Guatemala: The 2nd Nation

Guatemala with a little less fanfare than the American opening became the second country to move their Embassy from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim today.  I thought that I should note the following:

Thank you to the descendants of another great ancient Civilization, the Mayans. They are the nation of Ophir ben Yoktan (Yucatan) who sent tons of gold (420 kikar of gold to be exact) to King Shlomo to build the First Temple in Yerushalayim, dutifully recorded in the Book of Kings. In the great merit of those who sent the gold from the Biblical El Dorado for this holy purpose, you have been given the privilege to be the second nation to open your Embassy in the City of Yerushalayim of Gold.

UPDATE: For those who may want a source as to how we know that the descendants of Yoktan went to the New World, we have the following verses from Chapter 10 of Bereishit:
ה  וּלְעֵבֶר יֻלַּד, שְׁנֵי בָנִים:  שֵׁם הָאֶחָד פֶּלֶג, כִּי בְיָמָיו נִפְלְגָה הָאָרֶץ, וְשֵׁם אָחִיו, יָקְטָן. 25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Yoktan.
כו  וְיָקְטָן יָלַד, אֶת-אַלְמוֹדָד וְאֶת-שָׁלֶף, וְאֶת-חֲצַרְמָוֶת, וְאֶת-יָרַח. 26 And Yoktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah;
כז  וְאֶת-הֲדוֹרָם וְאֶת-אוּזָל, וְאֶת-דִּקְלָה. 27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;
כח  וְאֶת-עוֹבָל וְאֶת-אֲבִימָאֵל, וְאֶת-שְׁבָא. 28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;

כט  וְאֶת-אוֹפִר וְאֶת-חֲוִילָה, וְאֶת-יוֹבָב; כָּל-אֵלֶּה, בְּנֵי יָקְטָן. 29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Yoktan.

Some commentators refer to "the earth was divided" statement as referring to the Dispersion of the nations at the Tower of Bavel.  The problem with that interpretation is that all 70 nations were dispersed, not just Peleg and Yoktan.  So the verse must refer to something else, something that G-d knew and that our sages may have not known about because of the generation in which they lived.  The fact is that HaShem created a vast ocean between EurAsia/ Africa and the Americas.  The ancients knew that this expanse existed.  Apparently, the sons of Eber who were Peleg and Yoktan decided to split the world between them.  The descendants of Peleg stayed in EurAsia/ Africa while the descendants of Yoktan eventually went to the Americas.  I heard this in the name of Rav Matityahu Glazierson Shlit"a.  I will have to find his discussion on this another time.  There is another implication from all this.  Notice that Yoktan had a son whose name was also Chavilah, just like Kush had a son with the identical name.  We learn from the 2nd chapter of Bereishit that the River Pishon flows around the Land of Chavilah, but the Torah does not tell us WHICH Chavilah.  If it is the Chavilah, the son of Kush, the reference would be to the Nile River as being the River Pishon, but if it is the Chavilah in the New World, then PiShoN might be the MiSSiSSiPPi.  Notice that Pishon is the name Mississippi backwards using Grimm's Laws of etymology where Ns and Ms are linguistically interchangeable.  So while Ophir stayed and built his Civilization around the Yucatan Peninsula, Chavilah migrated north to another Pre-Columbian Civilization in the Mid- Mississippi River Valley.  A larger discussion of the implications of this can continue in the Comments.

Well, I have a totally different opinion about Havilah and Ophir. Actually I wrote a research paper about it 10-15 years ago, a copy of which I have here, but which I will not share because it contains information I want to keep private. All I can tell you is that I came to a conclusion that is diametrically different from yours - or Rav Glazerson, whoever's.

I remember learning that this second dispersion was created when the original whole land mass separated into the continents that we have now and oceans flowed between them and destroyed some places because of the water displacement. People became separated who originally lived near each other. That's why certain species of the same animals are found very far from each other and the continents shapes fit into the others like puzzle pieces. In the future world, these land masses will rejoin again and people will be able to walk into Israel from land bridges created on the Mediterranean.

An interesting thing I read today was about how a Pakistani commander said they could destroy Israel in less than 12 minutes. http://muslimcouncil.org.hk/we-can-destroy-israel-in-less-than-12-minutes-says-pakistani-commander/

It reminded me of the Vilna Goan who said the war of Gog and Magog would take 12 minutes. Does this seem to you like it has some special meaning?

I wanted to discuss before Shavuot, Rashi's commentary on the River Pishon and how it can only be understood at the level of Drush. Whenever the Nile is referred to in Tana"kh, it is called the Ye'or. Throughout Shemot is is always called the Ye'or. In Yeshayahu 19, a prophesy about Mitzraim at the End of Days, the Nile is called the Ye'or. In one pasuk, verse 7

ז עָרוֹת עַל-יְאוֹר, עַל-פִּי יְאוֹר; וְכֹל מִזְרַע יְאוֹר, יִיבַשׁ נִדַּף וְאֵינֶנּוּ. 7 The mosses by the Nile, by the brink of the Nile, and all that is sown by the Nile, shall become dry, be driven away, and be no more.

the Nile is called the Ye'or THREE TIMES! So throughout the 24 books of Scripture, the Nile is the Ye'or. So if the Pishon is called the Nile by Rashi in the second chapter of Bereishit, that Peirush is most certainly true on the level of Drush (metaphor), but on the level of p'shat the Nile is the Ye'or. I will continue this discussion later.

Two interesting books.

On the subject of Peleg and the division of the land and how the earth has changed geologically many times since creation, and how carbon dating cannot be relied on, and a discussion of what the flood of Noach really was, is Rabbi Dovid Brown's "Mysteries of the Creation."

On the subject of Yuktan, Ophir, and the Mayan society, is Rav Mattityahu Glazerson and Professor Haralick's "TheMayan Culture and Judaism."

Wishing you all Shabbat Shalom and Chag Shavuaot Sameach.

Miriam, maybe it's a purification not a punishment?

5/23/2018 12:20 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Yes, Tikvah: There are places much worse off than Texas and Guatemala that in the end deserve far worse than either place. It is as if HaShem is "punishing" those places for their relatively minor sins before the bigger punishments ensue for places in the world which are far more rebellious against G-d. While those places have been hit by torrents of water, California was hit this past winter by all four "elements" over the course of a six week period. California has only seen the beginning of what it ultimately deserves.

This brings us to the Volcanic activity on Hawaii's Big Island. Hawaii is one of the few places in the world which is spelled only with the letters in HaShem's Name, (הוויי). This has caused me to think about something that Rav Anava said in one of his shiurim about the Zohar, that every Chelek of time (3.3 seconds of time), the Name of HaShem's letters are jumbled up in Atzilut and manifest throughout the Four Universes into Olam HaAsiyah....every 3.3 seconds. So if this volcanic activity IS a Geulah event sometime in the near future when HaShem's Name is spelled in a way that reverberates into Olam HaAsiyah as Hawaii, that volcano is going to blow.

