What were the various government organisations and institutions saying and doing, in the lead up to Meron 5781?

That’s what we’re going to take a look at in this post, as part of our effort to establish the wider context of the atrocity that occurred on L’ag B’omer, when 45 were crushed to death, thanks to the police.

Before we get into all that paperwork side of things, I want to bring a couple of videos to your attention.

WARNING: These are hard to watch.

They show groups of feral policemen mamash violently kicking and beating chareidim – for no obvious reason – all over the RASHBI complex, in the hours leading up to the tragedy.

====

SCREENSHOT FROM THE ABOVE CLIP:

====

This next one comes from Chananya Weissman’s Rumble channel, HERE:

====

SCREENSHOT FROM THE ABOVE CLIP:

====

And this one I posted up here already, from the Tomer Devorah blog HERE:

Again, it shows a group of police brutally ejecting peaceful chareidim from Kever of the RASHBI, in the hours leading up to the atrocity:

====

SCREENSHOT FROM THE ABOVE CLIP:

====

For every one of these clips, there are literally 100s of accounts of police brutality against chareidim in Meron, before the tragedy happened later that night.

One of Rav Berland’s close students, Rav Nachman Horowitz, left a message on the Breslov Line around 6pm the evening of L’ag B’omer, warning about the police brutality that was going on.

Here’s a little of what he said:

“Rabotai, [this is] literally a war. They [the police] removed all the women, now they are by the men. Wars! They are not allowing entry, people are sacrificing their lives, we need to pray….”

Two minutes later, he collapsed and had a massive heart-attack in the Kever.

There are unconfirmed reports that this occurred just after he got ‘pepper-sprayed’ by the police.

====

It’s hard to watch these clips, and to not have the uncomfortable idea that the police in Meron were relating to the chareidim there as somewhat ‘subhuman’.

You know, just one level up from gorillas, or dogs, that you can kick around, beat up, drag around the floor violently – basically, treat like human garbage – and apparently without being at all worried about the consequences of being caught on camera violently abusing hundreds of people.

Except of course, I’m sure these police would actually be very nice to dogs and gorillas.

====

So, the first piece of evidence we have about the ‘official position’ towards the visitors to Meron this year is:

  1. Rampant, extreme and unjustified police brutality against religious Jews, all over the RASHBI complex in the hours leading up to the disaster at the stairs.

====

Next, we have the strange matter of the ‘disappearing cameras’.

The day before L’ag B’omer, Wednesday April 28, 2021, many people reported that the police went through the Rashbi compound removing all the cameras – including from private institutions including those belonging to Rabbi Shraga Schnitzer and ‘Hilula DeRashbi’, and those belonging to Rabbi Kuperstock, and others.

In this video, you can see the ‘official cameras’ in the women’s section of the RASHBI kever being dismantled on that Wednesday:

====

Here’s a screenshot:

====

If we had some footage from that cross-section at the bottom of the stairs, that would clearly show what barriers were emplaced where, and by whom, and with what result….

Well.

That would clear up so much of this confusion about really happened to kill 45 people and injure 150 more, wouldn’t it?

If you’re still going with the ‘this was all a tragic accident’ idea – and you’re entitled to do that – please explain to me why the police dismantled every single camera in the complex the day before L’ag B’omer, that they didn’t have full control over?

====

There’s an account that I haven’t been able to yet confirm that Eli Freund, the Meron Site administrator wrote a letter to the Police Commander, Shimon Lavi, the day after the disaster, asking him why the police had removed the cameras, and what were they trying to hide.

I think we’re starting to ‘surface’ at least a little of what the police may have been trying to hide, the last few days.

So, the second piece of evidence about the ‘official position’ in Meron is this:

2. All cameras that were not police cameras were cut off in the RASHBI compound the day before L’ag B’omer, by the police.

Let’s continue, because there is still so much more ground to cover.

====

The next thing I want to take a look at is the exits in and out of the Toldos Aharon complex.

If you go HERE, you’ll find a very detailed investigation in Hebrew, examining what was going on with the exits in and around the Toldos Aharon complex, and the RASHBI compound, generally.

The author says he interviewed hundreds of witnesses before coming to his conclusion that it was all the gates, fences and checkpoints that the Ministry of Health insisted should be put up INSIDE the RASHBI compound itself, that actually caused the massive crush on the ramp that was the SINGLE EXIT LEFT OPEN from the Toldos Aharon compound.

Here’s a google translated snippet of the original Hebrew (emphasis mine):

It turns out that what caused the seemingly terrible disaster, is the placement of many barriers between all the lighting complexes and the Zion complex. 

Barriers had been set up in general, to delimit the areas, thus limiting the number of participants in one place in real time, in order to prevent infection of the corona virus, with no connection to public safety in the context of overcrowding or congestion, but purely corona restrictions.

In all the years that have passed, before the Corona era, except for the main entrances and exits, no checkpoints have been set up inside the compound, and the events passed safely, although apparently even then the safety situation in terms of congestion was very bad.

As stated this year, due to the requirement of the Ministry of Health, a number of checkpoints were set up, which caused a huge load in the stairwell where the disaster occurred.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a video walking around the RASHBI compound the day before L’ag B’omer, 5781.

The following screenshots come from that video – and they give a sense of just how ‘penned in’ and blocked the whole compound was, by ‘Ministry of Health’-required gates and fences.

====

====

====

====

Even at this stage, you can see how the person who is shooting this video is finding it really hard to easily move around the RASHBI complex, and to navigate all these fences.

Now, times that by 20,000 people and start to understand that whoever planned the layout of these fences, promoting the health and safety of the crowd was NOT the main consideration in their minds.

Let’s continue.

====

According to that report, above, the following three additional exits into and out of the Toldos Aharon complex were blocked on this L’ag B’omer:

EXIT 1:

Via the back of the Tzion, down the stairs.

(We saw this exit already blocked with two sets of Ministry of Health fences on April 28, 2021, in the pictures above.)

EXIT 2:

From the top floor of the Tzion, via a ‘balcony passage’ that normally leads to a large central exit that opens out towards the Boyaner complex in Meron, and from there down some stairs to the Toldos Aharon complex.

This was blocked by Ministry of Health fences, the night of L’ag B’omer.

EXIT 3:

From the Boyaner Complex itself, another wide staircase located in the women’s section (but also used by men), which leads down to the Toldos Aharon complex.

This exit was also blocked by Ministry of Health fences, the night of L’ag B’omer.

====

That left just one exit open, the night of L’ag B’omer – the infamous ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs.

This exit was already known to create a dangerous, potentially fatal bottle neck, even on regular years where there were no additional fences, checkpoints, or overcrowding because of Shabbat.

So, here’s our third piece of evidence about the ‘official position’ in Meron:

3. Three out of the four usual exits in and out of the Toldos Aharon Complex were deliberately blocked by the police / Ministry of Health / government ahead of this year’s L’ag B’omer celebration.

====

Now, let’s go back to the Fire and Rescue Services Report into what needed to happen for L’ag B’omer 5781 to pass safely.

(You can see the PDF of that report, in Hebrew, HERE.)

It’s addressed to one ‘Tzvi Hiller’, who is apparently associated with Toldos Aharon in some capacity.

(I’m using all these qualifying statements, because until I check all these details out, I don’t know if they are actually true, and I can’t find an iota of information about this ‘Tzvi Hiller’ outside of this report, which is exclusively found on Ynet.)

It’s dated April 19, 2021, and amongst other things, it says the following, at #7 in the section on ‘SUGGESTIONS’ (highlighted in the screenshot below):

====

TRANSLATION of #7:

The enclosed area outside the building [i.e. RASHBI’s Tomb]:

In the enclosed area outside the building, which is not covered, there should be at least two totally separate ways out…If the gathering exceeds 6,000 people, there should be at least three exits. If the gathering exceeds 9,000 people, there should be at least four exits.

====

What we learn from this is the following:

> Crowds of above 9,000 people in the Toldos Aharon complex require at least 4 exits, to prevent dangerous overcrowding.

> Every year in L’ag B’omer, there are usually at least four exits out of the Toldos Aharon compound, as detailed above.

? This year, the government /Ministry of Health / police blocked three of those exits out of the Toldos Aharon complex, leaving just one: the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’, open.

Therefore:

Whoever signed off on these additional three exits being blocked with ‘Ministry of Health’ fences – in stark contravention of the Fire and Rescue services report from April 19th – is responsible for the dangerous overcrowding, that at least contributed to 45 people dying, and 150 people being injured in Meron.

====

Let’s just add in to more things, and then we’re done for this post.

I want to turn your attention back to the two ‘safety engineers’ who were recently questioned by Lahav 443.

(You can read the original story in Hebrew HERE, and the YWN English version HERE.)

