Yesterday, my husband and I had a meeting in Itamar.


Perhaps more on what that is all about another time. But it wasn’t a meeting that we wanted to push off or reschedule, so despite the shooting attack in the middle of Huwara yesterday, where Alexander David Dov ben Necha Rachel was shot in the head at point-blank range with a Carlo machine gun – and BH somehow survived! – we went.

We got to Huwara around 9pm.

There were army all over the place, Huwara was in  lockdown, and as we drove through the dark, deserted streets, the only lights on were the ghostly green ‘Ramadan’ lights, that had been wrapped around the turrets of one of the local mosques.

It was such a bizarre experience.


We drove out, again through Huwara, around 11pm.

By that point, the road had been opened and there were a couple of other cars making the trip.

In the night like that, with soldiers every 100 metres and the place in lockdown, it wasn’t scary at all, to be honest.

They are shooting people all the time at the moment – and not just in Israel, or the Shomron.

(Remember a couple of weeks’ back, when two people got shot outside shuls in LA?)

I guess though, some places it’s easier to live the illusion that you’re in control of your life, and your ‘personal safety’, when you don’t have to drive through a town like Huwara every day just to get your groceries, or to go to work, or to get to other bits of the country.


BH, they are building a bypass road currently, that neatly skirts most of Huwara and should solve most of the problems of sitting-duck Jews being stuck in traffic jams in the middle of Huwara, just waiting for a terrorist to come and shoot them, God forbid.

That road will be ready in about a year and a half.

My mum tells me it would have been ready a long time ago, except Merav Michaeli froze the whole project when she was Transportation Minister.

But I guess the point is, I have been feeling pretty shaken up the last three weeks, ever since that first shooting attack in Huwara three weeks ago, that happened 20 minutes after we drove through it.



A bit of me has been having a strong urge to try and run away since then.

From all the terror, the madness, the violence, the pointless arguing and ‘demonstrations’, the lies, the bad middot that is keeping us all trapped in this paradigm of letting fake and manipulative headlines suck us dry of all our energy and empathy.

But last week when we were having a few days up North, God gave me the clear message, again, that you can’t run away.

Let’s not talk about the bomb that our lying government claims was planted in Megiddo by some ‘Hezbollah operative’, who somehow managed to get across the border with Lebanon unnoticed, then drive down the motorway for two hours, before planting a bomb by the side of the road near Megiddo that injured an Arab teenager.

If you believe that story….then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.


Last week, we also went to check out Katzrin, that has a growing Anglo population, is still relatively affordable, and where there is a plan in place to turn it into a proper city, within the next five years.

We got show an off-plan villa, that actually sounds like a really good deal.

It’s so quiet here, you don’t have the same balagan of Jerusalem, and you can own your own villa for the same price as a dilapidated shoebox there!

That’s what the sales guy told us.

He’s right.

We came back home feeling a little confused – and then the reports started up that for the first time in 15 years, our corrupt government is churning our more fear porn about ‘war with Hezbollah’ again.



You can’t run away, Rivka!

God keeps telling me that, loud and clear.

A few months ago, when the thought started crossing my mind that I had to try and find somewhere calmer, greener, cheaper, quieter to live, one of the prayers from the Rav happened to fall out of some sefer that I was putting back on the shelf.

I picked it up, read it, and sighed a deep sigh.

It was a prayer to spend every day of my life in Jerusalem, and to buy a big apartment with 10 rooms in Jerusalem….


It’s taken me a few months to really, finally, understand that message, but I think I am finally at the stage of accepting that expensive, stressful, intense and crazy as Jerusalem is, there is really no-where else I want to live.

After all, it’s holiest city in the holiest land, and despite all the stress and madness – or maybe, even because of it – my life here is mostly just so good.


Today, I went back to my art class with the geriatric protesting grannies.

The conversation turned, as so often it has been, to what is currently going on in the country – but this time, there was a conciliatory note ringing out around the room.

My 79 year old teacher actually came out and said this:

We are all brothers, after all…. it’s good to be a bit flexible with others…and to make peace.

And the other protesting grannies made noises like they really agreed with her.

The country is sick and tired of all the hyped-up ‘confrontation’ and drama and violence.

What most of us want, more than anything else, is peace.

Especially, amongst the Jews.


My daughter also told me that she’s stopped having pointless arguments about ‘judicial reforms’ that are basically all just cack, and won’t help you and me at all.

For example, she told me that the government has apparently trying to pass a law making it legal for politicians to now get paid off directly, instead of having to hide their bribes in secret bank accounts in Panama.

(See below, for  more info on this…)

If this is true, how is that meant to be helping anyone, except them?


There’s a Telegram channel that brings a lot of headlines and news from the grassroots in Israel.

You can see it HERE.

These are a couple of screenshots of what is really going on here:



Who is really behind all this violence in Israel?

The Americans, and especially the American military and spy agencies.

And the Europeans, and especially the ‘elite’ and the spy agencies.

And our politicians are literally regularly meeting up with these enemies of the Jewish people, to sit and plot how best to stir up the hornet’s nest here in the Holy Land.

Everything else is just a distraction, a puppet show.

And Ben Gvir is the direct Israeli equivalent of Trump, i.e. another actor pretending to be on the side of the small guy, but really just playing a part for his masters, designed to fool the masses into thinking democracy somehow still represents them.



We can’t run away, however much we might want to.

But what we can and must do, is to continue to see through all the lies, and to continue to see all the tremendous good that exists in our present crazy reality.

And to continue to live, and plan, and move forward, regardless of all the ‘fear porn’ and paralysing, manipulating headlines.

That’s all we can really do.

But it’s plenty.



My mum sent me some snippets, about Meirav Michaeli freezing the bypass, and other projects, that would open up the Shomron and make it safer for Jews to drive there:

It’s from a website I usually avoid, because of its links to xtians, but for my mum, I will make the exception:

In 2017, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government approved an 800 million shekel plan (around $220 million) to construct bypass roads throughout Judea and Samaria, including the Huwara Bypass Road between the Tapuach and Yitzhar Junctions, to improve security for Israeli motorists while creating safer and modernized roads for Jewish and Arab commuters alike.

However, under the previous government, Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli, the head of the Labor Party, froze road projects in Judea and Samaria, including the bypass road, a spokesperson for the Samaria Regional Council told JNS.

In October 2022, JNS reported that, during an exchange with an audience member on Channel 12, Michaeli stated, “It’s a shame to invest in a place that, at the end of the day, won’t be part of Israel.”


And here’s more about the ‘Gift Law’.

This literally could be the whole reason ‘Bibi’ turned the whole country upside down the last few weeks, only to shelve the parts of the Judicial Reform that might have been useful and helpful, while keeping the bits that enable the government – his government – to pass new laws that can’t be overturned on judicial appeal, and to make it legal for politicians to ‘accept gifts’.

Screenshot and snippet from HERE:

But while the full-right coalition government we elected dropped one and a half balls out of the two it was supposed to swish, it is prepared to pass three personal bills – two to save Netanyahu’s hide, one to bring Aryeh Deri back. All three bills will be submitted for a first plenum vote on Monday, with the idea of passing all three before the end of the winter session….

The other two bills the coalition is planning to pass before Passover are both directly about Netanyahu: the incapacity bill, and the gifts bill…

The Gift Law permits public employees, including elected officials, to receive a financial contribution to help pay for legal proceedings or necessary medical procedures.


