Jewish Rabbi Says He’s Already Holding Meetings With Messiah

Jewish biggest rabbis are all afraid to leave the country lest they miss Messiah’s coming

By: Ryan Jones

The Messiah of Israel is coming, say Israel rabbis.
Yaakov Nahumi/Flash90

A recent interview on Israeli radio again featured prominent rabbis explaining that the Messiah is just about to reveal himself.

Rabbi Yaakov Zisholtz on Sunday told religious broadcaster Radio 2000 that Rabbi Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky recently told him that he (Kanievsky) is already in direct contact with the Messiah.

To understand why religious Jews are taking this seriously, it’s important to know that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky is considered one of the two or three top rabbis of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Israel.

And Rabbi Zisholtz says that Kanievsky and others of the mystical “concealed” rabbis have now tasked him with informing the public of the Messiahs imminent arrival.

Rabbi Zisholtz began his explosive three-hour interview with a warning:

“…the process of redemption is about to start happening very quickly and at a fast pace. It is important that people remain calm and steady to act properly in the right time.

“There is a potential Messiah in every generation and there are righteous men who know precisely who it is. This is, of course, true in this generation.

“Getting the word out now that the Messiah is closer than ever is a matter of life and death. Haven’t you heard of Gog and Magog? That is what is going to happen very soon. Right now, the situation is explosive more than you can possibly imagine. Everyone needs to know whether they are on the inside or if they are going to be left out.”

He went on to reiterated a number of signs of which prominent rabbis have taken note and that they firmly believe to be evidence of the coming of Messiah.

“Rabbi Dov Kook, as everyone knows, is a very righteous man. He is one of the greatest men of our generation…[and] ten years ago, when Israel was suffering from a horrible drought, someone asked Rabbi Kook when the Sea of Galilee will again be full,” recounted Rabbi Zisholtz. “Rabbi Kook responded that when the Messiah arrives, the Sea of Galilee will be full. In a few weeks, the Sea of Galilee will be full for the first time since Rabbi Kook made this statement.”

The rabbi also pointed to Israel’s inability to elect a government, which he said will not change in the upcoming third election scheduled to take place on March 2.

“Another righteous rabbi said that according to the current situation in heaven, there will not be Israeli elections – rather, there will be a war,” cautioned Zisholtz. “If the elections do take place, it’s pointless since it will end like the other elections; no government will come out of it. No one will take the government away from Netanyahu.”

Decades ago, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, one of modern Israel’s most revered sages, as well as the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, both predicted that Benjamin Netanyahu would be the State of Israel’s last prime minister prior to the Messianic Age. A great many, if not most of the ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel continue to believe that to be true.

Technology of Death: The Not-So-Shocking Report on Nazi Weapons Exports

Technology of Death: The Not-So-Shocking Report on Israeli Weapons Exports

The Middle East region, battered by wars and adjoining humanitarian crises that have left millions of people stateless, hungry and diseased, is in urgent need for peace, security and reconstruction. Thanks to the US, Russian, French, Israeli and other weapons manufacturers, however, it is now the dumping ground for military hardware, an ominous sign for the years ahead.

Data released by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) on March 9, paints a grim picture of the world, in general, and the Middle East, in particular. According to the report, the demand for weapons in the warring region has increased by a whopping 61% between 2015 and 2019.

The correlation between arms, war, and casualty count needs no elaborate algorithm to be deciphered, as facts on the ground amply demonstrate. Syria remains the epicenter of conflict in the Middle East, with Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine, and South Sudan trailing, but not far behind.

The top five merchants of death, according to SIPRI, are the United States, Russia, France, Germany, and China. Interestingly, while US arms exports have increased exponentially by 76% in the last five years, Russia’s arms exports fell by 18%.

The US market is in constant expansion as it now includes 96 client countries, while Russia has, essentially, lost one of its most significant clients, India.

Ruled by a right-wing Hindu nationalist government, Delhi has found in Tel Aviv a more ideologically like-minded supplier. The special ‘friendship’ between India’s Narendra Modi and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu has made India Israel’s largest weapons market.