Here’s the relevant snippet, for this post:

[Lawyers for the engineers said:]

The disaster happened only because the police chose to ignore the professionals despite the fact that the police themselves required the organizers to hire safety professionals.”

The engineers said that they transferred a report of the safety pitfalls at the site to the police as early as April 25… [and t]he safety engineers demanded as early as January that all the hadlakos at Meron be carried out at the same time in order to prevent large amounts of people from moving from place to place.

“We warned about crowding not because of COVID but because of Shabbat,” the engineers said. “We estimated that masses of people would arrive all at once and that’s what happened.” 

Furthermore, following a safety assessment of Meron last month, the safety engineer sent a letter on April 26 to the police officer at the Northern Police District responsible for licensing and security, stating that a balcony erected on the site “narrowed the entrance of the emergency exit leading to the Toldos Aharon [stairs]. In an emergency, this obstacle poses a danger and can lead to a bottleneck.

====

Here we have the two safety engineers for Meron stating that they sent the Police reports about potential overcrowding at Meron as early as January 2021, because of the Shabbat pressure on L’ag B’omer this year.

And what did the police do with all those recommendations the safety engineers made?

They totally ignored them.

And not only that, the police / Ministry of Health / government put fences and checkpoints and gates in place to make a number of additional, potentially dangerous ‘bottlenecks’ all over the RASHBI complex this year.

Are we starting to see who was clearly responsible for the atrocity in Meron this year?

And it’s getting harder and harder to keep claiming all this happened ‘accidentally’.

====

Here’s the last bit of information on the ‘official position’ for this post:

There were many eyewitnesses who stated that when they were trying to leave the dangerously overcrowded Toldos Aharon complex BEFORE the fatal crush happened, the police blocked them, and forced them back into the crowd.

Here’s some more video, from Chananya Weissman’s Rumble channel, showing what some of these ‘impromptu’ police ‘roadblocks’ looked like.

And they were happening all over the RASHBI complex all evening, and particularly before that fatal ‘crush’ occurred just after Toldos Aharon lit their bonfire, at approximately 12:30am.

====

SCREENSHOT BELOW:

====

If all this ‘blocking’ was being done in the name of ‘COVID 19’ regulations, how can we explain that the Ministry of Health believed that penning large crowds of people behind fences and gates for long stretches of time was meant to help ‘prevent the spread of COVID’?

So, if all this deliberate overcrowding wasn’t being done to ‘prevent the spread of COVID 19’, and wasn’t being done to ‘crowd control’ and help people move around safely – then why was it being done?

THAT is the question.

More footage that clearly shows the police barrier at ‘Area 41’ in Meron still operating 20 minutes after ‘the crush’.

***Important updates below***

Today, I was planning to leave the police barrier alone, and to look more at what else was going on around the RASHBI site, on L’ag B’omer 2021.

I’m collecting a lot of info, and BH we will keep putting it together, and putting it up on the site, so you can see what really happened that night – and who stands to gain.

But God decided otherwise, and in the course of researching those other details, I came across this article, on the YNET site:

https://www.ynet.co.il/news/article/rJTrYk5Du

====

It had a ‘blow by blow’ (fake news…) account of what was meant to have happened in Meron, together with lots of embedded video from the night of ‘the tragedy’.

And that’s when I noticed some interesting footage of the police barrier at Area 41- that mysterious metal beam I talked about HERE – that clearly showed it was still operating as a barrier at least 20 minutes after the crush.

I screen-recorded the whole video – and then a weird thing happened.

As soon as I was done, YNET seems to have scrubbed all that embedded video off their article.

Maybe it’s just me, and my PC that is now blocked from seeing it…. Go to the link, and check it out for yourselves.

====

Lucky for me, I recorded the good stuff before they did that, and below, I want to show you what I found.

(If you can’t see the whole thing embedded below, then open it in a new tab and view it that way.)

Also – please feel free to upload this to Youtube, and Brighteon, and anywhere else you can, as they are trying to scrub the evidence that the police were directly to blame for the ‘atrocity’ in Meron all the time.

I have no copyright on any of the stuff I’m putting up here, so use whatever you can wherever you can, to get the truth out.

====

Let me talk you through what you are seeing, with some screenshots.

Clip 1:

It shows just how ‘fast paced’ the terrible crush was, coming out of the only exit the police left open from the Toldos Aharon complex, at around 12:41 am – around 10 minutes after the Rebbe of Toldos Aharon lit his bonfire.

Clearly, it was totally impossible for anyone to ‘turn around and go back’ up that ramp, as people were apparently being directed to do, by the police.

====

CLIP 2:

Takes us from a side entrance straight up into ‘AREA 41’.

====

As soon as the cameraman makes the left, to turn into ‘AREA 41’ – you can see the police barrier:

====

If you watch the video, you can clearly see the metal barrier going up and down, on the pivot to the right, as it’s being continually held up by someone there.

I ask you again: If this is not a fixed, pre-planned barrier, and just some ‘random’ metal beam that appears to be there, why not just remove it totally out of the way?

This video is being shot a full 20 minutes after the deadly crush began.

And you can clearly see that the metal beam is functioning as a police ‘barrier’ – exactly like you get in carparks.

====

This next screenshot shows that the barrier was clearly at ‘Area 41’ directly next to the stairs where the fatal ‘crush’ occurred:

====

CLIP 3:

Shows AREA 41 at the time the crush happened.

The barrier is now ‘invisible’, as it’s in the lowered position which caused the crush, and surrounded by bodies.

====

CLIP 4:

Shows people escaping from the crush, from THE BACK of the stairs, via the ‘exit’ created when they ripped away some of the metal sheeting from the sides.

Notice that the barrier is now visible again.

====

UPDATE:

My friend C.A. sent me this link, which also very clearly shows where the police barrier was emplaced, and how it was functioning mamash like the barriers you see in carparks:

====

Now, let’s explain how we see some people escaping the crush from the right hand side, as you see in Clip 4.

====

Why don’t the people in front of them also then just ‘escape’, at this point?

Here’s the answer:

====

The people on the stairs themselves were ‘trapped’ behind that permanent railing, you see above.

Even with the white metal sheeting ripped off, they were still stuck behind these metal railings to the side, and blocked at the front from hundreds of people who’d fainted, collapsed and even died, in the crush created by the police at the bottom of those stairs.

====

Let’s just recap, how the police DELIBERATELY blocked the only exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex, at the busiest time of the evening:

Between 12:30 -12:41 am – as the Toldos Aharon Rebbe was lighting his bonfire – they block the RIGHT HAND exit with a standard police gate:

====

In the shot above, you can clearly see how all the blue bottles, the kippahs, the kids bimbot – all the stuff left over from the fatal crush that just took place there ALL STOPS JUST IN FRONT OF THAT POLICE GATE.

Why does all the ‘mess’ stop there?

Because that’s where the gate was, that caused the crush on the right hand side of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps, aka Area 42.

It really is that simple.

====

Then, around 12:41:41 am, on the side of the stairs at the left hand exit, ‘AREA 41’, the police lowered this barrier down, and sent in a team of at least 10 cops to ‘push back’ anyone trying to pass it:

====

====

They did that for 30 seconds, a minute – enough for the people at the front in AREA 41 to be totally crushed against the barrier and unable to move.

Meanwhile, the people careening down the oiled ramp behind them continued to increase the pressure to the point where people started to faint and asphyxiate to death, adding to the crush at the ‘blockage’ at the bottom of the stairs.

====

The police refuse to raise the barrier in Area 41, and also refuse to move the gate blocking the stairs in Area 42 for a number of minutes.

Tens of people literally died in front of their eyes at this point, yet many eyewitnesses recount that the police ‘on the scene’ were waiting for some sort of ‘permission’ from their seniors, before opening the gate in Area 42 and raising the barrier in Area 41.

If you read THIS POST, yesterday, you’ll already have a good idea what they were waiting for.

====

Now, let’s prove that this police barrier at ‘AREA 41’ was planned, and an integral part of the structure the police built there, especially for L’ag B’omer, 2021.

Literally as I was typing this post, a friend of mine sent me this screenshot:

====

Let’s take a look at the front metal beam that’s forming the ‘X’ shape you see in the structure directly in front of the stairs.

====

====

Friends, what this shows us – clearly – is that:

  1. The police built a structure specifically for L’ag B’omer that contained a ‘secret barrier’.
  2. This secret barrier was used to create the fatal crush at ‘Area 41’ that built up sometime after 12:41:41 am.
  3. The police then lied that there was a barrier there, or that they had blocked the exit.
  4. BUT THE SECRET POLICE BARRIER WAS INCLUDED IN THE CONSTRUCTION FROM THE OUTSET.

====

Now, you tell me:

Was what happened in Meron an ‘accident’, or was it pre-meditated, state-sponsored murder?

