The "Light" of Mashiach Courtesy of the Koreas Leaving the Twilight Zone

For several years now, basically covering the years of this blog's lifespan, I have written several posts about North and South Korea being in the Twilight Zone of our halakhic international dateline and the End of Days implications of their placement there.  As Rav Levi Sa'adia Nachmani zt"l said years ago. that the Great light of Mashiach will come from the following two cryptic verses from Parshat Ha'Azinu (Devarim 32:21-22):

כא  הֵם קִנְאוּנִי בְלֹא-אֵל,  {ר}  כִּעֲסוּנִי בְּהַבְלֵיהֶם;  {ס}  וַאֲנִי אַקְנִיאֵם בְּלֹא-עָם,  {ר}  בְּגוֹי נָבָל אַכְעִיסֵם.  {ס} 21 They have roused Me to jealousy with a no-god (atheism); they have provoked Me with their vanities (nonsensical pursuits); and I will rouse them to jealousy with a non-people (the PaLeStinians who are not a nation, just an Arab collection of  Squatters from Jordan and Egypt since the P(h).L.S(h). root in Hebrew means "to squat on someone else's land"  This is true in all Semitic languages by the way.  The derogatory name for Ethiopian Jews in the Amharic language with the same P(h).L.S(h). root,  given them by Ethiopian Xtians, was FaLaShah or Squatters in their midst.); I will provoke them with a vile nation (Tzarfat or France).
כב  כִּי-אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי,  {ר}  וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית;  {ס}  וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ,  {ר}  וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים.  {ס} 22 For a fire (a nuclear blast) is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world (She'ol or Seoul, South Korea), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.

Now Rav Nachmani seemed to insinuate that the North Korean nuclear program MAY first be used against Seoul, South Korea or against Japan or even against the American Pacific Coast, but its final target address would at least be an attempt to nuke Eretz Yisrael.  So over the course of the past week we see this, lo and behold, Israel had to bomb a convoy of hi tech missiles from North Korea that were being transported in Syria to Hezbollah!    So if the missile and high grade fissionable uranium and plutonium technology, which is being produced in North Korea and disbursed to their Axis of Evil ally in Persia, is now being disbursed to Syria and Hezbollah, we are right now not far away from at least an attempt to actualize Rav Levi Nachmani's nightmare scenario.  These are telling moments and telling times while our Supreme Court focuses its evil efforts on the destruction of Jewish life in Yesha, the rest of the world makes no distinctions and focuses in on murdering all of us.  But alas they will not succeed.  G-d is overseeing this last and final ingathering of exiles which began in earnest in several stages over the last 100 years (1917, 1948, 1967, 1990-1991).  The last one was predicted by the Vilna Gaon.  The final push to ingather the exiles of Israel would take place 3/4 of the way through the 6th Millennium in the years 5750 and 5751 (1990- 1991) to fulfill the verse in Yeshayahu 27:13 that with the Teki'ah blast of a Great Shofar, the Lost ones in the Land of Ashur and the castaways in the Land of Egypt would come on Aliyah.  Since the Lost ones in Ashur were at least in part absorbed by the Khazar tribe, the tenth son of Togarmah (the Turks), who migrated north to form their 500 year kingdom between the Black and Caspian Seas and since the Khazar kingdom did convert en masse to Judaism because of the convincing arguments of Rav Yehudah Almangari (recorded in the Kuzari by Yehudah HaLeivi), and since Khazaria was destroyed by Russia around the year 1240ce dispersing Jews northward into the Pale of Settlement in Russia and the Ukraine mixing in with Ashkenzaic Jews migrating eastward, the ingathering of Russian Jewry which began in 1990 and the ingathering of the castaways from Egypt, Ethiopian Jewry, in Operation Shlomo and Sheba in 1991 were a tremendous fulfillment of this incredible prophesy, right on schedule according to the Vilna Gaon.  This ingathering began the last 250 years BEFORE Yom sheKulo Shabbat too.  According to Sefer HaLeshem, that final ingathering would take a maximum of 40 years so that Techiyah HaMeitim could begin by the year 5790, 40 years after 5750.

In order to continue this post, though, we need to pause for review of the following three posts that I wrote many years ago on this blog.

1.  The Koreas (Are) In the Twilight Zone  from December 31, 2005
2.  North Korea is Emerging from the Twilight Zone from September 17, 2007
3.  The Korean Peninsula is Inching Closer to World War from March 31, 2013

Also ponder the following from the Zohar VaEira 32a:

Zohar 32a continued, after discussing how the Children of Yishmael were given merit for 1300 years, 400 years after the last Tanna, Yehudah HaNassi, wrote down the Mishneh because of the emptiness of Eretz Yisrael.

