Two thousand years later, the pioneers who came to revive the land of Israel felt that this lifeline had become a noose. They had to cut it to feel the earth under their feet. Those tremendous energies sprang forth, giving birth to the state of Israel.
Dear friends, Israeli society has hit an ethical dead end. We can no longer justify our sovereign existence in this land without our Father, our King, whom we had left behind in the exile. We must reconnect to our identity. When we return to ourselves, we will be able to afford full liberty and human rights to our neighbors as well.
I pray that God will give me the strength to connect vision with reality, to restore the state of Israel to itself and its destiny in the service of the nation of Israel and the vision of the prophets, to perfect the world in the Kingdom of Heaven.
