#159 - Message of Malachi, LAST of "MINOR Prophets"

While most unfortunately, there are constantly tragedies happening in our Holy Land due to Arab terrorism - or rather put - due to the anti-Torah Communist regime that is dominating Israel spending good tax money from Jews' hard earnings to constantly send food, water, and electricity to our Arab enemies in Gaza - there was an incident that happened this past Thursday morning, Rosh Chodesh Kislev, that simply cannot be ignored.  Yes, it is this evil Communist government in Israel that while it is quite tough dealing with Kahane followers and self sacrificing Jews who live in bare minimum structures in so called outposts in their attempt to settle every part of our G-d given land, it shows major weakness giving constant supplies to our Arab enemies who reciprocate by throwing rockets at Jews.

And so, while several cities were on the alert with rockets being thrown at them - including Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Be'er Sheva, some of the bigger cities in the south of Israel, one of the lesser sized towns - called Kiryat Malachi, which hadn't been until now for the most part been dealing with the constant rockets situation, a few days ago, got hit with rockets that murdered three Jews.  Actually, it was four Jews, for you see, one of them was a pregnant woman.

Actually, Kiryat Malachi isn't so unfamous.  After all, this is where Moshe Katzav, former president of Israel who is now serving time in prison for rape charges, hails from, whose family, or at least his wife, resides at until this day.  And speaking of which, in a twist of irony, among Katzav's anti-accomplishments, at one point signed for several hundred Arab terrorists to walk free from their zoo cage.  But before this happened, Rabbi Sholom Dov Wolpe, a Lubavitcher rabbi who is most outspoken about the rights of Jewish settlement in Israel, wrote to Mr. Katzav in his attempt to dissuade him from doing this evil thing, asking him to imagine if G-d forbid, if one of these terrorists were to be freed and then attack one of his own children, how he would feel.  The reaction?  Mr. Katzav wrote back to Rabbi Wolpe that he is arrogant for writing such a letter, and proceeded to sign just one more death warrant, among this Communist dictatorship's many death warrants for Jews in their pieces-of-Jewish-body-parts treaties with the bloody hands of Arab dictators,  for more innocent Jews to be murdered.  It is true that Mr. Katzav had admitted since his sentencing on the rape charges that he was being punished by G-d for his vote and support of Jews being thrown out of their homes in the Gush Katif Disengagement, but apparently, he has quite a few sins to atone for, if he could even begin to theoretically make any kind of repairs for his fair share of the pie, among other Knesset Communist dictators, of endangering the Jewish people.

But ironically, while Katzav was safe in prison, Nachalat Har Chabad, the Lubavitch neighborhood of Kiryat Malachi, of all places, is what received fatal blows.  One of them, the preganant woman, named Mira Scharf, was an Lubavitch emissary with her husband in New Delhi, India, were presently visiting Israel to attend a memorial service scheduled to be held on this very day commemorating the memory of another Lubavitch emissary couple in India, the Holzbergs, who were murdered four years ago in the famous terrorist attack there.  Another of the murdered in this Lubavitch neighborhood was one of the first Lubavichers to have joined the Israeli army.

So as you can see, there is no just thing as mere coincidence.  Now, while the main message of what happened this past Thursday is of a national warning from Hashem as I will delve into shortly, these tragedies that happened to the Lubavitch community is no doubt a warning to them as well.  You see, the Jewish date that this happened - 1 Kislev, is first and foremost, was Rosh Chodesh, which is treated as a happy day in our Jewish calendar.  But more specifically for Lubavitch, this day is also celebrated as the official date of the  late Lubavitcher Rebbe's return to health following a heart attack that he sustained several weeks earlier on the Shemini Atzeret holiday quite a few decades ago.  And so most ironically, the husband and children of Mrs. Scharf, on this very date, were sent to the hospital due to the rocket injuries that they sustained.  Now, while I may not be able to judge and pinpoint as to where Lubavitch has gone wrong as of late, though it is true that I know of an incident from some years back, in which a seminary student from the States whose parents were given a hard time for not paying sufficient tuition to a Lubavitch seminary in this town despite the thousands of dollars of tuition from their hard earned money that they already gave, this is just one small thing out of the big picture that Lubavitch, especially in this town, has to face.

Now, lo and behold, we read the Parsha of the week - Parshat Toldot - on Shabbat, which does mention of Hashem telling Isaac to stay put in Israel without leaving the land, concluding with Esav marrying the daughter of Yishmael, ancestor of the Arabs.  And then, we read the Haftara, the selected reading from the Nevi'im (Prophets) section of the Tanach (Bible) for the Parsha, from out of all places - MALACHI!  Now mind you, this is the last of 12 sections from the single Holy book called Trei Asar, which is actually Aramaic (rather than Hebrew) for the number 12, and in English is called "The Minor Prophets", for unlike the major books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, which has much material from these prophets, there is relatively much less material from these 12 prophets.  So, while the official English name of this holy book is not the translation of the name given to it by the Anshei Knesset HaGedola, the group of Sages at the time of the beginning of the Second Temple who officialized the remaining books of the Tanach that had yet to be included in the total list of 24 Tanach books, it is hardly coincidence that this is the English name given for this.

You see, the Hebrew word for Katan, which means minor or small, has the same letters as the Hebrew number 159 - and this is my 159th post.  Now, I did a little research in the Hidden Codes of the Torah program, and found an amazing discovery.  The letters of the name Malachi - is spelled in consecutive letters, in the same order as the letters of this name - exactly 159 times!  That's right my friends, the name of the LAST of the 12 sections of the "MINOR Prophets", the LAST of the Prophets parts of the Bible, is spelled the same amount of times as the Gematria of the word Katan, which means MINOR!

