Yesterday, the bakery where my daughter works got ‘visited’ by the police.

They pushed their way into the private kitchens at the back where all the baking is done, and started giving 500 shekel fines to any worker not wearing a facemask up over their nose.

Because of tactics like this, even the people who used to be fervently patriotic, and who used to be behind the Israeli police 100% are starting to think that ‘something’ is not quite right in the State of Israel today. My daughter told me that at least one of the old workers was vehemently cursing the police, who busted into the private area of a private business, to dock hardworking people of what equates to at least 2 days of working wages – just for not wearing a facemask.

====

Let’s be clear, there is ZERO scientific evidence mandating the wearing of facemasks.

If this ‘law’ was challenged in court (as I so fervently hope and pray it will be soon) it would fall within 10 seconds of proceedings beginning, because of some very simple facts, like these:

  1. Anything that has pores big enough to let a person breathe CANNOT KEEP OUT ‘COVID-19 / CORONAVIRUS PARTICLES.

They are way, way smaller than the mesh of even the KN-95 facemask.

The only way to effectively cut off any COVID-19 ‘germs’ would be to bubble-wrap your head. For the 58 seconds of life that remained to you before you asphyxiated, you would be in a pristinely ‘COVID-19-FREE’ environment.

====

There is also tons of evidence to show that wearing masks for any length of time reduces the amount of oxygen circulating around your body, with potentially serious physical health consequences that build up over time.

And of course, massive MENTAL HEALTH consequences, as seeing everyone wearing facemasks all the time is profound demoralising and debilitating.

Especially when the police are just waiting to hand out 500 shekel fines to anyone who’s just trying to breathe a breath of fresh air.

This video from Dr Rashad Buttar is not shmirat eynayim friendly, FYI, but listen to what he’s saying, because he explains things very clearly:

====

So, where does all this leave us?

It leaves us looking down the barrel of an ugly, medical dictatorship where the powers-that-be are using our fear to control us, and to try to empower our worst nightmares.

The only way to battle this, really, is to work on our emuna, and particularly our emuna that Ein Od Milvado – there is only Hashem.

That’s really the whole test, the whole enchilada.

To get to that stage of saying if God wants me dead, God forbid, then I could bubble-wrap my head, live in an oxygen tent 24/7 (like Michael Jackson….) and wear latex pyjamas to bed – and I’ll still croak.

And if God doesn’t want us dead yet – and believe me, He really doesn’t want most people ‘dead’, He just wants us to work on our emuna and to come back to Him wholeheartedly – then there is nothing and no-one that can touch us.

====

If you want to do something more ‘active’, then also consider doing some hafetza with Rav Berland’s books and prayers in English. I’m going to keep tossing this in to the mix, because really, that’s the only way things will start to turnaround on a major level, when more people get behind the Tzaddik HaDor.

We just got 1000 of the Rav’s books in English printed up in Israel, and apparently they can still be posted out to anywhere in the country.

Plus, you can buy them at the tefillot at the Beit HaRav, on Ido HaNavi Street, from the Shuvu Banim bookseller. Just ask for R’ Shushan.

Plus, you can also buy them for a cheaper price as ‘downloadable PDFs’ that you can either read on your screen, or print off at home.

Go HERE to see what’s available.

====

Lastly, I want to share two screenshots that my readers sent me.

One made me laugh out loud, and the other one made me ponder just how long the world of evil is going to be able to continue, as more and more details about Epstein / Maxwell / human trafficking / human medical experimentation starts to come out. More on that, another time. When it’s a little bit ‘safer’ to write about it.

====

====

Heyyyy, wait a minute.

What was that whole corruption case with Bibi about again?

Oh yeah, now I remember:

https://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-and-the-submarine-scandal-everything-you-need-to-know/

Ever wondered just why the State of Israel would need so many new, massive submarines?

It’s kind of interesting, isn’t it?

Especially given the link between Epstein / Maxwell and the State of Israel.

UPDATE:

I just found this video of yet another Israeli policeman slapping around a chareidi, at one of the recent protests in Israel, courtesy of Neshama’s blog. Ah, the hypocrisy.

