Moshiach will come in the middle - Video link and translation

Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, former Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel says (May 16 video here, hebrew)...

"Today we are counting the Omer, and as we said there is a difference of halachic opinion. Moshiach will come in the middle [of the Omer period] and then we will ask him: 'What do we say about [this mitzvah]? Is it a biblical mitzvah, or just a mitzvah?'

"Why? Moshiach is coming, the Holy Temple is coming -- it's a biblical mitzvah [implying that we will perform the mitzvah of waving the Omer as described in the Torah]. Or, he will tell us: 'No, you needed to bring the Omer [offering] from the beginning [of the seven weeks in order to fulfill the biblical mitzvah], not now.'

Good–then we have a question to ask the Moshiach, which should be speedily in the near future, Amen!"
