The essence of the conflict. To pro-Palestinians, Israel stole the land and is colonising it. To pro-Israel, Jews have returned to their land. In a country such as Canada when someone speaks about "MY COUNTRY" one can't be sure if they are speaking about Canada or the country they came from. So it is with Jews too. "My country" can mean Canada or Israel where a Jew will always have roots. Even a loyal Jewish Canadian prays in the direction of Israel. Jews returned to Israel. If non-Jews don't like it, the hell with them.
