There is a strange ‘quiet’ here in Jerusalem at the moment.

People are still going about their (pretend) normal lives, still shopping, still working, still doing most of the things (pretend) normal people do.

But underneath, you can feel that we are all holding our breath at the moment.

“Something” is about to break, something is about to change, but none of us know what, or if it’s going to be obviously good, or less obviously good.

====

Me personally, I seem to be spending most of my time at home at the moment.

After two weeks of bidud following my weekend away in Uman, I actually realised I prefer being home than out right now.

It was great, not to have to deal with the ongoing mask fascism, the ongoing hassle of stepping around all these ‘issue’ and ‘conversations’ with people who think that I’m a conspiracy theorist, because I happen to investigate and evaluate way more than they do, and try to keep an open mind and really notice what’s happening.

Right now, I don’t feel like eating so much. Don’t feel like interacting with people so much. Don’t feel like ‘going out’ very much, at all, even to places like the Kotel.

I’m not depressed or even miserable.

I was pretty scared, honestly, of what is happening, until I made a big effort last week to turn my ‘fallen fears’ into more yirat shemayim, and to just leave it up to God, if I live or die, and however He wants my life to unfold.

Most days, I’m still dancing and clapping away the ‘bad’, and feeling much happier and calmer as a result.

But underneath…

I feel that ‘something’ that we can all feel, if we put down the weed, the phone, the Facebook, the deadline, for just one moment, and quiet our minds.

====

I’ve had quite a few people asking me why I deleted my blog, if I’m just going to carry on writing the same sort of stuff anyway.

There’s a few answers to that.

One answer is that I deleted the blog with the intention of going in a different direction, more just spiritual housewife stuff, I guess more like this post, which takes me 10 minutes to write as opposed to the hours and hours and hours the other posts take me, piecing all that info together.

But then when I sat back down at my keyboard…. God had other plans.

And kind of ‘against my will’, I find myself writing what I’m writing, even though I know I’m just going to invoke a lot of criticism and bizayon.

So that’s one answer.

====

Another answer, is that I deleted my back posts to lower my profile, and to protect myself going forward.

Because you see, if I was the ‘crazed conspiracy theorist’ some people like to think I am, just making stuff up all over the place with no basis in fact or investigation, no-one would be trying to hack my blog and to take it down.

They wouldn’t white out posts, they wouldn’t block people from commenting, they wouldn’t stick my blog on some ‘shadow banning’ list which means often, people can’t even access it.

I know how much sourced information goes into the posts I write.

I know that I don’t pull things ‘out of thin air’, but back them up with solid facts that can’t be disputed.

That doesn’t mean my conclusions are always correct, btw, as with so much being continually covered up and hidden, there is an element of permanent speculation involved, until more of those lacunae in real information are filled in.

But the point is this: I deleted the back posts, because they contain a lot of true information that I felt could potentially put me in danger.

The lower my profile is, online, the easier it is for me to carry on researching things in detail, and writing about them, without drawing attention.

=====

I really am trying to write this blog for God.

If I get the message to stop tomorrow, I’ll stop.

Every time I write some of these ‘controversial’ posts, I have another wobble about whether I’m doing the right thing again, and I have to go and check in with myself, with my soul, to see what it’s telling me.

I’ve had emails from people this week telling me I must have lost my mind, to be questioning the ‘tzaddik’ status of certain individuals, and threatening me with all sorts of spiritual calamity if I continue.

Since when are Jews not allowed to put facts together, and ask for an explanation of behavior that is puzzling to them?

People had no qualms doing that the last few years with some of the strange behaviour they saw Rav Berland engaging in, and in a much less respectful and polite way than I’m going about this parallel process of birur.

If someone has a good explanation, for why the Rebbe Rayatz didn’t write any letters to the US State Department asking them to intervene for the Jews of Europe during World War II, but DID write letters asking for his books and silverware to be rescued, I’m very happy to hear it.

====

And I’m also happy to hear an explanation of why so many government ministers, including rabidly anti-Torah personalities, are still sucking up to the Mesichist side of Chabad 30 years after the Rebbe died:

====

And I’m also happy to hear what’s really going on with this (below, and how the former Rebbe was so connected to the spiritually corrupt Presidents of the US like George (National Socialist) Bush and Ronald Reagan, these presidents were sending him letters wishing him happy birthday and congratulating him on his wedding anniversaries.

