One of the joys of having put together the body of work "Planet Israel" is that, even though I am not posting very frequently, I still get about 30-60 hits a day. That's more than I got even when I was regularly posting! People searching for information on this settlement or that biblical site, are directed by Google to the blog. I'm glad to know I've been able to make some positive effect, however small.
And then there's people like Khalid:
Hmmmm. Interesting. You speak a language (Arabic) which is native not to the Levant. Your ancestors colonized this land after invading from the Arabian Peninsula. Assuming that you are not one of the few remaining Christians not driven into exile by the Palestinian Authority, you face Mecca, a city hundreds of miles from here, when you pray. Even in the very post you commented on, there are photographs of rock-solid archaeological proof of a Jewish presence on this land thousands of years before your ancestors arrived. Do you really think you are going to convince anyone by shouting? The past and the future of this land is Jewish. Deal with it or go home.
