The Day the Music Died: Bye Bye Miss American Pie

According to the Talmud in Chulin 92, there are three mitzvot that the nations of the world accepted on themselves basically in order not to really anger G-d to the point where they will lose the merit of previous generations.  They vowed to never grant marriage contracts to homosexuals, to never weigh out and sell human flesh in the marketplace, and to show respect for the Torah.  America just lost that merit of previous generations today.  It stands before HaQodesh Baruch Hu as a corpse.  The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which defined marriage as between one man and one wife was overturned in a 5 to 4 decision.  And the really really sad part is that 3 of the 5 Justices on the High Ct. in the US that voted to overturn that law of the US Congress (as being unconstitutional) are...Jews.  Sorry, America, I am ashamed of these folks today.  To Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Elana Kagan, I have to ask why?  Why would you consider making your host country a corpse?  Do you really think that the Creator of the Universe is not taking notice?  Are you that cavalier to endanger the lives of American Jews when the country has its Divine bracha completely removed and when Americans start looking around for a scapegoat?  Do you think that righteous G-d fearing gentiles are not in tears over watching the Jewish community in the United States destroy what was their blessed country from within??  Do you think for one minute that they will ignore that 3 out of the 5 Justices that signed America's death warrant are people with Jewish mothers?  Oy mah haya lanu!!

This short post will be updated later, bli neder.

One actual verse and the chorus from Don McClean's Bye Bye Miss American Pie:

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in hell
Could break that satan's spell.
And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite,
I saw satan laughing with delight
The day the music died

He was singing,
"bye-bye, miss american pie."
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
And singin', "this'll be the day that I die.
"this'll be the day that I die."

Dear G-d America, what have you done to yourself?

The gold and silver that we received in Mitzraim when we left was for 86 years of forced servitude (slavery) for which we had not been compensated during those 86 years. You are not in America as a slave. America does NOT owe you any gold or silver. Perhaps the Cossacks owe it to you and me for the pain and suffering of our ancestors, but America has not been a source of pain and suffering and slavery against Jews. So don't expect any gold or silver from America that you have not purchased with your hard earned money.

Biden: Jewish leaders helped gay marriage succeed

Jewish leaders in the media are in large part responsible for American acceptance of gay marriage, Vice President Biden said Tuesday night.

“I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else,” he said at a Democratic National Committee reception for Jewish American Heritage Month. He cited social media and the sitcom “Will and Grace,” giving Jews a large part of the credit for both.

“I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry,” he said. “The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good. ”

The vice president also praised Jewish contributions to science, immigration reform, the civil-rights movement, the arts, the law and to feminism.

You got it! Jewish Hollywood!! Add in the Jewish bankers and the Jewish vote that put Obama back in for another four years and you've got a recipe for antisemitism like nobody has ever seen in America.

Important to remember that those in high places and thought of as Jews are the Erev Rav. Throughout our history all those who started the 'movements' were either the extreme wealthy or in power in governments, etc., bringing all the disasters not only on the Jews but on everyone else also. Just like the Erev Rav were responsible for the sin of the golden calf, so too, are those who have Jewish names but are no different. They are either somehow descendants of or gilgulim (reincarnations of the souls) of the Erev Rav. The others, most of the time who just follow, are misguided Jews under the influence of the morals of today. So what the VP said is really what the world thinks and why not?

Russia Upgrading, Strengthening Military

Moscow is strengthening its military as a way to underscore its influence over the region it intends to encompass in its customs-free Eurasian Union, and analysts say the move is aimed primarily at countries such as the United States which have their own interests in the region...

These upgrades include reform of Russia’s conventional military and a modernization of its strategic nuclear capabilities to enable it to overwhelm a proposed U.S. missile defense system located in Europe as a signal to the U.S. not to interfere in what Russia regards as its sphere of influence.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown a firm determination to enact his concept of the Eurasian Union, on which he campaigned heavily in his runup for election recently. He apparently isn’t tolerating any criticism, especially from the United States, as seen in the recent Russian reaction to comments from U.S. Secretary Hillary Clinton.

As a show of determination, analysts say, Russia intends to increase its national defense and national security spending by more than 30 percent of its annual budget.

The intent is to show a “resolute” determination that it will not allow Western interference in the region which encompasses its Eurasian Union concept.
Putin also has other overarching strategic considerations.

Putin is determined to have his Eurasian Union become “one of the global poles of power,” connecting Europe and the Asia-Pacific region – something which even Beijing may consider a potential encroachment in its traditional sphere of influence in East Asia.

As of now, however, a show of increased Russian military power might well become increasingly important to Moscow. Given the accelerated military buildup under way, some analysts suggest it is a sign that Putin is prepared to defend his policy with force if necessary.

And remember today was the actual 17th of Tamuz because of the molad being on the 1st of Tamuz. I have spoken about this on multiple occasion on this blog including in the comments section of the previous post. Hillel HaSheini specifically set up 5773 for all the days to come one day early so that Yom Kippur would NOT fall out on Motzei Shabbat in 5774. So there were only 29 days in Kislev 5773. and the problem is re-corrected with 30 days in Cheshvan 5774. So this was an intentional move by Hillel HaSheini. Yet, this time the Erev Rav in the US has successfully destroyed their host country from within. Oy mah haya lanu. The 30% who did not vote for Obama should leave America before Rosh Chodesh Av if they can. Hopefully your extenuating circumstances allow. Otherwise check out a Jewish survivalist community in the US for what will soon come with kosher non-perishable food storage in a country location with weapons to protect it.

The Creator of the world is shaking the world every second, in all respects and in all ways: earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, fires, terrible winds and hurricanes, with hatred and anti-Semitism against the Jews of the world, with the dismantling and destruction of the world economy step by step, level by level. Each day the Master of the world is raising the bar. In holy Eretz Yisrael, the economy will be strongest of all economies in the world with a livelihood for all! Whether they believe or don’t believe. The believer will win out, the non-believer will fall.

The Master of the world is angry at and hurt by the Jews who live outside of Eretz Yisrael, who prefer the impurity and materialism and not the holy Land and the Holy One. How pitiful! All will read in the newspapers and see in the media, how the goyim will throw Jews out of their homes and cars. The entire world is a stage and everyone is an actor. The entire performance is a forgery. Only the Jews in holy Eretz Yisrael, they are real people – real Jews!

Jews who live outside of Eretz Yisrael, the Holy One is speaking to you eye to eye, saying that the Master of the world will not halt the destructive forces of nature and the crumbling of the world economy, except for that which is in the holy Eretz Yisrael. The Holy One will continue to dismantle the European economy, with earthquakes and harsh floods and anti-Semitism. The same for the United States and areas around it – there will be hatred against the Jews and the downfall of their economy. The Creator knows how to build worlds and how to destroy worlds, without even harming one Jew who lives in holy Eretz Yisrael!

