Upon Whom Does The Whole World Depend?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In the Arab nations there were a number of revolutions that occurred with the help of social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Even now, the same thing is happening with us. In other words, our enemies are using the same achievements of the modern world without declaring war on us. Do we need to conduct a cultural war such as this with them?

Answer: You can do anything you want. But nothing will help! Only if there is really a life and death threat, is it necessary to defend yourself without considering anything else. But simultaneously, it is up to you to move the people towards internal unity.

Then everyone will gradually begin to change their opinion about you, because through connection and unity, you will be connected with the whole world. Then you will channel completely new forces of good, mutual connection, and unity to the whole world, which the world needs so much. And without the power of connection and unity, it will move toward war.

Everyone understands and knows this, but they cannot do anything because other than the people of Israel, nobody has freedom of choice. So the whole world condemns the Jews. The peoples of the world subconsciously feel that they depend on us. And it is not just that they blame us for all the troubles, it is an internal feeling of dependence. For example, if I feel that I depend on a particular person, I am afraid of him, hate him, he doesn’t leave my mind, and I don’t know what to do with this connection. This is precisely what the nations of the world feel about us. This is a fact.

Question: So this means that they are afraid of us?

Answer:  They are frightened, meaning they feel that they cannot annihilate us. If they could, they would wipe us off the face of the Earth. They have tried, but it didn’t work. But this is not the idea; rather, it is a feeling of powerlessness before Israel that everyone feels subconsciously. I have travelled throughout the world, given interviews and lectures at dozens of universities, major newspapers, in the mass media, and I have conversed with scientists, politicians, and sociologists. This is what people feel.

Question: Does this mean that the people of Israel and the nation itself cannot be destroyed?

Answer: The people no, the nation yes. We could quietly be expelled from here. In the meantime, a bilateral world still supposedly exists, but we have no need of anyone. If there were no higher management through which we need to unite on this land, we  already wouldn’t be here.

Nevertheless, from day to day I see how the people of Israel are becoming more and more consolidated internally, more sensitive, and understand that nothing will save them except for the connection and unity between us. They are becoming more prepared to understand, perceive, and hear this idea, and our organization is becoming increasingly capable of explaining this and giving an example.

How Can We Change The Situation In Israel Not To Be A Burden On The World

Dr. Michael LaitmanComment: If we don’t provide humanity with the key to happiness, no one will help us. Even America which has always helped us will not protect us now

Answer: If it isn’t in the American interest to stand against Russia, Europe or any other country. We will become useless and meaningless for them and they will not take us into account, even for a second.

The American Jews will not say a word in our favor either. The Americans understand perfectly that this place on the planet is important only from a political point of view, as opposition to other structures in the world.  

If this opposition doesn’t exist, Israel will disappear, and not take its rightful place in the world becoming its ideological center, which the world needs so desperately. Today the world doesn’t need us; we are merely a tool of resistance between the different systems in the world. American military representatives in Israel candidly say that this is the only reason they need us, while in every other sense, we are simply a burden on them.

Mistaken Concern At The European Jewish Congress

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (russian-bazaar):  “The president of the European Jewish Congress (EJC) Moshe Kantor expressed concern about the significant increase of anti-Semitism on the continent at the first annual colloquium on the issue of respect for fundamental rights in the EU, where he spoke on behalf of the European Jews.

“‘”The refugee problem has become a serious test for Europe. But Europe does not go a day without an even more serious test – said Kantor. – Earlier this year, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after bloody anti-Semitic violence in the supermarket “Hyper Kasher” in Paris that “if 100,000 Jews were to leave France, France will no longer be France. This would mean the collapse of the French Republic.

“‘I would go even further and say that if hundreds of thousands of Jews leave the European Union, as is becoming increasingly likely, it would mean the collapse of the European Union. Over the past few years, tens of thousands of Jews left Europe in search of a safe haven, but today one third of the nearly 2.5 million Jews in Europe thinks about emigration. …'”

My Comment: Dr. Kantor should not worry about the future of Europe. But if the European Jewish Congress realized the true reasons for the growing global anti-Semitism, it could change the Jewish identity and thus change the whole world!

Why Is The Blame On Us?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: It isn’t enough that the whole world blames us Israelis for everything that is happening in Israel,  and even the wisdom of Kabbalah says that the Jews are to blame for everything. I would like to understand what exactly are we to blame for? You say that we are divided, but I am familiar with many good people who are friendly and help each other.

