Esau Hates Jacob

Beraishit 27.27- בראשית
Beraishit 33.4-בראשית

As the war of Gog and Magog  enters its final stages these words of Torah should be pondered very seriously. Edom will turn its back on Israel. This is being witnessed before our very eyes as several European nations have already voted in their Parliaments to recognize a  Palestinian State and the United States of America is no longer the ally of Israel-demanding that she she commit suicide in order to appease the Arab World in the light of the fight against the "Islamic State". What hypocrisy!

We have been sent John Kerry as we have acted in "Kerry"-  קרי!

  Sexual perversion and disdain of the Will of Hashem and we have abandoned His Torah.

It is that simple.


26.’And his father Isaac said to him 'Come near please, and kiss me, my son- וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו יִצְחָק אָבִיו גְּשָׁה נָּא וּשְׁקָה לִּי בְּנִי (1403=8).

The gematria of the words "And his father Isaac said to him 'Come near please- וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו יִצְחָק אָבִיו גְּשָׁה נָּא is 890=17=8.

The gematria of the words “come near please and kiss me my son”-גְּשָׁה נָּא וּשְׁקָה לִּי בְּנִי is 872 = 17=8.

When Jacob meets Esau on his return from the House of Lavan he bows down seven times. The seven bows correspond to the seven blessings that Jacob received in place of Esau. Esau thus attempts to take revenge for this kiss that Isaac give Jacob and kill Jacob by a "kiss" on his neck (Beraishit 33.4). Jacob's neck turned to marble (Beraishit Rabbah 78.8). Jacob had been protected by his father by the kiss on this night.

In Parshat Vayishlach I write:
4.’And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell upon his neck, and kissed him, and they wept-וַיָּרָץ עֵשָׂו לִקְרָאתוֹ וַיְחַבְּקֵהוּ וַיִּפֹּל עַל צַוָּארָו וַ֗יִּ֗שָּׁ֗קֵ֗ה֗ו֗ וַיִּבְכּוּ (2556=18).
Rashi comments here that Esau’s mercy poured forth when he saw Jacob bowing seven bows (Beraishit Rabbah 78.8). 
Rashi adds that the six dots above the letters of the word “and he kissed him”- וַ֗יִּ֗שָּׁ֗קֵ֗ה֗ו֗ are a matter of disagreement amongst the Sages. The matter is discussed in Sifrei (Beha'alotcha 69 to B’Midbar 9.10). Some say that the dots mean that he did not kiss him with all his heart. 

The Holy Tanna and author of the Zohar, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai expounded:

It is a known Law [Given to Moses at Sinai] that Esau hates Jacob
הלכה היא בידוע שעשו שונא ליעקב
Esau hates Jacob
עשו שונא ליעקב
According to some the dots above the letters teach us that at that time his mercy was aroused and he kissed him (uncharacteristically) with all his heart. Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai disagrees with this opinion.
The seven times that Jacob bows down to Esau when he meets him correspond to the seven blessings that Isaac gave him. Thus Jacob was hinting to Esau I received all this wealth as a result of the seven blessings that our father gave me instead of you. Thus Esau attempts to kill him with kiss. This is the meaning of the dots above the word "and he kissed him"-וַ֗יִּ֗שָּׁ֗קֵ֗ה֗ו֗.
I follow the opinion of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai as proven by the Code of Hai:

Esau hates Jacob
עשו שונא ליעקב


And there is nothing new under the sun

אֵין כָּל חָדָשׁ תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ


2532+5 words=17=8  (Nun 700)


Jews living in the Diaspora must ascend to the Land of Israel without delay  before it is too late and return in Repentance to Hashem

 יהודים אשר חיים בגולה חייבים לעלות לארץ ישראל במידי לפני זה מאוחר מידי ולחזור בתשובה לאבינו בשמים
