The Global Show

In recent days, we saw another face of cruelty, murder and blood. We saw a complete show. And I'm saying 'show' because it's clear that it was planned by Edom. And with not-the-best actors, and they added to it some unbalanced Muslims, and they really made a wretched film, maybe 'D' level... It may be that the majority of the people in the world believe in it, but there are enough wise ones who see that it's a lie from beginning to end. Indeed, it's true, they murdered people, much blood flowed, but these actors, and this play were really unbelievable. Whose play was it?... the terrorists, or whoever they really are?... or those who were killed?... the enormous tragedy. But, all forty heads-of-state of the world - were really the worst actors.

We're in a war between Edom and Yishmael, and that's clear. And they're both at war with the Jews. And it's clear that slowly-slowly, and it's already not-so-slowly, the Shekhina is leaving the lands of the world and is gathering here in Eretz Yisrael. In France, it's already been happening for a long time. And the Jews there already for a long time have begun to fear, and they have what to fear, because they're using the Arabs to make the Jews flee and in order to cause great chaos in the world, this with the objective of taking the Edomite soldiers and the police of Edom, and putting them in every place, in Europe, in America, in Australia, etc., so they can take over, so that people will be afraid of the Islamic evildoers, who are of course evil, those who are making violence, but, it's not alright - the magnitude of what they are intending to do for the sake of it. And if only they would like to stop this, it would not be such a big problem at all, only what? They want what is called in English 'the boogeyman', someone who will scare them, so that they will ask, the population of the world will request from the Americans, the Europeans, and from all the English-speaking countries and the non-English-speaking countries, what is called 'the West', that they will 'save them' and that the army will 'protect them', so thus they will allow the 'so-called democracy' to turn back into 'dictatorship'. And that's the situation.


Don't worry, more attacks will come, already they put a threat on the internet about all the American soldiers and also, about the police, and about practically all the citizens to be very careful because they are planning to make big trouble for the United States, Canada, England, and Australia, etc., and they're calling for each crazy Islamist to take some weapon or some object that can be turned into a weapon and to kill, and to kill, and to kill.

There are also Jews within this threat, but the Jews here are not the very most important. There's also some reason that the Prime Minister here in Israel wants to bring all the Jews to Eretz Yisrael. Probably, here he wants to make them goyim. He wants to bring everyone here and he is even saying it to the resentment of the Prime Minister of France who doesn't want them to say it supposedly, but nevertheless he said it when the French President and all the people and clergy and all the important people left the synagogue, so Netanyahu could speak 'heimishe' to all the Jews who were crying out, and they shrieked with joy and clapped hands... They - the people there - they are innocent people, they love Eretz Yisrael, and the majority are coming from the Mizrachi community who love Eretz Yisrael very much, they feel that it's the Holy Land in truth, and the majority are mitzvah-observant, and the majority even plan at some stage, they're always intending to arrive to Eretz Yisrael and part of them are succeeding only when they are burying them, but there are those for whom it is their dream.

But, the Prime Minister of Israel - he has other plans. And it's that he is pulling the Jews 'to come to their home' and it sounds so 'Jewish', that he even really believes in something - it's all a big lie. He's dragging them to Eretz Yisrael, apparently, for other reasons, as we're seeing with all the laws that he is permitting to be passed, even though he doesn't show that he is so 'for', but he also isn't 'against'. So, apparently, the plan is to bring the Jews to Eretz Yisrael, to brainwash them and turn them into goyim, like so many, many from the seculars here who were turned into 'supposedly goyim'. Indeed the Jew remains a Jew - no matter what. And this is part of the war of Gog and Magog.

