In reading these talkback messages, I am repeatedly surprised by the amount of posts based on some kind of religious doctrine. It is the year 2010, and yet some people in a supposed civilized Democracy continue to cling to ancient texts written by superstitious and ignorant people from thousands of years ago as a justification for their current horrific behavior. It's bad when the muslims do it, right? So what makes you think that it's ok when you do it? It's ironic that the same people that shrug off the real demands of modern international law and convention turn to those very same ideas when it suits them, such as the UN creation on Israel. Then, it's ok, but now, when those same laws are against you, suddenly you subscribe to a different set of rules. The other bit of irony is that people whose ancestry is based in Europe think that they somehow have more legitimate claims to the land than those who live there now and whose ancestors have lived there for generations.
