Speaking the Truth

Rashi comments on the very first verse in the Torah: “It could happen that gentiles will claim that the Jews stole the Land of Israel from them. Therefore, G-d related His mighty works in the Book of Genesis to show that it was He Who created the Land of Israel and it was he who gave it to the Jewish People.”
Israel, Arab-Israeli Conflict, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Speaking the Truth
Disc 131, Program 521

Event Date: 18 Iyar 5738 - May 25, 1978

Rashi comments on the very first verse in the Torah: “It could happen that gentiles will claim that the Jews stole the Land of Israel from them. Therefore, G-d related His mighty works in the Book of Genesis to show that it was He Who created the Land of Israel and it was he who gave it to the Jewish People.”

Instead of inventing all sorts of retorts, why not simply state the truth? After all, if the Torah of Truth itself provides us with the proper response, there is no doubt that in the end it will be effective.
