New beginnings and good new week inspiration on Iran!

Have a great and Midnightrabbi inspiresd week, hoping for only good news …:)

Keep strong as the times change, Iran’s leaders have made it very clear that they intend to annihilate the State of Israel. iranian officials have publicly stated the following: G-d forbid, which He promises already in the Torah!

“@Israel must be wiped of the map”
“Israel has reached the end like a dead rat”
“Israel will be annihilated”

As IRAN stands on the verge of completing its nuclear weapons arsenal, Israel’s very existence is in jeopardy.

Unfortunately, world leaders have pressured Israel to hold back from military action. Economic sanctions have not deterred Iran from its nuclear objectives.

Please join me in urging President barack obama to support Yidden and Birthright Israel Next SoFla right to defend itself and ensure the safety and security of its citizens. We can not stand idly by and allow another The Holocaust to take place before our eyes G-d forbid Always Remember Never Forget

As the new month and blessings on the blossoms of the trees is coming, now lets hear from lazer brody – “Do you know why there’s global warming? It comes from all the hot air of politicians around the world who say that Iran is not an existential threat to Israel.
Imagine that GRAD missiles were falling in your neighborhood. It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? For us in the south of Israel, it’s a reality. What do you say to the foreign politician who tells you, “No big deal – it’s not an existential threat.” You’d wish that the hot bag-of-air have a taste of missiles falling on his family, then let him talk…

Debka reports that the missiles that have been fired at us for the last seven days have been smuggled from Sinai through tunnels managed by Iranian intelligence agents in conjunction with local al Qaeda networks. That’s it folks – Iran and Al Qaida – with Hamas happily sitting on the sidelines. By the way, Hamas has realigned with Iran, and its heads are in Tehran right now coordinating moves with Achmedinejad.

Let the BBC and the CNN talk all day long, but the reality is that we here in the south of Israel are already in confrontation with Iran right now. Our kids are not in school today, again, and you don’t walk out of the house without keeping one eye on the nearest bomb shelter.

Our anti-emuna government has lost all its deterrence. No one takes anything they say seriously.

This is all a gift from Hashem. With Moshiach so very close, Hashem is teaching us – rush style – that there’s no one to depend on but Him.”

-We are in crises, and with every day the crises intensifies. There is a new Hitler on the world scene –  Ahmadinejad, who unabashedly proclaims his plan to annihilate Israel, and he is preparing to do so. Some say that he is a few months away, and some say it will be a year or so ….. and still others say that he already has it in his hands. He has the arsenal that, in minutes, can do to an entire nation that which the gas chambers did to six million

And what are we doing about it? “  Shockingly,  NOTHING! Our world is crumbling and we are going on with “business as usual”

            And should you be among those who take this threat to heart, you will quickly be assured that Ahmadinejad  is a madman… not to be taken seriously.

            Yes, I agree, he is a madman, and that is precisely why he should be taken seriously. We should be concerned. Madmen are mad enough to carry out their satanic plots.. Trust me– I know. I saw Hitler in action and I also saw a cruel, evil world willingly accept and participate in the barbaric extermination of our people.

            Prior to Hitler’s conflagration, Hashem sounded the alarm.  He sent us many wake-up calls, but we went back to sleep until the inferno consumed six million of our people. One would have imagined that we learned our lesson and would not allow this tragedy to be repeated.  Hashem’s wake up calls have once again been sounded, but once again we have turned a deaf ear and shut our eyes. since Hitler’s conflagration was so recent and not something that occurred centuries ago, we would surely not fall into that trap again, but incredibly, we see it unfolding before our very eyes, We never absorbed the lesson. Tragically, we keep repeating the same mistakes and obdurately remain deaf and blind.  Compulsively, we repeat the tragedies of the past. I have been speaking about this for many years, and there have been those who advise me to focus on “happier subjects” – subjects that are “entertaining”; subjects that are “light”. But I dare not remain silent, I dare not ignore the wake up calls and the catastrophe they portend, So my ensuing columns, which I ask all our readers to read with their hearts, will be devoted to this painful topic.  I will limit myself to the wake up calls that we have witnessed in the last couple of years. But the wake-up calls commenced many years ago.

