The Corona Virus: As the Sun Comes Up, the Corona Shines First

This is an intermediate post.  Yes, I am writing a lengthier post, but writing it in full is taking longer because of unexpected responsibilities.  In the interim, I did a bit of research.  One of the proofs that this is the last pre-Messianic Shmittah cycle is if the Plagues more and more come on Mankind for trying to divide Yerushalayim (Zecharia haNavi) and trying to divide Eretz Yisrael in general (Yoel haNavi).  Here are two short posts from my Facebook page that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is what is happening.

The nine nations that unilaterally condemned and threatened Israel for building in Givat HaMatos and the E1 corridor to Maaleh Adumim at the end of February:
France, Italy, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, and Belgium as the Headquarters for the EU.

Here is the EU condemnation. Remember the EU is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium while the EU Parliament is headquartered in Strasbourg, France.

The top eight countries IN THE ENTIRE WORLD which have the worst death toll PER CAPITA from CoVid 19 are: France, Italy, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, and Belgium! Germany has a very high per capita case rate, but for whatever reason, its death rate is far lower. Maybe we can discuss that anomaly later.

Here is the exact total in deaths per million citizens of these top eight countries to erase all doubts from this table:

And here are the top 8 countries IN THE WORLD with the highest PER CAPITA death tolls from CoVid 19, starting from late February and early March when it exploded in Europe:

1. Belgium 756 per million
2. Spain 576 per million
3. Italy 511 per million
4. U.Kingdom 482 per million
5. France 414 per million
6. Sweden 328 per million
7. Netherlands 322 per million
8. Ireland 301 per million

The USA comes in 9th or 10th at 248 per million, but 60% of the deaths in the United States are in just 4 East Coast Blue States that voted for Hillary and therefore voted for the Division of Yerushalayim (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut). The per capita death toll in the Red States that gave Donald Trump the Presidency is minuscule. Look at those state by state numbers for yourself. The biggest issue in states like Texas and Georgia is how fast can they possibly reopen their severely damaged economies, not about how 1700 people died in New York nursing homes while Andrew Cuomo himself wrote the rules condemning those elderly to death. I tried to warn Orthodox Jews in New York, that there is a problem with remaining there to make parnassah when you live behind enemy lines. At least for your own safety, live in G-d friendlier states like Texas or Tennessee (where there are existing Torah communities). For G-d's sake leave those East Coast cesspools. Your communities are NOT protected during this final period of GogUMagog if you live in a majority Reshayim State, that is where the majority of voters in your state are outright Reshayim who vote to divide Eretz Yisrael. From this present state of affairs from this plague of Dever that should be plainly obvious. And make Aliyah as communities bringing the Rich, Middle class, and the Poor together. Do not leave poor people behind.

By the way, here is the latest abomination from the EU. Notice the list of Western European countries once again showing their hatred for Israel. So there will be more plagues against the same usual suspects. Their outright hatred of G-d's overarching plan for Israel and for humanity as a whole is palpable.

Dov, for the same reason some of us cannot yet make aliya, we also cannot leave our area of the country. If we could pick up and relocate from NY, sick old ladies and married children and grandchildren in tow, believe me, it would be to Israel and not to Texas. I hear what you're saying about NY, but some of us are just plain stuck here for now. Hashem must have a plan, but please pray for us.

Of course, I would hope that everyone would make Aliyah rather than move to Dallas or Memphis. But there are gradations of darkness in this last exile. And at this time, New York and Paris are far darker places than Texas or Tennessee. But so many frum Jews have been living in that armpit for so long because of the parnassah that the stench simply does not bother them at all. The North- Eastern seaboard pushed same sex marriage on the Deep South using the US Supreme Ct. How can any Jew justify himself to willingly and happily live with all those godless Reprobates stinking up all 50 States! Enough is enough. The Eye of the L-rd does not rest upon Brooklyn from the beginning to the end of the year.

What makes you think that it's "because of the parnassah?" Maybe it's because of a LACK of parnassah to relocate. Are you one of these people so far removed from our reality that you think all New Yawkers are wealthy? And it doesn't always revolve around money, either, when you have family members too ill to be moved, and you are doing your best to get through the day and week and lucky to make it to Shabbos candles on time only to collapse and then start the cycle all over again, you are just too exhausted and drained to even attempt to get various types of family members on board and go through all the red tape and planning. There is such a thing as total brain burnout, and many people I talk to (including myself) are THERE. This pandemic thing took the level of brain burnout from almost coping to catatonia. If by some miracle I would be dropped down into Eretz Yisroel with my whole family and someplace to live and a means to buy food, I would be so happy. I want to be there. But it causes more stress to try to wake the rest of the family up than I am able to handle. Some people are born, grow up, and die in the same town. We may very well end up doing that, but if so, that will be because it's Hashem's will. He deposited us here, and some of the obstacles are so insurmountable that it begs the question, what sparks did He want us to release here or what tikkun does our "stuckness" accomplish? There is only so far a person can force a situation when Hashem has made it clear that, "sorry, not yet." All we can do is the best we can do with the tools Hashem has given us.
There are pockets of non-armpit-ness here still. There are frum communities who are spiritual and not even online to read the warnings. Do you really think that Hashem will abandon them? And don't throw that Holocaust analogy into it, either, because, first of all, the final redemption will be different, no true Jew will be left behind, and secondly, if we are meant to die al kiddush Hashem, that's also a tikkun, and we will be brought back at techiyas hameisim. The latter is not my preference, but if it is Hashem's will, who am I to argue? As my 18-year-old daughter bravely said during her last week of life, nearly 5 years ago, "If Hashem wants to take me, He can take me." Do any of us really have a choice, ultimately? Having said all that, please pray that we all get out. Chaya Rochel bas Shulamis.

Thanks for posting Reb Dov.

Some anomalies though -

Germany - as you mentioned. Perhaps because they voted in December 2019 "Peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine" in favour of Israel?

New Zealand - with a very low death rate, yet consistently votes against Israel.

My eyes are being opened to the extent of the erev rav situation in EY. They are everywhere, in every aspect of life, wherever there can be influence, they are there. I believe it is time to begin a complete course of learning on who they are, what forms they take and what strategies to employ to avert catastrophe by their hand. It is they who have incurred the most suffering on the Jewish people in Israel. Not the *UN* not the *arabs* not any country - but them. They are sinister and insidious and their grip is directly taken from the Soviet Union's book of how to demoralize, subject and destroy a nation through psychological, physical, mental, spiritual means. They have infiltrated the barriers to Torah and can manipulate from within.

Anon: I never confuse the suffering on an individual level which comes from multiple reasons that are impossible to discern with the suffering of the Klal in a particular place. Individual suffering might even involve Tzaddiqim, suffering for the sins of Mankind so that G-d can then take pity on Olam HaZeh without destroying the physical world. The suffering of the Klal more than anything else, though, almost always,requires a Cheshbon haNefesh to collectively figure out what they may have been doing wrong COLLECTIVELY, especially for that suffering that was brought about by an Act of G-d, instead of a result of Man's cruelty. This Plague is in the first category, an unquestionable Act of G-d, without simply allowing human beings to be agents of cruelty, a much more complicated providential scenario. Pointing those things out is not cruel, for it can potentially bring about teshuvah much more quickly where COLLECTIVELY a community could rather quickly change the path that they are on.

Rachel: That was beautifully written. Thank you for posting that.

Rachel, Hashem will not abandon His people. But things will get difficult and it will be very complicated to actually make Aliyah if and when air and sea ports are closed down. Hence, the thought and actually MAASEH of preparing is vital. Liquidate, put things in order, documents, photos, supplies - and begin feeling that this is actually happening. As long as you categorize it as something in a dream it stays in a dream. When you start preparing Hashem will take notice and help you get there.

Rachel your comment is heart-rending. I am very concerned about Jews in the diaspora. There are a few voices like yours of people who desperately want to make aliya but are truly prevented from doing so. Most Jews are fast, fast asleep. My understanding is that EY is the safest place to be, the place itself provides protection, and that Hashem will save the tsadikim everywhere. What I would say is even if you can't do anything practical whatsoever, please don't give up on the hope of making aliya. Just as the halacha is that the owner of a lost object is still considered the owner for as long as he has hope of finding it, and it is only when he has despaired that it is no longer his, so too your dream and hope of making Israel your home makes it yours in ruchaniut, even if not currently in practice, and it is something that has to be returned to you.

Please try to have an "aliya moment" every day when that is your focus, when you talk to Hashem and ask Him to turn around all your challenges.

"When there is nothing I can do, remember that there is nothing Hashem can't do" Rav Brody.

London: I think HaShem has a special but unique punishment for that "collectively" vile island nation of Kiwis, who think that they are immune from G-d's collective judgements precisely because they are so isolated in the S. Pacific surrounded by 1000 miles of water in each direction. One of the few nations on earth who have banned kosher slaughter, their punishment will need to be uniquiely tailored to them. Those XChurch earthquakes were simply not the end of this natter.

Blue Star: The prophesied last war against the Erev Rav in Eretz Yisrael is approaching quickly, prophesied by the students of the Vilna Gaon in sefer Kol HaTor. We are already in the "Plagues" stage of the Final Redemption which will culminate in the Shmittah year, b'itah, with the great war between Western Rome and Persia. (That is assuming no Achishena teshuvah that could bring this closer.) Donald Trump's Peace Plan ruse assumes that both he and Klal Yisrael can "wait out" the Squatter Nation's foolproof rejection of his Deal over the next 4 yrs. It is why he is giving them 4 yrs to hang themselves by rejecting it, and not 5 yrs. The problem with that is that B'itah B'itah is in the Motzei Shmittah year, NOW LESS THAN 3 YEARS AWAY. So Trump's 4 yr plan is not on G-d's timetable b'itah.
This war against the Erev Rav will likely be bloodier than simply philosophical. The #1 enemies run the Hebrew news websites, sit on the Supreme Court, or willingly carry out their dictates as 50% of the Policemen in the Police force. Brace ourselves for the coming battle.

When I first wanted to make aliya i opened a file with nefesh bnefesh. I uplaoded some easy information and at that point i dint even have the 100dollars to pay them to keep the file open. I was in debt and all i had was a desire to lice in israel. Only two years later did my desire get so outvof controll that i would sit hours and cry to hashem to get me to israel.i went on Nefesh b nefesh website again two years later and then I had the money to lay a filing fee. And they still kept whatever info I uploaded. From there it took a full year to gather the necessary papers. But Nbn websiteciscso user friendly and they list so clearly what you need.i remember it took me like three months just to geT passports done. But after Every time I saw the list got done. You can start with thecday documents. Even if it takes years at least you prepared something. I really feel that only my desire got me here. And the one step I took by opening up a folder at Nbn.I came to Israel with no jobs no schools for my kids but i did have a free apt to crash at for six months. I know for sure how you feel. I had no money only debts but opening that file led me here with my crying buckets to hashem. I truly believe once you have a desire to live in israel its the biggest sign that g-d wants you here. You just have to take a tiny weeny step. Even if its opening a file without paying the filing fee.

To bluestar, after 2 years of red tape involving a name change, I finally got my passport, BH. I begged my husband and 2 of my minor children who haven't been to their post high school Israel year to also get their passports, but their being too busy to keep their heads above water caused procrastination and then the pandemic came and closed the passport office so now I can't. And even then, I had to tell them it was "just in case of emergency." We would not abandon our elderly mothers, both primarily being taken care of by OTD daughters because it had defaulted to them logistically with the quarantine. When I express my fears to my husband, he nods his head sympathetically, but we are both too overwhelmed to do anything more, including the step of NBN suggested by anonymous... As for the other anonymous who suggested focusing on it every day, I do. I am a rare female who does shemoneh esrei 3x a day in addition to hisbodedus, and every time I get to the bracha regarding ingathering of exiles, I pause and add my requests. I find myself throughout the day while at work, begging Hashem, "please get us all out of here." As for liquidating things and getting things in order, not happening with the brain fog. I will get back on the "passport just in case" bandwagon once the offices re-open, but that's all I can do. If things are happening as quickly as Dov seems to think, even if everyone were on board and I were able to start today (which I'm not), we wouldn't have time to complete the mission. Bring on the miracles, Hashem, I'm ready!

For those keeping track of THIS plague in Eretz Yisrael, take note. At only 20 to 30 new cases per day over the last five days, the economy, the roofed malls, Machane Yehudah, assisted living facilities, etc are all opening up. One might be tempted to make the argument that this round of CoronaPlague, absent an acceleration of the case counts, ended on Lag B'Omer!

In defence of Reb Dov, and I know this is a chutzpah to speak for him, but he has consistently urged people to make Aliyah if they can, but has acknowledged there are circumstances which can prevent this i.e. health or incarceration.
I have got to know him (online) over the last nine years or so and he has never assumed that all New York Jews are wealthy, and he himself made Aliyah from America so has first hand experience of living there.

I definitely think it is safer for Jews in Israel than anywhere else.
I am trying to work out just what I could do in Israel work wise.

