Stormwinds of Yemen, the Final Blast of the Shofar

For a Refuah Sheleimah of Menachem ben Rifka of the Absolute Truth 613 Blog.

I published this two years ago, and the missile that the Houthi rebels shot over the Riyadh civilian airport that the Saudis had to shoot down was shot on the Fourth of November 2017, exactly two years after this post.  Now this is the second time in the last two months where I have reposted a post that I wrote two years ago.  There is a message in that.  Perhaps, without predicting, the events of 5775 and 5776, the Shmittah and Yovel years, have simply been transposed to 5777 and 5778, two years later.  This was the message that I wrote about when the Cubs won the World Series in the Fall of 2016 in one of my posts about how HaShem for awhile there was trying to get His message out through Sports.  The (Bear)Cubs won in 7 games in Extra Innings by a score of 8 to 7 in that 7th Game!.  So we are now in overtime after the Yovel year in 5776, and the events of 5777 and 5778 where "The Spiritual Bears" or Dubiel, Russia and Persia, are now taking over the World!  And they won over the Cleveland Indians which is if everyone remembers, America in KaleivLand which is Middle Heartland America at -50.  KaleivLand here in Israel, the Hevron/ Kiryat Arba/ Othniel/ Hevron Hills metroplex is the first place in Israel to potentially reach the 50th Gate of purity Even before Yerushalayim reaches it!  Why? Because in order to reach the 50th Gate bein Adam leMakom in Yerushalayim, the nation or the nation's spiritual representatives in these places must first reach the 50th Gate bein Adam veChaVeiRo in CheVRon and in the Chevron Hills in places like Othniel.  Notice the word Chaveiro is the essence of the name Chevron.   It is why the Avot chose to live out their lives there along with some sojourns further south to Beer Sheva.  They wanted to reach the 50th level bein Adam leChaveiro in the place on earth most conducive to reaching that level, and only on very special occasions did they travel to Har Moriah or Ir Shalem to serve G-d bein Adam leMakom.  A telling lesson for today and in ancient times.  It was so important that the Qorbon tamid for Shacharit could not be offered up in Yerushalayim until the sun had risen in Chevron!  So on the opposite end of this scale was America at -50, a dubious distinction that was reached in the Early Summer of 5776 when Omar Mateen walked into that homosexual bar on Shavuot night, (the 49th anniversary of the beginning of the Summer of Promiscuous love in San Francisco) and murdered 49 homosexuals in which he himself became the 50th dead body in that bar at Alot HaShachar on Shavuot morning when the SWAT team burst through the wall and brought him down in a hail of bullets.  One month later the Republicans coronated their candidate Donald Trump in Kaleivland, Ohio (a city founded by MOSES CLEAVELAND) AFTER America had already sunk to that dubious level of cultural quicksand, -50.  The fact that in both cases, Kaleiv's lands in Israel and in America were bequeathed directly by MOSES or Moshe Rabbeinu, made both places conducive to reaching the 50th Gate before everyone else who was awarded their portion in a lottery conducted by Moshe's Assistant, Yehoshua bin Nun.  So the Lands of Kaleiv were bequeathed directly by Moshe with no lottery in the next generation being necessary.  But alas, America, actually the Middle America of American culture was given a full year to repent of falling to this level under the leadership of their miraculously elected leader, Donald Trump.  And that year concluded, and America in cultural quicksand is disintegrating so badly that plaques honoring where George Washington sat in church are being removed by his Virginia congregation because like Robert E. Lee, George Washington was a slave owner!

Now I will agree that Mashiach did not come and that the Messianic Era was not "born" by the end of Sukkot 5777.  It was not destined that Persia should fall into the hands of Rome over the course of the nine months allotted for that to happen.  This is hinted at in the Gemorrah in Yoma 10 even if it is not explicitly stated.  Here is the entire section of the Gemorrah in question from Halakhah.com:

Rabbah b. Bar Hana in the name of R. Johanan, on the authority of R. Judah b. Ila'i, said: Rome is designed to fall into the hands of Persia, that may be concluded by inference a minori ad majus: If in the case of the first Sanctuary, which the sons of Shem [Solomon] built and the Chaldeans (Babylonians) destroyed, the Chaldeans fell into the hands of the Persians,37 then how much more should this be so with the second Sanctuary, which the Persians built and the Romans destroyed, that the Romans should fall into the hands of the Persians.38 Rav said: Persia will fall into the hands of Rome. Thereupon R. Kahana and R. Assi asked of Rav: [Shall] the builders (Persia) fall into the hands of the destroyers (Rome)? — He said to them: Yes, it is the decree of the King.39 Others say: He replied to them: They too are guilty for they destroyed the synagogues. It has also been taught in accord with the above, Persia will fall into the hands of Rome, first because they destroyed the synagogues, and then because it is the King's decree that the builders fall into the hands of the destroyers. Rav also said: The son of David will not come until the wicked kingdom of Rome will have spread [its sway] over the whole world for nine months, as it is said: Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she who travaileth hath brought forth; then the residue of his brethren shall return with the children of Israel.40

Now that last verse is from Micah 5 which foretells the final nine months of Olam HaZeh before Mashiachzeit, or Yemot HaMashiach is "born".  Notice the juxtaposition.  First Rav says that Persia will fall into the hands of Rome because the King decrees  that those who built the Temple should fall into the hands of those who destroyed it (Rome) and like Rome, Persia also destroyed synagogues.  Then the Gemorrah does what it often does and quotes other things that Rav said about Rome.  In this case he basically repeats himself by saying the same thing a different way!  In order for Rome to hold sway over the world for nine months, Persia must either fall  into the hands of Rome DURING those nine months or at the end of those nine months.  In short the bipolar world has to become a unipolar world because Persia falls into the hands of Rome.  The other possibility is that Persia "pretends" to keep all treaties that it is a party to signing during those nine months while silently working on its military expansion plans under the surface.  This way Rome would appear to hold sway for nine months, and after nine months Persia would cease to hide its intentions!  Well this is precisely what has happened.  After the first nine months of Trump's Presidency, Persia is becoming a menace to the entire world  The Sunni Arabs are waking up and smelling the coffee!  So what this also seems to mean is that Persia WILL NOT fall into the hands of Rome but will instead with Russian material help go forth to try to take over the world in overtime, this 8th year of the 578th decade, the 5770s.  And this time it is unclear if Rome can stop her.  As a matter of fact, there is no reason to assume that Rome can really stop Persia at all after these first nine months, but Rome will now try.

Now to bring the year 5777 to a close, I must first answer what did happen on Hoshana Rabbah 5778 at the end of the year?  Well it happened in N. Korea at their Nuke Mountain.  After testing N. Korea's first Hydrogen bomb in Elul 5777, the mountain underneath the caps on the mountain became very unstable.  Then on either the eve of Hoshana Rabbah or on Hoshana Rabbah night itself, the foundation of that mountain collapsed killing 100 people immediately and another 100 people when a rescue team was sent to rescue then while the foundation of Nuke Mountain completely gave way!   Yet, all this news was completely hidden from the world for three weeks after the fact.  Only less than two weeks ago did this news come out, perhaps because the foundation collapse of Nuke Mountain was so complete that nuclear by-products may have entered the groundwater that North Korea shares with China!  This is a temporary setback for Un's nuclear program.  He has lost his main test facility, and he probably needs to build another somewhere perhaps under the same mountain but in a parallel shaft.  Also while he has continued to shoot off his mouth at Trump, just today calling him an old lunatic, he has not shot off any missiles since Sukkot.  He is obviously restructuring his efforts after the catastrophe at Nuke Mountain.  So where do we see all this in the Torah.  Well we see it in the 5777th pasuk of the Torah itself, Rav Levi Saadia Nahmani's favorite pasuk when dealing with N. Korea (Deut. 32:22):

 כִּי-אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי,  {ר}  וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית;  {ס}  וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ,  {ר}  וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים.  {ס 22 For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burns like a drill unto the depths of the nether-world (Sheoul), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.

So right here in this pasuk we see both, the California fires that destroyed the grapevines in Napa Valley wine country and the destruction of the foundation of N. Korea's Nuke Mountain on Hoshana Rabbah!  And that destruction came from the blast of the Hydrogen bomb during the months of Elul under the cap of Nuke Mountain.  So rather than destroying Seoul with a blast of HaShem's nostrils just to the south of the 38th parallel, the explosion literally went downwards inside that mountain!  Yet, the crops that would have been destroyed by a nuclear missile against Norther California were destroyed by the worst wildfires in California history instead!  So at least for this past year, the Fire was contained for those who deserved it most:  The North Koreans and their nuclear ambitions and the State in the United States and the area where it began that sent the United States on its 50 year plunge toward the Abyss, San Francisco, California.  At least in round one, the good people of Seoul did not deserve to be a target of G-d's Wrath.  Half of them study Talmud because they want to learn the Wisdom of the Jews even if they learn it from dry sources.  There is something to be said about a culture that wants to give so much kavod to G-dly wisdom.  So, Baruch HaShem, Seoul was spared, round One.

Now all along we have been saying that this final war will be a two front war.  1. The Korean Front in the Western Pacific and 2. the Iranian front specifically around Batzrah, the Shiite stronghold in southern Iraq at the confluence to two of the four Rivers that come out of Gan Eden, the Chidekel (Tigris) and the Euphrates.   We learn this from the verse quoted in the Zohar VaEira 32a itself about a war at the edge of the world, that the L-rd will have a sacrifice in Batzrah and a Great Slaughter in the Land of Edom (Yishayahu 34).  The only way that this verse could have anything to do with that passage in the Zohar about a war with a nation at the edge of the world (at the international dateline) is if that nation, North Korea, has an unbreakable alliance with the Shiite powers who control the City of Batzrah.  And that Shiite power is Iran.  So until now it was not clear which front of this war would explode first, the North Korean theater or the Persian theater.  But what was clear from so many years ago, the place in the Persian theater of the Yalkut Shimoni war starting with a machloket between Persia and the King of Arabia that would first explode in the Middle East was in Yemen.  And now I present my post on this matter from two years ago with some additions:

