Land of Israel belongs to the Jews

“Rashi says the Torah opens with the story of the creation of the world so that if the nations of the world come and tell you that you are occupiers, you must respond that all of the land belonged to the creator of world and when he wanted to, he took from them and gave to us,” she quoted from the commentary. She also quoted from Rabbi Yehuda Ashkenazi as saying. “If the Jews are convinced of the justice of their path vis-a-vis the world, they will already manage.” Meanwhile, former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman apologized Thursday after calling supporters of a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict “autistic,” the Jewish Telegraphic Agency said. Lieberman, who heads the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, made his remarks earlier Thursday in an interview with Israel Radio. “Anyone who thinks going back to the 1967 lines will solve the conflict is autistic,” Liberman said. Lieberman, who is not a part of the new Israeli government, accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of zigzagging on the two-state issue, saying he supports it after indicating during the election that it was no longer an option. Jay Ruderman, the head of the Ruderman Family Foundation, had demanded that Lieberman apologize. In a statement released later Thursday, he cited Lieberman as stating, “I didnt mean in any way to offend autistic people, but wanted to illustrate the unwillingness of some people to accept certain realities about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and I apologize if anyone was hurt.”
