Trump-Land USA and what that means for the Jews and Israel – Don’t worry Trump, Israel is behind you all the way. Israel will smash her enemies in the end. What role will Trump – the eagle play in all of this?
Please read this article through because it is going to blow your mind. It’s all here in the parsha of the week – Lech Lacha, which was read in synagogues all over the world the week of the elections, after the incredible and shocking Trump victory.
CURRENT EVENTS ALL CAN BE FOUND IN THE PARSHA, INCLUDING TRUMP.
It’s all in the parsha of the week – Lech Lecha; the role of Yishmael, who will behave like a wild beast – fighting with everyone, 16: 12; the “eagle” (HaAyit) that symbolizes America and that is the same gematria as Trump’s first name –”Donald”, who hovers over the nations and plays a special role before the final redemption, Rashi 15:11. It is a hillul Hashem when Jews are oppressed and there is a requirement to take risks to sanctify G-d’s name and rescue the Jews in danger, 14:14, Rashi and Midrash there.
Those who bless Israel will be blessed (and become great again) and those who curse Israel will be cursed, 12:3; the covenant between G-d and Abraham, and the reassurance that G-d will not betray Israel – even if they are not deserving, Sephorno on 15:8, as long as they send away the eagle or expel the nations, Rashi 15:12. When Abraham shows faith, he merits victory, 15:6 and Midrash on story of war with the 4 kings who ruled the world. Faith and being ready to stand alone against the world merits redemption. And fear of the gentiles brings Exile and servitude, Ramban on Abraham betraying lack of faith by leaving the land of Israel at the time of a famine, despite G-d’s promise to sustain him in the land. The Ramban also views, as a breach of faith on the part of Avraham, his placing his wife Sara at risk by lies to Pharoah about Sara being his sister.
A GREATER PERCENTAGE OF HISPANICS VOTED FOR TRUMP THAN JEWS –
Ironically, most American Jews have entered into a state of mourning after the sweeping and stunning electoral victory of President elect Donald Trump. However, the overwhelming majority of affiliated, Orthodox or Zionist Jews in America as well as most people of the Hebrew persuasion dwelling in Zion celebrated the “miraculous” Trump Victory. He who is smart with eyes on his head must see or at least attempt to see what will be born out of these historic elections.
WHAT LESSONS SHOULD WE EXTRACT FROM THESE ELECTIONS?
In this article I will try and offer some insight into the outcome of these elections and what it all means for Israel, America, the Arab world and the Jews who choose to remain in the exile. Additionally, I will try and summarize many of the morals and the lessons that can be extracted from these tumultuous elections and the derogatory, degrading and hostile campaigns of the key candidates.
THE ASSIMILATED AMERICAN JEW IS NOT ONLY BRAIN-DEAD BUT BETRAYS HIS FELLOW JEWS
Firstly, we can see the great divide between American Jewry and Israel. The average Jew in America is not affiliated with anything Jewish or with Israel. The fact that Hillary is so heavily supported and indebted to her anti-Israel patrons and to Arab states such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia and the fact that she is surrounded by key aids that are so connected to the most radical Islamic elements, in no way deterred the unaffiliated Jews from voting for Hillary.
These are Jews that care not about their millions of brothers and sisters in Israel and who have cut themselves off from anything Jewish. As the Talmud in Taanit says, those who forget their brothers in need – during rough times, will be cut off from joining their brothers – when they rejoice over the rebuilding of the Temple and Jerusalem. It is likely that this suits them just fine, as Temples and sacrifices would be anathema to the “progressive” liberal views they maintain. They have chosen their fate and voted for their destiny, following the lead of self-haters such as Soros and Sanders.
- BEWARE OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE LYNCH MOBS IT COULD GENERATE
Today, with the social media and independent funding one can overcome the impact of the media and reach the masses directly and instantly. Trump is living proof of the power of facebook, twitter and the social media network. Trends can change at the blink of an eye. That is good if you are a good guy fighting the darkness and lies of the media. Yet, that could be horrible when the social media can be used to organize and unite the masses to lynch Jews or torch the synagogue down the road. People could be swiftly, effectively incited to perform the worst unimaginable atrocities. When the lynch mobs are ignited, the flames can move with great ferocity and speed, in directions thought to be unfathomable only minutes ago.
- IF WIKILEAKS CAN REVEAL HILLARY’S CORRUPTION, IMAGINE WHAT G-D WILL REVEAL COME JUDGEMENT DAY?
G-d sees all. Man could learn a great lesson from the constant trickle of wikileak emails that were more than embarrassing for Hillary and the entire Clinton-Obama camp. This should remind us that all of our actions, deeds and words are recorded and will eventually be exposed for all to see.
