#223 - The Policeman in Charge

It's true that I haven't had a chance to post in a long while, but today marks the first day of the week of the first Parsha of the fifth and final book of the Chumash - Sefer Devarim (Deutronomy).  And so, with this new beginning, I hope to bounce back to posting on a more regular basis.

With all that has been going in Israel the last few weeks, regardless of one's opinion in all of this, it is quite hard to simply ignore what is happening.  To look at the good side of things, there has been much increased unity among Jews in these last several weeks, which began with the disappearance of three Yeshiva students, may Hashem avenge their blood, who were kidnapped by the Hamas beasts.  And though it was well known that they were Yeshiva students, rather than soldiers in the Israeli army, even much of the secular Jewish world showed that they cared, and frankly, many of even these Jews know by now that it is about time that we have to fight for our rights and not let our Arab enemies get the best of us.

Now that I have mentioned this, there is one part of all that has been happening in Israel as of late that I want to focus on in this post, something that just happened within the last few days - the burning and looting of the Israeli police station on the Temple Mount by Arabs.  The fact that the Arabs have protested many times and prevented Jews from praying at the Temple Mount is not all that new.  But the fact that the police at the Temple Mount, who for the most part give in to the Arabs, seemed to be totally helpless and hapless in this scenario, despite their own weapons and Israeli soldiers all around them, says one of two things - either they were not able to defend themselves, or did not want to defend themselves.  Regardless, one thing is clear here.  They failed in the past to protect Jewish rights pertaining to praying on the Temple Mount, and so now, they themselves now got back their just deserts.  But perhaps more logically, the Arabs all the time smell weekness in this communist run land, and so it was really only a matter of time before this was bound to happen.  And for the cherry on top, the police attempted afterwards to remove the Palestinian flag from the rooftop of the police station to replace it with the Israeli flag, but met with no success.

I will address this a little more in a minute, but first, continuing on with the Sephira combination count in posting, we are up to the 31th Sephira, which is Tiferet She'B'Hod.  As mentioned many times in this Gematriot blog, including the last one, the Sephira of Hod is very associated with the Beit HaMikdash (Temple).  With this said, the mosque on the grounds of what was the Kodesh Kodoshim (Holy of Holies) is hinted to in the Book of Daniel as the detestable thing.  Accordingly, the opposite of something detestable, or ugly, is something that is beautiful, which is Tiferet.  Hence, as Hashem works Midah K'negged Midah (measure for measure), since the police defended the rights of the Moslem Arabs worshipping to their Allah idol (believe it or not, they are not praying to Hashem, but to their own concept of a Higher Power, or the Koran god) in their mosque, rather than the rights of the Jews praying on the Temple Mount, it finally boomeranged back to these police whose building on the Temple Mount on the site in turn was completely trashed between the burning and the looting.  And this happened when?  In the week of Parshat Masei, the very Parsha that warns us that if we don't kick out the idolater non-Jews from our land, then they will be "snares in our eyes and thorns at our sides" (Deutronomy 33:55).  Speaking of which, I once heard Rabbi Binyamin Kahane, may Hashem avenge his blood, gave a speech quoting this very verse in reference to a bombing in the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem which also took place in the very week of Parshat Masei, demonstrating that Hashem keeps his word time and again.  

Having mentioned the 31th Sephira, let me quote another verse, this one in Parshat Ha'azinu, where Moses warns us in his final sermon of what will happen to us if we don't listen to Hashem.  Shicheit Lo Lo Banav Mumam Dor Ikeish U'Phtaltol  "Is corruption His? No.  His children are blemished, it is a generation of crookedness and perverseness."  Indeed, there hasn't ever been a generation in Jewish history having such a low level of corruption along with such double standards as applied to Jews versus our Arab enemies, the latter receiving constant free food, electricity, medicines, and weapons from a government running our Holy Land as in this generation.  Now, while I may be using the word generation a little loosely here, this is the result of the anti-religious government that declared Israel as a State in 1948, or in the Hebrew year 5708. You see, the letters in the word Shicheit (corruption) are the very same letters as the Hebrew year (Hei) Tav-Shin-Cheit!  And so, from the getgo, this government was already on a path of corruption and spiritual destruction, and despite constant victories in our wars against the Arabs, with the highlight in 1967 when we gained major land, including the Temple Mount, the holiest spot in the world, it would be just a matter of time before things would get out of hand once again, beginning with giving the key to the Temple Mount to the wakf, which led to other parts of Israel being given to the Arabs for a piece of paper in the name of peace.  

