    "The Palestinian State`s capital was defined as East Jerusalem. Israel`s capital was decided to be Tel Aviv. Amman is capital of a country called Jordan. Which is completely separate from the current Palestinian and Israeli conflict." (143) 1.) Jordan is part of the actual problem - it was illegally carved out from the Palestine Mandate by the British (Against the terms and conditions of the mandate). To actually solve today's problem, Jordan ought to be included in a negotiated solution. 2.) Jerusalem was never supposed to be a Palestinian capital, not according to any plan. It supposed to be an international administrated entity according to the division plan from 1947 but the Arabs have refused that plan anyway and started a war against Israel. That plan that u keep referring to is therefore null and void. During the Islamic era and later in the Ottoman empire, Jerusalem played an religious but never a political role. Ramallah used to be the political and administrative center!
