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.”

  1. Plutogirl says:

    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.

The tendency to rely on human beings rather than G-d has been our curse throughout the centuries.

“Who is wise? One who learns from each person” (Pirkei Avot 4:1)

In Judaism, to be without questions is a sign not of faith, but of lack of depth.

“I’ll try to help as we can,” said Mr. Goodman, “but we already made a special appeal this year. Let me see what other funds we have. I’ll be in touch with you in a day or two.”

Rashi is bothered by the expression Hashem used: “the Jews need only travel.”

Question: Why do we start counting sefirat ha’omer in chutz la’aretz on the second night of Pesach when the omer in the times of the Beit Hamikdash was cut on Chol HaMoed?

A few background principles regarding the prohibitions of chametz mixtures on Pesach may provide some shopping guidance.

According to the Rambam, the k’nas applies to any chametz on Pesach with which one could, in theory, transgress the aveirah – even if no transgression actually occurred.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

We have windows of history, of Yom Tovim, but the dust continues to obscure our vision.

On Shabbos Zachor the Torah commands us to “Remember what Amalek did to you.”

We should invite divorced people into our homes for Shabbas and Yom tov.

I attended the recent Shabboton for frum divorced people and listened to your talk. You gave me hope to go on. I was very despondent when I came and went home considerably more upbeat. It was all due to your focus on “being a blessing.”

One can sigh with relief when the divorce is finalized but the heart is full and it aches with pain. Yes, there were conflicts. Yes, there was a cold war that made for a frigid atmosphere in the home. But loneliness is a very difficult thing to bear.

My ex despises me and is bent on destroying me. He has done everything to torture me.

The Torah tells us that ancient Egypt had 49 levels of contaminating impurities and Hashem wanted us out before the fiftieth would become viral.
