It seems like everyone in the world at the moment is sick.

I’ve had two kids with official ‘Covid’ the last two weeks, and I’ve also been feeling not so hot this week.

In the meantime, the snow has been falling here in Jerusalem, and 5…G antennas have been flowering all over the city for the last few months, and are apparently starting to work…

But there is still hope on the horizon.

Maybe, even a lot of hope.

First, I’ve come across this excellent video, that explains so much, so well, about what ‘Covid 19’ really is, who is behind it, and how the nanotech works, tachlis.

He explains this with a very level-headed approach, that really does try to look at all the information critically, not just running off with one-sided approaches that sometimes do more harm than good.

This really sums up so much, so well, please do watch it (speeded up….)

====

In the meantime, I’ve also been continuing to learn a great deal about sound, and it’s ability to heal the human body.

BH, I will try to some that side of things up in the next post.

But everything can and will turnaround for the good, BH, if we just stay close to God and the Torah and the true tzaddikim.

Don’t forget that prayer is sound…. and if sound by itself can heal the human body, imagine what ‘sound’ that is actually ‘prayer’ can do.

(Yes, that’s part of why the Rav sometimes spends literally an hour singing lecha dodi. It’s doing really amazing things in the world, that we can’t even begin to understand. Yet.)

====

I also want to share this, (below) from Chananya Weissman, that I felt was really excellently written, and summed up so much of ‘the problem’ with what is going on with Chaim Walder.

Before I do that, let me just spend a paragraph telling you about ‘gang stalking’.

First, go HERE if you want more information, including how ‘gang stalking’ was first developed as a psychological intimidation tactic by the Stasi in East Germany – but then quickly spread to ‘intelligence’ communities all over the world.

Tactics include – but are not limited to – slander, blacklisting, “mobbing” (intense, organized harassment in the workplace), “black bag jobs” (residential break-ins), abusive phone calls, computer hacking, framing, threats, blackmail, vandalism, “street theater” (staged physical and verbal interactions with minions of the people who orchestrate the stalking), harassment by noises, and other forms of bullying. In some cases, the harassment escalates to physical violence.

====

The more I read about ‘gang stalking’, the more I’m spotting that modus operandi in our own Jewish community.

And of course, there’s a pronounced ‘online / social media’ gangstalking aspect to all this, too. It’s really something to think about, and to ponder. I’m starting to wonder if I’ve also been at the sharp end of some of these tactics, particularly a few years’ back, when I first started publically ‘coming out’ as a defender of the Rav.

I got SO dissed all over Facebook (lead by a lot of people who today I know are paid ‘social media influencers’); I had people writing me abusive emails all day long; my ‘blog’ on the Jpropaganda was summarily suspended; and it really has felt – for years! – as though any avenue I tried to pursue in my own writing as a ‘career’ has always been attended with so many bizarre difficulties and unexplained dead ends….

====

(As a side note, I am still getting emails from people telling me that they have friends ‘warning them away’ from my blog, because I support Rav Berland.)

Also, the ‘weird noises / vibrations in the home’ aspect to all this also rang bells for me, because when I was living in Musrara, there was a time when I literally felt as though the ‘unexplained’ vibrations in my apartment were ‘dismantling my body’, somehow.

Weird as that sounds.

(As another side note, there is the biggest 5…G antenna I’ve ever seen stuck on top of the City Hall Building in Jerusalem, in Musrara. My daughter thinks the government is trying to kill off a bunch of clerks that it’s impossible to fire, due to the labor laws in Israel. She could be right.)

And now, over to Chananya:

The Woke Walder Train

The media has decided that Chaim Walder was guilty of the most heinous crimes. Of course, they cover their derrieres with terms like “alleged”, “accused”, “suspected”, and references to a kangaroo court, but they make it quite clear where they expect everyone to stand on this matter, as they typically do. We must whitewash the crimes of certain people – they have narratives and we must be sensitive – but Chaim Walder was the epitome of evil. With him, anything goes.

I will state for the thousandth time that I have no idea what Walder did or didn’t do, neither do you, and neither do the people issuing screeds against him. None of us support abusers, or covering up for them, or ignoring the plight of victims.

Those who engage in such rhetoric to censure and censor voices of sobriety are themselves being abusive. 

==

There is nothing virtuous about people who do this.

They are opportunistic phonies chasing the perceived moral high ground or they are pushing a deeper agenda. They couldn’t care less about victims – really, what have they ever done for actual victims? – and will eagerly victimize whoever stands in the way of their agenda. We should not be intimidated by their emotionally manipulative behavior or allow them to hijack the conversation. 

Several so-called “leading rabbis” have been playing this game, contorting Torah sources to suit their agenda, ignoring the copious Torah sources that are inconvenient to them, and engaging in emotionally manipulative rhetoric. I’ve asked them to answer a simple question: What would be the Jewish law if someone were to spread anonymous rumors about you? Rabbis who are unwilling to answer straightforward questions are in the wrong line of work, but none of these victim-protecting talking heads has responded to this one. They just disappear.

==

Yes, we are allowed to ask hard questions about what is being reported, challenge the procedure that was followed, draw different conclusions than the ones they demand from us, and still be firmly against abuse.

Not only do we support actual victims of abuse, we also support a sane, sober procedure that follows the Torah in all its details, and protects everyone from being railroaded. 

In fact, even those who are guilty of heinous crimes – not merely accused or strongly suspected, but undeniably guilty – must still be treated according to the parameters of Torah law. We cannot simply declare that someone is evil, therefore anything goes. In fact, although the Torah commands us to eradicate evil from our midst – and to be ruthless about it – the Torah also commands us to show compassion even for those who must be eradicated. Mankind has never and will never determine a more “moral” combination of ruthlessness and compassion than what the Torah outlines for us. 

