The fear of ‘coronavirus’ is starting to recede in Israel.
And the fear of the government – and the police – is also starting to disintegrate.
If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that one thing I’m not usually guilty of is misplaced optimism. I try to keep things real, I try to keep things grounded in real emuna, as opposed to that fake ‘it’s all going to turn out great, with no teshuva, no prayer and no changes made’ stuff.
But it seems to me, something has really changed here now.
It’s the small things that give it away.
Here’s a little of what I’ve been noticing, over Purim Meshulash:
Nearly all the ‘Jewish’ (ahem….) news sites have now disabled comments on nearly all of their articles. The Jpost is a strange exception to that – I have a feeling it’s being used as a kind of bellwether by the power behind the throne, to gauge public real, unvarnished public sentiment so they can calculate their next moves here in Israel.
But from what I can see, the power of the media to keep telling us that black is white – and vice-versa – is crumbling with every new post going up.
We figured out so many of the lies and manipulations with ‘Covid 19’ reporting, and now more and more of us can spot the same tactics being used with things like this strange ‘oil spill’; and the convenient ‘aggression’ from Iran.
There’s massive pushback happening against ‘green passports’, massive pushback happening against curfews, massive pushback happening against ‘social distancing’.
I heard megillah in two different places this year, and no-one asked for a green passport.
I didn’t wear a mask in either of my megillah readings, either, and while I was definitely more the exception than the rule, no-one told me to put one on.
More and more, I see people walking around outside mask-less.
So many of those who were scared to death, literally, by fearmongering propaganda about Covid-19, got the shot, and now are sleeping easier at night.
That makes them less likely to attack other people like Coronavirus pitbulls, and for that alone, I guess it’s a good thing.
And many, many others literally just don’t care anymore.
The police are barely giving tickets out for anything, here.
Even in Jerusalem, that was meant to be ‘locked down’ with a night-time curfew 3 nights in a row – so many people just ignored it.
One of my kids even managed to hitchhike, with 2 friends, out of Jerusalem to some Purim ‘affair’ out in the sticks in the middle of the night.
Others of the young people who frequent my house went down to Mahane Yehuda yesterday – with thousands of others – and ‘pushed back’, peacefully, against the police by basically refusing to budge from Mahane Yehuda, and to just keep coming in again, when they were thrown out.
Don’t imagine for a moment that this is happening because the police here are ‘nice’.
As an institution, they are violent psychopaths, same as the politicians and senior bureaucrats directing them.
But they get their ‘power’ from the people, and the people are increasingly not listening, and not interested.
The ‘spell’ is breaking up all over the place, and more and more of us are seeing through the lies, and understanding that the police, the government, the army, the media – they aren’t our friends.
And they never really were.
Yesterday, thousands of chareidim walked miles and miles up the motorway, to get to Jerusalem on Purim Meshulash.
The government at the last minute pulled all the buses, both inside the city and intercity, for Jerusalem.
Do you know what sort of spiritual ‘koach’ came down for the good side, when all these Jews started walking 15 miles on Purim Meshulash, just to get to the holy city?
On the more ‘secular’ side of things, there were Purim parties being held up and down the country.
Ok, people got puking drunk, and they weren’t so tznius – but spiritually, hundreds of thousands of apparently ‘secular’ young Jews dafka went against the government’s rules to celebrate Purim.
They connected back to yiddishkeit, even at a very low level, to give all this ‘coronavirus propaganda’ and fearmongering two fingers.
That’s very meaningful, spiritually.
We aren’t out of the woods just yet.
The evil government, the evil State, is holding back because in order to keep the illusion of ‘democracy’ going just a little while longer – just enough to get everyone ‘encouraged’ to jab themselves with an experimental gene therapy with unknown and potentially massive negative side effects – they can’t send the police out onto the streets in full diktator style.
At least, not before the next election, on March 23, 2021.
But it’s clear that the ‘vaccination’ campaign has now gone as far as it’s going to go, without diktator-style violent coercion.
Whoever bought the line, whoever was overcome by panic and fear, whoever was pressured into participating in Pfizer’s mass medical experiment – they lined up and had the shot already.
But everyone else – at least half the country – is just not playing the game anymore.
