse owned by Egyptian-born Ahmed Zayat, became the first thoroughbred to capture the coveted Triple Crown in nearly four decades. Sweeping the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes for the first time since 1978, Pharaoh paid out big time for his Orthodox Jewish owner.

Zayat owns 144 horses, and prior to American Pharaoh’s historic victories over the past weeks, he had watched his thoroughbreds suffer bitter defeat, coming in second in the Kentucky Derby three out of the last four years. In 2012, his horses finished second in each of the three Triple Crown races – the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes.

So what is it like for an Orthodox Jewish family and friends to gather around the winner’s circle at the Kentucky Derby? “There is no conflict,” Mrs. Zayat said. “Most of our big races are on Saturdays, so we walk to the track. Shabbat is still Shabbat.” - - This I don't understand. Is racing and cashing in on Shabbos permissible? Definitely not! Is this a new kind of orthodoxy?

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Meir: I am sure that he has asked a sh'aylah. I am also sure that the check is given to him on Motzei Shabbat. He owns the horse all week long. The bigger question of course is, "Is he working his horse on Shabbat?" It seems to me that he is "employing" his horse even though the horse is not pulling a plow but is carrying a lightweight jockey instead. Perhaps this is a question for Rav Mizrachi.

Mr. Zayat owns 144 racehorses, but he is not a king. So he can own as many racehorses as he wants. And he is from Cairo, and not going back. So there is no danger of him returning to Egypt....unless America is now the new Egypt at Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah. This is more likely the hashkafic problem with continuing to want to live and prosper in America without one foot out the door in Eretz Yisrael.

Speaking of LA and NY and the elements, and 770 in brooklyn:
Brooklyn: as "Breuckelen" in 1646, after the town now spelled "Breukelen", Netherlands.
Breukelen really means a Dutch type of brook, be it often a dugged out waterway in the wet peat lands, for to atleast have some form of seperation of water and soil. This in order for the grass to grow, and the cows can than walk and eat that. So that is good in Dutch standards, to not have a swamp but a brook instead. (Holland; mad house ever since obamination marriages in '98)
So in my humble opinion there is no coincidence or happenstance (no translation in Dutch)in Chabad being at brooklyn, since Torah is water and Brooklyn is water.

I must tell you that because of this whole aura surrounding this horse, I watched the 3 videos of his races and this horse is something special. I commented my thoughts over at yaak's post about the horse. The gracefulness of his galloping was different from the other horses. Each of the 3 races were different, i.e. Track, duration and weather. In each one he was almost off the ground in graceful motion. I am not a racing fan or horse enthusiast, but I recommend watching at least the triple crown last race.

Me'ir: He, the jockey Victor Espinoza davened to G-d at the Lubavitcher Rebbe's kever before the Big Race, the third race of the Triple Crown. That in and of itself is a good thing. I don't think that the 7th Lubavitcher Rebbe cared much about horse racing (and being a Melitz Yasher for winning a horse race would not be a priority), but this type of Americana is as old as the USA. The bigger problem for America is that there is less and less of this type of thing going on now.

Chilul Shabbat is another issue. I will ask a sha'ylah whether racing a horse that one owns on Shabbat would require that someone else own the horse for that Shabbat day. Then of course, the stand-in owner would get all of that prize money. We need to ask a Rav. Looking at the jockey, Mr. Espinoza, in the video, he is a tiny, light as a feather man. I am not sure that carrying him to victory was much of a burden for the horse who should not be carrying burdens on Shabbat if the horse is owned by a Jew and employed in the Jew's service on the Holy Shabbat.

The three justices on the US Supreme Court that voted FOR Israeli residents, born in Yerushalayim to have Israel on their passports in accordance with a law passed by Congress in 2002 were:

Justice Antonin Scalia
Justice John Roberts
Justice Samuel Alito

One justice, Clarence Thomas, voted against this right on narrow grounds. The other five Justices "patriotically" said that the Constitution says that the President has the sole power to recognize sovereignty of other countries.....over their capital cities. To those who think that this issue is NOT a political issue, that it is a Constitutional issue, you are sadly mistaken. The US Constitution gives the right of advice and consent on treaties sighed by the President to the US Senate. It truly is silent on issues such as this. The day to day running of foreign policy IS in the hands of the President, but deciding whether the Capital City of a foreign country belongs to that foreign country is a 100% political issue and is NOT a "day to day" issue, and of course we know where the left wing Joooooos on the high court stand along with two of its Catholic justices. So we should send Justices Scalia, Roberts, and Alito a thank you note, share the note with our leftwing "brethren", and watch them have a hissy fit over it. It really is time to take them on as our own internal enemies....That requires suing for divorce from our areivut with them. Let them suffer for their own sins.

As far as davening that Har Tzion should continue to judge Har Esav, we should ask for a blessing for those Roman Catholics who don't want to divide Yerushalayim such as the three Supreme Ct. justices named above. The Roman Church has produced some good individuals irrespective of the Doctrine of Evil at the root of their Church. Some Popes in recent times have either tried to make amends for their Doctrine of Evil, John the XXIII for instance. Others like John Paul II were simply good human beings. Yet, over the centuries the good guys proved to be the aberrations. The dog in the end always returned to its vomit.

Intermediary halachic response to the American Pharaoh horce race issue

For starters: According to Jewish Law, gambling in all its forms was either forbidden by the Rabbis or seriously frowned upon. According to the Talmud, taking money won in gambling is a form of stealing, because the loser does not want to give up his money. Professional gamblers according to rabbinic law were forbidden from giving testimony in a Jewish court of law. The gamblers as witnesses were not trusted. During the temple times it seems pigeon races were the in thing, and the Rabbis used one who bets on pigeon races as an example.

Secondly: The Torah and Judaism are against cruelty to animals. Overall racing animals raises some serious questions on how the animals are treated. It is important that we distance ourselves from any possibility of partaking in what could be considered cruelty to animals. According to IDA, In Defense of Animals:

“Around 800 racehorses die each year from fatal injuries suffered on US racetracks. An additional number of approximately 3,566 sustain injuries so bad that they cannot finish their races. Several breeding and horse handling abuses contribute to the great risk of death and injury that horses face.

Breeders often race horses as young as two. These horses lack fully developed bone structure, and are more likely to suffer injury.

To keep horses racing through pain, handlers administer Lasix and Bute. These pain relievers numb pain, but do not treat the injuries that cause pain. Consequently, these injuries get worse. Horses that suffer severe injuries as a result of drug induced racing get sold to slaughterhouses, a more profitable venture for breeders than euthanization. These horses suffer long cramped rides to the slaughterhouse without painkillers, in unfit trailers. Handlers also use Lasix to mask the presence of illegal substances such as steroids.

