As mentioned months ago with regard to the "nine months" of Rome/Edom's global control (see An Assessment of the Nine-Month Global Rule of Wicked Rome), it's difficult to pinpoint the day the count begins and consequently, when it should also end. But, a good case can be made for March 11, 2020 - December 11, 2020, i.e. Purim to Hanukkah!
[See further Purim on Hanukkah? Gog u Magog?]
It will be a very positive sign if they are unable to lock us down on Hanukkah. Even though this is their plan, if they do fail to lock us down on Hanukkah, it will be the first time since Purim that we were free on a holiday.
..It is written in the Zohar, that Chevlei Moshiach will be divided into two separate periods: a period of seventy years... and a period of nine months...In the last nine months of the golus, the troubles shall greatly increase, and, at the end of this period, there will be a great fear, and then the Moshiach will be revealed.
Despite the fact that we have been looking for a war between Iran and Edom, with Israel smack in the middle of it, for literally years now, we've never been as close to it as we are today. This war will certainly cause "great fear" for the whole world and Mashiach will be revealed at that time, because the main powers who would try to stop him will be otherwise occupied.
"It’s a fateful moment for the entire Middle East."
And the whole world.

You remember The Plummers - the "Bishop of Israel" and his wife, "The First Lady of Israel"?
They were the ones the government allowed to "make aliya" while the rest of us were locked down and Jews were not allowed to enter the country to visit their families.
The Church of God in Chr*st (COGIC) sent them here to build black churches for the Ethiopian immigrants "because they are their black brothers." And also, to bring a lot of black Americans to Israel to make "business" relationships. Basically, more and more assimilation and more and more Christian "aliyah" in order to push for yet more and more Christian "rights" in our Jewish land!
When told that they are Jews and brothers to their fellow Jews, he's like no they're our brothers because they are black like us and we have to save them from racist Israelis. The racism in Israel is terrible don't you know?
When counter-missionary groups in Israel pushed back against this agenda by making it very publicly known, this Plummer dude got very hot under the collar. How dare the Jews object to anything he wants to do, don't we know who he is and "how much he has done for Israel?"
Geulah Girl, the author of the Esav Exposed blog wrote on Facebook...
They are waging a spiritual war against us and when we dare call him out for it, we are the enemy and he is innocent. Since 2008 several of us warned that while these xians seemed nice with no agenda that was just to get close to the Jewish people and to get into Israel but eventually they will show their true agenda to convert Jews and then we would be faced with an enemy that would be a 5th column within Israel. It would have been better to say thanks, but no thanks 10 - 20 years ago than to have yet another enemy within our borders.
Can't be a Jewish state and democratic. The democratic gov says freedom of religion. The Jewish [Torah] says no avoda zara.
I can vouch for the veracity of and the care with which the videos he mentions as "doctored" were done. Furthermore, nobody I know is stupid enough, or cares enough, to write "death threats". We prefer to force the government to act to protect our weakest elements of society from missionary activity. Since this Plummer dude is already lying about what he already stated was his agenda in coming here to Israel, trying to back out of it now that he shot his mouth off and spilled the beans, why would I be remiss in thinking he probably faked death threats to impugn the "Orthodox" Jews they all so clearly abhor because we continue to reject their god-man idol.
This 8-min video shows the true face of our Eisavian enemy...

Sharing from Rabbi Yehudah Richter...

...When the pandemic started, I thought we were all in this together. The government was doing their best to save lives and was figuring it out as they went along. Some people still trust the draconian mandates and believe that the government has only our best interest in mind. I am no longer one of those people.While the CDC/WHO have already admitted that masks do not prevent the spread of illness, the Israeli government continues to doggedly hand out tickets to citizens who try to get a bit of fresh air. They have even started going undercover in rental cars so they can sneak up on more people. They’ve already handed out over half a million tickets! Why would they stop this mandate? It’s a windfall. (Let’s do the math. Each ticket was at least 500nis. Multiply that by 500,000, and you get 2.5 Billion Shekel, and counting.)But there are other big problems. Let’s take a look at the timeline of the past half a year. It paints a remarkably ominous picture.The pandemic apparently spreads to (your location) and the government takes action:
- Schools are closed.
- Yeshivos are closed.
- Shuls are closed – no davening with a minyan.
- No Kriyas hatora.
- Men’s mikvaos are closed.
- Shockingly, in certain places some women are banned from entering mikvaos. (If their husbands committed the vile crime of davening with a minyan
- No visiting the elderly, so forget about visiting your own parents or grandparents or grandchildren – no hugging Bubby or Zeidy. (Only a rodef would be reckless enough to go near his Zeidy.)
- One of the worst aveiros you can commit is the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim (a sick person is himself a rodef who deserves to languish alone in misery just for the crime of falling ill).
- No weddings, bar mitzvahs or family gatherings – you can see your relatives on Zoom.
- Even levayas- don’t attend unless you are the absolute next of kin.
- Nichum aveilim? Make a phone call.
- Hachnasas orchim? Today it’s a punishable crime.
- What was previously a heinous sin became a public service as “Good Samaritans” were encouraged to maser (snitch) on their fellow brothers for not following government restrictions. Reporting crimes such as breaking quarantine, attending shul, learning in yeshiva…
- On Tisha B’av and Yom Kippur, we were instructed that rather than washing our hands only when they are soiled (as the halacha states), “To prevent the spread of germs, it is muttar to wash the entire hand.”
- Later on, when shuls were allowed to reopen, people were required to wear masks while davening and reading from the Torah. The permissibility of this practice is questionable at best.
- Even children were forced to wear masks “Cruelty in the guise of kindness.”
- To prevent the spread of disease, “experts” even advised putting a mask onto the shofar.
- In a previous lifetime, people went to shul even if they weren’t feeling well- especially during the Yomim Noraim. Now, only an “evil” person would enter a shul if they had an ache or a sniffle.
- We were further instructed not to sing at shul. Singing spreads germs. Better yet don’t even daven anything out loud- to prevent “aerosolizing” your germs.
- Don’t kiss any mezuzos, and of course don’t kiss the Torah, chas vishalom.
- We were told not to dance on Simchas Torah, but to “sway” in place, at least 2 meters from our neighbor. Better yet, if you really want to fulfill the mitzvah of vinishmartem stay home!At first I thought the outdoor “Pop-up” shuls were nice and convenient, but eventually their beauty started to tarnish. There are halachos about how a shul is supposed to be constructed. An indoor shul is ideal, and yet outdoor shuls have been favored to prevent the spread of contagion. Is it necessary to bend the Torah to fit it into the public health doctrine? Are we really justified in doing so?We were told to get tested for Covid 19 as frequently as possible. That if we do so, things will go back to normal. We’ll be able to open shuls and schools again. Instead, governments have been using our compliance against us. More testing will invariably lead to an increase in cases in any community, which will then give the government the justification to force us to shut down over and over again. All these oppressive restrictions were enacted with almost total cooperation of religious society world-wide.Why did we go along with it? (Continue here.)

