Part 2 of The Anti-Oholibamah Effect

It occurred to me that by writing several posts about future President Donald Trump, I needed to set some parameters explaining why it is necessary to cover this subject in detail from and End of Days perspective.  Many people might be mistaken that these are political posts in support of the President elect.  These posts are not rah rah rah posts for the President elect even though with his appointment of David Friedman to be America's Ambassador to Israel, there is a new desire to tell Donald Trump Yashar Koach!  This is what Friedman has been quoted as saying, and all I can say is WOW!

Are J Street supporters really as bad as kapos? The answer, actually, is NO. THEY ARE FAR WORSE THAN KAPOS – Jews who turned in their fellow Jews in the Nazi death camps. The kapos faced extraordinary cruelty and who knows what any of us would have done under those circumstances to save a loved one? But J Street? They are just smug advocates of Israel’s destruction delivered from the comfort of their secure American sofas – it’s hard to imagine anyone worse.

This is a spectacular and revolutionary nomination.  No wonder why HaAretz is in a full panic about this guy.  Wow.  The Swedish meatball,  Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, is going to have a fit with this guy coming in.  So will Obama.  It is "Man (or Woman) the Defenses of Imposed Solutions from the UN time on Israel beyond the Green Line" at the United Nations Security Council before Trump is inaugurated!  It is appearing more and more that the Swedish meatball is going to take matters into her own hand with the blessing of her PM Stefan Lofven.  Not only is Sweden one of the five incoming two year members of the Security Council on January 1st, 2017, G-d has seen to it that Sweden has the Presidency of the Sec. Council during those critical 19 days when Obama is still POTUS in January (Tevet 5777) when all the Global fun to divide Yerushalayim and Eretz Yisrael seems poised to begin.  Tevet has always been the designated month to begin the final nine months of Olam HaZeh.  It is a tradition passed down from our Nevi'im that the nine months (271 days) must begin in Tevet in a year with one Adar in order to end on the First Day of Sukkot.  I was told this by a great tzaddik and end of days aficionado in his own right, Dr. Ya'akov Tabak formerly of Ramot zt"l before he passed away a few short years ago.  And all we must ask is, " Now that the nations of the world all have majority populations below the 49th level of impurity (2/3rds of Mankind), is this ready to happen in its time?"  Mind you, not because we deserve it in our own right by any great collective merit.  We have a Knesset here that can't stop the Sodomite urge to destroy yishuvim by the Supreme Court here.  From the PM down they are incapable of putting their foot down to stop great internal Evil.  The Final Solution to the problem of Evil is beyond the scope of their brains.  Netanyahu has a big brain, but he is not capable of calling the Supreme Court EVIL.  So G-d it seems has to take matters into His own Hands.  So we here in Israel are hanging on at -49 simply because our Rabbanim won't marry homosexual men and give them marriage certificates when all of Malkhut Edom considers granting those certificates as sign of enlightenment of Western Civilization.  So we are at -49, and they are at -50.  You can't get a less meritorious generation than that, but guess what?  They beat us to the sewer! So we should celebrate that when Sodom, Sweden proposes their resolution in the UNSC.  At least for the next nine months starting in Tevet, we won't be suffering because our enemies have more merit than we do.  Lo and behold they have no merit whatsoever!  That was decided on Shavuot night at Alot HaShachar when Sefirat HaOmar Mateen became the 50th dead body in that homosexual bar in Orlando.  This Decree of the World being at -50 was then signed and sealed and sent into the physical world during the Tishrei Holy Day season of Tishrei 5777.  And it entered the physical bri'ah as a day to day fact on the 7th of Cheshvan, as it always does every year, but this year the 7th of Cheshvan was American election day!  And from that day, Zayin Cheshvan 5777, we got Donald Trump to ponder about the hidden miracle of his victory as if a new page had been turned on a new Era.  

So here is my response to a comment about Donald Trump on the previous post.  This is necessary to understand that the purpose of the Trump Presidency is NOT to save us here in Israel.  It is not even to save America since a majority of Americans actually voted for Trump's opponent and still think that Obama is doing a fine job.  Those people are for the most part reprobates who are beyond the point from where they can be redeemed at all.  Yet, a portion of them can be brought back as Ba'alei Teshuvah in the right way of being a Baal Teshuvah, unattached to the religion of Yoshke.  Those seem to be the souls that G-d Himself is aiming to extract from the flames of Gehinnom as the Ship of Mankind in Olam HaZeh goes down the tubes:

 As any reader of this blog knows, I have major issues with Trump also. But apparently HaShem wants someone who is not a Xtian but who has tremendous potential for doing teshuvah for Esav Soneh et Yaakov (the halakhah that Esav hates Ya'akov) as a Noachide and not as a Xtian. There is now a reasonably large minority of Americans who would follow this path as a Noachide, but who are as of right now languishing below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah themselves. If Ted Cruz had been elected, we would have better certainty about his moral pro-Israel philosophy, but as a Xtian, he could not lead a large number of Americans, representing the middle third of the culture, in teshuvah, that is those Americans who had become estranged from Xtianity. With Trump teshuvah is possible 

1. without the p'gam of believing in a triune god with G-d at the helm, 
2. from a very low level of leading a personally morally debased lifestyle that America as a whole had sunk into over the course of the last 50 years since the Summer of 1967, and 
3. as a Noachide not as a Xtian. 

Any end of days scenario for teshuvah has to include a rejection of Xtianity even if it is the face of a very pro-undivided Israel philo-Semitic variety. Xtianity has three major issues that won't exist in the Messianic Era. 

1. Any scent of G-d not being One will be eliminated from true spirituality. "HaShem shall be One and His Name will be One." Nowhere does it say that His Name will be Three.

2. The idea that our acts are so dirty that we can't be "saved" because of our deeds (which are dirty rags):  That idea will be placed in the dustbin of history. It is simply utterly false and untrue. Our Avot were totally human and were judged by both their Deeds and their Faith, and G-d always takes into account our extenuating circumstances when He judges us. As Ya'akov said in this week's parshah, "I have fallen short of all the Chassadim and all the Emeth that You have done for your servant." This includes G-d's undeserved lovingkindness for Ya'akov AND His reward for Ya'akov's good deeds, rooted in Emeth which includes taking into account Ya'akov's extenuating circumstances. And even when we fall short by NOT choosing the best possible choice available to us at any time during any situation, teshuvah is always possible even without korbanot. Korbanot DO make the teshuvah more complete by "cleaning up" the damage done to the physical world because of our sins, but one can most definitely repent even without korbanot and a Temple to offer korbanot.  

The extra aspect of teshuvah that korbonot offer is the opportunity to eliminate from the Bri'ah the Cheshbon of Sin on the Creation itself, the damage done to the physical world because of our sins.  When we do Vidui, we remove the stain of sin from our bodies if Vidui is preceded by proper teshuvah of the neshamah and the nefesh behamit, but just by doing Vidui, the stain of the sin remains on the Creation at large even if we remove it from our bodies.  Korbonot, with the proper service of collecting, transporting, and applying the blood, when re-instituted will remove that spiritual stain on the physical world at large.  Until then the negative effects of sin build up in the Creation, and every 300 years brings about a Churban, the last one being the Shoah.  This ends with the rebuilt Temple and the re-institution of Korbanot.   Notice that adding 300 years to the last Churban in 5700 takes us already to the year 6000.  So that one was the last one.

3. The purpose of serving G-d is NOT to accrue award in Olam HaZeh. The attachments that we form with Him in this World through Torah, mitzvot, and Good deeds are integral to building that relationship with Him for the World to Come. In this way Trump's potential for teshuvah is great in a multi-faceted, variety of ways, not just in regards to Esav's policy of dividing the Land of Israel as he did during the Gog Sr. and Gog ben Gog Jr. Administrations. Yet, the discomfort with Trump is there because unlike someone like Ted Cruz who has a well established positive moral philosophy for himself and for his country, Donald Trump does not YET have one. The Teshuvah has NOT YET been done. So we are uncomfortable with where he is morally holding right now or where he was holding during the campaign and unsure that he will improve in the ways that we hope that he improves. 

This is important:  In the end our Geulah here in Israel is NOT dependent on Donald Trump's teshuvah, but tens of millions of Americans could potentially be brought into full Noachide teshuvah as a minority of America's population, and G-d wants to populate the Messianic Era with righteous gentiles, not just with Torah observant Jews. 

Now you can begin to understand the reason for discussing these matters of President elect Trump.