  I wanted to help you complete the picture from the perspective of Emunah. We have been Crowning HaShem as King of the Universe every Rosh HaShanah since Sinai with blasts of the Shofar. The three final p'sukim in Musaph Rosh HaShanah dealing with the blasts of the Shofar (Shofarot) provide the key to the Final Redemption, the three blasts of the Shofar in Nevua for the Acharit HaYamim. The Third blast, the Stormwinds of Teiman (Yemen) has JUST OCCURRED! This is a post on my blog from almost precisely two years ago. I should point out that the missile from Yemen last Saturday night took place on the 16th of MarCheshvan, the Day before G-d Judged the entire world at the time of the Great Flood.
HaShem has been setting up Chess pieces for quite a while. There has now been a Hurricane in Teiman on Tuesday for the first time ever (This was a truly freak hurricane from two years ago). It is the last Shofar blast of the trilogy of shofar blasts at the end of Days. Look at Musaph Rosh HaShanah for the last three pasukim mentioned by the Nevi'im dealing with Blowing the Shofar to set the stage for the advent of Mashiach:.
And through Your servants, the Prophets, the following is written:
1. כָּל-יֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל, וְשֹׁכְנֵי אָרֶץ, כִּנְשֹׂא-נֵס הָרִים תִּרְאוּ, וְכִתְקֹעַ שׁוֹפָר תִּשְׁמָעוּ.
(Yishayahu 18:3) All the inhabitants of the earth and dwellers on the land, You will see like the raising of a flag (the Israeli flag) in the mountains, and like the blast of a Shofar you will hear.
This was the founding of the State of Israel in 5708. That was the first shofar blast. It was "Like" the blast of a shofar because the State of Israel was founded by the Erev Rav. The Erev Rav has provided a cocoon for Torah Judaism to grow and thrive without bringing on the wrath of the nations of the world that they would send troops to destroy the upstart State. So the Modern State by virtue of the fact that it behaves like the Western nations of the world, has fooled the Satan to allow nourishment for the future Messianic State while functioning at the level of statecraft like a Western country. So its founding was LIKE the blast of a Shofar.
2. וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם.
(Yishayahu 27:13) And it will be on that very day, a Great Shofar Blast will be blown, and the Lost ones (Russian Jews) in/from the Land of Ashur, and Castaways (Ethiopian Jews) in/from the Land of Egypt will come and bow before HaShem at His Holy Mountain in Yerushalayim.
This was the famous incident of the Ingathering of the Exiles that the Vilna Gaon spoke about for the years 5750 and 5751 because those years marked the 3/4 mark of the 6th millennium as if they were three quarters of the way through the 6th day of the week. At High Noon on Yom Shishi, shofar blowers would ascend the mountains of Israel to blow the shofar to call Israel in from her fields to prepare for Shabbat. So it would be the case 3/4 of the way through the 6th millennium. The davening at His Holy Mountain has not yet occurred.....yet, but the ingathering surely picked up speed in those two fateful years. Russian Jewry was a lost Jewry who lost its connection to Judaism while Ethiopian Jewry survived isolated in Ethiopia as a castaway nation when porters from the sacking of Mitzraim by Assyria were no longer needed by the Assyrian Army. So the porters from the Shevatim of Dan, Naftali, and Asher wandered down to Ethiopia to join the Queen of Sheba's existing Jewish country from 300 years prior. They survived beyond the River Sanbat, the tributary to the Nile River known by the gentiles as the Blue Nile whose source is from Lake Gondar in Gondar Province in Ethiopia. The bulk of the Ethiopian community that came during Op. Shlomo and Sheba were redeemed on Shabbat, the one day per week when the waters of the Sanbat River were placid.
Finally, the last Shofar blast in the trio of prophetic shofar blasts heralding the coming of Mashiach
3. וַיהוָה עֲלֵיהֶם יֵרָאֶה, וְיָצָא כַבָּרָק חִצּוֹ; וַאדֹנָי יְהוִה בַּשּׁוֹפָר יִתְקָע, וְהָלַךְ בְּסַעֲרוֹת תֵּימָן
(Zecharia 9:14) And HaShem was seen above them (watching our misery under the thumb of the Erev Rav), and His arrow will go forth like lightning. And the L-rd G-d will blow the Shofar, and go forth in the stormwinds of Teiman (Yemen). As if it were on cue suddenly, the news comes out:
This is the third and final shofar blast of the Final Redemption..... The Stormwinds of Yemen. This is why the last war had to begin in Yemen.  And the first shot of this war was fired by the Iranian supported and armed Houthi rebels when they shot a missile over the Riyadh, Saudi Arabian domestic airport on the night of the 16th of MarCheshvan 5778.  

Now how long will it take for this war to finally get really hot?  I will tell you right now.....  I don't know, and I won't hazard any guesses.  But the beauty of what is happening is that the last War has begun!

Prince Charles has made a series of controversial public statements about various things, though that was a private letter.
Let us hope that during the 30 years since writing that letter he has seen how wrong he was to have believed the Arab propaganda.
He has a degree which includes History, his educational training should have conditioned him to research matters at length before pronouncing a definite opinion on them.
He has though had a lot of contacts with our community over the years and made many visits to Jewish schools and charities.
It does not look good though, not after the revelations about the Queen Mother's anti-Semitism.

Come on. enough nonsense. moshiach is coming and we are supposed to be scared, run to Israel because God Almighty is going to destroy the whole world and save Israel because it's so pure and holy? you really believe this nonsense?

Moshiach is coming and world will become peaceful. Wars will end, people will heal. That is what the real moshiach will do. all this fear mongering has always been false and always will be.

There is no connection between 1930 germany and 2017 USA besides what's dreamt up by some people's paranoia and anxieties.

As said several times, the election of Trump against all odds was due to the intervention of the King and Creator of the world, HKB"H, Who wanted Trump to become the savior of Edom and a total supporter of Israel. The Snake-Like Trump didn't match up to his call and is now rather threatening Israel with his peace plan.

The Heavenly intervention, turning all predictions up side down, is affirmed in Steve Bannon's speech as per the link below

The Snake-Like Trump ties Israel's hands. This is just the beginning!

A major Israeli concession made it possible for Moscow to walk off with a big gain for its allies in the Nov.8 Trump-Putin memorandum for Syria, DEBKAfile reports.
The strong pledges made by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkott – that Iran and Hizballah would not be permitted to establish a permanent military presence in Syria and come close to the Israeli border – have melted away in secret bargaining sessions. Israel was finally forced to agree to their presence as close as 20km from its northern Golan border with Syria, backing away sharply from its original demand of a 50km buffer zone.

Hi Dov. I wonder, how does this figure in to things:
Recent "garbage" has now come to light. In Twitter it has been posted that several sources are releasing info that the missile over Riyadh was shot by American military.
There are too many things to list, yet one source is "down the rabbit hole."
There are two other sources. They are WH sources who are leaking info to public.
There is info related to the deaths
of the Saudi princes and why they were ousted, sale of Amaco on NYSE.
If the info is true it is jaw dropping, yet not surprising...
To me it signifies Hashem is draining the swamp and that "The Donald " is a conduit...
If you have a chance, take a look. I don't have a Twitter account. This was info sent to me via texts that were sent out.....

The humans try hard to kill each other in endless wars, but this is insignificant compared to the natural disasters ahead.
Iran, strengthened by Obama legacy, won't be defeated by any army, but by devastating natural disasters, particularly earthquakes.
The show put by Saudi Arabia, for killing and bombarding Teiman, is just to convince arms sellers to give them advanced weapons. Similar reason applies to the apparent rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran. They may even engage in battles, but the real intention is to get weapons. At a certain point in time they unite to fight the only powerful adversary, Yisrael. We should not forget that Yishmael will keep the entire world in control for nine months.
The tragedy of current humanity is that is arming at an unbelievable speed, that accounts for the final Gog uMagog wars.
The entire Middle East will be devastated, Yishmael disappearing entirely.
After all these, we may talk about Mashiach. Rami

Leah, this may help: Saudia Arabia Titanic Changes, with a link to Rabbi Brody’s Video that explains all the recent events. All these things are “good” and the working of Hashem in the world. All those who were purged were Wahabists, the “anti” and old guard. MbS wants to bring Saudia Arabia into a moderate (?) future; to work with Israel and the US neged Iran. MbS has met with Netanyahu and has been to Washington and Trump. These are all signs of the imminent arrival of Mashiach. Rabbi Brody says not to pay attention to the “NEWS” which means the social media also.

Ya'akov: War is imminent. The major powers will go to war with each other while we here in Israel go to war against Hezbollah in Lebanon and Western Syria, the evil from the north at the end of days. Now why is that? This is true in part because Yehoshua ben Nun did not conquer 40% of the mandated territory of Eretz Yisrael that lies to the north of our present borders. He did conquer up to Sidon (but it was quickly lost), but his mandate of conquest was to conquer the entire country of Lebanon all the way to Aleppo, Syria according to one opinion, Kaftor veFerach, and according to Tevu'ot HaAretz he was supposed to conquer 2/3rds of Lebanon and a huge chunk of southwest Syria. It is from there that the Evil at the end of days comes because we have a mandate to conquer these lands for the first time in history since Yehoshua failed to do so. And it is our mitzvah to do this. So the situation is being set up where we will be forced to do it one way or another. Think of Eretz Yisrael like the walls of a Sukkah. There have to be two walls that are completely full plus a section of a third wall which must be three or four tefachim long. So looking at our border with the Mediterranean, it is full. Our present border with Yarden is also full. The northern borders and the southwest border with Mitzraim are truncated, but because most of the southern border described in Sefer baMidbar is under our control, we have three kosher walls. Because of this the IDF has been miraculously blessed with defending these borders since 1967. If there had been a retreat from the Yarden, which the Umot HaOlam so desperately wanted, we would not have been so blessed. Now the time is coming to complete our northern border. Our family is about to expand by bringing home the Golah. We need a bigger Sukkah. Lebanon must be conquered since it is our job to build the Sukkah!

Further to the warnings I have raised about the Snake-Like Trump and his peace plan (based on the Saudi plan) and suicidal to Israel.

Report: Secret Saudi plan includes Israeli nuclear disarmament


Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar says it has received a letter from Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir to Crown Prince Muhammad Salman in which he summarizes discussions and recommendations on a project to establish relations between the Saudis and Israel, according to what he called the strategic partnership agreement with the United States.

Citing Al-Akhbar, Maariv reports the document, which includes Israeli nuclear disarmament, proves what has been leaked since US President Donald Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia last May, according to which Washington will begin efforts to sign a peace treaty between Saudi Arabia and Israel, including reciprocal visits, to Tel Aviv, headed by a recent secret visit by the crown prince. The document also includes "the size of the concessions that Riyadh will present in order to end the Palestinian issue," as well as "its concerns about receiving support against Iran and Hezbollah."

Meir: Don't you notice that Trump is dragging his feet with regards to meeting Sunni Arab demands that Israel find a way to divide itself into pieces? He keeps delaying and delaying the day when he releases or will release his version of the New Saudi Pieces Plan and Israeli Suicide Pact. I believe that makes this one number 6 on the number of Pieces of Israel plans that the Saudis keep drawing up for an American stamp of approval. In this case though, Donald Trump is dragging his feet. He does not desire with bated breath to impose a suicidal solution on Israel. So far he has delayed imposed solutions for ten months, and it seems he wants to delay imposing solutions until Spring 2018. Perhaps Trump thinks correctly that once the War begins, he won't be able to impose any Palestinian solution on Israel whatsoever!

Trump, Kushner ad nauseum: Keep Your Deals for Yourselves

Believe me that Trump will get high approval ratings in the USA before the Arabs here will be willing to live in peace with Jews/the State of Israel. So, the bottom line is that instead of joining to world in trying to pressure Israel into suicide, Donald Trump and Jared Kushner should polish up POTUS’s image in their home country. There’s more of a chance they’ll succeed in that quest.

Well Here is the Main Trigger for War whenever it occurs. 20% of world Commerce travels through the Strait of Mandeb/ Gulf of Aden. Yet, the Suez Canal was closed for years as we know between 1967 and 1980. Now that it has been reopened for decades, the PTBs won't accept a situation where world commerce is closed off again in the waters between Africa and Asia.

You write, " I will agree that Mashiach did not come, and nor was he "born" by the end of Sukkot 5777".

Whom do you agree with? How did you make your determination, did you make it as per the qualifications demanded by law as per Maimonides, the only pertinent and unanimous law-provider in this case?

He wasn't born yet? Where do you come up with all these wild notions?

But of course, even though it behooves him who should entertain the prospect of Moshiach's imminent revelation to really search him out, and check sources of those who claim he's here alive and well, albeit not yet ready for complete and second revelation, as per Daniel (see Rashi near end) and so too because if he can show up any day that means he's already been born, ...

But you'll "agree" to shutter your eyes, to prevent from study the words a likely candidate for Moshiach has already written and who has left plenty of prophecies for us for discernment, plus all other specified-by-law qualification to assume your sense of identity and means of identification, as opposed to those ruled by Maimonides, are key.

Please!

Senior Trump administration officials are reportedly crafting a plan for Middle East peace. Yet based on the details that are available so far, friends of Israel have good reason for concern.

According to a front-page New York Times report on November 12, the administration is preparing what it considers to be an “ultimate deal” between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs.

The problem is that Israel will be expected to make new concessions, while the Palestinians will be asked to do things that they already committed to do in the Oslo Accords — 24 years ago.


I have been keeping on warning about the Snake-Like Trump for quite some time now.And the calculated Trump sends his Court Jews Kushner and Greenblatt to force is Saudi-like plan on Israel, c"v. Trump wants to make the (real estate) deal of century and get the Nobel Peace Price at all cost.

No wonder the PA’s envoy to Washington, Husam Zomlot, was quoted in the Times as heaping praise on the Trump initiative. If the Israel-haters of the PA love the plan, you can bet that spells trouble for Israel.