The unmasked Border Policeman slapped the masked charedi in the face for asking him why he wasn’t wearing a mask…..

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?

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. 

Sometimes, it’s hard to keep going, isn’t it?

I think the hardest part of this current exile we’re in is that so much of our effort for good just seems to get ‘swallowed’ by bad, and we’re left scratching our heads and wondering where it all went.

The ‘bad’ is swallowing so much kedusha, so much good, so much truth, and it’s gulping it down at a never-before-seen pace.

And then I remember what Rebbe Nachman explained, that at some point, it will gulp down too much, and something will get stuck in its throat, and then it will be forced to regurgitate every last bit of good it swallowed.

More and more, I think the something that will get stuck in its throat is Rabbi Berland.

====

In case you don’t already know, the State of Israel, aided and abetted by the Pravda Israeli media, has decided to begin a new war against Rabbi Berland, and his Shuvu Banim community.

This time, they are using a secular woman whose baal teshuva daughter died from gallbladder cancer a couple of months ago.

Shoshie, the daughter, and her husband became baal teshuvas a few years ago – much to the mother’s displeasure. Then, they became Breslovers – which upset the mother even more. And then, the crowning insult – they joined Rabbi Berland’s Shuvu Banim community, and grew their payot really long.

This, the mother could never forgive.

====

Before we continue, some facts on gallbladder cancer, the type of cancer Shoshie had.

The following comes from uptodate.com, a website that is used by medical professionals to stay up to date, easily, on the latest research and advice for different illnesses:

Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is an uncommon but highly fatal malignancy; fewer than 5000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. The majority are found incidentally in patients undergoing exploration for cholelithiasis; a tumor will be found in 1 to 2 percent of such cases [1-4]. The poor prognosis is thought to be related to advanced stage at diagnosis, which is due both to the anatomic position of the gallbladder and to the vagueness and nonspecificity of symptoms.

Surgery is the only potentially curative modality for patients with GBC. However, only a minority of patients are eligible for curative-intent surgery because of disease extent (either locoregionally advanced and unresectable because of local invasion into critical structures or metastasized beyond locoregional confines). For the remainder, treatment is palliative in nature.

====

I bolded the sentence that you should pay particular attention to. In plain English, it says that the only way you can potentially cure gallbladder cancer is to surgically remove the diseased gallbladder.

If you can’t do that, you have no chance of curing the cancer, according to natural laws.

The following stats come from the cancer.net website:

If the cancer has spread outside the gallbladder to the lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is between 7% and 8%. Gallbladder cancer that has spread to other parts of the body has a 5-year survival rate of 4% or less.

====

What these stats say is that just 4-8% of people with gallbladder cancer live longer than 5 years after their diagnosis.

Or to put it another way, it kills 92-96% of people within five years, regardless of the treatment they receive.

Chemotherapy doesn’t work to ‘cure’ gallbladder cancer (whether it works under any circumstances is a post for another time). The medical professionals know this, and many of them will not ‘force’ people with gallbladder cancer to have chemo, as the side effects are horrendous and it’s really not helping them to live longer, anyway.

These are the facts.

The facts that you won’t see reported anywhere, in the Pravda propaganda media here in Israel, and in many other places in the West.

====

Cancer is a big industry.

This comes from an article on the newstarget site in 2016:

Last year, the cancer industry was valued at $100 billion, and is predicted to reach $147 billion in sales by 2018, according to data released by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.

====

Meanwhile, this comes from the marketwatch website from January this year:

Global Oncology Drugs Market to Surpass US$ 196.2 Billion by 2026

The cancer industry is extremely lucrative, and is doubling in the 10 years between 2016-2026.

Why is it so profitable? The following article from October 2019, on the statnews website might shed some light on this:

Americans are rightly furious about the high and unsustainable price of cancer drugs, which now routinely cost more than $100,000 per year of therapy. Those prices are made worse by the fact that most cancer drugs offer only modest benefits — one study put the median benefit at 2.1 extra months of life — along with the fact that expert physicians frequently recommend these drugs for off-label uses, meaning using a drug for a purpose it was not initially approved for.