A horse that fails to win also faces death in a slaughterhouse, where operators sell the horse’s flesh overseas for human consumption, or provide horse meat to glue factories.

While horse racing is no longer legal in Belgium, it is a sanctioned event in many other places in the world. Work to end horse racing by: Refusing to patronize tracks and by encouraging others to do the same. Lobbying against the construction of new tracks. Educating the public about horse racing industry’s cruelty to horses.”

Taking all this into account people should judge for themselves how they view the Melbourne Cup and any animal racing for that matter.

The bigger question of course is why would this information be hidden from the public if it is true that Kerry was mortally injured in an ISIS terrorist attack. This has to be ascertained with incontrovertible evidence of course. The answer is becoming more and more obvious. The Obaminable One does not want to go to war. Notice that the attack on Kerry was exactly one week after Shavuot. A friend of this blog pointed this out to me. The 106 year old Mekubal who said that there would be a war one week after Shavuot was correct. What the mekubal did not count on is that the so-called leader of the free world would hide the fact that the United States was attacked exactly one week after Shavuot for a more pressing foreign policy goal, his goal to divide Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael by proving in the "Ct. of public opinion" that Klal Yisrael was guilty of a Crime against Humanity because we have not granted the invented people a State of their own. For that reason primarily alone Barack Hussein Obama did not want to go to war against ISIS. So the very fact that America was attacked (or may have been attacked) one week after Shavuot has to be hidden from the world. (Above is the most likely explanation of why the terror attack against the American Sec. of State may have very well been hidden. We are dealing with a supremely evil man in the Obaminable One. If any Jew could not see that by the time he/ she went into the polling booth in 2012 four years after he was first elected, all I can say is Bye.)

"Rabbi" Nir Ben Artzi is a total fraud.

This is clearly shown in the following article (couldn't find it in English).

http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%A0%D7%99%D7%A8_%D7%91%D7%9F_%D7%90%D7%A8%D7%A6%D7%99

He's already swindeled millions from his followers, and it is sickening to see people fall for this.

"5. Rabbi Nir Ben-Artzi. The freelance ‘mystic’ and ‘seer’ is worth $26 million."

I see his articles every week, and I can comfortably say that what he has to say and how he writes is sub-kindergarten level.

Basically, he says "XYZ is happening" (XYZ = wars, earthquakes, etc), and than adds his prediction that there will be more XYZs (wow - what deep insight).

Let's start with the facts - he is not a rabbi, or mekubal or anything. He did not even finish high school, and his Jewish education is elementary school level.

I will admit that he may be a good cheerleader - give him a couple of pom-poms and let's call it a day.

Again, please let's beware of swindlers and frauds like Nir, and not encourage others to fall for these cults.

Even if he is a good cheerleader, and says positive, uplifting things (as some or you say), that does not justify giving him a stage to take advantage of so many poor folks.

"The estimate is that the forced period of waiting will end in September. Then, as the UN General Assembly opens, the signal will be given to start the diplomatic attack against Israel."

The timing may be an eye-opener, but probably not by the EU.

US Diplomats Reveal EU Sanctions Assault After Iran Deal

In order to reduce recriminations, we simply need to find an honest MSM reporter preferably from a fairly conservative publication (such as Foxnews, WSJ, The Blaze, or Forbes) making the same observations about the Ba'al Kerry's disappearance. no photos, no public statements, no nothing for nine days now. And when he is flown home from Europe, he is not flown home on the Sec. of State's personal plane. If it were a broken leg, he would not have needed to be medivacuated out of Geneva or Paris wherever he supposedly broke his femur....on a bike...yea really.

I posted this on Ya'ak's blog asking for help in this matter. It is nine days later, and no hide nor hair of the Ba'al Kerry smiling with a thumbs up that he is about to get back to work:

June 30th is the 13th of Tamuz. If 5775 is the keitz b'itah, then something has to happen to prevent our annual spiritual nosedive which starts on the 17th of Tamuz, (Shabbat this year on the 4th of July). We rose to the 49th level of purity in the 49th year since and including the 6 Day War. The very next day (Shavu'ot), the Roman Catholic Church made a bold move to claim access to King David's tomb at the level of Malkhut that is in Malkhut on the 49th Shavu'ot since the 6 Day War. If this Shavu'ot was a spiritual moment to begin to judge Mt. Esav from Mt. Tzion, there WON'T be a spiritual plunge this summer beginning on the 17th of Tamuz. The following week after Shavu'ot, exactly one week later, the Roman Church made an even bolder more diabolic move and was met by a Jewish spiritual resistance of Rav Shalom Arush and a bunch of others. Suddenly after Rav Arush shows up at King David's tomb one week after Shavuot on the Day of Battle, the Ba'al Kerry disappears off the face of the planet because he supposedly broke a femur while riding a bike in Europe. Nine days later, there are no pictures, no public statements about his improving health, and Victoria Nuland is silently taking over his responsibilities. He was Medivacked to Boston from Europe when the Sec. of State's personal plane would have sufficed. Info. is leaking out that he may have been in a serious assassination attempt by Da'esh on that very date one week after Shavu'ot. I don't know what to make of it. It could have started a world war, but this Archduke Ferdinand moment is nowhere to be seen in the MSM press. Please help if you can figure out what the heck is really going on. This one really stinks, and if true, that 106 yr. old Mekubal would have been right, but the NWO or Obama has a far more important foreign policy goal than to fight Da'esh. Dividing Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael is the more important goal in their minds, far more important than going to war against Da'esh. So please help.

I can't see how anyone would be able to cover up an assassination attempt on the Secretary of State. Nowadays, EVERYTHING gets recorded. I can't see how it would be possible to cover ALL the evidence.

Also, why wouldn't there have been a claim of responsibility for the "attack"?

I think that we're starting to go off the deep end a bit!

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

which is precisely why we can't pursue this anymore until we get more verifiable information. Even though the MSM cannot be trusted as a whole, the MSM is not one unified bloc. The conservative side does not share the liberal agenda of most of the Press to lay out the red royal carpet for Obama. Conservative members of what is often called the MSM should be asking questions. Why is it that nine days after an accident, there are no pictures of the Secretary of State in his leg cast with a thumbs up hand sign? If this is a leg break, why would he still be in a hospital nine days later? My wife had hip replacement surgery. She did not stay in any hospital for nine days. Why is it that Victoria Nuland is quietly taking over at the State Dept. in real policy matters such as the Ukraine? At the very least someone should be asking the right questions. We may as well begin to ask them here.

