The unholy land

Palestine is called the Holy Land, and Jerusalem is said to be one of the holiest places on earth.

Bah.

The very idea of a "holy land," a piece of territory that is especially desirable because God touched it or promised it to me is idolatry. Jerusalem is "the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." (Rev. 11) Jerusalem is a blessing to no one.

I see Palestine and Jerusalem as geopolitical equivalents of the One Ring. They cause great evil by the covetousness they attract, and all who touch them are cursed and marked by them.