A new report from The Washington Free Beacon claims that there is “growing concern on Capital Hill the US government is quietly working with militia fighters in Iraq who are directly tied to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.” The allegation comes as the war against Islamic State in Iraq winds down and Washington searches for a post-ISIS role in Iraq and Syria. It also appears as US President Donald Trump seeks to roll out a new policy to confront Iran in the region.

Meir M, that plan along with Saudi putting pressure on Abbas to accept the plan of POTUS or resign (though they quickly denied this) will basically box Israel into a corner to accept (accept our death sentence) or say no, bringing the entire world to condemn us which is preferable obviously. I don't think our gov't has the political will to do anything but accept the great messiah Trump's plan for our destruction.

Response to Shiloh

Let the whole world condemn us. As if we should care. Says the King and Creator of the world, HKB"H, guardian of Israel and the Land:

For from their beginning, I see them as mountain peaks, and I behold them as hills; it is a nation that will dwell alone, and will not be reckoned among the nations.
- Bamidbar 23:9

I agree with you that the major problem is not the nations of the world but rather our current leadership that so much wants to appease the nations and be part of of it. They might not have the courage to stand up to the pressure. Hence we need Moshiach NOW! Hope and strength we find in Tehillim 121:2-4:

עֶזְרִי מֵעִ֣ם ה' עֹ֜שֵׂ֗ה שָׁמַ֥יִם וָאָֽרֶץ:
My help is from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
אַל־יִתֵּ֣ן לַמּ֣וֹט רַגְלֶ֑ךָ אַל־יָ֜נ֗וּם שֹֽׁמְרֶֽךָ:
He will not allow your foot to falter; Your Guardian will not slumber.
הִנֵּ֚ה לֹ֣א יָ֖נוּם וְלֹ֣א יִישָׁ֑ן שׁ֜וֹמֵ֗ר יִשְׂרָאֵֽל:
Behold the Guardian of Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

We can only pray and hope that H' won't let our weaknesses take the lead. That He won't let us repeat the Oslo-agreement style of alliance with the nations of the world. H' has promised us that on the day the nations of the world will come against us He will again show us that He is איש מלחמה (warrior) and He will do the battle for us and we will again hear His words ""ה' יִלָּחֵם לָכֶם, וְאַתֶּם תחרשון"" (The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent.)
Shemot 14:14

אָבִינוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ (Our Father King): May You soon, very soon, in our days bring forward Moshiach as You promised us בימים ההם בזמן הזה (In those days, in this time!)

Be also aware that Moshiach is the messenger of heaven, any human interference is of no avail. Rebbe tried to make G-d reveal the Moshiach, but he failed. Confusion emerged. If you are Jewish, beheave accordingly to the covenant and laws instituted by Moshe, and you may survive. See Ezekiel for End of Days scenario.

Why Israelis Are Worried About Donald Trump
Given the historic temptation for U.S. presidents to attempt to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict and Trump's self-perception as a master dealmaker, it appears that Trump is convinced that he can engineer a brilliant diplomatic breakthrough.

I believe what NBA was hinting at is that it is some of the Rabbanim of this generation who don't want Mashiach to come because they might lose their position of leadership and prestige as the World of Lies collapses and the World of Truth emerges. So it is their hands that must be forced. I saw this in 2005 leading up to the Disengagement. So I believe it to be correct. No one is forcing G-d's Hand, Chas veShalom.

Reb Dov, That is why Nir Ben Artzi wrote that the Rabbis need to declare who Mashiach is. IOW he was challenging them to do their appointed duty. It could be they are the same Rabbis that are “holding back”, as the BeSHT is credited as the one who said it would be our Rabbis who would prevent the Geula.

11/16/2017 9:54 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Those Rabbis who supported joining Sharon's Govt in 5765 for 290 million shekels for their yeshivot delayed the Geulah. So they have a track record. The BeSh"T, while commenting on those Rabbis who would delay the Redemption, was referring to Mitnaged or Litwak Rabbis because of the Mitnaged decree that everyone had to bury their pain in order not to anticipate the next false Messiah after Shabtai Tzvi. That was truly the ONLY benefit of that Evil decree except in many instances they forgot to anticipate Mashiach altogether! As it turned out in 5765, the overwhelming support for joining Sharon for the money came from Litvak Chareidi Rabbis. This is not to say that all Litvak Rabbis supported Sharon for the money, but it is to say that the majority of Rabbis who supported Sharon and Shimon Peres were heads of Litvak yeshivot. The BeSh"T was proven 100% correct in his evaluation of what would happen after a community of Jews has buried their pain for 350 years. Not only would they find it difficult to feel their own sorrow and pain, but they would lose the capacity to feel the pain of others. This is in addition to those who behave as if the Galut will drag on for another 1000 years even if there are less than 225 years before they year 6000. How else can we explain that Moshe Gafni is STILL in charge of the Degel HaTorah faction after all these years after he was in charge of that faction when they joined Sharon without shame. And he STILL has never apologized. So yes, many of them need to be threatened to move the ball down.

And may Hashem thwart their evil plans and bring our redemption as soon as possible.

What Tori said is spot on. I believe that NBA falls in the category of Yechezkel 13:10. Moshiach is not in Israel, so I don't know what he's talking about. If he is implying Meir Ettinger, he is a Tzadik of the house of David, but cannot be the Moshiach.



It is clear that the Moshiach will come to Israel from exile, after Gog U Magog / Yom Hashem, when the wicked of the world have been destroyed, and he is victorious.

Micah 5:2
Therefore, He shall deliver them until the time a woman in confinement gives birth. And the rest of his brothers shall return upon the children of Israel.


Until then, Hashem has delivered the Messiah (born in exile) and his branch of the House of David (his brothers) to their enemies, until the woman (Jerusalem) gives birth (her exiled children are gathered in), after Gog U Magog / Yom Hashem.

Since the Summer of Promiscuous Love in 5727 (1967) until the present day, America has become a society obsessed with feeling pleasure, in particular with enjoying sexual pleasure. It is so prevalent now that the society has fallen below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah. While in 1967 the obsession revolved around heterosexual pleasures done in open spaces like a public park or while rolling in the mud at Woodstock, today every possible perversion from homosexuality to trans-gender sex is now glorified along with the original pleasures from 1967. I say this right now, because I was just perusing Foxnews. At this instant there are five top stories on Foxnews. Three out of Five of these stories on Foxnews.com deal with either graphic perversion OR with Al Franken's and Sylvester Stallone's inappropriate harassment and groping of women with all of the titillating photos attached to the stories. Foxnews has now officially become no better than what the National Enquirer was 35 years ago! And keep in mind that Donald Trump during the campaign often quoted the National Enquirer as if were an authoritative news source like Foxnews! American Society has degenerated into either being described as a corpulent pig or being enveloped by a Giant Condom. Seriously, I can't figure out what unites Americans today or what constitutes an American majority except to say that these perversions are so prevalent that the majority either engages in them, or they are titillated by reading about others who engage in them! There is no other way to describe what we are witnessing now. Preparations for WW3 are taking a back seat in the "serious" news to these stories about Sex, and so are stories about whether or not Congress will pass those long promised Trump tax cuts.

Yes, the tilting point has apparently been reached on the subject of wigs made of natural hair usually from India.

It seems that all of the Rabbanim from all streams of Jewish life have come to the conclusion that those haircut factories attached to Hindu Temples are actually places of Avodah Zarah just like the Temples themselves. So it seems.

About wigs

Wrong assumptions! No all hair from India.

Long story short, most human hair sources are located in Asia. Except from India sources of high quality hair are China and other asian countries. These hair has a very distinctive texture and tends to remain straight even after processing and styling.

Human hair can also be obtained from Brazil, Peru, Malaysia and some eastern European countries. The different hair textures can be blended and processed to produce the most popular look.

11/17/2017 7:44 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Meir: The blends are the problem. Indian hair is mixed with hair from other sources. Minimizing hair from idolatry does not cancel it out. So if a wig contains only 2% hair from an idolatrous source, there is still the issue of deriving benefit from Avodah Zarah. I expect those who disagree with this to correct me. Here we go again.

Dov, it must be Divine Providence that the topic of wigs keeps on coming up on this blog, and even more so in this week's Parasha.
The wig is the epitome of the Esavian culture, as you have been describing here, that the Torah is only a framework for enjoying Olam Hazeh. And any arguments that prove that wigs are permissible according to Halacha only emphasize this point.

Wigs - another facet to the discussion

Tikroves Avodah Zarah – An Item Used to Worship an Idol

One of the laws relating to idol worship is the prohibition against using tikroves Avodah Zarah, that is, not to benefit from an item that was used to worship Avodah Zarah. According to the accepted halachic opinion, the prohibition against using tikroves Avodah Zarah is min haTorah (Rambam, Hilchos Avodah Zarah 7:2; cf. Tosafos Bava Kamma 72b s.v. de’i, who rules that the prohibition is only miderabanan).

So we have a machlokes since there are opinions that Tikroves Avodah Zarah is issur miderabanan and safek miderabanan lekola (lenient). So it this case we even have to sfekos, one abut tikroves and one if there is a mixture of Indian hair in the sheitel that is not explicitly made of Indian hair or manufactured in India.

It should be noted that one is permitted to use items that are donated to Avodah Zarah, provided these items are not used for worship. Thus, gold, jewelry, and other valuables donated to a Hindu temple may be used.

The reason that sxx is now so prevalent in the news is because it must be outed. After all it is one of the reasons for the downfall of a nation (Rome, Greece, Persia). Also, it is the modus operandi of the Sitra Achra/Satan to bring down people (like Chava in Gan Eden). What one reads now has been going on for many many years (kept in secret our of fear), but now out in the open. In order to take down the Satan, his works have to come out in the open - BRAZENNESS. Then his downfall and all those lost to him will disappear like VAPOR.

In this regard, one last sordid affair (pedoxxx) is beginning to be exposed. It involves Donkeys and Elephants, maybe half the government. That will really be the downfall of this Edom Golus. Once the gov is torn asunder, Trump may rise to his greatness, or fall with the rest. All the idols need to be crushed.

Then Eretz Yisrael will be moved fully in the direction of Hashem.

Meir, about those clumps of false hair, they are not the way of our Imahos, Sarah, Rivka, Rochel, Leah. They all wore scarves/tichels to cover their beautiful hair (which was not forbidden to their husbands). The same way they covered their bodies with flowing clothing. That makes a Jewish woman beautiful; what is hidden is beautified and respected. Respect for humankind has diminished in proportion to the obscenity all around us. It must be restored.

Any “excuse” given by women for wearing wigs comes from their fear of not being attractive. Beauty comes from within (from the neshoma), sparkles the eyes, and shows compassion and humility. This gives birth to and raises beautiful children; only the mother can give the child the foundation for a life dedicated to Hashem. Our bodies are the enclosures for our neshoma. The neshoma is the life within us.

Trump is cunning and in my opinion he tries to lure Israel into feeling safe with him. Trump is a keen supporter of the Saudi peace plan and he has also stated again and again that he wants to attain the (real estate) deal of the century by making peace between Israel and the Pals. We all know that there cannot be any peace with inherent haters and enemies of Israel (cf Rabbi Kessin). And the Saudis are not less haters and enemies of Israel than Iran. We also know that any deal with the Pals would include serious concessions by Israel.

Koran 3 :28: "Muslims must not take the infidels as friends."

Meir, a slight correction to my previous comment:
I forgot that the "like" in "snake-like" was actually part of the gimatria itself.
So I should have said: Just as in the case of Trump acting positively towards Israel, you certainly wouldn't have titled your comments "Trump the Mashiach Ben David", so calling him "Trump the snake like" doesn't stand the test of reality.
These two gimatrias are just symbols of the spiritual forces that are pulling him. Possibly he's actively trying to choose but wobbling, as Dov seems to think, or else he's just another Achashverosh who's only after his personal desires and is willing to sway in the direction of the highest bidder.

As many times before, I could be wrong in my analysis, but I honestly don't think the Saudis nor Trump are willing to condition taking care of the Iranian threat to an Israeli-Palestinian deal. The new Salman is very pragmatic. He only cares about his interests, even if he has to ignore the Fakestinians and go against wahabism. If Saudis and Israelis are willing to go together against Iran and destroy the ayatollahs once and for all, that would be some kind of teshuva by Ishmael before Mashiach comes, don't you think?

