REENERGIZING ZIONISM

DANNY AYALON

The moment God said to Abraham Lech-Lecha, Zionism was born. Almost 4,000 years later, the Jewish People as a nation have never known any other home. Through 2,000 years of exile, our people faced the land of Zion during every prayer, remembered its destruction at every wedding and hoped for its rebuilding at the end of every Pesach Seder and Yom Kippur’s Neilah Service.

The new indictment is based on additional (digital) documents, said to reinforce the original charges, which prosecutors have “found” in a naval base and at the home of a retired colonel.
