"... they only started claiming post `48, while it had beloged to the Jews for 3300 years. You all will probably jump on th evalidity of this last statement - but hey, the truth hurts." [Phil] - No it doesn't hurt, it's probably also true but it remains nonsense to argue who possessed which square meter first a few thousand years ago and who WAS for how long away, biblical claims, etc. Those folks are all dead already and won't claim anything. RIGHT NOW, there a several million Palestinians and Jews living here and both people developed rights to the land over the last few generations. We can't make the Palestinians leave nor can they make us leave from undisputed areas. Since both failed to share and integrate, the land needs to be devided to satify both (valid)claims.
