    Feels like were're in 48, reading the Declaration of Independence for the 1st time.
    The law is 70 years late, although better late than never.

    If it wasn't the month of Av I'd congratulate You brother.

    Unlike the Dutch people, Jews originated in the land of Israel.

    Yes they were once some sects of the Canaanites, and the bible says EKE: Your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite.

    Lets face it, anyone from Judea was known as a jew. Good now that that is settled we can take Judeo off of Christian.

    Q. Why do You think Arabs call it the "Jewish Desert"?


    Sahara Yahudin -صحراء يهودا‎

    The Judaean Desert or Judean Desert (Hebrew: Midbar Yehuda, both Desert of Judahor Judaean Desert; Arabic: Sahara Yahudan) is a desert in Israel and the West Bank that lies east of Jerusalem and descends to the Dead Sea. It stretches from the northeastern Negev to the east of Beit El, and is marked by terraces with escarpments.

    Of course YHWH gave South Africa to the Boers. They said so.

    Canaan is the ancient name for the land of Israel. The Torah gave Abraham the land of Canaan, which in some cases stretched from southern Syria to the Eastern Sinai and, in other Torah references, was only a small strip hugging the Mediterranean. Under the leadership of Joshua the Israelites conquered Canaan, which had previously been divided into seven city states. Today, the land of Canaan is known as Palestine, Eretz Yisrael and Israel.
