That's how the Muslims ended up with the Temple Mount. The Jews decided to give them control of the Dome of the Rock as a show of good faith and as an attempt at peace after the British left Israel. Maybe that would have been a fine deal with another culture, but these Muslims don't understand Western thinking or give or take. They grab what they can and push for more. And complain. I don't think I've ever seen or heard of a group of people who complain so much, yet leaves its fate in the hands of outsiders.

I also say do not divide Jerusalem. Take whatever action is needed to prevent Muslim assaults. They take their orders from outside culprits who don't care how much they suffer. Lastly, the Muslim plan is to no doubt remain an obstacle to peace. I read the Arab/Muslims conquered Egypt in ancient times by moving there, causing little problems, until their numbers grew so large they were able to take over.

The question is, how can we influence the education of Palestinian children to break the revenge cycle?
