WELCOME!

Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Hamas Leader Admits: "Palestinians" Are Just Arabs Who Want to Destroy Israel.


In the war between good and evil, the truth will emerge. This video is a foretaste of that. A Hamas minister blows his cover and reminds the Arabs that the "Palestinians" in Gaza are really Egyptians, Saudis, Yemenites, just like them! The only reason they are in Gaza is to destroy the Jewish people.

"Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian!" - Fathi Hammad, Hamas leader

"Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians, and the other half are Saudis!" - Fathi Hammad
"I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and it's tragic." - Newt Gingrich, Dec. 2011

"When Newt Gingrich said they are an "invented people," he was correct. They are not even a real nation in the ethnic sense of the word. Their nationalism exists purely to oppose Zionism and Israel." - Reader Comment

"Palestinian Arab nationalism does not reflect any inherent peoplehood but rather it is a political fiction created only in the twentieth century, and only to destroy Zionism." -ElderofZiyon.blogspot.com






Following are excerpts from an address by Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad, aired by Al-Hekma TV on March 23, 2012.

Fathi Hammad : Is Egypt incapable of supplying fuel for 1.5 to 2 million people in the Gaza Strip?
[...]
If you do not point your compass toward Palestine, Al-Aqsa, and Jerusalem, in order to uproot the Zionist enemy, the US will trample you underfoot. It will besiege you with its conspiracies and will finish you off. Therefore, you must hoist the banner of Jihad, the banner of "there is no god but Allah."
[...]
Brothers, there are 1.8 million of us in Gaza. In Egypt, there are about 90 million people. We equal merely two percent of the Egyptian population. [Supplying us with fuel] would not burden you at all.
[...]
At Al-Aqsa and on the land of Palestine, all the conspiracies, throughout history, have been shattered - the conspiracies of the Crusaders, and the conspiracies of the Tatars. At Al-Aqsa and on the land of Palestine, the Battle of Hattin was waged. The [West] does not want this noble history to repeat itself, because the Jews and their allies would be annihilated - the Zionists, the Americans, and the imperialists.

Thus, the conspiracy is very clear. Al-Aqsa and the land of Palestine represent the spearhead for Islam and for the Muslims. Therefore, when we seek the help of our Arab brothers, we are not seeking their help in order to eat, to live, to drink, to dress, or to live a life of luxury. No. When we seek their help, it is in order to continue to wage Jihad.
[...]
Allah be praised, we all have Arab roots, and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots - whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties. So where is your affection and mercy?
[...]
Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri ["Egyptian"]. Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian.Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims. We are a part of you.

Allah Akbar. All praise to Allah. Allah Akbar. How can you keep silent, oh Muslims, when the people of Gaza are dying? You watch from the sidelines without providing them with the simplest thing, which you give to the West for the most meager price.
[...]

Even Amid Tragedy, There is Still Good News Tonight.

As the nation reels from the tragedy of Newtown,  CT, its good to focus on increasing acts of goodness and kindness. It is foretold that in the final Redemption, good and evil are no longer mixed up together, but each separates out and is seen more clearly. In the following items, good can be clearly seen.
Both stories suggested by S.B. Botnick



So as I’m sitting in the drive through line at Chick-Fil-A, I realize that my debit card is in my boyfriend’s wallet. My boyfriend is nowhere near as I am in Allen today. I pull up to the window, embarrassed, and tell them I just realized I don’t have my card and I am so sorry. The girl said, “Oh its okay we got it for you.” I said, “No, no, its okay, its my fault, I forgot to get it back from him.”  She insists and says, “Well do you have gas and everything?” I then look down and realize my gas light is on. Great.
She gave me my order, told me not to worry about paying for it and try not to let it ruin my day. I get to work and take out my food. There is a brownie added to my order and a $5 bill. I cried. The random acts of kindness these days are few and far between. I am so thankful that people like that still exist. I will be going back and asking for her with a nice little gift. My morning started out rough, but that just made my whole day a good day. Pay it forward my friends. J

Feel good alert!
This may help to brighten up what has been an otherwise tragic weekend.
You see, a police officer in Texas pulled over 25-year-old Hayden Carlo who was driving with an expired registration.
The young man explained that the only reason he didn’t renew his registration was because he had to feed his kids.
The police officer proceeded to then give the man a ticket anyway – with a $100 bill inside.

Muslim Philosopher to Arabs: "Focus on the Messiah"

An Islamic scholar, based in Istanbul, is urging the Arab world to prepare for the Messiah.


