Subsuming the Rambam halachot under the authority of the 5th Mishna of בבא מציעא

Religious observance of ritual halachot stands diametrically opposed to Halachot – understood by Tannaim and Amoraim as rabbinic middot.  The kabbala of Rabbi Akiva teaches פרדס – the understanding of Torah Sh’Baal Peh.  דרוש of פרדס – the דאורייתא middot expressed through a systematic logic format.  All logic systems stand on the יסוד of Order.  As observance of ritual halachot stands diametrically opposed to rabbinic middot, so too logic stands diametrically opposed to anarchy and chaos.

The second p’suk of בראשית: והארץ היתה תהו ובהו, וחשך על פני תהום, roughly interpreted as “Dark times prevailed, Civil War and chaos triumphed in strength and ascendancy”.  Once the Torah narrative turns to the subject of MAN: interpreted as meaning: the relationship between nation states/Goyim. Torah immediately addresses this issue; the term האדם, inclusive of all nations of mankind.  The term גוי, means nation.  The specific nouns of קין והבל/Cain and Abel, these nouns serve as a metaphor which refers to international conflicts among nation states.

What causes War to explode?  Answer:  Civil War chaos anarchy.  The chaos and anarchy which the Rambam code produced, perhaps compares to Hitler’s decision to invade Poland. Did anarchy and chaos define Polish politics prior to the Nazi invasion of Poland?  Deep divisions disrupted Polish political independence all through the Post War partition which resulted in the re-emergence of Poland from some 130 years of foreign rule.  Polish political independence lasted from 1921 to 1939.  The three major dynastic empires of Eastern Europe, Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary, as a result of their own internal chaos and anarchy, all three shrunk the sovereignty of their empires.  All these nation states lost the first World War.

From day one, the Polish, and to a much smaller degree, the new Czech problem, dominated post War European politics.  The far larger issue of Poland dominated European international debates for over two centuries.  All major European peace conferences, from the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to the Yalta Conference and the Potsdam Conference in 1945, all debated the “Polish cause” likewise called the “Polish question”.  Hitler greatly erred when he confused the international priority of importance as equal, the Czech and Polish territorial divisions.  The Allied victors of WWI, would never validate the Soviet partition of Poland, at least not till Russian troops virtually defeated the Armies of Germany, single handed, at Stalingrad.

Poland’s erasure from Europe became a key to maintaining the European balance of power in the 19th Century.  Napoleon justified wars with Austria-Hungary, Germany, and Russia using Poland as a pretext.  The Polish-Russian war of 1830-1, and the 1848 revolutions which burned across Europe, made the Polish issue a top priority. The 1863 January Uprising, the longest lasting insurgency in post-partition Poland, the leaders of that revolt, modeled their political goals and aspirations after the Italian War of 1859, which played a crucial role in the process of Italian Unification.  But Tsar Alexander II pulled the rug out from under the feet of the Polish nobility – who longed for a return to a semi-autonomous status. The 1864 decision by Tsar Alexander II to terminate Russia’s feudal economy, and abolish serfdom of the Russian peasants. This key decision planted the seeds for the Kerensky Provisional Government, which replaced the 500 year rule of Czarist autocracy in 1917. But an immediate consequence of this decree, its effectively terminated the January Uprising.

For Prussia, the Polish question, always exerted a first priority fundamental issue.  Prussia’s continued existence hinged upon the erasure of the Polish state.   Piotr S. Wandycz, author of: The Polish Question, in chapter 13, wrote:  “Throughout the nineteenth century the Poles were to follow again and again the advice given to them by Jean-Jacques Rousseau in his Considerations sur le gouvernement de Pologne: If you cannot prevent being devoured, you must make sure that you will not be digested. The Poles rose up in insurrection in 1794, 1806, 1830, 1846, 1848, and 1863. Most of these uprisings had international repercussions. Indeed, the great powers found themselves repeatedly confronted with the Polish question, and although at times they tried to ignore it, at others they were forced to seek at least a partial solution.”

The supporters of the National Democrats vs. Pilsudski radicals, each side harbored particularly antagonistic and opposing viewpoints, even before the establishment of Poland as an Independent nation state.  The Polish-Soviet war of 1920 brought the two Parties into a head to head clash.  The bitter dispute between the National Democrats and the Pilsudski faction affected all aspects of Polish politics.  This conflict resulted in a stalemate which stymied the efforts to write a Constitution for the new State; it also directly impacted who controlled the army.

