1. idealists wanting to share their watermelon
zionist forever   (07.26.13)
When it comes to political issues its largely down to the leaders but fact is Jews & arabs for the most part do not like each other. Two people want the same plot of land for themselves ( Israel ). The only way your going to solve this conflict is by taking away Israel's status as a Jewish state and turn the demographic table till arabs rule.] Jews have traditionally been willing to be submissive in other peoples lands but the arabs want to dominate. Even since the birth of Israel even with its powerful army Jews prefer to be submissive. We want peace with arabs so we never dictate terms despite the fact we have all the cards and keep crossing one red line after another because its easier to be submissive than fight to dictate terms and the arabs know this. When the Jews accept arab leadership then we can live in peace but as long as we want a situation where the Jews can live alongside arabs peacefully. Now though whist we will have our idealists and we won't shoot each other in the street Jews & arabs do not like each other. Also I can eat a whole watermelon alone if I didn't have anybody to share it with and when I get a watermellon I dont dream of having somebody to share it with.

3. It's possible to live with Arabs
Yossef   (07.26.13)
as well as it is possible to live with Jews. We are not that different. But it is difficult to live with fundamentalists, Jews or Arabs as well.

Why anyone would want to share a watermelon with a miserable individual such as yourself beats me, anyhow.

Looks more like an Ottoman construction to me. About 500 years old?
8. #7 - Start by taking down

the muslim rubbish sitting on the top of Temple Mount
9. #6, no hard evidence there was ever
an "david" or "first temple". Myth & folklore. Israel = nation build on lies.
10. To No. 8

Your post is rubbish - contemptible rubbish at that. Even contemporary Israeli archaeologists have located the 'City of David' elsewhere. And, by the way, Herod - a Jewish king? A Roman puppet, if anything. But, as No. 9. observes, it's all mythology and conjecture. Nothing wrong with that - we all need our myths and stories, Jews and non-Jews. However, evidenced-based history is quite a different activity.
