The Messiah From Brooklyn

"For those collecting examples of amusing or interesting uses of the Obama-esque rhetoric, here's one we saw in Manhattan this Sunday," writes Steven Waldman on the Beliefnet Blog.

Beliefnet, a large religious and spiritual site on the web, writes Monday about the second Mitzvah Tank parade, organized by the International Center to Bring Moshiach - a messianic group.

Along side a photo of one of the Tanks, was the title: "Yes We Can!" Welcome Back "the Messiah" (The One From Brooklyn).

Steven Waldman, the editor in chief, wrote on his blog: "For those collecting examples of amusing or interesting uses of the Obama-esque rhetoric, here's one we saw in Manhattan this Sunday.

"This is a picture of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the Lubavitch leader who, according to some of his followers, is the Messiah. This signs suggests improving the world to welcome him back."

Yes We Can
I keep hearing that this slogan is not Obama's, but that of a Shliach in CA. Can someone tell me how you know this?

maybe we should stop doing anything Jewish that is also done by other religions

not the case #6
No- the idea is to stop implying who is Moshiach.We as Jews should rely on H' to say who it is and quit naming or implying who it is-exactly because we are NOT like others.Stop acting like you belong to a cult of goyim.Lets revere the Rebbe the way he is supposed to be respected and not anything less.

Act like a Jewish Nation
It's about time you start acting like Jews and not goyim.We believe in Moshiach and Gd will bring him to us when HE decides is the right time. You are not part of a cult to decide this.You are not the Creator.Of course we need to follow the Rebbe's guidelines but that's where it ends.The rest is up to the Almighty.

wow... why don't you learn the Rebbe's sichos? he directly addresses your question...
(4/7/2009 2:37:00 AM)
why don't you just tell us what the sicah says and what does it answer? It answers that he is the Messiah?What then?
(4/7/2009 11:34:59 AM)
Bottom Line: Yeshke cannot qualify as a legitimate member of the tribe of Yehudah since he is a tribeless Yisroel through his mother. He has not father and therefore cannot receive neither membership in Yehudah nor paternal descent through David via Shlomo.

The Rebbe is a legitimate descendent of David/Shlomo through his father and a viable candidate for Moshiach.

Your comparison is invalid.
