Johnboy: I think there is a fundamental misunderstanding of Jews (tribes of Israel) and its relationship to Israel. There is no separation of Hebrew (Jew) and the land of Israel. It is a religion unlike any other that it's religion is tied to a homeland. In fact we are the only religion to my knowledge where the religion and the land are intertwined. You can not be a Jew (tribal member) and not long to be and live in Israel in your soul. Arabs (Muslims) have no connection to land outside of Mecca and Medina where they visit but DO NOT live. The Vatican is a Mecca of sorts to Catholics but Christians do not go there to live. Israel is the land of the Children of Israel and it's homeland. and the Arabs are foreign occupiers there and throughout the Middle East having willfully destroyed the indigenous cultures there. They are a foreign power, the true occupiers! Judea and Samaria, the so called "West Bank" (a vulgar term to refer to Arab occupied Israel) is Israel and is not Jordan.