But We have Emuna and know G-d is in charge and know He runs this world. We are able to see Hashem every day in what is happening around us. The only thing I can think is that this is where Hashem wants us. Unfortunately we live in California. We're not bad people. My husband goes to minyan everyday.We keep kosher and are Shomer Shabbos. We don't have a TV. We study a lot of Torah and give tzedaka. I'm on Chevra Kadisha. It's not right decent Jews still in galus are referred to in such negative terms.

I am not a prophet, but I can see that HaShem is setting into place a modern day "underground railroad" for when it is needed. There are more then a few G-D fearing Jews who left the cities years ago. We have learned to grow pure healthy food, and raise kosher animals, and have military experience. We have doctors and even pilots among us, The critical factor will be not hesitating to get out of the cities before they are shut down. HaShem will lead, just pay attention!

Rav Yehudah Ze'ev Leibowitz zt"l told Rav Shalom Arush Shlita before he died that there will be pogroms in the United States. Now, since Obama is the last "King of Edom" and since he ostensibly only has 3 1/2 maximum years left to his Presidency (according to the US Constitution), either he will do away with the Constitution and declare martial law, or there will be pogroms before that 3 1/2 year period ends. That is the maximum extent of the future of Jewish life in American cities. It is best to make Aliyah now, but if you can't, find a place in the Smokies, the Ozarks, or the Upper Peninsula to hunker down with other Jews and righteous gentiles. good night all.

yes, but Geulah b'Rachamim means hopping on the wings of an eagle for free on your Aliyah flight. From New York you are here in less than 11 hours, and your ticket along with 3 suitcases are paid for thanks to the Israeli govt. You then get Sal klitah (fistful of cash) for 7 months in order to go to Ulpan and get settled along with 3 duty free shipments of your household goods and 220 Volt appliances if you care to bring a Lift. Yes, the cab ride to one of the airports from which El Al flies is not free. You will have to pay for the cab ride. The Eagles do not land on Ocean Avenue in Flatbush. You need to take a cab to Kennedy Airport to mount up on one of those eagle's wings. If the Vilna Gaon had such a deal from Vilna, on which flight out would he be on from Lithuania?

Finally the purpose of getting the Torah was to bring it to Eretz Yisrael. The entire focus of the Torah is to go into galut, to get the Torah, and to make one's way back to Eretz Yisrael. The Ba'al Teshuva's journey is not complete until he at least attempts to get back here if his extenuating circumstances allow for it. Then we will hopefully provide a dwelling place for G-d here on Yerushalayim not Flatbush.

My family and I completed the relinquishment of our America citizenship to be only Jews and Israelis with no ties to the stinking ruin that was America the great. This was a moral and religious statement of our love for Hashem, Israel, and the principles of Torah we hope to see soon be the law of this land. The title of my email to friends and family on the day we got our loss of citizenship papers was "Bye Bye Miss American Pie"

Before I left America, I was an inside witness to a great many things from a strategic point and a political vantage. I knew decades before it became popular to know, that our former country was being destroyed from within. However I was bound by a 10 year travel ban, and a 40 year gag law as part of my Top Secret Clearance and code word accesses. I could not comment on my knowledge publicly.

The rights of the constitution and any moral basis for government in America has been systematically stripped away layer by layer. For instance I was bound by posse comatitus from pursuing leads on intelligence activity within the US. There is no such restriction any longer. Witness Mr. Snowden. Over 20 years ago I observed military helicopters painted flat black with men in military fatigues in harnesses leaning out of the doors spying on my property in Texas, even dropping below tree level and then flying at tree top level along the fence line directly behind my home. I was on the back patio next to the pool and I was so close to the thing that I could very clearly see the men inside well enough to identify them if I had known them.

I called my county sheriff and read him the riot act. He was dumbfounded, he had no defense except to say that the military had offered to lend personnel and equipment to spy on private property for the sake of looking for marijuana patches. Being also a trained criminal investigator and former law enforcement officer. I pursued him about such little details as probable cause, search warrants, and posse comatitus. He had no defense except to say it was happening with the help of the federal government. So much for it being legal.

You people in America have been asleep and the cossacks have taken over. The interment camps have been funded and built. The erev Rav are working hand in hand with the far left to throw the country into ruin and their names are plastered all over the news, These so called Jews are earning you a reputation that you will not be able to deny when order collapses. The Aryan Brotherhood, the Klan and dozens of other groups fully intend to gut your children before your eyes. I was in combat in Viet Nam and I have seen such things, believe me it can happen in America, your parents and grandparents could not believe it would happen in Germany. Wake up.

I built a secure place out in the wood of Texas, I had guns, supplies, alternate power and water, special forces training and military combat experience. But I also knew, from combat experience that if you are "hoarding" weapons and supplies, the roaming gangs will find you. You may beat them off a time or two but they will then know that there is something of great value that you are protecting and they will come back with more and more friends and lay siege to your place. Smith and Wesson is great insurance for the short run, but only Hashem has provided a home for you in Eretz Israel that he looks over. His protection is far greater than a place in the woods and lots of big guns. Face it, the average American Jew is challenged by putting air in his car tires let alone operating a gun with skill.

America is about to become the back lot for the next Mad Max movie for real, do you really want to be there?

Concerning 'Meir, what Hutzpa to say:"Only the Jews in holy Eretz Yisrael, they are real people – real Jews!"'

Correct Dov! I was indeed quoting Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi and it also says so in my comment.

6/27/2013 3:54 AM  
Anonymous Meir M. said...

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi also says:

The King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He, decided that all Jews in the world should make aliyah. HKBH will not pass over a single Jew- every Jew who is a Jew- Hashem will bring that person to the Land!

Hashem signaled this desire to Jews in chutz la’aretz by way of their intellect, but now, He is using another level, the step of strength (in Hebrew, it was the “moach”, but it’s now the “koach”).  As a brief introduction to this current step, Hashem is shaking the world, waking people up and uprooting Jews from their sure footing, in lands that are impure and focused on materialism. HKBH is focused specifically on the United States, as well as other places with large Jewish populations, in order that millions of Jews will make aliyah and populate the Negev and the Galil.

The earthquake in the United States, and the hurricanes and strong winds, these are just the beginnings of widening methods to get the very last Jew into Eretz Yisrael!

Do not battle with the Ribono shel Olam! Don’t minimize this in your head, as the situation will not change or fade away! Don’t be dismissive of this! Hashem will not yield. He decided, and He will carry his decision through to the very end!

The incidents taking place in our Holy Land, these are trials whose purpose is to awaken the people in the Land from their slumber and indifference, and to see if Jews dispersed abroad love Hashem and believe in Him enough to come to Eretz Yisrael despite these incidents. This is similar to when the Medina was established, when Jews fought among the nations in order to establish the Medina, so it is today- the olim will become partners in a similar enterprise. Any Jew who will remain stubborn and not come to the Land, will have Hashem to contend with, let them be forewarned and not complain they didn’t know.

