---- "how about this. who CARES? why are we all so caught up in this tiny group of people's history/mythology/who they are, etc. maybe if we stopped caring so much there could be a different focal point and israel wouldn't dominate world politics."----
Well, to a certain extent I agree with your feel here. Many people are often way to busy with other peoples and thing (whether they are Jewish or any other people), in an abnormal way, and are to much focused on politics and the external in general. That said, when you happen to be "a believer" (like myself), to which the Tanakh and B'rit Chadashah ("N.t.") are important, Judaism, the "Holy Land", etc. naturally become important "aspects" as well. Just keep things in balance...

No, I'm not sick of the Bible neither do I "justify my existance through the Bible".
