“It’s all about the Third Temple. Solomon’s Temple was first destroyed by the Babylonians, then rebuilt, and finally destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. So the goal all along has been to rebuild the Temple. It’s why it’s the central symbolism of Freemasonry. “Masonry” being rebuilding the Temple. Both symbolically, and ultimately, literally.
When the messiah returns, he’s supposed to build the Third Temple. Orthodox Jews don’t believe in accelerating that process, and believe it necessitates the presence of the messiah to fulfill. Chabad and other radical religious Zionists believe it needs to be done now. The problem is that the Third Temple has to be constructed on the Temple Mount, which is the site of al Aqsa mosque.
So they have been playing up Evangelical “Christian Zionists” on one side, and radical Muslims like ISIS on the other, who have diametrically opposed interpretations of the End Times. Both of them believe it ends with a confrontation against each other in Israel, and will hail the advent of the Messiah, who each camp thinks will be on their side.
These are Kabbalists. Because they follow the Book of Revelation like a script. And because Revelations “predicts” chaos prior to the arrival of the Messiah, they believe that sowing such chaos can hasten his arrival.”
The following is an excerpt from David’s forthcoming book, Ordo ab Chao: Mad Philosophers, Conspiracy and the End of the World
The Chabad Lubavitcher rebbe, Berel Lazar is the chief rabbi of Russia. Referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi,” he appears frequently at Putin’s side at public events, and is the leader of the Federation of Jewish Communities (known by its Russian acronym FEOR). Chabad members are a small fraction of Russia’s small Jewish community. Adolf Shayevech, a prominent figure in the Jewsh community since the late Soviet period, was considered chief rabbi until 2000, and still claims the title. The Russian Jewish Congress, the country’s largest secular Jewish organization, also recognizes Shayevech.
However, FEOR had received government support, which has restored dozens of synagogues and built Jewish community centers throughout the country. “Eighty percent of all synagogues, the rabbis are Chabad,” said Rabbi Alexander Boroda, the organization’s chief spokesman.i Jason Greenblatt, a former Trump Organization lawyer and now a special representative for international negotiations at the White House, met with Lazar in the summer of 2016.ii
At the 2006 International Conference of Shluchim, attended by Alan Dershowitz, Lazar told the story supposedly related to by Putin, that when he was a young child, he grew up in a very poor family, but his next neighbours who were Hassidic Jews were extremely kind to him. “He realized,” recounts Lazar that, “not only were they kind to a child that wasn’t Jewish, but they were kind to a child in a time and place when it was dangerous to do that.”
In a 2014 meeting with Lazar and chief rabbis from Israel, Europe and Russia, Putin said he “supports the struggle of Israel,” was noted as a “true friend” and ally of Benjamin Netanyahu, and pledged to combat anti-Semitism and “Holocaust denial” in Russia. During the meeting the Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel, Yitzhak Yosef, said of Putin’s rule in Russia: “according to the Jewish tradition, your leadership is decided by the kingdom of G-d, King of the world, and therefore we bless you: Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood.”iii
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, the spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, which is composed of right-wing Zionists, claimed that the American media, “tried to create a man-made reality in which Trump could not win. In the end, it did not work. Hashem is moving us towards a greater Jerusalem, and anyone who goes against that, is destined to fail.”
Rabbi Yosef Berger, who oversees the final resting place of King David on Mount Zion, told Breaking Israel News. “The gematria (numerology) of his name is Moshiach (Messiah). He is connected to the Messianic process which is happening right now. When he promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, he attached himself to the power of Moshiach, which gave him the boost he needed. If you separate from Jerusalem, disaster will follow.” Rabbi Berger added, “As the spiritual descendant of the Biblical nation of Edom, America has a very important role to play in the Messiah. But in order to be suited for that role, America had to be humbled.”iv
Orthodox scholars and rabbinic authorities generally believe that rebuilding of the Third Temple of Jerusalem, should occur in the era of the Messiah. The revived Sanhedrin contacted Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and Putin who expressed desire for the same, to join forces and fulfill their Biblically-mandated roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
The revived Sanhedrin, also known as the Nascent Sanhedrin, was established in 2004. It represents the sixth attempt in recent history, after Rabbi Jacob Berab in 1538, Rabbi Yisroel of Shklov in 1830, Rabbi Aharon Mendel haCohen in 1901, Rabbi Zvi Kovsker in 1940 and Rabbi Yehuda Leib Maimon in 1949. The Nascent Sanhedrin regards itself as a provisional body awaiting integration into the Israeli government as both a supreme court and an upper house of the Knesset, while the Israeli secular press regards it as an illegitimate fundamentalist organization of rabbis.
The current Nasi of the Sanhedrin is Chabad-Lubavitcher Adin Steinsaltz, who has been hailed by Time magazine as a “once-in-a-millennium scholar.”v Its long-term aims are to build the third Jewish temple on the Temple Mount. The most immediate and obvious obstacle to realization of these goals is the fact that two historic Islamic structures which are thirteen centuries old, namely the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, are built on top of the Temple Mount. Al Aqsa is the third holiest site in Sunni Islam. Muslims believe that Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to al-Aqsa during the Night Journey, known as the Isra and Mi’raj.
