Israel & Machshavah

I try not to prophecize or interpret prophecy, given the traditional Jewish attitude to bearers of prophecy these days, but I have to say when you compare the creativity and sheer amount of Jewish thought which takes place in Israel versus what which takes place in the diaspora, one might be convinced of Rav Kook's predictions about the Jewish people in the Diaspora vs. the Jewish people in their own Land & State.

Because the Jewish people are free in their own country they can actually do serious machshavah and philosophy. Even though there are as many Jews, more money, and more Jewish studies departments in the diaspora.
