My tChristian Palestinian Grandparents lived in West Jerusalem prior to their oxidus in April 1948. They had Jewish and Muslim neighbors, and all lived normal lives under the British Mandate. They all had similar rights, and most importantly they were all friends. They worked together, they lived in the same building, they even breast fed each others children when a mother babysat for another. Good faith, civil equality, and similar political rights are liable to create new friendships. After all, Palestinains and Jews love the whole country from the river to the sea. Welcome to the new binational state, and who cares about symbols or the name of the country. Even the language can be integrated into a common one very easily, if the essence is built on strong foundation of equality.
