What a City

So Netanyahu had previously stated that Jerusalem will never again be divided. And now, Fatah says that Jerusalem is a red-line for negotiations -- not that it gets East Jerusalem as a capital, apparently, but all of it. Even West Jerusalem over the Green Line (sounds like Fatah dreams of an occupation of its own).

What a shame. The Fatah conference really did hold some potential to take a step forward in this conflict. Instead, they took a position that is clearly untenable under any legal or moral standard and raised it up to the level of primary principle.

What a shame.
