Wikileaks After the Fact

What I wrote about Wikileaks was LeHat'chila - before the fact. You don't go around revealing secrets before the fact - unless you have a very good reason to do so. The reasons here don't seem justified enough to me.

That said, Bediavad, after the fact, we now are seeing information that justifies our thoughts that we knew all along. For example, that Ahmadinejad is like Hitler, ימח שמם וזכרם.  And that Iran sent Lebanon weapons via ambulances - of course against any moral standard.  Shirat Devorah guesses that this is a Geula sign. Arutz Sheva says that the leaked information is good for Israel.

Kikar Hashabat has an article that says that Rav Mordechai Eliyahu told Jonathan Pollard that he is the Tikkun for the sale of Yosef. Now, BeDavka in the middle of Parshat Miketz, the U.S., who has incarcerated Jonathan Pollard for 25 years for revealing secrets to a friendly nation, is getting what it deserves by having its state secrets revealed to any and every nation in the world, says the article.

I always thought that the torture and murder of the Ten Martyrs was the tikkun for the sale of Yosef. But, perhaps that was only part of the tikkun.

The Wikileaks are Israel's Hanuka present. They show the world that the Arab states are more afraid of Iran than Israel is. In addition, they show that Iran is now in possession of missile systems that can easily hit all of Europe. Also, they reveal that the Iranian Supreme Leader has terminal cancer since August 2009, threatening the rule of Ahmadinejad. And finally, they take Israeli settlement construction off the headlines and they put Obama in a tight spot. Happy Hanukah.

It's like the famous passuk in the Midrash Yalkhut Shimoni. Maybe Mashiach is on his way

Mimouni, maybe the tikun of the ten martyrs was only a tikun for the brothers who were responsible, but the tikun of pollard is davka for what Yosef himself was responsible for?
