Israel switches defense chiefs in surprise political move

Wednesday, May 18 was one of the most intense days in Israeli politics in recent years, with countless strange headlines that Zionist Camp party chairman Yitzhak Herzog was about to become foreign minister. It became clear that Prime Minister Netanyahu decided to appoint Avigdor Lieberman the head of the right wing “Yisrael Beitenu” party as defense minister instead of Moshe Ya’alon, in exchange for the support by the small party, with just six Knesset members, for his coalition.

...Zionist Camp party leader Herzog claimed Wednesday night that Netanyahu agreed to give him the defense portfolio one year after his party joins the government. If that was true, it needs to be asked if Netanyahu has turned Israel’s security into personal political capital that can be passed within several hours from an irresponsible and extremist left-wing party (even according to Herzog’s definition) to an opportunist right-wing party.

...The defense portfolio crisis did not end with Lieberman’s appointment, it is just beginning,
The incumbent, Moshe Ya’alon, announced Wednesday night that he will not give up the portfolio and will not submit his resignation.

I'll be happy to see Ya'alon go, but I do not trust Lieberman... or Netanyahu... or any of the government for that matter. However, I do trust Hashem Yitbarach. And as Rabbi Pinchas Winston likes to point out in King David's Psalms...

"That which is wondrous in our eyes is from Hashem."

Absolutely true - agree 100%. Yaalon is really a leftist and Lieberman might be considered right wing but is definitely bad for the dati sector. He has no religion in him. They are all politicians and have little or no devotion to H' or the kedusha of Eretz Yisrael. nili

just saying...: Wednesday May 18th was the 25th day in the Counting of the Omer (Netzach that is in Netzach). The name of Meir Ettinger's baby that was given to him at the Brit Milah that Meir could not attend because Yaalon ordered him to remain away from his own son's Brit Milah is.....Netzach Binyamin.....Just saying.

Oh and I was at the Seudat Brit for Netzach Ettinger. And Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh Shlit"a spoke for almost 2 hours at the seudah about the name Netzach. I could only stay for 1 1/2 hrs. There was a court reporter or Mazkir there recording his entire drashah. Given what is going on right now, a smart person would start trying to get the Rav's drashah to get a better insight into precisely what is happening right now as we approach the 50th Gate, the beginning of the 50th yr of Ichud Yerushalayim during the 6 Day War. Meir gets out of solitary four days before Yom Yerushalayim......just saying...

In my humble opinion, leAniyuit Daati, these currently unfolding political developments are of a MAJOR IMPORTANCE - they may mark the immediate beginning of the PERIOD OF MASHIACH BEN YOSEF indeed ! Somehow also the person of Mashiach Ben Yosef, who must be a product of this current State of Israel (this state is a Klipa of the future State of Mashiach), this person MBY must somehow enter this totally corrupt and absolutely rotten power structure of this superficially-appearing-to-be-evil State of Israel - in order to transform this state suddenly from within - not unlike the miraculous transformation which a totally rotten seed of grain makes when buried into the earth, a sudden miraculous transformation from the ultimate death to the ultimate beginning of life ! So must be also Mashiach Ben Yosef. But Mashiach Ben Yosef is destined to be killed by the enemies of G-D, by the enemies of the Jewish People. Likewise the current form of the State of Israel will surely "die", will totally disappear from existence, shortly before the dawn of the PERIOD OF MASHIACH BEN DAVID, who will establish the true Torah based monarchy in the Holy Land, the continuation of the Kingdom of David. The first period, of Mashiach Ben Yosef may be up to SEVEN years, counting from NOW ! From then on, there will be, G-D Willing !, the beginning of the period of Mashiach Ben David.

Amen, but why count from now and still wait for anothr seven years. The good Jews of Israel have been standing up against (whether it be a person or the G-D fearing Jews of Israel) the radicals of the State; hopefully, the coming of Moshiach Ben Dovid will be sooner than we can imagine. (Moshiach Ben Yosef need not be a person, but those who will fight our enemies).
