Like The Voice of Moshiach at the Gates of Yerushalayim
Ouri, Ouri - Like a Lion in Judah
“JERUSALEM IS NOT AN ILLEGAL OUTPOST."
The fact that we are discussing concessions on Jerusalem is a tragedy in and of itself.”
So says Uri, The Mayor of Yerushalayim, thundering, in defiance of Olmert’s freeze on building even in Yerushalayim. [in Mishpacha Magazine and the English Yated]
Tehillim 57 [in part]
3 I will cry unto God Most high; unto God that accomplisheth it for me.
4 He will send from heaven, and save me, when he that would swallow me up taunteth; Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
5 My soul is among lions, I do lie down among them that are aflame;
even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
9 Awake, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn.
10 I will give thanks unto Thee, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.
11 For Thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and Thy truth unto the skies.
12 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; Thy glory be above all the earth.
An Announcement from Gedolei Yisroel In Eretz Yisroel
February 1, 2008
TO OUR FELLOW JEWS LIVING IN ERETZ YISROEL
AND TO JEWISH COMMUNITIES EVERYWHERE:
The difficult situation of the Jewish community in Eretz Yisroel fills us with trepidation. No one knows what the new day will bring. In our sins, we see the fulfillment of the posuk “Behold Your enemies are in uproar and those who hate You have raised their head. Against Your nation they deviously plot, and take counsel against those whom You protect.” Our eyes are lifted in prayer to the Creator, that all of the goings-on in the world turn for the good.
From both within and without the crisis mounts. The danger threatens both body and soul. During these days, items are on agendas that could place entire populations of Jews into grave danger, G-d forbid – including those in the Holy City of Yerushalayim. Further, there are constant attempts to undermine the foundations of pure chinuch in Eretz Yisroel and to cause harm to the holiness of Klal Yisroel. Therefore it is incumbent on us to fortify ourselves with Torah, tefilla and good deeds, to awaken the mercy of Heaven.
Dear brethren, awaken and inspire yourselves to pour out prayer before the Creator of the world, that He have pity and protect His nation from all who stand up against us, that He abolish the intentions of those who hate us and nullify the plottings of our enemies, and that the eyes of the misguided be opened to the realization that their path is foolishness and they should leave Hashem’s nation to guard its path and faith, without hindrance or interference.
We therefore call on members of Hashem’s holy nation in all the places they reside, men, women and children, to gather in tefilla on Tuesday, Erev Rosh Chodesh Adar Rishon, 5768, to recite chapters of Tehillim and the order of Yom Kippur Koton.
May Hashem hear our pleas, and turn His face to us so that we may be saved with a permanent salvation soon. And let us merit to see, quickly, the redemption of Yisroel, and gaze upon the building of the Beis HaMikdosh, quickly in our days, omein.