In 2017, Israel’s arms exports reached a record high of $9 billion dollars, following the signing of a $2 billion deal with India. The contracts awarded to the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) were considered the “single largest deal ever signed by the Israeli arms industry.”

With India becoming the largest importer of Israeli arms in the world, Israel is now a secondary party in the protracted conflict between India and Pakistan. The two nuclear-armed countries edged closer to the abyss of a full-blown war in March 2019. Naturally, Israeli weapons, now featured prominently in India’s military arsenal, will play a major role in sustaining any future conflict.

According to the newly-released data, Israel is only second to South Korea in terms of the vast expansion of weapons exports, as Israel’s weapons manufacturing industry has experienced an unprecedented boom in recent years. SIPRI puts that increase at 77%.

Last year, the International Defense Cooperation Directorate of the Israeli Ministry of Defense (SIBAT), which is the cornerstone of Israel’s weapon manufacturing, testing and export, released a comprehensive plan aimed at the expansion of Israel’s global weapons market, with due focus on the US, Finland and India.

What makes Israeli weapons more attractive than others is the fact that they are not accompanied by any political price tag. In other words, Israel is willing to sell weapons to any country, or even non-state actors, openly or secretly, regardless of how these weapons are used and whether their use violates human rights or not.

In May 2019, Amnesty International’s Israeli chapter released an in-depth report that examined Israel’s weapons export markets. Contrary to the claim by Rachel Chen, head of the Israeli Defense Export Controls Agency, that “we will carefully examine the state of human rights in each country before approving export licenses for selling them weapons,” Israel is known for peddling its weapons to the world’s most notorious human rights violators. The list includes Myanmar, Philippines, South Sudan, and Sri Lanka.

A damning proof to the above claim is a statement made by Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte, who is known for his dismal human rights record, on September 4, 2018, during his highly touted visit to Israel. Duterte told Israeli President, Reuven Rivlin, that the Philippines “would henceforth only buy weapons from Israel due to its lack of restrictions,” ‘Times of Israel’ reported.

The US is “a good friend,” Duterte said, but like Germany and China, US weapons come with certain “limitations”.

Considering that Washington provides Israel with over $3 billion worth of weapons annually that are used freely against occupied Palestinians and other Arab nations with no regard whatsoever for international or humanitarian law, one has to marvel at Duterte’s statement.

It is logical to assume that a country that sells weapons to civil war-torn and extremely impoverished South Sudan, has not an iota of regulations, let alone moral standards.

What is unique about the export of Israel’s weapons and so-called ‘security technology’ to the rest of the world, is that they often appear in regions where people are most oppressed and vulnerable. For example, Israeli companies have for years stood at the forefront of successive US administrations’ war on undocumented immigrants.

Moreover, recent years have witnessed the infusion of brutal Israeli military tactics in many aspects of American society, including the militarization of American police, thousands of whom received training in Israel.

Similarly, in 2018, Israeli war technology was incorporated to the European Union’s security apparatus. One such contract was awarded to the Israeli company Elbit, estimated at $68 million, to provide maritime unmanned aircraft system (UAS) services. This technology, which relies on the Hermes 900 Maritime Patrol system, allows Frontex – the European Border and Coast Guard Agency – to intercept war refugees and migrants in their attempts to cross into safer European territories.

Interestingly, the EU has purchased from Israel the same deadly technology that the Israeli army has used against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip during Israel’s so-called ‘Protective Edge’ war of 2014.

The latter fact represents the backbone of Israel’s marketing strategy. Branding its military products as ‘combat-proven’, Tel Aviv is able to obtain top dollar for its bloody technology, as it is able to demonstrate, using actual footage, how its armed drones, for example, can flatten whole Palestinian neighborhoods in seconds and return safely to their bases inside Israel.

SIPRI and Amnesty International are right in exposing Israel’s thriving weapons exports market, while emphasizing the fact that much of these weapons proliferate freely among human rights violators. But far greater focus should be placed on the fact that Israel is, itself, a notorious human rights violator that should be held accountable for its crimes against Palestinians, who are often used as guinea pigs in the testing stage of Israel’s technology of death.

