On the eve of Independence day, Israeli economy minister Naftali Bennett explain why he is a Zionist.
Naftali Bennett is the chairman of the political party Bayit Yehudi, who refuse to depart Judea and Samaria for a new “Palestinian” state.
My Zionism is first of all derived from the Torah. In my eyes, Israel is not only a shelter state for the Jewish people; it is the homeland of our fathers, and that is how David Ben-Gurion saw it, too. It’s not about security.
Our right to the land comes first.
That was expressed in my parents’ aliya to Israel [from the US], which came 100 per cent from Zionism. They were not religious at the time, but they were Zionists.
I think Zionism is learning about every corner of our land through our feet, with hikes and journeys through the mountains and rivers. Of course, Zionism is military service and a Jew’s ability to defend his people with his own strength, without needing help from other countries.
There is a lot of Zionism in innovation and hi-tech that we see today. Our technology fulfills the mission of the Jewish people, tikkun olam (repairing the world) in the medical field, through water and food technology. We export that and save millions of lives throughout the world.
I made a decision almost 10 years ago, after leaving the hi-tech field and fighting in the Second Lebanon War, to dedicate my life to the State of Israel and promote Zionism.

The borders of the state of Israel are not negotiable. They represent the sum of military victories of the Jewish people, regaining control of the promised land.
The Arabs have never accepted military defeat. Neither in 1948, 1952, 1967 nor in 1973. They teach their children that the formation of the state of israel was a catastrophe. And through military and political channels, the Arabs have done their best to revoke the international recognition of the Jewish statehood.
For all who believe in the bible, the sons of daughter of Jacob are the only true caretaker’s of Zion.
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this land to the land he promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Leave this place, you and the people you brought up out of Egypt, and go up to the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants
I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land.
See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land the Lord swore he would give to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—and to their descendants after them.”
Stand united with the Jewish people in her times of trouble. Rebuke all who wants to remove or replace the borders around the state of Israel.
This kind of worship will be pleasing to the Messiah. Yeshua is the Messiah. We can expect no one else to return and rescue us.
