"Cleansing of the Mind"

5 Shevat 5780
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Bo
"...The entire parshah is called 'Bo,' every word, every pasuk of the 105 pesukim of the parshah is called 'Bo,' yet this is the parshah of yetzias Mitzrayim.  That already tells us that the goal is not so much the going out.  The goal is coming in.  When we go out, then we are able to enter.  When we go out of Mitzrayim, we are able to enter Yerushalayim, we're able to get closer to Hashem."

Rabbi Mordechai Sitorsky

"...if you refuse to let My people go, tomorrow I will bring locusts on your territory."

What a Spectacle!

3 Shevat 5780

The introductory music for their entrance sounded like the herald for a king but they should have played circus music...

Bibi and Donald's Dog and Pony Show

The First US President (currently impeached and under trial) and the First Israeli Prime Minister (not exactly currently elected and under indictment) to recognize a Palestinian State!

Oh, now I get it.  Purim came early this year?  April FOol's?  No?

What have they been smoking?!  They are insane!  No self-respecting Arab would go for this.  And it's too humiliating to even consider.  It makes sense that Erev Rav Jews were behind this.  They have no concept of self respect or national pride.  What a waste of time!

The best part of the whole spectacle was when Trump mentioned the Al "Aqua" Mosque.  LOL!!

Trump doesn't know and doesn't care.  He just wants to be liked and to go down in history.  He will certainly go down in history - just like Paro - as the leader of one of the greatest empires the world has ever known during its final days.

The Second "Bombshell" - Coronavirus!

2 Shevat 5780

In the motzaei Shabbat blog post, Gog uMagog Is Happening NOW!,  I mentioned three "bombshells" having hit at once.  I took the third one first and now, it seems the time has come to discuss the second one - the coronavirus.

We can tell by the speed with which an event develops and the massive amount of publicity it receives whether it is a major signpost of the quickly arriving geulah.

While the outbreak of the coronavirus in China is clearly one of those things, I've held back from writing about it because it was not yet clear to me whether it is real or manufactured. (In the end, it doesn't matter.)

For instance, there are reports that it developed naturally in a market area due to unsanitary conditions; however, there are yet other reports that The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation patented a coronavirus in 2018 and that just such a scenario as is happening at this minute was drilled three months ago in New York. (See: Event 201 Simulation)  And yet other reports discuss the possibility that it was a Chinese bioweapon that "leaked" out. (Wuhan Institute of Virology)

What made me suspicious from the beginning was the out-of-all-reason hype and fear-mongering engaged in by the mass media before anything was really known.  From the immediate quarantine of the 11-million-strong population of Wuhan, to the scenes of hazmat-garbed airport attendants taking the temperatures of passengers exiting flights from China, it seemed like overkill (excuse the pun).

Fatality numbers were said to be "jumping" and "shooting up" with each report of the numbers of dead and infected.  However, each set of numbers showed a consistent 3.1 % mortality rate.  Compare that to the mortality rates of the 1918 Spanish flu (20%), or the Bubonic plague (50%), or Ebola (90%).  The mortality rate we are actually seeing, if the reported numbers are correct (big "if" I admit, but if it's made up, they could make up bigger numbers, too), is more akin to the measles.  Not much of a weapon. (See: Coronavirus Deaths Are So Far Mostly Older Men, Many With Previous Health Issues)

From the beginning, I was more concerned that it was a giant exercise in how to immediately imprison (quarantine) massive numbers of people with full global approval.  For what diabolical purpose, even I can't imagine, although let it be yet another lesson in how not to depend on complete freedom of movement at all times (for those who think they can "run" whenever they choose).  I give no credence whatsoever to any videos via social media purportedly revealing the true "dire" situation in China.  It's too easily faked.  It looks to me right now like everyone wants it to appear to be worse than it really is. The ultimate question is "Why?"

As anyone can see, we have nothing whatever to depend upon except our Father in Heaven.  We can't even depend on the reportage to know what exactly is really going on.  But, we can make some educated guesses based on the consequences that we see emerging.
The Coronavirus Is A Black Swan Event That May Have Serious Repercussions For The U.S. Economy And Job Market

Dow posts worst day since October and turns negative for the year as coronavirus fears grow
If this outbreak was intentional and is being hyped unreasonably, creating a massive climate of fear, it is possible that this is the method by which they mean to create a controlled collapse of the global economy since it was already teetering on the brink and could not be prevented in any case.

