In 2005, I opened a blog called "Jewish Jihad". It was my way of fighting the Erev Rav. The battle is still going on, mostly because so few people know it exists and so they have yet to join up and begin to fight. In the coming days, IY"H, I will be bringing highlights from the former "Jewish Jihad". Here is the first installment.

Who Is the Enemy?
Yishmael, Eisav and the 'Erev Rav'
While it is true that we have a commandment to drive out the indigenous non-Jews who contest our right to inhabit and rule the Land of Israel, most of whom are Yishmaelim, we are also at war with Eisav who embodies the shallow, empty, even corrosive values of the democratic West. While we will touch on both of these battle fronts over the course of these discussions, for the present I would like to focus on the one our Master Teacher the GR"A called "the most difficult and most bitter"---the Erev Rav.
Who Are They?
Briefly, the 'Erev Rav' are the souls of the mixed multitude (Shemot 12:38) who came up out of Egypt with us. They were a corrupting influence sent by Pharoah to act as a fifth column to destroy Bnei Yisrael from within. And so they and their descendants have been down through time for 35 centuries.
Quoting from Modern Erev Rav:
"In his book EVEN SHELOMO, the Vilna Gaon, zt"l wrote that the selection and purification of Israel will not be complete until the Erev Rav separates from Israel completely, because they (Erev Rav) are very attached to the Jews and the Jews learn from their actions. In the Tikkune Zohar (97a) it is written: "All the exile and the destruction of the Beit ha Mikdash and all the suffering, all of it came through Moshe's acceptance of the Erev Rav, and all wicked people and evildoers in each generation come from them, meaning from their souls, for they are reincarnations of those who left Egypt and this is what the Gemara (Beitza 32) refers to: 'They come from the Erev Rav'. "
Why Are They So Dangerous?
"The main drive of the Erev Rav is to unify Eisav and Yishmael and to separate the two Mashiachs. Therefore, our main service and battle is to break the strength of the Erev Rav, the k'lipah of Armelius the Evil, from Israel; the Erev Rav is our greatest enemy, the ones who separates the two Mashiachs."
"The general role of two Messiahs, the messiah son of Yosef and the messiah son of Dovid, throughout the generations is one of defense and war against the three leading husks - Eisav, Yishmael and Erev Rav... The Erev Rav is our greatest foe, he is what separates the two Messiahs. The Erev Rav husk operates only by deceit and indirectly. Therefore the war against the Erev Rav is the most difficult and most bitter, and we must use all our remaining forces to win this war.
Whoever is not engaged in actively fighting the Erev Rav becomes an automatic partner to the husk of the Erev Rav, and whoever this may be it would be better for him had he not been created. "