Asking these questions doesn’t make me an apikorus.

====

This is a world of lies, don’t you know?

It’s about to collapse.

And each person has to check very carefully who and what they are holding onto, for support, to see whether that thing, that person, is rooted in deceit, or rooted in honesty.

If it’s rooted in honesty, it will carry you through this next stage of the geula process.

And if it’s rooted in deceit…it will drag you down with it.

God forbid.

“Eliya” Hawila has a very interesting family tree.

If you don’t know who that is – and you want to know – go read THIS. And also, go read the comments, where you’ll see the YWN caught red-handed by readers re-writing the story, to deflect blame off some of the people involved in it.

In a nutshell, there’s a Lebanese Shi’ite guy called ‘Eliya Hawila’ who somehow managed to marry a Sephardi woman in NYC, because he ‘fooled everyone’ that he was a Jew.

But here’s the thing: When you take a look at his family tree, that was posted up on MyHeritage but which has now been ‘disappeared’, here is what you see:

====

If you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll find that one ‘Meir Lansky’ married one ‘Sarah Yakubowsky’ in Poland.

They had a child called ‘Ilana Lansky’ (born in Poland) who married one ‘Habib Levi’, born in Lebanon.

They had a child called Miriam Levi who married one Haim Hawila in Lebanon – who apparently descends from a ‘Yaacob Mizrachi’.

And their son ‘Eliyah Hawila’ is the guy in the story.

==

I don’t know if the family tree is genuine.

But that name ‘Meir Lansky’ caught my eye, so I started digging around a bit more to see what I can turn up about the Jewish community, generally, in Lebanon, and about Meir Lansky in particular.

====

Over on Wikipedia, there is a whole big piece about the history of the Jewish community in Lebanon.

Here’s the snippet that caught my eye:

“The development of the Jewish yishuv in Palestine influenced the Jewish leadership, who usually showed sympathy and active support for Zionism.

The Jewish leadership in Beirut during this time aligned itself ideologically with the American-Based B’nai B’rith organization through its local proxy (Arzei Ha-Levanon Lodge) which was staffed by local community leaders.

The B’nai B’rith lodge in Beirut attracted the social and economic elite… In Beirut, unlike other Jewish communities, most of the community council members were also B’nai B’rith members, hence there existed an overlap between the council and the lodge.”

====

B’nai B’rith lodges grew out of the Frankist-Freemason ‘secret societies’ that we’ve been covering here.

So, I found it pretty interesting that the Jewish movers and shakers in Beirut 1) Actively supported ‘Zionism’, when that wasn’t a fashionable thing for Jewish communities to do, in the Arab world, and b) had a community organisation where the American (Frankist-Freemason) B’nai B’rith was effectively running the whole show.

We’ll get to B’nai B’rith in more detail soon. It’s a big part of this story that hasn’t been covered yet.

But Freemasonry is still a ‘thing’ in Lebanon, even today:

====

For now, take a look at THIS story on the Mega Group, that also came around the Jeffrey Epstein affair.

(BTW, I  have strong suspicions that the author, Whitney Webb, is also a spook. There’s just no way you’d get this amount of quality information ‘out there’, without a big helping hand from intelligence. So as always, do the birur and evaluate everything very carefully.)

Here’s the snippet for now:

[I]n 1983, Ronald Lauder — whose only professional experience at that point was working for his parent’s cosmetics company — was appointed to serve as United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for European and NATO Affairs.

Soon after his appointment, he served on the Dinner Tribute Committee for a dinner hosted by the Jewish fraternal and strongly pro-Israel organization B’nai B’rith, the parent organization of the controversial Anti-Defamation League (ADL), in Roy Cohn’s honor. Cohn’s influential father, Albert Cohn, was the long-time president of B’nai B’rith’s powerful New England-New York chapter and Roy Cohn himself was a member of B’nai B’rith’s Banking and Finance Lodge.

The dinner specifically sought to honor Cohn for his pro-Israel advocacy and his efforts to “fortify” Israel’s economy, and its honorary chairmen included media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Donald Trump and then-head of Bear Stearns Alan Greenberg, all of whom are connected to Jeffrey Epstein. 

