From the jerusalem Post:
Jerusalem and Hebron, not Tel Aviv and Haifa, were the heart of the biblical Jewish kingdom... the fact that this was our historic homeland is what justifies establishing a modern Jewish state here at all. Otherwise, we are indeed mere foreign interlopers.


This attitude, along with all "god given rights" and religion in general, are the sources of all evil in this world. The only way you can claim a right to all of Eretz Yisrael is by ignoring and trampling the rights of other people. You have your god, they have theirs. Both believe god gave them this land. If you want to go on fighting over the land forever, dying and killing others for the cause, you will not have my support or the support of most Israelis and Jews. Jews don't have to own every inch of the land. The reality is that others own parts of the land. I believe that living in peace with them, and respecting their rights, are greater mitzvot than the fabricated mitzva of owning ALL the land of Israel.
