The real mother

Many of you are probably familiar with the Judgment of Solomon (1 Kings 3). Two women come to King Solomon, each claiming a newborn baby. To resolve the dispute, Solomon proposes to cut the baby in half and divide him between the two mothers. One mother is eager for it to happen. The other mother would rather give up the baby than see him cut in half. Solomon understands that the second mother is the true mother.

In the Muqata, Jameel asks who the real mother of Jerusalem is as a starting point to a photo essay that reminds us what happened the last time the 'Palestinians' Arabs controlled half of Jerusalem. It's not pretty. But it must be seen.

"who the real mother of Jerusalem is?"

1. Jews
2. Arabs

Daniel: The real mother is the one not willing to divide it...and the one that prays towards it 3 times a day.

That should answer your question.

What I meant was that Jews are the true mother's , but that arabs come far closer than "Israelis" who would sell thier birthrite for a bowl of greencards. By Israelis I mean the Peres type.

Daniel: I guess that's why, when Shimon Peres was asked after the election in 1996, where he lost to Netanayahu, "Who Won, Who Lost?" -- he replied, "The Jews Won, the Israelis Lost"

YNet reported yesterday that some 54% of Israelis would like to have a foreign passport. Mostly US.

Moham-Mad prayed in the direction of Jerusalem originally. Then, when he failed to convert the local Jews to his new religion, he flew out in a temper tantrum and changed the direction of prayer to Mecca.

Zion's significance to the Muslims has been as a bargaining chip, and nothing else, ever since. They have no spiritual connection to it whatever.
