Taking Melman?s excellent idea one step further: Palestinians are constructing their parliament and government buildings in the suburb of Jerusalem, a separate municipality of Abu Dis, planning to include it within the borders of East Jerusalem once the settlement with Israel is reached and Palestine state established ?with Jerusalem as its capital?. On the other hand most of Israeli national buildings are located in the neighborhood of Givat Ram in West Jerusalem (the Knesset, Supreme Court, Government Campus, National Museum and National Library). Palestinians should leave Abu Dis as their capital and Israel should exclude Givat Ram from Jerusalem?s municipal borders. There are many plans of how to keep Jerusalem as an open city under two different sovereignties and united, federal municipality ((i.e. The Beilin ? Abu Mazen Document from 1995).
