Crossing from Israel to Jordan
I love reading about your travels, makes me feel like I'm there. I just want to express my view on this post.
I think you have a wild interpretation of our love for the land which is rooted in our history (known to some as the Bible).
Actually, we count on the fact that you consider the Land "G-dless".
Life IS more valuable than land and no one should EVER die for it, but I won't think of it as Real Estate which implies a very mundane attachement.
There is no price I would not pay for a piece of Israel and there is no price I would accept to sell that piece.
An emotional attachement is one that transcends simplistic understanding. The fact that my religion brings that attachement to me is hardly akin to my wanting to kill to have it.
I hope you have a great trip, I'll keep reading.