And the war really already started. There's also a lot of blood that's been spilled, and there's also the situation of antisemitism, and also the blood of Jews that's been spilled, like those who went to do shopping for Shabbat and part of them - their end is burial in Eretz Yisrael. The Jews are suffering and all the gentiles are suffering. So, we really are within, let's call it: 'World War Three that leads us to Gog uMagog'. We see it clearly. And even if you live in the United States and you don't feel it on your skin - give it a little while and it will come. They've already threatened the United States with a little movie, like a video on the internet, and they said explicitly that everyone-everyone is in danger from them. Everyone. And they want to do, and they will do, just as they're saying. Afterwards, they'll make another video to scare everyone with their evilness. They're taking a ten year old boy and asking him 'Why does he want to fight?...' So he says all kinds of words of praise about what they believe. Then they show two Russians that they captured in a line of people who came to harm the righteous Muslims, and they're standing there, and the boy takes a rifle, and he approaches and kills them in front of the cameras, a ten year old boy, and they collapse on the floor. It's really an 'intimidation program', like when they're cutting off heads. Apparently the boy wasn't strong enough to do that. So, this is exactly how they are doing it. But, you should know, he's not the only one who is a soldier at the age of ten. There are thousands or perhaps hundreds of thousands of children in Africa for example, whom they are taking to serve in the armies as soldiers. We don't know what is happening in this world, we don't know what filth there is among the gentiles, we in the West, like-as if, we're 'good', we're 'honest', we're 'moral', but it's all a lie, it's a lie.

In recent days we've reached a situation that we've become such drunks on all our materialism until we went down, all of us, the whole world descended in all of the most basic things in every religion there is. We, the Jews, are going against the Torah, many Jews are going against the Torah, too many Jews are going against the Torah. And the gentiles are going against their religion, really against the most basic things, things that once if someone would go against - he would be ashamed, he would keep it secret, but now he goes into the street and shouts like he is the-best-person-in-the-world, like it's the ideal...! And it's filth. The filth is ruling over the world more and more, shelo neida, until the person is sure that we are in Egypt, the whole world has turned into Egypt. How can it be?!... Turned really into Egypt! So much! And if when it was Egypt then, at least we could live in Canaan, but like today, also in Canaan there is 'Egypt'! In every place there is Egypt. It's impossible to run away from it. Only what, here, in Eretz Yisrael, anyway, we have here the Shekhina close to us. And when we go to the Kotel or whoever goes to the kevarim of the greatest Tzadikim, we feel the presence of the Shekhinah. But, we don't even have to [do] that, it's enough that someone prays with all his heart to HKB"H and spends time alone with HKB"H - he can also feel the Shekhinah very strongly. And true, also abroad if you very, very much want it, if you very, very much think about it, it's possible to spend time alone with HKB"H, but it will become more and more difficult, because the Shekhinah is disappearing from all the western lands and from all the other lands. And what remains? Just hamburgers, pizza and ice cream. And nothing more.

So, therefore, here in Eretz Yisrael we have the same problem, those evildoers want, and to a certain extent are succeeding, to really settle here, but we have the Shekhinah here and because the Shekhinah is located here in much greater power than any other place,  in much greater strength than any place else, so we can return, return to the good. We can build communities, even the smallest, but communities who are trying to return to what once was, to truth, to the truth.

And each community like this, each family like this, each person like this, will bring light to the world, and this light will be so powerful, so significant, it will change everything, that is to say that HKB"H will see that Am Yisrael, whoever is really 'Am Yisrael', understands the mistake and tries, no matter how hard it will be - to go against society and to return to Judaism as required. And when the Greeks will set upon us and will say: No! Forbidden! They won't allow us, won't allow us true conversion, won't allow us circumcision as required, etc., etc., - we will do it nevertheless. Then, it will create like this a connection with HKB"H [because of] which no one can succeed to finish us. We will sprout anew - all Am Yisrael and we'll return to HKB"H, and will receive our righteous Mashiach, and will return to the state of humanity [as it was] before the sin of the first man.

