"Issues of World War III" Survey

"What's the solution to the drought?" This may be an issue not terribly understood by many people; the responses were significantly fewer than normal and a bit uncertain. Half called for building new water reservoirs (although one comment partly endorsed desalinating seawater); the other half were in the "other" category. Here was the most pertinent comment aside from the votes themselves:

Factual Background:
For the last couple of decades, voices of alarm have been steadily warning about an impending (or current) long-term drought. Southern California's relatively dry climate and large demand for water have spurred the most alarm bells for that region, but the same voices also insist the crisis is nationwide — and, oddly enough, worldwide.

Those voices, as it turns out, are environmentalist radicals. In their usual the-sky-is-falling, doom-and-gloom alarmism, they wish everyone to be filled with anxiety and despair over a world supposedly neglected by its Creator (G-d forbid!), in which (take your pick) (a) "global warming," (b) "overpopulation," or (c) "pollution" and "ecosystem destruction" are to blame for the ever-awaited drought. The solution, predictably, is always the dismantling and destruction of human civilization and its impact on the world, and the reduction of human populations themselves, all through programs supervised by the Communist-controlled United Nations.

G-d has several times made a joke of the environmentalists, sending wave upon wave of heavy rains precisely when their drought warnings became especially loud. At times, drought warnings have literally been issued in the news media at the very same time that floodwaters were washing away roads and homes; sometimes pre-written reports of "empty" reservoirs have been broadcast on the very same day in which water was reported to be coming over the tops of the dams!

But is there a drought? The answer is both yes and no.

In terms of rainfall, there is no drought. Rain levels have not changed from their average, neither worldwide nor in most regions (there are always some areas with temporary droughts or floods). California, for example, continues to receive its same average level of rain as it has since records have been kept many decades ago (each year varies, of course, but the rainfall hovers around the same average). Reports that California has not received "normal" rainfall in years are misleading; "normal" is not defined as the "average," but is rather some reworked number that is kept artificially higher than the average. So, automatically, California is generally under the "normal" levels simply by remaining at average rainfall.

Yet the levels of water in lakes and reservoirs around the western United States are clearly far below what they used to be. If rainfall is average and population hasn't grown that much (contrary to environmentalist propaganda), where has all the water gone?

The answer is that the environmentalists themselves took it away!

Yes, you read that correctly. For decades, environmentalist groups have assaulted the water supply system using the courts, suing to stop the construction of new dams and reservoirs to hold more water as the need grows. By 1982, legal actions had completely stopped all construction of new water supplies; since then, environmentalist legal cases, with the collaboration of leftist federal judges, have actually forced the reduction in existing water supplies. Concocting a bewildering variety of environmental "threats" and "crises," the eco-radicals have forced water districts to release perfectly good, drinkable water out of reservoirs into swampy marshlands, thus eliminating water for human use while multiplying mosquitoes, frogs, and cockroaches. To make the artificial "drought" permanent, environmental groups and lawyers have also succeeded at forcing the complete closure of many reservoirs, together with the destruction of the dams that guarded them.

As the water supply shrinks, environmentalists then brazenly turn around and use the "drought" as an excuse to push water-conservation measures by farmers (thus also attacking and undermining the nation's food supply) and by the urban residents who use the smallest portion of the water supply to begin with. The utter deliberateness of this whole lie has recently come to light as new technology begins to make desalination of seawater economically feasible. Faced with the possibility that water supplies might grow again, environmentalists panicked and lashed out to stop the seawater purification. When it was pointed out that no one could even imagine a "negative ecosystem impact" from desalination, environmentalists finally admitted that their only reason for opposing it was that new water supplies would make conservation unnecessary! In other words, environmentalists are determined to force conservation whether or not it is needed (and it is not) — even by destroying the water supply by any means necessary, without the slightest cover of a viable excuse.

