Instead, let our approach be that of Caleb, who bravely contradicts the chorus of naysayers and implores: “Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome…” This should be our present attitude, because what was true then is equally true now. The Jewish people will indeed be able to overcome the obstacles to sovereignty in the land of its ancestors, if only it first prevails over the impeding ambivalences within.

  1. Your article makes sense to me only in a vacuum. 2,568,555 hostile Palestinians, not counting Jerusalem, beg the question, what do we do?

    I would love for Israel not to leave beloved areas, but I do hesitate about the many dangers annexing them would bring.

    You say these outcomes, however, can be prepared for and dealt with. But you do not explain. So I am left feeling the article is more cheerleading.

    It is a virtue to believe that Hashem is on our side. But that did not help us against the Romans.

    The US alliance is what keeps Israel strong. It is built on a complex web of mutual interests and public opinion. I seriously doubt it would withstand such a move.
