Understanding their tricks is halfway to defeating their fear-mongering
Their basic trick is to keep the country divided. This is how they do it.
Divisiveness is Stupid
Antisemites show the Left how sad they are. Once they have their ear, they show anger. The Left feels ashamed and pained for them.
Then, antisemites hail terrorism. Proudly praising past and future mass murderers. The Right gets gravely alarmed. This is dangerous.
No, says the Left, you make them unhappy. You are dangerous. They hate us because of you. No, they don’t. They’d hate us anyway. Learn history.
No, says the Right, you appease murderers. You are dangerous.
No, they don’t need encouragement. They’ll hate us with a passion anyway.
Despite being a capitalist, Bibi saved thousands during the pandemic.
No, the opposition leader knew better. He became PM. He did no better.
The antisemites watch the Jews infight and are so pleased.
It’s the same as in many relationships. People fight deeply enflamed about practically nothing. That’s an issue worthy of spoiling the bond or mood?
Unity is Holy
The Story of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) shows that when one is united, anything is possible. Even when one is united to do bad things. Then, G^d Himself must interfere to stop it. How much more power we’ll have when we unite for good things, the safety and blossoming of the Jewish People to provide wisdom and guidance to all of Humanity!
We have G^d, our Prayers, the IDF, and Laws that demand a super majority before ever endangering Israel again. The danger is over.
Our (ultra-) Left is not dangerous. Our (ultra-) Right is not dangerous. The real dangers come from outside, people who really hate and split us up.
Reb Shlomo Carlebach said: The Jewish People is like a bird. It needs both wings to fly. He also said, when asked what he’d vote for: I’m like G^d. ‘He Who chooses psalm songs’ (we say every morning, just before Barechu).
Religious/secular and Jewish/Gentile are needless antagonisms too. It’s time to care for each other. Them/us is so 2021. Humans have no long-term conflicts of interest. What’s truly good for one is good for everyone.
When we’re united, even antisemites will respect us. We’ll enforce peace. We’ll uproot poverty. Our lives will be good, and our futures even better.
NB: A Centrist on fire is different from a lukewarm Centrist. The latter doesn’t differentiate between Left and Right and calls them equal. They are not. Each has its own evil. The Left gets easily angry and totalitarian because they want the good for everyone and may forget that you can’t force people to choose that. Their true idealism for equality doesn’t elevate them above the rest. Do you hear the irony? The Right easily forgets all morality because Capitalism works for them. Money blinds.
Be very careful before you accept an infuriating report as 100% true. It might be exaggerated, twisted, or completely made up. If you find it hard to believe that people would lie about things like that, still try to believe it.
Be a radical Centrist. Tell others they can do better. Tell people to unite.
