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.

====

Apparently, the gates of Eretz Yisrael are now shut to Jews.

That’s what I’ve been hearing from many of my contacts abroad, that unless you have prior Israeli citizenship, you can no longer move to Israel because of ‘COVID’ (sarcasm is included in the quote marks).

The last few weeks, I’ve had a bunch of conversations with people all over the world, who are trying to get back to Israel, but now can’t. Some of them own property here, some of them were in the process of making aliyah formally and were literally at the last step and had tickets bought – but they still aren’t being allowed in.

Yesterday, I had this email land in my inbox from someone in the States who wants to get to Israel ASAP, and has been told they can’t, unless they are a citizen:

Rivka, I spoke to Jewish Agency and been informed Aliyah would take too long.

The dangers may be imminent, all this information im hearing about FEMA camps that can actually be concentration camps and martial law worries me and Poskim over there like Rav Berland and Rav Yoel Shwartz of Dvar Yerushalayim has said to return to Israel asap. I definitely want to leave at most in a few weeks. A bunch of companies especially Elal are restarting 2nd week of May.

Can you inquire from any of your sources if non Israeli Citizens / just US citizens have been able to fly to Israel and get in, which defers from what they say online about not being able to unless Aliyah has been completed. Ive read that they might be more lenient than they say.

====

I was pondering all this in hitbodedut this morning, and God reminded me about these MTV ‘commercials’ from back in 2011 (warning: they are not shmirat eynayim suitable).

====

They were taken down very quickly, and scrubbed off the net.

But some people saved them at the time, and are now re-uploading them (we’ll see how long this video stays up on Youtube, more evidence of the ongoing censorship in action). That’s also why the quality is grainy – they aren’t the originals. They got ‘removed’ a long time ago.

When I first saw them 9 years ago, I thought they were bizarre – but a warning from Heaven.

Today, they are making me pretty nervous.

So, WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT ALL THIS?

====

Here’s what I think.

We need to put our own brains aside, and follow the advice of the Tzaddik HaDor, Rabbi Eliezer Berland.

Last week, he put out a statement saying that millions of Jews will come to Eretz Yisrael on ships.

Just like the authorities shut down the escape route to Eretz Yisrael (in connivance with the people who then went on to become the ‘official’ government in the State of Israel….) before World War II, so history appears to be repeating itself.

The planes are down, the gates are apparently shut, for now.

But I am sure that God is not going to leave it like this.

I’m sure that anyone who really wants to get here still can. Just it’s going to take a lot of prayer and mesirut nefesh.

And probably, hiring a boat.

Dumb as this sounds, if you really want to get to Israel and they aren’t opening up the flights soon, and they aren’t letting ‘non-citizens’ come, club together, hire a boat, and sail to the Holy Land.

The boat ride will act as official ‘quarantine’ in the meantime, and then the Israeli Authorities will face a public relations disaster of enormous proportions mamash, if a boat full of Jews who want to make aliya shows up at an Israeli port, and the State of Israel tries to turn it away.

Only nazis would do something like that…..

And our wonderful government, with the holy Bibi at its head, would never do something that evil…

Especially not when the public is watching, and the civil unrest in the country is already starting to build.

====

So yalla!

Start organizing the next ‘Exodus’ ASAP.

Things are going back to fake ‘normal’ for a few more weeks, a few more months, so that anyone who just woke up and now wants to make aliyah can still do it – just with a lot of effort.

BH, they will re-open the flights, and re-open the ability to get here as a non-citizen in an easier way soon too, but don’t rely on that. If the Tzaddik HaDor is talking about coming on ships, that’s probably good advice to at least start exploring from a practical perspective.

Because just like those MTV commercials, I’m starting to get holocaust deja vu.

====

PS: I just want to add, as an afterthought, even though part of me is so sick of repeating the same thing and being almost totally ignored, that if more of us would throw our weight behind Rabbi Eliezer Berland, the Tzaddik HaDor and hezkat Moshiach of our generation, that all these negative scenarios would disappear like a puff of smoke.

But so many of the Jews out there seem to be playing some kind of weird game of ‘chicken’ with God, seeing who is going to blink first.

It seems to me that so many people are so invested in their egos, and their public appearance, and have such an overwhelming need to be ‘right’, that they literally can’t climb down from whatever ‘anti-Rav Berland’ tree they backed themselves up into, by believing all the lying media reports of recent years, even if it’s going to prevent another holocaust.

28 people downloaded Rabbi Berland’s Prayers #2, and just one holy soul – may God bless them! – actually bought the paperback version, so the book was officially ‘printed’ in the world.

Modest as that sounds, I know that sweetened things tremendously, at least here in Israel, because yesterday – the last day of the free download – nearly all the businesses in Israel reopened, albeit with the dumb masks and police state still clearly lurking.

====

Getting behind the Rav sweetens all this, and brings geula the much easier, nicer way, without FEMA camps, COVID-19 or martial law.

BH, I really hope more people will be able to swallow their pride, and admit they made a mistake. About slandering the Rav, about mocking the rabbis who were calling for people to make aliya for over a decade, about thinking they know better than our holy leaders….

If we make teshuva, everything can and will turn around in the blink of an eye.

The choice is ours.

Another short post, as I’m trying to pull together Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife #3.

#2 is almost ready, and I’ll let you know when it’s up on Amazon.

So, I was thinking about what Rabbi Berland said way back in 2016, as part of this post:

“The Rav said that at the moment that Moshiach would be revealed, Armilus HaRasha [the head of the mixed multitude, or Erev Rav] would come, together with all of the nations of the world, and he would try to fight against the Moshiach. So then the Moshiach would escape to the desert, together with some simple, pure-minded people, and there they would hide-out for nine months, the same amount of time as it takes to bring a pregnancy to term.

After nine months, the Moshiach would return and would reveal himself openly to everyone, and then everyone would reconcile with him, and make peace with him. The Rav said that the moment that Moshiach received his [spiritual] crown on the day of hakhel, soldiers will come from all over the world, with warships from all the nations of the world, against Eretz Yisrael.”

====

Go back and re-read the whole thing, as it’s talking about what’s happening right now, and what will occur before we get to Moshiach and geula, hopefully the sweet way.

Because even with all the corona-fascists, this is still the sweet way, at the moment.

There is food to buy, electricity, some sort of ‘law and order’, however corrupt and stifling.

====

But the key points that struck me are these;

  1. The Moshiach will be hidden for 9 months – which corresponds to the 9 months of ‘foreign rule’ in Israel.
  2. Rav Berland went into prison on February 9th. Two weeks later, we all followed him into ‘prison’, as Corona Fascism began in Israel, and other places around the world.
  3. In 9 months time, we get to Succot.
  4. The Moshiach reveals himself during Succot, specifically the Hakhel ceremony that occurs on the first day of that chag, on the 8th year after Shmitta.
  5. That’s when all the nations of the world will come to fight against the Moshiach, and Israel.