I also believe that Hawaii’s ongoing eruptions are A Geula event. I have been thinking about this for a while but didn’t know what to link it to other than the rath of Shamayim. After all, mr “O” has a large home there. And that pedo’s island went up in flames also epstein’s Island aflame

Is there a connection? Is this volcano a dire warning to the world that more might be coming to punish? What of the other volcanos? What about the strange events with Yellowstone? Is this another sign of NIBIRU approaching? Last week the moon was rising in the east, then one night it was rising in the West? Strange.

Is there a connection of NIBIRU with Shamayim’s rath? Many believe so.

Hawaii seems to be a land of dichotomies and as such, can be viewed in various, maybe opposing, ways.

It mainly symbolizes paradise; but also hell – as all the recent volcano video clips show. It owes its very existence to volcanic action, the islands having been formed by what got spewed up from the fiery depths of hell. However, in time, it became as tropical paradise. Optimistically, perhaps this epitomizes redemption from hell. The Talmud says there’s a fine line between Gan Eden (Paradise) and Gehenom (Hell) (lit. separated by a thin curtain). You’d think they’d be polar opposites, as far away from each other as you can get. No place more than Hawaii illustrates the proximity of these two extremes. Not hard to imagine after seeing those volcanoes. This was well illustrated by a picture of a guy playing golf with lava spewing in the background.

Hawaii is not too far from being the geographical polar opposite of Jerusalem. As such, perhaps it displays an inverse relationship to the Holy City, which is known as the portal to Heaven. Being the 50th State – it may also be a symbolic portal. Hawaii’s connection to 50, was further broadcast by the popular TV series know as Hawaii Five-O. Hawaii is a tiny speck in the huge sea. The word for sea in Hebrew (yam) = 50. This blog has spoken numerous times of the significance 50. Though we tend to think of California of being the “progressive” vanguard of the United States; it may be Hawaii that is the portal through which the United States is lead. Recall the attack on Pearl Harbor, was what forced the U.S. into the fray of WWII. What happened in Hawaii pulled the other 49 states.
A word in Hebrew for portal is פה (mouth). As in פי הארץ the portal to the earth, which is an apt description for a volcano.

Dov mentioned the Hebrew name for Hawaii (הוויי) being composed solely of letters from the name of Hashem. Interestingly, this name appears at the minimal skip distance of 2 in Exodus 4:15 starting with the letter ה of the word פיהו.

וְדִבַּרְתָּ אֵלָיו, וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת-הַדְּבָרִים בְּפִיו; וְאָנֹכִי, אֶהְיֶה עִם-פִּיךָ וְעִם-פִּיהוּ, וְהוֹרֵיתִי אֶתְכֶם, אֵת אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲשׂוּן.
“And thou shalt speak unto him, and put the words in his mouth; and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.”

Amazingly the word mouth (portal) appears 3 times in this single verse which contains the name Hawaii! And the verse itself refers to instruction from God. So opposite Jerusalem and Zion, where Torah issues from, lays isolated Hawaii which seems to be a portal for other Divine messages.

In the past, Hawaii had a senator, Daniel Inouye, of blessed memory, who was a great friend a supporter of Israel. Now they have senator Brian Schatz who, supports same sex marriage and says our greatest supporter President Trump “is not capable morally, politically or in terms of competence to lead the free world”. Last year a judge in Hawaii blocked President Trump's travel ban from being enforced, just hours before it was to go into effect. Trump supporters called for a boycott of Hawaii. Hawaii has taken a turn for the worse.

So while Hawaii may symbolize redemption from evil, the active volcanoes are a vivid reminder, that life in paradise is not unconditional, it can be a two way street and must be earned. Heed the messages spewing out from the depths, seek good and be a portal towards the light.

I apologise for simply stating what is in the news but I missed this story, published yesterday, and it is of importance to all who read this blog.
The USA now believes that Iran has a missile development base previously undiscovered in a remote area of Iran, and that it is probable the base is developing Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles.
Then today, President Trump has cancelled the summit with North Korea...ostensibly because of North Korea's rhetoric.
But I think the discovery of the missile base in one of North Korea's main allies' weapons program, is connected to the main reason for the cancellation of the talks.

well, how much closer to world war are we today compared to yesterday? What will be Kim Jong Un's reaction? Clearly, Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo have seemingly figured out that this 6 month charade of American rapprochement with N. Korea has allowed Iran more time to work on N. Korea's and Iran's ICBM missile program in the Persian countryside far away from those pesky inspectors. Trump's brilliant firing of Tillerson and the Rasha McMaster to make room for his epiphany to finally hire Bolton and to move Pompeo to the State Dept. was Divine inspiration. Those RedStates where so few Jews live (except for Florida) get s'khar for this. Frankly I don't understand why the Blue States get any skhar whatsoever? They are danger zones for all those Jews who live there. Maybe it is give the Jews more time to finally realize how much danger they are in Brooklyn and Lakewood living behind enemy lines with evil neighbors. There have been a growing number of attacks from these neighbors in Brooklyn. Perhaps one should look at that and get out of these spiritual zombie zones in the Blue States.

Is there any reason why we didn't express our appreciation to Costa Rica and El Salvador, which had embassies in Yerushalayim for 24 years before pulling out in 2006?

I checked back with Devash, who pointed this out in the post I linked to, and investigated. I found that both countries left Y-m to please others (the UN and the Arabs) backed up with news sources - if/when she posts my comment. But that's after the fact.

I believe I can comment most accurately on the possible reasons behind the volcanic activity of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii. I lived on the Big Island of Hawaii for 10 years, from 2004 to 2014.
I have traveled all over the world, and there is no place that is more racist and backward thinking than Hawaii is. I am not here discuss if the Hawaiians are in the right to do what they do and people who are Caucasian deserve what is and has coming to them because of Hawaii's tainted past history, but I will say that the last 250 year history of Hawaii is complicated, and Hawaii's Ruling Ali'i Monarchy Caste had a lot to do with the downfall of the Hawaiian Kingdom. They GENERALLY hate white people and have a derogatory label to call any foreigner, especially white people, (For your information Jews are also looked at as Caucasian by the local Hawaiian Islanders)which is the term 'Haole' meaning a person without a soul. They will even try to kill if you are white, if given the chance to get away with it, because it almost happened to me.
Hawaii is a fantastic illusion of what people picture Paradise to be. The reality is far from the general idea people have of Hawaii being a Paradise. In my opinion, it takes the cake as the most outwardly racist place on Earth. Hawaii has huge social problems. Here are the statistics about where Hawaii places in
Politics, socioeconomic and education (You can look up these statistics yourself): Political corruption - #1 in the Union; Louisiana ranks #2. Education: Dead last - ranks #50 in the Union. Mississippi has a better education system then Hawaii. Ranks #1 in - Drug abuse, Alcohol consumption, domestic violence - including abused children and marriage partners -(Per Capita), children born out of wedlock, incest, welfare system recipients, and programs for anyone who has Hawaiian blood. I'm talking about in around 180 programs. They do not want to be part of America - it felt like a different country when I lived there, and they often mock and put down Main Landers.
Check out Rabbi Glazerson's new video on the Flood and Lava Flow in Hawaii - The Bible Code identifies the people of the Big Island as Rasha Goyim. Check it out if you don't believe me. Now we may have a better understanding why there is so much Volcanic activity on the Big Island - the problems in Hawaii have now reached its boiling point and is now boiling over, exploding and screaming out. Thanks for listening to me.