From Nir ben Artzi:
The Holy One, blessed be He, said that there would be a vision for Israel's rabbis - it would be a vision! There will be a vision for the rabbis of Israel, great Torah scholars and great scholars - they will see a vision! Do not wait to see what will and what will not be, what this rabbi says and what this rabbi says. Even though they are delayed - the vision is reduced, it will be a spectacle for the great rabbis and Torah scholars! We Jews must not be questionable, even the smallest: 'What about the vision, when will the vision be.' Not to be clever with the Creator. You shall be innocent with the Lord your G–d. A vision will be for the rabbis in the dream, the great Torah scholars and Torah scholars!

A letter to the Snake-Like Trump

Cutting Israel in half isn’t the answer, Mr. President


We only know what we read in the papers and according to The New York Times it appears that you, Mr. President, will soon be coming up with a plan to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs and, which, as I read it, could only have been written by PA “chairman” Mahmoud Abbas.

The deal gives him everything and gives Israel nothing except Hamas/ISIS smack in the middle of the country.

Trump is being forced into wanting a deal. He needs his Sunni Arab Alliance against Iran, and demanding that Israel divide itself in two is one of the costs of the Sunni Arabs reciprocating on the Alliance. He so obviously does think that Abbas and company are either terrorists or people who glorify the Murdering of Jews. So Trump is in a bind. The best that he can do is to delay any official announcement of the Saudi Piece deal until after hostilities begin with Iran. This explains why Trump has dragged his feet on this for ten months already. He probably would like to delay an official announcement as long as he can, secretly praying that the hot war with Iran begins sooner rather than later.

And then MBS, Mohammed bin Salman, must be crowned king which is what very likely will occur ..... barring those unforeseen circumstances. The Whippersnapper King "seems" poised to take over. He has already had that Yalkut Shimoni meeting with Trump when he was just the Defense Minister and then again when he was promoted to Crown Prince.

I love it when the MSM calls these men the most dangerous men in the world because the World of Lies in which they thrive is about to be torn asunder. And notice how the worst of the Jew hating media is invariably in Great Britain, a nation whose essence is Hypocrisy and Crookedness, (never straight. The essence of England is to be Angular, never yashar. and murderous, Saxon from the Hebrew word Sachin meaning knife.) THIS very deed is why G-d wanted Donald Trump to be POTUS, and the Jew hating media hates them for it. Wonderful!

And this Wikipedia article says reams about the pressure on Trump to force Israel to divide itself. From the day that MBS was promoted to Crown Prince on the 21st of June 2017 (27th of Siwan 5777):

On the day he became Crown Prince, U.S. President Donald Trump called Mohammad bin Salman to "congratulate him on his recent elevation". Trump and the new crown prince pledged "close cooperation" on security and economic issues, according to the White House, and the two leaders also discussed the need to cut off support for terrorism (a reference to discussions about Iran), the recent diplomatic dispute with Qatar (also about Iran), and the push to secure peace between Israel and the Palestinians.[47] Mohammad bin Salman told the Washington Post in April 2017 that without America's cultural influence on Saudi Arabia, "we would have ended up like North Korea."

It says reams and explains perfectly why we should be praying for Both Sides to Lose.

Dov, I'm not saying that the Saudis don't want to divide Israel sooner or later, but I don't think that the new Salman is willing to wait for Israel to give away land to the Fakestinians BEFORE taking care of the ayatollahs. In other words, I don't think they are stupid enough to sacrifice their own basic interests and push for an Israeli-Palestinian "peace" deal (which in the best case scenario would take a long time) as a precondition to address the Iranian threat. Once the war against Iran is finished, why would Israel care what the Saudis or Americans say about the Palestinker piss process? Iran is out! Israel will be in a much better position. Then Israel will be able to resist the pressure until Mashiach decides to show up and destroy every nation that dares to tell us what to do. What do you think?

11/21/2017 2:11 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The opposite would occur. If Mashiach does not come as a direct result of this war, then the US, because of Saudi economic potential (that is key) would go to Israel and say, "You have to self-divide yourself because the entire world (UNSC) wants it done." Remember Beit Lavan the Arami will always change our wages, our bread and butter so that we can exist, in order to line his own pocketbook.

But the Yalkut Shimoni is clear when this war begins, from the moment it begins, The Time of Our Redemption has arrived! So no fear, Mashiach comes as a direct and immediate result of this War. There will be no aftermath for the Saudis to influence Beit Lavan to change our wages for the 100th time because Arabia will exist to serve Israel so that Israel can serve G-d, and Lavan? I am not sure if Lavan has a place in Yemot HaMashiach. He is not Amaleq, but he tried to destroy us through impoverishment and by marrying us into his shysterhood.

Reb Dov and Meir M,

Back to an earlier comment when we discussed how Aram was usually Syria but in the context of Yalkt Shmoni meant "Edom", I wonder if you saw yaak's (of Yeranen Yaacov) comment on the Shirat Devorah blog posting about Rav Mendel Kessin's shiur on Yishmael?

yaak posted this:

"4) The famous Yalkut Shimoni speaks of Arabia getting advice from Aram, which is likely a censored rendering of "Edom" as the Pesikta Rabbati has explicitly. However, earlier versions of the Yalkut says Arabia gets advice "from them", which likely refers back to the aforementioned "nations of the world" who were provoking each other. Who are the nations of the world who have low-level wars (provoking) going on all the time? The United States and Israel. Not that they started the provoking - rather they retaliate for it and they are therefore provoking the provokers."

And this about the Court Jews Kushner and Greenblatt

From what I’m reading in the Times and now from another source covered here through Arutz Sheva, this big new deal gives the Palestinian Arabs millions of dollars and a separate country inside the heart of Israel – and what does Israel get? Israel gets pushed around.

Your [Trump's] emissaries to the region spied the Land and came back with a false report. They termed Israel’s enemies as giants and featured the Hebrews as grasshoppers.

When did Israel become a beggar panhandling for scraps of its own sovereign territory?

It's surprising that none see the danger of the entire supposed adversity between Saudi Arabia and Iran. There are high hopes that the two countries will engage in a war. The first naive man is D Trump, who really doesn't understand the islamic mentality. The war against Yemen is just a bait to show the world that Arabs are killing each other.
The Saudi-Iranian play is another scenario that convinced D Trump they are stupid, thus he is pressing Yisrael to make promises of a future Palestinian State.
The monarch in waiting MBS is a clever man who understands the Western way of reasoning. He will say: We are willing to fight Iran, give us weapons, and we become friends with Yisrael! He will also say: We own to the US a great deal, and we are greatful, let us be good friends and you help us to become as civilised as you are!
And the stupid will believe the artful. Both Saudi Arabia and Iran will get advanced weapons. The other side in Lebanon will also be ready for the war The three will unite to devastate Yisrael (! Remember Ezekiel). By that time US won't even exist, the Western Europe will be devastated, the remnant of Yisrael driven into desert.
You may believe people in Yisrael deserve mercy? For what? For the gay parades in Yerushalayim? For the Erev Rav leadership? For ...
Your high hope that Yishmael will simple commit suicide is bad judgement. Don't forget that a certain point in time Yishmael will be the most powerful.
Since coming to power Trump hasn't done anything he promised, no embassy in Yerushalayin, no approval of settlements, no stopping of funding the Palestinian Authority, no stopping of Iranian drive to have nuclear weapons. They have already thanks to Obama.

It is ridiculous ! Trump knows it and Israel should stick with it too. Dov, and others, understanding the dirty dealings of politics is not your greatest talent. It serves you right though! Iran will steam ahead regardless as Ginno said. Time moves on. Even if they all miraculously unite against Israel, Israel will still win this version of events, right?

Dov, though I am no fan of the king, he has information on the historical location of the Temples based on the Tanach, Josephus and the RaDaQ. Though it disagrees with the tradition, I am sure it was not worth starting a war based on error. I know the touchiness of this subject and as much as I did not like any Jewish leader caving into the Arabs for any reason, in this case he probably made a good choice. I was made aware of this shortly after that episode.

I cannot wait for the day for the corruption here to fall. The average citizen suffers incredibly because of it and most of all since we are to be the light unto the Nations, what kind of light are we giving out. Not good as we need a trauma surgeon to heal the sick, the Mashiach.

Of course, we deserve Rachamim! Try not to be foolish about this. We are limping into these final moments of Olam HaZeh with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and G-d knows it. Getting more lashes and more pain will accomplish NOTHING except alienation from G-d, the One who is holding the whip. You can only whip a child enough times before the whip becomes useless and meaningless unless a certain group of children really are reshayim and rebellious in a way that ignores G-d's laws of common decency. Most Jews in Israel do not ignore these laws even if a significant minority ignore these laws.

Guys, I want to share something with you...

Rabbi Yissachar Teichtal in his book Eim Habanim Smeicha [Hebrew edition] pages 200,201 explains: that the Rebbe of Gur, (Rabbi Avraham Mordechay Alter z”l) held that the mitzvah of building and settling the land of Israel is not dependent on a particular time period, but rather only on our pragmatic ability to perform the mitzvah and he meant thus to negate the minority opinion, that this mitzvah is dependent on the arrival of the Messiah. http://vilnagaon.org/rabbi-yissachar-s-teichtal-hyd-a-victim-of-the-holocaust-explains-why-hashem-let-it-happen/

Rabbi Yissachar Teichtal commented (Eim Habanim Smeicha [Hebrew edition] ,page 175):
Behold that our master, Maimonides (Rambam) blamed
our ancestors for the destruction of our land and our Temple because they did
not engage in learning warfare or the conquest of lands, rather they wasted
their days with null and vanity and relied upon this.
And why did he not blame them for not engaging in Torah and Divine Service as we
would expect him to say?
We are thus forced to answer, that
this by itself, is not sufficient. And this is accordance with the words of
Ramban (Nachmanides) in a number of places (in his commentary on the Torah)
that one does not rely upon miracles, rather one has to all that he can do by
natural means and then the assistance will come from heaven.

As usual, Dov was right. The House of Saud is the same old regime that seeks to divide Israel for the Palestinkers' sake. The same ridiculous demands for the "huge price" of having formal relations with Arab countries (not to mention missiles falling into Ben Gurion airport and terror tunnels leading into Israel's heartland), despite they need Israel much more than Israel needs them (hint: Saudi oil will be expendable in the next few years). HOWEVER, the Arab didn't say a peace deal between Israel and the fake nation is a prerequisite to secretly cooperate to deal with the ayatollahs. It seems plausible that Israel and Saudi will be on the same side in a war against Iran. After that is finnished, maybe the world will try to push another piss process to take half of Israel, although probably Mashiach will show up by then to take care of business with the nations once and for all.

But you can do something very easy, research where Fortress Antonia stood. As far as the location of the cornerstone, its hidden in plain sight. I understand the volatility that we might have something wrong, how could that be possible.

Neshama, I was referring to the king (small k)as I am aware that he has the same information.

Ginno, correct, we have to do something then we will have the help of heaven, but we cannot make the same mistakes as those who wrote the War Scroll (Qumran) and their logic. If we do that something based on a person already doing something with Divine acknowledgement, we will be ok, though it will be the ultimate test of emunah from all parties involved.

Shiloh: The Red Heifer was slaughtered on the Mt. of Olives while its head was turned 90 degrees and was facing the Holy of Holies directly through the Temple's most Eastern Gate. In short there was a direct line from the highest point on the Mt. of Olives through what we would call today Sha'ar HaRachamim or Sha'ar HaZahav (the Golden Gate which is all sealed up right now) to the spot where the Ark of the Covenant sat on the Even Shtiyah of the Holy of Holies. So through the Golden Gate to the Ark of the Covenant from the Mt. of Olives is a straight line. This only works if the Temple was precisely where we believe it was on the Temple Mount, for from the highest point on the Mt. of Olives today, one can stare at the Golden Gate so that if it were unsealed, we would see the spot where the Holy of Holies once was and still is. http://www.templeinstitute.org/red_heifer/ceremony.htm

I am not the same Shiloh. I do not agree with the other Shiloh who believes that the temple location is in different spot than we think. The currently existing walls and stone floor of Har Habyit are the remnants of Herod's temple. Most everything from that temple that stood on top of its stone floor was removed (as far as I know) and the other structures were built later. It only makes sense that foreign invaders, out of spite, would seek to build their own temples/shrines in the location our most holy place: Har Moriah.

