Please forgive me if I appear thick here. I read that article. The last part reads like this, In July 1980 the Knesset passed the Basic Law - Jerusalem, which restated Israel's rights and obligations concerning the capital. The Law affirmed that the holy places of all religions be protected from desecration, free access to them be guaranteed, and the Government provide for the development and the prosperity of the city and the well-being of its inhabitants.
Why when Israel was recognized as a state in 1948 wasn't Jerusalem made the capital then? It was a contract right?
