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

***Updates below***

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

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

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

Here’s a snippet:

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

====

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

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

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

Like this:

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

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

====

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

But now, we have to start asking ourselves why?

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

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

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

====

Let’s start with this.

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

 

====

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

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

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

====

But there’s more.

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

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

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

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

====

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

====

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

But there’s still more.

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

====

====

Let’s zoom in on that tape, shall we?

====

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

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

But there is still more.

====

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

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

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

====

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

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

====

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

Hashem loves us so much.

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

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

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

And we aren’t done unpicking this yet.

====

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

So we’ll see what happens next.

UPDATE:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

Things are starting to fall apart, for the government and the MSM that serve them.

Rebbe Nachman talks about how the Tzaddik is a ‘bone in the throat’ of the sitra achra, that then causes it to ‘throw up’ all the good it swallowed from the beginning of time.

We have the zchut of starting to see that happen, in front of our faces.

In the merit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, and the 45 murdered martyrs who were killed this L’ag B’Omer, in Meron.

====

One of my friends sent me a photo copy of a page in Aramaic from the ‘Idra Rabba’.

This explanation of what that it comes from Zissel:

TheIdraRabbais a section of the Zohar inserted into Parshas Naso where Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai gathers nine of his students to reveal Kabbalistic mysteries he had refrained from teaching until then. During the Idra three of the Sages passed away including Rabbi Yossi ben Yackov who was then buried at this location.

====

I’m reproducing it here, then I’ll explain why it’s so significant:

Idra rabba 45 martyrs

====

The underlined parts speak of 45 holy souls who are killed on L’ag B’omer.

This was written 2,000 years ago.

I don’t understand Aramaic, so I’m trying to find someone to translate the whole page, but I was told that it also explains that these 45 souls are actually ‘soul sparks’ of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai himself.

I’ll confirm or amend this statement, once I find someone to translate it, BH.

But knowing this information already started to reassure me – greatly! – that there is a much bigger, greater, good plan going on here, behind the scenes, to dismantle the evil in the world.

====

The True Tzaddikim are the ‘bones’ in the throat of the sitra achra.

And the 45 holy souls who were killed al kiddush Hashem in Meron this year mark the turning point, where all the lies are going to crumble away, all the bad people are going to start exposing each other, and destroying themselves in the process – and revealed good is finally going to reign, both here and in Israel.

====

Over on the RavBerland.com site, they also had an excerpt of a shiur given over by the Rav on April 11, 2021 – almost 3 weeks ago – where he explained this:

There was a decree of annihilation – and Rabbi Shimon saved us

Here’s a snippet:

Now, I read about the Pressburg Yeshiva, that 60 years ago a bus turned over on the return from Meron [on L’ag B’omer], on the Rosh Pina road, on the bends, on the turns.

And the Rosh Yeshiva and the mashgiach were killed, and another 40 students were seriously wounded.

The Rosh Yeshiva and the mashgiach ascended straight to Gan Eden….

….In the merit of Rabbi Shimon, all the gezeirot (negative decrees) will be cancelled now.

There was a decree that all of Am Yisrael would be wiped out.

====

That excerpt comes from a much longer shiur that I actually read on Shabbat.

BH, more of it will be translated, because the Rav was talking about a horrible decree that couldn’t be spoken about, and how it’s a greater ‘sin’ to run over a cat than it is to crush a human being to death, and a bunch more ‘clues’ that clearly showed he knew what was coming down the pipe.

But the point is: all this terrible loss of life in Meron is already starting to turn around for the good.

How do I know that?

Well, I can see the strange stories that are starting to appear in the MSM about what happened in Meron, and I can smell the government’s fear in the air.

Here’s a couple of examples:

====

Exhibit 1:

Government, police planning to blame Supreme Court for Meron disaster

Here’s a snippet:

Officials working in the Ministry of Internal Security have apparently already consulted with the Ministry’s legal adviser and are planning to shift blame toward the Supreme Court, which prevented, they allege, the then-Finance Minister in 2013, Yair Lapid, from wresting control of the Meron holy site from the religious bodies supposedly in control of it….

