If you have been following Israeli politics recently, you probably already know what is happening in this country.
Never in the history of the Jewish State have we seen the streets of Israeli cities crowded with people protesting against the government.
According to various estimates, at least 600,000 people took to the streets. The protest is against the Netanyahu government’s judicial reform drafted last January. This reform would assign a great deal of power to the executive branch. The Israeli government would be able to appoint many judges, and it would be able to override the sentences of the Israeli Supreme Court.
The executive branch will be able to control and “correct” the judicial branch when the latter does not conform to the policy dictated by the government.
This reform would assign unprecedented power to the current ruling party, the Likud.
The latest news about the judicial reform is that the Israeli government postponed its final approval after the next Jewish Passover, which will fall in the first decade of April.
However, to better understand why this conflict erupted, we should try to understand the different identities that compose the complex Jewish State.
The Likud party is the party of the ruling government coalition headed by Netanyahu. It was founded in 1973 by Menachem Begin and Ariel Sharon, two of the most important figures in early Israeli history.
Begin’s doctrine was that Israel could recur to pre-emptive attacks against the countries that Israel itself considers potential “threats”.
The idea of the Likud is that the expansion of the Jewish settlement represents a sort of “right” for Israel.
In this idea, Israel’s interests come before everything else. There is no right for an eventual Palestinian State to exist. The borders of Israel’s neighbors can trespass, and their lands annexed to fulfill the Zionist expansion plan.
The Likud’s relationship with Chabad Lubavitch
However, the Likud party has not only a political vision but also a spiritual one. It has a deep tie with the Jewish sect of the Chabad Lubavitch, founded in 1775 by Shneur Zalman Borukhovich.
If we write the name of this organization in Google and if we try to seek some images, we will see that its members were in the White House many times.
Several presidents hosted them, and if we carefully look at the pictures, we see that the Chabad members surround the desk of the President in quite an intimidating way, like they are reminding him who is giving the orders and who is receiving them.

Another example of their influence comes from Italy. Italy’s PM, Giorgia Meloni, participated in the annual Chanukah ceremony organized by the Chabad Rome branch.
Chabad Lubavitch incarnates the spirit of Messianic Zionism, and if we look at its website, we have the possibility to comprehend what is the fulfillment of its vision.
In the section dedicated to the Moshiach, we realize that Chabad is awaiting a messianic figure, who is none other than the Jewish Messiah. According to this organization, the Moshiach will be a very charismatic figure. He will bring peace around the world, and rebuild the Temple of Solomon, destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.C.
Under his rule, the world will be “united”, and “all the nations of the world will strive to create a new world order, in which there will be no more wars or conflicts. Jealousy, hatred, greed, and political strife (of the negative kind) will disappear, and all human beings will strive only for goodness, kindness, and peace.”
So we can see Chabad borrows the expression “New World Order” to depict their political and religious beliefs.
The New World Order is a philosophy conceived by Freemasonry in the 18th century. This expression described it as a world where nations cease to exist. Freemasonry aims to put an end to the national states and their traditional identities.
As a result, nations must die in order to allow the NWO to usher in. So we find a totalitarian vision of politics in Freemasonry, which is also quite hostile to Christianity. Although the lodges never state that they seek to remove the Christian religion, this truth is revealed only to the higher rankings of Freemasonry.
Freemasonry is a compartmentalized organization. Those who sit at the bottom have no idea of what is occurring at the top.
Therefore, if Chabad used this expression, we must conclude that its ideas are quite dangerous for mankind and Christianity.
Moreover, this vision seems to be shared by the Likud in a political-religious pact which brings us to the Messianic Zionist principle: A pact that can be traced back to the first 1984 meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu and Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, probably the most influential figure of the Chabad movement.
At that time, Netanyahu was the Israeli ambassador before the United Nations in New York. Rabbi Schneerson asked to meet him to give him some instructions about the speech that Netanyahu would hold before the UN assembly, called by the Rabbi a “house of lies”.
This tie has been strengthening over the years, even after Rabbi Schneerson’s death in 1993. The power of the Chabad has been growing exponentially in the last three decades as well as the influence of Netanyahu in Israeli politics after his first mandate as PM in 1996.
This “special relationship” molded the Israeli policy of the last two decades. Israel’s desire to expand beyond its borders grew as its desire to strike everyone who was considered to be a danger to the ultra-Zionist wing.
The Syria of Assad, whose Israeli neighbor constantly bombs, is an example of this hawkish doctrine.
The other side of the moon: liberal Zionism
However, this messianic vision of Israel clashes with another side of Zionism: the liberal one.
