In order to sweeten the pot they have presented the recommendation to the President of Egypt, that Jerusalem will belong to the Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Even according to those who consider that this is the way to make peace, this textual order is unfathomable: “Christians, Muslims and Jews”.
|Ancient Jewish Jerusalem|
Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish People not only from a Halachic perspective. Historic documents prove without contradiction, that King David established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. One thousand years later saw the arrival of Christians and Arabs.
Why in the text of compromise did they end with the word “Jews”? Where is the limit to the debasement of Jewish pride? This is not all. They want to relinquish Hebron! It is shame and disgrace that in Israel there should be a law to which all government ministers put their signature clearly implying that the Jewish People have no rights to dwell in Hebron or by the Cave of Machpela. This law was joyfully handed to the city head of Hebron whose family members murdered Jews in Hebron in the riots of 1929.
Have they [the Arabs] murdered Jews and thereby gained [been given by the government of Israel] the rights to inherit?
