    This move is a blessing though it will take a few years to accomplish. Wouldn't Israel have to do its part in officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital?

    They already did.
    It dramatically reduced the number of suicide bombers.

    I believe that was already constructed. And by Israel on what is called the green line on the west bank.

    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?

    The muslims have Mecca. Mohamud faced Jerusalem then turned from Jerusalem when rejected and faced Mecca. Mecca is the religions Holy Capital City.

    The Jews have always looked at Jerusalem as there capital.

    Muslims first worshipped facing Jerusalem, then Mohamud was rejected and the rules changed and they faced Mecca in worship.

    If muslims face mecca in worship then that is the religions Holy Capital City. Not Jerusalem.

    That is incorrect. Mohammad tried that in an attempt to entice Jews into accepting Islam.
    It didn't work so he went back to praying toward Mecca.
