Reader comment on item: What Jewish Ties to Jerusalem?

Submitted by anonymous (Canada), Jun 20, 2006 at 14:17

Thank you for your disturbing but accurate precis of the Palestinian mindset on Jerusalem. It's rather unbeliavable that anyone could believe such rubbish. P.T. Barnum said it best : " There's a sucker born every minute".

Why is it that many have trouble understanding that Jerusalem is holy to Jews ? Why is it that they feign an inability to understand why Jerusalem must always will be the capital of any Jewish state ?

I wonder what would happen if Israel, its citizens and the Jewish people adopted the Muslim stance on Mecca for Jerusalem. Just asking.