LondonMale, I wasn't accusing. I was actually speaking rhetorically. So many people have had these same arguments and suggestions that I was using the general "you." Even when people think they can put themselves in our shoes, or have been in similar shoes and still gotten to Israel, the fact is that each situation is different, even coming down to a difference in one's level of ability to focus. Think of someone battling depression or anxiety, and winning most days with normal everyday challenges, and then telling that person to uproot their entire large extended family (including the ill elderly) on no money, because you won't be safe where you are. That could bring on anything from a full blown panic attack to a complete emotional shutdown. Someone like you who can try to "work out" what you could do in Israel work wise, that takes a certain level of mental and emotional stamina to attempt. I just wanted to point out that what seems simple or at least manageable to some, can be completely out of the question for others, regardless of one's desire for the outcome. I want to live in Israel, with my family. Just putting that out there for Hashem to be witness.

If you wait to figure it out before you get here you will never come. Hashem provides. You have to come with 100 percent emunah. I did it with 3 suitcases (I couldn't afford a lift) and $500 USD. That was almost 12 years ago! I received 1400 NIS for aborption basket and found a job that paid 1500 NIS. My rent was 1400 NIS. One simply has to have bitachon and learn that in truth we really do not need so much. BTW things are much better now parnosa-wise. So just come. Don't wait to figure it out.

5/14/2020 7:57 AM  
Blogger Rachel said...

Gavriela Dvorah, good for you! That's because Hashem had that in His plans for you. Bitachon is great, but it can't force Hashem's hand. It sounds like you came by yourself. If I only had myself to take care of, that would be great, but chas v'shalom, because I wouldn't trade my clan for that kind of freedom. But when you have children and grandchildren to think about, an elderly mother and mother-in-law, a husband who is visually impaired from a stroke, and total mental exhaustion, you don't "just come." Your tone makes those of us who really CAN'T, feel like we're not trying hard enough or don't have emunah and bitachon. It doesn't work like that. Sometimes Hashem has other timetables.

I was lucky enough to make aliyah...when I was still single. I came with a job, lived with friends, and had my parents to help me out. Coming with a family and no money, no job, etc. isn't responsible.

Sorry for any misunderstanding.
I sometimes find it hard to interpret "tone" in written comments, so I did not realise you were speaking rhetorically.

@Gavriela Devorah

I appreciate your comment and good wishes.
My personal experience was that I made Aliyah, alone, and it did not work out for me.
I lost a ton of money and I returned to London.
My life has not really been stable since.
In retrospect I did not plan properly, and I feel that I personally put too much trust in "blind faith", instead of
planning ahead longer term.
I realise my stance clashes with what some people would expect of a Jew with Bitachon and Emunah, but so be it.
I have heard of people such as yourself who made Aliyah with minimal material items but managed to forge a life for themselves, and to the contrary I have heard of those who made Aliyah with some cash reserves and a business plan and not succeed, and then returned to the diaspora.
In spiritual terms, I think Hashem wanted me back in London, probably I did not deserve to live in Israel, and I need to do Teshuva/Tikkun for things here before I can return.
Or perhaps deep down I missed my family?
But of course these are guesses, as I cannot know for sure.

I believe this is why Chaza"l hinted that Aliyah should be communal, not individual. There are people in the Community that can contribute in various ways to bringing an "entire shul" on Aliyah with all the assorted problems taken care of on the Communal level. This is what is meant that Batei Knesset will be brought to Israel. not simply people coming as individuals from far away. Obviously Chaza"l were not referring to mortar and brick Batei Knesset. Mortar and brick in Jewish communities gets abandoned all the time as communities migrate out of the urban core of American and other Western cities. Some of them, G-d forbid, are turned into Baptist churches. You can go into older neighborhoods and see the old shuls with Jewish stars on the stained glass windows which were simply abandoned as people left for wealthier neighborhoods. Some of them are now churches. Sad and horrible, but it is true. Obviously Chaza"l was NOT referring to mortar and brick Batei Knesset coming on Aliyah. They are hinting strongly that if you want Aliyah to be successful, come as communities not as individuals. I am not sure that many really ever understood that message. We interpret what our sages said sometimes incorrectly because we do not want to digest the Truths contained in our medrashim. Sadly some of those who DO have the wherewithal to help provide for entire communities making Aliyah have a vested interest in not leaving. Sometimes the Rav does not want to take that chance either because a) the Baalei Batim who can provide the wherewithal might fire him as their Rav if he suggests overturning everyone's life by making communal Aliyah, or b)the Rav himself like the Spies of old has a vested interest in staying in the Midbar. In short it is not the fault of those who do not have the means to make this all happen. They are often the ones who want to make Aliyah but cannot because of limitations beyond their control. It IS the fault of those who Do have the means but have a vested interest to keep their shuls in Galut. Think about this before getting angry. It is very sad that this Medrash about the Acharit HaYamim was interpreted to refer to mortar and brick buildings when it referred to Communities making Aliyah together. By the way, I am personally aware of one such situation where the Rav wanted his Community to make Aliyah and he himself checked out a yishuv in the Binyamin region to make Aliyah. He even came with his family and his esteemed father to be the first to pour cement into the cornerstone of his new house while about 40 Baalei Batim in his community also were planning to come, but many Baalei Batim in his community got upset and threatened to fire him if he pursued this "folly". No names, but this is a true story. I can imagine that this has happened to other such plans for Communal Aliyah.

That was great Reb Dov. It was part of my suggestion a while back in order to help those who are in situations that overwhelm them in planning to immigrate to Israel. I believe the time is nearing to when Americans will NOT BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE. The first two months of this year over 2000 Americans left and cut off all connections legally and financially. Doesn’t sound like many. However, in 2019 the total for the ENTIRE YEAR that move away was 2000. So one can interpret this as being a signal that some people realize what is happening and are taking action.

There is a thought I have concerning the "anomaly" with the German death rate:
Around the 10th of March the German Government indicated they expected a number of around 56 Million infected Germans, resulting in 2 Million dead Germans.
The Government did not close the borders (only late, late), nor restrict travel and flights from China, nor stop entry for Asylum reasons; but they silence medical advice like that one:
So I think: Because of the German Governments pride, their obvious willingness to let people die, and their arrogant pretending to be prophets "2 Mio deaths) HaShem does defeat them.

History repeats itself

Jews living abroad: stop being delusional. The money and material things will be taken from you, you are in constant danger. Come to Israel, settle the country. Come with joy and wholeheartedly like they came in 1948 when they kissed the ground out of love for G'd - learn from them! If you do not learn, G'd will do with you as He did with them. The calm in anti-Semitism is so that you can take the time to come to Israel. If you think it is over, you are mistaken, dear Jews. They will come to your homes, to the temples, to the schools, to the businesses. The entire world, except for Israel, is in conflict and it will not stop until the messiah king is crowned.

All of the Jews living abroad, G'd is warning them to urgently come to the holy land of Israel! If they don't make Aliyah, they will lose - G'd never loses. Anti-Semitism in the world, ISIS and extreme Islamists, will toss them from their homes and work and will take their property, they will be left with nothing. It is better to come to Israel now with Joy, to sell your property at any price, than be thrown to the streets. These are harsh but true things. There is no choice, the words are harsh in order to save Jews living abroad. ISIS, Muslims, and anti-Semitism is destroying all of Europe and the United States. If the Jews don't wake up, there will come a time when they cannot run, it will be too late to come to Israel. If there are Jews married to gentiles - they need to come to Israel and convert them. Israel is the mother and father of all of the Jews in the world.

Chag Pesach! Moshe Rabbeinu had laid out HaShem’s immediate and future plans for the Jewish people. They would leave Egypt, receive the Torah at Mount Chorev, and then physically expel or even kill millions of Canaanites living in Eretz Yisrael in order to inherit the land, as promised to Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’akov.

The sheer immensity of the plan made eighty percent of the Jewish people recoil in disbelief. How could they, a people born in slavery, broken in body and spirit, go out into the foreboding desert, and then make war upon seven Cannanaite nations strategically divided into 31 powerful city states? Where would they get food and water in the desert? Who would heal their wounds and train them militarily? Does not the very idea that they would not enter the Holy Land as pious pilgrims, but as imperialistic conquerors run counter to the traditions they received from their parents of a compassionate and loving God?

Religious logic, they claimed, dictates that HaShem would give them the Torah and they would live in peace and tranquility here in Egypt, as benevolent rulers over their former masters. And after several generations of experiencing freedom, they could come to Eretz Yisrael through some sort of political understanding or through historical evolution resulting in the millions of goyim living in Eretz Yisrael disappearing.

Most concluded that it was not possible that what Moshe was saying originated from the compassionate, loving God of our ancestors.

For them, emancipation from slavery meant that they could now sit in the front of the Alexandria express bus. They could eat in restaurants without the ubiquitous “No Hebs or dogs allowed” sign. The Egyptians would no longer call them “boy,” but now they would be called “sir.” They could walk with heads held high, because Moshe – one of their own – was the most popular figure in public life. These were the upper limits of their dreams – the bus, the restaurant, the respect.

Then there were the other 20% who had no means of negating the claims of the overwhelming 80% majority in a logical way, because logic was totally on the side of the “refuseniks”. Nevertheless, these 20% tenaciously accepted that Moshe’s message was directed to him by HaShem.

The day of reckoning was not far off. During the plague of darkness, the 80% of “rational humanitarian” Jews perished, and the remaining 20% left Egypt to take up HaShem’s mission. We are the descendants of those 20%.

The unthinkable has happened. Jews in the galut believe that the doors of Israel will always be open to them if the time comes when they will have to close their shuls and yeshivas, lock their homes, pack their bags and come home. Today many Jews had plans to visit the holy land for Pesach or to see their children or just to breathe a little Yiddishe nachas in the Jewish homeland. However, the gates are now closed. There are almost no airlines that land here and whoever comes is placed in a 14-day quarantine. Airlines including El Al are inundated with ticket cancellations, and the sign on the sky over Tel Aviv reads “Closed for The Duration”...

HaShem does not punish without forewarning the sinner. Anti-Semitic incidents are warning number one. The inability to enter Eretz Yisrael is the second warning. But three strikes and you’re out!

Re Aliyah.

Thank you Reb Dov.
One thought i had based on my experience, was that I did not have enough guidance in Aliyah.
I have friends and family in Israel, but only some of them had made Aliyah...the majority were native Israelis
They all did the best they could to help me, but even the ones who had made Aliyah had made it a long time ago, when society was different, and they were young, single, just out of school, and just picked up a couple of suitcases and went to Israel and joined the army or went to a kibbutz.
What I really needed was a group of Anglos who had made Aliyah within the last three to five years to answer very specific questions on where to live, what type of jobs to apply for etc.
I was registered with Nefesh B Nefesh, but there wass only so much that their forums , their handbook, and their British advisor could do.
So if anything can come out of this discussion it would be a "Mentor Scheme" for those who have applied for Aliyah, and have recently made it.

I wish I were the poster child for figuring Aliyah out. I am not. I do know one thing. When G-d provided for me and my family the means to at least try to make it work, we came. We waited one year between the Summer of 2002 until the Summer of 2003 because of my daughter's hip displacement surgery which needed time to heal. But then Gog ben Gog went after Nebuchadnezzar (Sadam Hussein) while Tony Blair went into Botzrah with the Army that deserved Botzrah's fate for closing the Gate to Eretz Yisrael before WW2, and we had to come.

To be honest, if I had known the evacuation of Gush Qatif and those who supported it for 290 million shekels for certain Ashkenazi Chareidi yeshivot would delay the Redemption by 2 full Shmittah cycles, I do not know what I would have done in 2003 with fore-knowledge of the Churban wrought by Jews I thought I knew in 2005. I do know this though. The B'itah Achishena opportunity of the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle 7 yrs IN ADVANCE of the World falling below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah in 5776 (Orlando massacre Shavuot night, 49 homosexuals murdered) would give way to being pulled kicking and screaming into b'Itah b'Itah Geulah within 7 yrs AFTER Shavuot 5776. I knew Geulah would come.... the harder way. So we held on for those two unnecessarily extra pre-Messianic Shmittah cycles, knowing that an American lead petro-dollar world economy would crumble by the following Shmittah year 5782. We came for the longer haul. Those who thought that World Jewry outside of Eretz Yisrael would not have to accept the consequences of running away from Gush Qatif 14 yrs later were sadly mistaken. I am sure there are many Jews in Brooklyn like their wonderful Assemblyman Dov Hikind who came here to mourn the Churban of 5765 (2005) or who mourned it over there, but many did not mourn. Gush Qatif was a blip on their moral radar screen. It made sense that Chinuch Atzmai funding should come from a totally corrupt Ariel Sharon.
Why raise money abroad, when it could be attained here ... for a price of alliance with Sharon. So now we come to mourn the end of that Galut the harder way together. The tears that we wail now 14 yrs later were set in motion in the Year of the Disengagement when some thought that pulling 10,000 Jews out of their homes was the moral equivalent of evacuating neighborhoods to make way for a new runway at JFK or even Ben Gurion. (Yes, this was how it was explained to me at the time by those who supported that alliance with the Devil.) We are reaping what we sowed 14 yrs ago, and it hurts.

I realize that for most of the world the Corona plague did not end on Lag B'Omer, but for whatever reason at least the first deadly wave of Corona Plague DID END in Eretz Yisrael, almost to the day, on Lag B'Omer. There is a message so deeply incumbant in this immensely important detail. For those who serve G'd to make money leading up to Lag B'Omer, the price of the parnassah was Heaven's lash. Yet, for those who make money to serve G-d in Eretz Yisrael AFTER Lag B'Omer, the parnassah comes with the sunshine of the coming Summer. The Angel of Rome has no ta'anah on this parnassah because Edom has no concept of living in charge of a world where the purpose of making money is to serve G-d. Rome only serves G-d to make money, not vice versa. So the prosecution of those above the 33rd level of purity simply cannot come from Edom's angel. So just like the plague at the time of Bar Kochba ended on Lag B'Omer, so did the Qorona Plague's first wave end on that day. If we could have figured that out 14 yrs ago, then the money to serve G-d would not have come from the Devil's pocket. Lesson learned, ...... the hard way.