In 1921 the Poles finally drew up a liberal Constitution which favored democracy; meaning a dominant Lower House (the Sejm), at the expense of a weak Upper House and Presidency.  That Constitution compares to the weak Central Government which the Articles of Confederation established after America won its National Independence from Britain.  Both provoked a Constitutional crisis, a far reaching fragmentation of society.  This “political fissiparation”, made it virtually impossible to impose a stable and lasting Central government.  From November 1918 to Pilsudski’s coup in May 1926, there arose 14 different regimes!

President Truman placed a sign upon his desk: “The Buck Stops Here”.  Polish leaders never accepted the yoke, their responsibility to govern Poland.  The new country had a multinational character: Germans, Jews, Ukrainians, and Belarussians made up a third of the population, and all parties hated and despised each other.  The collapse of Russia, Germany, and Austria permitted the rise of Poland as an Independent Nation state.  But, just as important, no Polish leader inspired the people of Poland to establish their own national Independence!

Post WW I Poland compared to Russia after its Red-White Civil War.  By 1920, 55 percent of the bridges, 63 per cent of the railway stations, 48 percent of the locomotives and 18 percent of the buildings in the country, as a primary consequence of War  – suffered destruction.  Inflation destroyed Polish currency, like as happened to the German mark.  Whereas in December 1918 the exchange rate for the Polish mark, about 9.8 to the dollar; toward the end of 1922 it had reached 17,808. In 1923 the inflation assumed gigantic proportions, one dollar worth about 2,300,000 marks.

The death of Józef Klemens Piłsudski, combined with the economic disaster of the Great Depression placed the political stability of Poland upon very shaky legs.  “The Marshal”, following his demise, no successors arose who could fill his political shoes.  In 1939 anarchy defined Polish politics.  Which made Poland ripe for foreign invasion.  Hence this brief history of Poland answers the question:  what causes War to explode?

This significant and important question likewise explains the horrible consequences of the Rambam Civil War, and the huge Jewish population transfer from Western to Eastern Europe.  The Rambam code of halacha changed the definition of Halacha away from rabbinic middot which give concrete definition to the abstract concepts of mercy – expressed through the דאורייתא 13 tohor middot revealed at Horev; the Rambam code modified halacha to that of a religious ritual observance comparable to Catholic dogmatism.  Halacha ceased to define the k’vanna of a given Mishna.  Mishnayot discontinued to define a specific middah דאורייתא affixed to one of the 13 middle blessings within the Shemone Esrei. 

Jews today often da’aven in minyan factories – where they quickly rattled off rote memorized prayers.  In short, the Rambam code of ritual laws radically changed the body politics of g’lut Yiddishkeit.   Observant Jewry simply went through the motions of keeping the Torah.  Therein causing Torah curses, comparable to the plagues which destroyed Egypt. Jews had no clue how to observe mitzvot לשמה, any more than Par’o grasped the need to obey HaShem.  This explanation attempts to explain why HaShem permitted the Shoah, the systematic destruction of European Jewry.   Post the Rambam Civil War, rabbinic Judaism strategically failed to lead and govern g’lut Jewry, comparable to the chaos and anarchy which prevailed in Poland prior to the Nazi invasion.

Post Shoah, with the political independence of the Jewish State, this generation once again stands at a cross-junction opportunity.  Either we behave like the Arabs, and never miss an opportunity – to miss an opportunity … or we establish the Torah as the Written Constitution of the bnai brit Cohen Republic; we stamp our Court legal system of justice with the Talmudic model of lateral Common Law Sanhedrin courtrooms – with an eye on the prophetic mussar prize: Justice Justice pursue.

It’s simply not enough to despise the European “inferior races“ – defined as “crude sub-human barbarians” – who filled the world with violence, oppression, and injustice.  No.   Upon our shoulders rests the yoke\the burden to compose a symphony of righteous just justice.  Achieved through lateral Sanhedrin like common law courtrooms.  Only when the government of Israel rules the oath sworn lands of Canaan, when righteous diplomatic justice prevails, which adjudicates disputes between bnai brit and bnai brit, within the Cohen Republic – then and only then can Jews look Europeans square into their dilated eyes – and rejoice in our revenge over their vile and despicable wickedness.  Then and only then can Israelis compare European cultures and customs to our void Minyan factories of Torah of observant Jewry, who base halacha upon the Yad Chazaka, the Arba’ah Turim, and the Shulchan Aruch.  Based upon the כלל: Jews – we’re just like Goyim, only more so.

