Edom ramps up arming Ishmael with advanced missiles. The alleged threat is Iran/terrorists, but what’s the target after Iran falls?
Of course, according to our Sages – Israel.
But there is something we can do to mitigate this. . .
In parshat Vayechi, we learn that when Yosef and his brothers went up to E”Y to bury Yaakov, the princes of Ishmael came to do battle. But once they saw Yosef’s crown hanging from the funeral bier, they all circled it with their own crowns, and let the caravan pass freely. (Rashi, Vayechi 50:10).
It is known that the Crown of Yosef was his brit milah, which he “guarded” in holiness and purity in the face of the massively sensual and erotic temptations of Egypt.
The b’nei Yishmael also have a brit milah, which underlies their spiritual claim (and current physical foothold) to E’Y. But when they saw the unblemished Crown of Yosef, i.e., his guarded brit milah, which far outshone their “crowns”, the b’nei Ishmael were forced to admit Yaakov’s and his sons’ rights to E”Y.
So too, today – if the Jewish men Guard their Brit properly, Yishmael will be forced, spritually and thus physically, to recognize our right to E’Y. The Torah teaches this very clearly.
For sure, this is not easy, but it must be done. Now that we are in the Shovavim period, HaShem should give us strength to do a complete tshuva in this area.
For starters, the very best first thing a person can do in the path to tshuva is download and install the K-9 filter to their computer and have a trusted friend (or spouse) set it up with the password – doing so is a tremendous merit for k’lal Yisrael.