Pass the puke bag!

When o when are we going to finally wake up, and to realise that there is no salvation in politics – for anyone, anywhere, at any time?

These people are literally the lowest of the low, with a couple of ‘idealists’ who try to stay the course and get some useful stuff done at the bottom of the ladder, before they too either leave or are consumed by the corruption.

So, save your precious breath banging any more drums for ‘Ben Gvir’, ‘Judicial Reform’, or any other of the whole left/right false paradigm.

Anyone in power is rotten to the core, and bought and paid for by outside interests.

And thanks to these new ‘Bibi bills’, they won’t even have to hide that anymore.

There has been another shooting attack in or near Huwara.

A husband and wife were shot in their car, the husband was apparently shot in the head and is in a serious condition.

I don’t know what the names are for prayers, but please focus your prayers in their direction anyway, God knows who they are.


Despite the fact that I live in Jerusalem, where 10 people have been murdered by terrorists in the last couple of months, the terror in Huwara is hitting me much harder.

We were in Huwara 20 minutes before the two brothers from Har Bracha were shot dead in their car there.

And in a few hours, I am heading out to the Shomron for a meeting – driving through Huwara.



Let’s be clear, that all these ‘right wing politicians’ aren’t stopping this, can’t stop this, and if we’re really being honest here, are probably even stoking things up behind the scenes for their foreign paymasters.

We saw last time, that vigilante actions only backfire on the Jewish community, and get used to demonize ‘settlers’ even more.

So let’s not lose sight of the fact that while it’s Arab fingers on the triggers, doing the actual shooting, the orders for these attacks are coming from abroad, primarily from the US, and from Europe, and they are then ‘facilitated’ by the people who sit in our own government, police and military.

Violence is not going to resolve this problem.

Unrealistic slogans about ‘shipping all the Arabs out to Jordan’ (as if!) is not going to solve anything, and will only turn off large swathes of the Jewish population who are also repulsed by Arabs talking about ‘driving all the Jews into the sea’.


I am totally sickened that the terrorists are continuing to shoot Jews in the Shomron, while our government whistles, and pretends that despite having every square cm of the country covered with AI facial recognition cameras, they have no idea where all these guns and terrorists are coming from, or going to, once they’ve done their murderous deeds.

And I am also totally sickened by the deafening silence coming from the government-sponsored media here, which simply doesn’t talk about all the day-to-day violence currently going on in the Shomron all the time.

This ‘right wing’ government is not defending the people there; it’s not supporting them morally; and it’s looking for all sorts of different ways it can ‘whip things up’ in the Shomron, while locking up more and more people under British ‘administrative detention’ rules which means they can keep them in prison indefinitely, without any evidence of wrong doing.

The lists of Jews being locked up by the Shabak under ‘administrative detention’ rules is continuing to grow longer and longer – under this ‘right wing’ government that so many blind people still believe is working for the simple people who voted them into power.


Violence is not the answer here.

And supporting more ‘puppet politicians’ is not the answer here.

The ONLY answer is prayer and teshuva.

Lots of both.

Lots of asking God to finally destroy our real enemies, who sow terror, hatred and violence between people all the time, in so many different ways, as part of their strategy of ‘divide and conquer’.

Again, I am totally sickened that these acts of terrorism are happening.

But, only a fool would think that the buck stops with the Arab terrorists.

Those terrorists are being armed and enabled by elements within the State of Israel itself, working for the Americans and the Europeans, who hate the Jewish people, hate God, and hate everything Torah-true Judaism represents.

That is the real problem.

And a huge part of finally resolving it, is to finally acknowledge what is really going on here.

You really want to know ‘what is going on’ right now?

Just look at all the accusations flying around.

And understand that Rule Number 1 with dealing with psychos of all stripes, big and small, public figures and private individuals, is this:

Whatever they are accusing others of, that is what they themselves are secretly doing, or want to do.

That doesn’t mean, necessarily, that the person they are accusing isn’t also doing those things.

They might be, they might not be.

But 100% for sure, whatever accusation is being made – the person doing the accusing is guilty of the same crime.


So, bear this in mind, as you read all these headlines, and all the ‘propaganda’ being churned out from all sides at the moment.

Of course, politically, but not only.

When I saw the Rav’s persecutors accuse him over and over and over of being a new ‘Shabtai Zvi’ years ago – that piqued my interest in the whole subject.

And lo and behold…. it turned out that all these persecutors descend directly from hardcore Sabbatean families, and have very tight links with the ‘secular’, Frankist State of Israel they pretend to hate and despise.


Try it out for yourself – you will learn some awesome things!

And, you’ll also come to realise that this is a no-fail mechanism for identifying the real psychos on all sides of whatever debate, discussion or issue you happen to be engaged with, both in your private interactions, and in the outside world.

The confusion and craziness is ratcheting up every day, Baruch Hashem.

That means the evil is very close to finally breaking apart….



But in the meantime, if you want to do something useful, instead of just ranting about corrupt politicians, corrupt bureaucrats, corrupt doctors, corrupt [fill in the blank] – here’s a few ideas.

Try making peace with some of the people in your own dalet amot who are currently upsetting you, or making you angry.

That’s how we really get ‘Peace in the Middle East’, and peace everywhere else – we start by making peace with:

  • God
  • Ourselves
  • The people in our own dalet amot, especially family members


On Purim, I decided to make ‘Peace in the Middle East’ with one of my neighbors.

Three years ago, she cornered me in our local park and asked me if I was ‘vaccinated’.

(She clearly likes a good argument….)

And boy, did she get one.

She threw everything but the the kitchen sink at me, including calling me a ‘Covid murderer’ and ‘hater of Palestinians’.

(I don’t know how the two go together, but somehow they do, at least, for her.)


For the first year after that encounter, I was glaring daggers at her, and giving her aggressive ‘come at me’ vibes.

She used to see me coming, then run away.

Last year, I calmed down, not least because the masks disappeared, and this lady herself ended up with a serious bout of post-‘vaccine’ ‘Covid’, that took her out for weeks and weeks.

After that, she started looking at me in a different way, when we’d cross paths – no longer aggressive, but way more worried.


This year, I decided:

It’s time to make peace in the Middle East.

So, I took her a mishloach manot on Purim – and she was SO happy to have it!

(That effort was inspired by THIS post.)


Peace in the Middle East.

The Arabs are really not the main problem here….


So, try out the projection thing for yourself, see what you discover.

And if you really want to make a difference to the Holy Land, try these:

  • Live here yourself.
  • Buy property here – especially in the Shomron. (THIS company is putting up some gorgeous houses across the Shomron, some of which are even affordable.)
  • Give charity to help your fellow Jew, in whatever way that speaks to you.


Most of my spare cash goes to the Rav and supporting Shuvu Banim – which brings so many blessings into my life, I can’t begin to count them.

But, you can also do things like this:

Support Honenu, which is providing legal representation to people like Amiram Ben Uliel, and so many of the hundreds of other Jews that are being held – indefinitely! – in ‘administrative detention’, even when there is zero evidence they have committed any crimes.

Or maybe, give some money to ‘Friends of Itamar‘, who are working hard to improve the infrastructure of Itamar, the yishuv that is closest to Huwara.

Or, find some other organisation that is doing stuff you believe in and support, to help Jews living in the Holy Land.


That’s how we really make a difference in this crazy world.

We start with ourselves, and watch that ripple effect for the good spread out wider and wider.


