8 Tevet 5780

Hanukkah marks not only the return of the burning lights of the Temple Menorah, adding to the light each of 8 nights, but it also falls at that time of year when the longest night passes and the darkness of winter lessens a bit more each day until spring arrives - the traditional time of Redemption and rebirth.  Just as Hanukkah ended, THIS happened. 

As of the 8th day of Tevet - today - it is exactly 8 weeks until the next scheduled election in Israel, the one that is not supposed to take place because Mashiach will already be here by then.  The Persia/Edom War should happen prior to the revelation of Mashiach for two reasons:

1)  As long as Israel depends on America to save her, she is not ready to accept Mashiach, only when Israel realizes there is no one upon whom to depend but Hashem.

2)  As long as America has power over Israel, Mashiach will never be allowed to rise and rule.

For both of these reasons, America is probably doomed to fall by Iran's hand.  
Rabbi Yitzchak said: (Yalkut Shimoni, Yishayahu 60)

"In the year when the king Moshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world are provoking each other. The king of Paras (Iran) is provoking the Arab king (Saudi Arabia) and then the Arab King will turn to Edom (U.S.A.) for advice.

The king of Paras will then go and destroy the world. And all the nations of the world will shout from terror, fall upon their faces in fear and undergo such horrible pains as strong as labor pains.

And the Jewish people will shout from fear and say, "to where do we turn?! To where do we run?!"

And He (Hashem) will say unto them, My children, do not be afraid; all that I have done here, I have done only for you. What do you fear? The time for your Redemption has arrived!"

One of the major discussions of the geula in Shas in Yoma states Edom will destroy Persia. Incredulously, the Gomorrah asks, but this is not reasonable since Edom destroyed, the Temple, but Cyrus of Persia had given permission to rebuild it. Nevertheless, replies the Gomorrah, and afterwards Edom rules the world for nine months as birth pangs of the Mashiach. Question: given that time frame, are we looking at no government again after March, and a forth round scheduled after which Mashiach comes? בבי"א.

As far as I know, there is a makhloket on which way it goes - Paras vs Edom. The words brought in the name of Rav Kadouri and Rav Abuchatzeira indicated the government would fail to form a coalition twice and that Mashiach would come before the third could be carried out. No fourth.

However, it could be that this war would be the cause to cancel that election scheduled for March 2, which is 8 days before Purim, and that Mashiach could come even at Pesach ("In Nissan you were redeemed and in Nissan you will be redeemed") before the third can be rescheduled and take place.

Missiles hit near US embassy in Iraq, base housing troops after generals slain

...In Baghdad, mortar rounds on Saturday evening hit the Green Zone, the high-security enclave where the US embassy is based, security sources said.

The Iraqi military said that one projectile hit inside the zone, while another landed close to the enclave.

Sirens rang out at the US compound, sources there told AFP.

A pair of Katyusha rockets then hit the Balad airbase north of Baghdad, where American troops are based, security sources and the Iraqi military said.

Security sources there reported blaring sirens and said surveillance drones were sent above the base to locate the source of the rockets.

Analysts on Israel’s Channel 12 news said the strikes were likely a retaliation by Iraqi militias reacting to the death of Muhandis, rather than an Iranian response.

Kataeb Hezbollah, a hardline pro-Iran faction in Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, urged Iraqi troops on Saturday to move away from US forces at military bases.

“We ask security forces in the country to get at least 1,000 meters away from US bases starting on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. (1400 GMT),” said the group.

Iran unveils red flag at Mosque warning of severe battle to come

Iran and US tensions are at an all-time high following the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani by Washington in an airstrike. Global leaders have begun assessing the magnitude of the situation with many holding fears of World War 3 and destabilisation of the Middle East. For the first time in the history of Iran, a red flag was raised over the Holy Dome of Jamkarān Mosque symbolising a severe battle to come. The disturbing war flag reads the words: "Those who want to avenge the blood of Hussein."

Don't put your trust in those filthy ayatollahs. Beezrat Hashem they will fall before Mashiach comes.

Iran is prepared to fight a religious war and risk everything for their theology. In fact, the Iranian government is led by psychos who believe the "end times" can and in fact SHOULD be forced to bring what they call the "Mahdi" ie the "hidden Imam". This is very real, and President Esau has no idea what he just started. The Iranians are ready and willing to literally blow up the world to force their eschatology. Uncle Samkiel is simply not conceptually prepared to fight a religious war and lacks even the basic concept of confronting this kind of enemy.

This scenario eerily comports with the Yalkut Shimoni mentioned in the article.

Yes. Edom (Caesaria) and Israel (Jerusalem) cannot stand at the same time (TB Megillah). Plus, as long as we rely on Edom (U. S., Europe, Christians, etc.), we give them merit, making it impossible for them to fall without Divine intervention (sorry, don't have the sources on hand). Giving them merit includes taking money and other donations from them.
