by Tony Norfield | Economics of Imperialism | Palestine really was the Promised Land. So much so that it was promised to three different groups within a couple of years. The promises were made by British imperialism, a real world power, not by an imaginary deity in a book of very dubious provenance. What made the promises remarkable was that they were about a land which, at the time, the British neither possessed nor controlled. But imperial arrogance was a commodity in ample supply when the promises were made, and it has not become scarce in the years since.