====

TBC

====

UPDATE:

The following image clearly showing a double gate barrier across the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps, apparently earlier in the day on L’ag B’omer, was uploaded to Telegram today:

====

This image, clearly showing a double gate by AREA 42 the morning after the atrocity was also uploaded to Telegram today:

====

BH, more and more information is starting to flow, that clearly shows that gates were in the area of ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps on L’ag B’omer, and were being used to block the flow of people.

This is something that the police and the media have been denying, and we have proved that they were lying.

Until and unless we get some more footage, or information, about where these gates actually were placed at 12:41:41 am, we’re still half-guessing here, as to how the police actually did it tachlis.

It’s all very confusing and disturbing, I appreciate that.

But each of us that tries to put our soul power into doing this birur – it’s making a huge difference spiritually, to getting to the real truth.

Even though all this can be very hard going.

It’s time to ‘zoom out’ from Areas 41 and 42, and take a closer look at what was being planned for the Toldos Aharon complex, the night of L’ag B’omer.

***Updates below***

Like many other people, the first real ‘news’ I heard from the MSM about what was happening in Meron on L’ag B’omer 5781, was reports that ‘bleachers had collapsed’.

This story from the Jewish Press has already been changed to reflect ‘reality’, but here’s the original headline, as it was originally reported (thanks to reader Adelle, for capturing this before they went back and rewrote it):

www.jewishpress.com/news/israel/mass-casualty-event-in-meron-as-stage-collapses/2021/04/30/

Here’s a snippet:

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Yosef Chaim Ben Tzion who was one of the first responders at the scene and participated in the CPR relayed:

“A number of the injured are in critical condition and a large number of people were moderately injured after a grandstand collapsed with dozens of people on it.

“Doctors, paramedics, and EMTs from United Hatzalah who were providing medical security for the event rushed to respond and initiated CPR on a number of individuals while treating the others for their injuries.”

====

I bolded the bit I want you to pay attention to.

Does it strike you as at all strange, that there is a quote from a Hatzalah ‘First Responder’, explaining that a ‘large number of people were moderately injured after a grandstand collapsed with dozens of people on it’ – when that never happened?

And it was obvious – to all the first responders who were called in to help, right from the start – that they weren’t dealing with a ‘grandstand collapsing’?

So why were so many of the MSM outlets carrying so many stories – immediately! – that there was a massive structure collapse in the Toldos Aharon complex, that had killed and wounded a large number of people with horrific injuries?

====

In another scrubbed story, I’m pretty sure I remember seeing a quote from Eli Beer saying that the injuries being seen were so awful, they were reminiscent of the bus bombings in Jerusalem.

And there were lots of quotes in the MSM from first responders talking about people being ‘seperated from their limbs’, and first responders not knowing which limb belonged to which victim.

====

At the time, I put all this down to understandable confusion.

But then when the real story came out, as to what had occurred by the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs, and how 45 people had been asphyxiated to death – that slew of stories about ‘balconies’ collapsing in Toldos Aharon, and ‘stages’ collapsing in Toldos Aharon, and ‘bleachers’ collapsing in Toldos Aharon started to really bother me.

It also bothered me that so many of the MSM news site were running stories – immediately! – flagging the vast majority of victims as Toldos Aharon chassidim, including small children, and running ‘in-depth’ pieces about Toldos Aharon chassidut.

Like this:

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/what-is-toldot-aharon-hassidic-sect-whose-members-were-killed-at-meron-666808

What did these journalists know – or think that they knew – that even before the victims were identified, they were so sure they were all from Toldos Aharon?

====

It’s taken a week and a half to ascertain, beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt, that ‘the police’ deliberately blocked both sides of the only exit leading out of the Toldos Aharon complex sometime between 12:41 am and 12:44 am.

But now, we have to start asking ourselves why?

Why would the police do something so clumsy, so obvious, as to deliberately block the only exit, watch 45 people suffocate to death, and then try to brazen it out in the face of hundreds of eye witnesses – plus tens of videos – that clearly saw them do it?

For sure, they were out to ‘teach the chareidi world’ a lesson in Meron this year.

But what happened at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps really only starts to make sense, if we put it in its proper context.

====

Let’s start with this.

It’s video that was uploaded to Chananya Weissman’s Rumble channel, HERE:

====

It’s in Hebrew, but here’s a rough description of what the guy who took it is saying, together with screenshots:

It’s a three story walkway, or stage, possibly part of the ‘mehadrin’ men-only route in Meron, OR part of the Toldos Aharon stage, in the Toldos Aharon complex.

Can any readers help to identify where this was, and what it actually was?

Either way, there were literally tons of people on it the night of L’ag B’omer – and it was all being held up by a single screw and two ‘jumbo’ hooks.

Here’s a screenshot of ‘jumbo’ hook #1:

====

And here’s a screenshot of the top of the handrails, secured by just one screw, and half hanging off the base:

 

====

Watch the video so see exactly how this compromised the structural integrity of the the three tiered stage / walkway it’s attached to.

The guy in the video explains that there was many tons of people on this structure the night of L’ag B’omer, and it’s only by some massive miracle that the whole thing didn’t collapse.

And the whole thing was being held up all night by this single screw, and two blue canvas straps attached to a couple of ‘jumbo’ metal hooks embedded in rock, on either side of it.

====

But there’s more.

Many of the eyewitnesses explained how the ramp was unusually slippery around the time of the atrocity.

Even two and three days after L’ag B’omer, people were still slipping on the ramp.

In this video – also from Chananya Weissman’s Rumble account – there’s a guy who walks through the whole route in Meron, pointing out a number of strange things.

In the screenshot below, you see him picking up coarse salt from the metal ramp – and he explains that coarse salt is used to absorb oil:

====

Next, he shows how many of the planks on the bleachers in the Toldos Aharon Complex weren’t actually nailed down:

====

Again, it’s not hard to see how things like this could have easily contributed to a mass-casualty event happening in the Toldos Aharon complex itself.

But there’s still more.

Next, he shows how the bleachers in the Toldos Aharon complex WERE STUCK TOGETHER WITH SILVER TAPE, instead of held together with metal bolts:

====

====

Let’s zoom in on that tape, shall we?

====

In the video, you can see that there was tape instead of screws all the way up this set of bleachers in the Toldos Aharon section, and all the way along them, too.

Take a look at around the 14th minute of the video HERE, as he walks along the bleachers located in ‘Area 51’.

But there is still more.

====

In this screenshot, you can see how one of the three storey-ed walkways connecting the different bleachers in the Toldos Aharon complex was constructed with it’s base on an uneven step.

I.e. the back left ‘leg’ of the base was on a step, making the whole structure unstable and liable to topple over when people walked on it, and especially if it was packed with people.

(I don’t need to tell you it really was packed with people on that fateful night – you already know that, don’t you?)

====

Here’s that same staircase – propped up on a chunk of wood.

If that wood got dislodged on the night of L’ag B’omer, the whole of the walkway would have toppled over, causing a lot of people to be injured and even killed.

====

We’re talking about a big stairway here, with at least 3 flights:

====

There were many, many other ‘engineering errors’ going on this year in the Toldos Aharon complex, and across Meron.

While we could chalk up one or two to laziness, or lax regulations, when you start to pull all the information together – and we’re still not done here, btw – it all builds up into a compelling picture that paints the following:

Someone designed this year’s L’ag B’omer celebration to be a mass casualty event.

There are just too many structures with serious problems that could have lead to an imminent collapse of almost every terrace, stage and walkway in the Toldos Aharon complex, if there weren’t a huge number of open miracles going on.

====

They only needed one structure to ‘collapse’ in that heavily overcrowded area.

In turn, that would have sparked a panic – the ‘stampede’ they were after – where thousands of people tried to rush down an oiled ramp, that had already been thoroughly ‘blocked’ at the bottom by a crush of people.

But no-one would have attributed that monstrous ‘crush’ – and the endless fatalities and injuries it would have caused – to police actions that deliberately blocked both sides of the exits at Areas 41 and 42 in a pre-meditated fashion just as the overcrowding in the Toldos Aharon complex reached its peak.

Instead, it would just have been blamed on the ‘collapse’ in the Toldos Aharon Complex.

Which in turn, would have been blamed on the chareidim, and the visitors for ‘overcrowding’ the site in contravention of the Fire and Rescue Services report.

And the real criminals here would have totally got away with murder.

====

Hashem loves us so much.

Heart-breaking as those 45 deaths were, this was meant to be way, way worse.

This was meant to have taken Meron and L’ag B’omer out of the picture forever, as a joyful occasion and a joyful event.

Instead, Hashem confounded their plans, the true tzaddikim sweetened the decree – and those 45 martyrs were taken as a korban, to sweeten it for the rest of us, and to start publically unravelling the real evil that’s controlling so much of the Jewish State, and the Jewish world.