You got that?

You get an extra 2.1 months of life, on average, and it will cost you $100,000, if you go the ‘cancer drugs’ route.

====

So now, let’s return to the sad case of Shoshie, who paid a pidyon to Rabbi Berland, which was really her only chance of surviving her cancer in any way, shape or form.

The Rav advised her to follow a strict ‘no toxin’ diet, to try to encourage the gallbladder to heal, and according to the testimony of Shoshie’s husband, for as long as she was following the diet, her health was actually stable and even strengthening.

But the mother couldn’t leave things alone, and put her daughter under tremendous psychological pressure to have chemotherapy.

The same chemotherapy that even the medical profession admits doesn’t work to ‘cure’ gallbladder cancer in any way, shape or form, and that floods the body with a tremendous dose of literal poison.

That poison collapsed Shoshie’s weakened immune system, and she died two weeks after the chemotherapy.

Let me ask you:

When you know these facts about gallbladder cancer, who should really be in the frame for ‘murdering’ Shoshie?

====

So in this instance, the pidyon didn’t work.

Occasionally, this happens, and Rebbe Nachman clearly explains why this happens, at least in the spiritual realm, as you can read about HERE.

In the meantime, anti-chareidi journalists from Israel’s Channel 13 News decided to make a patently misleading ‘expose’ into what happened; then anti-chareidi politicians (who used to be anti-chareidi journalists) got up in the Knesset to ‘demand’ that the State of Israel stop the ‘Rabbi Berland cult’ –

And whaddya know?!

Barely two weeks later, Nurit Ben Moshe has filed a complaint with the Israel Police that Rabbi Berland should be investigated for manslaughter.

====

Again, let’s break down the complaint in plain English:

  • Rabbi Berland took money to effect a spiritual cure known as a pidon nefesh – that thousands of people, including terminally-ill cancer patients who the doctors had given up on can tell you first-hand worked to permanently cure them of their illness.
  • Rabbi Berland advised the patient, Shoshi, to follow a strict ‘all natural’ diet – to avoid over-taxing an already very weak immune system, and try to get her body to heal.
  • Nurit Ben-Moshe complained that Rabbi Berland was ‘stopping her daughter’ from having ‘life-saving chemotherapy’ – both claims are totally false. As soon as Shoshie succumbed to the pressure from her mother to have the chemo, she had the chemotherapy. No-one was stopping her from doing anything. And the chemo wasn’t ‘life-saving’ at all – in fact, it’s highly likely that having the chemo radically shortened Shoshi’s life.
  • Ergo, the pidyon didn’t work.

In any other country, the police would throw this complaint out as delusional.

But of course, the State of Israel is run by an anti-chareidi mafia, so instead, the media is full of stories rehashing the old lies and spicing them up with new ones.

====

So, why do I say that Rabbi Berland is the ‘bone in the throat’ of the Sitra Achra?

Because last time the State of Israel fabricated a case against him, the Israeli judicial system started to unravel publically. Just last week, Israel’s own Justice Minister had this to say about the ‘justice’ system in Israel (quoting something President Rivlin wrote in Haaretz back in 2004!):

Almost no one dared uncover the dangerous symbiosis between figures in the police major crimes unit, the State Prosecutor’s Office and the media.”….  How can we accept a situation in which senior officials in the judicial establishment, who are obligated to uphold standards, who preach at the gate against corruption, see and hear about institutional corruption on such a scale and say, there’s nothing to be done. The answer is that we cannot.”

No-one believes in the courts or the cops here anymore. Five years ago, most people believed that fair trials and honest investigations occurred in the State of Israel.

Not any more.

====

And now, this latest calumny against the Rav is going to highlight all the terrible lies the West likes to tell about its medical profession.

Start researching ‘cure’ rates for chemo, and for radiation oncology, and see what you find. And while you’re at it, take a look at this link a reader just sent me about cells from an aborted fetus that died in 1966, that are being cloned and routinely added to vaccines.

Even Wikipedia confirms that this is happening, known as ‘MCR-5’ on your vaccine information inserts.

