World War Three Broke Out
(See original for highlighted sources)

The Arab Attacks

Q. The Arabs are claiming that they are making all the riots and murders because of the Jews going onto Har-Habayit...

A. That's nonsense, and they know it's nonsense, but the truth is, perhaps they're right from a spiritual perspective. Because it's not worthwhile to go up there, at all. It's forbidden for us. Even if you stand on the side - it's not necessary. But, that won't stop the Arabs. That's not the reason. There's an organization from the evildoers who are working here like they're doing in every single country. They are indeed weakening every place like this, making confrontations of Arabs against Arabs. So, here they're doing Arabs-against-Jews, or chareidim-against-chilonim, that's their way. So, this issue - it's for no reason, just so that there will be 'cause for celebration'. And this is just the beginning of the plan to weaken us. To our great sorrow, it's coming at the expense of good citizens, good Jews, and unfortunate soldiers. And those who sit in the government - a serious part of them belong to the evildoers.

Q. So, actually it's all a game. On the one hand, they're bringing Jews who are going up on the Temple Mount. On the other hand, they are provoking the Arabs who get angry about it, this way they instigate the riots.

A. Exactly, exactly.

Q. And in the government they're taking counsel on what to do, going into meetings, doing discussions...

A. They sit in discussions, because they know what they need to do, but they don't want other people to know what they're going to do...

Q. What do you mean?

A. They have a plan, for the Jews in the government. They will be here, you will see that foreign soldiers will be here! They will invite them, or they won't have a choice, or it'll be 'like' they have no choice...

Q. You say that, but do the people know anything about this?

A. The people know, because they need to know, because it's written in very many places. For example in the US, very many people know it, and there are those among the gentiles who will fight against the evildoers, but not enough. Not enough people are ready to fight. There is a lot-a lot of stupidity and ignorance among the gentiles as well as among the Jews. It's simply amazing. It's spiritual and also physical stupidity.

Q. In this matter that they're saying everything is the fault of 'Har Habayit', indeed after this the Arabs will say that they're angry because of another reason...

A. Good, okay, that's the situation. And the Jews don't have anything to do there on the Temple Mount, and even if they're standing on the side, it's not worthwhile even to do that. And if they were really afraid, and were really believers, were trembling - trembling just from the thought of going up to such a holy place, when we are so low. But each one feels himself 'Moishe Grois'. And that's a big problem. But no matter, it's the war that the evildoers are starting and promoting. They're taking groups of Arabs, not the most intelligent, young, and driving their minds crazy, making them brainwashed, and they're ready to take a knife and go, and they know that with this they are finishing their lives this way or that they will sit in prison, but they don't care because they're doing it for all kinds of rewards in their world-to-come...  But, I just don't know why their women are doing it...

That's the whole plan. It's not a problem to take these Arabs and turn them around, and drive their minds crazy, and direct them against the Jews. No problem at all. Like in Russia it's also not a problem to give the Cossacks a bit of Vodka and direct them towards the Jews. And how many - how many they slaughtered, with their swords they murdered whole cities. And the Poles, eh... And the whole world's this way.

Q. In actuality, do we need to be afraid to go out of the house or disregard the concerns?

A. It depends on the person. A person who is hysterical and trembling from fear - I would not say for them to go out. Whoever trusts in Hashem - knows that whatever He does is for our good, so he does what he needs to do. I'm not saying to go wander around for no reason and have a good time, but to do what you need to do. Again, I can't promise to anyone that he will return home in peace. I, with God's help, can bless. But, if you're going to do something that you have to do, then this is enough reason to be there. Enough of wandering around and wandering around just for the sake of stupid entertainment.

A good presentation of the information.

"Nations Provoking One Another"

17 Marcheshvan 5776

We're definitely in that time period the Yalkut Shimoni discusses.  We're talking the US, Russia and China! And a bit of Iran (Para) for spice.

Iran to send ‘fleet of warships’ to the Atlantic Ocean

Iran intends to dispatch “a fleet of warships” to the Atlantic Ocean shortly, the semi-state Fars news agency reported Thursday, quoting the regime’s navy chief.

Three Chinese Warships To Dock In Florida Port

At a time when the US and China are practically at arms over the artificial islands in the South China Seas, with the US sending warships on location to patrol (despite White House Spokesman Josh Earnest saying on Oct. 8 that U.S. warships "should not provoke significant reaction from the Chinese") and a stunned China responding "What On Earth Makes Them Think We Will Tolerate This", the last thing we thought we would see right now was three Chinese warships about to port in Florida's Naval Station Mayport.

And yet according to USNI that is precisely what is about to happen: citing US Navy officials, USNI reports that he three ships about to dock in the US are the Type 052C Luyang II-class guided-missile destroyer Jinan (152), the Type 054A Jiangkai II-class guided-missile frigate Yiyang (548) and the Type 903 Fuchi-class fleet oiler Qiandao Hu (886).

Russian aircraft approach USS Ronald Reagan, prompting US fighter jet scramble

The USS Ronald Reagan scrambled its fighter jets earlier this week after two Russian naval reconnaissance aircraft flew within one nautical mile of the U.S. aircraft carrier as it sailed in international waters east of the Korean Peninsula, according to 7th Fleet officials.

In the latest in a series of incidents involving Russian aircraft, two Tupolev Tu-142 Bear aircraft flew as low as 500 feet Tuesday morning near the Reagan, which has been conducting scheduled maneuvers with South Korean navy ships. Four F/A-18 Super Hornets took off from the Reagan’s flight deck in response to the Russian advance, 7th Fleet spokeswoman Lt. Lauren Cole said Thursday.

