Israeli Independence Day In The Shadow Of Disengagement

Should I, can I, will I, say Hallel on Independence Day this year?

Of course.

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.
