    The fact that they use the Jewish word for the city - Yerushalayim - rather than the Muslim and Arabic "Al-Quds", says it all. Kind of like saying "Arab East Al-Quds" when they claim ownership of the city. Everybody knows Jerusalem is a Jewish/Hebrew word, and the Arabs are late-comers and usurpers. This kind of idiocy will gain no traction in the U.S., and a campaign against "Judaizing Jerusalem" is 100% certain to be blocked by our anti-hate crime laws. Jerusalem is a Jewish city, and the Muslims have got to rid themselves of the notion that every place where Mohammed stopped to blow his nose becomes a Moslem holy place, to the total exclusion of other religions that were there first. You see this kind of crap in the conversion of churches to mosques in the Arab world, building mosques on top of Hindu temple sites in India, etc. These "claims" first for "sharing", then for total control, are how they expand and dominate other religions whereever they encounter them. This must end.
