The Pop Star Madonna has called out to God to help and correct the abuse of firearms in America. Once again over the past few days there have been new incidents of killings. Three people dead and 15 people injured at the Garlic festival shooting in Northern California on July 29. Two people killed at a Mississippi Walmart July 30 by a disgruntled employee, one of them a police officer. The shooting happened at 6:35 in the morning.
The Supreme Court struck down a lower court ruling 5-4 against President Trump declaration of an emergency on the border of Mexico. The ruling clears the way for Trump to redirect $2.5 billion from the Pentagon to build his long promised border wall. President Trump has faced opposition from Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer who have called the building of the wall a bluff and not a true solution at all. They claim that making the wall will not even dent crime in America.
President Trump’s decision to cancel the Nuclear Peace Treaty between America and Russia is a great stumbling block in the goal of uniting the whole world with democracy. However the decision to cancel the peace treaty may be temporarily a good decision because the peace treaty was made in 1986 before the downfall of the communist regime. Today the alliance of America and Russia as two free world countries is most important to World Unity and Peace. They can make a much better treaty to replace the old one.
On the 5th of the Jewish month of Av which falls out this year on August 8, 2019 is celebrated the memorial date of the Kabballist from the city of Zefat in the Galilee. People will come from all over the world to pray at his grave site in the Old Cemetary in Zefat on this day. Rabbi Yitchok Luria became famous even in the gentile world through the kabbala centers of Rabbi Philip Berg where in California the famous singer Madonna became interested in his teachings.
Madonna came out with a new video striking out against gun violence and in support for gun control.
Gun control is a controversial topic in American society. The Second Amendment of the American Constitution reads: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov writes in his most foremost work Likutei Maharon, “Each and every righteous saint is in the likeness of the Messiah.”
The Messiah of Freedom, the Messiah of Song, the Messiah of Peace are all from the same source. They are all one and connected to God. The Messiah is by definition a man, a human being. Like all people he comes into the world which is temporary with two maternal parents. The life of the Messiah is temporary seventy years, until 120 years according to the wishes of God.
Madonna arrived in Israel early this week to perform at the Eurovision Festival in Tel Aviv. After two back to back concerts, she wrapped her tour with a visit Thursday night to Safed tomb of the holy saint the Arizal. Many years ago she became interested in Kabbalah Jewish mysticism.
The Arizal Rabbi Isaac Luria lived in the city of Safed in the 1500s where he became famous as a teacher of Jewish Mysticism. Safed is located near the village of Meron where is buried Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai the author of the Zohar. The Zohar was discovered in Spain in the 13th Century and dates back to the period in Jewish history shortly after the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem about 70 CE.
