in response to reader comment: Harrak, you have to try a little harder!

I do agree that Israel is a place that The Jews builtand maintained for nearly 3000 years. Israel is secure and safe under the Jewish authority, that spot in the Middle East was dead and in ruin under the Islamic occupation but look at it now; beautiful & democratic. But please do not start quoting blindlessly from the bible, I DO NOT AGREE that the Jews are the chosen people of GOD nor that Israel is somekind of HOLY promised land. GOD does not make international land boundaries nor does he protect the Jewish citizens from Palestinian rockets. It is the Jews themselves that have to take their state at heart and safe guard it from its enemies, Yahweh gave you life and you shall not ask anything more in return, the rest is on your own, proclaiming God phophecies doesn't help for the survival of your entity. The bible puts the beginning of mankind & earth about 6000 years ago, well recent archeological finds unearth a sunken city off the coast of India that carbon dates itself to at least 9000 years old and lets not start talking about dinosaurs.
