    The Wiesel family, of religious and even Hasidic stock, stayed in Hungary rather than try to return to Zion and help build i,t, not following the vision of another Hungarian Jew, Theodor Herzl.. It didn't matter to them that Zion is mentioned so many hundreds of time in the Bible, they preferred the Hungarian reality. Of course, I don't blame Elie Wiesel for this; he was not old enough to make such a decision. But then came the Holocaust, and the Nazis shipped Elie out of his town to Auschwitz. That reality was not comfortable at all. Miraculously, Elie survived the ordeal. so where did he go then? Not to Zion, but settled in France. Let us say that he needed some time to recover. But in 1955, 10 years after the War, Elie was ready to move on, so he went to the.. US and settled there for good even though that country is not mentioned even ONCE in the Bible. Elie, you know exactly the difference between dream and reality. The dream could be fantastic but YOU followed reality and not the dream. Aren't you ashamed of yourself? For the sake of your dream you are willing to deny others (the Jerusalem Arabs) their reality, as long as nothing interferes with your own comfortable reality.
