For centuries now, the Muslim's third holiest site is within Jerusalem, specifically the Dome of the Rock, which is for Judaism the Temple Mount site. The majority of Palestinians are Muslims and the Arab League states which support them, also have the direct association to this holy site. For Judaism today, the holiest site is the Western Wall adjacent to the mosque in the Old City. If the Palestinian parliament would be the same distance away from the mosque as the Israeli Knesset within Jerusalem is approximately the same distance, it seems feasible to share the capital city. Since Palestinians living in Eastern Jerusalem, now for centuries are the property owners despite the numerous jurisdictions over the centuries,(Trans-Jordanian, Ottoman, etc.) how cannot this be recognized as a legitimate claim? We can't oust them from the city. That's why discussions about borders must be immediately addressed.
