We're Like Living in a Movie

10 Adar 5775

We're not going to know the real story til the very end... 

For example, not everything the West says is true and not everything the East says is a lie.

Why Iran Believes ISIS is a U.S. Creation

And since when does Netanyahu get the backbone to stand up to everyone calling for him to stand down from his speech to Congress this week. If Netanyahu is full-steam ahead to go, you can bet on the fact that the opposition is all an act and that he is actually under orders of his handlers to appear.

(Google "Netanyahu has no backbone" and see how many references you get.)

So, if the US has created ISIS in opposition to Iran and at the same time is supposedly giving them permission to pursue their nuclear ambitions, which part of this is an act and to what end?

In the case of Netanyahu's speech to Congress, what does he hope to gain? Supposedly, backing for a war against Iran? And if, after the fire that has been smouldering these past weeks over his "insistence" on giving the speech despite calls to desist, he gets what he purportedly wants? How might it all go wrong and what kind of backlash will explode and burn out of control against the Jews in the US and across the world as a result?

Then Netanyahu can stand up and give the same speech to American Jews that he gave to the French Jews...

Erev Shabbat Kodesh

Look at what we are up against!

We are to acknowledge and seek after the blessing God promises to those 
who will bless Israel, and to refuse to silence the life-changing
 Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.

Rabbi Riskin announces historic curriculum for Israeli schools during visit to Oklahoma

...the organization is working with the government of Israel to develop a pilot program within the high school system to have Israeli Jewish students understand the Catholic Church’s “theological turnaround toward the Synagogue: and what has been done in the half century of positive developments between both faith communities.

...The rabbi, whom Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has designated “Ambassador for Jewish-Christian Relations,” called on “our Muslim brethren, children of our common father, Abraham,” to speak out against Islamic extremism....

Learning To Embrace the Hybrid Jew
You Don't Always Have to Pick Judaism Over Another Religion

DO NOT BUY INTO THIS LIE that it is time to come together and unite with the nations and find common ground with their false religions!! 

Parshat Balak Bamidbar 23:9...
ובגוים לא יתחשב-And not be reckoned among the nations. When the final reckoning is made to punish the nations, Israel will not be included among them (Rashi). Midrash HaGadol interprets this as a reference to Israel's mission to remain separate and distinct from the nations. From this blessing that Balaam delivered against his will, we see what he had hoped to achieve (see Sanhedrin 105a): that Jews assimilate with the nations and be left with neither religion nor renown.

Rabbi Aharon Kotler, in the name of the Chaftez Chaim, Leket Reshimot Channukah by Rabbi Noson Wachtfogel, p. 41:
"I have a tradition passed down from one to another in the name of Maran HaGaon Rabbi Yehoshua Leib Diskin, z"l, that in the final war before the arrival of the Mashiach all of the righteous Jews will be saved. Who are the 'righteous Jews'? Those who are separated from the non-Jews! It does not mean that they must be one of the 36 righteous individuals, rather they must be separated from the ways of the non-Jews and have no contact with their culture! Not with their newspapers, their music and books; to be entirely separated from them. Then Hashem will say: You are Mine and you are under a different authority so no one else will rule over you

Rabbi Kahane z"l, Or HaRa'ayon...
"The argument of the nations here is that we must achieve unity and break down the walls of separation. Is this not fair and logical according the the false thinking of the worshippers of foriegn culture? Is not the unity of all nations and the disappearance of the differences between Israel and the nations the goal of the Hellenists...."
"G-d decreed upon holy Israel that they must be separated from impurity and from the impure nations. The idolatry and foreign culture of the nations cannot coexist with G-d's Torah or with G-d himself."
And from the latest message from Daniel which was posted yesterday and which I have not had time to fully translate...

"...right now, Abba, we need to separate ourselves from the goyim and from the goyishness, from the immorality and from all the things that HKB"H hates...."

In Memory of Moshe Rabbeinu

7 Adar 5775

"Parashat Tetsaveh is the only parashah since Moshe's birth that does not mention his name explicitly. Every mitsvah and command mentioned in the parashah, however, is initiated with the word "you," referring to Moshe. Apparently, Moshe is the prime focus of this parashah, although his name is not recorded. Why? The Sages tell us that the curse of a tsadik, even if it is contingent upon specific conditions, takes effect despite the fact that those conditions are not met. When Moshe entreated Hashem on behalf of Klal Yisrael after they sinned with the Golden Calf, he said to Hashem, "If you do not forgive their sin, I beg You, erase my name from Your Book," a reference to the Torah. We may question why, of all the parashiot, Tetsaveh is chosen to be the one from which Moshe's name is excluded?

The commentators offer various answers to this question. Some say that since Moshe's yahrzeit is on the seventh day of Adar, which always falls out during the week of Tetsaveh, it is logical that this is the parashah from which Moshe's name is missing. This answer is enigmatic. One would think that specifically during the week in which Moshe passed away, his name would be remembered as much as possible. After all, what greater tribute is there to our great leader than remembering him on his yahrzeit?

