Whose Land Is This?

Long before modern Zionism, various nationalities and religions have fought us Jews for this Land.  No other geographic location has been the center of such controversy and battles.  This isn't new; it has been going on for thousands of years. 

Every century, every millennium, every few decades new enemies rise against the Jewish People.  The Greeks, Persians, Romans, Crusaders....

This is G-d's Land, and G-d gave it to the Jewish People.
א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, בְּהַר סִינַי לֵאמֹר. 1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying:
ב דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, כִּי תָבֹאוּ אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי נֹתֵן לָכֶם--וְשָׁבְתָה הָאָרֶץ... 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye come into the land which I give you...
