Netanyahu's Messianic Fanaticism Precipitating False-Messiah Catastrophe

Pious, reverent "Bibi" taking orders from his Rebbe to speed the coming of "The Messiah:"



Netanyahu's messianism could launch attack on Iran

Relying on the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his teachings in a speech that was ostensibly in favor of a Palestinian state is like relying on a racist who fervently supports slavery in a speech that is ostensibly in favor of abolition, while also making abolition contingent upon conditions that will never be met.

Benjamin Netanyahu promised to tell the truth at the United Nations, and the truth was indeed revealed. The prime minister chose in this speech to quote reverently from his meetings with one person only: the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who viewed himself as the messiah.

Neither the source nor the inflammatory quotation was coincidental. Netanyahu was intimately acquainted with the Rabbi King Messiah, and also with the views he expressed from on high. The rebbe's followers stood behind Netanyahu's victorious campaign in the 1996 election, which following the incitement-filled demonstrations and Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, with the slogan "Netanyahu is good for the Jews." And on Sunday, the prime minister's entourage was sent to genuflect at the rebbe's court.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe was famous for his vehement opposition to even the tiniest withdrawal from any territory ever held by the Israel Defense Forces, even in the framework of full peace. He even opposed withdrawing from territory on the other side of the Suez Canal. In his view, not one inch of the Holy Land could be given to the Arabs. He based this opposition on both security concerns - that missiles would be deployed on any vacated territory - and religious-historical arguments. Netanyahu reiterated both claims in his speech to the United Nations.

The most prominent emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe - the great rabbi, as Netanyahu termed him at the United Nations - included Baruch Goldstein, perpetrator of the 1994 Hebron massacre, and Yitzhak Ginsburg, the rabbi of Yitzhar, he of the radical books "Baruch the Man" (which celebrates the massacre ) and "The King's Torah: The Laws of Killing Gentiles." Nor was this by chance. The Lubavitcher Rebbe inculcated his followers with the doctrine of "your people are the land's only nation": In the land of the messiah, there is no room for Arabs. Thus racism entered Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations - not "merely" against Islam, but also against Arabs: They, he said, are not like your neighbors in New York.

... [in his speech] Netanyahu relied upon the most radically messianic Jewish theologian of our generation ...

... [Netanyahu] is not interested in peace and compromise. [He] opposed peace with Egypt and the first Oslo accord. He led a campaign of incitement against the Oslo-2 agreement and then refused to implement it. Ariel Sharon, Rafael Eitan and then-Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Amnon Lipkin-Shahak were stunned by what they interpreted as his willingness to consider arming doomsday weapons in the face of Saddam Hussein's threats, and they worked to dissuade him. Netanyahu opposed the pullouts from Lebanon and Gaza, and not because he thought they should have been done by agreement. Nor did he respond to Mahmoud Abbas' moderation by taking advantage of the opportunity: Instead, he waged a campaign of incitement to preempt any chance of a deal and a withdrawal.

After all, he is the emissary of the Chabad messiah, the man who taught that this is the Jews' land exclusively. He returned from the United States with the feeling that the American government is a rag to wipe his feet on, with no power to stop his most extremist plans.

This is the background to what must become a global understanding of the issue that is now most important of all, which will also be the main topic of U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's visit. Netanyahu is completely serious in his desire, and also in his preparations to circumvent the warnings of the entire defense establishment in order to implement this desire, which many of those in his inner circle have defined as messianic: to attack Iran before winter. Before the clouds come, anyone who can stop him must do so.

“King Messiah” Schneerson is honored by Act of Congress. His Chabad-Lubavitch successors are powerful politically and met with every president from Carter to G.W. Bush.

Schneerson believed that Judaics killed by Hitler were reincarnated sinners and that heaven had sent Hitler to punish them for not following the Talmud!

Like all Lubavitchers, Schneerson believed in the “Tanya” document of Rabbi Zalman which teaches that all gentiles are nothing but trash.

Missing puzzle piece: Netanyahu, whether or not he wants to compromise and offer land for peace, cannot do so, if he values his life. Why? Because “religious-Zionist” Orthodox Judaics of the settler faction will swiftly kill him, as they killed Yitzhak Rabin. The Palestinian leadership is at long last aware of this rabbinic fact of Israeli politics, hence their attempt to go over Netanyahu’s head to the U.N.

By the way, Israeli forces have attacked UN observer posts and camps with great loss of life; twice at Qana (yes, the New Testament Cana). Arabs and Iranians did not have the wit to raise these facts at the recent UN conclave. These massacres by Israeli terrorists are not an issue for the UN itself or the US media.

I'm sure 'our elder brothers in faith' have very good reasons for what they do and we're just too stupid to comprehend them. They know what is best for the gentiles since they are God's 'chosen' and therefore superior in every way.
BTW -- anyone who hasn't yet purchased Mr. Hoffman's books, DVDs and CDs is missing out on extremely necessary information.