HKBH loves each and every Jew in the world, and has compassion for them. HKBH desires each Jew to come to live in Israel, and merit geulah b’rachamim (a compassionate redemption), and He wishes to reveal the Mashiach now! Mashiach ben David is found in the Holy Land now, a human being who is alive and will remain ever so!

Perry Confident on Peace Negotiations

6/27/2013 9:07 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Perry is a putz and the Minister of Science. He knows nothing about national security. The facts on the ground are that Netanyahu cannot pull another Sharon because between 23 to 26 of his own Likud/ Beiteinu MKs would bolt his coalition if he tried a Sharon like stunt. Because of the Likud Primary coming after King Shaul's Gaza Surrender on the 8th day of the Gaza War (on the 8th of Kislev), 18 out of 19 MKs who were chosen were on the Feiglin list who would destroy Likud from within if Bibi followed his masters in the CFR to surrender up Eretz Yisrael. And about half of the Yisrael Beiteinu Ministers are also against national suicide.

When Sharon pulled his unilateral stunt he had only 13 rebels against him out of 40 seats. So Sharon still had 27 Likud supporters to support the Disengagement. Bibi would count himself lucky to be left with 8 seats in Likud/ Beiteinu, and with only 8 seats, either Lapid or Shelly Yucky would demand power sharing.

If just a few Jews would simply recite the Tikun HaKlali every day and / or Perek Shira and thank Hashem (hey, it's almost Tisha b'Av...don't make the same mistake again now) for everything they'd be worthy of major, phenomenal, supernatural nissim and merit great salvations from the most difficult problems in their life that they ever dreamed of obtaining!! Before you comment on this suggestion first try this formula and ONLY then talk. Last year it saved me and my city from Sandy by a major miracle!! and since I've started doing this I've seen Hashem's nissim in everything and that, wherever I am or go. You could be the one who'll save your entire city or will activate Moshiach. Finish your tikun before Moshiach's revelation. all the rest are just ways to escape from your tikun you'll regret once Moshiach will be here you didn't finish doing. Hashem is wherever you let Him in so where are you running to ??

Likud MK Hotovely: New plan needed - Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, Aliyah, gradual granting of political rights to Arabs"

I realize th PA will not go for it, but circumventing the PA and going straight to the Arabs themselves might work ... If the inc$ntive$ are right?

I think That was the plan also for the Haredim before Lapid forced his way into the issue.

"After the fall of Constantinople to the Turks, the idea of Moscow as the successor to the Orthodox empire gained ground in Russian clerical circles. Let me quote the famous passage from a letter of Filofei of Pskov to Ivan the Great:

'The church of the first Rome fell because of the godless heresy of Apollinaris. The gates of the second Rome at Constantinople were smashed by the Ishmaelites. Today the holy apostolic church of the third Rome in thy Empire shines in the glory of Christian faith throughout the world. Know you, O pious Tsar, that all empires of the orthodox Christians have converged into thine own. You are the sole autocrat of the universe, the only tsar of all Christians.... According to the prophetic books all Christian empires have an end and will converge into one empire, that of our gossudar, that is, into the Empire of Russia. Two Romes have fallen, but the third will last, and there will not be a fourth one.'

It took about a century to institutionalize the idea. Ivan IV was the first Rurikide to have himself crowned, in 1547, as czar of the Orthodox; and in 1589 the patriarch of Constantinople was compelled to institute the first autocephalous patriarch of Moscow, now with the official recognition of Moscow as the Third Rome.

The dates of rise and institutionalization of the idea are of importance. The reign of Ivan the Great coincides with the consolidation of the Western national states (England, France, and Spain), and the reigns of Ivan IV and of Theodore I coincide with the Western Reformation. Precisely at the time when the Western imperial articulation ultimately disintegrated, when Western society rearticulated itself into the nations and the plurality of churches, Russia entered on her career as the heir of Rome. From her very beginnings Russia was not a nation in the Western sense but a civilizational area, dominated ethnically by the Great Russians and formed into a political society by the symbolism of Roman continuation' (Voegelin 115).

Also as the West becomes reprobate below the 49th level of impurity because of free love, Yishmael loses all of its collective merit because of free hate. So both reach the makah v'patish (final hammer blow that fully condemns them) on two different paths. The West (Edom) is granting ketubot to homosexuals, and Islam is selling human flesh in the marketplace.

One of the results of a nation going dark because of free love (by sanctifying the profane: homosexual marriage) is that those who have fallen below this 49th level seem to become immune to the wicked who eat the hearts of their victims. So it makes it easier for a nation that sanctifies homosexual marriage to support the free haters who eat the hearts of their victims. All perspective on human decency gets mixed up in the pit of Hell.

If one thinks about it, what does homosexual sex accomplish? It meets the needs of the one who "penetrates". It is all self-serving. There is no giving on the other end. No children to raise as a consequence. No union of opposites (as with man and woman). We really are opposites who help each other. Eizer kenegdo we call each other in Hebrew. The pleasure is in the giving. With male homosexuality, the act of love is totally self-serving. One loses all perspective on the significant other. This leads to forming alliances with monsters who eat the hearts of their victims since in both cases, the perpetrator is thinking about himself alone. It is a wonder that Obama seems to unite the two as the world's leading narcissist.

This is not to say that there are not male homosexual couples who truly love each other, but they are in the minority. Right now Syria is the "playground" where the nations who are steeped below the 49th level of free love are in alliance with the nations below the 49th level because of free hate. And when they finally unite, they will war against G-d in the Valley of Yehoshefat. G Night.

Hopefully those in America who picked up on the message of Sandy have already had their Aliyah applications processed before this strike started. Yet, the present set of applications that are in limbo must be more that frustrating.

Part of the problem here is that everyone is guilty of Normalcy bias. American Jews are not clamoring to make Aliyah in greater numbers than they have for the last ten years since Nefesh b'Nefesh started, and the Israeli Govt. does not see the collapse of America on the horizon. This is why Netanyahu seems to think that he needs to behave like a poodle before American pressure. He does not see imminent collapse coming to America because he was groomed by the CFR to think that Edom will remain in firm control forever. So no one is taking what is happening now as a serious threat to the end of Western Civilization. So they have the attitude that all those who want to make Aliyah now can wait patiently for a few months until the strike is over.

Palestinian textbooks erase Israel, give no hope for peace
Friday, June 28, 2013 | Ryan Jones

A hearing at the Knesset this week revealed once again that Palestinian school textbooks deny the legitimacy of Israel, erase Jewish history in the region, and teach that true peace is not possible until the Jewish state disappears.

Presenting his findings to the gathered lawmakers and foreign diplomats, Dr. Arnon Groiss, a recognized expert on tolerance in education, charged that "Israel is delegitimized, and demonized in these texts and no peaceful solution to Arab-Israel conflict is ever discussed."

