A Message for Eisav

by Rabbi David Hanania Pinto

"And he said, "If Esau comes to one camp and strikes it down, the remaining camp will escape."
 וַיֹּ֕אמֶר אִם־יָב֥וֹא עֵשָׂ֛ו אֶל־הַמַּֽחֲנֶ֥ה הָאַחַ֖ת וְהִכָּ֑הוּ וְהָיָ֛ה הַמַּֽחֲנֶ֥ה הַנִּשְׁאָ֖ר לִפְלֵיטָֽה  [Vayishlach 32:9]

Take a look at the word in the Torah "והכהו" - ''strikes it down''.   Whether we read it forwards or backwards, it is the same word.

There is a great message here, as is found in the Sefer Da'at Chachamim. Every blow, every wound that the gentiles inflict on Am Yisroel, will eventually rebound and hit them back in the face.

The greatest wounds inflicted on Am Yisroel, and by extension the whole world are inflicted by whom? Not a popular comment but well-known to be true.

Perhaps the greatest living example is a "man" whose name just happens to also be a palindrome. Watch the 60 minutes interview.
Multiple canards "proven."

Where is Esau's head buried? With Whom? Why? [R. Kessin].

Letter play: USA & EU - Esau - can both be found in just those four letters.
