MK Moshe Gafni at the Haaretz Conference: "we have a cushion" for Eretz Yisrael - I am talking about Eretz Yisrael within the Green Line - and that is the Tanakh!"
It is Gafni's right, and even obligation to present his political world view and identify with the positions of the left, but his innovations in the realm of Tanakh need to be analyzed. Is the Tanakh just a cushion for the parts of Eretz Yisrael within the Green Line? Maybe it would be worth opening a Tanakh to see that the overwhelming majority of what it talks about of Eretz Yisrael is specifically outside of the Green Line - City of David and Hebron, Shchem and Beit El, Shilo and Bethlehem, and many other cities found in the mountainous regions of Eretz Yisrael. Is the Tanakh not a cushion for the inheritance areas of Benjamin, Yehuda, Ephraim and Menashe?
Without getting into political questions, there is place to wonder whether the failure of MK Gafni is in the learning of Tanakh or in the learning of geography, and when he canceled the core curriculum learning in the Haredi sector, did he perhaps not take it one step too far.