Relevant Torah Principles:
1) The foundation of the Noahide Laws is the mission of developing the physical world. In line with this, the Torah clearly states that all natural resources were created exclusively for human use in building civilization. Any ideology that declares other, non-human needs (i.e., animals or eco-systems) can compete with human demand is a direct attack on Torah and G-d's Law.

2) In Jewish Law, it is forbidden to demolish buildings to make way for gardens, farmland, or parks, whereas the other direction is allowed and even encouraged (that is, to eliminate parks or gardens in favor of buildings). The reason is explicitly to encourage the development of the land of Israel. Since this is identical to the Noahide mission of developing the rest of the world, it also applies to gentiles. Higher degrees of human development of land must never give way to lesser degrees.

3) The Torah commandment against wanton destruction — that is, the unnecessary destruction of anything productive or useful — applies to gentiles as well (as taught by the Lubavitcher Rebbe). If dams and reservoirs have been built, for example, it is forbidden to destroy them unless it clearly assists the further building and expansion of human civilization. It goes without saying that no human construction may be destroyed for the purpose of reducing human development of land.

4) Two components make up human success: G-d's blessing (the spiritual element), and human building of intrastructure to capture and harness the blessing (the physical element). It is pointless merely to pray to the Creator for water supplies without building the reservoirs and transport systems to use the water. Torah instructs us not only to ask G-d for His blessing (such as rain), but also to build the vessels for holding it.

Analysis:
The point is obvious. Certainly the destruction of dams and the release of water into nature must be stopped immediately, and those dams which have already been destroyed must be rebuilt in their previous spots, specifically to erase the imprint of Amalek (i.e., environmentalism in this instance) from the world. And as the need for water grows, whether for urban residents, industry, or farmland, new dams, reservoirs, and canals must be built to accomodate the need. Exotic and expensive solutions, such as transporting icebergs or desalinating seawater, will probably be totally unnecessary for centuries to come.

And equally obviously, water conservation and its propaganda must be banned. The environmentalist organizations working to destroy civilization must be monitored, investigated, and infiltrated by undercover law enforcement authorities, and the groups must be banned and broken up. Federal funding for environmentalist groups must end and, if needed, be diverted to anti-environmentalist organizations that help counter eco-propaganda.

The environmentalists are pursuing a Marxist agenda. A society suffering famine, drought, or other economic crisis is unstable and weakened enough to allow anarchist, Communist revolution. So far we have been blessed by G-d to receive enough rain to compensate for environmentalist destruction of water-supply infrastructure, but if we do not become active in neutralizing environmentalist evil, we cannot count on G-d to continue showing such undeserved mercy. We've been given extra time; it's up to us to act while we still have the chance.

And now for this week's survey question:

The Bush Administration is criticizing Saudi Arabia for allowing money to flow to terrorists. How should Saudi Arabia be treated?

(1) As an ally needing assistance against its enemies.
(2) As an undemocratic regime that needs to be reformed.
(3) As a fanatic breeding ground of Wahabist radicals and terrorists — i.e., an enemy.
(4) Other

Subversion Alert

This week's profile:
Billy Jack Dial, Atlanta, GA

A gentile with some law-enforcement background, Billy Jack Dial claims to have become a "Noahide" (presumably meaning Hasidic Gentile). He runs an obscure web site and leads a small group of fellow "Noahides" in Atlanta.

While maintaining a certain official distance from the Root & Branch Organization (a subversive hub for infiltrating Judaism and the Noahide movement), Dial is nonetheless promoted by R & B. He also pretends to endorse the publications of Rabbi Marvin Antelman, who exposes the network of secret societies and Communist organizations that have infiltrated the Jewish world, but Dial cleverly twists and confuses Rabbi Antelman's message to the point of incomprehensibility — thereby luring Rabbi Antelman into trusting Dial while ensuring outsiders will not get the rabbi's true message.

Dial has notably promoted the phony "Sanhedrin" of recent origin on his website, and days ago he was selected by that same "Sanhedrin" to serve as one of only ten individuals on a select committee designed to co-opt and control all Hasidic Gentiles and Jewish activists in the Noahide campaign. It would seem odd that the obscure Dial would be chosen for such a prominent role, until one takes into account his ties to the R & B network.

