I pray you are right

in response to reader comment: Moses did not redeem

I pray you are right, Moshe. What I fear, however, is from a verse in Daniel, 11:14, that represents a prophetic paradigm: "also the sons of the rebellious among thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision: but they shall fall." (Harkavy translation) Encrypted here, compact with this verse, at an equidistant skip of 243, if I recall correctly, is "ve-ha-Tzioneem," "and the Zionists." It is at very remote odds that this encryption shows.

Then there are those Hasidic Jews who have a website, "Jews Against Zionism," and they make a strong case for what the Orthodox position has been on this subject. You may have mistaken me for one of them because I don't dismiss their point of view. They may be right.

The modern State of Israel is a miracle, I grant you. Our people had suffered tremendous loss. One-third were exterminated during WWII. So the modern State of Israel was established in 1948, a few years after the war, and blessings were poured out. After a time, however, it goes back to judgment and the malediction also promised in the Torah if we don't keep the mitzvot. As long as the mitzvot are not denied, then there is a standard for teshuva--repentance. But if we deny the mitzvot and negate them, there is no longer a standard, and like Sodom and the people of Noah's time before the flood, the laws become corrupt. The judgment from the Almighty follows.

As I said in my last post, Jews have been in the forefront of supporting the homosexual agenda in Israel and in America. It is a sin for which the Torah says the Holy Land will vomit us out. Add to that Zechariah prophesied we would lose 2/3rds of our people in the end time--well, we lost 1/3rd in the Shoah. Are we to lose another 6 million now?

There were 18 million Jews world wide before WWII. The Jihadist threat seems very much like the Nazi threat. During the Nazi period secularist and Zionist Jews also abounded and the Orthodox turned the other way rather than speak out against their apostasy. Are we repeating history?
