Jerusalem Recognized? - Page 2
Before the country of Israel was created, the land had passed through many hands. Going backwards in time, it's been in the British Mandate, the Ottoman Empire, the Mamluk Calphate, the Crusaders Colony, the Ayyubid and more. The only time Jerusalem was the capital city before Israel was created was back in King David's time (1000 BCE). Since then it has never been a capital city of any country or society, until 1947.
