Jerusalem is holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians. In addition it has been the home to Palestinian Muslims and Christians, as well as Jews, for over a millenium. Today we see Israeli Jews that have come from Europe and North America laying seige to those areas that have been home for the Palestinians. Coupled with this confiscation of Palestinian homes has been an Israeli campaign to move Palestinians into smaller and smaller ghettos. Then the Palestinians are striupped of their farms, livelihoods and human rights. Truth is being denied by Israel. Justice is only being applied to Jewish settlers. Israel has abused the original land grant from the United Nations. It is time for Jerusalem to become an international city governed by an impartial body representing all faiths and policed by the UN. It should not be the exclusive property of Israel.
