The tragedy of the Holocaust with all of its unspeakable torture,
anguish and unmatched sadism should not keep sincere people from looking squarely at indicators of their own culpability in
their own demise. The Holocaust has a genesis from which Jewish leaders can learn, Shimon Peres' disregard for the value
of history notwithstanding. Of course an honest analysis will have to include the age old flagrant disregard for the genuine
terms and requirements of our Divine Covenant. But let's move to the new Holocaust, the one which is around the corner
and gathering force and momentum as we sleep and breathe.
Today, 6/18/12, I learned that 400 planes, 900 tanks, ships and 90,000 troops are going to play war games
off of Israel's northern border. This cavalcade of power belongs to Russia, China and Iran. Somehow this is like
reading from our Prophets describing the stage for the War of Gog and Magog. The cause of this gathering on our door step
is not the rabid anti-Semite, Husein Obama, President of the USA in dementia. It is not because all Russian leaders want warm
water harbors. It is not because of all of the numerous things which pundits of the future will describe as the factors leading
up to the Holocaust of the 21st Century and the end of their Zionist nightmare.
Let's look at the factors which are coming to annihilate us :
1. Power vacuum
When police caught the black
boys who beat up and robbed hassidic boys in Brooklyn, they asked why they beat them up. The black kids said because they
don't hit back !
2. The failure to value ourselves and out destiny
Imagine God decided to
let us finally have a State on our own land after 2000 years. This is the same God who motivated Cyrus the Mede to start the
first Zionist movement after the 70 years of exile in Babylon. The turn out had to have been painful and eternally embarrassing.
But, never mind. So we survive the War of Liberation and end up winning the Six Days War with Jerusalem back in our arms again
in 1967. By that year, no Jewish leader had an excuse for entertaining the notion that Israel had any friends beside GOD.
Any talk of wanting peace was a strategic mistake. After 1973 rolled around and we learned of Nixon's and Kissinger's
duplicity and Golda's stupidity and how we survived the Yom Kippur War; every voter in Israel had the responsibility of
knowing - interrogating and knowing - how every Knesset minister and every cabinet member and certainly the PM would behave
when any kind of hostilities manifested. But Israeli voters did not ask how their leaders would fight a war or what their
political objectives would be after one.
3. The Providential Card
Little David had no fear of Goliath, because he knew that God would fight along
side of him. He knew he won. Israel doesn't have the good sense to inculcate our people and our potential leaders that
we alone of all the people on earth have a special relationship with our God. And that just like David - whom we love to reference
- we too have the potential of earning this active strategic alliance with our God ! Look at David's virtues. And take
note that he was a murderous sinner too. The key was his wholeheartedness.
4. The leadership crisis
We can look for the sincere souls among us. We can cultivate
mutual confidence so that the best and truest hearts amongst us become our next leaders. We can purge ourselves of the characteristics
which have always and will always be an affront to our God - no matter how many brachos we utter and no matter how many of
David's psalms we rattle off. We have to realize that leaders don't have to be lawyers, accountants, doctors,
engineers or businessmen. They do have to have intelligence, humility, and a spirit which draws God near to him or her. Because
at the end of the day COURAGE will determine victory against insurmountable odds. And to have courage in such an arena without
God's partnership is pathological or at least arrogance. What leads to courage in a healthy soul is to know God and to
know that HE is with you because you have cleansed yourself of offensive traits. And to appreciate the awesomeness of this
truth in your life is the natural precursor of a courage which is like no other available to anyone but a true Jewish leader.
The defense versus retreat conundrum
The Jewish leader knows that when he is attacked on any scale that it is time to destroy all
enemies. He is not going to encourage enemies to gather around his people like so many ravenous wolves preparing for dinner.
He is not going to build walls to protect his people. He is not going to offer one square meter to any enemy at any nation's
suggestion. He may offer to let his enemies vacate all territories from which they launched an attack before he invades them.
