Why Are the Arabs Here?

   by Reb Gutman Locks

Why Are the Arabs Here?


     A religious Jew from Brooklyn was visiting Jerusalem a few weeks ago. He davened neitz (sunrise) with us Shabbos at the Kotel. After davening we walked together through the narrow shuk (market street). I was on my way to my apartment here in the Old City, and he was on his way out of the Old City to go to his hotel in the New City. He was disturbed by the Arabs shops. Although they are closed at that hour, still it is clear that that shuk is an arab shuk.

     He asked; "Why does Hashem give these arabs such a strong hold on our Land?"

     I told him, "Because if Jews do not have someone fighting against us, we fight with each other."

     It got to him. He understood what I said.

     The wonderful thing about this is that it actually puts our enemies' throats in our hands. Whenever we want, by simply spreading love of Jews among Jews… any time we want we can have all the arabs leave the Land. All we have to do is stop fighting with each other and share genuine love with our extended family, our fellow Jews. Try it and see what happens.



  1. Dear Reb Gutman, loving our fellow Jew is relatively easy, generally speaking, but what about the ones we speak about when we say "La Minim vela Malshinim al tehi Tikvah"? What about the judges (?) who condemn to prison a soldier who kills a terrorist ready to spill Jewish blood? What about the mayor of the city I live in, who cut the financial support to the Yeshiva where my 16-years old son studies but gives away who knows how much to make a stupid "Adloyadah" parade through the city center? How can I love them? Please help me, I want to be part of the Geulah and help bring Mashiach through the merits of the Jewish Nation, but I cannot solve this riddle...
    Thanks in advance for your time and for sharing H"s wisdom through your wonderful writing.

  2. In the Biblical Book of Joshua, chapter 23,
    verses 12 to 13, G_d reveals that:

    If Jews intermarry with non-Jews,
    then He will NOT help the Jews
    conquer the Land of Israel.

    And even worse, the sin of intermarriage
    will cause the Jews to be driven out
    from the Land of Israel.

    The Biblical Book of Jeremiah,
    end of chapter 17, teaches:

    If the Jewish people observe Shabbat
    then Jerusalem will be ruled by Jews forever
    (verses 24 to 25).

    But if Jews DO NOT observe Shabbat,
    then the Land of Israel [literally, Jerusalem]
    will burn with fire (verse 27, last verse of chapter).


    Why Muslims Hate Jews:


    Rambam Rejected Childless Messiah:


    Rambam Refutes Reform:

  3. R. HaLevy: Think that people take the 'love' all Jews to an extreme. When a Jew does things that harm our people, our Torah and Land, they need to be rebuked and if they don't learn and actually purposely go against H's Laws and cause harm to our fellow Jews and cause disunity to such extremes, then they need to be ousted and not included; in other words, put in cherem. Also, those who side with our enemies have no Jewish souls and are usually Erev Rav. We need to use our common sense too. H' gave us our sechel to be used, because we are not robots.

  4. This is a terrible way of thinking — that a human's purpose for existing somewhere is merely to distract Jews from hating each other. You seriously think there's no healthier way Hashem provided to avoid sinas chinam, than to hate someone else? How can it help us to be an אור לגויים for any of us to think so cynically? What example is that?