Now we will move on to different matters unless some verifiable information is presented. This does not include Psychic websites. Sorry I can't post that one.

I hear you. Why no thumbs up and a smile saying, "I'm ok. A little worn, but ok."Very suspicious indeed. They will have to say something soon. The only problem is for Obammy. He will have to put something into it that he does not have: Intestinal fortitude. He will have to respond to the enemy if they indeed tried to assassinate Kerry. We will see soon because they cannot keep it covered forever.

I have a feeling that you guys and gals are missing the point: so what if Kerry was killed- or almost killed- by an Isis guy? It makes absolutely no difference! I hope Obungo gets the message: the Isis guy was only the messenger of Hashem; the only benefit from Isis doing the dirty deed, if at all, is the clear irony that the beast bit the hand that fed it. Edom raised a violent pit bull, a mastiff, and the mastiff attacked its master! Edom's punishment came from the appropriate source. But what really matters is that the enemy of Hashem, the enemy of Am Yisrael, got punched in the stomach with full force. I do hope that Obungo gets the message: America is NOTHING,worldly power is nothing, State Department is nothing,it is wind, it is straw; in an instant Hashem can destroy whomever He wants, thanks to the power of prayer of Am Yisrael and the help of David Hamelech's Tehillim. That is the real message to the Nations, that is the humiliating defeat that Obongo is trying to cover up at all costs, that is why he can't get himself to reveal what happened: he would have to acknowledge that Hashem is King; not only him, but all of Edom, the Vatican, Rome, London, Europe, the whole West, would have to admit that they are powerless, naked, and vulnerable in the face of G-d. I bet you they were all discussing how to feed the bitter truth to the world without losing face. Didn't they just have a G7 meeting yesterday and the day before? Don't you think KERRY was at the top of the list of their discussions??

These are quoted statements by Marie "ISIS Warriors Need Jobs!" Harf. 1. No pictures, 2. no explanation of why the Ba'al Kerry is still in the hospital in his tenth day from a broken leg, and 3. no recorded conversation between him and a member of the Press or even with his own State Dept people. just the word of Marie "ISIS Warriors Need Jobs!" Harf.

This is news? What Marie Harf tells us about her boss is news? Reuters and the Times of Malta tell us what Marie Harf has to say, and that is the News folks!

I do not know what happened to Kerry, but if Kerry had a broken femur, rather than an assassination attempt, it can still be very serious. There is risk of bone infection and blood clots. It is entirely possible he is seriously ill from a broken bone, if that is what happened, and as such he would not be in a condition to conduct public relations.

Ten days later and No Photos released yet, Mr. Sec. of State!

In response to that barrage of questions from journalists, This Photo was Released

So until we have evidence that something else has happened besides what was claimed (a bike accident), the subject is closed now. Yes, it is highly unusual that there were no photos are interviews for ten days, but this is NOT the most transparent Administration. Yet, we can't let our imaginations run wild. We need real evidence that the alternative story happened. I am sorry to those wanting to discuss other things for the interlude, but we don't prohibit discussion on this blog when something unusual happens. Now that the photo has been released, there is no way to prove that something unusual actually happened....for now at least.

In short we are now back to the point where we need incontrovertible evidence that Kerry was attacked or ambushed and that he did not just fall off his bicycle while cycling in the French Alps.

DS, I don't think that we can pursue this any further right now except to say that his injury was obviously more serious than originally stated....however that injury actually occurred.

And yes, it is more than just a coincidence that this serious accident or injury from something worse happened to him on the very day that Rav Shalom Arush and a bunch of our good guys and gals on our side went into battle against the Idolaters including the Catholic Church over the ownership of King David's tomb on Har Tzion, one week after Shavu'ot.

Its a tincture and works fast and specifically for the bronchials. You take 1 ml 3 times a day (10 days) and it should relieve you, plus a good strong non-alcohol cough syrup. I recommend Santaspina by A. Vogel. And most of all plenty of rest. There are no side effects, as I have a very sensitive system I am very careful what I take. No antibiotics.

Here is a very large photo of Kerry in bed at the hospital. Zoom in on the view of the city out the window. You will see green deciduous trees, green grass, sailboats in the water and a very high sun (note the shadow of the bridge in the water). What appears to be snow on some of the rooftops is probably just the reflection of the intense sun. It is so bright that the water is sparkling intensely and the sky is very hazy.

As pointed out previously on this blog by Tishbi, Golden refers to the 50th in almost all the world's cultures. So the 50th Gate is the Golden Gate to either Purity or Impurity. You can guess easily which is which. As we know the 50th Gate is always Qadosh on the side of purity here in Eretz Yisrael. On the side of impurity, it is reprobate and irredeemable.

HaShem will never let Eretz Yisrael pass through the 50th Gate of Impurity. In the rest of the world, it will happen when 3 Erev Rav Supreme Court Justices make Homosexual Marriages the Law of the Land in all 50 States by the end of June.

One last thought before going to bed: As we approach this potential Yovel year, there is a major difference between the last two Yovel years vs. this one that is coming up. The Yovel years 5678 and 5727 began and furthered the process of giving ERetz Yisrael to the possession of the Jewish people. In the Fall of 5678 Lord Balfour wrote his declaration to give E.Y. to the possession of the Jewish people dependent upon a British victory to take Yerushalayim from the Ottoman-Turks. David Lloyd Gog sent Allenby to complete the job, and he was successful in time for the first night of Chanukah that year. 49 years later in 5727 the other half of Tzion was united with the half that Israel had successfully won and defended in the War of Independence in 5708. The success in 5678 was a physical attainment through diplomacy and the success of the British in WW1. The victory in 5727 began the Ba'al Teshuvah movement in earnest just before Shavuot of that year. So not only was there a physical attainment of the Land of Israel, a spiritual process was kindled in 5727 whose pinnacle would not be seen until 48 years into the future during the 49th year of achievement. The spiritual completion of this process by necessity is in the Fall of the 49th year (at the juncture between 5775 and 5776) which then becomes a Yovel, sanctifying the 50th year that is commencing in the Fall. The sanctification can only come about if the achievement is spiritual, not just physical, and so it is.

In order for us to arrive at 5776 in a spirit of sanctity, the spiritual plunge that would normally occur during what is known as the "3 weeks" cannot take place in 5775. So whatever War is being talked about right here seems to me that it must begin no later than Rosh Chodesh Av in order to forestall the annual plunge into the spiritual abyss in 5775. At least after careful thought this seems the case for me. So for those keeping track, we seem to be arriving at an endgame when the Geulah must kick into high gear. Plus the Summer fast days fall out on Shabbat this year, pushing off any Churban for G-d fearing Jews for this particular year. Read my Comments to that article at the bottom of the page. more later...

