Comment: In the first third of the nineteenth century, the disintegration of the Jewish people in Germany reached its climax, and one of the symptoms of the national malaise was the phenomenon of self-hatred.
Quite often, the Jews who assimilated became Christians or atheists and developed hatred for those who still observed their traditional customs.
My Response: If a Jew is not a Kabbalist who exists on two levels and understands both his animal level, which relates to the peoples of the world, and the spiritual level, which raises him above the animal level and calls him to unite, if he is not guided by the spiritual Kabbalistic principle of “all sins (that is, all differences between us) will be covered by love,” then in the end he becomes at odds with his people.
He loves some, dislikes others; this synagogue he attends, but in that one he will not set foot, etc. All this is based on conflict between people. Therefore, there are as many opinions as the number of Jews out there. The Jews have the same conflicts as all the other nations of the world because their animal root continues to exist from the time of Ancient Babylon.
Comment: The German-Jewish psychologist Kurt Lewin wrote from America, where he fled in 1939: “[a person] will dislike everything specifically Jewish, for he will see in it that which keeps him away from the majority for which he is longing. He will show dislike for those Jews who are outspokenly so, and will frequently indulge in self-hatred. Self-hatred arises from a sense of inferiority, from the fact that the Jew looks at himself through the eyes of the non-Jewish majority, out of fear of being unlike the majority, of being different.”
My Response: Naturally, he will try to be more German, French, and English than the Germans themselves or the French or English. This is what we see.
