    So what if I write (i.e. receive from god) a holy book which mentions Jerusalem at least once in every sentence, how long would it take for you guys to vacate the premises so that me and my followers can move in? I mean I would be entitled to Jerusalem, right? After all God promised it to me and it's not like we can argue with the almighty. I would of course feel sad for all those people who live there right now, but they can always find a new place to live. And if anyone denies my right to Jerusalem I will call them jealous kids whose religious books give them an inferior claim to the city. BTW Ben, it's entirely possible to be a ethnic Jew and an Atheist.
