  • The U.S. embassy to Israel has moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Here's how this sacred city factors into a conflict 70 years old.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOWhen President Trump's administration announced the move in 2017, it also officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. And while Israeli leaders celebrated, Palestinians denounced the move.That's because both Israelis and Palestinians consider Jerusalem as their rightful capital. Jerusalem is home to important holy sites for all the Abrahamic religions, and so it has become a critical bargaining chip in the ongoing discussion between the two sides.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Moving the embassy is controversial, breaking with decades of official US policy — and it comes at a particularly tumultuous time for Israel and the region. Read more on Vox.com: http://bit.ly/2k3pFIE

    Jewish King David commenced construction of the 1-st Jewish Temple in Jerusalem 1000BC or 1700 years before Muhammad. Jerusalem will never be a capital of any Arab country. Age of oil is almost over and nobody will pay for the camels crap that Arabs have in abundance. Therefore, nobody soon would care what Muslims think.

    @Mimi Maroua there's no such thing as Palestinians they were invented by entitieshostile to the world. So calledPalestinians are actually Jordanians with an adopted Moniker. They're started warswith Israel since its inception.They can't win on the battlefield so they like toslaughter innocents. Islam,the cult of death. They worship and March around a black rock. That shows they're livingin the 5th century.

    *Wishful Thinking*It would be great if Jerusalem was like the Vatican. If it was just an independent city state which allowed anyone to come and worship.

    The problem is, vatican only for catholic but jerrusalem? You got moslem, christian, jews, catholic etc. So who can be the government if jerussalem become an independent country like vatican?

    This is a good video...just one suggestion. Never round off death tolls if you have the full number. So 3395 Palestinians died not 3000 . Every life and death matters. Thank you.
