Jerusalem is not the capital of the USA neither is it the legal capital of Israel. Every UN member has an obligation to abide by UN resolutions. That is why the US embassy is in Tel Aviv and not in Jerusalem. Israel is a state lacking any legal basis for sovereignty in Jerusalem. UNSC resolution 181, under which Israel declared statehood, declared Jerusalem to be an international city, "corpus separatum," managed under UN auspices. In 1980 the Knesset passed the "Basic Law" which declared Jerusalem, complete and unified, the capital of Israel. The Basic Law is a violation of UN Security Council resolutions 476 & 478 and thus a violation of Article 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention, and therefore a war crime. UNSC resolution 478 declared the Knesset Basic Law "null and void" and 476 declares any demographic changes in Jerusalem a violation of international law and a serious violation of the Geneva Convention. Breaches of articles of the 4th Convention are considered war crimes.
