I don't think that works. The land's delicate stomach goes back to 
Kenaani days, even before Yehoshua, so it can't be the result of 
"kedusha rishona" or "kedusha shniya".  Before, after, and in between 
it's still EY.

PS to previous message:

Also "Erets asher H' Elokecha doresh osah" was said in the present 
tense, before Yehoshua.
