The Redefiners of Judaism Take Insult as Usual

 

Education Minister Rabbi Rafi Peretz stated in a cabinet meeting that the rate of assimilation among the Jewish community in the United States is “like a second Holocaust.” His reference was in respect of the facts known that over fifty-percent of Jews in the United States, Canada and Europe are intermarrying with Christians and secular humanists leaving their Judaism behind ignored and in tatters. Immediately after his comments were leaked, a problem in Israel just as it is in the United States and other Western governments, many Conservative and Reform Jews in the United States. Their insistence is that Rabbi Peretz is ignorant and insensitive to Jews in the Diaspora. This is far from the first time that an Israeli has been accused with lacking the proper attitudes and totally misunderstanding the true reality of what it means to be a Jew in the modern age. This is always how the condemnation of the insistence by Israeli Jews, largely the Orthodox community, for their insensitivity and lack of knowledge of what modern Judaism has evolved into. Their claims are simple, they should define what is a Jew and what Judaism actually believes and means as they call it, in this modern age.

 

We thought that perhaps as av graduate of this United States Diaspora Jews inculcations by which Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist and other non-Orthodox branches of Judaism have redefined the Halacha to fit their social constructs making them estranged from Torah. The main terminology one would hear from these New Age Jews is Tikkun Olam which they define as repair the world. They take this idea and instead of it meaning that they need to perfect and improve themselves in order to make the world right, they think that they need to make everyone else come around and believe as they do in order to repair the world. They have redefined the Commandments of Torah bending them in order to align them with the platform of the Democrat Party and the beliefs of Secular Humanists. Their reactions to anybody who does not fall in line with their beliefs and definitions are immediately considered to be any of any number of stock names, racist, homophobic, sexist or any other of the plethora of labels thrown around to slam their opponents making them easily discarded as ignorant and uninformed boors. So, how is it that things changed to the point that I not only support Rabbi Rafi Peretz and most of what he has stated, all of which has perturbed the Diaspora Jews and their Tikkun Olam warping of the Commandments of Torah and Judaism.

 

The first thing which probably made my transition to Traditional Orthodoxy since making Aliyah returning home to Eretz Yisroel was our coming home with absolutely no preconceived notions of what to expect of Israel, the societal means or almost anything at all. We came with a wait and see what it is we had come into and exactly what the effects were going to be. It took about six months before finding out that it is far easier to be a practicing Jew in Israel than it was in most places in the United States, especially since I often resided in places like north-central Wyoming where the closest Synagogue was over four-hundred-miles distant and Kosher foods were next to impossible outside of Hebrew National salamis. Then began regular attendance to services, joining classes about Talmud, Torah, Haftorah and other things which covered Judaism and the Commandments giving it straight and without bending, twisting, spindling and otherwise mutilating these writings. This led to noting that most of Judaism was very different from what had been instructed and far more self-centered with the intent for self-improvement. Judaism also had no desire to change other people from outside of Judaism but to improve ourselves to such a degree that others will desire to strive for self-improvement. Judaism, as it has been explained, provides Commandments by which Jews can improve their interaction with others and make of themselves people living an enviable life while not proselytizing others and never even attempting to make converts of others. Judaism is to be practiced by the Jewish People and also converts, despite Judaism making conversion fairly difficult. Often, true conversion takes at a minimum two years of intense studying, and then passing queries posed by a panel of Rabbis.

Conversion brings us to another point which we will utilize to show the difficulty facing the Jews of the Diaspora and the Jews within Israel. The Chief Rabbinate set the rules for which one is considered Jewish, including how to convert to Judaism. Needless to point out, conversion to Judaism has strict rules before it is accepted by the Chief Rabbinate. This has brought great amounts of condemnation from largely leftist Jewish groups and the leadership of the Conservative, Reform and other non-Orthodox folds of Judaism. Their complaint is that many conversions they have performed are unacceptable within Israel and one who converts to Judaism under many of their systems are not acceptable as being a Jew unless they again convert in Israel under the auspices of the Chief Rabbinate. The Chief Rabbinate is often labeled as being overly strict, restrictive and narrow-minded in their recognition of conversions and they need to become more liberal allowing for these New-Age Judaism and their open-mindedness allowing for an open definition as to who is Jewish as after all, there should be little difference between conversion to Judaism and conversion to any other religion. They are totally aware that their critics are based on falsehoods as the Israeli Chief Rabbinate accepts conversions conducted by the RCA (Rabbinical Council of America), the Orthodox Union (OU) and here is a list of approved conversion performed outside Israel. The list is relatively extensive and approved conversions can be readily found by any desiring to convert and ready for a minimum of two years of intense learning.

