What other people other than the Jewish people have ever claimed Jerusalem as their single cultural, spiritual, and political capital? What other people other than Jews, have accomplished this three times in history. This is not to deny Arab/Pales history or basic rights, but Arab/Pales will have to accommodate the Jewish reality in Jerusalem, and the Jews will also have to respect the Arab/Pales reality. But this should not include "East" Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state.
