If you watch one thing about how DNA nanobots actually work, this is it.

It’s just 18 minutes long, and it shows Israeli scientist, Ido Bachelet, talking about how these DNA nanobots really work – back in 2013, eight years ago.

By the end of this video (shmirat eynayim friendly), you will understand exactly how all DNA nanorobot technology works.

And then, you’ll be able to understand exactly what was in Pfizer’s ‘Covid 19’ shot.

(I told you that Ido Bachelet’s work was sponsored by Pfizer from 2015 on, right? And that’s when all this ‘nanotech’ suddenly disappeared from public view….)

TEDMED Israel 2013 Cómo los nanobots cambiarán la medicina (Dr. Ido Bachelet) from TROM on Vimeo.

 

And then, let’s move to the next part of this discussion:

How do we derail this?

How do we find out what these DNA nanorobots have been programmed to do?

Who is controlling these DNA nanorobots today?

How can the body, the bloodstream, get rid of these nanorobots, before they are activated externally by ‘the internet’ (as described by Ido in a different video, HERE.)

These swarms of nanobots literally have their own unique IP address….

I am not making any of this stuff up.

====

At the end of the video, Ido talks about his hopes that they will be able to use these DNA nanobots in humans.

He gives a timescale of between one and five years for accomplishing this.

That talk was back in 2013.

====

Here’s another short video (4 minutes), that shows you specifically how these DNA origami ‘robots’ have already been built and rolled out, and how they actually work in the human body:

====

I know all this sounds so ‘sci-fi’ – but it’s real.

And I wonder if all those poskim that gave their haskamot to the Pfizer shot in Israel, and if all those rebbes who forced their followers to get vaccinated, and all those doctors who told people this gene therapy was ‘totally safe’ –

I really wonder if they had any idea what those syringes actually contained?

And what this DNA nanobot technology can really do?

And I wonder, what would have happened if they had really done their homework, and really researched what a ‘nano-lipid’ actually referred to?

Would they have changed their minds, and stopped pressuring the public to do something that clearly they should never have been asked to do, without proper informed consent?

Or where they in on this, like Netanyahu, and Moshe Bar Siman Tov, and all the rest of them, right from the start?

====

Remember this?

Rabbi Gershon Edelstein gets vaccinated, calls on public to do the same

====

And this, from HERE?

Relevant snippets:

Rabbi Yaaqov Medan, a senior religious Zionist figure wrote in a missive to the public… “We have the opportunity to perform a great mitzvah, to come together for the common good and get vaccinated, and set an example for others, and so support the doctors and nurses who endanger their lives every day to curb the virus.”

==

Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi Gershon Edelstein also urged the community to get vaccinated, saying that “there is no reason to worry or fear” the vaccine as it is “proven and tested.”

==

“We are privileged that Israel is a world leader in the coronavirus vaccination,” the Head of the Jerusalem College of Technology Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon wrote in a letter. “In order to succeed in eradicating the plague, we need everyone to get inoculated.”

====

The JewintheCity website rounded up a whole bunch of rabbis who ‘approved’ the Covid 19 ‘vaccination’, HERE.

Here’s some more snippets:

Rabbi Asher Weiss Tells Students and Public “Definitely Yes” Take the Vaccine

Rabbi Asher Weiss, a leading Haredi legal authority in Israel with a large following in the United States, told his video class this week, “When we deal with the question [of whether] to take the vaccine: Yes. Definitely yes.” He went on to say, “People are dying, people are suffering, and we could alleviate this pain, and diminish the suffering and save many people. This is a safe vaccine as far as we could know.” Read more here.

==

Rav Chaim Kanievsky and More Support Vaccine

Rav Chaim Kanievsky, as well as Rav Gershon Edelstein and Sephardi rosh yeshiva Rav Shalom Cohen of Yerushalayim, approved the findings of Ezra Lemarpe, the medical support organization, which conducted extensive research into the vaccine. The rabbis recommend that anyone able to receive the coronavirus vaccine should do so. Read more here.

Ponevezh Roshei Yeshiva Take Vaccine and Endorse It, Alongside the Belzer Rebbe

Some of the biggest gedolim in Israel are publicly advocating getting vaccinated. In Bnei Brak, Rav Gershon Edelstein and Rav Baruch Dov Povarsky, Roshei Yeshiva of Ponevezh, both received the vaccine and encouraged others to do so. The Belzer Rebbe also signed off on an announcement from the Belz Beis Din guiding his chasidim to take it. Read more here.

Israel’s Chief Rabbis Endorse Vaccine, So Too Bnei Brak Mayor

Along with Israel’s Chief Rabbi David Lau, Bnei Brak Mayor Rabbi Avraham Rubinstein, Israel’s Chief Sephardi rabbi, Rav Yitzhak Yosef, son of Rav Ovadia Yosef zt”l, endorses the vaccine. He states, “I am calling on our brethren in the Holy Land to follow doctors’ instructions. Allow them to heal us… Now that we have learned that a vaccine has been found that prevents COVID, and all the necessary trials were conducted and experts say that the vaccine is effective in stopping the pandemic and is not dangerous – each and every person must be vaccinated in accordance with doctors’ orders.” Read more here.

====

There’s more rabbis listed, go take a look if you’re interested.

====

But do you remember articles like THIS one, that totally smeared anyone who dared to question this narrative, at the time?

An influential rabbi in the ultra-Orthodox sect has instructed his followers not to get vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, warning that it “can make them gay,” according to Israel Hayom.

The report states that Rabbi Daniel Asor has also asserted unfounded conspiratorial claims surrounding the coronavirus pandemic in the past, stating that the virus and the vaccines are manufactured by a “global malicious government” made up of a combination secret societies such as the Illuminati, the Freemasons and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates in an attempt to “establish a new world order.

====

Chortle, chortle.

What a ridiculous conspiracy theory….not.

How different all these statements and stories sound now, that we have a lot more information under our belts about what those ‘nano lipids’ really were, and what DNA nanorobots can really do.

====

There is so much teshuva required here, on so many levels.

BH, God will help us all to get real, face this issue down, get with the real Tzaddik HaDor, Rav Eliezer Berland, and then start to figure out what comes next.

Because prayer, tzedakah and teshuva can still turn all this around for the good.

UPDATE:

Here’s at least one of the patents that Ido Bachelet has taken out on his ‘DNA Origami’ nanobots.

WO2014170898 – NON-IMMUNOGENIC AND NUCLEASE RESISTANT NUCLEIC ACID ORIGAMI DEVICES AND COMPOSITIONS THEREOF

This morning, I opened up ‘Masa al HaShorashim’.

***Updates Below***

It’s one of the books that collates teachings from the Rav, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, from the last few years, in Hebrew.

I opened it up ‘randomly’, and I got to this:

Truth will only be revealed at the end of days, after strength is given to the lies to ‘explode’ all over the world.

====

I carried on reading, and it was a variation on a message that the Rav has given over repeatedly, during the last few years, including HERE:

The more falsehood there is, the more truth will be revealed in a clearer way.

Rav Berland: falsehood-must-prevail

====

I carried on reading, and I quickly got to this:

Don’t do any ‘articles’ against any ‘articles’!!! 

Why? Because there should be even more [slanderous] articles!

Don’t do any articles ‘against’ the articles!!!!

====

I carried on reading, and I got to this:

The more lies that they say, the more we are going to succeed….

So like this, they should continue to write in the papers, that it should be written everywhere.

Until only ten people remain, and not more, who can recite the kaddish…. and the whole world should oppose me.

====

And then, finally, to this:

The more they tell lies about a person, the more he merits to length of days

[i.e. a long life].

====

The message is crystal clear, isn’t it?

Today, I woke up to tons of slanderous stories all over that same lying MSM that told us ‘Covid 19’ was a real pandemic; that Pfizer shots containing experimental magnetised nanobots that can hack your brain are ‘totally safe’; and that 45 people died in Meron only because of Chareidi ‘overcrowding.

At this point, if ‘people out there’ can’t recognise the lies from the truth, if they can’t see the modus operandi that gets oiled up and cranked into motion again and again to try to destroy the enemies of the State – what can I do about it?

Even if I wanted to get into a whole rehash of what’s really going on here, or to discuss how corrupt governments keep sick, innocent old people ‘in prison’ indefinitely with no trial, until they apparently have no other choice of ever getting out except making a plea bargain, the Rav clearly warned me off from doing that, this morning.

====

There are big spiritual considerations underpinning all of this.

Each time we get to another national precipice, another fork in the road towards geula, another period of terrible danger for Am Yisrael, the Rav engineers some new form of terrible public disgrace for himself.

All this is deja vu.

Except this time around, we are post-Covid 19, post-lockdowns and masks, post-‘magnetic’ Pfizer shots, post-murder in Meron, post-Ahuvya Sandek, and ‘Officer X’.

So, believe what you want to believe.

There are consequences for continuing to live in the world of lies, and those consequences – both spiritual and material – are only growing, as time goes on.

====

If you can’t see for yourself what’s going on, I’m not going to tell you.

This is an olam hafuch, an upside-down world, a world full of lies.

Our sages warned us long, long ago that the ‘successful’ people – the people who get all the kavod, and all the people lining up at their doors, and all the positive press coverage – those are really the ‘small’ people, spiritually.

The bottom of the pile.

And the ‘unsuccessful’ people – the ones who everyone calls ‘conspiracy theorists’, and ‘cult members’; the ones that get ‘excommunicated’ by corrupt Beit Dins in Bnei Brak; the ones that get negative, non-stop, slanderous ‘coverage’ in the media; the ones that are continually hounded and persecuted by the corrupt State, and it’s corrupt institutions – those people are really the top of the top.

The holiest of the holy.

====

But that truth is only going to come out at the ‘End of Days’ – together with a whole bunch of other very uncomfortable truths about what is really going on here.

So believe what you want to believe.

All this is deja vu, just another spiritual test that God is administering, to see who had learned their lesson about believing the lying media and corrupt State, and who hasn’t.

====

If you plotted a graph with ‘fanatical believers in Covid 19’ and ‘accusers of Rav Berland’, I think you’d probably achieve a 99% overlap.

It’s all the same modus operandi, the same lies, the same procedure that we’ve seen by Ahuvya Sandek, and by the murder in Meron, and by the cover-up of the ‘suicided’ Officer X – and in getting millions of people to line up to get a dangerous ‘gene therapy’ that flooded their bodies with remote-controlled ‘magnetised nanobots’ that can hack their brain and their cells.

So, believe what you want to believe.

And then don’t come crying, when all those media lies you believed lead you into a very dark place.

====

On a related, but totally different note:

I want to tell you about a new site, called ‘Words from the Rav’, that is bringing bite-sized ‘Rav Berland’ Torah to the web, and exploring how we can really apply that advice to our real lives.

You can see the site HERE – and I highly recommend it!

(And not only because it’s my husband who is putting it together. I’ll tell you more about how that happened another time.)

====

Here’s the full URL, if you want to bookmark it, and the site is encouraging input from readers, to share their own ideas about what the Rav is really saying, and how to really put it into practise:

https://www.wordsfromtherav.com/

This is not ‘top down’ Torah – it’s more about all of us banding together, to try to figure things out as a team.

And personally, I really like it.