====

Here’s what the Jewish Virtual Library has to say about Hakhel:

HAKHEL (Heb. הַקְהֵל; “assemble”). The Bible enjoins that “At the end of every seven years, at the time of the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles” there is to take place an assembly of the whole people, “men, women, children, and the stranger that is within your gates.” The purpose of this assembly is “that they may hear and so learn to revere the Lord your God and to observe faithfully every word of this Teaching” (Deut. 31:10–13).

This ceremony, called Hakhel (“assemble”) after the opening word of verse 12, is mentioned only once in the Talmud (Sot. 7:8), but in great detail and includes an interesting historical incident. The Mishnah lays it down (ibid.) that the date referred to is on the first day of the festival of Sukkot after the close of the seven-year period of *shemittah, i.e., on the 15th day of the first month of the eighth year.

====

We know from HERE, that Rav Berland told us that this process of Moshiach coming is going to last until 5781 – next year.

Rav Berland, shlita, said then:

“We are now preparing the Yom Kippur of 5776, preparing the Yom Kippur a day of salvation of 5781 when the Rosh Hashanah will come out on Shabbos and Pesach on Motzaei Shabbos and there will be a Purim Meshulash, when there will be the geulah, then it will be a day for relief, 5781, so will the true salvation to Israel, which Daniel prophesized that this will be on two thousand and three hundred, morn till eve, 2300 years, which will end in 5781, the year of Israel’s salvation.

The Rav continued:

“AND NOW WE ARE PREPARING IN THESE SAME SIX YEARS, AND THOSE SIX YEARS FROM 5776 UNTIL 5781, THESE ARE YEARS OF REDEMPTION. THESE ARE YEARS IN WHICH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WILL DO TESHUVA, THE BIGGEST CRIMINALS WILL DO TESHUVA, BECAUSE THERE ARE NO SECULAR IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THERE ARE NO CRIMINALS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, AND NO WICKED PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

“These are all just stages in the salvation, it’s all stages in the development of the soul, in accepting the parts of the soul, the biggest gangster in the end will become the most righteous man.”

====

The next shemitta year beings in 5782 – September 2021.

So, I have no idea how all this is meant to fit together.

And also, our teshuva can definitely get everything to change overnight, especially if all the Jews move to Israel, as the Rav is now explicitly urging them to do.

But it looks like things are going to continue along the ‘weird’ path for a while still, as this process unfolds.

So prepare yourselves mentally.

 

 

Well, I’m typing this in the middle of a dystopian novel…

This morning, I got up early and went with one of my kids to walk in the forest nearby to my home. This particular kid has been pretty depressed the last two weeks, because she’s had no face-to-face contact with friends for 5 weeks, and she’s 16.

Plus, she’s been feeling – like so many of her peers – that there is absolutely no point in waking up, just to spend hours cooped up bored in the house.

But yesterday I told her, don’t let them win! Don’t let the b*stards win! They want to make us all fat, miserable and totally depressed and apathetic, so we just roll over and let them take over every aspect of our lives. Don’t let them get you down!! Keep setting small goals every day, and find small things to make you happy!

So today, she amazed me by getting up early enough to come for a walk with me.

We both took our stupid, pointless masks – the most obvious sign of the medical dictatorship that’s taken over the world –  and headed into the woods. It was fresh and crisp, a little overcast, quiet and green. It was magic.

For 20 minutes.

====

Then, the stupid cops showed up again, and asked us where we lived. We told them – it was within 500 m of forest – so then, they went to their next complaint: why are you walking in the forest?

Why can’t we walk in the forest? My daughter wanted to know.

If we can walk on the street, if we can walk around a super, what is the frigging problem with walking in a totally empty forest at 7am when there is no-one else around?!?!?!?

The policeman went into his ridiculous shpiel, my daughter’s eyes glazed over, and mine hardened into two shiny little black lazer beams. I didn’t say anything, I just looked at him. I’ve learned from experience, that freaks them out way more than anything I could say.

So, we got our marching orders, and the girl who used to be a convinced, ardent Zionist is increasingly coming around to the viewpoint that the State of Israel – and its institutions – really are evil.

I guess that’s one of the silver linings of all this.

====

But then when I got home, I slumped a little.

How much longer can we all continue living in this dystopian novel, where fresh air and walking in forests has been outlawed?

I’ve taken to shopping as much as possible in the corner shop, even though it’s more expensive, as every time I go to the super, the mandatory temperature taking and grim-faced customers in masks just totally freaks me out.

They’ve turned the whole world into an open air prison, and none of us are even complaining.

And so many sheeple are still buying the lies, and genuinely thinking that all this is being done for our benefit. As if.

====

Many months ago, Rav Berland talked about how the Tzaddik and his people would have to go and spend 9 months in the desert, before Moshiach came.

The son of David can’t come until after 9 months of being in the wilderness, where they will do true, real Teshuva. There is nothing like pressing some ‘Moshiach’ button and then Moshiach will arrive…. Am Yisrael will need to be in the wilderness, in the desert, in order to make true Teshuva.”

When I first read that, it seemed kind of unrealistic.

Today, I’m honestly pondering if that’s going to be the only way me and my family can avoid the  COVID-19 neo-fascists. If I drop off the grid entirely, and go and see if there’s some patch of desert I can live on where no-one will fine me for breathing fresh air.

See, I just wrote that, and I’m back in the dystopian novel.

It’s a strange time you live in, when John Wyndham and George Orwell books start to sound like prescient journalism, as opposed to exaggerated prophecies of doom.

I hope God is going to get us out of this situation soon.

Because living in a world where it’s illegal to take a walk in a forest or breathe fresh air is really not fun.

====

 

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.

Things are turning around – solely because more and more people are starting to make teshuva.

This isn’t going to be a long post, as I’ve decided I need to spend way more time doing productive things in the real world, and way less time gorging on fake news posts about COVID online.

But I just wanted to point out 2 things, that will hopefully bring you some comfort, dear reader.

  1. The numbers of people newly infected with COVID are dropping rapidly in Israel, the US and the UK.

The following graphs, from the World-o-meter website, tell their own story:

DEATH RATE IN THE USA:

====

Remember, there is at least a 5 day time lag on the new infection rate, because of the amount of time it takes to get test results back, so the actual incidence of COVID could be way less than even these numbers suggest.