Just for the record, Tommy Robinson is not an alt-right scumbag like the liberal media portrays him. I heard he left EDL because of some racist attitudes he perceived in the movement (which surprises me because they welcome every race among their ranks), not to mention the fact that he respects Israel and the Jewish people. Of course, he loves his country and is against Islamic ideology, which makes him a monster according to the usual morons. Thanks Ezra Levant for being one of the few (if not the only) journalist who is reporting this authentic Mccarthyist scandal. Unfortunately all the disgusting stormfags are now making Tommy into one of their "martyrs", which only serves the interests of the liberal establishment in the UK.

The Tommy Robinson case, as the man himself is complicated.
The trial of Muslim paedophiles had reporting restrictions.
Such trials and gangs have been a feature of British life for the last 15 or so years.
It is very grim.
But Robinson was daft to risk the successful conviction of the paedophiles, and should have waited until after the trial had reached a verdict.
Now it could be declared a mistrial.
Robinson himself has said he is pro Israel, and his ex movemnt the English Defence League has Jewish chapters.
But, many of it's followers hate Jews and are almost Nazi like White Supremacists.

The EU has taken a lot of the enjoyment and convenience out of blogging. I have a new job with extended hours. When I was receiving comments in my email, I could approve them on the run while I was out. Now I have to wait until I get home with full access to Blogger. This creates delays in approving comments as I am sure you have noticed. The EU has proven itself to be Evil and Incompetent..... kind of like how Obobo was for 8 years as POTUS.

London: Yes, the trial has reporting restrictions, but this trial had reached the sentencing phase. There was no jury that would have been tainted by what Robinson did... as provocative as Tommy most certainly is. There was only a Judge who most assuredly had already made up his mind. In my mind he is a true Freedom Fighter. He hates racists and Jew haters. His association in the employment of Ezra Levant and Ezra's solid support for his former employee proves the point.

Robinson is being silenced because he threatens the child trafficking and sexual abuse of the British women abandon children. The British wing of the deep state and pedofile movement silenced him. He would have exposed those in office who are perverts. They are covering up the real reason. The pedo gang is all over the world in govt and the upper eschelon os societies. It’s a scourge threatening the world’s continuation. It might well be the impetus for the volcanic eruptions in Hawaii. More research needs to be done to find out. Trump has the whole world on his plate!

I do not understand something. Rosanne Barr is defended by Shmueli Boteach as a 20 year long friend. However, Rosanne was interviewed on TV wearing symbols of the 16th level of the Scottish Masonry. This is so confusing. If one reads the parameters of that, that she is a member of, and it’s association to Judaism, it is offputting. There are so many undercurrents occurring at this juncture of our history thT one needs to be very diligent and centered ONLY on HKB”H as our source of all. Like Rabbi Mizrachi said, one needs to be wary of all Rabbis, because their authenticity is suspect. What does this mean? Search and find out.

I, for one, do not overly endorse any Rabbi, “follow any one in particular” and only daily speak to HaShem from my heart and seek HIS guidance, while accepting HIS dominion over ALL of creation. The mind is the seat of one’s essence.

Hi Reb Dov,

Nice to read you again !
I have a question, both regarding jewish people still living in Houts Laaretz (even though it makes them unhappy until they move), and the goyim of the nations they live in, in particular in the UE and USA.

Regarding to what is happening to Tommy Robinson in the UK, or here in France, is quite the same : every one who criticise radical Islam is casted aside, while their countries are becoming more and more islamic countries, really kingdoms of lies...

And as far as I know, with the last gueoula, all the Jews in galout will finally come back to Israel (while 1/5 only got out of Mitsraim).

So here is my question : what will happen to the 70 nations, once the jewish people leave France, the UK, Germany, and some day the USA... ?
Will those nations finally disappear, swallowed by Islam, or will they get back to their feet, like in the USA since Donald Trump got elected ?

If they disappear, why ? God wants them to live, not die, and follow Israel who is the bekhor (firs born), but not the only "child".

So my question is : should jewish people in houts laaretz help the goyim to debunk all those lies (about Gaza, and Iran and so on and so on..), or just forget about that and come back in Israel ?

Thanks for your insights

I just wanted to recognize a reality that is very sad since we have been speaking about the Volcano in Hawaii. Over 60 Guatemalans just died when their Fire Volcano erupted in the last 24 hours. It is a horrible tragedy, and I pray that those who were injured have a full recovery. It just goes to show that we just do not know all the causes of human suffering in the world. On the surface, the last country that deserved for this to happen was Guatemala.

Maurice, the best answer is what Rav Lazer Brody just published about the third prediction of Rav Yehudah Zev Leibowitz zt"l. The other two predictions have already come to pass with pinpoint accuracy. I would pay attention to the third prediction. I have posted this third prediction on my blog, but only now has Rav Lazer spoken about this prediction on his blog. And even here Rav Lazer is being kind by refusing to use the words "American Shoah". Those were the words that Rav Lazer used when he told me about this third prediction six or seven years ago. At this juncture, Rav Lazer is simply saying that Jews in America will eventually be forced to flee the US or at least to flee the Blue States that so many leftist Jews themselves helped to morally debase. If this is the case in Brooklyn, how much the more so will this be the case in Paris. The US Debt Clock shows that US debt has almost reached 21.2 trillion dollars. If an economic downturn were to ever occur, the Fed Reserve has not tools to jumpstart the Western economies because interest rates cannot be allowed to rise significantly so that Interest on all that debt cannot reach catastrophic proportions. So when the economy takes a nosedive, there is no way to significantly lower interest rates which are hovering just above Zero Percent. Because of Trump, America will likely not be the source of a Crash. Most likely the Crash will begin in Europe.

Mark: I am not arguing with you anymore.

The Vilna Gaon did a tikkun on the 2/3rds of Mankind that will perish in the final war. He said that only 1/3 will die while another 1/3 will be rectified by the severe plague described in Zecharia 14. It seems to be a description of the effects of a nuclear blast on the human body.

יב וְזֹאת תִּהְיֶה הַמַּגֵּפָה, אֲשֶׁר יִגֹּף יְהוָה אֶת-כָּל-הָעַמִּים, אֲשֶׁר צָבְאוּ, עַל-יְרוּשָׁלִָם; הָמֵק בְּשָׂרוֹ, וְהוּא עֹמֵד עַל-רַגְלָיו, וְעֵינָיו תִּמַּקְנָה בְחֹרֵיהֶן, וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ תִּמַּק בְּפִיהֶם. 12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the peoples that have warred against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Since all of our medrashim point to the final war being an attempt by Persia to take over the Western World, when the Persians are ready to do so, that is how it will begin or at least how it will end.