So, is corruption His (Hashem's)?  No.  In Hebrew, no is Lo, making up the letters Lamed and Aleph, which is also the number 31 in Hebrew.  For in fact, there are two consecutive words in this verse that are pronounced the very same way as Lo, except that the first Lo is with a Vav - which also spells the Hebrew number 36, while the second is with an Aleph.  Now, adding the numerical value of these two words is the total of 67, noting that we are presently in the 67th year since the State of Israel was declared by the Israeli government in 5708.  Then, the next word is Banav "His children" which is the Gematria of 68.

So basically, what is going on here is that finally, Hashem is showing who the real Policeman is, since the policemen who were supposed to do their job of protecting Jews thought it was a good idea to protect the Arabs instead, and so finally after 66 years of this government misbehaving with corruption and bowing down to the enemy, the only true Policeman is now saying that enough is enough, and even if the Arabs should continue violating and desecrating the Temple Mount, at least the phoney weak police won't be around to stop Jews from ascending the Temple Mount; since after all, the Arabs are doing enough of a good job at that to keep Jews away.  

Now, taking a close look at the above two words Lo Lo, when they are read backwards as one word, this is the word Elul, the name of the final month in the Jewish calendar year in which we prepare ourselves for Aseret Y'mei Yeshuva (Daws of Awe).  And in connection to this, this Shabbat Parshat Masei was the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried, author of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (Abridged Code of Jewish Law), noting that his passing took place on this very Shabbat Parshat Masei and Yahrzeit (28 Tammuz) some 128 years ago.  With this said, the 128th chapter of the 221 chapters in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch is all about the Halachot (Jewish laws) pertaining to the month of Elul, the month in which we especially work on ourselves to be close to Hashem.  Accordingly , the place of the Temple Mount, the grounds of the Temple, is the place where we are able to be closest to Hashem spiritually.

As for the first word Lo which also spells the Hebrew number 36, the word Eicha, which begins Megillat Eicha (Book of Lamentations) which is read on Tisha B'Av is also the Gematria of 36.  And the word Eileh, the beginning word of Parshat Masei, which is also the first word of the final verse of this Parsha, as well as the beginning word of Sefer and Parshat Devarim that we began reading from in the Mincha (afternoon) service of Shabbat, is also the Gematria of 36.  And as especially related to this year, it is not very common that Parshat Masei is read as a Parsha read by itself, especially outside of Israel, being that in most years, it is combined with its preceding Parshat Matot.  Moreover, the square root of the number 36 is six, and we are presently in the sixth year of the Shemitta (Sabbatical) cycle.

As we see here, we are presently in the End of Times right before the upcoming Redemption.  And as we see prophecies related to the Redemption happening in front of our eyes, we see that as per the above Gematriot of 67 and 68, Hashem has decided that now is clean up time, as is presently happening in the 67th year from the announcement of the State of Israel, which will likely end in the upcoming 68th year.  For once Moshiach comes, the present government of Israel, mostly consisting of politicians who sold their souls to the devil long ago, will be history, as once they see what is really happening, they will hide to avoid execution from King Moshiach, who will then show the world that these games are over, with everyone receiving their just rewards, along with the rebuilding of the Third Temple.

29 Tammuz, 5774

P.S. Noting the timing of this post as 3:27 AM, bearing in mind that the number 27 is 3*3*3, this post ended off with the wishes of the THIRD Temple being rebuilt very shortly, after Hashem is beginning to clean up on the Temple grounds.