Now interesting to note, we see that Jacob, who was beat out by a few moments earlier by his brother Esau exiting their mother Rebecca's womb a few moments earlier, is called HaKatan "the small one", though it would sound better to say the younger one, in the context of Rebecca putting on Esau's clothes on Jacob to receive the blessings, reserved for the firstborn, from his father Isaac, in lieu of Esau to whom Isaac told that he would give him the blessings following a pot stew from Esau's hunted animals, as Esau was wicked, and so Rebecca made every effort possible for Jacob to receive their father's blessings instead.  Indeed, the very beginning of the Haftara from Malachi, which consists of the first and the beginning of the second of its three chapters, mentions Hashem's relationships to both Esau and Jacob - "I have loved Jacob, but I hated Esau".
Moreover, Malachi is the LAST OF THE TWELVE of the MINOR Prophets, just as Benjamin is the LAST OF THE TWELVE Tribes, who corresponds to this very month of Kislev, the month in which this Haftara for Parshat Toldot is always read  (Note: In some years, Shabbat Parshat Toldot falls out on 29 Cheshvan, but the Haftara read is the one that is called Machar Chodesh, as the next day is Rosh Chodesh).

With this said, we see a special correlationship here between Malachi AND Jacob and Benjamin.  You see, the truth is that technically, based on the fact that Esau was born first, he should have been entitled to the special firstborn blessings.  But, because he was evil, it wound up at the end that it was Jacob, ancestor of the Jewish people, who received these blessings.  However, most unfortunately, the government of Israel, in part capitulating to the demands of the United States, which is Kabbalistically today considered Edom, the name of the country that Esau helped establish, which later would be associated with Rome, the country who destroyed our Second Temple, instead gives its physical blessings - from food to weapons - to our Arab enemies, while throwing out good Jews from their homes and imprisoning outspoken Jews who are the true Zionists; giving jobs to our enemy primates instead of so many poor Jews who would be most happy to work these same jobs instead of receiving handouts.

And then for Benjamin- he was the only one of the 12 tribes to be born in Israel, and even as his name in Hebrew indicates - Ben Yamin "son of the right", the direction right referring to Israel (This is probably the source from which "right-wing" comes from, even though in fact, as Rabbi Meir Kahane himself noted, there is technically no such thing as right-wing or left-wing, but rather, what the Torah says.)  And so, in the End of Days, which refers to the final period of Jewish history before our Final Redemption, which is presently taking place with prophecies associated with the End of Times taking place in front of our ours, the present Prime Monster of Israel, whose name is also Benjamin, who makes it appear that he is "right-wing" when he is anything but, is living quite the opposite of what his name represents, and in terms of his LAST name Netanyahu, which means "Hashem has given", which is a sign that Hashem has given US the land of Israel, he is continuing his vicious past of giving land or autonomy of our Promised Land to our Arab enemies, which began when he was formerly Prime Monster by allotting to them 97% of our second holiest city Hebron to them, along with their constant desecration of the Mearat HaMachpela, the burial area of our Avot and Imahot (Patriarchs and Matriarchs), causing much Jewish bloodshed especially in the greater Hebron area.  Along with this, Netanyahu doesn't desist from making every effort in his vain attempt to give more land for peace (I say vain attempt, because based of what I have seen encoded in the Torah, Gush Katif will be the last land given to the Arabs that took place in 2005, but Netanyahu will still be eternally damned in hell for what he is presently doing in his constant endangerment of the Jewish people).

Now, a question can be asked here.  Why is Trei Asar the name given for this section of the Tanach?  Couldn't it be given the Hebrew word(s) that means "twelve"?

As you may notice, there are a few places in the prayer liturgy that Aramaic is mentioned instead of Hebrew.  Of course, there are reasons given for any given prayer that is recited in Aramaic, instead of the regular "Holy Tongue".

You see, as you leaf through the Tanach, especially the prophecies of the later prophets, beginning with Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, you will see how Hashem constantly warns the Jewish people of their devious behavior, calling on them to repent, or else they will see the tragic results of their actions.  Now, while in fact, some of the "Minor Prophets" lived within the time of the former three prophets, it seems that the fact that this final book of the Prophets called by a title in Aramaic, indicates the declining spiritual level of the Jewish people, especially in the days leading to the destruction of the First Temple, as well as the spiritual situation of the nation when some Jews return to Israel from Babylonia in time for the construction of the Second Temple when some Jews married non-Jewish women, and were living together as such even in Israel.  The point that I am making here is that as time went on, Hashem had to relate to the Jewish nation more to their current spiritual low level, speaking to them more "in their own language", as in fact, Aramaic was the official language of Babylonia, and that is why a good percentage of the Babylonian Talmud is in this language.

Now, fast forward to today, the LAST days of our exile, as we know that Moshiach is coming very soon, and the only question is how the events of the Messianic era will unfold, partly based on our present actions, and while yes, there has been certain improvements in Judaism today, including more Yeshivot in the world than ever in the last 2,000 years, an ever increasing movement of Jews returning to the fold, and the availability of Jewish books as there has never been before in Jewish history, there are other areas which have been in the dumps more than ever - such as some, even in the Torah world, who pursue much materialism while attempting to maintain holding on to their hats in their observance of Judaism, especially for the ones who live outside of Israel.  And more practically in terms of Israel, while many who live in the land that Hashem orders us to live in are what I will call living practitioners of Judaism, including rabbis who are viewed as Zionists in terms of preaching about the importance and uniqueness about Israel, some of them have clearly missed the bat.  While in formal times, Jews would have massively protested against the constant gross injustices that are being perpetrated against our nation, in the midst of favoring its enemies; some of them today are more supportive of the government of "Medinat Yisrael" than of Torat Yisrael, called in the Tanach as Torat Hashem.  And even when some espouse more or less the views of the Torah in terms of Israel, and do a little more than tell their students that they shouldn't listen to the army when told to throw Jews out of their homes, they don't want to sound too vocal for fear of repercussions from the ones in the government who send them money, and justify themselves feeling that their lone protest will hardly do anything anyways.

