I continue to find it extraordinary that a race of people as exceptional as the Jews haven't been able to come up with an expansive new approach in dealing with a city that three separate religions consider holy. Shouldn't Israelis be able to immagine a better solution than only that ALL of Jerusalem belongs only to the Jewish community? Given the neighborhood in which Israel lives, wouldn't a more egalitarian approach to Jerusalem lead to greater security for Israel over the long term?
