Parshat Nitzavim - Vayelech 5774

24 Elul 5774
Erev Shabbat Kodesh

Parashat Nitzavim/Vayelech - Free Will – Rabbi Meir Kahane

See – I have placed before you today the life and the good, and the death and the evil, that which I command you today. To love Hashem, your G-d, to walk in His ways, to observe His commandments, His decrees, and His ordinances; then you will live and you will multiply, and Hashem, your G-d, will bless you in the Land to which you come to possess it... I call heaven and earth as witnesses! Before you I have placed life and death, the blessing and the curse. You must choose life, so that you and your descendants will live. (Deut. 30:15,16).

This warning was issued when the Jewish People were about to enter their land, to live there isolated from the nations' detestable practices. Unfortunately, even in Eretz Yisrael, we sinned greatly and exile was decreed, such that instead of being a “nation that dwells alone” (Num. 23:9), we ended up among the nations, and most of the Jewish People became like them. As a result, large parts of our people, in effect, lost the ability to choose. The free choice that was their lot in Eretz Yisrael, their land and birthplace, became a farce among the nations where they were conquered by foreign culture; and countless Jews became spiritual captives.

How can we expect Israel to repent as a people when they do not even have any questions? Why should G-d continue punishing His people for so long when not only is the punishment not beneficial, but, as we saw following the dreadful Holocaust, tens of thousands of believing Jews even became heretics? How can G-d draw near to Him a people that has lost its understanding to choose between good and evil, between life and death? Regarding the verse, “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then may you also do good, that are accustomed to doing evil” (Jer. 13:23), Redak comments, “You have so accustomed yourselves to evil that it cannot leave you, as though it were a second nature to you.”In this age of great scientific and technological advancement, when materialistic, cosmopolitan “realism” makes assimilation seem acceptable, it is clear that the Jewish captive to foreign culture will not improve his ways. Quite the contrary, he marches along proudly, far from the camp, far from the idea of repenting, almost cut off from every link to his origins. He has lost, so to speak, the power of free choice. He who was earmarked to be like the stars of the heavens, wallows in the mire.

The Torah's very defining good and evil in real, absolute terms constitutes a declaration of war against the culture of the nations and the Hellenists [westernized, secular Jews] who adopted it. That culture preaches that no one absolute good or evil can be determined, since all ideas and concepts, including those defining good and evil, are the product of human thought. Both those who deny the existence of a Supreme, Omniscient, Omnipotent G-d Who is the source of wisdom and truth, and those who admit the existence of a Supreme Being yet deny Torah from Sinai, i.e., that G-d set forth a blueprint in the Torah, hold that we cannot attach special status to one “good” over another. Tolerance and pluralism are the ultimate principles of that alien culture. Since followers of that culture cannot determine with certainty what evil is, they cannot eradicate it from the world. Clearly, tolerance and psychological flexibility regarding (almost) all views and lifestyles are their philosophical darling. For them, almost absolute liberty and freedom transcend all else. Included in this is a person's freedom and right to do whatever he pleases with his life so long as it does not “harm his fellow man”. Clearly, this approach is a disgusting philosophical abomination to G-d and Israel. G-d, the Creator, fashioned a world that rests on truth, an exact, defined truth, determined by Him. The world was created to put G-d's clear, precise ideas and attributes into practice, and whoever seeks to differ with them imperils his soul. It is not man who determines his path on this earth. He is not free to choose whatever lifestyle he pleases without facing the consequences – bitter punishment from His father in Heaven.

The Torah treats with contempt the idea of man having freedom over his body and his life. Our sages comment on the verse, “The tablets were the tablets of G-d, and the writing was the writing of G-d, graven [charut] on the tablets.” (Ex. 32:16): “Read not charut, 'graven', but cherut, 'freedom'. The only free man is the one who studies Torah” (Avot 6:2). A person is not free, he is not at liberty to act however he pleases. He is bound by the yoke of Heaven, the fetters of our holy Torah. Only by agreeing to serve G-d and accept His yoke does he become free. This alone liberates him from the empty bestiality which enslaves him to his own needs, to his own selfish ego, to abominable lust.G-d does not recognize man's right to do as he pleases as long as he does not harm his fellow man. G-d established that man's life does not belong to him. Man was commanded to live and given a path to follow. Not only is he forbidden to harm his fellow man. But he is forbidden to harm himself. As long as a person opposes his Maker, he harms himself. He takes his own soul, committing spiritual suicide, and he is not free to act this way. Life itself is not man's personal property. G-d blew into man the breath of life only so he would lead a well-defined life of goodness. As our sages said (Avot 4:29), “Perforce you were born and perforce you live.” If a person says, “Since I was created against my will, if I do not wish to live I have a right to commit suicide,” G-d declares that man is not free either to live as he wishes or to die however he likes. Regarding one who commits suicide, our sages said (Semachot – Avel Rabbati 2:1): We do not eulogize him, but we stand in line for him and say the blessing for mourners, to show respect for the living. As a rule, whatever shows respect for the living we do, but nothing beyond that. Rambam (Hilchot Avel 1:11) and Tur (Yoreh Deah 345) ruled the same way. Thus we learn that even a man's life is not in his own hands, let alone his lifestyle.