And so, reading the message of the Haftara from Malachi, we see how Hashem criticizes one who is able to bring a choice animal as an offering in the Temple, but instead, offers a blemished animal.  Accordingly, one who is in a position to being vocal about what the Torah really tells us in terms of true nationalism, which includes taking revenge without mercy on our enemies, and not obeying orders in the army when being told to do things against the Torah; but however, is afraid of being labeled racist and a fanatic, and so wants to appear more "moderate", is automatically categorizing oneself in the same group as the left-wing self-hating Jews who neither care about the constant endangerment of Jews.  Oh sure, I am not saying that they would ever go out of their way to sign a document that Jews should leave Gush Katif due to "practical" reasons, as some who label themselves as "religious" Jews because they wear a skullcap, keep Shabbat, and observe Kashrut did, including a prospective date suggested to me, following in the footsteps of her father, a professor in Judaic studies, having made Aliyah from the States, who thought that it was a good idea to sign a supportive death warrant to throw out 9,000 Jews from their rightful homes to make it easier for Arabs to attack Jews, and we all good Jews know the various tragedies that happened to most of these Jews following their expulsion - including lack of half-decent housing, less chances of mating, divorces, lack of good education, being jobless, kids turning to crime, suicides, etc.  Of course, this is not to speak of the fact that as of record, NOT ONE of the ones, even the "religious" ones who called for soldiers, or the soldiers themselves, to throw Jews from their homes, invited any of them to even so much as spend a Shabbat at their homes, or give any financial assistance to help these hapless, helpless, and hopeless Jews get back on their feet.  In any case, even these "moderate" rabbis, who are afraid to have their name associated in a list with Rabbi Kahane of fear of being labeled a terrorist, have a part in the endangerment and murder of Jews by Arab terrorists, and will no doubt have to give an accounting on Judgment Day for all the harm that they caused the Jewish people.

Now, let us turn to the LAST verse of the Haftora from Malachi for Parshat Toldot - "For the lips of a Cohen will observe knowledge, and they will seek Torah from his mouth, for he is a angel of the L-rd of Hosts" (2:7).  The Talmud notes on this verse that if one teaching Torah resembles an angel in the sense that his behavior matches his level of Torah knowledge, then indeed, he is someone to learn Torah from.  However, if one who seems to be a Torah scholar doesn't appear as such by the way that he behaves, hence, not authentically representing the Torah, then one is not to learn Torah from such a person.

As I mentioned in my previous post, there are most unfortunately today those, while they may have earned their rabbinic degree, literally do not behave according to what the Torah demands.  In this context, I am referring specifically of their behavior of helping Jews to live in physical (and in effect also spiritual) danger by attempting to assist the evil regime in Israel to throw these good Jews out of their homes into the street for all practical purposes.  These types of rabbis included Moti Alon, Shlomo Aviner, and quite a few more, the ones who were wearing vests at the time of the Post Tisha B'Av 5765 Gush Katif Expulsion with the word "Rav" - as shown on video, ironically referring to one as a "rabbi", but in fact, hints to the phrase that includes this word - Eruv Rav "mixed multitude", which in the original context, was a group of non-Jews who while may have gone through Jewish conversion in time for the Exodus from Egypt, but were in fact a bunch of rotten apples who were the very ones responsible for getting the Jews to worship the Eigel HaZahav (Golden Calf) that changed things for the Jewish people for both the spiritual and physical worse.

Indeed, it this these type of rabbis who are definitely called Eruv Rav as far as the Kabbalistic Zohar is concerned, who are not what the Prophet Malachi refers to as "an angel of G-d".  For as the Talmud (Moed Katan 17a) on this verse in Malachi notes: "If the Rav (the exact wording of the Gemara) resembles "an angel of Hashem" then seek Torah from his mouth, but if not, than do not seek Torah from his mouth".

In a most ironic twist, as I was looking on the internet for the exact source of this statement, guess who is featured on top of the Google list of all those who wrote a Dvar Torah (Torah lesson) on this very verse (as well as for this whole Haftora)?  The very Eruv Rav Shlomo Aviner, who can be seen in a photo smiling together with the Israeli Nazi Police Commissioner Moshe Karadi on the day that these two evil people helped throw out Jews from Gush Katif! And while Shlomo Aviner may happen to be a Cohen, and even heads a Yeshiva that is called Ateret Cohanim right near the grounds of the holiest area in the world where the Cohanim used to serve Hashem in the Holy Temple, he is the antithesis of what an angel of Hashem is supposed to represent - total dedication to Hashem without motives of renumeration of money, power, politics, etc.  And this is aside from the fact that several years ago, he was forbidden by former Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, may the memory of the righteous be for a blessing, to decide matters of Jewish law after there were some complaints of Shlomo Aviner making wrong decisions about the Laws of Family Purity, of which violation of such laws carries the spiritual punishment of eternal extinction, G-d forbid.  Now, the fact that the sheep, Jews who don't give a damn to what Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu declared or what Shlomo Aviner has done to harm the Jewish people, continue following him, reading his tainted Torah teachings, and including them in the Parsha sheets which includes his tainted decisions in Jewish law, does not give any more credibility in Jewish law for such a hypocrite.  No doubt, the Evil Inclination continues with free reign wish these type of evil rabbis who are writing the very things that describe themselves - not of course as an "angel of Hashem" - but quite the opposite, the ones from whom it is FORBIDDEN to learn Torah from!

Now, there will be some who will ask, "It may be true what you are saying, but what you are saying is Lashon Hora (evil speech) about another Jew, especially a rabbi who teaches Torah to other people, and it isn't up to you to decide who is a good or evil rabbi, for he is still saying or writing words of Torah that could help Jews serve Hashem better, despite his past mistakes.  In fact, we even see in Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) that there is a teaching from Elisha Ben Avuya, who was a rabbi that later went astray, so what is the difference between these two rabbis?"

Yes, I will answer these unnecessary questions shortly.  However, one thing that I can guarantee you is that people who are followers of another Cohen, Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose words of Torah truly came from "the lips of a Cohen who observe knowledge", will never ask these kind of questions, for they know all too well, whether they may know much or little Torah, that the Torah is not the type of knowledge that one day you can say one thing, and then tomorrow, say the opposite due to political reasons - such as Shlomo Aviner's statement about throwing out Jews from Gush Katif  "This is the sin of the State (the government)" -and still speak authentic Torah.  That is, either what one says is authentic Torah, or not.  It is not a compromise all of a sudden because one will be criticized or ostracized by the government or world opinion for being too "radical" or "racist".  If the Torah says that we Jews are to live alone, without the non-Jews in our surroundings, then this is what we must do, even if the whole world will call us these names, which actually describe everyone else who don't have respect enough for the Bible to acknowledge that we Jews are the "Chosen Nation", as how the Bible describes us.  Oh sure, Christians who are supposedly Bible believers may have a hard time grasping this, but either they believe and want to follow the Bible, or not.  There are no three ways about it, but of course, only Jews are really expected to believe this, for we are the only ones who were commanded all 613 commandments of the King of Kings.

