Episode 5: The Islamicists Fight Back

Well you all thought that the chaos was over yesterday, didn't you?  The coup d'etat took place on July 3rd. A Western jerk named El Baradai who once said that the Iranians had no intentions of making nuclear weapons was named interim leader of the "democratic and moderate" forces who of course, they say, are in the majority in Egypt.  Suddenly the 65% who a year and a half ago voted for an Islamicist parliament have showed up in Tahrir Square (we are talking millions) today, and they are mad as heck.  I doubt that this Egypt coup will be controlled by the Egyptian military no matter what the Powers at Be have in mind.  Happy Fourth of July...Egypt.  LIVE FEED

UPDATE:  For whatever reason, the live feed stopped before midnight while the protest was still going strong.  Here is an article to chew on until after Shabbat.  Shabbat Shalom.

It will be interesting to see how peaceful this rally after Friday prayers turns out to be:

Melachim Aleph (Kings I) 19:11
Klipah 1: And behold, HaShem was passing, and a great powerful wind, smassing moutnaisn and breaking rocks, went before Hashem.  "HaShem is not in the wind!"  (Eliyahu was told).

Klipah 2: After the wind came an earthquake!  "HaShem is not in the earthquake."

Klipah 3: After the earthquake came a fire!  "HaShem is not in the fire."

After the fire came a still, thin (barely audible) sound.  (HaShem's light was in the barely audible sound.  Some say this is klipah Noga and can be uplifted to Qedushah.  So it does not matter how much noise Islam can produce in the world at this present time.  It is all leading to destruction.

If anyone is so naive that they think the worst is over they are badly mistaken. The Muslim Brotherhood is marshaling its resources as we speak and gathering weapons and strategizing. They aren't about to walk away from this. The chaos in prophecy has't even really started yet.

I am not so sure there is much to choose about "principles" between the Egyptian Generals and Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Mursi was sort of a gangster President, assembling as much power as possible for himself. The Generals want that power too, and have taken it for now.
From what I can tell it is mainly about access to American cash, and how much can be siphoned off into slush funds and private accounts.

Egypt, as we said, will be exactly like Syria and worse, they won't have law and order.  Says the Holy One, blessed be He: 'It will be an outburst' - there is an outburst without hindrance! There will be destruction and slaughter in Egypt and there won't be anyone who can help because it's an additional Divine process.

What's your insight in terms of prophecy of why President Obama is so alarmed and panicked that his boy Morsi is no longer in charge?

Obama's debasing of Israel started in Cairo. Egypt is the Biblical source of tumah / impurity. TO the peoples of antiquity Egypt appeared as the very mother of magic. In the mysterious Nile country they found a magical system much more highly developed than any within their native knowledge, and the cult of the dead, with which Egyptian religion was so strongly identified, appeared to the foreigner to savour of magical practice. The Sages teach that Bnei Yisrael in Egypt fell to the 49th level of tumah. NO surprise that Obama started there.

Obama supports political Islam, and thus supports the Muslim Brotherhood. The rise of political Islam, under the misnomer “Arab Spring,” is the most genocidally anti-Semitic movement on the planet today. The mullahs and the ayatollahs and the various religious leaders who are part of this movement consistently pour forth the most violent hatred toward the Jewish people and perpetually suggest that it is Allah’s will that the Jews be annihilated.

The Hagel nomination is just the icing on the cake. Of all the people that Obama could have chosen for Secretary of Defense he chose a man who apparently claimed in public that Israel controls the U.S. Department of State. The Department of State! The U.S. Department of State is the very least friendly branch of the American government toward Israel and, in fact, opposed its creation during the Truman administration. Traditionally, the Department of State has been “Arabist” and has sought to withhold U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State of Israel. Yet, somehow, against all reason, Chuck Hagel thinks that the Jews of Israel control the American State Department.

America is falling in a total of 2 x 49 year cycles. The first fall was of the most left wing third of America from 1918 until 1967. It started with Wilsonian progressivism and spread with the debauchery of the Roaring 20s, when they asked can we still go to Heaven if we raise a little Hell? Watch the 1925 play, No No Nanette to have a better understanding of the debauchery of the most liberal 1/3 of American culture of the 1920s. Before WW1, no respectful women would show up at the beach with even her lower calves exposed. At the end of WW1, liberal America was falling one level at a time. The more conservative 2/3rds was still in control. So no one panicked as it was happening. What started in 1967 was that the Great Middle began to disintegrate down to the level of the most leftwing 1/3, one step at a time. We are now at the point where possibly 50% of Americans are below Mem Tet (49th) level of impurity. The Titanic is sinking. When it plops over the next two years is anyone's guess.

An interesting event took place in the last year of Jubilee 1966-67. It was in that year that Israel captured Jerusalem, taking back that land in the 6 day war. Spurred on with this discovery, I
counted back another 50 years to see what occurred in that year. In the year of Jubilee previous to that, 1917-1918, General Allenby of Britain captured Jerusalem from the Turks. These two years of Jubilee marked God’s first two steps in returning the land of the Ancient nation of Israel back to its original owners, the modern day nation of Israel.

Ah, Meir, but 1967 as you pointed out was the year after a Shmittah year. It was the first year of a Shmittah cycle since we have no Beit HaMikdash and no Sanhedrin. The 50th year will be 5776. And your discovery was predicted by Yehudah ben Shmuel haChassid of Regensburg 800 years ago. He said at the time that there was a little tribe of Muslims in the Great Byzantine Empire called the Ottomans. He predicted that they would not only capture Constantinople, but that they would also conquer Yerushalayim and rule over it for exactly 400 years. (The Ottomans ruled from 1517 until 1917.) Then Yerushalayim would lie hefker for 50 years (one Yovel) and would belong to no one. It lay hefker under British control until 5708, and then a no man's land split Yerushalayim in half until 5727. And then he said that the Messianic Yovel cycle with Yerushalayim back in Jewish control would last until 5776. pretty exacting stuff, along with another piece of info directly related to this that I will do next week, bli neder, about the Yovel of Yovelot.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Here is a chart partially explaining the other count of Yovelot. It is the Ezra haSofer (The Scribe) Yovel count. Notice that during the 2nd Temple period, the Yovel count was 50 years long. As soon as the 2nd Temple was destroyed, there were no Yovel years. Having a Yovel year is dependent on both having a Temple and a Sanhedrin. So the chart reverts to 49 year "Yovel" cycles. The 47th Yovel Cycle starting with Ezra the Scribe ended 5726 (1966) with that Shmittah year 5726. The 48th Yovel Cycle began in 5727, and the 49 year count will end in 5775. 5776 begins the 49th or Kingship that is in Kingship 49 year Yovel Cycle. Kingship that is in Kingship is Mashiach ben David.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