If the Zionist dream was to reclaim the Jewish homeland for the Jewish people and create a Jewish State where Jewish rights would be protected and Jewish aspirations could be realized, then the Zionist dream is dead. No less than the famed Jewish Agency has buried it.
Heretofore tasked with managing the aliyah of Jews the world over to the Land of Israel, the Jewish Agency is now in the business of building worship centers for Christians in the Galil and promoting the assimilation of Jews among resident non-Jews.
Following is a rough transcription of an 8-min. video (which can be viewed below) of "Ofer" (last name unknown), a non-native English speaker, employee of the Jewish Agency, addressing a group of Ugandan Christians at the Aliyah Return Center in 2019:
...What we decided in the Jewish Agency – to do here – is to build a bridge - to build a bridge between all religions. Historically, we are called the Jewish Agency, the oldest Jewish organization in the world - 90 years - but in our religion there is a big place for working with non-Jews and I guess that Chaim [Malespin] already told you we have a pre-army academy - combined Arab Christians and Jews - we are the only place doing it... We are first of all human beings and then we are Christians or Druze or Jews. So, what we are trying to do is work with all religions - with Christians and Druze and Beduins and build a bridge to make sure the State of Israel will continue to be a place of freedom, a place that everyone can find himself. It doesn't matter if you are black or white or yellow or red, or Christian or Jew or Muslim. It doesn't matter. As long as you are a human being you can be part of this place.
...I heard you have a Prayer Mountain [in Uganda], hopefully I'll be there soon. We decided to build here a Prayer Valley - for you (applause). You have a Prayer Mountain. We decided to build - actually for you - a Prayer Valley. We're going to take the north and west side of the valley of this property and make it a huge [unintelligible] that you can come and pray. "Galilee of the Nations" - I would like you to spread the rumor that you have a house, a home, here in Israel... Hopefully, I'll see you more and more, and a lot of times, Bring your couples and your children - this is your home....

Erev Shabbat Kodesh
"I loved you," said Hashem, and you said, "How have you loved us?" Was not Esau a brother of Jacob - the words of Hashem - yet I loved Jacob. But, I hated Esau and I made his mountains a desolation, and his heritage for the desert serpents.
Though Edom said, "We have become destitute, but we shall return and rebuild the ruins"; so said Hashem, Master of Legions, "They may build, but I shall tear down; they shall call them, 'the boundary of wickedness, and the people who infuriated Hashem to eternity.' Your eyes shall see and you shall say, 'Hashem is great beyond the boundary of Israel.'" (Haftarah Toldot, Malachi 1.2-5)From the Stone Edition Chumash Commentary...
Through Shem, God conveyed to [Rivkah] that the unborn infants represented two nations and two conflicting ideologies - Israel and Edom - and that their struggle in the womb symbolized the future rivalries between them, which would end with the younger prevailing over the older (R' Hoffmann). Thus, the turmoil within her was due to the irreconcilable conflict between two nations that was already taking shape (Mizrachi).
The Sages teach that the two of them will never be mighty simultaneously; when one falls, the other will rise (Megillah 6a). History has demonstrated this prophecy in practice. Two regimes, one espousing morality and justice and the other standing for license and barbarity, cannot long coexist. They must always be in conflict until one comes to dominate the other, whether through victory on the battlefield or in the contest for men's minds.

