And the Dead Do Not Praise the L-rd, Neither any that Go Down to Duma

Please forgive the shorthand brevity of this new post.  I will gladly explain the reason for my brevity in the Comments.

To be honest, I have noticed an uncharacteristic inconsistency in this second to last verse in Psalm 115 for as long as I have been saying Hallel (Psalms 113- 118) as a Baal Teshuvah in the early 1980s.  Every Chag except Purim and every Rosh Chodesh includes this verse whether full Hallel or Half Hallel is recited.  Something about it was unsettling, and early on I put my finger on it:  I am speaking about Psalm 115:17.   Psalm 115 is the third psalm in Hallel, and even when only half-Hallel is said, verse 17 is included.

  לֹא הַמֵּתִים, יְהַלְלוּ-יָהּ;    וְלֹא, כָּל-יֹרְדֵי דוּמָה. 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence (Duma);

יח  וַאֲנַחְנוּ, נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ--    מֵעַתָּה וְעַד-עוֹלָם:

הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for ever. {N}


We are told at the beginning of this verse that the Dead do not praise HaShem.  So If those who go down to Duma are those who need to have their souls cleansed for up to 11 months in Gehinnom after they die, why emphasize that they ALSO do not praise HaShem??  According to this peirush, Duma is the Angel that guards the Gate to the fires of Gehinnom.  Yes, we are talking about an unusual Fire that tries all Ten Sefirot of the Neshamah.  This is no ordinary fire, but if the Psalmist, David, is trying to emphasize the worst possible punishment against the Dead, Gehinnom does not hold a candle to eternal cancellation of the soul or Kaf HaKela, when the Angels fling one's soul across the Universe back and forth for 100 years or 1000 years or Eternity (a form of Angelic Chai ALai) mentioned in Shmuel Aleph 25:29.  Assuredly, those who are in Kaf HaKela do not praise HaShem either.  So we are stuck with the apparent redundant nature that the Dead do not praise Kah including those who do not go down to Gehinnom or those who go to Kaf HaKela or those who go down to She'ol or those who go directly into Gan Eden....  Take your pick.

Usually when the Psalms mention two things in parallel with each other, one sees a comparison between something more kal or light with something more chamur or stronger in order that the addition of the new aspect at the end of the pasuk adds a Chiddush.  For instance, 

ז  צַדִּיק יְהוָה, בְּכָל-דְּרָכָיו;    וְחָסִיד, בְּכָל-מַעֲשָׂיו. 17 The LORD is righteous in all His ways, and a Chassid in all His works.  from Psalm 145

From here we see that in all G-d's ways measured by His Laws, He is Just, but Beyond the Measure of His attribute of Justice, we see His Chessed in His Deeds (not just His Ways).   So we see here that the second half of the verse comes as a Chiddush on the first half of the verse.  There are no wasted words, and the second half of the verse is not a redundant expression of the first half.   This type of parallelism with a Chiddush in the second half is a regular feature in Sefer Tehillim.  The words were given to the Psalmist (for the most part King David) through Ruach HaQodesh (Holy Spirit) channeling sanctity into the words and guaranteeing that none of the words would be either redundant or flippant.  So that leaves us with the APPARENT exception to this rule, Psalm 115:17.  Now I write apparent exception because deep down we know that none of David's words were redundant or flippant.  There has to be a different understanding of this verse than the oft-noted explanation which solves the problem of redundancy and flippancy,  G-d forbid.

The second point about Psalm 115 is something I noticed several years later after I learned of the deep structure of Redemption expressed through the Order of Service in the Pesach Seder.  We notice right away that the the 4 cups of wine are divided neatly two before the Main Meal and two after the main meal (Shulchan Orekh) because the first Redemption was done with the Yud and the first Hey in HaShem's Name while the Final Redemption will be done with the attaching of the Vav and the Final Hey in HaShem's Name to the Yud and the First Hey once Amaleq can be destroyed in the world.  This explains why ALL of the Maggid (Telling) of the Redemption from Mitzraim, followed by the 2nd cup of wine, must be completed BEFORE the HaMotzi and the Torah Mitzvah of Eating Matzah which begins the Meal.  Maggid must come after the Middle Matzah has been split during Yachatz with the Smaller piece of Matzah being the one over which we tell the story of the Exodus while the larger piece of Matzah is the piece of Matzah that symbolizes the Greater and Grander Final Redemption After the Meal.  The meal itself is reminiscent of eating the Qorban Pesach with Maror and Matzah and the Qorban Chagigah for Pesach when there was a Temple and of all of  of Jewish history since the Temple was destroyed when we had neither Qorban  Surviving this larger segment of Jewish history when there was no Temple required this annual spectacle called the Pesach Seder to ensure that we and our descendants would still be around almost 2000 years later.  So the Meal somehow represents the entire span of Jewish History from the Exodus from Egypt until the Simanim of the Arrival of the Era of Mashiach ben Yosef.  We have discussed on this blog how the simanim of Mashiach ben Yosef was the greening of the hills of Eretz Yisrael from the First Agricultural Aliyah of 1882 when 4 agricultural settlements were founded in the same year 1882 (Rosh HaPinah, Petach Tikvah, Rishon LeTzion, and Zikhron Ya'akov).  Two of these settlings were actually repeats.  Rosh HaPinah and Petach Tikvah had previously been established but had been wiped out either by Arab terrorists in Rosh HaPinah and a Malaria epidemic in Petach Tikvah.  Both Rosh HaPinah and Petach Tikvah had been unsuccessfully established in 1878.  Somehow the hidden Matzah is reminiscent of the world falling to the 50th level of Tumah before Mashiach ben Yosef, something that has recently occurred about 6 1/2 years ago.  The Run up from the founding of Zikhron Yaakov (when G-d remembers Ya'akov) until today is just over 140 years.  Alas after the ingathering of exiles and the 6th election of Bibi Netanyahu (the 5th Mashiach ben Yosef) and the Aliyah to Israel of Yehonatan Pollard (the 6th Mashiach ben Yosef), we arrive at the moment of the 3rd cup of wine (The Vav in HaShem's Name).  At this stage because Eliyahu HaNavi lost the mantle to herald the Coming of Mashiach ben Yosef, we arrive at the event of the coming of Eliyahu HaNavi to herald Mashiach ben David (the 4th cup of wine and the Final Hey in HaShem's Name).  So after drinking the 3rd cup of wine, we pour the cup of Eliyahu HaNavi and open the front door and proclaim with a loud voice for HaShem to pour out His Wrath on the Gentiles that do not know Him, specifically against those who have massacred the seed of Ya'akov with bloody pogroms throughout the Ages.  One of the ways that we will know that we have reached that moment in history is if the nation that spilled the most Jewish blood for the last 2000 years is itself having its blood spilled almost indiscriminately.  For that nation will be completely wiped out from being a nation under the Heavens!

If one does a quick study of the various nations of the world where Jews have lived in significant numbers and which nation has shed the most Jewish blood at least in the last thousand years (including the last 3 generations) invariably we will arrive at the Ukraine or Ukraine.  For hundreds of years The Ukraine was The Borderland for at least three empires (Russian, Lithuanian, and Polish and sometimes Polish-Lithuanian).  Until 1648 The Ukraine (The Borderland) was not Ukraine, an independent country.  The year 1648, that very year, that Ukraine finally became an independent country under its leader Bogdan Chielminitzky (whose statue is all over Kiev), Ukraine proceeded to slaughter anywhere between 200,000 and 700,000 Jews!  They did horrible tortures reminiscent of the future Shoah slightly less than 300 years later.  Sadly there was no census that had been done of the Jews that were murdered in the areas that the Ukrainian Cossacks conquered including large parts of Poland, BelaRus, and Galitcia.  So all we have are estimates of the numbers who were murdered.  In most of the estimates up to 1/3 of all Eastern European Jews may have been murdered between 1648 and 1649 on the very birthday of the founding of a the nation that slaughtered them, the Ukrainians.  If there be any place in Europe that might be called the Graveyard for World Jewry, that place would be the blood soaked land of Ukraine.  And it really did not stop.  From Tach veTat to willing accomplices with the Nazis to murder European Jewry almost 300 years later, the Ukraine topped the list in most categories of Blood and Gore.  Is it a wonder that when we say and pray to G-d:  

Pour out Your wrath upon the nations that do not acknowledge You, and upon the kingdoms that do not call upon Your Name. For they have devoured Jacob and laid waste his habitation. Pour out Your indignation upon them, and let the wrath of Your anger overtake them. Pursue them with anger, and destroy them from beneath the heavens of the L‑rd.  

Is there any question that the number one nation that we should have in mind that has done these things in a consistent manner for the last 375 years since its inception as a nation to the descendants of Ya'akov is Ukraine?  Without even one Jew pushing any button, is it a wonder that the G-d's Revenge against the nations of the world that have tortured Jews throughout the centuries begins right there?   And have the Ukrainians EVER apologized for Tach veTat (1648 and 49) or all the massacres of Jews since?  Have they ever taken down their statues of Bogdan in the Kiev public square in shame for what he and their ancestors did?  Have they taught their kids in schools "Tach veTat studies", the same way that all German children today must know about the Holocaust?  No reflection on their wicked past, just crickets and the proclamation that their President is a Jewish comedian who renounced his Judaism by raising his children in the Ukrainian Church years ago cutting his descendants off from any Jewish destiny.  I have no personal animus against Volodymyr Zelenskyy, but if he is the monument to the new Ukrainian Jewry, then Bogdan Chielminitzky succeeded in his mission without slaying any more Jewish babies with his sword.  The point for this essay is we have arrived at this stirring statement in the Haggadah for the End of Days after pouring Eliyahu's cup, and we prepare ourselves for what comes immediately next:  Psalm 115, yes the above Psalm 115, one and the same.  

Let us take a step back.  First notice that in the Pesach Seder, we also say Hallel, albeit without a Brakhah specifically no Brakhah for Hallel.  But the first two psalms in Hallel are said with the Maggid step in the Hagaddah, at the end of Maggid, before the Meal!  This tells us immediately, that the first two prakim of Hallel are for the Redemption from Egypt and not for the Final Redemption!  So we arrive at the inevitable conclusion that since the first two chapters of Hallel are specifically for the Redemption from Egypt, then the last four Prakim (Psalms) of Hallel are for the Final Redemption specifically starting with Psalm 115.  It is why we start with Psalm 115 after praying for revenge against the nations that have murdered us and conclude with Psalm 118 before Hodu LaShem ki Tov and Nishmat Kal Chai followed by the 4th cup of wine.  So in this way, Psalm 115, not Psalm 113, is emblematic of the beginning of the Final Redemption (after the Revenge against those who have murdered us has already begun).  

