Back at the end of January, I decided to start doing 40 days at the Kotel for a chareidi family I’ve become acquainted with, who are seriously messed-up.

While the mother is practically a burka-babe, and the father likes to spout pointless divrei Torah for hours (that no-one can interrupt or disagree with, as that would be disrespectful) most of their kids are off the derech, most of them started smoking aged 12 and one of them preferred to leave home and to sleep on the streets than stay at home.

Coming from my own background, and experiencing what I’ve experienced in life, I found it so very hard to try to judge this family favorably, l’chaf zchut, or to do Azamra on them, as per the instructions of Rebbe Nachman in Likutey Moharan, 1:282.

There, Rabbenu tells us:

Know: one must judge every person favorably. Even if the person is totally wicked, one must search and find in him some bit of good, regarding which he is not wicked. By finding in him this bit of good and judging him favorably, one actually elevates him to the direction of righteousness and is able to bring him to repentance.

====

I really want this family to make teshuva.

The mother spends most of her time with her kids carping about their faults – to their faces – and complaining that they’ve let her down and come out ‘ruined’ because they aren’t frum enough. Never mind all the kids’ good points. Never mind all the effort they are still making to try to respect their parents, and to take all the blame for their own profound emotional issues upon themselves.

Whenever I hear her interactions with her children, I literally start cringing inside. It’s a non-stop fountain of onaat devarim,  poisonous self-righteousness, criticism, lashon hara and arrogance.

But she thinks she’s a tzaddeket.

Why?

Because she dresses SO tzniusly…. And she won’t eat meat anymore because no hechsher is good enough…. And she has no tumahdik computers in the house (which means her husband is really struggling to make parnassa, but hey, let’s not hairsplit here)…. And she won’t listen to any music – at all! – because she can’t be sure it’s coming from a good, kosher place.

Such a tzaddeket.

Did I mention that the family is strongly Litvish, and kind of ‘anti’ Breslov, and especially ‘anti’ Rav Berland?

No?

Ah, my bad, sorry.

====

So, like I said, I’ve been really struggling to do Azamra for these people – and all the hundreds of thousands like them in the chareidi world, who are so anal about all their mitzvoth bein adam l’makom, and so very awful in their mitzvoth bein adam l’chavero.

In the chareidi world as it’s currently configured, your choice is to become a frum robot – and to totally choke down any vestige of individuality or independent thought, and to care more about what the neighbors think than what Hashem really thinks – or to leave.

Thank God for Rebbe Nachman, because when I was faced with this choice, at least I could still find refuge in Breslov.

Or at least, the Breslov of Rav Berland and his students, that welcomed Sephardim, and baal teshuvas, and people like me, who were never going to fit the ‘frum robot’ mold that is de rigeur in mainstream chareidi society.

That strand of Breslov emphasizes the inner world over the outer appearance. It values practice over preaching. And it underscores again, and again, and again that the main work we are down here to do is to work on our own bad middot, and particularly those feelings of arrogance that take us away from Hashem, cut us off from our own neshamas – and hurt so many of the people we should be caring for.

Especially our kids.

====

So, I started that 40 days 3 months ago, and man, it’s been a struggle for so many different reasons.

Today, I got up early to make sure I’d get to the Kotel to complete the 40th day, in the middle of all the ‘Yom Yerushalayim’ (non) celebrations.

When I finally got my 1 minute ‘slot’ to stand at the wall, I got there, kissed it, then started crying.

God, it’s too hard for me. I can’t judge all these horrible, arrogant people favorably. I can’t think good thoughts about people who prefer seeing their own kids sleeping rough on the street than ‘looking bad’ in front of the neighbors.

I can’t stand the hypocrisy, I can’t stand the lack of real connection to Hashem, I can’t stand all the pretend piety, controlling emotional manipulation and holier-than-thou fakeness. 

God. I’ve failed. This 40 days has failed.

I’m doing less Azamra now for these people than when I started….

====

Deep down, I know nothing is for nothing, but that’s how I felt as I left the wall this morning.

====

I came home, checked my emails, and found one from someone called rivkyalbert@gmail.com that said in big, crowing capital letters:

GAME OVER!!!

She’d kindly forwarded all the ‘psak din’ that had just come out against Rabbi Berland from an anti-Breslov beis din located in Bnei Brak, that she’d got straight from the Rav’s main Breslov persecutors.

There’s so much to say about what’s going on here, and after I’ve done more hitbodedut, if God wants me to start clarifying matters – again, for the 500th time – then I will.

But in the meantime, I’m in no rush.

====

You know why?

Because I understand that this is a very important part of the clarification process.

Just like God kept on hardening Pharoah’s heart in Egypt, so he could maintain his free choice, so God is doing the same thing here.

  • After all the mounting evidence of the last few months that the State of Israel has been waging a war specifically against the chareidi community…
  • After all the mounting evidence that the media is totally biased and corrupt, and bought and paid for by vested interests that are ‘anti-God’ in the most profound, evil way…
  • After all the arguments that have occurred recently in the chareidi world between those people who think that praying to God is dangerous, and those who think the opposite…
  • After all the deaths in the chareidi world globally that were attributed to COVID-19…
  • After all the strict lockdowns of specifically chareidi neighborhoods…
  • After all the kabbalists, and big rabbis, and lamed vav Tzaddikim who stated plainly that talking against Rabbi Berland is directly connected to COVID-19….

====

So, the test is being repeated again, to see who has really learned their lesson, and who hasn’t.

====

I’m in no rush to explain what’s going on here.

God has given the chareidi world – and all the other ‘anti Rav Berland’ people – a large quantity of rope, and He’s waiting to see who is going to hang themselves with their own evil speech, and their own bad middot.

Rebbe Nachman told us that before Moshiach would come, heresy would cover the land like a flood, that even ‘big rabbis’ and ‘Torah scholars’ would have heresy dripping out of their pockets, and that most of the leaders of Am Yisrael would be false.

There is a birur going on here.

It’s picking up speed.

It’s becoming more and more obvious that a person’s middot and real connection to Hashem can’t be judged by their appearance, position or title.

But by their actions. And their deeds.

And most of all, whether their homes are full of love and kindness and shalom bayit, and full of children who feel loved and accepted in their homes – or not.

====

The last thing for now, is that it’s no coincidence that as all the lashon hara about Rav Berland ratcheted up a level today, this was the lead story on the JPost website:

====

Walking around today, I see that the masks seem to be making a come back in Jerusalem, after a week where more and more people had stopped wearing them.