A person is granted free will, and he has the right and duty to choose goodness and life and to loath evil, defilement and death. If, of his own free will, he chooses evil and defiles himself, G-d will not help him to avoid evil by closing the door to evil. Rather, G-d opens the way for him to do what he wants. It says in Yoma 39a: If a person defiles himself a little bit, Heaven will defile him a lot. If he does so on earth, he will be defiled from Heaven. If he does so in this world, he will be defiled in the World-to-Come. The Rabbis learned, “Make yourselves holy and remain sanctified” (Lev. 11:44): If a person sanctifies himself a little bit, Heaven will sanctify him a lot. If he does so on earth... That is what is meant by “Heaven gives him an opening”. The more he defiles himself and sins, the more his defilement and sin become habit, and ultimately second nature. All this applies to the Jew, and all the more so to the non-Jew. Moreover, if a non-Jew profanes G-d's name by reviling and humiliating a Jew, and he refuses to desist, then when the time of redemption and revenge arrives, G-d will not only open the way for him to continue, but will even entice him to do so, for his fate has already been sealed. Certainly, if Gog announces that he is accepting the yoke of Heaven and submitting to G-d, and he subjugates himself to G-d and Israel, thereby bringing the world the great and final Kiddush Hashem, G-d will certainly let him repent in this way. Yet, as long as he does not do this, as long as he and the world continue in arrogant chilul Hashem, G-d will set the time for His revenge and, then, will entice him into receiving his punishment.

Rambam explains in Hilchot Teshuva 6:3: [...] Why then did G-d address him [Pharaoh] through Moses, saying “Send out Israel and repent,” when He had already made it clear that He knew Pharaoh would not send them out, as it says, “I realize that you and your subjects still do not fear G-d” (Ex. 9:30); and, “The only reason I let you survive was to show you My strength” (Ex. 9:16)? It was to inform mankind that when G-d prevents the sinner from repenting, the sinner cannot repent, but must die for the wicked deeds he performed previously of his own free will. It was so with Sichon. In accordance with his sins, he was denied repentance: “The L-rd your G-d hardened his spirit and made his heart firm (Deut. 2:30). The same applies to the Canaanites. In accordance with their abominations, G-d denied them repentance until they waged war against Israel: “It was the L-rd's doing to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might destroy them utterly” (Joshua 11:20).

Here we learn a major principle of free choice regarding a wicked non-Jew who profanes G-d's name. An evildoer can submit to G-d in one of two ways. First, he can repent and crown G-d King, accept G-d's sovereignty and subjugate himself to G-d and mitzvot. Clearly, such repentance is appropriate and desirable, and G-d will not prevent his submitting in this way. The second way is for him to submit, not out of repentance and acceptance of G-d's yoke, but only out of fear and weakness. Certainly, this does not constitute sufficient repentance from his wickedness and Chilul Hashem, for until he rises and proclaims openly that Hashem is G-d and King, bending his knee before Him, G-d's name is not sanctified in the world. Therefore, if his whole submission is out of weakness and fear, he will still deserve punishment and revenge. G-d will, therefore, harden his heart so that he does not submit out of fear. Thus, G-d hardened Pharaoh's heart, because Pharaoh never accepted the yoke of G-d's kingdom. By the same token, G-d did not let him escape his sin and punishment through mere fear, but hardened his heart, so that G-d's name would be sanctified. It will be similar with Gog, who will stand firm in his chilul Hashem, and the time of Kiddush Hashem will arrive. It thus says, “I will bring you against My land, O Gog, before their eyes” (Ezek. 38:16). [The ensuing punishment and revenge we find described in this week's Haftarah]: “I alone have trodden a wine press, not a man from the nations was with Me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in My wrath, and their lifeblood spurted out on My garments, so I soiled all my garments. For a day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redemption has come...” (Isaiah 63:3,4) This is the greatest, most terrifying Kiddush Hashem there can be, and it is this which will make all the nations accept G-d's sovereignty.

"And If the Jews Won't Understand the Message..."

23 Elul 5774


Communication with Binyamin
Jerusalem,  25 Menachem Av 5774 

"And If the Jews Won't Understand the Message..."

I want to tell you all: We have just one thing - and that is, our connection with HKB"H. There's nothing more real than this. Not our friends, and not husbands and not wives, and not our children. Everything varies from lifetime to lifetime. But, one thing remains eternally, and that is - our connection with HKB"H. We are the children - and He is the Father. We are His people - and He is the Almighty. We are just the receivers of the Truth - and everything is from His Torah. There's nothing else.

And that's all we need to learn from history, from Adam HaRishon until today, and until the geulah shleimah. This is what Hashem wants to teach us: 'There's nothing besides Him'! There's nothing. We have nothing - only our connection with Him. Not with our houses, not with our cars, not with our hobbies, not with our job, not with any relative, and not with our friends. It's all temporary and will disappear. What will remain - it's just us and HKB"H. Nothing more.

And whoever understands this, and learns it, and internalizes it, and it becomes a part of him, and he's sure of it a million percent - he gets the most spiritual enjoyment straight from HKB"H. And only a person like this will get through the troubles that will come upon us, Hashem yishmor, in the near future, and which have already begun. A person like this will be able to get through all of these troubles, and come out with a smile on his face, straight into the World-to-Come of Mashiach.

And the remainder of the real Jews who don't feel this, Hashem will bring them to much suffering, until they will understand that ayn od milevado. That's that. "Ayn od milevado!"  And when we will arrive to the world of Mashiach - this will be our life, without questions, without materialism to confuse us. And it will be for us all that we need. But, we will only want our connection with HKB"H. There will be no other goal in life, only this thing: to reach more truth, and more truth, and more truth, without end. For eternity.
_________________________

Question: The question is, how do we reach this relationship, this feeling?

Answer: I can't tell you exactly. I can only tell you once more: nothing belongs to us - not the people around us, not the relatives around us, not houses, not one material thing, and not one personal relationship. Only HaKadosh Baruch Hu. And if you want a connection with HKB"H - then, please, make a connection. Seclude yourselves, speak to Him. And you see that if you speak and request from Him - there's an answer. And it doesn't take a lot of time until the answer arrives, usually.

Question: Which means that we need more and more to cut ourselves off from other things...

