66. I don't understand.

How does the act of sharing this site "increase inequality?" I don't see how Muslims are harmed by allowing Jews to peacefully pray at a site that both religions regard as holy. It seems like you're insinuating that the inequities faced by devout Muslims in Jerusalem could be offset by imposing discriminatory policies on religious Jews.

The problem is that Jerusalem is being Judaized and the Arab population is being pushed around.


I also find this statement to be troubling, and even sort of bizarre. Jerusalem has always been a Jewish city. In fact, it is the quintessential Jewish city. It would be impossible to overstate the role it has played in both Jewish history and religion. The Temple Mount is not just the holiest site in Judaism, but has become increasingly significant since 1948, after Jordan's occupation of East Jerusalem, and the subsequent destruction of most of the area's ancient synagogues and Jewish historical sites. (The gravestones from the 3,000 year old Mount of Olives were repurposed to build latrines, for example.)

Can building a new synagogue on a site where an ancient one was once illegally razed really be considered "Judaizing?"
Are Jewish Israelis who live in the Jewish Quarter in EJ really "illegal colonists?" Can you colonize your own homeland?