Logically, this makes no sense. The weather is still hot. Everything is meant to be ‘opening up’ more and more.

But spiritually, it all fits perfectly.

Thanks to that ‘beis din’ in Bnei Brak, which has unleashed another, awful wave of sinat chinam and lashon hara against Rav Berland,  I reckon we are now about to head into a second wave of COVID madness.

So, go stock up on your water, toilet paper and whatever else you need now.

Because the next stage of the birur has arrived. And if you thought the police brutality against the chareidi communities in Israel and beyond was bad before, I have a feeling that far worse is now to come.

Unless we finally make teshuva, and stop pretending that we’re the biggest tzaddikim on the block.

====

UPDATE:

Strange as it sounds, the majority of the Shuvu Banim community seem to be doing OK with this ‘psak din’ – even feeling relieved and calmly content.

Why?

Because we all knew that ‘beit din’ was anti-Breslov and anti-Rav Berland right from the start, so no-one is shocked at this outcome.

Also, the Rav was hinting for years that something like this had to happen to get us to the next stage of geula.

And also, because it’s a relief that this ‘fig leaf’ has now been provided by Hashem, to unmask all those yucky horrible people who pretend to be religious, and who pretend to be connected to Hashem.

====

Yalla, yucky people!

Write as many horrible comments and posts as you can in the short amount of time that probably remains to you!

It’s all dissing diamonds, it’s all helping the Rav to sweeten the judgments, and it’s helping his community too.

It’s like I told someone close to the Rav who called me before Shabbat feeling quite shaken up and upset:

I’d much rather have all their dissing and carping, and keep my health, shalom bayit and parnassa, than the opposite.

I’m (trying to be…) a sincere student of the Rav, after all, and here’s what he’s been teaching us for years:

====

God will deal with all the yucky people in due course – and it won’t be pretty.

So, hang on my sweet readers! This is a bump in the road, but it’s a necessary part of the geula process to unmask all those pretend frum fakers out there, and show us all what we’re really dealing with.

And it’s already working!

BH, the revealed good is on the way soon, and in the meantime, don’t throw the diamonds back.

They are ‘buying’ us good health, shalom bayit, parnassa, and all the other good stuff that’s really important.

And the truth will out soon enough.

People are already nudging me to write Volume III of One in a Generation….

And I’m almost ready to say yes.

Covid-19 isn’t about fighting a disease. It’s about controlling the world.

Here’s part 3 of James Corbett’s excellent report into Bill Gates – and his other billionaire chums’ – plans to reduce the world population.

Folks, this is eugenics, plain and simple, the same eugenics that powered the Nazis, and lead to the death camps.

And now, it’s being repackaged as ‘public health’ and ‘biometric IDs’ and ‘sterilisation via vaccination’.

====

The first mitzvah Hashem commands humanity is to go forth, and procreate.

The forces of evil in the world – whether it’s Bill Gates and his billionaire buddies, the Bilderbergers, the Freemasons, the Moloch-worshipping satanists, whoever – are fighting Hashem over this most basic mitzvah.

They think there are too many people in the world, and they think it’s a mitzvah to do something about it.

Evil always dresses itself up in pious clothing. Always.

And the ‘clothing’ this evil is dressing itself up in is global digital ID and ‘immunization passports’, which means that if you don’t play ball with the forces of evil, they will find a way to take away your ability to make a living, and to participate in society.

The face masks are just the beginning – the trial balloon, to see how stupid and gullible and easy to manipulate the world’s population really is.

(Shut up, Karen….)

====

This video has some clips of women, so isn’t shmirat eynayim friendly.

But you can get an audio file, and / or read the transcript HERE.

And I highly recommend you do, because it’s important to understand that the decisions that each of make over the next weeks and months are going to tip the balance between geula b’rachamim or the opposite, God forbid.

That’s true in the smaller ways, when it comes to ‘pushing back’ against wearing facemasks, and not buying into all the fearmongering and propaganda that says we have to snitch on our neighbors and ‘social distance’.

All these things have no science behind them, and are just part of a control agenda.

====

And it’s also true in ‘bigger’ ways, namely making some real teshuva, working on our own ‘controlling’ tendencies, and other bad middot, including a lack of emuna, arrogant beliefs that we can never be ‘wrong’ about anything, and fallen fears that keep God out of the picture.

God decides if we live or die, and how.

Nothing and no-one else.

There’s a lot of work to do, people.

So yalla!

Every single one of us can literally make all the difference in the world, with our teshuva and prayers.

Never forget that.

As we move back to ‘semi’ normal life, Hashem is watching closely to see if we learned our lesson.

You could be forgiven for thinking ‘everything is going back to normal’. It certainly looks like that on the surface, but really?

Hashem is giving us a mid-term exam, to see if we learned the lesson of the recent Coronavirus ‘pandemic’, and to make the appropriate teshuva.

Some of that teshuva could include:

  • Making plans ASAP to move to Israel, as soon as the skies open up next week
  • Making some real teshuva on all our arrogance, and tendency to gossip and judge other people harshly
  • Working on our mitzvot bein adam l’havero – and again, let me underline this WITH A BIG RED PEN, that the first and main place to look with this is our kids, and especially our teenagers. More on this in a moment.
  • Making some effort to rectify all the gossip and slander we participated in with regard to Rabbi Berland. More on this in a moment, too.

====

Most of us still have our work cut out for us, and God gave us a taste of what ‘the end of the world’ really looks like, minus all the pie-in-the-sky pretend-Jewish Disney-style cack about magic carpets flying all those good Jews – and their big houses and expensive cars – to Israel as soon as Moshiach shows up.

That’s just not how it’s going to happen.

Things are going to get hairy again, that’s not me talking, it’s Rav Pinto, who has successfully ‘predicted’ a whole bunch of things in recent months, and is now calling for an earthquake followed by a war.

====

====

Rav Kanievsky also said that Corona was a gift from Hashem, to encourage Jews to move to Israel to avoid the war of Gog and Magog that’s about to break out in chutz l’aretz.

But then, we have Rav Berland who said that the wars will only be in 200 years, and who is currently suffering so much in prison, where they are withholding even the basic things like a change of clothing, or medicine, and who even knows what they are *actively* trying to do to harm him.

