Donald Elley of Bellingen:

If you’d like to feel closer to the Lord, listen to the beautiful, spiritual God-honouring worship songs, hymns and gospel songs that I publish and seek Him

Sit or lie quietly somewhere, or walk before Him- whatever works for you. And listen to the beautiful, gentle Holy Spirit inspired music.

Please note the contrast between this music and the hollow clamour of Hillsong and other modern “Christian” music that is more like a rock-show or even club music, than beautiful genuine Christian worship. This Hillsong-type music is soul-power, and not Holy Spirit music.

As you seek the Holy Spirit of Jesus in worship and prayer, you’ll find Him.

You can’t expect to find the Lord and His Presence if you’re sinning or living in sin. For example, adultery.

But if you genuinely want to escape from sinning or living in sin, no matter the gravity of the situation, you can go to Him in prayer and get answers to resolve the situation and get out of it. You have to be desperate to get the answers.

And to be so sick of sin and its darkness that it is your priority to get out of it.

Most modern Pentecostal churches tolerate and excuse sin in a way that wasn’t the case decades ago and before. Rather than look to these compromised churches and their heretical pastors and teachers, we ought look to the New Testament, and the teachings of Christ and the Apostles.

Peace be with you, the Holy Spirit’s peace, as you seek the Father through His Son Jesus for yourself.

Peter Allen had international fame and even married Lisa Minelli at one stage early in his career. Peter was her first husband.

Peter was heavily into the loose living and the highly promiscuous gay scene in America of the 1970s.

Another pedophile bites the dust.

Here we have a Jewish mother of eight children who wont even raise her head at the request of an Israeli judge while being sentenced to be extradited to Melbourne, Australian to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse. That is, sexual abuse of Jewish students at a Jewish school in Melbourne who were entrusted to her care, but treated otherwise.

Very soon Malka Leifer will “Call Australian Home” for a long time, maybe for ten to twelve years in a Melbourne women’s prison.

Malka Leifer: Former Melbourne principal to be extradited to face child

sex abuse claims

A court has ordered former principal Malka Leifer be extradited to Melbourne from Israel to face dozens of charges of child sexual abuse allegedly committed during her time at an ultra orthodox school.

She is wanted on 74 charges related to child sexual abuse from her time as the head of the Adass Israel School in Elsternwick, in Melbourne’s southeast.

The decision was made in the Jerusalem district court on Monday afternoon that the former principal can be returned to Victoria to face court proceedings.

The 53-year-old fled Australia in 2008 after allegations against her surfaced. After allegations of sexual abuse arose in 2008 against Leifer, the school where she worked bought her tickets and flew her to Israel where she has remained ever since.

An extradition request was made by Victorian Police in 2014.

In 2017, an Israeli court declared Leifer was unfit to stand trial due to mental illness, but she was arrested again in 2018.

A sting operation found that she had been living a normal and healthy life, with hidden camera footage showing her going about her business with ease.

She is accused of dozens of counts of sexual assault and rape of students at the ultra-Orthodox Adass Israel school in Melbourne, where she was principal.

Leifer has maintained her innocence.

“Exhaling years of holding our breath! We truly value every person standing with us in our refusal to remain silent! Today our hearts are smiling!” one of her alleged victims Dassi Erlich wrote on social media after the finding.

Ms Erlich and her sisters Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper are among those who have accused the principal of abuse.

They were the first to be granted permission by the courts to identify themselves since new Victorian laws were introduced in February to gag sexual abuse victims from speaking out even if they consented to identification.

“It’s a relief to be honest,” Federal Labor MP Josh Burns, who has been one of of the most vocal supporters of Malka Leifer’s alleged victims, told the ABC’s Matt Doran.

“This has been over nine years since Dassi, Nicole and Elly gave their statements to police and over nine years of a rollercoaster of justice being dangled in front of these sisters and then being ripped away.

“It has been such a rollercoaster of emotions for three extraordinary, brave Australian women who have at every stage fought for justice and at every stage fought for Malka Leifer to face the 74 counts of child sex abuse in an Australian court and today’s decision means she will and it is a huge relief.”

Child abuse activist Cathy Kezelman said the Blue Knot Foundation supported the extradition decision, saying it was long overdue.

“For her victims to stand up and courageously speak of the unconscionable crimes against them as children is enormously difficult,” she said.

“To have to withstand a rollercoaster of court machinations and inexplicable delays for a chance at justice is torturous.

“The rejection of Malka Leifer’s appeal against extradition on the grounds of mental illness, in the face of video evidence to the contrary, was a watershed moment in this saga.

“It is time for Malka Leifer to face the 74 charges against her.”

It comes more than a decade after Leifer fled and more than 70 court hearings.

Lawyers for the woman have already flagged an intention to appeal the finding.

“There are a couple of stages that still can be appealed, but in recent times the higher courts have thrown out the appeals really quickly and they’ve also mentioned in those decisions to dismiss the appeals, that this case has gone long enough,” Mr Burns said.