Rav Elchanan Sorotzkin feels that the Torah's omission of Moshe's name specifically in Parashat Tetsaveh, during his yahrzeit, speaks volumes about Moshe's greatness as a leader and as a Jew. Moshe was prepared to sacrifice more than just his physical life for the Jewish people; he was prepared to relinquish his spiritual life, his neshamah, for them. The Torah is called Torat Moshe, the Torah of Moshe. For what greater appreciation can one hope? Our Torah is immutable; it will always remain Torat Moshe. Yet, Moshe was ready to relinquish the ultimate spiritual pleasure, his name engraved for all eternity in the Torah. Moshe's love for his people was so overwhelming that he gave Hashem his incredible "ultimatum" despite the consequences. Is there any greater tribute to the father of all prophets, the quintessential leader of Klal Yisrael, than to leave his name out of the parashah that falls on his yahrzeit? In this manner, everyone will acknowledge the greatness of his deed. "

Countdown to Purim 5775

5 Adar 5775

Re-capping from the messages...

Moishela (Elul 5774): "Then we will come to Purim and we will beg Hashem to save us from Haman and we will have a Haman here, a Haman that we will have to be saved from and we will have to fight, fight our fears, beg Hashem to save us from this awful terrible horrific person and his armies and his police. We will have to beg very hard. Hashem will save us."

Menachem (Elul 5774): "...we will arrive to Purim, and on Purim, this is the time of Haman's fall. Then, the wicked one who was placed over us, he will also go away. He will go away - and not bother us any more."

Binyamin (Shevat 5775): "It will be Purim and I think that we will feel the purim very strongly. Hear our words - and don't ask questions... when it will arrive, you'll see. We will feel it very strongly, the purim."

If you look at Yeranen Yaakov's blog here and here, it's clear that Iran - the Persia of our times - who still wants to carry out the edict to "destroy, slay, and exterminate all the Jews, young and old, women and children in one day...." is very much in today's news. 

And it certainly is no coincidence that the much debated speech by the Israeli Prime Minister before the US Congress on the subject of Iran's acquisition of nuclear weaponry is scheduled for the day prior to Ta'anit Esther.

The geulah-process is in full furl. Keep your eyes peeled - "when it will arrive, you'll see."


Amalek is alive and well and living in Iran

Excerpts from Binyamin Golden's Tu B'Shevat Message

5 Adar 5775

Message from Binyamin
15 Shevat 5775, in Jerusalem

On Elections

Q. It seems to me that since they want to take over here in Israel, it's easier for them to work via the Left, to buy and to operate them, so therefore, they are fighting now against the Right.

A. No! Completely not true. It's like in America. They have the Democrats and the Republicans. The Republicans are like 'against' Obama, against what he's doing. This way they're like 'protesters,' but in action, they're passing all his laws and if they would not vote for it - it would not pass! So, there's really not two parties, there's just one party: that of the evildoers. They're the rulers - and that's it. There are Democrats like this and there are Republicans like this. And that's exactly what we have here now. All of the seculars are involved in it and also part of the hareidim. And that's the problem. The whole matter of elections - it's a joke.

Q. So, what do you recommend to people, to not participate in the elections?!...

A. What a question. Whoever votes is voting that they are pleased with this system, with this structure which is not at all Jewish, simply not Jewish.

On Purim

Q. ...what will be here in another month?

A. I don't know what will be in a month, except that it will be worse. It will be Purim and I think that we will feel the purim very strongly. Hear our words - and don't ask questions... when it will arrive, you'll see. We will feel it very strongly, the purim.

Q. What? The rescue of Purim or the decree of the purim?

A. You're asking questions... I said what I had to say.

"The Zionist Camp"

4 Adar 5775

When the Labor-Hatnua alliance began calling themselves "The Zionist Camp," I thought how ironic that those who least represented "Zionist" ideals should call themselves "The Zionist Camp." But, then I got to thinking about it more and came to the conclusion that really they are aptly named because this is where Zionism without Torah naturally ends up.

I came across an opinion piece that I wrote in 2005. It gives me more food for thought today...

On Fighting the Erev Rav

How do we "fight" the Erev Rav? It is a war for hearts and minds. The battle involves waking up sleeping (uninformed) Jews and convincing them that there is even a war to be waged and to educate them as to who the enemy is and how he can be defeated.

The Erev Rav are klipot. They are parasitic and get their nourishment from the side of holiness. It is critical to be able to recognize when the time for the redemption has arrived (and who are the Erev Rav) as that is the time to separate completely from them so that they lose their source of power.

Now that we are immovably fixed on the course of geulah b'ita, there is now no longer any more we can do by our own efforts (i.e., politics). All that is left to us now is to separate completely from the klipot, do teshuva and strengthen ourselves in emuna, Torah and mitzvot and await (cry out for) our deliverance.

The State of Israel was surely the beginning of our redemption, just as the implantation of the embryo and formation of the life-giving, nourishing placenta is the beginning of human life. But when the birth arrives, that structure is no longer necessary and must be ripped away, else it threatens the life of the one it was created to nourish. Its usefulness is at an end. It must be discarded.

Practically speaking, we need to speak constantly of Mashiach and the geulah and to teach others particularly the subject matter of Kol HaTor...about the Erev Rav and how to help Mashiach ben Yosef to complete his mission.

