Joseph, I have been to Israel no less than half a dozen times. I saw Settlers who scared the hell out of me. I heard tour operators talk nasty about Palestinians, I saw Palestinian Israelis with no equal rights to Jews, I saw Palestinians rotting in Refugee camps, most of them owned homes and land less than10 miles away. In the USA, Christians who love you want you to precipitate the 2nd coming and accept Jesus. A Secular Jerusalem with faith for only the faithful, and no religious claim to it, makes the most sense. Otherwise it will not see peace.
