K’vod HaRav,

Isn’t there a statement by חז״ל to the effect that had the non-Jewish world known at the time when the Romans were laying siege to Yerushalaim what they stood to lose if Yerushalaim was destroyed, they all would have come to defend it?



  1. I am not familiar with such a statement. The closest that I can think of is that Chazal teach that if the non-Jews would only understand how beautiful and amazing the world would be if the Jews did not sin, they would place two guards next to each Jew to ensure that we only do Hashem’s Will.

    Best wishes from the Team
