Seventy Wolves and One Lamb 

The Prime Minister of Malaysia, in his speech before the leaders of the Muslim states, said that the 1.3 billion Muslims in the world need to unite against the Jewish people and the State of Israel. That is, they must continue in the path of the foe from Germany, the worst of Israel’s enemies. 

For that speech, he received the cheers of the leadership of the Muslim world, and Christian rulers agreed with him as well, either verbally or silently 

The Prime Minister of Malaysia is not the first in history who thinks evil of the Jewish people. 

Nimrod already led the world in rebellion against G-d. He was a “mighty trapper” (Genesis 10:9), because he trapped people verbally and incited them to rebel against G-d. He longed to unite all of mankind, and towards that end he and his contemporaries, the Generation of the Dispersion, constructed the Tower of Babel: “They said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top shall reach the sky. Let us make ourselves a name, so that we will not be scattered all over the face of the earth.’” (Genesis 11:4) 

G-d, however, who examines man’s heart and knows his thoughts, knew that their goal was to rebel against Him and to extinguish His light from the world, the light of Abraham, which had begun to shine. G-d therefore punished them by dividing and dispersing them: “G-d said, ‘They are a single people, all having one language.... Now, nothing they plan to do will be unattainable for them! Come, let us descend and confuse their speech, so that one person will not understand another’s speech.’ From that place, G-d scattered them all over the face of the earth.” (Genesis 11:6-8) 

The words of King David in Psalms were fulfilled: “For, lo, Your enemies, O L-rd, for lo, Your enemies shall perish. All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.” (Psalm 92:10) 

The goal of Nimrod and his generation, of extinguishing the light of the world, has never ceased until this very day. From seventy descendents of Noah, seventy wolves have emerged, who for thousands of years have been trying to devour the Jewish people, who are likened to a lamb. 

As King David said: “Why are the nations in an uproar? Why do the peoples mutter in vain? The kings of the earth join ranks; the rulers take counsel together, against the L-rd and against His anointed.” (Psalm 2:1-2) 

And just as their plot has not succeeded until now, it shall not succeed in the future either. Quite the contrary, the day is not far off when G-d’s promise to Israel shall be fulfilled: “Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall smash them like a potter’s vessel.” (Psalm 8:9 

In response to our enemies’ efforts to unite against us, the Jewish people must unite as one man with one heart. We must realize that our fight is a fight of the sons of light against the sons of darkness, and we must achieve great victory. 

By means of our victory over darkness, Isaiah’s vision regarding the end of days will be fulfilled: “The wolf shall lie down with the lamb…. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain. For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the L-rd, as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:6-9) 

Then all of mankind will ralize that the L-rd G-d of Israel is King and has dominion over all.
