On Monday. October 14, thirteen Jews were arrested on Temple Mount for prayer.
They were released later the same day by a judge who found them in violation of no known law.
And when they try to pray again, they will be arrested again by the same cops.
This will go on until the rest of us join them.
Folks, redemption is not up to God – He’s already in favor. It’s the rest of us who just need to want to be redeemed. It’s not the goyim, it’s not the Arabs, it’s not the cops.
Do you think the funny rabbis in the video are pathetic? You bet they are. But if there were 100 like them, and then 1,000, and then 10,000 – who could chase us away?
90 percent of redemption is showing up.