If this is the case when it is being revealed by a human computer hacker, then one should be all the more humbled when contemplating G-d’s ability to view and expose all. This is just a small peak into the great day of judgement that awaits each and every one of us. And you can be certain that no emails, words or deeds are hidden before the eye of G-d and the heavenly court. This should trigger pangs of yearning for repentance and reconciliation between man and his fellow as well as with his maker.
- BIBI CAN LEARN MUCH FROM TRUMP ABOUT LEADERSHIP
Bibi and our leadership composed primarily of myopic wimps can learn so much from Trump. They are frightened of their own shadows. Trump said the most outrageous things, from the perspective of the media that mocked and delegitimized him. He did not waver or flinch. You can’t go half way and then backtrack. A leader is one who leads and sets the tone and not one who sways back and forth governed by popularity polls and the alleged norms of society. A leader creates the trends and is not molded by them. There is only one way to know how the public will react and that is by acting out your agenda. Suddenly everyone is running to kiss-up to Trump. The same Bush-clan and the same Republican establishment that shunned Trump yesterday, today jumps on the bandwagon. Everyone loves a winner. Great leaders don’t regurgitate the same old failed policies. They create breakthrough, new, innovative and creative policies that only yesterday were rejected by the same old boring and timid politically correct leadership. And the weak followers who call themselves leaders will join the winner only after he has won and shown them the light.
- NEVER GIVE UP HOPE
One must never give up or be frightened to stand alone. As our rabbis teach, even when the guillotine is staring down at your neck, one must never give up hope. G-d can deliver anyone at any time. Trump was more than the underdog who was written off long ago. He was abandoned even by his own party. The media demonized him. He stood unflappable with his truth, however unpopular it might appear to be. He had faith in the justice of his cause and in the Almighty and he was victorious. Good can defeat evil, even in this world if it is the right time and place, if so deemed by G-d.
- HILLARY TURNED OUT TO BE THE REAL CRY BABY
One who criticizes others and calls others names, is most likely revealing their own shortcomings. Hillary and Obama repeatedly warned that Trump would be a sore loser who would not accept the election results and who would create unrest in the streets if he loses. In the meantime, Hillary and her “progressive” cronies have been blaming everyone and their uncle for their defeat and have done little if anything to quell the riots spreading across America, under the banner, “not my president”, “F..k Trump” and other sweet epithets. Those who attacked Trump for his alleged womanizing in the past, now hold signs “rape Melania,” Trump’s wife.
- THE POLLS ARE PROVEN CLUELESS ONCE AGAIN
It seems that the polls can indeed be used to forecast results. Only one needs to use the exact opposite findings of the polls to know in which direction the wind is really blowing. The polls were off with “Brexit”. The polls were wrong in Israel, when it came to Bibi’s victory, in the past elections, and the polls again favored the liberal leftist “progressives” in the Trump-Hillary mudslinging race. They were flat wrong. They are either liars and frauds, believe their own nonsense, or people are simply frightened to reveal their true opinions lest they be mocked and marginalized by the media and the left. The bullies have succeeded in intimidating people from speaking their truth. It could be that for this reason people so identified with Trump who cut it all loose and spoke from his gut – the inner feelings that so many identify with, but were frightened to say aloud. There was clearly a backlash and he set the people free, in that sense.
- RABBI KAHANE WOULD HAVE BECOME PRIME MINISTER FOR THE SAME REASONS
It is likely that had Rabbi Meir Kahane (lehavdel) not been restricted, jailed, banned and killed that he would have ultimately become Prime Minister of Israel for all of the same reasons. However, in Israel if one says “throw out three million Muslims” he is jailed and tried under the penal code 144 for incitement to racism, and his party is also outlawed.
Trump was given the freedom to speak his piece and his peace. Albeit, the media attacked and maligned him, however, in the end, the people saw through the ultra-bias press and were permitted to make their own choice. And that they did.
This is probably the reason that Moshe Feiglin, Michael Ben Ari and all of the other decent right wing religious politicians in Israel just can’t take off and they never seem to fly too high in the polls. They lack that ability to connect to the masses. They lack that “in your face” base-talk. They fear to say the outrageous. They are always trying to look acceptable, intellectual and sweet. You won’t hear them say “free Yigal,” for example. Those two outrageous words would actually open the door to grassroots support and make them electable in the eyes and hearts of the “amcha”. But they would never say something like that, so beyond the pale. One need not support the assassination of Rabin to support the release, after more than two decades, of the alleged assassin. One can openly despise and condemn, in the harshest of terms, Yigal Amir’s deed, (if he is indeed the culprit), yet still understand the special situation during the peak of the treasonous Oslo-crimes perpetrated by Rabin and Peres. The people have not forgotten or forgiven Rabin or Peres for their role in causing the murder of hundreds of Jews by the Arab terrorists who received weapons, hope and a greenlight by Rabin. Many people still attribute to Rabin another assassination plot against Begin in the Altalena Affair.
