On The Threshold Of A Third Intifada – Part 12 “Why Doesn’t Anything Help Stop The Terrorism?“

Laitman_049_01Question: Why don’t any measures from leadership to stop the terrorism [in Israel] help, but only worsen the condition?

Answer: Because it does not depend on leadership. Even if all the leaders of Islam and the leaders of all the major powers suddenly wanted to do something good for the people of Israel, and even if our Arab neighbors wanted to live in peace with us, it would not resolve the conflict.

After all, it doesn’t depend on people but on the failure to implement the law of nature. The people of Israel must bring all parts of nature to unity, so that through them they will disseminate this to all of the nations.

Question: Why does a paradox like this exist, that the more that acts of terrorism are directed against Jews in Israel, the more the media condemn Israel?

Answer: Because both are derived from the same source: the people of Israel haven’t attained unity to the degree that it was obliged to date. We already should have united the whole world into a single system.

And as long as we don’t, we get a negative reaction from our internal and external forces. One only has to look at what hostility appears in Israel among the Jews themselves, and likewise among the Jews and Arabs, and in the attitude of all the nations against Israel.

Question: How is it possible to confirm that “love of others” will help us solve all problems?

Answer: Love of others is the general law that unites all parts of nature. Just like the laws of physics, it cannot be changed. All of us came out of the Big Bang, and later everything began to extend from this single point, from a single spark of energy that fills the entire universe.

It follows that all of us are connected with each other, for we are connected to that tiny spark of energy that empowered the existence of the entire universe, all the stars and systems around the still, vegetative, animate, and speaking on the surface of our tiny planet in the vast space.

All of this is one single system. Let’s open our eyes a bit and we will understand that we exist within a vast system of nature and can influence it in a positive direction.

On A Spiritual Salary

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When you are sick, you continue to give lessons for three hours. How do you do it? When I have a fever, I stay home and don’t go to the lesson.

Answer: And do you go to work?

Comment: When I have a high fever, I can’t move.

Answer: And in the case that you would be fired from work and your family would be left without any means of subsistence? You see this is the question: how could you stay home?

I am asking the same question. Because I work and receive a salary, but it is spiritual. I am being paid with the opportunity to bestow and so I get up for the lesson. After all, man simply calculates what is more important to him and acts accordingly.

Abu Mazen, The Roots Of Hatred

laitman_272In the News ( “At first glance, the thesis that Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) defended in 1982 at the Moscow Institute of Oriental Studies, examines the relationship between the Zionists and the Nazis after the signing of the Agreement Haavara in 1933 between the Zionist movement and the Nazi regime. But a closer examination of this work shows that it contains a typical poisonous Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda.

“In his book The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between the Nazis the Leadership of the Zionist Movement and Zionism published in 1984, based on the thesis (which any Palestinian can read online Abbas) he writes that the leaders of the Zionist movement, including David Ben-Gurion, Moshe Sharett, were ‘key partners’ and responsible for the Holocaust and the crimes committed during the Second World War. According to him, they are guilty of the murder of Jews, since they supported anti-Semitism and the persecution of the Jewish people in the hope of increasing the flow of immigrants. …

“Abu Mazen goes even further and states in his book that the Holocaust was Zionist conspiracy against the Jewish people and that its entire goal was to establish a national home in Palestine. And all those who aspired to expose that plot, especially after the establishment of the State of Israel, were killed by Israeli entities. And here Abu Mazen pointed to ‘poor’ Adolf Eichmann, who tried to expose the conspiracy between the Jews and the Nazis, and for this reason, according to Abu Mazen, the Israeli ‘Mossad’ kidnapped him from Argentina and had him killed. …

“Today, Abu Mazen’s book is on the table of the Israeli Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. The legislators and members of the committee would do well to initiate an urgent discussion of the Palestinian incitement, which is relevant today as ever. The incitement and blood libel contained in Abu Mazen’s book are stronger in its destructive impact than any terrorist attack. …

“Abbas seeks to falsify history, but its main task – to cover up the real accomplices of the Nazis, for example, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini and his entourage, who lived in Germany from 1941 to 1945. This Mufti incited violence against Jews in Europe and the Arab countries, and is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people during the Holocaust.”

