You can see the full text of my post "Parshat Balak" right here, since Israel Truth Times seems to have been tampered with, for now

Parshat Balak: Are Benedikt and Obama Bilaam and Balak's gilgulim? An old post revisited, with corrections and updates



 Here is the earlier version:

http://israeltruthtimes.blogspot.co.il/2009/06/some-thoughts-about-benedikt-and-obama.html

I think the general idea was correct, but the actors were wrong. The Torah and the Midrash tell us that Bilaam was a grandson of Lavan, and some say he was Lavan's gilgul. Lavan means WHITE. This pope is all white. Bilaam was from Babylon/ Aram Naharaim. Catholicism is a Babylonian religion. He was a great philosopher, just like this pope, and a great sorcerer, just like this pope. He hated Jews with a passion, just like this pope.

And Balak was half Moabite, half Midianite - just like this mulatto president; he was not of royal origin, in fact was a foreigner who was chosen to be king over Moab better to fight the Israelites - just like this president, who is NOT a natural American citizen, but was promoted out of the blue by secret supporters, Soros/ CFR types, and was chosen, it seems ultimately, so he could cause Am Yisrael more trouble; he also hates the Jews and Israel with a passion, actually just today invited Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian president to visit him in America. Balak was a great general; this Obama, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, can't stop running from one war to another. Barak's name has MOAB in it, and also Hussein, just like the present -day king of Moab, which is part of Jordan ( the other part is Eretz Yisrael, and Edom too). And just like Benedikt he is a sorcerer in his own right, he knows how to mesmerize crowds and charm people through words and lies.

Together Bilaam and Balak hoped to curse Israel, but failed.

At the end Bilaam perished; however he managed to advise Balak to get Midianite - black - women - to entice the Israelites to worship their foreign gods. In that they succeeded. As a result 24,000 Jews died in a plague until Pinchas came along....End of story next parsha.

Here is a dialogue I had with Dov-Bear Bar Leib about Balak-Balaam, and their gilgulim.




