This Land is Whose?

I usually avoid writing about the Israeli-Arab quagmire. But since I stuck a verbal toe in via today’s earlier post, I might as well bring this stunning — and too true — Nina Paley video forward from where I dropped it in a recent comment section.

(H/T. blog)

For you young things, the song is the theme from Exodus, a Very Big Movie about the resettlement of Israel after WWII.

And here’s Paley’s “Who’s Killing Who” guide.

    The video about sums things up.

    I saw Exodus when it first came out, and at the time I had no real knowledge of the history or background about that region of the world, so I didn’t have a grasp on things that I do now.

    With the Muslims continued assaults and threats to wipe Israel off the face of the map, I keep wondering that if Israel has their back to the wall and are about to overrun, will they do a modern day Masada, and set off all their nukes in country? (long run on sentence).

    My national geographic 1.0 DNA results has my ancestors coming from this very region. From around 40,000 to 50,000 years ago.

    I’m waiting for the results of the 2.0 DNA testing results which I should have in about a month.

    Would we care if they weren’t fighting each other?

    “Would we care if they weren’t fighting each other?”

    Well, yes, we would – there’d be no excuse for us to get into it.

    OTOH, should we care if they DO fight each other? Anyone (or any region) fighting for that long doesn’t want peace.

    On the bright side, they never wonder what they’re going to do today.
