Sneak Preview: We Are All Tzo'ar: The 52nd year of Accountability for Our Sins

Bibi is Melekh Bela (King of Bela), the only one of the five cities of the plain whose king is NOT named in the four kings against the five kings in Parshat Lech Lecha. It screams out for an explanation. Bela also happened to be the same name as the son of Binyamin ben Ya'akov, and Bela, the city, was renamed Tzo'ar. It was not destroyed when S'dom was destroyed because it only had 51 years of accountability for its sins (See Rashi).  So it was one year younger (tza'ir) than the other four cities of the plain. So think that Bibi (Binyamin) is not only Melekh Bela but Av Bela. The other cities had a full 52 years of accountability for its sins. Bibi is now 64 years old. The first 13 years of his life he was NOT accountable for his sins. So this entire year until the 28th of Tishrei 5775, he is like Bela with only 51 years of accountability for its sins. As with the 4 kings against the 5 kings, Tidal Melekh Goyim (Obama) and Chedarla'omer Melekh Eilam (Iran or Persia) will likely be attacking us in the 14th year since we became enslaved by the world during the Al Aksa Intifada...if they indeed come this Pesach.  See here.   

But while their attack may destroy most of the rest of the world (that is those who attack us), we will Tzo'ar did. This is the last thing that Moshe Rabbeinu saw at the end of his life after he saw the evacuation from Kiryat Dekalya (Newe' Dekalim) aka the City of Date Palms and then he saw Tzo'ar (Deut. 34:3 along with the Targum Yonatan ben Uziel). Bibi was born at the close of the War of Independence. During that war we accrued NO sins as opposed to what the entire world thinks. We only started sinning against each other from the year that the war was over starting in 5710 (Fall of 1949), just like Bibi himself who was born near the end of Tishrei 5710 and as pointed out above is now 64 years old. Cutting off the peyot of Teimani Jews descending from their aircraft qualifies as disgusting behavior for instance. For the first 13 years we were not accountable through 5722 (Fall of 1962). We were then accountable for the next 51 years like Tzoar. Only in this year before we are accountable for a full 52 years are we comparable to Tzo'ar through Sukkot of 5775. This argues strongly for an attempt to divide Yerushalayim this year.

We are all Tzo'ar. The post, bli neder, will be written soon.

Bela was also the first King of Edom. Obama is the last king of Edom. See previous post about that. It is exactly the previous verse to the one about Bela where one finds the name Obama in VaEila HaMelachim Asher Malkhu BeEretz Edom (and These are the kings that ruled in the land of Edom.... Vav Hey Aleph Mem Bet Aleph. Rearrange the letters and you get Obama. It is no coincidence that these two verses are adjoining and adjacent verses.

Yes, all this is true, but Bela is the name of the city of Tzo'ar. So the king of Bela would more likely be Binyamin who really was the father of Bela spelled the same way as the name of the city and the name of the first king of Edom.

Yet, the fact that the first king of Edom is named Bela, and the verse telling us who he is is found adjacent to the reference to the last king of Edom, Obama is very striking.

This is more striking because in reality the four kings are the four empires. According to the Gemorrah in Avodah Zarah, only two of those empires that conquered Eretz Yisrael completely are around for the End of Days (Edom and Persia). Yawan (Greece) is subsumed into Rome. And Bavel is completely destroyed. Gog W. ben Gog Bush did us that favor.

So all that is left is Edom in its most decrepit state and Persia (Eilam). Amraphel Melekh Shinar (Bavel) and Arioch king of Ellasar (Cyprus: part of Greece) are both gone. So all we have left are Tidal Melekh Goyim (Obama) and ChedarleOmer Melekh Eilam (Ayatollah Ali Khamenei)

The Torah is specifically silent on who the King of Bela is while mentioning the other four kings out of the five kings of the cities of the plain. It is there in order to direct our attention to other times Bela is mentioned in the Torah to unlock a puzzle about the End of Days. As mentioned in the post, Binyamin is the father of Bela, his firstborn son and as mentioned in the comments, Bela was also the first king of Edom adjacent to the verse that tells us by its acronym who is the last king of Edom.

We also know from the juxtaposition of these verses in VaYishlach that when there were kings in Edom there were no kings in Israel, and that one always ruled over the other. When Yerushalayim is up, then Rome (Caesaria) is down and vice versa.

From my upstairs porch I have a great view of Geva Binyamin. Yet they are ashamed of the ignominious past of their village with regard to the pilegesh. So the residents call it Adam.

Binyamin of course was also the younger brother of Yosef, another reference to Tzo'ar. In many ways Binyamin Netanyahu has also played second fiddle to his elder brother, Yonatan the hero. He never measured up to the greatness of his fallen brother.

I should point out that Bela is spelled with a final Ayin so that the "a" in Bela is really a(ng) where the ng is almost silent but there. We see this in the word wrong which comes from Ra in Hebrew where the final a is an ayin so it should be pronounced a(ng) from which we get wrong. At the beginning of a word Ayin is often confused with G. So from Aza we get Gaza, from Amorah we get Gomorrah etc. etc.

I feel certain that the PLO/PLA/Hamas/Hizbullah et al [a/k/a pick a Nazi] folks certainly will cease and desist from any and all attacks on Jews during the "Peace Treaty" signing celebrations. They wouldn't dare to even try it, because if they were to do so voices from on high within the Israeli Government would shout that "No isolated incidents of simple criminal violence will be allowed to stop the creation of a "Just and Lasting Peace in the Middle East!" And besides, heavily armed U.S.and NATO/UN Troops by the tens of thousands will swarm into Jerusalem from within Israel to "secure" the "legitimate rights of the Fakistinian Peoples!" This is of utmost importance, because otherwise the "illegal settlers and illegitimate occupiers" might try and pursue through UN Troop Lines those "downtrodden and repressed indigenous peoples" just for daring to struggle and resist" "colonial oppression". The Peace Treaty will never again allow "the Rothschild interests" to cross over into sovereign Liberated Territory to stop the hundreds of daily machine gun, grenade, and suicide bomber attacks on Jews which will occur every time "Resistance fighers" receive "a nod and a wink" to slip through the lines of the blue helmets. Why, for Israelis to even think about taking retaliatory action against "International Forces" would embarrass the American Jewish population and make them look BAD. Very BAD! Of course, I'm just being a bit sarcastic and negative in in my opinion. Everyone knows such happenings and events could never take place in the real world. Obama wouldn't allow it. Neither would the EU or UN Security Council. I wonder how many doves the Pope will release into the skies of Jerusalem as the ink dries?

What about the coming blood moons. This coming Pesach will be a blood red moon on April 15. Then one on Sukkot on Oct 8 2014. Even next year in 2015 there will be another blood red moon on April 4, 2015. Then again on Sukkot Sept 28, 2015. Added to this mix is a total solar eclipse on the first of Nissan, March 20,2015. Along with a partial eclipse on Rosh haShana on Sept 13, 2015. Now what is interesting in recent history when this combination of blood red moons appeared, significant events took place 1493/94 and the expulsion of Jews from Spain. In 1949/50 right after the founding of the State of Israel. Then 1967/68 to do with the Six Day War. Interesting!

Dov, your posts are considered Torah, ashreicha.

Going back to the cosmic role Bibi plays in the redemption, as well as the geopolitical processes fulfilling the God Umagog wars of the end of days, etc:

Many times certain souls become impregnated with an aspect of a high or root soul, or a concept in Torah (which is Elokut, just like a Soul). In this case, Bibi plays a role, his soul in body a microcosm for a larger reality - in this case the state of Israel's birth and wayward adolescence.

Jonathan Pollars, like Bibi and many other personalities in history, are connected to the lights of Moshiach ben Yosef.

To sweeten with the mystical dimension of events, in this blog we are watching for the redemption, or more literally we are watching the redemption unfold. We have watched the Zohar timelines and are making note of how world events are clearly playing out the process of redemption.

However, it is in the mystical dimension we must look for us to internalize the redemption, becoming redeemed (sorry for the term used often by Xtians but is a fundamental aspect of receiving internally the lights of Moshiach).

The whole reason Moshiach is coming through a process is because Moshiach coming is synonymous with the open revelation of G-d's Glory. At that point G-dly wisdom will be the most valued, and hence Israel, the guardians of G-d's Wisdom, the most valued on the planet.

We know all the timelines, the process started immediately at the Churban HaBaiyt, we had milestones in the days of Abulafia, the AriZal, the Baal Shem Tov, and the most critical years between 5750-5775.

