Reb Gutman at Mystical Paths writes about a Jewish and a gentile man he met at the kotel.
Turns out, the gentile man’s mother saved the Jewish man from certain death during the Holocaust. Rightly so, Reb Gutman greatly praises the gentile man’s family for their heroic deed.
In fact, the gentile’s fundamental test at the End of Days, the test that indicates if they are evil or good, is whether they will save a Jew during a time of Jewish persecution (HaShem should protect us!).
If a gentile risks his life to protect innocent Jewish blood, they are with HaShem. If not, they are “with Nebucadnezzar and his friends.”

The Italian embassy in Teheran was attacked today by Iranian militiamen. Of course, the capital of Italy is Rome, and Rome means Edom.
In essence, this small attack may represent an initial “small hole in the dike” leading to outright war between Edom and Paras.
HaShem should help us all get ready, spiritually and physically, to endure the coming storm.

Many folks are prematurely ecstatic about the downfall of PBO. Really, his failure to accomplish anything domestically will force his hand to wage war.
After all, while PBO can’t unilaterally dictate to Congress or the Supreme Court, he can dictate to the military (and seek Congressional approval after the fact).
Several weeks ago this blog predicted that launching a war against Paras would be PBO’s rabbit out of the hat to stay in power. Today, one of PBO’s staunchest opponents, boldy states the same.
Of course, Edom’s defeat of Paras will not immediately manifest as a good thing for the Jewish people, but rather will set the stage for Gog and Magog.
All we can do, and what we are supposed to do, is tshuva – each small step towards reconnecting with HaShem through learning Torah and doing Mitzvot (especially acts of kindness) reduces the severity of the birthpangs of the coming of Moshiach (mamtik ha’dinim).

Every day, Jews say in the blessing of Light before the Shemah: “. . . He creates new things, He is the master of wars. . . ”
Truly, substantial and lasting “new” changes in the global dynamic occur through war – and that’s what we’re facing here with Edom vs. Paras. Unfortunately, Edom vs. Paras is not going to be a “pain free” war for the Western home front like the Iraq wars and Afghanistan. This conflict will constitute a destabilizing “world war” which will profoundly effect the entire Jewish people, materially and spiritually.
The purpose of this “new” global dynamic is to set the stage for the rise of Armelus and the war of Gog and Magog – the final conflict wherein the nations (represented by their two seminal forces, Edom and Yishmael) attempt to force the Jewish people to “agree” to give up the Temple Mount, and all that it represents and is, forever.
HaShem should protect us all, and inspire and help us all to do tshuva!
