Eretz Yisrael The tite "The Prohibition of Returning Territory", is incorrect, as there is nothing to Return. The title would be correct if stated as "The Prohibition of giving over control of any territory, which
G-d Says is part of Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel)." Reply

no peace? the claim that giving away land would endanger jewish lives is pure speculation. in the territories we cant fight a full out war. Reply

true peace firstly we shouldnt give away land because it iis our land but also true peace wouldnt be acheived by giving away land because palestinians dont care about peace they care about taking the land and destroying israel. its what they teach their children in the palestinian media. may the moshiach come soon so we dont have terrorism for long Reply

The Land Thank you for this audio class. It is so true that giving up land is very dangerous for the Jewish people. I pray it will not be done!! It will not bring peace, as the Arabs don't want peace, they want all of the Land!! God forbid!! Reply

It is a very clear halacha in Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law). Orach Chaim 229, there there is an obligation to protect Jewish lives, even if it is sometimes at the expense of other laws, such as Shabbat observance. Reply
