Two Steps Toward Nuclear War & One Toward Jewish Supremacy

While Americans entertain themselves with the ridiculousness of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes and the unfeigned hatred of Ilan Omar toward America and Israel; and while American leaders continue to conspire for ways to make the murder of live-born babies legal so the euthanasia murder of adults and the coming mass murder of special classes of people – such as Christians and Jews – can be justified, the US and Russia are approaching a nuclear cliff.

I know the news I report every week is negative. The old axiom is that the media’s news is usually bad, anyway. Al the more because at the end of days the enemy will try to wear out the patience of the saints (Daniel 7:25).

My job is to sit on the wall and war you when I see danger (Ezekiel 33). If you’re not listening, there is nothing I can do. The best that I can think of myself is that I’ve done my job. So, I will continue to do my job even as the warning blasts come more frequently and most people shut their ears.

What does it mean to ‘listen’, to ‘shema’? It means to do something. It means to prepare for the war that is coming, to remove yourself from the danger.

To that end comes this week’s report.


Thank you for listening!

President Vladimir Putin has suspended Russia’s participation in a key nuclear arms treaty, following Washington’s decision to withdraw from it.

Putin’s decree means Russia is suspending its obligations under the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty and will continue to do so “until the US ends its violations of the treaty or until it terminates”. 

The US has accused Russia of developing and deploying a cruise missile that violates provisions of the pact that ban production, testing and deployment of land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500km (310 to 3,410 miles). 

The US gave notice of its intention to withdraw from the INF a month ago, setting the stage for it to terminate in six months unless Moscow returns to compliance. Russia has denied any breaches and accused the US of violating the pact.

The move also reflected Donald Trump’s administration’s view that the treaty was an obstacle to efforts needed to counter intermediate-range missiles deployed by China, which is not part of the treaty. 

Russia has charged that the US has breached the pact by deploying missile defense facilities in eastern Europe that could fire cruise missiles instead of interceptors – a claim rejected by Washington. 

The collapse of the INF treaty has stoked fears of a replay of a cold war-era Europe missile crisis, when the US and the Soviet Union both deployed intermediate-range missiles on the continent during the 1980s. 

Such weapons take a shorter time to reach their targets compared with intercontinental ballistic missiles and their deployment was seen as particularly destabilising, leaving no time for decision-makers, and raising the likelihood of a global nuclear conflict over a false launch warning. 

Putin has warned the US against deploying new missiles in Europe, saying that Russia would retaliate by fielding new fast weapons that will take just as little time to reach their targets.

So what did President Trump do to show good faith and that he is not provoking Russia the way Israel is provoking Iran? He deployed the US THAAD missile system to Israel this week.

The US military has delivered THAAD missile defense systems to Israel for the very first time. The deployment comes as a part of a joint exercise and is aimed to show the US’ “continued commitment” to Israel’s “regional security.”

Securing Israel will always be the excuse for Gog – the United States of America – to operate a military in Israel. Gog is after the spoil. Russia and Iran are, as well.

What is the spoil? It is no coincidence that the word ‘oil’ is 60% of the word ‘spoil’.

For Russia and Iran, the spoil is Israel’s gas (Tamar, Leviathan offshore gas fields) and oil (recently discovered in the Golan Heights). Jerusalem is also a spoil. The Edomite Persians want to control Jerusalem because it is Jacob’s territory, but they don’t really want to rule from Jerusalem. One of the ancient capitals of Persia was Babylon. It is likely, but not certain that Iran would rule the world from somewhere in the vicinity of the ancient city of Babylon.  

The spoil is this for the US, as well. The US is on the hook to provide fossil fuels to Europe to keep Europeans close. Otherwise, Europe’s other option is to develop economic ties to Russia. In fact, Russia and Germany are currently working on the details of gas and oil sales.

According to the Washington PostAmerican ire over German reliance on Russian natural gas imports shows no signs of letting up, and over the weekend, Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador in Berlin, issued a warning to German companies involved in a controversial new pipeline to Russia. Writing to several corporations over the weekend, he said, “We emphasize that companies involved in Russian energy exports are taking part in something that could prompt a significant risk of sanctions,” according to the German weekly Bild am Sonntag and other German news outlets.

