An Opportunity for Redemption
Judaism [a science about connection with the Creator, from the word Yichud – “union”] must present something new [new relationships, revelation of the new purpose in life and the Upper World] to the nations. That is what they expect [subconsciously] from the return of Israel to the land! [Hence, after seeing that it is not happening, they hate us even more than before and claim that our state is unnecessary.]
It is not in other teachings, for in that we never innovated; we were always their disciples [we were first, but developed that which they had to develop]. Rather, it is the wisdom of religion, justice and peace [that they are expecting of us]. In this, most nations are our disciples, and this wisdom is attributed to us alone [since the program of correction of man’s nature has been passed to us].