Speaking of which, why not mention something about the Haftara of Malachi, the LAST of the 48 Prophets in Biblical times, from Rabbi Kahane, one of the few prophets of this LAST generation of exile in the End of Days - as the word Acharon (last) is the very Gematria of Rabbi Kahane's Hebrew name Meir Dovid (265).

Quoting from the Talmud at the end of Tractate Menachot (110a), based on the verse in Malachi (1:11): "From the rising to the setting of the sun, My name is great among the nations..." where Rav Shimi Bar Chiya says on this verse that this refers to the nations throughout the world who know of the existance of Hashem, that indeed, the non-Jew, even as he has his own gods, may very well believe in Hashem.  However, the emphasis that needs to be made is on what they don't know or wish to acknowledge - that is, that the Big Power is the Holy One Blessed Be He, and that He gave the Torah to the Chosen Nation whose name is Israel.  (See "The Jewish Idea" Chapter 28).

Yes indeed, we owe NO apologies, not to the United Nations, not to the United States, and certainly not to the Arab leaders or citizens with their cries of injustice.  Hence, any Jewish politician, policeman, judge, government leader, or rabbi, who says ANYTHING that is in some way, shape or form, makes a statement that is supportive of these lame claims from non-Jews who dare question our Divine Jewish rights to our land of Israel or rights of defense, or rather offense until TOTAL ERADICATION of our Arab enemies which includes even the "innocent" civilian babies who will otherwise grow up to hate and murder Jews as well - in opposition to what our holy Torah tells us - has a share in the shedding of Jewish blood from shootings, rocket attacks, suicide bombings, etc that have taken place in the thousands especially since the Oslo Accords, although much of the damage already began technically from when first the holiest spot in the world was given back to the Arab Moslems by another person, Moshe Dayan, who misused the name of the lawgiver Moshe Rabbeinu, as well as the Camp David accords, which included giving away the Sinai - the area which includes where the Torah was given.  This of course includes all the members of Shas, the Sephardic "religious" party who abstained from voting against the Oslo Accords, as per the wishes of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who sadly failed in terms of protecting the Jewish people via his misguided decisions of Jewish law, who began his political and crooked party Shas specifically when Rabbi Kahane began his Kach party, the ONLY party in the Knesset not afraid to speak the Torah truth.

And now, back to answering the unnecessary questions - there is a BIG difference between Elisha Ben Avuya, who failed only in terms of stopping to observe Judaism in his personal life and Eruv Rav Shlomo Aviner, who OPENLY defied the Torah, making false Torah statements, actively physically telling Jews in Gush Katif to listen to the police and leave vacant a part of our Holy Land to make it ever so easier for our Arab enemies to come closer and attack us, while his pockets were being stuffed with more money to support him and his cultish anti-Kahane Yeshiva.  You see, with someone like Elisha Ben Avuya, as long as you have the likes of Rabbi Meir (the first Rabbi Meir of truth) who, as a student of Elisha, knew how to pick out the fruit and throw away the husks, and so, a teaching from one who was once an authentic Torah teacher could be placed at the beginning of a Mishna that speaks about learning Torah, one can be rest assured that the Torah that comes from him is authentic. In fact, there was once an incident of Elisha and Rabbi Meir discussing words of Torah on Shabbat as they were walking, and when Rabbi Meir was just about to walk beyond the permitted 2,000 cubits on Shabbat, Elisha warned him about it.  It was at this point that Rabbi Meir attempted to use this opportunity for his teacher Elisha to return to the fold.  Although in fact, this did not happen, what is important to see here is that even as Elisha himself didn't care to continue to observe the teachings of the Torah, he at least still believed in it enough to not want other Jews to sin.

However, one who openly says things that could, G-d forbid, convince Jews to go astray of what the Torah says, when in fact, "all Jews are responsible for one another" than being just "the sin of the State", has no protection in terms of the laws of forbidden evil speech against another Jew.  For it isn't a situation when a Jew sins simply because he was turned off from Judaism such as Elisha Ben Avuya (called Acher ""the other" by the rabbis, rather than an open derogatory term), for such a Jew always has hope of returning to the fold.  However, rabbis who turn astray themselves in the midst of their attempt to turn others astray have NO CHANCE of returning to the right path, for as our rabbis tell us, it cannot be that one's followers will go to Hell, while he will go to Heaven, for one who causes others to go astray from the Torah does not merit the chance of repentance when he already did such damage to cause others to be punished in Hell.  And so, even if Shlomo Aviner will be well and alive after Moshiach comes and the Temple will be rebuilt, I will bet you all of my money, that this evil character will be denied access to the Temple, and will be turned down from serving as a Cohen in the world's holiest spot, the area that represents ALL of Israel, including Gush Katif from which some 9,000 Jews were banished and suffered major consequences and irreversible damages.  And so, what are called Torah teachings from such a person is supposed to automatically be suspect, for the Kabbala calls such a person who teaches Torah as a Shed Yehudi  "Jewish demon".

Indeed, it seems that Malachi, the last of the Biblical Prophets, with his description of  "Cohanim, who disgrace My name" (1:6) is referring to this very Shlomo Aviner and his Yeshiva called Ateret Cohanim, and "the lips of a Cohen observe knowledge" (2:7) is referring specifically to Rabbis Meir and Binyamin Kahane, the two Cohanim whose words of Torah were only the "The Torah of truth was in his mouth, and perverseness was not found on his lips, in peace and uprightness did he walk with Me, and he turned many from sin" (2:6).  It is in this very last period of Jewish history in our final exile that this type of spiritual battle between the forces of good and evil are taking place, when there is "good" that is packaged in an outward attractive gift package, only to be opened afterwards and smell from being kept inside without fresh ventilation for a long time.  However, the true good that while may be packaged in a plain wrapping, is hardly noticed or believed in, and so, we are suffering the consequences of not listening to "It's either Kahane or Arafat".  That is, Kahane - and not other rabbis who compromise, dilute, and distill the Torah-Kahane authentic Jewish way of life, and replace it with foul odors that only look a bit more attractive in the eye, but refuse to address the root of the problem that brings on the likes of Arafat who appear to look a little more human with Abbas's jacket and tie rather than the kaffiyeh of Arafat, and that Jewish hatred is all too alive and convincing for the world to deny Israel's humane help of free food, medicine and electricity for our Gazan Arab enemies, while criticizing Israel's few grenades to a few "key targets" in sharp contrast to the tens of thousands of rockets rained on Israel from the same area where Arabs know that Israel treats them better than their own people.

