SUN SIGNS

30 Tishrei 5775
Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan Aleph
Erev Shabbat Kodesh


On Sunday, October 19th, Comet Siding-Spring passed very, very close to Planet Mars. When it did, there was reportedly an explosion in the Mars atmosphere and solar activity exploded as well...
Solar activity is high. Since the week began, giant sunspot AR2192 has produced 27 C-class solar flares, 9 M-class flares, and 2 X-flares.

Remarkably, not one of the explosions so far has hurled a significant CME toward Earth. The primary effect of the flares has been to ionize Earth's upper atmosphere, causing a series of short-lived HF radio communications blackouts. Such blackouts may be noticed by amateur radio operators, aviators, and mariners.
Earth-effects could increase in the days ahead. AR2192 has an unstable 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful explosions, and the active region is turning toward Earth. NOAA forecasters estimate a 95% chance of M-class flares and a 55% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours.  (Spaceweather.com)
In the years since I began keeping up with this website, I have never seen anything like this. Even NASA felt obliged to comment on it, as did CBS news and others.

If you are in North America, you probably witnessed the partial solar eclipse which occurred yesterday. The sun, representative of the nations, was partially eclipsed by the moon which represents Am Yisrael.

The Torah informs us that...
...God said, "Let there be luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to separate between the day and between the night, and they shall be for signs and for appointed seasons and for days and years. (B'reishit 1:14)
Moishela said: "...After Succos, Simchas Torah the world will become so so different, so horribly different that it will be absolutely unrecognizable."

We don't know what it is he foresees or exactly when this change is expected to take place, but this chain of events began immediately after Simchat Torah and Shabbat B'reishit. And it appears to be developing right before our eyes, except few are paying attention. G-d alone knows how it is going to end, but some speculate...
Solar Storm 14 Times Larger Than Earth Could Unleash A Society-Crippling Electromagnetic Pulse
Did you know that a storm 14 times larger than the Earth is happening on the sun right now? Earlier this week, it unleashed a flare which was a million times more powerful than all of the nuclear weapons in existence combined.
Fortunately, that flare was not directed at us. But now the area of the sun where this solar storm is located is rotating toward Earth. An eruption on the sun at just the right time and at just the right angle could result in a society-crippling electromagnetic pulse blasting this planet.

...Scientists tell us that the absolutely massive sunspot group that has recently formed on the sun is highly unusual. NASA has described it as “crackling” with magnetic energy. The mainstream media has not been paying too much attention to it, but this sunspot group is potentially extremely dangerous.
You can read the rest here.

While we read in this week's Parshat Noah how G-d destroyed the previous world with water, keep in mind that we are told this one will end with fire.

Chodesh tov and Shabbat shalom!

"Jerusalem is under attack"

30 Tishrei 5775
Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan Aleph


Netanyahu: Jerusalem is under attack
Palestinians continue to inflame tensions in east Jerusalem as prime minister orders massive reinforcement in capital after consultation with top security echelon.

...Netanyahu ordered the assembled officials to emphasize Israeli sovereignty over all parts of Jerusalem using massive reinforcements.


We must prepare ourselves for what this portends. Ever since the end of the fighting in Gaza, things have been on a low simmer in Jerusalem, but it would appear as if it will soon boil over and when it does, the international forces will arrive.

Moishela: "...when Simchas Torah is over the real wars will begin."

Terrorism by Auto

It took some time for me to be able to comment on this latest atrocity. Especially since I and/or family members wait at that spot several times a week in that general time frame. This is all I can manage right now...

Baby Chayah Zissel was murdered in her stroller on her way home from her first visit to the place where Hashem chose to place His Name.

The terrorist-murderer died from the gunshots wounds that he received from law officers while trying to escape the scene of his crime.

The Ebola Conspiracy

28 Tishrei 5775

Back in 2009, there was a spring outbreak of swine flu in Mexico. At first, it appeared to be highly contagious and life-threatening; so much so that the Mexican government ordered all public gathering places closed - even churches. After about six weeks during which much fear and panic was stoked, the whole ordeal kind of ebbed away.  

