It took the US Administration three years to tailor the detailed Trump’s Middle East peace plan. The so-called “Deal of the Century” was finally announced, aiming to offer a solution to the long-lasting Israeli-Palestinian conflict through all kind of deals, including a meaningful influx of financial assistance for its implementation. However, it cannot calm animosity between nations because money cannot control emotions or tilt hearts from hatred to love.
What has happened in Israel for generations does not depend on Trump. Its roots run deeper. The polarization between the two nations, Jewish and Palestinian, stems from the depths of creation and is embodied by Abraham’s two sons: Isaac and Ishmael. These cousins hated each other because they came from two different mothers, so there is no innate compromise, natural fulfillment, or inherent affinity, despite being close relatives.
The seminal book in Kabbalah, The Zohar, designates the three major religions–Judaism, Christianity and Islam–as three lines. Islam is called the “right line,” Christianity the “left line,” and Israel (or Jacob) the “middle line.” According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the right line represents the attribute of giving, bestowal; the left line represents reception; and the middle line’s role is to connect and balance the other two. Each of the lines singly is a destructive force because it inherently works only for its own good. But in the correct relationship between them, integrity, progress and development occur, leading to the attainment of equilibrium.
The Zohar describes the process of connection that these lines go through, the planned moves from the beginning of creation to its end, where all three streams will reach the long-awaited peace. The Zohar discusses the difficult battles that will take place between the right and the left lines, between Christianity and Islam, until they reach balance and connect as one with the supreme power, the Creator. So even though Trump’s intentions to find a solution might be positive, reaching peace between all religious streams is not up to him. It depends on the people of Israel.
As the middle line, only Israel has the ability to connect both other lines to the supreme power. Why Israel? It is because Israel is the source of Christianity and Islam, right and left. Israel, from the Hebrew Yashar–Kel (direct to the Creator) is the connector. Its request and longing for the Creator’s help, a prayer for a higher connection between the opposing forces, will bring peace to heaven and earth. As it is written, “He who creates peace in his celestial heights, may He in his mercy create peace for us and all of Israel.”
Therefore, peace will not be attained through agreements and documents. However, if President Trump wants to speed up the peace process, he can certainly do so by acknowledging the in-depth teachings of the wisdom of Kabbalah that point the way to peace and balance in the world, and by making sure that this method of connection reaches the public. By such an unprecedented step, President Trump would do a huge service to the entire world, and not just to the two nations of the Middle East. Trump is a remarkable utilizer of the media, if he will only use that talent to spread the message about how to achieve balance between the forces in nature and thereby turn all hearts from hatred to love, this would propel humanity to a significantly new level. This would be the deal of the century.
