The typical American voter has no interest in or knowledge about Jerusalem as a capital of Israel. This is true no matter how significant the ramifications of the administration's actions are in regard to Jerusalem. Only Jews would be actively following the administration's actions on the subject. I cannot begin to guess how American Jews think...

And, I should remind you, that there is a large Jewish Republican organization, as well as Jews-for-Palin.

Less than 100 days before the US presidential elections, the Obama administration is openly denying Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem. Can this be a vote-getter?

Last week, the Emergency Committee for Israel released an ad titled, "O, Jerusalem." The commercial showed administration officials squirming when asked to name the capital of Israel, and highlighted the recent refusals of White House and State Department spokespeople to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel's capital city. The underlying message of the ad was that the administration's policy is out of step with the views of the majority of Americans.

Barack Obama's position is certainly a political...
