Barack Obama won kudos yesterday at the AIPAC meeting when he said Jerusalem should be "undivided." Apparently this offended Palestinians and now Obama is backtracking faster than the authorities in Zimbabwe. But one of Obama's advisers stated that Jerusalem was a final status issue to be negotiated and would not rule out Jerusalem becoming the capital of a future Palestinian state. I guess Obama was just telling people what they wanted to hear. Call it politics as usual.