I warn you all that it won't be easy, you're feeling, and seeing, and hearing news, and seeing how extraordinarily cruel they are. Indeed it's not so 'extraordinary' because most of the people in the world are extraordinarily cruel. We know this, we know that many doctors put people to death because they don't have the patience to care for them or because they've made a calculation that a person doesn't have anything to give to the world, so therefore it's possible thus to disconnect him from the devices, shelo neida, or simply to take out children from the mother because the mother doesn't want him so much, or because of all kinds of reasons. They have no problem to murder. So, if we have such "cultured" people, doctors who can murder, so why not the 'beast-man', the Arab?... Then, he for sure can murder! Or some black in Africa, there they are fighting the 'African Muslims' with the 'African Christians' who they're both actually neither 'Muslim' nor 'Christian'... They're simply primitives, and they don't have any difficulty murdering in the worst way.

So, we, Am Yisrael, we need to save the world. Hashem will save the world and we need to show Him that we want to do His will and this will save us and the whole world.

I have to stop the translation of this latest message at this point. I feel the need to elaborate further on this. I know this sounds crazy and too 'conspiratorial' to the average person, but it really is a fact and there are videos on Youtube which get into it in depth. Some unfortunately claim no one was killed, but those who planned and carried out the attacks for sure wanted people to die and for blood to flow - just like the almost 3000 who died in the attack on the Twin Towers.

Look at how they manipulated the entire 'civilized' world. How many millions using social media used the "Je suis Charlie" icon? And how many rushed to get a copy of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper? What's worse - how many of them were Israelis wearing kippot??? Think about it. How did they manage to bring world leaders to Paris in the space of hours along with a million demonstrators with copy-cat gatherings held around the world - including Jerusalem! 

They seem to have three goals here: 1) to justify killing ever more Yishmaelim, 2) to drive Jews to Israel where it will be easier to annihilate us all together, and 3) to further enslave the masses and consolidate their global power.

I hope none of my readers participated or contributed to this MASS MIND MANIPULATION. There's more, but I'm out of time for now. Please view the following video and leave your comments...




PS: Also, be thinking about the new rapprochement between the US and Cuba with the stated goal of bringing better internet access, keeping in mind that this is what Alan Gross was doing when he was arrested.

Every Israelite is a "Jew"

5 Shevat 5775
Shavua Tov

Why are the Jewish people called "Yehudim"? 
(Shared from Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi's facebook page)

When our matriarch Leah gave birth to her fourth child she called him "Yehuda" to give thanks to the Almighty that He had given her more than her share. Jacob had 4 wives and there was a prophecy that he would have 12 sons - so Leah gave thanks that the Almighty gave her more than her share (4 sons and not just 3 sons). Likewise, the Jewish people are grateful to the Almighty for giving us abundant blessings.
One has a choice in life to choose his attitude. How we view events depends on our past experiences and how we have trained ourselves to view what happens to us. One can see the glass half full or half empty - and that does not have to depend on whether one is pouring the water or drinking the water! Some people might even look at the glass as being too big for the amount of water...
The Torah strongly emphasizes the character trait of gratitude both in the examples of our forefathers and in the commandments set forth for us to fulfill. When the Jews crossed the Yam Suf (the Sea of Reeds often mistakenly called the Red Sea) the first thing they did was to sing a song of thanks to the Almighty for saving them from the Egyptians. Farmers are instructed to bring up to Jerusalem the first fruits that their trees produce (when they would spot the buds they would tie a ribbon around the branch to remember which one). (For more examples, please ... read the Torah!)
The Sages of the Talmud set forth a practical daily program - our own personal training program - to develop the character trait of gratitude. The first words we utter in the morning are the "Modeh Ani":
"I give thanks before You, ever living and eternal King, that You have returned to me my soul in compassion. Great is Your faithfulness."
Three times a day - the morning, the afternoon, the night - a Jew stops his activity to focus on the Almighty to give thanks and to make requests. Three times a day we train on bringing a spiritual element into how to view life.
In the morning prayer service we start out with a series of blessings thanking the Almighty for: our eyes, that we can see, that we can move our bodies, that we have clothes and shoes, that we have another opportunity to do the Almighty's will and fulfil His commandments to perfect ourselves and His world.
In Pirkei Avos (Ethics of the Fathers) 4:1, Ben Zoma asks, "Who is the rich person?" and he answers, "One who is happy in his portion." If you want to be happy in your portion then you have to focus on your portion. Make a list of all that you have to be grateful for: that you can breathe, that you can see, that you can hear, that you can think. Constantly review and add to the list. And thank the Almighty for what you have.
I have a friend who has a serious life threatening medical situation. Any moment he could die (then again, any moment ANY of us could die!). When I ask him, "How are you?" He always replies with a happy laugh, "It's a great day to be alive! Every day you look at the grass from the top down is a great day!"
Life is filled with difficulties, but it is also filled with joys. If we focus that each second is good then we have minutes of good seconds. And if we focus on each minute being good we have hours of good minutes. And if we focus on the good hours we have days of good hours - and eventually we have a great life!
When I visited the Holocaust Memorial in Washington, D.C. I was most moved by an audio testimony. A man spoke: "One day I saw my friend Chaim praying. It was too late for the morning service and too early for the afternoon service. I asked him, 'Chaim, what are you praying?' He responded, 'I am thanking God.' I asked him, 'Chaim, look around you, you're in a death camp, people are being tortured and dying. What do you possibly have to thank God for?' Replies Chaim, 'I am thanking God I am one of us and not one of them.' "
It's your choice and in your power how you view life.