One single Jew, by internalizing the lights of Moshiach, which is accomplished by meditating on the inner wisdom of the Torah until all the husks are nullified (called Avodat Yichudim), the ego is shattered, and our own G-dly self is revealed. This is called Teshuva. Any one of us is connected to Atzmut Ein Sof Boruch Hu always, and can immediately connect with the Reality, bringing redemption to the world.

In recent years, this has become possible for every man woman and child (specifically since 1991). Now, one by one we are discovering it within ourselves, while watching the world play out the results in the parallel time. The many sounds of the decleration of redemption, in-gathering of the exiles, the building of the 3rd Temple, as in the redemption of Ezra.

And then, in one critical moment, we transition to the open miraculous reality of the redemption, the Days of Moshiach ben Dovid, rising from the other dimension. This is the union of Beita and Achishena that my grandfather the Gra taught his disciples.

Had he met the Alter Rebbe, it would have been then. The Haskala movement yimach shmam, would have never been formed. Israel would have been One Nation under G-d, empowered with the deepest mysteries of the Torah, beatified with great wealth.

Cotin. Previous Comment:

But the Ribono Shel Olam's Thoughts were even higher, through centuries more of darkness and light. While chassidus was becoming revealed and garbed in volumes and volumes of teachings, bringing the Light of the Baal Shem Tov, the Light of Moshiach, into every single Jewish man woman or child. In the 7th generation to the Alter Rebbe, yarda Shechinah LeAretz. And the Internet was born, and the world changed.

20 years later came the Ketizim of the holy zohar, as one student of the Rebbe, a baal teshuva, internalized them. He is learning with other students, slowly people receiving the Besorat HaGeulah.

I don't want to get in to here, but when I say Besorat HaGeulah, I want to distinguish from what most people associate with Chabad Meshichistim. The Rebbe indeed declare that the work of birurim is complete, and in VaYera 5752 even said "Moshiach came and was revealed, but we still have to receive him", for 11 months the Rebbe explained with it means, and why it has to be done by "regular" people not Tzadikim. He said the secret is in the wellsprings of chassidus, and its about a person doing Teshuva as we said above. There is a lot of material to learn, but it becomes the essence of the student's Torah scholarship, performance of Mitzvot, and relationship with the Divine.

This is a real deceleration of redemption, made by the Moshiach of the generation. However, after the histalkut of Gimmel Tammuz, the work went into our hands, to learn, teach, apply in our lives, and receive these now available lights of Moshiach. 20+ years later, finally 1, 2, 3 people are succeeding in internalizing the redemption. And they turn to redeem their friends, until the entire congregation of Israel knows the mysteries, and hence the lie of the world falls as it had never truly existed.

We are watching this happen in front of our eyes, it's not our job to finish, and none of us are free from its toil, every day. To bring to the days of Moshiach.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

8th of Kislev was also the date last year when a bus blew up on Shaul HaMelekh Street in Tel Aviv on the 8th day of the Gaza War. Bibi offered up a Piece offering because he wanted to live by the world's rules of military engagement by not bombing apartment buildings at the Gaza border where on the top floor of those buildings were Hamas "soldiers" ready to fire RPGs at the ground forces if they invaded. So rather than being accused of Crimes Against Humanity by the nations of the world for bombing apartment buildings, Shaul surrendered on the 8th day of that war just like he did in Shmuel Aleph 13. That with Bibi was also on the 8th of Kislev. It majorly affected the Likud Primaries four and five days later where all the putrid leftists in Likud except for Tzachi HaNegbi were swept from office. Yes, the Primary lasted a 2nd day when the powers at be inside Likud did NOT like the results from Day One of those primaries.

First Cup of Blood. There are three more to go.

At the Seder the first red cup of wine stands for the Ten Plagues, the Yud in HaShem's Name. The 2nd cup of red wine is the Hey, the five times multiplier effect at the Reeds Sea. The 3rd Cup of wine is the Vav, the natural Messianic process that should've lead to Mashiach ben Yosef in 5766. (Don't get me started on why that did not happen. I need to sleep peacefully tonight.)

followed by Kos Eliyahu and the 4th cup of red wine the final Hey in HaShem's Name (another five times multiplier that has not yet occurred because it brings Mashiach ben David.) Kos Eliyahu comes before the 4rh cup because ben David cannot come unless Eliyahu shows up first to herald his coming.

The total value of Yud Key Vav Key is 26. Yet, here each prisoner release has 26 murderers. So each cup of red wine at this time is associated with the entire Name of HaShem with each kos. And in both cases the Ten Plagues or Yoel 3:3, the plagues begin with blood.

28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Fried With Fukushima Radiation

The Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center: Radiation levels at US radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated. This is particularly true along the west coast of the United States.

Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That means that the total amount of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.

Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin.”

For reasons yet unknown, the mainstream media are on lockdown concerning Fukushima, reminiscent of … the still unresolved birth-certificate issue.

Kerry: Israeli-Palestinian peace talks moving at 'increased intensity'

Haaretz: “The two parties have been engaged now in 13 meetings – serious meetings. They had three meetings in the last four days,” Kerry said. “All the core issues are on the table. And they have been meeting with increased intensity.”

Opinion: Let’s cut to the chase. The core issue is a Jew-free Palestinian state inside Israel. It is to include East Jerusalem, the location of the holiest site in Judaism, the Temple Mount. The deal is also about the ‘right of return’ of 13 million refugees that are refused citizenship (except on a limited basis in Jordan) in the Arab states that surround Israel. Pawns, in a deadly game of chess.

John Kerry should know that if his negotiating is successful, it will be in violation of the God of the Universe:

“In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.There I will put them on trial for what they did to My inheritance, My people Israel, because they scattered My people among the nations and divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2

Turkey Looking To Iran, Not U.S., For Friendship

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “A Turkish-Iranian alliance is a real danger. Erdogan’s Turkey, though a member of NATO, has quietly embarked on an Islamic cultural makeover that has alarming implications for U.S. policy in the region.

By reversing a nearly 100-year-old policy of secularism that began under Kemal Ataturk following the Ottoman Empire’s dissolution, Erdogan will inevitably lead his nation into conflict with America and Europe.

Erdogan calls Zionism a “crime against humanity,” and accuses Israel of genocide for responding to repeated terrorist attacks in the West Bank and Gaza. He also claims Israel was behind Egypt’s military coup. This puts Turkey at odds with U.S. policy, to put it mildly, and much closer to Iran.

Opinion: Once again, the secular world almost lines up with the prophetic, but misses on the result. Turkey (Gomer) will line up with Russia and Iran (Ezekiel 38:1-6), but the conflict is with Israel.

And then of course, maybe Turkey is NOT at odds with US/Obama policy but rather in line.

In any case, this is how the battle ends:

“For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. All the people of the land will bury them, and the day I display my glory will be a memorable day for them, declares the Sovereign Lord. People will be continually employed in cleansing the land. They will spread out across the land and, along with others, they will bury any bodies that are lying on the ground.” Ezekiel 39:12-14.

Iran Sanctions

Front Page Mag: “EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who led the six-power delegation that faced the Iranians, said that the talks were “the most detailed we have ever had, by a long way.”

The only problem with all these exciting developments is that all the “serious Iranian proposals” would result in the same outcome: a nuclear-armed Iran. There was nothing in the Iranian proposals that could give anyone any reason whatsoever to believe that Iran is serious about stopping its nuclear weapons development program. Indeed, the only thing we learned this week is that like the Allied powers in 1938, the Obama administration and the Europeans have no stomach for a confrontation and are willing to dress up appeasement of a dangerous foe as “peace” and “progress.”

Opinion: Debkfile reported that “Tehran stands to gain access to nearly $50 billion if the Obama administration decides to free up $12 billion of frozen Iranian assets in the US, inevitably followed by Europe’s release of another $35 billion. The White House was reported Friday, Oct. 18 to be weighing a proposal to offer Iran access to these funds “in installments” against “steps to cut down on its nuclear program.”

The Iranians are not willing to give up nuclear enrichment or the building of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Yet the EU, the US State Department, and the mainstream media, are tripping over themselves to remove the only deterrence to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. It is not hard to understand why. Without Bible prophecy, the future is a series of unfolding events with no rhyme or reason.

The Bible gives a clear view of Israel’s neighbors prior to the final wars. Psalm 83:4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

Those words were spoken an astounding 3000 years ago. The nations that the prophet Asaph said would form an alliance are the same nations that are in a tumult today. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Sinai, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza. The later are also the words of Rabbi Nir ben Artzi.