Neshama: You brought up two characters who are already infamous for their obvious flaws. Roseann Barr has been a kook from the start. Supposedly, a Jewess who became a mormon and now something else; she was a fierce leftist democrat and all of a sudden became a Trump supporter. Then, out of the blue she twitters something completely outrageous at the height of her new successful sitcom because there must be a screw loose. Then her Rabbi Boteach is even stranger. We all know he was thrown out of the Lubavitch movement; he supposedly is an orthodox rabbi but everything he says and does is definitely 'Reform' Judaism. These people who act like kooks are usually kooks and no attention should be paid to them on anything, but we need to remember we are truly living in bizzaro world at this time of chaos and confusion.
Reb Bar Leib: The dire predictions do not need to materialize. I do not believe there will be 'nuclear' war. These harsh prophecies, we learn, are what can happen if we do not return and do teshuva, but we are told that in the end all Jews will do teshuva (of course, each according to his knowledge of Torah). Do believe that antisemitism will increase and that will be the catalyst for Jews to make Aliya. Hopefully, Geula will come b'rachamim because H' is All Merciful. H' will destroy all the evil doers and their evil from the world.

Hawaii's Big Island Volcano is causing a disaster of Biblical proportions. with no end in sight...

Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un is next week in Singapore. As we approach Rosh Chodesh Tamuz, we are approaching the time when the Final Tzadee becomes manifest in our march through 6000 years of history. It is the 27th letter of the Hebrew Alephbet which includes the Five final letters separately from their bent forms. If the name Michael Pence (מיכאל פנץ) includes all five final letters with four of them in bent form and the final letter, the tzadee, in Sofit form, then the bending of that Final Tzadee will bring Mashiach, hopefully early on in those last 222.22 years of history.

US Debt Clock is racing toward 21.2 trillion dollars.If there is a serious downturn in the economy, US interest rates are still at historic lows. So there would be no way to jumpstart a depressed economy. Right now a racing GDP is keeping pace with a racing National Debt. But with the annual budget deficit greater than 760 billion dollars and rising rapidly, how much longer can this keep going? And even if Interest rates begin to rise, then all that will do is cause the Interest on the National Debt, which is already part of the deficit, to rise to more than one trillion dollars per year!

To a great extent, UK prisons are segregated between Muslim and non Muslim prisoners and have been for the past decade, though this is not total segregation and there is some freedom of association.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

London: I have thought about this for a long time. One of two things is happening.

1. Trump is a Messianic figure. He is Esav taking on his original role in the world to destroy Evil. In this case he may have found a peaceful way to do it with a lot of Divine help. The internal core of Kim Jong Un's nuclear test site at Mantapsan Mountain collapsed on Hoshana Rabbah 5778. It happened on the Hoshana Rabbah to fulfill the 5777th pasuk in the Torah about a blast from HaShem's nostrils:

כב כִּי-אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי, {ר} וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית; {ס} וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ, {ר} וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים. {ס} 22 For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world She'ol, and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.

So this prophesy could have happened in one of two ways. Either a nuclear war would have started with the bombing of She'ol (Seoul), South Korea, OR as it happened, the thermonuclear test blast in early September made the internal structure of Nuke Mountain so unstable that it collapsed internally on Hoshana Rabbah. This likely set Kim Jong Un's nuclear program back years since he apparently had no other site to test his nuclear devices. So with a big assist from G-d, Kim Jong Un's bravado collapsed on Hoshana Rabbah 5778, and he caved into Trump's pressure. This is one possibility.

6/19/2018 12:53 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The other possibility is the ruse of the millennium. Just one week before the meeting between D. Trump and Kim Jong Un, Un "surprisingly" invited the Butcher of Damascus, Bashar Assad, with the blood of about 600,000 innocent people on his hands to come to N. Korea for a State visit. A state visit with one of the most evil people of the last 100 years is not a recipe for teshuvah. What is up Kim Jong Un's sleeve that he would do such a thing? Well it should be obvious. Historically, the Family Kim has been working with the Family Assad in Syria to develop nuclear weapons and to breed nuclear fissionable material, Plutonium to be exact. Our internal enemy TRMLO (Olmert) from Medrash Sefer Eliyahu, the last PM from the Erev Rav, bombed Assad's nuclear reactor back in 2007 which was being used or was planned to be used for Plutonium production for both Assad's and N. Korea's nuclear programs. This was in total concert with him being from the Erev Rav because, N. Korea is Esav's enemy and therefore also the enemy of the Erev Rav. And anyone working with Assad is most assuredly working with the Persians on the same programs. So Gog ben Gog Bush Jr. was partially right. There is an Axis of Evil between N. Korea and Iran but NOT with Iraq. It was not smart to lump in Iran with Hussein's Iraq in 2003 since Iran and Hussein's Iraq were always bitter enemies. The third partner in the Axis of Evil with N. Korea and Iran happens to be Syria. So if Kim Jong Un, because of economic pressures, is being forced to "curtail" his nuclear program, he may simply be transferring over work on this joint program to Syria and the Ayatollahs in Iran. It has been a joint program for years anyway. This would explain the perplexing need for Kim Jong Un to invite Assad on a State Visit to Pyongyang.

Tommy Robinson is a political prisoner. This is obvious from Ezra Levant's reporting on this entire fiasco. Tommy was reporting on these Muslim Rape squads, the the Islamofascists in the British Govt. were under orders from the large Islamic population in England to shut him up. By putting him in prison, they have effectively shut him up. Whether he dies in jail or whether he is just in jail to keep him quiet for over a year, the British legal system is so obviously corrupted to the core by a Pakistani version of the Muslim Brotherhood. What type of trial is this that within 24 hours he has been tried and convicted and sentenced? Was there even a day for him to prepare a defense? This is so nuts. It is hard to believe that the British would dare complain about how the IDF is doing a yeoman's job keeping the Gaza border from being infiltrated by terrorists, even if the IDF commanders are more worried about "World Public Opnion" than allowing the soldiers to defend the border.

Reb Dov

Thank you for your comment, it is great to read someone who can express themselves well and highlight the key points.

I too found it strange that Tommy Robinson was convicted with lightning speed.
Trials here usually take two or three months to progress from initial arrest and charges to sentencing.

There are paralells between Robinson and Trump.
They are friends of Israel, but some of their supporters are extreme right wing anti-Semites.

When PM Netanyahu was in London two weeks ago, he met with British PM Theresa May.
Her body language towards him at the public photo-op was cold.
Her language too, simply expressing "Concern" for the loss of Palestinian lives. "Concern" from my experience here, is a very patronising word.

Bibi defined Israel's position as defensive, then there was another disagreement over the Iran nuclear deal, which the UK is still party to.

So what ever may have been agreed behind closed doors, and the UK and Israel do have a two-way military and intelligence relationship, the public face was one of disagreement and icy distance.

Theresa probably calculated that she could gamble on appearing almost antIsraeli, knowing that hardly any British Jews will vote for the anti-Zionist Labour Party's Jeremy Corbyn.

But her actions have not gone down well with me.

And how will that go down in the region and the world, and with his own people - just starting to see a different tone on tv - or even within his own power circle? China seems happy with Americans gone eventually from peninsula, they reckon, and war games suspended. You can loose credibility easily when policies become too schizofrenic. Sanction remain for now, and US can still easily destroy the whole place, let alone the Seoul dilema. Which i feel is the other side of a false narrative. Why need the nukes for if you can destroy Seoul conventionally? And the conflict is about the nukes ?! The launchings were their finest hour, but that was one moment in time. This whole nuclear thing is a stupid concept in order to get some leverage. Better stop that straight away, or others like Venezuela may want to have nukes also in order to defend themselves against US. So why didn't they ? Because it is (part of ) a fase narrative too; That all need nukes against US, cause they are soo bad people.

