The Comptroller of Israel's Long & Scathing Report
This article is in English:
Very important findings for the North.
"Rehabilitation of North in shambles
In recognizing the destruction wreaked by the Second Lebanon War, the government promptly authorized the transfer of NIS 4 billion (nearly $2 billion) for rehabilitation efforts in Haifa and northern Israel – however some of the funds found their way to Gaza-vicinity communities and instead of drawing from the budget – a total of NIS 1.2 billion of the amount cited came from private donations."
I don't agree that this report is a victory for democracy.
In all pseudo-democracies you're allowed to yada yada about corruption. You're just not allowed to do anything about it.
As for me, all I can say is: I would not live anywhere else.
And yes, this is the source of my indefatigable love of life.
"Why Israel is the world's happiest country
Envy surrounds no country on Earth like the state of Israel, and with good reason: by objective measures, Israel is the happiest nation on Earth at the 60th anniversary of its founding. It is one of the wealthiest, freest and best-educated; and it enjoys a higher life expectancy than Germany or the Netherlands. But most remarkable is that Israelis appear to love life and hate death more than any other nation. If history is made not by rational design but by the demands of the human heart, as I argued last week , the light heart of the Israelis in face of continuous danger is a singularity worthy of a closer look.
Can it be a coincidence that this most ancient of nations , and the only nation persuaded that it was summoned into history for God's service, consists of individuals who appear to love life more than any other people? As a simple index of life-preference, I plot the fertility rate versus the suicide rate of 35 industrial countries, that is, the proportion of people who choose to create new life against the proportion who choose to destroy their own. Israel stands alone, positioned in the upper-left-hand-quadrant, or life-loving, portion of the chart ....
It's easy for the Jews to talk about life
The better one gets to know the Jews, the more peculiar they appear. "Remember us unto life, O King who delights in life," they pray on the solemn occasion of their New Year, which this year fell on September 13. Unfeigned and spontaneous delight in life is uniquely Jewish; the standard Jewish toast states, "To life!" while the most characteristic Jewish gibe admonishes, "Get a life!" We are not dealing here with so-called lust for life that involves a pile of broken dishes and a hangover the next morning. Instead, the Jews evince a liking for life as such. That is not only unusual; it is almost unnatural...
Life as such is not that likable. As Mephistopheles taunted Faust in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragedy, life in its totality was fit only for a god, too hard a cracker for ordinary humans to digest. That seems to be the prevalent opinion across epochs and cultures. Socrates told us to despise life and instead to view death as the highest good. Buddhism teaches us to regard it as an illusion to inure ourselves from its attendant pain. From the Spartans to the Vikings, the martial cultures of the pagan world showed contempt for life, for they often fought to the death. Pagans aspired to a glorious death; I can think of not a single instance in the history of the Jews, whose wars of antiquity were frequent and ferocious, of the mention of a "glorious death". The very notion is repulsive to Jewish sensibilities...
What makes the Jews different is their unique belief that the Covenant gives them eternal life, a belief grounded, to be sure, by
thousands of years of history, and survival against all odds against the depredations of the Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Alexandrine and Roman empires, not to mention more recent unpleasantness. It is not changing the baby's diapers or changing grandma's bedpan to which the Jews refer when they speak of delight in life, but rather the idealized, perpetual life of a kinship community...
Paradoxically, Jewish existence exercises a great gravitational pull on Christian faith. As the great German-Jewish theologian Franz Rosenzweig wrote:
That Christ is more than idea - no Christian can know this. But that Israel is more than an idea, the Christian knows, because he sees it. For we live. We are eternal, not in the way that an idea might be eternal, but we are eternal in full reality, if eternal we be at all. And thus we are the one thing that Christians cannot doubt. The parson argued conclusively in response to Frederick the Great's question about the proofs for Christianity: "Your Majesty, the Jews." The Christians can have no doubt about us. Our presence stands surety for their truth ... The continuing life of Judaism through all time, the Judaism witnessed in the Old Testament, to which it also bears living witness, is the unique kernel, whose glow invisibly nourishes the rays [of Christianity], which through Christianity breaks visibly and multiply-refracted into the night of the pagan world.
