Israel's leader does not want to share Jerusalem
JERUSALEM – Israel's leader on Sunday dismissed a call from a key government partner to share the holy city of Jerusalem with the Palestinians, a reminder of the obstacles facing already troubled peacemaking efforts.
Conflicting claims to east Jerusalem lie at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The dispute over the area, home to sensitive Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites, has derailed past peace talks and spilled into violence. Palestinians claim the sector as the capital of their future state.
Netanyahu's defense minister, Ehud Barak of the centrist Labor Party, called for sharing Jerusalem with the Palestinians. But a government official said Barak's idea does not reflect the government's view.

The U.S doesn't want to hurt Israel, and why should it? Because it's taking it's time in negotiating peace? Is that worth hurting the Israeli army, something which might have far reaching consequences considering the state of Lebanon at the moment?
Israel is a pawn. The U.S doesn't want to risk reducing or stopping the aid to Israel because it might open up a spot for someone else to become Israel's BFF..
Money makes the world turn.
Hamas is still attacking Israel, just yesterday a soldier was severely injured from sniper fire in a shoot out on the border..