According to the Zohar the meteorite shower on "the Great City of Rome" will take place in 5773 or the first few months of 5774. Why? Because the Zohar VaYeira itself changes the reference point of the redemption in the year in midstream to year 5766 1/2 and then 5772 1/2. This means that the 5773 date for the meteorite shower could very well be a year which began on Rosh Chodesh Nisan 5773. Rosh Chodesh Nisan is a Rosh HaShana. Yet, the Civil War now Sunni/ Shiite World War in Syria must gather all of the NATO partners against Russia in Syria first. That is a tricky thing since the Turks are rightfully scared to death that if they actively support the Jihadi rebels, both Russia and Iran will attack them on two separate fronts, a very distinct possibility indeed. And the Turks are the cog on the wheel for full NATO involvement in Syria. Once they have gathered against Meshech and Tuval (The Russians}, they will combine their forces to divide Yerushalayim and will likely call for some form of international conference to do so.

The matter of Egypt's parallel to the United States as an End of Days finale could happen from right now until the end of 5775, the 49th year starting with both the Summer of Love and the 6 Day War since America could simply be judged below Mem Tet (49th) level of impurity between now and two years from now at the end of 49 years. The striking down of DOMA in the Supreme Court has a tremendous amount to do with bringing America down to that auspicious level of impurity since the Makah v'Patish (final hammer blow) on "49 years" of Free Love is to grant marriage or Civil Union Contracts to male homosexuals. The Supreme Ct. decision is therefore a tumah barometer low point near or at the 49th level of impurity. Therefore total chaos in Egypt will likely parallel America's fall below the 49th level whenever that is judged to have fully occurred.

One of my thoughts last year about the collapse of the USDollar, the world's reserve currency, relates to the fact the that Gematriah of dollar in Hebrew is 240 which is the Gematriah of Amalek. 240 years from 1776ce. (5536) is 5776. And since America was founded on the 17th of Tamuz in 5536, 240 years later is the 17th of Tamuz 5776. That would be the latest date for total collapse of course since it is in the Motzei Shmittah or Yovel year already.

It should be pointed out that both aspects of the Geulah for the Shmittah year and for the Yovel year according to halakhah begin and end with 1st of Tishrei, not Nisan. The Yovel year is a bit more complex in that the Shofar blast for our Liberty, to return land to ancestral inheritances in Eretz Yisrael and to end the term of Jewish held slaves is on Yom Kippur, not Rosh HaShana, but again also in Tishrei.

Since you mentioned 1776, i realized (on Shabbat) that while the Reform movement was coming into vogue, and throwing out many Jewish customs/halachos, the early Americans about the same time, were fashioning their new country based partly on those Jewish ideals. So as the Reformists were throwing away their heritage, their heritage was floating over the seas and landed on the east coast..

During the same time, the birth of Zionism was in labor.
Imagine being able to look down from Shomayim and watching all this take place.

On the other hand the year for tree fruits for all years except for Shmittah begins on Tu B'Shevat. In the Shmittah year, halakhah still considers tree fruits like olives which are harvested in Cheshvan to be sixth year fruits obligated in Ma'aser Ani. So tree fruits that reach at least 1/3 of their size before the Shmittah year commences are NOT hefker (ownerless) even if they are picked in the Shmittah year although trees cannot be trimmed in the Shmittah year at all. Yet the fruit can be harvested as sixth year fruit as long as the 1/3 growth stipulation has been met. The problem with fruit trees therefore lasts into Motzei Shmittah when some fruit that grew in the Shmittah year are harvested. On the other hand, both vegetables and grain are considered Shmittah fruits from the 1st of Tishrei 5775. And one cannot plant a tree after Tu B'Av 5774 because it will finally take root after Rosh HaShana 5775. So if you live in Eretz Yisrael, get ready. Since parts of the Southern Golan are Ever HaYarden (across the Yarden) in the fields of Bashan, you will have to ask them how the laws of Ma'aserot and Shmittah apply there.

Glenn is the spiritual gilgul of Dutch Reformed Calvinsts, the only philo-Semites in the Xtian world. The Greek Orthodox and Serbian Orthodox Churches were tolerant, but the rest of the Xtian World in Europe hated our guts.

Rush Limbaugh is Rosh shel Esav, the only part of Esav which is pure and buried in the Cave of Machpelah. Other than that I am not sure what else in America can somehow hold out as a piece of America that makes it into Yemot HaMashiach. America as a whole will not make it. Its last opportunity for that was St. Iram (Santorum) the last prince of Edom after Magdiel. It was an opportunity that was doomed to not happen.

Correct, and the difference is that The gilgulim of the Dutch Reformed in America have been internally transformed from a nation under Yoshke to a nation under G-d. So these gilgulim are not necessarily trying to harvest Jewish souls for Yoshke. Glenn Beck, if one listens to him regularly, wants to harvest American souls to "common decency" under G-d not Yoshke. For him at least, Yoshke is a deeply personal matter. That is one of the primary differences between philo-Semitism in America as opposed to philo-Semitism in Europe.

It's very difficult to generalize about the Xtian world's philo-semitism. Corrie ten Boom was a good person, but in the final analysis clearly wanted to harvest souls. Plus, her message of unconditional forgiveness of evil is very wrong.

As to the Greek Orthodox church...I sat with the Patriarch of Antioch and All the East ( Ignatius IV) in 1998, and I would say he & his church was the most virulently anti-semitic and anti-Israel group I have ever encountered. (and I have encountered quite a few) They were arrogant & vicious and I was afraid for my life actually. They have jurisdiction over Europe & Britain as well as the Middle East. Terrible terrible. Not sure why you are thinking they were philo-semitic, Dov unless I misunderstood you. They administer partial oversight of that dreadful church in the Rova..the church of the h.sepulchre. (although NOT the same Greek Orth. Archdiocese that holds so much land in Jerusalem.)

