False Leaders

Rabbainu and Saba revealed, warned, and waged war on the false leaders. These false leaders are not necessarily worthless people, they are often the most knowledgeable and upright of the generation, yet they are completely in opposition to the Will of HY. This can be learned from Shimi Ben Gaira who was the Rebbe (teacher) of Shlomo Hamelech (King Solomon - wisest of all men), our Sages revealed that as long as Shimi was alive King Solomon had fear of HY and didn't sin, only after his rebbe - Shimi, passed away did King Solomon begin to deviate slightly from the proper way. Thus we see that Shimi was an awesome personage. Yet it is Shimi who cursed out King David - rebelling against the anointed Chosen of G-d! and King David on his deathbed ordered King Solomon to bring about the death of Shimi.

It is thus important for us simple people to learn to differentiate and compartmentalize - to respect the knowledge and fear of G-d apparent in some leading Rabbis, and at the same time to have completely no regard of their "political" opinions and stance, to have lucic understanding of great clarity, that these rabbis, as long as they are promoting their titles and positions without full abnegation to the holy Petek of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman are mamash like Korach and Shimi, who were very G-d fearing and knowledgeable but openly campaigned against the Will of HY! may H"Y save us from this.
