This land is mine!

Here’s an interesting offering from American cartoonist, Nina Paley.

I’m not sure what the author’s intentions were in putting this 3-minute musical/cartoon/video together but it is certainly helpful in terms of the big picture – in terms of giving us an historical perspective as to who owns the land of Israel/Palestine.

It is curious, I think, that most Jews who claim ownership of the land do so on religious grounds (‘God gave us this land’, etc.) whereas the Torah itself makes clear that no one but God Himself owns it.

‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants.” (Leviticus 25:23)

If you want to check the identity of all the characters in the story, you’ll find them on Nina Paley’s blog.
