OK, so we see that there is a significant difference in the way that Jewish Israelis and PA Arabs see the world.
A majority of PA Arabs would deny rights to Jews and xtians to worship or visit holy sites in Jerusalem--yet, in the Jewish State of Israel, arabs are given full right to worship and visit their holy sites--even to the exclusion of Jews visiting their own sites.
When Jerusalem is under Jewish rule, everyone has access. When it is under the rule of arabs, only arabs can visit.
Jews respect the rights of arabs and xtians (and Zoroastrians, and Bahai, and Buddhists, and Hindus . . . ), but arabs only respect the rights of arabs.
Arab control over Jerusalem would spell disaster--not only for Jews, but for everyone.
Equally destructive would be Obama's plan to "internationalize" Jerusalem. Can you imagine the "international" committee's control of the Temple Mount? It wouldn't be long before we had PETA setting up an interactive museum dedicated to the pain and suffering of the sacrifices, feminist sadist transvestites putting up a protest tent, and devil worshippers demanding the opportunity to hold satanic rights there.
Obama's "international city" of Jerusalem already exists--under Jewish control. Peace in Jerusalem will exist only when Jews control it completely, with strength, and with respect for sanctity and history.
We must never give up our rights to our homeland. We must strongly, and in no uncertain terms, push back those who would suggest that even one square inch of Israel should be in the hands of another people.
PA Arabs in Late Response to Obama Speech: No, We Can't
by Maayana Miskin
(IsraelNN.com) A poll released this week showed that PA Arabs are reluctant to grant rights to Jews or Christians within areas demanded for a PA state. A survey conducted by the Arab World for Research and Development among 1,200 Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza found that did not feel Jerusalem should be shared with Jews and Christians.
When asked to what extent they agreed with a statement made by United States President Barack Obama that Jerusalem should be “a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims,” less than 17 percent said they agree, while 20 percent said they “somewhat agree.” More than 42 percent said they disagree with the statement, while 17 percent “somewhat disagree.”
Reject violence? No thanks
More than 45 percent of those surveyed disagreed with a second statement of Obama's in which the president called on the Arab world to reject violence and killing as a means of struggle. Twenty-two percent did not give an answer, while the remainder said they “agree” or “somewhat agree” with the statement.
The poll showed that PA Arabs were pessimistic regarding Obama's speech to the Arab world in early June. More believed that Obama's visit to the region would strengthen Israel, increase restrictions on Gaza, and do nothing to promote negotiations than believed the opposite. Only 14.2 percent said they fully agreed that Obama is serious when he calls for the creation of a PA state.
Jews want rights as minority in PA
Another new poll showed that most Israeli Jews believe that any future Palestinian Authority-led Arab state in Judea and Samaria should provide Jews with equal rights, including the right to live freely in its territory. The statistic was revealed Thursday by a Maagar Mochot poll published by the Independent Media Review and Analysis.
Fifty-eight percent of the 506 Israeli Jews surveyed said they believed Israel should insist that any future PA state respect the right of Jews to live in its territory. Thirty-one percent believed Israel should not insist that Jews be allowed to live in a PA state . . . [MORE]