The exact same thing happened in the fall in Ukraine - same bug, same scenario. There was a lot of scare-mongering to push people into getting a 'flu vaccine. Conspiracy theorists speculated widely on the internet, especially given the epidemic of death among the world's microbiologists. To some people it looked like a possible planned release of a pathogen into the population meant to 1) reduce population numbers, 2) to make money from pointless vaccines, and 3) to continue to implement population controls through fear.

As a former healthcare professional, based on what I know of Ebola, I was fully prepared to see at least three quarters of those exposed to Thomas Duncan in Dallas prior to his hospitalization contract the disease. The fact that none of the exposed family members, particularly those who were in close contact caring for him in his illness, including the ambulance crew and the ER staff, acquired the disease. 

While the media had a field day with the folded blanket belonging to Duncan that his daughter left lying on a chair in the ER for several hours and with the ambulance which carried him to the hospital being used for 48 hours after his transport without decontamination, here the incubation period has passed with no reported infections among anyone directly or indirectly exposed at the height of transmissibility. 

It is notable that all of the Americans who have been infected have all survived.

It is also notable that in the list of microbiologists and other scientists who have died under strange circumstances since immediately after 9/11/01, one of the most recent additions is...
Glenn Thomas, AIDS and Ebola expert and spokesperson for the World Health Organization. Ebola expert Glenn Thomas was among the 298 people who were killed when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down and crashed in Ukraine. It is understood he was one of more than 100 researchers who were aboard the flight on their way to an international Aids conference in Australia. Among the other delegates aboard the plane was Joep Lange, a leading AIDS researcher and former president of the International AIDS Society (IAS)....
Oddly, the world health and medical authorities and the main stream media are hyping the Ebola outbreak every bit as much as the so-called alternative (usually anti-establishment) news sources. 

Recently, it was reported that "Patient Zero" contracted the disease in December 2013. We're coming up on almost a year of infection and the numbers are still relatively low and still 99% confined to three West African countries. Nigeria has now been declared Ebola-free.

Obviously, it is not as contagious as initially thought and despite media-hype to the contrary, it is not air-borne. 

It seems to me as if someone wanted a global pandemic and this is not their first attempt. But, as usual, they leave out the God-factor in their calculations. Human beings cannot simply turn a virus lose on humanity. It will only succeed if the Creator of the World wills it to succeed - for His own purposes.

B'ezrat Hashem, we'll yet see this scourge laid to rest.

FLASHPOINT

23 Tishrei 5775

Ever since the most recent war in Gaza ended, Jerusalem has become the flashpoint for violence as Arabs daily attack Jews in the capital of the so-called Jewish State. More and more, the Temple Mount is the scene for confrontation.  The media loves to refer to it as a "tinderbox" just waiting for the spark that sets it all alight. Well, that day is fast approaching and it is this which will provide the excuse for the nations of the world to invade and occupy Israel.

Kerry: Lack of Israel-Palestine peace fueling Mideast extremism

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday drew a line between the need for a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the fight against extremism in the middle east, and urged for the realization of the two-state solution while speaking at a State Department ceremony marking the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

The struggle to reach a peaceful resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, said Kerry, should be viewed within the context of the fight against extremism such as is personified by the Islamic State group.

"As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions about the [anti-Islamic State] coalition [...] there wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation that they felt – and I see a lot of heads nodding – they had to respond to," said Kerry.

"And people need to understand the connection of that... It has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity, and Eid celebrates the opposite of all of that."

...A U.S. official says envoys from the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia will meet in Brussels on October 24 to discuss the latest developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because there has been no official announcement.

BARUCH HASHEM!!

23 Tishrei 5775


Interfaith Prayer at Kosel HaDromi Canceled

Israel Police ... canceled the planned interfaith prayer event scheduled to take place on Hoshana Raba at the Kosel HaDromi R”L. An estimated 500 people were planning to take part in the event near the Shar Chulda to the Old City, an event that was funded by the Ministry of Religious Services.

...The Derech Emunah organization, whose rabbonim were fighting to have the event canceled, praised the decision by police and thanking HKBH for preventing the chilul Hashem. The organization’s rabbonim also released a public message thanking the Chief Rabbis of Israel for their mesirus nefesh in the matter.
