I don’t know how much of Jerusalem Olmert plans to give away to the enemy, but I decided to look at some maps to get some idea of what they are probably talking about, and who it would affect.

This first map shows the current Jerusalem Municipality, as well as the division of Jerusalem from 1949 to 1967. And the major neighborhoods both before and after.

I couldn’t overlay this next map on top of the map above, but using the various neighborhoods directly you’ll get the idea easily enough what goes where.
(Best to use Gilo, the Old City, and the Atarot Airport as a guideline.)

Below is an old map from 2000, showing one of the discussed divisions of Jerusalem.

Note how Gilo, Ramat Rachel, Atarot, Pisgat Zeev, Givat Zeev, The Hebrew University (Mount Scopus), Har Homa, Ramot, French Hill, Sanhedria, Ramat Eshkol, The Mount of Olives, and many other Jerusalem neighborhoods suddenly find themselves isolated, cut off, and in some cases, without even an access corridor!

Only an idiot would think about doing this to Jerusalem - or an enemy.

Jerusalem is holy to Jews, but means nothing o Israelis. They have no problem giving it up.

You have to be insane to think that this sort of division is something that can provide a stable, long-term solution. Even if Olmert does give away neighborhoods of Jerusalem and give them a state, it's obvious that the events of June 1967 and September 2000 will repeat themselves: the Arabs will attack and after suffering casualties for a period of time Israel will reconquer the areas that were given away.

There's not enough room here for two viable states. It's either Israel or Palestine. No amount of walls, fences, checkpoints, negotiations and agreements will change this.