Fast forward 500 years later, the prophet Ezekiel writes of another war, with a new set of names. Obadiah 1:18 indicates that the Edomite Armies that Asaph listed above are destroyed. Ezekiel’s list is: Russia, Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Libya, Algeria and Tunisia.

How could a nation of 7 million people defend themselves against not one, but two armies of that magnitude?

“When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.” Deuteronomy 20:1

Turkey to Cancel Agreements with Mossad

The head of Turkish Intelligence, Hakan Fidan, is expected within the next few days to recommend to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to cancel a series of agreements that were in place with Israel's Mossad, according to a report in yesterday's Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak.

According to the report, permitting the Mossad to operate freely within Turkey's borders had brought a recent wave a negative publicity in the international press down on Fidan's head.

Saudi prince: Obama’s Syria policies “lamentable,” “perfidious”
DEBKAfile October 23, 2013, 8:22 AM (GMT+02:00)

In an exceptionally blunt remark, Saudi Prince Turki said Wednesday, ”The current charade of international control over Bashar's chemical arsenal would be funny if it were not so blatantly perfidious. And designed not only to give Mr. Obama an opportunity to back down (from military strikes), but also to help Assad to butcher his people." Turki, a member of the Saudi royal family and former director of intelligence, added: "The shift away from the U.S. is a major one. Saudi doesn't want to find itself any longer in a situation where it is dependent."

This message was also conveyed by Prince Bandar bin Sultan, current head of Saudi intelligence to European envoys summoned to Jeddah earlier this week. In Paris, US Secretary of State John Kerry invited Turki’s brother, Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, to lunch Tuesday to voice regret over Riyadh’s rejection of UN Security Council nonpermanent membership and call Saudi anger over over Washington’s Middle East policies on Syria and Iran..

Let's cut to the real chase: The core issue is a completely Jew-free Israel, lo aleynu, and a completely Jew-free world, again lo aleynu. Let's not kid ourselves: this is their first goal, before taking over the world.

Of course they won't succeed - this is HaShem's putting His hooks in their jaws to come here and try, so they can be punished in the worst way. But it won't be easy for us unless we completely buy into HaShem's plan, hang in here and do everything we can to ensure that our presence is kept. And keep the kibbutz galuyoth (ingathering of exiles) coming!

Too bad Barkat got in again as mayor (I didn't vote for him!), and apparently all the incumbents did. Nevertheless we must do the best we can and keep our connection with HKB"H.

Dr. Efraim Laor: Big Earthquake Not Imminent

Former Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Earthquake Preparedness, Dr. Efraim Laor, said that it would be of more value for citizens learn what to do and how to cope in the event of an earthquake, rather than “build” separate emergency systems to rely upon.

In an interview with Arutz Sheva, following the series of light tremors Israel has been experiencing over the past week, Dr. Laor said that the tremors were not necessarily an indication of the imminent appearance of a large quake on the horizon.

He likened the situation to that of a terrorist being caught didn’t guarantee there weren’t more terrorists out there. “It doesn’t matter that one was captured. The terrorists are still out there, and one never knows when they will hit,” he said.

Meir M, don't be disturbed by Internet forum radiation danger warnings, they simply are not true. All you need do is buy your own survey meter to ease your mind. They are cheap and worth the money as they will make you feel much better knowing that this is not something to worry about.
Most people have trouble understanding that radioactive stuff is one of the things the world is made of, we mine it and concentrate it but it is of the earth and ocean, and can be dissolved right back to the ocean where it is only detectable with the most precision scientific instruments. I hope this helps you understand the scale of the ocean simply shrugs off 300tons of contaminated water a day.
Also useful is that the longer lived a radioactive isotope is the safer it is, you could carry a lump of US Navy weapons grade plutonium in your shirt pocket it lasts so long(24,100 years half life). On the other hand there is danger from sufficient dose contact with a short lived isotope like Iodine 131(8 day half life), which concentrates itself in an unsaturated thyroid, is mostly decayed away three weeks after a nuclear explosion.
A half life is the time it takes half of any mass to decay into another element, say 50kg of Iodine 131 only 25 kg are left 8 days later, 12.5kg(or half again) at 16 days, 3.125 at 32 days, etc.

Abbas: Israel will be responsible for any failure of talks

YNet News: Palestinian President says if peace talks fail, Israel will be to blame, backs UN’s demand that Israel stop settlement construction.

“We will not accept that,” Abbas said in response to a question of the Baltic news agency BNS on any future Israeli military control of the borders of a demilitarized Palestinian state.

Opinion: If Mahmoud Abbas was not the financier of the Munich massacre and the deputy to Yasser Arafat, one of the most bloodthirsty murderers of the 20th century, his comments could be a comedy routine.

But he was, and they’re not. Mahmoud Abbas will not even accept Israel’s right to exist. Imagine anyone negotiating to own a piece of your backyard, while complaining to the local police that you had no right to be on the property that you own in the first place.

Mind numbing, isn’t it?

Mahmoud and his buddies are in deep trouble. Don’t believe it? Ezekiel 25:12-14 “Because Edom took revenge on Judah and became very guilty by doing so, therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will stretch out my hand against Edom and kill both man and beast. I will lay it waste, and from Teman to Dedan they will fall by the sword. I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger and my wrath; they will know my vengeance, declares the Sovereign Lord.”

Edom or Edomites are names for Esau and his descendants. In the 5th century BC, the Edomites were pushed out of Jordan by a tribe from Dedan (Saudi Arabia) and settled in southern Judah. Because of the preponderance of Edomites, the Romans named the area Idumea.

Judah at the time was empty of Jews who had been carried off to Babylon, so the fertile grasslands made a perfect home for Edomites.

Not coincidentally, Judea, or the West Bank is where Mahmoud Abbas has his headquarters. Watch out Mahmoud, you are on the wrong side of prophecy.

Netanyahu is a cowardly person under tremendous pressure. Of course I don't trust him, but he is dealing with his own internal political realities that someone like Sharon did not have to deal with. He literally has no party of his own if he does a stupid deal, the only type of deal that our enemies will accept. He will likely have to present it as a demand from Obama to the Israeli people. That is an argument for Obama waiting until after midterm Congressional elections to turn the screws. Yet, the US economy is collapsing at the same time now. This is a really weird time. The Eurotrash wants to send troops this Spring. Obama has a vested interest to wait until the Fall after the midterms. Another factor pushing for an earlier time, though, is that even Obama realizes that the Persians will have nukes within one year. So he needs to bully us now. As I said, really weird.

If "they" want to send troops to commandeer Israel, then it must be an act in response to resistance. No?

If Netanyahu caves, then where is the resistance and the response? If Netanyahu doesn't cave, but just does nothing (because he tells Keri and O that he has to take it to the people), then this might provoke an invasion? No?

yes, Neshama. He can't cave because he knows 1. he has no party to be the head of if he caves. 2. Yes, he knows that Israel under normal circumstances would not survive. The situation has changed. Bibi actually realizes that there is no broken reed to rely on right now...even in the world of realpolitik. He may be faithless, but he is a smart enough man to figure this out. He really is playing for time. Releasing murderers from jail is just another way to play for time, to keep masses of foreign troops from coming here. Abbas blew up over the Jordan Valley again. Bibi won't budge on that issue. Just on that alone, this will all fall apart, Baruch HaShem. Bibi knows this too. There are many village idiots in the world, Bibi is not one of them. Cowardly but brilliant. a tactician. a Chess Player who will soon run out of moves. Then what will he do?

By the way, this united capital for two peoples is of course a bunch of huey. As soon as they negotiate this, the invented people will then insist that they run their own neighborhoods. And Bibi has figured that out too.

For the first time in nearly 2000 years, Europe has it's own currency, the Euro, established by the provisions in the 1992 Maastricht Treaty on European Union. The EU is also building it's own military. The WEU has only 10 member countries. The rest of the 25 or so countries have only associate or observer membership status.

The 70th Week of Daniel’s 70 weeks is a seven-year period, which begins with the agreement between the prince who is to come, a descendent of the Roman armies, and Israel allowing the Beis HaMikdash, the Temple, to be rebuilt. Gabriel informed Daniel, that a specific time period was determined (Daniel 9:24) on his people and his city.

Gavriel HaMal'ach was referring to years. 1290 years from Nebuchandnezzar stopping the tamid service 18 years before the First Temple was destroyed until the laying of the foundation of the Dome of the Rock. If one accepts Rav Schwab's explanation that the First Temple was destroyed in 586 bce, 165 years earlier that what the Jewish calendar contends, then 18 years before that was in 604 bce. Jump forward 1290 years (remembering that there was no year 0), One arrives at 687 ce when the cornerstone for the Dome of the Rock was laid.

