As a result, God punished the people by declaring that they must wait in the wilderness until another generation would be born.
Today we are physically in the promised Land, the Land G-d gave us, but ideologically, spiritually and emotionally, we the Jewish People are still not ready for the gifts G-d has given us. Peace will not come from concessions to our enemies. Peace will only come from our being truly sovereign in the Land of Israel, G-d willing.
