Many people will find they were greatly mistaken. They believe something like that one day there will be a booming voice from heaven telling all the Jews the time of the Messiah has arrived and in a few hours a magic cloud will take them with all their belongings to Israel, the Holy Land. Such beliefs are as fairy tales and have no basis in the words of our Holy Prophets and sages. They are akin to heresy.
It is surely true God will work great miracles ushering in the Messianic age, but we must do our part to bring it in.
The God has done His part and opened the way, and is waiting for YOU :
It is time now for those seeking to come closer to God and develop to all they can be spiritually to come to the Holy land and work on these things here, now. It is not Gods job to force you to come to usher in the Messianic age. You must do this of your own free will.
Otherwise time may very well pass you by ………………………………
Don’t put the Master of the world to task !
The punishment of the exile of Jews of Spain the rabbis of the time wrote that this happened because of the wealth the Jews of the time had and the comfort in which the Jews lived.Their beautiful houses and their wealth caused the envy of their gentile neighbors, which encouraged their jelousy and hostility. As opposed to German and French Jews who were accustomed to anti-Semitism, the Spanish Jews were not and they never saw their oppression coming. COULD THIS HAPPEN IN AMERICA ?
The world is in the midst of harsh judgment and the Creator is crying out to the Jews to come home. Since 1948 the state of Israel was established, the redemption began! The exile is coming to an end ! What are you waiting for. Do the needs of the world and your own soul not matter to you ?
Flour and water mixed after 18 minutes turns into “Chumatz” (leaven), we try to bake the dough before 15 minutes so this does not happen.
Pessach is Pretty important if we spell it out as
פהסמךחת=613 (all the commandments). The sages say Passach is a time for searching for a persons defects, like the way each person must search their house for “chumatz” (leaven). God illuminates our Nashama (Soul) so that we may see ourselves clearer. Like the way we use a candle to search for “Chumatz”, and a candle represents the “Nashama”. As it says “ the candle of God is the Nashama of man”. It states in the Zohar that from Rosh chodesh (New moon) of the month of Nisson there is an increase in “Bina” (Divine Understanding). With this power we can search within ourselves and see what it is that is causing our exile from GOD, Divine revelation. So that we may return to GOD completely. ”Chumatz” is not nullified like most things even when there is less than 1 part to 60. Any “chumatz” (which is arrogance) cannot be tolerated. How could one be arrogant if they really knew they were standing before GOD ?. An arrogant person performing religious acts is only a “charade”. They have not even begun the kind of Divine service that leads to ”ruach haKodesh”, and redemption.
The Pesach sacrifice was to be offered with “ head on its knees and on its innards. This is like “Ibor” called in the Zohar “legs folded” and “ folded within three”. This is when chochmah , binah and dat are concealed within chesed-gevurah-tiferet and chesed-gevurah-tiferet are concealed within netzach-hod and yesod. Physically, this is reflected in the fact that the embryo is postured in the crouched fetal position in the womb with its head bent between its knees.
One must be completely dedicated to GOD not themselves. The Temple offering for Passach the “corbon Pessach”, May we bring it quickly, is roasted whole, including the head and tail. This shows that returning to GOD, Leaving our personal and National exile requires returning to GOD from all aspects of our existence. One must dedicate all aspects of their life to GOD, Blessed is his Name ! Every individual goes through his personal exile, and must separate from those things that bind him from coming close to GOD. Those things which are strange and not part of his divine service. We must do this in all aspects of our life, thus removing ourselves from our personal Egypt (which means confinement), by this fulfilling in part the commandment of remembering the redemption from Egypt. It is stated in the Zohar that “The remembrance of being taken out of Egypt with great miracles is the gateway to divine power, a root of the whole Torah, the basis of all the commandments and the real “emuna” (faith) of the Jewish Soul”. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochi says “ this is our season of joy and gladness when we celebrate the great honor GOD showed to us by taking us out from under the power of impurity into the power of his Holiness.” It is the day as R. Abba says “ GOD took Yisrael from being under the power of impurity to be united with his name, causing them to be raised up above all the upper and lower beings”. The sages tell us one reason for the exile of Yisrael in Egypt was because when GOD told Avraham Avinu that he would give his decedents the land of Canaan as an eternal inheritance Avraham misused his power of speech when he replied “ How will I Know ”. Because of this lack of faith we went down to the refining furnace called Egypt. Now on Pessach we have the power to redeem the power of speech from exile. We do this by with great joy and excitement and a high heart telling the story of the redemption from Egypt, till the point G-d willing they remember. The Zohar says one who does this will rejoice with the Shechinah in the world to come for rejoicing brings rejoicing. The Oar Ha Chayim teaches that we bring redemption closer discussing Holy matters celebrating the redemption of speech. By remembering the great love GOD showed to us in redeeming us from Egypt we can draw strength to know he has given us strength to overcome all obstacles yielding the power of redemption !
In the Torah Billam the Rusha states “ GOD brings them out of Egypt”, In Sefer Oar Ha Chyim it is explained that this is written in an active sense since it is on Passach that sparks of Holiness are freed from impurity. The 7 days of Passach parallel the 7 days of creation. What we strive for creatively, intellectually, emotionally and physically can cause great changes in the continual of process of the renewal of all life including ourselves from this time period Passach is a time of profound personal spiritual redemption, as it says in Toldot Yaacov Yosef that on Passach “ A man merits access to the eternal wellsprings of life”.
One part of doing this is by the 4 cups of wine at the sedar, by this we rectify the sin of Adam as the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil was a grape. By drinking the 4 cups of wine we can remove the separation created by the sin of Adam, each cup has potential to remove aspects of the 4 “Klipot” that separate us from GOD ! Thus removing our desires for actions not supportive or against divine will, feelings of our heart that are not the love of GOD, thoughts that are not good, and barriers to divine inspiration. The wine of Pesach is a Tikun by Imma. We learn in Pre Atz Chyim by drinking the 4 cups wine there decends “mochin” down the throat to the head of Rachel. Matzah is a tikun by Abba.
Matzah seems to be only a little water and flour, but the Zohar tells us it is the bread of Faith, only on passach GOD gives it the power to be a gateway for “emunah”. If we add the letter “ו” to מצה (matzah) we have מצוה (mitzvah). The letter ו of the Divine name reveals our Ruach, our emotional soul, when one involves their heart in Divine service how great this is. Matza has a lot of potential to nullify evil סמא”ל (the Devil) + 4 letters = מצה . Rabbi Ashlag expains in the Hakdamah to Tikunim concerning this that this added letter ו gives “chassadim” to the Malchut, by this the Chuchmah in it illuminates. It is similar to the Manna in the desert some had more some less, but all had the measure of an omer. To some its taste was bland to others it tasted as what ever they desired. The Ari teaches in Shar pasukim that “Smura Matzah” is Machut of Bina, which is the ד of אחד . Think about this deeply as it touches on many things.
