Although the Obama Administration and Supreme Court refuse to recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, the Jewish People didn’t make it up. It’s hard to make up 3000 years of history, archeology, scriptures, and tradition. When Jerusalem and the holy Temple that was built there, were destroyed by the Romans over 2000 years ago, the Jewish People, scattered in exile to the four corners of the earth, continued to build their synagogues and pray facing Jerusalem. At every wedding celebration, the groom breaks a glass as a remembrance of the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. At the end of the day of attonement prayers, for 2000 years, Jews have sang “Next year in Jerusalem”. At the end of every Passover Seder Jewish families sing “Next year in Jerusalem”. Could there be any question in the collective mind of the world that upon the return of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel they would make Jerusalem their capital? After all, the decision was made by King David three thousand years earlier.