            During the summer of 2002, a terrible tragedy occurred in a bungalow colony in New York’s Catskill Mountains, A mother had just bathed her infant and put her into her carriage for a nap. Suddenly, from out of nowhere,  a wild bear appeared, snatched the baby from her carriage, and made off with her.  The shocking story appeared in newspapers and the media, but somehow it   failed to make an impression, yet our Talmud clearly states that the generation that witnesses a wild beast snatching a baby from its cradle should sound the alarm with a shofar to awaken the people. But the shofar was not sounded and we were not awakened.

            During the last few years, the number of catastrophes has multiplied to such an extent, that we have all but become immune to them. Natural disasters like tsunamis, Hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes (even in New York City), global warming, dead birds falling from the skies by the hundreds of thousands, dead fish and sardines washing up on the shores by the hundreds  of thousands, wild animals….. lions, tigers, wolves, roaming the streets of Ohio, world economic crisis, devaluation of the dollar and the Euro, accompanied by crippling unemployment, high oil prices, hitherto unknown diseases, barbaric acts of terror,  nuclear spill in Japan and today’s nuclear threat from Iran that threatens the very survival of our civilization, have all come to be accepted as the norm. “It is what it is,” we tell ourselves with resignation, and we go on with our lives as usual.  But can all this be attributed to mere coincidence? Shouldn’t these afflictions give us pause? Shouldn’t we stop and take stock of our lives? But incredibly we remain blind deaf and dumb.

            There is a story about a Hasidic rebbe who was walking with his disciples when he noticed a little boy behind a tree, crying bitterly.

           “Why are you crying?” he asked.

           “I’m hiding, and no one is looking for me.”

           The words of the child were like a sharp knife in the heart of the rebbe. “Woe is us,” he said to his students, G-d is waiting for us to find Him, but we have failed to search for Him. Woe is us!”

Maimonides taught that, when suffering is visited upon us, we are commanded to cry out and awaken our people with the sound of the shofar, Everyone must be alerted to examine his or her life, and commit to greater adherence to Torah and mitzvos. Maimonides warned that, if we regard the tragedies that befall us simply as “the way of the world” – “natural happenings.” we will be guilty ofachzarius – cruelty.

            At first glance, it is difficult to understand why Maimonides would choose the term “cruelty” to describe those who view trials and tribulations as “natural happenings.” Such people may be unthinking, apathetic, foolish, blind or obtuse, but why accuse them of cruelty.

            The answer is simple, If we regard our pain and suffering as “mere coincidence” we will feel no motivation to examine our lives, abandon our old ways and change. So yes, such an attitude is cruel, for it invites additional misfortune upon ourselves and others.

            It would be the height of cruelty to dismiss that which is occurring in the world today as mere happenstance. Great Torah luminaries of past generations such as the Chofetz Chaim and Rabbi Elchanan Wasserman, told us that we are entering the final stages of history – a period in time called “Ikvesa DiMeshicha – Footsteps of the Messiah”   Our Torah foretells four exiles through which our people would suffer: Egypt, Babylonia – Persian-Mede Empires, Greece and Rome  – (the exile in which we presently find ourselves, for it was the Romans who exiled us when they destroyed the Second Temple).

            In Pirkei d’Rabbi Eliezer, an early Midrshic work, it is written that, before the coming of Messiah, we will have to contend with a fifth source of tribulation that will come from Yishmael – the Arabs – who will inflict terrible suffering on the world and on our people. This teaching is reaffirmed by Rabbi Chaim Vital, the illustrious disciple of  the Arizal, who wrote that before the final curtain falls upon the stage of history, Yishmael will inflict torture upon our people in ways the world has never before seen. One need not have great powers of discernment to recognize the painful veracity of these predictions, Consider only the suicide bombers, the decapitations, the hijackings, the missiles, the rockets and the constant, senseless, brutal acts of terror.

