“If Jerusalem will not be the capital of Palestine,” he said, “there will be no state at all.”
These are the words of Mahmoud Abbas. He said he only met with Netanyahu three times in the past two years, which amounted to only about fifteen hours of direct conversation between the two men. He also told LBC that he did not plan for a third term as Palestinian Authority president when expected elections are held next May.
As for the possibility of a third Intifada should both negotiations and the UN bid fail, Abbas dismissed the idea. “Armed struggle is destroying us,” he said of the Palestinians

When was a city ever capital of two different nations?
Even there was a wall dividing Berlin, the city was not the capital of two nations. While East Berlin were the capital of communist Germany, Bonn were the capital of free West-Germany.
The Germans never accepted a One city two capital solutions. Only when the full city was liberated in 1989, Berlin again became the capital of a united Germany.
Likewise the Jewish people must never accept the demand from Islam, that the city of Jerusalem shall be divided. Jerusalem was liberated in 1967 from Islamic occupation, and is the capital of only one state: The state of Israel.
then shall enter the gates of this city kings and princes sitting on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their princes, accompanied by the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and this city shall remain forever.
And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