We can turn the “bread of affliction” to the “bread of redemption” ! Matzah in Atbash system of letter exchange becomes יה”צ. From the name י”ה comes Divine wisdom, While צ is the vessel for this wisdom. One fit to receive it. צ represent the “Sadeek”. It states in the Gemora a child does not have wisdom till he has tasted Wheat. Yet this type of wisdom from Matzah is very high. As the Mittler Rebbe said “ The Aor Makiff (surrounding light) of Chuchmah is Emunah”. The matzah also works to complete our dat as Taught by Rabbi Natan of Bresslov. The 3 matzot correspond to Chaba’d of Dat, also to Myriam’s well, the Cloud that surrounded Yisrael in the desert and the Manna. By eating Matzah we are able to remove the delusions of this world from our brains, and the scream out to GOD with words like ”thunder” when reading the Hagada. .
הגדהשלפסח + 1= מלכות, Through the “Hagada” we can reveal GOD’s Kingship which ultimately is Mashiach. This is also reflected by spelling out each letter of הגדה as ה”הדל”תגימ”לה”י=ישראל +1.
Passach itself ( פסח ) by Atbash becomes וחס meaning “and having mercy”. This shows us that on Passach we draw down the power to Divine mercy. As it was by this Divine mercy that we were freed from Egypt w hen we had reached the lowest level of defilement. GOD told Avraham that our exile of Egypt would be 400 years, but GOD in his great mercy he took us out in only 210 years. ”Choroset” חרוסת permeates to חסרות, mercy of Ruth. This illudes To David HaMelach and the final redemption.
Passach is called “the time of our freedom”, it was from Passach that we went from the lowest depths of enslavement and spiritual depravity to the highest spiritual states at the sea, and then stood before GOD and received the Torah. The word Passach means to Jump. The spiritual growth of Passach is not a gradual thing, but made in leaps and jumps. It is said that rejoicing over the redemption from Egypt leads to further redemption.
Eliyahu Ha Novi is know to be at 2 places. At every circumcision, as he is called in the Holy books “Angel of the Covenant”. It was before eating the Corban Passach that Moshe or some say Yuhoshua circumcised Yisrael so they could eat of the Corban Passach, then came redemption ! Eliyahu (Elijah) is also invited to the Passach Sader. We even set out a cup of wine for him in every home. Then when we open the door for Eliyahu towards the conclusion of the Seder, after all the previous preparations we say “ Pour out your wrath ….. Pursue them in anger” . May it be in the merit of the Sadeekem in the Gan Aden and now on the Earth that GOD has great mercy upon us so that we will see the prophesy of the Prophet Malachi fulfilled with Eliyahu coming to us turning the hearts of children to their parents and parents to their children with the coming of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days !
The Rebbi of Karlin said ”Great is a man of Yisrael in the way He is formed, allowing Him to be a son of the King ”. It is of this quality the Torah is speaking of when it speaks of freedom. It was for this quality that we merited being redeemed from Egypt. This Holiness obligates us to be careful not to transgress the border between freedom and a state of lawless abandonment of any constant real values of virtue. Behavior which would bring shame to our father the King of His Holy nation Yisrael and all creation. The freedom we are talking about places upon us borders upon our behavior, giving us more obligations which come upon such a man from God because of the heights of His level in the scheme of creation. Because of this a free man must be careful with matters involving his Honor. But lawless abandon of Godly virtue is of man at a lowly level. In this is a aspect of slavery. As a slave’s disgracefulness adds to him losing restraint and control. As he just really doesn’t care. Such a man will do all that arises of his emotions, he loses control over himself. He goes from the realm of intellect that is upright, transgressing going after his desires. We see this in lowly people, they do their evil desires. The true image of man parishes from them. Leaving them with an image as any human being, when His true nature is beyond this. As his soul has heard the voice of God speaking at Sinai and has experienced the wonders God has done for the Hebrew people. In the beginning he believes in his own eyes that his actions are his desires, but in the end he is only a slave to his evil inclination.
If we look at Yaakov’s blessing from Yizchak we can see how something lowly can be something great as Yitzchak said ”Your seed shall be as the sand of the earth, you shall spread to the north, east , south and west.” During the times we live in now it seems that many of the Jewish people have fell to a low spiritual place. Many of our people now are as low as the sand of the earth (being immersed only in physical matters, with no spiritual awareness), sitting among the nations in exile. But as the great Rabbi Hillel said ”My falling is my rising”. The seemingly lowly state we are in now is only a necessary step. As was the captivity in Egypt, to bring about redemption. As by the lowliness created by a lack of spirituality, they can appreciate it once it is truly found.
The Ruach (spirit) of Yisrael is the internal aspect of His Nefesh (animal soul), its instinctual awareness known as leah. It is only this that can free him from from the slavery of his evil inclination ruling upon all his limbs. Which has become his master. The source the true Ruach (spirit) of Yisrael is in the many mitzvot, Positive commands and prohibitions. For this reason one is required to do many mitzvot to establish His freedom. Only in this way is there true freedom of the Nefesh (animal soul). But to one who does not know this they, God forbid, think that all the mitzvot remove all joy from life. When it is exactly the opposite. One who has never tasted the true atmosphere of people observing God’s Holidays will never understand this. For this reason it says concerning the Passover offering ”No stranger may eat from it”. Better is the verse ”taste and see that yhv”h is good”, with the coming of our righteous mashiach quickly in our days.
Also know that during these 7 weeks until the time of receiving the Torah anew on Shavuot God gives us a special gift each week, each day for the betterment of our souls by allowing us to develop our soul powers of doing kindness during the first week, the 2nd week discipline, the 3rd week harmony and balance, the 4th week endurance so to be able to obtain any goal, 5th week perfecting minor details involved in all we do, 6th week making the greatest perfection of any circumstance, and in the 7th and final week having the kingship of God revealed in all our thoughts speech and actions. This is called ”counting of the omer ”. From all of this God willing we shall be ready to receive the Torah.

You can not really read the Torah and not see how God feels about the Land of Israel. You have to do some major intellectual contortions to study it – or the Talmud, and believe that the Jewish people are the same on the Land as off, or that they are involved in mitzvot on the same level outside as inside The Land. As the sages teach us. Torah mitzvot are meant to be performed in Israel. Performing mitzvot outside of Israel is for practice (Sifri, Devarim 43).) A Jewish person runs to do a mitzvah – and yet so many Jews balk at performing one of the greatest, living in the Holy Land. I find this perplexing to say the least. Moreover, I feel sorry for Jews who do not understand the incredible honor and fulfillment of meriting to watch this nation be rebuilt. I wonder how “religious” Jews in the Diaspora can stand to miss such an occasion. Are they going to miss the coming of Mashiach too ? It’s like saying that you are a professional golfer. You have the best training, the best golf clubs, but you have never been to the golf course !
How do we know that the exile is almost finished, and the final redemption must be near. ?
