Rav Shternbuch: Russian-Turkish Spat is Geula-Related

There is audio of Rav Moshe Shternbuch Shlit"a's message over at KikarKooker, Behadrei and Sod1820.

He mentioned the famous statement of the Gr"a of the Russian ships passing the Bosporus and capturing Istanbul will be a time for us to put on our Shabbat clothes.

He said that Edrogan is "a meshugener" for starting up with Russia and countries don't really want to fight each other, but HKB"H is causing them to do so as this is what will bring about the Geula as we know from Haza"l that a siman for the Geula is countries provoking each other.

He said that even though the Russians have not yet captured Istanbul, the mere fact that they are provoking each other is a sign that we are close to Mashiah.

Kooker adds the idea that Russia inherited the Kelipa of "Dubiel" from Persia and they are mostly Greek Orthodox Xtians - so they have Paras, Yavan, and Edom all mixed into one.

Another person who believes מה' יצא הדבר is none other than Putin himself.


Adding a personal insult to Erdogan and his government, Putin said "Only Allah, most likely, knows why they did this. And evidently Allah decided to punish the ruling clique in Turkey by depriving them of their intelligence and reason."

Everything is proving that Moshiach is on his way. Teshuvah, Tefilah and Tzdakah!

We can each help to bring redemption, whether we improve in our prayers, or middos, shmiras haloshon or other

Looking at the original Hebrew text, there's a chiddush in Rav Shternbuch's remarks. He defines the "Russians going thru the Bosporus/Dardanelles" (the sign the Gr"a gave over), is their "conquering" Istanbul.

And that we need to keep praying, since a good ending is not certain.

He quoted something written by Reb Ephraim from the Baalei Tosphos, that said that Moshiach will certainly come by the year 5700, but if not there will be terrible unprecedented happenings. That's the date of the holocaust.

Similarly he quotes a Zohar, saying in the end of days, the Yishmailim will cause terrible suffering to the Jews.

So we need to daven that the geula will come, because if this opportunity for good is not accomplished ...
