The Land of Israel

The Land of Israel

 Email

G‑d has enabled the Jewish people to live as sovereigns in the Holy land, the place of our forefathers--the land promised to the Jews by G‑d.

This reality places a special burden and privilege upon Israel's citizens and its government: to preserve the Jewish integrity of the country. Its educational system must be founded and inspired by Jewish values and the Jewish tradition so that its citizens grow to be proud keepers of their Jewish heritage.

In its relations with other nations, those responsible for representing its government in foreign affairs must proudly assert its Jewish pride and traditions. This is certain to enhance the esteem with which Israel will be regarded.

Jewish law sets forth the criteria necessary for Israel's peace and safety: these can only be achieved from a position of military strength and secure borders. Any sign of willingness to even speak about relinquishing land to our enemies is sure to encourage terrorism in Israel and abroad.