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find an archived copy of a document called: Organized Crime and the ADL.

You’ll learn a great deal about the Jewish mafia’s links to the State of Israel – mostly all conducted in the name of charidee – and we’ll come back to that another time.

The basic job of the ADL was to cry ‘anti-semitism’ anytime somebody tried to suggest that someone Jewish may have been engaged in illegal or unethical activities.

If this sounds far-fetched, all you have to do is see that this same modus operandi is still occurring today.

And it’s very effective at silencing genuine voices, who are not anti-semites, and who are even sometimes Jews themselves, from speaking up about things that are going on, that are disturbing, within the Jewish community.

What happens when you silence the moderate voices asking legitimate questions, and cover up things that should be exposed and dealt with, is that then the ‘extreme voices’ are the only ones out there, and most of those ‘extreme voices’ do belong to anti-semites.

====

The ADL has been funded by some very ‘interesting’ people down the years.

Some of them – like Meyer Lansky and Moe Dalitz – were known mobsters. If it doesn’t bother you that the ADL gave their “Torch of Liberty” award in 1982 to Dalitz, who was connected to the Purple Gang that murdered at least 500 of their rivals…. well. I don’t know what to tell you. It really bothers me.

Other ADL sponsors include a bunch of ‘Milken’s Monsters’, like Victor Posner, Meshulam Riklis, and naturally, Michael Milken himself.

====

Let’s get back to Meyer Lansky.

So, we now know that the (Frankist-Freemason) B’nai B’rith organisation was very active in the Jewish community of Beirut, Lebanon, where “Eliya Hawila” comes from. We know the B’nai B’rith set up the ADL. We know that the ADL has close ties to Lansky – and other family members.

This is a cached copy of what appears on the Statemaster spook encyclopaedia site, HERE:

Mira Lansky Boland [Meyer Lansky’s grand-daughter] is an intelligence analyst and a political activist.

She studied with Prof. Uri Ra’anan at the elite International Security Studies Program at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where one of her classmates was Jonathan Pollard. From there, she went on to the CIA and then the Office of Net Assessment (ONA) at the Pentagon, where she worked under Andrew Marshall. Upon leaving the ONA in 1984, Lansky Boland became the fact-finding director of the Anti-Defamation League‘s Washington, D.C. office.

====

Uhoh.

We just tripped down another massive rabbit hole with this one.

Let’s shelve that said of things, for now, and return to Lebanon.

Because here’s the niggling question I have: is it possible that “Eliya Hawila” actually really IS a Jew after all?

Is it at least possible, that he could have had a great-grandparent called ‘Meir Lansky’? Is there a ‘Lansky-Lebanon’ connection, in the real world?

====

Here’s Meyer Lansky being interviewed for Israeli TV, back in 1971, and clearly lying through his teeth:

Around the 1:27 minute mark, he says:

“They claim I have 50% of Lebanon’s casinos.”

If you apply the ‘opposite’ rule to everything Lansky says in this interview, you’ll come out much closer to the real truth.

According to reported comments from his daughter, Sandy, this is the backstory for why Meyer Lansky fled to Israel, and tried to get citizenship here, prompting the [totally scripted…] interview above:

President Nixon, already angry with Lansky for his support of Kennedy in the election, began to take revenge on the crime boss after Lansky rejected Nixon’s attempt to enter into a casino share in the Bahamas, since at that time only mobsters could be partners with each other.

After one of the FBI agents hinted that a case was being prepared against him, Lansky flew to Israel to escape tax charges in the United States. Then Nixon began threatening Israel that he would cancel the deal on the Phantoms that Israel needed to protect itself from its neighbors in the Middle East, so Prime Minister Golda Meyer finally decided to deport Lansky.

But Lansky himself left Israel to avoid being deported and later went on trial in the United States, but was acquitted of the tax charge.

====

In the meantime, Watergate happened, and Nixon got taken out of the picture, making it much easier for Lansky to get ‘acquitted’.

Here’s one more snippet from Meyer Lansky’s Wikipedia page, and then we’ll leave it here for now:

Lansky is credited with having “controlled” compromising pictures of a s*xual nature featuring former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover with his longtime aide, Clyde Tolson. In his book, Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover, biographer Anthony Summers cites multiple primary sources regarding Lansky’s use of blackmail to gain influence with politicians, policemen and judges.

