    .... One Cypriot woman (part of an ultra elite ruling family) once told me the culture is different, they don't understand our attachment to our land, where we planted crops and buried our dead over generations. Stephanie, your family has been in Texas, for, at most 400 years, and your originally something else... We're not originally anything else. We have been on our land for thousands of years, under different occupiers, often inter-marrying with whatever nearby tribe or culture conquered us, but never being expelled from our land, we were of the original Jews more than 2000 years ago, some of them left, we stayed. In Arabic we have an expression for Jews, 'the cousins'. But we mostly didn't cling to Judaism! And now 2000 years later we're being punished for it and told that our attachment to our and is unreasonable.
