Mr. President Jerusalem Is A Free and Open City

In his much ballyhooed speech to the Muslim world President Obama said, "when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together ..."

Clearly President Obama thinks that Jerusalem is not a secure and welcome city for all people.
That this a goal to be achieved in the future.

President Obama is clearly confusing the pre-1967 Jerusalem with the Jerusalem of today.

Before Israel unified the Holy City Jews were prohibited from entering Jerusalem and Christians were restricted.

From 1948 until 1967, Jerusalem was ruled by Muslims, Muslims who ejected Jews from their homes, and destroyed practically any remnant of the Jewish community that thrived there prior to 1948.

Since 1967, Jerusalem has been a secure home for Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
