The land was given to the Jewish people exclusively and eternally in Genesis.
In an exclusive op-ed for Israel Hayom, CUFI Founder Pastor John Hagee writes:
All real estate transactions go to great lengths to determine the identity of the original owner of the land to prevent a legal cloud from being over the title deed. The debate of who owns the land of Israel can be resolved in the same manner.
Who was the original owner of the hotly contested strip of real estate on the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea?
The answer is not Abraham, Isaac or Jacob. The correct answer is God almighty, the creator.
The title deed to Israel reads, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