The actual judgement for how our spiritual judgement on Rosh HaShanah which is sealed on Yom Kippur affects us in Olam HaZeh is sent into the Creation on Hoshanah Rabbah, BUT only the positive aspects of that Din become part of our day to day reality at that time since The judgement of Rosh Chodesh Tishrei is actually on the previous years calculation in dispensing blessings and curses. So the new blessing for the end of Tishrei doubles up with the blessing from the previous year all the way until the end of Tishrei. Because of this "double brachah" absent the curses, we do not say tachanun from the end of Shmini Atzereth until the end of Tishrei. The negative aspects of Din from Hoshana Rabbah except under extra-ordinary circumstances when judgement is immediately applied on Hoshana Rabbah itself, is usually filtered through the 12 or 13 New Moons festivals of the New year concluding as mentioned above on Rosh Chodesh Tishrei of the following year. So the "curses" for the new year really don't enter the physical creation on a day to day basis until the 2nd of Cheshvan after the negative aspect for judgement for Cheshvan has been mitigated by Rosh Chodesh itself. Yet, on the 2nd of the month, the negative aspects of the new month mingle with the negative aspects from the previous month, Tishrei, which includes judgement from the previous year. They mingle with each other until 7 full days have passed since the birth of the New Moon, aka 7 days after The Molad. So the first day where the entirety of the negative day to day aspects of that month are from the Judgement of the New Year is the day after 7 full days from the Molad for Cheshvan. That day is Zayin Cheshvan in years where the molad was on the 29th of Tishrei and is Chet Cheshvan in those years where the molad was on the 30th of Tishrei. This year 5777 the molad was on the 29th of Tishrei.

Firstly, a Refuah Shlaimah to your wife, Leah Chanah bat Esther Tsipporah.

Do not believe that the teshuvah of other nations pertain to the Geulah Shleimah. It is our teshuvah that H' seeks. We have reached the time of Redemption and it will come anyway. The Jews would be wise to start doing teshuvah as best they can, according to their capacity and the non-Jews turning to the Seven Laws of Noach. That simple. Believe it was Yad H' that HE saw to it that Trump was elected, to speed up the process. May it be with great rachamim for the Bnei Yisrael and the righteous.

So still not a majority of Jews in Eretz Yisroel and a lot of assimilation going on

...According to the Diaspora Affairs Ministry's statistics, there are currently 14.4 million Jews in the world, with 6.3 million in Israel and the rest spread out over the globe.

Over 80% of Jews who do not live in Israel are either loosely affiliated or completely unaffiliated with their Jewish heritage and the State of Israel.

In addition, only 25% of the younger generation in the US feel at all connected to Israel, and Judaism is relevant to only 33% of them. This trend creates a drastic drop in the number of Jews and in the need for the State of Israel to take an active part in reaching out to Diaspora Jews...

Definitions are the first and one of the most important (if not the most important) basic step in tanakh study. Definitions are so crucial that the application of improper definitions to events and personalities (both global and personal) leads to exponential cascaded type errors of monumental proportions. Prognostications then becomes guesswork with extremely low probability of coming true. Guesswork are not bad as long as they are recognized as guesswork and communicated as such.

It is necessary to get the definitions right first and not move an inch to application no matter how long or cumbersome/tedious it may be because once the definitions are correct events and personalities (both global and personal) become easier to categorize and prognostication (for those who prognosticate) have a high probability of coming true. High probability and not certainty because there's still the matter of correct application and God's final say.

On the other hand every eschatological edifice built on improper definition (either on self definitions or on someone else definitions) is bound to become unwieldy as the errors continue to cascade and will eventually crumble. Only God can help anyone get those tough tanakh foundation (Bereishit) definitions right.

The Final Redemption is NOT dependent on the nations of the world doing teshuvah as it is on Israel doing teshuvah. I would agree with that, but that does not mean that G-d does not desire that other nations do teshuvah, especially those nations that have been close to Him in the past or at least part of those nations. The classical answer to those who think that G-d does not desire that other nations do teshuvah are His parting words to Yonah haNavi at the end of his prophetic sefer when He (G-d) refused to destroy Nineveh in Sefer Yonah.

In this way HaAretz thinks that the Erev Rav are the real Jews. Notice carefully that HaAretz does not nor would not invoke a closeness to the Creator when it seeks to invalidate David Friedman's words. HaAretz's standard for demonizing Friedman are based on popular notions of what anti-Semitism is. It is not based on G-d's definition as the standard eternal definition.

Seeking a "popular" definition of a good value or a negative value rather than G-d's definition is a telltale tactic of the Erev Rav. The Erev Rav ALWAYS seeks to be loved and popular even amongst a reprobate majority.

Ivanka is the Oholibamah who converted to Judaism, the one whom Esav introduced to his parents as Yehudit bat Be'eir the Hittite. She IS that prophetic Yehudit since at the time that Esav called his wife Oholibamah Yehudit, Yehudah son of Ya'akov would not be born for another 47 years. So naming Oholibamah as Yehudit was "prophetic" to say the least even if Rashi says that Yehudit has three of the four letters in HaShem's Name. Esav could have chosen the name Yehoshu'it or some other male name with a Hebrew root and a feminine ending. Prophetically he chose the name Yehudit... that is prophetic until now.

In addition to the above Esav had three wives with five children with the following breakdown:
Oholibamah with three children. Adah bat Eilon the Hittite with one child (Eliphaz the first born who was Gog ben Gog Bush Jr.), and Basmat (or Mahalat) bat Yishmael with one child.
Donald Trump also was married three times and has five children dispersed amongst the three marriages.
Ivana with three children including Ivanka, Marla with one child, and Melania with one child

So now it seems that Ivanka will now have the role of First Lady because Melania will be taking care of what seems to be Barron's potentially severe developmental delays (something which is likely a very personal matter and therefore is not open for discussion). Whatever the reason, Ivanka representing her mother Ivana will as a result of the Divine hand take over the role of First Lady....and her name in ancient times (the one with three children) was Yehudit. So who is Be'eri? How about the previous President Barry Soetoro? That is the first thing, at least, which that comes to mind.

...the one whom Esav introduced to his parents as Yehudit bat Be'eri the Hittite.... Sorry for the typo.

By the way as mentioned in the previous post, the Oholibamah was a Hivite from a nation of snakes (Hivi means snake in Aramaic), snakes imbued with a sense of perverse sexual morality and often violent in that sphere. So it is no accident that Shekhem ben Chamor was also a Hivite. The name Oholibamah is the combination of the two names Obama and Hillary with one extra Reish, because if she had been elected the galut would have continued for another 200 years.... until very close to the year 6000. G-d said NO. It did not happen. So we have Yehudit daughter of Be'eri instead, and the Divine Hand is sending the world in a totally different direction.

Anyway, back to being very, very busy preparing for the surgery of my wife. Continue to comment.

It is not a big jump to point out that the family name of the Gogs (Gog Sr. and Gog Jr.) is Bush which is a wooden growth like an oak tree. I agree that a Bush is not an Oak but they are both from the Plant Kingdom. Always looking for connections even if this in not a perfect one. Ma'aseh Avot Siman leBanim.

Excellent, may the leave our Land. The King and Creator of the world, HKB"H, told us how to handle haters and enemies of Israel - fifth columns.

Bamidbar/Numbers 33:53-55 -- And ye shall drive out the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein; for unto you have I given the land to possess it.; And ye shall inherit the land by lot according to your families--to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less inheritance; wheresoever the lot falleth to any man, that shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers shall ye inherit.; But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then shall those that ye let remain of them be as thorns in your eyes, and as pricks in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land wherein ye dwell.

How much better is it when He installs fear in them and they leave on their own initiative. It is not the first time in our history that He did so. Recently we read in the Torah about Ya'acov Avinu in Chevron and what happened after the incident with Dina and the His command to leave the city.

The fact they are moving to the US (and elsewhere including Europe and South America particularly Chile) quietly is in some respects a blessing in disguise, since one can be sure the West (and leftist / sellout Jews) would be loudly shaming and manipulating the Arabs to stay put through their fear of losing face (along with potentially facing similar repercussions to those Arabs who dare to sell land / houses to Jews).

It is still a disgrace how the rest of the world and the left acts towards Jews on indigenous land.

We never learn in spite of increased anti-Semitism

Immigration to Israel plummeted by 12 percent in 2016

So history will repeat itself

“the Children of Israel went up (from Egypt) armed.” It seems that they were prepared to wage war if necessary.

