Personally, I’m really struggling with the mask thing.

I’ll keep this short, as I have a lot of stuff I’m working on at the moment, but the whole mask thing is REALLY difficult for me. I literally can’t breathe in it, and I have a 5 minute tolerance for being able to wear it.

Baruch Hashem, I don’t have to work out the house, in an environment where the health fascists are forcing everyone to wear it 24/7.

That would be awful, and if you are in that position, my heart goes out to you.

But here in Israel, the fines for not wearing masks keep going up.

First it was 200 nis, now it’s 500 nis, and Rav Berland recently said it’s going to go up to 1000 nis.

So *everyone* is kind of being worn down by the health fascists, and it’s getting harder and harder to not wear the mask outside, for a lot of reasons.

It’s a decree of the King, as I wrote about HERE.

====

But in the meantime, we have to keep reminding ourselves that it’s totally mad, and to not buy into the mask propaganda.

Minimise the mask-wearing any and every chance you get, without getting yourself in trouble.

This situation is probably going to continue until November 9th, 2020, so we need to pace ourselves carefully, and not spend the next 5 months in a state of hypertension about all the bad, crazy things going on.

It will end well, if we stay close to God and his true Tzaddikim, alive and dead.

But in the meantime, do whatever you have to do to keep your head down as each wave of madness smashes over the world, and to not be taken out by it totally.

To that end, watch this 5 minute video (of just listen to the audio, as it’s a woman speaking, your choice) – and understand why wearing face masks is very unhealthy, and why if the world was sane, we’d be able to sue the pants of the Ministry of Health and the politicians for pushing this ‘law’ on us.

As it is, we’ll have to wait for the evil to break apart, before we can really take the mask off for good.

Once evil is unmasked, that is what is going to happen.

But probably not for another 5 months.

So pace yourself carefully, up your hitbodedut, work on your emuna, buy some of the Rav’s books, say some of his prayers.

And watch this.

In every marathon, there comes a point where we ‘hit the wall’.

In running parlance, it’s that moment when you literally feel like you’ve totally run out of energy, and you can’t continue a second longer.

There’s a bunch of technical explanations for why that happens, but basically your standard reserves of energy deplete, and then, unless the body can access it’s deeper resources, you collapse in a puddle, unable to move forward.

As with the body, so with the soul.

Yesterday night, I ‘hit the wall’ spiritually.

God, I can’t continue like this any more, trying to run away from ‘COVID-19’ and the evil police state 24/7…

Not that I haven’t been trying.

====

Since all this started kicking off back in February, I’ve been engaged in one long, extended stress response to what’s going on, after another.

I’ve raged and ranted and actively tried to resist = ANGER.

I’ve also run away – about 32 different times – to different spots all across the country, where the rules are a little more relaxed, and I can get away with breathing fresh air and not wearing a face mask = FLIGHT.

I’ve had moments of black despair, where I couldn’t summon the will to even get out of bed (at least, for a couple of hours…) because the picture just looks so bleak, and depressing, and I’ve felt so powerless to change anything = FREEZE.

But the one thing I HAVEN’T done is try to ignore ‘the problem’ – as ginormous as it’s looming – to just try and pretend that it’s business as usual, and everything will be OK. That superficial, everything-is-A-OK sort of BS is a typical FLATTER response, and as you might have noticed, I have very little ‘FLATTER’ in my personality.

But yesterday, I hit the wall on the other 3 stress responses, which means that FLATTER is what I’ve got left to try, going forward.

====

In the People Smarts personality system, I spelled out how these 4 stress responses are the often negative ‘flip side’ of some very positive character traits.

ANGER = MOTIVATION, on the positive side.

FLIGHT = CONNECTION

FREEZE = PHILOSOPHICAL THINKING, and

FLATTER = BUILDING.

Building doesn’t just mean that you go out and build a house, or a barn, or a shed. It means all those grounding, nurturing, stabilising activities that are often so very gashmius, but which are nevertheless a crucial part of being able to function in the world without going bonkers.

As you might have noticed, I’ve had very little of that BUILDING stuff going on recently, as I had a massive reaction to lockdown which saw me scuddering off into FLIGHT anyway I can, while I can still move 100 metres beyond my house, without getting ‘permission’ from the corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.

And so, I crashed.

====

This morning, I realised I have to make a few big changes to my priorities.

I will still be commenting on current affairs as and when I feel the need, but in terms of unpicking COVID-19 – I’m going to leave that to others for now.

Because while other people can go and look up THE FLEMING FUND, and then can go and read articles about NSO Group’s ‘Pegasus‘ phone spying software (that is definitely on your SmartPhone already, make no mistake, and being used already, regardless of any official ‘legislation’ enabling the ShinBet to do that legally, please don’t fool yourself) – and they can also look up NSO Group’s ‘FLEMING’ technology, and can start to question those CO-IN-CID-ENCES themselves, and join some dots themselves….

No-one else can write One in a Generation #3.

And that’s what is really going to make all the difference here, between the ‘Great Reset’ happening their way, or happening the Moshiach and geula-coming-the-sweet-way, way.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this, (shmirat eynayim friendly).

====

====

Here’s something else I realised this morning:

I have to take the plunge, and get the Rav’s books printed in Israel.

It’s going to cost a small fortune, but now that the corrupt Israeli police made it next to impossible to raise funds, legitimately, for things like printing the Rav’s books without risking an ‘interview’ with the Shin Bet, what can I do?

The plan is to try to print 100 of each of the Rav’s books, here in Israel, and then see if we can sell them.

My husband is already panicking that we’re going to be tripping over boxes of ‘Advice’ and ‘Miracles’ for the next 12 years – but I’m more optimistic than that.

I know that sooner or later, the penny will drop that getting behind the Rav, and learning his Torah, and spreading his light, is the best – and increasingly only – option we have, for really fighting the forces of evil in the world.

The Rav himself said that getting his books out there is destroying all the tumah and evil in the world, and each time a new book comes out, I see another surprising development occurs very shortly afterwards.

“There is such great dinim and tumah in the world, but my books and my writings, the Torah and the prayers, are cleaning and purifying all the judgments and the tumah from the world.”

====

FOR EXAMPLE.

Last week, Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s Advice for Success and Happiness came out on Amazon.

That same day, Jeffrey Epstein came back into the headlines, as all the evil, yukky people connected to him – and this whole massive COVID-19 scam – started to be put back into the spotlight.

Today, Ghislaine Maxwell got arrested.

That is huge.

It’s going to affect everything, I don’t know how, but I just know it will.

So, I’m getting back on with the job of getting the Rav’s books written and printed, and then we’ll just watch all this evil implode by itself, shall we?

Because at this point, I have run out of energy to do anything else.

====

You might also like this article:

 

 

I know everyone’s brain is fried out, so let’s make this as simple as possible.

Today, the Ynet website reported that the State of Israel has now conducted more than a million COVID-19 tests.

====

This is a crucial piece of information.

Over on the Worldometer website HERE, we can see that the total number of Coronavirus cases in Israel, as of July 1, 2020, stands at:

25,547

Now, let’s do the maths.

25,547 cases divided by 1,000,000 tests = an infection rate of just 0.0255, or approximately 2.5%.

====

Now, let’s do some more maths.