The textbooks in question are used currently in Palestinian schools funded and operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). Financing for the schools and textbooks comes from the US, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Australia and other nations.

One of the chief components of the original "Oslo" peace accords was that both sides would educate their respective populations for peaceful coexistence on the basis that both had a right to sovereignty in at least part of the land.

The Palestinian side has not only failed to meet this obligation, but has been demonstrably going in the opposite direction, educating future generations to perpetuate the conflict with Israel.

Dan G, Dovid and Yonatan had a relationship which is plainly stated as love. Just because some men, some falsely informed or without knowing what they do is wrong engage in forbidden relations mistaking that as a way for men to show strong love.
Homosexuals have a taiva similar to the desire for avoda zora in the days past. It is mostly western goyishe society equating physical relations and release as a nearly exclusive way to give and receive affection. There is also a selfish hedonistic thing once repressed but now held up as the height of pleasure, especially to men, that treats physical relations as an almost drug like experience bereft of any affection.
I have counseled Jewish men with this taiva and it is a very difficult to deal with problem for them. They have no desire or even aversion to females and even the tzadikim among them can break under the taiva at times. As yiddin our job is to resist with all our might and remember that if unable to quit in the act the moment the act is complete tshuva is possible.
If the Torah had to specify to love the ger, in todays world we should also be reminded to love the person with homosexual taivas, they need all of the support they can get.

Just before Shabbat bulletin from Rav Ya'akov Bar Nachman:


Israel is planning a call up of reserve soldiers, the reasons given in the article below are rather shallow and hide the truth.
Some few know what is coming in the days ahead, some others don't . . . . . Many "prefer" not to accept things as they are, so dream up what ever they want to justify their preferences and desires = self delusional.

The current state of muslim preparedness is that they have about 65,000 multiple rockets with launchers, plus rockets that don't work with launchers. Each launcher takes about 40 minutes to setup to fire after its previous firing of several rockets each. Thus Israel could be subject to over 100,000 incoming muslim rockets per hour, up to their total inventory of about 200,000. The Israel military has been saying that they can not deal with more than 50,000 incoming rockets. What does that mean for the population of Israel, until Israel responds appropriately? And rest assured that Israel can respond sufficient to stop the muslims, even if it comes late, but not too late in the unfolding of things. A preemptive knock out strike takes a lot more of a leader than exists in Bibi, Moshe Ya'alom maybe, but . . . . .

The Likud internal elections are just a few days away, already Bibi is loosing badly in committees to Danny Dannon who is not in favor of bowing down to muslims, even one in the White House. So if the muslims wait a week or more after the Likud internal elections to digest things, we should not be surprised, yet they persist in preparing for an attack. A call up of Israeli reserves has never impressed them much in the past as they revel in their deaths, not in life . . . . . . As some know, Israel has been at one level of readiness below a full call up of reserve soldiers since this past Sunday, even if done very quietly. For Israel to take this final step of mobilizing reserves is a significant drain on the economy, so it is not done until "rather late in the unfolding of things" . . . . . .

OK, Netanyahu just had a collar iron placed around his neck by the Likud Central Committee. Hard liner Danny Danon is now the Chairman of the Likud Central Committee and Ze'ev Elkin is the head of the party's Ideology Committee, that is the Likud's party platform. Both these victories are a blow to Bibi's unilateral decision making with regards to the Pieces Process. And several other things which remove Bibi's crown will soon be coming down the pike. This is all great news. The tsunami event of Michael Fuah winning the Chairmanship did NOT occur though.

Katz is not a chump for Netanyahu, but he has been supportive of the merger between Likud and Yisrael Bieteinu, but because of the other results from yesterday, that will likely not happen. Katz biggest problem was that he has held the office of Mazkir (Sectretary) of the party for ten years, and he has been corrupted by this power.

Michael Fuah was Feiglin's choice to be the Chairman of the Likud. Feiglin correctly surmises that the Chair of Likud has to be someone independent of having the political power of an MK since Bibi has the right to "fire" someone who gets in his way from his portfolio in the coalition. But both Fuah and Danon are equally strong on issues such as the Land of Israel issues. Yet, because Fuah would have been totally independent of the fray, he would be more likely to check Netanyahu on every stupid move that Bibi would have been likely to make. That was Feiglin's main point in this campaign.

In walks Emanuel Weiser from stage right. Apparently the media is ignoring the earthquake of how a very right wing religious Zionist has now become the internal Likud judge because his opponent providentially made a statement a few weeks ago about how women enjoy being raped. That judge was Netanyahu's choice to not challenge him within Likud. Well guess what. Weiser won the election for internal Likud judge by Divine Providence, Baruch HaShem. So all of Netanyahu's moves will be checked by Weiser, the new judge, to see if Netanyahu's move conform to the Likud Party platform. And within Likud, Netanyahu can now be taken to court to challenge him when he abandons that platform. Baruch HaShem for all of his Mercies.

I just checked a source for inside information in the Likud, and I was told that Michael Kleiner is the new judge on the Law Committee of Likud and NOT Emanuel Weiser. Kleiner is also a hardliner against the 2 State solution, but he is secular. Kleiner quit Likud in 1998 when Bibi proposed the withdrawal from Chevron in the Wye Accords. So his integrity is above reproach.

It appears that there were other results in these Likud elections that the media is not focusing on.

I just validated from Rav Mordechai Rabinovitch that Michael Kleiner is an excellent choice for Likud judge who would hold Bibi's feet to the fire with regards to keeping his policies in line with the Likud Charter and party platform. Rav Rabinovitch is one of Moshe Feiglin's spiritual advisers and happened to have composed the entire anthology for ArtScroll's Mishnayot on Seder Zera'im in English.

On your article, I cannot help but wonder what gives them the authority to believe that only their Minhag / Chumra / Hashkafa is correct to justify their actions and effectively give them the divine right to treat other Jews as if the latter were insincere Gerim?

Especially when the Fore-Fathers would likely resemble those Jews that remained in West Asia as well as recognise the latter's Minhag and non-western clothing compared to those exiled to Europe.

While it would be great if such trivial issues did not matter, I remember a while back on other site that argued Jews should abandoned their Minhag under the rationale that those customs (foods, etc) were foreign influenced.

Yet it was never stated what it should be replaced with nor stated how far back they were willing to go (e.g. even the ancient Egyptians and Greeks pickled their food for example) or whether that includes allowing Kitniyot and Soft Matzah during Passover for Jews of all ethnic backgrounds as well as begin to wear the sort of indigenous clothing that our Fore-Father's would have worn instead of the current universal western-influenced clothing that even religious Jews wear.


You've mentioned a while back that one of the many issues within the Ashkenazi Jewish world was that the main centres (both secular and religious) are outside of Israel compared with Mizrahi Jews, who now consider Israel to be their home.

