    We need our students in Israel and the diaspora to connect to their homeland. The biblcal roots, the historical and legal roots (based on San Remo Resolutions 1920). Understand how Israel was reconstituted and the agreements between the Arabs, the Jewish People and the Allied Powers, and the United Nations, 52 nations in all, who all unanimously declared that the Jewish People had the right to reconstitute their national homeland based on the ancient connection to that land. This is legally binding in international law to this day. Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Jordan for the Arabs and from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea for the Jewish People - agreed to by all. I am sure once you understand the facts of history it will put all of todays arguements into a much different perspective and you will appreciate Israel in a completely different way. Many of these arguements would become moot. Understand your history before you take a stand - I do hope to be celebrating Israel at 100 one day.