====

UPDATE:

Take a look at this article, just put up on the RavBerland.com website, if you want to start to get some appreciation of who the Rav really is:

And let’s all be on guard against the awful wave of sinat chinam all these awful politicians, and their supporters in the shadows, are trying to unleash on the nation.

Keep remembering, there is good and bad on every side of this equation, and only God is running the world and really deciding things.

Don’t fall for all the nonsense these people are spewing trying to set up another ‘them’ and ‘us’ paradigm, and trying to encourage the different groups of Jews to hate each other.

Personally, I hate BAD ACTIONS.

I hate the EVIL, not the evil people.

(Mostly. Honestly, sometimes that’s too hard to maintain 100%…)

====

They know that if the good people on all sides of the equation band together, then evil is finally finished.

And that’s why they are trying to stir things up so much, right now.

So, Israel apparently has a ‘new’ government and a ‘new’ President.

‘Itzhak Eizak’ Herzog got the vote from more than three quarters of the MK’s in our oh-so-corrupt Knesset, including from the ‘religious’ parties.

Now the blinkers are off, it’s clear that he’s the choice ‘from outside’ that got parachuted into the cushy position of ‘President of the State of Israel’, to continue the Frankist-Freemason agenda for this country.

Because, as I keep saying, it doesn’t matter who we really vote for, or who we really get leading us, they will only be allowed to rise to the top and wield real power, if they are part of the ‘machine’ that’s been controlling the Jewish world for centuries, already.

====

All these people are connected to each other, with very deep family and idealogical ties that go back a very long way.

I’m currently wading through more and more of the family trees, and the details that have been deliberately hidden from the public, and the the ‘false personas’ and fake stories that have been created to hide just how incestuous all this really is.

BH, I will have another chunk of Real Jewish History for you a little later today.

====

But in the meantime, I was totally struck by the video up on the Yeshiva World News site, together with the ‘puff piece‘ praising the secular Herzog as the ‘religious world’s choice’ for President.

Here it is, below, almost a full four minutes of Herzog only talking (in English) about his meeting with the late Lubavitch Rebbe, and how important it was for Herzog’s father – who was not a ‘religious’ man – to get the Rebbe’s blessing for his son:

====

I’m just finding it so strange, that 25 years after the Rebbe died, secular politicians in Israel do a whole interview just reminiscing about meeting the Lubavitch Rebbe.

Why?

At least externally, the Chabad community in Israel is not very large, and it’s not like a lot of people are going to run out and ‘vote for him’ just because he met the Rebbe 30 years ago.

So what’s really going on here?

Watch the interview yourselves, see what ‘floats up’ in your own consciousness.

====

And then, if you’re bored, there are a whole bunch of other ‘secular-politicians-falling-over-themselves-to-meet-the-Rebbe’ videos you can watch, too.

Like this one, with Ariel Sharon:

====

Ariel is positively glowing when he speaks about his close relationship with the Rebbe, and all the meetings and yichidus he had with him over the years, starting in 1967.

Ah, Ariel Sharon.

We all remember what a tremendous force for good he was for Israel….

And where all that ‘advice’ and deferment to the Rebbe’s instructions led…

Let’s change the subject.

====

If you want more strange videos of rabidly secular Israeli politicians sucking up to the Rebbe over the years, then the good news is there are a lot to choose from.

But I’ll leave you with this one, of a young Benjamin (Nitay) Netanyahu, ‘getting a blessing’ from the Rebbe (with full text below).

 

====

Here’s a little of what they say (but I highly recommend you watch it yourself, to see how deferential Bibi is towards the Rebbe.)

Rebbe: I had much satisfaction from your first speech.

Bibi: I heard and saw your message.

Rebbe: May you continue in this path. God helps all those who wish to elevate others. How much more so when one begins with himself. Please don’t hold it against me for speaking about this in public.

Bibi: I intend to continue precisely on this path. I’ve heard the Rebbe’s message well.

Rebbe: It is the best path to avoid war, etc. “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved.” Blessing and success.

Bibi: I thank you for the opportunities to be helped by you, and to receive the spiritual guidance you provide not just for me, but for all Jews.

Rebbe: I am just starting my work.

Bibi: I know.

Rebbe: You are also just starting your new role.

Bibi: I have come to you at the start and I intend to return to you many times.

Rebbe: You will have to struggle with 119 others in the Knesset. Surely, you won’t be intimidated. Because God is on this side. Blessing and success with God’s mission.

====

Which side is God really on?

Is God really on Netanyahu’s side?

That selfsame Bibi Netanyahu who has been behind the ongoing persecution of Rav Berland over the last 7-8 years, which is continuing right now?

That same guy that sold all the citizens of Israel down the river to Big Pharma, with his ‘secret’ deal with Pfizer to forcibly inject as many of us as possible with the dangerous experimental ‘gene therapy‘ (aka magnetized nanobots that can hack into your brain…)?

That same guy who signed off on the ‘Covid 19 plans’ for Meron this year?

And who then deliberately started a war to try to take the nation’s mind of things, when Meron didn’t exactly go as planned and too many people realised that a mass casualty event had been deliberately organised by the government, to bring the religious public to heel?

That same guy who – I have a sneaking suspicion – will try to launch a war with Iran in the week he has left as PM, just so he can stay in power, and try to stuff all the skeletons back into the exploding cupboard?

====

At this stage, it’s hard – nay, impossible – for me to say that God is on Netanyahu’s side.

And what on earth is ‘the mission’ that the Rebbe apparently sent Netanyahu to do?

Let me put it out to the readers:

Can anyone out there tell me what ‘this mission’ actually is / was?

Because apart from polarising the country; destroying small businesses by the hundreds of thousands; welcoming missionaries of every stripe; indulging in regular ‘wars’ with Gaza that are just for show; locking us all down for a year and destroying our mental health; force vaxxing everything that moved with experimental gene therapies; controlling the press; sending the murderous police after Torah Jews in a myriad different ways; kick-starting massive anti-semitism across the globe; and taking bribes and kick-backs for so many things that we still don’t even know a fraction about –

What other ‘missions’ did Netanyahu actually engage in?

====

Sigh.

What I’m trying to tell you – again – is that the State of Israel is being run by the members of one big, extended family.

We’ve been covering some of those deep family connections between the ‘secular’ political world and the apparently ‘religious’ world here on the blog for the last few months, and I’m getting closer and closer to finally pinning this down.

But in the meantime, go back and read some of these posts, to see how ‘Rivlins’ and ‘Schneersons’ have been interconnected in Lithuania, and then over in Eretz Israel, too, right from the start.

====

Once you know more of what’s really going on, it becomes obvious why Herzog is our new President, and why the first thing he did is put out a video in English stating he was ‘blessed’ by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

It’s the same people, the same extended family, running the show here, regardless of external appearances and claims of being ‘religious’ or otherwise.

Poor Miriam Peretz.

She may have lost two sons on active duty in the IDF; she may have been the people’s choice – she definitely WAS the public’s choice for President – but she didn’t get a blessing from the Rebbe.

And when all is said and done, that seems to be the only thing that really counts, here.

====

UPDATE:

How do we explain this, from the Arutz 7 website HERE:

Senior Chabad rabbi pleads with Yamina MKs not to join Lapid – Israel National News

Rabbi Yitzhak Yehuda Yaroslavsky, considered the most senior Chabad rabbi in Israel, has sent a letter to the members of the Yamina party, pleading with them to reverse their decision to partner with center and left-wing parties to establish a coalition with Yair Lapid and others.

Yeshiva World News notes that the customary practice of Chabad rabbis is to avoid involvement in politics and that this step is a significant deviation from that quasi-policy.

“I am turning to you, unlike my usual habit, at literally the last moment, and in the lashon of the passuk [as is stated in the Torah] (Parshat Korach 16: 26): ‘Please turn away from the tents of these evil ones and don’t touch anything of theirs lest you die because of their sins,’” Rabbi Yaroslavsky wrote.

“This step poses a great danger to Klal Yisrael [the Jewish People] in all aspects and will be a bechiyahl’dorot [a source of weeping for generations] and it won’t be possible to stop the deterioration of this decision after, G-d forbid, the government is sworn in.

Anyone who thwarts this plan is assured that he will merit [great blessings]; withstanding this challenge will bring infinite blessing to each one of you and your families … You will be engraved with golden letters in the history of the Jewish People as having withstood this great test at a difficult time, and for bringing salvation to the Jewish People.”

====

Chabad didn’t send a letter like that when Yair Lapid and Bennett partnered with Netanyahu, 8 years ago, when Yesh Atid and Likud launched an all-out war on the Torah world in Israel.

So what’s so different this time?

And why are Chabad issuing not-so-veiled death threats like this?

====

UPDATE 2:

More ‘political pressure’ from the ‘apolitical’ Chabad, from Arutz 7:

Australian Chabad tycoon Yosef Gutnick, who in recent years has politically supported Yamina No. 2 Ayelet Shaked, saying that he sees her as the successor of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, wrote an open letter to her that was published in Yisrael Hayom on Monday.

“You and I know each other for many years,” Gutnick wrote. “I always strongly supported you, for your loyal adherence to the values ​​we share – a strong and uncompromising right-wing government – to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and not to allow portions of Eretz Yisrael to be given away.”

“Right-wing voters believed and trusted you, but now their votes are being stolen by you and other MKs by joining a government with partners you promised in the past not to sit with under any circumstances.”

“We recognize the right of others to think differently from us but most voters in the last election voted for a right-wing government. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rav Menachem Mendel Schneerson, always opposed any compromise on the Land of Israel, demanded our commitment to the sheleimus of our Eretz HaKodesh, and warned that such a government is dangerous to the residents of Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world.

“You always expressed great respect for the Rebbe. What changed? Why not go to another election so that your voters don’t feel cheated and can express whether or not they agree with your actions and those of your colleagues? Isn’t that the honest and democratic approach? What are you afraid of?

“Don’t be influenced by those who strive for power at all costs,” Gutnick asserted, in an apparent reference to Naftali Bennett. “In the name of everyone who trusts in you, please don’t take part in this so-called ‘government of change.’ Prevent this disaster, for the sake of the kavod and sheleimus of the Torah, Am Yisrael, and Eretz Yisrael. This is the hour of truth for you and your colleagues, to be sincere and honest representatives.”

====

Yamina MKs are getting a lot of death threats.

And no-one in this country wants a 5th election, just because a failed, corrupt prime minister who sold us out to big business, and big Pharma – repeatedly – can carry on running the country as his own private fiefdom.

There’s a lot more to say here…

Back in September 2020, against all the odds, I found myself in Uman for Rosh Hashana.

***Updates Below***

My blog had been hacked within a few days of me arriving, so I ended up writing about what was going on for the RavBerland.com site, HERE.

Towards the end of my stay there, when it was a day before Rosh Hashana, and it was obvious that despite all the effort, all the contortions, to follow the ‘Coronavirus Rules’ in Uman as set out by the ISRAELI government, they weren’t going to let anyone else into Uman, a bunch of leaflets got dumped all over the floor of Pushkina Street.

