O Jerusalem. Whose capital city is it? What is Jerusalem to the Palestinian Arabs? Some are Christians, so they know its Jewish history, without which Jesus would never have ended his days there. Did Mohammed ever visit the city? Hardly, since no mosques were built in Jerusalem during his lifetime. Jerusalem has been a mainly Jewish city since the last 4000 years, and in recent times ever since the 1860's. East Jerusalem only became Judenrein when the Arabs massacred or evicted the Jewish inhabitants in the 1930's and 40's.
