It was an unusual week in the history of Jerusalem. Simultaneously, nothing changed; and everything changed.
What changed was 70 years of US diplomacy and international consensus on the status of Jerusalem. What changed was belief in the possibility of a genuine 2-State solution. What changed was that Donald Trump was, for once, telling us the truth.
As he said in his speech, “this is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality.”
That “reality” of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital city was also acknowledgement of decades of failed American diplomacy.
