Argument: Palestinians in East Jerusalem will not tolerate Israeli governance
- Debate: Dividing Jerusalem - con argument.
Robert Sage. "Should Jerusalem be split between the Israelis and Palestinians?" Helium Election 2008 - "Palestinians would not consider leaving all of Jerusalem under the control of Israel to be a permanent solution. Simply put, continued Israeli security forces having control of Muslim areas would be a non-starter. They cannot be trusted by Muslims. They have not been fair or protective of Palestinians. Israeli officials have repeatedly been highly abusive of Palestinians. Also, Israeli security forces have been accepting of abusive Israeli civilian treatment of Palestinians."
