North Korea is preparing to celebrate another major holiday this coming week: Tuesday will be the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, and the North often uses such occasions to show off its military advances.

“Given the North’s recent provocative words and actions and its April 25 People’s Army anniversary, there is concern that the North can attempt a provocation at any time,” South Korea’s acting president, Hwang Kyo-ahn, said Thursday.

What Happened to Nibiru?

24 Nisan 5777
Day 9 of the Omer

I don't know any more than you do about what may or may not be with Nibiru or whether it is even really out there. However, our Tanach tells us that massive earth changes are coming and we see it happening with our own eyes. Whatever HKB"H is using to bring it about is really irrelevant to the event itself.

"...Frustration among the president’s allies has intensified in recent days, with many expressing worry that Bannon, the intellectual pillar of the nationalist movement that catapulted Trump to the presidency, is being pushed out.

As Bannon’s influence wanes, on the rise is a small group of Wall Street-connected advisers whose politically moderate and globalist views are anathema to the populist cause."

Redemption Begins With the First Step Out of Egypt

17 Nisan 5777
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Chol HaMoed Pesach
In every generation it is one's duty to regard himself as though he personally had gone out from Egypt, as it is said, "And you shall tell your son on that day, saying, 'It is because of this that God did for "me" when I went out of Egypt.'" It was not only our fathers whom the Holy One, Blessed is He, redeemed from slavery; we, too, were redeemed with them, as it is said, "He brought us out from there so that He might take us to the land which He had promised to our fathers." (Devarim 6:23) ---The Passover Hagadah
Twenty-one years ago this Shabbat, I arrived with my family on aliyah to the Land of Israel and, by God's grace, have never left even once. For this double blessing, I will be forever grateful to HKB"H!

"GAS" Is At The Heart Of Everything Going On In Syria

16 Nisan 5777
Chol HaMoed Pesach

Of course, a chemical gas attack is being used to seriously undermine Assad's regime. That's because the whole war in Syria is being waged for the sake of protecting Russian hegemony in the supply of gas to Europe!

I wrote about this before in depth here and here.

In short, Russia has had Europe over a barrel for years with its monopoly on their natural gas supply. The only serious competitors can only reach Europe via a pipeline through Syria which Assad won't allow because Russia is his patron and he is bound to do the Kremlin's bidding. And this is why Russia is so deeply involved in defending the Assad regime. Gas sales to Europe is part of the lifeblood of the Russian economy. They are not about to lose it by giving up their influence there.

Ironic (and telling) how prominently the word "gas" is figuring in the news currently. First, there is the repeat use of chemical gas against civilians in the Syrian "civil" war...

Telegraph: America could take military action against Syrian regime in response to chlorine gas attacks, US defence secretary suggests

Chicago TribuneTurkey - Autopsies show sarin gas used in Syria chemical attack

Daily Mail: Russia KNEW about Syrian gas attack in advance - and about a bid to cover it up by bombing hospital treating Assad's victims, say U.S. officials

And then there is recent news about progress in the attempt to bypass Syria and Russia entirely in a bid to supply Europe with natural gas...

Ha'aretz: Europe, Israel Back Longest Undersea Natural Gas Pipeline

Globes: EU delegation visits Israel for gas pipeline talks

Financial Times: Israel signs pipeline deal in push to export gas to Europe

Israel’s Natural Gas Supply Is a Game-Changer
“Russia Cuts Gas, and Europe Shivers,” the New York Times reported on January 6, 2009, after Russia shut off gas exports to Europe due to a pricing dispute with Ukraine. From France to Turkey, nations across Europe went without power — and the incident underscored Russia’s outsized hold on European gas supplies.
Fast-forward nearly a decade later, and Europe is on the verge of relief from an unlikely source: Israel.
While approximately 60 percent of the world’s oil reserves are found in the Middle East, none of them are found Israel. Israel has been striving for decades to reduce its reliance on foreign sources of energy, by developing nuclear and solar technology, among other methods.
Then the game-changer occurred: the discovery of the Tamar and Leviathan natural gas fields off the coast of Haifa in 2009 and 2010. They were among the largest offshore finds in the world.
... Israel’s new gas fields will make the Jewish state a global energy player for the first time in its history, greatly altering its political and economic clout throughout the Middle East and Europe. Steinitz has said that he sees the eastern Mediterranean becoming the new North Sea.
Jordan has already signed a $10 billion deal to import Israeli gas, and Europe is next. Israel, Cyprus, Greece and Italy recently agreed to a $6.4 billion plan to construct the world’s longest underwater pipeline, which would bring Israel’s natural gas into the European market. The deal was supported by the EU’s Climate and Energy Commission, which said that it would help limit reliance on Russian-supplied gas.
This article is from two days ago. Don't expect Russia to sit still for this.

