Mount Nebo was where Moses saw the "the promised land" and died. The tomb of Moses has never been discovered, but it's supposedly somewhere nearby a little ways down the hill.

So, in many ways this is where it all started - with God the real estate agent promising land to one "chosen" people ignoring the people who were already in those lands. Following the 2nd European War of the last century, the British once again played God in the 1940's when they gave up and went home leaving the current on-going conflict for land and water West of the Jordan river to the Sea.
