Jerusalem: A city that should be shared

Israel has no intention of leaving a viable Palestinian state. They aim to crush and remove any Arab settlement despite their 'Peace Talks'. In ten years it will all be over and the Arabs will have been pushed off their lands forever and then the useless diplomats can all go home and shake their heads at the futility of it all over cocktails.

"One reason for the apparent futility of Palestinian dissent is the Israeli security barrier that bites into the West Bank and runs through chunks of East Jerusalem. It prevents most West Bank Muslims from reaching the city’s holy places and has cleft its Arab districts in two, leaving tens of thousands of Arab residents on the wrong side. Further impeding access, traffic lights flick green only briefly for cars from Palestinian districts while staying green for cars from Jewish settlements for minutes."