 me: What I see is with Clinton coming, the Medinah is upping the ante against us.
 Dov:  Have you checked the Euro lately?
You should.  It is at an all time low
 me:  OK. you write about the Euro, I write about the developments.
Trying to deJudaize Israel some more
More Falash Mura brought in
Exam in the schools full of Catholicism
Migron
The fence
The assault against Judaism is all out once more, just worse
 Dov:  The developments will mean nothing if the Euro collapses.  There are 14 days of Nekorot and nine days of Tohu.
 me:  What is Nekorot?
How could it mean nothing? Since when do they care?
 Dov:  Nekorot are the slams of a battering ram on the keilim that make up the world of sheker.  The battering ram entered the city on Friday afternoon.
The city of spiritual Rome has been breached.  Watch the battering ram at work until Rosh Chodesh.  The Euro is at 1.226 as we speak.
 me:  How would you know that the city of spiritual Rome has been breached?
 Dov:  because of a conversation that I am going to have with Rav Winston tonight.
in about ten minutes
 me:  Going to have???
 Dov:  We had the same conversation about 5 years ago.  I just need to clarify some matters.
Nekorot is from the shoresh to gouge or to peck
The woodpecker pecks away at the tree.  It finally breaches the hard outer layer and the wood underneath is soft.
 me:  Yes. OK, so the battering ram battered Yerushalayim, right?
 Dov:  on the 17th
 me:  But now you are saying Rome is being battered. What is the evidence to that?
 Dov:  The Euro fell below 1.23.  It is at an all time low.
 me: So what does THAT have to do with the angel of Esav, Samael?
You are saying he is being beaten as of today
 Dov:  The Euro is the Ayin ra
 Dov:  It is the essence of the Ayin Ra.
 me:  Again, that is YOUR interpretation. Very nice, but who is to say true????
 Dov:  Something I figured out 14 years ago.  When I was learning a peirush on the last currency of Edom will be the currency of the Ayin Ra.  And Euro is roshei hateivot for Ayin Ra.
I checked it out with the Skulier Rebbe years ago.  He was maskim.
 me:  Anyway , first of all there is no proof it is the last currency of Edom! The British pound is still standing too. And so is the dollar
  me:  And the DOLLAR has the AYIN on it, NOT the Euro.
Actually I was reading about Parshat Balak yesterday. Very connected to the all-seeing eye on the dollar.
 Dov:  The Euro is the last one to be introduced.
When I said last i mean the last currency to be introduced into Edom
  Dov:  The other currencies are much older.
 me:  Not the last currency to fall???
 Dov:  nope not necessarily.
 me:  There could be more, who is to say
And the dollar does have a strong connection to the Ayin Ra, and it is not falling yet, not quite yet
 Dov:  It represents that ancient alliance between Germany and the Catholic Church, one of your favorite topics
 me:  What, the Euro, or the dollar?
 Dov:  the Euro
 me:  How is that?
 Dov:  It unifies The Deutschmark with the other currencies in Europe including the Italian Lira which was the currency of the Vatican.
 Dov:  And the Talmud says that when there is unity between a united Germany and The Vatican, Amalek goes forth to destroy the world.
 me:  Agreed about that. And they are. Now.
But who is to say they are stopping because of your theory about the Ayin Ra???
 Dov:  correct.  Rome now has a German pope and an Italian central banker.
stopping what?
 me:  It has everything to do with Parshat Balak. I wrote a post a couple of years ago.
Will continue this thread in a minute,
You say that the spiritual wall of Rome has been breached,
  Stopping to destroy the world because they are being destroyed.
That is a strong statement you are making. With very flimsy evidence, sorry to say
 Dov:  yes, it is broken.  Now that the Euro has broken the 1.23 barrier, it is becoming a joke.  ok, we will see better over the next couple of days.  It will become clearer then.
 me:  But what I was about to tell you, and I am repeating that - you see I pull old rabbits out of hats too -
  I believe that Bilaam and Balak are being reincarnated today. Just like Bilaam was the gilgul of Lavan, today the gilgul of Bilaam is Benedikt, as white as they come, a sorcerer, the babylonian sorcerer. And Balak is reincarnated - the half Moabite half Midianite who wasn't even Moab's citizen but they made him king anyway to destroy Israel, the other magician, with the name OBAMA, from MOAB, is BALAK _ BARAK, with Hussein for good measure, just as proof. They have made an alliance to destroy Israel, getting the other nations to join them, using magic, trying to sever our connection to Hashem in so many ways, inducing us to immorality, wanting to reduce our numbers, all the wishes of Balak and Bilaam.
Will it end like Bilaam and Balak? Benedikt is the philosopher, the brilliant writer, the visionary, with the evil eye.
Balak is the king with the armies
the general of generals
So just during Parshat Balak they are intensifying the attack, with Clinton coming here, introducing Xtianity in schools, removing Jews from holy places, etc. Surprised they don't have a love parade right in the middle of Jerusalem with naked people everywhere. 

