Jews have always been their own worst enemies!

An article in The Jerusalem Post:

My comment:

But hasn’t this always been the case? Haven’t Jews always caused the greatest damage to themselves?

Since the “golden calf” through the example of the Hellenistic Jews at the time of the Maccabees and the Destruction of the Second Temple unfolding due to the “unfounded hatred” between Jews — not to mention many other “allegorical and real” events, Jews suffered primarily because of the mutual hatred and undermining one another.

Our enemies succeeded and still succeed only because we weaken ourselves and offer ourselves for slaughter on the silver platter.

We must be the stupidest people on the planet; after knowing based on our whole history that unity and mutual guarantee mean life and “unfounded hatred” and infighting means death, we keep reverting to mutual infighting and trying to prove ourselves above one another, and thus we draw more and more suffering and existential danger on Israel and Jews all over the world!

How much suffering do we have to endure to finally understand that only together, only “as one man with one heart” — which we have to achieve and maintain consciously and purposefully above and against the inherently and 100% selfish, exploitative, and hateful human nature — can we survive.

Moreover, only through our unique Jewish method can we show the crucially important positive example to others on how to survive the human ego — which positive example is the only antidote against antisemitism.

When do we become wise?!
