Heating Up

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day) has not even ended and already the rhetoric is already heating up...

(Jpost) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (friend of the Jews of New York) speaking on Al Jazeera...

"We want to see a stop to settlement construction, additions, natural growth - any kind of settlement activity," declared Clinton in some of the Obama administration's clearest comments to date on what it expects from Israel.

Note to Jews and friends of the Jewish people world-wide, according to the US almost ALL of Jerusalem is a settlement. Just pull up Google Maps and note the 1949 Armistice Line still there. EVERYTHING on the other side, per the US State Department, is a settlement. This includes...

The old city, French Hill, Ramot, Ramat Shlomo, 1/2 of Maale Dafne, well basically most of the city!

Even the secular Israelis and the Israeli government is being pushed against the wall. While there are those in Israeli society that have begged the US to "push Israel into a peace settlement", even they balk as increasingly demands move from reasonable to less possible to impossible - not even taking into account Torah shel Moshe and the inheritance of Eretz Yisroel.

Israel will be left to trust in Hashem and His Torah, or trust in the empty promises of Obama and the security of the UN.

No one looks forward to a test of faith. Yet there's more simple faith among the common Jew in Israel than one might think. Outside of Israel there's a pretty strong dividing line between Jews with emunah and those without - mostly along the orthodox/non-orthodox border. But in Israel emunah is widespread, the simple Jew exists and is not a rare find. There are strong cultural, segmentation and sect divides (charedi, mizrachi, national religious, kibbutznik, settler, etc), but here in Israel emunah crosses all boundaries.

For those of us too complex for simple faith, from too many arguments of the world pressing in on our thoughts, it's time to focus upon works, teachings and thoughts of emunah (faith) in Hashem. For there is no chochma (wisdom) to get out of what's coming, only emunah (faith) in Hashem.

Photo: Iran tests an extended range ground-to-ground missile a day after threatening to wipe Israel out in 11 days. The Obama administration declares this nothing to worry about, that the main concern for the world is whether a Jewish family in Beit El builds a new room on their home for their baby.


  1. Hashem is waiting for us to do T'shuvah! What does it mean to have Emunah ? We'll to start with stop looking at the news and leave the driving up to Hashem we need to have simple faith in the very fact that He runs the world and not Abinajab, or Osama or Obama or any one else! Find a true Tzaddik attach yourself to him and wait and see what the King of all the Earth will do! there is nothing to do but pray and thank and praise Hashem for His overwelming mercy and lovingkindness. that it our job is to show the world what faith is period. so if you are worried or worse scared good turn to Hashem and trust in the fact that everything is from him and all is good everything is for our best and it cant be any better and thank Him as a true sign that you believe in His not our's or their's Chashchah. there are no mistakes in the world and there is certainly nothing new so relax and let the show go on it's going to be a thriller of an action pacted event for sure but the end is one we know, so focus on being a simple kosher Jew and leave the arm chair world ruler stuff up to Hashem this year til next rosh chodesh av is going to be bumpy so just hold on and look for the salvation of your G-d to unfold!

  2. Another great article Akiva. Simple faith in haShem is exactly what is needed and you are correct, that many have it irregardless of their derech. The key is simple faith in haShem, not attaching ones self to another man. Time to break free of the Erev Rav matrix and go straight to the source. This is what He wants and desires. Glad your blogging again. Shabbat Shalom

  3. Exactly 5 years after Rav Kaduri met Mashiach, a descendant of Yishmael, an evil anti-Semite, was elected as the 44th President of the United States. He is the anti-Mashiach, also known as Gog. To verify his identity as Gog his name is secretly encoded in Ezekiel 38 in verses 2 and 3. These verses state: (2) Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, (3) and say, thus says the Lord G-d: Behold I am against you O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

    If you look at the original Hebrew and go to the 9th word of verse 2 and highlight the last letter, and then count 7 letters and highlight that one, and continue to count and highlight each 7th letter until you have 6 letters highlighted you will see the real name of Gog. You can visualize it here:

    (2) בן אדם שים פניך אל גוג ארץ המגוג נשיא ראש משך ותבל והנבא עליו

    (3) ואמרת כה אמר אדני י-ה-ו-ה הנני אליך גוג נשיא ראש משך ותבל

    The coded name consists of the letters aleph, vav, bais, aleph, mem and hay. אובאמה Obama. Why skip 7 letters? What does 7 represent? Seven years ago on 9/11/01 the “end of days began.”

  4. Yes things are heating up, and with that in mind, be sure to check out Nava at Dreaming of Moshiach who has some 'New' news for everyone.

  5. Raphael, Kaduri never met the Mashiach. He was somewhat delusional at that stage of his life. The person whom the Rav met realizes it is not him.
