    Technically it may be true that Jerusalem has never been the capital city of any but that of the Jewish people, because one isn’t sure what city the many who controlled Jerusalem considered their capital. Abraham entered the land of Canaan c. 1935 B.C. There he was met and hosted by Melchizedek, a Jebusite king and priest. According to the Hebrew bible, the Jebusites built Jerusalem, and therefore presumably Jerusalem was the Jebusite capital. From 1935 B.C. until 2010 A.D (today) Jerusalem has been controlled by the Jebusites, Jews, Persians, Greeks, Maccabeans (Jews)Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Mamluks, Ottoman, and British, and from 1948 until today, Jews again. Over that span of 3,945 years, Jerusalem has been controlled by Jews for 625 years. The Jebusites controlled Jerusalem longer then the Jews. One wonders about the importance of who called Jerusalem their capital. Tel Aviv is currently the official capital of Israel.
