Stay away

"But to tell the truth about Jerusalem, we need courageous leaders, who of course are lacking. The truth is, no country in the world recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It has been destroyed by the occupation. It is divided, torn and scarred.
Its sanctity is a matter for believers only — and in any case there’s no connection between this and sovereignty. Its division into two capitals or its morphing into the capital of one state will be much less of a disaster than continuing its occupation.
Meanwhile, we can only stay away from it, as much as possible." 
Gideon Levy erklärt im Meinungsbeitrag für "Haaretz" (2. November), warum er Jerusalem so gut es geht meidet.
