Hebron and Jerusalem

Via Instapundit: Michael Totten posts an essay on Jews in Hebron.  I didn’t know there is nearly a thousand Jews living there right now.  In conclusion Totten quotes Yaakov Lozowick on what seems now as inevitable forthcoming division of Jerusalem:

Because Hebron, historian Yaacov Lozowick wrote, “is what happens when Israelis and Palestinians agree to divide a city, but can’t agree to live together in peace. The blame for lack of peace is irrelevant: each side will doubtlessly say it’s all the fault of the other, but the result won’t be any nicer thereby. The myriads of observers, pundits, politicians, dreamers, visionaries and true believers who all know for a certainty that dividing Jerusalem is the key to peace in the Middle East need urgently to visit Hebron.”