 Dov:  We will likely see shvirat hakeilim until the end of Tamuz now.  So by Rosh Chodesh Av, pray that all these annoyances will be mute.  Let us wait and see.  We will have a better idea over the next couple of days.
 me:What do you mean by seeing Shvirat hakeilim?
 Dov:  Benedikt is Bilaam and who is Balak?
 me:  OBAMA of MOAB, same letters. With the name Hussein for good measure, just in case we didn't notice his connection to the Land of Moab/ Jordan
 Dov:  wow.  even has the same letters
 me:  Yes. And Balak was half Moabite, half MIDIANITE! Same color as Barak
And, Barak - Balak, same letters almost
Clear alliance between those two.
Barak and Benedikt
 Dov:  yes, etymologically, Barack and Balak are the same.
 me:  Both names Barak and Benedikt, start with B too.
And Benedikt is very LAVAN, with Babylonian religion. Bilaam was from Aram Naharaim, the grandson of Lavan, they say, and/ or his gilgul. I say he is the gilgul of Lavan and Bilaam
While Barak is the gilgul of Balak
Both sorcerers, Bilaam great philosopher, just like this pope, but for evil. Both hate the Jews with a passion and want to destroy us, have a strong alliance.
And the Ayin Ra prominently displayed. Just like with the Euro, the dollar. But Bilaam is the prophet with the seeing open eye
Ayin Ra as you say
 Dov:  The dollar is a bit different.  America at its core has a covenant with G-d to build Olam HaZeh
 me: OK, fine, but meanwhile you are mentioning the Ayin Ra,. and Bilaam is all about Ayin Ra
 Dov:  to serve Him to the 33rd level in order to prosper.
America is the Golden Calf not the Evil Eye
 me:  OK, but on the dollar bill, which is NOT America, remember, it is the Federal Reserve, which is from the Vatican
The bankers are all connected to Rome, and the dollar bill is a Federal Reserve note
 Dov:  America will be destroyed on the 17th of Tamuz in the future.  It is possible that the Euro will be destroyed this year.
 me:  You don't get what I am saying
 Dov:  yes, I read about the Federal Reserve being under Vatican control
 me:  I am saying that this Parsha is connected to the Ayin Ra. just as you mentioned the Ayin Ra and the Euro in current events.
And that those two are connected to these events through the Parsha too
 Dov:  yes, I can see how Obama might be Balak.  That seems possible.
 me:  Obama and Benedikt. You see the Euro falling,
So just as they failed in parshat Balak, they seem to be failing too, as you imply
Dov: Yes, they will fail by Tisha B'Av.  It will all backfire.
Obama will survive this for now.  The Euro will not
 me:  Just like Balak survived but not Bilaam
  me:  And Balak brought the Midianite women to seduce Am Yisrael and win. What will Barak pull out of his hat? Gay men?
  me:  I know! Midianite women! Naked black Sudanese in Tel-Aviv  brothels, etc!
To seduce Jewish men
Just like Athens is full of Nigerian prostitutes, now we will have the Eritrean prostitutes in the streets of Israel, who will entice the Jewish men to worship their gods. What do you say?
Even better;
THEY WANT TO BRING THE FALASH MURA TO ISRAEL TO MINGLE WITH AM YISRAEL. THE FALASH MURA ARE XTIANS, NOT JEWS.. This is the Midianite ploy all over.
Who will fall for it?
 Dov:  It is amazing that somehow we survive through all this,  for all intents and purposes we should not be here.  This is why, I say when all looks lost like it does right now, and Barry Chamish sees checkmate, this is when the yeshua occurs.
 Dov:  The Sudanese have served one big purpose.  Non-Erev Rav Jews in Tel Aviv can now look with disgust at their Erev Rav masters who tell them to simply be tolerant of the invasion.
It has served its purpose.
  me:  Yes. But isn't it amazing that just during this parsha they speak about bringing Falash Mura, black non-Jews, to MINGLE with Jews, not just Sudanese who are clearly foreigners. They want to pull a ploy. and pass these schwarzes as Jews, so real Jews will mingle with them!
Falash Mura are converted Ethiopian Jews, they are NOT Jewish
 Dov:  The Ethiopian Jews themselves know that the Falash Mura in many cases may not be Jews.  I remember this story from years ago.
 me:  The Sudanese ploy didn't work, so now they are bringing the Falash Mura; many Israelis like black women, and if they think Ethiopian they think Jewish.
 Dov:  We have been through this before.  We have 200,000 Russian goyim here?
 me:  Exactly. Anything to dilute Judaism. But here there is deception too. Most Israelis I don't believe know that the Falash Mura are goyim, do they?
So many will intermarry, or just sleep with the girls,
the Midianite episode all over, complete with black women
The question is, will we have a Zimri here?
And, the question is, WHEN do they intend to bring them? they said it would be over by 2014. But when do they plan to begin?
With Clinton coming, I have a feeling it will be right away. This must be part of the plan 'suggested ' by Barak/ Balak, plan HATCHED in ROME by Bilaam the sorcerer.
  Dov:  Well all seems lost.  But G-d is quicker.  The incompetents here are not running the show.  He is about to unseat the inmates running the asylum.  I am going to give this the three weeks that it deserves.  And then we will banter either about a hidden miracle or the destruction of the state.Plus many Falash Mura are Marranos.  The problem is that they are mixed in with those who are not.
 me:  Yes. True.
There are quite a few Ethiopian goyim in the mix
Will the rabbis expose this? Will they force them to convert to be accepted as Jews?
And how many of those conversions will be sincere? Or are we just going to add Erev Rav layer upon Erev Rav layer???
 Dov:  Sit back and reflect.  At the turn of the 1900s there were about 100,000 Jews here.  Now there are about 6 million.  We are coming from a tumultuous exile of so many parts and countries.  Somehow G-d is keeping track.  Anyway good night for now.
 me:  Good night.

    1. Re: Bilaam:

    "Bilaam was from Babylon/ Aram Naharaim".

