LINK July 27th, 2005 Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia Wednesday said Israel's planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip would eventually lead to its surrender of the Jews' ancient capital – Jerusalem. “We are telling the entire world, today Gaza and tomorrow Jerusalem. Today Gaza and tomorrow and independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital,” Qureia said while reviewing PA security forces in Gaza. He insisted the Palestinian Arabs would never agree to end their hostility towards the Jews until the holy city was relinquished to their control. “Without Jerusalem there will be no peace,” said Qureia a day earlier, amid reports Israel planned to build a new Jewish housing structure in the so-called “Muslim Quarter” of Jerusalem's Old City. Israeli leaders from both the right and left of the political spectrum have for decades stated Israel would never agree to re-divide its “eternal capital.” Pointing to the looming Gaza-Samaria withdrawal, however, members of Israel's ruling Likud Party are now warning that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon could be the one to attempt such a move in a misguided push for peace. Last month, Sharon's deputy, Ehud Olmert, put forward the idea that the predominantly Arab neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem could be surrendered to PA control. Olmert's public comments have long been recognized as a testing ground for future Sharon policies.
