Answer: The entire humanity joins the group. Inside the shattered vessel, there is the part called Israel, and the part called the nations of the world. It all exists within the same vessel, in Babel.
The pure part of the desire came out of Babel, and out of this part, during the Egyptian exile and the First and Second Temples, the nation of Israel was established in a shattered form. The second part that came out of Babel wasn’t shattered, but was totally egoistic.
Israel ascended to the spiritual level from which it fell and was shattered, while the nations of the world are not shattered in the process, but already go through the shattering in their roots. We have no choice but to collect and to connect all the shattered vessels which is all of humanity, as it is written: “For they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them.”
The Creator connects to all of humanity as one whole, and Israel is the connection between the parts. Israel actually does not exist. Do you think that you are the main element to which everyone connects, the Creator from above and the general public below? You are simply a pipe that the Light that connects the two goes through.
The Creator actually wants to be dressed in the nations of the world, in the created beings that are external to Israel. This is His goal. They have a real desire to receive, while Israel is the connection between Bina and Malchut, and can only be a connector.
Israel feels the greatness of the goal in their attributes, but this action is in order to serve the Creator and humanity. This action is very important since without it, the Creator and the created beings will not be able to connect to one another for it is Israel that connects them, and only that. The Creator’s desire is directed toward the nations of the world. He looks at them since they have the real raw desire to receive.
The Creator is revealed in the great desires found in all of humanity. Israel is only the connector between them, which is a very respectable role since it is the mediator between the Creator and the nations of the world. Therefore, we should know that if Israel thinks that the nations of the world hate them, then the Creator “hates” them to the extent since they don’t fulfill their obligation.