Arguing Against Redemption, Then and Now
by Daniel Pinner

“The Children of Israel’s habitation of Egypt, which they dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it happened at the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day, all the Legions of Hashem went out from the land of Egypt” (Exodus 12:40-41).

The most obvious problem with this is that the Children of Israel were definitely not in Egypt for 430 years!

G-d had promised Abraham: “Know for a surety that your seed will be strangers in a land not theirs, and they will serve them, and they will oppress them for four hundred years” (Genesis 15:13). These “four hundred years” began with the birth of Isaac: though Isaac was born and lived his entire life in Canaan, he was already “a stranger in a land not his”, because though the Land had already been promised to Abraham’s descendents, they had not yet actually taken possession of it. As proof of this, when Abraham (who described himself as “an alien and a sojourner” – Genesis 23:4) wanted a plot of land to bury his wife Sarah, he had to buy it from the Hittite (Genesis 23:9-20).

The Targum Yonatan renders Exodus 12:40: “The days that the Children of Israel dwelt in Egypt were thirty Shmitta-year cycles, which equal 210 years; and a total of 430 years passed from when Hashem had spoken to Abraham, from the time He had spoken to him on the 15th of Nisan in [the Covenant] between the Parts, until the day that they left Egypt”.

The result is that even though the Jews had known ever since that they were doomed to 400 years of exile and slavery, in the event the oppression lasted far less than four centuries. We were in Canaan for the first 190 years of that 400-year period, and in Egypt for a total of 210 years; the slavery only began after the last of Jacob’s sons died – that is, when Levi died in the year 2331, ninety-three years after the descent to Egypt (following Seder Olam Zuta, Chapter 4 and Midrash Rabbeinu Bechayye, Exodus 1:6); and the hideously harsh oppression began when Miriam was born, eighty-six years before the redemption (Shir ha-Shirim Rabbah 2:1 [11] and Yalkut Shimoni, Song of Songs 986).

And so, when Moshe announced to the Hebrews that the redemption was at hand, “they said to him: Moshe Rabbeinu [our Master], how can we be redeemed? Did G-d not tell Abraham that ‘they will serve them, and they will oppress them for four hundred years’ (Genesis 15:13)?! And we have only been here for two hundred and ten years!” (Shir ha-Shirim Rabbah 2:1 [8]).

Moshe’s response was simple: “Since He delights in your redemption, He does not look at your calculations, but ‘skips over the mountains’ (Song of Songs 2:8), and the ‘mountains’ here are the calculations of when the end time will come; so you will be redeemed in this month” (Shir ha-Shirim Rabbah ibid.).

We had been in Egypt for 210 years, and G-d had started the 400-year countdown 190 years before Jacob and his ten sons went down to Egypt.