Well first of all It is written concerning the Final Redemption:
It shall come to be on that day that the Lord will once again show His hand… And He will gather in the dispersed ones of Judah from the four corners of the earth. (Isaiah 11:11-12)
It is know that in the era of the Redemption itself will come the end of the exile, rebuilding the Temple, gathering all the Jewish people, bringing them back to Israel, and the Messiah will usher in an age of universal peace.
According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics there were 13,421,000 Jews worldwide in 2010.
On the eve of Israel’s 62nd Independence Day (2010) 5,726,000 Jews live in Israel.
ONE SHOULD NOTICE THAT THIS IS A BIG STEP TOWARD THE COMPLETION OF THE REDEPTION.
ALMOST HALF OF THE JEW’S IN THE WORLD HAVE ALREADY BEEN “GATHERED” AS HAS BEEN PROPHESIEZED AND LIVE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL
RIGHT NOW !
THIS IS NOT A SMALL THING.
G-d has promised that ‘I will return the judges as in
days of old.’ The Sanhedrin will return before the
revelation of Mashiach, and in fact this will be one of the signs [of
his imminent arrival] .
(Rambam Perush HaMishnah, Sanhedrin 1:3)
THERE HAS ALREADY BE REESTABLISHED THE SANHEDRIN IN JERUSALEM.
Prophecy will return before the coming of
Mashiach (Hilchos Melachim 12:2)
The Rambam says in Hilchot Shmita and Yovel that when the Jews return to the land of Israel they will have to start keeping Tithes and Shmita (Sabatical year) and start counting the Yovel (Jubilee year).Then these commandments will be considered Deoraita (a obligation from the Torah).
HE ALSO WRITES THAT AT THAT TIME WILL RETURN PROPHESY.
It is very clear that with close to half of the Jewish people living now in the land of Isreal we are very much in the later phases of the gathering of the exiles.
In the book of Genesis, God promises to Abraham the land of Canaan, which comprises the territory of ten nations: the Kenites, the Kenizites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizites, the Refaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites. In the time of Moses, however, whenever God lists the peoples of Canaan whose land He will give to the Jewish people, only the last seven of these ten are mentioned. The seven nations are a earthly manifestation of the seven evil midot, they are the vessels which broke. God only gave the latter seven nations to the Jews in the time of Moses, and we will inherit the land of the other three nations in the future, when Mashiach comes.
These three nations are Seir which is the land of Edom cooresponds to keter,Moab is Chachmah and Ammon is Bina.
The Midrash explains that 80 percent of the Jewish people were killed during the plague of darkness in Egypt, they were not redeemed. Many Jews didn’t want to leave Egypt, so God decreed that they would die there in the darkness. It a pretty dark time now for most of the Jew’s of the world who cling to their ‘secular’ identity.
How important is it to return to “Arz Yisrael” (the land of Israel) “Resh Lakish was bathing in the Jordan, and Rabba b. bar Chanah , who had come from Babylonia to study Torah, approached and extended his hand. Resh Lakish said to him, “I swear I hate you!” Rashi explains: “By not moving to Eretz Yisrael in Ezra’s day, the Jews of Babylonia prevented the Divine Presence from returning and resting on the Second Temple.”
Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi in the Kuzari teaches that the great goal God had planned for the Second Temple was not fulfilled. For if most of the Jewish people had responded to the call and returned to Eretz Yisrael (The land of Israel) God would not have destroyed the Temple. Rather, the Divine Presence would have rested there forever, and God would have brought the Messiah. However the majority and the important ones among them stayed in Babylon, not willing to be separated from their dwelling places and businesses. does this sound familiar ?
In the Tikuney Zohar Chadash Rebbe Shimon says that there will be another plague of darkness before the final redemption. The hour is late, do not be “caught” in the dark.
Malchut Bait David (The kingship of the house of David) will not be established in L.A. or New York. Chanukah on the calander comes before Purim. First we must work the spiritual redempion in the land and there will follow the outer redempion of Purim of the rest of the world. There is a lot to do come home to the land while you still can. It did not work out to well for the European Jewish community.
Ishmael is the father of the Islam world; Esau is the father of Edom, the Christian world; and Jacob is the father of the Jewish world, all under Abraham.
“Edom” became the Roman empire. In Leviticus Rabbah (xiii.) Rome, under the name of “Edom,” is compared to a boar, and the symbolic name “Seir” was used by the poets of the Middle Ages not only for Rome (comp. Ecclus. 1. 26, Hebr.), but also for Christianity (Zunz, “Literaturgesch.” p. 620).

Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States, the new center of Edom, the Christian World. It is the new seat of the Roman Empire, the new Rome.
The original name for Washington was Rome (Rome on the Potomac). Rome, Maryland, was the original name of a community within Prince George’s County, Maryland, which would eventually become Washington, District of Columbia. Specifically, Rome was the original community name of Capitol Hill, upon which the United States Capitol Building sits. In 1663, the property that would become the Capitol’s site was inscribed in the Maryland property records as “Rome,” its owner a man named Francis Pope. The southern boundary of this property was shaped by a river named for the river that runs through Rome, Italy, the Tiber.
The community was part of the ten mile square tract of land which would become the American capital Washington, D.C., and its owner, Daniel Carroll, transferred the community to the federal government after the amendment to the United States Constitution sanctioning the building of the new United States capital city was ratified.
Daniel Carroll was the chairman of a three-man commission appointed by President George Washington to find a suitable location for the capital city. A signer of the Declaration of Independence, Daniel Carroll was a Roman Catholic educated by Jesuits in Maryland and France. His brother John Carroll became the first Catholic bishop in America, presiding over the See of Baltimore, which included Washington, D.C. In part, the more frequent usage of the name Columbia reflected a rising American neoclassicism, exemplified in the tendency to use Roman terms and symbols. The selection of the eagle as the national bird, the use of the term Senate to describe the upper house of Congress, and the naming of Capitol Hill and the Capitol building were all conscious evocations of Roman precedents.
The Zohar teaches that Rome will lead the nations of the world in a final and losing assault against Israel and the Moshiach (Messiah), at the time of the Final Redemption in the “end of days”. At this time the “new Rome” will not be a good place for Jews to be living in.
It is interesting to note that the Washington Monument’s height is 555 ft and has a capstone of 3300 lbs.
In the Bible Jacob gave a tribute to Esau of 550 animals, including kolel of 5 is included for the 5 animal species (Goats, Sheep, Camels, Cows, and Donkeys) this is 555.
It was the Masons erected the Washington Monument as a pillar in the Capital of Edom for the country to rally around that is 555 feet high. This is not just a coincidence.
US Capital Building (the home of Congress) has 541 rooms, since 541 is the numerical value of the Israel (in Hebrew).
The Washington Monument resembles a giant Hebrew letter “VAV” of numerical value 6. And the reason this is significant is that 555 x 6 = 3330. There are exactly 3330 years from the giving of the Torah at Mt Sinai and 5778 HC (2018 CE), the year given by Rav Ahhlag and other sages for the Geula (final redemption)
Furthermore, in 2018 CE we will be in the 115th US Congress, and will also be the 115th Jubilee year, counting as the sages do from Adam to 5778 HC.

