Listening to the voices coming out of Israel one is left dumbstruck. The connection between Jewry and the Land of Israel is more natural than bagel and lox, it is more like breath and life.
Jewish life is punctuated by the yearning for redemption.
The daily amida prayer where each Jew in intimate moments of devotion before G-D expresses his or her deepest yearnings both as an individual and as part of a nation. The notion of redemption is intimately tied to return to the land, rebuilding Jerusalem and the Temple.
The amidah concludes with two wishes one realize their portion of Torah and the rebuilt Temple.
The spiritual high points of the year the end of Yom Kippur and the conclusion of the Passover Seder Jewry as one proclaims "Next Year in Jerusalem"
The departure from Gaza has only caused misery both for Jews and Arabs. The instability between Fatah and Hamas and the newly opened areas that were Gush Katif serve as launch sites for Kassam rockets. And that does not begin to address the shameful treatment of Gush Katif's population.
Despite the model failing, despite each step being contrary to logic and heritage Olmert's government with their fellow traverlers seek to undermine the whole Zionist enterprise and frustrate the Jewish destiny in the Holy Land of Eretz Yisrael.
The pitiful nature of Prime Minister Olmert's plans is that it has no support not from the Arabs, Europeans or Americans. Imagine the world clamors for Israeli withdrawal it is offered and rejected. Logic would dictate that if one takes a risk made up of painful choices and is rejected continuing down the same path is now masochism.
Olmert will fail only because his plans are against G-D's design for a world guided by truth a world lead by MASHIACH
