Yaak wrote: If it is a fight against the Erev Rav (mixed multitude) and those who support them, who will be the Bnei Levi (literally, son's of Levi, the tribe of Levi who did not support the egal, the idol-making)? It's too horrible a thought to think about, so can't a civil war be avoided? Unless someone like a Moshe Rabeinu (Moses our teacher) comes and says "Mi LaHashem Eilai" (He is is for G-d, To Me!), I would rather follow this Pasuk:
Yechezkel 33:11 - Say to them: "As I live, says the L-rd G-d, I do not desire the death of the wicked, but rather, that he should abandon his way and live. Return, return from your evil ways. Why should you die, O house of Israel?"
On the other hand, thirtysix.org says the following:
We must strengthen ourselves for this war, and anyone who does not participate in the battle against the Erev Rav becomes, de facto, a partner with the k'lipah of the Erev Rav, and was better off not being born in the first place. (Kol HaTor, Chapter 2, Section 2, Letter 'bais')
Strong and scary stuff.
Here's my response:
From an Interview with the kabbalist, Harav Yitzchak Kaduri, shlita (world renounced saint, scholar and kabbalist, date of interview unknown)
Harav Kaduri: "These are the days of the Moshiach. Hashem has mercy on the Jewish people and sends them a pure spirit to repent. When there will be many ba'alei teshuvah, salvation will be granted for Israel, when they will do proper teshuvah."
What was the power of Khomeini?
A hard klipa; his name contains the letters of Haman, a hard kipa.
Was Ben Gurion a harmful klipa, too?
Since he is a Jew, there is in him a certain spark.
Both a klipa and a spark...?
Yes, the people who govern today are the souls of the mixed multitude who came out from Egypt. Naturally they have in them a certain holiness. They come before the coming of the Moshiach.
When will Moshiach come?
In few years.
In the coming years, we expect him any day....Until the coming of the Moshiach there will be troubles, there will be a war.
Between whom and whom?
Jews against Jews. What else? Who will overpower them? After all, the current government will not be bent by itself.
Jews will bring down the current government and then the Moshiach will come?
Yes, the Ten Tribes will appear and they will make war. There are also two Moshiachs -- Moshiach ben Yosef will make war, and Moshiach ben Dovid will triumph over the goyim. Through the spirit of his words, the atom will burn itself out.
Will this State exist until the coming of the Moshiach?
The Arabs must be vacated from a number of places.
Is there a danger that the government will topple?
It won't topple.
WIll there be a state until the coming of the Moshiach?
Yes, but they will suffer a few misfortunes.
The Rabbi spoke of the Ten Tribes, where is the Sambatyon?
Hakadosh Baruch Hu concealed them so that they would not suffer from the yoke of the Goyim. Sometimes, they are revealed...they are settled securely in their country until the coming of Moshiach. Increasing the study of [pnimiyus haTorah] is the medicine, we learned this from the teachings of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai.