In the same way that Aharon who is pure in Hod can defeat Yavan at the level of Netzach that is in Netzach (25th level of purity), Mashiach ben Yosef (or Binyamin) who is pure in Yesod can defeat Amaleq and Edom at the 33rd level of purity. We know that Edom calculates that the Mon or Money first fell on the 31st day of the Omer, for Moshe was told on the 30th day after leaving Egypt that the Mon would fall that coming evening on Motzei Shabbat, the 31st day of the Omer. Israel had a Chazakah on the Mon on Lag B'Omer, for on that day it fell for the third time. So Esav says, Ahah! With a Chazakah on the Mon, I can demand part ownership of it for the rest of human history. So he builds the Roof over his Civilization at the 33rd level of purity believing that there is no need to serve G-d beyond this level. So the one pure in Yesod can remove his Malkhut from Edom's hands.

The formation of this new Govt is not like all of Bibi's former govts. Apparently, he is being tested if he can actually play a Messianic role. Can he, for the first time in his career actually do the right thing lishma, expecting no reward from it in Olam HaZeh? Time will tell, but after watching his lengthy career, our expectations are rather low even if our hopes are high. The reward in Eretz Yisrael are centimeters of watery depth in the Kinnereth. Don't expect fiat petro-dollars to fill our coffers.

The 33rd level of purity is Hod that is in Hod, and its manifestatation is the Shmanei HaAretz Yihiyeh Moshavecha (the oil of the earth will be your dwelling), Esav'd blessing at the end of Olam HaZeh when he no longer has merit from the Dew of Heaven. Esav's dwelling, the Land of the 2 Gogs, is in the aforementioned Texas, a part of that "less dark" Galut mentioned above. The Shmanei haAretz in his dwelling is West Texas crude. At the end of Nissan, the West Texas International (WTI) sweet crude index fell to Minus $37 per barrel, paying those who store it in Cushing, Oklahoma $37 per barrel to take all that surplus oil off their hands. This was an unprecendeted occurrance in history, a milestone of sorts. For a brief couple of days, Esav's brakhah in Olam HaZeh came to an end. Is it time for the one pure in Yesod to shine forth from Zion, frankly because if the entire world economy is already in the toilet, the 5th Mashiach ben Yosef might as well do the right thing lishma. As I wrote, our expectations from observing his career are rather low..... The 6th MBY will only come after Mashiach ben David is free to rule here. They, the BenYonah and the Tor will be released from their GPS ankle bracelet prison at the same time.

Yonatan Netanyahu was the only Israeli casualty during the otherwise successful raid on Entebbe. Rav Meir Kahane was politically murdered by Armilus, Ehud Olmert, who authored the Kach Law banning him in 1988. 2 yrs later he was assassinated.

“75 years after the second war will come the final and greatest war that will make the second seem even smaller,” the Chofetz Chaim. “There will be another great war, and after that, the Jews will count ten sabbatical years, after which there will be the last sabbatical year. Then there will be an incredible amount of conflict in the world… lucky is anyone who survives this.”

This prophecy is consistent with a section of the Talmud (Sanhedrin 97b) which teaches about the coming of Ben David (i.e. The Messiah).

According to the precise understanding of the Chofetz Chaim, the third war is prophesied to begin in the summer of 2020.

The next sabbatical year, scheduled to arrive in Hebrew year 5782 or 2022, is not expected to arrive without the Messiah according to the prediction by the Chofetz Chaim.

Moshiach is the cause of [the war]. He stands up for Jerusalem and they come after us because of it.

The Midrash (Bamidbar 15) relates that the Jews were deceptively drawn into slavery by their overzealous patriotism to Egypt. They eagerly answered the call for voluntary national service, when at the end of the day they found themselves slaves to Paro.

President Trump sincerely seeks to make America great again. He has plans, programs, ideas, proposal, propositions, projects, procedures, strategy, stratagems etc., on how to go about realizing his dream. But however ambitious and diverse these objectives might be, they are all contingent on one factor – patriotism. For if there is no love of country and willingness to sacrifice for its security and economic advancement nothing will change.

The secular, reform and conservatives are the most patriotic of Jews; feeling as American as anyone whose ancestors came on the Pilgrim’s Mayflower ship, because their connection to Eretz Yisrael is non-existent.

The religious segment of American Jewry is, despite some warm feeling for the holy land, total loyalty as citizens of America, even relying on halachic sources to base their attachment to that gentile county.

In a very short time the Jews of America will have the opportunity to exhibit their love and devotion to the “stars and stripes”.

One way of making America great again, was expressed by President Trump when he declared his intention to increase the military by at least an additional two hundred thousand soldiers. His declared war on Islamic terror will require the presence of American troops in many parts of the globe, including Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. Mr. Trump will not get 200 thousand capable intelligent volunteers for the expanded military. He will have to introduce a selective service act (draft) to reach that number.

To state it plainly: Your sons and daughters will be drafted into the US military. The time will soon arrive when it will become reality.

The price for your patriotism to a gentile country over your devotion to HaShem’s holy land will be paid in full by your sons and daughters. Instead of spending years in yeshiva or seminary in Israel, your sons and daughters will be crawling on their stomachs in the boot camps of Georgia and Texas, in preparation to be shipped out for years to places whose names you can’t even spell.

Meir: When did Rav Nachman Kahana write that last post of yours?

As a general point, there are many Jews at this stage who simply want to "get over" the horrible self-inflicted tragedy of The Disengagement in 5765. Sadly, that is not how Jewish history works. The evacuations were NOT a minor blip on the moral radar screen of History. Depending on the shul, there are many Congregations who have been reciting a newly written Kinah for Tisha B'Av commemorating the Churban. Many forget, but the horrible deeds of 5765 actually took place on Motzei Tisha B'Av itself which cosmically are just as bad as having taken place on Tisha B'Av itself. The Churban was actually planned for Tisha B'Av, but some Jews in order to assuage their consciences, changed the date to the very next night and day to somehow justify it in their own minds. This type of massive event, even predicted in a commentary of the Targum Yonatan ben Uziel on the last chapter in Devarim requires an equally massive tikkun which may have at least begun to occur.

Let's not absolve the residents of Gush Katif of their own culpability so quickly, Dov. I was preparing to go down there and join the opposition when an announcement was made that the residents of Gush Katif did not want any "troublemakers" coming down there. They assured everyone that there was no intention to actually fight the expulsion, but that they would simply resist albeit with tears in their eyes. No hand was to be raised against a "brother."

I heard an interview with a young mother from Gush Katif lamenting the disruption to their relations with their Arab neighbors, assuring everyone that if there would be peace tomorrow, all would be forgiven and everything could go back to the way it was. Many residents og Gush Katif repeatedly recounted stories of their good relations with neighboring Arabs in Gaza, how they shared coffees and attened each others weddings, etc.

Why did no one take the Torah seriously when it quotes HKB"H saying "...if you don't remove them from this land, I'll remove YOU." (Bamidbar 33:55-56)

Forty years were given. Then the decree was carried out. No one is absolved. This was a down payment, the rest of the debt is still owing.

But what is all the talk right now? Whether to stake an actual claim to 30% of the land HKB"H miraculously put into our hands in 1967 at the cost of approving an entire State for our enemies to be carved out of the rest!! Who even recalls the Torah on this matter??

Gaza Disengagement Plan: Knesset Approves Disengagement Plan
(October 26, 2004)

Israel's Knesset voted to approve Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to unilaterally disengage from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank. The vote was 67 in favor, 45 against, with 7 abstentions and one member absent.

Education Minister Limor Livnat and Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu initially threatened to abstain, but voted in favor of the withdrawal along with Ministers Silvan Shalom and Tzachi Hanegbi. Altogether 23 Likud MKs voted in favor of the plan, while 17 voted against it. A total of 21 Labor and One Nation MKs voted in favor, as did 14 Shinui MKs, six Yahad MKs, two United Arab List members and one National Union MK (Michael Nuddelman).

All eleven Shas MKs voted against the plan, on the orders of the party's spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, as did six National Religious Party members, six National Union MKs and five United Torah Judaism Mks. Three Hadash MKs and three Balad MKs abstained, as did one One Nation MK.

What Mr. Bedein was saying is that if the opponents of leaving Gaza/Northern Shomron had known for certain that the US was pressuring them to get out, they would have resisted. But Mr. Sharon hid that information from all Israelis. He had gobs of documents, the contents of which he never revealed.

If it were only the commandment to rid the land of its inhabitants to be fulfilled, it should have started long before Gush Katif was uprooted. The moment it was revealed in the news that the Arabs were keeping the fakestinians in "refugee camps," rather than absorbing them, in order to use them as a weapon against Israel, it should have been established as Israeli policy. That would have been an appropriate answer, and would have been understood worldwide, regardless of American support.

But acknowledgment of H's part in the Six Day War (and all our wars) will have to come first...for that, many more than just the opponents of the Gush Katif/Northern Shomron Nakba will have to do teshuva.

How many people remember that we gave up the entire Sinai Desert, when that was part of the gift H' gave us in 1967???

If we remember and regret, and ask Him for how we should best act, then we won't be talking about abandoning 70% of Yehuda and Shomron today, even among our best advocates (of what I've seen so far).

Shavuot 5780 is precisely 3332 years after Matan Torah. So the World Economy run by Esav needed to collapse by Shavuot 5781, 3333 years after Matan Torah. I have noted that we are one year early with the Collapse of Qeren Qayemet in Olam HaZeh. I am not sure why this B'Itah moment was advanced by one year, but apparently it is being advanced. Perhaps it will take a year for hyper-inflation to set in in order to collapse the Petro-dollar. According to the last page of the Gemorrah Sotah, it is Inflation specifically that ends Olam HaZeh, not a Depression per se'. The massive digital money printing in order to save the Stock Market which is no longer a Market is in line with a Financial collapse that involves hyper-inflation.

According to Rabbi Kessin’s shlit”a “now” video, he indicates that the coronavirus has actually accelerated the Geula process (based on the overwhelming inclusion of studying Jews at the Siyum HaShas Daf Yomi which shocked the SM forces that promptly brought the CV). OK, it sounds nice, but maybe there is something to this. He also brought the incident of Rabi Akiva and what transpired in Shamayim.
I can say that at some point I did notice the apparent dichotomy of the thousands and thousands of Yidden all over the world celebrating the Torah Hakedosha and the nearly back to back creeping virus all over the world. It was a conundrum. We do not really know and can only search and estimate the ways of Hashem, but Rabbi Kessin’s analogy of this is plausible if not accurate. Not everything he said, but this specific attribution.
Just notice the abundance of Rabbis now coming out with their (Torah) estimates and references to Mashiach. It has now taken center stage in the frum world.
This was such a masterful sweeping overrun of the nations of the world containing multiple “purposes” and “uncovering of evil” at the same time. And yes, there is a correlation with the forces of Geulah and a kind of ‘mirroring' effect in what Trump is trying to do vis-a-vis the DS. I saw it clearly at the moment Rabbi Kessin alluded to it.
B”H we need to be careful of whose “shiurim” we listen to just like many years ago we had to be careful of which prophets were giving us the correct information of tikkun. The same thing is happening now. Some Rabbis are leading Jews astray, and some are leading us to doing Teshuva (as Rabbi Mizrachi has warned us).
And Yaak’s recent post was about Gog UMagog possibly being the Coronavirus fiasco. Something to think about.

I would argue that at this stage we are on a b'itah b'itah track. We as a Klal have wasted our Achishena opportunities, by collectively (some of us who should have known better) failing a basic test of human decency or lack of human indecency back in 5765, the 4th year of the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle. So all the mitzvot that we do now will determine our individual place in the Messianic Age and will determine our principal reward in our individual World to Come, but seemingly now will not significantly advance the Messianic Era to an Achishena date. I am sure that there are many who would disagree with this, but I would argue that if we cannot get a basic test in human decency right when so little is expected of us after the Shoah, then by what other merit do we deserve an advancement of the B'itah date, especially since part of the reason for expelling all of those Jews in Gaza was to promote the learning of Torah elsewhere in Eretz Yisrael!? So until there is a tikkun on the Expulsion of Jews in order to learn elsewhere, Mashiach cannot come. So now those tikkunim are now taking place through the forces of nature, in this case through a Virus that takes lives and is destroying Esav's economy. The teshuvah that would therefore advance that date must emanate from a repair of the lack of basic decency which is in part related to a misuse of Esav's fiat financial system mentioned above, not from more transcendent levels of Avodah like Talmud Torah. Yet, as mentioned above, these transcendent aspects of Avodah including learning Torah of course affect individual aspects of our connection and closeness to G-d in the Messianic Era and in the World to Come.

