Osama bin Laden vowed Friday to fight Israel for the liberation of the Palestinians, claiming their cause is at the heart of al-Qaida's holy war with the West. "Sixty years ago, the Israeli state didn't exist. Instead, it was established on the land of Palestine raped by force," he said. "Israelis are occupying invaders whom we should fight." http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=4869061
On the above, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, zs'kl, wrote 2,000 years ago in the Zohar HaKadosh in Parshat VeYechi...
אמר רבי שמעון, זמינין אינון בני ראובן לאגחא תרין קרבין בגו ארעא כחי , וראשית אוני , יתר שאת , ויתר עז
The people who fight these wars are the sons of Reuven*; descendants of Reuven**. They will make 4 wars during certain periods of history but the last one will be excessively daring 'יתר עז' - and the last war will be during our period of time.
* This does not mean that they are Jewish because the descendants live in these areas for hundreds of years and during the long exile, lost their path and religion.
**As many may not know, the prevailing Taliban rulers are from the Pashtun Tribes of Afghanistan and some of them trace their lineage back to Reuven! In fact, they call themselves Bani Rabani (B'nei Reuven). (Thanks to Reb Judah HaKohain of HaMikdash for this info)
יתר עז : לזמנא דמלכא משיחא יתער בעלמא אינון יפקון ויגחון קרבין בעלמא וינצחון ויתתקפון
על עמממיא , ובני עלמא ידחלון קמייהו וירתתון מנייהו .
During the time that Moshiach will be revealed, they will go out and organize battles and wars thruout the world. Their wars will succeed and the nations of the worlds will fear them very much.
זמינין אינון לאגחא קרבא בארבע סטרי עלמא, ולמשלט בקרבייהו על כלא, וינצחון עממין סגיאין וישלטון עלייהו.
Their wars will not be in one or two positions like regular wars, rather it will be decisive and rough in all areas of the world. They will succeed in their wars and take control.
ויחשבו לאתגברא במלכותא...
The success of their gain thru their war against the nations of the world will cause them and the world to believe that they are controlling the world, but...
ולא ישתארון ביה, הדא הוא דכתיב פחז כמים אל תותר. מאי טעמא לא ישתארון ביה, ואפילו בסטרא חד דעלמא, בגין כי עלית משכבי אביך, דזמינין לאעלא ולאגחא קרבין בגו ארעא קדישא, משכבי אביך דייקא זו ירושלם.
In the end, their strength will dwindle and they will be extinguished from the world*, till not even one of them will live anywhere in the world.
*As is known, Al-Qaida is scattered thruout the world, in all continents. But in the end, the nations of the world will overpower them.
One may ask, how and why? What is the error that Al-Qaida will do that will cause them their downfall?.
The Zohar HaKadosh answers:
כי עלית משכבי אביך דא ירושלים
Al-Qaida will copy their wars to target Israel, specifically Yerushalayim. They will want to war against the Jews.
As long as Al-Quada fights against the nations of the worlds - the heretics - there's no problem. But the minute Al-Quada targets Israel and their agenda is specifically Yerushalayim... this is the beginning of their downfall.
People who think that Eretz Israel, the holy land, is just another 'state' like all countries around the world - and the holy land can be penetrated to fight against her and people can do to it as they please - this is the worst mistake and will cost them their lives.
ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות
Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds
