Keeping Score ... A Reminder

This has been posted before, but we need to keep this in mind while watching events unfolding:

"The fall of a nation is preceded by the fall of it’s sar, or administering angel. Once the sar falls, then the nation will fall. This is based on the Zohar (section 2, page 18a - LB) which says that what the Jews saw on the banks of the Red Sea suf was the sar of Egypt dying. Yishmael has 12 sarim (plural for “sar”)."

“Osama bin Ladin, being the biggest danger to the entire world, had the biggest sar of Yishmael. During these past few weeks as we saw so many entrenched arab leaders, heirs of Yishmael, fall, it is apparent that their defending sar has already fallen and they will continue their downfalls. It is a great thing when sarim fall. The Princes of Yishmael are falling. Bin Laden had their biggest sar. The way the Maharal puts it, he does not have to be a direct descendant of Yishmael. Bin Laden is from the culture of Yishmael.”

Rav Moshe Wolfson Shlit’a

'Rome Burns' While Greece in Uproar

Los Alamos UPDATE

20,000 barrels of nuclear waste!

"Potential is high for a major calamity if the fire would reach this area"

EPA TESTING THE AIR. The wildfire that surrounds the nuclear lab in Los Alamos, New Mexico, has grown to at least 61,000 acres amid mounting concerns about what might be in the smoke that's visible from space. Such fear has prompted the Environmental Protection Agency to bring in air monitors, along with a special airplane that checks for radiation levels.

MASS EVACUATION 12,000 residents

Flames from the Las Conchas Fire burn (AP photo)

"Residents downwind of a wildfire that is threatening the nation's premier nuclear-weapons laboratory are worried about the potential of a radioactive smoke plume if the flames reach thousands of barrels of waste stored in above-ground tents. "If it gets to this contamination, it's over -- not just for Los Alamos, but for Santa Fe and all of us in between," said Mai Ting, a resident who lives in the valley below the desert mesas that are home to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Multiculturalism, Shechita, Shariah Law ... A Flood?

Banning Shechita and The Ark of Triumph as Prophecy?

The DUTCH Netherlands has gone ahead and banned the Jewish ritual Halacha of Shechita, without which Jews cannot eat any other slaughtered meat. The Islamists took to the streets demanding "Shariah Law for the Netherlands".

"... Opposition Leader Tony Abbott indicated at the federal Liberal Party council that he was embracing multiculturalism. Meanwhile, last week the Dutch government joined German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in rejecting multiculturalism."

The Netherlands’ parliament has passed a bill banning any slaughter of livestock without stunning, removing an exemption that has long allowed orthodox Dutch Jews and Muslims to butcher animals according to their centuries-old dietary rules. However, the bill must still pass the senate and the government says it may be unenforceable in its current form."

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) is considering a lawsuit: “This law stands in direct opposition to Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights, namely -- the right to freedom of religion. We are now looking into the possibility of fighting this discriminatory law at the European level before it reaches the Dutch Senate for a vote to make it law,"

The Dutch people had a murky relationship with the Jews during WWII. and it seems Liberalism and Anti-Semitism are still alive and growing more pervasive. Countries should think twice about continuing in their wicked ways of persecuting Jews. Maybe "Mother Nature" will be provoked to rebel again, in the form of a flood or tsunami.

The Prophetic Dutchman.

Meanwhile an hour outside of Amsterdam in Dordrecht, after having dreamt of a flood, Johan Huibers began to build his replica of Noah's Ark possibly to save his people (from the flood of his dreams).

This is indeed a prophetic and heroic act.

How did Johan get the idea for such a project? ‘We live very near the sea, and about 14 years ago, I was watching the waves hammering the local dike during an impressive storm. That night I dreamt about it. During that week, I was renovating the interior of a bookshop and saw a book about Noah’s Ark by Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet.

‘It was while reading that book that I realized:
“I am going to build an ‘Ark’!” So I started gathering information. I had to find out about building regulations, shipping regulations, the dimensions of our waterways. I kept on thinking about it and talking about it—the conviction the “Ark” was going to be built stayed with me, all those years. I can now see that I really needed those years of preparation.’

Johan says, "God wants people who are prepared to follow Him wholeheartedly. It is not only the unbelievers who have to be reached; the believers, too, have to be helped to see things clearly, because the attacks on the Bible come from all sides.’"