Answer: Detach oneself from all the emotions. Emotions - that's the hardest thing. And it's full of the Evil Inclination, but we need to detach, to neutralize these emotions. We need to love our children, and our friends, and etc - but to understand that this is temporary.

Question: A synagogue was destroyed in the shelling, and also, there were fatalities,  what's the message?

Answer: Very clear. First thing, Tzahal needs to do teshuvah. Second thing, the government needs to do teshuvah. Third thing, all the people need to do teshuvah. To understand that now, they are alive only by a miracle, not more and not less. And if it's a miracle - then only need to say to HKB"H: 'Thank you'. Not to Tzahal, and not to 'Iron Dome', and not to anything. Only to HKB"H.

Question: And the fact that it was a synagogue that was  hit - what does that mean?

Answer: A synagogue - if shrapnel or a rocket fell there - then it's very clear. Apparently, our prayers are not so real. And if, G-d forbid, G-d forbid, the situation will worsen - then woe to us, if we don't get the message.

Question: Chareidim, mostly, won't get the message, so for whom are we waiting?

Answer: I believe that every true Jew - will get the message.
__________________________

The communication continues with Aharal'e:

I want to say that if the Jews will not do teshuvah and won't understand what Binyamin wrote, then Hashem will bring them to this understanding, Hashem yishmor, that they will understand that ayn od milevado. Nothing. And if, G-d forbid, HKB"H begins to show us that we have nothing, just Him - then, it won't be easy. It'll be the most difficult.

I advise Am Yisrael to do teshuvah quickly. All this war - it's the beginning. It's just the beginning. There are still more things that are about to be fulfilled. And it's worth it for us to understand now that 'there's nothing besides Him', that He gives us everything and He's the Almighty. 

And if the government, including the Chareidim there, don't understand this - Woe to them. Woe it will be to them. And whoever believes that Tzahal is "the Almighty", G-d forbid - Woe to them. And whoever believes that the health funds can restore health to everyone - Woe to them. And whoever believes that the State will protect the residents - Woe to them. And woe to us with all the falsehood, woe to us with all the sheker.

We need only to focus on one thing: On Hashem. He's the Almighty, He - and only He - is ours. He's the Abba, He's the Imma, He's the children, He's everything. We are His, exclusively His. But, there are more things that are about to be, and we need to be with Hashem. To be with Hashem. Do you understand?...

Moishela: "I Have Been Given Permission to Reveal to You Future Events"

22 Elul 5774


BS"D

Discussion with Moishela (with his family)
A Handicapped child
16 Elul 5774 (Sept 10, '14)

I Have Been Given Permission to Reveal to you Future Events

Oy Mommy, Oy Tatti, what can I tell you? I’m sorry that I have made you in the last few weeks a little bit unnerved, but I must admit that the world is changing at the speed of sound, and from day to day or from minute to minute, we don’t know what’s going to be. We used to live in a world that was at least semi organized. We could predict, sometimes anyway, what the next day or the next minute might bring. Today we are all confused, never knowing where another tragedy, Shelo Naida, another bang will come from. Tatti, Mommy, the next few weeks are going to be very, very frightening. The next few weeks will be full of changes that will make our heads spin, changes all over the world, frightening changes and also frightening happenings.

By the time we get to Rosh Hashana we are going to all be in a somber mood, a mood for Davening very hard, for begging Hashem to save us and declaring Him our King. So we must prepare ourselves not to be too blown away by the happenings of the near future and always remember the only way to steady ourselves and keep ourselves in a state that we can overcome spiritually and physically the times to come, is by holding on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu, so-to-speak, holding on to the rope, spiritual rope that connects us Am Yisroel to our Creator. So as I said, in the next few weeks until Rosh Hashana there will be amazing new news for all of us, for the whole world and there will be news that people will not understand. They will stand and wonder what in the world is going on, but as time goes on we will realize what the plan of the evil ones really is.

After Rosh Hashana during the Aseres Yimei Teshuva will be a time of gathering our strengths together and crying to Hashem like we have never cried before. By the time that Yom Kippur comes around, I’m afraid that our tears might have been spent already from worrying what’s going to be, and we will try to squeeze out a few more in order to try to save ourselves. By the time Succos comes we will be quite worn out for our efforts, and I believe that Succos, at least for a short time, will bring a semblance of balance, a semblance of joy in the Yom Tov, but Simchas Torah will bring us back to the cruel reality, and we will dance with the Torah with tears in our eyes. We will hold the Torah close to us so it can’t separate from us, so we won’t separate from it. We will dance and we will dance and we will beg Hashem through our dancing to always keep us close to Him, and we will keep the Torah close to us, and when Simchas Torah is over the real wars will begin.

Am Yisroel you know that there is something in my words. In the last two or three years you have seen such crazy tragic things happening. We know that the world has become an insane asylum and as Harav Dessler put it the people taking care of the inmates are the inmates themselves. So it’s a world of the mentally ill. There are some Jews which do try to separate themselves from the Sheker, from the lie and on those few Jews the world of the Geula Shelaima will be built by Hashem. We Am Yisroel must hold on and never let go.

We will go farther. After Succos, Simchas Torah the world will become so so different, so horribly different that it will be absolutely unrecognizable. The only thing we will recognize is our Kesher with Hashem. The only thing that will be real will be our Kesher with Hashem, His Torah, and His Mitzvos.

Am Yisroel, the ones in Chutz La'aretz, the ones outside of Eretz Yisroel, pack your bags if you can. Pack your bags and come. Do so. It’s not an Aveirah. Coming to Eretz Yisroel is a great Zechus, but don’t come if you don’t really want to go higher in your Yiddishkeit. Don’t come just to save your lives, because it won’t work. You have to believe, believe that Hashem is Hakol Yachol. Ain Od Milvado. You have to believe it with all your heart and your soul. You have to believe that there is nothing greater than our Torah. You have to believe that Moshiach is going to come and there is going to be Techias Hameisim and you have to believe in every single one of the Yud Gimmel Ikrim. You must believe in that. That is your ticket to eternity. You must with all your heart and soul believe in it.

