No we won't leave it alone. Read an uncensored Second Temple Period Jewish History book. Should give you a good idea why.
I do apologise for the delayed response, I never noticed your outburst here. Be it as it may, - please understand that what you call 'war crimes', some other enlightened individuals may call a process of liberation. How are we to judge which is correct? For that we may turn to Romans,- the victor writes the history! Need I say more?
You are within your rights "not to leave it alone", and please don't, - as it provides an ongoing entertainment, however, Christianity has no say in Jewish affairs. Simply put, - the Jews do not care for Christianity as much as you do. Well, - the Jews do respect Christian tenets, even though most Jews find them to simplistic.
Yes, the Holy Land is important to you, well,- but it is more important to Israelis, - they live there, you don't, and, therefore, you or your Christian beliefs have no say in any matter when it comes to Israel's way of doing things.
You, in your capacity as a devout Christian, are overstaying your own importance here.
The land of Israel is not a religious land, - Israel is a secular country that walks a fine line between Judaizm, as seen from religious perspective, and Zionism as a purely political endeavour. The uniqueness of Israel is that Zionism is inseparably connected to Judaism. I know that it is a complicated logical construct for you, but then again, you have never gone to a Jewish school. Any 1st grader attending a Jewish day school will be comfortable with the above.
Judaism is a liberal and progressive way of life, that can adopt to the changing of times without changing itself.
So, - let's leave religion to scholars and turn to law, ok?
