Our Right to Exist

Meryl Yourish has an incredible post with quotes from Menachem Begin on the existence of Israel. It's absolutely brilliant - both what Begin said and what Meryl writes. Take out the two minutes to read her post.

“Mr. Speaker: We were granted our right to exist by the God of our fathers at the glimmer of the dawn of human civilization four thousand years ago. Hence, the Jewish people have an historic, eternal and inalienable right to exist in this land, Eretz Yisrael, the land of our forefathers. We need nobody’s recognition in asserting this inalienable right. And for this inalienable right, which has been sanctified in Jewish blood from generation to generation, we have paid a price unexampled in the annals of nations.”
