Would somebody explain to me how Israel has to negotiate with the whole Muslim world when it is just the Palestinians who are affected? I think this would send messages to all those democracies who let quotas of Muslims into their countries that this is a danger to them. Why haven't Christians all banded together and asked for Santa Sophia back from the Muslims? Why can't the Jews rebuild the temple on the temple mount? Who was there first? If it's a religious question then we need to settle all these religious issues and all Christians can stand together and ask for their sanctuaries back that have fallen into Muslim hands via military force, I might add. And the Jews certainly have a far superior claim to the Temple Mount than the Muslims. Let's negotiate a peace with the Palestinian 'people', not with the religious Muslim world. The PR campaign on this one stinks.