From Wikipedia on the Personal life of Walid Jumblatt:

Jumblatt was twenty when he married his first wife, who was an Iranian actress and older than him.[7] His father did not endorse the marriage.[7] His second spouse was Gervette "Gigi," a Jordanian woman of Circassian origin, who is the mother of his child Taymour (born 1982).[7]

In order to fully understand the female Circassian Xtian role of Shifchah or "slavegirl" in Mideast culture, you can read this: Multiple Wives, Multiple Pleasures: Representing the Harem, 1800-1875

Gervette or "Gigi", 2nd wife to Walid was therefore his shifchah. So now you can figure out what needs to be done! Save the Syrian Druze!

From Yeranen Yaakov, about Kever David, from Rav Berger. Awesome, and great that Rav Kanievsky is also getting involved. Maybe now more people will get interested.

And also great to know that this Kever, if I understand correctly, can be visited by Kohanim. My brother is a Kohen, and when I asked him to visit he refused, saying as a Kohen he is not allowed. So maybe after all he is!

And the issue of the inner spiritual battle at the End of Days - my G-d, how true.

Just to help others wade through Medrash Sefer Eliyahu again. This part: These will be his signs, for Daniel has already foreseen him: his face will be long, there will be a bald patch between his eyes, he will be very tall, the soles of his feet will be high (sic), and his thighs will be thin. At that time he will attack the faithful people, and he will provoke at that time three agitations. All the constellations will be gathered together and move to one place. They will plunder houses and rob fields and strike the orphan and the widow in the bazaar, but if they perform penitence they will be forgiven.

describes Ehud Olmert or TRMLO who was mentioned previously. The interlude which precedes this, should have a paragraph stop after describing "the son of a shifchah named Gigit will confront (the last King of Persia) from the West." What comes after that sentence goes back to describing Ehud Olmert. HaShem1.net talked about this at the time of the Amona catastrophe early on in Olmert's rule while he was still a Ma'aleh Makom and not even PM yet. But he attacked faithful people and plundered houses for sure. So that part of the medrash describes Olmert. Obviously it does not describe Taymour who is not bald or even that tall.

Gives "money laundering" a whole new meaning, doesn't it?

Neshama: I agree with you wholeheartedly!

I'm not so impressed by these Xians. Ten thousand isn't so many compared to the entire American Xian population; plus, what you quoted has the language of "born-again" Xians who won't have influence over mainstream protestants and catholics. They way overstate the gravitas of whatever they're doing.

They could also be helping their brethren over here - you know, the ones ISIS is beheading every day. Where are they?

We could have our equivalent of that easily - it has happened at least twice in the last couple of years. After all, how many people showed up for Rav Ovadia, ztzl's funeral? Weren't there over a million? And I think there were a lot of people protesting drafting Haredim into the army all at once, too.

What do you think of this? Very important!

https://youtu.be/-A93mLlSWuw

If I am correct, this is connected to the saga of Karen Hudes, the traitor Jewish American World Bank lawyer who made sure that among others, the fortunes that were stolen by the Nazis from the JEWISH PEOPLE had passed the statute of limitations, and were sent to the Philippines to be given away. A long story. I have all the information at my fingertips in a post I never published, all the necessary links to it.

At first I thought this video is pure nonsense; but then towards the end King Solomon's wealth is mentioned here. So it seems to me this is the same story, just a new chapter to it.

Any of you have followed this story in the past? I have. Look up Benjamin Fulford, Karen Hudes, Dragon Family, Ferdinand Marcos, Jewish gold, Japanese bonds, Vatican. Lots and lots of info on it. Very sick story when you get to the bottom of it. They STOLE what belongs to the Jewish people, and this turncoat Jewish woman, seething with hatred for the Jewish People, has done all the legal work to make sure the fortune is unavailable to Am Yisrael, and given to the rest of the world. At least that is the intent. I wonder how much of it is real, how much of it is nonsense, and how much of it is pure fraud and crime.

Your opinion is valued. Just today I posted something about the Jewish gold discovered by the US in Germany and whisked away to the US, STOLEN!!! And now this....

Maybe we should ask some of our Mekubalim about the truthfulness of this story? Could the Kelim of the Temple be part of that too???

Thank you and Shabbat Shalom.

On "End of the American Dream" there is a lengthy post about 7 things that will happen in September, one of which is:

"September 13th – This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – the last day of the Shemitah year.  Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market crashes on the last day of the previous two Shemitah cycles.

On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time.  The Dow plummeted 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.

On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow fell by an astounding 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time."

Thank you for that info. Obviously I won't be posting any Xtian messages from Kay Wilson. But she responded as a Jew by saying K'riat Shma when her life hung in the balance unlike her friend who did not survive after she asked Yoshke for help. The reason for posting the link was to present the stark reality of Arab terror in graphic and horrifying reality.

re: the Druze ( to see which comment I am responding to, do a search on the page for "druze")

I hope that we do whatever we should, but I advise people not to be so in love with them. A close friend of mine told me that he remembers how many years ago, a border police unit composed primarily of Druze were used to terrorize and beat the hell out of the men women and children in Mea Shearim.

I do not care one bit that those Druze were part of the border police acting on orders of the Erev Rav vermin. If a border police unit composed of Jews terrorized a Druze village we would never hear the end of it. They did not have to beat those men and boys, and from the account I was told, they enjoyed themselves a great deal. They started beating on drums, singing songs, making noise, then they moved in with clubs and spared no one. This is the account I was told, and I believe it.

So from my end, they are welcome to go and die. If they do not like it, then they should consider that they made their choice to go in bed with the Erev Rav vermin and not with the true representatives of the Jewish people - and that is the Haredim of Meah Shearim. The pact made with Yitro was made with Moshe Rabbeinu, not with Bilaam or Datan and Aviram. And that is assuming that these @#$@# are even the actual sons of Yithro, which I do not believe anyway. But it doesn't matter either way.

And I say this, and I am not haredi, nor do I live in Meah Shearim. But we all know that those are the ones who represent the Torah.

DS: I had to think about what you last posted a lot before responding.

For one thing, tho I have not researched the whole subject of where all the gold went (hadn't even heard of all this before), I had heard of Karen Hudes, as a whistleblower who exposed the World Bank and other elites, quite some time ago. I just Googled her and the article brings out that she was reinstated at the World Bank despite what she did to them: Karen Hudes: Dollar To Crash And Be Replaced With New, Interest Free, Gold-Backed Currency, from November 5, 2014.

