   Only edition. [1] pp. folio 325:210 mm., creased.
   Strong acerbic attack on Aggudah and a prohibition on working with them. The text begins by comparing them to the meraglim and the ten princes of the tribes, that the children of Israel should not follow after them, false prophets and leaders as Yeruvam, turning from the way of the Lord. One should not hearken to them. Possibly this is a test prio to the redemption. It quotes from the Zohar, that God does not want to accept the Erev Rav, but Moses did so thinking it would be good to enter them into holiness. Instead, contact with them caused a kilkul in Israel and this is so for all generations. In this generation, the war with Amalek is with the Zionists who seduce the religious who follow them, for they have a different name in each generation. Now they are Zionists and it is necessary to combat them with great personal sacrifice. Initially the Nozrim were Jews, once Karaim, followers of Shabbatai Zevi, then Makilim and reformed and now Zionists. Even if the government was comprised of people on the level of Tannaim and Amoraim it would be prohibited to form a government prior to the ingathering of the exiles and to anticipate the end, for doing so is denial of the Torah and faith. It particularly mentions Hinuch ha-Azmai, for taking government money and thus uprooting the Torah. The author of this flier refers the reader to the book ve-Yoel Moshe. The flier continues in this vein in greater detail.
