The author takes position against a Palestinian-controlled Old Jerusalem, where all the holy and historical sites of Judaism stand. He states that Jerusalem is « holier » to Jews than to Muslims (ignoring the Palestinian Christian minority) and that it should be put under exclusive Jewish jurisdiction for that very reason. Wiezel also alleges that the Palestinian authority, since Israel's foundation in 1948, did not show any will for peace, therefore its people should not be given the right to control the Arab quarter of the city (East Jerusalem). Admitting the importance of peace in the region and for Palestinians to have a decent and secure place to live, he though opposes to « peace at any price » and to a massive return of the 600 thousand Arab refugees, invoking that such a situation would be a threat to Israelis' security, « just as cutting Jerusalem from its roots [Judaism] would be spiritual suicide ».
Since it is a comment, this article is by definition biased. It is though very interesting concerning the purpose of the present essay, which is approaching the problem in a human, rather than a political angle.