PS: If you are sitting there thinking that I’m ‘supporting a pedophile’, God forbid, or something similar, because Rav Berland is my Rav, here’s the low down on that:

The people who are persecuting the Rav are the ones connected to the pedophilia-practising Sabbateans that infest Meah Shearim, and many other ‘ultra orthodox’ conclaves, like Bet Shemesh.

These people are literally close family with the politicians and judiciary of the Frankist State of Israel, and they all descend from the same small group of Sabbatean families that were big followers of Shabtai Tzvi, and practise pedophilia as a result of some terrible, twisted ‘kabbalah’ about how you rectify the world.

This started with Jonathan Eybshutz, and has continued ever since.

And it’s not just in the chassidic world, most of the leaders of the Litvak world also come FROM EXACTLY THE SAME SABBATEAN FAMILIES.

That doesn’t mean all these people are Sabbateans and pedophiles today, God forbid.

But, it DOES mean that there are sick things going on all over the ‘ultra orthodox’ world, that are all being covered up.


When the Rav started shaking things up 40 years ago, and talking about personal holiness, and shmirat eynayim, and bringing sincere, God fearing baalei teshuva into the ultra orthodox world, these old-school Sabbateans went nuts.

Because, you can’t carry on raping and abusing children with impunity, when there are people around who know that’s bad and evil – and haven’t been ‘trained’ to keep their mouth shut and not question authority.

So then, these people went full out – with their Frankist family members in the State of Israel – to try to take the Rav out of the picture, and get his influence and community closed down.


It’s all about P-R-O-J-E-C-T-I-O-N.

Never forget that.

If you want the truth, ask God to show you.

And be prepared to hear what comes back.

There are no shortcuts here.

After a few weeks of feeling totally overwhelmed, my husband decided to book us a break up North.


I had a million things to do, and the weather wasn’t looking so great, but I decided what the heck – let’s do it.

It’s part of something I am trying out in my life more and more, called ‘letting God decide things’.

So, we went, and while it had some good stuff – like practically having the Kinneret to ourselves on a couple of days, and praying in a bunch of cool kevarim, mostly in Tiberius – it also had it’s mediocre, disappointing and boring side.

Like all ‘holidays’.


The first day, I was at the separate beach on the Kinneret, trying to work out why it was taking me literally 40 minutes to blow up my rubber ring.

(My husband clued me in afterwards that there’s a valve you have to kind of ‘push’, to get the air to go in. Who knew?)

So in the meantime, I’m wondering why it is I’m spending 40 minutes of my hour of ‘relaxing swimming time’ trying to blow up a rubber ring in a mode of acute hyperventilation that was anything but relaxing, just so I could ‘relax more’ by floating on it, when it was finally inflated.

The message came back loud and clear:

It’s like that story of the fisherman, who is told to go and make 5 gazillion dollars building and selling a fishing empire, just so he can spend most of his time…catching fish.

That’s us.

You and me.

Brainwashed into thinking that all this ‘holiday’ stuff and ‘relaxing’ stuff is actually going to make us feel good and ‘relaxed’.


For sure, it’s quieter up North.

So quiet in some places, you feel like you’re in the world time forgot.

And for sure, there is less ‘stress’ in the air.

(Except, my kid called me the first day to tell me some bomb exploded in Megiddo, just up the road from where we were staying….)

We brought the madness with us….

That’s what I thought to myself, initially.

Then, I thought to myself: we can’t run away from the world, not even when it’s so crazy, stressful and anger-inducing as it currently is.

Not even in places like Tiberius, which is still playing mostly songs from the 1980s (including Samantha Fox…. Fellow Brits out there of a certain age will appreciate that pretty much the last thing she was known for was her singing.)


On the way down, we stopped in Zichron Yaakov, to visit the ‘First Aliyah Museum’.

I learnt some new stuff there, not least that ‘the Baron’s men’ were terrorising ‘the settlers’, trying to control every tiny thing about their life, and effectively forcing them into serfdom while ‘the Baron’s men’ effectively forced them sell all their land and holdings – they they literally sweat blood for – to ‘the Baron’.

It struck me how little has really changed.


Something else I learned in Zichron Yaakov, in one of the really beautiful gift shops there, is that most ordinary people here are totally sick and tired of all this pointless politics going on all the time.

The nice secular woman who owned the shop told us that even on Purim, instead of getting the community in the mood for Purim by playing happy music etc, the council basically organised demonstrations against the government on the street instead.

She told us there were kids dressed in red on all the street corners, chanting slogans.

Why red?

I still don’t know.

(Communist May Day throwbacks? Edom? Frankist color coding? Something else?)

But long story short, she said it killed the whole atmosphere dead, and there are no tourists buying anything at the moment, because all the energy is going into yelling ‘busha’ like brainwashed zombies…


Something else I learnt from that museum in Zichron Yaakov:

Eretz Yisrael truly is acquired with suffering.

It’s always been that way.

And it’s still that way today.

Just back then, people were living in huts, dying of malaria and starving to death.

And today… we’re agonising over which luxury development to live in and how big the mortgage is going to be.


Of course, there are other forms of ‘suffering’ going on here, too.

When good Jews are killed by government-sponsored terrorists, that really hurts.

But, at least we are acquiring Eretz Yisrael with that suffering.

I speak to my family abroad, and I’m hearing from both the US and the UK that everyone is suffering a lot right now, in those countries too.

And for what, exactly?


So, it was good to take a break from psycho commentators, crazy news, worries about the future that may or may not be based in reality, and just that general feeling of ‘overwhelm’.

But mostly, because that break taught me just how good my day to day life actually is.

And that once again, the real treasure we’re looking for – the real meaning, the real joy – is to be found in our own back yards.

Last week, a friend of mine ended up in the hospital, after her teenage son tried to jump something and basically fell and gave himself a concussion.

(As discussed elsewhere, the teenage brain literally is still developing, physically, until the age of 20. That’s a big part of the reason why they can sometimes be SOOOO dumb. As the parent of teens, understanding this really helped me to judge my kids favorably, and to keep way more patience with their retarded antics than otherwise. But it’s still hard.)


She was in the ward where they deal with concussions, and there she met a guy who also had a concussion.

This is what he told her:


He’d been playing one of the ‘virtual reality’ computer games, with the ‘virtual reality’ goggles, and the whole, immersive-body experience.

He’d been fighting ‘the enemy’ in hand-to-hand combat in the game, when ‘the enemy’ gave him a knockout punch to the head.

This guy’s brain experienced that virtual reality ‘punch’ as reality, and he ended up with an actual concussion for four days.


My friend took his number, so I could verify the story first-hand, but I trust her that she’s not making it up.

What can we learn from this?

So very much!

Not least, that what we see, what we believe, what we tell ourselves, what we experience as ‘reality’ – that’s what actually makes our reality!

That’s why the power of imagination can be so very dangerous.

That’s why when we spend so much time watching spiritually-corrupt movies and TV shows; or immersing ourselves in ‘fear porn’ (aka the news); or filling our eyeballs and our souls with ‘alt propaganda’ telling us the holocaust never happened, or the Jewish people are just ‘Khazarians’ who were invented in the middle ages….

That’s the awful reality we start to live, mamash.

The brain can’t differentiate between ‘reality’ and ‘virtual reality’, to the point where a person can get a real concussion from a virtual knock-out punch.


So, guard your eyes, and your ears and your mind!

Be very careful, with what you are watching and listening to and believing in.

