If You Want Peace, Prepare for War

220Question: The year 2022 seems to be a year with the call to countries to take up arms.

The French president opened the door to increased military spending by re-evaluating the military planning law and his aim to put the country on a war-economy. Turkey’s President Erdogan and Greece are disputing Greece’s arming some Aegean islands. Germany approved 100 Billion Euro revamp of its army. Poland is rearming actively and quickly. Japan doubled its military budget. And I’m not even talking about South Korea, North Korea.

All the time you say: “Unite!” The world says: “We will arm ourselves!” Where are we going?

Answer: I believe that we are moving toward a normal world. The world is beginning to realize that it must look at itself soberly. Meaning to arm, defend, and soberly treat those who bully. And then there will be peace in the world.

I believe that everyone should be responsible for their own security, and everyone together should be responsible for the common security.

Question: What about all the calls for peace, then?

Answer: And then there will be calls for peace. Then they will actually work. How else? Our whole world is built on egoism; therefore, as long as there is no umbrella over egoism—in Kabbalah it is called a screen—nothing will happen.

Question: But this way we will get to the point where it will continue, modernize?

Answer: No, it will not continue. In fact, the aggressors are permanent. And they see what is against them, that they will not be allowed to play out, and therefore, they will shrink.

Question: Let’s say everyone sees that it is not worth bullying. And then what?

Answer: Then it will still be necessary to move toward the realization that the world should bring itself to life not from the threat of mutual destruction or such but from the fact that it needs to realize the movement toward peace, toward balance, tranquility.

Question: How does it realize this if it feels that the enemy is in front of it all the time and is rearming?

Answer: The enemy will also see that there is such a thing in front of him that is not reacting.

Question: When will we get to the point where they will say: “Stop! We have scared each other enough, now we need to slowly negotiate and turn around”?

Answer: Everyone will understand that the future of the world is in cooperation.

Question: After they become equal in strength?

Answer: No! Not equal in strength. The state of the people must change internally. They have to go through this transformation. And then they will stop scaring others and stop thinking they are exceptional.

Question: The moment will come when they will begin to disarm little by little?

Answer: Of course! It will not make sense. Thus, the world will come to the need for cooperation. And then there will really be unity.
