Appearance on the Tamar Yonah Show

Updated: a second time on Feb. 18th with renewed link to the show

I appeared on the Tamar Yonah show on Arutz-7 on mms:// on Tuesday morning, February 7th, 2006 to speak about a variety of subjects relating to the "End of Days". I was on at 7 am local time here in Israel. Listen to the tape now that the show has aired.The link to Sefer Eliyahu that I referenced on the show is as follows:
It is a full English translation of the medrash. It includes the distinct dates for the political earthquake which founded the Kadima party on the 20th of Marcheshvan, 5766. It also includes the date for the beginning of Operation Moses and Operation Joshua which brought over 8000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel starting on the 26th of Marcheshvan, 5745 (1984). Operation Joshua followed on the heels of Operation Moses after about 1000 Ehiopian Jews had languished in the Sudanese desert for one month with little food or water. Four thousand had perished in the trek from Gondar Province in Ethiopia, and another 200 perished while waiting for rescue in the Sudanese desert which took the remaining 800 out in Operation Joshua. The earlier Exodus of seventeen thousand Jews from the same place in Ethiopia along the River Sambatyon (Blue Nile tributary) on the 25th of Tishrei is still a mystery. I or someone else for that matter, can do some more research to figure out when this event historically occurred. This could be a reference to a nearby community such as the one in Yemen. Or it may refer to an Exodus of Jews that has not yet ocurred, for although Operation Moses is numbered third, the medrash indicates that the numbering scheme is based on the date of arrival in the countries of their exile. As the medrash says, "The first group of exiles will not leave Babylon until the second group arrives there...."

Sefer Eliahu also says Kaf Adar, Moshiach will come. If this is the year, March 20 (monday) is the day which is 8 days before elections.

The only problem with assigning this year, 5766, to the fulfillment of that medrash is that the Sefer says the same thing in two different ways under two different sets of circumstances for the 20th of Shvat and the 20th of Elul. A medrash like this can best be understood only in hindsight. We can only pray fervently that one of these three dates occurs this year. Boy do we need it.

Was very nice to hear you on the radio show.
You should record a weekly Torah class and put it on your website.

I heard on the radio the other day that a group from Rockville, Maryland was sending sefers and other educational items to African Jews. I wish I remembered where they were in Africa.

These Jews were forced to convert hundreds of years ago but were still precticing Judaism.

Maybe these Jews could be the ones that will make their exodus and enter our Holy Land in the future?

Can anyone enlighten me what/who is the Bartieh d'Yaakov (I'm reading that as the daughter of Jacob) mentioned in Zohar 119a? I'm sort of striking out on my own research on the subject. Perhaps I'm misreading the term or missing something else obvious. Either way I'd like some input. Thanks!

Judaism is NOT racism!
Shalom Dov: Thanks for the material. I have been closely following the earthquakes, and I don't think that we are going to need to rely on mere political ones! I could go back and try to match the dates up with events, but I am pretty certain that we are looking for an earthquake which cannot be ignored!
Re: Sharon - NOT Jewish - per You.
Since the "Ariel Sharon" thread seems to be fading into the background (amazing technique?!), yet many gentiles are at our heels, seeking status as up and coming new "Israelites", new "Hebrews" etc., etc., it is important that we get some closure on his status, and the ramifications.
In LeDavid you posted that Sharon was not Jewish, and stated that the Tefillin status is resolved by the fact that Sharon's sons are. It is an interesting theory.
It seems that as we have not found any record that Sharon was Jewish; and there is a growing record that he is/was not, we are not able to assume he is a Jew and must assume that he is a gentile. We must all agree, that, as Sharon's mother was not a born Jew; and did not convert; that he also was not.
Some have argued she converted, but again, no record has been produced, and for sure nothing on home observance of Judaism. Thus, had she gone through some actions towards convertion, yet failed to keep the laws afterwards, it would be invalid, and Sharon would be a non-Jew still.
My question to you is this: How should we deal with people who call positions such as "yours", which is actually simple, straight forward, Normative Orthodox Judaism - "racist"?
This wacky accusation is being made often, and I am hoping that those who respect you will agree to stop making this wild accusation. Thanks Elisheva

To the Good People at your Website,

Hello from the Great Southern Land of Australia.

We are living in the prophesied times described by Isaiah, Ezekial, Jeremiah and others. Creation is like a vast mosaic, made up of many, many pieces.

Throughout history, some of these pieces come down and are revealed for all to see. Great innovations, inventions, ideas and the like are some of these pieces. G-d gives us these gifts, and he tests us to see what we do with them. If we misuse his gifts, he gets very angry. We collectively reap what we individually sow.

