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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

(More on that a little later.)

Nothing.

Everything looked sturdy, normal, solid.

====

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

That just didn’t seem appropriate.

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

But I understood him.

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

The police would never do something like that!!! 

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

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

====

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

There was a barrier here, my friend.

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

Why are you running away?! 

One of the teens called out after him.

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

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

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

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

====

At that point, I’d finished my tehillim.

And the camera guy had retrieved his tripod.

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

The group didn’t like that question.

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

Then, an Arab cleaner came up and told him:

Leave them alone, God will deal with them.

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

====

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

I mean, the nerve of the guy.

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

I mean, c’mon!

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is no-one here to talk to.

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

Of course, they didn’t.

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

What was the man thinking?

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

Tut tut.

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

There is blood in the water now.

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

It’s just a matter of time.

====

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

And why?

====

UPDATE:

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

====

Snippet:

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

====

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

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

Google translated snippet:

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

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

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

    The more I think about it, I think it was a chemical weapons attack. What else could explain people suddenly not feeling well in a closed space? Another question would be why is the gov going after Toldot Aharon? What do they know that the gov doesnt want others to know?

    The Zionists were and always will be murderers. From their inception through the Holocaust (which they also had a hand) through the the wars in Eretz Yisroel until this day, MURDERERS. AMALEK. The Brisker Rov is quoted as saying, “the Zionists are suspect of murder” this is a Psak which holds true to this day. True Haredim know this.
    You’re articles are not needed to convince them of what happened. Nor will your articles convince hardcore Hilonim (who don’t care). But… maybe… you’ll be able to show one simple confused Jew who they really are.

    Wow, Rivka…. I am in shock and in tears, realizing the utter depravity and evil of these monsters. Unbelievable. What an amazing Kiddush Hashem you are doing here: I am in awe… as I had a feeling, you are going to be the one revealing the truth here – a follow-up on your books about the Rav, more truth bombs. It’s good. Thank you so much for your inspiration, insight to do this, and your hard work. It’s all coming together, isn’t it. Kol Hakavod.

    When I watched the short movie of your previous post, it reminded me of the siege of Yerushalayim before the Churban: what caught my attention was the pincer attack: terrorists/policemen forces closing in on the Toldot Aharon compound, closing in on the Haredim deep down in the bottom, from all sides, as in a corral – I would say, almost as in a modern Shechitah factory, complete with the chute for the “animals”

    And then what were they going to do in there that didn’t happen: a fire, a chemical attack, mass shootings like in Babi Yar? What was that explosion people reported? In the long video of the event I did not hear an explosion; did you?

    Jesse’s thought, that the bast.rds used a chemical weapon or something of that sort, would not surprise me one bit. Nowadays they don’t even need a chemical weapon: how about something much more covert, such as a directed 5G attack? Nobody would even suspect such a thing. Did you see a 5G tower in the area, or 5G antennae on the electric poles and/or lights there by any chance?

    5G was developed as a military bioweapon, and it can make people very sick.

    I know for a fact that Israel has the capability to use it: How do I know? Well, last year or so, after reporting intense EMF radiation around the Mearah ( which I had measured with my Cornet Radmeter because I experienced a sudden severe headache there, and found camouflaged 5G antennae on the fake palm tree outside) I was told by the Hevron police that it was the army’s and that the police couldn’t do anything about it. So why not use such a weapon on their internal enemies, the Jews as usual??? Just asking….
