3-3-`12 - DREAM OF MIKKI -  I was driving a car with my husband Paul and Arnie running alongisde.  Arnie was piggy=-back on Paul.  They had no problem keeping up with me.

We went  to a place where a group of Greco-Egyptians were going around givinng shots to peope and animals that made them 'FROZEN IN TIME",which menat they were no longer alive - they were acutally zombies with no emotions - but could continue walking around doing what they were told.  The animals were also like this after they got their shots so that the lion culd lay down with the lamb as the Bible says, and people no longer had any problems because they no longer needed to eat nor did they get sick.  Even cancer seemed cured because it went into remission as the people were really dead.

I even saw large rhinoceeroses standing there and  I was able to walk up to them and pat them because theyw ere so docile.

The people started building a new temple which had a CUBE in the center, and glass walls, however, the temple walls were hidden by woven shawls with secrets woven into them made of rough off white thread with dark blue, and purple woven into them.  Nobody could read the secrets because the shawls woven together in spirals which they used to hide the  walls of the tmple.  There were statues of stone woman laid out in front of the temple which had not yet been stood up and would stand around the walls of the temple with their shawls on - with their arms outstretched like one sees in King Tut's tomb. There would be two stone women per panel of wall.

Next to the temple on the right side was a round tower with a minaret on top of it.

At the end of the dreamk, the men who were giving the shots were trying to give them to us,, but one had to agree to it or they couldn't give you the shots.  The dreams ended as a whole group of men were coming at us with hypodermic needles.



I was in a town square somewhere and I saw a lot of silver coins on the ground so I picked them up and put them in my pockets.

Some men in brown suits and hats like out of the last century came around me and suddenly Mikki was next to me to protect me.  She gave me a shot of something in case they tried to inject me with something (I saw one of them with a hypodermic needle)  She check me physically to make sure I was okay, then hypnotized me to protect me from their proposed onslaught.

The men in the brown suits then withdrew like a tsunami.  It seemed like there was 100 of them. 

The men next to me filled my pockets with cigarettes, and then the horde of nasty ugly men in the brown suits came marching towards me and all I had to do was stand my ground and keep saying mentally, "You can't come near me"  and when they got close enough I started spitting bits of tobacco off the end of my tongue at them.  They taunted me about where the tobacco was landing but they couldn't get within three feet of me.

I started waking up and kept repeating, "You can't come near me" until I couldn't see them anymore.

Mikki was by my side the whole time and I knew I'd be okay.

NOTE:  Early in the morning, Mikki called me on the phone and we started discussing dreams, and she said she had a bad one about a mob of men coming towards her and I informed her   I was next to you and they were coming towards me and you saved my life.

We didn't get to continue the conversation because her husband called her on the phone and she had to go, but obviously this was not a dream, it was an astral experience and the bigger question is "Who were those men and why are they mad at me?"





Ezekiel 40

The Temple Area Restored
1 In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the city—on that very day the hand of the LORD was on me and he took me there. 2 In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city. 3 He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. 4 The man said to me, “Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.”

The East Gate to the Outer Court

5 I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six long cubits,[a] each of which was a cubit and a handbreadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high.

6 Then he went to the east gate. He climbed its steps and measured the threshold of the gate; it was one rod deep. 7 The alcoves for the guards were one rod long and one rod wide, and the projecting walls between the alcoves were five cubits[b] thick. And the threshold of the gate next to the portico facing the temple was one rod deep.

8 Then he measured the portico of the gateway; 9 it[c] was eight cubits[d] deep and its jambs were two cubits[e] thick. The portico of the gateway faced the temple.

10 Inside the east gate were three alcoves on each side; the three had the same measurements, and the faces of the projecting walls on each side had the same measurements. 11 Then he measured the width of the entrance of the gateway; it was ten cubits and its length was thirteen cubits.[f] 12 In front of each alcove was a wall one cubit high, and the alcoves were six cubits square. 13 Then he measured the gateway from the top of the rear wall of one alcove to the top of the opposite one; the distance was twenty-five cubits[g] from one parapet opening to the opposite one. 14 He measured along the faces of the projecting walls all around the inside of the gateway—sixty cubits.[h] The measurement was up to the portico[i] facing the courtyard.[j] 15 The distance from the entrance of the gateway to the far end of its portico was fifty cubits.[k] 16 The alcoves and the projecting walls inside the gateway were surmounted by narrow parapet openings all around, as was the portico; the openings all around faced inward. The faces of the projecting walls were decorated with palm trees.

The Outer Court

17 Then he brought me into the outer court. There I saw some rooms and a pavement that had been constructed all around the court; there were thirty rooms along the pavement. 18 It abutted the sides of the gateways and was as wide as they were long; this was the lower pavement. 19 Then he measured the distance from the inside of the lower gateway to the outside of the inner court; it was a hundred cubits[l] on the east side as well as on the north.

The North Gate

20 Then he measured the length and width of the north gate, leading into the outer court. 21 Its alcoves—three on each side—its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as those of the first gateway. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 22 Its openings, its portico and its palm tree decorations had the same measurements as those of the gate facing east. Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them. 23 There was a gate to the inner court facing the north gate, just as there was on the east. He measured from one gate to the opposite one; it was a hundred cubits.

The South Gate

24 Then he led me to the south side and I saw the south gate. He measured its jambs and its portico, and they had the same measurements as the others. 25 The gateway and its portico had narrow openings all around, like the openings of the others. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 26 Seven steps led up to it, with its portico opposite them; it had palm tree decorations on the faces of the projecting walls on each side. 27 The inner court also had a gate facing south, and he measured from this gate to the outer gate on the south side; it was a hundred cubits.

The Gates to the Inner Court

28 Then he brought me into the inner court through the south gate, and he measured the south gate; it had the same measurements as the others. 29 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 30 (The porticoes of the gateways around the inner court were twenty-five cubits wide and five cubits deep.) 31 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated its jambs, and eight steps led up to it.

32 Then he brought me to the inner court on the east side, and he measured the gateway; it had the same measurements as the others. 33 Its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico had the same measurements as the others. The gateway and its portico had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 34 Its portico faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it.

35 Then he brought me to the north gate and measured it. It had the same measurements as the others, 36 as did its alcoves, its projecting walls and its portico, and it had openings all around. It was fifty cubits long and twenty-five cubits wide. 37 Its portico[m] faced the outer court; palm trees decorated the jambs on either side, and eight steps led up to it.

The Rooms for Preparing Sacrifices

38 A room with a doorway was by the portico in each of the inner gateways, where the burnt offerings were washed. 39 In the portico of the gateway were two tables on each side, on which the burnt offerings, sin offerings[n] and guilt offerings were slaughtered. 40 By the outside wall of the portico of the gateway, near the steps at the entrance of the north gateway were two tables, and on the other side of the steps were two tables. 41 So there were four tables on one side of the gateway and four on the other—eight tables in all—on which the sacrifices were slaughtered. 42 There were also four tables of dressed stone for the burnt offerings, each a cubit and a half long, a cubit and a half wide and a cubit high.[o] On them were placed the utensils for slaughtering the burnt offerings and the other sacrifices. 43 And double-pronged hooks, each a handbreadth[p] long, were attached to the wall all around. The tables were for the flesh of the offerings.

The Rooms for the Priests

44 Outside the inner gate, within the inner court, were two rooms, one[q] at the side of the north gate and facing south, and another at the side of the south[r] gate and facing north. 45 He said to me, “The room facing south is for the priests who guard the temple, 46 and the room facing north is for the priests who guard the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, who are the only Levites who may draw near to the LORD to minister before him.”

47 Then he measured the court: It was square—a hundred cubits long and a hundred cubits wide. And the altar was in front of the temple.

The New Temple
48 He brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the jambs of the portico; they were five cubits wide on either side. The width of the entrance was fourteen cubits[s] and its projecting walls were[t] three cubits[u] wide on either side. 49 The portico was twenty cubits[v] wide, and twelve[w] cubits[x] from front to back. It was reached by a flight of stairs,[y] and there were pillars on each side of the jambs.
  1. Ezekiel 40:5 That is, about 11 feet or about 3.2 meters; also in verse 12. The long cubit of about 21 inches or about 53 centimeters is the basic unit of measurement of length throughout chapters 40–48.

At first, I thought the 3rd temple would be built on

the Temple Mount, but Israelis are building one in

Mitzpe Yericho.


Will end time wonders ever cease?

I also would have thought they would have called this the “School for the Cohanim (priests) and Levites for service.” But they are calling it the Third Temple.

Jews in the town of Mitzpe Yericho are taking practical steps to prepare for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem, by preparing descendents of Cohanim (priests) and Levites for service.

At the Mitzpe Yericho school, Temple priest hopefuls learn exactly how to conduct the daily Temple service and offer the required sacrifices.

The school will include an exact replica of the Temple, so hence there is a 3rd temple now.

“Today is really a historical event for the Jewish people,” organizer Levi Chazan said as another part of the school was completed. “It is the beginning of the work for the Third Temple.”


The timing of the work on the school is particularly appropriate due to recent Muslim riots against Jewish visits to the Temple Mount,

Baruch Marzel said. Marzel is a long-time Land of Israel activist and parliamentary aide to MK Michael Ben-Ari.



The Third Temple, or Ezekiel's Temple (Hebrew Beit ha Mikdash hashalisi בית המקדש השלישי), is a temple architecturally described in the Book of Ezekiel. It is noted by Ezekiel as an eternal edifice and permanent dwelling place of the God of Israel on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The initial text discussing the Third Temple is written in the Book of Ezekiel chapter 40, where, on the day of Yom Kippur of the Hebrew calender 3372, Ezekiel prophesies the third temple architecture as well as envisioning the permanent entrance of the God of Israel through the Eastern gate of the third temple wall.[clarification needed]

[edit] Architecture

The architecture of the temple is described in detail in Chapters 40 to 42 of Ezekiel. Maimonides quantified those chapters as complex for the common reader and even for the seasoned scholar. Bible commentators who have ventured into explaining the design detail directly from the Hebrew Bible text include Rashi, David Kimhi, Yom-Tov Lipmann Heller, and Meir Leibush ben Yehiel Michal – all producing slightly varying sketches of the temple envisioned by Ezekiel.

[edit] In Jewish prayer

The Third Temple is also portrayed as a religious notion and desire in Judaism rooted and expressed in many of Judaism's prayers for the return and rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem that had once stood as the First and Second Temples that were destroyed by the ancient Babylonians and the Romans.

Since the destruction of the Second Temple in AD 70, religious Jews have expressed their desire to see the building of a Third Temple on the Temple Mount. Prayer for this is a formal part of the Jewish tradition of thrice daily Amidah prayer. Though it remains unbuilt, the notion of and desire for a Third Temple is sacred in Judaism, particularly Orthodox Judaism, and anticipated as a soon to be built place of worship. The prophets in the Tanakh called for its construction to be fulfilled prior to, or in tandem with, the Messianic age.[citation needed] The rebuilding of the Third Temple also plays a major role in some interpretations of Christian eschatology.

Architectural plans for the third Temple exist most notably in Chapters 40–47 of the Book of Ezekiel (Ezekiel's vision pre-dates the Second Temple) and some scholars entertain the notion that the Temple Scroll also describes the Third Temple.[citation needed]

Since a number of Jewish scholars have stated that the deadline for the arrival of the Jewish Messiah is the Jewish Year 6000 (2240 CE), this would also seem to be a deadline for beginning the construction of the Third Temple.[citation needed]

General views

Orthodox Judaism/a> believes in the rebuilding of a Third Temple and the resumption of sacrificial worship, although there is disagreement about how rebuilding should take place. Orthodox scholars and rabbinic authorities generally believe that rebuilding should occur in the era of the Jewish Messiah at the hand of Divine Providence, although a minority position, following the opinion of Maimonides, holds that Jews should endeavour to rebuild the temple themselves, whenever possible.[1] Orthodox authorities generally predict the resumption of the complete traditional system of sacrifices, but Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist authorities disavow all belief in the resumption of Korban. This belief is embedded in Orthodox Jewish prayer services. Three times a day, Orthodox Jews pray the Amidah, which contains prayers for the Temple's restoration and for sacrificial worship's resumption, and every day there is a recitation of the order of the day's sacrifices and the psalms the Levites would have sung that day.

The generally accepted position among Orthodox Jews is that the full order of the sacrifices will be resumed upon the building of the Temple. Although Maimonides wrote in his early work "A Guide for the Perplexed" "that God deliberately has moved Jews away from sacrifices towards prayer, as prayer is a higher form of worship,", however his definitive book "Mishneh Torah" - which is considered by some to be the final authority on Jewish law - states that animal sacrifices will resume in the third temple, and details how they will be carried out. Some[who?] attribute to Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook the view that animal sacrifices will not be reinstituted. These views on the Temple service are sometimes misconstrued (for example, in Olat Re'ayah, commenting on the prophecy of Malachi ("Then the grain-offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to God as in the days of old and as in former years" [Malachi 3:4]), he indicates that only grain offerings will be offered in the reinstated Temple service, while in a related essay from Otzarot Hare'ayah he suggests otherwise).

[edit] Role in prayer

Orthodox Jewish prayers include, in every prayer service and at the times when corresponding sacrifices would have been offered in the Temple, a prayer for the its reconstruction and resumption of sacrifices. The morning prayer service also includes a study session of the daily Temple ritual and offerings as a reminder, including detailed study of the animal sacrifices and incense offerings. The service also contains the daily and special-occasion psalms the Levites used to sing in the Temple. Following the weekday Torah reading there is a prayer to "restore the House of our lives and to cause the Shekhinah (Divine Presence) to dwell among us", and the Amidah contains prayers for acceptance of "the fire-offerings of Israel" and ends with a meditation for the restoration of the Temple. ("And may the grain-offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasing, as in former days and ancient times" (Malachi 3:4). In addition, the theological and poetic language of Hebrew is filled with words with dual connotations, which are both literal references to elements of Temple architecture or ritual, and also have metaphorical theological and poetic meanings regarding the relationship between the worshipper and God. Translations and commentary on prayers with this language tend to discuss both meanings in Orthodox Judaism. (Examples of dual-meaning words: deshen refers to both the ashes left after a burnt-offering, and also means "acceptance with favor"; kodesh refers to "the Holy", i.e. the Sanctuary portion of the Temple, and also means "holy" generally; and chatzrot refers to the courtyards of the Temple, and also connotes nearness to God; "korban" means both "sacrifice" and "drawing near".)

[edit] Preservation of rules of tumah

The Temple had elaborate rules of ritual purity forbidding entry to people with tumah, ritual impurity, arising from contact with the dead, seminal emissions and menstrual blood, contact with non-kosher (unclean) animals, certain diseases, and a number of other sources. While many of the original purification ceremonies involved (such as the Red Heifer ceremony) became impossible in the absence of the Temple and its rites, Rabbinic Judaism, and later Orthodox Judaism, considered Jews obligated to observe such laws of ritual purity as are possible, and retained a large number of the rules as principles for ordinary life. The laws of "family purity" are directly based, in function and terminology, on the Temple rules. A number of other requirements, such as the practices of immersing in a mikveh before Yom Kippur, washing the hands in the morning, before meals, and after a funeral, derive from these principles. Many contemporary and seemingly unconnected rules for ordinary living are intimately linked with these Temple rituals and rules. For example, the Shema Yisrael prayer is said at the time of day when Kohanim who were tamei completed a portion of their purification ritual, and the kind of plant material that can be put on the roof of a contemporary Sukkah is the kind that is not susceptible to tumah. In addition, authorities who permit Jews to ascend the Temple Mount require observance of a larger set of ritual purity rules than have been retained in daily life, such as a requirement of immersion following a seminal emission.

[edit] Attempts to re-establish a Jewish Presence on the Temple Mount

In August 1967 after Israel's capture of the Mount, Rabbi Shlomo Goren the chief rabbi of the IDF (and later chief rabbi of the State of Israel) began organizing public prayer for Jews on the Temple Mount. Rabbi Goren was also well known for his controversial positions concerning Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. On August 15, 1967, shortly after the Six-Day War, Goren led a group of fifty Jews onto the Temple Mount, where, fighting off protesting Muslim guards and Israeli police, they defiantly held a prayer service.[2] Goren continued to pray for many years in the Makhkame building overlooking the Temple Mount where he conducted yearly High Holiday services. His call for the establishment of a synagogue on the Temple Mount has subsequently been reiterated by his brother-in-law the Chief Rabbi of Haifa, She'ar Yashuv Cohen.

Goren was sharply criticized by the Israeli Defense Ministry, who, noting Goren's senior rank, called his behaviour inappropriate. The episode led the Chief Rabbis of the time to restate the accepted laws of Judaism that no Jews were allowed on the mount due to issues of ritual impurity. The secular authorities welcomed this ruling as it preserved the status quo with the Waqf, the Islamic authority. Disagreeing with his colleagues, Goren continually maintained that Jews were not only permitted, but commanded, to ascend and pray on the mount.

Goren repeatedly advocated or supported building a Third Temple on the Temple Mount from the 1960s onward, and was associated with various messianic projects involving the site. In the summer of 1983, Goren and several other rabbis joined Rabbi Yehuda Getz, who worked for the Religious Affairs Ministry at the Western Wall, in touring a chamber underneath the mount that Getz had excavated, where the two claimed to have seen the Ark of the Covenant. The tunnel was shortly discovered and resulted in a massive brawl between young Jews and Arabs in the area. The tunnel was quickly sealed with concrete by Israeli police.[3] The sealed entrance can be seen from the Western Wall Tunnel, which opened to the public in 1996.

The Chief Rabbis of Israel, Isser Yehuda Unterman and Yitzhak Nissim, together with other leading rabbis, asserted that "For generations we have warned against and refrained from entering any part of the Temple Mount."[4] A recent study of this rabbinical ruling suggests that it was both "unprecedented" and possibly prompted by governmental pressure on the rabbis, as well as "brilliant" in preventing Muslim-Jewish friction on the Mount.[5] Rabbinical consensus in the Religious Zionist stream of Orthodox Judaism continue to hold that it is forbidden for Jews to enter any part of the Temple Mount[6] and in January 2005 a declaration was signed confirming the 1967 decision.[7]

[edit] Role in Conservative Judaism

Conservative Judaism believes in a Messiah and in a rebuilt Temple, but does not believe in the restoration of sacrifices. Accordingly, Conservative Judaism's Committee on Jewish Law and Standards has modified the prayers. Conservative prayerbooks call for the restoration of Temple, but do not ask for resumption of sacrifices. The Orthodox study session on sacrifices in the daily morning service has been replaced with the Talmudic passages teaching that deeds of loving-kindness now atone for sin.

In the daily Amidah prayer, the central prayer in Jewish services, the petitions to accept the "fire offerings of Israel" and "the grain-offering of Judah and Jerusalem" (Malachi 3:4) are removed. In the special Mussaf Amidah prayer said on Shabbat and Jewish holidays, the Hebrew phrase na'ase ve'nakriv (we will present and sacrifice) is modified to read to asu ve'hikrivu (they presented and sacrificed), implying that sacrifices are a thing of the past. The prayer for the restoration of "the House of our lives" and the Shekhinah to dwell "among us" in the weekday Torah reading service is retained in Conservative prayer books, although not all Conservative services say it. In Conservative prayer books, words and phrases that have dual meaning, referring to both Temple features and theological or poetic concepts, are generally retained. Translations and commentaries, however, generally refer to the poetic or theological meanings only. Conservative Judaism also takes an intermediate position on Kohanim and Levites, preserving patrilineal tribal descent and some aspects of their roles, but lifting restrictions on whom Kohanim are permitted to marry.

In 2006, the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards adapted a series of responsa on the subject of the role of Niddah in Conservative Judaism, in which it discussed Conservative Judaism's view of the role of Temple-related concepts of ritual purity in contemporary Judaism. One responsum adopted by a majority of the Committee held that concepts of ritual purity relevant to entry into the Temple are no longer applicable to contemporary Judaism and accepted a proposal to change the term "family purity" to "family holiness" and to explain the continuing observance of niddah on a different basis from continuity with Temple practices.[8][9] Another responsum, also adopted by a majority of the Committee, called for retaining existing observances, terminology, and rationale, and held that these Temple-related observances and concepts continued to have contemporary impact and meaning.[10] Thus, consistent with Conservative Judaism's philosophy of pluralism, both views of the continuing relevance of Temple-related concepts of ritual purity are permissible Conservative views.

[edit] Role in Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism

Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism do not believe in the rebuilding of a central Temple or a restoration of Temple sacrifices or worship. They regard the Temple and sacrificial era as a period of a more primitive form of ritual which Judaism (in their view) has evolved out of and should not return to. They also believe a special role for Kohanim and Levites represents a caste system incompatible with modern principles of egalitarianism, and do not preserve these roles. Furthermore, there is a Reform view that the shul or synagogue is a modern Temple; hence, "Temple" appears in numerous congregation names in Reform Judaism. Indeed, the re-designation of the synagogue as "temple" was one of the hallmarks of early Reform in 19th century Germany, when Berlin was declared the new Jerusalem, and Reform Jewry sought to demonstrate their staunch German nationalism. The Anti-Zionism that characterized Reform Judaism throughout much of its history subsided somewhat with the Holocaust in Europe and the later successes of the modern state of Israel. The belief in the return of the Jews to the Temple in Jerusalem is not part of mainstream Reform Judaism.

[edit] Ancient attempts at rebuilding

[edit] Bar Kochba revolt

The forces of Shimon ben Kosiba, more commonly known as Simon bar Kokhba, captured Jerusalem from the Romans in AD 132, and construction of a new temple began, as well as renewed temple services. The failure of this revolt led to the writing of the Mishna, as the religious leaders believed that the next attempt to rebuild the temple might be centuries away and memory of the practices and ceremonies would otherwise be lost.

[edit] Julian

There was an aborted project by the Roman emperor Julian (361363) to allow the Jews to build a "Third Temple", part of Julian's empire-wide program of restoring/strengthening local religious cults. Rabbi Hilkiyah, one of the leading rabbis of the time, spurned Julian's money, arguing that gentiles should play no part in the rebuilding of the temple.[citation needed]

According to various sources of that time, including Sozomen (c. 400–450) in his Historia Ecclesiastica and the pagan historian and close friend of Julian, Ammianus Marcellinus,[11] the project of rebuilding the temple was aborted because each time the workers were trying to build the temple, using the existing substructure, they were burned by terrible flames coming from inside the earth and an earthquake negated what work was made:

Julian thought to rebuild at an extravagant expense the proud Temple once at Jerusalem, and committed this task to Alypius of Antioch. Alypius set vigorously to work, and was seconded by the governor of the province; when fearful balls of fire, breaking out near the foundations, continued their attacks, till the workmen, after repeated scorchings, could approach no more: and he gave up the attempt.

The failure to rebuild the Temple has been ascribed to the Galilee earthquake of 363, and to the Jews' ambivalence about the project. Sabotage is a possibility, as is an accidental fire. Divine intervention was the common view among Christian historians of the time.[13] Shortly thereafter, Julian was killed in battle, and the Christians reasserted control over the empire.

[edit] Medieval attempts at rebuilding

[edit] Sassanid vassal state

In 610, the Sassanid Empire drove the Byzantine Empire out of the Middle East, giving the Jews control of Jerusalem for the first time in centuries. The new rulers soon ordered the restart of animal sacrifice for the first time since the time of Bar Kochba. Shortly, before the Byzantines took the area back, the Persians gave control to the Christian population, who tore down the partly built edifice,[14] which is what it was when the Caliph Omar took the city in the 630s.