Long story short, the ‘pandemic’ came off the boil on Seder Night, exactly as Rav Berland said it would.

====

2. Everything can and will turn around if the Jewish people make teshuva.

Baruch Hashem, many of the leaders of the chareidi community, particularly in Israel, are starting to come out with strong statements linking COVID-19 to the lashon hara and persecution aimed at Rav Berland, and his community.

Here’s a few of the latest statements:

https://ravberland.com/psak-din-to-close-the-breslov-kav-rav-moshe-bransdorfer/

https://ravberland.com/rav-pinchas-bunker-reveals-how-rav-berlands-persecutors-operate/

====

What I’ve been noticing is that each time there is some serious teshuva going on in the religious world, in relation to Rav Berland and Shuvu Banim, there’s an immediate change in what’s happening with the COVID stats and coverage in the secular world

It’s uncanny, how this ‘teshuva’ is made in the chareidi / religious world, and then a flurry of articles start coming out from secular people arguing against the Police State tactics, etc, and there are headlines showing a massive drop-off in new cases and seriously ill people.

In other words, all we need to do to get out of lockdown and make this all recede like a bad nightmare, is to make some sincere teshuva, and admit we were wrong.

Anyone who publically slandered the Rav, or privately accepted the lashon hara about him, should come clean, and admit they were wrong.

That is all that is required to get this to turn around, and to get geula the sweet way.

Yes Billam Gates is still evil, yes, there are still horrible agendas being put into place here, but that’s a problem really for the non-Jewish world, not for us. If we get behind the Rav, if we have achdus as a people, nobody can touch us.

All that’s required is our teshuva.

And then, God will do the rest.

====

UPDATE:

I was sent this video, of Dr Rashid Buttar, who expertly sets out exactly how many lies we are being told about this COVID-19 pandemic. He covers a lot of ground, very professionally, and I highly recommend you listen to this. He’s asking all other doctors, nurses and other scientists to come out and explain how so much of what we’re being told about all the ‘social distancing’ stuff etc is totally BS. Viruses can’t jump 6 feet… that’s just the beginning of the lies we’re being told.

Shmirat Eynayim friendly.

This isn’t going to stop, anytime soon.

Most people were hoping that Pesach would come and go, and that we would be freed from our present Mitzrayim, and free to go back to our shopping, and working out and socializing.

Here in Israel, it’s clear as day (at least, to me) that this is just not going to happen.

Not because the ‘risk’ from the Coronavirus didn’t go away on Seder night, the way Rabbi Berland said it would. If you look at the statistics, FEWER PEOPLE DIED IN THE LAST MONTH IN ISRAEL THAN IN THE SAME PERIOD LAST YEAR.

There is no pandemic. There are no ‘mass deaths’, at least, not in Israel.

====

What there is, though, is an illusion of a super-dangerous virus, with the media talking up ‘spikes’ in death rates and infection rates that are frankly laughable, and the government split into ‘good cop’ and ‘bad cop’, but actually all on the same team, and just delivering their scripted messages on cue.

What all the people who are waiting for things to go back to ‘normal’ fail to realize is that IF this ‘pandemic’ was based on facts and real evidence, no-one would be in lockdown now anyway, and none of this would be happening in the first place.

It’s all smoke and mirrors, it’s all an illusion, so don’t hold your breath waiting for things to be relaxed significantly any time soon, because the facts aren’t guiding our governments’ fascist and dictatorial actions.

Something else is.

====

What the something else might be is the question, and there is definitely the secular answer to that, which I sometimes get too caught up in, and the spiritual answer to that, which is actually where more of us need to be focused right now, including me.

Slowly, slowly, more of the rabbis in the chareidi world are starting to put out statements linking the terrible things going on with the ongoing lashon hara and slander, particularly against Rabbi Eliezer Berland, and his Shuvu Banim community, and Breslov more widely.

There’s a lot going up on the shuvubanimint.com Hebrew website, and some of that stuff is starting to be translated into English, too like this:

https://ravberland.com/leading-kabbalists-stark-warning-that-talking-against-rav-berland-is-linked-to-covid-19/

And this:

====

But to boil things down into their most simple, we are going to be stuck with the neo-fascists running Israel, and the rest of the world, until more Jews realise that the real ‘prison’ we’re stuck in is one of our own making.

That same lying media, that same anti-God government, who spun a bunch of lies into a ‘story’ that the Rav was a criminal, God forbid, is now doing the same thing again with COVID-19.

If you check into the facts, do even a little bit of basic research, just switch on one brain cell and use it to THINK – it’s obvious that there is nothing going on here right now, medically, that hasn’t been going on every single year, to a greater or lesser degree, since history began.

But, just as we swallowed down all the media lies about the Rav without switching that brain cell on, without doing even a tiny bit of research, without wanting to read One in a Generation, or to listen to the thousands of interviews with Gedolei HaDor all praising the Rav’s virtues and kedusha – now we are paying the price.

Me personally, I wear a mask outside only and solely to try and avoid any trouble with the police. If there were no police, I wouldn’t give a stuff about wearing a mask, because I know all the fearmongering about COVID-19 is a bunch of baloney, at least in Israel.

If God wants me to die, He’ll kill me. And as I wrote about HERE, the efficacy of masks to prevent infection is frankly a joke.

And the authorities know it too.

That’s why all the politicians and media people aren’t wearing masks. That’s why you see 5 police in a car together – and no-one wearing masks. The powers-that-be have the plebs chasing their tails and lying to them about pointless ‘social distancing’ rules and facemasks, because they want to see how gullible and pliable and brainwashed the populace really is.

==

There’s a growing resistance, it’s true.

More and more people are starting to feel uncomfortable, are starting to feel that ‘something’ is not quite right, with the picture being painted for them, that they can’t quite put their finger on.

But most of my kids’ friends have been forcibly kept under conditions of the strictest ‘lockdown’ in their own homes for more than a month now, by fearful parents who believe the media lies 100%.

Ooooo, there was just a massive ‘SPIKE’ in the deaths of old people to 14 a day[1] from COVID-19!! I read it on ynetnews, they wouldn’t lie…. Kid, you are not leaving the house until you’re 40 – or until they’ve injected you with the ‘cure’ to COVID-19, whatever happens first.

Sigh.

And of course, my kids’ friends have been gorging on ‘public health videos’ during the last month of lockdown, which encourage OCD handwashing rituals, discourage breathing, exercise and fresh air, and keep brainwashing them that a vaccine is the only answer to all their problems.

So of course, these people’s paranoia and fear of going outside, and their dependence on the news and government information to gauge what’s really going on in the world has rocketed up.

They’re making the Police State very happy.

It’s pure genius.

