Any one who supports this bill does not want peace in the Holy Land. It's already over 20 years that those who espouse to continuing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, want to deflect the major obstacle in the whole peace agreement, and that is the status of Jerusalem for both Jews and Muslims. It is not only up to the current Knesset body to dictate how Jerusalem should be signified and utilized by all its inhabitants, mainly Jews, Muslims and Christians. All Israeli Government peace proposals entailed sharing the capital one way or another, and therefore this bill proposal is redundant to bring to fruition to a vote in Knesset.
