With all due respect for Chabad, I know they are doing a great job all around the world. Sometimes it's just time to get up and go. The hidden part of the Torah teaches us that Bavel (Iraq) will be a place where no person will be able to live there. Those days are now. Look at whats going on there. Killings all around on a daily bases. Where ever you turn...death is right near you. The Angel of Death rules in Bavel. This is because The Babilonians took us into exile. Hashem always pays back measure for measue. Read the Zohar...it tells you everything. Good luck Rabbi..May Hashem guide you back to the holy land.
