Anyone who is thinking clearly knows, peace without sharing Jerusalem is not feasible. Palestinians from the north and south West Bank unable to visit, shop, worship, see a doctor in Al Quds? Palestinians forced to navigate the rugged roads of Wadi Naar to go from Ramallah to Bethlehem...what should take 1/2 hour, takes 2 hours now. Sharing a unified Jerusalem would be beakon of light to the entire world.