Rashi, quoting the Medrash, says that the Hebrew word for “armed,” chamushim, can also mean “one-fifth.” Only one-fifth of the Jews departed from Egypt; four-fifths had died during the plague of Darkness. Why does the Medrash choose to tell us that at this particular point, after the Jews had left Egypt? Why did it not tell it to us earlier, during the plague of Darkness?

Earlier, the Torah said that a great multitude of Egyptians accompanied the Israelites when they left Egypt (12:38). The Targum Yonassan says that 2,400,000 Egyptians went out with the Children of Israel. We know that only one-fifth of the Jews left Egypt and that was 600,000 men. If one-fifth of the Jewish people totaled 6000,000, then 2,400,000 had died during the plague of Darkness. Now, we find a most remarkable “coincidence.” The number of Egyptians that accompanied the Israelites exactly equaled the number of Israelites who died during the plague of Darkness. The implication is that these Egyptians took the place, in some respect, of those Jews who perished.

Who were those Egyptians who accompanied the Israelites? The Medrash describes these Egyptians as the elite of their society. They were the wise men, the wealthy and the craftsmen. Pharaoh allowed them to depart with the Israelites.

Rabbi Kahana elaborates on the topic that I just published - about the 20% who left Egypt and the 80% who preferred to stay. He distinguishes between being a Jew or being Jewish. In our time, the litmus test is the same as it was in the generation of the exodus and the generation of Ezra the scribe.

So, the choice is up to every individual to be Jewish or to live the life of a Jew.

Look into the mirror and ask yourself: “Had I lived at the time of the exodus, would I have been with the doomed 80% who chose to remain in the galut or with the 20% who established the foundation for HaShem’s chosen people?”

Seems your timing may be a little bit off. Arutz7 is indicating that the UNSC is to vote on an anti settlement resolution tomorrow. That will affect the end times being around the Jewish New Year. How does that fit into your calculations?

For those who have been staying abreast with all the comments on the last two posts, we have spoken extensively about whether the UNSC will vote either before New Zealand leaves on December 31st or when Sweden takes its spot on January 1st. John Kerry specifically went to New Zealand after spending Election day and the day after at the South Pole and after inspecting the research stations looking into climate change in Antarctica on November 10th, 11th, and 12th. We do not really know what the Baal Kerry was doing on election day at the South Pole. We suspect he was inspecting the massive underground bunker structures down there at the Amundsen/ Scott South Pole research station that have built for the elites which they would go into in event of a massive meteorite shower from "Nibiru" or perhaps during a nuclear war. He then was off to New Zealand, and on November 13th he was there to discuss New Zealand's potential sponsorship of a UNSC resolution against settlements at the end of December before NZ leaves on December 31st from their two year rotation. Approximately 6 hours later just after Midnight on December 14th, Bang, New Zealand is hit by a powerful 7.8 Richter earthquake and tsunami which the MSM refuses to connect to the meeting where New Zealand wants to butt into G-d's business about the final dispensation of Yerushalayim. Also notice the same score that the Chicago BearCubs won the World Series with, our friend the Rule of 7s and 8s. (7.8 on the Richter Scale). It turned out to be a powerful Warning Shot across New Zealand's bow.

I should say that all the posts going back to the Bread and Circuses post contain our discussion about these next two and 1/2 weeks of UNSC resolutions about creating Paleostine and condemning settlements beyond the Green Line. To see those discussions you have to patiently wade through the Comments made since US Election Day. If and when Obama abstains this evening or after Xmas on this resolution or on a near future resolution or on all of them, I will reprint those Comments as its own post or as part of another post about this. But it is not so difficult to wade through Comments. Yes, it takes time, but in this case for now it is necessary.

The Egyptian resolution has been tabled for now by Egypt. Up next week is the resolution from New Zealand during Chanukah. The week after next, the hostile Swedes come in as New Zealand exits, and the Swedes get into the act. The Swedes hate us while the New Zealanders are arrogant do-gooders who, living on the opposite side of the world, think that they could live here with peaceful neighbors just by dividing themselves in two ..... as if they had any neighbors themselves to be peaceful and pieceful with. Forget about neighbors. They are surrounded by sharks..... literally.

The Egyptians likely tabled their resolution when Netanyahu reminded El Sisi who is helping him defeat Al Qaeda and ISIS in the Sinai and that such help would end immediately upon passage of his resolution. So next up is New Zealand who as mentioned above cooperates with Israel to defeat no internal or external enemies and who exists in a lonely island on the opposite side of the Globe.

An interesting question is whether Trump and/or israel can line up another country with automatic veto to shut this down.

Maybe England or Putin?

Bottom line is that if this is meant to start the 9 months than the outcome is locked in.

Question, what if israel is able to stop this than what happens to the nine months prophecy?

1. I have wondered aloud here in this blog whether Theresa May might indeed veto. She seems like a good soul. We won't know the answer to that until there is an actual vote. Something tells me that I doubt it because of the history of Great Britain here in the Land of Israel AFTER PM David Lloyd Gog and the original conquest from the Turks and then San Remo. They have all betrayed us in one way or another. Churchill had little chance to betray because he was only a wartime PM until Israel was founded.

2. Margot Wallstrom, if the New Zealand angle fails, is the ultimate foil for Sweden. She believes in nothing holy or Divine. She sees no Heavenly Providence as a hardened Socialista. On the contrary, Gog ben Gog Bush Jr. realized after Katrina and a few prodding phone calls from his friends, that there WAS a connection between Hurr. Katrina and the evacuation of Jewish Gaza two weeks earlier. So he refrained from trying the same thing on Yerushalayim itself. He even stuck the new American Consulate in posh new quarters in Jewish East Jerusalem in Arnona to show G-d that he harbored no evil intent. But that Gog ben Gog was a Xtian who often looked Heavenward at least on Sundays.

Margot, the despicable humanist that she is, only believes in her own prowess and her own warped intellect that assumes that even the most wretched wicked person is only wicked because of his oppressed economic or political circumstances .... unless one is a Jew of course. Then she can assume only malevolence. So Heaven and Earth could send her warning signs, and she and her Swedish Socialists will simply ignore the signs. Earthquake? Tsunami? The earth swallowing up the fjords? They would not even faze her. Full steam ahead!

And Let There Be Light! And there was Light! And G-d saw the Light, that it was Good! The Festival of the Or Ganuz commenceth Motzei Shabbat in order to disperse the Darkness of 2300 years of secular, godless Greek culture OR to imbue that very culture with the Light from the Or Ganuz, the light of transcendent sanctity. As the Rambam showed, both are possible.

The Greek culture is filled with 7s: 7 Wonders of the ancient world and 7 distinct notes in a musical scale, etc, etc. Greek culture is the natural world turned in on itself, unable at first glance to accept an infusion of Divine sanctity or to even recognize that the transcendence of holiness is even possible. But lo and behold we are in the two years of 7s and 8s (5777 and 5778). It should yet be possible in these two years to take the transcendent and imbue the natural seven dimensional order with holiness. Let it start on these coming 8 nights of Chanukah.

Once again things changed. Seems the sicko UNSC will hit Israel today. O will protect Israel's back by stabbing her in the behind.

What is needed is to abandon and shut down the UN. By setting up Israel for various legal attacks the UN has abandon all claims of justice. Therefore, it is worthless. Trump should stop funding it and demand that it moves out of the US.

Those that say the world needs the UN to protect universal rights do so while lying about facts. Those few things that truly help can be spun off, like the WHO.

Now if I was Trump among my first days work I would identify those few parts of the UN and walk away from the rest. I would order everyone else to pack up and leave. I would cancel diplomatic status for everyone else. And, demand that taxes must be paid until the building is empty. Of course, i would cancel all funds except those part that have value, such as WHO.

Let some other place house and fund the UN.

Those that claim the UN has value, let them explain where the UN has made a real difference. Certainly not in Syria. In terms of refugees, if the UN really made a difference there would be few cases of refugees. Instead the UN, now thanks to O, has lost its last degree of decency.

Part two

I doubt they will, but BN should keep quiet for the next three weeks, then the day Trump takes over he should round up the scum and upon their capture he should tell them that the Oslo agreement has been abolished by this resolution. This resolution makes all negotiations and any possible compromise impossible. Therefore, Oslo is no longer applicable. Their custody is based on their history of terror. If anyone wants to represent them they may apply. The applicable laws are the same as eichmen, if guilty punishable by death.