Can someone please tell me why that’s happening?

What on earth is the medical justification, the medical rationale, for adding the whole cloned dna from an aborted fetus to vaccines?

I have to admit, I can’t think of anything that would justify this, and I can think of a whole bunch of reasons why I find this idea disturbing in the extreme.

====

So, I think this latest blood libel against the Rav is going to start shining the spotlight on the corrupt medical profession, and all the lies they like to tell about what’s really causing illnesses, and what’s really curing them.

In the meantime, Rabbi Berland has been warning for months that the situation is so bad, he’s going to have to take on a new disgrace that will make the last one look like a walk in the park.

I wrote about that months ago, here.

And it seems, that time has now come.

====

UPDATE:

Someone just sent me this flyer. If you’re in Israel, and you’re interested in at least asking some questions about why they are putting the full DNA from an aborted fetus from 1966 into vaccines we’re all happily syringing into our children, this could be the place to go for some more information:

UPDATE #2:

Within 10 minutes of me linking to the scholarly article that simply explained that the MCR-5 cells were taken from the aborted, 14 week old male of a 27 year old woman with severe mental illness, that article disappeared! The censorship is totally insane.

Here’s what that scholarly article said:

The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reason from a 27 year old physically healthy woman. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like.

The State of Israel is meant to be a ‘home’ for every Jew. That’s not exactly what’s happening.

Following on from my posts about the quagmire relating to conversions in Latin America (which I still have way more to write about, in due course), I received the following interesting email from a reader.

I don’t agree with everything she says (especially about secular politicians providing some sort of ‘solution’) – but I think her insight and the information she is sharing is a very valuable contribution to the discussion on what is really going on with orthodox converts, on today’s State of Israel.

So with her permission (and removing any identifying details), I’m sharing it with you below.

====

I am a giyoret (charedi) from Latin America, and sadly (yes) I know more or less the conversion system.

You probably already know, but to explain why I wasn’t simply able to vote for the religious parties I first have to explain how the conversion system works in Israel.

In Israel you have two options, you either go to a private court (many of those are charedi) or you go to the State conversion system.

For a citizen of Israel, this is a non-issue, but for non-citizens it’s about choosing to have automatic political rights (i.e. the ability to make aliyah) or not. 

You could say, “then everyone should just do the process via the Rabbanut” but sadly, to get into the system you need approval from the Exceptions Committee, which is a joint committee (Rabbanut and the Interior Ministry). 

And passing the approval process in a reasonable amount of time is almost impossible if you are from a third world country, and even more difficult if you are from a third world country and charedi. Many of those cases end up without a solution and end up being deported from Israel or leaving voluntarily.

====

To give you more perspective, I know girls that have been trying for more than three years to convert with the Rabbanut (they are already giyorot (converts) because usually, you finish the private, charedi conversion process first).

Three years, without a work permit or something similar (they usually have to work as cleaners).

It’s physical and psychological torture (I went through something similar, but I was luckier), and sadly, seeing this continue (even up until today) marked me forever.

You probably know about Karen Jemima Mosquera.

(Ed. Note: I didn’t, but now I’m looking into it.)

Well, I know her mother and sister, and her rabbi, who are all tzadikim, especially her rabbi who no matter what, helps people). Sadly, I couldn’t meet her, but when I learned the real story (that right-wing newspapers never told) I was shocked by the amount of cruelty this woman had to go through. Not only from the State (and particularly, the Interior Ministry) but also from religious institutions.

In the moment of her death, Jemima was not Jewish according to the State of Israel. I mean, she was clearly Jewish (she had a mehadrin conversion) but she was not politically Jewish. The fact that she could be buried on the Mount of Olives was a political miracle.

I personally think she died for a reason, and it was to call the frum community’s attention to the existence of people like her.

But nothing changed.

====

Now, like many charedim, I was told that Lapid is a rasha (evildoer) (don’t get me wrong, I didn’t vote for them either), that if he gets the power then we are done.

I don’t think he is a rasha, he is just a massive fool. And I don’t think he is so important as the religious leadership wants us to believe.