Hence, the ultimate reason why the events in Kiryat Malachi, in which four Jews were murdered, seven were injured, and six were traumatically shocked, took place is because Jews, especially in Israel, are learning the WRONG set of teachings of Shlomo Aviner and his ilk, instead of Rabbi Kahane's teachings, as per the meaning of the final verses of the Haftara of Malachi.  And in fact anyone thinks that I am making up things, and speaking politically in my own way, I have news for them.

In a previous post (#150), I wrote of the correlationship between the 36 books of the Tanach and the 36 volumes of the Babylonian Talmud.  Yes, there are 24 official books of the Tanach, but when divided up which include the 12 sections of Trei Asar "Minor Prophets", and the book of Ezra-Nehemiah as two sections, the magic number 36 shines.  And so paralleling the respective books in order, we see that Malachi and Tractate Makkot, whose name means blows (refers to the lashes that a Jewish sinner received in court) correspond to each other.  Moreover, both Malachi and Makkot each have three chapters.  And as it happened, there were three Jews who received blows of death (even though there was the unborn baby of the pregnant woman, the baby is within and considered part of the body of the person for all practical purposes) in the town of Kiryat Malachi.  And in terms of Makkot, referring to lashes - Malkot in Hebrew, the letters of this Hebrew word can be rearranged to read Mavet Kal "light death", for lashes was very minor  compared to death which some sinners received from the court for more severe sins.  In fact, the five letters of the name Malachi (Mem-Lamed-Aleph-Kaf-Yud) can read the sentence - Makkot L'Ta'arich Aleph Kislev Yeihareg - "Blows on the date of the 1st of Kislev will kill", that is, in Kiryat Malachi "City of Malachi".  Coincidence?

And why?  Because Jews - whether they may be a few or the vast majority - continuously refuse to listen to the Malach Hashem Tzevakot "the angel of the L-ord of Hosts", as mentioned at the very end of this Haftara of Malachi, and as we see in this phase, the name Malachi can be spelled in consecutive order of letters in the words Malach YKVK, and Rabbis Meir and Binyamin Kahane, the true angels of Hashem, who, like the angels, served Hashem with NO ulterior motives of money, power and politics.


In fact, in case anyone wondered how this town received its name Kiryat Malachi, it is most interesting.  It is actually named after Los Angeles, which literally means "the angels", for the Jewish community in this city was responsible for the founding and establishment of Kiryat Malachi. (By the way, just as I know of a seminary student who was threatened with being thrown out of the Lubavitch seminary in Kiryat Malachi for not paying "sufficient" tuition when her parents already paid them thousands of dollars from their hard earned money in their tight financial situation, I had applied many years ago to learn in the Lubavitch Yeshiva in Los Angeles, but since the ones in charge didn't know me from Adam, and I had no Lubavitch connections as far as they were concerned, they would only accept me if I would pay full tuition of several thousand dollars, which of course didn't happen.  That's O.K., it was just one of several reasons why I am no longer part of the Lubavitch movement.  However, the point here is that there are strong spiritual connections, for the better or worse, between two cities that identify with one another).  It seems that for linguistic reasons as many cities in Israel are given names of people, it was named as Malachi rather than Malach (angel).  In any case, more than telling you the reason why this town of Israel received its name, there is another reason why I am mentioned this factoid.

You see, while few many know the reason of its name, that is O.K.  You see, Hashem is sending a messenger - me - to reveal the contents of this blog, including what I am about to write about an anti-Semitic incident, actually more than one, that took place like a decade ago in Los Angeles.  I hope that I can shake up a few Jews to warn everyone else to wake up to start realizing the Kahane truth, because for one thing, Kahane has yet to be proven wrong.

The first incident is what happened on U.S. Independence Day 2002, when Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, an Egyptian gunman, at the El Al airport in Los Angeles, murdered two Jews and injured four others.  While this was clearly an act of terrorism, much efforts was made to cover up this fact, including a piece the following day from the Miami Herald mentioning the possibility of the gunman being Hispanic, when there were those who knew right away that the gunman was Egyptian.  And as for the FBI, it refused for many months to declare this a terrorist act, and it was only because of much pressure that it finally admitted that this act "fit the definition of terrorism".  Now, while the reason why this gunman picked this date to murder Jews was because it was his birthday, and he was depressed being alone without his family as a terrorist refugee and so  he felt that he needed a "high" to perk up his spirits, there is NO SUCH THING AS COINCIDENCE.  This anti-Semitic event took place on the United States INDEPENDENCE DAY.  You see, the big problem with the Israeli government is due to its lack of trust in Hashem, quite contrary to the slogan on United States money "In G-d we trust", it is DEPENDENT on the United States, not learning from United States history that the independence of the United States from Britain was based in part in trusting in G-d.  And so, this incident of Jews being murdered in the States happened specifically at the El Al airport, the place from which people travel by air to and from Israel, on the date in U.S. history from which the dictatorship of Israel did not learn from.  Moreover, this act of terrorism was committed by someone coming from Egypt, the country in which Jews were slaves for 116 years and became independent from Egypt at the Exodus, the piece of history that the dictatorship under Menachem Begin did not learn from, and gave away the Sinai, the area in which the Jews heard Hashem saying "I am Hashem your G-d Who took you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slaves", to Egypt.  And as an added bonus, the name Mohamed is included in the gunman's name.  Of course, this brings to mind that the last two dictators of Egypt also have the name Mohamed within their name.  And these "coincidences" shouldn't be too much of a surprise, for after all, the grandfather of Yishmael, ancestor of the Arabs, was the Egyptian king in the time of Abraham, via Yishmael;s mother Hagar, an Egyptian princess.

