"We've got a double booking problem in the Holy Land. Jews say you promised it to them. Palestinians make the same claim..." 19 August 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000075

God, looking stern, with His hair wafting in a celestial breeze, is centre stage sitting on a throne holding a large volume. Two supplicants stand before him; the first tells God that He has made a double booking, that the Jews and the Palestinians both believe they were promised the Holy Land. when God wonders whether they have heard of the notion of sharing, the second supplicant chips in and says that that is the other problem. Refers to the current removing of Jewish settlers from the Gaza strip so that it can be settled by Palestinian refugees, a move being promoted by Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon.
