If Jerusalem is the capital city of Palestine, why are all the governmant officies in Ramalla?
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE PALESTINIANS AFTER US EMBASSY MOVES TO JERUSALEM?
Why does it matter? After all, Jerusalem has never been the capital of Palestine. The only people in history that have turned Jerusalem into its capital is the Jewish people and no other people.
The capital of the Palestinian Authority is Ramallah.
ABOUT RAMALLAH – THE CAPITAL OF PALESTINE.
The city has been the site of Arabic pronunciation and has undergone many vicissitudes throughout history before it was a major city, it was a predominantly Christian settlement and therefore has many churches, but the Christian population was expelled by the ” By the new Muslim settlers. In 1948 the city was conquered by the Jordanians and then again occupied by Israel in the six-day war and is located between the “Green line” and the Jordan river, which are since 1967 not international borders but temporary ceasefire lines under Israel’s control.
RAMALLAH became the capital of the Palestinian Authority, established in the Oslo Accords
(the 1994 Israel-Palestine Peace Agreement)
The city became famous throughout the world when the Muqata (Palestinian government institutions parallel to the American White House) located in Ramallah and not in Jerusalem, as many mistakenly assume, was surrounded by IDF forces and Arafat was entrenched in it.
IDF soldiers reached the adjacent room with only one wall separating between them, that’s where the Israeli forces stopped.
Israel claims that it did so as a demonstration of power in order to dispel Arafat’s boast that the Palestinian Authority army could conquer Israel. Boasting accompanied by a series of terror attacks inside the State of Israel.
The Israeli operation succeeded and the wave of terror stopped following it.
So why do the Palestinians claim that Jerusalem is their capital? That is wishful thinking backed by 1.4 Billion Muslims around the world pushing a lie with so much force until they hope it will become reality. today only a minority of nations in the UN stand for the historical point of view. Most follow the Muslim “Narrative” (a story) according to which, All of Israel has always been Muslim.
