    If a Jew can't live in Eastern Jerusalem, can an Arab not live in Western Jerusalem (there are over 120,000 Arabs in west Jerusalem). and if a Jew can't live in the west bank and Gaza, do the 2 million Arabs need to leave Israel? The Jews were a majority in Jerusalem for hundreds of years, except for the 19 years between 1948 & 1967, the years that Jordan expelled the Jews and then were prohibited from entering houses of worship, cemeteries, etc. regardelss of the 1949 Armistice Agreement (the synagogues were destroyed and the cemeteries were desecrated. And just curious what do the Arabs need the mount of olives for, they need to expel the Jews that were buried there for millennia too? Jordan building a road thru the cemetery and using the tombstones to pave the roads and for latrines were not enough?) you talk about Israeli occupation of eastern Jerusalem, but only use the 19 years of the last century to back up your statements. Peace can not mean expulsion of Jews from their historical homeland. The Arabs were expelled from their homes but need to demand the Arab governments who ordered them to leave for compensation and not from Israel.
