This "showdown" with Iran has been coming for such a long time now, it makes you wonder.  But, it's clearer now than it has ever been that Iran is at the center of what will surely become WWIII.
In Face-Off With Iran, Escalation May Depend on Who Prevails Inside Washington and Tehran

The two countries were closer to conflict a decade ago than was publicly apparent at the time. During the Bush and Obama administrations, Israel was repeatedly talked down from attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities. If retaliation followed, that would almost certainly have sucked in American military forces.

US intel: Iranian strike at major Saudi oil target imminent. Another 1,000 US troops for region

The scariest part of this is that a sizable portion of the world is already prepped to believe that Iran is an innocent bystander and every attack attributed to her is a "false-flag" event perpetrated by either Israel or the "Zionist-Occupied Government of America" acting on Israel's behalf.

When (not "if") this war really gets underway, it is going to ignite a firestorm against Jews everywhere.  Complicating it all further will be the hit it will deal to the global economy and the food shortages that are coming as a result of ongoing global weather disasters. We may even see more grid disruptions due to space weather. 

Remember that the whole point of this war is to force humanity to confront the reality of HKB"H's sovereignty - "He will be One and His Name will be One."

Tech Vulnerability Will Cause Havoc

15 Sivan 5779

Is it hacking or is it solar/cosmic ray disruption?  The following events all happened around the same time - June 13 through June 16.
Hunt for cause of massive South America power outage begins

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — As lights turned back on across Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay after a massive blackout that hit tens of millions people, authorities were still largely in the dark about what caused the collapse of the interconnected grid and were tallying the damage from the unforeseen disaster.

Target Checkouts Hit by Outage

Vodafone network down across Europe with hundreds of customers unable to make calls or use the internet

TalkTalk down: Furious customers unable to send emails or connect to internet


Instagram outage: Facebook’s photo sharing service went down for multiple hours

Spotify Outage Not Related to Update

Outage leaves 2,000 in South Bay without power
My internet went off late Friday afternoon, but seemed to be working fine after Shabbat. Around noon yesterday, it went down again for at least two hours.  My service provider could not seem to tell me what was wrong. After several calls and long waits, I got a promise for a technician to come only on Tuesday. Suddenly, it began to work again on its own. I had to try all day today to get them on the phone to cancel the technician. An automated message kept telling me there was no service to the line. 

When I finally got through, I heard the usual greeting and my ID number was requested. After typing it in, I heard "Good-bye." And that was it.

A sudden loss of tech is not only annoying, it makes one acutely aware of how dependent one has become upon it. 

Although cyber attacks are uppermost in many people's minds when something like this happens, it is far more likely that these "outages" are due to a more natural cause. 
A forecast that's really cosmic: Space climate will affect your weather - and your tech

If you're like most people, you care only how weather will affect your clothing or commute.

But far-off weather could put a damper on modern life.

Conditions on the sun, our closest star, have an impact on Earth's climate and technology, such as GPS, electric power transmission, and radio and satellite communications.

Rogue Cosmic Rays From Outer Space Are Causing Havoc With Our Smartphones

Under Earth's protective magnetic field, we don't usually need to worry too much about the health effects of cosmic radiation – although it's something that's known to impact astronauts in space, and even passengers travelling in airplanes.

But the same can't be said for our technological systems – fierce solar storms can wreak havoc on Earth's communication networks, and new research shows that even ordinary levels of cosmic radiation can have a disruptive effect on our personal devices.

"This is a really big problem, but it is mostly invisible to the public," says electrical engineer Bharat Bhuva from Vanderbilt University.
"Mostly invisible to the public" - until now.  And the reason for that is, the influence of cosmic rays is increasing with the grand solar minimum.  We can look for more disruption in the near future.

Why Do Schools Continue to Put Children at Risk?

14 Sivan 5779

The Arab who perpetrated the massacre at the Mercaz HaRav Yeshivah was also an employee and how many more that we don't know about?  It happens over and over again!  
Ben Gvir: Arab Who Abused Seven-Year-Old Deserves Death Penalty

An Arab who kidnapped and abused a seven-year-old Jewish girl from a town in the Binyamin region should be given the death penalty, said Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir, one of the attorneys who will be representing the family of the victim in court.
What I want to know is, what should be the penalty for those who hired the Arab to work in the school where he "befriended" this child!? 

Jewish parents warn your children!!  Do not trust any Arab at all!!!  Do not have conversations with them.  Do not even respond to any overture from them.  Keep as much distance from them as is possible.

We are at war and they are the enemy.  Teach this to your children diligently!!

Our Choices Are Not Without Consequences

13 Sivan 5779

Do you wonder at the plagues that have befallen us in Eretz Yisrael? 

