Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

The history of Israel and Judah, marked by division after Solomon’s death, is a melancholic prelude to Israel’s contemporary challenges. Like a shattered mirror, each fragment reflects a distorted image of the once-dreamed unity. The vulnerability that followed this split is a constant reminder that strength lies in unity, not separation.

The schism between Pharisees and Sadducees, in turn, is a distant but still audible echo in today’s theological and social disputes. Like lines drawn in the sand, these divisions outlined a map of disagreements that still resonate in the walls of Jerusalem, whispering stories of a fragmented past.

The messianism of Shabbtai Zevi, with its promise of redemption and subsequent disillusionment, is a reminder that faith and hope can be both balms and poisons. The division he caused in the Jewish community is a testament to the fragility of belief and the ease with which it can be manipulated.

Netanyahu, by following a similar path of division, seems to ignore the lessons of the past. Like a conductor of a discordant orchestra, he leads Israel through a symphony of dissonances, where harmony is a forgotten note.

Netanyahu’s strategy of fragmentation, especially regarding Palestine, is like a chess game where each move is calculated to weaken the opponent, but without realizing that the board is cracking under the weight of conflicts.

The isolation of Gaza, a political maneuver by Netanyahu, is like a wall that, although built to protect, ends up imprisoning both sides in a cycle of distrust and fear. It’s a reminder that true security doesn’t come from separation, but from understanding.

The rise of extremist figures, supported by Netanyahu, is an alarming sign that the voices of moderation are being drowned out by the roar of extremes. It’s a dangerous game where balance is sacrificed for power.

Questioning the Israel Defense Forces, an institution that should be a pillar of stability, is like sawing off the branch one is sitting on. Netanyahu, by doing this, not only sows division but also risks the security he so cherishes.

The constant maneuvering between extremist and moderate factions keeps Israel in a state of perpetual division, like a ship without a rudder, at the mercy of internal and external conflict waves. It’s a dangerous dance on the edge of an abyss.

Extremists, empowered by this strategy, gain a disproportionate voice in the national discourse, while moderates, who could be the true architects of peace, are relegated to silence. It’s a reversal of values that threatens the very heart of Israel.

The division promoted by Netanyahu is not just a political strategy; it’s an open wound in the soul of Israel. Like a torn fabric, it threatens to unravel the tapestry of a nation built on the pillars of justice and peace.

Netanyahu’s approach, far from strengthening Israel, leaves it more vulnerable. Like a tree that splits into many branches, Israel risks losing its central strength, becoming fragile in adversity.

Israel’s future, under Netanyahu’s leadership, seems increasingly uncertain. Like a forked path, each step forward seems to lead to greater division, moving the country away from its destiny of peace and harmony.

The vision of a peaceful coexistence, once a beacon of hope, now seems like a distant star, obscured by the clouds of division and extremism. It’s a dream that fades on the horizon, leaving behind only the echo of an unfulfilled wish.

In summary, Netanyahu’s strategy is a labyrinth with no exit, where each turn only leads to more division and conflict. It’s a vicious cycle that threatens not only peace with the Palestinians but the very essence of Israel as a united and strong nation.

This relentless cycle of division under Netanyahu’s leadership is akin to a self-inflicted wound, one that continuously bleeds the nation of its strength and unity. Each divisive action and policy is like a cut that deepens the divide, making the path to healing and reconciliation ever more arduous.

The relentless pursuit of power at the expense of unity is a dangerous gamble, one that risks the very foundations upon which Israel was built. It’s a game where the stakes are the soul and future of a nation, and the dice are loaded with the weight of history and the tears of generations.

In the words of the renowned Jewish philosopher Martin Buber, “A Jew is a person who must prove every day that he is not a mere part of a mass, not a mere member of a collective, but an individual, a being unique and unexchangeable.” This poignant reminder serves as a call to resist the perils of division and to cherish the unique identity and unity of the people of Israel.
