    The only time thet jerusalem was not Jewish was 19 years from 1948-1967 when the Jordanians threw killed or threw out the Jewish rsidents of the Old City, Hebron, etc. Before 1967 East Jerusalem was the backwater of Arab cities and no religious or political leader ever came to pray in the Al Aksa mosque. East Jerusalem took on renewed meaning for you as soon as Israel captured it (in a defensive war, may I remind you) - suddenly it became a crucial issue. Israel was fair enough to place your holy sites in your hands and you have since, especially in the last 15 years, have slowly been destroying evidence of Jewish history there. There is no claim you have on East Jerusalem than is srtonger than historical Jewish claim. If you put that obstacle in the way of a final peace agreement then for sure I would know that your desire for peace is not genuine. Your desire is for Israel and that will be your downfall. Your allusions to the Nazi era when talking about Israel and Jews has not gone unnoticed. It matters not that you are participating in this list. What matters is that you have not heard a word anyone has said. You are entrenched in you mindset and are willing to forego any chance of peace to defend it (your mindset). There is not a single reason in this world for Jerusalem to be the Capital of Palestine other than your wish to perpetuate the conflict. Apparently this suits your interests far more than peace does.