In a statement, embassy spokesman Joseph Giordono-Schultz said on Monday, “The U.S. Government has been clear that we agree with the European Parliament, the U.S. House and nearly 20 European countries in opposition to the Russian Nord Stream 2 project.” He added that “companies are free to work on [Nord Stream 2], and we are free to make clear that working on it could disqualify them from also working on U.S. projects.” the spokesman said. 

Nord Stream 2 [project]…could double the amount of natural gas it exports to Germany. For the European Union, natural gas is critical: It generates more than one-fourth of the European Union’s electricity needs, which are only growing. 

A third of the European Union’s gas comes from Russia. 

Moscow is hoping to boost its market share further. To ensure it does, the Russian natural gas company Gazprom is building two new pipelines into Europe. One of them, called Turkish Stream, will serve southern European markets via Turkey and Greece. But the far more controversial project is Nord Stream 2, which ends in northern Germany and is slated to supply major Western European nations, among others.  

Here is one reason for the connection between Ukraine and Syria: Fossil Fuels! There are other reasons, as well, such as simply world dominance and one that I will repeat to you again. It will be something I have told you before.

Britain, Norway and the Netherlands are Western and Northern Europe’s biggest gas producers, primarily relying on natural gas fields in the North Sea. But over the next few decades, Europe’s own resources — which accounted for more than a third of its supplies in 2016 — are expected to gradually disappear.

So, the US does not want Germany and Russia getting into any fuel agreements. But what are we really talking about here?

This is a continuation of Obama’s economic war against Russia in Ukraine. Russia is trying to increase control of Europe’s oil and gas to drive a wedge between Europe and Russia.

I have said for many years that the war between the US and Russia has two fronts: the Middle East and Ukraine. The Middle East is of utmost importance, but the US must keep its European allies from engaging with Russia in purchasing oil and gas and defying US sanctions against Russia.

He who controls the fossil fuels, control the earth! That is what precipitated Obama’s creation of the Arab Spring and is the reason the war in Syria continues now. For the moment, Jerusalem is an excuse and a way to provoke the West’s enemies.

But there is another reason that Israel is a spoil for Gog: Gog is an errant Israelite, one who grievously disobeyed YHVH and who must be punished (see my teaching Gog-Magog: The Birthright Wars, 1 & 2). YHVH will punish both Houses – the House of Judah (the Jews) and the House of Israel (the West) – at the same time. Their punishment will be an atonement. In fact, the situation between the United States and Russia, Israel and Iran is spoken of by the prophet, Isaiah.


Isaiah 27:1 In that day [the LORD’s Day, the Millennium – remember the Great Tribulation happens at the beginning of this period, not before it, because all days begin in darkness, even the LORD’s Day] YHVH with His great and fierce and strong sword shall punish the sea-monster, the darting serpent, the sea-monster, that twisting serpent [the Beast of Revelation, even though Isaiah did not know about the Book of Revelation]; and He shall kill the monster in the sea [YHVH starts this chapter with a reassurance of what will come in the end AFTER the following explanation].

Isaiah 27:2 In that day [the LORD’s Day, the Millennium] sing to her, a delightful vineyard. [Who is ‘her’, the delightful vineyard? ‘Her’ is the ‘land of Judah (Isaiah 26:1 In that day this song shall be sung in the land of Judah… The land of Judah today is the modern political, UN-created State of Israel. The rest of the verse explains the song: We have a strong city; He sets up salvation as our walls and banks. Isaiah 26:2 Open the gates, and the righteous nation shall enter in, keeping faithfulness.]

Isaiah 27:3 I YHVH keep it [What does YHVH keep? The Land of Judah, which He calls His vine – the modern political, UN-created State of Israel.]; I will water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day. [YHVH is the keeper of the vine.]

Isaiah 27:4 Fury is not in Me; who would set the briers and thorns against Me in battle? I would step through it; I would burn it at once [This is YHVH’s pledge to never allow His Land to be taken by any enemy of the modern political, UN-created State of Israel which will become the Land ruled over by Yeshua at the end of the Great Tribulation. To those who say YHVH never wanted this current, modern political UN-created State of Israel to exist, YHVH says otherwise for here He prophesies over it].