So now I must return to the Winter and Spring of 2016.  Several young adult "Hilltop youth" had been implicated in an arson case in the Arab town of Duma where an entire Arab family may have been murdered in the Summer of 2015.  The question that has never been answered was Who Dunit?  Was it done by a group of Jewish arsonist extremists or another Arab family in the same village looking for revenge?  Apparently, only G-d knows because to be honest, the Jewish Division of the Shin Bet never proved a d-mn thing.  The leader of the youth who were implicated wrongfully without a body of evidence was the grandson of Rav Meir Kahane zt"l, Meir Ettinger.  That would be Meir Ettinger was the son of Rav Kahane's daughter, Tova Kahane- Ettinger.  Almost a dozen of these youths were put wrongfully in prison for months on end often tortured to extract a confession.  Shaba"k was able to extract one conviction from all this without any evidence to support this conviction.  Amiram ben Ulliel is still in prison for this conviction.  What was fascinating from the conviction from the beginning is that for months on end, these youths did not have regular discussions with a lawyer.  They could be held and potentially tortured inside a Shaba'k dungeon without Habeas Corpus or of what should be required, a Writ of Habeas Corpus.   No regular meeting with a lawyer.  Techniques to extract confessions that may be the equivalent of torture.  I always imagined that Shaba"k had a 500 year old Torqemada torture rack in a dungeon somewhere, and they were using it to extract confessions.  Since there was 0 oversight over what they were doing with these youths for months on end, it could be easily imagined that they tried almost everything.  And since their techniques for extracting confessions were done in complete secrecy, imagining what they were potentially doing is 100% justified.  Down in the dungeon of the Jewish Division of Shaba"k where no one can hear you scream where no one could praise HaShem.  Sometime near the end of Adar 5776 there was a Brit Milah for a boy, the son of Meir Ettinger, who by this time had been held for 7 months?  8 months?  But the Shaba"k authorities would not let Meir out of the dungeon to attend his own son's brit milah!  So thousands of us went.  I even saw Betzalel Smotrich at the event at the Breslov Shul in the Shaarei Chessed neighborhood.  Betzalel was in street clothes.  He was not there in any official capacity for Bayit Yehudi.  Yes, it was a fascinating and moving affair, a brit milah for a boy whose father was being tortured by Shaba'k to extract a confession that he never gave.  Eventually after 10 months in this dungeon he was let free.  What I remember most of all is that there was an organization for the Yordei Duma (those who had gone down into the Shaba"k dungeon to be questioned about the Duma arson case.)  The name of that organization was Choneinu.  And there was a young lawyer who took on the entire case of clients that he could not even talk to pro bono.  He did not expect a shekel for his services.  Perhaps he was paid a measly stipend by Choneinu.  It mattered not.  The Tzaddiq who took this case on was Itamar Ben Gvir, and I knew right then and there that somehow, someway this tzaddiq would be the lightning rod to introduce Mashiach ben David to the entire world, a man that 2/3rds of Mankind (the world's reprobate majority) would learn to hate for being that very tzaddiq!  Almost 7 years have passed since that fateful Brit Milah of Meir Ettinger's son, and Ben Gvir has burst on the scene almost precisely as I expected him to.  The Yordei Duma (those who went down because of Duma), well, they are the parallel construct, the Chiddush on the second half of that second to last verse in Psalm 115 that only makes sense after the fact with 20/20 hindsight  What happens, next, we shall see.

For anyone thinking of censoring, in no way do I approve of Rav Kahane's call to exile all Arabs from this Holy Land.  Every gentile who has the privilege to live here must keep 7 Laws of human decency.  Amongst the 7 are laws against Murder and laws to passionately be revolted of those who do murder to be a witness against murderers in Courts of Law.  A gentile does not have to put his life on the line to uphold the Courts of Justice clause, but if he celebrates in any way the murder of Jews, he has lost his right to be here, for he celebrates murder and would not be a witness against a murder suspect.  Those who take candy in public in the squares of Ramallah to celebrate the success of murder or who attend parties for a shahid suicide bomber, they have forfeited their residency in Eretz Yisrael because of a lack of human decency.  Sadly approximately 70 to 75% of Israel's Arabs with or without citizenship support the murderers who blow up pizza parlors or civilian busses.  So 70 to 75% of Israel's Arabs have forfeited their residency through their lack of human decency according to Noachide Law.  So as we hone in on the final exact figure, Meir Kahane was 70 to 75% correct..

Outstanding post, as usual. I do not weep for Ukraine, but it appears that my husband and I are among the few who feel this way. Memories are short, sadly.

Let's not ever forget that Shaked approved the torture sessions, even after one child attempted to take his life. And it was not "like torture" it was torture. There was a video of one of the lawyers explaining the tactics. It was a horror. Before that incident and subsequent to it, there were several fire bombings of houses belonging to that family. There was and is a long history of crime. Even the arabs in Duma were unhappy with the so-called verdict because they claim that several cars arrived carrying dozens of people.

Yes, I took the vaccine and one booster. I refused the second booster even at risk of losing my job taking care of an elderly man. My myofasciitis preceded Covid by 33 years. It is not the cause of my health problems.

I am trying to keep the Covid vax in perspective with End of Days discussions by not making it the major feature of the blog even though I am well aware that the longterm side-effects of these vaccines were never tested in a lab. Operation Warpspeed intended that we would all be the guinea pigs on that aspect of the vaccines.

Wishing you DOV a FULL Refuah Shlaymah. So Ukraine has spilt Yehudi blood of up to 1 million souls over the last 1000 years or so. Russia too a lot I would think- and they are losing many young men in the Ukraine invasion now. Germany- what is their punishment- of 6 million Yehudi souls murdered, how many are attributed to the Aryans: maybe Ukraine 1M and Russia 1/2M and Poland 1/2M etc that leaves 4M attributed to the Aryans and what is their punishment-- After WWII the Allies helped to build the German economy and Nazis were employed by NASA and the CIA in America etc so how/when is Germany punished if ever?

First and foremost I wish you a Refua Chelema dear Reb Dov,

And many thanks for your latest post, very interesting as always, so we are at that moment of Seder Pessah when we ask God's avenging the blood of so many Jews murdered in Ukraine...
Seems very relevant (I heard from a Talmid HaKham that Ukraine was a global center of Touma/impurity in the world, and I believe he was quoting the Zohar HaKadosh)

But I wonder where is Elyahou HaNavi (as we open the door BEFORE the curse against the evil nations) ?

I thought this : maybe we should consider the incredible censorship in all western countries - which I believe has never been worse except during Stalin or Hitler's years, like we experienced during the Covid crisis, the Trump's empeachment, the Hunter Biend's laptop, the Mueller story and so on...

In that case, maybe the job Elon Musk has been doing with him releasing the Twitter Files can fulfill part of the coming of Elyahou (since the Navi had basically 2 tasks : 1 receive the prophecy, and 2 spreading the word of God to the world; the second task is being fulfilled by the medias in our days) ?

I believe it would fit pretty well in the global picture of your post

Before the questions come in about Aryeh Deri being potentially fired as Minister under orders from our Evil Supreme Court, I frankly do not know what to expect of this latest impasse. Unlike the fake crimes Netanyahu has been charged with, trying to hide ₪530,000 in income from a Real Estate sale to avoid paying income tax is a real crime (if it actually happened). I will refrain from discussing in detail the "gangster" tactics in 2015 which prevented Yachad and Eli Yishai from passing the 3.25% threshold. It serves no purpose to dredge up previous bad behavior. Plus it is almost impossible to prove that the order to replace real ballots (Nesiyut Eli Yishai) in kalpis with fraudulent pieces of paper ballots (Nesiyut Eliyahu Yishai) came from the very top of Shas. I found a large box of real ballots on the side street next to my home, buttressed against the low wall of my property and handed the evidence over to the Police. Nothing came of it, but the evidence of criminal behavior in 2015 was staring me in the face. But I knew in the back of my head that Aryeh Deri's crimes real or imagined were a major weak link in this Coalition.

The other spiritual matter of having an openly gay Speaker who waves hello to his husband at the his induction Ceremony is a huge black cloud on this Govt. It poured rain here immediately after Netanyahu announced his Govt. It has barely rained here since Amir Ohana introduced us all to his husband. We are now partners in his To'evah whether we wanted to be or not.

Bringing Mashiach out of all this Criminality and Tumah is what we are asking HaShem to do. G-d rescue us!

I think I need to state the obvious. If Eli Yishai was still the Chairman of the Shas Party, none of this would be happening right now. I never met a straighter human being than Eli Yishai, whom I personally did meet on two occasions at the Ramada Jerusalem Hotel while taking care of an elderly client at the Health Club in the basement. Yishai and other politicians often had meetings at the Ramada, perhaps because of its proximity to the Knesset. When it came down to knowing precisely what someone stood for as a reflection of who they were when you personally met them, Eli Yishai leads the pack. I never understood how Deri replaced him. Perhaps people as straight as Yishai can't put on facades, and have difficulty in politics where Message is often outpaced by pizazz and polish.

Well it is not how things evolved. So Walla, another criminal conviction for Deri could potentially crash Bibi's last govt before it gets started.

If Yishai is as straight as you say, politics is no place for him. That being said, even if he was wronged, his choice to run in 2015 was still a mistake where his ego got ahead of his seichel.

Also, look how Moshe Feiglin, who I met on several occasions, and is also straight, was betrayed by people his party gave a platform to. They came to think they were Zehut, and in short order stabbed him in the back. Then there are the political machinations Netanyahu engaged in repeatedly to thwart his attempts to make the Likud live up to its own platform.

Politics is no place for the upright. Netanyahu is an untrustworthy snake, but in the end, he is our untrustworthy snake. The same cannot be said about Bennett or Lapid.

something to ponder. in the seventeenth century polish nobles used jewish middelmen to collect taxes frow ukrainians,in the 1930s stalin employed commisars among them many jews to starve ukrainian peasants and in our day the us deep state among them many jews such as nuland and blinken to effect regime change and try to unseat putin(who seemes to like jews who dont oppose him}and use a jewish comic as a patsy to get ukraine on the us side (as a thorn to russia at least) not sure where this takes us and ukrainians are definately guilty of crimes against us but suffice to say that jews are not entirely innocent in this ukraine business

Doo Wop Rebbe: In the 1640s less than 1% of all Jewish men in the Polish/ Lithuanian Empire were employed in the collection of taxes from the Ukrainian peasants. The overwhelming 99% of Jews were not involved in this vile activity. Yet Bogdan and his hordes made no such distinctions.

