Why Jews Need to Invest in Israel...

Read Full Article on Arutz-7:

375,000 acres of 5,500,000 acres of Israel is owned by Arabs.



At first glance, that doesn't seem like a lot of land. That's at first glance. Israel, a country roughly the size of New Jersey, is not that big. And this number is not including Judea and Samaria, because the world doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over its own country.  With a major portion of Israel being owned by the enemies of the state, how can we expect for there to be safety for the citizens of Israel?

I have discussed many ways that you can help Israel. Activism works, but sometimes, cold hard cash speaks bigger volumes. There are many ways to help Israel legally purchase this land, regardless of the price. Putting a price on safety and security, as well as the idealogical reasons, on purchasing land in Israel is impossible. There is an old adage that says "If you save one life, its as if you saved the entire world."

It's time to start buckling down and do everything humanly possible to keep Israel in its own hands and not its enemies. On both sides of this blog are links to different websites and organizations that can use both money and support. It is by no means a full list, nor are these better than the others. This is just the beginning.

For business to blossom and development to take place, Israel must have places for its residents to live and to build industry and economy. No Israel should have to be afraid to open a store or bring their car into a village mechanic with the fear of being ridiculed, beaten or worse, killed. This is not over-reacting. This is not over zealousness of an Ideologue. Within the last year, I have seen article after article of people being chased, beaten, stoned, shot, stabbed, killed, saved. One article, a young man was beaten unmercifully by an Arab population for nothing more than bringing his car into the village mechanic. It was stupid, I am aware, but it is even more stupid that he has to worry, in Israel, that a Jew will be beaten for living a normal life.

Please...do whatever you can. In fact, unless you are a millionaire, I find it useless to try and give huge amounts. You are less apt to give and you are more apt to forget. Contact any pro-Israel charity. Set up a payment plan of $10, $50, $100 dollars a month. That constant income helps more than anyone can believe.

If you are thinking about setting up a business there, there are organizations that can help you with that as well. United with Israel is very willing to help.

If you are going to move there, you cannot beat Nefesh b'Nefesh and all of its resources. Also, to buy in Israel, if you are so apt to do so, the Israel Land Fund is extremely important in the fight of Israel's existence.