Could that be because she was really working in their interest all along, even as she "exposed" them? I had no idea that money stolen from Jews had anything to do with it. Other than gold teeth, that is.

Some real questions arose: More than 551 metric tons of gold has been kept around the world in different spots but in a single trust fund??? -- Is this right, or even possible? -- for a 50-year statute-of-limitations period “so all the claims on the world’s wealth would be subject to the statute of limitations, which basically says that if somebody claims that they own something, but they haven’t been able to gain control of it for 50 years, then they’ve lost their claim. The purpose was so that all of the assets that were put in trust for humanity when the 50 year period ended, would be available for humanity without any competing claims. That 50 year period ended in 2005.” Does this apply to nations, too? Statutes of limitations usually take into account the life span of a human being, or even several generations. What about the life span of a nation?

Is this what you meant when you said KH made sure that we, as the Jewish people, cannot claim what was stolen from us as we were murdered in WWII? Was there more besides this? Was KH the banking lawyer for this fund?

Without taking up the entire blog, I will express a thought I had when watching that video: For every truth a falsehood is put out there as long as there is to be freedom of choice. And now, we have two Geuloth to choose from. Actually, we, the Jewish people don't; but the world does. It's either the dirty, bloody stolen golden money from the elites, or HaShem's Geulah Shlemah.

And that's only for those who survive! I don't think the elites are thinking of handing out all that to billions of people, since they are plotting to kill off some 93% of the world. The Absolute Truth blog can tell you all about it.

You can bet that anything that is going to "all humanity" has a special unspoken clause: EXCEPT FOR THE JEWS. Especially because probably more than we can imagine was stolen from us?!?!?!?

Please publish your article! It will tip the balance back to choice where there is none now, to accept the filthy lucre or not.

Nu, bringing this up takes the Golden 50th Level of Tumah down to a whole new depth? SIGH.

Shabbat Shalom.

Re: The Druzim and their potential role in the future on the side of righteousness

It is inappropriate to report heresay. Period. Nevertheless, people of all stripes have committed crimes. This proves nothing. The issue is the bigger picture. It is known by every knowledgeable individual that the Druzim are descendants of Yitro. They say so themselves and his kever (near Tiveria) is their most holy pilgrim place. Rav Ovadia called them chasdei ha'olam, true righteous gentiles among the nations of the world. When it comes to their sacrifice for the Jewish people, nothing should need to be said, but apparently it does. Do we quickly forget the Druze policeman who gave his life defending Jews who were davening shacharit in J'lem earlier this year? Halachically, we even have a chiuv to daven for their souls in shul if they give their lives for Israel! Many Druzim have given their lives for the Jewish people, and many continue to serve faithfully in the IDF. Chas v'shalom that anyone should gainsay this. R'L.

Yitro was a Kenite. He lived a very precarious life after the exodus. He knew enough to give his daughter to Moshe Rabbeinu (which Bilam compliments in his famous prophecy). And Bilam goes further to compliment the Kenites as a whole for their loyalty to Israel. (They even suffered exile with the Ten Tribes under the Assyrians.) And yet, they have often lived in two worlds, one world living among enemies and one world trying to be true to their ancient alliance with Israel (whether conscious or otherwise makes no difference -- H' guides history). Chever was also a "friend" with Sisera, yet he was also a descendant of Yitro, and his wife, Yael, killed Sisera in her tent, with tremendous mesirat hanefesh. This seems to be the hidden role of this nation of tzaddikim.

More could be said, but this should be enough. The Jumblatts live in a very difficult world up there in Lebanon. They live near the enemy, even as Yitro did and just as his descendant Chever did. Yet in the end, their loyalty will be proven out as the midrash says. Just wait. In the meantime, save your condemnations to yourself and maybe H' will forgive you if you do teshuvah.

Shabbat shalom.

In response to both Ron and Hoshea Allen. Within most nations and especially those from the M.E., there is great mixture of people. We really do not know at this point in history who the real descendants are. As a whole, those from the Druze community are loyal citizens, but they are loyal citizens to whichever country they belong. We, as Jews, do not need to always stand up for the nations, for most despise us. Taking the help and having alliances with nations is NOT what H' wants of us and angers Him. Believe that nations cannot be trusted when it comes to Yisrael, only as
'individuals'. In other words, there are good people from every nation (except the Amaleikim). Therefore, must agree with Ron's comment.

The last person to die at Yosef's tomb in Shekhem defending the tomb from the Arab mob at the onset of the Al Aksa Intifada in the year 2000 was a Druze police officer or a soldier. I can't remember which it is for sure (police officer or soldier), but he for sure he was a Druze. It seems to me that for a small group of loyal citizens, as they are often called, they seem to be often caught dead going beyond the call of duty. I will never forget that.

Listen, I am not a soldier on the physical field of battle. I am more a soldier of the Spirit. The time is coming when we will have to go to war, very very close to that time when it will be thrust upon us. We may as well choose the moment that will please G-d the most. As the Druze are surrounded by raw Evil of ISIS, if that is what is happening, then that time may have arrived.

I had a bit of inspiration over Shabbat dealing with Eldad's and Meidad's prophesy in last week's parshah. According to RAbeinu Bachya, one of their prophesies in the Camp was about the War of Gog UMagog. I will have to write something fuller in a new post about Meidad's prophesy. Meidad means Beloved of Water. Eldad means Beloved of G-d. And yes, it has something to so with those floods in Texas during Shavuot (2nd Day of Shavuot) itself which were of Biblical proportions. Because we are beginning to do tikkunim for sins in the 2nd year in the Desert, we may reach the point of "reversing the Sin of the Spies" by Tisha B'Av. It may be thrust upon us in ways which will become clearer when the War begins.

England’s Former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks Calls for Jewish Surrender in Europe

Observer.com: “This week England’s Former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks gave a speech described by the media as doom and gloom at a conference in Herzliya. He admitted a belief that the BDS movement had succeeded in making the State of Israel a “divisive factor” in Jewish life and claimed that, as a result, supporting Israel was “almost impossible” for European Jews.

It was an astonishingly defeatist speech, which is troubling enough. But most disturbing was the false dichotomy he presented to European Jews. In his own troubling words he said, “Jews have been faced with a choice: live in Europe and criticize Israel or be silent, or leave Europe…” In other words, the only solutions left for Europe’s Jewish community is to embrace and succumb to BDS or get out. What he shockingly neglected to mention is the obvious third option: to stay in Europe, embrace Israel, and fight for the Jewish State.”

