    Well, I can understand how some right wing Israelis feel because they feel attached to Jerusalem and their form of nationalism. This nationalism is leading them to be blind towards the suffering of the other- Palestinians. This is not acceptable, because there was too much focus in old Europe on Jews not being European and horrible things were done. Palestinians and Jews can share Jerusalem. Why not? Everyone wants the same thing. Jewish rabbis can have the authority and jurisdiction over the Wall. Palestinians won't say no. Even some of the Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem can be taken, but Pals want the Arab neighborhoods, the church, and the mosque. Is it necessary to kill in a holy city and not to find peace. Conservative Palestinians can appreciate Orthodox Jews if they agree to live as neighbors and citizens and vote. They have much in common. Stop thinking just in terms of nationality and think in terms of neighbors. Jews would be welcome to live there.
