Jerusalem is de facto the capital of Israel, Israel calls Jerusalem its capital (as do most books and maps) but most countries don't officially recognize it. This is because Jerusalem is a holy city to all 3 major Abrahamic religions and plays a central role in the conflict, so its ownership by Israel remains a sensitive topic throughout the Islamic world. The Palestinian Authority also claims Jerusalem as its capital, even though they don't control it.
If someone like Donald Trump were to change US Foreign Policy to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, all will be merry-rosey with Israel, but meanwhile the Palestinians and Islamic world will be very very angry.

Israel already moved their capital to Jerusalem but haven't been recognized by majority of countries of the world.

It creates yet another point of conflict and another impediment to resolving the Middle East imbroglio. Only a complete moron would try to make things harder.