After Simchas Torah there is going to be a giant Birur and that Birur is going to be very hard, but it won’t be hard for those who understand the Truth, for those who cling to Hashem, for those who cling to the Truth. It won’t be hard. So please Am Yisroel please, please if you feel up to it, if you feel that you want to rise spiritually, come to Eretz Yisroel, not Medinas Yisroel, that’s going to fall very soon, but Eretz Yisroel, come to Eretz Yisroel, and even though it could be very difficult and even though you don’t know where you are going to live and even though you don’t know where your income will come from, still you are better off here than there if you truly want to be close to Hashem. If you truly want, for spiritual reasons to come close to Hakodosh Boruch Hu, to actually greet Moshiach Tzidkainu then come to Eretz Yisroel now. Anyone with Gashmiusdik ideas about the Geula, forget it. Stay where you are.

I also want to reiterate that every Jewish soul will be saved. Every Jewish soul that stood at Har Sinai and said Na’ase Venishma, we will do and we will say, every Jewish soul will be saved. Hashem will make sure that even if a Jew thinks he doesn’t accept Emes, in the end he will. Hashem will force him to accept Emes, and he will become a great believer, but he will suffer on the way, but those who are close already, those who believe with all their hearts and souls in Hakol Yachol, in Hakodosh Boruch Hu, in the Ribbono Shel Olam, they will not have difficulties almost at all. It might be frightening to see what’s happening, but they themselves will not suffer. So Am Yisroel, we are coming to Rosh Hashana. Please do Teshuva. Please do Teshuva now. Get your heads straight. Get your minds on the right things. Teach your children how to react when the terrible wars really start. They have started already, but the really bad part is soon to come. Teach your children how to hold on to Hashem. Teach your children what reality is, what the Geula Shelaima means, what the Bais Hamikdosh means, what the Korbanos mean. Teach them not to be afraid because Hashem is Hakol Yachol. He took us out of Mitzrayim, which was an amazing, amazing Ness, and He will take us out of this terrible, terrible Golus and bring us to the Geula Shelaima.

I want to tell you something else Mommy and Tatti. I love you all very much. I know how much you are doing for me and how you care for me. I know I sometimes make you both a bit upset with my moods. I go a bit crazy myself with the double life that I have been living. One part of my life, a little boy with little boy needs, and the other part of my life I am a greater person a much more adult person. So please I ask you Mechila for anything I have done to make it difficult for you and tell you how much I appreciate how you’ve taken care of me, and how I imagine you will continue to take care of me up to when Moshiach comes. At that time I won’t need your help anymore, Be’ezras Hashem. I know that very soon we are going to see the Truth. So don’t get discouraged and don’t get taken down. Just know that all of our troubles are going to disappear and really you shouldn’t be worried about all these things that are happening in the house, buying and selling apartments, taking care of me, and all the other grandchildren who have this problem, that problem, or the other problem, or my aunts and my uncles that have all kinds of problems. Just know that it’s almost over, almost over.

To Am Yisroel I want to tell you that when we come to Chanukah we are going to have very great spiritual happenings that will remind us of the Maccabim, that will remind us of our greatness, will remind us of our Bais Hamikdosh, even though we will be very frightened and we will be such a tiny little group surrounded by huge amounts of wild people with terrible weapons, but still our hearts will be full of joy because we will feel again what the Maccabim felt even though we will be terribly afraid. It will seem impossible to ever get out of that situation, but Hashem will help us and we will, and after that will come Asara B’teves and we will mourn like we never mourned before. We will cry and beg like we never did on Tisha B’av, beg and beg Hashem to rebuild our Bayis our Bais Hamikdosh, and not let the Goyim do the most outlandish thing of destroying the Dome of the Rock and instead building Chas Veshalom there a temple to the Avodah Zorah of their new Religion Chas Vesholom, Yemach Shemam Vezichram. That is their plan to build on top of Har Hamoriah, Har Habayis a temple to the Avodah Zorahs, the worst Avodah Zorahs.

Then we will come to Purim and we will beg Hashem to save us from Haman and we will have a Haman here, a Haman that we will have to be saved from and we will have to fight, fight our fears, beg Hashem to save us from this awful terrible horrific person and his armies and his police. We will have to beg very hard. Hashem will save us.

He will save us, and then will come Pesach and we will be a tattered bunch of tired people when we sit around the Seder table, with Matzoh and wine miraculously provided for us by Hashem and we will beg Hashem to save us. We will beg Hashem. We will beg Hashem to bring the Geula Shelaima. On Shvii Shel Pesach we will hear the Shofar. We will hear the Shofar and on Leil Haseder each house will see Eliyahu Hanavi, all the Jews that are Emesdik will see him and it will give us strength, but it still won’t be the time of redemption. I can’t go on farther than that to explain, but when we see Eliyahu Hanavi we will know that very soon this terribly long Golus will be over, and we will be finally free. From that moment on, there will be more and greater wars. There will be false prophets and false messiahs, but we will hold on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu and to the seed of Dovid Hamelech, to our Moshiach Tzidkainu, our true Moshiach. He will reveal himself and we Motzai Shviis will walk into the Bais Hamikdosh and be Makriv Korbonos and be happy and be dancing with the greatest joy ever felt in the whole world, even though around us two thirds of the world will have been destroyed, and very few Yidden and even fewer Goyim will survive.