Answer: You are absolutely right, from your external point of view of the world. But if we go deeper into the system that connects all of humanity and manages all of nature, then it will be clear that the Jews are that very part through which the general force of nature influences and acts upon everything else. So if the Jews don’t behave correctly, all the rest suffer. Imagine yourself a small nation, a small group, that don’t unite well or correctly among themselves. So all the influences that pass through them to humanity go out negatively and lead to separation, opposition, and mutual hostility.

The wisdom of Kabbalah explains these laws, opens our eyes, and allows us to penetrate into the system and see the cause. From the point of view of your ordinary logic, you are right. But if we look further inside, we find justification for everything that is said in the Kabbalistic sources.

I relate to this like a scientist. My first profession was in biocybernetics, the second was in general philosophy and the wisdom of Kabbalah. in addition, I have a doctoral degree in ontology, the science of the general structure of the universe. When you study all these sciences, you begin to see how everything is organized such that all of the power of bestowal for the entire world moves through a group called the people of Israel.

This group determines everything: as much as it is connected, the whole world is also connected. If the Jews are divided and even hate each other, then the whole world will also be like this. The world justly blames Jews, because they instinctively feel that everything depends on us. Anti-Semitism and the negative attitude of the peoples of the world towards Israel indicate that they feel themselves dependent on the people of Israel. I understand that it is insulting to you to hear that they are blaming you for everything; I also used to think like you. But come, let’s not be short-sighted! The study of nature obligates us to agree with everything that is written in the Kabbalistic sources, the inner part of the Torah.

Question: Do you mean that we need to begin living in communes? Are you talking about unity like this?

Answer: No, we are not talking about creating communes. We only need to study the wisdom of Kabbalah and to begin to look at the world with different eyes, to see the internal system that manages all of humanity. Then your view changes and you will understand how much everything depends on you.

From Crisis To Birth

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (To The Death Media):: It must be finally getting crunch time for the primary central banks around the world because on Oct. 10, the G30 group of global money printers admitted in a detailed report that the tens of trillions of dollars, euros, yen, and other currencies they have infused into the system has done absolutely nothing for local economies, and instead has accomplished what alternative economists stated would happen from the very beginning…

“Create asset bubbles, un-payable debt, and assure that there would be no sustainable growth. …

“Central banks have never had the primary purpose of protecting an economy , or judiciously regulating a nation’s money supply.  Instead their purpose, going back to their creations over the past 400 years, has been to protect private banks and through the tool of inflation, steal the wealth of a given country and then move on to new fields that are untouched by their locust instincts.  And with the U.S., Europe, Japan, and others standing on the precipice of near complete insolvency, the sociopaths within the global central banks are trying their best to deflect their failures onto someone else, and act like the results the world is experiencing was not their fault.”

My Comment: It is wonderful to discover that the egoistic world is collapsing and an altruistic world is being born. Even more wonderful is the help that is making its birth easier through the unity of those who want to be born together within a single new body, desire.

The World Crisis

 Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom the News (radonezh.ru ): “The world is in a difficult situation, problems are everywhere and the situation is becoming more severe. Whoever is managing the Earth is playing cunning tricks on us to continue to hold us in bondage. It is too late to discuss the problem of developing stability while conducting a war. The world requires a new consensus.

“We are living in a fragile world that is developing rapidly, with stability decreasing, with this becoming the new norm of our lives. Globalization has stopped providing its dividends. The United States is joining with 40 nations and negotiating trans-Atlantic free trade with the European Union. Russia is making its own Eastern-European union. China is also interested in it, and these blocs will compete. There is nothing good for the individual. The world is on the verge of the destruction of the basic economic paradigm of development. In the history of Europe there have been two cases like these in the past 2,000 years. These are the destruction between the 9th and 11th centuries, when the ancient economic model was replaced by a feudal model, and between the 16th and 17th centuries, when the feudal model was replaced by the capitalist model. Today the mechanism of capitalistic development is exiting. But as happens every time, this will continue for a few centuries and bring severe disasters. The peak of the crisis will be in the middle of 2016, with the possibility of the collapse of the financial system.”

My Comment: The collapse of the existing society with all its egoistic connections and forms must happen, and the sooner it happens, the better it will be for all of us. Because in that case, the collapse will be softer. The existing systems are based on the egoistic nature of humanity, and it must be understood that it has completely broken down.