The Emes of what you wrote though is, today in America 75% of American Jews DO support the cultural and political destruction of the US from Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elana Kagan's activities legalizing homosexual marriage to the destroying Donald Trump activities of Merrick Garland and Bruce Reinhart. In the case of America's internal destruction, up to 75% of American Jews are partners with a significant amount of guilt in that internal destruction. Where in the 1640s less than 1 in 100 Jewish men were actively involved with taxing Ukrainian peasants, in the last 60 years Jews way out of proportion to their numbers have been involved in the Cultural destruction of the United States. One point made before on thus blog: In 1967 Jews composed only 3% of the population of the US while 30% of the hippies in Haight Ashbury (San Francisco) who wanted to remove all of America's barriers to rampant sexual immorality in the US were Jews. Sadly in America, secularized Ashkenazi Jews who grew up secular have to be held accountable for America's internal cultural destruction far out of proportion to our 1 to 3% numbers. There will be a reckoning for this.

I propose a trade. We take the approx 1 million American Orthodox Jews living in America in exchange for the 840,000 brain numbed fools who voted for Yair Lapid. A 1 for 1 trade. The 840,000 Lapid voters can therefore take hold of the responsibility of culturally destroying the West, and we can rescue the 1 million American Jews who did not play that role!

As explained in previous posts, the b'itah orientation of Mankind has to be that 2/3rds of the Human race has to have an intense desire to divide Yerushalayim (Zekharia 13-14) specifically and all of Eretz Yisrael (Yoel 4) in its totality. It has to be an intense חוש of the world's 2/3rds reprobate majority . HaShem through His Hashgachah has made that one issue the coalescing factor of the world's 5 billion strong Reprobate majority an issue over which there is a final birur. Only on that one issue can they, both Jew and gentile, agree! And if you are not a Reprobate, you likely will not agree with those 5 billion people on that issue! At least you will not want to shed blood in order to divide Eretz Yisrael between the ingathered Jews and the Palestinians (Moabite and Ammonite migrants from Ever HaYarden and Egyptian migrants specifically in Gaza). Believing the Invented people lie that there really is such an ancient or Medievel Arab and/or Muslim Palestinian peoplehood seems to be the driving force behind the world's last attempt to forcibly carry out their collective will. Sending troops to accomplish this will go part and parcel with being part of the World's Reprobate super-majority. They will drop everything, all of their intra-necine squabbles (War in Ukraine, Conquest of Taiwan) to try to accomplish this goal. But something must happen where as an act of Righteousness by Ben Gvir or Smotrich will kindle their intense hate against us, something that gets past the censors Yoav Galant or Bibi himself who are trying to clamp down intensely on deeds which would trigger such an event "to gather all the nations of the World to the Valley of Yehoshafat for judgement". If that event occurs, the Nations will quickly come here to seal their fate. And the punishment for trying to divide the Land will far exceed a year long war in the Donbass in Ukraine. Iran going forth with Nukes is also integral to bringing Olam HaZeh to a close.

Some years ago I noticed the vast majority, in the US, who were in support of "the Jewish State" would use the phrase, "The only democratic country in the Middle East". It caused me to think, what happens when it is no longer considered "democratic". Apparently one of the 'new' "rules based international order" is toeivah, such as the flag at the Afghan embassy. Also, if Israel begins Torah based policies it could also change the game. Even the strongest supporters, evangelicals, could then consider the state "undemocratic". Something on this order could galvanize the right and left in their 'new' enemy.

Jew-hatred permeates the Christian culture. They hate Jews and then they find a reason to persecute Jews/Israel. Jews were banned from owning land and from many occupations, and were forced to work in unpopular professions, money-lending, tax collecting etc. It's the epitome of being caught between a rock and a hard place. And if they had just been manual labourers, would there have been a lovefest? They would have been accused of "taking our jobs". As for "Jews not being innocent etc", why does everyone else get to be an individual, but if a Jew is involved in something then all Jews are guilty, apparently forever more? Why do you want, chalila, to bring dinim on Am Yisrael? We are supposed to judge each other favorably.

Same too for the comments about the US. They are individuals responsible for their individual actions and American social trends will continue with or without Jews. I propose that we try to judge our fellow Jews favorably, and not be the kategoria for Esav, daven for all Jews to make tshuva and to make aliya. Whatever one's opinion, Lapid's voters have the huge zchut of living in Israel, whilst for over seventy years frum American Jews have for the most part refused to make aliya. Much more so than the value of their money, they themselves could have changed the whole spiritual and political landscape in Israel. They need rescuing from the iron curtain in their minds.

Scubes, In context to your concerns about that specific countries din; There is such a concept as ' bribing the you know who.' There is also a thing called ' hugging to death'.' As such what the medinat is doing in it's diplomatic contacts could make sense. What goes on behind the scenes we don't know, either way the 'writing is on the wall.' Both countries do an awful lot of business in China, an autocratic police state with dubious practices such as reeducation camps that might come with organ harvesting and so on.
I have this plan to swap the American soldiers on Korean peninsula for German peacekeepers. They have plenty of experience with cleaning up after this kind of regime and in addition with reunificating a country, and deprogramming a brainwashed people. That would be great but not so easy for Germany itself. So a trade off to break the deadlock. No more nukes and soldiers on edge needed on peninsula, and China likes and trusts Germany more. Is sending missiles via tunnel underneath the border river to it's proxy DPRK really worth getting involved in WW3 for China ? Or is a smart exchange a better way forward ?
But the truth is the elites that run this world they don't care about about poor human conditions at all ! Magots crawling out of deceased North Korean detainees, are eaten by starving others. I call that a holocaust also. Why is nothing been done about it? How come Iran can run such a cruel terror state, and EU diplomats are laughing and shining as if they just won the lottery in photo opportunities with Iranian ministers after the notorious nuclear talks?
The answer is as Dov says; it is all a show, a lie. They just care about spilling as much Jewish blood as they can. Also because they hate the yoke of Torah. They hate HaShem. They want their this and that, and rock and roll. And if the ' Queen of the Night' in her prime, of her time, needs an abortion after things went a bit too far in the disco that other night, so it will be at taxpayers expense. And feminists were singing their songs of praise outside the clinics. Same kind of women that went to Iran in show of support, believe it or not. That is how crazy the world has become.
Of course we know who the real queen of the night is. Didn't Mozart know when he wrote his famous Zauberflöte opera? Mason that he was? I want them to know that we know what they know. But they don't know and understand what we know. Since they don't want to know.
But wisdom can mean to remain silent also.
Shalom, we shall overcome, b'nai Jacob and b'nai Noach alike.

The World has no conception or comprehension of people who live their lives as Righteous altruists.. They cannot comprehend the idea of Eternal reward for such behavior that anyone who chooses to behave in such a way can achieve it. Such behavior and the idea of such reward angers them to no end because it makes every human being so obligated to behave thusly in spite of the lack of such reward in Olam HaZeh. A lowly person who does not see the consummate reward in Olam HaBa mocks those who behave with righteous altruism.

I am in a significant amount of physical pain from Myofasciitis. It takes up a significant amount of my time and energy. I have dealt with this on and off for 35 years. I pray that G-d heals me, freeing up more of my time.

But, yes, I am disappointed by the slow pace of Geulah progress. Case in point: It has taken 7 years from when I composed this post in my mind for Itamar Ben Gvir to BEGIN to have his predicted effect on the Geulah process. It is like pouring water on a stone surface for 7 years and watching the indentation on the stone form 7 years later. I pray that things speed up.

Our best hope that the horrendous events over Shabbat force Ben Gvir to take radical actions which instantaneously put fear in the hearts of the Arabs but peeve off the disgusting Leftist Kapo Jews' representative in the US State Dept Antony Blinken as he touches down tomorrow night as a heap of horse manure on holy soil. I have believed for over 40 years that the driving force to place international troops in the "Valley of Yehoshafat" to divide Israel while the rest of the world is already at war with each other will be the Dump pile of 75% of American Jewry wanting to prove their undying love to being Popular amongst Mankind's Reprobate Majority. Those vile Leftist Erev Rav mostly American Jews will be the driving force to bring 5 billion people under almost immediate judgement.

We have seen this Maaleh min haTeva status in year 8 before except in Egypt, it was before we even had Shmittah cycles. So the only 7th and 8th years were the years of their respective decades. So the plagues in Egypt began in a 7th year (2447) and ended in an 8th year (2448). One might make the argument that all the plagues were Maaleh min HaTeva. Even with the first plague, the Ye'or (The Nile Delta) did turn into real blood not fake red food coloring. The proof was that all the aquatic creatures died almost instantly. But the Necromancers were able to replicate the first two plagues, albeit not on such an epic scale as to encompass the entire Lower Nile. Yet all the plagues in the 8th year 2448 were 100% Divine.

One should recite Parshat HaMon today, Yom Shlishi, for Parnassah. There is a special segulah to do so on the Tuesday before Parshat BeShalach.


We have spoken about how the dividing point between receiving one's Qeren Qayemet and the Peirot from one's good deeds takes place either on Rosh Chodesh Shevat or Tu B'Shevat. Since a Tzaddiq or a Beinoni gets the largest portion of his/her Qeren Qayemet in Olam HaBa, the bulk of one's parnassah as a Tzaddiq or Beinoni in Olam HaZeh, is decided right now and not in Tishrei. As those who strive to come close to and walk with G-d, we or you are dependent on the reward for the fruit of our deeds since the reward for our deeds themselves is in the World to Come.

You must have forgotten or be unaware of the very clear Zohar that says techiyas hameisim must start at least 210 years before the year 6000 (the end of yemos hamoshiach and start of Olam Habah!). Rabbi Weinberg may have gotten it wrong in 5755, but here we are at the final motzei shemittah, 5783, before the deadline for techiyas hameisim. Was too distant in 5755 to get others excited about the 5790 deadline for Techiyas Hameisim. Here we are…. The Complete Geulah, Moshiach Ben Dovid, and the Bais Hamikdash will be here well before 5790, as it precedes the techiyas hameisim. And to make it even better, the Leshem (major Kabbalist) says techiyas hameisim will start by 5786. So here we are-without even comprehending how close we are and excited and ready we really should be- the Geulah can very likely come THIS YEAR! All the signs are here (unlike 5755)!!!

Rabbi Kessin still believes that DJT will be back in official office soon, is because JB is not officially the Prez. DJT is (still) the official president of the Republic of America, and indicates that there will be major changes this March and April. DJT is the forerunner and reflection of what will transpire for us in our and the world’s Geulah.