Comment: Definitions:

BDS: In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights.

Apartheid state: “the state of being apart“, literally “apart-hood” was a system of racial segregation in South Africa enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP), the governing party from 1948 to 1994.

On April 28, 2014 Secretary of State John Kerry opined that the absence of a peace deal with Palestinians could lead towards an apartheid-style situation while conveniently forgetting that Mahmoud Abbas and his terror buddies would not even acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.

What makes this so satanic is the entire Palestinian issue is a lie beginning with the name Palestinian. There is no such thing as an Arab-Palestinian. The name was an invention of one the 20th century’s most evil terrorists – Yasser Arafat.

What makes this so interesting is that everyone involved knows the lie, but take pleasure in unrighteousness.

And we get to watch this knowing the end from the beginning, Isaiah 46:10.

How incredible is that?

Re: Kerry. So, either I have to eat humble pie - fine with me - or he really did get shot but recovered. Who is to say it really was a bike accident? What other injuries might he have sustained not mentioned here? What if he was shot in the leg and didn't break it? We shall never know. So, is Whatdoesitmean full of it, or do they have info coming from unusual sources? In the face of it this looks like a closed and shut case, and they were wrong. Maybe, and maybe not....

Re: Prince William's address to a Jewish audience:

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/196704#.VX1oflLkorc

According to some sources - NOT Whatdoesitmean, - which would have to be verified, apparently both he and his very pleasant and nice wife are Jewish, born of Jewish mothers, albeit not practicing Judaism . Does that make them halachically Jewish? If you follow Princess Diana's genealogy you will notice that she was Jewish. So is the mother, at least, of Kate. I forgot if her father is or isn't Jewish.

That would explain his innate good feeling about the Jews. They really are a lovely couple. And their kids , if true, are Jewish through and through - until they convert, that is.

In addition, did you know? traditionally boys in the royal family of England have a Brit Milah at eight days done by the "ROYAL MOYEL". So that would make little Prince George a circumcised Jew. All he needs is a Pidyon Haben!!!

Meidad's (Beloved of Water) prophesy for Water on the Land of Gog came true in Texas the second day of Shavuot. Both Eldad and Meidad according to Seder Olam prophesied in the Camp when the Spirit of G-d fell upon them and the newly inaugurated replacement 70 elders on the 23rd or the 24th of Iyar. According to Moshe Rabbeinu, the punishment for eating the quail was up to 30 days of pain and suffering. That included the holy Day of Shavuot that year. What is curious about Moshe Rabbeinu's charge to those who were going to eat of the quail, he told them to Sanctify themselves! for the event Rashi says that Moshe was being sarcastic, by acerbically telling them to "Prepare yourself for pain and suffering!" When I saw that over Shabbat, it did not sit well with me that Moshe Rabbeinu would be so acerbic in his discussion with these reshayim. There is a deeper message. So I noticed that on the same day the quail was to cover the camp, 70 zekainim were inducted with the Spirit of prophesy + 2 more Eldad and Meidad because the previous year on Shavuot we pleaded with Moshe that he act as our intercessory with HaShem so that we did not have to here the voice of G-d anymore. Well after a year of doing just that, Moshe could no longer take the burden. So he requested of G-d that he have the assistance of the new crop of 70 elders who replaced those 70 elders who had just been killed at Taveirah for eating and drinking before G-d also on Shavuot the previous year. So HaShem told Moshe to gather 72 men before the Tent of Meeting, 6 from each tribe not including Levi, for a total of 72. There was a lottery. 2 of the ballots were left blank. The others designated 70 of the elders to be the new Sanhedrin. Eldad and Meidad (those were not their real names) decided that they would stay behind in the Camp because they were not worthy to be amongst the 70 elders. But when the Spirit of Prophesy came down on the 70 through Moshe, both Eldad and Meidad received Prophesy in their tents. So the lottery was never performed because only 70 showed up at the Tent of Meeting, and HaShem chose Eldad and Meidad to be "one of the 70" in their absence. More later......

Anyway getting back to our tale: Here is the curious pasuk which Moshe uttered before both events actually occurred:
יח וְאֶל-הָעָם תֹּאמַר הִתְקַדְּשׁוּ לְמָחָר, וַאֲכַלְתֶּם בָּשָׂר--כִּי בְּכִיתֶם בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוָה לֵאמֹר מִי יַאֲכִלֵנוּ בָּשָׂר, כִּי-טוֹב לָנוּ בְּמִצְרָיִם; וְנָתַן יְהוָה לָכֶם בָּשָׂר, וַאֲכַלְתֶּם. 18 And say thou unto the people: Sanctify yourselves against to-morrow, and ye shall eat flesh; for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying: Would that we were given flesh to eat! for it was well with us in Egypt; therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

Notice that he said, "Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, and you will eat flesh!" Huh?? such a curious way of showing contempt. What is important to remember is that he uttered these words before the candidates to be the 70 elders gathered at the tent and before all of them plus Eldad and Meidad received the Spirit of Prophesy. So in a very important way he was speaking to both groups. He was speaking to those who would truly sanctify themselves and to those who were waiting for the quail flesh to end up in their hands, between their teeth, and in their bellies. And although his happened about two weeks before Shavuot in the year 2449, in the 2nd year after we left Egypt, it sounded more like this command from two days before Shavuot the previous year:

י וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵךְ אֶל-הָעָם, וְקִדַּשְׁתָּם הַיּוֹם וּמָחָר; וְכִבְּסוּ, שִׂמְלֹתָם. 10 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Go unto the people, and sanctify them to-day and to-morrow, and let them wash their garments,
יא וְהָיוּ נְכֹנִים, לַיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי: כִּי בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִשִׁי, יֵרֵד יְהוָה לְעֵינֵי כָל-הָעָם--עַל-הַר סִינָי. 11 and be ready against the third day; for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

So in a very powerful way, Moshe's command for us to Sanctify ourselves for tomorrow was a preparation of Shavuot, for some to prepare for the Spirit of Prophesy to descend that had been removed from them on the previous Shavuot and for others to fall below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah because of in your face physical pursuits. The fact that the actual Shavuot in the 2nd year in the Midbar actually took place during the 30 day period that we remained in Kivrot Ta'avah solidifies that point. more later...