[edit] Muslim conquest of Syria

An Armenian chronicle from the 7th Century CE, written by the bishop Sebeos, states that the Jews and Arabs were quarreling amongst each other about their differences of religion during the Siege of Jerusalem in 637 CE but "a man of the sons of Ishmael named Muhammad" gave a "sermon of the Way of Truth, supposedly at God's command" to them saying that they, both the Jews and the Arabs, should unite under the banner of their father Abraham and enter the Holy Land.[15] The scholar Robert Wright in his book The Evolution of God says that the Jews began to rebuild their Temple on the Mount but were chased away.[16]

[edit] During the Mongol raids into Syria

In 1267, during the Mongol raids into Syria, an interregnum period between the complete domination of Palestine by the Crusader states until 1260 and the conquest of Palestine by the Mamluks in 1291, Nahmanides wrote a letter to his son. It contained the following references to the land and the Temple:

What shall I say of this land ... The more holy the place the greater the desolation. Jerusalem is the most desolate of all ... There are about 2,000 inhabitants ... but there are no Jews, "for after the arrival of the Tartars, the Jews fled, and some were killed by the sword. There are now only two brothers, dyers, who buy their dyes from the government. At their place a quorum of worshippers meets on the Sabbath, and we encourage them, and found a ruined house, built on pillars, with a beautiful dome, and made it into a synagogue ... People regularly come to Jerusalem, men and women from Damascus and from Aleppo and from all parts of the country, to see the Temple and weep over it. And may He who deemed us worthy to see Jerusalem in her ruins, grant us to see her rebuilt and restored, and the honor of the Divine Presence returned.

[edit] Modern rebuilding efforts

Although in mainstream Orthodox Judaism the rebuilding of the Temple is generally left to the coming of the Jewish Messiah and to Divine Providence, a number of organizations, generally representing a small minority of even Orthodox Jews, have been formed with the objective of realizing the immediate construction of a Third Temple in present times. These organizations include:

[edit] Organizations

The Temple Institute and the Temple Mount and Eretz Yisrael Faithful Movement each state that its goal is to build the Third Temple on the Temple Mount (Mount Moriah). The Temple Institute has already made several items to be used in the Third Temple.

[edit] Obstacles

The most immediate and obvious obstacle to realization of these goals is the fact that two historic Islamic structures which are 13 centuries old, namely the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, are built on top of the Temple Mount. The Dome of the Rock is regarded as occupying the actual space where the Temple once stood, and Israel has undertaken to preserve access to these buildings as part of international obligations. Any efforts to damage or reduce access to these sites, or to build Jewish structures within, between, beneath, beside, cantilevered on top of, or instead of them, would lead to severe international conflicts, given the association of the Muslim world with these holy places. However, some 20th and 21st century scholars believe that the Dome of the Rock is not the actual location of the First and Second Temples, and that the Temples were actually located either just north of or just south of the Dome of the Rock.[17] The most recent theory would put the temple in between The Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque.[17]

In addition, most Jewish-Orthodox scholars reject any attempts to build the Temple before the coming of Messiah. This is because there are many doubts as to the exact location in which it is required to be built. For example, while measurements are given in cubits, there exists a controversy whether this unit of measurement equals approximately 1.5 feet (0.46 m) or 2 feet (0.61 m).[citation needed] Without exact knowledge of the size of a cubit, the altar could not be built. Indeed, the Talmud recounts that the building of the second Temple was only possible under the direct prophetic guidance of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. Without valid prophetic revelation, it would be impossible to rebuild the Temple, even if the mosques no longer occupied its location.

Despite obstacles, efforts are under-way by various analytical groups to articulate the benefits to local and regional constituents and participants to encourage developments that would progressively align in support. It is known from the Talmud[18] that in the time of King Agrippa Jerusalem was filled with millions of visitors, pilgrims from the entire region. Today the potential of spiritual tourism would support the growth goals of the Mayor of Jerusalem[19] for 10 million annual tourists. This would provide a significant boost to the economy and would benefit people locally and regionally, many of whom live in poverty.[20] Since the ultimate building of the Temple can come only through a process of peace,[21] it must be proceeded by numerous efforts, including the financial and project infrastructures to support such a large increase in tourism, local and regional co-operation agreements to enable its ultimate construction and the success of modern attempts to revive the Sanhedrin, the authority required to be empowered for such an event to occur.

[edit] Status of Temple Mount

Israel currently restricts access by Jews to the Temple Mount on both religious and political grounds. Many religious authorities, including the Chief Rabbinate, interpret halakha (Jewish law) as prohibiting entering the area to prevent inadvertently entering and desecrating forbidden areas (such as the Kadosh Kadoshim), as the Temple area is regarded as still retaining its full sanctity and restrictions. Moreover, political authorities, concerned about past violent clashes at the Temple Mount including one which inaugurated the Palestinian Intifada, seek to reduce the likelihood of further violent confrontations between Jewish religious activists and Muslims worshipping at the mosques, which could further damage the area's delicate archeological and political fabric.[22]

During the Sukkot festival in 2006 Uri Ariel, a National Union member of the Knesset, ascended the Mount [1] and said that he is preparing a plan where a synagogue will be built on the Mount. His suggested synagogue won't be built instead of the mosques but in a separate area in accordance with rulings of the prominent rabbis. He said he believed that this will be correcting an historical injustice and that it is an opportunity for the Muslim world to prove that it is tolerant to all faiths.

[edit] Christian views

While there are a number of differing views amongst Christianity with regard to the significance or the requirement of a third temple being built in Jerusalem, according to the writers of the New Testament the New Covenant (spoken of in Jeremiah 31:31-34) is marked by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer (Ezekiel 36:26-27) and that, as such, the body is the temple, or that the temple has been superseded. Paul illustrates this concept in his letter to the believers at Corinth:

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? (1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV)

This idea is related to the belief that Christ himself, having claimed to be and do what the temple was and did, is the new temple (John 2:19), and that his people, as a part of the "body of Christ" (meaning the church), are part of this temple as well (2 Corinthians 6:16; Ephesians 2:19–22; 1 Peter 2:4–5). The result, according to N. T. Wright, is that the earthly temple (along with the city of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel) is no longer of any spiritual significance:

[Paul] refers to the church, and indeed to individual Christians, as the ‘temple of the living God’ (1 Cor. 3:16, 6:19). To Western Christians, thinking anachronistically of the temple as simply the Jewish equivalent of a cathedral, the image is simply one metaphor among many and without much apparent significance. For a first-century Jew, however, the Temple had an enormous significance; as a result, when Paul uses such an image within twenty-five years of the Crucifixion (with the actual temple still standing), it is a striking index of the immense change that has taken place in his thought. The Temple had been superseded by the Church. If this is so for the Temple, and in Romans 4 for the Land, then it must a fortiori be the case for Jerusalem, which formed the concentric circle in between those two in the normal Jewish worldview.[23]

In the teaching of both Jesus and Paul, then, according to Wright,

God’s house in Jerusalem was meant to be a ‘place of prayer for all the nations’ (Isaiah 56:7; Mark 11:17); but God would now achieve this through the new temple, which was Jesus himself and his people.[23]

Ben F. Meyer, also, argued that Jesus applied prophecy regarding Zion and temple to himself and his followers:

[Jesus] affirmed the prophecies of salvation with their end-time imagery Zion and the temple—belonging to the eschatological themes that the "pilgrimage of the peoples" evoked. But contrary to the common expectation of his contemporaries, Jesus expected the destruction of the temple in the coming eschatological ordeal (Mark 13:2=Matt 24:2=Luke 21:6). The combination seems contradictory. How could he simultaneously predict the ruin of the temple in the ordeal and affirm the end-time fulfilment of promise and prophecy on Zion and temple? The paradox is irresolvable until one takes note of another trait of Jesus' words on the imagery of Zion and temple, namely, the consistent application to his own disciples of Zion- and temple-imagery: the city on the mountain (Matt 5:14; cf. Thomas, 32), the cosmic rock (Matt 16:18; cf. John 1:42), the new sanctuary (Mark 14:58; Matt 26:61). The mass of promise and prophecy will come to fulfilment in this eschatological and messianic circle of believers.[24]

Some would therefore see the need for a third temple as being diminished, redundant, or entirely foreclosed, while others take a position that the building of the third temple is an integral part of end-time prophecy. The various perspectives on the significance of the building of a third temple within Christianity are therefore generally linked to a number of factors including: the level of literal or spiritual interpretation applied to what is taken to be "end-time" prophecy; the perceived relationships between various scriptures such as Daniel, the Olivet discourse, 2 Thessalonians and Ezekiel (amongst others); whether or not a dual-covenant is considered to be in place; and whether Old Testament promises of the restoration of Israel remain unfulfilled or have all come true in the Messiah (2 Corinthians 1:20). Such factors determine, for example, whether Daniel 9:27 or 2 Thessalonians 2:4 are read as referring to a still-future physically restored third temple.

A number of these perspectives are illustrated below.

[edit] Protestant

[edit] Mainstream

The dominant view within Protestant Christianity is that animal sacrifices within the Temple were a foreshadowing of the sacrifice Jesus made for the sins of the world through his crucifixion and shedding of his blood on the first day of Passover.[25] The Epistle to the Hebrews is often cited in support of this view: the temple sacrifices are described as being imperfect, since they require repeating (ch. 10:1–4), and as belonging to a covenant that was "becoming obsolete and growing old" and was "ready to vanish away" (ch. 8:13, ESV). See also Abrogation of Old Covenant laws. Christ's crucifixion, being a sacrifice which dealt with sin once and for all, negated any need for further animal sacrifice. Christ himself is compared to the High Priest who was always standing and performing rituals and sacrifices. Christ, however, having performed his sacrifice, "sat down" — perfection having been finally attained (ch. 10:11–14,18). Further, the veil or curtain to the Holy of Holies is seen as having been torn asunder at the crucifixion – figuratively in connection with this theology (Ch 10:19–21), and literally according to the Gospel of Matthew (ch 27:50–51). For these reasons, a third temple, whose partial purpose would be the re-institution of animal sacrifices, is seen as unnecessary.

Additionally Jesus himself stated when asked where to worship, "neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem... But in spirit and in truth". He stated of the Herodian temple, "Not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down" – John 4:21, Luke 21:6.

[edit] Dispensationalist

Those Protestants who do believe in the importance of a future rebuilt temple (viz., some dispensationalists/a>) hold that the importance of the sacrificial system shifts to a Memorial of the Cross, given the text of Ezekiel Chapters 39 and following (in addition to Millennial references to the Temple in other Old Testament passages); since Ezekiel explains at length the construction and nature of the Millennial temple, in which Jews will once again hold the priesthood; some others hold that perhaps it was not completely eliminated with Jesus' sacrifice for sin, but is a ceremonial object lesson for confession and forgiveness (somewhat like water baptism and Communion are today); and that such animal sacrifices would still be appropriate for ritual cleansing and for acts of celebration and thanksgiving toward God. Some dispensationalists believe this will be the case with the Second Coming of Christ when Jesus reigns over earth from the city of New Jerusalem.[specify] interprets a passage in the Book of Daniel, Daniel 12:11, as a prophecy that the end of this age will occur shortly after sacrifices are ended in the newly rebuilt temple.[citation needed]

[edit] Dispensational Evangelical

Many Evangelical Christians believe that New Testament prophecies associated with the Jewish Temple, such as Matthew 24-25 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, were not completely fulfilled during the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 (a belief of Full Preterism) and that these prophecies refer to a future temple. This view is a core part of Dispensationalism, an interpretative framework of the Bible that stresses Biblical literalism and asserts that the Jews remain God's chosen people. According to Dispensationalist theologians, such as Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye, the Third Temple will be rebuilt when the Anti-Christ, often identified as the political leader of a trans-national alliance such as the European Union or the United Nations, secures a peace treaty between the modern nation of Israel and its Muslim neighbours following a war in which Russia and the United States are destroyed or crippled as the result of a nuclear war and/or the Rapture. The Anti-Christ later uses the temple as a venue for proclaiming himself as God and the long-awaited Messiah, demanding worship from humanity.[26]

[edit] Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox

Catholic and Orthodox Christians believe that the Eucharist, which they hold to be one in substance with the one self-sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, is a far superior offering when compared with the merely preparatory temple sacrifices, as explained in the Epistle to the Hebrews. They also believe that Christ Himself is the New Temple, as spoken of in the Book of Revelation and that Revelation can best be understood as the Eucharist, heaven on earth. Their church buildings are meant to model Solomon's Temple, with the Tabernacle, containing the Eucharist, being considered the new "Holy of Holies." Therefore they do not attach any significance to a possible future rebuilding of the Jerusalem Temple.

The Orthodox also quote[citation needed] Daniel 9:27 ("... he will put a stop to sacrifice and oblation ...") to show that the sacrifices would stop with the arrival of the Messiah, and mention that according to Jesus, St. Paul and the Holy Fathers, the temple will only be rebuilt in the times of the Antichrist. (Quotations: Matthew 24:15, "'So when you see the appalling abomination, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, set up in the holy place (let the reader understand),"; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4: "Never let anyone deceive you in any way. It cannot happen until the Great Revolt has taken place and there has appeared the wicked One, the lost One, the Enemy, who raises himself above every so-called God or object of worship to enthrone himself in God's sanctuary and flaunts the claim that he is God.".)

[edit] Hal Lindsey

According to American fundamentalist Protestant author Hal Lindsey, the Third Temple could be built right next to the Dome of the Rock.[27] He believes, based on the theory of Dr. Asher Kaufman regarding the location of the Eastern Gate, that the Dome of the Rock was built on what the Bible refers to as the Court of the Gentiles. He states that according to Revelation 11:1-2, the rebuilding of the Third Temple was not to include the section of the temple mount known as The Court of the Gentiles. Therefore, he believes that the Third Temple and the Dome of the Rock could stand side by side.

[edit] Latter Day Saints

Latter Day Saints believe that the Jews will build the Third Temple and after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Jews will accept Jesus as the Messiah and most Jews will convert to Mormonism. Then, it is believed, the Third Temple will become an LDS Temple and will be one of the two most important LDS Temples along with the New Jerusalem Temple that it is believed will be constructed on the Temple Lot in Independence, Missouri, United States. The Jerusalem Temple will function as the resurrected Jesus Christ's Eastern Hemisphere headquarters, and the New Jerusalem Temple in Independence, Missouri will function as the resurrected Jesus Christ's Western Hemisphere headquarters. Both of these two temples will have thrones for Jesus Christ to sit on during his millennial reign.[28]

[edit] Muslim view

As previously mentioned, most Muslims view the movement for the building of a Third Temple on the Temple Mount as an affront to Islam due to the presence of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in the stead of the former Holy Temple. Today the area is regarded by the majority of Muslims as the third holiest site in Islam. Furthermore, despite lack of any mention of the site in the Qur'an, the mosque and the shrine have been on the mountain for a greater quantity of time than the Temples were.[29] There are also traces in the literature found in ancient Spain that this belonged to Muslims as it was their first Kibla(Direction of Prayers) before Propher Moahammad was given a divine message of changing it to Maccah Mukarama(Mecca)[citation needed] Thus, Muslims are resolute in calling for recognition of their exclusive rights over the site and demand that it be wholly transferred over to Muslim sovereignty; furthermore, some Muslims deny any association with the Mount to the former Jewish Temples which stood at the site.[30][31] Calls for violent reaction against any presence of non-Muslims on the site have often been made by Muslim authorities since East Jerusalem was occupied during the six days war.[citation needed]

[edit] Bahá'í view

In the Bahá'í view the prophecy of the Third Temple was fulfilled with the writing of the Súriy-i-Haykal by Bahá'u'lláh in pentacle form.[32] The Súriy-i-Haykal or Tablet of the Temple, is a composite work which consists of a tablet followed by five messages addressed to world leaders; shortly after its completion, Bahá'u'lláh instructed the tablet be written in the form of a pentacle, symbolizing the human temple and added to it the conclusion:[33]

Thus have We built the Temple with the hands of power and might, could ye but know it. This is the Temple promised unto you in the Book. Draw ye nigh unto it. This is that which profiteth you, could ye but comprehend it. Be fair, O peoples of the earth! Which is preferable, this, or a temple which is built of clay? Set your faces towards it. Thus have ye been commanded by God, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.[34]

Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith, explained that this verse refers to the prophecy in the Hebrew Bible where Zechariah had promised the rebuilding of the Temple in the End Times as fulfilled in the return of the Manifestation of God, Bahá'u'lláh, in a human temple.[33][35] Throughout the tablet, Bahá'u'lláh addresses the Temple (himself) and explains the glory which is invested in it allowing all the nations of the world to find redemption.[32][36] In the tablet, Bahá'u'lláh states that the Manifestation of God is a pure mirror that reflects the sovereignty of God and manifests God's beauty and grandeur to mankind.[32] In essence, Bahá'u'lláh explains that the Manifestation of God is a "Living Temple" and Bahá'u'lláh addresses the organs and limbs of the human body and bids each to focus on God and not the earthly world.[32]

Ezekiel's Detailed Vision of the Future (Ezekiel 40)



Fourteen years have passed since Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed (verse 1). But beginning with chapter 40, Ezekiel relates a vision of a future temple, city and nation, which must have given hope to those in captivity. Indeed, with the Jerusalem temple in ashes, Ezekiel does not only say there will be a new one.

He gives extraordinary details of a coming temple complex and a new arrangement of the Holy Land that was quite different than what they knew from the past.This no doubt gave those who heard it great confidence in the truth of it—for how could Ezekiel have come up with all this on his own?

Some have argued for a historical fulfillment of this passage, either through the reconstructed temple by Zerubbabel after the ancient Jewish return from Babylonian captivity or through Herod's later expansion on this second temple. Others see the prophecy as an allegorical representation of God's spiritual temple, His Church. And there are other ideas. The Expositor's Bible Commentary has this to say on the matter:

"These chapters have been interpreted as referring to Solomon's temple, the temple of Zerubabbel (either real or proposed), Herod's temple, or a future temple in the Millennium or in the eternal state. Some, having difficulty understanding the passage when taken literally, interpret the section allegorically as teaching about the church and its earthly blessings and glories, while others understand the passage to symbolize the reality of the heavenly temple where Christ ministers today.

"The historical fulfillments do not fit the details of the passage. The temples of Solomon, Zerubbabel, or Herod do not share the design and dimensions of the temple described in Ezekiel 40-42. The worship procedure set forth in chapters 43-46, though Mosaic in nature, has not been followed in history in exactly the manner described in these chapters. The river that flows forth from the temple in 47:1-12 has never flowed from any of the three historical temples mentioned above. The only comparisons to this river are seen in Genesis 2:8-14 and Revelation 22:1-2 (cf. Isa 35:6-7; Joel 3:18; Zech 14:8). The geographical dimensions and tribal allotments of the land are certainly not feasible today, nor have they ever been followed in times past. Geographical changes will be necessary prior to the fulfillment of chapters 45, 47-48 [of Ezekiel]. Therefore one would not look to historical (past or present) fulfillments of these chapters but to the future.

"The figurative or 'spiritualizing' interpretative approach does not seem to solve any of the problems of Ezekiel 40-48; it tends to create new ones. When the interpreter abandons a normal [literal interpretation] because the passage does not seem to make sense taken that way and opts for an interpretative procedure by which he can allegorize, symbolize, or 'spiritualize,' the interpretations become subjective. Different aspects of a passage mean whatever the interpreter desires. There are no governing interpretative principles [in that case] except the interpreter's mind (though there is appeal to the...[New Testament's revelation of spiritual meaning behind many facets of the Old Testament]). Even apocalyptic visions such as found in these chapters [at the end of Ezekiel] require a normal [literal method of interpretation]. To interpret these chapters in any manner other than a normal, literal approach would appear to contradict the interpretative guide in the vision who warns Ezekiel that he is to write down all the minute details concerning the plan for the temple and its regulations so that these details might be considered carefully and followed in every aspect (40:4; 43:10-11; 44:5; cf. Exod 25:9; 1 Chronicles 28:19). Therefore a figurative approach does not adequately treat the issues of Ezekiel 40-48.

"In order to determine the general time-frame of these chapters, they will be examined in light of the development and flow of Ezekiel's argument in the entire book. He has shown the presence of God's glory in the historical Jerusalem temple and its departure from that temple because of Israel's sin of breaking the Mosaic covenant. The Fall of Jerusalem and the Captivity in Babylon were the consequence (chs. 4-24). After declaring how the nations would also be judged (25:1-33:20), Ezekiel encouraged the Jewish captives through six...messages of hope (33:21-39:29). In these he informed them that the Messiah would restore them to their Promised Land in the future and become a true shepherd to them. They would be cleansed and all their covenants would be fulfilled. Even in the end times, after the land prospers and Israel dwells securely in it, some will try to take the Promised Land away from Israel and profane the Lord's name; but the Lord will not permit it (chs. 38-39). It would seem logical, therefore, that Ezekiel would conclude the logical and chronological development of his prophecy by describing the messianic kingdom and the return of God's glory to govern his people (chs. 40-48) rather than suddenly reverting back to some historical period, whether immediately following the Captivity or during Herod's temple, or to describe an idealistic temple.

"Ezekiel appears to have been contrasting the past and contemporary desecration of the temple and its regulations with the future holiness and righteousness of the temple and its functions. Ezekiel also used this format in chapters 33-39. The correct fixture procedure would bring shame and conviction on Ezekiel's contemporaries (43:6-12; 44:5-16; 45:9-12). This would again point to a future fulfillment of these chapters.

"God's glory is a most important feature of Ezekiel's prophecy. The return of God's glory to the new temple in 43:1-12 is the climax of the book. The context implies that this could only occur after Israel has been restored to her Promised Land and cleansed. The stress is on holiness. Holiness had not characterized Israel as a people heretofore; and, according to Ezekiel 36, Israel would not be a holy people in accord with God's standard till after they had been restored to the Promised Land and cleansed in the Messianic Age. When God's glory returns, it will remain in Israel's midst forever (43:6-7). The development of this unifying factor in Ezekiel's prophecy would argue strongly for a future fulfillment of chapters 40-48.

"Finally, the entire context and argument of the Scriptures concerning God's outworking of his redemptive plan in history would seem to place these chapters and the aspects mentioned above in the time of the consummation of all history. This is perhaps best seen in the river of life that flows from the temple to bring healing to the land (47:1-12). This concept is first seen in Genesis 2:8-14 in the Garden of Eden, the perfect environment of God's holiness. With sin, this garden and its river were removed. When God concludes his redemptive program and brings full salvation to mankind with eternal life through the passion of Jesus Christ his Son, it is most appropriate that the river of eternal life would again flow to demonstrate full healing on the earth. This conclusion to the full circle of God's redemptive program is also shown in Revelation 22:1-6 in God's description of the eternal state. Such is also conveyed by other O[ld] T[estament] prophets (cf. Isa 35:5-6; Joel 3:18; Zech 14:8).

"Therefore, the context and argument of the Book of Ezekiel as well as the development of God's redemptive program argue strongly for a future fulfillment of the events of Ezekiel 40-48 in the end times" (introductory notes on chapters 40-48).

Expositor's next takes up the issue of whether the vision is of the 1,000-year reign of Christ (the Millennium) or the eternal state beyond it. As it explains, the obvious differences between the descriptions in Ezekiel and those of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21-22 make it clear that Ezekiel's vision is of Jerusalem and the Promised Land during the Millennium.

Many have great difficulty with the concept of a sacrificial system being reinstituted in the future. The book of Hebrews explains regarding the Old Testament system that "in those sacrifices there is [only] a reminder of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins" (10:4). Rather, Jesus Christ has "once...appeared to put away sins by the sacrifice of Himself" and "we have been sacrificed through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all" (9:26; 10:10). Israel's ritual system, we are told, "was symbolic for the present time...imposed until the time of reformation" (9:9)—meaning the Church age. This is why many try to interpret these chapters at the end of Ezekiel allegorically.