We as frum people tend to think that since we’re extra careful about certain things (Shabbat, kashrut, arayot (modest behavior) that our permanence in this land depends on keeping those prohibitions.

As far as I know, Hashem has never exiled us for breaking those things.

Hashem has exiled us for violating mitzvot ben adam le chavero (the mitzvahs between a man and his fellow man.)

For oppressing the widow, the stranger, and the orphan.

And this is because He has a special sympathy for the stranger, the widow, and the orphan. Hashem cares for the weary.

Shabbat, Kashrut, and Arayot are of course important but are not the ikkar (main thing).

====

And forgive me for what I’m saying, the religious parties are complicit in this suffering.

Who is the Interior Minister? Aryeh Machlouf Dery, a “charedi” guy. He’s the one who is is behind the suffering of those gerim (converts).

(This comes from the Ministry of Interior website:)

The Population Administration deals with the personal, formal, and legal status of residents of Israel, in accordance with Government policy on citizenship, immigration, and entry to and exit from the country. It provides documentation and registration services and monitors movements and changes such as births, deaths, changes of address, entry to and exit from the country. It issues passports; conducts border checks; and manages the population registry, passport, and border check databases, which are a primary source of information for the Population Administration offices and, through them, for other government agencies.

Laws determining personal status and modalities for entering and leaving Israel include the Law of Return 5710-1950; the Entry to Israel Law 5712-1952; the Citizenship Law 5712-1952; the Passports Law 5712-1952; the Names Law 5716-1956; the Population Registry Law 5725-1965; the Possession and Presentation of Identity Cards Law 5743-1982; and the Emergency Regulations (Exit from the Country) 5708-1948.

I was heavily conflicted, and this dirty trick of using the Gadol Hador (who is probably clueless about this situation) to push the tzibbur (community) to vote for gimmel because it was in our interests.

(Ed. Note: this isn’t my understanding of why they said to vote to Gimmel.)

I was heavily considering voting for gimmel because even if their political allies (Shas) hurt me and my friends, I truly wanted to be loyal.

But something happened.

In my seminary, there are currently 4 girls trying to make aliyah with a charedi private conversion (the State of Israel’s Supreme Court gave them this right).

Three of them are stuck (no answer).

One of them (a sixty-year-old lady), got a B1 visa meanwhile, while they decide her fate (she must reapply in a year).

She spent 9000 NIS to get this.

(From the Nefesh B’Nefesh website🙂 Work (B-1): Granted to those who qualify under the Law of Return and who do not hold prior Israeli citizenship. This visa allows you to legally work in Israel. The visa is for a three year period. You can apply to extend it for another two years, but you cannot exceed a period of five years in total. At the end of this time period, you can either apply for Aliyah or apply for an A-5 visa, which can be extended every 2 years. (Scroll down for an update on this – apparently Nefesh B’Nefesh have this wrong.)

====

B1 visas are working visas for foreign workers (non-Jews) and goyish girlfriends, its known as the “girlfriend visa.”

With this visa, you don’t have right to have a teudat zehut (national ID number) (as opposed to a A5 visa) or to bituach leumi (National Insurance), or health care.

I was also a victim of this tactic, but I got a better arrangement while my fate was decided (I got a humanitarian visa and the right to hold a teudat zehut). I got this based on a liberal conversion I made in the diaspora (my lawyer told me “don’t disclose that you’re a charedi convert ” – she was right, It could have hurt me).

I was in the seminary, and this woman came and asked me “do you think that when I come back, they will give me a teudat zehut?” She said it in such a tone that it broke my heart. I couldn’t tell her “yes”.

I know of cases where the Rabbanut said yes, but the Interior Ministry said no.

The head of the Exceptions Committee is, naturally, a Shasnik.

(Ed. Note: I haven’t checked this out yet.)

Then I realized I couldn’t simply vote for these people or their enablers (and this includes Gafni and Litzman).

I can forgive what they did to me, but I couldn’t forgive what they are doing to others.

I know you may think that I’m wrong, that Lapid is worse, and I would understand that.