As of July 1, 2020, the mortality from COVID-19 (which only kills old people with existing serious health conditions) is just 320 deaths since the first death occurred on March 20, 2020 – that’s a 100 days ago.

If 320 people are dying per million people in Israel, and the Israeli population is approximately 8.9 million, that means that 2,880 old, sick people in total could die in Israel from COVID-19 in total, if everyone caught it.

To put this another way, the MORTALITY rate for COVID-19 per million people is just: 0.032%.

If you go to the CDC website HERE, you’ll see that the average mortality rate for an average flu in the US is 2%.

COVID-19 is killing way less than a quarter of the people who die from flu, in an average year.

DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A ‘PANDEMIC’ TO YOU?

====

There is clearly something else going on here, some other agenda.

Three days ago, I tripped over a whole load of information – hidden in plain view – which explains a little more of what is really happening, and why.

After that research, I got a migraine for two days….

All this is so very heavy.

And all this can so easily stress me out of my eyeballs, dint my joie de vivre and take me away from feeling Hashem’s kindness and love.

None of that is helpful.

So, while I’m figuring out what God really wants me to be doing with all this information that I just keep gathering and gathering and gathering, I decided that the main thing I have to work on is nullifying myself to Hashem’s will.

It’s really hard.

Particularly around the subject of face masks, because I know it’s totally BS, and based on a falsified COVID ‘pandemic’ that really isn’t.

But what else can I do, right now?

I’m running out of energy to keep pointing out the obvious. Either more people will see what’s going on, and acknowledge that something is very wrong with this picture, or they won’t.

And then, either more people will start to realise that getting behind our true tzaddikim – especially Rav Berland – is the only way to really be able to stand up in this test, or they won’t.

====

In the meantime, I’m continuing to pack in ‘real life’ as much as I can, into every day.

So today, I went wading through a desert stream near Jerusalem with a couple of friends, which was totally awesome.

For as long as we can, we must.

We only have today.

And we all need to maximise this opportunity to fill our souls up with fresh air and emuna as much as possible, before the next stage begins.

And that could be any day soon.

====

UPDATE:

I just got sent this over email, by one of my favorite correspondents:

Hang in there. It’s getting stranger and stranger. I don’t know about you but for some reason I actually feel more at home with “strange” than with “not-strange.” Rabbi Manis Friedman said, a few months ago, within all this, that “soon, we are going to see evil in places where we never thought to see evil, and good in places where we never thought we’d see good. It’s going to look real bad, but not to worry. When the evil has so much self-confidence that it reveals itself openly, that’s it’s downfall. It can only exist when it’s not seen. Its pride is causing it to fall…”

And now, I’ve just read the piece my correspondent linked to, which is also a very important read.

In a nutshell, the reason so many people are blindly going along with all the lies we’re being told is because they are operating from a place of constricted consciousness, or mochin de-katnut. 

But God wants us to move out of that immature mental state, and into mochin de-gadlut, or expanded consciousness, ahead of Moshiach showing up.

And the COVID con may just be the thing that’s finally going to get humanity to grow up, and to become the spiritual, wise and compassionate people God designed us to be.

You can read the piece HERE – it describes what’s going on in emotional / psychological parlance, but it’s basically describing the mechanism of why we are stuck in mochin de-katnut, and what it’s going to take to move to mochin de-gadlut.

And then when you’re done, check this out, too:

Are you questioning the dominant narrative?

Check out questioningcovid.com, where clinicians, researchers, and health experts from around the world are interrogating the mainstream narrative around the pandemic.

====

Here’s a snippet from that piece, on the KellyBroganMD website:

So what is it that doesn’t make sense?

Is it:

  • that many medical experts have actually downgraded the potential threat of Covid-19 from initial projections by orders of magnitude, including Dr. Anthony Fauci himself, in a New England Journal of Medicine report where he wrote that “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) …” yet we are seeing unprecedented, draconian style control measures being implemented by executive order?

  • that there were staged planning events in October 2019 including Urban Outbreak and Event 201nationwide CDC Quarantine Program job postings from November of 2019, a coronavirus patentWorld Bank pandemic bonds, well in advance of when this pandemic supposedly started, and spontaneously erupted and disseminated globally in a manner that could never be explained through person to person contagion?

  • that doctors are being told to code all deaths as covid without so much as the facade of testing when up to 99% of case fatalities are in individuals with multiple pre-existing conditions, the vast majority of them elderly?

  • that hospitals are supposedly full to the brim with intubated patients when hospital staff are being laid off or furloughed, and whistleblowers are speaking to iatrogenic harm and death (including through intubation) being systematically committed by physicians?

  • that the plan for “return to normal” is being dictated by an unelected software technocrat who happens to also fund GMOs (including non-meat synthetic products), 5G, all of the labs currently working on the vaccine, implantable tracking devices, and the WHO?

  • that people were dying en masse from all manner of preventable illnesses ranging from obesity to hunger to properly prescribed medications with no historical precedent for governmental intervention around these far deadlier epidemics, but now we are to believe that the government cares so much about us that it will “keep us safe” even against our will?

  • that we should consent to be traced and tracked as law-abiding, healthy civilians even when convicted felons and many sex offenders are not?

  • that facial coverings ranging from a scarf to a reused surgical mask with mm pore sizes are going to “keep out” what we are calling a virus which is nm in diameter? 1

  • that mask-wearing has been enforced when the Surgeon General, the WHO and even Fauci say to not wear them, and elected officials congregated on television have never worn them?

  • that Walmart, Target, and Costco are open while small businesses, parks, and beaches have been shuttered since March 14th, many of which will remain permanently closed due to the irreversible economic impacts of the shutdown?

  • that the list of the virus’s associated symptoms have grown and changed, all the while without there being unequivocal evidence of the virus’s point-of-origin in isolation in Wuhan or proof of global contagion?

  • that 5G networks are being installed during a time of “essential work only” in every major metropolitan area while we are quarantined in our homes?

  • that the immune system thrives on diversity of exposure, sunlight, time in nature and in loving company of others, but we are being told to hide alone, indoors?

  • that 30 million people in this country alone have suddenly lost their jobs through “essential business” restrictions, however there happened to be a 1000 page piece of legislation spontaneously prepared to institute the roll out of a system of government handouts and cashless currency?

  • that numbers of cases are determined through testing methods that do not confirm Covid-19, have tested positive in fruit and animals, and which the test inventor said should not be used to identify a specific disease?

Rabbenu famously taught that even ‘stupid words’ – mila de’shtuta – have a spiritual value.

It’s slow posting on the blog at the moment, for a few different reasons. I’m collecting the material for OIAG3, and that is taking a lot of time (and also, getting a lot of things to start moving, behind the scenes….).

And I’m also trying to make the most of every moment before the Three Weeks begins, to get out of the house and visit kivrei Tzaddikim, and to do a bunch of things that have been on my list for a long time, before the authorities use the fake Corona ‘second wave’ to try to close it all down again.

And lastly, I have so very much to write, so very much to share, that I kind of don’t know where to start.

====

We’re all totally in limbo at the moment.

Stuck between what was, and what will be.

And that’s a very hard place to be in, mentally. Human beings do so much better, mentally, when they have some form of certainty – even when it’s ‘bad’ – than when they have no idea what’s coming next, and how to try to prepare themselves mentally for it.

