Israel: Palestinians angered over Romney's claim
Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat said on Monday that presumptive Republican candidate Mitt Romney's assertion that Jerusalem is Israel's capital is "absolutely unacceptable."
In a speech in Jerusalem on Sunday evening that followed a day of meetings with Israel's leaders, Romney said it was a "moving experience to be in Jerusalem," and described the city as "Israel's capital." He suggested that he would move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem if he were elected president.
