Shomrei Emunim Rebbe: We're Without a Doubt Standing Before a World War
Kikar has an article which quotes the Morasha Magazine (Hebrew) where the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe was interviewed and had some interesting things to say:
- We're without a doubt standing before a world war - this is 100% definite.
- Malachi, the last of the prophets, prophecied that there will be an awesome war like one that had never existed before - before the coming of Mashiah.
- We don't know when this will occur - even a second before it does. It could be that an Arab will go insane and will fly his plane into the Vatican and destroy it, which will drag the world to Tohu Vavohu.
- The war could be a matter of seconds long, as nuclear blasts can do awesome damage
- The Abravanel wrote 600 years ago how the world will be destroyed in a matter of seconds while knowing nothing about nuclear bombs. The Abravanel also said that the war would be a religious one - 50 years ago, the nations didn't have this concept of fighting based on religion - neither the Christians nor the Muslims, but now, everyone is a "frummer".
- There won't be even 1 second of warning when this will occur. Therefore, we must prepare בכל נפשנו ומאדנו [which possibly means "with all our souls and money"].
- All Jews outside of Israel should come to live in Israel. Even those who cannot do so should purchase an apartment so they'll have a place to which to escape when the time comes.
- The closer the Palestinians declare their state, this is a sign that they will be pushed out. This is why Yishmael is turning over the world - because it still wants to stay in the land. Very soon, Hashem will remove this Ru'ah Tum'ah from the land, and all the impure chaff and straw which is delaying the Redemption will be as chaff before the wind and as the flame that setteth the mountains ablaze
- Already 120 years ago and especially in the past 16 years, our leaders wanted to give land away and the Arabs refuse to take it. Do you have an explanation? We see how Hashem is running the world. We have a Defense Minister who is much more successful than the one who calls himself the defense minister. He that sitteth in heaven laugheth, the Lord hath them in derision. HKB"H took the world by the hand and we need not worry.
- All the revolutions started in 5760 and only increased from there. We need nothing more than the Taliban capturing Pakistan's nuclear arsenal and then it will all be over. We're talking about brutal animals that can threaten the entire world. And it will happen. Then the following verse will be fulfilled: Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations.
- From the year 5760, the world was not quiet - tsunami, earthquakes, Japan. HKB"H is taking care of them and doesn't give them rest. We can feel that these things are a preparation for something big that is coming. The Hesed LeAvraham said that in the year 5760, the ocean will rise and flood the world. In addition, both the Christians and the Muslims say that the end is nigh because their Mazal sees and feels this. This in itself isn't one of the signs of Redemption, but one who contemplates the words of Haza"l and other holy books can see out in the open that our day is having a wonderful revelation.
- The revolutions aren't solely in the Arab world, but in the entire world. Even the economic downfall in the U.S. is something very important. The whole world doesn't think about this, but I think about their shameful behavior at all times, but especially during the Holocaust where they were partners in killing Jews...
- The beginning of Yishmael's downfall was in Bavel - today's Iraq. About 150,000 from Bavel already died. We have already been saying for over 2000 years, 'בת בבל השדודה אשרי שישלם לך את גמולך שגמלת לנו אשרי שיאחז וניפץ את עולליך על הסלע' and Baruch Hashem, we merited to see this now. Is this a coincidence? Are the eyes blind?
Update: Ladaat has an article too and YWN has its own translation into English, where you can see more details that I may have missed.