Recently, I wrote an update on what is going on at the "National Leadership Center" (JH-Israel) in Ariel. More information has now come out.
To briefly recap, this is a "faith-based" [Christian] effort. It replicates a facility built first in California (JH Ranch) and then exported from the USA to Israel. They have an exclusive agreement with the Erev Rav regime (Ministry of Education) to be the only ones to offer this 'service' in Israel, whereby, they seek to have every soldier and every school child (starting age 12!) in the nation run through their indoctrination center. There, they are to be influenced and trained as future leaders in accordance with the goals and agenda of the sponsors.
At first, it appeared to be just another missionary ploy. They talk a lot about teaching Israeli youth to understand their identity and bring sources from the Tanach. That would be bad enough considering that the Jewish Tanach taught from a warped Christian perspective to Israeli youth is a catastrophe in itself, but it's much more than that.
Again, the National Leadership Center in Ariel is run by JH Israel who works in collaboration with the U.S. Israel Education Association.
USIEA has established uniquely significant and meaningful ties with Israeli leaders. These include the Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, and leaders in the areas of local government, science, education, military and business. USIEA values the Judeo-Christian heritage and both the historical and spiritual significance of Israel; therefore, our relationships are based on deep mutual respect and open dialogue.
The hope-giving mission of the Integrated Business Roundtable is deeply rooted in the practical work of the Judea and Samaria Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the vision of its founding partners, Avi Zimmerman and Sheikh Ashraf Jabari.Mr. Zimmerman is a well-respected advocate for regional economic development, having led foreign investments and development for over 10 years in the city of Ariel, the vibrant capital city of Samaria. In January 2020, Avi transitioned out of his leadership post, with Mayor Shaviro’s blessing, to become President of the Integrated Business Roundtable with its broader mandate to advocate for economic development for the whole of Judea and Samaria.Sheikh Jabari resides in Judea, in the city of Hebron, and traces his family lineage in the region back more than 800 years. He recalls much more fruitful times prior to the forced segregation and transportation constraints resulting from the Oslo Accords, when it was normal and profitable for Jewish and Palestinian neighbors to trade and conduct business with each other. Ashraf is a strong, eloquent proponent of supporting and accelerating the growth of Integrated Businesses in the region and raising standards of living for Palestinians while political solutions are worked out.Since inception in 2017, the JS Chamber has grown to serve over 500 business members. Today it comprises over 250 Palestinian-owned businesses, 250 Israeli-owned businesses, and dozens of Integrated Businesses. Arising from the strong reputations and deep relationships of its founders, the Chamber has a well-deserved reputation for fairly serving all members.In 2018, the Chamber engaged the Milken Innovation Center* at the Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research to create a strategic roadmap to guide the Chamber called the Regional Development Financing Initiative (“RDFI”). The Milken Center is an internationally recognized expert in development strategy for emerging economies and the effective use of impact investments as a catalyst.The resulting RDFI provides a broad-based assessment that takes full account of long-standing development challenges in the region, including the anti-normalization bans on commerce from the Palestine Authority on the one hand, and the transportation limitations and restrictions rooted in Israel’s security policy on the other.While clear-headed about long-broken elements of the regional economy, the Milken Center’s report also identifies areas of strength for the Chamber to grow and build upon. The RDFI cites a motivated, entrepreneurial business community; a substantial and available workforce in proximity to Tel Aviv; and a growing base of pragmatic integrated businesses. From this foundation, the RDFI outlined five areas for focused development and investment as most attractive for the region.
- Technology and Industry, including the emerging Innovation Ecosystem
- Environmental Renewal
- Commerce and Service
- Cultural and Recreational Tourism
- Transportation and Infrastructure
- In February 2019, Mr. Zimmerman, Sheikh Jabari and IBR founding partner, the US Israel Education Association (USIEA), hosted the first ever Israeli Palestinian International Economic Forum in Ariel.On this internationally prominent and shared stage, Avi and Ashraf showcased the Chamber’s growth, the impactful RDFI plan from the Milken Center, and, perhaps most importantly, innovative initiatives from the region’s base of integrated businesses that offer a hope-giving path to shared prosperity for Israelis and Palestinians alike.Notably, the first Forum was attended by US Senator James Lankford and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman. Both US officials made prepared remarks at the Forum and expressed strong support for the Chamber and its strategy to improve living standards through greater direct investment in Integrated Businesses in the region.The success and momentum of the Forum crystallized an important next step – creating infrastructure for local and international businesspeople to come alongside the Chamber with experience, mentorship, and capital to invest.In late 2019, the Sagamore Institute, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, joined the Chamber and USIEA as a founding partner to help create the organization known today as the Integrated Business Roundtable. Sagamore is an internationally respected think tank known for its action-oriented policy innovations and its work mobilizing impact investments to repair broken economies.
["Sagamore created an impact investing platform called Commonwealth to offer innovative financial services to expand economic opportunity. Areas of focus include increasing minority entrepreneurship, improving second change employment for former prisoners, and strengthening the emerging Israeli-Palestinian economy in the West Bank.]
In January 2020, the Integrated Business Roundtable was launched. With a distinctive mission that complements the Chamber, IBR invests in ideas, events, and programs that drive business solutions for shared prosperity in Judea and Samaria. [* See also: Milken vs. Davos]
This "Leadership Center" in Ariel has ties which, if followed, take you right to the top of the pyramid.
According to a Walla News report on Thursday, Pompeo will visit the Golan Heights as well as Shomron and Yehudah during his visit to Israel, the first US secretary of state to do so. The US Secret Service, officials at the US Embassy in Jerusalem, and Israel’s Shin Bet are preparing for the historic visit.Previous U.S. high-ranking officials have always avoided visiting the Shomron and the Golan Heights due to their “disputed status.” The US recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights in March 2019 and later that year, in November, Pompeo annulled the 1978 U.S. State Department decision that Israeli “settlements” in the West Bank are “inconsistent with international law.” According to an Axios report, Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman were the driving forces behind the shift in U.S. policy toward Yehudah and Shomron.
If you haven't figured it out yet, this is nothing less than an 'internal' Abraham Accords being orchestrated between Israel and 'Palestine.' When you read "integrated" business, think integrated schools and then you will really understand what is happening here.
It's a lot about making money, but it's even more about 'integrating' Jews with Arabs in the most Jewishly-identified, religious and nationalistically-motivated population in Israel. And that is because...
INTEGRATION IS ONE STEP BEFORE ASSIMILATION.
In the previous generation, the NAZIS learned that it was impossible to physically eliminate every Jew. When the threat is so open and obvious, people are harder to control and they fight back. Therefore, they changed their tactics. In the name of Progress, Peace, Security, Health, Prosperity, Tolerance, even Ahavat Chinam, etc. they can convince the majority of Jews to cooperate with their own spiritual destruction.
THIS WAS THE PLAN OF HELLENISM DURING THE DAYS OF THE MACCABEES. IT IS ALIVE AND WELL AND THRIVING IN THE DAYS PRECEDING HANUKKAH 5781 (2020).

Something brand new has come to light. You should be aware. TPTB are so filled with gaivah and so convinced that we are powerless to stop them, they are telling us what is coming at every step of the process. They discount Ya'aqov's power of prayer and HKB"H's great love for His people.
If anyone remembers, a few years ago, the autistic boys described a situation which sounded like the grid was down with effects similar to those caused by an EMP, which was much in the news at the time. But, maybe this is what they saw.

Erev Rosh Chodesh/Yom Kippur Katan
From the Yom Kippur Katan service...
Good is Hashem to all, and His mercies are upon all His works.
Good is Hashem to those who trust in Him, to the soul that seeks Him.
Good it is to hope silently for the salvation of Hashem.
Good it is to take refuge in Hashem, much better than to rely on man.
Good it is to take refuge in Hashem, much better than to rely on nobles [politicians].
Good is Hashem and upright; therefore He guides sinners on the way.
Good is Hashem as a stronghold on the day of distress, and mindful of those who take refuge in Him.
For He knows our nature; He is mindful that we are but dust.
For Hashem is good, His kindness is forever, and His faithfulness is from generation to generation.
As a father has mercy on his children, so, Hashem, may You have mercy on us. Salvation is Hashem's; upon Your people is Your blessing. Selah. Hashem, Master of Legions, is with us, the God of Jacob is a stronghold for us. Selah. Hashem, Master of Legions, praiseworthy is the person who trusts in You. Hashem, save! May the King answer us on the day we call.

