A Jew's view from the capital of Israel and the future site of the Third Temple, may it speedily be rebuilt.
Great link.I follow Rav Ovadiah, and I am a Zionist, so I read it without a Beracha after the whole davening.The idea of the state being a precursor to redemption is, in my opinion, not derailed by the current government's ideas of disengagement. We need to fight disengagement tooth and nail (i.e. non-violently), but not abandon ship while doing so.
TRK and Yaak:Thanks for the advice. I am going to have trouble separating my hapiness and thankfulness for the existence of the state from my disgust of the current government. I'll do my best.