BN should also pass the Levy Report and make its findings the legal status of the land. Arabs will be granted the status of legal aliens similar to how American treats native Americans.

There is no way to fight this within the Teva. Bibi and company are now powerless. We are exiting the Mashiach ben Yosef phase of Jewish history of which Bibi was the last leader of the lowly Medinah and entering the 9 months cocoon which crystallizes as a cocoon on Asarah b'Tevet, preceding the Mashiach ben David phase of World history. The only way to fight the GogUMagog onslaught of the nations of the world coming to divide Israel and Yerushalayim is with prayer, Seudat Shlishit on Shabbat, and Acts of Lovingkindness. G-d will fight our battles here, and in many ways we will be powerless to fight the Umot HaOlam. It is G-d who will perform the miracles to obliterate their feeble attempt here. Our Derekh haTeva machinations will fail us. I am not saying that we should not make preparations. If you live beyond the Green Line, you should make sure that there is a place within the Green Line to run to in case things get hot and heavy. In short, have your fee in Machanaim, Two Camps, one beyond the Green Line and one within the Green Line. By the way this would include Jews who live in Gilo, Ramot, and Ramat Eshkol since those Yerushalayim neighborhoods are also beyond the Green Line.

The prophet Yechezel prophesied that in the end of days, Yerushalyim would be an international point of contention, and as President Barack Obama mulls a possibly devastating blow to Israel during his last weeks in the White House, that prophecy seems closer to fruition than ever now with the UN vote where the US did not put in her veto.

An international anti-Jerusalem scenario which sees President Obama using his final days in office to damage Israel via the UN, perhaps by allowing a resolution creating a Palestinian state to pass the Security Council without a US veto, is familiar to those who have read the prophet Zechariah.

And it shall come to pass in that day that I will make Yerushalayim a stone of burden for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:3

This is clearly Divine intervention. “=This is all for the believers. People are not acting logically. G'd is pushing things to make a person go to either the right or the left because the end is coming.


It was in the year 2017. The Israelis at long last gave up their
attempts to resist the pressures of the world. Their newly elected
national unity government approved the plan. The Palestinians, led by
a coalition of the PLO and the Hamas, had already earlier announced
the creation of a Palestinian state. Israel’s Left had been holding
weekly protests in support of Palestinian statehood. When the UN had
officially and unanimously called for such a state, even the United
States of Barack Obama voted in favor.

Remember Binyamin Netanyahu IS 1. from the House of Natan, (Rav Natan Mileikovsky zt"l) 2. IS a Leivi from here (Gam Ani Leivi), and 3. has taken on the mantle of the descendants of Shimi Ben Geira to destroy Amaleq in the Persian Empire. This mantle was originally given to Shaul HaMelekh, but when all of his male descendants died, were murdered, or were invalids unable to have children, the mantle was given to his younger brother Geira. Shimi ben Geira was then given the mantle of destroying Amaleq in the world. Mordechai was his scion, and Bibi matrilinearly is from either Mordechai or Esther. He fits all the yichus points in Zecharia chapter 12 as the one who is mourned for when the nations of the world stab him through.

There is one more issue that the Messianic Era has with Xtianity that I did not mention in this post. There is an idea in Judaism that a tzaddik can die for the sins of the generation. But it is p'shat that the generation for whom he dies reaps the reward for his suffering ONLY in Olam HaZeh. The one who died and suffers reaps his reward in the World to Come. This is true because we are all interconnected with each other in the physical world through the physical matter of the Creation itself. Even our animal souls intermingle. Yet, our Neshamah, or Divine soul, only intermingles with our spouse's soul. So we have an idea that our Ruchniyut is dependent on providing for the Gashmiyut of others. One give tzedakah, and one elevates one's own soul while elevating another person's gashmiyut. The same thing with the tzaddik who suffers for the sins of a generation. It benefits his ruchniyut along with the gashmiyut of the entire generation.

Nowhere in all of Jewish thought, Jewish texts, or Jewish understanding or discussion of the matter of the suffering of a tzaddik is it Ever brought up that the tzaddik suffers and dies for the Olam haBa of those who believe that he is suffering for them. It is a completely bizarre and foreign concept that does not exist in the Torah of Israel. That idea or belief that a tzaddik can suffer and die for the World to Come of other human beings has no place in Yemot HaMashiach. Yet, in the case of Mashiach ben Yosef we do have the possibility that a tzaddik dies in order to elevate Olam HaZeh, This World, into Yemot HaMashiach (not to be confused with Olam HaBa). This is entirely possible because what is happening here is that the entire Physical Creation is being elevated while the unrepentant wicked are being destroyed.....entirely possible.

A most unfortunate position for Bibi to be in. If he does what is right he would thumb his nose at this. But, even waiting a few weeks will not prevent international condemnation. Even with Trump's support the rest of the world will declare Israel as an apartheid entity. This resolution opens up all kinds of lawfare actions, even if america refuses to go along. And, who knows what political party will take power in 4-8 years. Constant lawfare is the future fact. There is little chance that the UNSC will allow a change. This is not like the General Assembly erasing the declaration that Zionism is a form of racism.

The real purpose of abstaining was multifaceted. Of course, it represents the hate embodied in this administration. However, it was also meant to destroy Israel's economy. About one or two years ago Karry stated that the obstruction to negotiations was that Israel was a military and economic powerhouse. Not that Abbas was a problem. That strength prevented the administration from forcing crazy concession from Bibi. So how does one force a country to commit suicide, you weaken them into submission. This was so much about giving various groups the power of lawfare. For example, let us say that a company is situated in Tel Aviv, but an employee happens to live in Samaria, the Israeli company can no longer do business anywhere in the world without the foreign business being liable for committing an international crime. This is because the salary paid to the employee is being used to commit a crime.

Trump's claims that he can still make a deal in spite of this obstruction ignores one basic fact. The Arabs had and have absolutely no intention of agreeing to any real peace, especially now that the world has legalized all their demands. Israel has lost all of her chips that were meant to be used in exchange for peace. So even if Trump used heavenly provided skills there is nothing he, or anyone, can do.

The only possibility is to deconstruct the entire UN, while keeping only those parts of value, such as WHO. America should tell the UN to pack up and find another place to be. America should defund all parts that are anti western and anti israel. He should cancel all diplomatic Passport for people associated with the UN. Anyone who asks why should be reminded how israel has been treated for the last half century, while really evil places are rarely touched.

For years I've been saying that the American veto of anti Israel resolutions was to prevent the den of thieves from ruling the assembly. By letting this pass O has thrown truth to the dogs. Now it is basically diseased and needs to be thrown away.

Coming back to the issue of protecting Bibi, anything he does to strengthen Israel's rights will only place a target on his head. Even allowing the Levy Report to be voted on will threaten his life. However, the evil supremes will likely overturn anything Likud does if it is seen as counterproductive for this UNSC resolution.

Ok, who will be next in line if the Prime Minister is to be replaced? Someone in the Knesset? Someone outside the Knesset but in the govt? Or a revolution of sorts coming down from Shamayim? Something needs to happen to move events up to another level? If the Embassy is moved, the palies threaten war. That would open the upper gates to flow down many changes in the govt. and in the country. A very interesting article might give a clue, The invisible Kappa.

If it is from the list of names we hear about it might be

Ben Ari

Or maybe Moshiach ben David. R' Nir ben Artzi claims that Moshiach is already here and that he will show up in this generation, i.e., the generation of R' Artzi, born in 1957.

"The messiah is protecting and doing Israel's battles through his thoughts and speech, without tanks and planes, you don't have to see him in action. Because the world is modern, people doubt. God is guiding the messiah one step after another.

Some know the messiah, and some know but remain silent and keep it to themselves. The day will come, it is close, in this generation, everyone will know who the messiah king is!"

Any comments?

The UN has become a toxic political entity. As such it will self disband leaving the space for Mashiach to rule allover the world.
Day by day the world arena is becoming more tense. One day soon we'll hear that the devastating war of Gog and Magog had started.
It's for sure Mashiach is active in the last breathe of this sinful humanity. He is truly unknown, only Eliyahu Hanavi is first able to recognise Mashiach. Any speculation that there are some people knowing the Mashiach is baseless and against the scriptures writing about the great surprise for Am Yisrael of seeing the real Mashiach.