Isaiah 27:5 Or let them take hold of My strength, that he [Judah] may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me.

Isaiah 27:6 He [Judah] shall cause those who come from Jacob [all 12 tribes] to take root; Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit. [Right now, it appears that Judah is not causing the WHOLE House of Jacob to return. They are prejudiced in favor of only Judah, but this will change. However, we will see that it will take some turmoil to bring this about.]

Isaiah 27:7 Has He [YHVH] stricken him [Judah], as He [YHVH] struck those [enemies] who struck Him [Judah]? Is He slain according to the slaughter of the slain by Him? [Has YHVH punished His people as severely as He has those enemies whom He employed to chastise Israel? “Is Israel slain according to the slaughter of the enemy slain? No! After all is said and done, YHVH will restore Israel’s 12 tribal nation and utterly destroy Israel’s enemies]

Isaiah 27:8 By driving her away [YHVH sent His wife who He sent into exile], you will contend with her [His wife]; by sending her away, You punished her. [This has already happened twice before with the Babylonian and Roman dispersions.] He takes away by His rough wind, in the day of the east wind.

Isaiah 27:9 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; [The exiles of both Houses has the effect of purging their iniquities.] and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he makes all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in pieces, the Asherahs and sun-pillars shall not stand up.

Isaiah 27:10 Yet the fortified city [Jerusalem] shall be wasted, and the dwelling forsaken and left like a wilderness; there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down and eat up its branches.

Isaiah 27:11 When its branches are dried up, they shall be broken off; the women come and set them on fire; for it is a people of no understanding. Therefore His Maker will not have mercy on them, and He who formed them will not favor them.

Isaiah 27:12 And it shall be, in that day [this prophecy is specific to the end of days even though it had a near and partial fulfillment] YHVH shall thresh from the stream of the river Euphrates to the torrent of Egypt [specifically the end of man’s reign on earth at the time of the beginning of YHVH’s eternal reign when He widens the borders of Israel to accommodate all the people who will come. The borders have to be enlarged because modern Israel cannot hold us all], and you shall be gathered one by one, O sons of Israel [the WHOLE House of Israel, all 12 tribes].

Isaiah 27:13 And it shall be, in that day the great ram’s horn shall be blown [the Heavenly shofar], and those perishing in the land of Assyria [whose captivity was never declared over which is why Yeshua has to “set the captives free”] shall come, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt shall come and shall worship YHVH in the holy mountain at Jerusalem [our first duty is to worship YHVH at His holy mountain.]

Gog will be an both an instrument of “measured” punishment to the House of Judah, as it says in verse 7, and will also receive YHVH’s final punishment due the House of Israel. YHVH is in charge now of world events. The Jews, even though YHVH won’t completely destroy them, still have punishment coming for their disobedience, including their failure to restore all 12 tribes according to the Jubilee year they proclaimed last year (see the Jerusalem Report – 07/06/2018 – The Jubilee & Trump’s Peace Process and Jerusalem Report – 07/13/2018 – Jubilee – The Reality) and the fact that they intend to recognize a Yeshua-denying messiah in an attempt to establish Judah’s earthly rule without Yeshua.

Thus, Gog is increasing his military capability of assisting or guarding Israel just as YHVH said he should. Look at this tweet below.

Israel Defense Forces tweet says THAAD is part of US efforts to implement its operational concept & mission to assist in Israel’s aerial defense. said the THAADs – Terminal High Altitude Area Defense systems – will be stationed in the country’s south, alongside some 200 US military personnel.

According to the Jerusalem Post, troops belonging to the US European Command (EUCOM) have deployed the THAAD anti-ballistic missile defense system in Israel as part of a joint drill between the two allies, the IDF announced on Monday. 

The purpose of the tactical deployment of the …THAAD system in Israel is to “practice rapid deployment across the globe of complex systems, and to enhance cooperation with the IAF’s Air Defense Systems” the statement said, adding that “the IDF is working in cooperation with US forces in order to enhance coordination between the two militaries and to strengthen the ability to defend Israeli airspace.”