The task of the hour, as I see it, is to convince good Jews to abandon the political process at this point. It goes against all our thinking up until now, that we have to work in conjunction with it.

While a fetus is developing, everything must be done to maintain the pregnancy, but when the time for birth arrives, the one who does not recognize the changed reality and who continues to try and maintain the pregnancy now delays the birth and threatens the life of the emerging infant.

It is the birth assistant who knows how to recognize the signs of impending birth and who is qualified to instruct others on how best to assist the process. These are our sages and mekubalim.

Learn the Holy GR"A's signs for recognizing the Erev Rav and start trying to convince everyone you know to abandon the political realm. Very many I'm afraid will not be able to make this leap of faith, but will continue to insist that we must remain a part of it in order to influence it. This is the worst thing we can do.

All the suffering that was endured during and surrounding the expulsion from Gaza was meant only to teach this lesson...that there is now no longer any way to influence, we must withdraw and let it collapse. But I fear that too many do not understand how to interpret the events of our time in light of the teachings of our sages on the geulah.


That was ten years ago. So, was I right or was I wrong?

"The First of Its Kind in the World"

3 Adar 5775
"The internationally unique House of Religions opened its doors on Sunday, where eight religious communities are going to live together under one roof. It is the first of its kind in this world, but hopefully not the last. This is the type of religious tolerance the world needs right now.
Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists now call thischurch home and the faiths celebrated on Sunday with thousands of visitors moving into a newly built glass building in the Europe Square in the west of Bern, Switzerland."

How long until they try this on Har Habayit - after all the Bible says the Temple will be a "House of Prayer for All Nations," right?

"We're Already in the End of Days"

30 Shevat 5775
Rosh Chodesh Adar

Very worthwhile to hear...

"...Soon we're gonna hear the shofar. ...Maybe before we realize, in a week or two or three, things will begin to happen...."

Treasure for a Treasured People

29 Shevat 5775
Yom Kippur Katan
Erev Rosh Chodesh Adar

"...For they will be nourished by the abundance of the seas, and by the treasures hidden in the sand." (Devarim 33.19)

'Priceless' trove of 2,000 gold coins used by 10th Century Caliphate which once ruled much of the Middle East is found off the coast of Israel

  • Largest haul ever found off Israel's Mediterranean coast
  • Divers found coins dating back more 1,000 years by pure chance
  • Thought they were toy coins before experts confirmed they were gold
  • Work ongoing to trace origins of the treasure, uncovered by storm

Interesting how Hashem saw fit to turn this treasure, purportedly belonging to a Caliphate from 1000 years ago, over to Israel at a time when another Caliphate-in-the-making is in the daily news. It's a message to the world that the days of the Caliphate is definitely over and it's a 'deposit' on what is coming to Israel in the days ahead.

"...for the abundance of the west shall be turned over to you, the wealth of the nations that will come to you." (Yeshayahu 60.5)

Separation at the 'End of Days'

23 Shevat 5775

It is noteworthy that here at the end, just before redemption arrives, one of the biggest tests facing the Jews is whether to unite with goyim or separate from them. Please understand that the following quotes are not my words, but the words of Torah scholars. They are taken from the footnotes of the book The End of Days, Vol 1 by Shmuel Raber. [Note the emphasized text is bolded in the original.]
"...During the First World War many came to the Chafetz Chaim and asked him if this is the 'End of Days' and the war of Gog and Magog. The Chaftez Chaim answered: 'After this war there will be a pause and then there will be another war and then another pause. Then there will be another war and with that war the Mashiach will come...the last war will be the beginning of the redemption, and a Torah-true Jew who is completely separated from the non-Jews will not be subjugated, as we find that in Egypt when two people drank from the same cup, one (an Egyptian) drank blood and the other (an Israelite) drank water. This shows that in fact there is no rule whatsoever over a Jew who is separated entirely from the non-Jews" (Rabbi Aharon Kotler, in the name of the Chaftez Chaim, Leket Reshimot Channukah by Rabbi Noson Wachtfogel, p. 40).

"I have a tradition passed down from one to another in the name of Maran HaGaon Rabbi Yehoshua Leib Diskin, z"l, that in the final war before the arrival of the Mashiach all of the righteous Jews will be saved. Who are the 'righteous Jews'? Those who are separated from the non-Jews! It does not mean that they must be one of the 36 righteous individuals, rather they must be separated from the ways of the non-Jews and have no contact with their culture! Not with their newspapers, their music and books; to be entirely separated from them. Then Hashem will say: You are Mine and you are under a different authority so no one else will rule over you" (Ibid., p. 41).

Moishela: "Why Are We Living?"

22 Shevat 5775

[Posting this much after it was given because I did not receive it by email. I just found it on the Dani site.]

Discussion with Moishela (with his family)
A Handicapped child 5775 #3
20 Kislev 5775 (Dec 11, '14)

Why Are We Living

Time is moving on and we are definitely getting very close to the Geula Shelaima. I think every true Jew, whether he is close to Hashem or a bit farther away, feels now is the time that the world is going to change completely. The Frum, the believing Jew will feel a kind of closeness to Hashem that he never felt before, even though every morning when he gets up he can feel a strange and frightening foreboding of what’s going to be in the future.