On the level of this lack of decency that emanated from the misuse of Esav's financial system, it is important to understand that one of the reasons people "hoard" their wealth rather than support Chinuch Atzmai in Eretz Yisrael is to ostensibly save for their retirement. This would not necessarily be the wrong thing if the mechanism for saving money were real and true. At this juncture, those moneys are placed into an IRA which is invested in the Stock Market, and the moneys are totally detached from their actual value because the value of the dollar no longer is determined by anything real and permanent (like gold or silver). Plus the so called Stock Market since the 2008 Financial Collapse is no longer a Market that can go down in value with the same ease that it can increase in value. The Fed Reserve sees to it that while the stock market goes up on Good economic news that it also cannot go down on bad economic news. Any indication of Market retrenchment because of bad news, such as 35 million newly unemployed in less than two months because of Covid, and the US Fed digitally prints hundreds of billions and now 2 1/2 trillion dollars which makes its way to the stock market to artificially inflate asset prices. The entire so called Stock Market since 2008 has been pure fraud and a bold faced lie. Continued......

So there is a sheker on at least two levels to investing in the Stock Market to save for one's retirement, something that was done on a large scale in America in order to shirk the responsibility of supporting Chinuch Atzmai for Ashkenazi schools which would have prevented the need to join Sharon's evil folly.

1. Yes, it says In G-d We Trust on the dollar, but that anachronism is no longer true for at least half of the American people as they pursue other non-Monotheistic religious options. This is especially true on the Left in whose states most Jews find themselves to be either Leftists or immersed in Leftist Culture. So there essentially is no reason why the fiat system, established by Nixon after the collapse in 1971 of the Bretton Woods System of tying other currencies to the Value of the Dollar whose valued was tied to the value of Gold, should eternally survive. There exists a false belief that the American petro-dollar system established by Nixon divorced from the value of real money should survive into Yemot HaMashiach. Maybe back in the 1970s and 1980s when both liberals and conservatives in America loosely based their morality on the existence of One G-d, the system set up by Nixon deserved to continue. It is now self-evident, that the Liberals are basically disappearing or have disappeared and have been replaced by either pagan or atheistic Leftists. The emblem In G-d We Trust is now a Mockery. The fiat system no longer has Divine merit to continue. So the basis of thinking that one's IRA (Individual Retirement Account) being the account from which American Jews will be able to retire in Eretz Yisrael (or Florida, [sic}) in the Messianic Era no longer has merit. The America of 50 years ago is not the America of 2020 and as mentioned above, the overwhelming percentage of American Jews EITHER live behind enemy lines OR have become part of the enemy against their own people in Eretz Yisrael.

2. We know from the Torah itself that the Currency of the Messianic Era has to be REAL and has to have a Real store of Value. Most mitzvot in the Torah that are done with money are done with Silver (Dinar, Shekels, Kikar aka talents). From Machtzit HaShekel to Pidyon HaBen, the ancient Currency and the Currency of the Messianic Era was and will be Silver. The Worldwide American fiat system was NEVER MEANT TO LAST INTO THE MESSIANIC ERA! So really where did the idea that one could live off his IRA in the Messianic Era come from in the first place?

One last thing: These tikkunim for the lack of human decency needed to wait until at least 50% of Mankind also lacked human decency. As mentioned many times this took place when the Middle third of humanity fell below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah that Shavuot night in Orlando, Florida in 5776, at the beginning of the 50th year since the Summer of Promiscuity in San Francisco that began in June or Siwan 5727 (1967), the exact same week of the 6th Day War. So while there has been an opportunity to rise to the the 50th Gate of Purity over the course of those 49 years, most of Mankind went in the other direction and fell to -50 that Shavuot night in the Homosexual bar in Orlando when precisely 49 homosexuals were murdered that very night. (We have previously talked about why it took place in Orlando. So we will review this information another time.) We learn from Parshat VaYishlach, when the Spies visited Chevron, that the world can never be out of balance between light and darkness, holiness (Chevron) and impurity (Tzoan, Egypt) for more than 6 years. If it is out of balance for 6 years, it has to spring back into balance in the 7th year (often the Shmittah year). So the Messianic Era could either Precede the fall below -49 level of impurity by 7 years b'itah Achishena at the end of the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle in 5769 or as is sadly the case will follow that date in 5776 by the following Shmittah year beginning 6 years later in 5782. Since the 5782 date SEEMS to be the date predicted in Sefer Daniel because it is precisely 1335 years after laying the cornerstone to the Dome of the Rock (The Abomination that makes Desolate) in 687 ce, it would seem to be that the 5782 date for the Apocalyptic final war between Edom and Persia has been set in stone, in large part because by Shavuot 5782, the world will be out of balance on the negative side for a full six years. Imagine the insanity two years from now, just from watching the insanity of the last four years with the world in free fall of the muckity muck of -50.

Ginno here.
For the record, the muslim hackers didnt attack only irrelevant websites for clothing and stuff, but also the counter-missionary organization Yad L'Achim. They probably attacked wherever vulnerable site they could from Israel instead of looking for security targets (just like their terrorist friends in real life), but Hashem directed them to a place of tzadikim that saves Jewish souls to make their sin even greater, and so their punishment. Anyway, I hope Yad L'Achim recover soon.

When I wrote above: "Hopefully their feelings of guilt for not having done enough, if they still have them, will be assuaged." I was writing about people like myself and perhaps people here who had done more than I regarding the Gerush, but it just wasn't enough. I didn't mean people who gave up and decided to give in to the army and the government. Or those who planned all along to betray the cause!

In August 2005 I was finally here visiting for the first time, after having had serious surgery and aftercare. During my visit, families who seemed obviously from Gush Katif were out in the streets in downtown Yerushalayim selling orange ribbons and encouraging us to display/wear them, before the Gerush. I bought a few and wore them. They were so happy! But after the fact I felt this was too little, too late. I wish I could have done way more.

I also spoke with a young teenager who asked me something like, "Don't you want peace?" I answered her, "You're too young to understand. It's too complicated." I had a hard time with comebacks, as you can see. I was always on the correct side, just not too articulate about it.

What I might have realized is that we are dealing with a brainwashed population, and have been practically since the beginning. Both in Israel and in America. And in many other places as well.

By whom? I watched a video movie yesterday that explains it better than I could. Warning: it's a Christian production and, while not proselytizing, promotes the Xian culture of America as the light in the darkness, and while featuring Jews and Jewish scenes, doesn't acknowledge them appropriately, or even explain some of them. I have some more criticisms of it, but I'll save them for if people want to know. It's also time-sensitive: free only until Sunday the 24th (Rosh Hodesh Sivan, but I doubt they know that, or care!).

The main thing is, it explains the agenda of the Communist organizations within America and how over the last half century at least, the country has become practically the "USSA" with the change coming from within. Part of the plan was to take down American morality and thought process.

Though this isn't in the video, guess who've been in charge of making sure Israel toes the line and adheres to whatever the Americans say? Why do you think Israel's values are so close to America's and they make such a big deal of it? And What American Values Are They Talking About? I think you'll be shocked. I was. It'll ring a lot of bells, and now you'll know why and where it comes from, if you didn't before.

AGENDA: Grinding America Down It's an hour and a half, but you can speed it up.

I hope that we can learn the lessons without having to swallow the Xian agenda, and apply them to ourselves and our context so that we can all speak and write articulately, in clear language and not the communism-"inspired" language we're all used to hearing, if not speaking.

What on earth has happened to Bibi? Is he suddenly so home-free that he can afford to cut Naftali Bennett loose without official security protection after only three months after he leaves the Defense Ministry? Is this what a Defense Minister gets for doing a good job? I really, really hope this isn't true.

It seems to me that there is a question as to whether our government values its public servants.

We all know the rivalry Bibi and Bennett have had, but for Bibi this is seriously highly unprofessional behavior, to say the least. So much so, that I think it had better be proved publicly that it's not true, if in fact it's not. The link below is the 2nd report I've seen on the matter. The first report is linked from there. Arutz Sheva risks its reputation over it. And I don't think it matters how much Bibi has against Bennett personally; again, this is a professional matter.

Bennett's name and picture are everywhere, and the Iranians, for sure, are after his blood for, in their terms, very good reason. Maybe some other Muslim countries too.

Even if, as some say, Bennett can afford his own security, it's not about the money; they could split the cost in half if this is the reason. It's a derekh eretz issue that affects every Israeli. No other country would cut off its former DM even if the country's leader hates his guts. Would they? Do we know of any?

G-d forbid. I would not like to see Bennett get murdered because the right thing wasn't done by him. I'd be very afraid to take the next DM position, and I imagine the next one would too.

On the other hand, it might be the the excuse H' needs to send Mashiah and tear this system down because the state of Israel we know and have mixed feelings about (to say the least) will have become a mafia state where all lives are in danger because the government no longer knows who is an enemy and who is a friend, in any way, shape or form. It isn't my place to say whether the new government is stepping, or about to step, over the -50th sha'ar tumah; but I do wonder.

Abba, please watch over, under and on both sides of Naftali Bennett.

I have to side with and sympathize with Rachel's sentiments. Not every Jew has the opportunity or fortunate circumstances to move immediately back to Israel. Believe me - every God-fearing Jew longs and knows that one day they will be living in Israel and knows deep down inside that their true home is Eretz Israel. But we know there is a verse from Isaiah 11:12 (and other places in Nevi'im it is mentioned)that - "And He shall raise a banner to the nations, and He shall gather the lost of Israel, and the scattered ones of Judah He shall gather from the four corners of the earth." "The lost of Israel" - the 10 tribes of Israel will be brought back and "Scattered ones of Judah"(including Benyamin)- self explanatory. Also Devarim/Deuteronomy 30:3 states this same idea in a similar fashion. The verses do not state or mention that these scattered Jews will be brought in coffins or that they are already dead when they are brought back - and furthermore our Sages have already explained that no Jew will be left in the exile. And furthermore - who is holy or righteous enough in today's generation to pass judgement on every Jew or condemn every Jew if they happen to be living in Galut? Every Jew's circumstance is unique and different then the next Jew's circumstance. I get very insulted when people pass judgement on me simply because I'm living outside of Eretz Israel, which believe me, is not the situation I'd like to be in.
If you people care so much about me living in Israel, then help me get there - because I've already made Aliyah many years ago and now I'm extremely poverty stricken, and it costs money to fly to Israel, and any way you slice it, it is expensive to live in Israel. I have no family support and I have no relatives living in Israel. So without any help from Nefesh b' Nefesh or from any Israeli governmental agency - all my Aliyah privileges have been used up - or any family member or from my Jewish brothers - whom are required to help another Jew get out of poverty - how do you expect me to live in Israel, let alone fly to Israel? As a Jew I'm not supposed to believe or wait for a miracle so all you self-proclaimed, wise Torah scholars, what wise and amazing solution can you put forth to all of us poor, unfortunate Jews who, more or less, find themselves in the same boat as I am?

The race issues in America continue.
I think they very much tie in with the extreme polarisation of Republican versus Democrat, six months before the planned Presidential election.
Freedom (but at what cost) versus "Social Justice" (but this brings outpourings of hate).
The murder of George Floyd was hell to watch.
But after people have been cooped up in quarantine, and with millions more unemployed and hungry than usual, will there be a long hot summer of riots?

And in addition to the East African locust problem, there is now record heat and massive swarms of locusts attacking Northern and Central India.

Against that backdrop - wishing all a Chag Shavuot Sameach.

According to Rabbi Shalom Shmueli, head of the Nahar Shalom Yeshiva in Jerusalem, is known for his powerful mystic messages. Last week, he participated in a special meeting with other rabbis. Rabbi Shmueli gave over a message he had received from his father, Rabbi It should be noted that Rabbi Shmueli does not make public appearances and his message was made public by Rabbi Yekutiel Fish at his urging.

This announcement must be spread to the entire world,” Rabbi Fish told Breaking Israel news. “This is an imminent emergency. All Jews in exile around the world must come to Israel immediately. They are all in grave danger.”

I do not like some of the news articles whose ideas are being forced on the public. I also get a very uneasy feeling about the coming months. Something strange. ISRAEL is so in bed with the UN, EU, WHO, CDC, all with nefarious plans for the world. The CV was/is just the beginning chv”s.

Yes George Floyd was murdered, but the reaction to his being murdered will go far beyond bringing the policeman who did it to justice. This is happening 102 1/2 years after another Prime Minister Lloyd Gog liberated Yerushalayim from the Turks. I will have more to say about this later if this plague spreads.

A quck primer until I post about this 2nd plague on Edom which I am calling the Floyd Gog Plague. Those who read this blog intently will understand the seminal moment that we have reached with this new plague:

There is one piece of very, very good Geulah news.  When PM David Lloyd Gog took Yerushalayim from the Turks 102 1/2 yrs ago, he ended Yishmael's 1300 yr control of Eretz Yisrael predicted in The Zohar VaEira 32.  For all those 102 1/2 yrs which correspond to the 1 yr and 9 days from Yishmael's Brit Milah until the Brit Milah of Yitzchak Avinu, 1 yr and 9 days later, Eretz Yisrael has been "divided" between Yaakov and Esav.  If you think about it, the Palestinians are a tool established by Edom to divide Eretz Yisrael.  Even the name comes from Roman Caesar Hadrian after the extinct Sea people who worshiped Dagon, the fish god, and for over 1350 yrs until 1964 the Arabs here NEVER called themselves by that name, Palestine or Philistine.  They only adopted that name to ingratiate themselves with Edom's view of reality in order to get Edom to side with their cause to destroy Israel.  So for the last 102 1/2 years, Eretz Yisrael is divided between Esav and Yaakov.  Now that we reached the Cosmic Brit Milah of Yitzchak, the matter is decided in Shamayim.  Even a hint from Edom that E. Yisrael can be divided will lead to almost instant Divine Wrath against that nation. THIS is why this new plague is named after the original Gog, David Lloyd Gog from WW1.  It is no mere coincidence that the murdered victim that is triggering the destruction of so many American cities and a Civil War is Floyd Gog or Gog Floyd.  I am not sure yet why a Pey was added to Lloyd except to know that the bent Pey corresponds to Moshe Rabbeinu influence in this Final Redemption as in Pakod pakaditi in terns of bringing judgement on the Umot HaOlam.  But as of this Shavuot we have arrived at the Cosmic Brit Milah of Yitzchak Avinu.  Since Esav has no part with brit milah, as of right now, he has lost all Heavenly claim to E. Yisrael. Continued....