What makes me most sick about all this is how much this type of news discourages the Aliyah of good Jews from the United States and France. Ultimately they will be in greater danger by remaining in the US or France, but who wants to make Aliyah to an Erev Rav run Hell on earth where you must use measured tones to speak your mind?

@Tikvah

All reports do not claim Tommy Robinson is in a prison with 71% Muslim population, because no such percentage of Muslim inmates exists in the UK. The highest is 30%.

The reports are from right wing propaganda.

As reported by The Daily Mirror, he is HMP Hull (7%) or HMP Leicester (14%).

The authorities will be keeping him in segregation, to avoid making him a martyr for the far right.
If he were to be killed in prison, there would be large race riots in the UK, which they want to avoid.

If they want to get rid of him, they will wait until he is freed and make it look like an accident.

WW3 will take place between those who seek to destroy us in various ways, specifically between Amaleq lead Persia and Amaleq lead Western Europe. Places which have tortured us throughout history will be severely effected in this war such in Russia and in the Ukraine. What does not have to happen is the forced division of Yerushalayim by the nations of the world. They had their chance. They tried to implement the pain they wanted to inflict upon us during Obama lead UN Sec. Council votes when he was a lame duck, but apparently with the election of Donald Trump and the implementation of his policies (moving the embassy to the seam line in Yerushalayim and striking down of the Iran deal), a unified front to divide Yerushalayim at the hands of the Umot HaOlam by sending international troops has likely been nullified. That negative prophesy apparently has been nullified. The contrast of the French Pieces Conference of precisely 70 nations five days before Trump's Inauguration in January of 2017 stresses this point. If Hillary had won, international troops in the Jordan Valley would already be pulling hundreds of thousands of settlers in Yesha and half of Yerushalayim out of their homes. It would be happening right now. HaShem, because of the Shoah and our intense suffering throughout history, has altered His original decree.

Although Brexit may still turn out to be a brilliant move, letting millions of Muslims into the island certainly isn't. She might need Trump and has to smarten up.
And at July 2 there is a meeting here b.t.w. at press club of the parlement in which Dr. Remco Breuker Of leiden University of Korea studies will be speaking. He says that they publiced a protocol years ago stating that 2017 will be the year of testing. And it is all to get leverage. So it underscores my false narrtive concept. But perhaps the real story is that the weapons are indeed meant against Israel. And they work with Iran, and Obama gave them the money. There is even a masonic lodge in DPRK, i kid you not ! Perhaps it's all a show (?)Would have loved Mossad to be able to spy on that Assad kim meeting. But maybe they did, we don't know what we don't know. Don't know if it is an unknown unknown as Rumsfeld said. Da'as or da'at (?) Anyway Dutch PM Rutte is at White House July 2 also, and there is live coverage of that also at the event i have ticket for. I'll be listening and asking.
Do hope comments don't take days to get trough, if you publish them at all, which is alright. If you read them, and they may help you one way or another, that is fine also. Bye, shalom.

Latest news I heard is that Trump invited Kim to UN General assembly. Don't know what Hebrew year that would be, and if it is good or bad. Experts said Trump made Kim salonfahig /acceptable-respectable and he got all he ever wanted. I tried to argue that he could lose that easily again if he would flip flop, but they looked very Zombi like when I said that. Geneneral undertone was that since it is Trump who is just as mad as Kim something must be all wrong. Nothing on Obama-Iran connection.

My guess is that the British civil service and government are up to is being worried about the economic effects of Brexit.
So they are attempting to boost trade with vibrant economies, not least the hi-tech giant that is Israel.
So they send the most popular Royal over to facilitate trade deals.
They also made him meet the Palestinians, in a sort of coded warning to Israel that "We will do business with you but we want you to change the way you do things in the West Bank and Gaza.
The Israelis in return primarily used it as a marketing opportunity to boost tourism to Tel Aviv, with photoshoots on the beach and around the Rotschild area.

This comes less than three months after Home Secretary Amber Rudd resigned.
So cabinet ministers are lasting about as long as English Premier League football managers!
But it shows what a mess Brexit has caused...I wonder if it is "Death by a thousand cuts." for the UK?

President Trump will visit the UK from Thursday 12th July to Sunday 15th July.
There are massive demonstrations planned in the Westminster area of London near the Houses of Parliament.
- Anti-Trump, Pro-Trump and "Free Tommy Robinson."
Plus a giant inflatable "Trump Baby" will be in the skies over London, consent given by Mayor Siddiq Khan.

Isn't it funny; two world leaders have a meeting, behind closed doors obviously for the most part, and yet in no time journalists and experts world wide seem to know who won and who is stupid, and that it is all wrong anyway. I'd say the media hysteria is an echo or mirror image of what really went on. If you see what i mean. If Ezechiel 38 and 39 have been sweetened by Trump (and Putin) and Trump recoqnizing Jeruzalem has to do with Ezechiel 40 obviously, than i would humbly suggest that the way to understand it is trough the principle of the communicating vessels. With Trump and congress and media on one side, and Russia and - in relation to Israel- Iran on the other. Of course you can bring the Sunni- Shia devide, and the EU and all the rest of it into the equation. It is a subtle balance. What if Russia really attacked Israel? Would congress in order to look good, urge Trump to do something, or would Trump act soon anyway on himself? We all know the answer to that one, but what will media say? But besides the fact that you guys can only relly on HaShem. You know, American marines did fire at Russians who wanted to cross the river in Syria not so long ago. WW3 could have started already, but apperantly you don't need WW3 to get to Ezechiel 40. Of course the other side ( remember the palestinian flags at DNC) don't want that. They want Jews out, and keep STN in. So that explains the anti Trump media outrage for me. They are thirsty for Jewish blood and are not getting it, meantime what if Trump really did something stupid, or anti Jewish interests wouldn't Hashem impeache him? All while it is Germany that is depending on Russian gas, and needing America for it's defence. The opposite really of the whole Mueler and what have you narrative. So it is all a subtle balancing act, with Arab immigrants hassling Europe and many voters liking Trump. But not what the media here is feeding the people. I think STN is always playing doubling down system in the end of days casino. But TPTB are stupid, and are flussing themselves through the toilet. The vessels will keep communicating within the whole sweetened Ezechiel 38 39 situation. Is there any other way ?

I have found it hard as of late to accept the situation here, where Generals decide how and when we should defend ourselves so that we can live and thrive based on World Public Opinion. Of all the things about living in Eretz Yisrael, this is the hardest thing to adjust to. Our top Generals live in perpetual high school. If they are not popular in the halls of Europe, they go home and pout because they are not beloved by Mankind. Then they get scared as bullies like Federica Mogherini, the EU's top witch, shakes her vile little finger at them. It truly makes me ill, their cowardice and their groveling posture. And they have the audacity to prevent Jews who fear G-d more than they fear Mankind from ever joining their exclusive club.

