Some of the pro-Arab comments are so historically uninformed. The purchase of Machpelah in Hebron for the Jewish people is detailed clearly in Genesis. And Rachel is one of the Jewish mothers. Islam came on the scene two thousand years later and Jews were here in Israel long long before Arabs. There are so many lies spouted by Israel's enemies that are frankly breathtaking in their sheer audacity. Jews are home in their land and have every right to their inheritance. What is this nonsense about so-called "Palestinian" land? The only people who called themselves Palestinians before 1948 were actually Jews. It even says in the Koran that the land of Israel belongs to the Jews!