====

Here’s what they said:

*Voted for Shas or Gimmel (United Torah Judaism)? You got Bibi and Gamzu, who chased after, with anti-semitism and cruelty, the Rosh Hashana of Rabbenu in Uman. Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

==

*On the way to Uman for Rosh Hashana 5781: Thousands of Breslov chassidim experienced 20 days of exile and suffering in Belarus. And the ‘chareidi’ leaders in the Knesset, Deri, Litzman and Porush stayed silent. The chareidi newspapers, HaDerech, HaMevasar, HaModia, totally and utterly ignored the anti-semitic persecution of Breslov Chassidiut. Until when?? Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

==

* Myriads of Breslov Chassidim are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on Rosh Hashana. And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government. It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

==

* Deri, Litzman and Porush! Myriads of Breslov Chassidim have a pained, broken and ripped heart, from the decrees of Netanyahu and Gamzu. How could you totally ignore what was going on? Breslov chassid: Remember, and don’t forget!

====

When I wrote about all this back in September – how the ‘chareidi’ politicians, the ‘chareidi’ papers, the ‘chareidi’ movers and shakers totally turned their backs on thousands of pilgrims to Uman – and sided with the anti-semitic, evil government which was overtly and covertly persecuting them – I got some flack for that.

“Deri got you in to Uman….” I was told.

“UTJ went to bat for you. They did everything they could,” I was told.

I didn’t believe it then.

And I certainly don’t believe it now.

====

I’m totally a-political.

I’m not a leftist, or a rightist. I don’t vote. I believe all politicians are totally corrupt, and that the political system is a sideshow, a ‘distraction’ to make you and me feel like we really have some say in what’s going on.

Really?

Every single politician is bought and paid for.

Part of the system of ‘control from the top’. Anyone who can’t or won’t be ‘controlled’ doesn’t last very long, or get very far.

Politics is a dirty business, lest we forget, and just having a beard and a rebbe doesn’t change that.

====

So, I switched on my PC for the first time in days, and I saw this article that my friend sent me, from the Times of Israel:

Forty-five people died at Meron. Why are Haredi parties blocking a probe? 

WHY are they blocking an independent State Commission?s

The possible answers to that are terribly disturbing for ‘frum Jews’ like you and me – that’s why we have to keep fighting the tendency to shove all this under the carpet, and run away from it.

We have to look this monster in the face, for the 45 people who died in Meron – and also for ourselves.

====

Then, I read all these statements by ‘frum politicians’ trying to slay any opposition to Netanyahu and ‘the right bloc’ – and honestly, I am totally sickened by them.

I sit here, I put two and two together – and I understand that all these people are really the same. They are serving the same god – i.e. themselves, and their own vested interests – except one group has a beard and a rebbe, and the other group doesn’t.

45 people were deliberately murdered in Meron, on orders that came straight from the top.

And here we have ‘frum yidden’ who are not only going all out to cover that up, they are also actively praising the person who ultimately gave those orders as ‘the savior of Israel’.

====

Let’s update the stuff from Uman, for Meron:

* Myriads of frum Jews are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on L’ag B’omer – in a safe and respectful manner.

And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government, that resulted in 45 people being murdered in a crush that was deliberately created by the police at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs.

It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

====

I know it’s painful.

I know it’s so, so disturbing.

But the rot here goes so very deep, in every direction.

====

Yesterday night, I had a very powerful dream, where the atrocity at Meron was being ‘recreated’ – i.e. the same thing tried again, except in a different location.

I watched as all these ‘bad actors’ pretended to be this person and that person, all following their script, all playing their part in a perfectly-choreographed ‘drama’ that was again designed to kill as many frum Jews as possible.

Except this time, in my dream, someone sounded the alarm.

====

Someone went around telling all the innocent members of the public that there were demons in our midst, ‘dressed up’ to look a certain way to fool the public, but who were really just ‘bad actors’, playing their part in trying to trap, injure and kill religious Jews.

So, when those ‘bad actors’ showed up with their gates, and their blueprint for how to crush more Jews to death – we fought back.

We stood up to them.

We didn’t just ‘roll over’ and go along with what the ‘Police Actors’, and the ‘Politician Actors’, and yes, the ‘Rebbe Actors’ told us.

And  as soon as we did that, they – and the threat they really pose to Torah Jews and Judaism itself – disappeared just-like-that.

It was a good dream.

It came to teach a very important message.

====

Last week, one of my kids was a sadranit (usher) at a wedding for one of the big chassidic Rebbes, that got moved to the sports arena in Jerusalem, because it was ‘safer’ after what happened when the bleachers collapsed at the Karlin-Stolin shul in Givat Ze’ev.

She came home very disturbed by the whole experience.

She told me there were 10-11,000 people in the Arena – and every single one of them had a ‘Green Passport’ to flash, together with their entrance ticket.

My daughter has been an usher for quite a few different events the last few months, and even with ‘secular’ crowds, there is always a large contingent that doesn’t have a ‘Green Passport’.

And they are always let in, quietly, one way or another.

====

But that night, there was not a single person who wasn’t waving a ‘Green Passport’ to show they’d been cheerfully ‘vaccinated’ in her face.

She asked someone what was going on, and she was told:

The Rebbe said everyone needed to get a ‘Green Passport’ in order to come to the wedding, so we all did it.

Just like that.

Apparently with no questions asked.

====

Moshe Leon, the Mayor of Jerusalem, was guest of honor at the wedding.

And my daughter told me that all night, there were massive adverts going on all over the place for the different kupot, or health funds, that exist in Israel.

When she asked someone what was going on, she got told:

How do you think we pay for all of this?

Ah.

Big Pharma and the Ministry of Health are funding chassidic weddings in Jerusalem.

That starts to explain so much, doesn’t it?

====

The rot goes so very deep, and it can’t be labelled as a problem just for ‘secular’ people, or ‘leftists’.

Those ‘bad actors’ exist all over the place, they are on every side of ‘the argument’ – and usually, they are the ones who are leading all the machloket, and hatred of ‘the other’.

====

I have so much more to say on this subject.

But I’ve said enough for now.

We need to stop making excuses for ‘bad actors’ just because they have beards and rebbes.

When things don’t make sense – when they seem wrong, bad or dangerous – we need to find our courage and our voices, and to start speaking up and questioning what is really going on.

Pikuach nefesh – saving a soul, saving a life – is a massive mitzvah in the Torah.

There are people in the world who are mamash trying to kill us, just for wanting to live an authentic Torah life, and just for wanting to serve God and to believe in our True Tzaddikim.

And there are people with beards and rebbes who are ‘in bed’ with those evil people, and following the scripts they are being given to recite, to manipulate and control the people who believe they are really ‘frum yidden’.

But this time, when the gates go up again – when the bleachers ‘fall down’ again – we need to push back with all our might.

Remember this. And don’t forget.

====

UPDATE:

Yesterday, I went to see a good friend in Bet Shemesh I haven’t seen for ages.

We were talking about what happened at Meron, and she told me the story of her gannenet’s brother. (A gannenet is a kindergarten teacher.)

That brother had died in the crush at Meron.

People then came to his shiva, and explained how that brother had pulled them out of the crush, and saved their lives.

But then somehow, he was taken in an ambulance to hospital where he somehow – inexplicably – died.

Not only that, the hospital / Abu Kabir then refused to release his body to the family for two whole days.

My friend isn’t a news junkie like yours truly, but she found something about this whole situation with the gannenet’s brother terribly disturbing.

====

When I was discussing this with another friend, and telling her how Abu Kabir was refusing to hand over the autopsy results on the people who died to Lahav 443 – the police agency that is supposedly investigating what happened in Meron – my friend told me:

But we don’t do autopsies in Israel.

And I just looked at her incredulous.

Because, of course that’s what they were doing in Abu Kabir.

With or without the families’ consent, because don’t you know?

We live in a dictatorship, where things like ‘free choice’ and ‘human rights’ actually don’t exist, and especially not for religious Jews.

====

There are some very disturbing implications here, for how Zaka, and United Hatzolah are really operating hand-in-hand with the government, to do things that should not be done, according to Torah law.

(In case you didn’t know, Magen Dovid Adom is a government agency, just with a different name, so OF COURSE they are serving the State of Israel’s agenda. But United Hatzolah and Zaka are meant to be ‘independent’ charities. In theory.)

====

When I went back to Meron, I realised two things about United Hatzolah:

  1. There is a camera mounted on the wall of the ‘United Hatzolah’ command centre, directly at the bottom of the Reb Dov Shvil steps, were 45 people were deliberately suffocated to death behind a police barrier that the police are still claiming doesn’t exist.

That camera is pointed straight up the enclosed ‘alley’ built by the Ministry of Health especially for this year’s L’ag B’omer, and it for sure has footage of exactly how the exit was blocked, when, and by who – and the results of that action.

We know the police went through Meron disabling all the “independent” CCTV cameras in Meron the day before L’ag B’omer.

My gut is telling me that the United Hatzolah camera was still operating, and has a very important story to tell.

I want that footage to be made public.

====

2) The second thing I realised about ‘United Hatzolah’ is in plain view – and very disturbing.

And it is this:

That killer crush occurred RIGHT NEXT TO THEIR ‘COMMAND CENTRE’ IN MERON.

You see that brown / grey structure in the picture below, roofed with white sheeting?

That’s the permanent ‘United Hatzolah’ central command post in Meron.

====

The United Hatzolah ‘command centre is right at the bottom of those stairs, where 45 people died.

This makes it even more incredible to me, that a fatal crush developed over the course of 10 minutes – and it took 10 minutes before United Hatzolah ‘arrived on the scene’ to start helping people, and to put the call out about what going on.

How is this even possible?

Were the ‘United Hatzolah’ people in central command asleep, as that killer crush occurred right outside their window?

Why didn’t they get involved immediately, to force the police to remove the gates and release the suffocating pressure on the crowd?

How could ‘trained first-aiders’ not recognise what was developing, literally before their eyes, and NOT CALL FOR HELP FOR TEN MINUTES?

====

And then there are more first-hand accounts, like THIS, sent to me by one of my readers, written by a mother who had several children caught up in events at Meron, including by those stairs:

When I checked the news Sunday morning, it was like reading about a completely different event than the eyewitness reports I heard.

What those attending all said – that I didn’t see discussed at all in the English news – was that the sole exit from the Toldos Aharon hadlaka was blocked by a gate put up by the police. At the same time that more and more people were allowed in at the entrance, no one could get out, leading to a deadly crush and numerous people dying of suffocation.

====

Here’s another snippet from those eye-witness accounts:

When the announcement was made that people had died, the atmosphere at Meron changed in an instant. All music and dancing ceased immediately, replaced by tehillim, crying, screaming. Everyone was ordered to leave – at least 100,000 people.

But there was no plan, no clear evacuation directions. People were told to go in one direction and ran there, to be told they had to go in the other direction and then ran in that direction.

No cars were allowed in, no buses were allowed in. There was almost no cell coverage, people couldn’t call for help, look up directions, or contact family members whom they were separated from.

====

Whatever else the 5,000 police assigned to Meron were doing that night, ‘helping people’ and ‘maintaining safety and order’ was not on the priority list.

====

Dear readers, this is still only the tip of the iceberg.

Why are our ‘chareidi’ politicians – and the ‘religious leaders’ who are backing them – trying to quash an independent State Commission into Meron?

Why is it that a month on, the police haven’t even questioned the policemen and women who were directly involved in the incident, nor any other official?

This from HERE:

Kikar HaShabbat news site has stated that thus far the police are just conducting checks and have not yet investigated any police officer or official.

====

If all this isn’t setting off the ‘massive cover up’ alarm, then I don’t know what will.

