For those who are home, and for those who are on the way. For those who support the historic and just return of the land of Israel to its people, forever loyal to their inheritance, and its restoration.
It isn't the fault of the people who pushed to break up coalition governments when the leadership defied their mandates. The fault is with the politicians who underestimated the consequences of breaking their promises to their constituents.
The lesson, time and again, has also been that when a leader turns to act in violation of his mandate, that time works against those who seek to stop him.
Now, that's not to say that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu came back from Washington resigned to ultimately march in lockstep according to President Obama's orders.
Just that it should be made clear, for the benefit of all concerned, that everyone in this game is considerably more experienced than the last times around.
Netanyahu certainly deserves credit for refusing to bow down and proclaim his faith in the two-state religion - and for his very clear rejection of a settlement freeze. But his remarks relating the outpost issue to Iran is a dangerous precedent.
Now, while it is certainly the case that Prime Minister Sharon wrote of the "removal of unauthorized outposts" in his 14 April 2004 exchange of letters with President Bush, we also know that there are many outposts that lack authorization because they are missing a few signatures on some paperwork. The "removal of unauthorized outposts" ultimately applies, if we put our minds to it, only to those outposts that have underlying legal impediments that prevent their being authorized.
So the outpost story is considerably more complicated than an "all or nothing " proposition.
How Netanyahu picks his way through this challenge will send a message to his constituents as much as to Washington regarding his operating parameters.
Prime Minister Netanyahu may be calling, for the record, for Israelis to back down on the outpost issue. But we all know that he needs for the opposite to be the case.
The harder it is for him to do anything on the outpost issue, the easier it will be for him to withstand pressure to compromise on the many other matters on the table.
I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