So, that’s why we’re all stressed and atzbani at the moment – frustrated, upset, angry, lacking patience.

It’s totally normal and natural to be feeling this way right now, so let’s all keep giving ourselves – and others – a break.

That still means we apologise when we act like a nob to other people, and that we take responsibility for our actions, but in a laid-back way that doesn’t dramatise stuff, over over-hype things.

No big deal. Really.

Even if it really is the end of the world.

====

A really helpful part of this coping strategy is what Rabbenu calls ‘stupid words’, or mila de-shtuta.

The Na-Nach guys are really good at mila de-shtuta. They’ve taken this part of Rabbenu’s Torah, and raised it to an art-form, as you can you can see a little in the clip below:

 

====

Here’s what Rabbenu says in Likutey Moharan 2:24:

Mitzvah gadoleh l’hiot b’simcha – it’s a great mitzvah, to be happy at all times, and to invest all of our effort into banishing sadness and depression. All illnesses that befall a person are solely caused by a lack of joy…..

….And though a broken heart is very precious, this should be contained to a specific time. One should set aside a specific time everyday to break one’s heart and express oneself before God, as brought elsewhere. But one should be joyous for the rest of the day. One can more easily fall into depression from a broken heart, than one came become frivolous on account of happiness, for the distance between a broken heart and depression is less.

Therefore, one must be happy at all times, except for the specific time at which one should have a broken heart.

====

So, in our hitbodedut, that’s the time to feel all the pain around the Coronavirus scam, all the corruption in Israel and elsewhere, all the evil billionaires, all the blind sheeple, the fact that the Rav is still in prison…

And to even cry about all these things.

But then, the other 23 hours a day, we have to brush ourselves off, and make EVERY EFFORT to pull ourselves out of feeling broken-hearted about the state of the world.

That’s where dancing and clapping come in.

I challenge you to spend even a minute dancing to this, below, and you’ll see how it instantly lifts your mood:

====

The spiritual reason for this is that dancing and clapping ameliorates the harsh spiritual judgments at their root, as he explains in Lesson 1:169 of Likutey Moharan:

When there are troubles, whether collectively or personally, it is impossible to dance….

…[A]meliorating judgments is accomplished by a person judging himself. In other words, we must judge and assess ourselves, by ourselves, about everything that we do – for everythingwhether it was appropriate to act like that. We must analyze our actions and improve them appropriately, in line with the law and judgment of the Torah.

By judging and assessing oneself, one ameliorates and nullifies judgment Above, for, “When there is judgment below, there is no judgment Above. And when judgment is ameliorated, the blood leaves the feet, and joy can then spread through them, moving a person to dance.

In other words, the dancing is a type of spiritual short-cut, that ameliorates judgments Above.

And when we can’t dance – or don’t dance – it’s because we are weighed down by spiritual judgments.

====

And then, there’s the mila de-shtuta stuff, too.

Rabbenu talks about that in Lesson 2:48 – which is really a beautiful lesson, about not despairing about what’s going on, and not giving up on ourselves, and just continuing to strengthen ourselves again, and again and again, and to not believe that God is rejecting us, and our prayers and our service.

BH, if I have time I will try to copy it out in full below, as an update to this post.

But in the meantime, here’s the nugget that’s most relevant to now:

[L]ive with the lesson in Likutey Moharan 1:282 [aka AZAMRA!], which is to search and seek and find within ourselves some merit, some good point. And with this good point that we find within ourselves, to rejoice and encourage ourselves. We should not give up on what we’ve already attained [spiritually], even if we’ve fallen away from it to wherever we have fallen.

Even so, we should encourage ourselves with the little bit of good that we still find within ourselves, until in this way, we merit to return completely to God, so that all the intentional sins will be transformed to merits (Yoma 86b).

From what the Baal Shem Tov did at sea, when the Evil Inclination tried to confuse him, we can understand how much we must encourage ourselves not to despair of ourselves, no matter what happens to us.

The most important thing is to be happy at all times, making ourselves happy in any way possible, even by means of foolishness, acting like a fool and doing foolish and merry-making things. Or simply jumping and dancing in order to reach joy, which is a very great thing.

====

Ad kan, Rabbenu.

I know it’s hard at the moment. I know it’s tough. I’m feeling the strain myself too, believe me. That’s why I keep running off to Kivrei Tzaddikim every day or two, and trying to make an effort to dance for at least 5 minutes most days (but especially when I’m starting to feel down), and also, why I’m giving myself permission to watch videos like this, below (shmirat eynayim friendly).

====

====

Whatever is going to keep my ‘happy’ and functioning, that’s what I’m going to do right now.

Until the evil starts to fall all by itself.

And trust me, dear reader. That point is so much closer than it currently looks.

We just need to hold on a tiny bit longer.

====

PS: If you’re emailing me, and I haven’t responded, give me a little time to come back to you. I have a lot on my plate at the mo, so even responding to emails is a little more than I can manage at the moment. Thank you!

====

 

 

Remember, Rav Pinto said there was going to be a ‘big’ earthquake?

While the corrupt MSM isn’t reporting anything much, except fake news about Coronavirus and more fake news about ‘peace plans’ and Black Lives Matter protests, there are actually some big things happening in the world.

BH, Dutchsinse came back online to record what’s going on with the seismic activity, over the last week.

If you don’t know who Dutchsinse is, he’s a Youtuber who figured out how to forecast earthquakes – totally disproving all the fake, mainstream science about how the world operates, geologically-speaking – so he was forced offline at the beginning of the year, in a million different ways.

But God bless him, he’s back.

====

Here’s his latest video, (20 mins) explaining what’s going on this week:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHE92x768p8h-fMrqhsnE1Q

(It doesn’t seem to be displaying properly – this is one of the ways being used to reduce the number of viewers he gets. Sigh.)

====

If you don’t want to watch, here’s a rundown of this week’s unusual earthquakes, that the MSM is barely mentioning:

16 June, 2020 – 4.6 quake in Japan

18.6 June, 2020 – Very large 7.4 quake strikes near New Zealand

June 19: An earthquake swarm of 4,500 quakes (and counting…) begins in Iceland.

It’s still ongoing, it included a 5.8 quake on June 21, and there is a strong possibility that the Grímsvötn volcano – which last erupted in 2011, grounding all airplanes for the best part of a week – could erupt again soon. This is what happened then:

====

23 June, 2020: Very large quake strikes in Mexico.

24 June, 2020: Large 5.8 earthquake strikes in California – very close to China Lake.

This last one made me REALLY happy, because China Lake is where so much of the awful MKULTRA / child trafficking stuff was going on, until God put an end to it (at least in that location…) last year, when He sent the biggest quake California had seen on July 4, 2019 directly to the ‘secret’ Naval base at China Lake.

The base got wrecked, and rendered inoperable.

====

Then two days later, Jeffrey Epstein got arrested.

And then, he got either murdered, or pretend-murdered / pretend-suicided, and the story kind of died again.

But guess what?

Now it’s coming back into the headlines.

====

The following quotes comes from THIS article, which appeared on June 18, 2020:

“In an interview with Consortium News, former Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe said Epstein did not work with Mossad. “Military intelligence was who he was working with,” said Ben-Menashe. “Big difference,” he said. “He never worked with Mossad, and Robert Maxwell never did, either. It was military intelligence….

