Why ? What it is so special about Jerusalem for the palestinians ? The mosque ? This can be moved brick by brick to anywhere Abbas wants to the West Bank ? What else the palestinians have in Jerusalem more than that ?! The palestinians stands to lose an independent state of their own because of a 'mosque' ! How illogical ! Israel accepted to live more than 20 years without Jerusalem, The name that every Jew remember in his prayers every day for 2000 years.
