Barack Obama, Ramallah 21st March 2013:
“The people of Palestine, Mr. President {Abbas}, who receive you today aspire to attain the simplest rights — the right to freedom, independence and peace, and look forward to that day to come in which they exercise normal and natural life over the land of the state of Palestine — the independent state of Palestine — along the borders of the 4th of June, 1967, with Jerusalem, the “Lady of the Cities,” as its capital, alongside the state of Israel.
Obama has informed the world that the official American policy is that Jerusalem would be the shared capital of Israel & Palestine. 

Isn't that in contradiction with what he said to AIPAC back in 2008????

Barack Obama, Washington, D.C 4th June 2008:
“Let me be clear. Israel's security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable. The Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive, and that allows them to prosper — but any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel's identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”
