Why is palestine important to all Muslims?

Palestine is very important to Muslims. Palestine is the home to many Musims, including my own parents. I am Arab American and just as important my American pride is, so is my Palestine pride. Everyone has a natural love and respect for their homeland.
It is also said that Day of Judgment will happen, once Musims are freed of this occupation, in regards of Isreal's hold on Paalestine.