Ministry officials are not the only people in fear of what an inquiry might reveal. 

Mako writes that police officers involved in the disaster are already taking legal advice and gathering evidence with the aim of absolving themselves of all guilt. Mako suggests that the various other bodies involved in the management of the site are likely following suit.

Meanwhile, internal police inquiries as well as the Police Investigations Department (PID) are refraining from questioning those officers who were present at the scene.

So far, no permission has been given to order the officers to give testimony, apparently because the police are waiting to see if an independent commission of inquiry will be established…

====

Gotta love the justice in Israel!!!

They are only going to ask the policemen who deliberately blocked the exits in Meron to testify if they know an independent commission of inquiry will be established.

But the point is this:

Rabbi Nachman told us that at the end of days, the demonic, satanic ‘talkers’ take each other out.

They launch an all-out war against each other, and that is finally how they disappear off the face of the earth, and revealed good starts to rule.

We are seeing that happen in front of our faces – and it’s not going to be pretty.

====

Exhibit 2:

Another piece of so-obviously-fake-news from the Yeshiva World News website, that would be hilarious – except that it’s trying to cover-up how 45 holy Jews were deliberately murdered in Meron.

Here’s the ridiculous story the YWN site is now spinning, on behalf of the anti-Torah government and police in Israel:

A man collapsed after suffering an apparent heart attack. Participants who saw this, screamed for help from the police and from the medical teams who were present. They attempted to pick up the man while at the same time they stopped the masses from coming down the passageway.

This is what caused the bottleneck and the eventual collapsing wave of the people trampling one another to death.

According to these same eye-witness reports, the police were attempting to stop the throngs of people from trampling the man who had collapsed and those trying to help him and for that reason they closed part of the passageway.

This version of events makes a lot of sense with regard to how things developed and how such a stampede was possible while all of the barriers collapsed.

====

Is there anyone – ANYONE – in the whole world, who can read this story and believe it for even a second?

Surely, even YWN readers will have to balk at accepting that ‘this version of events makes a lot of sense’.

There were no reports made of anyone having a heart attack.

There is no evidence of that from the livestream video that you can see below (Yakov – is it possible to re-copy a section of this to Brighteon too, to stop this crucial evidence of what was really going on in the Toldos Aharon compound from being ‘disappeared’?).

====

The crucial section starts around 3hrs 37 minutes, and continues on for the next half an hour or so.

It shows there was no stampede.

There was no ‘terrible overcrowding’ in the Toldos Aharon compound- no more than any other year, when five times as many people are in Meron – and that people have space to move around and to dance.

And it also shows NO-ONE HAVING A HEART ATTACK ON THE STANDS.

===

Do you see what the YWN story did?

It took the blame off the police, and put it on the chareidim who were supposedly ‘blocking the passage’ by trying to help the mythical-man-with-the-heart-attack.

Those wonderful police!!!

They only shut all the exits down in the death-trap tunnel they deliberately constructed as a crushing bottle-neck leading out of the Toldos Aharon complex to stop that poor (pretend…) man with a heart attack from being crushed!!!

That makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

====

But all this is actually positive.

The lies being told now are so very big, you would literally need to be a brain-dead, lobotomised, soul-less ghoul of a person to believe them.

And Baruch Hashem – that’s not the real Am Yisrael.

====

Yesterday, my kid showed me a clip of an Israeli football player scoring a goal, then turning to the camera to make a ’45’ sign with his hands, and then to point at the heavens and make a ‘pray for them’ sign.

That guy wasn’t wearing a kippa.

He’s not ‘religious’.

But what happened in Meron is bringing the real Jewish ‘good’ out of so many people, so many neshamas, at a fundamental level, and starting to bring more and more of us together again.

From all background. Across all divisions. Breaking down all fake ‘political’ and ‘religious’ divides.

Am Yisrael Chai v’Kayam!!!