….Just before Ben-Menashe spoke to Consortium News on Monday, he said he had received an angry telephone call from Israel’s Channel 13 television station.

“They called me, and they went wild: ‘What, you believe Israel would use little girls? You are saying that? You are insulting the nation, you are making us anathema around the world.’ I said, ‘The truth is the truth.’ And Jeffrey Epstein’s story is something that nobody wanted to hear. He was working with the Israelis, he was working with Maxwell,” Ben-Menashe said.

He added: “It’s a very bad story, and I can see why the Israelis are so concerned about it. I believe [Channel 13] were expressing anger, and I believe this was a message. I don’t like messages like that… it has to do with the timing and these stories coming out about Epstein. They [Israel] are starting to become anathema to the world, this adds to it — the Epstein story.”

====

The quakes and Epstein are directly connected.

Les Wexner and Epstein are directly connected.

Epstein and Israeli Military Intelligence are directly connected.

Israeli Military Intelligence has the acronym: HAMAN. This is from Wikipedia:

The Israeli Intelligence Corps (Hebrewחיל המודיעיןHeil HaModi’in), abbreviated to Haman (Hebrewחמ”ן) is an Israel Defense Forces corps which falls under the jurisdiction of IDF Directorate of Military Intelligence (Aman) and is responsible for collecting, disseminating, and publishing intelligence information for the General Staff and the political branch.

====

HAMAN is behind so much of what’s going wrong in Israel right now, including all the Coronavirus stuff, all the hi-tech tracking, all the attempts to demonize the chareidi community, and of course, the re-arrest and ongoing persecution of Rav Berland.

If you go HERE, Wikipedia kindly lists all the people who were the former heads of Unit 8200.

Unit 8200 – ‘AMAN’ – includes HAMAN.

Here’s a partial list:

====

Here’s another interesting article, describing how Ehud Barak and Epstein are linked, and how Barak recieved $2.3 million from the Wexner Foundation, via Epstein, who also invested $1 million in Barak’s own hi-tech company, Carbyne:

====

Carbyne is VERY pleased about the Coronavirus pandemic, and is viewing it as a great opportunity to promote it’s technology, further afield. Here’s a little snippet from its website:

As each state is working its way to gradually go back to restore civic normality, it will have to present interactive ways of communications that will enable it to effectively manage its emergency operations and the public in order to prevent the re-emergence of COVID-19 or at least mitigate it in ways it wasn’t able to do before.

THE SOLUTION

Carbyne’s cloud native c-Live Universe+ platform can be deployed seamlessly and instantaneously to emergency call centers(911,311), health centers, remote doctors and the state government and creates a unified awareness center that provides
unprecedented interoperability, analytics, as well as protection to both citizens and first responders.

====

To put this in plain English, the Carbyne ‘solution’ is to use your iPhone to gather information and snitch on every aspect of where you are located, what you are doing at the time of the call, and to stream ‘video’ of the caller – without your permission! – straight to their databases. You have no say on what info is being gathered about you, not what is being done with it, and that info will then be ‘seamlessly matched’ to all your personal medical information, too, giving Big Brother a pretty thorough picture of some very personal aspects of your life and health.

Genius!

====

Nearly all the hitech ‘success stories’ in Israel are being run by graduates of Unit 8200, who basically parlay their experience in the army, and the connections they make, into million and even billion dollar businesses.

All that nifty tracking technology that the State of Israel is just dying to unleash on the unsuspecting public, in the name of COVID-19? it’s all been built and monetized by former Unit 8200 graduates – aka Israel Military Intelligence, aka HAMAN – who stand to make an absolute killing, financially, if their technology is rolled out nationally and globally.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of what is really going on here is making me pretty queasy.

====

A little while ago, the BreakingIsraelNews website (of Purim shpiel fame) ran this story:

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/151803/israels-deep-state-agents-trained-in-special-school-in-harvard-ngo-asserts/

Here’s a few pertinent quotes from that:

[Im Tirtzu] recently investigated a little known program at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University that hosts rising stars within Israel’s public sector for a year long course in “leadership”. The program is sponsored by the Wexner Foundation. The foundation was founded by billionaire lingerie mogul Les Wexner and late pedophile Jeffery Epstein sat on its board of trustees. Israeli politicians who have helped advance The Wexner Foundation’s mission and programs include former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and the late Shimon Peres….

….[A]ll of the expenses for the trip to Boston, the Harvard degree, the room and board are all paid for by the Israeli government in what he calls: “the biggest corruption scam in the Israel’s history.”

“This can lead to a million shekels ($291,000) per student, all at the expense of Israeli taxpayers.” Additionally, all of the program’s participants continue collecting their salaries from the state while they are participating in the course. Maor cites that there are laws against public servants receiving gifts and is currently fighting to enforce that law against participants in the Wexner Foundation. The problem is that Israel’s Justice system is riddled with Wexner graduates.

Maor concludes that just about all of the foundation’s graduates don’t end up in fields like energy or agriculture but rather those that can influence the state’s security and foreign policy such as the military, police and courts. One prominent example he gives is Israel’s current chief of Staff Aviv Kokhavi who – also a graduate of the Wexner Foundation.

====

Take a look at who the director of [H]AMAN was, in 2010-2014.

And while you’re at it, I also found this post, which lists a whole bunch of police and ‘Justice’ department individuals, in very senior positions who are also all Wexner Foundation graduates.

There’s for sure way, way more going on here, and BH, it’s all going to start coming out of the woodwork soon. Not because I’m going to uncover it – I’m only going to bring things here that other people have already been brave enough to publish.

But because God is going to uncover it.

And that process is speeding up all the time.

UPDATE:

There were two more big earthquakes since I wrote this:

A 6.1 off the east coast of Japan, that was felt in Tokyo

And a 5.4 on the Turkey-Iran border that damaged a number of houses.

====

Also, THIS article came out, giving more details about the accusations now being made against Ehud Barak in connection with Epstein, and making it clear that Epstein – as Les Wexner’s asset manager – was the one responsible for handing out the money from the Wexner Foundation to all those Israelis, who basically received a million shekels – on top of their salaries – to spend a year getting a prestigious Harvard degree.

The Talmud tells us clearly that a ‘bribe blinds the eyes of the wise’.

In the meantime, I spent pretty much the whole day yesterday combing through the 500 or so recipients of the Wexner Foundation money in Israel. It’s actually depressing. Here’s just some of the more interesting ones:

Uzi Vogelman – Currently a Supreme Court Justice in Israel, and widely expected to succeed Esther Hayut as top dog, when she steps down in 2023.

Moshe Lador – Former Chief Public Prosecutor for the State of Israel – the guy who went after Ehud Olmert, and a few other things besides, that totally changed the face of Israeli politics.

Rivka Ben-Ari – who before she retired, was responsible for ‘evaluating police candidates’ in her role at the Israel Police Manpower unit.

Ohad Marani – former Director General of Israel’s Ministry of Finance, who now sits on the Board of Bank Leumi, and also chairs the board of Israel Natural Gas Lines – amongst many other things.

