Uganda

 


The חתם סופר על התורה (Parshas ויחי P 245) quotes the כוזרי who says that לעתיד לבא (in the very near future) מצרים will be part of ארץ ישראל.

At the ברית בין הבתרים, Hashem promised the land to Avraham Avinu extending the border all the way to נהר מצרים

The תרגום ירושלמי & the תרגום המיוחס לר' יונתן בן עוזיאל translate מנהר מצרים - מנילוס מצרים (Breishis 15-18) The Ibn Ezra, Rashi & others agree with the Targum. The border of Eretz Yisroel will extend all the way to the Nile. A

If ארץ ישראל will border the entire length of נהר מצרים/ Nile (4000 miles) then Uganda will also be part of ארץ ישראל.

*Perhaps Herzel wasn't so wrong for willing to settle the State of Israel in Uganda.

The רדב"ז and other Rishonim argue and claim נהר מצרים can't be the Nile. (They seem to hold נהר מצרים is possibly The Gulf of Suez) B


* Those without a sense of humor need not get excited it's only a joke.
