Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky

Emes Le-Ya'akov Al Ha-Torah (Exodus 12:2 n. 17):

"It is incumbent on us to understand that the establishment of the state of Israel in our day, after the the great destruction and despair that overtook the remnant, and given the desperate and destroyed status of Russian Jewry, God caused the establishment of the state of Israel in order to strengthen the connection to Judaism and to sustain the link between the Jews in exile and the Jewish nation."

Yet, "When the Satmar Rebbe's book Vayoel Moshe was published, explaining how the Three Oaths apply to the state, Reb Yaakov came to the Rebbe and said, 'The Rebbe wrote that it would be worth writing the sefer even to change the mind of one Jew. Well, I’ve come to tell the Rebbe that he was yotzei already with me. I changed my mind after reading the sefer."' (The Rebbe, p. 509)