I was speaking of the Greek Orthodox Church during our long galut from Eretz Yisrael. Jews in Salonika were unmolested by the Greeks for hundreds of years. They were not prepared for the pogroms and genocide when Hitler showed up. Today the Greek Orthodox Church hates us because we are disproving their "wandering Jew" theory, that we would wander forever and ever and ever.

Also, I agree, there is no reconciling Xtianinty with Judaism. Their idea of irreparable sin from birth without Yoshke is as foreign to Judaism as pork and Sabbath on Sundays. Yet, some Xtian sects tended toward common decency for its own sake more than others. Today, I believe, the American church, the Mormons, most believe in this concept. Yet, there are many other American Churches that believe in this too. In Europe there were very few churches which were philo-Semitic at their core. The Dutch Reformed Calvinists were the most note-worthy of them. And believe it or not, this is where we got into trouble. During the 17th Century, the Dutch West India Company was most involved in the slave trade. Orthodox Jews were so integrated into the business world of 17th Century Holland that about 1/3 of the members on the Board of Directors of the Dutch West Indies Co., were Sephardic Jews. Calypso Louie Farrakhan is quick to always point that out.

Remember how when the US turned on Mubarak, Saudi Arabia got all upset? That always confused me b/c everyone knew that the Muslim Brotherhood would take over. Since the brotherhood are Sunni's just like the Saudi's are, I couldn't understand why the Saudi's were reportedly so upset.

Well fast forward a year and take a look around: the sunni brotherhood was knocked out and the Iranian backed Assad in Syria LOVES it! Rather than cutting off military aide as required under US law, our government has decided to continue funding the military machine that just ousted the Sunni Brotherhood. That decision is definitely music to Shiite ears.

In Syria, on the other hand, despite the fact that Assad has crossed the "red line" by using chemical weapons on his own people and despite the fact that Obama pledged only a few weeks ago to do something about it, today the administration is backtracking on a pledge to arm the rebels for fear that the weapons might "get into the wrong hands". More musice to the Shia ears.

And this is after already toppling the Sunni Iraq government and allowing that country to become alligne guessed it: Iran!!!

So if I'm a sunni muslim right now, I'd be a little worried.

Unfortunately, if I'm Israel (which bH, I am) I'd be paying close attention to Iran.

Rabbi Leib, Pull over I want off the bus.
Na, Here is a link for you.

Also I appreciate everyone who has contacted me... But I need to set something straight... Some have said we will come when things get bad... Listen please don't wait till then. If you honestly think I am canning all this food for you. You are wrong I have a big family and if you are not here to help other than a hospitable meal and place to sleep for a night I have nothing more to offer you. If you need need more then you need to get here and buy you a cheap house and prepare it. I love everyone but my family will come first.

Yes, for Ariela's sake, anyone who wants to join her in her country location when IT hits the fan should be willing to do two things.

1. Help her with the kosher non-perishable food storage by purchasing some of the non-perisahable food. One has to take an active role in the prepping process to be part of the community when it hits the fan

2. Purchase a firearm and learn how to shoot properly. Storing food is a big part of this process. Guarding the non-perishable food is another part of this process. Be an active participant. If you plan on traveling from a "blue state" to Ariela's farm, take some time out of your busy schedule to help her prepare in advance for your arrival.

Visit her farm. Help purchase some non-perishable food for you and your family. And buy a firearm, and take some lessons in its use. If you are from New York City where firearms seem to be forbidden, leave it on her farm. But please take an active role in your future "survival". That is why it is called prepping because you are preparing in advance.

Dear Me'ir: When Gideon Levy, yimach shmo, posts an article on his dirty little rag, I simply take it as a sign that in order to serve G-d, I should hold by the polar opposite opinion to his opinion, the rasha. We have three brave women on our yishuv, Ronit Peskin, Leah Aharoni, and Jennie Menashe, who are working hard with their own organization to end the persecution of Torah observant women at the Kotel on Rosh Chodesh. We are in a "vicious" war with the princes and princesses of darkness called the Erev Rav, the paragons of popularity and World Public Opinion. Just realize that HaAretz is the organ of the sitra acher, and that the Truth is not a concept that wins by popular consent. Only in Yemot HaMashiach will the Truth be popular.

His reference to "Palestinian neighborhoods" is telling. There is no such thing as a Palestinian neighborhood. There are only Arab neighborhoods which stretch from Morocco to Iraq, from the Atlantic Ocean to the border with Persia. A few of those neighborhoods happen to be in Jerusalem.

The Truth is a rational concept. It is not determined by our emotional response to an observation...even though our emotions are important to understanding the pain of others and enjoying life's pleasures. Our emotional responses do NOT define what is objectively true.

Why are the Bnai Yissachar our best judges? According to Me'am Loez it is because the heart of the sapphire, the birthstone of Yissachar, is dark. Sapphire brick is also the footstool of the Heavenly Throne. When the heart is not involved in the decision of a Judge, the facts of a case will not be influenced by the judge's emotions.

There will be a time when we will be able to trust our emotions when making a decision rooted in the Truth. The Onyx stone, Yosef's birthstone, helps a the Kohen HaGadol by wearing the weight of it on his shoulders, feel the pain and the ecstasy of every Jew. It this way Onyx is the opposite of sapphire and will have its purpose in Olam HaBa after Techiyat HaMeitim when our emotions will be pure and not influenced by our evil inclinations. So we learn where to find onyx in the world from the River Pishon, a river that flows from Gan Eden. Only when we reach a Gan Eden type existence will we be able to use the power of onyx to discover what is true even though it is important for the Kohen haGadol to feel this pain when he serves us all. Until then as a judge of Truth, stick with the sapphire, which darkens the heart in order to make decisions of innocence or guilt, right and wrong, good or evil.

And this is why a woman can be a Shofeitet but not a Dayanah (Diana). A Shofeit is open to Ruach HaQodesh and even Nevuah when making a decision. In such cases it is fine to fuse emotions with the rational process of jurisprudence and precedence. A Dayan does not necessarily have such influence and assistance from Heaven above. So a Dayan must fully rely on judicial precedence and rational thought. The fusion between reason and emotion must be curtailed. The Corpus callosum which connects the left and right side of our brains is much thinner in men than it is in women. Women are made differently than men are. They are made to fuse the deductive and the inductive halves of the brain, a fusion which gives them more Binah consciousness. In almost every avenue of life this is an asset for women over men. Yet, in the area of "deciding the facts of a case", it is not an asset but a hindrance. So while a woman can be a Shofetet like Devorah HaNavia, she should not be a Dayanah.

