    The 2000 president clinton formula was for israel to get the jewish neighborhoods of the old city and palestinians to get the arab ones and they would work out the armenian one. For brazil and argentina and some eu countries to want palestinians to get the whole old city including the western wall and jewish quarter shows they are as ideologues as the settlers are demanding everything. Palestinians were rioting when a synogague was opened in the jewish quarter. This is especially bad considering palestinians have said they nothing jewish could even face the their golden dome. Erakat and abbas won't even recognize a jewish state and plo officials have said the goal is to get so many refugees into israel so it becomes two arab states. The EU doesn't ask PLO to recognize israel as homeland of jews. EU doesne't ask PLO to let israel have the western wall or jewish neighborhoolds which the PLO wrote an article saying the western wall isn't jewish. EU doesn't ask PLO to come down from their demands not to give an inch of 67 borders when those borders were an armistice and a UN resolution says the borders should be negotiated. UN orginally wanted old city as an international city. More jews than arabs were in east jerusalem before 48 and jordan kicked them out of the old city and destroyed the synogagues. EU never asks them to deal with hamas and settle that first.