Just like each year of Yishmael's life at his brit milah which unlike Edom, he continued to do an imperfect brit milah on his descendants upon them turning into teenagers, corresponds with 100 yrs of Malkhut over E. Yisrael for a total of 1300 yrs, so that last year (when the angels show up and say that Yitzchak would be born exactly one yr later)+ 9 days corresponds PRECISELY with 102 1/2 years!  374/365 = x/100.  Solve for x.  The almost exact figure is x = 102 1/2 yrs.  The extra 9 days comes from the fact that Avraham welcomed the Angels 2 days AFTER his and Yishmael's Brit Milah (on the 3rd day), and after Yitzchak was born precisely 1 yr later, he received brit milah precisely 7 days after his birth for a total of 1 yr and 9 days after Yishmael's brit milah.  So the 2 events are connected. 102 1/2 yrs after David Lloyd Gog conquers Yerushalayim for the Sons of Yitzchak from Yishmael, Yerushalayim can no longer be divided between Esav and Yaakov without incurring Divine Wrath. Those 102 1/2 yrs correspond precisely with 1 yr and 9 days, just like each yr of Yishmael's life at his Brit Milah corresponds with 100 yrs. So the beginning of the disputed rule of Eretz Yisrael began when Lloyd Gog conquered Israel from the Turks. The dispute in Shamayim 102 1/2 yrs is now settled, and that dispute seems to have ended as it began with Lloyd Gog but this time with a Pey. I say this realizing that specifically under Lloyd Gog, E. Yisrael for a brief 3 or 4 yrs was not divided. But that period of kindness from Britain was very short lived. Already immediately after LLOYD GOG left office, Britain was talking about dividing Western Palestine as they called it.

Ah, but even D. Lloyd Gog divided his original "Palestinian" Mandate. In 1921 he gave the entire 78% of the eastern part of his mandate to the HaShemites from Saudi Arabia, leaving Yaakov with the Western 22% west of the Jordan River! Yet because pre-Messianic Eretz Yisrael in the Torah has its eastern border with the Jordan River (-minus the territories of Sichon and Og conquered by Moshe Rabbeinu), in reality, Lloyd Gog did not really divide Eretz Yisrael in two. But he did chop off the territories of Sichon and Og east of the Jordan River to give it to the HaShemite king. Of course, England was not responsible for excluding the Golan because after WW1, the Golan was part of the French Mandate over which Britain had no say.

Ginno: My short answer is Yes. Jews who live in the Blue States are in serious mortal danger. These States "officially" became spiritual cesspools between 6 and 16 yrs ago when one by one, State legislatures passed laws sanctifying homosexual marriage or granting Civil Union marriage contracts to "homosexual couples". The Gemorrah in Chullin (Mundane slaughter or Sandys) specifically says when legal jurisdictions start doing that, those places are pure moral cesspools. Orthodox Jews simply cannot live in places where the majority of one's neighbors thinks that one of the functions if their state is to sanctify a Noahide abomination. I believe the New York legislature sanctified homosexual marriages in 2010 or 2011, and lo and behold Hurr. Sandy and Sandy Hook Massacre in Connecticut came in 2012. Conn. had also legislated homosexual marriage. I am excluding the fact that the 3 Jewish justices on The Supreme Ct in June 2015 in a 5- 4 Decision forced the acceptance of homosexual marriage on all 50 states, including the states that did not want it. Places that did not want it are at least as of 2015 not yet cesspools.

The Jews and their little Jewish half-acre!!

The Angel of Severe Justice, in his appointed role of prosecutor of humanity, appeared before the Creator with voluminous documentation attesting to the sins of man, which included only one small paragraph regarding the Jewish people. HaShem passes judgement with a punishment of a pandemic virus to mirror the pan-avairus (raixez) that the majority of the world’s nations are committing.

The Gemara declares (Shabbat 55a) that the cause of all human suffering is their sins.

And the corollary: the severity of the punishment is proportional to the sin or to the sum of a variety of misdeeds collectively. So, what is humanity doing so wrong at this time?

We are in the throes of a vicious, obstinate pandemic which is killing hundreds of thousands now, and possibly even millions of human beings around the world. It could bring starvation and deprivation to billions and has signs of reverting national economies to levels of 100 years ago!

Most Christian and Moslem theologians, their adherents and allies, would feel spiritually uplifted and fulfilled if there was no State of Israel. The return of the Jewish nation to the holy land and to Yerushalayim is conclusive conformation of the Biblical proclamation that we, the Children of Israel , are G'd’s chosen people and ‘replacement religion’ is the figment of some illusionary anti-Semite. Rome, Mecca, the churches, and mosques and certainly those billions of people who are godless are all living a lie. Hence, most UN nations would be delighted if Iran would do the dirty work for them.

Here lies the worldwide pan-avaira – the 70 plus wolves (nations) surrounding the lonely sheep.

One other way I can say what I wrote above is as follows: According to the Zohar, Yishmael received control of Eretz Yisrael for 13 Centuries because he accepted Brit Milah upon himself when he was 13 yrs old. So for each yr of his life, he received 100 yrs of control of Eretz Yisrael which is also dependent on the fact that he continues to do an imperfect Brit Milah on his descendants until this day when those descendants become teenagers! Yishmael cuts off all four layers of Orlah while Klal Yisrael cuts off only 3 layers while peeling the 4th layer underneath backwards. The 3 layers cut off refer to the 3 irredeemable parts of the Erev Rav which must be completely destroyed (the Courts and half of the law enforcement in the Modern state, the Leftist G-d hating Media, and the International Socialists and Communists in the Modern state). The 4th Qlipah not torn is Qlipah Noga which can under certain conditions be influenced to join the side of holiness. Many of modern Israel's Generals like Ariel Sharon and Moshe Dayan are from this Qlipah. Both did wonderful things on the battlefield defending Klal Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael BECAUSE THEY HAD BRIT MILAH, but when they tried to do political things after the wars were won, they both made horribly imfamous and destructive decisions. Dayan gave the Temple Mt to the Jordanian Wakf a day or two after liberating it, and we all know what Sharon did in 5765. But in the merit of Brit Milah, these Qlipah Noga Generals won the wars of defending Israel from its mortal enemies and liberated Yerushalayim. In the end, Ariel Sharon died on the very day in 2014 that Noga (Venus) was in inferior conjunction with the earth vis a vis the Sun. On that very day, Noga or Venus went dark.

So Brit Milah to this very day is the key to understanding Divine blessing to win the wars (and to displace the unrighteous amongst the Squatter nation) in Eretz Yisrael. Yishmael's merit was for 1300 temporal years from 637ce to the potential Yovel year 5678 (Erev Chanukah 1917) when General Allenby took the Holy City. HaShem in His Rachmanut counted 26 Yovel cycles which after the destruction of the 2nd Temple were only 49 yrs each because the potential Jubilee was also the first year of the next Shmittah and Yovel cycle. So in the 7th Century ce 644ce (4404) was one potential Yovel year and was only 7 yrs after Omar the so called "Magnificent" conquered the City. Count precisely 26 Yovel cycles or 1300 yrs - 26 yrs because of HaShem's Rachmanut, and one arives precisely at the year 5678 (Late Fall 1917) when Allenby and his PM Boss Lloyd Gog took the City.

The intermediate part that we lived through since 5678 was a case of the Glass being half full and half empty. We were still in spiritual Galut, but starting with the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the promise of at least Half the Land was attainable, and in 5708 (1948), the return to half of Eretz Yisrael conquered by Yehoshua and later by David was realized. So to be honest, one might count only 98 yrs instead of 100 yrs corresponding to the year between when Avraham and Sarah were informed until the Birth of Yitzchak exactly one year later, but since half of the Land was ours and since 1967 we have beem building up almost all of Yerushalayim, the Land most certainly has not lain desolate. Yet, without a Holy Temple, a Sanhedrin, or even a synagogue near the Southern wall of the Temple Mount, we most certainly have been spiritually bereft. So I originally counted 98 yrs + those extra 2 1/2 yrs for the additional nine days from the Fall of 1917 and I arrived at May 2018 when Trump moved the Embassy to the seam line of both halves of Yerushalayim. Yet that event where a part of Edom himself recognized that all of Yerushalayim belonged to the Jews was uncomfortably incomplete as wonderful as it was at the time. It of course did not speak of all of Eretz Yisrael and even all of Yerushalayim. Lurking in the minds of the architects of Trump's Deal of the Century were future divisions of the Land and the non-inclusion of such neighborhoods as Jabal Mukhabar and Shuafat. So after Trump announced his Deal and the EU has announced its hatreds for anything Jewish in half of E Yisrael, G-d is officially weighing in with the onset of the the Plagues phase of the Final Redemption.

By the way, they also set fire to the church of the presidents, near the White House. Because, you know, George Floyd was killed by a priest.... This chaos will stop only when security forces shoot live ammo. But maybe they want this to continue indefinitely, specially mainstream media. They fired from their jobs all the police officers who were involved in Floyd's death and the murderer is being prosecuted. What else do they want? (besides of getting rid of Trump, of course). In addition, a few years ago I saw a video of a suspect who died in similar circumstances and turned out to be a white homeless. He was redhead and also chocked to death. I don't get why they have to turn every case of police brutality into a racial issue. But I guess some people will use any excuse to push for communism. On a sidenote, unlike the first two or three days, most of the violent protesters i'm seeing on videos are white. Now you have mainly antifa and common criminals seeking to steal stuff.

Future Commenters: If you are Unknown or Anonymous in posting, please include a name or a nickname of sorts at the bottom of your comment.

And one last thing in David Lloyd Gog's defense: The battles of Moshe Rabbeinu against Sichon and Og are in Parshat Chukat near the middle of Sefer BaMidbar (Numbers). The precisely outlined borders of Eretz Yisrael are near the end of the same Sefer which explicitly states that the Jordan River from the Kinneret to the Dead Sea is the Eastern border. So a Xtian reading that will assume that the areas conquered by Moshe himself east of the Jordan were not part of E. Yisrael even in ancient times since most gentiles mistakenly assume that the Torah is always in chronological order. So in his mind, he was not dividing the Land Of Israel when he gave all areas east of the Jordan River to the Hashemites.

Both the danger for American Jews and the fact that we are all endangered by these Plagues suggests that it is B'Itah all the way because we even as a Klal lack merit even at the level of basic decency. So many unanswered questions about our future. We have arrived at the Cosmic moment of the Brit Milah of Yitzchak, but Ben David has not surfaced. I think it means more plagues followed by a War against Iran, N. Korea, Russia, and/or China, one after the other, until he does surface. We are between the End of Olam HaZeh and the beginning of Yemot HaMashiach unless like Yetziat Mitzraim, the Plagues are already part of the next Era, Yemot HaMashiach.

Well, one of the videos I catch regularly (Adapt 2030: has now produced one on FOOD HYPER-INFLATION. And the other one is IceAgeFarmer, who updates on the decimation of the American food and farming industries: Food and Food Label Changes, and Farm to Fork. Its difficult to imagine, but the DS is in the process of destroying the food market and distribution in America. Add this to the INSURGENCY RIOTS (which includes foreign activists), and we are witnessing a dreadful attack on America. I doubt anyone ever thought this would happen. Not sure how Trump and the Adm. can counter the riots and get the food flowing again. Just awful.

I love Rav Anava's intro of this Recent Video that was actually a Video taken in Brooklyn in August 2019 before Corona when what was normal in Olam HaZeh still applied..... It no longer applies. I agree with him that all of these sexual perversions that seem to have proliferated since America fell below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah in June of 2016 on Shavuot night are beyond intolerable. And I agree with him that 5G is patently very unhealthy. I am unconvinced though that 5G or ChemTrails is the cause of these perversions that really exploded that Shavuot night when Omar Mateen walked into that Gay Bar in Orlando and blew away exactly 49 homosexuals to become the 50th dead body in that bar at Alot HaShachar, dawn, when the SWAT team burst thru the walls of the bar. I believe that on that very night, the bulk of America slid from the 49th level of tumah into the Pi Tehom, the Abyss, of the 50th level of impurity which has no floor, but has a reality of infinite perversion. By the way, the first National chain store in America to force transgender bathrooms on all of their customers was Target Dept stores. And we wonder why the burning down of that Target in Minneapolis has become "emblematic" of this Floyd Gog Plague? So I do not believe that this moral collapse since June of 2016 has anything to do with Chemtrails, but has everything to do with the spiritual morass of America at Minus 50 which started in June of 2016.