Expositor's notes: "The writer of Hebrews goes on to say that where sins have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. Understood in the context of Hebrews described above, there is no longer the need for the picture lessons and reminders now that the reality of Christ's efficacious blood sacrifice has been offered once and for all. No other efficacious sacrifice could be offered because only Christ's sacrifice of himself is efficacious. However, the writer of Hebrews does not declare that pictorial sacrifices and festivals absolutely can no longer be observed as reminders and picture lessons of what Christ did after his singularly efficacious sacrifice has been completed. Since the sacrifices and festivals in the O[ld] T[estament] system were only pictures, they could never conflict with the sacrifice of the Messiah. They never were and never could be efficacious. Likewise, the sacrifices in the millennial system described by Ezekiel are only picture lessons and reminders of the sin of man and of the only efficacious sacrifice for sin once and for all made by Christ. The millennial sacrifices will be both reminders to believers in millennial worship and picture lessons to unbelievers born in the Millennium. (These 'unbelievers' could be born from the Jews who enter the Millennium from the tribulation period.) On the basis of the O[ld] T[estament] role of the sacrifices and the argument of the writer of Hebrews, it does not appear that the pictorial sacrifices of the Mosaic system nor the memorial sacrifices of the millennial worship conflict with the finished and complete work of Jesus' sacrifice for all sins once and for all on the cross. Consequently, the sacrifices in the millennial sacrificial system of Ezekiel appear to be only memorials of Christ's finished work and pictorial reminders that mankind by nature is sinful and in need of redemption from sin. Not only is this view substantiated by comparison with the Mosaic covenant in which the sacrifices were picture lessons and types, but it is also confirmed by the writer of Hebrews as observed above" (emphasis added).

Today, Christians can and should gain a great deal of insight into the reconciling and saving work of Jesus Christ through studying the Old Testament tabernacle and temple and its sacrificial system. Yet that insight is certainly limited by having to construct in mental pictures, based on complex and detailed passages, what it was like. Just imagine the establishment of a living, functioning model at the world's capital. What a wonderful teaching tool this will provide for the Israelites living in the Promised Land and, as there will likely still be mass communications at that time, for all mankind.

The Millennial Temple Complex (Ezekiel 40) English Standard Version Online Bible

Ezekiel's vision was received on the tenth day of the first month. "If it is correct to designate the month as Nisan [the first month on the religious calendar], then this apocalyptic vision would have been received on the tenth day of Nisan, the very day the people may have begun to prepare for the Passover four days later. Whether they actually observed the Passover or not in exile, surely they would be contemplating Israel's redemption out of Egypt and the creation of their nation. This vision, then, would be an encouragement that the Lord would complete his purposes for the nation in the messianic kingdom" (Expositor's Bible Commentary, note on verse 1-4).

We then get into the specifics of what Ezekiel saw. The details often make the reading of this section tedious and incomprehensible. Also, there is a great deal of dispute about what all of the measurements are, and what they refer to. Nevertheless, with the information provided here and historical details we have of the past Jerusalem temples, we can get a good idea of what the magnificent temple to be built at the return of Jesus Christ will probably look like.

Ezekiel is first taken to a "very high mountain" (verse 2), perhaps signifying the nation of Israel in a figurative sense, as it will be the chief nation of the Millennium. It could also represent the Kingdom of God, the ultimate peak of which will be the heavenly "mount of the congregation in the farthest sides of the north" (Isaiah 14:13)—for despite the fact that Jesus Christ will rule from the earthly Jerusalem over all nations, heaven will, during the Millennium, remain the seat of God the Father and thus the pinnacle of the Kingdom. In any case, the prophet is able to see on the southern part of this mountain what appears to him to be something like a city. Indeed, when we reconstruct the temple complex according to the measurements given, this is just what it looks like. Ezekiel was probably familiar with the city of Babylon with its thick walls and gates, and he probably found some similarity. Yet as a future city, we could perhaps expect some things Ezekiel saw to be more like one of our modern cities than what he himself was accustomed to.

The complex of buildings occupies a square, 500 cubits on each side, covering about 25 acres. Carefully arranged within the complex are variously sized open courtyards surrounded by buildings, many of which are several stories tall. A number of "towers" can be seen (see Psalm 48:13). One structure in the middle of the complex apparently reaches to the height of a modern 25-story building. And surrounding the square of buildings there is a large open parkland that is enclosed by a wall, defining the outer perimeter of the grounds of this "city."

There is some confusion as to exactly where the millennial temple complex will be located. The question centers on the meaning of Zion or Mount Zion in other passages. The Bible elsewhere makes it clear that Jesus Christ will reign from Zion (Psalm 132:13-14; Isaiah 2:3; 8:18; 18:7; Micah 4:2, 7). Zion was the area of David's Jerusalem. The Temple Mount, a higher hill just north of the City of David where Solomon's and the later temple complexes sat, is Mount Moriah (2 Chronicles 3:1). When Solomon's temple was built, the Ark of the Covenant was brought up to the Temple Mount from "the city of David, which is Zion" (1 Kings 8:1).

This has led some to conclude that Zion is restricted to the area of David's city. If that is the case, then the millennial temple will be located here, south of the present Temple Mount. This southern area, however, is a rather narrow hilltop with higher hills surrounding it, so the topography of the area would have to be drastically altered. This could well be as Zion is to be exalted and built up (see Isaiah 2:2; 40:9; Micah 4:1; Psalm 102:16). Indeed, the whole area around Jerusalem is going to become a plain (Zechariah 14:10). Why might the temple be moved? Perhaps to symbolize that God's throne is no longer high above Jerusalem in a heavenly place but has rather come down to the earthly capital—where sits the throne of David that Jesus will assume.

But that's only if the temple really is to be moved. It could well be that Zion applies to all of Jerusalem. Indeed, the name Jerusalem originally applied to the City of David. The Temple Mount was then incorporated into Jerusalem. If Zion was simply synonymous with Jerusalem, then the Temple Mount would have been part of Zion. The city later came to encompass a larger area to the west, which all became part of Jerusalem—and perhaps of Zion. Today, the hill to the west of David's city is referred to as Zion. Yet it seems quite possible that the biblical designation of Zion applies to the entire city of Jerusalem. Indeed, in Isaiah 2:3, the two seem to mean exactly the same place. Ezekiel's temple complex could easily fit on the current Temple Mount—yet even in that case, major topographical changes will still be made to the area.

After seeing an overview of the complex, Ezekiel is brought down to it, where he meets his tour guide standing at a gate. This "man" is holding a measuring rod and a line of flax (apparently a measuring tape of unspecified length, used for especially long measurements). He tells Ezekiel to record what he sees for the benefit of the house of Israel, and ultimately for our instruction (Ezekiel 40:3-4).

The length of the measuring rod is given as six cubits. There is some dispute about the size of a cubit. Many consider a cubit to have been 18 inches. Others claim a standard cubit was about 21 inches, or some other length. Since the cubit being used here is defined as one handbreadth longer than the standard cubit of the day (verse 5), we could expect something longer than the standard by about 4 inches. (Four inches is the current measure of a "hand," as used in measuring horses). Without going into all of the supporting evidence, there is some indication that the Hebrew cubit was based on "handbreadths" or palms, and that a palm was 3.6 inches. This would make an 18-inch cubit equal to five palms, and a 21.6-inch cubit six palms (perhaps this was the "cubit of a man" after the number of man—see Deuteronomy 3:11 KJV; Revelation 13:18). We are proceeding on the assumption of a seven-palm, 25.2-inch cubit, as described in the Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th edition, article "Weights and Measures." Some may insist this is too long, but the relative proportions of the buildings remain the same regardless of which cubit size is used. And with the seven-palm cubit, rooms that appear to be bed-chambers turn out to have the square footage of modern college dormitory rooms; rooms used for private dining are just over 12 feet square; the tables used for holding the instruments for sacrifice come to a reasonable work table height and the tables for the showbread (Exodus 25:23) would have been as a normal countertop or buffet table in height. Using a much smaller cubit would yield some uncomfortably small rooms and furnishings.

With the seven-palm, 25.2-inch cubit, the measuring rod used by Ezekiel's guide is 12.6 feet long. The tour begins with the measuring of an outer wall, which is one rod high, and one rod thick (Ezekiel 40:5). It is often assumed that this first wall Ezekiel encounters surrounds the "outer court" of the temple (verse 17). There are problems with this, however, as this wall is described as being "all around the outside of the temple," and yet there are a number of other structures that clearly occupy some of the space that this wall would have to occupy if it were there. While it could perhaps be an outer building wall in places, discrepancies in building height and other features make even this resolution awkward. And in verse 6, it says they went to the east gate and went up the stairs (giving the impression of approaching it) after measuring this wall. This seems to imply that the six-cubit wall was behind them, outside of the gate they were approaching. And indeed, as described in chapter 42, there is a freestanding wall much further out to enclose an open parkland around the temple complex. Perhaps it was in one of the gates of this outer park wall that the man with the measuring instruments was standing to greet Ezekiel and show him through this "city" of the future.

In any case, they enter the eastern gate of the building complex after climbing some steps. The actual number of steps for the eastern gate is not given, but the northern and southern gates each have seven steps (40:22, 26). The eastern gate may have the same number, or there may be more, considering that the eastern side of the temple complex may sit above a steeper slope than the other sides. There is a valley, the Kidron Valley, running just below the east side of both the current Temple Mount and the City of David. So there could well be a need for additional steps.

Next we are given the dimensions of the gates. Each gateway comprises a narrow, 50-cubit-long (105-foot) passageway through a large building complex. In the middle of the gateway is a small open-air courtyard (25 cubits wide, verse 13, and at least as long) with three six-cubit (12.6-foot) square rooms on either side. These rooms may at times be used as dining rooms for leaders (as alluded to in Ezekiel 44:3). And they may also be used by the priests as counseling rooms for judging private disputes (see Deuteronomy 16:18; 17:8-9; Ezekiel 44:24).

The thresholds at the outer entrance of the gateway corridor are fairly narrow (only 12.6 feet wide), symbolically picturing the constricted nature of the gate into the Kingdom of God (Matthew 7:14). The entrance gates will be attended by gatekeepers (as in former days, 1 Chronicles 9:22-24; 2 Chronicles 23:19; Ezekiel 44:11), who will have the responsibility of restricting entrance into the main courtyards of the temple to those who fit the scriptural requirements of being clean, both spiritually and physically—circumcised in mind and body (see 44:9, 23).

Other details about these gates are given, but the exact application of each measurement is not always clear. The accompanying diagram provides the basic outline and one interpretation of Ezekiel's description. Controversy especially surrounds the height of these gates. Ezekiel 40:14 describes "gateposts" that are 60 cubits (126 feet) high—or about 12 stories tall. While some reject the idea that this is a vertical dimension, there is no reason to believe it is not. Most feel it applies at least to the "vestibule" or "porch" (KJV) located on the inner side of the gate (verses 8-9), but whether it is a narrow tower over just the entrance, or whether it stretches across the entire 50-cubit face of the gate is not clear. If it did, it would give the gate some design similarity to the temple itself. Another view applies this measurement to the entire gate complex (to all its vertical support members), in a design that Ezekiel would have recognized as being similar to most ancient city gates.

Many of the "walls" Ezekiel encounters are five or six cubits thick (10.5-12.6 feet), and quite capable of containing small rooms. Since it was common in ancient times for rooms or passageways to be built into and on the city walls (as was the house of Rahab in Jericho, Joshua 2:15), we must not assume that everything Ezekiel refers to as a "wall" was a completely solid structure throughout. While these walls could be primarily for insulation, one could also speculate on what functional use might be made of this space, including perhaps closets, restrooms, utility rooms, and, considering the height of some of these buildings, even elevators and stairwells.

Passing through the eastern gate, Ezekiel and his guide enter the outer court, move on to the northern gate, and then to the southern gate, which are said to all be of the same design. The outer court is 100 cubits wide (210 feet), between the outer and inner gates (Ezekiel 40:19, 23, 27). And, in the area adjacent to the outer gates are 30 chambers, perhaps five chambers on each side of the three gates, each of them located in the center of their respective 500-cubit span. In front of these chambers is a pavement, or walkway, to provide access to them (verses 17-18).

Ezekiel states that these 30 chambers "faced the pavement," which he defined as the "lower pavement." This may mean he was giving only the number of chambers on the ground floor. As we will see, certain other chamber-bearing structures have at least three stories, and there is reason to believe these outer court buildings are multilevel structures as well. For example, Ezekiel 42:6 describes a three-story building which did not need pillars "like the pillars of the courts" because it was built with a terraced design so that upper floors could have front patios built on the rooftops of the lower floors. This implies that there were pillars in the courts being used as the structural means of supporting multilevel patios or walkway pavements.

The Inner Gates and Court (Ezekiel 40) English Standard Version Online Bible

From the outer south gate, Ezekiel is brought across the outer court to the inner south gate. These inner gates are basically mirror images of the outer gates, so that the "vestibules" or "archways" of the outer gates (verses 31, 34, 37, apparently the main entryways of each gate) face the corresponding "archways" of the inner gates. One difference is that there are eight steps leading up to the inner gates, instead of seven (verse 31). After going through, and measuring, the inner south gate, they move on to the east inner gate, and then the north inner gate, all mirror images of the outer gates, and directly across from them.

At the north gate, Ezekiel sees several items directly related to the offering of sacrifices, including tables and utensils, and the entrance to a room for washing the meat for the burnt offering (verses 38-43; Leviticus 1:9, 13). In Solomon's time the burnt offerings were washed using elaborate open-air lavers (water tanks) situated in the inner courtyard around the temple. Ezekiel describes no such lavers in the millennial temple, nor any lavers for the priests to wash themselves in (as used at the tabernacle, Exodus 30:18-21), nor any cast bronze "sea" (the 21-foot diameter water tank, that Solomon had set up at the southeast corner of the temple for the priests' washing, see 2 Chronicles 4:2-6, 10). Since Ezekiel describes an indoor facility northeast of the temple for the washing of the burnt offerings, we might expect to find additional space there (and especially in the parallel location southeast of the temple) with washrooms for the priests. And we might also expect that all of these rooms will be fully equipped with modern indoor plumbing.

After touring the north inner court gate, Ezekiel is shown rooms for the priests (now limited to the sons of Zadok, see Ezekiel 40:46; 44:15-31), apparently on the east side of the north and south gates, facing each other. They are described as "chambers for the singers" (40:44-46), so they are likely to be used as rehearsal rooms for priests who will undoubtedly once again be "employed in that work [making music in praise to God and doing other temple and altar work] day and night" in rotating shifts throughout the year (1 Chronicles 9:25-33). These gates and rooms surround a 100-cubit square courtyard located in front of the temple sanctuary. This inner courtyard is in the center of the entire temple complex, with the altar of burnt offering (Ezekiel 40:47) as the focal point in the very middle of everything.

With the last two verses (48-49), Ezekiel completes his counterclockwise tour of the inner court by arriving at the vestibule (porch) of the temple itself, on the west side of the courtyard. Two pillars are briefly mentioned in verse 49, probably identical to the ancient temple pillars described in some detail in 1 Kings 7:15-22 and 2 Chronicles 3:15-17. Comparing the design of the pillars of the temple of Solomon with extra-biblical records about similar pillars in the court of the second temple, we can surmise that they may have been used as enormous torches—oil lamps on a grand scale. (The Herodian temple had four such courtyard lamps.)

The Temple Sanctuary (Ezekiel 41)

The temple sanctuary building itself is not described in detail in Ezekiel. But it is described enough to recognize that the design is very much like that of both the tabernacle and the temple Solomon built. This makes sense when we realize that the designs of these earlier structures were given by God to reflect the pattern of the heavenly temple (see Exodus 25:8-9; 26:30; 1 Chronicles 28:11-12, 19; Hebrews 8:5). To get a full picture of Ezekiel's temple, it is often necessary to refer to details given elsewhere about the first temple, and even the tabernacle.

For example, the height of the vestibule or "porch" (the entrance hall structure) of the future temple is not given in Ezekiel. It is described in 2 Chronicles 3:4 as being 120 cubits (252 feet) in height, making it as tall as a modern 25-story building. The lobby of this entrance hall is described by Ezekiel 40:49 as having inside dimensions of 11 x 20 cubits (23 x 42 feet).

Ezekiel now enters the Holy Place from the vestibule (verses 1-2). There are only two rooms in the temple sanctuary, each 20 cubits (42 feet) in width. The first, called elsewhere the Holy Place, is 20 x 40 cubits (42 x 84 feet). The height is given in 1 Kings 6:2 as 30 cubits (63 feet). In the tabernacle and first temple, it contained the table of showbread, the seven-branched lampstand or menorah and the altar of incense. Only the incense altar is mentioned here (Ezekiel 41:22), but that could be because it is specifically mentioned as being larger. Perhaps the other furnishings, if present, were the same as Ezekiel already knew them to be from the first temple.

The inner room (verses 3-4), called the Most Holy Place or Holy of Holies, is a square 20 x 20 cubits. According to 1 Kings 6:20 its height is also 20 cubits. In the tabernacle and first temple it contained the Ark of the Covenant. Ezekiel does not mention the ark. Jeremiah 3:16-17 says: "Then it shall come to pass...that they will say no more, 'The ark of the covenant of the Lord.' It shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they visit it, nor shall it be made anymore. At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of the Lord, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem." This could mean that there won't be an ark there at all. However, that seems somewhat odd given that there is a heavenly ark that would likely still be typified in the millennial temple (see Revelation 11:19). The point of Jeremiah's statement may simply be that the actual bodily presence of God in the person of the glorified Jesus Christ will so overshadow the ark that this representative object will not even be thought of. People will go to Jerusalem not to visit the mere resting place of the ark, but rather to see where the Almighty King sits enthroned in majesty. What is the ark itself compared to that awesome reality? (Interestingly, the statement that the ark will not be "made anymore" could even indicate that the original ark will be the one brought back and used—though the word rendered "made" can be variously translated, so the meaning is not entirely clear.)

Further details on the design and decor of the temple can be found in 1 Kings 6 (verses 2-4, 14-32). It can also be noted that most of the dimensions of the temple structure are twice that of the tabernacle (see Exodus 26:15-30). With this initial brief description of the temple sanctuary, Ezekiel moves beyond its 6-cubit-thick (12.6-foot) walls (Ezekiel 41:5), to the 90 side chambers that surround it. Combined with 1 Kings 6:5-6 and verse 10 we learn that each room is four cubits in width and five cubits tall, but five, six or seven cubits in length depending on which of the three stories the rooms were on, with the larger rooms on the top floor. (These chambers bolster the argument for a seven-palm cubit, which would make the smaller rooms 8.4 x 10.5 feet, with 10.5-foot stories. With a five-palm or 18-inch cubit, these rooms would only be 6 x 7.5 feet, with a rather short 7.5 feet between floors.) The step-like construction of these chambers is described, with the explanation that the configuration allows each floor to be supported on the temple side using one-cubit ledges, rather than requiring fasteners penetrating into the temple wall itself (Ezekiel 41:6-7; compare 1 Kings 6:6). No mention is given here as to the purpose for these chambers, but other verses (for example, 1 Chronicles 9:27) describe Levites lodging all around the house of God. These rooms do seem about the size of bedrooms, with the third floor chambers being large enough for double occupancy. (This would allow a total of 120 beds.)

We were earlier told that there were steps leading up to the temple (40:49). The number is not given. Ezekiel 41:8 describes a six-cubit elevation around the temple for the side chambers, but when all the various measurements are laid out, it appears that this foundation does not extend underneath the temple itself. There is also a five-cubit-wide terrace along the outside of the side chambers, undoubtedly with a restraining rail of some sort for the safety of those using it (verse 11; see Deuteronomy 22:8). The 20-cubit-wide walkway (verse 10) appears to be the one on the ground level between the temple and the inner court buildings.

In verse 12, Ezekiel is shown one of these buildings—the very large structure on the western side of the inner courtyard. It is 70 x 90 cubits inside (nearly 28,000 square feet). Not much is said about it here, but in 1 Chronicles 26:12-18 a storehouse is mentioned, adjacent to a highway, which could only have been on the western side of the temple complex where there were no outer courts. Several other scriptures mention such a storehouse (see 1 Kings 7:51; Nehemiah 10:38; 12:44; 13:12-13; Malachi 3:10) as a place for keeping tithes, offerings and firstfruits, as well as temple articles of gold and silver. Since most all of the other buildings are multiple stories, it is also quite likely that this building is similarly tall.

We are then given several measurements that are all 100 cubits (Ezekiel 41:13). First, the temple itself from east to west is 100 cubits. Second, from the west outer edge of the temple complex through the storehouse and walkway to the west edge of the temple itself is also 100 (5+70+5+20 cubits). We were previously told of the 100-cubit courtyard in the center, and the two 50-cubit east gates with a 100-cubit outer court between them, making the entire complex from west to east 500 cubits, as already mentioned. The north-south dimensions were already defined as two 50-cubit gates and a 100-cubit outer courtyard on each side of the 100-cubit inner courtyard at the center. We are now also told that the eastern face of the temple and two 20-cubit walkways are the exact width of the 100-cubit inner court, making the temple itself 60 cubits wide (verse 14). The western storehouse is also confirmed to be 100 cubits wide (90 plus the two five-cubit-wide walls, verse 15).

The remainder of the chapter contains details on the appearance of the temple. These include windows and wall decorations of palm trees and "cherubim," creatures that in this case had two faces, as opposed to the four faces Ezekiel had seen many years earlier (see Ezekiel 1). There is also a description of the incense altar (41:22), which was a cubit higher and wider than that of the tabernacle (see Exodus 30:2). Finally, we are given descriptions of the bi-fold doors to each of the two rooms of the temple. Further details are given in 1 Kings 6 about windows and wall decorations, although in some cases differences can be noted.


The Third Temple: Israel's Missing Link.

By Chaim Clorfene

In the introduction to his book Ohr Hamikdash (Light of the Temple), Rabbi Moshe Luria, explains that the Torah, the Sabbath, and the Holy Temple are respectively the essence of Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge (Chachmah, Binah, and Daath). These three are called a rope of three strands that binds the Jewish people (and arguably all the other people of the world, as well) to the God of Israel.

Torah is familiar to us on a daily basis, "for it is our life and the length of our days and we meditate on it day and night." The Sabbath comes to us once a week without fail. But what about the Holy Temple? As of this date, it has been missing for 1936 years. For nearly 100 generations no one has seen or experienced the Holy Temple. Yet, the Temple does more than stand alongside Torah and Sabbath in importance. It is the link that binds them together, for the true nature of Knowledge (Daath) is its power to unify. This is the meaning of (Gen. 4:1), "And Adam knew his wife, Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain." Conjugal union between husband and wife is called knowledge "in the Biblical sense," and it is this power that binds all things as one. The essence of this Knowledge is the Temple.

We can appreciate how the Temple unifies Torah and the Sabbath from the 39 work activities (melachoth) that the Torah prohibits on the Sabbath. They are derived from the 39 creative activities by which the Mishkan (Tabernacle) was built by Moses at Mount Sinai. The Mishkan was the Temple in a portable form, having the same status as the Temple in Jerusalem.

But the Temple unifies more than Torah and Sabbath. It unifies everything else as well. The Holy Temple unifies the Jewish people and serves as the center of government, culture, and communal life. Like blood flows to the heart and is revitalized and pumped back to the body, the people of Israel came to the Temple three times a year to receive God's blessings and return home refreshed and invigorated.

When the Temple is standing, the Divine Presence (Shechina) is fully revealed. Then, God, Israel, and all the nations of the world are unified. This is the true source of world peace, healing and brotherhood. And it happens only in the Temple, as it (Isaiah 2:3), "And many peoples will say, Come, let us ascend to the Mountain of the Lord and He will teach us His ways and we will walk in His paths."

