The resumption of political life

The Enlightenment and the Emancipation forced political ideology onto the Jewish people. Except for the Zionists, the bulk of the Jews refused to engage in politics because politics signifies the people and the people's connection to the land and in diaspora there is no connection of the people to the land. 
Vekhippehr admato ammo probably foretells the resumption of the political life of the Jewish people. 
In the void created by this avoidance of politics, the enemies of the Jews transformed Jew-hatred into anti-Semitism. The anti-Semites filled the political void the Jews had opened up.