A kosher Sefer Torah can be written and publically read in Greek in the synogogue. Even the word synogogue is Greek. The problem with the Septuagent translation is that it was given an honored place in The Great Library in Alexandria to be learned by the gentile world to be mis-interpreted by non-Jews and miscontrued for their own purposes for 2300 years in large part because the Oral Torah was not the guide for them to interpret the Written Torah. So just 300 or 400 later some Greeks for instance studied the Written Torah and saw Yoshke in all of its prophesies and in its entire purpose for detailing all Qorbanot. Darkness did fall onto the World for 2300 years which is the actual figure in Sefer Daniel when it discusses the Greek Exile.

The length of the Darkness of the Greek Exile from Sefer Daniel is 2300 years! If one calculates this from the end of the reign of Ptolemy I and the beginning of the reign of Ptolemy II, one gets in the year 2016 almost PRECISELY 2300 years.

Daniel 8: The Greek King Alexander whose kingdom was divided amongst his four Generals:
ה וַאֲנִי הָיִיתִי מֵבִין, וְהִנֵּה צְפִיר-הָעִזִּים בָּא מִן-הַמַּעֲרָב עַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָאָרֶץ, וְאֵין נוֹגֵעַ, בָּאָרֶץ; וְהַצָּפִיר--קֶרֶן חָזוּת, בֵּין עֵינָיו. 5 And as I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the west (Macedonia) over the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground; and the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.
ו וַיָּבֹא, עַד-הָאַיִל בַּעַל הַקְּרָנַיִם, אֲשֶׁר רָאִיתִי, עֹמֵד לִפְנֵי הָאֻבָל; וַיָּרָץ אֵלָיו, בַּחֲמַת כֹּחוֹ. 6 And he came to the ram (Media and Persia, two horns) that had the two horns, which I saw standing before the stream, and ran at him in the fury of his power.
ז וּרְאִיתִיו מַגִּיעַ אֵצֶל הָאַיִל, וַיִּתְמַרְמַר אֵלָיו וַיַּךְ אֶת-הָאַיִל וַיְשַׁבֵּר אֶת-שְׁתֵּי קְרָנָיו, וְלֹא-הָיָה כֹחַ בָּאַיִל, לַעֲמֹד לְפָנָיו; וַיַּשְׁלִיכֵהוּ אַרְצָה וַיִּרְמְסֵהוּ, וְלֹא-הָיָה מַצִּיל לָאַיִל מִיָּדוֹ. 7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and broke his two horns; and there was no power in the ram to stand before him; but he cast him down to the ground, and trampled upon him; and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
ח וּצְפִיר הָעִזִּים, הִגְדִּיל עַד-מְאֹד; וּכְעָצְמוֹ, נִשְׁבְּרָה הַקֶּרֶן הַגְּדֹלָה, וַתַּעֲלֶנָה חָזוּת אַרְבַּע תַּחְתֶּיהָ, לְאַרְבַּע רוּחוֹת הַשָּׁמָיִם. 8 And the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly; and when he was strong, the great horn (Alexander who died very young) was broken; and instead of it there came up the appearance of four horns (his four Generals) toward the four winds of heaven.

ט וּמִן-הָאַחַת מֵהֶם, יָצָא קֶרֶן-אַחַת מִצְּעִירָה; וַתִּגְדַּל-יֶתֶר אֶל-הַנֶּגֶב וְאֶל-הַמִּזְרָח, וְאֶל-הַצֶּבִי. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn (Aniochus from Antioch, from the border of Turkey and Syria), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the beauteous land.
י וַתִּגְדַּל, עַד-צְבָא הַשָּׁמָיִם; וַתַּפֵּל אַרְצָה מִן-הַצָּבָא וּמִן-הַכּוֹכָבִים, וַתִּרְמְסֵם. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and some of the host and of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled upon them.
יא וְעַד שַׂר-הַצָּבָא, הִגְדִּיל; וּמִמֶּנּוּ הרים (הוּרַם) הַתָּמִיד, וְהֻשְׁלַךְ מְכוֹן מִקְדָּשׁוֹ. 11 Yea, it magnified itself, even to the prince of the host; and from him the continual burnt-offering was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
יב וְצָבָא תִּנָּתֵן עַל-הַתָּמִיד, בְּפָשַׁע; וְתַשְׁלֵךְ אֱמֶת אַרְצָה, וְעָשְׂתָה וְהִצְלִיחָה. 12 And the host was given over to it together with the continual burnt-offering through transgression; and it cast down truth to the ground, and it wrought, and prospered.
יג וָאֶשְׁמְעָה אֶחָד-קָדוֹשׁ, מְדַבֵּר; וַיֹּאמֶר אֶחָד קָדוֹשׁ לַפַּלְמוֹנִי הַמְדַבֵּר, עַד-מָתַי הֶחָזוֹן הַתָּמִיד וְהַפֶּשַׁע שֹׁמֵם--תֵּת וְקֹדֶשׁ וְצָבָא, מִרְמָס. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said unto that certain one who spoke: 'How long shall be the vision concerning the continual burnt-offering, and the transgression that causes appalment, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled under foot?'
יד וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלַי--עַד עֶרֶב בֹּקֶר, אַלְפַּיִם וּשְׁלֹשׁ מֵאוֹת; וְנִצְדַּק, קֹדֶשׁ. 14 And he said unto me: 'from evening until morning, two thousand and three hundred (years); then shall the sanctuary be victorious (or justified).'

Anonymous, I read it in an article in the Mishpacha Magazine over Shabbat. The two Ari’s went to Greece to seek out forgotten Jewish Communities/Synagogues. In the article it says, “of all the languages in the world, Greek is the only one that the Mishna (Megillah 1:8) says might be acceptable for writing sacred books, although Rambam explains (Hilchos Tefillin 1:19) that modern Greek differs from the language Chazal were familiar with.. Still, there are reports that in the 16th century there were communities here [in Greece] that read Maftir Yonah in Greek as a remembrance of the language’s unique halachic status."

Ptolemy the First reigned until he died at age 84 years old and died in 283 bce. His son, Ptolemy the 2nd reigned with him as a co-regent for the last two to three years of his life. Ptolemy the 2nd therefore reigned from 285 bce until 246 bce with an overlap of his father's reign for two to three years. I have seen a source that the Septuagint was written down by the 70 sages in separate rooms, at which pt. darkness fell upon the world, while Ptolemy I still reigned but while his son Ptolemy II Philadelphus was his co-regent. So from the year 285 bce add 2300 years and then add one year because there was no Gregorian year Zero. To what year do we arrive?

2300 +1 -285= 2016 So one possible endpoint for the 2300 years from evening until morning, the 2300 years of darkness is the year 2016. I will have to dig up this source later.

The only language other than Hebrew actually in a chumash is the Aramaic commentary by Onkelus. When the Jews were forced to translate the Torah in Greek, darkness fell upon the earth and will not leave until Moshiach Ben Dovid will be here.

Also agree with Dror's comment that no one knows who Moshiach Ben Dovid is because he is the anointed of Hashem. There will most likely not be another P.M. after BN because after him will be MBD.

Lots of this speculation by commenters' own interpretations is meaningless. The good news is what Reb Dov writes about the nine month period until the geulah. May it be!

Just a strange and wild thought. What would be the outcome if ever company has a po box in Yehuda and/or Shomron? Every country will have to decide whether to ignore this act or do without vital technology and treatments. Companies wanting critical medications or licenses will have to go elsewhere. However, those things are protected by patent laws and cannot simply be taken "do to the greater public good " when it was public policy that caused the problem. Even if the UN sc wanted to enact such a rule Trump can veto it. This can put thousands if not millions of lives at risk and set modern technology back 10s of years. The next ambassador will say, you dummies brought this on yourself. If you want to fix it you must fix numerous other actions first. Than we will reverse this resolution.

Trump should insist and restating 242 and include that no future actions can in any way change it.

He should also end unraw. The fake refugees should be rehabilitated wherever they are. (I once heard that most of these people are historically citizens of Syria. That was why they had to show that they lived in the Jewish area for only two years. The neighboring countries refused to allow their citizens to return if they had left for more than two years.)

What about Muslim anger, like it or not the more you appease them the more they demand. Eventually they will have to be reeducated.

Here is a suggestion to that end. The Quran says that only Jews can have the historical lands of Israel. The problem comes up later when the the Quran speaks about attaching Jews. So how do you fix things? A rather simple solution is to apply the second statement to the eriv rav, who likely deserves to be punished at the end times. This interpretation will create peace between the Jews and most Muslim. The really cool part is that the historical Jewish lands include a large part of Jordan. What about non Jews, they will be treated like legal aliens but not citizens. The major difference is the lack of voting. Again, those from other countries must go home. Those in camps in other countries must be rehabilitated in place.