As far as davening at the Western Wall, I have come to the conclusion for myself, the only place that makes sense to do so is in the tunnels at the closest point to the Holy of Holies where the Divine Presence rested and where Her lingering Presence is most pronounced. The part in the Jewish Quarter is simply a retaining wall for the Southern Ct. of the Gentiles built by Herod. It does not even face where the Heichal was. Take the tunnel tour, and Daven down there.

I had the privilege to go into the tunnels once. Regretfully I did not daven there, I treated it as a historical tour.
I hope I can go again and daven there.

In the UK, the opposition Labour party has rejected the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism.
With May's government in turmoil over Brexit, there is every chance a Conservative Party leadership challenge will happen after the Brexit deadline in March 2019. I think they will refrain from one until then.
This could see chaos, infighting continuing, and a General Election.
Withe Conservatives split, and a UKIP resurgence dividing the Conservative vote further, Labour could win.
I have my passport ready, things could turn worse here for Jews.
But we are not at French levels of anti-Semitism or violence.

They are expanding the cooling system of a nuclear site that can only be used for military purposes. They are not taking apart solid fuel sites for their rockets. They are only taking apart liquid fuel sites which are the technology of the previous generation. I think Kim Jong Un is playing a lot of slick games. And he is moving much of his nuclear and missile testing and production to Syria and Iran. He has invited Bashar Assad to come on a State visit. Now why would he do that if he is trying to butter up Donald Trump? Gordon Chang knows what he is talking about.

The Houthis two days ago tried to attack a Saudi oil tanker in the Strait of Mandeb.

This is the main event when it blows up into a full scale military action. This is the war prophesied in the Yalkut Shimoni, The Zohar, The Talmud in Avodah Zarah and Yoma, and the Medrash Sefer Eliyahu. It could come to a quick end, or it could last up to four years until the end of the coming Shmittah year. That is the worst case scenario. It begins in Yemen because the last pasuk for prophesy in Shofarot on Musaph Rosh HaShanah is:

יד וַיהוָה עֲלֵיהֶם יֵרָאֶה, וְיָצָא כַבָּרָק חִצּוֹ; וַאדֹנָי יְהוִה בַּשּׁוֹפָר יִתְקָע, וְהָלַךְ בְּסַעֲרוֹת תֵּימָן. 14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning; and the Lord GOD will blow the Shofar, and will go with stormwinds of Yemen.

Dov and Everyone Thank you for your condolences. Sara was a very special soul. She died very suddenly without prior illness. An hour after our Shabbat Meal on Friday Night June 29th she began to complain of stomach discomfort then severe pain. Two and half hours later at Shaare Zedek she flatlined. It took 40 minutes to restart her heart, very unstable she was taken in for emergency surgery to remove her entire stomach. It had developed a twisted section that became necrotic and then burst causing massive septic shock. The next day on very aggressive life support her EEG was flat. She passed away as we read to her favorite parsha sheets from Rav Winston, the Ravs Kahana, the book Eretz Israel in the Parsha etc.

Sara was a woman of endless chessed, mitzvoth, and love for Hashem, our people, Aliyah and the land. She loveed this blog and we read from it at the Shabbat table every week. We are told by the Rabbis from Ketubot that one who passes suddenly with massive pain due to a stomach is passing quickly paying all their remaining correction in this life and going on to be with Hashem. It is said to the death of a Zaddik or Zaddiket.

I just wanted you to know that while Sara would never presume to write in this blog, she was an avid follower and we spent countless hours over the years discussing it. Your blog has great merit and value, don't let any detractors or pests deter you from this mission.

Dov, what do you think of the comment I made in response to the following tape by rabbi Miller:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7l8DaKdJZMw

We can only speculate for what specific sins the Holocaust was decreed in shamaim against the Jewish people. We are not prophets. There is a theory that says the Holocaust happened because Jews didn't make Aliyah, while others like rav Miller Z''L point out desecration of Shabbat, assimilation, heresy and other factors. However, it's important to note that, as rabbi Yosef Mizrachi shlita says, until 200 or 250 years ago (when the haskalah started in Europe), all Jews were more or less observant. It doesn't mean they were all necessarily tzadikim, but most of them kept basic laws such as Shabbat, prayer, tefillin, kashrut, etc, while intermarriage and assimilation were extremely rare (basically you had to convert to Christianity and leave your community if you wanted to marry the goim). And despite that, Jews were massacred time and again in the diaspora. If chillul Shabbat or not keeping mitzvot were the reasons that provoked the Holocaust, then why they were killed before that, when they did kept mitzvot, even when they were strictly religious and living in ghettos, such as during the Middle Ages? The answer is that maybe not keeping the rituals or not learning Torah was not the only reason why so many tragedies happened to the Jewish people throughout history, but it was related to the fact that Jews were too comfortable living in exile and were too lazy to pack their bags and go to Eretz Israel and work the land, even when they were able to do so (such as today). After all, the Torah was made to be fulfilled in Israel, not shmutz lahaaretz (per Rambam). Jews living as subject in foreign countries is the biggest chillul Hashem. In addition, you should know that another Ze'ev (not Zeev Jabotinsky, but a big mekubal by the name of Rav Yehudah Zeev Leibowitz zt"l) warned about a Holocaust in America before Mashiach comes (that's besides the spiritual Holocaust that already happened thanks to assimilation, liberalism and intermarriage). You can ask Lazer Brody if you don't believe me. btw, he also predicted the civil wars in Arab countries. The FC individuals (who are not crazy about Zionism) also warned Jews in the exile to make Aliyah as soon as possible, because Israel will be the safest place. My humble advice (which doesn't come near big tzadikim like Rav Miller, Rav Kahana or Rav Leibowitz, of course) is the following: if you keep talking lashon harah against Israel like the meraglim, you can only dream of getting saved when Mashiach comes. Better focus on ahavat chinam and doing kiruv instead of talking about how bad other Jews are, including those who keep mitzvot.

The Holocaust happened like all of our Churbanot because we entered the Tochachah in Devarim (Deuteronomy) with the Destruction of the Second Temple where it says:

The Lord will cause you to be broken before your enemy: you will come out against them in one direction, but you will flee from them in seven directions. And you will become a terrifying [example] to all the kingdoms on earth. כהיִתֶּנְךָ֨ יְהֹוָ֣ה | נִגָּף֘ לִפְנֵ֣י אֹֽיְבֶ֒יךָ֒ בְּדֶ֤רֶךְ אֶחָד֙ תֵּצֵ֣א אֵלָ֔יו וּבְשִׁבְעָ֥ה דְרָכִ֖ים תָּנ֣וּס לְפָנָ֑יו וְהָיִ֣יתָ לְזַֽעֲוָ֔ה לְכֹ֖ל מַמְלְכ֥וֹת הָאָֽרֶץ:

The Holocaust was the 7th and final direction where each Churban was supposed to last 300 years in accordance to the Gemorrah in Megillah 6a. Since the last Churban, the Shoah, was so intense, 300 years of suffering was packed into 6 years. Keep in mind that the Conquest of Poland began on the 17th of Elul 5699, 300 years before the year 6000. So the Physical aspects of the Geulah could succeed the Shoah with the Founding of the State of Israel shortly thereafter. Another way of looking at this, is that the 70 years between the Destruction of Bayit Sheini in 3830 and the crushing of the Bar Kochba Revolt and the execution of Rabbi Akiba just before 3900 were the ones that were harugei Malkhut. Then came the 300 year cycles of suffering for Yesod (3900- 4200 or 140ce to 440ce), Hod (440-740ce), Netzach (740ce to 1040ce), Tifereth (1040ce- 1340ce), Gevurah (1340-1640), and Chessed (1640-1940) purified those Sefirot in our Animal Souls. Since the Holocaust began right before the onset of 3900, the Satan was allowed to continue to prosecute us for 6 more years since there are also 6 days between Tisha B'Av and Tu B'Av when the Churban of Tisha B'Av subsided. More later.