            We are the generation that has been destined to witness the fulfillment of the prophecy given to Hagar the matriarch of the Arab-Moslem world (Genesis 16: 11-13). “Behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son, and you shall name him Ishmael…and he shall be a wild ass of a man; with his hand against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and over all his brethren shall he dwell…..”

            The long arm of Ishmael’s terror shall has indeed reach every part of the world.

            There is yet another amazing prophecy in theYalkut Shimoni – a Medieval Midrashiv compilation that eerily foretells the events of today and should give us all pause. Rabbi Yitzchok said: :The year in which Melech HaMashiach will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other, The King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia (Saudi Arabia) The King of Arabia will go to Edom (the leader of the Christian nations – the President of the United States) to take counsel and the King of Persia (Ahmadinejad) will threaten to destroy the entire world..

            “The nations of the world will be outraged and panic . They will fall on their faces and experiences pains like birth pangs…… Israel too., will be outraged and in a state of panic, ask, “Where do we go?”

          “But say unto them, ‘My children, do not fear, The time of your redemption has come….. And this last redemption shall be different from the first that was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption , you will not experience any further  pain or subjugation” (Yalkut ShemoniIsaiah 59).

            The Klausenberger Rebbe, z”tl, referring to this teaching, said, “Remember these words. They are perhaps not understood now, but in time they will be, and will be a source of strength to our people.”

One thought on “New beginnings and good new week inspiration on Iran!

  1. Torah and Chessed Institutions
    Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva
    Parashat Vayakhel-Pekudei, 5772

    Emuna is the Foundation
    Why do people experience tests in this world? In order to
    request Hashem’s help. Many people have situations in
    their lives where a great opportunity presents itself to ask
    for Hashem’s help and thereby come closer to Him, only
    to try doing it on their own. A five-year old child doesn’t
    hesitate to ask his father to help him carry something
    heavy or his mother to help him do a particular chore. We
    too are all small children in this world and must not be shy
    or proud to ask our Heavenly Father for help. This world is
    very difficult to pass through alone. Therefore, be wise
    and humble by asking Hashem for help and you’ll surely
    receive it and be successful. A person must get into this
    habit in every situation in life, he should pray: “Hashem,
    please have mercy on me and help me surpass this test. I
    can’t do it alone; I realize that I need your help.” What loving father turns away from such a sincere request?
    This is simple emuna: to ask Him to help us in every situation, because there’s no situation too small or great to ask
    for His help. We learn from the book of Shemot how our
    forefathers merited the first redemption and how, we too
    will merit the final redemption; each person’s individual
    redemption as well as the general redemption of the entire
    Jewish People. What is it written there? The Jewish People
    were in the Egyptian exile and the Torah relates that the
    redemption took place…when? When they cried out to
    Hashem! This refers to prayer. This is what we need to
    learn from the holy Torah: that any redemption, whether it
    is an exile of shalom bayit, an exile of livelihood or an exile of health. Because the bitterest exile is when the soul
    is in exile and is not free to return to Hashem and serve
    Him; rather, it’s sunk in base desires. This is the worst
    kind of exile imaginable! Therefore, a person must do as
    the Torah teaches us to do when we’re in the bitterest of
    exiles: to cry out to Hashem and beg Him to help you and
    take you out of it!
    What happened next? The people believed in Moshe’s
    message and the redemption began. When a person begins to have emuna (prayer), he begins to rid himself of
    his impurities which have a strong grasp on him. Emuna
    doesn’t mean to believe that there’s a God in Heaven who
    created the world, etc. Emuna means that we truly believe
    that He can help us in any situation; so we turn and cry
    out to Him. This is a crucial turning point in leaving our personal exile. When we begin to speak to Hashem and
    request for His assistance, it is a sign that our personal
    redemption process has already begun.
    This is the way we need to learn the Torah. Many people
    read the Torah, but fail to see the personal message which
    Hashem sends each and every one of us. This is not
    learning Torah; rather, reading a history book. The Torah
    is not a history book, and we must learn to see how to
    come closer to Hashem with every word we read. Why
    are people far from learning the Torah in such a manner?
    Because they’re far from emuna. Why are people far from
    fulfilling the Torah? Because they don’t have emuna. For
    it is written (Psalms 119) “All of Your mitzvot are emuna.”
    Someone with emuna fulfills Hashem’s mitzvot with great
    joy. He’s happy to put on tefillin and tzitzit and pray to
    Hashem, rather than just trying to get it out of the way.
    Why? Because he loves and believes in Hashem and only
    desires to fulfill His mitzvot with joy. Emuna is the very
    foundation of everything in this world and the entire Torah.
    Why doesn’t someone have shalom bayit? He doesn’t
    have emuna, because whoever doesn’t have shalom bayit
    lacks emuna. Whatever his wife does to him is really
    Hashem’s doing because he only sees Hashem. Therefore, he goes to pray and do teshuvah in order to solve
    the problem at its root. He doesn’t argue or blame his wife
    for anything. Someone who believes in Hashem only sees
    Hashem. This is true emuna!
    Emuna is the foundation of everything; this is why Rebbe
    Nachman taught us (Likutei Moharan I:7), “Know, the
    reason for exile is due to a lack of emuna.” So by strengthening our emuna, we merit being redeemed and bringing
    about the coming of our righteous Mashiach, speedily and
    in our days. Amen.

