The UN resolution 194 that outlined the partition of Palestine, set out that Jerusalem was to be a 'corpus separatum', an international city that should be administered by an international body, as being sacred to all three religions. The wars of 1948 and 1967 saw the Israeli government taking over whole swathes of what were Arab areas - Katamon, Mamilla, Bak'aa, and then the whole of East Jerusalem, which is considered illegally annexed under international law.. The Knesset is built on appropriated Palestinian land, as are most of the settlements of East Jerusalem. Even the Jewish Quarter was one-fifth of the present size. Now even solid Palestinian areas like Silwan, Sheikh Jarrah, Ras El Amud are being 'judaized' by extreme religious settlers - denying what should be part of a Palestinian state. Even areas like E1 and Maaleh Adumim are built on Palestinian owned land. That is the real truth - so for a peace with justice, Israel must withdraw its settlers from all the above.
