The Gog and Magog war

The terrorist attach on the US had actually triggered the war, which according to the ancient writing that we have, is the Gog and Magog war, the same war that is mentioned by Ezekiel (38-39) and by many other prophets. This page demonstrates how the terrorist attack on the US does indicate the start of the great last war, Gog and Magog war, and also details what's supposed to happen is this war.

Midrash: Terror in a big city before Redemption

The YALKUT SHIM'ONI, which is a collection of Jewish ancient rabbis (HAZAL/RAZAL) brings in "clue 506" a commentary on the Haftarah that was read in synagogues on the exact week when the terrorist attack occurred. This is the commentary according to the old Midrash ("Pirkey Rabbi Elie'zer"):

Rabbi Ishmael says: The Ishmaelites shall make three wars of panic in the Latter Days, as it is written (Isiah 21,15): "For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword".
  • One in the sea (there): "from the bent bow"
  • One in land (there): "from the drawn sword"
  • One in a big city, which is heavier than both, as it is written: "from the distress of war"
And then [the Messiah] son of [King] David shall emerge, and will show us the destruction of those and those, and will come from there to the Land of Israel, as it is written (Isiah 63): "Who is it who comes from Edom" etc.
When HaShem (G-d) comes from Edom, the SHARET angels come before him and find his closes red as scarlet. They say (there): "Why is your apparel red". He says to them, I had a small winepress and I have trodden it, as it is said (there): "I have trodden the winepress alone". At the same time, HaShem (G-d) takes all of the sins of Israel and puts them on the evil Esau, as it is written...

This extraordinary Midrash, from about 2000 years ago, describes in a clear manner an amazing thing: The Islamic Terror (Ishmaelite=Arabs and Islam in Jewish tradition, "war of panic" must be terrorist attacks, not ordinary war) will eventually strike a huge city (Hebrew phrase: "KRACH"), and that will be the last war that the Ishmaelites will start, and after this war - the Messiah will be revealed, and the people of Israel shall see destruction of two great religions.

It is interesting, that about the question of what happens with the sins of the people of Israel, it is written that HaShem (G-d) is transferring all the sins of Israel to Esau, which in Jewish tradition represents Christianity. This resembles the Ben-Ish-Hay prophecy about the big blow that was transferred before Elul 25th (see Sep. 11th page).
The Zohar: Before Redemption -
Moslems will fight against Christians

The holy Zohar (written some 2000 years ago by rabbi Shim'on Bar-Yoahi ZYA"A), prophesied the next passage (brought in the commentary on Exodus, VaEra parasha, page 32):
And the Ishmaelites shall rule the holy land, at the time when it is empty, for a long time, as their circumcision is empty, and not whole (Moslems only remove the prepuce (ORLA). Jews have another stage for the Brith called PRIAA), and they shall prevent the Israelites from returning to their homeland (Since the beginning of Jewish immigration to Israel, Arabs used violence against the Jews, wars and terror attacks. This still prevents the majority of Jews which is in the Diaspora to make Aliyah to Israel) until that privilege of the Ishmaelites will expire.
And the Ishamelites shall ignite big wars in the world, until they will make the Edomites (which are Christians by Jewish tradition) gather to a war against them.
And shall make wars: one on the sea, one in land and (one) near Jerusalem. And those shall rule over those. And the holy land will not be handed over to the Edomites (Christians).
At that time, one people will be awaken from the end of the world to the big sinful city, and there he will ignite a war that will last three months. And peoples will gather there, and will fall in his hands.
Until all the Edomites (Christians) will gather on him (from all the ends of the world). Then HaShem (G-d) will be awakened on them.
This is the meaning of the writing (Isiah 34,6): "For HaShem has a sacrifice in Bossrah" etc. and at the end of it, it says (Job 38,13): "to take hold of the ends of the earth"
And shall destroy the Ishamelites from us, and will break all the armies of Above, and there shall not remain any army Above for a people of the world, except for the army of Israel exclusively.
This is the meaning of the writing (Psalms 121,5): "HaShem (G-d) is your shadow on your right hand", because the holy name is in the (spiritual) right side, and the Torah is also in the (spiritual) right side. Therefore all depends on the right side.
And we have learnt orally: He who come to pray, will put his right hand over his left hand, as it was established in Jewish Halacha.
At the Latter Days (Psalms 60): "Deliver your right and answer me", and at that time it is written (Zefaniah 3): "For then I shall turn to peoples in a clear language, all to call the name of HaShem (G-d), to worship him together". And it is written (Zechariah 14): "And HaShem (G-d) shall be the King of all the land, on that day HaShem (G-d) will be one, and his name will be one".
HaShem shall be blessed for ever, Amen and Amen.

