A better idea would be for the Arabs and their international supporters, including the author of this article, to recognize reality. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for more than sixty years and has been a united city for more than forty. It has a democratically-elected mayor and city council. All attempts to bomb it into a Palestinian state have failed and all available evidence shows that the vast majority of Jerusalem residents, including Arabs, do not want to live under Palestinian rule. When the Arabs are ready for peace with Israel they will be ready to recognise reality and the reality is that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. That is not because of the holy places but because of the Knesset, which is the only democratic parliament in the Middle East: in Jerusalem. If there is going to be a Palestinian state, for the first time in history, it will establish its capital in an Arab city, for example Ramallah which is already the capital of the Palestinian Authority.
