Anubhav, sorry to disappoint you.

Reader comment on item: [Naveed Haq and] "Sudden Jihad Syndrome" in Seattle
in response to reader comment: to Moshe

Anubhav, I must say that I really do appreciate the hopes you are having with regard to saving the World by the Jewish People. It is indeed flattering, but I am afraid that at this point I must disappoint you.

As you obviously are aware of, God has chosen the Jewish People to convey His Message to the World through the Bible and the Jewish Prophets. But you must have noticed as well that God's clearly and explicitly revealed intention is to have Mankind follow His Will voluntarily, i.e. from a true conviction that there is a God Who rules this world, and Who's teachings must be observed. This is THE CHALENGE for the World to accomplish.

At this point in the history of Mankind, the Jewish People can offer to the World not much more than it did in the past: Providing an example for Will of Survival and of inspiration how to confront and fight Evil.