The Jew that is not so close to Hashem will also feel the fear and he will start thinking what this life is about. What do I have? What are my goals? What does it matter if I go to a football game or not? What does it matter if I get the job exactly that I want or get into the right university just right for me? What does it matter? What really matters in this life? All the entertainment? All the social life? What is life all about? Why are we living? Is it just one big accident, Chas Vesholom, an accident that brought us into life against our will to suffer, Chas Vesholom? The fear of what’s coming in the near future together with the suffering that we are already going through, are bringing some people, some Jews to question, at least to stop for a moment from their partying to ask what is this about, why is this happening.

These questions are not usually asked here in Eretz Yisroel because we are used here in Eretz Yisroel to go through many crisis and then the crisis disappears and we continue going on. Of course a certain amount of people are killed Shelo Naida and so on and so forth, but the ones that are left are the great majority and they can continue on with the life that they left, the life of enjoyment, of entertainment, of flying off to Europe, to Thailand, to who knows where, and enjoying themselves. As for the Frum we continue with our grand Bar Mitzvas and weddings and our own type of social entertainment. We continue with our restaurants, of course the most kosher, and all our entertainments with the best Hechsherim, our non-Tzniusdik dress with the best Hechsherim, and so on and so forth. Now however many people feel inside that we are not going to come out of this frightening projection of future events so easily. It’s not just going to pass.

There is going to be a tremendous change in the world, a tremendous change that will in the end destroy much of the world, and therefore there are those, that are starting to feel great fear, have bad dreams, unnerving dreams and wake up very many times with a choking feeling with a fear that grabs a person and makes it difficult to breathe, a fear that makes a person want to jump up out of bed and feel alive again and this is all from the fear and the spiritual pressure of the world that is about to explode, a world that is about to change completely. This world of ours is going to disappear the way it is now, and we must change also, so that we can survive the greatest change since the creation of the world. All the dire predictions that are being made for the near future should be taken seriously if we want to be part of what’s going to be, be part of the Geula Shelaima, and a much more spiritual life. We have to become close to Hashem. We have to do Hashem’s will. We have to be Yidden the way we  are supposed to be. We must! We must do Hashem’s will completely in every aspect, to bend ourselves completely to Hashem, to His Ratzon. Otherwise we will never be able to go into the new world of Moshiach Tzidkainu.

I’ve many times spoken to you again and again on the subject, and maybe you are tired of hearing this even though I’ve tried saying it in a different way each time to make you understand better and better. I will try again anyway. I will try to make you understand that this is a great year. This year is a great and frightening year. This year is when many things will change in the greatest way. The wars have already begun. Blood is flowing freely. We are not even impressed anymore when the barbarians cut people’s heads off, but we are terribly disturbed or will be terribly disturbed when we won’t be able to get a kosher hamburger or coca cola or just plain food. We will be terribly disturbed when we see great cities falling, destroyed together with their population, Shelo Naida, all disappearing. We will be greatly disturbed, to say the least. How will we be able to overcome our feelings?! How will we be able to get through all of this?! because even if we don’t actually see this happening next to us it will be such a shock when we know so many people in those places and even if we don’t know them still it will be a shock. It will be a terrible shock. I don’t think that any generation before ours since the Creation, except for of course Sedom and Ammorah experienced such a thing, such a catastrophe, such a horrible terrible type of destruction. Even in Sedom and Ammorah it wasn’t the size of what’s going to be now. It’s dwarfed next to what’s going to be now. Don’t you understand?! There will be plenty of bloodshed here in Eretz Yisroel, Shelo Naida, but it won’t be destroyed. Those that are far from Hashem and don’t have the Zechus to come back to Hashem will be destroyed with the buildings, will be destroyed with the Edomites and the Yishmaelites and all other peoples that don’t accept Hakodosh Boruch Hu as their Creator. So what do we have to do? How can we get through all of this? We have to believe completely that whatever Hashem does is for our good, no matter what.

There is only one relationship in this world. It is the person with Hakodosh Boruch Hu. That may sound difficult for you because you have children, you have husbands, you have wives that you love very much. True, but when push comes to shove we are only the children of Hakodosh Boruch Hu, all of us, and we have been in many Gilgulim here in this world and in every Gilgul we might have had a different husband, a different wife, children not always the same, and we have had different situations that we had to overcome. We are so low and now is our chance finally to pull ourselves up and come back. When we get to the point where we greet Moshiach, Be’ezras Hashem, don’t worry. Every Neshoma will have its true, true Zivig and every child will know its true parents, and we all will know and feel and have no question about the fact that we as a people have only one Father and that is Hakodosh Boruch Hu, and our whole lives, our whole beings will be involved in only one occupation - coming closer and closer to Him. In order to come closer to Him we will eventually drop all our flesh and blood characteristics and become totally, totally spiritual and become one with Him.

Lately we have seen many tragedies. Tonight one of the Bochurim that was killed in the tragic car accident in Holland was buried. He has a very special name, Langleben, “a long life”. May he have a long life, a life of eternity, he was a Bochur that was working to be close to Hashem as was the other boy that was killed. Both trying their best to be good Jews, trying to do what Hashem wants us to do.