U.S., China Posture for Support in Their Maritime Standoff

...The U.S. is urging allies and partners to conduct their own “freedom-of-navigation” patrols in the South China Sea, possibly including some like the U.S.’s on Tuesday, which was within 12 nautical miles of the artificial island on Subi Reef, according to U.S. officials.

“We are encouraging other nations to exercise their rights under international law, similar to the way we exercised our rights,” said one senior U.S. military official.

"Chief Rabbis Vindicated..."

16 Marcheshvan 5776

Make no mistake. Nothing has really changed. These are the same old Xians we've always known. In fact, the ones who attach themselves to Israel are the worst of the lot!
Chief Rabbis Vindicated for Asking Jews to Avoid ICEJ’s 2015 Jesus Worship Feast
"Suddenly, the music swelled again as the worship team led the gathering in a contemporary version of a very ancient creed: 'We believe in the crucifixion; we believe in the virgin birth; we believe in the resurrection, and that He is coming back to earth!'… the worship team kept singing: 'Make me a house of prayer.' These were the same words that Jesus cried out upon his final, triumphant entry to Jerusalem: 'For my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations,' (Isaiah 56:7)."

- Charisma Magazine's report on the opening event of the 2015 ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles: One Simple Declaration: 'We Believe'
"As a nation, Israel remains in rebellion against Jesus of Nazareth and this factor has more to do with her present struggle than we are prepared to admit! (Matt23:37-39) (Luke19:41-44) Jesus is a Jewish Messiah and the only way of salvation. (Acts4:11-12)"
- Malcolm Hedding, ICEJ Executive Director Emeritus, Position Statements – ICEJ's Core Beliefs
As in past years, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) held its annual Feast of the Tabernacles in Jerusalem. The large evangelical worship event was hosted at the Pais Arena in Jerusalem from September 27 through October 2nd. The Arena has become a popular venue for international Christian gatherings.
The religious nature and agenda of ICEJ's Feast is frequently dismissed or reinterpreted by Israeli government officials and the press, and therefore misunderstood by the Israeli public. The result is that many Israeli Jews are perplexed as to why the Chief Rabbinate needs to issue warnings with regards to participation in Christian prayer, and the heavy missionary presence at what is perceived to be a large tourist event for lovers of Israel.

...Contrary to press reports, the 6-day ICEJ Feast is not a "pro-Israel summit". It is clearly a christ-centered worship event. And unless Judaism's vision is to have jesus sitting on King David's throne on the Temple Mount, surrounded by humanity bowing down and worshipping him, ICEJ's Feast is far from being a fulfilment of the end of days prophecy as described in Zechariah 14- 16.

I urge everyone to read Jewish Israel's complete report in full here. In a related matter, thanks to Algemeiner, we have a list of the Jewish organizations who sold their souls yet again this year to John Hagee Ministries...
Organizations receiving support from Hagee Ministries included Afikim Family Enrichment Association, American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, Bikur V’Ezras Cholim, Friends of the IDF, Galilee Medical Center, Heart of Benjamin, Herzl Institute, Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio, International Council of Young Israel, Israel Help and Education Center at Kiryat Gat, Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum, Jewish Agency for Israel, Just One Life, Koby Mandell Foundation, Laniado Hospital, Magen David Adom, Meir Panim, Nefesh B’Nefesh, Netanya Academic College, Ohr Torah Stone, Or L’Doron, Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center, and Women’s International Zionist Organization.

Moishela: "The Jewish Neshoma Will Never Perish"

16 Marcheshvan 5776


Discussion with Moishela (with his family)
A Handicapped child
3 Cheshvan 5776 (Oct. 16, ‘15)

The Jewish Neshoma Will Never Perish

This week IY”H will be a turning point. I can’t explain it but when it comes you will see that it’s going to be a turning point. I think I can even say that after that turning point, life will be very different for the whole world. People will be frightened even though they may not physically feel the effects of it right away, but many will feel the effects right away. There will still be room for the lie that everything will be all right. The lie that life will go on as usual will still be able to creep into our way of thinking. But as time goes on everyone will realize more and more that it is a totally different world, a very dangerous world. It’s true that the Third World War has already begun, however we still don’t see the total breakdown of civilization. We did begin to see it here in Eretz Yisroel. The Europeans are seeing it with all the refugees coming in. Also they see it in United States of America, but all over the world it will become much more evident. It will become more dangerous in every corner of the world.

I beg Am Yisroel to Daven. Men should be very scrupulous putting on Tefillin every day. Davening three times a day with a Minyan Shacharis, Mincha, and Maariv. All men should be careful to wear Tzitzis and to learn Torah. I suppose it sounds funny to say this to Frum people but unfortunately many so-called Frum men have forgotten these basic things and have become very lax with these Mitzvos. Most Jewish women have become very lax in their Tznius and therefore I beg you, change your ways. It will be to the benefit of yourself, your families, and all of Am Yisroel. It will be a protection against the coming total breakdown of the world, Hashem should help us. I beg all Am Yisroel come back to Hashem whether you think you are close to Him or you know that you are far from Him. Those that are close to Hashem, work hard to get closer and those that are far from Hashem had better get back to the Truth.

The only way we can survive this next time period before Moshiach comes and brings us to Olam Habah is not by our own physical power but only by becoming close to Hashem. We won’t have to fight physically. We won’t have to lift a finger in that direction. We won’t need Tzahal or the Yassam police (a riot and crowd control unit) to protect us. We won’t need the American soldiers to protect us. We won’t need NATO or the UN to protect us. They won’t be around anyway. The only protection we need is from Hakodosh Baruch Hu.

Am Yisroel please I beg you do something. Go in the right direction. Come back to your Creator to the Hakol Yachol and let us all be Zoche to greet Moshiach Tzidkainu in the near future, Be’ezras Hashem!

