Breaking: Israel May Give up Half of Jerusalem

This is heart-wrenching, but its not the end of the story. From MyWay News:

Senior Israeli officials expressed support Monday for the transfer of Arab parts of Jerusalem to Palestinian control, offering a concession on one of the most contentious issues in the Mideast conflict. The offer appeared to fall short of Palestinian calls for a full Israeli withdrawal from key areas of the holy city...Ahead of the talks, a confidant of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he has proposed in recent talks with Palestinian officials to turn over areas of east Jerusalem to the Palestinians. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war, as capital of a future independent state.

Giving up half of Israel hasn't placated the Palestinians, so you now offer them the Jewel in your crown? Good luck with that. A commenter at the Jerusalem Post added this:

When ye ... shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand.)