Jason Greenblatt, who supports the two-state solution but believes settlements are not an obstacle to peace, will begin travelling between Jerusalem and Ramallah shortly after the new president’s inauguration on January 20 in a bid to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Greenblatt was born in 1967 and grew up in Queens, New York City. After graduating from Yeshiva University, he studied law and started a cappuccino coffee company with pod machines at airports, but the initiative failed due to the rise of Starbucks.

He resumed his career as a lawyer, working in a well-known New York company specializing in real estate. He began working for Trump in 1997 and became executive vice president and chief legal officer to the business mogul and the Trump Organization. He has written three travel books, one of them about a family trip to Israel. He visits Israel several times a year with his own family. His wife is a psychiatrist and they have six children.

The company should say we will offer it, but take no responsibility should you be found guilty of any crimes. And, demand money up front so as to be sure funds will not be held up should they be sued.

Are The Jewish People Ready for the Messiah?

And a redeemer will come to Tzion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Yaakov, saith the LORD. Isaiah 59:20

“I don’t know how many people really, honestly wake up in the morning and they open the paper or whatever to see if Moshiach came. I don’t know how many people b’emet (in truth) really live like that. The point is, ‘Am I ready?’ Unfortunately, I believe that most will fail in the question if they really, really believe Moshiach can come now.”

“Moshiach cannot come to a wicked generation, so G'd will force the Jewish people to repent. G'd will not stop waking us up, even if He needs to use the enemies of the Jews. Whatever it takes, G'd will tweak the circumstances until we have no choice except to repent.”

Dov, I hope your wife is recovering and is doing well. You may have already answered this question, in some form or another, but I going to to ask this question for the purpose of clarity and to glean some valuable Torah lessons, so here it goes:

I have an important question - open to any one who knows the answer to this - is the War of Gog and Magog only to be a political war (UNSC resolution 2334 and others that harm Israel)and Spiritual War - The guiding Angel of Ishmael (et al Amalek,Edom) is Sa'umel and the Satan himself - who will wage an eternal, Spiritual war with Israel until our Mashiach comes, or will it also be a Physical war against Israel?
Some noted Rabbis, living and dead today, have stated that this war does not have to be Physical or a Military operation against us - for example - The Rabbi who runs the Torah codes - and the last Lubavitcher Rebbe, I think stated that we will not have to go through another Shoah, because the Holocaust - which will be the last attempt of the nations to wipe us out - was the physical War of Gog and Magog which the Ancient Jewish Prophets were referring to. Does anyone remember the Lubavitcher Rebbe saying that? If anyone can step forward and explain what will take place in the last nine months, please do so.
If it will transpire as a physical war against Israel and possibly against Jews around the world, is Zechariah 13.8-9 which it is referring to? Or are these verses explaining some other scenario, quite possibly the 2/3rd's referring to the gentiles, who only 1/3rd, being the righteous gentiles, who will remain? Or are these verses talking about only 1/3rd of the world surviving a possible, physical Gog and Magog Wa
Also a question I've been asking many Rabbi's for many years: Will we have any semblance of a Seder for the Final redemption just like we perform a Seder for our first redemption? Or at the very least, We should say Hallel!

Happy Hanukkah!

Ultimately, that concentration camp is where they will be transferring the settlers from Yehuda and Shomron from the *occupied land*. At least that is the plan - and it's been in planning for years now. So all of this latest news about the UN - it's been planned all along.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe never said that gog umagog is over. He did say (based on psalm 2) that the nations will fight one another while Hashem sits in heaven and laughs, and that it will be around Jerusalem, but not in it. There are definitely sources from the Rebbe that talk about earlier events having sweetened the inyan of gog umagog, and I've asked my friend Eli Soble to post a few of those when he has the chance.

Meanwhile, he pointed out to me that gog umagog is the final birur of the 70 nations, and all of them will have to unite against Israel. Here, in his words:

"The UNSC resolution against Israel, adopted this past Friday was the 1st time in 36 years the USA joined the nations, and some say even orchestrated it, in creating an official UN order that all territory captured in the 1967 war, including east Jerusalem is “stolen”. On January 15th there will be a world summit in France on the Middle East “peace process”. Reuters has described this as a gathering of 70 nations."

It definitely doesn't have to physical - but it could be.

In addition, Eli showed me sources on the idea of the 6th year of kolot, the 7th year of wars and the 8th of Ben Dovid coming, that people connect with the shmittah, which is now past. However, it seems that some sources say it refers to the actual year of the decade, in other words 2016, 2017, 2018. And that many seminal events for the Jews occurred in the years ending in 8.

That was last night. Then, this morning I happened to tune into a non-Jewish news show (blush) whose guest was an actualy xtian Israel expert who was knowledgeable and telling the truth for once, and he pointed out that the world zionist congress was in 1897, the balfour declaration in 1917, the establishment of the medinah in 1947, the winning of the six day war in 1967, and more that I probably missed. And some of these things were established in 7 but enacted in 8. There is a definite pattern here.

Just some food for thought. The question is, if anticipating redemption and learning about redemption are keys to bringing it to fruition peacefully, how do we share these things with the bigger world?

Again, I lifted this from Eli Soble on Facebook, just such important info:

"Israel’s government is now turning its attention to a conference planned for Jan. 15 in Paris, concerned the international community could seek to impose a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. According to a senior Israeli official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue is sensitive, the government fears foreign ministers in Paris will draft parameters Israel considers unfavorable, and will seek to impose them through the Security Council before Obama leaves office five days later.

“What they’re preparing there in Paris is a modern version of the Dreyfus Trial,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Monday, referencing an infamous 19th-century case in which a French Jewish army officer was imprisoned for treason after a trial marred by anti-Semitism. The difference, he said, is that “this time, the whole people of Israel and the whole State of Israel will be in the guilty dock.”

Kerry Plans to Present Vision for an Israeli-Palestinian Accord

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday criticised an upcoming Middle East peace conference organised by France, calling it a new "Dreyfus trial" and urged French Jews to move to Israel.

Representatives of around 70 countries are due to attend the January 15 conference aimed at restarting long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

Israel has strongly opposed it, instead calling for direct talks with the Palestinians.

"This is not a peace conference. It's a tribunal against the state of Israel," Lieberman told members of his Yisrael Beitenu party, according to a recording released by the party.

"A conference whose whole point is to harm the security of Israel, its good name -- a trial against Israel."

"It's a Dreyfus trial in a modern version, what they're preparing there in Paris for January 15, with one difference. Instead of one Jew being on trial, it will be the entire Jewish people and the state of Israel."

US Should Not Only Defund UN But Withdraw From It

Front Page Mag: “The United Nations does only two things consistently and effectively: waste money and bash Israel. Sometimes it manages to do both at the same time. After an extended, and no doubt costly, visit to the region, the UN Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women blamed Muslim men beating their wives on Israeli settlements.

No wonder the UN Security Council just condemned Israel. Who wouldn’t rightfully be upset that Jews living in Yerushalayim somehow causes poor Mohamed to batter his wife?”

My comments: Zechariah 8:23 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that G'd is with you.”

It is hard to match that verse with what is happening today in Israel, unless you get a grasp of what Zechariah meant by those days.

The prophet is speaking of future days of blessing when the peoples of the whole earth will join with the Jews because of their relationship with HKB"H. People will know that G'd is with Israel and they are His people (Zech. 8:8).

A few points. Meir: Moshiach has to come, whether the Jews are all good or if most are wicked, when the geulah has reached 'in its time'. The difference is if the Jews are all righteous (or most) it will come with wondrous glory & if wicked, it will be with great difficulties. We should all be doing teshuva now as this seems to be the 9 months as Reb Dov says and we should be happy. There are those amongst us who cannot do teshuva because they have too much 'Jewish' blood on their hands; these are the real Erev Rav.

Haim: It won't be a Pesach Seder. It will be more like doing hakafot (circuits) around Yericho, one hakafah (circuit) each day for 6 days and 7 hakafot on the 7th day. Sound familiar? That is precisely what we do during Sukkot. It is anticipatory of the Final Redemption which in many ways will repeat what was done to Yericho so that the Walls would come a tumbling down. In this case we are talking about crumbling the edifice of Olam HaZeh during Sukkot to make way for Yemot HaMashiach.

