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.
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.
