The current Democratic Party is not part of America? Like, a major part?
"President Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and our party platform should as well," former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland
The Democratic National Convention Platform was read by Obama and his team - if he had a fervent belief in Jerusalem being the capital of Isreal why didn't they demand that change be made before the Platform was presented to all?
How do you even say that non Israeli populations have a stronger claim to Jerusalem...hello??? Revisionist history??
We absolutely have the right to identify Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Should other countries not recognize Washington D.C. as our capital because the Piscataway indians lived there first?
It was a key city for the Canaanites in the 13th century BC before King David. There was a series of cultural exchanges after that, all long before Israel was established via UN decree as a nation.
Yes, there is a lot of history there. You could make the same statement about many places in the world. Should we not recognize every nation's capital that has a history of multiple cultures? Again, what about Washington D.C.?
Isn't that part of the problem in the first place? We're always worried about what the international community wants us to do. When did we lose our leadership in this community? Really? We're making political decisions based on the Olympics?
I see the Olympics as the greatest prevention to war that humans have yet created. Rather than acting out our human aggressions by constantly attacking each other, look at all the countries that now strive to excel against each other in sports.
