    From the spelling I gather you're maybe not here very long or need a refresher course in Hebrew. No-one was proposing giving away Jerusalem. The proposal was sharing it, or just putting our administrative capital somewhere else and leaving it to be what it was supposed to be: holy. Maybe you missed this paragraph in the article: "Would this mean that Israel is giving up on the Jewish connection to Jerusalem? Of course not. The religious, historic and emotional connection will remain, precisely like it did during 2,000 years of exile, which did not blur that link. Does this mean that the two sides are relinquishing their historic rights or sovereignty over the city? Of course not. " Someone here suggested Sderot for Israel's capital. Not a bad idea at all! What do Palestinians propose as their alternative capital until we can trust each other enough to share Jerusalem?
