The Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria issued an unusual statement Thursday in which it said that the results of the incident in which Israel intercepted a flotilla trying to break the naval blockade of Gaza "place us at the beginning of the Gog and Magog process where the world is against us, but which ends with the third and final redemption."The prophecy is that the Messiah will arrive when all hands are turned against Israel. Last night President Barack Hussein Obama decided to throw Israel under the bus. Muslim nations are circling the waters like sharks in anticipation of the feeding frenzy to come as nation after nation shows their true nature and joins in the Pogrom that is happening. All but one. The Czech Republic.
The statement explained that while secular Zionism always wants Israel to be beloved by other nations, “the legitimacy of our people is not derived from the nations of the world and their poisonous traditions, rather from the Torah of Israel which teaches us that [Israel] 'is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations'" (Numbers 23:9).
The council blessed the soldiers of the IDF and called for the formation of an emergency unity government that will bring about the salvation promised by G-d.
The Council was formed by Rabbi Zalman Melamed of Beit El and includes many leading rabbis of the religious-nationalist stream, who are the spiritual leaders of communities in Judea and Samaria.
'Gog and Magog' is a reference is to chapters 38 and 39 in the book of Ezekiel, a part of which is read on the intermediate Sabbath of Sukkot (Tabernacles). These chapters describe a vision of a war that will precede the final redemption of Israel and the world. The prophecy involves a prince called Gog of Magog, leader of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, who leads a coalition that includes Persia (Iran), Cush (Ethiopia), Phut, Gomer, and Beit Togarmah against Israel. There are various opinions regarding the modern identity of some of these nations.
As a sampling of passages from Ezekiel 39 shows, the prophecy predicts that the coalition will be defeated by Israel, at a time following Israel's gathering from its exile:
And thou, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say: Thus saith the Lord G-D: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; and I will turn thee about and lead thee on, and will cause thee to come up from the uttermost parts of the north; and I will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel; and I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the peoples that are with thee; I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort and to the beasts of the field, to be devoured.
Therefore thus saith the Lord G-D: Now will I bring back the captivity of Jacob, and have compassion upon the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name. And they shall bear their shame, and all their breach of faith which they have committed against Me, when they shall dwell safely in their land, and none shall make them afraid; when I have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations.
And they shall know that I am the LORD their G-d, in that I caused them to go into captivity among the nations, and have gathered them unto their own land; and I will leave none of them any more there; neither will I hide My face any more from them; for I have poured out My spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord G-D.'
The dramatic flotilla incident and the international reactions to it have sparked intense emotion, and unusual unity, among the Jewish public in Israel.
Is the world waking up? Following U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and others, the President of the Czech Senate, Dr. Přemysl Sobotka, says the Turkish flotilla was a planned provocation designed to entrap Israel.The Czech Republic stood by Israel in 1948, selling guns to the new nation. Today they are alone speaking out the truth in the face of lies and hatred.
Dr. Sobotka told Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin on Wednesday, “As a doctor, I certainly regret any loss of life, but there is no doubt that this was a planned provocation designed to drag Israel into a trap.”
“Many in the European community feel as I do,” he added, “but they are afraid to speak out publicly.”
Sobotka met with Rivlin in the Knesset, and told him, “I support the position that views Hamas as a terrorist organization… It is too bad that European countries present an unbalanced position on this matter. Unfortunately, the positions of the international community are not always to my taste, particularly in Europe.”
Rivlin took the opportunity to explain once again that “despite the international criticism, the naval blockade on Gaza is in accordance with international law. Israel left Gaza, but it became a terrorist entity supported by Iran. This week, instead of peace activists we found terror activists who endangered our soldiers and left them with no choice. At least 100 out of the 120 Knesset Members support the IDF action.”
Rivlin thanked his guest and the Czech nation for “your warmth towards Israel over the course of decades and the Czech leadership’s support at every opportunity.” During Operation Cast Lead 18 months ago, the Czech foreign minister issued this statement: "I consider it unacceptable that villages in which civilians live have been shelled. Therefore, Israel has an inalienable right to defend itself against such attacks. The shelling from the Hamas side makes it impossible to consider this organization as a partner for negotiations and to lead any political dialogue with it."
Czechoslovakian military support for Israel when it was fighting for its life in 1948, in defiance of a UN embargo, is considered to have played an important role in Israel’s survival. Though the country’s Communist government severed relations with Israel between 1967 and 1990, the relationship has developed and flourished anew since then.
“Hamas displays total mockery of all international norms and law,” MK Rivlin said, “not only with its indiscriminate shooting at Israeli citizens over the course of eight years, but also in its holding of Gilad Shalit for four years without allowing anyone to visit him. This would be inconceivable in any proper society.”
