As we hit the last week of Nissan, we get to the end of the ten month tikkun that began with Rosh Chodesh Av of last year. It is not a coincidence that the PA has reconciled with Hamas and it was in the news last night. It is the Nesirah process moving forward, as the “Palestinian state” seems to be how Hashem is planning to get us to the final scenario described in Yechezkel.
Take heart, as Hashem says in the Yalkut Shimoni after the description of the destruction wrought by Paras in the end of days, “Don’t worry my children. All that is happening is only for your sake. Why are you scared? Do not fear, the time for your redemption has come. This final redemption will not be like the earlier redemption. The first redemption was followed by pain and enslavement to the nations. This final redemption, however, will not be followed by pain and enslavement to the nations.”
It also seems pretty clear that the whole Kever Yosef business going on right now is connected.
