« Kickoff: 1000 Conversations Across Political Difference | Main | New Page About Chanukkah »

December 07, 2017


The author seems to be conflicted as to what he really believes. There is no Palestinian state nor a Palestinian people. There are Arabs and Jews. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel, land of the Jews, for thousands of years, long before Islam even existed. What the Arabs want is to be rid of Jews. They have no interest in sharing anything at all. The author would be wise to realize and accept their true motives and remain true to his own ancient and solid faith - and truth.

Rabbi, I think people can try to analyze Trumps intentions and come up with different ideas. I look at it meaning Jerusalem in its entirety. We can build an embassy wherever we choose in the city and it does not change the fact that Muslims and others have freedom and rights in the city / country and hold political positions. Their life is probably as good and perhaps better than in some other countries in the area. The areas they would like to split up, since they know they can't have it all were never theirs to begin with. If they are that unhappy then perhaps they should consider moving a few miles back to Jordan where they have a majority population.