 

But those Jewish groups and other non-Orthodox branches of Judaism refuse to accept that the Israeli Chief Rabbinate uses identical rules and requirements to those used by every of those listed as approved which in the United States include the RCA and OU conversions. Again, those in the Diaspora insist that Israel bend their rules and accept their definition of Judaism simply because they are more enlightened, open-minded free-thinking and tolerant. That is partly the problem as Judaism must remain strictly defined and steeped in traditions as well as kept honoring, respecting and following the exact rules of Torah given by Moses during the Exodus. Judaism is not to conform to the ideas of the Justice Democrats, the New Israel Fund, IfNotNow and numerous other Jewish leftist groups who all demand Israel accept their unarguable perfect and correct definitions of Judaism and what it means to be a good person. Their vision is an Israel as a subordinate to the Democrat Party platform and the leftist agenda based on their concepts of justice, LGBTQ rights, human rights, and demanding that Israel sacrifice whatever it takes to reach peace with the Palestinian Authority. Basically, these Diaspora Jews refuse to accept Torah Judaism as it has been defined for over three-thousand-years and instead supplant Torah with their LGBTQ, international justice, human tights and numerous other leftist central beliefs replacing Torah. Having lived in both communities, it can honestly be stated that Torah Judaism is centered and planted firmly in Jewish history and practice while the leftist justice warriors who insist that they can make and define a batter Judaism would not be planted and continue into the future with anywhere near the practicality of Torah which has steadies and defined Judaism for three-thousand-years plus. Judaism must remain centered on Torah which has been its anchor and the rock upon which it was founded. This does not mean that Judaism should ignore modernity, Judaism just need remain set in Torah while moderating these other new liberal and leftist concepts and ideas which Diaspora Jews are so enamored. We in Israel need not fear these Jews redefining Israel as the odds for their ever-making Aliyah, if what has been experienced when we decided to make Aliyah, the number of Conservative Jews from our congregation dumbfounded asking why would we ever desire to go to such a forbidding place. After moving here, we can inform these Jews, though they will not believe us, but they are the ones residing in what is rapidly becoming a forbidding place and Israel is the little wonder of the world.

What are the Jews to Expect from the World?

We are told that we are not supposed to expect much from the world. We are further told that the world is not likely to understand or be particularly favorable towards us. We are not to expect the world to understand Jews or Judaism as they are unlikely to have read the Torah or the Bible, in this case the Old Testament. We are told that this does not matter as it is the Jews responsibility to learn Torah and practice all of its Laws and Commandments, all six-hundred-thirteen Commandments. We are to obey the Oral Law which will be our duty and through learning and practicing to live as Hashem desires of the Jews, we can affect the world. Through our actions we can affect the world both for goodness and for evil. The main expectation we have is that should we ever master living lives worthy of Hashem, then the world will take care of itself and peace will rule over the world. But then again, if all Jews were to meet this expectation for a decent length of time, such would usher in the Messiach which would perfect the world. We should not see our actions as repairing the world, we are to repair that in ourselves and should we actually perfect our own lives, then the world will take care of itself and the Messiach would arrive to set the world on its course of perfection. This is, of course, a near impossibility, for every Jew to obey the Laws and Commandments from Torah and as instructed by those knowledgeable of these laws and are charged with teaching us. We also are told to read the Torah and engross ourselves in its words and its ways such that we are to be holy before our Creator. The entire being a Jew sounds easy, except it is not nor is it intended to be easy. Following all that Hashem expects from us is supposed to be a struggle which only a few ever succeed in each generation. These select few may not be the Torah scholars but rather these righteous individuals can be anybody and it is their actions which save our world. The Jews can make the challenge put before these righteous individuals much easier simply by taking care of our own actions.