"These rocket attacks...are totally stupid and pointless....There are the sons of Jacob there. Let them live in peace." - Adnan Oktar, on his satellite television show

Turkish Islamic Scholar: 'Rocket Attacks Stupid and Pointless'

Turkish Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar is urging Hamas and Islamic Jihad on his TV show to stop the rocket fire and focus on the Messiah.
By Chana Ya'ar, Israel National News
First Publish: 11/18/2012, 10:26 AM


Turkish Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar is urging Hamas and Islamic Jihad on his A9TV satellite television talk show to stop the rocket fire from Gaza and instead focus on calling for the Messiah.
Oktar, based in Istanbul, is known for hosting colleagues of various other faiths, including numerous rabbis from Israel, Europe and the United States. He is active in interfaith affairs and has studied Judaic and Christian texts in addition to those of his own Muslim faith, a point for which radical Islamists have often vilified him -- and sometimes even threatened him -- around the world.
The Islamic scholar said last week in response to an article about Israel's current Operation Pillar of Defense, detailing the IAF's attacks on Gaza to silence the rocket fire against southern Israeli communities, “What Israel must do is constantly ask Allah for Moshiach, for the coming of the King Messiah. What Palestine must do is constantly ask Allah and strive for the Mahdi and Islamic Unity.
“These rocket attacks and the like are totally stupid and pointless,” he said. “They do nothing for five months and then suddenly decide to attack Israel and fire off 300 rockets. Where? At whom? What is your target? The rockets fall on the homes of innocent Israeli civilians. Where does that get you?” he asked.
“They then retaliate and hundreds or thousands of people are martyred, homes are bulldozed and children are martyred or injured. I fail to understand why they carry out such plans and why they want it. Who sets these things in motion in Palestine? And who goes along and regards these things as logical? I want to know. Have you never heard of peace, my brother?
“There are the sons of Jacob there. Let them live in peace. And there are the sons of Ishmael. Leave them in peace, too. Sit down as brothers, break bread, talk... They can pray in the synagogues and you can pray in the mosques. But live in peace, my brothers. They insist on engaging in provocative actions. That is very, very wrong.”

Thousands Respond to Photo of NYC Policeman Helping Homeless Man

It takes courage to be kind. One man didn't ignore someone's pain and suffering. And now this photo has "gone viral." Thousands have seen it. This is the kind of good deed everyone wishes they could emulate,--and maybe many will! Each of us can be the one to set an example.

NYPD officer photographed giving boots to barefoot homeless man melts icy hearts online

By  | The Lookout – Thu, Nov 29, 2012



A photo of a New York City police officer kneeling down to give a barefoot homeless man in Times Square a pair of boots on a cold November night is melting even the iciest New Yorkers' hearts online.
On Nov. 14, NYPD officer Lawrence DePrimo, who was on counterterrorism duty in Times Square, saw the older homeless man without shoes sitting on 42nd Street. DePrimo, 25, left and then returned with a pair of $100 boots he bought at a nearby Skechers store.
"It was freezing out, and you could see the blisters on the man's feet," DePrimo, a three-year veteran of the department who lives with his parents on Long Island, told the New York Times. "I had two pairs of socks, and I was still cold."
The random act of kindness was captured by Jennifer Foster, a tourist from Florence, Ariz., who was visiting the city. Foster, communications director for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office in Arizona, emailed the photo to the NYPD with a note commending DePrimo.
"The officer said, 'I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let's put them on and take care of you,'" Foster wrote. "The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man.
"I have been in law enforcement for 17 years," she continued. "I was never so impressed in my life. ... It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost."
Foster's photo was posted on the NYPD's Facebook page on Tuesday, where it received more than 320,000 "likes," 77,000 "shares" and 20,000 comments—most of them praising DePrimo, who seems to have restored Facebook's faith in humanity.
"This is one hell of a police officer," Desiree Wright-Borden wrote.
"Wow," Jack Horton wrote. "It's nice to know there are still good people out there."
"Angels truly do walk on earth!!!" Charlene Hoffman-Pestell wrote.
Some commenters, though, were skeptical, saying the photo could have been staged.
"Clever stunt!" Louis Zehmke wrote. "The hobo is 'parked' at the entrance of a shoe shop."
But Foster claims DePrimo had no idea he was being photographed: "The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching."

Rock Star Opens Restaurant With No Prices,-- Pay What You Can

To accelerate the process of Redemption, the Rebbe asks every person to add in goodness and kindness. Since that request, made to a CNN reporter in 1991 (See YouTube), individuals and institutions spreading goodness and kindness abound. Just put "goodness and kindness" into Google and you will see for yourself. This is the latest example of good deeds to make national news.

Soul Kitchen, Jon Bon Jovi's Charity Restaurant, Opens In New Jersey

RED BANK, N.J. — In three decades as one of the world's biggest rock stars, Jon Bon Jovi has eaten in some of 

the world's best restaurants, savoring the best food the planet has to offer.