Why did they have to die? I can’t answer you why these particular ones had to die, but I can tell you this that the latest tragedies are a message to us that we must, must do Teshuva, and realize what we are doing wrong. When Hashem brings down so many tragedies on Am Yisroel at one time we must stop and think and take stock of our lives of what we may be doing wrong. There was a terrible incident in Crown Heights also, and lately there have been many tragedies all over the Frum Jewish world, Shelo Naidah. We must open our eyes and try to figure out where we are going wrong. It’s not a pat on the back for us. It’s a Potsh in the face for us so we will wake up. So please understand that Hashem is not happy. He wants to save His Am, but generally speaking we are going in the wrong direction. Am Yisroel, you better wake up! Stop the Machlokes. Stop the Pritzus. Stop the running after the Gashmius. Stop the gluttony and come back to what’s real. The only thing that is real is Hakodosh Boruch Hu and His Torah.

The Fake 'Unity'

22 Shevat 5775

Eisav knows about our secret weapon - "unity." But, what he doesn't understand, as well as many Jews, is that it's not a unity for unity's sake and it's not a fake unity with people we really have nothing in common with. It's the true unity of one heart and one mind that only comes about among the Children of Israel when they are gathered at Har Sinai - either actually or figuratively.

I came across an ad for a new book today - Unity: Awakening the One New Man. New book, same old story. Here is Amazon's blurb...

Unity - Awakening the One New Man reveals: Since the beginning, our Lord planned to single out the Nation of Israel. Then, after Messiah comes, to reunify Israel and the other Nations. The appointed time has arrived. This is the hour for Unity. Unity - Awakening the One New Man confirms: Yeshua's sacrifice as the Passover Lamb satisfies all of God's requirements for redemption and restoration to reunify the Kingdom of God. Yeshua has become our peace. This is God's plan for Unity. Unity - Awakening the One New Man explores: God's sovereign alliance between Jews and Gentiles will reunify believers. These 12 noteworthy authors, Messianic Jews and Christians, show us that understanding this vital connection fulfills the call to Unity.
You see what I mean? If not, go back and re-read the previous blogpost. These are the people Donny Fuchs is talking about in his article in today's Jewish Press.

Real Jews can unite with real Jews, but they can't unite with Xians no matter what name they are going by today. You will, however, see the Erev Rav and Jewish reshaim unifying with them in the common cause to destroy traditional Torah Judaism - that's why they all hate hareidim.

By the way, you'd think that after all this time, all this exposure to the truth, to Jewish thought and sources, that they would have begun to figure out by now that the "Passover Lamb" was the false god of Egypt. If you ask me, "the shoe fits."

Like one friend of mine likes to say: "If J*sus comes back a second time, we'll kill him again." 

Our big test to see who would merit to leave Egypt involved the public defilement and slaughter of the Egyptian god. Do we have what it takes to pass this test today?

The 'Randomness' of Amalek

21 Shevat 5775

It is highly appropriate that we address this issue now in the run-up to Purim.
Obama: Murdered Jews Were Just Random Victims

US Pres. Obama: “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”
This view that events happen "randomly" is deeply rooted in the philosophy of Amalek...
Remember what Amalek did to you as you were leaving Egypt. He happened upon you, and struck the weakest people trailing behind, when you were exhausted. And he did not fear God. (Deut. 25:17-18)
God said to Moses: Write this remembrance in the book... that I will surely erase the memory of Amalek from under the heavens. (Exodus 17:14)
Jacob and Esav
...The Midrash says that when Esav was getting old, he called in his grandson Amalek and said: "I tried to kill Jacob but was unable. Now I am entrusting you and your descendents with the important mission of annihilating Jacob's descendents ― the Jewish people. Carry out this deed for me. Be relentless and do not show mercy."
True to his mission, Amalek has historically tried to destroy the Jews. For example, in Exodus 17:8, Amalek attacked the Jews out of pure hatred ― Amalek lived in a distant land and was under no imminent threat.
So what does Amalek have to do with Purim? The Scroll of Esther (3:1) identifies Haman as the descendent of Agag, King of Amalek. Haman's desire to wipe out the Jewish people was an expression of his long-standing national tradition.
Random vs. Design
This conflict is much deeper than just a "sibling rivalry." Philosophically, Amalek and the Jewish people stand at two opposite ends of the spectrum.
The Talmud explains: What is the meaning of the phrase "[Amalek] happened ("karcha") upon you..." (Deut. 25:18)? The Hebrew word "karcha" literally means coincidence or happenstance. Amalek's entire philosophy is that there is no design or providence in the world. Everything is haphazard, dictated by chance, luck and fate. That's why the verse continues: "And [Amalek] did not fear God."
...While Jacob believes that God runs the world and there is an absolute standard of morality, Esav believes that life is random ― and morality is therefore subjective. Esav’s hatred for the message of morality actually forms the basis of all anti-Semitism. Just as the Jews stand for the principle of caring for the vulnerable and weak, Amalek is the opposite ― "attacking the weakest people trailing behind" (Deut. 25:18).... (Source)
It might be worthwhile here to review what Moishele and Menachem said at the New Year regarding Purim 5775. Moishele said...
Then we will come to Purim and we will beg Hashem to save us from Haman and we will have a Haman here, a Haman that we will have to be saved from and we will have to fight, fight our fears, beg Hashem to save us from this awful terrible horrific person and his armies and his police. We will have to beg very hard. Hashem will save us.
Menachem said...
...the whole year will be chock-full of hard things, until we, the real-Jews, will feel that we have no more strength, no strength. But, with G-d's help, we and our families will get through it. But, we will arrive to Purim, and on Purim, this is the time of Haman's fall. Then, the wicked one who was placed over us, he will also go away. He will go away - and not bother us any more.
Maybe this news report is indicating to us that Obama is our present-day Haman. Hmmm.... 