I just received at important email alert from Nadia Matar of the Women in Green Organization which explains recent changes by Kushner over the last 2 months, in Trump's original Deal of the Millenmium or Century or Decade, whatever it is. Kushner's nuanced changes are horrifying and explain why in this new plague, Cities in Redstates are not protected. Oklahoma City is burning like Oakland, CA is burning. I will try to publish Nadia's very important eye opening email:

The US is trying to turn Sovereignty into Unilateral Withdrawal

Netanyahu is willing to accept the US proposal as is and is not determined to correct it. The Prime Minister’s willingness to stand for Israeli interests is in a state of decline. Opinion

Haggai Huberman

The exclusive news item published last news in Matzav Haruah, which revealed that the U.S. is hardening Trump’s Deal of the Century, and now it demands that the lines that will demarcate the area on which Israeli law will be applied will be pre-defined as a “clear border”, without the possibility of amending it, has caused many among the settlement leadership to demand that Netanyahu insist on changing the decision, and if he does not – then to refrain from applying sovereignty.

Until recently, there was a widespread understanding with the U.S. that sovereignty would be applied over 30 percent of the territory of Judea and Samaria – half of Area C – and the rest of Area C would remain with an undetermined status for the foreseeable future, including the possibility that Israel might also apply her sovereignty there as well, if the Palestinians continued to reject the plan, as they usually do.

But in recent weeks, the Americans have expressed a new demand: Israel must already give up any future claims on the part of Area C where she will not apply sovereignty, even if the Palestinians don’t accept the plan and refuse to come to the negotiating table. Continued....

6/01/2020 11:08 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

As we recall, in the original Trump plan, as it was presented to Israel in the festive ceremony at the White House on January 28th, it was noted that the attached map of sovereignty over 30 percent of Judea and Samaria, was a “conceptual” map only, over which there would be negotiations with Israel, in order to determine the map of sovereignty according to Israeli interests, and the interests of the settlement enterprise.

When the Americans published the map, it became clear that 15 communities in the entire area of Judea and Samaria would remain as enclaves within the area designated for a Palestinian state: Hermesh and Mevo Dotan in northern Samaria; The four communities of the mountain ridge – Elon Moreh, Itamar, Bracha and Yitzhar; Ateret in the heart of Binyamin; Meitsad, Ma’ale Amos and Karmei Tsur in the east and in the south, Gush Etzion; Telem, Adorah and Negohot west of Har Hevron; Beit Hagai and Otniel in the center of Har Hevron.

The reality that the plan proposes to these communities is catastrophic, and embitters all of the advantage in achieving sovereignty: In these communities, indefinitely, from now on, it will only be possible to build upward. This was not the original American plan. This is a change that was made about two months ago. Any intelligent person can understand that the intention is to suffocate these communities and evacuate them. No one would come to live in a place where they tell him “you are isolated, you will suffocate, and your future will be as an enclave in a Palestinian state”.

6/01/2020 11:11 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Part 3 of Nadia's email:This position already has practical, immediate ramifications: All City Building Plans (“Taba”) in these communities are already frozen in the Civil Administration’s Supreme Planning Board.

When representatives of Israel presented the demand to join these communities to a territorial contiguity, without changing the 70:30 ratio, they encountered American resistance – especially from Jared Kushner. It turns out that the conceptual map had become a map of fixed borders – even now, regardless of the current or future Palestinian position. Whether the Palestinians come to the negotiations or not, whether they accept the plan or not - the border is determined now, unilaterally.

And in addition: the Americans demand that in the part of Area C where Israel will not apply sovereignty there will be a building freeze – but only for Israelis. Because these territories are designated for a future Palestinian state. In the Trump plan, it states that “in the territories of the West Bank where it is not anticipated, according to this vision, to be part of the State of Israel, Israel will not build new settlements, expand existing settlements or promote plans to build in these areas. Israel will not expand the Israeli enclaves (that is, the 15 communities mentioned above – H.H) or promote plans to expand them in the territories beyond their present footprint”.

The plan also states that Israel “will not destroy any structure that exists at the time of this writing and will assure legislation and/or legal resolution to secure this result”. This refers to illegal Palestinian building. (The only exception is “destruction of structures that present a security hazard, as will be determined by the State of Israel, or destruction of structures as punishment for acts of terror”).

Unprecedented building freeze

In a lecture given by U.S. Ambassador David Friedman at the Jerusalem Institute for Public and State Affairs on February 9th, he praised the State of Israel for “going the distance in agreeing to freeze construction in areas that the plan designates for a Palestinian state in Area C. This is a significant commitment that was not given in any prior agreement”. Friedman reveals here that Israel had agreed that half of Area C, where sovereignty will not be applied, another 30 percent of the territory of Judea and Samaria, are a down payment for a future Palestinian state – even if the Palestinians do not enter into negotiations, and even if they do not accept the plan.

6/01/2020 11:13 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Part 4 of Nadia's email: And what will happen after 4 years of this freeze? This is not clear. What is clear is that the Palestinians will take advantage of these four years to determine facts on the ground by building in the field at their pleasure, as they are already doing. And if the Civil Administration is currently lax in enforcing its control over the territory, in the four next years there will be no such enforcement at all. Practically, we will lose half of Area C that is now under our control.

This is the main problem of the sovereignty plan! Not the willingness to consent to a Palestinian state and not the traffic arteries to the Jewish communities that would be under Palestinian control in the future. Because these things depend on the Palestinians entering into negotiations and accepting the Trump plan. And if they do not, those things will not happen anyway.

Regarding the sovereignty map, this is an Israeli-American agreement that does not depend on the Palestinian position at all. It bestows an immediate and unilateral status to the sovereignty map, which determines the fixed borders now, with Israeli-American agreement, regardless of the Palestinian position.

With Israel’s agreement to this, as demanded by Jared Kushner, head of the American team and President Trump’s son-in-law, Israel again finds itself in a sort of unilateral and irreversible withdrawal, this time from Judea and Samaria, very like Arik Sharon’s Disengagement.

The Trump plan is an agreement between Israel and the U.S., which obligates only these two parties. Therefore, Palestinian rejectionism will not free Israel from the extensive concessions in the agreement that she made with the U.S.

It is not irreversible

The reality that I described is indeed bleak – but reversible. The Americans themselves are not consolidated and as we revealed last week in Matzav Haruah, there are some fairly complex disagreements between Vice President Pence supported by Ambassador Friedman, and Jared Kushner, the ‘bad guy’ in this story. Instead of struggling over the topic of recognition of a Palestinian state or the subject of traffic arteries – two issues that are not critical at the moment – we must focus the struggle on the main thing: the map.

Netanyahu can stand before the Americans and correct the map – provided that he is resolute enough to do so. Unfortunately, at the moment, he does not seem to have the required resoluteness. Netanyahu, who, in the past, could stand resolutely before the Obama administration, is willing now to accept his friend Donald Trump’s American proposal as is, even at the cost of abandoning the 15 communities, even with the one-sided cost of this process, the main thing is that he will be able to make a check mark on the paragraph “I brought sovereignty”. Bibi’s fighting spirit and willingness to stand strong for Israeli interests are in decline.

And this is why we must not agree. Netanyahu can remind his friend Trump that his commitment in the ceremony in the month of February was to sovereignty over all of the communities without exception, territorial contiguity with the State of Israel – and that is what must be.

Part 5, the Final part of Nadia's email:
Not limited sovereignty. To conclude in advance that if the Palestinians do not enter into negotiations, the other half of Area C would return to Israeli control, exactly as was stated in the Oslo Accord.

Kushner Brags how his Peace Plan Prevents Jews from Building in Judea-Samaria. A more proper name for the US plan is Piece Plan - The US Real Estate Deal of the Century.

During the interview, Kushner tells the Al-Jazeera host: “First of all these settlements will not be expanded will not be allowed to expand in the the new plan.”

“Under this plan what we’ve done is we’ve capped the growth of the Israeli settlements for four years. So there’s never been a four year freeze before Israel has agreed to do that in exchange for us recognizing those settlements” Kushner added.

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling Proverbs 16:18

Anyone who even hints a division of the Holy Land, to give away even a grain of its soil for "peace", will suffer G'd's Wrath and Judgment. So President Trump should be very careful since G'd Appoints kings and Deposes kings, Daniel 2:21. "If the US will even hint a division of My Holy Land, I will divide it!" So he should call back his team and bury his "piece" plan.

By they way, when Kushner says Israel has agreed he must mean Pippi Nethanyahu. But Pippi is not Israel and he is also not a Despot. Hence he cannot do as he please against the wishes of Israel and certainly not against the wishes of the King and Creator of the world, HKB'H. Already the back-pedaling has begun, with Pippi Netanyahu walking back the annexation pledge and Jared Kushner chasing after Abbas. I've seen this movie before.

Concerning the toxic poisonous chemtrails, Rabbi Anava did say there were tests made that proved that such a result DID HAPPEN. The combination of chemicals, hence chemtrails, being spewed forth into our atmosphere is slowly poisonous human bodies. Trump got rid of one (or more) underground launching areas for these chems, but there are a few more, dug into islands and terrains, that continue their evil. There is so much on Trumps (and the good military guys) plate, I find it hard to believe “they” can do it all.

Only by cutting off the head of the evil snake will it cease. This insurgency attack on the US could be the last straw. Time will tell. But it does seem to be coming to a showdown.

I also found the intro to Rabbi Anava’s latest published video (from 2019) to be very haunting. And that it was his gr grandfather, whom he resembles was also a surprise.

Ginno here
Dov, from your comments, it seems Kushner wants Israel to declare a fixed border that will remain permanently regardless of what Palestinians want. Therefore the 15 enclaves won't be able to expand. They weren't growing much anyway, so I don't see the problem. My question is, since you mentioned Sharon: those communities will be evacuated by force? I don't see how Bibi could do such a thing, specially when there's no peace agreement and a final resolution to the conflict. He said nobody will have to leave their homes. Israel is going to do it just for American protection from the Europeans to annex the big blocs? Also I'm worried about Hashem's response.

Ginno: First of all, Elon Moreh and Othniel are certainly worth fighting for. I believe that both of them were actually expanding horizontally.

The more insidious aspect of Kushners recently added demand is that in order for us to annex our 50% of Area C, we have to PERMANENTLY mevater over any claim to the other 50% of Area C in writing with the Americans irrespective of how the Squatter Nation behaves over the next 4 yrs when they are supposed to negotiate with us or with the US.

And what is Saudi Arabia doing on Har haBayit? It seems to me that SA, Jordan and Turkey are plotting together, and this story from two sites is just a ruse to keep us off track and add more power to the muslims. We need to keep our heads up and not believe every word they say.

HDG: the link inside the article says: Trump peace plan drives wedge between leaders of settler movement. There is a disagreement between the mayor of Efrat (who wants the PA state, but I think no annexation) and the rest of Yesha who don’t want a PA state. If annexation means a PA state, they don’t want the annexation. Does this make it clearer?

Reb Dov indicated that he was taking a few days off from posting. Maybe we all can help each other.

Re Saudia Arabia: there is a tug-of-war between Turkey and Saudi Arabia (Yishmael) = they are two opposing Islamic strains. Personally, I think it good that they are ‘fighting’ over our Har Habayit. Maybe a good old fashioned earth quake will settle their ‘argument’ and leave them in the dust so we Jews can begin rebuilding the Third Beis and Hashem can send it down from Shamayim :-)

I think that the PA want Turkey’s money while Jordan might prefer SA’s co-sharing. Anyway, Turkey means trouble, trouble, trouble. In my estimation both China and Turkey are highly dangerous to the world.

Neshama: 60% of Judea and Samaria is in Area C with full Civil and Security control under the IDF. Under Trump's Deal announced on Rosh Chodesh Shevat, 50% of that 60% (which is 30% of the total) would be ultimately annexed by Israel. The other 50% of the same 60% would be part of the Squatter nation's State along with the 40% that makes up Areas A and B. But that would only occur if the Pals (Squatter nation) negotiated with Israel in good faith, ended school textbook incitement, stopped payments to the families of murderers in Israeli jails, and relinquished all claims to a so called right of return to all lands within the 1949 Armistice Line. They would have 4 yrs to negotiate a final agreement. One of the big changes in the last 3 months made by the Trump Admin is the requirement that when Israel relinquishes any claim on the 50% of Area C before annexing the other 50% of Area C and all yishuvim in Yesha, that relinquishing of any claim on half of Area C WOULD BE PERMANENT. Four yrs from now when the Pals do not negotiate in good faith, that 50% of Area C would still be out of Israeli hands "forever"!

But in this Era of the Brit Milah of Yitzchak Avinu, Edom can no longer suggest that the Jews must in perpetuity relinquish 50% of Area C for some future iteration of the Squatter nation that may get its act together 50 or 100 yrs from now. Edom's future reward in Eretz Yisrael ended ended when Yitzchak was given Brit Milah. Unlike Yishmael, Esav receives no reward for a mitzvah that he himself does not perform.

Plague of Human Locusts

I viewed today a video of human locusts descending upon Macy’s department store in New York. In itself this is a tragic sight, but ever more so when taking into account that this scene has repeated itself in many places across the US.

The President is taking a forceful position and will soon order the US army to fill the void created by either incompetence or understaffed local police and National Guard.

The President has realized that the respective law enforcement agencies are ineffective and drastically understaffed. He will by necessity, as I have predicted and warned many times in the past, reintroduce the Selective Service bill (draft) which was nullified in the 1970s.

