Canaanites, Jebusites Welcomed But No Jews

Have you read this news item?

The one about the Arabs beating us to Jerusalem?  Being here before us because they claim (don't laugh!  okay, laugh) to be either Canaanites or Jebusites or whatever?

I dealt with this in another blog of mine.

But the quick point I want to make here, at "From the Hills of Efraim", is did you notice that now the Biblical account is, well, kosher?  They stamp their feet and yell and scream that we have no Divine right to Eretz-Yisrael, that our history of Tabernacle and Temples, kings, priests, prophets and scribes is worthless and they even hook up with antisemties and suggest we are Khazars.  Don't quote Scripture to us, they insist.  It has no relevance.

But when they need the Bible, well, move out of the way, for here come the Canaanites and Jebusites.
