Need to share my thoughts.
I viewed Netanyahu as part of the erev rav and part of the DS. I know others don’t agree, but it was an allusion that with Bibi there was greater religious life. It was an alliance of illusion. As we have learned, the religious life of many were destroyed (by a variety of factors). Religious life was being torn asunder from the outside and from the inside. Something had to disrupt this process. Also, the majority of the secular non-Torah observant in America are practically lost to the Nation of Israel (Bnei Yisrael). And the minority members of Torah observant Jewish life are being decimated by gashmius and weakness in halacha. Something also had to occur to halt this progression.
We are truly at a very low level as Rabbi Kessin describes. It is heartbreaking to recognize this. Hashem had to ‘step in’ and shock us into reality.
Both the 2020 Virus and the Meron tragedies have surely shook the Jews down to their toes.
I’m sure many are realising that Hashem had to “klop on the Bima” to get out attention , and send the message: “Enough is enough”. "Get a hold of yourselves, come back to the ways of our Avos and Imahos!” “If you don’t do it, then I will force you to!”
That’s where we are now, facing this new government with many in the Israeli Frum communities fearing a terrifying experience from this government of mostly non-believers, and anti-Jews. Will Bennett, Sa’ar and the religious members of this government be able to control any evil plans in the making?
Yes, I heard Rabbi Kessin say that it will be the religious community that will suffer and redeem the rest of the nation. It will be a “yerida for an aliyah”!
I am not so fearful of what might happen. I think instinctively I realize we can only go up from here. That Hashem is in control and things will turn out for the better. And that our 6000 year clock is ticking away and everything that our Mesorah says, Techias HaMeisim, Mashiach, our Third Beit HaMikdash, needs to happen SOON! I sincerely hope to be able to see Avraham Avinu, Yitzchak Avinu, Yaakov Avinu, Sarah Imeinu, Rochel Imeinu, Rifka Imeinu, and Leah Imeinu, and also Moshe Rabbeinu, and especially Yosef HaTzadik. I wish we could all go back to life as it was so purely lived during the first Beis, with the scarcity, and the clothing, and the simple way of living. I feel my neshoma belonged to that generation, and I wish to be there again.
This long long long Golus needs to come to its end, which will really be our new beginning.