My Comment: It is unwise to wait for changes in the behavior of people; they are all managed. The only ones who have freedom of choice are the Jews who are prepared to unite with each other (through mutual guarantee – Arvut), and cause the appearance of the positive power (the Creator) in our world, and with this lead the world to goodness and happiness.

After all, due to the fall from mutual love to unfounded hatred, the Temple was destroyed 2,000 years ago. As long as we don’t restore that same love, we cannot be considered a people and a nation. Instead of anti-Semites, let’s engage ourselves, and then they will disappear!

Kabbalah – The Method For The Elevation Of Man

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Is there a formula in the wisdom of Kabbalah for successful relationships?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah helps us to reach good relations between us, because it enables man to elevate above his egoism. And although we are all egoistic and we see that we cannot get rid of the ego, Kabbalah enables a person to rise above it and manage it properly.

Therefore, with the help of the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is possible to attain correct mutual relations in the family, with children, in a collective, in a nation, in society, between countries, and in the world. This is a great system of corrections, which we need to absorb and adapt to.

Once it is at least partially realized between us, the world will start to look completely different. Even starting the realization of the method of elevation above the ego will rid the world of suffering, and then humanity will rise to the next degree.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is not training, coaching, or a psychology of correct relations between us, it is a method of man’s elevation above his beastly egoistic nature in order to achieve the next degree of his development, the degree in which we are above the limits of life or death, above everything that gives us negative feelings in life.

Question: What will happen with those that don’t feel the need to change?

Answer: It’s not important. People come to the wisdom of Kabbalah with different intentions. Some want to gain something in this life; others want to know how they can be more successful and happy. There are many people that think that with the help of Kabbalah they can broaden their understanding of their world, and in this manner succeed in science, art, and culture. Some think they can expand their view of the world, their mind and perception, and that it will help them to write better, to invent, and compose. And there are people that are truly asking the question: “What am I living for? I want to decipher the meaning of life, the secret of the existence of creation. Stars, endless universe, galaxies—what are all of these for, and me inside it? It couldn’t be that all of it exists for nothing.”

Once this question was hanging in the air. I remember that they taught us that the universe itself is endless; today when they talk about new revelations, scientists understand that the universe is not endless. So comes the simple question: “If it started at some point, then what will be after it is over? Does the universe have boundaries, then what exists beyond the boundaries?” Humanity does not have answers to these questions. But if those questions are formed in us, then it is possible to find answers for them.

“Calls For Anti-Jewish Terror”

Laitman_182_02In the News ( “Sweden is advancing in its anti-Semitism and hatred towards Israel. The Swedish government was the first to acknowledge the Palestinian state, which doesn’t even exist, but has not yet issued any condemnation of the Palestinian wave of terrorism that swept Israel in the last three weeks. …

“The Swedish media took an openly biased anti-Israeli stand and do not mention the word ‘terrorist’ when they relate to the Arab attackers. Almost no one dares to speak to the press in support of Israel. A report of a terrorist attack on October 3rd in the Old City, where two Jews were killed, the biggest Swedish news agency TT used the headline: ‘Palestinian Shot and Killed in Jerusalem,’ referring to the fact that the terrorist was neutralized.

“Despite the Israeli ambassador’s note of protest, the agency hasn’t honored him with any reply yet. About the attack in which the Henkin couple was murdered in front of their four small children,the Swedish media chose to keep completely silent. And in a radio interview, the host asked the Israeli ambassador whether it isn’t the Jews who are actually responsible for the growing anti-Semitism. …

“The Swedish airline SAS has announced the cancellation of flights to Israel because they are ‘unprofitable’.

“The Church of Sweden also takes a frankly anti-Israel stance.”

My Comment: We see how the people of the world have consistently demonstrated their understanding of upon whom the peace in the world depends. Shouldn’t we find out the reason for their accusations?

After all, our Torah tells us the same thing: we and we alone are the ones who are the cause for the suffering or happiness in the world, according to our closeness to the Creator. We should understand and change this trend in the time we have left, which is running out, to prevent a reoccurrence of the Holocaust!
