When someone's total focus is on fulfilling the will of the Creator, he will be free from all worries and anxieties. He constantly fulfills the will of the Creator with sublime ecstasy and joy. A wise person makes this his life-goal.
This is such a powerful message that it is worth rereading over and over again. Integrating this into our consciousness is life-transforming. Print this out and put it in a place where you will remember to read it daily for at least one week.
When things seem hopeless, this is especially the time to remember that Just as G-d took Joseph out of the prison that he was in for 12 years and then made him King in an instant, G-d can solve our problems in an instant when the time is right for our problems to be solved. However, as we know, G-d helps those that help themselves.

The Most Dangerous Form of Holocaust Denial By Moshe Feiglin - 29 Nisan 5777 – April 25, 2017
once gave a lift to a young woman who was a guide at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. "Na'ama," I asked her, "What do you answer when your groups ask you about the meaning of the Holocaust?"
"That everyone has a small Nazi inside them," she answered automatically. "Anybody can be a Nazi."
I almost lost control of the car.
"Listen," I said to her. "I do not have any little Nazi inside me. I am the good guy in this story. And the Germans were the bad guys. Forget about the ridiculous blather that all those involved in the Holocaust were victims. That both the murderers and the slaughtered were hapless wretches. There were good people there, and those were the Jews. And there were bad people – and those were the Germans."
'"If what you told me now is the message of Yad Vashem", I continued, "then Yad Vashem is the most sophisticated institution in the world for Holocaust denial. Why? Because it denies the meaning of the Holocaust. It is a very important institution for recording and passing down the memory of the Holocaust. But its message is completely wrong."
Any person can become an animal – including a Jew. But saying that it could happen to anyone is essentially Holocaust denial. It could happen to anyone. Coincidentally, it happened to the Germans. Coincidentally, the Jews just happened to be passing through the wrong place at the wrong time. This application of "coincidence" and the falsity that everyone is essentially a victim is the most sophisticated and dangerous Holocaust denial that exists.
From there, it is only a short distance to the claim that the Jews are the new Nazis. Today, in London, Paris and the world's intellectual hubs, the Jews are the new Nazis. This is the axis: First, it can happen to anyone. Seventy years ago it happened to the Germans, now it is happening to the Jews. Beware of this false narrative.
An article by Daniel Greenfield - PLEASE, PLEASE READ.
My sentiments exactly. I have warned in numerous published articles of mine that the Two State Solution equals the Final Solution. Daniel Greenfield expresses the same truth.
Yom HaShoah comes and goes. A day for looking back at what has happened and a day for looking away from what will happen.
Millions of dollars have been spent building memorials to the victims of the Holocaust, even as Iran is spending its millions on building another kind of memorial to the Holocaust, in the form of nuclear technology that will be used to finish that piece of history that the Islamic terror state claims never took place.
Millions more are spent, by some of the same groups that claim an interest in Holocaust education, on bringing Muslim migrants to America and Europe to carry out the promise of an Islamic apocalypse in which, as the Hadith states, "The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him." That is what the Islamic Holocaust looks like. And it's underway.
A Jew is murdered in France. Another in Jerusalem. And another and another.
The Final Solution, with its immediate extermination of the Jews, has been replaced by the Two State Solution, an intermediate process in which the land on which Jews can live in security is partitioned into smaller and smaller pieces.
The Lebensraum of Islam demands ever more breathing room. And fewer breathing Jews. Israel is carved up into smaller indefensible ghettos. The number of places where the world decides that Jews can be allowed to live, shrink. The rest become "settlers" who must be evicted for the sake of peace. Even if the place they're "settling" is Jerusalem. The oldest Jewish city on earth.
And this Two State Solution, this intermediate process, has the almost universal backing of the major Jewish organizations who are so very deeply concerned about the Holocaust. It has the backing of the diplomats and politicians who put out canned statements urging that we learn the lessons of the Holocaust. The only lesson they have learned though is that another Holocaust needs better marketing.
It is comparatively easy to build a memorial. You hire the architect, raise the money, buy the land and then cut the ribbon. It is a much harder thing to do something about the need for those memorials in the first place. That is what learning the lessons of the Holocaust is about.
It is easier to build another memorial than to look into your heart and ask why two generations later, the majority of the American Jewish community was still too cowardly to stand up to a liberal icon in the White House ... when the lives of millions of Jews were on the line.
From FDR to Obama, American Jewish leaders had two opportunities to stand up to a liberal icon and save Jewish lives. No amount of memorials can disguise the fact that they learned nothing.
The reassurances from American Jewish leaders that Obama meant well, that he will not sell out Israel and that he cares sounded familiar. The American Jewish leaders of the 30's and 40's echoed the same sentiments. Even as the St. Louis was turned back and its passengers were sent to the gas chambers, even as every effort made to aid or save Jews from the Holocaust was frustrated and shut down with the active complicity of the liberal American Jewish leadership who were loyal to FDR.
The same people who let millions die went on to light candles and issue their hypocritical sanctimonious statements of mourning for the dead. More candles have been lit. More memorials have been built. But the lessons of the Holocaust continue to go unlearned.
Regardless of which administration is in office, the Two State Solution and any support for the Islamic terrorists seeking to exterminate the Jews, as they have already exterminated many of the Christians in the region, must be fought. When we fail to do this, then whatever our politics are, we abandon our obligations to the dead and to the living.
The most important lesson of the Holocaust is that the details of how it happened don't really matter. Had Hitler not come to power, had Germany not turned National Socialist, the Holocaust would have happened anyway. Stalin had one planned too before his death. Had it not been Hitler or Stalin, it would have been someone else. It still might be.
The Holocaust did not happen because of intolerance or fascism, as most liberals would like you to believe. It happened for the same overriding reason that any person or group of people is murdered. Because the Jews lacked the means of defending themselves against it.
There have been two Jewish responses to the Holocaust, on the one hand promoting tolerance and assimilation and on the other hand the State of Israel. Tolerance has done nothing to prevent the hatred and murder of Jews. In many cases it has actually served to promote it.
Every Muslim attack in Europe and America can be laid at the door of tolerance. When a Jewish woman is thrown out of a window in Paris or a Rabbi is beaten in Brussels, the true perpetrator is "tolerance".
The State of Israel stands as the only meaningful response to the Holocaust. Rather than building stone memorials and going back to business as usual, the State of Israel is not only a living future for the Jewish people, it is a response to the fundamental lesson of the Holocaust. The Holocaust happened because it could happen to a people who couldn't defend themselves. The State of Israel with its armies and borders was the best physical defense against it happening again.
Today the two responses to the Holocaust are battling out to the death, Tolerance and Assimilation vs the State of Israel. And the State of Israel is getting the worst of it. The teachers of tolerance blame Israel for the failure of their own ideology, manifest in the rising hatred of Jews around the world. If Israel wouldn't exist, somehow Jews wouldn't be hated, their thesis goes. As if anti-Semitism had been discovered lying around in a dustbin sometime after 1948.
But it is tolerance meanwhile that is killing Israel. The left has pushed Israel to the wall, because it represents the inversion of their ideology, it represents the reality that the best hope of the persecuted is not in multiculturalism or in tolerance classes, but in taking responsibility for their own safety and survival.
Netanyahu: Allies could have saved 4 million Jews if they'd bombed death camps in 1942 In bitter Holocaust Remembrance Day speech citing new UN documents, PM castigates global indifference 75 years ago, says it persists today
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday launched a blistering assault on Allied policy during World War II, saying world powers' failure to bomb the Nazi concentration camps from 1942 cost the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.
Citing recently released UN documents that show the Allies were aware of the scale of the Holocaust in 1942, some two years earlier than previously assumed, Netanyahu said in a speech marking Holocaust Remembrance Day that this new research assumed "a terrible significance."
"If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved 4 million Jews and millions of other people," he said at the official state ceremony marking the start of the memorial day.
"The powers knew, and they did not act," he told the audience at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.
"When terrible crimes were being committed against the Jews, when our brothers and sisters were being sent to the furnaces," he went on, "the powers knew and did not act."