And really, really, start to do some regular hitbodedut every single day, even for five minutes, because in a world where even your own eyes can and do decieve you, the only way to know what is really ‘true’ is to have a strong soul connection to God.

And then, your soul will be whispering in your ear, whenever something ‘looks fantastic’, but just doesn’t feel quite right, or true.


One more thing:

There’s a lot of AI image making software now exploding across the internet.

Two of the most popular are:



Dall-E 2

The first one is more ‘fantasy’ and ‘spiritual mysticism’ – so probably, the more dangerous of the two, if it’s used in the wrong way.

And the second one puts together very realistic looking ‘photo images’ of stuff that is totally made up.

Like this:

(Start around the 5 minute mark:)


I’m still mulling over all the ‘mud flood’ stuff, to be honest.

I’m wondering how many of those pictures of ‘mud flood cities’ might just be Dall-E 2 inspired fakes.

I’m not saying they are, I’m just pondering, because it’s strange that our Jewish tradition doesn’t speak of these massive mud floods, at all, and even with all the censorship and fakers at the top of the tree, surely something would have got through, about something this big?


BH, I will put a post together about ‘fallen angels’ – based on real, authentic Jewish sources, not Roman-xtian-satanic propaganda – some time next week.

But in the meantime:

Guard your mind!

And especially, guard your eyes!

And especially, stop listening to anything that’s telling you holocausts never happened, or that ‘evil Joos’ are behind everything that is going on.

For sure, there’s some evil Joos in the mix – we’ve been discussing that for a while here, on the blog.

But the majority of the Jewish people don’t fall into that category, even if they are confused and corrupted by our Erev Rav, Sabbatean-Frankist leaders.

They just want us to believe their ‘virtual reality’ so we start hating ourselves, and start turning on each other as ‘the problem’.

We aren’t the problem.

But, we really are a massive part of the solution.

And that starts with continuing to do this birur between ‘fantasy’ and reality – and connecting strongly back to our souls.

Because God’s seal is truth.

And that truth will guide us, once we finally uncover it within.

Well, the day after Purim here in Jerusalem.

The sun is shining, the birds are tweeting, my neighbours are arguing over parking spaces…. And I am starting to feel more and more, that the best way of dealing with all the fake news, media manipulation and ‘doom and gloom’ prophecies is to totally switch it off.

God sends all the information we really need to know, when we really need to know it.

And seeing how even well-intentioned people jump on disinformation bandwagons and carry on ‘the charade’, from a place of ‘high ideals’, has kind of turned me off engaging with anything from anyone, at this point.


Maybe that’s part of the plan, I don’t know.

Increasingly, I also don’t care so much, because I’m understanding more and more that what you and I believe, is what dictates our reality.

I don’t believe humanity is totally doomed, nor that aliens are waiting in the wings to take over.

It’s very possible that fallen angels, as described in our authentic Jewish tradition, are behind most of what is going on right now.

Regardless – all this is still just a pantomime put on by the forces of evil, to try to obscure the fact that God is actually running the world, and our main effort to fix our problems has to start and end with this understanding.


I can’t be bothered arguing about ‘left and right’ with people anymore, when it’s so obvious they are both controlled by the same evil.

I can’t be bothered responding to people telling me how ‘lefties are hounding Netanyahu’, or how ‘Democrats stole elections’ in the USA.

When God gives me a birur to do, I will still try to do it, especially when it comes to issues that impact me and my life directly, like Huwara, or historical deceptions that the whole world of lies has been built on, particularly about Yoshki and xtianity, etc.

But the real birur here is what is going on in our hearts and minds.

When we are more honest with ourselves, about our own bad middot, lack of emuna and ‘blind spots’, then we’ll be able to see ‘the truth’ around us as well, however that actually looks.


And that’s the whole point of what is really going on now.


Life is good!

Life is still so good!

Yes, ‘bad things’ are still happening all over the place, like they always have been from the very beginning of the world, when Adam and Eve sinned and the whole world plunged down into the abyss.

At the same time…. there is no despair in the world.

Everything can be fixed, everything can be rectified.

That is probably the most important of Rebbe Nachman’s teachings, along with Azamra and the importance of doing our best to be happy with however God is directing our lives.



Today, I am spending way less time on my computer.

And I’m going to go to Kever Rachel, and then the zoo.


Because life is still so good!

And the more I leave all the news sites, Substacks, Telegram channels and alt-blogs alone, the more I can actually feel that.

Well, I’m continuing to make some real progress on figuring this whole mess out, BH.

Let’s sum up a few things, before we dive into the latest episode of figuring out how the Romans created ‘xtianity’ as a fusion of their Roman PanHellenism, and beliefs that a ‘man could become a god’, and Judaism – with some help from Herodian fake-Jewish Edomites.

Here’s what you need to know, going forward:

  1. There were many, many different people called ‘Jesus’ in all the Roman sponsored propaganda-histories written by their acolytes, including all the works of Josephus, and also the New Testatment.
  2. ‘Jesus’ was the mocking term the Romans used to describe every Jewish ‘almost Moshiach’, or ‘savior’ (Yeshua, in the Hebrew.)
  3. At the same time, the Talmud and our Sages referred to every potential destroyer of the Jewish faith who was enticing Jews into idolatry as Yeshu – the initial letters of the phrase ‘yemach sh‘mo’ – may his name be erased.
  4. So, the Romans punned on ‘Yeshu’, turned it into ‘Yeshua’ – ‘the savior’ – and then used the Greek version of that name in their fake propaganda-histories to describe every leading Jewish rebel who tried to shake off the yoke of Rome.
  5. Most of these ‘Jewish rebels’ seem to have descended from the house of the Hasmoneans, and to have been Kohanim.
  6. Which could explain why the Dead Sea Scrolls community at Qumran left writings indicating their belief the ‘Moshiach’ would come from the ‘House of Aaron’.
  7. The Romans, and their Herodian-Edomite helpers, who invented ‘xtianity’ basically rewrote Jewish history when they destroyed the Second Temple. They appropriated the identities of all these Hasmonean ‘wannabe Moshiachs’ – the ‘Yeshuas’ – and then wrote a story designed to both confuse and mislead the Jews into accepting the new Roman fusion-religion of ‘xtianity’, and also to demonise the Jews forever more, as the ‘krist killers’.


To be clear, there is NO ‘historic Jesus Krist’.

What there is, are a ton of historic Jewish rebels against Roman rule, all mockingly called ‘Yeshua’ = ‘the savior’.

Most, if not all, of these ‘Yeshuas’ came from the Hasmonean line.

Rome went all out to try and exterminate every last one of them, and my working theory at this point, is that some of the Hasmoneans did end up escaping to Wales, at some point in the story, probably around the rule of the Emperor Tiberius. That part still needs more work to pin down properly.

At the same time, there WERE also Jewish heretics and evildoers, referred to as ‘Yeshus’ by our Sages, including the pupil of Yehoshua ben Perachia who went off the derech and started encouraging others to worship idols.

I’m currently of the view that these ‘Yeshus’ may well also have been Hasmoneans, and were almost certainly the Sadducee ‘Tzadukim and Boethesian’ High Priests.

More on that another time.


OK, so now, let’s move forward and put more detailed flesh on these basic bones.

In this post, we’re going to return to ‘Alexander Lysimachus the Alabarch of Alexandria’.