====

Today, one of the biggest rabbis in Israel made a public statement that the State of Israel ‘has decreed a death sentence against Rabbi Berland.’

He’s calling for a peaceful protest to take place, and for every Jew to take to the streets to protest – totally within the law, of course – until the government releases the Rav. I just got sent this over email:

We will all be gathering at the kever of the Shlah Hakadosh erev rosh chodesh Sivan to pray for the Rav and from there will we show our support with a peaceful demonstration outside Tzalmon prison where the tzaddik is being held.

Schedule:
This Thursday May 21
Buses leaving Jerusalem from Shivtei Yisrael at 3pm (reservation required 0583255645)
Mincha at the Shelah at 6pm
Maariv, Tikun Hakali and show of support at 8:30pm
Buses returning to Jerusalem at 10:00pm

Everyone is welcome to join from anywhere in the country

Cost of buses one person per seat as per the Health Ministries instructions is 100 shekel round trip

We are looking for sponsors to subsidize this cost

“Our strength is only through prayer”

====

I plan on going, BH.

Not on the bus, but up in the car.

Why am I making all that effort, in this horrible heatwave, to take a 5 hour round trip just to stand outside a prison reading the tikkun haklali?

  1. I’m trying to do what that big Rav said, and to protest Rav Berland’s totally unjust and cruel incarceration.
  2. I am providing myself – and my family – with some spiritual ‘life insurance’ for the next birth pang, that is going to show up soon enough, make no mistake about it.

During this whole Coronavirus thing, it was so blindingly obvious to me that the people who were more with Rav Berland, and working on their emuna and emunat tzaddikim, came through this whole episode with way less suffering than everyone else.

For example, I heard stories of how Breslov families living in Uman were all hit by ‘Coronavirus’, but the ones who were close to the Rav all came through with minimum disruption and very mild symptoms, while those families who were ‘anti’ the Rav suffered tremendously, in many different ways.

And I saw that playing out in my own life, too.

====

Midda kneged midda, the people who believed the lying media about Rav Berland also believed the lying media about the fake ‘pandemic’ too, and have gone through – and continue to go through – months of sheer panic and self-inflicted suffocation inside their super-duper KN95 masks.

Whereas those people who were with the Rav had a lot of siyatta de’shmya to see through all the hype and fearmongering, and to continue walking outside as much as possible, and to breathe fresh air as much as possible, and to continue ‘normal life’ as much as possible, baruch Hashem.

From my own life, I have no idea how my husband’s parnassa has held up as well as it has during this ‘pandemic’ except to tell you that I think it’s a present from shemayim for being so vocally behind the Rav.

So, I’m heading off to Tzalmon to demonstrate, because I want that spiritual protection to continue, and to continue to shelter under the Tzaddik’s wings when the next round of ‘interesting’ shows up.

Because make no mistake, it’s already on its way.

====

This ‘normal’ is just a breathing space, a chance for all of us to action all the teshuva we swore we would make when we thought the world was ending imminently.

====

And on that front, I just want to end with one more thought about bein adam l’havero, and how that relates to our teenagers and kids.

The last three months, we’ve all been living in close quarters with our kids and families. God did that on purpose, so we would be forced to look our relationship blind spots straight in the face, and actually try to fix all that stuff that is broken.

You really want to make some serious teshuva?

Ask your teenagers and grown up kids to rate your performance over the last few months, and pay careful attention to what they tell you.

Were you panicking your bottom off about Corona, and forcing everyone to ‘self-isolate’ for 8 solid weeks and to wear facemasks 24/7?

Were you using the whole ‘pandemic’ thing as an excuse to get your kids back under your thumb, and to start controlling their every move again?

Did you empathise when your kids hit the skids and couldn’t get out of bed because they were suffering from social withdrawal, fear and yeoush, or did you just angrily criticise them for being lazy do-nothings?

====

If you really want to take this up a level, you can also ask your spouse to rate your recent performance, too.

Were you more giving, or more taking the last few months?

Did you make an effort for the people in your life, to try to smooth as many of the rough edges of the ‘Corona Pandemic Experience’ as you could, or did you expect other people to make your life easier?

Were you grateful for all the kindnesses Hashem continued to shower on you, during this whole experience?

I could go on (and on and on) but you get the idea.

====

We all have some serious teshuva to make, and God is giving us this quiet time to action it.

I hope we’ll use this time wisely.

Because every small action we make know is going to decide what happens next, both in personal space, and in the world at large.

And the stakes continue to be very large.

How to cope with the madness?

That’s is the real question, isn’t it?

Because while even a few weeks ago, I was still getting a lot of stick for coming up with weird ‘conspiracy theories’ suggesting that Bibi, and the Israeli health ministry are totally in the pocket of billionaire businessmen with evil agendas, today, I found this headline on the Jpost:

====

I had to rub my eyes, and double-check it wasn’t April 1st, or Purim.

But no, there it was in black and white, making the strongest case possible to support the idea that all the stuff we’ve been writing about Bill Gates, and his eugenicist agenda for the world, is actually true.

Here’s a quote from that article:

Cyber experts slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his proposal to “microchip” children who return to schools and kindergartens as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted, Ynet reported on Friday.
While speaking at a press conference on Monday, Netanyahu suggested the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is lifting the coronavirus lockdown. “That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact,” he clarified.
“I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars,” the prime minister said.
====

If you’re anything like me, your head probably started swimming a little, and your eyes lost focus, when you read that.

It’s really hard to deal with all this stuff, honestly, and like one of my perceptive correspondents emailed me a couple of weeks’ ago, there is so much evil out there, that trying to keep on top of it all is like playing ‘whack-a-mole’ with the forces of darkness.
No wonder so many of us are going into denial – honestly, me half included – because what can we really do, about all this anyway?
Go back and read this article from a few weeks ago, to see how all the ducks are being lined up and are now falling into place:

But DON’T DESPAIR!!!!!

Because there is a way we can all get through this in one piece, still, without our children being turned into The Borg.
====

The rest of this post is about coping strategies for dealing with what is now emerging out of the shadows.

Last week, I got sent some stuff about five gee, and how ‘they’ want to use it to start zapping ‘undesirable’ groups of people, then pretend that co-in-ci-den-tal-ly Covid-20 just happens to be only taking out brown people, poor people, religious people with lots of kids and people who are in a trade war with the US and / or Europe.
My heart totally sank when I read that, because it had the ring of truth. I haven’t researched it, or looked into it very much, so I’m not saying that from an ‘informed’ place, the way I usually like to impart information on this blog. It just seemed to me very plausible, and very likely, that this could happen in the near future.