There are many thoughts which I want to share with you, dear reader, this week, however they all pale before the most clear, pressing, and important message: send your children to Israel now.

Get them away from the inevitable insatiable appetite of the draft. To yeshivot Yes, to university Yes, to the IDF Yes, to pick vegetables in the Negev Yes; just send them here.

Once the bill is passed your lives will take a turn for the worse.

I would argue that as we enter this new era of the Brit Milah of Yitzchak Avinu, the above quote is the precise reason why the USA is suffering from the full brunt of this second major Messianic plague of FloydGog. So far the vast majority of Jews in America, Chas veShalom, have not been specifically targeted for more pain and suffering from this plague than has already affected the General population. But with that type of wickedness at loose in the US, Jews have not been spared either. They are sitting on a razor's edge. They have to ask themselves if they have been properly served by their Rabbei'im by remaining in their respective cesspools without pleas for communal Aliyah from their Rabbei'im for a decade after their places of residence in America could be halakhically categorized as cesspools. Serious reflection about communities staying put in their cesspools needs to be asked right now, a decade late and perhaps a few dollars short.

American Jews on "A razor's edge" is right.

The UK also has a history of suspicious deaths of Black people in police custody.
It needs an investigation and a change in police procedure.
There needs to be more anti-racist education.
And there truly need to be reparations for African-Americans.


The Black Lives Matter movement has been a BDS supporter at best, outright anti-Israel at worst.
Their website though does not currently mention Israel.

People have been recently sharing online, a graffiti from London called "Freedom for Humanity" which is based on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, showing old white men running the world as a chess piece. The men look mostly "Jewish."
Even the local authority in London had it painted over when it appeared in 2012.
More information is available on Wikipedia.

There is a video doing the rounds by Kimberley Latrice Jones, an author and politician from Atlanta.
It does not mention Jews, and it has some home truths, but she advocates that the looting is acceptable because it helps redress the economic imbalance that slavery caused.
Which is a twisted morality.
How long until people are accusing Jews of traditional anti-Semitic trope "economic" crimes.

Farrakhan is scheduled to make an internet speech on July 4th, which is a Shabbos.

What is happening with the USA nowadays? Where is America in prophecy?

Four possible clues and none show America as a superpower:

Ezekiel 38:13 lists three nations who will be bystanders in the future war of Gog and Magog

Sheba and Dedan and merchants of Tarshish and all its magnates will say to you, "Are you coming to take spoil? Have you assembled your assembly to plunder loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take livestock and possessions, to take much spoil?"

Sheba and Dedan are cities in Saudi Arabia
Merchants of Tarshish represents Spaniards who sailed from Spain to bring back tin to Britain
The merchant is the symbol for Britain – the magnets may then represent America and colonies. (All three nations are depicted as powerless)

Daniel 7:4 describes two modern day empires that are left out of Daniel’s 7 world empires:

The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings; I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon two feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

The lion is the symbol for Britain. The Eagle is the symbol for America whose wings are plucked off while the lion is in a standing or defensive position.

Daniel 7:24 Revived Rome will be split into 10 divisions each with a leader

And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom shall ten kings arise; and another shall arise after them; and he shall be diverse from the former, and he shall put down three kings.

Could North America be one of the three kings conquered by the "another"?

Daniel 11:40 In the final battle of Armageddon the ‘him‘ that the two kings are attacking is the army of ‘Western Alliance’ that includes North America

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through.

Western Alliance (him) – revived Roman Empire (Psalm 2:1-4; Dan. 11:40)

Why have nations gathered and [why do] kingdoms think vain things?;Kings of a land stand up, and nobles take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed?;"Let us break their bands and cast off their cords from us."; He Who dwells in Heaven laughs; the Lord mocks them.

Meir- Western Alliance? Daniel does not mention a Western Alliance.

Ginno- It has been 7 1/2 yrs since Hurricane Sandy and the Sandy Hook Massacre in Connecticut in Oct, Nov and Dec 2012. The Gemorrah warning Jews about living in countries and States who joyfully start sanctifying homosexual marriage is in Chullin 92 which in Hebrew can mean Mundane Slaughter or Sandys as a double entendre. The New York State Assembly officially passed homosexual marriage legislation, legalizing it officially in June 2011. Connecticut happily passed similar legislation sanctfying homo marriage in Nov of 2008!. So G-d sent His Big Warnings, the two Sandys, and almost every Rav in NewYork and Conn. simply ignored the Warning! This was a massive act of Spiritual malpractice by every single one of them. The Mea Culpa will be when they come out with an equally vocal statement equivalent to the noise of Hurricane Sandy pounding themselves on the chest for ignoring G-d's warning about His coming Wrath.

“75 years after the second war will come the final and greatest war that will make the second seem even smaller,” the Chofetz Chaim. “There will be another great war, and after that, the Jews will count ten sabbatical years, after which there will be the last sabbatical year. Then there will be an incredible amount of conflict in the world… lucky is anyone who survives this.”

This prophecy is consistent with a section of the Talmud (Sanhedrin 97b) which teaches about the coming of Ben David (i.e. The Messiah).

According to the precise understanding of the Chofetz Chaim, the third war is prophesied to begin in the summer of 2020.

The next sabbatical year, scheduled to arrive in Hebrew year 5782 or 2022, is not expected to arrive without the Messiah according to the prediction by the Chofetz Chaim.

Moshiach is the cause of [the war]. He stands up for Jerusalem and they come after us because of it.

“And a redeemer shall come to Tziyon, and to those in Yaakov who repent of [their] transgression, says the L-rd.

Reb Dov:

I think one lesson of the events of 5780, is a slow build-up, followed by a rapid speed of change.

And we were taught by the the last Lubavitch Rebbe that Mashiach will come suddenly.
The story I mentioned before, of some Hasidim who were outside the door to his study.
And he opened the door and stood there, giving them a surprise.
And he told them...this is how Mashiach will arrive - suddenly.

Some events of the year -

Assassination of Soleimani - he was marked man, but the news of his death came at night and there had been little public build up.

Australian fires - they raged for weeks - but suddenly floods happened.

Brexit - wrangling and deadlock for over two years, then Boris Johnson won the general election by a landslide, and Brexit became law a few weeks later.

The Trump Peace Plan - we knew it was in the works shortly after Trump took office - but we thought it would be revealed summer 2019. Then it suddenly appeared late winter.

Israeli government - three deadlocked elections, talk of a fourth, then Bibi and Benny Gantz surprisingly announce a take-it-in-turns Prime Ministerial coalition.

Coronavirus/Covid 19 - there was a few months build up - but in over just two weeks the whole world went into lockdown, and with it a chunk of the world economy.

George Floyd/Black Lives Matter - there has been police brutality for decades, and Black Lives Matter have campaigned since 2013 - but in just two weeks there are mass protests throughout the world of people of all ethnicities, and decades old statues are removed in Europe, and TV shows withdrawn from viewing, and it's a whole new socio-cultural landscape.

Hi Dov,

It seems that the year 5781/5782 is the year of Redemption. But, actually, I can't imagine how he can create this. Everything has been very unpredictable.

And you should know, that there is a prominent rabbi known today for his pioneering kiruv work, Master of many other prominent kiruv rabbis, who is in prison for crimes that never existed. I do not need to mention names, because I have mentioned them several times before.

There is a lot of interconnectedness, and it is certainly more than clear to me in this sense.

What Neshama said above about Turkey makes me trust even less the words from the Arab Middle East about them wanting to cooperate with us and be friendly towards us...this, and more, is why we should trust that Only Hashem can give us the Land of Israel.

And we don't need to insult other countries, either; even the most recent plan of the United States, with all its good intentions, is faulty from the beginning.

No nation can do the job we need done. When the new olim start coming, we will need room for them all, be'ezrath H'!!!

I do not buy the Turkey's foreign minister narrative : they wish all the muslim countries would follow them against Israel but it's just a wish, nothing real here.

In fact, no surprise this statement comes now :
* Israel is getting prepared to annex parts of Judea, which is an incredibly positive thing regarding the gueoula process, even if it starts with fears and is clearly not perfect. Just remember 1948, many eminent Rabbis did not believe it had God's approval, now in 2020 almost all of them admit they were wrong because Hashem intervenes in History the way He wants, not us want.
And He has to blind the Satan, just like He always do (ie : King David coming from the moabites, or Moshé rabbénou being raised like an Egyptian prince).
Our ennemies understand better than we this is something that will completely destroy their narrative of erasing israel from the map and hating the jews (or loving the fake palestinian people).

* Last weekend, the Libya's N°2 after general Haftar wrote an article in an israeli's newspaper (makor rishon) asking Israel to become a clear and full ally of its party against Turkey's attempt to take the country (along with the local islamists, Russia and probably China, in order to take the gas and oil from them.)

Israel is already supporting Haftar with Italy, but in the shadow.

Who could dream just 20 years ago that Arab nations like Libya would ask for Israel's help and be ready to fully open recognition of Israel ?

We should be very very trustful that Hashem is helping Israel to become the new superpower in the Middle East with a new alliance with the USA (the good part of Eisav) and the Arab countries (the good part of Ishmael), against UE (the bad part of Essav, with China) and the bad part of Ishmael (Turkey + Iran and their allies).

This is happening right now before our eyes.

The court will also make a judgment concerning the Israeli government’s intention to implement the plan, calling on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the President of the United States, Donald Trump to defend their decision to relinquish the Biblically mandated borders of the Land of Israel, an act that contravenes the Torah. Also listed as defendants are the Israeli High Court and The International Court of Justice in The Hague.

Two things, a crescendo of opportunity.
1. Rare Solar Eclipse Marks 3,332nd Anniversary of 12 Spies Entering Land of Israel . We are in the solar eclipse this morning til 9:30.
Reb Dov, any comments on this, thetiming?

2. This came to mind on Shabbat. Why is the trial of Netanyahu coming at the same time as crucial deliberations over the sanctity of the Land of ISRAEL ? Why was the timing of all the election negotiations set to coincide with crucial deliberations about the future of Eretz Yisrael and the settlers and our farming capabilities (ie, the Jordan Valley), and the opportunity of expanding our settling the Land as commanded by HaShem?

3. Also, at the same time, as a result of the virus and riots, min haShamayim, we are witnessing a flood of Jews wanting to move to Eretz Yisrael. So much so that the JA is re-examining and changing the process of allowing mass numbers of Jews gaining entry to Eretz Yisrael.

All of this is NO COINCIDENCE. It is an acceleration of the Geula process!

And I propose to number 2 above, that the PM is not on trial for the sins reported in the papers and on social media, HE IS BEING PROSECUTED AND ON TRIAL FOR HIS DECISION MAKING WITH RESPECT TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL, taking place right now, that the Eyes of Hashem are watching right now!

We Jews living in Eretz Yisrael must raise our voices in supplication to Hashem to prevent a disaster in the making. Our voices will be heard on high, we must stop the wholesale surrender of our Holy sites and any part of our gift to Avraham Abinu and Yaakov Avinu about our rights to this Land. We will need more homes to b3 built for the masses of Olim returning.

Yes, Ginno. I used to read the relevent 41st or 42nd Kinnah for Tisha B'Av in the shadow of the statue sitting on Art Hill in S. Louis every Tisha B'Av. It was a "welcome" break from sitting in shul at the S Louis Agudah for 4 hours on Tisha B'Av morning. It is less than a 20 minute drive from the Univ. City Agudah on Delmar to Art Hill in Forest Park. The Art Hill location was the nerve center and the Main Promenade and the Cascade Waterfall for the 1904 World's Fair where they moved the statue to that location when the Fair ended. It originally had been placed at the World's Fair Main Entrance at Lindell and DeBaliviere, and was moved to Art Hill when the 1904 World's Fair closed up shop. Most of the buildings to the World's Fair were made of plaster and hemp and were all torn down. The Massive FerrisWheel built by Mr. Ferris himself was sold for scrap metal, but the base was buried under the fairgrounds of the Forest Park Golf Course. The only surviving structures were the Jefferson Memorial now the MO Historical Society, The Art Museum, The 1904 W. Fair Pavillion, the massive Bird Cage at the S Louis Zoo, and the King Louie IX statue. The Fair at the time was known as the Centennial Exposition of the Louisiana Purchase (by Pres Jefferson in 1803). So much for trivia. From the moment the city of S Louis stuck that Rasha sitting on a horse holding a cross at the entrance to the Fair, it was downhill all the way. The city never recovered.

Neshama: partial eclipse with 1/3 of the Sun blocked here in Israel 3331 years after the Sin of the Spies... which a whole bunch of Rabbanim in America are repeating again. Remember: The Sin was a full year and two months AFTER receiving the Torah. We were at Sinai itself from Rosh Chodesh Siwan 2448 until the 20th of Iyar 2449, almost a full yr.

If Bibi actually annexes something in July and August, we can then and only then draw conclusions connecting that to his Erev Rav Kangaroo Ct appearance.

While 80,000 Jews want to make Aliyah from America because they sense the Makom Sakanah that America is becoming, only R. Zecharia Wallerstein seemed to recognize this salient fact. Yet 2 weeks later after being sternly reprimanded by some of New York's finest g'virim, even he seems to be changing his tune.

There are two spiritual matters and perhaps a third where the Erev Rav authorities,sometimes swerve into the Truth.