The State of Israel – and all the ‘frum yidden’ who are working hand-in-glove with it, despite appearances to the contrary – want this story buried and forgotten about.

Because when the truth comes out, we’re all going to understand what we are really dealing with, and how much moral corruption of every stripe exists on all sides of this equation.

But the blood by those stairs in Meron is literally boiling.

And this story is not going to just ‘go away’, until real justice has been done, and those responsible for the murder in Meron are exposed, and brought to justice.

You might also like this article:

 

If you think there is no ‘Litvack’ interest in Meron, you’d be wrong.

***Updates below***

Granted, most of us believe that the Litvack / Lithuanian interest in Meron kind of starts and stops with statements like the one below, from R’ Gershon Edelstein in Bnai Brak – who appears to have some form of mild ruach hakodesh.

====

On April 28th, 2021 – two days before the mass murder in Meron – he put out the following heavily publicised statement:

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

Leading Lithuanian-haredi rabbi calls on followers not to travel to Meron on Lag Ba’omer. ‘We do not travel; we sit and learn.’

====

Snippet below:

“We have learned from the Brisker Rav, from the Chazon Ish, from the Ponevezher Rav – and they did not travel [to Meron],” [R’ Edelstein] explained, listing former leaders of the Lithuanian-haredi community.

“They did not travel, and therefore we do not travel. We sit and learn: Learning Torah is equal to everything else. We do not travel: Torah learning is equal to all else.”

====

So that’s nice and clear, isn’t it.

And if that wasn’t nice and clear enough, we have other more minor luminaries in the Litvack universe echoing the same message ad nauseum. Like this, from HERE:

Yes, Lag Ba’Omer is a happy day!… But who says we are supposed to celebrate a Yohrtzeit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and the illumination of the Zohar that he taught with mass events that outstrip the most grandiose wedding?… Something has gone terribly wrong.

When I was in Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin under the guidance of Rav Yitzchok Hutner ZT”L (1906-1980) I do not recall any special mention or fuss being made about Lag Ba’Omer. There was no hadlaka (bonfire) tthere, there was no special singing or dancing, there was no official lecture about the day. Nothing. Just no Tachanun, perhaps a wedding or two of students.

This is admittedly the Litvish, Lithuanian yeshiva approach…

====

But of course, everyone should be holding by it.

That’s the ‘subliminal message’ I picked up from all these articles. And it’s the same message you get about daring to go to Uman for Rosh Hashana, too. Good Jews, good ‘Litvaks’ just don’t do that sort of un-Jewish, quasi-avoda-zorah stuff involving travelling to tzaddikim.

But there is a puzzle here that I can’t quite seem to figure out.

So I thought I’d try and thresh it out here on the blog, and we’ll see what turns up.

====

On Pini Dunner’s blog HERE, he set out who ‘owns’ Meron, on the religious side of the equation.

Relevant snippet below:

Ultimate control over what happens in Meron is in the hands of a shadowy group known as the Va’adat Hachamisha (“committee of five”)… 

One of the two Ashkenazi groups [who ‘own’ Meron] is headed by Rabbi Avrohom Frohlich – the former proprietor of a Judaica auction house in Jerusalem who closely associates himself with the Brisk community in Jerusalem, a group that utterly rejects the State of Israel’s legitimacy… He is closely followed in his inflexibility and refusal to consider any changes to Meron’s infrastructure by his Ashkenazi counterpart, Rabbi Mordechai Dov Hacohen Kaplan, son of Safed’s late chief rabbi, Rabbi Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan.

====

Me being me, I went to look these people up.

Let’s start with R’ Mordechai Dov Hacohen Kaplan, descendant of Shabtai, aka the SHACH, whose family have ‘inherited’ the position of Chief Rabbi of Tzfat over the last six generations.

There’s lot of interesting stuff I could tell you, but let’s focus in on this pertinent snippet, for this post:

The Kaplan family are about as hardcore ‘Litvak’ as it comes.

If you go to the Hebrew Wikipedia entry for R’ Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan, here’s a bit of what you learn:

He was a member of the Council of Torah Scholars of Degel HaTorah. Degel HaTorah is an: ‘ultra-orthodox Lithuanian political party in Israel’.

Not only that, R’ Kaplan senior seems to have studied with just about every big Litvak ‘luminary’ of the 20th century, including:

  • Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky
  • Rabbi Shabtai Yagel of the Slonim Yeshiva
  • Rabbi Shabtai Weigel Slonim of the Mir Yeshiva
  • Rabbi Shmuel Rozovsky of the Lomza Yeshiva (and later of the Ponevezh Yeshiva)

And while he’s at the Lomza Yeshiva, he rubbed shoulders with many other ‘Litvak’ luminaries, including:

Rabbi Yosef Rozovsky, Rabbi Reuven Yosef Gershonovich , Rabbi Eliyahu Mishkovsky , Rabbi Zalman Rotenberg , Rabbi Zvi Markowitz, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky and more.

====

And if that wasn’t enough, he makes aliya to Israel with none other than the Brisker Rabbi himself, R’  Yitzhak Zeev Halevi Soloveitchik, descendent of R’ Chaim of Volozhin.

And if THAT wasn’t enough to prove just how ‘Litvak’ R’ Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan really was, he got his smicha from another very interesting big personality in the Litvak world, called R’ Isser Zalman Meltzer of the Slutsk yeshiva.

In fact, there is so much huge, Litvak yichus going on there, on his Wikipedia page, it’s almost making my eyes water.

So now, let’s set out the difficulty I’m having.

====

How is it, that the two Ashkenazi organisations who are part of the “Va’adat Hachamisha” who control the site of Meron on the ‘frum’ side of the equation are both being run by people with very deep ties to the Litvak community?

For example, R’ Mordechai Dov Hacohen Caplan’s sister is married to Rav Mordechai Drori, the Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Chemed.

Rav Drori’s brother was the late R’ Ozer Drori, who according to the YWN,

“[L]earned in Ponevezh as a bochur under his Rav, Hagaon Harav Gershon Edelstein.”

====

Hey, wait a minute.

Where have we heard that name before?

Ah yes, I remember now:

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

====

R’Avraham Froehlich is proving harder to track down ‘in the real world’, but I will take Pini Dunner’s word for it, at least for now, that he’s closely associated with the Brisk Litvak faction.

So, that makes two out of the two Ashkenazi groups who ‘own’ Meron being run by people who are about as LITVACK as you can get.

So now, the questions start to multiply like mushrooms after rain.

Here’s a few, to get us started.

====

  • How did this strange situation come about, given that no Litvaks rabbis light bonfires at Meron, nor apparently hold with the custom of ‘praying to dead people’, and other things they like to describe as ‘quasi-avoda-zorah’?

  • Why have the two Litvak Ashkenazi groups who ‘own’ Meron been blocking the very necessary renovations required, for the site to be able to safely accommodate the hundreds of thousands of people who visit every year?
  • Why is it that none of us know that the same people who tell us ‘not to go to Meron’ for L’ag B’omer are closely linked to the people who ‘own’ Meron, at least on the Ashkenazi side of the equation?
  • Who gets to decide who should be leading the Ashkenazi organisations who participate in the “Va’adat Hachamisha”.
  • Who put the money down, in the first place, to create these Ashkenazi Hekdashs, and to get them recognised by the Ottoman rulers of Israel 200 years ago? (If we can get the answer to that, then we’ll really start to know a whole bunch of other things, too.)

====

Do you see the problem, here?

The Chassidim are getting blamed for the ‘awful infrastructure’ of the RASHBI tomb at Meron, by the secular authorities and the police, and also – and often much more harshly – by people who proudly claim to be religious Jews who are part of the Litvak world.

But who is really at least partly responsible for that ‘awful infrastructure’ in the first place?

The two Ashkenazi ‘hekdash’ institutions, who officially ‘own’ at least a bit of Meron – and who are being run by dyed-in-the-wool Litvaks.

There appears to be something very strange going on here, and another mystery that needs solving.

BH, with God’s help, we’ll get to it.

====

In the meantime, let’s be clear that the hardcore Litvak community in Israel has a very strong, historical link to the ‘ownership’ of Meron, and that this link has been deliberately obscured from the public, for reasons that are not yet obvious.

Now we know this information, we can start to ask why the Litvak people running the Ashkenazi institutions that ‘own’ Meron don’t stand aside, and let representatives of the communities who actually believe in things like going to Meron for L’ag B’omer, and the importance of visiting the graves of tzaddikim take over?

I mean, c’mon guys, what does Meron have to do with learning Toyrah?

And why are you running these organisations when you clearly don’t believe in the whole inyan of going to Meron for L’ag B’omer in the first place?

What else is going on here, under the surface?

I think it’s time we popped the hood, and tried to find out.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

A reader sent me links to the following:

First THIS, which explains how the feuds between the Ashkenazi and Sephardi organisations who ‘own’ Meron have basically brought us to the stage where the State of Israel is ANYWAY going to expropriate the tomb of the Rashbi at the end of three years, in 2023 if they can’t figure out how to work together, to do what needs to be done at the Kever.

The basic gist is that in 2008, there was a State Comptroller’s report into the RASHBI site, that lambasted the ‘owners’ for not renovating the site properly, and keeping it properly maintained.

==

Then at the end of 2011, the State of Israel decided it was going to ‘expropriate’ the site – which honestly, also makes me queasy, as I don’t trust a thing the State of Israel decides to do, vis-a-vis things that are holy to yiddishkeit, and to Jews, generally.

So then, a massive court battle ensued, which apparently only ended in February 2020 of last year, where the ‘Vaad HaHamisha’ – or ‘Council of Five’ in Meron – was given three years to put appropriate administrative arrangements for the site in place (whatever that actually means…).

If they didn’t manage to do that – then the State of Israel ‘reserved the right’ to expropriate ownership of the site at the end of 2023.

====

If we could trust the government here, and if we could believe that it really only has the best interests of the religious Jewish community at heart, maybe that wouldn’t be such an issue

But we can’t.

And so it is.

====

The next article my reader found is also very interesting, in English, HERE:

Here’s a longish snippet:

Between the rival [Ashkenazi and Sephardi] trusts, the battle lines are clearly drawn. According to Shalvash [of the Sephardi Trust], “All areas are our areas” and the Ashkenazic trust “has no control of” Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai. But Ben-Zion Guberstadt, board member of the Ashkenazic trust, states simply, “We say the whole thing is ours.”

Both groups claim hundreds of years’ precedent, and appeals through the past five years to courts — both religious and civil — have failed to settle the feud…

Both groups say that they are ready to build prayer houses and ritual baths to serve the million-plus pilgrims a year. The Sephardim say they would use a multimillion-dollar Safra legacy. The Ashkenazim say that even without this money, they have donors in England who will give $25 million.

[Rivka note – this is an old article, and some renovations of the Tomb itself, using money from the Safra legacy, have subsequently been carried out in Meron.]

==

The Sephardic trust, however, says that the Ashkenazim are driven less by a genuine interest in the site and more by the financial implications of control…

The Ashkenazic trust is battling for control “because they want money. That’s the name of the game,” Shalvash said in an interview with the Forward. Guberstadt flatly denied the claim…

The prevailing opinion in the Israeli government is that it should take control of the site, an inside source said.