Q: Does the burning of Kever Yosef Hatzaddik Erev Shabbos Parshas Noach have to do with Moshiach Ben Yosef?

A: Not directly but it has to do with the Geula. The Reshoim are trying to destroy Am Yisroel. It’s one of their main goals, and for centuries is has been their goal. Now they think that they can fulfil it. Yosef Hatzaddik is one of the greatest examples ever of a Jew that gave his whole life to be with Hashem, to be a Tzaddik and not go against Hashem in any way. That’s what the Goyim want to destroy, because if they destroy that ability and desire in every Jew to go in the way of Hashem, to come closer to Hashem and to do His will then Chas Vesholom they will win. They can’t win because every Jew is born with the ability to achieve eternity, meaning that no man can destroy him if he keeps the Torah and recognizes Hashem as the Hakol Yachol the Creator of the world and tries to live according to this. Then no human being can destroy him.

All those Neshomas that were at Har Sinai and said Na’aseh Venishma will survive and achieve Netzach - eternity. That eternal gene is part of every true Jew’s makeup. No one can take it away from him and no human being can destroy him, even if he is, Chas Vesholom, killed by a Nazi or by an Arab, even if his body is thrown into the sea or burnt by anti-Semites. This Neshoma with its inborn eternity will never perish. This Neshoma will be reborn with a new body and continue to praise Hashem and His Torah, continue to go higher and higher closer and closer to the Truth forever.

Binyamin: "World War Three Broke Out"

Yerushalayim, Yom Shlishi, Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan

World War Three Broke Out
(See original for highlighted sources)

I very much want to speak. I'm very afraid, very afraid. Actually, it's possible to say clearly that the Third World War already started. And it's not just me the poor autistic saying it, there are a lot of wise and great people, among the Jews as well as the gentiles, who already know that 'this is it'. We're at the end. Indeed, we haven't seen more large cities disappearing, Baruch Hashem, but we know now that it very much could be.

And we're seeing enormous changes in the world, but with all that there is - there are still those who say: 'But, nothing has happened!' Except it has. Just look for yourselves how our world has changed.

Ever since we were little children we learned about  Europe. Europe is the 'Aryan race'. The majority are light-skinned, blondes with blue eyes, etc. There are all kinds of countries in Europe, there's England, which is a little bit not exactly Europe, but almost, and there's Holland, and Germany, and Austria, etc., etc. and there, in those places, it's a certain kind of people. In Spain - it's another type. In Arab countries, it's a different type, in the US, there's 'all kinds', but mainly they are whites, whites with blue eyes, blondes, which the majority came from Europe in order to look for democracy, the freedom to be Protestants or Jews or something else.

And how does it look now in all these places? In Europe, it's full of Arabs. There's almost no European-born. And if they remain, all the hundreds of thousands that there are in Europe, more than a million probably, and already there are from them already a few million, if it continues like this, so the dark-brown and the beige will stick out, it will be the majority, and Islam will rule. And now it's just a big mess there, there's nowhere to put them, little children with their mothers, but the majority are men who are making big problems, thieving, and doing all kinds of not good deeds. But, in Germany perhaps they found a place for them...  Concentration camps where they used to kill Jews, and now it's their houses, so the world really looks 'wonderful'.

In the US, the same thing. The president has let in 'tons and tons' of Arabs. And of course there are among them, and among those who came to Europe, there are a lot who are from Da"esh (ISIS). And aside from this there are a lot of Africans who are running away from their homes, and Mexicans, and they're letting them just stream into the US, without a green card, without asking who or what they are. A serious part of them are really criminals, murderers, and they're not checking, they don't care. But, if an Israeli goes there, then already they will make him problems. He needs a green card, he needs a job, and to buy a house, etc., etc. That's how our world looks.

But, now the Russians are in Syria, and not for no reason, 100,000! One hundred thousand, approximately one hundred thousand soldiers with all the weapons we only dream about. Next to Syria, Russia has a lot of warships from which they can launch the most advanced missiles. And in addition to that they have more help: - China. The Chinese, if they want to conquer the Middle East - they only need to bring a quarter of the Chinese, they will stand next to each other, and they will fill the whole area... But, they also arrived with warships, and they're also fighting. And that says that Putin is taking over Syria with the help of the Chinese and the Iranians. And now, in Russia they are also drafting soldiers from the reserves, and now they're also in Iraq! The Jews here in Israel are very worried, because it's not a problem for them to fly 'a smidgen' within Eretz Yisrael, perhaps simply to come and take over. It could very well be.

The plan is simply to take over the Middle East, which is already weak, it's been weakened from all the wars that the evildoers planned and implemented, 'Arab against Arab'. And what's with this tiny country? All the troubles that we're having today, and yesterday, and before that, and all that's going to be for us here, it's still small compared with what's going to be. And if you think that life will return to something like it was before - I don't think so. These evildoers already started the wars and they won't stop now. They have the taste of success, the taste of war and victory. They have the taste in their mouth of the blood and sweat that a person has when they're fighting. And they won't stop. Won't stop. After they finish off all these Arabs, they want to sit here, to expand the boundaries here, and to make Eretz Yisrael into their center, and also to build a Temple of avodah zarah, Hashem yishmor, and 'home'. That's their plan, but they won't succeed, with God's help. But until they will understand and until we will understand that they're not succeeding - there will in any case be enough Jews who will try to return to themselves their lives as they once were, so they can continue their materialism.