And then, I fell into utter despair for a day, and I couldn’t really do anything much except eat a lot of chocolate.

It was even hard to do hitbodedut, and to talk to God about what is going on, because I just started to feel so utterly powerless, and helpless and small and controlled.

The bad is going to win again… and there is nothing I can do to stop it.

====

Which is when I got in touch with my contact at the Ravberland.com website, to ask them if the Rav had said anything specifically about us all being zapped with weaponised radiation that will take out our body’s ability to absorb oxygen, just like happened in Wuhan, Milan and NYC – all ‘pilot areas’ for the next generation of wifi.

He told me that no, the Rav wasn’t talking about it specifically, although it’s for sure all happening under the surface.

But then, he told me something that changed the whole picture:

The Tzaddik is sweetening everything.

We just need to hold on to the Tzaddik HaDor, and work on our emunat tzaddikim, and work on our own bad middot and the things that are keeping us away from Hashem and the tzaddikim, and all this will come good.

The Tzaddik is sweetening everything, but getting too caught up in the ‘details of evil’ makes the whole process much harder.

====

So, with that crucial piece of info under my belt, I was able to put together a coping strategy that is enabling me to straddle the unhelpful urge to go into total denial about what is transpiring, with the unhelpful urge to go into total panic and meltdown about what is happening.

And this is it:

  1. Stop checking the news sites, unless you are 100% sure that you will not get sucked into all their hype and fearmongering.

People are literally being driven insane by fear of ‘Coronavirus’, and as I’ve written 4 billion times already, Covid-19 is no more scary, infectious or dangerous than any other regular strain of flu. It’s just an illusion, reinforced by the totally corrupt media, and played up by politicians who have been paid millions in share options to get their populations exactly where big Pharma and the billionaire eugenecists want them.

2. At the same time, understand that there IS a big battle being waged here, between the forces of good and the forces of darkness.

Because if you go into denial about that, you won’t make the teshuva God is requiring of all us, to get this problem resolved the sweet way.

Doing nothing is not a good option. But the question is, what DO we actually do about it? What CAN we do about it? Read on.

3. Get behind Rabbi Eliezer Berland 10000000%.

There is no-one else out there on his spiritual level, and with the spiritual capacity he has to take the evil out at its root.

Go and read One in a Generation Volume 1, which spells out his spiritual credentials, and has literally tens of the biggest rabbis of the last couple of generations describing who he really is, in superlative terms.

As we discussed already HERE, the same forces that geared up to convince you that COVID-19 is real, and that microchipping kids is a great idea, were the same forces that geared up to convince you that Rabbi Berland was guilty of crimes that he never committed in a million, billion years.

Twice.

Rabbi Berland is still sitting in an Israeli prison up North, where the authorities are withholding even basic things like food, a change of clothing and medical care.

And who knows, what else they are trying to do to him, God forbid.

====

But the Rav can take them out any time he chooses.

He’s just waiting for more and more of us to wake up, and to really pick the right side.

As soon as we get to critical mass, as soon as we get to the tipping point, the Jewish people will be unstoppable, and geula will go full-throttle – the sweet way.

====

So, if you hate the idea of your kids being microchipped, and of society being totally controlled by the forces of evil, the choice is getting starker and starker by the day.

Bibi et al are totally corrupt and bought and paid for.

We can’t trust any politician, the whole world over.

We can’t trust the medical establishment, that is staffed full of people who sold their souls and their ability to think critically, independently and morally for their medical degrees, status and fat salaries.

We can’t trust the media, which Rav Pinto clearly told us is all lies.

All that’s left to do is to turn inwards, connect to our souls, and really start talking to Hashem about what’s going on.

If we do that, He’ll show us very quickly the truth about Rav Berland.

And once we get behind the Rav 100%, events in our small world will sweeten, even while the ‘bad’ continues to play out a little while longer.

This is the only way to really cope, with what’s coming down the pipe.

UPDATE:

A reader just sent me this article:

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/150081/following-netanyahus-plan-micro-chip-kids-israelis-claiming-have-been-forced-micro-chip-speak-out/

The technology has been in place to do this for decades, already.

Strange world we live in, when it seems that the tin-foil hat people might have been right all along.

UPDATE #2:

Read this article by a real medical doctor (retired, so he can actually tell the truth….) who is explaining that not only do all these face masks NOT HELP AT ALL TO PREVENT ANY SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS, wearing them for any length of time actually leads to a number of potentially serious health issues.

https://www.technocracy.news/blaylock-face-masks-pose-serious-risks-to-the-healthy/

====

That’s because wearing masks reduces the amount of oxygen you are breathing in.

And the body requires oxygen in order to function properly.

And the more ‘hi-spec’ the mask – like the vaunted N-95 – the less oxygen you can actually breathe in, like up to 20% less.

Which is enough to make you pass out.

And even if you don’t slide comatose onto the pavement, 80% of health personnel wearing these masks for any length of times developed headaches, with 60% developing headaches bad enough to require pain relief.

Oh, and chronic lack of oxygen also sky-rockets people’s chances of having heart attacks and strokes, and can seriously impair the immune system, and exacerbate existing medical conditions like cancer.

So please, all those self-righteous, scientifically-challenged people who keep harping at the lack of consideration for others being shown by not wearing a mask, PUT A SOCK IN IT. And then, securely tape your N-95 mask over it.

The world will thank you for your ‘consideration’.

Here’s that article again:

As the ‘new normal’ kicks in, I can’t buck the feeling that this is anything BUT normal.

Israel is now coming out of its totally retarded, OTT ‘lockdown’, and some semblance of ‘normal life’ is returning.

For the last few days, I’ve been heading back off to the Kotel, trying to make up the 18 days I was missing from when I got stopped in the middle of my segula to visit the Kotel 40 days in a row, just after Purim.

I’ve discovered a new route that takes me through the back of an Arab neighborhood and up the backside of the hill that slopes up from Guy Ben Hinnom valley, where they used to sacrifice their children to Moloch, in Biblical times.

I now prefer that route to going on the main road, as Moloch and Mahmoud Al-Fahda is scaring me way less than the Israeli police.

====

Even though I’ve been to the Kotel six times now, I’ve only managed to actually kiss the wall three times.

