    Israel has never "claimed" Bethlehem and thus has never been in a position to "offer" Bethlehem to the Palestinians. Bethlehem is a Palestinian town, and what the Israelis are offering is to move their occupation forces out of it.

    SheEagle's rhetoric in the other thread on the "holy places" (with an far more inflammatory and misleading title) notwithstanding, it is probable that (even though the Christian population has shrunk a great deal relative to the Muslim population since the '67 war) if an end to the intifada can be achieved, most of the population of Bethlehem will be much more inclined to reestablish the tourist trade than to torch the tourists, just as in Egypt most of the population would rather make money off the Pharaohs than blow up those who want to gawk at the pyramids. At least I think it's a reasonable hope.

    The Recent Historical Record Speaks for Itself to those who will open their eyes and see.

    Oh, but you're so right, Haruo. Everyone knows Islam is the religion of "peace" and my remarks were inflammatory. Everyone knows what regard Muslims have for Christians and Jews. After all, we're all God's children and we're all bound for heaven or paradise or whatever we want to call it. So, once the PLO, al-Aqsa Martyr Brigade, Hamas, and Hezbollah and Palestinian Jihad get all they want, everyone will live together peaceably without any further homicide bombings or terrorist threats.

    I should show more love for the jihad terrorists and follow the lead of my President. How mean of me, how un-Christian of me.

    Have a nice day.
