Buy a piece of Jewishness

Posted By Obadiah Shoher On May 26, 2007 @ 9:28 pm In economy | 27 Comments

How much would you pay for a plain golden ring? Not much. How about your wedding ring? Much more.
How much would you pay to save a child (millions of them die in Africa from malnutrition and hunger)? Zero. Your child? Everything.
How much for ramshackle real estate located among the Arabs? Nothing. East Jerusalem [1]? Not quite everything, but the investment makes sense. The investment is safe: even if the Knesset decides to give Jerusalem to the Palestinians, the Israeli government will reimburse Jewish owners the cost of the real estate. The investment is profitable: if a Palestinian state is created without East Jerusalem, real estate prices in the Jewish city whose near-term future is suddenly settled, will soar. The investment is critically important to the Jewish nation: a Jerusalem populated by Arabs is not a Jewish capital. The investment is politically welcome: even Olmert and Jerusalem’s mayor Lupoliansky openly speak of the demographical problem in the city. Elad, a Jewish organization that buys houses from Arab in East Jerusalem, is a semi-government agency.

There is every reason to invest in East Jerusalem.