This Midrash teaches us a simple yet crucial lesson: it is not for us to decide when G-d sends His nation’s redemption. When Moshe came to redeem Israel, it was not the secularists of his day who rejected the redemption – it was the tzaddikim, the most devout and pious of Jews, the Satmar Hassidim and the Neturei Kharta of that generation, who gave halakhic arguments for staying in Egyptian exile and rejecting the return to Zion: the time has not yet come, and it is forbidden for us to hasten the redemption ahead of its time!

But G-d punished these devout heretics and pious sinners in Egypt harshly: “Why did G-d bring the Plague of Darkness?... Because there were sinners among the Israelites who had Egyptian patrons; they had wealth and honour, and did not want to leave Egypt. G-d said: If I smite them publicly and they die, then the Egyptians will say: Just as the Plagues came upon us, they also came upon them. Therefore, He brought the three-day darkness upon the Egyptians, so that the Jews could bury their dead without their enemies seeing” (Sh’mot Rabbah 14:3).

Thus when the Torah tells us that the Children of Israel left Egypt “armed” (Exodus 13:18), the Midrash homiletically relates the word chamushim (armed) to the word chamesh (five) – that is, only one Jew in five left Egypt alive, the other four-fifths having died in the Plague of Darkness (Mekhilta de-Rabbi Yishma’el, Pis’cha 13; Tanhuma, Beshallach 1; Yalkut Shimoni, Bo 208 et al).

Jews living in slavery in Egypt, finding halakhic arguments for staying in exile, enjoying their crumbs of prestige, preferring the known hardships of exile to the as-yet-unseen glories of redemption…how depressingly familiar all of this sounds to us today…

This is the paradigm for every return to Israel.

A year and four months after the Exodus came the sin of the spies who incited the entire nation to reject the Land of Israel. The punishment that G-d decreed upon the nation was an extra generation of exile in the Sinai Desert: “As the number of days that you spied out the Land, forty days – a day for a year, a day for a year – you will bear your iniquities for forty years” (Numbers 14:34).

It may have seemed from this that we would be condemned to wander in the desert for an extra forty years – but no: the forty-year countdown was retroactively backdated to have begun from the day of the Exodus, not the day of the sin.

And more than this, we were in the Sinai Desert for less than forty years: the Exodus occurred on the 15th of Nisan, and Joshua led us across the River Jordan into the Land of Israel just under forty years later on the 10th of Nisan (Joshua 4:19), five days before the 40-year punishment should have finished.

It is quite easy to imagine that day, as Joshua began to lead the nation across the River Jordan, some of the tzaddikim began protesting: Joshua, Joshua, the time to enter the Land of Israel has not come yet! There are another five days still to go! We are obligated to stay here in exile! You are rebelling against G-d by trying to hasten the redemption…

Fast-forward 835 years. King Yehoyakim (Jehoiakim) has been on the throne of Judea for four years, and 800 km (500 miles) to the east Nebuchadnezzar has just ascended to the throne of Babylon. The Middle East is in turmoil, with Babylon (Iraq), Persia (Iran), Assyria (Turkey) and Egypt all flexing their military muscles, trying to impose their hegemony over the entire region.

Moab and Ammon (Jordan) and Aram (Syria) are carrying out periodic border-raids against Judea. Judea’s future is insecure at best, in the midst of all these hostile powers.

Sound familiar?

And in the midst of all this, the prophet Jeremiah is speaking “to the entire nation of Judea and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem” (Jeremiah 25:2), telling them of the impending Babylonian invasion: “This entire Land will be a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon for seventy years” (v. 11). And about sixteen years later, after Babylon had already conquered Judea and carted off most of the Jews into exile, Jeremiah sent a letter to the Jewish exiles in Babylon: “Thus says Hashem: When seventy years will have been completed for Babylon, I will remember you and I will fulfil for you My good word, to return you to this place” (Jeremiah 29:10).

