Oops! We Sinned!


Oh boy, did they ever. Can you imagine owning property and being told you can’t build on it because of your race or religion or the fact that you walk funny, but your neighbor across the street – who actually hates you – can build his house while he makes taunting faces at you? Sounds like junior high school, but it isn’t. That is the scene in Israel, the only Jewish country in the entire world, and the only place in the entire world where Jews can’t build whenever and wherever they want! It just doesn’t compute. The Jewish government was forced to put a freeze on building of homes, even in Jerusalem, to appease the terroristic appetites of their enemies, and our government was the heavy handed henchman delivering the demands.

I’ve driven the roads of Israel numerous times and I’ve seen Arab villages grow into Arab cities almost overnight. They’ve built houses and apartment complexes that stand empty, their hollow windows and cement shells mocking the growing families of Jewish passers by who are forced to live in apartments too small or with family members. It is beyond my imagination how the world can allow this, yet young Jewish couples who want to build a home down the street or across the road from their parents are denied this privilege for no other reason than they are Jews. And, to deny Jews the right to build homes in Jerusalem, the holiest of cities for Jews, is without an excuse. In fact, the apologizing Members of Knesset are right – it is a sin and nothing short of it. In seven days, the freeze deadline is up. Will we hear the sound of hammers and drills or will there be silence in the hills of Israel – except for terrorist guns, of course. As for me and my house, we say “build baby build!”
