    Some know. Some don't. It doesn't matter where you go. You can think you jumped religions. You can think you escaped being Jewish or Israeli. But there is a Metaphysical Element that you cannot escape. God formed this bond with the Jewish People eons ago that cannot ever be broken. If you think you have never experienced it, I don't know what to tell you. There is a living energy. Call it a Nefesh or Spirit if you want, but it is definitely alive. If you are Jewish it will find you and bring you back one way or another. It isn't human and it has a mind of it's own. It's stronger than anything humans can create. Numbers have nothing to do with it. You can say, "There are 300,000,000 Muslims. They will do this or that to Jews or Israel." One Jew is stronger than 300,000,000 Million Muslims. One Jew is stronger than a Billion Muslims because of this Spirit. Numbers have nothing to do with it. It is not something human. It can never be defeated. It's stronger than anything else and it cannot be destroyed or torn asunder. I don't even understand it except for perhaps a smidgen and that may be an overstatement. I don't even know why it likes us. Some of us are so unworthy. But it doesn't matter to it. We belong to it and it can rein us in anytime it wants. One way or another. An amazing thing that will outlive any of us living. It will continue to work until it is finished. When that is, I don't know. You just feel or sense it and watch what it does. That's all you can do sometimes.