This sounds unequivocal: the exile in Babylon is predestined to last seventy years, not a day less. Yet Koresh (Cyrus), king of Persia, who had inherited the Median Empire when Daryavesh (Darius) the Mede died, proclaimed the Jews’ right to return to the Land of Israel just 52 years after Nebuchadnezzar had exiled them.

Only in retrospect did they realise that G-d had set the 70-year countdown ticking from Nebuchadnezzar’s first invasion of Judea. (Judea was subsequently a semi-autonomous vassal-state of Babylon for three years, before rebelling and reasserting their independence. The second Babylonian invasion happened some seven years later, and the destruction of the Holy Temple and the mass exile to Babylon was ten years after that.)

The same paradigm still held: the return to Zion happened earlier than it appeared to have been prophesied, even though the 70-year prophecy would have seemed unequivocal to the Jews of the generation.

This has direct practical implications for the third and final redemption, the opening phases of which we are currently living through. Of course, as happened before, there is no shortage of pious and devout heretics who fulminate that the time has not yet come, that it is forbidden for us to hasten the redemption ahead of its time, that the Jewish nation today is not worthy of redemption.

Of course, as before, there are many – all too many – devout and pious Jews who give halakhic arguments for staying in exile and reject the return to Zion, preferring the opulence and physical comforts of Flatbush, Golders Green, and Strasbourg to the as-yet-unseen glories of redemption. Moshe heard all these spurious claims more than thirty-three centuries ago – and answered them all decisively.

The Midrash (Shir ha-Shirim Rabbah 2:1 [8], cited above) continues: “When Moshe told Israel, ‘You will be redeemed in this month’, they said to him: ‘Moshe Rabbeinu, how can we be redeemed? After all, we have no good deeds to our merit!’ He responded to them: ‘Since He delights in your redemption, He does not look at your bad deeds. At whom does He look? – At the [genuine] tzaddikim among you and at their deeds, such as Amram and his household’”.

When Moshe came to redeem us from Egyptian slavery 3,327 years ago, he taught us some of the great principles which apply eternally: that when G-d desires to redeem us, He does so in His time and for His reasons; that it is not for us to decide that the time has not yet come, or that the nation of Israel is not worthy; that in the time of redemption, there will be Jews who will bring seemingly honest arguments against returning to Zion; but that however sincere they might be in their mistaken beliefs, they will not succeed in delaying the redemption.

When will the redemption come? “Today, if you will listen to His voice” (Psalms 95:7).

Curious Connections

1 Shevat 5775
Rosh Chodesh


From An Anthology of the Gaon by Rabbi Moshe Tzuriel:

"The purpose in our bringing about the ingathering of the exiles is to set up faithful people for the sake of the unification of the two moshiachs (i.e., Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid) in the gates of Jerusalem."
__________________

There is more than one way in and out of the city of Jerusalem, but everyone who has ever been here can attest to the fact that there is one entrance that is designated as The Entrance to the City. There are even buildings in that area called Sha'arei Yerushalayim - the Gates of Jerusalem. 

In the past, I found it more than a little interesting that Rav Kook set up his yeshivah in this area - in Kiryat Moshe and Givat Sha'ul. It's also where Rav Mordechai Eliyahu lived, where Rav Meir Kahane lived, and a bit further on, in Har Nof, where Maran Ovadiah Yosef lived and established his organization. 

It's also where the Erev Rav regime chose to set up their immense "government complex" including the Knesset, the Supreme Court, Bank of Israel, etc. Not far from there, opposite Har Nof, is Yad Vashem - the place which someone once dubbed the 'Temple' of the secular Zionists.

So, here we have the Erev Rav regime...  and the representatives of authentic Torah, the "faithful people", as if set in opposition to each other - like chess pieces facing off - right in the gates of Jerusalem. 

MK Eli Yishai lives in Har Nof... actually, very near to the beit knesset where the horrible massacre recently took place.  Yesterday, I read a report which mentioned that MK Eli Yishai is about to move from Har Nof into the Mishkenot Ha'Uma complex - practically a stone's throw from the Knesset

'Check'!

