Do the Muslims believe BO and Putin are Gog and Magog? The answer, amazingly, is Yes!
I recently listened to two hours of a Pakistani “Kiruv” imam darshan out the Muslim version of the End of Days. Its obvious that this speaker is a circuit professional. I am now starting to understand at a deeper level the messages that are inspiring the Muslim World.
A Picture Tells A Thousand Words. . . . .
Islamic Gog and Magog Highlights
In the videos, the Imam explains the following points:
- The European Zionists are the spawn of illegitimate Khazar converts, who converted to both Christianity and Judaism to take over the world. They are at the root and lead of the evil New World Order, Gog-Magog-Zionist, anti-Islam conspiracy.
- The purpose of Gog and Magog is to punish the Jews because they rejected Muhammed. Jews were allowed back from their exile so they would convert to Islam – “The door to E”Y for the Jews is through Muhammed.” If rebellious and wicked Jews don’t convert to Islam, they deserve the worst punishments.
- In addition to not converting to Islam, the Jews will be punished for their wickedness, which includes polluting the Middle East with homosexuality, licentiousness, pornography, hyper-materialism, and unsustainable exploitation of the natural environment (e.g. water use abuse).
- Proof that the European Zionists have been empowered by Allah to rise before their ultimate fall is the disproportionately tremendous Jewish secular achievements.
- Gog and Magog, led by a Jewish anti-christ figure, Daajal, will fight a war against Islam.
- During this disasterous war, the Jews will suffer tremendously for their wickedness.
- Islamic armies will fight the Gog-Magog-Zionists-Daajal and defeat them. Muslim armies will conquer and occupy E”Y, and deliver the worst punishments to the Jews for their wickedness and refusal to convert to Islam.
The most striking thing to me during the entire “drush” was the absolute lack of humility demonstrated by the Imam. When Jewish people are faced with perceived enemies, we place ultimate blame on ourselves and seek to repent. Here, the Imam does not urge his followers in the slightest to look at themselves, but rather casts full blame and aspersion on others. And when it comes to punishing the Jews, he demonically chuckles and smiles. (I’ve seen this before in a speech by Khomeini).
Also striking was the notion of “Power” as moral sanction. The Imam explains that Power of Force indicates favor. Thus, when Islam has the Power of Force to destroy the Jews, it is a sign that Allah approves of the Muslims and sanctions their violent deeds. Its as if an abusive husband beats his wife and claims, “G-d approves of my beating you because he made me stronger than you and able to beat you.”
A Deeper Look
Based on a tip by a reader, I recently listed to Rabbi Kessin speak about the End of Days. During the class, Rabbi Kessin explains how at the End of Days the Satan (Samael), which is the Angel of Esav, will begin to fall because he is running out of holy “sparks”. He will make a deal with the Angel of Yishmael – in exchange for sparks of holiness brought down by Yishmael (how and why he can do this is in the class), Yishmael will be granted full power over the world.
Thus, at the End of Days, Yishmael stands in the Satan’s stead. Now we can understand what is going on here with the Islamic view of the End of Days described above.
In essence, Yishmael is increasingly adopting roles usually reserved for the Satan. Yishmael has replaced Esav (Christendom) as the Jewish people’s chief prosecutor and executor. As prosecutor, they argue that the Jews of acting wickedly. As executor, they believe it is their mission and purpose to punish the Jews.
If we posit that Yishmael is standing in place of the Satan, we can glean important messages here that will help all of us as we prepare to do tshuva.
- The Jewish people need to repent from wrongdoing. The principal tshuva point is in our personal integrity in terms of sexual purity according to halacha. This is the big area the Satan is prosecuting us for – homosexuality, promiscuity, immodesty, etc. This is especially so since Yishmael’s entire claim to E”Y rests on the merit of his brit milah. We have to be able to counter with the merit of our own.
- The Jewish people need to continually nurture and protect the physical environment of E”Y. Fortunately, great strides continue to be made in this area, and it should continue. The Orthodox population, in particular, should be very conscientious in this regard (lets clean up Yerushalyim!).
- We should pray that, somehow, the group of reincarnated souls known as the Erev Rav, the mixed multitude, are removed from our midst peaceably, without destroying the honeypot. When the Satan prosecutes against the “Zionists”, this is the group he is truly prosecuting against. (This is at the spiritual root, but as the spiritual prosecution manifests through humans, Zionists becomes a code for “Jews” – hence, truth mixes with falsehood – which the Satan is good at!).
- We should pray fervently that this “Muslims win” scenario, i.e. the “Paras wins” scenario of the Talmud, does not occur.
In conclusion, the Islamic End of Days scenario contains ironic kernels of truth, and a frightening collective of falsehood. We can learn from both. The kernels of truth can inspire us to do thsuva, as the prosecutions come from the mouth of Satan himself.
And the collective of falsehood teaches us how wonderful the Jewish people are such that the nations so desperately want to be the victims of our enemies (Gog and Magog) to demonstrate they (the Muslims) are the new us (Jews).
Talk about an insecurity complex! – And they must be insecure, because at the true End of Days, like the Satan, the Angel of Yishmael will have its downfall.
HaShem should guide, bless, and protect us all!
