It always seems to be that when it comes to solving the problems of The Middle East, that we get bogged down over Jerusalem. So maybe we should start there first.
Since both sides claim it for themselves and some don't even want to talk about sharing the city, think about this: suppose Jerusalem wasn't in either state of Israel or in Palestine. Suppose it wasn't Israeli or Palestinian. Where would it be? How about a sovereign state. The State of Jerusalem. It could have it's own government and it could be the Capitol of Israel, historically and eternally forever, and the Capitol of Palestine historically and forever, but not in either. Jerusalem City, Jerusalem. Would that solve the problem? Or am I a dreamer? Who was it that said " you can fool some of the people some of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time"? Whomever, this isn't meant to fool or deceive, but to start the conversation once and for all. -dP
