A Wise Saying – Part 131

” I am frequently asked if I have visited Israel, whereas yet, it is simply assumed that I have.  Well, I don’t travel.  I really don’t, and if I did, I probably would not visit Israel.  I remember how it was in 1948 and Israel was being established and all of my Jewish friends were ecstatic,  I was not.  I said: what are we doing? We are establishing ourselves in a ghetto, in a small corner of a vast Muslim sea…. I can’t help but feel that the Jews didn’t really have the right to appropriate a territory only because 2,000 years ago, people they consider their ancestors, were living there. ”   Isaac Asimov ( Editor’s Note: Asimov is considered to be one of the greatest science and science fiction authors of the 20th. Century.)