To be sure, the Temple is the missing link. And it has been missing so long, that the world has largely lost interest in it, or worse, regards it in a negative light. Orthodox Jews, evangelical Christians, and archeologists are the last bastions to maintain an active concern for the Temple. And even here, the connection to the Temple is clouded by confusion and misinformation.

Archeological scholarship is almost always a romantic blend of true research and self-willed fantasy. Christians have little or no tradition about the workings of the Temple. They just know it is supposed be rebuilt and it will be a good thing. The real issue is with Orthodox Jews, who pray at least three times every day for the Temple to be rebuilt, and who diligently study the Talmud which is jam-packed with lore and laws about the Temple.

Despite this, nearly all sects and branches of Orthodox Judaism treat the Temple with apathy and neglect. The Chofetz Chaim in the introduction to Avodat HaKorbanot wrote that matters pertaining to the Temple are comparable to finding an unattended corpse (meth mitzvah). When finds an unattended corpse, it is an obligation to get involved to preserve the dignity of the deceased. Even the High Priest, who is forbidden to contaminate himself by contact with the dead, is commanded to bury an unattended corpse, though he will defile himself spiritually. Such is the dignity of the Temple. All who come in contact with teachings about it are enjoined to get involved.

It must remembered that the Mishna, the basic body of Halacha (Jewish Law) was compiled and redacted approximately 110 years after the Second Temple was destroyed. The father of the Mishna, Judah the Prince (Rebbe Yehuda HaNasi) never saw the Temple, never smelled the Holy Incense or heard the singing of the Levites (the real Lost Chord). His teacher, Rabbi Meir, never saw the Temple, and his teacher, Rabbi Akiva, never saw the Temple. The oral tradition of Judaism was codified in the darkness of the Temple in ruins. In fact, that is why it was codified, to guide the Jewish people through the exile.

All our systems, processes, and institutions were born in the shadow of the destruction of the Second Temple. So many rabbis and millions of other Jews had been slain in their prime by Rome, that knowledge of the Second Temple was lost and had to be recovered by deductive reasoning and homiletic interpretation of scriptural verses, resulting in disagreement about most Temple related matters. This has led to great confusion about the Temple, even among some of the greatest scholars.

To set the record straight: there were two Second Temples. The first one was built 70 years after the destruction of Solomon's original Temple. This second Temple stood for 332 years, then was removed and rebuilt by Herod. Herod's Temple took eight years to build and stood for 80 years, then was destroyed by Rome. So different from each other were these two Temples that the Medrash (Numbers Rabba 14) assigns a different sacrifice as their essence. The original Second Temple, built by Zerubavel, governor of Judea, under the direction of Ezra and King Darius of Persia, is represented by a ram as a burnt offering. The rebuilt Second Temple, erected by Herod, is represented by a goat as a sin offering.

For the most part, the Talmud treats the two Temples as one, and we often think we are learning about Ezra's Temple, when in reality we are almost always learning about Herod's Temple.

Few people realize that the miracle of Chanukah took place in Ezra's Temple, not Herod's. The Maccabees vanquished the Greeks and rededicated Ezra's Temple in 3597 (163 B.C.E), fully 145 years before Herod's Temple was built.

The Mishna and the Rambam describe only Herod's Temple. Even the great Rambam confuses the two, stating explicitly in the Mishneh Torah (Laws of the Temple) that the height of Ezra's Temple was 100 cubits, but in truth only Herod's Temple was 100 cubits high. Ezra's Temple was 60 cubits high as reported in Ezra 6:3. In Herod's speech to the Jews, recorded by Josephus (Antiquities, book XV), Herod proclaims that the original builders of the Second Temple were limited by the Persian king to a Temple only 60 cubits high, while he, Herod, promised to raise it to a the appropriate height of 100 cubits.

This Temple of Herod was no simple beautification project. Herod removed Ezra's Temple, stone by stone, right down to the ground, and then removed the foundations and built an entirely new Temple of his own. Herod enlarged the Azora (Inner Courtyard) which was forbidden by Halacha without a Sanhedrin of 71 judges, a Jewish King, and the Urim and Tumim (the oracle of the High Priests Breastplate). Herod, who was not Jewish, had murdered all the members of the Sanhedrin; the Urim and Tumim had not existed since the destruction of the First Temple. In effect, the Second Temple described in the Mishna and the Rambam was an illegal structure, doomed to destruction from the very day it was built.

After Herod's Temple stood for 30 years, the red string that miraculously turned white on Yom Kippur to show that God had forgiven the Jewish people, stopped turning white. Around the same time, the Kohanim (priests) stopped blessing the congregation with God's Four-Letter Name pronounced as spelled. Then havoc began to sweep through the Temple. The High Priest's office became a political job, sold by the Roman overseers to whoever would pay the price. Fifty High Priests in a row failed to make it through Yom Kippur. Some say they died one after another in the Holy of Holies because they were unworthy to enter. Others say each one was simply replaced by another who was willing to pay more for the job.

A few years later, bands of thieves and gangsters began warring against each other in Jerusalem. One of the gangs made its headquarters in the Holy Temple, and bloody battles were fought in the hallowed Sanctuary. This is described in fine detail in Josephus' Jewish Wars. Finally, the Roman legions broke down the walls of Jerusalem, destroyed the Temple, and exterminated virtually every Jew living there.

There is another salient difference between the original Second Temple and Herod's Temple. The builders of the original were saintly sages and prophets. They included Ezra, Nehemiah, Mordecai, Daniel, Zechariah, Haggai, Malachi, Zerubavel, Joshua the High Priest, and Shimon HaTzadik (Simon the Just) among many others. Herod, on the other hand, was a Jew-hating tyrant, one of the most contemptible villains the world has ever known. He did whatever he wanted and did it exactly the way he wanted. No one could say no to him and live to tell about it.

There is a common misconception that Herod rebuilt the Temple as restitution for having murdered several hundred rabbis, including all the members of the Sanhedrin. This error comes from a misreading of the Talmud (Baba Basra 3a). Herod rebuilt the Second Temple for his own glory and no other reason. The proof of this is that he continued murdering sages till the very day of his death when he had two great sages and forty of their disciples burnt at the stake for removing from the Temple Sanctuary a golden statue of an eagle glorifying Rome.

As he lay dying, Herod instructed his sister to kill one member of every prominent Jewish family in Jerusalem so his death should not be celebrated by the Jews as a day of joy, but a day of mourning. She did not obey his instructions.

Herod's evil reached far beyond the grave. Herod's Temple remains the Temple of the Jewish psyche. It is his Temple that we see pictured in storybooks and posters. It is his Temple for which we weep and fast, and break a glass under the wedding canopy. We remember Herod's Temple with fondness because we do not distinguish it from Ezra's Temple. Yet, Herod's Temple was the essence of corruption, alienation and destruction. Herod's Temple is the root of much confusion, apathy and neglect about the Temple and related matters.

The confusion that emanates from Herod's Temple is explained mystically by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto (Ramchal), in Mishkanay Elyon, his discourse about the prophesied Third Temple. This is a bit intricate, but well worth the effort to get it.

The Ramchal explains that the Sanctuary (Heichal) in the Temple is 32 cubits wide (approx. 64 feet or 19.2 meters). These 32 cubits, states the Ramchal, correspond to the 32 paths of Divine Wisdom known as Daath Elyon, the Supernal Knowledge, looking from above to below, from God's perspective so to speak. In front of the Sanctuary stands the Great Sacrificial Altar (Mizbeyach). Its base is also 32 cubits wide. This is Daath Tachton, the lower knowledge or man's perspective, looking from below to above. The correct place of the Mizbeyach is precisely in front of the Sanctuary so that the 32 paths of higher and lower wisdom are in alignment. Then heaven and earth are aligned and the Shechina dwells in the Holy Temple. But for a technical reason explained in the Talmud, the Mizbeyach of the Second Temple was drawn to the south of the Sanctuary, clearly out of alignment with the Sanctuary. This indicated that God's Knowledge and man's knowledge were out of alignment and the Shechina did not dwell in the Second Temple. This resulted in endless disputes (machloketh) and confusion.

But in the Third Temple, the Mizbeyach will stand precisely before the Sanctuary, as it says (Ezekiel 40:47), "The Altar stands before the House." According to the Ramchal and virtually all other authorities, this verse indicates that in the Third Temple, the Mizbeyach must stand directly in front of the Sanctuary in perfect alignment.

From this we can find the elixir that will heal so many confused hearts, transform apathy into vitality, and replace the missing link. If we would simply shift our primary focus from the Temple of the past, Herod's Temple, to the Temple of the future which is described in the last chapters of the Book of Ezekiel, the confusion would begin to dissolve. We perpetually beat ourselves up over a 2000 year old tragedy while ignoring a bright hope for a future that could take place tomorrow, even today.

Ezekiel's prophecy of an everlasting Third Temple is 2400 years old. In Talmudic times, there was little cognizance of it, other than Bible commentator and teacher Yonathan ben Uzziel's interpretative translation of Ezekiel into Aramaic. But beginning with the classic Bible and Talmudic commentator Rashi early in the eleventh century C.E., rabbinic scholars have produced literally dozens of commentaries explaining Ezekiel's cryptic design. And in this generation, a new field of study has begun to emerge around Ezekiel's vision of the Third Temple.

In his introduction to Ohr HaMikdash, Rabbi Luria writes in the name of the Raavad that we will not see the Third Temple until every last vestige of the Second Temple is removed. So the point is that we need closure on the Second Temple. By shifting from Second Temple consciousness to a Third Temple world view, we can forge a new link to replace the missing link of the Temple. This new link will be far more glorious than the old one and absolutely unbreakable. May it happen speedily in our days.

Vaccinations are one of the most controversial issues in children's health. On one side, you have the Centers for Disease Control who advocates a schedule for vaccinations that starts within minutes of the baby's birth with the administration of the hepatitis B vaccine and follows through childhood with a recommended schedule of 29 vaccinations by the age of 12 months, and 55 vaccinations by the age of 18 years. [1]

On the other side, you have a growing number of parents and homeopathic physicians like me who feel many of these vaccines do more harm than good.

And you might say there is a third side to this picture: history. It suggests that polio, diphtheria and other infectious diseases had pretty much run their course before vaccinations started. The defeat of infectious disease, according to many historians, was due much more to the rise of modern sanitation.

In June 2007, a study financed by Generation Rescue, shows a clear connection between neurological disorders and vaccinations. The study found that more than twice the number of vaccinated children had autism than those who had not been vaccinated. When you look beyond autism to other neurological disorders, the rates of children damaged by vaccinations are even higher. The study can be found at

“Generation Rescue” was formed by parents of children who have been diagnosed with childhood neurological disorders. With financial support from celebrities Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey, a series of full page ads have been placed in the New York Times and USA Today.

Here are two from that series.

A research team led by scientists from the University of Pittsburgh and the autism group Thoughtful House studied what happened when 13 monkeys were given a birth dose of a hepatitis B vaccine including the mercury preservative. They found it caused significant delays in the development of several survival reflexes such as the ability to suck at the breast. The findings were published on line September 30, 2009, in the journal Neurotoxicology.

Although the paper is carefully worded and the results reported modestly, a finding that early exposure to potentially toxic vaccine formulations can cause significant neuro-developmental delays in primates has explosive implications for vaccine safety management. "Our study design does not enable us to determine whether it is the vaccine per se, the exposure to [thimerosal], or a combination of both that is causing the observed effects." researchers said.

The evidence is building, although the verdict is not in. Is it the neurotoxins like aluminum and mercury in the vaccines? Is it the other additives like MSG? It is the timing of the vaccines? Is it that the vaccinations are given at too early an age, before the immune system can deal with them? Something else? All of the above?

Mercury is a cheap preservative; bacteria and molds will not grow in it. The thimerosal rich vials allow needles to be inserted repeatedly and the vaccine drawn out. The re-usable vials are cheaper than packaging doses of vaccine separately, without thimerosal.

For more than 60 years the medical community simply trusted the Eli Lilly Company's assertion that thimerosal/merthiolate had a low potential toxicity if injected into humans. Based on unscientific and unethical studies done in the late nineteen twenties, several generations of public health care officials, doctors and medical educators were duped into injecting the most toxic and lethal chemical known to man into infants. Documents from the archives of Eli Lilly & Company, the original manufacturer of thimerosal, clearly demonstrate that the mercury-based vaccine preservative, implicated in a number of recent law suits as causing neurological injury to infants, was known as early as April 1930 to be dangerous. [2]

Though mercury, in the form of thimerosal, has been in use for over sixty years in vaccines, the big problem with this pharmaceutical practice only became obvious through decisions implemented in 1990 and 1991, when the medical establishment more than doubled the amount of mercury injected into children during the first year of life. With the addition of Hib and then a year later the Hepatitis B vaccine, medical authorities passed federal guidelines for safe mercury levels. [3]

In the years between 1970 and the late '90s, the autism rates in America rose from 1 in 10,000 children to 1 in 166. Today, the rate is about 1 in 100. More than twice as many children have chronic brain and immune system dysfunction today than did in the 1970’s when half as many vaccines were given to children. During the past quarter century, the number of children with learning disabilities, ADHD, asthma and diabetes has more than tripled.[4]

Why were these problems so much more rare in our grandparents' day? Many point to the change in the vaccine schedule.

In the year 1900, children received just one vaccine; it was for smallpox. Today, children may receive 49 shots by age 6 – that’s 49 doses of 14 different vaccines. A two month old baby can receive as many as 8 vaccines on a single day. At age 15 to 18 months, a child can receive as many as 12 vaccines on a single day.[6]

It was finally recognized in 1999 that the long half-life of ethlymercury could theoretically result in accumulation and toxicity during chronic applications and as such, joint statements by the American Academy of Pediatricians and the United States Public Health Services recommended removal of thimerosal from all vaccines. [7]

Vaccines that still contain mercury include:
  • All DTwP products (Diphtheria, Tetanus & whole cell Pertussis)
  • DT (Diphtheria & Tetanus) multi-dose vials
  • All Tetanus Toxoid vaccines
  • Meningococcal multi-dose vials
  • All multi-dose vials of seasonal and swine flu vaccine, recommended for children over the age of three and adults.
For a list of mercury content in US licensed vaccines, go to


As the mercury was removed from some vaccines, however, the amount of aluminum – also a neurotoxin – increased. Neil Z. Miller of the Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute points out:
"The hepatitis B vaccine given at birth contains 250 mcg of aluminum – 20 times higher than safety levels … Babies who have followed the CDC immunization schedule are injected with nearly 5000 mcg (5 mg) of aluminum by 18 months of age."[8]
When you and your child are in the doctor's office for a wellness visit, this kind of information usually is not offered in advance of the decision to vaccinate. In fact, often vaccination is not even a decision – parents are told what to do and do it without question because their doctor recommended it. Or because they think the school requires it. But with increasing numbers of parents grieving for their "lost" children, it is only prudent to consider the evidence and decide for yourself.

We've included several excellent articles for you to read and decide what makes sense to you.

One is by Lynne Born, writing for the Weston A. Price Foundation. Her article includes a timeline for polio, smallpox, and diphtheria relative to how those infectious diseases peaked, versus when vaccinations started.


Another article is actually a three-part series that ran in the Townsend Letter in 2007. It is rich in detail about each vaccine. And it prompts us to look beyond mercury, to the surprisingly long list of ingredients in vaccines including "dog kidney tissue, monkey kidney tissue, pig or horse blood, cowpox pus, formaldehyde and aluminum phosphate."

Another comes from David Kirby, author of "Evidence of Harm – Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic: A Medical Controversy." He reflects on the landmark Hannah Poling case, the first case in which the U.S. government acknowledged that vaccines contributed to autism.

Mmmm, a lot of those symptoms sound like flu, don't they?

The data sheet further goes on to say:

Blood and lymphatic system disorders: Lymphadenopathy.
Eye disorders: Conjunctivitis, eye pain, photophobia.
Gastrointestinal disorders: Dysphagia, vomiting.
General disorders and administration site conditions: Chest pain, injection site inflammation, rigors, asthenia, injection site rash, influenza-like symptoms, abnormal gait, injection site bruising, injection site sterile abscess.
Immune system disorders: Allergic edema of the face, allergic edema of the mouth, anaphylaxis, allergic edema of the throat.
Infections and infestations: Pharyngitis, rhinitis, laryngitis, cellulitis.
Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders: Muscle weakness, back pain, arthritis.
Nervous system disorders: Dizziness, paresthesia, hypoesthesia, hypokinesia, tremor, somnolence, syncope, Guillain-Barré syndrome, convulsions/seizures, facial or cranial nerve paralysis, encephalopathy, limb paralysis.

Anaphylaxis has been reported after administration of FLULAVAL. Although FLULAVAL contains only a limited quantity of egg protein, this protein can induce immediate hypersensitivity reactions among persons who have severe egg allergy. Allergic reactions include hives, angioedema, allergic asthma, and systemic anaphylaxis (see CONTRAINDICATIONS [4]).
The 1976 swine influenza vaccine was associated with an increased frequency of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).

Guillain-Barre Syndrome And Flu Vaccination

Guillain-Barré syndrome after influenza vaccination in adults: a population-based study.

Whether influenza vaccination is associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) remains uncertain. METHODS: We conducted 2 studies using population-based health care data from the province of Ontario, Canada. In the first study, we used the self-matched case-series method to explore the temporal association between probable influenza vaccination (adults vaccinated during October and November) and subsequent hospitalization because of GBS. In the second study, we used time-series analysis to determine whether the institution of a universal influenza immunization program in October 2000 was associated with a subsequent increase in hospital admissions because of GBS at the population level. RESULTS: From April 1, 1992, to March 31, 2004, we identified 1601 incident hospital admissions because of GBS in Ontario. In 269 patients, GBS was diagnosed within 43 weeks of vaccination against influenza. The estimated relative incidence of GBS during the primary risk interval (weeks 2 through 7) compared with the control interval (weeks 20 through 43) was 1.45 (95% confidence interval, 1.05-1.99; P = .02). This association persisted in several sensitivity analyses using risk and control intervals of different durations. However, a separate time-series analysis demonstrated no evidence of seasonality and revealed no statistically significant increase in hospital admissions because of GBS after the introduction of the universal influenza immunization program. CONCLUSION: Influenza vaccination is associated with a small but significantly increased risk for hospitalization because of GBS.

GBS occurs after flu vaccination in 1 in 100,000 cases.

Arch Intern Med. 2006 Nov 13;166(20):2217-21.

Contraindications To Flu Injection (people who should not have it)

FLULAVAL should not be administered to anyone with known systemic hypersensitivity reactions to egg proteins (eggs or egg products), to chicken proteins, or to any component of FLULAVAL, or who has had a life threatening reaction to previous influenza vaccination.

4.2 Acute Neurologic Disorder
Immunization should be delayed in a patient with an acute evolving neurologic disorder but should be considered when the disease process has been stabilized.

5.1 Guillain-Barré Syndrome
If Guillain-Barré syndrome has occurred within 6 weeks of receipt of prior influenza vaccine, the decision to give FLULAVAL should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.

5.2 Persons at Risk of Bleeding
FLULAVAL should not be given to individuals with bleeding disorders such as hemophilia or thrombocytopenia, or to persons on anticoagulant therapy unless the potential benefit clearly outweighs the risk of administration. If the decision is made to administer FLULAVAL to such persons, steps should be considered to control the risk of hematoma following the injection.

Altered Immunocompetence

If FLULAVAL is administered to immunocompromised persons, including individuals receiving immunosuppressive therapy, the expected immune response may not be obtained.

5.4 Preventing and Managing Allergic Vaccine Reactions

Prior to administration, the healthcare provider should review the patient’s immunization history for possible vaccine sensitivity, previous vaccination-related adverse reactions and occurrence of any adverse event-related symptoms and/or signs, in order to determine the
existence of any contraindication to immunization with FLULAVAL and to allow an assessment of benefits and risks. Epinephrine injection (1:1,000) and other appropriate agents used for the control of immediate allergic reactions must be immediately available should an acute anaphylactic reaction occur.


Swine Flu Pandemic Reaching Year Anniversary; Our Baby was Diagnosed with Swine Flu

How We Learned the Doctors Didn't Agree with the Media About Swine Flu

In December of 2009, our 15-month-old son was diagnosed with swine flu. His swine flu symptoms were similar to the regular flu, except he had a really bad cough and high fever. With all the media hype about swine flu pandemic and its devastating effects, I was terrified that our son was going to die or, at the very least, have some horrible long lasting effects as a result of having swine flu.

My friend works for the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and she was a walking, talking swine flu expert in our circle of mom friends. She was on ground zero, and we looked to her for the latest tips, advice, and warnings on the swine flu. She educated us on swine flu symptoms, the swine flu vaccine, the swine flu vaccine side effects, and how to diagnose swine flu in children. Our circle of mom friends found that the CDC Web site was a valuable resource to compare scientific fact to what we heard on the radio or television regarding the swine flu pandemic.

The CDC Web site also helped us prepare to take care of our families with insight regarding swine flu symptoms, the swine flu vaccine and other common questions many parents seemed to have about the swine flu. The most helpful section of the CDC Web site is a section all about emergency warning signs of the swine flu. This section discusses, in depth, how to know when to take your child to the emergency room. When we noticed that our son had a symptom on the list, rapid breathing, we immediately took him to the emergency room.

We had recently moved from Nashville, Tennessee to a small town in Missouri. There weren't enough vaccines for our town, so the swine flu vaccines were initially rationed out instead of being available to the general public. By the time more swine flu vaccines were available, our son had already been diagnosed with the swine flu and was in recovery.

When I think back to what really scared my husband and me during our son's illness, it was the daily news tolls on swine flu death. The panic seemed to rise among us and our friends as more elderly and children were pronounced dead every day. The swine flu epidemic seemed to be sweeping our nation with a vengeance we couldn't quite imagine would ever touch our children.... but, as we soon learned, it did.

Here's what I learned about swine flu and how it stacked up against what my husband and I heard on the news about the global swine flu epidemic:

1. The swine flu is basically just the flu. What I didn't know before my son was diagnosed with the swine flu is that there are dozens, if not hundreds, of influenza variations. You might remember that a few years ago, the bird flu was all the rage and America was on alert for that new frightening influenza strain. In our case, our son had all the same symptoms we recognized as the regular flu, with the addition of some respiratory illness - which we learned was very common in patients diagnosed with the swine flu.

2. Don't get caught up in the hype. When we went into the emergency room with our son, my husband and I were shocked at all the warning posters, masks, and ominous cautionary signs regarding the swine flu. A child wasn't even allowed in the emergency room unless he was actually the patient. When we checked into the emergency room, we didn't even sit down - the nurses took us right back to the pediatric rooms. That was very scary and we started to worry that what we thought was a bad cough could actually be something much worse.

3. Statistics can prove anything. When we spoke with the doctors, they calmly assessed our son and stated "he probably has the swine flu" and then proceeded to tell us how to treat him. Our brains were frozen in time on the one phrase - swine flu. I couldn't understand why they were so calm about it. I mean, for goodness sakes, this was the swine flu we were talking about! The doctors explained the point I made in bullet one, above, that the swine flu is just a variation of the regular flu. The doctors explained that any type of flu always affects the young, old, and defenseless the worst. The doctors also explained that the death tolls being discussed on the news were paltry compared to overall regular flu deaths each day. One doctor even said "focusing in on this particular strain of flu just gives the media something to talk about."

4. Swine flu tests were expensive. When our son was diagnosed with the swine flu, the doctors used the word probably. I waited for them to call the CDC, don masks and moon gear, and quarantine us for a week while they tested our poor baby to find out for sure. To our surprise, the doctor and nurse just waved their hand around toward the other ER rooms and said that the swine flu test was very expensive and, since the regular flu season was over, the CDC best practice was to treat every flu patient as if they had been tested and were positive for the swine flu. We were shocked, to say the least, but also tremendously relieved. If it was that common, then surely our son would be ok.

