Isaac Luria: Mystic (1534–1572)

“Known as ha-Ari (The [Holy] Lion) and ha-Ashkenazi (The German – his family moved to the Middle East from Europe). Luria was one of the most influential men in the history of Jewish mysticism; his teachings shaped the thinking of generations of Kabbalists, triggered at least one messianic movement, and serve as intellectual foundation for much of Chasidism.

He taught an equally original form of ecstatic Kabbalah, centered on therapeutic “readings” of the spiritual condition of a soul and then offering spiritual direction. He also worked with dead souls. He would sleep on graves in order to commune with the dead spirits of Jewish saints buried there. His method of Yichudim, including a form of incubation, linked necromantic divination with his efforts to mend the cosmic imbalances in the universe. He furthered this effort by performing tikkun on impure spirits, exorcizing them and thereby returning them to the proper path toward the afterlife.

Huge numbers of stories and legends about his personality and his occult powers have been recorded. Some believed he was a reincarnation of Shimon Bar Yohai. He could make himself invisible to the spiritually immature. On the other hand, those with the right spiritual capacity saw that a pillar of fire, extending up to heaven, was constantly hovering over his head. Luria had the power of a sixth sense – he could immediately determine the spiritual state of a person by studying the lines on their forehead. He also had power over angels and made them do his bidding. He healed the sick and granted extended life.”

habeas corpus: A writ of habeas corpus is a court order to bring a person who’s been detained to court to determine whether or not their detention is valid. It’s a failsafe to prevent the government from imprisoning people without cause.

“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” ~ Balfour Declaration

Balfour Declaration – (November 2, 1917), statement of British support for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” It was made in a letter from Arthur James Balfour, the British foreign secretary, to Lionel Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild (of Tring), a leader of the Anglo-Jewish community. Though the precise meaning of the correspondence has been disputed, its statements were generally contradictory to both the Sykes-Picot Agreement (a secret convention between Britain and France) and the Ḥusayn-McMahon correspondence (an exchange of letters between the British high commissioner in Egypt, Sir Henry McMahon, and Ḥusayn ibn ʿAlī, then emir of Mecca), which in turn contradicted one another (see Palestine, World War I and after). ~ Britannica

2010 – The fight for peace

Adrian Wajsbrem: “Everyone, Jewish people around the world, and even non-Jews, who like the idea of Israel, and a Jewish Israel, and a Jewish Israel shared with other cultures and religions, should come here in peace, and not try and claim it, claim the land from the Jews.” (January, 2010)

October 2008:

“Jerusalem, the town of whoever’s here, it’s your town, ideally people that want peace – ‘piss’ – well you’ve gotta fight for peace, which means there’s always a war for peace.” (October, 2008)