He’s the brother of Philo, the Jewish-Alexandrian philosophy who is credited with coming up with the basic tenets of ‘christianity’, which the Romans then used to craft their new ‘fusion’ religion.

In THIS post, we learned of his links to Philo, and also that he had at least two sons.

One of them, ‘Tiberius Julius Alexander’ was the 2nd in command for Titus, during the destruction of the Second Temple.

Another, ‘Marcus Julius Alexander’ is meant to have married Julia Berenike, great-grand-daughter of Herod the Great, sister of the last ‘King of Judea, Herod Agrippa II’ – and Titus’ mistress.


Nice little club they have going there!

So, here’s the thing: while we are meant to believe that this ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ and his sons materialised out of nowhere, I think I’ve managed to pin down who they really were.

And you’ll be shocked – SHOCKED!!! – to hear that yes, they are also all direct descendants of Herod the Great, that Edomite destroyer of the Jews.

Let’s show you how.


This lengthy snippet comes from HERE –  a work by Katherine Evans called: Alexander the Alabarch: Roman and Jew.

Alexander is known to us directly only through 5 references in Josephus and indirectly through Philo’s On Animals.

Although Josephus’ reliability is always at issue, I believe that here he was probably accurate because Josephus almost certainly had met a number of Alexander’s relatives if not the alabarch himself and because the War and Antiquities were dedicated to the Emperors Vespasian and Titus who were close friends with Alexander’s son Tiberius Alexander.

In War 5.205 it is learned that Alexander had the nine gates of the Temple in Jerusalem overlaid with massive plates of silver and gold, a gift which one can assume would have placed him on very good terms with the Temple High Priest among others.

This is but one of a number of indications of Alexander’s great wealth. In around 35 C.E. [King Herod] Agrippa [I] sailed to Alexandria and begged Alexander for a loan of 200,000 drachmas (Antiquities 18.159-160).


[King Herod] Agrippa and Alexander were probably previously acquainted particularly since both men were friends of Claudius before he became Emperor.

Josephus tells us that Alexander was “old friends” with Claudius which would suggest that they were roughly contemporary in age or born around 10 B.C.E. Since there is no evidence that Claudius ever journeyed to Egypt, Alexander probably spent time in Rome. It is plausible that he was educated there and grew up “in the circle of Claudius” as Josephus reports Agrippa did.

Alexander also became an epitropos for the mother of Claudius, Antonia Drusus [the daughter of Mark Antony], which I suggest meant that Alexander became the procurator of Antonia’s extensive land estates in Egypt.

At some point Alexander was appointed “alabarch” which appears to have been a Roman magistry responsible for tax assessment.


The key things to understand are that ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ was working very tightly with the Roman Imperial family to tax and control the Jews, amongst others.

Antonia Drusus (aka ‘Antonia Minor’) was the daughter of the previous Triumvir Mark Antony (of ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ fame.)

Mark Antony married the Emperor Augustus’ sister, and ‘Antonia Minor’ was the result. She was connected at the highest levels of Roman society, and all the ‘child hostages’ from places like the Royal Family of Judea were given to her to brainwash into being obedient little puppet-rulers for the Romans, when they grew up.

(There is nothing new under the sun.)


OK, so now, let’s show you who this ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ – and his brother Philo – really were.

In all this work, some of the leading clues have come from the fact that these people practised ‘endogamy’, i.e. they just kept on marrying each other, to keep the power and the money in the family.

So, once I knew that ‘Julia Berenike’ the daughter of that same King Herod Agrippa I, mentioned above, who was good friends with the Emperor Claudius, married the Alabarch’s son, I already assumed there must be some close blood relationship there.

Just, what was it?


So, I was going over all this stuff with Herod’s family again (and again and again…) waiting for some penny to drop, when I took a closer look at THIS guy:


He’s definitely the grandson of ‘Herod the Great’.

He’s meant to also be descended from the Hasmoneans, via ‘Mariamne I the Hasmonean Princess’ who we are told by Josephus married Herod and gave him four children….

Except, the Talmud, in Bava Batra 3B, says that’s a crock, and that ‘Mariamne Hasmonean’ killed herself, rather than marry Herod.

Here’s a snippet:

Herod was originally a slave in the house of the Hasmoneans. He had set his eyes on a certain young girl from that illustrious family.

One day, he heard a Heavenly voice that said: ‘Any slave that revolts now will succeed’ in his rebellion. Herod thereupon rose and killed all of his masters, exterminating the house of the Hasmoneans, but he spared the life of that maiden in order to marry her.

The girl, however, thwarted his plan:

When that maiden saw that Herod wanted to marry her, she ascended to the roof and raised her voice, saying: ‘Whoever comes in future years and says I am descended from the house of the Hasmoneans’ is in truth a slave.

For no-one remains from [the Hasmonean family] save this maiden, and this maiden is hurling herself from the roof to the ground.

After completing her declaration, she leaped from the roof to her death.


Herod is supposed to have had 10 wives (that we know about…).

One of them definitely WAS a ‘Mariamne’ who descended from a family of Kohanim – her father was ‘Simon ben Boethus’.

He was one of the hellenised Kohanim ‘serving’ in the temple of Alexandria, from the house of Tzaddok / Beit Chonyo, who Herod imported in as Kohen Gadol in Jerusalem, to try and shore up his reign in Judea.

Remember, the Hasmoneans also descended from ‘Beit Chonyo’, but the branch who initially fought against their hellenising relatives.


Anyway, this is what we learn about ‘Gaius Julius Alexander’, Herod’s grandson, whoever his grandmother might have actually been.

(From HERE🙂

Herod died in 4 BC in Jericho.

After the death of Herod, Alexander and his brother decided to leave Jerusalem and to live with their mother and her family in the Cappadocian Royal Court.

After Alexander and his brother arrived in Cappadocia, they disavowed their Jewish descent, deserted their Jewish religion and embraced their Greek descent, including the religion. However the family connections to the Herodian Dynasty weren’t wholly broken.

After Alexander and his brother disavowed their Jewish descent, they were considered among fellow Jews as gentiles. There is a possibility that his maternal grandfather sent Alexander to be educated in Rome.

Little is known of the adult life of Alexander.

He appeared to an administrator for the extensive land estates in Egypt that were owned by the Imperial family of Rome and he was a wealthy landowner, owing two estates in the Egyptian town of Euhemeria.

Alexander married an unnamed noblewoman that flourished in the reigns of the first two Roman Emperors Augustus and Tiberius. His wife bore him a son called Tigranes. Alexander named his son in honor of his brother.

Tigranes later served as a Roman Client King of Armenia under the reign of Roman Emperor Nero (reigned 54-68). Roman Empress Livia Drusilla and her daughter-in-law Antonia Minor were mentioned in Alexander’s will.


He totally overlaps with ‘Alexander the Alabarch’, in so many ways.

Here’s the thing: while the Sages and authentic Judaism teach that Jewish descent is matrilineal, the hellenised Sadducee-Kohanim held that Jewish descent could also be patrilineal.

‘Gaius Julius Alexander’s’ mother wasn’t Jewish. She was ‘Glaphyra of Cappodocia’.

Glaphya also married King Juba II of Mauretania – whose first wife was Cleopatra Selene, the daughter of that same Mark Antony and Cleopatra, mentioned above.

And then, she divorced Juba II to marry another one of Herod’s sons, Herod Archelaus (his mother was Malthace the Samaritan).