But I simply couldn’t.

====

In a second email, my correspondent added the following:

I forgot to tell you that this is not the fault of the Rabbanut.

They make it seem as if it’s the Rabbanut, but the Rabbanut is basically strangled by the secular authority (the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Religious Affairs).

Inside the Rabbanut, there is also a certain school of thought that rejects any non-State sanctioned conversion (they would accept army conversions over a charedi private conversion), but many there are innocent and good people that have very good intentions.

I suspect that’s why Shas would like to take control of the ministry of aliyah and integration and change the Law of Return.

The excuse is always the Reform and the Russian non-Jews, but given that they already attempted to exclude converts in general from the right of return, I wouldn’t be surprised that they would try to do that again.

(Ed. Note: I haven’t heard that they have been trying to exclude converts, generally, from the right to move to Israel, and BH I will be looking into this.)

Remember last week’s parsha?

אָרוּר, מַטֶּה מִשְׁפַּט גֵּר-יָתוֹם–וְאַלְמָנָה; וְאָמַר כָּל-הָעָם, אָמֵן.

====

Not everyone wants to advance those weird agendas.

Particularly, we know that the Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi is trying to fix much stuff inside.

Also inside the Interior Ministry, there are very nice people without power who are willing to help (they can’t usually)

I also used to be too judgy regarding the Rabbanut but I learned that inside it, there are many Rabbanim who do believe that the ultimate criteria of acceptance is not politics/economic situation but halacha.

They just do what they think is right.

I honestly think this is hurting the religious community (attempting to tell the chilonim (secular Jews) who they should marry and stuff proved to work against us).

I may be paranoid, but now I get why Ben Gurion offered us the status quo. There is famous Israeli religious university professor who used to say that Ben Gurion himself told him that he didn’t want to have religion and state separated, because that way he would have the power to control religion.

I think army conversions (which from what I know, makes many Rabbanut rabbis feel uncomfortable) are a proof of that.

The Rabbanut cannot even decide how many time a ulpan giur should last. (Ulpan giur is the conversion process). For citizens, it will always last 10 months (everyone has to finish the process in 10 months) – but no Beit Din in the world has such a restriction.

Keep up the good work Rivka, and pray for us.

====

Lots to think about, isn’t there?

I will start looking into all this stuff with the Interior Ministry, and we’ll see what fantastic can of worms is about to open up over there, too.

The one thing that I just want to note, is that I don’t think the Gadolei haDor like Rav Berland and Rav Kanievsky told us to vote ‘gimmel’ from a political perspective, odd as that sounds. No true gadol gives a stuff about the Knesset at this point in time, they have their eye on the geula process, and just making the transition from where we are right now to that stage as easy as possible.

Voting ‘gimmel’ was just part of the heavenly plan to totally hamstring the secular, totally corrupt, political apparatus in Israel, while we’re waiting for the last bit of the geula process to unfold.

No truly God-fearing party could ever head a government in the State of Israel, and be complicit in all the murders, crime, and vice that is happening every single day. We are still not even uncovering the tip of the iceberg, but soon, all the awful corruption will start to come out.

What’s clear is that ‘politics’ is not the answer to what’s going on here.

(Hopefully, more of the ‘religious’ people out there are starting to realise that.)

What’s required is to tear all this old, corrupt stuff down, and to rebuild it anew, with justice, morality and Torah at its base.

And that’s exactly what Moshiach is going to do.

The main question for us at this stage, is how does God want us to respond to what’s going on with the  State-sponsored abuse of sincere, orthodox converts while we’re waiting for that to happen?

UPDATE:

I just got this over email:

Please change your description of the B1 visa (you don’t have to be Jewish according the law of return to get it, that’s the A1 visa).
Looks like what I posted up from the Nefesh B’Nefesh website is wrong. Just goes to show how much confusion is reigning on this subject, if even they can’t keep their visa information straight.

In our prayers, we ask God to save us from the ‘Medina of Gehinnom’.

I think I’m starting to figure out what that’s really referring to.

