To answer the above question – just think what would make the world correct.
Rabbi Kessen explains on Rosh Hashannah (google it) the world is evaluated as to where it is toward it’s goal of Tikkun Olam. I might add, this Tikkun is essentially the reconnecting of the world above (Shamayim) to Ha’aretz (see: Briyaat Ha’Olam). It is for this reason that R”H is celebrated by Jews only even though the world in it’s entirety is being evaluated and judged. It is the Jew that is to be in charge of connecting the two worlds closer to oneness. When we enter R”H it is really an evaluation of our status and where and what participation we want toward the universal goal of oneness of God and creation. What is our part?
For one thing, it is incumbant as the Torah & Rambam write “to know G-d in all your ways”. This being the essential task of man and hence fits perfectly with the oneness of the end of days where earth and heaven unite. When you’ve done this you can be an influence to all around you without hesitation and without worry.
The above step will then compell you to act and here are some examples.
- If you live in Hutz La’aretz (outside of Israel). Come home. Make plans as it’s been some 67 years and over 100 – 2500 years in the making. We don’t need any more a clearer message from up high the process calls for the return of Jews home to Israel. The sheer power of recreating the unity of Jews begins physically that can then transpire in steps to unity of a nation’s soul. It is also the land where G-d promises the unity of his people with him through the land of Israel alone.
- When and if you’re in Israel, you must calmly and collectively voice clearly all your thoughts and action toward achieving the goal of unity of heaven and earth.
Conquering and inheriting the land of Israel is a Torah commandment repeated over and over. So when we go out to war, we must do so to conquer and inherit the land that G-d wants to give us. So don’t settle for less in fulfilling G-ds will here. We’ve seen Israeli citizens couching and avoiding war at all costs. We see the clear commandment above and avoid it, so G-d has thrusted it upon us. We in turn didn’t get the message, and couched to the enemies asking for peace. A great gift G-d has done has been to instill the hate of nations on the Jewish people. For if it wasn’t so, who would stand up to say no, it’s a commandment to inherit the land regardless ? Rather we would have an overwhelming majority of Jews supporting and even demanding to have other nations live among us , integrate and assimilate in harmony. The result would be a full eventual assimilation and eradication of the Jewish people. If of course, nature would take it’s course. But the Jewish people are not a ‘natural’ people with no guidance.
Coming and living in Israel requires to shake of the shakles of the exile where we kept our heads low – and rightfully so – it was a requirement by God. Returning to the land requires the Jew today to remove all foreign influences of power and leave Jews with the fear of G-d and not man at the helm. This must be so, to attain the unity of heaven and earth.
It is difficult, since those in power are people fearing and not G-d fearing. I would humbly suggest, that if your inscripted to go to the army or children are, refuse. Refuse on the basis that you would love to fight for the country but to win only. Which means we don’t go to war with our hands tied behind our back worrying about our enemy and world opinion. Let it be heard in the media, that you want to fight and win, and not under a government who wants to commit suicide. The peoples opinion to ask all foreign influences to peacefully surrender and live without political power under Jewish rule. A rule that will prohibit intermarriage and influence of foreign culture on the Jewish way – The Torah. If it’s unacceptable – fine, leave. If you want to wage war, fine then war it is and our response is a full force to eradicate the obvious enemy of God and the Jewish people and hence the world’s tikkun. That is true Hesed and Emet.
Ideally, to fulfill the commandment we should have arranged ourselves into an army of Jews from around the world to and inherit the land in 1900. Short of that, Herzl organized politically the Jewish people unknowning it was an explicit Torah commandment. No less, the orthodox Jews fought it !
Stage 2: In 1948 we could have insisited on the entire land of Israel politically or there would be war and with faith in G-d he will allow us to conquer & inherit the land.
Stage 3: While we sat quitely under partition forgiving our conquest and inheritance, G-d thrusted it upon us and in 1967 all armies attacked. So while we dug graves to prepare the inevitable death, we not only defended but what was thrusted upon us was the inheritance of the land of Israel with the return of Yerushalayim , Yehudah Veshomron.
