The Question of Al-Quds / Jerusalem
I was just chatting with an Israeli blogger and we started talking about Jerusalem. As many of you know, Jerusalem is a big cause of strife for everyone. Palestinians and Israeli's consider this ancient city as their own capital.
Anyway, we started discussing about the control of the city. And I brought up that Jerusalem is a very holy city for city for all of the religions. And we started talking mainly about the churches, which are every where in E. Jerusalem, besides seeing mosques you see a lot of churches in East Jerusalem too (Arabic Side.) And I stated that I would like the Palestinian Authority to control East Jerusalem and make it its capital, of course, just as other Muslim Palestinians and Christian Palestinians believe...
Now, get ready for the shock response... He said to me "But we have many Christian Israeli's that are saying, WHAT? We want East Jerusalem because it's holy for the Christians."
My response was of course... WTF?
First of all... There are only two kinds of Israeli Christians. The first group are the Arab Christians, you know Palestinians, just like me, who never left there land when it was invaded. And then there are the immigrants. So what are we talking about here.
How ridiculous is this argument. The immigrants to the All-Jewish nation have a say for who controls E. Jerusalem. Give me a break! There is no such thing as a "real" Israeli Christian unless they are Palestinian Christians who never left the land and they wouldn't be saying that they want Israel to have control cause they are Palestinian anyway. My point is, I love how Israel uses its immigration policy to equal out things so that they can one day use it as a valid reason and some Americans (the largest supporter of Israel) will totally agree because they are in fact blind to the fact that they are pawns of Israeli anyway.
Oh, I just gotta say whatever and Jesus was a Palestinian so I don't think Jesus would approve of Israel running E. Jerusalem. No, I don't. Not by the people who crucified him.
This was totally a rant... He pissed me off... And you know who you are Mr. :P
(When I say Israeli, I am being general, not all Israeli's are cruel, as not all Palestinians are all koo-koo)