====

For the people who are seeing through the lies, there’s less paranoia and very little fear about COVID-19.

Instead, there’s a growing and abiding fear of the fascist government and violent police, and where all this is really headed –  and that’s why the focus still has to be on the spiritual response for these people, too.

====

It basically breaks down like this:

People who believed the lying media to become ‘anti’ Rav Berland, and ‘anti’ Breslov, and ‘anti’ Chareidi, generally, are probably also believing the lying media and big Pharma-funded medical establishment about COVID-19.

If and when the scales fall from their eyes, they will get out of the COVID-19 lockdown overnight, because they will come to understand that it’s all an illusion, together with so many of the other things the lying media and fascist government has been telling them about how the world – and people, and human health – really works.

For the people who already know this stuff, the test is to understand that Hashem Himself is arranging all of this to happen right now. And that there is no point getting angry at ‘the stick’, even when it’s dressed up as a hypocritical, violent policeman, or the lying, corrupt politicians, or the fascist, dictatorship-cum-democracy state, because everything is really just Hashem.

It’s a different test, but also incredibly challenging.

Especially as the fascist tendencies are really starting to show.

====

I went to shop in Mahane Yehuda this morning (Friday), as that’s the only way I can get a long walk without being hassled by the police.

I checked the news sites before I went, and there was nothing to suggest Jerusalem was being locked down tight again, apart from the chareidi areas like Meah Shearim, where the violent police have started firing stun grenades straight into the faces of defenceless 8 year old girls.

Ah, our heroes.

[sarcasm off]

So anyway, I left early and there we no police around, and I had the stupid mask under my chin so I can pull it up whenever I spot a cop, and a shopping bag under my arm to ‘virtue signal’ to the fascists that I’m following the rules….

It was the best walk I’ve had in a long time.

I get to Mahane Yehuda, and at least 95% of the stores were closed. I heard that around half the market was still open and operating, in recent weeks, so I was kind of surprised. But I found some fruit and veg, and some other bits that I needed, without having to be zapped by a thermometer gun or wait in the massive line for bread that is so reminiscent of Stalin’s Russia.

====

As I was finishing up, I spotted a group of 10-12 police – all totally ignoring the social distancing rules, only some of whom are wearing masks – having a ‘pow-wow’ at the main entrance to the market.

My heart sank.

Two minutes later, they’d set up barriers to the entrance and exit of the market, and a couple of cops a piece were hanging off the gates, radiating intimidation. I was already weighed down with shopping – see! I’m keeping the rules! – so I scooted pass them, with the stupid mask pulled up properly, then called my husband to come get me in the car.

It took him a while.

Why?

Because the police had cordoned off the whole of downtown, and he had to get into an argument with a cop just to be allowed through.

====

There was absolutely no public announcement of this extra ‘lockdown’ within a lockdown made on the news sites, but hey, once the fascist police state starts to flex its muscles, there is just no stopping it.

Didn’t we learn that already, from Nazi Germany?

So then, my husband pulls up to get me, and then does a U-turn to go back home – which is when one of the cops decides to come and question him about his illegal maneuver, pulled on an almost totally deserted street.

My husband apologized profusely (that always confuses them…) but what struck me as particularly menacing about this episode is that the police guy asked him twice:

Are you feeling OK, that you would drive like that? Are you feeling well?

My husband told him:

I’m just scared of the police.

Like we all are these days.

Especially when they start asking pointed questions about your state of health.

What, was the police guy going to force my husband out of the car to administer a ‘COVID-19’ test on the pavement? And then banish him to some COVID-19 gulag for 8 years?

I fear that’s what is coming next, God forbid.

====

But then, I also have to remember that ein od milvado. God is behind all this. That police guy is just an illusion. I just need to work on my emuna, and keep channeling all the anger I keep feeling about what is going on right now into emuna, that it’s leading to something good.

Moshiach is at the end of this process, make no mistake.

But that’s also why more of us need to wake up now, and to realise that there is no ‘normal’ any more.

There is just a path towards geula, and whether that path will be easy or hard depends on us, and our teshuva.

====

FOOTNOTES:

[1] The average number of deaths in Israel a day, with no COVID-19, is 131. Given that the authorities are claiming anyone who dies as a ‘COVID’ death, what this actually shows us is that 100 people LESS a day are currently dying in Israel, than is normal for this time of year.

This video just surfaced, and it’s shocking.

It’s shocking, because it shows a journalist speaking on TV in 2014, reading out a document that was put out by the Rockefeller Foundation in 2010, entitled Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development, which EXACTLY DESCRIBES the OTT lockdown going on right now across the world in response to a ‘pandemic’.

Or to put this in other words, what you are seeing play out across the whole world right now, including the total wrecking of economies and the imposition of defacto martial law by one country after another was PLANNED over ten years ago.

====

As I’ve been watching the hysteria about this fake ‘pandemic’ being continually whipped-up by the billionaire-owned mainstream media, and by the health officials and politicians in the pockets of big business and the agencies they’ve bought like the World Health Organisation, it struck me time and again that governments were going through some sort of pre-coordinated response.

Like, there was a ‘plan’ to crash the global economy, and to lockdown 2 billion people on what is frankly the flimsiest of pretexts. Open your eyes, and see that all the awful predictions simply haven’t materialised.

As this saga continues on, no-one is dropping dead in the streets, are they?

The death rates from Coronavirus are akin to a bad flu season, even in the worst hit countries like Italy. The people who are dying are nearly all pensioners with pre-existing health conditions.

THERE IS NO REASON TO ‘LOCKDOWN’ ANYONE, OR TO FORCE FACEMASKS AND MANDATORY TEMPERATURE TAKING ON ANYONE.

And yet, the government is still doing this, and still pretending that it’s going to have to continue doing this for a very long time.

Why?

Because all this was planned by the Rockefeller Foundation, 10 years ago, to consolidate the power of the fascists who are really running the world, and who have all our politicians in their back pockets.

In the next post, God willing, I’ll bring together some more facts and stats on what is going on with COVID-19 worldwide.

But in the meantime – and before it gets taken down off Youtube – please go and listen to this interview from 2014, about the Rockefeller Foundation ‘scenario’ from 2010. It describes what would happen in China… it describes people being forced to wear facemasks…. it describes people being forced to submit to temperature probes just to go to the supermarket….

I.E., exactly what is going on today in Israel, with NO EVIDENCE -at all – that there is even a pandemic.

====

As I keep saying, 131 people die every single day in Israel, on average, when there is no COVID-19. We are still not even at the average daily number of deaths from COVID-19 in Israel, after they’ve been yelling ‘pandemic’ at us for a month, already.