Through mass media, the architects of the New World Order can manipulate and control the entire world's population through FEAR. We who fear only God - and nothing else whatsoever - cannot be controlled or manipulated. (In fact, they fear us.)  We who know without any doubts Who really runs this world, have no cause whatsoever for fear of anything but Him.

This, too, is paving the way for the revelation of Mashiach Tzidkeinu as the approaching economic collapse will cause the West to lose it's grip on Israel's neck.  They will be too concerned with the mayhem in their own streets to take action against Mashiach's meteoric rise to power in Israel - most hopefully before the next scheduled election!!

I have to add that this is mida k'neged mida for those among the triumvirate - Eisav (Trump), Yishmael (Bin Salman) and the Erev Rav (Kushner) - who were orchestrating the theft of 70% (at least) of Eretz Yisrael in order to "promote prosperity" - their prosperity.

And Hashem will ask them why so glum?  It's just business - MY business.
NOTE:  The scenario used in the drill in New York supposedly estimated 65 million dead from a coronavirus pandemic.  Just to put that into perspective, that is less than 1% of the total world population.  And it would take months or up to a year.  An estimated 55 million people die every year across the globe.

How Many So-Called Jews Really Don't Believe?

Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5780

They don't really believe in God and they certainly don't believe that they are obligated to fulfill the "difficult" mitzvot.
"...our main service and battle is to break and to remove the strength of the Erev Rav,... the Erev Rav is our greatest enemy, ... the war against the Erev Rav is the most difficult and bitterest of all....
Divre Simcha by Rabbi Simcha Ysachar Ber Chalberstam, zt"l) "...even if we see in them (The Erev Rav) good things like Torah and tradition and good manners and in particular they make peace with everybody and peace is the foundation of everything,...we must reject all these people even when they have good aspects in their behavior because then will be time of clarification and selection and this will be the trial and choice in those days."

The unnoticed speech in which US envoy revealed contours of peace deal
Israel’s right to the West Bank is ‘obvious,’ Ambassador David Friedman said, but also noted that Palestinians are ‘indigenous’ to the land and deserving of independence
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman was one of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s special guests on his flight Sunday to Washington for the upcoming festive unveiling of the administration’s much-expected ‘Deal of the Century.’
Having lost his mother recently, Friedman, who is an Orthodox Jew, twice came to the back of the plane during the flight, together with some of Netanyahu’s senior advisers and religiously observant journalists, to lead afternoon and evening prayers and say kadish, the mourner’s prayer.
Friedman is one of the key architects of the US administration’s approach toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict — together with US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner....
...he referred to these Palestinians as “indigenous,” thus refusing to endorse the talking point of many Israelis on the right who consider the Palestinian presence illegitimate and want to encourage their emigration.
Indeed, by calling Palestinians “indigenous” to this land, Friedman was implying that they, too, have rights to it.
In another hint at the deal’s parameters, the US top diplomat expressed his wish for Palestinians to “live in dignity, in peace, and with independence, pride and opportunity.”
"...two million or more Palestinians reside in Judea and Samaria, and we all wish that they live in dignity, in peace, and with independence, pride and opportunity. We are committed to find a way to make that happen."
Hashem's Peace Plan, and therefore, Mashiach's Peace Plan according to the TORAH Commandment (Bamidbar 33:50-56)...
The Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying:  Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their temples, destroy their molten idols, and demolish their high places.
You shall clear out the Land and settle in it, for I have given you the Land to occupy it.  You shall give the Land as an inheritance to your families by lot; to the large, you shall give a larger inheritance and to the small you shall give a smaller inheritance; wherever the lot falls shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers, you shall inherit. 
But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle.  And it will be that what I had intended to do to them, I will do to you.

Are You Really Ready to Receive Mashiach?

Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5780
The month of Shevat has already in it a sweetening because the midat hadin [of Tevet] begins to wane and on Tu b'Shevat din turns into rachamim. From Tu b'Shevat until Shavuot, every two weeks there's a yom tov.
...In Shevat we go from din to rachamim.  ...Tevet is the month of din, the month of darkness, the month of concealment, the month of Asarah b'Tevet, the beginning of the punishment, so when we come to the conclusion of Tevet, that's usually the most difficult.  The last week is where midat hadin is very strong.
...The Zohar HaKadosh tells us that there are three months that are the domain of Eisav ... that still have to be turned around and they are Tamuz/half of Av and Tevet/half of Shevat.  So, until Tu b'Shevat there is still midat hadin, but on Rosh Chodesh Shevat, there is already a sweetening because according to Beit Shammai [as it will be in the time of Mashiach] Rosh Chodesh Shevat is actually the Rosh Hashanah Ilanot [New Year of the Trees] when din turns to rachamim.  (Rabbi Sitorsky in his recent shiur on Vayera)
And davka, it was the last week of Eisav's month of din - Tevet - when Eisav and Yishmael converged to establish a Palestinian State under the auspices of President Eisav Trump's "Deal of the Century" and under the guise of standing against antisemitism at the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

How  deluded?  How divorced from reality does one have to be to think any good can come from giving up pieces of Eretz Yisrael or from any person who already gave up pieces of it [Netanyahu] or who will expect us to give up pieces of it [Trump, Kushner, et al.].

Netanyahu gave away Hevron (Netanyahu and Arafat Agree on Israeli Pullout in Hebron) and voted to expel Jews from Gush Katif and has destroyed one Jewish outpost after another while leaving the Beduin encampment - Khan al Ahmar - at peace.  He even gave Kever David to the Vatican! (After 60 Years of Pressure, Israeli Government Caves In to Vatican) and parts of Jerusalem to Putin just now! (‘The Russians are coming’ for more Jerusalem properties)  He already, in his now famous Bar Ilan Speech, laid out the conditions under which he would accept a Palestinian State in Judea and Samaria:
Netanyahu expressed his willingness to accept a Palestinian state alongside Israel, under the following conditions: recognition of Israel as a Jewish state; a solution to the issue of Palestinian refugees outside Israel; demilitarization of the future Palestinian state; defensible borders for Israel; and Jerusalem remaining the united capital of Israel. (Source)
This is precisely what some are claiming is in Trump's Plan.  There are those who cynically claim it doesn't really matter because the "Palestinians" will never agree to it.  First, there is no guarantee of that and second, it's dishonest and a chillul Hashem to say you'd do it if you have no intention of doing it.  However, it's an even bigger chillul Hashem if you say it and you mean to do it come what may! This land is not ours to give away and it violates many Torah laws even to discuss it.

NETANYAHU IS A CRIMINAL according to Torah law, so let's not hear any more about how great and wonderful he is.  He's a treacherous snake and he will oversee our demise if Mashiach delays too long.

And TRUMP IS NO FRIEND OF JEWS no matter how much American and Americanized Israeli Jews protest.  He answers only to his Erev Rav advisors and his Evangelical base who are only interested in reestablishing a strong Christian population in Israel and freedom to missionize Israeli Jews to their hearts' content.  None of these people are "friends" of Jews or of Israel.  The land is meaningless to them except as a stage for their false messiah's second coming.

If you have a problem with anything I have said here, then you may not be as ready to greet Mashiach as you think.  There won't be any compromise on Torah with Mashiach Tzidkeinu and no discussion of, much less actual, giveaways of our Holy Land!!

ANYONE!! who supports the establishment of a Palestinian State on any part of our Holy Promised Land is an ENEMY of Israel - Eisav, Yishmael, Amalek, Erev Rav or even kosher Jew!!

Netanyahu has proudly proclaimed: "Only once in history does such an opportunity present itself, and we must not miss it." Our "once-in-history" opportunity came in June 1967 and it was squandered. It was when all the land Netanyahu now wishes to give away to goyim was returned to us by our Father in Heaven.

Make no mistake! The time is fast approaching when we will secure those lands as well as other lands yet to come back to us - again, returned by our loving Father in Heaven, but this time, we will have Mashiach here with us and he will not let the opportunity be missed!!! (See: Will the Third Messianic War Arrive with Mashiach ben Yosef?)

Gog uMagog Happening NOW!

