Eretz Yisrael Time

In an eye-opening discussion with my Leftist friends in Gush Dan today they expressed something very scary to me.

Forget for the moment that they completely deny even the possibility that Jews may have bought the Amona land, and if they did it was only with Settler trickery (and besides buying it just damages the State).

More importantly, they said that Jews don’t belong in Hebron, and the land stolen in 1929 is lost, and the Jews should forget about it.

“Why?” I ask.

“Because, your actions are damaging the state.”

“How? It's our land.”

“You’re opening up a can of worms.”

“And what would that be?”

“If Jews can legally claim their land in Hebron, then Arabs can legally claim their land in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Yafo, and everywhere else in Israel.”

I guess that says it all, doesn’t it?

The left don’t feel secure in their claim to the Land of Israel, to living in the land of Israel, or even to their own homes in Israel, and that is the real basis for all their anti-settler sentiment and activity.

We’re opening up their can of worms which they need to keep shut - by hook or by crook.

I’m glad they finally made that clear.

Joe, unfortunately you know it isn't that simple... and only a few people on the far left deny Israeli legitimacy to be here.

Whatever, the Amona business is horrible, whatever "side" you're watching from.

Ahh, but on what basis do Israelis justify it?

Most would say the holocaust and thus we need some land for a state.

Overall, a rather weak argument.

I'm sorry I don't have time right now to go into this in more depth.