He will not allow any nation or all of the United Nations to have the last word about who his people are, what they are or
what Israel should do. The world will be revolving around the dialectic of the Israeli leader not the other
6. The dishonesty of relations with strategic allies
That Israel was lured by a conman to attack Iran's nuclear sites with America's
help if...if...if... all the hot air of negotiations fails by .... whenever; is a sure indicator to any normal human being
that Israel won't defend itself. This is how Israel invited China and Russia to enter stage left with Iran. Stage right
is America's position delaying Israel with its con game of negotiating and waiting to negotiate while Iran's nuclear
weapons become a greater and greater existential threat to Israel. It is kind of like a gathering of thugs in a cellar to
bet on a dog fight. They know the dog isn't going to hurt them because they control the top dog. The dog who is going
to loose will loose. And then day breaks and the thugs take the dog for its walk and the janitor throws the dead canine corpse
into the dumpster. Israel is slated for the dumpster. BUT it is still not too late to avert this eventuality.
7. The solution
Israel needs courage inflated
by massive doses of testosterone. Bluffing will no longer work because only a known fighter can bluff effectively and Israel
has sacrificed this personal power to earn the friendship of those who will never befriend her in sincerity. So now Israel
will have to find a courageous, intelligent, God fearing/loving man with a spirit that understands what the real political
goals should be and how and when to strike her enemies with destruction and fear. This man has to know that God is with him
and hopefully the bulk of our people, because the Providential Factor in this next war will determine if a second Holocaust
will be our fate as some Prophets have foretold or if we will win miraculously against all odds and destroy our enemies once
and for all !!!
8. Israel's formula for winning God's participation in a victory over her enemies begins with an acknowledgement
that every rabbi, student, religious person and so-called secular Jew is complicit in the future holocaust. Yes all of you
are responsible. All of you are Achan ( Joshua Chapter 7 ). All of you are the cause of the death of our people because
all of you have stopped our God from helping our people for thousands of years. This is a nation which has rejected the blessings
of a loving and generous, not to mention all powerful God. This is a nation which has reaped the whirlwind of His curses time
and time and time again and refused to face to obvious, i.e., that we are Achan, that we are responsible for our own disastrous
and horrid history of unspeakable suffering. What is it about a nation that never fails to choose death when choosing life
is just as easy ??? Is it insanity ? Are we suicidal ? Could we be closet moloch worshipers who sacrifice successive generations
of our off spring to the god who demands the lives of our children ? Can we be clever to do business and science, but lack
genuine intelligence ? OR IS THE SIMPLE TRUTH THAT WE ARE ARROGANT ? Yes, I believe that UNMITIGATED ARROGANCE is what this
hopeless nations suffers from. We will never admit that we are the cause of our failure to obtain all of God's blessings
!!! We will never admit that we and our rabbis have developed a lifestyle and religion that is in defiance of our God's
Covenant. We will read statements bequeathed to us by our ancient rabbis, who never provided one shred of protection from
God's curses; who never provided one reason why God should prevent our enemies from killing us; but who gave us a legacy
of an entire religion which contradicts the ORIGINAL COVENANT God made with our nation when HE took us out of Egypt.
Yes, my people stands up and says that they wait for the Moshiach; that they believe with perfect faith and yet they read
God's Torah but follow a set of documents which contradict it, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES GOD PUNISHES US FOR IT !!!
Yes God's people, Israel, suffers from an arrogance unsurpassed by any people in history. BUT, today, we may start a new
beginning and finally accept the obvious which is that God is just and will restore His unlimited blessings to our nation
if we confess the truth of our arrogant belief that we are on the right path and that all that befalls us is a blessing even
if we don't understand how a Holocaust, pogrom, and exile is a blessing - it simply is because our arrogant souls say
so !!! Are you all ready to wake up from the nightmare caused by our arrogance ?? My people, it is time to shed the
stiff skin of arrogance, because another Holocaust is once again about to ' cull the herd '. The truth is that you
and all of our rabbis gave us a defective mesorah ( tradition ) which leads to hell and not to the paradise which God promises
us in His Torah. And yes, I mean the written one - the one God gave Moses by itself without any mythological oral one
upon which our rabbis built a defective religion which has brought upon our nation curses upon curses AND WHICH IS SUSTAINED
NOT BY REASON, BUT ONLY BY AN INSIDIOUS ARROGANCE WHICH SEPARATES US FROM OUR CREATOR AND FROM THE WONDERFUL
AND AWESOME BLESSINGS HE SO VERY MUCH WANTS TO GIVE TO US !!!