One such stage for the acquisition of blackmail materials were orgies held by late attorney and Lansky protégé Roy Cohn and liquor magnate Lewis Rosenstiel, who had lasting ties with the Mafia from his bootleg operations during Prohibition.

The release of FBI files on Lansky revealed extensive monitoring and investigation, which makes it harder to explain why Lansky was not pursued to conviction, unless he successfully evaded it by blackmail. Cohn copied this model of blackmail to control politicians and evade conviction himself.

====

And so, we come full circle.

Roy Cohn was Meyer Lansky’s protege. Roy Cohn, in turn, had had a young protege you may have heard of. His name is Donald Trump.

====

Let’s recall the quote from above, about the ADL links to Roy Cohn, amongst others:

Cohn’s influential father, Albert Cohn, was the long-time president of B’nai B’rith’s powerful New England-New York chapter and Roy Cohn himself was a member of B’nai B’rith’s Banking and Finance Lodge.

The dinner specifically sought to honor Cohn for his pro-Israel advocacy and his efforts to “fortify” Israel’s economy, and its honorary chairmen included media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Donald Trump and then-head of Bear Stearns Alan Greenberg, all of whom are connected to Jeffrey Epstein.

====

We are back to the women and child trafficking.

And don’t forget, Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of ‘super-spy’ Robert Maxwell is still meant to be behind bars, somewhere, in connection to all this, too.

Sadly, the (Frankist-Freemason) State of Israel has more than one connection to this sordid story.

And hard as I try to escape it, somehow or other, all roads keep leading me back to the same people, the same organisations – and the same underlying thought that something is profoundly ‘wrong’ here, and needs to be dealt with, finally, and fixed.

====

UPDATE:

A lot of Lansky’s mafia money was apparently ‘laundered’ via a Swiss rabbi called Tibor Rosenbaum.

HERE is his Wikipedia page, snippet below:

During The Holocaust, Rosenbaum saved hundreds of Jews while being disguised as a German SS officer, a soldier in the Hungarian Arrow Cross, or as a member of the Hungarian Levente, depending on the situation…

Soon after the establishment of Israel, Mr. Rosenbaum started an organisation called “Helvis Company” to actively promote Israeli‐Swiss trade. A decade later Helvis was alleged to having given kickbacks into a special fund of the National Religious party to obtain contracts from the Ministry of Health in connection with two hospitals near Tel Aviv.

Together with his friend Bernard Cornfeld, Rosenbaum founded the Banque De Credit International Genève in Geneva in the 1959, which went bankrupt in 1976…Rosenbaum originally financed arms purchases for Israel through the bank. For the major organized crime figure Meyer Lansky, who first met Rosenbaum in 1965, the bank also opened a connection to Israel….

According to Richard Gilbride‘s book “Matrix for Assassination: The JFK Conspiracy”, the bank was responsible for handling up to 90% of the Israeli Defense Ministry’s arms purchases.

====

And HERE is a description of the second part of that story (Google translated from Russian):

In 1961, Lansky created a company there [in the Bahamas] that secured a monopoly in the construction and operation of gambling dens. They delivered casino customers by plane, while millions of dollars in profits were immediately flown to Switzerland, Geneva, and more specifically to the bank’s headquarters, no other than an “International Loan” run by a special Jew, Tibor Rosenbaum.”

Jacques Derogy wrote about him: “With a round face and a kippah covering his baldness, Tibor Rosenbaum performed the feat of faithfully playing the role of an Orthodox rabbi and treasurer of the American mafia. It was he who received “suitcases full of dollars for safekeeping and placed them in special cells codenamed Lansky, “Bear”, and, through trust companies, reinvested in the United States and elsewhere in completely legal businesses, including real estate.”

FYI, Jacques Derogy was a French investigative journalist, who definitely had at least a Jewish father.

====

JUST SO WE ARE CLEAR, this is where those ‘laundered funds’ were coming from, snippet from the Encyclopedia Britannica entry on Meyer Lansky:

[Lansky] was involved in narcotics smuggling, pornographyprostitution, labour racketeering, and extortion and had control of such legitimate enterprises as hotels, golf courses, and a meatpacking plant. Monies were secreted in Swiss banks. By 1970 his total holdings were estimated at $300 million.

