Seething !

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

By now everyone has heard of the Jewish family, a rabbi and rebbitzen and their 3 young children – the youngest only 3 months old, that were brutally murdered in their sleep in a West Bank Jewish town in Israel.

I am stunned, horrified, and upset, as is almost everyone in Israel.  The nation as a whole is horrified and angry.  Normal human emotions.

In Judaism, for someone who died as a martyr – who died simply for being Jewish, we write hk”m, meaning (in Hebrew) “Hashem should avenge his (or her or their) blood.”  Revenge, vengeance, is a powerful emotion but also a dangerous emotion.  Those who are ruled by it, particularly “honor cultures” where honor and revenge are more important than life itself, frequently get into true “cycles of violence”.  Life is given over to the pursuit of death.

That is not the Jewish way.  We leave it to Hashem and the heavenly court to take revenge and deal out perfect justice.  We will live, we will build, we will grow, we will use the names of those brutally murdered not in the name of death but in the name of life.  We will enhance their names and memory with charity, with buildings and parks and Jewish homes and good deeds.

BUT we will not forget!  We will not forgive those who did this, nor those who incited this, nor those who financed this.  We point fingers at UNWRA for enabling this, at the EU and the US for funding the organs of incitement, and the international press for dehumanizing JEWS.

Yes, when a Jewish family is lying with their throats slit and tracks back to an Arab town, for CNN to write…

Five members of an Israeli family were killed in the West Bank early Saturday morning in what the Israeli military is calling a ‘terror attack.’

According to a military spokeswoman, an intruder entered the Israeli settlement of Itamar near the northern West Bank city of Nablus around 1 am, made his way into a family home and killed two parents and their three children.

is a straightforward act of dehumanization.  Murderers who brutally slaughter children are just “intruders” (not even Arabs or Palestinians, just intruders).  And dead babies on the floor are just dead meat.

CNN wasn’t alone, the BBC wrote the same thing.  Interestingly, Al Jazeera wrote it (more or less) straight out, “Israeli media says a Palestinian infiltrator stabbed to death a couple and three children in the settlement of Itamar.”

My friends, the press is a powerful tool.  And today in the Western press dead Jews are just dead meat.  As far as they are concerned, wherever they are, they shouldn’t be there anyway.

Here’s peace, here’s the results of “an intruder”, here’s what doesn’t quite qualify as terror.  …I was going to post the pictures or video, but I can’t do it.  The link is here.

Yep. Let me ask you something - what is it going to take for the Jews in the West to wake up and start making plans to leave? What exactly will it take?

Akiva, you wrote: "That is not the Jewish way. We leave it to Hashem and the heavenly court to take revenge and deal out perfect justice."

I'm sorry, but you are absolutely wrong on this. This may be the Jewish way in galut, when we don't have our own state and government. But the rabbis of the Talmud told us that if someone was going to come and kill us we should rise up and kill them first. How many years of proof do we need that the Arabs intend to kill us all!?

Even the goyim are obligated to establish courts of justice and not to simply leave it up to Heaven. The Jewish government in the Jewish State has a right and an obligation to establish justice in this Land.

If the Erev Rav regime won't act, then Hashem will raise up our righteous Mashiach and he will declare a milchemet mitzvah and WIPE THEM ALL OUT!!!

Now is the time to make up your mind whether you are ready to follow him or not, because THAT failure of willingness to do the RIGHT and TORAH thing is what is holding the redemption up!

It's what prevented the geula coming in the time of Rav Kahane, Hy'd, BEFORE THE OSLO YEARS.

Please think it over. :-(

You do not want to know what it will take to get our brothers and sisters to get here....it is too unthinkable and by that time will be too late for most....

AMERICAN JEWS AND THE OTHER DISPERSED OF ISRAEL: FOR G-D'S SAKE, LEAVE AMERICA AND ELSEWHERE NOW IF G-D GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. THE EVIL INSANITY THAT CNN PUTS OUT IS NOW ACCEPTED BY OVER 60% OF YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS. FOR THAT REASON AND OTHERS, THE SO-CALLED ALMIGHTY DOLLAR IS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE! DO NOT GO TO CANADA, AUSTRALIA, OR ANY OTHER PLACE BUT ERETZ YISRAEL, FOR WHEN THE DOLLAR COLLAPSES THE ENTIRE WORLD'S ECONOMY WILL GO DOWN WITH IT. THE PEOPLE OF THE WESTERN WORLD WILL BE LOOKING FOR A SCAPEGOAT. WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THEY WILL COME LOOKING FOR YOU! TRUE, THE ECONOMY HERE WILL ALSO COLLAPSE FOR A WHILE, BUT HERE NO ONE WILL COME HUNTING FOR YOU. AND BESIDES MASHIACH BEN YOSEF WILL SOON FOLLOW SUCH A COLLAPSE, AND UNDER HIS RULE ONE OF THE BENEFITS WILL BE THAT THE ECONOMY HERE WILL LEAD THE WORLD OUT OF THE RESULTING DEPRESSION. WHEN MASHIACH BEN DAVID ARRIVES, THE ENTIRE REMNANT OF JEWS AMONGST THE NATIONS WILL BE INGATHERED, OF COURSE, BUT DO YOU WANT TO BE JUST PART OF A REMNANT?

By the way, do not think that when the world economy improves in the fourth and fifth year of the seven year cycle that you will then be able to simply use that opportunity to make Aliyah. Read Daniel chapter seven for a description of the final what could potentially be three and a half years of Malkhut Edom. Pay particular attention to the bit about the ten horns on the fourth beast and how an eleventh horn comes along and uproots or humbles three of those original ten horns and proclaims himself "king of the Western World". And he will come chasing after the Holy Nation. You have to ask yourself where do you want to be when that happens? Will it be easy to get here during that time period? Will such a Western World government even think of giving credit to MBY for the world's economic expansion? By the way study all of chapter seven. and try to understand it in context.

Akiva, they are just getting warmed up, just wait for what's to come.

Dov, have you noticed the real estate figures in Israel for the last two months? Has the housing bubble finally hit us here? I lived through the one in North America and it was not pretty.

At the very least, the Israeli government should make sure that a palestinian state is not created on our Land. We all saw what happened when Israel pulled out of Gaza. Israel should stand up to all those bullies whether it is the US, the UN, NATO, Russia, the EU, the Quartet, and say that no palestinian state will be created here period. Look at Kaddafi, he stood up against the whole world and won.
