What peace process? Bending over the Arab leaders. Siding with the Shia neighbors maybe? Obama SHOULD have done this. Instead he back stabbed Israel and even refused to meet with them if I remember correctly.

Trump doesn't have a stepson. He does have a son-in-law.

Turkey is a Muslim country and Jerusalem is sacred to Muslims , America is legitimising Israels claim to Jerusalem by signaling the moving of their embassy.


How does the location of an embassy legitimize Israel's claim to Jerusalem?

Does placing an embassy there add to Israel's claim (considering that the US already accepts the legitimacy of the state of Israel)? Does it detract from the claims of the Palestinian Authority (who consider their capital to be East Jerusalem)? Does it change anything but the small area of land that is 'owned' by the US?

Jerusalem is an important city to all Abrahamic tradition faiths, a situation that has existed for thousands of years. The majority of adherents to those faiths have cohabited there without incident for a long time.

I'm sure Jerusalem has enough accommodation for an embassy office, just as it does for a new hotel or supermarket chain.

An embassy in Jerusalem does not give Jerusalem to the Israeli's.

So the more apt example would be France says they are moving or building a new embassy in Washington dc.


Except that there are no UN backed treaties between the US and the Native American Indians specifying that Washington must be shared. Jerusalem is ground zero for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Trump's move is an intentional provocation.


How is having an embassy there stopping it from being shared?

Syria didn't work out, Isis is all but dead.

This is just a way to continue the wars in the middle East.

Watch as Syria and/or Iran gets some how tied to the violence that will no doubt happen due to this.

Supporting Jewish people equals literally Hitler.

Some of you are being extremely ridiculous. Please think before you decide to post anything


You should think before you write.
The US has no right meddling in other Nations business.
If the intention is being neutral and working toward peace, well this is was disastrous idea.
At least Trump is honest about the fact he favours Israel.

And no Israel or Jews is not synonymous to Hitler. Netanyahu is. The apartheid system is. Which NOT ALL JEWS SUPPORT.
And also, not every Jewish people supports this dumb idea.

The blind nationalism sweeping America is troubling and does look like some Hitler type sh**

Jerusalem belongs to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Sometimes, you have to say enough is enough and do what is necessary to solve problems and stop the bad behaviors of dangerous people doing dangerous things. There is a time for everything under the sun.

Timing is everything.

It legitimizes the Israeli occupation of the Old Quarter, and symbolizes approval of "Greater Israel."

Great point, Berlin was divided, capitol and still shared.

No, the capitol was in Bonn and only moved to Berlin after the wall came down.

You realize one of our biggest allies are Sunni Muslims? If Islam is such a threat to Israel then why are they (Israel) allies with America who is supplying Sunni Muslims with weapons?

I'll tell you why, because nations like Israel, America and Saudi Arabia benefit from endless wars and the suffering of others. War is a business and those three supply each other with those endless wars (money).

How's this bad for America?


It provides a pretext for violence against Americans, and encourages the Greater Israel faction to begin ethnic cleansing in earnest. This can lead to a general war in the region between American allies, which is why Vladimir Putin must be dancing the chechotka at the news.


So your take is that the innocent muslims will have no choice but to become violent against Israel, and then the evil Israelies can kill them all.

Unbelievable.

Global acknowledgment of the will of a nation, is not meddling in that nation's business. It's acknowledgment of the will of that nation.

Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama all declared Jerusalem was the capital of Israel, and even declared it should be undivided.

But yeah, Trump is the problem.

You're really just that dense aren't you? No one is saying that certain Muslims don't have any other choice but to become violent, we are simply saying that they WILL! So why provoke them?!

Stop being so dishonest! You're misrepresenting what we're saying whether intentionally or unintentionally.

Global ??
You must be joking right..

The whole world doesn’t recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The US just did.
With Israel, that’s two nations. The whole world came out to say how this was a bad idea. Even the pope for god sake

Doesn’t matter how many time you repeat a lie, it’s still a lie.

So having the US and many other countries acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel didnt legitimize it?

The 1995 vote to put the embassy their didnt legitimize it?

Ridiculous.

But k, lets take this the oppoiste way.

Isnt the US not having its embassy their then telling jews they have no legitimacy in claiming the Old Quarter?

So I guess jews should just start killing people over this, I mean, we are instigating them.