Yet there's no place he'd rather have dinner than The Soul Kitchen, a "pay-what-you-can" restaurant he and his wife Dorothea established in a former auto body shop near the Red Bank train station in central New Jersey.

The restaurant provides gourmet-quality meals to the hungry while enabling them to volunteer on community projects in return without the stigma of visiting a soup kitchen. Paying customers are encouraged to leave whatever they want in the envelopes on each table, where the menus never list a price.

The restaurant is the latest undertaking by the New Jersey rocker's Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, which has built 260 homes for low-income residents in recent years.

"With the economic downturn, one of the things I noticed was that disposable income was one of the first things that went," Bon Jovi told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday before the restaurant's grand opening ceremony. "Dining out, the family going out to a restaurant, mom not having to cook, dad not having to clean up – a lot of memories were made around restaurant tables.

"When I learned that one in six people in this country goes to bed hungry, I thought this was the next phase of the Foundation's work," he said.

It started several years ago when Dorothea Bongiovi (she uses the legal spelling of her husband's name) and Jon started helping out at a food pantry at nearby St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church. They later moved their focus to the Lunch Break program, which feeds 80 to 120 people a day, dubbing it "The Soul Kitchen."

They brought that name with them to a former auto body shop down the street from the Count Basie Theater, where Jon and his self-titled band have played many fundraising shows for local charities.

It took a year and $250,000, but the restaurant now rivals any of its competitors in trendy Red Bank, with entrees like cornmeal crusted catfish with red beans and rice, grilled chicken breast with homemade basil mayo and rice pilaf, and grilled salmon with soul seasonings, sweet potato mash and sauteed greens, many of which were grown in the herb and vegetable garden right outside the restaurant's doors.

Bon Jovi, who has a home in next-door Middletown, is adamant about one thing.

"This is not a soup kitchen," he emphasizes. "You can come here with the dignity of linens and silver, and you're served a healthy, nutritious meal. This is not burgers and fries.

"There's no prices on our menu, so if you want to come and you want to make a difference, leave a $20 in the envelope on the table. If you can't afford to eat, you can bus tables, you can wait tables, you can work in the kitchen as a dishwasher or sous chef," he said. "If you say to me, `I'm not a people person,' I say, `That's not a problem. We'll take you back to Lunch Break to volunteer with those people. If you don't want to volunteer with that, we'll take you to the FoodBank."

After volunteering at one of those places, a person will be given a certificate good for a meal at The Soul Kitchen.

"If you come in and say, `I'm hungry,' we'll feed you," Bon Jovi said. "But we're going to need you to do something. It's very important to what we're trying to achieve."

That includes making people feel part of a larger community that cares about them, while still expecting them to contribute to society at large.

"This is not an entitlement thing," Bon Jovi said. "This is about empowering people because you have to earn that gift certificate."

He and others at the restaurant want those who can afford to dine out to patronize the restaurant as well and pay what they consider market prices, or even a bit more than that, to help sustain The Soul Kitchen as a true community resource.

Bon Jovi said he is currently writing songs for his band's next album, due out in 2013, along with another typically massive Bon Jovi tour. He said many of the songs are inspired by the current economic downturn and the struggles of everyday people to make ends meet without losing hope.

In the meantime, he and his wife plan to stay active in the restaurant, where he estimates he has worked at least once a week in recent months. The Soul Kitchen is open for dinner Thursday through Saturday, and offers Sunday brunch.

How important is rolling up his sleeves and working in the restaurant to him?

"Last Friday, I was at the White House, serving on the Council for Community Solutions, got on a train, changed in the bathroom and got here in time to wash dishes Friday night," he said. "I'm the dishwasher, for real. I can't cook a lick."

Ugandan President Repents of Idolatry, Other National Sins

What many throughout the world are longing for, Uganda is announcing: a nation willing to abide by G-d's rules. Renouncing idolatry, in particular, is one of the 7 Noahide Laws, universal laws which G-d gave to every nation. The country also took on some of the other Noahide laws, including prohibition of immoral behavior, injustice and dishonesty. The Rebbe said the nations are refined and ready for the Redemption. It seems Uganda is!

WND EXCLUSIVE

UGANDAN PRESIDENT REPENTS OF PERSONAL, NATIONAL SINS

'We confess idolatry, witchcraft, political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue."



"We want Uganda to be known as a nation that fears God..."

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda
At the National Jubilee Prayers in Namboole, President Yoweri Museveni made history when he openly repented his sins and the sins of Uganda, a move that has excited many religious leaders.Moses Mulondo brings you the prayer verbatim

Father God in heaven, today we stand here as Ugandans, to thank you for Uganda. We are proud that we are Ugandans and Africans. We thank you for all your goodness to us. 

