Iíd wager a guess that there a lot of people in this country that have zero clue about the history of the Israel /Palestine situation. If people actually took the time to learn the history of this, they might view what is going on with a different light. Independent thought seems to be a dead art these days.

Obama said Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, that was briliant and worthy of the Nobel peace prize. Trump says it, and heís trying to start a war.

Nikki Haley is praising the decision. If trump doesnít run in 2020, a real possibility, she will be Pences running mate.

Jim. Obama said it once as a candidate in front of a Jewish audience and quickly amended himself.

I think you need to appreciate that not everything is as black and white as you'd like to make it to be.

Saying 1 thing and doing it are not the same . Action without thought is dangerous but this does not seem compute with Trumps faithfull

Like all elected officials, Trump made grand promises that apparently nobody on the left and even many on the right did not believe he would actually do it.

He is doing EXACTLY what he told everyone he would do if they elected him... Have any of you listened to this?

Israel's capital is Jerusalem. Our embassy's tend to go in the capital of the country. That would be JTown.

Difficult? I think not.

I think you're forgetting that little issue of International Law.

Pretty sure the country picks where its capital is.

What if the UN and "international law" decided Fall River was the US Capital?

International Law doesn't decide a damn thing where a country chooses to place its capital.

If "international law" can dictate where a sovereign nation can place it's capital, I guess they can also select the state bird. I am hoping they name it after you.... the coo coo

I think many forget how Israel became a country .. by the UN (league of nations )
and "international law"...

Still haven't seen how this helps the United states

So the Peoples Front of Judea started in 1947 as a result of the UN?

Nothing about the previous 3000 years of struggle?

Having an ally in the Middle East, when we are at war with jihadists, doesnít help us in any way that you see? You donít think we share intelligence with Israel?

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, thatís not complicated. What if next, the jihadistsbdecude they hate music? Do we pretend thereís no such thing as music?

They sure do, and then Trump blabs about it with the Russians.

If memory serves me correctly the city has had many owners over the past 3 millennium.

The 1947 protocol intended to keep the city under International control. When Israel announced all of Jerusalem to be their capital in 1980 it was found to be a violation of international law.

It's complicated, but I don't think you can just issue a mandate and expect everyone to follow.