The insanity that taken hold of much of the world, as Rabbi Kessin has said, is a precursor to the Geulah, as he describes relating to the Akeida. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense and clears away any confusion.

Those who are loyal to HaShem will witness our spectacular Geulah.

I enjoy Rabbi Kessin's shiurim, but this scenario sounds like psychops. DJT is not the official president; Biden is, like him or not (and I do not). People need to move on from Trump. He is not our salvation. This continuing to cling to a false narrative is not healthy.

To Lisa : as far as I know, Rabbi Mendel Kessin did not say DJT is still the POTUS, but he clearly stated that Joe Biden is illegitimate, it's an importrant nuance(especially for people who are not used to Rabbi Kessin's hashkafa)

And, by the way, last year 41% of the american people also believed the 2020 presidential election was rigged and that was BEFORE the Hunter's laptop was confirmed to be real and the Twitter files.. so maybe today it would be 45% or 55% or more americans who would agree JB is an illegitimate president...

And yes Rabbi Kessin believes Trump will be back soon (in 2024 or before) as the POTUS, in order to finish the teshouva of the Good Part of Essav and he will help Israel to finish the Tikkun Olam

Important point : he also stated that for 2000 years Essav was up and Israel down, and now with the Israeli elections and new good Gvt, this has flipped and now Israel is becoming the leader (related to the prophecy from the Sages from Shem and Ever to Rivka when she was pregnant of Essav and Yaakov)

So the Rabbi's timeline is as follows, from now up to 2030 / 5790 (as far as I have understood, please correct me if I'm wrong) :

* Israel becomes the leader before Essav and recovers Tiferet and Oz (beauty and might),
* Trump comes back, he finishes Essav's teshouva as the next POTUS and helps Israel,
* Moshiah ben Yossef will appear in between and builds or makes appear from above the 3rd Beith Hamikdash, completes kibboutz galouyot and submits the Satan (not necessarily in that order but MBY will complete those 3 missions),
* then Moshiah Ben David will come and join him MBY in order to bring down the sparks of keddousha and really enters the Era of Olam Habaa before or in 2030/5790,
* in 2030/5790 tehyat hametim will start like the Zohar quotes (or even before since the Zohar also says tehyat hametim could occur 4 years before, in 2026/5786)

Wish you all a Good Tou BiSHvat !

The Rav Nachman Kahana essay is correct. Since and if it is Mashiach ben Yoseph's job to ingather exiles, his job is basically or almost complete because 95% of those who want to be ingathered in the framework of Olam HaZeh have already been ingathered. Only people with unique extenuating circumstances remain trapped in the Galut outside the Land. Yes they may number about 100,000 Jews trapped for whatever reasons in the dispersion. But Rav Kahana's admitted failure is the hundreds of thousands more who remain in Galut because the size of basement storage to sock away Gashmiyut is puny in Israel compared to what one can sock away in most places in America or France, etc. Or they are afraid of the genuine security situation. Or they are afraid of the large Minority here that compose the Erev Rav.
They would rather stay in comfort than go to war against Yair Lapid or Benny Gantz, something that is a mitzvah to do. They are willing to accept the 75% of Jews in Galut who also are from the Erev Rav who have mightily participated in Western Civilization's internal destruction while not fighting the 35% of Jews here who want to do the same here in Israel! This is the gist of Rav Kahana's article explaining his "failure".

I hesitate to be brutally honest about why I believe "many Jews" need to hear that DJT will somehow return to the American Presidency, but here it goes. And I write this while believing how much profoundly better it would be for Orthodox Jews and Israel if Ron DeSantis were to somehow become President and not DJT, but here it goes.

I think a lot of Torah scholars who attend Rav Kessin's lectures in Lakewood, Borough Park, or Flatbush are internally looking for a justification for "waiting things out" in New York and New Jersey as those respective bluestates fall apart and disintegrate into the spiritual black hole of the Northeastern Seaboard. They will neither take on the stress of Aliyah nor move to a solid Redstate like Texas. So they are relying on Trump's triumphal return to make transitioning to the Messianic Era less frightening, even though they personally live in states that despise Trump which makes their lack of initiative on this matter frightening. (Again I would agree that many Jews want to come but cannot.) If you want Trump so badly, why do they live in states that would secede if Trump were elected again? Why live in states and communities where their immediate neighbors in all directions despise them because the evil people that those neighbors elect reflect the electorate in those blue states? So if you live in the powderkegs in Brooklyn, Monsey, Chicago, Baltimore, and Lakewood, make every effort to at the bare minimum make "Aliyah" to Texas or Florida, just for your obvious personal safety. This is obvious if you can. Dreaming of Trump's return to power is likely pipe dream. He will not save. Nor will he ease the transition. After 2 yrs of Biden, the Repubs should be up by at least 60 seats in the House of Reps. A 9 seat majority after the last 2 yrs should scare the bejeebers out of you into running away from the NE Abyss.

I happen to believe that with the Gen X, Y and Z spiritual demographics (55 to 60% Reprobates), the unparalleled Corruption in so many states, and the multiple millions of illegals that have entered thru the Southern border in the last 2 years and beyond, a Republican non-Reprobate will never win a National Federal election again. But if you want a Republican primary favorite, Ron DeSantis, Mike Pompeo, and Nikki Halley are all superior choices to DJT at this time. Plus a 78 year old running for POTUS is a huge problem when dealing with potential serious unplanned for health and Dementia issues. Anyone who will be President into their 80s is a serious national security issue. He might come to think that a Chinese Spy Balloon pausing to take pictures of military bases in Montana is a big inflated lollipop.

All of this is under the assumption that Mashiach is delayed.

Again, I agree with Neshama. DJT stands strong against evil and doesn't sway to the corrupt dems and republicans. We have never seen this before and it is incredible to watch. The way the 'bad' politicians, FBI, etc. went and are going after him, is showing how corrupt everything really is. DJT was brave enough to mov the embassy to Jerusalem, finalize the Abraham Accords, and publicly state "death penalty for drug dealers," etc. I wouldn't trust the others (DeSantis, Pompeo, Halley) to stand as strong as DJT. On another note, I thank God everyday I live in Israel. Though, I can't help feeling furious at the news... not building up Israel, giving into Arab violence , etc.

Rav Fish shlita:

Filling in the gaps not translated in the video, approximately:

עַל-כֵּן לֹא-נִירָא, בְּהָמִיר אָרֶץ; וּבְמוֹט הָרִים, בְּלֵב יַמִּים.

The Metzudat David says that when the earth passes from quiet to shaking and the mountains fall into the depths of the sea this is a sign of Gog and its downfall.

When will it occur?

The perek continues:

יִרְעֲשׁוּ הָרִים בְּגַאֲוָתוֹ סֶלָה.
ה נָהָר--פְּלָגָיו, יְשַׂמְּחוּ עִיר-אֱלֹהִים; קְדֹשׁ, מִשְׁכְּנֵי עֶלְיוֹן.
ו אֱלֹהִים בְּקִרְבָּהּ, בַּל-תִּמּוֹט; יַעְזְרֶהָ אֱלֹהִים, לִפְנוֹת בֹּקֶר.

[The Rav emphasises with his voice lifnot boker, in the early hours of the morning]. That's when it will start

On yud beShvat, he spoke at length about the comet that is approaching our planet.

The earthquake was 7.8 on the Richter scale, shows the connection of shvii and motzai shvii, Ben David Ba.

The gematria of reidat adama gedola, a big earthquake, is 5783 (with the colel)

Someone (didn't catch who) brought that before Bnot Lot gave birth to the root of Moshiach, Sdom was overturned, because before Moshiach comes the mountains will be torn asunder and fall in the water, as is said in Tehillim and that this is the beginning of the war of Gog and Magog.

Harokeach says in parshat vayera that that is the reason for Sdom being overturned, that is the order, first of all an earthquake, and then Moshiach was born.

The connection to TuBiShvat is that this is the time that Malchus matzmicha umorida, causes growth and brings down (bracha, rain), molida (?) begets, ... we see the birth of xxx, of malchus, of Moshiach, (a bit unclear, but that's the general idea).

The Zohar Hakadosh says that the root of all earthquakes in the world is in Tsion.

Earthquakes in the world are a sign that Malchus in the world is about to change.

Everything that is happening, the place, the time, the minute, explicit psukim that are happening before our very eyes, as too divrei chazal.


Be"D we really are in the geula now, so much more reason to focus on Moshiach coming this very minute, and not concerning ourselves with basar vedam and galuti politics. Tsion is the heart and soul of Am Yisrael.

I disagree, especially when it comes to Mike Pompeo. As Sec of State, he proved his loving friendship for Israel. He has of his own volition visited the Shaar Binyamin Industrial Zone and Yekev Psagot both as Sec of State and as a private citizen. And he is very outspoken about what he believes, is very charismatic, and lacks most of DJT's more negative personal traits.

I tremendously appreciate DJT's one term in Office, and would personally thank him if I ever had the opportunity to personally meet him. Yet, after the 2020 election likely stole 6 states from his electoral column and after Mike Pence failed to dispute this when he counted the electoral college votes, it was time for Trump to retire from public service.

The US Constitution allowed VP Pence to send the List of Electoral College delegates back for reconsideration by those states' legislatures by asking them if those delegates were chosen by those states' laws. Pence refused to implement that Constitutional power. Mah la'asot?

Pompeo is an evangelical missionary. He doesn't love Israel, he loves his missionary work.

He also strips the Holocaust of its unmistakable characteristic of entrenched, extensive and brutal Christian antisemitism. Gaslighting at its finest.

Shine your light = missionise
Excercise your right to religious freedom in the public square = overstep other people's boundaries.

"Connecting one's faith with America's foreign policy is essential."

He doesn't even call us the Jewish State but the Bible state (ie his bible)

Secretary Pompeo's remarks at the Prestonwood Baptist Church

Missionaries these days speak in code so that they always have plausible deniability. Shine your light, good news, the kingdom etc, etc, etc all code. He is using his position to further his evangelical goals.

The worst part is that Jews fall for it time and again.

But as the Doo Wop Rebbe said (whose comment I have not yet posted), Trump would not have even come close to winning in 2016 if not for the votes of "35 million" fundamentalist" Xtians, not even close. The approx half million to 1 million Orthodox Jews who voted for Trump live in states where their votes for Republican Presidents are wasted. NY, NJ, Mass, California, Illinois, and Maryland are so solidly blue states that the votes from Orthodox Jews go to waste. The only state with a sizable Orthodox population to make a difference for President is Florida. So only in Florida will Trump, DeSantis , Halley, or Pompeo court the Jewish vote.

