Answer: First of all, of course, it is necessary to prevent our enemies from acting like this in the future, and in this sense, a cease-fire won’t help. An action is required here that will make it possible for us to live normally.
On the other hand, in my opinion, a cease-fire can bring benefit if the people of Israel understand that it is up to them to carry out a correction and it has no other choice. There is no other way of reaching a quiet life, there won’t be a calm life as long as the people don’t correct themselves as required, meaning, until they become “like one person with one heart,” as the people of Israel must be according to the sources.
And so “the territory upon which we dwell” will become the true land of Israel. The people must relate to their place exactly as the land of Israel, that is, yearning straight to the Creator – Yashar-El. This must be the worldview of the people, and this is not a religious, but a spiritual view.
And then, of course, nobody in the world will have a reason to say that this land doesn’t belong to us. On the contrary, everyone will want us to live here; everyone will feel that the presence of the people of Israel in Zion will make it possible to provide the source of life, spiritual fulfillment for the whole world. And this is what all nations are missing. So there will be peace (Shalom) and also wholeness (Shlemut) throughout the world, and it will extend from here.
If the people of Israel use the ceasefire to return to their normal life, then it won’t help anything and in another few months we will see that the situation will only become more severe. In fact, our enemies are right in not agreeing to a ceasefire. Indeed, based on our present approach, the ceasefire won’t be beneficial. It is clear that if we don’t carry out a spiritual correction, everything will be much worse.
So ultimately what is there to do? The group called Bnei Baruch, which understands that a correction is ultimately required here, and it is shown to us that there is no alternative, must turn to the whole world now, and in particular the people of Israel, and openly explain what is happening and what must be done.
Otherwise we will have no possibility of remaining here. In the meantime, the missiles of the enemy are like plastic pipes with explosive material, but next time it could be much worse. They will begin to throw advanced bombs at us and even atomic, chemical, and biological bombs. And this will be not only from one direction but from all four directions. Anything is possible.
And so if we understand that there is alternative but only spiritual correction, then let’s implement it. This doesn’t mean that we must give up on armaments, on the “Iron Dome.” No. But it must be understood that true correction is carried out on a higher level.
First of all, it is up to us to understand that we are the active heart. It is up to us to go out to the people and explain to them what is happening, even compulsively. Now is the “time for action” (Psalm 119:126). Everything is happening for us so that we will explain to the people of Israel about their mission with all of our strength and by all means.
The people must know this. The idea is not so that they will know us and recognize that we are right, but so that they will know that their fate depends upon it. This is what Baal HaSulam told us: If we carry out this mission, we will remain in our land, and if not, we will be forced to leave it. And so, the time has arrived for aggressive dissemination.