Also, could it be argued that one of the traits of the Erev Ze'ir is an intolerance to the Minhag of religious Jews from other backgrounds?

If that is the case, then wouldn't that mean that both the Erev Rav and Erev Ze'ir were born from the problems within the Ashkenazi Jewish world?

I think that because of the intensity of suffering in the Ashkenazic world in Xtian Europe for 1700 years since Constantine, there are higher rates of mental illness from the virulently secular to the fervently religious throughout the entire range of the Ashkenazic world. By the time that Tach v'Tat had done its dirty work before 1650, in order for some Jews to survive, burying their nefesh behamit (animal soul) became a necessary evil in order survive for the next 300 years of history. Rav Berel Wein called it a Triumph of Survival. For more than 60 or 70% of European Jews this was an abject failure. Only the Litwak world could do this without going insane. So two generations later Chassidut was born to keep the patient surviving for those Jews who could not live their lives burying their collective pain. Yet, if one's maternal ancestors were raped in three successive generations by Cossacks, Russians, and Moldavians, burying PTSD became a requirement of childhood. From a very young age (like infancy) the child has to bury his/ her pain because mommy is barely making it herself. The pre-cognitive trauma of 1700 years of unparalleled suffering is immense. I am glad that most Sephardic Jews were spared most of this if not all of this. This is NOT an excuse for inexcusable behavior. Perpetual suffering is not an excuse for lack of common decency. It is just an explanation. Yes, the Erev Ze'ir takes advantage of Jews in their weakened state in order to keep them in the "posh" American exile, but it is not so posh anymore.

The cure will come with Eliyahu HaNavi who will return the hearts of the fathers unto their children and the hearts of children to the fathers. Until then find oneself a good Winnicott/ Fairbairn therapist because those two gentlemen believed that human being psyches exist with an eternal soul. Stay away from Freud and Klein because they did not believe in G-d. Also Likutei Moharan can be some needed medicine for the pained soul...and keep up the faith. We are very near the End.

What often happens when someone buries his animal soul is two things.

1. By doing so he cannot feel the pain of others because he has spent a lifetime burying his own pain which he/she cannot feel. I believe this is why so many American Jews from Litwak backgrounds could not feel the pain of Jews being thrown out of their homes in Gush Katif. I can attest to the fact that I saw this in the Litwak world with Jews who were Yeshivah in 2005 here in Yerushalayim. They were completely oblivious to the cruelty that was about to occur. So many of them simply could not feel it because they had buried it in themselves for their own survival. This was much less of a problem in the Chassidic world because the emphasis of Chassidut is to direct the pain through service to G-d and one's fellow man. The pain is not buried in Chassidut...So one can feel the pain of others.

2. The 2nd effect is the building of a network of Chumrot to fill the emptiness of a buried animal soul. The Chumrot and focusing on those Chumrot make up for what is missing because it is buried. This is why the issue of Chumrot is less an issue for Sephardim. They somehow came back here more emotionally intact.

Yes, Mr. Cohen, but in order for them to be put to death, there has to be 2 witnesses in the room watching them do it, or they have to be "doing it" in a public park in full view. Behind closed doors between consenting adults, it is between them and G-d. The bigger problem of course comes about when the Medinah starts giving them marriage certificates. Then the entire Medinah or other legal jurisdiction becomes culpable in the sin.

The whole inyan (topic) of the Tochachah from VaYikrah in Parshat BeChukotai is that we would be chased in 7 different directions throughout the course of our exile. As discussed before on this blog, the 70 years between the destruction of the 2nd Temple and the crushing of the Bar Kochba revolt involved the purification of Malkhut, and then 6 x 300 year cycles followed ending in the Shoah at the end of the 6th 300 year cycle, 1800 years after 140ce. Each dimension of the animal soul suffered a fatal blow with each of the 7 Churbanot. By the end of the Shoah we were neshamot with Dry Bones. The Churban in Europe was so complete, though, that after Tach v'Tat (5408 and 5409), 300 years earlier, some of our people were already Dry Bones with 300 years of pogroms and a Shoah to go. For some of us all we had left was the attribute of Chessed. For some of us there was no animal soul at all. 300 years of survival, holding on. My L-rd it tears my heart out to even write about this, but it explains a lot about our situation today. Since 5708 (1948), the Dry Bones have developed sinews, organs, and flesh, but the Spirit of G-d is still missing. We are waiting on edge for the Arba Ruchot (the 2nd ko Amar HaShem) in Yechezkel's prophesy about the Dry Bones.

As for the American Jew on work experience who was refused entry to the UK, readers must realise that too many of the border staff at UK airports are poorly trained, overworked and not actually British from birth.
They are not very worldly wise either; I know of an Israeli who had considerable trouble entering the UK as a tourist because she had her place of birth listed in her Israeli passport as Ethiopia. The border control agent refused to believe that there were Israelis of Ethiopian heritage, when a simple internet search could have confirmed this.

There has also been horrible incompetence amongst this border force over the past decade, they have let in many thousands of immigrants who did not meet legal requirements because there was a political directive by the previous Labour government to let in people from poor countries, who would be presumed to vote Labour if granted residence.
Residence visas were handed out like Turkeys at a Nicky Barnes Harlem winter holiday giveaway.

As for Geller and Spencer, their presence could have incited violence and fanned sparks into fires; the whole country is tense from the recent London murder of the soldier by Jihadis and the following incidents of anti-Islamic violence.
Whilst Geller and Spencer's message contains some truth, we here would have to live with that violence every time we venture out of our front doors, and I prefer to try and work towards whatever calm is possible.

In short, London Male, I have to hold by Ben Franklin's immortal words in this particular case. It is more dangerous for a free society for security reasons to curtail freedom of speech (as long as what is being said is true) than it is to curtail the thugs who don't like what is being said. In the end you end up with more Muslim thugs controlling the govt. Slanderous speech should be brought to court under Slander and libel laws, but if speech is backed up with evidence, then it should not be curtailed.

The laws of lashon hara between Jews when the accusations are actually true are a different matter and don't apply to non-Jews or when Jews speak about non-Jews. Yet, the laws against slander apply to everyone. Pamela Geller usually backs up what she has to say with evidence.

Until 2008 such news would have sent the Dow down 200 points or more. Today good news is good. And absolutely horrible news is ....better!! Then they announced a 2.1% rise in factory orders lead by a 14% rise in Defense Spending. That number will likely fall now because of sequestration. The market did not rise on that latest release. The so called market is all lies and manipulation. It does not reflect the true nature of economic activity. For instance because of massive expansions in the Money Supply, mortgage rates fell to record lows until last month. This lead to a process where home buying picked up for the first time in four years. Now mortgage rates are on the rise. Trying to predict anything in an economy which is no longer free is impossible. I rest my case. And speaking of a Command Economy, China has simply stopped releasing stats. on their economy. Forget about making up numbers. They have simply stopped releasing numbers about what is going on in the world's most populous country.

