"The Jewish people have eternal rights to the Land of Israel." (Meir M) That is for sure. But think - if you have ever learned how it is done. Has Israel, the UN state member committed to international law, "eternal rights" to all of the Land, from the sea to the river? And to rule over all its population? That is a proposition much more disputable. To believe it, one has to be a fundamentalist Jew. Should we, as a first step, call the entire world to convert to the true religion? The way Ben Laden and the Ayatullahs do? Rabbi Yehuda Gelman said, "We can desire the Land of Israel with great yearning, but that does not constitute sufficient merit. [...] To deserve the Land we must become a society of spiritual excellence in all spheres of life, a nation of decency, in government and personal relations. Obsessive concentration on Eretz Yisrael should yield to concentrating on creating before God a meritorious nation." www.yeshiva.org.il/midrash/shiur.asp?cat=58&id=4825&q= Now, will you enlight me Meir M? Where is it written that to deserve all the Land, we have to rule a foreign and stateless people? What is so "meritorious" in that? And what kind of "spiritual excellence and decency in government" is this?