Now jump forward 1335 years from 687 ce, one arrives at 2022 ce, 7 years after 5775 (2015). When bli ayin hara, Mashiach ben David gets here in 5776, it will take him 7 years to build the 3rd Temple just as it took Shlomo 7 years to build the 1st Temple. I believe as many other believe that we will have a mitzvah to build the 3rd Temple and that it is not coming down from Heaven complete. The 3rd Temple will then be dedicated on Shabbat Tisha B'Av 5782.

The positioning of Israel to begin the 70th requires several important steps before this period can begin. Some steps are implicitly stated in scripture, some inferred and others we can only speculate. This we clearly know from scripture must happen before the 70th week can begin.

· Israel must be restored to the land

· There will be a conflict between the Islam and the Israel, before the 70th can begin.

· Israel must have the desire to rebuild the Temple

· The prince who is to come will be a world leader and a descendent of Rome.

· The Dome of the Rock must be removed to make way for the Third-Temple.

The need for a Jewish Temple

In addition, to the need of the people to be in the land, prophecy also requires a future Temple to initiate the 70th week. Before a Temple can be built, the people need the will to build a Temple. Presently the Dome of the Rock stands in the way of a future Temple. Over 1.2 billion Muslims hold this location sacred, believing Mohammad ascended up to Heaven from the top of Mt. Moriah in 622 A.D.

The Muslim world has already threaten World War if the Dome of the Rock is destroyed, and the Muslim world is braced for such an event. The building of the Temple will cause a world wide conflict pitting Muslim nations and their allies against Israel and her allies.

So troops will come here anyway in year 14 from the Al Aksa Intifada, and no one can stop it this time. Or at least the world will TRY to send troops. If they try really hard this year and meet resistance from the Almighty in 5774, then the Mt. of Olives will split in two during Sukkot 5775 or before.

Me'ir: Sefer Daniel speaks about a final Sabbatical cycle where there is an 11th horn made of iron mired in clay (half- Xtian and half Muslim). We are obviously in that cycle. The time, times and half a time is very cryptic and not necessarily 3 1/2 years. Nowhere in Jewish Scripture does it say that the Temple has to be built at during this time unless you can find that for me. But the Talmud in Sanhedrin 98a does make it clear that ben David will come at the close of that final seven year cycle even if very few Jews have done teshuvah. That is the reference to the Man dressed in linen mentioned at the top of that page in the Talmud referencing Sefer Daniel 12. Even at this time the "time, times and half a time" expression seems to defy a set interpretation. It is truly a puzzle, and as I just said does NOT have to necessarily refer to 3 1/2 years. If the Targum Yonatan had lived to do a peirush on Sefer Daniel we would know what it means. But alas we are in that final 7 year cycle now in the 6th year of that cycle.

Joshua answered, But it is elsewhere written, And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times and a half' and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.4 At this R. Eliezer remained silent.

Footnote #4 is Daniel Chapter 12, referring to the fact that during or at the end of the half iron/ half clay 11th horn dude Shmittah cycle, the "angel clothed in linen" swears that the Final Redemption will take place. Shabbat Shalom.

Neshama: Idolatry even if it is personal popularity or World Public Opinion is a form of mental illness with no cure except teshuvah. It is not very easy for the very wicked to do teshuvah. The more steeped in wickedness, the more difficult is the teshuvah. For someone like The Vulture, teshuvah is almost impossible. It is a form of it being hard to teach an old dog a new trick..if the old dog is a mongrel who is used to stealing the food of other dogs with a lifetime of practice. I don't know what Rav Ovadia Yosef saw in him. He likely thought that as a figurehead let him get all this ridiculous kavod where he should not be able to do any real harm. But he does do harm even as a figurehead.

In short the Mashiach ben Yosef period of our history is coming to a close from the perspective that he will NOT be elected into power. The only way that Pollard is getting out of jail is through a miracle, an obvious one at that. We will be on the Mashiach ben David track by this Pesach. The coming of Eliyahu HaNavi is the dividing point between the "failed" era of Mashiach ben Yosef because his coming was in many ways in our collective hand and the era which will come no matter what some do to try to stop it, the Era of Mashiach ben David. In the b'itah framework he will be our king starting some time in 5776. There is a possibility that there will be a period of time here in Eretz Yisrael where human authority will break down until then. When that occurs, for that period of time, G-d alone will be our government with no human king or Prime Minister. It should be apparent by now that we are already in transition.

R. Yitzchak: R. Yochanan said, (Mashi'ach) Ben David will come in a generation in which Chachamim are decreasing, everyone else is despairing, great afflictions and harsh decrees come without respite.

R. Yehudah: Ben David will come in a generation in which Batei Medrash are used for Zenus, Galil will be destroyed, the Gavlan (a place) will be desolate, people of the Gevul (border of Eretz Yisrael; alternatively, the Sanhedrin) will wander from city to city without rest, Chachamim's Chachmah will spoil, people will despise those who fear sin, people's faces will resemble that of dogs (without shame; Maharsha - outwardly (and insincerely) showing love for people), "Veha'Emes Ne'ederes".

R. Nehurai: Ben David will come in a generation in which youths shame elders, and elders stand in front of youths. A daughter reviles and shames her mother, a daughter-in-law shames her mother-in-law, people's faces resemble that of dogs, a son feels no shame in front of his father.

R. Nechemyah: Ben David will come in a generation of great brazenness, people will not honor each other (alternatively - even the most honorable people are crooked), even though many grapes grow, wine is expensive (because grapes do not yield much wine; alternatively, because everyone drinks a lot), the entire kingdom will be heretics, there is no rebuke.

Saar to Bennett: Don't Like Terrorist Release? Resign


Expressing satisfaction at the defeat of a law that would have prevented the release of terrorists by the government, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said that “Today, we have again made it clear that the government, as opposed to some of its members, is working on behalf of the interests of the state, and not according to the interests of cynical parties or the rabbis of Judea and Samaria.” Livni did not specify which party she meant, but it was widely assumed she was referring to Bayit Yehudi.

Of course, I would have preferred to see Otzmah l'Yisrael get into the government and do all this, but BY must have done something right to earn all that disapprobation! I'm glad some people still remember what got them voted into office.

Also the "Jewish pop." in America includes Reform and Conservative and other non-halakhic converts and children from Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers. The American Jewish pop. now is about 4.5 million and not 5.4 million. And "no more than 5 million" was Rav Ephraim Buchwald's stat from the mid-1990s too. So I am sure it is even less now. Oh, the Rav also said that of that figure about 1.5 to 2 million of those Jews would even deny that they were Jews if you asked them.

Obama's 'new' Mideast policy: Modesty or pullback?

Elliott Abrams is a senior fellow for Middle East Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. This piece is reprinted with permission and can be found on Abrams' blog “Pressure Points” here.

Saturday's New York Times carries a remarkable story about the "new" Obama Middle East policy, based on interviews with National Security Advisor Susan Rice. The Times describes the policy as "modest," but that is not the right word. The policy defines an American abandonment of leadership in the region.

On Iran, the new policy seeks a negotiated deal and previous claims that "all options are on the table" are gone. No one appears to have calculated how the American and Western negotiating positions are weakened when the Iranian fear of a military attack is eliminated. A second focus is the Israeli-Palestinian "peace process," despite the fact that no sober Israeli or Palestinian official believes a deal can be reached at this time. The third focus is Syria, where the policy now appears to be centered on Geneva talks that are sinking even as the Times article appears in print. I would rate the new policy focus as 0 for 3.

What’s missing? A determination to end the Iranian nuclear weapons program -- and to do so even if negotiations fail or if Iran’s position in the negotiations is unacceptable. A decision to prevent Iranian and Hezbollah expeditionary forces from achieving a victory in Syria that will change the balance of power in the entire region. A commitment to help those individuals in the region who are struggling peacefully for democracy and human rights. An American promise to allies, such as Jordan and the Gulf countries facing Iran, that we will stand by them in the face of refugee crises, economic difficulties, or Iranian aggression and subversion. Add it all up and what is missing is American leadership, and this is precisely the complaint – and the fear – of our friends in the region.

The Times story cannot be dismissed as sheer speculation; it is based on the words of the new National Security Advisor. It will hearten our enemies in the Middle East, such as Hezbollah and the Assad regime and Iran, and confirm to our friends there that they will be far more on their own for the next few years than they have been for most of the last few decades. Think of it this way: Who will be smiling when reading that article? An Israeli thinking about Iran’s nuclear weapons program, an Egyptian newspaper editor wondering about the limits of free speech, a Jordanian fearing a continuing flow of refugees from Syria and Hezbollah/Iranian dominance there, an Emirati worried about Iranian subversion -- or Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei?