 

This brings us to what we are to expect of the world. Basically, not all that much is to be expected of the world until we have perfected ourselves. This is the actual instruction given for us to perform to perfect the world, to practice that which we call Tikkun Olam. Largely, Jews are expected to live a Torah observant life and to be holy before Hashem. Would the Jews master this calling and all stand before Hashem and be found worthy of the Messiach, then Hashem will allow for the Messiach to come and rule over the Jews and the rest of the world would see how wonderful our lives have become that they will, in turn, desire to become holy before Hashem, or at least do so as best as they are able. As Jews, we are not to attempt to take on the world and all its problems, threats and challenges as until we have perfected ourselves, who are we to perfect the world. Our example of living a holy life and reaping the rewards which come with such observance will take care of making the world become more perfect. When those who are not Jewish come and ask for guidance towards living a holy life, we are to instruct them on performing the Noahic Code (listed below). These are the seven Commandments provided Noah which were to lead to a perfected world, a perfected world simply by humankind following seven simple rules. These rules are listed in the Torah as a barometer on how the people of the world are behaving. Part of the reason for the Torah and its six-hundred-thirteen Laws was for setting one peoples before the world as an example for how to live a moral life. These laws, when followed, allow for the world to be perfected and thus all will see the Jews living as Hashem expects of them and the rewards they receive in the form of crops and other endeavors taken up by the Jews yielding great rewards, the example provided by the Jews will bring people who will ask, demand even, for the Jews to share with them the ways of Hashem so they too can have the goodness of the land.

 

This brings us to what the Jews are supposed to provide as answers to their questions of how they are to follow Hashem. The expectations the world is to follow has radically fewer Commandments as there exist in Judaism. This Divine Code of laws were initially provided before Noah which is why they are also known as the Noahic Code. This group of laws is significantly less in numbers from the six-hundred-thirteen Commandments expected of a Jew, the Divine Noahic Code consists of a mere seven laws (see graphic below). These, we are told, are the minimal number of laws required in order to have a functioning, good and civilized society. Through having humankind obey the Noahic Code will the world be set on the path towards redemption. This sounds easy, but remember that first the world will be required to meet expectations, something that the world finds difficult to do as they stray from the path which Hashem laid out before them. This was partly the cause of the Great Flood. Hashem promised Noah that never again would Hashem destroy the world in the same manner. We are to remember this promise as a challenge for us to all follow the Noahic Code. When non-Jews inquire of Jews to be instructed in the proper way to live, we are not supposed to inundate them with the Mitzvoth of Torah and all that is entailed in the Laws; instead we are to give them the Seven Noahic Code of Laws, the Divine Code. Should they respond with the query as to ask, is this all that we need, the Jew is supposed to tell then it will suffice and is not as easy as one may believe and they should first attempt to live by the Seven Laws and wish them well.

 

The Divine Code of Seven Universal Commandments

The Divine Code of Seven Universal Commandments

 

The Jews need follow the entirety of Torah and Oral Law which requires that we rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem. Inside Judaism there is the controversy as to whether we mortals are to rebuild the Sanctuary and the Temple or should we wait for the Messiach before rebuilding. Then there are those who are of the belief that Hashem will provide the last Temple and it will either drop out of the sky or simply appear out of nothing, but we hold the belief that we are required to build the Temple, but not until we have gathered the ingathering and are following the laws of the Written and Oral Codes ourselves. There are those who claim that this is a task which we will never reach completion as it demands too much from us. Where six-hundred-thirteen Laws does initiate quite a challenge, we need remember that approximately one-third of the Laws deal with the daily services and rituals performed by the Cohanim and Levites and the correct distribution of the eaten parts of the sacrifice. These Laws are all concerning the rituals and instruct the order for the daily sacrifices. It was Maimonides wrote in, “The Guide for the Perplexed,” stating, “that God deliberately has moved Jews away from sacrifices towards prayer, as prayer is a higher form of worship,” and this has been taken as a sign that the sacrifices will instead be prayers with the expectations that all Jews will be expected to pray and assist in carrying out this burden. This is another of those items which time will tell and provide us with signs and answers if only we are sufficiently intelligent to interpret them.

