    "All discriminated against East Jerusalemites. And all displayed the same tactlessness"(Akiva Eldar) Which East Jerusalemites are you talking about? I guess you wouldn't talk about the Jewish ones who were systematically starved out and ethnically cleansed by the Arab Legion and Palestinian Arab irregular forces in 1948? No, I guess you wouldn't talk about them because you don't wear your heart on your sleeve for them like you do for the Arabs, right Akiva? I guess according to you, they and THEIR descendants lost their rights to become East Jerusalemites just because the Arabs kept them out of East Jerusalem for 19 years between 1948 and 1967. And according to you, Israel HAS TO concede that East Jerusalem has become irrevocably Arab ONLY by that single act of Arab conquest in 1948. And even Israel's 1967 re-conquest of East Jerusalem does NOT count even though that re-conquest occurred in a defensive war which Israel did NOT want to wage against Jordan ... So that's why you and your political allies see red (pardon the pun) every time that Jews try to return and settle in East Jerusalem, the city which always THROUGHOUT HISTORY had Jewish inhabitants and for at least the last 150 years had MAJORITY Jewish inhabitants. But all that counts for NIL for you people ... Sickening!