Russian deputy GRU commander on secret visit to Cairo
DEBKAfile October 28, 2013, 2:25 PM (GMT+02:00)

Lt. Gen. Vyacheslav Kondrashov, Dep. Commander of GRU, Russian military intelligence, has arrived in Cairo for secret talks with Egypt’s military leaders. He heads a large Russian delegation, the first high-ranking military visitors to Cairo in many years. DEBKAfile: The visit was arranged by Riyadh as a further step to distance Cairo from its dependence on the United States. Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan was in Moscow in the last week of July. He held talks with President Vladimir Putin on a large Russian arms transaction for Egypt, with the Saudis footing the bill. The GRU general’s visit Monday ties in with a prospective transaction. Egypt has not acquired Russian arms in 41 years since breaking off ties with Moscow in 1972.

All things and all creatures stand on the earth all the time. The only way anything can leave the earth is if some countervailing force overcomes the pull of gravity, distancing the object from the earth in accordance with the strength of the countervailing force. As soon as the countervailing force ceases, the object returns to earth.

Thus when a person throws an object upwards, the force that he applies distances it from the earth: the greater his strength, the higher he can throw it. Afterwards, however, when the countervailing force is spent, the object falls back down to the ground because of the gravitational pull of the earth, which draws everything to it. Were it not for this, nothing would stay on earth, because the earth is a round ball and everyone in the world stands on its surface. It is because of the earth's gravitational pull that a thrown object falls back down to earth as soon as the countervailing force ceases.

The Tzaddik is the "earth", for "the Tzaddik is the foundation of the world" (Proverbs 10:25 ) and everything rests upon him. The Tzaddik has a gravitational power of attraction that draws everything to him, for the true Tzaddik is the foundation of the world and everything derives from him. All the other Tzaddikim are only branches of the true Tzaddik, each according to his level: one may be a branch while another may be a branch of a branch. For this unique Tzaddik is humble and lowly and makes himself like dust: for "I am dust and ashes" (Genesis 18: 27 ) . He is the foundation of the world precisely because he is "dust" and thus he supports everything.

And it would be fitting for all humanity to be drawn to this Tzaddik who is the "dust" and has this "drawing power". However , people are separated and distanced from the Tzaddik by a countervailing force, because of the words and deeds of certain individuals who forcibly distance people from the Tzaddik in accordance with the strength of the countervailing force. However, when this countervailing force ceases, the person is once again drawn to the Tzaddik, who is the "dust" and possesses a gravitational force of attraction.

Some people remain very far from the Tzaddik as long as they are still under the influence of the countervailing force. But as soon as this force is interrupted, they draw close again. And when traveling to the Tzaddik, the nearer he comes to the place of the Tzaddik , the greater his desire becomes, because he is approaching the source of attraction.

Rabbi Yaakov Filber, BeAhava VeEmuna

Many crises have beset Israeli society in these times. The greatest one is the crisis of leadership. This crisis affects all spheres, and it may be that all other crises stem from it.

When the Jewish People suffer from inferior leadership, sometimes it is because they have foolishly chosen such leaders for themselves. Yet sometimes their bad leadership is a punishment from Heaven for the corrupt behavior of the public. As the Talmud states (Bava Kamma 52a), “A goat leads the flock. When the shepherd is angry at the flock he blinds the goat.” Rashi explains: “Blinding the goat makes it fall into pits, and the flock falls in after it. Likewise, when G-d wants to punish Israel, He appoints disreputable leaders for them.”

The blind goat is an example of a failure in leadership. Another example is the spies who were sent to spy out the Land.

When Moses sees that he is about to conclude his task, he understands that finding a good leader to replace himself cannot be taken for granted. Thus he does not rely on Israel to appoint themselves the continuing leadership. Yet at the same time he does not rely on himself either. Moreover, he does not do what Jacob did before his death, delineating for each of his sons that son’s specific role. Rather, he asks, “Let G-d appoint a man over the community” (Numbers 27:15). Why did Moses pass to G-d the task of choosing Moses’s own replacement? Our sages teach (Gittin 14a), ‘A person cannot truly grasp what the Torah says until he fails in its regard.” Such a failure Moses experienced when he chose the spies who went into the Land. Although Moses had chosen the finest leaders, in the final test of the result, he failed. Therefore, when he had to choose a new leader for the Jewish People, he asked G-d to do it: “Let the Ominipotent G-d of all living souls appoint a man over the community. Let him come and go before them, and let him bring them forth and lead them. Let G-d’s community not be like sheep that have no shepherd” (Numbers 27:15).

The Midrash comments: “When Moses heard that he was going to die, he began to pray for G-d to show Israel mercy, that G-d should provide them with a shepherd who would have the personality to bear them. He said, ‘Master of the Universe! You know all the personalities of people, who is tolerant, who is ill-tempered. Appoint over Israel a leader who will go forth before them in the Desert, taking care of all their needs, leading them out quickly and aiding them with his prayers.”

Another example of the possibility of failure in choosing a leader for Israel we find when the Prophet Samuel is asked to find a replacement for Saul. Even though Samuel was himself totally devoted to the Jewish People, he erred when he saw David and his brothers, thinking that David’s older brother, the tall, handsome Eliav was the one chosen by G-d to be king. Here G-d apprised him of his error, saying, “Man can see with his eyes, but G-d sees into the heart” (I Samuel 16:7).

Today as well we need a leader such as Moses requested. However important such a request is in any other generation, in our own generation it is imperative, and we pray that G-d will provide such leadership speedily in our day.

Shalom Reb Dov,

I read your original post over again and I noticed this:

"We only started sinning against each other from the year that the war was over starting in 5750, just like Bibi himself. Cutting off the peyot of Teimani Jews descending from their aircraft qualifies as disgusting behavior for instance."

This brings up for me one, or maybe two issues, depending on the answer to the first question:

Which war was this that ended in 5750 (1990)? I thought you were still speaking of the early days.

A lot more was done to the Temanim than just (!) cutting their peyot off. Are you saying that the Israeli government isn't accountable for the stealing of Temani children and putting them with Ashkenazi families in the 1950s? In addition, their treatment of Mizrahim generally was deplorable, to say the least (thankfully this is recognized now). Rav Ovadia, zz"l, wouldn't have had to rescue the Sefaradi community had it not been systematically torn apart and secularized by the Erev Ravniks then in power.

Many thanks for whatever you can do to clear up the muddiness in my head. And I have another related question if you're up for it.

There were 18 million Jews in the world just before the Shoah in 5699. 1/3 of them were murdered. 1/3 of world Jewry is killing itself through massive assimilation mostly outside the Land of Israel. The test of this generation for most Jews is to try and be here or to at least want to be here. The 6 million Jews who are here already have the yissurim of Aliyah and not the comfort of the Golden Cage on the other side of the Atlantic. I am not speaking about impoverished Jews who can't be here because of lack of money. But being here or wanting to be here is a great test. The 6 million who are here are likely the gilgulim and the survivors of the Shoah whether they were with Jewish souls or from the Erev Rav. The "suffering enough" clause is for Jews who are impoverished outside of Eretz Yisrael and for Jews who are here in the eye of the storm, the center of the earth and the crossroads of three continents.

Nowhere does it say in Tanakh that 2/3rds of Jews in Eretz Yisrael will die. It does say that 2/3rds of the Jews in the world will die in Zecharia 13. In a act of compassion HaShem has spread the "death" of 12 million Jews over 3 generations. The first 1/3 were murdered in the Shoah and are being reborn here in Eretz Yisrael, and another 1/3 (another 6 million) are committing spiritual suicide over the course of the last 70 years and have no legacy of rebirth. And now because Jews outside of Israel do have children, there are still 12 million Jews in the world, half of them abroad. But there will likely be pogroms in the United States when the fiat currency system in the world collapses. I have written about that before. Get prepared with kosher food storage in a country location. Therefore the 2/3rds of Jews (1/3 murdered and 1/3 spiritual suicide) have already been killed or have killed themselves. No other Jews need die on a massive scale if precautions are taken.

