The pretext for not recognizing Jerusalem as capital is the UN Partition Resolution of 1947, which declared Jerusalem an international city.

It's high time Israel did something in protest, instead of sitting back passively and letting this charade go on. Perhaps Israel should move its US embassy to New York; its Russian embassy to St. Petersburg; its GB embassy to Sussex (Clickfool will rejoice, I'm sure); its French embassy to Marseilles, and the like.
