"Arab nations must educate their people about Jerusalem to evoke the importance of the city," Haniyeh insisted.
Haniyeh did not say whether that education should include archeological and historical evidence of the deep Jewish roots in Jerusalem dating back at least 3,000 years.
According to Gerald M. Steinberg, Jordan ransacked 57 ancient synagogues, libraries and centers of religious study in the Old City Of Jerusalem, 12 were totally and deliberately destroyed. Those that remained standing were defaced, used for housing of both people and animals. Appeals were made to the United Nations and in the international community to declare the Old City to be an 'open city' and stop this destruction, but there was no response

A parable should make the point clear: There's two boys and each have a claim to a certain toy. The first boy loves the toy very much and it's all he ever thinks about. Everyday the toy is on his mind. The other boy has two other toys which he plays with much more, and he even makes it known to the other boy that his toy is his least favorite of the three, yet, nonetheless, he makes a claim to the toy and expects the first boy to part ways with it. He wants all 3 toys and will do anything to get it - even if that means denying the history of love the first boy has for the toy.