Syria: Military confronts suspected Nazi airstrikes over Homs

Minutes ago, a number of missiles were fired from Lebanese airspace into Syria, resulting in several explosions inside the Homs Governorate.

According to initial reports, the Syrian air defenses were activated after several hostile targets entered Syrian airspace and began hitting the Homs Governorate.

A source from the Syrian Army said their air defense forces were able to intercept some of these projectiles; however, it appears some have also

Prior to the attack, Lebanon’s Sham FM reported that Nazi jets were spotted flying low above the country’s Kesrouan province, which lies on the way between the territory of occupid Palestine 1948 and the Syrian city of Homs. No further detailshave been released at this time.

Lawsuit accuses Trump and other US officials of crimes against Palestinians

  • Also named in the suit are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo
  • McMahon’s lawsuit was filed during African American heritage month

WASHINGTON: A federal lawsuit filed in Washington, DC, last week by 13 Palestinian and American activists accuses US President Donald Trump and his Middle East adviser Jared Kushner of violating Palestinian civil and human rights.

Also named in the suit are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo; Miriam Adelson, the wife of billionaire settler financier Sheldon Adelson; Israeli lobby group the The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC); and 13 others.
Attorney Martin McMahon said the action targets Trump’s “Deal of the Century,” along with laws introduced in 28 American states that illegally deny Americans the right to boycott Israel.

Filed on behalf of 13 plaintiffs, including Palestinians living in America and in occupied Palestine, the lawsuit argues they were stripped of their legal and civil rights not only Israel but by American officials and activists empowered by a biased media and political system.

“I know the system in this country is biased against Palestinian rights, but I also know that the rule of law defends those rights,” McMahon told Arab News. “With the power of the rule of law, we will prevail.”
McMahon’s lawsuit was filed during African American heritage month, which recognizes the civil rights struggles of black Americans who were enslaved and segregated under illegal laws and policies that stripped them of land rights, denied them citizenship and treated them as second-class citizens. These are all crimes that Palestinians are subjected to inside and outside of Israel as a result of American financial and political support.

“The Palestinian cause is very similar to the legal fight by African Americans and by Native Americans,” said McMahon.
“The Nuremberg Trials of 1945 defined that war crimes were illegal, and that wanton destruction of property, extrajudicial killings, collective punishment and land theft are war crimes that fall under the umbrage of the Alien Tort Statute, which is what we use to defend these victims. There is no statute of limitations on these kinds of crimes.”

The Alien Tort Statute is a US Federal law, adopted in 1789, that gives the federal courts jurisdiction to hear lawsuits filed by non-US citizens relating to actions committed in violation of international law.

McMahon confirmed that his 13 clients include American citizens and non-citizens who are living or lived under Israeli occupation. Among them are three members of the Dawabsheh family, including an infant, who were murdered in a July 2015 arson attack in Hebron by Israeli settlers. Several other family members were seriously injured. Although the three Israeli Jewish arsonists were arrested, their actions were enabled by Israel’s government, the lawsuit argues.

The plaintiffs also include Palestinian activists Ahed Al-Tamimi, her father Bassim Al-Tamimi and their extended family, who have been harassed, beaten and jailed by Israeli forces in the village of Nabi Salih for protesting against Israel’s illegal policies. Their family lands were illegally confiscated by Israel.

Others are relatives of Abdul Rahman Barghouthi, who was murdered in Dec. 2016 by Israeli soldiers as he returned to his village, Aboud, near the Israeli settlement of Halamish. The Israeli media claimed Barghouthi attacked and injured an Israeli soldier but witnesses said he was killed in cold blood as a result of long-standing tensions between the village and the armed settlers.

McMahon explained that the lawsuit is based on four main principles.
“Since 1948, (the) defendants have denationalized and dehumanized the Palestinian population, discriminating against them and denying them their legal rights,” he said. “Individuals who contribute money or political support to this illegal system are accomplices. We are suing all of the Americans who have aided and abetted the denationalization of the Palestinian people.”