Let's hope 'checkmate' won't be far behind.

Important Information Regarding the Erev Rav

29 Tevet 5775
Erev Rosh Chodesh


Excerpted from The End of Days, Vol 1 by Shmuel Raber...
What is the practical way to confront the airev rav?
The truth is that actual warfare should have taken place, but because of the lowliness of their situation, the remnants of the exile will find themselves so enveloped by the weighty peels and thorns of the airev rav, that they will not have the ability to go out to battle as did our forefathers, the Hasmoneans. The numerous "Hellenists" will greatly outnumber the few "Maccabees," so there will be no one able to stand up to try to protect them. Their inability to wage war directly does not testify to the fact that they have lost hope; rather, it forces them to wage a conflict in a circumventive way.
...The key resource that we possess that can light up the darkness of the present is the light of the Torah. ...The goal is to spread Torah and fear of Heaven in public and to teach the Nation of Israel that Hashem is true and His Torah is true....

What is our obligation towards the airev rav?
The reality of the exile under the airev rav obligates us to build a plan truly relating to it, and to uproot from our hearts false ideals that have become imbued because of the lack of understanding of the true opinion and ideals of the Torah. The assumption that we and the airev rav constitute a single nation is patently invalid, because the airev rav disconnected themselves from the Nation of Israel, thereby canceling our obligation towards them as full-fledged Jews. For this reason, we are obligated to view the airev rav as a peel that has cut itself off from the living fruit - to recognize that they are another nation that has usurped the Jewish mannerisms and customs, show them in their true light, and abhor their new values and ideals and their rebellion against the Kingdom of Heaven....
Is there any necessity to be grateful to the airev rav for protecting us?
The rule of the airev rav, their dominant influence in all walks of life, and the feeling they have implanted in us that they look out for our benefit has created in us gratitude to the peel and the thorns that watch over the fruit and the rose. However, knowing that the main goals of the airev rav are to force their values on the Jewish Nation and deny the people the rule of the Torah must make us realize our mistake. We must understand that the airev rav does not guard and protect us, [Hashem does].... [They] are only being used as messengers to implement the will of Heaven.
Are we obligated to separate ourselves from the airev rav?
In the End of Days the task of separating the good people from the evil ones must take place. We must recognize and differentiate between the airev rav, who have removed from themselves the yoke of the Torah and the fear of Heaven, and the good simple people who, in spite of the fact that they have become lax in their fulfillment of the Torah and mitzvot, still retain the title of Israel by honoring and appreciating Torah and Torah learners.
In addition, the external classification must be accompanied by an internal separation from the airev rav. Each one will have to uproot from his heart the influence of the airev rav. Each one will have to acknowledge the despicableness of the culture of the airev rav and abstain from it....

A New World Order

Q. What about the airplanes that fell, three planes fell in recent months... One disappeared, one was shot down, and the last one just suddenly fell with many passengers...

A. I don't know what it is exactly with these planes, but beyond a shadow of a doubt, it's not without purpose. Without a shadow of a doubt, it belongs to whichever plot of the evildoers to drive the world crazy. It's not worthwhile even to think about it. But, whoever goes up in a plane when he isn't forced to - I'm really amazed at him.

Q. And those who are coming now to Israel...

A. Good, they're coming to Eretz Yisrael, so it's more protected when they're coming to Eretz Yisrael.

Q. By the same token, they are also capable of trying to send an atom bomb just for show...

A. Correct. They will, of course, launch missiles with nuclear warheads and it will kill millions,  but what do they care?! They'll sit within their bunkers. There are amazing bunkers in the United States and in all the world, giant bunkers, deep, that it's possible to sit there and see movies, and go swimming, when above everyone is dead. And it's not only this. In the United States, there is for the president and his group, and a few more people, some of the military and etc., in all kinds of cities, bunkers linking them one to the other with actual paved roads underground, two ways!... And it's big enough and wide enough in there to bring in semi-trailers! So, they don't think anything of it. They have entertainment there, they have food there, they're even growing food there below the ground!... And these goyim who live in the United States - they have a great fear, those who understand what's happening. And they're not just a few people.