Syria’s Annual Inflation Hits 200%

In an attempt to beat Western sanctions and halt the fall in the Syrian pound, the Assad regime – with the help of Iran, Russia, and China – has begun conducting all of its business in rials, roubles, and renminbi. This decision supplements other existing arrangements between Syria and its allies that are keeping the Syrian economy on life-support. These include transfers of $500 million per month in oil and an unlimited credit line with Tehran for food and oil-product imports.

According to Kadri Jamil, Syria’s prime minister for the economy, this life support is necessary because Syria’s devastated economy is the target of an elaborate plot, hatched by the U.S. and Britain, to “sink the Syrian pound.”

So, what about the sinking pound? The Syrian pound has lost 66.2% of its value in the last twelve months.

The rout of the Syrian pound has been widely reported in the press. But, Syria’s inflation problems that have accompanied the collapse of the pound have gone largely unreported. That’s because, beyond the occasional bits of anecdotal evidence, there has been nothing to report by way of reliable economic data.

To fill that void, I employ standard techniques to estimate Syrian’s current inflation. Currently, Syria is experiencing an annual inflation rate of 200%.

Indeed, Syria is experiencing a monthly inflation rate of 34%. To facilitate the monitoring of the quickly deteriorating situation in Syria, I am creating a resource which will allow readers to view up-to-date data on the Syrian pound and the country’s inflation problems. Soon, black-market exchange-rate data and ­inflation estimates for countries with troubled currencies like Syria will be made available via the “Troubled Currencies Project” – a joint Cato Institute-Johns Hopkins collaboration under my direction. In consequence, the days of Syria’s plunging pound and raging inflation being covered in a shroud of secrecy are soon coming to an end.

Hakadosh Baruch Hu is speaking to the Jews in Israel and the world eye to eye. These times are difficult; people die in accidents, natural disasters are happening on the ground, in the air and on the seas. The entire world is in chaos and complication. All the while that the world is steeped in evil, lies and deception, it seems that everything is fine - you protect me and I’ll protect you.

But when the Creator of the World enters, He breaks through and exposes the liars and cheaters and crooks, and truth begins to blossom, falsehood falls, and there is fighting and war just to overcome being put down, within the Jewish people and throughout the world.  Therefore the world has lost its direction and there is no solution for anything.

The Holy One, blessed be He, runs the world personally and precisely. He moves leaders of nations as though they were puppets on a string; they don’t know what will be from day to day. The sitra achra makes its way into the Jewish people from every direction, distracting people from Hashem’s plan to bring Redemption with mercy and reveal the King Mashiach, at this time, in our day, in our generation.

Draft Egypt army road-map to change constitution
Jerusalem Post/Reuters

CAIRO - Egypt's armed forces would suspend the constitution and dissolve an Islamist-dominated parliament under a draft political roadmap to be pursued if Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and the liberal opposition fail to agree by Wednesday, military sources said.

The sources told Reuters the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) was still discussing details and the plan, intended to resolve a political crisis that has brought millions of protesters into the streets, could be changed based on political developments and consultations.

Chief-of-staff General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called in a statement on Monday for Mursi to agree within 48 hours on power-sharing with other political forces, saying the military would otherwise set out its own road-map for the country's future.

In the case of Geller and Spencer, I have to stand by the maxim that says it is not wise to antagonise a barking dog.
The English Defence League is the organisation that they were to speak to. They are also thugs. Right now they are focussed on tackling radical Islam, but I have no doubt at all that their focus can shift to Jews.
Their street fighting factions are largely made up of Northern football firms, (hooligan collectives) who are no friends of Jews, and who sing songs glorifying the Shoah.
There are ways to stand up to radical Islam that are more intelligent and subtle than rabble rousing speeches.
The English Defence League will carry on regardless, we Jews need to prepare for if/when the population turns on us, signs of which have been apparent of late with anti-Zionism at it's highest since 1947/48, and anti-Shechita at an all time high.

Jews living outside of Eretz Yisrael are living in a movie, a fantasy. The Holy One will not listen to a single one of their prayers because they will not listen to the Holy One and not coming to Eretz Yisrael. They are similar to Bnei Yisrael who did not want to enter Eretz Yisrael, when the Holy One led them around for 40 years and allowed only the new generation to enter. Jews who are living outside of Eretz Yisrael, including Israelis, it is not worth it for them to take the Holy One to task! It is not worth it for them! The Master of the world will finish off your economy in America and Europe, because the Jews living there remain there only, only for the money and materialism, materialism and money! They don’t want to come to Eretz Yisrael and participate in the safeguarding and protection of Am Yisrael!

The Master of the World, the Father of the Jews, requests of those Jews who are real Jews, who are living outside the Land of Israel and are dispersed in the world, to come up urgently, urgently to the Holy Land of Israel. Our Father in Heaven is the most merciful in the world, but He is judgment as well as mercy.

The hatred and antisemitism against the Jews will continue in enormous dimensions in order to drive them out from all the places where they live in the world, from their cars, from their places of employment and from their homes, to the Holy Land of Israel. There are those who are messengers of the Master of the World to bring up the Jews to the Holy Land of Israel. After the destruction of the Temple, there were messengers of the Master of the World who drove out the Jews FROM the Land of Israel.

The Holy One blessed be He is calling out and shouting for all the Jews living and traveling in the lands of exile to arise and come to the Land of Israel!

That God forbid, God forbid, the Jews won't move from France or from other lands to live in another country.  Real Jews, leave your places of residence and duplicate them only in the Land of Israel.  It's a pity to invest money unnecessarily by moving to other places when in the end they will arrive in the Holy Land of Israel. It's a pity, wake up, understand the hints of the Creator of the world.  The Jewish State, the most strongly shielded in the world, more than any country - the Land of Israel is shielded like the sky.  

The chaos, complications and conflicts in the whole world, in the forces of nature, in the Arab countries and the world economy, it's all so that the Jews will come up to the Land of Israel and stop traveling the world.  Instead of a third world war, God forbid, there should never be, instead there will be aliyah, the coronation of the King Messiah and the building of the Third Temple, and peace will prevail in the world.

"Children are a National Asset"
Arutz 7

National Insurance Director Shlomo Mor-Yosef addressed the Forum of Administrators conference in Jerusalem Tuesday, "Some may feel austerity measures are the only economic option, but please realize: Child support is an essential element of the economy. Children must be protected from steps like these, after all, they are a national asset whose best interests must always be kept in mind."

Says Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi:

We find ourselves in a very difficult time, where the sitra achra is bothering Am Yisrael very much. Parents need to be very careful not to transfer their anxiety and anger to their children. They should not hit or be angry with them, since the children are not to blame – the parents are.

From the anxiety, the children get scared and close up, and it’s hard for them to study. Jewish parents first need to educate themselves and then their children. They should not bring into the house what is inappropriate from the outside. When the home is holy and the table – is like the altar, peace, safety and security reign in a Jewish home.