At that time, a nation from the end of the earth (halakhically determined international dateline) will be aroused against evil Rome and wage war against it for three months. Nations will gather there, and [Rome] will fall into their hands, until all the children of Edom will gather against it [that nation] from all the corners of the world. Then G‑d will be roused against them. This is the meaning of: "For G‑d has a sacrifice in Botzrah"(Yishayahu 34:6). (Botzrah is the city in Iraq controlled by the Shi'ite Arabs at the behest of neighboring Iran. This points to an endtimes alliance between the nation at the edge of the world (N. Korea) and Persia/Iran.) And afterwards, it is written: "That it might take hold of the ends of the earth..." (Job 38:13) He will destroy the descendants of Ishmael from the land, and break all the powers of [all the nations' guardian angels] Above. There will not remain any power of any people on earth, except the power of Israel alone. This is the meaning of "G‑d is your shadow upon your right hand". (Psalms 121:5)

Here, below, is the preceding text for the above excerpt from the Zohar from the Kabbalah On Line website from Chabad.org:

Come and see: for four hundred years (after the year 4000 when Eretz Yisrael was being emptied of Jews), the Heavenly minister of the children of Ishmael stood and begged before G‑d. He said to Him, 'whoever is circumcised has a portion in Your name'. He (G-d) said to him, 'it is so'. He (Yishmael's Minister) said to Him, 'Behold Ishmael who is circumcised. Why does he not have a portion in You like Isaac?' He said to him, 'It is not so, the one (Isaac) was circumcised properly and according to the full requirements, while the other was not so' [as Ishmael does not fulfill “periyah/uncovering of a fourth layer of skin after three are removed”]. Moreover, the ones (Children of Isaac) cleave to Me as is specified on the eighth day, while the others (Children of Ishmael) are distanced from me for many days[being circumcised only at age 13]. He [Ishmael's guardian angel] said to Him, 'But still in all, since he is circumcised, would he not have a good reward for this?'
[R. Hiyya then says] Woe is to the time that Ishmael was born into the world and was circumcised. What did G‑d do [to appease Ishmael]? He distanced the children of Ishmael from supernal cleaving and gave them [only] a portion below in the Holy Land (for 1300 years or 26 Jubilee cycles, 100 years (or more exactly 98 years) for each year when Ishmael was circumcised) on account of their circumcision.
And in the future, the children of Ishmael are destined to rule over the Holy Land for a long time when it is empty from anything, like their circumcision which is empty and imperfect. And they will prevent the children of Israel from returning to their place until the reward for the merit of the children of Ishmael reaches completion (26 Jubilee cycles of control of Eretz Yisrael in the merit of his imperfect circumcision).
The children of Ishmael [i.e. the Arab nations] will (THEN After their 1300 year reward) cause great wars in the world and the children of Edom will gather against them and wage war against them, one on the sea (First Persian Gulf War as lead by Gog H.W. Bush, Sr.), one on the dry land (2nd Persian Gulf War as lead by Gog ben Gog W Bush, Jr.), and one near Jerusalem (to be determined). And they [the children of Edom]will rule over them [the children of Ishmael], but the Holy Land will not be given over to the children of Edom. [The children of Edom is the Christian West, for Edom is Rome (see Num. 24:19Rashi) and Rome signifies Greece-Rome and the Roman Catholic Church, the foundations of Western Civilization]
Then, the following from above:
At that time, a nation from the end of the earth (halakhically determined international dateline) will be aroused against evil Rome and wage war against it for three months. Nations will gather there, and [Rome] will fall into their hands, until all the children of Edom will gather against it [that nation] from all the corners of the world. Then G‑d will be roused against them. This is the meaning of: "For G‑d has a sacrifice in Botzrah"(Yishayahu 34:6). (Botzrah is the city in Iraq controlled by the Shi'ite Arabs at the behest of neighboring Iran. This points to an endtimes alliance between the nation at the edge of the world (N. Korea) and Persia/Iran.) And afterwards, it is written: "That it might take hold of the ends of the earth..." (Job 38:13) He will destroy the descendants of Ishmael from the land, and break all the powers of [all the nations' guardian angels] Above. There will not remain any power of any people on earth, except the power of Israel alone. This is the meaning of "G‑d is your shadow upon your right hand". (Psalms 121:5)

This post is a work in process, but it does require that the three previous posts be studied and understood in light of the page of Zohar VeEira 32a from above.  I will continue with this post in a few days.

While North Korea technically fits the bill as "a nation from the end of the earth" given its alliance with Iran, would it not be more logical for the "nation from the end of the earth" to refer to a competing / rising superpower like China or a Sino-Russian alliance composed of the former as well as ex-superpower Russia?

One could even argue that the "nation from the end of the earth" is actually Russia using the international date line - UTC+12:00 via the Russian Far Eastern territories of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug and Kamchatka Krai, along with its status as a former superpower.

Thanks Gentlemen. In my continuing post on this one, I will show why that "nation at the end of the earth" is North Korea, not China. I do recognize that Russia and Persia come as the unit that I spoke of before on this blog named Dubiel, the Power of the Bear from Daniel Chapter 7 as spoken about by the Vilna Gaon. So When medrashim speak of Persia being the antagonist at the End of Days, substitute Persia with Russia and Iran and possibly the Kurds, The Final Alliance of the Three Bears that come as one conquering unit in the Final War against "The West" of Edom. As far as China is concerned, we shall see. China is the ancient nation of Sin, one of the ten original Canaanite nations when Cana'an's descendents are first listed in Bereishit. From this we learn, China is a "slave" nation who serves the descendants of Shem including Edom itself. Wages in China, for instance, are accurately and not just figuratively called "slave wages". How Sin, the ancient nation destined to serve as a Slave nation, rebels at this juncture in history, needs to be researched further. Or we will soon know.

China and North Korea are together under the same End of Days scenario, the Dragon. This Dragon is going to give its power to the Beast, i.e. Yishmael, that is now primarily Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, etc. Later on Saudi Arabia will acquire nuclear weapons. The great battles are ahead, this year 5777 will see tremendous upheaval. But first, Hashem will punish the world with natural destructions. They will start bekarov mamash.
The evil represented by China and N Korea will eventually destroy those nations that directly help the enemies of Yisrael. The trustful partner of Yisrael is India where there is no antisemitism therefor that nation will survive whereas all the enemies of Yisrael will disappear just as the Amalekites did.
This is the End of Days scenario in a nutshell as pertaining to Rav Dov's post.

