Remembering Gush Katif on Tisha b'Av

(nablopomo day 20)

How can we hope to rebuild the Beit HaMikdash if we are not allowed to build in all the land?  This is a reminder of the terrible mistake the Israeli government and the army made the day after Tisha b'Av, 2005.  Their entire attitude was wrong.  Jews do not expel Jews.  Jews fight for their land, and conquer swamps, diseases, and poverty--and build a holy civilization and life.

At the very end, the sign in Hebrew reads: "We will remember, and we will return.  Gush Katif."
