So What is Behind The Expulsions

According to Mozeman's Blues cupidity. Avarice. Greed. The worshiip of money.

I'm sickened. I think she has a valid point. Realize that those who lost thier homes, while getting compensation, are still paying off their mortgages (those who were renting do not receive any benefits) and her assessment makes clear a lot of issues that had been troubling me.

It brings to mind something I learned in this last weeks parsha; we enjoy the beauty and wealth of Israel when we keep the Torah. But when we worship false gods, and I see "Hollywood and gold" as false gods, we are invaded. G-d will never desert us, and this land will once again be ours forever, but how we punish ourselves with our denial of what G-d wants us to do.

Hmmmmm...boils down to the "Lord of the Manor" still being the slave master and we the chattel...the serfs and peons...totally at the mercy of the rich and powerful...for whatever reason, doesn't it? Oh well, new day acoming....on its way, and looks rather like sooner than later to be here...and a WHOLE NEW system then! It will be HaShem's people who will be in charge, under HIM then!! What a switch from this world, huh? Hubby and I sold the last house we were buying back in Dec. 1999...we just cannot get excited to buy another. Renting is not fun...but neither is loosing one's home under any circumstance....be it via gov't or via hurricane, or some scheme of one sort or another. Won't it be wonderful when Messiah comes??
