|Bus Was Target of Terror Attack (ABC News)|
'Dividing capital into Arab and Jewish municipalities is the only way to end bloodshed'If anything it will only make the situation worse. Also, it will just strengthen the terrorists by proving to the Arabs that terror pays. Giving the Arabs status as rulers over parts of Jerusalem goes against every principle for a strong, safe and united Israel.
Indicating that physically dividing the capital would be impractical, if not impossible, Margalit argued that a “functional division” must be implemented through the creation of two autonomous Arab and Jewish municipalities.
“It’s impossible to physically divide the city,” he said. “Instead of walls, the idea is to create Palestinian neighborhoods that will become part of the ‘Palestinian Municipality of Jerusalem,’ and Jewish neighborhoods will remain the Israeli Municipality of Jerusalem.
“So, in one [physically] united city, there will be two municipalities, and the same city will become the capital of two nations.” (Jerusalem Post)
Arabs don't "resort to terrorism." Their culture is violent, and job and education status are not the crucial factors in whether or not someone will be a terrorist. This is what any intelligent objective person should learn from those Arabs who perpetrate terror attacks in recent years. If anything, the more comfortable and successful Arabs are the most vicious terrorists, and that is why we are seeing younger and younger Arabs joining their ranks.
Making Arabs responsible for their own garbage collection, sewer repairs etc. will not keep them from attacking innocent Jews. It will only weaken Israel's international status and encourage the Arabs to attack us even more.
