10 Nissan 5781 

For the children of Israel shall remain for many days, having neither king, nor prince, nor sacrifice, nor pillar, nor ephod nor teraphim. [i.e., during the 2,000-year Roman exile]
Afterwards shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God and David their king, and they shall come trembling to the Lord and to His goodness at the end of days.  (Hoshea 3.4-5)

"If not now, when?"

On the 10th day of Nissan, 3333 years ago, the Children of Israel took the Egyptian lamb-god hostage in their homes and the Egyptians were powerless to stop them.  Four days later on 14 Nissan, those lambs would be slaughtered, roasted whole and served for dinner that night [15 Nissan] at the first Pesach seder ever.

This was a big test for Klal Yisrael.  Had they not passed it, there would have been no yetziat Mitzrayim.

I would like to see this farce called democratic elections go the same way as those lambs - ultimately, their end was as a pile of waste product.

Casting a vote in a rigged election is an act of futility.  Nobody who can really make a difference is allowed to play in this game.  From Rabbi Meir Kahane, to Moshe Feiglin, to Michael Ben Ari and Baruch Marzel, and Eli Yishai, one-by-one, they were picked off, labeled racist, or simply walled off and not allowed to advance, or their ballots were stolen, forged, delegitimized, or party banned outright.  When it comes to politics, the only way to win is not to play the game.

After four elections in two years, expecting any different outcome might even be termed a sign of insanity.  [Albert Einstein: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."]

Current projections are that this election will end in a stalemate and no one will be able to put together a coalition.  Let's hope, and let's hope it is the clearest sign yet that this regime is over.  Mashiach could be in the wings right now awaiting his cue to go onstage.  Let's hope... and pray!!  

"For You are my hope, O Lord God, my trust since my youth."  (Tehillim 71.5)
