    If Jews had accepted Ouganda as proposed after world war 2, would they have been able to do as good business as they are doing in the Holy Land? Settlers rape all laws about territories claiming the whole land is theirs. Piece after piece, they scrounge the Palestinian's places. Then come the investers and the promoters to build luxurious properties which they sell to very rich people who want to have a permanent or temporary lodging in the Holy Land. Real estate is good business everywhere in the world, but in the Holy Land, it's gold business. And in Jerusalem, it's diamond business. The Holy Land was supposed to be a place where endangered people could retreat. It's now the place where humble people are persona non grata and endangered. Only Mamon could do that. Only the race for big money could do that. Business is the key of the settlement problems. Money always is the first parameter one should think of to understand a conflictual situation.
