An article in The Jerusalem Post today:
Israel must assemble a united front for the free world - opinion
Israel stands readily on the front lines, but this is a war of humanity against the perpetrators of crimes against…
There is no such thing as a “free world.”. We are all governed by our inherently selfish, exploitative egos. Every individual and nation calculates and acts only for themselves.
It does not matter if we are talking about autocratic regimes or “quasi-democracies,” each society is built on a small minority controlling, exploiting, and manipulating the majority.
America, for example, has never acted for the sake of anybody else but for America. When they enter “alliances,” they bully others to do what they demand. Their present “unconditional support” for Israel probably has a high price.
Even now, the Western leaders who flew to Israel to show their support are already trying to manipulate Israel.
And as long as we all blindly and instinctively follow our inherent nature, nothing will change, and “evil” — the inherent human ego — will rule in various forms and disguises.
We can defeat our evil ego only through a unique human society, where each individual willingly becomes a selfless and mutually integrated “cell” in the “body of society,” using their unique abilities for the sake of the whole.
This is the template and method the original Nation of Israel was built on — unity and mutual guarantee above and despite everything that separates and rejects people from each other.
Israel will be strong and successful by reviving our ancient method and showing others the only remedy for collective human survival. Then, this “unity alliance” around Israel will also defeat the “external evil.
