Vineyards Will Nevertheless Be Planted and Not Plucked Up

Have you ever read Amos' prophecy?  This one, 9:13-15 -

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD...And I will turn the captivity of My people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Some Arabs near us don't take too kindly to those words because on Saturday, our Shabbat, some four dunams of saplings were damaged (pictures here in this Hebrew site) at the vineyards of Achiyah.  Up to a thousand were uprooted and a large section of the sophisticated irrigation system was destroyed.  It will take some three years to restore the damage.

But it will be restored.  For we have decided to replant ourselves in our land and with help, all will be restored: Jewish agriculture, Jewish sopvereignty, Jewish morality.
