The Death of Sheker HaChein (the Falsehood of Charm or Popularity/ Public Opinion as a god) Part One

I stayed up for all my readers.  Monumental history is being made.  HaShem is giving birth to the Final Redemption by destroying popular sentiments, the collective yetzer hara, to do evil.  The Spirit of Popularity as a god is the Spirit of St. Louis to be discussed more fully in another post.  It is 4:40 am Israel time.  Officer Darren Wilson was found to have acted properly on all the charges being leveled against him when he shot Michael Brown dead near the corner of Chambers and West Florissant Road in Ferguson, MO.  He was not indicted on any of the charges that were being considered.  He goes free, but what vestige of Western Civilization will be left as the angry natives of the inner cities go on a rampage?  I don't know.  As of this writing, the Grand Jury verdict was just announced.  Good morning on the 3rd of Kislev in the Year of the Final Redemption 5775.

I do believe that the residents of St. Louis and possibly other cities will have a difficult time explaining the lengths that they will have to go to defend themselves to the world around them.  Dare I say?  They will begin to feel like they are Israelis in "Palestine?"

Confused and assimilated Jews!

NEW YORK — The Anti-Defamation League slammed the founder of Christians United for Israel for calling President Obama “anti-Semitic.”

Pastor John Hagee’s “remarks about President Obama were offensive and misplaced,” Abraham Foxman, the ADL’s national director, said in a statement Monday.

“One can agree to disagree about the president and his administration’s record in dealing with Israel, but to apply the label of ‘anti-Semitic’ is a serious denigration and distortion of the term.”

Hagee made his remarks on Sunday at the annual dinner in New York of the Zionist Organization of America.

Citing recent tensions between the Obama administration and the Israeli government, Hagee called Obama “one of the most anti-Semitic presidents in the history of the United States of America.” He also said Obama was “trying to break” the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Foxman countered in his statement: “The president continues to be a staunch ally and friend of Israel and friend of the Jewish community. And while we and members of the Jewish community have not always seen eye-to-eye with this administration on certain issues involving the Jewish State, the fact remains that this administration has continued the strong and unwavering alliance with Israel.” - JP

Will this development give us in Israel the courage to rid our land of all the nations - not only the Yishma'elim but the Edomim as well?

I hope so. Voices are rising up at last, bringing forth the idea that we must clear out the Land as HaShem requires. Perhaps if we understand that our very survival is at stake?

So much to comment on here. I am exhausted because I stayed up all night for this verdict. And they are burning down parts of St. Louis far more extensively than is being reported in the Press. I have someone I know who is on the ground there sending reports. We actually know a boatload of people there. So getting info is not difficult. This spiritual earthquake has only just begun.

Yes, Dvir thanks a bunch for that info.

There are lots of questions here. And I will need some time to give appropriate space to at least three points right now and the other points and questions tomorrow.

1. First of all, I wanted to point out that much of the devastation and chaos in Ferguson is NOT home-grown. Much of this insurrection of rage is getting support and manpower from many other American cities. For instance that Ferguson to Palestine poster was part of a march in Downtown Seattle as per the link immediately above. This is why I firmly believe that this widespread violence in Ferguson, other bordering suburbs, and on the South Side of St. Louis will eventually spread nationwide.

Two more points to follow....

2. As far as D'vir's point is concerned, The Vilna Gaon in his Pesach Haggadah points out that all the idols of Mitzraim were destroyed except one, Ba'al Tzafon, the avodah zarah that had Klal Yisrael "entrapped" in the minds of the Mitzri'im from the north at the Sea of Reeds. This was to bait the Mitzri'im to chase after us into the Sea thinking that they had the assistance of their last surviving god after HaShem had already judged their other multitudinous gods in the Nile Delta. According to the Vilna Gaon, Baal Tzefon had the "face of a dog". I strongly suspect that the Egyptian Sphinx had this same face of a dog. If this is the case, Ba'al Tzefon and the Sphinx would be one and the same. As we all know Dor Acharon Dor Pnei HaKelev (The last generation will have the face of a dog). This is because the avodah zarah that was never destroyed in Mitzaim becomes relevant at the End of Days to be judged......NOW! What is involved in the service of this avodah zarah? Answer: for the leaders of the generation to look back and see if they are popular doing this or that through public polling and focus groups. Yea, that is our Dor and our avodah zarah of popularity that is now being judged. Hmm. point 3. to follow.

11/25/2014 10:34 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

3. Neshama: Yes, that is precisely the point. The notion that something is true because it is popular is rooted in a deep emotional drive to be loved and accepted by other human beings, not just a few human beings but a huge percentage of them. Therefore if someone is loved by a lot of people with bad midot, then logically such a person must be right....NOT! of course not, but the only reason why we can say that is if we believe that the Creator has a different opinion than let us say 90% of humanity. So then we can stand up against the 90% and tell them that they are wrong. Avraham Avinu did this, but he was standing up against more like 99.9% of the rest of Mankind. He had one or two allies, Shem and Eiver for instance, but Shem and Eiver were content to separate from Nimrod in Ir Shalem rather than confront him directly on his home turf as Avraham did. One might say that this is why we are so hated. Not only do we claim to be right and correct although hardly anyone else agrees with us, but we conspicuously speak up through our words and deeds before the Umot HaOlam. We are not cloistered somewhere in the Himalayas, posing no philosophical threat to Evil. We are here, in the naval of the earth. In Nimrod's day that was Bavel since Mankind had gathered there in one place. In our day it is where Shem and Eiver had run away to in order to not be in Nimrod's face. The naval of the earth is right here in Ir Shalem now known as Yerushalayim. In short the Yeru prefix can mean both "where He (G-d) is seen" or "where He is feared" because Avraham taught the world both: that there can be no world Peace unless G-d is "seen" in Yerushalayim by dwelling there and unless He is revered by all Mankind. That is why Avraham became the Father of Yitzchak and Yisrael by inheriting Eretz Yisrael while Shem and Eiver were simply more distant ancestors. more .....

