this is why the settlements in Jeruselem are illegal Israelis took the city in 67' and now trying to claim it as their capital but the GLOBE has shared it is NOT their capital. Most nations with embassies in Jerusalem relocated their embassies to Tel Aviv following the adoption of Resolution 478. Following the withdrawals of Costa Rica and El Salvador in August 2006, no country maintains its embassy in Jerusalem, although Paraguay and Bolivia have theirs in nearby Jerusalem suburb Mevasseret Zion. The subsequent advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice expressed the view that all States are under an obligation not to recognize the illegal situation in and around East Jerusalem. is this a political argument that people should be observing? as far as i am concerned these are the types of articles people should be aware of....... How many here are aware of res 478?
