One doesn't Make Deals About One's Homeland

We have now seen and heard the primary official details of the Deal of the Century, and it is, indeed, a bad deal for Israel.

Presumably, the intentions that led to the formulation of the program were good intentions; however, they lack the basic understanding of the essence of the Land of Israel.

The Land of Israel is the sole homeland of the Jewish people. The Land of Israel belongs to us, to the generations that preceded us and the generations that have yet to come. 

One does not conduct business or make deals on a homeland.

Any compromise regarding this absolute, historic principle, any agreement to relinquish sections of our land will be interpreted by history as an admission that the occupation falsehood is true. A people cannot be an occupier of its own land.

A people does not willingly relinquish its heartland.

Beyond its historical significance, this concession has very severe security ramifications, as concession, especially in the Middle East in interpreted as weakness, and as such encourages more and more terrorism. 

We are liable to find ourselves in a situation several times more severe than the situation in Gaza, as the missiles will be much more advanced, much more deadly and especially, these missiles will be much closer to the densely populated center of the country.

The objective of sovereignty and the Sovereignty Movement is the realization of the right of the Jewish people over the entire Land of Israel. This is due to a moral obligation based on history, Jewish law, and international law.
All this is to ensure the independence and security of the Land of Israel and the Jewish people residing in it.

A necessary corollary of these objectives is preventing the delusional and dangerous idea of establishing a Palestinian state, abrogation of the Oslo Accords, stopping the Arab land grab, and the generous planning of the National Outline Plan for the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel, a plan based on Israeli sovereignty and a solid Jewish majority between the Mediterranean and the Jordan.

The deal presented today by US President Donald Trump does not meet the essential expectations for the future of the Jewish people. It runs contrary to the objectives noted here, and consequently, we must forcefully reject it.

Israel must not be drawn into an agreement in principle to this proposal on the basis of the long term familiarity with Arab rejectionism. 

Rather, it must not again say that the Arabs have never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Israel cannot base its Zionist vision and its future on the incidental rejectionism of a random Arab leader or the agreement of another Arab leader.

The Zionist vision and the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel are substantial matters of principle that are not currency to be used in any deal.

Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar are the co-leaders of the Sovereignty Movement.

Israel is our inherited homeland, true. But מפני חטאינו גלינו מארצנו. Not מפני חלישתנו and not מפני טפשתנו or מפני anything else. We are now there and have a medina not because Moshiach came, as he did not yet come. We Daven WITH SINCERITY not just lip service and we say גלה כבוד מלכותך עלינו והופע והנשא עלינו .... וקרב פזורנו .... והביאנו לציון..... As of yet, we wait for this. The existence of The State of Israel at this time did not happen through these means but rather through various human interventions. The fact that Netanyahu and other Israeli politicians praise this 'Deal of The Century' is because as your article so eloquently highlights, they really all know what I have just said here. So yes we do need an army for our protection but that isn't the geula shelaima. We do all of things as a בדיעבד for practicle puroses. When Moshich will come then וכתתו חרבותיכם ... ולא ילמדו עוד מלחמה.

Your article seems not to realize this.

No frum Jew ever said that the "geulah" is here, but that doesn't mean it didn't start we see with our own eyes what you say three times a day in Shemonah Esrah ....
וקבצנו יחד מארבע כנפות הארץ לארצנו
this has already started
And we need an army ..... as did Moshe Raabeinu, Dovid Hamelech, Shlomo Hamelech, Chashmanoim, R' Akivah
We need Tzivos Hashem as well ...

Ok, so then the sentiment in this article about not giving away parts of our homeland is irrelevant. Our homeland in it's totality will be redeemed by Hashem when the time comes. It isn't our job to help Hashem with that at the expense of Jewish blood. The Torah doesn't tell us that we have to do that to help Hashem with the geula. So if the best practical plan for peace and security and all practical purposes is to go with this deal then we should do that.

I'm not addressing the second point in the article. If best practical advice is that this isn't a good idea strategically then that reason is certainly relevant, but I am only addressing the main point in the article.

May moshiach (the messiah) come bimhayroo beyoomaynu (speedily, nowadays).
And eradicate elitism, exclusivity and make us a light unto the nations. A highly valuable resource and we (and by definition everyone) will be truly welcomed everywhere.

May the Shcheena (Holy Spirit) decent on the temple mount and from there unto the whole earth and universe.

So anti's and never's, don't mess with Trump. He's a black swan.

Don't get too worked up as Arabs will never accept any deal where they don't screw the other side out of 100%.

There is such a thing as black swans. They are a rare, protected species. Trump has a flock of them living on his golf course in Florida. A guest of the resort who is a freya Yid from NY took a golf iron & savagely beat one of the swans to death. He was going to be charged with animal cruelty but the evidence was lost after an alligator or some other predatory animal ate the carcass for lunch. Trump then banned the idiot for life from all of his properties.