==

Consider the following, about a heinous criminal who must be stoned to death. Before being cast down and stoned, the sinner is stripped of his clothing. This is so that even a thin fabric will not prolong the agony of his death by a single moment. According to Rabbi Yehuda, a man’s genitalia are covered, but not his backside, whereas a woman is covered from the front and the back. According to the Rabbis, a man is stoned completely naked, not a woman. (The biblical sources and reasoning are discussed in Sanhedrin 45A-45B.)

A scoffer might ask what difference this makes, and why we should concern ourselves with such things. After all, we are dealing with a wicked person who is condemned to death. So what if he suffers a little longer? So what if he is shamed by his nakedness? Bring it on! He deserves it!

No, he doesn’t deserve it. He deserves precisely what the Torah commands, and not a tiny drop more. Rabbi Yehuda and the Rabbis debate what God in His compassion wants us to protect a heinous sinner from more: gratuitous physical suffering or gratuitous emotional suffering.

The Gemara then asks why an adulterous woman, whose punishment is intended in part to deter such behavior in others (Yechezkel 23:48), is covered on both sides to protect her dignity. Why not stone her andhumiliate her as much as possible? That will deter others even more!

Rabbi Nachman answers in the name of Rabba bar Avuha: 

אמר קרא ואהבת לרעך כמוך ברור לו מיתה יפה 

The verse says, “Love your fellow like yourself”. Choose for him a nice death.

==

If we must execute someone, we must, but we have no right to increase their physical or emotional pain any more than necessary.

This teaching appears repeatedly in the laws of capital punishments. We must treat even the worst of sinners as we would want to be treated. We cannot pardon them, of course – punishment must be administered according to Torah law – but we are forbidden to pile it on just because we are “right” and they are “bad”. 

Compare the Torah’s exquisitely measured balance with the unrestrained reactions of the MeToo, cancel culture maniacs when they place someone in their crosshairs.

Anything goes. The more the better. Each one tries to outdo the other in their orgy of mob justice. Anyone who displays the slightest hesitation or restraint is reflexively classified as “bad” and will receive the same unrestrained fury. The people he thought were his friends will turn against him and tear him apart without any compunction. Once they flip the switch, it’s over.

This behavior is not only abominable according to the Torah, it is actually the way of idolatry. One who serves God carefully measures his every action, and learns from the Torah how to properly balance conflicting needs. Idolaters have no limits. Once they decide something is “good”, then more of it must be “more good”, with no end. 

==

This is why those who are at war with God are constantly pushing the envelope.

Whether they are attacking the traditional family, promoting sexual perversity, corrupting children, race-baiting, or forcing masks and dangerous injections, there will always be one common thread: an absence of limits or boundaries. The definition of what is “good”, along with the definitions of so many other things, will constantly change as they advance their anti-God agenda. Whatever is virtuous today will be scorned tomorrow as “progress” marches on.

The fraudulent, hypocritical “rights activists” will never clearly define an end goal after which they will stop fighting, because they live for the fight itself. Like the false gods they serve, they will never be satisfied with the suffering they inflict on decent people. There must always be more blood.

==

We see the same pattern with those jumping on the bash Walder train.

This train, like all the others, has no brakes. It careens forward and steamrolls everything in its path. It has no precise destination, after which it will come to a quiet and permanent rest, but an endless vendetta of destruction in the name of moral virtue. The more the better.

Those driving this train – idolatrous priests who set the agenda, and the media that broadcasts it on their behalf – do not want us to pause, to breathe, to think. They want us to react, overreact, and become hysterical. They want to desensitize us to limits, boundaries, and responsible, balanced behavior. They want to normalize atrocities, to turn decent people into savages who destroy each other – all for the benefit of the people on top.

==

Those who serve God behave with intelligence. Those who serve idolatry behave with impulse. 

The Walder situation is just another example of idolatrous priests manipulating people to act and react impulsively. We are not supposed to ask hard questions about what really happened, how a secret trial by a kangaroo court can be condoned, let alone trusted, or how justice and compassion should be balanced even if someone is guilty. We are supposed to become savages and normalize unrestrained malice against anyone who is classified as “bad”. And we are supposed to enjoy it. 

==

Their latest “novelty” is burning Walder’s books by his grave.

Normal people do not burn books in cemeteries, and virtuous people do not cheer them on. These are sick people, as sick as the abusers they claim to be opposing. Tomorrow they will classify other people as “bad”, and they will burn their books too. Maybe it will be you. Maybe it will be holy books.  Those who fail to proceed with caution when it’s someone else in the crosshairs deserve it.

The Torah opposes everything about how the Walder situation has been handled. We are not cruel even to those who must be punished. We must be sensitive to the slightest unwarranted physical or emotional pain to someone about to be executed. We do not behave like idolatrous sadists even if someone is “bad” and we are “right”.

Those who do not protect the God-given rights even of the guilty trample on the God-given rights of the innocent.

    Rivka,

    I am really sorry you went through so much pain because of your foresight and courage in defending the Rav when everybody was piling up insults on him. You were so right – way before anybody had any clue about the true story. You did your research and you stood by it – and it cost you a bundle. Kol Hakavod. May you reap the fruits of your Mesirut Nefesh.

    On another note, I liked this quote a lot: Chananya is quite a Talmid Chacham and a Mentsch!

    “Those who do not protect the God-given rights even of the guilty trample on the God-given rights of the innocent.”

    Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov!