My brothers, listen! This won't be. The world is going to collapse also materially, spiritually - it already fell. And also, we are standing before the most frightening wars, with a lot of destruction in the world. With God's help, in Eretz Yisrael it won't be so severe like in the the world, but it will be hard. Most people will think it will be better to flee abroad, but they don't understand and they don't want to understand that in chu"l, it will be a lot harder for them. In chutz la'aretz -  the evildoers hate the Jews, even though outwardly they behave differently, usually. There will be a lot more antisemitism, a lot of chaos. A lot of the lowest people, the trash, when they will begin to quarrel with each other, they will catch the Jews as victims. But it's impossible to speak with them, because they don't want to know. Usually their lives are comfortable, so they don't want to know. But I request from everyone, explain to them, right, now it's hard here in Eretz Yisrael, but it's not at all possible to compare to what will be there, not allowed to compare.

Now, I more or less gave you the picture. It won't be quiet, it can't be quiet anymore. Putin already took a step that he can't come back from. And in a little bit the money will begin to go down severely in its worth, and it will be in all the currencies, all over the world. And everyone will worry just to eat, that there will be what to eat, for the children, to live day to day. And the rich, except for the evildoers among them, will lose most of their money. These - eighty-five families who control all the money in the world - they will decide who gets and who doesn't.

And now, dear Jews, real Jews, what do you say?... Don't you see what's happening?!... Don't you see that the world is at its end, at the end of its path?!... That the world, in the situation of the sin of Adam HaRishon, and the Satan, the yetzer hara who is the Satan, he's the ruler now of this world?! Don't you feel it?!... Don't you feel that there is some danger for innocent children, they're in some danger from the Satan, from all the-world-of-filth, from the lack of holiness, like it used to be, like the Generation of the Flood, like Sedom - Amorrah. We have a lot of examples of "how it used to be", but we were sure that we were already past this, but everyone understands that this is it, we're not beyond it, it's really what it is.

Am Yisrael, come home, come home. Those who are here in Israel, don't leave, don't become confused. It's just the yetzer hara, he who wants to confuse you. Sit and learn the prophecies, sit and learn it. It's all precise. Exactly accurate. Don't leave. And return to HKB"H.

Men and youth, married people and unmarried, don't forget to pray three times a day, very-very much make efforts to pray in a minyan, even though it's hard, and even if you have to get up very early in the morning, it's very important. To come close to HKB"H. First of all - in prayer, and afterwards in learning.

And the women, whoever can, synagogue - it's very nice. Don't have to. Women who are mothers with little children - it's enough to speak with HKB"H. Talk to Him. Make a connection with Him, so that you feel Him. And then He will save you all and also your children. And all of us together, separately as well as together, need to cry out to Hashem: 'Save us, save us, Father in Heaven, save us!' And He will save us. Don't be afraid, even though it's hard, and even though there is a lot of danger, and even though there are among us those who are leaving this world at the last minute, don't worry about them, they're in a good place. It's easier for them than it is for us. If they're not ba'alei-aveirot, who knows what - then it's easier for them there than it is for us here. Easier for them. But, I prefer here and to receive Mashiach Tzidkeinu. And I believe that also all of you, the same thing.

So, make a connection with our Father in Heaven. Every moment just request from Him, and talk to Him. And don't be afraid, because the fear - it's the Satan. And we are free people [Bnei Chorin]. We, Bnei Yisrael, we are the children of HKB"H. He's concerned for us '100%'. And He won't bring any evil to us. It might appear evil, but at the end of the day - it's good. And I ask of you, beg of you, those in chutz la'aretz and those in Israel, those in Israel - don't dream of going over there, and those in chutz la'aretz - start packing things, because the time has come.

World War Three Progress Report

15 Marcheshvan 5776

All of these very significant developments from today's headlines speak for themselves...

Obama weighs moving U.S. troops closer to front lines in Syria, Iraq

President Obama’s most senior national security advisers have recommended measures that would move U.S. troops closer to the front lines in Iraq and Syria,.... The changes would represent a significant escalation of the American role in Iraq and Syria.

U.S. boots on ground to fight Isis


Iran has been invited to participate for the first time in international talks over Syria's future, U.S. officials said Tuesday, a shift in strategy for the United States and its allies as they seek to halt the four-year civil war and eventually ease President Bashar Assad out of power. Iran has yet to reply, the officials said.

First Russian air strikes over Quneitra opposite the Golan

In its first sortie over Quneitra opposite Israeli Golan, the Russian air force struck Islamic State and Nusra Front positions Tuesday. Iranian sources noted that this was the closest Russian warplanes had ever come to the Syrian-Israeli border. The Russian jets also struck rebel targets the southern Syrian town of Deraa near the Jordanian border. On Oct. 9, DEBKAfile reported that the Russian air force was preparing to go into action over southern Syria and Israel was braced for Russian aerial intrusions over its Golan border.

U.S. Destroyer Sails Through Disputed Waters in South China Sea

A U.S. destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of artificial islands built by China in disputed waters on Tuesday in an open challenge to Beijing's territorial claims.

The ship did not encounter any resistance, but was trailed by Chinese ships during the transit in the South China Sea, a U.S. defense official told NBC News. It also triggered an angry response from Beijing.

Putin asked by Afghan government to help country fight the Taliban

Putin, Saudi King seek solution to Syria crisis

And then there's this...

A Hairsbreadth Can Mean the Difference Between Life and Death

14 Marcheshvan 5776

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is ways of death." (Proverbs 14.12)

Like everything else in this World of Sheker, the geulah process is not without its "Other Side". We remain in testing mode which requires free will and that means the Satan has permission to try to lure us back into the Matrix, and even more so if one is waking up from it and learning the Truth.

Those who have awoken to their mission and to their destiny must be ever on guard because the slightest - and I mean like a hairsbreadth - deviation from the Truth will lead you far astray over time. And what's most critical to understand at this time is how the Satan will not tempt you to do "evil", but to do what is "good" in your own eyes.