So, ‘Gaius Julius Alexander’, despite his Kohen bloodline and links to ‘Beit Chonyo / Bnei Tzaddok’, wasn’t even a Jew.

And he was administering territory for the Roman Imperial Family in Egypt, and had close links to ‘Antonia Minor’, exactly the same way as ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ did, during the same period of time.



Now, here’s where things get even  more interesting.

In one version of history, ‘Gaius Julius Alexander’ has two siblings: an unknown sister, and a brother ‘Tigranes V’, who gets parachuted in by Rome as the King of Armenia, between 6-12 CE.

While in another version of history, ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ has two siblings, an unknown brother ‘Julius Lysimachus’ – and the inventor of xtianity, Philo.

I am still chewing all this over, but you should know that it’s directly connected to Queen Helena of Adiabene.

Forty years later, ‘Tigranes VI’, the son of this same ‘Gaius Julius Alexander’, grandson of Herod, also gets parachuted into Armenia as another Roman puppet king – and invades the kingdom of Adiabene, in 61 CE.

Queen Helena of Adiabene is a famous convert to Judaism, who is buried here in Jerusalem.

But it could be, she ‘converted to Judaism’ because she actually married a Herodian fake-Jewish Judean prince with tight connections to the Sadducee-High Priests….

More on that another time.


So, let’s just sum this stuff up, and then we’ll finish here for today.

‘Alexander Lysimachus the Alabarch’, the guy with very tight links to the Roman Imperial Royal Family, and whose son, Tiberius, helped to destroy the Second Temple as Titus’ second in command was a Herodian prince, and grandson of Herod the Great.

His mother definitely wasn’t Jewish – so neither was he, according to the Sages.

But, according to the apikorus Sadducees, he was ‘Jewish enough’, because his father, Alexander III, is said to have been the son of ‘Mariamne Hasmonean’.

(But the Talmud suggests that didn’t happen, so either Alexander III is the son of a different Mariamne – or maybe, just another one of Herod’s non-Jewish wives….)

That also means that ‘Philo’ the creator of the philosophy that underpins xtianity was a grandson of Herod the Great, too.

Is Philo one-and-the-same as ‘Tigranes V’, the Roman puppet King of Armenia, or is that another brother of ‘Alexander the Alabarch;, sibling number 3?

At this stage, it’s hard to know.


This snippet comes from the Jewish Encyclopaedia site HERE:

Philo was himself descended from the Alabarch family (“Ant.” xviii. 8, § 1), and was either the brother or the nephew of Alexander Lysimachus.


What we DO know is that this family took a massive role in destroying the Second Temple, persecuting the Hasmonean dynasty, and had a very big motive for helping Rome to create a ‘synthesize’ of Roman Panhellenism and Judaism, to try to subvert all the Jewish messianic unrest that led to Judea rebelling again and again and again against the Roman empire.


Last thing for now.

There’s another ‘proto-xtian’ in the mix here, namely ‘Saulos Thaddeus Alexander Herod‘, who was another grandson of Herod the Great, and cousin, or second cousin, to ‘Alexander the Alabarch’.


Scholar Robert Eisenman, one of the people who is now collaborating with Joseph Atwill, believes that there is a good case to make that this ‘Saulos Thaddeus Alexander Herod’ is actually the Apostle Paul:

Snippet from HERE:

Biblical scholar Robert Eisenman has suggested that Saulos might have been the same person as Saint Paul the Apostle.

In this reconstruction, Paul’s unnamed nephew who warns him of a plot to kill him in the barracks (Acts 23:16) was Julius Archelaus, son of Paul’s supposed sister Cypros and her husband Temple Treasurer Alexas Helcias (James the Brother of Jesus; The New Testament Code; Wikipedia)

A further source used to sustain this potential relationship is Paul’s words in Romans 16.11 “Greet Herodion, my kinsman.”


And the final thing to toss into the mix here, is that there is a persistent idea that ‘Josephus’ and ‘St Paul’ are also the same person.

Again, at this stage, that seems very possible.

Read THIS, for more of the discussions going on around that idea.


So much to unpick still!

But, we’re getting closer and closer to figuring this out, and to understanding that ‘Edom’ was not only the ancestor of the Romans, he was also the ancestor of the Edomite ‘Herod the Great’, and all his horrible descendents, who gave us the scourge of ‘xtianity-induced-anti-semitism’ for the last 2,000 years.

But hopefully, this massive lie is about to fall big time.

And in the meantime, TBC.


PS: The picture at the top is what’s left of Herod’s palace in Caesaria – the town he built in honor of his Roman patron, Caesar Augustus.

Caesaria was hit by one massive earthquake, one freak storm, after another, some 1800 years ago.

That was a good start!

But now we need some earthquakes to come and finish the job, BH.

I spent Shabbat reading a book called ‘Caesar’s Messiah’.

It was recommended in the comments a couple of weeks’ back, when we were starting to figure out more about all the lies being told about Yoshki, and the Hasmonean Judean Royal Family.

I am still figuring out a bunch of stuff, but the information in this book is very interesting, so I thought I’d sum it up for you in the meantime.

(You can also read THIS, for a precis.)


The basic idea is this:

Rome under the Emperor Titus – the guy who burnt down the Second Temple, with some help from Philo’s nephew, Tiberius Julius Alexander – oversaw the writing of:

The Jewish Wars and Antiquities of the Jews


The four Gospels of the New Testament.

Author Joseph Atwill – who used to be a believing xtian, befoire he figured all this stuff out – basically shows convincingly how ‘The Jewish Wars’ and the 4 Gospels were designed to cover the same stories using different names and details, which clearly demonstrate that Titus ‘invented Christianity’ as a way of defusing the militant Messianic Judaism that was leading to many costly wars between Rome and the Jews.

And in the process, this invented Roman religion was deliberately designed to:

a) Mock the Jewish rebels, and their Messianic beliefs, and belief in the resurrection of the dead.

b) Deliberately distort Jewish history, so ‘Roman xtianity’ could be grafted into Judaism.

c) Set up a satire, where the ‘Messiah’ being described in ‘Roman xtianity’ was none other than the Emperor Titus himself.

d) Replace authentic Torah Judaism, with a Roman ersatz version – that praised meek tax payers and people who ‘turned the other cheek’.


This all sounds incredible, but author Joseph Atwill makes quite a convincing case, in many ways.

I personally believe there is still more to this story, but the basic ideas I learnt that ring true are these:

  • The writers of ‘Josephus’ and the 4 Gospels were the same small group of people, all closely associated with the Flavian Imperial family, ‘Alexander the Alabarch’ and his brother Philo, and the Herodian Royal family.
  • These writers used the same names for a bunch of different ‘characters’ in their stories, like this:
  • Every rebellious Jewish woman was called a ‘Mary’.
  • Every ‘Moshiach-wannabe’ was called ‘Jesus’ (the Greek version of ‘Yeshua’, or ‘savior’.)
  • At least two of the main xtian apostles, John and Simon, are actually caricatures of two of the main leaders of the Jewish rebellion against Rome, John of Gischala and Simon bar Giora.
  • This ‘John of Gischala’ had his life spared by Titus, and basically became a turncoat, churning out ‘xtian’ propaganda for Titus as the writer of the ‘Gospel of John’.
  • There WERE a number of real ‘Moshiach wannabes’ fighting the Romans, members of the Hasmonean dynasty.
  • At least one of these ‘Moshiach wannabes’ was named Eliezer – and ‘Eliezer’ (or its diminutive ‘Lazarus’) seems to have been used as another codeword in both Josephus and the Gospels, to describe the real story of this Hasmonean ‘Moshiach’ who was captured by the Romans, had his limbs hacked off (or ‘pruned’) and was then returned to his followers, to die.