The second principle, he said, is that Americans have a right to choose to boycott Israel over its apartheid practices that violate international law. The third seeks to declare Netanyahu, who has been Israel’s prime minister for a total of 16 years, a war criminal based on his policies in Gaza and the West Bank.

The fourth principle, McMahon said, involves the illegality of the Trump administration’s “Deal of the Century,” which seeks to give Israel personal property and lands owned by Palestinians and occupied in conflict.
“That is illegal under both international law and American law,” he said. “And because Americans are engaged in this with Israelis, it makes them liable for these actions.”

McMahon said that despite the difficulty of challenging Israel in the pro-Israel American judicial system, he has had some success; most recently in a lawsuit filed in 2016 that also involves the Al-Tamimi family, American officials, and individuals and companies that have financed or support Israel’s illegal settlements.

“That lawsuit also addresses an injustice against the Palestinians, and it was initially thrown out by the Federal Court,” McMahon said. “But it was reinstated by the US Federal Appeals Court because we have the weight of the law on our side.”

McMahon said Jewish Americans have filed many lawsuits against Palestinian organizations and individuals asserting terrorism, violence and loss of property rights, but the time in which US courts only entertain pro-Israel lawsuits has ended.

“My law firm won’t sit back,” he said. “We will defend the legal rights of Palestinians or Americans. Anyone who feels they have been denied their rights should contact my office and I will include them in the lawsuit.”

The other 13 defendants in the lawsuit are AIPAC officials Brian Shankman and Howard Kohr, international attorney Gustaff Cardelius, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, housing investor Daniel Gilbert, former Senate Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Trump legal adviser and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Trump adviser Jason Greenblatt, New York City Council member Donald Hikind, former Arkansas Governor Michael Huckabee, Israel Defense Forces activist Susan Levin-Abir, former Palestinian terrorist and now celebrated pro-Israel advocate Walid Shoebat, and University of Haifa Chairman Dov Weissglas.

Palestine: An increasing concern for the lives of 28 prisoners who spent more than a quarter of a century

By:Sammi Ibrahem,Sr


thumb (20)

Nazi occupied Ramallah: The Palestinian Prisoners Studies Center said that there is a growing concern and a real fear for the lives of 28 prisoners who have spent more than a quarter of a century (25 years) in Nazi Camp’s and are still behind bars and demanded their unconditional release.

The media spokesman for the center, Riyad Al-Ashqar, said in a press statement today, Tuesday, that the old prisoners are at greater risk than others in light of the spread of the Corona virus, as they are old, and they spent many years inside prisons, which affected the health status of them and most of them suffer from various diseases and their weak immunity which It poses a real danger to their lives.

He demanded the need to release these prisoners under the exceptional circumstances that the world lives in, fearing for their lives if the Corona virus reached the occupation prisons, especially since there was a previous agreement to release them that took place 7 years ago between the authority and the occupation to release all the old prisoners, where the occupation released 3 Batches, and the release of the fourth batch was stopped.

He pointed out that at least 26 of these prisoners were supposed to be released in 2013 based on an agreement to release (104) old prisoners, 74 of whom were released while 30 remain free of them 3 after they spent 22 years in the occupation prisons, While last year, prisoner Fares Baroud was martyred after 28 years in detention.

He indicated that at least 26 of these prisoners were supposed to be released 7 years ago, based on an agreement between Zionist puppet Ab-A$ and the Nazi occupation to release all the old. The occupation released 78 of them, and stopped the release of the fourth batch of 30 prisoners, 3 of whom were freed after having They spent 22 years in the occupation prisons, while the last year, “Fares Baroud,” was martyred after 28 years in detention.

He added that the majority of these prisoners are detainees before the Oslo agreement, and they all spent more than 25 years in the occupation prisons, including 12 prisoners from the residents of the occupied areas in 1948, led by the Dean of the Prisoners, all of the captive Karim Yusef Younis, who has been detained since 6/1/1983, and the prisoner Maher Abdel Latif Younis was arrested in the same year.

He called on the prisoners of Palestine institutions concerned with the affairs of the prisoners and the various media to give them more space and attention, in a way that contributes to their support and shed light on their cause and highlight their own suffering, especially in this exceptional circumstances.

