Amidah - part 14 - Jerusalem

Here we pray for the glory of Jerusalem, for the kingship of David's descendants, and for resulting salvation.

Return in mercy to Jerusalem Your city and dwell therein as You have promised; speedily establish therein the throne of David Your servant, and rebuild it, soon in our days, as an everlasting edifice. Blessed are You L-rd, who rebuilds Jerusalem. Speedily cause the scion of David Your servant to flourish, and increase his power by Your salvation, for we hope for Your salvation all day. Blessed are You L-rd, who causes the power of salvation to flourish.

This has been part of daily Jewish prayers since before the time of Jesus.  Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people even when we were scattered among the nations (although there was always a Jewish presence in Israel, as well).  When will the United States government show true leadership in recognizing this fact?
