Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Why is there so much hate towards Israel?“
The source of the hatred against Israel is that we, the people of Israel, reject and hate each other. And as much as we hate each other, the nations of the world hate us even more.
If we related to one another more considerately, the world’s attitude toward us would change accordingly. It is because our nation is rooted in the attainment of nature’s positive force—a force of love, bestowal and connection—and if we block this force’s entrance into the world by acting oppositely to it—with hatred and rejection of each other—then the nations of the world feel us as clogging an abundance of delight from flowing onto them. They then instinctively attribute the suffering they increasingly endure in life as somehow connected to Jews. Antisemitic sentiment then cooks within them while increasingly erupting in an exponential increase of antisemitism crimes and threats worldwide.
If we realize what made us the people of Israel to begin with, by implementing the attitude of “love your friend as yourself” among each other, then we would see the hatred toward Israel invert into an attitude of love and respect for a people that let the positive forces of love, bestowal and connection flow into the world; a people who elevate humanity to a higher level of unity, harmony and peace.
