The ever-quotable chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee knew the answer and jumped on the State Department for appearing to claim that Jerusalem isn't even inside Israel.

Clearly, only the Big Iranian Brother Obama and the Arabist pro-Iranian US State Department can show disrespect and to the spineless liberal Jewish Elites and Reform Jews of the Democratic Party that will not dare to stand up to the dictator and Mozlem Brother Messiah Obama. In the new America that is falling to anarchy and bankruptcy by its own secretive president, the self hating liberal Jews continue to go blind after Obama that they put in power and finance his re-election campaign through their owned anti-israel media of the NY Times and Associated Obama’s Press AP. America is falling fast and furious to its lowest point in history under the Obama regime that act behind the backs of Americans to convert the Middle East to Mozlem Brotherhood’s Shariya law caliphate that will ‘swallow’ and destroy the Jewish state. As Mozlem brother born to Mozlem father and as scholar of Madrassa in Indonesia who studied the Quran Obama is pushing the Shariya laws all over the Middle East and Africa and support the terrorist organizations that seek the destruction of Israel. However, Obama knows how to lie to the Jews when his lies are discovered and convince them that he is their friend. However, the fact that Obama will never recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the fact that his name Barack is the name of Mohamad horse that brought his in his dream to Jerusalem prove that Obama is secretly defending the Iranian regime nukes from Israeli attack. Liberal Jews of America continue to stab Israel and the Jewish people in the back as they always supported the worst dictators that seek the demise of Israel.

The answer to the question is NO, Jerusalem is NOT in Israel.

Jerusalem is not now and never was a part of the territory set aside by the UN for a Jewish state in 1947.

Israel knows this as do all other countries in the world.

The zionist regime in Israel made a unilateral decision to illegally occupy Jerusalem and confiscate Palestinian owned land there after it launched pre-emptive attacks on Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and a USS navel ship in 1967.

Israel is in violation of the 1967 UN Security Council Resolution 242 demanding Israel's withdrawal from all land belonging to the countries it had attacked.

There is NO COUNTRY PALESTNE CLOWN! In 1944, Jews paid between $1000 and $1100 per acre mostly for arid or semi-arid land; in the same year, rich black soil in Iowa was selling for about $110 per acre (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)" Palestinians squatted on the land and paid????
Ready for this??
Nothing, NADA, ZILCH!!
--Land Ownership in Palestine, 1880-1948
----------
According to British government statistics, prior to the establishment of the State of Israel, 8.6% of the land area now known as Israel was owned by Jews; 3.3% by Arabs who remained there; 16.5% by Arabs who left the country. More than 70% of the land was owned by the BRITISH GOVERNMENT!!! Under international law, ownership passed to Israel in 1948. The public lands included most of the Negev Desert --Survey of 1946, British Mandate Government

The Arabs have muddied the world for decades with their furious protest that their land has been “stolen” from them. One might take seriously such a statement if it came from a pacifist people such as the Tibetans, who had quietly inhabited their land for ages before it was seized by the Communist Chinese in 1950. The claim is laughable coming from the Arabs, who in the early Middle Ages conquered and reduced to slavery and penury ancient peoples and civilizations stretching from the borders of Persia to the Atlantic; who in 1947 rejected an Arab state in Palestine alongside a Jewish state and sought to obliterate the nascent Jewish state; who never called for a distinct Palestinian Arab state until the creation of the terrorist PLO in 1964—sixteen years after the founding of the state of Israel; and who to this moment continue to seek Israel’s destruction, an object that would be enormously advanced by the creation of the Arab state they demand. The Arab claim to sovereign rights west of the Jordan is only humored today because of a fatal combination of world need for Arab oil, leftist Political Correctness that has cast the Israelis as “oppressors,” and, of course, good old Jew-hatred.

Even if what you say was true,why can't you and your people respect the fact that Jews think of Jerusalem as a very religious site. That is where their ancestors built the temple. Don't say. It wasn't . The romans destroyed the Jewish temple in Jerusale. That's all their is to it.

Jerusalem is a stolen city.

Israel claims it by right of conquest...not legal by Geneva and camp David accords.

Every country on earth has claimed territory based on right of conquest. You think the U.S. didn't claim Chicago by conquering it from the Native Americans? Should we give it back to them?

Why should Israel be the only country on earth that has to give back land it acquired in a defensive war?

Everyone knows if Israel lost control of Jerusalem it wouldn't be 24 hours before the Western Wall was vandalized or destroyed.

You are correct. America also took land that was part of Mexico,Texas,N.M,Arizona,Ca. In 1967, Egypt attacked Israel and any land that Israel took during that battle was to be able to better protect themselves. Israel is surrounded bt hostile enemies and some people think they should just sit there and let it happen.

I dont see israel giving Palis rights to casino revenues...

Israel stole that land from a group of people, with no provocation.

The Israelis committed several attrocities during the theft, making every subsequent seizure illegal under international law.

There is no way to trivialize it minimize, the wrong doings of the phenomena that is Israel.