Also keep in mind that it is no coincidence that the Chassidic movement came into being about 100 years into the 300 years of Chessed because of the Chelminiki Churban of Tach veTat (1648- 1649).

First, we must always remember that our thoughts are not HIS Thoughts, so we do not have a very clear answer to why such sufferings to our people throughout the millenia. We know that it's because of our sins that we were punished time and again when H' forewarns us first in our Torah of what will happen if we do not obey His Commands. But, we must also remember that whenever there is communal punishment, the good and righteous suffer along with the sinners. The greatest sufferings and loss of precious Jewish life in the horrific holocaust was in Poland. Poland was full of yeshivot and righteous Jews and over a million children (who are sinless) were slaughtered. That is why our Rabbis hesitate to give answers on 'why'! Only H' knows the exact answer.
Believe that history has to play itself out and as Reb Dov just explained, hopefully, such punishments are over because the time for our Redemption has arrived and H' will bring all Jews home with rachamim and chesed; but now HE will pay back all those those nations that persecuted our people from the beginning of time, and the world will know there is Only H'!

Avrohom Avinu chose suffering instead of Gehinom at the Bris Bain HaMetzarim for his descendants until Moshiach is openly revealed.

Rabbi Jessin clearly explains many times that the only way for Yiddin to complete The Tikun is by suffering as Our Torah and Teshuva is not sufficient.

In order for Yiddin to undo the 1st 20 generations of Kilkul since Shaishes Yemai Breishis, we needed to suffer so terribly throughout our History.

It is very clear that if HaSHem did not want us to suffer so much pain and torture that HaShem could have stopped it - that HaShem chose to let it continue means that this is what HaShem wants just like the 10 Martyrs.

Ginno, when you think about all the sins against HKB”H that the Jews are responsible for, there is a Din V’Heshbon. Like Midda kneged Midda, and Mitzvah goreres Mitzvah. Like follows Like.

We do not appreciate or really understand the level of how the Jewish Nation is supposed to be according to the Torah and Hashem. Because we are so far from that fateful day at Har Sinai (even at that time there was severe sin) we have no real appreciation of the spiritual nature which we are supposed to reach. And that includes me.

I appreciate the answers, but I wasn't talking about the Holocaust. That generation was full of sins, heresy and assimilation. We can only speculate about the specific sins that provoked such horrible tragedy. I was referring mainly to all the persecutions BEFORE the haskalah started in Europe, when there was so much holiness over there, specially during the Middle Ages when there was no assimilation and most Jews were keeping mitzvot (except for a minority that converted to Christianity because of the difficult conditions). You are not going to tell me that Jews were punished back then because they were liberals, secular or desecrated Shabbat. And I seriously doubt ALL of them were reincarnations of wicked people from ancient times. That's why I said that MAYBE it's because they didn't try to come back to Eretz Israel, like Yehuda Halevi or the Ramban did for example, even though back then crossing the sea was very dangerous and Eretz Israel was desolate, not to mention under foreign rule (the exact opposite of today, which makes a kitrug against frum Jews living currently in shmutz lahaaretz). The rule in the Gemara is "there's no suffering without sin". Any thoughts?

I wrote a post about this Ginno. When we could no longer offer up Qorbonot for the nations of the world because of the Destruction of the Beit HaMiqdash, WE BECAME THOSE QORBONOT! We became the 70 bullocks for the nations of the world, ten for each of the 7 Churbonot. Ten harugei Malkhut, Ten harugei Yesod, etc..... Of course it took a lot more than just ten for each Churban, but the principle was the same where for each 300 year period, WE became that "Suffering Servant" in Yishayahu 53. The irony of course is, the Xtian world thinks that Yoshke was that suffering servant, and they often killed us because we did not accept the lie! If Shlomo's Beit HaMiqdash had stood forever, none of that would have been necessary. But at that time our ancestors had chosen the path of the Tochachah and not the path of brachah for the next 2500 years.

Gino, this book was written during the holocaust, and it’s final premise is that we were punished because we didn’t return to our Land. It echos your thought about not returning to Eretz Yisrael. “Eim HaBanim Semeicha' was written by Rabbi Yisachar Shlomo Teichtal, and published in 1943. The title is taken from Psalms and means “A Joyous Mother of Children”.

“Teichtal grew up as a staunch anti-Zionist Chasid of the Munkatsher Rebbe. However, during the Holocaust, Rabbi Teichtal changed his position from the one he espoused in his youth. The physical product of that introspection is the book, Eim HaBanim Semeicha, in which he specifically retracts his previous viewpoints, and argues that the true redemption can only come if the Jewish people unite and rebuild the land of Israel. Many of his coreligionists viewed the book with skepticism, some going so far as to ban Rabbi Teichtal from their synagogues.

“In the book, Rabbi Teichtal strongly criticizes the Haredim for not supporting the Zionist movement. When it was written, it was a scathing criticism of the Jewish Orthodox establishment, and Agudat Israel in particular.”

Purely b'itah according to one way of looking at the end of Sefer Daniel, the year of Geulah is 1335 years after laying the foundation cornerstone of the Golden Dome of the Rock (the Abomination that makes Desolate) over the Holy of Holies (or over the place of the Mizbeach since it is unclear which was really placed under the Dome). The cornerstone was laid in 687ce. 1335 years later is 2022ce which happens to be a Shmittah year 5782. If this is the case, the issue of 1290 years that preceded 687ce needs to be discussed. more later....

The Holy One, blessed be He, wants to crown the King Messiah with mercy so that all the Jews will be privileged to be with the Messiah in public.

We in Israel have the Holy One, Blessed is He. There are the mothers in Heaven who thank God three times a day. Three times a day - evening, noon and morning, each one goes to her own job, prays to God and thanks him. Every righteousness in the sky has a temple and all the righteous women, each and every one of them, come out three times a day from the temple, praying and thanking the Holy One, Blessed is He, and returning each one to her temple. There are also drums and dances. Also Leah, our mother, who is in the nest of a bird with the upper Messiah, leaves the Temple three times a day, thanks the Holy One, Blessed be He, for having the upper Messiah in her hands and waiting for a sign from the Holy One, blessed be He. The lower Messiah is below in the hands of Rachel our mother, even waiting. Both up and down are waiting.

Most of them know who the Messiah is and will continue to know with certainty that the Messiah is, even the people, repentants and all Torah scholars, in Israel and around the world.

