Dear Mike McKenna Let us not degenerate into clumsy attempts at humour ("God as real estate agent.."), nor back door antisemistism (why else bring in Bernie Madoff). If you really read the Old Testament you would see that it is permeated with references to the Promised Land. No, I am not a Bible thumping redneck, I do believe the Palestinians should have a land of their own which was what the 1948 UN partition plan was all about. Unfortunately the Arabs didn't agree and they lost. They have had a number of chances since to come to an accord but each time they blew it. You know why? because they have never really come to terms with the right of the Jewish people to even a part of the land of Israel.
