I fully subscribe to the idea of Mr. Eldar that Jerusalem should be divided. Failure to divide it will not serve the purpose of giving even the whole of West Bank to the Arabs to achieve peace. Jerusalem is very much Holy for the Muslims. Thousands of Muslim lives were sacrificed to defend it from the Crusaders. The Prophet of Islam turned to the direction of Jerusalem when praying before the Ka'abah had been liberated from the pagans because Ka'abah then was full of idols. That made Jerusalem one of the Holiest sites for Islam. The present generation of Muslims and the succeeding ones will never give away East Jerusalem because of religious reason. Keeping it solely for the Jews will mean endless violence and terrorism. The actors in the present negotiations should recognize the evil repercussions of Netanyahu's arrogance and selfishness.
