    Thank you Gideon. I would like to add that I wasn't born during world war II but I remember my grand-parents talking about this time. They didn't agree with Hitler and called Germans "Bosh". They had a very bad time during that war. And I wander : why did it happen ? Before the war, there was a big depression, a crisis. Many people were starving in Europe. Would Jews who were living in the nations have been made uneasy if they had shown a bit of compassion and solidarity with the people among which they were living ? Many Jews were wealthy and liked to show it. They were calling Christians "goiim" in a scornfull way. "Goï" comes from guéhah = to cure, so "cured" (for a few, at least). Aretz, the dry path, the narrow door must exist within the mind before one enter the land. Aretz is enabled by generosity. Isn't Aretz living in the present with no hatry from the past and no fear for the futur, but with the faith in Elohim.