Record numbers of construction accidents resulting in deaths
Record numbers of auto accidents with deaths
Record numbers of fires 
Vandalism and destruction of synagogues and Torah scrolls
So many deaths of children by various means

...And the Lord said to [the recording angel], "Pass through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and you shall mark a sign upon the foreheads of the men who are sighing and moaning over all the abominations that were done in its midst."
And to [the destroying angels], He said in my ears, "Pass through the city after him and smite; let your eye spare not and have no pity. Old man, young man, and maiden, young children and women, you shall slay utterly, but to any man upon whom there is the mark you shall not draw near, and you shall commence from My sanctuary." So they commenced from the old men who were before the House.
... "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land has become full of bloodshed, and the city has become full of perversion, for they said, 'The Lord has forsaken the earth, and the Lord does not see.' I too - My eye will not spare, neither will I have pity; I have placed their way on their head." (Yechezkel 9.4-6, 9-10)

"Jews Refusing Orders"

11 Sivan 5779
Erev Shabbat Kodesh

Parashat Beha'alotcha – Jews refusing orders – Rav Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane

In Parashat Beha'alotcha, we are witness to a unique event: the choosing of leaders.  The Torah even “lets us in” on which factors played a part in how these Jewish leaders were chosen.  In chapter 11 of our Parasha, Moshe Rabbeinu reaches his breaking point - “I can't carry the burden of this people alone, for it is too heavy for me”, and asks G-d to find people who can share the burden of leadership with him.  How does G-d pick these leaders?  After all, there was no shortage of righteous and talented Jews around.  G-d immediately singles out a specific group from which the next Jewish leadership will be chosen:
“Gather to me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people, and officers over them.” 
Rashi explains:  “Those whom you recognize, who were appointed over them as officers in Egypt during the rigorous labor, and they (the officers) had pity on them (the Israelites) and were smitten because of them.”   Though this may appear a rather surprising choice, a deeper probe into the matter will reveal to us a tremendous lesson, so pertinent for today.  Who in the world were these Jewish police officers?  In Shemot Chapter 5, Pharaoh lays down a rather heavy, if not impossible, edict on his Jewish slaves.  They must produce a specific quota of bricks without even being given straw.  The Jewish officers were ordered by the Egyptian taskmasters to oversee that this quota was met.  If not, the officers would be blamed for it and beaten.  Thus, they were in a dilemma.  Either they can turn over their brothers and by doing so save their own skin, or they can refuse orders and be severely punished for it.  In short, these “officers” were supposed to be Jewish “kapos.”  But these policemen, unlike others who have been placed in similar situations in our sad history, refused to bear down on their already suffering brethren, and did not hand over the names of Jews who could not meet the quota.  The result?  The Egyptian taskmasters thrashed the “refusenik” policemen instead of the Jewish slaves: 
“And the officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten...” (Shemot 5:14)
If we think of this seriously, and not relate to it like to some “fairy tale” we heard in kindergarten, we would get goose bumps all over contemplating such heroism.  What can be a more inspiring description of Ahavat Yisrael and caring for a fellow Jew by someone in a position of authority.  Not only didn't they exploit their power, but these officers understood that sometimes they must bear the suffering of their brothers.  This is what G-d saw.  And He did not forget.  The minute there was a need for leadership, He knew whom to turn to.  G-d did not seek out people with charisma, nor did he pick talented organizers or even Torah scholars. One thing: Ahavat Yisrael.

The centrality of this attribute cannot be disputed.  The two greatest leaders in Jewish history, Moshe Rabbeinu and King David, were former shepherds.  The sages teach us that G-d tested them via their ability to care for their flock and show mercy on those they are responsible over.  Here we must stress a key point.  Today, everyone speaks of “Ahavat” Yisrael.  But too often it is merely a slogan.  When selecting the leaders, G-d did not choose those who make nice speeches about “Ahavat Yisrael.”  G-d wanted people with a “previous record”: a record of suffering for one's brothers; a record of placing one's personal welfare secondary to that of one's people.

How sweet it is to read again and again this Midrash about the Jewish policemen.  After all, we are so familiar with the claims of the soldiers and policemen in Israel today: “I'm just a small cog in a big machine.  I'm just following orders.”  But that is not what the Jewish policemen did to their brothers in Egypt.  The policemen saw the illegality and immorality in the cruel Egyptian decree, and refused the order!  It is important to note that mesirut nefesh (self-sacrifice) for the Jewish People is not necessarily the readiness to die for them.  Sometimes it may mean the readiness to be hated for your actions; the willingness to sit in jail for your people; or to be ostracized by the establishment.  Such leadership stands in stark contrast to the self-indulgent politicians of today.  But know that only when such alternative leadership sprouts, Am Yisrael will be redeemed.

Ask yourself who really controls Hamas when they appear to be turned on and off at will.  All quiet for Eurovision, but as soon as election campaigning begins, they start up again.  Ask yourself who benefits from Hamas actions and you'll have your answer to the first question.

There is no limit to the evil acts of the Erev Rav!
