Jews may buy land in Zion

Throwback Thursday, from the San Francisco Chronicle, 1908.

There was no Palestinian state in this territory in 1908- it  was in the control of the Ottoman Turks. In 1908 the Sultans private estates went on sale, and a Jewish group negotiated their  purchase. The Chronicle reports:

"There is little doubt that the Jews will soon once more be in possession of the site of ancient Jericho, the land which was the first fruits of their conquest in Canaan"

This is not "stolen land".  The Jewish people have come home, and are home to stay.

you people have gotta see this. they're now trying to tie in what happened in Dallas to Israel. pay special close attention to the facebook post featured in the article. my wife, who is not only black but also a retired police officer found this laughable especially with her having been to Israel recently
