Fighting the Wars of Hashem

The Rebbe told us
(ש"פ חיי שרה תשנ"ב),
“The one job left to do is to disseminate to the world that King Moshiach already is operating in the world theater!” Already operating - in 1991!

One of Moshiach's jobs is to fight the wars of Hashem. But see how interesting - he's doing just that - single-handedly! Why on his own? Because he wants to show that, while other nations rely - “these on their chariots and those on their steeds” - we need only rely on Hashem.

Jews need not worry any more! They have the anonymous warrior waging chessmate against the enemies.

Everyone knows the proverb that "Moshiach's arrival shall come in breach of expectation". Nobody can predict Moshiach’s modus operandi for revelation because, we know, it will come unexpectedly (בהיסח הדעת).

The “unexpected”, however, cannot remain forever concealed. In the course of present time the unexpected must happen. The Chabad rabbi from Nazareth Elite, Elazar Kenig confirms that which the Rebbe stated, that "King Moshiach already is operating in the world theater!

He says: “It would be foolhardy to believe Israel can overcome her security problems as other nations rely, 'these on their chariots and those on their steeds' ‪‬(אלא ברכב ואלא בסוסים).  After all, the enemies of the Holy People, were each soldier merely spit into Israel, could drown Israel, so massive are their numbers."

He reminds us, “During the Persian Gulf War, the Rebbe invoked the Midrash, ‘It is the year in which King Moshiach reveals himself’, and he said, invoking the same Yalkut Shimoni, ‘Jews, be not afraid! All that I do - is for your sake.’ Note the words ‘I do’ - that Moshiach is he who actively operates solely here! He started that war! He provoked Saddam Hussein into action. Then he prevented Israel’s participation in the war! Israel was prevented from displaying its ‘my power and my arm’s might’."

This is Moshiach’s own battle.

By the way, during the Persian Gulf War, amid the turmoil, with Kuwait invaded and overrun, the many enemies of Israel could well have swallowed up little Israel, G-d forbid, had they joined the fight. But the Rebbe handles the plot well.

Rabbi Kenig adds, “King Moshiach defeated the Communist Soviet Union", and this we'll not pursue here, for so many stories abound of the Rebbe's prophecies regarding Soviet Russia. But what more evidence do you need of this when we see Putin so often talking with a Chabad Rabbi and taking his advice as well? Russia is today very Jewish-friendly. Another important pawn as the Rebbe morphs the Diaspora into the Geulah!

This Ongoing War of Good vs Evil

Soldier reciting שבת Kiddush
As we live concurrently with the Chumash weekly portion of Torah, where this week covers the portion of Vo'eschanan, we cannot forget the last verse (3:22) in the previous portion, Devarim, that left us off with:
"Do not fear them! 
For Hashem, your G-d - it is He Who fights for you!"
לא תיראום כי ה' אלהיכם הוא הנלחם לכם

Hashem, we know, transmits by proxy messengers on Earth to do His bidding, be the messenger an angel, a person, or a set of circumstances. Now, because the bidding is for war, and the period is Redemption, the messenger is a general. With the enemy frightfully close and venomous, the fight must be waged taken to the foe. (Although this general is hard at work, to most Jews he remains anonymous. As for his identity, we'll leave that for another time.)

The more prevalent perspective is a diaspora-conceived one. Here too, in its theatre of play, you have a "leader", where, say Bibi, runs the show.

Simultaneously two worlds function, each on its own level, where one's operation does not interfere with the other's. In fact, the higher world's orchestration also steers the lower world's circumstances unsuspectingly.

Vo'eschanan begins with Moshe telling us he wanted very much to take the Jews into the Era of Ultimate Redemption (for had Moshe stepped into the Holy Land, the  Era of Redemption would have immediately blossomed).  Moshe begged G-d for this favor, to be the redeemer of the redeemed.

He was turned down. Jews would have to wait over 3 millennia for Redemption to finally happen. In our present generation (and we are lucky therefore to be part of it), a Moses of our generation is fighting the Jews' battles. He's doing it on his own. He operates behind the scenes, by himself. Unlike the first Moses, this chief has been granted the privilege to be the redeemer of the redeemed.

