Howdy Irish; There are two Central American countries which have their embassies in Jerusalem and, therefore, recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. If the Palestinians want sovereignty over East Jerusalem, they will have to take it by force. Contrary to your claim that East Jerusalem has a Palestinian majority, the latest figures that I have seen indicate that the population of East Jerusalem is about 50-50 between Israelis and Palestinians. The high Palestinian birthrate is a detriment not an asset. The only thing that it does is to ensure that the majority of the Palestinians will be in abject poverty in perpetuity.
