Our right to a homeland does not derive from the fact that yes, there are Muslims there and we treat them well. We have an inherent right to be a nation in the place where we, as a people, fundamentally became a people. There is no shortage of land for Arabs in the world. It is true that our critics are blitheringly ignorant and bigoted, but we need not cede our rights either and it bears reminding.

I am proud of this kid. He did well. Did not mean to criticize him when I noted something that I think should be added. I did not mean that he needed to add it but that we should in general recognize it: that our right to our homeland is inherent and logical. But the kid is eloquent and has guts, and good for him.

Eretz Yisroel is ours because Hashem decided it’s ours

No disagreement. There is an argument on the basis of Tanach, and also an argument in terms that non-Jewish people can understand. Eretz Yisrael is the land where our nation was created, and no other nation ever had an independent existence there.

That Hashem gave it to us is a good argument for us, who believe in Hashem and the Torah, but it’s completely useless when talking to people who don’t. The vast majority of people in the world, including the overwhelming majority of people in the UK (and in New York) do NOT believe in the Torah. They think we made the Torah up. So why would they be impressed at being told that in the book we made up we wrote that Eretz Yisroel belongs to us? Would you be impressed if someone wrote a book saying that your house… Read more »

Josh comes at her with facts. He got her when he told her that 2 million arabs live in Israel.

She gets her facts from social media and other ignoramuses. Not a clue about history. She has no idea what she’s talking about and he exposed her for the idiot she is. We need more Josh’s in this world. Unafraid to speak up for the truth.

Amazing

Amazing! I wish I had the courage to do that.

The UN did NOT give the land to us

He’s wrong when he claims the UN gave Israel the land. That is just not true. Israel exists only because when the British mandate was about to end the Jewish people there declared their own independence. That is the entire basis for the state; and it’s a good basis. But the UN never gave Israel anything and played no role in establishing it.