During the deployment, our service members will work in various locations throughout Israel and will practice operational procedures for augmenting Israel’s existing air and missile defense architecture,” the US European Command said in a statement, adding that the exercise serves as a “demonstration of the United States’ continued commitment to Israel’s regional security.”

Israel’s security is Gog’s excuse for coming after the oil and gas, and for Reuben’s descendants from the family of Gog to take back the firstborn position of Jacob’s family.

“During the deployment, our service members will work in various locations throughout Israel and will practice operational procedures for augmenting Israel’s existing air and missile defense architecture,” the US European Command said in a statement, adding that the exercise serves as a “demonstration of the United States’ continued commitment to Israel’s regional security.

Footage from the scene shows THAAD launchers and other vehicles unloaded from military transport planes at the Nevatim Air Base, as well as US military personnel disembarking. THAAD is a system, built specifically to intercept short-, medium-, and intermediate-range ballistic missiles during their terminal phase – re-entry or descent – with a direct hit approach. 

The deployment was lauded by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said that the systems will bolster Tel Aviv’s capability to fend off threats from all over the Middle East region. 

“The American THAAD system is considered among the most advanced systems in the world, and together with our defense systems, we are stronger in dealing with threats, close or distant, emanating from all areas of the Middle East,” he said.

According to AP, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus described the deployment as a defensive drill unrelated to current developments in the region.

The fact is that the US and Russia are in proxy wars with each other, and sometimes even in direct conflict, on two fronts – Syria and Ukraine.

According to The Drive: So, while the U.S. military and the IDF insist that the THAAD deployment is unrelated to any specific event, it’s hard not to see it as a pointed signal to Iran.

The Daniel 11:40 calls it ‘provoking’.

In January 2019, Iranian authorities tried and failed to launch a satellite into orbit in a test that the United States and Israel both criticized as a cover for ballistic missile development efforts. The next month, The New York Times reported, citing anonymous sources, that the U.S. government had rebooted a clandestine effort to sabotage Iranian missile programs. 

Since pulling out of the multi-national deal over Iran’s controversial nuclear program in 2018, President Donald Trump and his administration have taken an increasingly hard line against Iran in general, putting a raft of economic sanctions back into place. One of the Trump administration’s main complaints about the Iran Deal was also that it did nothing to tackle concerns about non-nuclear issues, including Iranian ballistic missiles

Another reason the US rolled out its THAAD missile system has to do with plain and simple response to Russia’s nuclear threats. The THAAD rollout is likely – and mostly – a ‘you showed us yours, not we’re going to show you ours’ kind of statement.

Defense News posted this video on Youtube lauding the THAAD missile system rollout in Israel. Watch this.

Russia is no longer constrained by anything from attacking the United States. Iran now has more reason to attack Israel because the US is putting itself and Israel in a “bully” posture. And now…

Russia’s New Missiles Are Aimed at the U.S.!

I don’t understand why this journalist chose to put this situation in a lesser light given that the article is clear about the possible outcome.

International audiences perked up their ears last month when a Sunday evening news show singled out a handful of locations in the United States that could be targets for annihilation by Russia’s new hypersonic weapons. 

“For now, we’re not threatening anyone,” said the TV host Dmitry Kiselyov, who some label Russia’s chief propagandist. However, Russia worries that the United States, after having withdrawn from an important arms control treaty that regulated missile deployment, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, might again station intermediate-range missiles in Europe. “But if such a deployment takes place, our response will be instant,” Kiselyov said. 

The segment came days after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annual address to the nation on Feb. 20, in which he warned that Russia would be forced to deploy hypersonic weapons that can travel over five times the speed of sound. Given their speed and agility, the United States is currently unable to defend against them.

Does that seem more like bark than bite to you?

On Feb. 26, Gen. John Hyten, the commander of U.S. Strategic Command, which oversees the U.S. nuclear missile arsenal, sounded the alarm, telling Congress that Russia’s coveted hypersonic weapons aren’t covered by any nuclear arms treaty. 

Nuclear winter is awful to contemplate, but experts caution against buying too much into Russia’s hype. For one thing, two of the locations Russia singled out as targets for these missiles—Fort Ritchie in Maryland and Fort McClellan in California—have been closed for about 20 years. And while hypersonic weapons sound like a breakthrough, the reality is more complex. 

