    Carlo Strenger aptly reminds us ?that Herzl believed in cooperation; he believed in multiculturalism long before the word was even invented. And yes, Herzl believed in diplomacy: He didn't think that the Jewish state should or could be in constant confrontation with its environment.? Herzl also wrote THIS about Jerusalem: ?We shall exterritorialize Jerusalem, so that it will belong to nobody and yet everybody; and with it the Holy Places, which will become the joint possession of all believers ? a great condominium of culture and morality.? (Herzl?s Diaries, May 7, 1896) We might do well bearing this in mind when ? hopefully soon! ? negotiations with the Palestinians will be resumed. Translated into today?s language, Herzl?s vision may be expressed thus: Let Jerusalem be united, open to all and belonging to all its inhabitants. Let Jerusalem be the capital of both the State of Israel and the State of Palestine. Let us turn Jerusalem into a modern symbol of Peace, without walls or barbed wire. That surely is how Herzl would have loved to see it.
