Question: You are trying to prove that if we begin to work on improving the relations within the Israeli nation, the Arab terrorists, who grew up in Gaza and who have been preached to since birth that to kill a Jew is the most honorable action and that thanks to that you reach Eden, will suddenly calm down. This claim seems naïve. What is the connection between our inner relationship and the conduct of the terrorist?
Answer: I understand that your doubts are real. But tell me please, why does everyone hate the Jews and why do people say that we are the reason for the troubles in the world? Why is there such strong anti-Semitism in South Korea? If it were a Christian country, we could somehow understand it, but have the Jews ever insulted Buddha? Or have we conquered any Korean territories?
Why is anti-Semitism growing everywhere? Why does it exist? There is a rational, sensible explanation but we simply don’t see the connection. It is just as if prehistoric man would see me press a button on the wall and then see the room filled with light. He would think that I am an angel or a magician. It is the same here, there is a connection. Don’t be as primitive as prehistoric man and try to see the connection between the different phenomena in the world.
This is clear even to people who don’t know the wisdom of Kabbalah, the inner Torah, the true wisdom, but simply from their life experience, from examining and analyzing historical facts. Anti-Semitism is an indication that the Jewish people are special and that they influence the whole world. Anti-Semites accuse us for the evil in the world.
Thus they actually claim: “We depend on you! Stop harming us! We cannot correct the situation in any way, you are stronger than us!” In other words, they are asking us to do them good, and the good state is unity.
You should learn this from nature. Nature is global and balanced and only mankind harms everyone: It intervenes and destroys nature and brings it to a state of imbalance. It is because man doesn’t use his ego naturally in order to live and to receive from nature what he needs to survive, but mercilessly robs nature and destroys it.
Question: So it turns out that our ego is killing us. Is this the diagnosis?
Answer: The ego separates people and we have to learn to connect above the ego. It says, “love will cover all the sins.” We should learn to do it. The Israeli nation knows how to do it and should start this correction. The moment it starts the correction it will immediately spread all over the world.
The nations of the world will feel that the correction comes from Israel and will begin to regard us with love, to help and support us. Our Arab neighbors who are ready to destroy us now will help us live good life.
We actually summon the waves of hate all over the world by refusing to connect and to ascend above the ego that separates us. But if we do so, the waves of hate will turn into the waves of love.
If we look at what is happening from this perspective we will feel shame for not fulfilling our mission, our role. On the whole, we should have begun to fulfill it in the days of the ARI in the 16th century.
But since the beginning of the 20th century we simply have to start the correction, from the moment we were given the opportunity to return to the Land of Israel. Thus we have received the conditions to fulfill our mission regarding the nations of the world. We exist only for the sake of the world.
The Jewish people are the same group that Abraham had gathered in ancient Babel and took out of Babel in order to unite it and with its help correct all of Babel. The wisdom of Kabbalah tells about all that.