The first person to break this taboo was Nimrod HaRasha who murdered his father Kush and took his mother to be his wife. She had many names, but Nimrod HaRasha made her the Dayanah (Diana) of his realm. She lived hundreds of years because of her proximity to the pre-Flood World and by many today involved in Magic or Witchcraft, she is considered a goddess, G-d forbid. Just like he was a mighty hunter, she was a mighty huntress. The fact that he made her Chief Judge of the realm simply added to his wickedness.

Watching Judge Jeanine on Foxnews, I have to say that she would have made a far better Chief Prosecutor for any district in the United States than a judge. Her passion and her intellect fused together are impeccable. But to be a superb judge, one must have the Judicial temperament of an Antonin Scalia. Yes, in the hour when it comes to express his opinion, he is passionate, but in the hour where he is deciding the law he is pure intellect. At the time that a judge in "deciding", it is best to do so with books on legal precendents, with a sharp mind, and an unfeeling heart. The only fear during that hour should be one's fear of G-d over the weight of the case that sits before him.

Value of the Syrian Pound Hits an All-Time Low

The Regime has imposed harsh penalties for currency trading on the black-market. This strategy proved wildly unsuccessful when it was utilized by the Iran in October of 2012.

Indeed, as was the case in Iran, attempts to suppress currency exchange have sparked a panic – a run on the Syrian pound. As of 10 July 2013, the value of the Syrian pound on the black market has hit an all time low, with the current black-market exchange rate now sitting at 295.00 SYP/USD.

This has sent the implied monthly inflation rate in Syria skyrocketing.

Yes, Syria’s implied monthly inflation rate is now 91.9%. This means that Syria has exceeded the threshold for hyperinflation (an inflation rate of 50% per month). Only time will tell if this run on the Syrian pound will continue. But, for the time being, we can be sure that the Syrian pound will remain a troubled currency.

from a long-time lurker and infrequent poster:
Rav Dov - Your present-to-past connecting-the-dots posts are fascinating.
Here's something I thought would be of's a repost from the 'geula watch' blog.
In 2014 - 2015 a rare sequence of Red Blood Moon lunar eclipses will occur on the Jewish Holidays of Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles ( Sukkot ). In addition to the Tetrad occurrence, 2 solar eclipses will complement the 4 lunar eclipses on the Jewish New Year and the Feast of Trumpets. A comet and meteor shower will pass by earth on the Jewish holiday of Tu BiSh'vat a few months before Jewish Eclipse sequence begins.

This is significant relative to the Geula because the last 2 times the blood red moons occurred on these holidays was first when
Israel regained the Old City (and other land) in 1967. And second (the time before that) was during the War of Independence in 1948/1949. However, I don't make any claims as to what it will mean (for us) that it is happening again in 2014/2015.

LondonMale, the Saudi CSS-2 missiles purchased in 1988 are old liquid fuelled Chinese missiles which are mostly useless without a big nuclear warhead. Now the joke about the squib nuke test the Pakis popped a few years ago was they messed up the test because they misread the instructions because they were all in Chinese.
the chain of events is like this, the Saudis brought the money, the Pakis brought their sad sack soverign country and a justified fear of the Indian Smiling Buddah test in 1974, and the Chinese brought their Soviet designed nukes. A little research will show that there is already an agreement with Pakistan and the Saudi Royals to deliver warheads when the situation warrants. I see no reason to suspect that there are not already Chinese/Paki warheads sitting in bunkers in the Arabian peninsula.

We used to have a lot of that kind of lightening in Iowa and Minnesota. It's not at all unusual and rather interesting and pretty. It was called heat lightening...sometimes preceded a storm, sometimes just on it's own. It is lightening reflecting a dramatic or quick change in temperature or some other atmospheric condition. If a storm does follow, it is usually on the mild side.

Now that I live in Jerusalem i rarely see lightening...enough heavenly activity here on another level so it's not necessary :)

There was an incredible lightening storm back in, if I recall right, 2008. The sky was filled with the a blue lightening, a completely different type the we often see. Even some rabbi's had commented on it, indicating that the Mashiach was actually in Jerusalem at that moment of time. Is this the case of the time between revealled (in our day), concealled, and then finally revealled in our day? Are the rabbi's withholding information from the general public? I certainly believe this is the case. As the Baal Shem Tov stated, "The rabbi's will hinder the geulah".

The Sinai desert is full of people of all types, full of missiles and ammunition - in the gray and black markets there is no law and order. Morsi did not guard enough in the Sinai desert over the passage of ammunition and weapons by way of the tunnels to Hamas. He caught like 5% and 95% entered into Gaza and to Hamas.

The Master of the World is fighting with great care, with tweezers, to purify and guard over the Holy Land of Israel - the State of the Jews. Seven billion people in the world against the State of Israel - the smallest place in the world that enlivens the world and is the source of blessing for the world - and the world is ungrateful. The Creator of the World protects and guards over the State of Israel like the sky, and Woe! to every country, land, president or prime minister who will go against the State of Israel. Within a very short time, they will encounter difficulties with their people and their people will encounter difficulties with their people, just like Syria, Turkey and Egypt. The Creator of the World is going to scrape off all the impurity and the hard shell from upon the planet and renew the world to purity and holiness - because the time has arrived! From the time of the sin of Adam and Eve - the time has arrived for the repair of the end of the world!

Shiloh: The Litwak Rabbis and the Rebbe of Gur (Sheivet Dan) already delayed the Geulah in 2005 (5765) by enabling the Disengagement when a simple test in common decency was failed miserably. Because the merit now is our suffering throughout history and the 6 million who perished starting about 72 years ago, there is no way to delay the Geulah by such raunchy selfish behavior again. Short delays by an intense outburst of Sinat Chinam (which has been very evident since the elections) may delay the Geulah by a few months, but not by a full Shmittah cycle. The year of reckoning for the wicked in the world and even amongst our own people (our modern version of Kapos) will be the last year of this Shmittah cycle, 5775. The Gafnis and Litzmans who enabled the Disengagement and still lead that unrepentant political party today will be like chaff in the wind. I feel for Rav Me'ir Porush and even MK Eichler, but they don't call the shots in UTJ. If I were a resident of Yerushalayim proper, which I am not, I would have voted for Meir Porush for Mayor. At this time it is not enough to simply say, "I was wrong about Gush Katif." One must be active in kiruv for their shmadded children and putting them in homes equivalent from what was taken from them, The criminals of 2005 and those who voted for continued criminality since 2005 need to take an active role in rehabilitating the families that they destroyed.

