"Some 300 people gathered in Sheikh Jarrah on Friday for the weekly protest against Jewish presence in the predominantly-Arab east Jerusalem neighborhood" Jewish presence? Are you serious? I can understand the call for an establishment of a Palestinian capital there, to some extent. But this is simply racist. First of all, there are the Jewish quarters there which were there since the city was basically built (with no interruptions, mind you). But even if there were not there, how could you possibly justify a prohibition for Jews to live in East Jerusalem? There are Arabs who live in Israel, Muslim and Christian, and in fact the Arabic population in all of Jerusalem is growing, so the whole protest is misguided at best. Either way, this is simply Antisemitism, unless the article is misquoting. If it is a misquote, it should be edited. If it isn't, then this article should be more critical of the protesters, and in fact every reasonable person should condemn it. I know there are Israeli Jews there, most likely, but that doesn't make the event any less antisemitic. It would seem that those present there are completely confused and don't realize that they are being racist against their own race. I support a two state solution, if it can be achieved, and I certainly don't mind a Palestinian state. I'm not sure if it's a good idea for them to have a capital in Jerusalem, but I understand the demand. That's fair. But to demand that there are no Jews in East Jerusalem (or the rest of the potential Palestinian state) is simply antisemitic.

"Jerusalem is for the Jews, and we need to stop apologizing about this." In 1967 in the Six Day War, Israel became in control of East Jerusalem. They did not use their conquest to deprive the Moslems access to their holy sites in East Jerusalem as the Jordanians had done to the Jews and Christians. The Jews are going back into East Jerusalem where they had been driven out in 1948. If anyone is doing ethnic cleansing, it is the Arabs. It appears to the Israelis, therefore, that Obama and Ban Ki Moon wants to keep East Jerusalem JUDENREIN. More about Jerusalem :
