A Unique View on Justice of the Jewish Claim to Eretz-Yisrael

In the Guardian:

Major Adrian Agassi...Israeli army lawyer and then military judge...has come to see himself as in service of a higher duty...Agassi has laid out his belief that Israel has a biblical claim to territory beyond its borders and that he, even as an immigrant, has a right to live on it when those born there do not.

"When we [Israelis] say that this is a political conflict, then we lose the battle," he told the Guardian, adding that it should be remembered that the ancient land of Israel is "given to us by the Bible, not by some United Nations".

...settling Jews on lands that made up ancient Israel stands above all other biblical commandments and only when it is done can they have "a promised land and a promised life".

"You say that these lands 'passed into Jewish hands'. Others would say that they came back into Jewish hands. Others would say that they are obviously ours, inherently," he said. It was, he claims, a mistake to call it the State of Israel. "If we would have named it the State of Jews, the Arabs would have understood that this land belongs to the Jews."

...Agassi was born in Southgate, London, in 1964 to a family of rabbis from Baghdad...Agassi says a peace agreement with the Palestinians "goes against nature" because as far as he can see nothing had changed in last 4,000 years in the land of Israel, and that back to biblical times Arabs and Jews were at each other's throats.

Agassi uses the term Arabs because he claims Palestinians do not exist.

..."You read the raw intelligence material and you see that most of them are moved by religious doctrine, not by a political one. They use religion in order to justify killing as many Jews as possible. Is this not a religious war?"

People like Agassi are the reason Israel is so despised. the arrogance and presumption sicken me. Give up the occupied territories and your nuclear weapons, tear down your wall, get back to the pre-1967 boundaries and think yourself lucky that you have what's left. How can the victims of the holocaust inflict equal suffering on the palestinians?

Ah, gee, Ian (whoever you are), you're despising of Israel. Well, think of it this way: if the Arabs had not set about killing Jews starting in 1920, in 1921, in 1929 and then throughout 1936-39, the British probably would not have instituted their White Paper policy. And since you are not so arrogant or presumptuous, you surely know that because of that While Paper policy, millions of Jews could not get out of Europe to enter the Palestine Mandate which was supposed to be by international law, the reconstituted Jewish national home where Jews could be free and safe from antisemites like Hitler (I am not sure you are an antisemite so I'll just think of you as an anti-Zionist but the result is almost the same - no security for Jews, either in our homeland or in the diaspora). And they died. How can the victims of the Holocaust inflict "equal suffering"? "Equal"? "EQUAL"? Are you an idiot? Show me concentration camps, furnaces, doctors making experiments on twins, pulling out gold teeth from dead bodies, tattooed arms. Oh, Ian, oh, Ian, you are such a nanny.

Moral and ethical bankruptcy

Americans are finding a grotesque echo in the moral – ethical bankruptcy and worse of a substantial sector of American society.

The “moral depravity” of “the Arabs” who kill innocent civilians. It is more than moral depravity. It is a culture that teaches, educates and breeds hate toward other societies that are not like them as they say “infidels”.

There is no way this situation should be handled with kid gloves – when a poison strikes your body, you remove it and destroy it completely, leaving no trace of such poison.

History has shown that these types of atrocities and acts of barbarism have increased in the past half a century and getting worse by the day.

With today’s advancement in technology and telecommunications, the world has shrunk, events on the other side of the world affect everybody (like the Japanese Nuclear reactor fallout etc.) it affects our health our economy, brings fear and uncertainty to our lives.

The financial crisis we are facing today is the price we pay for years of neglect and government abuse of power.

Is today’s society heading toward annihilation, you be the judge?

The Qur'an 17:104 - states the land belongs to the Jewish people

Every time there is a terrorist act, Israel should vacate an Arab village and raze it.

In most lives, I suppose there comes a time when one has to make a supreme effort that calls for every morsel of more and more endeavor and more than not that effort has to be sustained.
