Parshas Bolok -curse


When Balak asked Bilam to curse the Bnei Yisrael, he said ארה לי , "curse me*".

Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R.Shlomo.Miller shlita said,

In Parshas Lech Lecha, Hashem said," ואברכה מברכיך ומקללך אאר I will bless those who bless you  and those who curse you I will curse".

Balak knew of this yet he insisted on having the Bnei Yisrael cursed. even though as a result of this, Balak himself will be cursed.

The שונאי ישראל attempt to harm the Yidden even when they themselves know they will lose out by doing so. The Nazis ym"s at the end of the war, instead of using their  trains for their war effort and save their own military,used the trains to transport the Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz.
The Brisker Rav Zt"l said that in Hallel we say סבוני כדבורים דועכו כאש קוצים when a bee stings it dies - so too the שונאי ישראל  attack us even though they will die as a result of it.

Even though Bilam blessed the Bnei Yisroel,(
ואברכה מברכיך) he wasn't entitled to be blessed because it wasn't him who blessed the Bnei Yisroel It was Hashems Brocho coming out from Bilam's mouth.אמבצי
