Why should Jerusalem be the capital of a Caliphate or anything else? Jerusalem was under the control of Moslems for over 1000 years and was never made a capital of any independent entity. So why now? Because the Jews came back to it. That's the only reason. It's a thumbing of the nose at the God of Israel, that's what this all is. When Jesus was on the cross the rulers of the Jews said, "He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God." Now the enemies of Israel say the same to God's chosen people, provoking God, not knowing that the Jews now are what Jesus was then.
