Obama Asked 'Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel'

The Jewish National Fund has called on President Obama to “recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” The organization was founded in 1901 to buy and develop Palestinian territories for Jewish settlement. As of 2007, the JNF owned 13% of “the total land in Israel.”

“Since its inception, the JNF has planted over 240 million trees in Israel. It has also built 180 dams and reservoirs, developed 250,000 acres (1,000 km2) of land and established more than 1,000 parks.”-Wik

So will President Obama openly recognize Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel? Don’t hold your breath.
