Fighting Fire With Fire

19 Iyyar 5779
Day 34 of the Omer

Every year, we get one or two extra severe bouts of heat wave.  And every year when that happens, fires break out all over the country.  And every time, it later turns out that Arabs set the fires, taking advantage of the circumstances.

The authorities are admitting the Arabs set the fires in the south of the country yesterday.  They can't cover that up.
Firefighters bring 11 fires lit by Hamas balloons under control

At least 11 fires blazed in Eshkol and Sdot Negev regions on Wednesday from incendiary balloons tossed over from the Gaza Strip. One consumed a 12-acre wheat field belonging to Kibbutz Alumim. By nightfall, the firefighters had brought them all under control. Because of the exceptionally dry, hot and windy weather Israel’s fire and rescue services had issued a fire warning across the country and banned the customary Lag Be’Omer bonfires.in many places.
There is not a doubt in my mind that it will turn out that they are also responsible for the fires burning in the center of the country, too.

...The red-level alert was raised and a full mobilization of firefighters have been scrambled throughout the entire country. There have been requests for volunteer firefighters and for assistance from neighboring countries for firefighting planes.

...Today's events began when a large fire broke out near Beit Hagai, in the southern Hebron Hills in the West Bank on Thursday. The first line of houses have been evacuated in the settlement. There are currently reports of at least 15 people being treated for smoke inhalation.

...In a related development, Israel police blocked route 443 and evacuated communities around the Ben Shemen forest Thursday as fires of undetermined origin raged through the area.

Route 1, the major artery connecting Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, was a snarled traffic jam near the area in the afternoon as the sun began to descend toward the horizon.

On the skyline, brown and black smoke billowed from the Ben Shemen forest. Usually a picnic area, the place was turned into a looming inferno as a fire spread during the hottest day of the spring so far.

...Deri Semachi briefed reporters there on the situation. He said that investigations were still underway to determine the cause of the fires.
And in a related story... "Arson has not been ruled out, according to the Police."

On the very day when Jews traditionally burn bonfires in celebration of Lag La'Omer, it seems the Arabs didn't want to be left out. I hope this is not going to become a new tradition for Ramadan.

HKB"H knows and He will avenge any wrong done to His Land and People.

It's 1984 in 2019

18 Iyyar 5779
Day 33 of the Omer
In George Orwell's novel 1984, the government is made up of four ministries. They are: the Ministry of Truth, the Ministry of Peace, the Ministry of Plenty, and the Ministry of Love.
The Ministry of Truth (Minitrue) is concerned with creating propaganda, controlling the media, manipulating historical documents, and producing Newspeak dictionaries. It supplies the citizens with various forms of media, which support Big Brother and the Party's agenda. (Source)
A lot of people like to draw parallels between the novel 1984 and the present day.  Here is proof they may be right.  Internal memo to staff from the editor of The Guardian.....

Upside-Down World

17 Iyyar 5779
Day 32 of the Omer

I can't help thinking what an upside-down world we are living in.  This ER government (either Erev Rav or Evil Regime, they're the same thing) would have us believe that the US and Saudi Arabia are our best friends and Iran is our worst enemy.  But, in the World of Truth, what the US and Saudi Arabia are planning for us would lead to our utter destruction if they had their way (which HKB"H will not allow), making them our worst enemy.  And you can mark my words, in the end, we are going to see that what Iran is doing will eventually lead to our great salvation and the building of the Third Beit HaMikdash, because they are the tool HKB"H is using to thwart the US and Saudi Arabia.

THIS picture is our worst case scenario...