29 Tevet 5780
Yom Kippur Katan
Erev Rosh Chodesh Shevat
Shavua Tov!

Three bombshells have hit and I only have time to discuss one of them tonight...
  • The price Netanyahu has paid to get Na'ama Issachar back (and she has still not been released)
  • Why a virus with a 4% mortality rate is being hyped and treated like one with a 50% mortality rate
  • How the Holocaust conference evokes Gog uMagog
God willing, maybe we'll get back to the first two during the week ahead.  Meanwhile, I'd like to begin discussion of the third with a quote from a comment I received last week in advance of the conference just held this past Thursday in Jerusalem.
Anonymous     21/1/20 4:37 AM

Do we really think the global elite would gather for a pity party for dead Jews? To pay respects? to honor the dead?
The truth is that this is a high powered cocktail party for the global elite. And a gathering of the global elite cannot mean good things for the Jewish people.

It would not surprise me in the least if behind the scenes, the "deal of the century" is being finalized to impose on the Jewish people. All the major Esavian players are there.

Esau SONEI Yaakov. ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Why can't we figure it out yet????
"The Deal of the Century."  Of course, and they couldn't even wait for the conference to conduct its business before making the announcement.  
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz were invited on Thursday to come to Washington on Tuesday next week for the presentation of U.S. President Donald Trump's "Deal of the Century" Middle East peace plan.
Clearly, the two things are connected.  And both things are part of a war meant to remove us from the face of the earth.  It's another stage of the Gog uMagog War which has been waged upon us since WWI.  
Leaders of 46 countries, far more than have ever been in Israel at one time, are expected to participate in the event hosted by President Reuven Rivlin and Yad Vashem. (Source)

Groundbreaking: Senior Saudi Religious Leader and Muslim Leaders From 24 Countries Visit Auschwitz  (Source)
Eisav in Jerusalem and Yishmael at Auschwitz, on the same day: 46 + 24 = 70 nations which is also the gematria of Gog uMagog! 

[Note that Erev Rav Kushner was with the Saudis at Auschwitz while Super-Xian Pence was in Jerusalem saying Kaddish!]

If initial reports are correct that Trump's "plan" will allow 30% of Judea and Samaria to remain under Israeli control, that still means that 70%! will be recognized by the world powers as the Palestinian State!!  

From there it is only a matter of time.  If Israel does not completely succumb to the rampant assimilation of massive numbers of goyim being funneled into the state, the growing power and encroachment of Palestine on the doorstep will finish it off.

The only way they are going to get Abbas' and Hamas' cooperation with this "plan" is to give them "East" Jerusalem for their capital.  In all his speeches about the US "recognition" of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Trump made it clear he was speaking only of "West" Jerusalem: "recognizing facts on the ground; not predetermining Jerusalem's final status, etc."

However, the plan may now be to use this as an opportunity to provoke a larger war with Iran and the Arabs surrounding Israel, knowing they won't - they can't - accept the terms, if it means conceding all of Jerusalem to Israeli hands. See...
US builds up Mid-East strength against rising tension over “Deal of the Century" and Iran
Only Hashem knows where all of this is leading, but as our anonymous commenter quoted above reminds us, we know that nothing Eisav does is for the good of the Jews because Eisav soneh et Ya'aqov!  And that's why our Sages told us this is a law!  

We're leaving Tevet behind and heading towards the time of our redemption just as we are reading about the first redemption from Egypt in the parshiot of these weeks.  The events of those times remind us that it always looks darkest just before the dawn, that redemption is a process, and that Hashem's promise to send us a Redeemer is sure and true.  Dawn is coming.  Springtime is on its way.  Eisav and Yishmael, even with the help of the Erev Rav, cannot win.  They are doomed to failure and destruction, just like Paro and ancient Egypt.

Leaders of several additional European monarchies have indicated unofficially that they will soon confirm their attendance.

Senior Officials from the United States of America are also expected.

The White House announced Wednesday that Pence and his wife, Karen, would attend the Fifth World Holocaust Forum at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, in Jerusalem on Jan. 23.

"French President, Emmanuel Macron will be staying in the King David Hotel. Britain's Prince Charles will also he hosted at the King David Hotel.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will be staying at the David Citadel Hotel.

Because the American delegation was late in confirming their attendance, both Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel."

Each head of state arriving will be met by Foreign Ministry director-general Yuval Rotem and a cabinet minister. While ministers often have to be implored to perform such tasks, Haiat said that this time there are plenty of volunteers, especially to meet one of the four kings or two princes arriving.

