Who Owns the Land in Israel/Palestine?

Who owns the land in Israel/Palestine?

Listen to these thoughtful words from a Jewish rabbi:

"But when we shift the question from "which people has a right to this land?" to "how do we extend full human and civil rights to all who live on the land?" we discover a decidedly different Biblical vision. We lift up the God who tells us that all humanity is made in the divine image--and that when push comes to shove, the land does not ultimately belong to any of us, but to God and we are strangers upon it."

Rabbi Brant Rosen
