The power of logic

Elder of Ziyon has a great post up; it has clarified for me a lot of the internal conflict I often feel about Israel:

When it comes down to it, from a purely rational perspective, Jerusalem is just a piece of real estate, no more or less important than Gaza or Madagascar. Logical, rational Jews can look through the superstitious nonsense of tradition and coldly calculate the cost of keeping the eastern half versus the benefit of giving it up.

No, I haven't lost my mind: read the whole thing.