 

Initially, we were taught back in the times of the two Temples, mankind was brutish and uncivilized with the majority not even aware of the Divine Code nor aware of Hashem as they worshiped idols and their idolatry included often human and child sacrifice. Judaism spends an inordinate amount of effort refuting any possible reason which might claim that idolatry was a good thing. Many of the idolaters also practiced human sacrifice even to include child sacrifice, something the Jews were forbidden from doing. In Judaism, all human life is precious. As to what the Jews were to expect from the world during the Biblical and Temple period was very little. The outside world was perceived more as a threat than an opportunity. We were warned that should we follow in the path of Hashem, then we would receive the necessary rain for our crops and would not be defeated by those others who basically surrounded us. Should we fail to follow the Commandments from Hashem, then initially the rain would stop and famine would come as a warning to repent. Should the Jews not repent, then they would be conquered which is exactly what occurred bringing the First and Second Temple Periods to an end. Jewish sages placed the main reason for the destruction of the First Temple to the people turning to idolatry and the Second Temple’s destruction was due to Jews disrespecting one another. These horrific disasters which struck the Jews could have been used as a moment of learning, but as is usual, no lessons were taken to heart by the world. One good sign that the Jews may have learned something from the destruction of the First Temple came from archaeological excavations of Jerusalem, Hevron and other ancient cities before the destruction of the First Temple, it was common to find what would have been household idols and personal idols and in excavations of post First Temple Period almost completely devoid of idols.

 

In current times and with the return of Israel, our ancient homelands, Jews will once again have their own nation. This will bring up the question as to what the Jews expect from the world. We need to be brutally honest with ourselves and with the peoples of the world. We do not expect that suddenly the Jews will have become the darlings of the world with everyone loving them. What we expect is rejection of our return by at the least half of the world if not more and indifference from the majority of the remainder. The United Nations has proven that even that might have been overly optimistic. We do not expect acceptance by many who practiced replacement theology as they took a path in which the Jews are the accursed. Jews have no chance for redemption unless they renounce Judaism and convert to whichever Christian or Islamic sect or denomination holding to this theory. Islam believes that they not only replaced the Jews but also the Christians and that they are the final reformation which was inspired by heaven. Any following of replacement theology views the Jews as accursed and having been cast away by Hashem never to be restored to their ancestral position or to their ancestral homelands. This is partly why the Catholic Church, almost all of Islam and numerous Christian sects which denounce the Jews returning to Israel and demanding that the Jews and Israel be destroyed. This comes down to a basic and central concept within replacement theology in that the Jews cannot return to their ancestral lands and rebuild the temple as such would be proof that Hashem never did condemn the Jews and forsake the Jews but rather still holds to the covenant between Hashem and the Jews. The Jews cannot expect anything other than continued rejection from these peoples.

 

From the world at large, the Jews pretty much expect little to nothing. The Jews require a more inward inspection where they need to reach some conclusions to some very deep questions. The biggest of these is whether or not to rebuild the Temple and, if so, where. Such an effort will have those holding to replacement theology doing everything in their power to prevent this from being completed. We hope that with time Israel will become more religious and we will live better lives following the Commandments. As we improve our totality and come closer to Torah, we will then expect that we can affect the world in a positive manner and expect the remainder of the world to at the very least attempt to follow the Noahic Code. We will, as the nation of the Jews, continue to provide disaster relief around the globe whenever disaster places people in need. We will continue to make advances in every field and share these with the world at large. We expect nothing more from the rest of the world beyond please just leave us alone within our tiny lands west of the Jordan and stop attempting to destroy what little we have remaining from the British Mandate, a whole twenty-two-percent with the Arab Palestinians already having been given the seventy-eight-percent of the region. We desire peace and an end to terrorism. Not just in Israel, but over the entirety of humankind wherever we reside and on whatever planet we may find on which to start a colony in the future. We would like to lay claim to Planet Israel pictured below should such ever be found. Otherwise, we simply desire to live amongst everyone in peace and mutual respect.

 

Planet Israel

In the end, the Jews merely desire to be considered as one of those civilized peoples and we simply hope that such a reference continues to apply to more peoples each year. We wish to grant respect to all and hope they will return the same. We hope to treat others with respect, caring, love and peace and hope to receive the same. As Jews we will try and set an example of living a good life where all are granted the respect due them as creatures beloved of Hashem. This, we hope, will spread to the entirety of the world and we can all work together for the mutual benefit in all things. We will respect life. We would like to be able to expect such in return. We wish to grant the world the Noahic Code and in time share the wisdom and ways of the Torah with those who feel the desire to become closer to the teachings in the Torah. We are not seeking to convert any unless they come and ask us. Our mainstay for attracting others is by living the life as defined in Torah. We will not proselytize and only answer those who inquire. Even those seeking to convert will find that it is not easy to do. This is intentional as we only wish those who will represent Judaism with the warmth, love and respect for human life and Hashem with all the Commandments held in their heart. We hope to be mindful of others and pray to receive the same. We do not desire more land or to rule over the world or even rule others, taking care of ourselves is sufficient challenge. We do not seek wealth but are not afraid of it either. We do seek acceptance and know to receive such one must first grant acceptance which we will to all with a special place for those following the Divine Code and an even closer place in our heart for those of the Covenant, keepers of the Commandments. It really is that simple.

