I think that Arabs and Israel shouldn't share Jerusalem because different religions don't cooperate well in the same place especially when they don't believe in the same god.

Wow there Mr/Mrs/Miss.

Muslims and the Jewish share the same God, they only have different thoughts about Jesus and the territory fighting between the two for centuries.

There is a way it could work. Jerusalem becomes its own place, like the Vatican but for everyone. Religious Intolerance should be handled with heavy punishment such as a jail time, a fine, or a deport out of the city.

Large religious places such as a statue or such, should remain open to both sides.

Places of worship between the two should be built together, not apart. That would only support separation.

The city should also shame extremism.

If the Arabs ruled the city, they'd kick out the Jews. The Jews are in charge, and they're making sure everyone's allowed in the city. In fact, what's unfair is that the Jews are not allowed onto the Temple Mount. I mean seriously, they could just build the Temple Mount right next to the Dome of the Rock. That is an injustice.

Palestinians have been living in that city for centuries, Israel invaded it.

Jerusalem is already being shared by Israel. the Vatican city has only one religion, so thing s have gone well so far. Jerusalem is shared by both Jews Muslims and Christians. To rule the city under Jewish or christian law would be exceptable, but if even a quarter of Muslim law is Incorporated into the ruling of that city, the affects could be disastrous.

Reasons for voting decision: Both Pro and Con forfeited the majority of the rounds, but in the one round they did participate in, Pro showed that having different religions is no reason to encourage division.
