A Tough Neighborhood    

A Tough Neighborhood



The world doesn't have to blow sky high. But it will if we don't wake up. Fast. No scare, just fact. The IDF is our sole responsibility; it’s our job to make our soldiers strong…

 



With Hashem’s loving grace, we got through Tisha B’Av and the Three Weeks peacefully. That doesn’t mean we can sit back and relax; now we must prepare for Judgment Day on Rosh Hashana. When we look around us, we’re certainly in no amusement park. The world at large, and the Middle East in particular, is one rough neighborhood.

Our neighbors have sworn to break the sea blockade on Gaza. Unless Israel capitulates to foreign demands, there could be further confrontation in the Mediterranean any day now.
 
Hizbulla has a very itchy trigger finger. According to Middle East logic, Hizbulla thinks that if it gave Israel a bloody nose in July of 2006, when it didn't have a fourth of the firepower and clout that it has today, then it can really inflict pain on us now, and it's waiting for the slightest excuse to do just that.
 
Hamas is as chutzpadik as ever, and they don't intend to bend an inch, whether it be the Shalit negotiation or a peace (sic) negotiation. Their charter and peace with us are mutually exclusive.
 
Abu Mazan (Abbas) figures that he doesn’t need to negotiate directly with Israel until he gets a full Israeli capitulation with USA guarantees up front. Either way, he regards himself as a winner. Either he gets everything he wants (Olmert had promised him 95%, but he rejected that) or else he goes back to intifada - another uprising - while making a sulha (reconciliation) with Haniya's Hamas-controlled Gaza and moving Qassams into the West Bank. You know what that means? Tel Aviv becomes another Sderot...

We haven’t yet mentioned Iran…

The well-known tzaddik Rav Dov Kook shlit'a of Tiberias said recently: "No one takes Iran seriously and we need to daven so that there will not be another holocaust, G-d forbid." Several reliable rabbis who spoke to Rav Kook first hand verified this quotation for us.
 
The Sefardi Kabbalists, as well as Rabbi Amnon Yitzchak shlit'a, have all been quoting Zecharia 13:8-9 recently.
 
Rav Shalom Arush told Yosef Nechama and me that the reason he was sending us on so many speaking tours this year was to delay the Holocaust. Only emuna can do that.
 
The chips could fall either way - it's up to us.
 
If we choose emuna and teshuva, our enemies will fizz away like bubbles in day-old seltzer.
 
Unity is really important. We all must stop thinking that we're better than anyone else, and must begin looking for the good in every other person.
 
The world doesn't have to blow sky high. But it will if we don't wake up. Fast. No scare, just fact.
 
First of all, it’s our job to make sure the IDF is strong. We do that by fueling the soldier’s motivation to defend our beloved homeland. How so? We spread emuna throughout the army.
 
This week, the Rav Shalom Arush and the Chut Shel Chesed Yeshiva donated 6,000 copies of the Garden of Emuna to the Israeli Army. The Army asked for another 6,000. 12,000 IDF soldiers with enhanced emuna could certainly tip the scales and could likely make the difference between victory and otherwise, G-d forbid, in any coming conflict, may it not happen, amen. This is the real battle, and you can help us fight it.
 
The war to spread emuna could likely save the push button war. Rav Shalom Arush has promised that anyone who spreads 100 Emuna CDs will merit Divine Protection on himself and his family. Since this is such an emergency project, Breslev Israel is distributing 100-CD packets for cost. You know what that means? For 250 NIS ($65 plus shipping), you get protection that no insurance company can give you.
 
Help mitigate the stern judgments, help spread emuna, and help us all have a peaceful and enjoyable summer with only good tidings. If we spread enough emuna, Achmedinejad's nuclear reactors will blow up in his face and a black cat will walk between Syria and the Hizbulla. As soon as our readers bought the first 100 CD packets, there was an earthquake in Iran. If Hashem wants, He can take them and their nuclear reactors apart without us firing a single shot. So let's do our part and invoke Divine compassion while each of us brings 100 people closer to Hashem. Get your emergency CD packet here. And yes, you can even use your maaser (tithe) money. Rav Shalom send his blessings to all of you. 
 
Breslev Israel is now giving out packages of 100 CDs for emergency distribution at cost plus shipping. This is the fastest way to spread emuna and invoke Divine compassion. If you'd like to take part in this, call 972-52-2240696 or 972-2-5323339, or write rachel.avrahami@breslev.co.il . Tell them you want 100 CDs for cost and that you want to help save Am Yisrael. By the way, this is the cheapest insurance policy imaginable for you and yours. Let's hear good news soon, amen.