Friday night, the gestapo  police decided there were too many people in the plaza, so there was a big line of us queuing up outside, instead.

For the first time ever on a Friday night, the ‘Reform Plaza’ was filled to capacity – 45 people – all frum Jews, who’d been barred entry to the main event.

Then on a couple of other occasions, I got in to the Womens’ section – which has now been divided up into cute, rectangular white tented areas that just seem creepily reminiscent of Bergen-Belsen huts, minus the rooves.

But there were now ‘too many people’ at the wall itself, so I got sent to the left – to the rectangular tented area marked ‘waiting area #14’ – and I just kind of stood there for a few minutes before turning tail and heading home.

====

Of course, I have to wear a mask way up over my eyeballs in the plaza itself.

And my forehead has to be shot at by weird men who seem to be strangely over-enjoying their role ‘pretend shooting’ people in the head with a thermometer gun. I guess it’s the next best thing to playing ‘Call of Duty’.

And then, one time I made the mistake of going to the Kotel with my husband, and trying to wait for him to finish up in back of the plaza. A fat, quasi gestapo  police minion in a bright fluorescent vest and an oversized facemask marched up to me and told me it was forbidden for me to stand there and wait.

Geveret, you can’t stand here. We can’t have too many people here.

I looked around – there were maybe another 30 people max, scattered all over the back part of the Kotel plaza – and I almost had to choke myself to stop from saying puh-leeze!!!!, or tossing off a casual heil hitler, and clicking my heels together.

I get it, I know. You are only following orders, right?

====

Over the last couple of months, I have learned that acting like a nazi is something good and proper, as long as you limit yourself to forcibly taking people’s rights and basic personal freedoms away, on pain of harsh punishment and massive fines.

But protesting that type of fascist behavior by saying ‘heil hitler’, or goose-stepping away from a public official is the wrong way to act like a nazi.

Please everyone, remember this. I’d hate for you to get this wrong and end up in some gestapo police basement, having your fingernails pulled out by a public servant because you picked the wrong way to act like a nazi.

====

But I digress.

With all this ‘normal’ going on, my daughter resumed her driving lessons. She and the instructor both wear masks and rubber gloves (uh, why is that, exactly?) – and the instructor has also been forced to put a clear plastic partition down the middle of the car, where the gearbox is.

Let’s be clear, there is way more risk to human life from novice drivers having their rubber-gloved hands stick to the wheel, or from having that massive mask block their view of the monster truck bearing down on them from out of left field, than there is from any virus.

I actually almost knocked myself out in one shop, because I didn’t see their see-thru plastic sheeting next to the till until I’d head-butted it, trying to pay for my purchase.

While we’re on the subject of totally dumb ‘health measures’ that are 10000% for show, do you know how many ‘germs’ all those cute cloth masks with fake Adidas branding keep out? Maximum 3%.

Oooops, sorry that was a real fact.

Don’t know how that got into any discussion about proper ‘hygiene’ in the era of Coronavirus.

My bad.

====

The other kid went back to school yesterday, and the weird normal is also in full swing there. Everyone has to wear masks and gloves full time (which is of course, totally unenforceable, even if it wasn’t also totally pointless).

It’s a dorming school, so they have 2 girls in a room now – as opposed to 5 or 6 pre-Corona – and because they can’t guarantee the ‘hygiene’ of the school kitchen, they are buying all the food takeout, from local restaurants.

Because there are no Corona germs in restaurants.

And anyone who argues with this statement clearly doesn’t know anything about science.

No-one has worked out how the kids are meant to be eating that stuff while fully-masked, so I made a helpful suggestion that they should just puree it all up and then suck in their meals through a straw that’s been hermetically-taped into their masks.

Probably next week, that will be the next ridiculous rule  sensible measure the Government foisters on us all, for our own good.

Gotta love #Coronafascism!!

====

There’s also a rule in place that you don’t have to wear a facemask if you’re exercising, because apparently you can’t catch or transmit Coronavirus when jogging, walking fast or playing basketball.

Again, please don’t try and argue with the logic of this statement, because if it’s the law, it must be totally scientific.

I don’t wear hot-pink spandex to exercise; and I don’t have a massive i-Phone to publically stick on a bicep, so I decided that whenever I see a cop on my daily hitbodedut walk, I’m going to stick my elbows out at right angles and ‘power walk’.

Don’t you know? Didn’t you hear? If your elbows are sticking out when you walk, then you are incapable of transmitting Coronavirus. But if you’re carrying your purse while walking on the way to the store – then you’re back in the ‘high risk’ box.

I guess Coronavirus germs are unusually attracted to credit cards, or something.

====

So anyway, today I went to visit one of my friends who I haven’t seen for months.

She has 4 small kids, and she’s been cooking, cleaning and all round entertaining them for 3 months solid at home.

Like so many of us, last week she cracked up and totally lost it for a night. I think last week was rough for so many people, me included. I’ve spoken to many other ladies out there – heroines all! – who after months and months of 5 star service for our families just really feel like we need a day off.

We were both regaling each other with our ‘survivor tales’ from the last three months, and laughing our heads off, because what else can you do?

What else can you do, when your three year old comes home from gan demanding to wear a mask, because the pseudo-frum ganenet has scared the pants off them that otherwise, breathing fresh air is probably going to kill them, God forbid?

What else can you do, when your teenager has allergies – the same allergies she’s had every single Spring, for 15 years – but now has to hide away at home in case she gets put on some secret Shabak blacklist for sneezing in public?

What else can you do, when the anti-Semitic government says its OK to get together on L’Ag B’omer, but it’s still forbidden to go to Meron or light a bonfire in your own backyard.

Someone please explain to me, how is lighting a bonfire in my own back garden increasing any risk of getting or sharing Coronavirus?

Really?

What if I saw up a few logs – for exercise – before I do it, and kill off all the Coronavirus germs that way, before I toss the first match in? Would that work?

And in the meantime, what else can I do, except laugh.

====

When I’m done typing this, I’m popping out to buy a dart board.

I have a small, cheap one in my garden, and I’ve discovered that throwing sharp instruments at something with violent hand gestures is actually really cathartic.

When I told my husband what I’m up to, he asked me to promise that I’m not going to print off any pictures, to stick up on that dart board. He doesn’t think that’s healthy.

It’ll be nobody we know personally, I told him.

That’s the best I can do.

