Its Not The Terrorists, Stupid!

September 19, 2010

Last week, the US announced a $60 billion arms deal with the Saudis, and Russia announced an advanced cruise missle deal with Syria.  As predicted by our Sages, at the End of Days Esav is unabashedly arming Ishmael.

Instead of calling it like it is, the government of the State of Israel publicly accepts the ruse that the Saudi arms are for “protection” against Iran, and that the main concern with the Russia-Syria deal is that the cruise missiles could fall into the hands of the “terrorists.”

As if the Saudis and the Syrians aren’t sworn enemies of the Jews?

The Arabs are playing the two-headed snake game of “moderates” versus “terrorists” and the government of Israel is publicly letting them.

For better and worse, Yishmael’s time as the “head” has arrived – and as the Baal haTurim says at the end of parshat Chayei Sarah: “When Yishmael falls at the end of days, the Son of David will sprout.” To have a fall, they must first rise.


Just Insane – Ruel & Yishmael’s $60 Billion Deal

September 15, 2010

America does a record-breaking $60 billion arms deal with the Saudis?

America pressures Arab countries to make donations to the Palestinian Authority?

Things are just getting weirder and weirder – obviously the yad HaShem.

Why 60 Billion?

The word Sod – Foundation – stands for sexual purity – the brit milah.  The Abir Yakov explains that the letter Samach, which has the gematria of 60, stands for Sod.

Our Sages teach us that Yishmael argued with Yitzhak, claiming he was more meritorious because he had a brit milah performed when he was 13, rather than when he was 8 days old, like Yitzhak.  Yishmael claimed that he was greater for making such a sacrifice.  Yitzah responded that he was wiling to sacrifice all of his limbs for HaShem, not just his brit milah.

Thus, at a minimum the Jewish people must guard the brit milah, the covenant.  For if we can’t do this, then what hope do we have against Yishmael’s prosecutions?

The only hope we have is returning to HaShem – only with his help can any Jew hope to fight the yetzer haras of today.

Now is the time for a fresh start!!

Thirteen Attributes of Mercy

Shaking The Tree

September 5, 2010

Rashi in last week’s parsha states that the gathering of the exiles will be so difficult that its as if HaShem himself has to grab each person individually by the hands and pull them out.  Then he cites a verse from Isaiah (27:12), “. . . they will be gathered, one by one, the children of Israel.”

I decided to look at this verse deeper and discovered that the first part of the verse states, “It will be on that date that HaShem hits the stalks.”  Rashi there explains that the concept is that HaShem hits the olive tree and detaches the olives, and then picks them up one by one.

Thus is appears that the ingathering of our exile will involve a process where HaShem shakes the trees, e.g., the things that give live to Jews in exile and to which they are attached – only then can they be gathered.  Connections need to be severed first.

And speaking of shaking, see the following amazing story trend line coming out of Christchurch, New Zealand.

I believe HaShem is shaking that tree – we should all open our eyes and see. There is a real message here in my opinion.

10th Generation – Everywhere I Go

September 3, 2010

The more and more I delve into Breslov Torah (as transmitted by R. Shalom Arush and his talmid mv’hk, R. Lazer Brody), the more I realize that what the Shtpolier Zeidy had to say about R. Nachman of Breslov was true – He was ten generations too early.

And we are the the 10th generation.

I strongly believe that R. Nachman of Breslev’s Torah is the balm for this generation’s wounds, and will nurse us and keep us spiritually alive until Moshiach comes.

A true story:

I attended a “Litvish’e” baal t’shuva Yeshiva in New York.  There were the typical guys there who used to jokingly mock Breslev, as if they learned it was a merit to knock it. This “harmless” loshon hara closed a lot of guys off to important Torah concepts – “Oh, Breslev?”

The Yeshiva arranged for all of us to travel to Torah v’Daas and have a class from the Holy R. Pam, tzkl, the gedol ha’dor of America, who is “Litivish.”  It was a very exciting trip for all of us.

I never forget watching R. Pam enter the room. His physical stature was so small, but he just radiated humility and greatness.

R. Pam spoke and proceeded to give a drasha in the name of R. Nachman of Breslev!  Rav Pam giving over R. Nachman!!

The class was amazing, because of what was said and who said it. It big hizuk for us. And we had a great time teasing our friends afterward, “Hey, R. Pam holds by R. Nachman.”

R. Nachman and E”Y

Right now, I am dreaming that this year should be the Year that I merit to come to live in the land, together with my family. So I thought I’d post some of R. Nachman’s thoughts on the subject:

In the spring of 5558 (1798 C.E.) Rebbe Nachman decided to travel to Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel), in accordance with his own words, to which he further added in Sefer Ha’midot: “As a result of the yearning a person has for coming to Eretz Yisrael, he is granted great livelihood” and “through having a new idea in Torah, a person draws upon himself the holiness of Eretz Yisrael”.
Rebbe Nachman’s devotions in Eretz Yisrael were most unique. All the days of his life, he said that all his liveliness is rooted in meriting being in Eretz Yisrael. His expression is famous: “Everywhere I go, I am on my way to Eretz Yisrael”.

Scammed By Two Headed Snake

September 1, 2010

Hamas and the PA continue to scam the world, successfully.

First, a Hamas attack that kills 4 holy Jewish souls.  Then, a PA “crackdown” to catch the offenders.

This is all a set up for the PA to “prove” they are genuinely interested in peace and security for Israel.

Hamas and PA are two heads of the same snake, and they are scamming the world (sort of, but really, the truth is in plain sight).
