    Nationalistically Speaking, the city is devided into Arab, Jewish (Since Jews Consider themselves as an ethnicity) and Armenian. Arabs and Armenians consider themselves as Palestinians and own 85% of the Old City. Jews who consider themselves as Israelis own 15%. Religiously speaking, the city is devided into Moslem, Christian and Jewish, with 15% Jewish ownership, and Arab and Armenian Christians align themselves with Arab Moslems. But the old city is bigger than these scopes, and it concerns 3 Billion People. The city shouldn't be controlled by any group, but should be shared by all under an International body authority and should be open for all believers in the world. The Haram AlSharif (Temple mount should also be accessible to Jews and everybidy outside the exclusive Moslem Prayes time which amounts to an accumilated maximum of 1.5Hrs per day.