Rand Paul is no stranger to welcoming the support of white supremacist groups, but welcoming Anti-Semitic support is taking the cake.
Ron Paul Rand’s father, has been closely associated over the past two decades with a faction that described itself as “paleolibertarian,” led by former Ron Paul aide Lew Rockwell and the late writer Murray Rothbard. They eagerly forged an alliance with the “paleoconservatives” behind Patrick Buchanan, the columnist and former presidential candidate whose trademarks are nativism, racism and anti-Semitism.
Ron Paul’s website mourned anti-Semitic author Eustace Mullins
“Eustace Mullins is the author of the virulently anti-Jewish book “The Biological Jew” (Faith and Service Books, Stauton, VA, 1968). Mullins, in this lengthy comparison of Jews with biological parasites, wrote:
The Jew has always functioned best as a panderer, a pornographer, a master of prostitution, an enemy of the prevailing sexual standards and prohibitions of the gentile community….
We must remember that there is no Jewish crime per se, since the existence of the Jewish parasite on the host is a crime against nature, because its existence imperils the health and life of the host…
This religious ceremony of drinking the blood of an innocent gentile child is basic to the Jew’s entire concept of his existence as a parasite, living off the blood of the host…
The Jews do not want anyone to know what Nazism is. Nazism is simply this–a proposal that the German people rid themselves of the parasitic Jews. The gentile host dared to protest against the continued presence of the parasite, and attempted to throw it off. It was an ineffectual reaction, because it was emotional and
Mullins’ writings are a standby on the Klan/neo-Nazi circuit.”
DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT HERE IS THE LINK
Rand Paul like his father is not Israel’s ally. Seven million Israeli citizens could be murdered by their Islamic enemies if we withdraw our financial and military support. To continue to live, the people of Israel do not need our “well-wishing” and “benign example,” but concrete support. Rand wants to cut off aid to Israel’s enemies, but also aid to Israel.
Rand Paul has been cleverer than his father, dressing up the same message in more ambiguity, and redirecting questions with formulaic and deliberately vague answers. For example on the 9/11 Truther Alex Jones show, Rand Paul explained that his technique when answering questions about the War on Terror differs from his father, in that he emphasizes that there is a constitutional right to declare war. Which is his disingenuous way of attempting to seem pro-national defense, while avoiding talking about his real views on the War on Terror.
I really do not get some self-professed conservatives getting behind this guy Rand Paul. He’s an apologist for radical Islam.
“Iran feels threatened because we have troops in Iraq and troops in Afghanistan… we have to understand their perspective, that they feel threatened.”
Rand Paul, 2008
Rand Paul says it was our actions that caused the attacks on September 11th, wtf. Concerning this, his campaign manager, suggested there was “truth on both sides”.
Rand paul is for shutting down Guantanamo Bay and banning the forceful interrogation of Al Queda terrorists. Not only that he would like to see the dangerous terrorists currently held in Guantanamo Bay deported back to their countries of origin, where in his own words, “It’d take them a while to get back over here.”
Rand paul wants to cut the deficit by cutting defense spending and boasts that if he had been in the Senate, he would have held up the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
it won’t be long before Obama and company start to seriously scale down the military to pay for their domestic big government agenda. Clinton did it and it hamstrung us terribly in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. It was noted everywhere at the time.
Paul will dash off across the aisle to help progressives strip down the American military. How many young Americans will have to die in a decade from now after what will eventually be another attack? And that will happen because our military will be weak and under-funded at the time we may well have to act, whether we like it, or not.
Living in denial will not help fight the REAL terrorist threat.
Some other thing on Rand Paul that throw out the Red flag :
Rand Paul hired Chris Hightower as a campaign spokesman. When some blogs found that Hightower had “Happy N*&*a Day” with a picture of an African American being lynched posted on his myspace wall and had a blog about Black people looking at him funny because of his KKK hoodie, he resigned while Paul defended him.
Rand Paul celebrated his primary victory at an exclusive country club that had a history of not accepting Black people. Rand Paul is a man of the people, yet he celebrates where regular people aren’t allowed. Elitist southern golf clubs, like the Bowling Green Country Club have a history of discriminating against Black people, women, Jews and anyone who isn’t rich.
Politicians often find out that they were given money from people with questionable motives or backgrounds. Most often they give that money back. Not Rand Paul. White Supremacist groups and websites such as Stormfront regularly raise “money bombs” for Rand Paul and link directly to his site. He has also taken money from white supremacist William Johnson, who his father nominated for a judgeship and Carl Ford who is a member of the league of the South. His opponent Jack Conway has demanded he give back the money but while his campaign has issued statements, he hasn’t returned the money.
If Rand Paul is not a white supremacist, why do all these white supremacists volunteer for his campaign and donate money to him? Do they admire his choice of elitist golf clubs or his opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Maybe they admire the racist newsletters his father wrote or believe the Neo-Nazi who claimed that Ron Paul was a white supremacist or saw the picture with Ron Paul and the founders of the Neo-Nazi site Stormfront.
Both Ron and his son opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for forcing private businesses to integrate. They will claim that it is for “libertarian” reasons. But if you look deeper into the Ron Paul “Revolution,” you will see that it is just as connected to white supremacist movements as libertarian ones. Ron Paul is not your traditional ideological Libertarian. His brand of Libertarianism is rooted in the John Birch Society and the Ludwig Von Mises Institute. Both of these institutions try and hide their racism, while promoting racist policies.
What Ron Paul and Rand Paul do is provide an intellectual cover and defense for blatant racism. This, along with Ron Paul’s history of promoting racism through his newsletters, is why they receive so much support from white supremacists. The two driving forces for the Paul’s political philosophy, the Ludwig Von Mises Institute and the John Birch society both serve as intellectual fronts for racism. The Ludwig Von Mises society is labeled a Neo-Confederate organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its support of the South in the Civil War and criticisms of Abraham Lincoln and the John Birch society is famous for producing people who go on to be Neo-Nazi leaders such as Revilo P. Oliver, Tom Metzger,William Pierce, and Kevin Strom.
In his newsletters, Ron Paul would often praise white supremacist leader David Duke.
In 1991, Ron Paul wrote:
“Is David Duke’s new prominence, despite his losing the gubernatorial election, good for anti-big government forces? our priority should be to take the anti-government, anti-tax, anti-crime, anti-welfare loafers, anti-race privilege, anti-foreign meddling message of Duke, and enclose it in a more consistent package of freedom.”
Given that Rand has done nothing to distance himself from his father’s views, and has no other legs to stand on than his father’s name, one can assume that Rand holds the same views. Given Ron Paul’s racist newsletters and his connections to the John Birch Society and the Ludwig Von Mises institute either the Pauls come from the white supremacist wing of the Libertarian movement, or the Libertarian wing of the white supremacist movement !