Building a Second Full Size Ark. Johan Huibers’ downsized ‘Ark’ has now been plying Dutch waterways for more than a year. He is already busy with his next project, his original dream: a full-size ‘Ark’ 150 m (492 ft) long and 25 m (82 ft) wide.

This story keeps getting better. Johan has repeatedly experienced G-d’s providence in this project.

‘For example,’ he says, ‘I needed a tree saw and looked for a secondhand one. But I did not have the money, it cost more than 50,000 euro, and my wife had misgivings. Then suddenly, the company selling the saw went bankrupt, and this very machine ended up on an open-air storage yard next door to me!

‘After the saw had been outside for one winter, I was able to buy it for scrap iron price, per kilo. It was as if God said: “This one’s too expensive for you. I’ll make it cheaper and bring it nearer!”

‘However, an electric motor specialist, who looked at it, said I would have to install new motors and that the wiring was not completely right. Despite that, I tried the machine anyway … and it ran! I felt this was like a ‘wink’ from the Lord: “Continue, you’re on the right track.”’

Johan can testify of many similar occurrences, during the two years that he took to build the ‘Ark’.

Maybe Johan's dream is foretelling a kind of prophesy of retribution coming to the world because of their acquiesence and participation in handing over Jews to the Nazis during WWII. Remember Anne Frank?

Yet Another Nuclear Near Mishap!

UPDATE 1-Los Alamos scurries to protect nuclear lab from fire

* Nuclear weapons lab closes due to fire danger

* Fire has potential to double or triple in size (Recasts; adds suspected cause, details throughout)

Wind ... Water ... Fire

What's next, an "Earth"quake?

Between the tornadoes, floods, and now fire, America seems under attack from "Mother Nature" otherwise known as 'the Environment'.

"Nature" is another name for G-d.

SANTA FE, N.M., June 27 (Reuters) - A raging wildfire on Monday briefly entered the property of the preeminent U.S. nuclear facility, Los Alamos National Laboratory, a vast complex that houses research laboratories and a plutonium facility.

A mandatory evacuation was ordered for the town of Los Alamos, which has a population of about 12,000. The speed at which the fire has grown surprised fire officials.

"The facility is very well protected from any kind of wild land fire threat," ... the facility survived a May 2000 wildfire that claimed some lab buildings and did more than $1 billion in damage.

What Summer Camp are Your Children Going To?

I don't usually post things like this, but I enjoyed reading the article so much. So here goes:

What summer camp do your children go to?
In Chutz L'Aretz, that is.

The author had this to say, plus a whole lot more In The Zionist Camp .

" I wanted my own young children to go to camp close to New York City, where I live. (I am a Jewish mother; I live to fulfill the stereotype of being neurotic and smothering.) But when I started looking for Jewish sleepaway camps in a two-and-a-half-hour radius from the city, I found a terrifying amount of princessery, camps filled with unnervingly sophisticated, spoiled kids with Shabbat dresses more expensive than my entire family’s wardrobe. I found parents who ignored cell-phone bans and sent contraband candy to camp elaborately hidden in tennis-ball canisters. When I asked for other spoiled-campers stories online, my Facebook page lit up. I heard about camps with “no bottled water” policies, because parents were sending so many cases, some camps ran out of storage space. I heard about girls so obsessed with straightening their Jewish hair and worrying about how they looked in a bikini that they flatly refused to swim. I heard about pale pink Shabbat shoes with spike heels (to be worn in the grass and mud!). I heard about kids packing enough technology (iPods, iPads, handheld gaming systems) to rival the contents of J&R and enough jewelry to rival Tiffany. My friend Dan reported overhearing the following exchange:

Camper 1: “My dad works for the largest blah blah blah in the country.”
Camper 2: “Your dad works for somebody?”

From this article, the antidote to families, and thus children, overly immersed in the world of gashmius and materialism is a Zionist approach to summer fun.

Another Nuclear Warning


More than 2 feet of water rushed in around containment buildings and electrical transformers at the 478-megawatt facility located 20 miles north of Omaha. ... Reactor shutdown cooling and spent-fuel pool cooling were unaffected, the NRC said.


OMAHA (AP) -- Missouri River floodwater seeped into the turbine building at a nuclear power plant near Omaha on Monday, but plant officials said the seepage was expected and posed no safety risk because the building contains no nuclear material.

An 8-foot-tall, water-filled temporary berm protecting the plant collapsed early Sunday. Vendor workers were at the plant Monday to determine whether the 2,000 foot berm can be repaired.

