Boycotting the Boycotters

לחרים את המחרימים

Isaac in Gerar
יצחק ברר
Beraishit 26.14  בראשית

14.’And he had flocks, and herds of cattle, and much work; and the Philistines envied him-וַיְהִי לוֹ מִקְנֵה צֹאן וּמִקְנֵה בָקָר וַעֲבֻדָּה רַבָּה וַיְקַנְאוּ אֹתוֹ פְּלִשְׁתִּים (3850+11 words=3861=18 counting final Nun and Mem as 700 and 600).

Rashi comments that Isaac had many types of work- עֲבֻדָּה רַבָּהwhich made him wealthy.

Much work
עֲבֻדָּה רַבָּה

Flocks and herds of cattle and a much work
מִקְנֵה צֹאן וּמִקְנֵה בָקָר וַעֲבֻדָּה רַבָּה
These words can be understood as:

Jealousy of flocks and jealousy of cattle and much work!

The events detailed in the above three verses has been constantly repeated throughout history up until the present day. Jews have become successful and prosperous through the blessings of Hashem in the countries of their exile following which the nations in whose country they dwell become envious and persecute them which in turn leads to the downfall of that nation. Today is no different. The Philistines and indeed the rest of the world are jealous and envious of the modern-day “start up miracle nation” called “Israel” a Garden of Paradise in the Desert Sand. 

Those jealous anti-Semites and self-hating Jews living in Israel and in the Diaspora  (Erev Rav) who support the "palestinian" usurpers of the land of the Jewish People and support placing boycotts on Israel will be cursed and will fall as Hashem told Abraham (Beraishit 12.3):

3.’And I will bless those that will bless you, and he who curses you I will curse-וַאֲבָרְכָה מְבָרְכֶיךָ וּמְקַלֶּלְךָ אָאֹר(954=18); and through you shall all the families of the earth be blessed-וְנִבְרְכוּ בְךָ כֹּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה(1719=18 counting final Kaf as 500).

Boycott against Israel
חֶרֶם נגד ישראל

It just so happens that the word "Boycott"-חֶרֶם   ("Cherem") has the identical gematria of the name "Abraham"-   אַבְרָהָם

248=14=8 or 808+1 word=17=8

248 or 808
+1 word=17=8

From here we learn that the root of the boycotts against Israel is anti-Semitism!
