I keep hearing all the controversy over various peoples with ancient claims to land. this is truly geting to be rediculous.
the palestinians want this part - the isrealis want this. the moors want spain and so on and so forth. then they all start bombing each other - mainly innocent civilians.
now I hear - the palestinians are upset because sharon visited the temple mount that is the holiest site in judaism - that was destroyed by muslims and a mosque was built slap on top of it.
this is truly crazy.
whats next - are the vandals going to want germany back? how about the romans wanting england back?
it does not end - the timeless shuffle of various occupations of lands.
well - I guess it comes down to who has it and fights to keep it and wins. I am thinking more and more - we need to just step back and let people battle it out. and if someone wants something - like a temple or oil or whatever - then its only yours as long as you can keep it while you are alive.
this seems to be what the radical islamic groups in the middle east and elsewhere are driving towards isnt it? well - heck lets just get it over with and go to it.
otherwise we all get to live daily worrying what little thing is going to happen.