Someone asked about Eliyahu haNavi. The Talmud is clear. Eliyahu HaNavi will make his appearance in the 6th year of the final Shmittah cycle, the year of Kolot (Voices). The Voices are Kol mevaser, mevaser ve'Omer x 3. This means that, G-d willing Eliyahu HaNavi will show up most likely before Pesach some time in 5774.

They attacked Rav Druckman, Shlita. Rav Druckman is not my Rav, but the man is a tremendous tzaddik. Right now the night before Tisha B'Av, I really don't want to say any more about this.

Sources close to Rabbi Shalom Cohen said on Sunday that when he spoke of knitted kippot wearers as “Amalek,” he did not mean to disparage all religious Zionists, but only the leadership of the Bayit Yehudi party.
"The words that were spoken last night in a lesson at the study hall of Maran [Rabbi Ovadia Yosef] were spoken in great pain and were only intended toward the leaders of the Bayit Yehudi and their supporters, who have declared war upon the world of Torah and yeshivot,” the sources said.

I decided to let this play out. I can't begin to guess what is really going on within Shas which is causing some of its members to self-destruct like this. For instance, I don't blame Eli Yishai for what Rabbi Shalom Cohen said.

I think that there is a deep form of Providence taking place here. Shas supported Oslo, or at least was ambivalent to its passage and the Wye Plantation Accords. Yet, Shas did not support the 2005 Disengagement when Eli Yishai was in control of the party. So now providentially, Aryeh Deri is back in charge, and he was in charge of Shas when Oslo was passed and signed. Putting Deri back in charge of Shas was a profound error which is allowing Divine Providence to take its toll on Shas for sins from the 1990s before Deri went to prison. Theoretically none of this would be happening if Eli Yishai still held his position as party head. It seems that all those who have NOT repented of making idiotic concessions for piece in exchange for yeshivah money are making statements that hang themselves. I am not sure of Rav Shalom Cohen's views on this perpetual weakness in emunah and bitachon supporting suicidal withdrawals for money, but events like this below are not helping Shas's "reputation" in Shamayim.

Shas Now Supports Geneva Initiative

It is as if the universe is not working by the old rules where those who put the lives of others at risk for money are going to get away with it anymore. This is not a statement about each individual within Shas, but a lot of these horrendous statements have "come to light" since Aryeh Deri took over his old position.

So since we are talking about the 10 plagues, was the Egyptian society warned of the plagues during the exodus, or was it just pharaoh who was warned. If indeed it was just pharaoh, why was the rest of the citizens punished for his decisions? I live in America and love the Jews, I cannot leave my family, although I would love to move to Israel.

Correct, just from counting 266 days(38 weeks) from the 15th of Kislev when Palestine was established by 138 UN Countries, one reaches the 16th of Elul. correct. Jewish End of Days made two points

1. Two of the names for Mashiach are Menachem and Tzemach both with gematriah of 138.

2. The number against was only 9 including Israel which is not even a quorum of ten righteous nations. I simply point this out. What happens, who knows? the year 73 quote in the Zohar does make it clear that it comes after years 5766 1/2 and 5772 1/2, meaning that the year 73 could easily be counted from Rosh Chodesh Nisan 5773 and not Rosh HaShana 5773. This was especially the case in the year 66 when the South Lebanon War which bombed the Galil into oblivion was in the 2nd half of that year and ended the unilateral Disengagement movement. What will exactly happen is hard to know, and the conference in Rome is not yet being planned. The events that would lead to such a conference are impossible to predict since most of what continues to happen often suddenly is usually a pelah which takes everyone by surprise. Scandalpalooza in the Obama Admin. and the entire Snowden affair are cases in point. And who could have predicted the counter-revolution in Egypt against the Muslim Brotherhood? Just have faith that there will be an event which leads to both a world war in which NATO is involved in Syria and a conference in Rome or Washington DC. The twists and turns to get there cannot be predicted.

Get right with G-d now. Looking at the disintegration of Shas displays two major lacks of emunah

1. The entire draft law discussion is about something that will not be implemented until 2017. Why start cursing people about a draft that will not be implemented for at least 3 1/2 years? Are people that blind that they can't see that Mashiach will already be here before 2016? Does one really think that these draft laws will be implemented as is?

2. The funny thing is that Naftali Bennett has been cursed and brow-beaten by a whole slew of people, and not once has he responded back with hatred of his own. One has to look at his capacity to take hatred and to respond with love with awe.

I find the attachment of "senior leaders" in Shas to a far left initiative, Geneiva Initiative, from a decade ago to be more than troubling. The Geneva Initiative is a form of mental illness. It is only attractive to either the spiritually weak and suicidal idiots. You might think that there is a relationship to this mental illness called the Geneiva Initiative to the irrational reaction to the draft?? Of course there is a relationship. Only the mentally ill and unfit would even countenance such spiritually blind idiocy. And it leads to making spiritually blind statements about other Jews who have not shown hatred for them. Mental illness requires tipul. Time to seek tipul (psychiatric care) for this 20 year old venture into national suicide.

1. The stateless Arabs want to kill us. They teach it diligently to their children, and if you venture into their neighborhoods, they test out their hate on you as target practice. What is the objective of talking to people who think that you are an ape or a pig? Do you expect to survive the venture? Or do you send others to the frontlines to be stoned for you so that you can passively sit in your yeshivah and learn? Really? Or are homes in the Gaza belt worth much money these days? Is Selling out your fellow Jew for your safety a sane and morally healthy reaction to evil?

2. Your country of Jews is in area the size of New Jersey including Yesha, but it is shaped like a stringbean with the width between the beach in Netanya and the Jordan River being about 40 miles?? You think that you can artfully parse out the stringbean to our enemies who still think you are an ape and a pig. Will that buy you a week of safety from the rabid wolf? Will it buy you safety for even one day?

So much for the Shas exploration of the Geneivah Initiative. It seriously represents a severe form of psychotic behavior that needs immediate treatment. Please seek out the proper psychiatric professional now so that the rest of us can live with fewer kooks walking the streets. We will all live a lot longer with fewer people losing appendages to cafe bombers. Inspect the "separation barrier" all you want. Build your house right next to the barrier, and depend on your own personal prayers that the latest fruitcake who thinks that you are an ape or a pig does not throw a Molotov cocktail over the wall.