So what the heck is really going on? Why crash the economy? Why make a million people unemployed? Why keep everyone locked up at home for a month and totally forbid religious freedom of any type?

====

And in case you need more convincing that this is genuine, you can see the slideshow that goes along with this document HERE.

And you can download the document yourself, or read it as a PDF, HERE.

====

And here’s an excerpt of that, describing the Rockefeller Foundation’s ‘LOCK STEP’ scenario, that we are now experiencing as ‘LOCK DOWN’ (check out the notes for Slide 18 on):

Scenario Narratives LOCK STEP

A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback.

“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months…”

“The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.” ….

“However, a few countries did fare better — China in particular. The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement, even locally, of mandatory quarantine for all citizens, as well as normally bustling shops and office buildings… saved millions of lives, stopping and customers..… enabling a swifter post- pandemic recovery….

“During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified.

“In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.”

(Emphasis mine.)

See THIS ARTICLE for more information.

Doesn’t this all just creep you out?

Especially as we are witnessing this ‘scenario’ play itself out in all it gory details right before our eyes, just minus the massive number of people who were meant to have died during this COVID-19 ‘pandemic’, because the Rav sweetened it all.

And that’s the single reason why more and more people are going to start waking up and realising that this whole things was planned from start to finish, to try to ‘enslave’ even more people and implement a eugenicist agenda of population control, where ‘undesirables’ like frum Jews and other ethnic minorities get taken in hand by the powers-that-be.

====

I know this sounds like bad sci-fi.

But I’m typing this having been locked down for a month, in Jerusalem, forbidden from going to the Kotel, or praying, and being pointlessly forced to wear a facemask and get zapped with a temperature gun every time I want to buy a tomato, just because 128 old people have died over the last 4-5 weeks.

The truth is currently way stranger than fiction.

And there is a battle for the soul of humanity going on.

UPDATE: USA’S NIH FUNDED CORONAVIRUS ‘RESEARCH’ IN WUHAN

The UK’s Daily Mail has just published an article where they demonstrate that the US, and specifically the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – headed by none other than Anthony Fauci – recently gave $3.7 million dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, to do research on Coronavirus in bats:

====

The selfsame Fauci CO-IN-CI-DEN-TAL-LY ‘warned’ back in 2017 that the Trump Administration would definitely have to deal with a ‘surprise’ pandemic:

====

====

Of course, Fauci and Billam Gates are directly connected to each other, and are both pushing ‘universal’ vaccines and a digital ID. See the Washington Times article HERE for a brief intro to just how intertwined they are. Here’s a snippet:

Now comes Fauci who serves as a member of the Leadership Council for the Global Vaccine Action Plan developed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, UNICEP and Fauci’s own NIAID — the plan that calls for a “Decade of Vaccines” to spread far and wide, all around the globe.

Now comes Fauci with this, as reported by Politico: “Coronavirus immunity cards for Americans are ‘being discussed.’”

====

I went to take a look at that Global Vaccine Action Plan – which is meant to cover the years 2011-2020 – and man, it’s creepy. Lots of stuff in there about upping ‘surveillance’ on people, and leveraging people’s medical records to ‘ensure compliance’, and other things I’ve been writing about recently.

Remember this, from HERE?:

Here’s what Bibi Netanyahu had to say about how he was trying to cash in on all of our private medical data being collected in Israel, to sell if off to big Pharma:

“This is a focused databank of the health records of almost each and every one of us over the last two decades,” he said at the time. “This is a great asset and we want to make it available to researchers, developers and companies in order to receive two things: Preventive medicine and personal medicine, personally calibrated for each person.

“Of course, this depends on the agreement of each person — this right is maintained absolutely. We are achieving a breakthrough here on a global level. The interest of global companies is very great. I have already met with many of them. They all want to come here, and rightly so. They see this as a new direction.” (emphasis mine)

====

Hey, whaddya know?

Bill Gates and Netanyahu are buddies! Take a look at THIS article, where you’ll see lots of pictures of them sitting right next to each other at the World Economic Forum at Davos in 2014.

Of course, Microsoft is a huge player in the Israeli hi-tech scene, and the links between Microsoft, the State of Israel and the spy agencies like the Mossad and Shin Bet run very deep.

====

But for now, let’s just stick with the can of worms I’ve already opened in this post, and return to Billam’s Global Vaccine Action Plan. I’ve screen-shotted it’s main recommendations, and ringed the parts that sound particularly Orwellian, so you can read this stuff for yourself, first-hand:

BTW, you might have a problem getting this video below to play. YouTube is apparently trying to prevent people from watching it. I wonder why…

[sarcasm off].

This is shmirat eynayim friendly.

====

Let’s remember that here in Israel, our very own Itamar Grotto – deputy head of the Health Ministry – is also on the WHO’s executive board. And let’s remember that this is the same guy who started pushing for a total lockdown of the Israeli economy – to last indefinitely – from day one.

Uh, based on WHAT evidence, exactly? Nobody knows.

And we’re all having to wear the stupid masks outside now because the same WHO that is funded by Billam Gates said that’s a good idea. And now, Gates is pouring even more money into the WHO:

Announcing an extra $150 million of funding from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help speed the development of treatments, vaccines and public health measures to tackle the new coronavirus outbreak, Melinda Gates said the WHO was “exactly the organization that can deal with this pandemic”.

====

Again, doesn’t this all creep you out?

There are just so many ‘coincidences’ in all this, it makes the head spin….

If Am Yisrael doesn’t get behind Rav Berland ASAP, I dread to think what happens next.

The last few weeks have been such a rollercoaster of emotions for all of us, haven’t they?

I was pretty chipper for the first 3 ½ weeks of this COVID-19 ordeal, not least because right from the start, I was relying on the Rav’s promise to sweeten it by Pesach, and also because I wasn’t letting all the Health Ministry’s propaganda scare the pants off me.

I wasn’t wiping things down as they entered my home, or using a UV light wand to ‘desanitize’ them. I’ve tried to come out of my home as much as I’m able to, given the horrible restrictions that we’ve been under during this lockdown.

I shunned the gloves and the alcogel cleanser. I hate the whole idea of wearing facemasks, and the only reason I just went and bought some now is because I don’t want to have to deal with the police if I’m out for a walk.

But I can tell you now: the facemask thing is not going to last more than another 2 days in Israel. I can already see that most people totally resent them, and they’re only going along with it because of the fines being threatened for non-compliance.

When all this ends, even ordinary, law-abiding citizens are going to be distrusting and hating the police and politicians so very much.

But I digress.

