In the News (Jewish Virtual Library): “To date, 27 states have adopted laws that are designed to discourage boycotts against Israel. Separately, the U.S. Congress is considering making anti-boycott legislation as well in reaction to the BDS movement [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions – anti-Israel].
Question: Pro-Israel lobbies press for this legislation. Do you think this approach makes sense?
Answer: No. Nothing can be done by force or prohibitions. On the contrary, it will further aggravate and cause anger, etc.
Egoism is growing in us every day, at every second. If we don’t fix it, if we don’t shape it properly, if we don’t reformat it correctly, then it will only continue getting worse.
This developing egoism is an indicator that we—the Jews, the people of Israel—are not implementing our correction.
Remark: It is very hard to accept that we are at fault. It is almost impossible for a person to accept that he is at fault, even more so for a Jew.
My Comment: What can be done if it is a law of nature? Why should I believe myself and not believe several millions of people who say it is my fault?
Question: Do I have to believe them?
Answer: Don’t believe them. Where is the truth? Who can say? Therefore, we turn to Kabbalah, our ancient teaching, where it all has been disclosed.
In The Book of Zohar and the Torah and everywhere it is said that the people of Israel must bring change, a method of correction, to the peoples of the world, to show them how to be corrected, to pass on this power, and to teach them. If not, then, of course, the nations of the world will, like in ancient Egypt, have claims against the people of Israel.
Thus, there is no way around it. All of nature, all of history, is aimed at explaining that we are to blame for everything.
Question: Do you think that you’ll be able to change the way people think?
Answer: They will listen for a long time, be indignant, but when the time comes, when they feel a real threat, then it is quite possible that a moment before they are led again to extermination, they will come to their senses and be able to make the proper correction.
Question: Do you think that this moment will turn the whole wheel of history?
Answer: Of course. I have no right to be silent. Have no right! I have to talk about it, shout, beg, do anything.
