- I know, we go by our Sages, not by the Tanach itself. Yet, there is an exceptionally relevant line in there that beautifully clarifies most aspects of this matter and we should definitely learn from it. It goes like this: "They provoked Me with a non-god, angered Me with their vanities; so shall I provoke them with a non-people, with a vile nation shall I anger them." Dvarim, (Deut. 32:21). So, what could we learn from this, if we wanted to? First, most importantly, that it is He, Hashem, who runs the world. Let's never forget that! We don't have enemies "by chance", He gives them to us. Second, specific punishments are given for specific sins. In this particular case, an obviously "non-people", the "palestinians" are given to us for what? For idol worshipping and for our vanities, which is related. We put our hopes and aspirations in the State and its IDF and instead to Hashem, we attribute our safety, our very lives to them. That is our idol worshipping today and that is why we are punished with the "palestinians", with a vile, obviously non-nation. The approval of their phony state by the UN last week is an indication that Hashem may consider our behavior-pattern worsening, rather than getting any better. There is a reason that this country, Israel, never knew a day of peace in the 65 years of its history. The reason of course is us. We are not doing what we supposed to be doing here. Instead of relying more and more on the strength of the IDF and support the Hellenistic democracy of the State, which, by the way, is the goyshe way, for our security we should turn the State Jewish and the IDF Jewish. Last week's UNGA vote is a warning that we are not doing this and should we fail, G-d forbid, we'll be thrown out from His Land. Indeed, this Land is ours conditionally. From a divine prospective, what's the point in keeping us on it? Kiddush Hashem of course, the glorification of G-d's name. If we kiddush Obama and pour cement on the Land as opposed to Torah, clearly we'll continue to merit our increasing problems. Again, Netanyahu's reaction, the 3000 building permits is counter-productive. He should be given one building permit, that of the Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as we are put here not to serve ourselves, but Hashem. This is the big mistake Zionism, secular or religious makes: It replaces the love of Hashem with the love of the Jew. They can get away with it because the love of the Jewish people also is a mitzvah, a requirement, a good deed and they claim that they are doing this. But in reality, they don't. Their love of the created comes first, in conjunction or even without the love of Hashem and so we are risking to have more of the kind of problems we face today, like the "palestinian" problem. The solution is simple and it is in the hand of every Jew. We simply have to show Hashem that we worship Him, not the replacement entities. In practice it means refraining from joining the IDF and refraining from voting for knesset, both non-Torah institutions of the secularist, kofer State. If we refrain from doing the voluntary actions in support of this golden calf, we send a positive signal to Hashem: We tell Him we are with You, please give us Your peace. If we don't, well, let me not elaborate on this here. Let me just mention that we know pretty well what it's like when He hides His face from us. With last week's UN vote we were warned: We are entering to a similar situation. It's '39 again. So let's prevent it and stop provoking Him before it's too late, individually and as a nation. Let's do this now, while we still can, before it gets a lot, lot worse.