We're told that this is exactly how idolatry got started. Some people got together and decided that since the stars and planets serve the Creator like ministers to a king, it would be honoring to the King of the Universe to give honor also to his "ministers" - the stars and planets. Over time, people forgot the original rationale for their actions and began to worship the stars and planets as if they were themselves divine beings apart from the Creator.

This was a way that seemed right to some men, but its end - idolatry - led to [spiritual] death.

An example of how this kind of thinking is manifesting itself in this generation is a lesson in how a subtle change, even just a tweak, to an idea can lead to serious error down the road. There are those who are today promoting greater and greater "interfaith" involvement. They see this as not only a good thing, but as a noble mission. 

Aside from the fact that it goes against the rulings of earlier poskim, it has brought about a major change in focus almost completely unnoticed. The new thinking envisions Jews as servants of the gentiles; as ministers to the nations. The reality and the Truth is that we are servants and ministers of Hashem Yitbarach and Him alone and that will never change! Do the gentiles benefit from that? You bet they do!

So, be aware and be alert to subtle changes that don't comport with our traditional Torah teachings. And be cognizant of the fact that just because a Jew wraps himself in the cloak of geulah, it doesn't mean we are all on the same side.

Legacy of a Slain Prime Minister: The Peace That Never Was

13 Marcheshvan 5776

A milestone is deserving of comment. It has been twenty years since a Prime Minister of the State of Israel was slain. Last night, the Cult of Rabin kicked off a week of festivities to celebrate commemorate his death and his legacy. 

This is my small contribution...

Let us take a moment to remember the korbanot who were offered against their will on the Oslo 'Altar of Peace' for which this slain PM received fame, fortune and accolades.

May the names and memories of each person involved with this "covenant of death" (Isaiah 28.15-19) be blotted out forevermore.

Avodah Ivrit - Jewish Labor

13 Marcheshvan 5776

Let's put the lie to rest that Jewish businesses must hire Arabs to work because Jews won't do those jobs.

Jewish Labor Is There, You Just Have to Want It
By Uri Kirshenbaum on October 21, 2015

An interview with Nerya Ofan, the founder of the “Jewish Labor Forum,” on the potential of using only Jewish labor and on the importance of spreading ideas that raise awareness of the issue.

During the recent wave of terror attacks in Israel, it has often been the case that many of the Arab terrorists worked either for Jewish businesses or for the State (as in the case of the Bezeq employee he rammed into Jews with his car and then jumped out and stabbed several). This fact has led many Jews to turn their attention towards the potential of using Jewish labor.

Even Jews who normally do not focus on finding Jewish workers have found themselves wanting only Jewish workers and wanting to shop in stores that do not hire Arabs.

Fortunately for these Jews, there is already a project that identifies businesses using only Jewish labor and makes it easy to find them. Moreover, the founders of this project explain the importance of Jewish labor even when Arab terror is at a lower level. Nerya Ofan, a small-business owner himself, and a few friends who are all students of Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, created the “Jewish Labor Forum” (currently only in Hebrew). The forum is based on the internet and is a list of businesses throughout Israel that employ only Jews....

"Breaking Israel News"

A Public Service Announcement

It's no secret either to the Breaking Israel News website or to my fellow bloggers that I have a serious issue with this site's involvement with Xians and Xian sources. But, in particular, I have an issue with the free-for-all that the comments section has turned into. During a week of constant and unrelenting attacks on Jews, I took special exception to the following comment which was allowed to stand:


After complaining to one of the writers, I addressed my concerns to all those listed as administrators of the site. I did not receive a satisfactory reply.

Insofar as the Breaking Israel News website continues to allow its Xian commenters unrestricted permission to proselytize Jewish readers/commenters and denigrate Judaism, I have decided that in addition to excluding this "news" site as a source for information on this blog, henceforth, I will no longer host on my blog roll any other blog which links to it as a source either - starting from today. 

In my view, this site and the philosophy behind it is a chillul Hashem and presents a spiritual threat to fellow Jews.

A "Hard Message" Regarding Mashiach

2 Marcheshvan 5776

(Imperfect) Translation of article linked at Yeranen Yaakov and originally posted at sod1820:

HaRav Yisrael Shlomo Zayit in a hard message: You're "missing the boat"!
A decree has been decreed: The revelation of Mashiach will take place against your will!

HaRav Yisrael Shlomo Zayit announced at the lead-up to the Sukkot holiday that he can't say "Chag Sameach" because after Sukkot will begin a drip-drop of attacks that will continue until the revelation of Mashiach: a thing that is surely occurring in these days, really!

Message to Bnei Yisrael: Erev Shabbat Kodesh B'reishit

(A very, very important section (!!) of the message is highlighted in yellow)

Why are we obligated to call out and beg for Mashiach?

What is the innovation of Mashiach, indeed the Torah was already given at Har Sinai and there are rabbis and arbiters of halachah and outreach workers, so why do we need Mashiach?

Does Mashiach already exist? When will he be revealed? Is there a possibility to know when he will be revealed?

How does one repent???

About the rabbis in this generation who don't have a real desire for the kingdom of God through Mashiach:

Know Bnei Yisrael that you are beloved children, children of Avraham, beloved but with a stiff neck. Mashiach is coming to repair you, and to repair a world in the kingdom of God, but you don't understand this and your leaders don't warn you and don't awaken you and also those occupied with the Torah are not knowledgeable because all their Torah is lip service and not being done as a vehicle for the Holy Shechinah.

You're "missing the boat". Mashiach has suffered terrible torments for a very long period of time and a decree was decreed on the last 17th of Tamuz that occurred on Shabbat about the revelation of Mashiach and it will happen against your will, when much blood will be spilled in the street, when Jews will be butchered like bulls and oxen in the slaughterhouse, and your daughters will be raped, and all your money will be despised, and you will be insane from the sight of your eyes that you will see, and the few that remain will call out from the walls of his heart for the revelation of salvation and Mashiach.