Judaism is a Liberation Movement and not a Suppressive Movement

Many far leftist Jews are fleeing from Judaism under the misconception that Judaism is a restrictive, suppressive, supremacist and exclusionary religious force. Nothing could be more incorrect, but then they see Judaism through the lens of strict laws of the Orthodox and the lifting of the Commandments by the Reform movement. They are taught that the Reform movement is the freeing of Judaism from the restrictive and closed-minded world the ultra-religious Jews have formed. They go further in claiming that the ultra-religious Jews resided throughout Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa in closed and often walled or fenced communities separating them from the remainder of humanity. This was depicted as these communities being exclusionary and oppressive, forcing the turning inward of the members of the Jewish community. But is any of this accurate or is it a misrepresentation of the facts?

 

The first thing which requires understanding is the picture of the Jewish People throughout the regions where they reside are all restricted and enclosed by walls or merely fences. This was true, but for a very different reason. The enclosing of the Jewish communities was not built by the Jews to keep out all ‘others,’ but was erected by those others in order to separate the Jews from their pure neighborhoods. These walls and fences were to keep the Jews restricted from the rest of society protecting their people from the Jew and not built by the Jews to retain their purity. If one of the outsiders would marry a Jew or Jewess, they would be considered compromised and their children as less pure than a pure Christian, while in the Muslim world it was considered advantageous to take a Jewess as one of your wives as long as the children are raised as Muslims and never are told that they are Jewish by definition. But exactly what does Judaism have to say to the remainder of the world, to those who are not Jewish?

 

Judaism has what is probably the earliest pluralistic faith. The Jews are tasked with keeping the Commandments given to the Israelite Tribes at Mount Sinai through Moses, the lawgiver. By keeping these Commandments, the Jews will be granted good fortune and the ability to show to the world what living a true Torah life is good. The Jews are not to impose these Commandments upon the non-Jews but instead to simply request that non-Jews at least follow the Noahic Code. This means that the Jews only ask that everyone else simply follow what have been called the Seven Codes of Noah and not the six-hundred-thirteen Commandments from the Torah. Hopefully, this comes as a relief to all non-Jews. Jews are supposed to prove that living by the laws of Hashem are for the good of mankind and are the way to living a life which will be rewarded. But it does not stop there, as there is more, there is always more, but you will be surprised if this is all new or the first time you are hearing these truths.

 

Noahic Codes

Noahic Codes

 

Judaism actually does request one thing from all of the non-Jews. This request is that they allow us to live in our lands unthreatened and in peace. In exchange, the Jewish People will share everything discovered and all advancements and other truths as they are revealed to the Jews. We do not demand or even request that any non-Jew convert and will actually question why anybody would desire to convert as being a Jew requires much from any Jew while Judaism requires little from non-Jews beyond our freedom to Serve Hashem unhindered. We wish that we be basically left free to follow Torah and tending to our needs. We do not desire to tell others what they must or must not do. We do not desire to tell people how to live, only to provide a simple guide to what Hashem defines as a good and righteous life, the Noahic Code. Judaism does not demand that we proselytize but simply requires that we explain to those who ask, nothing more. Even when one takes an interest in what it means to be a Jew and what Judaism teaches, we simply answer their question without any implication that they consider converting and when they may request to learn about converting, we are instructed to question why they would even desire converting when that makes one’s life far more restricted while they can adopt whatever parts of Judaism they find applicable without converting and thus make their lives far more relaxed. Even once they start to learn the two years of instruction, on average, required to be mastered before one is admitted to join the Jewish People, we ask repeatedly what is driving them and are they sure this is what they really want. Yes, that is true, we actually make conversion fairly difficult and also requiring they show a knowledge and desire to commit fully to Judaism and the Commandments, even far more than many Jews actually follow, and pass testing which is administered by a board of selected Rabbis depending upon the region and level of religious observance, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist or other. Not every level of observance recognize the conversions performed by the others. In the meantime, allow that the Jewish People are to require only that they be permitted to perform their religious rites and attend to their religious obligations without being hindered.

