“And it happened, at the end of two years of days, that Pharaoh dreamed… And Pharaoh sent and called for Yoseph, and they rushed [Yoseph] out of the pit…” [41:1,14]
The end of Yoseph’s captivity came suddenly, after precisely two years “of days.” One day he was a convicted criminal, the next he was a desperately needed advisor to Pharaoh. The Medrash says, “an end is set for darkness.” When the end-time arrived, the change was immediate.
The Chofetz Chaim explains that whenever the time for something expires, whether for good or not, G-d does not wait a single minute beyond that set time. Because the time was up, they rushed Yoseph out of prison “with lightning speed.”
The Chofetz Chaim applies this to the concept of Israel’s final redemption: when the time comes, it will be immediate.

We are living in historic times. There are over Six Million Jews living in Israel now. In a few short years, the majority of Jews world wide will live in Israel. G-d is blessing Israel with oil and gas and the Arab gas supplies are in decline. Egypt Importing Gas for First Time as Exports Disappear ; Impact of Israeli gas field has been hugely underestimated, says …
With Israeli elections less than two months away, there remains no candidate who presents any real threat to Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu. In the background, however, are major candidates who are young, and are products of the “Facebook generation.” Their influence is very different to what we have seen from younger candidates in previous Israeli elections.
I am speaking of Moshe Feiglin, Danny Danon and Naftali Bennett who both have strong positions on Israeli security, not clouded by self depreciating liberal Jewish ideas. If they were liberals one could expect fawning editorials about them in American media outlets.
40-year old Israeli Naftali Bennett was born to American parents and was recently elected Chairman of the Jewish Home party (Ha-Bayit Ha-Yehudi). Current polls indicate that his party will emerge post election as the 3rdlargest political party in Israel.
Danny Danon undoubtedly is a leader of the “New Likud.” Danon is currently Deputy Speaker of the Knesset and head of World Likud, he is listed at number 9 on the joint Likud/Yisrael Beitenu list and is a likely Cabinet Member in the next Netanyahu government. He lived in America for a number of years while completing his Masters degree and visits the country regularly. He often appears in the media, has already written his first book, and regularly hosts visiting politicians to explain to them the true situation on the ground in Israel.
We must prepare ourselves for the Jewish revolution that is taking place in Israel. It is my hope that this new leadership from Israel, will inspire a change in the diaspora leadership.