And we aren’t done unpicking this yet.

====

In the next post, I want to take a look at what else was going on in Meron that night, beyond the Toldos Aharon complex.

But before I do, let me leave you with this, which comes from yesterday’s Jpost:

====

LAHAV 443, the so-called FBI of the Israeli police, launched a dawn raid on the engineers’ homes yesterday, and took them in for questioning.

LAHAV 443 were behind the first ‘framing’ of Rav Berland, so I’m not exactly filled with hope that this investigation is going to be straight and after the truth.

But, given all the irregularities I detailed above – which we all know are just the tip of the iceberg – I thought it’s actually a good sign, that the engineers who signed off on the safety plans for Meron are being questioned.

They for sure know exactly where all the structural faults were, and what exactly they were designed to do.

And it also shows that whoever is investigating this, they are at least following the correct trail to get to the truth.

So we’ll see what happens next.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

This comes from the Yeshiva World [Fake] News site, and I’m reposting in its entirety, to prevent this information from ‘being disappeared’ off the net in a week or two, when they start re-writing history again:

The two safety engineers detained for questioning on their role in the Meron disaster placed the blame for the tragic incident squarely on the shoulders of the police, Yisrael Hayom reported.

During their interrogation, the engineers asserted that they faithfully and professionally fulfilled their jobs but their recommendations were not implemented by the police.

“The disaster happened only because the police chose to ignore the professionals despite the fact that the police themselves required the organizers to hire safety professionals.”

The engineers said that they transferred a report of the safety pitfalls at the site to the police as early as April 25. According to documents that were revealed in the Yisrael Hayom report for the first time, the safety engineers demanded as early as January that all the hadlakos at Meron be carried out at the same time in order to prevent large amounts of people from moving from place to place. 
Unfortunately, this recommendation was not heeded.

“We warned about crowding not because of COVID but because of Shabbat,” the engineers said. “We estimated that masses of people would arrive all at once and that’s what happened.” 

Furthermore, following a safety assessment of Meron last month, the safety engineer sent a letter on April 26 to the police officer at the Northern Police District responsible for licensing and security, stating that a balcony erected on the site “narrowed the entrance of the emergency exit leading to the Toldos Aharon [stairs]. In an emergency, this obstacle poses a danger and can lead to a bottleneck.”

The safety engineer further warned in the letter that “due to the expected large crowds, all emergency exits must be accessible.”

The safety engineers’ lawyers issued a statement saying: “It is very unfortunate that instead of putting their own house in order, the police are seeking scapegoats.”

“Our clients recommended in writing to various parties to carry out actions to reduce the safety risks at the site. The written recommendations were submitted months before the event. Ultimately it seems that the recommendations were rejected due to pressure from various parties of interest, who were vocal then and are silent today. The conduct of our clients was never lacking. They are experienced professionals who did their work in the best way possible but whose recommendations were not heeded.”

Following their interrogation, the engineers were released to house arrest for five days, according to a statement by the police.

====

We’ll come back to what the engineers are saying in a different post.

But it sounds like they identified the problematic areas that could lead to serious safety risks for the police – and then the police used that information to design things in Meron specifically to cause a ‘mass casualty event’ this year.

How were so many people ‘trapped’ in Area 41 in Meron, when there are no visible gates?

That question has been exercising me for days now.

But thanks to a couple of my readers, and a lot of siyatta di shmeya, I think I might have the answer.

Read on, to learn how ‘the police’ managed to close down both sides of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ exit in Meron.

====

In THIS post, I put up a video that showed some very distressing footage of what was going on at the ‘Area 41’ stairs in Meron after the killer crush had already developed.

(You can see that video for yourself on Youtube HERE, and on Brighteon HERE, if you want to, but from this point on I’m trying to minimize embedding distressing footage into blog posts, unless I really need to.)

You can clearly see police cynically waving people ‘back up the stairs’ – which is initially what I was focussing on.

But then, after I watched it a few times in slow motion, trying to gather more clues, I realised something very strange:

The people at the very front of the crush in ‘Area 41’ are not moving forward, even when being pulled by the police.

But no ‘gate’ is visible, at least in the footage I’ve seen.

So what the heck was going on?

====

This screenshot comes from 1:09 seconds into THIS footage, and it clearly demonstrates the problem:

====

What was really blocking that left-hand exit, the exit out to ‘Area 41’ in Meron?

That question has been bothering me for days.

Two days ago, I was even starting to wonder if there was some ‘invisible forcefield’ going on in Meron, or some other super-hitech-super-secret nefarious ‘crowd control’ technology being tried out on those poor people who got crushed to death.

But then, a reader sent me a link to THIS – it’s a two-and-a-half-hour ‘livestream’ from Israeli TV Channel 11, the night the atrocity happened in Meron.

So yesterday, I girded my loins and started watching it, to see if I could catch more ‘clues’ with hindsight, from stuff that hadn’t yet been covered up.

====

They have a habit on these TV stations of re-running the same bit of tired footage again and again and again in the background, as someone is speaking over it.

So it was, that they kept replaying the same bit of footage of people starting to escape from the crush on the left hand side – Area 41.

And that’s when I started to notice the weird beam.

====

I’m screenshotting the below from that ‘live footage from Channel 11, which you can see HERE.

First, here’s a shot of ‘Area 41’, that shows the bottom of the stairs, and the partial railing on the right-hand side, apparently from earlier on in the evening.

The police are standing roughly where the outer edge of the ‘crush’ was located (on that side. Remember, the exit to ‘Area 42’ was also blocked by a standard double gate.)

====

Next, we have this screenshot, from around the 44 minute mark.

It clearly shows a heavy metal beam being ‘moved out of the way’, across the blocked exit at ‘Area 41’:

====

Let’s zoom in on that ‘mysterious beam’:

====

If you go and look at the live footage (around 44 min mark) you can see this beam being ‘lifted’ up.

Then, a stream of trapped people from the stairs at the left-hand exit (Area 41) start streaming out behind it.

I watched that footage maybe 20 times, before a couple of things suddenly dawned on me:

  1. What is that beam doing there in the first place?

Initially, we were being told that ‘something’ had collapsed, so the brain wasn’t flagging it as weird that a metal beam should apparently be blocking an exit like that.

But now, we know that NOTHING collapsed (more on that in a moment.)

So, why was that beam there in the first place?

====

If you want to tell me that it was holding the roof up, that’s demonstrably not the case.

Play the video, and you’ll see that the beam is way too tall to have been standing erect.

It’s a clear foot above where the roof was, in that corrugated white metal death-trap tunnel, built especially for L’ag B’omer this year, by the police and Ministry of Health.

====

I pressed ‘rewind’ to start watching the clip involving the ‘mysterious beam’ from the beginning.

In this clip, (screenshotted below) you could see the first responders starting to stream to the area.

And there was the mysterious metal beam again, clearly too long to go past the roof.

This time, I could see it had a rope tied to it’s left end, which appears to be looped over one of the heavier metal crossbeams in the police-built ‘tunnel of death’.

====

====

Now, I had even more questions.

Again, what was that beam even doing there, in the first place?

Why did it have a rope tied around one side?

When was that rope tied on to it – and why?

If you’re going to tell me that it was done to get the beam out of the way, then why not move the whole beam out of the way, instead of risking it falling on all those first responders rushing to the scene of the crush?

====

Let’s zoom in on the mysterious beam with the rope attached:

====

I was still looking for clues as to where this ‘mysterious beam’ came from in Area 41.

This screenshot also comes from the Channel 11 ‘livestream footage’, around the 49 minute mark:

====

There were similar metal beams spaced the whole length of the ‘tunnel of death’, leading up to Area 41.

Now, I’m not an engineer – and I’d really appreciate input from someone who is.

But I’m finding it hard to understand the purpose of these particular metal beams.

Also, I went back and scanned all the available footage for ‘Area 41’ near the stairs, and I just couldn’t see any ‘indentation’ where a metal beam would have been resting across that far end of the tunnel of death.

====

But this is what I currently believe to be the best hypothesis of how the exit to ‘Area 41’ got blocked by ‘the police’.

Remember, a few people in Meron – including my daughter – said they heard something ‘collapse’, ahead of the deadly crush?

I think that was the sound of this ‘beam’ being manoeuvred into place by the rope-pulley, or being ‘pulled down’ to create a low barrier that crossed the exit at the bottom of the stairs of ‘Area 41’.

Police where there to stop the first people trying to ‘get around’ it by trying to step over it, or duck under it.

And very quickly – literally within 30 seconds to a minute – enough of a crush built up from behind to literally pin peoples’ legs against the beam – just above knee level – which meant that they simply couldn’t move forward, even though it looks like nothing was blocking them.

