God Has Mail
Israel Faxx News Service
Jews wanting to send a note to God used to have to travel to Jerusalem and stuff them into one of the Kotel's many crevices, but now the Lord is accepting e-mail. Bezeq, Israel's phone company, announced Monday that it is expanding its role as facilitator by enhancing its existing fax service to the Wall. Many Jews believe that God will grant the pleas placed between the massive stones of the Wall, a retaining wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple. Notes to God via the Western Wall can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to +972 2 561 2222
A Monologue with HaShem Regarding Earthquakes and Other 'Stuff'
By Emanuel A. Winston (Commentary)
For many years I have put this request into HaShem's 'in-box' - that He please
compensate His people for much of the world's unholy treatment of the Jewish people. My
national memory as a Jew covers several thousand years of unremitting cruelty, mostly
inspired by the Church but, later enthusiastically taken up by the Muslims - with both
competing for G-d's Covenant or, at least, to be 'Numero Uno' in G-d's recognition. Then
the Christians and Muslims would have to fight each other for primacy.
Of course, to achieve that they had to either eliminate the Jewish people or absorb
them under the threat of their death. They tried both but, still the Jews remain their
main irritant, having not accepted their fast track to G-d's attention. So, with some
frequency, I importune HaShem to deal with these dedicated enemies in whatever order of
destruction he may choose. First, I spoke of Germany, France, Poland, Russia and, of
course, the Vatican, where it all began. There were a variety of plagues to choose from:
Earthquakes, Asteroids, Wars of Mass Destruction, Memorable Pandemic Diseases - etc.
Then I moved to the Middle East. I suggested earthquakes that would level Cairo,
Damascus, Teheran, Baghdad - with Amman and Beirut remaining nominal villains - in order
of justifiable punishment. I had not forgotten to include the U.N., the E.U., or even then
non-Jewish Jews who - as in times past betrayed their own people.
As a side request, I asked HaShem to shrug His Shoulders at Solomon's Temple in order
to collapse the pagan constructions that were built over G-d's desecrated Holy of Holies.
The news from Arutz Sheva (IsraelNationalNews) describes the beginnings of such a
Report from the Kotel's Women's Section That Collapsed
Contrary to some panicky reports, the Western Wall has not collapsed - but the hill
jutting out from it under the Mughrabim Gate is another story. Apparently due to the
earthquake last week, together with the snow, seeping water and unstable mud, the hill -
or its buttressing wall - began to collapse this past Saturday night during the snowstorm.
The women's section of the Western Wall plaza, just to the left and below the hill, has
been closed until further notice. Another area of the Kotel has been "granted" to the
women worshippers for the duration.
A large crane was at the site Monday morning, delicately taking apart the top part of
the hill's supporting wall. Arutz-7, speaking with the crane operator at the site, learned
that he had taken apart the wall to the left of the Mughrabim Gate, but could not continue
taking down the lower levels of the wall, "because behind it is earth and the whole thing
would collapse." The crane left the site around noon.
The photograph below shows the Mughrabim Gate to the right and above the Western Wall
plaza. The wall (at the left of the photo) was dismantled Monday.
The Mughrabim Gate is located atop the Western Wall, to the right of the main
worshipers' area. Visitors to the Temple Mount have traditionally entered through it, but
Rabbi Yosef Elboim, a frequent visitor to the Western Wall and Temple Mount, told Arutz-7
that the Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount are now being routed through the Shalshelet
(Chain) Gate, located alongside the Kotel some 100 meters to the north (left) of the
Western Wall plaza and not visible from there).
"I am happy that the closing of the Mughrabim Gate was not used as an excuse to prevent
Jews from visiting the Temple Mount," he said, but added that this is only a partial
solution, and demands, for Halakhic [Jewish legal] reasons, that the Temple Mount's Tribes
Gate, near Lions Gate, be opened to Jewish visitors.
On the other hand, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, Rabbi of the Western Wall, told Arutz-7
that the Halakhic ban on entry to the Temple Mount remains in effect. "There are some
rabbis who feel that the southern portion of the Mount is not forbidden," he explained,
"but over the years many great rabbis have banned, and continue to ban, all entry - for
fear that many Jews will not know where they may walk and will thus violate a very grave
Elboim explained that the hill to the right of the women's section is an old one,
"built of layer upon layer of old buildings. Of late, the authorities have tried to
refurbish the entrance to the Temple Mount, but apparently the construction, together with
the earthquake and the snow, rocked the foundations and it began to fall apart."
Another Clear Message from the G-d of Israel
The Temple Mount Faithful Movement (Commentary)
On Saturday, Feb. 14, another wall on the Temple Mount collapsed in the area of the
Western Wall. The wall was the continuation of the Western Wall and which contained the
western (Mugrabe) gate leading to the Temple Mount. Stones from the collapsed wall fell in
the women's prayer area at the Western Wall while women were praying in the area. It was a
miracle that none were hurt.
It happened on Saturday while Jerusalem was being covered with snow. The collapse
occurred four days after the earthquake, which shook all of Israel, including Jerusalem.
The earthquake was stronger in the Jerusalem area than in other areas as Jerusalem is
closer to the epicenter, which was north of the Dead Sea.
Archaeologists and scientists stated that the collapse of the wall was as a result of
the quake as well as the snow. The archaeologist, Dr. Eilat Mazal, from the committee for
the prevention of the destruction of the antiques on the Temple Mount said that "the
occurrence of another much bigger collapse is only a question of time and it will cause a
major disaster". Other archaeologists and scientists stated that the collapse is just a
forerunner of further collapses on the Temple Mount.
It is so special and a clear message from G-d that the collapses and the bulges
occurred in the walls of the main biblical gates of the Temple Mount, the southern wall in
which were the gates where the millions of Jewish pilgrims entered in biblical times, ion
the eastern wall where the Golden-Shushan Gate where the Messiah will enter the Temple
Mount, and the western wall where the main gates were situated for the entrance of the
kings and priests of Israel. The godly message is so clear - He wants to open the gates,
which were blocked up during history by the Muslims and Arabs, for His people, Israel.
In another recent report I wrote about a Jewish tradition that, in the time of the
redemption of Israel, G-d would cause an earthquake to destroy the foreign mosques on the
Temple Mount and open the way for the building of the end-time Temple. This time has
already come. We are now living in the end-times, a time of the redemption of the people
of Israel. The Temple Mount is now at the center of the godly end-time events of our time.
It was so unique that the earthquake of Feb. 11 also caused a crack in the ceiling of
the Knesset office of the Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon. It was a clear message from G-d to
Ariel Sharon as well to fulfill his godly task and to redeem the Temple Mount and to build
the end-time Temple of G-d. It is no accident that it happened exactly so in the office of
Sharon. It was also a godly message to him not to withdraw from the holy biblical areas of
Israel in Judea, Samaria and Gaza and not to evacuate the Jewish settlement there which
are a fulfillment of end-time prophecy of the G-d of Israel and very holy to Him and, as
He commanded us, will never be removed:
