With so much focus on Israel and Jerusalem today, I recommend the book, My Life, by Golda Meir. I believe she had a ghost writer for this autobiography. It is especially well written and a fascinating story. I think it is maybe the best book on Jewish history, Israel's history, middle east politics, and the anti-Israel movement I have ever seen because a real person is the central figure going through it all. I couldn't put it down.
Assuming one is a Muslim one believes that all lands, all territories conquered by Muslims throughout history belong to the House of Islam, Dar al-Islam, for perpetuity. This is why Muslims expect to retrieve Spain and the Balkans as well. Jerusalem certainly falls into this category especially given the tale of Muhammad flying to heaven from there. The problem amounts to conflicting Divine real estate claims. Ultimately war is the only solution.
