Stirring Up Flaming Coals

I know it sounds like I'm ranting sometimes. My new rabbinic hero, Rabbi Eliyahu Kitov, says, "I am well aware that he who touches upon this delicate subject [reminding Jews about the centrality of the Land of Israel to Judaism] is as one who stirs up flaming coals - he never goes away without being burned."

At the risk of being burned by flaming coals, I must ask. Doesn't it seem plausible to you that the reason dominion over Jerusalem (and Yehuda and the Shomron) is being threatened is because the majority of the world's Jews don't care enough to even live there?!
