Atlanta, GA, is a hard place for Orthodox Jews to leave: That was the message I got from my Shabbat hosts in Atlanta. That is even though they are dreaming of making Aliyah to Israel and even own homes/apartments there. Everything they need for a full, fulfilling, rewarding Torah Jewish life can be conveniently found in their Atlanta neighborhood.
If the State of Israel, Prime Minister on down would just announce, inflexibly that we declare sovereignty over all of Judea, Samaria, Jordan Valley, Golan etc, no negotiations, they would back us. Your ordinary person in the States, according to them, accepts the 1967 Six Day War victory as the legal defeat of the Arab armies, Jordan, Egypt and Syria, which had tried to destroy the State of Israel. We never fought a country called “Palestine,” since there never was one in the entire history of the world. The so-called “Palestinian People” is a fiction invented/created to undermine and destroy the Jewish State of Israel.
