Tisha B’Av – The Children Are Ready. Are You? (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

The “9 days” started yesterday, and I keep seeing “how to survive the 9 days” posts, ways to make the best dairy meals, and how to get past Tisha B’Av in one piece.

The real answer lies in this video: The Children Are Ready.

And they are… we need to get past the Kotel, get past the mindset of 2000 years of exile, and look to the future.

The future is within our grasp…we just need to be ready. Are you?

‘Stop Crying and Let the Children Build the Third Temple’ (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Israel’s Temple Institute, which encourages praying on  the Temple Mount and working to build the Third Temple, has released a video production that shows children taking adults out of synagogue on Tisha B’Av to join them to rebuild the Temple.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel discourages Jews from praying on the Temple Mount because of Halachic issues, while the Temple Institute and many other rabbis have ruled that Jews can ascend to certain areas of the Temple Mount.

Jews around the world are in the traditional Nine Days, the last part of the three-week period of mourning over the destruction of the First and Second Temples, both of which were destroyed in Tisha B’Av, or the Ninth of the Hebrew month of Av that began on Monday.

The Temple Institute has produced a two and a half minute video entitled “The Children are Ready II,” a sequel to last year’s video at this time.

The video shows men sitting on the floor and reciting the Lamentations that are said on Tisha B’Av, while children decide it is time to bring out their tools and get to work to rebuild the Temple instead of only crying over the past.

They march into the synagogue and convince the adults to leave behind their prayer books and come with them.

“Tisha B’Av is not about just mourning; it is about contemplating a world devoid of the Holy Temple, a house of peace and prayer for all nations, and it’s about asking ‘when will the mourning stop?’” said Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute.

“Last year, ‘The Children are Ready’ inadvertently outraged the Arab world with the Egyptian government releasing a formal complaint and rebuttal videos made by Hamas and other Islamist organizations,” the Institute commented Monday.

The Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab world have increasingly published propaganda about Jews trying to take over the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple, and the new video is likely to cause an uproar among Muslims, particularly since the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins this week.

669 Rescues Downed F-16 Pilots (Video)

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

The Air Force has released video of its 669 search and rescue unit that brought to safety the pilot and navigator of an F-16i training jet whose engines stopped in mid-air Sunday, forcing the two-man team to eject themselves and parachute into the sea as the jet broke up in mid-air.

They had managed to send out a distress call before ejecting from the plane and waited for approximately one hour in the sea until the rescue team brought them out of danger.

Sec. Camera Shows Man Throwing Brick at LA Temple (Video)

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Police are searching for a man who vandalized a newly renovated Long Beach temple a few weeks ago, CBSLA.com reported.

The suspect, Caucasian or Hispanic, around 20 to 30 years old and 5-feet-9 to 6-feet tall, was captured on surveillance video throwing a brick at the front window of Temple Israel, at 269 Loma Avenue.

The suspect was wearing light-colored shorts, light-colored jacket with a dark collar, white T-shirt, and dark-colored sandals.

Temple Israel was vandalized back in November, when someone wrote anti-Semitic graffiti on the building.

“They had written the word ‘Nazi’ and drew two swastikas,” said Sharon Amster Brown of Temple Israel.

Reform Rabbi Steven Moskowitz said, “It’s merely a disappointment that there are sad individuals like that who have to express their own views by trying to do harm to others. I would like them to make amends. If they did that, I’d be willing to talk with them about themselves and why they’re so upset and so angry.”

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to contact Jackie Bezart of the Long Beach Police Department at (562) 570-7250.

How Will the Mosque be Removed?

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Jeremy Gimpel jokingly mentioned in a video, one method in which the Mosque on the Temple Mount might be removed.

He said explosives.

The question is, even in jest, was Jeremy right?

With all due respect to this future MK, the answer is no, Jeremy was not right.

There are traditionally two interpretations as to how the Temple will be rebuilt.

The first is the one that, for instance, Neturei Karta firmly believes.

