So the Arabs should have Spain?
The Spain/Mexico should have Texas/California?
Austria should have half eastern Europe?
Morocco half of the countries south of the Sahara?
And Kenya should have the whole world since the first people came from their? (according to kobe4life the began with such plan and already have one of them as a president of the USA).

Israel has never ever offered half of Jerusalem.
Israel just added a lot of the smaller villages and hills from the West Bank to Jerusalem (and built settlements their). in Camp David 2000 (i think that what u refer to) they offered some of these places back (nothing from the old Jerusalem, and not a single guarantee to access the Christian/Islamic holy places). And the Palestinian should gave instead some land from the West Bank.
Btw if the Palestinians agreed, they would have taken this land after 25 years. And as usual Israel had some big If's
and In Case's
that if happened would delay/nullify the agreement.
pls don't just repeat what u hear in (US) news. If u want to comment on such a complex subject try to read other sources (including Israeli newspapers and TV's). They write with less bias than US media.
