Rav Yitzchak Brand: Don't Rely on Goyim - Attack Iran

According to Kikar, Rav Yitzhak Brand Shlit"a from Immanuel tells Prime Minister Netanyahu not to rely on any other nation to attack Iran - Israel has to do it alone.

His proof is from Divrei Hayamim II 16, where King Asa of Yehuda, who had King Ben Hadad of Aram fight against King Ba'sha of Yisrael, who was building a blockade against King Asa. In verse 7, King Asa is rebuked for not relying on Hashem and only relying on Aram for help, and he was punished for this, Rav Brand says.

According to Rav Brand, the relations between King Asa and King Ben Hadad were immeasurably greater than the relations between the US and Israel nowadays, especially with the current president, and still King Asa was punished for relying on Aram. All the more so today, he says.

I will just note that this was not the first time PM Netanyahu was compared to King Asa.

I have been following the redeemption off and on since 2006. While each year, more extreme weather has hit the world and America. It is the samething every year. This is the year of Geula. It was suppose to be 5772. Now that it is over, it will be 5773. Just tell people it is up to Hashem, period. More and more Israelis are moving to Philadelphia, PA. Ask any orthodox rabbi in America and they will tell you NOT to move to Israel. While I followed the autistics (see Bat Aliyah) they have stopped sending messages. Yes, America's economy is bad. Historically speaking that means bad news for Jews living in America. Nothing has happened on a large scale. Until Orthodox Union or some other large orthodox body says it is time to leave America, people will stay. Personally, I am confused. Move or stay. I sincerely doubt Israel will attack Iran. In any case I will continue to prepare to move slowly until the goyim start blaming the Jews for their economic trouble. So far the mainline news media has not done so.

Anonymous - there is only one good reason to make aliyah to Eretz Yisrael and that is to make Hashem happy.