But as we lurch onwards towards geula, and as we settle into this weird ‘breathing space’ between birth pangs, I have a feeling I’m going to be spending quite a bit of time with my dart board.

Dear man, I told my husband, much better I have an inanimate object to use for target practice, than someone I’m married to.

What else could he do when I told him that, except laugh?

Don’t forget that Questions for God – Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife Volume II – is now out on Amazon! You can pick it up HERE.

Rabbi Pinto recently put out a new message where he warned people very starkly to stay away from the media.

You can read the full translation of his words HERE, or see him saying it yourself, in the original Hebrew, in the video below:

====

====

Here’s some of the key points, interspersed with screenshots of various ‘fake news’ sites that you and I often go to for information, that kind of bring Rav Pinto’s point home very nicely.

====

DISCONNECT YOURSELVES FROM EVERYTHING BEING SAID IN THE MEDIA.

These are evil words, and aren’t good.

=====

====

They [the media] are being paid in order to write things, to flood your minds with shtuyot (inanity).

====

====

Ed. note: sounds like more doctors in Russia died from ‘falling out of windows’ than they did from COVID-19… If there were any real journalists still in the MSM, you’d think at least one of them would have their curiosity piqued by how very dangerous Russian hospital windows suddenly became, during the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’…

Back to Rabbi Pinto.

====

The things that they say are not correct. If someone wants to destroy someone else, they just pay [the media to do it].

====

Can you tell what is really the ‘sponsored content’ in this screenshot, above?

====

So the first thing is to not listen to divrei hefker, (pointless, meaningless talk) – not even in the dati (religiously observant) media.

EVERYTHING THERE HAS BEEN SOLD FOR MONEY.

====

====

Get away from there [media sites] as if it was fire. Don’t listen, don’t accept what you’re being told, don’t be a part of it.

====

====

People ask me: How can Rav Berland be the last test before Moshiach comes, if so many people haven’t even heard of him?

It’s a good question, and I’ve been pondering the answer for some time. Now, I think I have a possible response.

Sure, you didn’t know about Rabbi Berland beforehand, you weren’t aware of what a saintly individual he truly is, so you bought all the media lies hook, line and sinker.

But at this stage in the game, there are so many questions to be asked about so many subjects, where we are being lied to, from Prozac being a ‘cure’ for so-called broken brains; and vaccines being ‘unquestionably’ safe; and electromagnetic radiation and WIFI and smartphones having no adverse affects on the human body; and Coronavirus being an unusual ‘pandemic’, as opposed to just a regular flu that got used to take away almost all of our basic human rights….

That at some point, even the most dense person has to stop for a moment, and ask themselves if they should really be uncritically digesting all the ‘news’ being churned out by the MSM.

====

Sure, you never heard about Rav Berland.

But does that mean you are incapable of doing even a minimal amount of critical analysis and independent thinking about so many other subjects, that are having a massive and immediate impact on your life?

And of entertaining the uncomfortable notion that maybe, just maybe, all that MSM-inspired lashon hara and troof you’ve been spreading all over the place could also be the result of a paid campaign of slander, bought by the vested interests who are trying to bring ‘good’ down and destroy Torah Judaism in the world?

Just askin’.

====

Let’s give the last word, again, to Remy, who really is a genius for summing up the corruption in the world succinctly in rhyme, within 2 minutes of less:

====

====

The media have been playing us all for fools for decades.

I really hope more of us are going to figure that out very soon, and make the teshuva we need to make to start radically sweetening the next stage of this geula process.

Dying is inevitable.

Our atheist society doesn’t like that idea, because it really underlines the utter pointlessness of a life devoted to the whims of a body that is ultimately just going to crumble to dust.

When there is no soul in the picture, no God, no real spiritual purpose in life, then life just becomes a game of keeping the body together, for as long as you can, whatever it takes.

Even if it means in the meantime that all your quality of life, all of the things that make life joyful, and meaningful and basically live-able, go straight down the toilet.

Who wants to live in a world where you can’t take a breath of fresh air without a mask?

Or a walk in a forest?

Or a visit to a holy site?

Who wants to live in a world where you can’t hang out with a friend, or go visit a parent, or share your holy days and happy occasions with other human beings?

All this cack about not hugging and not touching and not kissing other people is precisely that: cack.

====

Life is inherently risky. There is absolutely nothing you can do to reduce the risk down to ‘zero’, and the only way to really deal with all the anxiety and worry and stress is to take it back to God, and accept that whatever God decides, that’s what is going to happen.

Many years ago, before I started working more on my emuna, I had massive fears and anxieties about getting ill, or dying in freak accidents. The anxiety was so big, I nearly cracked under the pressure. Really.

What finally got me out of the problem was when I told God:

Hashem, whatever You decree, I accept! I can’t fight you anymore, and trying to retain ‘control’ is just totally exhausting me and driving me mad.

And then, the clouds parted, and I started to enjoy living life again.

====

Rebbe Nachman dealt with this issue over 200 years ago, on many different occasions. This comes from ‘Tzaddik’, page 375, #445:

“There were many cases of people who came to the Rebbe with serious illnesses and he saw there was no chance that they would survive. He would talk to them in a way which went directly to their hearts, saying:

‘What is there for you to be afraid of about dying? The world there is far more beautiful than here.’

When a person has emuna in Hashem, and knows that this world is only a temporary corridor, that is the only thing that can really take the fear and anxiety about dying and falling sick away.

What does that tell us, when we saw the utter hysteria that’s engulfed so many parts of the so-called ‘frum’ Jewish world about Coronavirus?

====

The kabbalist Rav Yehuda Sheinfeld recently put out a very interesting interview, which you can read in its entirety HERE.

The basic idea is that all the ‘informers’ that are springing up within the ranks of the Jewish people are the ones that are being weeded out, ahead of Moshiach coming, because the halacha is that we don’t wait for ‘informers’ to make teshuva.

Rav Sheinfeld was discussing specifically the people who have framed Rabbi Berland, but it seems to me his words apply equally to all those people who are encouraging others to rat on their neighbors to the secular authorities for holding an ‘illegal’ minyan; or to rat on people for daring to visit their family members; or who think it’s a great ‘mitzvah’ to ‘shame’ people in their local Whats App group for not wearing masks in the street 24/7.

Those informers are not going to be part of the kehilla waiting to greet Moshiach (unless they do some serious teshuva)….

COVID-19 is doing a very profound birur, and it’s very interesting to watch it play out across the world.

