Anti-Semitism: Who Is To Blame And What Can Be Done?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe. How should we relate to it?

Answer: As we all know, all things are rooted in two opposites. On one hand, I don’t have to love the one who hates me, and on the other hand, I have to work on correction. On one hand, I have to understand that I am hated to the same extent that I hate in the eyes of the Creator, because the whole world is a replica managed by Him. On the other hand, I have to do everything in my power in order to correct myself and my relationship with the Creator, for this I correct my relationship with the world.

The Jews don’t have to explain to the Europeans how good they are. They are so eager to prove to the world that they don’t want to harm anyone and that they help everyone, but who cares? No one. In corporeality the Jews cannot determine anything. No matter how nice they are, the world will understand more clearly that they are not fulfilling their role. Subconsciously the nations of the world want only one thing from the Jews: “Give us the connection to the Creator.” It is because the Jews are the transition phase, we have to do it; it is our duty, our only debt to the world. So why do the Jews take other tasks upon themselves? No one needs culture, education, science, or success in any other field from the Jews.

Humanity doesn’t value the enormous contribution that the Jewish people are so proud of. It is as if they say to the Jewish people: “We don’t want to acknowledge that, since this is not what we expect of you. According to the plan of creation you have to bring us the Light that Reforms. Without it, everything else is worthless…” Eventually, the general system is becoming increasingly more anti-Semitic.

Anti- Semitism is a negative attitude to what Jews are needlessly dealing with in this world. The hatred towards Jews will only grow to catastrophic proportions. It is because Jews are not dealing with what they should. Israel (ISRA-EL) is assigned to be “a Light unto the nations,” the link, the “transition” between the Creator (Boreh) and the nations, the “kingdom of priests” that is supposed to teach the world. Baal HaSulam speaks about it in his articles “Matan Torah (The Giving of the Torah)” and “The Arvut (Mutual Guarantee).” Only the nation of Israel can pave the road to the Light for the world, but instead it creates a “jam” and blocks the passage, creating a roadblock. So how is it possible not to hate it as a result? It is obvious that the nations of the world treat it negatively (-).

Anti-Semitism: Who Is To Blame And What Can Be Done?

Because Israel means straight to the Creator (Yashar-El), it is these people who can communicate with the Creator. The Israeli nation has received this ability and then it was shattered and dispersed among the other nations. The preparation for that was from Above and now all those who belong to the level of “Israel” have to start correcting themselves in order to bring the Light to the nations of the world (Nations).

Anti-Semitism depends only on that, but Jews usually avoid their responsibility. Today, America is already losing its popularity and more people are going to Australia where it is quieter. Instead of being in the center of the world and bringing the world correction, which no one else can do, they are running to the edges of the world in order to hide there…

On the whole, it is impossible to see the outcome of the current events in the short run. We have to be above all that, not wanting to harm anyone. The idea is that if I cannot bring the world to the end of correction right now, then all the evil events that happen in the world, no matter who feels them, are because of me. It is my fault. So I have to hurry and bring them the method of correction in every possible way: by books, on the Internet, in courses, and also in the internal system based on the connection among us. If something bad happens somewhere in the world, it is only because I don’t bring the world to correction. After all, only I can do that.

People blame the Jews since it is human nature; a person feels that way although he doesn’t really know why. It is “natural knowledge.” Although I explain this to you and to the whole world, you still don’t understand why we are to blame for everything that happens. Do you want to stop the bloodshed? Go ahead, do something, bring more Light that Reforms to people, pray for them. It is you who should bring them correction, and in that sense the world belongs to you.

Everything depends on how quickly we hasten the correction. I turn to all our friends all over the world and to our TV viewers; let’s feel a bit more responsible.
