with the rapid growth of world terrorism-including many muslim groups-Which country in the world today do you feel is the safest to live in & farthest away from being hit by non-stop terror? & why do you feel it is the country you choose?March 19, 2017 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1238888DovidBTParticipant
Antarctica seems to be very safe. But finding a regular minyan would probably be challenging.March 19, 2017 9:02 pm at 9:02 pm #1238916akupermaParticipant
Olam ha-Ba is quite safe. It’s the world of emes. This world is the world of sheker (fake world). Don’t lose sleep over it. In a wink of an eye you’ll realize its a bad dream and no more.March 19, 2017 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1238991
Best is to be in Eretz Yisrael. That way even if you are killed,c”v, you get the zchus of dying in Eretz Yisrael al kiddush Hashem. Also, it’s much less scary to be killed when you are so close to the Shechina.
And it’s for sure much less scary to live when you are so close to the Shechina!March 19, 2017 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1238992

Wouldn’t that apply to anything in “this world”? So there’s no point in expending effort to get a good-paying job, finding a pleasant place to live, etc.?March 22, 2017 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #1241679
He was talking about feeling safe. We can’t do anything about it, so there is no point in worrying. This wasn’t about expending effort.October 31, 2022 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #2133961
The best way to feel safe is do your hishtadlus in safety and put your complete faith and trust in Hashem in all situations in life that a person goes through. From your livelihood to family Shidduchim to children and health etc…. Turn directly to Hashem for the best results and best safety in all locations worldwide. Yes Hashem watches his loving children klal yisroel even in Europe still and in Muslim countries.October 31, 2022 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #2134138Menachem ShmeiParticipant
How optimistic, Eretz Yisroel is the best place to live because it’s the best place to get killed! (ר”ל)
A fundamental tenent of our belief system is אחכה לו בכל יום שיבוא. No matter how bleak things look, let’s remember that we’re on the threshold to a much better world.
As the Rambam describes (הלכות מלכים ומלחמות ומלך המשיח פי”ב ה”ה):
At that time [of Melech haMoshiach], there will be no famine nor war, no jealousy nor competition, and all delicacies will be found like dust… And the world will be filled with the knowledge of Hashem as the water covers the seabed.October 31, 2022 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #2134141Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
what do we know .. . one sefer reports two trains in Sep 1939 traveling towards each other, from Nazi-occupied to Soviet-occupied area and other way around, with Jews in both trains shouting to the others to turn around and not go to the place of danger ..October 31, 2022 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #2134150philosopherParticipant
I’m thinking about this question a lot. I don’t think there’s a safe place in the world today…we need Moshiach asap.November 1, 2022 2:36 am at 2:36 am #2134196
Then why don’t we all accept Hashems wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus together ASAP when such large tragedies strike klal yisroel tragically C”V?
Why do we just keep living in denial and instead wake up and FACE REALITY IMMEDIATELY? when a serious issue like this arises it calls for immediate wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus together ASAP like we did in the story of Purim etc ….
Hashem loves his loving children klal yisroel and is waiting to send Mashiach already bkarov but first we need to do our hishtadlus and beg our loving father Hashem forgiveness and return with serious Teshuva ASAP TOGETHER.
no parents would ever let their children suffer or punish them but sometimes they have no choice the child won’t listen to do his homework or go to sleep etc….. What de we all call this? A potch of LOVE that we know is for the child’s benefit and ultimate good and in years from now when he grows up he might even thank his parents for the punishment and waking him up for the mistake he made
Let’s all wake ourselves up from living in denial and FACE REALITY IMMEDIATELY and beg Hashem to bring Mashiach already with our serious Teshuva and Achdus together ASAPNovember 1, 2022 10:25 am at 10:25 am #2134257philosopherParticipant
Sam Klein, this is the yetzer hora at work; we are complacent and currently very busy with the “elections” whom we are indorsing and whom we are not endorsing, whom we are voting for…we continue being running after materialism, frum women are going around with wigs to their waistes, they are dancing and singing on public forums, we are continuing to be brazen and the secular society is continuing to get more and more perverted. It is scary.November 1, 2022 11:43 am at 11:43 am #2134327commonsaychelParticipant
The answer to your question all depends on how soon klal yisroel stops living in Denial and starts FACING REALITY. do you think Hashem wants to C”V destroy and take away from klal yisroel this beautiful Medina shel chessed Hashem gave us of the USA that was actually discovered by a Jewish messenger? Yes actually discovered by accident but nothing just happens by mistake or coincidence.
Let’s hope we all wake ourselves up from living in Denial and FACE REALITY IMMEDIATELY and accept Hashems wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus ASAP together as one loving nation so Hashem can send Mashiach already bkarov.November 1, 2022 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #2134377MarxistParticipant

Lock yourself up in a Bais medrash and attach yourself completely to Hashem our loving father and king.
Your wife can bring your meals to you like they did in the days of the Gemara and they lived the safest place by being in the Bais medrash 24-7May 16, 2023 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #2190983Baby SquirrelParticipant