On Meron, Rabbi Shraga Shnitzer suggests a different solution. Shnitzer, head of the independent charity Ohel Ha’Rashbi-Meron, which provides free food to visitors, believes that decisions about the site’s future should be placed in the hands of the most respected contemporary halachic authorities, the gedolei hador.

He said, “Ashkenazim and Sephardim need to sit together with gedolei hador who will come to the place and hear from everyone at Meron and decide what is allowed to do and what it is not allowed to do.”

But Schvinger says that any resolution will open up another can of worms, as there are rival splinter groups within each trust. “If it is decided that either the Sephardi or Ashkenazi hekdesh are the owners, this will open up a whole new question as to who is the true Sephardi or Ashkenazi hekdesh.”

====

The ‘Schvinger’ quoted here is Yosef Schvinger, head of the ‘National Center for the Management of Holy Places‘, and Aryeh Deri’s right hand man, who we wrote about HERE.

There’s a LOT of very dodgy things going on around the grave of the RASHBI at Meron, but at least one aspect seems to be bringing us back to the idea of ‘following the money’.

==

Right at the start of the investigation into Meron, I had some emails from someone who told me that the grave is a very big money spinner for the people who are running it.

It brings in literally millions of shekels in donations every year, and those donations are made to the various organisations and people who ‘own’ it.

Something about this just doesn’t seem right, does it?

We’ll have to tread very carefully, to try and unpick all this, because while the financial incentive is clearly looming large in the battle for control, it’s certainly not the only reason that at least some of the people involved in Meron are there, and doing what they are doing.

At least some of those people also care for the sanctity of the site, and the well-being of the pilgrims who are visiting it.

But sorting the wheat from the chaff is going to be challenging, to say the least.

And at this stage, I’d really love to know who is sitting on those ‘hekdeshim’, which ‘hekdeshim’ came first, the Sephardi or the Ashkenazi ones, who is making the decisions and really wielding the control on the ground – and how much money is flowing through the coffers of these organisations, and where it’s all going.

Once we know that, we’ll know a lot more about what ‘went wrong’ in Meron this year.

For sure, it was State-sponsored mass murder carried out by the police.

But clearly, there is also a lot of cheshbon hanefesh that’s required on the ‘frum’ side of the equation, too.

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

Baruch Hashem, now we are having some ‘achdut’ between the Sephardim and Ashkenazim after all…

SHAS and UTJ are working together to try to help cover up what really happened in Meron on L’ag B’omer.

This comes from HERE:

Mount Meron: UTJ and Shas propose gov’t controlled committee of enquiry

Interior Minister and Shas head Arye Deri would control appointment of chairman, and at least two other committee members, while the chief rabbis would also appoint a representative.

====

In case you forgot, Deri and ‘Interior Minister’ Amir Ohana were two of the ministers, together with Yuli Edelstein, Nachman Ash, and Netanyahu, who signed off on the ‘Coronavirus rules’ for Meron this year, that directly killed 45 people, and injured hundreds more.

So of course, a ‘government controlled committee of enquiry’ where the appointments are all being controlled by the very people who need to be investigated to get to the truth, is worse than useless.

People, how much longer are we going to put up with these so-called ‘religious’ politicians, who only care about their own egos?

45 people died, the Government is poised to swoop in on Meron and ‘expropriate it’, what happened in Meron is now being used as the ‘excuse’ to stop big weddings, and visits to other holy sites, and to try to ‘control’ even more aspects of religious life – and our two ‘religious’ parties in the Knesset are totally complicit in the cover up of what really happened on L’ag B’omer.

Man, it stinks.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, I did more digging around the whole question of ‘who owns Meron’, and that brought me to a couple more interesting bits of information.

#1 – There is apparently also a massive corruption investigation currently going on in land ownership in the whole of Meron, over the last 40 years, which began in April 2019.

You can go HERE to read more of the details, if you want. (I’m choosing not to translate this, at this point, for the blogbut Google translate works well enough, if you don’t have Hebrew:)

==

#2 The Hebrew Wikipedia contains more information about who ‘owns’ Meron.

It seems that the Algerian ‘Abu’ family basically bought the site when they made aliyah in 1817.

That then somehow became the ‘Sephardi Trust’ – or at least one of them – who took over management of the site, which was registered in the Trust’s name in 1888, when Eretz Yisrael was still under Ottoman control.

In 1920, when it became mandatory to official register ownership of the land, most of the land was registered in the name of the Spanish Trust, with a small area now also registered in the name of the ‘unknown’ Ashkenazi Trust, while the rest of Meron was put in the name of the Israel Lands Administration.

Snippet from Wiki:

“In 1976 , an agreement was signed between the Spanish Trust and the Ministry of Religions, according to which the ministry will rent the complex for a period of 5 years. This period ended in 1981, when the complex returned to the management of the Spanish Trust. However, during the period a number of different organizations and bodies clung to the place, which refused to vacate their place afterwards.

Splits and divisions in various dedications, led to four various public agencies being involved in managing the complex, in addition to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and National Center for the Development of the Holy Places…

Since 1998, there has been a legal dispute over the ownership of the site, between four different endowment bodies, which are splits of the old Sephardic and Ashkenazi Trusts.

The litigation took place in both the Rabbinical Court and the District Court , with appeals being submitted to the Supreme Court . The State of Israel was also involved in the litigation on the issue, and finally in 2008 the Supreme Court decided to appoint a five-member committee (one from each body of the sanctuary, and the State Representative as chairman), to manage the compound.”

====

So the ‘Vaad Hahamisha’ is this five-member committee, that was appointed by the State of Israel’s Supreme Court in 2008.

And the ‘State Representative’ is R’ Shmuel Rabinovitch, the Rav of the Kotel and chair of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation.

You probably won’t be surprised to learn that there is a whole can of worms opening up around the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, too, but I’ll save that for another post.

R’ Rabinovitch lost a nephew in the crush at Meron.

He wrote about that – apparently in English! – HERE.

But it’s strange there is no mention of him chairing the ‘Vaad Hahamisha’ that is actually at least nominally responsible for the site’s infrastructure.

====

In the meantime, from what I can tell with the very limited information available, the Sephardim seem to be getting the short end of the stick here, as their Trust / Endowment clearly owned the site first, and clearly owns most of the site, historically.

Also check the comments, below, for more input on ‘who really owns Meron’ which at this stage I can’t verify, but it’s certainly adding another dimension into an already murky discussion.

It’s hard to see anyone associated with Meron – in any capacity – coming out of this smelling of roses.

Everywhere I turn, there seems to be decades of corruption bubbling up – even when we’re not talking about the State-sponsored mass murder of pilgrims.

Sigh.

====

UPDATE #4:

Another interesting addition to the list of ‘figuring out what really happened in Meron’ can be found HERE, on the Kikar Shabbat website.

Take away points:

“[A]nother document of the licensing officer from the northern district of the police, which was revealed to “News 12”, states that the engineer approved the buildings, the bleachers and the lighting stage in the Toldot Aharon compound, and determined that each bleacher would have 220 to 300 people. There will be 1,800 people in the gathering plaza and the total number of celebrants in the place will not exceed 3,159.

In practice, and although the Israel Police approved the decision of the licensing officer and the safety plan, about 20,000 people were present – six times the number allowed.”

====

But here is the really telling stuff:

“Also, in a document sent three days before the incident, the engineer alerted police that “due to the expected amount of crowds, all emergency exits should be kept free.” But in real time there were policemen on the ground who were not properly instructed, and even blocked one of the exits.

Moreover, at a concluding safety discussion, which took place a day before the celebration, according to one of those present, when talking about the quantities of celebrants, and the engineer expressed concern about the congestion, District Commander Superintendent Shimon Lavi replied: “Do not worry [about access] To the site, I know how to stop them if necessary. “

(Emphasis mine).

====

This is incredible.

It seems the police are saying they DID block ‘one exit’ out of Toldos Aharon the night of L’ag B’omer.

And of course, we know that THERE WAS ONLY ONE EXIT out of Toldos Aharon, the night of L’ag B’omer, as the Health Ministry ‘Coronavirus Regulations’ meant that the other three were blocked the whole time, with fences and gates.

And the police’s own safety engineer flags congestion as a real concern three days before L’ag B’omer – before most of the Ministry of Health’s additional fences and ‘checkpoints’ and the ‘tunnel of death’ had even been built – and is just waved off by the police.

Why aren’t these people being arrested, already?

====

That Kikar Shabbat article also throws some light on the specific issue we’re discussing in this post, stating there is:

“[A]n open check for tens of millions of shekels, which the Safra Foundation previously placed in favor of renovating the complex and repairing the many defects in it, but while most members of the famous ‘Va’ad HaHamisha’ in charge of the complex were happy, Avraham Froelich, who heads the “sanctuary” of the fanatics, refused – because of their principle not to enjoy “Zionist money”.

I understand the principle.

But I’d really like to know just who Avraham Froelich is representing.

Who is he working for?

Who is making these decisions, behind the scenes?

And why is all this information so very hard to come by?

UPDATE 5:

Yosef Schvinger and Israel Deri, of the Holy Sites Authority, were questioned by the police two days’ ago, on May 18th. See more HERE.

The director general of the Center for Holy Places in the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Yossi Schwinger and Israel Deri, in charge of the northern region, the center’s cargo, were interrogated by Lahav 433 with a warning in recent days, and released today [Tuesday, May 18, 2021.]

And in case you need more evidence that we are living in the olam hafuch, or upside-down world, the anti-Torah ‘Yesh Atid’ is bringing a bill to the Knesset on Monday to demand an independent State Commission of Inquiry into what happened in Meron.

Let’s see how the ‘religious’ parties, UTJ and SHAS, try to wiggle out of voting in favor for it, so they can keep the cover up going.

What’s the ‘correct’ spiritual response to everything that’s going on, right now?

Let me spoil the suspense by telling you up front that I don’t have a pat, neat answer to that question. But what I do want to share here is some general guidelines, for how each of us can start to figure out what God really wants from us, and what message we are meant to be getting here, on the individual level.

====

Let’s start with an (anonymised…) email exchange I had a few days ago, around the subject of what happened in Meron:

Dear Rivka:

What’s your take on the following videoclip:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1El353YyacJKm2iDb9UmqDL0CfE2wS07I/view?usp=sharing

How would you explain it in the light of your perception of what transpired?

Thank you in advance!

====

It’s a clip of one of the Meron survivors who lost a child saying that he refuses to discuss the idea that there was anything nefarious going on that evening.

Here’s what I wrote back to my correspondent:

If you’re asking how do I understand his viewpoint, that God did it and we shouldn’t question ‘why’ God did it – that’s his derech, and kol ha kavod to him.
My derech (tries to….) follow the 3 rules of emuna set out by Rav Arush, based on Jewish traditions that pre-date Breslov, but are part of the Breslov path of my rabbi:
1) God is doing everything.
2) Everything God does is for the good (even though sometimes it’s v painful)
3) Everything that happens contains a message, about what we need to work on, fix, rectify, improve.
I’m looking at #3 with all this stuff.
There’s a message here – many millions of messages here – and each person needs to identify their own message, and run with it, to figure out what God really wants from THEM.
====

Here’s what my correspondent sent back:

Thank you very much for your prompt and detailed response! I appreciate your analysis and lessons learned.

What my friend, who forwarded this videoclip to me, saw in it – is the refutation of “the conspiratorial insights” as per testimony of this person. It impressed him immensely and he demanded that I should be “moideh al hoemes”.