I have been given permission to reveal to you these future events in order to give Am Yisroel strength and courage to get through these very difficult times. I beg Am Yisroel from the bottom of my heart to feel that every Jew is responsible for the other Jew. Every true Jew feels responsibility for another Jew, feels that he wants to do Chessed for another Jew. That’s how you know he’s really a Jew. I love Am Yisroel so much that just saying it makes me cry, and I beg you please make it easy on yourselves. Come back to Hashem. Take away the Gashmius which is so senseless, all the toys, all the adult stupid toys, all the videos, all the things that make us waste our time and instead put our efforts into growing spiritually. The best way to grow spiritually is when times are difficult. We don’t want times to be difficult, but we must use the future hard times to help us grow. Please let us put our hearts and our souls and our strength, into growing even though around us will be death and destruction. Please keep growing. Please keep coming closer and closer to Hakodosh Boruch Hu.


Q: Do we have to be afraid of the ISIS?

A: That group of murderers were created by the Reshoim to frighten the world. They have no real tangible strength. It’s all a farce and the Europeans definitely don’t want them around and probably will try to get rid of them as fast as possible. However they will go underground and they will cause destruction in the world because they as individuals can blow up hundreds of places in Europe, America, not only the Mideast. As an army they aren’t an army. They are just a group of vicious people. They are using the scare tactics of chopping peoples’ heads off, Lo Aleinu, or murdering them in other terrible ways to make people afraid, but don’t pay attention to them. It’s all not something real. Yes people are killed and they are very vicious, but they have no strength and Hashem will destroy them.

There is nothing to add right now. I’m giving you kind of a preview. Up to now we the autistics, have written many things and they’ve all come true, however, we never really gave a timeframe because people still had to schlep through many years without this kind of Chizuk. There was no point in giving a timeframe, because people would say, “Oh well we still have ten years, so let’s just party until then. We have time to do Teshuvah!” There’s no time now, so let’s do it now now, now!

There is one more thing I want to say. In the next near future the State of Israel, the Medina is going to crumble. It’s already crumbling from its own decadence. That is what’s going to happen IY”H. Very soon the chaos is going to rage here until the Goyim take over. Then Moshiach will take control from the Goyim and the Geula Shelaima will begin Be’ezras Hashem.

I don’t have anything else to write now.

"Don't Let Go of the Rope" - Questions and Answers (Conclusion)

21 Elul 5774

Communication with Binyamin - Questions and Answers concluded
 23 Menachem Av 5774

Question: What control they have in the world! Really amazing...


Answer: They have control, but then again they don't. They have until a particular point. There's another thing, that among themselves - they don't have so much 'shalom bayit' with one another. Good, we'll see how it works out...

Question: The street is the scariest. The falsehood is getting more stifling from day to day...

Answer: Right. Good, what can I say, it's something that is simply unbelievable that we've reached a situation so low in the whole world. And to see the Jews, that they are going after all This World, with all their restaurants, and with all their immodest clothes, and with this that also the Chareidim have all kinds of sins with modesty, G-d help us, that never was, certainly among the Chareidim, and if so - then some one individual who wanted to run away from HKB"H. But, today, it's possible to be 'Chareidi' - and produce a mamzer. The street - is very dangerous. And Hashem is sending us the Arabs, who are sometimes stabbing people with knives, because He wants to tell us that the street is not for us at all.

Question: And all those vacations, that people run to them like they're gripped with a ravenous hunger...

Answer: Yes, all the vacations. Before, there were 'bombs' upon our heads, now they've forgotten all the bombs, and they're running with jeeps and swimming pools and etc. Tragic, tragic, all the swimming pools of the Chareidim, the open ones.

Question: On the other hand - now, all the big lies are exposed and it's a thing that helps to open eyes and to see truth...

Answer: Right, but we're not always understanding what's truth and what's not. Only someone who is close to Hashem, who makes efforts to be close to Hashem, and is not submerged too much within materialism. We have to have basic materialism in order to live, but when we become submerged deep within the materialism - it damages for us the vision of the truth and we become dependent on these things, on these toys. But, whoever is closer to Hashem, he has more of a chance to see the truth as it is. He's not afraid to reveal the lie. He's not afraid that he won't have all his materialism. He wants to rid himself from it. And the lie with the Zionists - it's only materialism, there is nothing to this idealism. Only money. And all 'This World' - it all depends on money. And without money - they have no possibility to be with them. They have to at least be like them.

Question: But, also those who aren't friends with them, nevertheless, are creating a designation in common with their lifestyle...

Answer: Right, but it all belongs to or is connected to materialism. And all their thoughts are also materialistic, it's the materialistic look of the world. There's no spirituality in it. None. It's all just materialism. And there's no materialism without money. It's all gashmiut-gashmiut-gashmiut. 'Taste-of-life' with coca-cola, with a 'hechsher'. And in America, it's the peak of it. Exactly. 

[Devash: It sounds to me as if they are alluding here to "religious Zionists" and I'd just refer you to the fact that Naftali Bennett is the head of the National Religious political party - "Jewish Home" - and is a multi-millionaire whose vision of a prosperous Middle East is not far from that of Shimon Peres. And his main argument for herding Chareidim into "full employment" is for a flourishing economy - in other words, monetary gain.]

Question: And all the trips that are about 'holy purity'...

Answer: Trips, trips, trips, all over the world. It doesn't matter if it's dangerous now, nothing matters. The main thing is: The Trips. They're ready to sacrifice their lives for the sake of trips! For the sake of materialism. What world-class stupidity. So, that's it, what's to be done, what's to be done... This is really a very hard descent. But, there will be Jews who will rise up.

Question: How did this terrible fall happen?! It's terrible...

Answer: You understand that it's like with Eliyahu HaNavi and the altars, and that the fire has fallen on the altar of the priests of Ba'al, as it's written in books, and that's exactly what is happening now. And Baruch Hashem, because it shows that we are very close to the redemption.

Question: Were we not cast into a situation like this now so that we would need their defense against the Arab missiles?

