Just an amazing piece by Moshe Feiglin:
This article is not about the Holocaust that happened. It is about the Holocaust that is liable to come knocking on our door. If you are weak of heart, stop reading now. But if you are staying with me, please take a deep breath, forget about secondary political issues and internalize what I am writing. The trains to Auschwitz did not have separate cars for Right and Left, Haredi and secular.
It is popular to pontificate on the lesson of the Holocaust. Every person takes the Holocaust to the place that is comfortable for him. I would like to discuss a very basic lesson that I have never seen disproved: The Western world will not try too hard to close down the gas chambers. Not only that. It will even indirectly stoke them.
True, after the Holocaust, in a rare moment of good will, the world voted to partition the Land of Israel and to recognize the fledgling Jewish state. But this recognition had no practical implications. Seven Arab armies invaded the tiny area allocated to Israel. The world did not lift a finger. The Egyptian army got to within thirty kilometers of Tel Aviv, murdering and destroying every person and settlement in its path. They cut through the Negev and reached Beit Lechem. The Jordanians were just twenty minutes away from Israel’s coast. The Syrians captured Mishmar Hayarden – and destroyed it, of course.
Three years after the Holocaust, the Western world waited once again for the Arabs to finish off the dirty work. It did nothing to help Israel. But then, with G-d’s loving grace, the situation turned around. The nascent IDF stopped the Arab armies. On the southern front, Yigal Alon commanded over some brilliant maneuvers that more or less eliminated the Egyptian army. The IDF forces got all the way to El Arish inside Egypt.
When that happened, Britain threatened that if the IDF would not retreat, it would invade Israel. America pressured, Ben Gurion gave in and the new norm was set: When the Jews are in danger, the world waits patiently. When they start to win, the world stops them.
The Western world – upon all its beauty and advantages – will always act as a static anvil for the murderous hammer descending upon the Jews from above – be it the Nazi hammer, the Arab hammer or any other murderous, anti Jewish hammer.
The time when we will have to decide if we are willing to entrust our fate to the very same West that will always be happy to be rid of the “Israel Problem” is rapidly approaching. We see ourselves as an inseparable part of the Western world. It is difficult for us to accept that the West, our cultural patron, will simply close its eyes with relief when six million Jews in Israel will once again be facing wholesale slaughter.
But that is precisely the direction that events are taking. The only difference between 1948 and today is that then we were a rabbit that thought it was a lion and today we are a lion that thinks it is a rabbit. In 1948, our physical weakness invited invasion. Today, our mental weakness invites invasion.
What invasion am I talking about? If we were not living in denial, the media would be abuzz about Samantha Power, head of the National Security Council, who advocates taking the funds that the US now invests in the IDF and investing them instead in the ‘Palestinian’ army. In no uncertain terms, she discusses a possible US invasion of Israel – to keep the peace, of course. When that goal is accomplished, Power advocates leaving us here to enjoy the loving kindness of the righteous souls in Ramallah.
As surrealistic as all of this sounds now, it is most important to remember that only terror organizations and Arab states used to deny Israel’s right to exist. Now this concept is coffee table talk throughout Europe. The denial of the right to exist always precedes physical annihilation. That is another important lesson of the Holocaust.
Tony Blair, the European Union’s envoy to the Mid-East, recently said that Europe would accept the Hamas as a negotiating partner, refusing to make that contingent on Hamas recognition of Israel’s right to exist. When officials of the stature of Power and Blair make these statements, they are charting the course for Western policy.
After the UN will recognize a Palestinian state at the 1967 borders, the Arabs will demand an Israeli retreat. To make sure we know they mean business, they will punctuate their demands with missiles on Israel’s cities. Israel will be forced to respond and the international coalition will rev up its motors to come save the peace.
All signs point to the fact that Israel is currently building the foundations for a Palestinian state and is planning an instant, southern-Lebanon-style retreat from Judea and Samaria. Something like, ‘Get on the buses now and we’ll explain later.’
But the Arabs don’t really want a state. All that they want is to end Jewish sovereignty in Israel. Their demands will intensify after Israel’s retreat from Judea and Samaria as per the Gush Katif aftermath model. They will demand the Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, right of return for their ‘refugees’, compensation payments, an international peace keeping force and what not. In the meantime, they will continue to bombard us with missiles. Israel’s military response will serve the West with its excuse to intervene. At this point, an exhausted Israel will have to decide: Either open the Ashdod port to the US Navy forces or fight against the entire world.
All of Israel’s ‘enlightened’ elites will unequivocally support opening Israel’s gates to the
‘Peacekeeping’ forces. From the President all the way down to the writers in the major newspapers, they will have no other solution. “And what is better?” they will ask. “Living in the shadow of the West, or fighting a war being forced upon us by Jewish fundamentalists?” The patriotic declarations being sounded today in the Likud will turn into ‘pragmatic’ rhetoric. The West is the very air that we breathe and the lesson of the Holocaust will be ignored.
