Israel goes on and on with this "eternal capital" stuff, ad nauseum, while the palestinians insist that East Jerusalem is their capital. Israel's goal is to make sure that does not happen. It does this through various ploys. Surround Jerusalem with more Jews only colonies, cut off EJ from the WB and by doing so work toward reducing the Muslim and Christian populations of the Old City and environs of Jerusalem. Keep the Old City and Bethlehem cash cows for Christian tourism, museum pieces to be trotted out as evidence how religions have such freedom in the Jewish State of Israel.
