Before the people of Israel begin any kind of rapprochement among themselves, they need to realize the reason and explore what forces are dividing them.
Baal HaSulam writes about narrow egoism based on hatred and the shameless use of one’s neighbor. It is narrow egoism that does not consider anything and wants to use everyone only for its own sake, which is our national quality and prevents us from uniting.
Question: Why is such hatred called unfounded?
Answer: Because it has no justification. The fact that nature encourages you to use your neighbor is understandable. But why does it act the way it does? Of course, you are not acting without a reason. You can always say: “I felt like that.”
Question: So unfounded hatred exists only among the Jews or among all nations as well?
Answer: Only among Jews.
Comment: But we see how people of other nations destroy each other with such hatred.
My Response: It does not matter. Let them eat each other if they want to, but there is still a reason for that. And with us it comes from above. The reason for our mutual rejection of each other is above the level of inanimate, vegetative, animate, and egoistic human nature. The Creator Himself, nature itself, arouses hatred in us so that we rise above it.
When we do not see any possibility of existing with our huge egoism, mutual hatred, and rejection, then we will rise above them.
Question: Is it like a game?
Answer: Of course, this is a game, to rise above yourself.
