If we don't have our embassy in Jerusalem, then why shouldn't Israel keep their embassy in Philadelphia, and refuse to recognize the fact that we moved our capital to Washington?
Understood. My reasoning is purely self-serving. I believe the future security of Israel depends on her being able to defend herself, and that Palestinians have failed to develop or maintain anything resembling a country. Gaza is totally dependent on the UN for support as it is, and it seems reasonable to leave the Palestinians there and let Jordan deal with them. The West bank, however, is too scattered throughout Israel and Israel needs a country border that makes sense without having the PA within her borders. (Similar to current problems with American Indians, but with more violence. Borders within borders creates its own set of problems and situations that are better avoiding if possible.)
Well taken point on our embassy in Jerusalem.
