"[A verse, Psalms 87:5, says,] And regarding Zion it will be said: A person and a person have been born in it; Gd will establish Zion above.

"Rabbi Meisha, grandson of Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi, explained: This refers to a person who is born in Zion, and a person who longs to see it.

"Abayye said: One of them [Israelis] is worth two of us [Babylonians]."

(Talmud, Ketuvot 75a)

Have a great day,
