The Baal Shem Tov, the founder of the Hassidic movement explained that ‘the world is a mirror’, which means that the defects we see in others are a reflection of our own.
When Moshe sent spies on a reconnaissance mission to Israel, they returned with an evil report about the land of Israel. The Jewish people then accused God of hating them. The commentator Rashi explained that really God loved them but they hated God and projected those feelings onto God.