We definitely see here an amazing prophecy of Moslems "making troubles" to Jews in the Land of Israel, but - more important - that the Moslems will ignite a war which will bring most of the Christian nations to fight them, as we see the beginning of the process right before our eyes with the Sep. 11 attack and the war in Afghanistan. We know as a fact that bin Laden wanted to start a war with Christianity, because Islam believes that the last war will be made between "believers" (in Islam) and "Romans" (Christians).

The outstanding thing is, that the Zohar was written about 2000 years ago, when Christianity was only in the beginning and Mohammed wasn't even born yet...
The Zohar: The end of the war

The Zohar, at VaYera parasha, page 119 it is written how this war will end, before the appearance of the Messiah. Pay attention that the Zohar uses the phrase "hailstones" (AVNEY- ELGAVISH), which is the same phrase used at the description of Gog and Magog war (Ezekiel 38,32).

In the 70th, on three (months?), all the kings of the worlds shall gather to the (big) city, and HaShem (G-d) shall awake on them hail and hailstones, and they will be lost from the world. And only the kings that shall not go there will remain in the world, to return for other wars.
From that time the Messiah King will be awakened all over the world, and will gather with him few peoples and few armies from all the edges of the world.
And all of the Israelites will be gathered, in all their places.
In the fallow year wars will occur


The Babylonian Talmud talks in big extent on "Sanhedrin" about the time when the redemption will come, and the Messiah will appear (see more details on the redemption year signs page). It is written there that on the fallow year (SHNAT SHMITA) which will be one year before the appearance of the Messiah, there shall be wars.

The year of 5761 was a fallow year. Just at the beginning of this Hebrew year, The Arabs in the holy land started what they call "Al-Aqsa Intifada". The terrorist attack came on the last week of the year.

It's interesting to mention, that based on this prophecy of the Talmud, Rabbi Amnon Yitzhak of the Shofar organization said in a public appearance in Britain just 2 days before the attack on the US, that before the end of the Hebrew year (which was just 10 days away) a major war will emerge. A skeptic man in the crowd asked him how can he know this for certain. The Rabbi answered - "I am basing my words on Jewish writings throughout the centuries". 2 days later he proved to be right...

Gog and Magog begins in Tishrey

(Rabbi Daniel Zer SHLITA)
The rabbi "Hafetz-Hayim",is the author of the "Mishna Brura" (a commentary of the Shulhan Aruch, the book that summarizes Jewish Halacha), who lived at the beginning of the 20th century,

As it is known, in the holy festival of Succoth (Tishrey 15-22), according to Jewish Halacha, Jews in the synagogues read the Ezekiel 38 - the description of Gog and Magog war. The Haftarah is called "Gog" Haftarah. The Rabbi Hafetz Hayim, wrote in his commentary WHY this is what we read in Succoth:

Because in the time to come, the Gog and Magog war will start on Tishrey

And we all now that the war in Afghanistan broke on Tishrey 21st

Gog and Magog begins in Hosha-Na

(Rabbi Daniel Zer SHLITA)
The famous Rabbi called the ADMOR of Zejichov, who lived some 200 years ago, wrote in his book a commentary about Exodus 4,13. The rabbi asks, how come the word "NA" (which is translated in English to 'please') is written in the verse. And he writes:

Know this: Gog and Magog war will start at Hosha-Na Raba
And as he foresaw, the war broke EXACTLY at Tishrey 21st, which is Hosha-Na Raba.
