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.

The New Israel Fraud is at it again, and this time they are outraged at the oath of allegiance proposal that Israel is a Jewish and Democratic State.
They now say it outright -- their vision for a "New Israel" -- is one without any connection to Judaism whatsoever.
The new disingenuous NIF slogan is "equality and democracy for all Israelis" -- and "all Israelis" can be from Ghana or Sudan...
Their most recent call is that Israel may not have any religious character whatsoever, and must be a "state of all its citizens."
See the NIF "call to arms" below, in their sample letter of protest of PM Netanyanu, where they express "deep concern" as "staunch supporters of a [non-Jewish] Israel" -- that declaring Israel to be a Jewish and Democratic State is "infuriating."
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!"