====

One of my brothers-in-law is a MD who specialises in geriatrics. He lives in the US, and refuses to wear a mask in public because he knows it’s 1000% BS, that wearing masks has anything to do with decreasing the risk of infection from COVID, or saving lives.

Do you know how many people have yelled at him on the streets?

Why do these people think they know better than a medical doctor, who treats geriatrics for a living?

====

Let’s end with this, which is pure genius, and makes the point about life being inherently risky in a different way.

It has a clip of Senator Elizabeth Warren at the beginning, so it’s not shmirat eynayim friendly – but listen to the lyrics. The guy is brilliant. But please don’t laugh at the very important message he is trying to put across, unless of course, you want people to die.

====

POSTSCRIPT:

Amazon finally relented, and stuck up the Kindle version of Questions for God, the second volume of the Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife, on their site. You can get it HERE.

And pretty much the same day that happened, I found out that the online magazine I founded and then handed over to different management last year, Sassonmag.com, decided to censor my posts and then delete all my writing.

Swings and roundabouts….

And the birur continues apace.

Those words are loaded, aren’t they?

Especially for Jews. That’s why it’s quite concerning to hear someone like Bill Gates talking about his ‘final solution’ to the Corona pandemic.

The following video is highly recommended, to understand just how much the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has cornered the public health market in the world. The Foundation is funding the WHO (who told everyone they have to wear masks for ever and ever and ever, until there is a vaccine); and is also funding the Imperial College of London, who co-in-cid-en-tal-ly came up with the scary predictive models for COVID-19 that persuaded one government after another to go into lockdown.

And which have now been shown to be totally false.

This video is by reporter James Corbett, and it’s the first of a series setting out exactly how the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been operating. It’s not shmirat eynayim friendly, so you can also read the transcript or get just the MP3 to listen to HERE.

In the meantime, more and more people in the UK, US and Israel are reporting that their elderly loved ones were effectively starved to death in hospitals after receiving a COVID-19 diagnosis.

D.S. has been sending me emails about that, and it’s worth having a look at her website HERE, for more information. But the vozisneas website, below, also covered this story, as more and more people are coming forward to say that their relatives were killed by medical negligence while being hospitalised for ‘COVID-19’, as opposed to the virus itself.

There is a huge scandal about to erupt here.

Fasten your seatbelts.

====

====

More than anything else, I wanted to run away.

I wanted to pull the plug on all my ‘citizen journalism’, all my attempts to keep telling people what’s really going on with the fake, politically-engineered ‘pandemic’, and all the research and effort and soul power that costs me.

What I wanted to do was basically give up on ‘reality’ as it’s currently playing out, and to just concentrate on getting my Secret Diaries out there – regardless of who reads them – so I could feel I really did accomplish *something* in life, and then just spend the rest of my time gardening and knitting.

That was basically the plan.

But as so often happens, God decided differently.

====

I’m 99% sure that Amazon is about to ban my Secret Diary #2, Questions for God, at least the Kindle version – which is the only way anyone is really buying books these days.

It’s still ‘in review’ – after 3 days – and the last time that happened was when Amazon decided to ban Rabbi Berland’s book of Prayers for Health, which included a tagline for the Coronavirus prayer on the cover.

Amazon being Amazon, they never tell you why they are banning anything, so it was a lucky ‘guess’ with Rav Berland’s book. I switched the cover around a little (after it took me 3 weeks to recover from the disappointment), removed any mention of ‘Corona’, and managed to get it past them that way.

But when it comes to Questions for God?

I have no idea why it appears they want to ban it. So, I have no idea what I can do to get it unbanned. Of course, this all may be premature, we’ll see, but in the meantime I did another six hours yesterday, and a bit more hitbodedut about it all today, too, and the message I got was this:

Rivka, you can’t run away into your books. There’s a lot of other stuff you still need to do.

====

I typed that, and I sighed a big sigh.

Because honestly? I’ve had enough.

====

Jews are so stubborn.

For years, most of my extended family members and friends have been relating to me as an amusing, but somewhat demented conspiracy theorist.

I am the weirdo who totally trashed my career prospects and social life by moving to Israel. And if that wasn’t bad enough, I then added insult to injury by becoming a ‘religious extremist’ who started talking to God every day, and visiting the tombs of dead saints.

Of course, things went up yet another level when I started getting closer to Rav Berland. That’s when I started getting into arguments with just about everyone I know, both on and offline, who were convinced that they knew better because they avidly read Ynet and the Yeshiva World News every day.

Even my own children spent two years thinking I was a brainwashed, cult-member ‘lunatic’ for supporting the Rav, because that’s what they were hearing from their media-indoctrinated friends.

That was, and still is, pretty painful.

====

But you know why I threw myself so wholeheartedly behind Rabbi Berland?

Because every time I talked to God about the subject, I got the ‘message’ back that I should do everything in my power to help him, any way I could.

You know how I knew that Coronavirus was a crock right from the beginning?

Because every time I talked to God about what was going on, that was the message I got. That it really was meant to have been awful, but that the Rav had sweetened it with his self-sacrifice and prayers.

You know why I keep putting ‘unpopular’ posts up encouraging people to move to Israel ASAP, and having awkward conversations with people about how their pension – and savings, and stock market portfolios, and properties – are about to disappear in a puff of pixie dust very, very soon?

Yup, you guessed it.

Every time I check in with my neshama, and ask God about what’s happening, that’s the steer I get. Also from the writings of Rebbe Nachman (check out The Master of Prayer) and also from what I can see so clearly with the two eyes in my head that God gave me.

But Jews are so stubborn.

====

And that’s why so often, I just want to give up and go and do something more rewarding, like knitting a blanket, or something.

How many times can a person write the words:

Doing hitbodedut is the only way you are really going to figure out what’s going on?

How many times can I keep sticking hours, days and weeks’ worth of rock-solid research up here on the site, just to keep seeing it derailed by innate biases, bad middot, and arrogance?

God, I give up!!!

Let me just go and write some books – just for my own enjoyment and edification, I don’t even care if people don’t buy them anymore – and forget about trying to change anybody else’s mind, or viewpoint.

Dayenu!

I’m done. I’m finished. I’m retiring.

====

What can I tell you?

I want to give up. What’s the point of writing this stuff, when so many people just can’t hear it, or believe it, or deal with it?

What’s the point?

