    "First,a large segment-almost certainly a substantial majority-of a highly significant Orthodox movement called Lubavitch,or Chabad, Hasidism affirms that the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who was laid to rest in June 1994, initiated the authentic messianic mission and will soon return to complete the redemption in his capacity as the messiah." Ref. "The Rebbe, the Jews and the Messiah" by David Berger,Commentary Magazine, 9,2001. After Rebbes death,city of New York offered psychological counceling to the Lubavitch community to help them cope with their fantasies and face realities. Can Kupat Holim offer similar counceling to Islamic Movement leader Sheik Ra'ad Salah and his followers before "soon arriving World Caliphat".Otherwise,we will"soon" face an Intifada III,Jihad for a world Caliphat with capital Al Quds.Consider "Freudan Slip" by Pope,and conclude that religions bring wars. Socialists and secular right(Ben Gurion,Haim Waitzman,Begin) created Israel!
