Hi Elan,

Cheers for taking the time.

With regards to lands in the past and who 'owns' it: If the Jews conquered the lands of Cannan by the sword, then in turn were conquered by Romans swords, did the land then transfer over, via conquest, to the Romans???

Jews may like to think they where exiles after the Romans conquered them, but that is just, imho, a selfish excuse for still owning the lands as they just seem not to have understood that being conquered by another (Romans) means (when they seem to know darn well what conquering another is) they no longer are the owners of the lands.

It the Palestinians can trace their roots to the Romans who conquered the Jews, they have as much 'right' to the lands as another conquer of those lands before or after.

Regs, Shaggy