====

Seder night was actually really good – and I heard from a few other people that their Seder night was also surprisingly nice. When you don’t have to accommodate cranky relatives, or cook for 4 gazillion people, or worry that your kids don’t have new clothes, or the ‘right’ type of clothes for Seder, that takes so much pressure off.

But as I wrote over HERE, the following day a dark cloud of yeoush settled over me, and I began to feel like I was in prison, mamash. That feeling was exacerbated on Friday morning, when I tried to drive over to Mahane Yehuda – many hours after the overall ‘lockdown’ on Jerusalem was meant to have been lifted – to find some board games for my bored teens to play over Shabbat.

Everything was shut.

And in the meantime, I got stopped at a police checkpoint, who were stopping every single car. There was something about having to wind down my window, and having to say where I lived and where I was going that really got me so, so down.

What, is this the gestapo I’m dealing with here?!?

====

As Mahane Yehuda was a bust, I tried Romema, figuring that maybe the chareidi parts of town may have more going on.

If anything, it was even more deserted. I spotted a few solitary guys trying to do a minyan on opposite sides of the street, in accord with the retarded ‘social distancing’ rules, but otherwise it was a ghost town.

My heart sank.

I began to think that this horrible police state could be here to stay for a longggg time, God forbid.

====

My last shake of the dice was to try Talpiot, nearer to where I live. I went to the one store that was still open, that looked like maybe they might also have some games or toys stuffed underneath the toilet roll and deodorant – and an aggressive woman with her own mask under her chin stopped me at the door.

You can’t come in without a mask! She told me.

But that rule only begins on Sunday! I tried to argue.

But she wasn’t having any of it. Clearly, one of those people who totally holds by all the Health Ministry propaganda that says that other people are Public Enemy #1.

I felt so angry.

I begrudgingly bought a mask for 4 shekels, then even more begrudgingly got ‘shot’ – twice – with the guard’s ‘thermometer gun’, to check my temperature wasn’t over 38 degrees.

Clearly, the thing wasn’t working properly, because even though my blood was boiling, she still let me in.

I had the mask on – under my chin – resenting every second, and I really started to feel like if this is how life is going to be from now on, then bring on the COVID. Better to live like a mensch with Coronavirus than to subsist like a bemasked shadow, scared of every little interaction.

I didn’t find anything I needed.

====

On the way back home, the police stopped me again.

Again, with the stupid questions, where do you live, where were you just now, what did you buy….

I didn’t buy anything, I snapped back, finding it really hard to control myself. Everything is shut.

As she gave me back my teudat zehut, the policewoman told me, Geveret, don’t drive around too much. It’s dangerous. You need to be at home right now.

It took a superhuman effort for me to not roll my eyes so much you could actually hear them moving, and I nodded and smiled my tight smile.

As I drove off, I cursed all these institutions that have transformed Israel into Stalin’s Soviet Union, replete with bans on prayer gatherings and government approved ‘ghettos’ for religious Jews.

====

And then I got home… and I felt really, really down about what’s happening.

Is my kid just going to spend the next 10 months in bed, only waking up at 5pm because there is nothing to wake up for anyway?

Am I never going to be able to walk around again and talk to God freely? Is the Kotel always going to be off-limits? Are the police going to be able to intimidate me and harass me just for the ‘crime’ of trying to breathe some fresh air forever? When am I going to be able to take a hike in nature with a friend my own age again?

You know what I mean. I’m sure in your darkest moments, you’ve had similar fears bubble up.

For the next two days, this continued.

====

Then, two things happened:

  • I picked up a copy of the book You will succeed by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, and even the little bit I started reading profoundly changed my mood. In a nutshell, the whole book is just reassurance that God loves us, and that God can and does change things around in a nanosecond, so there is no reason to ever despair.

Those words worked on my so powerfully and so quickly, I made a decision to spend some of my ‘free time’ in lockdown translating the book into English, for the ravberland.com website.

Take that, yetzer hara!!!!

  • The second thing that happened is that I saw that all over the world, the numbers of people dying, or seriously ill with Coronavirus are now dropping, just as Rav Berland said they would start to do, post-Seder night. In Israel, they dropped from 13 people dying a day to 3 after chag, and yesterday it dropped to just 2.

This slide comes from the Worldometer site HERE, and it shows that there was a 27% drop in global deaths in the 5 days between April 5th and April 12th – this is massive news! (Or at least, it should be, if our media was being remotely honest in reporting what’s really going on here.)

chart showing the number of deaths from COVID-19

====

There is a lag going on here, because it takes 5 days (minimum….) for test results to come back, but the Coronavirus is already on the way out, however hard the Health Ministry is trying to persuade us that it isn’t.

Within a week, things COULD be back to normal-ish, at least in Israel where the death toll has anyway been ridiculously low. And if not, Grotto, Bar Siman-Tov and Netanyahu are going to really struggle to justify why not.

Even all the ‘anti-conspiracy theory’ people out there will start to smell a rat, if this state of affairs continues when no-one is dying anymore, and the numbers infected start to rapidly fall.

So, both of those things cheered me up tremendously.

====

Off the back of these two things, I realized I have to start planning ahead for the future, and to come out of the dark COVID-19 corridor I’ve been stuck in, the last month.

Today, I’m working on pulling together some blog posts to create The Secret Diary of a Housewife #2.

And, I also decided to giveaway a free copy of my People Smarts Stress Personality book, to anyone who makes a real promise to review it on Amazon, even just with the stars and no words, if I send it to them.

You can get it as a PDF, or as a Kindle version, so just email me, and I’ll send you a copy. Everyone who has read it has found it really helpful, and with all this ‘stress’ we’re all under now, I’m sure it will give you a lot of tools to start handling your – and other people’s – stress-induced meltdowns way better.

And the last thing I decided to do is to break the negative spiritual power of COVID-19 in my own life, by listing out some of the positives that have come about as a result of it.