Now for an overview point about the Final Redemption: Because the Redemption from Egypt was cut short with the Sin of the Golden Calf for which he was angry for 40 and for which we repented for 40 days receiving Kaparah on Yom Kippur 2449, HaShem wanted us to "start anew" the following year on Rosh Chodesh Nissan with the erection of the Mishkan. It actually was erected in a Trial Run on the 25th of Kislev, but the Big Show was going to resume the following Nissan. So during the 2nd year we would be given ample opportunity to get it right that time. Well we not only did not succeed in that year to "get it right" in our second opportunity, we blew it totally, and 39 more years were added to our time in the Desert. So what makes the most sense is that we first have to repair the damage of our primary Sin in the 2nd year in the Desert, the Sin of the Spies, before we can get to the point of repairing the damage for the Primary Sin in the 1st year, the Sin of the Golden Calf. It is my belief that the Summer of 5775 has been set aside to repair the damage of the 2nd year in the Desert, and that the year 5776 has been set aside to repair the damage of the 1st year in the Desert. Since Mashiach comes when HaShem's Name is complete, Mashiach comes Between the two Summers. Why? because when we overcome the Sin of the Spies, even before we repair the damage of the Eigel, we are given the opportunity to defeat Amalek in the world thereby completing HaShem's Name by Sukkot. Once HaShem's Name is complete or concurrent to that event, Mashiach ben David comes since the Final Hey in HaShem's Name corresponds to Malkhut which emanates out as the Coming of Mashiach ben David. Where do we see this? We see it this last week's parshah, Pashat Selach Lecha: We see that after we "blew it" by crying all afternoon on the 9th of Av and all night long on the 10th of Av, we immediately see the following pasukim:

First we see the results of the mourning or nothing:
לו וְהָאֲנָשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר-שָׁלַח מֹשֶׁה לָתוּר אֶת-הָאָרֶץ; וַיָּשֻׁבוּ, וילונו (וַיַּלִּינוּ) עָלָיו אֶת-כָּל-הָעֵדָה, לְהוֹצִיא דִבָּה, עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 36 And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, and who, when they returned, made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land,
לז וַיָּמֻתוּ, הָאֲנָשִׁים, מוֹצִאֵי דִבַּת-הָאָרֶץ, רָעָה--בַּמַּגֵּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 37 even those men that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before the LORD.
לח וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן, וְכָלֵב בֶּן-יְפֻנֶּה, חָיוּ מִן-הָאֲנָשִׁים הָהֵם, הַהֹלְכִים לָתוּר אֶת-הָאָרֶץ. 38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men that went to spy out the land.
לט וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה, אֶל-כָּל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַיִּתְאַבְּלוּ הָעָם, מְאֹד. 39 And Moses told these words unto all the children of Israel; and the people mourned greatly.
מ וַיַּשְׁכִּמוּ בַבֹּקֶר, וַיַּעֲלוּ אֶל-רֹאשׁ-הָהָר לֵאמֹר: הִנֶּנּוּ, וְעָלִינוּ אֶל-הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר-אָמַר יְהוָה--כִּי חָטָאנוּ. 40 And they rose up early in the morning, and got them up to the top of the mountain, saying: 'Lo, we are here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised; for we have sinned.'

Then we see the pasukim about Amaleq being right there, but that we had lost the opportunity to attack them and win:

מא וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, לָמָּה זֶּה אַתֶּם עֹבְרִים אֶת-פִּי יְהוָה; וְהִוא, לֹא תִצְלָח. 41 And Moses said: 'Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD, seeing it shall not prosper?
מב אַל-תַּעֲלוּ, כִּי אֵין יְהוָה בְּקִרְבְּכֶם; וְלֹא, תִּנָּגְפוּ, לִפְנֵי, אֹיְבֵיכֶם. 42 Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not smitten down before your enemies.
מג כִּי הָעֲמָלֵקִי וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי שָׁם לִפְנֵיכֶם, וּנְפַלְתֶּם בֶּחָרֶב: כִּי-עַל-כֵּן שַׁבְתֶּם מֵאַחֲרֵי יְהוָה, וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה יְהוָה עִמָּכֶם. 43 For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and ye shall fall by the sword; forasmuch as ye are turned back from following the LORD, and the LORD will not be with you.'
מד וַיַּעְפִּלוּ, לַעֲלוֹת אֶל-רֹאשׁ הָהָר; וַאֲרוֹן בְּרִית-יְהוָה וּמֹשֶׁה, לֹא-מָשׁוּ מִקֶּרֶב הַמַּחֲנֶה. 44 But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain; nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.
מה וַיֵּרֶד הָעֲמָלֵקִי וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי, הַיֹּשֵׁב בָּהָר הַהוּא; וַיַּכּוּם וַיַּכְּתוּם, עַד-הַחָרְמָה. {פ} 45 Then the Amalekite and the Canaanite, who dwelt in that hill-country, came down, and smote them and beat them down, even unto Hormah.

From this we see that had we not mourned over nothing that afternoon of Tisha B'Av and night of the 10th of Av, we would have been immediately given an opportunity to destroy Amaleq once and for all allowing the completion of the Name of HaShem where the Yud and the First Hey had played the main role in the First Redemption from Egypt, the Vav and the Final Hey would have been attached starting on Tisha B'av/ the Tenth of Av.

So this the year of reversing that Sin, the Sin of the Spies by Tisha B'Av in order that the Name of HaShem can be complete by Sukkot. Then in 5776 we go about the business of establishing the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom and repairing the Sin of the Golden Calf the following 17th of Tamuz 5776.

So we needed a Siman that the 2nd year of leaving Egypt had gone into the Repair shop of Heavenly action here on earth. And this past Shabbat, I believe I found it. Before the Spies were sent in the 2nd year in the Desert to seal that year as a catastrophe, we had at least two sins under our belt going into the end of Siwan. 1. the Mitonnemim at Taveirah, that is those who look for pretexts to complain. During the Onesh for that Sin, it is brought down that the Sanhedrin that had eaten and drunk before G-d during seudat Shlishit of the previous Shavuot (which fell on Shabbat) were finally executed for being so lax in their kavod.

2. The Asaphsuph instigated sin of Complaining about the Mon and demanding Flesh: This is the Big precursor of the Sin of the Spies because unlike the Sin of the Mitonnenim more than the edge of the Camp was punished by death of vomiting up the quail through one's nose and dying a horrible death for having this ta'aivah. The Erev Rav successfully infiltrated the hearts and minds of Bnai Yisrael who were weak and susceptible to the Erev Rav's onslaught and challenge to Moshe.

