As Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since 1948, and the vast majority of Jerusalem is within the recognized borders of Israel I don't see the issue with the USA recognizing this fact.

It need not concern anyone here, or anyone anywhere, where Trump decides the U.S. embassy in Israel should be housed.

NNN, AKA captain obvious and others

The question I asked was very simple, If the capital of Israel has been in West Jerusalem for 70yrs long before the occupation of the west bank and Gaza and is not claimed by the Palestinians, then what is the objection to the US recognizing this and moving its embassy there?

Dear Shadow Minister,

The Israeli parliament and many of its governmental institutions have always been in Jerusalem. The reason why most countries had refrained from siting their embassies there was to try and keep this as a bargaining chip for Israel to move towards a two state solution.

Now America has spent its chip without anything in return. That is their right but it is perfectly justifiable for the Palestinians and indeed other nations to be upset at this move. Let us hope Australia doesn't sycophantically follow suit although given Julie Bishop's track record this may be in vain.

Stupid primitives. Trying to bring about armageddon and the end of the world.
Time to end the primitives and their ancient beliefs in superfairies and their love of hatred and bigotry.
If you are a godbother you are the problem.