====

I got up to 25 things, and they include the following:

  1. People are more open to real conversations now.
  2. God is starting to come back into the picture.
  3. It’s doing a thorough job of ‘birur’, and is really showing who has emuna and who doesn’t, appearances notwithstanding.
  4. It’s turned off the ‘rat race’ overnight. Life has slowed right down, now.
  5. It got rid of so much of the tarbut ra, or bad culture, including the bars, pubs, clubs and non-stop shopping.
  6. It’s severely reduced immorality. If you don’t live with someone right now, you can’t be with them. And that particularly applies to teenagers.
  7. It’s bringing the core family back together.
  8. It’s forcing people to deal with themselves, and to finally turn and face down their fears.
  9. It’s making some space for the ‘sound’ of the neshama to finally be heard a bit.
  10. Many people enjoyed their seder nights way more, without friends to entertain, or cranky extended family members to deal with.
  11. It’s creating a situation where we are seeing the true face of people and organisations, both for good and for bad.
  12. It’s breaking up the superficial ‘grasp’ of the world.
  13. It’s causing more and more people to start questioning the ‘official narratives’ about what’s really going on, and why, and it’s encouraging them to start thinking for themselves.
  14. It’s causing the public to hate the police.
  15. It’s causing the public to increasingly distrust the authorities.
  16. It’s causing the public to start questioning the media’s lies.
  17. It’s bringing people closer to God – like e.g., my family did kabbalat Shabbat together, Carlebach-style, this Friday night for the first time I ever remember. Usually, my kids just fall asleep on the couch until it’s time to eat.
  18. It’s creating more achdut – both ‘against’ COVID-19, and ‘against’ the anti-semitic authorities.
  19. It got a lot of people to seriously start contemplating aliya.
  20. It’s creating a more tznius, spiritual world that’s more ready to receive Moshiach.

That was general stuff. For me personally, I also added in things like:

  • I cleared the garden out.
  • We built a fire pit.
  • I got chickens.
  • I’m crocheting my husband a kippa for the first time in the 24 years we’ve been together.
  • I’m starting to appreciate the most basic things in life, like having water to drink, clean underwear, and fresh air to breathe without a sodding mask getting in the way.

====

It’s turning around! Hold on!

And when the ‘pseudo-normal’ reappears sometime next week, please just remember which Tzaddik is still toiling away in an Israeli prison cell, in order to keep sweetening the birth pangs of Moshiach, and get as many of us over the finish line as possible.

UPDATE:

The corrupt government, and the corrupt WHO-controlled Health Ministry is apparently going to lock us all down again until Sunday at 6am.

It’s so upsetting for so many reasons….

But what’s heartening is that I’m seeing that so many people out there are starting to wise up to the fact that there is something very fishy going on here. If the danger is so very great, why are so few politicians and journalists and police following social distancing rules and wearing masks in the course of their jobs?

Why have the government offices in Jerusalem continued to operate with full staff, even in their minor posts, as though it’s just another day, while totally wrecking the livelihoods of a million other people?

Why are the main places being tested for COVID-19 predominantly haredi neighborhoods where the population is way younger than the national average, while the nation’s nursing homes – just to quote one example – are mostly being overlooked?

In Egypt, the main way they prevented the Jews from leaving for the Promised Land was fear-based manipulation.

As it was then, so it is now.

When more of us raise this fallen fear about COVID-19 up to its root, and understand that only God decides who lives and who dies, and develop some true emuna and yirat shemayim…. that’s when we’ll finally get out of the prisons we’ve really just made for ourselves.

Once the blinkers are off, it’s easy to see what message COVID-19 is coming to give the Jewish community.

In the last message from Rabbi Eliezer Berland, given a week ago now, he was asked again whether COVID-19 would still disappear by Pesach, as he’d said in an earlier message, given that the corrupt State of Israel was still keeping him in prison despite having no case against him.

The Rav answered yes, and also said that COVID-19 would start to disappear outside of Israel too, where depending on what sources of information you hold by, the number of cases has either been deliberately inflated by corrupt organisations like the WHO and the CDC, OR, the disease has been far more virulent.

What’s clear is that within Israel, the number of people being seriously affected by COVID-19 has been absolutely minuscule, with around 100 people dying from it in over a month. When you remember that more than 130 typically die A DAY in Israel – regardless of COVID-19 – that puts all this into perspective, doesn’t it?

Whatever was meant to happen, Israel has clearly got off extremely lightly, in terms of fatalities.

====

And now today, the day after the 3 day chag, it’s obvious that the minuscule number of people dying from COVID in Israel has become even more minuscule, down from a ‘peak’ of 13 geriatrics a day before the chag to just 3 or 4 again.

And also the number of people who are ill enough to need intensive care has also dropped off, and has actually started to reduce. Yesterday, it was 180 people (ten times ‘chai’…) and today, it’s 174.

And despite the Health Ministry’s best efforts to try to whip up more panic and hysteria, the mood on the street here seems to be increasingly one of anger at the Government, defiance of the stupid rules, and disbelief that COVID-19 was the massive ‘pandemic’ the Health Ministry made it out to be.

The panic is coming off the boil here, even though the ghetto-isation of chareidi neighborhoods in Jerusalem is continuing, along with Bnei Brak, and even though Netanyahu, Itamar Grotto and Moshe Bar Siman-Tov are still issuing new diktats and false information all the time, in an effort to con us all into believing that we need Big Pharma to ride in to ‘rescue’ us from COVID-19 with a new universal vaccine and biometric ‘identity’ chip.

====

For sure, we all need rescuing, and ASAP.

But not from COVID-19.

Rather, from our totally corrupt, Godless, greedy politicians and the evil corporate interests and nasty billionaires they serve.

And you know who’s going to do that rescuing, don’t you?

Moshiach.

But there’s still a way to go, it seems, before we get to that stage of the process, and so I am writing today’s post in an attempt to try to ‘speed up’ that part of the equation, and to start spelling out some of the outstanding teshuva required for us to reach it.

====

Spiritually, everything that happens is just a message from God, for the Jews. Even when Coronavirus was ‘only’ happening in China, that was still a message for the Jews, that God wasn’t happy with something, and was starting to sound the alarm that a line was being crossed in some way.

And we have plenty of warning and hints of what that ‘line’ actually was.

I’m not going to rehash all the quotes from kabbalists and rabbis stating this, in this post, but the Coronavirus is attacking the frum community so notably because of all the lashon hara being spoken about Rabbi Berland, and also because of the awful, corrupt treatment of him by the State of Israel and the police which wasn’t publically protested by our rabbinic leaders.

Arguably, Rabbis in Israel had some justification for not coming out to bat for the Rav.

We live in a police state here, and anyone who publically came out against him faced the very real threat that they would be the subject of the next ‘frame up’ by the police here.

It happened to Rav Pinto, who now lives in Morocco. Those threats were also made against Rav Shalom Arush, who used to be an outspoken defender of the Rav but fell silent after he also got threatened. And the threats were also made against such illustrious tzaddikim as the late Milkman, zt’l, and also Rav Dov Kook.

Only the rabbis who had enough political ‘clout’ behind them to risk some open support for the Rav, notably like Rav Shimon Badani, spiritual head of the SHAS political party, could take the risk.

But, that certainly wasn’t true of the Torah leaders outside of Israel, all of whom stayed totally silent, as this latest awful episode of police brutality and anti-chareidi bias played itself out against the Rav and his community.

