Reader comment on item: Pretending There's a Country Called "Palestine"

Submitted by Adam the Scot. (United Kingdom), Jan 23, 2009 at 17:54

Where is Palestine? Does it exist? Of COURSE it does. I have Just finished reading the Lord of the Rings ( single volume trilogy edition ) by JRR TOLKEIN.....NOW in that, there are many maps to assist the reader in understanding the layout of the mystical land of middle earth and the hardships faced by the two tiny people ARA and BIC as they endeavour to get rid of that pesky ring. So.....point is.... if you look very closely at these maps, you will find that "Palestine" is clearly in Middle Earth and shares a border with the Mines of Moria. Unfortunately, at the time of the story, it is ruled by ruthless creatures known as Urak Hai, who are a sort of extreme version of the cowardly Ork and are intent on the domination, by fair means or foul, of all of Middle Earth. Fortunately within this world of Ork occupied lands, there is one free state, Roisraelhan, whos heroic riders fight on................................. Love it!
