One would think that America's agreeing to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city somehow flies in the face of mountains of historical evidence that it has always been a Muslim and/or Palestinian city. Not so.
Historically, "Palestine", derived from the Egyptian & Hebrew term "peleshet" meaning migratory wanderers, has NEVER EVER been a country with a capital, much less with the trappings of a nation.
When the Romans invaded Israel, and as an affront to the Jews, they renamed the country Palaestinia. As for its forever being a prominent Muslim city, not so. While Jerusalem is mentioned over eight hundred times in the Bible, it is not mentioned once in the Koran. It has never been an important place or destination for Muslims. Jerusalem is significant now only because it is the capital of a Jewish state. Drill this history lesson into your brains.