“Fundamentally, I don’t think they change much in terms of strategic balance and military capability,” said Pavel Podvig, a nuclear weapons expert and senior research fellow at the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research. 

While designed to fly at Mach 5 or higher, hypersonic missiles are worrisome not so much for their speed as for their moves. Hypersonic weapons currently in development are not necessarily faster than ballistic missiles that already exist, said Ian Williams, the deputy director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. 

“It’s how they fly which is more the concern,” he said. Unlike conventional ballistic missiles, hypersonics have a much greater ability to maneuver as they hurtle toward their target, which could help them foil current missile defenses and slam shut an already very tight response window. 

“Their speed, accuracy, maneuverability, and unusual altitude can decrease warning and decision time, and increase the ability to strike nuclear-related targets with conventional weapons,” said Kingston Reif, the director for disarmament and threat reduction policy at the Arms Control Association. 

There are two basic types: a hypersonic cruise missile powered by a high-speed engine and a hypersonic glide vehicle, which is launched high by a rocket before uncoupling and sailing down toward its target. Russia is developing two types of missiles and one glider, all capable of deploying both conventional and nuclear warheads. Putin said last year the glider is already in production, and Williams, citing the fact that it has been given a NATO designation, suggested that Russia’s Zircon missile may already be deployed. 

Some say the focus on a new delivery vehicle is misplaced. 

“I don’t really care if I get nuked by a subsonic or a hypersonic nuclear missile,” said James Acton, the co-director of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “It’s more the being nuked that counts.” Deterrence, he said, was for now essentially the only U.S. defense against nuclear attack. 

The missiles’ potential use in conventional warfare has some U.S. analysts more alarmed, because they could deliver a lightning strike. “These kinds of newer capabilities at least open the prospect of a surprise first strike that would be very debilitating to U.S. forward forces,” Williams said.

But because the new weapons can carry both nuclear and conventional arms, using them conventionally  to target the United States, as Putin suggested, is immensely risky. If Russia launched an armed, hypersonic glider, and U.S. decision-makers were in the dark over the glider’s flight path and capabilities, it would be risking a retaliatory nuclear strike, said Michael Kofman, a research scientist with the CNA think tank. 

“Nobody in their right mind really takes that risk,” Kofman said. 

In part, the missiles serve to shore up things at home as much as cow rivals abroad. After years of Western sanctions and a gloomy economic outlook, new weapons are a soapbox for Putin to stand on. 

“They don’t really have a lot of other good news stories to talk about in the last two years,” Kofman said. 

I differ in this opinion. Russia’s greatest achievement in the last two years is that Russian troops now control the Israel and Jordan borders because of President Donald Trump’s ineptness.

Prognosticators use this as proof that Russia is Gog. The only thing Russia’s presence there is proof of is that Russia will make it possible for Iran, the King of the North, to attack Israel. Russia won’t stop that; Russia will assist that while simultaneously pulling the plug on the United States of Israel and her allies. 

Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, has said arms control is “in crisis” and he is “scared” Washington has begun thinking about the possibility of winning a nuclear war. 

In a rare public appearance since he took up the post in 2017, Mr Antonov outlined Russian concerns over several US withdrawals from arms treaties, and called for greater recognition of the risks of arms proliferation. 

Speaking at the Stimson Centre in Washington DC on Monday, Mr Antonov’s opening remarks took into account “the bad shape of Russian-American relations”, underlined by the fact his address came on the same day Vladimir Putin followed the US by suspending participation in the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty. 

“The situation with strategic stability as well as with arms control is very bad. We are in crisis,” Mr Antonov said. 

“Since the Second World War, we have been living until today without any war, whether you like it or not, only because of MAD – mutually assured destruction. It was the basis for peace between the US and Russia. It was clear that if you attacked the Soviet Union or Russian Federation, you will get an answer. With such an understanding, nobody tried to be a winner. 

“Today I am scared that some politicians and generals in Washington and maybe in other capitals, they have started thinking about the possibility of being a winner in nuclear war.” 

He added: “I would like to use this opportunity to send a message that it is impossible to win a nuclear war.” 

