    The title of your article is appropriate. This is certainly not the Eden that was promised to be present in the land once the Israelites returned home. What is WRONG with this picture? It is said that Yerusalem is the Mother of us all, but we know that Yerusalem is the People, the descendants of Yacob. Do you recall the two Mothers who were brought before Solomon because they disputed over an infant? How did Solomon make the right determination of who the babe belonged to? He said to DIVIDE the child, to split it in half and give one half to the real Mother and the other half to the impostor! And yet he did this because he KNEW the REAL Mother would give the child away instead of seeing it harmed, which she did in fact do. Today, the land has been divided amongst TWO who claim it as their own. They have BOTH shed blood into the land, and have laid it desolate and have ruined it, and yet the REAL owners remain in exile, for the sake of NOT desolating the land and bringing it to ruin. We wait patiently and lovingly, the Mother of us all is STILL in exile. What you have done to our land... You have ruined it. How can a Mother desolate what she loves and truly belongs to her? She can only if she is not the REAL Mother.....
