Education, Humanity and Pirkei Avot: Why Moshiach Now! fliers in Crown Heights?

What if those communities have experienced continuous attacks or hostilities from strangers, especially when looking back through history until today? Tree of Life in Pittsburgh. Chabad of Poway.

Part 1 of Teaching Evidence-Based Wisdom About THE Investigation Affecting All Governments and You
Benjamin Netanyahu, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Tun Mahathir bin Mohamed, Scott Morrison, Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Bashar Al-Assad, and other world leaders: Are you aware of police reports recently filed in Malaysia and Israel about an investigation spanning more than 4 years, exposing ground-breaking details about the largest global crisis today which will solve many problems and permanently improve diplomatic relations, societies, courts, and economies of all countries, including your country?