This explanation would explain why we were seeing things like this:

====

Remember, the right hand exit, Area 42, was blocked shortly before this, with a standard double-gate, placed a little way down the steps.

So then, the crowd is all automatically going to the left-hand side, Area 41.

If you see the footage from Channel 12, (screenshotted below) you see that just as the Toldos Aharon Rebbe was lighting his bonfire, in the few minutes before 12:41 am, both exits off the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ are open, and the stairs themselves look relatively empty.

====

Immediately after the fire was lit, a large number of people decided to leave via the only open exit the police and Ministry of Health left open – ‘Reb Dov Shvil’.

Between 12:41:41 am and 12:44am, the right hand exit (Area 42) is blocked with a double gate, while the left hand exit (Area 41) is blocked by a ‘fallen beam’.

Then, a bunch of police threaten people to stay put, while the deadly crush very quickly builds up behind them, pinning them next to the ‘fallen beam’ and making it impossible for them to move forward, even when being pulled by the hands.

Eyewitnesses report they were screaming at the police to remove ‘the barriers’, and that their pleas were ignored.

They also report that the police only removed ‘the barriers’ once they’d got permission from their superiors to do so.

====

What were they waiting for?

Why did ‘the police’ go to all that trouble to block the exit with a metal construction beam, that was apparently designed to ‘collapse’ in just the right way,and  just the right place, to instantly create a death-trap-log-jam at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs?

Which was the ONLY exit out of the crowded Toldos Aharon complex, just above.

I have some potential answers to these questions, too.

BH, in the next blog post we’ll zoom out to the ‘bigger picture’ of what was going in Meron that night.

And then we’ll start to really understand just how much God loves the Jewish people, just how evil our enemies really are, and just how many miracles occurred that night in Meron.

====

The 45 didn’t die for nothing.

They were martyrs for the whole of the Jewish people, hand-picked by Hashem to sweeten the decrees on the nation of Israel, and to finally help us identify and uproot the true evil in our midst.

And now that we’ve cleared up (as best we can…) what was going on at the site of the stairs, we can turn our attention to why ‘the police’ wanted that exit blocked up in the first place, and why they literally thought they were going to get away with murder, that night in Meron.

TBC

UPDATE:

A couple of readers just sent me THIS:

They are closing down Meron to visitors for Rosh Chodesh Sivan, as part of their ‘thin end of the wedge’ operation, to start taking more and more of our holy sites out of the picture, and off limits.

It’s a temporary state of affairs, mamash the last few skirmishes of the Sitra Achra against daat and Torah and our True Tzaddikim.

But they won’t win this time.

Just keep praying and working on our bad middot, and wait and see how all this will turn around, BH.

You want to know the real reason for this ‘upswing’ in violence the last couple of days?

***Important updates below***

Here it is, from 5:49am this morning:

Lapid and Bennett almost announced formation of gov’t

Security escalation prevented Yamina chairman and Yesh Atid chairman from asking President to swear in a government as early as next week.
====

And here in Israel, it’s not just ‘conspiracy theorists’ like myself who are starting to make these connections.

My kids belong to a hardcore, dati leumi ra-ra ‘State of Israel’ crowd.

Yesterday, one of them got sent a long message by a friend that basically said this:

I think Bibi is behind all this violence. Every time they are about to pick someone else for Prime Minister, the violence starts up again. And then when he’s ‘safe’ as Prime Minister, it goes away again.

====

I was so pleased when she told me this.

Why?

Because it means that the zeitgeist of understanding what is really going on here, and who is really behind it, is starting to go mainstream.

Geula doesn’t require everyone to open their eyes and start to understand and acknowledge the truth.

It just requires a critical mass of people – and we are fast, fast approaching it.

====

A lot of my kids’ friends live in Maaleh Zeitim.

That’s the Jewish neighborhood at the top right hand of the Mount of Olives cemetery, that’s usually heavily guarded by magavnikim and always at the heart of so much of the violence that goes on, in and around the Old City.

Yesterday, one of the cars driving out of Maaleh Zeitim got pelted with stones and rocks, leading to a horrible smash up – where an Arab rock-thrower basically got run over at high speed, but then bizarrely got up and walked away.

The whole story is setting off my BS-O-Meter, I’m not even sure why, but here’s the real story I want to tell you about Maaleh Zeitim.

====

Two days ago, the brother of one of my kid’s really good friends in Maaleh Zeitim were walking back home in a group of his friends, when some Arab teens ambushed them and started pelting them with rocks.

So, the brother and his friend started throwing rocks back, in self-defense, and then managed to get home.

A little while later, the police showed up – and arrested the friend’s brother.

The family have no idea what’s happening with him, and haven’t been able to speak with him.

BH, after everything that’s happened with the Rav, and with the murder of Ahuvya Sandek, and with the mass-murder project at Meron – we’re all praying he’s OK, and not being harmed.

====

Yesterday, my husband told me the Border Police stormed Al Aksa mosque, and fired stun grenades at the worshippers.

There were no rock-throwing terrorists there, no-one was doing anything except lying on the floor and prostrating themselves to Allah.

My husband is a-political, really hates all the ‘conspiracy theory’ stuff and plays a very straight bat.

Even he told me:

Why would they do that, on Yom Yerushalayim, at the end of Ramadan, except as an act of deliberate provocation to the Arabs?

Exactly.

====

Then also yesterday, my daughter told me an (unconfirmed…) story that in Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza, they ‘accidentally’ killed three small kids, and there is footage of that.

She said to me:

Everyone is going to really hate us now, and it’s going to go crazy….

Today – I can’t find that story anywhere.

Not even on ‘Israel-bashing’ websites like the BBC, which is so, so strange, to say the least.

====

Because – for sure – if there is footage of Israeli bombs ‘accidentally’ killing three small kids in Gaza – well, hell-ooo match to light the fuse on the tinderbox.

In fact, you couldn’t dream up a better ‘match’ to light the fuse than that story, if you were hell-bent on starting another war in the Middle East, to save your job and the NWO plans for global domination and the ‘Great Reset’, that are being co-ordinated out of Israel.

But somehow…. it didn’t happen.

====

This morning, I woke up (at 5am) to the worrying sounds of angry Arabs chanting something menacing over and over again a little way down the hill, close to my house.

(Which is close to the Temple Mount, close to the old ‘Green Line’, close to a lot of the ‘action’ that’s happening here in the Holy City.)

I lay in bed for five minutes kind of half-paralyzed with the fear that some group of crazy Arabs were going to come marching up the hill any minute, and start attacking Jewish homes.

Like mine.

God forbid, a trillion times over.

Then, I remembered that God is running the world, and that when a person is doing hitbodedut, that prevents harsh decrees from coming to the world.

====

So, I did al natilat yadayim really fast, and then started my hour of hitbodedut.

The minute I began, the menacing chanting that had been going on for half an hour just stopped, and all I could hear was the chirping of dawn birds.

====

Prayer is the answer.

Sincere, heart-felt prayer.

That’s how we get all this violence to go away, that’s how we stop all this madness, all this evil, from consuming the world.

====

What’s going on right now in Israel is so, so strange.

If you follow the headlines, you can see how everything has been deliberately constructed over the last few weeks to lead us, ‘inevitably’, into another war with the Arabs.

They have done their level best over the last few weeks to create violence, strife and division in Israel, between all communities at all levels.

Jew vs Arab

Religious vs Secular

People who go to Meron vs People who don’t believe in going to Meron

The list goes on and on and on….

And yet, everything is being continually sweetened.

As fast as they create the ‘tinderbox’, the ‘explosive situation’, the ‘excuse for escalating things even higher’ – it somehow fades as fast as it appears.

====

What’s going on here right now is totally abnormal, and clearly touching the realms of openly supernatural.

We’ll see what today brings, but right now in Jerusalem, there are no sirens – of police cars nor rockets – and all I can hear are birds chirping outside my window.

For sure, they aren’t done yet, and there will be more ‘deliberate provocations’.

But I don’t think they are going to be able to light the fuse this time around, no matter how hard they try.

And with each renewed attempt to stir things up, more people are seeing through the facade, and understanding that the people who are running the show here are really bad.

We only need a critical mass to open our eyes and understand that.

And once it happens – the evil will meltdown all by itself.

====

PS: I’m still working on what happened in Meron, and I think I’ve found footage of the ‘mysterious barrier’ that blocked the left-hand exit out of Area 41.

It was hidden in plain view, as so many things are.

BH, I will do that post a little later on today, World War III notwithstanding.

====

Prayer to avoid anger and slander against background of a snake

====

UPDATE:

One of my readers, Ana, just sent me this via email, which I’m reproducing below:

Regarding the JPOST article you referenced in your most recent post (WATCH: Attempted lynching of Israeli driver during Jerusalem riots – The Jerusalem Post (jpost.com)), what’s with the photos?