Single-handedly he beat back Iraq's 39 Scud missiles during the Persian Gulf War.  He needs no helpers. Nay, he does not want any help. He certainly doesn't want to leave the impression that brains and strength won the day; He wants only that Divine Providence be credited for the victories.

These days we see a wider plan of action coming into play, one that has the world tuned in again, this time with even more diverse appeal and with the most menacing scenarios.

This war has the whole world focused in! No matter what hell breaks loose elsewhere, all eyes remain riveted on that small piece of property hugging the Eastern Mediterranean. Nothing can steal the spotlight from this show called "What's Going On in Israel?"

This war has got to be the final one, the last duel of Good versus Evil.

Iran may become another flashpoint, or some other foe, but focus on Israel will always capture universal appeal, will always remain center stage from now on - for one simple reason: Moshiach touches the lives of everyone, so everyone will have to know of him! Divine Providence will see to that. Everyone is almost forced to tune in or weigh in!

Moshe's overwhelming desire to enter Eretz Yisrael pivoted on his wish to see Jerusalem and the Place of the Holy Temple (Rashi 3:25).

Watch therefore, in our present day, in our present ongoing war, how Jerusalem and Temple Mount issues will be revved up, for Moshiach too, the Moses of our generation, has his eyes set on these two holy entities, which belong to the Jews only.

The war of Hamas is the ultimate fight against Jewish existence. Moshe reminds us in our Torah portion, therefore, who we Jews are and what privileges we have:
"You are a people bonded with Hashem, your G-d, as you are alive today!" (4:4)
ואתם הדבקים בה' אלהיכם חיים כלכם היום

The Jews (and their supporters) will therefore triumph in ultimate victory.

Tisha B'Av - From Condolences to Cheers

Nearly 2,000 years ago the Romans destroyed the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem. Banished from their beloved Land of Israel, Jews were scattered across the globe.

Was this punishment? Yes, superficially, but no, when you look at the destruction of the Temple as a phase in the rebuilding of the 3rd temple. Without the Second Temple's demolition, the Third Temple would be unattainable.

Holiness, should it suffer a decline, suffers the decline for the purpose of achieving thereafter an even higher than original state of holiness. As a prerequisite for this higher level of holiness, the descent is a necessary component, as sure as a seed must first decompose in the earth before it "recovers" and creates a tree.

The first two Temples were built by human hands. The third Holy Temple will be built by God, leaving about 1% of the job for man to finish.

To merit this ultimate, eternal Temple, Jews had to undergo exile for nearly two millennia, which forced upon them a refinement that only an exile, a long one at that, could accomplish. Exile to the Jew has been the smelting process from which he can be extracted in his refined state.

Tisha B'Av for Jews is a day of mourning for on this calendar day both Temples were destroyed (and other Jewish tragedies). But chassidus of the last several generations has given impetus to think positively of the whole mess, to reveal that despite the travails, an ulterior purpose, a good one, is being served.

And therefore Tisha B'Av is also the day the supernal light impregnating this darkness took conception. For on the day of the 2nd Temple's destruction, a higher cause was also put into motion; On that day, Midrash Eichah tells us, Moshiach was born.

(A question arises for those who believe the Rebbe of Lubavitch is Moshiach, for the Rebbe's birth date is different from Tisha B'Av; Here's a resolution of that riddle: link)

This brightest of stars, we began seeing glimmers of its shine breaking through the fog of a turbulent world, at least for those whose eyes are keenly focused to the teachings of our sages and Rebbeim.

This bright floodlight will soon bathe the earth, will raise the earth orders of magnitude in spirituality, will reward people with this new insight, will sweep away evil and will bring the utopia meant for in the first place - may it happen very soon, in our own days.

The Rebbe's Tactic for War

Said 32 years ago, the Rebbe tells how to deal with terrorists. Of course, what the Rebbe said then applies just as well today!