Answer: Look. I will only tell you, the situation is the situation, and we don't need the Zionists in order to 'help us'. We don't need anything. We trust in Hashem, and the Zionists will do what they will do and the Arabs will do what they are doing. And that's the situation that they have created. And they created it with intention - the first Zionists. And that's everything - their program to bring the final solution, to finish religion, and Jews, G-d forbid. And this is the whole plan of Medinat Yisrael - to turn it into a country like all the countries. And because of it, Lapid can say that he cares if his children will marry gentiles... And it's exactly going with all their idealism, that exactly thus will they finish all of Judaism and the Jews, G-d forbid. They're making them all so many not-true-converts that already it's all gentile. But, Hashem won't allow it!

Question: For sure, the government wants to bring here foreign soldiers...

Answer: Of course, they will bring foreign soldiers. Without a doubt. And with it, we will be a while under the rule-of-gentiles, and the truth is, we are already under the rule of the gentiles. What, they're not gentiles?! Don't they treat us worse than gentiles?! An army that requests, that invites the wicked to come and to participate in the army, how can you send a young man to the army that requests that all these 'feigelach' will come?!...

Question: Now, because of the 'victors' and their arrogance - it's only made it more dangerous, exactly like in the time of the birionim who fought with the Romans, it actually brought the cruel destruction finally...

Answer: Right. There's no possibility, since they began, establishing the State, there's no possibility to stop it. It will roll around and thus Hashem will make it, and it will roll around - until it reaches the end. Hashem is already putting an end to it. 

People don't understand. We don't at all need for them to be 'our protection'. We have HKB"H, and He can kill all the haters - and finished. But, the average-Jewish-Chareidi looks and says: 'Wow, they're all around us and they're so strong! So, of course, we need an army, because how will we survive without an army...,' And the real-Jew says: 'There's already nothing I can do, I can't stop Tzahal, and I can't stop the Arabs, so Hashem will save us. And that's all.'

Question: So, really, all this reality is only bringing us to leave all these things, and to be occupied exclusively with coming closer to Hashem...

Answer: That's it. To be close to Hashem.

Question: What can be said about the tragic disaster that happened here with the Yerushalmi avreich Rav Wallis, z"l, on the eve of the Tisha b'Av fast...

Answer: Good, clearly, clearly it is a message to everyone. It's a message that came to say to everyone where we need to be. He was a true warrior for the sake of the truth. He was killed, and Hashem forced all those who were against him to come and to tell good things about him, and to appear by the masses at his funeral, even though they were very against what he did.

Question: But, despite this, there were those who continued with the talk and the stories against him...

Answer: I understand that they said various things. But, it doesn't matter, Hashem forced them to come and escort him to where he needed to arrive, they had no choice. In any case, it was very difficult for them, and it made them really bad to get there, and even with all the stories that they told - it wasn't enough. They hated him so much. But, they had to stand there like good children and give him honor. And for them, it was really like eating gravel...

Question: We're approaching Rosh Hashanah. Once, you all said about the year 5775 that it's after everything...  'תשע"ה' is like 'תשעה' (The letters representing the year 5775 spell out the number 'nine'.) - nine months of pregnancy...

Answer: That's what I said. Very clear, that we will have the Beit HaMikdash, b'ezrat Hashem... On motzaei shvi'it... It's all a process... And the Mashiach will come, and I hope to see him more with G-d's help and afterwards on motzaei shvi'it, everything needs to be built already, with G-d's help. That's what we said. I can't say more precisely, because Hashem is the One who decides, and He can decide something else suddenly, but it's close-close, no doubt at all.

"Don't Let Go of the Rope" - Questions and Answers (Pt 1)

17 Elul 5774

Communication with Binyamin - Questions and Answers
 23 Menachem Av 5774

Question: You said that "Hashem will swing the rope." Does that mean all of the suffering that a person goes through with health and livelihood, etc., every one with his package...?


Answer: Yes. Without a doubt. For sure that's its meaning. Hashem will bring, and He's already bringing, many trials, very many trials. Each according to his need. But, we must not complain or be depressed, and we should be happy that this long and bitter exile - is almost finished.


Question: What's the explanation of the expression: 'Don't let go of the rope'? How do we not let go of the rope?...


Answer: We have to think all the time: 'Ayn od milevado.' (There's nothing besides Him) That He is the Almighty and that He makes us all these troubles for our good, and the good of our families. And it doesn't matter how hard it is - it's all for our good. Do not forget it. To know that all that Hashem does - it's for good. And that's the rope. It's what we trust in 200%! More than 100%. Double 100% - 200%. Depend upon HKB"H completely. He's the Almighty. Depend on Him. And we're ready every moment to do His will, all of His will. And that's what will hold us.


Question: What will be the end here in Israel with the Arabs?


Answer: Don't worry about Hamas... Don't worry about a thing, just to be close to Hashem. That's it. That's your whole job. Don't be afraid of them - only fear Hashem. To want all the time, all the time - only to do the will of Hashem


Question: What is amazing is how the government here, despite all the complications, they haven't forgotten for a moment the war to finish off Yiddishkeit... recruitment, the Core program, etc. - all this is at the head of their list of priorities...


Answer: We said that after Shavuot everything will go fast, and there won't be a quiet moment, already after Pesach we said this, that it will go one thing after another-after another-after another and it will continue until there will be an explosion, 'lo stam'.

Question: What did you mean, Binyamin, regarding this Islamic group in Iraq, we do not comprehend who they are, so who are they really?


Answer: They are evildoers who returned to life in our generation, who reincarnated to our generation. And these, great evildoers, want to bring in a world of fear. And when there is an army that takes off the heads of two hundred men - it scares the world. And when they say that the same people are taking over more, slowly-slowly over it all - it scares them even more.

