    One has to take your words, much like Obamas words, with a bit of salt. Prior to the Presidents win in the general election, Obama stood at AIPAC expressing his support for an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State. The development of the past few months raises questions as to whether the president has a plan to deal with the Palestinian Israeli conflict. Many experts do not buy it, defining his positions on the conflict as "talking points" and nothing more. In this piece, you are asking your readers to join a herd whose pastor has no direction. The Jews have roamed the world in exile. We have a nation state and we have our capital. We need not roam the world again herded by false agendas and prophets. In your attempt to point to the obvious that Jerusalem is a house of prayer to all people, you ignore the history behind a divided Jerusalem, of which Jews and Christians were denied the right to not only dwell but to freely worship our G-d as our creator intended.
