Its funny to me that people think that anyone but Jews could claim the land! Even the muslims did not want it untill Israel made something of it. Hmm and is'nt it interesting that over 2500 years ago (i.e. before Muslims even were around) it was written that the "Jews" would be the ones to bring life back to the desert!