A committee at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday passed with overwhelming majorities a series of resolutions critical of Israel, lambasting the Jewish state, among other things, for ostensible human rights violations against Palestinians and “repressive measures” against Syrians in the Golan Heights.The three Arab countries with which Jerusalem recently signed normalization agreements — the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan — did not change their traditional voting pattern and supported all resolutions critical of Israel.
Opposite QualitiesOur Sages have revealed to us that Yishmoel and Edom represent the two roots of evil.Edom demonstrates its evil potential through the attribute of orderliness [seder], particularly in their so-called "culture." Seder [orderliness] is a product of the attribute of building: the ability to take separate parts and fashion them together in order to fulfill a uniform purpose or to meet a particular goal. Arrogance is a natural outgrowth of this quality (as can be found in the regime of Nazi Germany and in other nations associated with Edom). We have explained above (Chapter 4), that arrogance is the main character trait of Edom.At the other end of the spectrum is the manner in which Yishmoel activates his evil potential, by means of chaotic destruction and elimination of orderliness (see Chapter 2). As is written in the Torah (Bereishis 16:12), "And he will be a wild [pere] person, his hand on everything and everyone's hand upon him." Rashi explains (ibid.): "'His hand on everything - they are thieves. 'And everyone's hand is upon him' - Everyone hates them and antagonizes them."Pere versus SederWe thus see that these two nations, Edom and Yishmoel, have diametrically opposed characteristics - seder/order versus pere/wildness.
Therefore, when they rise up and take action, it is only "natural" that it results in their clashing with each other. Clearly, this is the ostensible reason for the antagonism between Edom and Yishmoel at the beginning of the war of Gog and Magog.Let us delve deeper into this issue. The Ramchal (in his sefer on the Torah Bamidbar) writes that the war of Gog and Magog will bring about the nullification of the forces of evil in this world. This is the reason, writes Rav Yitzchak Isaac Chaver, that immediately prior to their elimination, these two forces will attempt to strengthen their position by provoking the opposite force. They will both strengthen themselves to the maximum extent possible, before they are completely removed from the world! This follows the natural order of things in this world. We know, for example, that a candle's light becomes greater just before it is extinguished (Biurei Aggodos, Afikei Yam on Sanhedrin 98b).
If it is a fact, as it is being reported in some places, that the Abraham Accords is all about forming a coalition of Arab states to follow the US into a war with Iran, they'd better act fast. These Yishmaelim will not be able to pretend for very long.

Erev Shabbat Kodesh
As our world tumbles down into the abyss reached by others before us - the generation of the Great Flood, the generation of the Tower of Bavel; the generation of Sodom and Amorrah - there is a lot of discussion going on about who is righteous and who will survive and who deserves to be rescued by HKB"H and how. It is no coincidence that since the mention of Gog uMagog at Sukkot, we have been reading the parashiot that deal davka with these events. If it is of real concern to us, we cannot do better than let the words of the parashah and its meforshim impress their truths upon our souls.
Taken from the Stone Edition Chumash Commentary:
...So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, and the betrothed of his daughters, and he said, "Get up and leave this place; for Hashem is about to destroy the city!" But he seemed like a jester in the eyes of his sons-in-law....By their impudence, Lot's sons-in-law had lost their chance to be saved, so the angels insisted that Lot hurry and take his wife and single daughters, for if he delayed, the lethal downpour would begin and it would be too late for him.This illustrates a common principle of God's conduct, one that is often encountered in history: Someone who is totally righteous - an Abraham, for example - may be saved by miracles even when everything around him is crashing down. Less righteous people may be granted an opportunity to save themselves from impending doom, but once the destruction begins, they will be caught up in the general carnage. Thus, Lot deserved to leave Sodom, whether in his own merit or Abraham's.... However, he could be saved only before the upheaval began, but not from its midst. Furthermore, neither he nor the others in his entourage were entitled to witness the fate of the other Sodomites and still remain unscathed. Thus, when Lot's wife turned around to see the horrors that her fellows were suffering, she, too, died.
We know already from last week's parashah that Lot went to Sodom in the first place because he chose materialism over spirituality, and that is why, despite being Avraham's nephew, his righteousness was considered lacking.