Egypt and Redemption

10 Nisan 5777

"In Nisan we were redeemed and in Nisan we will be redeemed...."

And it seems that once again, we will be redeemed from Egypt. With G-d's help, I will be developing this idea further in the coming days, as time allows.

Meanwhile, take a look at what is happening right under our noses.



Jerusalem's Museum of Tolerance remains a mystery
The Jerusalem Municipality and the Simon Wiesenthal Center are refusing to talk about planning and content of the new museum.

The high fence concealing the site on which the Jerusalem Museum of Tolerance is being built does not really keep passersby from seeing what is going on there. In central Jerusalem, on the site of a Muslim cemetery that is part of Independence Park, stands a huge oddly-shaped and proportioned concrete building. What will it look like? What will happen in it? What does its design mean? What will it contribute to the urban environment? None of this is clear, and it seems that there is a conspiracy of silence about it.

When I tried to ask the Jerusalem municipality spokeswomen about this, I was referred to Jerusalem architect Yigal Levy, who wanted to speak, but instead referred me to the representative of the developer, the Simon Wiesenthal Center. They called me from overseas, made inquiries, got back to me, and said that the financers were suffering from "press trauma," and would not talk.

A perusal of the Simon Wiesenthal Center website shows that it calls itself "a global human rights organization researching the Holocaust and hate in a historic and contemporary context." The organization's main offices are in Los Angeles, but it has branches all over the world.

The organization is headed by Dean Rabbi Marvin Hier. Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, selected Rabbi Hier to recite a prayer at Trump's inauguration. The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, founded by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in 1993, is described as a "human rights laboratory" and educational center for increasing awareness of the Holocaust of the Jewish people and tolerance. According to the museum's website, 250,000 people visit the museum yearly, including 130,000 students.

The Jerusalem museum is portrayed as "a multi-faceted educational institution and social laboratory in the heart of Jerusalem that speaks to the world and confronts today’s important issues - like global anti-Semitism, extremism, hate, human dignity, and responsibility, and promoting unity and respect among Jews and people of all faiths." According to the US website, the building will house experimental museums for children and adults, a center for art seminars, an educational center, and a theater.

...According to the museum's website, the place will be managed by rabbis.

...Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Ofer Berkovitch, a cofounder of the Hitorerut B'Yerushalayim movement, is responsible for economic development, culture, and the city center. He says that he tried to contact the developers several times, but they refused to cooperate. "This is a foundation that is ostensibly very serious. They raise a lot of money, and this is an enormous building. I asked for the plan and the content, and proposed building a museum of Israel music there… They didn't answer me, and that's worrying. It arouses questions and doubts," he complained.

14,000 square meters, six floors above ground, and four floors below ground.

Keep An Eye Out

It might be prudent to get your Pesach shopping done early. 
USA WARNS CLOCK HAS 'RUN OUT' OUT ON NKOREA...
Kim fires missile into sea... 
Furthermore...
...The book "Otzar Midrashim" is a description of the redemption, as Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai heard from an angel while hiding in a cave. In the Midrash, it shows a section that appears to refer to our days: "And it's a sign for you, when you see that an Eastern Nero has fallen, that in Damascus has fallen the Bnei Mizrach kingdom, then will sprout the salvation of Israel, and Mashiach ben David comes and will ascend to Jerusalem."
There was someone who checked and found that "Eastern Nero" in gematria equals "Bashar Assad".  (Source)
ISRAELI OFFICIALS CLAIM ASSAD ORDERED ATTACK, WARN OF SYRIA'S CHEMICAL WEAPONS PLANTS
Tuesday's chemical attack in the Idlib province of Syria is suspected to be the deadliest chemical weapon attack in Syria in years. Israeli officials believe that the attack, which claimed the lives of close to 100 civilians and wounded hundreds more in the town of Khan Sheikhon, was a sarin gas attack order by President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, head of the Institute for National Security Studies think-tank and former head of Military Intelligence, speaking to Army Radio, urged direct military action by Israel to deter the Assad regime from carrying out further chemical weapons attacks, calling the strike in Idlib a “crime against humanity.”
Have everything on hand (and then some) that you are going to need to fulfill the mitzvot. It's best to be prepared for any eventuality.
