A US-based technology company released a video earlier this month about a new wearable translation device. With the help of this device, an English-speaking man is able to communicate with a French-speaking woman in whom he has a romantic interest. In just two weeks, the video had over a million views on Facebook .
“This wearable uses translation technology to allow two people to speak different languages but still clearly understand each other,” Andrew Ochoa, Founder and CEO of Waverly Labs, which produces the device, explains in the video,

Upon watching this technology in action, it’s natural that the curse of the Tower of Babel would occur to the Bible-minded.
Originally, all humans spoke a single language and were easily able to understand one another.
And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. Genesis 11:1
A later verse in Genesis chapter 11 describes how God dispersed the people all over the earth and gave them different languages. He did so in order to disrupt their plan to build a high tower from which to wage war against God Himself.
Therefore was the name of it called Bavel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11:9
There is a prophecy about the restoration of a single human language at the End of Days. The prophecy comes from the Book of Zephaniah, a prophet whose central theme is the events surrounding the world’s final judgement, sometimes known as The Great Day of the Lord. Zephaniah is one of the 12 minor prophets believed to have prophesied around the time of Jeremiah, who wrote the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations.
Zephaniah prophesied that, after the final judgement, God will restore a safa b’rurah, a single pure language, to all people remaining on earth.
For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language that they may all call upon the name of the LORD to serve Him with one consent. Zephaniah 3:9
In a comment on Genesis 11:1, The Israel Bible teaches that “Jewish tradition maintains that the “pure language” (safa b’rurah) that Zephaniah promises is the language of Hebrew and that in future times the world will begin to learn Hebrew, the language of Creation.”
Rabbi Alon Anava, a former Jewish atheist who came close to God and became an Orthodox rabbi after he had a near-death experience, speaks to audiences all over the world about the imminent Redemption. He told Breaking Israel News, “I see a beautiful connection that this device is another siman, another sign, that Moshiach (Messiah) is extremely close, that the Nations will be back, united as one, and will be able, with the Jews, to serve Hashem (God) as a unity together and not be separated from each other and obviously not be separated from Hashem.
“I see a very big connection. I see how Hashem is throwing us hints, constantly, through technology, and through anything, that the geula (redemption) is coming. The signs of the geula [are] being manifested into the world in the language of technology.”
In his comments to Breaking Israel News, Rabbi Anava compared GPS technology, which uses “satellites in space that track us and see where we’re going and guide us” to “the concept of having Hashem above us, guiding us and watching us and overseeing us.
“So we see that constantly, in the last 20 years, the knowledge of Hashem and the signs of Moshiach are manifesting in technology, so we can start relating to what’s going to happen when Moshiach comes. Every couple of months, a new invention comes to show us that the geula is coming.
“What we need to learn from that is that we really have to get with the program and understand that with every day that passes, we’re getting one day closer to the geula. Hashem is basically preparing the ground so we can relate with Godly concepts, and so that we can see with our own eyes. The world is even evolving to a different dimension.
“Hashem is telling us and the rest of the world, ‘Get ready. Moshiach is coming. I’m going to fix the world. The world is going to go back to its original state, which is called Gan Eden (the Garden of Eden).’”
Waverly Labs plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign to help manufacture the translation device, currently named “The Pilot”. According to information shared with Breaking Israel News, the software for the device will initially include “European-based Romance and Germanic languages, followed by other world languages, including Slavic, Semitic, Hindi and East Asian.”

Giant figures are seen during the 87th carnival parade of Aalst February 15, 2015
The annual carnival in Aalst, Belgium, is expected to take place on Sunday with even more antisemitic elements than in previous years.
Aalst’s organizers have sold hundreds of “rabbi kits” for revelers to dress as hassidic Jews in the carnival’s parade. The kit includes oversized noses, sidelocks (peyot) and black hats. The organizers plan to bring back floats similar to the one displayed in 2019 featuring oversized dolls of Jews, with rats on their shoulders, holding banknotes.

Pope Francis on Sunday warned against “inequitable solutions” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying they would only be a prelude to new crises, in an apparent reference to US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace proposal.
Francis made his comments in the southern Italian port city of Bari, where he traveled to conclude a meeting of bishops from all countries in the Mediterranean basin.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have reached an agreement to end a five-month long trade dispute, officials said on Thursday.
The dispute, which opened a new front in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, began in September when the PA announced a boycott of Israel calves. The PA exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank under interim peace deals.

Disturbing images emerged on Sunday of the annual carnival at Aalst, Belgium, showing an astounding number of antisemitic themes, costumes, displays and statements.
Israeli journalist Raphael Ahren documented people dressed as caricatures of Orthodox Jews, a fake “wailing wall” attacking critics of the parade, blatantly antisemitic characters and puppets wearing traditional Jewish clothes and sporting huge noses.

The stench of anti-Semitism always hovers over Switzerland’s Lake Geneva when the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is meeting there. The foul emanations reached a new nadir last week with UNHRC’s publication of a “database” of companies doing business in the disputed territories in Israel.
Following the publication of the list, Bruno Stagno Ugarte, deputy director for advocacy of NGO Human Rights Watch, stated, “The long-awaited release of the U.N. settlement business database should put all companies on notice: To do business with illegal settlements [sic] is to aid in the commission of war crimes.”
One of the many things that annoys me about politicians is how sure they are of themselves. Everything is black and white. Every idea is good or bad. Take globalism, for example. You either love it or hate it. It works or it doesn’t.
Another thing that annoys me is how so much of a politician’s life revolves around power: Do everything you can to get it, and everything you can to keep it.
Why am I ranting? Because, while our politicians have been consumed with power and the media with the fights over power, a threat to our nation has been virtually ignored.
Blue and White Party leaders Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid are establishing their diplomatic credentials in the immediate run-up to Israel’s March 2 election with an insult to a U.S. administration that has arguably provided Israel with more diplomatic gains than any previous administration.
The Times of Israel reported that at a campaign stop in front of English-speaking Israelis, Gantz accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “of neglecting bipartisan ties in favor of exclusive support from U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republican Party,” under the headline “Gantz pledges to mend ties with U.S. Democrats if elected.”
Bipartisanship was in short supply at the State of the Union address earlier this month—with one notable exception.
Nancy Pelosi had been looking dyspeptic, shuffling the papers she would later rip to shreds, when President Donald Trump reminded his audience that “the United States is leading a 59-nation diplomatic coalition against the socialist dictator of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.”
Suddenly, the House Speaker applauded. Trump then introduced “the true and legitimate president of Venezuela: Juan Guaidó.”
The law professor Alan Dershowitz has thrown a legal hand-grenade into America’s political civil war by claiming to have evidence that former President Barack Obama “personally asked” the FBI to investigate someone “on behalf” of Obama’s “close ally,” billionaire financier George Soros.
He made his cryptic remark in an interview defending U.S. President Donald Trump against claims he interfered in the prosecution of his former adviser, Roger Stone.