The Canaanite Slave nation known as modern day China has the unusual status of both supplying cheap goods to Walmarts over America because of their slave wages and buying up all of America's excess and growing National debt so that Americans can continue to afford to buy cheap Chinese goods at Walmart. It is a very effective and almost comical vicious circle.

It is a case of the Slave becoming the Master by becoming the Lender to his Master. Everyone knows that Borrowers in the end serve their Masters the Lenders, especially since there is no way that the Borrowers will ever pay off their loans. China will turn out to be the way that HaShem totally laughs at the Western nations, showing them that the nation whom they thought served them with cheap labor and cheap goods has now become their Master.

Shemot 30:12
יב כִּי תִשָּׂא אֶת-רֹאשׁ בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, לִפְקֻדֵיהֶם, וְנָתְנוּ אִישׁ כֹּפֶר נַפְשׁוֹ לַיהוָה, בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם; וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה בָהֶם נֶגֶף, בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם. 12 'When thou (Raises the Heads) "takest the sum" of the children of Israel, according to their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.

Actually Moshe is being given the total number of Jews prior to the Sin of the Golden Calf. Raise the heads means Count the heads. Which heads? The first letter of each tribe! And then multiply by 1000 since the Torah told us that 600 Aleph left Mitzraim on foot. Aleph can also mean head as in the head of a Bull or an Aloof, which is a General who leads 1000 troops.
From Reuven we get Reish which is 200 for 200,000
From Shimon we get a Shin which is 300 for 300,000
From Yehudah we get a Yud which is 10 for 10,000
From Yissachar we get a Yud which is 10 for 10,000
From Zevulun we get a Zayin which is 7 for 7,000
From Dan we get a Dalet which is 4 for 4,000
From Naftali we get a Nun which is 50 for 50,000
From Gad we get a Gimmel which is 3 for 3,000
From Asher we get Aleph which is 1 for 1,000
From Yosef we get Yud which is 10 for another 10,000
From Binyamin we get Bet which is 2 for 2,000

Levi was counted separately. So Leivi is not included in the above count. So the total is 597,000 which is 3000 short of 600,000! HaShem knew that 3,000 would die directly because of the Cheit haEigal! So in His count there were 597,000 Jews at Sinai. From Me'am Lo'ez.

Re: Seoul, South Korea

It seems odd that of all places, Seoul, South Korea should be targeted for a nuclear Armageddon. It seems even odder that South Korea has great respect for the Jews and has taken up the study of Talmud (see links below or search it).

Some of their corporations such as Samsung, Hyundai and Kia are household names and earn them the respect of many a Jew and non-Jew alike. So Israel and South Korea could start a mutual admiration society. There are many parallels that can be drawn between South Korea and Israel.

Maybe the verse וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית means “up to” but not “including”? While Seoul may sound like the biblical “She'ol” – it is also (at least in the language of the western world) – reminiscent of Soul (or the spiritual center). Seoul is literally E-Soul – the electronic soul? Their phones and cars linking us together, reunifying our soul sparks...

The tearing (“kria”) of the garments (that we do in mourning), is above the heart. Does South Korea allude to just below (south) of the tear (kria), i.e. a heart of sorts? No intent here to detract from Jerusalem or Israel as a spiritual center, maybe just recognizing some sort of “parallel universe”?

There’s something here more than just coincidental. Maybe this blog’s author or some of its contributors could shed some light on this?

To be more exact, there were 600,000 Jews at Sinai to receive the Torah on Shavuot 2448. 40 days later on the 17th of Tamuz that number was reduced by 3000 because the Levi'im executed 3000 Jews for outright worshiping the Golden Calf as an Avodah Zarah. The remaining 597,000 only thought that the Divine Presence would come down in between the horns of the calf so that they were not engaging in outright Avodah Zarah. They could therefore potentially be forgiven without being executed since they really wanted to bow down to the Shekhinah while She was dwelling between the horns of the Golden Calf. From the 17th of Tamuz until the 10th of Tishrei (Yom Kippur 2449) were 80 more days AFTER the Day of the 17th of Tamuz itself. There were 40 days where G-d refused to listen to petitions for forgiveness from the 18th of Tamuz until the 29th of Av followed by the 40 days of penitence or Repentance from the 30th of Av until the 10th of Tishrei (Yom Kippur). Some say that Av in 2448 only had 29 days while Elul had 30 days so that Moshe actually ascended the third time for the 40 days of Penitence on the 1st of Elul. During that 80 day period of time from the 18th of Tamuz through Yom Kippur, the adult population of Israel (not including Leivi) grew from 597,000 to 603,550. The Machtzit HaShekel was donated as commanded on the 11th of Tishrei 2449.

Tishbi: I agree about the citizens of Seoul, South Korea. I pointed that out near the end of Comments on the previous post. They seem to have tremendous merit at this time in history. As a percentage of their population, they seem to be learning more Talmud than Jews learn in a place like Tel Aviv. At least a very high percentage of their population shows respect for those who learn Talmud. They should be, at the very least, highly appreciated for holding our Oral Torah in such high esteem. Perhaps this is Divinely orchestrated to prevent Un in the North from achieving his nuclear fantasy of what he would like to do to the South?

