One can not deny that terrorism is practiced by both sides. As long as Hamas believes god gave them the land and as long as Israel believes god gave them the land, I do not see a difference between a group and a state for that matter. The UN should sanction both Israelis and Palestinians to starvation and give them 6 months to learn how to live together orelse, there is no place for both radicals in the modern world.

As for the term Holy Land..for me, the Holy Land is Canada. The rest for me can not be more than a tourism attraction...how can one call a place like ***** ****** or **** or ****** holy! Holy is where the human being is respected, not kidnapped, killed, impoverished and marginalized..that is the real holy...

The public realizes this reality..the politicians undermine it. The proof!! go to those places called including Israel and offer people a Canadian Residence, they will run for it like the TGV*. Given that reality, we can say Canada is a holy land. Those who move to the so called holy land do so only because it is better than where they come from..I never seen a Canadian, Belgian or Swedish going for the holy...American yes..because the social security in America is in some cases worse than that of the holy..