Is Now The End of Days? You Decide.Talmud Tractate Sotah 49b When the footsteps of the Messiah can be heard...
Chutzpah (insolence) will increase;
Inflation will soar;
The vine will yield its fruit, but wine will be expensive;
The dominant power in the world will promote the denial of G-d;
No one will be able to reprove another [for everyone will be guilty of the same transgressions];
The meeting place (of Torah scholars) will be used for immorality;
The Galilee will be destroyed, and the Gablan will become desolate;
The people who live on the border will go around begging from town to town and will not be pitied;
The wisdom of the Torah scholars will rot, and those who fear sin will be despised;
The truth will be hidden;
Young people will shame the elderly, and the elderly will stand up before youngsters, a son will degrade his father, and a daughter will rebel against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
A man's enemies will be the members of his household;
The face of the generation will be like the face of a dog;
A son will not be ashamed before his father;
With the footsteps of the Messiah presumption shall increase and dearth reach its height… the wisdom of the Scribes shall become insipid and they that shun sin shall be deemed contemptible, and truth shall nowhere be found. Children shall shame the elders, and the elders shall rise up before the children, for “the son dishonors the father, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law: a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.” The face of this generation is as the face of a dog… (Mishnah Sotah 9:15, citing Micah 7:6).
And about those days, the Sages said: "Let the end of days come, but may I not live to see them", because they will be filled with so much conflict and suffering."
HIV AND CANCER FROM VACCINES
Nothing I knew heretofore about vaccines approximates what is contained in this censored video with the top vaccine developer at Merck.
I had heard that there was HIV in vaccines just yesterday. I blew it off as mind-bending disinfo. But when I received a message from a friend that this video has been uploaded, I decided to look into it.
It seems it's not only true, developing vaccines with monkeys' proteins was the way in which HIV got into the US.
HIV is only one of the 40 some odd viruses in vaccines.
Leukemia is another.
And there are preservatives that they use for cadavers in vaccines.
A Quote for Individualist Anarchists
The Facebook user Aken Aton has this on his profile page:
"When they told you to be an individual, they meant for you to be selfish, not for you to think independently."
I'd like to show you just what we're up against
"Kurt Josef Waldheim (21 December 1918 – 14 June 2007) was an Austrian diplomat and politician. Waldheim was Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981, and President of Austria from 1986 to 1992. While running for President in Austria in 1985, his service as a Wehrmacht intelligence officer during World War II raised international controversy."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_WaldheimAnd this: One world religion and the UNhttp://www.prisonplanet.com/ushering_in_the_one_world_religion.htmAnd just what is that new world religion? Well, the publishing house of the UN is The Lucis Trust, formerly The Lucifer Trust. Type United Nations into the search facility on their home page:
Notice how many times the words "spiritual" and "spirituality" is used on that site.http://www.lucistrust.org/
"And finally, we come to the photos of the UN General Assembly Hall and the UN meditation room. On the left immediately below is the UN Meditation Room. Notice the similarity of the "barren" look and "sterile" feel between the UN Meditation Room, the masonic temples, the Anglican Churches and the Vatican II New "Catholic" Churches. According to the official United Nations website, the meditation room was "created by former Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld as 'a place where the doors may be open to the infinite lands of thought and prayer.'" One source has described it this as follows: "This room contains numerous freemasonic symbols and has an altar to the 'faceless god.'" (Revs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI, What Has Happened to the Catholic Church?) Although in theory people of all faiths are welcome to us it, the stark, abstract chamber is tailor-made for occult/New Age groups, two of which enjoy the status of UN non-governmental organizations (NGOs): the Aquarian Age Community and the Lucis Trust (originally Lucifer Trust). These organizations hold their meetings in UN conference rooms and provide assistance, advice, and counseling to the U.N. officials and staff. The UN has also affiliated with other occultist-friendly activities and conducted its own, such as the Planetary Initiative, for which it named as director David Spangler, guru at Scotland's neo-pagan Findhorn Community. Spanger has been described by religious researcher J. Gordon Melton as the "primary architect/theoretician" of the New Age Movement and is particularly infamous for his contention that "No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation." And then there is the Earth Charter, which seeks to being about a new "global spirituality." (Among the Charter's supporters are the unrepentant Communist Mikhail Gorbachev and "liberation theology" propagandist Leonardo Boff.)http://www.realnews247.com/altar_comparison_pictorial.htm
That's from a Christian site, but if you notice, Judaism wasn't represented at that UN "happening" either - and for my part, I'm glad it wasn't. But from their point of view, they don't want real Judaism part of their new world cult.