There is a minor dispute about precisely what the dates were for the circuits around Yericho. It was either during the 7 days of Pesach, or it was immediately after the 7th day of Pesach between the 22nd and the 28th of Nissan, for that 7 day period. I would tend to favor that it started on the first day of Pesach in the afternoon as the text of Yehoshua seems to infer, and then it continued in the early morning of the last 6 days of Pesach (starting on the first day of Chol HaMoed) with the 7 hakafot on the 7th day of Pesach when the Walls of Yericho came tumbling down. The holiness of that battle and its openly miraculous nature seem to fit the theme of Pesach, and since it was at the beginning of our history here in Eretz Yisrael, it would seem to infer that the conquest of the Land began on Pesach, not immediately after the 7th day of Pesach as some believe. Now at the end of history our final conquest of the Land would be during Sukkot in the same miraculous manner, one hakafah for each of the first 6 days of Sukkot and 7 hakafot on the 7th day, Hoshana Rabbah when the edifice of Olam HaZeh comes a tumbling down.

I realize we have discussed this, but even the non-Jews are admitting the obvious: "During the very last month of his presidency, Barack Obama has decided to launch an all-out attack on Israel. On Friday, Barack Obama’s decision to allow UN Security Council resolution 2334 to pass without a veto was the greatest betrayal of Israel in modern American history, and now there are reports that the Obama administration is planning to introduce another resolution that would officially recognize a Palestinian state. *****Throughout his eight years in the White House, many have accused Obama of being the most anti-Israel president in our history, and *****now he is proving them right.”

AND THIS: 10 Times That God Has Hit America With A Major Disaster After The U.S. Attempted To Divide The Land Of Israel "Because Barack Obama has cursed Israel at the United Nations, America is now under a curse. Friday’s stunning betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine. Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States. “

No. The majority of LEGAL voters voted Trump not Hillary. Hillary had millions of illegal immigrants and deceased people vote for her cutesy of the Democratic Party's political machine.

In any event Trump ran his campaign to maximize his electorial votes, not majority votes. Majority votes don't win, only majority electorial votes win the presidential race because of how the system was set up Constitutionally. It was set up to protect the smaller states from being politically controlled by larger states and to provide a second way to prevent unqualified persons from becoming president if voters voted for such a person and it came to light after the vote was counted (clearly the system failed to eliminate Obama who is likely not a natural born citizen as his father was a Kenyan and he was born with duel British/American citizenship, Kenya being part of the British empire at the time of Obama's birth. Only natural born citizens are qualified to be President. This of course is not to mention the problems with Obama's likely fraudulent birth certificate which may finally become problem for him after Trump is inaugurated).

Had it been majority wins, Trump would have run his campaign strategically differently, concentrated his efforts & resources differently, and he has said as much. Trump would likely have won the popular vote on its face (I already said he likely won the popular vote anyway if illegal votes & voters from the grave are not included) had be done so. In this system majority votes don't count and no one should complain about the winner not getting them because everyone knows the rules or should know them.

Having watched street interviews and interviews on campuses of Americans I am amazed at how ignorant people in the US are about politics and politicians in their country and how ignorant they are of what goes on internationally. I have even seen political commentators say stupid things showing up their ignorance.

Many Americans sympathise with the State of Israel and wish it well. Some Americans resent US money being given to Israel. I believe most Americans do not realize their country has until now also provided financial aid and military training to Israel's enemies (let's see what happens after Trump takes power). I also believe most Americans do not know US money given to Israel must only be spent on MADE IN USA military equipment etc to support the US military economy and that Israel also pays by providing intelligence to the US and by being subject to do as instructed by the US. Israel's 'good Will' gestures of releasing terrorists, the moritorium on building in Judea & Samaria, apologising to Turkey etc were all made in the USA (price of US aid and goodwill and who knows what threats) and showed the world that Israel is not a fully sovereign nation but is partly a vessel of the USA. It also exposed the USA as a modern colonial power, being the very opposite of what it claims to be.

In short, and with respect, you are being too simplistic about the people of America. The ignorance there is astounding but there seem to be a lot of good people there who want to do the right thing by Israel, want to see Israel thrive, and who in fact actually love and care about the Jews. In support of what I am saying, I note that Obama had to wait to act so openly act against Israel in the UN because of the domestic polical backlash.

That has barely wavered in the last 12 months. I would assume that those being polled by Fox are legal aliens and US citizens.... 52% FOR Obama along with the 70% of American Jews FOR Obama. I simply face the facts that the America of the 1980s where the majority was still moral no longer exists as a majority. They exist as a sizable minority and in some redstates are still in the majority. The deterioration in the last 35 years has been rather marked.

Midrash Hallelujah

Tamar is the promised Land. Er is the first Beit HaMikdash, and there was problem with the House, and Er was killed by Hashem. Onan is the second Beit HaMikdash, and there was problem with the House, and Onan was killed by Hashem. Er and Onan did not fully know Tamar. After a long time of waiting, the Land fills up with people. And the world discusses. Who are they?

And the people of the world come to Hashem to complain. And Hashem must agree with the world, they are illegal children. It becomes very frightening in the Land. But then, at the height of tension, Tamar secretly shows the sign of the seal, and the hidden knowledge of Hashem, and the hidden light, of Chanukkah. At that point, Hashem turns around and exclaims: My children! Hallelujah!

Maurice speaking, from Paris, France. Hi everybody, I am very excited that Mashiah is at our doorstep !

Just a few ideas i'd like to share, after reading reb Dov's post and your comments :
* Mashiah ben Yossef will not die : as stated by Rabbi Hille de Shklov Rivlin in the Sefer Kol Hator, the Vilna Gaon did pray for MBY not be murdered By armilous.
And the Vila Gaon confirmed his prayer has been accepted, and the death decree has been turned into sufferings of MBY (just like Yossef Hatsadik had to suffer). The Vilna Gaon told his own students he was the MBY of his time, the 1st of the era of the heel of Mashiah.
I think Meir and Reb Dov could confirm these points since they wrote several times about that great book.
* Benyamin Netanyahou is a direct descendant of the Vilna Gaon (yes, Bibi said so this very year in the newspapers, I think I posted the link in this blog befor last summer). This goes in what Reb Dov wrote that Bibi could be the actual MBY (and the last if I undestood properly),
* Reuven Rivlin, Pdt of Israel, himself is a direct descendant of Vilna Gaon's student and cousin Rabbi Hillel de Shklov Rivlin who actually wrote the sefer Kol Hator, 7 generations before,
So it's pretty strange that Vilna Gaon and his student gave birth to Bibi and reunven Rivlin..

* The Greeks & Esav's head. I learned a tradition that Edom is like a body that had no head, so Edom took the Greeks' head (Lavan), which means culture and values (their Gods, ways of living, wisdom, science etc... all the spiritual and ideological frame of Western are rooted in ancient Greece civilisation).
Remember the biblical father of Greece was Lavan, who did teach our worst ennemies :Amalek, Bilaam etc...

* Esav's head was buried in Kever haMakhpela when Dan did cut his head.

So I think now what is happening could be :
1 Obama and Kerry's Greek head has already been rejected by the US people,
2 Trump is a pure Essav person (his temper, redfaced...), but certainly a good one, I mean a Ben Noah who look for the truth.

So now Essav's head is no more Greece but Essav's one.
And if Trump does well, he will be allowed to be saved and join our fathers in Makhpela, and with him the good part of Essav, that has to be saved (I mean USA, and probably a part of the western world with it).

Hazak véemats !

David: I am not sure what you are talking about. Most of the investigations against Netanyahu are just beginning. A few older ones will end with finding that he did no wrong. But even today in Yisrael HaYom, it says that another investigation is just beginning. The real Erev Rav Left cannot stand that he is PM and that their chance at being popular amongst their Edomite friendly horse manure in Europe and the US, like the spiritual high school teenagers that they still are, is fading away as the UNSC condemns and condemns them for being associated at the hip with the G-d's Holy nation. So if they could not bring him down at the ballot box, they will continue to investigate more and more suspected corruption so that they can finally be rid of him. One investigation will begin it seems while other older investigations are concluded. And if this new investigation concludes with acquitting him of wrongdoing, even another investigation will likely commence.

You have to realize that the Left Coast leftists cannot sleep at night knowing that so many in the world hate their guts. As Tzippy Livni the Witch of Eindor said, "The most important thing in life is to be popular again." But with 2/3rds of humanity now at menuval status, her desire for G-d's firstborn nation is impossible to achieve.

