    One of the stupidist and cruelest ideas ever is the idea of dividing Jerusalem. Go research what it was like pre-1967, concrete fences, barb wire, sniper fire, grenades, and some of you want to return Jerusalem to that? In pre 1967 Jerusalem Arabs and Palestinians took pleasure in banning Jews frm their holiest site, the Wailing Wall. Not only that they burned down over 60 synagogues. Name one mosque that the Jews have burned down and the Jews have placed the Golden Dome in the control of the Palestinians with free access. The world needs to stop trying to divide Jerusalem and leave it in the hands of Israel as their capitol. Asking the Jews to give up Jerusalem is like asking the Islamist to give up Mecca to the Jews. The only real reason the Palestinians ask for Jerusalem is that they know that if they can force the Jews to give it up that the very act would demoralize them and take the fight out of them and then they could destroy Israel completely. Therefore the act of asking for Jerusalem is ugly and born of evil intent.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