They did a re-enactment?

The scene in the photos in no way depicts anything that happened in the video – not to mention that the Jew already has a bandage on his head and the blood looks very suspicious… and the article said that the two Jews were transported to the hospital.

They were transported after the photo op with the policeman or they went back later in the day to reenact it? Also notice the slick police interview embedded in that article.

====

I have images blocked on most sites, including Jpost, so I didn’t see the fishy pictures.

Here’s what they show:

The driver of the car fighting with Arabs next to his car – with his head apparently already bandaged.

There’s also a ‘police hero’ shot of a cop ‘saving his life’ by taking out his gun and waving it around.

Whatever.

Go take a look yourselves, and see what it is you are really looking at, instead of just believing the ‘story’.

====

So then, I asked my kid to check in with her friends in Maaleh Zeit – the community where all this is meant to have happened in Jerusalem – to see if anyone knows who the driver actually is.

Guess what?

No-one in Maaleh Zeit knows him.

But they think he’s a soldier serving in a regiment that’s somehow connected to the Rabbanut.

What a CO-IN-CID-ENCE.

I know that road pretty well, and unless you are going to visit someone in Maaleh Zeit, you just don’t drive down that bit. There is nowhere else to go except DEEP into Arab Jerusalem.

I know this, because two years I tried to figure out if it was a shortcut to anywhere and I got myself trapped up a mountain in the middle of a bunch of Arabs, where I had to reverse around corners, up hills, while half the street came out to watch.

NOT a fun experience.

====

Other weird things that immediately struck me about that ‘lynch’:

Why were the frigging car doors unlocked?

I have a super basic 8 year old car – and it’s locks all the doors automatically when you start driving with central locking.

Even if you don’t have central locking (big if…) – you are being pelted by stones in an Arab neighborhood, you feel ‘trapped’ on the street, and NO-ONE in the car thinks to lock the doors?

Really?

====

Also, how come not one of those many Arabs who got ‘run over’ at high speed can be seen anywhere in the area, or at least trying to limp away in slow motion?

Who gets mowed down by a car like that, and then just gets up and runs off?

And not just one, a few of them.

====

And then, the driver of the car – with his forehead bandages that have no blood on them, and with his totally unbruised, unblemished face – even though there is apparently blood all over the front of his shirt – then goes back to his wrecked car for a photo shoot, holding massive bits of building tile that were apparently thrown at him?

People, are we really this dumb, to keep on falling for this stuff?

It’s giving the term ‘bad actor’ a whole new dimension.

====

Lastly, let me remind you of this story, where two cops were caught dressing up as chareidim in Jerusalem a couple of weeks ago, titled:

Undercover cops dressed as chareidim attacked by Arabs in Jerusalem’.

====

And now, tell me again:

WHO is lighting the fire in Jerusalem, and WHO is deliberately stirring the pot?

Here’s a clue, from 5:49am this morning:

Lapid and Bennett almost announced formation of gov’t

Security escalation prevented Yamina chairman and Yesh Atid chairman from asking President to swear in a government as early as next week.
====

You might also like this article:

Finally, we have video from the other side of the stairs in Meron, ‘Area 42’.

I just got sent this, and I’m uploading it here so you can see that most of the people who died were crushed on the RIGHT HAND side as you descend the ‘Shvil Reb Dov’ steps.

I have other footage, too, showing a gate in place there.

And I am going to spend the next day or so putting all of the information we’ve discovered together into a mini-documentary.

Once I’m done with that,

It will be clear beyond the shadow of a doubt that the police blocked BOTH sides of the ‘Shvil Reb Dov’ stairs, at exactly the same time, and deliberately caused the deaths of 45 people in Meron.

====

And then the government-sponsored shills in the media – also in the so-called ‘chareidi’ media – helped them to cover it up, by spinning false stories about ‘stampedes’ and ‘fake heart attacks‘, and by suppressing eyewitness accounts that explained what really happened, and distorting the amateur video they were sent.

Of course, Channel 12 took the ‘fake news’ to a whole new level, and I’m seriously wondering if what that journalist and his team did could lead to prosecution for acting as ‘accessories to murder’?

Hopefully, we’ll find out.

====

In the meantime, here is more video evidence of what was happening on the blocked RIGHT HAND exit from the ‘Reb Shvil Dov’ stairs, known as ‘Area 42’.

Again, viewer discretion is advised, as it’s not easy to watch.

And I’m sorry, in some ways, that I’m in a position of having to post these things up publically, in order to get to the truth.

But getting the truth out there has to be the priority, however difficult the process, and I’m praying the people who passed away – and their families – will forgive me. If I had another way of doing this, so that people would believe what really happened, I’d take that option.

But I don’t.

====

====

Ask yourself: what stopped those poor people from being able to freely move down the stairs, on the RIGHT HAND side, aka Area 42?

What, were there two ‘heart attacks’ at once, at exactly the same time, on both the left and the right-hand sides of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs?

Where is the official footage from the cameras on site showing what was happening on the RIGHT HAND side, Area 42 – an area that the Channel 12 ‘fake news’ didn’t even speak about, even though this is where most people were crushed to death?

====

Here’s more footage showing what was going on in Area 42:

====

Notice how there are NO POLICE helping to pull people out of the crush.

====

I can’t even see any first-responders in this video.

We now have video showing the police were clearly blocking the exits on both sides of the fatal ‘crush’ at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs, at exactly the same time.

That’s not an accident, or negligence.

That’s pre-meditated murder.

====

And as these two videos clearly show, the police were not helping to pull people out of the crush, or trying to save lives at that crucial time when literally every second counted.

As soon as dozens of people started dying, these police ‘disappeared’ off the scene.

====

Here’s more video, taken immediately the morning after, that clearly shows at least one gate was in place down the stairs in Area 42.

====

Take a look at 1:07 minutes – screenshotted below:

====

====

OK, let’s sum up where we’ve got to, then BH I will try to put all this together as a video, and also as a PDF that can be printed out and mass-distributed, for people who aren’t online in the chareidi world.

We cannot let the police and the government officials who signed off on this get away with pre-meditated mass murder of 45 people in Meron on L’ag B’omer.

But we can only hold these people accountable for their horrendous crimes if we act together, with achdut.

====

Here’s the (updated) facts of what happened in Meron, on L’ag B’omer.

====

At sometime between oo:41:41 and 00:44, the police blocked the RIGHT HAND exit (‘Area 42’) with a gate.

Around that same time, a large group of police (at least nine of them) also came and stood at the LEFT HAND exit, and blocked that exit, too.

====

It’s still unclear whether there was also a gate at the LEFT HAND exit, or whether the police was using pepper spray and threats of violence to keep people from leaving the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs from the left side.

You can see them – ridiculously! – pretending to ‘wave people’ back up the metal ramp, in the video below:

====

Here’s a screenshot, from around the 10 second mark:

Over the course of that 3-5 minute period, 45 people were crushed and asphyxiated to death – most of the fatalities occurred at the blocked RIGHT HAND exit, AKA ‘Area 42’.

====

Let’s leave it there for now.

BH, with God’s help I’m going to pull all these details into one package now, and try to pin down the timing as exactly as I can.

And then, it’s on to the next stage of this process:

Bringing the guilty parties to justice.

Just want to get this up now, without a lot of analysis, to make sure it’s not ‘scrubbed’ out of the record.

This is not easy video to watch, please be advised.

But it clearly shows the police were at the scene long before Channel 12 put them there.

====

UPDATE: Someone just sent me the link to this on Youtube, too, where it’s clearer to see it:

====

I will keep this version up too, tho, to make sure it’s still available in case the Youtube link gets scrubbed:

====

It also shows that BOTH SIDES of the stairs were blocked – the left-hand exit by the police, who can be seen in the video above waving people back up the stairs.

  

====

And the right hand side probably by a fence like the one below, or something similar, a little further down the steps.

(These screenshots come from a Russian-language news report into what happened in Meron. More on that another time.)

====

====

The screenshot below comes from a report from ‘ILTV’, that shows the steps that lead down off to the right-hand side of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ main stairs.

These steps are ‘Area 42’ – the area where it seems most people actually died on L’ag B’Omer.

It’s crucial to grasp that there was a RIGHT and a LEFT exit off the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil stairs, and BOTH EXITS WERE BLOCKED at the time people were crushed and asphyxiated to death there.

====

The RIGHT HAND exit (‘Area 42) off the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ seems to have been blocked by a double gate.

The LEFT HAND exit (‘Area 41’) off the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ seems to have been blocked by a group of policemen and women, and possibly also a gate, or something else.

====

BH, I will look at this much closer motzash, and what it is telling us about what really happened, but wanted to get this up and circulating widely, before it gets scrubbed.

