Let's cut the crap and get to the truth. Abbas wants Jerusalem as a means to make money off of via turism. He knows his people are lazy, they don't like to work, so they want the Egypt model of making money only off turism via a false impression that there is some sort of deep rooted connection to this land for Islam, otherwise the Palestinian economy collapses the day they declare statehood without Jerusalem. EVERY SINGLE JEWISH heritage site throughout the Arab peninsula has either been destroyed or over-run by Arab nations. For all you non-historians, I'll make it simple. Jerusalem will be divided when the land of Khaibar will be restored as a Jewish Town before we all know what Muhammed did to the men, and THEN what he did to the women... Let Israel have Khaibar and then you can have parts of Jerusalem for your THIRD holy site instead of our ONLY Jewish holy site.. DEAL??? Yeah thats's what I thought.