I do not partner with evangelicals in talking about Mashiach, but I do recognize their support although I am very wary of any proselytizing that they may do here. Best to say thank you while keeping a wary eye on their proselytizing. We do share many common values, and their support for Israel is sometimes genuine but never to be taken lightly. But we definitely need to recognize that DJT moved the Embassy and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan because of the tens of millions of Xtian Fundamentalists who wanted him to do so. Would I prefer that Trump's support was lishma? Maybe it partially was. Maybe he despised the fact that PA textbooks teach that murdering Jews is a problem in Mathematics. But when push came to shove, moving the Embassy and Recognizing the Golan as being part of Israel was done for 35 to 40 million votes from Xtian fundamentalists, however we interpret those deeds hashkafically.

There is a tremendous battle going on now and if what is supposed to take place in March and April of 2023 really takes place, we should be able to greet Mashiach very soon.

Trump is not our savior. He is not returning to the presidency. He lost. End of story. Move on. Time to focus on preparing ourselves for the awesome light that will be revealed when Moshiach is revealed. Are you ready to stand in that light? What will you feel when you hear those words, "I am Moshiach"? I know wasting our thoughts and conversations with the political circus is much easier. But that's what it is--a circus. I don't know who will be the GOP nominee; it could be that Trump will take it. Not even his daughter and son-in-law stand by his side. His support among evangelicals has waned. And, as to the Avraham accords, it was primarily due to Jared Kushner (as far as vision and groundwork). This obsession with Trump is troubling.

"Minor earthquake reported in Jerusalem, West Bank after devastation in Turkey, Syria
Energy Ministry confirms 3.5-magnitude tremor; Home Front Command says no danger to area residents”

"The 3.5-magnitude tremor hit at 11:14 p.m. local time and was centered around 15 kilometers (9 miles) southeast of Ariel in the West Bank, the ministry says. It was felt in the Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh and Mevaseret Zion areas, among others. The IDF’s Home Front command says the earthquake warning system was not activated because the tremors did not pose a danger to residents."

The buildings most at risk are in the north...the forgotten zone. The center is in pretty good shape, not that I'm ignoring older buildings in Yerushalayim. But in Tveria, entire blocks will not stand up under an earthquake. A couple of years ago, we had a small 3.3 or 3.5 tremor, and the buildings started cracking. People ran outside in fear. These projects were built decades ago with little money and cheap materials. They don't have the nice Yerushalayim stone. They're just concrete. I'm speaking specifically about the blocks up the hill from the central bus station and near to the kanyan. Also, the area they call Club Hotel. But, Tzfat is also not prepared to withstand an earthquake. And we all know what happened there the last time there was one. I see how many Muslims are davening and how they hold strong to their faith in the one Allah. We can take a cue from this and focus our energy on davening for a soft landing--geula b'rachamim.

This is from Lisa. It was חריף. I toned it down.

Gavriela Dvorah,

Perhaps just sharing your opinion instead of 'lecturing' in such a harsh way would be more appropriate for there is always the chance that you are wrong. in my opinion, we are not 'wasting our thoughts and conversations ....is much easier," as you stated. Understanding the process of God managing the world through natural means - such as politics, etc. is very helpful to a lot of people.

Now this is Dov. I think we can express our opinion without attacking personally. I did not see Gavriela's comment as a personal attack, but I agree with Lisa that while we deeply want Mashiach to come this year, we have have to prepare Derekh HaTeva for a more ghastly world, if G-d decides if he should tarry. On that note, if he does tarry, AOC (Alexandria Cortez) would likely be elected Pres within the next 10 years (in 2028 or 2032) as Gens. X, Y, and Z grow older and completely take over. So we can only pray that HaShem thinks that His world smells bad enough.

I think that it is a matter of ikar vetafel. The ikar being emuna in Hashem, hakol yachol, ein od milvado, whatever the situation, whether personal or national, yeshuat Hashem k'cheref ayin and also strengthening ourselves in emuna to do ratzon Hashem, and the tefel, the predictions and calculations are interesting but seem to interfere in some people's emuna that Moshiach can come today (this is in the 13 Principles of Faith and no rav today is claiming to be bigger than the Rambam) and they seem to put it off in their hearts and minds. And more tefel, seemingly putting, maybe not entirely one's trust, but even one's hope in basar vedam of any kind, and we are absolutely not allowed to do this. Only in Hashem.

Hashem is going to bring His people home. Rav Mordecahi Eliyahu zatzal said that the Shechina was in exile with JPollard. When a tsadik leaves a place, the bracha leaves with him, and it would seem that the Shechina also came home to EY with JP. There is no more bracha in the galut. If an AOC type comes to power, it would be a result of that, not a cause of any further deterioration, but in any case it doesn't matter who is in charge. It could be Trump, and the way he's going he could turn on the Jews. It's all the same and would be the same result for the Jews. They are just Hashem's shlichim.

Rav Fish said that earthquakes are a sign the malchus in the world is about to change. The last vestiges of the glory and pageantry of royalty in the world are to be found in the British royal family. They are the global symbol of royalty, despite the sixty or so other royal families around the world. Rav Yaakov Maor gave a shiur about the spiritual significance of QEII's death. It was the death of the feminine aspect of the malchut of the klipa. The male aspect died about 200 years ago. The coronation of King Charles is set to take place on 6 May, 15 Iyar, on shabbat emor. The ceremony is very much based on the annointing of kings in Tanach, with annointment oil, and even a piece called Zadok the Priest was composed especially for the coronation of British monarchs. It is my fervent hope that the next coronation of a king that the world will witness will be that of Melech Moshiach Tsidkeinu, well before 15 Iyar this year. I found it interesting that King Charles III was the first monarch to appear on postage stamps without a crown. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I see it as him symbolically giving up his crown. Lev hamelech be'yad Hashem.

About earthquakes, spiritually, I heard from a Chabad rav, to affix a tsedaka box to a wall inside your home, and even better in every room, and obviously to use them as well.

I lived in Japan. On arrival, the first thing everyone tells you, in great detail, is how to prepare for an earthquake. which are frequent over there. A way of life even. The advice was to stay indoors and protect yourself under a table. It's probably best though to check local advice as it may depend on the type of building. Very important is to make sure any closets etc are affixed to the wall. You want to have as few things as possible that could be flying around.

I kept a hard helmet, water, food supplies, a torch, a packed bag, shoes, all under the table, to be ready to start walking out of the city in the aftermath.

Be"D none of this is going to relevant for us.

2 more minor quakes rattle Israel, bringing number of tremors felt in past day to 3
Earthquake detection system seen working on live TV as top scientist at Geological Survey gives interview on initial tremor
RECENT: Two minor temblors rattled Israel on Wednesday evening, amid fears the country could face a major earthquake like the deadly ones that have killed more than 11,000 people in nearby Turkey and Syria.

FEBRUARY 8: The tremors measured at 3.3 and 3.9 on the Richter scale, with the first centered around central Israel and the second in Lebanon but also felt across the border. They followed a 3.5-magnitude tremor on Tuesday night that was centered around 15 kilometers (9 miles) southeast of the settlement city of Ariel in the West Bank. MAP https://www.timesofisrael.com/second-minor-earthquake-in-less-than-a-day-rattles-israel-no-injuries-or-damage/
No injuries have been reported as a result of any of the three earthquakes.
The Home Front Command said that warning sirens were not sounded for any of the quakes because the tremors posed no danger to residents. The warning system put in place last year in cooperation with the Geological Survey of Israel can issue an alert to citizens with sirens, similar to those used in rocket attacks, within seven seconds of a quake that measures more than 4.5 on the Richter scale.

Amazing how almost no one is talking about Bennett's almost 5-hour podcast interview. During those 5 rambling hours, he said that in March, he brokered an agreement between Ukraine and Russia. They were ready to sign. But the US, Germany, and France blocked it. They demanded more time to hurt Putin, hoping that they could get rid of him, i.e., force a regime change. Especially since the previous US-forced regime changes worked out so well. (being sarcastic). If indeed a third war starts, it will be because of NATO, not Russia.

Love or hate him, but Trump will have a train station in Jerusalem named after him. There aren't too many non Jews who's name is associated in a positive way with the Holy City.for eternity. As such, if he really was that gilgul that nearly made his perfect tiikun or not, he is a legend. For all I understand it is not the Jewish way to make him into some sort of idol to depend upon. But the one that refused to play by the make believe rules of political window dressing. The one that broke out of the matrix, nearly broke the matrix all together. Whatever that is, and whoever put that in place. That one, despite his flaws, has my respect and gratitude. Lets say he stared one or more klipa's Dov also wrote about in the face. Amaleq rather destroyes the world then to let go of the klipa. The Donald is getting older, there is still time. Events can and will take place. He can play a different role in or afterwards those events. Inmagine a huge war, or the collapse of the dollar. The death of Biden, or indeed the building of the Temple. Wether or not he will win an election in the meantime or not, his legacy, call it Trumpism will still play a role. But maybe not as the President/Superhero who will finish the job, but in a different capacity. Wouldn't destroying somebody like Nikki Haley backfire? Wouldn't people still relate to Trump in such an event? Get energy and confidence from his example ? What Russian collision? What democracy ? 10 % for the big guy ! It is all on the Hunter laptop ! You know; one bird changing direction can change the whole flock of birds' course. Trump will still be that bird in many people's eyes, no matter what.
Imagine a bunch of huge sand-glasses in Syria and Iraq, and Lybia or Pakistan if you will. And Obama with his pro Muslim Brotherhood policies is running around like a mad man trying desperately to straighten them out.

But about Putin.... i have this thought for whatever that is worth, and i have no idea if it makes any sense, and beg you pardon in any case, on forehand. If he is Gog ? But it does say that HaShem is against Gog, but it doesn't really say that much about all the others mentioned. That is the Magog department, a different category all together, or not ? Just says specifically that He is against Gog. The others might think they are alright, but we know that in the end of the day G'd is for the Nation of Israel only. So the others are somewhere in between. But UN is starting now a procedure at the Court over here in The Haque against Jews in Judea Samaria. So most nations aren't that great either. And so a different (broken) hour-glass is running anyway. But G'd uses Gog now (?) to destroy Ukraine. So the good and bad got all mixed up, just as it was in the beginning. The curse or condition that the nachas caused now works in reverse direction. It is miraculous ! Better deplete Iranian stocks of missiles and drones in Ukraine than on Israel. Better distract the nations with this, make them feel good. No matter that European economies are being destroyed for good, due to inflation and low energy supplies and so on. Does make you wonder by the way why so many Jews were still living in that place called Ekron, if it was such a horrible place. Which it was, they even had orgies together with the notorious soldiers in black during that time, when they volunteered to participate in the Holocaust. I remember reading that in a historic picture book about WW2 as a kid. Why are they so eager to help this place? Do Deep States really have their dirty dealings there? Does Putin have a point in fighting this evil ? But he has North Korean allies fighting over there his war. So again: and i am no kabalist, but the good, the bad, and the ugly, all got mixed up after the eating of that attractive fruit.
Maybe the medinat is right to somewhat drop the neutrality in this war. If Putin is down and Russia is not a nice society, mind you. Then I would praise the day his forces are no longer at you northern border. But than again: who is to say ? Thanx for the opportunity to share rachniut together. Just some thoughts in order to possibly help.