Stage 4: At this point the message is crystal clear. It is our duty and command to fill this mitzvah of conquest and inheritance of the land. The Arabs have now been succumbed by war. It’s time to conquer and establish the borders of Israel as per the Torah. We didn’t get the hint before and we saw it was well beyond our doing. But Noooo, instead we handed over the heart of Jerusalem the Har Habayit to the WAQF, we refused to drive out the inhabitants whose time has come to make way for her people and instead allowed them to stay with autonomy and slowly walked the path of fear to enter our conquered territory. The results devastating. We reverse the will of G-d, instill weakness in our belief in our G-d given land and of course G-d is upset with us.
Stage 4: While beating our hearts with triumph as if it were our own strength that won the war, when it was nothing less than G-d’s forced action to awaken the Jews to conquer and inherit the land. Arabs are emboldened given autonomy, spreading fear to enter their occuppied territory and the Jew slowly subsides and subdues itself. Citizenship and political power is given to Arabs in Israel The cycle strengthens to the absurdity of Intifadah’s where Arabs are emboldened to want autonomy – something they never wanted – and so a clear sign from G-d – conquer and inherit the land – I’ve told you many times, I’ve done it for you many times, now do it ! Finish it, so there will remain some merit of your own !
But nooooo.. Jews fold once again in their own land to their own conquered enemy. So G-d clarifies it further. No peace, let them be emboldened some more, let them now ask for a country in Israel ! and while at the same time initiating war – Intifadah’s. Surely, the Jewish people will realize to conquer and inherit. So Jews react with , give it to them !! Yes, the absurd turns insane, Jews desperately offer more and more land including parts of Jerusalem under Ehud Barak and the will of the people. G-d’s clear message is left unheeded. And G-d increases the heat with the message of 2nd and 3rd intensifying Intifadahs.
Unfortunately the pristine and clear message to conquer and inherit the land is not heard around the country. The overwhelming liberal voices are in control and the Torah commandment is buried. The Jewish people take it a step further in the opposite direction and now hands over full the Souther strip of Gaza to Palestinian authority. Jews are displaced from their land ! How is that for opposites ? So G-d immediately reacts in kind and installs the Terror Hamas organization. So now the message is super clear. The reaction should be let’s begin the reversal of all our damage. Immediately we shall conquer the Gaza and expel and destroy Hamas completely. Then conquer and inherit the rest of the land by acceptance with the enemy or war – just as in the days of Joshua commanded directly by G-d. The clarity is pristine.
Yet, the Torah precept and G-ds will is unnacceptable at all costs. So G-d reacts in kind and rockets rain on Israel – a clear sign of war. Of course the message is clear on what must be done, but Israel is stunned – dumbfounded and while under fire still clinging to their own preverse will against G-d’s – not to conquer and inherit the land. All the lies promulgated would be enough to infuriate the most dovish of humans, but not our stiff necked people. While we suffered losses in kidnappings, killings, linches, and every opportunity to show the will of the enemy acting on God’s command to awaken us, the Jews clung to their foolish mentality inherited by the nations of the world. (Despite that the world cared none for the Jews in exile). We swallowed falsehoods that it wasn’t humane to send them out of Israel for decades. So G-d made it clear and gave them 99.9% of the Middle East territory – so land can’t be it. Still clinging to the strong faith of the nations and not G-d. So let me create ISIS a country sprung up overnight with no outcry . So now all the worries that other countries wouldn’t accept them – is fully dispelled.
Where are the voices now to – let us conquer and inherit the land ?
It seems clear we run into a clear path of intensifying enemy and wars until we reach the conclusion of G-ds clear will to conquer and inherit the land of Israel even if it will be against our will. Unfortunately we’re losing all our merit to fulfill this most fundamental national commandment, while 1/2 the Jews are still lulled in the exile clueless to the real will and real struggle of the Jewish nation and our mission, the other 1/2 of the nation too are subdued in this reality to of the cry of G-d from up above “Conquer and Inherit the Land For I have given it to you and your children forever”