Terminal 1 will be shut down to commercial flights, and every time a leader leaves the airport to his or her hotel, Highway 1 will be closed to traffic. Repeated road closures are expected throughout Jerusalem next week as well, such as when the leaders go from their hotels to the President’s Residence and back on Tuesday evening, or to the Yad Vashem event and back on Wednesday.

“This is not a week to be in Jerusalem if you don’t have to be,” one Foreign Ministry source remarked.

The President’s Residence will be “stretched to its maximum capacity” for next week’s event, Tubi said.

Spotlight on Israel - Not Good

15 Tevet 5780

At whose behest are news sources (NBC, NYT, Reuters) painting a target on Israel's back and why? And why would the informants be exposed like this?
The Reuters news agency reported Thursday that a series of Syrian and Iraqi informants are suspected of providing the US with the information that led to Soleimani’s killing.

The suspected informants — two security employees at Baghdad airport and two workers in private Syrian airline Cham Wings — gave the intelligence about Soleimani’s secret flight from Damascus to Baghdad, the report said, quoting security officials, Baghdad airport employees and Cham Wings employees.  (TOI)

The Moon Is A Sign

13 Tevet 5780
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Vayechi

We were just talking about the Moon over HERE.  And now the full moon of Tevet is almost upon us - motzaei Shabbat.  However, it already looks nearly full now.  Anything can happen.

Thanks to Esser Agarot, we have warning of an ominous sign from Heaven.  There is to be a penumbral lunar eclipse TONIGHT!

Unlike a partial or total lunar eclipse, where a larger proportion of light is blocked, during a penumbral lunar eclipse, the shading of the moon gets a little darker

According to EarthSky, it is expected to be the deepest and, therefore, most noticeable of the four penumbral lunar eclipses scheduled for this year. (Source)

It will be fully visible (weather allowing) in Israel, Europe, and Asia; in Australia only at Moonset, but no visibility in North or South America.

I don't know what it means precisely, but considering what Jewish sources reveal about the connection between Am Yisrael and the Moon and the current situation being what it is, it can't hurt to daven with extra kavanah and be very alert if you are out on the streets this Shabbat.

More interesting info about this full moon...
It's the time of year when the sun and moon reach their closest points to Earth, aligning the celestial bodies like a perfect cue shot to create maximum gravitation pull. The resulting extreme high and low tides, called king tides, usually occur in December and January. They're in the forecast for the Bay Area of San Francisco, California, Friday though Sunday. The level of the sea will shift some eight feet in a little over seven hours each day. The National Weather Service is predicting tides well over 6 feet in coming days. A major storm surge in the Pacific isn't expected in coming days so the flooding impact should be minimal.

The highest tide will happen on Friday at 10:22 a.m. and again on Saturday at 11:07 a.m., with a sea level rise of 6.7 feet. Sunday is expected to see a sea level rise of 6.6 feet at 11:54 a.m. (Global Disaster Watch)
Again, I wish for all Am Yisrael a sweet and peaceful Shabbat!

No Way Iran Is Done Retaliating

12 Tevet 5780

Apparently, some people are suffering under the delusion that Iran is done extracting vengeance for Soleimani.  That would be laughable if it weren't so dangerous.  Read this...
"Almost Inconceivable" That Attacks In Iraq Will Mark End Of Iranian Retaliation, Experts Say
As I listen to Americans talk about the power and might of their unmatched military strength, I keep coming back to the Prophet Ovadia's words in the name of Hashem...
The wickedness of your heart enticed you, who dwell in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high, who says to himself, "Who will bring me down to the earth?"

If you go up high like an eagle, and if you place your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down, says the Lord.
May Hashem spare the righteous!

"Death Comes From the Sky"

11 Tevet 5780

In 2005, I had a dream that seemed to me to be of a prophetic nature, but although I've talked about it many times and many times thought we were on the verge of its realization, it hasn't quite come about as anticipated.  However, if it is destined to come true - God forbid! - it may really be about to happen this time.  I don't really know why it would be helpful to know unless it is giving us a chance to plead for mercy.

The full moon figured prominently in this dream as the time of its fulfillment.  I expected it could be any full moon, but maybe the fact that it is me who is seeing it points further to the fact that I have a special connection to a particular full moon.  My birthday is on the 15th of Shevat.

I rehash all this just now because of what I saw over at Debka...
February 11, Iran’s Revolution Day, marks estimated revenge timeline for Soleimani’s death

Tehran and Washington are on a straight line to collision, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. Tehran is unshakably resolved to avenge the death of its top general Qassem Soleimani, while the Americans are deep in preparations for counteraction.