And then for the FBI's active role in Anti-Semitism, shortly after 9/11 in which Arabs appeared to look in a bad light, the United States government felt that it had to do something to show that it wasn't racist against Arabs, and hence, arrested Irv Rubin and Eric Krugel from the Los Angeles based Kahane's JDL, accusing them of attempting of blowing up a nearby mosque based on the words of one informant, with no concrete, solid proof.  However, not wishing for Irv Rubin to look like a hero in the Jewish community, the FBI found a way to have him murdered in prison (though the blow to his head didn't kill him on the spot, but he died in the hospital), which happened later in 2002 while declaring his death a suicide, and refuses to its day to retract its statement on this. (By the way, the Gematia of his Hebrew name Yisroel Dovid is 555, and on his tombstone, it shows the drawing of a hand (the symbol of JDL), consisting of FIVE fingers.  And as for the mention of the number five three times in the number 555, we see that in the concluding verse of each of the sections of the sacrifices of the leaders of the 12 tribes of Israel, it mentions five of each of three different kind of animals among the sacrifices of these leaders.  So, since Hashem knew beforehand that his memory as a strong Jew would be attempted to be erased by the FBI, He found a way in the Torah to hint to Irv Rubin's sacrifices in his actions of helping to protect Jews.  Moreover, the initials of his Hebrew name spells the word Yad "hand", and this word also spells the number 14 in Hebrew, the Gematria of his second Hebrew name Dovid).

So as you can see, the tragic events of Kiryat Malachi within this past week bring to mind the anti-Semitic events that happened in its twin sister city Los Angeles one decade ago, in an attempt from Heaven to remind Jews that the United States, and certainly Egypt, is NOT a friend of Jews, and as long as the Communist dictatorship in Israel continues to rely on the United States' "friendship" and assistance, Israel will continue to have to deal with these rockets until it finally does what it needs to do - alone, without promises, threats, or conditions, to attack, attack, and attack, until the Arabs have no weapons left, and if any of them are left alive, that they surrender to us unconditionally, be chained, and immediately be shipped to one of their 22 countries.          


While technically, I am finished with the message of Prophet Malachi that he taught us this past Shabbat in response to this past week's events I hope to bring here a message of hope that is specifially related to the number 12, as Prophet Malachi who is the 12th and last of the Minor Prophets.  You see, the Kahane flame is still burning, and thank G-d, there are quite a few who are majorly responsible for the flame to continue.

One of these individuals, Dr. Michael Ben-Ari, a staunch follower of Kahane, who talked the talk and walked the walk during these last four years in the Knesset, officially announced the name of his new party Otzma L'Yisrael  "Power to Israel" this past week on 28 Cheshvan, speaking of which the synonym of the word Otzma - Koach (as in the phrase Kochi V'Otzem Y also spells the number 28 in Hebrew, and both Rabbi Meir Kahane and his wife Libby were born on the 28th of a Hebrew month (28 Tammuz and 28 Adar respectively).

No doubt, there will be many good Jews who will vote again for Ichud Leumi (National Union) in which Dr. Ben-Ari has served as Knesset member.  After all, Katzeleh, the settlement legend who helped many Jews to settle in various parts of Israel, who lost a leg in fighting for Israel, headed this party in these last four years, and includes Uri Ariel, who has also been outspoken in favor of right-wing issues, who will be heading the party in this upcoming term.  It will also include a couple of rabbis, pending the amount of votes.

However, if Dr. Ben-Ari is not in Ichud Leumi anymore, it is for good reason.  For one thing, even though Katzeleh, even as he himself took a back seat as the seventh on the list, he requested Dr. Ben-Ari that he stay in the party.  The problem though is that the way things are set up, there would not be much of a chance for Ben-Ari to have a seat in this coming election.  You see, while Katzeleh had good intentions and wished to unify the "religious" parties, which happened with the "moderate national" Bayit HaYehudi "Jewish Home" party, the downside of this is that the Ichud Leumi is now not totally in control, and so, Ben-Ari could not be fourth on the list like he was last time.  Moreover, the Bayit Yehudi party is certainly not Kahanist, nay, they are anti-Kahane from their past statements about Kahane, and have not repented from being the three stooges or phonies that they are, while they pretend that they care about Israel.  So, even if these two parties, in the religious camp, are united, this does not mean that all the individuals in these two parties will vote for the same right things when push comes to shove.

You see, if Rabbi Kahane, when he first started with Kach party, felt that it would be a good idea to team up with a religious party, he would have attempted just that, or whatever would take for the religious to take over the country.  Oh, I forgot, it didn't seem that any of the religious parties wanted him since he was too "radical" for them, so of course, he had no choice but to start his own party to be the ONLY voice of Torah truth in the Knesset.  And so the same here, being that once you team up with a compromising party, such as the Bayit Yehudi, it is washing away the truth, so Dr. Ben-Ari had no choice but to start his own party.  So maybe he won't get the 12 deserved seats - like the Ichud Leumi-Bayit Yehudi parties are expected to receive - that Kahane's Kach party won in its second term only to be banned by the Israeli dictatorship, but only with time can this be possible.

Another major point about this new Kahane party is that Dr. Aryeh Eldad, who also served as a Knesset member in the Ichud Leumi, decided to leave his own time party, and began starting a new party called HaTikva "The Hope".  You see, though not what we would call an observant Jew, he is a Jew deep in heart when it comes to Zionism that represents the rights of Jews to their land with zero tolerance of Arabs, and was fed up with the hypocracies of the "religious" parties.  However, knowing Dr. Ben-Ari with whom he worked together in the Knesset, he immediately decided to be part of Ben-Ari's new party.

So, what is more important, quantity or quality?  Still not sure?  Read on.

I decided to see where Ben-Ari is hinted in the Torah, or in the whole Tanach for that matter.  As it turns out, spelling his last name Ben-Ari, it is spelled out exactly once in the entire Tanach (II Kings 4:19).

A brief description of the context of this source.  King Solomon, aside from being a king and the wisest person in the world, knew how to set up a financial system that would support the food intake of his palace.  He appointed twelve officers from different parts of Israel who would be in charge of collecting funds (i.e. taxes) from their region to supply the food for the palace for one month each.  In fact, two of these officers later on wound up each marrying a daughter of King Solomon.  Anyways, there are twelve separate verses which include the name of the particular officer and the region that he represented.  And get this - the TWELFTH and final one of these verses mentions the officer "Gever Ben-Uri in the land of Gilead, the land of Sichon the king of the Emorites and Og the king of the Bashan, THE ONLY OFFICER WHO WAS IN THE LAND".

