Argument: Israel governs Palestinians in Jerusalem well and democratically

Issue Report: Dividing Jerusalem


“Should Jerusalem be split between the Israelis and Palestinians? Helium Election 2008 – Israel is a democracy and is doing a fair job in keeping the city open to all three main monotheistic religions. Despite the Inquisition which ruined the Jews and the city, Christians today have been welcomed to the city and their holy places have been given both respect and honor by the State of Israel. Even Muslims have been given the right to maintain their Dome of the Rock – or the Al-Aksa Mosque. I see no reason why this “fair religious arrangement” should be changed. Even Rome, the seat of the Catholicism has accepted and appreciated teh manner by which Israel is keeping Jerusalem free for all religions.