Is it not ironic that the terrorist who murdered him belonged to a group that tried to bomb the World Trade Center three years later, a feat that would eventually be accomplished in 2001? I doubt the rabbi ever imagined that twenty years of Nefesh b'Nefesh would pass during which any Jew who wanted to could get assistance in making aliyah by choice rather than by having to run for their lives, or how very few would seize that opportunity.
He saw clearly what is happening today* because the seeds were sprouting then. Here are some excerpts from that final speech which was recorded in a small book called "...So You Shoot the Messenger":
"...Say the bitter truth, even though they won't like you. They won't like you, they'll attack you, but tell the Jews the truth if you love them. If you love Jews, tell them the things which will make them angry, but which can save their lives. That's what you have to do! Think carefully about what I am saying, and that is why we created this group called ZEERO, Zionist Emergency Evacuation Rescue Organization. It's a name that provokes. And we hope that as we spread this idea it will provoke Jewish leaders to attack so we can debate the controversy that arises. People will say he's right, he's wrong, and so on. Of course, this is probably the worst thing you can ever tell any Jewish leaders, any Federation leader - that he should leave here and go to Israel. What'll he do there?
I know what the Federation (leader) is. He can't speak Hebrew. What'll he do there? So what they do is what the German Jewish leaders did - they deceived the Jews. "How many Nazis are there?" That's what they said. That's absurd. The question is not how many Nazis are there, but how many potential Nazis are there. This is the question. How many of them think exactly like them, but for various reasons don't say it. What happens when things become unbearable and they have nothing to lose and they do say it and they do march and they do give support and they do give power?The rabbis say: "Who is wise? He who sees the future." It's no big deal to see "today." A Jewish leader has to see tomorrow. That was the greatness of Jabotinsky - that was what made him different from all the others. It's no greatness to be able to look at something and say, "I see it." The greatness is to look beyond that and say, "I see what is coming." That was Jabotinsky's greatness. That's what made him so special and so different and that is why he was so hated. And that is why it is so easy to say that he's crazy - because he sees something and others don't see it - so it's easy to say, "He's crazy!"...The greatness of a Jew is, if he studies Torah properly, he is able to see beyond now. The greatness of a Jew is, if he studies Torah properly, he is able to see because he is given concepts and they enable him to see tomorrow. ...If you study Torah properly, there it is! It says so! But you have to want to believe it and not deceive yourself.It is coming here! It is coming here! Friday night I spoke in Brooklyn in shul, and I had to walk through Bensonhurst, a white neighborhood - nice people, because they're white... Watching the people, the kids, you can smell the violence, you can see the hate, you can see the envy - frustrated, bored, looking for action. You can see it. Those are the potential mobs. And, G-d forbid, we will see it. So ZEERO is a very special project of Kach, and I mean a serious one. And I know how hard it is to go to Israel - it is really hard. Hard to make a living. My son goes into the army every single year. It's dangerous and so on. All of it [is true]. Everything, that's all true. That's all true. It's hard to live in Israel, but it will be impossible to live here; and if we go to Israel, at least there we can change the country. Of course we can change it and make it better and make it tremendous and make it safe. Of course we can do that if we have the power of government, but here there is nothing you can do to change it, it's out of our hands. We are a minority and we are strangers here. We're strangers in this land, no matter how many years we've been here.
...Basically, we're an ideological movement. Of course, we are in politics, Knesset. But, basically the Knesset for us is merely an instrument to carry out our ideas. It's a vehicle, so as to carry out our ideal. And that's what ZEERO is. ZEERO won't have the money, funds, capacity or ability to create Aliyah, but it will give the idea, and indeed, my whole life has been ideas which eventually were taken up by other people and succeeded. And that's the whole purpose of it.
From the Introduction, the words of his son Binyamin, ztz"l, Hy"d, also murdered, and for the same reason, ten years later. These words were spoken in honor of his father's first yahrtzeit...
...This final speech was given at a ZEERO ... conference, a new organization he founded urging Americans to make "emergency Aliyah" before the Holocaust that will G-d forbid, befall them.In many respects, this last speech epitomizes the greatness of Rabbi Kahane. He raised and fought for unpopular issues that seemed futile, ignoring the fact that people would get angry. Here was the American Jew, fat and content to be sitting in the fleshpots, while the watchman of our times sees the ground trembling beneath them. But they neither understand nor want to, and after the question and answer period, when, as usual, they approach him to ask still more questions; as he is patiently answering them, trying to connect to them and to move them - during these moments his soul is taken.The murder occurred at 9:00 P.M. New York time. It immediately made the major headlines both in Israel and abroad. Everyone, including those who hated and banned him were stunned. They, too, knew that a true Jewish leader had fallen. But, what they knew in their hearts they could not show outwardly. In their filthy and slanderous newspaper articles and broadcasts, they continued their asinine and savage attacks, as if to abuse the corpse that had shouted the truth at them for so many years..."For He will avenge His servants' blood. He will bring vengeance upon His foes, and reconcile His people to His land" (Deut. 32:43)
Rabbi Meir and Rabbi Binyamin were murdered because they were deemed too dangerous to be allowed to live. And what was so dangerous about them? What made them different? It was THE IDEA! THE JEWISH IDEA!! Because you may be able to "shoot the messenger," but...
YOU CAN'T KILL THE IDEA!!!

(NOTE: This was written on October 30, 2020 to be published on the day of the election.)
The Russia investigation, the impeachment trial, the obsession with Israel, BLM, the flaunting of COVID restrictions - it all amounts to a great bit of theater to keep the masses distracted, entertained and to feel even more committed to their 'unjustly' embattled leader. That is for the Republicans. For the Democrats, it all amounted to a great bit of theater to keep their masses distracted, entertained and to feel more committed than ever to (en)forcing the change they want to see. For four years, it has galvanized the masses to be occupied with anything but coming together to fight the real threat to the existence of the Republic. Everybody loses in this election, except maybe Trump.
I predict a Trump 'win' because (1) he hasn't finished the job yet - no one is more 'qualified' to represent arrogant and audacious Edom at the End of Days and to preside over its demise; (2) it's not up to the voters, it's a pre-arranged outcome; and (3) Hashem is going to show the Jews just how vituperative, scurrilous and perfidious Trump really is - all who put their trust in man will be shamed:
"So says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his arm,...." (Yirmiyahu 17.5)
And it will be Mashiach who reveals his true character vis a vis The Jews. "How dare you ungrateful Jews... after all I did for Israel..." Even though his people lost no opportunity to declare publicly that whatever they did "for Israel" was really for the favor of his Evangelical base, who also have ulterior motives for supporting Israel. But, when Mashiach takes charge of this country, look out, because this is what will bring all the nations against us.
Let me reiterate here that my views on Trump, which have never changed, are in no way a reflection of support for his opposition. They are both sleaze bags! And neither party's platform reflects the will of the Creator for mankind. I don't endorse anyone who stands opposed to HKB"H and right now, like in the time of Avraham Avinu, that seems to be the majority of the world. Nevertheless, regardless of who holds the office, HKB"H HOLDS ALL OF THE POWER!
The truly G-d-fearing and righteous people have to withdraw from it all and attach 100% to HKB"H. And that makes it all the more scary how many rabbis and religiously-observant Jews are attaching themselves to some form of Edomite tumah, whether it be right or left, doesn't matter a bit.
IN THE FUTURE ESAU WILL DON A TALLITIn the future, Esau will wrap himself in a tallis, sit down next to Ya'akov and say to him, "You are my brother"....Ya'akov will say to him, "My brother, you will not be like me. I will lead you to death, I will be the pestilence that leads you to She'ol (Hoshea 13,14). Had I upheld decrees that you promulgated against me, I would have been guilty at the eyes of Heaven. Had I violated them, you would have killed me (Yalkut Shimoni, Yirmiahu 333).
"That was Esau's intention when he told Ya'akov, 'Let us travel together and I will go before you' (Genesis 33,12). He wanted them to join together in both this world and the world to come, to meet each other halfway, with each modifying his conduct until they were alike (Yalkut Shimoni, Genesis 133).