    We are not told where he was from, save for the name of a city, “Petora.” Balak went to him, however, partly because he knew the root of Yaakov; meaning, he was from the source. Lavan fits the description. Aram Naharaim was not Bavel. Bavel was in Shinar. Aram is Syria. Jordan is also Aram. We see invaders crossing the Dead Sea “from Aram.” Padan Aram, where the Avot and Imahot came from, was part of Aram Naharaim. Despite the obvious reference to the Euphrates and Tigres, I do not believe it was north of the Euphrates. I think it was centered in the Gil’ad; northern Jordan today. Look at the story of Ya’akov fleeing from Lavan. A man on horseback or camel can travel c. 25 km in a day. Traveling with herds and flocks and small children, 10 km a day is good. Ya’akov had ten days travel time with a 6 day head start. Lavan overtook them in 4 days in the Gil’ad 100 km from the starting point. Catholicism is a Babylonian religion. No problem. Ideas are geographically constrained. Someone living in Padan Aram could learn it with no problem.

    Re: Midian:

    Midian was one of the sons of Avraham and Ketura, who was Hagar, according to the midrash. So Midian was identical genetically to Ishmael. He was not black.


    Re: Edom's location:

    I don’t think Edom was east of the Arava in those days. “Idumea” in Roman times was, but I think the Edomites had moved from the original Se’ir in the Negev. I would love to be able to sit with someone and track all the accounts in the Torah and put them on the map and see where all these places have to be. I think I am right about this, however, and I feel much more sure about Padan Aram.

    Re: general of generals:

    This makes sense, that they would bring in a top general to rule (I never knew about Balak being a general) because Moav was being continuously eaten up by Emor and Midian. Moav had once extended to share a border with Ammon but by this time, Heshbon, the capital of Emor, was on an island in the River Arnon, Moav’s border!

    Re: Midian again:

    Again, where do you find that Midian was black?

    Re:Balak- Barak:

    The change between “L” and “R” is a standard one, even in linguistics.

    Re:... And Balak brought the Midianite women:

    In the Text, it appears that Bilaam brought the Midianite women.

  4. My response to Jack -- see his commentaries above:

    Jack,

    Thanks for a lot of clarifications. Let me try to answer. I will post this dialogue by the way, with your permission.


    According to the Book The Midrash says, it says that Pethor was in Aram Naharaim. They also say that according to the Gemara , Sanhedrin 105a, Bilam was Lavan's son; according to Tanchuma Vayeitze, he was Lavan himself. Sefer Zekukin Denurah says that Bilam was Lavan's Gilgul.

    Aram-naharaim

    Meaning: Aram of the two rivers.

    This name is used to refer to Mesopotamia (as it is translated in Gen. 24:10), the country enclosed between the Tigris River on the east and the Euphrates River on the west (Ps. 60, title); called also the “land of Aram” (Hos. 12:12, NRSV) i.e., the open country of Aram; in the King James Bible, “country of Syria.” Padan-aram was a portion of this country.

    Which country used to be called mesopotamia?

    Iraq

    Which country was called Mesopotamia?

    Which country was called mesopotamia?. ---- Iraq!!!.
    Is mesopotamia called kurdistan today?

    No. The area commonly called "Mesopotamia" is today mostly in Iraq, with portions also in Iran, Syria, and Turkey.
    Mesopotamia today is called what?

    Large parts of Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran.
    What is the region of Mesopotamia called today?

    Iraq

    According to Xtian scholars:


    The geographical name Padan-aram has been found only in Genesis (eg. 28:2), and its meaning and exact location are uncertain. Many scholars believe that Padan-aram is an alternate name for Mesopotamia (24:10), the northern region of the Euphrates River, in the vicinity of Haran, which figures prominently in Genesis as the patriarchs’ ancestral home. “Mesopotamia” in Hebrew is Aram-haharaim, meaning “Aram of the two rivers”- the Euphrates and the Tigris.


    Interesting Dvar Torah re: Lavan. His character fits Benedikt like a glove, frankly!

    http://www.vbm-torah.org/archive/intparsha/bereishit/07-65vayetze.htm

    So what religion was Lavan? Avraham ran away from Nimrod, who was the main figure of Babylonian religion, if I recall. His family went north it seems. They left from Ur, went north, Nachor also. Did Nachor change religions? Did Haran change religion? Didn't only Avraham change religion?

    Those are questions, I don't have answers. Can we say that their religion was Babylonian? It was polytheistic for sure, since they had gods. Interesting that the Sikhs have a ceremony called Lavan ( just found out today).