Now, to make this verse clear, this officer Gever Ben-Uri was the only officer who was in what is called the Transjordan in contrast to the other officers who represented regions in Israel proper on the west side of the Jordan river.  If this is the case, then the question can be asked, why was it necessary to mention that he was the only officer in this part of Israel if the areas that these officers represented are mentioned?  Don't we know by know between the Chumash (Penteteuch) and the Book of Joshua as to the details of the boundaries of Israel?

Well first, while the last name (which in the old days was typically "son of ___") here may be pronounced as Ben-Uri according to its vocalization; in letter form without the Hebrew vowels, it can also be read as Ben-Ari, which literally means "son of lion".  Now, the word Gever, the officer's own name, is one of the descriptions or synonyms that mean a person, or a man.  But it is this particular description that is based on the word Gevurah (strength).  In fact, the similar word for lion in Hebrew - Aryeh, is the same Gematria as the word Gevurah - 216, and is also the name of Dr. Aryeh Eldad.

With this said, we know how Dr. Michael Ben-Ari has been the Number One person in the Knesset who shows NO FEAR in fighting for the truth.  As a fearless lion if I can call him that, he enters Arab towns (with an entourage of course) to show who are the real owners of Israel, he actively fought for the Sudanese to return home instead of invading Tel Aviv (who received sympathy from Prime Monster Bibi who found the time to sit down with one of the Sudanese to hear their "plight" rather than the real plight of the thrown out Jews from their homes when he personally ordered former Prime Monster Ehud Barak to throw them out, as well as the former Gush Katif Jews), and succeeded in having many of them deported, he once sat on an army van in protest of young Jewish protesters being arrested and having their rights illegally violated which resulted in getting arrested despite Knesset member immunity, he was the ONLY one of the 120 members of the Knesset who openly tore the New Testament Bible and threw it in the trash, that was sent to all of the Knesset members (even the few Moslem Arab Knesset members didn't have this nerve, for after all, Jesus is considered a prophet in the Koran), and he is the ONLY member of the Knesset who has been banned by the anti-Semitic United States (which I will not retract from saying especially in light in keeping Jonathan Pollard illegally imprisoned) from being allowed to enter its country, because he is considered more of a terrorist than the real Arab terrorist MK Ahmed Tibi who has openly called for Jews to be murdered.

A true Gever, whether one wishes to call him a radical and a racist or not, Dr. Ben-Ari has proven himself to be clearly a man of actions.  Indeed, THE ONLY OFFICER, the only Knesset member, IN THE LAND that as a Knesset member whose function is to represent the people and the land, has done just that.

Now, before describing more about this above verse about Gever Ben-Uri, I should note a most obvious thing - Dr. Ben-Ari's Hebrew name Michael HAS THE SAME FIVE LETTERS as the name of Prophet Malachi!  And Gever Ben-Uri is the LAST OF THE TWELVE officers listed who supported King Solomon's food intake, the same way that Malachi is the LAST OF THE TWELVE of the Minor Prophets.
For after all, Dr. Ben-Ari, as Kahane's follower, is ultimately representing Kahanism in its finest - for as a Knesset member, he is able to accomplish more in the political realm to help Israel and its citizens than other Kahane followers who aren't in the political position that he is in to fulfill one of the last missions of the Jewish people before the coming of Moshiach, as much as the words of Torah-Kahane are important, as in fact, the Mitzva of Torah learning is the greatest Mitzva, but also, "Talmud (synonym for Torah) is great, for it leads to action".  And so, along with the fact that he has a PH.D in Land of Israel and Archeology studies, he is the ultimate political representative of Israel, although unless over 50% of Israeli citizens voting vote for his new party, he won't be sitting in the official Prime Minister's chair, although he is the virtually the only political person worthy of this position.

Bearing this in mind, Benjamin, the LAST OF THE TWELVE TRIBES, was the ONLY one of the tribes who was born in Israel, his name meaning Ben-Yamin "son of the right" referring to Israel in terms of directions, but is apparently the basis for the concept of what "right-wing" represents, while ironically, Prime Monster Benjamin Netanyahu, bearing this very Hebrew name, has been among the worse Prime Monsters of Israel as I have already detailed of his anti-accomplishments.  But don't worry, Dr. Michael Ben-Ari represents another Jew who was a real Binyamin in every sense of the name - Rabbi  Binyamin Kahane, may Hashem avenge his blood.

And as the fatal rocket attack on Kiryat Malachi took place on Rosh Chodesh Kislev, THE HEAD of the month that corresponds to the Tribe of Binyamin, this is a most clear indication that the prime minister - THE HEAD - of the country, Binyamin Netanyahu, is ultimately the one most directly responsible for these type of attacks that are happening; and only one, especially once aware of these facts that I have put together, who does not look at this as a clear message from Hashem, can be so blind or a denier of Judaism not to believe this. (Of course, these warnings from Hashem is also due to our general misbehavior, but Hashem has ways of hinting to specific things for us to learn from). Moreover, this also hints to the fact that the words of another Binyamin are not being followed - the words of Rabbi Binyamin Kahane, who in his final letter, which he wrote addressing the Israeli army, exhorts them to do what is right in defending this country, and not follow orders that could possible endanger this country.  This means, as far as I am concerned, that if the army is given orders to desist from continuing fighting because the prime minister gives orders for a ceasefire due to international pressure, that the army should continue fighting, even if it means disobeying the orders of the head chief of the army, because in the long run,  Jews will be far more safer in the end, which is the whole purpose of having an army in Israel to begin with.