There is a lot to unpick here…as always.

It’s interesting, that ‘Murder Inc’ seems to have cottoned on to the idea of using externally orthodox-Jewish individuals and organisations to launder their cash a long time ago.

For some strange reason, all those charidee foundations of secular Jews inexplicably investing in orthodox institutions in the US and Israel and elsewhere are popping up in my mind now.

I’m sure that’s just a CO-IN-CI-DE-NCE.

TBC

====

 

Here are three things that I found really interesting.

***Update of the Rav fainting in court, below***

Interesting thing 1: How human health really works.

We aren’t ‘bodies’, we are souls with a ‘garment of skin’.

I plan to come back to this topic a lot in the near future, BH, but for now, please watch THIS, which does an excellent job of explaining how energy, intention and sound – betzem, prayer, emuna and ratzon – are really the basis of real human health, even in the ‘real world’.

(This has two women in it, so not shmirat eynayim friendly. So if that’s a concern, please just listen to the audio, as understanding these concepts are a total game-changer, for understanding health – and how body and soul are totally intertwined.)

====

Interesting thing 2: Some real Torah on the Parsha, with Rav Ofer Erez.

Rav Ofer Erez is a Breslov Rav, one of Rav Berland’s closest students, and the person whose Torah wisdom really saved me, spiritually, when I got buried under an avalanche of fake-emuna-induced misery and suffering.

They are launching a new ‘Breslov by the Kotel’ online yeshiva for English speakers, so BH, we hope to see way more quality Breslov Torah, in English, coming out now.

HERE‘s the link where you can download the PDF of the parsha sheet, and the snippet:

With the help of Hashem, we present to you the first Parsha sheet based on our online weekly classes. This is based on the shiur of Rav Ofer Erez given this week via our online Breslov University.

We hope to upgrade the design of the Parsha sheet in the coming weeks and to add more of the teachings shared throughout the week.

====

Go HERE to read, download, print it off for Shabbat, and share.

====

Interesting thing number 3: Is THIS post from November 2020, that just ‘popped up’ on the Arutz 7 site.

It’s entitled:

Snippet:

Video clips taken from the event make no attempt to conceal the nature of their beliefs, with their slogans, “The Rebbe is the Melech Hamoshiach,” (the King Messiah) and “Long live our master, the Melech Hamoshiach,” in prominent display.

The messages from Knesset members were broadcast to this event, including those from MK Naftali Bennett, Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Education Minister Yoav Galant, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Opposition head MK Yair Lapid, MK Amir Peretz, and deputy Education Minister Meir Porush.

====

You can watch these greetings for yourself, HERE:

(Warning: viewing this video may result in mild-to-severe nausea. Please consult your medical professional if symptoms continue more than 24 hours.)

====

For non-Hebrew speakers, I decided to translate the comments of our dear PM, Naftali Bennett, below:

Shalom to every dear Chabad shaliach.

First of all, I love you.

I love each and every one of you, so very much.

And I love the Chabad movement, from the depth of my heart.

I know, and I’m familiar with, the wonderful self-sacrifice, of each and every one of you.

Another last thing. Whatever is going to happen, from any palce, whatever is going to happen, I guarantee that I am not going to give away even a centimetre of Eretz Yisrael. Because Eretz Yisrael, is ours.

==

(Here’s a screenshot of Bennett’s face, as he says these last words, nausea alert:)

====

If that isn’t strange enough, the video then cuts away to that notorious hater of religious Jews and Torah Judaism, Yair Lapid.

Here’s what he says:

I want to bless all the Chabad shlichim in the whole world. You aren’t just shlichim for Chabad, you are also my shlichim, and the shlichim of the Jewish people, in entirety.

[Chabad] is bigger than every specific group in the Jewish people….

It gives me pleasure (lit: happiness) to give you happiness.

====

If THAT isn’t strange enough, the video now switches to Amir Peretz (who also looks like he’s in early stages of Parkinsons), also encouraging Chabad to continue ‘on their true path’.

And then telling them this (2:30 mark):

The Rebbe continues [present tense] to be with you.

The next sentence isn’t clear, but I think Amir Peretz says something like: “You are busy with his mitzvahs”, and concludes with: “The salvation of Hashem comes in the blink of an eye.”

====

But the perplexing and surprising statements don’t stop there.