Betzalel: Yes, Rome could refer specifically to the R.C. Church, or it might refer to the "Two Romes" of the modern era, Washington DC and Istanbul/Constantinople aka NATO. Or it might refer to "The West" or Western Civilization.

The connotation Rome refers to Western civilisation overall. It doesn't contain Eastern Europe where their civilisation is mixed with Asian elements. The rift between Western and Eastern Europe is obvious just by looking at the history.
Therefore whatever applies to Rome as related to Edom will be relevant to Western civilisation only.
The emergence of Yisrael in the olam haba will construct a new kind of civilisation envisaged as an achievement of our Mashiach. Rome will disappear, Yishmael is entirely gone. Right now we see that Hashem is using Yishmael against Western civilisation, the Eastern Europe is unaffected by it. That proofs that Eastern Europe isn't connected to Rome and its destiny.

I will say this. It is no accident that when any Western or even Russian (Meshech, Tuval, and Magog) invasion force found itself going into conquest in Afghanistan, the Yusufzai (Sons of Yosef) Pashtunim never lost a war there. It was decreed from ancient times that the Sons of Yosef as an independent military force would never fall to defeat in battle against the Sons of Esav.

Dror: The four metaled figure in Nebuchadnezzar's dream told over and interpreted in Sefer Daniel by Daniel himself tells us that Edom has two legs and two feet of iron (Edom or Rome) mired with clay (Yishmael). Since the 4th Century ce when Constantine was the Emperor of the Roman Empire, the Roman Empire was divided into east and west. The Western foot in Rome arguably has moved across the Atlantic to the National seat of the former Roman Catholic colony of Maryland. One Francis Pope, (no kidding here), established his farm and estate along the Potomac River by calling it Rome, Maryland on the precise site of the National Mall in Washington DC. where sits the Capitol Bldg., the legislative seat of American Govt., the Washington Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. The Eastern foot of Nebuch's statue is still where it always has been since the 4th Century ce, in Istanbul/Constantinople, 500 years ago miring its Roman Iron with Yishmaelic clay. The Western foot for the most part until this generation has resisted large scale Yishmaelization. So HaShem had to "create" the endtimes leader of Rome, Maryland who was half-Xtian and half-Muslim (half Rome and half Yishmael) who alone for two Presidential terms personified the fusion of Edom with Yishmael as one... No need to mention his filthy name here. Just call him #44, the Gematriah of Dam (Blood). So in a sense Edom obviously spans the East/ West divide even if the official Edomite religion of the West is Roman Catholicism and of the East is Greek Orthodoxy. They are both Pesel (statue or figurine) worshiping Trinitarians. At least the Protestants, to their tremendous credit, got rid of the P'salim.

So yes, Western Rome and Eastern Rome are two independent legs joined at the hips since the 4th Century, with the 4th Century CE and earlier corresponding to the hips and pelvis of Nebuchadnezzar's statue, going all the way back to Pompey who brought in the Roman triumvirate on the side of one Chashmonaic brother (Yochanan Horkunus) to defeat his brother (Aristobulus II) in 63 bce, and then never left. The Roman Empire ruled undivided in Eretz Yisrael, signifying the Galut that we had just entered as Roman or Edomite. It actually was divided before Constantine in 284 or 285ce by Diocletian, but it was Constantine who actually made the eastern half of the empire at least as important if not more important than the Western half and who decreed that the Religion of the Empire would be Roman Catholicism at the Council of Nicea in 325 ce. The Roman Empire was briefly united again during his reign but quickly split in two when his sons came to power in Rome and Constantinople upon his death in 337ce. So from 337ce onwards, the two legs of Roman rule spread downwards from the hips. So yes, when one leg hurts, the other one may have seemed just fine, but everyone knows that the two legs usually act in coordination with each other. Even today, you cannot have a North Atlantic Military Alliance without having bases in Turkey.

I'm so glad you spoke of the Pastunim. I found them and spent many many days and nights researching about them. I have the same fascination with them as I have a tremendous soft spot for Yosef, son of Yaakov. I didn't realize my connection until I read your text. They are actually more than one cohesive group. Some in the highest mountain area have remained 'pure' in their observance, have not married out, and observe some mitzvos. Plus their women are separated during that time. They know they are descendants of Yehudim. The other factions are talibanis, I believe. This whole subject is so fascinating.

I will have to do a post on Antipater the Edomite, to open up a deeper understanding into the linchpin between the Chashmonaic Dynasty and the Initial moments of the Roman Exile (Galut Edom). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antipater_the_Idumaean Antipater is the key to understanding why the last 2100 years have been part of this final Galut Edom.

Menahot 64b:
Our Rabbis taught: When the Kings of the Hasmonean house fought one another,8 Hyrcanus was
outside and Aristobulus within [the city wall]. Each day [those that were within] used to let down [to
the other party] denars in a basket, and haul up [in return] animals for the Daily Offerings. An old
man there, who was learned in Greek wisdom, spoke with them in Greek wisdom,9 saying. ‘As long
as they carry on the Temple service they will never be delivered into your hands’. On the morrow
they let down denars in a basket and hauled up a pig. When it reached halfway up the wall, it stuck
its claws into the wall, and the land of Israel was shaken over a distance of four hundred parasangs
by four hundred parasangs. At that time they declared, ‘Cursed be the man who rears pigs and cursed
be the man who teaches his son Greek wisdom!’

The pig in this Gemorrah is Antipater the Edomite who was born a slave to Chashmonaim kings to become the one whom they ultimately served by serving his son, King Herod. This was the beginning of Malkhut Edom.

