Yom Kippur Katan
44 Days of the Omer
Today is Yom Kippur Katan - a day for sober introspection and sincere repentance.
Contrary to those Jews who are celebrating, I feel that in the days and weeks and months to come we may mark this day as a Nakba of our own. This move of the United States Embassy, purely symbolic as it is at this point, portends, in my view, the first real step towards asserting official Christian control in Jerusalem.

Eisav already controls Har Tzion and Yishmael has control of Har HaMoriah. How are they going to settle this contest for the Holy City? We, the Jews, are like some annoying little gnat buzzing around their heads. We are six million and they are in the billions!
All of this "gratitude" being poured out on Trump, as if he were making this move for our sake, is sickening to say the very least. Trump is acting on a promise he made to his Christian Zionist/Dominionist constituency, not the Jews! If he really cared for Jews, Israeli Jews in particular, he would have offered us something we have asked for and prayed for these past 33 years - Jonathan Pollard's freedom!
Until President Trump will provide justice for Jonathan Pollard, I will continue to view every move he makes here to be self-serving, manipulative and purely in the interests of Eisav's ultimate goals, just like the event being celebrated on this dark day.
