You state the only time Jerusalem wasn't open was when the Arabs controlled it? Umm, maybe every history book I read is false then. As when the Moslems (Arabs who came from Arabia) and their Caliph Omar took over Jerusalem, they maintained it as a freedom place of worship and protected the rights of Christians and Jews to practice there. As a European, I hate to admit it, but when the Crusaders took over Jerusalem, didn't they expel the Moslems and Jews from Jerusalem and destroy their holy sites? Your recollection of history is very short indeed. The only time the Arabs closed it was when Israel decided to take more than offered to it by the Parititon and took 23 percent more of the territory in 1948. Yes, Jerusalem should be shared by all three faiths.