5. Early diagnosis is best. This is my overall motto as a parent. If we have a problem (of any kind, really) I want to identify the problem immediately and get to work fixing it. Fixing the swine flu was not as tough as we had heard on the news. We learned that the swine flu primarily affects the respiratory system. The tests the doctor did order revealed that our son also had a slight case of pneumonia. We were prescribed antibiotics and additional medication for his nebulizer, and we were sent back home to let him rest. The swine flu virus ran its course and we watched for warning signs and symptoms of an uncontrollable fever, dehydration, or that his condition was not improving with rest and home care.

Our son recovered from the swine flu in about the same amount of time he would from the regular flu or a bad cold. He is a happy, healthy, child and seems to have no lasting effect or side effects from having had the swine flu. We are thankful beyond words.

Universal flu vaccine undergoes first human trials


Last updated at 15:31 19 July 2007

A pioneering universal flu vaccine is undergoing its first round of clinical testing on humans.

The vaccine, developed by Ghent University and Flanders Institute for Biotechnology in Belgium, will be able to provide protection against all 'A' strains of the virus that causes human influenza, including the deadly pandemic strains.

As flu strains mutate the vaccines that protect against them also have to be changed every year.

This means that at-risk patients must be vaccinated against the latest strains annually.

This constant mutation has also meant that, unlike polio, hepatitis B or measles, no such universal vaccine for the flu virus has yet been developed.

The breakthrough reearch is based on the manipulation of one protein on the surface of the influenza virus, the so-called M2 protein.

M2 remains unchanged in all known human flu viruses including the strains that caused the pandemics in the last century.

Researchers at the university have already successfully tested the vaccine it on mice and other laboratory animals and results show that the M2 vaccine provided total protection against 'A' strains of flu, without side effects.

Phase I clinical trials on humans are now underway with small samples of the new vaccine being given to a group of healthy people in order to provide an initial insight into the vaccine's effect on the human immune system.

The goal for this vaccine is that two inoculations would be sufficient to protect people against all 'A' strains of flu.

Evy Vierstraete, a spokesperson for the Flanders Institute said that if all goes well with this first trial, the next stage will be to test the vaccine on patients already infected with the flu virus.

She said: "If all goes well with these tests then we could expect a working vaccine for the general population within three to five years."

An average of 5 per cent of the world's population is annually infected with the flu virus with around 3 to 5 million hospitalizations and 250,000 to 500,000 deaths per year.

Besides the annual flu epidemics, there is the possibility of a pandemic, which occurs every 10 to 30 years and causes more severe disease symptoms and a higher mortality rate.

During the pandemic caused by the Spanish flu in 1918-1919, the number of deaths worldwide even rose to over 50 million.

THE flu vaccine crisis that gripped the country last year left one innocent Perth toddler with debilitating brain damage. Now, 12 months on, Saba Button's parents break their silence and tell how things went horribly wrong.

At the main entrance of Princess Margaret Hospital, there are five children frozen in time. Cast in bronze and hauntingly dressed in crinkled Victorian outfits, the statues watch silently as visitors pass by.

One still boy lugs a teddy bear, another child sleeps in an iron cot, a third toddler drags his home made wagon, while an older girl with flowing hair tries to run away. All of them are lifelike, yet cursed never to move again. The last child near the northern sliding door is a small girl kneeling respectfully.

Look at her sad eyes long enough and you can almost hear her whisper: “Please Mum, take me home to the life I once knew.’’

This time last year Mick Button would be hard up knowing where to park his car at PMH. He’d only ever been there once and that was a false alarm. He and his family were a picture of health and he’d been blessed with a lucky life riding waves all over the world.

After leaving school in the northern suburbs, he set up Santosha surfboards, before becoming instrumental in bringing the Rusty Surfwear label to Australia. As the brand boomed in the late ’90s, Mick had plenty of opportunities to travel the world searching for that ultimate swell.

"Good waves and good weather somewhere I could surf in my boardies," he quips with an infectious laugh.
For years he bobbed through life much like he did as he sat silhouetted against the horizon waiting for that next big set -- if he missed an opportunity, another one would come along sooner or later. No dramas.

It was an unbreakable bond. He was happy being Mick Button. Sun, surf, sand, saltwater, single.

Then nine years ago a happy girl living in Scarborough took Mick’s mind off the waves for a while. Kirsten Carty’s sandy hair and sparkling eyes soon had Mick sliding off his board and slipping into a more serious relationship.

The polite, well spoken primary school teacher taught Mick there was more to life then a south-westerly swell.
In 2005 they were married on Rottnest Island by Monsignor O’Shea at the little Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity.

With 180 family and friends squeezing out of the side doors, they exchanged vows as the sun shone on their lives ahead.

Two years later a son, Cooper, was born and on April 26, 2009, Kirst and Mick welcomed a daughter, Saba, into their happy house.

"She looked so much like her brother," Kirst recalls. "A nice easy birth. Just a 3½ hour labour. When she was born I looked at her and put her on my chest. My daughter.

"And when she came home she was such a good little girl. Happy, healthy and she made it so easy for us. She slept twice a day and would hardly stir at night apart from when I picked her up for a breastfeed. We were very lucky."

Mick thought he’d been living the dream as he grew up chasing the endless summers, but it didn’t come close to how content he felt as a new father and family man, sitting in the shallows splashing with his kids.

As young surfers ran past him on their way to the waves, Mick smiled in the sparkle of the shore wash with Cooper "born on my birthday, best birthday present ever" and Saba "she’s daddy’s girl, you know".

But he still loved a wave and when an invitation to a friend’s Bali wedding arrived in March last year the couple thought it would be a good chance for an overseas family holiday by the beach with the kids.

Around the same time Kirst also received another letter in the mail, a warning from the WA Department of Health about the upcoming influenza season.

"We believed at the time in immunisation and we saw the flu vaccination as part of that," she says. "The letter said flu vaccination was the right thing to do to protect our children."

The 2010 seasonal influenza strain would also protect against the human swine flu, which had emerged in 2009.

These details were all explained in the letter.

What wasn’t in the document was that one of the vaccines, CSL’s Fluvax, had shown side
effects during its clinical trials. Almost 300 children from six months to nine years old were tested by CSL.

Adverse reactions included high irritability, rhinitis, fever and temperatures above 37.5C. More than a fifth of them reported vomiting and diarrhoea. All these reactions were higher than previous years. Vomiting and diarrhoea had never been noted before.

As the Buttons enjoyed WA’s warm autumn weather by the beach, the 2010 vaccination program was officially launched on Friday, March 19. That weekend the State Government began an advertising campaign encouraging parents to vaccinate their children.

And so they did. But within days there were problems.

On Wednesday, March 31, in the tiny Wheatbelt town of Wickepin, nine children were vaccinated and six of them suffered reactions. One child was taken to Narrogin Hospital.

Wickepin Health Service reported the issue to the Wheatbelt public health nurse who, the next day, emailed the State Government’s Communicable Disease Control Directorate (CDCD) with her concerns. She was told not to worry.

A week later the senior nurse from the Central Immunisation Clinic in Rheola St, West Perth, contacted the CDCD. She reported "getting phone calls from parents regarding adverse reactions to the free flu vaccine. High fever and vomiting approximately five hours post vaccination". This was different to previous years when the Rheola St clinic had very few "adverse events following immunisation".

The next day, on Friday, April 9, tragedy struck in Queensland. Two year old twin Ashley Epapara died a day after having the flu vaccination. Over the next week SA and Victorian authorities reported cases of adverse vaccine reactions to the Therapeutic Goods Authority (TGA) _ Australia’s regulatory agency for medical drugs and devices _ and WA’s CDCD.

Meanwhile, spot fires continued to ignite locally. On Monday, April 12, nurses in PMH’s Emergency Department reported six suspected reactions, including seizures, to the seasonal vaccine.

Panicked parents in Geraldton called the CDCD after their children had febrile reactions to the vaccine and the Rheola St clinic again contacted the CDCD, reporting three more phone calls from worried parents with sick children, post Fluvax. The CDCD contacted the TGA.

Over the next five days those spot fires formed a fire front. By Saturday, April 17, there had been 101 presentations of babies, toddlers and children to PMH’s ED suffering adverse reactions.

Despite the chaotic scenes at PMH and worried parents reporting their concerns to state health departments, no official communication had filtered into the suburbs, so Perth GPs were still administering the vaccine.
And at 12.30pm on Monday, April 19, protective mum Kirst Button held 11 month old Saba as her GP’s nurse gave the healthy toddler 0.25ml of CSL’s Fluvax in her left arm.

"In the car on the way home, Saba cried and seemed upset, which was unusual for her," Kirst says. "But once we got home she was happy. She went to bed at 2pm and slept for two hours, which was normal. It was a relaxed afternoon. She ate all her dinner, we gave her a light shower and I dressed her for bed before heading out for pilates."

Mick gave Saba a bottle at 6pm and soon his angel was asleep. About 7.30pm he heard a moaning sound crackle through the baby monitor so he went upstairs to check.

"She was lying on her stomach, so I put her on her side just in case she was uncomfortable," Mick says. "Then I went back downstairs and five minutes later she was moaning again. This time I thought I’d pick her up and give her a cuddle. That’s when I knew there was a problem."

Saba slumped in his arms like a doll and her little body was boiling. Mick called his wife, who had popped in to see her parents on the way home from pilates. When her daughter’s moans made it through the speaker phone, Kirst broke down. "I was hysterical," she says. She had never heard Saba sound so helpless.

Mick called an ambulance "I just knew something was wrong" while Kirst hurried home.

When she arrived, she scooped her limp baby girl into her arms. "Sabi, Sabi, Mamma’s here, Mamma’s here." No response. She took her temperature _ 40.2C. It should be 36.5C.

Five minutes later the ambulance arrived and after some routine checks Saba was on her way to PMH. Kirst sat in the back with Saba _ who now had diarrhoea _ on her chest. And there was this strange sound that wouldn’t stop:
"Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep."

Mick looked around from the passenger seat.

"What the hell’s that?" he quizzed.

"It’s her heart rate," one ambulance officer said, gravely. Almost 238 beats a minute _ three times the 70-80 beats of a healthy 11 month old.

A decision was made to alert PMH and when they arrived there was a team of doctors and nurses waiting. Mick and Kirst heard someone say, "Oh, it’s another Fluvax baby", which was confusing because they knew nothing about other immunisation problems.

Saba was given fluids, Panadol and placed in an Emergency Department cubicle where her symptoms changed for the worse. She vomited twice and was twitching and restless. Kirst also noted Saba wouldn’t respond to her and was going cross-eyed.

"Something’s not right," she thought, so she rang for a nurse. After two hours it was decided Saba should stay overnight and she was transferred to Ward 9A.

"Saba was still shaking and twitching," says Kirst. "And in the ward she started doing a slow rhythmic movement with both her arms and legs. The arms flicked up and the legs rolled out. The movements were all in unison."

A doctor arrived and suspected these were unusual seizures.

Over the next three hours Saba was given two different doses of seizure medication. At about 1.30am she started to settle, so Mick went home to relieve Kirst’s parents who were looking after Cooper. Kirst stayed beside her baby girl hoping she was healing.

Even though she was totally fixated on her daughter, Kirst was aware of how alone she felt. The ward was quiet and dark. She had always thought she would do anything to protect Saba, yet the most she could do right now was just be with her as she slept _ whispered promises and prayers from a mother to her child in a ward of woe.

Within the hour, the silence was broken as Saba started having more intense seizures. And this time she was struggling to breathe. The doctor and nurses decided Saba needed to be in the Intensive Care Unit.

"I was scared as things began to get worse," Kirst recalls. "I rang Mick and told him to come back."

At 4.30am Saba was transferred to ICU. This seemed unbelievable how had it come to this? Less than 10 hours ago their cheeky-eyed daughter was laughing with her brother. Now she was hooked up to machines to keep her alive.

She was intubated and hooked up to a ventilator to help her breathe. A naso-gastric tube to prevent vomiting and a catheter to empty her bladder were inserted. Saba was given a variety of drugs to control the seizures. Blood tests revealed damage to her liver, kidneys and bone marrow and an MRI and CAT scan later showed the enormity of her brain damage.

The following morning, Wednesday, April 21, Mick and Kirst’s world slipped off its axis as they were given a deathly diagnosis.

From the moment they had stepped into the ambulance with Saba, they felt safe. They were going to hospital, they would be with doctors who could look after their precious daughter. The public perception of doctors is they will calm you, cure you, heal you. But there are times when the 3531 full time doctors in WA have to deliver bad news as well. And on that Wednesday morning, paediatric neurologist, Dr Simon Williams, had to take on a job for Judas.

He had been on call for both neurology and the Acquired Brain Injury Team when Saba
arrived at PMH. After examining her, he feared the worst. In a small windowless room near ICU, Dr Williams and another doctor and two nurses explained that Saba had suffered multi-organ failure and global brain injury. They didn’t expect her to live. If she did survive, she might never walk or talk again.

It was at that moment Kirst cracked. After two days of silent, private hope, she finally broke down and fell to the floor howling, as Mick and her brother, Adam, tried to comfort her. But soon her sobs of surrender turned to cries of disbelief.

"No, no, no, NO! They won’t take my baby. They won’t take her!"

Even though Mick and Kirst were both distraught, the words "if she does survive" gave them a glimmer of hope.
They were determined to do everything possible to keep Saba alive.

"These people in ICU are amazing," Mick says. "I can’t say enough good things about them, especially Dr Williams. They deal with radical stuff every day and part of what they do is to prepare you for things you may not want to face. But they didn’t realise we are fighters and so is Saba."

And their fragile baby would need to punch above her weight because no matter how much belief Mick and Kirst had in her, only Saba could keep herself alive.

"When they sat us down in that room, Saba was on full life support because the level of drugs she needed to control the seizures were smashing her kidneys and liver," Mick explains.

"When we said we were up for the fight they said, ‘OK, there are three things that are worrying us her kidneys, her liver and her breathing. We can help her kidneys and liver with medication but we can’t make her breathe. She has to do it herself’."

So "Operation Save Saba" began. A decision was made that Saba was never to be left alone in hospital. Never. Ever.

Kirst and Mick alternated night shifts so the other could spend time with Cooper at home, and there was a queue of family and friends who offered to jump in and stay by her bedside.

"A roster was set up by a friend for people to sit with Saba overnight," recalls Kirst. "Everyone agreed. Saba was never to be left alone. In the first few days, all the girls sitting with her would sing, talk or read to try to stimulate her and bring her back to us.

"We felt so loved and supported by family and friends throughout this really lonely, sad, empty, weird time of disbelief."

Soon the walls around her bed were covered in messages of hope and visitors had to wait at reception to see her, such were the numbers who wanted to sing, read or just talk to the silent little girl.

Saba was not only surrounded by love but also by specialists. As well as her doctors in PMH, Mick and Kirst were given clearance from the hospital to invite alternative therapists into the ICU.

"The kids have visited a naturopath and chiropractor since they were born," Kirst says. "So from the third day in ICU, Saba’s acupuncturist, chiropractor and other healers came in and they began working with her. We truly believe this lifted Saba."

On Friday, April 23, Saba showed some strength. She was able to take a few soft breaths in tandem with the breathing machine. It may not have been time to celebrate but three days later there was an excuse to feel good. It was Saba’s first birthday.

"We decorated her rooms with balloons," Kirst recalls. "One of my friends made cupcakes and everyone came in to give her a kiss. We also had a little party with friends at PMH it was a bit of a weird feeling, but we just wanted to celebrate that Saba was still with us.

"My sister, Shannon, asked everyone to make a cardboard heart with a message or a prayer that we could put up all over her room in ICU. This ended up being amazing. People brought all sorts of things to put close to her and it ended up looking like a shrine."

Saba spent 11 days in ICU and almost eight weeks in hospital. She has been back to PMH
11 times in the past year because she continues to suffer seizures and respiratory problems. Three times Mick and Kirst have been forced to call an ambulance to make sure she gets to hospital in time. The longest stretch she has been home is seven weeks.

Saba’s brain injury is from prolonged seizures. She can’t eat by mouth at the moment and it’s not certain whether she will have much movement or be able to talk again. Despite their ordeal, Mick and Kirst continually emphasise theirs is not a sob story but rather a long slow journey.

"We are very positive people," says Mick. "So we just try to surround Saba with lots of love and positive energy. She feeds off that, I can see it when I’m with her. The two things your kids need are love and security. If you give them that, then they’ll do the rest. We’re just trying to do that."

Just after 5.30pm, on Thursday, April 22 _ three days after Saba was rushed to hospital _ then WA Health Minister Kim Hames announced the suspension of the flu vaccination program for children under five. Next day the Federal Government extended the halt across Australia.

An independent inquiry was ordered by the State Government last May. In August, former WA chief medical officer Bryant Stokes handed down his report that found "serious deficiency" in reporting processes and slow responses by both state and federal authorities. Recommendations were made, but not all of them have been followed through.

The TGA dismissed the Stokes report. Its own review failed to identify why there was a spike in febrile convulsions and why the adverse reactions occurred.

CSL, the manufacturer of Fluvax, released a statement last month, which said: "Despite extensive scientific investigations involving Australia’s TGA, the US Food and Drug Administration and other international experts, CSL is yet to establish the root cause of the association between its 2010 Fluvax vaccine and the unexpected increase in febrile reactions. Investigations are continuing."

The Fluvax brand is no longer being used in Australia for vaccinating children under five.

Last week, Saba was back in hospital again. Ward 9a, Room 12. Lying next to her on a single pull-out plastic mattress was her dad. Whenever she’s in PMH, Mick Button does the night shift and then heads off to work in the morning, for Kirst to take over.

Mick reckons he gets some sleep but it’s doubtful. For almost 10 minutes, unbeknown to Mick, I look through the door at father and vacant-eyed daughter. If she dribbles he gets up and wipes her face. If she slips down the bed, he gets up and makes her comfortable again. Even if she’s lying peacefully, he still gets up and nuzzles her face, kisses her cheeks and whispers in her ear, to remind her that she’s NEVER alone. Never, ever. And she never will be.

The following essay was part of my final quiz to achieve my herbalist certificate: I KNOW that this will help everyone and the ingredients are usually in most people's homes already without going shopping.

I decided to choose three herbs used for the treatment of H1N1 flu virus which is currently going around in the schools and businesses.


#1 Oil of Oregano: Oregano grows easily in the home garden. It can be used in cooking or medicinally. People typically like it on pizza. However, medicinally, it is great to use in a stronger form because it is a natural antibiotic.



Henriette has an article stating that Oregano and Marjoram is the same thing. I never heard that before, and that needs researching to validity.


Common oregano is botanically known as Origanum vulgare, Greek for "joy of the mountains." It can be found growing wild on mountainsides of Greece and other Mediterranean countries where it is an herb of choice. Also known as wild marjoram, the oregano plant is a perennial which grows up to two feet tall and bears tiny leaves which lend a pungent aroma and strong flavor to a variety of savory foods.


I personally love the flavor or oregano. I grow it myself in a flowerbox. I also bought 3 bottles of Oregano oil for my ‘just in case’ stash.


HENRIETTE lists oregano in the mint family as an anti- inflammatory, and if you don’t have any, you can exchange it with a variety of other herbs in the same family.

As with the group of simple rose family astringents, a lot of the mint family (Lamiaceae) plants can be used interchangeably. So if somebody tells you that you can use oregano (Origanum sp.) for something -- and you're all out, try marjoram (Origanum majorana), basil (Ocimum basilicum) thyme (Thymus sp.), savory (Satureja sp.), hyssop (Hyssopus sp.), desert hyssop (Hyptis sp.) or monarda (Monarda sp.) instead.


An article states that oregano has an additional benefit to women:

Researchers have found a variety of benefits in pure oregano and extracted oil of oregano. Oregano contains quercetin, an ingredient that may help fight ovarian and breast cancer. One caveat: the oregano must come from the actual species of the plant, not the trace quantities found in most products we buy. True oregano grows wild in Mediterranean regions, such as Greece, and it is from this source one can extract the medicinally potent oil of oregano. So try to get the plant, or oil derived from the plant, at your local health food store.

This whole article is a keeper and worth reading in its entirety:



A Complete Guide To The Healing Art

© 1995 Kathi Keville, Mindy Green
(Excerpted from Aromatherapy, Crossing Press)


"Sweet marjoram" is native to Asia but is a naturalized citizen of Europe, where singers preserve their voices with the honeyed tea. It was used in weddings to symbolize honor, happiness, and love. A marjoram species was probably the "hyssop" of the Bible, used for purification. It is an antioxidant food preserver.

Family: Lamiaceae (Labiatae)
Extraction: Distilled from leaves. Oleoresin. The odor is sweet, herby and a little warm, hinting of camphor.
Medicinal Action: A strong sedative, marjoram eases muscle spasms, tics, menstrual cramps, headaches (especially migraines) and stiff joints. Treats spasmodic coughs, colds, flu, laryngitis and hypertension, and is a light laxative. Also helps normalize blood pressure.

Cosmetic/Skin Use: Use marjoram on bruises, burns and inflammations, and to treat fungal and bacterial infections.

Emotional Attribute: Marjoram helps those who feel emotionally unstable or are prone to hysteria or irritability, especially due to outside stimulus. The old texts say it works so well that overuse deadens the emotions. Modern aromatherapists use marjoram to ease loneliness, rejection and a "broken heart."

Associated Oils:

Oregano (O. vulgare) --Closely related botanically, the division between the oreganos and marjorams is often hazy. However, true oregano is much more irritating to the skin. Although it is effective against respiratory, genital, urinary and intestinal infections, we suggest using less irritating oils.

Spanish Marjoram (Thymus mastichina) --Also called "wild marjoram," this North African thyme is antiseptic to upper-respiratory infection, but is not a sedative or muscle relaxant like sweet marjoram. It is also much harsher and less expensive. Several other species of thyme are also sold as "marjoram."

Spanish Oregano (T. capitatus) --Called origan in the perfume trade, this is really a thyme with an oregano-like scent. It can irritate skin and should be used very cautiously, if at all.

#2 Garlic - easily available in all food stores, also easily grown at home in the garden. It can be used in cooking, eaten raw like candy, or crushed to make tea.


MOORE: For acute cases of colds, flus, or other respiratory problems, Moore recommends making capsules with 2 parts Echinacea root, 2 parts garlic, 2 parts Osha root and 2 parts cayenne. Empty capsules can easily be purchased through popular herb companies.


HENRIETTE: Joyce Keeler writes this wonderful personal anecdote which she used to get rid of flu and sore throat that just wouldn’t go away:

Joyce Keeler, Jan 1996, herbalist

Date: Tue, 2 Jan 1996 17:02:15 -0500
From: "J. Keeler" <jkeeler.MOOSE.UVM.EDU>
Subject: Re: Garlic Syrup

> Garlic Syrup- Peel about a half pound of garlic and put into quart jar. Cover with honey.
> After 14 days the honey syrup is usable for cough syrup. The honey can be used to baste chicken and the garlic can be used for anything.

Last year I had strep throat and called my homeopathic practitioner for advice. I had vaguely remembered something she had said months previously about garlic being a very powerful antibiotic. I am somewhat allergic to any forms of penicillin so I was hoping for a substitute. She gave me one that worked in two days. It was a container, like one of those small honey jars with 1/3 lemon juice, 1/3 honey and 1/3 fine minced or garlic. She said she had been up in Maine on house-calls and had a flu that just would not go away and she remembered to take this concoction and it worked. So, you may wish to add the lemon juice. I did not allow it to ferment---I took it straight away and as I said in two days, that terrible strep throat pain was gone. PLEASE NOTE: You take small portions on a spoon and chew up and swallow the garlic/honey/lemon mixture.