Dial is clearly an agent for the enemies of the Jewish people (identified in prophecy as the "armies of Gog & Magog"). He either works directly for the Communist underground or for some intelligence agency infiltrated by Communist Bloc agents, such as the CIA.

Note: The underground Communist apparatus and its aboveground tentacles are actively engaged in subversion in all sectors and institutions of society today. Its agents would dearly love to know the full extent of our information, which would assist their disinformation efforts. Consequently, we do not divulge all our facts or sources. These profiles are intended only as a warning to the wise to monitor the individuals and groups exposed here, and to avoid their influence.


THE HALL OF SHAME…
Have Some Chabad Shluchim Betrayed Their Rebbe?

This week's example:
Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Greenberg, Yeshiva Tiferes Menachem, Brooklyn, NY

A JAHG-USA volunteer showed Rabbi Greenberg our Proclamation (which lists the Torah rules requiring everyone to get involved with JAHG-USA's PLO-defunding campaign) last May 27th. The rabbi refused to sign, but couldn't come up with any objection other than to say the wording was "roo rough" (whatever that's supposed to mean, since it directly quotes halachic sources of Torah). With the new wave of former "refusenik" rabbis recently changing their minds and now endorsing the anti-PLO campaign, we thought we'd give Rabbi Greenberg another chance. On January 7th we approached him again; this time he not only refused, but became almost hysterical in attacking me personally (though I wasn't present). He was furious that we publicly name the "refuseniks" who don't sign (if he were being honest, he should proudly advertise being a "refusenik"!), and seeing he couldn't find anything wrong with the Proclamation according to Torah, he tried to say that our campaign nevertheless goes against the alleged style of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. When our volunteer wouldn't concede this point, he turned angrily and stormed away.

Rabbi Greenberg's cowardice is tragic. He was my teacher in yeshiva, and when I opened his eyes to the importance the Lubavitcher Rebbe placed on the Noahide campaign, Rabbi Greenberg became my boldest, most outspoken advocate amongst Lubavitchers. But as subversive agents mounted an increasingly loud counter-campaign to smear me, Rabbi Greenberg weakened (while still defending me), then started caving in, and ultimately joined the voices attacking me and our work. By the time the JAHG-USA PLO-defunding campaign was just getting started, Greenberg had already degenerated to the point of insisting that the Lubavitcher Rebbe did not want anyone but the Israeli government getting involved in saving lives from PLO terrorism — a bizarre claim openly opposite the plain facts of the Rebbe's published statements. Rabbi Greenberg knew better, but at that point he was visibly becoming a nervous wreck and could hardly maintain a normal conversation anymore.

Rabbi Greenberg will someday have to find his manhood and stand up to the people he knows very well are liars. And the subversive agents ruining the Jewish community will have to pay the ultimate price (according to Torah prophecy, Jews who collaborate with the enemy and betray their fellow Jews during World War III will ultimately be murdered by their masters). The more other people join with our campaign, the sooner the smoke will clear and evil will flee in every direction.

