“Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.” — Deut. 6:3, King James Bible, Authorized Version
“A land that floweth with milk and honey” appears more than 20 times in the Bible, the most sacred book of the Jewish people. It means, according to most biblical commentators, that the Land of Israel is overly abundant in all the good things in the world — from fruit to cattle and sheep and everything in between. Alas, jumping to modern times and the State of Israel of the new millennium, one finds that Israeli governments over the years have systematically granted all that good in the land to a handful of close associates for an incredibly low price, if any.