If Rand Paul and those like him influence republicans to with hold support for Israel and thus make supporting Israel like supporting Hamas, illegal. As supporting Israel will been seen as against the interest of U.S. foreign policy. And at the same time The Democrats continue to appease the Islamic fundamentalist states. This will be the situation which will bring Jews into disfavor in America. The impending collapse of the Dollar because of the national debt, and further collapses of the stock market resulting could lead the Jew’s to be named as a scape goat as has happened so many times before.
But know :
“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will cursed; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Those Who Bless Israel Will Be Blessed and Those Who Curse Israel Will Be Cursed
Like in the story of Esther in the Bible salvation will come from one place of another.
As it is written :
” Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther Think not to yourself that you will escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether hold thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knows whether thou are come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Concerning our time it is written
“ Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom, you who dwell in the land of Uz; but to you also the cup shall pass; you shall become drunk and strip yourself bare
The punishment of your iniquity, O daughter of Zion, is accomplished; he will keep you in exile no longer; but your iniquity, O daughter of Edom, he will punish; he will uncover your sins.”
This is amazing as Jeremiah is referring to the exile of Israel by Edom, who is Rome at the end of the 2nd Temple period. But he wrote Lamentations even before the destruction of the first Temple, by Bavel.
WE SEE FROM THIS :
Israel will no more be exiled,
but he who takes on the role of
the “daughter of Edom” will regret it.

A certain American Military Man can be quoted as saying “With the current administration in the United States and the general negative attitude towards Israeli self-defense within its own government and in global leadership, Israel is doing an excellent job towards its own demise.”
When asked :
HOW DO I THINK ISRAEL WILL HANDLE THE IRANIAN REACTION WHEN ISRAEL STRIKES WITH THE ULTIMATE TRIUMPH OF TECHNOLOGICAL AND MILITARY SUPERIORITY?
“I truly wish Israel would use nukes, but they do not want to be the second nation to responsibly use them because the third nation will make sure the first two are obliterated. Instead, Israel WILL LOSE 1/3 of her population in the coming “war” (not some skirmish like going into the Gaza,G-d fordid). She will then decimate her enemies in hopes of securing safety and peace for generations to come. She will be wrong as the Bible says, but that is something we will all witness (unless (glimmer of hope)) we are so lucky to have some sudden evacuation prior to hell on earth, though after a watching Band of Brothers all weekend, I have to admit our WWII ancestors truly faced such a hell on earth for what???? Did they sacrifice to permit OBAMA and his Commi friends to destroy the entire thread of a great society and burn every treaty we have with nations that have some moral thread left such as England? and ???? Oh well, too much to rant about. G-D just let the sh-t fly and leave me out of it, this time. Thanks.”
A U.S. Intelligence official “breaks silence” on Israel situation”
U.S. Intelligence Official about Israel: “This is just the beginning”
Northeast Intelligence Network director Doug Hagmann interviewed a highly-placed U.S. intelligence official late yesterday who warned of the increasing probability of abandonment of Israel by the U.S. and other Western countries based on what he termed “malicious intelligence.”
“Remember that term,” advised this well-placed intelligence official, “you’ll be hearing it again.”
“This is just the beginning,” stated this intelligence official, who wished to remain anonymous. This official stated Israel could be about to lose the support of the United States.
“I have every reason to believe, based on what I’ve seen at my level of [security] clearance especially over the last several years, that Israel will soon be completely on their own… or worse.” When asked what could be worse than losing the support of the United States, he stated: “when our administration provides more support to Arab countries [with] financial and military aid, undercutting Israel’s defense efforts all while pushing Israel to succumb to the pressure of unreasonable demands designed to end with their political annihilation as a nation.”
According to this official, the U.S. has been slowly proceeding down this road. He cited the 2005 surrender of Gush Katif to the Palestinian Authority as one critical example of the slow dismantlement of Israel as a viable nation. “Despite critical intelligence outlining in every possible manner imaginable that this would be a disastrous move leading to the events we are seeing today, it was done anyway,” he stated.
“We are seeing the very scenario play out today that was outlined in intelligence briefs three and four years ago. Knowing that, there is something very wrong with this picture,” he stated.
He added that Western media is also playing a very big role in the current war in the Middle East, thanks, in part, to carefully worded statements prepared by political officials in Washington. Officials in the current administration, like some previous administrations, submit carefully crafted informational releases to a media that is controlled by those having special interests that are contrary to a legitimate peace in the Middle East.
“The game is rigged. At the highest levels of power in the U.S. and even by some in power in Israel, the game is rigged,” he emphasized.
The next obvious question in this interview was, of course, “how is it rigged?” followed by ”how are you in a position to know?”
This official responded by stating that he has spent the last two decades serving in “an unfortunate position where intelligence and politics meet and often collide.” Now, merely days away from retirement, he stated that he is looking forward to leaving his position after conducting over 20 years of intelligence work “that has been molded and massaged to advance the agendas of a select few.”
He continued: “When an intelligence work product that has been thoroughly and properly vetted is submitted to those in Washington, and I see a completely different and entirely inaccurate product intentionally submitted and aired in the media, only to be told ‘that is the way it must be,’ then I know it’s time for me to leave.”
“It is obvious to me that most Americans don’t understand or don’t care what is actually happening in the Middle East relative to Israel. People don’t understand history, or have been subjected to revisionist history based on lies and more lies. Add to that a media that fails to provide an accurate assessment of what is taking place in Israel, in Gaza, and you end up with a very bad situation for Israel,” stated this source. He added that the disinformation coming and going to and from Washington is getting worse, as is the media bias against Israel.
The events currently taking place in Israel are extremely perilous for Israel and especially perilous for the national security of the United States, according to this source. Contrary to the accepted assessments of “Middle East experts” in the news, our intelligence services have “ample evidence to prove active collusion and support between HAMAS and other terrorist organizations, both Sunni and Shite. Further, there is a level of Iranian complicity in this war that is not being talked about, or being dismissed out of hand because of the schism between the Sunni and Shia sects,” stated this source.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you;
I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
The Lord to Abram, Genesis 12:2-3
Within the quote from Genesis above, which is primarily known as the “Abrahamic Covenant,” very probably lies the destiny of the United States of America should our government “curse” the State of Israel and abandon her to face the numerous and very powerful existential threats alone. That covenant made by the Lord was unconditional and made eternal through the unilateral sealing of it by God Himself as recorded in Genesis 15.
Blessings or curses are rendered unto specific individuals or entire nations depending on whether they bless or curse Israel. This is the extremely perilous domain into which the United States of America has recently been taken by the dictum of a world-socialist elite who have in the past decade determined our national policy with respect to Israel.