Question: Are they connected also to "The New World Order"?...

Answer: They're connected to Al Qaeda, and they're connected to The New World Order, and they're the ones who created them! And it didn't pop up 'from underground', and they didn't appear, all of them from within some tunnel... They came. Someone prepared them for war. Someone gave them the weapons. It didn't just start. This is a group who prepared them exactly for this job: to scare everyone.

Question: What are you saying?!... Why, America itself is fighting them...? They're really shooting and killing them...

Answer: It's all a show! They're experts at it. Always, they create something and afterwards, they make the show, what they call in English: 'double-cross'. They have no problem... There are evildoers and there are worse evildoers.

Question: Also, in Ukraine there is a serious mess...

Answer: Ukraine. Another point that can bring the third world war. And it's going to get worse. And it's really-really not simple to travel to Uman this year. But, there will be those who will travel, and I don't know if there will be problems or not. Antisemitism - of course, it will be becaue the Ukrainians are 'AA-grade' antisemites. They're Jew-haters. And I heard that now they've put a big cross in the place where they do 'taschlich' there. So, it's impossible to pray there.

Question: It's not the first time that they've placed avodah zarah there. Already centuries ago, a big cross stood exactly there, and all Jews who refused to bow - were brutally murdered al kidush Hashem, Jews by the tens of thousands were slaughtered there al kidush Hashem...

Answer: Once, Jews were ready, were happy, to be killed al kidush Hashem. But, today - we don't have that much strength...

Question: What do you think about the ups and downs of the changeable relationship between the United States and Israel...

Answer: Everything - it's a show. And the government, part of the goverment of the State of Israel, it's also part of the show. It's not worthwhile even to think about it, because it's every bit of it a show. And there are sometimes things that pop up, that's real, but they use it for the sake of making fear or something else.

Question: The demonstrations that are now in America, will they progress?

Answer: All these demonstrations in America - shows. Really, performances. Because they want to rule over America, and they want to create fear. And they're bringing the police with all their equipment, their innovative equipment. What do you say about the new acquisition of America: guillotines...! They're bringing it now to America, guillotines! Have you heard of a thing like this?!... In the United States, trains carrying people to 'FEMA' concentration camps - they have inside there guillotines! It's hard to believe, but now, the American government, officially, ordered the guillotines for the sake of killing people who received the death penalty for murder or another crime* - so now, they will kill them with guillotines! For what purpose is this thing...?!  It's simply just for the sake of scaring people.

Question: What's wrong with the 'electric chair'...

Answer: Ho. The electric chair - its time has already passed. And it really was very bad. But, now, for a long time they've been doing it with injection, to show that they are better people, that they're doing it humanely, without pain. But, now they want to go back to being bad, but much worse than before...

Question: Probably dreaming about the French revolution...

Answer: Yes, that's right.

Question: Surely, they deserve an 'Oscar' award...

Answer: Of course... They control Hollywood, it's not without purpose - they're in control there in Hollywood. And because of it, they take out all these movies about all this craziness that they dream of doing. And there's more than one movie about creatures who come from outside the planet to rule over the world. There were many movies like these. And they're taking out now many movies 'like-real'. Not like a story. Someone to film... really Hollywood.

Question: Big stars...

Answer: I wouldn't say 'stars'. They're evildoers. Evildoers. They're the filth of the world, they're the sleaze. They're with the Satan, may his name and memory be erased.

Question: What do you say about the dangerous pandemic outbreak in the world now?

Answer: But, meanwhile, baruch Hashem, most of the epidemics were more talk than epidemic... very frightening. That's what they're introducing: fear-and more fear-and more fear. I, with this sickness from Africa, shelo neida, I have the feeling that they want to sell a lot of vaccines... The problem is that it's also possible to die from the vaccine itself... They also use it to gather information about people, to grab control...

Judge Pushes For Guillotine, Firing Squads: We Shouldn't Mask 'Brutal, Savage' Executions

Rumor: Federal government purchased 30,000 guillotines

Parshat Ki Tavo 5774

17 Elul 5774
Erev Shabbat Kodesh

Parashat Ki Tavo – Rebuke, With All My Love – Rabbi Meir Kahane


And Hashem has distinguished you today to be for Him a treasured people, as He spoke to you, and to observe all of His commandments, and to make you supreme over all the nations that He made, for praise, for renown and for splendor, and so that you will be a holy people to Hashem, your G-d, as He spoke.(Deut. 26:18-19)
But it will be that if you do not hearken to the voice of Hashem, your G-d, to observe, to perform all His commandments and all His decrees that I command you today, then all these curses will come upon you and overtake you... (Deut. 28:15)

There is only one logical, rational reason for a person to be proud of his being a Jew: the Torah. As our sages said (Torat Kohanim, Bechukotai, 8:11): “What remains to them that has not become vile and loathsome? Were not all the fine gifts that were given to them taken away? If not for the Torah that remained with them, they would be no different from the nations at all.” This is the secret of Israel's uniqueness and exclusiveness. Only this Torah hallows, exalts and sets Israel apart from all the nations. All the rest, nationalism and national pride, are nothing but a meaningless farce. Yet, since G-d chose Israel to be His holy people and to fulfill His Torah, they were granted extraordinary love and a special status, and they became the mate and partner, so to speak, of Him Whose word brought the world into being.

