Rabbi Kessin Update on Current Events

Rabbi Kessin speaks about the political situation in Israel, and also about the "Erev Rav''.  Highly recommended listening !

Slightly off topic, but it was only a matter of time until the ''yellow vests'' became ''yellow stars'' - https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/8402409/france-nazi-past-juden-graffiti-jewish-bakery-paris/

Fascinating and great lecture by Rabbi Kessin who is always clear and interesting. There is only one matter that bothered me and that was about the Erev Rav where he never mentioned the 'fact' that about 2 million mixed multitudes (Egyptians and others) that left Egypt with the Jews after Moshe Rabbeinu allowed them to shlep along. H' warned him they are 'not sincere' but did not say 'No'. Chazal tell us that they are the ones who committed the sin of the Golden Calf and our problems throughout our history since Matan Torahteinu are due to the Erev Rav. Today, the Erev Rav are mixed in with our people and even if they are totally and halachacly Jewish, they have the 'souls' of the Erev Rav or are the reincarnations of them. Everything else, I agree with, such as they usually hold positions of power and, therefore, have the ability to do the damage they are so good at. The combination of Esav, Yishmael and the Erev Rav (who really are the worst of the lot) are our mortal enemies from the beginning. The goal of the Erev Rav is to stop the coming of Moshiach tzdkeinu. The second thing which bothered me was about the intermarried Jews returning which I agree with but what about their non Jewish children? They are not Jews.
Found the video to be very uplifting and hopeful that Moshiach might really be around the corner. May he come immediately b'rachamim!

Re 1:30h

How can the Rav say that Hashem pre-empted the war of Iran against the world from occuring if everybody knows that Iran is still producing and testing missiles and is issuing so many threats of annihilation to the world ?

I have not found any Bituakh Leumi evidence of 1.8 million Israelis being under the poverty line. How can I ask Rabbi Kessin to substantiate the claim he made that almost a third of Israel's population is that poor?
