NOT "Chelm"

18 Adar II 5771

The people of Chelm are fools. What the government, the courts and the police in Israel are complicit in is criminal.

The bomb blast in central Jerusalem was the work of terrorist pros

...DEBKAfile's counter-terror sources report that the [Jerusalem] attack was professionally executed by a team of three to five with local aid from East Jerusalem Palestinians. While the authorities have reassured the city that it was a one-off attack, intelligence and terror experts are certain a terrorist organization activated trained bombers and may do so again.

The 1-2 kilogram device planted in a suitcase was detonated at one of the busiest corners of Jerusalem, where taxis wait to pick up out-of-town arrivals and two buses take on passengers. The site of attack must have been picked in advance, with the bomber waiting in a getaway car nearby to detonate the device as one of the buses was pulling away and drive off to Arab Jerusalem or the West Bank before the police arrived. This method is familiar from the 2003-2006 Palestinian war of terror. The police initially set up road blocks on the highway to Tel Aviv before realizing too late that the bombers had headed east.

LEARN THE LESSONS!!!!

Bamidbar, Perek 33: "Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their temples, destroy their molten idols, and demolish their high places. You shall clear out the Land and settle in it, for I have given you the Land to occupy it.
... But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle. And it will be that what I had intended to do to them, I will do to you. [i.e., drive us out of the Land.]


Shmuel I 15.17-23: "...Though you are small in your own eyes, you are the head of the tribes of Israel; and Hashem has anointed you to be king over Israel. Hashem sent you on the way, and He said, 'Go and destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and wage war with them until you have exterminated them.' Why did you not obey the voice of Hashem? You rushed to the loot, and you did what was evil in the eyes of Hashem."

Shaul said to Shmuel, "But I heeded the voice of Hashem and I walked the path on which Hashem sent me! I brought Agag, king of Amalek, and I destroyed Amalek! The people took the sheep and the cattle from the loot, the best of what was to be destroyed, in order to bring offerings to Hashem, your God, in Gilgal."

[Note that Shaul HaMelech had convinced himself that his 'improvements' on Hashem's direct orders were good and right, but Heaven did not see it that way. In fact, Heaven viewed it as much worse. From Heaven's perspective, the decision to preserve Agag and a few of the animals in order to 'honor' Hashem with sacrifices was tantamount to rebellion; equated with sorcery and idolatry, capital offenses deserving of the death penalty.]

Shmuel said, "Does Hashem take delight in elevation-offerings and feast-offerings as in obedience to the voice of Hashem? Behold! - obedience is better than a choice offering, attentiveness than the fat of rams. For rebelliousness is like the sin of sorcery, and verbosity is like the iniquity of idolatry; because you have rejected the word of God, He has rejected you as king!"

"But," you'll say. "What can we do? The government is against us."

For now, it is. But hear me well. The day is fast coming when there will be a new government in Eretz Israel - a Torah government led by Mashiach Tzidkeinu - and you have to be prepared to follow his orders. Use this time now to be convinced in your own mind and to convince others what is the correct course of action; what Hashem demands from us.

Today is the war for hearts and minds. Hashem is using these tragedies to prepare our hearts and minds for Tomorrow; for the Final War over the Land of Israel.

Use today to prepare well for tomorrow.

Xianity (the West) says "love your enemies" (and yet they go to war faster than anyone), while Judaism says "hate your enemies" because they are Hashem's enemies and He commands us to wipe them out. It is not an act of mercy and compassion to allow murderers free reign. It is a perversion and corruption of mercy and compassion which shows none at all to the victims!

You can not go from loving those who butcher infants in their sleep one day to slaughtering them in a war the next. Minds and hearts must be prepared in advance to execute justice and righteousness in the Land. Mashiach will declare a milchemet mitzvah (what you thought he was going to do it all by magic?) and every citizen is obligated in a milchemet mitzvah!

Keep the images of the massacred Fogel Family before you and nurture the will to do justice with their murderers, even if it is only to wish for the authorities to capture and punish them.

This would be a good time to go and review this post from 2008:

And Meanwhile, the War Continues...

David Melech chai v'kayam!
