    I'd like to know what they teach you in history. With the exception of about 25 years Jordan was approximately 78% of historic Palestine. Its people are Palestinians. Why do you say it isnt Palestine? As for East Jerusalem not being part of Israel. Thats because under British and Arab occupation it was ethnically cleansed of its Jews, who by the way, were the majority or plurity in ALL of the city for the past 200 years. Check out the the census. As for the world recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It really isnt a question for the world. The US picked Washington as its capital. Israel picked Jerusalem. The world doesnt pick the capital of a country. Thats interence in another country and is against the law. When Europeans, especially British, learn a little history, maybe they can play a role in the Middle east, but to date, they have done little except make it worst. Stay out with your colonies and take your Arabian colonies with you.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