1. They ingather exiles. From May 1948 until the present day, they have ingathered more than ten times the State of Israel's initial population of just over 600,000 Jews. Jewish Pop. totals today exceed 6.5 million halakhic Jews. I am not including Russian goyim and Reform converts.

2. Qlipah Noga Generals like Ariel Sharon have often won life saving wars and battles for our survival, blessed to do so by the Almighty.

3. Archeaological digs such as the Givati Parking lot dig in the City of David have uncovered the Palace of the Kings of Judea for 500 yrs from David thru Hezekiah until Tzidhiyahu (who was no Tzaddiq). In the course of digging, archaeologists have found the Signet seals of King Hezekiyahu and the greatest prophet of the time of the Kings, Yishiyahu haNavi. And they have also found the signet seals of two of the four officers of King Tzidkiyahu who recommended that Yirmiyahu be lowered into a pit in Yirmiyahu 38 for suggesting to the king that we surrender to the Babylonian forces of Nebuchadnezzar, for had the king surrendered, the Babylonians would have spared his life, the lives of his children, and the lives of the residendents of Yerushalayim. Tzidkiyahu ignored Yirmiyahu's advice, and all of his sons were killed along with a half a million Yerushalmis. This archaeology solidly connects us to our ancient heritage.

Besides these things, when making Aliyah, do not expect holy things from our government. Find it by being here and keeping mitzvot, especially trumot and Maaserot. Any Rav who cannot see that America is now a Makom Sakanah and getting worse is doing a tremendous disservice to those who hang on his advice.

For all those worrying about how to get to Israel, for financial assistance and otherwise:


6/23/2020 10:10 AM  
Blogger Neshama said...

I received a concerned comment on my previous post about “Assistance in Moving to Israel”. I am posting my response here in case others are also concerned.

Not all are xtian orgs. They are very concerned and have in mind what happened in Europe when there was no one to save many Jews. Remember there were righteous gentiles that hid Jews for the duration. So it is not entirely out of the question. In fact they have organized within the US to save Jews from marauding gangs and threats of attacks from antisemites that might be ransacking Jewish neighborhoods. I’m not sure that for pikuach nefesh one is not allowed to do this. There are many Americans that have already moved to Israel under such arrangements over the years. One needs to know whether YOU are in a time of “sakana” situation or not. In the event of “SAKANA” it might be advisable.

Nevertheless, the Jewish Agency is formulating a way to handle the thousands and thousands of Jews wanting to move to Israel.

My advice is to take very little if at all, of any furniture. I found the most important items worth shipping, are the Adult high quality beds and frames, your night sleep is very very important; plus extra sheets to last many years. For children, it is much less expensive to purchase them here in Israel than to ship.
The other important items are lamps, as they are not the same here; mostly ceiling types and chandeliers. Also, 100 and 500 incandescent light bulbs. The LEDs are highly dangerous and unhealthy on the eyes and difficult for reading. Also bring your Shabbos pots and Shabbos table dressings if you own them. Also all your clothing, as one does not know how they will adjust to the weather here, which is mild. I found that I gave away half my US wardrobe, as it wasn’t appropriate, but I lived in Boro Park and we dressed different than other Jews.
A family might enjoy setting up home in a fresh and different manner than in the States to be rewarding and eventful.
Another good piece of info. I bought those huge gallon plastic containers and put all my clothing, linens, and important files one might have into them. Because once sealed they kept everything clean and nice smelling - as opposed to paper/cardboard boxes that can get wet and ruin contents.
ALSO: when your “small” shipment (which can be shared with others in a “Container” arrives, do NOT LET IT SIT ANYWHERE ON THE DOCKS. BE THERE TO RECEIVE IT ASAP. Keep in touch with shipping co. to be notified where everything is. Thefts are not uncommon.
Don’t be afraid, just make a plan of action firstly for whatever might happen in your neighborhood, and secondly plan out and begin packing what you don’t use daily. You can live half-here and half-there for a while; it helps to make the transition. It can even be exciting.

To all those who are shocked about my post.

Yes I understand, I went thru Nefesh. But Nefesh cannot handle everyone who signed up at the present time. And there are thousands more wanting to make Aliyah. And maybe the Jewish Agency might set up a waiting list. And maybe it becomes a situation of sakana?
At present only Citizens and Olim can fly in. There may be some allowance for rescuing Jews. We need to wait and see if things might turn for the chv”s worse. Remember the righteous gentiles.

In an ordinary year I also would say no.

These Americans just don’t understand what it’s like living in this Land with enemies constantly trying to get rid of us.

Sorry for the off-topic, but I just found out that Eichmann was hanged on Iyar 28 (June 1st, 1962)... that's Yom Yerushalaim! (exactly five years before Jerusalem was liberated, according to the Hebrew calendar). I'm sure there's an important significance in Sefirat HaOmer for Iyar 28. I think the Vilna Gaon mentioned both Yom Haatzmaut and Yom Yerushalaim (obviously not the Israeli holidays but their correspondent days in the Omer). Also I heard somewhere that HaRav Abraham HaKohen Kook made Aliyah on a boat and reached Ottoman Eretz Israel on this day (1902 maybe?). Also the initial Hebrew letters of Iyar give "Yom Yerushalaim-Eretz Yisrael", corresponding to our two modern holidays during that month.

I said a while back that Trump mostlikely does not know what is really in the “Deal”. He left it up graciously to his son-in-law. And I said that he would not agree with Kushner. Now, it appears in the JPost:

"As for what Trump is likely to announce, Axios reported that he has soured on Kushner’s advice, because his son-in-law and adviser has been too liberal and hurt him politically. The site quoted a source as saying the president wants “no more of Jared’s woke s***,” woke being a slang term for progressive or politically correct. Kushner is thought to favor a more gradual sovereignty move by Israel. The article focused mostly on criminal justice reform, but allowing Israel to extend its sovereignty is strongly opposed by the Left worldwide, which is one way in which it could appeal to Trump."

They will never leave. All the time they threaten. Truth is they do nothing for the Orthodox community. But the power of perks blind justice, just like bribes. We need to throw all the bums out. Even Tibi stepped up to voice criticsm. Almost makes me like the guy.

Could Mashiah arrive if/when Bibi falls to his failure to revive the economy AND deal with corona? Or will it be the same old? Will Israel's Lockdown Economy Sink Bibi? R' Dovid Mark asks the question, and of course I don't know...but a girl can hope, can't she?

One major change on its way now: Amiram Ben-Uliel's trial has taken a dramatic turn.

Attorney Asher Ohayon, who represents the suspect who was convicted of murdering an Arab family in the town of Duma, presented new evidence to the district court suggesting that the murders were carried out in a manner completely different from what was described in the verdict.

The evidence includes testimony from members of the Dawabsheh family, including Ahmed who witnessed the attack and described it as unfolding in a different way.

In light of this new evidence, Ohayon asked that the conviction of his client, Amiram Ben-Uliel, be thrown out. [More at the link above.]

For prayer: Amiram ben Nurit.

London Male, also look at all of the fires in the US and Iran back and forth(Tomer Devorah) blog lists it well....oil and electrical, I believe.
In other words, natural resources and basic survival elements are being sabotaged.

Refuah Shleimah Reb Dov. Pine trees are very healing, maybe a week up in a 🌲 pine tree lined hill away from sivilization might help. Wishing you and your family Brachot and Shefa min haShamayim.

sometimes my comments get lossed also somewhere.
any complaints? we should start our own blog, i guess.
media is in the habit of under reporting, or falsely reporting all over Edom, more than anything else nowadays.
and indeed racist polemics are all over Edom too. all the millennials ever learnd about at school.
ofcourse any criticism of Obama's was doomed racist all over also. but it is the other way around. they got it inside out, or upside down. it should have been fair to criticise a black president also (sic)

Anyone who would like to detox from any EMF including 5G, go to the park and walk or stand with naked feet on grass and or earth for min 20 min, preferably under the branches where 5 G has not so much irradiated the earth yet , try to do it in the morning and evening. Personally nowadays i eat breakfast like that every day and in the evening i do the same while doing hitbodedut. Also , tefilot ascend better to Hashem if you do them in nature. Try. It helps for many other health issues too Read book called Earthing sold at Amazon

Does anyone remember years ago after the Fukushima reactor incident where people on this blog were waiting for a Pacific coast radiation plague? I reminded everyone that the ocean is large beyond most abilities to understand and no nuclear reactor could possibly poison it except in very small areas?
Please also believe me when I tell you that cellular telephony including the 5g protocol are safe.
My G-d fearing great-grandmother was uneasy when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon upon which we bless our Maker and the months He has appointed. I do not feel any emuna lies within in these American conspiracy cults.
Wear the uncomfortable mask correctly, stand in fear before Hashem, obey the rabbinate of your community as you are commanded, obey the command of your doctors and health officials who insist you wear a mask not to protect yourself as much as to shield the innocent blood of those around you should you become infected.
Actually do not believe me, to educate yourselves to the point where you can understand might take many years in university but at least find a credible engineer or physician competent and credentialed in the specific issues to comment. I also ask you NOT to trust social media or popular video websites as a source for your understanding of politics or technology, these are websites who also teach you to get DIY free satellite wifi by hot-gluing paperclips to an old USB cable and a 9v battery.
Have emuna, move to a religious community in E"Y if possible, have some extra food and a way to purify water, plan for your defense and evacuation. Most importantly I beg you to not be swayed by cults or fearmongers!

Emergency Proclamation From Shaarei Shalom Rabbi Nussbaum and Rabbi Wosner

“Innumerable testimonies have been presented before the Rabbinic Court attesting that the entire decree concerning masks is for vanity and uselessness, and is not necessary from a medical point of view.”

'The rabbis classified the current government restrictions against performing religious duties as Arakta D’Masanta (ערקתא דמסנתא, “even to change the strap of a sandal.”).’

I allowed the posting of the 5G comment because Rav Anava spoke about 5G's dangers for one hour. Personally, I have no comment on it. But buzzing electric wires do make me feel nervous, but that might be psychological.

Back on May 10th to 15th, we were down to 10 to 20 new cases per day. Then they opened all the Middle Schools and High Schools, and we were up to 2000 new cases per day. Way too many Middle School kids rebel. It is in their nature to be rebellious against rules. There is evidence that this 2nd wave started with them. I can see opening schools through 4th grade. After that one must tread carefully. In Yeshivah if everyone strictly wore a bona fide mask, perhaps we could relax restrictions. I have seen the evidence that people with even moderate cases of losing their sense of smell and difficulty breathing might have developed longterm if not lifelong damage from Covid.

Daven to G-d. Take plentiful amounts of Quercetin, NAC, Vit. C and D complex and Zinc ion, and reduce dignificantly your odds of contracting a serious case of Covid. If you get sick, within a day start a regimen of HydroxyChloroquine or Chloroquine plus Zinc, and most likely the viral infection will not leave you with lifelong damage. Follow the Reprobate Trump hating mob by refraining from HCQ, and you increase the odds of contracting a degenerative case of the disease.

This is a real plague, but there are basic anti-virals and preventatives that can almost guarantee a minor case of the disease. This is not the flu or the cold.

When it's nipped in the bud, this virus is quite simple to cure. Just what the ptb's do not want and that is why from the start they didn't allow the use of the very successful Hydroxy cocktail. What is the worst are the ventilators because that's sort of a sure kill. There are a # of reasons to make sure that this virus lives on (strange how it doesn't have a life span). First, to break the economy; second trial test for controlling the population; third, depopulation; fourth, make sure there's a vaccine (which always has the potential, purposely, and sometimes not purposely for causing further troubles, disease) for them to make a fortune. In the meantime, lockdown all that is holy such as closing yeshivot, schools. It goes on & on. Follow the money and connect the dots and do not believe any of the mainstream news anywhere. This is the time when 'truth' will almost completely disappear from the world. We, as Jews, need only to put our total faith & trust in H'. If we can do that, Moshiach is here immediately. Any which way, he will show up when H' deems it so. May it be immediately.

Early trials of the drug Fenofibrate show encouraging anti - Covid 19 results at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and New York's Icahn School of Medicine.

"In lab studies, the cholesterol-lowering drug Fenofibrate (Tricor) showed extremely promising results. By allowing lung cells to burn more fat, Fenofibrate breaks the virus' grip on these cells, and prevents SARS CoV-2's ability to reproduce.
In fact, within only five days of treatment, the virus almost completely disappeared."

P.S. I wear an anti-microbial cloth masks in public, sometimes and N95 instead if the place is really crowded.
Though thank G-D I have avoid such places.
The are learned Rabbis who advocate wearing a mask in these times.

"Rabbi Ben-Tzion Mutzafi, one of the leading Sephardic halakhic authorities, on Tuesday morning harshly criticized those who attend synagogue without wearing a mask, Kikar Hashabbat reported."

Many of the Rabbis are really clueless on what's really going on. They don't realize that it's all manipulated. Today, it was publicized that a bunch of 'Front Line Doctors' have come out against this whole politization of this virus and the truth is being told to the world Wake up. Many have known this from the start, but the msmedia makes sure that everything is covered up. By tomorrow, many will know the real truth about the masks, the distances and the main thing - the wonderful cure within the first five days of the Covid and that is the Hydroxychloroquin cocktail! That is the reason, those in power pushing for a vaccine are so against it. Now truth will be out there for everyone to see. Already many videos have been taken off. Praying for Moshiach!!!