Yoav Galant, who was almost IDF Chief of General Staff before scandals torpedoed that, had this to say:

“I want you to know that you are doing holy work. And that you are the real shlichim. You – and to my great pleasure, also me – are busy with the education of Am Yisrael, about the important things….I tell you that you are doing holy work, and continue to strengthen Am Yisrael.”

====

Then there is Benny Gantz, former Defence Minister, who says this:

As the Defense Minister, I am certain that the strength of our army by itself is not enough to protect our State. Only the combination between the army’s [strength?] and spiritual [strength?] is what can help us to succeed…. Yeshar Koach, and may you be blessed.

====

Most of these guys hate frum Jews and the Torah lifestyle.

Lapid and Bennett sat with Netanyahu, all those years ago, to launch the ‘war’ against the Torah world in Israel, which decimated yeshivas, slashed child benefits, tried to force yeshiva bochurs into the army – and of course, began the terrible State persecution of Rav Berland.

Amir Peretz is a Labour Socialist (say no more); Galant and Gantz are ex-army top brass who live on communist moshavim, and Deri and Porush sat in the government that seems to have killed 45 pilgrims to Meron with secret Directed Energy weapons.

====

Hey, lookie here, what else I just learned about Benny Gantz from Wikipedia:

In July 2011, Gantz appointed a special committee to address a controversy that had developed concerning mention of the word Elokim, “God”, in the military Yizkor prayer. The committee determined that a disputed passage should read Yizkor ‘Am Yisrael, “May the Nation of Israel remember”, and not Yizkor Elokim, “May God remember”. Gantz upheld the committee’s ruling…

Gantz was the chairman of the Fifth Dimension, a computer security and law enforcement technology company, which specialized in tracking via smartphone spyware. The company closed due to financial reasons, after its Russian investor Viktor Vekselberg was sanctioned under CAATSA by the United States during the Special Counsel investigation into Russian attempts to interfere with the US election, led by Robert Mueller.

====

If I was still in ‘investigative journalist’ mode, that would be dinging off the bell pretty loudly, considering what is now going on with ‘contact tracing’ and Covid 19.

But the point is this:

How do we explain all these MKS falling over themselves to suck up to the ‘Messianic’ side of Chabad, in 2020, almost three decades after the Rebbe died?

And it’s not just the fact they recorded messages, as politicians do that all the time. But more what these messages were actually saying.

Really, Naftali Bennett ‘loves’ them? Really, it’s making Yair Lapid so happy to have a chance to do something for ‘his’ shlichim? Really, Benny Gantz is giving the credit for defending the State of Israel to the spiritual activities of Chabad, and Amir Peretz believes the Rebbe is still alive and guiding the movement?

Really?

====

Let’s end with this quote from THIS post, that led to so much kick-back on the site, when I posted it up:

====

Nuff said.

====

POSTSCRIPT:

I just want to underscore, again, that good and bad is mixed up all over the place in this story.

There are some tremendously good people within Chabad, more at the grassroots level, who really deserve all the accolades the movement regularly gets.

The two local shlichim near me both seem to be putting a lot into serving their communities – although I’ll admit to being puzzled how Chabad can afford the rent on their multiple locations in expensive Jerusalem, particularly when most of them barely scrape a minyan.

====

Point is, that I do need to make some teshuva on carelessly lumping good and bad together, without stating this point clearly.

For example, I am in touch with some descendants of the Alter Rebbe via email, who have way better middot than mine.

In that sense, it’s correct to say the yichus doesn’t matter – people can stand for the highest good, or the highest bad, whichever gene pool they happen to have.

And free choice is paramount.

Dafka, the people who come out from the darkest places, and choose ‘against’ that, contain the greatest spiritual light.

====

But at the same time…. There’s a lot of mysteries that need to be cleared up involving Chabad’s tight connection to the secular State of Israel.

And as the State of Israel is a Freemason-Frankist creation, that is obviously going to have a lot of implications, in a lot of ways, for a lot of people.

And we still didn’t pin down where the Vilna Gaon, and his 70 Perushim, and that whole Litvak-Volozhin yeshiva thing fits into this picture yet, either.

But I have a feeling we will.

And probably sooner rather than later.

