Why must ppl sound like fundamentalist religious loonies? The religious argument only works if we are arguing our right to Israel to other Jews, and religious Jews at that. How is our beliefs relevant as an argument to a non-jew who does not believe in the Torah. The Torah is relevant to us because we hold it to be true. Muslims don't. And Christians see the new testament to supercede the tanakh, and say all Christians are the new Israel. Either way, using the Torah as a basis of argument is futile. And it makes us no better than a christian or Muslim telling us we are wrong because the Koran or the new testament say this or that. It's irrelevant to us because we are Jews and don't hold those books to be true. To Jews, Christians and Muslims; Leave religion out of it.
