    B"H A number of quick retorts pop to mind, such as: Well if the holy burial place of the forefathers was not being promoted as a national heritage site - what exactly was? Or, Has no one ever thought of these two places before? But, it's better late than never. Part of this quote remains somewhat troubling, though: "Our existence depends not only on the IDF or our economic resilience - it is anchored in...the national sentiment that we will bestow upon the coming generations and in our ability to justify our connection to the land," said the premier. Justify? Our connection to this land is common knowledge, not only in Western society but even Orientals I know are aware of it. I personally think we've got quite an illustrious history, as a people, as a nation under G-d, in Israel and outside. I think words like 'justify' really should be obliterated from these discussions, replaced with our hard earned pride.
