This Land Is Mine... or is it?

Maybe you have seen this cartoon video about
the history of Palestine/Israel in 3 minutes by Nina Paley.

The background music is The Exodus Song by Pat Boone.

The first and the last sloka show the thinking which is the crux of that ancient conflict, not just in this territory.

This land is mine
God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
To make this land our home
If I must fight
I'll fight to make this land our own.
Until I die this land is mine!

The first illusion here is that of a lasting property ("mine"). The aham mameti principle (I'm the controller and owner of objects) is the basis of ahankara, false ego, which keeps us in samsara.
God "gives" us some objects for our use and care for some time, latest "until I die", according to our karma, actions.
We're therefore not real owners and "our country" isn't our real home but just a rented one.
To fight over a rented home is another illusion. It's protection is the duty of the owner. We're supposed to take care of it as far as he wants us to do and not to destroy it. In case of danger we should inform him and maybe help him as far as we can but that's really all we can do. The result doesn't depend on us. When our karma to use some material object runs out, we can't use it anymore. Then we're frustrated because of attachment - the third illusion illustrated here.
Until and unless these illusions are removed, the conflict must continue, reactions taking their toll.
Abrahamic religions are unable to help us because they are narrow-sighted - they marginalized karma and reincarnation and have no idea about ahankara.
Another factor is the rajasic nature of the locals, making them easily irritated and violent. This can't change without a real spiritual progress removing impurities and false conceptions.
The story if King Ashoka is illustrative in this context. He was very belligerent but after one great battle he realized that all this ahankara-perpetuated killing is useless so he gave it up, becoming a Buddhist. Therefore Buddhism can be a first step to limit violence, which is a fuel of small and large conflicts up to wars. At least for me it was.
Wars are however a huge source of profits for military-industrial corporations who "run the show" thru their puppet politicians, banks and media. So long they wield their power over us, using various methods like "divide and rule", not much will improve.
It's up to us how much we allow it.
The change of consciousness and of behavior is the only real solution not just here but everywhere.