Yekoutiel Sabah – formerly the head of the Directorate  for “Reform of the Israeli Public Service”

Avi Gil – Ambassador, and former Deputy Director General of the the Peres Peace Centre, who is still churning out op-eds and being quoted all over the place as part of the Orwellian-sounding Jewish People Policy Planning Institute.

Like this one:

The Future of the Current World Order: Implications for Israel and the Jewish People

And here’s anti-chareidi politician Yair Lapid – speaking in English – addressing a JPPPI audience at ‘The Conference on the Future of the Jewish People”;

These guys have the ears of the politicians, both in Israel and abroad. Here’s another snippet from their website:

On June 23, 2013, the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) presented its 2012-2013 Annual Assessment of the Situation and Dynamics of the Jewish People to the Israeli Cabinet. Following the presentation, JPPI held a press briefing to discuss the main points of the presentation. This video contains extracts of briefing comments by Amb. Stuart Eizenstat and Amb. Dennis Ross, Co-Chairs of JPPI. Parts of the briefing were also conducted in Hebrew by JPPI President, Avinoam Bar-Yosef, and Senior Fellows, Dr. Einat Wilf, and Brig. Gen. (Res.) Michael Herzog.

====

And there’s more bad news, too.

Other people who took the money from the Wexner Foundation – run by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein – include:

Ami Ayalon – former Head of the Shin Bet and the Israel Security Agency.

Amos Yadlin – The IDF’s Chief of Defense Intelligence – take a look back at the list of names for who ran Unit 8200, he’s there. And he’s also still popping up all over the place today.

Here he is, interviewing former Gantz buddy, Gadi Eizenkot, back in January 2019, for the Institute for National Security Studies.

====

The INSS is a big organisation – if you take a look at their team, they have well over 70 staff.

And here’s a bit of their mission statement:

The Institute for National Security Studies launches and engages in innovative, relevant, high-quality research that shapes the public discourse of issues on Israel’s national security agenda, and provides policy analysis and recommendations to decision makers, public leaders, and the strategic community, both in Israel and abroad. As part of its mission, it is committed to encourage new ways of thinking and expand the traditional contours of establishment analysis.

So the question is, WHO IS PAYING FOR ALL THIS?

There’s some interesting names on their International Board of Trustees, including Charles Bronfman, and a few others that you might have heard of.

Meanwhile, their Board of Directors is chaired by Australian billionaire Frank Lowy.

While their Israeli Board of Trustees is headed up by:

The Chairman of the INSS Israeli Board of Trustees is Mr. Pinchas (Pini) Cohen, chairman of the NOY Fund.

Here’s a bit about the NOY Fund, from their website:

Over the past two decades the Noy Fund team members have been involved in almost every large scale infrastructure project executed in Israel and have had a significant contribution to the development of the project finance practice in Israel.

How convenient, is that, that the chair of the NOY Fund, who have their fingers in every big ‘infrastructure’ project in Israel, should also be so central to the functioning of the INSS, whose ‘security assessments’ are shaping the policy and direction of Israel, with a bit of help from Jewish billionaires abroad like Charles Bronfman and Frank Lowy?

====

I could go on and on with this.

Yedidia Ya’Ari – former Commander in Chief of Israel’s Navy, and now head of Raphael – he took money from the Wexner Foundation.

Moshe Shilo – former Director General of the Ministry of Justice, before he was fired in ‘interesting’ circumstances that no-one talks about – he took money from the Wexner Foundation.

And so on, and so forth.

====

The last thing to say is that while Channel 13 is trying to close down the Epstein story, they were instrumental in the media witch-hunt against Rabbi Berland, that led to him being put behind bars again.

Read more about their dodgy journalist practices here. And then ponder on the fact that The Tzaddik is just a mirror. 

The new book by Rav Berland is out.

I got the steer to get on with it from my visit to Hevron, and now you can buy it in paperback, BH.

But I can’t.

As Amazon is still not delivering to Israel, or at least, they aren’t delivering this book to Israel. I’m working on getting the ebook together, but we all know that it’s not the same, spiritually, as getting a hard copy out there.

So again, if you want the privilege of being the first person to officially print the book in the world, go HERE and order a copy.

====

Ah.

I’ve been pretty irritable this week. I guess that’s inevitable. All this uncertainty, all this backwards and forwards between what was, and what is, and what will be.

God is actually being so kind to us, He’s dismantling the gashmius, and the world of lies, in such a gentle fashion, relatively. If you go HERE, you’ll find a point-by-point summary, in English, of the Gemara Sanhedrin 97a, which paints a clear picture of what will be, before Moshiach finally shows up. Here’s some of the key points:

====

Truth will go away like Adarim (flocks; Maharsha – people of truth will have to hide).

==

Anyone who avoids evil will be considered foolish.

==

Ben David will come in a generation in which youths shame elders, and elders stand in front of youths. A daughter reviles and shames her mother, a daughter-in-law shames her mother-in-law, people’s faces resemble that of dogs, and a son feels no shame in front of his father.

==

Ben David will come in a generation of great brazenness. People will not honor each other (alternatively – even the most honorable people are crooked), even though many grapes grow, wine is expensive (because grapes do not yield much wine; alternatively, because everyone drinks a lot), the entire kingdom will be Minim, and there is no rebuke. (Ed. note: minim means ‘informers’, specifically people that snitch on other people to the government….)

==

Ben David will not come until there are many informers. Alternatively, he will not come until Talmidim diminish, or until people lack money, or until they despair of redemption.

====

Let’s take a look at that last one in more detail, shall we?

  1. Moshiach won’t come until ‘there are many informers’ – i.e. people and apps and security services snitching on every single person in the world, all using ‘coronavirus’ as the excuse – CHECK
  2. He won’t come ‘until Talmidim diminish’ – whether that’s kids in schools, or Torah scholars, we can also tick this box. I was just saying to my husband, how very hard it feels at the moment, to even give over some Torah at the Shabbat table. Just feels like wading through treacle, or trying to pull a bunch of wool through a thorn bush. I can’t concentrate so much at the moment, and I usually love sharing Torah, especially awesome Torah from Rabbenu or Rav Berland. But at the moment, I just can’t focus enough to really ‘learn’ anything much. And I know I’m not the only one. – CHECK
  3. He won’t come ‘until people lack money’. I have a feeling this is being sweetened, at least partially. Sure, there are a lot of people who have just been instantly tipped into terrible poverty – as was always the plan – because of the lockdowns. And for those poor people, the heart truly bleeds. I got an email from someone in Latin America who is seeing her friends’ small kids lacking even basic foodstuff, even basic things like milk. That’s hard. It’s really hard.

And then, on a totally different level, there’s the fact that cash is currently being phased out all over the place. You can’t buy a ticket to the Jerusalem Zoo with cash anymore, only card. Ditto the buses. When I go to the supermarket, I often get into disagreements with the cashiers who apparently lack the ‘cash’ in their tills to even give me 10 shekels change for a 100 shekel note.

New World Order, World Economic Forum, ‘Great Reset’, ID2020 – or maybe just God’s way of sweetening what was stated here in the Gemara, we’ll see.

====

4. Moshiach won’t come until people despair of redemption.

We’re there, aren’t we? If not personally, than politically, and nationally and globally.

