Zionism, in a nutshell

Chaim Weizmann

 

A member of the House of Lords asked Chaim Weizmann (Israel’s first president), “Why do you Jews insist on Palestine when there are so many undeveloped countries you could settle in more conveniently?”

Weizmann said: “That’s like asking why you drove 20 miles to visit your mother last Sunday when so many old ladies live on your street.”

    The United States needs to stick by Isreal forwhen we turn away from Isreal God will turn his back on. Whoever blesses Isreal will be blessed and who ever doesn’t bless Isreal will be destroyed.

    God will Bless and Keep Israel forever. One could say “Why don’t the islamics spread themselves over the millions of acres of Islam countries among their brothers, rather than Israel?”

    What right does anyone, (whether they be from the house of lords or king tut himself) ask why the Jews feel such a longing for the land that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has given to them. If the Jews were to try another piece of land they would be going outside what God promised to them and there would be attempts to push them out of there also. I appreciate other peoples rights and religions but in my opinion the Creator of this universe has promised this land to the Jews, Israel. Sha’Alu Shalom Yerushalayim

    I have never heard such a profound explanation and it is so true. That land is the Jew’s mother land given by God.

      time…so easy to forget…if their is no one to teach,one becomes what he hears,what he sees,what he thinks about,what he talks about an perhaps instructed to attend.Therefore Yisrael forgot their GOD for they were living in good…. times.(Yosep was governor of Egypt)Rulers come and go,time…The Old Culture is replaced by young culture learning of new gods an their teaching,they are ailen to the land,they are becomming Slaves….over 400 years they have been in Egypt now a slave to that people and their culture..(Ask yourself)Do I want to be here,is there an escape for me,isn’t there a land where we can keep our harvest, raise our children and have the GOD once spoken about SERVE US….Abhrams GOD was/is????…That God heard their Cries,Let my people go.(Wild…. erness,why that route,why 40 years,What did they need to Learn,perhaps in the…wild. they will come to know Yahwah teaching and instructions,TORAH.’”.prescription for living”

Rabbi's Commentary
All Who Are Hungry

While Israel is the Middle East’s most modern country, nearly one-third of Israeli children and one quarter of elderly Israelis live in poverty. With your help, we at The Fellowship will continue to liberate these – Israel’s most vulnerable citizens – from hunger, want, and pain.