====

UPDATE:

I just got sent video of the 84 year old holy Rav, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, fainting in court, when he was dragged into the Russian Compound – Shneur Zalman Cheshin St – for questioning earlier in the week.

Watch it, and understand the real mesirut nefesh that our True Tzaddikim are undertaking, in order to sweeten all the terrible gezeirot still coming down on Am Yisrael.

====

And then compare and contrast.

Deri and Porush sat in the government that chased, harassed and persecuted the Rav, and his Shuvu Banim community, for approaching a decade, already – and did nothing to stop it. And let’s not even talk about what happened at Meron, on their watch.

Lapid and Bennett actively ‘went to war’ against the world of Torah in Israel, with the Rav, and Shuvu Banim, and Breslov, as their main target.

Remember, we are in the olam hafuch.

See who these slimy people are praising and sucking up to.

And see who they are persecuting and trying to kill, mamash.

And then draw your own conclusions.

====

Last word for now, from the same person who sent me this video:

Rav Kook saw the video of the Rav fainting in court. He started shaking and said everyone should have extra kavana when they say “break the enemies and subdue the evil doers.”

====

BTW – I’m not taking any more ‘anonymous’ comments on posts about the Rav. If you want to share your opinion, do it with your real name, or don’t bother.

====

Did you know that praying with intention is our secret weapon?

Rabbenu’s whole thing was prayer – hitbodedut, praying your heart out to God in your own words, reciting the Tikkun Haklali, to rectify spiritual problems at their root.

That’s part of why they went after him so much, because prayer is a Jew’s secret weapon – it’s the bow of Yaakov, that deflects the sword of Esav.

====

Two days ago, I was talking to a neighbor in my street, about all this AI facial recognition tech going up all over the city.

Once he grasped what I was telling him – that these weren’t normal CCTV cameras, and that Jerusalem was becoming an open-air prison – he immediately flipped into apathetic despair.

There is nothing you can do anyway! He told me. It’s all over the world this way, so just live your life and ignore it!

====

Yesterday, my dad basically said the same thing.

What’s the point in worrying, you can’t do anything about this, it’s in every country all over the world. Just ignore it and be happy.

I disagree.

Vehemently.

====

According to a couple of commentators here who tried to lodge a protest against the government’s new dictatorial laws, they were prevented from getting into the Justice Department’s website to do that by a ‘password’ that they just couldn’t manage to get, no matter how hard they tried.

Of course, this was no accident.

It’s part of the dictatorship’s efforts to shut down opposition and maintain control.

If ‘this world’ is where we thought the battle is really taking place, then both my neighbor and my dad would be 100% correct, that there is nothing really to do, and we may as well just give up, and try this instead:

====

But the real battle here is being fought in the spiritual arena.

And every single one of us has a part to play.

====

This morning, I got inspired by THIS short video of an Australian policeman in Victoria, who quit his senior position to protest how the corrupt politicians are using the police to turn Australia into a ‘Covid dictatorship’ – and who asked his colleagues to follow him. (Not shmirat eynayim friendly.)

====

The main ‘present’ I got from my latest trip to Uman, is that dancing and clapping can sweeten all the judgements that can’t be sweetened any other way.

So, I’ve incorporated half an hour of dancing and clapping into my daily hitbodedut now, and it’s just making me feel really so much better about what’s going on.

But not because I’m ignoring the situation.

Instead, I first ‘bind myself to the true tzaddikim’, like Rebbe Nachman ben Feige and Simcha, and to Rabbi Eliezer ben Ettia, and then I am picking one subject a day to ‘stomp’ all the bad out of.

Last week, it was AI cameras and 5…G.

Today, I spent half an hour stomping the ‘bad’ out of our police force in Israel, so the pintele yid can ignite, and they will BH all make teshuva and stop enforcing the Covid tyranny.

Here’s the point:

I’m not doing anything. I am mamash nothing and nobody.

But, as soon as I get my ego out of the way, and really try to internalise my ‘nothingness’, then God can really take over.

And when we connect to God, anything is possible, because God is really all there is.

There is no nature.

There is no ‘police’.

There is no ‘Covid 19’.

There is only God.

====

This is how our ‘nothing’ can still do something – everything! – in the world.

Prayer is powerful, and prayer combined with dancing and clapping to sweeten the judgements, as prescribed by Rabbenu, is really the only thing that is going to work here.

