Joshua 5:1: And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, who were on the side of the Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until they had passed over, that their heart melted, nor was there spirit in them anymore, because of the children of Israel.
Answer: Yes, for this, the Israelites performed special actions: they united and rose above themselves until they suppressed their egoistic desires.
Therefore, these desires no longer prevented them from crossing the border from the desert to the land of Israel, meaning to take the last steps from Malchut to Bina, to the quality of bestowal.
In other words, those egoistic peoples inhabiting the land of Israel, which exist in each of us, already understand that a force has arrived that will not allow them to resist this state. And then there will be a rebound.
On one hand, it is said that there is no longer a spirit in them before the people of Israel. On the other hand, wars will begin because the Israelites themselves will cease to comply with the conditions of staying in the land of Israel, being in desires directed only to the Creator.
Then, accordingly, there will be different laws acting on the Jews, and, as it is written allegorically, they will be attacked by other tribes living in the land of Israel.
Question: Because the Jews abandoned the laws?
Answer: Of course. Exactly the same thing is happening today. The laws are immutable. By entering the land of Israel, we do not fit this land. Everything depends on us.