I will clarify for you a few awesome secrets,

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and the Godly spirit hovered over the face of the water.

"Godly spirit hovered" - that's the spirit of Mashiach, as it's written: "And the spirit of God rested upon him". In which merit does he feel it and come? In the merit of repentance that is likened to water, as it is said: "Pour out your heart like water..." (Breishit Rabbah, parshah bet, dalet)

An awesome secret is being revealed to you because in Mashiach it will be revealed first:

The spirit of God - "And the spirit of God rested upon him..."

And after this will be revealed in him "...a spirit of wisdom and understanding..."

And after this "...a spirit of counsel and heroism..."

Leading up to the end "...a spirit of knowledge and fear of Hashem."

But, before all these spirits, the root of the Mashiach is from "the spirit of God that hovered over the face of the water." That's the power of Mashiach and that's his secret,

What is the spirit of God that hovered over the face of the water?

It's the power of God before the creation, a power that contains within it enormous contradictions, so to speak, [רזא דתנין הגדול] that Moshe Rabbeinu was afraid to get involved with, enormous energy without inhibitions, a power breaking out every framework and all existing order, a power within which concepts of good and evil do not exist, that's the power of the Ayn Sof blessed be He (before dressing Himself in sephirot). And in Mashiach and in Mashiach souls, this power is hidden, and the very deep things, and I will expand more.

There is a certain identity between holiness and emptiness, there's a place in which they are one. Not a place that transfers to good and to evil, HKB"H looks at us in an equalizing glance, it's a place within which the depth of evil is the depth of holiness. 'Darkness is like the light before him', there's something identical in darkness and in light.

If so, what was the sin of Paro and his wickedness?

Says the Prophet Yechezkel, "Speak and you shall say; So says the Lord God: Behold I am upon you, O Pharaoh, king of Egypt, the great crocodile that lies down in the midst of its rivers, who said, "My river is my own, and I made myself." (Yechezkel 29.3) This is the sin of pride when a righteous person thinks that his righteous acts are from [him], indeed he is like an evildoer who thinks that "...my river is my own, and I made myself."

"אגח לגביה אלא קודשא בריך הוא בלחודוי, דקטיל ליה מגו ימא, כמה דאוקימנא, בגין גסות רוחא דביה, כמה דאת אמר (יחזקאל כט ג) אשר אמר לי יארי וגו':

Re-Dividing Jerusalem

9 Marcheshvan 5776

Baruch Hashem that there are some clued in people who are making the job harder, but I fear the failure will come regardless and the unthinkable will happen - at least for a time. Jerusalem will be re-divided. 

“Behold, a day of G-d is coming, when your spoils will be divided in your midst." (Zechariah 14)

For how long, I suppose, depends on our efforts at teshuvah.

Last week, the government began placing a "temporary" wall between Jewish (Armon HaNetziv) and Arab (Jabal Muchaber) areas of the capital. They are literally across the street from each other. Within hours, people were calling for its removal out of fear that it was a prelude to a re-division of the city - just like the "security wall" is a de-facto partitioning of the "West Bank" from the rest of  "Israel proper".

(Ynet) "Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the barrier would remain "for as long as needed" and that it could be lengthened based on security needs."

Top: Jerusalem Wall; Bottom: West Bank Wall
All in the name of  "security". We're seeing in this day and age that humanity is being scared into willingly relinquishing hard-won human rights in the interest of personal "security".

So, this brings me to the reason I chose this subject today. 
Police Down Hundreds of Men in Eastern Jerusalem
Police stations in eastern Yerushalayim, faced with the heart of the Islamic violence and attacks in the capital, are significantly shorthanded, lacking about 400 policemen.

Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan is working to encourage them by offering financial and other incentives, yet fewer and fewer policemen are willing to serve in the predominately Arab areas of the capital and the high confrontation areas. Policemen explain they are unwilling to endure what the job demands for a mere NIS 400-500 extra monthly. This they explain includes serving in the Arab areas and the Old City. “We prefer NIS 500 monthly less and have a quiet life” one officer is quoted telling Walla News anonymously.
What this anonymous police officer doesn't seem to grasp yet is that no place on earth is going to be "quiet" - ever again. 

But, this is just another reason to give "East" Jerusalem to the Arabs for their capital. They wil say that the State can't continue to bear the burden of supplying security to these areas which most Jews have been scared into avoiding. And that will include the Old City, too!

I firmly believe that everything we're seeing and experiencing today has been orchestrated with the cooperation of this regime and is meant to "soften up" the populace for this inevitable eventuality.

Who Really Fights For Us?