The way through the coming days, weeks and months is with prayer, vigilance and right action.

We are living in truly momentous times.

I heard it, Dov. You did a great job. Yasher koach! And thanks for sharing your insights with us. I hang on every word.

I daresay, since redemption dawns on the Holy Land first, those in chu"l, being in the darkness that is Egypt, are having a tough time making out what's really going on.

Reasons to believe these are indeed the End of Days:

1. Israel is regathered, almost a majority in EY.

2. After further and further gains, the process appears to be reversing itself; however, this is to fool the SA and his minions just before they fall for good.

3. Rabbi Winston says the actions at Amona are proof that at the soul level the klippot know their days are numbered and they are giving it everything they have trying to hang on. (They are so going down!)

4. In the natural realm, if redemption doesn't come, Israel will be destroyed and that's not gonna happen.

5. Both the xians and muslims are predicting the End of Days and the president of Iran plans to bring on Armageddon to jump start it.

The whole world that has any connection to spirituality at all, knows in the depths of their souls that THIS IS IT. (Whether it's this year or next, the energy is there.)

6. All the rabbis in EY who count are in agreement on this.]

Rabbi Yess..... your comment sounds exactly like the comments of my friends. My friends are Lubavitchers... who spent years and years yelling for Moshiach, but now they have lapsed into a nothing-ness..... they cannot see the woods for the trees.
It's time for Lubavitchers to start yelling for Moshiach again.... and to wake up and realise that we are living in amazing times.
PS (I am not talking about ALL Lubavitchers... just quite a lot that I know, who have taken on the attitude that "well, if the Rebbe isn't Moshiach, then no-one else can be".

Shalom to everyone.
Moshiach Now.
Whoever he is.

You have said many mean things about me on your blog. There were several posts where you accused be of being this Armelus. And now, you have replaced me as Armelus, with this newcomer Olmert.

I have not heard any words of apology.

As you know, I am not that religious, but even I know what Lashon Hara is.

Moshe Yess, as long as there is still free-will in the world, there will always be room for doubt as you so ably demonstrate. It is not possible to do what you ask, to prove these things at this point. If it were, then free-will would no longer exist and you would lose the opportunity to gain merit for your faith. See Rabbi Lazer Brody's comment on this subject:

Is there someone watching the store?
Some of the above comments are questionable and perhaps should not be here.

One should not make demands and ultimatums from the author of this blog. He is sharing his views freely. Agree or disagree, but to issue demands I don't think is proper. Sounds like some people are coming apart from the seams.

We should not forget Who's running the show. The Abishter is in charge and things will happen as He desires, no matter how impatient we may be. Hang onto your emunah and bitachon!

Rambam also said regarding Midrashim that they are not Halacha, so it is up to each one of us to beleive in Midrashim or not.

Yes, Nechama, I am watching the store. It is just that I can only do a clean up job once a day at the most. There have been a flood of posts, Baruch HaShem, on this site since the radio interview. I have been busy this week with other projects. Baruch HaShem, keep posting.

I request from Mr. Bowman not to use my blogspot to proselytize about Yesu (Jesus) and to quote the New Testament. I left one of your comments standing from the previous post "The Man Who Met Mashiach", because there you did not quote the New Testament. Nor did you tell us that Yesu was the man about whom the prophets were writing. Obviously, most of what you quoted, dealt with the coming of Mashiach or the Man who could have been Mashiach, Chizkiyahu, King of Yehudah. In no way do any of these prophets presuppose to be speaking about your man from Nazareth. I respect that you have those beliefs. Find a forum other than this one to express them. You are welcome to comment on this forum about the times in which we are living, and how it is ripe for the commencement of the Messianic Era. I respectfully request that everyone keep their opinions about who G-d's chosen annointed is until he reaches a status of Chezkat Mashiach. This is the status where we can presuppose that someone may be Mashiach, but he has not yet completed his job.