I'm not quoting Christian sites because I endorse them, God forbid.
I have no choice. There just aren't many Jews that are hip to what's going on.
Why aren't our Rabbis warning us about this???
This is Israel Not India
I waited a few days to write this for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted some space and time between the event I am going to discuss and the writing about it because it is not my purpose to blame, and most certainly not accuse, anyone of willful partaking in avodah zarah. I wanted a gap in time because do not want a necessary connection between what I am going to write below and any one definite event, in order to preserve the dignity and anonymity of the people who were there (they will know who they are). Also, I am quite sure that this is not an isolated case of the types of things that go on in Tzfat and I wish to portray this most serious problem in a general way – not specific to one incident, because it is not an isolated case that foreign influences are woven into Jewish practices.
Daniel told me that he spoke with one of his Rabbis about what I am about to relay to you. His Rav was shocked profoundly and told him that it would be a big mitzvah to publish this as a warning to others. He told my husband that we are enjoined to publish this. Immediately upon hearing his from my husband, I knew the Rav was right and I had to write this, despite my many misgivings. Yet, I waited another day to let my thoughts and feelings settle because I wanted to be able to write this from love and not from revulsion or anger.
Recently, I went to an event that was advertised as a very kosher kind of event based on the work on a Rabbi that was very famous for his holiness in his time and is widely honored today. What could be nicer? I told Daniel about the description of the programme and he enthusiastically joined me.
As HaShem would have it, by the time we got to the seating arrangements Daniel and I could not sit together because so many people had come. We had to take seats on opposite sides of the room and this allowed the two of us to see more of what was going on in the room than we would have seen had we been seated at similar vantage points.
First, I was asked to remove my shoes before stepping on the rug in the room to take my seat. I complied, thinking nothing of it at the time, but in retrospect; I realize that that too was odd and not something I would have done had I known what would transpire later. I have been to the home of many Orthodox Jews, all of whom had carpets or rugs. None of them ever asked me to remove my shoes and many of them receive many guests. Later, I checked on the net and found out that many pagan rituals are performed barefoot.
So, I sat down and I noticed a number of things that made me feel uncomfortable. The person who was running the show, and I do mean show, seemed as phony to me as a one dollar bill. When he said how honored and privileged he was to be in this very special place, I could visualize him saying the exact same words to every audience he might stand before. Something about him just screamed out PHONY!!!
A number of women took seats on the rug and sat in a cross-legged, and one in a full-on lotus, position. They closed their eyes, breathed deeply and just generally broadcasted: "I am just SOOOO spiritual and all this is just SOOO spiritual and deep and kewl."
I have said before, and I will say again, "spirituality" is not a Jewish thing. While it is true that there are a number of accounts on the part of the Prophets saying that the Spirit of God aroused them to prophecy at the beginning of their books; nowhere in those books do they teach, encourage, or promulgate "spirituality". The throwing around of the term "spirituality" is wholly foreign to Judaism and it does not come from a pure source.
