    Israel's capital has always been Jerusalem.

    Peace cannot happen until the elephant in the room is addressed. Many islamic countries dont recognize israel and will not no matter what. Despite land, money and aid missiles and terrorist continue.

    Trump is probably looking for a quick way to scupper Kushner's peace talks, so that he can let him go before he gets indicted. I mean, why did he wait until Day 319? Wasn't recognizing Jerusalem another of his 'on Day One' pledges?

    That's the Netanyahu-Trump line, but as explained it has no basis in international law, and means nothing. Trump's statement sounds historic, but it's not the beginning of a trend. 192 out of 194 countries will continue to recognise Tel Aviv as Israel's capital until 2020, when the number will most likely revert back to 193.


    I wont change your name to mock you. Shows how naive and classless you are.
    International law does not dictate where a capital is. And International law doesn't dictate where the US puts its embassy either.
    In 1995 Congress passed a resolution stating that it should be US foreign policy that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
    In June of 2017, congress passed.
    Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.

    It passed 90 to 0. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-resolution/176/text/is?format=xml&overview=closed

    It re affirmed the 1995 vote, stating its the capital. Presidents up until now have "waived" it. Trump decided it had not lead to anything .

    Ironic how a Brit cites international law and land obtained through war. Even in the modern error "Falkland islands"

    For the history buffs, note that we are 3-days shy of the 100th anniversary of Jerusalem's liberation from the Ottoman/German/Arab occupation.

    In the picture below, the Arab mayor (wearing a Turkish Fez in middle) surrenders the city.
    Jerusalem then had a Jewish majority, but Jews were barred from holding such political office.

    LOL. As usual, I address the topic and reference other discussions, and the AyaTrolLiar JTheM spends paragraphs and hours seeking to re-discuss what is in those threads, regurgitating his propaganda here where it hasn't yet been discredited.

    AyaTrolLiar> thinks international law is the purview of Amnesty International

    A1. Of course I never said so. I reasoned through why certain actions are illegal, quoting from international treaties, and confirming that AI agreed with me. In contrast, the AyaTrolLiar - that "all around shitty excuse for a human being" - blathered that civilians are legitimate targets, including children. (Edit: He also sees nothing wrong with Hizbullah recruiting 16 year olds in Lebanon and shipping them off, with little training, to die as canon fodder in Syria - while allegedly holding back their elite troops to be ready to attack Israel.)


    AyaTrolLiar> Anyone surprised to see an Israeli commemorating the British Empire (the most bloodthirsty world power of the age) expanding its reach into the Middle East in 1917?

    A2. Never one for consistency, when it was the so-called "Great Arab Revolt" helping the British... he boasted of their (minimal) accomplishments.

    The Great Arab Revolt that Wasn't
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4289450

    A3. When I pointed out that there were 300,000 Arabs in the Ottoman Army - including the Arabs of what became Mandate Palestine, he sought to put them in the British camp so as to be worthy recipients of British "promises" had they fought on their side (rather than against them).

    Promises, Promises: The McMahon Correspondence
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4284722

    A4. Of course, what happened after WW I was the principle of self-determination, with the British serving as a (temporary) mandatory power (custodians) of a mandate (trust territory). But don't anyone interrupt the flunky's meanderings with historical fact.


    After its illegal seizure by Trans/Jordan in 1948, this became known as "eastern Jerusalem" (or, after the expulsion of the Jews, so-called "Arab East Jerusalem").

    A5. In the picture [above], the Arab mayor (wearing a Turkish Fez in middle) surrenders the city.
    Jerusalem then had a Jewish majority, but Jews were barred from holding such political office.


    AyaTrolLiar> certainly not an "ethnic" majority
    AyaTrolLiar> a religious plurality

    A6a. In 1896 Jews constituted 28,112 of 45,420. That's 62%, a majority.

    A6b. The 1905 Ottoman census only counted citizens, and most Jews - dhimmis - thus didn't count.
    Still there were 13,300 out of 32,400 - 41%.
    How many Jews weren't counted?
    The total population dropped by 13,020.
    The Jewish population dropped by 14,812.
    So already we see a close correlation.
    Even if we take the lower figure of 13K (vs nearly 15K), we get 58%.
    With the higher figure, we get 60%.