I have additional video taken from the same angle, but showing further down the ‘tunnel’ to the left, that clearly shows there were A LOT of police there, blocking the left-hand exit and waving people back.

The crucial piece of information is WHEN, exactly, was this video taken, BH, can anyone help to answer this question?

And I’m still very confused about WHAT is stopping these people from moving forward at the bottom of the stairs to the left (as you descend the stairs), where you see the police gesticulating at them to go back.

How is there a 2-3 metres gap of empty space between the police, and the crowd?

WHAT is preventing the people on the steps who are facing the police from moving forward, exactly?

Something here is still not making sense.

But with Hashem’s help, and a lot of prayers, we’ll continue to figure this out, BH.

Thanks to everyone who helped me get this video on to the site. May Hashem bless you all.

Rav Berland was just rushed back to hospital from the Jerusalem District Court.

I’m cutting and pasting this from the ravberland.com website HERE:

====

Please pray for the Rav, who was just taken back to hospital from the court!

Today, May 6th, 2021, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, was ordered to appear in court for a hearing, despite his incredibly frail physical health.

The Rav was literally taken into the court on a stretcher, as you can see in the footage below:

====

Half an hour later, the Rav was urgently taken out of court – again on a stretcher – straight to hospital.

Please pray for Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia!

Please say a Tikkun Haklali for him – or even 3, or 7 or 10.

Whatever you can manage.

The Rav is the main thing standing between us and the reshaim who want to eat us alive.

And the Rav now needs our prayers urgently.

May we only hear good news, and may Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia have a complete and total refuah shleimah.

====

Man, do we need the Rav’s koach and continued spiritual protection to deal with these evil people, who mamash tried to also kill him a few different times already.

When I saw the picture of how much suffering the Rav has etched into his face, I have to admit to feeling pretty sad about everything – everything! – that’s going on right now.

So, please pray for Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia, that he should have a total healing, and be totally released from imprisonment very, very soon.

For sure, we need him so, so much.

But right now, he also needs us, and our prayers.

A new report into Meron, with new footage, came out yesterday.

I will put the link at the bottom of this article, if you haven’t seen it already.

Because in the meantime, I’ve spent the last 2 hours going through this new clip from Channel 12 – exactly 3.33 seconds long – and I’ve already caught saw many deliberate lies it’s astounding.

This is going to take me another 2 hours to complete, so in the meantime, I wanted to post up where I’ve got to, so far, and then I’ll update once I’m done.

As always, I’m a fallible human being, and this is about the truth, not about my ego.

So please, if you see any mistakes in what I’m writing – that are based in fact, and not just opinion – please do let me know. I welcome all input that is also trying to establish the truth of what happened.

PART 1:

UPDATE: A reader sent me a screenshot that shows the first scene in the Channel 12 report also has a time stamp. I’m slotting it in here.

PART 2:

Here’s the link where you can see the full clip – until they take it down, because this is effectively catching the media in the act of deliberately falsifying ‘evidence’ to cover up the truth of how those 45 people in Meron died.

What we have now learned beyond the shadow of a doubt:

There are two exits at the bottom of the ‘Shvil Reb Dov’ stairs, one to the left and one to the right.

We still don’t know – for sure – what as going on at the left hand exit, but it’s clear beyond any shadow of a doubt now that:

THE RIGHT HAND EXIT WAS BLOCKED BY THE POLICE AT SOME TIME AFTER 12:30 PM, AND STAYED BLOCKED THE WHOLE TIME THAT FATAL ‘CRUSH’ BUILT UP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS.

====

There’s so much more to say, and for sure we aren’t done yet.

The crowd coming down that single exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex only had one way to go – to the left.

The right-hand exit was definitely blocked, probably by a gate – which is why there are so many accounts of the exit being blocked with a gate.

The left-hand exit was left free, but became dangerously congested.

Then, 10+ policemen and policewomen showed up at the left-hand exit to stop people exiting from that side too – and the result was, 45 people died.

Channel 12 themselves state that these 45 people were crushed at the back of the crowd on the right hand side at the back – right next to the exit that was deliberately blocked by the police.

You can also see in the Channel 12 footage, if you look carefully, a number of Border Police and regular police coming in and out of the area, from that otherwise ‘blocked’ right hand exit.

What this means is – the police could have easily opened the right-hand exit, they could have easily rescued the people trapped.

And they didn’t.

This was murder.

And the footage from Channel 12 is finally proving that.

====

UPDATE:

Now we can understand this original footage better:

====

 

That’s why all the people in the video, above, have their backs to it, and are facing in only one direction.

Police did block the exit, beyond the shadow of a doubt.

When are the people responsible for this – going all the way up to the highest levels of government – going to be arrested and held to account, for what they did in Meron, L’ag B’omer 5781?

When I took the car up to Meron on Monday, I didn’t really know why I was going.

I mean, it was already three days after the disaster, what did I think I was going to find, or see, that hadn’t already been cleaned away or covered up?

But still, my heart was giving me no peace, and so I found myself arriving in Meron at approximately Monday lunchtime.

I was surprised to see it was still full of people, so much so that parking was difficult.

Somehow, I still got a spot right next to the complex, and then I set out to try to find out what I was actually doing there.

====

I walked around the bleachers area first, where Toldos Aharon had lit their bonfire, and where 20,000 people had been pinned into an area with just one exit, instead of the four exits the Israel Fire and Rescue Association had recommended in their report.

There were still some of the police barriers at the top of the stairs leading down from Rashbi’s tomb, that they hadn’t managed to pack away yet.

I glared at them, then walked around all the bleachers, trying to see if any of them – or anything else at the back there – looked like it had ‘collapsed’, even a little bit, like all those strange media reports rushed to tell us had happened.

(More on that a little later.)

Nothing.

Everything looked sturdy, normal, solid.

====

Then, I had no idea where the tragedy had actually occurred, and I wasn’t about to start asking people to show me.

That just didn’t seem appropriate.

So, I found a quiet corner inside the women’s section of Rashbi’s tomb, and decided to eat my sandwich, while I pondered what to do next.

God, I don’t know why you sent me here today, or what you want me to really ‘do’. I don’t even know where this place is, and I’m not going to ask. So, if you want me to find, or to do something, please show me. 

Otherwise, I’m just going to say some of the Rav’s ‘Perakim Nivcharim’ for the souls of the departed, and go home…

====

I finished my sandwich, benched, then headed out the front of the complex.

An old lady was sat on a bench, chewing a boureka. She looked me up and down, then told me:

If you came to light a candle, it’s down there.

She pointed me down to the left side of the Rashbi complex, into a dark ‘tunnel’ of corrugated white metal that I only learnt afterwards was put up by the authorities ‘especially for L’ag B’omer’.

I walked down it, and I came to a small group of people, all chareidi, mostly men, who were standing at the bottom of the stairs and lighting candles for the souls of the departed.

I’d brought my camera, but it just didn’t seem ‘appropriate’ to start taking pictures then.

====

There was a stillness, a heaviness, a sense of palpable yeoush, when I first got there.

I overheard one man telling his three young daughters a little of his experience being caught in that killer crush on L’ag B’omer, but when they started to ask questions, he sighed heavily and said let’s not speak of it any more.

A dagger went through my heart when I heard that, because if we DON’T speak about it, then the people who planned all this are going to win! They are going to get away with it again!

But I understood him.

So, feeling some of that yeoush myself, that there was nothing more to do there in Meron, I found somewhere to sit near to the steps, and I pulled out the ‘Perakim Nivcharim’.

====

Three minutes later, a camera crew showed up accompanying a man who’d lost someone in the crush on L’ag B’omer, who had come to place a memorial candle.

The main reporter looked at me, and asked me if I was planning to be there for a while. I nodded. So then he whipped out his expensive camera tripod, and asked me to ‘keep it safe’ for him.

I kind of rolled my eyes at him – but OK. Whatever. 

All of a sudden, I got the idea in my head that something in the spiritual equation was changing, over there by the steps, and that some of the fire and passion and energy to NOT just roll over and let them keep killing religious Jews was sparking back up.

====

All of a sudden, I heard voices raised, as a massive argument erupted between an older ‘dati leumi’ sightseer who was trying to tell three teenage boys who had been caught in the crush that night that ‘there was no barrier across the exit’.

There were other people there who’d also been in that murderous crush, and also seen people die in front of the faces because the exit had been blocked by the police – but that older dati leumi guy was having none of it.

The police would never do something like that!!! 

He kept screaming, totally enraged by the suggestion that the police had blocked the exit, and that’s what had killed the 45 martyrs.

How can you say such things about the police?!? You should be ashamed of yourselves, to be saying such things as this holy spot!!!

====

An older man, a quiet type, who had also been there on the night came up and corroborated what the teens were telling the dati leumi guy:

There was a barrier here, my friend.