I want to give up and go and do something more personally fulfilling, that doesn’t keep putting me in opposition to 99.9% of the rest of the world.

But God isn’t letting me.

Again.

Six days ago, Israel upped the # of tests for COVID-19 to 11,000 a day.

Before that, they were testing at somewhere between 5-6.500 tests a day:

On Wednesday, 5,570 tests were conducted; on Thursday, 5,421 tests; and on Friday, there were 5,980 testing kits that arrived at the coronavirus laboratories.

It’s important to understand that the number of tests being done in Israel has effectively doubled over the last week, so that you can really start to grasp just how much COVID-19 has come off the boil here.

====

The figures below are from the Worldometer website.

They show some very good news.

This figure shows the ‘peak’ of the number of people actively infected with COVID-19 that occurred on April 15th, i.e. they hadn’t either recovered from it, or died from it, lo alenu.

====

====

This shows where we’re holding now – the TOTAL number of active cases is down, plus they also effectively DOUBLED the number of people they are testing – so the real infection rates in Israel are falling even lower than this number suggests.

The last 5 days, the number of new cases has just been in the 200+ region.

====

Similarly, daily deaths are down from a ‘peak’ of 13 a day (and can I just point out again, that on average 131 people die in Israel EVERY SINGLE DAY, even when there is no pretend pandemic):

====

And there is a sharp spike in the numbers of newly-recovered, while the numbers of new cases has dipped – and remember again, they have doubled the testing over the last week, so these stats are even more impressive than it appears, on first glance.

====

In Israel, there is no pandemic.

And in the rest of the world, the numbers of people dying are also well in line with a bad flu season.

Let’s take the UK, which so many people like to talk up as a ‘terrible example’ of mortality from COVID-19.

In 2017 – known as a ‘bad’ flu year – this is what the UK National Office of Statistics says, about total number of people who died that year:

There were 533,253 deaths registered in England and Wales in 2017, a 1.6% increase from 2016 and the highest number registered annually since 2003.

So, in a bad flu year, 533,000 divided by 12 months of the year = 44,416 deaths every month, on average.

When you have that context, 17,337 deaths in total (over three months, meaning 5,779 deaths per month – when 44,500 normally die every month), attributed to COVID, in the UK, just doesn’t sound so much. It’s around a 9th of the normal dying rate).

====

This table shows the excess mortality from winter deaths in the UK, from the office of National Statistics.

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/excesswintermortalityinenglandandwalesreferencetables

It shows that over 50,000 EXTRA people died during the winter in 2018, presumably from flu and other cold-weather related issues.

This figure hugely dwarfs the 17,337 people dying from COVID-19 – and we are almost in May.

====

If you look at that same table, in figure 3, it also shows the daily death rates for the UK in 2018.

There is not a day goes by that has less than 1,150 people dying every single day – as normal – even in the middle of the Summer.

And in the winter, the ‘normal death rate typically spikes up to well over 2,000 people dying a day.

====

So, let me ask you again: Does this really sound like an unusual pandemic is going on, with COVID-19?

In the meantime, it’s now illegal to go to the Kotel, to grab a breath of fresh air without wearing a pointless mask, and to visit your friends, go for a long walk, or invite guests for Shabbat.

Why?

Even though COVID-19 is already fading from sight, the OTT dictatorship and police state is sadly not going anywhere fast. They are now trying to talk up the ‘second wave’ of COVID-19 to justify keeping us under lock and key for the foreseeable future, seeing as the first wave failed to deliver millions of dead people, like it was meant to.

The good news is:

Geula is on the way.

====

And you can do your bit to get it the sweet way by encouraging as many people as you can to download Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s Prayers for Health, for FREE, over the next five days.

The book contains a prayer to be saved from the Coronavirus, and as regular readers of this blog already know, without the Rav’s prayers, self-sacrifice and sweetening, we would be in a very different situation with the COVID-19 ghost pandemic.

But there is still a lot to do, especially for the Jewish communities in NY and New Jersey, who HAVE been hit hard by COVID-19. There is a lot of teshuva still to make, a lot of ‘sweetening’ still required.

You can go HERE to download the book for free, and it will stay free until Sunday, April 26th, 2020.

(Personally, I’d keep it free permanently, but Amazon won’t let me….)

====

Two days ago, Rabbi Berland gave over a shiur where he said this:

If everyone would have made aliya to Eretz Yisrael, then immediately the Moshiach would have come.

Everyone needs to make aliyah to Eretz Yisrael, we need to return everyone to here, great and small, as one. Rabbanim, Admorim and Chassidim – everyone needs to ascend to Eretz Yisrael.

=====

It looks like the time of the ‘3 oaths’ preventing Jews from ascending ‘like a wall’ to Eretz Yisrael has now been clearly ended.

Even if the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’ drops off, there will be another birth pang along shortly. As soon as the skies reopen, plan to make aliya ASAP. Don’t forget the lessons learned from what we’ve all been through the last 2 months, if things go back to ‘normal’ soon.

That lull is only temporary.

It’s only so you can get your act together, and get over to Israel ASAP.

Don’t forget that, when it all starts to return to ‘normal’.

====

UPDATE:

Look at this headline, from today’s Jerusalem Post:

Here’s how it’s misleading the public, deliberately or otherwise:

  1. As opposed to the number of people who are ACTIVELY infected, which are the numbers I’m using in the article above, which peaked at 9,808 thousand people 7 days ago, and is now dropping every day, as more people recover than are infected, they continue to tell you – wrongly – that ’14, 326 patients are infected’. I.e. they are including everyone who ever came back with a positive test result for COVID, even though well over 4,000 people have now officially recovered.
  2. Maths is not their strong point, you can tell. Even though we are now – after 6 weeks of total fearmongering – getting a little bit of honesty from the MSM about the numbers of old people dying from COVID-19, even now, the Jpost is still fudging the issue. Their headline makes it seem as though 25% of people who apparently died from COVID were UNDER 70. But if we add up the numbers for how many people were over 70, we actually get:

88.58%

And if they would include the figures for the over 65s too, then this figure would expand significantly.

====

To put this in other words, close to 90% of all the people who died from COVID in Israel were over 70.

If they were telling you this fact from a few weeks ago, would you have agreed to let them stop schools, shut down synagogues and crash the economy so that 25% of all Israelis – and 50% of those aged 35 or less – are now unemployed?

Nope, me neither.

I guess that’s why they didn’t tell us.
