There is East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem. The East is part of ‘occupied territory ‘ and thus part of a hoped for future Palestinian State. West Jerusalem is controlled by the Israelis. We have Consulates in both E and W Jerusalem (Nice new ones since I was there). By calling Jerusalem the Capital Of Israel it A) Legitimizes Israel when a group of people still want to wipe it off the face of the Earth B) Negates it from becoming a part of a new Palestinian State.
That’s a very very short synopsis. Lots of nuance in there. Hopefully it was somewhat helpful