I was wondering if his reply was attributable to his “aberration state” of consciousness following such profound personal tragedy.

Also, I was thinking that perhaps, people in Israel are locked in the deep state of denial vis-a-vis the scale and pervasiveness of wickedness emanating from the Erev Rav in power that their Orwellian mode of thinking prevents them even under normal circumstances from facing the reality. And ultimately, simple concern and vigilance of possible outcome: who knows who else was there in the shiva room then, who was taping the scene and where could the recording eventually land?

Yet, with all that in mind, the resolve to deny any shred of a foul play does beg a question.

Perhaps, you might have additional clarifications.

Thank you!

====
Here’s what I replied:

I can’t really answer the question, as to why he believes what he believes, or is saying what he’s saying.

I don’t know why.
It certainly strikes me as very strange, and there could be any number of explanations as to what is really going on.

I think the thing to focus on is our roleour response to all this.

It could well be that Hashem doesn’t expect the people who lost loved ones to stand up and fight this battle for the truth – they’ve been through enough.
But you and me – we don’t have that excuse.
And I feel in my soul, that IF there was foul play here – and the more I look into it, the more it seems that this is the case – then I owe it to myself, as a frum Jew, and to the victims, and to the greater Am, and ultimately also Hashem, to stand up for the truth.
Or at least, to try to, given that I’m also very limited, and I’m also groping in the dark here, a lot of the time.
====

The point is this: spiritual responses are not ‘one size fits all’.

Each person in the world is on their own path, with their own mission, their own job to do, their own stuff to fix.

So where one person may get the message to just ‘see the good’ in something like Meron, and another person might get the message that they need to strengthen their Torah learning, or where bullet-proof tights – those messages are all individual to them.

The message I got – very strongly and repeatedly in my hitbodedut about what went down into Meron – was to research it as fast and as thoroughly as I could, because something very bad happened here, and we can’t just sit back and watch it all get covered up.

====

Which brings me to the next point.

Very well known individuals came out to say that we cannot know the reasons why Meron happened, and that there are no prophets in our generation that can tell us.

Again, I respectfully disagree with this approach.

EVERYTHING contains a message from God about what we may need to work on, fix rectify and change, absolutely everything – and especially soul-shaking events like the mass murder of 45 people in Meron on L’ag B’omer.

And I also disagree that there are ‘no prophets in our generation’.

====

A full three weeks before the atrocity in Meron, Rav Berland gave over THIS shiur, and that same day, he also sent two busloads of his talmidim up to Meron to go and pray on a Thursday night, dafka between 12am – 7am, to avert a ‘terrible decree’ he foresaw on the horizon.

Here’s some of what he said on April 11th, 2021, almost three weeks before L’ag B’omer:

====

[O]n that day, they decided to slaughter all the Jews. 100,000 Jews in five minutes.

How long does it take to kill 100,000 Jews?….
All the police will go on the microphone at 6 in the morning… And they will make an announcement to wipe out all the Jews, all the Jewish nation….

The goyim are waiting all year to start chopping… To decapitate, to [separate] the Jews from their heads. Only [waiting] for permission from the king.

They are just waiting for the announcement, the megaphone, and then within 10 seconds there will not remain any Jews in all of ‘Istanbul’…And so at 6 in the morning, no memory [of the Jews] will remain.

Judenrein, Judenrein, Judenrein.

Everything will all be cleansed of Jews. And Jews will not live in ‘Istanbul’, until the end of their lifetimes.

====

So then, the gezeira will occur, and then Jews will no longer live in ‘Istanbul’ forever. It will be Judenrein… And so, we will have a city cleansed of Jews, and then we’ll have fun.

And what a good life we will have!

====

This is what [the goyim] thought in their hearts – and it’s forbidden to reveal it.

Whoever reveals it, oy va voy. The electric chair in the city square. They would always say that there was one like this who used to tell things to the Jews, always!

And the Jews would then nullify the gezeira within five minutes. They would bring a few coins, they would collect at the wall (Kotel) a few agarot (pennies) and sweeten it all. What’s the problem? A Jew knows how to sweeten everything.

In a thousandth of a second, he can sweeten all of the gezeirot in the world – so [the Turks decided] don’t reveal it, and that’s it!…

====

It’s already 1 in the morning, and [the minister who loves the Jews] can’t fall asleep. He cries out, hatzilu! Save us! Save us! Save us! Save us!

They are going to destroy all of the Jews, and they don’t know anything about it!

====

So he ran to the head of the community, at 1 o’clock in the morning, already everyone is asleep…

[S]uddenly, BOOM! CRASH! What incredible banging on the door! CRASH! BOOM! They are breaking down the door.

And the head of the community, he doesn’t understand what’s going on. The FBI has arrived, the KGB have arrived – only the KGB would make such banging.

He ran in a panic to open the door… He sees the most important minister, the most important minister.

He says to him, Listen, in another five minutes no memory will remain from all of Am Yisrael. Run quickly to the King! I’m fleeing from here. Oy va voy, maybe they will come after me! Today everything is recorded!

If they record me, I’m finished! I’m lost! The electric chair! He called out to the minister, where are you running to?

====

The minister with kol od nafsho bo (all the soul that was left in him) jumped all the stairs in one jump.

The head of the community, did not know what to do. He did not know where to run. Where can we go? In another five minutes, אhere will be no trace left of all the Jews.

Six in the morning, 9.30 – there won’t remain the trace of even a single Jew.

Run quickly! Run quickly, and save all the Jews! Just run, they need to run!

====

How the head of the community ran!

Wow! Not even the best athlete couldn’t catch up with him. He woke up all the heads of the community. It’s already 3 in the morning. Everyone is running.

They don’t know their right from their left, north or south, east or west. They don’t know where to run to, in which direction, where to run, where to flee to, where to go…

====

The heads of the community, let’s say Shuvu Banim, began to sing one passuk (verse) for three hours, ‘Who performs wonders alone, because His kindnesses are forever’.

[On April 11th, the same day this shiur was given over by the Rav, two coachloads of Shuvu Banim went to Meron, on the instructions of a ‘hidden Tzaddik’, to try to sweeten a very harsh decree that this ‘hidden Tzaddik’ could see on the horizon.]

Everybody sing! [Rabbi] Shimon is singing with us! [the Rav is singing with them] ‘Who performs wonders alone, because his kindnesses are forever’. There are still another 20 minutes before 7am, ‘to perform wonders alone, because His kindnesses are forever.’..

====

….Come, let’s run to Balfour!

Maybe there, Bibi will sweeten something…Everyone, yallah, run, run!

How they ran! Wow!

I remember it, they ran, they stampeded over 10 cats and 5 dogs.

There are indictments, to crush a cat is worse than murdering a human being, today.

B’kitzur, they bang for the gatekeeper, four in the morning. By six – they say there will already be no trace remaining of the Jews.

They didn’t tell about the decree, because we can’t make the announcement five minutes before. They didn’t make the announcement – because people would cancel it. Only at that moment. And then, they would all come, and gomarnu. He / it will decapitate 10 people, and slaughter, and within five seconds there will not remain one Jew in ‘Istanbul’…

====

The guard wakes up.

What’s going on here?! Why are you breaking down the gate?! I’m going to bring the police on everyone!! They said, no, no! There is a terrible decree here! Some decree on the Jews! We are the messengers of the Jews! There is a decree to wipe out all of us!

Yes, I heard it. I heard something about this. They said it’s forbidden to reveal it….

====

….He jumped 10 stairs in one jump.

Banged on the door. [The mother of the sultan] came out in her pyjamas, wearing her night robe. What’s going on? Guests? I heard that the head of the community arrived.

Don’t ask! They are going to kill all the Jews!

What?! Bring them into the lobby. I’m coming down.

She slid down all of the 10 steps. She jumped it in one jump. What’s going on?! They said there’s a decree!! They are killing the Jews! They said it’s forbidden for us to reveal it. If we reveal it, they will hang us all in the city square…

They crushed 20 cats. 100 dogs, on the way.

She has 100 indictments until today.

To run over dogs is worse than killing a human today.

====

Who can read this, and honestly not see – with hindsight – exactly what Rav Berland was describing?

On the same day that he sent his students up to Meron, to go and pray to avert a terrible decree?

And now, you tell me: can we really say ‘there are no prophets amongst us’?

====

Why are all these terrible things happening right now?

There are many reasons, and each of us has to do our own cheshbon hanefesh, talk to God, and figure out what the specific message is for us, that we need to work on figure out.

But there are certainly clues that the ongoing awful treatment of Rav Berland – and how the frum world has turned its back on him, leaving him to be tortured in prison by the same reshaim who killed 45 holy Jews in Meron – has at least something to do with all this.

====

Remember THIS, from three days ago?

A terrifying message from the elder Kabbalist, the Tzaddik Rabbi Amos Gweta shlit”a of Netanya.

“For a long time the Jewish people are silent, great rabbis are silent, the entire world is silent — about the disgracing of a great Tzaddik, the Tzaddik of the generation, who is Rabbi Eliezer Berland shlit”a, who they are disgracing from the morning to the evening.

Rabbi Berland shlit”a, they’re torturing him for a year and a half in prison — he still hasn’t been tried, and everyone is afraid to protest….

 “If [people] don’t protest the [insult] to the honor of Rabbi Eliezer Berland, there will be a tragedy a 1000 times greater.”

====

There are many, many spiritual messages coming down right now.

Each person needs to do their own cheshbon hanefesh, to see what they themselves are being required to recognise, rectify and fix.

But at least for some people in the frum world, re-examining their attitudes towards Rav Berland – and towards the lying, corrupt, murderous, anti-Torah ‘State of Israel’ who has been persecuting him groundlessly for the last decade – may need to loom large in that process.

I’ve pulled together the basic relevant information about what happened in Meron into a PDF.

If you click the link below, you should be able to download this.

It has a lot of screenshots, and tries to pull everything we’ve learned together over the last couple of weeks into an easy, simple to understand document.

Accident or Murder in Meron – PDF

Given what just happened in Givat Zev – and the fact that the police has inexplicably slapped a gag order on the investigation into that – I think it’s imperative to get this document around as many people, as fast as possible.

There is a war going on against the religious world in Israel right now, and the gloves have really come off, since Meron.

====

Just a few days ago, the kabbalist Amos Guetta warned that if more of us don’t start protesting what is happening to Rav Berland, the disasters are just going to keep going, and going to get 1,000 times worse.

Things are pretty bad here already!

I can’t begin to imagine what 1,000 times worse would look like….

So, we have our work cut out for us.

====

 

 

In this penultimate part of the series about the Meron atrocity, we’re going to take a look at who signed off on what.

Because while the people who were operating the crematoria, and policing the gas chambers, were undoubtedly cruel and sadistic, they were still just murderous scum who were ‘only following orders’.

Same thing here.

Over the last few posts, we’ve been building up a picture of what was really going on in Meron that shows clearly that ‘blocking the exit’ by AREA 41 was only the final coup de grace in a meticulously planned operation to mass murder hundreds, and probably even thousands of Jews.

So now, let’s take a look at what ‘agreements’ were made; who signed off on what, to see if we can get an idea of whose orders were being followed, that terrible night in Meron.

With God’s help, let’s do this.

