A quorum of kabbalists held a prayer session today in Jerusalem in support of Mitt Romney Israeli Daily Yediot Ahronot has reported.

The GOP presidential candidate was served a new name, “Moshe Romney” with the suffix “Shlita” a title usually granted to the most venerable of rabbis.

The ten ultra-religious supplicants met in Jerusalem’s Ish Chayil yeshiva where they opened the ark—a ritual conducted on special occasions—and invoked divine intervention in today’s U.S. presidential election.

Yediot quoted Shmuel Ben-Atar, a haredi radio presenter who was present at the prayer session, as saying, “This kind of prayer can turn worlds upside down…We ask the people of Israel to pray that Obama – who doesn’t like Israel – is brought down.”

The article also noted that according to the prayer group “the secret formula that is certain to get Romney to win the presidency includes the repeated recitation of certain Psalms, a prayer for victory said over the open Torah ark – and giving a shekel to the needy.”

“People called us from America and asked us to bring about heavenly mercy,” Yediot quoted Ben-Atar as saying. “People around the world will pray tonight for Mitt “Moshe” Romney.”

    I am appalled that the mere mention of Kabbalist’s would pray for the defeat of an American President.What little i know about Kabbalah this amounts to pure fabrication.You defile the study of Kabbalah-Shame on you for writing such an article.The study of kabbalah is sacre and pure.

    I meant of course, Israelis, in Israel, being “for” Obama. I do know Israelis who live here, and who can vote, and they’re for Obama. Just wanted to add this before people write in saying, Hey, Israel isn’t the US, and Israelis cannot vote for a US President.

    Well, IF Obama wins, then G_d is on Obama’s side. Or would they, the Kabbalists, say this. They aren’t the only mystic Jews in the world, and many people I know, Jewish and quite spiritual, have voted for Obama. As to witches brew, we are, after all, he BREW. So why not? a little magic thrown into the chicken soup for the soul. Maybe miracles do happen, and maybe for those who like Obama, those miracles have meaning IF he wins.

    I think all this talk of Obama’s being negative towards Israel doesn’t prevent many Israelis from liking him and voting for him. So I would be cautious about too much mud slinging. And I would also be cautious in remarks about Who Speaks for G_d?

    We have a diverse world, and right now, Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, has won in Massachusetts. So did the Kabbalists forget her, in their prayers. They could also have prayed for Brown.

    I believe in Brownian Motion, and it could be, Brownian motion will bring people to Brown University to read a Diary that is deepy about the alchemy of words and astounding small miracles, aka, synchronicity.

    May Brownian Motion bring us all to our knees and may the spirituality of others, perhaps more powerful, upset the lobby the Kabbalists have on G_d and what G_d intends.
