    Continued from last post. As I stated before I do'nt know why Hebron is default Palestinian, So, why not instead, Palestininans keep Hebron entirely to themselves and Jews keep Jerusalem. But here is where it makes sense. Jews want to go to Hebron, I have never been and if I went to Israel and was allowed it would be the first place after Tveria (where my family is) that I'd go. I, assume many Palestinians feel the same way about Jerusalem, so by Jews holding something that Palestinians want and vice versa, we create interest in eachother, now we back this interest into a free movement of persons agreement, we slap on a duty for Jews (non Israelis going to Hebron and Arabs, non palestinian going to Jerusalem) for a cash grab. essentially we create a trade between the two states one that is interdependant and by this ensures that visitor from the other state or religion are treated properly as each state is dependant on the other for a tax revenue which would be colossal.