Have a meaningful fast.

If you find this troubling that I look at all this appeasement as an Axis I psychotic disorder, answer this question. Which is worse? to be innocent by reason of insanity or to be an accomplice to murder by supporting withdrawals so that others in border areas get hit while you remain high and dry? Is it worse to call someone insane or someone who is an accomplice to murder at the level of shogeig karov lemeizid? I think calling someone psychotic is less problematic and insulting than calling them guilty of voluntary manslaughter. So in this case getting right with G-d involves finding the proper treating psychiatrist. Good night.

We became accustomed to Socialist and even Bolshevick apparatchiks being the ones to support Torah here in EY and not the individuals who have the wherewithal to do the mitzvah. We are in transition now toward a freer society without the Socialist fossils in the bureaucracy and without the gobs of money coming from America. The transition seems difficult, but it can be accomplished within four years or in less than four years which seems to be the time frame.

Depending on Socialist apparatchiks here for funding for Torah institutions simply empowers the Erev Rav who are the ones to dispense the money at their discretion. This is part of the lunacy here that must come to an end. The Erev Rav then rewards the more docile yeshivot that play in accordance to their rules. For instance, I know of several yeshivot and seminaries that made in their policy during the Olmert regime to forbid their students from traveling over the Green Line for Shabbat with those who live over the Green Line. The "excuse" that it was done for safety is totally ridiculous. The ten minute bus ride from Pisgat Ze'ev to Kochav Yakov is not wrought with dangers. But we actually knew some girls who went to seminary in Yerushalayim whose seminary refused them permission to come spend Shabbat with us. Lunacy controlled by Edom through its emissary TRMLO (Olmert) is the type of thing that makes one wonder which inmate is running the asylum on any particular day here.

Concerning US money in general and concerning Obama especially - The Jewish Response.

President Obama's Favor
8, June 2009

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, Ateret Yerushalayim

President Obama has truly done us a great favor, despite what many think, because when people give us trouble, it unites us. The Nation which dwells in the Land is not panicked by threats and dictates. There is obviously a dispute within the Nation of Israel whether to evacuate settlements but when a demand comes from Obama it infuriates many Jews. They say: "This is an inner dispute between us. He is going to tell us what to do?! Furthermore, he doesn't want us to expand existing houses to allow for natural growth. Where should we put our children? – outside in boxes!" The Nation of Israel is therefore strengthened, and he is in fact doing us a big favor.

This obviously does not mean that we do not take into account what the Americans say. But we need to understand: we need them and they need us. Do not think that the Americans help us because of loving-kindness. Everything is based on cost-benefit analysis. They give aid to where it will benefit them. They give us military help because they profit from it. There was once the "Rogers’ Plan" – it is always the same plan to expel us from parts of Eretz Yisrael but they change the name. Rogers said to Prime Minister Golda Meir: If you do not accept the plan, we will not provide you with weapons. Mrs. Golda Meir replied: We will live and see. In the end, they provided weapons. We do not need to panic. They need us just as we need them.

Regarding the money which we receive from the Americans, this is truly a shame and embarrassment which cannot be describe. Have we become beggars? Being a beggar is shameful when it is an individual and all-the-more-so when it is a nation. Why does an American need to provide me with a livelihood? We are an extremely wealthy Nation – the fifteenth wealthiest Nation in the world. We receive a few billion which is a negligible part of our budget. After the establishment of the State we did not have any money to buy weapons and to develop means to provide jobs – it wasn't good then – but I understand why we took money. But now, taking money from America is an illness. This is similar to the people who collect money at the Kotel and they are extremely wealthy. They continue to beg for money there because it is a sickness. There was once a beggar there and his brother said to him: "Stop. I will give you money to establish a business." The beggar said: "Do not judge your fellow until you walk in his shoes. Come to ask for Tzedakah with me at the Kotel and then we will talk." The brother put on rags and stood at the Kotel all day with his brother asking for Tzedakah. The beggar said: "We leave at five." At five o'clock, the beggar said: "It's five, let's go." At that exact moment, wealthy tourists were coming. The normal brother said: "After them." The beggar said to his brother: "You see. One day of collecting Tzedakah and you are already addicted." It is a sickness! And now this sickness has become a national sickness, so that we are asking the Americans for a small percentage of our budget. This is a desecration of Hashem's Name. We should be doing the exact opposite: calculating how much we have received from the Americans and tell them that we are so grateful for their financial aid and we will pay it back little-by-little.

Some people think that if the Americans pressure we have to bow to the pressure. This is incorrect. Since the American see that we are willing to bow to the pressure, they exert pressure. This is a known saying: One who makes himself into a sheep, the wolf will eat him. We must say to the American that we do not interfere in their matters and please do not interfere in ours. We are ready to take advice and to discuss, but please do not dictate to us.

In conclusion: a true story. A President of the US once said: You Jews must stop dreaming of the whole Land of Israel. Two Rabbis wrote him: Honorable President, we are accustomed to you, the Americans, interfering in our affairs and giving us advice all of the time as to what we should do. But it is a huge innovation for you to interfere as to what we should dream.

Therefore, we are informing you that we began to dream about returning to the Land of Israel and building the Land, "When Hashem will bring the exiles back to Zion, we will be like dreamers" (Tehillim 126:1), before your country existed. And now – Baruch Hashem – our dream is beginning to come to fruition. Therefore, we will certainly take into consideration what you say but we are not afraid of all sorts of pressure.

Because of the intensity of the Sinat Chinam this year before and mostly after the elections, the Geulah is not based so much on our suffering of the 7th Churban called the Shoah, but on the actual death toll. So let us look at that as an estimate of the effect 72 years after each year of the Shoah.

Approx. death toll from each year of the Shoah:

1. 5700: 100,000 to 150,000 Jews
2. 5701: 400,000 Jews from starvation and disease in the various ghettos and the forced labor camps
3: 5702: 900,000 Jews from the gasoline vans and the beginning of the implementation of the Final Solution
4. 5703: 1.8 million Jews
5. 5704: 1.8 million Jews
6. 5705: 1 million Jews

The total is slightly over 6 million dead Jews. If someone has the exact year by year distribution, please let me know.

