Jeruslem Population trends Gerrymandering

Reader comment on item: Jewish and Arab Demographics in Jerusalem

Submitted by Arthur Cohn (United States), May 9, 2007 at 19:39

It does not make sense for Israel to pull back to the pre-1967 borders of Jerusalem. After all, these were set by the advance of the Jordanian Arab Legion. In the forty years since Israel repulsed the new Jordanian attacks, Jews and Arabs have revised their neighborhood living patterns, which are quite segregated. Jerusalem should be Gerrymandered to only encompass the Jewish neighborhoods, including, the old city, the newer Jewish suburbs and Maale Adumin. The Arab neighborhoods should be joined-up to form the city of Al Kuds.
