Closing Our Eyes To The New Haman (Part I)

One need not have great powers of discernment to recognize the painful veracity of these predictions. Consider only the constant and senseless brutal acts of terror – suicide bombers, decapitations, hijackings, missiles, etc.

We are the generation that has been destined to witness the fulfillment of the prophecy given to Hagar, the matriarch of the Arab-Muslim world (Genesis 16: 11-13): “Behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son, and you shall name him Ishmael…and he shall be a wild beast of a man; with his hand against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and over all his brethren shall he dwell…..”

The long arm of Ishmael’s terror has indeed reached every part of the world.

There is yet another amazing prophecy in the Yalkut Shimoni – a midrashic compilation that eerily foretells the events of today and should give us pause:

Rabbi Yitzchok said: The year Melech HaMashiach will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The king of Persia [Iran] will provoke the king of Arabia [Saudi Arabia]; the king of Arabia will go to Edom [the leader of the Christian nations, i.e. the president of the United States] to take counsel and the king of Persia [Ahmadinejad] will threaten to destroy the entire world.

The nations of the world will be outraged and in a panic .They will fall on their faces and experiences pains like birth pangs…. Israel too will be outraged and, in a state of panic, ask, “Where do we go?”

But say unto them, “My children, do not fear, the time of your redemption has come…. And this last redemption shall be different from the first that was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption, you will not experience any further pain or subjugation.” [Yalkut Shimoni, Isaiah 59]

The Klausenberger Rebbe, z”tl, referring to this teaching, said, “Remember these words. They are perhaps not understood now, but in time they will be, and will be a source of strength to our people.”

    There are so many inaccuracies and factual errors in this post that it’s hard to know where to begin to address them.

    First, global warming, extreme weather, dead birds and fish, etc. are not signs from God. They are the results of human-induced climate change through the excessive burning of fossil fuels and other environmentally destructive practices, mostly based on economic profit. It is people who continue to damage our planet through habitat destruction, pollution, CO2 emissions, overfishing, etc. The change in behavior we need is in how we relate to our environment–a recognition that whatever we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves.

    The president of Iran has nowhere near the support Hitler did. His own people rejected him in a recent election, and the only reason he is still in power is the fact that he stole the election.

    Iran has reportedly been “on the verge” of attaining nuclear weapons for more than a decade, yet that goal remains as elusive for the country as ever.

    The Iranians are Persian, not Arab, and therefore are not the descendants of Ishmael.

    The president of the US is NOT “the leader of the Christian nations.” Saying this equals complete disrespect for the principles of pluralism on which the US, a country with no state religion, was founded. The president of the US is the leader of the free world, of industrialized democracies that include secular nations and countries with a huge variety of ethnic and religious groups, including Japan and yes, Israel.

    Referring to current times as the “Roman exile” is ludicrous since Rome has not existed as an empire for several hundred years. There is no “exile”; anyone who wants to live in Israel is free to do so, meaning those who choose to live elsewhere make that choice of their own free will and consider their current countries their homes, not an “exile.”

    The Christian world has nothing to do with Edom, which was a Semitic tribe whose people were used as puppets by Rome in the first century. The tribe is essentially extinct. Most Christians are European and not of Semitic origin. Even the Romans were ethnically not Semitic but Greek.

Question: The Gemara in Berachot states that the sages authored our prayers. Does that mean we didn’t pray beforehand?

When a person feels he can control the destiny of other people, he runs the risk of feeling self-important, significant, and mighty.

Needless to say, it was done and they formed a great relationship as his friend and mentor. He started attending services and volunteered his time all along putting on tefillin.

He took me to a room filled with computer equipment and said, “You pray here for as long as you want.” I couldn’t believe my ears.

On Chol HaMoed some work is prohibited and some is permitted. According to some opinions, the work prohibition is biblical; according to others, it’s rabbinical.

If there is a mitzvas minuy dayanim in the Diaspora, then why is there a difference between Israel and the Diaspora in the number of judges and their distribution?

Judaism is a religion of love but also a religion of justice, for without justice, love corrupts.

Eisenhower understood that motivated men will fight much harder and longer than unmotivated men.

Who does not want to get close to Hashem? Yet, how do we do that?

If we regard pain and suffering as mere coincidence, we will feel no motivation to examine our lives

What does Hashem want of us? That we should protect each other and the awesome heritage He gave us.

Gratitude=Great Attitude. Appreciation is always appropriate.

The two words “thank you” have no time expiration; even if spoken after many years they’re as potent as ever.

Let us shake the heavens. Let us not stop until our boys and all our people are liberated from bondage.

Loving-kindness can cure the anger and bitterness in our poisonous world.