So why is this Popularity avodah zarah which is deeply emotionally satisfying and WRONG being judged right now in Kislev of 5775? because starting with the 3 x 26 murderer releases, the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference, and the Struma incident, the filling of universe of Yetzirah by the 45 letter Gematriah for HaShem began on the 10th of Av 5774. The filling of the universe of Yetzirah is most associated with the attachment of the Vav to the Yud and the Key in HaShem's Name. The Vav represents the emotional sefirot in Kabbalah (Gedulah, Gevurah, Tiffereth, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod). These are the emotions that HaShem manifests in the world when the Vav is attached to the Yud and the Key. Notice this attachment began on the 10th of Av. Michael Brown was killed in a scuffle with Officer Wilson on the 13th of Av 5774. As the emotional sefirot were being attached in Olam HaYetzirah, the Death of Sheker HaChein was made possible. Unlike human emotional vagaries, HaShem's "emotions" are expressions of absolute Truth. Very few people are open to this Divine emotional manifestation. It has to be someone who could care less about his personal popularity when he acts for what he thinks G-d thinks is right. Moshe Feiglin is one of those rare individuals who turns to neither the right nor the left in order to make sure that he is not fraying alliances by doing the right and saying the right thing. He cannot be bought by money or frightened into submission. Perhaps Moshe has caught Vav fever.

My question is: Since the U.S. is one of the nations of the world, be it the "leading nation". And since with this incident there was a breach in Noahide law, and since with the racial issue there seems to be another relation to the sons of NOAH. How does this fit the picture dear Rabbi? Also the goyim were always idolators one way or the other, with Jewish people being more of a mixed bag in that respect. How does this effect free will of the Americans? Do they have free wiil at all? if not, how do the underachieving in this respect of the Jewish people themselves fit into that picture. Toda raba.

Much of what I have to write about revolves around King Louis IXth of France, the burning of the Talmud in 1242 on Erev Parshat Chukat, the mass conversion of Jews who did not flee after this event to the Catholic Church, and the peculiar fact that the migration of French Catholics out of the City of St. Louis was along West Florissant Road all the way to the far northern suburb of Florissant, MO a suburb founded by French Catholics for Catholics. Most of the burning and looting two nights ago was along West Florissant Road in Ferguson. These are just some hints to help satisfy the curiosity of those who are waiting.

11/26/2014 11:57 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Hevel HaYofi is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. It is a more physical and coarse aspect of the feminine personality of the yetzer Hara than Sheker HaChein is. Sheker HaChein is purely emotional while Hevel HaYofi is more tied to male sexual libido than Sheker HaChein is. But because of its physical nature, it is not being destroyed at this time because the attachment of the Vav in HaShem's Name to the Yud and the Hey in Av of 5774 only affects the purely emotional sefirot....so far. And not so coincidentally, Los Angeles had similar rioting to Ferguson in the early 1990s.

Just to help the public find the reference in the Book of Mishlei (Proverbs) from Chapter 31 which begins with "A Woman of Valour, Who can find?", the verse in question is The falseness of Charm or Charm is false (Sheker HaChein) and the Vanity of Beauty or Beauty is vain (Hevel haYofi), but a woman who fears HaShem, she shall be praised.

It appears that the world has changed dramatically so.Every internet article is "full of Ferguson." No one, though, seems to tell the truth in the media.It's all about "justice", yet their terms of justice are wrapped up in an automatic indictment and conviction no matter what the forensics prove.
How can one seriously burn down half of a city area and think this is justified? How can one watch a store owner walk away from the burned out hull of his store with no way to feed his family and say this is justified?
I hear you that the court told the truth. I hear you. The majority, however "thinks" emotionally and has no clue what truth is. How sad this is, yet at the same time it is awakening the world to a new era....
all I can say is we need to engage ourselves in what is is outlined in our Torah way of living.

Ferguson/Palestine is a good comparison.

My son and I were watching the news yesterday and he asked "Dad, why do Michael Brown's parents tell the news reporters they want calm and peace, but then the father is caught on camera stirring up the crowds and telling them to burn it down?"

I answered because they are America's version of the Palestinians that say one thing to the cameras for the press to hear, and say another in Arabic when they talk to each other.

If you think about it, St. Louis is also on/in the West Bank.....of the Mississippi River in occupied Osage Indian Territory with one glaring problem. The Osage Indians are virtually extinct, wiped out when America wanted their happy hunting grounds. So the blacks in Ferguson are not the native inhabitants of the happy hunting grounds of the Osage. Dead Indians tell no tales, and they also can't appeal to the UN Security Council to get their happy hunting grounds back in return.
