Her name is Sarah and she just turned 90 and she’s a Holocaust Survivor and she has things to say.

Sarah, you say we live in “demonic times.” What do you mean?

“Simply that when things get so bad it means Mashiach is coming.”


“Oh absolutely. We are experiencing the birthing pains of Mashiach.”

I did not know you were so religious.

“Without God there is nothing, and that is the world today. No God, hence chaos.”

Such as?

“Children being tricked into believing that men can have babies, and being taught that boys and girls are the same, and that changing genders are worthy experiments.”


“Therefore, the entire system is based on godlessness. More?”


“Oh, the lies, the lies, the lies, all meant to confuse and confound like Babel. I was just watching CNN…”

Well, that’s a mistake.

“Yes, it is. So, the man is saying there is no crisis at the border. He’s lying. He knows he’s lying, but he gets away with it because they are all liars.”

Is that…

“Yes, that’s the demon doing his work as he did it when the Germans became bewitched. Thank God for America. Thank God for Israel.”

How do you feel about America?

“I love America. I adore America. Without America we would all be dead.”

Today, however…

“There is no however. I get this glorious feeling when I think about Americans. I wish I could express it better.”

Please try. It’s important.

“At that time the world was plunged in darkness. Nazis everywhere. Then the Americans came, and it became a war between good and evil.”

You saw it all up close and personal.

“Imagine the horror when the Nazis roped off our streets and began dragging Jews from their homes, schools, shops, schools and universities.”


“Then, when hope is lost…the Americans! The Americans came. How can I explain this glorious sight? It remains with me to this day.”

The naysayers…

“Let them say. I know what I know. King Solomon warned…do not be overly righteous, or too religious; in other words, too superior. We are all in this together.”

So, what you’re saying…

“What I’m saying is that we are once again in a war between good and evil; Israel and America on the one side, the rest of the world on the other. As it was for Abraham.”

But some people…

“I don’t care about the politics. Politics comes and goes. Truth and Torah Values remain the same. I only know what’s in my heart.”

We should do this more often.

“God Bless America. Am Yisroel Chai.”

New York-based bestselling American novelist Jack Engelhard writes regularly for Arutz Sheva.

He wrote the worldwide book-to-movie bestseller “Indecent Proposal,” the authoritative newsroom epic, “The Bathsheba Deadline,” followed by his coming-of-age classics, “The Girls of Cincinnati,” and, the Holocaust-to-Montreal memoir, “Escape from Mount Moriah.” For that and his 1960s epic “The Days of the Bitter End,” contemporaries have hailed him “The last Hemingway, a writer without peer, and the conscience of us all.” Website: www.jackengelhard.com
