Following are some excerpts of Holocaust? No, it can’t happen here…, from Rabbi Lazer Brody’s, Lazer Beams blog – Reflections of Emuna with Rabbi Lazer Brody , which deals on the gathering clouds of American antisemitism.
Famous last words of German Jews prior to Kristallnacht: “No, it can’t happen here…”
American Jews, ever so comfy, say the same thing today. With oil up to $120/barrel and the value of the dollar down by over 30%, with a waning economy and increasing unemployment, it’s only a matter of time until the ground really starts burning under the feet of American Jews.
Here you have it beloved brethren, the only weapon that will defeat Eretz Ysrael’s enemies, is PRAYER, not weapons, or any person or army but simple sincere PRAYER from way deep within our heart.
We have to get hold of our sword (Emunah) and start praying (Tefillah) to Hashem, in order to clean the path so that Mosiach can come and deliver Klal Ysrael from our enemies.
Rabbi Lazer Brody from Lazer Beams has a wonderful spiritual explanation about the threat against Israel and how to deal with it.

Rama, Shulchan Oruch, Orach Chaim 481:2 – “This night is protected from the forces of evil.”
The Torah describes Seder night as a “night of protection” (Exodus 12:42), when Hashem personally took His beloved children of Israel out of Egypt. The original Hebrew lail shimorim is interpreted two different ways in the Midrash: First, it is a “reserved” night, since Hashem redeemed Israel from bondage on the night of the 15th of Nisan, he reserves this same night to redeem his children Israel in the future (Yalkut Shimoni, Bo, 210). Second, it’s a “protected” night (ibid), since Hashem’s divine presence repels all mazikim, the dark-side forces of evil.
“Night of protection” is no mere homiletic catchphrase; it’s anchored in religious law! The Abridged Code of Jewish Law (119:9), in explaining how to perform the latter part of the Seder, writes: “After grace following the meal, we pour the fourth cup. According to custom, we open the door in remembrance that tonight is a protected night and we fear nothing.”
A person can turn any night into a “night of protection” by simply pouring his or her heart out in personal prayer. Rebbe Nachman teaches that when a Jew desires to speak to Hashem, Hashem moves everything aside to listen. By virtue of our speaking to Hashem, we hasten the day of the ingathering of the exiles and the final redemption of our people, amen.