The opposition leader, Yair Lapid, head of the party Yesh Atid, guides the progressive area.
We do not find any trace of spirituality here, although in a negative connotation. Instead, there is pure secularization on this side. This political view is based upon the idea that the State must be completely neutral regarding religious doctrines.
This also explains why the liberal Zionists would like to lift the military exemption granted to the Ultra-Orthodox Jews while Netanyahu would like to keep it.
Liberal Zionism would like to follow the path of the liberal West, which experienced an unprecedented moral decay since it adopted liberalism.
By embracing this political view, the Western world renounced its Christian identity. The 20th century is the century when this replacement process took place. There is no longer spirituality in the West. God was left behind, especially after the Vatican II and the 1968 liberal-Marxist revolution.
Liberalism is the new lay political religion.
After this liberal revolution, the West has never been the same. Liberalism has been ruling every walk of life, and those who tried to remain faithful to the real and ancient traditions were mocked and discriminated against.
Abortion gained constitutional protection in the United States with the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court sentence, and it was legalized in 1978 in Italy, the country that once embodied more the Christian spirit.
The results are before our eyes. First, the West plunged into chaos where relativism rules everything and where man sets his own values leaving God out of the equation. A demographic crisis followed, and several countries risk extinction if they keep following this self-destructive ideology.
However, these two irreconcilable visions of the world perfectly explain the present clash in Israel and why the Messianic Zionists so despise George Soros.
George Soros can be defined as a globalist for a very simple reason. He has been spending the last four decades promoting the idea of his open society, which is exactly the kind of society that was born in the West after secularization.
Soros is not interested in defending the sovereignty of national countries, including Israel. Rather, his “mission” is to deconstruct nations, deprive them of their traditional values, and replace the latter with the melting pot idea. In the melting pot, races and national cultures are destroyed to leave room for liberalism.
The last and only time George Soros traveled to Israel was in 1994, when the PLO, headed by Arafat and the Israeli premier, Yitzhak Rabin, was close to concluding a historic agreement that could bring an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Rabin belonged to the liberal area of Israel. His vision was close to the one of David Ben Gurion. He did not reject the idea of a Palestinian State, and some consider his murder as the result of a plot by the most radical wing of Zionism.
During that period, Soros was greeted by the Israeli authorities, and he held a speech at the Dan Accadia Hotel in Herzliya.
On that occasion, Soros publicly decried nationalism, including the Israeli one. Some people were shocked by his statements and left the hall. Other clapped at his speech, but Soros that night proved once again the authenticity of the tale of the frog and the scorpion.
A scorpion will always sting, no matter if this implies putting himself in danger. On that occasion, Soros did sting. He could not reject his globalist nature. He could not help.
Therefore, the conflict in Israel is none other than the clash between these two different souls of the Jewish world.
On the one hand, we have the nationalistic view of Zionism that wants to assert and expand the power of Israel at any cost. On the other, we have an internationalist view of Liberal Zionism that wants to assert and expand the power of supranational clubs at the cost of sovereign nations.
One, whether or not Christian, should not commit the mistake of siding with one of them or, even worse, consider these sides as representative of the entire Jewish world.
If there is a Jewish soul with which dialogue should be established, this would certainly be the Naturei Karta group.
Naturei Karta considers Zionism an act of direct disobedience against God, and it claims that the task of the Jews is to respect the nations that host them.
This is another serious problem that Zionism created. It drove a wedge between the host nations and the Jews living there. As a result, at the beginning of the last century, Zionism was quite unpopular amongst the Jewish communities.
Jews had no intention of leaving their countries to return to Palestine. They rejected Theodor Herzl’s philosophy to build a national home for the Jews.
Many Jewish communities realized this plan would not protect or make their lives safer. Moreover, they realized that powerful forces were behind this plan, which had not put the Jewish best interests at heart.
It was the power of the Rothschild family that allowed the birth of Israel. It was their power that demanded the British Government guarantee a State for the Jews with the infamous 1917 Balfour declaration.
Ordinary Jews were not part of the scheme. They were asked to leave their countries to give the future Israeli State the population that it needed.
Now we are seeing the consequences of a difficult and problematic cohabitation between these two different souls.
The ultra-Zionist wing wants to march towards the messianic Chabad vision, while the secular Israelis are not interested in fulfilling this “spiritual” mission.
The conflict between the international and the nationalistic sides of Zionism has never been so close to bringing a civil war in Israel.
This is certainly a paradox. The tenants of the house that was built to ensure a “safe” shelter for the Jews are becoming the most dangerous place for them.
It is this contradiction that could lead the Jewish State to the point of self-destruction.