Accused child sex abuser Malka Leifer to be extradited to Australia

Accused child sex abuser Malka Leifer will be extradited to Australia, according to a final ruling judgment handed down by the Jerusalem District Court on Monday.

Leifer will remain in Israeli prison until she is extradited.

Judge Hannah Miriam Lomp asked the security guards supervising Leifer, who appeared from jail via video link, if she would like to lift her head for the judgment. Leifer, who has kept her turbaned head bowed in previous hearings to date, again refused to look up.

Judge Lomp approved Leifer’s extradition after years of judicial proceedings, and it is now up to Israel’s Minister of Justice, Avi Nissenkorn, to finally approve the order.

The judge was free to approve extradition after the accused lost an appeal in Israel’s Supreme Court earlier this month that attempted to claim Leifer was unfit for extradition due to her mental state, which, according to her defence lawyers, worsens nearer the time of upcoming hearings.

The state prosecution hailed the victory, saying: “We are pleased to see that justice has been done.”

Leifer’s defence said that this was not the end of the road promising more appeals.

“Those who think that this process is a closed chapter will now be disappointed,” advocate Nick Kaufman said. “There is a long way to go before Ms Leifer is surrendered to Australia, if at all.”

The latest court decision as well as the ministry approval can and will be appealed by the defence to the Supreme Court.

The former principal of Melbourne’s ultra-orthodox Adass Israel all-girls school in Elsternwick in the city’s inner south-east, faces 74 charges of rape and child sexual assault of three former students.

Dassi Erlich, one of Leifer’s alleged victims along with her sisters Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper, said it was a “historic moment”.

“We’ve been non-stop smiling since we heard the news,” she told The Age on Monday.

“We’ve been waiting for nine years and we didn’t realise how long we’d have to wait.

“It’s still surreal for us.”

Five years ago, Ms Erlich was awarded $1.27 million in damages against the Adass Israel school and her sisters also received out-of-court settlements from the school.

Victim advocate Manny Waks, who predicted that Leifer would appeal against the decision, said it was a “great day for justice”.

“It has taken 71 court hearings to get to this point. It has been Israel’s shame,” he said.

“But today is finally about a just outcome. Thanks to the incredible courage of three sisters – Nicole, Dassi and Elly – who have fought a fight for 10 years…”

Labor MP Josh Burns, whose electorate takes in the Adass Israel School, said the fight for Leifer’s extradition had taken far too long, but her alleged victims never relented.

“They have never given up,” he said.

“We have been standing behind them, proudly and defiantly.

“Justice has taken far too long. But finally, justice has won the day.”

Mr Burns said while there might be further appeals, the Israeli judicial system should deal with them as quickly as possible and called on the Justice Minister to give the extradition the final sign off without any further delays.

Liberal MP Dave Sharma, Australia’s former ambassador to Israel, said it was a “welcome victory for justice and the victims of abuse worldwide”.

“Israel’s Ministry of Justice deserves full credit for their relentless and unstinting pursuit of this case, despite many setbacks. I welcome the resolution of what had become a point of tension in Australia’s otherwise strong bilateral relationship with Israel,” he said.

“To see this day come, after being the ambassador to first hand over the extradition request to Israel six years ago, is immensely satisfying. For me, this was unfinished business from my term. Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper deserve huge credit for their bravery and persistence. We would not have achieved this without them.”

Former Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu, who has supported the family, said the outcome was “another very big step on a still very big staircase”.

Mr Baillieu said he expected Leifer to appeal again “given her track record”, but was confident the appeal would be “quickly dispensed with” as the last appeal had been.

The Zionist Federation of Australia welcomed the decision saying in a statement that it was “long overdue”.

“Leifer ought to accept this decision without further needless appeals and face her accusers in an Australian court. It is well past time to bring Leifer home. The survivors deserve justice. We commend the bravery of the survivors who have never wavered in their determination and commitment to bring Leifer back to Australia to face justice,” Zionist Federation of Australia President Jeremy Leibler said.

The National Council of Jewish Women of Australia’s Melinda Jones said it was a “travesty that Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper are still waiting for their day in court”.

“Now that it has been agreed Leifer can be extradited, the Israeli and Australian governments must work together to expedite her extradition so they do not have to wait any longer,” she said.

Leifer was first arrested in Israel in 2014 after Australia lodged a request for her extradition, however, the proceedings were initially dismissed in 2016 as she was deemed mentally unfit to stand trial for extradition.

The former principal was rearrested in 2018 and extradition proceedings were reignited following surveillance and wiretapping carried out by the police, after suspicions arose that Leifer was faking her inability to function.

She was observed undertaking day-to-day activities such as talking on the phone, shopping, and travelling unsupervised to other cities outside of her remote West Bank settlement home.

Since February of that year she has been held in Israel’s sole women’s prison, charged with obstruction of justice.