כג וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה לָהּ, שְׁנֵי גֹיִים בְּבִטְנֵךְ, וּשְׁנֵי לְאֻמִּים, מִמֵּעַיִךְ יִפָּרֵדוּ; וּלְאֹם מִלְאֹם יֶאֱמָץ, וְרַב יַעֲבֹד צָעִיר. 23 And the LORD said unto her: Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

Yes, this blessing from Yitchak Avinu to Esav, the embittered, because Ya'akov had already taken his blessing, describes the life of Antipater HaAdomi.

לט וַיַּעַן יִצְחָק אָבִיו, וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו: הִנֵּה מִשְׁמַנֵּי הָאָרֶץ, יִהְיֶה מוֹשָׁבֶךָ, וּמִטַּל הַשָּׁמַיִם, מֵעָל. 39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him: Behold, of the fat places of the earth shall be thy dwelling, and of the dew of heaven from above;
מ וְעַל-חַרְבְּךָ תִחְיֶה, וְאֶת-אָחִיךָ תַּעֲבֹד; וְהָיָה כַּאֲשֶׁר תָּרִיד, וּפָרַקְתָּ עֻלּוֹ מֵעַל צַוָּארֶךָ. 40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and thou shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt break loose, that thou shalt shake his yoke from off thy neck.

And then there is another detail that many might possibly overlook about the life of Antipater and his heir to the throne of Judea AFTER Rome was invited in, Herod the Great. Notice whom Antipater married, and who was therefore Herod's mother. He married Cypros, a Nabataean woman of royal descent. Does anyone know who the Nabataeans were? .... The answer is that they were the nation that descended from Yishmael's firstborn son, Navaioth, yes the one who gave his sister Basemath in marriage to the original Edomite himself, Esav! When Esav wanted to chase down Ya'akov to kill him for stealing his blessing, he went to Yishmael to form a pact through marriage to his daughter to together chase down Ya'akov to kill him. It was a plot born in hell. Yet, Yishmael dies before Esav could marry his daughter. So it is Nevaioth who hands Basemath over to Esav in marriage in lieu of his father Yishmael who had just died. So here we have an example of the original Edomite at the beginning of the Edomite exile marrying Navaioth's daughter, albeit not his sister.....

And this brings us to our day, doesn't it? The last detail mentioned says that Antipater married a daughter (or princess) of Nevaioth and not Nevaioth's sister. So how about parallelism, how about the other wives of Esav? Esav had three wives. One of them was the sister of Nevaioth who bore him one son. One of the wives was Adah the Hittite who bore Esav another son, Eliphaz. And the third wife was Ohalibamah the Hivite, daughter of two daddies, who bore him three children. When Esav introduces Ohalibamah to his father and mother he calls her Yehudit bat Be'eri the Hittite. So he pretended before his mom and dad that his wife would become the Yehudit (the reincarnation of Ya'el bat Chever haKeini) who killed the Greek General Holofernes by putting him to sleep with salty milk products and wine.... salty milk products. Think that one through. Who is the number one and two milk producer in the world? But notice while the original Esav actually pretended to marry Yehudit, the one at the End of Days who can repent of Esav Soneh eth Ya'akov ALSO married a wife who gave him three children along with two other wives who bore him one child each, but it is NOT the wife with three children who became Yehudit (or Ya'el) the Yehudia, but it was the daughter of that wife (one of the three children) who became that Yehudit that Esav himself claimed to have married! Now think this through. Take a sleeping pill, and get back to me in the morning.

The Trump Administration presented Israel with a new proposal that it should freeze all construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria during Trump envoy Jason Greenblatt's visit last week, Channel 2 reported.

The proposal also called for limiting construction in eastern Jerusalem, according to the report.

The Cabinet rejected the American proposal.

I do not know if this is the correct place to air this opinion.
But the terror attack on Parliament yesterday leaves serious questions about UK security.
We were told that special forces were patrolling the streets in plain clothes, and that more armed police than ever were on patrol.
But the fact remains that a man managed to drive along a pavement adjacent to a main bridge in central London, then run out of his car which had crashed into railings at the side of Parliament, and then was able to run 50 metres round the corner into the Parliament complex and pull a knife on an armed police officer.
In my view that is a serious failing on behalf of the police and security services.
The man should have been surrounded by armed police as soon as he crashed his vehicle.
There should also have been metal bollards between the bridge vehicle and pedestrian sections.

No Western country could stop Yishmael doing acts of terrorism unless these countries withdraw from any human rights organisations. We know now that the Islamic terrorists use the human right international laws to terrorise humanity.
Yisrael won't be able to contain terrorism either without quitting such organisations supporting in fact terrorism worldwide. The terrorists do not have human rights, their behaviour is beastly.
If Britain won't follow this path, the terrorism will continue unabated. There are millions of Muslims in England, the suicidal strategy will terrorise the country indefinitely.
Look at France that is at the mercy of Islamic terrorists. No Western country has managed so far to implement effective measures to stop terrorism, i.e. killing on the spot, mass deportations, etc. Thus, out of fear, the population will convert to Islam. Atomic weapons will fall into their hands.

The 20 Percent

Today, on the 19th of Adar, our grandson Shai, son of our youngest daughter Shulamit and her husband Uri, was inducted into the tank corps of Tzahal, where his older brother Amir is already serving. Shai is named for my father Harav Yechezkel Shraga Kahana, who was born in Tzfat in 1904. What has transpired in the 113 years since my father’s birth, when Eretz Yisrael was under domination of the Ottoman Empire, until the day when Shai became part of a Merkava 4 tank unit, defies the imagination. But one thing is clear, nothing could have happened had it not been for HaShem who loves, aids and abets those Jews who sacrifice in order to serve Am Yisrael.