The partnership between G-d and Israel is an unparalleled partnership of love. Since the greatest, most exalted partnership that we know is that of lovers, man and woman, King Solomon compared the partnership of G-d and Israel to that of a man and woman. This is the meaning of the words, “My beloved is mine and I am his” (Song of Songs 2:16): two lovers, one in partnership with the other. I am his and he is mine – this is the most lofty partnership there can be, for each gives to the other rather than each taking from the other. Our sages said (Shir HaShirim Rabbah, Ibid.): “My beloved is mine and I am his”: He is for me a G-d, and I am for Him a nation. He is for me a G-d, as it says, “I am the L-rd your G-d” (Ex. 20:2), and I am for Him a nation, as it says, “Listen to Me, O My people,; give ear unto Me, O My nation” (Isaiah 51:4). He is for me a Father and I am for Him a son. He is for me a Father, as it says, “For You are our Father” (Ibid. 63:16); and, “For I became a Father of Israel” (Jer. 31:8), and I am for Him a son, as it says, “Israel is My son, My firstborn” (Ex. 4:22); and, “You are children of the L-rd your G-d” (Deut. 14:1). Israel are called G-d's children; the rest of the nations are not. The Jew is an actual son of G-d, his Father in Heaven, whereas all the rest are not G-d's children, but only His handiwork. As R. Akiva said (Avot 3:18), “ Beloved are Israel, for they were called G-d's children. Special Divine love was earmarked for them as a result.” Israel are the children of Him Whose word brought the world into existence, whereas all the rest are just G-d's handiwork. Special Divine love beyond that reserved for all the nations is earmarked for Israel.Love, respect and reverence for our fellow Jew, created in G-d's image and sanctified at Sinai as G-d's elect, is the duty of every single Jew, because he is a part of that chosen people. Every Jew must grow spiritually by showing love and respect for his fellow Jew. In that way, he expresses his esteem for someone holy and select, created in G-d's image and chosen at Sinai to be G-d's special treasure. In effect, he gains self- esteem as well.

Every Jew is a guarantor for the rest of the Jewish People, for all are bound together in one nation, holy and virtuous. Sotah 37b teaches, “For every single mitzvah in the Torah, forty-eight covenants were forged with each of the 603,550 [Jews in the desert]. Rashi comments, “Everyone of them became a guarantor for all his brethren.” Our sages also said (Shavuot 39a), “ All of Israel are guarantors for one another.” Later, G-d willing, we will view the other side of love and mutual responsibility, namely the mitzvah of rebuking our fellow Jew to restore him to the proper path. By such rebuke, we perform a great mitzvah and do our fellow Jew a great turn. Moreover, the mitzvah of arevut (mutual responsibility) which makes rebuke an obligation, is also the basis for G-d's collectively rewarding and punishing the Jewish People, since they are all one nation. Rebuke is a mitzvah of central importance for every Jew.

Ezekiel said (33:2-3,6): “When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man from among them and set him for their watchman; if when he sees the sword come upon the land and he blows the horn and warns the people... But if he sees the sword come and blows not the horn and the people be not warned, and the sword come and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."This is the mitzvah of tochachah, rebuke, standing before the nation and blowing the horn of truth. The mitzvah of imploring and rebuking the people is one aspect of accepting the yoke of Heaven. A person unwilling to rebuke others and speak the truth, whether out of fear, desire to flatter, genuine love or an inability to oppose the mainstream, and certainly out of refusal to accept the “harsh” truth of Halachah, as we shall see, rebels against G-d and rejects His yoke. Over and over, people try to justify their refusal with the argument that they “love their fellow Jew”, but such love is perverse. No love is more genuine than rebuke. It says, “Do not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor and not bear sin because of him.” (Lev. 19:17)Whoever does not rebuke, bears a grudge of hatred for the sinner, even if subconscious. This hatred grows, precisely because deep in his heart he recognizes his duty to rebuke the sinner and recognizes, as well, his own weakness, reflected in his refusal to do it. Whoever refuses to rebuke the sinner, leaves him vulnerable to the worst punishments of the afterlife [and may bring about collective punishment of Israel in this world, as well] Precisely he who rebukes the sinner and tries to bring him back on course, loves him and loves himself, as well.

In our own times, the alien culture has managed to make G-d into something inconsequential. Thus, on the one hand, heresy has proliferated, and on the other hand, many wicked people have devised a hypocritical approach whereby although they pay lip service to the existence of a higher power, they create it in their own image, as they wish to imagine it. The G-d of their making is indulgent. He neither demands exclusive allegiance nor takes revenge. He is tolerant and equates great and small, good and evil, light and darkness, bitter and sweet. Concepts of sin and punishment almost do not exist. After all, the idea of “sin” is exceedingly controversial, since such persons fly the flag of freedom of expression and deed – almost any deed. “Divine punishment”, in the eyes of worshipers of this culture, is a fanatical, extremist, even an eccentric and cruel concept. Therefore, whenever tragedy strikes such persons, they have not the least inclination to meditate, to examine and search their deeds. For this heresy, the Divine punishment, which advocates of this approach deny, comes closer and closer. G-d's thoughts are not their own. The flood of fire will come, the anger and revenge of G-d. Moreover, when an entire generation casts off its yoke, and chaos and anarchy come to the world, and the kingdom of G-d is the object of contempt, the destroying angel is given free reign... then the saintly are taken from the world, both as an atonement for the world and because they did not protest enough, and also – if the world's decree has already been sealed – so that they will not see the punishment.

[The very last sentence of this week's Haftarah links this to our time, which is the beginning of the redemption:] I am Hashem, in its time I will hasten it. (Is. 60:22) Redemption can come by one of two ways. If we merit it, through repentance and deeds worthy of it – especially faith and trust in G-d without fear of the non-Jew – it can come through G-d hastening it, quickly, immediately, “today, if we hearken to His voice.” Not only will it come quickly, but with glory and majesty, without the suffering or Messianic birthpangs of which both Ula and Rabbah said (Sanhedrin 98b), “Let it come without my seeing it.” If we do not merit this, however, then the Messiah will certainly come and the redemption with him, but only later on, “in its time.” This redemption will be accompanied, G-d forbid, by the terrible suffering of chevlei mashiach, Messianic birthpangs.
