Today, in Israel we have been witnessing an internal attack on the Jewish State: Korach versus Jeremiah - Jeremiah not in the sense of warning of destruction, but in the sense of bringing the Jews back to their senses in order to avoid destruction.. The past few months it seemed that Korach would win, but Jeremiah is here, with us. Hundreds of thousands of Jews have stood up for Israel, the Light Unto the Nations.
The issue dividing the Jewish people, today, in Eretz Yisrael is not really about Judicial Reform, but a battle between the present day Jeremiah and Korach: The loyal Israelis, the patriots, who want to preserve Eretz Israel for the Jewish People under PM Benjamin Netanyau, and the insurgents, who have been misguided by the opposition led by Lapid and Barak and Olmert and former IDF leaders who did not succeed in politics..
From the moment God spoke to Moses and gave him the ethic of freedom, based on rights and responsibilities, the Jews have been attacked, beginning with Amalek who attacked the weakest amongst the Jews fleeing Egypt. While in exile for 2000 years the Jews were attacked. For the past 75 years, since the rebirth of Israel, on her legal and historical land, we Jews have been attacked and denounced more than any other modern nation. The United Nations, which admitted Israel into the community of nations May 1, 1949, has no love for only Jewish state in the world and the only democracy in the Middle East and North Africa.
Israel is the pariah state of the world. Why?
Sadly, just has there has been an Amalek in every generation, an external enemy, we Jews have had to face internal enemies, beginning with Korach: First cousin of Moses and Aaron. Out of jealousy, Korach led a revolt against Moses and Aaron, claiming that the priesthood should not belong exclusively to Aaron and his descendants. He and his followers were swallowed up by the ground. Calamity is the result of rebellion against God.
Thankfully, The Jewish people are always blessed with a Jeremiah, a leader who reminds us to mend our ways, to return to God before it is too late.