Now, you will also notice in the verse something about the name of Og, the king of the Bashan, who was personally conquered and killed by Moses, the first leader of the Jewish people, himself.  While in virtually every place in the Tanach, his name is spelled out as the letters Ayin-Vav-Gimel; in this particular instance, his name is spelled as Ayin-Gimel, without the letter Vav.  And indeed, the last two letters of this Hebrew year 5773, the year of Ben-Ari's new party and G-d willing, his installation in the Knesset as the head of this party, is Ayin-Gimel (73)!  So, while there may be anti-Kahane Jews who will be quick to mock what I am saying here with hints from the Tanach about Ben-Ari, his position, and the year of his leadership as the head of a Knesset party for the first time, one has to understand why the Tanach goes into great detail, in thirteen verses, about the support of King Solomon's food, which could have been mentioned in a mere verse or two.  After all, the Torah is all about teaching us lessons, and is not another history book or novel.  But no doubt, this whole thing was written TO HINT TO SOME FUTURE TIME IN JEWISH HISTORY, WHEN THE ELECTION OF OFFICIALS WILL BE CRITICAL TO THE SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  By the way, we have here a great rhyme - MICHAEL BEN ARI, IN SEVENTY THREE!

So, it isn't just about voting for some religious party who will "guarantee" religious rights in an anti-religious dictatorship in the Knesset, even though of course, we need to do our best to assure rights for those who observe the Torah.  However, this has to be done ONLY in the Kosher way, and with NO COMPROMISES, the principle that Rabbis Meir and Binyamin Kahane, and Dr. Michael Ben-Ari have proven to stand by, regardless of threats, arrests, and being banned from countries.  Otherwise, in the long term, Judaism in Israel will G-d forbid will be souped and watered down, the same thing that the Enlightment/Reform Judaism has done to the real, authentic Judaism.  And so, quantity in this instance simply doesn't quite cut it, for the anti-Kahane "religious" members are a band of evil people, and if anyone wants to dare me to say this to the present Knesset members of the Bayit Yehudi "Jewish (plus Arabic) Home" party, send me an E-mail with the time and place within Jerusalem that these phonies will be available, and G-d willing, I will openly show who they really are.  And so, with Katzeleh's good intentions of unity of religious parties, as well as he may truly care about Israel, even as he is even willing to take a chance taking a back seat as seventh place on the Ichud Leumi list, his intentions simply don't stand up to the ideals of the Kahane movement of zero tolerance of Arabs, as those who aren't members of his immediate own Ichud Leumi party have their own agenda, and have united simply because they thought it would be a good idea for their own interests.  Certainly, Rabbi Meir Kahane would have NEVER agreed to be part of such a party, or in this instance, part of the combined parties, being that some of these members are evil people, and it is forbidden to join forces with evil people.

And so, why should Dr. Ben-Ari be any different than Rabbi Kahane?  Now personally, if he would have still been part of this Ichud Leumi party, I would vote for this party as I voted for it in the last election four years ago- just for the reason alone that he would be part of this party, because we need a voice like his to shake things up for the benefit of the Jewish people.  But in the long term, it is necessary that for the voice of truth, that he runs his own separate party, the same way that Jews are supposed to live alone, away from the nations, as Rabbi Kahane had preached.  For truth, the true quality, simply cannot exist with falsehood.

And of course, I have to mention that Dr. Ben-Ari's Hebrew name Michael is the same name as the official angel representive of the Jewish people - Sar Shel Yisrael, which can also be translated as "Officer of Israel".  For indeed, the angel Michael is the true representative and defense attorney of the Jewish people in Heaven.

But before I conclude, I must say that part of the reason(s) why the rocket attack happend specifically in Kiryat Malachi, noting the same letters in the Hebrew names Malachi and Michael, is the message that if we are to avoid future rocket attacks, the ONLY solution in the elections is to vote for the ONE AND ONLY Dr. Michael Ben-Ari's party "POWER TO ISRAEL".  Because if not, G-d forbid, the Arabs will have no one else to fear, and will continue to do what they have been doing until now and even worse.  The only thing that the Arabs fear is fearless leaders as Kahane and Ben-Ari.

And indeed, the word Koach (POWER) is used in the beginning of a verse in Tehillim (Psalms 111:6) - Koach Ma'asav Higid L"Amo Latet Lahem Nachalat Goyim "The power of His actions He told to His people to give them the inheritance of nations", which of course refers to Israel, and is quoted in the VERY FIRST RASHI ON THE TORAH, answering the question as to why the Torah begins recounting the story of creation instead of beginning with the Mitzvot of the Torah, the ultimate purpose of the Torah; since it is Hashem's world, and it is Hashem Who decides as to whom Israel belongs, for at one time, it was the "Land of the Canaanites", and then when Hashem was ready, he took it away from these Canaanite nations, and gave it to Israel as a permanent inheritance, even if the Jews would be in exile at one point.  And so, if one professes true allegiance to the Torah, he can't go very far without dealing with the truth of the purpose of the very first verse of the Torah.

And speaking of the beginning of the Torah (Torah/Chumash/Tanach), let us turn to the very beginning of Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law): Yitgaber Ka'Ari La'amod BaBoker La'Avodat Bor'o  "One should strengthen himself like a lion to get up in the morning for the service of his Creator".  And as we see in the verse hinting to Dr. Ben-Ari, where the full name of the person in context is Gever Ben-Uri, Gever is related to the word Yitgaber "One should strengthen oneself", and Ben-Uri can be re-read as Ben-Ari (son of lion) with the same letter spelling, we see that nothing is coincidence, and from the Bible to the Code of Jewish Law, we see who is at the forefront of REALLY following what the Torah says to do in terms of helping the Land of Israel.

And if we do our part, even if it may be a small segment of the Jewish people voting in the elections in Israel, by voting for the ONLY VOICE OF TRUTH in the Knesset, the only voice that will actively do anything and everything in its power to oust our Arab enemies, as the Torah mandates of getting rid of our enemies as a prerequisite of living safely in Israel, and is not enough to simply build and live in Jewish settlements, then at least for the few good Jews who had a part in voting for truth, Hashem will the end seal us for eternal life with His seal of truth.  As we see in the beginning of Psalm SEVENTY THREE - "Hymn of Asaf - May it only be good for Israel".  And at the end of the section in the Book of Kings, where it mentions the details of King Solomon's food support, PARTICULARLY THE VERSE THAT SPEAKS OF GEVER BEN-URI (i.e. Michael Ben-Ari), reads "Judah and Israel were many in the land, as sand on the sea in multitudes, eating, drinking, and being happy" the result of what happens when we are not afraid of doing the right thing, having the courage of a lion.  May this be fulfilled in our lifetime.  Amen!