    Re: Obama and Yishmael, we don't have a conflict here; I know that Midian was not of Chamite race, by black I meant dark-skinned, I probably should have specified. If you look at my original post I did not call the Midianites black. The truth is, Barak is not black either, he is pretty much a Midianite color, and he is an Ishmaelite for all practical purposes. When I meant black, I meant dark-skinned, which the Midianites were. I was lumping all dark-skinned races together, as opposed to Lavan, white. After all it says that Tsippora was black - obviously she was not a bat Cham, but she was dark-skinned. So is the mulatto. True, he has black genes, but he himself is brown. Now regarding the Falashas, are they mamash black? They are also sort of a mix, you can usually tell an Ethiopian from the rest of the Schwarzes that flood this place don't you? If you look at the map, you will see that Eritrea, Ethiopia, are right across Yemen, on the other side of the Red Sea. There must have been a lot of mixing between those races, I suspect. So could they qualify as Midianites in a way? After all Midian is the northern part of Saudi Arabia bordering Jordan, isn't it?

    Re: Edom: I don't have a head for it right now, but I had done quite a bit or research for a paper re: where Moshe stopped to make the copper serpent, and if I recall it was on the border of Edom and on the other side of the Jordan. If you read the "Book of the Wars of Hashem', a lot of those places they mention right after the copper serpent episode are right around Moab, the Arnon river, etc. They were very close. It would take hours and hours to decipher exactly which place is which, I did spend quite a few hours years ago doing that, but I forgot most of it, unfortunately. I have the paper somewhere, but no time to look for it.

    Balak was chosen because he was a war hero, a mighty warrior long before he became king. According to the Ramban the people elevated him because of their fear of Israel. My source, the Stone Edition, and " Rokach" from the Midrash Says.

    According to what I learned, Bilaam ADVISED Balak to bring the Midianite women. He didn't do it himself, as he has already been dismissed by Balak. That was his parting advice.

    First of all, leave aside Christian scholarship as regards anything to do with this Land or the Torah. They have an agenda and, furthermore, they do not really understand the Torah because they reject Torah sheb’al peh. Furthermore, many of the places they locate are according to the word of Constantine’s mother, Helena, who identified them, supposedly, by Ruah HaKodesh. She did not have that and many of the places are demonstrably wrong, starting with Mt. Sinai. We have to start with the Text itself and compare all the stories in Tanakh that mention a place and locate it so that it makes sense in all the stories.

    Read the Ramban on the first mention of Ir Nahor. Why is the city that Terah is going to named after his son and not after himself, the father? And if it is named for one of his sons, why Nahor and not Avraham. Who is more important? The Ramban's conclusion, in short, is that the family went from Haran to Ur Kasdim but Nahor stayed behind. When the family washed out in Ur Kasdim and returned to Padan Aram, it was properly “the city of Nahor.” The Ramban does not mention that Nahor was not only the name of Terah's eldest son but also the name of his father, which would have been another legitimate reason to call the place “Ir Nahor.” Perhaps the reason the Ramban did not mention that was because, maybe, Terah’s father, Nahor, was already deceased. I don’t see any way to know that but the Ramban knew a great deal more than I and he might have known. Actually, however, I suspect that “Ir Nahor” was the actual name of the city and that it was founded by one of the two men named “Nahor.” I incline to the view that it was founded by Terah’s son because it is not mentioned until the family’s return to Padan Aram. I have more to say about this and these place names but that is for another time.

    In the Gil’ad, in northern Jordan, there is a city named “Haran,” and a city named “Na’ur,” to the southwest of Amman, which could easily be a corruption of Nahor. Arabic has no “U” so Nahor immediately becomes Nahur. The change from het to ayin is a standard change, they being both pronounced on the same organ of speech, namely the epiglottis, the garon. Lavan seems to have established himself at the edge of settlement, three days travel from Ir Nahor. Traveling by horseback or camel, a man can cover about 25 km in a day. Three days’ travel is about 75 km. Opposite the southern end of the Dead Sea, about 75 km south of Na’ur is a town named “Lavan.”

    Traveling with herds and flocks and small children, 10 km per day is good. From Nahor, 100 km to the north puts you in Gil’ad, where Lavan overtook Ya’akov. Ya’akov traveled for ten days. Lavan traveled three days from Lavan to Nahor and another 4 days to overtake Ya’akov. The Haran in Jordan fits the story quite nicely.

