Jerusalem

F1000050 Jerusalem… There is not a single Palestinian who can imagine or think of Palestine without Jerusalem. I have more reasons than one to think the same.

The Israelis on the other hand say that Jerusalem is Jewish, has always been and will always be. Of course an idiot can identify the fallacy in that argument. In the first place, a city can never belong to a people in the manner these people are claiming. Second, Jerusalem has been there long before David ever made it the capital of his kingdom, and since its establishment, its people have always lived there. They lived through the rise and fall of the Jewish Kingdoms, they lived through out the Romans, and the brief return of the Jews, and the subsequent Roman victory. They lived there through the Arab Caliphate, the crusades, the return of the Arabs and the Ottomans. They lived there through the British and Israeli occupations, and as they did previous conquerors, they will outlive the current ones.

Most importantly though, if the city so rightly belonged to the Jews, why do we see a vicious campaign to erect the Arabs? After all, if that claim was right, were did these Arabs come from?

Israel is clearly trying to change the whole face of Jerusalem, making it more Jewish than it has ever been. In the process, thousands of Arabs are losing their right to live in the city they called home, long before Israel was born. Their homes are being destroyed, and their families are split apart.

In Ma’amanillah, a commercial centre just outside Jaffa gate, I saw whole buildings which have been brought from elsewhere in Palestine and rebuilt as shops, malls and pubs. I thought how would the person who owned that house feel to see it moved from where he had built it, and used by someone else without him being consulted.

Yesterday, as I walked through the city, I noticed the Mezuzah at Jaffa Gate. As if, that gate was a gate to a Jewish home. I used to play around those gates, long before all those who touched it and kissed their hands came to this land. And now, I have to climb up and down the mountains to get there, while they can pass through the gate, and kiss their Mezuzah whenever they like.

In any case, her smile inside the old walls, where more than enough to deserve the climb to city.

The original inhabitants of Jerusalem were the Jebusites whom David conquered. They are now extinct. Jerusalem has been a Jewish city ever since then. 3 times a year, Jews from all over Israel would come to make pilgrimage at the Holy Temple. Until Judah's fall in the 6th century BCE at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, Jerusalem was the capital of the Jews. When the Jews returned from captivity in Babylon, they rebuilt the Temple again in Jerusalem and once again it became the center of Jewish life. For another 100 years under the Hasmoneans, it was the sovereign capital of Judah.

Jerusalem was never the capital of any Arab nation or state. It has only been a capital under the David dynasty, the Hasmonean kingdom and the modern State of Israel, the only 3 independent (all Jewish) states ever in the Land of Israel. The Arabs arrived in Israel in the 7th century, massacred the inhabitants, ransacked the land, and occupied Jerusalem. They have no connection to the Jebusites, and found Jews living there when they arrived. Besides a small period of time under the Romans when Jews were forbidden from living in Jerusalem, Jerusalem was never empty of Jews.

How many times is Jerusalem mentioned in the Qur'an? Jerusalem was the capital of which Arab nation? Jerusalem is the heart of the Jewish people. You are an occupier and an interloper. We will never be parted from Jerusalem again.

Ned dear - rest perfectly assured that what GOES around, COMES around, we don't have to even move ONE FINGER! It's called JUSTICE and those fullblown morons slandering your post (which I really enjoyed as a matter of fact!). It's a law of nature ... call it "carma" or "first law of Isaak Newton", it doesn't matter. If you drop a pebble in the middle of a large bowl, the ripples go out from just this point, edge on - and guess what? They return to JUST THAT POINT without people noticing it. What does that tell you? In simpler words: WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND ... and by gully, once THAT will happen, I won't have the desire to be in the shoes of ANY of those spiteful discriminators, haters, torturers, harassers, killers, humiliaters, racists and oppressors! Don't listen to them - they're not worth your time!

Jerusalem, BTW, is my absolutely favorite city ... I do know it rather well! :-)

Here is the deal: when Israeli students learn about Jerusalem in school, they are taught about the Moslem contributions to the city's history and development. When Arab students learn about Jerusalem, they are taught that the Jews never even had a temple there. If you are so worried about people understanding each other, why don't you work on getting your fellow Arabs to stop falsifying history?