I stand here today to close the evil past and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness. 

We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation.

Christians dedicated Uganda to God during National Jubilee
prayers last week.
We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal. 

Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict. 

These sins and many others have characterised our past leadership, especially the last 50 years of our history. Lord forgive us and give us a new beginning. Give us a heart to love you, to fear you and to seek you. Take away from us all the above sins. 

We pray for national unity. Unite us as Ugandans and eliminate all forms of conflict, sectarianism and tribalism. Help us to see that we are all your children, children of the same Father. Help us to love and respect one another and to appreciate unity in diversity.

We pray for prosperity and transformation. Deliver us from ignorance, poverty and disease. As leaders, give us wisdom to help lead our people into political, social and economic transformation.

We want to dedicate this nation to you so that you will be our God and guide. We want Uganda to be known as a nation that fears God and as a nation whose foundations are firmly rooted in righteousness and justice to fulfil what the Bible says in Psalm 33:12: Blessed is the nation, whose God is the Lord. A people you have chosen as your own. 

I renounce all the evil foundations and covenants that were laid in idolatry and witchcraft. I renounce all the satanic influence on this nation. And I hereby covenant Uganda to you, to walk in your ways and experience all your blessings forever.

Religious Leaders React

The Church of Uganda Archbishop elect, Stanley Ntagali said the prayer was a step in the right direction. That it was appropriate for the head of state to repent of his sins and the sins of Ugandans. 

The leader of Pentecostal churches, Apostle Alex Mitala, said the prayer was the beginning of the healing of a nation. “All the nations we read about in the Bible were healed when their leaders repented and acknowledged God’s supremacy,” he said. Mitala urged Ugandans to turn away from their wicked ways. 

Pastor Dr. Martin Kalibbala of New Testament Covenant Church warned that the fruits of repentance are what matter. “If you repent of stealing, God expects you to immediately stop stealing. If the President’s repentance is genuine, it will be measured on God’s yardstick of bearing the fruits of repentance,” he said.

Pastor Dr. Martin Ssempa of Makerere Community Church said it was a good thing for the President to repent on his behalf and on behalf of the nation. He commended those who encouraged and helped the President prepare the prayer, adding that God will answer it. 

“We hope the President’s repentance will result into greater obedience to God by the executive, which he heads.

What the World Needs Now.... An amazing 9/11 story.

With the suffering from Hurricane Sandy in mind, we offer this inspiring story of people helping people.


An amazing, true story about a plane that was forced to land in Newfoundland on 9/11.
(With thanks to Aish HaTorah)
Written by a Delta flight attendant.


On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about five hours out of Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic. All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the cockpit, immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the crew had that "All Business" look on their faces. The captain handed me a printed message. It was from Delta's main office in Atlanta and simply read, "All airways over the Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at the nearest airport. Advise your destination.”
We knew it was a serious situation and we needed to find terra firma quickly.
No one said a word about what this could mean. We knew it was a serious situation and we needed to find terra firma quickly. The captain determined that the nearest airport was 400 miles behind us in Gander, Newfoundland. He requested approval for a route change from the Canadian traffic controller and approval was granted immediately – no questions asked. We found out later, of course, why there was no hesitation in approving our request.
While the flight crew prepared the airplane for landing, another message arrived from Atlanta telling us about some terrorist activity in the New York area. A few minutes later word came in about the hijackings.
We decided to lie to the passengers while we were still in the air. We told them the plane had a simple instrument problem and that we needed to land at the nearest airport in Gander, Newfoundland to have it checked out.
We promised to give more information after landing in Gander. There was much grumbling among the passengers, but that's nothing new! Forty minutes later, we landed in Gander. Local time at Gander was 12:30 p.m... that's 11 a.m. EST.
There were already about 20 other airplanes on the ground from all over the world that had taken this detour on their way to the U.S. After we parked on the ramp, the captain made the following announcement: "Ladies and gentlemen, you must be wondering if all these airplanes around us have the same instrument problem as we have. The reality is that we are here for another reason." Then he went on to explain the little bit we knew about the situation in the U.S. There were loud gasps and stares of disbelief. The captain informed passengers that Ground Control in Gander told us to stay put.
The Canadian Government was in charge of our situation and no one was allowed to get off the aircraft. No one on the ground was allowed to come near any of the air crafts. Only airport police would come around periodically, look us over and go on to the next airplane. In the next hour or so more planes landed and Gander ended up with 53 airplanes from all over the world, 27 of which were U.S. Commercial jets.