    A Daily Stroll through the Garden
    The Garden of Gratitude, pages 181-200
    Join us as we pace ourselves through Rav Shalom Arush’s
    books, which have given so many people the ability to
    overcome and succeed in the face of life’s most difficult
    trials and tribulations. We are currently reading from the
    “The Garden of Gratitude” with a pace of about 3 pages
    per day which should take only about 5 minutes a day.

    Family Life
    An excerpt taken from an article online called “Education
    with Love”, which can be read at:
    The first big mistake that parents make is that they take
    personal insult in the child’s behavior. Let me give you an
    example: a mother or father is tired, and wants to take a
    nap in the afternoon. Their 4 year old and 6 year old want
    to have a pillow fight or play cowboys and Indians, something perfectly normal for two little boys. The parent yells
    for them to be quiet, and let’s say that they’re quiet for a
    minute or two. But, as normal 4 and 6 yr. olds, they soon
    forget themselves and now are in the midst of their imaginary horseback chase in Apache country. Six-year old
    Chief Sitting Bull is chasing 4-year old General Custer
    outside of the bedroom into the living room, which has
    now turned in to Dakota Territory. Remember, this imaginary game is quite real for a child. Pretty soon, little General Custer is captured, and he starts crying because he
    now wants to be an Indian too. Six-year old Sitting Bull
    now gives out an Ogalala Sioux war cry, and starts his
    victory dance on top the sofa, waving his spear (which is
    really the broom from the kitchen) and praising The Almighty the same way that he saw in the story book that
    Grandpa bought him for Chanuka.
    By this time, Mom flies out of bed, and in earthquake
    terms, her blood pressure is about 6.8 on the Richter
    scale. If it’s dad that happened to be resting, he might be
    springing out bed with a belt or some other foreboding
    weapon in his hand. They start yelling at the boys, shouting in anger, sometimes even cursing. They shout all
    types of accusations like, “You two never listen!”, or “Don’t
    you have the slightest consideration for your mother or father?” Even worse, they come with all kinds of labels and
    epithets like “wild animals,” “brats,” “deaf,” “nasty kids” –
    you name it.
    Now, let’s look at this objectively: little Avremele and Yankele are only 4 and 6 years old, respectively. The only
    thing that’s on their mind right now is their game. They
    both love their parents. They don’t have a bone of inconsideration or insolence in their innocent little bodies. Their
    objective is to play and to enjoy their children’s world of
    make-believe; they’re doing what a 4 and 6 year old are
    geared to do. Never do they have the slightest intent of
    disturbing their parents. Yet, Mommy or Daddy wipes the
    floor with these pure little souls, pouring out a ton of wrath
    that does who-knows-what type of damage to their little
    souls for posterity.
    Let’s pause for a moment: children must certainly be educated with borderlines. For example, we teach them that 2
    PM on Shabbat in the afternoon is a time when the whole
    family takes a rest, and not time for the Wyatt Earp and
    Jesse James to have their gunfight in the OK corral. Yet,
    a parent must remember that children have a Yetzer Hara, an Evil Inclination, and they also have their own little
    We should pray that Hashem help us have true success in
    raising our children with emuna and joy. Amen!
    Avodat Hashem
    We continue with an excerpt from Likutei Halachot – Laws
    of Rising up in the Morning, Halacha 1, Paragraphs 6 and
    7, based on “Azamra” (Likutei Moharan I, lesson 282):
    We see from this that the main way of waking from sleep
    is by the good points which a person finds within himself,
    even if he is on a very low level, G-d forbid. Through this
    he creates a song, as above. Because at night, which is
    the main time of sleep, the Shechinah (Divine Presence)
    is involved in extracting the sparks of holiness, as is
