Shabbat Nachamu 5776: Who Needs Hasbarah?

15 Menachem Av 5776
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashah Va'etchanan

If we would just submit to the will of HKB"H and obey His instructions, we would have no need to keep trying to explain ourselves to the world.

Moshe Rabeinu is speaking to Klal Yisrael

"...See, I have imparted to you laws and rules, as the LORD my God has commanded me, for you to abide by in the land that you are about to enter and occupy. Observe them faithfully, for that will be proof of your wisdom and discernment to other peoples, who on hearing of all these laws will say, “Surely, that great nation is a wise and discerning people.”

"For what great nation is there that has a god so close at hand as is the LORD our God whenever we call upon Him? Or what great nation has laws and rules as perfect as all this Teaching that I set before you this day?" (Devarim 3.5-8)

  1. Right. "Hasbara" is a Ghetto Jewish Wimp Word which means, to "explain". The more the Jewish and Israeli sheep "explain" to the Gentile wolves, the more the wolves want to GOBBLE UP the sheep. So clearly "explaining" ain't working. We need not "explain" anything to the Nations. We need to COMMAND them. To what. To believe in God, honor and observe His Noahide Covenant and Laws, and honor His Land, Torah and People Covenants with His Chosen People Israel. And they must do this NOW. Time's up. "And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to JUDGE the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord's". וְעָלוּ מוֹשִׁעִים בְּהַר צִיּוֹן, לִשְׁפֹּט אֶת-הַר עֵשָׂו; וְהָיְתָה לַיהוָה, הַמְּלוּכָה. http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt1601.htm (p.s. wouldn't hurt if we set a GOOD EXAMPLE by observing His Commandments OURSELVES while we're at it). Either way, time's up. For Them. And for Us.

  2. This is spot on. I work for a prominent Hasbarah org. and I can't wait for an alternative. The way they use Israel like a 'Save the Whales' is despicable.
