The T.A.U. professor has it wrong again. It is not merely a right versus left division nor the secular versus the religiously enclined,nor the liberal versus the dogmatic, it is an intellectual game theory which transcends entrenched camps and beliefs. So you'll find a "fatwa" by the famous "Hazon-Ish" that securing help to arab natives in the form of jobs may in some instances precede "Avodah-Ivrit" as a charitable precept. The question is not even if jews have historic rights (they do!) to their homeland, even not whether the arab souk in Hebron was built on the ruins of the jewish quarter there, but it amounts to a basic question, can we survivors of the holocauste take a chance of surrendering land from which a salvo of katyushas may rain upon our major cities and practically close our international airport?! The answer to that question in the eyes of the respected professor is yes! -but to the overwhelming majority of the citizens of Israel the answer is NO!!