Nazi regime, US Air Force F-35s in First Joint Training

Israeli, US Air Force F-35s in First Joint Training in Israel

The “Enduring Lightning” exercise in southern illegally occupied Palestine 1948 – joint training between Nazi “Adir” (F-35I) aircraft from the IAF’s 140 squadron (“Golden Eagle”), alongside F-35 aircraft operated by the USAF’s (United States Air Force) 34th Fighter Squadron, has come to an end.

The IAF’s 122 squadron (“Nahshon”), which operates the “Nahshon” (Gulfstream G-500) Control Aircraft, also participated in the exercise, during which the teams faced various aerial and ground threats in advanced 5th generation aircraft.

Number One Partner
This is the third time “Adir” aircraft train alongside foreign F-35’s. In June of 2019, the IAF, USAF, and RAF (Royal Air Force), joint training exercise “Tri-Lightning” took place. Additionally, in November of 2019, the international “Blue Flag” exercise hosted Italian F-35’s, and as stated, this week, the IAF’s “Adir” aircraft trained alongside its American counterpart. What’s unique about the current exercise is its location – for the first time, American F-35 aircraft participated in a joint training exercise.

“The Americans are our number one partner”, shares Maj. T, Head of the IAF’s International Exercises Department. “I see great importance in cooperating on the most advanced plane in our collection with us as hosts. The IAF finds it important to work together with the Americans, leaders of the F-35 project, see how they operate, learn from them, and strengthen cooperation in the field of cutting-edge aviation technology”.

Maj. M, leader of the exercise on behalf of the 140 squadron, adds: “This will be the second time we’ll fly alongside an American F-35. We aspire to stay as connected as possible to countries involved in its development project, and training with the Americans presents an excellent opportunity to do so since they have a lot of knowledge and expertise on the matter. The exercise we conducted was intimate. The forces flew in two formations of four, and communicated directly as opposed to through an indirect channel”.

Home Court
The exercise was held exclusively in the air, with no face-to-face encounters between the Nazi regime and American teams. Additionally, debriefings and briefings were conducted using classified communications devices – all due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. “During these times, holding this international training exercise with the world’s most advanced flight platforms, while facing limitations – should not be taken for granted”, describes Maj. T.

The exercise laid a foundation for more of its kind in the IAF’s home court “We intend to create an exercise so it will eventually become a home court exercise”, explains Maj. T. “In other words, we aspire to train like we did yesterday with American forces here in Israel regularly”.

2020: Elimination of the State of ‘Israel’

By Bohdan Lysystsia for VT

In 2020, the state of Israel will cease to exist. At the end of 2018, in search of a place to evacuate, Netanyahu flew to Brazil. Even then, he knew something very important.

Recently, a prophecy of a famous Jewish rabbi about the end of the state of Israel in 2020 appeared on one of the sites. The prophecy was said in 1976.


“I heard it almost personally. I don’t hint at anything, don’t call for anything, I simply retell it, because this is from a series of stories about the Rebbe that for some reason did not become known (or unreliable, God forbid). With some effort, there is everything you need to reach the participant in the events.

Mid-May 2019, Bat Yam, Shabbat farbrengen after morning prayer at the Chabad synagogue. A trustworthy parishioner says: his father has a habit of performing Mivtsu tefillin in the center for people who need constant supervision and help. And the last (before that Shabbat) time, he imposed tefillin to one elderly gentleman. He, having noticed signs of a habadnik on it – a flag of Moshiach, etc., was encouraged – “Oh, you are a habadnik! Now I’ll tell you this, I haven’t told anyone yet, there’s nobody here. ”

Here is his story:

– I was one of the accompanying officers at that very famous meeting of the “IDF honors pupils” with the Rebbe in New York in 1976. We were admirably received and we even had the honor to talk to the Rebbe separately. The Rebbe was very friendly and answered our questions. When I had the opportunity, I asked what worried me: “What will happen to the state of Israel?” – After all, the tense situation after the Yom Kippur war evoked gloomy thoughts. The Rebbe looked at me and said the following words: “Two zero two zero zero – it will end”. (שתים אפס שתים אפס זה נגמר).


