    because of historical ties to the land, then where do we draw the line? give the U.S. back to the hundreds of indigenous tribes? break up Russia? China? give South America and Australia back to the indigenous? i think i heard the Caanites want Israel back also. so do the Babylonians. i say this to make people understand that nation building and identity construction are political process that have a place in history. it's fine that Jews are in power now and have the land, let's just call it for what it is and not mention 2,000+ year old history. that is too far in the past.
