A Light unto the Nations
The above line is a term originated from the prophet Isaiah that is understood to express the universal designation of the Israelites as mentors for spiritual and moral guidance for the entire world.
Given the shenanigans of the coming Israeli government led by joint prime ministers designated, Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir, the State of Israel is projecting to the world its version of spiritual and moral guidance.

It is worth noting that WIX has also made a similar declaration.
The battle lines are being drawn even as I wrote these words.
And then, of course, we have the Boy Wonder, who following his latest outburst would be happy to see mass executions of all those he deems traitors. Will these executions take place in public, maybe at the Western Wall Plaza?
As his father says, he supports free speech. Is that however a two-way street?