Know how to recognize a righteous gentile before doing this. Also become trained in the use of a firearm in order to guard your storage of kosher, non-perishable food with a group of other people. Don't try to do this alone so that the food can be guarded in shifts with a group of other people. Animal husbandry is a big plus. Raising chickens is very economical thing to do. See to it that the country location is in states that 1. did not heavily vote for Obama 2. that do not recognize homosexual marriages or Civil Unions. Usually these two points would be one and the same. Such states will be more dangerous when the money collapses because frankly the people in those states are more stuck in the moral sewer. Just be aware, in large pro-Obama cities, many if not most roving gangs of hungry people will be anti-Semitic. Get as far away from those people as possible before the bottom drops out. When Mashiach ben David comes those who have taken precautions will be gathered in to EY.

In previous posts there is one person who has sent in contact info. to prepare with her in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with food storage. And I have written about Rav Bar Tzaddok's community in Eastern Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains. I realize that people can't easily leave their jobs to run away to these places right now. But pilot trips to these places is a must. Helping to store food is another must. And when the bottom drops out, be prepared to move to such places as quickly as possible. Rav Bar Tzaddok interviews people to join his community. Set up an interview with him now, and be prepared. Ariella from the Mich. Upper Peninsula just left her email again in the comments of a previous post. The collapse moment is getting very close. It will most likely take place before the end of the Shmittah year 5775 (Sept. 2015) if not earlier than that. It will happen after the world tries to send troops to divide Eretz Yisrael. Don't be caught unprepared.

First off the 'revived Roman Empire' does not exist in the TANACH, it is an example of false xian doctrine.

You don't even have to leave the Book of Daniel to find where the fourth beast is located.

Lets condense the matter, in Daniel 4 Ne-buch-adnezzar has a dream that applied not only to him but the prince of Persia as well. A country can't be overthrown until it's guardian angel is first disposed of. This is why the prince fought so hard in chapter 10.

10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days; but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I was left over there beside the kings of Persia.

And the decree from chapter 4.

4:10 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from heaven.
4:11 He cried aloud, and said thus: Hew down the tree, and cut off its branches, shake off its leaves, and scatter its fruit; let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from its branches.

Daniels fourth beast and Daniels fourth chapter (note iron and brass)

7:19 Then I desired to know the truth concerning the fourth beast, which was diverse from all of them, exceeding terrible, whose teeth were of iron, and its nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet;
7:20 and concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, and before which three fell; even that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spoke great things, whose appearance was greater than that of its fellows.

(note: iron and brass)

4:12 Nevertheless leave the stump of its roots in the earth, even in a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth;

4:13 Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.


As Nebuchadnezzar was restored to his position so was the prince of Persia. Note the iron and brass band and it's roots in the earth (4:12) and the fourth beast whose teeth were of iron, and its nails of brass (7:19).


Daniel 11:36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.

Compare with:

2 Kings 23:13 And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the detestation of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the detestation of Moab, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile.

Gods of ancestors, Chemosh, Milcom and Ashtoreth the one desired of women.

The god he will honor is Allah, that his ancestors never knew.

Also: Tehillim 83 and 2 Samuel 12:26-31

The 'revived Roman empire' is an example of lazy xian analysis. They like to lift a verse out of scripture and build a shopping mall around it as they did with Daniel 9:26

As for Gog MGog, the mem is a prefix means 'from' Gog from Gog, or GeOrGe from GeOrGe. The Gog wars are the wars of GeOrGe.

Thanks! Great blog to glean info...

No, it is obvious that all these prisoner releases are to avoid agreeing to that. Netanyahu thinks that he can avoid Gog UMagog to divide Yerushalayim and Eretz Yisrael by releasing 104 murderers from jail so that the world will be relieved of its bloodlust in that way...instead of sending troops. Yet, the world will still try to send troops. Netanyahu's faithless attempt to keep the world at bay seems to be encouraging the world to want to beat us up "for our perceived sins" in their eyes because they perceive our release of murderers as an admission of guilt since in their eyes we are only releasing political prisoners. For the world we sinned grievously during the 1948/1949 War, and they want to come and correct our sins. In G-d's mind we only started sinning in the Fall of 1949, precisely when Netanyahu was born, after that war.

So when the world tries to come and send troops, they will

1. try to establish Palestine along the 1949 Armistice lines

2. try to remove Jews who live beyond those lines, including Jews in Yerushalayim beyond the Green line

3. try to force Israel to resettle refugees from the 1948/49 War, all 5 million of them, within the internationally accepted border of the State of Israel.

Don't worry. It will be wild and woolly, but we will see miracles.

Satmar Support for Casinos in Catskills NY
In opposition to a general Hareidi call against casino referendum, Satmar hassidic sect declares its support.

By Ari Yashar/Arutz 7
First Publish: 10/29/2013, 9:21 AM

While the Agudath Yisrael of America along with Hareidi community rabbis have started a campaign calling for an Orthodox vote against plans for new casinos in the Catskill region of New York in the upcoming November 5 general elections, Behadrey Haredim reports that certain groups within the wider Satmar hassidic sect support the planned casinos.

The plan calls for five casinos to be built within the year in the Catskill region, traditionally popular among Orthodox and particularly Hareidi Jews as a resort area.

Initially, both Satmar weekly newspapers, Der Yid and Der Blatt, called for a vote of "no" on the referendum, citing the moral dangers the casinos pose.

However it soon became clear that the Satmar group Kiryas Yoel, one of the three largest Satmar sects in the world, actually supports the plan for casinos.

Rabbi Moshe Indig, senior spokesperson for the Satmar sect, said in a statement to the media: "We will support the referendum and support the building of casinos in Sullivan County, because our community always supports whatever brings benefit to our country and therefore we will not oppose the building of casinos in Sullivan county."

I see the bigger picture - I know what's happening here, the birth-pangs of Moshaich Tzidkeinu and the whole process........ but I am feeling such anguish and sorrow for our bereaved brothers and sisters. My stomach is twisted in a giant knot. It must be like having their loved ones murdered all over again - such a horrific betrayal. And for nothing.. not even for empty promises. I alternate between anguish and helpless fury. I just want to lock up every single one of these evil leaders in a deep dark cave and throw away the key. Alternately, I want to take some of their heads and slam it against a wall until their brains shake back in place.
If I hadnt lived to see this I would never believe it - The whole Oslo evil leading up to today. I never understood how there were Jews that helped the Gestapo. I knew it I understood it, but on a cellular level I couldnt accept it. I finally do today. This self destructive evil is clearly divinely ordained, its as if they are playing a part and have zero choice in the matter. Someone took over there brains, hardened their collective hearts - its like they are zombies.

Syria: Assad’s Biological Weapons

Intellihub: “Chemical weapons are calculated, while biological weapons are living organisms and do not distinguish national boundaries. Monitoring Assad’s chemical-weapons stockpiles is far more transparent than locating biological programs, which are run out of both military and civilian facilities, in Syria’s veterinary labs, its pharmaceutical industry, agroindustries and public-health institutes.

Smallpox is by far the most concerning program Syria likely possesses. Syria has long been suspected of retaining strains of smallpox from its last natural outbreak in 1972, as well as possibly receiving genetically modified versions from North Korea in 2006. Unlike chemical weapons, many biological-warfare agents are highly infective, transmissible, have lengthy incubation periods and are genetically modified to circumvent current medical countermeasures. [...]

In light of this, it is indeed Assad’s biological weapon complex that poses a far greater threat than his chemical-weapons complex. By ignoring this and letting itself become fixated on just the use of chemical weapons, the West is allowing Syria to retain a dangerous capability.

Of course, the jury is still out regarding whether or not Syria even has biological weapons.”

Opinion: Glaring connections to Psalm 8:1-8 and Isaiah 17:1,14 are fascinating.

It could be hypothesized that there will be a prophetic war prior to Gog and Magog - Ezekiel 38:8, Ezekiel 38:11 and Ezekiel 38:14.

Psalm 83 lists the vast ancient Assyrian Empire, which included southern Lebanon, Jordan, Northern Kurdish Iraq and Syria which are four of the attackers in the Psalm 83 alliance.

Let’s suppose that Bashar al Assad does possess biological weapons and let’s further assume that he is destroying some of his vast chemical weapons arsenal in partial compliance with the Russian proposal, in an effort to fool the West.

Biological weapons such as smallpox are far more lethal than chemical weapons and have global scope. If utilized by Assad, Israel would have little choice but to obliterate Syria’s capital city Damascus, thereby fulfilling Isaiah 17:1, 14.

Shalom again, Reb Dov and everyone. Now things are clearer. :)

The question (or perhaps, statement? I'm not sure) that I alluded to earlier concerns my family; yet, it also has to do with general accountability for our sins.