Pictures Media Won't Show of War with Hamas

Note too the "disproportionate" behavior of Israeli soldiers, as compared with those who use children as shields.

Just Look at the Miracles

Just look at the miracles since operation "Cast Lead" until today, or from earlier, since Jewish settlements came under rocket fire by the Arab enemy. After thousands of rockets rained down, which could have left in their wake considerable damage, God forbid, by the grace of Hashem, when the sirens, noise and explosions faded away, all we saw were miracles.

Many rockets the "Iron Dome" smashed in mid-flight. Shrapnel therefrom caused little damage. Many other rockets God's unseen hand "diverted", guiding them to open spaces. Where a few rockets made direct hits, damage was inflicted upon material only, but not upon soul.

Also distinctly unique, we note that some glimmer of broad political favoritism gleamed our way from across the global spectrum.

Too, think about the raids terrorists tried to pull off under the thick of night. In one such move, 13 heavily armed Hamas/Palestinian operatives emerged from a tunnel they dug, the mouth of which opened within the borders of a kibbutz. Then there were nightly terror incursions we stopped that came in from the sea, also under cover of darkness. In Hashem's good, free grace, we nipped all these potential horror scenarios in the bud.

A couple, Chabad emissaries of the Rebbe living in central Israel, wrote to the Rebbe via his Igrot Kodesh. The wife, inasmuch as they had no "security room" available at their present locale, asked whether to move to where her parents live, where they have one. The Rebbe answered (vol. 7:161) "Regarding your question of moving from ... it seems entirely unnecessary ... besides not knowing which place is safer, soon anyways you will have overcome your worries with fear alone. And since fear depends upon one's will, you have the option not to fear at all and instead rely entirely on the good graces of Hashem, may He be blessed, free grace so no anguish shall come of it, God forbid."

We have much to be thankful for to God as He pours upon His people free charity.

The miracles and wonders we see make upon us a reciprocating demand: We need publicize the Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach's declaration that "Israel is the safest place". We ought to check our Tefillin, our Mezuzot, if they were last checked long ago; Carry with us a Chitat (Chumash, Tehillim and Tanya - bound in one), as well as a charity box; Fix a charity box on every room wall in the house; Sign up for a letter for every living Jewish soul in a Sefer Torah; and learn about Moshiach, Geulah and the laws concerning the 3rd Temple, out of sheer joy that we are beyond the threshold and into the Era of the Final and Ultimate Redemption of the Jewish people.

Definition of HAMAS

I Googled "meaning of Hamas in Arabic".
Found this: "enthusiasm".

Now everyone knows Arabs, or rather Yishmaelites, and Jews go back 6 generations before Moses, when Hagar gave birth to Yishmael. So no wonder many words in Arabic have Hebrew as their source.

Hamas in Hebrew means robbery (Gen. 6:11 - see Rashi). Only for Yishmael, who was a robber, it was more than that. He was enthusiastic about it. He was also a murderer and enthusiastic about that too (Gen. 21:9 - see Rashi). This latter fact the world can easily witness today as Muslims enthusiastically chop off heads, hands, mutilate, torture, hang, kidnap, rape, undermine, ... you get the enthusiastic picture.


So Hamas in Arabic went from meaning "robbery" to meaning "enthusiasm" in the course of time, as a natural progression for the lustful terrorist.

This is my conjecture of the lingual "coincidence".

Here's something relevant:
The Psychology of Islam.

Muslim Hate for the World to See

Remember when Hashem first told Moshe go tell the Jews of Egypt they'll be emancipated? Moshe goes to the Jews, performs a few tricks, and - the people believed him (ויאמן העם).

Then Moshe turns to Pharoah to tell him to let the Jews free. But here he finds a negative response. From now on, says Pharoah, Jews will continue to fabricate bricks, the same quota, only they must find straw for themselves. Pharoah will no longer supply this material.

So the Jews are forced to hunt for straw where they can find it. They spread out over the land searching for straw. When the Egyptians see out their windows Jews prowling in their backyards and fields, they come out and attack the Jews with sickles, chopping off their legs.

