The 1949 lines are nothing more than where the armies of five Arab countries were stopped after they mass murdered Jews and pushed them out of Judea, Samaria and "East" Jerusalem. To give those lines any respect at all today is to support the mass murder of Jews that created those 1949 lines. There is no reason whatsoever, none, that Israel should withdraw from any part of Jerusalem. Israel is the ONLY country that has ANY legitimate claim of sovereignty over Jerusalem, based on fact, history, logic and fundamental decency. Moreover, and this is the most telling point of all, the ONLY reason that the PLO wants Jerusalem is because of their psychopathic hatred of Israel. The PLO understands the overwhelming pain they will inflict on Israel if they should ever succeed in severing Jerusalem from Israel. If Israel didn't care about Jerusalem, the PLO (and the Muslim world) would regard Jerusalem with complete disinterest. "And that's a fact, Jack."
