What are the Israelis thinking? How can they even consider dividing God's holy city of Jerusalem? It's unthinkable. There will certainly be hell to pay, all for an effort to make peace with an enemy who wants no peace, but only the complete annihilation of Israel.
Jerusalem belongs to the Jews and to the Jews alone. The Arabs only desire it because of its significance to the Jewish people. Jerusalem is not mentioned ONCE in the Koran.
And if President Obama is pushing for this in the meetings this week between Israel and the Palestinians, which is 99.99% likely, America is in deep trouble. If you think we are currently struggling economically, as well as with enemies abroad, you ain't seen nothing yet. In God's eyes, Jerusalem is the center of the earth. The wrath of God will fall upon ANY nation who messes with HIS holy city.

Dividing the Jews' eternal capital
By JENNIFER LASZLO MIZRAHI
"By coming to peace talks ready to discuss any issue including Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has followed in the footsteps of other Israeli prime ministers in showing he is serious about making peace with the Palestinians.
In a country deeply divided between religious and secular people, no issue unites Israelis (and Jews around the world) like the need to retain Jerusalem as their united, eternal and undivided capital. It is a belief built on 3,000 years of history -- and reinforced by bitter recent experience. Yet, in pursuit of peace, Defense Minister Ehud Barak yesterday outlined an extensive plan for how Jerusalem might be divided, as part of a comprehensive Palestinian-Israeli accord.
Jerusalem was King David's capital, the site of the First and Second Temples. Its surviving remnant, the Western Wall, remains the focus of daily prayer.
Even during long centuries of exile, a Jewish community held on in Jerusalem, sometimes under great persecution.
Yet, from 1948 to 1967 when Jordan controlled East Jerusalem, the city was divided by barbed wire and concrete barriers. Jews were barred from their holy places. The Jordanians destroyed 58 synagogues and desecrated an ancient Jewish cemetery.
Christians, who also cherish Jerusalem, faced restrictions such as strict limits on visitors, even at Christmas and Easter.
In contrast, Israel has always guaranteed free and safe access to people of all faiths.
Despite all this, Barak, then prime minister, offered wide-ranging concessions at Camp David in 2000. Recognizing that Palestinians wished to make part of the city, which they call Al Quds, capital of a new Palestinian state, he proposed to withdraw from some Arab neighborhoods and grant autonomy to others. The Palestinians would maintain control over their holy places and have 'religious sovereignty' over the Temple Mount -- if they were willing to agree to a comprehensive peace accord that recognized Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state.
Barak's offer included many other concessions of territory, if none as symbolically powerful as Jerusalem. Yet the Palestinian leader, the late Yasser Arafat, rejected the deal.
And quickly following the collapse of the Camp David talks was the Second Intifada (uprising) -- during which Palestinian suicide bombers time and again intentionally slaughtered civilians. In all, more than 1,000 Israelis were killed in those terrible years.
Despite two terror attacks in two days this week, Israel stands ready to make peace.
Once again, an Israeli leader is willing to go anywhere, anytime, and discuss anything -- including Jerusalem. When will Palestinians say yes to peace?"