7 Marcheshvan 5776
(Don't forget to ask for rain!)

The following was posted by "Dvir" in the comments section on Dov Bar Leib's blog...
This was posted by someone on Facebook from Chabad.
Basically an Arab was following a Chassidish lady in Jerusalem for about 20 min. After which he disappeared. The woman immediately called in his description to the police. They were able to make the arrest and brought him in for investigation. During which he revealed that he was planning to stab her but couldn't get close to her, since she had with her two big bullies one and the right side and one on her left side. After realizing these bullies weren't leaving her side he gave up. The police went back to the woman to confirm she was alone like she had told them. She confirmed she was alone but said the whole time the Arab was following her she kept repeating the pasuk מימיני מיכאל ומשמאלי גבריאל  ("On my right Micha'el and on my left Gavriel").
There have been other such stories especially during Israel's past wars...
...During the Independence War, Ira Rappaport’s Israeli platoon fought the Jordanian military for Mount. Zion and found themselves surrounded by hundreds with only twenty five bullets left. With a sad end seemingly near, the men agreed to go out with a bang and readied themselves to make good use of every last bullet. Then, just when the small platoon were about to face the inevitable, something incredible happened. The Jordanian soldiers dropped their weapons and began suddenly running away, screaming “ABRAHAM!”. Several years later, Ira would come across a familiar face with an unlikely answer, as to what had actually occurred on that miraculous day. This was a former Jordanian soldier who had fought against Ira on Mount. Zion. According to him, his army all witnessed a vision of Abraham defending the Jews in the sky above the Israeli platoon and had no choice, but to drop their weapons.
...During the Yom Kippur War, A small impossibly outnumbered Israeli force held back a large portion of the Syrian army, for four days in the Golan Heights. The Syrians were armed with hundreds of tanks, but gave the Israeli forces a false sense of security revealing only a few of their tanks in battle formation for months before the massive attack they had planned. If this attack was successful they could have taken Israel. They had three infantry divisions and over a thousand tanks. At one point, it was said to be just three Israeli tanks against one hundred and fifty Syrian tanks. A sergeant, out of shells wanted to leave his position, but was ordered to stay put. With no ammo, he was up against impossible odds. It would take a miracle to save him; to save Israel, and that’s just what happened. The Syrians retreated, just when the Israeli force was on the verge of collapse! It has been theorized that the Syrians didn’t know the tanks were out of shells and seeing only a few tanks changing positions, they may have believed that Israel had more tanks than they actually did. However, a Syrian soldier swears an army of Angels surrounded those few tanks Israel had and considering the rate of miracles surrounding the small country of Israel, that could truly be what happened in what is now known as, the Valley of Tears. (Source)
And who can forget the story about the appearance of "Mama Rachel" in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead?...
Two days have passed since the ceasefire in Gaza took effect, and one of the most widespread legends of the days on the battlefield has received rabbinical approval. On the last days of the war, rumors spread about a woman presenting herself as Jewish matriarch Rachel appearing to IDF soldiers and warning them of explosives, booby-trapped houses and terrorist ambushes within the Gaza Strip.
Former Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, who is considered one of most prominent religious leaders in Israel, recently prayed several times at Rachel's Tomb for the safety of the troops. When asked about the rumor, the rabbi said, "The story is true. I sent her." (Source)
Well, believe it or not, but these stories are all very consistent with our tradition as recounted in the Tanakh...
"And it was when Joshua was in Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and saw, and, behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand; and Joshua went to him, and said to him, Are you for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, No, but I am the captain of the host of the Lord; I have now come...." (Yehoshua 5.13-14)
Rashi - The "man" reassured Yehoshua that he was not an enemy, but an angel who had come to guarantee success in the battle of Jericho.
"And the Philistines came up once again and spread out in the valley of Rephaim. And David inquired of the Lord, and He said: 'Do not go up; circle in back of them, and come upon them from against the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear the sound of steps in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall bestir yourself; for then the Lord has gone out before you to smite the camp of the Philistines.'" (Shmuel Bet 5.22-24)
Rashi - (the sound of steps in the tops of the mulberry trees): which are the sounds of angels treading in the treetops whom I have lent to your aid.
And then there is perhaps the most famous one of all. The battle which could have been considered Gog uMagog if Hizkiyahu HaMelech had sung a song of thanksgiving (Sanhedrin 94a)...
"...Be strong and of good courage; do not fear and do not be dismayed because of the king of Assyria and because of all the multitude that is with him, because He Who is with us is greater than those with him. With him is an arm of flesh, and with us is the Lord our God to help us and to wage our wars," and the people relied on the words of Hezekiah, king of Judah.
[Sancheriv responded]...And now, let Hezekiah not deceive you, and let him not entice you like this, and do not believe him, for no god of any nation or kingdom could save his people from my hand or from the hand of my fathers; surely your God will not save you from my hand."
...And King Hezekiah and the prophet, Isaiah the son of Amoz prayed concerning this, and they cried out to Heaven. And the Lord sent an angel, and he destroyed every mighty warrior and ruler and officer in the camp of the king of Assyria, and he returned shamefacedly to his land, and he entered the temple of his god, and some of his own issue felled him there with the sword. And the Lord saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria and from the hand of all, and He led them from roundabout. (Divrei HaYamim Bet 32.7-8, 15, 20-22)
It's well worth your time to read the entire account. These are the words and the memories of past triumphs which strengthen our spirits and inspire our faith even today!

We must remember: "... If the Lord will not build a house, its builders have toiled at it in vain; if the Lord will not guard a city, [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain." (Tehillim 127.1)

"Is Hashem Among Us Or Not?"

6 Marcheshvan 5776

There is no denying that when we stood on the shore of Yam Suf, we were utterly and absolutely dependent on Hashem alone and there was nothing realistically that we could do to help ourselves. We were completely at Hashem's mercy and seemingly that of our worst enemies as well. But, Hashem came through for us. He split the waters of the sea and we walked across on dry land. Then, when our enemies pursued us even into the sea bed, the waters rushed back and covered them until they drowned.

We rejoiced at our miraculous salvation and praised Hashem for His goodness and mercy and for our deliverance, but it didn't take long before the internal enemies pounced - doubt, fear and lack of faith.

1) Doubt

"He called the place Massah U'Meribah, because of the contention of the Children of Israel and because of their test of Hashem, saying, 'Is Hashem among us or not?' Amalek came...." (Shemot 17.7-8)

Commentary: "Massah U'Meribah, literally Test and Contention. The people tested God, as the verse goes on to say, to see if He was truly among them. They contended with Him by putting their complaint in the form of a challenge.... By naming the place for their behavior, Moses reminded the people for all time that God was indeed among them and that the way to express their needs is through prayer, not insolent challenges."