The government of Israel and the great leaders of Israel: stop dealing with matters that have no importance. Boys – girls, together or separate! Go with your own feet and see with your own eyes the children of Am Yisrael, ages 3 to 18 and more who are destroying themselves with the drug culture and drink until they are unconscious! An entire generation can be destroyed because of drugs and drinking and crime. In this area the government of Israel must open its eyes wide and be concerned about children in Israel! They need to worry about their education and close all the drug clubs that are destroying them. Drug clubs – this is the quiet way of destroying the children of Israel! We must have massive public efforts to save our children, our boys and our girls! No amount of money can be spared, no strength and resources withheld – to save our children! We should not get involved with other things – boys, girls, for this is simply unnecessary.

Yasher Koach to the government of Israel for the budget approval of free education from the age of 3! It is the government’s responsibility to continue the war against drugs, alchohol and clubs that are ruining the children of Am Yisrael!

The Government of Israel must hike its budgets and invest in saving the children of Am Yisrael from drug clubs and alcohol! This comes before budgeting for safety against Iran and Arab countries, before everything! Iran and the Arab countries are in the Holy One’s hands! He is leading them! Alcohol and drugs are in human hands and it is urgent to save the children of Am Yisrael!

Couples who are looking to divorce, who think one is worth more than the other, they should look at their children and be ashamed! The children are torn to shreds and never forgive the divorce! The Creator wants the children to grow up in a good environment and with good deeds and not be in pain and tears. Every Jew, before deciding on divorce, God forbid, should first take a personal spiritual inventory, because this is not a good and clean choice!

Each parent must protect their children from assimilation in Eretz Yisrael and so difficult things will not occur! Not everyone knows: the goyim want, God forbid, to damage and destroy the daughters of Israel, like Kozbi bat Tzur, who wanted to topple Moshe Rabaynu together with all of Am Yisrael. The purpose of gentile leaders in Eretz Yisrael - to destroy the daughters of Israel and their honor!

After that, the second area to deal with is the youth who drink heavily and get drunk and destroy their spirits and their souls. We must guard and protect our young children, our youth who are the next generation of Am Yisrael.

We must return the Sudanese to their country according to law, the quicker the better! Sudan hates Israel, she sends representatives to Tel Aviv – it has a center in the heart of Tel Aviv. The infiltrators want to take over and destroy, God forbid, Eretz Yisrael with a cold war, they have a lust for harming Am Yisrael. All bleeding hearts that have pity on them, better should have pity on the elderly and on children from the age of 10 and up – these are truly the impoverished! They are the future of Am Yisrael and we have to help them to resist hard liquor and drugs! We must help Jews and Jewesses not to assimilate into the goyim! Assimilation is a major problem in Eretz Yisrael! Parents must be on alert and not give up on their children – they seduce them and destroy the Jew in them. In America there should have been 20 million Jews, and more than 10 million Jews assimilated and disappeared!

All Jewish women must teach their children the ten commandments, so that they will know what it means to be Jewish! It must be explained to them that we are a treasured nation, a special nation that must not mix and assimilate among the goyim!

Jewish parents, be careful with your daughters, from age 11-18, regarding intermarriage, the purpose of the goyim is to destroy and defile the daughters of Israel. We must safeguard our children from hard liquor and drugs, for this will influence their lives, and impact the state of Israel.

Our path is to make Aliyah where possible; for those of us who remain here for various reasons, but who hope to make Aliyah one day, in the meantime to stay out of trouble.

The tactic of "apologising" for our faith or Israel is not one I follow or believe in, it is counter productive.
We have to be staunch defenders of our identity, but in a nuanced way that fits in with our local political and social landscape.

I once spent an hour in a British Muslim's house, where I had to wait for a mutual friend who had an emergency.
I took out cans of Spring Mango nectar, and offered them to the host.
He declined upon seeing Hebrew letters on the cans, saying he boycotts Israeli produce.
I asked him why, and he trotted out the usual biased anti-Israel line.
I then explained to him about Mitzvot, how the land was holy for us, and how we really had no choice but to try and live there.
He had never heard anything about this, and it made him stop and think.
He may not have liked what he was hearing, but it was the first time someone had provided him with a spiritual reason for living in Israel, as opposed to a political one.
I prefer to explain my identity in this way if encountering opposition to it.

Yep, Jews in Western Europe had ample time to leave Europe after the students of the Ga'on of Vilna paved the way. Two full generations passed, and Torah committed Jews from Europe simply stopped showing up until the Chovevei Tzion movement which was somewhat secular came in the 1880s. Rav Shimshon Rafa'el Hirsch zt"l saw the Reform try to turn Berlin into Jerusalem. Perhaps the better choice would have been to leave Germany en masse for Jerusalem leaving the Reform behind. Israel would be in a healthier position today if he had called for that. At least the Arabs would know why we came do more mitzvot.

If someone could explain to me, why did Rav Shimshon Hirsch have a great love for Eretz Yisrael, and yet he opposed the movement of Rav Tzvi Hirsch Kalischer to return to Eretz Yisrael? Do you know what a difference it would have made if Rav Hirsch had supported the return of all Western European Orthodox Jews to Eretz Yisrael in the mid-1800s?? before the secular Zionists even showed up??

So then I go to the Ezra website and I find this priceless statement:

"Rav (Shimshon Raphael) Hirsch, like many of his time were against Zionism and believed that the Bnei Yisroel were in Golus for a reason, thus the youth movements of Kahal Addas Yeshurun, and other similar communities didn’t have Zionism at the forefront of their ideologies."

And all I can ask is why not?? And then I see "Bnei Yisroel were in Golus for a reason", and I ask, "Where have I heard THAT before?" I am sorry I miss the logic. I need an explanation.

The Torah states, "The Children of Israel were armed (chamushim) when they went up from Egypt." Rashi cites Chazal who explain the word "chamushim" to mean that only one fifth of the Jewish people left Egypt and four fifths perished during the days of darkness. In the Portion of Bo, Rashi cites Chazal who explain that the reason four fifths of the Jewish people perished during the plague of darkness was so that the Egyptians should not witness the demise of the evil ones among the Jewish people (those who did not want to leave Egypt). It was important that the Egyptians should be unaware of the destruction of four fifths of the Jews because they would say that the Jewish people were dying as they were. Hashem wanted the Egyptians to understand that it was only they who were being punished.

The Midrash Tanchuma offers another interpretation as to why the Jews who were evil died during the days of darkness. The Jews who survived the days of darkness praised and offered thanks to Hashem for not allowing the Egyptians to be aware of the demise of the Jews who perished during darkness because the Egyptians would have rejoiced over their death. The question is - why is it important for Chazal to inform us that the Jews who survived the days of darkness gave thanks and praise to Hashem for not allowing the Egyptians to witness the demise of the evil Jews?