It seems to me, based on what I am about to tell, that the Israeli government took a leaf from the state of New York when they decided to trample on the Sefaradim as they straggled into the Holy Land after a couple thousand years scattered around the Middle East. To what extent, and for how long this has been going on, I am not sure. I never got to meet my grandparents, who "star" in this story, because we lived on the West Coast when they both passed away on the East Coast when I was 2 years old. So my info is sketchy at best.

Shortly after my mother was born in the early 1930s, the youngest of 3, she was taken from the arms of her mother on the streets of New York and placed in a foundling home, where she was fostered out at 4 months old to an atheistic Ashkenazi family.

My saba and savta (grandparents) had separated and my grandmother couldn't speak English - only Arabic and some Hebrew. Their two sons, my uncles, were also fostered out to Ashkenazim. Essentially, they were all raised by Ashkenazim and, while her brothers rarely saw their parents, my mother never met them. They could not be adopted because it required the parents' approval and they could not be found. Or so it was claimed. Sound familiar?

I have heard that my grandmother was religious, but my grandfather was not.

Many years later, my mom and I met a whole bunch of our relatives at the home of one of them in Deal, NJ. They had held together while my branch had fallen apart completely. Their founding relative in the States learned English and fought hard to get her children back when faced with the same situation as my savta, and succeeded, B"H.

To make a long story short, my mother is more a product of the US foster care system than "Ashkenazi inside" while bearing the striking Sefardi looks of her parents. She is just now reaching out to the wider Jewish world and starting to learn from her local Chabad. There isn't much in the way of Sefardi stuff where she lives, except online. I plan to provide some of that.

Nevertheless, I have always felt that I started out two steps back, and suspect that my mom would feel the same way, if she had any idea. Fortunately I am more the researcher than she is, and I found a way much earlier - and to some extent she followed after me. But our rabbi passed away about 4 years ago (2 after I made aliyah).

So, what do you think of my thought of a connection between my mother's experience in the US and those of the Temani children, and of Sefaradim generally, here in Israel?

CDG: It is true cultural bigotry. Ashkenazi Jews forget easily that their so called superior culture in Europe hates their guts too. I knew a Chareidi Jew from England who loved German culture and English propriety, and I would look at him quizzically and ask, "Are you sure that you believe this?" This galut has been way way too long. Let me think about this some more though.

To Anon.: Yes this is making me angry and sick too. It just goes to show that the only free will that we really have is Fear of Heaven. Without that we can be made to behave like zombies if G-d so chooses or allows. Then there is the issue of sleeping during the night after releasing bloodthirsty savages. Have any of these public "leaders" come out and admitted that they can't sleep peacefully at night knowing that they supported this?

Why is evil so easy to spot now? because we are in the yesod she b'Malkhut year of the yesod she' b'malkhut Yovel cycle since Ezra HaSofer. Edom and the world of lies have no kesher with purity in either yesod or malkhut. So the wicked are easy to spot along with the zombies who think that they are aok.

Why release 26 murderes and not 25? Seems so much more logical to do 25! And when I am at it, why not 33?
Don't misunderstand me, I am not accusing anybody(Jewish).
But once I tried to explain to this Belgian woman a little bit about all these hurricanes and their names and how internet Rabbis -you- can see and explain from all that something important spiritual going on that is all conected etc. And you know what she said? She asked who gives these names of those huricanes! I thought that was a pretty stupid question at the time, but than again. People are free to come up with stupid questions are they not?
Is there a black side cabal who comes up with # 26 deliberatly? Or is this all a coincidence? But there are no coincidences under the stars. Or is the cabal also being zombienized? (they might know and yet they do not)If there are any such cabals? Since the goyim see conspiracy written all around no matter what, it is a fair question is it not? Maybe you are being set up on a most wicked dark level. And yet even there is HaShem, is he not? Hope so!! Hope you understand, and don't mind the question.

'We've reached the end of antibiotics'

Mail On Line: “Top CDC expert declares that ‘miracle drugs’ that have saved millions are no match against ‘superbugs’ because people have overmedicated themselves.

Srinivasan, who is also featured in a Frontline report called ‘Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria,’ which aired Tuesday, said that both humans and livestock have been overmedicated to such a degree that bacteria are now resistant to antibiotics.”

Opinion: In Joel Rosenberg’s ground-breaking book “Epicenter”, Chapter 4 is titled The Third Lens:

“While it is fashionable in our times to analyze world events merely by looking through the lens of politics and economics, it is also a serious mistake, for it prevents one from being able to see in three dimensions. To truly understand the significance of global events and trends, one must analyze them through a third lens as well: the lens of Scripture. Only then can the full picture become clearer.”

Five dead in Texas shooting spree, suspect captured
10/29/2013 17:42
Police on Tuesday arrested a 36-year-old man hiding in the woods who is suspected of killing five people, including his mother and his aunt, in a shooting spree around the small Texas community of Terrell, a county official said.

Charles Everett Brownlow, Jr., 36, was captured early Tuesday after a manhunt in Terrell, about 30 miles (48 km) east of Dallas, said the official, who asked that he not be identified but had been briefed by police.

Brownlow's arrest capped a series of grisly discoveries as the killings unfolded in four locations in Terrell, a town of 16,000 people.

Police found the body of a woman who had been shot in the head at one home about 5 p.m. local time Monday afternoon. A short time later, firefighters spotted flames coming from Brownlow's home a few blocks away and found another woman dead of gunshot wounds.

Late Monday night, a man and a woman were found shot to death at another home, where a 3-year-old boy was discovered alive in his bed, the county official said.

The fifth body, a man, was found at a convenience store and police chased a man fleeing in a car. At a dead end, the driver ran into the woods and was found hiding in a creek at least a mile from the store, the official said.

Police did not give a motive for the shootings and did not release the names of the victims.

One thing that recycling souls accomplishes is that the righteous from previous generations are already in Gan Eden. Those who have finally gotten it right with their free will choices have left the gilgul cycle long ago. They don't have to keep coming back. In our generation we have a few who have made their soul correction, but the rest seem to be the dregs. They are your Zombies, the souls that will never get it right. In the Gemorrah Sanhedrin the sages called it peering through the poop of a jackass at the very end of days. It is sad to see how few have figured out what they were supposed to accomplish in this final reincarnation, but perhaps it is worth it for the few of us who have seen right from wrong and chosen good over evil. time to call some of those relatives on this list who are suffering right now to comfort them amongst the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

Possible delay in Palestinian prisoner release
DEBKAfile October 29, 2013, 6:22 PM (GMT+02:00)

The Supreme Court of Justice asked the Israeli government Tuesday to delay for a day or two the release of 26 Palestinian terrorists from jails in order to provide additional clarifications. This was the first time Israel’s highest court had delayed a government decision of this kind in response to a petition by Almagor, the association of bereaved kin of terrorism victims.

The court headed by Miriam Naor asked the prosecution’s representative whether the government had taken into account the guidelines set by the Shamgar committee which ruled that convicted murders do not qualify for early release before serving their full sentence.
The 26 Palestinian prisoners, the second batch of a total of 104, were to due to be released Tuesday night.

Leah: by the END of the Shmittah year 5775 which is the Fall of 2015. That is when debts are normally nullified. This will be the greatest nullification of debts in history to bring to a close the 49th year of the Yesod she b'Malkhut Yovel cycle. The Yovel of Yovelot (Jubilee of Jubilees) will be in 5776. The 50th year of a Yovel cycle has no sefirah. In the chart whose links that I published, 5776 is the 49th year, but in actual reality 5776 is the year after a Shmittah year, and the end of the tenth Yovel cycle of Yehudah ben Shmuel of Regensburg. 8 Yovelot where the Turks conquered and then lost Yerushalayim 400 years later (1517- 1917). One Yovel where Yerushalayim was hefker or had a no mans land down its center (1917- 1967). And a tenth Yovel cycle where Mashiach comes at the end of that cycle, not the beginning of the next cycle. The beginning of the next cycle would be in 5777 (2017). The end of that 50 year cycle is in 5776. Note: The name Yinon is the tenth Yovel or Nun which is 50. That is courtesy of my wife who figured that out.

If Obama holds off on sending the Mammoth Protection Force until after the Nov. 2014 midterm elections, then the Mt. of Olives will split in two by Sukkot 5776.

We have reshayim running everything all over the world now....except Canada. Emunah 101 teaches that this is the time to leave it in G-d's Hands since there is no political solution to these problems. At the levels of yesod (foundation) and malkhut (kingship), the reshayim actually look like the monsters that they really are. Their clothing of Chessed, Gevurah, Tifereth, Netzach, and Hod (lovingkindness, strength or strict justice, charisma, eternity or victory, and glory) is missing at the levels of foundation and kingship. Since Yosef the tzaddik (yesod) is not here right now because he is rotting in jail, only G-d is ruling now while the ruling class is naked. Keep that in mind that He has now removed their ability to rule, and He is in charge of the ship now without human intermediaries since no one of flesh and blood in power has merit for the job...yet.

