War For Hearts And Minds

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Israel repeatedly encounters irrational situations with conflicts that it cannot resolve in Israel’s favor. For example, even though Israel has an absolute superiority in armaments, it cannot succeed because the fighting is in residential areas. The entire world attentively watches us and doesn’t let us act as we would like to.

In fact, we are bound hand and foot; we evoke hatred all around us. In addition, the center of gravity in contemporary wars has shifted to the struggle to win over public opinion. Social approval defines success. Does this situation contain a hint of how it can be resolved?

Answer: Indeed, wars are not about weapons but about influencing human minds. The outcome of any war depends on the state of those minds who decide who is right and who is wrong, not on who is stronger on the battlefield. So those who are more cunning, deceitful, and devious win.

In short, war is not longer the way it was before. Powerful armies, military technologies, and modern weapons yield to media-arsenal. Very often, battles unfold only between different points of view.

This state of affairs brings us close to the idea of “Israeli wars” in its true sense. Previously, we led real “Israeli wars” to represent the category of “Israel” that means being as one man with one heart, i.e., to be one whole. By meeting this condition, we were similar to the Upper Light, the force that pours on us and governs us. This is the way we attained our victories.

Today, after two thousand years of exile, having fallen from the spiritual height of unity, we have to re-connect with each other. Therefore, whether we want it or not, our wars still bear an ideological character as before. In other words, they again are led on the battlefield of views to unite.

In the future, ideology (information that we receive, thoughts and concepts that are imposed on us) will again turn into the weapon. At this time, our world is so riddled in liaisons between all of its parts that if we dissect the globe into pieces, if we isolate countries from each other, none of them would be able to survive on its own. This pertains to Israel more than any other country because Israel totally depends on international trade and industrial connections with America, Europe, and Asia. What would happen to us should we stop our imports and exports? Other countries are not in a much better situation.

This explains why it is impossible to wage war and enjoy complete permissiveness. Countries are restricted by the UN and international bodies. We constantly face a threat of sanctions and limitations, up to boycotts that can take many forms and reach a variety of levels. If you block international trade and financial flows, any country begins to choke and feels as if it is in restraints. Nothing can be done about it. Any country constantly interacts with the entire world.

So, it means that weapons are useless; nobody can take advantage of military arms without taking into consideration the interests of others because they will block the “oxygen” that flows to the country and it will quickly suffocate. Global economics imposes a heavy burden of dependency and makes us rely on good relationships with our partners.

As a consequence of this reliance, the entire world impacts us and directs our steps whether we want it or not. For example, Russia experiences harsh sanctions that were imposed on it. This country loses billions of dollars as a result of these sanctions and that’s why it cannot do whatever it wants.

War is a business where profits and losses are precisely calculated. Today, losses can be so tremendous that there will be no funds to fight a future war.

So, it means that any military conflict requires at least a minimum of the world’s support.

Question: Does it mean that if we don’t get the world’s support, there is no chance for us to win?

Answer: True! The current situation doesn’t give us even the slightest chance of winning. We agree to temporary “solutions” that will last for another year or two.

There is no actual resolution to this situation until we drag the majority of the world to our side. How is it possible? The only way to achieve it is to persuade them that they need us, that we are the “light for the nations,” and that through us they can approach abundance. In other words, they should understand that they will never obtain abundance without us, nor will they be able to buy it with money.

There are no miracles here, only the laws of nature. Kabbalah is a wisdom that lets us make accurate calculations under the condition that we deeply understand how the general system works.
