Arutz Sheva on Rav Kaduri & Mashiah

Arutz Sheva, reporting on Rav Kaduri's funeral (which had 300,000 people, they say):

Students of the righteous rabbi say that the blessing of the Ben Ish Chai (considered the leading rabbi of Sephardic Jewry, d. 1904) and that of the Lubavitcher Rebbe - both of whom blessed him that he might live to see the Final Redeemer - came true. The rabbi's closest followers say that Rabbi Kaduri told them he met the Messiah on Cheshvan 9, 5764 (Nov. 4, 2003). He reportedly said that the Messiah is not promoting himself, and that a study of his [Rabbi Kaduri's] words in recent months would provide hints of his identity."

He is not saying, 'I am the Mashiach, give me the leadership.' Rather the nation is pushing him to lead them, after they find [in my words] signs showing that he has the status of Mashiach." So said Rabbi Kaduri to one of his close relatives.

Rabbi Kaduri was also quoted of late as saying that the imminent arrival of the Mashiach will "save Jerusalem from Islam and Christianity that wish to take Jerusalem from the Jewish Nation - but they will not succeed, and they will fight each other."

This past Yom Kippur, shortly after Hurricane Katrina, Rabbi Kaduri said, "Jews must come to the land of Israel to receive our righteous Mashiach, who has begun his influence and will reveal himself in the future."

The JPost article on Rav Kaduri z"l mentions a "Beit Yisrael internet site" that is receiving articles from people relating to the 'miracles' that the Rav enabled these people to experience. Do you know the name of the site? I cannot find one that contains a mention of the Rav. Could you publish this site for us please?

All this story will be forgoten soon. So there is no need to keep it on with websites and forums.
Kaduri lived in the time that Messiah's revelation and presence happen, and that's enough.
If tese happen why dont we see Messiah? Because we are blind to the Light yet. Kaduri saw the Light spiritually, did sense it.
Rebbe did see early the Morning Light in the Horizon.
Kaduri just felt the sun's growing presence.And that was just enough.

Of course, this story is a bit stickly for the Lubavitch Meschiachists. That is, is the Rebbe mashiach, or is it the other person?
