It's easy to forget that "Jerusalem" means "City of Peace." Was there ever a place more wrongly named?

Hard to forget that at first, until you know it.  I never knew Jerusalem meant peace, that ranks pretty high on the irony scale.

 

Peace ≠ religion

 

The only reliable way to establish peace in Jerusalem would be to ban from the city all persons who believe in the existence of sky monsters.   Of course I do not recommend this, because theists need a place to live, but still.

That would be like banning mentally ill people from psychiatric hospitals. I think the results would be similar.

Maybe Jerusalem should be declared a mental hospital; and surrounded by barbed wire.
