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:
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
 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.
