JD Jr: In the Old Testament there are 35 different passages that elude to the borders of Israel that God promised to the Jewish people forever. They only have today about one-tenth of what’s been promised to them. You don’t see a decline in the population as a problem to the fulfillment of God’s plan do you?
WM: Jimmy, Jewish history has always been a series of up ands downs. But its always been forward and always been up. In our history has gone through horrific periods not only in the recent past century but earlier. It’s been tough remaining who we are as a people with our own religion, our culture, our language, our customs and our belief that we do and should belong back in the land of Israel for the future redemptive process in which eventually even we’ll see a rebuild Jerusalem and a Temple. I don’t think many of us believe that will happen in a day. I don’t even think Rome was built in a day. But Jerusalem is taking a little bit longer.