We ourselves must want to change our nature, because that is precisely the locus of each against all, compelling everyone to build his own happiness on someone else’s misfortunes, causing a collision between nations and entire continents. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us how to move to the new world rapidly and happily, for the good of everyone.

The Situation In Israel: The End Of The Infitada

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When will the Intifada stop?

Answer: It cannot stop by itself without our involvement; it is up to us to bring the positive force, the force of unity, among the people of Israel, and in this way, we will disseminate this good force throughout the world, since we influence everything.

If we don’t do this and assume that the situation will calm down, then after some time, a much worse negative force will be revealed to us. Clearly, we would like the Intifada to stop immediately. But we must understand that the situation will become more severe if we don’t help reveal the positive force in our world.

Question: What can the Israeli society do today to solve this problem at its root?

Answer: First of all, the Israeli society must know what its good future depends on. It depends only on us, not on any other people or any negotiations between politicians. We don’t depend on anyone, only on ourselves. It is apparently a very good thing that the ball is in our hands and we determine everything. But specifically because the ball is in our hands, the eyes of the whole world are turned towards us and other peoples are demanding us to bring good to the world, instead of bad. They talk about this very seriously, claiming that Israel determines the entire state of the world, and if it is bad, Israel is to blame.

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the people of Israel are found at the center of creation, and we possess a method that makes it possible to correctly organize connections in all of humanity, all of nature, and in an ideal way, calm down all levels of nature: the still, vegetative, animate and human. We have this knowledge and the ability to realize it. You don’t want there to be terrorist acts? Invest effort and do what depends on you! Don’t just sit at home in front of the television and count how many acts of terrorism there were today. If it depends upon each one of us, let’s begin to approach each other and ask, “How is this possible?  If we don’t do something, then this will continue.”

You ask, “Will the Intifada stop?” It won’t stop as long as the right connection between us hasn’t been found, especially among the people of Israel. And then everyone will understand how they need to organize themselves—all over the world, with everything that is happening in Europe, America, and in other nations. They will suddenly begin to understand how to establish relationships with each other.

“Capitalism Is Devouring Its Own Tail”

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (inosmi.ru): “The world may soon enter an era in which it will be possible to be rich only because of one’s birth. Modern capitalism is increasingly resembling feudalism. …

“According to the calculations of the British charity Oxfam, in the next year 1% of the richest people on earth are to amass more money than the remaining 99%. …

” If the average growth of world production is 1-1.5%, while income from capital investment comes to 4-5%. Speculating on the market, you can earn much more than producing something useful for the economy. The greatest chance of enrichment are for those who have sufficient capital and can afford to indulge in financial speculation. So they accumulate more and more money and are more and more alienated in property terms from the rest of society and its problems. …

“‘Therefore, the circumstances of birth are more important than talent and effort,’ – wrote American economist and Nobel laureate, Paul Krugman.

“The new aristocracy – is not so much the aristocracy of industry, as it is a circle of people holding money. Many economists have long pointed to financial speculation as a source of growing stratification. …

“Much of this paper wealth can evaporate as a result of the financial turmoil, just as in a few weeks in June and July 2015 2.8 trillion (the amount is close to the nominal GDP of France) evaporated with the Chinese exchanges. The problem is that the large financial speculators did not become poor from the collapse. It is the small punters who, losing their life savings in the markets, can not count on any support. Banks in these situations also can count on assistance from the state. …

“Increased stratification also leads to a decrease in social mobility, limited access to education. In the long term, the less ‘equal’ economy also suffers from the greater likelihood of senior positions being taken by not really talented people, but by those who compensate for the lack of talent by birth in a rich family or acquaintances in high places. …

“Growth of the disparity in income in the long term may also lead to dire political consequences. On the one hand, it leads to oligarchic mode, on the other hand, increases sympathy for the radical movements that seek to eliminate the existing socio-political order. …

“It is possible to observe a harbinger of countries lying in the periphery of the eurozone. There is growing a generation that has never had a chance at a normal job. “The level of financial stratification in Europe have threatened social equilibrium. When the unemployment rate, which among youth in Greece and Spain, more than 50% of the younger generation has no prospects,” – indicates Janusz Shevchak. …

