Thank you very much, but I have no interest, as an Iraqi Jew, of going back to Iraq. I am intersted in making an Aliyah, not in coming down. Though I may be fallen, I think this man is in total denial and deluding himself. The Holocaust happened BECAUSE a state of Israel had to materialize, after thousands of years of yearning. It is an insult to his relatives to deny them even this. To reach an accommodation with one's neighbors is indeed a difficult task, but should one apologize for being who we are? A nation of Jews, with our whole Jewish history tied to the Land of Israel. What is the Chumash all about BUT our exodus from Egypt and our going INTO the land??? Do we deny our own self-determination in order to support and accommodate that of the other? If you read the Torah, you will find that is not what haShem expected of us. What he is advocating, this Friedman from the exalted Empire of Austro-Hungaria, is not Teshouvah, at all. We cannot say how the Third Temple will be built.
