How does this conflict impact your lives? Thus far the US has had no involvement and our foreign aid spending has remained consistent. Jerusalem will remain a hotspot so long as Israel stands. Hell, Israel will remain a hotspot so long as it stands. Pitting two religious extremes against each other in such a religious region is destined for conflict.

You will have forgotten about this entirely during the next news cycle.
