Reader comment on item: Jerusalem Means More to Jews Than to Muslims

Submitted by Michael (United States), Aug 22, 2008 at 20:26

Sir, What you are saying is not accurate, Jordan was a newly established country with no resources, thats why jerusalem was not developed properly.

The Jordanian government was not gentle to the population of the west bank and always (even after the defeat of 1967) had trouble with the Palestinians.

I am not saying Jerusalem is not important for Judasim, but it's also important for Christianity and Islam. Second it doesn't really matter who it's more important to. It's still a city build and inhabited for most part of history by the ancestors of the current Palestinians. Jews, Christians or Muslims (yes there are Jewish Palestinians).
