I almost always skip articles when I find out they were written by Akiva Eldar, since I have learned that I become physically ill most of the time after reading any part of his opinions. I almost made the quick escape out of the article (browser back button) with only a very quick skimming and still feeling OK, until I saw the last line regarding what "our sages taught". The hypocrisy unfortunately hit me and I became instantly nauseated. What did Our Sages Teach about the Land of Israel, Mr. Eldar? What do they teach about giving up the Land, The Temple, Mount, about Amalek, about the promise of the land? That you dare quote "our sages" when discussing giving up the land of Israel... well, excuse me, ...but I'm getting sick to my stomach right now.
