For many years we've witnessed the inequities surrounding the capital of Jerusalem and the separateness of the inhabitants - despite the many generations of their presence and the suffering and turmoil since the times Mandatory Palestine. Denial of the importance of Jerusalem to either the Jewish people or to the Palestinians does not begin the path for reconciliation and rejects the mantra that we're eternal enemies. We are not and history proves so. There should be freedom of worship, access and sovereignty for places which are Jewish remaining with Israel and areas predominantly Muslim under Palestinian sovereignty (perhaps a duplex ownership at the Temple Mount). As both current leaders state, Jerusalem should remain united and viewed as a whole capital, yet administered locally and collaborative as it's a sacred Holy Place. Then peace is most likely to become reality.