Yeoush is beating hard on most people’s doors right now, and without the power of the Tzaddikim, it’s very hard to stand up in the test.

It’s very hard not to just drown in bitterness, or to ‘disappear’ into never-ending business to keep the anxiety at bay, or to switch off and go into denial about it all.

Very hard indeed.

I was speaking to a relative in the UK yesterday who owns a big business. While they are still doing OK, in terms of revenues, they are probably still heading into administration because of the COVID-19 lockdown, because – like every other service industry business – they realised they don’t need their super-expensive office space anymore.

And so has everyone else.

Which means they can’t get rid of their super-expensive lease, and they can’t get someone else to take it off their hands, and with the economic downturn, the lease by itself is enough to push the business into declaring bankruptcy. She’s barely been out of her house for four months, and she told me that she reckons half the shops will be boarded up anyway, by the time she finally goes shopping again.

There’s no point doing anything, we’re all just in limbo. Who knows if they are going to lock us down again, if there’s a ‘second wave’. It just feels that it’s totally pointless, to try to plan or do anything.

That’s what she told me.

And that’s kind of what most of us are feeling right now:

Apathy. Frustration. Anger. Claustrophobia. Fear. YEOUSH.

====

One of my kids’ friends wanted to know why there is all this frozen fruit for smoothies in the freezer, that just isn’t getting used. When I explained that I’m finding it hard to cook because I’m having a mid-life crisis, he told me: Yeah, my mum is too.

I think we all are, in one way or another.

How could we not be, after everything we’ve gone through the last few months, and as the uncertainty continues and the ‘world of lies’ carries on shattering before our very eyes.

====

So, here’s my two cents on what God is probably expecting from us, at this really FRUSTRATING, UNCERTAIN AND ANXIETY-INDUCING stage of the geula process:

  1. Avoid all hakpada against other people – hakpada is harsh judgment, holding grudges, thinking the worst about other people, and concentrating on it. Rav Berland recently said this:

IT’S ASSUR (FORBIDDEN) FOR A PERSON TO L’HAKPID (JUDGE HARSHLY) ANY OTHER JEW, EVEN IF HE DOING ALL THE EVIL THINGS.

You know why?

Because we’re just judging ourselves, when we’re judging other people. Whatever we see them doing that annoys us, it’s really just a mirror. So whatever judgment we’re passing on those other people, we’re really just passing it on ourselves.

Isn’t that a scary thought?

====

2. Try to dance for at least 10 minutes, every single day. This is still my ‘go to’ advice for getting out of yeoush, especially if you can’t just head out and visit the kever of a tzaddik, or spend 6 hours doing hitbodedut.

3. Buy a copy of Rabbi Berland’s Advice for Success and Happiness – and read it.

I started translating that book in the first place, because it was helping me so much to get out of my yeoush and despair every time I was cracking it open.

This is not a simple period of time we are heading in to, anything but.

We need as much help as we can get to weather the emotional storms still up ahead, and connecting to the true Tzaddikim, via their books and advice, is one of the single biggest things we can do to come through all this in one piece.

When we connect to the tzaddikim, and follow their advice, we are replacing our ‘bad’ thoughts and stupid ideas with their clarity and wisdom. And then, we can stop acting like an out-of-control retard.

Eventually.

UPDATE:

This article has absolutely nothing to do with this post, except to show how totally bizarre the world has become – permanent Purim, in fact – and how totally UNcredible practically every single source of ‘news’ now is. I clicked on this by mistake, when I was typing in a different website address, and here’s what came up.

Unbelievable, that this is what passes as ‘news’ today.

I know it’s bad to look at Facebook.

I know, believe me I know. That’s why I have a fake account that lets me just dip in and out when I need to go and look up things for research purposes.

So yesterday, I was doing some research that took me to a Facebook page, and then I noticed a picture of a young woman with striking red hair and a sad face under all her makeup – Shiran – and something compelled me to look at it.

Man, I got so sad, so fast.

====

As I scrolled through all her selfies from the last five years, I saw how a beautiful, religious, ‘edgy’ girl went totally off the rails.

It started in small ways. The skirt was still black, but way too tight. Then it got shorter. Then the tops started revealing more and more cleavage.

Then, some big ‘break’ happened, and the hair got dyed a vampy red.

Then the makeup went up a level, with kohl-ed eyes and dark red lipstick to match.

And the clothes continued to disappear.

And then the first tattoo showed up – something ‘subtle’, just a signature on one wrist.

And now, five years later, she’s totally covered in tattoos up and down all her limbs, and a few other places, too.

I know this, because the last ‘selfies’ posted up were artistically-shot pictures of Shiran running through some grass with her tattoo-ed butt cheeks hanging out of her cut off shorts. P*rnography, pretty much, but so artfullll….

====

What can I tell you?

My heart broke.

The last few months, I’ve been getting to know quite a few of these ‘souls of tohu’, these big souls that can’t really fit into the world as it’s currently configured, and so they want to destroy, and tear it down to its foundations.

At their root, these kids, these teens, these young people are really only good.

They want that ideal version of planet earth so badly, it literally pains them to have our current flawed version. So they lash out, and they try to do anything they can to minimize the pain of simply being alive in our current, difficult reality.

And the first person they lash out at is themselves.

What are tattoos, after all, except bruises of the soul, publically displayed for all to see?

====

Honestly?

I’m still heartbroken about all this. There are so many kids like this, who are growing up in homes – frum or not – and falling straight to the bottom of the world. And everything is being documented with selfies on Facebook and Instagram.

I can’t help but wonder, if there was no Facebook page to post all this amateur p*rn up on, and no Smartphone to take pictures of the ‘latest’ self-mutilating tattoo, and no fake Facebook friends to egg-on all this self-destructive behavior with little red hearts and ‘thumbs up’ emojis, would it still be happening?

Would Shiran have transformed so violently, from an off-the-derech girl to a tattoo-d vamp-call-girl-wannabe?

====

I find that question so painful.

This world is so hard.

So please, go and give you teens a big hug right now.

Tell them how good they are. Tell them how much you love them – even if they’ve already slipped, even if they’ve fallen. There is always a way back, there is always a stairway up and out of the muck – I learnt that from Rabbenu, and from Rav Berland.

But the first step is our love for our kids.

Turn that love on, whack it up to full volume and let it shine a path for your kid to return to their true selves, return to their souls, and return to God.

He wants everyone back.

Even Shiran.

====

As I was writing this, one of my kids told me she wanted to show me an ‘amazing’ video.

It’s called neshamot shel tohu – souls of chaos – and it depicts a little of what I’m writing about in this post. These lost young people, running through the streets of Jerusalem, smoking, drinking, hanging out in Mahane Yehuda. Acting out, because the world is just so painful to them. They are mamash the biggest neshamas.

The chorus says:

Neshamot shel tohu

Machapsot ca’av

Bishvil l’argish mashu

English:

Souls of chaos, looking for ‘pain’, just so they can feel something.

What can I say?

I started crying again.

