"Why is it legal for Israel to have Israelis living in west Jerusalem or Jaffa but not in East Jerusalem and other Palestinians areas?" (zionist forever) There is only one way for Israelis to live legally in East Jerusalem and other palestinian areas, and that is for the Israeli government to first annex them, then to have the annexation recognized by the international community. Only then will Israelis legally live there. Nothing of that sort has happened yet. "The fact the Palestinians want something doesn't mean they should automatically get it." (zionist forever) You are absolutely correct. No one, certainly not in Israel, is even suggesting that "they should automatically get what they want." And no one will ever know what exactly they want as long as negotiations are not held, and their outcome published.
