sorry- but East Jerusalem is most certainly part of Israel. Admittedly in 1948 the Arabs tried to make it Judenfrei by expelling Jews from and destroying the Jewish Quarter. But they failed. Any East Jerusalem resident has the right to Israeli citizenship. If he had obtained it, he wouldnt be having any problems now. Clearly most of the people commenting on this article cant read English as it is made clear that Fahimi did not obtain Israeli citizenship. Perhaps he failed to do so because the PLO was threatening with death Arabs who did obtain Israeli citizenship. Finally, a recent Palestinian survey in East Jerusalem showed that the plurality of respondents preferred to remain under Israeli rule- even if they had to move into other parts of Israel to do so.