HENRIETTE writes this anecdote herself because she suffered from flu symptoms and planned to teach while sick. (Not a good idea – it spreads the germs to others) But, this is an excellent remedy:


Syrup flu pills.

Posted May 13th, 2007 by Blog - Henriette

o Influenza

I got hit with a sore throat Friday morning a week ago, and didn't do anything about it all day Friday - except for drinking lots of hot liquids, and going to bed early.
On Saturday things were a lot worse, so I made a flu tea. Mmmm. It contained 6 roots, plus roselle:

o lomatium (Lomatium dissectum), as it's a very good virus killer

o licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), cos it's soothing and good for coughs

o Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia) (organically grown, of course), cos it's a good immune system booster

o elecampane (Inula helenium), cos it's very good for coughs

o calmus (Acorus calamus), to bring a bit of heat to the mix

o marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), cos its mucilage soothes things nicely

o roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa), cos that's just loaded with vitamin C, and it makes the tea a pretty deep red.

And I drank that tea all day Saturday, and went to bed early.

On Sunday things had calmed down a tad, but not quite enough - and I was supposed to teach, a hundred plus kilometers thataway --> , for the week, starting on Monday.

So I threw the tea herbs into the blender, sifted things, and made syrup pills from the finer powder. The coarser remains of the tea blend still serve as a tea blend, although it's difficult to tell which herbs they were, now.

The syrup I used (mainly cos I didn't want to bother with heating honey etc.) for making these pills was hanging around in my fridge from last summer (I didn't want to bother with making a simple syrup, either): it was the blue spruce + mugo pine syrup, which has a nice sour tang.

For pill making, the moistness of the syrup+powder should be such that you can take a handful of the mix, squeeze it, and it'll show where your fingers were on the now oblong ball, which isn't wet enough to let any liquid drip off - not even one drop.

The pills: it's easiest to make small pyramids by squeezing smidgens off that pre-squeezed ball between the tips of the thumbs and forefingers. Making hare-dropping type round pills just won't work - not after the first five or so, anyway, cos this mess sticks to your hands.

Drop the pills onto baking paper and, once you've formed all your pills, put the sheet into your oven at 40 C or so. If your oven is precise, that is. Check by putting a thermometer into a mugful of water, and set it to 40 C. If the thermometer shows 95 C the next morning (clunky old ovens are very much less than precise in lower temperatures) you know that your oven is useless for anything below 100 C.
You can also use a dehydrator: set that to 40 C, too.
Or let things air-dry, covered up to keep the flies away. But: the precise oven and the dehydrator means that your pills will be done in about 3 hours, whereas air drying means you'll have to wait for your pills for a day or two.

And I'll just say that the tang of the syrup complements the root mix extremely well. Y-u-m for these pills.

HEALTHWORLD: Dr. Leo Galland has high praise for garlic:

The world's most extensively studied spice is garlic. Its medicinal use predates recorded history. Garlic is mentioned in the earliest Vedic medical documents, written in India over five thousand years ago. During an epidemic of plague in Marseilles, in 1721, four condemned criminals were enlisted to bury the dead. None of them contracted plague. It seems that they sustained themselves by drinking a cocktail of crushed garlic in cheap wine, which came to be called vinaigre des quatre voleurs (vinegar of the four thieves). In 1858, Louis Pasteur demonstrated garlic's antibiotic activity. The herb was used by Albert Schweitzer for the treatment of amoebic dysentery at his clinic in Africa. Antimicrobial activity of garlic has been repeatedly demonstrated against many species of bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. In addition, garlic lowers cholesterol and blood pressure and may protect against cancer. The dose of garlic needed to obtain significant benefit is at least ten grams (about three small cloves) per day. Garlic also has a great immune-enhancing effect, stimulating activity of natural killer cells in healthy people and in people with AIDs. AIDS patients taking five to ten grams of aged garlic (equivalent to two to three small cloves) per day developed normal natural killer cell activity after twelve weeks which was associated with clinical improvement.

Onion, garlic's closest edible relative, has also been widely used for medicinal purposes. Although it lacks the potency of garlic, it can be consumed it much larger quantity, so that its antimicrobial benefits may be equal to those of garlic if consumed regularly.

Turmeric, a major ingredient in curry powder, is a natural antibiotic that relieves intestinal gas by lowering the numbers of gas forming bacteria, has antifungal activity and has been traditionally used for relieving inflammation. The effective dose is about one gram per day.

#3 - Echinacea .

Moore: states that Echinacea deteriorates in a powdered form so to keep it more or less in a coarser grind.


Henriette recommends Echinacea for use whenever there is a fever, and she posted this combination specifically for flu:


o lomatium (Lomatium dissectum), as it's a very good virus killer

o licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), cos it's soothing and good for coughs

o Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia) (organically grown, of course), cos it's a good immune system booster

o elecampane (Inula helenium), cos it's very good for coughs

o calmus (Acorus calamus), to bring a bit of heat to the mix

o marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), cos its mucilage soothes things nicely

o roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa), cos that's just loaded with vitamin C, and it makes the tea a pretty deep red.


Healthworld has a great article about healing influenza: He states that Echinacea is an anti-microbial and a Lymphatic. I used Echinacea at the first hint of a sniffly nose or cold symptoms. As a result I am rarely sick. It knocks out any germs quickly.



Herbs, Supplements May Fight Swine Flu

Osteoporosis Drugs Kill Swine Flu Virus

Friday, August 14, 2009 10:13 AM

Two existing drugs used to treat osteoporosis may be effective in killing influenza viruses, including the new H1N1 swine flu and the H5N1 bird flu viruses, researchers in Hong Kong have found.

The two drugs are pamidronate and zoledronate, which are marketed by Novartis AG under the brand names Aredia and Reclast, respectively.

In their experiment, the researchers exposed human cells that had been infected with the influenza viruses to the two drugs.

They observed that the drugs triggered extra production of a type of white blood cell called yd-T cells, which went on to kill human cells that were infected with the flu viruses.

Flu viruses can only replicate in living human or animal cells and killing infected cells would stop the viruses from replicating, the researchers said.

Professor Lau Yu-lung at the University of Hong Kong's pediatrics and adolescent medicine department described the infected human cells as "factories that will produce viruses."

"These drugs attack the viruses specifically ... This approach kills the factories that are producing viruses."

Malik Peiris, also part of the research team, said the drugs could enhance immune responses of the human body.

That was especially important as flu viruses mutate constantly, which reduces the efficacy of vaccines, he added.

The researchers plan to move next into animal and then human clinical testing.




Somebody asked if we can protect ourselves from the Swine Flu.


There is at least 1 thing we can do that is good. It is called Zeolife. It is natural old lava flows that exists in many places on the planet. We happen to have the highest grade of it here in our county in Eastern Oregon that absorbs the most amount of toxins and heavy metals.

Our chiropractor and his brother have started to mine it and make a product out of it called Nature’s Miracle Mineral.


What it does it is it pulls toxins out of our bodies and heavy metals like mercury from old fillings in our teeth. It also absorbs radiation and saved the life of those taking it in Chernobyl when they had their nuclear eruption there.


It also makes your body more alkaline. It kicks the body into healing itself and heals all kinds of things by getting rid of toxins and getting rid off too much acid in the body.

Most here in the West are too acid because of our diet, we need to eat an 80% alkaline diet and 20% acid. Most of us do the opposite.

Alkaline foods are veggies and fruit. Acid; meat, bread, sugar, coffee, alcohol among other things.


It also gives your body minerals. Our chiropractor says minerals are our spark plugs and when your body gets the minerals it needs it kick starts it to heal itself and people get more energy.


It has cured viruses, fungus, aches and pains, arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, gout, heartburn, cancer, tumors, gangrene bleedings , addictions, gluten intolerance and all kinds of things.


There was a study done in Norway on 65 people with terminal cancer. 51 of them became cancer free after taking this stuff. It has cured both cancer and tumors in both dogs and people.

I have heard several people with addictions saying it got rid of their cravings for drugs, alcohol etc.

1 woman who had had heartburn for 15 years was cured from it. Another one who had such bad acid reflux she could not lay dhow without throwing up got cured. She can lay down to sleep now.


It is most likely a very good protection for the swine flu too. Many here are not taking the swine flu vaccine but is using this instead.


Here is a link to my website where you can read more about it and also order.


If you start taking it it is good to start out with taking 1/8 of a teaspoon in a glass of water or juice and then gradually increase it till 1 teaspoon 3 times/day. You don’t want to detox too fast. It is not good. If you are taking prescription medicines you need to have at least7 hours in between taking this,

Our chiropractor suggested you take to the Zeolife at night and prescription medicines in the morning if you only take it once/day to start with and are using prescription medicines.

Do If Force Vaccinated

Dr Blaylock's List of suggestions on How to Reduce the Toxic Effects of the A/H1N1 Vaccine, is as follows:

1. Number one on the list says Dr Blaylock, is to bring a cold pack with you and place it on the site of the injection as soon as you can, as this will block the immune reaction. Once you get home, continue using a cold pack throughout the day. If you continue to have immune reactions the following day, have cold showers and continue with the cold press.

2. Take fish oil. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), one of the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements, is a potent immune suppressant. If you take high dose EPA you will be more susceptible to infections, because it is a powerful immune suppressant. However, in the case of an immune adjuvant reaction, you want to reduce it. Studies show that if you take EPA oil one hour before injecting a very powerful adjuvant called lipopolysaccharide (LPS), it would completely block the ability of the LPS to cause brain inflammation. Take a moderate dose everyday and more if needed to tame a cytokine storm.

3. <>Flavonoids are third on the list, namely curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid, particularly in a mixture. The curcumin and quercetin in particular have been found to block the ability of the adjuvants to trigger a long-term immune reaction. If you take it an hour before the vaccination, it should help dampen the immune reactions says Dr Blaylock.

4. Vitamin E, the natural form that is high in gamma-E will help dampen the immune reactions and reduces several of the inflammatory cytokines.

5. An important ingredient on the list is Vitamin C at a dose of 1000 mg, taken four times a day between meals. It is a very potent anti-inflammatory and should be taken in a buffered form, not as absorbic acid, says Dr Blaylock.

6. <> Also use astaxanthin as it's an anti-inflammatory. According to Dr Blaylock, fatal reactions to vaccines in aboriginal and African children occurred in those who were deficient in carotinoids, like astaxanthin. It is a good protection against the toxic effects of the vaccine.

7. Likewise, it was found that children who were deficient in zinc had a high mortality rate. Zinc is very protective against vaccine toxicity. (Do not use zinc mixed with copper however, as copper is a major trigger of free-radical generation according to Dr Blaylock).

8. Ensure you avoid all immune-stimulating supplements, such as mushroom extracts, whey protein and <>beta-glucan.

9. Take a multivitamin-mineral daily ? one that does not contain iron. This multivitamin-mineral is to make sure your body has plenty of B vitamins and selenium. Selenium, said Dr Blaylock, is very important for fighting viral infections and it reduces the inflammatory response to vaccines.

10. Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules, three times a day. (This was not mentioned during the show, but was posted at Dr Deagle's website, <>

11. What is very important is vitamin D3, which is the only 'vitamin' the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). It is a neural hormone, not really a vitamin says Dr Blaylock and helps if you are over-reacting immunologically by cooling down the reaction. Similarly, if you are under-reacting, it helps to boost your immune response. In addition it also protects against microorganism invasion.

Black people and those in colder climates are particularly deficient, so they will almost certainly require supplementation.

Dr Blaylock recommends that following vaccination it will help to keep the immune reaction under control if:

i) All children get 5,000 units a day for two weeks after the vaccine and then 2,000 a units a day thereafter;

ii) Adults get 20,000 units a day after the vaccine for two weeks, then 10,000 units a day thereafter;

iii) And with that adults should take 500-1000 mg of calcium a day and children under the age of 12 years should take 250 mg a day, as vitamin D works more efficiently in the presence of calcium.

12. Ensure you avoid all mercury-containing seafood or any other sources of mercury, as the heavy metal is a very powerful inducer of autoimmunity, is known to make people more susceptible to viral infections and will be in H1N1 vaccines.

13. Avoid the oils that significantly suppress immunity and increase inflammation - such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils.

14. Drink very concentrated white tea at least four times a day. It helps to prevent abnormal immune reactions.

15. Pop parsley and celery in a blender and drink 8 ounces of this mixture twice a day. Dr Blaylock says the parsley is very high in a flavonoid called apigenin and that celery is high in <>luteolin. Both are very potent in inhibiting autoimmune diseases, particularly the apigenin, so go and plant some parsley in your garden now.

Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed

By Dr. Mercola

According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall.


This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk.


In Australia, where the winter season has begun, Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than regular seasonal flu. "Most people, including children, will experience very mild symptoms and recover without any medical intervention," she said.


Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as many children in the coming year as regular influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six regular flu deaths seen among children in an average year in Australia.

“Cure the Disease, Kill the Patient”

Less than 100 children in the U.S. die each year from seasonal flu viruses.[iv] If we use Australia’s math, a very rough estimate would be another 100 children could potentially die of swine flu in the United States in the coming year.


If children are the first target group in the U.S. per Sebelius, that means we’re about to inject around 75 million children with a fast tracked vaccine containing novel adjuvants, including dangerous squalene, to prevent perhaps 100 deaths.


I’m not overlooking the tragedy of the loss of even one child to an illness like the H1N1 flu virus. But there can be no argument that unnecessary mass injection of millions of children with a vaccine containing an adjuvant known to cause a host of debilitating autoimmune diseases is a reckless, dangerous plan.

Why are Vaccinations Dangerous?

The presumed intent of a vaccination is to help you build immunity to potentially harmful organisms that cause illness and disease. However, your body’s immune system is already designed to do this in response to organisms which invade your body naturally.


Most disease-causing organisms enter your body through the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth, pulmonary system or your digestive tract – not through an injection.


These mucous membranes have their own immune system, called the IgA immune system. It is a different system from the one activated when a vaccine is injected into your body.


Your IgA immune system is your body’s first line of defense. Its job is to fight off invading organisms at their entry points, reducing or even eliminating the need for activation of your body’s immune system.


When a virus is injected into your body in a vaccine, and especially when combined with an immune adjuvant like squalene, your IgA immune system is bypassed and your body’s immune system kicks into high gear in response to the vaccination.


Injecting organisms into your body to provoke immunity is contrary to nature, and vaccination carries enormous potential to do serious damage to your health.

And as if Vaccines Weren’t Dangerous Enough on Their Own …

… imagine them turbocharged.


The main ingredient in a vaccine is either killed viruses or live ones that have been attenuated (weakened and made less harmful).


Flu vaccines can also contain a number of chemical toxins, including ethylene glycol (antifreeze), formaldehyde, phenol (carbolic acid) and even antibiotics like Neomycin and streptomycin.


In addition to the viruses and other additives, many vaccines also contain immune adjuvants like aluminum and squalene.


The purpose of an immune adjuvant added to a vaccine is to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to the vaccination. Adjuvants cause your immune system to overreact to the introduction of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.


Adjuvants are supposed to get the job done faster (but certainly not more safely), which reduces the amount of vaccine required per dose, and the number of doses given per individual.


Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns. Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of government and the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions from their vaccines.

Will There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?

The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.


The adjuvant? Squalene.

According to Meryl Nass, M.D., an authority on the anthrax vaccine,


“A novel feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster production of desired vaccine quantities.”


Novartis’s proprietary squalene adjuvant for their H1N1 vaccine is MF59. Glaxo’s is ASO3. MF59 has yet to be approved by the FDA for use in any U.S. vaccine, despite its history of use in other countries.


Per Dr. Nass, there are only three vaccines in existence using an approved squalene adjuvant. None of the three are approved for use in the U.S.

What Squalene Does to Rats

Oil-based vaccination adjuvants like squalene have been proved to generate concentrated, unremitting immune responses over long periods of time.


A 2000 study published in the American Journal of Pathology demonstrated a single injection of the adjuvant squalene into rats triggered “chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation,” also known as rheumatoid arthritis.


The researchers concluded the study raised questions about the role of adjuvants in chronic inflammatory diseases.

What Squalene Does to Humans

Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.


The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.


Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.


Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene. MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets.


The Department of Defense made every attempt to deny that squalene was indeed an added contaminant in the anthrax vaccine administered to Persian Gulf war military personnel – deployed and non-deployed – as well as participants in the more recent Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP).


However, the FDA discovered the presence of squalene in certain lots of AVIP product. A test was developed to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients, and a clear link was established between the contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who had been injected with the vaccine containing squalene.


A study conducted at Tulane Medical School and published in the February 2000 issue of Experimental Molecular Pathology included these stunning statistics:


“ … the substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%) GWS patients immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had antibodies to squalene.


In contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum antibodies to squalene.”


According to Dr. Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., a former principle research scientist for the government of Australia:


“… this adjuvant [squalene] contributed to the cascade of reactions called "Gulf War Syndrome," documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War.


The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, Sjorgren’s syndrome, chronic diarrhoea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.”

Post Vaccination Follow-Up Might as Well Be Non-Existent

There is virtually no science to support the safety of vaccine injections on your long-term health or the health of your children. Follow-up studies last on average about two weeks, and look only for glaring injuries and illnesses.


Autoimmune disorders like those seen in Gulf War Syndrome frequently take years to diagnose due to the vagueness of early symptoms. Complaints like headaches, fatigue and chronic aches and pains are symptoms of many different illnesses and diseases.


Don’t hold your breath waiting for vaccine purveyors and proponents to look seriously at the long-term health consequences of their vaccination campaigns.

What You Can Do to Protect Yourself and Your Family

Visit the National Vaccination Information Center (NVIC) site and join in the fight against mandatory swine flu vaccinations.


Educate yourself about influenza strains, vaccination risks, and the public health laws in your state that may require you or your children to undergo either mandatory vaccination or quarantine.


Take care of your health to reduce or eliminate your risk of contracting the flu. The key is to keep your immune system strong by following these guidelines:

Beneficial Uses:
Neem Leaf is a bitter tonic herb that nourishes and strengthens the digestive tract and is excellent for digestive disorders. Because it is believed to work wonders for the gastrointestinal tract (the passage along which food passes for digestion, including esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, small and large intestines), Neem is often taken to correct problems of the stomach and bowels and is effective in easing nausea, indigestion, gastritis, intestinal distress, hyperacidity, and peptic and duodenal ulcers. It also appears to reduce gastric secretions and aids in eliminating toxins and harmful bacteria from the system, thereby reducing stomach discomfort.

In the treatment of constipation, Neem Leaf is thought to be an effective purgative, especially in larger doses, but because it is also a soothing demulcent, it is not a harsh laxative, and its use is thought to regulate bowel function. It has also been used as an anthelmintic, which destroys and expels intestinal worms, perhaps because of its effective laxative and parasiticidal properties.

Neem Leaf is thought to support heart health in several ways. Recent studies have shown that the leaf extract, nimbidin, significantly lowers serum cholesterol levels, which helps to reduce blood clots. Nimbidin also causes blood vessels to dilate and may be responsible for lowering blood pressure and improving blood circulation. These actions are thought to reduce the risk for arteriosclerosis, stroke and heart attack. Moreover, it is also thought to slow rapid heartbeat and inhibit irregularities of the rhythms of the heart (arrhythmia).

Neem Leaf is said to improve many urinary tract disorders, especially burning urination. The leaf extract, sodium nimbidinate, acts as a diuretic, promoting the flow of urine, and this action helps to relieve phosphaturia (excess phosphates in the urine) and albuminuria (excess albumin in the urine), which can be caused by chronic congestion of the kidneys. The increased urine helps to flush the kidneys and further cleanse toxins from the system.

The tannin in Neem Leaf acts as an astringent, and as such, it has been used to remedy diarrhea and dysentery.

Neem Leaf is said to be one of the finest detoxicants available that clears pollutants from the body. The herb's antiseptic qualities are said to cleanse the blood of harmful bacteria that cause infections. Moreover, cleaner blood is invaluable for improving skin conditions, and Neem Leaf has been famous for its beneficial effects in cases of skin diseases and problems, including eczema, psoriasis, septic sores, infected burns, boils, acne and scrofula.

Supporting Neem's traditional role as an antibacterial (twig) toothbrush, modern studies confirm its important role in total oral hygiene. Neem's antimicrobial and antiseptic properties are effective in reducing plaque, caries, gingival scores and pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria in the mouth. A mouthwash prepared from Neem extract was found to inhibit the growth of Streptococcus mutans,

an oral pathogen (bacteria) responsible for dental caries and was effective in reversing mouth ulcers (incipient carious lesions).

Recent research is being conducted into the use of Neem Leaf for diabetes. A number of insulin-dependent diabetics were able to reduce their insulin considerably when treated with Neem Leaf extract and Neem oil. The general impression is that Neem may enhance insulin receptor sensitivity and may work well on Type 2 diabetics.

Neem Leaf is a virtual living pharmacy and is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal. Its quercetin content (a polyphenolic flavonoid) helps to combat infections and certain fungi. Neem is believed to destroy the fourteen most common fungi that infect the human body, such as athlete's foot, nail fungus, intestinal tract fungi and a fungus that is part of the normal mucous flora that may get out of control and lead to lesions in the mouth, vagina, skin, hands and lungs.

As an antiviral, Neem Leaf has been used to combat smallpox, chicken pox, and recent tests have shown that it may be effective against herpes virus and the viral DNA polymerase of hepatitis- B virus.

Neem has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat malarial fevers, and recent experiments have shown that one of the Neem's components, gedunin, is as effective as quinine against malaria. It is also used to control trypanosomiasis (African sleeping sickness or Chagas' disease), caused by a parasite that lives inside nerve and muscle cells. Neem is also considered effective in reducing fever, relieving pain and reducing inflammation.

Neem Leaf is said to be an expectorant that loosens and expels phlegm and congestion from the respiratory system and has been used to relieve dry cough, nasal congestion, bronchitis, laryngitis, pharyngitis, tuberculosis, pleurisy and other respiratory disorders.

Neem has been used effectively as a contraceptive since the first century B.C., when an eminent Ayurvedic physician wrote of its use for this purpose. It is a highly potent antibacterial, spermicidal, parasiticide, antifungal and antiviral, and in cases of sexual contact, current studies claim that it may help to prevent AIDS, gonorrhea, trichomonas, chlamydia and other sexually transmitted conditions. Whether ingested or used topically in the vagina, the leaves and oil have been effective in killing human spermatozoa.

Re: what you can do to counter the flu vaccine_Wheatgrass liguid and india medicine NEEM leaves

wheatgrass liguid

Wheatgrass is one of the two cereal grasses that have been found to contain the most balanced nutrient profile rich in micronutrients so critical to cellular rejuvenation. There are so many health benefits from this wonderful herb but here are the 10 most important reasons why wheatgrass rejuvenates and is called a miracle food:

Reason 1:Wheatgrass is a Super Food. This green food provides 17 kinds of revitalizing amino acids, 10 minerals,13 vitamins including A,C, E, and B complex, fiber, and over 100 types of enzymes. These nutrients are absorbed by the body in 20 minutes. Dr. Charles Schnabel reported that 15 pounds of wheatgrass is equivalent in nutritional value to 350 lbs. of the choicest vegetables.

Reason 2:Wheatgrass is Rich in Chlorophyll. It supports healthy blood production and improves blood circulation because of its similarity in molecular structure to the hemoglobin or red blood cells. An increase of blood cells results in better oxygenation to all the cells of the body.

Reason 3: Wheatgrass is Loaded with Antioxidants. It is rich in superoxide dismutase (SOD), a highly potent antioxidant enzyme that protects DNA from free radical damage.