Upon this generation now rests the burden of the kingdom of heaven – to pass an eternal inheritance unto all our future born generations a fundamental memory. Not upon our righteousness did HaShem bring Israel out of g’lut, but rather the wickedness of the Goyim.  HaShem judged the Gods whom the Goyim worship & Jews won our 1948 Independence War.  HaShem again judged the Gods whom the Goyim worship & Jews won our 1967 second Independence war. 

The imperialist European barbarian States demand that Jews first surrender the victory of our 1967 Independence War as a down payment for Jews to later surrender the victory of our 1948 Independence War.  Only when Jews roam the earth once more as stateless refugees, who have no nation of our own, only then shall the exile of Europe, who waits for the 2nd Coming of Jesus son of Zeus, come to an end.

For over 2000 years, Jews lived as stateless refugee people who had no rights.  Now Europeans wear the shoe of g’lut.  Third World Europe has no say, no voice, no opinion, in all matters and disputes which pits Israel opposed by our Arab and Muslim neighbors.  HaShem brings rain in its due season.  This blessing, Israel must strive to include the dry parched lands of both the Negev and Sahara deserts.  Climate change rains can transform these waste lands into flourishing crop producing heartlands.  With the fall of rain, Israel hopes to build a great North African trade route, which brings dignity, prosperity and wealth to all nations of the Middle East and North Africa.

מציאת חירש שוטה וקטן–יש בה גזל, מפני דרכי שלום.  לפיכך אם עבר אחר וגזלה מידן, אינה יוצאה בדיינים; ואם כפר בה ונשבע, אינו חייב בחומש. מציאת בנו ובתו הסמוכים על שולחנו, אף על פי שהן גדולים, ומציאת בתו הנערה, אף על פי שאינה סומכת על שולחנו ואפילו הייתה מכורה אמה, ומציאת עבדו ושפחתו הכנעניים, ומציאת אשתו–הרי אלו שלו

  והארבעה שזוכה בהן, כולם מדברי סופרים; ואלו הן–להיות מעשה ידיה שלו, ולהיות מציאתה שלו, ושיהיה אוכל פירות כל נכסיה בחייה, ואם מתה בחייו יירשנה; והוא קודם לכל אדם בירושה.  מציאת האישה ומעשה ידיה, לבעלה.  ומה היא עושה לו, הכול כמנהג המדינה:  מקום שדרכן לארוג אורגת, לרקום רוקמת, לטוות צמר או פשתים טווה.  ואם היה דרך נשי העיר לעשות כל המלאכות האלו, אינו כופה אלא לטוות את הצמר בלבד–שהפשתן מזיק את הפה ואת השפתיים, והטיווי היא המלאכה המיוחדת לנשים:  שנאמר “וכל אישה חכמת לב, בידיה טוו” (שמות לה,כה).  דחקה עצמה ועשתה יותר מן הראוי לה, המותר לבעל.   האישה שהיה לה ספק גירושין, ומת בעלה–אינה ניזונת מנכסיו, שאין מוציאין מיד היורש מספק; אבל בחיי בעלה, יש לה מזונות עד שתתגרש גירושין גמורין

לא ישכור אדם את הפועל, על מנת שילקט בנו אחריו; אבל האריסין והחכורות והמוכר קמתו לחברו לקצור, ילקט בנו אחריו.  ויש לפועל להביא את אשתו ובניו ללקט אחריו, ואפילו שכרו ליטול חצי הקציר או שלישו או רביעו בשכרו

מי שאינו מניח את העניים ללקט, או שהוא מניח את אחד ומונע את אחד, או שסייע את אחד מהן על חברו–הרי זה גוזל את העניים.  ואסור לאדם להרביץ ארי וכיוצא בו בתוך שדהו, כדי שייראו העניים ויברחו

מציאת הפועל לעצמו, אף על פי שאמר לו עשה עימי מלאכה היום, ואין צריך לומר אם אמר לו עדור עימי היום, נכש עימי היום; אבל אם שכרו ללקט מציאות, כגון שחסר הנהר ושכרו ללקט הדגים הנמצאין באגם–הרי מציאתו לבעל הבית, ואפילו מצא כיס מלא דינרין
