Jealousy

Jealousy, as the Biblical tale of Cain and Abel reminds us, stands out as the most destructive emotion, leading to the first murder in human history. This emotion poses a significant threat to society when socioeconomic gaps are widening. People hate the fact that others do far better than them. Adopting the victim narrative appears easier than working harder towards one’s goals. Both Enablers and Villains share this common ground of resentment when measuring their success against others.

In this context, Israel becomes like a red rug to the Bulls – a small, assertive and flourishing nation with very strong economy and army. The question arises: How can Israel be so prosperous without some form of exploitation, occupation, colonization etc? This line of thinking stems from the same jealousy that led to the first murder in history.