Q. Their craving is to kill people?...

A. Their craving - it's all the craving in the world, just say which - that's their craving. The absolute lowest craving - these are their cravings. They are people with a lust for 'without limit'. The limit - it's the body, because the body can do until a certain point. But, their imagination is 'aboe and beyond' and that's what will bring them down.

Q. Is the permission that they have from Heaven connected to our sins?

A. All their evilness belongs to every sin that there is in the world.  Every most base, most disgusting thing that's happening in the world - And it's simply hard to believe that such a thing exists in this reality in this generation. After World War II, then we thought, not just the Jews - also, the gentiles thought that we are 'the generation of good ones'... of 'cultured people'... 'civilized'... 'democratic'... it's all nonsense! Everything nonsense. And like today, thirteen years after the fall of the Twin Towers, we saw the spiritual deterioration in all the world, in every group, that never was like this. Maybe in the Generation of the Flood. Actually, no, also the Generation of the Flood wasn't like this despicable one ...

Q. Also, this year, and it's not the first time, they closed the area in Kever Rachel at Christmas, kicked out all the Jews, and brought in the Christians inside the kever. So, here we see clearly how they are taking over here...

A. They're not just taking over, and in a little while, you'll also see the Pope here. He wants very much, he and the people behind him, those above him, see, see how much they so want to sit here, so much aspire to show the world that they are stronger than HKB"H, G-d forbid, and you'll see, Hashem will show everyone, He will raise us up strongly to the top and He will show His power, and it will allow the whole world to understand that this people, even though it is small and 'tiny' - it has HKB"H. And it will frighten the whole world, a 'tiny' people  - against the whole world. But, this power - it's only because they will see that HKB"H is with us, therefore, they will fear. And this will raise up every single Jew in the eyes of the goyim to a level that is impossible to describe.

Q. Here, thus is written 'See, of all the peoples of the earth, Hashem's Name is called upon you, and they will see from you'...

A. Exactly. Exactly. it will be without weapons, without anything, maybe a few weapons, but not like them, but, nevertheless - they'll just look, and they will see that behind each Jew an angel is standing!... And they will be very afraid!

Q. Now, they are even disturbing, not allowing the Jews to pray in the holy places, what a war!...

A. That's it. We are feeling it more and more. And you are also really seeing more and more their whole takeover of the health system. You need to be very careful, in this matter, the adults need to be very careful, because they have no problem putting them to death. They're building big hospitals, magnificent, they suddenly have money from all kinds of directions, and it's not from the government, it's from other places, a flow of money 'not without purpose'.

You will begin to see how they are taking over in every place they are going, in every place you need an identity card, and credit card, and they need to see a person, to photograph him, everything 'information', 'information'. And you indeed know that every conversation you have - it's all recorded. They don't just sit and listen to it, but when they want to look for something on a person, they're finding it. They don't need any kind of wireless eavesdropping device, they have systems. They can store millions upon millions upon millions of conversations on some tiny card. They need to know where every person lives, etc., and of course, the cell phones, within the phones themselves they have something that makes it possible to track them. They even have televisions that when they sell them it's written on them that they have a camera inside and also something that's recording, so be careful what you say. And also, there is even a washing machine like this... And in every place, there are cameras, and it was already spoken of many years ago. We are being photographed from all directions. Hashem is showing us what it means that you can't hide, because whether it's hearing or seeing, or seeing as well as hearing... they are 'on us' - really from all directions.

Q. Is it necessary because of concerns about the future to prepare water and food in the house?

A. You need food for two weeks, and if a real-Jew doesn't prepare enough, then Hashem will take care of him.

...

Q. The hard situation that you're speaking about here - is it in the whole world or in Israel?

A. Now, for example, in the United States, it's going to be a web of horror, something absolutely terrible, and in a very big area in the United States.