You may have thought I was the other Shiloh because I have said things contrary to the Oral Tradition in the past.

I would remind everyone that the Evil at the End of Days comes from the North (via Lebanon and Southwestern Syria), but the Final Shofar blast of the Final Redemption will be while HaShem "is traveling" on the Stormwinds of Yemen in the South.

Trump Revealed to Russians Sayeret Matkal, Mossad, Syria Operation

With that act which, should it be prosecuted could find the president guilty of treason, Trump created two catastrophes. One, as a senior Israeli military official put it bluntly, “Trump betrayed us, and if we can’t trust him, then we’re going to have to do what is necessary on our own if our back is up against the wall with Iran.”; and two, as former CIA deputy director Michael Morell put it, “The Russians will undoubtedly try to figure out the source or the method of this information to make sure that it is not also collecting on their activities in Syria—and in trying to do that they could well disrupt the source.”

By which the spy master meant the Russians, the Syrians, or the Iranians were certain to hunt down and execute the Israeli agent who was deep enough inside ISIS to be able to point out the room where the terror group conducts its operational meetings.

Before the Trump inauguration, Mossad officers participated in a conference at the CIA headquarters in Langley where they were told that American intelligence agencies believe that Russian president Vladimir Putin has “leverages of pressure” over Trump, and that Israel should “be careful,” since sensitive information its agencies share with the White House and the National Security Council could be leaked to the Russians, who would share it with Iran.

In other words, the Mossad should have known better than to share information gotten under such dangerous circumstances with a suspected Manchurian Candidate.

Joel: shortly after the Yalkut Shimoni War begins, when Iran goes forth to "expand its gains against the Western Roman Empire for 12 months" as the Medrash Sefer Eliyahu mentions and explains. According to that Medrash, Persia goes forth after confronting the Western Romans or the West in three consecutive years. The first confrontation after the nuclear accord with the United States and five other Western European countries was on 12th Jan. 2016 almost two years ago. Does that mean we are entering the third year of confrontation imminently? I don't know for sure. There is no way of knowing for sure except to say that we are very very close.

One thing seems obvious though. Persia will NOT be falling into the hands of Rome. That would have been the result if the War were in 5777 during Donald Trump's first nine months as President. Hoshana Rabbah 5778, exactly nine months later, came and went, and still Trump was procrastinating by falsely thinking that a delay was in his favor. So we are on the Rome (or the West) falling into the hands of Persia scenario and trajectory. America and company (Germany, France, Great Britain, etc.) will likely lose this war before the son of Gigi from the Lebanese Chouf Mountains will finally stop Persia.

Or it could start in the Korean Theater as per the Zohar VaEira 32, one of those two fronts or maybe both at the same time! When? I won't pretend to know for sure, but it should be obvious that we are moments away. A moment might last two days or two weeks, but will not last three more years. What is good now is that the parties described in the Yalkut Shimoni are now playing their parts to perfection.

Dov because bas you say the west might lose the war against persia, should Jews who live in the states and Europe make Aliyah ? I don't understand because the lubavitcher rebbe has always been right with his predictions and he has told everyone that the last geulah won't be be like the first one , meaning in the last one everyone will be redeemed, not only 20% like in the first one. Ran nir ben Artzi has said in his talks that there won't be be any war with Korea.. all this is very confusing.
Also will the war between Saudi Arabia and Iran precede or follow the war of Iran against the west? Now what about the other yalkut shimoni where it says that Saudi Arabia will ask advice from the king of Edom etc and in the meantime Iran will destroy the world? Which war is that,the one of Iran against the west ? Please clarify . Which form will the war of Iran against the west take?
For a the moment it doesn't seem like there will war between the saudiz and Iranians anytime soon,

Daniel, if you didn't take Reb Dov's words seriously, I could take up a lot more space here. Others have written better than I, and have had more exposure to the reality. You said:

"You may believe people in Yisrael deserve mercy? For what? For the gay parades in Yerushalayim? For the Erev Rav leadership? For ...
Your high hope that Yishmael will simple commit suicide is bad judgement. Don't forget that a certain point in time Yishmael will be the most powerful."

You must not hang out with regular Yehudim Yisraelim. Do you live here or even visit? Your words betray your lack of any idea how to look at the issues you point out as taking merit from us. Could an average Israeli Jewish reader expect a smidgen of empathy from you? I am not going to waste my "breath" explaining if you are not going to listen. And neither will any other Israeli. You are fortunate to receive the words from Reb Dov that you have, above.

Regarding the previous comment, for sure Israeli Jews deserve much more mercy that American Jews (70-80% voted for Obama and Hillary). Over 20% of Israeli Jews are religious, compared to 10% of American Jews. Most American Jews married goim, which is not the case in Israel. The Torah is much stronger in Israel than America, where you have "Orthodox rabbis" that invite Christian missionaries to their synagogues and support homosexuality (in Israel someone like that would be put in cherem). The biggest gedolim and yeshivot are in Israel. I could go on, but you get the point.

That 50 Billion to clean up Lebanon, I heard by Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi Shlit”a on one of his latest shiurim. The Saudis offered that to Israel to do its bidding. Obviously, they don’t want to antagonize Iran at this moment. The Rabbi is going to be in Israel until Chanukah. Why? He didn’t say. I am guessing it might have to do with his CD’s. We could help him reach even more Neshomas than he does, by buying some of his CD’s or donating to his mission. He promises untold reward in Shamayim for anyone that does.

Just in case, stock up on water and basic essentials.

Dov, let me touch on a couple of points here. The "rock" that protrudes up, currently hidden by the muzlim shrine measures 58 ft x 51 ft. The Holy of Holies measured 30 ft x 30 ft. Adding to that, it is not flat by any stretch of the imagination. There are absolutely NO records of this protruding rock in any source including the Temple Scrolls from Qumran, the Mishna, Talmud and Tanach. The Tanach is crystal clear that the City of David and Mt Zion are synonymous. According to Josephus, War of the Jews, he cites that the 10th Legion (6,000 to 10,000 men) were housed in Fortress Antonia. The water supply for them came from an aqueduct from Bethlehem and stored in 37 man made cisterns. Remember, Jews and Romans did not mingle. So where did the water come from for the Temple, the still running Gihon Spring, the ONLY water source that is in Jerusalem close to the location. This syphon spring gushing up to 400 ft as recorded filled a natural cavern that flowed by gravity to the site of the Temple. So, what happened to the hill that the Temple was built upon. When Antiochus IV Epiphanes defiled the alter by sacrificing a pig on it, Simon the Hasmonean with 3000 men working day and night leveled the hill moving the soil from the site of the alter to the upper city that you can still see today just outside the Dung gate. Why did he do so, besides the obvious defiling, he felt it was too easy to conquer. Again, David built Davids Citidel next to the Temple (no, it is not the fake one by Shaare Yafo either) in the City of David. Where did David set up the Alter? According to the Tanach, II Samuel 24:18 "Gad came to David on that day and said to him, Go up, erect and alter to HaShem on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite." Continue reading to verse 25 where it states David built an alter there to haShem, and he offered elevation-offerings and peace offerings. HaShem answered the prayers of the land, and the pestilence ceased from Israel". So since David obviously did not build the Temple but where did Solomon build the Temple? Look at II Chronicles 3:1 "Solomon then began building the Temple of HaShem in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where He had appeared to his father David. He established it at David's place, on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite." The Tanach is clear on this matter. I can go on. But our tradition that is written in "stone" is wrong, completely wrong in this matter. So please explain to me who then is stopping the building of the Third Temple, who is delaying the geulah? The evidence is very clear.

So you attack my character, accusing me of chutzpah when I can QUOTE actual sources. I don't care what you hold to when it is in error including our tradition. EVEN the Rambam declares the Mashiach (whomever God HAS decided on that according to NBA the rabbi's will be forced to reveal, that means he is here, concealed) will repair the breaches of the Torah. Well Dov, here is one hell of a big breach whether we like it or not. I am not being critical of the rav, I am critical that HE DID NOT KNOW (and that is ok) and that is very well known. It is very easy how we can tear apart the traditions of Esav and Ishmael and we believe we are infallible to any error. We have error, if we correct the few areas of error, we can return to our glorious days but sadly our tradition is getting in the way. We can change history forever, but tradition and those who are unwilling to see are stopping this whole thing dead in its tracks. I hope your readers atleast can open the Tanach and read it for themselves.

Dov, you asked what would he gain. Maybe by doing so he kept the site undefiled for 2000 years now so that we can build the third Temple! It kept the focus off of the real location fooling the world. Whether he did it intentionally or by chance, only he knows, but at anyrate, it worked out just fine. Can you imagine how the muzzi's would react when we ignore the wrong site and build the correct site and be blessed by God just as David was. Think outside the box just for a second.

Anon 11/23/2017 7:11 PM, I agree with your final sentence. However, you should read my comment closer.

First of all, kindly note the location of the quotation marks; I did not write the sentence you are critiquing. You should address the person who actually wrote it.

Secondly, Daniel is correct; at a certain point in time before the end, Yishmael will be most powerful. (I think he may have forgotten the word "at" there, possibly a minor point.) What he wrote implies a temporary state of affairs. A point in time, not a period of time. It was only his "piling on" to the Jewish People that I had issue with.

A really good book on the topic, if you don't already have it, is The Ishmaelite Exile by R' Yechiel Weitzman.

Shiloh: Ok, you had your say on this matter. Because this is so speculative, I don't want to go any further into depth on this. Until evidence is presented to the contrary, we believe that the Temples were where we think they were. But for clarity, one last time, where do you believe the Holy Temples stood? You brought up so many assorted claims, it is a bit well actually VERY confusing. Much of what you wrote above is difficult to follow. Again I just want to know where you think the Temples stood, and we will end discussion of this matter right there.

And yes, Rebbe knew where the Temples stood because his teachers knew where the Temples stood. It is a chutzpah to claim that 2000 years later, we know better than he did. Chutpah is not a Name (as in name calling), but it is a way of describing such a claim that we know better than he did.

Can’t we follow the Kotel wall in all its directions to estimate something? We know who built the wall. It surrounds one side of the Temple Mount, no? From an aerial view, we can estimate something also. And from all the digging, we can come up with a partial floor plan, no? There needs to be some visual sighting. Compare this to the written description. And all the work being done by the City of David surely contributes.

For some reason, every generation since Mt. Sinai, there rise up new Oral Torah bashers who consider themselves to be the first enlightened Jews to expose the "great lie". Luckily, and to their misfortune, Judaism never engaged in the false religions' practice, of locking their knowledge in the hands of an elite, then feeding lies to the multitudes and forbidding them to ask real questions. There was never an instance that the Jewish nation fell asleep allowing its tradition to be be falsified (this generation is no exception, with the help of excellent thinkers such as this blog's owner).
Just as these bashers themselves prove the truth of the giving of Torah at Sinai, with the unarguable fact that an event that was witnessed by 600,000 men couldn't have been fabricated, nor can you fool each successive generation that receives a direct recounting of it - they'll have to admit that there's no way to hide an entire mountain from a whole generation, and force them and all their descendants to believe in a different one.
It seems that Shiloh thinks that the post 2nd temple Rabbis had the power to convince the nation that they had the wrong tradition. Then, based on that assumption, he thinks - why can't he do the same thing himself 2000 years later...

