The Simple Explanation.

A freind who lives in my apartment complex, someone who's not Jewish, came up to me the other day.

"What's all this about?" he asked. He was genuinely confused. He really couldn't figure it out. Why would Israel be throwing their own citizens out of thier homes.

I gave him the simplist explanation I could think of.

The leaders of Israel and a lot of the other secular Jews, both in Israel and here in the U.S. don't really believe we deserve the land. They think we stole it from the Arabs. They feel guilty. So, of course they think we should give it back.

Observant Jews don't have that problem. They know that we have a deed to the land. A deed called the Torah.

"Oh," he said. Finally he understood. But he walked away shaking his head. Because he knew no other people on earth would need such proof.