The attendees are people who are mature adults, I mean my age, give or take a decade. By this stage in their lives they should have accrued some Jewish dignity and internalized Jewish comportment, and stopped acting like a bunch of kids on the beach in Goa. Seeing them carrying on as they did was embarrassing, but it was not enough to make me leave – not yet.
Then two women took turns giving one another a shoulder massage. I did not see it, but my husband told me that at least one of them traced the body of the other, a few inches from the body. I do not know if that was Reiki or not, as I have never had Reiki done on me (my husband and I have both been told that Reiki cannot be done on us, thank GOD!), but whatever it was; it was not a Jewish schtick. From my seat, I saw that they too sat with their eyes closed grooving to the "vibes".
One woman, who was sitting in a chair, was moving her arms in sort of waving, undulating motions to the music. She was old enough to know better than to conduct herself that way in public. She is old enough to be a Grandmother. My Nana never carried on that way and I would have been humiliated if she did. Truly Jewish women, who have internalized the weight and meaning and honor of being a mature Jewish woman, just don't behave that way in public to this day. I was deeply abashed when I saw her, but that too was not enough to make me leave – not yet.
The question that kept going through my mind as I watched the behaviors of the people in the room was: How would my Grandparents react if they saw Jews behaving this way? How would the Rav who this evening was supposedly dedicated to react if he saw Jews carrying on this way? I tried to imagine people going on like this in the homes of any of the Jews that had been the shapers of my Jewish view of the world, those whose embodiment of Jewish holiness had made me think I want to be like *them* when I grow up – my Family, my Teachers, my Friends, those at whose Shabbat and Holiday tables I sat at when I was a student…and as I recalled the Jewish atmosphere in those homes and remembered how they conducted themselves; the scene I was witnessing grew ever more bizarre to me.
Then something happened that made me go flying out of there literally like a bat out of hell. I told Daniel that there is more India in that room than Israel and he too was more than willing to get out.
They invited a woman to light a "ner neshama", which was placed on a low table. I did not await the explanation of this spectacle. I hope that the woman was not lighting a candle for someone dear to her, as I do not wish to hurt anyone or denigrate a show of love and honor someone intends for a loved one. Yet, there are *Jewish* ways of honoring our loved ones and this wasn't one of them. As soon as I saw her begin to bend down to the low table to light the candle, or crouch to sit down on the rug; I know not which, as I knew in the core of my Being I had to flee for the sake of my Soul; I ran, not walked, out of there. I felt a wave of tum'ah and revulsion that stayed with me for hours afterward. Never had I seen such a thing in any Jewish home or function that I'd ever been in. A "ner neshama" is never part of a public gathering. It is a personal thing and it is always lit at eye level.
How could Jewish Souls not feel that something was wrong? Even if they had not been told expressly not to do that or had been told it was alright by someone they trust and respect *a Jewish Soul should know that something is not right*. For hours afterward my breathing was labored as my Neshamah cleansed the tum'ah out of my body from just having sat there for a few minutes. When I related the story to a friend the next day, she noticed that my breathing was labored as I spoke. Just talking about it was more impurity than my Soul could tolerate. How could those Jews in that room not feel the tum'ah. How?
My husband told me that when he told the part about the "ner neshamah" on the low table to his Rav, his Rav was aghast, absolutely aghast.
I too have shared what happened with Jews whom I know come from kosher backgrounds and they all said that something was very, very wrong there and they too would have left as Daniel and I did.
I don't know the purpose of the people who arranged this evening and those who partook in it. I cannot, and will not, second-guess them. I'm sure that at least most of the people in that room were honest dupes and did not know that so much avodah zarah had seeped into their practice of what they think is Judaism. I also have a sneaking suspicion that there are people in Tzfat who are not entirely innocent and are leading others to do things that no Jew should do.
