Partially-complete building in Ramat Shlomo

Sixty-six percent of Israelis polled by a Geo-cartography Knowledge survey this week said they are against allowing the Palestinian Authority to have control of any part of the capital, whose reunification is being celebrated Tuesday night and Wednesday. The poll was carried out for Israel’s Channel 1 television.

Virtually the same number – 67 percent – told the pollsters that construction should not be frozen in any part of United Jerusalem.

An overwhelming 73 percent said they are against international control of holy places, which were restricted to Muslims under the Jordanian occupation before Israel opened up churches and synagogues for all visitors after the Six-Day War in 1967.