This comes from Atwill’s book:

Eleazar – Maccabean Hebrew name that means “whom God aids”‘. It is translated in Greek as “Lazarus”.

Eleazar was a member of the messianic dynasty [i.e. Hasmoneans] that was captured by the Romans during the siege of Jerusalem; he was threatened with crucifixion and had his limbs ‘pruned’.

He was then given back to his relatives – and after he died from his injuries they ate him. His torture and death and satirised when the figure of the cannibal Mary [in Josephus’ description of the siege of Jerusalem] eats her son as a symbolic Passover lamb, and when the figure of Lazarus in the Gospels is raised from the tomb, whereupon Mary ‘makes him a supper.”


  • The names in the New Testament and Josephus are nearly all from the Hasmonean dynasty, and are repeated so excessively, in order to create some deliberate confusion about how the ‘Roman moshiach’ and religion fit into the actual authentic Jewish history.
  • Roman xtianity set up Titus as the ‘Son of God’ to be worshipped – but just changed his name to ‘Jesus’, the Roman’s mocking catch-all name for all the Jewish ‘saviors’.
  • Titus ‘deified’ his father, the Emperor Vespasian, thus making himself ‘the Son of [a] god’, his dad ‘the god’, and his brother, Domitian, the ‘Holy Spirit’. This is the xtian trinity – all thoroughly evil human beings, and the very opposite of God and goodness.


There’s a lot more to say about all this, but here are my initial thoughts about this.

I am still trying to figure out the real identity of ‘Josephus’, and I have a couple more books coming that will hopefully help me with that endeavor.

Right now, my top candidate for ‘Josephus’ is… Philo.

He’s the brother of Alexander the Alabarch, whose sons marry into the Herodian Royal Family, and help Titus destroy Jerusalem. And Philo had the library in Alexandria, and is known to have developed the bare bones of ‘christology’, regardless of this additional information linking Titus as the real ‘son of [a] god’ xtianity was designed to get people to worship.

But Josephus could also be one-and-the-same as ‘the Apostle Paul’, who was actually another member of the Herodian royal family, called Saul Thaddeus.


Separately, I am also now thinking that the prototype for the Hasmonean ‘moshiach’ called Eliezer – but mockingly renamed ‘Jesus’, like all the moshiach-figures in Josephus / the gospels – might be R’ Eliezer HaGadol, aka Eliezer ben Hyrcanus.

I have a few reasons for thinking this.

Firstly, the name ‘Hyrcanus’ was another recurring Hasmonean name, another version of Yochanan / Onias, as we’ve seen previously.

And ‘Eliezer’ is another recurring Hasmonean name.

And ‘Eliezer HaGadol’ was known to be a Kohen. (Korban Ha’eidah to the Jerusalem Talmud, Sotah 3:4).

And also known to come from a very wealthy family, but one that was at odds with the ‘Pharisees’, or Rabbinical Judaism that was at odds with the Sadducee High Priests that were monopolising the High Priesthood – and also very closely connected to both the Hasmonean Royal Family, and Herod, not least, via Herod’s marriage to Mariamne II, the daughter of Simon Boethus the Sadduccee High Priest.

Eliezer HaGadol is originally disinherited by his wealthy father Hyrcanus, who changes his mind when he hears his son teaching Torah.

Eliezer HaGadol was also the teacher of Rabbi Akiva, who was ‘pro’ armed rebellion against the Romans, which is why he supported Simon bar Kochba.

Rabbi Akiva has another teacher, called ‘Nachum Ish Gamzu’ – who coincidentally, also has his limbs chopped off, like like the ‘Eliezer’ who was captured by the Romans and ‘pruned’.

And Eliezer HaGadol lived at the time of the destruction of the Second Temple. (He is one of the students of R Yochanan ben Zakkai, who carried his teacher out of Jerusalem in a coffin, and into Vespasian’s camp, to save him from the siege.)

And it’s known that he was ‘excommunicated’ for disagreeing over whether a clay oven could be koshered – but this was really a metaphor for Rome’s occupation of Judea, and Eliezer HaGadol was arguing for armed rebellion. (See Bava Metzia, 59b).


The Sages disagreed, excommunicated R’ Eliezer HaGadol – and at the end of his life, this is what R’ Eliezer HaGadol says (from Sanhedrin 68a):

Rabbi Eliezer said to them: Why have you come? They said to him: We have come to study Torah, as they did not want to say that they came to visit him due to his illness. Rabbi Eliezer said to them: And why have you not come until now? They said to him: We did not have spare time.
Rabbi Eliezer said to them: I would be surprised if these Sages die their own death, i.e., a natural death. Rather, they will be tortured to death by the Romans. Rabbi Akiva said to him: How will my death come about? Rabbi Eliezer said to him: Your death will be worse than theirs, as you were my primary student and you did not come to study.
Remember, elsewhere we are told that Rabbi Akiva is the main student of Nachum Ish Gamzu – who has all his limbs chopped off, paralleling what occurs to ‘Eliezer the Jewish moshiach-claimant’ who inspires a rebellion against the Romans, and contains the historical ‘kernel of truth’ the Romans built their fake religion of ‘xtianity’ around.
It’s at least possible that ‘Nachum Ish Gamzu’ and ‘R’ Eliezer HaGadol’ are the same person, just the details were disguised, because the Sages were facing terrible persecution from the Roman authorities, who were trying to get their new religion that encouraged tax-paying meekness and acceptance of slavery to take hold amongst the Jews.

That’s why so many things had to be alluded to, written in code, hinted at, in the Gemara.

And that’s also why the ‘Church of Rome’ has been hell-bent on destroying the Gemara, the last couple of millenia. Because it contains a lot of clues about the true history of what was happening around the time Rome created ‘Jesus’ and xtianity.


I will stop here for now, but this is definitely something I will be returning to.

The Hasmonean dynasty didn’t stop rebelling against Rome and its puppet royals.

Another Hasmonean King, Antigonus Matthias II, also rebelled against Rome during the time of Mark Antony and Cleopatra.

Mark Antony had him crucified… and beheaded.

And then, gave the rulership of Judea over to ‘Herod the Great’.

But the rebellions continued.

Just, they were doomed to failure, because all these ‘wannabe Moshiach Hasmoneans’ were Kohanim, not from the House of David.


BTW, a scroll was found in the Qumran community which described how they believed the Moshiach could and would come ‘from the House of Aaron’ – i.e., he would be a Kohen.

Here’s another snippet from ‘Caesar’s Messiah’:

“[F]ound among the Dead Sea Scrolls were two works, the Damascus Document and Community Rule, both of which describe a sect that looked forward to the appearance of the Messiah. In both works, this coming Messiah is described as a member of the family of Aaron:

This is the exact statement of the statutes in which (they shall walk until the coming of the Messia) of Aaron and Israel who will pardon their iniquity. [Damascus Document XIV].

They shall depart from none of the counsels of the Law…until there shall come the Prophet and the Messiahs of Aaron and Israel…[Community Rule VIII].”

So, long story short, in this upside-down world we live in, Rome stole the idea of the ‘Jewish Moshiach’ to stop all these Jewish rebellions.

