Question: You have been speaking in a rigid far-right tone lately, supporting treating the Arabs in Israel with a firm hand. Isn’t this the opposite of what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about how to attain a general connection of love of others? Isn’t everyone supposed to part of the “others”?
Answer: I admit that my remarks sound quite tough. It is because this is how my yearning for the correction of the world guides me. The Jews are those who can correct the world by being a nation in the Land of Israel.
There is no other way of bringing the method of correction into our world in a nice way. The other path is a devastating nuclear war accompanied by environmental disasters. So I am in favor of acting in every possible way in order to have the Jews understand what their mission is and for them to fulfill it for the sake of the whole world. It is clear, of course, that I do not agree with those who want to nullify the existence of the State of Israel.