What's a Little Compromise?

21 Shevat 5775

...In the future Esau will wrap himself in a tallis, sit down next to Yakov and say to him, "You are my brother"....Yakov will say to him, "My brother, you will not be like me. "I will lead you to death, I will be the pestilence that leads you to Sheol (Hoshea 13,14). Had I upheld degrees that you promulgated against me, I would have been guilty at the eyes of Heaven. Had I violated them, you would have killed me. (Yalkut Shimoni, Yirmiahu 333)
"That was Esau's intention when he told Yakov, "Let us travel together and I will go before you (Genesis 33,12). He wanted them to join together in both this world and the world to come, to meet each other halfway, with each modifying his conduct until they were alike (Yalkut Shimoni, Genesis 133). Indeed, Esau will even adopt certain tenets of Judaism-such as monotheism, the Divinity of the Torah, and reward and punishment-but only if Israel will give up some of its heritage. Similarly, according to Tanna D'Bei Eliahu Zuta(19), Esau proposed. "Give up some of the mitzvos that divide us. You will thereby enjoy this world and still have half the world to come. Isn't that enough? (Bais Halevy, Vayishlach).
Can one see relevance in these ancient writings for the world of today? Do we not see the pinnacle of Esau's civilization, the country that is the utmost embodiment of his values of individualism and superficiality / image, offering this bargain to sons of Yakov, and most of them have taken it. In return, Esau has placed his political and military might in service of common goals, in support of the so-called "Judeo-Christian" values. Will this friendship continue when Esau sees that Yakov returns to his Law and rejects his extended hand and his conditions of friendship? (Source)
Cast The Foreigner Out‏

...Of late, Jewish supporters of evangelical aid have embarked on a campaign to gain rabbinic approval for Tommy Waller’s Hayovel Ministry. Naturally, when they introduce Waller to these rabbonim, they present a doctored history to make him look kosher. Baruch Hashem, the tide is turning. Anti-missionary experts are meeting with some of these rabbis and providing the evidence that was withheld from them. Many rabbonim are now seeing the problem in the right light for the first time, and they are outraged by this deception. With G-d’s help the true nature of “Brother Esau’s” intent will soon become widely known.
Yet for this to happen, it is critical that Torah committed Jews follow up with concrete actions, by apprising their local rabbis and community leaders of this terrible spiritual onslaught, and demanding action. Apathy and laziness are the villains. This cannot be left to the “experts” who are already up to their necks trying to sound the alarm. The message must get out!

Repentance and Redemption

Q. It's astounding how HKB"H is leading things to the direction of the end...

A. Right, even if someone doesn't hear the radio, doesn't see any newspaper, in any case a Jew can feel that 'it's finished' just from what is happening to him in his personal life.

Q. What, for example, is happening to a person that shows him that it's going to the direction of the end?

A. First of all, all the laws against the Jews, I'm talking about hareidi Jews, they're feeling the pressure of the government against Judaism, and in any case, real Jews can't stand it, it's bad for them. Second thing, we're seeing the new generation of youth, how weak it is, however, the more elderly are feeling that it's beginning to be the weakest. And in addition to this - the economic problem is very harsh. And they're working against us because they want to destroy the hareidim. They don't send them to work in order to help them, they're sending them to work in an intolerable situation, because, look, they're not going to earn enough money to support their families, but already there's also no child-allowances, and there's nothing else that there is in all kinds of countries, so for what is there to work?!... How will it not be, if he works let's say that he earns in an eight-hour-job five thousand sheqels - at best, but how can he live?...

They don't want him to have a lot of children, but they're 'fools', they don't understand the heart, the Jewish head, that if they will tell him: 'It's forbidden for you so many children if you don't have the money to feed them', they don't understand that the real Jews got married even in the Warsaw ghetto right before the Nazis came in, they got married, and even gave birth to children in the Warsaw ghetto. Why? Because it's what Hashem wants! We're showing Hashem that we believe in the future of Am Yisrael, and we're not afraid. And all these souls who are being born - they're bringing closer our righteous Mashiach, the complete redemption.

So, what, we won't give birth to children because the evildoers who are sitting in the Knesset decided that we don't need so many?!... No! We will continue, and continue, and Hashem will help us, like in Egypt, and we're seeing that we're like in Egypt, like the women gave birth also to triplets, also to quadruplets and even quintuplets... No! We won't bend over! It's impossible, impossible, unbearable. And if we won't have bread - then Hashem will give us mann!...