In a bleak and bitter address, the Israeli prime minister said that the Holocaust was enabled by three factors: the vast hatred of the Jews, global indifference to the horrors, and "the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora."
Anti-Semitism had not disappeared, and "it would be naive to think" that it would do so in the foreseeable future, he said. It was being exacerbated by "hatred from the East," led by Iran and the Islamic State, he added.
The speech marked a sharp contrast from that of President Reuven Rivlin, who spoke just before Netanyahu, and cautioned against seeing anti-Semitism where it does not exist.

Global indifference persisted, too, Netanyahu said, as evidenced by the horrors in Biafra, Cambodia, Rwanda, Sudan and Syria. One "ray of light," he noted, was US President Donald Trump's determined response to Syrian President Bashar Assad's gassing of his own people.

What had changed, though, was that the Jewish nation now has a strong Israel to protect it. "The weak do not have much chance of survival," he said. "The strong survive; the weak are wiped out…our people learned this in the Holocaust."
The lesson for Israel, he said, "is that we have to be able to defend ourselves, by ourselves, against any threat, against any enemy."
He warned that "those who seek to kill us put themselves in the line of fire."
That stance, he said, was "not a provocation or an exaggeration; it's the only way to truly ensure our future."
And that imperative, Netanyahu stressed, "is the prime obligation… of all Israeli prime ministers."
Missouri has no illegals; go figure... shouldn't the other states do the same? Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegals in Missouri to demonstrate.
The "Show Me" state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done.
In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri . In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri . No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.
In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.
In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.
In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri 's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .
In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States .
So, while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.
