    We must set the record straight, as many of these talkbackers simply don't know the facts. Pisgat Zev started as a Jewish neighborhood, near the Arab neighborhood of Shuafat. But Arabs have been moving in at a regular pace, buying both new and second hand homes there. In fact, every time there is discussion about dividing Jerusalem, large numbers of Arabs rush to buy in Pisgat Zev, so they won't be caught on the Palestinian side of the border. Pisgat Zev even deals with the issue of mixed dating between Arab and Jewish teenagers. Jerusalem is a mixed city, and anyone who asks the government to discriminate against Jews is no friend to Israel or Jews anywhere in the world. If it can happen here, it can happen anywhere.