The end of the text.

Other events and symbols also indicate the liquidation of the state of Israel in 2020.

March 28, a huge meteorite fell on Nigeria.

A meteorite damaged many houses and structures, caused an earthquake and created a huge funnel in the ground. All indications are that the coronavirus epidemic, the deployment of troops in different countries and this meteorite are only the beginning of the tremendous upheavals that humanity is expecting in 2020.

On April 29, 2020, asteroid 52768 (1998 OR2) will fly close to Earth.

There is a high probability that the asteroid will change its route and hit the Earth.

April 29, 2020 is a very unusual day. In the Jewish calendar, this date corresponds to 5. Iyar, 5780

Day May 14, 1948, the date of creation of the state of Israel, corresponds to 5. Iyar, 5708

Wednesday, 29. April, 2020 = 5. Iyar, 5780

Friday, 14. May, 1948 = 5. Iyar, 5708

  1. Iyar, 5708 – 5. Iyar, 5780

Here the same numbers and the difference between the dates of 72 years.

The number 72 is 27 on the contrary. 27 is the three numbers 9 (9 + 9 + 9), which is the inverted three sixes 666.

In the list of words of the Bible (“Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance”) at number 72 there is a “help stone”.

 72. Eben Haezer 

Strong’s Concordance

Eben Haezer: “stone of the help,” a place of unc. location, also a commemorative stone

Original Word: אֶבֶן הָעֵזֶר

Part of Speech: Noun

Transliteration: Eben Haezer

Phonetic Spelling: (eh’-ben haw-e’-zer)

Definition: “stone of the help”, a place of unc. location, also a commemorative stone

The approaching asteroid is a “help stone” from God to destroy the existing world order and the state of Israel, as one of its pillars.

April 29 will be 40 days from the start of the blocking of countries.

The number 40 is present in the prophecy of the prophet Jonah about the death of Nineveh:

And Jonah began to walk around the city, how much you can go on one day, and preached, saying: another forty days – and Nineveh will be destroyed!

(Jonah 3: 4)

April 29 is the 119th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. In leap years, this is the 120th day. 2020 is a leap year, it is the 120th day. The number 120 is the limit of the life of the present person.

And the Lord said: It is not eternal for My Spirit to be neglected by men, because they are flesh; may their days be one hundred and twenty years.

(Genesis 6: 3)

On March 28, 2020, a message appeared on (

), made as if on behalf of a NASA insider. According to his information, in the region on April 2, 2020, NASA expects a hit on the planet of a colossal asteroid.

The era of humanity that began after the Flood is ending. The previous civilization of the Atlanteans was destroyed by the Flood. The rapidly approaching comet Atlas portends the demise of present-day humanity and the speedy return of the Atlanteans.

Turkey and Coronavirus: Devout Muslims Will Defeat the “Jewish Plot”

By Burak Bekdi

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,501,

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Turkey appears to be handling the coronavirus crisis relatively well, although its low case numbers reflect the low number of tests being administered. Pious Turkish Muslims are blaming dark anti-Turkish forces and, of course, the Jews for unleashing the virus on the world.

Turkey’s fight against coronavirus (COVID-19) is generally accepted to be rational, well-timed, not too badly planned, and fairly effective. At the time when the German case toll was 7,000 (and the Dutch and UK case tolls were at around 2,000 each), Turkey’s was just 98. And when, on March 19, the Italian death toll surpassed China’s at 4,400, the Turkish mortality figure was just three. The government sealed borders—most significantly with Iran—just in time; cancelled all public gatherings and events, including football games; ordered most businesses to be shuttered; and launched an effective awareness campaign to keep Turks at home. About 3,000 Turkish pilgrims on their way home from Mecca were quarantined. The Turkish awareness rate of coronavirus was 100% by mid-March, according to one poll.

But several questions remain unanswered. Why did the Turkish religious authorities allow 21,500 people to travel to Mecca in the first place? Would it not have been safer for them to wait to fulfill their pilgrimage until after the world goes back to normal? And why were only 3,000 pilgrims quarantined? The other 18,500 returnees from Mecca are walking free in Turkey.

