    Eli you don't know what you are talking about. Israel restricts access of Arabs and Christians to their religious sites. Eg. Rachel's Tomb, which is in Bethlehem (in the Occupied Territories) has been annexed (via the apartheid wall) to Israel. Both Christians and Muslims are either restricted or prevent from visiting there. In 2004, I witnessed first hand, the Israeli military preventing Palestinian Muslims, including those who had the correct permits, from praying at Al Asqa mosque on the first day of Ramadan. A Jewish friend I was with, argued with the Israeli solidiers telling them, this is what was done to us, why are you doing to the Palestinians. Jerusalem is not "YOURS", it belongs to all three religions and by international law it belongs to the Palestinians as its part of the Occupied Territories. Yes, I guess killing 1000 innocent Lebanese last year in bombing raids and killing more than 600 innocent Palestinians in Gaza in last 5 months is very "civilised".