Amalek is the same gematria is safek, doubt. The people doubted whether God was among them. That doubt opened the door to Amalek's attack.

2) Fear

Then, from the depths of human degradation and slavery, we reached the summit of human existence when at Mount Sinai, the Creator and Master of the Universe came down to us to draw us as close to Himself as a human being can get in this world.

"They said to Moses, 'You speak to us and we shall hear; let God not speak to us lest we die.' Moses said to the people, 'Do not fear, for in order to elevate you has God come; so that awe of Him shall be upon your faces, so that you shall not sin. The people stood from afar and Moses approached the thick cloud where God was." (Shemot 20.16-18)

Commentary: The nation's fear and Moses' reassurance. After the people achieved the level of prophecy and heard the awesome voice of God, they recoiled in fear, lest they die because they were unworthy of such an experience. Moses reassured them and told them that the experience had elevated them and would cause them no ill effects. 

Lest we die. Just as human eyes are blinded when they stare at the sun, the people felt themselves incapable of remaining alive if they were to hear the voice of God. The people's fear was quite rational, for prophecy is not the natural human condition. With the exception of Moses, all prophets had severe limitations on their ability to function in a normal manner while they were experiencing their prophecies. Some fell into a trance at the time of their visions and others could see prophecy only in the form of dreams.

Do not fear. Moses reassured them, saying that God did not wish to take their lives. Rather, He had made them participants in these monumental miracles in order to elevate them...and to show them first hand His awesomeness.

3) Lack of Faith

What shame! Our fear held us back from the very pinnacle of spiritual accomplishment. And it cost us. It cost us dearly. We did not quite reach the level that would have enabled us to pass the test of the Golden Calf. First, the doubt and then the fear. Together they brought us to a lack of faith - in Hashem and in Moshe. We stopped believing that Moshe would return as promised and imagined ourselves to have been abandoned and hence vulnerable. We suddenly believed we had to save ourselves and we made a Golden Calf to lead us back to the 'safety' of Egypt - the known versus the unknown.

Hashem would not let us off so easily. Am Yisrael cannot escape her mission or her destiny. But, what could have been and should have been a fairly easy, quick and straightforward transition to Eretz Yisrael became instead a much longer and much harder and much less rewarding prospect than it could have been and should have been.

Behold! I send an angel before you to protect you on the way, and to bring you to the place that I have made ready." (Shemot 23.20)

Commentary: The promise of swift passage to, and conquer of, the Land. God promises Moses that the Jews will be led into Eretz Yisrael, and that He would assist them in their conquest of the Canaanite nations....

I send an angel. God alluded to the future sin of Israel in building the Golden Calf, as a result of which the people forfeited God's personal providential care. Even after they repented, God told Moses that he would withdraw His Presence from them and send an angel to lead them to the Land. There Moses protested the decree and begged that God Himself accompany the people and God relented. ...After Moses death, however, an angel appeared to Yehoshua and idenitfied himself as the head of Hashem's legion. That was the angel announced in this verse, who had been kept in abeyance during Moses' lifetime, but was dispatched to lead Israel after his death.

"Hashem spoke to Moses, '.... I shall send an angel ahead of you, and I shall drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perezzite, the Hivvite, and the Jebusite - to a land that flows with milk and honey, because I shall not ascend among you, for you are a stiff-necked people, lest I annihilate you on the way.'" (Shemot 33.1-3)

Commentary: Because I shall not ascend among you. Because you are a stiff-necked people and are therefore always in danger of sinning and incurring my wrath, I cannot remain in your midst. Therefore, I must send My angel with you. This declaration included two aspects of Divine displeasure: that God would not accompany them, and that aeven the angel would be with them only until they occupied the land; then he would leave them.

"Moses would take the Tent and pitch it outside the camp, far from the camp, and call it Tent of Meeting. So it was that whoever sought Hashem would go out to the Tent of Meeting, which was outside the camp." (Shemot 33.7)

Commentary: Moses' tent. Since the people had fallen from their lofty spiritual perch and God had announced that His Presence would not reside among them, Moses left the camp and set up his tent in isolation from the sinners.

"Hashem said to Moses, 'Carve for youself two stone Tablets like the first ones, and I shall inscribe on the Tablets the words that were on the first Tablets, which you shattered.'" (Shemot 34.1)

Commentary: The Second Tablets. On 29 Av, at the end of Moses' second forty-day period on Mount Sinai, God agreed to give a second set of Tablets to Israel. This time, however, the stone tablets themselves would not be the handiwork of God; instead, Moses was commanded to carve out the stone cubes and bring them to the mountain, whereupon God would inscirbe the commandments on them. This change was a reflection of the lowered status of the nation. The first time, they were completely amenable to God's will. They had said, "na'aseh v'nishmah, we will do and we will hear", meaning that they had transformed themselves into instruments of God's will. Because they had reached an exalted spiritual state in which their bodies, not only their souls, were suffused with Godliness, this was reflected in the physical Tablets, which were fashioned by the hand of God. Now, however, despite their repentance and Moses' successful prayers, they were no longer on that level. It would be for them to perfect themselves with constant effort to lift themselves back to where they had been - a task that will be completed when we merit the coming of Mashiach.

Through doubt, fear, and lack of faith the long downward slide began and continued, ending in exile and holocausts, God forbid! We, and the world with us are terribly distant from Hashem and His Holy Shechinah, but we are currrently engaged in a process of elevation and revelation which will eventually culminate in our ascent, once again, to the lofty state that we were destined for at Mount Sinai. 

I believe it is critical that we repair these three sins especially in preparation for this time period - doubt, fear, and lack of faith. Let's work very hard to strengthen ourselves and each other in these areas. Chazak v'amatz!