Q. On the other hand we see a great awakening among Am Yisrael...

A. True, Jews are waking up, they are beginning to see and to feel it, because it's impossible not to feel, everyone knew what happened in France, because everyone spoke about it, and there's even news now in Yiddish, in English, in Hebrew, for hareidim, in all languages, and also in French, everyone knows at least a little bit of what happened all over the world, and that also appears to them strange, because it's not logical - most of what is going on. And those evildoers think that it's possible to do, to behave towards the world as if they are all 'fools', good - maybe the non-Jews, but not the Jews...

...Whoever comes close to Hashem - does what he needs to do. Whoever rejects the unnecessary materialism - he's a tzadik, whoever lives truly according to the Torah - he's a tzadik. 

...Hashem is with us, He will help us, only, those who don't want to be real Jews - they won't survive, so there will be few Jews remaining. I know one thing: a Jew who tries to be close to Hashem, who feels that He is his Father, that he's all for His sake, then he will survive.

The Rise in Antisemitism

Q. You talked about the Shekhinah leaving from abroad, that here it is possible to feel more closeness to Hashem. There's an additional point here that when the Shekhinah leaves - there is less protection for Jews who remain abroad...

A. That's clear, and there's another manifestation of this, and that's the phenomenon of antisemitism, and it's clear, we're seeing it clearly. It's not like before WWII when it was mainly in Germany and these places, and this also is not right, because even in America there was enough antisemitism, in all kinds of places, and everyone remembers the signs advertising in exclusive clubs proclaiming: 'No entrance to Jews or dogs'...

Q. Is the situation like today so hard with antisemitism?

A. We are in exactly the same situation like in the same period - on the eve of WWII. The non-Jews were the same thing, it doesn't matter who, French or Polish or American, so were the great majority of the Western countries of Edom. 'Edom' was created with hatred for Jews, they were born with it, it's part of their genes. There are a few non-Jews who aren't like that, but it's not many. I heard that there is a test today that shows them how much percentage within the non-Jew, how much percentage of them is Jewish... The non-Jew can do this test [DNA] and see if he has any percentage of Jewishness... From all the mixture over time that entered into the genes. Look, what nonsense, what nonsense. The Jews are a 'unique people' and all the peoples understand they are the most belonging to HKB"H. And we're in a situation that's filled with very great sins, but always 'Daddy - it's Daddy', and that's it. We're connected, He's our Father, He's our King, and He's our Savior.

Q. His theatrical performance, the Prime Minister [of Israel] in France - it appeared like part of the election campaign...

A. No doubt about it - it's all a show, not only this, he's a part from the Edomim who is in this plan.

Q. He never speaks at all about HKB"H, in any event...

A. Netanyahu - he's not connected, he wants Jews without HKB"H, lo aleynu, he doesn't mention HKB"H at all. He's Erev Rav.

Q. What do you think about the signs in Jerusalem: 'Israel loves France', some alliance of love...

A. Those who placed these signs - they are the same people who travel to learn abroad and settle down there, or who want to be like the non-Jews. What does it mean: 'To love France'?!... They are purposely antisemites, and we don't need to flatter them. And if we don't live there - why flatter them for no reason?... Sometimes abroad, you need to flatter the non-Jews, because you have to, but here we have no need, what do we have there?... And even the Jews there shout: Why?!... For the sake of twelve people - three million people are walking in the street?!... They're saying explicitly that it's not for the sake of even one Jew there. They don't like the Jews, even though their president said: "What is this, what is France without Jews?!... It's not France." Just a lie, nonsense.

Q. Will the Jews really come to Eretz Yisrael?

A. There will be those who will arrive to the Land. But, the majority - to our great sadness they won't come. But, those who are really Jewish souls - the majority will come. You can't say that whoever doesn't come is not a real-Jew, that's not right, he can go to America, but at some stage he will come here.

Q. Do the Erev Rav have a Jewish root?

A. Even if there was some kind of lineage, the Erev Rav - they're Jews alright, but they weren't underneath Har Sinai when Hashem raised it above our heads and we said 'na'aseh v'nishmah' - but they weren't there, they were on the side. They didn't receive the Torah.

Q. The religious Jews in France are more connected to Eretz Yisrael...

A. Most of the Sephardim who are from the countries Morocco and Tunisia who came there - they're believers, among them there is not so much confusion, if there's anyone who has confusion about whether they really belong to France or not - it's the Ashkenazim there, that they went to the school, etc., or they're Reform or nearly-non-Jews, they're the ones in the most trouble, indeed there are also Sephardim, but most of the Sephardim know the truth, it's just simply comfortable for them, because they are receiving a lot of child-allowances, receiving help with home-rental, and it's simply much easier for them, from a financial point of view.

The Millions March

Q. The extreme response from the world to the events is very strange...

A. Everything that happened in Paris and in France - it was half-show, but the Arabs were the unfortunate ones, they thought they were doing it 'for real', but the most beautiful show was the forty heads of state marching there hand in hand... and how they walked in the street "hand in hand", and each one had some knife from the side... because no one there liked any one else, really no one... it's all shows. They hate each other usually, except for the Edomim like the prime minister of Germany and France. So, everyone marched together, everyone together - and each one separately... it's all a lie, lie, lie, lie...

