The Capital of Israel

US Republican presidential candidate John McCain said on Tuesday that he supported Israel's claim to Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.

"I support Jerusalem as the capital of Israel," McCain said in Jordan on the latest leg of a visit to the region.

I heard George W. Bush say the exact same thing by live video address in 2000 at a giant AIPAC dinner meeting (don't ask) in Washington, DC. Every Republican presidential candidate says this. Every election year AIPAC falls for it. It is part of the quadrennial peacock dance between the US and the Likud.
