Destination Yisra’el – “The advent of troublesome times is now around the corner. Israel is the “Canary in the Coal Mine” and as the “Fire of War” lights up in Israel, so this “fire” will cascade around the world, toppling one country after another.
Yet, for those with “eyes that can see” and ears that can hear”, we are today witnessing the rumblings, the shakings, and the birth pangs of the long anticipated Guela (Redemption). The topic of the “coming” and the “revealing” of the Messiah in on the lips of all observant Jews in Israel today.
Do not despair, for these troublesome times will also affect the whole world. From the social unrest, strikes and burning of farms with its political unrest in South Africa to the constant strikes and economic social discord in Spain and Europe, the finger of the L-rd is awakening the spiritual hunger and spirit for the Ruach HaKodesh in all people.
These rumblings will be most manifested in the awakening of the “Dry Bones” of the “Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel” just prior to their Second Exodus from the “lands of their dwelling” before HaShem, the G-d of Israel implants them into the tribal homelands of their forefathers”. Where will this “Great Aliyah” of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel” occur? Where will they be “planted” in their Promised Land? It will happen in what is called today the West Bank” in the Mountains of Shomron and the Judea, in Northern Galilee, plus Lebanon, and in the regions of Syria and “East Bank” called Jordan. As Tzvi Fishman wrote in the Jewish Press:
Tzvi Fishman – “The Pillar of Cloud, otherwise known as the Clouds of Glory, or Amud HaAnan, protected the Jewish People in the Wilderness, and the “Amud HaAnan” Operation which Tzahal has now undertaken is intended to protect our beleaguered citizens in the south. But it is much more than that. Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook once wrote:
Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook - “When there is a great war in the world, the power of Moshiach awakens. The time of the song bird has come, with the weeding away of tyrants. The evil ones are obliterated from the world, the world becomes more perfected, and the voice of the turtledove (Kol Ha'Tor) is heard in our Land.
And after the war has climaxed, the world is revitalized with a new spirit, and the ‘Footsteps of the Moshiach are exceedingly revealed. The greater the war’s measure, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the greater the expectation for the ‘Footsteps of the Moshiach’ which the war reveals…
With great insight, incredible valor, with deep and penetrating logic, with true desire, and with clear understanding, we need to receive the exalted contents of the light of G-d which is revealed in wondrous action in the workings of precisely these wars.”

Rabbi Kook ends his essay by quoting from our morning prayers. Make no mistake. This is what Operation “Amud HaAnan” is really all about:
Orot, 2:1 - “The Master of wars, sower of righteousness, Who causes salvation to sprout, the Creator or cures, awesome in praise, the Master of wonders, Who renews His goodness every day the act of Creation, cause a new light to shine upon Zion, and may we all be privileged to see its light”.
Hashem is the Master of wars. And now, as citizens in the south of Israel sit anxiously in their bomb shelters, Hashem is at war. Hashem is weeding out tyrants; the killers of Jewish men, women, and children. Hashem is obliterating evil ones from the world; the murderers from the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
The Moshiach has awakened. He is sitting in the cockpit beside our pilots as they soar over Gaza, cleansing and perfecting the world. While the Israeli Army is fighting, Hashem is sowing righteousness. Hashem is causing salvation to sprout. He is causing a new light to shine upon Zion, and it is our task to open our eyes and see it. No, my friends, this is not a mere war – this is Moshiach in action!
The Mashiach is not only the ideal Jewish king, but a process which evolves over time.
- The Gemara informs us that, “There are 2000 years of Moshiach (Sanhedrin 97A).
- In Tractate Megilla, we learn that, “War is also the beginning of Redemption” (Megilla 17B).
- The Rambam tells us that one of Moshiach’s premier tasks is to fight the wars of Hashem (Laws of Kings and Their Wars, 11:4).
Yes, Operation “Amud HaAnan” has come to protect our citizens, to teach Hamas a painful lesson, and to return our power of detriment, but when you watch the footage on TV, know that you are watching the “Footsteps of Moshiach”. You are witnessing the Sanctification of G-d in the world. Let the word go forth, “There is a living G-d in Israel!”
Yes, war is hell. Yes, if war could be abandoned, the world would be a better place. But the Redemption of Am Yisrael also comes through wars. In the roar of our jets streaking over Gaza, Moshiach is on the way! When evil doers are uprooted from the world, the light of Moshiach appears. The greater the magnitude and force of the war, the greater the revelation of Moshiach which follows.
Our hearts and prayers are with the soldiers of Israel. May Hashem grant them and their commanders the holy courage and valor to finish the job and wipe out the evil in our midst, for the betterment of the world. And may we all be privileged to see and enjoy the new light shining on Zion!”

Tzvi Fishman was awarded the Israel Ministry of Education Prize for Creativity and Jewish Culture for his novel "Tevye in the Promised Land." For the past several years, he has written a popular and controversial blog at Arutz 7. A wide selection of his books are available at Amazon. The views expressed in this blog are solely those of the author and do not represent the views of The Jewish Press.
The State of Israel is again fighting for its life. As the nations that surround the State of Israel, once again we must be perceptive as we see not just a military battle on Planet Earth, but a 3-D battle in Physical Israel as the forces of Light in heaven are also fighting with the Forces of Darkness in the spiritual realms. It will not be completed until the reunion of the Klal Yisra’el (All Israel) when the House of the Ten Tribes of Israel return to join forces with the Jews of the House of Judah. It will also not be completed until the Maschiah of Israel is fully revealed and comes to claim his ‘chosen ones’.
So today, the G-d of Israel is whistling or coaxing you to come back to the brotherhood of Klal Yisra’el (All Israel). To learn more about this redemptive process, you are Welcome to Contact “Kol Ha'Tor”, the Voice of the Turtledove. Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Mission to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail establishing in the region of Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness into a new homeland for the Return of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel when All Israel will finally be redeemed.