    By contrast, the Haran in Turkey, north of the Syrian border, is some 500 km from the Gil’ad. There is no way that Ya’akov, traveling ten days with herds and flocks and small children with stubby little legs, or Lavan, traveling four days from Nahor by horse or camel, could have reached the Gil’ad. I will accept the notion of a miraculous shortening of the way for Ya’akov but I cannot accept that Lavan deserved such a miracle.

    Admittedly, Aram Naharayim does seem obviously to be synonymous with “Mesopotamia” but I maintain it is not. It doesn’t fit the stories in Tanakh. And, interestingly, there is the wreckage of a waterwheel left over from early Zionist history at the confluence of the Jordan River with one of its tributaries from the Gil’ad at a place called “Naharayim.” It is very far from proof, of course, but I do believe that the area east of the Jordan and south of the Yabok, is Padan Aram which is part of Aram Naharayim.

    The reference to Tzipora is enigmatic. The text says she was “Cushite” specifically and the commentators are at pains to explain it because she was not a Cushite but rather a Midianite. There are numerous explanations offered, which means that no one has any idea what it really means. “Dark skinned” relative to the Israelites tells us little because the Text does not tell us what we looked like. We have some hints. King David was “ruddy” and that was not common as is clear from the fact that Israelites did not find that to be attractive. Likewise, the fact that they found the appearance of black Africans to be so striking indicates that we did not look like that in those days. Beyond that, I can see very little to go on and I assume that we are not told what we looked like because it is not important.

    That said, I have read that three of Obama’s four paternal grandparents were Arab. That assumes that Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was really his father, which is frankly in doubt. In my view, Frank Marshall Davis is a more likely candidate. And what of it? He could still be a gilgul of Balak.

    As to the Ethiopians, Jewish or otherwise, everyone in East Africa is mixed. (Everyone everywhere is mixed.) The whole Arabian Peninsula has been rising geologically, probably since Hashem separated the land from the waters and the surface is being cut off systematically from underground water sources. Remains of ports are found hundreds of meters from the sea and they have found evidence of oases that have not existed for centuries. Consequently, there has been continuous migration from the Arabian Peninsula through Yemen into the Horn of Africa for thousands of years. On the other hand, we know that coffee originates in Ethiopia at a place called the Kaffa Plateau. Grinding and brewing coffee was invented by Arabs in the Arabian Peninsula. So clearly, there has been movement the other way also.

    I would like to see your research on Edom. I think it was in the Negev, more or less between Dimona and Sde Boqer. On the eastern side of the Arava was Moav and south of that, Midian. Sometime later, we do find the Edomites east of the Arava, in the area that the Romans named “Idumea,” and I have no explanation for that. Like you say, it needs some systematic study. Someone needs to do it with color-coded push pins and thread for every story mentioning Edom.

    As to fearing Israel, Balak and the Moabites had good reason to fear us. See what I wrote for my daughter’s bat mitzvah.

  9. Mark says:

    very good and plausible! I like the moab/obama (sp. check says I need to capitalize them) connection and that so much of Torah was about deception. How far could this be from Truth? Apropos

    Where do I get the info that Balaam is from the loins of Laban? Very interesting! Aram, highland, looking down on the people, etc. More to search!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thanks, Mark.

    As for the sources, I will give them to you exactly. The English version of the first source is available in the translation of the Talmud by Adin Steinsaltz, or the Schottenstein edition of the Talmud Bavli: Gemara, Sanhedrin 105a. I tried to find the direct quote online, unfortunately I couldn't. It is available in any hard-copy volume, which you can peruse in a Jewish bookstore, for instance. That is the source that states that Bilam was Lavan's son.

    The source that he was a descendant of Lavan, that he was from Aram and that Lavan taught him the occult arts, is the Zohar and the Midrash. I don't have the exact source, unfortunately. Found that in the Stone Edition of the Torah. Also Ibn Ezra and the Ramban state that Bilaam was from Aram, Unfortunately I don't have the exact quote or the location. Maybe a more learned person than me could help you?

    Tanchuma Vayaitze 13 states that Bilan was Lavan's son ( The Midrash Says, Parshat Balak)

    Sefer Zekukin Denurah, quoted by Aitz Yosef, explains that Bilaam was Lavan's gilgul ( Also the Midrash Says, same place).

    The Midrash Says, the book itself, states that Bilaam was Lavan's grandson, based on the above sources.

    I hope this is helpful.