Terrorism Update:
Here are some more PLO terror attacks and related actions, funded by the U.S. taxpayer, that took place this last week:
  • A terrorist apparently with Islamic Jihad (a Communist-run group that closely coordinates its activities with the PLO) attacked Israeli soldiers with a suicide bombing on Thursday. None of the soliders was injured, although the terrorist died. A fellow terrorist charged at the soldiers while firing a gun, and was also killed.
  • Islamic Jihad and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (an armed wing of Fatah, the PLO's main group) jointly fired eight Kassam rockets from the Gaza Strip into the rest of Israel Friday night. (Arutz-Sheva, typically, did not identify the groups involved, leaving the false impression that Arabs in general were somehow involved.)
  • Stones were thrown at a bus in the West Bank Saturday night, damaging the vehicle.
  • Terrorists fired at Israel troops in the West Bank. None of the soldiers was hurt, while they killed two of their attackers.
  • Two terrorists were caught throwing stones and Molotov cocktails (petroleum firebombs) at cars on a highway.
  • Terrorists were intercepted while trying to place bombs at the Gaza Strip border.
  • Gunmen fired at Israeli soldiers at three different checkpoints on Sunday, but missed in all cases.
  • More Kassam rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip in the direction of Ashkelon, a city outside the Gaza. Two other Kassam missiles landed in fields without hitting anything.
  • An activist with the PLO's Palestinian Authority (PA) attacked a police officer, apparently by throwing punches. The officer was slightly injured, and the PA terrorist was arrested.
  • Monday night, a firebomb was thrown at an Israeli army vehicle but missed.
  • Today (Tuesday) a Hamas terrorist fired machine guns at Israeli soldiers who came to arrest him. One soldier was injured and the terrorist was killed. (Hamas is funded by the PLO and works closely with it.)
  • Also today, another Kassam rocket was fired from Gaza into an Israeli town.
  • Evidence was found of new underground tunnels for smuggling Soviet weapons and explosives from Egypt to the PLO. The tunnels run underneath the Gaza-Egypt border.

This week's casualty count: 2 people injured and two vehicles damaged (not counting dead terrorists).

The open collaboration between the PLO's PA and other terrorist groups angered the U.S. Congress last month. The numbers are now available: The House of Representatives voted a whopping 397 to 17 to recommend cutting U.S. aid to the PLO (a resolution, not an actual funding bill), and 73 of the 100 Senators signed a letter with similar sentiments. So what's stopping the overwhelming majority of Congress from defunding the PLO? President Bush is the interfering factor; he and his cabinet (especially Condoleeza Rice) are fighting to keep PLO funding at the highest possible levels.

Not much pressure would be needed to give Congress the backbone it needs to override President Bush and stop PLO funding. As seen by the lopsided results last month, the votes are already there to do so. But you have to get involved to make the difference. Contact us to volunteer your time or resources.

…AND THE HALL OF FAME
Some Chabad Shluchim Are Helping the JAHG-USA Campaign

This week's examples:
Rabbi Yaacov Osdoba, Hadar HaTorah Yeshiva, Brooklyn, NY; and
Rabbi Hershel Lustig, Oholei Torah Yeshiva, Brooklyn, NY

The wave of "refusenik" defectors who are now signing the Proclamation is growing.

Rabbi Osdoba was re-approached with the Proclamation on January 11th, one week ago. He mentioned that he was impressed by the hundreds of rabbis now endorsing the campaign (in contrast with when we first asked the rabbi months ago). On the list of endorsers was now Rabbi Osdoba's father, Rabbi Avrohom Osdoba, head of the official Jewish court for Crown Heights, the headquarters of the Lubavitch movement. So the younger Rabbi Osdoba changed his mind and signed on. I know him personally, as he was my Talmud teacher in yeshiva (Hadar HaTorah is for Jewish adults returning to the religion, rather than boys who grow up in the community), and therefore Rabbi Osdoba likewise knows very well whose campaign he is endorsing. Rabbi Greenberg, who also taught me in yeshiva, now has no excuse (nor does Rabbi Goldberg, Rabbi Osdoba's boss at Hadar HaTorah, who likewise excuses himself from the campaign by slandering me personally).

Rabbi Lustig was also re-approached on January 11th. His former refusal from months ago easily changed into an endorsement upon seeing the large list of other endorsers, including Rabbi Lustig's fellow teachers and staff at Oholei Torah, a major boys' yeshiva in Crown Heights. Rabbi Lustig is the principal of the yeshiva's elementary division. While I don't know him personally, his endorsement was an explicit change of mind now that hundreds of other rabbis are on board, and so Rabbi Lustig now sends a powerful message that there was never any reason not to participate in our PLO-defunding campaign.
