Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The MSM here were shocked last week when the deputy foreign ministress Tsipora Hotovely said that Israel must not hesitate to assert that the entire Land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria, belongs to the Jewish people.

Personally, I doubt she meant southern Lebanon, southwestern Syria and western Jordan, but let’s leave that aside. My book makes crystal clear the real Eretz Yisrael includes those areas.

More important was the point that Israel has an historic, religious claim on Judea and Samaria and it should not be ashamed to make it in public.

Said one anonymous foreign ministry operative, a department by the way notoriously the creation of Uncle Shimon, “It’s the first time anyone has asked us to use verses from the Torah for public diplomacy abroad.”

How true. And I find it astonishing that it is, even when I know the history of Israel and should not be surprised. One of the great shameful secrets of the Zionist movement is that it sold itself to the world as the salvation of the Jewish people, when in truth, secular Zionism was about leaving them behind; about so fundamentally changing the Jews as to turn them into non-Jews; to a normal people in Shimon Peres’s ideology.

That of course means no more resorting to the Bible for one’s identity as the Chosen People chosen to be faithful to the Bible and its requirements of the Jewish people. Like Commandment No. 4: Keep the Sabbath…
