ape,” the spirit of evil which so often gets the upper hand inside man, is also summoning us tounity: unity via the path of Babylon.
The path of Babylon
is the path of coercion and of totalitarian ideology, of subduing man’s freewill and subjugating it to some leader, government, or party. The path of Babylon is the path of imperialism and dictatorships: Pharaohs, satraps, Caesars, and Fuehrers.
The path of Jerusalem
is the antithesis of that path. The Jerusalem path is the path of Divinewisdom and Divine love. It is the path of man’s free-will attainment of God’s truths, of manfinding unity with other people and other nations by his own volition, based on those truths.Jerusalem –
in Hebrew – means, “He shall demonstrate completeness.” Thenations shall participate in Jerusalem’s completeness and unity by entering into it through itsvarious gates, i.e., by each preserving its own culture and uniqueness, and not throughcoercion into unity by military formation, to the tune of a battle march.Both the joy and the trepidation of our times consist in the fact that Jerusalem’s victory,awaited by the entire human race, is already close at hand. The best evidence of this is thesharp increase in the frequency of Babylon’s attacks on man’s free spirit.Whereas a century or more used to pass between successive manifestations of the globe-conquering varieties of totalitarianism, we have now witnessed in the last hundred years alonethree colossal attacks by Babylon: Fascism, Communism, and now – Islamism.For the third time this century, the world is reeling from a ghastly confrontation of good andevil. We live on the eve of enormous Messianic changes in history. The closer we come toGod, the more intense Satan’s resistance becomes. The “birth pangs of the Messiah” arebecoming more and more frequent.For the third time this century, the Adversary has harnessed the Pharaonic chariots of totalitarian ideology, hoping to deprive humankind of its spiritual freedom. First it was a redchariot – Communism; next, it was brown – Nazism; and now, green – Islam. But in everyinstance the chariot’s driving force is one and the same – the lie of having attained unity (for the essence of the Master Dissembler is not in eliminating the Divine objective, but inperverting it) via the Anti-God, by speedily and massively excising everything “superfluous”through straightforward means,
:> Dividing the entire world into proletariat and bourgeois, in order to destroy all of thebourgeois, and give victory to the proletariat;> Dividing the entire world into Aryans and Untermenschen, to destroy the latter and create theEternal Reich;> Destroying all infidels, or converting them to Islam, in order to create the Universal
.These divisions were first based on class, later on race, and now – on religion.We should note that not only has the frequency of these satanic attempts increased, but theyhave also grown in magnitude. No country can afford to remain on the sidelines any longer.
