The Jerusalem Question: Cutting the Gordian Knot
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
This article will suggest an approach to this intractable problem through an examination of the current issues that must be addressed in a possible Jerusalem settlement after four bitter wars and 13 years of government under unified rule. Previous studies have generally concentrated on single issues or else blended all issues together. This latter approach tends to create the impression that the problem is indeed insoluble and that no compromise is possible. Through an examination of three predominant and distinct issues-sovereignty, municipal government, and the holy places-it will be possible to understand the contribution, or complication, that each brings to a possible settlement. Approaches to a compromise solution will then become clearer. Finally, after reviewing the pressures influencing a settlement we will be in a position to anticipate what lies ahead for Jerusalem.