Concern over these passages as they could relate to the United States of America has been a great concern ever since it became increasingly evident that the U.S. was imposing a political will upon that which the Lord had ordained as His Will for Israel and His people and the Land given to them. The reestablishment of the State of Israel in 1948, exactly as foretold in Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Jeremiah 32:36-44 and Ezekiel 36 and 37, are prophecy in the process of a literal fulfillment. These facts are an unmistakable indicator of where planet earth resides within the prophetic timeline.
It is my opinion that the events we are witnessing at this time are setting the stage for the next great war in the Middle East,
Hannity on the Fox News said there are 35 Jihad Terroist
camps in America
Right here in America!
has our Government just gone insane or what?
The American public was never supposed to know. The 2006 Justice Department document that exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S. was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Sheik Muburak Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed—all of them, that is, except one—that Christian Action Network now reveals in the documentary Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.
The Soldiers of Allah training video teaches American students how to operate AK-47 rifles, rocket launchers, and machine guns; how to kidnap Americans and then kill them; how to conduct sabotage and subversive operations; and how to use mortars and explosives.
With almost 50 terrorist attacks on American soil linked to Jamaat ul-Fuqra—ranging from bombings to murder to plots to blowing up American landmarks—what will it take for the government to protect its citizens from self-professed enemies of Americans? They hide across 35 American cities as innocuous-sounding as Hancock, NY; Red House, VA; and Seattle, WA.
The 2006 Justice Department document that exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S. was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Sheik Muburak Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed, all of them, that is, except one that Christian Action Network now reveals in the documentary Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.”
Wall Street Journalist Danny Pearl was on his way to a meeting with Jamaat ul-Fuqra (JF) founder, Sheik Mubarak Ali Gilani in Lahore, Pakistan on January 22, 2002. He was on the hunt for al Qaeda connections when he was abducted and slaughtered by Islamic Extremist and British citizen, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh.
Were there any connections between the shadowy Sheik Gilani and the murder of Pearl? Pakistani authorities had Gilani jailed and later put under house arrest. Given the turmoil in that country, we may never know the extent of his involvement.
What we do know is that since the founding of JF, or the “community of the impoverished,” by Gilani in 1980, a network of 45 paramilitary training camps in the US and Canada have been created. The group here in the US has committed attacks and robberies, acquired contraband arms, engaged in counterfeit activities, and proselytized effectively among Afro-American prison inmates. JF members participated in the 1993 terror bombing of the World Trade Center.
JF seeks to “purify Islam” through violence.
What is of great concern is that federal and state law enforcement authorities have investigated and monitored JF and its front group Muslims of the Americas (MoA) and delisted the group as a terrorist organization. Nor has the IRS taken away MoA’s charitable tax exempt status.
Look at this response by the State Department to a question about why JF was taken off the official terrorist list.
Question: The group headed by Sheik Gilani used to be designated by the State Department as a terrorist group but it was taken off the list. Why?
Answer: Jamaat ul-Fuqra has never been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. It was included in several recent annual terrorism reports under “other terrorist groups,” i.e., groups that had carried out acts of terrorism but that were not formally designated by the Secretary of State. However, because of the group’s inactivity during 2000, it was not included in the most recent terrorism report covering that calendar year.
Here’s what the MoA has to say about Jews, Christians, Gays , America and violence its website:
“Jews are an example of human Satans. This is why Jews are the founders of Satan worship and Masonic lodges, and are now trying to take over the entire globe in which the global religion is to be Satanism….In the US there are now thousands of temples where Satan is worshipped. This Satanism has now become the ultimate tool in the hands of Zionists. ”
“If you ask any Christian ‘What is meant by belief in God Almighty?’ he will not be able to give you any rational explanation. On the contrary, he will confuse you, and damage you psychologically…Christians would rather submit to the theory that they have killed their god and now believe in the supremacy and power of Satan. Try to imagine the type of mentality that is build upon such a belief: Masochism, suicide, Satanism…they confuse the matter still more by introducing the fable of the Risen Christ, but have never produced a solitary witness to testify that he or she actually saw Christ ascending…One certain factor in the propagation of this nonsense is that the priests want poor, simple folk to believe in Jesus as the Son of God, whereas Jesus himself never proclaimed to be such… The vicars of Christ, after having completely confused western man in the matter of belief, use this method to manipulate the people in such a way that the priests are accepted as gods who have the power to send people to Heaven, Hell, or atone their sins… By having put their god on a crucifix as opposed to executing Satan, they not only have blasphemed against the Wisdom and Judgment of God Almighty, but reduced Him to a role of subservience to Satan. Similarly, by attributing the words of the Bible to God, they also attribute all their fallacies, inaccuracies, irrationalities, lies, and contradictions to Him!”
— “Psycho-Religious Causes of Some Incurable Diseases,”
“The agents of Shaytan (Satan) are many. Many efforts are put forth to mislead masses into darkness via Satanic philosophies, ideologies, and schisms brought forth to divide and keep humanity divided, resulting in immorality, bigotry, break-down of family structure, and numerous unspeakable crimes against humanity. A perfect example of this point would be homosexuality.”
“America is no longer the home of the free and the land of the brave. The constitution and the Bill of rights are just pieces of paper that don’t mean a damn thing anymore, unless you are white and an anti Muslim hatemonger of course. The Ku Klux Klan no longer need to wear pointed hoods and remain underground, as they are sitting in the oval office and walking the halls of congress.”
“All Muslim nations are in danger because the enemy will not rest until it has subjugated (or eliminated) ISLAM from the map, while it defends the terrorism of Israel….We must put a stop to the violence and aggression against our peoples… by force if necessary. We must work with each other and collectively refuse to accept the injustice and aggression of the West and [its] protégé Israel. If we take these steps be assured that ALLAH…will do the rest.”
As noted in Militant Islam Monitor, JF’s objective, indeed “their foremost duty” as revealed in a 1991 investigation of its Open Quranic University, is “to wage Jihad against the oppressors of Muslims.” This is an organization of Islamist extremists more virulent in many ways than the Muslim Brotherhood fronts in this country and abroad.
JF found fertile ground in US prisons and attracted Muslim converts. Estimates of ul-Fuqra members in the US range as high as 6,000.
The group’s founder, Sheik Gilani, refers to himself as the ‘sixth Sultan ul-Fuqra’ and fashions himself as a direct descendent of Muhammad.
Headquarters for JF in the US is located in upstate Hancock, New York. Other JF locations include: Hagerstown, Maryland; Falls Church, Virginia; York, South Carolina; Dover, Tennessee; Buena Vista, Colorado; Talihina, Oklahoma; Tulare County, and Squaw Valley , California. Large complexes have been established in Red House, Virginia and Commerce, Georgia near Macon. JF also has two basic training facilities in the Metro Toronto area in Canada.
The JF front group and tax exempt charity, MoA, maintain offices in Tallahassee, Florida; Binghamton, New York; Springfield, Massachusetts; Dover, Delaware; and Roanoke, Virginia.
