    This board is regularly spattered with posts about the abuse Israel heaps on her non-Jewish citizens. Invariably their arguments are destroyed by more knowledgeable people but the article below was authored by a self-described "Arab-Muslim-Palestinian" citizen of Israel.
    Should we believe the venonmous camel crap of those who spew their hate for Israel and Jews here or Mr. Toameh? The choice is yours. :D

    Ask the Arabs of East Jerusalem: Should Jerusalem Be Redivided? :: Gatestone Institute

    Ask the Arabs of East Jerusalem: Should Jerusalem Be Redivided?
    by Khaled Abu Toameh

    "...In addition, the negotiators must concede the possibility of asking the Arab residents of the city about their preferences. There is no reason why more than 200,000 Arabs in Jerusalem should be denied the right to voice their opinion on a matter that has a direct affect on their lives and future.

    This can be done through a referendum where the Arab residents would be asked if they would like to live in a divided city under the rule of the Palestinian Authority or Hamas. Most likely, a majority of the Arab residents would say that they prefer the status quo to the other options.

    Most Arabs in the city prefer to live under Israeli rule for a number of reasons. First, because as holders of Israeli ID cards they are entitled to many rights and privileges that Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip don't enjoy. They include freedom of movement and social, economic, health and education services that Israeli citizens are entitled to.

    Redividing Jerusalem means bringing either the Palestinian Authority of Hamas into the city. The Arab residents of Jerusalem have seen what happened in the West Bank and Gaza Strip over the past 16 years and are not keen to live under a corrupt authority or a radical Islamist entity..."

    Indeed, partition has been a bad idea since 1937.

    "because as holders of Israeli ID cards they are entitled to many rights and privileges that Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip don't enjoy."

    This is why arabs would want to live under Israeli rule. That and the fact that a play for arab independence will bring the IDF to their house to bulldoze it. So it's basically out of fear.

    Khartoum has something like that to say about Sudan----- and for obvious reasons---tinnie ---agrees

    ----as to the millions who died in Biafra------the fact is that they could have been saved by an enforced partition-----but to the delight of tinni-types-------more than a million babies starved to death or were thrown into bonfires

    Not Israel's fault most countries under Muslim rule are cesspools of corruption, oppression, and hate. No wonder the Arabs want to live under Israeli rule.

    This immediatly brings up the question, if a REFERENDUM was held and the Arabs decided that they wanted to devide the city would and should Israel Honor the referendum . I would like Hoss, Say-it, and MJB to reply, thank you.

    pat supports referedums----between conflicting parties as to their respective survival ---how fascinating what a marvelous idea-------put south sudan again Lets ask all the muslims and chritians of sudan-----"SHOULD KHARTOUM CONTINUE TO CONTROL SOUTH SUDAN?

    Auschwitz was un needed------Pat's hero could asked the Germans to vote on the question
    SHOULD ALL JEWS COMMIT SUICIDE ------and leave to us all they possess?

    If---in 1901----The residents of New York City were asked "should we allow Irish immigrants in or let those in stay" there would be no St Patrick's cathedral and no St Patrick's day PARADE---in New York City

    Yeah, since there are more Arabs and Muslims like 1.2 billion of them, verses 6 million Israelis...let's have a referendum! Why not? Ha ha ha.

    The above two posts by irosie and Roudy are typical nonsense from two of the board idiots !!! The referendum I was referring to was the one referred to by Say-it in the op and copied by me in my post. I would suggest to both of them that if they are going to open their mouths they should try to know what the subject is about. IDIOTS
