The relevance of Ki Tisha in our time

B"H - Tomorrow we read Ki Tisha, the Torah portion of this week that recounts the story of the Golden Calf. I can't think of any single text which is more relevant to us today than this, at a time when Moshe is not here with us and when we are taught by the Zionists that we have to be strong by ourselves, without any reference to Torah, even if in the Golden Calf episode we are warned against the worshiping what the people want (democracy) instead of waiting out Moshe, to connect us with  G-d. So, one of the morals of the story is that no, the State of Israel is not Moshe and no matter how hard we try, it never will be. Only Moshe is Moshe and we are not allowed to replace him and worship anything other than HaShem, the One G-d! Running the non-prescribed secular State of Israel in G-d's Palace, in the Land of Israel, is one terrible mistake, a sin, comparable with the sin of the Golden Calf,  for which we are not forgiven yet, for which we will still have to be punished G-d forbid, that is if we don't make tsuva, if we don't repent! May G-d save us from His Wrath! Have a Gut Shabes everyone!
