Government Will Become Prostitution

A reserve secular soldier, father of 2, wrote a letter explaining his frustrations...

Lately, I'm very worried about the future of Israel, and it only escalated during the Lebanon War II. I feel that as a young father, my children will not have a state in which to grow up in. I lost trust in the Government (not only this current government) and feel that the nation is in a state of total desperation.

The govenment-elected official's main focus is to continue to sit on their chair. They will do whatever possible to stay put in their chair even if it's not for the good of Israel. Politicians developed a mentality to ignore the nation, just as they did during Lebanon War II, Sderot, and the millions of poor people of the land. Every morning we wake up to new scandals and corruption and this only escalades the desperation and disbelief in the government. Instead of exterminating these manifestations, the politicians fight the state comptroller's report. The government calls for investigating the poor evaluation of the state comptroller's report and hire more people, but in reality, instead of solving the problems, they cheat the nation more.

One of the most frustrating things is that our PM still thinks we won the last war and attacks the Intelligence Branch that claim different, while the Hizballa doubles their weapons. The war gave the enemies confidence and major export of weapons are openly sent from Russia and Iran to Syria and the Hizballa.

I am convinced that a much worse war is going to start before the end of the summer. It will be a war in all fronts, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza. It's the fault of the deficient government. In the army, the soldiers developed a cynical saying when meeting each other on the street, 'see you at the war'.

Instead of the PM recognizing his faults and correcting it, he ignores and denies. This person is serving himself or the nation?

The education of the children has only worsened. The violence in schools have escalated and the achievements are poor. I don't blame the children for poor achievements. We all know that children do not become less intelligent with time, but they need a good education. But what does the Minister of Education do in this matter? Fights the world that history and geography books should be rewritten with 1967 border line. There are no other problems that she has time to rewrite books? If she would fight with half the energy for the benefit of our children and improve the educational system, our situation would have been a little better.

At this rate, in 10 years, we will all be chopping trees...

Over 25% of Israel residents are non-Jews. During the war, arab residents of Israel helped the Hizballa and we saw the results. In the next election or 2, an Arab will win the PM chair. I'm not even discussing that 50% of the national insurance budget goes only to them... Our government is ignoring this because they don't have a solution. If we continue ignoring it, we will not survive.
Where are we going to be in 20 years? How much more can the 'state' of Israel continue deteriorating?

End of letter.

This letter expresses what Chazal told us will happen in the days preceding the Geulah.
חוצפא יסגא, והיוקר יאמיר, הגפן תתן פריה, והיין ביוקר. מלכות תיהפך למינות – ואין תוכחת. בית ועד יהיה לזנות, והגליל ייחרב, והגולן יישום, ואנשי הגבול יסובבו מעיר לעיר, ולא יחוננו, וחכמת סופרים תסרח, ויראי חטא יימאסו, והאמת תהיה נעדרת. נערים פני זקנים ילבינו. זקנים יעמדו בפני קטנים. בן מנוול אב, בת קמה באמה, כלה בחמותה. אויבי איש אנשי ביתו. פני הדור כפני הכלב... הבן אינו מתבייש מאביו... ועל מה יש לנו להשען – על אבינו שבשמים!
Chutzpa will multiply
Costliness will increase
Grapevine will produce its grapes
And the wine will be expensive
The kingdom (government) will become heresy - and rebuke is lacking
The house of council (govenment) will become prostitution
And the Galilee will be destroyed
and Golan will be empty
And people of the borders will wander from city to city and won’t settle down
And the wisdom of scribes will putrefy
And those who fear sin will become repulsive
And the truth will be absent
Youths will insult the faces of elders
Elders will stand for the sake of youths
Son will deride father
Daughter will rise up against her mother, daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law
A man’s enemies will be members of his household
The face of the generation will be like the face of the dog
Sons not embarrassed in front of fathers
And on what do we have to lean?
On our Father in Heaven




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
