On 4/29/12 the Jerusalem Post is holding its first Conference in New York City. Among the established
group of speakers and guests are Israel's political, military, intelligence, media and business community. All of them
have had the opportunity to bring Israel out of the emergency room in which she was born 64 years ago. It is unfortunate that
all of these dignitaries have failed during their terms of service. However, what is most unfortunate is that none of them
- even the single most lucid soul amongst them - possesses the first quality necessary to direct Israel out of the 'emergency
What would the Moshiach say to these people if he had the opportunity
First of all he will know that no one is going to hear him. He will understand that the
people of Israel aren't reaping horrible curses for two thousand years because they are deliberately suicidal and masochistic.
He understands that their minds have been corrupted by various ideas and concepts which preempt the continuous functioning
of logic. He knows that this is a curse which God alone will remedy. And he knows that he will leave his people's leaders,
gathered as they are at yet another gala celebration with a heavy heart.
will however tell them that intellect and courage are not enough to take 'baby Israel' home from the 'emergency
room'. He will tell them that vision is the prerequisite for Israel's departure from
the emergency room incubator. He will tell them that vision is what Israel must have in
order to make her entrance into the world of the nations. He will remind them that Israel never was and never
will be like the other nations. He will remind them that no nation has ever operated with this vision and that no nation can
offer any advice to Israel except "to thine own self be true"!
He will tell them that all the nations of the planet are waiting for Israel to act like Israel.
And he will tell them that they must allow this vision which is Israel's identifying principle to operate in all future
discussions and operations.
No general, no chief
of intelligence, no business leader, no reporter and no spiritual leader of the nation has ever applied this vision. The Tanach
is replete with examples of this vision. Encapsulated, it is simply that only Israel has a holy Covenant with the Creator
and Israel has a destiny unique and vastly different from any other people on the planet. No model taken from the other nations
will work for Israel and no compliance with the ideas of other nations will remove Israel from the emergency room. Israel
must look to God for the vision which is implanted in our destiny in our DNA and in our Creation. Israel is the world leader
and Israel tells the world how to live. And Israel proves this because Israel becomes intelligent enough to follow her God's
commands including those which determine how to defend her people. Israel is the nation which conquers her ego and pierces
through the false mask of the world's nations to make a place for her people which renders the entire planet subservient
to Israel ! Israel is the nation which humbly picks up her Contract and recites her wedding vows and then returns to the huppah
of her 'Groom' and swears her fidelity forever and ever - and means it. Israel then wipes her eyes of the spider's
webs and becomes a new creation in the universe. Israel arises from the so - called homosapien species and becomes Israel,
the people in whom the Lord God of Israel is the Lord, Teacher, Intelligence officer, Chief of General Staff, Commercial director,
Spiritual guru and Benefactor. And when Israel really gets this, she rises yet another octav in evolution to become Yeshurun
whose heart and soul are one with her Maker.
The Moshiach will tell his beloved family, gathered at the fancy hotel, that if we just do it as he says, if we just
accept into our souls the Godly vision of the nation of priests whom God created us to be, then we will be invincible.
The Moshiach knows that many of the guests know that the America which exists behind
the scenes has been sabotaging our invasion of Iran. He knows their fears of world isolation, of boycotts of pogroms of being
thrown out of educational institutions, etc. Yet he will tell them to muscle up and be true to themselves, because no other
option ever existed or will ever exist - no matter how hard they try to make other options fit her special destiny !
He will tell the guests to tighten their souls and harden their fists and punch with all their belief through
a wall of brick which men have built to lock them in the emergency room where the world will be 'free' from the dominance
of the nation whom God created to redeem the entire planet from illusion, despair, tyranny and oppression.
He will walk out of the august gathering feeling small and useless, because the people will once again replay
the same play which led to their slaughter 70 years ago when they refused to be true to themselves, to their Covenant, to
their God and to their ultimate and only destiny. He will greet the spring time with sack cloth, knowing he has failed again
and that he must prepare for the annihilation of his brothers and sisters. He knows that this time he will return to continue
the war , to bury the millions of dead and to lead those who survive the multi - front war to victory.