I agree with you Vincent. Everything is all mixed up...true eruv. I always believed that the Russia-Ukraine war was bad fighting the more bad. Personally, I believe we (Israel) should sit on the side and watch HaShem settle accounts, as we did at Yam Suf. There are more accounts to settle, and HKBH will take care of them. For me, the leftist attempt to overturn our elections is much more troubling since it hits closer to home. For the first time in decades, the left is completely out of the ruling coalition. Voters chose a government in such convincing numbers that there was no need to wrestle and wrangle with parties from the left in order to form a coalition. They are out. And they can't stand it. And they are willing to destroy the country to protect their totalitarian rule over the majority. Lapid has stoked the first of opposition in countries around the world. Lapid, their darling puppet who would have delivered to them a fakestinian state. If you recall, at the very beginning, the US ambassador said that America has no interest or involvement in the internal matters of Israel, such as how it establishes or reforms its judicial system. How quickly that changed. Why, because of Lapid. But this is a test too. Let's see how it goes today.

One minor observation.
In the UK, there were visually prominent and vocally loud demonstrations against Brexit.
It is important to note that the vote for Brexit was extremely close, and the anti Brexit losers were only a minority by a small margin.
But I see a parallel with what happened today in Israel.
The losing side make a huge protest, but the regular people just carry on with their lives.
They have to put food on the table, so they go to work as usual.
They cannot afford to take a day off.
Their vacation allowance is used for religious holidays and a few days vacation somewhere in Israel or perhaps a short trip overseas.

It is in G-d's Hands to harden or weaken the hearts of our leaders, but I do have a real concern that either Bibi or Yariv Levin will cave in the face of monumental pressure. Bibi is just way too secular to have the intestinal fortitude to take on the entire Erev Rav. I have always liked Yariv Levin. For some reason based on his expressed views, I had thought that he was Shomer Shabbat. But he is not. My greatest concern about the firestorm for Truth that he is spearheading is can any strong willed secular person defeat the Erev Rav without buckling under the intense pressure? If you cannot lean on G-d, how can you stand upright in the face of these 100 kms per hour spiritual winds?

There are a # of comments that I thought that on a religious blog, you would not find.
Such as the bug eating diets promoted by the ptb's (reshaim).
They will not succeed at any of this, because by that time, Moshiach will be here. Another important point which our people should understand is that the whole globe is now under the control of a new version of the 4th reich, r'l. So, they conspire, but H' is in full Control and is taking nekama on those nations that 'know HIM not' who through the millenia and centuries shed oceans of Jewish blood and Europe is on top of that list. We should be silent and not interfere while H' is cleansing the earth. These are signs before the coming of Moshiach tzdkeinu and we pray it will be with great chesed and rachamin for every Yiddishe neshama, so every Yehudi needs to wake up and do as much teshuvah he is capable of. Every real Yehudi has a portion in Olam HaBah! The decent humanity who know there is G-D (Hashem) should do teshuva too so they can have a portion in Olam HaBah!
Evil is always temporary and always loses in the end, while good is eternal, and always wins
in the end - this time for eternity!

Dov: Actual Name: EAST PALESTINE, Ohio Train wrect and release of toxid chemicals. Vinyl chloride = hydrogen chloride bonds to water = HCO Toxicity. Ohio River runoff, flows into the Mississippi River which will poison thousands of farms (like a chemical weapon) and food basin of the south

Dead animals and reports of sickness as ecological disaster unfolds after Ohio toxic train derailment
Louise Boyle reports on the environmental impacts of a train derailment in Ohio which released toxic chemicals into the air, surface soils, and surface waters. https://www.independent.co.uk/climate-change/news/train-derailment-ohio-palestine-chemicals-b2281306.html

This reminds me of the National Security Minister and his pushing for Increased Security Measures (in E. Jerusalem) against the Terrorists. Everyone came against him, with all kinds of excuses, BUT in the end he got them moving:
"Following the recent wave of terrorist attacks in and around Jerusalem, the government has decided to call up three reserve platoons of Border Police in order to reinforce the city's defenses”
There was a big confrontation as Itamar ben Gvir yelled, “They killed our Children” and pushed for further action.

Terror attacks slaughtering Jews in Newe Yaakov at shul and in Ir David were on Friday 27th of January. Ben Gvir announces his reprisals to be implemented in "E. Jerusalem" by Motzei Shabbat. Sec of State Antony Blinken and a whole host of Erev Rav Demoncrats (Jackie Rosen and Adam Schiff) immediately condemned Ben Gvir's plans. Exactly one week later, an Ecological disaster hits the length and breadth of the Ohio River almost instantly killing all the fish in the River (right out of the Gemorrah in Sanhedrin) from a train disaster in E. Palestine, Ohio. What are the odds??

Dove Bear, did you see the article I posted about the earthquake and subsequent huge divide of the olive orchard? I thought it may be relevant to your last article, "The Three Necessary Ingredients of "In Its Time", where you said >

"If the Wars in year 7 were the essence of the Redemption, then the pregnancy would begin in "January" of year 6 while if the son of David coming was the essence of the Redemption, then the pregnancy would begin in "January" of year 7. And the hallmark of those nine months would be a concerted and intense effort by the Nations of the World and the Erev Rav to divide Israel (Yoel 3 and 4) and to divide Yerushalayim specifically (Zekharia 14) between Israel and the Roman (or Edomite) name of an invented Muslim people, Palestine."

Of course you later mentioned a "split in the Mt of Olives" (Zekharia), which is why I sent you the article. And now this train wreck in palestine is in the news. I see terminology from your LAST article in the news, and was hoping for commentary if it was worthy.

Not sure why Neshama's comment on Ohio is relevant and my comment on Turkey olive orchard was not. Neither place is in Israel. We both referenced words from your last article, imo. If you think it doesn't relate, please say.

And right now the hatred for Jews beyond the Green Line is coming from the United States and its Leftist kapo Jew Majority.

When I was 10 years old, I saw and experienced that the Leftist, popularity infatuated American secular Ashkenazi Jews were destroying my childhood. At least they were the major cause in this. But I knew within 50 years they would culturally and spiritually destroy America at least playing major roles in that destruction before I turned 60. Jews were 3% of the US population in 1967 but comprised 30% of the hippies in San Francisco in the Summer of 1967 that came to celebrate with rampant promiscuity that they were "grateful that Western Civilization was Dead or dying." That is 10 fold in excess to their numbers in the general American population. When 5 Supreme Court justices forced homosexual marriages on all 50 states in June of 2015, 3 of the 5 justices in the Majority to make a mockery of the sanctity of marriage were Leftist Jews (Ginsberg, Kagan, and Breyer) The proofs of the destructive capacity of Leftist Jews in America are endless. No need to beat a dead horse. This prediction of mine turned out to be 100% accurate.

What is more to point, is that I knew in my mid-20s that their next project would be to be the ones in the West taking leading roles dividing Eretz Yisrael and Yerushalayim by turning on their "fellow" Jews in Israel in order to embellish their popularity and adoration amongst their comrade Reprobates in the younger generations of Americans who by this time would be 60% reprobates. Since they still crave that Popularity god as they did in high school, this prediction has also come true. The main vicious thrust to divide Israel is coming from these so called American Jews. In order to end the carnage here in Israel, those Kapo Jews must be silenced apparently by the Hand of G-d. Compared to these Leftist kapo Jews in the US, Erdogan is a minor threat to our life and survival. He too must be dragged into the Heavenly Court, but to stop the bloodshed here, those Leftist American kapos must be silenced.

Look at it this way. Bibi unlike the Erev Rav Left is very CFR cold and calculating about his need to reach out diplomatically to have friends in the world that side with Israel. He is secular, but unlike Lapid and Gantz, he does not need to be adored by humanity to satisfy a deep emotional need. The Leftists Generals and Lapid do crave this popularity for themselves and their voters. Still being secular Bibi is apprehensive about being alone in the world. If the Turkish Tyrant were to come on a State visit to demand the division of Jerusalem, Bibi would cordially respond but would strongly refuse the request. Yet when Nides, Blinken, Jackie Rosen, and Adam Schiff come knocking making similar demands, Realpolitick Bibi begins to cave, buckle, and sweat a lot of bullets. These Leftist kapo American Jews are a far greater threat to our existential survival and our public safety than Erdogan is.... and I knew precisely how evil they were when I was 10 yrs old.

Take a look at the video of the atrocity that took place today in Shomron. Galant aka Gantz sent in the stormtroopers, one of whom was filmed kicking a Jew in the head as he was being held by other soldiers and police. They won't touch the leftist/secularist/anarchist/wokists/erev rav but a Jew, especially a religious Jew living in Shomron or Judea..they are happy to kill him if possible. Oh and Bibi, well, yes, he ordered a halt to the demolition of a decades-old vineyard on Jewish land AFTER the demolition was complete and the assaults had taken place. MKs were blocked and prevented from entering the area. So much for immunity. MKs like Smotrich and Ben Gvir (who I support) have no real power. It's on paper only. Galant overrules Smotrich on everything related to Judea and Shomron. And Bibi says nothing. He needs our votes and support to be PM and to help him get out from under these indictments. But I am calling for Gvir and Smotrich to walk. Let the whole place collapse into the abyss.