====

Weeks and weeks ago, Rav Chaim Kanievsky told us that Coronavirus was happening because of the sins of lashon hara, and because people aren’t careful with the mitzvoth of bein adam l’havero.

Rav Eliezer Berland himself also told us that Coronavirus was happening because people were disdaining the mitzvoth bein adam l’havero.

So many kabbalists, including Rav Pinto and Rav Amun, have explicitly linked the Coronavirus situation with the lashon hara spoken against Rabbi Berland, and the fact that he’s still languishing in prison FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON, while we ignore what’s happening and continue to slag him off.

It’s not the first time I’ve written things like this, but maybe, after a month of bidud, and after a taste of what’s in store for the world if more of us don’t make proper teshuva and get behind the Rav, perhaps these words will be more easily received now.

====

Why is there a decree now in Israel, for everyone to wear masks in public?

When people are ‘diagnosed’ with tza’arat, the disease you get when you are a chronic speaker of lashon hara, the Torah tells them they have to cloak themselves ‘up to their mustache’ when they go out in public, and to yell out ‘unclean, unclean’, to warn people to stay away from them.

The modern equivalent of this is that we now have to wear masks that cover our mouth and noses, whenever we go outside.

Do you think that’s a coincidence?

====

Also, if you look at the areas being ‘quarantined’ in Israel, and if you look past the government’s obvious anti-Semitism and misinformation, we find that Bnei Brak and the chareidi areas of Jerusalem house the communities and the rabbis who should have been behind Rabbi Berland 100%.

And instead, so many of them believed the false media reports, and the false accusations from the State of Israel to add their own slander against him, and the Shuvu Banim community. And now?

The same lying media, and the same anti-Semitic government and police have now come against them and their communities, too.

As the Rav is alone in a prison cell, unable to pray with a minyan, or use a mikvah, or move around freely, these communities have also been ‘locked down’, and are facing regular incursions, arrests and harassment for trying to keep mitzvoth.

Midda k’neged midda.

Do you think that’s a coincidence?

====

For years and years, I’ve been railing against the awful, anti-Semitic coverage of Rabbi Berland and Shuvu Banim that was prevalent across the media, but which particularly upsetting when found on the Yeshiva World News site.

Because the Yeshiva World News was meant to be frum. It was meant to be the standard bearer for the chareidi and chassidishe community in America, particularly those communities based in and around New York and New Jersey.

And yet the coverage of the Rav and Shuvu Banim has often been worse in terms of its pure lashon hara, outright lies and obvious bias than even the ‘secular’ news sites.

Today, Yeshiva World News is just one big mass of death notices and announcements due to COVID-19. There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has hit the frum community in America, and particularly so many of the leaders, whose followers are the main audience of the Yeshiva World News, really badly.

Out of all proportion, in fact.

To the point that the anti-semites in the USA are now increasingly saying that the frum Jews are responsible for bringing COVID-19 to America, and spreading it around.

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that the fact that Jews in America are now being arrested for daring to daven in a minyan, and that the anti-Semitic lashon hara against them and their communities is now starting to skyrocket, is also some form of midda kneged midda.

When you take the blinkers off, the message God is trying to give us right now is impossible to ignore.

====

In Israel, Seder night was the turning point, just as Rabbi Berland said it would be.

The numbers of deceased came down from a peak of 13 a day, and is now averaging just 3-4. The numbers of people in intensive care is starting to drop, the panic and hysteria about COVID-19 here feels like it’s evaporated overnight.

It’s a matter of days, before the mood against the government, and the Health Ministry, starts to solidify into one of anger, when people start to realize just what has been done to them, and their livelihoods, and their mental health, in the name of ‘COVID-19’.

I’m seeing the gathering signs of it already, in the comments from people who are starting to realise that Netanyahu, Grotto and Bar Siman-Tov – amongst others – took us all for mindless, gullible fools, that they could totally manipulate and lie to, without ever being held to account for their actions.

After all, governments and big business have been screwing the public over for years, why should they think that this whole COVID-19 ‘pandemic’ should be any different? Or that people should start to wake up and question the ‘narrative’ the mainstream media has been careful to spoon-feed them, in cahoots with corrupt politicians and Big Pharma?

But that is what’s starting to happen here in Israel, and also in other parts of the world.

====

The scales are falling from the eyes of people who would never have considered themselves ‘conspiracy theorists’, even just a short month ago, as they’ve seen one economy after another get wrecked by the draconian, ‘co-ordinated’ responses that are based on faulty guidelines and fake statistics from the Bill Gates-sponsored World Health Organisation.

Something massive has changed.

When the panic dies down in the rest of the world, too, there will be hundreds of millions of people demanding answers to what’s really gone on here, and when they get them, it won’t be pretty for the people who have deliberately created this COVID-19 ‘pandemic’.

But let’s be clear about something:

Tens of millions of people WERE meant to have died, over the last few months.

====

The fact that it’s barely 100,000 worldwide (and remember that 155,000 people die EVERY SINGLE DAY in the world, regardless of COVID-19) – is an open miracle.

Rabbi Berland sweetened this pandemic by taking on so much suffering and bizayon, exactly as he said he would do, for years.

If millions of people had started dying, the way all those projections that Bill Gates et al were running showed, none of us would be in any position to be sitting here, starting to catch all the lies that we’ve been told.

If so many people were dying, as expected, the manipulation and the international coordination wouldn’t have been anywhere near as obvious. As it is, even the lying media is starting to realise that they are straining their credibility past breaking point by continuing to write about ‘surges’ in deaths that equate to an extra 3 old people dying a week….

====

The world of lies is crumbling.

But if we want to be part of the world of truth that’s going to replace it, we have to make teshuva, and we have to own up to all the lashon hara we’ve been speaking, and all the lapses and flaws in our behavior, when it comes to the mitzvoth bein adam l’havero.

Now we’ve spent a month cooped up with our families, those flaws should be more obvious than they’ve ever been.

====

Back in January, Rav Pinto warned us that the world was going to have a shock on a par with 9/11. He was right.

Now, in his latest message, he’s warning of earthquakes and wars.

This process of the birthpangs of Moshiach is still in full-swing, and even after COVID-19 fades, there will be more ‘pangs’ and problems to deal with.

Rav Pinto also hinted very strongly that COVID-19 only happened, at least in Israel, because of how we treated Rav Berland, and because we didn’t complain when he was falsely imprisoned.

Rav Pinto clearly has ruach hakodesh, and we should be taking his words very seriously. If we want to get out of lockdown; if we want to have the best possible chance of making it into the world of truth and making it through the next load of ‘birthpangs’, we need to make some serious teshuva about how we relate to Rabbi Berland.

Because things are only going to get more complicated, here on in.