At this time, so close to Pesach, we should recall that only 20 percent of the Jews merited to leave Egypt. They were the ones who felt compelled to serve HaShem; while the other 80 percent died there because they chose to serve themselves.

Says R' Nir ben Artzi

All countries of the world will be subject to the State of Israel in the Holy Land, step-by-step. There is anti-Semitism in Europe and in the United States, anywhere in the world because of the Jews living there and so that they will immigrate urgently to Israel. From Tasha' ch (1948) the Creator declared to the Jews: the Diaspora is done, the salvation begun - go to the Holy Land! The delays and their waiting are making havoc in the world, outside of Israel.

The refugees and the infiltrators are fleeing to Europe and to the United States to destroy, corrupt and expel the Jews. Natural disasters will continue, many fires, many volcanoes, earthquakes, eruptions floods and tornadoes.

The Messiah is going from place to place and prays to cancel decrees with the people of Israel so that no Jews will be hurt in the Holy land. The Creator reveals publicly the Messiah King step by step so that every Jew will have the time to purify himself, to repent and to be part of the first circuit. It takes a lot of restraint and patience. The Holy One has endless patience. Jews pray to receive the Messiah. All is set, only Bat-Kol is missing that needs to come out and declare our righteous Messiah!

Rouhani is accompanied by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh and a delegation of Iranian officials, both government and private sector.

Rouhani’s meeting with Putin was centered on Syria, “resolutions to terrorism” and various agreements in cooperation trade, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry. The leaders reportedly signed 14 memorandums of understanding in the areas of economy, tourism, energy and more. more …

Debkafile: If the Arab summit opening in Amman Wednesday, March 29 meets the expectations of Washington and Jerusalem, the session will ratify a pivotal initiative for promoting an historic peace process between the Arab world and Israel.

This effort, which matured through five months of mostly secret diplomacy, was launched by Donald Trump in November, shortly after he was elected US President.

DEBKAfile’s sources in Washington and Jerusalem report exclusively that President Trump and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman crafted this proposal at the White House on March 14. more …

My comments: This first hint of a Sunni/Israeli deal came on February 15, with PM Netanyahu’s visit with President Trump.

At the press conference that day, the two leaders referred to “An Important New Idea” involving Sunni states (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman) making peace with Israel in exchange for US protection from Iranian aggression.

The proposal was then crafted with Saudi Arabia on March 14, when the president met with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The regional fears of Iran also presented an opportunity for cooperation against the Islamic State and radical Islamic terror which is why President Trump sent US military forces into Syria and the Yemen.

Tomorrow promises to be chock-full of optimism as foolish men try for Middle East peace without the world’s #1 state sponsor of terror, Iran.

We know from Daniel 9:27 that one day a (false) 7 year peace accord will be enforced. But without Iran and her proxies, Syria, Iraq, Hamas, and Hezbollah the fulfillment of the prophecy is still not yet.

Yes, Anon and Meir, I saw that reference and knew that it was troublesome because our interpretation of that last week in Daniel is not the same as the Xtian interpretation. Rashi even says that this last Shmittah cycle (or seven) occurred with Titus at the very end of the 2nd Temple period. The 70x 7 weeks correspond to the 490 years of the 70 year Babylonian Exile + the 420 years that the 2nd Temple stood at least officially. During the 70 years when the Temple did not stand, 52 years passed where the Land was completely vacant. Rashi says that was the first 7 x 7 years + 3 extra years until Koreish allowed the return to Tzion. Koreish is referred to as G-d's anointed in Sefer Yishayahu. Then from the year of Koreish's decree until the last seven years, Yerushalayim was rebuilt with the Temple being completed after 21 years from Koreish's decree.

JPost: The year 2017 could see a “perfect storm’ for Israel’s relationship with the Diaspora, according to a report released by the Reut Institute this month under the title “The Future of the Nation State of the Jewish People: Consolidation or Rupture?”

The report discusses various components of Israel’s ties with world Jewry, primarily US Jewry, and posits that if Israel does not take action to change an outdated mindset and working assumptions which no longer correlate with reality, Israel’s function as the national home for the Jewish people will ultimately be destroyed.

If that happens it warns, the Jewish state’s very existence could be threatened further than it is today. more …

My Comments: There are a lot of questions as to how successful Donald Trump will be in draining the swamp, and even more questions about how he will handle Obamacare and Israel and the embassy move.

But we never need to question G'd’s word, the Bible. And as for Israel’s relationship with the diaspora or her function as a national homeland for the Jewish people, you can take it to the bank, absolutely nothing will go wrong.

The diaspora (scattering) began after the second siege of Rome in 70 AD. The Roman emperor Titus ransacked the temple killing millions of Jews at the same time.

According to the Talmud (Gittin 56b) says that the emperor Titus was punished by a gnat which entered his nose driving him crazy. Legend has it that an autopsy after his death showed that the gnat had grown into a bird of brass with claws of iron that pecked at his brain for seven years.

What the Talmud is saying, according to Italian scholar Azariah de Rossi, is that a tiny gnat of remorse pecked away at Titus’ conscience because he had destroyed the Temple, growing ever stronger until he could no longer live with his guilt.