So by Rosh HaShana this coming year 5774, HaShem will be taking into account the deaths of over one half million Jews. The Geulah process should exponentially increase over the next several months. One of the key details is that when over 60,000 missiles start raining down on the "merkaz" per hour from the north, that only the homes of those who voted to throw others out of their home lose their homes (minus those who have done a full teshuvah for this). For that level of miraculous merit, the slight delay is necessary because of the incredible amount of Sinat Chinam this year that seems to be reaching new heights.

Perhaps it can be worked out that those who will be drafted can start teaching secular Israeli soldiers Kri'at Shma. I had not heard that the "draft" was beginning next month. When did this change occur?

Member of Knesset Eli Yishai (Shas) responded, Tuesday, to a report about the European Union banning funding and other cooperation with Jewish entities beyond the 1949 cease-fire line by saying, "It is regrettable that the Europeans continue their one-sided behavior while taking illegitimate actions. Their position is important, but more important are the opinions and beliefs of the citizens of the country and the duty of the state to ensure their safety and protection."

The former interior minister noted, "Because of embargo in the past, the Israel Military Industries were established - an inexhaustible source of national pride. One can only guess what will develop in Israel following the current ban."

"We will not see national reconciliation unless it's on the basis of the ending of the military coup," Mohamed El-Beltagi, a senior figure in the Islamist movement, told reporters.

A spokesman for Egypt's interim president had said earlier that authorities expected Islamist movements to join in national reconciliation, including the Muslim Brotherhood whose Mohamed Morsi was toppled as president by the army on July 3

We can say about Xtianity that whatever they say is new is not true, but whatever they say is true in not new. Here is a case of the latter. It is brought down by Chazal, that the last money of Edom will be the currency of the Ayin Ra. Some would say that that currency is the dollar because dollar has the same Gematriah as Amalek. Fair enough, but not quite correct. Chazal take special note that Avraham purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs/ Matriarhs for 400 shekel, and that Esav approached Ya'akov with an army of 400 Centurions. The number 400 is the Gematriah of Ayin Ra. It is also the Gematriah of the last letter of the Aleph Bet called the Tav. Tav in Hebrew means "mark" as in Deutschmark. This would be rather tame if we did not have a Gemorah that there are 300 princes in Germany and 365 Principle Saints of the Roman Catholic Church in Rome. And whenever there is an alliance between a united Germany and the Pope, Amalek takes over and will try to destroy the world. So it happened in WW2 where the first treaty that Hitler signed was his Concordat with the Vatican. Now add up the princes. 300 plus 365 = 665 princes altogether. So where was Hitler from? He was NOT from Germany. He was from Oesterreich (Austria). So the 666th prince came from Austria but only after a united Germany formed an alliance with Rome (the Roman Church referred to in the Gemorrah). Then came the Anschluss with Austria, and Amalek tried to take over the world. Continued...

So in WW2 the attempt to take over the world was with brute force, and Jews died with their lives by the millions. Yet, in this final showdown it is through money that Amalek seeks to take over the world, not by force of weapons or even gas chambers. So we now have the EU and the Euro. The etymological root of Europe is not Aleph Vav Reish Vav Peh Hey. Europah should be spelled with an Ayin since the root of the word from which the continent got its name is Aravah (toward the evening). That is those who left the Tower of Bavel headed toward the evening as they marched or migrated into Europe. The ones who went toward the rising sun went Aishah, toward the fireball in the sky. From this we see that while Asia should be spelled with an Aleph, Europah should be spelled with an Ayin. So look at the name of the currency that unites Germany, Italy, the Vatican, and even Austria. It is the Euro spelled with an Ayin gives us the acronym Ayin-Reish, the same acronym for Ayin Ra, the currency of Amalek at the End of Days. So no surprises here. They will now try to divide Yerushalayim with the force of money not the force of arms.

Says HaRav Nir Ben Artzi:

The economy in America will not recover, and all is happening gradually so there will be no panic in the world.

The Creator is using the forces of nature to disassemble materialism and evil in the world. The Holy One is destroying the world’s economy, everywhere except in the holy Eretz Yisrael.

The European economy will continue to collapse like a bottomless pit.
There is no solution, the situation will get worse and America will crash, falling and plunging deeper and deeper.

The economy in the Americas – North and South America as well as Canada, will fade with no hope for revival, with the same in Russia, China and Europe. There will be a world economic collapse

The world economy continues to fall and crash. In Europe, North and South America, Russia and China and other nations in the world, collapse with continue.

From your pen to G-d's ears Me'ir even if the derekh hateva trajectory is for this to happen in stages and to conclude as the greatest wealth extinction of all time at the end of this Shmittah cycle (Elul 5775). Perhaps it will be sped up, but that depends upon a bunch of factors like world war. rioting in the streets. stuff like that. And the collapse should be accompanied by an event that brings about a Volcanic eruption on Mt. ESAV (Mt. vESUVius) overlooking the Bay of Naples. It was the Vesuvius volcanic uplift that brought Western Italy out of the Mediterranean to begin with to allow for the founding of the City of Rome.

Well the Left Coast Judenrat is petitioning the Supreme Garbage Pail called a Court by some in order to remove the Rav of Mashiach ben Ephraim from being a candidate for Sephardic Chief Rabbi. The Rav in question is of course Rav of Tzfat Rav Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita who has replaced his father as the Rav for Mashiach ben Ephraim. Good show Judenrat. Happy Tisha B'Av to ya.

The Midrash tells us that when an historic sin was committed by a Jewish ruler the angel Gavriel stuck a reed into the Mediterranean Sea, and around that reed arose a sandbar, and from there grew Rome.

Isn't the economic viability of a country based on its export/import relationship with other countries?

Can one country by itself keep its economy functioning and robust via its own citizens? Workers earning, buying, enabling production from its own resources (farming, building and factories) in a self fulfilling cyclical lifestyle?

Not sure I've described it correctly. But if the economies of the world go flat, how can Israel's economic health remain vibrant and functioning? I believe it will, just don't know how.

This is a comment from a previous thread, but I found it fascinating. I found this reference in the Tisha B'Av book by Artscroll on pg 149 reading last night:
In Jerusalem, Hadrian founded a city in the place of the one razed to the ground, and named it Aelia Capitolina [...Capitolina in honor of Jupiter, whose temple in Rome was on Capitolene Hill).
The reference should be obvious and just one more that equates Washington, DC with Rome - Capitol Hill itself was also in Rome! Only what stood on it was a pagan temple. Food for thought.

