To Michael N - Have you ever read the Bible about Israel ? The Israelis are God's chosen people,even though all gentiles can be grafted in to be God's children, too, if they choose Jesus. The ONLY way to God is through Jesus in this church age. Jerusalem is God's chosen city, and it will never be diveded. He says "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you." You don't mess with Israel or Jerusalem.