...Every hour since Jan 3, when the US killed its iconic general, shows Tehran to me more intent on avenging his death, while American forces are stepping up major preparations against this collision across the Middle East and as far as the Indian Ocean.

...According to current estimates by DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources in the West and in Israel, the Iranians are deep in extremely thorough preparations for a military escalation with the US in the second week of February.

...This time frame is highly significant since on Feb. 11, the Islamic Republic celebrates the anniversary of its Shiite Revolution. An onslaught on the US military would be the most appropriate form of celebration, in the view of its current leaders – especially in Iraq, where the American presence stands in the way of dominating their most coveted territory of influence.

...Mohsein Rezaei, Expediency Council secretary and adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, said at Tehran’s huge Monday ceremony: “Iran’s revenge against America for the assassination of Soleimani will be severe … Haifa and Israeli military centers will be included in the retaliation.”
February 11 just happens to be the 16th day of Shevat - still a full moon. And we don't believe in coincidences.

Following below is a detailed description of this dream for those who were not readers back in 2012 when this was originally posted.

13 Cheshvan 5772

What can I say? It's scary, but I'm not afraid. I know Who is in control. But, Iran is very much on my mind as it probably is for all the thinking people of the world. Everyone must on some level sense that something really big is looming. I feel like the last few weeks have been the quiet before the storm. That's why I kept expecting something - something coming from the skies.

I had an unusual dream in March of 2005 - before Aza became a launching base for Hamas missiles in late 2005; before Hezbollah rained down missiles on northern Israel in 2006 and even before Achmadinejad was elected president of Iran. This is how I described it in an email to a friend in April 2005:

It was night-time and I was in a high place overlooking the coastal plain. (The way it looks from Hwy 1 at Sha'ar Haggai, except it was a completely unobstructed view). I could clearly see the city lights from Ashkelon all the way to Haifa. In the area of Tel Aviv-Herzliya, the lights formed a grid of Stars-of-David.

Something bright in the corner of my left eye caught my attention and when I looked, at first, it was a star and then it was the full Moon with wings and it was hovering. As I looked at it, a death's head (skull) spread across it's face as if it was turning from facing the west to look at me. Suddenly it shot off in the direction of the coast, moving from east to west and the words "death comes from the sky" entered my mind.

I was outside under pine trees like in the Jerusalem forest and it was night-time. A woman wearing a snood came along and told me we had to quickly get into shelters underground and I went down a ladder into a hole in the ground, but I felt that we were safe there.

Immediately upon awakening, I had a clear sense of the dream's meaning.

The high place where I am protected is Jerusalem. The connection between the stars of David and Tel Aviv-Herzliya is this---stars of David are the traditional symbol for the modern secular state of Israel and their connection to the Tel Aviv-Herzliya area is obvious. Tel Aviv represents Israeli materialism and abandonment of G-d - the secular state that wants to be like all the other nations. It is where the Defense department is located and from where Israel's wars are managed, signifying reliance on military might. Jerusalem is its opposite---Jewishness as opposed to Israeliness; spirituality and clinging to G-d.

The "flying from east to west" indicates that the danger is coming from the east. It is a missile attack---missiles will rain down from the sky. It could be from Arabs in the cities of Shomron, but my sense was that it would be Iran---Iranian missiles.

The Moon is indicating the time of the attack---the full moon.

So, what intrigues me the most about this dream is that, at that time, there was no logical reason to make an association with Iran. And while the coast from Ashkelon and south and from Haifa and north have been hit, until today, the area betwen Ashkelon and Haifa - which I saw in the dream - has not been hit by missiles.

Today's news is reporting that Israel will attack Iran's nuclear facilities with logistical support from the US either next month or soon after the first of the year 2012. We've been hearing this off and on it seems like forever. I remember when April 2006 was being touted as doomsday for Iran. But, since the IAEA report which came out late Tuesday, the Israeli government now has carte blanche to attack Iran, which it did not possess before. The world is no longer denying that Iran has intent to build and use nuclear weapons.

