Its many sunrises and sunsets testify to its relationship with the Most High G-d who still however maintains an everlasting covenant with the Jewish people and now the reborn State of Israel. Israel is far from perfect but it has done very well considering all the constant cracking pressures brought to bear upon it from every direction and in every conceivable manner by its lifelong enemies. Imagine what all the good people of Israel truly seeking peace for their families and their neighbors could accomplish and assist others with if they were left alone and respected. It pleased the Jews to return to their ancient neglected homeland to build and not Alaska or Africa or any other proposed venue for a Jewish State. It also pleased you to build your home outside of the original mound of Tel Aviv as Israel expanded. Now with all that's going on 65 years later Israel may appear to be "doing as it pleases" to you but it's actually resisting its enemies from doing as they please to the Jewish State, and that includes confiscating your home in Tel Aviv too!