JAPAN ... Another Warning!?

They still will not let our frum boys come home!

A magnitude-6.7 earthquake rattled northeast Japan ... in the same area where a massive quake triggered a deadly tsunami in March. There have been no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

See video of the moment

The Japan Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami warning for the region after the quake, but cancelled it about an hour later.
The temblor struck the region of the Pacific where a magnitude-9.0 quake hit on March 11, triggering a huge tsunami. At least 23,000 people were killed or left missing in those disasters, which destroyed hundreds of homes, offices and factories in northeastern Japan.

More "Work Accidents"?

Isn't it very interesting, that the Rusian scientists that helped Persia build their nuclear facilities were killed in the RusAir crash.

Haaretz has the story. be sure to read the last paragraph!

Here Comes More Water ... the Souris River

Photo: Kim Fundingsland/MDN

Is that Tzuris?*

No, it's Souris, North Dakota


All words used to describe what city, county and state officials warn is an imminent assault on all residents of the Souris River Valley.

12,000 to be evacuated

Crest could be 10 feet higher than June 1

"The numbers were crunched for several hours at the NWS Hydrologic Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minn., Monday. What they came up with was an initial high of 1,564.3 feet at Minot's Broadway Bridge by Saturday. As early as Thursday evening the river is projected to surpass its all-time high of 1,558 feet. Those numbers, astronomical in terms of flows in the Souris, only reflect the initial blow to be dealt the city and is subject to further increase as the situation develops and hydrologic outlooks project further into the future."

"Mandatory evacuations were ordered Monday for all evacuation zones within Minot. Mayor Curt Zimbelman said all affected residents and businesses must vacate those areas no later than 10 p.m. Wednesday. Within minutes of the announcement residents once again began the laborious and hastened work of moving out of their homes for the second time this year. "It's a sad day in Minot," Zimbelman said at the end of a press conference Monday."

‘If Decapitating Police Officers is not Terrorism, What is?’

There are some really good people in America.
One of them is Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeau.
[Maybe he should run for President?]

Babeu: Why More Troops at Korean Border Than U.S. Border?

"Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says violence in Arizona by criminal illegal aliens has reached "epidemic proportions." He spoke at a Capitol Hill news conference on Monday, April 19, 2010."

Fast-forward to June 2011

Babeu is the sheriff of Pinal County in southern Arizona and is on the frontlines against illegal immigration, human traffickers, drug smugglers, and potential terrorists. He was named the 2011 National Sheriff of the Year by the National Sheriff’s Association on Sunday, June 19.Some of his brave statements:

"Obama administration’s decision extended the deployment of 1,200 U.S. National Guard troops along the U.S. border with Mexico... There are the 28,500 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea to help defend it against North Korean aggression; U.S. troops have been stationed in South Korea for 58 years.

See this impressive Sheriff in full uniform with medals, on this
CBSnews TV video.

Babeu says: "What are we doing?” ... “We need 6,000 armed soldiers on our border to protect America. Homeland Security starts at home.”

"The federal government should designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations under U.S. law, according to the Republican sheriff of an Arizona county near the Mexican border. ‘If Decapitating Police Officers is not Terrorism, What is?’

But America should not fear [oh yeah]
because the TSA is on the job

Dovid HaMelech's Jerusalem

This is where I've been the past two Sundays, with the final segment in the Megalim series being this coming Sunday. I recommend this to everyone interested in the history of Dovid HaMelech's Jerusalem,

The City of David Excavation site.

In this JPost article, you can read about the
City of David - Gone but not forgotten.

"From any vantage point in Jerusalem the City of David is a pretty unimpressive sight. Indeed, it is hard to believe that this neglected patch of land, a tiny triangle located outside the Old City walls and south of the Temple Mount, was once the splendid capital of the mighty kingdom of Judah. But don't be deceived by appearances: Underneath the stones, weeds, and rubble, the City of David is actually a work in progress where ongoing excavations seem to confirm many a biblical narrative."

Pajamas Media Revealing Expose

Stupid, what Anthony Weiner did to himself.
Was he totally to blame?

Pajamas Media has a expose on Weiner's new wife's in-laws, Mrs Weiner (Huma Abedin) who works extremely closely with Hilary Clinton (who surely does a background check on all her assistants).

Read the revealing background data Pajamas Media found.

