    'This Land Is My Land' - animated short about history of Palestine

    'This Land Is My Land'



    Sometimes history is so absurd that it’s funny.

    “This Land is Mine,” an animated short film about the history of Palestine by cartoonist and animator Nina Paley, has resurfaced in the wake of the latest war in Gaza. The short displays all of the tribes, empires, and countries that have claimed the region at some point in history killing each other in chronological order. The result — set to an exaggerated, Frank Sinatra-style theme song — is a ruthless but hilarious historical timeline of the fate of one of the world’s most contested regions.

    Why would anyone want that land? Is there something there we don't know about?

    Bravo! That is exactly how I look at it all. Humans can be so ridiculous.

    Holy Sand?


    ohwait there is the oil aspect. but that is a relatively recent part of the equation. Before that I think it's because that area forms the land route between Africa to/from Eurasia and its near where agriculture first took root due to the plants native to the area.
