Please answer poll and feel free to comment. I'm wondering if there is a discrepancy between how Israelis and Americans view and think about Moshiach coming soon. I'm not trying to exclude other countries so feel free to post below Smile

Moshiach can come anytime. He doesn’t need Coronavirus to facilitate his arrival. And I don’t think that this Coronavirus craziness is any worse than cholera or typhus outbreaks, or the Holocaust for that matter. I think it’s silly to pin Moshiach’s arrival on the weather or any particular crisis.

Last I checked, Moshiach is coming because Yidden do Teshuva / Mitzvos, etc. Moshiach's coming was never contingent on people going crazy.

I davka found a reference to this in Yishayahu 26:20, not Yehezkel, although there might be a reference there too.
Don't know what it's referring to though.

ch"v. I wanted to see if there was a discrepancy between the way Americans and Israelis view the situation. If I wanted to just see who thinks moshiach is coming I would have just asked who thinks moshiach is coming with a yes answer and a no answer, but I was specifically looking to see if there was a difference between these two cultures. May we all merit to see moshiach come soon in our time!

Estimates for the number of people killed by the 1918 flu range from 17 to 100 million, the world population then was 1.8 to 1.9 billion.

For the Black Death estimates are 45% to 60% of the European population.

I love this post so much!

Moshiach can come any day, regardless of what is going on. We don't know why Moshiach didn't come during the Shoah, or the Black Death, or any other time of crisis.

Ahavas Isroel, teshuvah, and achdus is what we need right now.

I can imagine people quoting this pasuk during the Gulf war 30 years ago, as well. Or during any rocket attack on Southern/Northern Israel for that matter.

Yes but if we do merit the geula now then those event would also count as being in the period of almost the geula.
