You should listen to the Presidents speech on the matter, it's spot on. Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible of 800 times. It is not mentioned in the Koran once.
Damn that's dumb. A Western leader, relying on a book of mostly Iron Age fairy tales and legends to help decide a modern day question of statehood.

All parties involved think that their scripture is relevant, regardless of their veracity; to exclude them from the equation would not result in an amicable solution.  I suppose they could follow your ideology, to wit, "If it feels good do it," but we see how that's playing out in California very clearly, what with it no longer being illegal to knowingly transmit HIV to a sex partner, and gay pornstars bullying females into suicide for not having sex with them.

Btw, there's plenty of reasons the President is basing his decision on, as you acknowledge with the use of your word 'help'; and even if it weren't a factor it would be foolish to at least not pay lip service to it.

I think you're confusing Islam with muslims. What the hell is extreme islam? There is only islam.

A Muslim is someone who practices or follows Islam.  This has always been my understanding, and Wikipedia has the same interpretation. 

If you have a different opinion, would you be willing to share your source?

Right...Islam remains the same, it's the Muslim that changes. There's not 'extreme' Islam, but there are 'extreme' Muslims (e.g. Muslims who take the practice of their faith to allahu ahkbar ends)

Religion , worst invention of mankind on so many levels , yet takes too much importance in world conflicts/history and serves as an easy excuse for basically everything.

Sad , let's go back to video games

Which secular land is this?

Islam and Judaism are both primitive, anti-christian religions/cultures.

All of the main religions are by their nature primitive.

Christianity is as bad (in fact in many ways worse) as the rest of them.

I don't consider religion at all primitive, whether you believe it to be truth or just a placebo.

The Ego, mans drive for more, more, more, has evolved us to be the alpha predator.  However, for a great many people, that never ending desire for more also produces an inescapable sense of dissatisfaction.

Religion is one of the tools available that allows us to quell this often raging beast, by moving our focus onto something else rather than our own dissatisfied ego.

Have you ever known formerly unhappy people who have "found Jesus" and are now (mostly) much happier?  Whether you believe their happiness is "real" or not, their endorphin response is still the same.  And from a scientific perspective, that's really what happiness is mostly about anyhow.

Like any tool, religion can be misused.  It doesn't mean it's fundamentally bad.  Though Stalin might disagree.

Happiness is rooted in selflessness, which is the core of Christ's lessons and law.

Because we need to be told by a book of myths and legends to be nice to each other? Or threatened with eternal hellfire if we're not nice to each other?

Please.

So much commentary on scripture and yet constant demonstration of such little understanding of it.

You or I might not, but some people do

That's what i have come to realize as i have gotten older. Don't assume the average person is as intelligent, strong minded, or moral as you because THEY AREN'T

This whole "every person or society is the same and equally and innately good" and "all religions are equally good/bad" is some dangerous ass bullshit and it gets naive people that buy into it HURT
