Question: What is the role of the Israeli nation? Is it to be experts in connection and to teach the nations of the world, or is it to connect first between us and thus set an example for everyone? Which is more important?
Answer: Our unity is within the borders of Israel. This is the most important thing. This is where the examples and the method of connection will reach others. Moreover, it will draw the Light that Reforms for the entire world.
Only we can do that. If we fulfill the connection between us, even without disseminating our message all over the world, it already will bring about the correction of the entire world. Accordingly, our groups disseminate in different countries so that they will be able to ascend, to connect, and allow the Creator to be revealed in them. This, of course, is done together with us.
Therefore, if all the groups in the world gathered in Israel, it would be enough for us to disseminate within these boundaries. After all, when we disseminate, we unite here, and it spreads all over the world.
Baal HaSulam says in “The Introduction to Panim Meirot uMasbirot,” “When the children of Israel are complemented with the complete knowledge, the fountains of intelligence and knowledge shall flow beyond the boundaries of Israel and water all the nations of the world…”
In addition, Rabash says in Letter 18, “The Lord will bestow the abundance unto the nations of the world by the nation of Israel who are more capable than all the nations of the world of getting close to the Lord.”
So, we cannot come to the nations of the world with any complaints, no matter how they treat us. That is something else. Don’t come to anyone with your complaints. It is you who give birth to Hitler and all our other enemies by your actions.
We are the ones who tilt the scales to one side or another, and it is a very serious matter. Therefore, our work is only in connecting. If the Jews were connected and united, there would have been no persecutions, and no one would have expelled them from Spain or from other countries, and their life could have been totally different even in exile.
Every movement a person makes in this world is like a movement of an electric charge in a force field, or of an iron rod in a magnetic field. The Light operates me, and, accordingly, I manage everything in my life.
All we need is connection and from this connection to turn to the Creator. It also works in politics, in the economy, in every area. Thanks to this we will bring order to the entire world. Then, we will begin to understand the reasons for anti-Semitism and the increasing general pressure that we feel.
The point is that it is not the PLO or Hamas, or Teheran. Everything depends on us. When we disrespect connection, we bring about such afflictions.
These forces are not a punishment but help so that we will improve our ways, unite, connect, and operate correctly. Therefore, we must justify them and use them as fast as we can, according to our goal.
When we begin to connect here, within the boundaries of Israel, we will feel how all the bad things melt away and fade like clouds that disappear from the sky.
