Apparently, these people are forgetting that East Jerusalem and it's holy cites were formally annexed by Jordan in 1950. Jordan lost this territory when they shelled Jerusalem in the 1967 war (after being asked by Israel to stay out of the conflict) and were subsequently pushed out in the Israel response. There never was a "Palestinian" nation containing Jerusalem. When the Arabs controlled East Jerusalem, Jewish access to holy places was forbidden, and Jewish holy sites were desecrated. Talk about the "return" of East Jerusalem to Arab control after all of Iberia is given back to the Moors. After all, the Muslims ruled Spain and Palestine at the same point in history, so why one without the other?