An interesting footnote to their expose: "It is sacrilege in Islam for Huma’s mother to accept the reality that her daughter is married to a Jew. Yet neither Saleha nor Huma’s brother Hassan denounces her marriage to Weiner, especially when it was considered null and void by some of the highest authorities on Islamic Sharia rulings."

Does that mean Huma was involved in a l'havdil Queen Esther plot?

Imagine A French Guided Missile Powered by Seaweed

Sounds more like a
It's powered by seaweed
and can transport people to target within one hour,
This doesn't leave enough time to abort the mission should a problem arise!

"Paris - Capable of soaring above the atmosphere at 3,125 mph on biofuel made from seaweed, EADS’s proposed Zero Emission Hypersonic Transportation (ZEHST) could significantly reduce air travel time. The usual eight-hour flight from New York to London would take one, less than half the time it took the old Concorde."

It's fascinating, read the entire article including drawings at link above.

A Good Sign, A Very Good Sign

After reading the comment by Elliot, "Close encounters," left on this blog, I was left in a mysterious state of mind. I had read the orig article some time ago, but had forgotten it.

Then I read this amazingly uplifting feature on the June 21 online JPost:

Best preserved site of First Temple Ruins inaugurated.

Scholars believe [this] area is the "Water Gate" mentioned in the Bible; activists denounce site's focus on Israeli history only. A large complex of ruins from the First Temple Period called the Ophel City Walls Site was inaugurated on Tuesday in the Walls Around Jerusalem National Park, showcasing one the most complete excavations from the First Temple Period and the area believed to be the "Water Gate" mentioned in the bible. Read more here .

The Mayor of Jerusalem deserves our appreciation, for his words:

“Our future lies in the fact that we can reconstruct our past,” said Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who attended the inauguration along with East Jerusalem Development Company director Gideon Shamir, and representatives from the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Nature and Parks Authority. “This site shows the world how the city looked so we can understand the layers of history,” said Barkat. “Part of our strategy is to respect the history of Jerusalem through its layers,” he said, adding that every effort would be made to “expose every piece of Jewish history.”

The Timing Is Right ... Sovereignty

This is What HaShem Gave Us

I wrote about this in March ... And said the only option is to annex and declare sovereignty on Yehudah and the Shomron! They are ours by Yerusha and we can build and beautify the Land. The Arabs can live in their villages as long as they 'behave'. Yes, this what you say to children who misbehave.

Now a brave fellow has created a blog to increase awareness about this issue.
Yoel Meltzer is helping to bring the Israeli consciousness to a higher level:

"Ask many Israelis if they believe in the two-state solution, and many will say something to the effect of 'what choice do we have?' But then ask them if they believe an Arab state will survive as a viable, responsible entity that Israel can live with, or if it will deteriorate into another Gaza or south Lebanon, and they will inevitably answer the latter. And then ask them how they reconcile the two opinions.”

"A mini conference on the subject of Israeli Sovereignty in Judea & Samaria [will be] was held at the OU-Israel Center in Jerusalem on Monday night June 20th at 7:30 PM. The name of the event is “The Preferred Option: Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria”."

Its about time, and according to this blogger,
Yeranen Yaakov the timing (within the next 18 months) couldn't be better for such a proclamation, based on his research under the heading,

We are approaching the year 5772 - the Keitz
of the Zohar and the Gr"a.
Are you ready?

Time For a New Diplomacy

Let's Annex Yehuda and the Shomron

What Israel Should Do Now! by Rabbi Y.Y. Jacobson, a brilliant mind that encourages neshomas.

The Timing is Wrong ... The End Of A Once Great Nation

America is headed for the golus dustbin of history's former ruling nations.

Never thought I would think such a thought, but here it is playing itself out before my eyes. I have been witnessing these events for many years. When thinking of my mother, Malka bas Yosef a"h, I often characterized her life as a time of monumental world changes, 1917-2006. It was a period spanning the end of WWI, thru WWII, and encompassing the crash of the Twin Towers 9/11.

Born in the cradle of history Philadelphia, moving to Tea Party Boston for a while, experiencing this remnant of America's revolutionary history, and finally settling in Brooklyn, NY, the unique center of religious Judaism in the world, before immigrating to our Homeland, I was aware that my life's path somewhat mirrored what was happening on the globe.

Geula was always in the forefront of my eye on events as the G-d of the Universe, our Father in Shomayim, The Supreme Ruler of life was moving around those chess pieces.