The collapse of the 1987 INF treaty has stoked fears of a Cold War-style European missile crisis. 

Russia has claimed the US has breached the treaty by deploying missile defence facilities in eastern Europe that could fire cruise missiles instead of interceptors. This claim has been rejected by Washington. 

“This is a very burning issue,” Mr Antonov said. “We can return to the situation before 1987 before we signed the treaty … We will be forced to deploy our missiles and here you will see the whole territory of European countries will be covered.” 

He also pointed out the US had pulled out of other treaties designed to limit use of certain weapons. 

“I would like to remind you that in 2002 [under George W Bush] the US decided to withdraw from ABM [the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty]. It was one of the crucial treaties between the US and the Soviet Union,” he said. 

He also called on the Trump administration to reconsider its stance on the Iran nuclear deal, saying: “I was very upset when the US decided to withdraw from JCPOA [the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action].” 

He said Russia “understands the US concerns regarding human rights, regarding malign activities of Iran in the Middle East, the ballistic missile programmes of Iran, plus the nuclear programme”. 

But he added: “The nuclear programme was discussed for many years and this [JCPOA] was a very difficult, very sensitive compromise between six countries. 

“It seems to me we have to do our best to keep this deal alive. It would be wise if the US could revisit its decision.” 

But Mr Antonov also applauded the Trump administration’s efforts to pursue North Korean nuclear weapons.

He said: “Nuclear disarmament is not an easy project. It seems to me it is impossible to achieve a tangible result within one month or a year. 

“You may know from history how many years we spent to arm … We had to spend more time and more money to dismantle an excessive quantity of our missiles and warheads. I understand why it will be difficult for the US to get a significant result. A positive result is not only in the interest of the US, it is in the interest of the entire world, including of course to the Russian Federation. That’s why we are welcoming all positive efforts by this administration. 

“Maybe Washington wanted to get more. We also want to see peace and prosperity on the Korean peninsula, but it’s not so easy … We would like to see North Korea as a non-nuclear state.”

The United States is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. She can only be ascertained through various descriptions such as Jeremiah 50 and 51 and Ezekiel 38 and 39 which describe how she is destroyed at the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

Listen to this passage from Isaiah 28:1-4:

Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower which is on the head of the fat valleys of those who are overcome with wine!

Isaiah 28:2 Behold, the Lord is a mighty and strong one, like a hailstorm, a destroying storm; like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, He casts down to the earth with the hand.

Isaiah 28:3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trampled under foot;

Isaiah 28:4 and the glorious beauty, on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the first-ripe fruit before the summer; which the beholder of it swallows up while it is yet in his hand.

The reason the US is not mentioned as nation in the end of days is quite simply because she won’t be there.

Now let’s talk about Israeli elections. A friend sent me this article about the direction the House of Judah is taking. I had several articles put together for this report but decided to just present this one because it explains what is happening so well. I bring this to you because you know about the Jewish supremacy doctrine being pursued by the Chabad Cabal. You know that Presidents Trump and Putin are connected to the Chabad Cabal and their supremacy doctrine. You know the Chabad Cabal wants to present the Jewish messiah to the world for the purpose of establishing the modern political UN-created State of Israel as the ruler of the world. You know they want to categorize and enforce all people of the earth as Jews or lesser Jews: Those within Judaism proper and those under the Jewish Noahide laws.

I also want to present this speculation to you about the reason for the uptick of war between Russia and the US because I believe it has something to do with the Chabad Cabal. What if the coming war is actually a competition between the two fractured halves of the old New World Order?

There are now two new New World Orders – the West and the East. Each is associated with a world superpower. The West is where the House of Israel is hidden among the Gentiles. The East is where the Persians are hidden among the Gentiles. Each side has a stake in the game, a spoil – the oil and gas, and each side wants to rule from Jerusalem for many reasons that I have elucidated over the previous years and months. I believe the Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are now in their own supremacy battle and it is one that was precipitated by the Chabad Cabal and is being spurred by the Chabad Cabal.

With that said, here is the article from Times of Israel titled The desecration of Israel.

In boosting Otzma Yehudit, Netanyahu has validated Kahanism, an apocalyptic racist theology that sanctifies hatred and vengeance.

