Ethnic cleansing. If Israel annexed Jerusalem, then the population who reside there (both Jew and Arab) are now Israeli and therefore have rights of citizenship and residence. If Israel does not have the legal right (because that part of Jerusalem is part of Palestine) then it does not have a say in who lives there. It is the Palestinian legal system that decides. Israel cannot have it both ways unless this is part of a policy of Ethnic Cleansing and this is being used to exclude Arabs from Jerusalem. I suggest any open minded reader have a look at "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" by Ilan Pappe (you can get it from the library) and make up your mind. While you are at it, have a look at Righteous Victims buy Benny Morris. Before anyone Arab accuses me of bias, both authors are Jewish and respected for their work.
