Call me crazy, but to me "God's Land" = Planet Earth. But if they want to fight over a little strip of it...you know, OK...whatever.

Well, everyone else has mentioned physical issues so I will take a different route and give my opinion. As a Christian, I strongly believe the Jews are God's chosen people and what is occurring in the world today is a spiritual battle. The land of Israel was also prophesied to exist in the end times prior to Jesus' return and if you look through history, the Jews have been persecuted relentlessly and there have been several attempts to wipe them out as a people and nation.
Jesus said Christians would be hated for His sake. Because I believe the Jews are God's covenant people, they are hated as well. Also, because they must still exist as God promised, there is a spiritual battle to destroy the Jews. You destroy the Jews, you destroy God's plan.

You might want to read Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9, and make special note of WHO is saying that.
