Israelis and Jews from all over the world are "voting with their feet," or the moving van. Unfortunately, the world seems pretty united against Jewish rights to build homes, schools etc. for Jews. Nobody gives a hoot when Arabs build, sans permits etc. all over Judea and Samaria.
But adding an extra bedroom or a young family's new house is a terrible bureaucratic and political hassle for a Jews.
The State of Israel is not acting as a sovereign nation here, not at all. We should really reflect more on our history.
Shiloh's Mishkan Tabernacle Synagogue is designed to resemble the ancient Biblical Tabernacle which had been located in Shiloh for 369 years, from the rule of Joshua until the death of Eli the High Priest.
It was only us, the Jewish People who ever had a sovereign independent country here in the Land of Israel. No other people did. There were invaders, like the crusaders and Turkey, and the League of Nations empowered Great Britain with the Mandate to prepare the Jewish People for a Jewish state.
Unfortunately, the Arabs understand that demanding sovereignty is the key, although they have no history of sovereignty here. They are just the latest Jewish enemies willing to do anything to destroy us. If the Arabs were really willing to live in peace with us, we would be able to remain here in communities like Shiloh. But the truth is that the Arabs only plan on murdering us and destroying our homes and communities. History shows that whenever another society tries to take over, there is only destruction and then they desert the Land. The Land becomes desolate. It only thrives and is fertile when under Jewish care.
A hundred and fifty years ago, before Modern Zionism promoted return to the Land of Israel, it was barren. Very few Arabs or Jews lived here, and poverty was rampant.
Today, Israel, especially Jerusalem is enjoying a building boom not seen since the days of King Solomon. And communities like my Shiloh haven't grown this quickly since the Biblical Joshua.
Eventually, the United States will go the way of our other enemies, the Philistines, Babylonians and Ancient Egypt. So I really don't care what the American President says or thinks.