It is difficult to understand. If all the Jews in Egypt witnessed the revealed miracles, which clearly identified the Hand of Hashem- how is it possible that the vast majority of the Jewish people did not want to leave Egypt? As it is stated, "v'chamushim - only one fifth left Egypt." It is clear that there was a fundamental difference between these two groups of Jews. One group possessed a characteristic and quality that allowed them to fully appreciate and internalize the events that they had witnessed. However, the other group did not possess this quality.

The most fundamental quality an individual needs in order to be able to recognize and understand situations correctly is "ha'karas ha'tov- recognition of the good." If a person has the ability to recognize that he is the beneficiary of some one else's kindness then he is able to appreciate and understand his benefactor. However, if the person does not have the capacity to view himself as the beneficiary of someone else's kindness then he is always suspect of his benefactor's motive. Thus, he remains untrusting.

Despite the tragedy of the destruction of four fifths of the Jewish people, the one fifth that survived gave thanks and praise to Hashem for not allowing the Egyptians to rejoice in the demise of the evil Jews who did not want to leave Egypt. One would think that those who survived were overwhelmed with their grief and could not think of anything but attending to the burial needs of those who died. Nevertheless, the Midrash tells us that despite the tragedy that had befallen them, they saw Hashem's kindness and thus offered thanks and praise to Him. Because of this quality of ha'karas ha'tov, they were truly able to appreciate Hashem's concern for them. Therefore when they witnessed the miracles and the destruction of Egypt, they were fully trusting that this was only to bring about their redemption. If a person has the quality of ha'karas ha'tov, he will then have relevance to spirituality because he is able to process the events of his life in a way where he sees the goodness of Hashem.

A breath of fresh air, ahavat Yisrael from the left, MK Erel Margalit (Labor).
"The hareidim are parasites who do not want to work and want live off our backs? No, I really do not think so."
"Hareidi-religious Jews in Israel wish to make a decent living", criticizing those who discriminate against hareidim based on their physical appearance.

Yep, that is good. But I don't want to throw a wrench into the monkeyworks or shower on the parade. Yet, a lot of this new found love for Chareidim is because Aryeh Deri and Moshe Gafni have reached out to them so that they could both unite against their common enemy, the evil settlers. Common alliances based on causeless hatred pop up in this country from time to time. When Labor MKs start saying the same things about those of us beyond the Green Line, I will really take notice. I guess the present statement is a start in the right direction. Sorry for my being a bit jaded and cautious. As of this coming Sunday, we have been here for ten years. Over the last ten years I have seen these alliances enough times to be wary.

Just as I thought, here is Eitan Cabal in action trying to use the Injustice system here to disqualify Rav Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita.

So much for Ahavat Yisrael coming from the Labor MKs. Maybe Eitan should talk to Erel Margolit?

Egyptian Military Takes Control of Egypt. Morsi is removed as president. The Muslim Brotherhood is now out of power. Let us pray that this will be positive news for Israel and the world.

First of all according to Ezekiel, Meshech and Tuval (European and Siberian flanks) of the Russian Empire is the premiere military power to come against Jerusalem. So I would expect the Russians to take over world security as America quickly recedes as a world power. Forget about Gog. We likely missed out on our kinder, gentler Gog opportunity in the previous Shmittah cycle.

Secondly, it is really unclear how this Egyptian Revolution will end up. When the Egyptians had free parliamentary elections just 1 1/2 years ago which were annulled, the Muslim Brotherhood received over 37.5% of the vote, and the more radical Salafists received about 27.5% of the Egyptian vote. That is a total of 65% of the vote. That leaves about 35% that voted for a Western style liberal democracy. I doubt that there has been more than a 5% shift toward liberal democracy in Egypt no matter if the 35 to 40% of Egyptians who like liberalism put mobs of millions on the streets. I have no idea how the 60 to 65% of Egyptians who like Islamicism will counter the decision of the mighty Egyptian Army. This is all a work in progress. Good night.

Sifra commentary on Parshat Acharei Mote, parashta 8, paragraph 8:
What did they [the Gentiles of Egypt and Canaan] do?
A man would marry a man, and a woman would marry a woman.
A man would marry both a woman and her daughter.
A woman would marry two [men at the same time].
Therefore, [the Torah] says: “…AND YOU MAY NOT
FOLLOW THEIR STATUES.” (Vayikra, chapter 18, verse 3).

Sifra is also known as Torat Kohanim.
Rambam attributes Sifra to Rab, who was active around year 220 CE.
Malbim attributes Sifra to Rabbi Chiya, also active around year 220 CE.

Good morning Mr. Cohen: I would be curious if either ancient Egypt or Cana'an actually granted a ketubah for such forbidden relationships between homosexuals. That is it is one thing for two men to live together and have relations and claim that they are "married". It is quite another thing for the State or legal jurisdiction to recognize their marriage by giving them legal documentation recognizing their marriage. Does anyone speak about that? Thanks.

In today's post there was a headline saying that the Israeli law [for toeva] is not far away. Most Israelis are genuinely kind and I don't think will ostracize these people. They're already in the IDF, and personnel look away.

There is an extremely interesting scholarly article discussing just this topic by a Dr A Hirsch.

Russia says, "democracy is not good for everyone."

However, I didn't think Egypt's govt was a democracy and the Brhd is not democratic; it was racing toward sharia under Morsi. That's why I don't understand this latest revolution. One might think that the protestors REALLY want democracy. But then, the first to speak up in favor after the military overthrow was Saudi (salafists) Arabia; and Turkey's weirdagon (caliphate) was upset. Where are they headed??

Total Chaos, as this Freaking evil world comes to an end.

65% of Egyptians voted for an Islamic country at the exclusion of the rights of others of course. Those were the parliamentary results of the late 2011 early 2012 elections. Those elections were annulled by the Egyptian military because aid of 1.6 billion dollars was flowing from the United States. And Morsi was overthrown by the same "pro-American" Egyptian military. Now the other 65% are in Tahrir Square. And they are angry.

So, that's what Putin meant: Egypt detested America's (the reference to $$ democracy) interference in their govt?

But then, they have been taking US$ for many many years, and so did Morsi. Now, you're saying that Morsi, who was getting rid of so many from the prev. govt., instituting Sharia, and who needed the $$ for the economy, was detested for taking $$?

Does that leave the Salafists and MBhood in a possible merger to take over the military? Is that possible? Then afterwards, they will fight it out among themselves?

All these references to Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi are surprising.

I've seen much of his writing, and it sounds very unimpressive.

Definitely, nothing special and kind of childish style and contents.

David: Nir Ben Artzi is our best cheerleader. We need a constant weekly voice of encouragement to "grin and bear" the malkhut of the wicked. Ben Artzi provides that strength to keep up our spirits as the wicked allow and encourage the world to descend into chaos. It seems childish because the part of us that needs love through these dark times is that little child in all of us.
