Israelis Are Willing to Divide Jerusalem
NYPOST ^ | 9/2/2010 | NYPost

Israel is willing to make a sweeping concession -- dividing control of Jerusalem -- as part of a historic final peace pact with Palestinians, a key Cabinet member revealed yesterday.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak signaled that his government is ready to drop its demand that even after the creation of a Palestinian state, Jerusalem would "remain the undivided capital of Israel."

"West Jerusalem and 12 Jewish neighborhoods that are home to 200,000 [Israeli] residents will be ours," Barak told the newspaper Haaretz.

"The Arab neighborhoods in which close to a quarter million Palestinians live will be theirs," he added, referring to the eastern part of the city that was captured from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war.

Dumb move!

It will never be enough until all Jews are exterminated.

In June 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama won thunderous applause at a Washington convention of the leading pro-Israel lobbying group, AIPAC, by declaring, “Jerusalem will remain the capital [of Israel] and it must remain undivided.”

Obama later backtracked and said he accepted the longstanding US policy — that the city’s future must be decided by negotiations.

Great idea. Reward those who want you destroyed. Dividing Jerusalem won’t be enough. Nothing will be enough short of the end of Israel as an independent nation.

Brilliant. East Jerusalem can rain rockets down on West Jerusalem. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Wasn't this Barak the guy Clinton weaselled into power back in the day?

Well, good luck with that. We’ll see you back at the negotiating table in a couple of years to give up the next chunk.

There is ONE upside to this decision. At least these Arabs will no longer be eligible to vote in Israeli elections.

The muslims want the bottom half of the life boat. Dividing Jerusalem will lead to grief.

Why? It'll never be enough until all of Isreal is under Islamic control again.

Isn't anyone in the Isreali govmnt listening to these people? They're telling everyone what they really want.

What a useless process. Palestinians (ahem!) don’t want peace - they will lose all reason for their existence if they give up terrorism. What are they going to do? Work for a living? HA!!!!

Both Baraks are fools and traitors.

There is no other divided capital in the world (Berlin is one in case the stupids have forgotten).

The Arabs have Mecca and Medina, we’ve got “Funky Cool Medina”, and the Islamonazis has Teheran.

Leave Jerusalem alone and united.

First of all God said not to divide His land. Second, could a Temple being built on the Mount be part of the ‘piece’ deal. If it is... tic, tic, tic....

Bibbi will again get kicked out of office just like he did before, if he goes along with his and doesn’t stop this insanity.
