There is no way Jerusalem will be partitioned, period. Or, if you like, since three tribes of Israel lived east of the Jordan, maybe you'd like to return that land to Israel? After all, what's good for the goose must also be good for the gander, right?
I have a better idea- dismantle and move the Dome of the Rock compound to Amman, the real capital of the Palestinians. They moved the Abu Simbel temple in Egypt a half century ago. I'm sure they can move Al Aqsa quite easily and reassemble it in the King's own back yard.
As for 'Washington's efforts to promote Israeli-Palestinian peace and ameliorate Gaza's humanitarian crisis,' let's all remember that it's not Israel calling for Gaza's destruction, but Hamas calling for Israel's. Hamas could end Gaza's misery with two simple words: "we're done."
But they don't. They'd rather launch rockets, missiles, and mortars into Israel; dig tunnels into Israel, and send fire-bombs into Israel.
I'm simply amazed that Israel has held back for so long. No other country in the world would.
Rebels in Yemen send off a single rocket into Saudi Arabia and the Saudis send off their entire Air Force to bomb the crap out them- and the UN says nothing.
It's always the same with the UN: Jews killing Muslims in self-defense get resolutions about atrocities; Muslims killing Muslims gets absolute silence.
It's time Israel and the USA told the Arab world that Jerusalem is Israel's and nobody else's, and that it is not on the table to be discussed.
If the Arab world hisses and moans, the USA should announce their foreign aid will be stopped. Very simple. The Saudis need us more than we need them. And yet they're screwing us on the price of oil. Some 'friends', eh President Trump?