The game is still going strong.

And now to some news:

One by one the US President is eliminating the former US Governments' position people to replace them with those aligned with his plans for "a radical transformation," of the 'once great United States' perhaps into a third world type socialist/communist society and a third world economy. Putin is lining up once more to join the (chess game, of which he is a master), while Medvedev is extolling Obama.

To paraphrase
Caroline Glick, who quotes US Defense Secretary Bill Gates in his Newsweek interview:

Outgoing US Defense Secretary Robert Gates is worried about the shape of things to come in US foreign policy. In an interview with Newsweek over the weekend, Gates sounded the warning bells.

"What Gates is effectively saying is not that economic forecasts are gloomy. US defense spending comprises less than five percent of the federal budget. If US President Barack Obama wanted to maintain that level of spending, the Republican-controlled Congress would probably pass his defense budget. What Gates is saying is that he doesn’t trust his commander in chief to allocate the resources to preserve America’s superpower status ..."

In other words, ... "He believes that Obama is willing to 'surrender' the US's status as a superpower ... and it's time for me to retire .. can't imagine being a part of" an Obama foreign policy.

Pieces of the Same Puzzle?

Niall Ferguson in the
the Jerusalem Post's Business & Finance section: "Beware of Arab Spring's Economic Consequences" Niall Ferguson spoke at the Israel Democracy's Institute's Caesarea Economic Policy Planning Forum, "The world is in a massive shift after 500 years of Western Ascendency."

I wrote about Niall back in February.

32 Billion in Mussar

Billion Dollar Disaster

"Through mid-June 2011, unprecedented, eight extreme weather events have become billion-dollar disasters in the U.S. according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). No other year on record (since 1980) has experienced this many such disasters year-to-date. NOAA reports damages from this onslaught of disasters have totaled nearly $32 billion...."

Here’s is a compilation of these record setting events accompanied by descriptions, reproduced in full from NOAA’s Natonal Climatic Data Center:

1) ‘Groundhog Day Blizzard’ Jan 29-Feb 3. Large winter storm impacting many central, eastern and northeastern states. The city of Chicago was brought to a virtual standstill as between 1 and 2 feet of snow fell over the area. Insured losses >$1.1 billion; total losses (e.g., insurance, state and local snow removal, business interruption) >$3.9 billion; 36 deaths.

2) Midwest/Southeast Tornadoes April 4-5. Outbreak of tornadoes over central and southern states (KS,MO,IA,IL,WI,KY,GA,TN,NC,SC) with an estimated 46 tornadoes. Over $1.4 billion insured losses; total losses >$2.0 billion; 9 deaths.

3) Southeast/Midwest Tornadoes April 8-11. Outbreak of tornadoes over central and southern states (NC,SC,TN,AL,TX,OK,KS,IA,WI) with an estimated 59 tornadoes. Over $1.5 billion insured losses; total losses >$2.2 billion; numerous injuries, no known deaths.

4) Midwest/Southeast Tornadoes April 14-16. Outbreak of tornadoes over central and southern states (OK,TX,AR,MS,AL,GA,NC,SC,VA,PA) with an estimated 160 tornadoes. Despite the large overall number of tornadoes, few were classified as intense, with just 14 EF-3, and no EF-4 or EF-5 tornadoes identified. A total of 38 people were killed from the tornadoes, 22 of which were in North Carolina. Over $1.7 billion insured losses; total losses >$2.0 billion; 38 deaths.

5) Southeast/Ohio Valley/Midwest Tornadoes April 25-30. Outbreak of tornadoes over central and southern states (AL,AR,LA,MS,GA,TN,VA,KY,IL,MO,OH,TX,OK) with an estimated 305 tornadoes and 320 deaths. Of those fatalities, 235 occurred in Alabama. The deadliest tornado of the outbreak, an EF-5, hit northern Alabama, killing 78 people. Several major metropolitan areas were directly impacted by strong tornadoes including Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Huntsville in Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee, causing the estimated damage costs to soar. Insured losses likely >$5.0 billion, yet this is still being accounted. Insurance catastrophe modeler AIR estimated insured losses ranging $3.7-5.5 billion. Total losses may approach $10.0 billion; 320 deaths.