Reason 4: Wheatgrass stimulates Cellular Repair and Rejuvenation. As research has shown,the essential nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory substances ( chlorophyll, SOD, the glycoproteins P4-D1 and D1-G1)protect the DNA from damage by free radicals and stimulates repair of damaged DNA.

Reason 5: Wheatgrass helps Fight and Prevent Cancer. The Chlorophyll has also been found by a Texas study to inhibit the activity of carcinogens and ( by a Hawaii study) to shield the body from the effects of carcinogens from smoked meats and food molds.

Reason 6. Wheatgrass Heals. It helps the human body heal and prevents infection.

In the American Journal of Surgery , Dr. Benjamin Gurskin recommended chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits and to help clear foul-smelling odors, neutralize strep infections, heals wounds, and hasten skin grafting. Gahan, Kline, &Finkle reported benefits of chlorophyll in the treatment of gastrointestinal ulcers and colitis.

Reason 7. Wheatgrass helps keep you Regular. It assists in adequate bowel movement as well as encourages elimination of toxins from the liver.

Reason 8. Wheatgrass has potent Anti-inflammatory action. It beats aspirin's anti-inflammatory effects through the combined potency of glycoproteins P4-D1 and D1-G1 and the antioxidant SOD.

Reason 9: Wheatgrass is a Good Deodorizer. The Chlorophyll in wheatgrass, when taken in adequate quantities, reduces or eliminates offensive body and breath odors caused by food, beverages, alcohol, tobacco, and metabollic changes.

Reason 10: Wheatgrass, known all over the world as "King of Alkaline Food," is a potent acid buster, acting as a powerful detergent that washes off excess acidity in the body. The result- stronger immune system, optimal healing capability and a balanced pH level.

Re: what you can do to counter the flu vaccine_Wheatgrass liguid and india medicine NEEM leaves Quote

While billions of cells in our body perform the task of respiration, they secrete acid metabolic by-products. Although these wastes are used for energy, they must not be allowed to build up. Our food, water and air are loaded with acid forming substances. Soft drinks, especially colas (pH 2.5), are extremely acid forming. Protein metabolism can cause excess phosphoric acid to form that can solidify as kidney stones. Even normal metabolism in our bodies creates acid wastes such as cholesterol, which build up in the body as arterial plaque. And if that isn’t serious enough, most modern medicines and prescription drugs produce acid in our bodies.

These acid wastes must be neutralized and eliminated from the body, otherwise the body’s functions can get impaired. The body works to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they act as poisons.

What is pH?
pH (potential of Hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The value of pH can be between 0 and 14. The intermediate value is 7 (water); values lower than 7 indicate acidic and values higher than 7 indicate alkaline condition. Ideally, pH level of our bodies should be between 7.2 and 7.6.

Diseases Caused by pH Imbalance
An acidic, anaerobic body environment caused by pH imbalance encourages breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. So you are susceptible to diseases caused by microorganisms. In addition, cancer thrives in an acidic and oxygen-deficient environment.

As we age, the cells of the body become thicker with the the acidic waste products. This causes vital nutrients and oxygen brought into the cells to decline and the toxins and metabolic waste products to build up. Apart from causing premature aging, they can cause high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation to the legs and feet), stroke, fatigue, excess weight and poor digestion

Re: what you can do to counter the flu vaccine_Wheatgrass liguid and india medicine NEEM leaves

Here we are in the year 2009 and many people are finding out for themselves the great benefits of wheatgrass (liquid chlorophyll).

Environmental Exposure: Toxins ingested, inhaled and applied to our skin

We live in a polluted world, like it or not. We breathe air currents that can come from across the globe – carrying toxic levels of petrochemicals (as from oil fires), high levels of carbon monoxide, cadmium and lead, and pesticides/insecticides, to mention a few.
We ingest food that is no longer “natural”, it contains nitrates, monosodium glutamate, artificial sweeteners, bleaching agents, synthetic chemicals, and ingredients to add color and flavor – all placing excessive strain on the major organs of detoxification including the liver, lungs, and kidneys.
The active ingredients in wheat grass juice are capable of cleansing the blood and neutralizing toxic substances.
According to Japanese scientists working with Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, M.D., enzymes and amino acids in young grass plants de-activated the carcinogenic and mutagenic effects of toxic chemicals including nitrogen compounds as those found in automobile exhaust. 2
It has been reported by Dr. Earp Thomas that one ounce of wheatgrass juice in a gallon of fluoridated water will convert the fluorine into a harmless calcium-phosphate-fluoride compound.
By placing a small amount (1/2 – 1 tsp. in 1 qt. of water) of wheatgrass juice concentrate into the water used for cleansing vegetables, it will neutralize the toxic sprays used on vegetables – then use the water for house or garden plants.

Re: what you can do to counter the flu vaccine_Wheatgrass liguid and india medicine NEEM leaves

I love wheatgrass and neem. Not being argumentative, just wonder if you have any sort of evidence, even anecdotal, that they could counter the vaccine.

Do you mean to use them instead of a vaccine? That sounds good. But I am always pondering whether someone could take the vaccine, and then somehow scrub the effects of it. I suspect the creepy little polluted swine DNA particles would be assimilated into our tissues in a flash. And tough to dislodge.Would love to learn otherwise.

he said detox an purify the blood

also no white sugar

A High School in Maine is to be taken over by the National Guard today for the purposes of a drill that will see Guardsmen deal with unruly citizens begging for swine flu vaccines.
Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in Paris, ME, has been chosen as a distribution site for the H1N1 flu vaccine by state officials.

Today’s drill will enact a riot scenario after Gov. John Baldacci and Gen. John Libby, adjutant general of the Maine National Guard, agreed that measures should be in place to deal with a possible public rush for inoculations against swine flu.

“On Thursday morning, four or five National Guard Humvees will travel from Augusta to Paris with vials of fake serum.” reports the Maine Sun Journal.

“The National Guardsmen will take on the roles of panicked citizens and military police and practice what they would do, such as using tear gas, in the case of a riot.” The article continues.
Local police will also liaise with the National Guard on the school grounds. The school itself will remain open, according to the report.

Center for Disease Control figures state that there are 323 confirmed cases of H1N1 in Maine. One man has died from the disease, though he was said to have “underlying health conditions” that were worsened by the flu.

This story dovetails with reports from late July indicating that the U.S. military is gearing up to get involved in the H1N1 swine flu outbreak promised to strike in the Fall.

“The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials,” a proposal that is currently on the desk of Defense Secretary Robert Gates, according to a CNN report.

The report indicates that the troops could be drawn from either active duty forces or the National Guard and Reserve forces, or both.

“As a first step, Gates is being asked to sign a so-called ‘execution order’ that would authorize the military to begin to conduct the detailed planning to execute the proposed plan.” the report states.

Gates’ overtures to usurp control of the Guard in a national emergency, and even to eventually merge the Guard and the Army Reserves into the “Total Force” of the U.S. military, under management of the DoD, has riled state authorities.

Last week The National Governors Association wrote to the Pentagon condemning the military’s open plans to effectively seize domestic control of National Guard and federal forces deployed in the event of a disaster or terrorist attack.

The NGA noted that the military’s agenda amounted to a dilution of governors’ constitutional responsibilities.

In addition to these ongoing proposals, the Pentagon has announced that at least 20,000 more active duty soldiers will be placed inside the United States under Northcom to “help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe.”

According to Northcom itself, the move also encompasses “civil unrest and crowd control”.
The ACLU has warned that the deployment represents an expansion in presidential and military authority and a militarization of homeland security.

This trend hasn’t gone unnoticed on Capitol Hill either. Georgia Congressman Paul Broun warned attendees of a town hall event Tuesday that the Obama administration is planning to use a pandemic or a natural disaster to implement martial law in the United States, in the wake of increased political unrest and plunging approval ratings.

The use of the National Guard for law enforcement duties and confrontation of the American people is becoming increasingly commonplace throughout the US.

National Guard troops were used to control the public during the Boston Marathon, the Kentucky Derby, and during New Year celebrations in Times Square last year.

As we reported last week, the sheriff of Alabama’s most populous county has announced he will probably have to bring in National Guard troops to perform law enforcement duties due to budget cuts.

Such a move has been replicated in other parts of the country, including in Schenectady New York, where budgetary constraints were not even cited as a reason for the changeover.

Back in April of this year, The Maryland National Guard was put on alert under an anti-terrorism program in anticipation of nationwide Tea Party protests. A “Force Protection advisory” document stated that Guardsmen and Guard facilities might become “targets of opportunity.”

One month earlier in March, the United States Army Reserve Command published a Force Protection Advisory recommending “situational awareness” and “mitigation measures” in response to End the Fed protests.

Other National Guard outfits have recently undergone training to engage in combat with “militia” groups, and held door to door gun confiscation drills.

Meanwhile, the Army National Guard is advertising for qualified personnel to work as Corrections Officers and Internment/Resettlement Specialists.

The use of military assets in civilian law enforcement is still illegal under Posse Comitatus, unless a clear state of emergency exists.


57 Trillion Reasons To Murder 100 Million
Americans With Poisonous Vaccinations

By Leonard G. Horowitz

The U.S. debt of $57 trillion in unfunded liabilities, according to common sense, is compelling reason for federal governors conspiring with special interests to murder 100 million Americans this fall using poisonous vaccinations.

According to federal deficit calculators at, more than $57 trillion is currently owed, including $39 trillion(T) in medicaid/medicare debt, $10T in social security payables, plus $8T in prescription drug liabilities, levying$189,210.00 in servitude upon every American citizen.

The mafia kills people for a lot less. Do you really think your debt collection is proceeding differently?

Consider current White House science czar John Holdren's published affection for population reduction, nuclear industry promotion, biological weapons distribution, and vaccination sterilization through intoxication advancing under the guises of "national security," "biopreparedness," "flu prevention, and "health care reform."

The fact is, you are worth more dead than alive to Obama's ilk, because in reality, there is a WARRANT FOR YOUR DEATH THAT CARRIES A REWARD OF $189K, and rising.

Now you would never believe this is true. But do your "homework" and learn the FACTS:

1) Washington, DC is a "district," not a "state" in the Republic. Legally, it is an offshore or "foreign" corporation.

2) U.S. Federal employees, including Capitol Hill legislators, are legally contracted to perform on behalf of the "foreign corporation."

3) The "foreign corporation" in now unable to pay its debts.

4) The "foreign corporation" is now calling in its notes.

5) Under Uniform Commercial Code (UCC--global economic administrative banking and accounting law) a liquidity account called a "bond" was created for you at birth.

6) This "bond" secures every American citizen with a birth certificate and social security number against debtor obligations administered through the IRS and Justice Department.

7) Your "bond," (private trust-like account created when your birth certificate was filed with the state, then sent to the federal corporation) is worth millions of dollars based on expert legal testimonies and insurance industry actuarial projections of your net worth--gross personal production-- from birth to grave.

8) Considering your gross personal productivity over your lifetime carries this economic value, you might call this your "gross personal product."

9) The "foreign corporation" assays America's "gross national product," and your "gross personal product" as well.

10) Assets of the "foreign corporation" may be liquidated to pay debts; and you may be liquidated, likewise, for available currency in your "transaction account," to pay the corporation's debts through the international bank-serving IRS "balance sheet" provisions that have been secreted from the public, but heralded legally by expert witnesses in tax courts.

The aforementioned FACTS EVIDENCE . . .


So you probably never realized you are worth more dead to our current "legal guardians" than alive. This best explains why:

1) Throughout history, global economic collapses have fueled major wars.

2) Hideously harmful, scientifically proven killers are often certified for use by the FDA and "fast-tracked" to markets,

3) The FDA incessantly advances Big Pharma's Codex Alimentarius plot to terminate over-the-counter access to vitamins, minerals, herbs, homeo-pathics, the healing natural sweetener stevia and energizing ginseng, but grants deadly addictive aspartame, even caffeine, free distribution everywhere.

4) Safe methods of water decontamination, such as inexpensive ultraviolet light and ozonation, or even nano-silver disinfection, is grossly excluded from municipal water purification methods in favor of totally toxic carcinogenic chlorine.

5) Fluoride, a mind-numbing bone-mottling intoxicant, is forced upon nearly everyone as a replacement for education and motivation for dental caries prevention.

6) Mercury in vaccines and dental fillings is still approved after extensive research proving toxicity and substantial morbidity and mortality linked to the heavy metal poison.

7) John Holdren became Obama administration "science czar" given his voracious appetite for population reduction through intoxication of water and food supplies, and the previously conducted mass vaccination causing sterilization as endorsed in his book Ecoscience.

8) US officials plan to administer 3 toxic immune system destroying squalene injections this fall under the guise of swine flu "biodefense," despite substantial scientific evidence proving this is a deadly immune-intoxicating substance.

9) CDC and NIAID officials lie about HIV/AIDS, in many different ways, quashing safe and effective low-to-no-cost treatments while partnering with private companies advancing profitable drug sales.

10) The new additional federal $1 billion contract for swine flu vaccines include Baxter corporation's provisions despite the company's history of genocidal operations. Federal officials were well aware the company spread HIV/AIDS in contaminated blood products AND spread H5N1 allegedly "accidentally" in time for this "biodefense" season.

11) Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama's Secretary of State, overseeing CIA, FBI and Foreign Policy, was politically positioned to dictate "health care reform," "national security," and "national health insurance policy,"

12) Mrs. Clinton went to Mexico precisely when the mysterious Mexican swine flu outbreak occurred to persuade government officials there to stop supporting drug traffickers whose WAR killed more than 7,000 people the previous 12 months. This just proves the "WAR on Drugs" is a profitable security investment for Big Pharma, political liars, and inside traitors(Ref); and why . . .

13) Every one of the deadliest pandemics throughout history has come when severe socioeconomic/political upheaval occurred.

Suffice it to say, knowing all of the above, you would have to be a complete idiot to accept flu vaccinations this fall, or any intoxication through "immunization" ever again.

The acidic poisonous Swine flu vaccine has been linked to a killer nerve disease. A leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America.

A warning that the new swine flu vaccine is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the Swine Flu vaccine.

"GBS is an acidic condition that ferments the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal." states Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, in San Diego, California.

The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications.

It refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when:

* More people died from the vaccination than from swine flu.
* 500 cases of GBS were detected.
* The vaccine may have increased the risk of contracting GBS by eight times.
* The vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when the link with GBS became clear.
* The US Government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to those affected.

Concerns have already been raised that the new vaccine has not been sufficiently tested and that the effects, especially on children, are unknown.

It is being developed by pharmaceutical companies and will be given to about 13 million people during the first wave of immunization, expected to start in October.

Top priority will be given to everyone aged six months to 65 with an underlying health problem, pregnant women and health professionals.

The British Neurological Surveillance Unit (BNSU), part of the British Association of Neurologists, has been asked to monitor closely any cases of GBS as the vaccine is rolled out.

One senior neurologist said last night: 'I would not have the swine flu vaccome because of the GBS risk.'

"I am concerned that there could be a repeat of what became known as the '1976 debacle' in the US, where the swine flu vaccine killed 25 people - more than the virus itself," stated Dr. Young.

A mass vaccination was given the go-ahead by President Gerald Ford because scientists believed that the swine flu strain was similar to the one responsible for the 1918-19 pandemic, which killed half a million Americans and 20 million people worldwide.

Within days, the acidic symptoms of GBS were reported among those who had been immunized and 25 people died from respiratory failure after severe paralysis. One in 80,000 people expressed this acidic condition. In contrast, just one person died of the so-called swine flu.

More than 40 million Americans had received the vaccine by the time the programm was stopped after ten weeks. The US Government paid out millions of dollars in compensation to those affected.

The so-called swine flu virus in the new vaccine is a slightly different strain from the 1976 virus, but the possibility of an increased incidence of GBS remains a concern.

Shadow health spokesman Mike Penning said last night: 'The last thing we want is secret letters handed around experts within the NHS. We need a vaccine but we also need to know about potential risks.

'Our job is to make sure that the public knows what's going on.
Why is the Government not being open about this? It's also very worrying if GPs, who will be administering the vaccine, aren't being warned.'

Two letters were posted together to neurologists advising them of the concerns. The first, dated July 29, was written by Professor Elizabeth Miller, head of the HPA's Immunization Department.

It says: 'The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use.

'GBS has been identified as a condition needing enhanced surveillance when the swine flu vaccines are rolled out.

'Reporting every case of GBS irrespective of vaccination or disease history is essential for conducting robust epidemiological analysis capable of identifying whether there is an increased risk of GBS in defined time periods after vaccination, or after influenza itself, compared with the background risk.'

The second letter, dated July 27, is from the Association of British Neurologists and is written by Dr Rustam Al-Shahi Salman, chair of its surveillance unit, and Professor Patrick Chinnery, chair of its clinical research committee.

It says: 'Traditionally, the BNSU has monitored rare diseases for long periods of time. However, the swine influenza (H1N1) pandemic has overtaken us and we need every member's involvement with a new BNSU survey of Guillain-Barre Syndrome that will start on August 1 and run for approximately nine months.

'Following the 1976 program of vaccination against swine influenza in the US, a retrospective study found a possible eight-fold increase in the incidence of GBS.

'Active prospective ascertainment of every case of GBS in the UK is required. Please tell BNSU about every case.

'You will have seen Press coverage describing the Government's concern about releasing a vaccine of unknown safety.'

If there are signs of a rise in GBS after the vaccination program begins, the Government could decide to halt it.

"GBS is an acidic condition brought on from acidic vaccines that destroys the lining of the nerves, leaving them unable to transmit signals to muscles effectively," states Dr. Young.

It can cause partial paralysis and mostly affects the hands and feet. In serious cases, patients need to be kept on a ventilator, but it can be fatal.

"Death is caused by acids that lead to paralysis of the respiratory system, causing the victim to suffocate," states Dr. Young.

The HPA said it was part of the Government's pandemic plan to monitor GBS cases in the event of a mass vaccination campaign, regardless of the strain of flu involved. But vaccine experts warned that the letters proved the program was a 'guinea-pig trial'.

Dr Tom Jefferson, co-ordinator of the vaccines section of the influential Cochrane Collaboration, an independent group that reviews research, said: 'New vaccines never behave in the way you expect them to. It may be that there is a link to GBS, which is certainly not something I would wish on anybody.

'But it could end up being anything because one of the additives in one of the vaccines is a substance called squalene, and none of the studies we've extracted have any research on it at all.'

He said squalene, a naturally occurring enzyme, could potentially cause so-far-undiscovered side effects.

Jackie Fletcher, founder of vaccine support group Jabs, said: 'The Government would not be anticipating this if they didn't think there was a connection. What we've got is a massive guinea-pig trial.'

Professor Chinnery said: 'During the last swine flu pandemic, it was observed that there was an increased frequency of cases of GBS. No one knows whether it was the virus or the vaccine that caused this.

'The purpose of the survey is for us to assess rapidly whether there is an increase in the frequency of GBS when the vaccine is released in the UK. It also increases consultants' awareness of the condition.

"Is the emotional acidic Panic over? The number of swine flu cases has fallen sharply in the past week," states Dr. Young.

"I COULDN''T EAT OR SPEAK... IT WAS HORRENDOUS," said Hilary Wilkinson, a victim of the Swine Flu vaccine.

When Hilary Wilkinson woke up with muscle weakness in her left arm and difficulty breathing, doctors initially put it down to a stroke.

But within hours, she was on a ventilator in intensive care after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

She spent three months in hospital and had to learn how to talk and walk again. But at times, when she was being fed through a drip and needed a tracheotomy just to breathe, she doubted whether she would survive.

The mother of two, 57, from Maryport, Cumbria, had been in good health until she developed a chest infection in March 2006. She gradually became so weak she could not walk downstairs.

Doctors did not diagnose Guillain-Barre until her condition worsened in hospital and tests showed her reflexes slowing down. It is impossible for doctors to know how she contracted the disorder, although it is thought to be linked to some infections.

Mrs Wilkinson said: 'It was very scary. I couldn't eat and I couldn't speak. My arms and feet had no strength and breathing was hard.

I was treated with immunoglobulin, which are proteins found in blood, to stop damage to my nerves. After ten days, I still couldn't speak and had to mime to nurses or my family.

'It was absolutely horrendous and I had no idea whether I would get through it. You reach very dark moments at such times and wonder how long it can last.

But I'm a very determined person and I had lots of support.'

After three weeks, she was transferred to a neurological ward, where she had an MRI scan and nerve tests to assess the extent of the damage.

Still unable to speak and in a wheelchair, Mrs Wilkinson eventually began grueling physiotherapy to improve her muscle strength and movement but it was exhausting and painful.

Three years later, she is almost fully recovered. She can now walk for several miles at a time, has been abroad and carries out voluntary work for a GBS Support Group helpline.

She said: 'It makes me feel wary that the Government is rolling out this vaccine without any clear idea of the GBS risk, if any. I wouldn't wish it on anyone and it certainly changed my life.

'I'm frightened to have the swine flu vaccine if this might happen again - it's a frightening illness and I think more research needs to be done on the effect of the vaccine.'

According to Dr. Young, "the flu is the body's way of removing excess environmental, metabolic and/or dietary acid out through the four channels of elimination - the bowels, the urinary system, the skin and the lungs. The most important fact to understand are the symptoms of the flu are not the disease but the body's attempt to re-establish the alkaline design of the body. This is where true immunity is found - in alkalinity - not in poisoning the body with an acidic vaccine. To prevent or reverse the symptoms of the so-called swine flu one must simply alkalize the body with alkaline water, food and supplements. An alkaline lifestyle and diet will buffer and eliminate the acidic waste products responsible for causing the flu-like symptoms. The beauty of this approach is the side-effects are good health."

Coulter described that central nervous system damage can be exhibited as abnormal behavior of the child. In 1935, Thomas Rivers, experimental allergic encephalitis (EAE) can be the result of a viral or bacterial infection of the nervous system. "The fact of the matter is that it is a matter of record that it was known that vaccination produced encephalitis since 1926." The authors stated, "In regions in which there is no organized vaccination of the population, general paralysis is rare. ... It is impossible to deny a connection between vaccinations and the encephalitis (brain damage) which follows it." Vaccines have been linked to seizures, convulsions and epilepsy.

What's In The Flu Shot?

The media has been promising a “flu pandemic” for months. Initially, nothing happened. Then a laboratory-produced strain of flu virus that, according to many prominent scientists, simply could not have arisen in nature, was released earlier this year in Mexico , but failed to produce the predicted pandemic. At the same time, test subjects being given flu vaccines were getting sick or dying, not from the flu, but from the vaccines. In advance of the predicted pandemic, drug makers were applying for flu vaccine patents for the “new strain,” even though it is impossible to make a vaccine before the new strain actually appears. Next, look for news stories showing panicking people begging for the shot in spite of “limited supplies” (at least 5 billion doses are actually planned), “to help protect my family!” This is supposed to implant in your mind that this shot is the way to protect your health.

Our government, on our behalf, has given the drug makers about a billion dollars of taxpayer money to develop the new vaccines, even though these companies are among the richest and most powerful on the planet. Their expected profits should exceed $50 billion, if their hopes for the coming “flu season” pan out.

Absent any large scale damage from the “new strain” of flu, the World Health Organization (WHO), in cooperation with the drug makers, went ahead and quietly took the step that will change everything that is about to happen. They declared a “stage 6 pandemic.” That means the WHO can assume power over all 194 member countries (including ours, of course), superseding each countries' own laws to force injection of every man, woman and child with the chemical cocktails that the drug makers produce. Greece has apparently become the first country to declare mandatory injections for its entire population. It has begun. Other countries will follow as fast as supplies of the vaccine are ready. Safety testing will be minimal. Why? - Don't the drug makers worry about lawsuits? Absolutely not – our government offers complete immunity from liability to the drug companies, if their products cause injury or death, on any scale. Why would that be necessary if the vaccines are safe?