The last thing that the policy-makers are capable of thinking is that we are a nation in our own merit, a nation that relies on its own ethical code. They will never come to terms with the fact that we are not Western or Eastern; we are simply Jews who, as opposed to 1948 – are not weak at all. We are a formidable economic and military power and are capable of extracting a terrible price from any country in the world that will threaten our sovereignty.
We will never even think that the entire problem does not exist in reality, but only in our minds. In other words, our psychological dependency on the West actually invites this scenario. No Western country would challenge our sovereignty if it had the slightest fear of an Israeli response. We are a lion that thinks it is a rabbit. But knowing this country, I do not expect that we will respond to threats on our sovereignty in the manner that any normal nation would respond. Instead, Israel will open its gates to the ‘Peacekeeping’ forces. The IDF will be disbanded and the rest of the story has already been experienced by the Jewish People throughout its long and painful history.
As a believing Jew, I pray that our Father in heaven will perform a miracle and that one year from now, you will be able to take this article and laugh at me. I am a great believer in the Nation of Israel and anticipate that unexpected energies will emerge in the nick of time to prevent this scenario.
As Independence Day approaches, we must say loudly and clearly: There is life after America. The struggle is not for the settlements. The danger is much more existential and all-inclusive. It is not military danger. It is not economic danger. The danger is our total collapse in a process that is all-too reminiscent of the fall of Czechoslovakia. The moment that a state entrusts its existence to other states that have other interests, its existence becomes transient.
It is urgent to cut the psychological ropes binding us to the West. We are not Americans. We are Israelis and we have an independent and strong faith and culture from which we draw our own existential legitimacy – not from the West.
There is life after America. Put it on stickers. Blog it. Write it on your social media. Broadcast it at rallies and wherever you can. We do not need American aid. All that we need is to return to our tried and true Jewish identity.
To my Israeli brethren,
Not only do you not need America, you also have to leave your Israeli culture behind. You need to be more Jewish, more Torahdik and more reliant on Borey Olam.
You need a Teshuva revolution. Look at how degenerate your youth population has become.
Teshuva NOW! That’s the only solution.
People in E”Y are doing tshuva – many in the land merit the presence of the Shekina.
ok! I think you are right.
The Left will never agree to complete independence from America because the alternative is too much for them to handle – a Jewish State with all its religious implications. The West is where their heart is – not Jerusalem.
From “The Secret War Against the Jews” by John Loftus and Mark Arons (page 49)
In 1943 the Holocaust was in full operation, but in April of that year in Bermuda, a conference of British and American officials formally decided that nothing should be done about it. They “ruled out all plans for mass rescue.” The British Foreign office and the US State Department were both afraid that the Third Reich would be quite willing, indeed eager, to stop the gas chambers, empty the concentration camps, and let thousands if not millions, of Jewish survivors emigrate to freedom in the West. The foreign office “revealed in confidence” to the State Department its fear that Hitler might permit mass exodus. If approaches to Germany to release Jews were “pressed too much that is exactly what might happen.”
Yes, it is an amazing piece with unfortunately incredible accuracy on so many points and hopefully not on others for the future. The Samantha Powers aspect is also something that many may be familiar with in some classic Jewish sources with regards to Gog U’Magog sending in troops to do battle with E’Y at the End of Days. Not a particularly good thought, yet we must do one thing (of many thingsnow) and that is teshuva.
These troops come initially to do battle with Yishmael. Non-religious Jews and the gentile elements of the IDF will fight alongside the Americans to “evenhandedly enforce” the peace between Arabs and Jews, to the real loss of blood and tears on the Jewish side, as the Nations try to crush the Jewish dream of redemption. (See Malbim on Yehezkel).
In the middle of the conflict, the Jews fighting alongside the Nations will realize they’ve been suckered. They will see that the Nations make no difference between them and the Jews they are “peacekeeping” against. They will realize the Nations have come in for the kill.
This will be the moment of despair foretold by our Sages – Moshiach will not come until the Jews despair of his coming (Sanehedrin).
At this point, the the redemption will begin. Read Yehezkel.
Dispair for some, which will ultimately move them to the side to which they belong. Hashem is moving thing along to our benefit, we are closer than most think. Thank you Hashem for your kindness!
I am Yaakov. I am not Esav. I daven and everyday say to Hashem that I do not want to inherit anything that is the inheritance of Amelek, Edom, Esav; only my soul should be distinctly and recognizably only Israel, Yaakov, and belonging to Hashem-the G-D of Israel. I should never be mistaken for the ones who would stand up against the G-D of Israel, and raise their hand to strike against the armies of the House of David. I will only fight alongside the Armies of the House of David, and Eliyahu HaNavi; NEVER against David or Eliyahu. I must never be mistaken, to be THAT stupid.