 

The Jewish People do not have any designs on world conquest or domination of any kind. Once there was an expansive stage within Judaism, where the Israelite Empire under Kings David and Solomon conquered a region of land depicted below. Even after conquest, while Jews were granted superior rights but as long as the conquered peoples paid their tithe, their taxes, to Jerusalem, they were permitted to continue in their normal lives. This was the Greater Israel which stretched from the Euphrates River to the River of Egypt, which has often been interpreted to mean the Nile where it actually referred to the river which was the border with Egypt, called the Wadi of Egypt. There is no desire or reason which would have modern Israel demanding more lands than what was promised by the series of councils, conferences, treaties and mandates which were conceived and enacted after World War I and well before the Holocaust. This proves beyond any doubt that the desire of the Jewish People to return to the Holy Lands was real and founded well before the Holocaust and World War II and that Zionism predates even World War I and was only spurred further by the indigenous peoples’ movements after World War I.

The fact that at the end of the Seder service there is a prayer which states, “Next year in Jerusalem,” a desire stated after numerous other prayers and services, is indicative of the Jewish People’s desire for the return to their ancient homelands. These are only the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea east and west, the Wadi of Egypt which is the current border between Israel and Egypt, the Blue Line which defines the border with Lebanon despite the reality that the traditional border for Israel’s northern border was the Litani River, and the east end of the Golan Heights with Jordan. This is the dream of the Zionists and nationalist Jews, nothing more or less. The Zionist leadership worked with the victorious powers after World War I, particularly Britain which produced the Balfour Declaration which was the kickoff of the eventual founding of the Jewish state of Israel. The promise to the Jews came as part of the redrawing of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, the German Empire and the Ottoman Empire, the three losing powers from World War I. The United Nations adopted the Mandate System which promised the above boundaries for the Jewish State. Once these lands are permitted the Jewish People, then it is thought that a period of peace may come to much of the Earth, but this unfortunately appears to be something which much of the world refuses to permit.

 

The Jews in these modern times have only a desire to build ourselves a homeland within its honestly restrictive size to the most and as far as we are able. We hope to unravel the mysteries in physics and the challenges of space. We desire to find the most advantageous means for growing crops, producing potable water, cures for diseases, treatments for cancer, the means by which humankind can achieve advances unthinkable in our times which will become evident in the future once we have attained the knowledge to imagine these wonders and to serve as an exemplary civilization through which the entire world can learn to live together in harmony for the mutual advancement. Somehow, people have taken this curiosity for desires to prove we are superior to others and lord over the world. This is untrue as we hope only to enlighten the world by setting an example which is so desirable as to have the world choose to follow our examples but not to have them bow to our lead. We will have sufficient challenge ruling over ourselves and finding the correct path we can follow which is defined by Torah, which is in and of itself a sufficient challenge. We could only expect the rest of the world to pick and choose those parts of our example which serve them best and would never expect any other civilization or group to adopt all the challenges of Judaism.

 

Star of David Ornate

 

The only request which the Jewish State, the eventual home for the vast majority of Jews, has is that we be permitted to live in peace within the borders promised to the Jewish People by the Mandate System. This would simply require for the sizeable groups of the Europeans to decide that Israel and the Jews are not the greatest threat to humanity. This would simply require for the vast selection of Arab nations to decide that they are not threatened by Israel and to reside beside us in peace and mutual prosperity. This would simply require for the United Nations to end its dedicated hatred and selecting Israel specifically for condemnations and sanction. And finally, this would simply require for the other religions to decide that Judaism is no threat which wishes to take over the world and simply decide that there is more good which will result from a Jewish State than any possible threat it could pose. If the United Nations General Assembly is any indication, it will require one-hundred-twenty-plus nations out of one-hundred-ninety-three member nations to stop supporting every motion against Israel simply for political or hateful reasons. In the end, such alterations in world vision could be the beginning of a new future in which all will reap rewards from befriending Israel.