The chronicle of JF’s activities in the US is mind boggling as laid out in a New Media Journal article by researcher, Dr. Paul Williams, entitled: “In the Belly of the Beast: Jamaat ul-Fuqra”:
Jamaat ul-Fuqra has close ties to al-Qaeda. In December 1993, Sheik Mubarak Ali Gilani, the founder of ul-Fuqra, was an honored guest at an international gathering of Islamic terrorists at the residence of Hassan al-Turabi in Khartoum. At the gathering, Sheik Gilani and Osama bin Laden were caught on film chanting, “Down, down with the USA!” “Down, down with the CIA,” and “Death to the Jews.” The film now remains in the “Alec File” – the CIA dossier on bin Laden.
Members of the group have been arrested for trafficking in firearms, including AK-47s.A recent report prepared by the Center for Policing Terrorism maintains that Jamaat ul-Fuqra “may be the best positioned group to launch an attack on the United States, or, more likely, help al-Qaeda to do so.”
Since the time of its establishment at a radical mosque in Brooklyn, New York, Jamaat ul-Fuqra has been responsible for more terror attacks on America soil (30 and counting) than all the other terrorist groups combined. It has spawned and sponsored assassinations, kidnappings, mass murder, grand theft and fraud.
Some noted associates of Jamaat ul-Fuqra include Richard Reid, the Shoe bomber and John Allen Muhammad, the Beltway sniper.
Members of the group, including Clement Rodney Hampton-El took part in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
JF’s pattern of violence stretches back to the 1980’s. Witness these accounts in both Canada and the US from the Militant Islam Monitor:
In the 1980s, they carried out various terrorist acts, including numerous fire-bombings across the United States. JF’s early targets in North America were ethnic Indians and targets linked to various Indian sects. In July 1983, Stephen Paul Paster, a front ranking JF member, was responsible for planting a pipe bomb at a Portland hotel owned by followers of the Bhagwan Rajneesh cult. After his arrest in Colorado, Paster served four years of a 20-year prison sentence for the bombing. He was suspected but not charged in two other bombings in Seattle in 1984 – the bombings of the Vedanta Society temple and the Integral Yoga Society building. Currently, Paster is reported to be based in Lahore, Pakistan, from where, intelligence sources say, he provides explosives training to ul-Fuqra cadres.
After the Portland bombing, two ul-Fuqra cadres allegedly killed Mozaffar Ahmad, a leader of the minority Ahmadiyyah sect, in Canton, Michigan. Both suspects reportedly perished in a fire they set at the Ahmadiyyah mosque in nearby Detroit. The JF is also reported to have been involved in the killing of three Indians on August 1, 1984 in a suburb of Tacoma, Washington. JF is suspected of involvement in a series of fire bombings of Hindu and Hare Krishna temples in Seattle, Denver, Philadelphia and Kansas City.
US officials in 1989, during a search of a storage locker in Colorado Springs, recovered a large cache of armaments and documents with links to the JF. Among the arms recovered were handguns, semi-automatic firearms, explosives, pipe bombs, bomb components and several bombs. Some of the seized documents described the activities and code of the “Muhammad Commandos of Sector 5,” who were reportedly involved in arms training and intelligence gathering. The documents, including maps and lists, contained details of potential JF targets and victims in Los Angeles, Arizona and Colorado. Targets included oil and gas installations and electrical facilities, US. Air Force Academy and other military sites, and people in 12 US states and Canada with Jewish or Hindu-sounding names. Various JF publications were seized during this search. Titles of some of the publications seized included “Guerrilla Warfare”, “Counter Guerrilla Operations”, “Understanding Amateur Radio”, “Fair Weather Flying,” and “Basic Blueprint Reading and Sketching.”
In 1991, JF’s plans to bomb an Indian cinema and a Hindu temple near Toronto were unsuccessful. Five JF cadre members were arrested at the Niagara Falls border crossing after US Customs agents searched their cars and found visual evidence and plans of the interiors of the targets including a description of time bombs. A Canadian jury convicted three American JF cadre members of conspiracy to commit mischief and endanger life. A fourth suspect, who had come to Canada from Pakistan shortly before the planned bombing, fled to Pakistan after his colleagues’ arrest, according to evidence presented at the trial.
A money laundering scheme run by the Red House Commune is reportedly similar to a Colorado operation that was shut down in 1993. Colorado law enforcement agencies convicted five JF cadre members for defrauding the Colorado government of approximately $350,000 through bogus workers’ compensation claims. Prosecuting agencies have indicated that the amount had been laundered through Professional Security International (PSI), a JF security firm, and MoA. A portion of the funds was tracked through PSI to JF couriers who traveled to Pakistan. The PSI reportedly enabled JF cadre members to obtain federal licenses to buy weapons. JF is also suspected of operating two more security firms located in New York.
The JF commune in Colorado is spread across 101 acres. A police raid recovered bombs, weapons and plans for terrorist attacks in 1993. Two other communes in New York and California have shooting ranges. The 1,800-acre settlement in the Sierra Mountains in California also reportedly has an airstrip.
More recently, JF was caught in a counterfeit clothing scheme uncovered by Federal authorities at the Red House, Virginia complex.
JF’s front group, MoA, was selling counterfeit goods in the millions to fund their programs. Three suspects were sentenced in a U.S. Eastern Virginia Federal District Court for terms ranging from 21 to 57 months.
Note these revelations in a Northeast Intelligence Network report on the Federal Court decision and sentencing of the JF terrorist financiers:
According to investigative reports, the counterfeit clothing ring led by Abbas Chouman, 43, of Astoria, NY generated over $7 million in revenue. Chouman was sentenced on Friday, October 12, 2007 to 57 months in federal prison for his role in the criminal copyright infringement scam. In September, Haqq, Pierre and Harmon were sentenced to 8, 24, and 27 month prison terms respectively for their roles in the operation; on August 2nd, Ishoc Uthman Ibn-Abdus Salaam, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after being found guilty by a federal jury in Richmond of attempted conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods. Additionally, Terri Singleton, 34, of Beckley, West Virginia, one of Roundtree’s three wives, previously plead guilty to conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods with Roundtree. Singleton received two years probation in a separate federal court penalty hearing.
As part of the investigation conducted by this agency, it was determined that three of the above named defendants, Ismail Haqq, 33, Cherubin Pierre, 32, and Ronald Roundtree, 51 have ties to the MoA and JF encampments located within the United States and Canada.
The JF Mosque in Brooklyn, a literal ‘beehive’ of Islamist radicals, may have spawned several of the Fort Dix Six plot perpetrators. Three of the Fort Dix Six acknowledged attending services at the JF Mosque in Brooklyn. These Jihadis were caught by a sharp-eyed Circuit City clerk who contacted the FBI. The suspects have been incarcerated since June, 2007 have been denied bail and are awaiting federal trial in New Jersey.
The case of the Folsom, California prison Jihadis has all the hallmarks of a JF terror cell.