They got ‘Josephus-Philo’ to write parallel fake histories, called the War of the Jews and the 4 Gospels, to mock authentic Judaism, parody the suffering and beliefs of the believing Jews who were fighting against them – and set up a ‘replacement religion and philosophy’ that would neutralise militant Jewish messianism, whilst also sowing the seeds of anti-semitism for the next 2,000 years….

There is more to this story, not least, that I think that survivors from the Hasmonean family did end up in South Wales….

But we’ll cover that off another time, BH.


In the meantime, go back and read these:





Christianity is a lie – an awful, demonic lie, deliberately designed to pull people away from believing in God.

When this domino falls – as it must – the world of lies that was built on it by the evil Romans finally falls with it.

I have a feeling, that time is inching ever closer.


It’s been a very tough week for me, emotionally.

Every day, since that horrible terror attack on Sunday in Huwara, I’ve been feeling kind of shakey, angry, emotional, weepy….

And then, there’s all the crazy stuff going on with ‘politics’, with these horrible people in the Knesset – all of them! – just busy manipulating the public anyway they can, to try to get some political mileage and turn us against each other.

When, o when, are we going to realise that these people, and their police, and their military, and their judiciary, and their media – none of them work for us.

Not even the ‘frum’ ones.


I have to admit to having a few patches of despair this week.

I despaired when I saw how quickly all the hoo-ha about the ‘Huwara pogrom’ overshadowed the real situation on the ground here, that is basically that our government and our military isn’t protecting civilians in any way, and that’s been going on for a very long time.

(Reminder, apart from the year of Bennett and Lapid, Netanyahu, ‘Mr Right Wing’, has been PM here for well over a decade…)

And then, I despaired a bit again, when I saw how quickly the media pulled the same trick with Sara Netanyahu’s totally staged ‘hairdresser gate.’

Each time we fail to see through the media’s lies, and the politicians’ ploys to keep stoking things up, and turning us all against each other as part of their ‘divide and conquer’ strategy, we are delaying the real solution to our problems.


Weak people hate others.

Fearful people talk about ‘driving others into the sea’ as a solution.

And that’s not what I want to talk about any more.

I want to talk about how we find real, practical solutions to the violence in this country, at every level.

I don’t want to hear any more pointless ‘Rambo’ talk about ‘wiping villages out’, or bussing Arabs out to… where exactly?

When Moshiach comes, if he tells us to do that as the Prophet of God – fine! Totally fine!

But until then, this is called ‘ethnic cleansing’ and ‘genocide’ – and it’s an option that is simply not on the table, morally, at this point.


So, what’s a ‘real’ solution, to stop the violence in Israel?

Here is what someone who has lived in the Shomron for a very long time, told me this week:

“It’s not the Arabs that murdered those two brothers in Huwara.

It was God.

God decided that they had completed their tikkun, and that He wanted their souls back.

And Baruch Hashem! At least with their deaths, they got to do something for Am Yisrael, they died in the most meaningful way they could, living as Jews on our Holy Land. They died al Kiddush Hashem, just for being Jews.

They could have died in a car accident instead…


“So, we don’t give up. 

That’s what the arabs want, to drive the Jews off the land.

So, we need to continue to live here, and to build here. 

And that’s how we need to respond to what happened in Huwara.”


His words gave me so much chizzuk.

Not least, because they are true.


The news is full of horrible stories of Jews dying weird ways at the moment – fires in Phoenix, fatal car accidents, and let’s not even talk about ‘the shots’.

I have been crying all week for the poor family who lost their two sons in Huwara on Sunday, and for how the whole discussion got hijacked by the scumbags who sit in the Knesset.


I know that houses are being built all over the Shomron – and will continue to be built!

I know that Jewish families here are growing all the time, that they need affordable places to live, and that the Shomron is the next place we are going to see a building boom.

Regardless of Biden, and the other politicians, both here and abroad, and ‘the controllers’ they serve.

Tachlis, a new road is being built right now that will change the whole picture – and that’s where we need to focus our energy, here.

Not on more pointless, incendiary ‘Rambo’ talk, but tachlis, by continuing to build more roads, and strengthening the infrastructure on the ground.

That’s the real answer.


And here’s another real answer, for Jews who currently don’t live in Israel:

Make aliyah.

There is so much tumah going on, so many different ways the nations are spitting in God’s face – He won’t stand for it for much longer.

That’s why the earthquakes are picking up.

It’s not ‘easy’ in Israel, anything but.

But it’s always meaningful, and even just going to the supermarket here, as a Jew in the Holy Land, is infused with more meaning (and of course, way more frustration…) than anything you’ll ever do, Jewishly, in chul.

I have watched so many people suffocate to death, spiritually and emotionally in their comfort zones in chul, because they feel that their comfortable life is essentially totally meaningless.


The last thing I want to say, is that so much good is starting to sprout out of all the very hard things that have gone on this week.

On all sides of the discussion, more and more people are realising that we’re all being manipulated and played as fools, and they are starting to call it out.

Sure, there will always be the challenged, fearful, weak people who scream hate and intolerance, because they are operating from a constricted place of ‘mochin dekatnut’, and they just find it way easier to keep screaming at labels, and ‘hating on command’, than to pause, and really think about what is happening here, and what God is expecting from them.

But, there are tons and tons of people where the scales are falling from their eyes, on all sides, and each one that wakes up, wakes up another 100 in turn.

Like this comment, on the bottom of more of the propaganda from the Israeli government-sponsored YWN site:


This is hands down, the best political analysis I ever saw on the despicable YWN site.

Baruch Hashem, people’s eyes are opening.

Baruch Hashem, more and more of us are seeing the need to move away from ‘hate’ to ‘hope’.

There is no other real choice, here.


May God comfort all the mourners of Zion.

HERE is Dr Netanyahu’s Twitter feed – go and research more about the WHO’s ‘OneHealth’ initiative, you’ll start to see how everything is connected.


And last but not least…. the Geni connection.

She was married to Nathan Netanyahu, our dear PM’s cousin.

As we gear up for ‘Smart Cities’ based on the climate change hoax, and probably shortly before the ‘alien invasion’ hoax, understand that ALL OF THESE PEOPLE are connected to each other -and don’t work for us.

There is no ‘left and right’.

There are good people at the ground level, trying to do the right thing, and trying to be good people, but often with some confused ideas about what that actually means in practise.

And then, there are ‘public officials’ – none of whom work for us, and all of whom work very hard to throw labels around that disguise the fact that our real enemies are not each other.

But the ‘controllers’ who control all our politicians, governments, militaries, media and institutions, and who operate ‘above us’ via organisations like the WHO.


Yesterday in Tel Aviv, a bunch of Na-Nachs showed up at the demonstrations, and got a huge number of the protesters dancing with them, to music praising Hashem.

That’s how we break this ‘spell’, that is pitting brother against brother, Jew against Jew.

Not with more violence and hatred, God forbid.

But with emuna – and dancing.

Exactly how Rebbe Nachman and the Rav said.


PS: It also strikes me that the whole thing with Sara Netanyahu getting ‘mobbed’ at her hairdresser’s in Tel Aviv is 100% a set up.

Everyone knew the traffic in Tel Aviv was going to be crazy yesterday, the day of the demonstration. No-one would arrange a hairdresser’s appointment from out of town on a day like that, especially not the PM’s wife.

They are playing us for fools all the time…

Don’t fall for it!
