I thought of it when reading this New York Times article about fathers who discover through DNA testing that their child isn't their biological child and all the legal, financial and emotional repercussions.
Recently Torah Tidbits has had a series from The Puah Institute about children with "two mothers," the one who provided the egg and the one who carried and nurtured the baby in her womb.
There's so much modern relevance in ancient Jewish Law. In the NY Times article, some of the fathers reject the child the minute they realize that there's no biological connection, but others have true paternal feelings irrelevant to any DNA.
How can I write about this without discussing our claim to the Land G-d Gave Us, Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel? Israeli politicians, media and all sorts of misguided Jewish leaders, here and abroad, are endangering the very existence of the State of Israel, because they are offering compromise, cutting the baby in half. I don't have "polite words" for them. I'm firm and consistent, unwavering that we Jews are the only People with a national history here, and we're the only People who have the right to a state a nation here.
