POTD - באבובע'ר "משיחיזם" אין לאנדאן
It seems like the holy Bobover Rebbe - the REAL Bobov - is visiting London for a family simcha. Chassidim like to spread the wonderful news and their excitement, and they do it by spending money and putting up signs in the streets and in the shuls. Nothing new here. But boy was I shocked to the core to see that they had gone much further now! That in the עיר הבירה לאנדאן, the big sin of משיחיזם, which is to put the slogan of "יחי" on a ארון הקודש, is staring to seep in to קרייזען that were years very נזהר from such מעשים אשר לא יעשו... No mention of Moshiach on their signs, but as close as it can get! And this is only temporary Meshichism too... when he leaves so do the signs. But as חז"ל say שאני מינות דמשכי, and this got in to them in the worst fashion, by putting on the ארון הקודש slogans of old cities in Poland that were named after עבודה זרה, like their ancestor the holy Sanzer Rov said, and worshiping some idol with all the bells and whistles. כל מי שיש בידו למחות ...... It's beyond me to understand how this can happen in a city where all the post war professional מוכיחים בשער, such as Domb and Groman, find their headquarters, that davka there should happen such a sin...
UPDATE - 4:10pm DST
I got an email from a young man in London telling me that the above is a "fake," and he sent me this photo as the "real" one. Can you spot the differences? Are they substantial? What did they fake in the first one and why?
