They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. This is a picture of the Yishuv in Mandatory Palestine as it existed on 18 Kislev 5708. On 17 Kislev, the UN had voted to end the British Mandate. At this time, the population of the Yishuv numbered some 650,000, a mere 30% of the total population. Next time someone you know claims that Medinat Yehudah is a pipe dream, show them this picture.
The Moslems were strong and we were weak. The Moslems were many and we were few. The Moslems sought to exterminate us all. But the Holy One Blessed Be He delivered them into our hands. Who is such an apostate as to claim that He cannot do it again?
If the will exists, Medinat Yehudah can be born de facto within a decade. If the will exists, Medinat Yehudah can be independent de jure within three decades. So, dear reader, ask yourself, do you WANT Medinat Yehudah?