    known (see Pri Etz Chaim, Tikkun Chatzot 2). This is
    alluded to above, in that when a person is overcome with
    spiritual slumber, at that time he needs to request, search
    for and find good points within himself through which he
    can wake himself from his spiritual slumber, as above.
    This corresponds to (Psalms 77) “I remember my song at
    night; I speak to my heart; and I search for my spirit”, that
    if I speak with my heart and search my spirit during the
    time of night and darkness, which correspond to sleep;
    that is, I search and request for the good spirit – the good
    point. Through this a song is made, as in “I remember my
    song at night”. Through this I can overcome and awake
    myself from my slumber by finding the good points within
    myself, for this is the main rectification of prayer. Because
    the main aspect of prayer is only when a person merits
    finding good points within himself, as in “I will sing to my
    G-d with the little good within me”.
    This corresponds to the order of prayer which begins by
    reciting the sacrifice and incense offerings, which are the
    extracting the good points from the bad, even from animals, with the intention of elevating them, as is known
    (see Pri Etz Chaim, Sha’ar HaTefillah 5-6). For this is the
    main purpose of the sacrifices, to elevate it from an animal state to that of a human state. This also corresponds
    to the incense which included galbanum (which had a
    foul-smelling odor) – meaning, that they found and extracted the good even within the worst Jewish sinners.
    This corresponds to galbanum, as our holy sages stated
    (Keritot 6b) “Any communal prayer which does not include
    the prayers of the Jewish sinners is not considered a
    prayer”. For the main prayer corresponds to the incense,
    through which they extracted the good points, even within
    the Jewish sinners, as in the galbanum. This corresponds
    to the eleven spices – that is, ten spices except the galbanum, which correspond to the ten types of song which
    are created by extracting the good within the Jewish
    sinners, the galbanum.
    When we recite the morning sacrifices it’s as if we brought
    them, as our holy sages stated (Menachot 110a) “Whoever occupies himself with studying [the portion of] the Torah [related to the sacrifices] is considered as if he
    brought a burnt-offering”. Because the main rectification of
    the sacrifices is through speech; whereby we elevate the
    fallen sparks from the inanimate, plant and animal levels
    to the level of human (speech). And the main elevation of
    the good points which rise from the low levels is for them
    to rise to the level of human. At first when the good has not 3
    been extracted or is not recognizable due to the bad covering it; at that time they are in a state of muteness which
    doesn’t speak, as in (Psalms 39) “I was mute with silence,
    I held my goodness within me…”. And when the good
    within is revealed, then the main revelation and elevation
    of the good is through speech.
    This corresponds to (Song of Songs 2), “O my dove, in
    the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the cliff…”,
    which is the good point which is like a pure white dove
    which remains loyal to its mate and never leaves its mate
    (Midrash Song of Songs 4). For the good point within
    each person, even the lowest Jew, is always attached to
    Hashem wherever it may be; and when it falls, G-d forbid,
    to the depths of the klipot (impure forces) which surround
    it from all sides, as in “O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
    in the secret places of the cliff…” and is completely hidden. Then Hashem tells it (ibid verse 14) “Let Me see your
    face, let Me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet and
    your face is beautiful”. For although you are hidden in secret places; nevertheless, you yourself are very beautiful,
    as in “I am black, but beautiful”.
    Therefore, [Hashem says] reveal yourself and show your
    face, because you are still beautiful due to the good point
    which always retains its beauty. Therefore, “Let Me see