The deep hate Egyptians harbored for their Jewish peers now becomes all too obvious.

And, as if no better time to go, Moshe disappears from the scene.

Moshe asks God, why this negative turn of events. Says God, I'll bring upon the Egyptians 10 plagues; They'll complain, saying, why punish us for Pharoah's sin; It is he who enslaved Jews. Why fault us?

Accordingly God set up a situation where the deep-seated hate of Egyptians came clear for all to see. When the 10 plagues arrived, every Egyptian knew exactly why he was being punished.

The 10 plagues and its aftermath visited upon ancient Egypt is also occurring in our days, as the current Era of Ultimate Redemption unfolds.

Rabbi Zimroni Chik of Bat Yam says we see the same phenomenon playing itself out today with the Arabs. The open and unabashed hate is there for the whole world to see. Arabs cannot complain they had nothing to do with it, it was strictly their leader's agenda. The world watches as Muslims behave hideously.

Take, for example, Israeli Arabs. It is plain to see they've long surpassed beyond all bounds the definition of "protest". Hundreds of Arabs, all over Israel, in "protest", have destroyed Israeli infrastructure, attacked cars with rocks and incendiary devices, butchered, kidnapped and lynched soldiers and babies, burned vehicles, grave sites, homes and forests, used knives, slingshots and sniper rifles, falsified pictures and videos, teach their newborn to despise, to commit suicide, etc., all because of their inherent bloodthirsty lust.

Also plain to see, for everyone in the world, how even among themselves, Arabs and Muslims are chopping off heads left and right, torturing, hanging, mutilating, first chance they get.

As they are annihilated, continue to be annihilated, and will be annihilated, these Muslims will know full-well exactly why they got their one-way ticket to Hell.

And God/Israel/Torah shall remain victorious.

Hate in Blatant Relief in America

Chinese Spy Caught
Jul 11, 2:06 AM (ET)
By PAUL ELIAS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a California chemical engineer to 15 years in prison and fined him $28.3 million for a rare economic-espionage conviction for selling China a secret recipe to a widely used white pigment.

U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey White said Thursday in Oakland that Liew, a naturalized U.S. citizen, had "turned against his adopted country over greed." ....

Meanwhile, after 29 or 30 years of sitting in jail, many of which were in solitary confinement, this U.S. administration, entirely out of anti-Semitic motives, leaves Jonathan Pollard in jail. What I leave unsaid you should understand why.
שלום מרדכי הלוי בן רבקה שיחי' ה

Then there is Sholom Rubashkin. If he's guilty, it's a 1st-time offense (something banks do every day). He has 10 children waiting for him to come home. He was sentenced to 27 years in prison! When you look into this case it's clear this is nothing less than full-blown anti-Semitism, alive and well in America.

The Apparent World Entropy

Some things even a blind man can see.

Maniacal Iran is approaching nuclear capability. America is disintegrating economically, politically and demographically. Europe too faces deterioration from within from its Muslim quislings. The Mideast Muslim nations live in an inferno. Poor Israel gets no calm from the world's nations, nor from its indigenous Arab haters. Nigerians are being butchered left and right, and nobody cares. North Korea is another hellhole that's liable to turn another country into a parking lot. Fukashima meanwhile continues to leak. Toxicity is in the air, in the earth and in the water. And so on.

People the world over are experiencing a silent tremor. They sense correctly that the world is in turmoil, tailspinning into chaos. Given the path that Nature takes, we are on the brink of WWIII, and were that to happen that would be the end of the world.

There's just one little detail left out of this panorama. The Jewish people are a Supernatural eternal people. And therefore, this horrible scenario cannot happen. The world was created for their sake and for their sake it will continue to exist.

What really is happening is that Israel will be squeezed into a corner by the Evil in the world and G-d will save the Jews and usher in for them the Era of the Ultimate Redemption. In the meantime the forces of Evil are separating out from the forces of Good, so as to give people everywhere the clear free choice to forge their own destiny. Because, when the clouds of smoke dissipate, the only ones left to enjoy the world will be the Jewish nation and those from the Good who sided with her.
