They Won't Be Patient for Five Years

O Jerusalem! America drafts plan to cut in 2

Allows Palestinian security control, asks Israel to forfeit Temple Mount

The United States, which has been mediating negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority here, has proposed a plan to divide Jerusalem, WND has learned.

The plan, divided into separate phases, among other things calls for Israel eventually to forfeit parts of the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site.

According to the first stage of the U.S. plan, which was obtained by WND, Israel would give the PA some municipal and security sovereignty over key Arab neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem.

The PA would be allowed to open some official institutions in Jerusalem, could elect a mayor for the Palestinian side of the city and would deploy police forces to maintain law and order.

The initial stage also calls for the PA to operate Jerusalem municipal institutions, such as offices to oversee trash collection and maintenance of roads.

After five years, if both sides keep their certain commitments called for in a larger principal agreement, according to the U.S. plan the PA would be given full sovereignty over the eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods and also over sections of the Temple Mount. The plan doesn't specify which parts of the Temple Mount would be forfeited to the Palestinians.



They won't keep them for three months.

Which will happen first-

The Palestinians will break the agreement regarding the division of Jerusalem

Or Shas will admit there is negotiation regarding the division of Jerusalem

Jerry, Shas never admits to anything, even in court (where they find the,selves too occasionally)

Mr. Medad, have you considered the alternative of having Jerusalem under joint rule between Israelis and Palestinians, with a more open jurisdiction over Temple Mount (i.e. Jews, Christians, Muslims... heck, anyone can visit it and worship there)?

Just wondering. I'm interested in hearing your input.

It is under "joint rule" now. Israel is responsible for the outside protection and the Waqf administers the inside - a situation which doesn't allow Jews or Christians to either worship therein, say Psalms or any other religious text like the Bible or either protect Islamic destruction of Jewish artifacts. It doesn't work.