    your face, let Me hear your voice” – meaning, let the
    beauty of the good point be revealed and brought out
    through “Let Me hear your voice”. Through revealing the
    beauty of the good point one merits speech and then one
    is able to speak, praise and thank Hashem; because before he wasn’t able to speak at all. This is (Song of Songs
    8) “O you who dwell in the gardens, the companions listen
    to your voice”, where Rashi explains “You who dwell in
    the gardens among the gentile nations of the world”.
    These are the good points that dwell and reside among
    the gentile nations of the world, which [represent] the evil
    desires and sins, as explained elsewhere (LM I:36). And
    Hashem desires to hear their voice, as in “the companions
    listen to your voice”; because Hashem desires that the
    good points be revealed and their voice be heard in song,
    praise to Him. These are the burnt-offerings which are
    elevated by the good points through speech. Therefore,
    “Whoever occupies himself with studying [the portion of]
    the Torah [related to the sacrifices] is considered as if he
    brought a burnt-offering”, because the main rectification of
    the sacrifice is through speech, as above.
    May Hashem help us continue building on our good points
    in order to enable us to speak to Him in personal prayer
    and merit coming closer to Him. Amen!
    A Story for the Shabbat Table
    Rebbe Nachman taught us to always look to turn a seemingly bad situation into a good one. This is done mainly
    by focusing on the good that can come from it through
    simplicity. With Hashem’s help, this short story teaches us
    how to do just that in order to never despair from any
    seemingly bad situation and always maintain our joy and
    The Tainted Grain – From Rebbe Nachman’s shorter
    A king once told his prime minister, who was also his good
    friend, “I see in the stars that whoever eats any grain that
    grows this year will go mad. What is your advice?”
    The prime minister replied, “We must put aside enough
    grain so that we will not have to eat from this year’s harvest.”
    The king objected, “But then we will be the only ones who
    will be sane. Everyone else will be mad. Therefore, they
    will think that we are the mad ones. It is impossible for us
    to put aside enough grain from everyone. Therefore, we
    too must eat this year’s grain. But we will make a mark on
    our foreheads, so that at least we will know that we are
    mad. I will look at your forehead, and you will look at
    mine, and when we see this sign, we will know that we are
    both mad.”
    Gems of Rebbe Nachman
    Someone once asked the Rebbe about how to come
    close to Hashem and the Rebbe instructed him to study
    certain things. When the man said that he did not know
    how to learn, the Rebbe said, “Through prayer one can
    attain everything – Torah, service all holiness, all the
    services and all the benefits of all the worlds.” Another
    time he said, “If a dead person was allowed to return to
    this world and pray, he would certainly prayer very well,
    with all his might.” (Likutei Moharan II, #111)
    “By telling over stories about the tzaddikim you draw the
    light of Mashiach into the world. Relating these stories
    also chases away much darkness and pain, and the one
    who tells them is rewarded with beautiful clothing.” (The
    Aleph Bet Book – Tzaddik B #1-2)
    The Rebbe’s Promise
    “When my days are over and I leave this world, I will still
    intercede for anyone who comes to my grave, gives a coin
    to charity and says these Ten Psalms. No matter how
    great his sins, I will do everything in my power, spanning
    the length and breadth of the creation to cleanse and
    protect him. I will pull him out by his peyot from Gehinom.
    I am very sure of everything I say, but I am most sure in
    regard to the great benefit of these Ten Psalms.”
    The Ten Psalms, also known as the Tikkun Klali (The
    General Remedy) are as follows: 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90,
    105, 137, and 150. They are also very beneficial to say at
    any time.