====

EXHIBIT 1:

The text below is a translation of THIS news story, that appeared on the ‘Bhol Chareidi’ news site, on April 29, 2021, the day before L’ag B’omer:

====

Here’s a little of what it says:

(To ensure we have clarity, I will put the original Hebrew, then my English translation underneath.)

שעות לפני פתיחת אירועי הילולת הרשב”י במירון מפרסם פרויקטור הקורונה נחמן אש את המתווה המלא לאירועי ל”ג בעומר במירון תשפ”א. 

במסמך שהגיע לידי ‘בחדרי חרדים’ עולה כי בדיון שהתקיים אמש בהשתתפות שר הבריאות אדלשטיין, שר הפנים דרעי והשר לביטחון פנים אמיר אוחנה שם סוכם על מתווה האירוע בהר מירון על בסיס עבודת המטה שהתקיימה בין הגורמים הרלבנטיים בשבועות האחרונים.

בדיון סוכם שהמרכז הארצי לניהול המקומות הקדושים ומשטרת ישראל יעשו ככל הניתן על מנת ליישם את המלצת משרד הבריאות כדלקמן:

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Just hours before the opening of the celebrations of the hiloula of the RASHBI in Meron, Corona Tzar Nachman Ash publicizes the full outline for the celebration of L’ag B’omer in Meron, 5781.

A document obtained by Behadrei Haredim states that in a discussion held last night with the participation of Health Minister Edelstein, Interior Minister Deri and Internal Security Minister Amir Ohana, the outline of the celebration on Mount Meron was agreed upon, based on the work done between the relevant parties in recent weeks.

At the meeting, it was agreed that the National Center for the Management of Holy Places and the Israel Police will do everything possible to implement the Ministry of Health’s recommendations as follows:

====

Let’s sum things up as we go along, as this is probably going to be an important post, with a lot of vital information.

We are being told here that the ‘health’ guidelines for how L’ag B’omer should be conducted this year, 5781, was agreed upon by the following ministers:

Yuli Edelstein, Minister of Health

Aryeh Deri, Minister of the Interior

Amir Ohana, Minister of Internal Security,

Nachman Ash, the ‘Coronavirus Tzar’.

And of course, the whole thing then went to Netanyahu for his agreement.

These politicians then tasked the police, and the  National Center for the Management of Holy Places, with implementing these dangerous ‘health’ guidelines – with deadly results.

====

The police we’ve covered in other posts, and their part in implementing the murder in Meron is obvious.

But let’s take a look at the ‘National Center for the Management of Holy Places‘, to see what we can learn about that organisation.

====

THIS article appeared on the horrible YNET site, shortly after the atrocity in L’ag B’omer.

====

Here’s a relevant (translated ) snippet:

Going underground: Director General of the Center for the Development of Holy Places has remained silent since the Meron disaster.

Joseph Schwinger, director of the Center for the Development of Holy Places, has been the liaison between all the bodies involved in organizing the celebration for 20 years…

Around two hours before the terrible disaster in Meron, Yosef Schwinger, the director of the Center for the Development of Holy Places, and the person most identified with [organising] the hiloula of the RASHBI, removed responsibility [for the event] from himself.

[He said in interview]:

“The one who is responsible for operations in the field is the Israel Police, and it’s forbidden to let them run away from this matter.”

====

Doesn’t it strike you as odd, that TWO HOURS before the fatal crush in Meron, this guy was being interviewed live on TV blaming the police, and saying they were responsible?

Ynet explains this very strange occurrence like this:

“It is likely that Schwinger, nicknamed the “Meron Chief of Staff”, already felt something was wrong at the time. “I’m already waiting to get to the next day,” he said, and told [the interviewer] that he himself had been buffeted by all the crowds of people who were filling every spot in the grave complex.

“Children are almost being crushed, it’s a very unpleasant spectacle,” he said.

====

But as soon as the atrocity actually happened, Schwinger dropped off the radar.

So, we have the ‘Meron Chief of Staff’, head of the Center for the Development of Holy Places for 20 years, clearly aware that something bad is in the offing two hours before the fatal crush occurred – and he does nothing about it.

To be fair, we all know that all these so-called ‘religious Jews’ in the government are just window-dressing, with no real power. They are just ‘following orders’, same as everyone else.

They are the PM’s ‘religious-looking’ poodles, whose job is to keep persuading the religious public in Israel that they really do have some political power, someone in government who is really looking out for them.

But of course, Meron clearly showed us all that’s a total lie.

Let’s continue.

====

Here’s what else we can learn from that YNET article:

  • Schwinger is Aryeh Deri’s right hand man – and has been for 20 years.
  • Schwinger is the liaison between the police, the fire brigade, MDA and the other bodies involved in the L’ag B’omer celebration, and participates in their joint work.
  • He also gets an annual budget of about NIS 15 million, which is entirely dedicated to the L’ag B’omer celebration.
  • Schwinger doesn’t report to the Religious Affairs ministry, he reports directly to Deri, and the Center for the Development of Holy Places has none of the regulatory oversight you’d expect.

====

Let’s quote this next bit directly from YNET, Hebrew original first, then my translation:

השיטה הזו אפשרה למרכז להתנהל כאקס-טריטוריה גם בכל הנוגע לכספים. גורם בוועדת הכספים סיפר שמעולם לא היה פיקוח על האופן שבו חולקו מיליוני השקלים שהועברו למרכז לטובת ההילולה במירון. “שכונה”, אמר זאת הגורם. בניגוד לרוב הרשויות הממשלתיות, המרכז אינו מקבל תקציב רק מהמדינה אלא רשאי לגייס תרומות. “רק שלא ברור לאן הולך הכסף הזה”, אמר גורם אחר.

====

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

This shita enabled the Centre to operate as an ‘extra-territorial’ body, also in relation to funds.

A source in the Finance Committee said that there was never any supervision of the way in which the millions of shekels transferred to the Centre were distributed in relation to the celebration in Meron….

Unlike most government authorities, the Centre doesn’t only receive a budget from the state, but is also allowed to raise donations. “It’s just not clear where that money is going,” another source said.

====

Where it clearly WASN’T going was into improving the basic infrastructure of the site in Meron, for the pilgrims.

But that’s a post for another time.

I want to point out one more thing, that Schwinger had apparently been warning for years that the hiloula in Meron was not being managed in a safe way.

Why nothing was done about that is also a post for another time, but it brings us back to the point that the ‘religious Jews’ in the government here are just paper tigers. They are following ‘orders from above’, same as everyone else.

====

I was also really shocked to learn which ministers were supporting a full Independent State Commission into the atrocity, and who wasn’t.

Again, from YNET:

“Ynet contacted all government ministers to understand their position regarding the establishment of a State Commission of Inquiry.”

Most of the MKs who wanted a State Commission were from Blue and White, including Benny Gantz.

Nearly all of Likud, bar Tzachi Hanegbi, WANTED THE POLICE TO INVESTIGATE THEMSELVES.

And ‘religious’ ministers Aryeh Deri, Yaakov Litzman and  Rafi Peretz either dodged the question, or went totally underground.

This is so mind-boggling…. 45 people are murdered by police actions in cold blood in Meron, and our so-called ‘religious’ MKs simply don’t care about getting to the truth of what really happened?!

Why are they so scared of the truth being revealed?

====

So now, it’s time to turn our attention to ‘whose orders’ were being followed, that night in Meron.

There is an effective ‘dictatorship’ occurring in Israel – and this is has been going on for years.

There is one key person making the crucial decisions in this country, and that person then finds ‘patsies’ to hide behind, so there is some built-in ‘plausible deniability’.

I’m not mentioning names, but you all know who I’m talking about here.

And that person themselves is ‘taking orders’ from people behind the scenes, who really don’t have the Jewish people’s best interests at heart.

Let’s continue with the story of Meron.

====

While I was trawling through a million-and-one sites that last few weeks, trying to piece together the real story of Meron, I came across THIS blog site.

There, I read a weird reference translated from the Hasifot.com website about something called the ‘Pima police’, who were alleged to have been operating in Meron, on the day of atrocity.

This is the relevant snippet:

A commenter on Telegram, Becky Aloni, stated:

“זה היה מתוכנן מאוד הם רצו להקרות ליהודים מי שולט פה כי רוב היו שוטרי משטרת ההסדר העולמי “פימא

“It was very planned they wanted to happen to the Jews who control here because most were policemen from the global police force Pima.”

I don’t know what “Pima” is, but were there people acting as police in Mt. Meron who were bad actors?

====

Well, my atuned journalist nose for ‘news’ started twitching when I read that, and I started trying to track down these ‘Pima police’, who were apparently in Meron this year.

I turned up nothing, nada, in my search for ‘Pima police’.

But then, I realised that the Hebrew had been mis-translated, and that the woman was really talking about ‘FEMA police.’

All of a sudden, things got interesting again.

But was there any demonstrable connection – at all – between the State of Israel and FEMA?

(For those of you who don’t already know, FEMA stands for ‘Federal Emergency Management Agency’.

Here‘s their website – and this agency has been figuring large in nefarious ‘New World Order’ type scenarios for decades.)

====

So, I type in ‘FEMA and Israel’ – and very quickly, I get to this, from March 25, 2020:

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Israels-NEMA-to-work-with-FEMA-in-the-fight-against-coronavirus-622315

====

Here’s the relevant snippet:

Israel’s National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) and its American Counterpart, FEMA, have established a cooperation mechanism to fight the coronavirus pandemic, Israel’s Defense Ministry announced on Wednesday.
According to a statement released by the defense ministry, the two agencies held their first joint discussion on Tuesday night with representatives of the health ministries of both countries, the National Security Council (NSC), US Department of Homeland Security and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 
The discussion, which was part of the international cooperation initiative led by NEMA, was led by the Head of the Cooperation and Assistance Unit in NEMA, Mr. Kobi Wimisberg, Director of the International Department of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Ashi Shalmon, and the Head of the Foreign Policy Department in the NSC, Dr. Avner Golov. 

====

How about that.

Barely a year ago, FEMA and Israel’s NEMA (which I’d never even heard about, before this article) make an agreement to start ‘working together’ to ‘fight Coronavirus’.

In Meron this year, a whole bunch of people are mass murdered in the name of ‘Coronavirus regulations’ put in place by the Ministry of Health, and signed off on by Yuli Edelstein, Aryeh Deri, Amir Ohana, Nachman Ash, and of course, Benjamin Netanyahu.

All year, the State of Israel has been actively targeting the chareidi community in Israel as being ‘disease spreaders’ and ‘vectors of infection’, and openly demonising them in the press, and treating Chareidim as second-class citizens – also in the name of ‘fighting Coronavirus’.

After months of closing down every venue, every gathering, every religious place, the State of Israel suddenly decides to open up Meron for L’ag B’omer, with absolutely no limitations on the numbers of people attending.

And then, after a day replete with awful police brutality and life-threatening fences and over-crowding, 45 people ‘coincidentally’ die when the one remaining exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex is shut down by the police, following ‘orders from above.’

Then very soon after, we’re all bounced into another new ‘war’ to take our mind off investigating who gave those orders, and what really happened in Meron.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find the official press release put out by Israel’s Ministry of Religious Affairs, about L’ag B’omer this year.

There, you’ll learn that the government was apparently expecting half a million people to attend the Meron festivities this year.

Way more than the 200,000 who actually tried to attend.

