“This is my exchange, this is my substitute, this is my expiation. This chicken shall go to death and I shall proceed to a good, long life and peace.”

Kabbalist War Prophesy

October 15, 2007

I missed this article when it first appeared on July 22 of this year. The article states that Zionist war prophesies were revealed in part by autistic children! I suppose they’re at least as coherent as John Hagee. There is an occult tradition of fascination with mentally insane persons who are perceived to have great psychic powers.

Kabbalists: Great, Miraculous War Coming

(IsraelNN.com) A report Saturday night quoted several important Kabbalists, as well as senior Ashkenazic Hareidi Rabbis, as saying that a major war would take place in Israel “very soon.” The reports quoted senior Hareidi Rabbi Baruch Avraham Rakovsky, who said that during a recent gathering where senior Kabbalists discussed important issues of the day, it was revealed through a variety of means – including communication with autistic children – that a major war was in the offing. However, great “open miracles, such as those that occurred when the Jews left Egypt,” would take place. The events they were referring to, they said, would clearly be understood as miracles, even to those who were not expert in Kabbalistic studies.

The Kabbalists did not reveal the specific details on the war, but said that Iran would be involved. Already, they said, Hashem was performing miracles: During the past five times that Iranian President Ahmadinejad threatened Israel, they said, major natural catastrophes, such as earthquakes, occured a short time afterwards.

Other Hareidi leaders last week told their students similar messages, including HaRav Chaim Cohen (“HaChalvan”), who said that Israel was in a position to quickly destroy its enemies, and HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, who said that “Hashem will soon perform great miracles for the Jewish people.”

Benedict’s Elder Brothers and their Voodoo Ritual

September 20, 2007
Ultra-Orthodox Jews performing the “kapparot.”

The ancient [kapparot] ceremony involves swinging a live chicken overhead in a ritual transference of the person’s sins in preparation for the day of atonement. It may be performed anytime between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. (“Court rules ‘kapparot’ ritual violates animal slaughter laws,” Amiram Cohen and Yair Ettinger, Haaretz, September 18, 2007)

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/904943.html

“An animal used as a sort of vicarious sacrifice on the day previous to the Day of Atonement. As a rule, a cock is taken by a male, and a hen by a female person, and after the recitation of Ps. cvii. 17-20 and Job xxxiii. 23-24 the fowl is swung around the head three times while the right hand is put upon the animal’s head. At the same time the following is thrice said in Hebrew: “This be my substitute, my vicarious offering, my atonement. This cock [or hen] shall meet death, but I shall find a long and pleasant life of peace!” After this the animal is slaughtered and given to the poor, or, what is deemed better, is eaten by the owners while the value of it is given to the poor.” (Jewish Encyclopedia, “kapparah”)
