A lost cause.
Obama will not back off Jerusalem as its a key part in the making of a peace process.
It really doesn't matter anymore if the Palestinians have any right to even claim Jerusalem as their own. It doesn't matter that Jerusalem as a whole is the most sacred place in Judaism, and as a non-believing fella I'd like to think that it means more than just a place of worship for religious nuts, as it means to me.
There are no other people in the world who have more right to have Jerusalem as their own than the Jewish people, and the supposed Palestinians are not really close to be in the head of the list. But as I've said, it doesn't matter anymore.
Israel retook Jerusalem, fought for it, paid with blood for it. If the ancient historical facts doesn't hold, than this should.
What has the Palestinians did for deserving Jerusalem as their capital? Facts show us nothing.
But again, it doesn't matter sadly.
Its easy for powerful people to play with things that doesn't belong to them. They need no excuses, as they could just sit back and urge their allies to back down more and more and give up the things that define them.
Facts mean jackshit.
