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.

Netanyahu at UN Alludes to the Redemption

"In our time Biblical prophecies are being realized." - Netanyahu, UN speech, October 1, 2013

In his appearance at the UN on October 1, 2013, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu evoked images of the Redemption at the beginning and conclusion of his speech. His intent was to focus on the threat from Iran. However he began by an historical reference to the Persian King Cyrus who permitted the Jewish people to return to their homeland 2500 years ago and rebuild the Holy Temple. Recently the Arab scholars at the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem have complained that this is exactly the plan in place now: that with the ingathering of the exiles from Jewish populations across the globe, the Third and final Temple cannot be far behind. Right now Israel has the largest Jewish population in the world: 8 million. And wherever the largest Jewish population is, it is said there is a preponderance of holiness.

Netanyahu concluded his speech saying, "In our time Biblical prophecies are being realized."
Then he painted a picture of Redemption in the words of the prophet Amos, as cited below.

From the Beginning of Netanyahu's speech
"Some 2,500 years ago the great Persian king Cyrus ended the Babylonian exile of the Jewish people. He issued a famous edict in which he proclaimed the right of the Jews to return to the land of Israel and rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem."

At the Conclusion of Netanyahu's Speech
"In our time the Biblical prophecies are being realized. As the prophet Amos said, they shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink their wine. They shall till gardens and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again."
[Repeates paragraph in Hebrew.]
"Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again."