However, I do not believe that it will happen this way. I have every expectation of an Iranian pre-emptive strike - just like in my dream. If they become convinced that an attack is imminent, why would they wait for it? They believe G-d is on their side. They do not have to consider the political ramifications. Furthermore, if they are to be the ones who bring down Edom, as our sources indicate, they must do so from a position of strength which would not be possible in the aftermath of an Israeli or NATO coalition first-strike.

I am of the opinion, as are others, that Iran already has one or two nukes in reserve that were sold to them by North Korea. (They are the only ones who possess such weapons who are cash-strapped enough to risk it.) I think our government will be caught unawares and this failure, among others, will lead to the downfall of the Erev Rav-lead secular state. (More on that later, iy"H.)

Today, Uncle Sam may think he is going to contribute intelligence and logistical support from the sidelines, but the Creator has in mind to draw him firmly into the thick of it. ("...for I have brought Eisav's calamity upon him, the time when I will call him to account. ...Bozrah will be made desolate, a shame, a ruin and a curse; and all its towns will suffer eternal destruction." Yirmiyahu 49:8, 13)

How might that happen? As I said yesterday, it looks as if the world is being painted into a corner where East and West will end up in the ultimate showdown and Jewish sources corroborate this. (More on this later, too, G-d willing. Time is pressing.)

Bear in mind that the 15th of the month of Cheshvan is Shabbat Kodesh, but the moon will appear to be "full" for a day or two either side of that date. Also, bear in mind that the 17th of Cheshvan is the anniversary of the worldwide deluge - the Mabul -the Flood of Noah.

There are two ways to kasher utensils, either by water or by fire. G-d once purified the world in water and at the End of Days, He will purify it with fire.

Rabbi Mizrachi on Running Away to Israel

11 Tevet 5780
"Jews of the United States will be forced to flee like fugitives, because those who survived the weather disasters will not be able to survive the tremendeous waves of hatred against them.

The survivors will arrive in Israel with only the clothes on their backs and Moshiach ben Yosef will reach out to help them."   (Yehudit's Prophecy)

Cyberspace Is Buzzing

10 Tevet 5780

Here is hoping and praying that our fasting, prayers and teshuvah will be accepted on high and that it will be enough to render the decision of the beit din shel malah in favor of rebuilding the Beit HaMikdash this year!

Rav Yoshiyahu Pinto reportedly said on Hoshanah Rabbah that he feels very strongly that in the days and weeks to come the world situation is going to change completely.  Someone will be killed, someone very well-known in the world... [I couldn't make out the rest, nor could I clearly hear Rav Pinto's words.  If anyone can offer a better summary, please do so in the comments. [Listen HERE.]  (h/t/ JK)

At Hanukkah, a 9-yr-old Israeli boy had three successive dreams of Rav Ovadia Yosef telling him to publicize to the Jews that Mashiach is about to be revealed and the Beit HaMikdash is about to descend and we will welcome the geulah shleimah.  Everyone needs to know that there's no more time.  [Listen HERE.]  (h/t JK)

Although I no longer endorse the messages of the autistic boys simply because I no longer know what to think about them, for those who are still interested in what they have to say, Daniel and Binyamin have issued similar warnings in the past couple of months. [See HERE.]

Shirat Devorah's most recent blog post makes note of the fact that Trump has threatened Iran with hits to 52 of their sites and that 52 is also the gematria of Magog.  I noted that Drudge shared a headline about 52 jets participating in a training exercise, but Air Force authorities denied that number was anything more than a coincidence.  If so, then it's also a 'coincidence' that 52 is double the number of Hashem's 4-Letter Name.  That says to me that Hashem is the one orchestrating all of it.

Rabbi Glazerson has several new videos on Torah Codes which you may peruse HEREwith one dealing specifically with the event of The Iranian General Suleimani's death, which follows below.

If I recall correctly from previous lessons, the decree which was determined on Yom Kippur  is sealed on Hoshanah Rabbah, but does not become final, as someone once told me, it doesn't go in the mail, until Hanukkah.  Until then it can be changed for the good.

If so, then we can understand why the world has suddenly entered a brand new phase since the end of the Hanukkah holiday.  And it would appear that not enough people did proper teshuvah from love of HKB"H, so that now the fear from a Third World War might be employed to bring it about, as explained by our sages: "Rabbi Eliezer holds that if they do not repent, Hashem will raise up a king as harsh as Haman and then they will repent."  

Just keep repeating: "Ayn od milevado."
