Nina Paley : I finally uploaded "This Land Is Mine" to my own YouTube account, because so many people keep linking to Youtube (someone else's upload is climbing towards half a million views). I prefer people use the Vimeo link: but if they insist on YouTube, maybe I can get some views back. Although the horse is out of the barn now.

ynderulets tyalikanky : That's secret of land's fertility. Blood.

UniversalPotentate : LOL! I love the elevator music outro That just made it PERFECT! XD

M. Djervig : This video cracks me up. Simply brilliant.

Frank Farmer : "Nobody owns the land.  We are merely the caretakers." - Chief Sitting Bull The entire Middle East has been a train wreck for countless centuries and it still is.  The US has no business even being involved.  We need to bring our troops home now - AND ALIVE!

Jefry Xavier : One of the best representation of stupidity I've ever seen...

Kaizoku Mugiwara : ive seen it a million times and i just cant get enough

drumphil00 : Why isn't this more well know?? If anything gets to the point more than this, I can't think what it is.

FroneRon : This should have more views!

Mousechris : Started off funny, then it actually got scary, and very very revealing of the current world.

bodiesofwater : I can see somewhat of an alternate version to this video. Wherein the cartoon figures don't lip-synch and are just killing each for the land. When the Angel of Death comes in, he is shown to be the only one singing, giving the strong impression that the land being claimed and fought over by those people was actually given by God to Death and not Man.

Ric Downing : Excellent video and song! Simple enough for All to understand what's really going on! It doesn't have to be this way anymore.

MrNderman SanityGaming : "so take my hand!!!", *cuts off hand

Jonassoe : You forgot the Achaemenid Persians!

Sigrune Merelles : Interesting to see how little time the area has been under jewish domination. And yet they are there now, causing so much misery and death....why? oh yeah, christian fundamentalists believe they must be there so that christ can return. I hope Jesus appreciates all the blood and death on his account

Kenneth Mitchell : 100th time, still get chills at the end

Fayelynn Cherrier : That's not Gods fault

MrGreenhornet : Religion should be forbidden .. the humans are just too stupid for it! A Muslim is not worth more than a Jew and a Jew is not worth more than a Christian. A Christian is not worth more than a Hindu a.s.o. And anyone who says his "race" is the master race, should be killed like the Nazis. He did not earn the beautiful life

ItsARandomEncounter : I love everything about the Angel of death in the end of the video. From its amazing design to the very sharp and nihilistic moral of the story.

JimIBobIJones : "God" as a justification for violence (regardless of whether you believe in him/her/it/him-her) has never been more than a thin veil to hide human-created agendas, although at times the perpetrators themselves do not always realise it.  The land in question has been fought over for so much of history in truth not so much for religion but because of its relative fertility and geography (just one example is that it has ideal access to the river Jordan) in a physically harsh region of the world.  Because most of us strive to be moral beings, there needs to be moral grounds to justify the taking of this land for a particular subsection of humanity whilst depriving all others of it. "God" is just a convenient excuse. Furthermore, the conflict over the "Holy Land" (for want of a better aggregate term) is in no way unique, though it does typify human conflict quite well. 

fighterace2688 : All that bloodshed for a stupid strip of worthless desert.

Nugzar Mikeladze : you missed persians(Achaemenid Empire) after babylonians

robotguy : Brilliant.

Dennis Falk : Brilliant "Sita" treatment of the Levant conflicts through the Ages- Nobody is innocent, regardless of which side, all because of greed, piety, and lack of humility. Keep up the good work, Nina! d.m.f.

Jason Rodriguez : Glorious death to Israel and Palestine .....

Frank M. Ortiz : This is what you get when you allow a small group of people (the elites) to control Earth's land and natural resources. It leaves the rest of us fighting for their scraps while they just sit back and laugh at us. Earth-Sharing is a viable and sustainable economic alternative that has worked around the world.

FroztByte Gamer : Millions of dead mothafakas all because they gave the wrong answer to the god question. Q: Do you believe in god? A: No. BAM, DEAD Q: Do you believe in god? A: Yes Q Do you believe in my god? A: No BAM, DEAD MY GOD HAS A BIGGER DICK THAN YOU'RE GOD!!! ~george carlin

ComradeSch : Excellently-made and an excent piece, but I have one nit-pick: The Israeli Defence Force does not use the AK-47. They use a variant of the AR-15 platform as their main infantry rifle.

geoforamorio : Κανένας δεν είναι είναι ιδιοκτήτης αυτής της Γης...This LAND has NO owner!!!

Mark Verdad : This saved me on my World History paper.

VideoBytes NL : Amazing!! When men war there are only losers.

Andrew Shaw : stone age man> Amorites (Caananites)> Egyptians> Assyrians> Jewish dynasties (David and solomon)> Babylonians/Persians> Hellenistic Greeks> Seleucids> Ptolemy's> Herodian Romans> ???End of the Samaritans???> Jewish revolt/Bar Kokhba VS Romans> Byzantines> Ummayad Muslims> Crusaders> Mamelukes> ???Fatimids???> Ottomans> British and Allies> British Mandate> Israel war of Independence> Yom Kippur/7 days war/Jordanian war> IDF VS Hezbollah/Hamas

Ric Downing : Excellent video and song! Simple enough for All to understand what's really going on! It doesn't have to be this way anymore.

blasterforever : Is there oil or gold or diamond in this land? Or something valuable worth to fight?

DeFuchtshaft Frederich : indeed it does.... but both sides would critices you and me for making fun of their "religious principles of killing" makes one wonder doesn't it !!!! on who their so called "god" really is

Elvira Sacco : when will there ever be PEACE?

spartanRS : Israelis dont use AK

Collin Miguel : THIS LAND IS MINE

mazardeus : This is more focused on entertaining our irrational obsession towards watching violence than informing the public on the reality of the conflict. Now that this is the 21st century, we need to expose the true reality: Israeli government is severely oppressing the Palestinian people and taking their land as days go by. It is near the end of 2016. We need to move on as a people to think about justice now.

Achraf Lamassu : Humans should learn how to share our only home which is earth and live on it all together in peace and harmony. Or die all together over some bunch of earth like stupid mourrons

Kochigachi : This is perfect song for Chinese in China.

mattbakerg : I think you missed the point entirely.

Beam Buzz : some guy is getting thousands of likes for this video without putting Nina Paleys name in the title is that allowed?

LimblessHermione : Putting aside the religious/political debates and just saying it's a wonderful bit of illustration and animation with a impressively iconic finish. A guy on my forums uses a gif of the Angel of Death as his avatar and he can't be asked enough where it's from.

staffis : Angel of Death. Monarch to the kingdom of the dead.

Willennium : So good. Well done! Rock on, Nina.

Arioch IV : I love the depiction of Azrael at the end here and in the Death of the Firstborn. It's just brilliant.

Lord Noobus : Was I the only one who noticed that with every death from 1:53 turns the ground more red?

Bru Swan : Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction. Blaise Pascal

El Comandante : all just to say'"Ha ha; This land is mine and not yours you stupid pigs."