At that point, the dati leumi guy totally lost his cool, and stalked away muttering loud curses against all these people who were ‘speaking lashon hara and spreading sinat chinam’ against the police.

Why are you running away?! 

One of the teens called out after him.

Come back and listen to what he is telling you!!

But that was the very last thing the dati leumi guy wanted to do, because then his worldview of ‘the Israeli police’ – and probably a bunch of other things ‘State of Israel’ related – was going to come crashing down.

After 60+ years of brainwashing that the State of Israel, and its institutions, is only good, and only helpful, and only cares about the Jews…. Well.

You can see why he had to walk away, to preserve his sanity.

====

At that point, I’d finished my tehillim.

And the camera guy had retrieved his tripod.

So, I came over to the teens, and to a couple of the older men standing there, and eavesdropped on their conversation, while I started to snap a few photos.

That’s where I heard first-hand accounts of people fainting – and then dying – while the police looked on.

Of kids throwing up and passing out, as their fathers begged for assistance, while the police looked on.

Of how more and more people had been sent down that already packed and dangerously overcrowded metal ramp, that no-one knew had been blocked by the police at the bottom.

And then standing there, hearing those first-hand accounts and seeing the place where it had all happened with my own eyes, it was obvious that they were telling the truth.

====

The clarity of what had happened by the stairs that night suddenly blared out like a foghorn.

While I took a few more pictures, to share with my readers here on the blog, another camera crew from Channel 13 showed up, together with an assorted group of police officers, all in smartly pressed shirts and stiff uniforms.

This (very small….) group of police officers were being hailed as ‘heroes of Meron’ by the Channel 13 interviewer, who tried to position them by the steps where 45 people had been crushed and asphyxiated to death, thanks to the police.

Except, the interview kept getting interrupted by a very determined young yeshiva bochur, who kept repeating, loudly, the same mantra, over and over again.

Kol haKovod to the police who helped, and we love you as our brothers – but who put the barrier across the exit?

====

The group didn’t like that question.

And they were also being heckled by the three teens who started calling them ‘murderers’ and ‘nazis’ – not exactly the ‘feel’ they were after for their ‘heroes of Meron’ interview – so they decided to try again, by heading further down to the bottom bleachers.

The determined young yeshiva bochur followed them down there, and that’s when I started to take pictures of this obviously staged and heavily-managed Channel 13 interview with the ‘heroes of Meron’ – all three of them.

(It’s a side point, but my daughter told me she didn’t see any police on the night helping to carry stretchers.

It was the first responders, helped by a lot of the bystanders. So it’s amazing Channel 3 managed to dig up a whole three ‘heroes of Meron’ in police uniform. But I digress.)

====

Thanks to the heckling from the teens and the determined young yeshiva bochur, the Channel 13 TV crew had to keep changing locations, trying to find somewhere where they could shake them off.

They set up again, directly in front of the Rashbi complex – and at this point, the three heckling teenagers left the party.

Now, the Channel 13 TV crew were surrounded by lots of the sightseers who’d come down to light candles and see what had happened.

They were on more friendly territory again, surrounded by more of the dati leumi crowd who were raised to believe the State of Israel and its institutions are a holy, good ‘peel’ around the fruit.

This time, when the interviewer started again, with the ‘heroes of Meron’, there were at least three dati leumi people there trying to get the determined young yeshiva bochur to shut up:

Kol haKovod to the police who helped, and we love you as our brothers – but who put the barrier across the exit?

====

Why are you saying that?! What’s your problem?! 

Some older dati leumi guy started screaming at him, before telling him he should take off his tefillin, because he wasn’t acting the way a religious Jew should.

Some other guy told him to stop bothering the TV crew, and the ‘heroes of Meron’, and to go back to learning Torah, instead.

Then, an Arab cleaner came up and told him:

Leave them alone, God will deal with them.

(Which was actually the most cogent argument out of all of the people trying to shut the yeshiva bochur up.)

====

But now, the yeshiva bochur had really gotten under the skin of the Channel 13 TV crew.

I mean, the nerve of the guy.

There they were, trying to do an interview with the three police (out of who knows how many hundreds….) who’d actually made an effort to try to save some Jewish lives during the disaster on L’ag B’omer, and here was this guy, ruining it all, by asking a question about who had actually put the barrier across the exit that had directly lead to the deaths of 45 people.

I mean, c’mon!

What you are doing is a chillul Hashem!!! The Channel 13 interviewer screamed at the yeshiva bochur, while one of the cameraman actually tried to punch him.

In the meantime, the ‘heroes of Meron’ were starting to look increasingly uncomfortable, while the police handlers who were flanking them were just looking plain angry.

====

The yeshiva bochur, to his credit, stood his ground, and just kept repeating over and over again:

Kol haKovod to the police who helped, and we love you as our brothers – but who put the barrier across the exit?

At that point, one of the older dati leumi guys who’d been trying to shut him up leaned over and said to one of the police handlers, a woman, the following:

Honestly, it’s a good question. Who did put the barrier across the exit? And why did they block the exit in the first place?

At that point, some of the angry arrogance in her face evaporated, and she started to look very uncomfortable.

There’s an answer to that question, she snapped back.

I’d also like to hear it,  I chimed in.

Who did put the barrier across the exit, and why did they do it?

The policewoman turned her back on us, throwing over her shoulder:

There is no-one here to talk to.

====

And that, dear reader, is when I knew that this time around, the police, the government, are not going to be able to cover this up.

As the interview continued, another man walked past and called out angrily:

We know you are paying off the families of the victims, so they won’t lodge complaints against you.

And so, another piece of the puzzle slotted into place, as to why the ‘heroes of Meron’ were being welcomed into shiva homes where everyone was clearly very uncomfortable, and unhappy, that they were there, despite all the carefully choreographed shots of ‘grateful hugging’.

====

While all this was going on, one of the quiet, elder men who had been caught in the deadly crush asked the Channel 13 crowd if they’d liked to interview him, about his experiences on the night.

Of course, they didn’t.

I mean, who wants to hear first-hand testimony from someone who saw with his own eyes how the police in Meron deliberately blocked the one exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex, in the middle of a segment about the ‘heroes of Meron’?!

What was the man thinking?

How could he think that these journalists from Channel 13 were interested in getting to the truth?

Tut tut.

====

Today, as I write this, I know that there is still an uphill battle ahead of us, to get the real story out there.

But I can feel in my bones that this time, IT WILL GET OUT THERE.

My email is full of people bringing their own piece of the puzzle to this attempt to find clarity and justice.

Too many people are asking questions, too many people can’t sleep at night, too many stories are leaking out about what the police did, and didn’t do that night in Meron.

The desperate ‘spin’ will continue for a little while longer, but I can tell you one thing about our craven media:

As soon as they realise that the general public is not buying their lies anymore, they will instantly ‘switch sides’, in an attempt to save their own credibility (and jobs….).

We aren’t there yet, but I’m starting to see the beginning of that process, in some of the pieces I’m reading, and some of the stories that are starting to make it into the mainstream.

====

If ‘the media’ becomes irrelevant – if more of us wake up and realise that they are just government-sponsored propagandists, paid to manipulate the gullible public – then they will be out of a job.

And things are stretched so far in that direction now with the ‘story’ they’ve been telling about Meron, they will have to ping back hard and fast, if they want to keep being able to fool us, that they at least sometimes tell the truth.

There is blood in the water now.

The police and the politicians and everyone else who planned murder in Meron this year will be exposed, and justice will be done for the 45 victims.

It’s just a matter of time.

====

Kol haKovod to the police who helped, and we love you as our brothers – but who put the barrier across the exit?

And why?

====

UPDATE:

Israel National News put up this article this morning (for 5 minutes…):

====

Snippet:

In documentation obtained by Channel 13 News, ambulances can be seen evacuating the injured, but not allowed to return and treat other injured people who are still at the compound. “We were not allowed to enter the site, the police blocked us,” the paramedics claimed.

====

And more first-hand testimony is coming out, that the single exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex was blocked by 10 burly policemen, who were pushing people back up the stairs and the ramp, just before the ‘disaster’ (in Hebrew):

https://go.bhol.co.il/31eLuS

Google translated snippet:

“[Q]uite a few dozen seconds after we passed the entrance to the path, a lot of policemen and at least one policewoman came to the entrance to the path and blocked the exit.

Anyone who knows this area at the time of L’ag B’Omer, this year and every year knows that police officers do not walk around in the mehadrin area at all [i.e. the area cordoned off for just men]… And certainly there are no policewomen in the whole area.

Suddenly at least 10 policemen appeared in one shot?!?! They were at the ‘disaster’ long before the first responders and Magen Dovid Adam !! And after the disaster – most of them (not all!) did not reach out at all… they were not determined and urgent to help, to say the least.”
