  • Jerusalem, Israel

    The president’s guide to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

    Changing the status of the entire city could derail Trump's peace plan, while naming 'West Jerusalem' will disappoint Israelis; hence, he'll likely remain ambiguous

    And the usual full retard reactions from Abbas, Erdogan, and the clowns in the OIC:

    Trump phones Sissi on Jerusalem moves as Abbas rallies world to intervene

    In calls with Middle East leaders, US president expresses 'intention' to relocate embassy; officials say he will recognize capital but likely still sign waiver

            I think Aren is correct to note the following:

            Most likely, Trump will merely say “Jerusalem,” thus allowing all sides to interpret his statement as they wish, Gilboa speculated. Israel will then be able to cite the law and the president’s previous commitments in arguing he meant the entire city. The Palestinians, meanwhile, will be able to cling to the hope that he was only referring to West Jerusalem.

                True, but Trump is moving closer to US recognition of Jerusalem than any other preceding President.

                  Meh if Trump really wanted to sabotage the peace process then he would have had the embassy within mortar range of Gaza.

                    Understand. I know this is a long process and shouldn't be rushed. This is one of his campaign promises, hope he follows through.

                        Lol right.

                        Do you think an official declaration of Jersualem as Israel's capital would invoke an Arab 1948 response?

                          Not sure what you mean by "1948 response" ... a war?

                              Welllllll. I'd better go buy some pop-corn. This should be interested, at least when viewed from a distance.