====

====

UPDATE:

Here’s an English translation of the lyrics:

Souls of ‘chaos’

Looking for ‘pain’

Just in order to feel something

Only so they can feel something

==

I got used to this now

Prisoner of the cycle

Scared to come close

‘Diseased’ and frightened

Knots and more knots in the heart

I want [to come closer] but don’t know how

==

A scared boy

Angry at the world

He runs away to each place

And doesn’t understand where he’s even going

To love from close up, it’s still not possible

There is a ‘ruach sayera’ (storm wind)

==

Shards of light from those days

Broken vessels are wandering around

Thirsty, angry

Broken-hearted because of other people

The smallness of ‘skin’

The separation between light and light

The heart is so very sensitive

It’s hard to endure the world

==

So if you are wandering around

With a hungry heart

Know something:

The buried treasure is within your own deepness

This is amazing.

A mainstream media personality – Tucker Carlson – actually tells the truth about what is going on about COVID-19 and the deceitful lockdowns, and all the lies the politicians and Bill Gates-funded civil servants and health officials have been telling about what’s been going on the last 4 months.

Every time I put more of the Rav’s prayers up, or get more of his teachings out there, I immediately notice that the ‘world of lies’ get’s a big puncture.

Of course, we aren’t at the knock out punch just yet…. but it’s definitely starting to teeter-totter. With people like Tucker Carlson calling it out in the USA, and even in Israel, where the media functions directly as a (paid….) add-on for the government propaganda machine, we are starting to see articles like this, on ynet:

What the state is hiding about the coronavirus outbreak:

Opinion: Investigation of factual data from around the world and mathematical projections show the government assertion that it saved us from a terrible plague is nothing more than illusion

==

While over on the awful Jpost, every propaganda piece they try to turn out now about COVID-19 blowing up ‘exponentially’, and ‘second waves’, and how infectious, and deadly it all is, and how very important it is to wear facemasks 24/7 blah blah blah – is being met by literally hundreds of comments from people openly accusing them of lying, fearmongering and spreading propaganda.

Just take a look at this screenshot, from THIS article:

screenshot of comments

====

While we’re on the topic of the Jpost, they keep changing the posts as they go along, and also adding and deleting comments, and fiddling with the content to try to keep ahead of all the criticism they are getting.

For example, this article was originally called:

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/coronavirus-outbreak-11-employees-of-sourasky-medical-center-infected-631631

But now, they’ve ‘updated’ the headline to this far more scary sounding bit of fearmongering propaganda:

‘Gov’t failing to stop second wave of coronavirus’

Bill Gates!!! Cut the JPost another big cheque, they are doing a FABULOUS job of churning out non-stop propaganda to soften the public up for your mandatory vaccines!

To be clear, 300 people with an average age of 102 died in the first wave in Israel, over 4 months. (Remember, 131 people die in Israel EVERY SINGLE DAY, on average.)

So if the ‘second wave’ is as ‘bad’ as the first well, ahem, I think we’ll all just take our chances.

And btw, most people aren’t wearing masks properly, if at all, social distancing has almost NEVER happened anywhere in Israel (except down by the Kotel, where for a time it was being rigorously enforced by the local kappos) – so any infection that was going to happen, happened many weeks ago, already.

This new ‘spike’ is just because they started testing thousands and thousands of extra people.

And everyone knows it.

====

So now, over to Tucker to tell it how it is in the USA:

(Not 100% shmirat eynayim friendly)

====

The Rav said many years ago that they would have to tell more and more lies, until they couldn’t tell any more, before the world of truth could finally begin.

I think we’re almost there.

====

This morning, I had a change of plans.

Initially, I was planning to go to Ein Mabua again, to trek through the sparking stream there (while trying to dodge the Arabs and women in revealing bikinis….)

I’m digressing here, but if I learnt one thing at the beach in Palmachim a little while ago, it’s that seeing so much flesh everywhere is actually pretty disturbing, on a number of levels. We aren’t animals, after all, we are created in the tzelem Elokim, the image of God, but it’s very hard to remember that, when someone is shaking their cellulite all over the place.

Anyway, so last minute I had a change of heart, and decided I should hike somewhere ‘holy’ instead.

The weather was gorgeous – sunny, but not too hot and blowing a strong breeze – so I headed off to where Dan ben Yaakov and Shimshon the Gibor are buried, near the Eshtaol forest off Route 44.

I used to go there a lot when I lived in Yad Binyamin, but I don’t go so much these days, not least because the Government wrecked the yeshiva that Rav Arush built there a few years’ back, and all that’s left now is the small, one-roomed kever.

But I was in the mood to hike AND pray, so it’s a perfect destination for that.

====

I get there, and the first thing I saw was the mess, everywhere.

People had been BBQ-ing, I don’t know what, used skewers and plastic cups and empty coke bottles all over the place. So I spent the first 2 minutes stuffing whatever I could into an empty plastic bag.

It’s not totally the fault of the BBQ-ers: when the government got rid of the yeshiva, they also got rid of the bins (and the toilets….) so there is no-where to throw the garbage away.

I went in for 5 minutes, sighed a deep sigh, I’m not quite sure why, then headed off up the track to where Shimshon the Gibbor is buried at the top of a hill about a 50 minute walk away.

====

I’m doing my hitbodedut, chatting to God about this and that, when suddenly I start thinking about an awful article that appeared on Jpost yesterday, that involved the Rav.

Literally, as my mind flits to that subject, two big white dogs appear on the path in front of me – guarding the boundary of the illegal beduin farmers up on the mountain – and start barking.

Usually, I just stand still and they go away.

This time, the more ‘still’ I stood, the closer they got, and the more aggressive they got, until one of them actually tried to bite me. I was wearing a long dress, so he bit holes in that, instead of my leg, until a beduin teenage boy finally appeared and threw a stone at the dog, to call him off.

Strangely, I wasn’t so scared.

I think that’s because I knew why it happened, while it was happening. Rabbi Nachman teaches in Sefer HaMiddot that:

“One who gossips or who listens to it should be thrown to the dogs” (#17, Gossip and Slander)

Uhoh.

All I did was read the yucky piece on Jpost – and here God was showing me just how dangerous it is, to get involved in even passively reading slander about the Gadol HaDor, even when you don’t believe any of it.

It was a very strong lesson.

====

I get to Shimshon HaGibbor, climb the mountain, admire the view, do a bit of praying and writing in my hitbodedut book, then come down again.

At the bottom, in a forested glade, there’s a middle-aged man sitting behind a table spread with drinks and things to eat.

This is the hachnasat orchim stop for Shimshon HaGibbor! He tells me, with a big smile on his face.

Come have a cup of tea, or some water, or a boureka!

The grave of Shimshon is literally in a forest in the middle of nowhere, so I’m impressed – and confused – as to what he’s doing here.

====

We get chatting, and he tells me his name is Levi Yitzhak – he’s a descendant of the Berditchever Rebbe, with Chabad tendencies.

He tells me he was doing hachnasat orchim at Kever Dan for a long time, but now, he feels he should do it at the grave of Shimshon instead now.

There’s a lot of kids at Dan’s kever doing drugs now, he tells me, the smile fading from his face.

I don’t know what to tell him.

I think to myself, that wasn’t happening when Rav Arush had a branch of his yeshiva there…

But the government prefers drug addicts to yeshiva bochurs, so what can we do?

====

I have some tea – he has a whole gas stove set up there – and light two candles for Shimshon and his father, Manoach.

Then, Levi Yitzhak tells me that he’s organising a Shabbat in the forest by Kever Shimshon ‘for normal people’.

