    AB.YEHOSHUA (NOT MY FAVOURITE PERSON) HAS PROVED ONE THING.IF HE IS SINCERE,AND I'M SURE HE IS) LIVING IN ISRAEL IS A MITZVAH EQUIVELANT TO ALL THE MITZVOT COMBINED (SEE MY PREVIOS POST).FOR A SECULAR LEFT JEW LIKE A.B. WHO OUTWARDLY HAS NO ZIONISTIC IDEALS TO MAKE THIS STATEMENT PROVES THAT DEEP INSIDE EVERY JEW IS A PROFOUND LONGING TO LIVE IN HIS OWN LAND- ERETZ YISRAEL. FOR THIS I HAVE A DEEP RESPECT FOR A.B.; MORE SO THAN MOST AMERICAN JEWS, BOTH SECULAR AND ESPECIALLY ORTHODOX. DIASPORA JEWS; YOU LIVE IN A GENERATION WHICH AFTER 1871 YEARS,GOD IN HIS MERCY HAS RESTORED JEWISH SOVREIGNTY TO ERETZ YISRAEL. EXILE IS SUPPOSED BE A CRUEL PUNISHMENT, AND TO TREAT IT AS A COMFORT ZONE IS GOING AGAINST GOD'S WILL. OUR SAGES HAVE SAID THAT THE FINAL REDEMPTION WILL BE LIKE THE FIRST IN WHICH ONLY 20% OF THE JEWS LEFT EGYPT (THE OTHERS DID NOT WISH TO LEAVE AND PERISHED IN THE PLAGUE DARKNESS.) I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND HOW A PEOPLE CANNOT FEEL ANY ATTACHMENT TO A SPECIAL PIECE OF LAN

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
