The deeper cause is Netanyahu and most people on the right using lame arguments about Jerusalem such as "all PM's since '67 have authorized building in E.J. . . ." The strongest argument, indeed the only valid argument, is that Israel has the only valid claim to sovereignty in Jerusalem. Almost no one mentions that an individual's ownership of land has nothing whatever to do with a country's sovereignty over the land. Moreover, Jordan attacked Israel in '67, thereby losing any claim, along with Jordan's successors, to any possible claim of sovereignty. Israel refuses to defend its sovereignty over Jerusalem in a proper way--the fact that Jews love Jerusalem more than the entire world combined means nothing for sovereignty. Israel has sovereignty over Jerusalem because Israel is the only entity which has any valid claim to sovereignty over Jerusalem. QED.
