The Holy Land

Does no one else find it ironic that the Holy Land, the Land of God, the land where Judaism, Christianity and Islam originate – doe no one else find it ironic that these lands have perhaps the longest, bloodiest and most brutal histories of warfare, turmoil and conflict? It just seems strange to me – that a land so ‘holy’ and ‘divine’ would in turn be a land dominated by violence and destruction. One would think that Holy Land would be a peaceful place, no?
