Hebrews occupied Jerusalem thousands of years before Mohammed and the Arabs.
But the city belongs to no group. It should be divided into three: Israeli, Palestinian, and an international enclave of the Old City.
Anyone pushing for a monopoly is advancing terror and instability. Claiming it enirely for one people is extremism and violates the true spirit of Islam and Judaism and Christianity.
Not according to the archaeological evidence....

Jerusalem Existed for 2700 years Before Judaism Was Invented

“The "Jewish people" were not building Jerusalem 3000 years ago, i.e. 1000 BCE. First of all, it is not clear when exactly Judaism as a religion centered on the worship of the one God took firm form. It appears to have been a late development since no evidence of worship of anything but ordinary Canaanite deities has been found in archeological sites through 1000 BCE. There was no invasion of geographical Palestine from Egypt by former slaves in the 1200s BCE. The pyramids had been built much earlier and had not used slave labor. The chronicle of the events of the reign of Ramses II on the wall in Luxor does not know about any major slave revolts or flights by same into the Sinai peninsula. Egyptian sources never heard of Moses or the 12 plagues & etc. Jews and Judaism emerged from a certain social class of Canaanites over a period of centuries inside Palestine.

Jerusalem not only was not being built by the likely then non-existent "Jewish people" in 1000 BCE, but Jerusalem probably was not even inhabited at that point in history. Jerusalem appears to have been abandoned between 1000 BCE and 900 BCE, the traditional dates for the united kingdom under David and Solomon. So Jerusalem was not 'the city of David,' since there was no city when he is said to have lived. No sign of magnificent palaces or great states has been found in the archeology of this period, and the Assyrian tablets, which recorded even minor events throughout the Middle East, such as the actions of Arab queens, don't know about any great kingdom of David and Solomon in geographical Palestine.

Since archeology does not show the existence of a Jewish kingdom or kingdoms in the so-called First Temple Period, it is not clear when exactly the Jewish people would have ruled Jerusalem except for the Hasmonean Kingdom. The Assyrians conquered Jerusalem in 722. The Babylonians took it in 597 and ruled it until they were themselves conquered in 539 BCE by the Achaemenids of ancient Iran, who ruled Jerusalem until Alexander the Great took the Levant in the 330s BCE. Alexander's descendants, the Ptolemies ruled Jerusalem until 198 when Alexander's other descendants, the Seleucids, took the city. With the Maccabean Revolt in 168 BCE, the Jewish Hasmonean kingdom did rule Jerusalem until 37 BCE, though Antigonus II Mattathias, the last Hasmonean, only took over Jerusalem with the help of the Parthian dynasty in 40 BCE. Herod ruled 37 BCE until the Romans conquered what they called Palestine in 6 CE (CE='Common Era' or what Christians call AD). The Romans and then the Eastern Roman Empire of Byzantium ruled Jerusalem from 6 CE until 614 CE when the Iranian Sasanian Empire Conquered it, ruling until 629 CE when the Byzantines took it back.

The Muslims conquered Jerusalem in 638 and ruled it until 1099 when the Crusaders conquered it. The Crusaders killed or expelled Jews and Muslims from the city. The Muslims under Saladin took it back in 1187 CE and allowed Jews to return, and Muslims ruled it until the end of World War I, or altogether for about 1192 years.....”

I do agree that Jerusalem as well as its suburbs should be under the jurisdiction of an international commission per the UN resolution. Israel has already bulldozed too many historical sites simply because they have a Muslim or Christian history.

This should be a forum on Nazi Hitler's rejuvenation and reincarnation Band of the ignorant Muzzie Brotherhood. One would think we went back over 65 years to hear the same Jewish and Anti-Semite hate all over again!! The little Nazi Hitler wanna-be's like These scumbag eDtHEzit DIAPER HEAD Pants is reliving the Nazi past! I bet the little scumbag has little Hitler moustache and wear swastika's 24/7!!!! This clown is BEST known by the language the JEW HATING, Israel HATING moron uses THOUGHOUT TOPIX. You'd think we were reliving the NAZI PAST!
Depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. That’s right: I’m talking about “Anti-Jewish, anti=Israel, Hamas Sock puppet trolls" who infect the Internet with Pro-Hitler, Pro-Nazi, Pro-Hamas, Anti-Jewish and anti-Israel propaganda.
The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Hamas cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.
If you’ve come across Hamas Sock Puppets like these morons, on-line or otherwise, you have learned that no amount of reasoned argument or intellectual maturity has any effect.
That’s because the Hamas PAID PROPAGANDISTS don't care if they come across as ignorant, obnoxious, nasty or inane.

I've already told you this ignoramus many times but you remain clueless as the day you were hatched in a test tube marked failure!! Now read it and weep!! What was the message inscribed on the cross that the Romans placed!! The Bible actually tells us. Matthew 27:37 says that, on the Cross, over the head of Jesus, was a sign that said "This is Jesus the King of the Jews." (KJAV) Mark 15:26 and John 19:19 say essentially the same thing. So STOP THE FILTHY LYING edthezit diaPer head!!! You get caught in so many lies it's pathetic!

