A civilized world can't accept medieval concepst as biblical claim to a land. There is hystorical claim and the Jewish certainly have that claim because they had lived in the area, although it's impossible to tell what the exact boundries had been. But native people who over the centuries became Arabs also lived on tghe same land, any historian and anthropologist knows that, and some of them had lived there even before the Jews. It's impossible to tell, since 3000 or 4000 years ago they didn't keep records, how long defferent families have lived there, whose anccestors lived there 4000 years ago and whose "only" 700 years. That's why the biblical claim is bogus and unacceptable, and everything you insert religious argumentation into politics and diplomacy you stare disaster in the face. One thing is certain, a native of Leningrad who can claim a Jewish grandmother shouldn't have more rights than a local Arab whose family has lived on the land for many centuries.
