yossi sarid, you accuse wiesel of "imbuing our current conflict with messianic hues." jews are not allowed to claim jerusalem as holy for judaism. yet sarid claims that "this city is holy to everyone." who is everyone? the truth is that muslims have never accepted jewish legitimacy over any part of jerusalem. the truth is that muslim blackmail has caused the uk tourism ministry to claim that the kotel(western wall) is in "east jerusalem." if the kotel is in "east jerusalem," then what part of jewish holy places would remain under the control of the only jewish state.
