    The message is clear, if the issue of Israeli occupation in East Jerusalem is not solved, there is no way Israel can achieve peace with the Arab and Muslim worlds (1.5 billion people worldwide, one in four humans). Remember that it is the third holiest site in Islam. Israel control of the old city means that most Muslims will be prevented from praying in one of their holiest shrine due to "security reasons" just like most Palestinian Muslims are not able to pray on Fridays or most days during Ramadan. That is why the old city has to be under Palestinian control in a final settlement. NO JERUSALEM = NO REAL PEACE Also, by giving up Jerusalem, Israel will bolster Muslim moderates and negate Iran and Islamic fanatics/ extremists!!