The prophet Yechezkel 39:28 tells us that the diaspora will end after the war of Gog and Magog:

“And they will know that I am the Lord their G'd when I exile them to the nations, and I shall gather them to their land, and I shall no longer leave any of them there.”

1010 – 970 BC: Reign of King David. Yerushalayim is proclaimed the capital of the United Kingdom of Israel (2 Shmuel 5:1-5).

970 BC: In the 40th year of David’s reign, he purchases the Threshing Floor on Mount Moriyah to build a temple to the Lord. G'd would not allow David to build the temple since he was a man of war (2 Shmuel 24:24; 1 Divrei Yamim 22).

Yerushalayim is mentioned 850 times in the Torah.
King David founded the city of Yerushalayim in 1052 BC, and since that time, there has always been a Jewish presence in Jerusalem.
From 1948 until 1967, the western part of the city was in Israeli hands, while the ancient, eastern part – apart from a small Israeli enclave on Har HaTzofim- was under Jordanian control
Yerushalayim, divided during the 1948 War of Independence, was reunited in June 1967
Yerushalayim is the capital of Israel, but no nations have their embassy there – yet

All new technologies that Fat Boy Un in North Korea successfully tests out are also being tested out at the same time for the Persians to be used against the larger world out there especially technology dealing with long range missile delivery systems. Fat Boy and the Mulllahs have a very deep relationship to share there discoveries on developing Weapons of Mass Destruction.

After the bank gets done takes its “fees” its more like 6.5 or less.

On the political scene, we need to watch for the reversal, from working with Israel to totally working against; looks like sometime around the 3 weeks.

President Trump issues a warning to North Korea that the USA will do what is needed to stop North Korea's nuclear threat.


There is also renewed tension between the UK and Spain over the sovereignty of Gibraltar in the wake of the Brexit vite, and last week's official notice by the UK to the EU that the UK will leave in two years.

I noticed this connection with The Dollar on the Wikipedia "History of Gibraltar" page:

"The Rock was revered by the Greeks and Romans as one of the two Pillars of Hercules, created by the demigod during his tenth labour when he smashed through a mountain separating the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.[14] According to a Phocaean Greek traveller who visited in the sixth century BC, there were temples and altars to Hercules on the Rock where passing travellers made sacrifices.[15] The Spanish later symbolised the importance of the Pillars of Hercules with a heraldic device consisting of a pair of columns with a scroll wrapped around them – a symbol that became the $ sign and the related Portuguese cifrão (Cifrão symbol.svg).[1]"

PM's brother-in-law: Israel needs a new leader
A7 Sunday, April 02, 2017

Doctor Hagai Ben-Artzi, brother-in-law of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, has criticized last week's announcement of restricted construction beyond the 1949 Armistice Line.

Interviewed by Arutz Sheva, the Bar-Ilan University lecturer said building in the hills of Samaria and Hevron, as well as the Jerusalem area is the best way to solve the housing problem of a nation of young families who want to work in the center of the country. He called the announcement of thousands of units a mockery, saying tens of thousands were needed, if not more, and if Netanyahu couldn't bring about massive building, it's time to elect someone who can.

Things are heating up in the north. Unlike Obama, who can see a chemical attack against women and children, then declare "no red lines crossed here; time for a round of golf", Trump (like most moral people) can't do that. He's going to respond. Of course Russia is a big concern, but it won't be business as usual in Syria. Assad is as obtuse as Pharaoh, and looks like this Pessach he may get whacked. The question is, does it end there?

Assad is Neron Mizrahi, but in reality he is more like Antiochus IV Epiphanes than like Pharaoh. He is virulently secular (Chiloni or Hellenized) in a world where the vast majority of Muslims believe in Allah. And that alone is at least partially responsible for the revolution against him.

Speech is considered to be lashon hara (detraction) if it says something negative about a person or party, is not previously known to the public, is not seriously intended to correct or improve a negative situation, and is true. You publishing the newspaper article is hence NOT lashon hara!

The Gemara quotes Rabah bar Rav Huna who states that "anything which is said in front of three people does not involve the prohibition of speaking Lashon ha'Ra." TOSFOS (39b, DH Leis) explains that one is permitted to say Lashon ha'Ra in front of three people.

The RASHBAM here (DH d'Mis'amra) and the RAMBAM (Hilchos De'os 7:5) explain that if a person spoke forbidden words of Lashon ha'Ra in the presence of three people, one of those three people may repeat the statement to others (even though it was forbidden for the first person to tell it initially). The reasoning behind this is that since the statement was made in the presence of three people, it can be assumed that it is already public knowledge. Repeating what was said will not give the statement added publicity, and therefore it does not constitute Lashon ha'Ra.

The Rashbam adds that since it may be assumed that the statement is public knowledge, one of the three people who heard the Lashon Ha'Ra may even tell the subject of the Lashon ha'Ra what was said about him.

Trump the Snake - Is Trump the new Constantine?

An eerie parallel is beginning to emerge between the newly elected American President and the Fourth Century emperor of Rome. If it continues on course, it does not bode well for either the body of Messiah or Israel.

Constantine, as we know, was the one who looked like the most powerful friend Christianity ever had. But in fact he was the one who became its greatest betrayer, sending the faith spiraling into apostasy for centuries afterwards.

Trump’s rise to the American throne of power also comes at a time when Christian civilization is under serious attack.

Radical Islam has been unleashing its demonic hatred against Christians all over the world (as well as against Jews and other minorities.) At the same time secular humanism has all but dethroned Biblical beliefs in the West.

