in response to reader comment: My reply to Wallace Edward Brand

Israel's main problem is not the Arabs within her borders, but he Arab Muslim sentiments outside of her borders as they align themselves for the plan of expelling the Jews from their homeland. Whether an internal population is/or is not able to control a national sovereignty is dependent on many things, not the least of which is its government protecting the citizens under their care.

Calling the Israeli state a Zionist project is intriguing; for on the one hand, while it is certain that reader Banerjee means it as an epithet, Israel in its basic form IS a Zionist project, one called for by her Almighty G-d. The Tanach is replete with the call for Zion, for Zion is the L—D's; and that means Jerusalem is the L—D's.

In the future, citizenship in the Kingdom will be required to enter Jerusalem and this will be the case as the Kingdom is established on earth by Israel's King, Yeshua ben David. Being Arab then without being a disciple of Yeshua HaMashiach will mean that no rights of citizenship are conferred, irrespective of immigration status, Ottoman cession, the British Mandate or the Balfour Declaration.

As for the ultra-Orthodox being anti-Zionist, all one need do is read the Tanach independent of any commentaries to understand that being Zionist does NOT violate the Holy Scriptures, but in fact is authenticated by the WORD of the L—D as He prepares Israel for His return. Being Israeli and not being Zionist; that is the paradox instead of being Arab in the Holy Land.