Excerpted from Redemption
Unfolding by Alexander Aryeh Mandelbaum and published by Feldheim, Chapter
Our Sages wrote that the exile of
Edom( ), which started at the destruction of the second Beis HaMikdash, would continue until Moshiach’s arrival (Ramban, Shemos 17:9). Rome
The Character Traits of
Rav Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler reveals the essence of this golus (Michtav Me’Eliyahu, Part 3, page 216):
“When arrogance spread through Klal Yisroel, to the point that their ‘measure had been filled,’ the Beis HaMikdash was destroyed and handed over to the kingdom of Edom, also known as Rome, the offspring of Amalek, whose main character traits are arrogance and heresy.
“The Romans came with brute force. They didn’t present any spiritual ideal – not even an impure one – against the spirit of holiness of the Torah. That is because they did not have any original culture of their own; they simply presented the option of physical pleasure as opposed to spirituality. They glorified the victory of physical over spiritual as if it were in their power to harness the whole world for their own desires and goals, for the benefit of the masses of their constituency. Their arrogance grew commensurate with their successes, resulting in ever-increasing heresy and audacity towards HaShem.
“This is what our Sages have instructed us about the end of this golus: ‘In the footsteps of the Messianic Age, audacity will increase.’ (Sota 49b) One who knows the truth, but because of his arrogance is not willing to bend to it, acts audaciously, rebelliously, and brazenly against the truth in order to overcome his pangs of conscience. In order to withstand the test of this midda of arrogance and audacity, Klal Yisroel was sent into this golus, which continues from the destruction of the
until this very day.” Temple
The Footsteps of Moshiach
“From the time of the
’s destruction,” Rav Dessler continues, “the power of arrogance, which marks this kingdom, has steadily risen. The lack of clarity and darkness are manifested in pleasure-seeking ways of life which overshadow any true spirituality. In each generation, technology develops ever-increasing ways to take advantage of this world for selfish human desires, and there is a commensurate surge in humankind’s arrogance, as if everything is in a person’s control and he has no limits. Temple
[Keep in mind that Rav Dessler lived from 1892 to 1953. It is as if he were able to see ahead to the days of smart phones and the internet of things and a world allegedly trying to control the actions of a virus!!]
“Heretical belief systems based on the greatness of man flood the world, to the point where they have openly declared war on true faith and those who believe in HaShem and His Torah. This is the main thrust of this kingdom, and, therefore, it is incumbent on us to know that this is the test that Klal Yisroel must overcome.
The Test of Our Times
“This is the test that HaShem has propelled us into in the time before Moshiach. HaShem has brought many Jews back to Eretz Yisroel, and they rule it, and those who have cast off the yoke of Torah gloat as if they have accomplished this miracle with their own powers. The more their arrogance grows, the more their audacity will burgeon, with ever-increasing desire to force their heresy on us. This is the last, most difficult challenge of the golus. The more we recognize this test with all its impact, the better we will understand our task – to strengthen ourselves against these physically-based, false beliefs.
“Those who stand strong against all the heresy – who, rather than being influenced, bolster their belief in HaShem and do not budge at all from the true dictates of the Torah – will merit to see the full Redemption through Moshiach. To them will be revealed the highest levels of spiritual clarity, a knowledge of real truth – a glimpse of the light of Gan Eden. For them will be rectified all the spiritual darkness and ‘hiding’ that has so clouded the world since the sin of Adam, and they will be granted, in the end, true completion in this world, and revelation of the greatness of HaShem’s kingdom in the World to Come….”
That Gives Back Glory to Its Owner
Rav Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler (Michtav Me’Eliyahu, Part 3, page 205) adds an additional insight into the way the downfall of the
will materialize. He wrote (in 5705/1950) that the nullification of the power of kingdomof Edom Edomwill be accomplished by a force none other than itself. Those very traits that Edom Edomboasts about possessing will reverse themselves and become the very means of bringing about the nullification of ’s power. Edom
"And why is the kingdom of Edom compared to a pig [chazir]? 'Because it gives back [machazeret - chet-zayin-resh - the same root as chazir] glory to its owner (Vayikra Rabba, Chapter 13).' In other words, the kingdom of Moshiach will sprout from, and be revealed through, the kingdom of Edom. And, through the destruction of the kingdom of Edom, the Kingdom of Heaven will arise and be revealed."
These words, written by Rav Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler over 50 years ago, are now being clearly revealed as the world watches, astonished.
[And even this was written already in 2005 - 15 years ago. How much more so NOW!]
The great technological advancements of the last generation - amazing advances in the fields of engineering, chemistry, biology, nuclear research, and other sciences - have all been used by Edom as they try to assert that they have the power and ability to conquer and rule over nature. They have used their incredible intellectual achievements to immerse the world in the fulfillment of their wishes and desires. Today, these technological advancements themselves constitute the greatest threats to the world, for they can be used to manufacture tools of widespread destruction such that our ancestors never even imagined.
Moreover, it is clear that these technological inventions, which, admittedly, are of great help to humanity, are now the greatest sources of terror in the world. This is because any attempt to change the natural order of the Holy One, Blessed be He, will be revealed at the end of days to have caused irreversible damage. We see that technological advancement itself has transformed itself from a symbol of pride, serenity, and happiness, to a source of subjugation, terror, and fear. ...Today, it is very clear that the only One we can depend upon is our Father in Heaven.
Ironically, at no other time in history has the entire planet Earth been the subject of "subjugation, terror, and fear" as it has during these "days of corona" and at no other time in the history of the world, unless it was in Ancient Egypt, has man been so thoroughly enslaved by technology.
HKB"H will surely rescue and save!

This is a very important notice and deserves wider distribution than what one expects from the comments section. It does not say who it is from, but it was posted to the Dani website yesterday and someone identified as "Ms. H" vouches for it: "... I am a school secretary in a very large Charedei elementary school in Chutz L'Aretz and have seen the forms sent home to the parents...."

