    I am impressed by the characterization of the City of David as being Silwan. (check a map, please..) I am impressed that the sale of homes and property by private owners as being defined as being "pushed out", and this site as having "historic meaning for Arabs and world culture". What Arab inhabitants have been "expelled" from this neighborhood? And how are the Palestinians being made to "suffer" or to be "disenfranchised"? If the Jewish settlement should not continue or be supported because "Palestinians clearly don't want them there", well, let's get out of this whole land and go back to where the gentiles loved us. I mean, hey, what right have we got to this place anyway? Give Jerusalem back to the Jebusites! As for your expectation and hope for symmetry in justice and social harmony, I applaud it, and would hope that your criticism of possible lopsided land expropriation and cultural sensitivity will also apply to our cousins as well.
