The weekly message from Rabbi Nachman Kahana expounds on the way “the age old ethical-philosophic problem of defining right and wrong and what is good and what is bad” has actually been resolved. (A more detailed explanation can be found near the top of this linked page.)
Rabbi Kahana, the spiritual leader of the Chazon Yechezkel synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City, grew up in Brooklyn and has something of a following among New York City-area supporters of a strong, safe Israel.
Rabbi Kahana provides his own definition for good acts (acts that benefit the Jewish people) and bad acts (“anti-Semitic one[s]”). With that as a starting point, he, referring to Arab Muslim countries, explains why “[d]uring the last six months, we have been witnessing the unexpected, sudden downfall of many evil leaders by the hand of their equally evil subjects.”
Later on in his message, Rabbi Kahana goes into the Books of Isaiah and Daniel to explain why, “as moving as these events appear to be on the front pages of newspapers and on TV screens, they are only the shadow of what is actually transpiring. The real story is as follows.” [Again, there is a link to the full text of Rabbi’s message.]
In Part B of Rabbi Kahana’s message, drawing on current events again, he provides a [politically incorrect, certainly according to the American Media-Government Complex] Talmudic explanation for earthquakes. [Readers will have to go to the link for the details.]
Also, in his Part B, Rabbi Kahana, consistently with what he has said previously, explains a more divine reason for the current economic downturn in the United States:
The other misfortune to have fallen on the United States, as the leader of the western world, is the economic downturn. The economic indicators can measure the severity of the catastrophe, and can even explain what brought it about in economic terms, such as housing mortgages, etc., but that again is the superficial appearance of what is really causing the misery.
As I have previously written, it is happening because the US is the world’s leader in pressuring the Jewish people to refrain from building and developing the lands promised to us by the Creator.
In the end, Rabbi Kahana concludes: “HaShem [an appropriate way to refer to G-d] has brought the United States to the position of a world leader, but if it turns its back on the people of the Bible, we the Jews in Eretz Yisrael [the Land of Israel] shall find ‘relief and deliverance’ from wherever HaShem will choose, but the western world will decline and fall.”