Thank you EmunaGal. Very interesting, and what makes it more interesting is that when Francis Pope renamed his farm Rome, Maryland (Maryland as a Roman Catholic colony) and Goose Creek to Tiber Creek, he had no idea that The US Capitol would one day sit on a portion of his property.

Fast has ended here. I am sorry that that the American readers have to hear that. It is now the tenth of Av even though we are really one day early all year and today would have been Tisha B'Av in ancient times after spotting the moon for Av. Av is really Menachem Av. Menachem is one of the names for Mashiach. Be consoled Oh Israel.

Neshama: AG. Weinstein is a purely evil dude. He will use every legal means possible at his disposal to prevent the removal of Erev Rav oppression on Eretz Yisrael. And I agree that many statements being made by some in Shas are not out of hatred too. They are really afraid about the draft and about losing control on various Rabbinical institutions. Thanks for pointing that out.

CDG, Yerushalayim:

Sorry to burst your bubble, Reb Dov - but even if Zimmerman isn't a Jew, enough people seem to think he is one (even tho only his father is cited) to make a lot of trouble for him. For one, the new Black Panthers:

George Zimmerman Case: It's always the Jew's fault.

h/t to Esser Agaroth (I'm not going to U-Tube for that!). A funny thing about the speaker: A black guy with a Russian/Arabic name. Wonder if anyone would call him a secret Jew for that.

Plus the Drudge report earlier cited refers to trouble for his family as well.

Fortunately the weather in Yerushalayim is cooling off after the 9 Days!

Zimmerman means Room Man as opposed to Rain Man in German, and all of a sudden he is a Jew?? On another website, some anti-Semite was trying to prove to me how Jews can be Bolshevicks and fiendish Capitalists at the same time.

The greatest hatred in world history knows no logical bounds. It is what it is, a halakhah of Torah miSinai where we were given the mission of converting the world to decency lishma, for its own sake, as G-d defines human decency. It is our national mission to at least influence the world in that direction. It is what ultimately brings World Peace with the Bnai Sheith being dragged kicking and screaming all the way.

It would seem that one should be able to choose between two different tests for "b'chol me'odecha", as the Mishna brings two interpretations. The 2nd one being - "Whatever measure He metes out to you, good or bad, you must thank Him very very much"

As far as your economic question, Neshama, on the surface you make a good point. But if Israeli exporters find fewer and fewer buyers because their products were made in East Jerusalem or the Golan, do you think that the Creator of the Universe will give a darn if He triggers the greatest global Depression in human history?? I think that this point is crucial.

The true Amalekim in the EU who want to take over the world economically (with the economic unity of Germany, the Vatican, and Austria) are willing to self-destruct to cause us harm. Also my sense is that HaShem already has the replacement for the global economic structure already in place.

Kerry urges Israel to 'look hard' at Arab peace initiative
LAST UPDATED: 07/17/2013

AMMAN - US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Israel on Thursday to consider carefully a 2002 Arab League peace initiative that it rejected in the past.

"Israel needs to look hard at this initiative, which promises Israel peace with 22 Arab nations and 35 Muslim nations - a total of 57 nations that are standing and waiting for the possibility of making peace with Israel," he said in Amman, where he met officials from Arab League member countries.

The plan, put forward by Saudi Arabia at an Arab League summit in Beirut in 2002, offered full recognition of Israel but only if it gave up all land seized in the 1967 Middle East war and agreed to a "just solution" for Palestinian refugees. Softening the plan three months ago, a top Qatari official raised the possibility of land swaps in setting future Israeli-Palestinian borders.

Just one salient point at our busy time: If the Feiglin list of Likud MKs and Bayit Yehudi undermine Kerry and the EU's push to divide Yerushalayim by rejecting any talks with Abbas with final borders already determined along with Samantha Power as the new US UN Ambassador, we could have a full court press to divide Yerushalayim by the middle of Elul, which will be at the end of the nine months from the UN vote for Palestine. The UN vote was on the 15th of Kislev. Nine months later is the 16th of Elul. Ok back to business.

The EU declares the Golan is not ours, so the rebels move in to an empty (israeli) army base and declare first Syria then we head south ... To Israel!

Your end of 9mos scenario sounds very plausible. We shall see.

IMHO I think Obama is behind the EU enactment "timing" to use it as a leverage (umm, blackmail) neged Netanyahu. And to the 'borders' or 'Iran' issue:
Bibi can throw a monkey wrench into Obama's lap by enacting sovereignty over E1 and those verboten EU areas! Let them come and take it away from us!!
Then we welcome Moshiach

Correct Neshama. This is all being coordinated with the Reprobate President of the US. Until the EU declared the Golan and East Jerusalem occupied territory on Tisha B'Av, verboten to Jews or Judenrein, I could not see how this could quickly reach a climax in the middle of Elul this year. Events are moving at lightning speed. Samantha Power will be confirmed in a snap, and events will move even faster. So now we are talking weeks, not months.

Rosh HaShana 5774 will be a magic moment. It is exactly 72 years after the year in which the Final Solution was decreed....from Alot HaShachar to sunrise (72 minutes). And the Blitzkrieg of Poland began on the 17th of Elul, 5699, the official beginning of the Shoah. I am sure that this is all being timed like a Swiss watch now.

There is a dispute in Me'Am Loez if the wrestling match between Ya'akov and the Angel of Esav took place on Tisha B'Av or on Yom Kippur. The wrestling match ended with Ya'akov's thigh vein being displaced at Alot HaShachar. He limped until sunrise when he was healed by the Face of G-d.

7/17/2013 11:47 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Me'Am Lo'ez indicates that the 365 sinews and veins in the human body correspond with one day of the solar calendar year and with one of the 365 negative commandments. The Gid HaNashe corresponds with Rechilut (tale-bearing) and Tisha B'Av in the year of the wrestling match.

Yet, the next morning was Yom Kippur when Ya'akove met his brother Esav. Esav was like a goat that went to Mt. Se'ir (Mt. of the Goat or the way of Azazel), and Ya'akov went on to Sukkot. Yet, the conflicting explanations can only be explained this year. We saw all the lashon hara before Tisha B'Av or talebearing. And a full healing should follow by Yom Kippur??? I guess we will have to wait and see.