Yet, at the same time, others who were not susceptible rose in Qedushah to meet G-d either at the Tent of Meeting or to the Spirit of Qedushah at the 50th level of purity on Shavuot. It was at this level that Eldad and Meidad began to prophesy. And they prophesied about many things. The one that is most often brought down is the fact that they prophesied that Moshe would die in the desert and that Yehoshua bin Nun would take us into Eretz Yisrael instead. Yehoshua quick to prove his loyalty to Moshe that he would never be part of such a plot, wanted to throw Eldad and Meidad in jail or to kill them, one or the other. The Hebrew word used there כְּלָאֵם can mean either to jail them or to make and end of them. Yet, a prophet never sticks to one subject matter. He often goes on to the next matter. According to Rabbeinu Bachya, they continued to prophesy about Gog UMagog. And he proves this from the following verse in Yechezkel 38:17 about the Coming of Gog:
יז כֹּה-אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, הַאַתָּה-הוּא אֲשֶׁר-דִּבַּרְתִּי בְּיָמִים קַדְמוֹנִים בְּיַד עֲבָדַי נְבִיאֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, הַנִּבְּאִים בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם, שָׁנִים--לְהָבִיא אֹתְךָ, עֲלֵיהֶם. {ס} 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD: Art thou he of whom I spoke in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, that prophesied in those days for many years, that I would bring thee against them? {S}

So notice the above verse. that there was a Prophet of Old who spoke about Gog's Coming back in "Primordial Days or Years" who prophesied "in those days". Now from that already we see that this prophesy is an ancient one so that we really don't need any more information about how old this prophesy is. But for some reason the pasuk adds the word, Shanim, which is often translated as Years Ago. Yet, the Yechezkel had already gone to great lengths to tell us that this prophesy was an ancient one, why add the word Shanim as an afterthought? So here Rabbeinu Bachya says that we should not pronounce שָׁנִים as Shanim but as Shnayim which means "two prophets" in this case meaning Eldad and Meidad.

Very very interesting.... seeing things unfold very quickly. Let me ask, Dov. Where does the major sin of toevah "marriage" vote in the US come in to this (because it is so huge with heavy ramifications) Do these things effect the 5775 and 5776 of what you just elaborated on OR is it that all you wrote continues to unfold AND what goes on in the US with this disgusting vote for toevah is just a way the US eventually falls? Meaning...is it a separate, yet huge OTHER event. Any connections?
Thanks always. I am grateful to be able to ask you my questions and that you answer them with caring and not criticism. :)

So the Day after Shavuot 5775, the 2nd Day of Shavuot in Chutz LaAretz, a Flood of Water came onto the world. Where you may ask? in the Land of Gog, Texas USA! From this we understand the pshat of the name Meidad (Beloved of Water) to indicate that the Land of Gog would be inundated by water at the End of Days right after that fateful 49th Shavuot. Remember, Texas is both the physical home and the political home of Gog H.W. Bush Sr. and Gog ben Gog W. Bush Jr. and now Gog P. Bush son of Jeb Bush, and elected Commissioner of the powerful Texas Land Authority. The princes of the New World Order have a home in Texas. Why? Because there is no place on earth that serves G-d to make money like Texas. Now is it better to be at the 33rd level of purity than at Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah or even the 50th level of Tumah such as in California? You will have to ask G-d. He is the one sending the Floods.

So The Geulah is in progress.....I will likely post this as a full fledged post later this week.

Leah, the Gemorrah in Chullin (Sandys literally such as Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut) tells us that there are two things that HaShem will not permit to stand amongst the nations of the world

1. selling human flesh in the marketplace
2. granting homosexual couples marriage certificates (ketubot for mishkav Zachar) from the Medinah that grants them

One is to fall below Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah on the side of Free Hate. The other is to fall below Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah on the side of Free Love. When this happens the entire Medinah that grants these opens itself up to quick Judgement against it. G-d does not even take into acct. the merit of previous generations once the above happens. It is a form of makah v'patish to seal that medinah's coffin and its doom.

BS"D

How bout the convening of the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah 5776 (Sep. 15) (the final (official date of the JH 15 "drill") followed by the pope's (never before) address to US Congress Motzi Yom Kippur.

What's his name? Jorge Mario Bergoglio, -- Jorge is George in Spanish and Ber-GOG-leo ....GOG is in his name!!! Siman anybody?

A Yid: By then with G-d's help, we are praying for a lot more than Simanim. We are hoping for the real meat and potatoes of Geulah by Rosh HaShanah.

If and when the US supremes vote on that toeva law, if it's yes, will there be a whiplash effect in Tel Aviv? It's also as if they are voting for the White City too!

Back in the desert, why was it that the people wanted to kill Calev and Yehoshua because they stood up for HaShem? Why was it that whenever there was a dispute, the only way to settle it was via killing? Isnt that how Yishmael settles their disputes?

Also, I thought that HaShem forgave us for the Golden Calf but not for the Miraglim. So why do we need another 'forgiving' for the Calf?

He forgave us for the Golden Calf. At least he forgave those who thought that Hashra'at Shekhina would not take place between the horns of the Calf. (The confusion was/is created because there are lots of those who confuse the Prosperity that a Bull provides with the Utopian Peace of Yemot HaMashiach.) The ones who worshiped the calf ended up dead that very day 17th Tamuz 2448. The ones waiting for HaShra'at Shekhina were forgiven that following Yom Kippur. Like everything else, though, it came at a cost. Instead of entering a Gan Eiden existence on the 17th of Tamuz, He has wanted us to work thousands of years to see that we would not choose that same Calf again. Lo and behold at the end of history we have a Golden Calf that Jews don't want to leave. It was even founded on the 17th of Tamuz 5536 (July 4th, 1776) They like their home, the Golden Calf.

The choice of Georgia is not an accident at all. Actually the name George keeps reappearing, (including baby George of Prince William and Kate, but in a different context): George, Bergoglio, Giorgiobiani: all Georges, and all connected to Shavuot. How? In that infamous ceremony at "the room of the last pork sandwich", which I personally witnessed the afternoon of May 31, one week after Shavuot and their pentecost, the afternoon of the very same day KERRY was severely wounded, the orthodox church of GEORGIA was heavily represented. I asked one such monk in a brown robe sporting a long red beard: are you from Greece? He said, no, I am from GEORGIA. In the morning while Kerry was wounded, at the same time, there were lots and lots of representatives of the church of Georgia at Kever David, we were being helplessly FLOODED by them, a hostile crowd FLOODING Kever David, trying to drown us in their idolatry, lots of blond and scantily dressed Russian women celebrating their "shavuot', lehavdil. Them, and others too. But what struck me the most was the presence of those Georgian monks who participated in the ceremony of abomination upstairs in the afternoon.

Payback anyone?
