When Are We Going to Reach Bottom?

21 Marcheshvan 5780

Here are some articles that everyone should read.  In case you missed them...
Trump said ‘frustrated’ with Netanyahu as deadlock delays peace plan

Barkat: US may adopt West Bank plan for 250,000 Palestinian jobs, Bible tourism
On the same subject, I read an unconfirmed report that Trump was considering going ahead and releasing his Deal of the Century in the belief that it might "persuade Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu bloc of 8 members to join Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s bloc of 55 members to form Israel’s next Government."

With this announcement a short time ago, we may have that confirmation...
Pompeo shifts US settlement stance, says calling them illegal won’t bring peace

In major shift, US set to rescind stance on illegality of settlements
With all his legal problems piling up, Trump has got be desperate for a big win, especially after losing two southern governorships.  Right now, he probably has dreams of Peace Prizes dancing in his head.  He really believes his own propaganda about 98% of Israelis love him, and he could come to Israel and get elected Prime Minister.  So, now he thinks Israel will give him his way out - after all, look at all he has done for us.  

But, just like his "recognition of (West) Jerusalem as Israel's capital" does not prejudice its final status vis a vis the Fakestinians, and just like the US continues to operate an embassy out of Tel Aviv at the same time there is an embassy plaque affixed to a small existing facility located on the old "seam line," recognition of (unidentified) "settlements" does not equate to Israeli sovereignty over the "West Bank."

Can't you picture Barkat's plan coming to fruition as part of Trump's Deal of the Century?  Israel - The Christian Disneyland with Fakestinian Arabs more entrenched among us than ever!  How long until the Jews are outnumbered by Christians and Muslims in "the only Jewish State?"

Who the h*ll cares whether the United States recognizes Jerusalem or the Golan or Judea and Samaria?  If Jews cared a tenth as much about HKB"H's opinions as they do about these low-life American politicians, we would not find ourselves in this fix!!

How much lower can we go?  When are we ever going to reach the bottom so we can begin the climb back up?


  1. Why can't most people see that they are not doing us any favors. They are serving their own interests. They are giving with one hand and taking away with the other and it's not their place at all to do either!!

  2. Unfortunately, it's such a quagmire. Again, it always comes down to the truth of which is, it's our fault (really) because we always seem to put our faith and trust, r'l, in princes/men, instead of the Ribbono Shel Olam. And we never seem to learn, r'l. (When I say 'we', I mean those who are in leadership positions and the majority assimilated Jewish world.) Because of the balance remaining of us who pray, learn Torah and put our full emunah and bitachon in H', we will be redeemed and may it be very soon with rachamim rabim.
    Also,we should never ask 'how low can we go'. I know someone I really respect who says, 'never ask that, there's always lower and those who seem to see no wrong, even if it's to the abyss', r'l. We see this because we see the reality of today's world. H' help us!

  3. It's shocking to me how many people have the ability to see only what they wish to see and to hear only what they wish to hear.

    So true Devash,
    Tanach - Psalms Chapter 81

    1. To the chief Musician, according to Gittit, A Psalm of Asaph.
    2. Sing aloud to God our strength; make a joyful noise to the God of Jacob.
    3. Raise a song, and beat the tambourine, the sweet lyre with the harp.
    4. Blow a shofar at the new moon, at the full moon on our feast day.
    5. For this is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
    6. This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt. I heard the language of one whom I had not known,
    7. Saying, I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands are freed from the basket.
    8. You called in trouble, and I saved you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
    9. Hear, O my people, and I will warn you, O Israel, if you will listen to me:
    10. There shall be no strange god among you; nor shall you worship any foreign god.
    11. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
    12. But my people would not listen to my voice; and Israel would have none of me.
    13. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, and they walked in their own counsels.
    14. Oh that my people would listen to me, and that Israel would walk in my ways!
    15. I should soon subdue their enemies, and turn my hand against their adversaries.
    16. Let the haters of the Lord cringe before him, and their punishment should last for ever.
    17. And he would feed him with the finest of the wheat; and I would satisfy you with honey from the rock.

    We recite this every Yom Chamishi as the daily Tehillim. I wonder when will we ever "hear" it.

  5. You are right they or him do everything for themselves but we should be happy that Hashem is bringing Geula now ! that's all!

