    Dear Cipora,Thanks for reaching your sublime soul.A good start for a trully Holy Cause. You are more than justified in asking so many 'Hows. for as much as reason for others to ask for so many 'Whys'. It is only natural for 'reason' to be conservative and a source of worries, as for the soul to be revolutionary and a source of hope and achievments. Let us start with our worries before we get astray with our souls. Our enemies are today much..much weaker since 1948. The backbone of the threat wether Egypt etc..all of them for their own reasons gave up for the battle and opted for Peace.Those who are seeking the destruction of Israel are today's enemies of the world. That tip the balance to the favour of the country. Of that we all agree. What can sway the country towards Judaism is us and not the world. It is not necessary for us to be 'observant'. Not everyone in all other faith and religion is 'observant'. Jews need not to be an exception. c/2