“‘Piketty writes in his book that if the level of return on capital will consistently exceed the level of economic growth (which he predicts in his works), this can lead to the destruction of the foundations on which to build democratic capitalism, that is, the idea that work allows one to get rich, and its material effect depends on individual skills and effort. As a result, a phenomenon exacerbated delegitimization of capital and that this is followed, activated movement “angry” and start coming to power of populist parties (both left and right), cleverly finding access to public discontent, “- recalls Sobochinsky. …

“…in Europe support formed for radical formation during the Great Depression of the 30’s: the Communist Party, the German Nazi Party, fascist, radical socialist and national-radical movements. History shows that the radicalization of society can be accelerated if an economic crisis imposed an identity crisis of the nation and the immigration crisis. …

“‘The response to the crisis 30s was the introduction of very high taxes in the framework of the policy New Deal, so that in the post-war period managed to establish relative balance between labor and capital, as a result, income inequality decreased significantly.'”


My Comment: Capitalists are not brave enough to raise their own taxes. Today there is no longer a clear and accurate correlation between hard work and the outcome of labor. Countries are not locked within their borders and business has become global.

Therefore, people don’t feel that they depend on capital within their country and international corporations don’t feel that they depend on it. In order to feel it, they have to feel the environment, the attitude towards others. The world has come to an economic dead end and the only way out is through new social relationships.

Terrorism In Israel Is Leading Us To Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (svoboda.org): “To carry out attacks in Israel, 13-year-old children are organized through social media networks. The main reason – the Palestinians are desperate due to not being the central focus of the media in the Arab nations.

“All of the Arab nations are in conflicts, with many of them beginning to look at Israel as an ally in their struggle with Iran, paying less and less attention to the Palestinian question that they became fed up with long ago.

“The Palestinian leadership wants to attract attention to itself somehow, since the Palestinian security forces aren’t participating in the campaign of violence against Israel and are cooperating with Israel. And that is how the game continues.

“The position of the United States matches their position. The Secretary of State blames Israel for the Palestinian oppression because Israel is building settlements in the West Bank and is trying to change the status quo on the Temple mount.

“Peace is imperative, but the maximum concessions that Israel is ready to make are far from the minimal demands of the Palestinians. Netanyahu is concerned about the presence of Hezbollah and more, the Iranian army within our borders. This is because Iranian military forces have already entered Syria to fight alongside Assad. Netanyahu has a better relationship with Putin than with Obama, even though there is no doubt that America is still our main ally.”

My Comment: We can rely only upon ourselves. We have no allies. But we have the most powerful weapon in the world, which is our unity, and if we attain it, we are invincible and can lead the whole world to that same state in which the Creator will be revealed.

He Who Is Merciful To The Wicked

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (russian-bazaar): “Europe has in fact accepted its fate and doesn’t try to stop the Islamic wave that threatens to drown it. The borders between the European states are like torn down fences. Closing the borders would be considered an act of racism and asking the Muslims to become part of their new homeland will lead to growing xenophobia towards them. When we speak about numbers, probably many thousands are terrorists according to foreign media sources.

“This is the start of the fulfillment of the prophecy of Egyptian cleric Salem Abu El-Puticha: ‘the Islamic nation will return to power despite the West’s arrogance. The West will undoubtedly be destroyed. Allah destroyed the Byzantine and Persian empires and he will also destroy the West through the Muslims. These countries will convert to Islam, Islam will reach them.’

“The Muslims see themselves as those who have the absolute knowledge that enables them to rule the ‘heretics.’ Therefore everything the Arabs conquered in the 7th and 8th centuries belongs to Islam, including Spain, Sicily, the land of Israel and more. This isn’t only the view of the fundamentalists, but also of the level-headed Muslims. The main message of Islam is ‘the Muslims need to believe that Islam will eventually win and will replace the constitution of Sharia.’

“One of the problems of the modern world is the hatred that radical Islam feels towards the West. There is no sustainable solution to this problem. The world prefers to engage more in Israel, thinking that all of the modern world’s problems stem from Israel. Rabi Yohushua Ben Levi said: ‘He who is merciful to the wicked will eventually become wicked to the merciful.'”

My Comment: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, Islam will flood the whole world except for Israel, and when it swallows the world, it will turn everyone against Israel, but this will be its end. It is impossible to blame Europe of turning a blind eye to the current Islamic wave that is flooding it. Everything evolves according to the plan that is described in the wisdom of Kabbalah. Only the unity of the nation of Israel into one whole will help the world attain its greatest, most sublime future without any bloodshed.