The question also arises: was the number of Turkish cases low because of government censorship? No, the “Turkish success” can be much more easily explained. The number of reported Turkish cases was low because the number of tests Turkey conducted was low. As of March 16, Turkey had performed just 2,800 tests (two tested positive out of a population of 83 million). Compare that to South Korea, which has performed 250,000 tests (8,100 tested positive out of a population of 51 million). It’s simple: if you don’t test people, you don’t put cases on the books.

Coronavirus in Turkey, like most things in that country, highlights the black humor in tragedy. As ever, Turkey is fun unless you have to live there.

Professor Ali Erbaş, president of Diyanet, Turkey’s highest religious authority, gave a Friday sermon in which he warned Muslims not to attend crowded events. He delivered this sermon at a mosque containing 5,000 people. A few days later, Diyanet issued a fatwa indefinitely suspending Friday prayers.

Turks are a brave people, and pious Turks are apparently the bravest of all. Large groups of Muslims protested Diyanet for the suspension of Friday prayers on the logic that prayers would surely protect the pious from any evil, up to and including a silly little virus. Reading the news of the protests, a friend of the author said, “It’s a view we should respect. It’s also a theory worth testing. How about injecting the coronavirus into all these pious folks?”

But the way “better-educated” Turks, including journalists and columnists, interpret the coronavirus crisis is even more entertaining.

One Islamist writer suggested that “now that all bars and alcohol-licensed enterprises are (temporarily) shut maybe we should consider keeping them shut forever due to the risk of coronavirus.”

Another suggested that the “CHP virus”—CHP is the acronym for Turkey’s secular main opposition party—is far more dangerous than coronavirus.

Pro-government media claimed they had found the real conspiracy: the virus was first detected in Turkey on the day a new opposition party, DEVA, was officially inaugurated, which cannot be a coincidence. Any opposition party challenging President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is tantamount to a deadly virus threatening Turkey.

Other Islamists had a more intellectual, global response to the virus: they threw down a gauntlet before science. Tell us, positivists, secularists: where is your cure? Where is the “science” you always put before religion?

Turkish social media is of course a rich source of “scientific” interpretations of the coronavirus crisis, many of them larded with predictable self-aggrandizement, paranoia, and antisemitism:

  • “Thanks to the power we inherited from our (Ottoman) ancestors we will kill all viruses and infidels.”
  • “We will defeat the virus as we will defeat the entire world.”
  • “Jews manufactured and spread the virus to end western civilization.”
  • “We will annihilate the global masters behind the virus.”
  • “The virus is only a minor part of a bigger game that targets Turkey.”
  • “The virus was created to overthrow Erdoğan, leader of the umma.”
  • “The Islamic army will defeat the infidel virus.”

Viruses change, but Islamist rhetoric does not. Yeniden Refah, a small Islamist party, said: “Though we do not have certain evidence, this virus serves Zionism’s goals of decreasing the number of people and preventing it from increasing, and important research expresses this. Zionism is a five-thousand-year-old bacteria that has caused the suffering of people.”

One collective response that neatly illustrates the Turkish approach to a crisis was a television interview with ordinary citizens in the marketplace in Elaziğ, a province in eastern Turkey. A local broadcaster sent a team to interview the locals after reporters noticed with shock that the streets and main marketplace of Elaziğ were full of people, so much so that the province was even more crowded than it had been before coronavirus. The crew asked passersby, “What about coronavirus? Aren’t you afraid to be in crowded public places?”

Three interviewees expressed confidence that the power of prayer will defeat all viruses. A few claimed that coronavirus does not exist—it is a lie swallowed by a credulous world. Another said, “Allah always protects the believer.” Another contributed this theory: “The entire world is at war with Turkey. This virus is Allah’s curse on them.”

The Yemeni Armed Forces carry out the largest qualitative military operation deep into Saudi Arabia

By: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

The Yemeni armed forces announced their implementation of the largest qualitative military operation at the beginning of the sixth year, targeting the depth of Saudi Arabia in response to the escalation of the aggression.