In traditional Jewish consciousness there is no greater sin than Hillul Hashem, the desecration of God’s Name. The irony of Hillul Hashem is that it is a sin reserved for ostensibly religious Jews: Only someone who behaves disgracefully while speaking in the name of God and Torah can be guilty of desecration. 

The embodiment of Hillul Hashem in Judaism today is the Kahane movement, whose latest political incarnation, Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power), has just been brought into the Israeli mainstream through an alliance with the religious Zionist Jewish Home party, with the active encouragement of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 

“Kahanism” – named for the late American-born rabbi, Meir Kahane – is the spirit behind numerous acts of Hillul Hashem, from desecrating mosques and churches to Baruch Goldstein’s 1995 massacre of 29 Palestinians in Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs. Yigal Amir, the murderer of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, was inspired by Goldstein and by the writings of Meir Kahane. Kahanism allegedly struck in 2015, when someone firebombed a home in the Palestinian village of Duma, killing three family members, including a baby – and then, when celebrants at the wedding of a far-right couple danced with a photograph of the baby and repeatedly stabbed the picture, confusing Judaism for a demonic cult. 

And yet Kahanism, focus of intense attention over the last four decades, is little understood. Kahanism isn’t merely a political movement, the most extreme expression on the right-wing Israeli spectrum. In its essence Kahanism isn’t an ideology but a theology, that sanctifies hatred and vengeance in an apocalyptic messianic vision [emphasis mine]. A theology of Hillul Hashem. 

For Kahanism the purpose of Jewish chosenness isn’t to serve humanity – “and through you will be blessed all the families of the earth” – but to rule over it. The messianic era isn’t Isaiah’s vision of a world united in prayer but Kahane’s vision of vengeance against the nations. Violence isn’t a necessity to be dealt out with the measured caution of the rabbis, but an ecstatic affirmation of God’s power and purpose. 

The bitter irony is that Kahanism imagines itself to be the theology of Kiddush Hashem – sanctification of God’s Name. According to Kahanism, the Jewish people sanctifies God’s Name by defeating Amalek – the archetypal enemy that is the embodiment of evil, and that takes different forms in each generation. The ultimate expression of Kiddush Hashem, of the Kahanist inversion of the sacred, was the Goldstein massacre – which not coincidentally happened on Purim, celebrating the victory over Haman, a literal descendant of the tribe of Amalek. 

The way to defeat Amalek, and thereby prepare the way for the coming of the messiah, is by showing, like Goldstein, a fearless contempt for the world, embracing our destiny of total isolation. We are forbidden to seek alliances: Only by freeing ourselves from the illusion of non-Jewish support will we merit redemption. The greatest Hillul Hashem is for Jews to seek friendship with “the goyim.” Kahanism despises classical Zionism, which aspired to do precisely that by restoring the Jews to the community of nations. 

The political agenda of Kahanism – the mass expulsion of Palestinians, the destruction of the Dome of the Rock – would ensure Israel’s total isolation, proving we fear no one but God. Political madness as Kiddush Hashem. 

Kahanism is the sanctification of our woundedness, the fantasies of vengeance of a powerless people wedded to the renewal of Jewish power. No one is more dangerous than armed fanatics who see themselves as victims. 

In its final descent, Kahanism became a theology of racism. The platform of Kach – political precursor of the Otzma Yehudit party – promoted a law outlawing sexual relations between Arabs and Jews. It was not a left-winger but a Likud Knesset member, Mickey Eitan, who compared Kach’s sex law to the Nazis’ racial Nuremberg Laws. 

In 1990, Kahane was assassinated by an Egyptian-born terrorist. Following the funeral, mourners in Jerusalem beat random Arabs on the streets. The funeral-pogrom was a fitting end to a life devoted to violence and hate. 

In an earlier incarnation, before he became the theologian of the Israeli far right, Meir Kahane had been my teenage hero. 

It was the late 1960s in Brooklyn, and I joined street patrols organized by Kahane’s Jewish Defense League (JDL), to protect vulnerable Jews in urban neighborhoods. Most of all I was drawn to Kahane because of his efforts to free the Jews of the Soviet Union. One night at a demonstration at the Soviet UN Mission, I saw him getting clubbed after charging into a line of police. On the spot I became his follower. Here, finally, was an American Jewish leader ready to sacrifice for his people. 

