A Quote For Independence Day

"If we abandon this critical hour, of the beginning of the development of the (Jewish) settlement (in the land of Israel), and the physical and spiritual weakness and the lack of means of war will reach their peak among the faithful in the land of Israel, and the high hand armed with lawlessness and gentile ways, truly without any trace of the holiness of Israel, that covers its shards with the dross of counterfeit nationalism with grains of (Jewish) history and fondness of the (Hebrew) language, that enclothes externally with an Israeli form while the interior is completely non-Jewish, that stands to become a destroyer and a monster, and in the end also to the hatred of Israel and the land of Israel, as we have realized according to experience, -- this impure hand will prevail, and there is no way to elucidate the magnitude of the tragedy."

- Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaKohen Kook (Letters 144)