Secondly, to Shimon Peres, I never said that you were Armelus. The Targum Yonatan seemed to indicate that you were Armolgus, a close spiritual relative to Armelus, coming from the camp of the Leftists. Armelus, Olmert or more likely Sharon, is from the camp of the Erev Rav right-wingers who joined up with the Erev Rav leftists to form the Kadima Party. Rabbi Israel Solomon in his book about the Erev Rav describes in detail the two spiritual poles represented by the two sons of Bilaam and their spiritual progeny Armelus and Armolgus. He also has a 40 minute discussion on the website about the evacuation from Gush Katif which fully explains these two Erev Rav poles as explained by the Targum Yonatan. I believe that the medrash on Shemot (Exodus) on the Sin of the Golden Calf calls them Ionus and Lambros. Interestingly enough, one of them got 2/3 of the gold while the other got 1/3 of the gold for the purpose of performing their sorcery. It is hard to guess which one is which. I suspect that Sharon and Peres were the gilgulim of the sons of Bilaam. Now that one of them is brain dead, Olmert has arisen as the gilgul of Bila'am himself. This is just a suspicion at this time. Time will show if my hunch is correct.

I will answer Luis David, Reb Moshe Yess, and a few of the other anonymous commenters' questions, bli neder, before I retire on Motzei Shabbat (Sat. night Israel time). I may yet get to my responses tonight. Please be patient, and keep posting!

Question: How many Lubavitchers lost faith when Moshiach failed to arrive after Gimel Tamuz?
Answer: none that I know of.
In fact the Lubavitch movement continues to thrive, albeit with some arguments along the way.

I hope that we never stop speculating on Moshiach's imminent arrival.

(From the book Shamati by Kabbalist Y. Ashlag)

Our sages said this about the verse, “Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! Wherefore would ye have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light” (Amos 5): “A parable about a rooster and a bat that were awaiting the light. The rooster said to the bat: ‘I await the light for the light is mine; but you, what need have you for light?’” (Sanhedrin 98). The interpretation is that since the bat has no eyes to see, what does it gain from the sunlight? On the contrary, for one who has no eyes, the sunlight only darkens more.

Armilus will kill Moshiach ben Yosef.

Kahanists bring sources that Moshiach ben Yosef can be a Cohen.

Interestingly if Olmert is this Armilus fellow, Olmert was the evil lawyer-MK who was appointed by the Israeli establishment to find legal ways to prevent Kahane (who was a Cohen) from getting 8-12 seats in the 1988 elections. He succeeded ie Kahane was thwarted in his mission - Moshiach ben Yosef was "killed" by Olmert-Armilus!

To the person who wrote that Mashiach ben Yosef can be a Kohen, and that Kahane was MBY, I believe now that you are correct. It all makes sense now. Armilus did kill Mashiach ben Yosef after all. He did it over 18 years ago by banning him from the Knesset. He destroyed the purpose of his life.

Yes, MBY can be a Kohen. The gene of malkhut for the children of Rachel is through the X chromosome not the Y chromosome. Witness, the daughters of Tzelafkhad from the children of Menashe. We learn the laws of inheritance for women from them. Witness Dariyavush son of Esther who permitted the completion of the 2nd Temple. I believe Yeshayahu the prophet calls Dariyavush calls him Mashiach or annointed. Yet, his father was Achashverosh (Xerxes), a non-Jew. Yet, because his mother was from the tribe of Binyamin, he received the chromosome to be Mashiach from his mother. Finally, we need to understand that MBY will be a decendent of Yehoshua bin Nun. Of course Yehoshua only was priveleged to have daughters. Obviously, the chromosome of Kingship through Yehoshua was through the X chromosome. On this issue the Kahanists are correct. Apparently, Armilus did "kill" MBY of the previous generation. The medrash about Armilus and MBY is apparently historically correct.

I have something very interesting for the Israelis to comment on. in the Israel national news today i read that The constitution is being debated, I have and interesting thought abou this. Here it is short and sweet.


Does no one find this interesting that Olmert wants to have a 7 year budget, the EU also has a 7 yr budget and the book of Daniel says that the future Israeli / Arab peace treaty will be 7 years. Is no one connecting the dots. and about this new constituition, I think they might call it a covenant somehow, in Daniel 9:27 also the dictator signs the covenant of peace for 7 yrs, I thought this would be the Jerusalem covenant, but now Israel might change their constitution to a covenant to fulfill the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 I think.

A question regarding claims made in the comments here. I would be grateful if anyone could provide links to show/illustrate that indeed
1. Olmert was instrumental in banning Meir Kahane H"YD.
2. Kahanists claim that Meir Kahane was MBY.

Thanks in advance.

So many posts and reactions.
That was a sensitive material.
Messiah is not coming but he went back, he left waiting to long for people to wake up.
I dont know if they are still sleeping yet, but the truth is that the one to come and wait for is not Moshiach but those who sleep, people are not here yet...
Will they be in Nissan? Maybe.Depends on them.People are not come to the reality yet,that's all.Moshiach waited enough...