For them, the Temple will suddenly come down from heaven only after the Mashiach arrives (and the land is cleared of the Tsiyoinim), and human beings will have no apparent physical role in the matter.

Following the logic of that theory, the Neturei Karta apparently believe that the mosque will be squashed underneath the suddenly dropping Temple.

I wonder if they’ve bothered to mention that to their terrorist friends over tea.

But the more traditional belief is that we Jews will rebuild the Temple ourselves – and that is actually a far, far greater miracle.

So as I asked in the beginning, “What about the Mosque, which is rather inconveniently sitting where the Temple should be, how will it be removed?”

The simplistic answer is that it will be destroyed.

Jeremy (jokingly) said explosives, while others say wrecking balls and bulldozers.

A tractor working on the Temple Mount, Dec. 24th.

An Arab tractor working on the Temple Mount, Dec. 24th.

But both answers are wrong.

According to common Jewish thought, the Arabs, at the time of the Mashiach will remain in Israel – but they will fully repent.

You see, when the miracle happens that we Jews will be united in our vision that it’s time to rebuild the Temple, the Arabs will be there too, and they will lovingly dismantle the Mosque stone by stone on their own volition, and rebuild it elsewhere.

That is the second part of the miracle of the rebuilding of the Temple.

In the end, the Arabs will want peace, will recognize the spiritual value of the Temple, will recognize what they have to gain by being allies of the Jews instead of enemies, and they will then take the peaceful steps needed to properly honor and worship God.

May the Temple be speedily built in in our lifetime. Amen.

You Saw it Here First: Morsi’s Call for War on Israel

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

The New York Times ran a story on their frontpage today about the video of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi released by MEMRI which documented two separate occasions in which Morsi went on long diatribes calling for violence against Israel.

One part of the video, that the Times does not note, nor did any other publications except this one was that, in one of the videos, Morsi says that if Israel won’t give in to every single one of the Palestinian demands, the Arab countries should wage war against Israel.

The JewishPress.com was the first major English language Jewish/Israel news publication to have the story about the video, when I posted an article about it in this blog almost two weeks ago on Thursday night, January 3rd. (Over the weekend other major Jewish publications like Times of Israel and Ynetnews.com picked up the story).

Thankfully, the New York Times did not try to hide the fact that Morsi’s statements “have revealed sharp anti-Semitic and anti-Western sentiments,” though its report focused on the repercussions on his relationship with President Obama.

I predict that it won’t affect Obama’s relationship with Morsi at all. The video only documented what everyone already knew: that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, and most of Egypt it appears, are preparing for a day when they can resume their role as leader of the Arab world and right all the wrongs Israel has allegedly committed, beginning with its very existence.

Despite the attack on Israel’s embassy, and all the talk in Egypt about “reviewing” amending” the Israel-Egypt peace treaty, the U.S. government, under President Obama, is aiding Egypt in rebuilding its military, by continuing U.S. aid, supporting their quest for international loans, providing grants, cancelling $1 billion in debt as Egypt purchases a $1 billion advanced sub from Germany, and upholds its own sale of F-16s to Egypt.

Unfortunately, Israel is hardly in a position to do anything about U.S. aid to Egypt, because if Israel complains, it will be blamed for the deterioration in both Israel-Egypt relations and U.S.-Egypt relations.

This is the time for American friends of Israel and responsible American leaders to put the brakes on U.S. aid to the Egyptian war machine, before Egypt feels confident enough to wage war, destabilize the region and threaten Israel’s existence once again.

Iran Launches Its Own “Acceptable” Version of YouTube

Monday, December 10th, 2012

In an attempt to meet the demands for online entertainment starved since the official censoring of YouTube in 2009, Iran’s government has created an “acceptable” version of the video site, filled with government-approved content.

“Mehr” – Farsi for “affection”, will allow Iranians to upload their own short videos just like on YouTube, and watch other videos uploaded by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) network.

Google and its related email service, Gmail, have also been made off limits to Iranians since the ascension of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as well as Facebook and Twitter.