The messiah below works in difficulties. Goes through difficulties in the war against impurity and against lechery in order to correct the world. Messiah is against assimilation and against lewdness in the world. The people of Israel must repent in order to be better for the Jews and less burden for the war against impurity in the world. There is no return in the matter of the Messiah - he continues to be revealed! Messiah lives in our generation and in our country. Say three times a day: 'Messiah lives in our generation and in our land.' Whoever believes in the Holy One, Blessed is He, and in Messiah His servant will have the right to be in the first circle and eternal life!

Is it possible that the construction of the Dome of the Rock began earlier than 687ce? I saw two websites say 683ce, which if true we would reach 1335 years this year. Also, is it possible that some other type of idol was placed in that location prior to the building of the Dome of the Rock? Perhaps the Dome of the Rock was its housing?

Shabbat Shalom,
this is your Noahide reporting:
How typicall for the sad state of affairs on this planet, how pathetic;
https://www.debka.com/mivzak/paraguayan-embassy-moved-back-from-jerusalem-to-tel-aviv/

This stormy woman Trump had an affair with was in a long talkshow interview on tv here yesterday. How pathetic and all that also, but is here name an allusion to (the book of) Daniel? I mean it is her name, and even in 2022 Trump could still be in office, or out. But than it could really really be storming with the US taking embassy back to TA also, or no embassy at all, what have you, if that were to be the case ?

Lots of other important things on debka i think, check it out!

Yes, there is one or two sources that claim that the Dome of the Rock was built four years earlier. Just look on the Web. The preponderance of the sources say that the cornerstone was laid in 687 or 688 ce, and that the building was completed in 691ce. The construction may have begun with the building of a foundation in 685ce. Almost everyone agrees that it was completed in 691ce. Shabbat Shuvah Shalom.

Perhaps it is fitting to let you know the in a way for Trumpsters encouraging news that the new year did begin with a bombshell in my country, The netherlands. Although the bombshell has a surrealistic edge to it, since it is big news that finally made it to the official tv newshour show. What was a fake news conspiray internethoax for years that could be ignored became an official headache for the government and it's allies overnight. And the news that broke September 11 was that the Dutch government gave uniforms and phones, and even money, and pickup trucks to the Al Qaida related rebels in Syria for a couple of years. This week the King reads the State of the Union for the new fisical year, but next week there will be a debate. Of course there is allready plenty of debate, although some want to keep it quiet still. They must be knowing that this is the beginning of the end since Holland did not operate in a vacuüm, or on own instignation in Syria obviously. There is just one word to explain all this; O B A M A, i wrote as a comment on a FB page of a well known professor. ( Afshin Ellian) But Trump should push much harder against Hillbilllies, Obama Bin lada crowed. Get them investigated for all they did wrong. let's get this thing gain momemtum before midterm elections. Don't let them off the hook ! Break the 'we love Obama klipa' while you can!

I was at Ari Fuld's funeral last night. It was moving and horribly sad at the same time. The unexpected turn of events prevented me from writing last night. I am sorry.

Heaven took a real gem. Ari was indeed a lion, a great defender of Israel, both on the battlefield and the Internet. May Hashem avenge his blood.

On a different note, I'm angry at the authorities of Gush Etzion who refuse to build a barrier to separate the Jewish communities from the Arabs, like in other parts of Judea and Samaria. Such barrier could have saved many lives, including those three kids who were kidnapped and murdered in 2014.

Dov, do you think Ari Fuld A'H could be Moshiach ben Yosef?

9/17/2018 10:11 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Rachel, we have had several Mashiach ben Yosefs, at least one for the last three generations. The first one was Yosef Trumpeldour zt"l, the hero of Tel Hai, murdered by Arab marauders. Col. John Henry Patterson tried to build a Jewish Army around him called the Zion Mule Corp during WW1. The next one was Avraham Yair Stern zt"l, murdered by the British between the end of WW2 and the founding of the State of Israel. The next one was Yonatan Netanyahu zt"l, the only recorded casualty in the Raid on Entebbe in 1976. The next one was Rav Meir Kahane zt"l also murdered by an Arab two years after Ehud Olmert (Armilus) banned him from running for the Knesset by authoring the Kach Law. Does anyone notice a pattern here? They have all ended up dead in a pool of their own blood, their lives ending in violent death. May HaShem avenge their blood.

My mistake. The British murdered Yair Stern in the middle of WW2. Hitler had started murdering all the Jews of Europe under Nazi control after the Wannsee Conference in January of 1942 while the British were busy enforcing their law from the Chamberlain era keeping all living European Jews out of Eretz Yisrael. What a world!

Dov, I apologize for questioning your "original research", but how do you know those casualties were "Mashiach Ben Yosef"? We have literally thousands of heroes who died for Israel in the last 70 years.

Gmar Chatima Tova!!!

I am with a great doubt, it is about politics in Brazil, moreover I perceived spiritual things and much similarity between the electoral political process in the United States (Donald Trump x Hillary Clinton and Jair messias Bolsonaro x Fernando Haddad) and in Brazil:

Jair Messias Bolsonaro is considered the Brazilian Donald Trump, Fernando Haddad is a communist and has proposals similar to those of Hillary Clinton (before there is the last election in the United States).

The number to vote for Jair Messias Bolsonaro is 17. Besides his name is Messiah, I learned on his blog (Mr. LEIB) that Essav will repent at the end of days, Essav and seek Yaakov. Donald Trump wanted to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Bolsonaro also has the proposal to move the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem (from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem). Those of political opponents in the electoral race against Bolsonaro (Ciro Gomes and Fernando Haddad), have the numbers of 12 (Ciro) and 13 (Fernando Haddad) respectively, the two are Communists (Cyrus and Haddad) are communists.

In addition, Bolsonaro is being attacked by the Brazilian press as well as Donald Trump was also attacked at all times by the American media. It is also a proposal by Jair Bolsonaro to liberalise the Brazilian economy, Trump is also doing this in the United States, he took a very broken country economically and socially (United States) and has helped to raise the country again, Bolsonaro intends to do the same (recently he was attacked with a stab here in Brazil).

Is there a spiritual connection in all this?

I thank you for your reply.

Only part of Esav repents at the End of Days. Donald Trump and what he represents repents while the rest of the human garbage in Europe and in California will burn like straw. Somehow with Yishmael, the bulk will repent, something that has not yet happened.

As for the rest, I will respond during Chol HaMoed Sukkot, bli neder. This year there is a Shabbat in between Yom Kippur and Sukkot giving us only 2 1/2 days to get ready for Chag (which occurs about 40% of the time). Last year Yom Kippur fell on Shabbat which gave us four full days to get ready for Chag. Either Yom Kippur or the first day of Sukkot fall out on Shabbat about 60% of the time. Yet there is a draw back to the first day of Rosh HaShanah and Sukkot falling out on Shabbat in that in such years there is no Shofar blowing or Lulav and Etrog waving on the first day of Rosh HaShanah and Sukkot. So we must maximize the work to be accomplished in 2 1/2 measly days for the privilege of not fasting on Shabbat and of waving the lulav and etrog on the First day of Sukkot as commanded in Leviticus 23.

Perhaps the military rapprochement between Israel and Saudi Arabia, over the subject of Iranian nuclear ambitions, is the beginning of the repentance of Ishmael?
The very early beginning, for Israelis are still banned from Dubai.