On December 14, 2007, a Los Angeles Federal District Court convicted members of a gang of jail house Muslim converts. They plead guilty to conspiracy to attack Los Angeles area synagogues, military installations and armed robbery charges in connection with a string of gas station holdups.
Here’s what the Associated Press had to say about the convictions:
Kevin James, 31 and Levar Haley Washington 28 plead guilty in a Los Angeles Federal District Court to launching Jihad attacks on gas stations and plotting to attack synagogues in the Los Angeles area. Federal District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney ordered sentencing for both in March and April, 2008. James could get up to 20 years for conspiracy, while Washington could “get 20 years in prison on the conspiracy charge and five years to life for the firearms offense”. Both James and Washington were jail house converts to Islam. Two others were convicted, Gregory Vernon Patterson and Hammad Riaz Samana. Patterson, Washington and James are American prison converts to Islam, while Samana is a Pakistani national and is presently under psychiatric care at a federal prison mental hospital facility. The Torrance, California police uncovered the plots when they investigated a string of 10 gas station heists in July 2005. They discovered details of a planned attack on Los Angeles synagogues planned for the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur that fall.
According to this AP report “Patterson and Samana are charged with conspiracy to levy war against the U.S. government through terrorism, conspiracy to possess and discharge firearms in a violent crime, conspiracy to kill members of the U.S. government uniformed services and conspiracy to kill foreign officials. Patterson is also charged with a robbery count and using a firearm in a violent crime”.
The four suspects were part of a radical Muslim group Jamiyyat ul-Islam (JIS) founded by James while an inmate at the California State Prison in Sacramento.
JF remains a clear and present danger here in America. It has broad appeal among convicted felons in our nation’s prison system. Through networks of prison Imams and social service outreach JF engages those recently released, after serving sentences, for training in its network of paramilitary camps. Why our federal law enforcement agencies have not shut these JF facilities down and closed the MoA tax exempt charities, given this chronicle of evidence and convictions, raises a question of who is asleep at our counter terrorism agencies?
Filed under: Jews in America
You know it’s amazing how the word out now is that with Obama as president racism in America is over… well guess what!! Anti-semitism is not over!! We see it on a day to day basis and we see it especially in the American Justice system. To allow bail for murderers and others who commit violent crimes is just stunning. And then Sholom, who may have commited a crime , but not a violent crime and what happens? No bail! Wow.. and what happened to INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY??!!
In a legal argument called “astounding and very troublesome,” a federal prosecutor has argued that Israel’s Law of Return makes American Jews a flight risk and therefore ineligible for bail.
American Jews, beware. If you run afoul of the Justice Department, your chances for bail are slim to none. That’s the new legal concept created by the office of U.S. Attorney Matt Dummermuth in northern Iowa. The policy singles out Jews as a special category to be denied bail due to Israel’s “Law of Return.”
The Israeli law provides citizenship to any Jew immigrating to the country. It’s much like the asylum clause in U.S. immigration law, designed to offer refuge to Jews fleeing oppressive regimes. It’s never been used to give haven to American criminals. The United States and Israel have an active extradition treaty. Routinely, accused criminals are sent from one country to another.
We have yet to see whether this policy of singling out Jews will apply only in this part of Iowa or whether it will spread across the country. Dummermuth constructed this legal theory to prevent bail for Sholom Rubashkin, who is accused of nonviolent crimes related to the meat plant in Postville. The U.S. Attorney argued in front of Federal Magistrate Jon Stuart Scoles that the Law of Return could provide a safe haven to Rubashkin.
French can run to France, Mexicans to Mexico. If you have a Russian heritage, there is little fear that you would be barred from returning to your ancestral homeland. Yet Jews in the eyes of the U.S. Attorney are a special category under the law when it comes to bail, posing a flight risk and meriting treatment different from all other citizens of the United States.
It wasn’t so long ago that the American legal system singled out Japanese Americans for special treatment under the law, when those American citizens were imprisoned during World War II based on their heritage. That episode is considered one the blackest moments of American jurisprudence.
The issues between the U.S. Attorney and Shalom Rubashkin have been brewing for a long time. If he wanted to run, he would have done it already. This is his second arrest and indictment. He already was wearing an ankle bracelet from the first arrest. Dummermuth knew where Rubashkin was and could have allowed him to surrender, as is common in such cases. Instead, Dummermuth chose shock and awe, rolling into Postville on Friday, ensuring Rubashkin would be held over the weekend and on the Jewish Sabbath.
The people of Postville know Rubashkin well. It’s clear to us he has no intention of evading prosecution. He wants his day in court so he can defend his reputation. He feels maligned, singled out for prosecution. What other case of illegal workers has prompted such aggressive prosecution?
That’s why more than 30 of us, including me, pledged our homes as bail. We’re willing to put our families’ security on the line for him.
Rubashkin and his wife surrendered their passports to the court some time ago. Still, the U.S. Attorney claims that Rubashkin is a flight risk. His evidence: He found a bag in Rubashkin’s bedroom with his kids’ passports and some cash. The Rubashkins have an autistic child who opens drawers and closets indiscriminately. They placed these documents in a secure place, away from his reach. Does Dummermuth think that Rubashkin could have traveled to Israel, which has the tightest airline security in the world, on the passport of a 10-year-old?
The fear of fleeing to Israel is a theory that’s not based on any legal precedent or evidence from the investigation. As a kid, I studied the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It promised equal protection under the law. How can we be sure of this in America today, and particularly in Iowa?
The report said applicants were asked whether they would fight with the
U.S. military against Israel in a “hypothetical conflict.” Those who did not
pledge to fight Israel were denied security clearance by the Appeals Board.
“The Appeal Board rejected the Administrative Judge’s assumption that
Israel did not pose a serious security risk because it was a country friendly
to the U.S.,” the report said. “It held that such a view ignores the historic
reality that relations between nations can shift, and that even friendly nations
can have profound disagreements with the United States over matters which
they view as important to their vital interests or national security.” (Issue Date: http://www.insightmag.com — June 27-July 4, 2006, Posted On: 6/26/2006)

Obama camp ‘prepared to talk to Hamas’
Incoming administration will abandon Bush’s isolation of Islamist group to initiate low-level diplomacy, say transition sources
The incoming Obama administration is prepared to abandon George Bush’s doctrine of isolating Hamas by establishing a channel to the Islamist organisation, sources close to the transition team say.
The move to open contacts with Hamas, which could be initiated through the US intelligence services, would represent a definitive break with the Bush presidency’s ostracising of the group. The state department has designated Hamas a terrorist organisation, and in 2006 Congress passed a law banning US financial aid to the group.
A potential contender for a foreign policy role in the Obama administration suggested that the president-elect would not be bound by the Bush doctrine of isolating Hamas.
“This is going to be an administration that is committed to negotiating with critical parties on critical issues,” the source said.
This could easily become a politically toxic scenario for Obama of seeming to give legitimacy to Hamas.
Obama has said repeatedly that restoring America’s image in the world would rank among the top priorities of his administration.