Gallant had a very friendly handover meeting with Gantz before taking office. Gantz told him to do what is right in his eyes, and to not be influenced by politics. It seems that Gallant took this to heart and has decided to open a 5th wing of medinat Israel, of which he is the head. He (so they say) not only overstepped the instructions of Smotrich but also of the rosh memshela! How can an appointed minister ignore the instructions of the PM? He should be fired. But he won't because in truth, we have no idea what is going on behind closed doors. I have said this before and I will say it again. Bibi had no choice but to form a coalition with Smotrich and Ben Gvir. But, he has no intention of following through on anything that is written. They may have approved housing, but I've been here 15 years and have gone through several housing approvals that have resulted in no new construction. However, their presence gives him cover from the US who is threatening to come in and create a fakestinian state. So, he needs them as back up, ie. "what can I do??? it's in the coalition agreements..." In the meantime, he sits everything out, while occupied with his trials and allows long-standing vineyards be uprooted by the kapos. Levin is threatening to walk if the judicial reforms don't move forward. Likud should replace Bibi with someone with yirat Shamayim and then we will have the help of HKBH.

Thank you for sharing your commentary. I was eager to consider all you said.

Twyla: Divisive actions from the 67 Summer of Love at the "Golden" Gate area reminds me of the "golden" calf and the division of the people with Moses too, if I am reasoning correctly. As you pointed out, at a young age you understood the inner workings of their actions, and results, years later. You chose a side, and so did I.

But is that not an "in house" issue? Meaning something that needs to be dealt with amongst Jews, the House of Israel? Gentiles cant do it, I remember the hoopla with Kanye. Can you imagine a scrutiny of the American government in like manner? How does the destruction of a xian nation (meaning liberty/freedom to choose) that shows hospitality to all "kinds", fit in this. Xians are their own "house", separate from the leftists in their own way, and separate from Jews, in my opinion. How exactly does G-d silence "kapo's" with Ohio derailment?

Anyway, I think I recall it being said here, the righteous would not be destroyed with the wicked. This Ohio catastrophe is indiscriminate, its the air, all waters, land, animals and humans, Jew, Gentile and Xian alike. It affects the "world" in atmosphere. From an article I read:

DIOXINS are created from the burning of chlorinated chemicals such as vinyl chloride
- Ohio train wreck contained perhaps 1 million gallons of vinyl chloride
- The MOST toxic synthetic chemical known to humankind
- 1/10,000th of a grain of salt in dioxins is the maximum lifetime exposure
- A single drop of dioxin-contaminated rain can EXCEED lifetime exposure limits
- Thousands of square miles of farmland now heavily contaminated with #dioxin fallout
- Dioxins are bioaccumulated in lipids (fats)
- Their half life in soils is 50 - 100 years
- This means all MEAT, milk, eggs, cheese from the area may be too toxic to consume
- Farms, homes and real estate will plunge to ZERO value
- The entire town may have to be condemned and bulldozed
- INDOOR pets are now dying from the exposure
- Mass animal die-offs continue to be discovered
- Total media cover-up as nearly entire corporate media LIES like Chernobyl
- Exclusive interview with hazardous materials incident expert
- Train "hot box" FAILED to be detected by sensors
- Incident commander should have NEVER ignited the vinyl chloride

Like everyone else, I'm trying to make sense of this with your End of Days blog, knowing G-d will always do what is right. Thank you, Twyla

If one looks at the Erev Rav as a foreign invasion, then there is nothing "in house" when they threaten Civil War when they lose control of the choosing of Judges.

In their attempt to be loved by the world by being kind to the cruel, to those who want us dead, the kind and the righteous are gunned down at the entrance of synagogues. This is a war for our survival. If they win, the righteous will end up spilling most of their blood so that those who want the world to see how tolerant they are will receive special protection. Hopefully G-d has another plan.

We do not have the final story yet. Leftist Jews have decided to use the autocratic power of being Sec of State for a demented Reprobate President and using the Supreme Court to legislate from the bench, by deciding who can marry whom, the fate of what was before 1967 the greatest gentile nation in human history. This pinnacle of power is in need of catastrophic collapse. America's power in the world is becoming a force for great evil as it becomes the mouthpiece for Gens X, Y, and Z below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah. If a Chernobyl like chemical spill makes a major contribution in that area, less Jewish blood will be spilt here in Israel when there is no reason to take America's opinion seriously anymore. It is the indirect way of bringing Geulah b'itah, being forced to depend upon the Almighty and not on the succulent pig. Yes it is painful to watch fish going belly up in the Ohio watershed. I much preferred the direct approach of miraculous protection from Gog ben Gog, but we lost that opportunity when we could not demonstrate a modicum of basic decency when dealing with the righteous in Jewish Gaza. B'itah is indirect and very messy. Hopefully we will see clarity very soon.

If nothing happens by Pesach, I have not decided where I will go from here.

The majority in E. Palestine voted for Trump, but Gov Shapiro as A.G. in the 2022 election lead the delegation of Pennsylvania's 20 electors to officially vote for Joe Biden to be President. This would be normal in a normal election. But Biden was already notably in early to mid stage dementia 6 months before that election. It is just another aspect of this that increases the Dystopian nature of this tragedy. Part of the Dystopia is how a horrible tragedy of environmental devastation can lead to more sharply rising anti-Semitism, blaming the Jews for the collapse of Civilization.

Dov, I don't know if you were disagreeing with me, or someone else re Pompeo, but in any case he is a missonary. He said it himself in the video. As for being loving, it's love-bombing to promote an agenda.

This is an extremely important shiur from Rav Yaakov Adas shlita, and it is worth listening to the whole thing, essential even.


הרב יעקב עדס - על האפיפיור והנצרות

The short version in English: xnity is the most tamei religion in the world, its whole purpose is to destroy Yahadut, there is a war in shamayaim to weaken it, distance yourself from it in every way, if you've been exposed to it go to the mikve, Rav Kaduri zatzal said that there are two things preventing yeshuot with respect to health (and let's take a minute to think about the horrible things people are going through), the avoda zara of xnity and nida, and how much he would pray for everyone to do tshuva on these two points at least. End of summary.

My thoughts: I don't understand why people like you, devoted to Torah and mitzvot, feel the need to praise a Xn missionary. Just as we have to do mitzvot with our thoughts, speech and actions, even if you're 'only' thinking or writing such things it gives them spiritual co'ach. This is true, if it's any Jew, but how much more so of someone who learns Torah. The same is true for geula bloggers who insist on using missionary websites, in their geula watching. They're not hastening the geula, the opposite.

Xnty is Chanuka (literally soul-destroying), Islam is Purim (death of the body). And of the two xnty is worse, as they want to destroy our olam hazeh and olam habah. They come bearing gifts (I can't be the only person who was taught as a child to be wary of strangers with puppies and sweets) in an attempt to deceive. And deceive they do.

I was not praising Mike Pompeo as a Missionary or even simply as a friend. But compared to the other 3 candidates who have announced as Republican nominees for what was at one time a majority Xtian country, Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis are running neck and neck as the two most qualified pro-Israel candidates for President. But I am in agreement with you. America is in spiritual collapse, and a fundamentalist Xtian has a 0% chance of winning the Presidency given America's present level in this collapse. And it is correct, at this stage we really do not want our Redemption to be a Fundamentalist Xtian project. The Xtian belief is a Tumah that acts as a stumbling block holding back the Messianic Era. Best to be free of their doctrine or chain of support in the stretch run for Messianic Redemption. It goes without saying, their Messiah is not ours. And their version of lishma righteousness is not ours either (even if we share many common values).

Up to 2.5 million gallons of one of the most toxic substances known to man have been released into the air, water and soil of the Eastern Seaboard, and are presently making their way south and east. Acid rain, which in this case is hydrochloric acid mixed with concentrated, unburned vinyl chloride, has (so far) been reported in every direction: • West: 400 miles west to Lafayette (probably further) • North: 1200 miles north up to Durham and Canada; • East: 1200 miles east to NYC and Boston • South: 800 miles southwest to Kentucky Vinyl chloride is toxic in extremely tiny amounts. Specifically, the metabolite chloroethylene oxide binds to guanine in our DNA completely and thoroughly destroying any affected DNA. It only takes the tiniest of exposures to be practically guaranteed severe cancers, particularly sarcoma of the liver, which is where that most toxic metabolite is first produced. Untold quantities of dioxin have also been produced: if vinyl chloride is the silver medalist of carcinogenicity, dioxin is the gold and it is far more persistent in the environment than even the vinyl chloride. A gigantic bonfi re of millions of gallons of vinyl chloride is the single worst chemical and environmental disaster imaginable. If the entirety of Lake Michigan had magically turned into VX gas - a rapidly lethal World War II nerve agent - it still wouldn’t be anywhere near this bad. Why, for the love of God, would anybody mix fifteen tanker trucks of nickel oxide into the spill? It is not a fire suppressant or dry powder agent like sodium bicarbonate. It is used as a flame retardant in small amounts for plastic mixtures (of which vinyl chloride is a precursor, to PVC), but absolutely not for anything approaching this scale. Poisoning half the country and destroying a majority of America’s farmland would be a great reason. The CDC also “updated (https://substack.com/redirect/3b6a834e-81dc-4b4e-a9bc-7c26aa067e7d?j=eyJ1IjoiMWQ0cnMifQ.Pv2Wj_96kmdkZHsj8vfLt5Cm4busGt2xEUKvpGP9rU8)” the data on vinyl chloride in late January, before the crash, and after 17 years untouched.

The EPA has also been very obviously falsifying air and water tests, and let’s not forget the reporter that was arrested for trying to investigate. Take hundreds of millions of heavily armed, very angry people, tell them that they have a few months to live (if they’re lucky), and that the very government they’re already angry at, has killed them: what do you think is going to happen when the sarcomas start appearing all over their bodies? It’s going to look like the biblical plague of boils; the first bowl of God’s wrath I don’t really want to begin to imagine what this is going to look like, but if it’s anything even approaching the scale of how it appears, it’s going to be very ugly. I would not want to stick around and find out. The cancers it causes are not ordinary cancers: they’re the product of your DNA being put through a meat grinder, and the most frequent occurrence of these sarcomas is in the liver, where the DNA-destroying metabolite is first produced from the vinyl chloride. Maybe large doses of ivermectin and fenbendazole could slow it down or enable the immune system to destroy it, but I am not optimistic. Consider it as dangerous as gamma radiation: it’s just as pervasive, and it kills in precisely the same way, destroying DNA. There’s some rumors that a few other compounds might help. -Originally Written Published by Adam Gertner on veryvirology.substack.com.

For me, saying he proved his loving friendship etc is praising him (and I don't distinguish between his missionary role, and him, when they are in, they are in).And I'm sorry Dov, but you killed me at the end, we do not share common values with them. My experience from travelling and meeting people from all major religions, some minor, or none at all, is that most people are nice and helpful. That is common to humanity. It particularly bothers me because xns and their Jewish enablers are always declaiming Judeo-Xn values, when there is no such thing. It's just a ploy to blur the boundaries between us.

