Daniel 9 is one of the most difficult passages in the Bible to study. It’s quite enigmatic, and that’s why people get confused by it (the 2nd part of the chapter, that is, the first half is a beautiful prayer we use till today).
While Christian scholars believe that Daniel’s prophecy concerns a 70 week period, if you read it closely, he refers to a six week period and then a 62 week period (what confuses people more is that the term “shavuah” used here, does not refer to weeks, it’s a Torah term for a 7-year period.)
Accordingly, the prophecy addresses two events, one that was to occur 49 years after the rebulding of Jerusalem (beginning of v. 25).
Then there will be a destruction 62×7(434) years after that. These calculations lead us to understand
The first “anointed” is Cyrus: Isaiah proclaims that Cyrus would give the actual command to rebuild Jerusalem. God declares through the prophet, “He [Cyrus] shall build My city” (Isaiah 45:13; see also Ezra 1:1-8, 6:1-5). Indeed, it was Cyrus who issued a proclamation (ca. 537 B.C.E.) for the return, and for the rebuilding to start. This occurred forty-nine years after the destruction of Jerusalem. God declares concerning Cyrus, “He is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasures; even saying of Jerusalem: ‘She shall be built’; and to the Temple: ‘Your foundation shall be laid'” (Isaiah 44:28). Hence, the Scriptures teach that it was during the reign of Cyrus that the rebuilding of the city began. This was symbolized, first of all, by the start of construction on the Second Temple, which was completed ca. 516 B.C.E., seventy years after the destruction. It is with the completion of the Temple that the period of desolation officially terminates.
Isaiah 45:1 describes Cyrus as God’s “anointed. His decree to rebuild Jerusalem comes forty-nine years after the destruction of the city and the Temple, which is the time when an “anointed one” (Daniel 9:25) is to come to fulfill the prophecy, “. . . until an anointed one, a prince, shall be seven weeks [forty-nine years].”
When all is said and done, the biblical record must speak for itself. That record shows that it was Cyrus (Isaiah 45:13), who is given credit by God for the rebuilding of Jerusalem. As we have seen, the initial effort to rebuild was a direct result of Cyrus’ decree. All subsequent permits were based on this decree.
The first seven weeks ends in 537 B.C.E. The second segment of the Seventy Weeks period, sixty-two weeks in length, covered by verse 26, culminates in 103 B.C.E. (586-49-434=103 B.C.E.). Verse 26 indicates that “after sixty-two weeks an anointed one shall be cut off.” This “anointed one” is the High Priest Alexander Yannai (103-76 B.C.E.) who came to power just at the end of the sixty-two week period in 103 B.C.E. and was the last of the important Hasmonean leaders. The phrase “after sixty-two weeks” indicates the time frame during which the “anointed one shall be cut off,” that is, suffer karet, “excision.” The penalty accompanying karet is here aptly described as “to have nothing,” or “be no more.” This punishment is given to Alexander Yannai infamous for his unjust, tyrannical, and bloody rule. He is notorious for his open violent animosity against the Pharisees and his brazen rejection of the Oral Law. For example, Josephus records that Alexander Yannai fought against the Pharisees for six years, “and . . . slew no fewer than fifty thousand of them” (Jewish Antiquities XIII. 13. 5. ). He also “ordered some eight hundred of the Jews to be crucified, and slaughtered their children and wives before the eyes of the still living wretches” (Jewish Antiquities XIII. 14. 2. ).
“If you get a container from Gaza to Israel, how do you know it isn’t going to explode?” says Mark Regev, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “There are logistic and security issues, but the policy is to widen.”
It is due to arrive on Thursday
last week of the “siege”: 637 truckloads, consisting of 14,069 tons of humanitarian aid.
“Among the goods for Gaza civilians were 810,209 liters of heavy duty diesel fuel; 21 truckloads of milk powder and baby food; 897 tons of cooking gas; 66 truckloads of fruits and vegetables; 51 truckloads of wheat; 27 truckloads of meat, chicken and fish products; 40 truckloads of dairy products; 117 truckloads of animal feed; 36 truckloads of hygiene products; 38 trucks of clothing; 22 trucks of sugar and 4 trucks of medicine and medical equipment.
“In addition to that, 781 medical patients and accompanying individuals from the Gaza Strip crossed into Israel to receive treatment in various hospitals and 191 staff members of international organizations crossed into the Gaza Strip, and 202 crossed back from Gaza.”
Pretty impressive, especially when you consider that this is all being done by Israel for a people that wants to destroy it.
DF: Some flotilla activists planning to kill soldiers
By YAAKOV KATZ
Army sources tell ‘Post’ they have intelligence showing some participants in upcoming flotilla plan to use chemical weapons against troops; flotilla member Dror Feiler: Claims “are attempt to justify IDF violence.”
Feiler said that as long as it is up to flotilla organizers, activists planning to harm IDF soldiers will not participate in the mission.
“If Israel suspects any one, it should provide us with information so we can stop him. Violent people are not permitted to take part in the flotilla,” he said.