- THE TRUMP VICTORY CAN TURN HALF THE COUNTRY INTO VICIOUS JEW HATERS OVERNIGHT
It is likely that the professional well-financed riots against Trump will persist and that they will twist and turn in the direction of targeting Jews. Jews are already being blamed for Trump. And his policies and statements which will likely be perceived as being pro-Jewish and pro-Israel will further fuel the flames of hatred against Jews on the streets of Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Baltimore and Boston. These virulent anti-Jewish/Israel sentiments are already brewing and prevalent in the Democratic Party as we saw in their convention, only a few months ago. The revolution against Trump on campuses throughout America will worsen and fuel the BDS and anti-Israel movement which already has a sound foundation in American halls of higher education.
Israel and Jews will become a party partisan issue. Trump = Israel. Anti-Trump = pro “Palestine” and anti-Israel. And anti-Israel means anti-Jewish, at the end of the day, no matter how you cut it. It makes perfect sense that Senator Sanders and Chuck Schumer would now be calling for Congressman Keith Ellison, a Black Muslim to lead the DNC.
- THE JEWS WILL BE THE SCAPEGOAT
Trump-Land USA and what that means for the Jews and Israel – Don’t worry Trump, Israel is behind you all the way. Israel smashes their enemies in the end. What role will Trump – the eagle play in all of this?
As we correctly predicted before the elections, regardless who wins, the results will be dangerous for the Jewish scapegoat, who will be blamed for pro-Israel Trump, for Arab terror due to Israel’s intransigence and who are the easy targets when the minorities and other malcontents riot in the slums of the inner cities that border with luxurious, comfortable Jewish suburbs, that fashion their ostentatious Jewish palaces.
- IS TRUMP ALREADY BENDING?
Trump appears to have softened his position on Hillary’s crimes and on Obama Care and there are signs that his plans to build the big Mexican Wall have also already been breached to some degree. He is also already talking about a deal between the Israelis and the “Palestinians” despite his campaign promises not to impose a “settlement” on the sides. So who knows what will be. Trump might turn out to be the ultimate politician who speaks right and acts left, even more so than Bibi. Who knows what is yet to come? His aspiration to forge good relations with Putin may find Trump cutting a deal with Putin and Assad that would inevitably undermine Israeli interests and freedom of movement over Lebanon and Syrian skies. Any attempt to cut Syria off from Hizbullah and Iran will not be likely to succeed long-term, in as much as Israel is concerned. As that bond that was forged in blood and the hatred of Israel, the common enemy is the Arab street. Trump’s reluctance to deploy U.S. troops, will likely lead to the partition of Iraq. You can’t control Iraq from remote control relying on the locals to carry out your dirty work. The Shiite majority there will naturally gravitate towards Iran.
- TRUMP IS IMPULSIVE AND UNPREDICTABLE
Let us not forget that Trump comes off like a megalomaniac governed by impulses who shoots from the hip. At least this is the impression one gets. G-d forbid, he should ever get angry at Bibi or Lapid or whoever. Who knows what he is capable of doing? At some point he may just say to Bibi, “You are a wimpy loser, if you are frightened to fight the war, go f…yourself….” There are very uncertain days ahead of us. One thing is certain, for the Jew in the Exile it is time to buy a one way ticket home to Israel. For Israel, I am not over concerned because the only place of refuge for the Jew will be in Zion, Yoel 3;4. There are two possibilities: Trump will either fulfil his pledges and show true love of Israel, and if that is so, he and America shall be blessed as we saw in last week’s parsha, Breishit 12;3, or he will turn into Israel’s worst enemy and nightmare. Should Trump turn on Israel, America will be cursed. Israel will do just fine with or without America, if in G-d we trust!
- TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT IF HE CONTINUES HIS STEADFAST SUPPORT OF ISRAEL At the end of the day, for the Jew as well as for the gentile there is an eternal, internal conflict; a side of light that has faith and does the right thing and a dark side that lacks faith and that pushes man to do the wrong thing. There are, however, special moments in a man’s life when he must take a stand. These are great moments when man can pass or fail his test; when he can grasp greatness or plummet into the waste baskets of history. Similarly this is true on a national level for a country and for the nations of the world. Moreover, there are certain periods in history where the fate of all mankind and the fate of Israel rest more delicately on the balance. We now live in such a critical crossroad in Jewish and world history. The non-affiliated Jew in America has cast his vote and made his choice and it was not for the candidate who openly voiced his love of Israel, and with that he has determined his fate.. Bibi lacked the courage, the decency and the reciprocity to support Trump before he was elected and when Trump could have used his support. Bibi now runs circles around Trump. It is simple, if Trump truly continues to stick his neck out for Jews and Israel he may just make America great again and he may just bring great blessing to his country. That is, if the nation allows him to govern without assassinating him or shutting down the country. As for Israel, have no fear, we will survive in the land and we will prosper with security immediately if we do the right thing and show our faith in G-d.
- ‘DONALD’ SPELLS ‘HaAYIT’ IN GEMATRIA – SYMBOLIZING THE EAGLE
This is all summed up interestingly in last week’s parsha as well. How timely that we read Parshat Lech Lecha in synagogues throughout the world, specifically on the week that Trump was elected. At the beginning of the parsha we read in Breishit, chapter 12, verse 3, that those who bless Abraham will be blessed and the one who curses Abrham shall be cursed.
After the parsha describes the great victory that Abraham had over the 4 empires that had captured his nephew Lot, the Torah speaks of how Abrham will be victorious due to his faith in G-d, (Chapter 15, verse 6). None the less, Abraham requests a reassurance from G-d that his children should also be redeemed, despite their possible betrayal of the Torah and G-d’s ways. In verse 8 there, Abraham requests a sign to show that G-d will not forsake his descendants and that they shall indeed inherit the land and the chosen destiny. (The commentaries explain that this is not a breach of Abraham’s faith, but rather Abraham seeing that his descendants would sin, wanted a reassurance that G-d would not forsake them, and that they, in the end, will enjoy a final redemption).
‘Donald’ in gematria – spells ‘HaAyit’ – the eagle, which is the symbol of America and it is also mentioned in the parsha in a particularly messianic context.
In the following verses, G-d shows Avram that he has nothing to fear and that his children will be redeemed: G-d establishes His convenant with Abraham and to his descendants by having Abraham perform a ritual “brit ben Habetraim” – the convenant in-between the dissected parts of the animals he sacrificed (which symbolize the nations of the world). While the bird (dove) which symbolizes Israel (shir HaShiri 2:14), remains whole to symbolize the indestructability of the Jewish people. The dissected animals, on the other hand symbolize the nations of the world, who will find their demise (perhaps in the war of Gog U’Magog). And then the eagle descends upon the animals (the nations of the world). However, “they” are dispersed by Abraham, (some say “they” refers to the animals being chased away and others say it refers to the eagle being chased away).
Rashi says that King David son of Yishai wishes to come to (exact vengeance against the nations) but he is not permitted until Moshiach comes. When the eagle hovering over is sent away or according to others – when the nations are sent away, then Moshiach can come and then the final redemption shall be ushered in.
This messianic prophecy is unclear. Who is driven away? Is it the eagle or is it the nations? If it is the eagle, then why does the Torah use plural to explain a single eagle? On the other hand, if it is the nations, then why must they be driven away? The plural language would implicate that it is the nations, driven away by Abraham that will precede and trigger the coming of Moshiach. The prophecy in Isaiah about revenge against the nations preceding the redemption is commonly accepted, Isaiah 63.Just as the Egyptians received the 10 plagues before the Jewish exodus from Egypt.
I think that this can be explained in two different ways, just as the redemption can come in two different ways. From the perspective of America, it is their choice whether or not to support Israel and to be blessed. They can play some role of fighting the enemies of Israel like a vulture or eagle over the nations, or they can serve as a protector of the nations, supporting Israel only to be able to control the intensity of Israel’s response in its defense against the nations.
However, in the end Israel will need to garner the faith and the courage to drive out her enemies and to show acts of faith to merit her redemption and the coming of moshiach. On the other hand, the eagle can come to Jerusalem in the final war of Gog to fight the Moslems, but their swords can also be turned against Israel and then both Ishmael and Esav – the xtians find their deaths in the final war before moshiach comes, as most commentaries explain the prophecy in Zecharya 14 and in Yehezkel 38. Israel needing to stand alone, is a common understanding, so that the great victories will be attributed to the hand of G-d and not to the aid we received from allies. This sending away of the eagle could mean taking action alone, without the eagle playing a direct active role. Thus, the eagle is spared, but before moshiach comes Israel will need to take proactive action on its own. This could explain the differences in opinion about the role of the HaAyit-eagle = Trump in Gematria, in the final showdown. Will he be playing some sort of role in an alliance with Israel, or will he, too, ultimately join with the rest of the world when they converge on Jerusalem?