I have a lot more to say about this, BH I will return to this topic.

But, I want to encourage you to not sink into apathy and despair because ‘we can’t do anything, anyway.’

In this material world, that may be true.

But in the spiritual world, we can mamash get this to turn around in the blink of an eye, if more of start to bind ourselves to the True Tzaddikim like Rabbenu and the Rav, and start to simply follow Rebbe Nachman’s advice.

====

So, pick how you want to ‘protest’, spiritually, and get on with it.

Here are some practical suggestions:

  1. Commit to spending 5 minutes a day (or more!) dancing and clapping, with the intention of ‘sweetening’ one particular area of evil that’s bothering you. That could be global stuff like poisonous Covid shots, corrupt judiciary, Freemason-Frankists – or stuff much closer to home, like a relationship or situation that is causing you a lot of pain. Literally just ‘stomp’ that problem into the ground…
  2. Start doing hitbodedut for a fixed period of time, every single day, where you just pour your heart out to Hashem about what is going on, and ask Him to fix things, and get more people to wake up and make teshuva.
  3. Say a Tikkun Haklali – or 7 – and again, have the intention that the prayer should sweeten a particular ‘issue’ or subject.
  4. Get hold of some of the Rav’s prayers on specific topics, and get into the habit of reciting a few a day. Go HERE for prayers in English, that have the Hebrew original attached.

Believe in yourself!

Believe in the power of your prayers, and your intentions, to turn this around!

Prayer is our strength, our real weapon.

But we just have to remember to bind our prayers to the True Tzaddikim before we begin, so they can use all this spiritual ‘ammo’ we give them with our prayers, to fight the battle where it really counts – in the Heavenly Court.

====

This is the statement of ‘binding’ that Breslov chassidim use, from Rav Arush’s site HERE.

Rebbe Nachman told his followers that it is beneficial to declare before davening: “I hereby bind myself to all the tzaddikim of the generation” (Likkutei Moharan I, 2:6, 9:4; Sichot ha-Ran 296….

* * *

This is because the tzaddikim elevate the prayers of the entire Jewish people, conveying each prayer to its proper Heavenly gate (Likkutei Moharan I, 9:3).

* * *

Therefore, it has become customary for Breslover Chassidim to recite the following verbal formula before each prayer service (as well as before performing any mitzvah or religious practice, such as immersing in a mikveh, studying Torah, lighting the Chanukah Menorah, etc.):

Hebrew: Hareini mekasher ‘atzmi le-khol ha tzaddikim amitiyim she-be-doreinu, ulekholha-tzaddikim amitiyim shochnei afar, kedoshim asher ba-aretz hemah, u-be-frat Rabbenu ha-Kadosh, ha-Nachal Novea Mekor Chokhmah, Rebbe Nachman ben Feige − zekhutam yagen ‘aleinu ve-‘al kol Yisrael, Amen.

English: I hereby bind myself to all of the true tzaddikim of our generation, and to all true tzaddikim who rest in the dust, “Holy ones who are interred in the earth” (Tehillim 16:3), and in particular our Holy master, the “flowing brook, source of wisdom” (Mishlei 18:4), Rabbi Nachman ben Feige − May their merits shield us, Amen.

Try it.

What have you go to lose?

And it for sure beats the heck out of pointlessly protesting on the street, or lying down ‘blissfully’, and just waiting for the truck to squash you.

I just got sent this, about new laws about to pass in Israel, God forbid.

====

I already posted this link up on my old, deleted website, but here it is again, for anyone who wants to object. We have 5 hours left to do that….

Everyone (who hasn’t already seen this) had better sit down to read the below links and the attachment.  I received from a friend today and if Mordechai Sones is reporting it, I imagine it is correct.

====

HERE is where you can object on the Israeli government website – they have 15,000 people objecting so far, but they probably need way more to stop the speeding bullet derech hateva.

If derech hateva isn’t your thing, then please consider spending half an hour today / tomorrow doing some serious clapping and dancing on this subject, to stomp these new dictatorial laws into spiritual oblivion.

Or, read 1, or 3, or 7 Tikkun Haklalis, to try and get this sweetened. Point is, there is certainly something you can do to object to this, especially to Hashem, the Master of the World.

Or, instead, you can do this:

Whatever works best for you.
