I am about to write something you will not hear anywhere else. I know, most Israelis – and most people – do not have the tools to understand this. We built a modern, Western nation in Israel, a nation-state, similar to France, and we lost the mentality (or common sense) that makes it possible to understand ourselves and our enemies.
But ISIS is not waiting. It is fighting us with this mentality, so it is worth our while to learn its language.
Who is to blame for the massacre in France? It is us, the Israelis.
Israel is the forward post of the free world in the face of the Islamic offensive – which is neither nationalist nor territorial. It is a very spiritual battle – if you would like, you may call it religious, but it is much deeper than that. The point at which everything connects – physical and metaphysical, holy and profane, religion, nationalism and territory – is the place chosen by G-d as His dwelling place in this world. According to all religions, that place is the Temple Mount.
This forward post was deposited into our hands 48 years ago, in 1967. We chose to give it to Islam. In other words, we opened the gate for Islam, gave it the power – and now it is conquering the world.
So it is our fault.
That’s all. I will stop here. The massacre in France is not at all enough to open the public’s minds to this truth, which proves itself time and again.
