Should Jerusalem be a divided City - Capital for Israel and for Palestine under a peace accord?

you do realize that Jerusalem is sacred to Christianity also. Not just Islam and Judaism. Jerusalem should be an open city.

Then all other cities that meet the same standard would also qualify as having to be open cities -

I am taking your meaning of open to be governed separately. If I am in error then let me know how you define an open city?

Should be a open city and It still could be the capitol of both Israel and Palestine. Just like the dog and the dolphin. But that would never happen, they are more like the Hatfield's and the McCoy's.

And what historical claim do the Palestinians have on Jerusalem?

None. Only Muslims, Christians and Jews hold claim to historical Jerusalem.

Wikipedia has an excellent article.
Palestine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jerusalem is clearly Roman, for is it not written "PALAESTINA*PROVINCIA*ROMANA*EST"?

One problem with the article - Some scholars do not agree with the Biblical claims of a Kingdom of Israel - Recent archaeological discoveries now substantiate that claim.

Now what are people going to do if God changes his/her mind - It is in the Bible I believe where God changed his mind. He could send another Prophet ya know.