I was thinking a lot about this German Klaus Schwab character (Founder of the World Economic Forum and author of The Fourth Industrial Revolution). I wondered about his parents, but as he is a very powerful personage, it came as no surprise to find that despite being born in 1938, every bio on him begins only in 1971, the year he started the WEF. I was rethinking the Germany/Amalek connection and it jogged my memory on the so-called Royal Family and their German connections...
...Edward, Duke of Kent, married Princess Victoria Mary Louisa, a daughter of the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. You couldn't get much more German than that. They had a daughter, who in 1837 became Queen Victoria.Victoria's first language was German (not surprisingly), but she soon learnt to speak English. She married, naturally, a German cousin, Albert. So the family name now became Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Victoria and Albert corresponded in a mixture of English and German and spoke to each other in either language....Dynastically, Victoria was the most successful of all British monarchs, becoming the grandmother of (royal) Europe. Her eldest daughter married the Crown Prince of Prussia, and their son was Kaiser Wilhelm II - the Kaiser of the 1914-18 war....The 1914-18 war changed everything. Germany and things German, once admired, were now anathema. Dachshunds were stoned in the streets and George V decided that the family name was now an embarrassment.So, in the summer of 1917, shortly after Germany dispatched 23 Gotha bombers to Britain, resulting in the deaths of 76 civilians on the south coast, he changed it to Windsor....Anti-German feeling drove the First Sea Lord, Prince Louis of Battenburg, from office - though he too was a grandson of Queen Victoria. He also thought it prudent to change his family name, and did so by translating Battenburg into Mountbatten. His son became, eventually, Earl Mountbatten of Burma, and his great-nephew is Prince Philip.The shock of the Great War made all German associations suspect, while the collapse of the German, Austro-Hungarian, and Russian Empires left the British monarchy suddenly isolated. It was necessary to emphasise its Englishness, or rather its Britishness.

