The only right's you have to jerusalem is to accees the ... al-aqsa mosque. You do have rights to Mecca in Saudi-Arabia, you also have right's to pray in the Al-Aqsa mosque in jerusalem, but the jews have more rights to that city which was always eternally theirs and not yours. You turn your backs on jerusalem when you pray as you are always praying in the direction of Mecca in Saudi-arabia, whilst the jews always have turned towards jerusalem when they pray in Israel or anywhere else in the world.

Since the 1840s jews outnumbered muslims and christians in jerusalem, they and only they were in the majority.
