Parashat Re’eh teaches us how to properly conduct the affairs of the nation of Israel in the land of Israel. It warns us against false prophets who preach transgression and weak leaders who make “painful decisions” which are nothing less than gross violations of everything that Torah teaches us, attempting to lead Israel into pacts with foreign cultures and false gods, foisting a Moloch-like death cult upon the righteous people of Israel.
