    Obama never said, nor implied, Jews are not allowed in Jerusalem. He is simply demanding that Israel show some acknowledgment of international law governing the city. Israel is a state lacking any legal basis for sovereignty in Jerusalem. UN resolution 181, under which Israel declared statehood, declared Jerusalem to be an international city, "corpus separatum," managed under UN auspices. For Israel to build there is a violation of the 4th Geneva Convention, and breaches of articles of the Convention can be considered a war crime. In 1980 the Knesset passed the "Basic Law" which declared Jerusalem complete and unified the capital of Israel. UNSC 478 declared the Knesset Basic Law "null and void." A well-written column by Burston. Only one thing wrong with it. Jews didn't build Jerusalem. The semite tribe, the Jebusites, built the city and inhabited it for over 100 years after the Israelites arrived in Canaan.
