As far as Jewish Supremacy is concerned, I won’t bother to write about that because I know that my editors at The Jewish Press won’t print it. They’ve already trashed other things that I’ve written about our wonderful friends, the gentiles.
However, one of Dukes’ dukes deserves a reply. He writes: “It seems as if they genuinely believe that they have been appointed by God to rule over all Gentiles!”
This is not true. We have to no intention or desire to rule over the gentiles at all. The Rambam writes: “The Sages and Prophets didn’t long for the days of Mashiach in order to rule over the world, nor to oppress the gentiles, nor to have them raise us on high,” (Laws of Kings and Their Wars, 12:4).
We don’t want to rule over the goyim. We are to be their teachers, that’s all. Just as we have been throughout the history of mankind, gradually weaning them away from their barbarous, idolatrous ways.
Outside of the United Nations building in New York, there is a wall, upon which is written one of our Prophet Isaiah’s most famous sayings:
“And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore,” (Isaiah, 2:4).
Typically, not wanting to give Israel any credit, the United Nations neglected to include the immediately preceding verses of the Prophet which explain how this idyllic end-of-days scenario is to come about:
“And it shall come to pass in the end of days, that the mountain of the Lord’s House shall be established on top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, and all the goyim shall flow unto it…”
This means that the Muslim abomination on top of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem will be razed, and the nations of the world will flock to Jerusalem to pray at the rebuilt Holy Temple of the Jews.
“And a multitude of peoples shall go and say: ‘Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of the God of Yaacov, and he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths,’ for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
We don’t want to rule over the goyim. We simply want to teach them the real way to serve the One and Only God of Israel, that’s all.Tzvi Fishman