For Israel to have allies is not a sin. For Israel to place their faith in these allies or to accept bribes and aid making them reliant on these allies is a problem, particularly when appeasing these allies contradicts the way of the Torah (see Lech Lecha chapter 14, verse 13, Avraham’s allies, yet later in verses 22-24 Abraham refuses to take anything from the King of Sedom.) It seems that, regardless, America potentially has a unique and special role. They can break from Europe; the rest of the Esav-world and from the Arabs and the Islamic world, as Trump is indicating that he is prepared to do – If we take his campaign rhetoric seriously. The dissected animals – symbolizes perhaps that break and the divide between the nations; two sides – one pinned against the other – Islam vs Esav – the Muslims against the Western world, who are at war with each other. In the end they unite against Jerusalem. However, Trump-land USA will need to decide if he will join with the rest of the world and fall or if he will side with Israel and survive that final war. The eagle is being sent away from that final battle, and from falling in that battle. Trump will have to decide his own fate and whether or not he will restore greatness to America. Trumps pledge to expel three million immigrants and his disregard of national and world opinion and of the liberal media should be an eye-opener for Israel. This should be an example to pave the way for Israel to learn from this. If that is the only thing that comes of these elections, then that is enough. We should be so lucky for Israel to follow this bold lead and to expel her hostile enemies and welcome moshiach now. In the end, Israel will win regardless. Trumps embrace of Israel can only help America. Don’t worry Trump, Israel is behind you all of the way, that is if you do the right thing. Make no mistake, Israel does not need America. The redemption will come one way or another regardless of what America does. Trumps support of Israel will determine only the fate of America. Will the eagle stand ready to take on the rest of the world together with Israel or will the eagle side with the rest of the western world and Islam against Jerusalem?
According to most interpretations of the Rashi that speaks of the eagle and the final redemption, Moshiach will come when Israel drives away the eagle.
However, some commentaries do say that Israel drives away the (animals) nations and not the eagle (Ibn Ezra). Thus, there is a possibility to explain that the eagle is not united with the rest of the nations, and while perhaps Israel needs to fight that final war against the nations alone, the eagle can choose to do the right thing and separate itself from sharing the same fate of the enemies of Israel. Some say that Israel throws away the animals so that the eagle will leave and set its sights on the nations – its prey. This would imply that the eagle can also play an active role in the war against the nations, if they so choose to do so.
However, according to the more likely interpretation of this Rashi, Israel will send away the eagle, and this can mean that Trump will turn sour and that when Israel has the courage to say “no” to his future dictates then this will be a sign of the redemption to follow. What can be learned from all of this, regardless, Israel must not rely on Trump or the nations and Israel must do what it needs to do and show full faith in G-d. The true barometer to measure Israel’s faith and the absolute test, is how willing Israel is to do the type of mitzvoth that might anger the world, such as expelling her enemies, allowing unlimited “settlement” in all of the land and building the Temple.
For the Jew in the Exile, the test is about whether he will side with Israel and make Aliya to Israel, in spite of all of the obstacles and threats.
Indeed, I would implore all of my Jewish friends to wait before breaking out the champagne to celebrate Trump’s victory as a victory for the Jews, despite his campaign promises. It can go either way in as much as Trump staying loyal to his pro-Israel promises. Regardless, Jews in America are in great risk.
Big things are coming down and the time is ripe for all Jews around the world to come home to Israel. Only in Zion shall the Jews find refuge, as the Prophet Yoel warns, (Yoel 3;5). Time to come home!
Psikta Rabati 36: Rabbi Yitzhak says: In the year that Moshiach will be revealed, all of the rulers of the world will be provoking each other (see recent latest intensification of the conflict with Russia and America, and all of the other conflicts and wars around the globe and on Israel’s northern border in Syria…)…and the King of Persia (Iran) provokes an Arab King (The Saudis and others including Iraq) and the Arab King (Saudis and other Arab regimes) seeks help from Edom (represented by Europe or US – the leader of the pack). Then Persia destroys the world. The rest of the world shudders in fear and asks from where will we come and where shall we go. G-d answers them: My Children, don’t be afraid! Whatever I have done I have only done for your sake. Why are you afraid? The time of your redemption has come! And this last redemption will not be like the redemption from Egypt when you had sorrow and further exiles afterwards. In this last redemption there will never again be sorrow and bondage under the nations again.
