Memories create nothing.
Israel was built by the hard work over many years of Jewish people working that land and building the infrastructure (political, economic, and material) necessary to create a country.
Between the end of the nineteenth century and 1948 Jews built that country from virtually nothing.
Blood. Sweat. And Tears.
Furthermore, it was not a matter of 2,000 year old memories, but the living experience of millions of Jews under the history of oppression, exile, and diaspora.
Assaf should consider moving to France.
