Serves 'em right.


But in truth, Jews don't belong there anyway.


They belong in Israel.

Jewish people belong where ever the individual Jewish person says they belong




Nope.


The Jewish people belong in Eretz Yisrael.


Anywhere else is exile, and it's un-natural.

>>>>>>>>> Help me out to understand your point of view.


As per your answer, A Russian Jew, An Indian Jew, An Etheopian Jew, A Polish Jew, An Iranian Jew will be "Natural" in Biblical Israel (Modern Palestine).


How about native Arabs who lived in that land for hundreds of years. Are they "Natural"?

In a word, yes.


A Jew anywhere else is not in his natural environment.


Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) is his or her or their natural environment. Anywhere else is exile.

Are you saying that Jews aren't human? The natural environment for any human being is an environment that will support human life. I'd be very surprised if the same isn't true for Jews. All of my ancestors were from the British Isles, yet I survive quite comfortably in North America. According to you, I should be dead.

No, but they have a special task in the world.


And it is best done in the Holy Land.


Anywhere else is "ex-post-facto", or as we say בדיעבד


Of course, this is all in theory, and I cannot say that the Israelis are doing a bang-up job of it, but it's at least a start in the right direction.

I always wondered about it, why not California (Land of milk and honey), Why not New York (A welcoming place), why not Florida?

And at the conclusion of the Seder they say: "Next year in Jerusalem"

“So long as there is squalor in the world, those obsessed with social justice feel obliged not only to live in it themselves but also to spread it evenly.”