And the rule of evil is on its last legs.

====

UPDATE:

I went back up to Meron today, with my camera, to try and pin more of the facts of what went on down, and BH I will do a big write up with pictures and maps and even drone footage (thanks Ch!) to show exactly where the fatal ‘crush’ happened.

While I was there, there were a lot of conflicting stories and accounts that I was overhearing, but all were in agreement that there was a barrier put up by the police, and that is what led to people dying.

But then, the details get fuzzy again.

I will BH pin down what is definite tomorrow, BH.

====

Now, re the ‘Idra Rabba’ quote, there are a few comments below that say it has nothing to do with the 45 martyrs in Meron, and that they are not soul-sparks of Rabbi Shimon.

Each person is very welcome to have their own opinion about this.

Personally, I’m coming from a place that says that EVERYTHING is a message from Hashem, so if a recording went viral making that connection between this Idra Rabba and what just happened in Meron on L’Ag B’Omer, that it still some sort of ‘message’ from Hashem – and still gives comfort.

At least, to me.

But people are entitled to live in a world where everything is apparently ‘random’, and there are no hidden messages from Hashem, and we can’t understand anything about how He’s governing the world, so we just have to sit here and wait for the next ‘unknowable, unstoppable, inexplainable’ blow to fall.

Personally, that sounds like a really horrible way to live life, but each person can choose their own path.

====

UPDATE 2: On this Idra Rabba:

Chaim posted the following up in the comments section below, which captures a lot of what I felt but didn’t have the words to express, together with more pertinent information:

==

One thing people need to understand about the Zohar is that it’s NOT PSHAT. You don’t just translate it and think you understood it.

Rav Kaduri used to read the entire Idra Rabba on Shabbat and say he had just reviewed the entire Kabbalah, because everything is included in it. The whole order of the formation of the worlds is described in great detail in the Idra Rabba, and it takes someone of that level to really understand what is being conveyed. Sometimes concepts that appear bad are in fact good, like the evil Lavan alluding to the extremely exalted level of the Lavnunit which Yaakov Avinu was zoche to receive.

I spoke with a serious (and real) Rabbi who learns and teaches Kabbalah (not, of course, on the level of Rav Kaduri but still) about the whole Meron incident.

He said that at first this passage might appear disconnected. However, since this episode with the 45 soldiers happened at the END of the Idra, this yinian is directly related to the end of the Seder Hishtalshelut and the end of the Tikkunim of the worlds.

The 45 holy Jewish men, according to this Rabbi, did something akin to what the 10 martyrs did (not on their level, of course), which is elevating Mayim Nukvin in order to prevent a much greater catastrophe.

He said, it was supposed to have many more dead, but because of the holiness of the day, the fact they were in Meron, and that they were holy, accepting the divine decree, they averted it.

This goes in line with the fact that one of the most fundamental rules of Kabbalah is that two concepts that have equal gematria are certainly connected, even more so since they appear on the same day (Lag Baomer and the Daily Zohar).

So the snippet brought here is ENTIRELY RELATED to what we are experiencing here at the END of times. The true meaning, however, we can’t know yet.

Also, 45 is Gematria Gimel Aleph Vav Lamed Heh = Geulah.

====

Next, another commentator shared a first hand video of someone who was there, explaining what he say in English.

It’s quiet audio, so pretty hard to hear, but still very worth the effort.

====

If anyone has an email for him, or phone number, can you please let me have it via the contact form here?

I want to double-check a few things.

BH, the truth of what really happened will come out.

One thing the eye-witness said which I hadn’t thought of is that even though the overall numbers were much lower than usual, there were more people there earlier, because L’Ag B’Omer fell on a Thursday night, leading into Shabbat.

Another thing he said is that there WAS terrible overcrowding in the Toldos Aharon compound – although it doesn’t look like that on the livestream, posted above.

So, I want to try to check a few more of these details out in depth.

Tov, tomorrow I will post up the pictures and maps, so we will hopefully all have a better idea of what actually happened, and what really caused it.