Part of the problem for getting a complete archaeological picture of what was on top of the Temple Mount is that the Wakf has made a concerted effort to destroy the archaeological evidence that anything Jewish was ever up there! They spent years taking dump trucks up to the northern entrances to the Temple Mount and bulldozing tons and tons of dug up dirt into them and dumping the contents in the Qidron Valley below. Only recently over the last decade or 15 years has there been a concerted effort on our part to sift through all the dirt that they carted on out of there. There is an archaeological dig going on of this dirt which is of course not in its pristine archaeological state off one of the roads that intersects with Wadi Al Joz. https://www.timesofisrael.com/temple-mount-project-yields-treasure-but-unearths-conflict/

In this case the coin was from the Crusader Period, and unlike gold silver oxidizes and corrodes. Sadly when the collective dirt from different time periods is plowed up and deposited elsewhere in dirt piles, the archaeological layering that usually takes place separating time periods is completely lost by a terrorist attack against the historical record. Also if the spot was plowed under by an ancient terrorist against the historical record like Hadrian after the Bar Kochba Revolt who plowed under the Temple Mount, much of the archaeological record from what came before Hadrian was also lost. It is not just ISIS who are fiends against the historical record. I think ISIS destroyed Yonah the Prophet's gravesite.

MBS of the House of Saud means business. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was hung upside down by American questioners Alwaleed was Trump's Saudi nemesis during the election campaign. This is so bizarre and points to a high degree of cooperation between the US and MBS.

Chazak ubaruch princess Hotovely! Let's face it, most American Jews are a disgrace for our people. They betrayed their nation and their G-d long time ago. Let's hope that the minority over there who keeps mitzvot and learn Torah will protect them from another tragedy.

I want to tell the kofer above that the scientific evidence that made me do teshuva, I got it from the Oral Torah (without which you cant' keep a simple mitzvah from the written Torah, including tefilin, shabbat, kashrut, brit mila, etc)... thank you rabbi Mizrachi

Extracted from Berachot 32b: The Gemara cites a midrash on the following verse from Isaiah, relating to the sin of the Golden Calf and Moses’ supplication for forgiveness: “But Zion said: The Lord has forsaken me and the Lord has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her suckling baby, that she would not have compassion for the child of her womb? These may forget, but you I will not forget” (Isaiah 49:14–15). The Gemara seeks to clarify: Forsaken is the same as forgotten. They are synonymous; why repeat the same idea twice? Reish Lakish said: The community of Israel said before the Holy One, Blessed be He: Master of the Universe, even when a man marries a second wife after his first wife, he certainly recalls the deeds of his first wife. Yet You have not only forsaken me, but You have forgotten me as well. The Holy One, Blessed be He, said to Israel: *My daughter, I created twelve constellations in the firmament, and for each and every constellation I have created thirty armies, and for each and every army I have created thirty legions [ligyon], and for each and every legion I have created thirty infantry division leaders [rahaton], and for each and every infantry division leader I have created thirty military camp leaders [karton], and for each and every military camp leader I have created thirty leaders of forts [gastera], and on each and every leader of a fort I have hung three hundred and sixty-five thousand stars corresponding to the days of the solar year. And all of them I have created only for your sake; and you said the Lord has forsaken me and the Lord has forgotten me?* https://www.sefaria.org/Berakhot.32b.16?lang=bi&with=all&lang2=en
(Conclusion: The stars in the universe comprise a number of 19 digits! And this was said when there was no NASA or telescopes, people back then thought there were a few thosaunds stars, until Galileo invented the first telescope 400 years ago) There are other proofs, but that should be enough for a clever person

Something does not make sense about the Trump laptop bomb story.
Why would Trump need to brag about his "Israeli source?"
In fact, why would Trump need to tell the Russians anything at all?
As soon as the USA imposed the laptop ban, the Russians would have known anyway that the USA had intelligence about it.
There would have been no need for Trump to tell the Russians anything.
So what exactly did Mossad tell Trump?
I cannot believe they told him anything other than the above bare minimum.
i.e. "We picked up conversations about plans to convert laptops into bombs".
The American security agencies and the Russians would easily understand that Israel had a double agent and/or eavesdropping facilities inside ISIS.
They would suspect that anyway.
And now that the Mossad have revealed their mission into Syria...again...why reveal it?
Is it a public relations effort by the Israeli government?
I think there is a complex game of disinformation going on, involving more than one country.

Response to Dov

First Hotovely is correct in her statement. Second we should rid ourselves of political correctness and start to tell the truth. Political correctness is the manufacture of the globalist and is certainly not the path of H'.

Below support to Hotovely claim by Rabbi Nachman Kahana

The Midrash (Bamidbar 15) relates that the Jews were deceptively drawn into slavery by their overzealous patriotism to Egypt. They eagerly answered the call for voluntary national service, when at the end of the day they found themselves slaves to Paro.

President Trump sincerely seeks to make America great again. He has plans, programs, ideas, proposal, propositions, projects, procedures, strategy, stratagems etc., on how to go about realizing his dream. But however ambitious and diverse these objectives might be, they are all contingent on one factor – patriotism. For if there is no love of country and willingness to sacrifice for its security and economic advancement nothing will change.

The secular, reform and conservatives are the most patriotic of Jews; feeling as American as anyone whose ancestors came on the Pilgrim’s Mayflower ship, because their connection to Eretz Yisrael is non-existent.

The religious segment of American Jewry is, despite some warm feeling for the holy land, total loyalty as citizens of America, even relying on halachic sources to base their attachment to that gentile county.

In a very short time the Jews of America will have the opportunity to exhibit their love and devotion to the “stars and stripes”.

One way of making America great again, was expressed by President Trump when he declared his intention to increase the military by at least an additional two hundred thousand soldiers. His declared war on Islamic terror will require the presence of American troops in many parts of the globe, including Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. Mr. Trump will not get 200 thousand capable intelligent volunteers for the expanded military. He will have to introduce a selective service act (draft) to reach that number.

To state it plainly: Your sons and daughters will be drafted into the US military. I have stated this many times in the past, but the time will soon arrive when it will become reality.

The price for your patriotism to a gentile country over your devotion to HaShem’s holy land will be paid in full by your sons and daughters. Instead of spending years in yeshiva or seminary in Israel, your sons and daughters will be crawling on their stomachs in the boot camps of Georgia and Texas, in preparation to be shipped out for years to places whose names you can’t even spell.

Response to LondonMale

Readers of this blog are all familiar with my position concerning the Snake-Like Trump. One of the posters suggested that I have a look at research performed by Historical and Investigative Research HIR. They analyze the evolution of ethnic processes, with a special focus on racism, and particularly anti-Semitism; prestige processes; the evolution of language; the structure of narrative memory; the structure and interaction of media and political processes; the laws of history; Western geopolitics; and the political history of the West.

If I summarize the conclusion it comes out

Trump will be another version of Obama

*Donald Trump, Mr. ‘anti-Establishment,’ getting mostly people from the Obama and Bush Jr. administrations to fill appointments with top foreign-policy responsibility. He is using mostly people that have been heavily involved with pro-jihadi and anti-Israeli policies
*Dispels the impression created by the Trump-Netanyahu summit, exposing Trump’s continuity with the anti-Israeli policies of his predecessors.
* David Petraeus

When Roger Ailes, FOX News founder, wanted to convince General David Petraeus—chosen by Obama to run CENTCOM and then also the CIA—to launch a republican presidential campaign funded by Rupert Murdoch, he sent McFarland in person.

What policies does Petraeus favor?

If McFarland and her former bosses at FOX News—allegedly the ‘pro-Israel’ network—are so besotted with Petraeus that they want him for president, then he must be a staunch Zionist, no? Doesn’t seem that way.
During his tenure at CENTCOM, with the full weight of his prestige as commander of US forces in the Middle East and North Africa, Petraeus became a ‘political general,’ demanding publicly that Obama force the Israelis, at long last, to create a PLO/Fatah state and thus keep the Muslim states happy.

* NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR H.R. McMaster

On the Israeli front, what can we expect?
Well, McMaster belongs to David Petraeus’ circle and, as noted above, Petraeus—Obama’s man—has been quite adamant that the Israelis should be made to genuflect and forced to accept the creation of a PLO/Fatah state in Judea and Samaria (see McFarland).McMaster now promises that Trump will call for “Palestinian self-determination” in his trip to Israel.
* DEFENSE SECRETARY James Mattis

Who did Mattis want as undersecretary for policy? Anne Patterson.

Patterson is reportedly close to David Petraeus, the general who loudly calls for removing Judea and Samaria from Israel to create there an independent PLO/Fatah state (see McFarland). She is also close to Leon Panetta. And, perhaps not coincidentally, Patterson seems cozy, too, with the Muslim Brotherhood.

So ee see Donald Trump, Mr. ‘anti-Establishment,’ getting mostly people from the Obama and Bush Jr. administrations to fill appointments with top foreign-policy responsibility. He is using mostly people that have been heavily involved with pro-jihadi and anti-Israeli policies, which, as explained in Part 2, are quite traditional.

The HIS analysis support my claim abou Trump the Snake-Like and unfortunately also about his Court Jews Jarred Kushner and Jason Greenblatt although the lather two have may have other motives for their involvment too.

As expected here it comes: Donald Trump Wants Ivanka and Jared Kushner to Move Back Home to NYC

I advised earlier: Trump, Kushner Greenblatt ad nauseum: Keep Your Deals for Yourselves

Believe me that Trump will get high approval ratings in the USA before the Arabs here will be willing to live in peace with Jews/the State of Israel. So, the bottom line is that instead of joining to world in trying to pressure Israel into suicide, Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt should polish up POTUS’s image in their home country. There’s more of a chance they’ll succeed in that quest.


President Donald Trump has told his daughter Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, to move back to New York, fueling rumors of a strained relationship between his son-in-law and senior adviser, according to a new report.

Kushner’s influence in the White House appears to be waning, signaling that the couple could soon be leaving town. Vanity Fair reported that chief of staff John Kelly has “clipped his wings.”

Kushner is reportedly growing concerned about the Russia probe.

Koran 8 :60: "Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels."
Koran 8 :65: "The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them."
Koran 9 :5: "When opportunity arises kill the infidels wherever you find them."
Koran 9 :30: "The Jews and Christians are perverts, fight them."
Koran 9 :123: "Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood."
Koran 22 :19: "Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water, melt their skins and bellies."
Koran 47 :4: "Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them."

Amazing. When Rabbi Kessin described a certain scenario: This is what came to mind, as explained by Keitzmeguleh: …Achishena
Hashem is hastening the Geulah!

B'itah Achishenah
One of the more famous verses in Tanach regarding the Geulah is the last verse of chapter 60 in Yeshayahu: הקטן יהיה לאלף והצעיר לגוי עצום, אני ה' בעתה אחישנה The smallest one will be for a thousand and the young lad for a mighty nation, I am Hashem, in its time I will hasten it.

The Gemara in Masechet Sanhedrin says: If they merit it, "I will hasten it"; if they don't merit it, "in its time". This division complements what I've written before. If we do sufficient Teshuvah we will be redeemed, and if not, it will still happen but only at its appointed time. It is pointed out in Kol HaTor, however, that is not the plain meaning of the verse. The second half of the verse has no conditions. In its time it will be hastened. This is a biblical promise that we will not have to wait until the very end, the year 6000.
Kol HaTor further explains that the verse itself tells us what to do. When will the second half of the verse happen? After the first part of the verse happens. The smallest one will be a thousand? That means that we will reach the last level of one short of 1000, which is 999 in the level of Yesod. And the young lad will be a mighty nation? The young lad refers to Ephraim, a hint at Moshiach ben Yosef. When Moshiach ben Yosef will get us to the level that we are a mighty nation, this will have occurred.

What is a mighty nation? In Egypt, we are described with this same word for mighty, and there we had 600,000 Jews. So once 600,000 Jews reach Israel, this will have been fulfilled.

We remember well Rebbe, a man of great wisdom, spreading the word that the Jews have completed all the requirements for Moshiach to come, and the Redeemer didn't. It means that he was wrong. Rebbe did send emissaries all over the world to look for Moshiach, and nothing truly happened in that direction.
As the entire world will burn in fire to be cleansed, so is Yisrael. If this isn't true, then you tell me who will remove Erev Rav from our midst? Who will remove the transgressors from within Yisrael? Is Ezekiel wrong when prophesying about the suffering of the nation at the End of Days?
As for the American Jews most of them have forgotten they are Jewish, and what means to be Jewish. However, their destiny will be different, their America won't survive, but Yisrael will.
The atmosphere of events today among Jews resemble that before the destruction of the Second Temple. At that time the suffering was long, the 70 years. But now the suffering will be short, for those sinful people will be removed, only those found in the Book of life remain. This is the End of Days, then we come to the conclusion of the entire project of Hashem concerning his people being given a mission to fulfill. In the end only the remnant of Yisrael will succeed.

