Reversals

The world, as we know, is insane.  I clicked onto the COLLive website and there were two stories which prove just how ridiculous the world has become.   Russia loves us, America hates us.

Now because I can't stand to look at this man's face, I am not posting a photo, you will have to click the link to read it:  Kerry Attacks Israeli Government


And here we have Russia...


At a meeting with Russia's Chief Rabbi Berl Lazar, President Vladimir Putin said the Jewish nation exists because it guards authentic Judaism.

“I would like to extend my holiday greetings to you and to all of Russian Jewry. I wish you a happy Chanukah and all of the very best, along with your family and all of the Jews in Russia. I must say that there are very positive developments in Russia. New Synagogues and Jewish Centers are opening up, and I am thankful to you for that. I hope that our joint efforts will continue to thrive and progress.”

These were the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar at a private audience that was granted in honor of Chanukah at the Kremlin office in Moscow.
Later, the president told Rabbi Lazar: “There have been many nations who have come and gone. But the Jewish nation continues to exist, generation after generation for thousands of years. I am sure, that this is only because of their strict adherence to the Torah and its commandments. They pass on these traditions throughout the generations no matter what the circumstances.”

“Once again, I’d like to thank you for the development of Jewish communities, and lots of Jewish activities for all ages and in all areas, here in our country of Russia,” continued the president.

But why did Putin allow his government to vote yes to the UN resolution? It doesn't make sense at all.

I know, it's crazy, is he playing games?

He must know the state is a violation of Halacha..... the very thing he rightly credited with our preservation..... thus they voted correctly.

Very good question mg. Even more amazing is the fact that Russia has veto power !!
Can't Trump use his "luvvy duvvy" with Putin to get Putin to use Russia's veto power ?
What's all that tweet Trump sucking up to Israel after the vote about ?

I pity those who allow these people's shenanigans to brainwash them into categorizing Putin, Trump, Russia as friend and America, Obama, Kerry as enemy.

Devorah said...

Well there is no doubt at all that Obama and Kerry are not our friends. As for the rest, time will tell.

Anonymous, what do you mean the State is a violation of Halacha? Don’t you think that G–D knows the Halacha?

It's interesting that at Kerry's most recent speech he seemed to have said something about either you're a Jew or Democratic. (I'm just reading the headlines because I refuse to hear his voice or look at him). Isn't that what anti-semitism is all about? He's waking up the Jews in America. Why are so many of you in the Democrat party ie. liberal? It's like saying, Why have you Hellenized? Which path do you choose, or as the Maccabis said. Who is for H-Shem? I think H-Shem is sending this wakeup call to American Jews to ponder what they stand for, and for all Jews. We are like oil, we don't mix so well with the nations (ie United Nations). According to Jewish sources all over the place, anti-semitism is meant to stir us to tshuva. Maybe this is the last wake up call to American Jewry before Mashiach, Please G-d.

I also questioned why Trump didn't try to persuade Putin to veto the UN resolution.

Also, from Caroline Glick's most recent article, Obama is not going to stop at UN to hurt Isael

V. Putin is a very intelligent man. He has realised that whoever associates with the Jews will last/ survive. Those nations hating the Jews have disappeared, such as Amalek, Babylonians, etc. So, Putin saved Russia by being closed to the Jews.
Now he understands that the Jewish nation will survive at the End of Days. There are no better true friends to Yisrael today than India and Russia. They will be the winners.
Finally the Jews all over the world are getting this message.
But Amerika is still the most powerful force, it will attack Russia soon. She already has armed Yishmael and continues to do so orchestrating the Muslim invasion of Europe. The Hungarian PM Orban sounds the alarm, but almost none is listening in the UE. The wreath of Hashem is over their heads.

It's unlikely that D. Trump is able to undo the damage to Yisrael done in the last couple of years by the current Obama administration. It's unlikely that Trump will ever exercise the presidential function.
The allowing of arming of Iran and the arming the Middle East terrorists are two great sins the American nation has done. A man like Trump being aware of such transgrations against Yisrael will be overwhelmed by the development of events.
And now, a short war with Russia. Then, Hashem intervenes and wipes out the bloodthirsty nation that lived on continuous war for over 70 years.
Can Yisrael still be a friend of such a nation? By deserting Yisrael, America has no future.

I somehow agree with anonymous above. Whether it's on Putin's mind or not, it's obviously in Hashem's mind and hand.... But, it's obvious that Putin specifically respects jews 'because' of there adherence to Torah (and not 'in spite' of there non adherence.)
I wouldn't be surprised if He's anti Israel politically but a lover of jews.... How does that sound? Satmar theory maybe....:)

Neshama,

In response to your question to me (anonymous/Yisroel Tzion):

1.The formation of/existence of, a Jewish state in Eretz Yisroel prior to the coming of Moshiach, is a violation of Halacha. The din is based on the 3 oaths found in Shir HaShirim. The specific prohibitions: 1.disallow the Jewish people from making any mass immigration to and resettling of Eretz Yisroel (even peacefully and with the consent of the nations) and 2. conquering the Land by force. Both of these were violated by the zionist founders of the state, and any continued support of the state helps prolong this aveira. The 3rd prohibtion listed in the Oaths deals with the goyim. All universally excepted poskim prior to the founding of the state held this position (Brisker Rav, Chazon Ish, Chofetz Chaim, Satmar Rebbe, all of the Chabad Rebbes).

2. Of course HaShem knows Halacha.....Whats the question?

Yisroel Tzion: Why are you still bringing up the three oaths? All that has been clarified. Can't you see that the state came about because it was through the state that we, as a nation, have come home and which will ultimately bring forth Moshiach Tzdkeinu. If you are a believing Jew, you know that all is from Shamayim. The state is the klipah made up of the Erev Rav, but will fall away eventually (soon). This was probably the reason that H' allowed Moshe to have the Erev Rav shlep along and that is why we have suffered so through the millenia. Remember, everything is Yad H'.

What you are writing is ludicrous! How can you say that this is a resolved and closed topic, if the greatest men of our generation have vehemently fought against creating 'a state whatsoever'! Just as Yisroel Tzion so clearly spelled it out in his short comment. Even those who ended up taking a part in the government, did so only 'after' the state had been created, for a lack of choice..... and still some very big gedolim stayed opposed that. And today, it is only too obvious how right on track they were!

To use modern way of saying, the universe is designed by Hashem on mathematical lines. The past important events for Yisrael were in 1917 and 1967. And we are now in 2017. Looking at the past events we expect war in 2017. Obama is on mad rush to start it. But Yisrael will be involved later.
The mother Earth is moving, the time of huge natural disasters has arrived. Watch out the earthquakes frequency over 5 degrees Richter scale.
As for the above comments concerning the existence of Medinat Yisrael, that is consistent with the Neviim talking about the land and Yerishalaym. The has to be Jewish presence there to fulfilling the prophecies. So the creation of the State of Yisrael was necessary.
This generation of the End of Days is truly without much vision. That is a real sign that geulah is very near.

Yes, Dror spells it out clearly. Maybe now Yisroel Tzion and Judi will understand. H' gave us minds to think and as frumme Yidden you seem to forget that we are now at keitz hayamim and everything is Yad H', bringing us, very soon hopefully, to our Geulah Shleimah! At this b'itah time in the cosmic clock, how else would we have arrived as a nation to Eretz Yisrael? The Erev Rav are just a tool of H'. The good and the evil are under the control of H', as is everything.
