Land of Israel

Israel today (including the West Bank) occupies most of the land that it did during biblical times.  Many proposals were made for locating a State for the Jewish people elsewhere, even in Kenya Africa.  In the end, the social-historical importance of the Holy Land and Jerusalem to the Jewish people has proven essential to the Jewish Identity and it's rebuilding.  Especially since approx. 1/3 of the world's Jewish population was destroyed as civilians during the last world war.