November 1, 2020Queen Elizabeth will reportedly 'step down next year' and hand over the British throne to the heir next in line, her son Prince Charles when she reaches the age of 95, a royal biographer has claimed.
In The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, the authors put forward a hypothesis that the historical Jesus married Mary Magdalene, had one or more children, and that those children or their descendants emigrated to what is now southern France. Once there, they intermarried with the noble families that would eventually become the Merovingian dynasty, whose special claim to the throne of France is championed today by a secret society called the Priory of Sion. They concluded that the legendary Holy Grail is simultaneously the womb of Mary Magdalene and the sacred royal bloodline she gave birth to.
July 2, 2020Prince Charles would become King Charles III when he succeeds his mother according to royal tradition and would take on all of the monarch's duties. While he would have to continue her work in the most part, he may also choose to make some alterations to his reign. In the past, the Duke of Cornwall has expressed his desire to change the wording of his future position.The monarch possesses a litany of titles when they accede the British throne.The Queen's full title is currently "Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith".When Prince Charles eventually takes her position, he will inherit those titles, but he has voiced his intention to change the "Defender of the Faith" moniker.Bestowed on King Henry VIII in 1517 by the Pope, it reflects the monarch's position as supreme governor of the Church of England.As such, it relates to their ability to preserve the national faith, which, since Henry VIII's rule is Christianity.However, in the more than 500 years since the title came into being, the UK's religious landscape has markedly diversified.The new interfaith identity of the country has led Prince Charles to voice his preference for the streamlined "Defender of Faith" instead.He revealed his intentions in 2008, in a bid to add a contemporary spin to the monarchy.University College London's Constitution Unit said the moved showed support for religious freedom.They said: "Charles was making the point that, in a country with many religions now present, the sovereign should be concerned to see all religion defended and not just the Church of England."Because Latin has no definite article, he offered 'Defender of Faith' as an alternative and viable translation to signify how a sovereign should nowadays understand the contemporary meaning of the title."In practice, religion is protected by laws made by Parliament or as a result of international agreements like the European Convention on Human Rights."..."The Prince has said that he wants to be seen as a defender of all religious faiths and not just the Anglican church ....
February 5, 2002NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (JTA) — Among the Who´s Who of business and political leaders roaming the halls of this year´s World Economic Forum was an unprecedentedly large contingent of rabbis, priests and imams.
The new members of one of the world´s most elite clubs demonstrate that, especially since Sept. 11, religion increasingly is seen an integral force in economic and political relations.
“What Sept. 11 demonstrated more forcefully than ever is that religion can be terribly abused for violent purposes that can affect us all,” said Rabbi David Rosen, director of interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee and a participant at the economic forum. “You have to strengthen the moderates who can make religion a constructive force rather than a destructive one,” Rosen said.
["Strengthen the moderates" - this is what they are doing with the Abraham Accords.]
“You can´t ignore religion in terms of political and social processes.” In fact, the founder and president of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, was having breakfast with Rabbi Arthur Schneier at his Park East Synagogue in New York when the two jets struck the World Trade Center, Schneier said. Schneier, who heads the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, a coalition of business and religious leaders in New York, had intended to discuss increasing the participation of religious leaders at the economic forum.
After the attack, the notion seemed even more urgent. With Schneier´s assistance, Schwab decided to commemorate the world disaster by moving his forum — traditionally held in the Swiss ski resort of Davos — to New York City, Schneier said. And he doubled the number of religious leaders to 40, including eight Jews.
While Western nations have distanced religion from public life in recent decades, the forum's new line is to embrace religion, understand its traditions and glean its wisdom. As international companies expand their markets and governments and corporations see peace as essential to progress, leaders increasingly are giving religion a role in enhancing international stability.
This year´s five-day forum, which ended Monday, included interfaith dialogue groups and, for the first time, spread the religious leaders out on panels throughout the forum such as migration and citizenship, the Middle East conflict, and cultural diversity.
The religious figures were also slated to discuss the creation of a Religious Leaders Council, a permanent body that will offer its guidance to companies and nations —a matter that was, ultimately, tabled for further discussion.
So, I went to search and find out what happened to it after 2002. This was the partial result...
• Faith leaders from Christianity, Judaism and Islam support government efforts to control the coronavirus.• Young men and women of faith can supply their digital know-how to build good communication during the crisis.• Discussions are taking place about how the three religions can collaborate on charitable initiatives.The COVID-19 global pandemic requires an immediate, whole-of society approach to prevent the transmission of the virus. During this time of uncertainty, faith leaders such as ourselves have turned to our religious texts and theology to find comfort for the community and encourage safe practices.We have seen fellow prominent faith leaders from Christianity, Judaism and Islam issuing opinions, guidance documents – and even fatwas – to their communities that re-analyse religious practices and provide theological opinions on how faith practices or rituals can be adapted to meet the response of COVID-19 and implement social distancing.To slow the spread of the virus, we’ve taken to media, email and radio to conduct daily prayers and worship, mobilize individual volunteers to serve the elderly and at risk. We’ve engaged in discussions surrounding personal well-being and found new ways to communicate to our communities the importance of listening to the safety guidelines promoted by governments and the World Health Organization (WHO).“The ability to go to your church or synagogue or mosque in a hard time is really important to people,” empathized Rabbi Sharon Brous in the LA Times. Nevertheless, she practised social distancing and engaged with her community via virtual platforms, as recommended by medical and government authorities. She exhorted her synagogue members to find “resilience and level-headedness and kindness and cooperation precisely in their moment of greatest vulnerability”.Lessons from the Abrahamic faithsAs some individuals may be wary of following the preventative messages pertaining to COVID-19 by government and international organizations, faith actors should utilize religious teachings to reiterate the importance of these measures for the safety of the community. The Abrahamic faiths all have teachings that profess the importance of taking action to assist others and save lives.• The Bible encourages followers to “show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works”.• The Quran tells us: “If anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole humanity.”• In Judaism, the preservation of human life takes precedence over all other commandments, as emphasized in the Talmud.
[Apparently, they don't know about the circumstances where in a Jew is required to give up his life rather than transgress. Nor, are they apparently aware that when war is called for, one must risk his life, whether that war is for the Torah, for mitzvot, or for the Land of Israel.]
In understanding how these teachings emphasize the importance of taking action, communities can be encouraged to follow government-implemented measures and practice social distancing in order to protect themselves.
[In other words, this is how you manipulate religious people to cooperate with their own enslavement.]
'Cooperate to combat the disease'Muslim clerics have emphasized regulations issued by governments by creating fatwas calling for a halt in organized religious gatherings and encourage communities to adhere to government calls of social distancing and self-isolating. Prominent Muslim scholar Shaykh Bin Abdullah Bin Bayyah, Chairman of the United Arab Emirates Council for Fatwa and President of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, issued a fatwa calling on the community to obey the directives and instruction of governments in order, “to cooperate to combat the disease and halt its dissemination”.
[No doubt one of those religious moderates who can conform his religious beliefs to the diktats of the world government These are the very ones who have joined the Abraham Accords.]
Pope Francis has urged Christians everywhere to unite in shared moments of prayer, adding: “Let us remain united. Let us make our closeness felt toward those persons who are the most lonely and tried.” Russell Moore, of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, responding to ignoring the plight of the elderly in the pandemic, said in the New York Times: “Each human life is more significant than a trillion-dollar gross national product. Stocks and bonds are important, yes, but human beings are created in the image of God.” Local religious actors should use the proclamations of global religious leaders as a model to craft context-specific messaging for their local communities surrounding COVID-19. Statements by religious leaders are essential not only to raise awareness about preventative measures, but also serve as a reinforcement mechanism of government messaging. Although governments and health officials have issued advice to safeguard communities from COVID-19, we have seen religious leaders and actors fail to adhere to the calls and continue to engage communities in religious gatherings. To rectify these situations, religious leaders and communities from the same religious or faith tradition should directly reach out to those failing to abide by guidelines. If engaged in theological discussions about the protection of human life, we may see religious leaders halt gatherings and implement social-distancing guidelines.
[Have you seen examples of this? I have!]
It is important for religious actors to encourage and implement preventative measures with an inclusive focus. As noted in the Peacemakers Network’s “Six ways religious and traditional actors can prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their communities”, youth can serve in a critical capacity to support digital communication, especially as they have been at the forefront as users of social media and technology. As modern technology is still a recent development, religious and traditional leaders may lack a concrete understanding of how to effectively use technological platforms to communicate with a wide audience. In addition, messages developed and communicated by young people are more likely to resonate with their peers. At the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS Center), youth have assisted the imams in engaging in virtual platforms, such as Facebook, to ensure the continuation of educational programming and Friday reflections, from distance.
Therefore, communities and leaders should seek to actively partner with youth in developing messages, assisting with the utilization of technology and social media as a connective communication mechanism during this period of social distancing. By supporting youth inclusion in local initiatives, young women and men of faith can play an important role in connecting and communicating with their peers and communities at large. The Washington Hebrew Congregation has noted the participation in youth programming has nearly doubled since it took exclusively to virtual platforms. The trends we have noticed pertaining to youth engagement in religious communities during the COVID-19 pandemic could be viewed as a positive outcome that can be further integrated into future programming.
Quite often, religious texts have been misinterpreted to justify patriarchy and gender-based inequalities, which has resulted in women unable to hold religious leadership positions and unable to attend and/or participate in prayers and gatherings. Since a majority of religious practices are now conducted at home on the family level, religious leaders should encourage female participation. Through the use of virtual worship and discussion, we have seen women continue their spirituality and faith practices as well as maintain social and supportive connections with women in the community.
[Still don't think there is an anti-Torah agenda at work? They brag about it!]
For instance, at Northwood Church, Texas, the women's ministry has done an incredible job, not just in moving their Bible study online, but in organizing online coordination to take the elderly to the hospital, to providing them with meals, as well as organizing and providing lunches for impoverished children.
Religious leaders also have a role to oppose scapegoating other religions and incitements to bigotry or violence. As we are now living in a virtual world, solidarity between religions and faith is critical. It must be understood that not all faith communities have the capacity to virtually share information regarding COVID-19 and best practices to avoid transmission. We call on those communities fortunate enough to have the means to widely communicate and assist the most vulnerable to seek their neighbours of other faiths. Consider partnering with other community or faith organizations if you do not have access to technology or help to bring groceries and medication to those who are elderly or immune-compromised.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have seen an increase in multi-faith collaboration in regards of expressing solidarity. However, there is still a discussion within interfaith communities about the best mechanism to create a collaborative response through charitable action. We have seen many charitable initiatives, such as a young boy in Virginia collecting protective gear from hotels and donating to hospitals, but we are presently unaware of charitable responses on the multi-faith level.
Nevertheless, discussions occurring every day by multi-faith actors is a positive sign for charitable collaboration in the very near future.
This virus does not discriminate based on religion, race or gender. The spread of the virus will only be halted when we as human beings come to practice social distancing while supporting our communities, loving our neighbours as yourself.
Neuralink: Merging Humans with AIMake no mistake! This new world of their own creation cannot be accommodated by Hashem's Torah; therefore, they will not be willing to make an accommodation for it or for anyone who holds by it. The corporatocracy is also why mom-and-pop and medium-size businesses are being closed down and bankrupted by the pandemic measures as part of the agenda to put it into place. Choice is being eliminated because everyone knows that slaves are not given any choice in their lives. Plus absolute control can only be maintained when they hold access to all the sources of our daily needs. Hashem yerachem!