Q. The Americans disappeared from all this 'show' there...

A. The Americans didn't participate, it's likely that they had some part of the script that I don't know, they had calculations - that's for sure. And Netanyahu showing up there at all, they told him explicitly not to come, but he decided to come nevertheless, because if Abu Mazen already came - so why shouldn't he come...

Q. Who did he hold hands with...?

A. Good question... and if previously they said there were a million and a half... and afterwards they said there were 3.8 million people in this march, then of course, it's not correct, but if it's correct - then stupidity like this I've never heard of... because, what is it?... to where did they march?... what did they want to demonstrate?... Oh well, if they were going to Arab areas and making some injuries... but, to march with this stupidity?!...

And those who made these caricatures, did they not know that they crossed the line?!... Didn't they know that they would try to take revenge on them?!... And indeed, they immediately took revenge for it, they threw incendiary bottles into this place, etc., it happened a few years before, but they're also trash - all those who make fun of people. Do they not understand that it's forbidden?!  Of course, they don't understand, because this is our world today: - chutzpah! Chutzpah and cynicism. And it's the thing that's most loved. But, they got theirs as well.

Q. They already made new caricatures there...

A. Right, whoever remains there at this paper - they didn't learn the lesson. They're continuing. And what they draw, so first of all, from an artistic point of view, it's 'so-so', and from the perspective of 'angering the whole world' - it's a huge thing. It angers purposely. And the heads of the Muslim communities, most of them don't want problems, they want to live quietly, so they're terribly alarmed, and they let it be known explicitly that the so-called 'Prophet Muhammed' is great enough so that there's no need to pay attention to the stupidity of whoever draws a brazen thing like this, and it's really sensible and wise, but the majority - it's angered, and there will be not a little blood over it.

Q. It's the hand of Heaven to fulfill all the prophets!...

A. Everything is from Hashem, and we're seeing at the moment exactly what is written about the war between Edom and Yishmael. And don't forget that it's "Edom" who is bringing all the Muslims to France and to all of Europe, they themselves are bringing them, [Devash: Just like the US has opened its borders to illegals.] they're bringing them precisely for the sake of making conflict, precisely for the sake of making chaos - and to rule over them.

And not only this, hear me, in a little while and already it's happening. Look, for example in France there are thousands of soldiers in the street, and when there will be something else small then even in America there will be more and more police in the street, and not just police, they have military equipment - for these police. And there's also an army really in the street, with their equipment!  So, therefore, in a little while, and it's already happening, this army will control every Western country. And they've already taken over in other places - but they will control every Western country, and this is the whole goal, the whole goal.

In a little while you will see how they will control in the United States. They've brought small tanks into the police! Why do the police need a tank?!... And they've brought to them various machines like these that the military used in Iraq, most of them are huge and who knows what they're for, the main thing is that they are able to kill 'massively', and the population will be their slaves, and they won't be able to resist.

And he [Obama] opened there all the gates, for all those who want to pass through, including Arabs, including Mexicans, including absolutely everyone, just come, come to America!... What does it need to be?!... Either they're crazy - or they know what they are doing. They have a goal that we don't see, they have an agenda (New World Order), and the agenda is that they will have countries of slaves and they will rule over them, and those who don't want to agree to it - then they will put them in the camps  that they have all over the United States, and they will liquidate them, G-d forbid! (FEMA campsThat's their plan, but Hashem has His own plan. They have to show the very, very biggest evilness that they have, they have to, how do you say, really 'completely come out of the closet', and then Hashem will wipe them out from reality. At the moment we're still not seeing enough of their face, it's not yet 'until the end'.

Q. Is it even legal for the soldiers to patrol within the cities in the United States?

A. It is definitely not legal, it's written explicitly that soldiers can't wander around in America or take control in the United States, over the cities, etc., but that doesn't bother this black, what do they call him? 'Obamba'... It doesn't bother him at all. Because this is the goal of the people who sent him. And if you all think there is some truth in elections...  It's nonsense, there are already quite a few presidents who came in without real elections. It's all a lie. He came in - and he's doing the job they requested from him: to destroy the democracy of the United States, only he's amazed at how easily it went...

Q. The Russian bear is too quiet lately, we're not hearing them...

A. The Russians - in a little while we'll hear from them, and then say: 'Oy vey! Again the Russians!...' The Russians can't be quiet, they're a big part of the game here, they are central players here.

Q. It's strange that this relatively minor event is making noise all over the world...

A. Right. In America 3000 people were killed and the great majority were non-Jews, the vast majority. And what kind of march did they do there?!...  Here there were twelve killed. They certainly didn't come for the sake of the Jews, they came for the sake of the non-Jews who were killed, so what, what is it?... It's nonsense. It was just exactly what they needed, to get everyone riled up, to make them afraid.

Q. Does it interest them at all that people were killed?!...

A. The population - they care, because they're afraid, they feel the threat.
