Tuesday the 28th of January saw the unveiling of the much-touted Deal of the Century.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. We saw the art of sophistry in full flight as United States President Donald Trump declared in one breath Jerusalem the undivided capital of the Jewish State and then with a straight face announce that a future Palestinian state would have its capital in East Jerusalem.

Even Houdini would find that trick hard to get out of.

Within hours the inevitable rent a crowd was burning flags and effigies of the U.S. leader in Arab occupied Jewish territory and world opinion while muted was gathering pace in support of the ‘Fake Arab Nation’ no surprises there.

So what you may ask. Well, for one thing, these governments of the world usurp the sovereign rights of a free people to decide what is in the best interests of its people while clamouring for the dismemberment of the Land of Israel.

They have taken the place of G-d and believe they can determine, absurdly, the borders of the Jewish inheritance. These ne’er do wells set out to loot our birthright and threaten the very survival of the Jewish people.

The only answer to the perfidy of the world’s nations is indefatigable “Not One Inch” of Jewish land to be surrendered in the name of peace or under any other name.

Yes, the esteemed anti-Semites will offer their sanguine lip service to Israel’s future while doing everything they can to undermine its right to exist.

The state of Israel was won and fought for by a handful Jews in 1947 / 48 and the Jewish State will fight in the future to secure that legacy alone if need be and if necessary once again with a handful of determined Jews.

In the meantime, our politicians should cherry-pick the best fruit from the eighty-page document while discarding the rest to the dustbin of history.

The Jewish peoples right to Eretz Israel including all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza should be loudly proclaimed everywhere they are not and never have been “occupied territories” rather a hostile Arab presence that currently drives a wedge between the Unity of our Land and its people are the occupiers who blatantly shed Jewish blood while being fated by the Europeans and Americans.

The time is well overdue to take measures to rectify this anomaly before the cancer becomes terminable.

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