Here’s another snippet from that press release:

Seven government ministries are partners in preparing the celebration. 

This year, the Ministry of Religious Affairs will budget the celebration with about NIS 15.5 million, the Ministry of Internal Security, which took care of the influx of about 5,000 police officers who will secure the many immigrants. The police are equipped with modern technology.

The Ministry of Transportation, which allocates about 4,000 buses, which will make about 7,000 round trips….

The Ministries of Health and Justice were also partners in the discussions around the revelry.

====

Let’s just head back to the ‘guidelines‘ for Meron that were put out by Nachman Ash, on April 29th, 2021 – the same day this press release came out on the website of the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

Translated snippet, below:

1. Transport only or by shuttles from the parking lots. There will be no restriction on getting to the mountain area – anyone who wants to get there can do so.

2. Across the mountain, the existing crowd restrictions will apply – 20 people in a closed space and 100 people in an open area.

3. It was agreed that the lighting area would be conducted according to a special layout for the “tav yarok” (‘green passports’):

A. The organized ascent to the fires will be made by buses, which can only be used by those with a “green passport”, i.e. those who will be vaccinated and recovered, or with negative PCR tests up to 72 hours before the event, as coordinated by the Holy Places Administration and the Israel Police.

B. There will be no more than 3,000 people next to each lighting.

C. There will be three lightings in parallel – for a total of up to 9000 people at one go.

D. There will be up to 4 rounds of lighting.

E.  It was agreed and clarified that the “green passport” will not be checked at the entrance to the event.

====

How many glaring contradictions can 10 sentences of text contain?

On the one hand, they said:

“There will be no restriction on getting to the mountain area – anyone who wants to get there can do so.”

And the government was clearly expected half a million people to show up, as evidenced by the news release on the Ministry of Religious Affairs’ website.

But, with the next breath, they said:

“[E]xisting crowd restrictions will apply – 20 people in a closed space and 100 people in an open area” – which was clearly totally unrealistic and unworkable, right from the start.

====

Next, they said that people would only be allowed to board the buses to come to Meron, and to attend a bonfire, if they could show a ‘green passport’.

But then they contradicted themselves again by saying:

“The “green passport” will not be checked at the entrance to the event.”

And also, even having just 3,000 people per bonfire clearly contravened the Health Ministry’s own guidelines that shouldn’t be more than “100 people in an open area.”

====

This ‘agreement’ for Meron was a total farce.

It was designed to publicise a bunch of rules that were totally unrealistic, to guarantee that ‘when things went wrong’, it would be so easy to point the finger at the pilgrims for ‘not following the rules’.

And in the meantime, the authorities went all out to make sure L’ag B’omer was going to teach the chareidim a lesson they’d never forget, this year in Meron.

====

Let’s stop there.

I know this isn’t one of my more polished posts -I’m feeling pretty weird today, honestly, and that’s reflecting in my writing.

But I thought it was important to get more of this information out there, including the link between Israel’s ‘NEMA’, and the USA’s ‘FEMA’, and how that may also have something to do with what happened at Meron this year.

I’m sure there is much more that could be said about all this, but I’m going to leave it here for now.

The next post will focus on a spiritual response to Meron.

If more information surfaces in the meantime, I will share it with you, BH, and I will also try to write a conclusions post, to make it easier for readers to share the key facts we’ve discovered over the last 2 weeks.

But otherwise, I’m done for now.

====

UPDATE:

More on NEMA – that quasi-secret Ministry of Defense organisation in Israel that has been working with FEMA to implement ‘Coronavirus directives’ on our unsuspecting population.

Here is NEMA’s official description, nested on the MoD website HERE:

The National Emergency Authority (NEMA) is tasked with coordinating and integrating all of the organizations responsible for home-front defense during emergency scenarios. The authority was established in December 2007, as a product of the lessons learned during the Second Lebanon War.  

NEMA is an important tool that enables the Minister of Defense to manage and coordinate responses to emergency situations in the civil sphere. 

NEMA accomplishes the aforementioned by planning, coordinating, and directing all national and local authorities dealing with preparation for emergency scenarios, and educating civilians on the subject.

  NEMA also works to maintain national resilience and functional continuity throughout crises and emergencies.

====

NEMA reports to the Minister of Defense in Israel.

Who is the Minister of Defense in Israel right now?

Benny Gantz.

Here’s who is currently heading up NEMA, as of October 2020:

Defense Minister Benny Gantz appointed Brig.-Gen. (res.) Yoram Laredo head of the National Emergency Management Authority on Thursday. The appointment was made after the roll was filled by an interim head for the past eight months.

Laredo previously served as the head of the Home Front Command and was recently released from the IDF.

====

Here he is, talking about ‘Covid preparedness’ back in March 2020 – which is weird, as he was apparently only appointed head of NEMA six months later:

Take a look from about minute 7 onwards.

====

I would love to know just how involved ‘NEMA’, and its officials were, in planning this year’s ‘celebration’ in Meron.

Especially as the police and Magen Dovid Adam, and other organisations apparently operating under the NEMA remit were busy practising ‘war games’ in Meron the whole week before, where they were practising for grandstands to collapse…and for massive fires to break out… and for people to ‘die’ in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways.

And of course, we see how USEFUL all that ‘preparation’ was on the night, when it came to saving lives, getting people off the site and enabling ambulances to have a good route of access to evacuate the dead and injured.

====

This comes from Ha’aretz:

Earlier in the week the police conducted war games simulating the Meron celebrations, with results that were similar to what actually transpired a few days later. The worst thing is that it shouldn’t have been a surprise.

Ha’aretz journalists, please rest assured that the authorities weren’t surprised AT ALL by what happened here.

Except that maybe, it didn’t kill anywhere near as many people as they’d hoped, because of a series of open miracles.

====

Remember, NEMA in Israel is working hand-in-hand with FEMA in the USA.

There is way more going on here, than meets the eye, and we’re starting to ‘surface’ the real people who are in control here.

And they aren’t ‘nice’.

At all.

====

UPDATE #2:

More information on the subject of ‘who owns Meron’.

The following comes from Pini Dunner’s site, HERE:

BTW, I don’t agree with his conclusions at to why the atrocity in Meron occurred.

As usual, it’s ‘all or nothing’ thinking that is has to either be the secular State or the religious authorities who are 100% to blame. All parties share some of the responsibility for what happened in Meron, but the split is more like 95% secular State to 5% ‘religious authorities.

But Pini does bring a lot of useful historical background and information in his post:

The vexed question of who “owns” Meron, and specifically the tomb itself, is at the root of the problems that led to the tragedy last week.

During the dying embers of Ottoman rule in the late nineteenth-century, control of Meron was officially put into the hands of the Sephardic community of Safed under the auspices of something called a hekdesh, which translates roughly as “non-profit” or “endowment”.

Even at that time ownership was already disputed, and some elements of the area were designated in the name of another hekdesh – the Ashkenazi community of Safed. Over time, these two groups split into four separate entities: two Sephardic and two Ashkenazi.

After the establishment of the State of Israel… government authorities chose to let things remain as they were.

Since then, various attempts have been made by Israel’s Ministry of Religious Affairs and local civic authorities to upgrade the facilities so that Meron could accommodate the ever-increasing numbers of pilgrims on Lag Ba’omer, but the competing interests refused to agree to any major structural work.

[Rivka note: it’s not that black and white. Yair Lapid launched an attempt to take over governance of Meron when he was involved in his all-out war against the Torah world. It’s little wonder that his initiative wasn’t trusted by the religious community.]

====

Last Summer the Va’adat Hachamisha, which is made up of representatives of each hekdesh, along with Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, who is Israel’s official rabbi of the Western Wall and other Jewish holy sites in Israel, announced that a lawyer, Eli Freund of Haifa, was taking over as the new CEO of the Meron shrine.

But according to a senior local resident who I spoke to, Freund has rarely visited Meron, and his impact on the site has been non-existent. Rabbi Rabinovich is also unable to impose decisions on the site, even though he is chairman of the committee, as… none of the competing “owners” recognizes his authority, nor that of the Israeli government.

One of the two Ashkenazi groups is headed by Rabbi Avrohom Frohlich – the former proprietor of a Judaica auction house in Jerusalem who closely associates himself with the Brisk community in Jerusalem, a group that utterly rejects the State of Israel’s legitimacy…

He is closely followed in his inflexibility and refusal to consider any changes to Meron’s infrastructure by his Ashkenazi counterpart, Rabbi Mordechai Dov Hacohen Kaplan, son of Safed’s late chief rabbi, Rabbi Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan;

Rabbi Dovid Derli of Tiberias, who heads one of the two Sephardic endowments; and Rabbi Matityahu Shrem, the head of the other Sephardic hekdesh, who lives in Rechasim, a neighborhood adjacent to Kfar Hasidim.

====

All this segues in with many of the things I’ve been researching here on the blog over the last few months, about the ‘interesting people’ in our midst.

BH, we’ll come back to this soon.

====

UPDATE #3:

Here’s an interview with R’ Avraham Frohlich, where he explains at least some of the reasons why the Meron grave has not been properly refurbished. It’s really worth reading the whole thing:

https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/israel-news/48584/rav-froehlich-speaks-out-on-meron-violence.html

In short, he’s saying the State of Israel doesn’t respect the sanctity of the site, doesn’t appreciate that it’s actually a Jewish graveyard, and that they have no faith in the secular architects the State of Israel is trying to foist on them.

This interview is from 2010.

Snippet below:

We agreed to what must be done, with caution and care.

We are asking two things. The professional committee; the architects, engineers and contractors, and by the way, we no longer trust the present architect so we are asking for an engineer, someone the chareidi community trusts, someone who exhibits an understanding for the religious sensibilities involved. He will be the person on whom we rely to understand what is going on.

====

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.

TBC

Just a quick post, to ‘update’ you on the situation in my bit of Jerusalem.

The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and things are eerily quiet where I live, in a ‘mixed’ community right next to the Old City.

This morning at around 6:30am, I thought I heard a group of protesters, or something, close by, but I couldn’t make out if they were chanting in Hebrew or Arabic, and I didn’t have the sense of ‘panic’ I get when something feels off.

Yesterday, my husband went to work with no problems.

I went to the supermarket with no problems.

My kids went all over the place visiting friends etc with no problems.

I know, that’s not at all the picture you are being painted by the media, but that is my first hand experience, currently of Jerusalem.

====

I know people are dying in other parts of the country.

Or rather, I should say I think I know that, because the level of lies and media manipulation going on has ratcheted up so high, the last few weeks, I literally trust NOTHING I see in the media anymore, unless I can verify it personally.

There are so many things setting the BS-O-meter off about what’s going on right now, I don’t know where to start in trying to unpick it all to see what’s true and what isn’t.

So, I’m basically ignoring ‘the matzav’ at the moment, while I focus on trying to finish up my investigation into what really happened in Meron.

Which is taking a lot of effort, all by itself.

====

I will continue to update you with my own personal experiences of life in Jerusalem, in the meantime.

If I see something with my own eyes, or speak to real people about their real experiences, I will share that.

But the reason I’m staying mostly quiet about ‘the matzav’ is because so much of it feels like ‘fake news’ – but I haven’t got the ability to sort out the truth from the lies.

BH, God will finally rescue us from all this madness, and all these evil people, intent on plunging the world into more unnecessary violence, wars and human suffering.