Ok, got it. Thanks. I have a couple of seforim that mention this: Redemption Unfolding and Ishmaelite Exile and I believe another one as well. It is something that we can see happening before our very eyes. When I read the Samantha Powers stuff I did a double take because it was what I had read a few years ago and to see this unfolding influences teshuva because it is in the prophets words and one would have to be in denial to try to put these things aside…. What area of Yehezkel specifically?
jewishendofdays when will this whole thing start according to you, sometime between July and August ?
The bible tells us, that there will come another Holocaust. It is a fight betweenn good and evel. The evel forces will allways try to destroy the Jews,because salvation comes from the Jews, thats the plan of G-d. He is the creator of all and will surly win. But we can only win with Him. No one , not Israel or an induvidual has a chance against evel without G-d. Every person without a personal relationship will end in hell with everlasting torment, and thats worst than the Holocaust. Because we have to go through the fire, we have to seek His face and to return to the Allmighty one (Isa 10,21).
He is the Creator of Heaven and Earth, we can find Him also in Isa 9,5+6.
[…] Read Entire Story in Jews End of Days […]
In the last days Jews from every part of the world will return to Israel in mass numbers including from America. I believe that some will have to be forced to leave a comfortable life in order to get them there. Ha Shem has the plan to do this and I believe supporters of Israel will also be included with the Jews. In the meantime I pray that Israel will act as a lion and not a rabbit and claim her land.
In Divrei Hayyamim bet it is written, “if My people who are called by MY Name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made …
It is incumbent upon us to start praying this passage asking HaShem to move on the heart of the nation in both the religious and the secular societies, to call on the Name of HaShem … to be awakened to the deep, gross, perverse sins that exist both among the religious and the secular communities including that of homosexuality. The key is in the “turning from our wicked ways” not just in the prayer of Tsuvah.
We are also preceded by excellent examples of the power of prevailing prayer. If everyone who is praying continues to keep praying like Daniel in ancient days — we will (as we have) see some amazing miracles. Daniel’s prayers and the prayers of the righteous caused Kingdoms to fall that threatened Jewish extinction, as we also see in the book of Esther. Trials will come because of the prayer of a Tzaddik, but because G-D sees the affliction of the Tzaddik — adversary’s are destroyed and deliverance is received!
I am an American, but I am a Christian first! My heart and prayers go out to you, as a people and a nation. I know that only our faith truly separates us, because YHWH blessed be His name, created all mankind as equals, and that no matter what linet we come from be it through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or anyone else, we all started from Adam. It is scary to see G_d’s plan unfold right before our very eyes, but I just read from Psalm 102 today, through the fiery trials ahead, Mashiach will come. Again only our distinct faith separates us, because I truly believe that Yahshua is the Mashiach, and that He will come again as He promised according to not just the bible, but the Torah and the prophets. Daniel said that He would be cut off, but not for Himself. Isaiah said that He would suffer and be crushed for our salvation, not just for Jews but for gentiles too. Remember we’re all from Adam. But as for the days that lie ahead, I only hope that we would not be judged as a nation but as a people, people who love YHWH blessed be His name, as well as His chosen people, you as Jews. YHWH grant you His strength, boldness, courage and His Spirit through the darkest of nights ahead. We will be praying and supporting the Jews in every which way that we can. Yahshua said that He will judge the nations according to how the nations treat His bretheren, the Jews. The whole world will know that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the LORD of all the universe. If i may, just remember Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah in the fiery furnace, that there were not 3 but 4 of them, and that the fourth looked like the Son of God, Mashiach.

The late Meir Kahane was right! There will be a holocaust in America. Jews need to get out and build up the only nation that welcomes them… Israel. The U.S. Nazi fascists are setting up their security state quickly.
Kahane also predicted that the U.S. economy will keep disintegrating, finally into civil unrest and strife. Try leaving the U.S. then with any assets. TOO LATE!
There are already extensive cash controls in leaving the USA. Cash controls=people controls.
Israel will be alright despite the traitors. G-d did not put the Jewish people back into their land to fulfill the Angel’s promise to Daniel in vain. Jerusalem itself, will defended by Mashiach, when that time comes, that is, the second battle of Armageddon. Indeed, the prophecy of Obadiah tells us what will happen to modern-day Esau, the Palestinians, and their shrines.
Meanwhile, keep exposing the many, many enemies of Israel and the Jewish People. David had more enemies than practically any man that ever lived… yet he, by the strong arm of YHWH disposed of them all. This is the type of modern Israel, who will slay all the
giants, goliaths, and the heathen that rage against G-d’s anointed People.
It has nothing two do with America. It has everything to do with the fact that the Jewish people rejected Jesus as their Messiah. There will be another Holocaust much worse than the earlier one and out of your fear you are driving it to that very end point by trying to create your own security
Jews aren’t doing what they’re supposed to do, but it isn’t failure to accept JC as Messiah.