That is how Kahanism began: with a noble cause, with idealism and self-sacrifice, with a minority beginning to sense its power, with the thrill of youthful violence. American Jewry, the most timid of communities, had never seen anything like this outbreak of militancy for a Jewish cause. We were the generation born after the Holocaust and just beginning to confront its meaning; the generation born after the creation of Israel that had just experienced the vicarious victory of the Six-Day War. And we were American kids growing up in the era of SDS and the Black Panthers, of violent street theater. In those years Kahane didn’t speak of apocalypse and redemption but of Jewish pride and protection. More than anyone else, Kahane read our teenage souls, helped us synthesize Auschwitz and Jerusalem and Berkeley. 

In the JDL we harassed Soviet diplomats and disrupted performances of visiting Soviet artists and blocked traffic in the streets of Washington. Some JDLers placed bombs at Soviet offices. 

I had my doubts about Kahane. There was something in him that seemed unformed, childish. He didn’t just advocate but celebrate violence. I hated when he formed an alliance with an Italian-American front group for the Mafia, in exchange for legal support for his court cases. How could he sully our cause? I mistrusted his commitment to ahavat Yisrael, love for the people of Israel. No one I knew spoke more incessantly of love for his fellow Jews, and no one I knew hated as many Jews as he did, reviling his opponents as traitors. 

But I suppressed my doubts because he embodied the spirit of “never again,” because he’d figured out how to draw media attention for the neglected cause of Soviet Jewry, because he was our Black Panther, because he was funny and charming and knew how to flatter young people with attention, because he was “the Reb,” the rabbi, embodiment of the Jewish spirit of our time and place. 

Like most of his American followers, I broke with him when he moved to Israel in the early ‘70s and became the leader of Israel’s farthest right, exchanging a campaign to free Soviet Jews for a campaign to expel Palestinians. That was not what I’d signed up for; I left Kahane and never spoke with him again. 

In those years I would distinguish between the “good Kahane” of the JDL and and the “bad Kahane” of Kach. But the roots of Kahanism were there all along, in his moral expediency and love of violence. 

As I watched Kahanism take root in Israel, I felt one small comfort: At least this abomination was being confined to the fringes. When Kahane spoke from the Knesset podium, after being elected a member of parliament in 1984, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir led a walkout of the Likud faction. Baruch Goldstein was repudiated by almost the entire political and religious establishment; the settlers’ publication, Nekudah, called his atrocity a desecration of their cause. 

Kahane remained isolated within the settlement movement and, of course, within the wider religious Zionist community. Respectable, middle-class Orthodox Jews didn’t like him. The distaste was visceral, aesthetic: The rabbi with the American-accented Hebrew who acted as if Israelis were Brooklyn Jews in need of his vigilante protection, whose Torah commentaries were embarrassingly simplistic and who confused the optimistic messianism of Rav Kook for an alien apocalypticism, who called Arabs “dogs” and snarled when he spoke, whose followers were most emphatically not the boys you would want your daughter to marry: Kahane was not, as they say in the religious world, “one of us.” 

But now, thanks to the delegates of the Jewish Home party who voted to join with Otzma Yehudit and the rabbis who gave their hechsher, their seal of kosher approval, Kahane has posthumously become one of them. The party of the faithful has committed an historic act of Hillul Hashem. The good citizens of the Jewish Home have married off their daughters to thugs. 

As for Netanyahu – the shadchan, the matchmaker – he has written himself into the annals of our ancient kings whose moral corruption undermined the spiritual immune system of the nation. Netanyahu has committed the secular equivalent of Hillul Hashem: He has desecrated the name of Israel. We have at least this much to be grateful for to Netanyahu and to the leaders of the Jewish Home party: They have clarified the defining issue of this election, a referendum over whether the next government of Israel will be a government of Hillul Hashem.

In effect, the Israeli government took a more radical turn than even the Chabad Cabal when it embraced Kahane. The Chabad-ists must be thrilled!
