To Be A Model For The Nations

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: During the Holocaust, not only the ideologists but also the entire nation hated the Jews….

Answer: Let’s put it this way: The entire nation was willing to accept the ideas of genocide without feeling any shame and guilt. It is a war, an ideological war, in which victory can be achieved only one way: by exterminating the nation which has an opposite idea.

Nowadays, tens of peoples can take the same course which the Germans took before. And everyone will instantly feel that, first and foremost, it is the Jews who are their rival and nemesis. Besides, it doesn’t matter what neighboring country a nation will be fighting with: “We have a war party going on here, but it’s all the Jews’ fault.”

Any nation that chooses the path of fascism will inevitably attack Israel with ideology. This is programmed in nature; there is nothing we can do about it.

Therefore, our only responsibility is to expedite correction. We must get corrected and unify, become a model and “a light unto the nations.” And then they’ll understand that it is the right, perfect example which doesn’t just provide a solution on the level of this world, but also elevates a person to the spiritual degree, the eternal life.

Having demonstrated such a model, we will be able to prevent the Third and the Fourth World Wars and all the misfortunes that might follow. There is no other solution. And hence, everyone who understands what danger is threatening the entire Jewish nation and all of humanity must participate in correction with all their strength and heart.