The joint military operation of the missile force and the Yemeni Armed Air Force targeted a number of sensitive targets in the Zio_Wahhabi capital, Riyadh, with Zulfiqar missiles and a number of Samad 3 aircraft.

Gaza: On the Brink of Its Own Coronavirus Crisis

On the Brink of Its Own Coronavirus Crisis, Gaza Appeals to Israel and the World for Help

Faced with shortages, poor equipment and a sore lack of protective gear, Gaza’s doctors work in fear, with everyone betting on underfunded prevention

Gaza’s Health Ministry issued an urgent appeal to the World Health Organization for critical medical equipment in the event of a coronavirus outbreak, with senior officials warning of catastrophic consequences if the virus manages to spread in the coastal enclave.

“We are asking the UN and the international community to give us immediate support, including ventilators and intensive care equipment to deal with the epidemic,” Health Ministry spokesman Dr. Ashraf al-Qudra told a press briefing on Tuesday.skip – Netanyahu’s corona smokescreen and Gaza’s ‘God-help-us’ moment

The ministry said there is an immediate need for some 150 ventilators to cater for Gaza’s two million people. According to a senior ministry official, there are currently only 65 machines, and they are already in very high demand. Most of the equipment used in hospitals is in poor condition, he warned, and there just won’t be any means to treat those who are ill if the virus spreads.

“We are focusing our efforts on preventing the virus from spreading and averting all possibility of contact with patients,” the official said, “we make sure that anyone arriving from Israel or Egypt immediately isolate themselves.”

“If there is a massive spread we will lose control and this will create a huge disaster,” he added.

Medical personnel at several hospitals in Gaza deplore the shortage of protective equipment as well as basic disinfectants. “The Hamas government is trying to send out the message that there is control, and that until now there have only been two cases, but we work in fear,” a doctor at a hospital in northern Gaza told Haaretz, “I don’t know what will happen if there’s an outbreak.”

Amid global shortage, little help forthcoming

“We know there is a worldwide shortage,” a doctor at Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital said, “but we expect the World Health Organization will be able to provide at least a few dozen machines immediately, and Israel as well, as the power in control of the border crossings. We expect Egypt too and other Arab countries to provide immediate aid, before it is too late,” he added.

Officially, Gaza should be receiving aid from the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, but according to senior officials in the Gaza health system, and Israeli officials familiar with the matter, no assistance has been sent to fight the spread of the coronavirus. For the Hamas government, the matter is clear: “Israel bears full responsibility for the lives of 2 million civilians in the Gaza Strip,” al-Qudra told journalists on Tuesday.

Israel acknowledges there’s a significant shortage in equipment, but besides several hundred testing kits and 1,000 protective suits for medical crews that were sent to Gaza via the WHO, there are no estimates for if and when further equipment will be provided, particularly ventilators, the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories told Haaretz. No medical equipment will be transferred from any Israeli hospitals to Gaza.

Earlier this week, international organizations held a training session for 30 Gaza physicians at a compound at the Erez border crossing – but resources are scarce and the main effort still focuses on preventing the entry of any people who are ill.

Gaza health authorities are using the few hundred test kits they have received in the past two weeks only on people coming in from outside, or those suspected of being in contact with people who have caught the virus.

According to al-Qudra, 144 people have been tested so far, and only two of them tested positive. Both were returning from Pakistan. The number of people in isolation has risen to 1420, while 1969 people are in home isolation after 102 were released in the past two days after their 14 day quarantines.

‘It’s as though we are lepers’

Meanwhile, people returning to Gaza via the Rafah crossing with Egypt, and who have been put in isolation in schools and other centers, have complained of poor hygiene conditions and shortages in basic needs, such as food and drinking water.

“It’s as though we are lepers,” a person kept in confinement told Haaretz. “We have no problem remaining in isolation, but we should at least get basic amenities. We are eight people to a room, sleeping on classroom floors.”

“The question is whether we could spread the virus to each other, and then how would they stop it from spreading throughout Gaza,” they added. “The conditions we are being kept in are a recipe for the spread of infection and disease.”
