Yishmael Exile

A book written by HaRav Yechiel Weitzman (Hebrew) called "This Era" (Hatkufa). In the book, the author brings proof from the Torah of all current events.

The AriZal's student, Rabbi Chaim Vital, a'h, writes "The last exile is called the Yishmael Exile, and it's the most difficult. It's a Galut without solutions".

Israel tried doing peace with the arabs but it doesn't last. They continue to murder us and claim the Jews stole their land and we took their Mosques in Central Yerushalayim. If we give them Yerushalayim, they will continue claiming lies such as the Jews stole Haifa and Tel Aviv. It's an endless cyclone of difficulties. Parshat Haazinu talks about this, as it say "הם קנאוני בלא אל כעסוני בהבליהם" "They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; They have provoked me to anger with their vanities". "ואני אקניאם בלא עם" "And I will move them to jealousy with those that are not a people". HaShem will cause Israel to war with a non-nation. The Hizballa, Hamas, and Palestinians fit this category, they are all terrorist groups and are a non-nation. No matter what Israel will offer them, they will fight us more. There is very little possibility to stop a suicide bomber because they are willing to be a "jihad". As it says, "they are like bees" (sting and die).

Pirkei Rabbi Eliezer, Perek 30, says that Yishmael (God hears) was given this name because HaShem heard his mother's prayers. At the End of Days, Yishmael will cause Am Israel to scream and cry and HaShem will hear our prayers.

It says in the Mishna on this era that Moshiach Ben David will arrive when:
והגליל יחרב והגולן יישום ואנשי גבול יסובבו מעיר לעיר ולא יחוננו
The Galil will be destroyed, the Golan will be empty, and the border people (Gush Katif) will go from city to city and will not find rest.

HaRav HaMekubal Eliyahu Shlita (head of Mekubalim) said that all events are pointing to awaken us to pray and cry to HaShem.




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