On Sunday, I stuck an overnight bag in the car, unplugged my laptop and drove up to Kadita, a small village made mostly of recycled wood, close to Tsfat.

Kadita is hidden in the middle of the Birya Forest’s pines and hills – and even with a map and directions to guide me, it still took me the best part of an hour to find it. Part of the problem was that what my host was calling a ‘road’ was actually sign-posted as a bike track. After the fourth attempt, I finally found the ‘road’, and pretended my Hyundai i20 was really a jeep.

Sometimes, a car’s gotta do what a car’s gotta do.

And my car had to drive up a steep dirt track that was much better suited to goats than tyres.

====

I didn’t really notice how bad the road was, as I was just concentrating intently on following instructions for how to find the place, a small rental shack in the middle of a farm, with no internet and barely any electricity.

Everything was solar powered, which meant the fridge switched off at night, and I was left with the light of two struggling lightbulbs. For the two days I was there, I spent most of the time trying to get my manuscript describing the 16 4 Element personalities into good enough shape so that I could send it off to an editor, for the next stage.

I went to bed early – 9pm – because the light was so bad and it was pitch black outside. I started to get that this is how people used to live, before the advent of electricity and street lighting, and I could see it had some big pros – and also some big cons. Life was certainly simpler and more ‘home’ focused in the past, because really, there wasn’t any other choice.

The roads were treacherous enough to traverse in the daylight, let alone when you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face.

====

I woke up early in the morning, around 6am, and went to explore the neighborhood as part of my daily hour long hitbodedut, or ‘talking to God’ session. Which is when I stumbled across the tomb of Rabbi Tarfon, a tanna, who was buried halfway up a hill at an achingly beautiful site where his tomb was partially covered by one of the biggest, wide-trunked trees I’d ever seen in my life – ‘The Tree of Mercy.’

That ‘Tree of Mercy’ had to be at least a 1000 years old, if it was a day.

I had the place to myself, and as I sat there watching the sun come up over the surrounding hill, backlighting the groves of olive trees dotted all around, I sighed a deep sigh. If not for electricity pylons and their bobbing bright orange buoys, this same sight could have been seen for the last 5000 years…

I started poking around Rabbi Tarfon’s tomb, wishing that I knew a little more about him and who he was, when I came to a sign that had been hung against that massive tree. I’m reproducing exactly what the sign said, below:

====

The Tree of Mercy

The tree you see before you used to be a sapling. At that time, Jews had hope that one day, Hashem, in His great strength, would place His holy nation within the borders of the Land of Israel. The tree grew tall, and stands strong for the world to see.

At the end of one long and wide branch, the tree grows once more, but in small form. The short growth on the branch reminds us that we ourselves as only a remnant of a mighty nation, the generation that returned.

We should not be satisfied and settle for less than Hashem asks of us.

Hashem will hear us, on the day we call. Call to Hashem, that He grants His mercy to our generation; that through this mercy Israel will be restored to its former state and to its former spiritual status.

May it be that through our love, fear and unshakeable belief in Him, through our Torah study, mitzvahs and good deeds for one another, He will continuously keep us close to Him, so we never wander away again.

====

Under this message, which quite took my breath away, was the following:

Rabbi Tarfon says: The day is short and the work is multiplying, and the workers are lazy, and the salary is great, and the Baal HaBayit (owner) is insistent.

He used to say: It’s not for you to finish the job, but you are also not a ‘free agent’ to absolve yourself from doing it.

If you learned a lot of Torah, you will be given a lot of reward. The ‘owner’ of the operation is trustworthy, to pay you for your work. And know! The reward of the tzaddikim is given in the world to come.

Pirkei Avot 2: 15-16

====

What can I add to that, that wouldn’t just detract?

I felt like Hashem was talking straight to me, via Rabbi Tarfon. I stood up to go, and noticed a peeling sticker that had been stuck to the backside of the ner tamid, the memorial light set up over Rabbi Tarfon’s marker stone. It said:

I believe with total faith in the coming of the Moshiach. And even though he tarries, despite this, I will continue to wait for him every single day, that he should come.

====

My husband asked me to stop here. I’m respecting his wishes.