“All of the passengers signed a pledge of non-violence, because we don’t want a repeat of what happened in the last flotilla,” Feiler stressed. “We have no intention of confronting anyone. We just want to arrive in Gaza in peace. Israel has no reason to stop the flotilla.”

We all must stand up for that which is right and oppose those things which are not good. This is the right thing to do. One can not be complacent. We also see here that one must careful no to follow the masses to sin.
Korach and his group rebelled against the authority of Moses, against the Torah. They thought they knew better. The result was that they were all killed by GOD. In Europe for the first time since the writing of the oral tradition of the Torah almost 2000 years earlier people dared ,like Korach, to rebel against this tradition. This was the foundation of the reform movement. Again before the reform movement of “Judaism” since the writing down of the Oral tradition almost 2000 years earlier there were not different versions of Judaism. There was only The Torah of Moses as found in the Mishna, explained in the Gemora, Zohar and other Holy books. These rebels as Korach dared to defy the Divine authority of the Torah and we all know the results. Much like what happened to Korach and his crew, but this time 6 million were killed. From these lessons we should learn That publicly going against the Truth of GOD’s Torah is a stupid thing to do. But some people never learn.
We also see from parsha Korach what those who fear GOD and love his Torah should do when confronted by such a situation. When confronted by those who deny the truth of the Torah, by those who claim to know a better way. We cannot stand by idly indifferent to such evil people. This is a time to take a stand, to stand up for GOD and His Torah. One cannot just standby such a desecration of the Name of God. As what kind of love of God does a person have who would act like this. It is a time for action. Moshe told all Yisrael to “remove yourself from the evil company of Korach, take no benefit from them. Or you to will be swept away because of all their sins also.”
We should learn from this parsha from the actions of Moshe that one must stand up against those who try to lead the Jewish people away from the true way of the Torah. False leaders must be denounced. Those who love GOD and His Torah will not be found in the company of false leaders, traitors against the people of Yisrael. Those who deny the truth of the Torah. They certainly will not be friends with such evil men. Certainly those who love GOD will not be joined with these evil men so to benefit financially. Be certain as Moshe said “remove yourself from the evil company of Korach, take no benefit from them. Or you to will be swept away because of all their sins also.” In simplicity those who believe in the way of the Torah are those who should be close to us. Those who lead the Jewish people in a way not according to GOD’s Torah, or publicly speak against the truth of the Torah. It is these who those who believe in GOD’s Torah must stand against, and those who keep company with them. The evil reckless action of these false anti Torah leaders has already brought about the birth of terror state in Azza. We cannot let them lead this Jewish community to the destiny that befell the community of Korach or that of Europe.
It should also be noted that there has been similar themes in the last 3 parsha, so take these ideas to heart. In parsha Bihalotecha it said “when you go to war with the enemy in your land, sound the horns”. As we said this refers to not responding quietly, but with full force spiritually and physically. This refers to the enemy who comes from within, as Korach and those of other nations. In parsha Shelach lecha we learn again concerning false leadership, and not acting according to divine will. The result of the sin of the spies was much like that which recently befell the Jewish community in Europe, they all perished.
Korach is the same gematria as לארבעה (to 4) referring to the river that goes out of Aden to water the garden splitting to 4 heads, these allude to the 4 basic levels the Torah is understood. May it be that these all will be revealed clearly for all to behold restoring all to its ancient glory with prophesy, the Holy Temple and Mashiach quickly in our days.

When people think of “Area 51” they think its a secret military facility in the Nevada desert that’s home for captured flying saucers.
A retired engineer from the former defense company EG&G, which handled the US government’s most sensitive projects, said he was put on to the Roswell project in Area 51 in 1978. He is quoted as saying that the Soviet Union seized from Germany at the end of the war the jet-propelled, single wing Horton Ho 229 – a fighter said to be the forerunner of the modern B2 stealth bomber.
Stalin was inspired by the extraterrestrial hysteria following Orson Welles’ 1938 War of the Worlds radio broadcast and wanted to throw the American populace into a fearful frenzy. Stalin and Mengele collaborated to make a Alien Hoax on the United states. Stalin used captured Nazi aircraft designs to build the plane, according to Jacobsen. She says he had Mengele provide surgically altered “grotesque child-sized aviators” who were supposed to climb out of the aircraft and be mistaken for visitors from Mars.
Mengele the Nazi doctor, who experimented on prisoners in Auschwitz and fled to South America after the war, was supposedly enlisted to create a crew of “grotesque, child-size aviators” in return for a eugenics laboratory.
The Russians sent a plane filled with “alien-like” children, aged 12 or 13, who Stalin wanted to land in America and cause hysteria similar to the 1938 broadcast. But, the plane, remotely piloted by another aircraft, crashed and the Americans hushed up the incident.
. Area 51, is a military installation in the Nevada desert about 75 miles north of Las Vegas, the government refuses to discuss what goes on there. Area 51 was organized in the 1950s under the auspices of the Atomic Energy Commission, the successor to the Manhattan Project, which used the adjacent Nevada Test and Training Range to test atomic bombs. Because of this relationship with the nuclear program, Everything that happens at Area 51 is a secret — ” classified.”
IS THIS ALL
The government has never officially confirmed that Area 51 exists.