Davidtre: I received your Comment about the "actual location of the 1st and 2nd Temples". I want to investigate this. I can't post this link because of a number of Xtian sources quoted at the end of the explanation on the website to which your comment is linked. According to your linked website, the actual location of both Temples was on an east/ west line over the area where the Al Aksa Mosque is found today, not the Dome of the Rock. The link does show the walking bridge from the southern courts of the Temple Mount to the Mt. of Olives. So at the very least that link does not conflict with the Mishnayot in Parah. It of course DOES conflict with our "collective memory" of where the Temples stood. I will do some checking into this including contacting Rav Chaim Richman and others about what they think about all this. I am 100% sure he will rebut all this because he is constantly challenged by these types of claims or bombarded with challenges over things like this. It always helps to get the the opinion of Rabbinic experts on matters dealing with their expertise. The problem with most of those who theorize that they know better, how many of them have contacted people like Rav Richman to explain to them where they may have erred? If you bring up an unconventional theory, let the Rabbanim explain where you may have erred.

Daniel! You may want to quit while you're ahead!

I would have kept from replying if you had only been speaking to me. But for a second time you have slandered/libeled the entire Nation of Israel, the good along with the bad. "...the way it is now Yisrael doesn't merit rachamim. Only the remnant of Yisrael will be able to see the mercy of Hashem." you write. Need I point out that we are already a remnant of what we should have been by now?

It is recorded in Yeshayahu haNavi's sefer, 6:5 that he said (probably more to himself than to anyone else; but it doesn't say, and what do I know, anyway...): ...and amidst a people of unclean lips I dwell...
וּבְתוֹךְ֙ עַם־טְמֵ֣א שְׂפָתַ֔יִם אָנֹכִ֖י יֹשֵׁ֑ב...

and for this he got a glowing coal on his mouth in pasuk vav (verse 6). Rashi says there:

a glowing coal: Heb. רִצְפָּה, a coal, and similarly, (I Kings 19:6) “a cake baked on hot coals (עֻגַּתרְצָפִים),” like עֻגַּתרְשָׁפִים. In regards to Isaiah and Elijah, however, it is written with a ‘zadi,’ רִצְפָּה, because they spoke ill of Israel. This one [Isaiah] called them a people of unclean lips, and this one [Elijah] said, (ibid. 10) “For… have forsaken Your covenant.” Said the Holy One, blessed be He, to the angel, “Break the mouth (רְצוֹץפֶּה) that spoke ill of My children.”

I was going to continue on and include Eliyahu, but the great teacher Rashi did it for me. Well, not really for me; but anyway he has saved me research and words.

If these, among the great prophets, could suffer consequences for slandering Israel, how dare any of us? And typing on the Internet could very well be considered libel because it's writing, after all, and forbidden on Shabbat. How much worse, then, is this?

Only HQB"H knows how many righteous and how many wicked there are among us; also how many suffer from being forced to deal with people who behave like, and seek the goals of, those who oppose and hate haShem and His people.

See here.

This is also a warning for others who would likewise take swipes and swings at Am Yisrael during this most tempestuous time before the end. HaMevin yavin.

Jonathan: between this week and three years from now. At least that would have been my answer last week, but now that MbS of the House of Saud has called Khamenei Hitler, all bets are off. Calling the leader of a country that you hate, Hitler, dramatically accelerates the drumbeat towards war. If you think that the leader of Iran is another Hitler, you won't sit on your laurels waiting for him to polish up his nuclear and missile program.

Plus there is another reason. It has now been almost precisely 2300 years since Ptolemy II Philadelphus translated the Torah into the Greek language when darkness fell on the world because the Majestic Torah was placed into the Library in Alexandria alongside other great works of "literature". The Torah is not just literature. It is the blueprint for the Creation of the World. So Darkness fell on to the world when it was translated into Greek at the very beginning of Ptolemy II's reign while he was co-regent with his illustrious father Ptolemy I Soter between 285bce and 283 bce. A man named Demetrius of Phalerum was most engaged in the translation. A historian named Aristobulus noted that less than one century later. When the elder Ptolemy I died, Demetrius fell out of favor with his son Ptolemy Philadelphus who had been co-regent for three years because Demetrius preferred another son to take the throne. So Ptolemy II had him exiled. This pinpoints the translation into Greek to have taken place between 285 and 283 bce, when Ptolemy II was co-regent with his father since in 283 the man most engaged with the translation, Demetrius, was exiled. This year the winter of 2017 is precisely 2300 years later. So why is this significant? only because there is a verse in Sefer Daniel chapter 8 about darkness falling onto the world during the Greek exile for 2300 years!:

From Sefer Daniel chapter 8:

ח וּצְפִיר הָעִזִּים, הִגְדִּיל עַד-מְאֹד; וּכְעָצְמוֹ, נִשְׁבְּרָה הַקֶּרֶן הַגְּדֹלָה, וַתַּעֲלֶנָה חָזוּת אַרְבַּע תַּחְתֶּיהָ, לְאַרְבַּע רוּחוֹת הַשָּׁמָיִם. 8 And the he-goat (Greece) magnified himself exceedingly; and when he (Alexander the Great) was strong, the great horn was broken; and instead of it there came up the appearance of four horns (the four Greek kings who replaced Alexander when he died including Ptolemy) toward the four winds of heaven. (Greek Empire was exceedingly large.)
ט וּמִן-הָאַחַת מֵהֶם, יָצָא קֶרֶן-אַחַת מִצְּעִירָה; וַתִּגְדַּל-יֶתֶר אֶל-הַנֶּגֶב וְאֶל-הַמִּזְרָח, וְאֶל-הַצֶּבִי. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn (Ptolemy I Soter), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the beauteous land (Israel to the north of Egypt where Ptolemy ruled).
י וַתִּגְדַּל, עַד-צְבָא הַשָּׁמָיִם; וַתַּפֵּל אַרְצָה מִן-הַצָּבָא וּמִן-הַכּוֹכָבִים, וַתִּרְמְסֵם. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and some of the host and of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled upon them. (Darkness fell onto the world.)
יא וְעַד שַׂר-הַצָּבָא, הִגְדִּיל; וּמִמֶּנּוּ הרים (הוּרַם) הַתָּמִיד, וְהֻשְׁלַךְ מְכוֹן מִקְדָּשׁוֹ. 11 Yea, it magnified itself, even to the prince of the host; and from him the continual burnt-offering was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. (This was later when the Selucids from Syria took over Israel from Ptolemy.)
יב וְצָבָא תִּנָּתֵן עַל-הַתָּמִיד, בְּפָשַׁע; וְתַשְׁלֵךְ אֱמֶת אַרְצָה, וְעָשְׂתָה וְהִצְלִיחָה. 12 And the host was given over to it together with the continual burnt-offering through transgression; and it cast down truth to the ground, and it wrought, and prospered.
יג וָאֶשְׁמְעָה אֶחָד-קָדוֹשׁ, מְדַבֵּר; וַיֹּאמֶר אֶחָד קָדוֹשׁ לַפַּלְמוֹנִי הַמְדַבֵּר, עַד-מָתַי הֶחָזוֹן הַתָּמִיד וְהַפֶּשַׁע שֹׁמֵם--תֵּת וְקֹדֶשׁ וְצָבָא, מִרְמָס. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said unto that certain one who spoke: 'How long shall be the vision concerning the continual burnt-offering, and the transgression that causes appalment, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled under foot?'
יד וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלַי--עַד עֶרֶב בֹּקֶר, אַלְפַּיִם וּשְׁלֹשׁ מֵאוֹת; וְנִצְדַּק, קֹדֶשׁ. 14 And he said unto me: 'Unto two thousand and three hundred (years) to go from evening (Darkness) until Morning (Light); then shall the sanctuary be victorious.'

This year by the 8th of Tevet 5778, the 2300 years of darkness are complete....

An advice for Dani: What you do is NOT musar to improve your fellow Jews. Be careful when bringing judgment upon Am Israel because Hashem may start with you. Hashem didn't forgive the holy and righteous prophets when they did it, what makes you think you will be an exception?

Dov, what you are showing is fascinating. That number 2300 is very important in Sefer Daniel. It could be an allusion to that day of darkness when the Torah was translated into Greek. It makes perfect sense.

Well, now that ISIS has attacked a Sunni Mosq. and killed Sunni worshippers, this is another excelleration of our end-days-scenario. This means IRAN-backed-ISIS-and-other-Sunni terrorists who have aligned with and are being financed by IRAN (yes according to R’ Kessin or Mizrachi) is irritating the Saudis to no end. It also means that IRAN is itching to get a strong hold on Gaza (and Egypt), so-to-speak, to surround Israel and Saudi Arabia (the bnei-Yaakov and Yishmaelites). If one looks at the map, one can see the Iranian tentacles dominating the ME. It’s only a matter of time until “that war” could begin. Now that Hariri is back in Lebanon it might make it easier, as he follows/allows the Iranian (forgot his name) plant to have greater influence. Don’t know how much of an influence SA now will have in Lebanon?

Ginno: The 2300 year factor comes into play either this Kislev/ Chanukah/ 8th of Tevet or next years, but more likely this Gregorian year 2017.

Demetrius served both Ptolemy I Soter and Ptolemy II Philadelphus between 285 bce and 283 bce. Some say that Ptolemy I died in the late Fall of 283 bce while some say he died in the Spring of 282 bce. When the father died, Philadelphus exiled Demetrius of Phalerum from his Alexandria court because Demetrius foolishly supported his brother Keraunos to be king. This was even the more foolish because Philadephus had already been the ruling monarch replacing his aging father for three years already..... kind of like Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia! Demetrius, who was one of the greatest orators and poets of ancient Greece, proved to be a horrible player in politics. He had previously been Mayor of Athens, and he had alienated the city's poorer folk so badly that when he was thrown out as Mayor, whatever distinctions had been conferred upon him as Mayor, the newly elected Mayor revoked! So he proved not to be as talented a politician as he was an orator. So it makes sense that later on he would "bet on the wrong horse", be summarily exiled by Philadelphus, and end up dead of snake bite poisoning three years later in 280 bce. So why is this important? because we are told by Chaza"l and other sources that the Torah was translated into Greek during the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus while historians tell us that it is Demetrius who not only built the Library in Alexandria because he was a Man of Letters himself but also brought in the 72 sages from Judea to translate the Torah into Ancient Greek. So the overlap for this to happen was only three years! (285 bce, 284 bce and possibly but not likely 283 bce because of the opinion that Ptolemy I Soter died in the late Fall of that year). The 285 bce is not likely because Philadelphus was likely just entering his reign as co-regent. So 284 bce (or January 283 bce) is the most likely year of the translation in Tevet which usually comes at the very end of a solar year or at the beginning of the next year which would have been in January of 283 bce. So do the Math: 2017 + 284 -1 = 2300 years! We subtract one when adding bce years to ce years because there was no year 0. Therefore the year 0 has to be subtracted out of any calculation which calculates the number of years that have passed.

IF this is what is happening, and keep in mind I am not "predicting" anything, it should start during Chanukah with the appearance of the Or Ganuz. The spiritual universe should shine with the light of one sextillian suns (10 to the 21st power suns) since that is the mass of the number of stars that are in the Heavens and since the Or Ganuz is the Light from the first day of Creation which was the blackbody heat and light of all the matter in the created universe immediately following the decoupling between matter and light almost immediately following the Big Bang. That brilliant light has since cooled to 2.7 degrees Kelvin and is therefore not visible to the naked eye. Yet, IF this is the Chanukah?,....

