This reminds me of Trump's announcement to exit the Paris Accord. All manner of hub-bub created about it - except we can't exit the Paris Accord until Nov. 2020. So...nothing.

Trump loves his "just wait and see" line, I suppose.

I am thinking of that word that begins with retar... oops, sorry!

No, only TODAY has Israel had Jerusalem recognized as its capital city. That is the important development.

You are spreading false news. The embassy is not part of this. That will happen soon. He is doing it a stage at a time. The RECOGNITION is the development, not the embassy.

LOOK with open eyes instead of through the illusion of your own misunderstanding and inability to even read MSM News:

www.bbc.co.uk...


Jerusalem is Israel's capital, says Donald Trump




President Donald Trump has announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital, overturning decades of official US policy. Mr Trump described the move as "a long overdue step" to advance the Middle East peace process. The fate of the ancient city is one of the thorniest issues between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel called Mr Trump's move "historic" but there has been sharp international criticism.


Is that not plain enough for you? Clinton nor any other President has ever done that. They were leaving Israel dangling on a thread over it.

You are fabricating and misunderstanding the whole thing. The embassy is a detail. This is the big news. I don't even care if the embassy is in Palestine, lol.

JERUSALEM IS OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED AS ISRAEL'S CAPITAL CITY BY THE U.S DURING PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY.

I know that is hard for some to stomach, lol, but no amount of denial will make it go away. Trump is living up to his name once again.

Do you understand yet, OP? I tried to cut it up into very small baby size pieces for you.

So why do you think muslims are upset about the embassy?

Do ether of those things bother you?

I just went to the White House site, and found this quote:



NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and that the United States Embassy to Israel will be relocated to Jerusalem as soon as practicable.

I think he signed the proclamation, and did not postponed it

From that news article I linked to, that is the official BBC News:


He said he was directing the US state department to begin preparations to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.


You are being deceptive OP and reporting your own illusion, not what is actually taking place.

Read it good. Read it real good and let the truth sink in.

Meanwhile in Jerusalem, the municipality has illuminated the walls of the Old City in red, white and blue to show thanks to Mr Trump's recognition of it as Israel's capital.
Mayor Nir Barkat says the main entrance to the city will also be lit in America's colors and American flags will be flown across major streets of the city on Thursday. .........I personally believe there rubbing it in and the old saying goes, the one stirring the #, you will gets some on you.....

Which is interesting since Hamas gave up control back to a unified government. I guess the word of Hamas means nothing and they arent interested in peace.

This is for Palestinian consumption I believe. Look for Trump to begin brokering negotiations and now he has a really big card to play.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman told Mr Trump, according to a Saudi readout of their telephone conversation.

Declaring Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the King said, "would constitute a flagrant provocation to all Muslims, all over the world. ......all over the world is a lot of Muslims.....this looks like a different kind of war game
Lets see what happens next.

If I read it right, someone was asking when Obama said Jerusalem was the capital of Israel? Not only did he say it was the capital of Israel, he said it should be undivided.



So Obama says it and it's okay with the world.

Trump says it and it's Armageddon.

Figures.

When Obama said it, it was probably words of wisdom and a sign of his greatness.

Trump?

Well he's a Cheeto Moron!

Except a delayed time line in years is not attached to his actions in Israel. The state department has been directed to find a new location for our embassy as soon as logistically possible to do so.

Which religion has been around longer?
Judaism or Islam?

Hint: Judaism has by a long time. Islam has no religious claims in this area, only military conquest ones. If that is the standard they will use then Israel is justified in using the same standard.

We have 6 months to wait I guess. Strange he said he would do it then turned around and basically vetoed his own announcement. Very strange.

Did you read the full OP? Trump did exactly what Clinton, Bush, and Obama did. He still signed the same waiver of the 1995 law which delays the transfer of our embassy to Jerusalem for 6 months. So Trump in this instance is exactly what you're claiming he is not; he said one thing but still signed the waiver like the others did. From the OP's link:

After his speech, Trump signed a proclamation recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, as well as the waiver delaying the move another six months.


ETA: As the OP noted, every single President since the law was passed has signed 6 month waivers every 6 months specifically to delay the transfer of our embassy there. Trump even signed the waiver before.


Ok then there is no need for the media or Muslims to flip out.

I hope they too realize its has been the US policy for years, and even if the embassy does move there is no need for violence.

Also, Senate passed this 90-0 back in June.

I don't think it's a big deal one way or the other.

Israel sees Jerusalem as their capital, it's their capital.

Their country. They can make a Starbucks their capital if the wanted.

Who knows? Sounds kind of counterproductive to his announcement. I'm sure some will come in saying it's a brilliant move on Trump's part... somehow.
'

Wait a minute.

You were on the other thread discussing how horrible this makes trump, and how people were going to die over this.

Now here you are basically admitting its no change whatsoever.

Unreal.
