(From Dan Willens) A few months ago, my friend in Israel sent me this comment about rain in Israel. He gave me permission to share his comments, provided that he remains anonymous. I hope that this is an appropriate comment here, and does not offend anyone.

As its written, there are no angels over the rains in Israel, rain here comes under the direct control of Hashem.  When we act, even beyond with the noise hole / mouth, against the evil muslims, He shows His approval in this way.  It was the same under Ariel Sharon.  For years there was only minimal rainfall, But as Sharon was sitting with his cabinet discussing finally an appropriate response to muslim butchery, at the time they were discussing a response, the rains began and didn't stop until the wimp government stopped defending Jews in the only way muslims appreciate.

Winter is here: Israel hit by thunder, lightning and floods

Yes, Israel having much more rain than in years, even if not as described by the lefty ynet - "hit by" .... NO, that generality and negative term "hit by" is not truthful and not factual.

1. More rain now than in many years, and

2. Why are there locations in Israel where the rains are "rains of favor, rains of blessing", and other places where indeed "hit by" is accurate?

Only a bit of research will disclose that in places like "Sdom and Gamara North" ( some say Tel Aviv ) the rains are far more in quantity, and in intensity, than would be termed "rains of blessing, rains of favor".

In such places as "Sdom and Gamara North" the rains are indeed "hit by". Yet in other places the rains are quite the opposite, see for yourself. And do remember that meteorologically speaking, Israel is very tiny, so uniform rains would be expected. More than the above, why now, why not for other past years? What is different today?

Today and the years leading up to todays situation can be meaningfully compared to the years of Ariel Sharon being the chief in politics in Israel. During his time, there was year after year of minimal rain fall. Then as Ariel was sitting with his cabinet discussing what military tactics to use to finally, finally, finally act against the musloids, then the rains began and continued until Ariel et al stopped treating musloids as we need, need, need to treat them. Then the rains stopped. Compare that to our present situation, up until this present year, during Bibi's time as chief in politics, also minimal rain. But now, acting as we should against "Bibi's beloved", rains a-plenty, even if rains of favor where needed, and rains of being "hit by" where that is appropriate, e.g. "Sdom and Gamara North". The fake war 4 years ago against Aza-zel, didn't impress Hashem nor any non-brain dead Sabra.

Why is it like this? As written, there are no angels over the rains in Israel, these are under the direct control of Hashem. If anyone can give a more meaningful answer, I'd certainly like to hear it.

One of my goals on the internet is to
remind people about things they forgot.

The world has almost completely forgotten
From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters,
so my desire is to remind people about it,
and the important facts that it contains:


In 1958, former director of UNRWA
Ralph Galloway declared angrily while in Jordan:

“The Arab states do not want to solve
the [Palestinian] refugee problem.

They want to keep it as an open sore,
as an affront to the United Nations,
and as a weapon against Israel.

Arab leaders do not give a damn
whether Arab refugees live or die.”

SOURCE: From Time Immemorial:
The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict
over Palestine
(chapter 2, page 23)
by Joan Peters, year 1984, JKAP Publications


“One crucial truth, among the many
which have been obscured or deprecated,
is that there have been as many Jewish
refugees who fled or were expelled
from the Arab countries [in year 1948]
as there were Arab refugees from Israel,
and that the Jews left of necessity
and in flight from danger.”

SOURCE: From Time Immemorial:
The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict
over Palestine
(chapter 2, page 25)
by Joan Peters, 1984, JKAP Publications


Hitler’s crimes against the Jews
have been frequently justified in
Arab writings and pronouncements.

In the 1950s, Minister Anwar Sadat
published an open letter to Hitler,
hoping he was still alive
and sympathizing with his cause.

Important Arab writers and political
figures have said Hitler was
“wronged and slandered…”

Or that Hitler wanted to “save …
the world from this malignant evil…”