    A6c. In 1922, we have a good British Census.
    Jews accounted for 33,971 of 62,578 = 54%

    A6d. By now only a flunky idiot would be trying to twist things to make it appear that Jews during these decades weren't the majority population in Jerusalem. In 1944, on the eve of the partition, Jews accounted for 62% of the population.


    AyaTrolLiar> Some Jewish legacy in the city.

    A7. In a city that just celebrated 3,000 years, the flunky idiot thinks a "legacy" is about his twisted version of events in "a quarter century".


    Then start the lies about 1947-48, which of course he dare not post in the proper thread:

    As noted, Jerusalem is in fact Israel's political capital. Has been for 70 years.
    (And, of course, the Jewish capital for thousands of years beforehand.)


    Covfefe> Today Jerusalem is divided into two areas West and East.

    C1. Jerusalem was only divided from 1948 until it was unified in 1967.


    Covfefe> Jerusalem was supposed to be an international city for both people in the 1947 UN partition plan

    C2. A basic misunderstanding of the 1947 UN partition compromise, which kept all of western Mandate Palestine for everyone. All could remain where they were if they so chose. While it envisioned an Arab state and a Jewish state, members of each group on the "wrong" side of the partition could stay in their homes.

    C3. Jerusalem, despite the city's Jewish majority, was gerrymandered into a larger district with an Arab majority.


    Covfefe> East Jerusalem (including the old city of Jerusalem) is part of the occupied Palestine

    C4. When and how did eastern Jerusalem - that's the part illegally seized by Trans/Jordan in 1948, which includes the ancient Jewish Quarter - become "Palestine"?

    C5. Was eastern Jerusalem also "occupied Palestine" from 1948-1967?

    C6. Why isn't it "occupied Corpus Separatum"?


    Covfefe> West of Jerusalem is part of Israel.

    C7. So what's the problem moving the American embassy to Israel's capital in western Jerusalem which "is part of Israel"?


    Covfefe> The Congress in the United States is overwhelmingly supportive of Israel.... Congress is Israeli occupied territory.

    C8. Cute but vapid sloganeering. Congress overwhelmingly supports Israel because the American people overwhelmingly support Israel. Congress would be "occupied" (by Jew-haters posing as being anti-Israel) if it didn't support Israel.

    Jerusalem was supposed to be an international city for both people in the 1947 UN partition plan, but today Jerusalem is divided into two areas West and East. East Jerusalem (including the old city of Jerusalem) is part of the occupied Palestine... The boundaries are defined by the 1967 borders, which correspond with the Green Line. That is why the world and the Palestinians are upset. West of Jerusalem is part of Israel.

    Map:
    map4.jpg
    That light blue shaded are Israeli illegal settlements.
    The United Nations was dead wrong for dividing Jerusalem in the first place and they really fucked up by erroneously putting the old city into East Jerusalem rather than in West Jerusalem where it logically and rightfully belongs. The international city proposal would have worked if the UN established its world headquarters in Jerusalem rather than in the city that didnt deserve it, New York City. But that is water under the bridge and you cannot change historical events. Jerusalem needs to remain permanently undivided and officially recognized as Israel's national capital city. However, Israel can have all of Jerusalem they must be compelled to withdraw from all the other occupied territories in exchange for the eastern side of Jerusalem.

    The UN didn't partition the city. The Arabs did, after violently rejecting the UN partition compromise and attacking the Jews.

    Amen.


    RoadBikeRob> However, Israel can have all of Jerusalem they must be compelled to withdraw from all the other occupied territories in exchange for the eastern side of Jerusalem.

    So because you believe Israel should get what should have been its in the first place, it must automatically withdraw from everywhere else? Including Hebron, Gush Etzion and Ariel? And you would uproot hundreds of thousands of Jews to establish such a "peace"?

    The solution isn't much different and goes back to the Clinton Parameters: Whats Arab to the Arabs, what's Jewish to the Jews.

    Thus Arab neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem (e.g. Abu Dis) can go to a Palestinian Arab state, they can call it "Al Quds" and make it their capital if they wish. (Though note that Jerusalem never served as an Arab capital.)