A couple of days later I bumped into one of the two women who were giving each other massages that I mentioned above and whom my husband said he saw trace their body with their hands a few inches from the body, which looked weird to him. The first time we met I felt she wanted to say something to me, but hesitated. I too did not wish to make an issue of it. But we met again a few minutes later, and both of us understood that we should talk about it. She gently asked why I left. I told her that I felt very uncomfortable there. She thought that it might have been because of the cats in the house. I assured her that I love cats. We have adopted a cat, whom we love dearly. No, I told her, it wasn't the cats in the house. In fact, I had played with one of them while we waited for the programme to begin. I was astounded that, though she is a lovely person, she was so Jewishly dense that she couldn't understand what was bothering me that night. Evidently, partaking in the practices that she does has caused her to be desensitized Jewishly.
I told her that there were things going on in the room that I couldn't sit with.
I tried to say it in a diplomatic way. She said: "I understand. It just wasn't right *for you*." I said to her with a hint of irony: Yeah, it wasn't right for me, hoping that she'll eventually come to the understanding that there are some things that are, or are not right, for everyone. Pure air, water and food are among those in the former category. Strychnine and cyanide are in the latter category. To say about any of those "it's right for me" or "it's not right for me" is to say something wholly inapplicable because those are universals. There are religious and moral equivalents of pure air, water and food, on the one hand, and strychnine and cyanide on the other. There are Jewish universals. Judaism, for Jewish Souls, in pure air, water, and food. Avodah Zara, for all Jews, is strychnine and cyanide. There can be no religious and moral relativity about these matters.
My words are not meant to embarrass or hurt any of the people who attended that function. I'm sure that most of them are the innocent victims of very shrewd and subtle tingeing of Judaism with avodah zarah. Some of them were into pagan religions before coming to Judaism and have not cleared themselves out of it. Unfortunately, there is a concentration of such chozrim b'tshuvah in Tzfat who have not cleared the foreign influences from themselves. Moreover, Tzfat, being what it is, was, and is, targeted for the introduction of foreign elements into Judaism in order to lead innocent Jews astray.
Make no mistake about thinking that some of the elements of Eastern religions can be integrated into Judaism or that there are "neutral" practices from those cultures without religious basis or implications.
The swastika is an Eastern religious symbol. It is used by many Eastern traditions. It does not matter which direction it's facing. They use it facing both directions.
The Nazis were occultists, as is known. They never did anything without consulting with astrologers and they were deeply involved in other, even darker, occult practices. The Nazis made a pilgrimage to Tibet early on as they saw affinities between the ancient Germanic pagan rites and Buddhism.
Remember too, the next time you are tempted to have anything to do with Reiki that the Nazis sided with the Japanese during the war.
There is a plan afoot to bring about one world religion. The headquarters of those carrying out that plan is the UN. That religion is an amalgam of the dark occult practices in all of the religions, including the magic and conjuring in the pseudo-Kabbalah.
There is a war on for your Jewish Soul and you must win it.
There can be no compromise with any influences that are not Jewish. There can be no Jewish-pagan chimeras created. The impurities do are not diluted in one part in 60 or one part in 200. There can be no avodah zarah in Judaism. Every time a Jew partakes, even in the slightest, of one of their rituals, that Jew weakens the entire Jewish People and undermines our strength to fight those who never stopped trying to destroy us.
There is no place for true Judaism in the New World Order or in their new world occult religion. They will make no compromises with true Judaism. We must make no compromises with their tum'ah.
Small as Tzfat is, it will, as it has always been, be a focal point of their attempts to undermine Judaism. Be careful. Be very, very careful.
Pray, pray and pray some more. Strengthen your direct connection with HaShem and you will come to know that which is and is not Judaism instinctively. If you are able to be in the presence of pagan ritual or to partake in it, Rachmana litzlan, you need to strengthen your connection with HaShem - urgently.
Please take my words in the loving and well-meaning intention in which they are given.
Doreen Ellen Bell-Dotan, Tzfat