Actually Resh Lakish said in the Gemara there are 10 to the 19 power stars in the universe, although it could be that many more stars were created in the last 1,700 years (while many others were extinguished). I don't know about astronomy. Maybe that is the powerful light that will burn the wicked and heal the righteous, as king David said.

Response to Ginno Ricci

First remember what H' promised Avraham Avinu, that because of the devotion he displayed in being prepared to offer his beloved son as a sacrifice he would be blessed with an "exceeding multiplication of his seed like the stars of the heaven and the sand upon the seashore." (Bereishis 22:16-17)

From a astronomy and science in general perspective we have

Astronomer David Kornreich used a very rough estimate of 10 trillion galaxies in the universe. Multiplying that by the Milky Way's estimated 100 billion stars results in a large number indeed: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars, or a "1" with 24 zeros after it.

They said, if you assume a grain of sand has an average size and you calculate how many grains are in a teaspoon and then multiply by all the beaches and deserts in the world, the Earth has roughly (and we're speaking very roughly here) 7.5 x 1018 grains of sand, or seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion grains.

Response 2 to Ginno Ricci about Resh Lakish and numbers of star

The Torah states (Yeremiah 33:22): "As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured; so will I multiply the seed of David My servant, and the Levites that minister unto Me." Here the "host of heaven" refers to the stars and all stellar objects, meaning that the stars, as the sand, cannot be numbered

In one passage of the Talmud Brachos 32a, Reish Lakish made a statement about the number of stars in the Universe, at a time when the naked eye could only see hundreds of them: Keneses Yisrael says to Hash-m "when a man takes a second wife, he remembers the deeds of his first wife (even though he somewhat abandons her). You abandoned and forgot me!"

Hash-m: I created 12 constellations. There are 30 generals for each. There are 30 lieutenants for each general. There are 30 captains for each lieutenant. There are 30 sergeants for each captain. There are 30 officers for each sergeant. For each officer there are 365 times 10 million stars, corresponding to the number of days in a solar year;

In the time of Galileo, when mankind invented the telescope, astronomers could then assess a number of stars of the magnitude of several thousands. But, it was not until the early 20th century, when mankind invented the photographic film, which could record a portion of the sky with long exposure of weak light sources (such as very remote stars) that the understanding of the number of stars grew to a much much larger number, typically assumed to be in the range of 1 followed by 20 zeros or more.


Another example of this knowledge is reflected in the comment made by Samuel, an Amora born in Nehardea about 165 CE, who was also an astronomer, which was recorded in the Talmud. The discussion was about the understanding of Job 9:9: "Who makes the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades (Hebrew word כִימָה, pronounced Kimah) and the Chambers of the South."

What is meant by Kimah [Pleiades, כִימָה ] Samuel said: About a hundred [ke'me-ah כִי מאה] stars.
--- Talmud, Berachot, 58b

This comment is astonishing because the Pleiades is a cluster of stars which was believed, since the ancient times, to be composed of a handful of stars which could be seen by the naked eye. The Pleiades were then nicknamed the Six Sisters. And since the end of the 18th century, the astronomers, with the help of their telescopes, estimated that the Pleiades contained 64 objects.

Included in all this mess is the complete disintegration of the Litwak Chareidi Welt. I don't want to get into the particulars in regards to the rioting and obscene behaviors going on at the Yerushalayim light rail over registering one's exemption from the Draft, but I want to take note that as we entered the post-Acharonic Era with the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe zt"l and Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zt"l in 5754 and 5755 respectively and later on with the passing of Rav Ovadia Yosef zt"l in the Sephardic World, it is specifically the Litwak world that has taken the biggest spiritual hit from the collapse of the Acharonic Era into the post-Acharonic Era. The Chassidic Welt has had this blow softened by the fact that every Chassid still had his Rebbe or his previous Rebbe and unlike the Litwak World, Chassidim have their nefeshot behamiyot (animal souls) intact. The decree in 1666 (5426) for Eastern European Ashkenazim to bury their pain by trampling on their animal souls when Shabtai Tzvi converted to Islam ceased to apply to them (the Chassidim) when the Ba'al Shem Tov annulled that evil decree and instead found a salve in Chassidut for the critically wounded animal souls of the Chassidim who followed him. So now we see the final result of 350 years of Litwak's burying their pain ostensibly to avoid intensely anticipating false Messiahs and maybe even the real one. They can't feel their own pain nor the pain of the other Jews whose lives are being more than inconvenienced by their obnoxious behavior. And is it not ironic that the very son of the last Litwak Acharon is the one leading his flock into the spiritual abyss? His illustrious father is turning over in his grave. This is cringeworthy, the behavior of Rav Shlomo Zalman's son. I won't go any further than that on this subject until even worse crimes are done with his blessing (which is a curse).

There are various groups within the Chareidi World, most of them more virtuous than what Shmuel Auerbach is doing. In the case of Auerbach, he does not even want to give sanction to the P'tor that the Chareidim are receiving from serving in the military because they are all, ostensibly, engaged in full time Torah Study. All the ones getting the P'tor have to do is to show up at the Misrad HaGiyus (the Ole' Draft Board) and get their exemption on an individual basis, and then they are exempt. Auerbach is instructing his following to not even show up to get this P'tor because by doing so they are recognizing the authority of the State. If the Ottoman Turks were still in control here, I am sure that the students of Auerbach would have to jump through a bunch of other hoops to show kavod to their Muslim overlords. What the State of Israel is expecting is minimal compared to what a gentile Malkhut would expect. His elderly 104 year old competitor for the minds of the Litwak World, Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib Steinman, has no problem with this minimal amount of effort to get this P'tor for his talmidim. But the Litwak Chareidi World is in turmoil over this and is fighting this battle against itself as much as it is fighting this battle against Israel at large. Of course there are other solutions. We have discussed these solutions before on this blog. Sherut Leumi for Chareidim where they go into secular schools and teach the kids Qri'at Shma and basic Judaism 101. That would be a great sherut leumi program for many Chareidim along with an large number of other venues for doing Sherut Le'umi.

Mathematics, One hard Science, and One foreign language spoken by over 1 billion people on planet earth should be a requirement for every high school student who learns in Israel including the Chareidim. After this exposure, then let the Chareidi student decide his future based on some basic exposure to Math, the Secular hard sciences, and one international, widely spoken foreign language (English, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese)

The sad part is that those haredim couldn't care less about kiruv or the physical and spiritual situation of the rest of Am Israel. That shows it's not leshem shamaim.

It mentions some date in 2018 for some event so do not expect war and geulah before that I think. Sorry

As soon as blogger resumes unimpeded functioning, my next post touches on your puzzlement, Ginno, entitled, ""The Fire That Rebuilds” Rav Elchonon Wasserman”. I believe these brave brash neshomas are in a way juxtaposed to MbS, standing up for the core values of its people. It may begin as demonstrating or purging, but may develop into another hastening of the Geulah.

So when Trump decided to become Snake-Like instead of the saviour of Edom, the King and Creator of the world meted out measure for measure to him, his closests family and his nation.

President Donald Trump has just one month left to salvage a lost legislative year in a presidency that he vowed would be an endless victory lap -- but has yet to produce a major new law that reshapes the nation.

Meir, your Trump is a snake worry is legitimate i suppose. But you know what? You can change your position only so often in world politics before you become unreliable and therefore irrelevant. Moving and not moving the embassy to Jerusalem, i mean for example. Or moving an embassy away from Washington, and not doing so. Trump has already got a credibility problem in many peoples' eyes. He don't need more of that. As soon as many in Congress and the media can find something to oppose him big time, they will. And HaShem can make them do it, if needed. Choosing the working relation with the erev rav state status quo situation over any grazy Trump adventure, good or bad, is preferable to most people. The anti Trump kneejerk reaction will work it's way, if needed, don't worry. I believe this is what (R)NBA means when he says Trump could be out if he touches Israel. The whole equation will turn inside out. The whole Russia probe, it is all connected. Is Russia Gog, are they in check? Or is Russia more of a working partner? Or are they on the loose? And how does Congress feel about all that, and all the pro Israel stances they took over the years? Some of which might have been grand standing by phonies, but still. Russia is a competitor anyway. Or is USA gonna sent all the Jews out, and not sent weapons to fight Iran and Russia than? But who would do that, and why? And even if so. Israel will win that also anyway. But this whole process would take time also, time MdS might not have. You see? Just a modest analysis by a chessplayer, that's all.

They are standing against the Tarmodite occupation. Of course they could go get their exemption signed, but it's more than that. They are making a point. It may not be the best way to make it, and it comes at a cost of sensitivity to the general population, but I can't denounce them so quickly.

If we compare a mostly secular IDF led by a Tarmodite government, versus a holy congregation with far less military sophistication, but willing to fight and die for Hashem, which camp do you think Hashem will favor?

Thanks for the info, Neshama. I hope that conspiracy is not true. The idea of using the IDF to 'secularize' someone on purpose makes me sick in the stomach. I have my differences with the haredi hashkafa, but I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions so fast. Just for the record, despite its deffects, I love Israel very much, and of course I love the Torah. I see no contradiction whatsoever.

Well, Un of N. Korea just shot off a far more advanced ICBM into the Japanese waters about 20 miles west of the Island of Japan. This is progressing from being a war where 50 million people would die to a war where 2 billion will die..... rather quickly. Will Trump continue to sit on his hands as if they are there to warm his tush? By procrastinating he is making this so much worse. but this is in G-d's Hands. If He wants Trump to do nothing, Trump will continue to run after the facade that economic sanctions will stop this madness.

Re: Temple location — This is another crackpot theory originated by Bob Cornuke and has been debunked numerous times. He ignores many mishnayot explaining the layout and architecture around and under the structures. This is not surprising, because his entire ratzon in creating this theory is to allow Yashke’s prediction of “one stone not on another” to be true.

As we said earlier here on this blog - Trump will be another version of Obama. Now Russia agrees with us.

רוסיה: המדיניות האמריקנית תחת טראמפ נותרה דומה לשל אובמה

שר החוץ של רוסיה סרגיי לברוב אמר כי צעדיו של הנשיא האמריקני דונלד טראמפ דומים לאלו של קודמו בתפקיד ברק אובמה. "לצערנו, פעולות רבות של ממשל טראמפ דומים הלכה למעשה לאלו של ברק אובמה", אמר השר בריאיון לעיתון האיטלקי "ליברו".2017-11-30

The Snake-Like Trump again!

Israel’s Channel 2 said on Wednesday that Trump would soon announce the move, possibly as soon as Sunday. According to the report, he was also planning to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which the US has never done for fear of agitating the Palestinians, who want the city as their own capital.......

A report that President Donald Trump would announce preparations to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem within days was “premature”, the White House said on Wednesday.

“This is a premature report. We have nothing to announce,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, AFP reported.

What is for sure is that even if he, against all odds, will move the embassy it WON'T be to East Yerushalayim! But let us all hope he will repent, make teshuva and do what H' expected from him when H' elected him to become president.

Hello everybody ! Things are accelerating in a crazy way, gueoula is very near.

Meir, with much respect to you, I don't understand your point that Trump should be the Snake.
I agree he has the power of the snake (or Esav, I would rather say), and maybe it's manners (rude, snaky sometimes...) but not that he is deliberately working against Israel.

On the very contrary -and I believe you too study Rav Mendel Kessin's lessons who says so, I believe that Trump is trying to fulfill his holy mission which is to support and help Israel (like Koresh / Mashiah ben Yossef in his time).

Maybe not exactly in the way we would expect (I mean about the Embassy, or Iran, and so on...we are disappointed), but how can we deny he is really trying, now less than one year after the disastrous Obama/Kerry work and, maybe worse, Hillary's fail to become POTUS ?

Please take note that I am not much involved in politics / supporter of Trump, in fact I live in France where Trump is not much appreciated.

But we have to be fair : the guy is really trying to support Israel, just see how USA are now acting with soo called palestinians representatives, or Nikky Haley at the UN, or trying to cut the taxes that go to the West Bank ...

And yes, Trump makes a lot of mistakes, he is pretty frightening sometimes, but it's a mystery to me that you can state he is the snake, who is an enemy of Israel with no doubts...

Please explain me that point
