As the original trade route out of Africa, the land itself has had more owners than any strip of land on earth, so to say it was stolen is not completely accurate. Jerusalem belongs equally to Christians, Jews and Muslims who have traded ownership for over 3,000 years. Christians need to take a more active role in promoting the only solution that would satisfy everyone: two states and a shared Jerusalem. I do agree that the Jewish settlements only hurt the cause of peace. These should be stopped and dismantled. Palestinians, without question, deserve a country. Jerusalem belongs to the world.
