Question from Facebook: Do you claim that anti-Semitism is a result of the actions of the Jews themselves?
Answer: Certainly, how could this not be so? The Jews awaken pressure from the anti-Semites. Whether there will be anti-Semitism in the world, whether there will be good or evil, war or suffering, in the world depends on the Jews.
In The Book of Zohar, written 2,000 years ago and considered to be the source of the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is written that, unfortunately or fortunately, everything that happens in the world takes place because of the Jews because they are the link that connects all of humanity with the upper force of nature.
So when they are directed and keep this connection correctly, it is good for the world. And if they don’t, it is bad for the world. Everything depends only on the Jews.
The Jews are a group of people who broke away from all the rest of humanity in ancient Babylon, and accepted the method of spiritual development, a connection with the higher power of the world, with what is called the Creator.
In a later stage, 2,000 years ago, this group fell from its spiritual level, and since then, they don’t even know what existed. And still, they felt as if they were a unique group in humanity, the Jews always bothered everyone somehow. This is because they don’t know what their purpose is, what they must carry out with regard to the world. The wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about it.
So we Jews oppose it, but we cannot escape from it. There is a mission we must carry out, we need to lead all of humanity after us, to connect it with the upper force of nature, and then the gracious management will descend into our world. In contrast, today all of us are running around like a dog chasing its tail and are unsuccessful in holding onto success.
Let’s take ourselves by the hand and carry out our mission, becoming a “light unto the nations” (Isaiah 49:6), and this will be good for everyone. Everyone will respect and love us, which is how we will bring happiness and knowledge of the higher conduct, of the Creator, to the world. In the Torah it is written that this is our destiny.
I did not invent this; all the accusations against me are meaningless. I simply explain where this is written. Each one can check for himself. Why shut your eyes and wait for the next blow of fate?
Let’s do this so that it will be good for everyone. It depends only on us.
