Genesis and Occupation

Nurit Greenger

You will agree with me that G-D created the world and thus the world is His property. In that case G-D is allowed to do whatever He wants with his property.

Many years after the creation of the world, as the Bible tells us, G-D decided to give some of his property in Canaan, as He was entitled to do because he was the proprietor of that part of the land, to the Israelites, later on to be called Eretz Yisrael, later to become the kingdom of Israel and Judea, and today it is the state of Israel.

Therefore, when people tell you that Israel occupies land that in fact belongs to the Arabs, you need to make it simple that, this land was given to the Jews by God, and so whoever is pointing fingers of guilt at the Israelis-Jews as being occupiers of that land must go arbitrate the matter with G-D; we, Jews-Israelis are here to stay on our land from the river to the sea.

Genesis - Chapter 48:4
And said unto me: Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a company of peoples; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.