6) Midwest/Southeast Tornadoes May 22-27. Outbreak of tornadoes over central and southern states (AL,AR,LA,MS,GA,TN,VA,KY,IL,MO,OH,TX,OK) with an estimated 180 tornadoes and 172 deaths. Notably, an EF-5 tornado struck Joplin, MO resulting in at least 141 deaths making it the deadliest single tornado to strike the U.S. since modern tornado record keeping began in 1950. Insured losses still being accounted & are unavailable. Insurance catastrophe modeler EQECAT estimates insured losses in Joplin alone ranges from $1.0-3.0 billion. Modeler AIR estimates insured losses for the full May 22-27 event may total $4.0-7.0 billion. Total losses may exceed $7.0 billion; 172 deaths.

7) Texas Drought & Wildfires Spring-Summer 2011. During March and April, drought and wildfires were the main headline across the Texas, New Mexico, and western Oklahoma. Fighting/suppression costs are ~$1 million / day; total losses to agriculture and cattle are estimated to range between $1.5-3.0 billion. This cost estimate reflects losses as of 16 June, and will likely rise as the event continues.

Mississippi River flooding Spring-Summer 2011. Estimated economic loss ranges from $2.0-4.0 billion. Below are more detailed stats, which are preliminary, as the event continues to unfold (as of 6/16):

$500 million to agriculture in Arkansas

$320 million in damage to Memphis, Tennessee

$800 million to agriculture in Mississippi

$317 million to agriculture and property in Missouri’s Birds Point-New Madrid Spillway

$80 million for the first 30 days of flood fighting efforts in Louisiana

Science Story of the Century

Physicists say sunspot cycle is 'going into hibernation'

What may be the science story of the century is breaking, as heavyweight US solar physicists announce that the Sun appears to be headed into a lengthy spell of low activity, which could mean that the Earth – far from facing a global warming problem – is actually headed into a mini Ice Age.

"NASA: Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715. Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented.

"This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past.

Why Aliyah?

Turkey is next. With the re-election of their nasty leader, my estimation is that the nastiness toward the Jews of Turkey will turn for the worse and there will be an escalation chv's in antisemitic incidents upon them. Another way to say, "emigrate and return home to Eretz Yisrael." (The distance is not far)

Morrocan Jews. Jews are already leaving Morocco - and three-quarters of the Jewish community are thinking of packing their bags in the face of rising Islamism, according to a young Jew who still lives there.

Yosef Hartuv writes on his blog
Love of the Land* “The yearning to see the Land increases, and the vision of the concrete, holy image of the Land which the eyes of G-d are upon from the beginning of the year until the end becomes deeper and deeper.”

This very yearning is also very strong within me, desiring to see the beautiful Land, to feel it as a breathing living entity, constantly evolving and growing. Under its top soil are many springs deep within the soul of the Land, waiting for Jews to dig deep and find the second most important element for living. The first being air, and the air of Eretz HaKodesh is exhilirating, stimulating, inspiring, nourishing, and healthy. All this waiting thousands of years for us to return to discover, develop and delight in.

Some of us come yearning voluntarily, and others had to flee. But what will happen to those who ignore the pleas to return home, and those who cannot read the "writing on the wall" of current events?

Why Aliyah?

by Jacob Richman: I made aliyah to Israel on August 30, 1984. It was the best decision of my life and I highly recommend it. … May the aliyah from all over of the world grow and bring more Jews back to their homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

On the one hand

we have
Nefesh B'Nefesh that helps the Jewish People to return to their Home-Land, to join the already gathered Jews that escaped or were expelled from many countries they once lived in, and to be included in the greatest rebirth of a Nation on the planet.

Last week, we spiritually and esthetically just left Har Sinai, equipped with our Holy Torah and its 613 laws to follow; to travel the desert to finally enter into the Land Hashem gave us.

We are realizing the millennial desire to rebuild the Land and transform a national community of Jews into a physical sovereign Nation. Nefesh B'Nefesh is taking on the world. It now resembles an octopus, reaching into the remaining countries (becoming increasingly hostile to Jews) to help the remnants of Jews return to their HomeLand.

But what happens after we do come home and begin living that dream?

The leader of the (once) most 'powerful country' in the world (that many of us moved from but have friends and fragments of families still residing in) is threatening Israel that it must carve up and give up pieces of its sovereign home
land to its perennial enemy.

But wait, after the Sar (leader) of the Jews' perennial enemy attacked and continued to threaten 'that powerful country', what did that country do? It spent years hunting down their enemy and eliminated him from the face of the earth (as first reported in the Hamodia).

