Portion Non Portion Sukot ... Israel Sacrifices for the World

Portion Non Portion Sukot ... Israel Sacrifices for the World
70 offerings were brought in the Jerusalem Holy Temple on the Sukkot Festival for the round figure
of "70 Nations" not including Israel
We read about that from the Torah and not just one of the regular portions this shabbat.
So who in the world really gets it? 
I mean - lookit (like they say in Boston) 
How much universalism is built into Jewish Traditionalism - but 
the Jews and the gentiles DON'T WANT TO ADMIT IT - because they have inbred anger at the Almighty
As Rabbi Carlebach said once after a ride wirh an Arab taxi driver
Yidden (Jews) can only influence the world for good 
when they know they are jews and NOT when they throw away their Jewish identity and mitzvote!
And a world without goodness and kindness and caring and sharing - used to be a pretty bloody place 
(and sometimes still is)
What other people teach
dancing ariu d with a book ...OR a Torah Scroll ...
and who Does That as the Highlight of the High Holiday Season?
and hope the world will get it!
Shabbat Shalom and Happy Sukot and Simchat Torah