  6. There's an under the radar rumor that the "Peace Plan" is as follows: Trump declares Jordan the Palestian state, grants Arabs living in Yehuda & Shomron Jordanian citizenship and "encourages" West Bank Arabs to relocate.
    Obviously, this requires the overthrow of King Hussein. No

    There's more but really far out there.
    I'm sure most people know that both Trump & David Friedman's gematria is Moshiach Ben David.
    They know it too.

    It says in Sepher Yitzira,"Saphar, Sopher, Sepur."If I've gotten this right, a book(an account), a writer, a story.
    Clearly, Hashem yisb is the One and Only Master Story Writer and we will not know it all until it's done, bb'a.

    1. I'm sure most people know that the GR"A taught that entities with the same gematria can be in opposition to each other.

      The "coup" taking place in America right now is the work of HKB"H, as is the stalemate in the electoral process in Israel - saving us from this damnable Peace Plan. Considering what HKB"H is wiling to do to prevent its release, how good do you think it really is for the Jews? With all the obvious signs, all I can figure is that people are reading upside down.

  7. The goal remains the same: egalitarianize Israel in order to undermine Hashem's Torah and His holy servants.

    Trump may be better at disguising it than others.

    If all religious points of view are accepted, then none can be seen as authoritative (particularly the Torah). Thereby, Israel is divided and conquered by a "secular authority" under a pretense of mediating between all parties.

    It is astounding what the Israeli government allows to happen on the Temple Mount, and the Rabbinate is silent! Overall, in the current situation, justice can only come from Hashem. May it be imminently upon us!

  8. Bringing together Esau and Yishmael... Now where have I heard that one before...?

    The Kol HaTor describing one kind (one attribute?) of the Erev Rav, no? It's been a while since I learned this.

    1. The Vilna Gaon, otherwise known as the GRA, who lived some 250 years ago, wrote much about our times, just prior to the Final Redemption, and the influence of the "mixed multitude" upon us. The GRA tells us that our main war must be against this mixed multitude and their influence on the Jewish people. And so he writes:

      "The main striving of the erev rav [mixed multitude] is to mate Esau and Ishmael and separate the two Messiahs, and our own main battle is to shatter and rout the power of the erev rav, the impurity of evil Armelius, from Israel.

      "The erev rav is our greatest enemy. It is what separates between the two Messiahs. Its impurity operates only via indirect deception. Hence, the war against the erev rav is the hardest and most bitter, and we must gird ourselves with our last strength toward this end. Whoever does not actively take part in the war against the erev rav automatically becomes a partner to its impurity, and whoever he is, he is better off not having been born. The main strength of the erev rav is in the gates of Jerusalem, especially at the entrance to the city on the western dividing line."

      But do not think for a moment that the battle is lost when darkness will cover the Land, for it will be through these hard times, battling the erev rav, that salvation will break forth. The GRA consoles us by writing that in the end of times, from all the troubles that befall us will come forth salvation, for one must know that the Land of Israel is acquired through suffering.

      We must not retreat from any of the work we are doing for the Redemption, no matter what obstacles we have in our path, for know for sure that through these obstacles will come salvation.

      --- R. Levi Chazen

    2. It's all good and well to read and quote - but has anyone actually ever written the How to Fight the Erev Rav manual? How does *fighting the ER* translate into day to day living in Eretz Yisrael when one interfaced with them?

    3. Prayer is our number one weapon, calling on Hashem to deliver us.

      Then, resist, resist, resist by any means at your disposal, even if it is just to speak out via the internet, and give support to others who do. This strengthens the good and lets the weak know they are not alone. It helps to clarify the thoughts of those who waver. Resist all their efforts to turn EY into a nation like all others, to replace Torah and mitzvot with warped and twisted "Western values," and to destroy the unique and holy people through mass assimilation with non-Jews.

      Point it out and identify it wherever you find it and educate and inform those in your sphere of influence of their obligation to so the same.

    4. Yes. Good points. Also it's telling that the infamous - Mah Eichpat Li should be a good indicator of who you're dealing with. Usually they don't care about anything pertaining to the Land and usually have their hands in wanton destruction. So it's easy to spot them on this level and to simply repair by planting, cleaning and blessing.

    Again,100%, tell it like it is...we must see through the haze and daze and ask always,"What is G-d's opinion?"


    US officials to Israeli TV: New settlement policy not green light for annexation

    Administration figures add the move also should not be seen as support for ‘unrestrained building’; US ambassador to Israel said behind shift in American approach

  11. Some sovereignty! matana with a closed hand! Only Moshiach will change everything.
