Neither is the Mother. That is the point. So you missed the point of my comment to the article. My comment is not about an infant in a story, but about the MOTHER. Is it not written: Yerusalem is the Mother of us all. So to answer your question: NEITHER who are currently there desolating the land is the Mother, because the Mother, the NATION, is still in exile, patiently waiting for the right time to return home. We do this to protect our "baby", but only the REAL Mother would do this to protect the one she loves. As King Solomon clearly understood. This was my reply to the article, which is correctly titled: A funeral for the STATE of Israel, who is NOT the Mother of us all, and neither is the Palestinian State!
