Kativa and Chatima tova Ya'ak, now that the molad passed at 5:08 pm Israel time, keep an eye on Yavan, for Yavan will lead the way in the collapse of Edom (Western Civilization). While Yavan has been a good guy this year when it stopped those flotilla ships, this judgment in 5772 is for all time. And Yavan's influence over the historic reference frame of 4115 years since the Mabul has not been very positive. Now that the molad has passed, we can mention the exact time that it was publicly because the Satan did not know the time when it occurred. Too bad Satan, you missed the boat, for the ship of Geulah has already sailed.

By the way, remember my article called 6 million for Makhzit HaShekel on my blog? From the statistic above, I can see that there are about 125,000 spots left here in EY before Rov HaYehudim will already be here. Any comers?

Thank you all for your wishes.

Shana Tova, Ketiva Vahatima Tova, and Tizku Leshanim Rabot to all.

Thank you, Devorah.

Cosmic, Amen.

R' Dov, I'll leave you with reading Rav Fish's latest, where he quotes from his book why Yavan is having all the economic trouble first.

I'd love to come.

HaSepharadi, i tu tambien! (My ladino is terrible, though.)

So Ya'ak to complete Rav Fish's wonderful thoughts, I leave you with the following: In the year that Mashiach ben Yosef shows up by zayin Adar, for Yehoshua was given his authority as the leader on zayin Adar, Klal Yisrael would be elevated from the 32nd camp in the desert which is where Mariam died exactly one year before entering Eretz Yisrael on the 10th of Nisan. The Klal arrived at Hor HaHar, the 33rd camp in the desert, around Lag B'Omer. They remained there until the end of Av to mourn the death of Aharon for 30 days. On Rosh Chodesh Elul they went to Tzalmona. As I have pointed out before in order for all the events that occurred at the 41st and last place in the desert Arvot Moav could occur, the Klal would have had to arrive there by the 15th of Kislev. This means that to be at each campsite for an approximately equal amount of time, the Bnei Yisrael had to be at each campsite from the 34th campsite until the 40th campsite about two weeks per campsite. That is from Rosh Chodesh Elul until the 15th of Kislev, 3 1/2 months that had to include all seven campsites! So where was the Klal on Rosh HaShana 2488, the year of entering Eretz Yisrael? They were at the 35th campsite in the desert. That campsite was Punon. It was at Punon that the Klal complained against the Mon for being unsubstantial, and poisonous snakes were sent to bite the Klal with venom. Then G-d told Moshe to erect a serpent on a pole so that all who looked upon it would live. And Moshe erected a copper snake on a pole. But wait, why copper? Moshe was not instructed by G-d in the material of the snake: The answer is because the essence of the primordial serpent was chochmah to reign supreme and that chochmah made us gods. Incidental to this is that the root of the word snake is copper itself. Alas, the yetzer hara, which is most tied to chochmah since the original sin was on Rosh HaShana, is Yavan. We see this most clearly in Sefer Daniel when the third kingdom in Nebuachadnezzar's dream, Yavan, is tied to copper. So if this the year when Mashiach ben Yosef arrives or is revealed if he is already here on Zayin Adar, it is a very strong possibility that Yavan will collapse on Rosh HaShana when the copper snake was erected in the midbar. I guess we will have to wait 72 hours until Motzei Shabbat to find out what happened. If it does not happen, I am sure that HaShem has his way to bring down Yavan before MBY shows up in 5772.

I guess I should post this on my blog too. The stock market is going nuts in an upward direction only because Yavan might not go bankrupt or because Yavan's default can be somehow controled. There is no other good news today. All the economic news is horrible. So for the stock market to react in such an irrational way, there has to be a deep seated reason associated with the yetzer hara that could cause all these smart investors to behave like idiots.
