Obama vs Obama On Jerusalem

In 2008, when Obama was running for president, he made it clear that he believed then that the city was a part of Israel, as we noted in a previous post. The presidential hopeful made this stance so clear that he even contended that Jerusalem must remain Israel’s capital, even at the end of the negotiation process. At the time, Obama said that any agreement with the Palestinians, “must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state with secure, recognized, defensible borders. And Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.”
