    Forgot to say how ridiculous it is to suggest that the West Bank should be owned by the Israeli state just because it is called 'Judea' in the Bible. When radical Islamists justify their barbarious assaults by quoting selected Qu'ran verses, Western pundits never fail to point that mixing politics with religion is antithetical to our free political systems. Beck himself has made Islam a target for criticism because of its supposedly bellicose outlook and its alleged animosity to secular political systems. But here he is justifying settlement building - a provocative action, one that is not conducive to peace and stability for Israel and her neighbors - by quoting the Bible. US conservatives are more similar to Islamists than they'd like to admit.
