A Land without a People & a People without a Land?

My magazine article this month focuses on exploding one of the more common myths about the Land of Israel.

This phrase was used in the 1800s and into the 1900s for the return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel. The Jews in the diaspora were a people without a land. The Land of Israel, it was said, was a land without a people.

We live in world where people pick and choose from the totality of the evidence to create narratives that favor their particular ethnicity, party or group. Very few are willing to take the time to gain a more comprehensive understanding. My intent is to present a helpful summary.

You can read my article and join in the discussion here.