After Israel’s second recent election (out of 4…), I wrote this:
Here’s a snippet:
A little while back, this site ran THIS interview with Rabbi Eliyahu Meirav, where he gave his eye-witness account of Rav Kaduri saying 40 years ago that Moshiach is imminent:
“When there will be will elections, but there won’t be a government.”
It seems that could be happening twice in a row, and that a third election (without any government being formed…) could conceivably be on the cards.
And that reminded me of this, from the Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 98a:
Rabbi Simlai says in the name of Rabbi Elazar, son of Rabbi Shimon: The son of David will not come until all the judges and officers will cease to exist from among the Jewish people, and there will be no more autonomous government in Eretz Yisrael, as it is stated: “And I will turn My hand against you and purge away your dross as with lye and take away your base alloy. And I will restore your judges as at the first” (Isaiah 1:25–26).
There’s more. A little later on, Sanhedrin 98a continues:
Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma’s students asked him: When will the son of David come? Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma said: I am hesitant to answer you, lest you request from me a sign to corroborate my statement. They said to him: We are not asking you for a sign.
Rabbi Yosei ben Kisma said to them: You will see when this existing gate of Rome falls and will be rebuilt, and will fall a second time and will be rebuilt, and will fall a third time. And they will not manage to rebuild it until the son of David comes.
That Gate of Rome is the government, the whole political process, the State and it’s evil institutions.
It seems to me, there will be no ‘4th election after all.
Or that if there is, that’s kind of the last act, the swansong of the State of Israel, before it totally crumbles into dust, ahead of Moshiach finally being revealed.
Rebbe Nachman taught that Moshiach takes over peacefully, without firing a shot.
One day, more and more us suddenly ‘wake up’, and realise that the world is just one big lie after another, and that we don’t need to obey rules telling us to wear masks, or to avoid giving our loved ones hugs, or to have a piece of green paper in order to daven.
One day, more and more of us see through all the lies, all the manipulation, all the propaganda – and then our souls start to soar free, and all the evil disappears.
Because it only gets its power from us.
From we, the people.
Ein lanu Melech – we have no King – except for Hashem.
There is no ‘King Bibi’.
There are no Iranian nukes that can touch us, if Hashem doesn’t will it.
There is no pandemic.
All of this is just an illusion, to get us all to make teshuva, and to return wholeheartedly to God.
Over Shabbat, I read the ‘Purim’ part of Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s book on Jewish Holidays.
There was so much relevant stuff in there, so many awesome hints to what is happening today, it’s hard to know where to start. But the part that I wanted to share in this post is where the Rav says – repeatedly – that all of these evil people, these evil decrees, all the ‘bad’ in the world – we create it all with our own sins.
And if we, the people, make the teshuva we need to make – to identify our own bad middot, and to ask God to start to eradicate them – all the evil disappears by itself.
There is everything to play for here.
And on some fundamental level, hope is starting to blossom in Israel, despite all the draconian diktatorship, all the lies, all the spiritual oppression.
Let me leave you with this, the last message from Rav Berland before he left prison, shortly before Purim:
“THERE IS NO MORE CORONA!
Gomarnu, it’s finished, the Corona is finished. There is no more Corona.
“Now, we are building the Beit HaMikdash. Now, this is the most critical moment.
Everyone is lighting candles here, just a little longer and there will be kiddush.
Just a little longer, and there will be dancing until the light of day.”
Hold on just a little longer.
The light is starting to shine.
The tanker is turning around.
And geula the sweet way is mamash on the doorstep – if we, the people, are holding on to the True Tzaddikim, and working on our own bad middot.
After reading this article (below), which explains how it’s at least possible that the leadership of the Jewish community has been hijacked – for millenia! – by pretend Jewish ‘Sabean-Mandeans‘:
A reader sent me this news story:
« Next week, [March 5, 2021] the Pope will hold a service the Vatican has named “Prayer for the sons and daughters of Abraham”. Reuters reported that the “inter-religious prayer service will be attended by Christians, Muslims, Mandaean-Sabaean, Yazidi and other religious minorities present in Iraq. »
These people are still very much alive and kicking, and the Pope is probably one of them.