Of course whoever wrote the Quran for Mohammad would say that. Funny how the Quran was written 790 years AFTER Christ appeared on this earth. How the hell does a writer for Mohammad (who happened to be illiterate) come up with this hogwash 1200 years later?? The bottom line is that no one knows for sure who wrote the Quran. It could have been Joe Blow down the street for all we know. When we consider the New Testament of the Holy Bible, we have today in our possession 5,300 known Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, another 10,000 Latin Vulgates, and 9,300 other early versions, giving us more than 24,000 manuscripts of the New Testament in existence today! Furthermore, a substantial number were written well before the compilation of the Quran. In fact, a total of 230 manuscript portions are currently in existence which pre-date 600 AD or 1200 years before the Quran was written! These can be broken down into 192 New Testament manuscripts, 5 lectionaries containing scripture, and 33 translations of the Greek New Testament. So what comparisons are there between the manuscript evidence for the Quran and the Bible? We know from the historical record that by the end of the seventh century the Arabs had expanded right across North Africa and up into Spain, and east as far as India. The Quran was the centerpiece of their faith and practice at that time. Certainly within that enormous sphere of influence there should therefore be some Quran manuscripts which still exist till this day. Yet, there is nothing from that period at all. The only manuscripts which Islam provides turn out to have been compiled in the ninth century, while the earliest corroborated manuscript is dated 790 A.D. or over 1200 years after New Testament manuscripts. Islam cannot provide a single manuscript until well into the eighth century. If the Christians could retain so many thousands of ancient manuscripts, all of which were written long before the Quran, at a time when paper had not yet been introduced, forcing the dependency on papyrus which disintegrated with age, then one wonders why the Muslims are not able to forward a single manuscript from this much later period, during which the Quran was supposedly revealed? This indeed gives the Bible a much stronger claim for reliability than the Quran.

the city should be divided between israel and palestine and the old city made an international free enclave for everyone. but both the extremes, the Islamic fundamentalists and israeli settler movement should cool their rhetoric so peace is viable. Abbas is wrong. Bibi is wrong. Jerusalem belongs to everyone, not one people.

I agree. Historically, the majority of the populations are Muslim Arabs and have been for the last 1400 years...

Even after 65 years as occupiers, the ignorant Israeli Ashkenazi Jews have absolutely no clue about sustainable living in a desert environment like Palestine....still building swimming pools and golf courses!

Israel has no friends, no water, no natural resources, no economy, and no future, bubba.

Within five years Israeli Arabs will be 30% of Israel's population and within ten years they will be able to begin to take control of the government, the courts, and the military which means the "Jewish state of Israel" will begin to disappear from the pages of time....

Israel has diplomatic relationships with 161 nations. Soon after the proclamation of the state of Israel' in 1948, the Jewish nation was boycotted the Arab league of nations. The government of Israel then forged ties with United States and the then newly formed independent countries of Asia and Africa. Here is the list of some of the major countries which support Israel:

• United States: The US has been the ally of Israel since 60 years. It is the first country to officially recognize the establishment of Israel as an independent state. Half of Israel's external debt is owed to the US. The latter is the main source of monetary and military support.
• Turkey: It is the first Muslim nation to formally recognize the State of Israel, one year after the Declaration of the establishment of the Jewish state. There is a fair amount of strategic, military and diplomatic tie-up between the two nations.
• Arab states: Israel has diplomatic nations with Egypt, Mauritania, Jordan and Qatar.
• Asian nations: These include China and India
• EU nations: These include the UK, Republic of Ireland and Germany.
• Others: These comprise of Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc, Venezuela, and the South Africa.

Sorry Baby Boy Ezi the Liar but your lies don't win around here. You can speculate on the future of Israel as much as you want, we are not going anywhere, not now not in 10 years not in 1000 years. You and your terrorist friends will never get their hands on Israel and her land.
Perhaps you should do some more research before you post such lies, like the one about the Torah, the reference for which we are still waiting. So go on Baby Boy Ezi the Liar post your reference in the Torah, Book, Chapter and Verse. Come on LIAR we are still waiting.

Friends?

Diplomatic relationships are not friends or even allies. The US has never had any defense treaties with Israel, therefore Israel is NOT a US ally. Israel has no allies or friends and its trade agreement with the EU may end in January 2013. It's on the agenda.

Water?

"In July 2008 the Knesset State Control Committee decided to establish a state commission of inquiry into the serious water crisis facing Israel. The committee looked at the failure to implement the recommendations of a series of professional committees and cabinet resolutions aimed at addressing the water situation over the years....in its final report in March 2010 the commission of inquiry, headed by former judge Dan Bein, warned that the nation was "on the verge of a water quality crisis". Bein said that there was a "system-wide failure to make decisions...."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_supply_and...

Natural resources?

"Unlike much of the Middle East which is rich in lucrative crude oil, Israel has limited natural resources. These include copper, phosphates, bromide, potash, clay, sand, sulfur, asphalt, and manganese. Small amounts of natural gas and crude oil are present, often too little to merit commercial extraction...."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_of_Isr...

Economy?

40% of the Israel's GDP comes from exports of goods and services, about 15% comes from US aid, and the rest of its revenue comes from its occupation of Palestinian territory.

Boycott's are really biting into Israel's economy and it's just going to get worse. Canceling Israel's trade agreement is going to be at the top of the EU's agenda in January 2013 and Israel's cyber attacks on Iran has potential customers rethinking whether they really want to do business with a country like Israel....

And then there's that ticking demographic time bomb with Israeli Arabs taking control of the country....

Again, Israel has no friends, no water, no natural resources, no economy, and NO future, bubba.