For Gavriela:

Secretary Pompeo's remarks at the Prestonwood Baptist Church

Please see my comment of 7 Feb.

Today's missionaries are not frontal. They are highly devious. If you are interested see Lausanne.org for some of their tactics. Pompeo was a Deacon in a missionary church. This is someone who is committed. He said that he is using his position to further missionary work. If you watch the video and don't realise what he is saying it is because you don't understand missionese, a language unto itself.They build 'bridges', serve, reach, share, etc, etc, all of this is missionising. They are playing the long game. They want legitimacy from us. Building relationships is building their foundations. They are not going to missionise you or me, but if they have legitimacy from frum Jews, it paves the way for them to prey on the weak and vulnerable amongst us.

I read a document from 1981, that I can't find now, which set out their challenges for converting us. It was like Martians making a careful study of their prey. Every single kind of Jewish community in the world was described, by country, level of observance, stages of life etc, etc. On the Lausannse site you can see, how to missionise secular Israelis in Berlin, a missionary house set up on one of the popular routes for Israelis on their post-army trip, it's all very specific. And it's all part of their conclusion, that given our aversion to their religion, the way forward was to build relationships, not missionise directly. But it's all part and parcel. Pompeo a deacon in a missionary church, building 'loving' relationships with Jews. It's straight from their textbook.

It's very easy to see who is a missionary. You google the church they belong to, and that church's mission. If they hold or held any kind of position in it, it only strengthens the presumption. See them on YT and what they say to xns. That is who they are. Then you see their actions in the light of their beliefs not the other way round.

I just wish Moshiach were here already.

It brings to mind the volunteer nature of Ben Gvir's Gadlut to destroy the viper's nest of murderous activity in East Jerusalem. He has to "jump into the waters" to bring on the plagues because just like America having Homosexuals publicly flaunting their abomination in public, we have Knesset Speaker Ohana doing the same. So the Angels in Heaven ask, "Why should this people be redeemed? Are we any better than our foes?" So just as Nachshon son of the "Volunteer nation" (Aminadav) walked into the Waters of the Red Sea, so has Ben Gvir on his own volition taken on the vipers in E. Jerusalem. So G-d says "Ah Hah!" I will now act against Israel's foes in America by causing a plague in America's E. Jerusalem!

Remember they, our mortal foes, think E. Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine. This plague seems to have been chosen with pinpoint accuracy.

We Do share common values with them IF those values bring prosperity to the Nation. When the Requirement is to have those values lishma, only a few Xtians will come to the plate to show us support. It is in the Goal of having those values where Xtians and Frum Jews radically differ. So when there is little or no prosperity to be gained from human decency as defined by G-d, they check their human decency at the door and exile entire nations of Native Americans to Oklahoma (one of many such acts in American history when there was a conflict between prosperity and human decency). There they chose prosperity.

My childhood was very different than yours. I suffered from an emotional Holocaust at the Hands of Leftist Jews whose god was to be loved and popular in a world where the numbers of Reprobates was steeply growing. They served this god with vigor. For the first 12 years of my life , the ONLY people who treated me with kindness and who judged others kindly for choosing moral character development over hedonism were fundamentalist Xtians. Until I was 10 years old I did not understand that their culture of character development even existed until I went to an overnight camp in the Lake of the Ozarks. The Reform and Secular Jewish environment into which I was immersed was light yrs behind what I experienced for 4 weeks at Camp Wah-Kon-Dah. And for the first time in my life, I had self-esteem and esteem in the eyes of decent people. Of course, I regularly ran into their proselytizing Brigade as I grew up, but I knew that I was never going to believe as they did, and when They saw that I was not converting to their philosophical nonsense, they gave up on me and would start to converse about the things on which we agreed (from stopping 95% of abortions to Cardinal baseball). I know that they have this mission to proselytize. So I usually keep my friendships with them at arms length, wary about their ultimate motives. But you might be glad to know that many of them have worked enough on their character development, that their human decency transcends both their missionizing and their eschatology. They are definitely better human beings than the godless masses of Leftist Jews and Hedonists that have victoriously taken over America.

Eventually when I was 20 years old, I came to know and fall in love with Torah Judaism. But for most of my childhood, the only semblance of light which was definitely brighter than hedonistic Reform Judaism came from those Xtians whom I never came to hate although I want nothing from their mangod.

One point of note, the Owner and CEO of the Camp that nurtured Character development on the Lake of the Ozarks called Wahkondah was a politically and religiously Conservative Jew named Benny Kessler from Jefferson City, MO. He ran the Camp with love for over 20 years thru the Summer of 1969. In late 1969 he sold the Camp to the JCCA of S. Louis who overnight turned the Camp into a Den of Hedonism and Fun where all the Camp counselors in 1970, all of them, had been to Woodstock the previous summer. The Chadar Ochel regularly smelled like pot, and hallucenigenic drugs were easily to be had. The only values of any worth in that camp were Physical prowess and Fun, often at the expense of others. Benny Kessler stayed on to do odd jobs for the new owners of what became Camp Sabra.. I think he regretted making that sale of his wonderful camp to the S Louis JCCA for the rest of his life.

My counselor in 1969 was a Fundamentalist Xtian. His name was Bo. I have a picture of him in my home. His love was life-changing, and he NEVER proselytized Xtianity. He did proselytize character development though, and he changed my life,
mine along with all the 8 to 9 year old kids in our Cabin. I remember when that one camper died mentioned in that article. Ben sold the Camp that winter. What the JCCA did to replace counselors like Bo with all the veterans of Woodstock in 1970 turned Day into night. It was beyond sad. It was a nightmare, even if the kitchen at the New Camp Sabra was kosher. You see, my childhood was likely different than yours. I respect many Xtians even if I will never be one.

I am still thinking about this. It will be indicated by the next act of Yirat Shamayim by Ben Gvir, followed by a greater round of international condemnations and contempt, followed by the next Biblical plague. A pox on the houses of those who condemn us. If you live in their neighborhood, Move. This cloud of acid rain over the Eastern American Seaboard seeded with the waste products of burnt vinyl chloride is raining down on Reshayim. A Jew in the midst of this needs much righteousness to be protected from this plague. So move away from these Leftist Reshayim. At least live among people who do not hate you.

The Supreme Court acting as the final-word dictatorship, is not this fascism?
The supreme court is activated by a submission for judgment, but when all judges selected are of the same “intellectual and political persuasion” this creates a dictatorship
A dictatorship moulded by international non-Jewish (concepts of) law upon a jewish nation is foreign interference
A jewish nation in its proper functioning has Jewish laws that should govern
Once this occurs, it is then a true Jewish nation

Shabtsi the law you tout is a foreign (infected) law [like the S Ct] and should be corrected, not applied to Israelis and Israeli Land.

Netanyahu created the fuse that lit the protestors fire when he stated loudly that "Talmudic law" will be part of the judicial overhaul [possibly this was his way of actually preventing it, and creating the anti-element to fight against the more Jewish rightist members of the govt?]

Giving the national security minister the position to combat “anti-Incitement” appears to actually be pitting him (stoking the fire) against the police commissioner who is ALSO creating the same position manned by his police officers (trained in the same foreign legal concepts). Is this not a powder keg waiting for ignition?

They already follow our blogs.And social media. There's no privacy in Israel. And I have yet to hear Bibi say the proposed judicial reforms include Talmudic law. I've seen the headlines and stories, but I haven't heard an audio clip where he says this. Does anyone have a link to an audio or video clip of Bibi saying these things?

I should also point out in a heads up that since 5766 (2006), I have been giving painstaking evidence on this blog that Ehud Olmert is Armilus(the last Melekh from the Erev Rav) and therefore the future assassin of the Mashiach ben Yosef or ben Binyamin Melekh whose yichus is described in Zekharia 12 by the list of families that sit in Aveilut for him (House of Natan, Levite, and the family of Shimi ben Geira on his mother's side). I have frequently proven how that last pre-Messianic Melekh is none other than Binyamin Netanyahu. So be on the lookout for Olmert to enter from "Stage Left" to carry out what he believes is his mission, to preserve the Judiciary in the hands of the Erev Rav. Just be ready for sudden news in that area.

Zekharia haNavi chap 12 says that the last leader who is a Levite from "the House of Natan" who wants to destroy Amaleq in the Persian Empire, his life is in danger. That would be Bibi's life. Sefer Kol HaTor clearly says that Armilus wants to thrust him through with a dagger to prevent him from destroying the positions of power of the Erev Rav in Eretz Yisrael. There're three such places of power for the Erev Rav in which G-d is absent. 1. The Stormy Wind- which the Chafetz Chaim identified with International Labor and Bolshevism

2. The רעש - The Electronic Media

3. The flashing Fire- The Judiciary

The entire inyan for calling half of Israel Palestine is the de-Judification of Eretz Yisrael, that Xtian world has usurped Judaism and replaced the need of a Temple in Jerusalem by making one's own heart a Temple for the Holy Spirit. This is one of the things, part of the nonsense, in which they believe. Naming Eretz Israel after an extinct enemy which in 135 ce had been extinct for almost 800 years continued to make sense when Constantine Xtianized the Roman Empire and made Palestine its province in Eretz Yisrael. They could only do so after they had convinced themselves and others that Xtianity had theologically replaced Judaism as G-d's preferred Religious system of perfecting the world. As mentioned above, the first gentile based Xtian community to claim Xtianity as a Replacement theology that had usurped Judaism were the Xtians of Antioch.

Hadrian renamed Judea, Samaria, and the Galil to be Syria-Palestina in 135ce in order to de-Judaize the Land after crushing the 3rd Judean Revolt. The Romans actually had done this before after crushing the Carthaginians three times in war. So this was standard Roman practice after crushing 3 revolts. But after the Council of Nicea almost 200 years later, Constantine made this Name change a foundational doctrine in his New Religion/ Church that had replaced the Jews and Judaism. We were destined to wander the earth until the end of time. Judea would never be re-established, for the Xtian Palestine had usurped Judea even though the Mediterranean Sea People who worshiped a Merman fish god (dagon) named Peleshet ceased to exist between 650 and 600 bce.

From Wikipedia:

The city [Antioch] was also the main center of Hellenistic Judaism at the end of the Second Temple period.

Antioch was part of the pentarchy and was called "the cradle of Christianity" as a result of its longevity and the pivotal role that it played in the emergence of early Christianity.[5] The Christian New Testament asserts that the name "Christian" first emerged in Antioch.[6]

The city declined to relative insignificance during the Middle Ages due to warfare, repeated earthquakes, and a change in trade routes.
