The Eretz

Today we went to Yad Vashem, which doubles as Israel's Holocaust Memorial and as the best museum in the world. I could write much longer about it, but the lesson of the museum is that after all of the tribulations and horrors, the Jews have their own land where they can feel safe. You are left with this breathtaking view of Jerusalem and you feel so connected to the physical land. This is why Israel will fight Hamas - eight years of Intifada is enough. The eretz (land) must be preserved.