How will President Trump deal with his “divisive situation?” Clearly he seems eager to try and negotiate a peaceful settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. Like Constantine, he says he doesn’t want to impose a solution on the parties but simply mediate the dispute. But will he?

He already seems to be backing away from his unmitigated support for Israel by giving the Palestinians an important seat at the table. And he seems to be waffling on campaign promises to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, give wholehearted support for settlement growth in Judea and Samaria and abandon the failed Two-State proposal.

Equally troubling was his warming to Jordan and Egypt’s efforts to recycle the Arab Peace Initiative. That proposal would divide Jerusalem, bring millions of so-called Palestinian refugees into Israel and convert Israel’s heartland into the Palestinian State. A non-starter for Israel.

Given the late hour in which we live, if Trump tries to force Israel to accept a Palestinian State with Eastern Jerusalem as its capital, I’d say we could be looking at the one who Constantine and Antiochus foreshadowed.


Comparing Donald Trump to the Roman Emperor Constantine, by Blaise Joseph, was first published in MercatorNet on March 26, long before he clinched the Republican nomination and went on to defeat Hillary Clinton. At the time, it seemed audacious and improbable. Now it seems prophetic.

Joint Russia-Iran condemnation, threat after US hit
Sunday, April 09, 2017

Iran and Russia have issued a joint statement saying that Friday's United States missile attack against a Syrian air force base crossed a red line, according to Reuters.

The two allies of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said, "From now on we will respond to any aggression in Syria."

I'm wondering if Syria is more than a feint. The real action is in North Korea. One blogger speculated this soon after the bombing of the airbase. Wrong or right, something big is afoot in any case:

Obviously, I don't know what is happening. But I strongly suspect all this Syria nonsense is a feint to cover an upcoming US-China attack on North Korea.

We're all hearing deployment news from contacts in the military. But if you look at where the carriers are, the signs point to action in the Pacific, not the Middle East. If you look at the map of the Korean Peninsula, it would make sense for the US to defend the South Korean border, then provide air support and perform amphibious operations from the Sea of Japan while China attacks from the north and from the Yellow Sea.

I think the fact that Trump and Putin are publicly engaged in this very angsty sabre-rattling over virtually nothing in Syria while Xi is in Florida is potentially significant. Trump and Putin play out the little Syrian charade, Trump explains it to Xi, and then the US Navy has the greenlight to go after the lunatics before Tokyo, Moscow, or Beijing get nuked.

This looks like the planning stage for retaliation (Gog Magog):
Russia, Iran, Hizballah set up joint command in Syria
DEBKAfile April 9, 2017, 6:47 PM (IDT)
A new joint command center made up of the forces of Russia, Iran and the pro-Iranian Shiite militias supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad accused America Sunday of waging aggression on Syria and crossing red lines. The center issued this warning:
“From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is [against the Assad regime] and America knows our ability to respond well," said the statement. It was issued in response to the US missile attack Friday on a Syrian air base from which chemical weapons were launched against civilians.
The joint command center also said the presence of U.S troops in northern Syria where Washington has hundreds of special forces helping the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to oust Islamic State was "illegal" and that Washington had a long-term plan to occupy the area. (as read on Yaak)

Meir, I don't believe that one is allowed to say lashon hara in front of anyone, even the more so in front of three people!! If something is public knowledge, then one might be able to repeat something if there is a overriding purpose to doing so such as to warn someone about the danger of doing business with someone else. Chag Same'ach. It is best to avoid gossip, talebearing unless there is an overriding purpose. Then ask a shaylah.

The Plague of Darkness Continues

By and large, the life-goal of Jews in the Diaspora is to achieve material well-being for themselves and their families, to enjoy life, and to take advantage of the gentile world around them. While religious Jews in the Diaspora perform whatever commandments they can, their life goal is exactly the same as secular Jews and as the gentiles – to make a good living so that their children can attend a top college and prepare themselves for making a good living in turn.

Are you OK Reb Dov?

We now see terrorist attacks in the world on a weekly basis. Tonight yet more deaths in France from a Muslim shooting police, two days ago a Muslim attacker in Fresno shot and murdered three people.

We also see both China and Russia moving troops to the border with North Korea.
We are used to outlandish threats from the North Korean leadership, but this time they are met with mobilisation from not just the USA and the South Koreans but other world powers.

Both of these are fulfilment of prophecy -

Bereshit 16:12 "He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."

Meir Ettinger's new article:
Meir on the Sefirot and the Land
This is my estimate of a title.
Sample translation by "Lea"
At the same time, the days of Sefirat HaOmer (which is full of national experiences) dealing with royal building can be seen as an opportunity to dwell on the details of the amendment required to establish the kingdom of Israel.

Even in the correction of matters relating to public life, one can note that it is impossible to point to one issue on which the distortion of foreign power is dependent. Any deviation from the path of Judaism in one area of public life also affects all other spheres. In any event, the necessary amendment is not merely a cosmetic correction. The revolution that is needed is a comprehensive revolution that hinders every detail.

The 49 days of the Omer are the days of Tikkun, the way we make the Pesach holiday, which symbolizes the decision to accept the yoke of the kingdom of heaven until the Torah is accepted.

The seven dimensions - as in everything in the soul are not monotonous but complex and full of details, so every count and count, every measure or emotion consists of the integration of all seven other measurements. This is the reason why a profound correction can not be satisfied only with the correction of grace, for example. Rather, we must dwell on the whole integration of the count of grace with the other seven Sefirot. Grace in grace, heroism of grace. And so on.
