As much as it painful, undiplomatic, tactless, the message by the goverment here is clear and to the point: Jerusalem is the Jewish capital of Israel, and there should be no question that Jews will inhabit their uncestoral capital, where Jewish kings reined like David, and Solomon from the beggining of time. Actualy this might make things easy for Biden, when he visits Arabia. As an educated lady you know the say of Marcus Aurelius : for everything there is a reason, and Biden is a very smart man. To you Confiusius will say when angry people speak not from reason but emotions. We have only one place that belong to us in every book in history, and that is Jerusalem, its not ever mentioned in any Muslim book including the Qura'an. So what is wrong for Jews to live in Jerusalem? Do we need permission from the world to live in our own eternal capital? Show me one document in history that prove otherwise and I will accept your argument.