But, now, this same 'powerful country' wants this tiny sovereign country to share its homeland with that very same enemy people.

In other words, "Do as I say, not as I do." Obama continues to bully Israel

(Read what Jennifer Rubin concludes)

To compound this delirium, the leader of this tiny sovereign country tells the whole world that he cannot and will not .... But the next day we read in this sovereign country's papers that their secret service attacks people living on their
Land ........... the same land that the leader of that powerful other country wants given over to its perennial enemy! The same homeland our nation has returned to after a very long interlude*.

What schizophrenia!
A tsunami of absurdity is flooding the world.

"Aliyah: Live the Dream"
Let's hope the dream does not turn into a nightmare?

* interlude: functions to fill a gap, to occupy an interval of time

Keep It Up Barak

A Whopper of a Depression!

"Interest rates are amazingly low and that, thanks to Ben Bernanke, is driving everything," Yastrow said. "We’re on the verge of a great, great depression. The [Federal Reserve] knows it.

"We have many, many homeowners that are totally underwater here and cannot get out from under. The technology frontier is limited right now. We definitely have an innovation slowdown and the economy’s gonna suffer."

We Jews Don't Believe in COINCIDENCE

It's All the Hand of HaShem
(within nature right now)

Obama says starting point for negotiating a Palestinian State WITHIN Israel begins with the pre "1967 lines" with land swaps to accommodate current situation

Over 50 tornadoes attack the American Heartland (East and West of the Mississippi)

Obama reiterates and elucidates his "67 lines" speech for AIPAC soon thereafter.

Another grouping of killer tornadoes attacks the American Heartland, devasting one city. Joplin, Missouri is practically wiped off the map!

Will There Be a US Dollar Collapse?

This is the LOGO from The Dollar Vigilante who says:

The Door is About to Shut for Americans:
(forewarned is forearmed)

"Anyone aware of the US Government's real financial situation knows that time is running out. The Government has $15.5 trillion in admitted debts but those debts, when calculated under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), or 'honest accounting', is over $70 trillion. $70 trillion divided by 300 million+ Americans works out to $233,000 per person in US Federal Government debt and obligations. Or nearly $1 million per family of four."

"...the US Government recently made it very obvious that funds held in retirement accounts are going to be the first to be taken when times get tough."

"There are two ways to look at the upcoming battle between the US Government and US citizens. You can stay and fight or you can run and hide ... If you would rather run and hide then one of the first things you should be looking to do at this time is to at least get a second passport. This is still legal for Americans and there are many options."

"If you live in the US and still have all your assets inside of the US, you likely have months, not years, to internationally diversify your assets and to get your affairs in order. Anything much after 2011 is taking a big risk of losing it all."

This is not all:

The war began with a press release.
Dated May 13, 2010 from the Central Bank of the Russian Federation

Who else but Russia. The Russian Central Bank was creating a new global currency, the “gold reserve dollar,” which would be issued by a financial agent in London and backed by tons of Russian gold shipped to secure vaults in Switzerland, the press release said. The goal: to drive the value of the U.S. dollar down by 75 percent overnight and wreak havoc on the struggling American economy.

And who is joining in, China: "Zhou Xiaochuan, the governor of the People’s Bank of China, called for the introduction of a new currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the basic building block of the global economy.

"The new system, Zhou proposed, would be operated by the International Monetary Fund and would protect global investors from American economic mistakes, which he diplomatically referred to as “inherent vulnerabilities and systemic risks in the existing international monetary system.” Driving home his point, Zhou said he envisioned a system “disconnected from economic conditions and sovereign interests of any single country.”

And these reports are from 2008, 2009 and 2010

Now that "We rely on G-d"
All Israelis must be constantly alert
over the next many days for
the diabolical insane death worshipers.

Every time a directive like this is issued, some insane martyr goes out on a mission. The headline from a YNet article has reported

"Iran cleric: Killing Israeli children OK"

"Iranian Ayatollah endorses evil: Radical religious cleric known as President Ahmadinejad's spiritual mentor says attacks on Israeli civilians permissible, suicide bombings a Muslim duty

"senior Iranian cleric, known as Ahmadinejad's spiritual mentor, urged followers to continue suicide attacks against Israelis, including children.

"Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah, considered one of the Islamic Republic's most radical clerics, issued a religious edict on his website whereby suicide attacks are not only legitimate but are a must for every Muslim, a special paper by the Middle East Media Research Institute shows."