Canada has a big problem because the French whore/ excuse me prostitute/ sorry again mistress makes up such a large percentage of its population. There is no mistaking Quebecistan's influence. Western Canada should consider seceding, ....but it can't because it needs the St. Lawrence Seaway for commerce.

The only time in American History where a Nazi Party of sorts was almost formed was when the Kingfish, former Louisiana Gov. Huey Long, wanted to run for President against F.D. Roosevelt in 1936 with anti-Semitic radio firebrand Father Coughlin as his running mate. The Kingfish was assassinated in 1935 right after he announced his candidacy for POTUS. His base in Louisiana, the French US State, never faltered. kind of proves the point, doesn't it?

I've been having a hard time the last few days because of the terrorist releases - although I have no relatives that were injured or murdered (lo aleynu, for any of us).

Even tho this might not be the 190th comment, I'm sounding the 10-comments-left warning that the next post should go up tomorrow (or even by midnight tonite!).

I wait with 'bated breath!

I was hoping for better news since the Almagor petition was before the High Court - but, alas, they dashed our hopes yet again. HORRORS!!!!!!!!

Supreme Court Rejects Petition; Terrorists Cleared for Release

Is it me, or does our government love to see our hearts ground into the dirt?

Our hope has certainly not arrived yet. But I believe that it will. And, then, to h-e-double-hockey-sticks with them all.

Would someone care to explain to me what this argument between Rav Shteinman and Rav Auerbach in UTJ/ Bnei Torah is all about? What are the real differences between the two in this machloket? What are the publicly known issues on the table that differentiate the two? The dispute is getting violent.

Yes, the internal fabric of this Medina and the USA seem to be deteriorating at the same time. But the rebirth will be here not there even if what was in both disintegrates into dust at the same time.

We don't have Mashiach ben Yosef here as a transition to Mashiach ben David as we close the Yesod that is in Malkhut phase of history. All we have is HaShem now, and He favors the dust of Eretz Yisrael. Apparently that is all that matters.

Apparently Rav Auerbach is fiercely against any Chareidim even joining Nachal Chareidi units in the Army while Rav Shteinman supports joining such units. This is the only issue that can be discussed without getting involved with issues that cannot be discussed.

Here we go again, the Russians coming closer.

Cairo bids for brand-new Russian SS-25 ballistic missiles in major arms transaction with Moscow
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 29, 2013, 10:54 PM (IDT)

Lt. Gen. Vyacheslav Kondrashov, Russian Deputy chief of staff and head of GRU military intelligence, spent the first day of his visit to Cairo, Tuesday, Oct. 29, with Egyptian military chiefs, going through the list of Russian military hardware items they want to buy in their first major arms transaction with Moscow in more than three decades, debkafile’s military sources report. The Egyptians asked Moscow to supply the sort of advanced weapons withheld by the United States, and topped their shopping list with medium-range intercontinental ballistic missiles that cover Iran and most of the Middle East.
They told the Russian general that Moscow’s good faith in seeking to build a new military relationship between the two governments would be tested by its willingness to meet this Egyptian requirement.
They are most likely after the brand-new SS-25 road-mobile ICBM which has a range of 2,000 km., which the Russians tested earlier this month.

Russia is not entirely comfortable with this demand, having signed a mutual agreement with the US to stop manufacturing medium-range ballistic missiles. And so the sale of SS-25 ICBMs to Egypt could get the Russians in hot water in Washington.
Gen. Kondrashov told his hosts that their list would receive serious scrutiny and, in the meantime, Moscow is prepared to offer Cairo long-term credit on easy terms to finance the package. This would relieve cash-strapped Egypt of the need to find the money to pay for the arms and save its leaders having to turn to Saudi Arabia and the Arab Emirates for funding.
The Russian general’s arrival in Cairo at the head of a large military delegation was the first in 35 years. Since 1972, when Anwar Sadat expelled the Soviet advisers, Egypt has never acquired Russian weapons.

debkafile: Western sources are divided over the seriousness of the Saudi feud with the Obama administration and tend to minimize Riyadh’s shift away from its traditional ally, the US. But the Saudis are going full tilt to distance themselves from Washington and are meanwhile urging Egypt’s ruler Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, to turn away from his country’s long dependence on America. Hence the large arms transaction with Moscow, which was agreed as early as last July - and reported by debkafile at the time - when Saudi Intelligence Director Prince Bandar bin Sultan met Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin.

Word of the arrival of the Russian GRU general in Cairo appears to have prompted US Secretary of State John Kerry to announce Tuesday that he planned to visit to Egypt in the coming weeks. He may be too late to stop Egypt’s drift out of the US orbit, especially since he made it plain that he would insist on meeting with representatives of all the country’s political factions. This was taken to mean the Muslim Brotherhood and other opposition groups.
The Russian delegation has no plans to talk to any non-military figures in Egypt, which means that its members will not step out of the loyal circle centering on Gen. El-Sisi.

Peres: Israel Has Secret Weapons
Tuesday, October 29, 2013 | Ryan Jones

Israel's air force is globally recognized as one of the best. But it also possesses hidden weapons that have never before been seen, Israeli President Shimon Peres cautioned last week.

"Not all of the IDF's and the air force's capabilities are open to view. Whoever derides us and seeks to harass us should take this into account," Peres said during a visit to the large Palmachim Air Force base.

The remarks were taken as a none-too-subtle warning to regional enemies like Iran and its proxies in Gaza and Lebanon.

IDF Chief of Staff Gen. Benny Gantz followed the president by stating, "We are ready 365 days a year, at any range and facing any challenge. ...The air force is our main system for deterrence, offensive and defensive action, and has fantastic technological abilities."

While there is no doubting Israel's military prowess and technological capacity, many both in Israel and among its supporters abroad would argue that the Jewish state's true "secret weapon" is none other than the Almighty.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested as much from the podium of the UN General Assembly last month.

Netanyahu pointed out that despite the odds being stacked against them, the Jews had reestablished their ancient nation-state in direct accordance with the Word of God. And, as the Bible clearly states, "people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again," concluded the Israeli leader.

A survey conducted by Israel Today last year found that while nearly all Israelis are proud of their army, a firm majority ultimately places its trust in God for deliverance from the nation's enemies.

The SS-25 ICBMs to Egypt makes little sense until you see that it is a Debka story. We must remember that Debka is a Tom Clancy-esque tabloid military fantasy website which occasionally predicts the future only by printing any and all scenarios imaginable. They entertain to get ad view revenue an honorable parnasa especially when it lets the writers work and live in Israel, but they are not a serious think tank.
The international sale of the SS-25(RT-2PM Topol) road mobile ICBM, like all long range missiles is controlled by the MTCR which Russia is party to and this expensive missile system is useless without selling the nuclear warhead with it. Debka may even be mistake on the correct designation as they mention the INF treaty banning sub-intercontinental missiles to the US and USSR/Russia when it is irrelevant to the story.

Arab MK: Israel Must Submit to Arab Demands or Disappear

Would any parliament in the world accept such rudeness and disrepect. I believe all of them would through out such a member with his head first. But we want to be most tolerant even if it damages and insults us. Are we masochists? When are we gonna wake up?

"Iran two weeks away from weapons-grade uranium”: former IAEA senior official.

Joel Rosenberg: “Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks and has, “in a certain way,” already reached the point of no return in its nuclear program, a former senior International Atomic Energy Association official said Monday,” reports the Times of Israel.

“I believe that if certain arrangements are done, it could even go down to two weeks. So there are a lot of concerns out there that Iran can hopefully now address, in this new phase, both at the P5+1 [talks between Tehran and six world powers] and with the IAEA,” former IAEA deputy director Olli Heinonen said, confirming a report released last week by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, which stated Iran could muster enough uranium for a bomb by converting all of its 20-percent enriched stockpile within 1 to 1.6 months.”

It looks like a Chabad and Breslav takeover.

Ronnie is taking over for Mochin, with the Rebbe stuff, and Copeland with R' Nachman.

We can expect to continue seeing endless referrals to their leaders, with little credit to the rest of our great teachers and rabbis from the last 4000 years.

Expet to see alot more of their statements, such as "...All the other Tzaddikim are only branches of the true Tzaddik...".

They're proficient at giving themselves credit for everything.

This is besides the Christian-like aspects of Chabad, as we discussed in earlier posts.
