Jerusalem is a Jewish city

Reader comment on item: What Jewish Ties to Jerusalem?

Submitted by Frederick Bainhauer (United States), Jul 3, 2006 at 23:02

Jerusalem is a Jewish city. It is the place where Israel's kings are buried. For anyone to deny this claim is ridiculous. Though Jerusalem is sacred to other faith traditions, it is primarily a Jewish city. A friend of mine who is a Roman Catholic priest said to me:"Lets face it, when the arabs had the city, they did absolutely nothing with it. Nor did they do anything with the land." If Palestinians love Jerusalem so much, why do they spill the innocent blood of so many innocent Israelis ( Arab and Jew) with their suicide bombings. All who love Jerusalem should be welcome.......but as visitors to the Jewish city of Jerusalem.