    Ironically, many Arabs in those areas have sought Israeli citizenship so if that happens, they can leave their homes and neighborhoods to move elsewhere in Israel.

    Likewise many Arabs just on the Israeli side of the 1949 Armistice line dread being ceded to the Palestinian state, seeking to remain in "apartheid" Israel where life is and will remain much better. In Um el Fahm, 90% wanted their city to stay in Israel.

    1. ‘Recognized international borders’

    Right. They need to be negotiated.

    2. ‘Two states for two peoples’

    One Jewish state, one Arab state.

    3. ‘Realistic solution for refugees’

    Right. That doesn't mean Israel has to admit millions of refugees/descendants, almost numbering its current population.

    4. ‘Jerusalem capital of two states’

    As I said, if a future Palestinian Arab state wants to call Al Quds its capital, I'm not going to complain.
    Unlike the you who complain that Israel calls Jerusalem its capital or that the world has tired of pretending it isn't.

    5. ‘Satisfy Israel’s security needs’

    Yup.

    6. ‘Normalized relations’

    Yup.


    So how do you think we get there from here?
    Through more suicide bombings, intimidation and rockets?
    By Iran arming Hizbullah?
    By walking out of and sabotaging negotiations, seeking to go to the UN without first making peace?

    1. ‘Recognized international borders’
    Right. They need to be negotiated.


    Covfefe> taking over East Jerusalem and surrounding area in the Palestinian occupied territories while claiming it is Israel's land is not negotiating.

    But eastern Jerusalem only became so-called "Arab East Jerusalem" after the Jews were ethnically cleansed in 1948.
    After the Arab parties refused to negotiate and started a war.
    And after the war they refused to negotiate and make peace.
    Instead planning further wars and further peace rejections.

    The point is that "recognized international borders" need to be negotiated.
    The longer you eschew negotiations in favor of violence, the less there will be left to negotiate over.


    2. ‘Two states for two peoples’
    One Jewish state, one Arab state.


    Covfefe> It seems to me Israel wants a one state solution.

    Oh, dear, he forgets that he's the one who has advanced that all along.
    Even though he can't support it:

    3. ‘Realistic solution for refugees’
    Right. That doesn't mean Israel has to admit millions of refugees/descendants, almost numbering its current population.


    Cofvefe> Refugees cause of ongoing ethnic cleansing in Israel and Palestine.

    You're the one who wants to ethnically cleanse Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem of Jews.


    4. ‘Jerusalem capital of two states’
    As I said, if a future Palestinian Arab state wants to call Al Quds its capital, I'm not going to complain.
    Unlike the you who complain that Israel calls Jerusalem its capital or that the world has tired of pretending it isn't.


    Covfefe> Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital without other side agree with is absurd and injustice.

    That's silly. There is no reason not to recognize Israel's capital of 70 years because the Palestinian Arabs act like violent children and, generation after generation, refuse to make peace and establish their own state and capital.


    5. ‘Satisfy Israel’s security needs’
    Yup.


    Covfefe> ?


    6. ‘Normalized relations’
    Yup.


    Covfefe> ?


    So how do you think we get there from here?
    Through more suicide bombings, intimidation and rockets?
    By Iran arming Hizbullah?
    By walking out of and sabotaging negotiations, seeking to go to the UN without first making peace?


    Covfefe> If Israel end its brutal illegal occupation, discrimination against Palestinians and Lebanese then there will be no suicide bombers, intimidation, rockets, and Hizballah or Hamas. You should look at your own backyard you know? Understand what causing the violence, they don't do the violence for no reason.

    ROTFL.

    The Arab violence and terrorism pre-dates the "occupation".
    If it's so "brutal", why reject out-of-hand a peace offer that only gave you 99.5%?

    If you were a bona fide victim of "apartheid", "ethnic cleansing", "land theft", "starvation", "massacres" let alone "genocide", would you reject out-of-hand a compromise that only gave you 99.5%?
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4180210

    Never mind that the international consensus (UNSCR 242) is that first peace is made and then Israel withdraws, but it's the only logical solution. How can Israel withdraw to borders before they are negotiated?!