The union of Eisav and Yishmael brought about by the Erev Rav.
The purpose in our bringing about the ingathering of the exiles is to set up faithful people for the sake of the unification of the two moshiachs (i.e., Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid) in the gates of Jerusalem. This is in order to return the Divine Presence to bring about the redemption, the true redemption and sanctification of God's Name. According to our teacher, the Vilna Gaon, z"l, we can bring about, with the help of God and through these strong people, these two moshiachs, and to learn well all the levels and their purposes in practical terms. The general purpose of the two moshiachs, Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid, throughout all the generations has been to protect and fight against the three 'heads' of the K'lipos, Eisav, Yishmael, and the Erev Rav. The specific role of Moshiach Ben Yosef is against Eisav who is the k'lipah of the left, the main purpose of Moshiach Ben Dovid is against Yishmael, the k'lipah of the right, and together they go against Eisav and Yishmael who are the ox and the donkey from the side of impurity. The joining of Eisav and Yishmael is the result of Armelius, the sar of the Erev Rav, who are able to destroy Israel and the entire world, may God have mercy. The main drive of the Erev Rav is to unify Eisav and Yishmael and to separate the two moshiachs. Therefore, our main service and battle is to break and to remove the strength of the Erev Rav, the k'lipah of Armelius the Evil, from Israel; the Erev Rav is our greatest enemy, the one who separates the two moshiachs. The k'lipah of the Erev Rav works only through deception and roundabout ways. Therefore, the war against the Erev Rav is the most difficult and bitterest of all. We must strengthen ourselves for this war, and anyone who does not participate in the battle against the Erev Rav becomes, de facto, a partner with the k'lipah of the Erev Rav, and was better off not being born in the first place. (Kol HaTor, Chapter 2, Section 2, Letter 'bais')
Everything that we see on the ground and everything that is being reported (also here) about the "Deal of the Century" tells us that Eisav, at the instigation of the Erev Rav, is determined to prevent Yisrael from fulfilling his God-given mission in the world by turning us into an Eisav clone, thereby doing what every enemy in the past has failed to do - destroy Yisrael.

But, that's only possible in a world of illusion (and delusion) - in the Upside-Down World.  In the World of Truth, Eisav has no power over us.  In the World of Truth, Eisav has already fallen and Yisrael is victorious.

Herzl Got Something Right

15 Iyyar 5779
Day 30 of the Omer

Sometimes when I see this sign at the entrance to my community, I feel like I have to pinch myself to be sure I'm not dreaming.  I tell myself, "Think about where you are, by the grace of HKB"H."  It's so easy to take it all for granted.

Theodore Herzl famously said: "If you will it, it is no dream; and if you don't, a dream it is and a dream it will stay."  On this point, he was 100% right.  But, remember this.  It all begins with the dream.

The War Belongs to Hashem

Interesting how everyone is suddenly so reluctant to go to war...
Trump: I don’t want to fight but we can’t let Iran have nuclear weapons

Saudi Arabia, Iran Revolutionary Guards chief say not seeking war

On Tuesday, Iran’s Ayatollah, Seyed Ali Khamenei, said that any confrontation between the US and Iran would not be “a military one,” and that “there was not going to be any war.”

US President Donald Trump has expressed a similar sentiment recently when he told his acting defense secretary, Patrick Shanahan, he does not want to go to war with Iran, the New York Times reported on Thursday, citing unidentified administration officials.  (Source)
I sort of believe them. Look how long they have been dragging this confrontation out. Back in 2006, Debka was reporting war in six weeks. And it goes back even before that. But...
.יְהֹוָ֖ה אִ֣ישׁ מִלְחָמָ֑ה יְהֹוָ֖ה שְׁמֽוֹ

Shemot 15:3 - Hashem is Master of war; Hashem is His Name.
When Hashem decides there will be war, there will be a war.

Another Good Sign

14 Iyyar 5779
Day 29 of the Omer
Pesach Sheni 

In addition to Netanyahu's failure to form a government possibly being a sign that the Erev Rav regime is losing it's power to rule, the shakiness of the Jordanian king's rule is also a sign that the Third Messianic War can't be far off.

...West Bank Palestinians who visited Jordan in the past few weeks said that the kingdom was awash with rumors and conspiracy theories amid increased calls for economic and political reforms and leaks concerning the peace plan.

“The situation in Amman is very tense,” said a businessman from Ramallah who visits Jordan regularly. “The economic situation is very bad, and many people complain that the Syrian refugees are taking their jobs. In addition, there’s talk about several senior political and security officials who may be involved in attempts to undermine the monarchy.”

A Palestinian Authority official who returned from Amman last week said that Jordanian officials told him that Abdullah was “upset” with the Trump administration and some Arab states. “The king feels that he’s been left alone to face serious challenges from home and abroad,” the PA official said. “He’s afraid that Trump’s plan will aggravate tensions inside the kingdom and drive a wedge between Jordan and other Arabs.”

Summing up Jordan’s predicament, a veteran political analyst in Amman said that the kingdom was facing “existential challenges” as a result of the peace plan. The king’s efforts, he said, “should be focused on preserving Jordan’s survival, independence and stability, while also pushing for badly needed economic and political reforms.”