If you think it is important to personally investigate this issue before injecting this material into your body or your child’s, do your homework and know what it is you are about to do. Do not blindly believe the “experts.” Your body or your child’s may be a “sacrifice they are willing to make.” Many doctors recommend vaccinations because it is standard procedure and the belief among doctors that vaccines prevent disease. However, there are many reputable doctors who say vaccines simply do not work, period. In fact, historically there are many instances of massive outbreaks of disease after mass vaccinations and there are many more health problems that occur commonly than simply getting the disease vaccinated against. Some of these problems are serious, even deadly. It is becoming common knowledge, for example, that the current wave of autism in America is directly linked to vaccinations that contain thimerisol, a form of mercury.

And high-dose mercury is not the only additive in the new flu vaccinations. Besides injecting live flu virus directly into yours and your child's bodies, these shots will also contain “adjuvants,” to make the virus supply for the shots go farther. One of the adjuvants will probably be “squalene.” This is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the human body, and might be harmless – if you drank it. But when it is injected, several of the doctors in the references below, believe it will cause the body to produce antibodies which will produce autoimmune diseases in many and compromise their quality of life permanently, and they believe many will die. This is in addition to spreading the very pandemic that has been predicted, not from getting the virus naturally, but from getting the virus by direct injection. That in turn, will give the government a perfect excuse for measures that WHO mandates in their procedures, including incarceration for anyone attempting to refuse the shots (probably 3 per person), and the use of deadly force, if necessary.

Check this out for yourself. Read the article cited below by Dr. James Howenstein, world-renown researcher and MD, whose article on why to avoid the flu shot is backed up by his own research. This issue is as serious as the life and health of your family, so please read these materials, and others you may find, in order to get the whole picture on what is a profitable, but seriously flawed theory that vaccinations prevent disease. - Daily news, subscribe for free) - Weekly news, subscribe for free - News on all health freedom issues, get on free email list. - Check out all of the previously-held free “webinars” offered by this courageous MD. This is an excellent education in the essential basics of vaccination and specifically the swine flu shot.

Http:// - Another great educational site. This doctor has devoted many years to the study of vaccination and now devotes much of her time to educating the public about the massive damage she sees coming from vaccinations. - Dr. Carley has also spent many years in the study of vaccinations and believes the injecting of mass numbers of Americans with this new series of shots will create not only a widespread real pandemic, but will also damage and kill large numbers of Americans and citizens of other countries who are also members of WHO.

Maximum Alert: U.S. Troops Now Occupying America

Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Under the pretext of “helping” local communities short of police in difficult economic times, as well as preparations for a potential swine flu pandemic, U.S. troops are now occupying America as the country sinks into a state of de facto martial law.
We have been inundated with reports over the last few weeks of uniformed soldiers and National Guardsmen running internal checkpoints all over the country as a frightening “Red Dawn” scenario unfolds not with a bang but with a whimper.
The military are now being called upon to undertake roles normally designated to police as Americans are incrementally acclimated to accept the presence of troops on the streets as an everyday occurrence.
The latest case occurred in Kingman Arizona, where National Guardsmen were filmed “providing security” and directing traffic.

Another similar example occurred in Newport Kentucky earlier this month when military checkpoints suddenly appeared downtown on September 6. Military Police from the U.S. Army National as well as Marines were purportedly conducting “traffic control” because the city was strapped for funds and did not have enough police to do the job.
The excuse that troops are stepping in to help because there is a lack of police doesn’t wash. Crime is down over the last 20 years, there are around three times more police and the state is not calling out the National Guard, they are being put on the streets as a result of the harmonization of police and military, a process that has been ongoing for decades, long before the economic recession hit. Troops also have guns and their primary function is to search people and vehicles, not direct traffic.
Members of the WeAreChange Ohio group interviewed some of the troops, who when asked if they would be prepared to “confiscate guns, shoot resisters in the back of the head, or throw people into ovens to incinerate bodies,” refused to categorically deny that they would follow such orders.
Watch the video below.

However, this was by no means the first time that troops have been used to fulfil roles normally ascribed to police in Kentucky.
During the Kentucky Derby on May 2 this year, Military Police were on patrol to deal with crowd control. An Associated Press photograph shows armed MP’s detaining a man who ran onto the track following the 135th Kentucky Derby horse race at Churchill Downs.
“The military has NO BUSINESS policing the citizens except during extraordinarily exceptional times of national emergency by an executive order. This is very disturbing and completely un-American. Maybe even more disturbing is that no one seems to care how quietly and easily we have accepted the burgeoning police state,” one respondent to the photo stated.
As we reported last year, U.S. troops returning from Iraq are now occupying America, running checkpoints and training to deal with “civil unrest and crowd control” under the auspices of a Northcom program that by 2011 will have no less than 20,000 active duty troops deployed inside America to “help” state and local officials during times of emergency.

Over the course of the last couple of years, we have reported on numerous instances of military involvement with local law enforcement in violation of Posse Comitatus.
In January, soldiers from the Virginia National Guard. Soldiers from the Lynchburg-based 1st Battalion, 116th Brigade Combat Team, were used to conduct personal searches at checkpoints in Washington DC for the inauguration of Barack Obama.
In March, we reported on U.S. Army troops dispatched to patrol the streets of Samson, Alabama, after a murder spree.
On April 6, we reported on a DHS, federal, state, Air Force, and local law enforcement checkpoint in Tennessee. On April 3, Infowars was instrumental in the cancellation of a seatbelt checkpoint that was to be conducted in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security and the 251st Military Police in Bolivar, Tennessee.
Last December, we reported on the Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center dispatching troops to work with police on checkpoints in in San Bernardino County, California.
On April 22, we reported the deployment of 400 National Guard Combat Support Battalion troops to “maintain public order” at the Boston Marathon.

Last June, Infowars posted an article by D. H. Williams of the Daily Newscaster reporting the deployment of 2,300 Marines in the city of Indianapolis under the direction of FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
We also reported a story on April 22 covering the assault of a local television news team by an irate police officer in El Paso, Texas. A video taken by the news videographer shows uniformed soldiers working with police officers at the scene of a car accident.
The presence of uniformed and armed military police at the Kentucky Derby and those seen recently at the Riverfest celebration is part of an ongoing campaign to acclimate the populace to the presence of soldiers at public events.
This has now rapidly accelerated with reports pouring in from our readers of military checkpoints being set up all over the country in preparation for the swine flu pandemic.
Last week we reported on the testimony of a military whistleblower who warned that law enforcement and military personnel are training to set up checkpoints in order to catch people who refuse to take the swine flu vaccination.
In a You Tube video, a woman describing herself as a soldier explains how she was part of a drill in California centered around setting up roadblocks and checkpoints so authorities could check who has received the swine flu vaccine. Those who have had the shots will be fitted with an RFID bracelet so they can be tracked. Those who have not taken the shot will be offered it there and then and if they still refuse, will be carted off to an internment camp, according to the woman.

As CNN reported back in July, the military will assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant swine flu outbreak in the U.S. this fall, stoking fears that the pandemic, which has claimed relatively few lives so far, will be used as an excuse to implement martial law and a mandatory vaccination program.
“The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military,” states the report.
Northcom has been preparing for mass flu pandemics for years and indeed, Gen. Victor Renuart spoke of the threat of a flu pandemic emerging out of Mexico just weeks before it actually happened.
Testifying back in March, Renuart said Northcom would provide “assistance in support of civil authorities” during an epidemic, adding “when requested and approved by the Secretary of Defense or directed by the President, federal military forces will contribute to federal support.” However, Renuart then added, “USNorthCom does not wait for that call to action.”
Northcom was only relatively recently assigned its own fighting unit – the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, which had been fighting in Iraq for five years before that. As we have previously reported, the Armed Forces Press Service has initiated a propaganda campaign designed to convince the American people that deploying the 3rd Infantry Division in the United States in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act is a good thing, with images of soldiers from the brigade helping in “humanitarian” rescue missions, such as car wrecks. This is all designed to condition Americans to accept troops on the streets and highways as a part of everyday life.
The assignment of the 1st Brigade Combat Team to Northcom alarmed the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). “This is a radical departure from separation of civilian law enforcement and military authority and could, quite possibly, represent a violation of law,” said Mike German, ACLU national security policy counsel.
The last time the the national guard and military worked with FEMA and local law enforcement on a large scale in the United States was during Hurricane Katrina, when they aided in the confiscation of privately owned firearms of citizens, even those who lived in the high and dry areas and were unaffected by the hurricane.
Another exercise that is training the U.S. military to take over law enforcement duties during a swine flu outbreak was revealed on Monday. According to, the Panamax 2009 drill, which is taking place in both Panama and San Antonio Texas, is designed to train soldiers to “stop people from going to work and school,” during a pandemic.
Collating all the evidence of how the military has been seamlessly ingrained into the daily lives of Americans by way of uniformed troops undertaking law enforcement duties, there can be no doubt that the U.S. is already under a condition of undeclared martial law. If a deadlier swine flu pandemic returns this fall, as authorities have vehemently promised will happen, military checkpoints that are now dotted around the country will rapidly multiply and America will fully begin to resemble conditions witnessed in the historical dictatorships of Maoist China, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
Only by becoming aware of how far America has sunk into a militarized police state can we begin to reverse the incremental conditioning that has led Americans to accept the sight of troops on the streets demanding their papers.

Quarantined Navy ship - Captain And Chief Petty Officer dead?

Topic started on 22-9-2009 @ 06:02 PM by warrenb

The Navy ship that has been under quarantine for almost a month now is due to return tomorrow. All crew were given the vaccine and everyone got sick which resulted in the quarantine. The captain of the ship and the chief petty officer are confirmed deceased and the ship is now under command of a new captain.
Crew are reported to have had fevers lasting 5-6 days with paralyzing fevers of over 104 degrees.


Sailors quarantined as swine flu outbreaks hit Royal Navy vessels

Published Date:
02 September 2009
The Royal Navy is putting sailors into quarantine to deal with outbreaks of swine flu on its ships.
Antiviral drugs have also been sent to every ship in the fleet to help sailors fight the highly infectious bug.

Seven ships have now had crew members showing symptoms of swine flu.

Just recently eight sailors of the 38-strong crew in HMS Clyde have been struck down by the bug during its deployment in the South Atlantic.

Lt Rolf Williams, based at fleet HQ in Portsmouth, said the way in which sailors can be separated from each other means it is simple to control an outbreak on board a navy ship.

'It is easier in that sort of environment to manage it is than it is in somewhere like an office,' he said. 'The way the ship's compartments are designed it is manageable.

'The Royal Navy is used to dealing with the unexpected. We planned for it and were prepared and it was business as usual.'

The Royal Navy set up a group that meets on a weekly basis as soon as the threat of swine flu emerged earlier this year.

It has used its intranet service and regular newsletters to make sailors aware of the risks of swine flu.

Lt Williams added: 'We had processes in place from day one. People on the ship know all about washing their hands and if they are sneezing then doing it into a tissue and then putting it straight in the bin.

'When people on board have shown symptoms it has been relatively straightforward to deal with. We are not complacent though. We are working this carefully and taking the advice from medical authorities.'

Despite some reports claiming HMS Clyde had been 'crippled' by the swine flu outbreaks, Lt Williams said the vessel's ability to do its job around the Falkland Islands 'had not been compromised'.


HMS Clyde was launched in 2006 and was the first ship to be built and launched in Portsmouth since 1967.

The 1,850-tonne vessel had been due to start a training exercise off the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic.

But it was delayed while the sailors recovered.

    Daycare Worker Told She’ll Be Fired For Refusing Mandatory Flu Shot

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Tuesday, September 22, 2009

    A daycare worker employed by Northeast Health in Albany New York was shocked to be told by her boss that she would be fired if she refused to take a seasonal swine flu shot on the spot. Similar stories have been pouring in to us from all over the country as fears that the upcoming H1N1 shot will also be mandatory continue to grow.
    The case emphasizes why President Obama’s claim that the swine flu shot will be voluntary is completely deceptive and misleading. Americans across the country, even those not directly connected with health care work, are being ordered to take the mandated seasonal and swine flu shots or lose their jobs.
    The story of what happened to the daycare worker, who would like to go by the pseudonym “Clare,” was sent to us by her sister who also provided Clare’s real name and the full name of the facility she is employed with.
    Clare works in a daycare center which is affiliated with the local hospital but in a completely separate building. It was reported earlier this month that all hospital workers in the entire region would be forced to take the seasonal flu shot or lose their jobs and that the vaccine would become a condition of employment.
    “On the Tuesday morning following the Labor Day weekend (Sept 8th), the director of the daycare of Northeast Health announced to employees on the spot (without a meeting, memo or discussion) that everyone had to go get a flu shot immediately and staff would be rotated so that everyone would be inoculated by the end of the day,” writes Clare’s sister.
    “Clare said “I don’t get flu shots” and was told “well then you’ll be fired.”
    The director told Clare that the H1N1 shot would also be mandated in the same way when it becomes available. When Clare warned the director that the swine flu shot contained mercury, squalene and other dangerous additives, the director told her that regardless of her objections, if she refused to be vaccinated she would be suspended from November 13th and then formally fired on November 30th.
    “Clare asked how she can be fired for something that was not a condition of her employment when she was hired? She was told it was not Northeast Health’s policy, it was the director of the New York State Department of Health who made the shot mandatory,” writes her sister.
    However, according to the NYSDOH decree for mandatory vaccinations, exemptions exist for “personnel who have a medical contraindication and for workers, such as those offsite, who would have no contact with patients and only incidental contact with direct-care staff.” Clare clearly falls into this category as she works in a separate building from the hospital and has no direct regular contact with hospital workers.
    Clare demanded answers to the following questions, none of which have been addressed by the daycare director.
    1. The regular seasonal flu hasn’t even hit so how will this first mandated shot provide any immunity when it is clearly the vaccine from last year?
    2. When the H1N1 is mandated – as I believe it will be – and if I did get the shot to save my job and should I have one of the adverse reactions that the CDC has predicted, will I be covered under Workers Comp since the action that caused the injury was job related? (The cost of which will fall on the employer NOT the State of New York.)
    3. Should I refuse the shot will I be eligible for Unemployment Compensation since I did nothing to warrant being terminated?
    4. Malpractice insurance providers in Australia are refusing to extend coverage to their clients who give the shot; will this be the case in New York?
    5. Are insurance companies going to cover subscribers who fall ill as a result of the H1N1 inoculations that were mandated by the NYS Department of Health?

    • A D V E R T I S E M E N T

    After concerned parents started to ask Clare why she was leaving, it some became apparent that the director had immediately produced a letter and circulated it around the daycare, claiming that Clare was leaving for “personal reasons,” without mentioning the real reason, that she refused to take the vaccine.
    Clare took the letter to the head of human resources but was told that, “the New York State Labor Department would probably be instructed to side with the Department of Health and determine that you were fired for not following an order from your employer and not approve Unemployment Compensation. The meeting ended with him stating that it was the NYS Department of Health’s call and not Northeast Health and there was no way around it.”
    “Not only have my sister’s rights as an employee been violated but her employer’s justification for terminating her is based on a falsehood on top of which she may be prevented from receiving Unemployment Insurance for this wrongful termination,” writes Clare’s sister.
    As an addendum, Clare’s sister informs us that one of the daycare teachers who did take the seasonal flu shot on September 8th suffered a reaction less than a week later. Clare’s sister takes up the story;
    “It began with symptoms similar to Pink Eye on her left side and then her eye swelled; the swelling then spread further down her check and then into her neck where a mass formed. This 30 year old mother of three has been unable to work since the symptoms in her eye surfaced, around the 14th. My sister Clare asked school officials if her ill coworker would be covered by Workers Comp and was told they believe she would be. The co-worker has been on antibiotics that don’t seem to be working. Her doctor told her if the RX doesn’t clear it up the “infection(?)” soon they’ll have to take more drastic action. My sister was told by her ill co worker: “Clare you were right to say no to the shot, the job isn’t worth it, I should never have gotten the shot.”
    Clare is now facing unemployment as a result of refusing to take the seasonal flu vaccine, not to mention the H1N1 shot. Thousands of other health workers are now in a similar position whereby they will be forced to take the dangerous swine flu shot or be fired over the course of the next few weeks. Polls indicate that at least a third of nurses and health workers will refuse to take the vaccine and another third are still unsure. If even as little as a quarter of health care professionals stand up in unison and refuse to be intimidated into taking the shot, authorities will probably have to back off and make the shot voluntary.
    However, Clare’s deeper concern is that another primary target of the first round of swine flu vaccinations, young children, will be even more vulnerable to having the shot forced upon them with no warning or notice whatsoever.
    “My sister has three children in public school and is extremely concerned that the head of the New York State Department of Health, Dr. Richard Daines, will next decree the shots are mandatory for all school children,” writes Clare’s sister.
    “She is prepared to home school them but is scared to death that in the mean time an UNANNOUNCED flu shot clinic will be sprung on school districts some morning to get around parental objections to having their children vaccinated. She has told her children in no uncertain terms are they to accept the shot(s) but realizes the Hobson’s choice they too may soon face and that they are so much less prepared than she to fight this unconstitutional authority.”

    Swine Flu Document Lists Sports Arena As Mass Vaccination Center

    Steve Watson
    Thursday, Sept 24, 2009

    Two more sets of UK regional influenza pandemic contingency documents have revealed details regarding the government’s plans to set up mass vaccination centres in conjunction with local authorities and other departmentalized agencies.
    One of the documents highlights a need to keep the location of mass vaccination centres secret from the public, while the other lists a sports stadium as one of the locations for mass public inoculation.
    Earlier this week we highlighted regional H1N1 pandemic planning documents for the UK indicating that local authorities intend to set up mass vaccination sites to be overseen by crowd control police.
    The plans outline the need to identify suitable locations for mass vaccination centres and the need to determine how many people can be vaccinated per day and for how long.
    Now more documents from different regions have come to light, revealing the same overall strategy.
    The first document, entitled Contingency Plan For Mass Vaccination And Treatment, originates from the Leicestershire Local Resilience Forum (LRF), a multi agency group consisting of the emergency services, local authorities, and local health trusts as well as the Environment Agency.
    The document dated January 2008 states:
    “When the general population is threatened or affected by a medical epidemic, mass vaccination of the public may be necessary.”
    The “public version” of the plan states that the locations of the vaccine centers have been omitted.
    The document advises that the mass vaccination centres should be ready to operate 24 hours a day and estimates that they will “process approximately 1,000 – 3,000 people per day”.

    The paper notes that the public should be informed “what to expect when they get there i.e. adverse reactions and where to get advice”.

    It also gives an insight into the running of the centres, which is completely departmentalized under a “Tactical co-ordinating Group”. Under a section titled “Communications”, however, it is stated that “The Strategic co-ordinating Group will decide who will be the primary spokesperson in the interim set-up period; once command and control structure is in place, this may transfer to a specific agency.”
    Like the earlier uncovered documents, the need for “triage” of patients is highlighted.
    The paper also states that “Police Services will advise on the security/safety aspects of each considered site and respond to public order situations.”
    In a key passage, the document notes “There is no specific legislation relating to this plan however, special powers granted to HM Government under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 may apply.”
    The second freshly discovered document is a sample vaccination order (PDF) originating from the NHS health authority in Bolton, Lancashire.
    The order states that people in the UK will be summoned for a vaccination at an “allocated” date and time at pre-planned mass vaccination centres, and that refusal to attend is not an option.
    “It is important that you attend this session. If you are unable to attend, you will need to go to one of the later sessions listed overleaf,” says the letter in Appendix F page 29 of the contingency document.
    The letter lists Bolton Arena as the mass vaccination site, which is a large indoor sports arena.
    “This is a new vaccine, which protects against the pandemic strain of influenza, which circulated last year.” the letter, which was drawn up in September 2006, states.
    The document also highlights the need for crowd control and says that contract security should be considered in addition to the local police forces.

    Nurses Plan Rally To Protest Mandatory Swine Flu Shot

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Tuesday, September 22, 2009

    Albany nurses and other health professionals are planning to stage a rally next week to protest a state regulation that mandates they will lose their jobs if they refuse to take the swine flu shot, as fears grow about the vaccine’s dangerous ingredients and government plans to forcibly inoculate whole populations with the H1N1 jab.
    Earlier today we reported on the case of “Clare,” a daycare worker in Albany who, despite having minimal contact with hospital staff who work in a separate building, an exemption allowed in the official decree, was ordered to take the seasonal flu shot on the spot or be fired. She was also advised that the same procedure would be in place for the swine flu shot, as is outlined in the New York State Department of Health’s emergency regulation issued in August.
    Now nurses across the state are standing up against government intimidation to take the shot, pointing out that the vaccine has not been properly tested and contains mercury, squalene and other dangerous additives.
    The New York State Nurses Association is supporting a demonstration on behalf of nurses set to take place next week, reports Newsday.
    “This vaccine has not been clinically tested to the same degree as the regular flu vaccine,” said Tara Accavallo, a registered nurse in Stony Brook’s neonatal intensive care unit, the division that has produced a number of protesters. “If something happens to me, if I get seriously injured from this vaccine, who’s going to help me?”
    Accavallo says she is willing to lose her job if need be, which is exactly what will happen to thousands of other health professionals on November 30 if the government refuses to back down.
    Rob Kozik, another registered nurse in Stony Brook’s neonatal intensive care unit, said he has no problems with a seasonal vaccine but he has deep concerns about being immunized against H1N1. “I usually get vaccinated against the flu, but they are mandating an untested and unproven vaccine,” Kozik told Newsday
    “The H1N1 vaccine already has a poor track record,” he added. “Back in 1976 there was vaccine [to protect against swine flu] that caused death and Guillain-Barre syndrome,” said Kozik, referring to a nerve-damaging disorder that some people linked to the vaccine. He said he also worries about the vaccine additive thimerosal, which is used as a preservative in some doses of the vaccine.

    • A D V E R T I S E M E N T

    According to Dr. Steven Walerstein, medical director of Nassau University Medical Center where H1N1 vaccinations have already started, 25 workers at the institution refused to take the shot and were later “referred to human resources and counseling.”
    If polls are proven accurate, at least a third of nurses and health workers in the U.S. and the UK will refuse to take the shot, with another third still undecided.
    The fact that health professionals, and even employees loosely affiliated with hospitals, are being intimidated into taking the shot, proves President Obama’s claim that the vaccine will be voluntary to be deceptive and misleading. At the very least people’s livelihoods are on the line if they refuse to be injected and elsewhere, in countries such as Ireland and Greece, authorities have threatened large fines and jail time for people who refuse the vaccine.
    As we have previously documented, the swine flu vaccine was rushed through safety procedures while governments have provided pharmaceutical companies with blanket immunity from lawsuits arriving out of the vaccine causing deaths and injuries.
    It was previously revealed that some batches of the vaccine will contain mercury, a toxin linked with autism and neurological disorders. The vaccine will also contain the dangerous ingredient squalene, which has been directly linked with cases of Gulf War Syndrome and a host of other debilitating diseases.
    It was also recently reported that the UK government sent a confidential letter to senior neurologists telling them to be on the alert for cases of a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine. The CDC in America replicated this warning weeks later.
    As a result of the dangers of the vaccine becoming widely known, authorities are moving to get out ahead of the story by acknowledging that millions of health problems in the aftermath of a vaccination campaign will be blamed on the vaccine, citing the 1976 swine flu debacle when the shot proved far deadlier than the actual virus.
    Reuters reports that public health officials, “Expect an avalanche of so-called adverse event reports, which are reports of death, illness or other health trauma that occur within two weeks after receiving treatment — in this case, the swine flu vaccine,” in reaction to an estimated “one million heart attacks, 700,000 strokes and 900,000 miscarriages.”
