The world needs to see peace in the Middle East. Since Jerusalem is the epicenter of three great faiths, it seems wise and practical to share the city, its legacy, and its symbolic heritage. Since large numbers of members of two of those faiths live in Jerusalem and in the surrounding lands, and have for centuries, a peaceful solution must be found. The history of this land goes back thousands of years. More relevantly, the past several centuries have seen this land inhabited by both Muslims and Jews. How realistic is it to argue over claims going back fifteen centuries or more? It must be acknowledge that this land has long been home to Muslims and their faith. Muslims and Jews BOTH have centuries-old claims to the land and long-standing spiritual ties to the city. Surely two peoples of great faith and wisdom can acknowledge each other's rights and needs in a peaceful way?