This week.

Do I want to come?

I don’t want to burst his bubble by explaining to him that I probably don’t fit his ‘normali’ criteria, so I take his phone number, thank him for the tea, and head back down the track.

I go the long way around the beduin camp, just to make sure, but there are no dogs on the way back, because now I got the message.

Be really careful about the lashon hara, Rivka, really, really careful!

====

The generation has the face of a dog.

We spend so many hours a day stuffing our eyeballs with all the puke-making headlines from the corrupt media, and the spiritually tamei bloggers and Facebook posters.

Hashem should have mercy.

====

I’m not going to the forest for Shabbat (I like to have real toilets, spoiled Anglo that I still am).

But it made me feel so happy that there are other people in Israel who are also pinging off that ‘crazy-holy’ vibe.

Slowly, it seems more things are returning to ‘normal’ here now, although that by itself is so strange, if I’m honest.

How can we go through everything we’ve gone through since February, and have things go back to ‘normal’?

====

When I was walking up and down that beach in Palmachim, I knew there would have to be another dose of madness, and probably soon, because God doesn’t want to lose a single soul to crass materialism and that empty, secular life.

So, He has to shake things up again.

Probably soon.

And it won’t be how it was last time, because God never does the same exact thing twice.

In the meantime, I sit here trying to straddle ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’, and ‘geula’ and ‘galut’, and ‘change’ and ‘limbo’ again.

It’s not so easy, is it?

I don’t know if I’m coming or going. But this I do know: I need to savor every second of happiness God is sending me right now, and to be grateful for every last bit of freedom, and comfort, and food and health and gashmius, and ruchnius.

Because who knows what tomorrow brings?

Does all this ‘taking the knee‘ stuff sound familiar to you?

Cos it sure as heck sounds familiar to me.

In biblical times, whenever the nation of Israel was going to go out to war, there would be a selection process whereby those that had ‘knelt to the Baal’ were disqualified for service.

On a similar note, doesn’t all these statues – pessalim, idols – being smashed up, defaced and toppled all over the place remind you of something else?

Like, what happened in ancient Egypt during the 10 plagues, when the nation’s idols were destroyed one after another – except for the Baal Tzafon, that was left standing right until the end?

We appear to be in the middle of a modern day 10 plagues.

Over the last week or so, there have been a series of 6.0+ earthquakes fanning out across the globe.

Dutchsinse got taken off the internet, because the powers that be didn’t want him educating the population about how geomagnatic phenomena and seismicity really works, so I can’t give you any ‘predictions’ for a big one, at least not from him.

But, I guess I don’t have to, because Rabbi Pinto told us many weeks ago that a big earthquake is coming soon:

One last thought for today, then I have to get on with finishing another book project for the Rav, BH.

There’s a big discussion going on about aliya right now, given the mounting violence etc we are witnessing worldwide, and the fact that orthodox Jews are now being stabbed in the head in London, etc.

I live in Israel. I’ve struggled to live in Israel, financially, and socially, and in many other ways, too.

But I still know that living in Israel is 100% a gift from Hashem, and that when people are ‘stopped’ from making aliya, it’s because they are the subject of large spiritual judgments, above.

I’m not here because I have more emuna, more foresight, more bravery, more wisdom than anyone else.

I’m here because God decided to give me and my family a gift 16 years ago, and to push us out of the UK and into the Holyland.

For me to think that I somehow got here under my own steam, or because of my own spiritual merit is totally laughable. I was really not such a nice person when we made aliyah, and my emuna was practically non-existent. We got here because God basically scared the pants off me via a series of nightmares, and then helped me to buy a much bigger house here, than I could have afforded in the UK at that time.

There was a very big carrot, and a very big stick.

What there wasn’t, was a person with great middot or a burning desire to move to Israel for spiritual reasons.

I can’t claim any credit for moving here, it was all God’s doing.

I guess what I’m really trying to say is that if God could get me to Israel, then He can certainly do that for everyone else, too.

All this upheaval is a present, to clear away the judgments that have been preventing Jews from coming to Israel.

The single best way to help people to make aliya – including ourselves! – is to:

  1. Pray
  2. Make some sincere teshuva
  3. Connect to the true tzaddikim, and their Torah and advice, including Rebbe Nachman and Rav Berland.

No-one got out of Egypt without Moshe Rabbenu.

No-one.

And no-one got into Eretz Israel if they were still bad-mouthing other Jews, speaking badly of them, and going against the Tzaddik HaDor.

I’ve written about this subject elsewhere, below, I’ll attach a few posts on the subject.

But let me end with this snippet from Rabbenu, which goes to the heart of the question of whether moving to Israel and living here is really enough, to be ‘saved’ from the chevlei Moshiach all by itself:

The motive for making the journey to Eretz Yisrael should be purely spiritual: to draw closer to God. A person who goes there with this as his aim will certainly benefit….On the other hand, if a person’s motive has nothing to do with devotion to God and cleansing himself of his evil, then what help will Israel be to him? The land will vomit him out…

I am sure that there will still be an opportunity for people to move here, even though most of us still haven’t woken up to the unpleasant fact that the State of Israel has closed its borders to Jews abroad – and from what I can see, this seems to be part of a deliberate strategy to stop people making aliya.

Otherwise, why not just test anyone who flies here for Corona first, why not just put them up in the empty hotels and Air BnBs for 2 weeks of quarantine?

As that Cypriot billionaire showed us all last week, where this is a will to get people into Israel, there was always a way, even at the height of the lockdown here.

The Rav said many months ago that people will come on boats – and I don’t think he was referring to private yachts.

He’s talking about luxury liners that can hold thousands of people. At some point, the penny will drop, and Jews abroad will realise that every word the Rav says should be explored in total seriousness.

But even if that’s not the case, and people don’t make it here – God has a plan for them.

As long as someone is working on coming closer to God, and working on their emuna that whatever God does, it’s for the best, ultimately they will end up in a good place. That doesn’t necessarily mean getting to Israel, or even coming through the whole process alive.

There are no guarantees for anyone, wherever they happen to live, except this:

If we accept God’s will for us with emuna, then whatever happens down here, live or die, aliya or not, our souls will end up in a very, very good place.

And that’s really the whole point, hard as that can be for us to swallow.

We all remember the stories of the chassidim in World War II who danced into the gas chambers, because they knew that their souls were going straight to the highest places in shemayim.

And we all remember those reshaim in Israel, all those Labour Zionists, and others, who survived the war and even held prestigious jobs running the country for decades.

Where did their souls end up?

So, take courage dear reader. Wherever you live, you can continue to do God’s will sincerely, and if you get the chance to move here – take it! And if you don’t, your emuna is what is really going to count, at the end of the day.

Rav Berland has explained more than once that we all have to die before techiat hametim can occur, even if just for a second.

So trust God, remember that the SOUL is what really matters, not the body, and get as close as you can to Rav Berland and Rebbe Nachman’s Torah.

Because no-one got out of Egypt and into the Holy Land unless they were following Moshe Rabbenu and listening to the Tzaddik HaDor

Even if they already happened to live in Israel.

UPDATE:

I just noticed something interesting:

Black Lives Matter = BLM.

BiLaaM.

There is nothing new under the sun.