Correct EM. This is not the Shmittah or the Yovel year. It is the year AFTER the Yovel year. There are two reasons for the delay of one or two years, two very important reasons that go into the category of mitigating the suffering of the righteous during the 9 months:

1. The wicked still had some merit in both the Shmittah 5775 and Yovel 5776 year until Shavuot 5776, the beginning of the 50th years since the Summer of Promiscuous sex starting in San Franfreako, California (also the 6 Day War too). So the middle third of Edomite culture was still above or at the 49th level of impurity. Any merit by those who have the opportunity to cause us pain simply leads to them being able to inflict more pain than necessary. Witness the Ba'al Kerry's fortune in life after saving the holy Jewish life of Meir "Chic" Hecht, Senator from Nevada, originally from Cape Girardeau, MO whose brother was Rush Limbaugh III's nextdoor neighbor growing up.

This way as of THIS Tevet, they have no merit whatsoever so that our suffering during the 9 months will only be a result of our own sins, not the merits of those sent to cause us pain. This is why Yonah HaNavi tried to run to Tarshish when he was told to prophesy in Nineveh. He did not want to give the capital city of the Assyrian Empire merit to cause Israel, the Northern Kingdom, pain and suffering. So here at the end we see that the nations of the world have no merit. Two thirds of the world's population is at best at the spiritual level of Zombie. So that one or two year delay will make these next nine months tolerable. And lo and behold, Nineveh is finally being destroyed after all ...... bringing to mind Bilaam HaRasha's last prophesy about the end of Malkhut Edom:

כד וְצִים מִיַּד כִּתִּים, וְעִנּוּ אַשּׁוּר וְעִנּוּ-עֵבֶר; וְגַם-הוּא, עֲדֵי אֹבֵד. 24 But ships (or a Naval fleet) shall come from the coast of Kittim (Targum Yonatan identifies this with the Bosporus), and they shall afflict Assyria, and shall afflict Eber (the Hebrews), and he also shall come to destruction. more later.....

Both these represented a threat to Israel, yet the self hating Jews of B'Tselem see to it that Elor Azaria is turned into a criminal for making sure a threat is neutralised.

5771 massive shortage of rain, failing crops

The second reason for the one year delay from 5776 according to a neighbor of mine, who learns Qabalah regularly and is a firstrate scholar, is that 5776 was not a normal Yovel year in the Redemption process. The year 5678 because of the Balfour Declaration and PM David Lloyd Gog's conquest of Yerushalayim from the Turks was a Yovel year that played a key role in returning Klal Yisrael to to her territorial inheritance. The next Yovel year 5727 completed most of the physical transfer of the Land of Israel to the possession of the Jewish people during the 6 Day War. Next in line was 5776. It was the year of the Brit Milah of Mashiach ben David. There were three noteworthy Britot Milah that year associated with either the 25th of Adar Sheini and the 25th of Elul. On the 24th of Adar Sheini, Ivanka "Yehudit" Trump-Kushner gave her son a Brit Milah. The next day on the 25th of Adar Sheini, Meir Ettinger gave his son a Brit Milah from a Shabak prison cell for the Yordei Duma, and named his son Netzach Binyamin after the Sefirah of Netzach and his murdered uncle Binyamin Kahane zt"l. On the 25th of Elul the three Qlipot of the Erev rav, that are removed in every Brit Milah when three layers of skin of the Orlah or completely removed, died when Shimon Peres died. He represented all three irredeemable Qlipot of the Erev Rav. So it was the year of the Brit Milah, but that did not result in Mashiachzeit by the end of the year. So why? Because the coming of Mashiach requires far more than returning of Eretz Yisrael to the possession of the Jewish people. The Coming of Mashiach is the End of the Age of Olam HaZeh It is the dawn of the new Era of the Kingdom of G-d on earth, not a simple transfer of ownership of Holy Land but an infusion into the World the Holy Soul of the Profundity of the World of Truth. So according to may friend the "Generations of Adam" when Mankind was supposed to rule over this terrestrial world as G-d rules in Heaven (as it says in Psalm 115), was supposed to end in the year 5776. This would mean that the number years where Man was allowed to make a mess out of this earthly realm would last 5776 years. But in there lies the problem. There was one such year where Mankind's rule of his earthly home was taken away from him. It was in the year of the Great Flood 1656 AM (After the Sin of Adam). In that year and specifically in that year, G-d ruled on earth as He does in Heaven.... even if He ruled with an iron fist that year. One thing for sure, the year 1656 was not a year where Mankind was allowed to make a mess out of the Bri'ah placed into his hands. So at the end of history, HaShem added on one more year where Mankind could continue to rule that year and could continue to make a mess out of what was placed into his hands..... It seems that in 5777, Mankind's time is up.

Heroine of Israel. She was a keini, a descendant of Yitro. There is a dispute amongst our sages if the descendants of Yitro converted to Judaism. The Druze say that they are descendants of the ancient Keinites.

But as we know, this Yael Trump converted to Judaism. So she is both Ya'el and a Yehudiya or a Yehudit. Normally consistent with other words of nationality, Yehudiya would be the adjective form while Yehudit would be the noun.

All those Jooos who voted for him twice are either as evil as he is or are moral imbeciles on the most rudimentary level. And the vast majority of them, those 75% who again voted for Hillary or Jill Stein and for Bernie in the Primaries, have influenced by making worse the perverse moral situation in the blue states where they reside. And some like Ruth Buzzy Ginsburg have enough national authority to pervert America on a national level. Ok end of Speech, but it is 100% true.

And don't give me the tinok shenishba argument in their favor. That applies to lack of Shabbat or kashrut observance, areas of Torah life above and beyond one's lack of human decency. Being like a tinok shenishba is not an excuse for exercising public perverse moral judgement on a rudimentary level.

The J Accuse Conference is in Paris a mere five days before Obama leave the Oval Office.

First I brought this article to add fact to the discussion of her name and deeds. Second, what you call "saga" is not a saga and the final and what authority are you referring to which has decided in her favor? There is too much speculation in the media what Trump will do and not do. The same goes for his son-in-law and his daughter. Only the deeds after January 20 counts and thus time will show and H' will judge. Let us wait and see if Trump is "Moshiach" or "Snake", c.f. my input on the Gematria of Trump's name.

From Rav Nachman Kahana's letter to Bibi, bringing up his yichus mentioned in Zecharia 12 by those who are in aveilut for him:

As a son of the tribe of Levi (third son of Ya’akov and Leah) you are endowed with leadership qualities as was Levi when he took the initiative to punish the city of Shechem for violating their sister Dina. The healthy and proud segments of our nation will stand by you in all your initiatives to protect our honor and our rights to HaShem’s promised land against all those who plan, scheme, plot or intend to erode or diminish our religious and historic rights to this land.

I want to strengthen Dov's message and wishes with two videos. One with a message from Rabbi Meir Kahana and one from Moshe Feiglin to the haters and enemies of Israel, to the nations of the world and to Obama

My interpretation regarding the gematria of Trump's name:

"Mashiach" = He will usher in the Mashiach ben David (he may fulfill a Eliyahu like role)

"Snake" = He will subdue evil as the redeemable "head" of Edom (Esav's original mission)

This is based on the understanding of Rabbi Kessin, who I largely agree with. As I see it, according to Ovadiah, there will be no survivors of the house (body) of Esav, because they will either be destroyed for unrepentant wickedness, or follow the head which will cleave to Israel, and eventually join the congregation of Hashem.

Hi Dov,

Could I please ask you to post this link to my latest post? It is kind of relevant, considering everything occurring this week.

Thanks and Shabbat Shalom. Everybody have a meaningful 10th of Tevet fast!

Anonymous at 1:28 am - when you say join the cong. of H' - what it means is that they will all become Bnei Noach and live according to the 7 Laws of Noach but not join the Jewish people; as we will remain the nation of Israel and there will be no more converts within our midst, and the nations will live as Bnei Noach in their respective lands!

Trump "the Moshiach" or "the Snake" - cont.

Donald Trump is looking more and more like a godsend to the Jewish right and a disaster for those on the left. But this may be a case of "be careful what you wish for, lest it come true."

"Rabbi Lau notes in his response that the Chief Rabbinate and the Rabbinical Courts are two separate institutions, and therefore the Chief Rabbi does not have any direct authority to overturn a Rabbinical Court's decision."

So are Neshamas'. My point is that the Rabbinical court disagreed with the Chief Rabbi and the Chief Rabbi is NOT the authority to decide.
